WHO WE ARE
Piñon Post was created to bring New Mexico true conservative news, covering politics and current events. Founded by John Block, his website New Mexico Politics with John Block, has transformed into the Post.
John has dedicated his life to fighting for conservative causes in the great state of New Mexico, including work at the New Mexico House of Representatives, various Republican campaigns, and volunteering for President Donald Trump’s 2015-16 campaign.
As a Trump supporter from day one, John was dubbed the “most active supporter” of President Trump by the Santa Fe Reporter when he bought massive Trump signs and erected them across the state in 2016.
Throughout his work in New Mexico politics, John has fought against out-of-state special interests and radical legislation such as Mike Bloomberg’s 2017 sugar tax proposal in Santa Fe and 2019’s abortion up-to-birth bill, HB-51, at the New Mexico Legislature.
With the Piñon Post, John hopes to bring true representation to conservatives in the Land of Enchantment and cut through the mainstream media red tape by providing independent, fair, and conservative journalism to the Land of Enchantment.
John has an A.A.S. in Film Production from the Santa Fe Community College, a B.A. in Business Administration from Rutgers University, and will finish his M.B.A. at Eastern New Mexico University in December 2020.
