Bob Good Wins - Conservatives Take Back Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District

In a stunning defeat reminiscent of conservative Dave Bratt’s defeat of incumbent House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, full spectrum conservative Bob Good defeated incumbent RINO Congressman Denver Riggleman in the Fifth District Republican Convention.  And the margin wasn’t even close – Bob Good booked 58 percent of the vote to Riggleman’s 42 percent.

Conservatives Go After Riggleman For Joining Democrats On Syria Vote

We doubt any conservative who worked in Denver Riggleman’s hard-fought 2018 campaign expected they would have to turn around and work to defeat him in 2020, but the grassroots campaign to replace RINO GOP Rep. Riggleman with a solid liberty-loving conservative has just gained more steam after Riggleman abandoned President Trump once again to vote with the Democrats.

Local GOP Committee Strikes Back – Votes To Censure RINO Congressman

In a sober, frank, open and honest discussion of Rep. Denver Riggelman's voting record the Rappahannock County Republican Committee voted to censure the freshman GOP Representative for voting to undermine President Trump’s program of "American jobs for American workers" and undermining Trump’s pledge to stay out of other countries’ civil wars and to refrain from military commitments not clearly tied to our own national security.

Riggelman Betrays Virginia Workers With Immigration Stands

After decades of stagnant wages (due in some measure to pressure from illegal alien labor) American workers in the construction industry are now receiving a much-deserved raise, however, by co-sponsoring H.R. 1740 Rep. Denver Riggelman wants to dilute the construction labor market by adding foreign workers thereby depressing the wages of American workers in one of the few totally domestic labor markets.

Constitutional Conservatives Recruiting Candidate To Run Against RINO Rep. Denver Riggelman

An informally constituted grassroots coalition is apparently serious about vetting and promoting one candidate from among RINO Riggelman’s potential challengers in the expectation that they can identify a candidate who can not only defeat Riggleman for the GOP nomination in Virginia's fifth congressional district, but go on to win in November 2020.

Mr. President, End The Congressional Obamacare Scam

It is time to make Congress live like the rest of us, and end their illegal “small business” Obamacare scam and their gold-plated subsidies and see how fast they run to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market system.

The Establishment GOP Is Committing Suicide By Lie

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

Rudy Takala, Washington Examiner

The presidential election has given rise to similarly historic circumstances, with nontraditional candidates surging largely by emphasizing a need to restrict immigration. Brat said he is proud to observe that the mood in his district served largely to foreshadow the mood nationally.

Michelle Malkin, CNS News

Newsflash to GOP elites: Getting Cantor's support is not like landing a prized marlin. It's like hooking one of those hideous bottom-feeding blobfish named the world's ugliest creature.

Midterm Elections: Is The GOP Finally Getting It? Nope

By ignoring illegal immigration and border security it appears the House GOP leadership have reverted to type and are engaged in the kind of meaningless “messaging” that they did under Eric Cantor’s leadership in the pre-2010 election “Pledge to America.”

Scalise Lets GOP-Estab. Lobbyist Pick Staff

Streiff, Red State

Steve Scalise made a big mistake in letting GOP-E lobbyist John Feehery pick his staff. People are policy. You can’t carry out a conservative agenda opposed to crony capitalism if you allow a DC lobbyist who outwardly disdains everything from cutting goverment waste to homeschooling pick your staff.

Eric Cantor Abandons Constituents; Races to Big Money

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

For Cantor, quitting early doesn’t look good. Cantor gave up his majority leader job July 31, a sensible move, as a lame-duck. But then he immediately announced he wouldn’t serve as a rank-and-file member. It confirms the grassroots skepticism about Congress being full of self-dealers.

House GOP Leaders' Plan Is Amnesty And We Can Prove It

The House GOP leadership bill would allow Obama to "parole" millions of illegal aliens who would then gain permanent legal resident status after a year and who could then apply for U.S. citizenship after five years. UPDATED: In unprecedented win for grassroots, late Friday the House passed conservative border bills.

Like Dave Brat, Joe Carr has focused on Lamar Alexander’s record of supporting immigration reform, which the campaign sees as his Achilles heel. “There’s no question it’s his greatest weakness, because it’s my greatest strength,” Carr said.

“The White House has criticized Israel’s government for not offering concessions to the very terrorists who have driven Israeli citizens into bomb shelters and who choose to operate from residential areas, using innocent bystanders as human shields."
