The Ghost of Eric Cantor Still a Factor in Virginia’s 5th District Republican Primary

Hanover GOP Committee Commandeered By the TEA Party? Nonsense!

A local RINO Blog who’s name I will not mention other than to say they all lost their bearing and then their mind and drifted so far to the left I expect them to begin shilling for Bernie any day now since Jeb Bush dropped out, has declared last Thursday night’s election of the Hanover […]

Congressman Dave Brat Just Keeps Doing The Right Things

As a Libertarian, I am used to disappointment. Some Libertarians choose to fight the good fight amongst other libertarians, some amongst civil libertarians within the Democrat Party – I’ve chosen to fight the battle amongst Republicans. Considering a Republican Leadership ruled by Boehner and McConnell, it is no great surprise that most evenings I feel […]

Ted Cruz Calls Out Mitch McConnell for Lying – MUST SEE VIDEO

Ted Cruz just destroyed Mitch McConnell on the floor of the US Senate. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have done more to destroy America than Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama have done combined.

I’m 18 and here’s my take on Brat, Cantor, and Trammel

Dear Editor, The 2014 election cycle, like most election cycles these days was brutal. The commercials, the mudslinging, the back and forth comments between the people. Since June I’ve read a lot of things in The Mechanicsville Local and elsewhere that really frustrated me. But, in the end, I realize when your candidate and candidates […]

Cantor’s Own Supporters Caused His Defeat by Withholding Criticism

It is quite ironic that the very same issue I ran into with Nancy Russell at the Hanover County Republican Committee – where I was called out for criticizing “one of our own” – is the very thing that led to Eric Cantor’s defeat. “We are supposed to support our fellow Republicans,” the admonition went.

It was that kind of day for Eric Cantor. Debbie Wetlaufer was hard at work at the Lee Davis precinct in Hanover County during yesterday’s primary election. This young man was representing Eric Cantor and, well, he was a lot like the Maytag repairman. Not because Cantor wasn’t broken. But because he was beyond repair […]

GIVE SOME CREDIT where IT IS DUE: GERRY BAUGH

As we continue to feel aftershocks from the Bratquake that hit central Virginia yesterday, I was reminded by an unimpeachable source (Bob Shannon) that Gerry Baugh had worked hard to try to talk Dr. Brat into running against Cong.
