Do you want to have voice in deciding who we can vote for in general election in November? Then you have to show up, and you have to vote on June 12 in either the Democratic or Republican Primary.
What is Shak Hill doing to win the primary election? He is running against Comstock’s record (see 2018-05-03_Final Who Represents you), and he showing us why he thinks he has a better chance, as the more Conservative candidate, of winning in the general election (see 2018-05-03_Final How Shak Wins).
Hill provided a response to the insinuations made by ShadyShak.com in Barbara Burns “Comstock” Can’t Defend Her Horrible Record in Congress. Here is an excerpt.
Never a good sign for an incumbent politician, when she can’t run on her record and instead is reduced to personally attacking her primary opponent, an honorable military veteran with a distinguished history of service to his country that she doesn’t have.
But since she has decided to engage in the politics of personal destruction, and reveal HER true character to a District that has long suspected it (hey, you don’t get an organization committed to ‘Dumping’ you unless you’re really THAT bad!), let’s clear the air, shall we?
Will ShadyShak.com fool some people? Yeah, innuendo and half-truths work on some. Too often we look at the seriousness of the charge, and we don’t fully consider the source or the paucity of relevant facts.
Unfortunately, it is easier to contrive innuendo and half-truths than it is to refute such nonsense. Consider the first two stories on ShadyShak.com. These silly slurs are sourced from “The Washington Free Beacon” which receives its funding from Paul Singer (see here and here).
- “Virginia’s Shak Hill ‘Likes’ Hardcore Porn on Twitter”
- “SHAK HILL HAS BEEN POSTING ABOUT PENIS ENLARGEMENT ALL SUMMER”
Singer is a big donor to Comstock (see here). If you look at the Beacon’s articles, they are practically written tongue-in-cheek. These articles are not serious journalism. They are just frivolous hit pieces.

Singer is a never-Trumper, favors open borders, and advocates same-sex marriage. Ostensibly, Singer says he is a Republican, but he holds the Democrat, not the Republican position, on critical issues. With friends like this, who needs enemies?
Can we afford to keep Comstock in Congress? No. Look at what is happening to our president, Donald Trump. To move Trump’s agenda forward, we need a Conservative Republican in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. Consider that the Democrats accused Trump of colluding with the Russians to win the election. Yet it is obvious that Trump that did not steal the election. In fact, the Democrats came closer to trying to steal the election. So it is that one prominent pundit, Victor Davis Hanson, began a column with these words.
The more Mueller searches for hypothetical lawbreaking, the more he ignores the actual lawbreakers. The country is about to witness an investigatory train wreck.
In one direction, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation train is looking for any conceivable thing that President Donald Trump’s campaign team might have done wrong in 2016.
The oncoming train is slower but also larger. It involves congressional investigations, Department of Justice referrals, and inspector general’s reports — mostly focused on improper or illegal FBI and DOJ behavior during the 2016 election. (continued here)
Our nation is divided. The Mueller investigation of just a sign that one side is furiously determined to win no matter what. Our side, unfortunately, is still getting angry enough to fight. We can’t wait. If we don’t want a train wreck, we need to derail the other side’s train before we crash.
- On the other side we have the “swamp creatures”. These are the demagogues, the lobbyists, the corporate interests, the labor unions, the Liberal mass media, and the so-called non-profits who feed off our government. These love the easy money, and they have organized to keep their place at the feeding trough. These see easy money as the reward for victory and working for a living as the cost of defeat. These have allied themselves with tens of millions of Americans who believe they are entitled to government money and to special privileges at the expense of their fellow citizens.
- The other side? Our side? These are people who accept the limited utility of government. They understand what education and charity programs require for success. To properly educate someone or to help someone who needs charity, we must love them. When we allow our fellows to use “unlimited” government funds to feed themselves, cloth themselves, shelter themselves, educate themselves, and so forth, they can easily get confused. Instead of being grateful for a gift, they can convince themselves they have a right to something they did not earn. We risk becoming corrupt. Instead of helping our neighbors, we may find ourselves being enslaved by them instead. For example, look at the teacher’s unions. Are these organization, major funders of the Democratic Party, helping our children or just standing in the way of school choice, which would allow parents to send their children to decent schools? Are government-run schools good for children or good for labor unions?
What is American government supposed to be about? The rule of law. What is the law? WHAT WOULD IT MEAN TO MAKE AMERICA AMERICA AGAIN?).summarized the matter repeatedly (see
The law is justice.
Unfortunately, as Andrew C. McCarthy explains in Outrageous Redactions to the Russia Report our Justice Department cannot be trusted. Here in this column McCarthy begins by observing what DOJ and FBI hid about their investigation of Michael Flynn, Trump’s top campaign supporter and former national-security adviser.
The FBI and DOJ have been burying the investigators’ questionable judgments and information helpful to Flynn.
Cute how this works: Kick off the week with some “the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted” bombast from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, by which he rationalizes that his defiance of subpoenas and slow-walking document production to Congress — which is probing investigative irregularities related to the 2016 campaign — is required by DOJ policy and “the rule of law.” Then end the week with the Friday-night bad-news dump: the grudging removal of DOJ and FBI redactions from a House Intelligence Committee report on Russia’s election meddling.
Now that we can see what they wanted to conceal, it is clear, yet again, that the Justice Department and the FBI cannot be trusted to decide what the public gets to learn about their decision-making. (continued here)
If our highest officials cannot expect justice, then who among us can expect justice?
If we want to live under the rule of law instead the caprices of tyrants, then we each must participate honorably in the governing of our nation. Because a republic cannot run on autopilot, we each must do our best to choose good people to lead us. So please do your homework and then vote on June 12th.
