    Congrats Virginia on Defeating Bloomberg

    As reported at Breitbart this morning:

    Quote Originally Posted by Breitbart article

    Virginia Republicans look set to hold onto their Senate majority in the Old Dominion, amid aggressive campaigning by Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

    It is a big defeat for McAuliffe, a close ally for Hillary Clinton, and a big defeat for New York billionaire Mike Bloomberg, who donated heavily to Democrats in the hope of winning the Virginia electoral fights on a promise of more gun-control.

    Republicans beat back two serious challengers Tuesday, holding onto seats in the suburbs of Richmond and the Hampton Roads area.

    In another hotly contested race, Republican Hal Parrish holds a lead over Democrat Jerry McPike. If Parrish holds onto his lead, it would represent a Republican gain, as the two are battling to replace a retiring Democrat.

    ...
    Not only are the results good to hear, but I love seeing results reported in this manner. "A defeat for gun control efforts...." Nicely done.

    "McAuliffe fails to win ...."?????????????

    Last I check it was Mikey Bloomberg who dropped a total of slightly more than $2.2 on the Virginia Senate races.

    And there was no better sound than his dollars being flushed down the crapper.

    stay safe.

    A loud sigh of relief

    This got close to being a disaster. Just remember that Bloomie has enough money to clog the sewer pipes. Local reports suggest it was a backlash against outside money that tipped it. We will probably never know for sure. The fight continues because our enemies will NEVER stop trying to take our rights. Once we pick up the yoke to join the fight we can never stop and never more than briefly relax. They will try again.

    Oh, c'mon. Sugar-daddy Bloomberg is a "grassroots" effort, all by himself. Along with the people he pays to do his bidding, and the paid volunteers, oh, and....

    Great news to hear from you Virginia folks. Keep up the good fight.

    The growing voter base in Powhatan County effectively cancelled out the NOVA antis...and then some.

    Lots of good people in Powhatan - expect we shall hear more from them.

    I think it's safe to say that a focus on gun control is a losing strategy in Virginia. A different emphasis might have led to a different outcome.

    Precisely. And that is the message we want to get out loudly and clearly.

    "Gun Control" is a losing strategy. Whether you are a liberal Democrat or a claimed-conservative Republican, attacking RKBA is a losing strategy.

    Nationwide, Democrats learned this lesson very painfully in 1994 when they lost control of the US House of Reps for the first time in something like 40 years.

    This year, gun grabbers in Virginia and Kentucky are learning that lesson. Even on the heals of media attempts to orchestrate national panic about private gun ownership by dancing in the blood of the victims of rare school mass shootings, and with massive financial backing from Bloomberg, gun control was a losing issue.

    Whatever the populace may think or be manipulated into believing about illegal immigration, socialized medicine, soaking the rich, recreational drugs, or any other issue; whatever party might be generally supportable or opposed on other grounds, attacking guns is a losing message.

    That doesn't mean those hostile or our RKBA won't keep trying, and even winning sometimes. They are not the least bit above lying. Here in Utah, come election season, even the most liberal of Democrats and RINO or Republicans starts every statement on guns with "I'm support the 2nd amendment....but". We have to fight the good fight to avoid such folks turning every minor crime into a felony or DVM with lifetime loss of rights. But the message is loud and clear that (at least for the time being), gun control is a losing issue in Utah politics.

    That same message remains true in other States, in enough States to be true in national politics. Given typical GOP stupidity, I expect that Hillary's open calls for Australian-style gun confiscation here may be the only thing that keeps her out of the White House.

    Bloomberg, McAwful, Hussein Obama, and Hillarygard are primarily victim curators.

    Hilary makes me sick, and I personally shun anyone I know who supports her, or even thinks about it. Here's some good info in this article -

    if you scolded a bad dog that often and that thoroughly, they'd probably mend their behavior. Sadly, Bloomie will be back with more of the same. And we'll have to work hard to spank him once more.
