Thursday News: Trump Foreign Policy Speech #FAIL; Cruz/Fiorina “most loathsome pair in America”; Dick Black Supports Assad

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Thursday, April 28. Also, if you want a really weird start to your day, check out Carly Fiorina “singing” to Ted Cruz’s kids. More evidence that this may be the most bizarre presidential election (on the Republican side, anyway) in U.S. history.

    2013 VA GOP Lt. Gov. Nominee EW Jackson


    From E.W. Jackson

    Dear Fellow Republicans and Presidential Candidates:

    Take it from someone who won a Convention nomination in Virginia for Lt. Governor, unless everyone agrees that we will support the Republican nominee for President, we will lose to the Democrat in November.

    When I ran for Lt. Governor and won an overwhelming victory at the convention, there were Republicans who continually beat the drum against me and my running mates. They said our ticket – Cuccinelli, Jackson and Obenshain – was too extreme. Some even went so far as to support the Democrat ticket. They got their wish. For the last three years Virginia has been governed by Hillary confidante Terry McAuliffe and his left wing cohorts. The state has suffered for it, but if Republicans had been unified, the outcome would have been different.

    It is more than a cliche that Republicans find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. My candidate is Ted Cruz. I publicly endorsed him, contributed to his campaign and even traveled on my own dime to serve as a surrogate for him. He is a brilliant man who I believe would be a better President than any other person in this race. I am going to stick with him to the end. However, for the good of the Party and to enhance its chances of defeating Hillary, it is time to bury the hatchet.

    If Donald Trump wins the nomination, he will have my enthusiastic support. I would urge every candidate and every Republican to do the same. If we don’t have that discipline, we don’t have a party. When I ran statewide in Virginia, there was a total of seven candidates vying for the nomination. Not once did I speak a negative word about any of them. At times, they fought with each other and even shot at me. I did not respond in kind because I realized it would only make it more difficult and perhaps impossible to unify when one of us emerged with the nomination.

    A few nasty types continued to snipe at me and our ticket, but none of the candidates that I defeated had anything negative to say. In fact, most of them joined the campaign trail for me. If that does not happen in this presidential race, the Republican nominee will lose, no matter who he is.

    So this is a plea from a former candidate and winner of a state wide convention, who fell short in the general election largely because the establishment would not follow their own advice by supporting the legitimate nominees of the party.

    Please stop talking about hands and wives and personal character and start talking about the issues. Please pledge to each other that whatever the outcome you will support the nominee. As a Pastor, I ask one more thing–that you would please apologize to each other and start treating each other like human beings and fellow Republicans instead of enemies. It is time to remember Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.

    If Hillary Clinton is elected President, she will double down on Obama’s policies. That will be an unmitigated disaster for our country. And in the end this race is about America, not political egos. It is about our country, our Constitution, our economy and jobs. It is about raising our families in a nation of hope and opportunity, where our children and grandchildren can get a quality education and have meaningful lives and careers. It is about appointing Supreme Court Justices who honor the
    Constitution and the law instead of using the Court as their private tool for social engineering. It is about defeating Islamic terrorism. It is about preserving the Judeo-Christian vision of our Founding Fathers as one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

    The legacy of Barack Obama is horrific. The only way Hillary Clinton will be elected to continue that legacy is if Republicans help her. So far we are doing a pretty good job of that.

    It is time to start making sure that the next President is a Republican instead of focusing on destroying each other. It is time to discard the politics of mutually assured destruction and start assuring victory through unity.

    Please do not allow our country to wake up on November 9, 2016 to the nightmare of a Hillary Clinton presidency.

    For God & Country,

    Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr.
