    A fifth Republican is now running in the June primary for a chance to challenge Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia in November. News outlets reported Tuesday that Bert Mizusawa has entered the Republican primary and is expected to plan an announcement this week. He is a retired major general in the U.S. Army Reserve and foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Mizusawa filed a statement of candidacy Friday. His campaign manager, Mike Wade, tells The Washington Post that frustration over the recent three-day government shutdown helped motivate Mizusawa to enter the race. Mizusawa...

    Bishop E.W. Jackson, who heads Exodus Faith Ministries in Virginia and is a former U.S. Senate candidate for Virginia, said that liberals constatntly seek to mock Christians who view natural disasters as divine punishments and they do this, along with groups like the KKK and the LGBT community because they all share a "virulent hatred of true Christianity." “What is the similarity between the Ku Klux Klan and the left?" said Bishop Jackson on his Sept. 12 radio show The Awakening. " And I’ll include the LGBT community in this. What do they have in common? What do the...

    Conservative evangelical bishop E.W. Jackson says that his "attitude" about Donald Trump changed as a result of Tuesday's meeting between Trump and hundreds of America's top evangelical leaders in New York City. Jackson, who is the founder of the conservative nonprofit S.T.A.N.D., said in a conference call during the meeting that he can now back the presumptive Republican nominee instead of just preferring him over presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "What I am hoping we will see is the evangelical community unify around Donald Trump because we just don't have any choice," Jackson said. "I hope that there will be...

    E.W. Jackson, the Republican Party of Virginia's 2013 nominee for lieutenant governor, has endorsed Ted Cruz for president. Jackson joins Ken Cuccinelli, the 2013 GOP nominee for governor, in backing the Texas senator. Cuccinelli, Virginia's former attorney general, endorsed Cruz during the Texas senator's Dec. 18 rally in Hanover County. "Senator Cruz knows that 'central planning' by Washington elites will never match the ingenuity and effectiveness of free-market capitalism working hand-in-hand with people of faith to restore cultural values and bring prosperity to the most needy people in our country," Jackson said in a statement....

  • Black Pastors Say Black Lives Matter Is 'Demonic,' 'Shameful' and 'Tragic'

    12/12/2015 8:15:13 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 23 replies ^ | Samuel Smith
    A group of black pastors asserted Wednesday that in order to change the impoverished, crime-stricken cultures in America's inner cities, more emphasis needs to be placed on responsibility, education and entrepreneurship instead of blaming the police for problems facing troubled African-Americans. Bishop E.W. Jackson from The Called Church in Chesapeake, Virginia, and other black ministers from the organization STAND (Staying True to America's National Destiny) gathered at the National Press Club to announce the launch of Project Awakening, a private-sector, church-centered, comprehensive plan for the recovery of America's inner cities that focuses on teaching children they have options and responsibilities...

    Earlier today EW Jackson hosted a conference call with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The open call was part of a weekly feature for Jackson and his organization STAND.Cruz began with opening remarks on his position on religious freedom and how he'll push back against the PC police whenever they try to admonish someone for being religious. Cruz then touched on his continued fight to defend traditional marriage. His opening was short and narrowly focused as he seemed genuinely more interested in taking questions than filling the time up with prepared talking points, which caught me as unexpected and a...

    Virginia Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Ralph Northam is drawing criticism after appearing to refuse to shake the hand of Republican opponent E.W. Jackson on Thursday. “I was happy to have an opportunity last night to sit with my opponent and Les Smith at NewsChannel 3 to discuss the issues in this race,” Jackson said in an email to supporters Friday. “But I was disappointed when, after he focused so much on what divides us, Ralph Northam refused to even shake my hand.” After the debate concluded on WTKR, Jackson can be seen extending his hand to Northram. The Democratic...

Apparently, Democrat candidate for Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam missed that memo. Not to worry, GOP LG candidate E.W. Jackson extended his hand to Northam in such a gesture, so you would expect it to be reciprocated. Nothing. So, Jackson...

    In a fiery speech to social conservatives Friday, Virginia lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson blasted the media for questioning his positions on social issues. Jackson, a bishop, said that when he first got into the race he was asked by reporters about controversial statements he has made concerning Planned Parenthood (which he once compared to the Ku Klux Klan) and gay marriage. “Well, I want to go on record here,” Jackson said, speaking at the Values Voter Summit. “I didn’t apologize then, I don’t apologize now and I will never apologize for standing up for the truth.”

It is not the first time Jackson has weighed in with controversial comments on questions of faith and social issues. He has also said that gay people’s “minds are perverted.

    He called Obama, along with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, "people who are telling black kids what they can't do." "The one thing I at least hoped for from the president — and I didn't have much hope for him — was that he'd bring us together," Jackson said. "But he has divided us." Although he's only the second African-American to seek the lieutenant governor's office and the fourth to run for any of the state's three top offices in modern times, Jackson would reject that identification. "I don't see myself as African-American, I'm an American," he said to cheers...

    The religious bigots at the Virginian Pilot have run editorials, news stories and carefully selected letters to the editors to smear E.W. Jackson, a Black minister who won the Republican nomination for Lieutenant governor of Virginia. Why so much hatred for a Black man? The answer is simple religious bigotry combined with the political bête noir of the Left: a Black conservative. Black conservatives are vilified as a matter of course because they represent the runaway slave to the slave masters of the Democrat Party. In the 21st Century they don’t send the dogs out after them anymore; instead they...

National Review’s Betsy Woodruff reports that The Man Who Would Be VA Lt. Gov. says yoga puts you at risk of Satanic possession. … Jackson also doesn’t belive in evolution. Why? Because monkeys can’t talk. Defeat that with your so-called “logic.” …
