    Challenger Bob Good has ousted Rep. Denver Riggleman, R-5th in a rancorous drive-thru convention for the party's nomination. Voting in the all-day convention at a church in Campbell County concluded at 7 p.m., but party officials did not announce the results until after 1 a.m. Fifth District GOP chairman Melvin Adams said 2,537 delegates voted Saturday. Good said he received 58% of the tally. On Twitter Riggleman asserted that "voting irregularities and ballot stuffing has been reported in multiple counties" in the district. He added: "We are evaluating all our options at this time." As for Riggleman's allegations, Good said:...

    Eleven students who attend Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, have come down with coronavirus symptoms after returning to campus. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. decided to reopen the campus to students at the end of spring break despite public health officials warning him not to do so. The Democratic governor of Virginia Ralph Northam had previously banned gatherings of more than 100 people in the state to which Liberty said it would transition most classes to online.

    LYNCHBURG, Va (WDBJ7)-- Liberty University released a statement after Governor Ralph Northam urged the university to uphold rules about social-distancing and public gatherings. During the Governor’s address he quoted scripture saying “It is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” He then encouraged the university to provide clear and consistent guidance and respecting its duty to its students, staff, the Lynchburg community and the commonwealth. Liberty responded saying it has been tirelessly working to protect its students the last couple of weeks. “We really think it's un-Christian to turn students away and push any problems...

    This is an awesome interview with Snerdley, from October 2019. I only clicked the link to put a face with a name I have heard for years and I ended up watching the whole video... I always liked him because of his role as the Official Obama Criticizer, but this gives a whole new perspective on James Golden, the man, makes me wonder why Rush never just has him fill in for him??

    In response to anti-Second Amendment measures, that are increasingly likely to be passed by the democrat led Legislature in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell is “pretty sure” he will call for civil disobedience if said legislation is passed and signed by the governor. Mr. Falwell has served as President of Liberty University since 2007, succeeding to the Presidency after the passing of his father, Jerry Falwell, Sr. President Falwell’s comments are welcome by many in the Christian and Conservative communities and may answer the larger question of when individuals on the political center and right will...

    Donald Trump Jr., under fire for “outing” the alleged Ukraine phone call whistleblower, doubled down on his description of CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella as a Democratic Party operative who cried “like a little child” when his father beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Speaking at Virginia’s Liberty University to promote his new book, Trump mocked reports that he was the first to name the alleged whistleblower, and he said that a simple internet search would show the political leanings of Ciaramella. All you have to do is a little research, and you can see that this is a guy...

    At the end of July, MSNBC’s biggest and dullest conspiracy theorist got some very bad news. After over a year of booming ratings, The Rachel Maddow Show’s viewership had crashed. It had been a long road for Maddow, the former blonde Catholic high school girl who had decided she wanted to be a media personality and ended up with an MSNBC show through the efforts of Keith Olbermann. And after Keith was gone, MSNBC had to settle for a slightly less effeminate version of Olbermann. Maddow had retained the key elements of Olbermann’s personality, the unhinged conspiracy theories, histrionic delivery,...

    As Americans, we speak our minds. It’s the quintessential American quality. Freedom of expression is so foundational to our liberty that it is enshrined in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. We must never take our freedom of speech for granted. Today, 243 years after our nation’s founding, educational institutions, originally created to foster and promote freedom of thought and freedom of conscience, are now actively suppressing first freedoms in the name of political correctness. In a sudden Orwellian twist, students across the country are now discovering that it’s not only acceptable, but morally praiseworthy to use intimidation,...

    A couple years ago one of the most famous transgender women in the world, Caitlyn Jenner, shocked many observers when she spoke about voting for Donald Trump and identifying as a Republican. Turns out, that might not have been as far-fetched as it first seemed, even if she has since revoked her support of Trump. A recently published large-scale study on LGBTQ political identities has produced some surprising results, finding transgender men and women tend to be “significantly less liberal” than cisgender men, straight men, and others in the LGBTQ community. A trans man is someone who was born female...

    This spring, a group of Christian liberals (yes, apparently “Christian liberal” is a “thing,” not an oxymoron) plans to visit Lynchburg, Virginia, the home of conservative Liberty University, and protest what they consider the “toxic evangelicalism” coming from leaders like Liberty’s president Jerry Falwell and others like him who happen to support President Trump. The “Red Letter Revival” was announced last week by Christian author and social justice warrior Shane Claiborne via Twitter, and is set to take place April 6-7. According to his website bio, Claiborne “heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to...

    A group of alumni from one of the country's most influential evangelical Christian universities is condemning their school's president for his continued alignment with President Trump. A small but growing number of Liberty University graduates are preparing to return diplomas to their school. The graduates are protesting university President Jerry Falwell Jr.'s ongoing support for Trump. They began organizing after Trump's divisive remarks about the deadly white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Va. Chris Gaumer, a former Student Government Association president and 2006 graduate, said it was a simple decision. "I'm sending my diploma back because the president of the United...

    Extraordinary: Presidents don't make speeches like the one above. Or I should say, they didn't If you haven’t seen this, do yourself a favor and take the time to watch it. It’s an extraordinary address for a president to give precisely because it cuts to the heart of something that’s been going on in Washington for far too long: The political class does worship government as if it were a god. They obsess over it. They fight over what it should be like. They demand that everyone pay it as much money as possible. And of course, they fight for...

"When I'm in a foxhole, the guy I want beside me shooting, I don't care if he's one of us or not. If he's a Christian, that's great...

    This is my commentary based on video. Salient points begin at 2:30 Jerry Falwell, Jr. just did the most amazing endorsement of Trump. A few points he made, but watch video for actual: 1. His dad got a lot of flack for endorsing a divorced Hollywood actor, Ronald Reagan. 2. He discussed how Liberty U. was failing financially years ago and they hired the best lawyers, accountants, etc....not based on their faith, but based on their expertise. They turned Liberty U. around and he said the US is very much like Liberty U., and Trump has a track record of...
