• COMPLETE Virginia National Delegates To The GOP Convention

  • MEMO: The Coming DPVA Storm

    To: Interested Parties
    From: John Findlay, Executive Director
    Date: June 17, 2016 
    Re: The Coming DPVA Storm 
    There’s another storm coming, but only if you’re a liberal. Virginia Democrats are coming to town on Saturday to hash out their differences in one of the final preliminary bouts before the Fracas in Philly.

    Rank and file Democrats have a lot to be upset about. Not only have their party insiders chosen to ignore the will of the voters and deny Sen. Bernie Sanders the 5 super delegates he’s due in a proportional system, but we’ve also found out that the Democratic National Committee was attempting to stack the deck for Hillary Clinton from day one.

    DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz did everything in her power to keep Democrats from having a real choice. She knows, just like every other political observer, that the base of the Democrat party is far more in line with Socialist Bernie Sanders than Hillary Clinton. Add in the fact that Hillary was also running in the all important FBI primary thanks to her secret server, and Clinton needed all the help she could get.

    In Virginia, Terry McAuliffe has done everything possible to rig the game for his good friend Hillary, including hiding his fundraising and campaign schedule on her behalf from the press.

    Democratic conventions have a history of discord in Virginia. In 2012, then-Chairman Brian Moran had the stage disassembled around him as delegates jeered. Moran and company were attempting to elect their own preferred candidates, but faced an internal rebellion. Meanwhile, the facilities crew couldn’t wait on Democrats to finish their fighting, and Chairman Moran lost his stage one piece at a time as the cameras rolled.

    All around the country, Democrats are voting to bind their super delegates to the results of the popular vote. If Terry McAuliffe and Hillary Clinton refuse to let that vote happen in Virginia, then there will be no Democratic Party of Virginia any more. Instead, there will only be a local branch of Clinton, Inc.

    We also expect them to anoint Lt. Governor Ralph Northam as their candidate for governor. In a way, we feel sorry for LG Northam. Not only will he have to defend his own anti-job, anti-family, anti-Second Amendment record, but he’ll also have to run away from Terry McAuliffe ham-fisted attempt to stack the deck for Hillary Clinton, as well as his long list of temper-tantrum vetoes.

    Yes, we’re expecting quite a fight in Richmond on Saturday. It’s the final run up to the Fracas in Philly, as the Clinton Machine does its best to finally extinguish The Bern. Will the true socialist face of Virginia Democrats shine through, or will the Clinton corporate machine crush all dissent?

    Pop some popcorn, folks. It’s gonna be fun.
  • Chairman Whitbeck: Dems Must Denounce McAuliffe Rights Restoration Incompetence

    Hillary Clinton is on the air in Virginia with an ad buy focused on children. But thanks to massive incompetence by her top surrogate in the state, at least 132 sexual predators too dangerous to be released have had their rights to vote, serve on juries, and hold public office restored.

    The Washington Post reports:

    “Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s sweeping order to restore voting rights to ex-felons may have had another unintended consequence: giving the right to vote to at least 132 sex offenders who have finished their sentences but remain locked up because they have been deemed too dangerous to release.”

    “In Virginia, such individuals can be sent through a civil court proceeding to the Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation in Nottoway County, southwest of Richmond.

    Nottoway Commonwealth’s Attorney Terry J. Royall said Wednesday that 176 of the center’s 370 residents have regained the right to vote, run for public office and serve on a jury.”

    “She said she was told by the facility director that there are 176 residents who ‘meet the governor’s criteria for restoration …Today his staff ran those 176 names through the database and 132 came up as having actually been restored.’

    Where is Hillary Clinton on this issue? Squarely behind her good friend Terry McAuliffe:

    HRC Tweet

    Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Every day it becomes more clear that Terry McAuliffe did little to no due diligence before he issued his blanket rights restoration order. Despite his assurances that those with their rights restored were nonviolent offenders who had served their time, we later learned that many still in jail had their rights restored. Now we learn that the worst of the worst sexual predators were included on the list. There’s no excuse for this. Hillary Clinton, Ralph Northam, Mark Herring, LuAnn Bennett, Jane Dittmar and every other Democrat should repudiate Terry McAuliffe’s incompetence.”

    “Every day that passes before they denounce this ham-handed grab for votes is more proof that the care more about getting votes than justice and public safety.”

  • The Real Clinton National Security Record: Failure

    — Secret servers, the Iran nuclear deal, and Libya are all her ‘accomplishments’  —

    Del. Scott Lingamfelter, R-Woodbridge, a retired U.S. Army Colonel, gave the following statement:

    “It would be impossible for Democrats to find a nominee less qualified to discuss the subject of national security than Hillary Clinton. For years, she left classified information open to hackers and foreign intelligence services simply to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests. Her foundation took millions from repressive regimes like Saudi Arabia while giving lip service to human rights. From the Iran nuclear deal to the disaster in Libya, Hillary Clinton’s record is one of failure, deception, and hypocrisy. When it comes to national security, Hillary Clinton is a continuing disaster who has no place anywhere near the White House.”

    State Sen. Bryce Reeves, R-Spotsylvania, a retired Army Ranger, gave the following statement:

    “Hillary Clinton’s record on national security is awful, to put it mildly. Thanks to Hillary Clinton, Iran is closer than ever to having nuclear weapons, jihadists are spreading across Libya, and foreign intelligence services from Beijing to Moscow likely know our most sensitive intelligence secrets. Virginians aren’t going to support someone who used her position as our top diplomat to funnel money into her private slush fund foundation. That’s why they’re going to elect Republicans up and down the ballot in November.”

    “Virginians know better than to listen to Clinton, Inc.”

  • Del. Lingamfelter: Hillary Clinton is “A Disaster For National Security”

    Del. Scott Lingamfelter, R-Woodbridge, a retired U.S. Army Colonel and Chairman of the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety, issued the following statement:

    “Government has no more important function that ensuring the security of our nation from attack. Hillary Clinton has done more to damage that security than any official in living memory. Any of my former comrades in arms who handled secure information with such blatant disregard for basic security procedures, as Secretary Clinton did with her secret server, would likely already be in prison. She advocated for the Iran deal which the Obama administration has admitted will put more money into the hands of terrorists. Libya is now a jihadist wasteland thanks to her bad decisions. Hillary Clinton has been a disaster for national security. I shudder to think what she would do as Commander-in-Chief.”  
  • Chairman Whitbeck: Voter Lawsuit Key to Stopping McAuliffe Executive Overreach

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck offered the following statement following today’s announcement:

    “I applaud the suit filed by Speaker Howell, Majority Leader Norment and other voters today. Terry McAuliffe has proven time and time again that he is willing to abuse the powers of his office in his effort to elect Hillary Clinton.  No governor, regardless of party, has the power to re-write Virginia’s laws unilaterally.”

    “We’ve already seen unintended consequences from this poorly-thought out effort. Defense attorneys are already attempting to stack juries with felons. Violent criminals now have a much easier time getting access to firearms. I’m optimistic that the courts will act quickly to overturn this blatantly unconstitutional attack on the rule of law.”

  • Chairman Whitbeck: Kaine’s VP Audition Unbecoming a Virginia Senator

    After being left at the altar by President Obama in 2008, Tim Kaine has decided to be more proactive in 2016. Over the past two days, he has sharply criticized Senate Republicans’ decision to let the American people have their say at the ballot box before filling the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck offered the following statement:

    “Tim Kaine’s attacks are worse than nonsensical. They’re a blatant attempt to prove to Hillary Clinton that’s he’s ‘tough’ enough to take on our Republican ticket this year. His preferred method? Implying that Republicans oppose President Obama’s decision to violate precedent and appoint a new Supreme Court Justice in the midst of an election is based on race.”

    “Impugning the motives of Republicans in the most disgusting way possible might make him a more attractive Clinton attack dog, but it’s unbecoming of a Senator from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Senate Republicans are simply honoring the Biden Rule, laid out by the sitting Vice President when he was a Senator. Yet Senator Kaine is happy to make baseless charges in hopes of impressing a scandal-plagued candidate who has lost 21 elections to a socialist from Vermont.”

    “Virginians expect better from their U.S. Senators, regardless of their aspirations for higher office. Tim Kaine should be ashamed of himself.”

  • Statement from RPV Chairman John Whitbeck on Mrs. Clinton Visiting Virginia Today

    With the Democratic Primary going down to the wire – Governor McAuliffe’s number one priority, Hillary Clinton, is in the Commonwealth trying to connect with voters. Despite the spin and show put on by her campaign, Mrs. Clinton has stated she’ll continued the failed policies of the Obama Administration while failing to address the real concerns of Virginians. The Obama/Clinton/McAuliffe agenda is a disaster for Virginia and the voters know it.

    We need to fix our healthcare system, streamline our taxation system and  expand jobs and opportunity in the Commonwealth, not put coal workers out of business like Mrs. Clinton has bragged before. John Whitbeck, RPV Chairman
