Who is David Brat? Meet
the Economics Professor
Who Defeated Eric Cantor

Wall Street Journal, by Reid J. Epstein

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 6/10/2014 9:32:43 PM

College professor David Brat knocked off House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) Tuesday in the biggest congressional upset in years. Mr. Brat ran an underfunded campaign based in part on Mr. Cantor’s supposed support for comprehensive immigration reform, when Mr. Cantor has for months been seen by immigration reform advocates as the key roadblock to House legislation. Mr. Brat was so unknown that his Wikipedia entry was only two sentences before Tuesday night. Mr. Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., had support from radio host Laura Ingraham, who hosted a rally with him in a

Politicians need to open their ears. Eric Cantor was tone deaf.

This may be a victory for the Tea Party types. Alternatively, it may be a victory for Democrats whose cross-over voters in an open primary have selected a candidate presumed easier to defeat...

The GOP is dull, disappointing and dormant. Unsustainable with Obama as President.

The GOP needs to look inward. They are the problem. The Tea Party is just normal folks.

Cantor was arrogant.
His wife´s business connections troubling.
House needs to exercise the Power of the Purse and stop funding illegals, Obamacare, IRS, EPA and it´s climate change fraud, eugenics aka Planned Parenthood and Michelle´s Vacations!
Bergdahl Swap is the Straw.a traitor for five Talibans or as they would have been known during WW II Nazis.
The Islamists and Nazis are still united- time to expose them - Huma Abedins new haircut doesn´t change her role as terrorist Muslim Brotherhood agent and Hilary confident.
Sent Brat money early on - time for Constitutional change.

Eric Cantor is not from Northern VA. His district is a little more conservative. His mistake was not making up his mind, whether her supported amnesty or not. I hope the Dems didn´t make this happen. I hope Boehner´s right hand man is replaced with a conservative.

Brat is most impressive when you take the time to hear him. Laura was "all in" for him: congratulations, Laura - you made a difference.

"Mr. Brat appeared more interested in campaigning to make a point than in winning."

Therein lies the point, Mr. Epstein. God, country and principle first; party and winning the next election after that.

Of course, Wall Street and corporate types who live quarter to quarter don´t understand that. Thus the divide between Wall Street and Main Street.

Don´t worry #5, the GOP establishment defenders have assured us repeatedly that they will support the GOP nominee, any nominee, over a Dem. The GOP establishment will turn out in droves to support Brat.

They will tell you themselves as soon as they show up on one of these threads, right?

To me this is an indication of who is motivated to vote, no matter what, in November.

The Obama crowd is way too lazy to drag their sorry butts to the polls (they´ve gotten whatever loot they´re going to get), and way too stupid to know how much it matters. Thank God.

I will be turning fifty in exactly two hours. I´d given up hope, but now have some. What a gift.

FTA: Mr. Brat appeared more interested in campaigning to make a point than in winning. The Washington Post reported last month that he no-showed meetings with key conservative activists in the capital. His excuse: He had final exams to grade.

As one who has to grade final exams for college courses, they HAVE to be graded, and the grades in at a certain time. THAT is a drop-dead job requirement. That makes me respect the guy even more, although Epstein meant it to be a slur.

Any Democrat who claims this was all an operation chaos ploy is blowing smoke. Cook has the district rated R+10, which pretty much means the Republican will win. It´s not the place to attempt such a trick.

This was a perfect storm for Brat. He had an incumbent first elected as a conservative who had slowly lost touch with the district as he rose in leadership. Then the breaking news right before the election was of horror stories of chaos on the Mexican border. finally, the fact so much of Cantor´s money was coming from outside the district meant the spending gap actually worked in Brat´s favor as it made Cantor look like a sell out.

The lesson is that immigration is now a topic that can´t be ignored, swept aside and spun by the open borders radicals. Regardless of whether you find the topic distasteful, immigration must now be addressed, and not in the form of yet another amnesty.

I feel better tonight than I have felt in many years. Suffering through the Clinton years, and all of the big Democrat wins election after election. Suffering through McCain, Romney, Dole And the ongoing rolling over of Republican leadership to the Dimwits. Savoring the 2010 Tea Party sweep only to see the power of the win destroyed by the IRS massive voter suppression and the massive election theft and the associsted anger fear and disbelief at the direction this country is going. Now I have real hope we can turn this crap around. As Reagan had a plaque in the Oval Office that said "It can be done.", and it will. Thank you Virginia!

Yo..yo..Don´t be celebrating just yet. Cantor lost because the northern part of his district is over run with illegals and the voters have had it with amnesty talk. Unless you live in No. Va. You have no ideal that the place has been turned into a third world country. Many schools have upward of 70% Hispanic students who don´t speak English at home and who have caused the schools to lose their accreditation. You can´t know how angry the voters are unless you see it for yourself.

Wow!! Just. WOW!!! So many GREAT Posts!! I have been fervently praying for God to help us, help us save our nation. But now is not the time to stop praying and acting to make it so.

I am SO PROUD of my fellow Virginians! I ran a ross the river from the sink hole of MD at the tender age of 18 and have never looked back. Unfortunately, like the plague that they are, the Libs have invaded Northern VA and like a plague, they ruin everything in their path and are turning NoVA into NY Light. I hope to move deeper into the state where sane people live soonest.

A great birthday present for #12 and an early birthday present for me!! But the fight has only just begun... bewarof the lib´s wolfs in sheeps clothing!! Not just here.

One last thing, the "folks" in DC are so insulated that they do not have to deal with the illegals in any meaningful wzy. I have been accosted in the grocery store, harassed in almost every place of business, had to read of an acquaintance being killed by a drunken illegal being killed at a stop light (the illegal had 3 DUIs alrezdy), a Nun killed by another habitual DUI offender, the list goes on and on. I fear for my elderly relatives with these people running the streets. They have no idea what THE PEOPLE are dealing with already and they want to let in more???

Now it will be interesting to hear if Paul Ryan changes his tune on immigration. He may still have national aspirations. Cantor´s loss is proof that a great many Americans don´t appreciate their country being given away to low IQ Third Worlders.
As for Cantor, it´s still mind boggling that so many Establishment Republicans are willing to follow Democrats´ advice on how to "save their Party" by creating 40 million new Free Stuff Voters! Was Cantor asleep when once-soaring Rubio went from hero to goat within milliseconds after his own Amnesty hari-kari?
Anyway, I digress.

This primary win of Mr. Brat´s gives me hope and it is a joyous feeling. I know and recognize the possibility that the Democrats crossed over to vote for him thinking that he would be easier to defeat. However, I believe that is going to backfire big time for them. Not only is Mr. Brat an excellent candidate, he has now been introduced on the national stage and looks to be the real deal. Despite what the establishment and Democrats want you to believe, the American people are not stupid. They have figured it out and know that politicians in Washington DC do not have their best interests at heart. It appears that they have decided to do something about it. I hope and pray that this is the beginning of the biggest tidal wave of change this country has ever experienced. God bless all you Virginians who made this win possible! You just may have started a revolution of real meaningful restoration! Let us pause to do the happy dance and then get to work. There is a country to reclaim!

Not sure if the reference to the old Buffalo Springfield tune is wholly appropriate, but For What It´s Worth...

I think there´s something much larger than just immigration ´happening here´. With the exception of voting the useless dem slug Mark Warner into the Senate, Cantor´s soon-to-be former district is heavy GOP according to Ballotpedia. So I doubt dems had much if anything to do with Brat´s victory.

Brat talked with Hannity last night for about 15 minutes. He sounded nothing like the bomb-throwing right-wing anarchist dem idiots like Wasserman-Shultz will try to define him as. He came across as thoughtful and focused on the principles that GOP elders dust off for campaigns. I have to conclude that his messaging resonated with voters who are sick and tired of establishment BS on both sides of the aisle.

Happy birthday 12. For my birthday, I want Reince Preibus´ scalp on my lodge pole.

The house has been ignoring one Obama scandal after another as he pushes his socialist agenda and tries to help the Muslim Brotherhood. They don´t even bother themselves to make public complaints anymore. They think they just have to lay low, continue doing things they want to do but their base doesn´t want them to do and Obama will screw up so badly that they´ll probably win anyway. Maybe this will knock them out of their complacency. And maybe their base, from here on to be known as the Tea Party, will take things into their own hands and we will get some congressmen that actually behave like representatives that respect and defend the constitution and oppose the conversion of the US from a democratic republic into socialist autocracy.

I think Brat would do well to leave the constant references to God out of his upcoming speeches, and he HAS been referencing a lot-------you would be shocked to know how many decent people hear this and immediately put the candidate down as a right fringe looney who will take away their reproductive rights etc., even when it is not vaguely true. One can still believe without the constant referencing and one of the reasons we have a pro Obamacare, smooth talking Jim Himes here in Fairfield County Ct. is that the Republican (up again no less) stopped talking about jobs and the economy and focused on birth control---apparently because that is what his wife´s bridge club told him to do! Himes is Obama light, and this is a largely Republican county, but even those of us who are God fearing were turned off.

I hope the rest to the GOP gets to message-NO AMNESTY for illegals in this country. Kick all their butts out and develop a rational program to let temp workers come into country!! Track them and later send their happy *ss back home.

To those who think Cantor lost because of crossover votes from the Dems.. forget it. There was no one who thought he had a chance, why would they bother??

As I watched the pundits last night on FNC, I was amazed at those usual right leaning men sitting there with sourpuss faces. They are all so insulated in DC and NY, they dont have any idea what this country is turning into! The people are fed up, and last night is showing them that it is possible to change it now, one candidate at a time!

I think poster #5 has a really valid point: I agree that Cantor lost touch and became arrogant, but also know that this was an open election and plenty of Dems undoubtedly voted for Brat, feeling he was the weaker candidate. Brat is solid on the constitution, on jobs and the economy and on the mess that is immigration and I hope he sticks strongly to these issues and leaves the social agenda largely alone-----there are too many uninformed young women out there who would be strongly motivated to come out to vote if they thought that the MAIN agenda was social and not digging us out of this horrible economic mess.

On local radio, WMAL, this morning, they said that Boehner sent a note of condolence to Cantor and his family as if someone had died. Let´s hope the election of David Brat will be the death knell of establishment Republicans who care more about their crony lobbyists then their constituents and the Constitution.

I just wish more people would vote.

My spirits soared when I heard the news! Can there be a glimmer of hope for our once great Nation? So many great posts this morning! Sort of sad, though, to see so much hope generated by such a small event. I, for one, am hoping it´s not such a small event. Has the leader we so desperately need finally stepped forward? He seems like the real deal but only time will tell.

You can bet the farm that the DC Establishment is sharpening the long knives and that they will attempt to destroy this man at any cost just like they did Sarah Palin. It´s going to be an interesting few months.

Someone over at Tea Party headquarters should copy that picture of those respectful prospective citizens shown on Drudge today.

When Boehner starts promoting Immigration again as he will, put that picture on your campaign material.

I like the fact that Cantor had to spend 5 million on a primary race just to learn a hard lesson. Even a dummy like me could have told him embracing a disaster like immigration is losing stance with tired Americans.
Maybe Cantor and others like him should sit down and sip their tea and get a grip.

A win for God and the little people...and morality.

A loss for Wall Street (the Journal as well as the Hedge Fund managers and other "zero value added" fat cats.)

A message to Cruz, Lee, et al.: help is on the way.

A warning to elitist politicians: "Can you hear us now?!"

Note to Laura: We loved you before; this is why.

Note to Eric Cantor: If you and the Republican establishment do not immediately close ranks behind David Brat, you will do IRREPARABLE harm to your party. The people have spoken, Listen to them...for once.

Last night on Hannity, Brat emphasized that he is a Republican - the kind that believes in the original principles of the Constitution. It was like music to the ears. Maybe the Northeast Republicans can get back to their roots and remember why the Republican Party came about. Somewhere in the last fifty years they lost their way and became the opposite of what they started out to be - can anyone say Rockefeller Republicans?

I have to admit with the elections of Mark Warner, Jim Webb and Tim Kaine to the Senate and that dirtbag Terry McCuliffe to the governorship I lost all hope for Virginia. Even though I no longer live there since 2009 I have some hope left with this latest victory. Eric Cantor lost because he lost touch with his constiuents by becoming a DC RINO. He so wanted the big Speaker office that he lost sight of the reason why he was elected in the first place. Let this be a lesson to Congress critters like Rubio and Ryan. Jump on the amnesty bandwagon at your own peril.

The only negative mentioned against Brat was that he didn´t act like a politician. Good for him! That´s a plus in my book.

The Republicans have sat on their fat chairs for the last six years and watched Obama and his mob roll all over the country. It´s time they started paying the price. When your allies start to look like your enemy, it´s time to replace them. Their current focus on immigration reform and "fixing" obamacare proves that they are steadily putting their own fortunes and careers before the needs of the American people. Out with them all.

But, after the establishment republican candidates all won their primaries a few days ago, all the stories I saw were about the demise of the Tea Party. Has there been a reincarnation? Sounds like it to me.

And earlier, I read an article that stated that the win over Cantor just could cost Boehner his Speaker job. They were so inseparable that to loose Cantor is a terrible blow to Boehner that there will be others seeking his job next year.

There are MSM rats diving in dumpsters this very moment seeking anything they can use to smear this man. But they don´t seem to have found anything they could use against Cruz, so let´s hope Brat is cut of the same cloth.

Also, #11 would probably consider me a GOP "establishment defender" because I went out and voted for Romney instead of staying home. But I would vote for Brat in a heartbeat. Every race is different in critical ways. This one seems a sterling example of an opportunity to get rid of a bad Republican, bring in a good, perhaps great one, and NOT add to the DimRat side. Truly a win-win. And not a day for division on our side, or Eeyores who say "It won´t matter, we are all doomed anyway." Be happy!

In the long run it will mean nothing.
Remember the Republican Revolution of 1994?
Gingrich wanted term limits but was shouted down. Without term limits today´s flavor or the month man/women of the people get to Washington all ready to do the people´s work, but then over time they start liking it and building their little empire and fortunes. Term limits and a balanced budget amendment would go along way to setting up a structure to limit corruption. When was the last time Congress actually passed a budget?

In the foyer of the Central Intelligence Agency’s headquarters, there is a marble wall covered in stars. They are carved divots that represent those who have fallen in the service of the CIA. Below them, jutting out from the polished rock, is a black book entombed in a case of glass and steel. The book is a guide to the stars, giving the names of some of those who died and withholding the names of others. On the pages of the CIA’s Book of Honor are 107 hand-drawn stars organized by the years those officers died. For 2007, there is

SO FAR Hamas’s military campaign against Israel has been a dismal failure. Thanks in part to Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, some 1,200 rockets fired at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities have caused only one Israeli death and a few other casualties. Attempted commando attacks via the sea and a tunnel were stopped short, and a drone that ventured into Israel was quickly shot down. Yet Hamas on Tuesday rejected an Egyptian cease-fire proposal that was supported by Western governments and the Arab League and had been accepted by Israel. Why would Hamas insist on continuing the fight when

Sarah Palin is right about

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action. Of course this won’t happen, for the obvious reason that this tactic didn’t go so well for Republicans last time. Hence House Speaker John Boehner’s curt dismissal of Palin’s call for impeachment: “I disagree.” Boehner’s alternative — a lawsuit — offers the political benefits of draining impeachment fever from the more rabid Republican precincts while rallying the base

Israel’s pledge to intensify its military operation in the Gaza Strip could hasten the moment when the Obama administration will be forced to decide whether to use its leverage to corral its closest ally in the Middle East. Israeli officials, in a series of television interviews, statements and social-media venues, said Tuesday that Hamas’s rejection of a cease-fire offer validated the force it has used over eight days of conflict and made legitimate their argument for a wider military effort. The Obama administration appeared to accept that rationale, blaming the armed Islamist movement in Gaza for missing an opportunity to

The Pew Research Center, a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts, has the means to sample opinion with unique frequency and on a major scale. It has used its funds to track Muslim attitudes toward Islamism in general, toward specific terrorist groups in particular, and also toward suicide bombing over the past decade. The most recent study, “Concerns about Islamic Extremism on the Rise in Middle East,” released on July 1, conducted among 14,244 respondents in 14 countries between April 10 and May 25, 2014, holds much interest.

President Obama told guests at the White House’s annual Iftar dinner tonight that “further escalation” in the Middle East “benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and the Palestinian people.” Faced with criticism from some Arab and Muslim activists who think he has been too friendly toward the Israeli side, Obama addressed the conflict near the end of his comments, which largely honored “the traditions of one of the world’s great faiths.” “For all of us, whatever our faiths, Ramadan is a reminder of just how much we share.

Illegal immigrants in D.C. fail

Four out of five illegal immigrants seeking driver’s licenses under a new D.C. law have failed a written knowledge test — a rocky start to a program that in its first two months has issued 268 licenses, according to city officials. The failure rate of 80 percent compares with a 58 percent failure rate for people seeking traditional driver’s licenses, the Department of Motor Vehicles told a D.C. Council committee. In addition, a check of the DMV website this week shows a massive backlog in appointments required to apply for the District’s “limited-purpose license.” The first available date for an

President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

Up above, the vapor trail of a rocket fired from Gaza, just 10 miles down the coast, ripped the clear blue sky. And then, a boom: The rocket had been shot down. The kids jumped back in the seaside pool, and their mother returned to her tanning. Through it all, the lifeguard had barely stirred. Such is the dichotomous reality this week

Ponder for a minute what AFSCME has done. The union has severed ties with the United Negro College Fund because the Koch brothers contributed $25 million to the fund. Or rather, because the fund accepted the contribution. The money will pay for 3,000 scholarships and other needs. To read about this episode, go here. The hatred whipped up against the Koch brothers has become nearly frightening, I think. It is undemocratic, unsettling, intolerant.

Maybe it is time for a shake-up. President Obama’s second-term staffing was always going to be a risk. He abandoned his first term’s team of rivals for a closer-knit team of loyalists. The bet was that he was assured enough in the job to no longer need the in-house challenge — and that smooth-running consensus would compensate for the loss. The bet isn’t paying off. Overseas and at home, the administration seems besieged and befuddled. Obama is in danger of cementing an image of haplessness that would be hard to undo.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
