Former Majority Leader Eric
Cantor Surprises GOP by Stepping
Down for Good of the Party & Country

Independent Journal Review, by Michael Hausam

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/2/2014 6:37:52 PM

According the the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Eric Cantor has announced that he will be stepping down early. On Thursday, he bid farewell to the House in a speech on the floor that also expressed strong concerns over the state of the nation and the world: (Video) After suffering a surprise primary loss to a political newcomer and a relatively-unknown local college professor, Dave Brat, Cantor planned to stay in Congress and assist other Republican candidates in the upcoming election season. He explained the reason for the change of heart in a special guest column: During this time of transition for me and

Regardless of whether you agree with his views, or believe that he became too engrained in Washington, he accepted defeat with rare grace. His decision to leave early so that his successor could begin at once is an act of statesman-like dignity and class. Few others would do the same.

You are correct. He accepted defeat with grace to a point. When reciting his speech election night after the pols closed, he was very angered. Never mentioned Brat´s name and never congratulated him in those few short hours. However, he was far more graceful in defeat than...ummmm..Al Gore in his! No comparison by far. The fact he is stepping down for the party and country makes one wonder what might be next on his plate.

... ultimately benefit the citizens of the district

Is that what he thinks congress is for -- to "benefit" the citizens of the district? I think the ideal should be that he *represents* the citizens of the district and their voice is heard in an effort to benefit the citizens of the country.

This is a huge part of the problem with our federal government and the people who go there. They think their job is to bring home the bacon. And they forget where the bacon comes from. They just want more and more bacon so they can fight over a bigger and bigger trough.

The incentives are all wrong and the system is corrupt beyond repair.

I don´t care what´s next on his plate or how much money he makes. We´re conservatives, we shouldn´t criticize people for perhaps going on to make a lot of money. How about being graceful, just like Cantor, and wishing him well? It´s far better to have Brat in there early - better for the party, Brat and Virginia.

I´m very hopeful for Brat and hope he can deliver the way he speaks - directly, plainly, sensibly. I am disappointed by how Cantor turned out. He is intelligent and I think he is capable and he lost his way - I would have voted for Brat in the primary had I lived there. I have to appreciate Cantor stepping down now.

I don´t understand. He is asking McAuliffe to declare the November election a "special election" which means the winner can take office immediately (after all the Democrat challenges if Brat wins), but it seems his district will still be left without representation from now until November.

This move by Cantor is one of the most selfish and spiteful things I have ever seen! The good of the party and country, my foot!

Let´s deal with selfish first. Cantor can start his lucrative new job (selling his political influence, i.e., prostitution) some six months earlier. He´ll reap thousands of $$ in the process.

Spiteful? Try this:
- His cronies kept most of the Republican 7th District funds out of the hands of Dave Brat´s people.
- With this move, he disrupts Dave Brat´s life.
- Now, instead of Brat being allowed to transition from Academe to (Ugh!) DC at his own pace, Cantor has slammed him into a Nov 4th special election.

Cantor is disgusting! He personifies why we hate DC. As a Christian, I am not allowed to say that I hope he is the first one to contract Ebola when it gets here.

WASHINGTON— Prospective Republican presidential candidates are expected to promote "religious liberty" at home and abroad at a gathering of religious conservatives, rebuking an unpopular President Barack Obama while skirting divisive social issues that have tripped up the GOP. The annual Values Voter Summit opens Friday in Washington with speeches from several potential presidential candidates, including Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. The speaking program features ambitious Republicans with positions on social issues across the spectrum — from the libertarian-leaning Paul, who favors less emphasis on abortion and gay

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement on Thursday that Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning as his group is close to nailing the Department of Justice on Operation Fast and Furious. Judicial Watch just won a key battle in federal court against the administration on the Fast and Furious documents President Barack Obama asserted executive privilege over to hide them from the American people and Congress. Fitton said: It is no coincidence that Holder’s resignation comes on the heels of another court ruling that the Justice Department must finally cough up documents about how Holder’s Justice Department

Chuck Todd, the new moderator for Meet the Press, was recently interviewed by the Breitbart News Network. Part I was published on Thursday, with Part II scheduled for Friday. "This is a step in the rehabilitation of my business." That´s how the 12th moderator of NBC´s Meet the Press opened a wide-ranging phone interview with Breitbart News. He admitted that the media is biased toward liberals (though believes this bias is more cultural than political) and acknowledged that having political operatives cross over into media roles is not good.

The telling sentence in NPR’s report that US attorney general Eric Holder plans to step down once a successor is confirmed came near the end of the story. “Friends and former colleagues say Holder has made no decisions about his next professional perch,” NPR writes, “but they say it would be no surprise if he returned to the law firm Covington & Burling, where he spent years representing corporate clients.” A large chunk of Covington & Burling’s corporate clients are mega-banks like JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and Bank of America.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. announced Thursday he is resigning as soon as a replacement is found, though he and the Justice Department still face contempt of Congress charges that will linger well after he officially gives up the office. Analysts said Mr. Holder — the first sitting Cabinet official ever to face a contempt citation from Congress — will likely duck any legal punishment, though his department will soon be forced to begin turning over the documents he withheld, which sparked the initial fight. It’s just the latest in a series of stormy disputes that have defined his

(Video) Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst released a trio of ads on Thursday emphasizing her military service in Iraq. The radio and TV ads feature testimonials from Iraq War veterans who served alongside Ernst, a lieutenant colonel in the Iowa National Guard. The commercials highlight the continued emphasis national security issues have received in the deadlocked race between Ernst and Rep. Bruce Braley (D), whom Republicans have repeatedly hit over veterans issues. The contest to replace retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) could decide which party controls the Senate next year.

The interview, which will tape Friday and air on the Sunday broadcast of the show, will touch on issues both foreign and domestic, the network said. It will be the president´s first since the launch of airstrikes in Syria targeting Islamist militants. The interview will also likely touch on Attorney General Eric Holder´s decision to resign, and midterm elections that are less than six weeks away.

On two occasions she charged that Republican governors insulted women with the “back of [their] hands.” Wasserman Schultz, the congresswoman for Florida’s 23rd district, was forced to apologize earlier this month after she accused Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker of using the back of his hand against women. Politico reported: “Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality,” Wasserman Schultz said during a roundtable meeting in Wisconsin.

In the wake of President Obama’s speech yesterday at the U.N. General Assembly, there were reports of another chemical weapons attack near Damascus launched by Bashar al-Assad’s regime. If true, Assad is just drawing the logical conclusion from the president’s speech and the administration’s actions over the last several weeks. The policy of the Obama White House is to target Sunni extremism. That means that Assad and his partners in the Iranian resistance axis are virtually untouchable. Indeed, the administration advised Tehran before launching strikes on ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra Monday that the strikes would do no damage to the

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to raise the minimum wage for hotel workers to $15.37, one of the highest wage requirements in the country. Hotel workers in yellow shirts packed City Hall as the council voted 12 to 3 to approve the measure, which will go into effect for hotels with at least 300 rooms beginning in July. Hotels with 150 rooms or more will have to meet the wage requirement a year later. “Hotel workers are here because they want family-supporting wages,” said Maria Elena Durazo, executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, during the public

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known.

President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology. However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of
