The Washington elite, both on the left and right, have adopted an approach to relentlessly and continually hit true patriotic conservatives with flat out lies and twisting of the truth; they repeatedly attack anyone who stands up for our Republic and Judeo-Christian values. Their main goal is not even to sway voters to their side but to so disgust people with the political process that they do not vote at all.
We need to recognize this abhorrent strategy utilized by the Left and the Republican Establishment by educating ourselves and others on primary races, praying for discernment, no longer listening to the mainstream media who have shown no compunction in lying to further their own agenda, and seeking out the facts when we see candidates receiving vicious media attacks.
A race where such gutter smear tactics are on full display is the battle for the Republican nominee to United States Congress for the 6th District of Virginia. Cynthia Dunbar, a well known and respected stalwart Christian Conservative who has earned the endorsements of Ted Cruz, Ron Paul, Carol Swain, Michelle Bachman, Mat Staver, Eagle Forum, Susan B Anthony List as well as many other respected conservative leaders, has been fighting in the trenches her entire life for our Judeo-Christian values. She is now being viciously attacked by the liberal media and her establishment opponent. She needs the financial support of every grassroots lover of liberty around the nation.
Her opponent has used his establishment money and connections in the media in an attempt to disparage her grassroots supporters, cut into her fundraising, and maliciously destroy her character and reputation. Now her opponent has even filed a bogus FEC complaint just weeks prior to the primary knowing that the fake news would twist the complaint to use as more ammo against Dunbar. This race is crucial because it is for the most conservative district in the Commonwealth of Virginia and is a determinative primary. A victory for the true conservative could set the stage for statewide victories for other true conservatives, turning VA Red!
Just a few of the Attacks against Dunbar
- lies that she has been disciplined by the TX and VA Bar Associations;
- accusations that she is guilty of tax evasion;
- attacks on personal character calling her a child predator, adulterer, bigamist, lesbian;
- forged letter from her opponent making it appear she is inciting domestic terrorism;
- fake emails appearing to come from her stating, “We’ve been blinded by Satan;”
- menacing calls being made to her delegates frightening them from showing up;
- voter suppression calls to minority delegates;
- bogus FEC complaint filed strategically prior to the convention and forwarded to the press (It is a known establishment tactic to hire staff to file complaints weeks prior to an election in order to create media hype);
- You can hear her response to a few of these attacks at a press conference she held.
Who is Cynthia Dunbar?
Cynthia Dunbar first entered the national spotlight during her time as an elected member of the State Board of Education in Texas. At the time, the Wall Street Journal called the Texas Board of Education, “the most influential board in the nation.” In just one term on the board, she was able to put our founding documents back in school textbooks so that students would learn the Declaration of Independence and our Constitutional Republic. She was also able to get academic freedom back in the biology classrooms so all theories on origins of life are taught. Because of her effectiveness, the liberal media, including the New York Times, Huffington Post, Washington Post, and even the London Guardian, began lying about Dunbar, perverting her achievements and maligning her character. As a result of these blatant lies, she began receiving death threats that she had to turn over to the FBI. These threats reached the point that her children had to be escorted to school under police protection.
After her time on the Texas SBOE, Cynthia went on to teach about our Constitutional Republic at Liberty University School of Law. As a Constitutional Scholar who has studied our Constitution and charter documents, she was able to teach Foundations of Law, Constitutional Clinic, First Amendment Law Seminar and many others. Due to her knowledge of the Constitution and our nation’s founding, and her tireless effort and effectiveness at impacting policy nationally, people all over sought her out, begging her to seek elected office.
It wasn’t until 2016 that she agreed to serve and was duly elected as Virginia’s National Committeewoman to the RNC. During the 2016 Republican National Convention, Dunbar served on the Platform Committee which put forth the most conservative Republican Platform yet. In her brief tenure as National Committeewoman, she has sponsored several substantive resolutions, including one that calls on Congress to support the President, uphold the Platform and keep its Promises, and another that pushes to make President Trump’s regulatory reform permanent.
We are in a war for the heart and soul of our nation. The Liberal agenda and the Republican establishment are bent on destroying the foundations of our nation by trampling on the Constitution of our great Republic. The 2018 midterms are crucial to save our nation. The Republican party clearly needs a shaking. The Republican establishment has completely abandoned both the Republican platform and the Constitution and are sliding ever closer toward full-blown socialism alongside the Democratic party, evidenced most recently by the passing of the Omnibus bill. This bill is textbook Democrat, yet it was passed by a Republican Congress.
The reason this egregious bill passed is that Career Politicians care more for their own gain than properly representing their constituents and upholding the Republican platform. They have failed in their duties, and in order to reclaim our nation and Republican Party, our first action must be to remove them from office. Any and all who value the freedoms protected for us by our Constitution must fully engage in Republican primaries and nominating processes so that we can take back our party to save our nation. We need to recognize the weapons of the left and of the Republican establishment, particularly their use of both liberal mainstream and social media to destroy anyone who is a true conservative.
