Republican House incumbent, who voted to impeach Trump, loses primary

| August 3, 2022

Trump endorsed candidate, John Gibbs, defeated Representative Peter Meijer of Michigan during the primary. Meijer was one of the Republicans in the House who voted to impeach Donald Trump. Gibbs faces the winner of the Democrat primary, Hillary Scholten, for the midterm.

From Fox News:

Trump celebrated Gibbs’ victory in a post on Truth Social where he thanked his supporters.

“Fantastic night in Michigan! Tudor Dixon will be a great Governor. John Gibbs WON with a big surge in the end. Not a good time for Impeachers – 7 down, 3 to go! Thank you Michigan!” he wrote in the post.

Just before AP officially called the race for Gibbs, Meijer conceded the primary contest.

“A constitutional republic like ours requires leaders who are willing to take on the big challenges, to find common ground when possible, and to put their love of country before partisan advantage,” Meijer said. “Though this was not the outcome we hoped for, I will continue to do everything possible to move the Republican Party, West Michigan, and our country in a positive direction.”

Republicans currently hold 211 seats and need to reach 218 in order to win control of the House of Representatives from the Democrats, something most analysts believe inevitable given historical trends and the unpopularity of President Biden’s administration.

Fox News has the balance of the story here.

Schadenfreude! I love it!

On the flip side, thus far 96% of Trump endorsed candidates have won their primary.

I guess on 16-August we’ll find out if her begging Wyoming DemocRATS to change parties and vote for her in the GOP Primary has borne fruit.

Adio, pendejo.

The list of RINOS who will be receiving a package of A Bag of Dicks is growing.

What sucks is that some of them have been there long enough to collect a pension.

Thieving bastards and bastardettes.

When you objectively abuse your powers as a jurist, regardless of evidence, indicting a fellow American of subversions against We the People, in furtherance of your political means, and act to ingratiate yourself to a bastardization of our founding’s intent…

Being fired is literally the least you deserve.

Looks like the Democrats are using proxies to get Trump supported candidates to win their primaries, with the long plan being that no one would ever vote for a Trump supported politician in the general election. They have short memories. Their co-conspirators in the Mainstream Media slung tar at every mainstream Republican in the hood that Trump would be the candidate for November 2016. Trump winning in 2016 was not so much that America wanted Trump, they voted to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.

And after the Average Joe Six Toes got burned under Biden’s “Build Back Hunter’s Bank Account”, you can expect to see a lot of Democrats who will be updating their Linked In profiles come November.

I tried the false flag op in the PDRofMD, registering as a Dem to vote in their Primary.
Didn’t pan out- the stupid, it burned. And made the general anyway.

“Biden Tests Positive For COVID-19 Again, Will Continue Isolation”

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-tests-positive-covid-19-again-will-continue-isolation

“President Biden on Wednesday is continuing to test positive for the coronavirus positive and therefore will maintain his “strict isolation measures,” the White House’s doctor says.”

NDHoosier

“COVID isolation” is a good way to keep Joebama from spewing forth his usual random string of syllables, although with the help of a teleprompter, he can say something cogent like “Repeat the line.”

Forrest Bondurant

Biden said something along the the lines “…this is the pandemic of the vaccinated”, almost a year to the day he was first diagnosed.

Hack Stone

Whatever happened with that plan to beat COVID that he spoke of during the campaign? He is probably too focused on his moon shot to cure cancer.

Well, this is interesting…

See Hack’s comment above. It didn’t work for Hillary in 2016, it won’t work for them in 2022. And when those Trump endorsed candidates are swept into office, the Woke Left will be crying about the extremists now in office. You stick your nose in other peoples business, you’re going to end up with a broken index finger.

Gibbs’ opponent, a ditzy dem, has already started begging Meijer’s supporters to support her in the general election. Doesn’t she know that we’re fed up with politicians named Hillary?

A GOP US Congresswoman from Indiana along w/ 2 aides was killed in a two-car crash. The driver of the other car in the head on collision was also killed. RIP to all.

Given the socialist democrats total lack of any ethics or moral values, I would look heavily into the other driver to see if it was a kamikaze attack to take out a republican. those motherfuckers are certainly capable of it these days.

Hey Meijer, Buh-BYE, SCHMUCK!

Are any of them real republicans, or are they all establishment Republicans? AKA socialist dem lite.
