“Coffee Is for Closers!”
“Second Place Is a Set of Steak Knives.”
The last candidate that Don Beyer wants to run against in November is probably the guy who implicated him in a conspiracy to commit bribery to alter the outcome of the 2016 election, and the whistleblower who recently filed a formal complaint about that legislator’s acceptance of illegal donations from a super PAC.
According to the Arlington Sun Gazette, Major Mike Webb “ran several times for office in the late 1980s and early 1990s in New Jersey,” and that is almost accurate. Major Mike Webb was actually in college at Washington & Lee University in the late 1980s, the most competitive college in Virginia, where he was elected as the first African American to student body office, serving on their unique Executive Committee that administers an entirely student run, “single sanction” honor system. Webb chose the ninth oldest college in the nation where General Robert E. Lee retired from public life after the War Between the States, and established what became the operating rule: that students conduct themselves as gentlemen, who did not lie, cheat or steal.
Before college, Major Mike Webb experimented with politics, managing the election of the first African American Governor of New Jersey Boys’ State, a miraculous triumph of “a science geek” over an all-state football hero, and even today he still holds the all-time record for a Republican running for the State Assembly in New Jersey’s 31 Legislative District, a race in which he managed to beat the Mayor of Bayonne and Assembly Speaker in the Mayor’s hometown of Bayonne, despite losing the race. But that race in what is by reputation the most corrupt political environment in the Northeast, from which federal law enforcement continue to prosecute convictions in Operation Big Rig, begun in the 1990s, taught Major Mike Webb that politics is not a comfortable place for a preacher’s kid, prompting a pursuit for excellence in public service in the military, where he was identified as one of the best Rangers in the elite Ranger Regiment and actually ordered to attend Officer Candidate School, from where he was branched in Military Intelligence, obtaining experience in strategic counterintelligence, and laying a foundation for a career specializing in Force Protection and Force Projection. Amazingly, over 50 today, Major Mike Webb proved that he could still pass a Ranger PT Test, and ran faster than 75% of the participants in the Army Ten Miler in 2016.
“Do I Have Your Attention?”
Major Mike Webb has already distinguished himself by capturing press attention that is needed to build momentum and ranked in the top five of campaign receipts and expenditures for Republican candidates in VA8, reporting a year end total over $217,000. His nearest competitor has only raised just under $4,000. But Major Mike Webb has been able to do this because he has been involved in politics practically since birth, and he has been engaged in fighting for conservative causes in Northern Virginia since his race in 2016.
Major Mike Webb has delivered oral arguments to the State Supreme Court to challenge the renaming of Washington-Lee High School, and has, in the absence of even the NAACP and ACLU, presented briefs to fight for civil liberties and civil rights when liberal courts attempted to turn back the tide on progress.
Major Mike Webb has argued complex issues in cases of first impression to protect interest advocacy campaigns from tortious interference, to protect the due process rights of federal job applicants and to reverse a withdrawal policy decreed by the Merit Systems Protection Board, in the absence of the required public comment period, that works to fraudulently induce federal workers to forfeit their appeals of right, and not even the Federal Employees’ Union joined the challenge to protect the rights of federal government whistleblowers.
Major Mike Webb has been a champion voice for babes in the womb, threatened by the business of abortion, a voice for minority students victimized even in the best public schools in the Commonwealth by an achievement gap over a century and a half old and a champion for the unabridged right to bear arms, but not even one word has been written in the press, despite the claims of the Washington Post that democracy dies in darkness.
“I Know That You Are Interested.”
In the 58th most reliable congressional district in the nation, and top gaining Democrat congressional district in 2016, it would be the equivalent of conceding victory before November if a parachute candidate with no experience was nominated at the end of May in the congressional district that the Washington Post admitted in November 2017 has decided the outcome of every statewide election in the past two decades. And only one candidate for the GOP nomination in VA8 has been doing the homework and working to clean the swamp, re-elect the President and make America great again since 2016.
“Have You Made Your Decision FOR Christ?”
Would you let a person with no experience repair your car, fly an airplane or perform open heart surgery?
Would you let a person who has demonstrated multiple times that he cannot win votes for himself or the ticket, much less raise the required funding be the anchorman for Virginia in 2020?
Even President Abraham Lincoln knew that when he had a losing general to let him go, and when he had a winning general to let him win.
So, what do I have to say to get you in this CAUSE?
“Attention, Interest, Decision, ACTION (AIDA)!”
Major Mike Webb. Always RIGHT and NEVER LEFT. There really is no other choice.
