Trump-supporting Gulf War veteran Shak Hill is challenging Congresswoman Barbara Comstock in the 2018 Republican primary for Virginia’s 10th District congressional seat.
“There are a huge number of people desperately disappointed with Barbara. She is a creature of the swamp,” Hill told Big League Politics in an exclusive interview. Hill has filed the official paperwork and there will be a formal announcement next week. He announced his entry into the race privately at Thursday night’s Loudon County GOP dinner.
Hill, who previously served as a city councilor and challenged Ed Gillespie for the Senate, is not happy that Comstock’s political career is bankrolled to a large extent by neoconservative Establishment power broker Paul Singer, the hedge fund mogul.
“Barbara ran as a conservative replacement to longtime Republican Frank Wolf. She used her own words on the Mark Levin Show that she was a Reaganite. Now Mark Levin has railed on her because she is voting like a drunken Democrat. She has sold her voting card to the establishment and it’s clear she’s not representing the people,” Hill said.
“She said she was going to vote to repeal Obamacare, back when everybody knew that Obama was going to veto (any repeal attempt). This year when the vote came up in the House she voted with every single Democrat to oppose the repeal of Obamacare.”
“The military is designed to break things and kill people. I have two boys in the United States Army, enlisted men to serve our country and to protect their way of life. Three days ago my son received orders to go to Afghanistan. Instead of utilizing the limited resources available to the Department of Defense to buy more kevlar vests and armored vehicles, Barbara voted with every single Democrat to allow elective surgeries for those who are not stable in their own gender identity,” Hill said.
“I flew in Desert Storm One. I slept on a cot on the desert floor. My brother Chris was in the disputed territory between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, and he slept on the desert. Mission readiness and cohesion and knowing that you have each other’s back is the most important thing,” Hill said. “My wife is a very healthy cancer survivor. Through the course of her surgeries that we had through the military there was a need to have a plastic surgeon to repair skin in her left leg. That was denied. Plastic surgery is not covered by the Tricare system. Well, transgender surgery is 100 percent elective.”
“We can go to the omnibus bill, to the fact that she isn’t supporting President Trump on anything. She publicly returned his campaign donation. She has a knee-jerk reaction against the President. On a lot of policy decisions if you’re anti-Trump you’re anti-American.”
“At the Loudon County meeting last night I had a third of the room whisper to me that they’re all in,” Hill said. “There are people who want to see the success and abandon the politics of Comstock. They are searching for somebody who believes in liberty and American exceptionalism. They are hoping that they’ve found that with me. They have.”
“We have a finance committee that is already shaping up. We have national conservative attention watching our race and have expressed interest in our race in the last 48 hours and we haven’t even announced.”
“I’m a reluctant politician. I think the people of America want representatives to be real. I think they used to think you have to have some experience in Washington. This was the prevailing thought. We accepted politics as usual. Trump has showed us that it is anything but. The people want REAL representation.”
Hill, who grew up “solid lower middle-class,” and his wife were foster parents for 16 years beginning in 1997 and fostered 46 children of different races.
“We can cut through this Democrat crap, oh you’re a rich white guy and you hate the blacks. No. cut it out, just cut it out,” Hill said.
Hill is not impressed by the opposition research that Comstock’s team, he claims, is digging up on him.
“Barbara is throwing mud that I have a Senate campaign debt. This is true, but it’s my personal debt that I put into the campaign because I paid everyone else off. I have no outstanding debts from the general public,” Hill said.
“The struggle of the human race is power against individual liberty. We know in 1776 that the King represented power. That’s the way the world worked back then, it was a king, it was a potentate. Our founders realized the genius of the American individual. Today we have the same exact struggle, power versus individual liberty. We don’t have delineated tug of war ropes, it’s not Republican vs. Democrat. It’s power versus individual liberty. Barbara has sold her vote in Congress for power.”
Comstock’s office did not immediately return a request for comment.

Week After U.S. Senate Nomination, Virginia Delegation Silent on Corey Stewart
A full week after Corey Stewart won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Virginia, earning the right to take on incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), elected officials at the highest level of the Virginia GOP have failed to announce their support for the candidate.
In fact, they have actively avoided the question, and predictably, Democrats have seized on the opportunity to make them look foolish.
GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) dodged American Bridge’s questions a few days ago:

Big League Politics reached out to Comstock personally, and to her office. Neither returned a request for comment.
Alleged Republican Rep. Scott Taylor (VA-02) would not talk either:
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
“Reach out to my office,” Taylor said.
Big League Politics did just that. Timothys Foster, Talyor’s spokesman, did not return our email request for comment.
Republican Rep. Dave Brat failed to express support for Stewart too, though he came close.
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
“Judeo-Christian values, that’s what I’m running on,” said Brat. “I’ll support anyone who shares those values.”
Brat did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment either.
Stewart was embroiled in controversy during his primary run after the neo-liberal website Daily Wire ran a dishonest hit piece on him, claiming that he was an anti-Semite. There is no proof to support the allegation, other than Stewart’s support for Paul Nehlan, who made anti-semitic remarks. At the time of the questionable comments, Nehlan had the support of most of the GOP. He has since wholly denounced by the Stewart and the rest of the party.
For their part, the Republican Party of Virginia expressed support for Stewart via Twitter. When Stewart appeared on CNN for an interview with host Chris Cuomo, the liberal anchor tried to peg Stewart as a racist. Stewart replied by pointing out that Cuomo’s family has long been tied to anti-Semitism.
.@ChrisCuomo Oh and your brother, again NY GOV, publicly made fun of Jews like two months ago but, according to you, there is totally no racism or Antisemitism on the left side of the isle correct? https://t.co/kznowavkKK
— Virginia GOP (RPV) (@VA_GOP) June 14, 2018
Former RPV executive Shaun Kenney denounced the party’s support.
“It’s not just eccentric, it’s offensive,” he said. “In a previous era, had a member of RPV staff issued comments like that, I would have fired them on the spot.”
The morally superior virtue-signaling will get the Virginia GOP nowhere. Making false allegations of racism is a decades-old strategy used by Democrats against Republicans. They make the same claims against nearly every GOP candidate running for an important office.
But the establishment GOP, no matter how many times the Democrats have played the race card, still have not figured out the left’s tricks.
It is time to stand with Corey Stewart. Anything less is de facto support for Hillary Clinton sycophant Kaine, a hard-leftist who has failed Virginians in his tenure as a Senator.
Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee
A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.
According to the letter that was obtained by CNN, Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”
Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”
The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.
Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.
This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:
“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!
Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.””
BLP Passage Ends.
Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.
“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”
Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
Oversized: Rosie O’Donnell Makes Potentially Illegal Campaign Donations
According to a New York Post analysis of campaign filings, Rosie O’Donnell made illegally oversized donations to five federal Democrat candidates.
“Nothing nefarious,” the washed up comedian and Donald Trump critic said. “I was not choosing to over donate.”
But O’Donnell regularly broke the Federal Election Commission’s rules that limit donations to $2,700 per candidate per election campaign. The limit is applies separately to primaries, run-offs, and general elections, with each considered a new race.
“If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money,” she said. “I don’t look to see who I can donate most to … I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit.”
But intent is not an element of the crime, and O’Donnell’s blind faith that politicians would simply return her money if she over-donated is either pathetically naive or a lie to cover for herself.
O’Donnell donated $4,700 to Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in his race against Judge Roy Moore. Jones won the race by
She also gave $3,700 to Rep. Conor Lamb, (D-PA), $2,950 to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), $4,200 to Lauren Underwood, a current Illinois congressional candidate, and $3,450 to Omar Vaid, an outsider congressional candidate from Staten Island, NY.
“My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing Trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed,” she said.
Don’t worry plebeians, O’Donnell quells her anxiety by throwing bundles of cash at Democrats and breaking the law. Perhaps someone at the FEC can alert her that there’s medicine for that. And people still wonder why the political left is so out of touch with the average American.
According to campaign finance lawyer Jan Witold Baran, donors are rarely fined for excess contributions and then only if they are hiding the donations from the recipients. She said that campaigns generally are not penalized for isolated contributions over a limit.
Candidates who receive excess donations are allowed simply to roll the excess funds over to their next campaign.
In effect, the law is useless as it is seldom enforced. Leave it to the D.C. swamp.
“I also maxed out to Cynthia Nixon,” O’Donnell told the Post. “And I loathe Jeannine Pirro.”
