Robert Foster, the establishment favorite to win a congressional seat in Mississippi, recently refused to be shadowed by a female journalist, completely ignoring that she is obviously and vocally playing for the other team.
The candidate has been routinely derided for being an establishment “insider”, considered the Manchurian pick for the seat due to his previous support for Democrat-led bailouts for unions and Medicaid, which may explain why conservative media leapt to his defense and marginalized the journalist by ignoring her sexual orientation.
Foster recently made headlines for taking a page from Vice President Mike Pence’s book and refusing to be shadowed by a female journalist unless a male colleague joined her. The entire media lambasted Foster for his allegedly sexist decision, but missed the most glaring, obvious part of his stupidity: the journalist is a proud lesbian who invited President Barack Obama to attend her gay wedding.
Before our decision to run, my wife and I made a commitment to follow the “Billy Graham Rule”, which is to avoid any situation that may evoke suspicion or compromise of our marriage. I am sorry Ms. Campbell doesn’t share these views, but my decision was out of respect of my wife. https://t.co/5tjH2x2g65

The journalist, a woman named Larrison Campbell, said she was informed by Foster that “Perception is everything,” and she would not be allowed to shadow him.
Colton Robison, Foster’s campaign director, offered Campbell an opportunity to follow the candidate but said she would need a male colleague accompanying her, she said in an article in her paper Tuesday.
“Perception is everything,” Campbell quoted Robison as saying. “We are so close to the primary. If (trackers) were to get a picture and they put a mailer out, we wouldn’t have time to dispute it. And that’s why we have to be careful.”
According to Campbell, the decision ultimately stemmed from her gender. “The only reason you think that people will think I’m having a (improper) relationship with your candidate is because I am a woman,” she said she told him.
Apparently Foster’s campaign lacks the opportunity to utilize Google, or even DuckDuckGo, as a quick search would reveal there is little chance the married lesbian would create controversy for his campaign.
In 2013, she invited Obama to her gay wedding:
@BarackObama when you're through with your to-do in Palm Springs tonight, you should swing by the best lesbian wedding ever!

The wedding was written about in the New York Times:
Aline Larrison Campbell and Courtenay Adler Green were joined in a civil union Friday at the Frederick Loewe Estate, an event venue and the former home of the composer, in Palm Springs, Calif. Hudson Morgan, a friend of the couple who became an American Marriage Ministries minister for the occasion, officiated.
Ms. Campbell (left), 34, is known as Larrison. Until last year, she was an assistant in the comedy development department at ABC in Los Angeles. She graduated with honors from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., and received a master’s in journalism from Columbia.
More recently, in 2018, Larrison wrote an article for Architectural Daily explaining why she decided to move her family – herself and her wife – to Mississippi, writing that “During Christmas with my family in 2014, my wife and I announced that she was pregnant with twins.”
Perhaps the mainstream media marginalized Larrison’s sexual orientation as an attempt to make Foster look even more sexist, but the fact that he overlooked this well publicized fact about Larrison suggests, ultimately, his campaign is as incompetent as it is Manchurian.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
