Virginia state delegate Nick Freitas, a staunch liberty conservative, is touting an endorsement from Rep. Dan “McCain 2.0” Crenshaw (R-TX), the gun-grabbing neocon lawmaker who supports endless wars in the Middle East.
“As a Green Beret combat veteran, Nick Freitas knows what it means to make tough decisions while under immense pressure. This experience and Nick’s record as a proven conservative leader in Virginia means that he has what it takes to stand strong for our conservative values in D.C.,” Crenshaw said in his endorsement.
“We must take back Virginia’s 7th District, and I know Nick Freitas is the only candidate we can trust to take it back,” he added.
The endorsement came as a surprise to many, after Freitas has frequently appeared at Young Americans for Liberty events and called himself a champion of the 2nd Amendment with an “America First” foreign policy.
Liberty Conservative News reached out to Freitas’ campaign manager Joe Disilets last week. We had a discussion regarding Freitas’ relationship with Crenshaw and whether or not Freitas was planning to work with Crenshaw on his anti-constitutional policy proposals were he elected to Congress.
Desilets said that “no particulars” had been discussed regarding a possible working relationship between Freitas and Crenshaw. He said that Crenshaw, who he described as a “natural leader in the party” reached out to Freitas with the endorsement which he happily accepted.
“I can tell you what Nick’s priorities are… It’s not giving one inch on the 2nd Amendment, not giving one inch on the life issue, and working with Donald Trump to secure the border, build the wall, and finish enacting his “America First” agenda,” Desilets said.
Freitas would under no circumstances, according to Disilets, support Crenshaw’s push for red flag gun control if he were elected to Congress.
“Here in Virginia, the Democrat-controlled state Senate just passed red flag laws so Nick will get the opportunity to gleefully vote against it any day now,” Disilets said.
Disilets touted Freitas’ endorsement from Gun Owners of America, and his appearance at the 2nd Amendment rally in Richmond last week to bolster his candidate’s credentials regarding gun rights.
When pressed about Freitas’ foreign policy views, Disilets said that Freitas closely echoes President Trump regarding the Middle East, and that the candidate has not discussed foreign policy particulars with Crenshaw.
“Nick wants us to have the best-equipped, best-trained, strongest military in the world, but he is with President Trump on wanting to use restraint in kind of when and how we use our military,” he said.
Still, Disilets said he was “sure they agree in upwards of 90 percent on policy issues” and the two men have the “same mission” in “working to take back the House to help President Trump pass his conservative agenda.” Crenshaw has not been scheduled to raise funds on Freitas’ behalf, but Disilets does not rule the possibility out.
Disilets concluded by telling liberty-minded people who might be concerned about the Crenshaw association to watch Freitas’ upcoming votes in the Virginia legislature, as Democrats led by Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam aggressively push anti-2nd Amendment legislation.
Freitas is one of seven candidates running in the GOP primary for Virginia’s 7th District Congressional race. Freitas hopes to unseat Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a freshman Congresswoman who unseated incumbent Congressman Dave Brat in 2018.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
