‘Never Trump’ Leader Confirms That Primary Loser Denver Riggleman Has Always Hated the President

Riggleman was reportedly being disingenuous about Trump.

Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) will be leaving office after losing a contentious primary to Bob Good, a former Campbell County supervisor and employee with Liberty University, on Saturday.

Riggleman won the endorsement of President Donald Trump, but the delegates in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District were not swayed by the libertine who officiated a gay marriage shortly after being elected to national office.

The delegates were apparently smart to get rid of Riggleman, who “Never Trump” leader Bill Kristol has said is a private critic of the President, but lacks the courage and fortitude to express his truthful opinion publicly.

Kristol made the announcement in a Twitter post:

Riggleman’s has expressed his disdain publicly for President Trump in the past. Before running for Congress and reinventing himself as a pro-Trump Republican, he talked about how he would never vote for Trump and how he was not a better choice for the presidency than Hillary Clinton.

Big League Politics reported on Riggleman’s shameful comments:

Riggleman’s libertarian brand of politics also caused him to not support President Trump during his presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Riggleman called Trump a “buffoon” and said there was little difference between he and Hillary Clinton in a social media post shortly before the 2016 election.

“I will be writing myself in for President,” Riggleman declared with just a couple of weeks before the election.

In his post, Riggleman noted that he had “no problem with Trump being investigated by the media” before giving Clinton credit for having a “much better political machine” than Trump.

He wrote that Clinton voters should “take a second look at her incredible mountain of pass transgressions.” Despite his apparent disdain for Clinton, it wasn’t enough for Riggleman to support Trump who he called a “buffoon.”

“There’s good people voting for [Clinton]. Just make sure you vote with eyes wide open,” Riggleman said. “The American public gets what they deserve… we put these 2 buffoons in these positions. No one else is to blame.”

Even though he was the incumbent, his opponent won with 58 percent of the votes at Saturday’s convention. This shows that the hardcore activists were not fooled by Riggleman’s disingenuous posturing. They went with the genuine article and gave their support to a long-time conservative activist in Good.

Good, who described himself as a “bright red Biblical and constitutional conservative,” said that he is looking forward to making the 5th District “bright red again” by displacing Riggleman, who may have learned a hard lesson about what happens when a politician disrespects his constituents.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
