West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Switches Parties to Republican at Trump Rally Last Night! (VIDEO)
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WOWS THEM IN WEST VIRGINIA …
Last night President Donald Trump took his “MAGA” tour to the state of West Virginia. A state that was once a blue collar, coal mining Democrat blue strong hold that now is as red a one can be. He was received by throngs of admiring West Virginians at the rally. Trump stated to the crowd, “we didn’t win because of Russia, we won because of you.” And this is what Democrats, the MSM and the LEFT just don’t get and cannot stomach. They can complain all they want about Hillary’s loss and attempt a coup with this Mueller witch hunt, but keep in mind, the American people are not buying it. For those that say, but look at the polls, Trump’s support is low. How accurate were those polls for the 2016 elections? The MSM are trying to spin a yarn of BS. Any one with a brain knows that. However, Trump’s presence was not the only magical moment last night in WV as Governor Jim Justice shocked the crowd by anouncing he was switching parties and becoming a Republican. Gov. Justice said, “Like it or not, but the Democrats walked away from me. West Virginia, I can’t help you anymore by being a Democratic governor.”
Democratic Governor of West Virginia Jim Justice announced he is switching to the Republican Party at President Donald Trump’s rally in his state on Thursday evening.
“Today, I tell you as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” said Justice. “So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.”
Earlier in the day, Trump teased a “big announcement” at the event in Huntington, West Virginia. Thursday night, he praised the 6-foot-7-inch governor he nicknamed “Big Jim” for “show[ing] the country our agenda rises above left or right.”
News of Justice’s plans, which were first reported by The New York Times, surprised Republicans and Democrats alike in West Virginia. Prior to the news, the West Virginia GOP had even published an ill-timed tweet attacking Justice for being “low-energy.”
But in a statement obtained by ABC News earlier today, the West Virginia GOP Chairman Conrad Lucas said, “We look forward to Governor Justice reflecting the conservative values of our Party and platform.”
Lucas added to ABC News, “The rumors about Justice switching parties had been percolating since the legislative session. This wasn’t a new rumor for us at all.”
Governor Jim Justice will be the 34th Republican governor in the US today.
It’s not immediately clear why Justice is doing an about-face. But the fact he is underscores just how fragile Democrats’ hold on power is. With one politician’s decision to switch parties, Democrats now hold a record-low number of governorships — and Republicans hold a record high.
Justice will be the 34th Republican governor, tying an all-time high for the party. Republicans now control both the governor’s mansions and state legislatures in 26 states. Democrats have total control in just six states. (In 2018, they’ll have a chance to pick up governorships, with Republicans defending 27 of 38 seats, many in blue or purple states.)
JUST HOW MENTALLY SICK IS THE LEFT?
President Donald Trump delivered a speech to the 2017 National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia on Monday night, to the joy of the Scouts in attendance and to the outrage and indignation of some reporters. What a shock. President Trump praised the Boy Scouts and their success, but the small minded MSM and LEFT could only hear what they wanted to. How very sad. It would appear that the MSM took offense to being called “fake news” and because President Trump referenced loyalty in his speech. It didn’t take long for the LEFT to become unhinged, but of course they never had a problem when Barack Obama would go into class rooms and teachers would indoctrinate the youth of America, Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama. Oh the hypocrisy. The LEFT just cannot get over the fact that President Trump is loved by many. The LEFT just cannot stand, God, Country, Brave, Loyalty and other good qualities.
President Donald Trump turned a Boy Scouts event into a campaign-style rally Monday, starting off by saying he’d put aside the “fake news” and other issues in Washington while addressing the Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree.
“I said, who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?” Trump said.
Trump went on to dive into politics anyway — blasting the media, pushing for the repeal of Obamacare and making a pointed remark about “loyalty.”
Listing off the virtues of Boy Scouts at the West Virginia speech, Trump said: “As the scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal,” Trump said, before adding, “We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that.”
Just a note to the clueless and vile LEFT, who hate the Boy Scouts anyhow, there is a reason why President Trump referenced loyalty. Because according to the Boy Scout Law, a Scout is:
JOHN GLENN, A TRUE AMERICAN HERO HAS PASSED AWAY …
Astronaut, aviator, US Senator and American icon and hero, John Glenn has passed away at the age of 95. Glenn died at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio, surrounded by family including his wife Annie. What a remarkable life. As a Marine Corps pilot, Glenn broke the transcontinental flight speed record before being the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. Then, 36 years later at age 77 in 1998, becoming the oldest man in space as a member of the seven-astronaut crew of the shuttle Discovery. In a time in which we all dreamed of growing up to be astronauts, John Glenn made that a possibility. He is a national treasure and will be missed. Farewell to an American hero … Godspeed, John Glenn.
His legend is otherworldly and now, at age 95, so is John Glenn.
An authentic hero and genuine American icon, Glenn died this afternoon surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus after a remarkably healthy life spent almost from the cradle with Annie, his beloved wife of 73 years, who survives.
He, along with fellow aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright and moon-walker Neil Armstrong, truly made Ohio first in flight.
“John Glenn is, and always will be, Ohio’s ultimate hometown hero, and his passing today is an occasion for all of us to grieve,” said Ohio Gov. John R. Kasich. “As we bow our heads and share our grief with his beloved wife, Annie, we must also turn to the skies, to salute his remarkable journeys and his long years of service to our state and nation.
The John Glenn Story
Sadly, with the passing of John Glenn, this means that all of the original 7 astronauts chosen to lead the fledgling US space program in 1959 are now dead. They were the last of a dying breed of space explorers who were larger than life. Maybe this will wake NASA up and they can get back to doing what NASA was intended to do.

- Alan B. Shepard, Jr.

MAYBE HOLLYWOOD AND THE LEFT CAN TAKE A QUEUE FROM TOM HANKS … ’We are going to be all right’
While being awarded at the Museum of Modern Art 9th annual film benefit actor Tom Hanks said the following, “This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second. I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.” What a novel concept, rooting for America and place it over party. The Oscar-award winning actor was also recently selected among 21 key figures to be awarded the highest civilian honor in the United States, the 2016 Presidential Medal of Freedom.
A week after the election, with many New Yorkers still feeling uneasy about the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, a number of entertainment industry luminaries gathered at the Museum of Modern Art to honor Tom Hanks with the organization’s ninth annual Film Benefit, presented by Chanel.
The election results, a surprising outcome for many who opposed Trump, led MoMA’s chief film curator Rajendra Roy to scrap many of his planned jokes, he said, and just proclaim, “Thank God for Tom Hanks.”
Prior to the presidential election, Hanks spoke out against Trump’s lewd Access Hollywood comments, saying he was “offended as a man” and criticizing the then-Republican nominee for his lack of government experience. But speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the black carpet leading into the gala, he reiterated what he’d said in April on CBS This Morning, and what he would later say in his speech, that the country and its people would be OK.
“This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second,” Hanks told THR. “I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.”
The actor also made it clear that he’d heard Michael Moore’s suggestion that Hanks run for president and he wasn’t too happy about it, indicating he felt he was unfit for the position.
“Not to be completely, over and over coming back to the same thing that I would like to strangle Michael Moore on in offering my name in order to be something other than a CPA, which I’m not qualified to be either,” Hanks said onstage. “We will take everything that has been handed to us as Americans, and we will turn our nation and we will turn the future and we turn all the work that we have before us into some brand of a thing of beauty.”
ALL NEED TO WATCH THIS AND FIGURE OUT THIS ELECTION, IS THE UNITED STATES STILL A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND A NATION OF LAWS.
From Neil Cavuto comes the following video, Coast to Coast illegal alien asking President Barack Obama if she should fear voting, because immigration will come and get her and her family and deport them. The question to a sitting president of the United States is whether a “non-citizen” votes in an election whether they and their family will be rounded up and deported. Obama says no. WTF!!! Obama says because you vote, you are a citizen. WHAT?!? You vote because you are a citizen. Obama just basically said that illegals can vote and nothing will happen to you. Obama’s comments do not even border on criminal, they are criminal.
THIS IS UNREAL. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
