Collapse! Eric Cantor’s Fall – Celebrating The Fall of the ‘House of RINO’

Written by Kevin Fobbs on June 12, 2014

“And the walls came tumbling down,” is a fitting beginning of the end of the House of RINO, which Eric Cantor was the Majority Leader of. You had to have felt the shattering of political promises being demolished in the mounting rubble that was the Capitol Hill Republican RINO hierarchy. With the astonishing win by Tea Party Express and Conservative Campaign Committee  choice Dave Brat, Conservative Americans have reason to take to the political arena in forces more dynamic than in landslide year 2010.

In the history of the nation never had a House Majority Leader ever suffered such a stunning defeat or actually a defeat period than what sent Republican leader Eric Cantor packing. With is embarrassing defeat Eric Cantor plans to step down as from his post as House majority leader at the end of July, according to Fox News.

Was his defeat based upon his and House Speaker John Boehner’s support for an on again, off again, then on again illegal immigration deal with the Obama administration? It may have been, but the resentment by conservatives in his district and in America to RINO political waffling by Capitol Hill House leadership was much deeper than that.

It actually has its most recent historical base in how President Ronald Reagan approached leadership and being the caretaker of the nation’s conservative principles and values that the founding fathers set firmly in place in the U.S. Constitution. Cantor and all the other RINO-like followers in leadership both in Washington as well as the states had to feel as if they were remarkably bullet-proof from political harm.

When that type of arrogance outstrips the feelings, the needs, and the principles of the heartland Americans then it is destined, as Cantor found out on Tuesday evening, to crumble like the walls of Jericho. The Cantor RINO political machine forgot one essential ingredient that is worth reminding others like him of, “Tyranny in the form of political convenience is neither just nor is it safe for America’s present or for its future.”

The Conservative Campaign Committee  and Tea Party Express that worked tirelessly to help to make Brat’s stunning election victory possible understands the message and purpose of Ronald Reagan’s commitment to every child, parent, person of faith, and American citizen. Political compromise, whether it is on illegal immigration, the national debt or allowing Obama to skate free for far too long on Benghazi, IRS Tea Party targeting, a failed economy and many other impeachable offenses, is detestable and unacceptable.

It actually shown quite vibrantly by Melanie Tipton, a conservative patriot who has never stopped believing in the American Dream or in the vision that Ronald Reagan created and helped bring forth with is amazing Reaganomics ideals.

Tipton, an award winning sportscaster and businesswoman, embraces the idea like Ronald Reagan that the best days of the nation are not behind us but ahead. That is why she has taken up the gauntlet of President Reagan’s vision of free markets and capitalism that spurred a generation of economic growth and created a documentary called Melanie’s Journey Through Chattanoogaville, which forecasts a new and reinvigorated America that does not falter nor does it flee in terror from its noble destiny as RINOs like Cantor have.

Tipton’s documentary, which is sponsored by The Conservative Campaign Committee / 1 Million People to Defeat Barack Obama is the direct opposite of liberal Michael Moore’s propaganda film war on Capitalism. Her documentary promo which has gone viral on You Tube, like the documentary, promotes the greatness of America. She shows it as seen through the eyes of regular Americans and small business owners who support capitalism and its immeasurable virtues. RINOs have worked to put America to sleep and Tipton and other conservatives like the Conservative Campaign Committee and the Tea party Express work endlessly to wake up America.

This wake-up call occurred this week with the fall of the House of RINO much like the fall of the Roman Empire. The House of RINOs demise was and is historically foreseeable and predictable.

America’s Heartland now has another opportunity to stand alongside conservative patriots like the Conservative Campaign Committee  and the Tea Party Express and send another RINO, glad-handing leader to forced retirement.

Conservative Republican Chris McDaniel is in a tight runoff race against U.S. Senator Thad Cochran who is a failed incumbent. Not only is this Tea Party conservative candidate’s race winnable, according to the latest polls, McDaniel has a 3% and growing lead over Cochran. Even though Brat was able to beat Cantor who had a political war chest of $5 million to Brat’s meager $100,000-plus amount, RINO and liberal leaning special interests will come out with the big financial guns to display shock and awe.

It means that supporting the efforts of the Conservative Campaign Committee and the Tea Party Express’ to continue to make political patriotic history is crucial.

Each step on the political path is a victory that you, your children and conservatives will be able to say with pride in 2014: “We brought down the House of RINO!”
