As I wrote to you before, I am a candidate for chairman of the Botetourt County Republican Committee, and I ask for your vote at the Botetourt GOP Mass Meeting Tuesday night, March 18, at Lord Botetourt High School in Daleville.

Like you, I’m disappointed with many Republicans, both on the local and national level.  As a professor of American history, I understand our founding principles and the need for Americans to be involved in our government at all levels (which is why they called it “self-government”).  And I subscribe to the old saying that “all politics is local,” meaning our political work begins here at home.

We all know that people tend to settle for the status quo, allowing things to continue as they always have.  But I’ve never bought into that.  I don’t settle.  When our government and culture are as dysfunctional as they are today, I can’t settle.  I need to work for change.

You may have seen my recent emails.  I’ve been one of the voices calling for the impeachment and disbarment of Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring.   Only two weeks after taking the oath of office Herring turned against Virginians and began working to undo a critical amendment to our state constitution.  If those of us who are active in that effort have our way, over one million Virginians will demand his impeachment.  And even if we fail to impeach him, we’ll have their attention.  And liberals are going to understand that we the people are awake and ready to stand against them in any way we can.

I ask for your vote at the Mass Meeting on February 18th to help me become the chairman of the Botetourt County Republican Committee.  I believe that as county chairman I can be more effective in building our party and strengthening our influence in Virginia.  2014 is a critical election year, and we must develop a ground game that supports conservative Republican candidates.

I’ve enclosed a copy of the Mass Meeting Delegate Candidacy form (you must register as a delegate to vote).  Please check the top line of the form and provide the information on the bottom, including your signature.  Bring it with you to the meeting along with two forms of ID to make your registration go more smoothly.  The meeting begins at 7:00 PM, but you must arrive before 7:00 to register.  Come early!

If you have questions, please call me at (540) 765-8703.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Help Impeach Attorney General Mark Herring Mon, 17 Mar 2014 20:13:22 +0000 Watch Dog We need your help to remove Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring from office.  It’s as easy as filling out a short form and getting your family and friends to do the same!
I’m sure you’re aware that our newly-elected Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring announced two weeks into his term that he would not defend the amendment to Virginia’s constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.  This amendment was overwhelmingly approved by Virginia voters in 2006, yet AG Herring became an advocate for those challenging the law, working against one of the laws he swore an oath to defend.The time has come to hold Attorney General Mark Herring accountable for his irresponsible actions.  The reasons for doing so are clear:

First, he preemptively and arrogantly usurped the role and authority of the court in declaring the Virginia marriage law, itself embedded in Virginia’s Constitution, to be “unconstitutional”.

Second, he betrayed his sworn duty to uphold and defend the laws of Virginia and also to represent us as our elected advocate by actively urging a federal judge to overturn this same law that had been overwhelmingly approved by the General Assembly and by over 1.3 million Virginia voters.

Third, in so doing, he undermined respect for the considered wisdom of the Virginia legislature, for the democratic process, and for the rule of law that shields a free, self-governing people from tyranny. 

Fourth, by failing to perform his sworn duty, he also contributed to further weakening the protections that surround the institution of marriage and the family as the basic building block of civilization and the very heart of the law he was sworn to uphold and defend. 

As former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore said, “Under Virginia law, the Attorney General has an obligation to defend the Constitution of Virginia. He is also required to represent Virginia when the state’s position is in conflict with the federal government. Attorney General Herring’s action is in violation of both of those rules.”

For this reason groups have formed to take two separate courses of action against AG Herring.  We are working to impeach and disbar him, and we the people can accomplish both these tasks.  I ask that you join us in this effort to ensure that in the future our elected representatives follow the law.  Even more important, we must defend and preserve the sacred institution of marriage.

The effort to impeach Mr. Herring is being overseen by the Virginia Christian Alliance (VCA).  You can access the petition for impeachment by clicking here (or by pasting into your browser):

I ask that you print the form, make as many copies as you feel you can get signed, and return the completed forms to VCA as soon as possible.  The instructions and mailing information are on the form.

Please work quickly.  My goal is to have over one million Virginians sign these forms.  We must make our Delegates understand that we’re tired of having elected representatives deny the will of the people.
If you are also interested in filing for Herring’s disbarment, complete instructions are available on the Virginia Christian Alliance website at  
Thank you for your help in restoring Virginia to the rule of law!  Virginians have led the way since the founding of this great republic, and Virginians must take the lead now.
God bless you,
Jim Ludington

Mark Herring, Disbarment and Impeachment Ahead Mon, 17 Mar 2014 20:06:39 +0000 Watch Dog Impeachment Despite the fact that some legislators are tipping their hats at the opposition and boldly proclaiming in the newspaper that they are not going down the road of impeachment for Herring, this train is still rolling in that direction if you want to come along.

After researching Obama Crimes for over year and watching a spineless Congress do nothing about it for the last five years, I refuse to settle for less than Impeachment of Herring. Obamanites have come to Virginia and if Herring gets away with this, the lawlessness of Washington will permeate the Commonwealth.

This is as serious as it’s ever been in our lifetime and it takes more than the usual :blah” from elected officials to solve what we are facing.

I am so reminded of how God gave Gideon only 300 soldiers. Yet over 120,000 were defeated by the power of God through Gideo’s team. Did you know all we need is 27 votes in the Senate to impeach Mark Herring?

There are 22 Senators still in office who voted for the Marriage Amendment in 2006. I would imagine that the black clergy who do not support men marrying men and women marrying women might have some influence on some of those 22 Senators.

Brothers and sisters, we have to get our eyes off of legislators and onto the Living God who gives the victory and believe.

Attached you will find a resolution calling for the Impeachment of Mark Herring.

There are 950 likes on the Facebook page for Impeaching Herring. Let’s go with the cry of the people. This can be done.

Disbarment By now, some of you have received your letter from the Virginia State Bar acknowledging your complaint and naming the lawyer who will be contacting us next.

If you have not filed your complain,please do so and get five people you know to do the same. Instructions for filling out the complaint are on the disbarment page of as well as a link to the required form.

To The Common Core Curriculum – NUTS – From The American People Sun, 16 Mar 2014 03:10:38 +0000 Watch Dog

Many Americans are homeschooling their children today, and there’s a family from Germany that was homeschooling their kids but left and came to America for asylum because of the persecution from their government. Germany wants to use an old Nazi Law to have their children removed from their parents if they do not comply.

President Obama is no help, he does not want this German family here but only to send them back to Germany to face the consequences. This family is literally fighting for the lives of their children.

Think about it. Pres Obama and Common Core has no tolerance for homeschooling. What future do you see for the American family; more homeschooling or more government control of your children, and you?

He just couldn’t keep his hands out of this pie – Common Core was doomed from the start for so many reasons, then President Obama handed a presidential anvil to the National Governors’ Association rather than a needed parachute.  Now the national educational establishment including Secretary Arne Duncan is heading for the floor of the proverbial canyon just like Wile E. Coyote – meep, meep.  The supporters of the Common Core State Standards Initiative seem truly amazed by the blow-back they are receiving from parents, teachers, free-thinking liberals, conservatives and even libertarians who see their worst fears materializing with the sharing of data bases.  It looks like these pseudo-elites have met their match – they have been delivered a message made famous by U.S. Army Brigadier General Anthony C. McAuliffe at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge in late 1944: To the German Commander, as to our surrender, NUTS! – The American Commander.  So 70 years later:

To the Secretary of Education (Arne Duncan) as to the Common Core


From the American People

Indeed, this “roll out” is proving to be the perfect storm:

  1. The Common Core is explicitly illegal: As George Will enunciated recently the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) said “nothing in this act” shall authorize any federal official to “mandate, direct, or control” schools’ curriculums.  Five years later the General Education Provisions Act again stated that “no provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any” federal agency or official “to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction” or selection of “instructional materials by any” school system.  Rarely have federal statutes been so precise in their language or intent.  Even President Carter’s signature program, the federal Department of Education forbad itself from exercising “any direction, supervision, or control over the “curriculum” or “program of instruction” of any school system.  If that were not enough firepower to stop Common Core in its tracks, James Madison’s 10th amendment to the federal constitution states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
  2. The illegality has been complemented by a presidential bribery scheme.  States have been given millions of dollars to sign up for Common Core under the guise of the education reform package, “Race to the Top” – or the states were bought off by having the “No Child Left Behind” mandates waived with participation in Common Core.  45 states tripped over themselves to get the federal funds – a shameful spectacle.
  3. As corrupt as the legislative history has been, the actual education product known as Common Core has been an unmitigated disaster – the structural design tries to make 5 and 6 year old children conceptualize math and English problems before their brains are ready for such tasks.  This is a physiological impossibility.  Of course, all of this of comes at the expense of content.  It’s always nice to have a child with a solid grasp of fundamental knowledge who then is asked to process high-order thinking skills when he’s ready.  Indeed, the Common Core math curriculum is now being call the NEW New Math from the 1960s.
  4. Our nation’s teachers are not the problem Secretary Duncan – the overwhelming majority of them are competent and inspirational.  They should have been consulted before this behemoth of a project started rolling towards the cliff – the billionaire couple of Bill and Melinda Gates have a lot of money but not much horse sense.  Even Jeb Bush has proven himself a neophyte on education issues of this magnitude.

So the question now becomes “Do we really want to trust the architect and manager of Obamacare with the education of American’s most precious treasure, her children?”  Thomas Jefferson summed up the sheer terror of federal misadventures in 1820 when he was asked to comment on the Missouri Compromise vis-à-vis slavery: “but this momentous question (of slavery), like a fire bell in the night, awakened and filled me with terror. I considered it at once as the (death) knell of the Union. It is hushed indeed for the moment. But this is a reprieve only, not a final sentence” – that would come 41 years later in the form of the Civil War.

Common Core is a “clear and present danger” to the education of…

Shak Hill - Reject Dirty Politics
My friends, I am concerned for our party. Screen Shot 2014-03-15 at 8.35.18 PMRecent weeks have seen actions by the establishment Republicans I did not think I would see again in my lifetime. This week, establishment Republicans slated in Virginia Beach, denying hundreds of duly filed delegates the right to vote. Also this week, Charlotte County saw its chair literally rip up 20 pre-file forms that were hand-delivered to him, because he was afraid of those conservatives being able to vote. We are hearing rumors now of slating plans being hatched by the establishment in Henrico, City of Richmond, City of Portsmouth, and other places. All to prevent conservatives from exercising their constitutional right to vote. This is outrageous! What is this, Soviet Russia? And it is these very establishment hacks that cry foul that the convention excludes voters, who are doing their very own exclusion. Well, which way is it going to be? Hopefully not politics as usual! These actions have no place in 21st century Virginia. Make no mistake, fellow conservatives: every establishment candidate that gets elected strengthens their efforts to exclude conservatives. Every one, including in this US Senate race. But I am a conservative - principle above party - and I reject these efforts to exclude conservatives from exercising their right to vote! I call on all the candidates for U.S. Senate to reject these underhanded exclusionary tactics, and I call on Pat Mullins and the State Central Committee to invalidate these efforts. Excluding conservatives is NOT how you grow a party. How do you expect to win without those committed volunteers who knock doors? How do we expect to reach young people without libertarians? How do we mobilize churchgoing values voters without social conservatives? How do we win without the energy of the TEA Party? We don’t win without conservatives, folks. Flat-out. That’s why I need your help today. I am battling one of those “DC knows best” establishment Republicans for the nomination for US Senate. If I win the nomination, I will make sure our party stays true to our conservative principles, using them to expand the base of our party and showing Virginia what real conservative leadership can do. Your donation of $50, $25, or even $10 today takes a stand against slating and other means the establishment is using to exclude conservatives. This is a fight for the soul of our party, friends. I suspect you know by now, I will be a leading voice in that fight- all the way. For God and Country, Shak Hill]]> 0

Robert Hurt - Stabbing Friends In The Back
Upon opening the mailbox today I found a letter from Congressman Robert Hurt. I thought, what's this another fundraising letter? Or maybe another letter telling us how we "must stop obamacare, blah, blah, blah". Nope. It was a support letter from a traitor for a jerk. A man who has no track record for grassroots activism. And someone who can't even find supporters to stand for him at mass meetings. A man who reports say at his own recent meeting threw out, Illegally I believe, properly turned in pre-file forms for his unit in Charlotte, County. But I digress. The purpose of this post is to expose the back stabbing nature of Robert Hurt. A man who is using his congressional campaign funds and staff to make sure "his guy" wins the 5th district chairmanship. Pathetic. Because the reality is that he is running against the guy who actually did get him elected. Note this gem of a statement in the letter: At the end of the day, of course, those successes ultimately were driven by your hard work at the grassroots level. It was your grassroots work that won one of the most heavily contested Congressional races in 2010 - a huge victory that led to the toppling of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Likewise, it was your grassroots work that won hard fought challenges in the Fifth District that toppled long-time democrat standard-bearers and gave Republicans a majority in the Virginia Senate. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
His words say one thing. His actions and his endorsement of Jon Berkley say another. We've long known that Robert Hurt was an establishment stooge. But he was at least working on an understanding of who put him in office. HINT: It wasn't the establishment! Men like the person he is betraying, Mark Lloyd are the ones who ran the ground campaign that secured his victory. He was the one working with tea party radicals like me to put signs all over the district. He was the one who got many people off the ledge who were going to run third party candidates. The very people Hurt is now running against are the ones who got him in office. With signs like this: PerrielloStealing After Tea Party people got Tom Perriello on camera saying this a poster was made. The establishment freaked out. "you can't do that" and "that's not propper" and we ignored them.  It was a close race and WE won.  Mark Lloyd Founded the Lynchburg Tea Party, Was a chairman of the Virginia Tea Party Patriots. Has been working grassroots campaigns for over 4 years. He knows how to win and who to talk to to make success happen. It wasn't men like Jon Berkley who were rallying the un-predictable radicals in the tea party. It was Mark Lloyd. And how does Robert Hurt repay his supporters? By stabbing them in the back!!!
 our new chair must be committed to doing the hard work necessary to win elections by supporting our outstanding local units in getting the doors knocked and phone calls made....
Know who he is talking about there? Yep Mark Lloyd. I wonder if he knows this. It is likely if he had sat and done nothing that he could have seen his guy Jon Berkley win. This largely due to the poor brand image of the Republican Party But now he has whacked the hornets nest. He thinks he has fired a full volley broadside against the tea party. "i'll sink this ship" he and his friends say. But he doesn't understand that we are turning the ship towards him and calling for ramming speed. He clearly doesn't know the Tea Party. We are willing to sink both ships, and if we are going down we will make sure to take you with us. Robert Hurt deserves not ONE MORE DIME of your money. He is using it,  not to further his remaining in office, but instead to run a campaign for Jon Berkley's chairmanship in the 5th. His staff is drafting drivel like I received. they are by all accounts, standing for Jon Berkley at mass meetings. And likely doing lots more. While this is not illegal it's surely unethical. Contrast that to Mark Lloyd who actually has a grass roots campaign of friends and supporters standing for him. This kind of betrayal politics is happening all across Virginia. Guys like Robert Hurt have nothing that defines them. And so when the wind blows from the establishment they are blown hither an yon. In this instance the wind is blowing from the wretched farts that are emanating from Eric Cantors office. And what a wretched stench it is. So Mr Hurt, enjoy your time in office. And hope the Democrats don't run an effective candidate against you. Because by alienating the people who put you in office you will need a cold day in hell before people like myself get behind you. You may get enough of us to "vote the lesser of two evils". But we won't make calls. Won't knock on doors. won't tell our know all that "grass roots" stuff you were saying we needed.]]> 0
