First, so the liberal lunatic left can not accuse me of “bias”, here is a brief bio from the prospective Senate candidate himself:
John James is a husband, father, combat veteran and businessman. He is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-business conservative who has demonstrated energetic leadership, clarity of vision and a passion for service from the battlefield to the boardroom. John’s lived the American Dream and wants to protect that Dream for future generations.
At 17, John made the decision to serve his country. After graduating from West Point in 2004, he became a Ranger-qualified aviation officer. John went on to serve with distinction in Operation Iraqi Freedom where he earned a Combat Action Badge (CAB) and two Air Medals, among other awards, while logging 753.8 flight hours in theater leading two Apache platoons.
After eight years of service to the nation, he was honorably discharged and returned to Michigan to work in the family business: James Group International. Currently its President, John has led the company from $35 million to $137 million in revenue while creating 100 additional jobs in Michigan and around the country since 2012.
In addition to his Bachelor of Science from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, John earned a Master of Supply Chain Management and Information Systems from Penn State University and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Michigan. He is also a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.
In other words, Michigan Senate candidate John James is a bad ass.
However, even “conservative” media has fallen for the same old tripe and trap as they did in 2016 for this election cycle, as I quote from the article via TownHall.com two days ago titled “MI Sen: Debbie Stabenow Ridicules John James for Ignoring Auto Workers…He Reminds Her He Leads an Auto Supplier” by Courtney O’Brien:
James is capable of defending himself, and has the backing of President Trump. But, he still has a high hill to climb less than a week out from Election Day. Stabenow is holding on to a double-digit lead.
The article itself is hilarious because it points out the arrogance and ignorance of Stabenow not realizing that John James OWNS a company which supplies the auto industry; in fact the very plant she was touring. But sadly, and not an insult directed at Courtney O’Brien, the conservative media has fallen in line with the mainstream #FakeNews failing to realize that a “double digit lead” in the polls is really irrelevant because pollsters have absolutely zero clue as to how to poll Trump supporters and Republicans at large.
Need some proof?
Here is a great example, and hope for Michigan residents wishing to remove the yoke of the Democrat Party Plantation, courtesy of the Detroit Free Press from October 12, 2016:
Oops. That didn’t work out so good for the pollsters and #FakeNews media now, did it? In fact, here is the money quote from that article discussing the polls:
Clinton led Trump 42.2 percent to 30.6 percent in a four-way poll of 600 likely state voters conducted after the second debate Sunday night. It followed last weekend’s GOP crisis over a decade-old recording of Trump making sexually aggressive comments about women.
For the uninformed and those living in a hole the last two years, Trump won Michigan in 2016.
The moral of the story? If a Republican white female candidate had treated a black Democrat candidate the way Stabenow treated John James, the screams of “racism” and “bigot” would be so loud it is not even funny. However since it is a white female liberal elite, racism is acceptable, biased statements the norm, and according to the Democrat Party, James belongs on their plantation, not free to speak his mind.
God Bless you Mr. James. I pray you win.
The title of “Senator” would serve you and the people of Michigan well.
