Peter Meijer, R-Mich., speaks with the media. / PHOTO: AP ( Mark Pellin , Headline USA ) In a smacking rebuke to political wonks and partisan prognosticators who thought any Republican who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump would find safe sanctuary in contested primaries, Michigan incumbent Rep. Peter Meijer on Tuesday went down in defeat and became the latest of 10 House Republicans who voted for impeachment in 2020 to be shown the door this year.
John Gibbs, a relative unknown before entering the race despite having served in the Trump administration under Housing Secretary Ben Carson , beat Meijer in a race that wasn’t conceded until early Wednesday morning.
Gibbs’ campaign had blistered Meijer for his vote to impeach Trump, along with the ousted representative’s backing of Democrats’ gun grab and spending sprees. Despite being consistently out-fundraised, Gibbs rode a Trump-endorsement across the finish line. Just got a call from President Trump, congratulating me and my team on tonight’s big win!

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
