During a speech at President Trump’s rally in West Virginia on Thursday, the state’s Governor, Jim Justice announced he is changing his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.

Justice said, “[I]n the last session, I would tell you that there was some greatness passed, with our roads and so on, but there was way too much pain. Now listen to me and listen really good, we hurt a lot of people. We hurt our vets and our teachers and our disabled and our weak and we walked away from the old. Now I can promise you just this, I came to only get something done. Let me just say this to you as bluntly as I can say it, West Virginia, at the altar, when we had it done, like it or not like it, but the Democrats walked away from me. Now, today I will tell you, with lots of prayers and lots of thinking, today I’ll tell you as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor. So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.”

He added, “Now let me go one step further and say just this, what in the world is wrong us as peoples? Have we not heard enough about the Russians? I mean, to our God in heaven above think about it, the stock market’s at 22,000. And this country has hope. And we’re on our way.”

    And the Democrats will be getting McCain.

      Now, now. If McCain had the honesty to do that, then he couldn’t betray people anymore, which has been a driving force within him ever since Nam.

    One is so enlightened by the splendid intellectual posts, and ripostes, of LeeRoy and Daisy Mae.

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      Much better than the mental vomit of intellectually challenged trolling dicks, like Joseph R. Davis.

      1. Joseph R. Davis says:

        Ah, yes. ANOTHER intellectual gem from LeeRoy. And the infamous TROLL CARD!

    I sure hope he has a back up plan. Trump has done a lot for that state so far, a few hundred coal jobs at best, and purposed cuts in programs to help WV move into the twenty first century. Cuts in retrain money as well as cuts in healthcare. Removing rules to protect their drinking water. He’s safe as long as they don’t look to close at what’s being done to them. Climb on the band wagon but hope no one notices the flat tires.

    This man is talking sense. The writing is on the wall. These LIBERAL DEMORATS are avoiding the truth ,to simple hurt the president. For get the country ,that does not matter to them. May they rot where ever it gets hot.

  • chuck stanford says:

    I hope he true to his word. Not some kind of trick to make people think he is sick and tired of the democrats party.

    Seeing someone like Hillary or Barack having to eat some crow and be more than a little shamed in public would do it for me. I don’t want to wish death on anyone; besides, stretching the punishment out over many years does more good than killing them. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few individuals in this world who need to be eliminated entrely!!!!

      The witch and the monkey have no idea what shame is. Their ability to comprehend only consists of issues regarding money and power.

    A democrat Governor feels the heat and sees the light – becomes a Republican, the 34th GOP Governor out of 50 states. He says, the democrat party abandoned him at the alter when he needed them the most, hurting the people of West Virginia. Seems as if there’s a lot of that going around with democrats. Obama abandoned a whole nation when he said, more or less, if push comes to shove, he’d choose the Muslims over the Christians. And to the American entrepreneurs it was, “You didn’t build that, somebody else did.” Ya gotta love those Marxists who build huge governments to bully their people.

      “Ya gotta love those Marxists who build huge governments to bully their people.”
      They have to do it that way, because like those groups who “play” the knockout “game”, individually, they are wussy cowards.

      1. McFerguson says:

        Yeah, the old “knockout” game – takes a real brave man to clock an 80 year old man from behind!

    This article confirms why Governor Justice switched sides but I already suspected why. W Virginia is a Coal state and President Trump saved it from extinction while Obama and the Democrats tried to destroy W Virginia’s Coal industry. Justice had to switch sides to save the W Virginia’s economy. Americans have grown wise to the parasitical tax & spend Democrat Party that takes care of the illegal invaders & Muslim jihadists but craps on the rest of us.

  • David E Blankinship Sr says:

    Wouldn’t you just love to see more of this? A “Liberal” switching sides; wow bet Obama and Clinton have knots in their stomachs this morning, huh?

    1. CCblogging says:

      I hope it stresses those two creeps to the point of stroking out.

    2. McFerguson says:

      Let’s hope so. For all her criminal actions, Hillary ought to be in Fort Leavenworth subsisting on a diet of bread and water…

        killary and obozo both need to be in Gitmo with their buddies. pelosi too. Okay, add all of the crooked lying liberals for their part in taking America down.

          That would be a big freighter load .

        Air and stale urine.
