AFP Plays a Role
in Dramatic Ouster
of Rep. Eric Cantor
By Michael Collins
.Information first developed and brought to national attention by AMERICAN FREE PRESS played a critical role in the effort by grassroots voters in orchestrating the primary election defeat on June 10 of House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) in a surprise upset the national media describes as “shocking.”
AFP articles exposing Cantor’s big money connections — published on Nov. 14, 2010, Nov. 29, 2010 and Nov. 4, 2011 and later widely picked up on the Internet — have been widely distributed throughout his Richmond-area district by grassroots activists over the past several years and during the recent campaign. This contributed to the perception, among voters, that Cantor’s focus — the interests of big money contributors — was out of touch with the needs of his constituents.
A Talmud-centered Orthodox practitioner ubiquitously described in almost worshipful terms by the media as “the only Republican Jew in Congress,” and as “the most senior Jewish official in government,” Cantor was repudiated by voters who, by a wide margin, chose David Brat, an economics professor from Randolph-Macon College.
Although Brat only had $200,000 in the bank — whereas Cantor’s campaign coffers held some $5 million, nearly a million of which was spent by Cantor in television advertising and direct-mail hit pieces attacking Brat — Brat reminded voters that Cantor was making noises sympathetic to amnesty for illegal aliens.
Although the major media keeps mentioning the tea party as the force behind Cantor’s defeat, the truth is that many in the tea party actually supported Cantor because they — like Cantor — are strong supporters of Israel.
In fact, Cantor’s basic underlying problem was the fact Cantor was especially crippled by the longstanding feeling of voters that Cantor was not doing enough for those in his home district and was instead focused on the concerns of big money special interests.
Reporting that Cantor is “one of the very few members of Congress who has some of the richest and most powerful people in the world bankrolling his political endeavors,” AFP noted that “the fact that billionaires in the global financial plutocracy — all intimately tied to the London-based Rothschild family — are underwriting Cantor’s career is a point that cannot be taken lightly.”
