A virtually open border, with caravans on the way. Immigration enforcement suspended. The XL Pipeline canceled. Drilling permits halted on federal land. One hundred Trump reforms that rolled back extreme environmental rules – gone. 

Transgenders in the armed forces. Biological males in women’s bathrooms, locker rooms and sports. America once again in the grip of the Paris Climate cabal and the compromised World Health Organization. The travel ban on terror-prone nations lifted. An unprecedented sacking of the head of the National Labor Relations Board. Bargaining power restored to federal employee unions. A job-killing $15 national minimum wage on the horizon.

Yet another unwarranted impeachment trial slated for President Trump – even though he left office.   

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Since Joe Biden and Kamala Harris took their oaths of office on Jan. 20, with their “healing” and “unity” message, it’s been one radical action after another.

With Biden/Harris and the Democrat-controlled Congress working fast to overturn all the impressive gains for the American people made during the Trump administration, there’s no time to lose to mount an effective resistance. 

The Left always overreaches, and when it does, it triggers a powerful pushback. This means working right now on Virginia’s gubernatorial election this year and for congressional races in 2022.

How can conservatives bring a winning message not only in Virginia but all over the nation? 

What should we be doing to ensure that the radical Left’s power grab has a short shelf life?

Patti Lyman served on the Credentials Committee to elect a pro-Trump, grassroots Chairman to Virginia’s largest Republican Committee.

Patti Lyman is a born-and-raised native Virginian and lifelong Republican. A committed conservative activist, she joined the pro-life movement in 1991 and soon left her business career for law school to become a pro-life attorney with the American Center for Law & Justice. 

She successfully litigated 1st Amendment, parental rights and pro-life cases in state and federal courts, assisted victims of China’s forced abortion policy, and served on the board of America’s first national network of black pro-life groups.

After 9/11, Patti entered immigration law to specialize in asylum for persecuted Christians escaping Islamic countries. Convinced that illegal immigration will result in conservative values and fundamental rights being permanently outvoted, Patti speaks frequently to Republican groups about the importance of supporting President Trump’s immigration policies. 

She strongly advocated for President Trump in 2016, and was a surrogate speaker in Virginia’s 2017/2018 gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races.

Patti holds a B.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia, an MBA in Finance from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and a Juris Doctor from Regent University School of Law. She is admitted to the bars of the Virginia Supreme Court and federal courts from U.S. District Court up to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Patti and her husband of 30 years, Frank, live in Fairfax with their multiple cats and are blessed to enjoy their many godchildren, official and otherwise.
