America First Chief


Chief Jarome Bell for Virginia's 2nd Congressional District


I’m Jarome Bell. I’m an America-First, Conservative Republican from Virginia Beach, running in Virginia’s 2nd congressional district. Having dedicated my life to a career in the Navy, retired as Chief Petty Officer after 27 years, I’m turning my attention to once again serve this great nation by working to continue to carry the Donald J Trump torch to Make America Great Again in the United States House of Representatives.

I’m running for Congress to defend our republic against the foreign and domestic enemies to our Constitution, to which I swore an oath as a member of our Armed Forces — an oath that does not expire. Join our America First Movement.

Take Action Now for our America First Movement


For America & Virginia First

Congress shouldn’t make one move that doesn’t put America’s interests above the interests of the rest of the world. 

Whether it’s sending our military men and women to fight wars around the globe, or sending foreign aid to terror-friendly nations, Congress has failed to put America first.

It has also failed to address America’s greatest threat of the 21st century: the Communist Chinese Party. While Democrats and RINOs scream about “Russia Russia Russia,” our hostile CCP enemies are making themselves into a world superpower. They also unleashed the China Virus, which has wreaked havoc in the United States. The CCP must pay, and its growing influence must be addressed immediately. 

Congress’s interventionist foreign policy globally has failed the American people. 

I’ll fight every day to make sure the interests of American citizens are always put first. 

We must audit all 50 states from the 2020 election, and find out exactly what happened on Nov. 3, 2020. If we don’t have fair elections, we don’t have a country. 

Free and fair elections are the bedrock of our Republic.

Despite this, we’ve seen many elections tainted by fraud of late — and the Democrats are leading the charge. 

Voting by illegal aliens, ballot harvesting, absentee ballot fraud and outright identify theft. These deliberate acts of fraud undermine Americans’ trust in what should be one of our most trusted institutions. We must put an end to it.

In Congress, I will be a strong supporter of Voter ID laws and encourage and support legislation to protect our elections to make sure no one is able to interfere in our elections. 

It’s long past time to stop the illegal alien invasion at our southern border, end the human and sex trafficking sponsored by Mexican cartels, and stop the endless stream of illegal drugs pouring into our communities and poisoning Americans.

Unlike many Republicans who run and hide when it’s time to fight, I will stand with President Trump in his effort to fund and build the border wall. 

The wall is the number one issue of our time. Accordingly, all options are on the table to get it done, including reallocating funds from cities that openly disobey the law by becoming “Sanctuary Cities” toward wall funding. 

Building the wall on our southern border is one of my top priorities. 

I support a full and immediate 10-year moratorium on ALL immigration.

Legal immigration reform is needed now – Americans need to be first for jobs and education – the H1B, F1 – OPT, and H 4EAD programs need to be suspended – U.S. citizens rather than temporary foreign workers need to be employed for our nation’s safety, security, and economic growth and stability. While we fix this America Last system, we must pause all immigration completely. 

Illegal immigration and refugee resettlement threaten America’s security, and economy — not to mention illegals rob jobs from the working class and younger workers new to the workforce. 

We need an illegal alien crackdown. All illegal aliens should be turned over to ICE for deportation, and every illegal alien arrested should be deported – no questions asked. 

It is a crime to aid or abet illegal aliens. I’ll work to criminalize all Sanctuary city officials.  Needless to say, I oppose all forms of amnesty — no matter what pressure the establishment brings to bear.

I served in the Navy. We understand law and order. 

Violent leftists are targeting law enforcement officers, destroying property and threatening Americans’ safety. 

They have no place in society, and should be apprehended and tried as domestic terrorists.

I will always stand proudly with our law enforcement officers and defend the rule of law.

For decades, the Democrat Party has abused the very communities they claim to represent.

They’ve worked hard to keep minorities and the poor dependent on the government, neglected the needs of blacks and the poor, and have worked to keep them down in order to use them as pawns to protect their own political power. 

These forgotten communities, like in Tidewater’s Democrat Ghettos, have paid dearly for the federal government’s failed policies — whether it’s herding the poor into housing projects, or destroying the nuclear family — it’s time minorities escape the government matrix once and for all. 

I will work to create opportunities to break these chains so ALL Americans can thrive and prosper. 

Gun confiscation won’t happen on my watch.

Restricting the gun rights of law abiding citizens has had a disastrous impact on cities like Chicago, and it won’t work here. Guns save lives. Still, Democrat brass are out to eliminate our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. They’re getting more extreme by the week.

I will defend our Second Amendment rights by fighting to remove unconstitutional restrictions already on the books and opposing all efforts to infringe on our right to bear arms.

Gun Control in the United States is Jim Crow, plain and simple. These laws were called “Black Codes.”

The gun control regulations on the books right now across our nation were passed into law right about the time the slaves were freed — in the early 1870s.

Why? Because they didn’t want armed blacks. Armed Freed men.

After 150 years of struggle, we’ve come a long, long way.

And now here in Virginia we have a Governor who pushes for infanticide for, in the words of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, “the kinds of people we don’t want to have too many of”. MEMO to Democrats — she meant BLACKS.

And this SAME Governor — wears BLACK FACE or a KLAN HOOD. We can’t be sure which.

And this racist governor and his racist Democrat henchmen in the General Assembly have the nerve to come at us blacks pushing gun control and more infanticide.

All Americans have the right to life. And All Americans have the right to protect our lives how we see fit.

We as a FREE PEOPLE have the inalienable right from GOD enshrined in the Constitution to protect ourselves as we see fit.

Gun Control in Virginia by our BlackFace governor won’t just mean eventual enslaving of blacks, but also for whites who don’t bow down to government as well.

Governor Northam — Let me be tell you: we are NOT going to ask y’all for permission.

Education should be taken out of the hands of the federal government and given back to the states — and the parents — where it belongs. Empowering Virginia’s parents who choose to homeschool their children is a top focus. It is paramount that the rights of homeschooling parents and students be protected by both Richmond and D.C.

We must end Common Core immediately, and parents should have the ability to send their children to the school they determine to be best for their child. School choice must be a top priority. We must make access to learning a trade and gaining vocational skills just as readily available to students as algebra or Spanish or other college track coursework. 

President Trump’s historic win in 2016 set off unhinged leftists mobs like Antifa and other communist and fascist thug organizations. Their riots, property destruction and physical violence are putting our homes, families, private property — and even lives — at risk. 

Our economy surged strongly under the leadership of President Trump. Instead of rioting and setting things on fire, these far left domestic terrorists need to get with the program. 

Life begins at conception, period. 

We must protect every life from the moment of conception until natural death. 

In Congress, I will work to defund Planned Parenthood entirely and fight to restrict abortion at every opportunity. 

I will be the voice for the most vulnerable lives among us. 

Tidewater Virginia has been one of the best regions in America for business and job growth, but after decades of liberal policies, we continue to lose thousands of jobs to other states — jobs Virginia desperately needs. 

Big government liberal policies have failed Tidewater. It’s time to get serious about tackling this problem head on.

In Congress, I will oppose the job-killing big government policies that have plagued our state for decades and will fight to lower taxes, reduce the size of government and pass legislation that creates economic opportunities that will allow the citizens of Tidewater to unleash our potential. 

Our military stands in need of a great rebuilding.

The Obama era decimated every branch of our Defense Department. I stand ready to advocate for every Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman, and Guardsman to rebuild our Military to its once legendary status.

This statues of black civil war veterans and statues of white confederate soldiers should be side by side facing each other because that is history.

But our Black history has been whitewashed by communists.

This history is never taught in schools because it doesn’t fit the mainstream’s “North vs. South” narrative.

The young black men of the Civil War escaped slavery and the Democrats’ Black Laws and were able to own guns and fight for their freedom.Confederate and Robert E. Lee statues should not be torn down.None of our shared history should be hidden or replaced, no matter how good or bad it is.No city or state should tear down one group’s statues just because someone’s feelings are hurt.We should, however, build statues in order to tell the complete story.All Americans should love history. Black American history should not be left out, and white American history should not be silenced or destroyed.We are ONE AMERICA, with ALL our history.



Meet Chief Jarome Bell, a fearless patriot and a leader of the America First Movement.

I’m Jarome Bell. I’m an America-First, Conservative Republican from Virginia Beach, running in Virginia’s 2nd congressional district.

Having dedicated my life to a career in the Navy, retired as Chief Petty Officer after 27 years, I’m turning my attention to once again serve this great nation by working to continue to carry the Donald J Trump torch to Make America Great Again in the United States House of Representatives.

I’m running for Congress to defend our republic against the foreign and domestic enemies to our Constitution, to which I swore an oath as a member of our Armed Forces — an oath that does not expire.

It is obvious to me that the Democrat party put black votes on the back of the proverbial bus long ago, and left us behind. They don’t represent us now, and arguably never did.

Similarly — and with the exception of Donald Trump — the establishment wing of the GOP no longer represents middle class working Americans.
Tidewater Virginia needs a new approach — someone who can bridge the gap and build trust, between Americans from all walks of life.

Whether they’re communists, socialists, or violent protesters in the streets, the far-left has infected our government at every level with dangerous, anti-American ideas and policies, and it’s time we put a stop to it.

I served with the FBI until I embarked on a life-changing course with the United States Navy, where I completed seven and a half years of sea duty and flew over 9,000 hours as a Naval Aircrewman circling the globe in support of our nation’s military missions and national security interests.
While in the Navy, I deployed twice on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson under President Ronald Reagan during the Cold War and in past years as a Naval Aircrewman deployed numerous times to various countries in defense of our country abroad.

I have faithfully served our Commanders-in-Chief world-wide on every continent except Antarctica and at times accompanied world dignitaries on diplomatic missions, including once having the privilege and honor of airlifting Dr. Condoleeza Rice to Tel Aviv, Israel for a peace summit.

I retired as a Chief Petty Officer from the United States Navy, where I proudly served and faithfully executed my duties for 27 years under Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

From 1985 until my retirement in 2012, I served in various commands in San Diego, Atlanta, and Norfolk, where my last duty station was on the Admiral’s Staff at Commander Naval Reserve Forces Command in Norfolk.

Since retiring from the Navy, I opened a small business — I own and operate Line6 Recruiting Services, where I help young adults who will soon be graduating from High School obtain College Athletic Scholarships. Before running for Congress, I served as a Certified Department of Justice School Safety Officer for the State of Virginia in the Chesapeake, Virginia public school system, and I coached and mentored young men through the game of football in the Hampton Roads area for 18 years in the Private and Public school systems.

I have three sons, and have been married to my beautiful wife for 25 years. I studied at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where I obtained my Associates and Bachelors of Science Degrees in Professional Aeronautics with a minor in Management.


Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn Strongly Whole-Heartedly Endorses Jarome Bell

Trump's ICE Director Tom Homan

I am endorsing Jarome Bell, former Chief Petty Officer (U.S. Navy – Ret.) for Congress from
Virginia’s second congressional district. After serving as Acting Director of ICE in the Trump
Administration at the Department of Homeland Security, I have continued to watch closely the
progress and direction of our nation. I remain very concerned about our nation’s leadership and
policies.As someone who spent 35 years in law enforcement I recognize the value of Jarome Bell’s years
of service with the FBI followed by his 27 years in the U.S. Navy. I appreciate Chief Bell’s
strong support for the integrity of our nation and its borders and the need to keep our people safe
from international threats. I am appreciative of his support for the men and women who serve
their communities as law enforcement officers who put themselves in danger every day to protect
our people. I live in Virginia and care about the future of this state. I am persuaded that we will
be safer with Chief Bell representing Virginia in the U.S. Congress.

While I have often served in positions without partisanship, it is unfortunately clear that the
current leadership in Congress and in the White House are not pursuing policies that will protect
our nation and its citizens. The make-up of Congress is currently 212 Republicans and 220
Democrats with 3 vacancies. There will be special elections this November in Florida and Ohio.
I can only conclude that Republicans must win at least 11 seats in Congress in order to stop our
nation’s domestic and border law enforcement from continuing in the wrong direction. I am
impressed by Chief Bell, his experience, and abilities. I believe that he can retake the seat in
Virginia Beach which Democrats won in 2018. In 2016, the Republican won the district by
61.3% to 38.5%.

- Tom Hommen, Former ICE Director

Former Undersecretary of Commerce under President Trump has endorsed Jarome Bell for U.S. Congress in Virginia's 2nd congressional district.

Corey Stewart, an international trade attorney by training, served during the Trump administration and reported to Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross at the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Stewart, who won the U.S. Senate nomination for the Republican Party in Virginia in 2018 also nearly won the GOP nomination for Governor in 2017.

Read Corey Stewart’s endorsement of Jarome Bell for U.S. House below:

I’m proud to endorse Jarome Bell, a 27-year Navy Veteran and America First patriot for Congress in Virginia’s 2nd District. Jarome served the American people honorably in the U.S. Navy, and I’m sure he’ll do the same in Washington. He’s already battle-tested, and ready to right the ship in Congress.

Jarome is one of the most vocal champions for the America First movement started by President Donald J. Trump. Jarome has not, and will never waver in the face of the GOP RINOs, Special Interests, and Deep State bad actors who are doing everything in their power to kill the MAGA movement.

If you’re looking for a leader who will fight to restore election integrity, remove CRT from our schools, secure our borders, end violent Communist anarchy in the streets, and battle on behalf of working class conservative patriots, I cannot think of a candidate in Virginia more worthy of your support than Jarome Bell.

U.S. House Rep. Paul Gosar Endorses Jarome Bell

“Jarome Bell is a true America First patriot and we need him in Congress yesterday. I worked with Jarome on border issues. He’s not messing around and he’s ready to deport criminals and seal the border.”  

“Jarome is one of the Republican Party’s best chances at returning honesty to Washington, D.C.” Gosar said. 

“Chief Bell is fighting harder than anyone out there to fully investigate the November 3rd election, to bring awareness to the enemy invasion at the border, to eradicate the anti-white racism invading our schools through CRT, to end the satanic attacks on our Christian faith, and to end medical tyranny, vaccine apartheid, and totalitarian covid controls exploding across our nation. 

“I give Jarome Bell my complete and unreserved endorsement in his run for U.S. House in Virginia’s 2nd district. A vote for a Jarome is a vote for America First.”

- U.S. House Rep. Paul Gosar

Conservative Icon Michelle Malkin

“Jarome Bell is a brave culture warrior who’s joined the fight to take back our nation for our Americans First principles. 

With a fighter like Jarome Bell  in Washington, D.C., Congress may finally be able to secure our open borders, build the wall and begin to deport criminal illegal aliens, and once and for all put a stop to the Millions of illegal aliens taking jobs from working class Americans and suppressing their wages. 

Jarome Bell knows that mass LEGAL immigration has the same damaging effects on our American economy.

No U.S. Representative will prioritize the family more than Jarome will once he’s in D.C.”

- Michelle Malkin


American Patriots can no longer sit on the sideline. All of us must wage the battle to secure this republic for our posterity. The time is NOW.
