John Nathan Tabor (born August 29, 1973) is an American Businessman and nonfiction author.

Career[edit]

In May 1999, Tabor joined Revival Soy, a company owned by his family as joint owner and Vice President of Sales and Marketing. In 2003, Revival Soy was recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine[1] as the fourth fastest-growing company in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina with $11 million in sales and 80 employees.[2]

2004 also marked Tabor's first unsuccessful foray into politics: his campaign for North Carolina's fifth district seat in Congress. Early on in the campaign, Tabor secured the support of notable members of the conservative political establishment such as Dick Armey, Steve Moore, Ed Meese, and Art Laffer. in addition to courting key figures of the Religious Right such as Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. After participating in the most expensive primary race in the country,[3] and raising $750,000 in campaign contributions, he placed a distant 5th in the primary which was eventually won by Virginia Foxx. Foxx went on to win the general election and now serves as the 5th district's representative in the United States Congress.

In 2006, Tabor launched his campaign for North Carolina's state Senate.[4] The Republican primary in the 31st district developed into a three-way race between Tabor, Pete Brunstetter and Gloria Whisenhunt, then chair of the Forsyth County Commissioners. Tabor came second, with 3,176 votes compared to Brunstetter's 4,432 and Wisenhunt's 2,358.[5]

In January 2004 Tabor sold his interest in Revival Soy to his brother Aaron. In August 2006 Tabor opened a buy-here, pay here used car dealership, Country Auto Sales,[6] in Winston-Salem, N.C. Tabor described the business as a niche player that offers cars to people on a budget.[7]

In 2012, Tabor attempted to file for Congress again, this time in the 6th district but was ruled to have missed the noon deadline.[8] His appeal to the State Board of Elections was denied and Tabor was not listed on the ballot.[9]

Other financial ventures Tabor is involved in include at least nine apartment complexes obtained between 2007 and mid-2014, one complex was the 67-unit Apple Creek Apartment Complex[10] in May 2011.[11]

In 2013, Tabor unsuccessfully ran for Kernersville board of Aldermen. He finished 6th in the campaign for the five open seats.[12]


Author[edit]

On October 31, 2006, Thomas Nelson published The Beast on the East River (ISBN 1-59555-053-4) in which Tabor argues that the United Nations is in the process of undermining the sovereignty of the United States. Unlike many writers and pundits across the political spectrum, Tabor is not interested in UN reform or restructuring. He contends that there are three fatal flaws that make the UN unfit for salvaging: it is ineffective, it is corrupt, and it is opposed to the principles of sovereignty and democracy.[13]

Tabor continues to write, publishing a weekly column which is carried on his website as well as Human Events and Townhall.[14][15] Currently, TheConservativeVoice.com is one of the largest right-wing blogs in existence.[16] In 2007, the blog Intellectual Conservative has ranked TheConservativeVoice.com as the 17th most-visited conservative site on the internet.[17]

Political consulting[edit]

Nathan Tabor consulted with North Carolina Senator Fred Smith, who lost the primary for governor in 2008. In the past, Nathan has worked as the director of internet outreach for Congressman Duncan Hunter's presidential campaign.[18][19][20]

Additionally, Tabor has worked for Jim Oberweis in his campaign for governor of Illinois in 2006, and Jeff Crank, who ran for Congress in Colorado.[citation needed]

In March 2009, Tabor was elected Chairman of the Forsyth County Republican Party and resigned in 2012. In three years the party raised over $130,000 by hosting fundraisers with Gov. Mike Huckabee, Congressman Joe Wilson and Grover Norquist.
