Jeb Bush and the GOP Donor Problem
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 4/24/2014 11:26:19 AM

Donald Trump looked out over the audience of New Hampshire conservative activists and mentioned the name “Jeb Bush.” On April 12, the Hill reported the reaction this way: “You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” he said, with quiet boos and angry murmurs erupting from the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name. “And he was talking about people that come into this country illegally, they do it for love,” he continued, with the boos growing louder. Trump added, to laughter from the crowd: “And I said, say it again I didn’t get — that’s one I’ve never heard before … I understand what he’s saying, but, you know, it’s out there.”

Humbly suggest that this is a must read.

fta: Jeb Bush’s problem isn’t really that his last name is Bush. The problem is that the Bush name has become synonymous with the GOP Establishment and a narrow, rigid adherence to moderation. The problem in fact took root in the long-ago and faraway of the Bush 41 presidency, when the decision was made to replace conservatism — the conservatism that elected Ronald Reagan twice in a landslide and carried his vice president to yet another landslide as “Reagan’s heir” — with the already losing idea of moderation.

As Paul Kengor has vividly illustrated in his new book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative, “Reagan continually explained to his fellow citizens….how the principles of conservatism were essential to a successful democratic republic.” This approach was quite publicly rejected by the new President Bush

A thief stealing to better his family is OK - for Jeb Bush. Sneaking into this country and staying here illegally is a crime. The person MUST be PENALIZED, not rewarded. The ´path to citizenship´ MUST start back in your home country.

Bob Dole is lying weasel who was my Senator for decades. When he says "I had a pretty conservative record when I was in the Senate" - he is lying again. He is personally responsible for forcing the requirement for gun background checks and ADDED HIMSELF the background checks on rifles and shotguns when the gun control lobby had not asked for it They had almost abandoned this for handguns - and Dole pushed through the checks for all guns. He was willing to sell conservative principles down the river when we needed a strong supporter.

Politicians that pretend to be conservative because their voters are, but who are actually far more liberal, will vote liberal in the crunch - just when you need them to stand strong, they cave in. Both Bush and Christie would do this to us.

I have voted for the "lesser of two evils" in the past, but if either Bush or Christie are nominated, I promise to NOT vote for them, regardless of the consequences. Unless I believe that the next Republican nominee has deeply rooted conservative principles, he will NOT get my vote.

Until the average voter internalizes the reality that conservative republican is an absurd contradiction in labeling, about as egregious as Catholic Muslim; we won´t get real change in DC. The relationship between these politicians and the GOP, is a marriage of convenience among unprincipled frauds and hustlers w/a secular progressive left party which stands for little more that a few paltry economic nostrums. Both are in the politics racket to enhance their bottom line. Period.

Jeb Bush is a real nice guy who can pretend to be conservative. The base wants a real conservative who can pretend to be a nice guy. The establishment at some point had better recognize that fact or they´ll lose the base and so the election. The Republicans will be doomed to be loyal opposition . . . a position with which I fear they`re getting too comfortable.

GOP Establishment: Congress Should Give
"Blank Check" to Address Border Crisis
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 7/12/2014 6:04:01 PM     Post Reply
While liberal activists keep pushing Democrats to make more concessions regarding the flood of illegal immigrant children across the border, GOP consultants in D.C. are suggesting that Republicans roll over and approve President Barack Obama´s request for $3.7 billion without any concessions. And they are doing so to liberal outlets like the Huffington Post. Since only $400 million of those funds would actually go to strengthen border security, Republicans have been wary of giving the Obama administration a "blank check" without getting some concessions, like having National Guard troops on the border or changing a 2008 law that

Dems Trounce House GOP
in Grass-Roots Donations

The DCCC, the campaign arm for Rep. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, has raised $22 million more than the House GOP for the fall elections. That result is surprising enough, as Democrats´ minority status gives them little political leverage in the House. More surprising, though, is that Democrats have raised almost three times as much money, $46 million v. $17 million, as Republicans from small-dollar grass roots donors. The political landscape and recent polling would suggest the opposite situation.

Thad Cochran Replaces Campaign Manager
Amid Ugly Post-Primary Battle

Sen. Thad Cochran´s campaign manager, Kirk Sims, has been replaced by his state director Brad Davis, according to a GOP source close to the campaign. The source, who has first-hand knowledge of the information from speaking to campaign officials, also said the campaign has retained the legal firm Butler Snow for unknown reasons. Sims, a former chief of staff to Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, leaves his campaign manager post having won a bitter primary fight against odds but also amid allegations of vote-buying and other improprieties that have engulfed the election´s outcome in acrimony.

Texas Rep. Lamar Smith: Not "a Single

Congress should not provide the Obama administration with any additional funding until it uses current resources to secure the border and confront illegal immigration, according to Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith. “This isn’t a funding problem, it’s an enforcement problem. Rather than enforce our nation’s immigration laws, the President has chosen to ignore them. Instead, he continues to call for massive amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants,” Smith said. Tuesday, President Obama submitted his emergency funding request to Congress – seeking $3.7 billion to deal with the ongoing influx of unaccompanied children and family units illegally entering the United States.

Poll: Obama "Worst President"
Since World War II

A terrible polling season just got humiliating for President Obama. On top of collapsing personal and job approval numbers, and a stunning loss in public confidence, a new Quinnipiac poll shows that the American people now see a president who rode into office on a wave of hope and change as the worst president since World War II. Adding insult to injury, in hindsight, only 38% of voters believe Obama is doing a better job than his 2012 Republican rival Mitt Romney would have. A plurality of 45% believe Romney would be doing a better job than Obama. When asked who the

This is not the first time the corrupt national GOP power structure and the Mississippi Republican Party have betrayed conservatism. By now, the deeply questionable practices of the Thad Cochran campaign and his apparatchiks in Mississippi are known to all. Mysterious robo-calls, unaccounted for mailings, street money, all designed to not just to defeat but ruin Chris McDaniel, because he had the temerity to take on the Establishment. The anti-conservative forces inside the GOP even engaged and paid Democratic consultants to help destroy the campaign of a fellow Republican.

Egos And Infighting: The GOP´s
Biggest Opponent In November
Townhall, by Derek Hunter    Original Article

Stars are aligning for a big Republican victory this November – solidifying and expanding the GOP’s majority in the House and perhaps gaining one in the Senate. This is a best-case scenario, and any majority in the Senate would be a slim one. But the importance of removing Harry Reid as majority leader cannot be overstated. That’s why Democrats will pull every dirty trick in their deep bag to hold the Senate, and sadly many Republicans will help them in that quest. President Obama will have two years left to wreak havoc on the country after the next election, but he can only throw stones into the river of time, not permanently change its

Last Tuesday in Mississippi, incumbent Republican Sen. Thad Cochran beat his challenger, State Sen. Chris McDaniel, in a Republican runoff. There is no dispute that Cochran won by bringing thousands of Democrats into the Republican runoff to support him. Cochran´s victory, if left unaddressed by conservatives, will set a dangerous precedent within Republican primaries. Republican PACs, national Republican political operatives and the Republican establishment collaborated to accuse conservative and tea party activists of racism. These Republicans painted their very base as the second coming on the KKK and Hitler.

Republican Party elders have learned well from their political idol, Barack H. Obama. After observing the total lawlessness of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder over the past five and half years, as both men ignored all checks and balances without consequence, ruling Republican elites have seen fit to adopted their strategy of overt lawlessness. Unburdened from ethics, state election laws, or voter accountability, national GOP party masters adopted and replicated Obama and Holder’s “best practices” in the deep red state of Mississippi.

Rupert Murdock: Amnesty, Unlimited
High-Tech Visas "Can´t Wait"

American workers are struggling to find jobs and illegal immigrants flooding across the border are straining the country´s resources, but Rupert Murdoch believes amnesty legislation "can´t wait." A day after dining with President Barack Obama´s top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Murdoch, the Chairman of the group that owns Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, pushed for amnesty and an unlimited number of high-tech guest-worker visas in a Wednesday op-ed in the Journal. Murdoch said his "heart sank" when he learned that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted last week in a primary election that was widely viewed as a referendum

The Internal Revenue Service is about to get slapped with a harsh payback for messing around with conservative groups, blowing wads of tax dollars on employee conferences and helping implement Obamacare.The House Appropriations Committee is set to OK an IRS budget of $10.9 billion, $1.5 billion under President Obama´s request for fiscal year 2015, reducing the agency´s budget to 2008 levels. The goal is to keep the tax agency focused on its “core duties,” and eliminate efforts to judge the political activities of tax-exempt groups and brake its implementation of Obamacare.

The only reason liberalism survives is because there´s usually a good bit of lag between when a policy is being implemented and the time when the American people get to see the results. If Americans could somehow magically see what would happen in a decade or two after a liberal policy has passed, there would be no liberals left. Instead, back in the real world, liberals create or exacerbate disasters with their policies, blame everyone other than themselves, and then demand more government action to fix the problem they screwed up in the first place. Barack Obama is a perfect example

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY. One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said.

The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children. We should be protecting children, not creating fear of them." Yesterday,

A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their
