Bush 3? Conservatives will take a pass on dynasty

December 17, 2014

To no one’s surprise, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced on Tuesday he would “actively explore” a 2016 run for the White House.

We’ve written about him before. This post, “Another Bush? Thanks, Jeb, but we’ve had enough,” is from March 2013, when he was promoting his soft-on-illegal-immigration book, written to keep him relevant after leaving office.  It’s worth reviewing —- the post, not the book —- the hardcover of which can now be purchased  for less than a buck on Amazon, exactly what it’s worth.

Nothing has changed except Jeb’s lost 15 lbs, attempting to shape up before entering the fray. Just in time to welcome in the New Year, he’s promising to send out 250,000 email releases from his time as governor and gearing up to release an eBook on his governing style to strut his digital hipness.

The eBook and emails could well serve as a calculated distraction from Bush’s financesincluding overseas investments and his work for venture capital firms, which have recently come under scrutiny.

Well aware he holds numerous positions out of step with the conservative base of the Republican party, Bush acknowledges, “I am who I’ve been.” 

Yep. We’ve noticed. 

Who he’s “been” also includes Jeb Bush being a longtime and dedicated supporter of Common Core.

Undeniable proof that liberalism is a mental disorder

Hillary’s presidential aspirations take a nosedive

Speaking at a foreign policy conference at Georgetown University this past week, Hillary Clinton stunned the half-filled auditorium with her irrational comments:

“Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect —- even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible —-  empathize —-  with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.”

It appears Hillary has developed short-term memory loss and isn’t able to recall the unprovoked deaths of nearly 3,000 on American soil that took place on September 11, 2001 as those she says we should “respect,” “empathize with,” and “try to understand” flew commandeered airliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. She’s obviously forgotten the epidemic of barbaric beheadings of civilians by kindred Islamic extremist terrorists and the savagery of forced rapes of hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian school girls by the al Qaeda-linked sect Boko Haram. Surely she would have recollections of the acts of terrorism that took the lives of four Americans including the U.S. Ambassador at our Consulate in Benghazi, Libya —- since it occurred on her own watch as Secretary of State.

As she said, “What difference does it make?”


Democrats engage in voter fraud, ‘ballot harvesting’

October 28, 2014

By now Arizona’s left-wing ballot stuffing escapade has been seen far and wide. Truth Revolt’s Ben Shapiro reports on the deceptive practices caught on tape. On Monday, Maricopa County Republican Chairman A.J. LaFaro appeared on NewsMax‘ “America’s Forum” with host J.D. Hayworth discussing the scheme known as “ballot harvesting.”

‘Joe for America’ expands on the insidiousness with this shocking account of Obama administration officials convicted of voter fraud in Indiana —- asking the question, “Why is it only Democrats who deal in voter fraud, when it’s they who say it never happens? If this story does not convince you the entire nation needs strict voter ID laws, nothing will.”

Fox News reports a jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democrat political operatives have been convicted in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democrat Party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr.  was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former County Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who also pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democrat officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democrat Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

These recent exposés of fraudulent election activities should motivate legislators to strengthen laws, ensuring our political process provides voters with a sense of confidence in the integrity of the voting system.


Hillary shares Obama’s class warfare mentality

October 26, 2014

Liberal focus remains on disparagement of job creating businesses

“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” Hillary says.

“You know that old theory? Trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly. You know, one of the things my husband says when people say, ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington?’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic.”

This is Hillary Clinton’s “you didn’t build that” moment. Americans have been forewarned that another four years of Obamanomics could be right around the corner.

Two timing McCain jilts Hillary

Fickle McCain dumping Hillary for Lindsey

Was it just last year that the awestruck John McCain called Hillary Clinton a “rock star” and said he could support her presidential bid in 2016?

His deep affection for Clinton remained true, even in the face of the outrage he expressed over the four dead Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya —- left unprotected by the State Department Clinton oversaw and the barrage of lies told in the cover-up effort.

Now we see the old crooner either forgot he was already serenading his liberal honey Hillary, or he suddenly discovered she isn’t quite as alluring as his submissive South Carolinian buddy Lindsey Graham.  Either way, the daily reports that “if U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham decides to run for president in 2016, he can count on the whole-hearted support of the 2008 Republican nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain, his longtime ally on national security, immigration reform and other matters.”

“Of course,” McCain, said, explaining his change of heart. “I mean, we’re the closest of friends.”

Then the ever-vacillating “Maverick” said this about the wife of the only Democrat to carry the state of Arizona since Harry Truman in 1948: “Sen. Clinton has earned great respect for her tenacity and courage. The media often overlooked how compassionately she spoke to the concerns and dreams of millions of Americans, and she deserves a lot more appreciation than she sometimes received.”

“As the father of three daughters, I owe her a debt for inspiring millions of women to believe there is no opportunity in this great country beyond their reach. I am proud to call her my friend.”

Pay more for gas? Radical U.S. Chamber thinks you should

August 13, 2014

U.S. Chamber is not a benign business group, but a massive liberal entity

If you think the price of a fill-up at the local service station is steep, Thomas J. Donohue will not be your favorite guy. Donohue, the President and CEO of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, is concerned about the nation’s infrastructure. So much so, in fact, he’s written a piece titled, “Let’s pave the way for infrastructure funding,” in which he opines that it’s time to “raise the gas tax.”

The U.S. Chamber believes, he writes, that the simplest, most straightforward way to fix the Highway Trust Fund is to raise the gas tax, which hasn’t been done in nearly 20 years. A modest, phased-in increase —- plus indexing to inflation —- would shore up the fund. This proposal has gained the support of labor and key industries, including trucking and shipping. We believe that motorists could get behind it as well if Congress were serious about ensuring that the money goes to the most essential projects.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, says Donohue, is calling on Congress to seriously consider a long-term revenue solution this fall, with the goal of creating —-  and seizing —- the opportunity to act before year-end. Time is short and the consequences of inaction are high.

GasBuddy.com compiles and updates the lowest and highest per gallon prices in the Valley. Options include Regular, Midgrade, Premium and Diesel. Tracking prices over the past nine months, with a few peaks and valleys, the rise in the cost of a fill-up is unmistakable.

Displaying an immense disregard for Americans still struggling in a severely depressed economy, the Chamber is, in a platitude-laced screed, supportive of a continued flood of illegals to compete with American citizens for fewer jobs, advocating for earned “lawful status for the undocumented with no future bar to citizenship.”

In plain English that means the illegal labor profiteers desire a continued flood of low-cost labor, regardless of the consequences to American workers. In May, Donohue issued a threat and ultimatum to the Republican Party: Either pass amnesty or don’t bother fielding a presidential candidate in 2016.  Rick Moran covered Donahue’s blatant, partisan extremism for PJ Media.

The U.S. Chamber is also supportive of Common Core, Obama’s federal overreach into America’s education system, driven by a mindset that educational control via federal bureaucrats is preferable to state and local oversight guided by input from parents, teachers and neighborhood school boards.

And who knew the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has a International Affairs Division ‘headquartered near the White House,” which “leads the business community’s efforts to shape global policy”? The division is headed by a guy with the unlikely name of Myron Brilliant. But then again, it is the brilliant and all-powerful OZ-like Chamber.


Bush-Bolick duo pen another Open Borders missive

July 25, 2014

Bush tries to move away from notorious remark, “illegal immigration is an act of love”

Here we go again. The amnesty duo of Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick have co-authored yet again.  First it was their book “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution.”  Now the twosome has taken to the Opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal with “The Solution to Border Disorder.” The amnesty hucksters opine the “best antidote to illegal immigration is a functioning system of legal immigration.”

The usual blather about “America’s broken immigration system” leaps out in the first paragraph.  Next comes the trio of trites, beginning with the “need for compassion” in the face of the “humanitarian crisis.”

But what’s this? Bush and Bolick schizophrenically jump from these squish views to sounding like hardliners, with “we must close loopholes” that allow  for releases from federal custody between hearings.…except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking.  The flood of children must be returned to their homes in Central America. Then they say “we must aggressively remove the incentives that encourage people to break immigration laws.”

 Whoa. Sorry pals. You can’t have it both ways. 

But still they try. “We should pursue interdiction strategies that head off illegal immigration before it gets to our border, calling for greater American engagement economically.”  Moderates always think money has a palliative effect. These two sound suspiciously committed to Obama’s request for $3.7 billion of our tax dollars to address the invasion.

It’s no surprise the Bush-Bolick Team are onboard with the latest incarnation of McCain-Flake legislation, which they extol as increasing by 5,000 the number of humanitarian visas available in each of the countries producing the dispersion of illegals — Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras — providing an incentive, they claim, for individuals to stay in their home country and pursue immigration legally.

Trust in these practiced deceivers at your own peril.

As Jeb licks his chops in anticipation of a 2016 presidential run, it’s difficult not to agree with the Bush family matriarch, Barbara, who openly declared there had been “enough Bushes” in the Oval Office.

Mom is right. John Ellis Jeb,” is a Bush too far.”  Watch and listen closely.
