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. 


Costco plays politics — far left version

July 10, 2014

Big-box wholesaler Costco has pulled Dinesh D’Souza’s  new book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” just after the nationwide release of the companion movie —- but Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti claims the decision was not motivated by political considerations.

The book, strongly critical of Barack Obama, was officially released June 2. A corporate decision to return the books was issued July 1, just as it is about to debut on the New York Times bestseller list.

Galanti confirmed to Jerome Corsi at WND the “pull order” was in effect and that D’Souza’s book is in the process of being removed from Costco stores this week, with the goal to have all copies of his book out of Costco stores nationwide and shipped back to the vendor no later than July 15.

He claims the decision to pull the book was not political but was based solely on sales, arguing Costco’s national goal is to market books that show up on the New York Times bestseller list.

The book will make the New York Times list July 13.

Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco, endorsed Barack Obama (video) at the Democratic National Convention in 2012. In total, Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC. Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle.

Read “Costco removing D’Souza’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from shelves. and then decide if you want to keep supporting this radical leftist and funding his donations to a regime dedicated to destroying America. This update, “Costco denies political motive for pulling D’Souza’s book,” expands upon the sorry saga.  

In January, Obama paid a visit to a Costco store in a Washington, D.C., suburb, “proving,” as Jaime Fuller of the Washington Post commented, “that his administration’s romance with the second-largest retailer in America is stronger than ever —- and might just be the most successful union of a politician and a supermarket in American history.”

Watch as D’Souza discusses his film:

 Then make plans to see it. 


Sen. Ted Cruz wows at Texas’ GOP convention

June 8, 2014

Politico reports on the Texas Republican convention held over the weekend, beginning with these words: “The stage was set for a clash of political titans as three likely presidential candidates and thousands of conservatives” gathered together.

Instead, the Texas GOP convention turned into a blowout bash for Ted Cruz.

The Texas senator was introduced at times as “the next president of the United States.” His speeches were punctuated by chants of “Run, Ted, run!” and supporters mobbed him at his huge exhibition booth. Cruz easily overshadowed fellow potential 2016ers at the event, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and he dominated them in a substantial sampling in the presidential straw poll held there.

Here are the results of the informal poll which surveyed 5,266 of an estimated 7,000 convention-goers from June 4-7.

Sen. Ted Cruz    43.4%

Dr. Ben Carson  12.2  (not in attendance)

Sen. Rand Paul  12.1

Gov. Rick Perry 11.7

Gov. Jeb Bush   3.3

Establishment Republicans such as John McCain, who actually mocked Cruz as a “wacko bird” on the floor of the senate, disdain Cruz’s stick-it-to-Washington attitude —- which is exactly what wins him strong conservative support.


JFK Foundation honors Bush 41 for “courageous” lie

April 26, 2014

An outstanding example of Democrat irony is the naming of former President George H. W. Bush as a 2014 recipient of the John F. Kennedy “Profile in Courage award in recognition of the political courage he demonstrated as President. 

In what courageous action did the Republican Bush engage that would be so grand as to win the hearts of Democrats?

If you guessed that the award is being given to Bush ‘41’ because he ridiculed Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts as “voodoo economics” during his own 1980 failed presidential campaign, you lose.

Bush will receive the award for breaking his 1988 convention speech pledge not to raise taxes. According to the Kennedy Foundation, signing the tax increase after solemnly promising not to do so, took courage.

In naming the one-term former president for this distinction, John F. Kennedy’s grandson Jack Schlossberg, a member of the award committee, said. “In his first term in office, President George H. W. Bush risked his reputation and ultimately his political career by forging an important compromise on the budget in 1990 that moved our country forward, and should not be forgotten.”

The lie continued to haunt G.H.W. Bush. He lost his 1992 reelection bid to Democrat Bill Clinton. And in a remarkable bit of full circle coincidence, the New York Post reports Schlossberg’s mother Caroline Kennedy says she’s “absolutely” endorsing Hillary Clinton if she runs for president in 2016.

As a reward for her 2008 endorsement of him, Obama appointed the articulate Caroline as U.S. ambassador to Japan.

Call it what you will, Bush’s award will be presented at a ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston on May 4, 2014.


Why Jeb Bush will never be President

April 23, 2014

Illegal invasion of U.S. given green light by Jeb Bush and his cohorts Flake and Bolick 

Education Week makes no bones about the Scottsdale summit where “deal making” and “money moving through the education market“ featured Jeb Bush. The former Florida governor amorously eyeing a 2016 presidential run, called for more guest worker programs and a path to amnesty for all of the country’s illegal aliens. 

Speaking at the sold-out, three-day event known as “Davos in the Desert at the Phoenician Resort on Monday evening, Bush stuck to his one-note tune that the United States needed “robust guest worker programs” and an expansion of H1-B visas for the high-tech industry,” even though the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers has been outed as a myth. He also disingenuously called for a “tough but fair path to legalized status” for all of the country’s illegal foreign nationals and an end to immigration quotas. 

Breitbart reports that Bush declared that it was not an “American value to have 12-13 million people living in the shadows.”  Count on the fact that no one called Bush out on the shopworn estimate in use for the better part of a decade. Immigration Counters has a number at least twice that figure based on multiple data sources.

This third Bush aspirant has called the illegal invasion “an act of love and actually said the issue “shouldn’t rile people up.”  As if on cue, John McCain’s doppelganger Jeff Flake agreed with Bush, praising him for having “the guts to say it.” 

Even establishment Republicrat Karl Rove, who has taken his losing battle of bashing conservatives on the roadconceded that Jeb Bush was not artful (sly enough) in those remarks. At the conference, which was co-hosted by Arizona State University and GSV Advisors, Bush made no reference to those prior comments, though he has previously defended them.

John Ellis “Jeb,” is a Bush too far.  Strongly influenced by his Mexican-born and reared wife Columbia whose father was a “migrant worker,” his border positions raise even greater concern than the pro-amnesty Bushes who have occupied the Oval Office.

Watch the two disturbing videos of Jeb Bush and his co-author Clint Bolick in this post, “Another Bush? Thanks, Jeb, but we’ve had enough,” for an idea of his stance. They actually call for amnesty before  giving any thought to closing down America’s dangerously porous border.  The duo recently wrote “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution,” the hardcover of which can now be purchased on Amazon for exactly what it’s worth: $2.78.

It’s not much of a surprise the liberal Washington Post has written about Republicrat Jeb being “drafted” for a presidential run.
