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. 

Bush family: Political dynasty ambitions resurge

March 30, 2014

Dynasties should remain relegated to Chinese historical studies 

When the leftist Washington Post writes that “influential Republicans” are promoting the draft candidacy of yet another Bush for president in 2016, that news should position conservative Republican’s antenna to high alert mode.

Papa — George Herbert Walker — Bush began the disappointing tradition as 41st president. He famously reneged on hisread my lips, no new taxespledge in a 1990 compromise with liberals that cost him a second term. Coming on the heels of two terms of Ronald Reagan, the actions of the former ambassador to China and the United Nations were viewed as a betrayal of Republican ideals.

Bush cut a deal with Democrats who promised —- but never delivered —- extensive budget cuts. The disastrous tax increase that followed led to increased spending, elevated taxes, and gave us the Clinton presidency, which further hiked both taxes and spending.

Then came his amnesty-promoting son, former Texas Governor George W. Bush. As president, “Dubya” rose to the occasion in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and implementing tax cuts, but was a mixed bag on other significant issues.

Former Florida Governor, 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. Watch the two disturbing videos in this post, “Another Bush? Thanks, Jeb, but we’ve had enough,” for an idea of his stance. It’s not much of a surprise the liberal Washington Post is writing about him being “drafted” for a presidential run.

Waiting in the wings is Jeb’s 37-year-old lawyer son, George Prescott Bush (known as “P”). A lawyer married to a lawyer —- in the tradition of the Clinton’s and Obama’s —- “P” has already ignited his political career with his recent election as Commissioner of the Texas Land Office —-  and is a Bush even further.

The cry of “Uncle” has its roots in asking for deliverance or mercy, usually interpreted to mean “Enough!”

McCain: If election were tomorrow, Hillary would win

February 22, 2014


John McCain, whose good fortune has not included winning the White House, has now predicted that if the 2016 presidential election took place  tomorrow, his good friend Hillary Clinton would win.

Appearing with the liberal host of “Piers Morgan Live” on CNN,  McCain  lurched back into his chummy address form, saying, “I would bet, my friend, as much as I hate to admit it, that right now — this is why we have campaigns (heh, heh) — if the election were tomorrow, Hillary Clinton would most likely be president of the United States.”

While McCain disingenuously claimed, “She wouldn’t be my candidate,” he said that Clinton currently has the best chance of winning due to her popularity, adding it’s a good thing the 2016 election is still three years off, giving Republicans some time.

Hillary‘s husband, Bill, has previously declared, “She and John McCain are very close. They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history, and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other,” the former president said.

Piers Morgan’s ratings have hit new lows. Our prediction is he’d have a better chance at an uptick with a more compelling guest than the disgraced John McCain.

Rubio doubletalks amnesty as 2016 hopes evaporate

October 27, 2013

McGang of 8 caper tanking 2016 aspirations; now talks “piecemeal approach”

Sen. Marco Rubio appears to be a political casualty of following John McCain, lemming-like, off the amnesty cliff as a member of the so-called Gang of 8.  Just months ago, the brash, young Florida Republican was surging in the polls.  Now he is barely sucking oxygen.  Earlier this month, the conservative Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit presidential straw poll pummeled Rubio, throwing him a mere five percent of the vote. In the Oct. 22, WMUR Granite State Poll, Rubio tied for seventh place with just 4 percent of GOP voters saying they would support him.

In the following video Rubio talks about “solving immigration” saying, “but I don’t think we should not do anything because we can not do everything….I continue to believe that a series of sequential individual bills is the best way, the ideal way, to reform to our immigration system,” he says.

Americans have a right to expect those entering our sovereign nation to do so respectfully and legally. That is the ideal way to support our generous immigration policies, Mr. Rubio.  There is no need for “reform.”

As an example, compare the United States to other developed nations* on the single issue of birthright citizenship. Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, France, India, Malta, Great Britain and Portugal have all repealed their Birthright Citizenship laws — the automatic granting of citizenship to children of tourists or illegal aliens born within a nation’s borders or territories.

Jeb Bush opting out of 2016 presidential race?

September 6, 2013

Set to bestow honor on Hillary Clinton Sept. 10th

In a move guaranteed to ensure failure as he sets his sights on the 2016 Republican nomination for president, Jeb Bush will present Hillary Clinton with the 2013 Liberty Medal in “recognition of her lifelong career in public service.”

The insulting ceremony is scheduled one day short of one year after the Benghazi terrorist attack that took place September 11, 2012.  As Secretary of State, Clinton engaged in a lengthy campaign of lies and despicable obfuscation, attempting to conceal the truth of the massacre that left 4 Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. 

The State Department knew minutes after the siege began that terrorists were attacking the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, but the Obama administration hacks denied knowledge, relentlessly and misleadingly blaming the siege on a few dissidents allegedly upset over an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

Clinton conveniently became too ill to testify on the matter when called before a congressional committee. Here she is after her miraculous recovery, asking “What difference at this point does it make?”

For a review of  Jeb Bush’s stance on the issues, this March 6 post on his Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution,” book-pushing tour with his co-author Clint Bolick of the Goldwater Institute should be enlightening.

The perils of McAssociation: Rubio tanks, Cruz soars

September 3, 2013

Marco Rubio (FL) and Ted Cruz (TX) are both 42-year-old Republican U.S. Senators with aspirations. Both are Americans of Cuban heritage. Yet one’s political career is soaring as the other is deflating as swiftly as a helium filled balloon that has hit a nail.

The reason? None other than John McCain.

John McCain, who led the previously popular Sen. Marco Rubio down amnesty’s Primrose Path by bringing him in as a member of the Gang of Eight, has disingenuously said writing Rubio off in a 2016 presidential run is “just foolish.”  Rubio’s plunge is due to the fact that McCain, Jeff Flake, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and the other gangsters needed a neutralizing agent to sell their Obama-backed scheme to what has previously been regarded as “conservative media.”  Rubio was tapped for that job. Back in June, we noted that amnesty had become prevailing view as Fox News began stifling dissenting views.

Rubio’s payoff for doing the gang’s bidding has been a significant downward plunge in the polls and a royal dissing at gatherings where he is heckled over his amnesty stance while struggling in vain to repair his once bright image. Watch for the discredited Rubio to run for re-election rather than aim for the presidency. As Rubio’s association with McCain has caused him to be viewed as damaged goods, McCain nemesis Ted Cruz began to hit his stride.

The Washington Post reports that Cruz was the hit of a recent two-day conference in Rubio’s home state of Florida where loud chants of “Run, Ted, run!” filled a hotel ballroom of more than 1,500 attendees. The cheers came after he challenged Republicans to use an upcoming budget vote to try to force through a measure to defund ObamaCare.

“Right now, the people who are fighting the hardest against our effort to defund ObamaCare are sadly Republican,” Cruz has said. “Over and over again, they say, ‘’We can’t win this fight.’ Well, you know — you lose 100 percent of the fights that you surrender at the outset.”

For their support of the rule of law, and our national sovereignty, John McCain derided Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul as representing an “obsolete, isolationist, America-Firsters” element of the Republican Party. McCain’s fickle heart is actually with Hillary Clinton, whom he terms a “rock star.”

Just don’t let his faithful companion Lindsey Graham know. The news could break his heart.

FEC fines McCain $80K for campaign finance violations

August 24, 2013

The latest news is that John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign committee has been fined $80,000 by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for accepting contributions that exceeded federal limits.

The hometown fish wrap known as the Arizona Republic doesn’t regard this important enough for the front page or even back placement in the front section.  Nope.  McCain’s admitted violations of the law rate page three in the Valley and State B section.

His campaign acknowledged incorrectly reporting the dates the contributions were received. Additionally, the required 48-hour disclosure notices for 169 contributions totaling $240,700 that it received prior to the general election was ignored by the McCain-Palin Compliance Fund Inc. and John Schmuckler, the treasurer of both.

In this conciliation agreement with the FEC, McCain’s campaign admitted violating the law by accepting $377,657 in contributions that exceeded legal limits; failed to report correctly the original dates on which $22,257,684 in contributions were received by its joint fundraising representatives; and failed to correctly report re-designations made to the compliance fund.

Were he less reprehensible, it might be tempting to cut the guy some slack. After all, his memory has failed him often, as embarrassingly evidenced here and here. When asked during his presidential race McCain couldn’t even remember how many homes his beer heiress wife, Cindy, owns — and he gets to live in. He hesitatingly told a reporter, “I think….I’ll have my staff get back to you.”
