Jeb finds few friends at Conservative Conference

February 28, 2015

Jeb Bush, the wanna-be Number 3 in his family’s presidential dynasty, encountered protests at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday in National Harbor, Maryland.

The amnesty and Common Core supporter stands by his scheme to give drivers’ licenses to illegals. When he was governor of Florida, Bush also pushed for in-state tuition for children of illegal aliens. Few can forget when he referred to illegal immigration as “an act of love.”(video)

The Washington Times reported that conservatives who resent the GOP establishment foisting yet another squish Republican into prominence were organizing a protest of Jeb’s conference speech. In anticipation of such an embarrassing walkout, Slate reported Bush’s team resorted to importing supporters from downtown Washington, D.C. Chartered buses were scheduled to depart from K Street, the heart of the lobbying industry.

The walkout began shortly after Bush strolled on stage. As he continued to finagle answers to questions posed by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, greater numbers of attendees booed and then filed out. (video)

As the brother and son of the last two Republican presidents, Jeb Bush appears to think the presidency is now his due.  He’s obviously spent too much time listening to RINO strategist Karl Rove. Conservatives have been down this GOP Establishment path previously with mediocre or unrepresentative of the grassroots candidates —- Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney.

This time winning is more important than ever. In fact, it may well be crucial to our very survival. After two terms of Barack Obama and with Hillary Clinton looking likely to snag the Democrat nomination, there is no room for Republican blunders such as Jeb Bush.


Jeb a sure loser for GOP: Reject Bush imperial dynasty

February 23, 2015

The Sunday news programs parade a panoply of potential GOP presidential candidates, giving each their obligatory sound bites followed by analysis by the panelists gauging their viability. Each in turn is weighed as to suitability to run against the  already anointed Democrat—- a problem-plagued,  Cher-like candidate known far and wide by a single name.

Although the list of potential Republican candidates is long, the party establishment powerbrokers, strategists and the eager media, appear to have already selected their donor-amassing candidate. But for multitudes of “Bush weary” conservatives, Jeb Bush is a dynasty too far.

Phyllis Schlafly, still going strong at age 90, has long argued that the American conservative movement’s purpose is to influence, not echo, the Republican Party. In this column in the Washington Times, she warns against letting the party’s “kingmakers,” the Wall Street elite and their acquiescing political consultant class coronate former Florida governor Jeb Bush.

Mincing no words, Mrs. Schlafly makes her case in a 2015 update to her landmark book a half-century ago titled “A Choice, Not an Echo,” which in 1964 became the motto of Barry Goldwater’s grassroots movement.

In her update, Mrs. Schlafly -— founder of the Eagle Forum —- argues that her party too often picks losers as candidates because of a stranglehold by the political consultant-big business-Wall Street crowd, which makes a bundle from championing moderates over conservatives.

She warns that may be happening again in 2016 in the persona of Jeb Bush, noting “closed-door events have been held for Republican mega-donors to select who will get the big money that went last time to Mitt Romney,” and that the mainstream media already are cheering on Jeb Bush. Read the complete article by Ralph Z.

Then carve out the time to acquaint yourself with Mexico-born Columba Bush, Jeb’s wife. The revealing article, “Bush Spouse Backs Jeb, but Is Wary of Family Business,”  in the New York Times is written by  Patrick Healy and Sheryl Gay Stolberg.  It’s easy to see why it took a trio, including researcher Kitty Bennett, to compile this informative piece.

Today we ask our readers to share who your “2016 Dream Ticket’ would be —- and why? We can do better than what’s being shoved our way by the Karl Rove elites.


McCain’s 2016 pick a mirror-image non-starter

February 2, 2015

Ditches Hillary for another sweetie

Failed presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain is not exactly on the same page as most Arizona Republicans. He was the object of ridicule, receiving boos and turned backs at the annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party from many of the nearly 800 elected delegates, where he made a rare appearance last weekend. (A video of the spectacle is included under the link.)

McCain was censured in 2014 at the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, where the resolution to censure passed overwhelmingly — 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed. Arizona’s “unfavorite son” was censured again two weeks later by a 78% margin at the 2014 GOP Statutory Meeting.

The majority of Arizona counties also passed censure resolutions against the unpopular McCain. Few Arizona conservatives care what he thinks.

Now Bloomberg News reports that McCain —- who influences no one —- has announced his intention to support his longtime doppelganger, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, if he officially decides to run for president.

Last October, McCain began withdrawing his support from Hillary Clinton, whom he’d previously lavished with enthusiastic praise and referred to as a “Rock Star.”

The multi-censured McCain and Lindsey Graham have even more in common than their weak border security and amnesty positions putting them at odds with their constituents. Republicans in South Carolina passed this censure resolution publicly rebuking  Sen. Lindsey Graham. The censure, which passed by the identical 78% as the reproach of McCain, cites 30 examples of Graham violating the Republican Party platform. At the bottom of the page, are other censures against Graham going back to 2007.

The 30-point censure states: “Lindsey Graham has committed a long series of actions that we strongly disapprove of and hold to be fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party.”

On the list of grievances is his McCain-like support of amnesty, which has earned him the label Lindsey Grahamnesty.

McCain and Graham are well-matched amigos. If he enters the race, we predict his effort will be as well received as McCain’s.  America deserves better.


Departing candidate Mitt gets it right with Jeb jab

January 30, 2015

Bush fatigue coupled with Jeb Bush’s notorious amnesty stance make his candidacy unacceptable

In his Friday morning announcement that he will not be running for president, Mitt Romney lobbed a less than subtle parting shot at 61-year-old Jeb Bush.  Though cloaked, conservative politicos got his message loud and clear —- and Romney was right on target.

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney, 67, said, as he underscored the need for a fresh face for the GOP.

“I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee,” he told supporters on the conference call during which he announced his decision. “In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.”

We join Mitt Romney in that hope.

Here is Jeb Bush calling the invasion of the United States by illegal aliens, “an act of love.” 

“Yes, they broke the law,” Jeb Bush acknowledges, “but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. It shouldn’t rile people up that people are coming to this country to provide for their families.”


Gallup’s 2014 most admired list illustrates public disconnect

January 4, 2015

Ignorance of facts glaringly evident as Americans elevate popular culture, abandon fundamental principles 

In a list rife with celebrities, radical leftists and even several bona fide Marxists, Americans continue to vigorously demonstrate that the education establishment is succeeding in its primary job of dumbing down the populace.

According to this recent Gallup poll, Americans continue to name Hillary Clinton as the woman —- living anywhere in the world —- whom they admire most, and name Barack Obama as the man they admire most. Clinton has held the top women’s spot in each of the last 13 years and 17 of the last 18, with that streak interrupted only by first lady Laura Bush in 2001 after the 9/11 terror attacks. Obama has been most admired man in each of the last seven years, beginning with 2008, the year he was elected president.

Check out the list of the most admired men and women —- if you are able to use your keyboard, hold your nose and scratch your head simultaneously.

Myriad examples of their deceit abound. Here are just two:

THIS is practiced liar Barack Obama, cunningly conning the American public about his “open and transparent” administration:

THIS will refresh your memory regarding the deceptive Hillary Clinton:


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?”
