I’ll Vote for any Three of These GOP Candidates


Romney - Trump

John R. Houk

© March 3, 2016

 

Despite the insults being passed between the remaining GOP candidates, I’ll be voting for whichever one of these three in my order of preference without apprehension:

 

  1. Ted Cruz

 

  1. Marco Rubio

 

  1. Donald Trump

 

Senator Cruz because he comes the closest to my sentiments on Conservatism and Social Issues.

 

Senator Rubio for roughly the same reason, but I have suspicion of his immigration agenda which if he follows through with a Gang of Eight process may favor a complimentary status for the illegal aliens who should not be here due to criminality or welfare benefits.

 

Donald Trump is third because of his open dislike for America’s current border security and his make America Great via a strong military and at least the intention of forcing lower wage and export price gouging from foreign nations to the detriment of Americans. Frankly I have big doubts about Trump’s Conservative and Christian dedication bona fides; however I can live with a President who doesn’t push any ideological position other than American Exceptionalism. Trump American Exceptionalism benefits Conservatives way more than the self-destructive American Left.

 

Now in saying all that I find it quite annoying that Mitt Romney has openly come out against Donald Trump in a pro-GOP Establishment manner. Honestly it is because of Romney that I left the Republican Party as a registered voter and change to a registered Independent. It’s the likes of LOSER Romney and GOP Establishment Americans had to endure another four years of the Obama deception and more America-destroying Leftist transformation.

 

ERGO I was quite pleased that the Gateway Pundit posted a segment portion of Fox News’ OutNumbered with Andrea Tantaro taking Mitt Romney to task for hating Donald Trump as if the words of a loser who should have won his bid has a valid opinion.

Gateway Pundit

 

The GOP establishment has launched an all-out assault on Donald Trump.

Mitt Romney fired a brutal attack on Donald Trump today in Utah.

 

Andrea Tantaros unloaded on former liberal Mitt Romney after his Anti-Trump speech in Utah.

 

This was brutal!

 

“It’s almost like a coach who lost the Super Bowl 42-0 is now coming out and telling the winning coach what plays to call. If you look at his record in Massachusetts and I want to take him to task on this, because he hit Donald Trump in some key areas. Mitt Romney is a liberal. He used to be pro-choice. Jonathan Gruber, the one who called everyone stupid, wrote Romneycare and Obamacare. That was Mitt Romney’s top aide. I don’t know if he was at the speech today I didn’t see him in the audience. Also, he lectured Donald Trump on foreign policy? Mitt Romney did not want to go after Osama Bin Laden. And that we should attack Pakistan or ask Pakistan for permission before we attack. Harris, I could go on and on and on. Mitt Romney has NO BUSINESS lecturing voters on electability or conservatism. And I think voters today look at him and tell his brand of conservatism to take it and shove it.“

 

Go Andrea!

A Devil’s Pact


Justin Smith joins the long list of Conservatives – like the ones of the National Review – who believe Trump is swindling Conservatives through manipulation of voter anger with Obama’s policies and agenda.

On a personal level I am a Ted Cruz supporter. Nonetheless, I think I understand Trump’s popularity among Conservative-Republican voters. People are fed-up with Obama’s immigration policies whether they are illegal aliens from south of the border or refugee imparted status to Muslims fleeing conflicts originating with the Islamic Terrorists of ISIS-ISIL-IS-Daesh. Also Trump offers a Make-America-great theme. However, Trump is rather obscure on how that path will be achieved concretely. Yet angry Americans don’t care about the obscurity is long as there is the appearance someone intends to move heaven and earth to make America great again as in BEFORE Obama.

Ted Cruz is truly a Conservative. Offers a more concrete path to American greatness without making a bargain with a deal that validates his leadership more than upgrading America.

I could probably ramble on but this is Justin Smith’s time to share.

A Devil’s Pact

Destroying the Heart of America

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 1/24/2016 2:06 PM

Donning a conservative persona, Donald Trump is cleverly pandering to American conservative’s and presenting his utopian hell as a Trump paradise, in which America is made “great again.” And, while America’s many virtues and time honored principles are still largely intact — while suffering constant Progressive and fascist assaults — Trump voters and fools are not concerned that Trump’s policy plans shift with each successive speech, because they only want a strongman who shares their values. Their disregard for circumspect scrutiny and their failure to demand policy details from Trump will serve to further demolish constitutional governance in America.

Yes. In some instances, Trump has correctly identified certain areas of crisis in America, such as immigration and refugee policies, in a manner similar to that of any average ten-year old in the country, with a sincerity that is highly questionable. He rarely makes clear statements regarding America’s problems, while stating that he will do “great things, without providing specifics, facts, details, substance or principles.

Trump is a dangerous anti-free market, crony capitalist, big government, statist demagogue, who never makes any arguments for libertarianism, conservatism or the Constitution. But he does brag of his own corrupt nature and just how easily he “buys” corrupt politicians.

Why on earth would any liberty loving, honest, selfless American, with an unshakable inner faith in God and America, want to replace Obama’s corrupt administration with an equally corrupt Trump administration?

The few times Trump has managed a coherent thought, Americans have heard Trump brag about how he’ll “get things done” with the Democrats, in compromise. Compromising the founding principles that built America with the foreign ideas of Marxism is the reason we’re in this mess now. Conservative Americans do not want any more of such “compromise” — “compromise” — a Progressive code for “let’s destroy the U.S. Constitution.”

Representing big trouble for America, we recently witnessed statist Progressive Republicans, under Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, give Obama a larger spending bill than even the Democrats had asked to receive. And Senator Ted Cruz notes: “Why is a Republican majority leader fighting to accomplish the priorities of the Democratic minority?”

With such an enormous Progressive presence in both parties inside the D.C. establishment and Trump’s own acknowledged affinity to the Democratic Party and New York values [i.e. abortion and gun control], what can America really expect from Trump? It certainly won’t be less government and more individual liberty.

In 2009, Trump told Neil Cavuto (Fox News) that Obama’s stimulus “had to be done”, which isn’t accurate in light of U.S. bankruptcy laws and propagates the Marxist myth of financial institutes “too big to fail.” Trump would later elaborate to the Conservative Review: [The stimulus was] “pork, as we call it, or … gifts to certain people. But overall, I think he’s [Pres. Obama] doing very well.”

When the Tea Party Patriots asked Trump to commit to the Penny Plan and cut $0.01 per year from every dollar of Federal spending, Trump refused and stated: “I will propose budgets that freeze overall spending levels until such time as the budget comes into balance.” [Scroll down to point 4]

This guarantees the continuation of trillion dollar budgets; and necessarily, the only way that the budget can be balanced is by increasing tax revenues by more than half a trillion dollars annually. This will happen only by raising taxes.

Most of the best known economic experts, the Tax Foundation [a nonpartisan tax research group], the Brookings Institute and the Tax Policy Center [TPC Details] contend that Trump’s tax plans will increase the national debt by $10.14 trillion over a decade and $24.5 trillion in two decades, unless it includes huge spending cuts. This debt will eventually have to be paid, so Trump’s tax cuts are only temporary at best; and payment will fall on the shoulders of the next generation of Americans.

Americans will also find Trump unsympathetic to their desire to protect their private property. He loves the Supreme Court’s Kelo decision, which allows the transfer of less prosperous landowners’ private property to wealthy private developers in a reprehensible abuse of eminent domain, if it provides a financial boost to the local community. Trump has utilized this maneuver several times in the past, starting with Vera Coking in the 1990s.

And can America trust Trump to lead a Congressional repeal of Obamacare, since he has often expressed his admiration for Sweden’s single-payer healthcare system and the socialized systems of Canada and the U.K.?

Do we really want a President Trump, who has said he would like to appoint his partial-birth abortion supporting sister, Federal Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, to the U.S. Supreme Court? — who once supported partial-birth abortion himself? [Charisma News weighs in by showing waffling back and forth on Obama. So question should be, “Can Conservatives trust a guy who pleases the audience listening to him?”]

Then one must consider Trump’s protectionist trade philosophy. It is similar to the 19th century guild socialism that mutated into fascism and then Nazism, and, while I subscribe to a certain degree of “protectionism” to counter current continuing currency manipulations and regularly fume over the damage that the World Trade Agreement and NAFTA did to the U.S. economy, Trump’s proposal of a 25% tax on foreign goods will surely result in a global trade war and punitive economic measures aimed at products made in America. America will see an untold number of U.S. firms leaving the country, as trade grinds to a halt along with our economy.

And, concerning the horrible Iran nuclear deal — a simple agreement between two heads of state and unratified by Congress — Presidential candidate Ted Cruz has said he would “rip it up” on entering office; and yet, Trump calls it a “contract” America must honor, but he would “renegotiate harder terms”. It is not a contract or a treaty, and Trump’s statement is one more example of his gross lack of knowledge and understanding of our U.S. Constitution.

Trump’s brand of statism may not meet the classic text book definition of “fascism”, but his statements echo an authoritarianism similar to fascism. He rarely speaks of working through Congress and he seems to assume he can accomplish his goals through his own will and the demands he will make upon his own authority, with or without Congress, just as he thinks he can force foreign powers to do his bidding. His administration will be heavy with crony capitalism, privilege for the few and bureaucracies controlling everything.

Donald Trump is manipulating the current political environment and conservative America’s justifiable anger over the damage to U.S. domestic and foreign affairs, that resulted from Obama’s Progressive Democrat policies; and in the process, through his populist message, insolent lies and glib propaganda, Trump is perpetrating a political swindle on America, second only to the one Obama managed. If conservative Americans give Trump the Republican nomination, they will be further destroying the principles that founded this nation — the heart of America — and entering a devil’s pact with a fascist.

Trump’s Fluctuating Loyalty


Justin Smith provides many legitimate reasons why Conservatives should think twice before committing to a Trump nomination for POTUS. The thing is I don’t believe Trump has become popular among Republican voters because of his ideology. The Donald has become representative of American Conservative and Independent displeasure with the business as usual politics exacted by Leftist Dems and Establishment Republicans.

I will not be voting for Donald Trump in my Oklahoma Primary. However if he did win the GOP nomination I would vote for him because he would shake up the way things operate in Washington DC. Trump will manage the Executive Branch as a CEO manages a major corporation. I have no doubts that government management will step on the toes of Leftists and Conservatives alike.

I doubt Trump will change any social issues dear to Conservatives but I suspect he will not add to the Leftist view of social issues. On money management of America’s economy I believe Trump will ignore all the utopian Leftist agendas. On the other hand it will remain to be seen if he cuts Big Government unless he views the operations of pork programs are not profitable.

I think you see my point without me competing with Justin’s thoughts which AGAIN are very legitimate concerns.

Trump’s Fluctuating Loyalty

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 10/17/2015 1:37 PM

Americans must not entrust the future of these United States to Donald Trump, despite his accurate assessment concerning the illegal immigration, economic and trade deficit problems. Trump is politically confused, lacking core principled moral values and integrity; and, he is a master of corruption in U.S. politics, who has admittedly bought politicians to increase his own wealth. Trump is no friend to the U.S. Constitution, and rather than being America’s salvation, a President Trump will only serve to the greater detriment of America.

Trump’s disdain for the Bill of Rights and individual liberty is readily apparent, when one reviews his attempts to steal private property for his own use through the misuse of eminent domain. Trump colluded with New Jersey’s Casino Reinvestment Development Authority in 1994 to forcibly remove Vera Coking from her land, valued at over $1 million, and “compensate” her only $251,000; righteously, Coking beat them in court. And in 2005, Trump told Neil Cavuto (Fox News) that he fully agreed with the Supreme Court’s 2005 ‘Kelo decision’, which legitimized this sort of government-abetted theft of private property.

Although Trump attempts to equate his midnight conversion to conservatism to President Ronald Reagan leaving the Democratic Party for the GOP, Trump has changed party affiliation from Republican to Independent to Democrat and back to Republican in a matter of two decades, just in time for the Iowa caucuses. Please note, Reagan’s core values never shifted away from a strong pro-life and pro-Second Amendment position in the way Trump’s values shift much like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his own personal agenda and who has his ear at the moment.

While Trump now says that “gun and magazine bans are a total failure” and presents himself as pro-2nd Amendment, he supported a ban on semi-automatic “assault weapons” and thirty round magazines as late as 2009 (note: A car or hammer can be an “assault weapon” too). His current acceptance of limited restrictions for gun ownership highlights his fundamentally flawed view of the 2nd Amendment, which reads “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

In 1999, Trump was interviewed by ‘Meet the Press’ when he was considering running for president, under Ross Perot’s reform Party. When asked if he would ban partial-birth abortion, he answered: “No I would not. I am pro-choice in every respect as far as it goes, but I just hate it.” And now, Trump is supposedly “pro-life”, probably in the same manner that Obama supported the Defense of Marriage Act until he did not.

Who in their right minds can wholeheartedly support Trump, when he was a Democrat, making massive donations to the likes of Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons and John Kerry and supporting the very “socialist/communist” views of that party as late as 2004 — the very “socialist/communist” views he now rails against?

Who is going to be fool enough to actually cast their vote for Trump, once they know that he supported John Kerry — a communist and islamofascist sympathizer — for president in 2004?

In 2007, Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that it “was a shame that race was lost”, as he talked about John Kerry’s and John Edward’s bid to take the White House for the Progressive Democrats. Trump elaborated with “I’m so upset that he [Kerry] blew it.”

Trump further exhibited his ignorance, his lack of reasoning and logic and his willingness to jump on the bandwagon behind any idea that appealed to his own fallacious beliefs in 2008, when he praised then Speaker Nancy Pelosi for attacking President Bush for getting the U.S. “into the war [Iraq] with lies.” Trump bought the Progressive talking points hook-line-and sinker and completely ignored the fact that even most of the Democratic Caucus, including Senator Hillary Clinton, supported President Bush’s action based on the very same intelligence — the only intelligence — that they and Bush had been given by U.S. and allied intelligence organizations.

In August 2015, Carly Fiorina, GOP presidential candidate, explained that Trump has tapped into America’s legitimate frustration, however, Fiorina concluded with this thought: “I would say this. Since he has changed his mind on amnesty, on healthcare and on abortion, I would ask, what are the principles by which he will govern?”

President Reagan’s son, Michael, recently told ‘Politifact’ that Donald Trump is the candidate who is least like Ronald Reagan. He countered Trump’s August assertion that he had a strong relationship with President Reagan by asking “exactly how many state dinners [was Trump] invited to?” Michael Reagan also suggested that Trump could not win the national election.

With Trump still giving the Clinton Foundation money in 2015, can YOU honestly say that you would trust Trump to govern the United States in an honest and constitutionally acceptable manner? Even though a President Trump may reduce the Depts. of Education and the EPA, America is quite likely to witness Big Government expand in other sectors, more crony-capitalism/corruption and an ingrained oligarchy and the further abuse of our U.S. Constitution.

Even though everyone learns new information throughout their lifetime, it usually only leads them to minor shifts in their core beliefs by the time they are well past their thirties, but Donald Trump has shown a pathological desire to change quite often between two most divergent political philosophies — the conservative belief of freedom under the law and the progressive belief that control is better than freedom. America does not need anyone in the White House who has shown such uncertainty in what they truly believe and hold most dear in their heart of hearts.

Aside from all of this, I cannot in good conscience vote for a person to be our U.S. President, who thinks “bigly” is a word and cannot quote a single verse from his “favorite book”, the Bible, when pressed to do so.

America needs an intelligent, knowledgeable Constitutional conservative, who will defend our religious freedom and the First Amendment, along with an equally forceful defense of the entire Bill of Rights, rather than the closet Progressive Trump and his convoluted understanding of the U.S. Constitution. America needs a man or woman, who is confident enough in their sense of righteous purpose to forcefully defend America and Her allies in the cause of Liberty — someone guided philosophically by the likes of Barry Goldwater, William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan. America needs a patriot, who recognizes our nation’s promise and the potential for opportunity that still remains, found in conservative principles, and, they will know that “In God We Trust” gives us hope and courage and moves the entire country towards greater prosperity and success.

STRATEGY MEMO: Restoring the Balance with the Supreme Court


Tea Party Express (TPX) has sent an election 2016 strategy for a Conservative President and the maintenance of a Conservative Republican majority in both Houses of Congress. Problematically and unfortunately, Congress may have to retain some RINOs to maintain that majority (HOWEVER, if your voting District or Senate seat can get a Conservative to replace a Republican Establishment incumbent then join the efforts to support that Conservative!!!).

In full disclosure you should examine the plan, but I’d advise you to contribute only if you are a TPX supporter. It is my opinion to use your financial resources (especially if they are a bit limited) to find a local Conservative or Tea Party organization (Here’s a good place to start) that knows more about the voting issues in your neck of the woods and donate to them.

STRATEGY MEMO: Restoring the Balance with the Supreme Court

By Taylor Budowich, Executive Director

Sent: 6/29/2015 5:59 PM

Sent by Tea Party Express

Patriots –

After the horrific week we endured at the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court, I spent the entire weekend developing a plan to restore the balance with the Supreme Court. Please take the time to review this plan and let me know what you think!

CONFIDENTIAL STRATEGY MEMO

The three branches of government were created to be equal and balancing, yet with a radical president, a weak congress, and a Supreme Court willing to invent legal interpretations that protect the President’s left-wing legacy, the balance has been absent and our nation has taken a turn for the worse.

Luckily, we have all that we need to restore the balance: the ballot box.

Left: 2016 U.S. Senate Races — Right: 2012 Presidential Electoral College Results

OBJECTIVES: (1) ELECT A CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT; (2) PROTECT THE SENATE MAJORITY.

To maximize our resources, I’ve identified five states with competitive U.S. Senate races and critical Electoral College points needed to send a CONSERVATIVE to the White House.

Ohio (18-Points), Pennsylvania (20-Points), & Wisconsin (10-Points): These three Senate races are similar in that they all profile a conservative incumbent Senator that’s being challenged by an ultra-liberal candidate that lost statewide in 2010. These are critical races that we must carry in order to protect our Senate majority. They also deliver a critical 48 Electoral College points that would propel a conservative presidential nominee.

Florida (29-Points), & Nevada (6-Points): Florida and Nevada are similar in that these are both open seats. Senator Marco Rubio (FL) has forgone running for re-election since he’s running for President. Additionally, after targeting Senator Harry Reid as our #1 target for 2016, he has since wisely decided on retirement. These open seats present us with the opportunity to stack the Senate with even more constitutional conservative lawmakers in the mold of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee. Moreover these two states would deliver us the finals votes necessary to win back the White House!

We have begun interviewing and vetting the candidates to ensure: (1) adherence to fiscal responsibility and the U.S. Constitution, (2) ample grassroots support, (3) a credible campaign team that’s capable of winning a tough race.

As this plan develops further, I’ll update you. In the meantime, I must ask you for a financial contribution to support this massive, five-state campaign. You’ve seen our success over the years, but it has always been made possible by generous contributions from people like you. To sustain this campaign though, I need to find 100 more patriots that are able to commit to the Tea Party Honor Guard Partnership. Partners agree to make a monthly, recurring contribution to support our campaign. This allows me to create a budget around a reliable revenue stream, which is critical to putting this plan into motion. Will you join the Tea Party Honor Guard Partnership and commit to making a monthly, recurring donation?

Of course, I understand if a monthly commitment is too much. Would you possibly consider making an instant, one-time contribution to this fight? The time for complaining is over, it is time to put our money where our mouth is and hit the pavement if we want change! Join me by making an instant contribution right now:

Donate $500 INSTANTLY! ($100 per state)>>>

Donate $250 INSTANTLY! ($50 per state)>>>

Donate $100 INSTANTLY! ($20 per state)>>>

Donate $50 INSTANTLY! ($10 per state)>>>

Donate $35 INSTANTLY! ($7 per state)>>>

DONATE ANY AMOUNT INSTANTLY! >>>

 

Thank you for your time.

In Liberty,

Republican Party’s Fiascos


Justin O. Smith is a frequent contributor to this blog. I tell you this because every once in a while Justin’s Father Robert makes a contribution. This is one of those cases.

Robert Smith has become weary of politicians in Congress NOT making decisions for the good of the citizens (i.e. WE THE PEOPLE) of the United States of America. Robert assumes that Conservatives still have the Founding Fathers’ vision of Liberty and Freedom for Americans whose government is supposed to be “… as the Founding Fathers recognized, to protect people’s inalienable rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness.” (The italic text is a quote from: The American Right, the Purpose of Government, and the Future of Liberty; By Craig Biddle; The Objective Standard, Winter 2011, Vol. 6, No. 4.)

President Abraham Lincoln fought a war to preserve the Union of the United States of America to preserve and establish a more perfect union of States in which the role of government, in line with the vision of the Founding Fathers, was pronounced in November 1963 a few months after the Battle of Gettysburg:

We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” (LINCOLN’S FAMOUS QUOTE AND ITS INSPIRATION [closing words of his Gettysburg Address, delivered on November 19, 1863]; quote/counterquote; 3/2/15)

Robert has correctly surmised that our Congress has forsaken this original vision transforming America from a people oriented Representative Republic into a ruling elite acting government telling people how to live and how to believe that what humanity feels is the best virtue of morality. I surmise Robert’s target of unconstitutional elitists are the Democrats and the GOP Establishment.

Republican Party’s Fiascos

By Robert Smith

Sent: 6/23/2015 5:17 AM

Our Senators and Representatives are sent to Washington by “we the people” to read the bills presented to them. It is then incumbent on them to explain to us, their constituents, and the contents of those bills, along with the reasons that they are either good or bad for our country.

Congress recently passed the Trade Promotion Authority bill, in part, for greater transparency and so we can read it. In other words, do their job and read it for them.

I do not need to read the bill, simply from understanding that it opens an easier path for passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership through a simple majority vote.; I do not need to read bills, such as these, in order to know that they are not in the best interests of our country. All one needs to do is to view the results from the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the ensuing mass exodus of our U S companies to other countries.

Since our Senators and Representatives cannot, or will not, do their jobs, we need to fire them. To rid ourselves of our Representatives is relatively easy, since every two years they seek re-election. With our Senators, it is more complicated, since their terms are for six years and in only 18 states have provisions to recall their Senators. Where does your state stand? Is it one of the 18 or not? If it is not take action ensure that your state will have the ability to recall your Senators.

It is time – it is past time – that we charge the State Legislatures with the task of legislating a procedure that enables us to recall our Senators. If our

Legislators cannot or will not do this they can be replaced in 2016.

I am fed up with the RINOs (Republican – In – Name – Only) that are holding positions in the House of Representatives and the Senate. So, as voters, review their past records and make certain that they are true conservatives before casting your vote for any one.

Today in a large part, many of our country’s problems stem from the people who are far too willing to take the words of liars or idiots or both; it is time for us to throw the liars and idiots out of office.

In all of my 89 years I have never seen so much apathy in the voters. It is as though they do not care about our country’s current condition and sad state of affairs. For the people who still love the USA, vote conservative and ensure the person you vote for is a true conservative.

No more RINO POTUS Nominations


RINO Alert

John R. Houk
© December 17, 2014
 
The Republican Establishment is beginning to slowly suggest their preferred candidates for the nomination of President for the November 2016 cycle. Honestly (and probably to the chagrin of Lefties) the only news I watch on TV is Fox News. And that network’s subliminal suggestions have been Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. Both former Governors but both with long elements of Left Wing compromises.
 
I was extremely dissatisfied with the GOP nominating Romney for 2012. I did vote for him; however it was a between a rock-and-a-hard-place vote. I was any person but Obama voter. Romney has been indicating some stealth hints considering a 2016 run. God Forbid!
 
If the Republican Establishment succeeds in re-nominating for the 2016 election cycle, I am NOT voting for him. Neither will I vote for any Democrat. I will be voting for a Third Party candidate even if it is a wasted vote. The idiocy of the GOP Establishment of business as usual and the Dems Left Wing agenda are no choices for a fiscal and social Conservative.
 
Since I have experienced the idiocy of supporting Establishment candidates in 2008 and 2012, if the GOP nominates another alternative to Romney but with the same RINO credentials, I will not be voting for that person either. It is my opinion that Jeb Bush’s Conservative bona fides are suspect to be pro-RINO.
 
Now Jeb may not be as much as a RINO as Romney but he is probably enough of a RINO to perpetuate some of Obama’s America transformation. He would more than likely have a Dem-like immigration policy doctored up to fool voters, keep funneling money to Planned Parenthood funding abortion, abandon Christian morality in not fighting to reverse the courts mandate to allow same-sex marriage, remove everything Christian from taxpayer supported institutions, forcing Christians to do business with Biblically ungodly homosexuals under threat of a civil suit, increasing the deficit, keeping Obamacare rather than more Free Market medical reforms and on and on.
 
I’d have to do some more exploring into Jeb Bush to pin down some exact criticism rather than suspicions. Michelle Malkin has a good start toward a Jeb examination. Ironically I found this Malkin opinion piece in GOP USA. Perhaps that is an indication that GOP USA is not an Establishment dominated tool of the Republican Party.

Jeb Bush: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Waterboy
 
By Michelle Malkin
December 17, 2014 6:55 am
 
Allow me to unite America’s left, right and center in just three words: No, Jeb, No.
 
Former GOP Florida governor Jeb Bush made the obvious official this week when he announced on Facebook that he’s “actively exploring” a 2016 White House run. Of course, he’s running. That’s what inveterate politicians do.
 
Well, I hate to break it to Jeb Inc. There’s no popular groundswell for Bush Part III. None, zip, nada. Independents, progressives and conservatives are all weary of the entrenched bipartisan dynasties that rule Washington and ruin America. Only in the hallowed bubble of D.C. and New York City elites does a Jeb Bush presidential bid make any sense.
 
Jeb’s indulgent (and ultimately doomed) enterprise has three privileged constituencies: Big Business, Big Government and Big Media. This iron triumvirate explains how the failed campaigns of so-called “pragmatic,” “thoughtful” and “moooooderate” liberal Republican candidates such as John McCain, Jon Huntsman and Bob Dole ever got off the ground. The “Reasonable Republican,” anointed and enabled by the statist Big Three, serves as a useful tool for bashing conservatives and marginalizing conservatism.
 
For Republicans who argue that Jeb is the most “electable” choice, I ask: What planet are you on? After two disastrous terms of Barack Obama’s Hope and Change Theater, the last thing the Republican Party needs is an establishment poster child for Washington business as usual. I mean, really? A third Bush who’s been working for his dad, his dad’s friends or the government since 1980?
 
A Beltway-ensconced scion so chummy with the Clinton family that he awarded close family friend — and potential 2016 nemesis — Hillary a “Liberty Medal” last year as chairman of the National Constitution Center?
 
That’s the GOP donor bigwigs’ “fresh idea” for “American Renewal?”
 
To blunt criticism from the grassroots base on the right, Jeb’s cheerleaders at the Wall Street Journal cite his “conservative” gubernatorial record of cutting taxes and privatizing jobs. So we’re supposed to swoon when a GOP governor acts like he’s supposed to act on standard, bread-and-butter GOP issues? Whoop-de-doo.
 
One thing Jeb’s promoters won’t be emphasizing: Over the course of his eight years in the Florida governor’s mansion, government spending skyrocketed. The libertarian Cato Institute notes that Florida general fund spending “increased from $18.0 billion to $28.2 billion during those eight years, or 57 percent” and that “(t)otal state spending increased from $45.6 billion to $66.1 billion, or 45 percent.”
 
Like big-spending father, like big-spending big brother, like big-spending second son and lil’ brother.
 
I have another interpretation of Bush’s “conservative” Florida years: It’s called biding his time. Yes, Jeb put in his obligatorily GOP service on taxes and the Second Amendment. Not because he was wedded to deep-rooted principles, mind you. But because the “conservative” facade will come in handy during the primaries when he has to defend radical, divisive positions on his two defining national policy issues: Education and immigration.
 
Jeb Bush’s agenda is neither left nor right. His agenda is the agenda of the D.C. headquarters of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Remember: The chamber is a politically entrenched synod of bipartisan special interests. As I’ve said before, these fat cats do not represent the best interests of American entrepreneurs, American workers, American parents and students or Americans of any race, class or age who believe in low taxes and limited government.
 
The chamber’s business is the big business of the Beltway, not the business of mainstream America. And so is Jeb Bush’s.
 
The Chamber supports mass amnesty for cheap, illegal alien workers. Jeb Bush supports mass legalization of cheap, illegal alien workers and accuses those of us who oppose it on constitutional, sovereignty, security and fairness grounds of lacking “compassion.”
 
The Chamber supports the top-down, privacy-undermining, local autonomy-sabotaging Common Core racket. Jeb Bush spearheaded and profited from Common Core — and accuses those of us who oppose it of opposing academic excellence for our own children. Jeb’s problem isn’t just Common Core. It’s that he has no core. Instead of retreating from the costly federalized scheme that has alienated teachers, administrators and parents of all backgrounds, Bush has doubled down with his Fed Ed control freak allies and corporate donors.
 
The reign of Obama ushered in massive cronyism, corporate favoritism and Boomtown boondoggles galore. We’ve lived too long already under the boot of arrogant D.C. bureaucrats who’ve exploited their power to serve their friends.
 
No more business as usual: Stop Jeb Bush.

A Risen Conservatism will End RINOs & Dem Damage


Vote Conservative Republican

Dajjal posted a comment to the post “Dems Betraying America – It will be Stopped One Way or Another” on the NCCR blog dated 12/11/14. The post with that title was really some thoughts on a post by Danny Jeffrey entitled “Thirty Pieces of Silver” originally placed on Danny’s blog Fix Bayonets.

 

This probably an injustice to Danny’s post: The Thirty Pieces of Silver post’s theme is that American politics has become too corrupted by fringe Left Democrats to return to the principles of the vision of the Founding Fathers. That irreversible political situation is made worse because the Establishment Republicans have colluded (wittingly or unwittingly) with the Dems that threaten the U.S. Constitution. Danny views America’s last hope is no-compromise Conservative Senator Ted Cruz. However, it is too late for Cruz too effect any change because the GOP Establishment will do everything to prevent a Cruz election as President.

 

Since not even a great Conservative as Senator Cruz can undo Leftist damage America is only left with one option to rid the Republic established in the USA. That option is for a coup d’état ridding America of Leftist leadership authority.

 

In my post “Dems Betraying America” I concurred with Danny that a coup might indeed occur; however I refused to believe a grassroots movement either among Conservatives taking over the Republican Party on a County by County and State by State manner could lead to Constitutional changes that could reverse Dem damage to what has made America exceptional.

 

As you will read Dajjal totally disagrees that a coup will occur in the USA.

Reblogged this on Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back and commented:

While I acknowledge the validity of the pessimism expressed in the citations below [Blog Editor: I am guessing both my view and Danny’s], I absolutely reject suggestions of military coups & violent revolutions. The officer corps has been purged of patriots and the armed forces have superior organization and fire power. Abandon those damn fool dreams entirely.

Barry Morris Goldwater was nominated in ’64 because the party base recognized the truth and intrinsic merit of his platform. He won in the face of total opposition from the establishment. He lost the general election because the party establishment abandoned him.

 

Ronald Reagan was nominated and won because the electorate recognized the truth and intrinsic merit of his platform and the ‘crats re-nominated an accursed traitor who hurt this nation immensely. The nomination of George H.W. Bush was a fatal flaw, an abandonment of principle in favor of expediency. We must learn from that error so that we never repeat it.

 

If it is not too late, it soon will be. Discover the election schedule and run a full slate of Conservatives for GOP precinct delegates. Run a Conservative slate for delegates to the state convention. Nominate Conservatives to the RNC and retake control of the party.

Pick one principled, articulate, aggressive Conservative such as Ted Cruz and back him to the hilt. Organize and motivate voters in the early primaries and caucuses. Tell the nattering nabobs of negativism who preach lifting the ‘crat’s tail and inserting our tongues to go to Hell and be damned. Plug your ears to the siren song of “the only one who can win”.

 

The prospective nominee must build an organization capable of selecting able minded and willing Conservative nominees for all open House & Senate seats and build a Conservative slate. Every RINO who voted for cloture on Obama Don’t Care and other damaging acts of Obamination must have principled, articulate and aggressive primary opposition.

Learn the forgotten lesson of ’80 – victory is not absolute and final. Every election cycle must be hotly contested. RINOs & LibTurds must be replaced with Conservatives. Conservative principles must be clearly expressed and successfully marketed. Balkanization & identity politics must be rejected. The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance: we can never go back to sleep.
