5 Observations About Jeb Bush Running for President

Doug Ross @ Journal

In an utterly unsurprising development this week, Jeb Bush announced that he’s “actively exploring” a 2016 Presidential run.

Allow me to offer some perspective for the GOP Elites and others suffering from the fevered delusion that Jeb Bush might someday serve as President, in this universe or any other.

1. This is one situation where an open primary benefits conservatives: I contend that Democrats will turn out in droves — like there was an announcement for free government cheese at the mall — to vote against the Bush name. Heck, you and I have heard it for years: debate any policy position with a progressive and, no matter the facts, logic, history, and reason you muster — the inevitable result is what some call Bush Tourette’s Syndrome (i.e., “But- but- but- Bush!). This sad disease is sure to manifest itself in the primaries and amplify Democrat turnout like nothing we’ve seen since the dead walked the streets of Chicago in 1960 to cast ballots for John F. Kennedy.

2. Jeb Bush’s support for Amnesty is wildly unpopular among a huge majority of Americans: 88% of Republicans, 66% of independents and even 50% of Democrats believe that the border should be locked down before any Amnesty efforts are undertaken.

3. Bush’s support for a nationalized education curriculum (also known as “Common Core”) is generally despised. Only 34% of U.S. adults with children in elementary or secondary school support the federal takeover of educational standards.

4. Should Bush secure the nomination (which, if it occurs, we can thank John Boehner’s newly uncorked personal campaign contribution limits in the CRomnibus), I believe we’ll see the first viable third-party candidate since 1992. Reince Priebus, Karl Rove and the rest of the GOP Oligarchs should know that the Republican Party will be torn asunder by a Bush nomination. Guaranteed. A third party will result and the GOP will go the way of the Whigs — deservedly so.

5. BONUS: Jeb’s formula for victory:

Jeb Bush has no chance of winning the presidency — zero, none — and anyone who tells him otherwise is lying or a paid political operative. Or, more likely, both.

Fake Conservatives in the Media

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

Steve Malzberg of Newsmax TV calls people like CNN’s Margaret Hoover “phony Republicans” or RINOS (Republicans in Name Only). I prefer the term “fake conservatives.” Whatever we call them, the effect is still the same. By spouting liberal nonsense, they misrepresent the views of most Republicans or conservatives. Hoover joined her fellow CNN panelists in a “Hands up, don’t shoot” display based on the fiction that thug Michael Brown was surrendering to the police when he was shot.

Unfortunately, we have to add another name to the list of fake conservatives—George Will, who has been drifting leftward for years.

Over at National Review, once considered a flagship conservative publication, Will has a column on the Marxist dialectic in which he complains about too many people in jail or prison. He repeats the liberal canard about the U.S. being “a country with 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of its prisoners.” Veteran crime writer Michael Tremoglie says the figure reminds him of the environmentalist claim that America has five percent of the world’s population and uses 25 percent of its resources. The purpose, of course, is to suggest there’s something radically wrong with the American system, and that we have to answer to the rest of the world for our sins.

Tremoglie says that Will’s figure about alleged “overcriminalization” apparently originated with a left-wing lawyer. I found it cited by sources such as the NAACP and the Drug Policy Alliance. But when you seriously think about it, the figure, even if true, only conveys the basic notion that we have a criminal justice system that works. After all, anybody who watched what happened in Ferguson, with the riots and looting that followed Michael Brown’s shooting, has to know we have a criminal element in America. In that case, most didn’t go to jail.

Similarly, the figure about having five percent of the population and using 25 percent of the resources is actually a commentary on our successful economic system. Energy use reflects a modern economy that provides growth, not only for the American people but the world. Why should we be apologizing for that?

Like Hoover, Will abandoned the conservative ship years ago when he embraced the radical gay rights movement. In 2010, Will endorsed gays in the military on the ABC show “This Week” and smeared supporters of the Pentagon’s homosexual exclusion policy as unintelligent. That same year I noted that Hoover had joined the advisory council of GOProud, a so-called “gay conservative” group whose chairman, Christopher R. Barron, has a history of working for “centrist Republicans.”

Since that time, Will has joined the Fox News Channel as a commentator. Earlier this month, he jumped to Hillary Clinton’s defense on Fox News Sunday, after she had said we should be “respectful” and “empathize” with our enemies. Will gave a contorted explanation, concluding that “She was saying nothing particularly controversial, but she was saying it in an unfortunate way.”

On the December 14 “Fox News Sunday” program, he not only adopted the Senate Democratic narrative about the U.S. using “torture” against terrorists, but went off on a tangent, saying, “I hope the argument we are having about torture is going to seep over into domestic life because there’s a widespread practice in American prisons nowadays of prolonged solitary confinement, which has deranging effects on people and is, I think, indistinguishable from torture.”

What accounts for this unexpected attack on the prison system for isolating hardened criminals? It is apparent that George Will has fallen under the spell of some liberal somewhere. Criminals in solitary confinement are considered dangerous to others and are isolated for that reason. Curiously, Will says they are being tortured. As someone who understands the power of words, Will must know he is distorting the language.

Will has completely flipped traditional conservatism on its head—from sympathy for the crime victim to sympathy for the criminal.

Stranger than his leftist mumbo jumbo was how he began his column on crime. He wrote, “By history’s frequently brutal dialectic, the good that we call progress often comes spasmodically, in lurches propelled by tragedies caused by callousness, folly, or ignorance.” He went on to cite “the grand jury’s as yet inexplicable and probably inexcusable refusal to find criminal culpability in Eric Garner’s death on a Staten Island sidewalk…”

The “dialectic” is associated with Karl Marx, who saw history progressing through stages of conflict. Why on earth is George Will using such an approach?

We have commented on the Garner case many times, noting that the “chokehold” used by the police officer on Garner wasn’t a chokehold, and that he made the arrest by the book. Nevertheless, Will is fine with the liberal narrative, just as Margaret Hoover embraces the left-wing “Hands up, don’t shoot” fiction about Michael Brown’s death.

These are cases of Republicans/conservatives who have decided, for whatever reason, to spout liberal nonsense. That’s fine. But please call them liberals when they do that. And why not hire real conservatives to give some balance to the discussion?

I told Steve Malzberg this is why Newsmax TV and other alternative sources of news and information are getting more viewers by the day. People don’t like to be lied to about who or what represents the conservative point of view.

Mark Levin threatens to leave the GOP

On Monday’s Mark Levin Show, The Republicans had an opportunity Saturday night to stand up and vote against this Cromnibus bill, which funds Obamacare, amnesty and President Obama’s radical agenda, and they didn’t. Mark says he is one inch away from leaving the Republican Party if this keeps up and there are thousands of people who feel the same. The Constitution is in tatters and the Republican Party doesn’t even realize they’ve ceded their power to Obama. Congress goes on about an imperial president yet do nothing about it. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell should resign but their egos won’t let them. Instead, they’re cutting deals with the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid behind closed doors, pushing their agenda to the Republican establishment in Congress, and anyone that speaks out against it like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are attacked for not going along with the party. We are sick of voting for corrupt crony Republicans who won’t do what we voted for and continue to violate their oath of office and trample the constitution. Senators Mark Lee and Ted Cruz call in and speak with Mark to talk about the gridlock in Washington. They have to fight tooth and nail to vote on anything, while bills are negotiated behind closed doors rather than on the Senate floor.

Ted Cruz: They want to come after me? Knock yourself out

Mike Lee: We are not to blame for Harry Reid pushing through nominees

Betrayal from Both Sides of the Aisle?

By: Sher Zieve
Gulag Bound

Despite the fact that We-the-People gave the Republicans a mandate to stop Obama’s unconstitutional and country-destroying dictates, policies, and programs with a landslide victory in November, the current establishment majority–still in charge of the Marxist Democrat-Lite Party (aka Republicans)–still insists upon supporting Obama.

101118_mcconnell_obama_boehner_ap_3281

Message to the Congressional Republican Marxists: Your cover has been blown! You can no longer effectively use the excuse of, the media will be mean to us if we don’t support the first black president!

First of all, we-the-voters are well aware of media bias in favor of the Left. It has been that way for hundreds, if not thousands, of years dating back to–probably–even ancient Babylon. There, where diversity of opposition to God and tolerance for everything caused segregation of different cultural groups that entered the huge city-state and brought with them different languages and different gods. It’s likely the “liberal” scribes of the time–human nature hasn’t really changed over millennia–thought this was just wonderful and wrote about it. As Babylon became more impressed with itself, it built huge structures to glorify its work. And, then the kings began allowing more and more non-citizens (aka “illegals?”) who brought beliefs that were counter to the survival of the once Hebraic Babylon to enter and set up shop. And Babylon did not survive.

So, yes Republicans. Any of us who was born when real history was being taught in US schools knows why we are being destroyed and that the leftist media is helping. They will always be bitter towards anyone and anything that encroaches upon their Luciferian lust for power over humans. Their nature hasn’t changed. either. It is greed, corruption and all of the other accouterments that accompany an unquenchable thirst for power and money…our money.

Obama-constrainedAgain, Republicans, get rid of the, they won’t like us if we try to save the country and its people excuse. Not only did Republicans and Independents vote for you but, a large number of Democrats did too. Republicans who ran for the Senate won fully 40 % of the Hispanic vote, so you rationally can’t use the, Hispanics won’t like us excuse anymore either. That is, unless you’re referring to the illegal ones coming into our country via Obama’s now fully-open southern border. The Hispanic voters told you in Congress that they don’t want illegals in the country. However, too many of you have decided to supplant our loud and clear message of “STOP Obama!” with, the voters are telling us we have to work together to push through Obama’s anti-American messages and policies. Are you people insane or just too drunk with your new-found power to care what we want?

Or–on a more sinister note–have you been Democrat Marxist and Fascists all along—aka RINOs?

If you don’t start working for us and the reestablishment of our country–as founded–recall petitions to remove you from your newly-won offices will begin in all states that allow them; for Republicans as well as Democrats. Note: Very unfortunately, Ohio–which again placed Obama-lackey John Boehner into office–doesn’t have a recall process for federal offices. But, we plan to put pressure on all of our Senators to replace Obama’s Boehner as Speaker of the House.

Obama, Eric Holder and Valerie Jarrett have used their operatives to foment one riot after another in order to begin a race war. And they have been successful in their early ventures into California, New York, and–of course–Missouri. They are also bringing at least many thousands of gang members, Islamists, Africans, Muslims in general, as well as the Hispanic poor into our country illegally. This, as we know, is being done to replace the current legal American white majority with illegals. They are continuing to decimate our country and we elected you to stoop them. What about, stop the dictator in our White House who is destroying our country, is still unclear to you in Congress?

Obama-followers-and-truthThere is little doubt–if one truly observes what’s going on in the United States of America under Obama’s increasingly iron-fisted rule–that the USA is being “transformed” into something it was never intended to be…a non-country composed of multi-cultured, non-English speaking, un-or-under educated and America-hating miscreants from anti-USA countries around the world. These are “Obama’s people” and we Americans are being pushed out of our own country by the Obama syndicate’s dark and dystopian vision for us.

My own ancestors were here in the 1500s and fought in the American Revolution for the establishment of the United States of America. These great human beings vowed their wealth and all of their holdings to establish a country that was free for its citizens to own their own property, have the liberty and freedom to pursue their own dreams, and to worship God. Now, that country is being turned into a cesspool…by purposeful design brought about from a group of people bent upon destroying said freedom and liberty and raising their own flag of oppression and forced obedience to it. I predict that if this is allowed to continue, the Islamic flag will soon fly over the White House…establishing the personal prophecy Obama has set for himself. Obama was not born to build but, to destroy.

Short of a shooting civil war, we have tried everything else to rein in this despotic government. For too long, way too many of us paid little to no attention to what Obama really meant by his definition of the word “transform.“ We sat back and shook our heads while the Obama government was buying up thousands and thousands of assault rifles and billions of rounds of ammo–hollow point–to arm multiple branches of what was once our government. Against whom do you think they plan to use them? Is it time for us to move to the next level? Better think and answer quickly…we’re just about finished as a country and a people.

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
– Daniel 7:25
