I think I have a bad case of RINOitis!

First we keep hearing about ANOTHER Mitt Romney run, and now, it seems assured Jeb Bush will seek the GOP nomination! No wonder I feel ill. So does The Lonely Conservative

Jeb Bush. Ugh. His son says he’s seriously considering a run for President in 2016. What could possibly go wrong?

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is “moving forward” on a potential 2016 White House run and it appears more likely he will enter the Republican field, according to his son, who’s running for office in Texas.

George P. Bush told ABC’s “This Week” that his father is “still assessing” a presidential bid, but suggested it was more likely that he would seek the White House this time. The ex-governor declined to run for president in 2012 despite encouragement from Republicans.

How appealing is this news? It is like this!

House “Condemns” Obama For Breaking Law In Bergdhal Deal, But Doesn’t Actually Do Anything To Him

Here’s How The House Just Condemned Obama – Western Journalism

.
…………

.
On Tuesday, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to condemn President Obama for violating federal law after Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was exchanged for five Taliban leaders held at the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The lower chamber voted Tuesday 249-163 to pass HR 644, the title of which reads:

“Condemning the Obama administration’s failure to comply with the lawful statutory requirement to notify Congress before releasing individuals detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and expressing national security concerns over the release of five Taliban leaders and the repercussions of negotiating with terrorists.”

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel testified before the House Armed Services Committee in June that negotiations to transfer five Taliban detainees had been ongoing for months.

In August, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report detailing how the Department of Defense violated the Fiscal Year 2014 Defense Appropriations Act by not reporting to Congress the Bergdahl/Taliban plan.

The resolution was introduced by Republicans Scott Rigell of Virginia and Reid Ribble of Wisconsin, and Democrats John Barrow of Georgia and Nick Rahall of West Virginia. Both Democrats are in competitive re-election campaigns.

Rigell condemned the Obama administration in a press release shortly after the vote, saying “The President ignored the law by failing to notify Congress of this serious decision.”

The thirty day notification requirement is not a perfunctory administrative action; it is not like breaking a lease with your landlord. The law exists to provide Congress time to consider serious national security decisions such as releasing terrorists like the Taliban five.

Barrow added in a press release of his own, “This transfer poses a major national security risk, and it complicates our efforts to combat terrorism worldwide. The President cannot treat congress as an afterthought or adversary, particularly with decisions impacting our national security and especially since, in this case, Congress could have helped the President get this decision right.”

As a resolution, it does not have the force of law and will not be considered in the Senate.

Ann Coulter just loves her some establishment GOP!

Ann Coulter tries, once again, to scold us for daring to improve the Republican Party. I guess we just do not know our place do we? How dare we, the people, even dream of getting some newer, more Conservative Republicans?  Right Ann?

When a U.S. president is using the IRS to terrify his political enemies, destroying American health care and opening our southern border to millions of future welfare-collecting, Democratic voters from the Third World, why is a dime’s worth of money being wasted on trying to replace the Republican senator from Mississippi with a slightly different Republican?

There she goes again folks, there she goes again.Ann Coulter gets irked when any Republican challenges an incumbent Republican. Why? Would Coulter not prefer a more Conservative Representative or Senator? I know, I know, Coulter says she is all about winning elections. Well, so am I, So are the supporters of Chris McDaniels and other “Tea Party” Republicans challenging incumbent Republicans. It is all about winning. But why is it that Coulter never scolds establishment Republicans, many who have failed to stand up for Conservative principles in the past, for vowing to “destroy” Tea Party challengers?

If Chris McDaniel’s supporters want to show what bad-ass studs they are, how about walking across the Mississippi River and getting Tom Cotton elected in Arkansas? He’s running against a Democrat, fellas! Or how about walking a little farther down the river, to Louisiana, and helping Bill Cassidy take out another Democrat? Those two Democrats, Sens. Mark Pryor and Mary Landrieu, are about to win re-election in red states — despite voting for Obamacare and amnesty. And tea partiers are still focused like a laser beam on making Republican senators more perfect, rather than beating Democrats.

Well I am sure McDaniel supporters would like to see those two win office, I know I would, But who says tea partiers in those states are NOT going to vote for those Republicans? The problem here is that Coulter does not believe Conservatives can win. Look at the last election. First Coulter was all about Chris Christie or bust. Then it was Mittmainia for her. Coulter bashed Rick Perry, who actually IS a Conservative in favor of Mitt Romney, the candidate the Democrats wanted to run against. So, forgive me if I am not ready to march to Ann Coulter’s marching orders anytime soon. There is a deeper issue here though, one that escapes the wannabe elitist in Coulter

Yes, it’s annoying to see a Republican appeal to Democratic voters to save his seat.

See, Ann just does not get it. Chochran campaign did not “appeal” to Black voters Ann, they openly race baited against McDaniels, calling him a racist. Is Ann Coulter OK with that? I think most Tea Party folks would have been OK with supporting Chochran if he had won the run off. But when he LOST the primary to McDaniels, and then pulled out the Race Card, well that is hardly a sign of anyone that ought to hold a Senate seat now is it? It is deplorable enough when Democrats go there, but when a Republican does it, well it makes me wonder what else that Republican will do to retain power. It is about principles Ann, maybe grasping that is just above your character level? This is simple folks. Whoever wins a Republican primary ought to support the winner, no matter who wins. But the GOP establishment seems to care more about holding on to power than about America.

We have heard rhetoric like Coulter’s before. We heard it when we were told we had to support Charlie Crist, who has since shown what a bottom feeder he is. We hear it constantly. Milton Wolf should not dare challenge Pat Roberts in Kansas, we should all just line up and vote for who the NRSC, and NRCC tell us too right Ann? And then, when these establishment candidates forget their campaign promises and go wishy-washy, and let us down, AGAIN, then what? I guess we can all have fun looking at Ann Coulters shocked face huh?

What? You mean the establishment let us down again?

What? You mean the establishment let us down again?

Senate GOP Leaders Paid For Mississippi Runoff Ads Accusing Conservatives Of Being Racists

Confirmed: Senate Republican Leaders Paid For Attacks Against Conservatives – Red State

.

.
I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what we all suspected.

The advertisements attacked Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel and painted conservative Republicans and tea party activists as racists. According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour backed group called Mississippi Conservatives.

Mississippi Conservatives, in turn, was funded in part by Sally Bradshaw of the RNC’s Growth and Opportunity Project, former RNC Chairman and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, the United States Chamber of Commerce, and the political action committees created for Senators Mitch McConnell ($50,000), John Cornyn ($50,000), Rob Portman ($25,000), Bob Corker ($25,000), and Roy Blunt ($5,000).

Interestingly, Sally Bradshaw and Henry Barbour (Haley Barbour’s nephew) worked on the autopsy of the 2012 GOP loss.

Mailer Urges Democrats To Vote For RINO Collins In Georgia’s 10th Congressional District Runoff Election

Mailer Urges Democrats To Cross Over For Mike Collins In GA-10 – Atlanta Journal-Constitution

.

.
Could Georgia’s 10th Congressional District runoff take a page from the Mississippi U.S. Senate race?

Tim Bryant spoke on the radio the other day about a mailer he received urging Democrats to vote for trucking executive Mike Collins in the Republican runoff in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Paul Broun. Collins is running against minister Jody Hice, whose comments about Islam, women and gays have caused a stir.

A reader sent us the mailer itself, which we present above. It was attached to an absentee ballot application. The argument:

“Due to the gerrymandering of our Congressional district, it is nearly impossible for a Democrat to get elected… We, as citizens of the 10th Congressional District, cannot afford a Congressman like Jody Hice. Why you ask? Here are just a few reasons why Hice is too radical to represent us in Washington.”

The mailer does not say who paid for it – and the only reported outside spending on mailers in the race has been by a gun rights group for Hice – so we can’t say for sure it is the Democrats. Hice was willing to assume in a fundraising appeal:

“Democrats are trying to do in Georgia what they did in Mississippi. We must not allow liberals to decide another Republican election.”

He’s referring to the Thad Cochran-Chris McDaniel GOP runoff last month, in which crossover votes from black Democrats appeared to provide the incumbent senator’s slim margin of victory.

More Proof The National Republican Senatorial Committee Funded Racist, Anti-Tea Party, Anti-McDaniel Ads In Mississippi

More Proof The NRSC Funded Racist Anti-Tea Party Anti-McDaniel Ads In Mississippi – Gateway Pundit

Last week we learned this…

Former GOP Governor Haley Barbour Was Behind Racist Anti-Tea Party Pro-Cochran Ads In Mississippi

The former governor’s group paid for the racist radio ads.

.

.
FOX News reporter Ainsley Earhardt broke the news on Hannity that that the racist, anti-Tea Party pro-Cochran ads that played on black radio stations in Mississippi were paid for by former Republican governor Haley Barbour’s super-PAC.

Then we found out this…

The NRSC is linked to the racist anti-Tea Party ads in Mississippi.

.
………………….

.
And, now there’s more evidence the NRSC funded these racist anti-Tea Party ads…

Got.News has more proof that the NRSC funded the racist anti-Tea Party ads in Mississippi against conservative Chris McDaniel.

Gotnews.com has exclusively obtained another “All Citizens for Mississippi” radio ad from conservative media consultant Rick Shaftan, who stands by his allegation that these ads were paid for by media buyer Jon Ferrell at National Media of Alexandria, Virginia using funds provided by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

The newly-surfaced 90 second ad features Arthur L. Siggers, who identifies himself in the ad as pastor of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church and makes similar racially-charged accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel to the ad featuring Bishop Ronnie Crudup of New Horizon Church International that Gotnews.com reported on Monday.

Tea Party Candidate Chris McDaniel: We’ve Found Over 5,000 Voter Irregularities Already

McDaniel Will Challenge Election Result – Boston Herald

.

.
The Republican who lost a primary runoff election to Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran said Friday he plans to challenge the results.

Chris McDaniel said his campaign found at least 5,000 irregularities in voting and that he will mount a legal challenge “any day now.”

In an interview with CNN, McDaniel said what matters is that fraud be uncovered where it exists and that many Mississippi residents “are very angry” because they think their votes in the June 24 primary were nullified by fraud.

Most of what McDaniel is describing as irregularities involved people who apparently voted in both the June 3 Democratic primary and the Republican runoff.

Mississippi does not register voters by party, but state law bans a person from voting in one party’s primary and another party’s runoff in the same cycle.

McDaniel said he’s pressing the challenge because, “it’s our responsibility … if the corruption is out there, to end it once and for all.” He did say that if the courts side against him, he would accept the outcome. But he would not say whether he would ultimately endorse Cochran for Senate in the general election.

Asked if he had any regrets about the divisive primary campaign and aftermath, McDaniel said he regretted the last two and a half weeks of the campaign when “they called me a racist, they race-baited.” He said Cochran’s campaign engaged in “scare” tactics by saying that if McDaniel were to become the next senator, “welfare would be cut off.”

An election challenge will be filed with the state Republican Party executive committee, as required by law. If the committee rejects a request for a new election, McDaniel could file an appeal with a state circuit court in a county where the campaign believes it has found voting irregularities, said state Sen. Michael Watson, an attorney who is working with the McDaniel campaign.
