Yes, thanks to Texas Democrats, Governor Rick Perry may very well have move to frontrunner status for the GOP presidential nomination. Of course, it’s very early to project anything for a race in 2016 although the pundits in the land of OZ claim Hillary Clinton is not only the presumptive nominee for the Donkey Party she is a shoe in to reoccupy the White House with hubby Bubba.
Some might claim a victory for Texas Dems, they sure are celebrating down in Austin. However, of all the people you might wish to attack politically Rick Perry isn’t likely one of them. And it didn’t take long for the Lone-Star Governor to go on attack himself as the following advertising video suggests:
Democrats in Austin may not be cheering so loud down the road as their shenanigans may very well backfire. The Governor is now in the driver’s seat and he’s pointing his 18-wheeler straight at his antagonizers. Perry will evidently receive plenty of support as even the Lefty New York times and the very Liberal Alan Dershowitz have come to his defense although they point out their disdain for him.
Not long ago Hillary Clinton told the world that her and Bill were “dead broke” upon leaving the White House. She has a way with words and facts.
Quite recently Hillary is out and about giving speeches for between 200 and 200 thousand dollars plus expenses which include her entourage, hotel suites, meals, flights on private jets and even for her advance team to ensure her heinous is given the royal treatment.
Nevada reporter Jon Ralston offered an epic rant to viewers Monday when he spared no insults against Hillary Clinton and her “royal” speaking demands:
Mr. Ralston may think America doesn’t have kings or queens but try telling that to the Clinton’s and Obama’s who spend taxpayer money on themselves, family, and friends at alarming rates.
Senate Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell is running for reelection and I can only hope he loses his primary fight with Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin. This is a long shot as McConnell has the election experience, the war chest and boots on the ground.
The erstwhile Senator also has something else – a nasty streak and anyone who gets in his way will get run over, at least twice. He’s known to say:
“If someone flicks a pebble at you, you hurl a boulder back at him.”
That statement may be mild. National Review is reporting that any Republicans, particularly those from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), will receive the “death penalty” and their GOP ad firm, Jamestown Associates has been blacklisted for working with their fund. A former aide who has seen team McConnell up front says it’s beyond very personal.
“These are not guys to be trifled with. They are burn it down, piss on it, then blow it up kind of guys.”
McConnell’s former chief of staff Josh Holmes offers a startling analogy concerning the Senate Conservative Fund (SCF).
“The SCF has been wandering around the country destroying the Republican Party like a drunk who tears up every bar they walk into. The difference this cycle is that they strolled into Mitch McConnell’s bar, and he doesn’t throw you out, he locks the door.”
McConnell is now battling his Democrat opponent Bevin and claims his election is about the survival of the Republican Party. Really? I think guys like McConnell and his cast of RINOs throughout Congress are about the total, unequivocal destruction of Conservative values within the GOP and anything connected with a Tea Party organization which the GOP establishment fears and loathes.
The Senate minority leader can hardly run on his record as Harry Reid and Democrats get anything they want so he needs to resort to tactics that are vicious, attacking his opponents through a dirty campaign. Oh and he’ll invoke the word Conservative frequently as do liars like John McCain and Lindsey Graham have done. These cowards are nothing close to Conservative, they are establishment hacks attempting to preserve their careers in the good ol’ boys club within the GOP.
Team McConnell is leaving no stone unturned in their scorched earth policy to seek and destroy anything in the way. One question would be about the intimidation work going on and how did they get to Rand Paul who has endorsed McConnell? This seems odd for a guy who won election without the backing of McConnell who endorsed Paul’s primary opponent. Former Conservative Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) was quietly attacked by McConnell, his funds dried up but Paul intervened and ran for that seat.
Rand Paul proved the McConnell machine could be beat but why did he decide to take the very early step to endorse the erstwhile Senate Minority “Leader” in the 2014 election cycle? Was he being intimidated from within? Promised certain things? Notice how Paul was relatively quiet during the shutdown fiasco. Jesse Benton, Paul’s former campaign manager, is a top McConnell soldier now, how did that occur?
When Benton told Rand Paul he was considering taking the job, Paul barely hesitated. “Oh, you got to take it,” Paul told Benton in a phone call, according to Benton. “If they’re interested in you and you think it’s the right fit for you, you got to take it . . . It’s good for you and it’s good for me.’” I get it, it’s all about me, my career, forget the principles I got elected on, I’m in the club now I have to play along to get along.
It takes some guts to survive in DC and if you’re a freshman Conservative you will first be appeased, then questioned and if you don’t cooperate relentlessly attacked. It’s the establishments way and why America has $17 trillion in debt, runaway spending and Republicans quietly working behind the scenes to obtain amnesty for lawbreakers.
We’ve seen John McCain openly attack Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul. When a rabid animal is cornered they fight to the death. In this case establishment Republicans fight to avoid their political death, the loss of power and the comfort of their club paid for by American taxpayers.
Some will point out that McConnell receives a 100% rating from the American Conservative Union. Forget that, I no longer rely on those numbers from an organization who has lost it’s way and should change it’s name and remove “Conservative.” A look at the Heritage Scorecard will show McConnell at 80%, 20 points lower than ACU. Why is that? Worse yet the Senate Republican average is at 67%. An indication that Mitch McConnell is no leader and must be stopped.
