American Gigolos (GOP Watch List, Part 2) by Ann Coulter

Congressional Republicans are just nincompoops. The only thing they know is: Imitate Reagan — from 30 years ago. It would make more sense for Republicans to demand that all air traffic controllers be fired for no reason than it is for them to keep treating Putin like it’s 1950 and he’s Stalin.

Americans thought electing a trash-talking billionaire reality TV star to the presidency of the #$%^ United States would finally be enough to convey the message that they hate both political parties. If anything, they hate Republicans more.

But the Uni-Party can’t learn. The bureaucracy, the judiciary and congressional Republicans are all openly working for the “Resistance.” It’s President Trump against the world.

In Congress, the hate for Trump is personal. Not only did he throw a grenade into politicians’ little do-nothing club, but his very existence destroys their self-conception as people with a set of skills.

While Trump was making billions of dollars building skyscrapers, developing golf courses and starring on a hit reality TV show, members of Congress were slowly working their way up the political ladder — interning at think tanks and congressional offices, taking some small government job, then running for the House or Senate, and, hopefully, marrying a woman with a large inheritance.

A stunning number of senators and congressmen are supported by rich wives — Sens. John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Richard Blumenthal, John Kerry and Ron Wyden, and Reps. Michael McCaul, Scott Peters and Paul Ryan, to name a few. Is there any other profession with as high a percentage of men sponging off their wives’ inheritances?

Records: Soros Fund Execs Funded Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John McCain, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham in 2016

Employees of a hedge fund founded by the king of the Institutional Left, billionaire and Democratic Party mega-donor George Soros, donated tens of thousands of dollars to top Republicans who fought against President Donald Trump in 2016, donation records compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show.

Soros Fund Management, a former hedge fund that serves now as an investment management firm, was founded by progressive billionaire George Soros in 1969. It has risen to become one of the most profitable hedge funds in the industry. Employees of the firm are heavily involved in backing political candidates giving millions upon millions to groups that were supporting failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton for the presidency.

But more importantly, perhaps, than the unsurprising giant lump sums of cash funneled into Democratic Party and Clinton coffers is the revelation thanks to the Center for Responsive Politics that employees of the Soros firm—now run by his son Robert Soros—pumped tens of thousands of dollars into the campaigns of top anti-Trump Republicans over the course of 2016.

In total, executives with the Soros-founded company pushed $36,800 into the coffers of these GOP candidates just this past cycle. That does not include Super PACs or campaign committees, which saw tens of thousands of dollars more. While these numbers for Republicans pale in comparison to the millions upon millions poured into Democratic groups, causes, and candidates, it is significant that Soros executives are making a play inside the GOP. Perhaps even more significant is the type of Republican they aim to prop up: pro-amnesty, pro-open borders on trade, and generally speaking anti-Trump. A pattern emerges when looking at the policies of the Republicans that these Soros Fund Management executives support financially.

Sarah Palin: Trump Movement Began with the GOP Establishment’s ‘Shocking Betrayals’ of Tea Party Voters (Audio)

Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin was a guest on the special Thanksgiving holiday edition of Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow.

Palin said the 2016 election was vindication for “me and millions of other Americans who, for years and years, have been saying smaller, smarter government is the answer, and we need someone who is politically incorrect enough to say what needs to be said, and do what needs to be doin’, to fix the problems that we’re in in our nation.”

Marlow said he thought Trump’s campaign theme of “draining the swamp” in DC was “channeling Sarah Palin.”

She countered that the concept was “pretty universal, when people understand what our Constitution actually means, and that it is to restrain federal government, and not incentivize growth of the federal government – more control, more shackles over the people.”

“So draining the swamp is so necessary on the local government level, the state government level, and of course the federal government level. We need to not allow the will of the people to be ignored, and the only way to do that is, presently the status quo is so far from wanting to drain the swamp that we knew ‘the status quo has got to go.’ I’ve kinda been preaching that for a few decades now, ever since the little local city council seats that I was elected to, but I’m not the only one who believes that, obviously,” Palin said.

Four Biggest Winners and Losers of 2016

Trump’s massive upset victory hands validation to backers who saw the potential early — shame to NeverTrumpers.

Other than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the 2016 presidential race left other winners celebrating — and losers crying — in its wake.

Of course, the biggest winners were the American people — and the biggest losers the international globalists who earn their living off of policies that too often lead to the American people’s economic devastation.

The Losers
Ohio Gov. John Kasich

Kasich ran his primary campaign against Trump — even after his primary campaign was over. Indeed, Kasich gave a veritable masterclass in being a sore loser, turning his vehement opposition to Trump into a permanent affectation.

Kasich was clearly counting on a crushing Trump loss, after which he could play the principled, liberal-friendly Republican and waltz right into the GOP nomination in 2020. Trump went on to win his state comfortably without Kasich’s support or vote. The Ohio governor wrote in Arizona Sen. John McCain for president — the GOP nominee won Ohio by roughly 9 points.

The National Review Editorial Board

In its staunch opposition to Trump, the National Review proved itself to be as out of touch and elitist as the liberals it frequently took to task. The magazine had forgotten its roots. No longer willing to stand athwart history yelling stop, it resigned itself to standing meekly by muttering not so fast.

Ed Rollins: ‘Bush Wing’ of the GOP Is ‘Definitely Gone’

Campaign director for Reagan-Bush ’84 says globalist Republicans ‘will not be coming back’ in 2020.

Republican campaign consultant Ed Rollins said that the “Bush wing” of the GOP is gone and won’t be coming back anytime soon during a Tuesday interview on “The Laura Ingraham Show.”

Rollins, the co-chairman of the pro-Trump Great America PAC and formerly the national campaign director for Ronald Reagan’s 1984 presidential campaign, predicted Trump supporters will walk out on the Republican Party if GOP leaders refuse to listen to their voices.

“I think the Bush wing is definitely gone and obviously it’s not coming back in the short run,” Rollins told LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham. “There were very significant players who didn’t get where the country was, and they underestimated the Trump support. They underestimated the message that was out there.”

Saying that there will be no “automatic heir apparent” to the Republican Party if the divisive 2016 election ends with a Trump loss, Rollins expressed his concern over whether House Speaker Paul Ryan would “compromise our principles” and cooperate with Hillary Clinton to move her agenda forward.

“If that occurs, I think obviously there’s not going to be much left — it’s over,” Rollins said. “And I think we’ve become a congressional party as opposed to a presidential party. I think Trump jumped in front of that, took advantage of it, did a very effective job of communicating with the grassroots about the problems that they face. I don’t know if the Establishment Republicans will pick that up when this is all over.”

No amnesty for 2 ‘treasonous’ open-borders Republicans

Immigration watchdog makes 1st-ever Dem endorsement against those ‘undermining Trump’

Citing their support for illegal immigration and the rising influx of Muslim refugees, one of the nation’s most hawkish immigration lobbying groups has launched a new strategy to remove John McCain, R-Ariz., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., from office.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, also called ALIPAC, is endorsing their Democrat opponents in the Nov. 8 general election.

That’s a first for the organization. In its 12-year history ALIPAC has never endorsed a single Democrat.

But it makes sense, said ALIPAC President William Gheen, given the two lawmakers’ persistent support for amnesty for illegals, their support for President Obama’s bulging numbers of Muslim refugees being secretly funneled into hundreds of U.S. cities and towns, and their efforts to elect Hillary Clinton by “undermining the campaign of Donald Trump.”

“If Republicans like McCain and Ryan are going to act like and help Democrats, why not elect Democrats and try for better Republicans next time?” asked Gheen.

In the same vein, Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla., issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday that if Ryan could not give his full backing to Trump then he could not back Ryan as Speaker.

Ingraham Angle: Ryan Runs Against Trump

Pro-globalization wing of the GOP relies on a fantasy constituency.

A memo to the anti-Trump, pro-globalization wing of the GOP:

The day after a strong debate performance by your party’s nominee, you decided not to celebrate it, but to dismiss and distract from it. You called your friends in the press and told them about “the coming GOP stampede” away from Trump. If you succeed in helping Democrats elect Hillary Clinton, you — not he — will be held responsible for losing the Supreme Court and busting up the Republican Party.

Regarding your “constituency” within the party, you have an outsized imagination. Consider the facts:

There were 31,183,841 votes cast in the 2016 GOP nominating process.

Marco Rubio got 3,515,576 votes, or 11.3 percent.

John Kasich got 4,290,448 votes, or 13.8 percent.

Jeb Bush got 286,694 votes, or 0.2 percent.

So Team Globalization garnered a whopping 26 percent of the vote.

Ted Cruz alone got 7,822,100 votes, or 25.1 percent.

Trump got 14,015,993 votes, or 44.9 percent.

So the GOP voters, when given a chance, overwhelmingly rejected Team Globalization and all its pundits. And those voters are going to remember that Team Globalization (and its pundits) did everything possible to throw this election to Hillary.

The Bush Family’s Increasingly Democratic Legacy (Video)

GOP royals record of broken pledges, tax increases, open borders, snuggling with Clintons and Obamas.

It was the snub heard ’round the world.

But the alleged snub was only initially heard by one person — a Democrat.

President George H. W. Bush allegedly told a Democrat that he wasn’t voting for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Instead, Bush would vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The elder Bush told Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, about his decision last week. The news spread like wildfire, with Kennedy Townsend fanning the flames.

Bush’s spokesman would not comment on the matter. But no denial was issued.

For the vast majority of Republicans who have rallied behind their party’s nominee — and even Republicans not enthusiastic about Trump — the news was disappointing. Donald Rumsfeld, who was part of the administrations of President Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush, said part of the reason was that the senior Bush was getting “up in years.” George H. W. Bush is 92.

In Hacked Emails, Colin Powell Dishes About Powerful Secret Society’s Dislike of Trump

This email, sent from Powell to former Canadian Attorney General Peter MacKay on July 24th, shows Powell talking about how the Bohemian Grove attendees in general are planning to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

LawNewz has obtained a few most interesting emails from the archives of Colin Powell’s Gmail account, which were leaked en masse on Tuesday night. What stands out is that they relate to his experiences attending the secretive, shadowy Bohemian Grove encampment this past July. Bohemian Grove was described in a 2011 Washington Post article by Elizabeth Flock as a gathering of “some of the richest and most powerful men in the world gather at a 2,700 acre campground in Monte Rio, Calif., for two weeks of heavy drinking, super-secret talks, druid worship, […] and other rituals.” Only one of these rituals, shot by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, exists on video.

The theoretical end game of the retreat is “to escape the ‘frontier culture,’ or uncivilized interests, of common men.” Members and guests reportedly include former Vice President Dick Cheney, Walter Cronkite, Clint Eastwood, and most Republican presidents since Dwight Eisenhower. So it’s no surprise that Powell is on their list of elites, but what is surprising is how willing he is to dish on the meetings.

LifeZette: New Emails Expose Close Relationship Between Lindsey Graham and Top Hillary Aides

New emails expose affinity between top Hillary deputies and NeverTrump GOP senator.

Long before Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) became a prominent NeverTurmper, he appears to have been a favorite Republican among the Clinton camp.

According to emails obtained by Citizens United through a Freedom of Information Act request and first given to LifeZette, Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band referred to Graham as the “bff” of longtime Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin in November 2009.

At the time, Band was traveling with former president Bill Clinton to a conference in Israel and mentioned in an email to Abedin, then the deputy chief of staff at the State Department, that Graham was at the event.
