Hundreds of former George W. Bush
officials set to endorse Biden: report

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 7/1/2020 1:07:56 PM

Hundreds of former officials who served under President George W. Bush are gearing up to endorse presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden. The group of officials—which include members of Mr. Bush’s cabinet and other senior officers—has reportedly formed a political action committee dubbed 43 Alumni for Biden. Mr. Bush was the 43rd president. “We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, one of the 43 Alumni organizers, who worked on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign and later in the General Services Administration, told Reuters.

Comments:

Globalists always side with their own; no surprise there. The Democrats at least have the decency to tell us who they are up front.

Have you or anyone else ever heard of Jennifer Millikin? Bush was not that popular a president. This is about headlines.

I supported and respected W. Did the same for Romney when I was called upon. Now this. Considering how both of these men stabbed me in the back and neglected me (I don't know which was worse) I suspect this will only galvanize Trump supporters like me.

I don’t want their ‘normal’. Do they really think this fascist push wouldn’t have happened under Romney or Paul or Rubio, or another Bush?? This is Obama and his ilk behind the scenes. They fool themselves with their smug condescension.

At the very least, the dims should feel queasy voting for a Bush-endorsed candidate, no? But then, I suppose TDS is even worse than BDS.

Is Missy Milliken referring to the “normalcy”of the Bush years? The Bush who took into an undeclared war with Iraq? A war predicated on finding weapons of mass destruction that weren’t there. And the Bush who took us into a war in Afghanistan in order to teach the Taliban a lesson? A war that quickly turned into nation building and that is still draining us 18 years later with no end in sight. The same Bush who remained mute during all of the lies, deceits and scandal of the Obama presidency? If tthat’s her idea of normal, I want none of it,

This is my position: Any person supporting Biden is endorsing the destruction of our capitalist republic. You cant sugar coat that fact. Biden may or may not be a barking leftists, but his handlers are and most of his appointments will be as well. This election is black and white. Do you want a free market constitutional republic or do you want a socialist state run by little tyrants? Its that simple and those are your only choices. These Bush people are, in my opinion, traitors to the republic and no better than the treasoncrats in the treasoncrat party.

Face it. The Republican party lost its way after Reagan. It was taken over by lying globalistas masquerading as Republicans that would side with Democrats. They now will vote for the befuddled one? Good for them! Now the Republican party can find its real identity, and offer a real alternative to the Democrats. Republicans won't be falling for globalistas anymore.

If they are really Republicans, they would had run a candidate against President Trump in the primaries; or supported a libertarian candidate. But to say they will vote for Biden does not make sense. Biden is totally opposite of Republican beliefs. Therefore they are liberals in Republican clothing.

They aren't going to endorse Biden...they will "draft" a certain western Senator, a man in the Bush tradition, handsome, successful businessman who can get things done as a NeverTrump GOP reform third party alternative. A man of deep religious conviction and one who demonstrated his high principles when he voted for conviction on one count of the Trump impeachment "indictment". He was even ENDORSED once by the man himself. That's IF the numbers fall in their direction. The UNIPARTY can't afford to lose both sides of the aisles to "reformers". Biden blocks the radicals from the Dem ticket. Expect a fair amount of "conservative"/traditional Dem support flowing away to an acceptable "mainstream" alternative to Bumblin' Joe. It's not about popular vote. It's the Electoral College. Maybe the House...

Biden will be a figurehead. The Left will control the agenda, will control the everything in the Executive, and probably beyond to Congress. This means the end of the Constitutional Republic. Because once the Supreme Court is neutralized or even disbanded --WHO'S gonna stop the Dem/Left?-- the Constitution will be rendered null and void. Remember how BO once referred to the Constitution as "that paper"? We know he didn't like it because it was a document of "negative rights". BO installed loyalists throughout the government, courts and military. I think we've seen enough criticism of POTUS coming from all sectors to prove that. Anyone dissing President Trump FOR Biden and ergo the Left, is voting for the destruction of our Republic. They 're either useful idiots or craven evildoers.

If she, and the other Bush 43 Alumni, want normal, then they should be looking to elect as many Republicans and supporting the Republican agenda. The current times of election turmoil is brought about by Democrats not wanting to allow for the peaceful transfer of power, and then using an un-predicated investigation into Gen. Flynn to enable the later special counsel investigation into Trump. The latter resulted in ZERO collusion or obstruction and looks to be a phoney cover to initiate the investigation too. Then, after that didn't work, they decided to use a phone call about Ukraine to initiate hearings, then actually tried to impeach the president (only Mitt thought one item was possibly impeachable but later likely learned about those 50+ transcripts that were hidden from him and everyone else but a handful of Democrats). So, this year, they pushed that he didn't do enough about COVID, when he did more, and earlier, than anyone thought, plus if he did more, they'd have claimed he was over-reaching and installing a dictatorship. When that seemed to settle down, the Democrats have decided to launch a Russian bounty on U.S. soldiers. This is another catch-22 scheme. Want to put a stop to all of those things, elect Republicans across the board, keep the WH, expand the Senate majority, and re-take the House. You will see a stop to all of the Democrat schemes, and will expose all of the schemes I just highlighted above. They will not have the ability to hide documents, and declare things redacted that have no real reason other than they want to cover-up the truth.

Let's all just face it-- President Trump is the best President since Ronald Reagan. Those "republicans" who have come after Ronaldus Magnus, by and large have deserted U.S. Many of them talk a good game, but they leave us high and dry when we need them to stand for us! Its going to be up to US to save the Republic-- only a very few will stand with us. After much heated rhetoric on the "Corona Virus bill, NOT ONE voted against all the pork in it to get a better bill. When Nobama got NobamaCare passed on CHRISTMAS EVE after suffering a staggering lost of House seats in the 2010 mid-terms, NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN voted for it-- now the make show votes to look like they are against it, but will not vote to KILL it.

Emory & Henry College in Virginia has announced to students the school will re-examine its wasp mascot. Why? The bug may appear “exclusive” to students who are not White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, or “WASPs.” While a public outcry over racism continues around the nation, the college is already concerned that its two historical namesakes—Methodist Episcopal Church bishop John Emory and founding father Patrick Henry—were slave holders. The school mascot has also come under scrutiny. “Conversations must examine how Emory & Henry’s past has contributed to current and ongoing systemic oppression,” said Dr. John Wells, president of Emory & Henry College, according to the

The teenager shot dead in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest area was being chased after stealing a Jeep at knifepoint—and sobbed, “I don’t want to die” after he was shot, according to a report. Antonio Mays Jr., 16, said that he and a 14-year-old boy were being chased and shot at early Monday after they “beat someone up and took” their vehicle at knifepoint, his so-called “street sister,” Ciara Walker, told DailyMail.com. Walker told the pair to head to the police precinct in the CHOP zone, telling them, “You will be safe there—nothing will happen to you.”

German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer is said to be considering a massive restructure to the elite Special Forces Command (KSK) Bundeswehr unit after a series of far-right extremist allegations involving the unit’s members. Information from the Defense Committee of the Bundestag has revealed that at least one company of the unit–consisting of 70 soldiers—is to be dissolved but Kramp-Karrenbauer rejected calls for completely dissolving the army’s special forces, saying that they were still needed. Formed in 1996, the KSK is a specialised elite unit that deals with hostage situations in foreign war zones, which allowed Germany to operate without

It’s all about the Benjamins.

Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma made the fiscally hawkish suggestion in an amendment to a bipartisan bill that would make Juneteenth a federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery without tinkering with Columbus Day.(Snip) Rather, Johnson said he and Lankford picked Columbus Day because it’s “lightly celebrated” and its cancellation would be “least disruptive

Officials at California State University-Fresno are facing increasing pressure to remove a statue on campus depicting the late Indian freedom leader Mahatma Gandhi. “How will the historian teach and explain that Gandhi was uncharitable in his attitude towards the Black race and see that we are glorifying him by erecting a statue on our campus?” asks a Change.org petition, which is nearing 5,000 signatures. “Gandhi was deeply prejudiced against all minorities, from black Africans, Jews, to low-caste Hindus,” it states. “He also demonstrated a shocking lack of morality, from sleeping naked with young girls to employing nonviolence merely as a tool

Hundreds of former officials who served under President George W. Bush are gearing up to endorse presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden. The group of officials—which include members of Mr. Bush’s cabinet and other senior officers—has reportedly formed a political action committee dubbed 43 Alumni for Biden. Mr. Bush was the 43rd president. “We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, one of the 43 Alumni organizers, who worked on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign and later in the General Services Administration, told Reuters.

Columbus, Ohio—A Christopher Columbus statue outside Columbus’ City Hall was removed early Wednesday morning. The statue will be placed in storage, according to a press release from Mayor Andrew Ginther’s office, according to our sister station, NBC 4. “For many people in our community, the statue represents patriarchy, oppression and divisiveness. That does not represent our great city, and we will no longer live in the shadow of our ugly past,” said Mayor Ginther. “Now is the right time to replace this statue with artwork that demonstrates our enduring fight to end racism and celebrate the themes of diversity and inclusion.”

A group of protesters marched to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Sunday afternoon, upset that she pledged to dismantle the police-free "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" zone, known as CHOP. Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant joined a group of dozens of demonstrators gathered at Durkan's home who were holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the area alone or meet protesters' demands. Durkan said last week that police would soon return to Seattle's East Precinct, which has been overrun by protesters who set up the CHOP zone, but gave no timetable.

A caravan of protesters—some wielding plastic pitchforks—descended on the Hamptons Wednesday to blast the rich and decry the nation’s rising income inequality. More than 100 drivers and about 200 marchers paid a visit to the homes of some of the world’s wealthiest people, including ex-New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. “Tax the rich, not the poor!” the protesters chanted outside Bloomberg’s $20 million Southhampton mansion, with some calling the failed presidential candidate a “looter.”(Snip) They noted that while the virus outbreak has deeply impacted low-income and communities of color, the wealth of US billionaires has surged.

It’s all about the Benjamins. A couple of Republican senators rolled out a proposal Wednesday to cancel Columbus Day and replace it with Juneteenth, saying they don’t want to just list both dates as federal holidays because that would “put us further in debt.” Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma made the fiscally hawkish suggestion in an amendment to a bipartisan bill that would make Juneteenth a federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery without tinkering with Columbus Day.(Snip) Rather, Johnson said he and Lankford picked Columbus Day because it’s “lightly celebrated” and its cancellation would be “least disruptive

With five months until the election, things couldn’t look any worse for the president of the United States. His approval rating is down to 40%. People are getting tired of his antics and the insults he hurls at his opponents. The media is increasingly confident that, come November, the voters will elect a new chief executive. This might sound like June 2020, but I’m actually referring to June 1948 — when President Harry Truman, a Democrat, was running to keep his job against Republican Thomas Dewey. The similarities between the 1948 and 2020 elections are striking.
