[ Editor’s Note: This Republican rebel group is not anti-Republican Party, but purely anti-Trump. These folks see him for clearly what he is, and although politics has never been peopled with angels, having a certified hoodlum for president is something that needs to be amputated, despite the up front pain involved.

I also suspect it is an effort to save Congressional Republicans going down with Trump as three Senate seat flips can put Congress in Democratic hands not only for payback on the Trump team gutting of the Obama legislative history.

It would also put the Dems in the driver’s seat for redistricting if they can push the Democrat route down into the State house seats where redistricting power is.

In most states a party has to have control of its House or Senate to have ‘any’ say in redistricting. The last time the Republicans swept in they stacked the voting deck of a decade by gerrymandering magic.

We will be watching them carefully, to see who they can draw into their tent, both visibly, and then those who will be under cover. It will be one hell of an election …Jim W. Dean ]

The Bush three amigos

– First published … July 02, 2020

Hundreds of former campaign members and officials of the 43rd president have united in a new push by disaffected Republicans to try and oust Donald Trump.

A group of George W. Bush alums has endorsed the presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden ahead of the November presidential election.

The group is made up of around 200 officials and Cabinet secretaries who worked with George W. Bush during his tenure as president, as well as those who were part of his two election campaigns – both Republicans, Democrats, and independents. It launched a Super PAC on Wednesday, called 43 Alumni for Biden.

The group said in a press release that it “seeks to unite and mobilise a community of historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation by Donald Trump’s presidency”.

Karen Kirksey, the director of the 43 Alumni’s organising committee who worked on Bush’s 2000 campaign, said the endorsement of Biden is “not necessarily in full support of his political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation”.

“For four years, we have watched with grave concern as the party we loved has morphed into a cult of personality that little resembles the party of Lincoln and Reagan”, she said, pledging to pursue a “civil, spirited debate” on political issues if Biden wins.

Jennifer Millikin, one of the group’s organisers and a staffer on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign, said they were not ready to disclose the names of all the members and donors.

Since 43 Alumni announced their formation on 1 July, they will be required to reveal the list of initial donors to the Federal Election Commission in mid-October. Had the announcement come the day before, they would have had to provide the list by mid-July.

Millikin told Reuters that Bush’s office had been informed about the new PAC but will not be involved.

President Donald Trump has more than once criticised George W. Bush in the past. “We need another Bush in office about as much as we need Obama to have a 3rd term”, he tweeted back in 2013. “No more Bushes!”, he said.

He also pounced on the Bush administration’s handling of the 9/11 attacks and its invasion of Iraq during the 2016 campaign.

Another attack on the 43rd president came this May, when George W. Bush called for an end to partisanship amid the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, to which Trump replied: “I appreciate the message from former President Bush, but where was he during impeachment calling for putting partisanship aside”.

43 Alumni is the most recent effort by Republicans to unseat the Republican president. In mid-June, a group of GOP operatives who previously worked in the Trump and George W. Bush administrations launched the “Right Side PAC”.

The group said they would focus on swaying Republican voters toward Biden in battleground states such as Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In May, an initiative called Republican Voters Against Trump launched a $10-million project that produced multiple ads targeting Republican-leaning voters in top swing states.

And another Super Pac called the Lincoln Project was formed in late 2019 to run anti-Trump ads. The group notably includes George Conway, the husband of Kellyanne Conway, who serves as a counselor to Donald Trump.

  1. As much as I detest Trump..and I don’t mean since his selection, I mean since his full page ad back in ’88…this is pretty sickening. I don’t know if this is to cement Trump by putting him opposite other traitors or if it’s just another political FF. Whatever it is…why anyone would assume that Trump is not on the same Zionist team in reality is beyond me. Trump in ’01 said the WTC fell because of bombs…clearly he was not hired as yet. But when he started with ‘the dancing Arabs’, I knew the fix was in. His taking money from Adelson was another red flag, as that put him in the same bunch as Bibi (another Adelson recipient), bought and paid for CONgress-critters (also mostly bought by Adelson, and enforced by Epstein/Mossad) and military leaders who all endorsed (and aided and abetted) the biggest FF of our time. All the fun and games have continued, even accelerated, under Trumpstein…so what is their real complaint? That he has upstaged them? Nah, just more smoke and mirrors to bamboozle the people. So far, so good. Practically every American believes the ‘Trump vs them’ strategy, regardless their political bent. This by itself is what has convinced me it’s all theater…especially in view of Casey’s remark back during Raygun. What has Trump done differently than Killery would have?

    • Trump in 2013 said, “What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict?… our horrendous leadership could unknowingly lead us into World War III.” Trump bombed Syria only four months after becoming president.

      You are absolutely correct that “Trump vs. Them” does not really exist because Trump was never going to fight Them. Unlike his time in pro wrestling, the swamp’s violence is real.

  2. It seems everyone in the world is turning against Trump.
    Sure, he could have done a few thing differently, but considering the old saying; “one man don’t stop no show,” one might say the Covid-19 situation can’t be blamed solely on him. The “numbers” and “facts” of Covid-19 have been woefully lacking, skewed, contradictory and unreliable. And considering this crisis was going to happen regardless of who sat in the Oval office, the fallout we are seeing was also most likely planned as well.
    That said, Trump may have been influenced to set himself up as a scapegoat for all the societal and economic disruptions that were in the works.
    My personal thinking is, the more the world turns against Trump, the better he must be trying to do!

    • Tommy Apeiron took the track onto which I was tempted, but felt I might get pegged as a theoretical “conspiracy nut.”

    • I’ve been pegged as a “conspiracy nut” for decades, Elvin. For me, it all started with 9/11. The “official” narrative, that Osama bin Laden and his merry band of 19 Arabs were the perps, sprang fully formed into the MSM within hours of the event, way before any real investigation could have possibly have taken place. Ever since, it comes down to, are you going to believe what you’re told to believe, or do you believe your lying eyes?

    • … “The “official” narrative, that Osama bin Laden and his merry band of 19 Arabs were the perps, sprang fully formed into the MSM within hours of the event, way before any real investigation could possibly have taken place.” Damn, I wish we could edit these posts.

  3. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld,…three traitorous, murdering scumbags who see Trump for the certified hoodlum that he is. Talk about the speck in the other person’s eye. You’re right, Mr. Dean,…”you can’t make this shit up”.

    • The organizers of this 43 group are mid level people, from past campaigns and administration. The bottom line is they consider Trump a threat to the country. Grab it an run. We will never see anything like this happen again, well…at least Gordon and I won’t as we are 70 and only expect to live to 90 🙂

  4. Another distraction from the recent fleecing of the US treasury of at least $7 trillion and counting, but who’s counting. The upcoming election has become Kabuki theater, melodramatic twists and turns, over-acting, unbelievable characters, all to distract us from the banksters, the Deep State, the Beast, whatever you want to call it, in the process of staging a total reset of the world’s economy by using the bio-weapon COVID-19.

    “Imagine, you are living in a world that you are told is a democracy – and you may even believe it – but in fact your life and fate is in the hands of a few ultra-rich, ultra-powerful and ultra-inhuman oligarchs. They may be called Deep State, or simply the Beast, or anything else obscure or untraceable – it doesn’t matter. They are less than the 0.0001%.”
