KENNEDY DEATH MEANS GOP CAN FILIBUSTER AGAIN

Back when Mitt Romney was the Republican governor of Massachusetts, the Democrat Party controlled House stripped him of the ability to appoint a Senator to fill the vacant seat of  John Kerry who was running for the presidency. The Democrat controlled legislature passed legislation saying the seat must be filled by a special election to be held after five months (when Romney’s term would have expired). With Ted Kennedy’s death and a Democrat governor in place, they now want to change it back to being an appointment in a hurry. Why the hurry?

When Senator Spector defected to the Democrat Party this year, he gave them the 60th vote they needed to stop filibusters. With the Senate at just 99 seats, the Republicans will be able to  filibuster Obama’s agenda because the Democrats are back to 59 votes. If the election process stands in Massachusetts the nation has a five month reprieve from the left-wing steamroller.

SPEAKING OF THE LION

When so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Edward Kennedy died, conservatives rushed to praise the multi-millionaire Kennedy. He had worked for decades to force the middle class in America to lower their lifestyles so that welfare recipients, drunkards and drug addicts could live better lives. As a Senator he advocated for homosexual marriage, federally funded abortions, and the shutdown of refineries and factories in the United States. Conservatives who work on Capitol Hill including myself will indeed remember his legacy.

NRSC DOES IT AGAIN AND AGAIN

ILLINOIS – Almost a year before the primaries, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has endorsed two candidates that the conservative core of the party does not like. In Illinois the NRSC is already funding Congressman Mark Kirk. In fact, the NRSC announced its support of him about five minutes after he announced. How is he on social issues? In an e-mail to me one of his campaign staff said, “You probably will not like Mark’s position on social issues.” Sounds right to me!

Mark Kirk was one of the sponsors of the far left “Hate Crimes” bill passed by Nancy Pelosi’s House this year. The bill gives special rights to homosexuals the rest of us don’t have. Kirk also voted against an amendment banning same-sex marriage. How about abortion? Mark Kirk voted no to prohibit partial-birth abortion and he also voted against a bill restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions. Do you own a gun? In 2008 Kirk received an “F” from both the NRA and the Gun Owners of America.

The NRSC believes a conservative can’t win in Illinois so they have picked someone who votes often with liberal Democrats. Does this make any sense to you at all?

Marco Rubio and William J MurrayFLORIDA – At first GOP Senator Mel Martinez said he was going to retire at the end of his term, then suddenly he resigned leaving a vacancy. Even before he left office the NRSC announced its support for Gov. Charlie Crist. To make sure he would have no incumbent opposition, Crist has appointed one of his aids to serve in the seat until the election in 2010. During the presidential primary last year he backed McCain. He led some vicious attacks against Mike Huckabee during the primary election process.

Crist supported the Obama stimulus plan that is driving the national debt into the trillions. He also supports “same-sex”  civil unions. Most social conservatives, including Governor Mike Huckabee, have endorsed his opponent Marco Rubio, the former Speaker of the House in the Florida legislature. Rubio’s conservative values are impeccable. One NRSC staffer told me that one of the major reasons they support Crist is his “fund raising ability. ” When the NRSC gets involved with a candidate before the primary election, that candidate normally loses to the Democrat in the general election. You would think the GOP “leaders” here in Washington would learn, but they don’t.  Governor Huckabee’s PAC is supporting Marco Rubio.

I have personally met with Rubio here in Washington, DC. I can attest to the fact that he is a true social conservative who will vote with us consistently on pro-family issues. GING-PAC will support Marco Rubio for Senate in the primary election. To help him, we need your support.

PELOSI’S HOUSE

Nate Silver, a Democratic analyst who runs a site for political junkies at www.538.com, is predicting that Republicans will win back between 20 and 50 seats in 2010. He has really upset the far left by giving the GOP between a 25 and 33 percent chance of taking back control of the House. Republican analysts are more conservative and believe the gain will be in the 12 to 14 seat range. Any gain helps, as it creates momentum for the 2012 race for the White House.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s radical agenda has turned off the independent voters that her “blue dogs” need to be reelected. She broke a lot of arms to force “conservative” Democrats, including those from coal states, to vote for the “cap and tax” bill. Those guys don’t have a chance at reelection. Also, the attacks on the CIA by Barack Obama will help Republicans win back some defense oriented districts.

GING-PAC will probably spend most of its resources next year on conservative House candidates running in those districts carried by George W. Bush in 2004 which now have Democrat congressmen. At present we are too far out to endorse any specific candidates, but I promise to let you know as soon as possible who they are, and in which districts they are running.

In the June-July Campaign Update I said that we needed to pray for real change, but this time we need change that is rational. We must get rid of the pie-in-the-sky, tree hugging, Kumbaya singing crowd that runs our nation and replace them with reasonable people who understand the sin nature of man. The utopians who run Washington, DC now do not believe in “equality under the law” as did the Founders of this nation. Rather, they believe in a utopian state in which everyone can be made equal in terms of education, productivity and wealth. If that sounds like communism, that’s because it is.

We need to place real social conservatives in the House and Senate, and hopefully to get either the House or the Senate, or both, out of the hands of utopian leftists before they destroy the nation. Too get that job done, your help is needed.

William J. Murray, Chairman
