The House

A must win special election in May  Daniel Donovan, the Staten Island District Attorney, is running in a special election for the House of Representatives in the 11th Congressional District of New York. A win by Donovan is critical, as the 11th is currently the only Republican held seat in New York City. Should a Democrat win, every congressional district in New York City will be held by a liberal Democrat.

Only the 11th district was conservative, and sadly enough it was a criminal indictment that caused the seat to be vacant. Congressman Michael Grimm, who pleaded guilty to tax fraud, resigned from office shortly after the new Congress took their seats in January. This has left a dark cloud over the much coveted Staten Island seat.

GING-PAC has given an unsolicited endorsement to Daniel Donovan, a pro-life Catholic, who has had a long and distinguished career as a district attorney. The endorsement was issued because of the short time frame and the urgency of getting out the word that this seat could go to a liberal if conservatives do not take action.

The special election is set for May 5th and will pit Donovan against a yet unnamed Democrat. Right now it looks likely that Donovan will face either New York City Councilman Vincent Gentile or State Assemblyman William Colton. In April the election and the strategy to win it should become clearer. One thing is for sure … New York does not need yet another liberal Democrat in the U.S. congress.
Special elections are difficult to predict because of the small number of people who turn out to vote. As few as 10% of the voters who cast their ballots last November may show up, meaning that less than 25,000 voters could determine if the 11th district remains the only New York City Republican seat in Congress.

This will not be the last special election in 2015. Rumors are rising on Capitol Hill of at least two more seats to open up due to resignations. It is important that GING-PAC be fully funded and ready to get involved in special elections that involve conservative pro-family, pro-life candidates.

The race for the White House

How gay is the Jeb Bush campaign? The very liberal BuzzFeed internet site recently ran a feature titled “Jeb Bush, 2016’s Gay-Friendly Republican” and spilled the beans on Bush’s “evolution” on the issue of homosexuality and “gay marriage”.

According to BuzzFeed:
To an extent that would have been unthinkable in past elections, one of the leading candidates for the Republican presidential nomination has stocked his inner circle with advisers who are vocal proponents of gay rights. And while the Bush camp says his platform will not be shaped by his lieutenants’ personal beliefs, many in the monied, moderate, corporate wing of the GOP — including pragmatic donors, secular politicos, and other members of the establishment — are cheering the early hires as a sign that Bush will position himself as the gay-friendly Republican in the 2016 field.

Bush is getting advice from pro-homosexual political operatives like David Kochel, who ran Mitt Romney’s campaign in Iowa, and he has hired Tim Miller, a “gay” activist to be his communications manager. He also hired Mike Murphy, a GOP consultant who signed a legal brief in favor of the Supreme Court overturning California’s ban on “gay marriage”.

Another gay activist, Ken Mehlman, former head of the Republican National Committee who authored the legal brief in favor of same-sex marriage in California, is on the Bush team.

For some reason the “mainstream” GOP candidates such as Bush believe homosexual activists will help them win the White House. Stats show that less than 5% of sexually active adults in the United States are “gay.” Tossing tens of millions of conservative Catholic and evangelical voters under the bus in order to lure a few hundred thousand gay votes just does not sound like a winning strategy.

Hillary’s e-mail machine – It is far worse than the press is reporting. The e-mail server used by Hillary Clinton to run the official business of the State Department was located in her home. Yes – the actual computer server was located in her house. This means emails sent to ambassadors at the highest security level were not encrypted to military standards, but just the standard 128 bit encryption used by Microsoft Outlook in your home or office.

A simple question: If you knew the lives of Americans in foreign nations depended upon emails that were sent from Microsoft Outlook on your home computer, would you have used it? Of course not.

In a news conference on March 10th the former Secretary of State acknowledged that it “would have been better” to have used an official government email account to conduct official business rather than use her personal email and server. She said she broke no rules, and insists that “the server will remain private.” When pressed to respond to why she used a private server she said, “I opted for convenience.”
In surveys after the 2012 presidential election it was made clear that Mitt Romney lost because average Americans just could not identify with him and felt that he would not understand their needs. Will those same voters now back Hillary Clinton, who issued an order as Secretary of State that no employee could use personal email accounts to conduct government business, while she herself used a server in her home to communicate with Ambassadors?

The voters of this nation, the average workers, can identify with Governor Walker of Wisconsin or with former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas. I don’t know about you, but I sure can’t identify with elitists such as Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. If in November, 2016 these two are on the final ballot, most Americans are going to puke on the way to the polls — if they go at all. America needs a better choice than these two.
