    Frustrated with Republican incumbents’ inability to pass any significant legislation, the Republican donor class started meeting with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon over his plan to primary establishment Republicans. Former White House chief strategist and Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon met with notable Republican donors, many whom remain frustrated by the Republican establishment’s inability to pass significant legislation such as repealing and replacing Obamacare, tax reform, and funding a southern border wall. The Republican donor class will consider backing Bannon’s campaign to challenge Senate Republican incumbents in the war against Senate Majority Leader...
  • GOP donors say Senate RINOs hurting the party — and they’re right

    10/09/2017 1:57:30 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 25 replies
    This #neverTrump attitude among RINOs in the Senate is costing the Republican Party support. Major Republican donors are lamenting inaction in D.C. on major campaign pledges including tax reform and the repeal of Obamacare as a major reason why fundraising is down, placing most of the blame on #neverTrump #RINOs in the Senate. As reported by Fox News, political fundraiser Dan Palmer said Saturday that raising money for coming races has been difficult thanks to the obstinance of so-called “Republicans” (like John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and a handful of others). “I’ve been around Republican politics for 30 some years and...
  • Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

    10/09/2017 1:54:58 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 53 replies
    Earlier this week we told you about how Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff had bluntly told a group of major donors that they should tell Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment that they would “…not only stop donating, I would form a coalition of all the other major donors, and just say two things. We’re definitely not giving to you, No. 1. And No. 2, if you don’t have this done by Dec. 31, we’re going out, we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”
  • Trump supporters eager to ‘drain the swamp’ help fill Republican Party coffers

    Fueled by a string of fundraising appeals from President Trump to his supporters, the Republican Party is on track to raise more money from small-dollar contributions than it has collected in more than a decade. The influx of cash from Trump’s base is helping the GOP amass a major advantage as the parties prepare to battle for control of Congress in the 2018 elections, with the Republican National Committee pulling in nearly twice as much money overall as its Democratic counterpart this year. The RNC’s success with small donors illustrates how the Republican Party, long a center of the political...
  • Scalise: Pence Aide ‘Overzealous’ Calling For A GOP Purge

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said it's "overzealous" to call for a purge on GOP donors who haven't supported the administration's agenda. He was responding to a recent remark from Vice President Pence's chief of staff Nick Ayers. “Maybe he got a little overzealous," Scalise said on NBC News' "Meet the Press with Chuck Todd" in an interview set to air on Sunday. Scalise's comments come after Ayers said wealthy Republican donors should "purge" members of Congress who have not been supportive of President Trump's agenda.

    PJ Media ^ | 10-04-2017 | Michael van der Galien
    Not too long ago, the British Tories were actually conservative. This meant that, among other things, they valued the individual and his rights. One of his most important rights was, the average Tory would've told you ten years ago, the "right" to be the master of his own body. Well, those days belong to the past now. Today, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that everyone will now be considered an organ donor unless they opt out of the system. This means, in effect, that the state will decide what will happen with your body when you die, unless you...

    Almost a year and a half after promising to detail a “stunning number of donors” who sought favors and didn’t get them, Mayor de Blasio published an op-ed containing only two new examples. The op-ed — which does not name a single contributor, not even two he references who have since been arrested in a police corruption case — was published on the website Medium on the Friday ahead of the long Labor Day Weekend.

    Left-wing billionaire George Soros’ non-profit network, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), is confident about the future success of its work in the field of immigration activism and may embark on a massive campaign on immigration issues in the near future. That’s according to a candid 62-page document reviewing OSF’s work on immigration reform discussed in May at the group’s board meeting in Montgomery, Ala. The document, which is one of 2,500 stolen from OSF in a massive hack and released over the weekend, shows that the Soros group believes that its $7.7 million investment in groups pushing for immigration reform...

    The Republican National Committee paid the Trump International Hotel in Washington $122,000 last month after the party held a lavish fundraiser at the venue in June, the latest example of how GOP political committees are generating a steady income stream for President Trump's private business, new Federal Election Commission records show. At least 25 congressional campaigns, state parties and the Republican Governors Association have together spent more than $473,000 at Trump hotels or golf resorts this year, according to a Washington Post analysis of campaign finance filings. Trump's companies collected an additional $793,000 from the RNC and the president's campaign...

    The Hill ^ | 8-19-17 | BEN KAMISAR
    The Republican National Committee (RNC) expanded its massive fundraising lead over the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in July as the Democrats posted their worst July haul in a decade. The DNC raised just $3.8 million in July, compared to the $10.2 million raised by the RNC in the same month. While the GOP has no debt, the DNC added slightly to its debt in July, which now sits at $3.4 million. The Democrats haven't raised that little money in a July since 2007; the party raised $3.4 million in that month. The Hill obtained the RNC's fundraising numbers ahead of...
  • Sheldon Adelson privately supports anti-McMaster campaign

    08/19/2017 1:20:11 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 31 replies
    Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson has privately told one of his allies that he supports a campaign that depicts H.R. McMaster as anti-Israel and seeks to remove him from his post as national security adviser. In an email to Mort Klein, the president of the Zionist Organization of America, Adelson writes: "Now that I have talked to somebody with personal experience with McMaster, I support your efforts." Why this matters: Adelson is arguably the most influential donor in Republican politics, spending tens of millions of dollars each election season. He also funds the ZOA, which has been relentlessly attacking McMaster and...
  • GOP Donors Respond to Obamacare Repeal Failure, Withhold Donations

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | Aug. 8, 2017 | Kathryn Covert
    Republican donors are protesting GOP lawmakers' failure to repeal Obamacare by withholding donations to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. At least $2 million in contributions originally promised to the NRSC have not materialized, CNN reported Tuesday. The failure of Republicans to fulfill a central campaign promise particularly concerns some donors because it could disillusion core voters heading into the 2018 midterms. The uncertainty could put the Republicans' majority—especially in the House of Representatives—at risk.
  • Pro-Trump billionaire donates $300,000 to unseat Jeff Flake

    08/10/2017 4:45:59 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 49 replies
    Sen. Jeff Flake. Photo: J. Scott Applewhite / AP Jeff Flake is one of the few elected Republicans to publicly break from Donald Trump, denouncing Trump-style populism in his new book and refusing to endorse Trump during the presidential election. Now, Trump-supporting billionaire Robert Mercer is donating $300,000 to a super PAC backing Kelli Ward, one of Flake's Republican primary challengers, Politico's Alex Isenstadt reports. Why it matters: Polls show that Flake is deeply unpopular in Arizona, and Republican primary voters are still overwhelmingly supportive of Trump. The precarious situation Flake finds himself in shows the risks other Republicans will...

    When a Trinity College professor drew national outrage for his “Let them all ******* die” Facebook status update about white people, his college stood by its man. Not all students and donors were similarly inclined. "Donors have pulled back and incoming students have decided to go elsewhere in response to the firestorm that erupted from a professor's racially-charged Facebook posts, Trinity College’s president said Monday," Russell Blair wrote in The Hartford Courant on August 1, 2017. "Joanne Berger-Sweeney said 16 incoming students have withdrawn and past donors have chosen not to contribute to the school this year, resulting in about...

    Republican donor from Virginia Beach sues GOP, accusing the party of fraud over failed Obamacare repeal.( Full title) .. A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn't repeal the Affordable Care Act he's suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering. Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren't going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare. The GOP "has been engaged...

    TRENTON -- Already trailing badly in the polls, Republican New Jersey governor candidate Kim Guadagno has been hit with another devastating 1-2 punch: She's lost the confidence of a pair of deep-pocketed GOP groups that spend big on governor's races, NJ Advance Media has learned. The Republican National Committee, which is controlled by President Donald Trump, views the lieutenant governor as someone who hasn't been loyal to the president and officials there see her race as a losing cause, according to two sources familiar with the RNC's plans. The sources requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly....
