    A top GOP donor in Florida is threatening to withhold contributions to candidates and political groups that do not get behind a ban on assault weapons, The New York Times reported. In an email to half a dozen Republican leaders on Saturday, Florida-based real estate developer Al Hoffman Jr. decried the rash of mass shootings that has roiled the U.S. for years, and demanded that GOP politicians take action. "I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons," Hoffman wrote in the email, according to the Times. "Enough is enough!"
  • Media abuzz that donor will quit GOP over guns... Wait, that's GREAT news

    In a laughable demonstration of bias, the political news world -- from the NY Times to The Hill are just ablaze trying to turn one disgruntled, old fart into a "worrisome trend" for the Republican: Al Hoffman, Jr. is threatening to quit donating to Republicans if they don't stop supporting gun rights. Is that a threat or a promise? Hoffman's chief donations have been to super-PACs supporting Jeb Bush, attacking McCain's primary- and general-election opponents. Oh, yeah... And he's already a never-Trumper... apparently he'll only give to Republicans who help thwart Trump's legislative agenda, or something like that. He even...

    Members of the Senate failed to advance any immigration laws on Feb. 15, leaving the fate of various U.S. immigrants in an ongoing state of limbo. News of the vote came in as hundreds of attendees sat in Irvine Auditorium, listening to former Vice President Joe Biden and former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush discuss immigration policy with Penn President Amy Gutmann. The two-hour discussion was punctuated by brief personal anecdotes by the panelists. In a particularly memorable moment, Bush described his relationship to his wife, Columba Bush, a Mexican-American philanthropist. "My wife is from Mexico, she's a proud Mexican-American....

    Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) on Monday threw his support behind former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is reportedly weighing a Senate run in Utah. Bush's endorsement on Twitter comes shortly after Romney criticized President Trump for reportedly describing African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week.

Miller now works for Definers, which is a major vendor to America Rising. He served on the Bush campaign in a communications role and has since established himself as an anti-Trump Republican lauded by the anti-Trump left for his...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A federal judge has given an unnamed bank more time to respond to a congressional subpoena for financial records of the Washington research firm that hired a former British spy to compile a dossier on presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump and other Republicans have alleged that Russians paid Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, for research on their own dealings with Trump and his campaign. The Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has sought Fusion's bank records in an effort to pursue those allegations. It has been widely reported that supporters of Republican Jeb Bush, a primary opponent of Trump,...

    A former Republican strategist has hit out at party leaders who have “enabled” Donald Trump’s behavior, stating they “deserve the reckoning that will eventually come for the GOP.” Sally Bradshaw, strategist and one of the authors of the Republican National Committee’s Growth and Opportunity Project, slammed Trump’s leadership as divisive and spoke about her disappointment with the party as rumors circulated that the president was preparing to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “Donald Trump is anti-woman, anti-Hispanic, anti-black, anti-anything that would bring the country together,” Bradshaw told Buzzfeed in an interview....

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush urged President Trump on Tuesday to act as a voice for "moral clarity" and more forcefully reject racism and hate groups. In a series of tweets, Bush, who once battled Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said the president should quit parsing blame for the recent violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., on various groups and call instead for unity. This is a time for moral clarity, not ambivalence. 1/3 — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) August 16, 2017 I urge @POTUS to unite the country, not parse the assignment of blame for the events in Charlottesville. 2/3...

    As the father of a 2-month-old, I can only imagine the horror the parents of 11-month-old Charlie Gard are going through. No words, no thoughts or prayers, or even time, will be able to wipe away their pain. But that pain did not have to be so great, and it may not have had to have been at all were it not for the single-payer health care system in the United Kingdom and the bureaucrats politicians who rallied to keep Charlie a prisoner to it. Gard was born with a rare genetic disease that was working to destroy his body....

    the hospital and the British Parliament will make suitably grave remarks about how tragic it is to lose "this beautiful baby" (whom they killed), and how much their hearts go out to "his loving parents" (whom they stripped of their rights, their dignity, and their baby). But the public outcry will die down; Charlie's death will, given the time-distorting elasticity of memory, begin to look like a vindication (rather than condemnation) of the government's decision; and the real issues at the heart of this case – progressivism's crushing of the private family and socialized medicine's absolute rejection of the natural...

    Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites — for not publicly condemning Trump. Sigh. Why, why, why do these entrenched Republicans insist on picking public fights with their fellow GOPers? It doesn’t endear them to anyone but their own dwindling bases. And we know their bases are dwindling because try as they might, their candidates — their Marco Rubios, their Mitt Romneys, their Jeb Bushes — just couldn’t win against Trump. Yet six-plus months into Trump’s...

    Charlie Gard will be allowed to die after his parents today made the heartbreaking decision to let him 'slip away'. Chris Gard and Connie Yates arrived at the High Court in tears as they ended a campaign to save his life that has touched millions around the world. They have battled for six months for their beloved 11-month-old son to be flown to the US for pioneering drugs to treat his rare strain of mitochondrial disease. But they have now decided to let him die clearly believing that Great Ormond Street's refusal to let him travel to a New York...

    What does it take to get Jeb Bush to learn? Nine months after the losing the primaries and then watching his rival Donald Trump go on to win the presidency, he's still displaying the same passive aggressive hostility, the same entitlement mentality, and the self-congratulatory accolades enveloped with a bow in fake claims of civility. He's out shooting spitballs at Trump, offering his words of 'wisdom' to big dollar hedge fund groups in the sad hope of turning his own situation around and browbeating voters into voting for him maybe in 2020. It's as transparent as the light of day....
