Republican nominee for the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, along with his advisors, made a smart decision the other day. They hired Citizen’s United President, producer of the documentary, “Hillary The Movie,” among many others featuring conservative political voices, and contributing author to Breitbart, their new Deputy Campaign Manager. He currently is also the Chairman of the Super PAC Defeat Crooked Hillary.

To the chagrin of most liberal publications, and the talking heads of the mainstream media, this is not good news. Bossie has a long association as an anti-Clinton advocate. Material in this chosen subject is rich, so his choice was an easy one which started back in the early-nineties when first investigating then Arkansas Governor/Democrat POTUS nominee, Bill Clinton.

In researching this update, and reading numerous posts on the news of Bossie as the new DCM for Donald Trump, the spin on Bossie from the left was priceless. Describing him as dogged in his investigation of Clinton’s sex scandals (Bill’s), Whitewater, more currently the record of Mrs. Clinton, as the former Secretary of State, and the Clinton Foundation, a reader/listener would think there was no reason to look into any of these things…why, the Clinton’s are as pure as snow…just ignore the mountains of evidence.

One of the first articles I archived on In My Vue, was the piece I wrote about David Bossie from CPAC 2013, which was posted in April of this year. Impressive then and now, he is a formidable addition to the Trump campaign, who brings a treasure trove of information about the Clinton’s long history to the forefront for voters today.

March 15, 2013

National Harbor, MD – United Citizen’s long-time President David Bossie took the stage on Friday to tell the Conservative Political Action Conference participants that as CPAC was celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year, United Citizen was proudly celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary. He told the group in one of the strongest speeches of the day that “conservatives really need to think of new and innovative ways to deliver our message…and film is one of them.” [Under Bossie’s tenure Citizen United produced five feature film documentaries including “Hillary: The Movie” in 2008 which was not allowed to be shown due to established unlawful electioneering communication; Citizens United sued on First Amendment grounds, but initially lost until in 2010 the Supreme Court found in their favor in a landmark decision that now allows profit and non-profit groups to air political material without limits on spending or timing of release.]

Discussing the Republican Party, Mr. Bossie observed to CPAC members “unfortunately, some in the Republican establishment are trying to divide us.” He explained conservatives want to win every election but RINO’s (Republican in Name Only) want us to sell out our values just to win; if we sell out our principles, then the conservative movement is a ship without a rudder.

The author and activist brought up well-known political strategist for the GOP, Karl Rove, who is under some controversy lately for believing the tea party costs Republicans elections. Rove and the establishments “Conservative Victory Project” believes this groups candidates need to be replaced with party insiders who have more moderate agendas and appeal.

Bossie asked the audience, “Why does Karl Rove think he’s the only one who wants to win? Did some conservatives lose their elections? Sure, but establishment candidates lost more.” He continued by saying he likes Rove, and he’s a smart guy – the Architect.  “He and Bush were architects of policy disasters,” he quipped.

Moving his observations to President Obama he said, “Obama all but declared war against conservatives in his second inaugural address.” He noted that Obama’s soaring rhetoric from his keynote address at the Democrat convention was replaced by his clear agenda where he used the expression “collective action,” words that Castro or Khrushchev would use in a speech to their starving people.

Remembering Obama’s promises to clean up Washington, Bossie mused “the only thing Obama cleaned was our Treasury.” Bossie affirmed the mainstream media is in his (Obama’s) pocket covering all of his mishaps, the latest of which is Benghazi. The former Washington investigator reminded the audience that not since (President) Jimmy Carter, for thirty years, have we had one of our ambassadors killed overseas. He cited a House Bill that was a transparency bill for families with loved ones killed overseas.

In regards to the second amendment, Mr. Bossie suggested Washington look into Hollywood on-screen violence before taking our guns away.

On immigration, Bossie stressed we should finish building the fence and enforce existing laws on immigration before discussing immigration reform. On “Obamacare” (the Affordable Care Act) he told CPAC listeners he was pleased to see (U.S. Rep.) Ryan defund Obamacare in his budget plan and that this should be every conservative’s priority – to defund Obamacare and his socialism.

He repeated President Ronald Reagan’s ideology and plan for our country that included free enterprise, strong national defense and pro-family social policies as things that would make America sound again. In his final words he appealed to conservatives, “the grassroots of our movements must not sit on the sidelines…double your efforts.”

CPAC 2013: Michele Bachmann

{Editor’s Note: After hearing a nationally syndicated talk radio host today struggle to remember this fine former U.S. Representative and candidate for President, with the finest respect, I had to add this impressive and extremely accomplished woman to my archived articles category. As a media person at this venue, I was fortunate to be among a small group of reporters she talked in a private room after her speech. She outperforms the current 2016 Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, by leaps and bounds, and as a female, would be far more worthy to attain the coveted title of the first female President of the United States.}

 

National Harbor, MD – The United States Representative from Minnesota, who is the Tea Party Caucus Chairman, opened her speech on Saturday focusing on the Benghazi scandal where our Ambassador from the United States was assassinated overseas along with three others. Rep. Bachmann told the convention that President Obama knew about the attack in the first hour and then went AWOL; he then went to Vegas to meet with Beyoncé and K.C. to talk about his campaign.

Michelle Bachmann reminds fellow conservatives that soon after this tragedy, Barack Obama then says in a speech to the United Nations, “the future must not belong to those who insult Islam.” Bachmann clarifies he should have said to the U.N. assembly after the Benghazi incident, “the future does not belong to the low-life murderers who kill innocent Americans!” (Cheers)

In a clear and rapid summary, U.S. Representative Bachmann clarified the many things that are wrong in our country under Obama and his administration right now:

Six trillion more in debt is a war on our youth; the President borrows millions from our enemies; federal bureaucrats earn higher salaries than anyone without a government job; seventy cents of every dollar that’s supposed to go to the needy and poor goes to the government and their salaries. She asked supporters, “How does he show he cares for the poor?”

Describing the First Family’s life of excess to viewers, she described how on Air Force One the Obama’s keep five chefs. In the White House home, they keep two film projectionists on hand night and day to run a movie for the Obama’s if they suddenly feel like taking in a movie. They have a paid dog walker on staff. The 2012 Republican Presidential candidate asked “Why are we paying for this when we can’t even get a disabled vet into the White House for a tour?”

(Cheers)

Talking about caring, she described President Dwight Eisenhower, the former WWII General, who wiped out polio in the United States by distributing the vaccine to the populace. Comparatively, she noted five million American’s suffer from Alzheimer’s today and a cure can be found if money were dedicated to this cause. To distribute that cure would cost one hundred seventy two billion dollars right now – but in the future, when millions more will have contracted Alzheimer’s, the amount to cure these patients will be twenty trillion – a figure greater than our entire debt today. All the money will be spent on care.

Scientists tell us we can have a cure for Alzheimer’s in ten years if we only cared. The same for Parkinson’s and other diseases – they could be cured if our government cared. But greedy litigators and over-taxation is more important than this. “We need big innovation and big ideas, not big government to solve this,” she declared.

“The people who call themselves progressive are the last to want progress. We are the ones who actually want progress.”

“We’ll make sure your sister has the gun to keep her safe,” she promised in regards to the second amendment and current gun law proposals in Washington. She added we are the ones that care about [cures and medicine.] “It’s our duty to pay forward for the next generation. We do it because we love; we do it because we care; this is who we are – we care,” she said resolutely in her parting words.

CPAC supporters are quite familiar with the fact that the Congresswoman’s powerful speeches continue to strike a nerve with the Democrat Party. House Minority Leader U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi for years has made it a partisan objective of the highest priority to get Bachmann out of Congress. Bachmann is as conservative and constitutional as Pelosi is liberal and in-step with her colleague’s goal of rewriting the Founder’s constitution.

U.S. Rep. Bachmann stands resolutely on some of the toughest positions the government takes on  – issues many legislators won’t address as retaining their seat in Washington is their most important goal. After Bachmann’s striking appearance at the CPAC convention Saturday, the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee is hinting to reporters that she is number one on their list for defeat in 2014. Bachmann’s voice for freedom is one the left wing would love to mute, and her voice is one of the last that should be silenced – as a citizen, as an American, as a Congresswoman and as a potential future President of the United States.

CPAC 2013: Connecticut’s State Senator Art Linares (R-33)

Written by Juliana Simone

National Harbor, MD – Connecticut’s own Republican State Senator Art Linares took the CPAC stage this afternoon to tell the Conservative Political Action Conference his story as a young Republican and newly elected State Senator. Linares is twenty-four years old and was elected in November of 2012. He represents the towns of Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland and Westbrook. Linares is a resident of Westbrook. His tale was one that the Conference likes to feature as a strong voice for the future of American youth.

Senator Linares (R-33), introduced himself to CPAC members by telling them he worked in Washington for Senator Marco Rubio in 2010. Dick Cheney (former Vice President to George W. Bush) advised the young man/staffer if he wanted to make a difference to leave D.C., go home, and put your name on a ballot. He did. He described to attendees how he called three friends on return and asked for their help. They knocked on every door until Linares says he wore out three pairs of shoes “and we won!”

He thought some in the room might wonder what made someone twenty-four want to serve his 100,000 constituents. He explained how his Cuban grandparents lived through the Bay of Pigs invasion. His grandfather was put in jail during the fighting. When he got out, and the invasion had failed, Linares grandparents fled to America to raise their children in a safe and free country.

It is this family history that inspired the new state Senator to embrace conservative values of equal opportunity, hard work and protecting American liberty.

Senator Linares then addressed his fellow young Republicans and conservatives in the ballroom. He told them they are the Y generation and they are one hundred million strong.

He said we have the opportunity to change our nation and get involved in our towns and states. “We have to win elections and we can’t win if you don’t run! I’m challenging you to put your name on a ballot,” Linares shouted. He advised them with energy and passion to ring every phone and wear your soles on your shoes down knocking on doors, and {then getting} another pair.

“Will you lead?” he asked. “Will you put your name on a ballot?”

He thanked the convention with the parting words “God bless America.”

Linares chose to follow in his father’s footsteps when he saw his father become a successful businessman as a free man.

At the age of nineteen, Linares started his own solar energy company out of his basement while earning a degree from Skyes College of Business at the University of Tampa. He majored in entrepreneurship as he developed his company. “Greenskies” is based in Middletown.

As his business became prosperous, Senator Linares chose to take a sabbatical from his solar power company for the opportunity to be on Florida’s Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio staff. While serving Rubio, he learned how to work in public service and with the Senator’s constituents.

State Senator Art Linares serves in the Connecticut General Assembly as a ranking member on the Select Committee on Children and is a member on the Banks, Commerce and Education committees.

CPAC 2013: Rick Santorum

National Harbor, MD – Republican Presidential candidate 2012 and former veteran Pennsylvania Senator and Congressman Rick Santorum addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday. The articulate legislator who often uses spiritual and historic references in his well-versed speeches told his fellow conservatives “he who has a why to live for can bear almost how.”

Speaking about lower income Americans who are suffering today, he asked if they were worse off than those of the same status one hundred to two hundred years ago. He recognized the old adage without one’s health you’re nothing, but pointed out that healthy or not people on this tier are far better off today than centuries ago due to government assistance and modern advancements.

Regardless, Santorum told the room on culture leadership has robbed them of the why today. He asked, “What is the why of America? What is the American dream?” He told patrons we’re not about ethnicity and we’re all hyphenated in terms of our lineage – Italian-American; Irish-American; African-American. The conservative former Senator surmised it is the Declaration of Independence that brought us together and gave America our soul – “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”

He continued observing that God is mentioned four times in the Declaration of Independence and noted we are the only country in the world whose government was not formed from a sovereign, a King or a legislature. Santorum said in essence, America is a moral enterprise and focused on the human dignity of every person.

Talking about the Democrat Party, the expert law maker noticed the left can always provide “more stuff” through government programs that are paid for with someone else’s money. He said with concern if all we do is offer people a way to get more stuff than we lose and that to gain sometimes meanings losing soul.

“President Obama says he wants to transform America,” Santorum proclaimed. He sneered “leave it to Obama to see himself in such a grandiose way…But, America’s been transforming itself for hundreds of years…he just wants to close the deal.”

Going back into history, Rick Santorum spoke about the French Revolution which followed the American Revolution and how French officer Lafayette wanted to mirror our Forefathers vision for his own country carrying two picture frames with him – one with the Declaration of Independence and one empty with the hope to hold a similar document that would leave something great for the future of France. Lafayette died with the frame empty. Why? Because the French Revolution, though it sounded like us, was not… They replaced a sovereign King with a sovereign mob, Santorum explained, which led to the guillotine and Bonaparte.

The principled conservative leader went on to say that a society that is Godless is without faith – specifically anti-cleric/anti-God – they then believe the Government is the one who cares for us. “This is the President’s New Deal!” Santorum declared. “Give us more power and we’ll take care of you.”

Santorum asks his fellow conservatives how to make a difference. He said he’s done his part. (cheers) He talks about starting his organization “Patriots Voices” and about the film he’ll be presenting to attendees later that day at the convention.

He asked listeners how did we win? How did we win the American Revolution? Because we had bigger guns? Better uniforms? No, because we had the passion. He said the left lives every day to transform us. Talking about Americans today, Santorum said we go about everyday living our lives. We don’t have the passion they do (the left).

“The Founders said the greatest threat to freedom was time,” the Republican Presidential candidate reminded supporters. Their greatest fear was we would lose that revolutionary fervor –  that passion for truth. Senator Santorum said he was out today with his wife Karen because they’re not going to let that happen.

“Don’t look to Washington D.C. to solve this problem. I served sixteen years in the Congress – and there are very few leaders and lots of followers…you’ll be disappointed. The answer is here.” Quoting English author G.K. Chesterton, Santorum asked “what’s wrong with the world? I am.” “We’re part of the problem,” he surmised, urging followers to rededicate themselves to our churches, families, communities and schools.

He told convention goers we have to help those who need it; they don’t want government money – they want your money; not because they want your cash – but because they want what comes with it…your caring.

He pontificated on what’s hailed as America’s ‘greatest generation’ and wondered how this could be for a variety of reasons in terms of argument when for one example people watched Britain get bombed during World War II and just hoped things would get better…

In closing, Rick Santorum asked people to join him on “Patriot Voices” and to text or email him. He asked people to commit themselves to being the next great generation and WE will be the ones who saved America and preserved the next great hope for the world.
