(FROM THE ARTICLE: Trump’s relationship with the Bush family has been tense. The current president has mocked the elder Bush for his “thousand points of light” call to volunteerism, challenged his son’s legacy as president and trounced “low-energy” Jeb Bush in the Republican presidential primaries en route to office. The late President Bush called Trump a “blowhard.”)

— ILLINOIS CONSERVATIVES DEMAND NEW IL GOP LEADERSHIP
(FROM THE ARTICLE: CAROL STREAM – Despite the Illinois Republican Party meeting for the first time since a “blue tsunami” hit Illinois in the mid-term elections, no dramatic changes in leadership or strategy for 2020 emerged last Saturday – stripping all the state’s non-Democrats of any hope for substantial political recovery in the near future. The Illinois Conservative Union (ICU) (http://www.ilpac.org/) isn’t giving up on the IL GOP without a fight, however. This week, the ICU’s leadership called for the IL GOP state chairman Tim Schneider to step down. To the base of the Party – Conservatives who stand firmly on the adopted Republican Party platform – the causes of the November 6th election losses are abundantly clear, the group said in a statement.)

— New welfare numbers show sickness of America’s spirit – Cheryl K. Chumley (DIERSEN: What percent of households are “on the taxpayer dole” in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The latest Census Bureau numbers find that more than seven of 10 households headed by immigrants in California, and nearly the same amount in Texas, are on the taxpayer dole. So much for the Democrat sheep who bleat that concerns of immigrant-tied drains on welfare are simply rooted in racism and hate. Government facts and figures only show these concerns to be true. According to the latest numbers from 2014, fully 63 percent of non-citizens are living off at least one welfare program. That translates into 4.68 million households.)

— Democrat Plans For America – Dave King
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Mexican government is closing down the Tijuana immigrant encampment because of the serious and dangerous illnesses the caravan carried there, and Democrats want these people to enter the United States and spread their diseases across our nation. Venezuela’s Socialism is causing poverty and hunger to be the new norm in that formerly prosperous nation with the population experiencing a shortage of food and a deterioration of their healthcare delivery, and Democrats want to introduce Socialism to America. Democrats and the various Chambers of Commerce in America want poor people to immigrate to America and settle here to do the work they say our lower-paid citizens will no longer do, when there are many Americans, including teenagers looking for their first jobs, who can find no work for themselves because immigrants have taken all of the jobs. Democrats want to give welfare to immigrants settling here with no jobs, no skills, and no ability to speak English, while at the same time the government is unable to sufficiently help many American citizens at the bottom of the economic ladder lead comfortable lives. Despite the lying press’s assurance to Americans that the caravan contained only peaceful families, the mayor of Tijuana contradicted that assurance and told us that the caravan contained mostly young men and about ten-percent criminals. But Democrats insist that we are obligated to allow an infinite number of these people into America and settle here. America’s Democrat party has taken Barack Obama’s promise to Fundamentally Transform America to heart and is moving with all possible speed to destroy this great nation.)
