Yesterday, I mentioned I was disheartened that in some races, the Republicans gave us horrid choices, elevating the incumbent Democrats. But, in other races, there are some really good principled conservative Republican choices that deserve our support (even if it’s a little belated on my part).
Dan Benishek and Bill Hardiman: Help Elect Them to Congress . . .
Dr. Dan Benishek
Clova & Bill Hardiman
Today is the primary election day in Michigan (and, I believe, in some other states). But whether or not you live in Michigan, I want to ask your last-minute support (and if you live in the respective districts and haven’t voted yet, your vote) in a couple of Congressional races, where it’s a choice of a RINO or worse versus a real conservative with principles and a counter-jihad mindset. I hope that you will contribute to these people, because every little bit helps, and will help defray costs that are left over after today’s primary (and hopefully onward to the general election):
* Dr. Dan Benishek running for Bart Stupak’s seat against SEIU “Republican” tied to Kwame Kilpatrick: I cannot say enough good things about Dan Benishek, a medical doctor and surgeon, who spends much of his time treating our soldiers at a veterans’ hospital. Running for Congress from Michigan’s 1st Congressional District, Benishek has never been a politician, never served in public office, and is a no-nonsense man of the people. He was born in Iron River, Michigan, and was raised by his mother after his father, a miner, died in a mining accident. On the Middle East, Benishek wrote me:
I support the state of Israel and their enforcing blockades on Gaza, which helps prevent arms that would be used against them from reaching hostile militants. We should respect Israel, an important ally in the Mideast region.
Benishek’s opponent is career politician and State Senator Jason Allen a/k/a Jason Miller-Allen, the SEIU’s and ACORN’s favorite Republican. In exchange for pro-SEIU/pro-union protectionist legislation (including unionizing tens of thousands of healthcare workers, while Dan Benishek was working against Bart Stupak on ObamaCare), the SEIU gave Allen’s sleazy wife, Suzanne Miller-Allen, thousands of dollars in a secret slush fund, which she uses as a foundation to give out grant money. The Allens refuse to divulge how much money they got from SIEU or from anyone else in the slush fund “non-profit.”
And if you like Hillary Clinton, you’ll love Suzanne Miller-Allen, who is a lobbyist and the puppeteer running her husband’s political career. While she is married to him, it’s more of a marriage of convenience for political ambition purposes, as Ms. Miller-Allen is . . . well, let’s just say her brush cut (which she’s had throughout her life) is perfect for the WNBA audience. The Miller-Allens have worked in politics in Michigan’s Capitol for their entire careers. They are all about Republican-assisted tax raises and high spending, and they are carpet-baggers, moving into the district to run.
And that’s not to mention that Jason Miller-Allen took campaign contributions from convicted felon/deposed Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s Lebanese billionaire benefactor, Manuel “Matty” Moroun, in exchange for helping squash a publicly funded bridge to Canada from Detroit. That’s a national security issue, and the bridge should be publicly run. Moroun currently owns the only bridge between the two, and he successfully pressures Customs and Border Protection agents to skimp on their inspections of incoming trucks and people.
It’s going to be a very close race, but I predict and hope that Dr. Benishek will pull it out in today’s Republican Primary. If not, you can count on the Democrats’ Bart Stupak clone to win the general election in November. Please donate to Dan Benishek and help put him over the top, tonight.
The race is very close, and I put my money on Dr. Benishek to win this one, tonight. But he needs your help.
* Bill Hardiman, Christian Zionist, running against GOP Establishment Supporter of Palestinian State, Palestinian Refugees: I’m embarrassed that it took me this long to get to this, but better late than never. State Senator Bill Hardiman is a Vietnam veteran, a down-the-line principled conservative, and a Christian Zionist who regularly attends “Honor Israel Night” gatherings in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He gets it on jihad and Islamic terrorism. And he’s an all-around great guy who deserves our support. I love this guy.
His GOP establishment opponent, career politician Justin Amash, supports a Palestinian state with “contiguous borders,” meaning Israel would have to further amputate itself and give more land to the Palestinians to connect Gazastan with the so-called West Bankistan.
I share former President George W. Bush’s vision of two independent states, Israel and Palestine—two peoples, living side by side in peace and security. . . . A future state of Palestine must be viable, contiguous, sovereign, and independent.
Yes, George Bush’s “vision” on this worked so well . . . with HAMAS elected into power. Terrific. We have a clone with his failed Palestinian State “vision” seeking to be in Congress. Amash also specifically calls on his campaign website to help the “Palestinian refugees,” when they already get billions of U.S. taxpayer money they don’t deserve through UNRWA and direct U.S. aid. It’s disgusting. We can’t have this guy in Congress, especially on the Republican side.
Bill Hardiman holds no such fantasies about a Palestinian State or the future behavior of confirmed barbarians. He gets it. And he’d be a great Congerssman. I hope you’ll help Bill Hardiman achieve victory by donating to his campaign.
Would love to see him in Congress.
