Im not sure where all of you are today after witnessing the results of yesterdays election. I have experienced a wide range of emotions, beginning with disbelief then moving to anger and a decision that its time to give up and move to a fortress in the woods. (SNIP)
Here is a list of elected officials who endorsed Thad Cochran and betrayed the conservatives of Mississippi.
Governor Phil Bryant Lt. Governor Tate Reeves Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann State Auditor Stacey Pickering Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney State Treasurer Lynn Fitch Senator Roger Wicker Congressman Gregg Harper Congressman Steven Palazzo Congressman Alan Nunnelee

I used to like Haley... No more
DemocRAT enabler scum, all.
They will pay a heavy price!
This is where I’m glad I have a choice of “none of the above”. I used it this for the first time this year, and when I didn’t have that choice I left it blank. I’ll never vote for a RINO again, I don’t care if they are running against Hitler.
Here is a post I made over a the threat matrix. One of the sidelines of this election is the death of a super patriot from what I have read, Mark Mayfield a former Tea Party official in Mississippi.
It’s rare for me.
I seldom have time to dig that deep but I have been all over this one. The vote buying and discovery of how Barbour/bgr paid the left to do the dirty work is just now coming out.
The other night I went through 40 or 50 links on all this. The bigger story for me was Lawyer Mark Mayfield who allegedly committed suicide. As far as I am concerned Haley Barbour might as well have pulled the trigger.IMHO,this was a set up from the word go.
Mayfield was #2 in the Miss. Tea Party and had an unblemished record you can see what McDaniel and other high ranking pubbies had to say about him. Nothing but great stuff! No one had anything bad to say about the guy which is rare for a lawyer.
Anyway Mayfield was accused along with three others of conspiring to video Cochran’s wife who has advanced Alzheimer’s and has been in a home for over ten years while Cochran has a gal pal in dc. which appears to be just fine with Miss. voters.
Police called his office. He wasn’t there. His secretary told him to come there, he did. Police arrested and handcuffed him—totally unnecessary—set bond at not $5,000,$10k or even $50 k but at $250,000!!Now who is behind that! A huge insult in his social set.
Next day Mayfield loses his three biggest clients. All banks. And, its downhill for the guy until he commits suicide in his garage. I’m still waiting for gun residue to see if he really shot himself. Probably did but I would like to see the skinny on it.
Haley Barbour is a true slime-ball as far as I am concerned. His BGR lobbying firm is # 2 in the country and he has some really high powered corps. depending on him to get legislation vote through which is where old Cochran comes in. Thad Cochran, the governor and much of Miss. are basically wholly owned subs of BGR inc.They basically do anything they are told.
Barbour inc. is basically a smaller version of the Chicago thugocracy. Both should go to hell.

BGR has huge multi-national clients who are there basically for the political clout Barbour wields. Part of that clout comes through his total domination of Thad Cochran who basically is a wholly owned subsidiary of BGR.
Barbour has basically bought the entire state and even has his man in the House, Gregg Harper, ready to take over when Cochran retires in a few years should he wind up stealing this election.
Huge issues from fisheries regs to oil leases to you name it all come up in Congress and unless Barbour/BGR has the weight to push through his legislation he will lose his multinational clients.
It's the bubba system gone wild and these guys will kill if necessary buy off anyone, deal with the communists, and basically do anything to keep control of the outcome of Congress for their clients.
Good article and comments identifying the sleaze bags who endorsed the deceitful GOPelitist scumbag Cochran.
Haley Barbour was a lobbyist for the Mexican government
And, the Mexican govt is all tied to the Mexican Drug Cartels...that is who Barbour works for
Haley Barbour is a lobbyist for the Mexican Drug Cartels
Pubbies and Dems have been on the same team for a very long time.
Federal records show Haley Barbour as agent of Mexican government was key in effort to allow illegal aliens to obtain legal US residency by just paying a fine, putting them ahead of those waiting to get here legally. Barbour denied this when questioned in 2011. His firm was paid $402,000 by Mexican gov.
3/23/2011, “Records contradict Mississippi governor on lobbying work for Mexico,” LA Times, By Melanie Mason and Maeve Reston
Illegals, June 2014
“Haley Barbour’s firm listed him as a key member of the team that promoted a path to citizenship for Mexican illegal immigrants. He said Saturday that he wasn’t involved.”
“Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour’s assertion that he did not personally work for the government of Mexico when his lobbying firm represented the country a decade ago is contradicted by the firm’s own federal filings, which describe him as a leader of the team assigned to the account.
During an appearance Saturday at the California Republican Convention in Sacramento, Barbour denied a reporter’s statement that he once “lobbied for the government of Mexico on the issue of amnesty and a path to citizenship.”
Illegals, June 2014
“Your facts are incorrect,” Barbour said, adding, “I didn’t do the work in the firm; one of my partners did.” The Republican governor said one of the issues his firm worked on was a law that would have allowed legal immigrants to renew their visas without leaving the country, though he added, “Don’t hold me to all the details.”
In fact, the firm lobbied in support of bill that would have allowed illegal immigrants to obtain legal residency by paying a fine, instead of having to return to their home countries before applying for legal entry.
According to paperwork filed by Barbour Griffith & Rogers with the Justice Department, the firm represented the Mexican Embassy for 16 months, with Barbour listed as one of the key members on the account.
THank you very much didn’t know this one.
Welcome to FreeRepublic.!
Each and every one of them MUST be challenged hard, fast and relentlessly in the next primary they run in. Swamp the playing field with TEA party candidates, dollars, volunteers and effort. Run the establishment out of the state and turn Mississippi into TEA party territory.
That’s in MS Gubernatorial 2015. Mitch and Rand also have puppets running in the 2015 Kentucky Gubernatorial as well.
You have it exactly correct... There was a time when I respected Barbour......That was a long time ago
Yeah same here,I don’t recall the incident but Barbour has made a number of weird calls over the years which I always thought suspect. Now I see why. He’s bought and paid for.
BGR Haley is a slime dog and belongs in the darkest, deepest jail there is.
