Posted on 01/07/2014 12:37:19 AM PST by cotton1706
If one ever needed proof that establishment Republicans and Democrats amount to one party rule in Washington, look no further than this story.
Former Republican Senator Richard Lugars leadership political action committee, The 19th Star PAC, sent $5,000 on Dec. 12 to Democrat Michelle Nunn, who will face the winner of the Republican primary for Saxby Chambliss's seat. Chambliss, a Republican, is retiring.
Nunn also received a donation from another Republican, former Virginia Senator, John Warner.
Lugar's PAC has also been busy in some primary races, backing establishment Republican candidates, of course. Some might suggest this is simply more proof that many long-in-the-tooth establishment Republicans have more in common with their Democrat colleagues in Washington, D.C., than they do with the GOP's conservative base.
Lugars PAC also made donations in November and December to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Susan Collins of Maine, Mike Enzi of Wyoming and Pat Roberts of Kansas.
All were facing challenges in the Republican primary at the time of the donations. Enzi challenger Liz Cheney dropped her bid today.

While the republican establishment constantly plays the "lesser of two evils" game: "hey, our guy (Jim Jeffords, Arlen Specter, Susan Collins, etc) may be bad, but the democrat is worse!"
But when push comes to shove, the establishment IN REALITY believes that electing conservatives is WORSE than electing democrats.
I’ve talked to several “conservative” freepers who openly gushed about how wonderful her dear ol’ daddy Sam Nunn was. Of course, they “lost a lot of respect for him” when Sam Nunn endorsed Obama. I guess the idea that one pro-abortion gun-grabbing RAT would endorse another pro-abortion gun-grabbing RAT was news to them.
Another freeper pointed out to Impy and I that Sam Nunn was “conservative by DEMOCRAT standards”, but nowhere near as conservative as a typical Republican. That may be a valid argument. The problem was that many Georgia “Republicans” seemed to be happier when the RATs were in the power (Nunn, Miller, Barnes, etc.) than members of “their” party.
Look no further than their representation in the U.S. Senate. If Zell Miller had replaced a far-left marxist like Al Franken, it would be understandable that freepers were pleased with the direction he took that Senate seat. Insetad, he replaced a solidly conservative Republican (Paul Coverdell) and moved the Senate seat to the LEFT, voting to put Tom Daschle in power. They cheered him on every step of the way and were sad to see him go and replaced with a Republican.
I tuned in Sunday to listen to Bill Cunningham who didn’t support primarying liberal Republicans like Boehner. That was it for me listening to this “Libertarian” Republican.
For some Republicans winning with a liberal matters more than principles.
Typical RINOs. All Lugar is doing is trying to ruin America with his Liberal AntiAmerican PAC.
“Nunn also received a donation from another Republican, former Virginia Senator, John Warner.”
Yeah, thanks for nothing, dried up old shit. Just as when you supported Chuck Robb over Oliver North. KMA.
The nation’s wealthiest counties are fueled by federal government spending and are located in Maryland and Northern Virginia next to DC. This has evolved since the advent of LBJ’s Great Society.
Since the removal of Nixon the Left has consolidated a new intelligentsia which has evolved a new aristocracy. This entrenched class of federally monied aristocrats are no longer culturally in touch or share an affinity with the People of the United States.
The cries of conservatives to cut federal government spending is directly connected to the sentiment to remove the aristocracy from power. The power of the aristocracy is fortified and protected by the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve Act, both passed in 1913.
The growth of the Federal Reserve has happened largely ‘off-book’ and is now international in reach backed by CIA. It has become an international agency and funds CIA, diplomatic and international military assets worldwide. It is in fact the money engine of a global empire with tentacles into all international banking. Without it existing, much of the world stability and status quo would collapse.
Repealing the 16th Amendment and replacing the income tax with the FairTax and carefully dismantling the Federal Reserve and replacing it with direct Treasury Department operation and direct clear oversight from Congress not the President would begin a rollback on the entrenched aristocracy. But the international implications must be thoroughly understood and managed.
Management of and title to the Empire underlies the contempt the American aristocracy holds for the American ‘indigent’, the ‘country class’, the ‘flyover’ population. The concentration of wealth and power in DC and New York and backed by military, press and intelligence ‘assets’ has given birth whether intended or not to a new tyranny, often described as a ‘soft tyranny’.
The ability for conservatives to move forward and take power peacefully will depend on how well the aristocracy is persuaded that the new class of power players is well versed and aware of how to manage the network of vested interests around the globe.
If Ted Cruz makes it to the Oval Office and maintains his adherence to the principles of the Constitution, he will need to assure the world network that he and his contingent are capable of managing and ‘ruling the Empire’. Hopefully he can do such without being assimilated into mindset of the ruling class. For that he will need a clearly understood list of grievances of the American People which is predominately conservative and a practical basis to address those grievances.

Maybe true but the taxes in Maryland are insane. Third highest in the nation. Of course people will ask me why I live here. Well, the Naval Academy was built in 1845 well before the state became a liberal bastion of what it is now.
I have railed here multiple times about the modern Democrat myth of the Great Sam Nunn. It has been reinvigorated by his mousy daughter’s foray into the politics of the nepotism and ‘glom-on’. She will not win, even with contributions from outside the state.
The legacy of Sam Nunn here today in Georgia is that a hell of a lot of people don’t even make the connection of her to him. He was proclaimed a ‘defense expert’ by himself and the media, and the Democrat voters don’t care about defense; it’s entitlement for them.
Her voters would be the same people that elected Representative Hank “That island will tip over if you put too many people on one side” Johnson. And, the other older people (Democrats) who would take the bait are largely dead.
Nunn ‘retired’ in 1996 and went on to set himself up in partnership with the University System and the boards of directors for several corporations. Before his daughter’s entrance on the scene state-wide, I hadn’t heard his name in the news in over a decade.
My family have been Georgians since before the Civil War. I was born here and have stayed here except for 8 years service overseas in the 60s and 70s. So, I hold no special regard for any Georgia Democrat, except two: Congressman Larry MacDonald, and Governor Zell Miller in his very late years of public office and after. You should read about MacDonald and if you get a chance, skim through Miller’s “A National Party No More.”
You’ll see a lot of DNC money flow in here for her, but in the end, she’ll lose if we Conservative Georgians here do our job in the Republican Primary and elect someone not beholding to the RNC or endorsed by Chambliss/Isakson. (BTW, Isakson will get his in 2016 primary)
TEA Party threw loogie out... he is pissed... he strikes back with the only thing that he has left... the $$$$ he stole from Americans.
Lugar is one of the worst RINO’s ever. He’s wasting his money in GA. That senate seat is going to go safely republican hopefully Paul Broun.
I doubt the NRSC will be supporting Nunn.
Lugar is a traitor who is obviously bitter at his defeat. The disgusting jerk proves why he needed to be defeated in the first place.
Unfortunately I think its another example of the media creating a narrative and gullible conservatives drinking the kool-aid. Nunn went around calling himself a "national defense expert", the media happily parroted his propaganda for him, and even Georgia Republicans drank the kool-aid. It simply became a "fact" because it was repeatedly loudly and often enough.
The media sells similar propaganda here in Illinois about uber RINO Mark Kirk being a "national defense expert", and many Illinois citizens believe it. In reality, Kirk probably has one of the worst track records when it comes to his "military advice" and has been consistently WRONG on every major foreign policy decision over the last decade (insisted the surge in Iraq would never work, thought Obama's proposal to start a war with Syria was the right course of action, etc., etc.)
The good news, as you noted, is that Sam Nunn has pretty much faded into obscurity long ago, and most Georgia voters could care less that his daughter is running on his name. I'm pretty confident we'll win in Georgia, despite Lugar's treason in this Senate race.
However, it doesn't change the fact that many Georgia "conservatives" have some creepy fetish for electing phony "conservative" RATs.
