July- August, 2008 - Campaign Update


The Washington Times is supposed to be “our” newspaper, the only true pro-Republican conservative newspaper in the nation. However, during the primary the paper just seemed to go bonkers over Mitt Romney. Apparently the "latter day" roots of the Washington Times have taken it to new depths in attacking "white" evangelicals. Few know that the newspaper was founded by cult leader Rev. Sun Myung Moon who served time in a federal pen for tax evasion during the Reagan years. His Unification Church requires members to sign all their earthly belongings over to it and the result is great wealth, the kind of wealth that can found newspapers. Moon portrays himself as the last of the “latter day” prophets. This could explain the vehemence against evangelicals as the Washington Times shamelessly promotes Mitt Romney, a member of another religion with a "latter day" prophet, as their choice first for president and now for McCain’s VP.

The Sunday, August 3, 2008 editorial in the Times bitterly labeled "white evangelicals” as bigots for trying to block Mitt Romney as McCain’s VP choice. This despite the fact that during the primary election about one-third of evangelicals voted for Romney, and only about forty percent for evangelical leader Mike Huckabee. This few points of advantage for Huckabee over Romney provided the proof for the Washington Times editorial staff that "white evangelicals” are bigots. On the other hand, 93% of Mormons having voted for Mitt Romney showed no bias at all.

The real bigots sit on the editorial board of the Washington Times. They simply dislike evangelicals and conservative Catholics, while favoring the economic conservative wing of the Republican Party, the wing exemplified by American Tax Reforms' Grover Norquist who is married to a Muslim and also maintains a vile hatred of evangelicals. For Norquist, a dollar is a dollar regardless of how much blood is on it, and that is how the big international companies are run today; there is no room for morals.

The bigotry in the conservative establishment against evangelicals is not confined to the editorial board of the Washington Times. Big businesses that support Republican candidates want nothing to do with the “pro-life nuts,” which translates to evangelicals and conservative Catholics. How can the Republican Party survive, when its own leadership and conservative publications such as the Washington Times direct hatred against social conservatives who represent a sizable portion of the base of the party? Who do they think will replace the evangelicals? The followers of Osama bin Laden or perhaps the animal rights nuts who recently tried to murder the families of scientists in California? Maybe homosexual activists or open boarder advocates?

The reality: the constant attacks on evangelicals by the Washington Times and conservative columnists such as Bob Novak show a political party in its suicidal death throes.

The Times editorial board and the economic conservative wing of the Republican Party seem to desperately want the return of Richard Nixon from the grave along with his drunken profane rants, as the example the party should follow. The party as Nixon knew it might win an election for dog catcher in Las Vegas now, but nothing on a national scale. Without a coalition that includes evangelical Christians, the GOP is RIP.


inhofe_wjm_sm.jpg The primary is over in Oklahoma and Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) won big. His likely opponent, state senator Andrew Rice was supposed to win big as well, but something went wrong. Rice won with 60% of the vote after spending nearly a million dollars, but a “perennial candidate” who spent less than $5,000 got the other 40% of the vote. This is good news for Senator Inhofe who is our candidate! Senator Inhofe is the man who took on Al Gore’s entire “green agenda,” and who has fought Senator Barbara Boxer tooth and nail as she has tried to ram though legislation that would cripple the middle class of this nation. (At left William J Murray and Senator Jim Inhofe.)

Former congressman Bob Schaffer is now doing very well in the polls in Colorado, with John McCain moving up as well. When I last wrote about Schaffer, Barack Obama was leading in Colorado by several points -- but that has changed along with the price of gas. There are huge shale oil deposits in Colorado that the Democrat Congress has put off limits for drilling. Thousands of jobs and millions in tax revenue is being denied Colorado by the anti-energy Democrats. This is helping both Bob Schaffer and John McCain in Colorado. As of August 1st, McCain led Obama by several points in Colorado. As we raise more funds, we can send Bob Schaffer several thousand dollars more because our federal limit has not been reached as yet with him..


Just three days before the filing date for the primary, Woody Jenkins dropped out of the Louisiana 6th primary after losing by only a few votes the special election to replace Richard Baker. Jenkins had become a “national” candidate, and had the far left gunning for him because of his outspoken social conservative views. Also, he had “upset the cart” by forcing Louisiana to make it harder for dead people to vote, after voter fraud caused him to lose his Senate race six years ago. GING-PAC was heavily invested in Jenkins.

Our likely candidate is now Dr. Bill Cassidy. A state Senator, he had turned down requests to run in the special election to replace Baker, who had held the seat for three decades. After Jenkins withdrew, Dr. Cassidy decided to enter the race to avoid losing the seat for decades to come. He is a social conservative committed to the principles of free enterprise, limited government, lower taxes, and the right to bear arms. We are taking a close look at his campaign and may support him.

Several of our other candidates are doing very well including Melissa Hart in Pennsylvania and Michele Bachmann in Minnesota. There are several other good social conservative candidates for the House we are looking at closely and will begin issuing checks to approved candidates in September. Right now GING-PAC is conserving and raising cash to use just before the general election in the most crucial races.


I just love to watch ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC political news. All the panels have only one subject: “Why isn’t Barack Obama ten points ahead of McCain?” The media refers to itself as the “intelligencia” and believes that of course “Obama should win” because of the “bungling” of George W. Bush. McCain is virtually never mentioned. One newscaster said, “The election is about Obama,” and that I agree with. It is because the election is about Obama’s radical views and his association with radicals and racists that he will lose. The Democrats may have picked the only candidate that can’t beat John McCain.

MEANWHILE: GING-PAC needs your help. Right now we are "keeping our powder dry" and raising funds for September and October. The only check we issued in August so far was for $500 more to the Bob Schaffer in Colorado for him to post before the primary. It was important for him to have as much on hand as posible coming out of the primary to fight the extreme left that has set its sights on making that state permantly blue. Please donate online today or send a check to GING-PAC, PO Box 77237, Washington, DC 20013.
