Ex-NRCC Chairman to Raise Money for Democrat in New York

Three former GOP congressmen, including former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Thomas M. Reynolds, will co-host a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Brian Higgins next month, according to the Buffalo News.

The New York Republicans — Reynolds, plus former Reps. Jack F. Quinn and Amo Houghton — will co-host the Higgins fundraiser on Dec. 16 at the home of GOP fundraiser Anthony Gioia.

“The message I want to convey is Congressman Higgins has done a darn good job for Buffalo and Western New York, and it doesn’t matter whether he’s a Democrat or Republican, he’s a congressman and, in doing his job as a congressman, he’s done a fine job for our community,” Reynolds said in a Thursday morning phone interview.

As chairman of the NRCC, Reynolds sought to defeat Democrats and ensure that Republicans maintained control .... Reynolds led the GOP committee in 2004 and 2006. Democrats won the House majority for the first time in more than a decade in the 2006 cycle.

Amoral a**hole.  It DOES matter which party he belongs to because the Democrats vote lock step on socialistic issues.

Further evidence that Republicans have drifted further into the darkness.  SEND NO MONEY to RNC or any of it's fund raising arms.  ONLY send money directly to conservative candidates.  That is the only way we gain control; choke off their money supply and vote people who reflect our values.

I agree with you. No money should be sent to the RNC.  Support the people you select because just like in the Virginia Governors race, Republicans can not rely on the RNC for help in close elections. I've been watching the Republican "Establishment" and I'm very concerned about their comments and their distain of the Tea Party, even though the TP holds very similar goals to the ones the Republican Party claims to support.  Let's face it.  The Republican Party leadership has lost the last two Presidential elections because they can't find a candidate that can communicate our message to the people and doesn't have the guts to fight a good fight.  

Another RINO shows his true colors.  The Republican Party should be ashamed to say that they are Conservative, because the RNC "Leadership" doesn't function anything like true Conservatives.

Conservative-Republicans believe in a unshakable set of principals, the fact that they could jump ship, shows they never where Republicans. 

Another PROGRESSIVE RHINO takes off his sheepskin. It's all about self and staying on the gravy train of congress. Win at any cost!
LET ALL the HYPOCRITES TAKE OFF THEIR MASKS NOW ! BEFORE THE ELECTIONS , THANK GOD .

Whatever works in the wonderful Alice-in Wonderland politics.

...this is the problem we have now, dems dressed up like republicans.........the most of the can be swayed just for pennies on the dollar..............lie detector test for ALL politicians........

Let's hope that Reynolds is as successful helping Democrats as he was helping Republicans - he's a fool!

Screw all the Democrats!

The Democrats are causing all the problems in this country!

Tell them all to get the HELL out!

Reynolds, Quinn, & Houghton... YOU wonder WHY there is a TEA PARTY?????  And you do all you can against  us so that the GOP has Business as Usual... Now you're actually helping the democrats out.  You guys are "TURNCOATS"!  You guys are so out in "LEFT FIELD" ( pun intended,) that you don't know  what the Dems are doing to our country.  You need to get on this site and moniter it daily for a while to see what is happining to Gods Country!  We're doing all we can to help keep America Strong and defend her constitution!  You are a disgrace to conservatism and the GOP!  Rino's inc.!

Another Judas Rino.But you know what?Why don't republicans stick to their party regardless of what the dems think about an issue.If repubs would unite we could take back the WH Senate and Congress.It makes no difference how immoral a bill is that the dems are pushing they stick to each other like super glue to get it passed and they usally do.Pray "Almighty God remove the Son of Satan from our WH and nation in your sons name amen"Even so come lord Y'shua"

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
