Sinise to the rescue? That would be a no, at least when it comes to Fiorina and Whitman.

As the final hours run out for two big races in California, some sleuthy types over at The Wrap have discovered that the rare species known as the Hollywood conservative is apparently not doling out the big bucks to help either Carly Fiorina or Meg Whitman win at the polls.

What—or who, rather—gives? And who knew Gary Sinise leaned to the right? The Wrap gives some answers below.  —KA

The Wrap:

TheWrap found a pathetically thin list of Fiorina donors with industry ties (only one hand necessary), and less than two dozen for Whitman….

Even Whitman’s list pales in comparison to the scores of movie, music and television stars who have opened their wallets for Brown and Boxer.

Executives like Michael Lynton and Haim Saban (both well-known liberals)  have given to Whitman; but they give a lot more to the other side. Best-selling author Dean Koontz has donated to Fiorina ... but after that the list grows scant.

Remember! That if you are for the State of Arizona rigid enforcement of Immigration law which includes SB1070, it would be extremely foolhardy to vote back any Liberal-Democrat to the House or Senate, as they can do much damage to our wilting economy. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada has already promised to attach The Dream Act, to any new Amnesty. Senator Barbara Boxer is of the same mind, that the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens should be rewarded even though they broke the law. America has become a welfare entitlement landing place for the destitute of the world. Yet the American people are treated with indifference and rejected for their economic needs? The thought of adding another 2.6 Trillion dollars (Heritage Foundation estimate) to our already diminished reservoir of public services for the use of illegal aliens, is absolutely irrational.  Casino head’s have likely intimidated their staff to vote for Harry Reid, as the entertainment and service industries are well supplied with illegal workers.

The problem is, it’s a civil infraction and doesn’t become a serious offense, until you reenter the United States after being deported? It up to the new Congress and specifically TEA PARTY members to uphold the 1986 immigration law, and perhaps make it a felony like other countries, including Mexico. None of the Incumbents want to open the proverbial can of worms, as they are all Pro-Amnesty. It would be like Icarus flying into the sun, with wax wings.No Liberal has any gonads to tell the truth of their so-called progressive ideology. Even Gubnatorial Jerry Brown has stayed silent, about what to do about the principle Sanctuary Cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, as both have been infiltrated by Liberal progressives, who want no border and the free flow of cheap labor. How can any Politician really even think of allowing a run on the border should there be another Amnesty, when millions and millions of Americans have no job?

Reid’s Nevada has the highest unemployment nationwide, and Boxers California have some of the highest jobless rates in the nation.  The Tea Party and other proponents will not open the border gates, and will use a composite of the new state of the art E-Verify, to start dislodging illegal workers. The Tea Party will also be held accountable, as will those lawmakers already in Washington.  That is the promise of the Tea Party to the American people. A new vision for this country is at hand, that will scrub clean the corruption in Washington, deep six the Liberal extremists, and stem the unfavorable tide of special interests groups that have crippled the people’s interests.  Hopefully this will eliminate the Tax and spend mountainous problem, which is already out-of-control with revised 16 Trillion US dollar deficit.

More balanced free trade agreements and a revised Health Care package, that doesn’t bankrupt America. ATTENTION: Watch for irregularities at the Polling places and be observant of voter fraud with absentee ballots. LARGE POPULATION OF NON CITIZENS WHO VOTE COULD COMPROMISE ANY CLOSE RUN RACE. HAVING ALREADY VIOLATED THE LAW, FOREIGN NATIONALS HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE. CALIFORNIA, NEVADA AND OTHER BORDER STATES MUST BE CAREFULLY SCRUTINIZED.

My God! I can NOT stand this freaking moron, Sinise!

His only military “service” was when he played
Lt. Dan in “Forrest Gump”, and ever since then he’s been acting like he’s G.I. Joe.

Like the rest of the republicans and tea party freaks,
he’s a total and absolute fraud!
