A group of former George W. Bush administration officials have formed a new super PAC to endorse Joe Biden and 'engage and mobilize disenchanted GOP voters.'
Leaders of a new super PAC said they don't support Biden's full political agenda but agree with an 'urgent need to restore the soul of this nation.'

Bush administration officials has pledged to"engage and mobilize disenchanted GOP voters" through a new super PAC formed to elect Joe Biden to the White House.
The group — 43 Alumni for Biden, a reference to Bush, the 43rd president — described its formation as an effort to restore"the principles of unity, tolerance and compassion to the greatest elected office in the world.""For four years, we have watched with grave concern as the party we loved has morphed into a cult of personality that little resembles the party of Lincoln and Reagan," said Karen Kirksey, the group's director.
"We endorse Joe Biden not necessarily in full support of his political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation. Once elected, we look forward to working in a bipartisan way through civil, spirited debate on the many important issues facing Americans today and for decades to come."
The group, consisting of hundreds of former Bush officials, is the latest effort by establishment Republicans to reject the leadership of President Trump, who sailed to the presidency in the 2016 election on a blistering, divisive campaign centered on nationalism and a rejection of the politically correct.
The Nov. 3 faceoff between Trump and Biden will be a referendum on both the policies and the posture that Trump has brought to American politics over the last several years. Issues including the faltering U.S. economy, the coronavirus pandemic and the administration's response to it, as well as climate change, are all expected to play heavily into voters' considerations.
By announcing its formation on July 1, the group will effectively avoid disclosing its donors until mid-October, less than three weeks before the election.Had it announced the day before, it would have had to file a list of donors with the Federal Election Commission by mid-July.

Opposition in Belarus says Lukashenko's re-election win is illegitimate
Belarusian opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanouskaya rejected on Monday official election results handing President Alexander Lukashenko a landslide victory, saying the poll was rigged and that protests which turned bloody on Sunday would continue.
If this was 1773, Trump would be screaming for those Marxist Boston Tea Party protesters to be locked up for ten years. Traitors. Most likely swamp creatures. Remember when being interviewed by Joe Rogan was disqualifying? Now, being in the pocket of Bush' war criminals is totally fine.. You support a man who has dementia, who fondles and sniffs children's hair, who claimed little children touched his hairy legs, who told black people they weren't black if they didn't support him but did nothing to help them in the 8 years he spent as VP.
Yea! Let’s get back to killing more American soldiers in 20 year wars with no goal in mind. California Natural herd immunity rising. Infection rate rising to 70%, while death rate stable. That is natural herd immunity. Eat vitamin c hourly & rice. Avoid wheat. 🍒Write-in Paul Kangas 4 President. trump won’t happy about this. He will just end up calling them losers not so great people 😩😩😩
Let’s hope this PAC does better than Jeb And to ensure control of the Democratic candidate. smartdissent I'm glad there are so many on this. I'm not seeing much from RightSidePAC. But votevets, RVAT2020, ProjectLincoln, Eleven_Films & (my favorite) MeidasTouch are rocking and rolling. There's a lot to support this year. There's a lot on the line this year & more ppl realize.
Lol. I voted Democrat for President for over 30 years until 2016. I didn't like those guys before, and still don't. I am again voting for Trump/Pence in 2020 because no other candidate supports the 2nd Amendment. Joementum These same Republicans that NPR demonized as war-mongers? That NPR said lied about weapons of mass destruction? I guess it's true 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend.'
Katbluking Joe Biden is Republican light. Good When democrats support warmongers, you know they’ve hit RockBottom Awesome! Band of pedos unite! Anyone who supports them supports perverts! Bro....little late in reporting this....has reruns already started? BernieTulsi2020 The spice must flow (45):Your Pub enemy is my friendenemy . The Blue has a huge tent for most.
Think for Yourself. Be true to your soul and get back in touch with reality. 💁🏻♀️ I mean, I welcome this, it's nice and all --- but where exactly have they been THE LAST 3.5 YEARS? You mean globalist who love war, not real republicans Are they upset the endless wars are ending? This should make voting for Trump even more obvious
How funny that they have to do it as Republicans! As long as they are doing it!! Biden kann nicht mal fehlerfrei reden. Ich bin jonny biden die Frau von 🚮😂 War mongers endorse Biden. Got it. Deep State Doesn’t day much about the integrity of the Left, huh? It's interesting that someone who 'allegedly' railed against the 'war mongering' neocon Bush administration, is now being supported by them. Now, why is that? Sounds like maybe they weren't really that mad at each other to begin with. Or that much different. Or exactly the same.
Trump has exposed a lot of these people for the a holes they are. Not a shocker they don’t want another 4. Ask yourself what Joe can do in 4 he couldn’t do the last 40? No thanks F them and you. NPR ICYMI: If these people were endorsing Trump, instead of sucking their dicks, NPR and other libs would be talking about how evil they are, you know, exactly what happened when they were “current” as opposed to “forner” officials. 😂😂😂
So you're saying George W. Bush who planned 9/11 supports Joe Biden Hard swipe left bro. Pssst, they are not Republicans... Oh geez, a bunch of establishment career politico’s against an actual pro-American President. Why am I not surprised?🙄 Welp to know the war criminals and 2000s era racists are throwing their lot in with Biden tells you all you really need to know about who Biden appeals to. We really need more parties in this country. Having only two major parties to play off each other ain't working for us
Warmongers and elitists who get rich from the military industrial complex support Biden. So does China. So does Iran. So does Russia. So does Maduro. This surprises nobody. Only sheep who want to continue corruption and have their tax dollars stolen will vote for Biden. Hunter 'Former staffers' are not the establishment.
Because wars Here’s The Facts: realDonaldTrump WhiteHouse Is Absolutely Correct! The cabal is out in the open now. What leadership? No one cares Wanting to get a piece of war pie from Biden who will inevitably quench their hunger. There’s no better evidence that it’s all about establishment vs the people.
In other words..Bush era War-Mongers endorse mindless Biden. I wonder why? Must be easy to manipulate with his dementia. Biden allied with the Bush super Pac. Talk about taking the country to a bad place No one cares about GW. He lied to Americans to finish his daddy's war in Iraq. Wasted trillions of dollars and thousands of lives on family vengeance. Do whatever the hell you want GW, asshole.
Eisenhower.... 'we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, weather sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist.' WhoCares! Using that word 'leadership' pretty loosely. 👀 They tried this in 2016–remember how well that went?
Trump has flaws, but the swamp hates him. He does not sell the American people out to foreign powers. BIDEN HAS AND WILL AGAIN. The vast majority of the Republican Party supports Donald Trump. But please NPR, tell us how much the party has shrunk as those not subscribing the the cult of personality have left.
Establshment Republicans caused Trump. Ganging up on the opposing party member does not show strength. In fact, it shows the exact opposite. If you're threatened in any way by Kanye running (if he is seriously running), ask yourself why. That's because they're all a part of the same political party...the party of the 1%. We all are not Democrats or Republicans. We are the 99%, and THEY are Democrats and Republicans. They do not represent us
I think we should defund NPR....they are so bias. They should be impartial and REPORT the news not try to INFLUENCE the news. Defund NPR! After nearly four decades the neoliberal take over of both parties is nearly complete. Just keep on giving me reasons not to vote for democrats. This coming November vote is going to be the most important vote of our life time. A vote to remember and speak of, all our lives
The Super PAC establishment is of no significant. 96% approval rating within the republican party for Trump. Can that be said of the Democrat candidate? The election is for Americans to decide and not for the light weight Super PAC establishment. UNITE THE CLANS! You know you’ve messed up with life long Republicans can no longer support you. This is wild.
Honestly, I struggle with money being used for elections but this is one time I feel comfortable fighting fire with fire. Bring it. BFD GeorgeWBush_43 bye Adam Schiff KNEW Of Russian Bounties And Hid it from the President. More Democratic Abuse of Power Dems need new leadership! That’s because Trump has pulled the wool off of their bs politics
Restore Neo-conservatism. Vote for Joe! 😂 Why are you Really doing this questionable decision? Should you not be true to yourself? This is a good thing for our nation! MSNBC please pay attention to the killing of Oromo people in Ethiopia the so called PM Abiy Ahmed is killing thousands in a single day by the security forces please report on current issue in Ethiopia
Any real Republican despised Bush as a president. I think he was a good person just like Carter, but both are inline to be the worst presidents in history. As Obamagate evolves we are finding out that he's going to take the worst pres lead. When they say 'soul' they really mean power by the deep state bureaucrats. I.e. multi billion dollar military manufacturing complex paying billions in kickbacks to same bureaucrats. They hate that trump is draining the swamp. Both dems and reps.
Ahem. The 'soul of the nation' is not determined by leftists; nor is it determined by lame, war mongering globalists like GW. Yes NPR crowd! Love on the Bushies!! Cry for the days we had George Dubbia , Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft and the like. Anything but Trump , yeah? No spine to hold the creature upright.
If I were Joe, I'd walk away from that one. How many people remember what GWB did in Iraq? Show of hands, Good news, I suppose. Had to chuckle when GWB officials claimed to have souls though. The enemy of my enemy Is this supposed to help Biden? Wow, vote for Biden: 'The Candidate of the United Swamp' 'A Multidementia Voice' 'Inbetween Walstreet and Main Street: Biden, the voice of the voiceless Elite Establishment.'
The establishment. The ruling class. Supported by the Marxists in the streets. With him? The fact that George W Bush associates agree with anything in Biden’s platform says everything you need to know about the platform. Collusion much? Policy is an important factor in voting for a candidate but it should not be the only factor. This pandemic has highlighted the importance of governing. Public health should not be an ideological debate and those who think it is have lost the right to govern.
He needs to talk about that BLACK LIFE that was taken at CHOP in Seattle! ASK Joe Biden where his money came from. Was it from BLACK LIVES MATTER? abludworth 2020 Daily Trail Markers: Biden says Trump 'has a lot to answer for' on Russian bounty intel 'True patriotism isn't my country, right or wrong. It's my country, if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.' Carl Schurz, 1872 (German immigrant, Union general, US Senator)
Which makes Biden the republican candidate and trump the batshit crazy candidate... Can we get someone on the left? NotMeUs The people responsible for a fake WMD war resulting in 5000 American soldiers lives and 1 Million Iraqi's want to restore the soul of the nation 😂😂😂😂😂 They are doing this because they want to run the Country because Biden will and is not capable of doing it. They know if the Democrats control the White House we are doomed. They need to form a pac and support Trump. But, we all know the Bushes, Jeb has to get his chance.
Establishment corruption in Washington DC trying to get one of theirs back in power. Anyone that doesn’t see there’s not 2 parties in Washington DC but just one big cesspool is clueless People need to start getting used to it. There WILL be a future President Biden! Many top Republicans are disowning Trump left and right. Even former Trump evangelical supporters have heard and accepted God's word in rejecting Trump.
A few poor cry me some soup babies just need to grow up . Never going to vote for an abortionist, ever.. They all want to be relevant again. Sad. Yes, the corrupt, unaccountable, wealthy, permanent DC government elite are uniting in a last stand this November against the outsider. Their power is at stake and they know it.
The soul of this nation has nothing to do with socialism They still conducted a disastrous illegal invasion and need to answer for their war crimes, even if doing this does help get rid of the slug. WarCriminalsforBiden The swamp protects their own 🤷♂️ Why? Why? Why? PresidentTrump is a disruptor. He rejects the status quo. That is just what is needed in this innovation Age. This is a time of great scientific advances such as artificial intelligence, gene editing and on and on. We need PresidentTrump's leadership.
I thought it was the 'Chyna Vahrus' This is big I wish people would quit falling for this lesser of two evils bullshit. Jorgensen4POTUS is running as the LP nominee and is hands down a viable option compared to these other two. Globalists and Weapons of Destruction fakes supporting the mannequin known as Biden. What a joke. Their version of restoring the nation is handing our country over to the oligarchs who now own the EU.
I AM THE SOUL OF THIS NATION! MY BASE IS SILENT BUT DEADLY! Meanwhile where is all the reporting on the dismantling of Chaz ? Amazing! God forbid they push for an independent candidate.... Bush war criminals endorse Biden, Nobody surprised GOPWalkAway War criminals supporting Biden, yuck. He lost my vote.
Neo-cons supporting Biden just further highlights Biden is a Republican 🤷🏻♂️ if this is true Biden is a sure loser. Yes! Time to motivate those pro-war crime voters! Jeb Bush is their leader. That would be me, a disenchanted Republican voter who will vote for Joe Biden richardmarx Great news!! Wow! Thanks for reporting on this, NPR. It restores my faith in humanity.There should be boundaries that are never crossed regardless of race, political affiliation, religion, etc.I am so grateful & relieved that this group is acknowledging that.Thanks for explaining the timing.
If you support Biden, you are de facto supporting Socialism. If elected, we will watch a firestorm of changes that will transform this nation into a 3rd world country. This is their plan. Good for them! francescatututu The same people who thought that McCain would be a viable GOP presidential candidate?
And the Deep State gets Deeper Torchon ! Qui veux voter pour ça If this doesn’t show you there aren’t party lines. Theyre all just deep state engrained politicians I don’t what more will. They just have to protect their agenda they don’t care which side is in office since they’re all the same Biden needs an MRI. He can’t even articulate some words. It’s a shame and bazaar to think this guy is even running.
BrianMannADK 'By announcing its formation on July 1, the group will effectively avoid disclosing its donors until mid-October, less than 3 weeks before the election. Had it announced the day before, it would have had to file a list of donors with the Federal Election Commission by mid-July.' I've always found it funny how easy it is for former bush officials and current democrats to come together and sleep with each other. Current republicans seem much more adverse to my large scale men-on-men encounters. I don't really understand why....
Pussies. That makes sense! Trump is wrong for you if you'r Republican, Democrat, Independent, Gay, Strait, Human, Black, White, Arab, Chinese, Love anything, especially if your Christian! MrJonCryer oh shit realDonaldTrump you have done it now the Bush's are coming for you.. It is like the Revolutionary War all over again. Thank you for your support new super PAC for Biden.
Say whatever you want about Trump (and there's PLENTY to be said) he's not part of the Establishment Machine that has taken this country and this planet straight to hell.. But they are... It's like the Night of the Long Knives - no good guys here. That said, let them have at him, but they don't deserve to be put on a pedestal and it's a mistake for Dems to think they won't go back to bashing us as soon as DT is out of the way.
Trump’s 2020 Campaign Wow. His hairy legs must be REALLY seductive. Thanks to Trump and his Teapublican cult, I abandoned the GOP after being a registered Republican for 47 years. Eww 🤢🤢🤢 Well, in November, I'm marking Biden and promptly losing my lunch. brokenSystem YESSS YESSS YESSS. ACTUAL LEADERS THAT CARE ABOUT THIS NATION.
Where were they during impeachment? And the dnc rightward drifting continues What a movement, what energy! Makes me believe, big. REALLY SAD! Someone on his team needs to deal with this situation.40% of voters believe JoeBiden is suffering from dementia. It’s getting very embarrassing or the viewer! This is amazing.
43Alumni4Biden2020 Awww snap! Waiting for orange man to say it’s a hoax. TrumpOut2020 Kavanaugh was a W acolyte. I don’t want IQ45 to get re-elected, but I’m not excited about Biden either. Ffffffffuuuuuuuuuccccccckkkkk this shit!!!! And does National Petroleum Radio think it is a positive sign that morons who supported the warmongering chimp now think Biden is ok? Don't get me wrong, I will vote for Biden...s running mate.
I'm guessing Bill Barr won't be in this group When the man who started a pointless and self-damaging war in Iraq turns against you, you know you are disaster Biden worked hard to cram Bush's Iraq war agenda through Congress and the Senate, so, no surprises here. Biden is a Zionist & Neocon war hawk. Biden will certainly make a push to war with Iran. All bow low before the Greater Israel Agenda!!!
“We endorse Joe Biden not necessarily in full support of his political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation. Once elected, we look forward to working in a bipartisan way through civil, spirited debate ...' Yes.. Go... Biden... Go... 👍👍👍👍😆😆😆😆
Damn neoliberals. so what you're saying is a bunch of other guys that also like to touch children are backing up Joe Biden who loves to touch children...did I read that right More proof that democrats are conservatives Excellent! JonahDispatch already tried this Thank you! Newsflash: The Bushes are a bunch of Aristocratic Elitists Globalist. They are in bed with the Democrats as they always have been. NOT ONE TRUMP VOTER WILL BE SWAYED BY THE BUSH'S TREASON. NOT ONE. I promise.
That's because they're all Illuminati. Parties are a diversion to distract the masses. The same Coup group of Crony Capitalist Neocon Warmongers Liars who opposed Trump in 2016 & illegally obstructed him with false accusations. Trump is done. “I don’t like the Idea if my kids growing up in a racial jungle” -Uncle Joe But he is tolerant of others I suppose?
I’m in. Go Biden Harris! Blue Wave Dems we must win this election Stay United! Save our Republic! They better get them before the goddamn libertarians do Real republicans would not vote for Biden. This story is a lie. Will Joe be the oldest white man ever elected president? Woooooow. That’s a pretty big sign that realDonaldTrump is a giant shitbag.
I bet if he asked Ukraine he would get a big endorsement George W. Bush administration officials are backstabbers.
'The president is a danger': Hundreds who served under George W. Bush set to endorse BidenThe group is the latest of a number of Republican organizations opposing Trump's re-election. ALL FAKE ABOUT RUSSIA, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER ROBERT O'BRIEN JUST STATED THAT DEMOCRATS MADE THIS POLITICAL ON PURPOSE & INFORMATION RUMORS NOT TRUE!

Biden pulls together hundreds of lawyers as a bulwark against election trickeryDemocratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Wednesday that his party has assembled a group of 600 lawyers and thousands of other people to prepare for possible 'chicanery' ahead of November's election. TRANSLATION Slow Joe teams with hundreds of attorneys to make sure that democrat election fraud IS NOT interfered with. Yes! JoeBiden 👏👏 Fuck JoeBiden

Biden Won’t Hold Campaign Rallies Because Of The Coronavirus PandemicBiden's announcement comes about two hours after a report that President Trump canceled an upcoming rally for the same reason. Old man JoeBiden got a big date with a 10 year old boy He cant fill a HS gym Biden is not Trump when it comes to exposure. Don't even compare.
Biden slams Trump on coronavirus: 'Our wartime president has surrendered''What happened? Now it's almost July, and it seems like our wartime president has surrendered — waved the white flag and left the battlefield,' Joe Biden said about President Trump declaring himself a wartime president in March amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Biden is not mentally fit to be president. Joe you don’t even know what month we’re in 🤣🤣🤣🍿
