Unauthorized Trump PACs?
During the primary campaign and now that Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee, phony Trump super PACS have popped up. They try to cash in on Trump’s popularity, and then use the money against him and for themselves.
Yesterday, I received a World Net Daily email that forwarded an advertisement for the “Great America PAC,” with Ed Rollins as Co-Chairman.
Donald Trump financed his primary campaign out of his own pocket. He rejected any PACs and actually had them refund any monies they had collected. In fact, I wrote an article last February about one of those unauthorized PACS. The PAC being pushed by Ed Rollins is the very same one I wrote about, but the name has been changed to Great America PAC.
Major Republican donor William Doddridge, the CEO of the Jewelry Exchange and one of the largest diamond importers in the U.S., along with former chair of Tea Party Express, Amy Kremer, started the unauthorized TrumPac 2016. Open Secrets shows they collected and spent zero dollars.
Amy Kremer was originally with Tea Party Patriots (TPP), initially organized by FreedomWorks, which was headed by amnesty loving Dick Armey. The two controlling entities of TPP were Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin. Martin still controls TPP, but the infamous Meckler left to become involved in promoting a Constitutional Convention via a Convention of States. TPP was infiltrated and neutralized by the neo-cons of the Republican party from their very inception.
Amy Kremer left TPP and started Tea Party Express. A bus tour for TPE was sponsored by pro-amnesty Club for Growth, CFR member and Fox News owner, Rupert Murdoch, and David Koch’s Americans For Prosperity (AFP), another very leftist group posing as conservatives. AFP also funds Constitution Convention promoting American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
David Koch is on the board of Trustees of Rockefeller University. He is also on the board of the globalist new age Aspen Institute formerly headed by new age environmentalist, Maurice Strong, who was the driving force for UN Agenda 21. Koch is also on the board of Earthwatch Institute, an environmental, sustainability, Agenda 21 group. See this map of Koch’s many connections. David Koch also supports gay marriage and stem-cell research. Doesn’t sound very conservative, does he?!
Kremer recently resigned from Great America PAC, because she felt she wasn’t consulted on important issues including the hiring of Ron Paul’s grandson-in-law, Jesse Benton as Senior Advisor. Benton, a former campaign manager for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has been found guilty of corruption for an attempt to buy a presidential endorsement for former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul in 2012. The MSM tried unsuccessfully to tie Donald Trump to this unauthorized PAC in order to smear him with the Benton corruption.
Recent federal election filings indicate the Great America PAC is $1 million in debt and they have not given a cent to any Republican candidate. The original PAC was asked by the Trump campaign to change its name because it used the candidate’s name, and in recent weeks it received another letter from the campaign disavowing its efforts. But the PAC has continued to try to raise money. Check out Open Secrets on this PAC’s monies, it is quite telling.
So, Just Who is Ed Rollins?
Rollins is a Republican campaign consultant and advisor. He lives in New York, where he has served as political commentator for CNN and (currently) Fox News and Fox Business.
Ed Rollins recently joined Kilmeade & Friends to discuss why he decided to become a strategist for Great America PAC an independent group that is allegedly supporting Donald Trump for president. Kilmeade stated that he opened his computer and saw that Ed Rollins was going to be the strategist for the Great America PAC, which is going to be Donald Trump’s Super PAC. Rollins answered that it is not the official anointed PAC at this time, but hopefully in a week or so it will be. Link
The words of Rollins regarding this Super PAC are obviously very questionable. According to a NYT’s article which also calls this Donald Trump’s Super Pac, they state the following:
“In the conference call on Wednesday with potential donors, Mr. Rollins, who has been a television commentator and a senior adviser to the Clinton-aligned firm, Teneo, said the group would move away from ad spending and try to fill in gaps in the campaign’s infrastructure.”
Right, they’re a million bucks in debt and they’re going to fill gaps in the campaign’s infracture….sure.
Judicial Watch has reported extensively on Teneo Holdings and the Clintons. One wonders just exactly who Ed Rollins is really working for, especially since the debt ridden Great America Pac is not sanctioned by Donald Trump or the Trump campaign.
So Who is Teneo?
Teneo Holdings, is a global consulting firm with deep Clinton connections. Teneo serves as a kind of private-enterprise satellite to Clinton Inc. Doug Band, Mr. Clinton’s right-hand man for many years, is a Teneo founder. Huma Abedin, Mrs. Clinton’s right-hand woman for many years, was a senior advisor to Teneo at the same time she held a top position as part of Mrs. Clinton’s inner circle at the State Department. (Abedin is also Hillary Clinton’s vice-chair in her Presidential campaign.) Bill Clinton was both a paid adviser to Teneo and a client. Secretary of State Clinton’s former Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland, Declan Kelly, is a Teneo co-founder and CEO.
Judicial Watch reports, “Teneo is rather shadowy, with only a few known corporate clients. It is best known for its relationship with the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation. Journalists so far have seemed unwilling or unable to penetrate much further into Teneo. But that appears to have changed with Mrs. Clinton’s formal entry into the presidential race and the dawning realization among media types that the Clinton Foundation, Teneo, and the disappearing State Dept. emails really do signal that some sort of gigantic sleazy game is afoot.”
This same firm, with strong Clinton ties, recently declined to answer US Senate panel’s questions. They dismissed a U.S. Senate panel’s suggestion that it had undue influence at the State Department when Clinton was the top U.S. diplomat, stating in a letter, that its work in Washington was “insignificant.” Link
The Authorized and Sanctioned Trump Super PAC
The brand new honest-to-heaven Trump super PAC is the “Committee for American Sovereignty.” The advisory committee includes military leaders, the former chairman of Trump Resorts International and political activists from across the country. Doug Watts, national executive director and spokesman for the group, who also served as a former adviser to Ben Carson, told ABC News that the group’s mission is to combat the “Clinton machine.” Representatives for the group say they expect to raise $20 million between now and the GOP convention in July, and upwards of $200 million throughout the course of the campaign. Link
Mr. Trump is the presumptive nominee, and he knows the cost for the campaign against Hillary can reach $2 billion. He now has his own Super PAC for the upcoming presidential race.
Always be aware of where and to whom you’re sending your funds. Often your monies are not going to help the candidate of your choice. Many folks have mailed letters and donations to Mr. Trump at Trump Towers in New York, even when he said he was financing his own primary campaign, and he’s actually read a few of those letters at his rallies. I would hope that only the valid Trump Super PAC raises monies, because we have no idea where the monies actually go with unauthorized PACs.
