Did “America First” conservatives really “win” the battle over the GOP’s congressional leadership last week? Old-guard Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney may be out of power as the House Republican Conference chair. But her replacement, New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, is a swampy shape-shifter whose campaign coffers are filled with open borders, radical social liberal, Wall Street cash.

The multibillion-dollar moneyman behind Stefanik’s rise to power is Big Business oligarch Paul Singer. He founded the hedge fund Elliott Management and propped up the political bids of several Republican women who rode the gender card to victory: Stefanik in New York’s 21st congressional district; anti-Trump establishment Republican Barbara Comstock in Virginia’s 10th congressional district; and John McCain loyalist and Trump flip-flopper Martha McSally, who held Arizona’s second congressional district before losing her 2020 special election to retain the Senate seat she was appointed to when former Sen. Jon Kyl stepped down as the late McCain’s replacement.

Singer funded the Washington Free Beacon, ostensibly a “conservative” “news” website run by Trump-hater Bill Kristol’s son-in-law, Matthew Continetti, which in turn hired the Fusion GPS opposition research outfit to compile the infamous Trump dossier — which was passed on to the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee after Trump won the GOP primary.

Singer helped raise $1 million for Trump-bashing Mitt Romney’s failed 2012 presidential bid, $1 million for Karl Rove’s Super PAC in 2014, and $1 million for the failed 2016 presidential bid of pro-illegal amnesty shill Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. He pushed gay marriage and the alphabet soup agenda on the GOP. He underwrote fellow failed GOP presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s Common Core advocacy. He backed the open borders amnesty Republicans behind the “Gang of Eight” push for cheap foreign workers.

As I documented previously in this column and in my book, “Sold Out,” Singer helped fund the National Immigration Forum along with fellow hedge fund billionaire George Soros. NIF propped up a faux “grassroots” initiative of religious conservatives, dubbed the Evangelical Immigration Table, to lobby for the Gang of Eight. NIF was founded by far-left attorney Rick Swartz, who opposes tracking/deporting visa overstayers and opposes employer sanctions against companies that violated immigration laws. Swartz also served as an adviser to Microsoft. On Capitol Hill, Swartz worked closely with immigration expansionist Sen. Spencer Abraham’s legislative director Cesar Conda and Sen. Sam Brownback’s legislative director (and open borders, anti-Trump former GOP House speaker) Paul Ryan. Conda previously worked for the pro-amnesty U.S. Chamber of Commerce and mentored Ryan from the age of 19. Conda guided newbie Rubio as his Senate chief of staff from 2011-2014 and remains his powerful immigration Svengali behind closed doors.

ORDER IT NOW

While she may have earned Trump’s endorsement for the GOP No. 2 leadership position, Stefanik’s pedigree and financial allegiances lie with Ryan and his “America Last” sugar daddies. Citing OpenSecrets campaign finance data, Breitbart.com reported that Singer consistently gave Ryan the maximum personal donation during his swamp tenure. In addition, through his Elliot Management firm, Singer was one of the top donors to Ryan’s associated super PACs. One left-leaning website reported that over three election cycles (2014, 2016, 2018), Stefanik was “the second highest recipient of hedge fund contributions in the House, receiving $311,582,” behind House Speaker Paul Ryan’s nearly $600,000 take.

Stefanik served as Ryan’s top campaign adviser in 2012 after serving in the Singer-supported George W. Bush administration. She praised her Beltway barnacle colleague as a “true friend and mentor” after he stepped down as House speaker in 2018 — a move that had nothing to do with wanting to “spend more time with his children,” as he claimed at the time, but everything to do with creating what he later called an “escape hatch” from his nemesis, Donald Trump (and, of course, cashing in on the massive Super PAC war chest he built up duping rank-and-file Republican MAGA donors).

Swamp-marinated birds of a feather flock together. The headlines may label Stefanik a “Trump loyalist” for now, but in the Beltway, the almighty dollar trumps party, principle or personality. Follow the money; find the truth.

    “Crapweasels” is hilarious. That covers a lot of ground around the Beltway.

  2. “Follow the money, find the truth”. All through history it has never been otherwise. I thank Mrs. Malkin for reminding us about it again, as needs to be done, over and over, lest we forget that neither of the two political parties care in the least about the average American trying to get along and make an honest living.. Trump, at least, was trying to help them and that is why he couldn’t be tolerated by either major political party.

    Today, a headline from Yahoo News reads that in his book, Obama called Trump, Tea Party people and other Americans that believe in Capitalism, racist mother fer’s, a phrase that I have noticed only the vilest of people use. In any case, as for Obama, we know that the corrupt U..S. media, including book publishers, newspapers, magazines, TV, college presses and Hollywood, all back up Obama, a person who attended for twenty years the most racist anti white “church” in the country.

    All of these powerful forces brainwash Americans every single day in one way or another to make those power hungry and privileged people , especially on the left, look palatable and nice. They are not. They are the worst of the worst.

  3. Did “America First” conservatives really “win” the battle over the GOP’s congressional leadership last week? Old-guard Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney may be out of power as the House Republican Conference chair. But her replacement, New York GOP Rep.

    Of course, this country is controlled by the Deep State. Voting means nothing…the electoral process is dead and gone.

    The term Trump loyalist is an oxymoron. Even Trump is not a Trump loyalist he has always been a sham…a swamp denizen himself.

  4. So basically she is worthless-just like Trump.

  5. Paul Singer was the man who ruined Sydney Nebraska, putting about 2000 Americans out of work.

    But Paul Singer is also a booster of jobs in Israel, by giving $20 million to boost Israel’s tech sector.

    Take from America, give to Israel. That’s Paul Singer’s way.

    Any qualms about Tucker Carlson being the real thing were quickly dispelled upon watching Tucker's masterful and total defenestration of Paul Singer!

  6. Those charming Hebrew boys (and girls)…

    Paul Singer is Jewish. Our system no longer works and must be scrapped. It wasn’t intended for Jewish billlionaires to buy it and corrupt it such as they’ve done.

    Liz Cheney, despite her many faults, had a much stronger right of center voting record than Elise Stefanik does. But Cheney still had a conflict of interest because she kept attacking and mocking Trump and those who believed the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.

    Stefanik is only outwardly pretending to be MAGA/KAG while she’ll deliver Wokerati lite policies. She’s just as hostile to the deplorables as Cheney is but is much better at concealing it and navigating intra-party politics.

  8. A Jew.

    Why be surprised?

    Time to wake the hell up America.

  9. I wonder if shawnie fox boy gop cocksucker will bring this up?no

  10. While she may have earned Trump’s endorsement for the GOP No. 2 leadership position, Stefanik’s pedigree and financial allegiances lie with Ryan and his “America Last” sugar daddies.

    I think that the starting point for discussion is that, any party that would consider Liz Cheney for leadership in the first place is so beyond redemption, in any cursory evaluation, that it makes absolutely no difference who their second choice is, Michelle.

    Idiot war monger, open borders globalists, acting as titular heads of the party of NAFTA,..

    I may still occasionally vote for a Hawley if given the chance, and I will donate to a JD Vance if given the chance, however that is not due to their adherence to Republican party ‘values”; but because they are not traditional Republicans.

    Rewatch the 2020 RNC, and you will see what the Repubs had/have in mind – lame, transparent schemes to promote racial benefits plans to their target race-based constituencies, intended to replace the failing Boomer contingent.. There is no substance to this strategy, but the money flowing to promote this slow motion failure makes losing a winning strategy. Juan Williams kids have a better future as potential RNC pundits than the GOP has as a national party.

  11. The US of America is an occupied country, ruled by its occupier.

  12. Thanks for the info, MM.

    ES, a typical Republican skunk, polecat,
    owned and operated POS.

    Associated with Saul Ryan and Saul Singer should get
    anyone a one way ticket to Guantanamo.

  13. I recently came across a video regarding Biblical prophecies which came true during Trump’s presidency,(Jerusalem being recognized as the capital) it also has a shocking prophecy which is yet to come true which estimates the death of around 9Million+ Americans which is sparked by the current Israel vs Palestine conflict, please spare 5 minutes of your time to watch it and let me know what you think and share it to your loved ones. There is also a Biblical Survival Book which will prove to be helpful in the upcoming hard times attached with this video, check that out too please.
