This is why long time GOP political strategist and #NeverTrump Republican Rick Wilson would like to shut @NancyPelosi down. 67M DOLLARS for DEMOCRATS.
That cha-ching sound is a threat to GOP congress.
To the liberals/progressives going fanboy/girl over #NeverTrump Rick Wilson this is him March 29, 2013: I want to "disrupt their coalition, break their certitudes & wreck their preconceptions... to crush the Democratic party & make it politically radioactive." #VoteBlue
It is good that there are Republicans and others in the small coalition of #NeverTrump conservatives. But criticizing Trump and/or leaving the Republican Party is insufficient. Never Trumpers and others must do much more to repent. My new .@salon
Many anti-Trump Republicans are concerned about Trump's fascism and other rule breaking. But they are also worried about how history will remember them now. All Republicans and conservatives must be held accountable for how they helped to birth Trumpism's evil. This took decades.
In essence, the #NeverTrump Republicans who now stand against Trump and his movement watered the roots of the tree for years and are now aghast at how it gobbles up innocent passers-by like a monster in a children’s fairytale.
1) ALL RIGHT, GUYS, LISTEN UP!!! I’m gonna say this one time. Being the most honest and upfront voice on Twitter isn’t easy. Do I make mistakes sometimes? Sure. Do I look back at a lot of the stuff I’ve posted since 2015 and think, damn, you’re an idiot?
OF COURSE I DO!
2) Trust me, when you’re breaking news 24/7 like the big boys, you’re gonna make a couple of bad calls. So I was wrong about Jim Jordan. Whatever. I owned it. So the IG Report didn’t exactly pan out. Fine. Everybody knows that.
STOP TRYING TO SHAME ME FOR IT!
3) Look, folks, I’m a proud, straight-talkin’, take-no-prisoners Texan. If you’re looking for somebody to spoonfeed you feelgood MAGA bullsh*t, you came to the wrong place. I aim and fire. I draw and strike.
It’s interesting how all these pundits who keep saying that Trump is compromised by Putin won’t even reasonably address Trump’s tough anti-Trump policies (i.e. arms to Ukraine, killing of Russian mercenaries, Syrian bombing, Iran deal, sanctions).
Ok time to sound off politically. I am not going to take sides. I remain firmly #NeverTrump but also #NeverHillary. So take that into acct. 1. There is a sound basis for Trump’s position on trade. He is going about it incorrectly and he is unlikely to stick with it but .....
2. I do believe Ricardo on trade (somewhat surprised I recalled the theory and its name correctly lol). But without doing advanced reasearch, I suspect it falls apart in a world with multiple players and massive potential excess supply and one very large buyer.
3. It is incontrovertible that China, India and other nations protect their local mkts with protected sectors, high tariffs, non-tariff barriers, etc. Japan has the lowest tariffs out there, but the non-tariff barriers are massive (regs, distribution channels, etc.)
Thread: Comments on the Cabal, Etc., Today, 18 July
1. As most of you know, my threads are generally positive in nature because that’s my general worldview when it comes to the US and the future.
2. Like most of you, I want absolutely the best for the country & its citizens, especially my progeny. For years, I was naïve enough to think that everyone else thought like I did in that regard. I also thought that America was different that the corruptocracies around the world.
3. It’s taken a long time for me to conclude that the evils of human nature are as resident here in the US as they are everywhere else in the world, & that the US political class is just about as bad as any other country’s in terms of graft, corruption, careerism, nepotism, etc.
STRZOK HEARING: Every Dem is behaving like Strzok's defense attorney. Running interference and creating disruption in the hearing.
STRZOK paints himself as clean, highest integrity...a page out of Lying Comey's book. Strzok working very hard to cover his naked A**.
While being questioned by @JacksonLeeTX18 , Strzok just spoke about an ongoing investigation - the Mueller probe, in violation of instructions given to him by the attorney for FBI. 💥 BOOM. @RepGoodlatte caught it and pointed it out.
I’ve got plenty of friends who were NeverTrumpers. They’re all the sane ones who jumped off that ride before it turned them into a caricature of their former selves. Some of you stayed on for FAR too long.
These people have no power and no following and they’re ALWAYS talking about “taking back the GOP”. People, you’re a few mega donors and 20 angry nerds in D.C.. You’re not taking back anything. Get back in your corner and wait there until we tell you to come out. That’s all.
Prime Minster Gretzky has proven tougher than we thought and has given his commander, General Beiber, the green light for all kinds of attacks.
In the west the #stillwithher alliance led by secretary General @WhoopiGoldberg sustained heavy losses today.
