Governor Pete Ricketts has answered the question honestly. Woman will be required to carry their Rapists seed. Will they be taken into protective custody? Homes? State Hospitals? 2/ Ricketts has a Religious conviction about when life begins that is shared by many people. It is shared by millions and specifically tens of millions of Catholics for whom their Church has specific teachings and instructions about this matter. His belief is not science.

LOL Arnold and Maria wanted you to stay. You BE CRAY CRAY. You’ve been peddling that line of bullshit for a long time. I walked in with a 29 percent approval level to deal with. He was one of the most talented political leaders of the last 50 years and you wrecked him. Almost. I helped Him get back on his feet.Susan Kennedy helped him govern. He became a great Governor because he got rid of the drag -you. You have always been a self promoting jack ass of the highest caliber. I will go to bed praying tonight some California reporters want to help settle

I have never responded to @murphymike before today. He has called me a Hack. Here is my response below. You be the judge. I don’t live in a world where Murphy has stature but I want to tell others about him. Fair enough? Let’s go. 2/ @murphymike was the Chief Strategist on the 2003 California Recall Election that @Schwarzenegger won. After winning, the first thing Murphy did was go into the ACCESS Business by leasing the most expensive real estate in Sacramento, directly across from the State Capitol Bldng

I will make a couple of predictions, but first an observation. I have never met @mattklewis. He manifested himself, at least in my consciousness, as a type of Palin Truther, who advanced a theory built on the inbred lunacy and conspiracy that @SarahPalinUSA, Nutserella herself, 2/ wasn’t a grifting, power abusing, sociopath who made ignorant know nothingness into a toxic brand, but was rather a tribune of the people, who had been sabotaged by disloyal advisors like me. I think @mattklewis is an imbecile and I mean that seriously.

What was “Appeasement”? Who were the “Appeasers”? What did they want? What was the goal?

Mostly they wanted Peace. They wanted peace because many of them buried Fathers, Daughters, Sons and Mothers between 1914 and 1918. They weren’t bad people, they were scarred by epic death. 2/ “The War to end ALL Wars” had meaning to the generation that fought in the first Fully Industrialized war. The horror was unprecedented in the entire sweep of Human Civilization. When the Nazis began rearming Germany in the 1930’s the Appeasers position was the following:

All of this comes from the writings of a French Aristocrat called Arthur de Gobineau . He invented scientific racial theory in 1855 with his “Essay on the Inequality of the Human Races” This is where the idea of the “ ARYAN” master race insanity was concocted. 2/ This was the deadliest essay in world history. It established an intellectual architecture and science of subjugation that killed at least 100 million people within 90 of its invention. That is what @EliseStefanik and @TuckerCarlson and the @FoxNews white power hours embrace.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I fought back over the last 6 days against a barrage of smears, bullies and deeply dishonest reporting because my dignity, self respect and good name required it. I am grateful to so many people who have been supportive and encouraging. 2/ I am deeply grateful for the true friendships and love in my life that helped me prepare physically, mentally and spiritually for these 6 days of fighting. It had been a long time coming. I’d like to say something to every political staffer at every level. Don’t do what I did

It is true that operational mistakes were made at the Lincoln Project that allowed a group of unethical people to hijack it, extort it and damage it. That broke my heart. The people criticizing Galen should remember he helped build a $97 million dollars start up that had 2/ more followership than the RNC and DNC. It accumulated an aired value of content that approached a $Billion dollars. He has a lot to be proud of. Political Campaigns are a business where the best teacher is experience. Culture matters in an organization. All it takes is one

1/ This week I have tried to show how to fight back against bullies and lies. I laid down another man’s sins and burdens and stopped the abuse from his family. The idea that it is unhinged to fight back against smears and lies is delusional. It must be confronted. 2/ I am 51 and have never seen behavior like I witnessed at the Lincoln Project. Most all of it took place after President Biden’s victory. The fame seeking, entitlement, delusion, dishonesty and grievance was astonishing and profoundly depressing. It is a reminder that virtue

Nothing is a secret in Washington. This is spectacularly corrupt and @HolmesJosh is the gatekeeper and top advisor to @LeaderMcConnell. He is deeply implicated in it. He is one of two DC shady cats that most closely resembles Manafort, Abramoff and Davis 2/ He runs a “ Toll Booth Firm” Pay the toll, see McConnell. With that power, the guys who work for @HolmesJosh, tell people he is the 51st Senator which the Media ignores because he grants access. He has a podcast called Ruthless. It’s filled with the performative machismo

The idea that is unhinged to respond to insanity or that it is the response that spreads the insanity is an extremely stupid idea. It is what has crippled an able President and turned him into a senile cartoon with an approval level in the 30’s. 2/The EXTREME MAGA movement is poised to take power in the US HOUSE and is on the march across the country. @potus has led a Global Coalition in support of UKRAINE with every bit as much skill as GHWB 41 did in the 1990’s.

Here is a very dishonest Right wing smear merchant with the Boons Farm of right wing media the @dcexaminer John McCain told a lie of commission. Mine was a lie of omission. Both lies, but different. When he did lie I thought he was telling the truth. For example He told me the @nytimes story was untrue. In fact, he had denied it on at least 20 different occasions while it was being reported, which was for at least 6 months before it was published. During those months I did not have a single interaction with @nyt reporter about the story

.@jwpetersNYT your headline is misleading. I lied AFTER the fact by not quitting. When John McCain stood before the country and lied about this he had told me that it wasn’t true dozens of times. I told you that. He confessed his lie to me weeks LATER . But sure the story is 2/ Steve Schmidt Lied. Steve Schmidt picked Palin. Steve Schmidt did it. John MccIn had no agency. John McCain had no choices. Lots of @nytimes reporters wore those bus seats smooth. Hey you guys celebrating Rick Davis day over there like the rest of us celebrate Jason Blair day?

The @McCainInstitute McCain Institute should immediately remove Rick Davis from the Board of Trustees which includes General David Petraeus. The presence of a man who advanced Putin’s agenda and made millions with Manafort, Deripaska and Victor Yanukovych has no business 2/being involved in an Institute that exists to promote Democratic values while Ukrainians are being killed by the Russians Davis worked for. Moral obscenity doesn’t begin to describe it. @visegrad24 @KyivIndependent @olex_scherba. It’s cynical, hypocritical and gross.

Some of the sicknesses in our society have surfaced because of a story I shared. I would like to make this point directly to @MeghanMcCain. Your grief did not prevent you from cruelly calling Politico to play funeral politics hours after your Fathers death. 2/ You cruelly targeted people who carried your fathers burdens and sins. It did not prevent you from using your Fathers Grave as a book rest to advance your vapid celebrity and delusional sense of entitlement.

Here it is. I hope everyone reads this crap. It smears me as a Homophobe. I was an advocate of Gay marriage going back to 2009 and I have been a strong ally for the LGBTQ community in which I have people I love with all my heart. You stand up against Trump you get smeared and 2/this will get worse. I am not afraid of any of these people. I will not be afraid of these people. The whole fetid lot of liars, weirdos, loons, militias, religious nuts, fascists and conspiracy theorists, all of them, need to understand something. The rest of us are holding

I worked with a 61 year old closeted Gay man who grew up in a different era in America. He grew up Catholic and Texan. I met him through John McCain. He sent sexts to ADULT MEN and was accused by 21 of sending harassing emails. Let’s be clear about something. His life was 2/ destroyed because he had the nerve to stand up against Donald Trump. I saw John Weaver on one occasion between July 07 and today. Every person in the organization I founded was smeared in a grotesque series of garbage stories and guilt by association attacks. What is the

.@MeghanMcCain Here is the story of the dumbest decision of my life. I had met briefly with Palin the night before along with another top staffer. We had agreed that we would not discuss anything around the vetting procedures that were being run by the vetting counsel and Rick 2/Davis per Ricks insistence. We focused primarily on her views around evolution. She lied and told us that her dad was a science teacher and she rejected creationism. This was a big thing to a bunch of us. It was simple really, if you believed that people and dinosaurs lived

Sarah Palin once said the following to me. “Steve, I can take the Vice Presidential Campaign plane wherever I want. it’s my plane!”

I responded, “Governor, there is some truth to that. First, though, there is no such thing as a Vice Presidential Campaign. There is a Presidentia 2/ Campaign and you are the Vice Presidential candidate. It is true that you can take that plane wherever you want but you should have a plan after that because it’s my gas card” Nicolle Wallace and I were the two people who said NO.

I left the White House in January of 2006 and went I work for @Schwarzenegger. It was the most fun job I ever had and our bipartisan team helped the last Republican who will ever be elected Governor of California. When I took over the campaign, a democratic woman named Susan 2/ Kennedy took over the Governors Office as COS. We helped lead a great team and won the election by 17 points in a GOP wipeout year. That made me a hot commodity for 2008. It was the first time I was recruited for anything. Mitt Romney sent me this chair.

I had no interest whatsoever in running a Presidential Campaign in 2008. One of my closest friends was running John McCain’s campaign and John Weaver was the chief strategist. There were two factions in the campaign. There was a pro-democracy faction and there was 2/ a pro Russia faction. The pro democracy faction was led by Weaver and the pro Russia faction was led by a Washington lobbyist who was in business with Paul Manafort. Like Manafort, he had a Trump Tower residence. He was in charge of the campaigns finances and bankrupted the
