    They sound like Leftists. They act like Leftists. And now we learn that the Never-Trumper group called “The Lincoln Project” is funded by a Leftist billionaire, according to a new book on the subject. And a collective “Oh, it all makes sense to me now!” just spread over the land. The project features, among others, GOP political strategists Rick Wilson, Steve Schmidt, the Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin, former “Weekly Standard” editor Bill Kristol, and disgruntled attorney, George “Mr. Kellyanne” Conway, who spends nearly all of his time trying to ruin his wife’s White House career. Judging by their...

    A video editor who shaped the buzzy Lincoln Project ads needling President Trump is no longer affiliated with the Republican organization over a series of past tweets in which he used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals. Ben Howe, who came of age politically making anti-Obama ads during the rise of the tea party, did not publicly tout his work for the super PAC formed by a group of high-level Republican operatives who have broken ranks with the party over Trumps presidency until a recent interview with Vanity Fair. He was described in the article as the...

    Fox News ^ | July 13 2020 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    Washington Post Global Opinions editor Karen Attiah argued on Monday that the Texas Rangers as a team name "must go." On the heels of the Washington Redskins retiring its name and mascot amid pressure from critics and corporate sponsors, an op-ed written by Attiah made the case that "to know the full history of the Texas Rangers is to understand that the teams name is not so far off from being called the Texas Klansmen." Growing up in Dallas, Attiah recalled going to Rangers games with her father as a child, but not realizing at the time that the Rangers...

    The NFLs Washington franchise announced on Monday that it is officially retiring the Redskins part of its name. What will they go by now? We have no idea. Its a weird move to announce a name change without a new name, and a theory is emerging that would explain why the club decided to do it that way. According to several Washington Post reporters, the preferred pick for the teams new name is already trademarked by someone else, and the two parties are now fighting over it.

    The only trend to be seen is in the amount of these articles. Over the weekend The Washington Post had a lengthy piece on the alleged surge of Republican groups that are emerging to oppose President Trump and back Joe Biden. If they are to be believed, The Never-Trump Movement Becomes a Campaign Force, but in order to be believed you need to overlook a reality; these are many of the same names we are already familiar with in this "movement".The piece opens by highlighting a video, uploaded by a disenfranchised Trump voter who declares he is so fed up with...

    Joe Biden is looking at building 500 million solar panels, slashing U.S. carbon emissions within 15 years, and rapidly expanding a government-sponsored health care plan. He wants to overhaul the way policing is conducted on American streets and the way success is measured in primary schools. Over the past week, the presumptive Democratic nominee has offered the biggest burst of policy proposals since he effectively won the nomination, including a plan to spend $700 billion on American products and research. It marks a significant move to the left from where Biden and his party were only recently - on everything...

    Virginia Ginni Thomas, the prominent conservative activist married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recently denounced a DC-area Black Lives Matter banner. Black Lives Matter is a Trojan Horse for mob rule and cultural revolution, Thomas wrote in a June 24 email to Clifton, Virginia, officials, the Washington Post reports. Thomas, who is white but whose husband is the only black Supreme Court justice, is influential in her own right in DC and in White House meetings and has pushed President Trump to pick more conservative aides. Thomas objected to a banner that reads Welcome to Clifton where Black Lives...

    Breitbart ^ | 10 July 2020 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    A team of economists has published a National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) working paper that accuses Fox News host Sean Hannity of killing thousands of people through misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic. The paper, Misinformation During a Pandemic, was funded by the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago, but largely consists of partisan hackery dressed in statistical models to smear a popular pro-Trump voice. To begin with, at least one of the authors of the paper, David Yanagizawa-Drott, appears to dislike President Donald Trump intensely. He complained in 2017 that then-New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady supported...

Now, with the passage of her so-called "Amazon Tax," the Socialist Alternative party member, Kshama Sawant, is making it clear that her legislative measures are only part of a much larger agenda. Calling the passage Tuesday of a more than $200 million tax on top of the 3% city tax on corporations "a historic victory for working people," she warned Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos "and his class" that she and her allies are "preparing the ground...

Gen. Michael Flynn (US Army Ret.) Sullivan is asking for an en banc hearing by the entire eleven judges on the appeals court.

  • ABC/WaPo Poll: 15% of Bernie supporters will vote for Trump as Biden faces massive enthusiasm gap in general election

    Indeed, strong enthusiasm for Biden among his supporters at just 24% is the lowest on record for a Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years of ABC/Post polls. More than twice as many of Trumps supporters are highly enthusiastic about supporting him, 53%. Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump. From the ABC News poll write-up: Former Vice President Joe Biden has emerged as Democrats top choice for the presidential nomination in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, but with only bare majority support within his...

    The public perception problems for Joe Biden are growing. Hes not all there, as is obvious from his disastrous livestreams and TV interviews, and has all but disappeared during the Wuhan coronavirus crisis. A just-released ABC News / Washington Post poll reveals another problem, one that comes as no surprise: Democrats are not enthsiastic about Biden, even as he racks up delegates and appears headed to the nomination. Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump.

    Unlike the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Braves will not consider changing their team name. Though, the organization is discussing whether to keep the traditional Tomahawk Chop. The Atlanta Braves honor, support and value the Native American community. That will never change, the Braves said in a statement. However, as the Athletics Ken Rosenthal reports, the team is not yet decided about whether to keep the Tomahawk Chop.
