    Republicans opposed to President Trump are quietly preparing to support Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, backing that could materialize in the primary as he attempts to fend off a surging Elizabeth Warren. Some Republican operatives active in Never Trump circles are discussing what form support for Biden might take and the timing. Groups such as Stand Up Republic, co-founded by prominent Never Trump Republicans Evan McMullin and Mindy Finn, could target disaffected GOP voters in key micro-battlegrounds with finely tailored advertising in a bid to boost Biden in the Democratic primary. Biden, 76, is the most likely Democrat to receive measurable...
  • Juan Williams: Why does Trump fear GOP voters?

    Last week former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley broke the Republican cone of silence by tweeting, “This can’t continue…,” as the federal budget deficit raced past $1 trillion under President Trump. Fear of a larger jail-break from the cult of enforced silence among Republicans about Trump’s failures is the big reason the president’s campaign officials have pushed state party officials to cancel Republican presidential primaries in Arizona, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina. And that fear explains why the Republican National Committee is withholding polling data on the president from GOP candidates for state and local offices.
  • Bill Weld: Impeach Trump, Even if He’s Reelected

    National Review ^ | 08/26/2019 | Jim Geraghty
    Republican presidential primary challenger William Weld recently offered the most drastic response to the idea of how Trump opponents should respond to his reelection: impeach and attempt to remove him from office, despite the voters’ verdict. “And I’ve long said that one of two things was going to happen: Either the sober second judgment of the community’s going to kick in, which may be happening in the last month or so. I think the president’s gone a little bit further on the proverbial limb in terms of lashing out all day long. And people will look at that and say,...

    Jansing: To be a mainstream Republican means to offend MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing referred to a Louisiana Republican's belief that there are only two genders as "incendiary" on Friday. Jansing and her panel addressed the GOP's relationship with women and the LGBT community, in the aftermath of the Log Cabin Republicans, a national LGBT group, endorsing President Donald Trump for a second term. "We've got an important question now," Jansing told viewers. "What does it mean to be a mainstream Republican? It is the question that some Republicans have been asking in the age of Donald Trump, and increasingly, it...
  • Anthony Scaramucci talks to Bill Kristol about trying to force Trump off the GOP ticket in 2020

    The “Never Trump” movement has a new ally: hedge fund boss Anthony Scaramucci, who was fired in 2017 after serving 11 days as communications director in President Donald Trump’s White House. Anti-Trump pundit and veteran Republican operative Bill Kristol confirmed to CNBC in a few brief text messages that he has spoken to Scaramucci since the SkyBridge Capital founder had a public falling out with Trump this summer. Asked whether he has spoken to Scaramucci about trying to find another presidential candidate to replace Trump on the top of the GOP ticket next year, Kristol said: “Yup.” But Kristol, who...
  • Anthony Scaramucci on Herald Radio: Trump would lose in GOP primary

    The Boston Herald ^ | August 15, 2019 | Alexi Cohan
    Ousted White House aide Anthony Scaramucci said he wants to see a 2020 GOP primary challenge to Donald Trump — and he predicts the president who fired him would lose. “I’m predicting he won’t be the nominee,” Scaramucci said about Trump, speaking on Herald Radio Thursday. He said Mitt Romney could “take on Trump handily” in the 2020 presidential election. Romney has not indicated he intends to make a third run for president. “Once we break the fever and the spell of President Trump we will get a few very, very qualified politicians,” said Scaramucci. Scaramucci, who has recently taken...

    The president’s comments were destructive, demeaning, and disunifying. The President of the United States has a unique and noble calling to unite the American people – of all different races, colors, and national origins. In that respect, the president failed badly.
  • Mitt Romney is congressional Republicans’ secret weapon on trade

    The Washington Post ^ | June 6, 2019 | Henry Olsen
    Republicans in Congress are confused about how to respond to President Trump’s multi-front trade war. With strong free-trade ideals but also cognizance of political and geopolitical concerns about Chinese competition, they stand paralyzed and inert. Mitt Romney can help them break out of their slumber. Romney, now a senator from Utah, is uniquely positioned to lead his Republican colleagues on trade policy. He is unquestionably a leader of the party’s business and establishment wings. Those elements are strongly opposed to trade restriction, and deeply uneasy about Trump’s tariff wars, and they want nothing more than a quick end to all...
  • George Will: Vote against GOP in midterms (6/22/18)

    The Hill ^ | 06/22/18 | Justin Wise
    Conservative columnist George Will is making the argument to vote against Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. In a piece published Friday in The Washington Post, Will says that President Trump's "zero tolerance" policy at the border was "the most telegenic recent example of misrule" and provided “fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which” independents and moderate Republicans should vote. That principle, he says, is that the number of Republicans in office must be “substantially reduced.” "The principle: The congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of...
  • Nasty Nicolle Wallace on Jared Kushner: 'Rot, Malignancy, Know-Nothing Nincompoop'

    There's plenty of competition for the title of MSNBC's nastiest liberal host. But let's award the dubious honor to Nicolle Wallace. Perhaps it's the passion of a convert to the liberal cause. But that would imply that Wallace was ever anything other than a liberal—even back in the day when she worked on John McCain's presidential campaign—and was doing her best to undermine Sarah Palin. Day after day on her MSNBC show, Wallace, with angry pursed lips, spews venom at all things Trump. Her target this afternoon was Jared Kushner. Reacting to his recent interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios,...

    Ask a Republican elected official in Utah if they're endorsing a second term for the sitting president of their own party and the answer should be obvious, shouldn't it? Apparently not if the president running for re-election is Donald Trump. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, answered that question from CNN's Jake Tapper recently by joking he wasn't ready to say yet if he's going to write in the name of his wife, Ann, in the 2020 presidential election, as he did in 2016.

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney broke with President Trump and the rest of his party Tuesday to oppose the confirmation of a federal judge who had referred to former president Barack Obama as an “un-American impostor.” Romney (Utah) was the only voting senator to break ranks on a party-line vote to seat Michael J. Truncale on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

    (CNN) — Attorney General William Barr did two strange things between the time he received special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and when he released it to Congress and the public. The first came on March 24 when, two days after receiving the Mueller report, Barr released a four-page summary letter in which he made clear his conclusion that the report found no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians and that Mueller hadn't made any recommendation as to whether President Donald Trump should be charged with obstructing justice. The second came on...

    ow many vicious, clever, angry, sputtering take-downs of Donald Trump is enough? If the president actually does something significant — as opposed to merely tweeting or saying something obnoxious or offensive — then pundits should certainly feel free to write about and denounce it. (I certainly do.) But the relentless, obsessive-compulsive focus on every Trumpian action and utterance by the likes of Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin, Michael Gerson, Bill Kristol, Peter Wehner, and a handful of other commentators is something else entirely. The Trump preoccupation says far more about the critics than the criticized.

    Children of LGBT parents can now be blessed or baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, church officials declared in a new policy on Thursday, dramatically reversing a 2015 decision that excluded those children from the rituals until they were 18. The church will also update its handbook for leaders, removing the label of “apostasy” for same-sex marriage.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is speaking out after his fellow statesman Rand Paul comes out against the president’s national emergency declaration at the border. On Monday, McConnell spoke to reporters in Louisville and said he believes, with Paul’s vote, the Democrat-led resolution to block the president’s order will pass in the Senate. He went on to say President Trump would most likely issue his first veto to strike down the bill. McConnell also predicted House Democrats will vote to override the veto, but said it would likely fail without a two-thirds majority of lawmakers. So far, four GOP senators...

    With Donald Trump’s proclamation of a phony national emergency in response to a phony invasion on our southern border, the country has entered a genuine constitutional crisis. Military funds have been diverted under emergency presidential authority only twice before in our history: by Bush 41 after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, and by Bush 43 following 9/11. Never before has a president run roughshod over Congress in this manner, abusing statutorily granted emergency powers for an obviously pretextual and nakedly political purpose, and thereby usurping Congress’s constitutionally allotted power of the purse.

    South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg entered the 2020 race for president on Wednesday, announcing his intentions with a video featuring scenes of him and his husband, Chasten, cooking and playing with their dog, Buddy. Should Buttigieg win his long-shot bid for the Democratic nomination, he will become the first nominee of a major political party who publicly identifies as gay. If he goes on to defeat President Donald Trump, it'd be a historic win.
