    Former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R-N.J.) said during an Axios News Shapers event Wednesday that a part of her hopes "all the crazies do win" during next week's midterm elections so that Americans realize the consequences before the next presidential election. Driving the news: "But then I realize no, I don't want to live in that world and I don't want to leave it for my grandkids either, the damage they can do." Whitman told Axios' Alayna Treene that the Republican Party has become a "cult," and added "there's no set of central principles on which it's based." Whitman and...

    Ahead of the Department of Justice’s filing Tuesday night that opposed President Trump’s call for a "special master" to review White House documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, seven former federal prosecutors filed an amicus brief asking a Florida federal judge to deny his request. Former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, Donald B. Ayer, Gregory A. Brower, John J. Farmer Jr., Stuart M. Gerson, Peter D. Keisler, William F. Weld – who all served in Republican administrations – called Trump’s request a "waste of time." The motion said the former prosecutors have a "special interest" in the...

    Dozens of former Republican and Democratic officials announced on Wednesday a new national political third party to appeal to millions of voters they say are dismayed with what they see as America's dysfunctional two-party system. The new party, called Forward and whose creation was first reported by Reuters, will initially be co-chaired by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey. They hope the party will become a viable alternative to the Republican and Democratic parties that dominate U.S. politics, founding members told Reuters. Party leaders will hold a series of...

    The Washington Post ^ | July 31, 2016 | Michael S. Rosenwald
    The modern era of mass shootings began here on a searing summer day in 1966. Just before noon, from high atop the University of Texas Tower, an ex-Marine sharpshooter named Charles Whitman leveled his rifle over the railing, peered through his scope and shot a pregnant student in the belly. He hit her boyfriend in the neck. He shot a teenager in the mouth. Blasting at victims 500 yards away, the 25-year-old engineering student fired at will for 20 minutes — the time it took for students and residents to fetch their own high-powered rifles and shoot back, helping an...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Add one more group of contests to the white-hot races for Congress and governor that will dominate this year’s midterm elections: secretaries of state. Former President Donald Trump’s attempts to reverse the results of the 2020 election and his subsequent endorsements of candidates for state election offices who are sympathetic to his view have elevated those races to top-tier status. At stake, say Democrats and others concerned about fair elections, is nothing less than American democracy. “If they win the general election, we’ve got real problems on our hands,” said former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman,...

    Lehigh Valley Live ^ | 10/19/2021 | Aaron Southwick
    Motorists seeing billboards with the words “Trump lost” may think it’s the work of a Democratic organization, but that’s not the case. A group called Republicans for Voting Rights is financing the billboards, which are popping up in some locations across the country, including the Harrisburg area. A billboard is positioned on the interchange of Route 581 and Interstate 83. The group says it is spending $250,000 on billboards in Pennsylvania and several other states where election reviews are being considered: Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Virginia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Florida. In Pennsylvania, Republican lawmakers, who control the General Assembly, are moving...

    Two GOP officials have urged Republicans to vote Democratic in the 2022 midterm elections to bolster the party from candidates they described as "pro-Trump extremists." Miles Taylor, a Trump-era Department of Homeland Security chief of staff, and Christine Todd Whitman, a former Republican governor of New Jersey, wrote a New York Times op-ed that ran Monday. Taylor is best known for anonymously writing a 2018 op-ed article in The Times describing a "resistance" of Trump administration officials working to tamper what he called the former president's "worst inclinations." Together, Taylor and Whitman asked that the GOP's base consider supporting Democrats...

Hasan said, “You have GOP governors like DeSantis and Abbott who have allowed COVID to run rampant in their states. You have Sarah Huckabee Sanders running for governor of Arkansas and saying stuff like this.”

    As I post this in Australia, it is still 26 March in America, the 128th anniversary of Walt Whitman’s death. I invite Freeepers to reflect upon freedom via this collage of Whitman with some of my own thoughts: Does Trump rediscover Whitman for America in …….. ………… his celebration of people scorned by Obama and Clinton as clinging and deplorable? ………… and in his urge to keep working when medical science around the world is saying stop and self-isolate? If we have to self-isolate, is there any place better to do that than in the glories of Walt Whitman?...
  • Thoroughly Democratic Whitman contrasted with European Beethooven

    03/26/2020 7:28:21 AM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 11 replies
    Donald Trump won the presidency by tuning in to the hearts of Americans who had been left out. Are his current public ruminations on the nature of the American people and what sort of responses America CAN make to the C-19 crisis showing the same insight into his people? How Whitmanesque is he in this democratic capacity of tuning in to a national psyche? I have contrasted the thought of Whitman and Beethooven who both died on the same day, March 26, at different ends of the nineteenth century: Both are undeniable giants in The West, but in Whitman...

  • Want multi-cultural freedom? Read Walt Whitman!

    Late last century, when the internet was much younger, some very talented people helped me with a profoundly cross cultural album that could only ever work if it was done in a spirit of freedom. I tried to write the words to express that myself but in the end I couldn’t. I had to borrow words and revise them for the context from Walt Whitman. Where else could I look when I needed to talk about new frontiers of freedom. God Bless America.
  • Former GOP N.J. governor blasts fellow Republicans over impeachment vote

    Former Gov. Christie Todd Whitman this weekend assailed her fellow Republicans in the Senate for blocking a call for more witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Whitman, a moderate Republican who served as governor of the Garden State from 1994 until 2001, said on Twitter it was “mind boggling” that the Senate would vote, nearly along party lines, to disallow witnesses from testifying in the proceedings. Trump was impeached by the House last month on charges that he abused power and obstructed Congress as he tried to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden, using military...
