    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...

    Former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R-NJ) said Sunday night on MSNBC’s “The Mehdi Hasan Show” that Republican leaders had blood on their hands over how they have managed the coronavirus pandemic. 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.”

The Democratic National Convention Committee announced that former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman and former Congresswoman Susan Molinari of New York, all Republicans, will also speak Monday.

  • Reflecting on the current state of Freedom with the words of Walt Whitman

    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...

    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...

    Former Gov. Christie Whitman says she stands by a tweet she deleted in which she compared President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. The Republican tweeted Hitler "has nothing on" Trump. Whitman's tweet was in response to reports that a violent parody video depicting a likeness of Trump shooting and stabbing opponents and members of the media was played during a conference at his Miami golf resort. Whitman tells WNBC-TV in New York the comparison was "inflammatory", but she hoped the shock value would make people realize the severity of the situation. Whitman says she is "really frightened for the country."...

    If you want fresh evidence that Donald Trump has turned American politics upside down, here it is: Former Gov. Christie Whitman, a lifelong Republican, is so appalled by him that she wants Democrats to take over the House. "I'm hoping we lose the House, that would be a good thing," she said Friday. "Congress could stand up to him and could be dialing back a lot of this. They have ceded too much to this president." But be careful, she says. Don't kill the moderate Republicans, they are the ones who can help steer the country back to safe ground....

    By Alan J. Steinberg As a "Never Trump" author and governmental veteran, I feel that the most concise and accurate summary of the nightmare of Trumpism was given recently by the renowned conservative historian Max Boot in the Washington Post: "The current GOP still has a few resemblances to the party of old -- it still cuts taxes and supports conservative judges. But a vote for the GOP in November is also a vote for egregious obstruction of justice, rampant conflicts of interest, the demonization of minorities, the debasement of political discourse, the alienation of America's allies, the end of...

    TRENTON, Nov. 29— Democrats today abandoned their effort to keep Christine Todd Whitman from becoming governor of New Jersey, acknowledging that they had found no proof that she won the election because of efforts to suppress minority voting. From the start the Democrats had acknowledged that their civil suit was a long shot with only the slimmest of chances of preventing the Jan. 18 inauguration of the first woman ever elected Governor of New Jersey. Still the decision to back off from the suit, a week before a judge was scheduled to rule, was important both legally and politically for...
