"These proposals are based on the lies that sought to undermine the will of the voters in our democracy last year. And they should be seen for what they are: an extension of those same lies, seeking to continue to undermine the will of Michigan citizens."

I like this Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. I imagine a few ancient FOX followers keeled over when they heard her speak truth.

Republicans who backed Trump impeachment see fundraising boost
Most of the Republicans who publicly went against Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol saw their 2021 first quarter hauls increase from their 2019 hauls during the same period. Two of Trump’s most high-profile critics in the House received a major financial boost in particular: House GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.) raised $1.5 million at the start of 2021 compared to $321,000 during the same period in 2019, while Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) brought in $1.2 million during the first three months of the year compared to $326,000 in 2019.

These assholes need to go.

It is really getting dangerous with the little white power party who snuck into office when nobody was looking. Thanks goodness for 2018, hopefully the trend can continue here.
All those post industrial working class white guys, the residue of the auto industry. That and of course rat fucking the state with Gerrymandered districts.

Republicans who fought Biden certification see massive plunge in corporate donations: report - Raw Story - Celebrating 17 Years of Independent Journalism

Republicans who fought Biden certification see massive plunge in corporate donations: report
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, GOP lawmakers who attempted to block the certification of Joe Biden's 2020 election win over Donald Trump have seen a massive drop in donations from corporate PACs.

The report notes an 80 percent drop in the first quarter of the year as Republicans took in only $1.3 million from business groups and trade organizations, compared to $6.7 million donated by the same groups in the first quarter of 2019 after the 2018 midterms.

The report adds that PAC money to Democrats and Republicans who voted to certify the results were only down about 30 percent and 35 percent respectively.

The Journal goes on to add that some the GOP lawmakers who saw their business PAC money shrivel up did see a surge in dollars sent by small donors.

"PAC money isn't critical to some high-profile politicians who voted against certifying the election results such as Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R., Ga.), whose campaigns are heavily funded by small online donations. All three raised upward of $3 million in the first quarter of this year for their campaign committees, " the report states. "Ms. Greene didn't receive any corporate PAC donations and brought in roughly 80% of her campaign money from people who donated $200 or less in the first quarter. Roughly a third of the Republican objectors saw small-dollar donations increase by 10% or more compared with the same period in 2019."

I hate to piss on their parade, but if Donald endorses any republican candidates, it will be from prison. After the hammer falls on Donald he will have little interest in politics, his problems will be more immediate. Mitch is just waiting him out before he makes any moves, the republican party is a confused mess and the article gives some clues about this. Most of those running are either running away from the central question or sucking Trump's ass, though some opposition is emerging. I'm hoping the GOP will split into two wings, because of ballot issue access issues, they won't split into the Trumpers and conservatives along regional lines.

If Donald is sitting in prison, I figure he will be so pissed off that he might go after republicans who won't run on somehow springing him from prison (impossible). If he turns on them or some of them and can get the word out (a big problem for him now and a bigger one in prison) he could make 30% or more of the GOP base stay home during the election in some places. I figure by just not being on the ballot 10 or 20% of the base and many of those who showed up in 2020 will stay home.

‘Trumpiest Trumpster of the bunch’: GOP gets a gut check
The question isn’t whether Nebraska Republican candidates must embrace Trump. It’s how tightly.

Will Donald speak out on this? Not likely, his position is slowly weakening in the party of his creation, now that he's off twitter. His position and influence will diminish further when the hammer falls and he's wearing an orange jump suit with little hair. America's biggest loser will still impress some though.

Blow back? I wonder how many times she was called a fucking idiot in the congressional cafeteria by fellow republicans. :lol: Not for moral or ethical reasons mind you, but as a matter of pragmatism.

Marjorie Taylor Greene scraps planned launch of controversial 'America First' caucus amid blowback from GOP - CNNPolitics

Marjorie Taylor Greene scraps planned launch of controversial 'America First' caucus amid blowback from GOP
(CNN)Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is scrapping the planned launch of her "America First" caucus after receiving blowback from leaders in her own party, despite confirming through a spokesperson on Friday that the caucus would launch.

Nick Dyer, Greene's spokesperson, told CNN in an email on Saturday afternoon the Georgia Republican is not "launching anything."

"The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved," he said in an email to CNN, referring to a flier promoting the caucus, obtained by Punchbowl News, that used inflammatory rhetoric.

He added that "she didn't approve that language and has no plans to launch anything."
This is a reversal from Friday, when her office said she would launch the caucus "very soon."

His bullshit about 'I don't know about (the racist platform in the Republican party) is mainstream'. I forgot how slimy he was.

Trump was the Republican POTUS, it doesn't get much more mainstream than that.

Don't think I agree with the article's take, that he's saying Obama shares the blame for racist elements in the republican party. Sounds more like he's complaining about Obama pandering than anything.

But I have noticed something odd about racists, which is that if you present a black person in front of a person that doesn't like black people, they blame the black person. Apparently black people are supposed to know their place and not exist in front of racists, or else any feelings stirred up are the fault of the black person.

That's the party of family values and personal accountability for ya.

This is interesting, Steve Schmitt is back as a guest on the Lincoln Project for most of the video and has something to say. It was a live stream and long but informative. These political operators have some useful insights into the republicans, they've cleaned up their organization and reset. I like these guys and know what they were and who they worked for, but Trump and Trumpism shocked them to their senses, they are really liberals and are fighting for the liberal cause.
