Republicans Don’t Have to
Nominate Trump in 2020

Original Article

Posted By: WhamDBambam, 10/1/2019 9:44:25 AM

Republicans have had their differences these past few years. Most have supported President Trump; a few have not. Some of the president’s supporters have been enthusiastic; many have not. Some of the reluctant Trump supporters have expressed reservations at certain times; many have not. But with the revelations of the last week, and the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry, we are at a new moment.

I don't know who I enjoy suffering more, Hillary! or Little Willie, former cruise ship captain.

Yes, enough of this messy winning business, Let us return to losing like gentlemen and then retire to the country club for a drink. Isn’t it sort of humorous that President Trump is the only one who actually owns country clubs,

It's a little late to give McCain another try, but Dole and Romney are still around. And of course Jeb ! is tanned, rested and ready for another rollout.

It's true we could nominate a RINO. But since secure borders and sensible immigration are in our national interest, why would we?

Bill Kristol, you are a traitor to the US Constitution. You use your bully pulpit at the NY Times, one of the most dishonest news outlets in the world, to run interference for a group of Globalists/Socialists led by George Soros. You and the rest of your kind regularly run roughshod over the Constitution, on due process, on individual rights, and are certainly NOT impartial in the opinions you express. You hate America, you hate Americans, and you embrace authoritarianism. You yearn for the day where the Constitution is shredded and would-be commissars have absolute power over the masses. You want to see everyone equally poor (except for yourself and the members of your ruling class) and dependent upon the gvt. You are TRANSPARENT, William Kristol. You belong alongside all the rest of the worlds socialist failures,

We nominated two candidates Bill loved - McCain and Romney - who ran hopelessly poor campaigns and handed the Presidency to Obama for 8 years. Both are loved by the elites such as Kristol. Both were voted for by flyover voters who had to hold their collective noses when at their polling sites. Kristol needs to come out to the middle of the country and get away from his lefty friends who are egging him on to write columns such as this. Maybe he'd learn why regular people like Trump and will crawl over broken glass to vote for him again.

"The GOP can do better"? Better than the lowest unemployment in history? Better than the biggest economic expansion in a President's first term? Better than the amazing foreign policy and foreign trade progress? Maybe a Bob Dole or John McCain? Yes, Billy... we could come up with a better GOP old school loser like you gave us for years, but not a better GOP Candidate.

Another twig on the fire, "social proof" that "moderate" Republicans have options that do not include renominating PDT. If this "impeachment" rubbish hits a crescendo in February, it is hoped by the GOPe to have an effect on PDT's campaign and re-nomination. Hubris, that he can't possibly lose, is part of what they are counting on from PDT's supporters. Another drip from the "opinion" faucet. See it for what it is...

Really, really get lost Kristol. You have zero support in the Republican Party, not even measurable. I support nominating and electing Trump in 2020, 2024, and 2028 to bring the Republican Party even with the Democrats and FDR. It is a war for this country, just like FDR, so we cannot afford to make a change during the time of war. Have a nice day, Kristol, not really.

Jonah Goldberg: Kayleigh McEnany’s Work

Conservative syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg slammed Kayleigh McEnany for her role as White House press secretary, calling her “grotesque” on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” After playing a clip of McEnany sparring with reporters, host Chris Wallace said, “Unmasking is pretty routine. It’s an effort by people in an administration to find out who a masked person is. It happens in the Trump White House. It happened I think 16,000 times the year before last. What’s a crime is leaking it, but unmasking isn’t. In addition to which, I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well.”

A forthcoming Australian scientific study concludes that the coronavirus causing the global pandemic contains unique properties suggesting it was manipulated in a Chinese laboratory and was not the result of a natural occurrence. Five scientists who conducted the study discovered an unusual ability of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as the pathogen behind COVID-19 is called, to easily infect humans. The scientists said there is no sign so far that the virus can be found in other animals, including bats or the exotic wildlife sold for fresh meat at a market in the Chinese city of Wuhan....

As far back as late November, U.S. intelligence officials were warning that a contagion was sweeping through China’s Wuhan region, changing the patterns of life and business and posing a threat to the population, according to four sources briefed on the secret reporting. Concerns about what is now known to be the novel coronavirus pandemic were detailed in a November intelligence report by the military's National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI), according to two officials familiar with the document’s contents.

There’s something my former CBS News colleague Lesley Stahl said a while back that continues to haunt me. It was something she says President Trump told her, off camera.... She says she told him that his constant bashing of the media was tiresome. “Why are you doing it?” she says she asked him. According to Stahl, (he) responded with this: “I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”

September 11, 2001 changed a lot of things for a lot of people. I’m no exception. Up until that monumental event I was only marginally political; I read the news, but hadn’t yet formed any sort of cohesive ideology. If anything, I was a fairly typical college student in the South, raised to respect tradition. A decade and a half after the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93, another monumental event would soon rattle my worldview and drastically alter my political trajectory. And then the planes hit the towers, and my obsession with politics began.

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.

An Arkansas woman is suing the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, alleging that he is the father of her baby. Thus far, she’s been unable to serve him with the papers, her attorney said. Lunden Alexis Roberts filed a petition for paternity and child support against Robert Hunter Biden in Independence County on May 28, days after Hunter Biden reportedly married another woman in California. The two-page suit states that Roberts and Hunter Biden “were in a relationship” and that “Baby Doe” was born in August 2018 “as a result of that relationship.” It doesn’t say how or where they met or offer other personal details.

It was a paltry total for a week in June, the final month of the annual session. What's more, two of the three were by unanimous votes and none made big headlines. But the term won't end this way. And much of the weight of this momentous session is on Roberts' shoulders.

Harvard Prof. Blames Christianity’s ‘Malignant’
Belief in Afterlife for Lockdown Protests

Posted by Zarin 5/24/2020 12:39:38 PM Post Reply
Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker said Thursday that the push for reopening society from lockdowns comes from Christianity’s “malignant delusion” of belief in an afterlife. Atheists who believe in this life alone are more concerned with health and safety, Professor Pinker suggested in a Tweet, while Christians tend to devalue “actual lives” and live a riskier existence. Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier. Exhibit A: What’s really behind Republicans wanting a swift reopening? Evangelicals. https://t.co/ppo2bwiVGn — Steven Pinker (@sapinker) May 21, 2020

But in an interview on ABC's "This Week" Sunday, one of the leaders of the government's response to the virus, said it is "difficult to tell" whether such a step may be necessary.

The cumulative effects of the coronavirus may be more overwhelming than the other challenges New York City has had to face during the past two generations, including the aftermath of 9/ 11. It is likely that the pandemic will simply accelerate the trend in the sharp decline of its population and livelihoods. New York City was already losing population before the outbreak due to economic factors and quality of life issues. Around 40,000 residents left between 2017 and 2018 alone. The
