Conservative columnist: GOP is doomed because young people see it as 'the dumb party'


Quote:
“Young people have made up their mind about the Republican Party, that it’s kind of the dumb party. These are the same young people who say they have warm feelings about socialism, but all they mean by that is … to them socialism means everybody being sociable and being nice to one another, they haven’t thought it through. Because these same people who like socialism are suspicious of government. So I think that they’re unformed at this point, but the Republican Party is doing its very best to drive them away permanently.”

President Trump has repeatedly struggled to explain why the number of jobs created during his presidency compare unfavorably with the employment figures under former President Barack Obama.

Allegations against indicted House Republican get even worse

06/25/19 12:40 PM—UPDATED 06/25/19 12:48 PM
By Steve Benen
Quote:
As a rule, when people talk about politicians being in bed with lobbyists, the rhetoric isn’t intended to be taken literally.

There are exceptions.

Justice Department prosecutors alleged on Monday that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) used campaign contributions to have multiple extramarital affairs, including a $1,000 ski vacation with a female lobbyist.

According to the court filing, Hunter started using the campaign funds to “carry out a series of intimate relationships” with five women soon after he first entered office in 2009.

The first woman (“Individual 14”) was a lobbyist. For about three years, Hunter dipped into his campaign contributions to pay for a couple’s ski getaway (which cost more than $1,000), a road trip to Virginia Beach, and hotel stays, according to prosecutors.

TPM’s report added that the Republican congressman’s alleged relationship with the lobbyist ended in 2012 – he’d been married for roughly 14 years at the time – though prosecutors have accused Hunter of having four other affairs over the course of the four years that followed. Donors allegedly picked up the tab for expenses related to each of the relationships.

While these claims against the indicted GOP lawmaker will still need to be proven in court, the allegations do help contextualize matters a bit.

In case anyone needs a refresher, the GOP congressman and his wife were charged last summer, and the criminal indictment was quite brutal: federal prosecutors alleged that the Hunters stole more than $250,000 in campaign funds and used the money to pay for personal purchases, ranging from trips to school tuition to dental work to veterinary care.

As if that weren’t enough, the Hunters allegedly went to great lengths to cover up the scheme: according to prosecutors, they made fraudulent claims that their purchases were for charities, including veterans’ charities. A Washington Post report added that the prosecutors’ allegations “read like a caricature of a corrupt, greedy politician.”

The California Republican’s defense has evolved a bit over time.


Hunter initially suggested the charges were a partisan scheme concocted by Democrats. This was literally unbelievable: the charges were brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego, which is led by a Trump appointee, who was chosen for the post by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Soon after, the congressman seemed to blame his wife, telling Fox News, “She was also the campaign manager, so whatever she did that’ll be looked at too, I’m sure. But I didn’t do it.”

Though both of them initially pleaded not guilty, that changed two weeks ago, when Margaret Hunter changed her plea, admitted that the allegations raised by prosecutors are true, and gave every indication that she’s now cooperating with the prosecution.

It stands to reason her husband’s alleged “series of intimate relationships” had something to do with her decision.

Postscript: The last time I wro

Donald Trump trips up on history in 4th of July speech, mentions airports during Revolutionary War
More
Quote:

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump read most of his Independence Day speech from a prepared text, but stumbled on his history at one point: He talked about airports during the American Revolution.

"Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over airports," Trump said of the fighting force created by the Continental Congress in 1775.

There was no air travel in 18th Century America.

The full riff:

"In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief. The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown.

"Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory. And when dawn came, their star-spangled banner waved defiant."

What the last Nuremberg prosecutor alive wants the world to know
At 99, Ben Ferencz is the last Nuremberg prosecutor alive and he has a far-reaching message for today’s world

It is not often you get the chance to meet a man who holds a place in history like Ben Ferencz. He's 99 years old, barely five feet tall, and he served as prosecutor of what's been called the biggest murder trial ever. The courtroom was Nuremberg; the crime, genocide; and the defendants, a group of German SS officers accused of committing the largest number of Nazi killings outside the concentration camps. More than a million men, women and children shot in their own towns and villages in cold blood.

As we first reported two years ago, Ferencz is the last Nuremberg prosecutor alive today. But he isn't content just being a part of 20th century history -- he believes he has something important to offer the world right now.

Doesn't Dean realize that the only person at his party is Dean?
Does that surprise him?
Is that why even he calls it a dumb-as-a-rock party?
What's he doing ... arguing with himself?
Man, he's going to lose that argument all day.
The TOTAL IQ at his party might reach 100.
If one Dean gets high -- which seems to be quite frequent -- are all seven blottoed?
Can seven Deans scour the internet for posts to mindlessly clip and paste seven times as fast as one Dean?
If so, we're in deep doo doo.
Do ya think two more guests will arrive now ... Dean and
Dean?
But, hey ... at least there's now one non-blank post in this thread.
