Well, just to show what kind of disaster Trump is.. a whole bunch of former GOP lawmakers endorse Biden on the first day of the RNC national convention.

Democratic campaign launches '''Republicans for Biden''' as Flake, former GOP lawmakers endorse him - ABC News

On the first day of the GOP convention Monday, Democratic nominees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris picked up support from 27 former GOP members of Congress, including former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump before and after retiring in 2018 -- in the latest act of defiance from Republicans against the sitting president who represents their party.

This is not because Biden is so good, but it's because Trump is so bad. I see this kind of support as a 'one off' until Trump is out of office. I believe that the people who are doing that is not because they support the Democrats or the Democrats policies, but rather they want to see the Republicans return to normal. I don't know if that's possible at this point, but I am sure that is their hope.

I suspect that these people will be attacked as 'RINO' and 'trump haters', rather than patriots and putting country before party.

The Republican ad groups and theses sane Republican groups certainly help. Today’s already had multiple events aiming for the news cycle.

Biden and Harris should be traveling safely and campaigning at safe events this week in the eight Midwest states that are so crucial to this election.

This would be in comparison to what Air Force One did last week, getting Big media coverage for free. Separate the candidates at times. Take NO weeks off.

Actual conservatives need to take their party back from the racist, fiscally irresponsible, America hating Trumpists that stole it.

So do the more moderate Republicans. The entire country would benefit.

You know all these people ARE actual conservatives, right? That is why they are doing it: to show Republicans the problem with their own party is Donald Trump and his corrupt buddies, not the ideologies they stand for.

If any Democratic politician openly supported Trump, they would be censured or forced to resign. Just like Whitsett.

The Republican Party allows freedom of thought. Which is a positive thing.

Escaping corruption by joining the party of Bill Clinton?

And violent Marxists and anarchists?

it's the party of Joe Biden and (mostly) decent people who recognize that the Trump mafia (selling hate and racism) isn't what American wants/needs.

Isn't this the Lincoln Project hiding under a different name now that most of them have gone to jail for corruption?

Pelosi’s father was actually a mafia associate, according to J Edgar Hoover.

Decent people? Biden cussed out an auto plant employee and yelled at a town hall questioner and called him fat. Angry people, maybe.

The Republican Party does NOT allow freedom of thought. Remember the backlash after Mitt Romney rightfully voted to convict Donald Trump? That was because all Republicans care about is worshiping Trump and acting like he can't do anything wrong except a first-term Senator who once ran for President. Lindsey Graham joined the "yes man" group when John McCain died despite being against Trump until that tragic event. Trump filed a lawsuit to prevent John Bolton's book about the Ukraine scandal from being sold anywhere. If Republicans had any freedom of thought, none of them would have voted for the worst American citizen.

It's funny how Communists never know what's going on - only what the little Goebbles of the CCP media tell them.


This, which MSNBCNN ignored and buried links right back to John Kasich - who just spoke at the Communist party convention, I believe...


{COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder and four associates have been arrested for racketeering in what the FBI is calling the largest bribery and money laundering scheme in state history.



Householder, 61, was arrested along with Neil Clark, Matt Borges (former Ohio GOP Chair), and Juan Cespedes. All men are lobbyists.

The speaker's political advisor, Jeff Longstreth, was also taken into custody.

The source said the arrests were connected to House Bill 6, the FirstEnergy nuclear bailout bill that was passed by the legislature and signed last year by Gov, Mike DeWine.

Court records said the Department of Justice alleges that "Company A" (FirstEnergy) paid $60,886,835.86 over three years into an entity controlled by Householder called "Generation Now" in return for passing House Bill 6.}

{“There’s a whole host of bodies [Householder’s] left behind and to me, it’s all about one’s ability to maintain integrity while they’re here,” Clark told the Daily Advocate. “Many people want to see a continuation of the honorable approach we’ve seen under (former Speaker) Bill Batchelder and Cliff Rosenberger. I don’t think anybody wants to go back to an old way of heavy-handedness.”

Now federal investigators are digging up those bodies and there’s no telling how many lawmakers and lobbyists will be caught up in the investigation. No doubt many of them are on pins and needles today waiting for a knock at their door.

It’s long past time for the corruption to be rooted out of the Ohio statehouse once and for all—and for an infusion of new blood in the House.}

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

{A recent poll conducted by UC Berkeley reveals that over half of California Democrats are in favor of free speech restrictions for white nationalists and other "hate groups."

According to the poll, 53 percent of the state's Democrats believe that white nationalists should not have the right to demonstrate, compared to 42 percent of the state's Republicans and 39 percent of independent voters.

Statewide, 46 percent of voters support free speech restrictions, 43 percent believe that there should be no restrictions, and 11 percent have no opinion.}

Poll: Over half of Calif. Democrats in favor of free speech restrictions - SFGate

Communists, when they aren't shamelessly lying, they are crushing civil rights with an iron fist and jackboots.

democrats are a clear and present danger to any and all liberty. NOTHING a CCP democrat hates more than a free American.

I am really confused.

Are you referring to me as a Communist? I'm not a communist. I'm a capitalist.

Are you suggesting I'm dishonest? I am being serious. I cannot find any association he has with the Lincoln Project. Would you like to show it to me?

I'm referring to Larry Householder of the Lincoln Project who was arrested by the FBI with several co-conspirators. One of the cohorts of Householder is John Kasich, a featured speaker at the Communist party convention last week.

America faces annihilation by the Communist party should they succeed in stealing the election in November. The Marxist democrats are merely the branch office of the Chinese Communist Party. Should Kamala Harris be made "president" of a vassal America, the Constitution and particularly the Bill of Rights are a thing of the past. The Communist party is a collection of drones who further the goals of the hive, the party - with no actual thought or reason. The views of a particular drone are irrelevant, the danger is the hive, the CCP democrat party.

We see in Kenosha, Seattle, Portland, Mogadishu, Long Beach, et al. what the rule of the Communist democrats brings.

I don't think Householder is involved with the Lincoln Project.

I could not find any association between him and the Lincoln Project.

Would you care to post a link or some evidence that Householder is associated with the Lincoln Project?

This isn't true at all. I don't think you understand what communism or marxism is.

Also, even the entire Republican Party believes in some mix of government involvement in the economy, as they all voted for PPP.

And so-called "libertarians" and "fiscal conservatives" were pigs at the trough:

In sign of the times, Ayn Rand Institute approved for PPP loan - Reuters

Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform took money from the Paycheck Protection Program.

Is the Ayn Rand foundation communist?

Is Grover Norquist a socialist?

The Republicans aren't any less in favor of government intervention in the economy, they just think a different group of people should receive government services and benefits...

The GOP is dead which began with Reagan/Bush. Hostile takeovers/leveraged buyouts/USA jobs going abroad, Supply Side Wreckanomics/Grover Norquist, anti women rhetoric, lying beyond reality, using sex as a character assassination tool, never answering questions
with clear concise answers etc etc etc began in earnest.... began with Reagan/Bush the list goes on and on. Meanwhile ALEC controls and owns the GOP. Trump must be the last nail in the coffin we can only hope.

Do you really want to play that game?

You’ve got 2 for Biden. Here’s 598 for Trump and it’s more than a year old! Angry maybe?

Trump’s father conspired with Trump and his siblings to steal hundreds of millions of dollars from the American people. Those mafia guys are small time crooks in comparison. Also, Chris Christie put Jared’s father in jail.
