Lincoln Project Swamp Creatures get Rich Quick

Lincoln project

The Lincoln Project’s Band of Brothers—initially four financially strapped, embittered middle-aged white male Washington insiders—lectured the country that those few, those happy few, that band of brothers would fight for us. If only they were adequately funded, they could save us from the moral turpitude of four more years of Trump.

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Professor Hanson above is describing four establishment Republican campaign consultants dedicated to defeating Trump and electing Joe Biden.

Donors and lucrative on-line anti-Trump ads solved the inadequate funding problem by raising ninety million dollars. But half of that went to firms run by the founders.

And as for moral turpitude, twenty-one men accused co-founder John Weaver of sexual harassment.

Co-founder George Conway is calling for an investigation. His wife is former Trump counselor Kelleyanne Conway.

And another co-founder, Steve Schmidt, has also pulled out.

Red-faced About Virginia Blackface Succession

The first time I heard of Dr. Ralph Northam was when a campaign ad hit the news during his recent run for governor of Virginia. The ad portrayed Northam’s Republican opponent Ed Gillespie as a racist pervert in a pickup truck terrifying small children.

Next time I heard of the good doctor he was Governor Northam. And he was describing how a baby surviving a late term abortion would be kept comfortable while the parents and doctors decided its fate.

Then came the two guys in klan gear and blackface on his med school yearbook page. Followed by his moonwalk press conference and his confession that he dressed in blackface for a Michael Jackson dance contest. He says he won.

Red-faced

Red-faced Democratic elites called for his resignation. Until the next in line of succession, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, was accused of sexual assault. (Btw, he’s being represented by Brett Kavanaugh’s attorney while his accuser is represented by Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney.)

Anyway, next man up is Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring. Oops, more blackface.

Next in line? Virginia House Speaker Kirk Cox, a Republican

Trump’s Speech

President Trump’s speech from the oval office was short and sweet. He demanded five and a half billion for a border wall, or barrier, or something sticking out of the ground, but didn’t declare a national emergency.

Base Fear

Marc Theissen thought it was great. Trump reached out to Americans beyond his base.

But Chuck and Nancy thought otherwise. Nancy says the wall is immoral. Chuck said Trump used the oval office to manufacture a crisis. And they both looked stiff and uncomfortable.

Could be they were looking to reach beyond their base too.

Shutdown Timeout

Trump says $5.6 billion isn’t much for border security.

Pelosi says, “We are giving the Republicans the opportunity to take yes for an answer,” “Senate Republicans have already supported this legislation, and if they reject it now, they will be fully complicit in chaos and destruction of the President’s third shutdown of his term.”

But no money for a wall.

They’re meeting this afternoon in the situation room.

It’s election day house keeping time. Nancy Pelosi guarantees victory. But Mike Pence says, not in our House. We’ll soon see.
