Also 100% sickening to watch @Jim_Jordan beclown himself by attacking an innocent, dedicated public servant considering Jordan went full-on Mr. Magoo with the sexual predators at Ohio State.

#Strzok #StrzokTestimony

<_<

Jughead Jordan and his lapdog sidekick, Matt Gaetz are shameless.

Oliver Darcy Retweeted Brian Tashman

In light of the Mueller indictments, I called @newtgingrich to see if he would like to apologize to the Seth Rich family for peddling the conspiracy theory that Rich was killed for supposedly leaking the DNC docs to Wikileaks.

 

"No. Goodbye!" Gingrich told me before hanging up.

Florida Republicans play starring roles in Russia hacking indictment

"Two Florida Republicans and possibly a third — Rep. Brian Mast — play starring roles in the indictment, although none is named.

 

Unlike President Donald Trump‘s former political adviser Roger Stone and political operative Aaron Nevins, Mast’s identity is the least certain of any of the Florida Republicans hinted at in the indictment. The indictment released Friday details how a dozen Russian military officers used an online persona called “Guccifer 2.0” to disseminate information they stole from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic National Committee, which was led at the time by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.).

Almost as soon as the indictment was released Friday, Florida Republicans, Democrats and even allies of Mast speculated that the congressman’s campaign was likely implicated — in great part because a former campaign consultant for Mast admitted last year to The Wall Street Journal and then to POLITICO that he used some of the hacked information in 2016...........

Never Trumpers Will Want to Read This History Lesson

In the 1850s, disaffected Democrats made the wrenching choice to leave their party to save American democracy. Here’s what happened.

 

 

"....As often seems the case today, American politics in the 1850s were nearly all-consuming and stubbornly tribal. So it was hard—and bitterly so—for hundreds of thousands of Northern Democrats to abandon the political organization that had long formed the backbone of their civic identity. Yet they came over the course of a decade to believe that the Jacksonian Democratic Party had degenerated into something thoroughly autocratic and corrupt. It had fallen so deeply in the thrall of the Slave Power that it posed an existential threat to American democracy.

 

Placing the sanctity of the nation above the narrow bonds of party, these Democrats joined in common cause with former Whig antagonists in the epic struggle to save the United States from its own darker instincts....

...today’s Never Trumpers face a stark choice: passively acquiesce to the further ascent of Trumpism, or switch parties and play a vital part in stopping it.

If they do choose the latter, they might be surprised at the result: Like the GOP’s founding generation, in the process of leaving a party they once loved, today’s Never Trump Republicans might also free themselves from partisan dogmas that have lost relevance in the current age.....

Southeast Ohio Republican Party leader resigns over Trump-Putin meeting

 

I remain a proud conservative and Republican, but I resigned today as Belmont Co Ohio GOP Chairman. I did so as a matter of conscience, and my sense of duty.

-- Chris Gagin (@cgagin) July 16, 2018

 

The President is entitled to GOP party leaders, at all levels, fully committed to his views and agenda. Following today's press conference with Pres. Putin, as well as certain policy differences, most especially on trade, I could no longer fulfill that duty. Thus, I resigned.

Revisionist history.  In 1850, the Republican Party became an effective party based on the ruins of the Whig Party. In 1860, the national Democratic Party (still Democratic) split into two wings - Northern and Southern splitting the vote in every state. There was also the Constitutional Union Party.  Therefore four parties.  Together the Northern and Southern Democrats received more popular votes than Lincoln, but fewer Electoral College.  Would one Democrat have won the election?  Possibly.

During the Civil War, the Democrats wielded considerable power in Washington and the Northern states.  Gen George McClellan ran against Lincoln as a Democrat in 1864 and received 45% of the popular vote in a two man race.

The Democrats did not leave their party and went on after the Civil War and Reconstruction to eventually become the dominant party.  Now in 1964, the white racist did leave the Democrtic Party to join the Republican Party.

If they did leave the party in 1850-1860, where did they go?  They did not become Republicans.

And they will probably be afraid to hold Town Hall Meetings as well.

However, the American people will meet them at The Ballot Box in November.

.@RepRohrabacher isn't sure if he’s the congressman mentioned in the indictment of a Russian gun-rights activist for acting as an unregistered agent of the Kremlin

— but he is sure that the charge against Maria Butina, @NRA lifetime member, is “bogus.”

Rohrabacher still has a slight lead in his So Cal district,  but it is getting smaller by the day.

His Dem challenger is already using this story and I believe it will help defeat this a-hole.

"Republicans want to argue that Russia did something wrong to influence the election’s outcome,

while rebuffing questions about whether the outcome of the election was wrongly influenced.

 

This is not a sustainable position," argues @davidfrum:

GOP caught ignoring evidence Russia used NRA to help Trump

 

Newly revealed emails show that an NRA official served as conduit between Russia and the Trump campaign, but Republicans refused to investigate it — raising questions about what is hiding behind the door that they're too scared to open.

.......in recent months, the NRA has faced increasing scrutiny amid allegations that it accepted illegal contributions from Russians to help the Trump campaign.

The group spent an estimated $35 million on the 2016 presidential election, including $21 million to support Trump’s campaign and another $14 million to attack Hillary Clinton. That adds up to more than its combined spending in all races during the 2008 and 2012 presidential election cycles — and some reports suggest that the true figure may be twice that much

Naturally, those eye-popping figures raised some questions about where all that money came from.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the NRA’s finances, with a specific focus on whether Torshin, who was recently sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department, may have funneled money through the NRA. In addition, the FEC is reportedly looking at whether Russian entities gave illegal donations to the NRA that were intended to benefit the Trump campaign.....

Republican Texas State Rep. Jason Villalba Calls For Trump’s Impeachment

The legislator from Dallas called on Americans to reject becoming “sordid, ugly, Trumpists who require anger and vitriol.”

 

Texas state Rep. Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) warned Americans that they will be “equally culpable in what [Trump] has planned for our great nation” if they don’t take immediate action against him.

“We are better than what this president suggests we are,” Villalba wrote in an opinion piece Wednesday in The Texas Tribune’s “TribTalk.”

“We eschew ugliness and divisiveness,” he continued. “Donald J. Trump is no longer our leader. It is time to push him into the ash bin of history.”............
