Video: Never Trumper Jennifer Rubin Says the Republican Party Must Be “Burned Down” in Order to Save It

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin speaks on AM Joy – 8/25/19. Screen grab via MSNBC.

There are unhinged Never Trumpers. And then there is Jennifer Rubin, who never passes up an opportunity to show off what she firmly believes are her “woke” creds when in the presence of like-minded commentators.

The faux “conservative” Washington Post columnist appeared on MSNBC’s AM Joy show on Sunday to discuss with a panel of fellow Trump-hating Democrats the absolute horror (sarcasm) of Sean Spicer getting a dancing gig on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

The entire segment, in fact, was devoted to discussing just how wrong it was for any former Trump administration official to be able to enjoy life in any capacity after working for the “racist” in the White House who, in the minds of the panelists, has done horrible things to the Latino community.

Host Joy Reid teed up Rubin’s unhinged rant by asserting that “this was an extreme administration that is dangerous.” Reid also stated that if you are Latino, you should always carry your birth certificate because you might be “scooped up and stolen” by ICE. “But yet it’s fine. Go and dance on TV. It’s just incredible,” concluded an outraged Reid.

Rubin then weighed in. Here’s what she said (as transcribed by The Blaze):

“What we should be doing in shunning these people,” Rubin said. “Shunning, shaming these people is a statement of moral indignation that these people are not fit for a polite society. I think it’s absolutely abhorrent that any institution of higher learning, any news organization or any entertainment organization that has a news outlet would hire these people.”

“It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose,” the columnist continued, as other panelists nodded in agreement. “We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them, because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again. They will take this as confirmation that, ‘hey, it just pays to ride the waves look at me I made it through.’”

“And so up and down the ticket, federal state and local offices, the country has to repudiate this,” Rubin added. “It is not a normal administration.”

Watch video of Rubin’s remarks below, courtesy of Newsbusters:

Rubin’s comments were an echo of statements she made in July 2018 on how all Trump administration officials should be shunned and harassed publicly as a “life sentence” of sorts for their role in the administration:

Ironically, it is fake Republicans like Rubin who are destroying the fabric of our society as we know it by siding with extremist Democrats like Reps. Maxine Waters and AOC in calling for shunning, ostracizing, harassment, and confrontation of Republicans they don’t like.

Rubin likes to talk about how this administration is supposedly not a “normal administration.” In actuality, what is not normal is that she sees fit to call for the current and former Trump administration officials to be trailed by protesters wherever they go.

Imagine how she’d react if her logic was applied to her? She’d go on Reid’s show to complain about how hateful and deranged Republicans have become.

Rubin has become a one-trick pony. It’s tiresome and sad, really. Maybe by 2020 she’ll finally do what she should have done a long time ago: Switch her party registration to Democrat.

GENIUS: Monopoly Socialism Boardgame TAKES Your Money For Passing Go.

Westlake Legal Group monopoly-man-300x200 GENIUS: Monopoly Socialism Boardgame TAKES Your Money For Passing Go. socialism Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception 2019

CHRISTmas is just 124 days away and lucky for you I have found the PERFECT gift for you to give the person who thinks that Karl Marx was a righteous dude.

Hasbro has released this game and those who believe that the government taking the majority of what you earn for the “good” of the whole do no find this funny. Take for example Rafi Schwartz over at Splinter News as he opines…

Socialism! It’s not just a school of political thought predicated on the equitable division of labor, resources, and benefits. It’s also, for some inexplicable reason, the theme of a new spin-off of the classic board game Monopoly.

That “Monopoly: Socialism” (featuring the taglines “what’s yours is ours” and “winning is for capitalists”) exists at all is depressing in and of itself, given the constant right-wing scaremongering about the U.S. turning into Soviet Russia if, god forbid, people were given adequate healthcare. But, it also seems to be profoundly—if predictably—lame as hell.

Ahhhhh you can just hear the proletariat whining about once again being shown for having little or no sense of humor. Good thing we do have adequate healthcare in this country or these dear souls, (If they believe in that sort of thing) would surely perish if we did not. Just remember that more Canadians come here for “healthcare” than United States citizens go there. We don’t need to wonder why do we?

All political and economic systems are FLAWED so let’s get that clear. Those countries that are driven by capitalism though have done far more for the world than Socialism, Communism or a weak Monarchy. Why is it that the Republic of the United States with Capitalism as it’s economic underpinning in less than 150 years flourished like no country in the history of man? The reason why is that it allows those to earn and create and keep the majority of that. The forced redistribution is a motivation killer and has proved over and over again to not deliver.

Which is the second part of those systems involved pretty much a death toll unlike any in human history. Josef Stalin made Hitler look like he was moving in slow motion in comparisons to what he did to his own people in the ole Sovie Union.

That Monopoly has a game that helps give simple highlights to this, of course, drives out friend son the left nuts. Thye cant grasp why others don’t see the virtue in taking from those that can to those that maybe don’t want to today. Amateurs.

As Rafi points out very ironically in his last paragraph…

In the meantime, there are a million better ways to spend game night than getting beaten over the head with cheap shots aimed at marketing capitalism to a crowd of people who will forever believe the game when it says “lousy neighbors, vegan meatloaf, and bad plumbing” are the inescapable hallmarks of socialism. Try Clue. At least that one has murder, which is always fun for the whole family.

Always comes back to murder if you don’t do what the dear leaders want.

So rapscallion of those peace-seeking vegetarians.

The Left Is Celebrating David Koch’s Passing, Ignorant of How Much they Agree With Him

When a famous conservative person dies, the classless parts of the left come out of the woodwork. Today, we sadly saw the passing of David Koch, a billionaire philanthropist. Koch passed away at 79 years of age after over two decades of battling with cancer.

Koch’s legacy is a net positive one for America, as he was often on the front lines of fighting for freedoms from a libertarian standpoint. Be it same-sex marriage or gun rights, Koch supported personal freedoms first.

As such, he understood that it was the right that was more in line to protect personal freedoms and often found himself opposed to Democrats. Despite his support for stances that Democrats find holy, giving money to Republicans is an unforgivable sin. Given this fact, the left consistently demonized the Koch brothers as one of the evilest institutions in America.

Go figure.

So when Koch died, you can bet there was a celebration by those completely ignorant of what Koch really stood for. As Shapiro noted, the absolute glee from leftists shows just how horrible our political conversation has become.

A perfect example is Rob Sheridan, comic creator and art director for the band Nine Inch Nails.

Sheridan received his just deserts for such a post almost immediately but swept it off as an attack by Russian bots.

Others joined in the chorus according to Twitchy.

It gets worse, as Koch’s death has even inspired people to go after his brother Charles.

For all intents and purposes, the left should have at least been able to find common ground with Koch. He supported women’s causes, broke with the GOP when it came to gay marriage and the war in Iraq, and even supported delving deep into how much funding the military really needs.

He won’t be remembered for these things. In fact, the left probably doesn’t know about any of these stances at all thanks to the efforts of media outlets painting him as the boogie man of the century.

It’s sad that we’ve gotten so nasty in our political discourse that a man who was one of the best shots at bridging the political divide will never get a chance to do so thanks to the way those in charge of information dissemination demonized him. It’s even sadder when you see how hateful people have become, even toward a man they should respect.

Adam Schiff’s Under Threat of Being Unseated by a Drag Queen – Because America Needs ‘More Everyday People in Congress’

Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff’s got someone gunnin’ for his seat.

Earlier this year, in a hip area of LA, history was made: A drag queen was elected to local government.

And now that dandy dude — who snagged a place on the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council — is comin’ for Adam.

That’s right: In 2020, the entertainer known as Maebe A. Girl will be maybe a congressman.

According to Route Fifty, Maebe will go face-to-heavily-made-up-face with Adam in an open primary.

Maebe considers Adam an ally of homosexuals. But he believes the gay community needs an actual gay person in the House of Representatives defending their interests, not just some friend of theirs tryin’ to get the job done:

COUNCIL UPDATES! Last night at the SLNC Governing Board Special Meeting we approved our 2019-2020 budget, $14,300 of which will be designated for Neighborhood Purpose Grants. If you or someone you know is part of a 501c3 organization in Silver Lake, inquire with the SLNC about how your organization can apply for a grant.

Right now, Washington’s all messed up — Congress is full of rich white guys. Maebe wants to fix that hogwash; it’s time for Capitol Hill to get some regular ol’ everyday-American folks:

“We need more everyday people in Congress—its overwhelmingly older, white, wealthy men, and that’s just not representative of America, or my district.”

So does Maebe wanna be a congressman or congresswoman? Well, as per People, he identifies as transgender, which means, of course, he fancies himself female. But he also considers himself gender fluid, which — I’m assuming — means he’s neither and both and other sexes, too.

He’s the real him, and he’s also Maebe:

“People will say ‘I can’t take her seriously with that name, but it’s really just a statement about gender norms. I don’t feel like there’s a difference between Maebe A. Girl and me.”

In 2018, Adam received over 75% of the vote.

But Maebe’s got a secret weapon:

“It’s…hard for people to ignore you in drag.”

Absolutely true.

Maybe we’ll see Adam rise to the occasion and fight fire with fire. Maybe he’ll become Adaline Schiff.

Maebe.

Pants on Fire! CBS Host Explains Why U.S. Doesn’t Have Universal Health Care

Westlake Legal Group new-york-times3 Pants on Fire! CBS Host Explains Why U.S. Doesn’t Have Universal Health Care NY Times - Everything is tied to slavery Nikole Hannah-Jones Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism healthcare Government Gayle King Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats dean baquet Culture Allow Media Exception 2020

Mainstream media outlets are falling in line with the decree issued by New York Times’ executive editor Dean Baquet last week which demanded that virtually everything be tied to slavery.

CBS host Gayle King did not disappoint during an interview with Nikole Hannah-Jones, a writer for the New York Times. It was Hannah-Jones who penned the essay which introduced the newspaper’s new initiative, the “1619 Project.” The exchange can be viewed in the video below.

King, who has adopted the new narrative eagerly and completely, said, “The thing that’s so amazing about this that makes me so proud, you can look at just about anything happening in the world today and tie it to slavery…You look at the naming of Wall Street. You look at sugar that we eat. But the thing that stuck out to me was health care, you can tie health care to slavery.”

And Hannah-Jones responded:

We’re the only western industrialized country that doesn’t have universal health care. It starts with opposition to universal health care that occurs right after slavery when the Freedsmen’s Bureau was trying to offer free health care to the formerly enslaved and there was opposition to that. And so even today, you see with polling white Americans will reject social programs if they think large numbers of black people will benefit from them. So, the harms from slavery have not been contained because there are millions of white Americans, there are millions of Latinos and Asians and black Americans who don’t have health care, who can’t get insurance because of slavery.

That’s some profound analysis from Hannah-Jones. It’s so ridiculous, it’s difficult to take seriously. Universal health care was not even a thought in 1865 when the U.S. was reeling from a long and bloody war that had nearly torn apart the country.

Approximately 625,000 white American men had just died in a fight to eliminate slavery. According to Ancestry.com, this number is greater than the number of American deaths in “both World Wars, Korea, and Vietnam combined. This amounted to 2 percent of the population at the time, which would be equivalent to about 6 million Americans dying today.”

Hannah-Jones would like us to believe the U.S. doesn’t have universal health care in 2019 because white Americans were opposed to providing free health care to former slaves 154 years ago.

On the contrary, it might surprise these ladies to hear that following the Civil War, from 1865 to 1870, the U.S. government provided free health care to over one million sick and dying slaves. The government established the “Freedmen’s Bureau” which built 40 hospitals and employed over 120 physicians.

Perhaps most important is that prior to the early 1900s, no governments were in the business of providing healthcare to their citizens. Blacks weren’t excluded from federal healthcare. There was no federal healthcare.

There were two exceptions. In 1798, President John Adams signed a public health law called “An act for the relief of sick and disabled Seamen.” Every seaman paid 20 cents per month which paid for marine hospitals to be built and for the care of sick and disabled marines. It covered no other segments of the population, not even the spouses of covered marines.

Additionally in 1854, the “Bill for the Benefit of the Indigent Insane passed both houses of Congress, but was vetoed by President Franklin Pierce.” His reason? “The federal government should not commit itself to social welfare, which should be the responsibility of the states.”

The next time the issue of federal government involvement in healthcare was raised was by then-former President Theodore Roosevelt (he was out of office at that time) who ran for president in 1912 and campaigned on “sickness insurance.” He was defeated and that ended that.

European countries were the first to pass any form of social welfare. In 1911, the United Kingdom passed the National Insurance Act of 1911 that provided medical care and replacement of some lost wages if a worker became ill. It did not, however, cover spouses or dependents.

It wasn’t until the Great Depression until the government became involved in social welfare.

This brief history indicates that, outside of the seaman’s monthly premium system, the federal government did not provide healthcare for any of its citizens, white, black, Native-American or otherwise until President Roosevelt’s New Deal in the 1930’s. It simply was not even on the government’s radar until then.

The fact that the U.S. government has not passed universal healthcare is because the majority of American voters oppose it. This has zero, zip, nada to do with race or slavery and everything to do with defeating Trump. To suggest otherwise is to be disingenuous. This is BS and I think both Hannah-Jones and King  know it is.

Maybe we shouldn’t be so hard on them. After all, they’re just following orders.

Democratic Congressman Tells His Swing District: We Need Illegal Immigrants to Mow Our Beautiful Lawns

Westlake Legal Group grass-4102398_1280-620x413 Democratic Congressman Tells His Swing District: We Need Illegal Immigrants to Mow Our Beautiful Lawns washington D.C. Uncategorized tom malinowski Politics New Jersey mowing lawns jobs americans won't do jobs Illegal Immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story elections Dirty Jobs democrats Congress Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

During a “Coffee with Your Congressman” event in a wealthy New Jersey suburb Tuesday, Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski reminded voters why they need illegal immigrants: to “[mow their] beautiful lawns.”

He explained:

“We have to think about the jobs, because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that — like it or not, for better or worse — Americans are not willing to take.”

This is a notion offered up by politicians for several years now; it’s also an idea — it should be noted — that’s a big hunk o’ baloney.

If the pay is fair for the work, whatever the job, there are Americans ready to do it.

Just ask Mike Rowe (here); not everyone’s in training to be a software applications developer.

But Tom doesn’t believe that:

“I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal – most of them documented – but certainly some of them are not. Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask, but a lot of those workers are undocumented.”

There are also American teenagers mowing lawns, and American adults with lawncare businesses — in areas or situations where they haven’t been priced out of the opportunity.

Tom wanted all of y’all to know that teenagers now are too consumed with robots to push a mower:

“There just aren’t a lot of kids who – sorry – are from Montgomery High [School], who are going to be doing that full time. You guys are going into robotics, for goodness sake.”

Amid the crowd, a young person interjected that they work at a place teaching kids to code their own video games.

Tom replied, “You work at Code Ninjas — exactly. You’re a bunch of elitists. You’re not going to mow lawns.”

Here’s perhaps a shock for Tom: For many Americans of all walks of life, it isn’t about whether the American teenager down the street or the American-owned company in town or an illegal immigrant is going to mow their lawns.

For many, many Americans…

…brace yourself, Tom…and Beto…and Nancy…

…many Americans…

mow their OWN lawns.

They actually own mowers and use ’em.

Without any help at all from illegal immigrants.

Or anyone else.

Tom needs help himself: This is only his first term in Congress, and he’s in a swing district. The promise of a second term is tenuous.

But this ain’t his first political rodeo: he was Obama’s Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.

Recently, Mr.Malinowski became the first swing-representing Dem to endorse the impeachment of Donald Trump.

That seems risky, but I don’t have time to think about it — I’ve got other articles to write.

And yardwork to do.

Texas Has a Growing Homeless Problem, and California May Shoulder a Good Deal of Blame

Westlake Legal Group AP_18152597516332-620x309 Texas Has a Growing Homeless Problem, and California May Shoulder a Good Deal of Blame Texas San Francisco republicans progressives News los angeles immigration homeless Front Page Stories feces Featured Story Drugs disease democrats California austin Allow Media Exception

The issue of homelessness in Texas has been on the rise, specifically in its capital of Austin.

According to the Washington Post, staunch Democrats in Austin have expressed a desire to switch parties purely out of the way the city has handled homelessness, which lately, includes allowing them to sleep anywhere they’d like:

But as Paul, 50, sprawled out shirtless on the sidewalk on a 100-degree day, shop owner Craig Staley stood a few feet away on Congress Avenue reconsidering his party affiliation.

“I got two emails last month from customers who said, ‘I can’t go to your store anymore because it smells like urine,’” said Staley, who operates Royal Blue Grocery. “I am a Democrat at heart; I have been in Austin, Texas, for over 30 years. But I am telling you, I am feeling a lot more red these days when it comes to my business.”

Over the past couple of months, Governor Greg Abbott has been giving the issue his personal attention and considering actions to take against the Democratic leadership of Austin for its allowance of homeless people to take over the streets. As he does this, Austin Mayor Steve Adler is going to California to talk to leaders who specialize in creating the problem for advice.

In fact, the policies surrounding the homeless in Austin look a lot like the kind seen in San Francisco and Los Angeles, both of which have a level of homeless so extreme that medieval diseases are making a comeback. This is on top of the mounting drug problem and excess of trash that litters the streets. In San Francisco, the homeless problem also comes with seeing an inordinate amount of used needles littering the sidewalk and a feces problem.

Austin seems to be heading in the same direction.

“They thought it would be compassionate and not a big deal, but it has been an absolute disaster for this city,” said Matt Mackowiak, chairman of the GOP party of Travis county according to WaPo. “This is our best example of [liberal] overreach, so we have been very strategic focusing on this issue.”

According to Austin’s homeless, California may be partly to blame for the rising tide.

“They said there is a waiting list of at least six months,” Curtis Underwood, a homeless man said. “I guess I need to get a job, but the rent is so expensive because all the people from California are moving here.”

As businesses move to Texas, it brings with them their coastal employees. The rent skyrockets, driving people into the streets. However, it may not just the economy doing so either. The rate at which the homeless are growing is monumental, and it may be that the homeless in California are hearing about the opportunities in Texas and are heading there themselves.

They’re heading there with the help of the state of California, no less.

According to a 2017 article from The Guardian, California has been bussing out its homeless problem for some time, essentially paying for bus tickets out of the state and sending them elsewhere, using America’s national bussing companies as a valve to release pressure on itself. Texas is likely one of them, especially with its business boom giving out of state officials the idea that warmer climes and better business opportunities may give them a good chance of getting back on their feet.

There has yet to be a hard count on the number of homeless people California has bussed to Texas, but we do know that California’s impoverished do like to migrate to the Lone Star State. A 2017 article from the Sacramento Bee shows that when it comes to those in California who live below the poverty line, most choose Texas:

The leading destination for those leaving California is Texas, with about 293,000 economically disadvantaged residents leaving and about 137,000 coming for a net loss of 156,000 from 2005 through 2015. Next up are states surrounding California; in order, Arizona, Nevada and Oregon.

All told, California lost about 260,000 economically disadvantaged residents to the 10 states with the lowest cost of living during that time period, compared to a net gain of about 40,000 from the 10 states (other than California) with the highest cost of living.

It’s not unreasonable to assume many of the homeless would choose a bus ticket out of town for the greener, job-filled pastures of Texas.

So we have Californians moving here to drive up the rent, Texas Democrats getting advice on how to handle it, and California likely bussing its homeless to Texas.

After Slamming Fox for Hiring Sarah Sanders, CNN Jumps the Shark and Hires Disgraced FBI Official Andrew McCabe

Yesterday, Tater and his hirsute minime excited each other into an orgasmic frenzy over former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders being hired by Fox News. Their tiny fists of fury were flailing about because you apparently allowed to have anyone who actually knows anything they are talking about on staff as a contributor according to CNN’s policy and having someone who does know what they’re talking about was perceived as being unfair. My colleague, Sister Toldjah, covered their righteous indignation.

All of this is pretty rich coming from a network that pushed the Russia Hoax for hundreds of hours and basically let Michael Avenatti live in their studio:

Apparently, there is no sense of irony–or shame–remaining at CNN because they’ve now announced the hiring of disgraced, fired former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. I SWEAR I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.

Just to review the bidding. McCabe was in open and notorious violation of the Hatch Act while serving as James Comey’s catchfart. He appeared in his wife’s campaign literature. His bio was included in her file when she was interviewed by the VA Democrat apparatus as a potential state senate candidate. He used his official FBI email to pimp his wife’s candidacy. He was at ground zero when the Steele dossier was passed off as something more that political pornography to justify a FISA warrant on Carter Page. He authorized leaks to the press about the Clinton investigation. He was central to the decision to whitewash the investigation of Hillary Clinton and he lied to IG investigators about his role in that decision. McCabe appears to have been a central figure in launching the Russia Hoax investigation as a way of damaging the incoming Trump administration.

With that kind of bio and personal ethics, McCabe will feel right at home at CNN.

Democrats Eat Their Own…Again

Is this Bernie Sanders Part Deux? Over at American Thinker, Monica Showalter has a piece out showcasing what appears to be yet another case of the Democrat Establishment slapping down someone who steps out of line. It seems that according to rapidly changing debate qualification rules, Democrat Candidate Tulsi Gabbard might not qualify for the next Democrat Presidential debate, despite having the requisite poll numbers and more than enough discrete, individual donors. From the article

Iconoclastic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard did the unforgiveable in the eyes of the hidebound Democratic Party establishment: She knocked down one their favorites, Kamala Harris. 

Ms. Showalter points to a Real Clear Politics article for some of the detail, but her analysis is what really hits the mark. She points out that this is obviously retribution against Representative Gabbard (a combat vet) for taking out, in just 30 seconds during the last Democratic Presidential debate, who many believe is the Obamas’ chosen successor, Kamala Harris.

This raises the question of if this was ‘punishment’ for that ‘little misdeed’ around Kamala Harris at the last debate. Nobody messes with Kamala, or so it seems, so now Tulsi must pay a price.

Showalter provides two additional major clues for her position.

One, the herd is not really being culled for Debate Three.
Democrats are still going to be taking Marianne Williamson into the debate as well, along with this lengthy list of pipsqueaks and other obscure characters listed below. Just not that woman in the white pant suit who is remembered for the debate’s most memorable moment in Debate Two, the takedown of Kamala Harris.

Two, Google seems to have already done a number on Gabbard, taking down her paid-for campaign ads during the first debate when Internet viewers’ interest in her spiked to the highest levels of all the campaign. Google, most of the reporting has neglected to note, is brimming with former Obama administration operatives. Democrats, the pillars, the money, the establishment. Might that suggest some sort of fix in for Gabbard as well? It’s pretty obvious something is going on.

I believe Ms. Showalter is spot on. The question is, will Bernie Sanders be a man and step up? Will he point out this travesty and yet another example of Establishment Democrats picking the nominee over the objections of their voters?

Not Even Bill Kristol Is Serious About Joe Walsh Giving President Trump a Primary Challenge

All the rage among Bulwarkians and NeverTrumpers is the idea that they will recruit someone to primary President Trump. The main candidate apparently is Joe Walsh. That would be the former congressman and talk show host, not the Real Joe Walsh

Joe Walsh, a conservative radio show host and former Republican congressman from Illinois, is expected to announce he is running for president as early as this weekend, presenting President Trump with a challenger from the right his critics hope will weaken the president in the 2020 election.

Mr. Walsh is being encouraged by William Kristol, the conservative writer and former editor of the now defunct magazine The Weekly Standard. Mr. Kristol has been a “Never Trump” Republican since Mr. Trump was elected in 2016 and has been working hard over the past year to recruit someone to run against him.

Mr. Kristol said Mr. Walsh’s comfort with the in-your-face format of conservative talk radio makes him a potentially more effective combatant against Mr. Trump than someone like William Weld, the genteel former governor of Massachusetts, whose own primary challenge to the president has gained little traction.

“He has a different appeal than Bill Weld,” Mr. Kristol said. “The fact that he was a Tea Party congressman who voted for Trump in 2016 gives him an ability to speak to Republican primary voters that ‘Never Trumpers’ like me don’t have.”

Just a few facts are in order.

Walsh ran for Congress as a moderate and a pro-abort. His challenge to Trump is not from “the right,” to the extent that Walsh’s as yet unannounced campaign is a challenge, it is straight from the GOPe types.

Other than making a career out of hating Trump, it is difficult to see what Walsh brings to the table that would attract anyone not on Pierre Omidyars’ payroll. Walsh won one of his three elections. So it isn’t like he’s a terribly successful or astute politician. If you are looking for some kind of break from Trump’s checkered personnel life, well, you won’t find Walsh banging porn stars but, according to he “watchdog group” Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)–I’m only using them because for a while it was fashionable here to quote whatever bullsh** they were throwing at Trump and billing them as some high minded civic group instead to the leftwing suckweasels that they are:

Court records show Rep. Walsh was ordered to pay his ex-wife $2,134 a month in child support beginning in November 2005, but he made only partial payments through March 2008. Between April 2008 and December 2010, Rep. Walsh allegedly made no payments at all, leaving him with a debt of $117,437.25. The congressman failed to disclose this obligation on his personal financial disclosure forms.

Rep. Walsh’s reports of his income have been inconsistent. He told a reporter his 2009 income was between $30,000 and $40,000, and he reported about $65,000 to the IRS. On his financial disclosure forms for the first 9 months of the year, he claimed $21,000 in earned income with an additional $20,000-$60,000 in other income. On the other hand, he told his ex-wife he had no income, and in a 2011 court filing reported just $29,000 for the year.

Oddly enough, Rep. Walsh also paid $3,300 per month in rent in 2009, totaling almost $40,000 for the year, which would have left him penniless or in debt. Nevertheless, Rep. Walsh still managed to loan his election campaign $35,500 between November 2009 and August 2010.

The freshman congressman has a long history of financial problems, including tax liens, lawsuits regarding failure to pay debts, and a foreclosure on a condominium.

So you have all the bad stuff but of the most banal and uninteresting kind.

If you objected to Trump and his flirtation with birtherism…

racism, you say…

Essentially what you have is a very weak retail politician with more baggage and less support that President Trump.

Nope. Whatever the question is, Joe Walsh is not the answer. This is, at best, a publicity stunt and given who is involved, you know there has to be grifting out the wazoo. But don’t worry. Bill Kristol has cast a wide net and there are more waiting in the wings.
