Anti-Chris Christie PAC shutting down because his campaign tanked without their help

Published

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Fox News on Nov. 10, 2013.

A PAC set up by former Congressman Tom Tancredo to stop New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie from becoming president has announced it is formally shutting down because PAC officials believe Christie’s “miserable showing”  has doomed his campaign without their help.

In a post found on the Stop Chris Christie Facebook page, treasurer Tom Bjorklund copied an email sent to  FEC  officials who questioned the PAC’s relationship with the floundering candidate.

Bjorklund agreed that the PAC was not affiliated with Christie and had, in fact, been established before the New Jersey governor threw his hat in the ring. Having explained that, the treasurer described the group’s future plans by saying  they had decided to shut down because there were no longer needed.

“Having clarified our intent when we established the Stop Chris Christie PAC, the point is rather moot, since we have every intention of stopping our PAC and closing within the next 30 days (on or before September 25, 2015),” he wrote.

He continued, “Our decision to cease and desist as a PAC is not due to your letter, but instead is based on recent polling and the miserable showing of the candidate in question (namely Chris Christie). Our committee believes that Mr. Christie has already performed the service of stopping his campaign in spirit, (without our aid) even if not by the letter of the law.”

Bjorklund said the PAC would use the next 30 days to tidy up some loose ends and pay off any vendors.

According to the latest Real Clear Politics polls, Christie is currently in 10th place with 3.3 percent of the GOP vote, behind former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and slightly ahead of former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

Trump’s new anti-mask rhetoric is the last gasp of a ‘flailing campaign’: Paul Krugman

Published

on

In a column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman pondered why Donald Trump is once again ramping up his anti-mask rhetoric at a time when his health care advisors are urging the public to keep wearing the protective coverings. He then concluded it is nothing less than a cynical political maneuver by the president that will likely lead to more deaths.

Earlier this week the head of the CDC urged Americans to keep using masks, saying it was their best defense against becoming infected with COVID-19 only to have the president undercut that message on the same day.

Politico reporter Tim Alberta, a former National Review writer who is deeply sourced in the world of Republican politics, believes that President Donald Trump's campaign knows that it is quickly losing ground in two key swing states as it heads into the final stretch of the 2020 presidential election.

Writing on Twitter, Alberta says that Michigan and Arizona are two states that "Trump World knows have slipped, and may be unrecoverable" for the campaign. Additionally, he believes that Wisconsin, another state that Trump won unexpectedly in 2016, "isn't far behind."

Trump calls Howard Zinn’s work ‘propaganda’ — hear the legendary historian in his own words

Published

on

This week President Trump described the work of the legendary historian Howard Zinn, who died in 2010, as “propaganda” meant to “make students ashamed of their own history.” But Zinn believed the opposite, that teaching the unvarnished truth about history was the best way to combat propaganda and unexamined received wisdom. We air excerpts from a 2009 interview with Zinn in which he explained his approach to education. “We should be honest with young people; we should not deceive them. We should be honest about the history of our country,” Zinn said.
