Published

A Republican women’s group in California is planning an African-themed fundraiser for later this month featuring “birther” filmmaker Joel Gilbert.

Gilbert — a Bob Dylan impersonator who has directed several films promoting conspiracy theories about Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley and President Barack Obama — will speak Aug. 20 at the “Taste of Kenya” dinner hosted by the Monterey Peninsula Republican Women Federated.

Gilbert will discuss his film, “Dreams From My Real Father,” which speculates that Obama’s biological father was anti-racism activist Frank Marshall Davis — who he describes as a “communist propagandist.”

The filmmaker and musician will also show video excerpts of his interview with Malik Obama, the president’s older half-brother, and his latest anti-Obama film, “There’s No Place Like Utopia.”

“We will toast the end of an era as Mr. Obama begins to wind down his Presidency and fades into history,” the GOP group, which is affiliated with the Monterey County Republican Party — which will host the event at its headquarters.

Each $30 minimum donation will go toward the group’s scholarship or general funds.

The group’s members will prepare and serve Kenyan cuisine as appetizers, although no menu was publicized.

"I think that Birx and Fauci have gone well past their, their -- they've expired, their time of usefulness has expired," Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said.

"What they do, is when the president comes out and makes a policy -- because he is the president, he is the policymaker. When they come and make these statements that they make, they engender panic and hysteria and undermine what the president's doing. That's what I think's critical," they argued.

Texas conservatives lose their minds after GOP Gov. Greg Abbott mandates masks in public

Published

on

Texas' Republican Gov. Gregg Abbott finally acknowledged that there is a serious problem as COVID-19 takes down the state's population.

It was just a few months ago that municipalities were deciding for themselves when and if they would reopen. But Abbott shut it down, saying that his orders "overrule any local jurisdiction."

In April, "Abbott and the state’s other Republican leaders have blasted local officials in Dallas and Houston for what they called overzealous enforcement of COVID-19 regulations, first zeroing in on Democratically led Harris County’s decision to fine residents for not wearing face masks, a penalty Abbott banned in his April 27 reopening order," ProPublica reported. "The fights came to a head this month with the arrest of a Dallas hair salon owner who refused to shutter her business, an act of defiance that was supported by a right-wing group that launched a GoFundMe campaign a day before she reopened that raised $500,000 before it was disabled."

Published

on

On Thursday, Politico reported that it could take a decade for unemployment levels to return to where they were before the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

"The economic outlook for the next 10 years has 'deteriorated significantly' since the independent budget agency issued its last complete set of projections in January, CBO noted," reported Caitlan Emma. "That illustrates the devastating effects of the pandemic and underscores the reality of a slower economic recovery than the 'rocket ship' rebound predicted by President Donald Trump."
