White nationalists see opportunity to pack Trump administration: ‘We are the new GOP!’

Published

on

White nationalists are working to identify their “top people” — or at least any racist with a college degree — to staff a potential Donald Trump administration.

William Johnson, chairman of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, and other organized racists who back the Republican presidential nominee see a chance to set White House policy if Trump is elected next month, reported The Guardian.

Johnson, who briefly was a Trump delegate from California, and Richard Spencer, director of the National Policy Institute and originator of the term “alt-right,” believe Trump might pack his cabinet with white supremacists.

“I want Jared Taylor [of American Renaissance] as UN Ambassador, and Kevin MacDonald [an evolutionary psychologist] as secretary of health and Ann Coulter as homeland security,” Johnson said, recalling a conversation he had with Spencer three months ago.

Spencer said at the time that his wish list was “a pipe dream,” but now they believe it could become a reality.

“If Trump wins, all the establishment Republicans, they’re gone,” Johnson said. “They hate him! So who’s left? If we can lobby, we can put our people in there.”

Johnson and other members of his white nationalist organization, which is working to turn the United States into a white-only ethnostate, have been poring over “The Plum Book” that lists thousands of civil service positions in the federal government.

“It’s plum because of the color, but also because of the plum positions – there are 20,000 jobs in that book that are open to a new administration,” Johnson said.

“So we need to identify our top people!” said Eric, a neo-Nazi who moved on from Buddhism to Norse and Celtic religion.

“Just anyone with a college degree!” Johnson said.

The Guardian reported that Eric was practically bouncing in his seat with excitement about helping to serve as Trump’s transition team.

“We need to get the word out,” Eric said. “We are the new GOP!”

‘Don’t let him rewrite history’: GOP ex-congressman slams Trump for painting fewer than 100,000 COVID-19 deaths as a victory

Published

on

At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press conference, President Donald Trump reiterated his claim that if fewer than 100,000 Americans die from COVID-19, it will be a victory for him.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had none of it.

He ignored the warnings. He ignored the scientists & doctors. He refused to prepare. He lied about the virus. This country wasn’t ready. People got sick. People died. People lost their jobs. Because he cared more about himself than the country.

Don’t let him rewrite history. https://t.co/9snqoJ1VQI

Wisconsin GOP plots to strip Democratic governor of more power — a day after forcing voters to stand outside in a pandemic

Published

on

This week, Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature have faced national fury after their successful lawsuits blocking Democratic Gov. Tony Evers from delaying the election and extending absentee voting.

But just one day after tens of thousands of voters were forced to stand in public lines and risk COVID-19 exposure just to exercise their constitutional right to vote, the Wisconsin GOP found yet another way to weaponize the pandemic for partisan gain.

According to Molly Beck of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Republicans in the legislature have slipped a provision into the state's relief bill authorizing unemployment disbursement under the federal CARES Act, that would allow the state's Finance Committee to make budget cuts without input from Evers — stripping him of power at exactly the moment when the public would be looking to the governor for help.

CDC quietly deletes hydroxychloroquine guidance as study hyped by Trump comes into question

Published

on

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday quietly removed bizarre guidelines for using the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for the new coronavirus. The unproven treatment has been repeatedly hyped by President Donald Trump in spite of the warnings of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The CDC published "highly unusual" dosing guidance based on "unattributed anecdotes rather than peer-reviewed science" last month amid pressure on federal health officials from Trump, Reuters reported. The agency now appears to have quietly removed those guidelines from its website this week.
