Ex-American Nazi Party leader runs unopposed for Republican congressional primary in Illinois

Published

on

A known Holocaust denier and former Nazi leader is the only Republican running for the GOP nomination for Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.

The Chicago Sun-Times described candidate and retired insurance agent Arthur Jones as “an outspoken Holocaust denier, activist anti-Semite and white supremacist.” He admitted to the newspaper that he was a former leader of the American Nazi Party and that his current group, America First Committee, bars Jewish people from joining.

Jones’ campaign website, ArtJonesForCongressman.com, includes a section titled “Holocaust?” that features photocopied pages for typewritten fliers that describe “the Holocaust racket” as “the biggest, blackest, lie [sic] in history.” He suggests that “a few professional concentration camp survivors” promote the conspiracy, an idea which appears to predate the modern concept of “crisis actors” paid to enact “false flag” attacks that trick the public into believing atrocities have happened.

When asked by the Sun-Times about his views, the candidate explained that he’s “running for Congress not the chancellor of Germany.”

“To me the Holocaust is what I said it is,” Jones said. “It’s an international extortion racket.”

This is the eighth time the 70-year-old candidate has run for the Republican primary in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District, all of which he lost.

The Illinois Republican Party rebuked the candidate in a statement, saying their chapter “and our country have no place for Nazis like Arthur Jones,”

“We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District,” Tim Schneider, a spokesman for the party, told the newspaper.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
