“Trey Gowdy is [a] phony,” Dobbs said. “Think about it. He was in charge of Benghazi, he was in charge of various committees, but what did he do? Nothing! He’s never done anything!”

Dobbs then said Gowdy was working under the Obama administration because he wasn’t tough enough on Hillary Clinton.

“No indictments, no charges, no revelations, nothing has ever happened except he gets to have some terrific moments as I think he did with Hillary Clinton,” Dobbs said. “After 11 hours he just let her talk endlessly and never laid a glove on her. It was an amazing performance.”

Gowdy announced that he was retiring, and Dobbs said he was just a “lame duck.”

Even though this sentiment doesn’t reflect how he previously felt about Gowdy. In 2015, Dobbs tweeted: “It seems to me that Trey Gowdy is the natural and best choice to be Speaker of the House.”

Rick Wilson urges ‘humiliation and incarceration’ for the GOP’s ‘grubby sellouts’ who propped up Trump for 4 years

Published

Republicans know the end of Donald Trump's presidency is near, despite his increasingly desperate legal challenges, and former GOP strategist Rick Wilson won't be willing to forgive and forget.

Wilson, writing for The Daily Beast, imagines there will be a rush of Republicans to distance themselves from the soon-to-be-former president, but he said there will be copious evidence of lawmakers, governors and political professional debasing themselves for Trump.

Expert explains why ‘systemic conservatism’ continues to prevail in America

Published

on

On the Sunday after the November 3rd presidential election, Utah Senator Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, congratulated President-elect Joe Biden but insisted that the overall election was an endorsement of conservative principles. He pointed to the gains Republicans made in the House, though they are still in the minority, and the failure of the Democrats to capture control of the Senate, at least so far. Romney found further evidence in the Democrats' inability to flip GOP-controlled statehouses.

Romney, however, is mistaken in his basic assertion. First of all, Biden won by more than 5 million popular votes, nearly 4 percent more than Trump's total. The president-elect obtained the highest number of popular votes in the nation's history. Biden's margin of victory, contrary to Romney's claim, is not a mandate for conservatism. Rather, at the very least, the election was a referendum on President Trump's leadership, which of course Trump used to promote conservative ideas concerning tax cuts for the wealthy and the relaxation of business and environmental regulations.

Expert breaks down the ultimate goal of Trump’s ‘classic Russian-style disinformation campaign’

Published

Jonathan Rauch, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, spoke with CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday to explain the ultimate goal of President Donald Trump's false accusations of a rigged and stolen election.

Rauch was asked by Stelter if the issue is Trump is simply trapped in the delusion that he actually beat President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

"Is delusion a fair word for these election lies?" Stelter wondered.

"No, actually, I don't think it is," Rauch replied. "It's hard to know what's going on in the mind of the president, but you don't really need to. What you need to know is that what he is running right now is a classic Russian-style disinformation campaign of a type known as the firehose of falsehood. That's when you utilize every channel, not just media, but also the bully pulpit, even litigation to push out as many different stories and conspiracy theories and lies and half-truths as you possibly can in order to flood the zone if with disinformation."
