Illinois GOP official admits nomination of a neo-Nazi was an ‘absolute political disaster’

Published

on

A Republican state legislator in Illinois admitted his party was mistaken in missing multiple opportunities to counter the nomination of Arthur Jones, a neo-Nazi congressional candidate.

“I think it’s really harmful to the party,” Rep. David McSweeney (R), a conservative in Illinois’ state legislature told Politico. “The guy’s a complete nutcase. He’s a Nazi. This is an absolute political disaster.”

Politico noted in its report on the candidate who once led the American Nazi Party that Illinois Republicans “botched four different opportunities” to stop Jones from becoming their nominee.

“McSweeney’s comments come just days after the filing deadline passed for qualifying a third-party candidate for the general election — which could have provided a safe harbor for Illinois Republican votes,” the report continued. “Prior to that, the party had also failed to recruit a candidate to challenge Jones in the primary election, failed to knock him off the primary ballot and wasn’t able to field a write-in candidate against him in the primary.”

When he was informed that the party wouldn’t be running a third-party candidate against him, Jones reportedly laughed.

“That’s great! That’s fantastic!” the nominee who called the Holocaust an “international extortion racket” on his now-defunct campaign website told Politico.

“I snookered them,” Jones continued. “I played by the rules, what can I say?”

Part of the reason the GOP’s continual failure to circumvent Jones’ nomination is that he’s running in a “district heavily favored for Democrats,” Illinois Republican Party spokesman Aaron DeGroot told Politico.

Rudy Giuliani’s devotion has escorted Trump straight to impeachment

Published

"Step by step, [Rudy Giuliani] has escorted President Trump to the brink of impeachment," The New York Times said in a piece following the president's top lawyer and his impact on the scandals facing the 45th president.

Two associates of Giuliani's have already been indicted, Giuliani is under criminal investigation from federal prosecutors, and he was never graced with a top position in the Trump government.

"The separate troubles he has gotten his client and himself into are products of the uniquely powerful position he has fashioned, a hybrid of unpaid personal counsel to the president and for-profit peddler of access and advice," The Times said Sunday.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
