Nazis running on Holocaust denial platforms won 25 percent of voters in Illinois and California

Published

While Democrats did well in Tuesday’s midterms, taking control of the House of Representatives and winning 55 percent of the popular vote for U.S. Senate.

There were still a number of troubling results—winners include three men who have recently been indicted, the author of Bigfoot erotica, and a deceased pimp.

And that’s not even mentioning Iowa’s Steve King.

And even among the losers, fringe candidates garnered a surprising share of the vote—even in blue states.

In California, John Fitzgerald ran for Congress to expose the Holocaust as “a fabricated lie.”

Fitzgerald was denounced by his own state’s Republican Party and recorded interviews with neo-Nazis. He says that the 9/11 attacks were part of a Jewish plot.

He got 43,000 votes, 29 percent of the total.

In Illinois, Arthur Jones, the former leader of the American Nazi Party, was on the ballot as a Republican.

Jones got 25 percent of the vote, meaning the former leader of a Nazi group is supported by at least 44,000 people in Illinois.

The Illinois GOP disavowed his campaign but had done nothing to stop him.

CNN's Matt Hoye noted the Turkish foreign minister's comments came around the same time that Trump was praising the deal.

EU and Britain just struck a Brexit deal — here’s what’s in it

Published

on

"Fair and reasonable." That's how both Britain's Boris Johnson and the EU describe the new draft Brexit deal reached Thursday after days of intense haggling.

Here's what's in the accord -- and what each side gave up to get there.

- Northern Ireland -

Arrangements for the UK province of Northern Ireland were the trickiest part of the new deal, and the core of what has changed since last year's withdrawal agreement, which was rejected by British MPs.

The new protocol stipulates that Northern Ireland remains in Britain's customs territory, but in practice there would be a sort of customs border between the province and the mainland.

Writing for the conservative Bulwark, columnist and author Robert Tracinski said Donald Trump's Syria debacle is likely the turning point for even the most hardened of his most avid defenders in the White House. Many of them, he said, will likely start leaving.

As Tracinski began, "Donald Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds is a moment that might be more important than it seems—one that is likely to have a far-reaching impact that goes well beyond what happens in Syria."
