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.

President Donald Trump seems to be waffling on whether or not he wants a war in Iran. As it stands, he seems to be against it, pulling back on a military strike that would have killed 150 people and most certainly begun another Middle Eastern war.

In a report from the Washington Post, leaders from policy to politics are telling the president to get it together. The "freewheeling" style of politics may have been a quirky style, but now it's putting the United States in a difficult position.

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.
