Republican leader who condemned Steve King’s racism sends anti-immigrant newsletter

Published

on

A Republican congresswoman who was the first in her caucus to condemn Rep. Steve King (R-IA) for his virulent racism is encouraging fellow GOP members to play up violent crimes committed by immigrants in a recent newsletter.

The Intercept reported that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the chair of the House Republican Conference, sent a newsletter Friday full of anti-immigrant talking points — just under a month after she called King’s apparent endorsement of white supremacy “abhorrent and racist.”

In the newsletter obtained by The Intercept, Cheney gave her caucus “a messaging update that compiled immigrant crimes by date and congressional district” meant to give members leverage against Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for opposing Donald Trump’s border wall.

“Speaker Pelosi made one thing clear during the government shutdown: she doesn’t care about the tragic consequences of illegal immigration on American families,” the House Republican Caucus chair wrote.

Under the subheading “The Democrats’ far-left immigration agenda has tragic real-world consequences,” the newsletter details crimes with immigrant perpetrators spanning back two decades.

The Intercept noted that the document in the House GOP newsletter “mirrors” Trump tweets “linking crimes committed by immigrants to the need to expand the wall along the U.S. southern border with Mexico.”

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
