‘Traitors among us’: Rick Wilson torches Trump apologists for siding with Putin against America

Published

on

President Donald Trump often accuses others of his own bad behavior, but former Republican strategist Rick Wilson argued that his devaluation of the “traitor” slur is significant and dangerous.

Trump often accuses his critics and political rivals of treason, but Wilson argued in a new Rolling Stone column that the president and his apologists have betrayed the U.S. to defend an un-American administration.

“As the impeachment hearings have worn on and as evidence of the complete moral collapse of the Republican Party has become more and more evident, it has become quite obvious there really are traitors among us,” Wilson wrote. “There are elected officials who have made the decision to protect a corrupt president by embracing conspiracy theories, refusing to acknowledge sworn testimony of career foreign-service officials, and piling on to Trump’s attack of democratic institutions.”

Wilson argued that Trump apologists openly display their treason on cable TV, as they laugh and giggle about their betrayal of American values in service of a corrupt president.

“The traitors — be they United States senators like John Kennedy and Lindsey Graham or columnists from the Federalist, Breitbart, and a slurry of other formally conservative media outlets — repeat the Kremlin-approved propaganda messages and tropes of that warfare, word for word,” he wrote.

GOP traitors defend Trump’s “f*ck you, pay me” ethos and White House stonewalling of the impeachment inquiry, Wilson argued, and they openly boast of their allegiance to Russia’s president Vladimir Putin.

“You can spot the traitors simply by watching their television shows, as they look you in the eye and tell you to your face they side with Russia,” Wilson wrote. “Tucker Carlson wasn’t winking and nodding to the camera; it was where he’s landed politically — a pro-Putin schill on a network that looks away from their pet president’s grotesque subservience to the Russian leader who helped elect him.”

“If you can’t spot the treason yet, you will soon enough. That’s the thing about spies, traitors, and those who betray their country — they rarely stay hidden forever,” he added.

Amy Klobuchar wins endorsement in first in the nation primary from the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper

Published

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."

Economists warn Trump policies will result in lost jobs and lower wages for American workers

Published

The 20-year-old San Diego bakery Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe went out of business this month after an audit by US authorities found immigrants working there illegally.

In April, a small Nebraska town lost a potato processing plant, and the local revenue it generated, in the wake of an immigration raid on its facilities. A restaurant in New York appears to have suffered similar fate in August.

Farmers say they are planting less, turning to automation, eliminating some crops, leaving them to rot in the field or contemplating selling out of the business altogether -- all because they cannot find enough immigrant labor.
