Some Never-Trumpers are having second thoughts about Biden — this conservative just set them straight

Writing for The Bulwark this Tuesday, Robert Tracinski contends that there is a growing number of “Never-Trumpers” who are actually reversing their anti-Trump stance, saying that now they have no choice but to vote for him due to the increasing threat from the left. But according to Tracinski, the notion that Joe Biden embodies that kind of threat is ridiculous.

“This is, I have to admit, the best argument out there for voting for Trump, so we should expect to hear a lot more of it as November approaches,” Tracinski writes. “Yet precisely because it is the best argument, I find it unconvincing. Why? Because the more they convince me that the far left is a horribly dangerous threat that is taking over the Democratic Party and threatens to destroy the republic—and I really don’t need any convincing on this—the more they remind me that if I ever want to stand up to what’s wrong in the Republican Party, I had better do it now, when the alternative is the relatively inoffensive Joe Biden.”

These wavering Never-Trumpers forget that Trump is the biggest threat to their idea of conservatism and the Republican Party. While Tracinski doesn’t like Biden, he knows that a Trump win will “create an even more hostile ideological environment for advocates of liberty.”

“If it is necessary for advocates of liberty to stand up to this illiberal strain of conservatism that has been unleashed by Trumpism, that confrontation will only get harder—much, much harder—if we wait another four years,” he writes.

Published

Jaime Harrison, the Democrat challenging Sen. Lindsey Graham, on Monday said that his upstart campaign is panicking the incumbent.

Harrison was interviewed on MSNBC by "The Last Word" anchor Lawrence O'Donnell, who noted the most recent polling shows a tied race.

"Have you experienced any extra fund-raising surge over the weekend?" O'Donnell asked.

"Well, Lawrence, we have gotten tremendous support and we really appreciate it," Harrison replied.

"Do you believe you have the resources and the campaign team and the ground troops you need in South Carolina to actually pull this off?" O'Donnell asked later in the interview.

Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform

Published

on

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.

“I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose," Feinstein argued.

"It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself," Feinstein falsely claimed.

Feinstein is in line to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee if Democrats regain the Senate, despite never attending law school or having ever tried a case.
