Congressman Accused of Making Bomb Threat Confirms He Called Anti-Amnesty Group’s Office

Published

on

Republican Virginia Rep. Scott Taylor confirms that he called the offices of the anti-amnesty group NumbersUSA, which has been critical of Taylor’s support for passing a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Taylor is seen by insiders as Speaker Paul Ryan’s informal whip for passing an amnesty bill before the end of the year.

Multiple sources close to NumbersUSA confirmed to Big League Politics that Taylor made multiple angry phone calls to the group’s office, and in the latter conversation asked for the group’s address and threatened to “blow up” the office.

Taylor confirms that he called NumbersUSA, but denies that he ever made a bomb threat. He defends himself by saying, “Why would they call a political blog instead of the police?”

It is entirely possible that NumbersUSA did not actually believe a sitting congressman would literally blow up their office, and thus no call to the police would have been required. However, the story underscores Ryan’s allies’ anger toward anti-amnesty crusaders.

Taylor and his office have not responded to Big League Politics’ requests for comment.

Big League Politics reported:

Republican Rep. Scott Taylor phoned the offices of the anti-illegal immigration nonprofit group NumbersUSA and threatened to “blow up” the group’s offices for criticizing his position on amnesty.

Sources familiar with House Speaker Paul Ryan’s whip operation tell Big League Politics that Taylor, the first-term congressman from Virginia’s Second District, is informally responsible for whipping votes to preserve President Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. NumbersUSA criticized Taylor and encouraged its followers to call his office. The nonprofit group sent around a letter that Taylor signed alongside 33 other Republicans urging Speaker Ryan for “passing of a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients before the end of the year.”

Then things got nasty.

A source close to NumbersUSA told Big League Politics that Rep. Scott Taylor called NumbersUSA’s office last Friday “screaming profanities at them” after the group disseminated the letter. The source claimed that NumbersUSA did “nothing else” to agitate Taylor, merely sent around the letter.

On Wednesday, Rep. Taylor called again “asking for their physical address and threatened to blow up their offices,” according to the source. Multiple sources close to NumbersUSA confirmed the statement on the phone call.

The feud between Taylor and NumbersUSA is evident based on Taylor’s Facebook page, where he posted about the group last Wednesday, the day of the first alleged phone call to the group’s offices.

“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears. Never have I written or stated support for Obama’s amnesty. This group told me they believe kids/young adults in the program should be deported back to countries they do not know and were not raised in. They were told my position,” Taylor wrote on his Facebook page, showing an image of a NumbersUSA ad slamming Taylor.

“Thirty-four Republicans in the House of Representatives signed a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan calling for passage of a permanent DACA amnesty before the end of the year. Reps. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) and Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) led the effort,” according to NumbersUSA’s website.

John Podesta “Refused to Concede” In Democratic Election Wargame While Roleplaying as Joe Biden

Prepping for the real thing?

Published

on

A Democratic election simulation program preparing party elites for possible outcomes of the November presidential election has featured a scenario in which Joe Biden, who was roleplayed by Democratic operative John Podesta, will refuse to concede defeat in the election, according to reporting about the event from the New York Times.

The so-called Transition Integrity Project was created with the idea of preparing Democratic Party elites for four different outcomes of the election. One result of the election simulation wargame involved an electoral college simulation in which President Donald Trump secures a strong electoral vote victory while losing the popular vote to Biden, who was played by the former Clinton operative Podesta.

Podesta refused to concede the presidential election in that scenario, citing what he maintained was voter suppression in Wisconsin and Michigan. Podesta, within the confines of the scenario, convinced the governors of the states to send the votes of pro-Biden electors to the House in an attempt to inaugurate Biden as President, despite losing the states.

In the scenario, the House of Representatives recognized Joe Biden as the legitimate President of the United States, while the executive branch of the federal government and the Senate recognized President Trump as the rightful President.

Perhaps most shockingly, in the roleplay scenario Podesta was impersonating Biden in, the Democrat states of California, Washington, and Oregon openly threatened to secede from the United States in the event that President Trump was sworn in for a second term in office, upping the stakes of the constitutional crisis to the point of a potential Second American Civil War with a beginning similar to the first one.

The roleplay of the event ended when organizers determined the American people would look to the military to resolve the situation.

That the Democratic Party elites  would even maintain such a fundamental rejection of an American election as legitimate shows the danger of the extremist neoliberal party.
