Cory Gardner, Mitch McConnell, NRSC, Chamber Donors May Squander Another $50 Million Against Republicans in 2020

Published

on

The NRSC squandered almost $50 million under Corey Gardner’s leadership, neglected to support embattled Repubuplican Judge Roy Moore in Alabama’s Special Republican Primary, and shunned vulnerable GOP candidates in the Arizona and Nevada 2018 General Elections, and may be poised to do so again, according to reports.
Voters in Republican battleground states are increasingly encountering a new reality: their own party is fighting against its own candidates, and even bragging about sabotaging Republican ballot contenders in favor of Democrats.
The unprecedented and politically uncharacteristic bravado are manifest in the comments of Cory Gardner — recent head of the GOP’s Senate campaign fundraising arm — only a day after Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore was falsely accused of “sexual misconduct” by confirmed liar and flusey Leigh Corfman.
“The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling. If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election,” NRSC Chairman Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said in a statement.
Amazingly, Gardner then directed the NRSC to sever its fundraising agreement with Moore only one day after the unsupported, totally disproven and politically-motivated allegations were published in the Washington Post.

But the NRSC is not the only establishment Republican organization betraying Republican voters and their choice at the ballot box.

During the Alabama Senate Primary in 2017, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and disgraced GOP strategist Karl Rove, also undermined Moore — who ultimately won the primary anyway. Rove was twice-wrong in his election calls , 2012 and 2016.

The NRSC ran attack ads and a McConnell-backed super-PAC spent millions portraying Moore as “unfit for the Senate.” McConnell’s super PAC spent $8 million to boost Republican incumbent Sen. Luther Strange. McConnell also directed the NRSC to threaten consultants they’ll be cut off from future work if they Moore supporters, and the Senator’s top political lieutenants advised Strange’s campaign, too — a move reported to be “highly unusual.”

The NRSC is now on record de facto endorsing Alabama Democrat Doug Jones, who is covering up actual, documented criminal fraud against the voters of the state of Alabama perpetrated by Democratic Party-funded allies under the monicker, “Project Birmingham.” SEE OUR PREVIOUS BOMBSHELL STORY ON PROJECT BIRMINGHAM.

“ABRM, anyone but Roy Moore,” said Kevin McLaughlin, the NRSC’s executive director. “The only thing Doug Jones and I agree on is that his only prayer for electoral success in 2020 is a rematch with Roy Moore,” McLaughlin said, announcing his intent to throw GOP candidates in the fire for a Democratic incumbent.

Josh Holmes, McConnell’s former chief of staff, blasted Moore and former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, told The New York Times,

This is what happens when you let reckless, incompetent idiots like Steve Bannon go out and recruit candidates who have absolutely no business running for the U.S. Senate.

Nevada and Arizona are also battleground states where Republican ballot choices are under attack — by Republican leadership.

Kelli Ward (Arizona), Chris McDaniel (Missouri) and Danny Tarkanian (Nevada) are the jewels in Steve Bannon’s counter-insurgency crown, with the former Trump White House adviser vowing to wage political war against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

McConnell’s allies are threatening that anyone who runs on the GOP ticket and aligns with Bannon will be shut down.

“Steve Bannon is toxic, and we saw that in Alabama,” said Chris Pack, spokesman for Senate Leadership Fund, “Candidates that are drawn into Bannon’s universe will now have to answer for Bannon’s baggage, like supporting an accused child molester.”

Tarkanian wasn’t phased, saying, “Mitch McConnell’s argument is we need to support a guy like Dean Heller, who will do what’s politically expedient for himself over what’s best for our country because he has a better chance of being elected than I do.”

“I think that is why people are sick and tired of politicians.” he continued.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
