Top Democrats in Washington hate President Donald Trump and are determined to stop him. That is, until their corporate lobbying clients — like the major airlines — need to pressure Trump to get rid of “unfair competition” in their industry. Then, all of a sudden, they become populist nationalists.
Big League Politics has reported on the Democratic Party plot to emulate Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan for the 2020 campaign, similar to how Bill Clinton directly ripped off Trump’s protectionist talking points late in the campaign in the Midwest. Now, a D.C. insider passes along a new plot, anchored by top Obama crony Hilary Rosen, to use Trump language to push the Trump White House in the direction the airlines want it to go.
The insider writes to Big League:
“The rhetoric of America First struck a chord with the Democrat base — so much so that some in the DC Swamp are attempting to hijack the rhetoric and use it for their progressive agenda. Meet Hilary Rosen, the self-described “strong, progressive Democrat” who is the traffic cop at the intersection between corporate cronyism and progressive politics.
As the head of SKDKnickerbocker, the progressive public affairs and marketing firm, Rosen has used her progressive credentials for years to curry favor with liberal politicians like Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Their vast history of support of anti-business candidates and causes hasn’t stopped the big three airlines – United, Delta and American – from hiring Rosen to push the White House to dump current Open Skies agreements that would allow more competition and job creation in the industry.
Rosen and the #TheResistance are using the rhetoric of “America First” to push the White House to do favors for their corporate clients. Politico Influence reports the “Partnerships for Open and Fair Skies” has spent more than an astounding $6.1 million lobbying to demand the White House renege on existing agreements. Competition might be good for consumers, but it isn’t good for airlines that like to manhandle customers to throw them off planes.
Rosen, who recently went to Twitter to bash fellow progressive and Democratic super-lawyer Jamie Gorelick for representing Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner…
Hey Jamie Gorelick, you've just poured that "Complicit" perfume on yourself. #Ivanka.

#TheResistance believes you cannot represent the Trump Family as an attorney, while at the same time they’re begging the Trump White House to push legislative changes that will benefit their clients. Doesn’t make a lot of sense from a logical standpoint.
Draining the Swamp should include draining any hypocritical bad actors from having access to the White House.”
Maybe President Trump is more powerful now in Washington than the resistance is letting on!
Hilary Rosen did not return a request for comment for this report.
Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex
Well this isn’t a good look.
John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.
Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.
Maybe I should start talking about one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project offering jobs to young men in exchange for sex… his wife is probably interested https://t.co/vAtUS9aPPl

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.
Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”
@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.
The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”
Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”
“What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.
And there could be much more where that came from…
For those asking why speaking up about this now: There are others, including some who reached out to me in recent days. Many many many many others, some afraid to say anything.

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
