President Donald Trump supporters in Ohio are sending a message to their Republican party: anti-Trump establishment Swamp creatures like Bill Kristol will no longer be tolerated.
Protests are expected outside a Kristol-headlined fundraiser Friday hosted by the Cuyahoga County Republicans at the Cleveland Marriott East. Kristol is the #NeverTrump activist who spearheaded the effort to launch a third-party campaign to hurt Donald Trump in the election and help Hillary Clinton win. Kristol, shamed after Trump’s victory, stepped down as editor-in-chief of his magazine The Weekly Standard.
Cleveland Tea Party co-founder Ralph King told Big League Politics that he will “reach out to some people.”
“I know that people are not happy that one of the NeverTrumpers of the campaign is going to be coming into Cleveland for the dinner. It’s $300 per plate ticket, which is typical of DC. It’s typical of the politics,” King said.
“Why did Billy Kristol come? To suck up to the swamp. He’s a name to draw 300 dollar plates in. He’s not reflective of Cuyahoga County politics. This is just how these political parties operate to try to draw in money,” King said. “No one politician is going to fix everything. Donald Trump is going to give us a leg up, but WE need to do it. Why are we always looking for politicians to solve the problem? Right here right now you have a We the People moment.”
“Especially after what Kasich did, we’re trying to stomp on all of that,” King said, referring to Ohio Republican governor John Kasich, who shut down his state party from campaigning for Trump, forcing pro-Trump activists to win Ohio on their own.
Republican Central Committee member Bonnie Dolezal told Big League Politics that she wants to know if the county party is making money off the Kristol tickets, which they presumably are.
“They don’t do anything unless it’s a fundraiser,” Dolezal said. “I’ve heard people in my county and elsewhere, and people are angry about this. The chairman should not have allowed this to happen, I don’t know who invited him, but they said anyone can come and ask him questions because we need to hear different opinions. Well it’s 300 dollars to go and have lunch with the man, so I don’t think your average grassroots person is going to show up to see Bill Kristol.”
“I think it’s just an outrage,” Dolezal said, vowing to support a protest effort but saying that she is working and cannot show up Friday to a protest.
“It’s what he did during the election to Trump during the election,” Dolezal said about why she opposes Kristol. “He’s not on Fox News anymore, so they took a dim view of his attitude.”
Cuyahoga County party executive committee member Brian Wollet told Big League Politics that he plans to reach out to some college students who can show up to protest.
“A fair amount of people on the central committee” are upset, Wollet said, but “people often don’t like to speak up.”
Wollet pointed to a protest, led by conservative college kids, that garnered big media attention when Chuck Schumer visited the area to do a fundraiser for Senator Sherrod Brown outside the House of Blues.
“He is without remorse,” Wollet said of Kristol, whose false predictions provided the intellectual justification for President Bush’s failed Iraq War. “It’s one thing to be dead wrong. It’s another thing to be dead wrong and then continue.”
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
