Never Trump Erick Erickson Endorses Pro-Abortion Candidate For Georgia Senate Appointment

Erickson once again shows his lack of backbone as a conservative.

Erick Erickson, who was among the most prominent Never Trumpers in 2016, has come out with an endorsement of Kelly Loeffler, who will likely be appointed to the U.S. Senate.

Loeffler is widely believed to be the preferred pick of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to replace Sen. Johnny Isakson, who is departing at the end of the year due to health issues. Kemp is reportedly going to pick Loeffler over Rep. Doug Collins, who President Donald Trump has suggested for the position.

Erickson wrote in an op/ed for the The Resurgent defending Gov. Kemp’s pick based on identity politics pandering.

“Governor Kemp has already appointed a number of black, Hispanic, and female people to various executive and judicial positions, breaking several appointment records by his predecessors,” he wrote.

“In Loeffler’s case, Kemp wants to attract suburban women back to the GOP. Remember, Kemp will be on the ballot in 2022 with Loeffler. In the meantime, here is what you can and should expect,” he added.

Erickson chided the conservative movement for not getting behind Loeffler, who he claims is an “outsider” despite the fact that she donated a large sum of money to a Super PAC for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign in 2012.

“Conservatives love to say they want outsiders. Kemp is giving them what they want. That parts of the conservative movement are out to destroy Loeffler without knowing anything about her says a lot about the movement,” Erickson wrote.

“It has been burned repeatedly by those it rallied around. But also, the movement is sometimes not willing to take leaps of faith with trusted allies when the movement should,” he added.

“Loeffler has to stop a challenge from the right. She’s smart enough to know it. So is Kemp and his team. That strongly suggests she will not just be an ally to the movement, but will make Georgia proud too,” Erickson concluded.

In his op/ed, Erickson conveniently glossed over Loeffler’s long history as a donor for Democratic Party politicians in Georgia and across the country. He also made excuses for the fact that Loeffler sits on the board of Grady Hospital, the state’s leading abortion provider.

Big League Politics reported last week on how Loeffler’s WNBA franchise, the Atlanta Dream, joined a profit-sharing program with Planned Parenthood and other far-left special interest groups, something else Erickson failed to mention:

The WNBA is steeped in social justice rhetoric, typically blaming sexism for the lack of interest in their dismal product, and Loeffler’s franchise has participated in a revenue-sharing scheme that funneled money into the coffers of Planned Parenthood.

Through the “Take A Seat, Take A Stand” program that operated in 2018, the WNBA officially joined the resistance against President Donald Trump. It sent $5 from every ticket sold during a WNBA game throughout the 2018 season to a wide variety of extreme leftist special interest groups such as Planned Parenthood, MENTOR, GLSEN, It’s on Us, Bright Pink, and The United State of Women.

“For 22 years, the WNBA and its players – women playing at the highest level of their sport – have stood up as role models for millions of women and girls,” said WNBA President Lisa Borders.

“With ‘Take a Seat, Take a Stand,’ we are proud to come together as a league to stand with our partner organizations, our fans and the many inspiring women raising their voices for change in the current women’s movement,” Borders added…

Loeffler’s franchise, the Atlanta Dream, did in fact take part in this program, and they promoted the idea on their official team website.

America First candidate for Congress in Georgia, Marjorie Taylor-Greene, shared what she’s hearing from the grassroots on the campaign trail:

Loeffler is the official candidate of Conservative Inc. If she is appointed to the Senate despite her history of supporting abortion and donating to Democrats, it will be another slap in the face to the conservative movement.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
