Never Trump Losers Plotting ‘Counter-Convention’ to Whine About GOP During RNC

They want to copy the real Republican convention.

A group of hardcore ideological neoconservatives and disaffected Never Trumpers is planning a troll ‘counter-convention’ during the August Republican Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, hoping to somehow derail President Trump’s reelection prospects with the puerile, reactionary stunt.

Failed 2016 independent spoiler candidate Evan McMullin is headlining the stunt event. The event is being billed as a “Convention on Founding Principles,’ and it appears that it’s being conducted in a primarily virtual format, undermining any claim that it’s more than a livestream. The faux convention is being billed under the wing of a Never Trumper group called “Republicans for a New President,” which primarily exists to enrich fat cat political consultants who detest grassroots Republican voters with donations from billionaire anti-Trump oligarchs.

McMullin, who suffered an embarrassing defeat in his single-state Utah presidential campaign, is advertising the convention as a celebration of his vision of the Republican Party. The former CIA operative and staunch neoconservative is claiming the event will help to return the GOP to its “pre-Trump” principles, invoking the failed presidential campaign Mitt Romney and disastrous presidency of George W. Bush.

It’s quite pathetic that a group claiming to be invoking the nation’s founding principles is organizing their minuscule event merely on the basis of imitating the real Republican convention. One would think they’d be able to promote their ideas on their own merits without lazy copying of a real national party convention, which will include real in-person events and political content, as opposed to an irrelevant virtual stream of McMullin, Rick Wilson, and Tom Nichols talking about why they don’t like Trump.

The circus organizers also claim they’re going to somehow campaign against incumbent congressional Republicans, raising questions as to how they plan to reach local Republican voters with their irrelevant Never Trump commercial.

A Trump campaign spokeswoman, Erin Perrine, merely dismissed the event’s fringe organizers as “irrelevant losers” when asked to comment by the Washington Examiner.

IT’S REAL: Four New Jersey Democrats Charged With Election Fraud in Mail-In Ballot Scheme

They’re all Democrats.

Published

Four men, two of whom are Democratic city council members, have been charged with running a voter fraud operation in the town of Paterson, New Jersey.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges of mail-in voting fraud, election fraud, and illegal possession of mail-in ballots against Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique, and Abu Rayzen.

Jackson is an active city councilman, while Mendez is a councilman-elect. Khalique is the brother of another Paterson city councilman, and Rayzen is a campaign operative for Khalique’s brother, Shahin Khalique.

The charges allege that Jackson took it upon himself to pick up completed mail-in ballots from voters in the city and delivered them to the Passaic County Board of Elections. Jackson failed to disclose to the board of elections that he delivered ballots for that he’s a city council member, and in one case, a ballot that he picked up that was unsealed was delivered to the election authorities sealed and completed.

Mendez is also accused of the same form of dishonest ballot harvesting, declining to reveal that he was a candidate for office when dropping off mail-in ballots. He’s also charged with falsifying and tampering with records.

Although they’re rarely enforced, New Jersey laws criminalizing election fraud have strict penalties, and it’s possible that the men could face prison sentences of up to ten years if they’re convicted of the second-degree felonies of which they’re charged.

A state investigation into the recent Paterson city election spurred the criminal charges, with AG Grewal revealing that 20% of the ballots filed in the election were fraudulent.
