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

They want to copy the real Republican convention.

Published

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.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment

Cuomo has refused to resign.

A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.

Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”

Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.

I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.

Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.

Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
