NeverTrump Delegate Thief Runs For Congress Tuesday In South Carolina

Published

on

Republican Chad Connelly is vying to win Tuesday’s primary in a special election for the South Carolina Fifth District congressional seat. But Connelly’s record as a delegate-stealing #NeverTrumper is coming back to haunt him.

Connelly, the former South Carolina party chairman, was literally on the RNC payroll when the campaign started. That’s not a joke. As the great Alex Swoyer reported:

Chad Connelly was paid $120,000 last year and $31,000 this year by the RNC to serve as the party’s director of faith management. He collected checks until he resigned in early March, the month after he announced his candidacy.

Analysts said the legality of the payments depends on the details of the arrangement — but said politically the revelation looks bad because it suggests the national party was picking favorites.

Chad Connelly is not just an RNC stooge. He is also a member of an insidious underground cult: The #NeverTrump Delegate Thieves.

Ted Cruz’s delegate thieves briefly threw the presidential race into chaos in the weeks leading up to the Republican convention in Cleveland. Cruz people tried to rig delegate slates at state party conventions in order to steal delegates away from Trump — even though Trump already won those delegates on paper in the actual state primaries and caucuses. Trump supporters battled through “Robert’s Rules of Order on steroids” in Cleveland to finally put down the rebels’ plot. Trump was nominated, Ken Cuccinelli threw his credentials to the ground in protest, Ted and Heidi Cruz were booed out of the arena with chants of “Goldman Sachs,” and the thieves were defeated.

In Saudi Arabia, thieves get their hands cut off. In Republican politics, Trump supporters take aim at their political fortunes.

“I can personally attest to these facts: Chad passed around and lobbied for a slate (that included many Cruz and “Never Trump” names) competing with the Trump Slate,” Trump campaign senior adviser Karen Giorno told Big League Politics.

“Chad did not attend the Unity Breakfast designed to bring non-Trump supporters onboard. And although everyone was asked to show their support by singing the Defeat Hillary Vote Trump banner, Chad did not. Well over three-fourths of those in attendance did,” Giorno added.

Big League Politics has obtained photographs of the pro-Cruz NeverTrump slate of delegates that Connelly promoted, and also the “Defeat Hillary” banner that Connelly did not sign.

The Chad Connelly campaign did not provide comment for this report.

So what happened to the NeverTrumpers after the convention?

Some of the rebels plunged on, waging a guerrilla campaign in the foothills to help Hillary Clinton win. These rebels included John Kasich, who shut down Trump’s ground game with his state party and forced pro-Trump activists to win Ohio on their own. Bill Kristol backed a harebrained scheme to run Evan McMullin as a third-party candidate in Utah to peel off Mormon votes from Trump and keep him below 270 electoral votes. Paul Ryan tried to knock Trump off the ticket during the “Access Hollywood” scandal and make Mike Pence the nominee. But on Election Night, all of the rebels felt humiliated and fearful for the future. Some, like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, vowed to make Trump’s life as president as difficult as possible.

Most of them either hide their faces now or give lip-service support to the president, hoping that nobody will remember what they did, or who they really are. But make no mistake: if left unwatched, the NeverTrumpers will nest, reproduce, and invade.

Connelly is running against a wide field of candidates in Tuesday’s primary.

The legendary Trump “Strike Team” that carried the great state of South Carolina for Trump in the primaries has endorsed Connelly’s challenger Tom Mullikin.

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
