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.

Where is Connelly’s signature? It cannot be found.

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.

Week After U.S. Senate Nomination, Virginia Delegation Silent on Corey Stewart

Published

on

A full week after Corey Stewart won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Virginia, earning the right to take on  incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), elected officials at the highest level of the Virginia GOP have failed to announce their support for the candidate.

In fact, they have actively avoided the question, and predictably, Democrats have seized on the opportunity to make them look foolish.

GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) dodged American Bridge’s questions a few days ago:

Big League Politics reached out to Comstock personally, and to her office. Neither returned a request for comment.

Alleged Republican Rep. Scott Taylor (VA-02) would not talk either:

“Reach out to my office,” Taylor said.

Big League Politics did just that. Timothys Foster, Talyor’s spokesman, did not return our email request for comment.

Republican Rep. Dave Brat failed to express support for Stewart too, though he came close.

“Judeo-Christian values, that’s what I’m running on,” said Brat. “I’ll support anyone who shares those values.”

Brat did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment either.

Stewart was embroiled in controversy during his primary run after the neo-liberal website Daily Wire ran a dishonest hit piece on him, claiming that he was an anti-Semite. There is no proof to support the allegation, other than Stewart’s support for Paul Nehlan, who made anti-semitic remarks. At the time of the questionable comments, Nehlan had the support of most of the GOP. He has since wholly denounced by the Stewart and the rest of the party.

For their part, the Republican Party of Virginia expressed support for Stewart via Twitter. When Stewart appeared on CNN for an interview with host Chris Cuomo, the liberal anchor tried to peg Stewart as a racist. Stewart replied by pointing out that Cuomo’s family has long been tied to anti-Semitism.

Former RPV executive Shaun Kenney denounced the party’s support.

“It’s not just eccentric, it’s offensive,” he said. “In a previous era, had a member of RPV staff issued comments like that, I would have fired them on the spot.”

The morally superior virtue-signaling will get the Virginia GOP nowhere.  Making false allegations of racism is a decades-old strategy used by Democrats against Republicans. They make the same claims against nearly every GOP candidate running for an important office.

But the establishment GOP, no matter how many times the Democrats have played the race card, still have not figured out the left’s tricks.

It is time to stand with Corey Stewart. Anything less is de facto support for Hillary Clinton sycophant Kaine, a hard-leftist who has failed Virginians in his tenure as a Senator.

Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee

Published

on

A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.

According to the letter that was obtained by CNN,  Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”

Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”

The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.

Big League Politics reported:

Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.

This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:

“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!

Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

BLP Passage Ends.

Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.

“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”

Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

Oversized: Rosie O’Donnell Makes Potentially Illegal Campaign Donations

Published

on

According to a New York Post analysis of campaign filings, Rosie O’Donnell made illegally oversized donations to five federal Democrat candidates.

“Nothing nefarious,” the washed up comedian and Donald Trump critic said. “I was not choosing to over donate.”

But O’Donnell regularly broke the Federal Election Commission’s rules that limit donations to $2,700 per candidate per election campaign. The limit is applies separately to primaries, run-offs, and general elections, with each considered a new race.

“If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money,” she said. “I don’t look to see who I can donate most to … I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit.”

But intent is not an element of the crime, and O’Donnell’s blind faith that politicians would simply return her money if she over-donated is either pathetically naive or a lie to cover for herself.

O’Donnell donated $4,700 to Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in his race against Judge Roy Moore. Jones won the race by

She also gave $3,700 to Rep. Conor Lamb, (D-PA), $2,950 to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), $4,200 to Lauren Underwood, a current Illinois congressional candidate, and $3,450 to Omar Vaid, an outsider congressional candidate from Staten Island, NY.

“My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing Trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed,” she said.

Don’t worry plebeians, O’Donnell quells her anxiety by throwing bundles of cash at Democrats and breaking the law. Perhaps someone at the FEC can alert her that there’s medicine for that. And people still wonder why the political left is so out of touch with the average American.

According to campaign finance lawyer Jan Witold Baran, donors are rarely fined for excess contributions and then only if they are hiding the donations from the recipients. She said that campaigns generally are not penalized for isolated contributions over a limit.

Candidates who receive excess donations are allowed simply to roll the excess funds over to their next campaign.

In effect, the law is useless as it is seldom enforced. Leave it to the D.C. swamp.

“I also maxed out to Cynthia Nixon,” O’Donnell told the Post. “And I loathe Jeannine Pirro.”
