Right-wing billionaire Robert Mercer is staying out of President Trump’s re-election campaign after being a very influential donor during his first campaign.
In 2016, the Wall Street hedge-fund owner donated $15.5 million along with his wife, Diana, to the campaign. They gave an additional $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee. They also brought controversial data firm Cambridge Analytica into the mix.
Mercer was also influential in getting Citizens United President David Bossie installed as Trump’s deputy campaign manager. He also pushed for pollster Kellyanne Conway to be made Trump’s campaign manager, and Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon to be made his campaign CEO. These changes are ultimately what led to Trump’s campaign gaining tremendous momentum in the final months of 2016 and ultimately Trump becoming president.
“The Mercers laid the groundwork for the Trump revolution,” Bannon said in 2017, according to The New Yorker.
Officials close to Mercer have confirmed that he is “100 percent out” after becoming disillusioned with the Trump presidency. He has given $400,000 to the Great America PAC and $355,200 to Trump Victory, but Mercer is not expected to followup on these donations.
It was reported earlier this month that tech guru Peter Thiel, who had been Trump’s most significant supporter in Silicon Valley, was ditching Trump’s re-election campaign as well. Thiel had given $1.25 million that year to Trump’s 2016 campaign and affiliated causes, but has reportedly soured on Trump in lieu of his response to the Chinavirus pandemic.
Trump has recently shaken up his campaign staff as his prospects for victory in November wane, relieving campaign manager Brad Parscale of his role.
Big League Politics has reported on how Parscale’s woeful strategic decisions have put a damper on the Trump campaign:
President Donald Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Monday when he said that immigration wouldn’t be one of the top issues that Trump focuses on while trying to obtain re-election this November.
When Dobbs asked Parscale what the top three issues would be for the President on the campaign trail, Parscale claimed jobs, national security and healthcare would be what Trump would focus on. Dobbs, who has been a proponent for border security his entire career, was surprised that immigration was not included.
“You didn’t mention border security. You didn’t mention immigration,” Dobbs said.
“Well, I think on immigration he’s already in the winning column. I think that those people we already have voters. I think these other issues we have to continue to get the other voters to come across and make this a landslide victory,” Parscale responded…
This follows news of Trump capitulating on mass immigration. Reversing his previous stance, Trump is now ready to open the flood gates for the third-world so that corporations can hire cheap labor.
Just last week, Trump echoed Chamber of Commerce talking points and implied that American college graduates were not intelligent or qualified enough to be employed at corporate jobs.
“We do need workers in our country… We need people. I got Foxconn to go into Wisconsin. They have to get people. They have spent a fortune. They built the most incredible plant I have ever seen,” Trump said to Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“But why shouldn’t we have American graduates of colleges and universities taking those jobs?” Ingraham asked in response.
“We do, but we don’t have enough of them. We don’t have enough of them, and we have to be competitive with the rest of the world too. The companies want to hire these people, and they can’t,” Trump said.
“They want to hire people they can hire for the cheapest amount because that’s what they want,” Ingraham contended.
“I’m not talking about cheap. I’m talking about brain power,” Trump said to a stunned Ingraham. “They want to hire smart people, and those people are thrown out of the country. We can’t do that.”
President Trump is making serious changes, but it may be too little too late. He could conceivably be a one-term president with the country falling back into the hands of the globalists, marxists, and pizza partiers.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
