Monday Open Thread

  1. We apologize for the intermittent errors some users received this weekend while we were working on the site. We're hopeful that the site is now much more stable and the recent downtime problems are in the past.

    Please continue to let us know about issues you experience.

  2. Here's an excellent opinion piece from the NY Times from an old time Reagan Republican speaking about the decline of the GOP into a nihilist cult under Trump.  It is worth sharing with anyone struggling with whether to vote, or for whom if not Biden. 

    Mr. Trump will be the Republican nominee for the third time. His imprint on the Republican Party is now comparable with — and in some ways exceeds — Ronald Reagan’s. And that imprint is likely to last for at least a generation. It is a staggering achievement.

    It also presents a profound threat to the country. Whatever one thought of the Republican Party pre-Trump, it was not fundamentally illiberal or nihilistic; its leaders were not sociopathic, merciless con men, wantonly cruel and lawless. No area of Mr. Trump’s life appears to have been untouched by moral corruption.

    Since 2015, I have repeatedly warned Republicans about Mr. Trump, describing him as the kind of demagogue the founders feared, malignant and malicious, a man with a disordered personality.

    Voting for anyone other than Biden is a mistake that I hope the country won't have to pay the ultimate price.

    1. Thanks for the link.  

      The language is colorful, the perspective interesting … but the basic facts and the alarm about the trend are nothing new.  Wehner has been preaching the same message to unlistening ears since 2015.

      Until there is an effort to develop an institutional presence for Constitutional conservatives that is willing to contend with Trump and opportunistic followers within what is a continuation of the institution still known as "Republicans," politicians such as Cheney, Haley, Hurd, Kinzinger, and Sasse will be voices in the wilderness, if they speak at all.

    2. Somewhere, Nancy Reagan is twitching…and there’s an applicable joke related to Don, Jr.

      Donald Trump, praising Hernandez in 2019: “He’s working with the United States very closely. We’re stopping drugs at a level that’s never happened.”

  3. #DimentiaDon is on a roll… #SoMuchWinning  Now that his daughter-in-law (married to the son that is banned from running charities in NY after he was caught stealing from kids with cancer) has been installed at the RNC, let the party resume (and by party, I mean the sheeple start paying your bills again) 


    The fact that Trump libeled @ejeancarroll on @CNBC @SquawkCNBC is highly significant for a procedural reason in addition to a substantive one.

    Were E. Jean to sue Trump just for the speech he gave in northwest Georgia the other day, she probably would have had to sue in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

    But now that he libeled her on Squawk Box, which is anchored in Manhattan, she likely may now sue in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    If she does that, the case would be assigned to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan as a case related to the earlier two cases that produced $88.3 million in damages awards.

  4. Everything Fat Donnie touches eventually dies. It's now the Trump National Committee. 

    Bloodbath at RNC: Trump team slashes staff at committee

    Trump’s campaign took over operational control of the RNC on Monday. On Friday, former North Carolina GOP Chair Michael Whatley was elected the RNC’s new chair, and Trump daughter-in-law Lara Trump was elected as co-chair. Both had Trump’s endorsement. Additionally, Trump senior campaign adviser Chris LaCivita was named as the RNC’s new chief of staff.
