Of all the grifters on which 2020 has blown cover, NeverTrumpers stand at the top.

What began as a self-righteous crusade to supposedly save the Republican Party from Donald Trump has morphed into an explicit enterprise exposing who they were all along: financial opportunists capitalizing on media-fomented Trump Derangement Syndrome for personal profit while masquerading as white knight Republicans.

More than any other culprit — the Bulwarks, The Dispatches, the legacy papers promoting ex-GOP columnists as “conservative” — the vile con artists at the Lincoln Project reveal the left-wing campaign purportedly about preserving old-school conservatism has nothing to do with conservatism. The fall confirmation battle following the death of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a prime illustration.

After decades of leftist judges legislating from their benches, the appointment of new Supreme Court justices adhering to a strict interpretation of the Constitution gave conservatives their best chance to cement substantive change for decades. President Trump eased initial skepticism from genuine conservatives by releasing a list of potential names to fill the vacant seat left by conservative Justice Antonin Scalia during the 2016 campaign. That skepticism faded further when the president kept his word, nominating two conservative jurors and then Amy Coney Barrett.

The opening Justice Ginsburg left gave conservatives a rare opportunity to tip the balance of the court ruled for a generation by leftist justices. Twenty-four hours after Ginsburg’s passing, however, the Lincoln Project released a statement slamming the idea that the president and the Senate discharge their constitutional duty in a unified government to fill the seat.

Although no one sensible would predict otherwise from the fraudulent group, its leaders stayed the course even after Barrett’s nomination was announced, although her conservative credentials are and were not in doubt. The selection raised hysteria on the left, amplified by Democrats in the Senate and regurgitated by their NeverTrump allies blasting the nomination as an assault on American institutions.

The Lincoln Project continued its campaign not only against the president in favor of the most radical Democratic presidential ticket in recent American memory but also deployed its vast resources to topple hopes of a Republican Senate serving as any check to a laundry list of far-left items to emerge from the Democrat-controlled House. The group spent more than $67 million to influence various races this cycle. They went after relatively Trump-friendly senators such as Joni Ernst in Iowa, Steve Daines in Montana, and L indsey Graham in South Carolina, but also after Susan Collins in Maine, who is no Trump cheerleader.

The incoming Biden administration, meanwhile, featuring the most leftist senator on its ticket, has already endorsed bans on fracking, the Green New Deal, higher taxes, open borders, sanctuary cities, and late-term abortion. All of this came before the November election. It meant nothing to the “conservative” Never Trumpers shamefully covering themselves in the name of Lincoln. Leftist dreams of a left-wing administration appear on track, too, with the introduction of figures such as Susan Rice and Neera Tanden to the incoming White House.

As the year comes to a close with their primary villain defeated, the movement’s leaders are becoming at least a little more honest while they continue to campaign against Republicans in the Georgia runoffs to deny the GOP a Senate majority even in Trump’s absence.

Earlier this month, Lincoln Project Co-Founder Steve Schmidt announced he is registering Democrat, joining nearly every other co-founder of the project in leaving the Republican Party, including George Conway, Jennifer Horn, and Ron Steslow. Rick Wilson, who appears to not have worked on a Republican campaign in more than a decade but was called a Republican while he bashed Republicans on CNN for years, has also renounced the Republican Party yet is still identified as one in corporate media. Reed Galen, another co-founder of the group who left the Republican Party, acknowledged the true nature of the movement in a December interview with Politico.

“At this point, we’re as much never-Republican as we are anything else,” Galen said.

Yet, for all their deception in the run-up to November, the complicit media loved them. The New Yorker gave the Lincoln Project a glowing October profile. CBS’s “60 Minutes” gave them a special, hosted by Lesley Stahl, who would later dismiss the idea that former Vice President Joe Biden was involved in any scandal at all during her signature interview with President Donald Trump in the final days of the election.

Newspapers jump to cover any new ad released by the GOP-antagonistic group, which is now transforming into a media outlet in its own right, continuing its work for the Democratic Party while legacy publications continue to label them “Republican strategists.”

Convicted fundraiser who tried to work his way into Biden’s inner circle sentenced to prison

Published

on

Amajor Democratic bundler, who raised large sums for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and consorted with Joe Biden, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for what prosecutors said was a “mercenary” political influence scheme.

Imaad Zuberi, a Californian businessman was sentenced Thursday for schemes to funnel foreign money into U.S. political campaigns, then take millions of dollars for himself.

The Los Angeles Times reported that U.S. Assistant Attorney Daniel J. O’Brien said Zuberi was “purely a mercenary, funneling money to whomever he believed would do his bidding.”

Among the many unsealed court records, Zuberi was seen photographed with Joe Biden and Barack Obama when they were Vice President and President. He was also pictured with former President Bill Clinton and former presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. He took pictures with former Republican Rep. Paul Ryan when he was speaker of the House as well as the late Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

Also included in the Times report was a hacked email chain released on WikiLeaks. Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook messaged colleagues saying, “I’m OK taking the money and dealing with any attacks.” Jennifer Palmieri responded saying, “Take the money!”

He also attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party in New York City in 2016 as well as serving as a co-chair of The Trump Presidential Inauguration Committee.

Zuberi made more than $950,000 in unlawful donations to the political committees of Obama, Clinton, McCain and others. Zuberi’s activities extended as far as a recent attempt to work his way into the Biden circle, according to Politico.  

In addition to the money he made, Zuberi also raised $270,000 for Hillary Clinton and $1.3 million for President Obama.

Zuberi, 50, pleaded guilty to a “three-count information charging with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)” for making false statements on a FARA filing as well as tax evasion and illegal contributions to political campaigns. He also pleaded guilty in a separate case earlier in June 2020 to a count of obstruction of justice.

“Zuberi turned acting as an unregistered foreign agent into a business enterprise,” Assistant Attorney General for National Secretary John C. Demers said in a Department of Justice news release.

Cruz responds to pictures of him on Mexico flight, with Texas struggling from deadly winter storm

Published

on

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz confirmed Thursday that he flew earlier this week to Mexico with family members, following the emergence of pictures appearing to show him in an airplane cabin and at a check-in counter, as fellow residents to recover from a deadly winter storm.

Cruz said in a statement that he accompanied his daughters on a flight Wednesday night to Mexico because they had the week off with school canceled.

“Wanting to be a good dad,” said Cruz, who also stated he is returning to Texas on Thursday afternoon.

The storms has been connected to at least seven deaths in Texas and knocked out power to as many as 2.5 million residents. The number of residents without electricity as of Thursday morning was down to less than 1 million, officials said.

“My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas,” Cruz also said. “We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm.”

South Carolina House passes bill that would prohibit most abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected

Published

on

The South Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 79-35 to pass legislation that would prohibit most abortions. 

The bill must pass through a procedural vote in the House on Thursday prior to heading to GOP Gov. Henry McMaster who has indicated that he will sign it, according to the Associated Press. Two Republicans voted against the legislation while two Democrats voted for it. The state Senate passed the measure last month. 

The bill requires doctors to carry out an ultrasound to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is identified an abortion can only be performed in certain circumstances.

The legislation would not penalize a woman for obtaining an unlawful abortion, though the individual responsible for performing the abortion could face consequences.

The outlet reported that other states have approved similar or even more stringent abortion prohibitions which could be implemented if the Supreme Court throws out the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. All of the other states’ abortion bans are currently entangled by court challenges and if the South Carolina bill is approved it will likely face litigation that prevents it from going into effect, according to the AP.
