GOP Campaign Arm Scrambles To Pull Support From Yet Another Nazi

The Republican Party is racist. They all like to say, “oh, but we aren’t ALL like that!” but they continue to support racist candidates, racist policies, and racist rhetoric. Oh, and let’s not forget that they continue to support the racist squatting in the White House. To that end, it should come as no surprise that the National Republican Congressional Committee – the campaign arm responsible for electing Republican candidates – has been forced to pull support for yet another candidate, this time in New Jersey.

Meet Seth Grossman. He is a man who once held public office in Atlantic County. He also has some rather asinine racist views. This is a man who once said that “the whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap, and un-American,” and used his Facebook feed to link to a white nationalist article that says that black people “are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.” Media Matters has Grossman quoted as saying the following:

“My experience has taught me that we live in a nation in which a jury is more likely to convict a black defendant who has committed a crime against a white. Even the dullest of blacks know this. There would be a lot more black-on-white crime if this were not the case.

However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.”

To that end, once Grossman’s attitudes were exposed, the NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers was forced to say the following:

“Bigotry has no place in society — let alone the U.S. House of RepresentativesThe NRCC withdraws our support of Seth Grossman and calls on him to reconsider his candidacy.”

Ah, Stivers can say what he likes, but the cards are all on the table, and the verdict is in. The Republican Party is the party of white supremacy and Nazism. Further, this Grossman guy is not some fringe candidate who doesn’t have a prayer of winning. He won his primary with three opponents, with these kinds of statements out there. He also garnered support from the Republican Party. Further, he is running to replace retiring GOP Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo. In short, the only reason the GOP is withdrawing support for Grossman is because they now have no choice. Even former Jeb Bush adviser Tim Miller says so:

So, there might be a literal, avowed Nazi sitting in Congress soon – and it’s all the GOP’s fault. If you don’t want to be associated with Nazism, stop supporting the GOP.

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
