Jen Rubin: GOP Should Be ‘Burned Down’ with No ‘Survivors

 

The heat rose on the Sunday talkies against the GOP to a new flame thrower level. Literally. This no less from the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin. If we thought the Old Gray Lady was moribund, the Post is on a mission to out do her in her death cry.

On Sunday’s AM Joy on MSNBC, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin renewed a previous attack on former Donald Trump administration members as she declared that they should be “shunned” for the rest of the lives, and that the Republican Party should figuratively be “burned down” so that there are no “survivors,” punishing Trump’s “enablers.”

 

Rubin then repeated her call for “shunning” and “shaming” Trump administration members and complained that the University of Virginia had employed a former Trump staffer for a while. The disgruntled ex-Republican then aimed further vitriol at her former party:

It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose — we have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican party. We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again — will take this as confirmation that, “Hey, it just pays to ride the wave — look at me, I’ve made it through.”

This has become a dysfunctional anti-government party. That is not what the country wants and what it needs. And the proof is in the pudding. The reason they engage in voter suppression is because their underlying agenda is very unpopular. No one’s in favor, it turns out, of taking away people’s health care. People don’t like it when you come after Medicaid and Medicare.

We conservative Gopers disregard what is happening at our peril. What is becoming clear is that we will have an opening on the Supreme court very soon. Not that in the end it will effect our cause to the better to have an addition of a GOP selection. No need to beat that horse.

But this will totally have the Democrats frothing at the mouth. Was it a coincidence that we had the movie “The Hunt” – where elites hunt down deplorables – scheduled to come out this fall?

As if that wasn’t enough, Newsweek decided what was best to do with us after the hunt.

The Hunt –  and it will make it to a theatre near you before the election.

 

A tip of the hat to Newsbusters wander over to hear and view a version of the rant by Rubin with just the “high points.”

Other than that, all is well in the swamp. For the best in conservative news click below

Best moments in debate history! ‘Who am I, why am I here?” Humor

 

1992: ‘Who am I? Why am I here?’ During the 1992 vice presidential debate, Adm. James Stockdale’s opening remarks provided a few chuckles. Ross Perot’s running mate.

I think we could make that same statement for most of the present candidates!

Texas gained almost nine Hispanics for every White last year

 

 

New census estimates show Texas’ Hispanic population growth continues to surpass white population growth, with Hispanics on pace to soon represent a plurality.

The 2016 United States presidential election in Texas was won by Republican Donald Trump by a 9% margin over Democrat Hillary Clinton. As we eye 2020 we would be wise to look at the changing demographics. By 2022 it is estimated that the plurality of the population will be Hispanics:

The gap between Texas’ Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident.

With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year. Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.9 million last year — but it has only grown by roughly 484,000 since 2010. The white population’s growth has been so sluggish this decade that it barely surpassed total growth among Asian Texans, who make up a tiny share of the total population, in the same time period.

Soon to become a plurality, the Hispanic population in Texas has grown massively since 2010. Meanwhile, the white population is barely staying ahead of the Asian population in growth.

Race 2010 population 2018 population estimate Increase
Hispanic 9,460,921 11,368,849 1,907,928
Black 2,899,884 3,441,644 541,760
White 11,428,638 11,912,849 484,211
Asian 960,543 1,433,736

Refresher: Romney and Bain Capital – a Company ‘Harvester’

 

How about a refresher now that Romney has arisen like the “Ghost of Christmas past.”

How easy to forget what a swamp creature he was and is, and we should not be surprised that he couldn’t even wait to be sworn in to attack Trump. His baby – Bain Capital. The harvester which bought distressed companies, attempted to make improvements, but not to worry. If they failed they simply sold their assets, went bankrupt with employees losing their pensions in some cases then on to the next – wash, rinse and repeat. He no doubt was successful. There is no doubt had a couple of super hits – Staples being one.

 

 

 

Here are a few snippets:

 

But at Bain, Romney’s top priority wasn’t to boost employment. As the Wall Street Journal recently noted, creating jobs “wasn’t the aim of Bain or other private-equity firms, which measure success by returns produced for investors.” And, the newspaper reported, Romney’s 100,000-jobs claim is tough to evaluate.

Mother Jones has obtained a video from 1985 in which Romney, describing Bain’s formation, showed how he viewed the firm’s mission. He explained that its goal was to identify potential and hidden value in companies, buy significant stakes in these businesses, and then “harvest them at a significant profit” within five to eight years.

……But this short clip offers a glimpse of Romney when he was at the start of his private equity career and saw businesses as targets of opportunity that could be harvested for the benefit of his investors, not as long-term job creators or participants in a larger community. His remarks were hardly surprising, but they did encapsulate the mindset of get-in/get-out private equity deal makers.

H/T: Mother Jones

 

This video was created in 1985.

People are still puzzled how he became so rich so fast. Especially his IRA.

Mitt Romney’s unprecedented refusal to release his tax returns* is the one about how he got so rich–and how, more specifically, he managed to accumulate $20-$102 million in his IRA.

On the IRA question, donations to individual retirement accounts, which are shielded from taxes until withdrawals begin, are limited to $4,000 per year (and used to be $2,000).

So, barring a miraculous rate of return from as-yet-unspecified “investments,” it’s hard to see how Romney’s IRA could have grown so large.

But since Romney’s IRA investments are disguised via a byzantine series of offshore entities designed at least in part to minimize US taxes, it is impossible to do this analysis without having access to his returns. More at Business Insider

Maxine Waters: ‘GOP afraid of a strong black woman’

 

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the Republican Party was scared of her being the chair of the Financial Services Committee because she is a “strong, black woman.”

When asked about a Republican congressman’s comments saying she would harass President Donald Trump with investigations, Waters said, “That’s the opposition talking about what would happen if this strong, black woman Maxine Waters is the chair of the Financial Services Committee. They’ve never seen anybody like me before.

There’s never been a woman in the history of this country that’s been the chairperson of the Financial Services Committee, and certainly never a black woman. And so they send out these dog whistles to their constituents to get them fired up about the possibility of what Maxine Waters might do.”

Move it up to about 4:50 if you want to avoid her rant on Trump and CA forest fires among other things.

Sure we are Maxine- This is going to be something.

Pelosi Thinks “BUSH” Is President? and Waters Thinks “Putin invaded Korea???

 

 

Encore time for President Donald Trump! Vote Vote Vote!

 

This is why we are great again! Vote, Vote, Vote.. This is the big day. Let’s have an encore with a big night tonight counting all of those Red Votes. Pass the video along. A reminder of just who Trump is and what he stands for.

 

Remember this one? Let’s give the special snowflakes an encore.

Maxine Waters will Chair Financial Services Committee – get out and vote!

 

I have been trying to think of something to post today that would be a motivator for Tuesday’s election. I looked through clips of Thomas Paine, John Adams, military bands, you have the drift. But of course, there is nothing more terrifying than the thought that Maxine Waters would be chair of the Financial Services Committee.Yes, I think this clip ought to do it.

One of the most corrupt politicians in congress.

The United States House Committee on Financial Services (also referred to as the House Banking Committee) is the committee of the United States House of Representatives that oversees the entire financial services industry, including the securities, insurance, banking, and housing industries. The Committee also oversees the work of the Federal Reserve, the United States Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and other financial services regulators.

 

Speaking this week at Black Women Network Breakfast, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told voters that payback is coming if the Democrats take back the House.

Waters told the attendees how “important” the upcoming midterm election is.

 

 

 

“First of all, if we take back the House, most of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus will be chairs of the committees of the Congress of the United States of America,” Waters told the group. I will be the first African-American, the first woman to chair the powerful Financial Services Committee. That’s all of Wall Street. That’s all the insurance companies, that’s all the banks. And so, of course, the CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters? Because if she gets in, she’s going to give us a bad time.’”

She continued, “I have not forgotten you foreclosed on our houses. I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities. I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk, and for mess that we could not afford. And in doing that, I have people who are homeless who have never gotten back into a home. What am I going to do to you? What I am going to do to you is fair. I’m going to do to you what you did to us.”
