Well, that messed everything as far being able to take in new donations goes. Our recurring revenue stream is like a 3 gallon bucket with a dime-sized hole in it. We have to have a steady stream of new supporters coming in to make up for those who for one reason or another drop out every month.
So, if you tried to subscribe and couldn’t in the last 2 weeks, know that we are finally open for business once again.
Now back to news:
The last holdout elements of the Republican leadership are now quickly falling in behind the party’s new leader, Donald Trump.
Senate leader Mitch McConnell, spoke at a Capitol Hill news conference yesterday and acknowledged what every Trumpster has been saying for months now – Trump is pulling in new voters by the hundreds of thousands and the mainstream Republican party would be foolish indeed to not embrace him.
Besides McConnell stood Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming, Sen. John Thune, of South Dakota; and Sen. John Cornyn of Texas in a show of solidarity.
The announcement came just hours before conservative columnist Bill Kristol announced that he has a third-party presidential candidate lined up for the #NeverTrump movement.
[Insert tweet]
So far today by 2 pm, no candidate has surfaced. If Kristol is successful in mounting a third-party candidate, that is just about the only thing that could ensure a Clinton victory in the fall.
So why does Kristol seem hell-bent on the destruction of the United States under a Clinton regime?
Well, as it turns out, his magazine, “The Weekly Standard” was owned by Rupert Murdoch – the same person who ordered Megyn Kelly to attack Trump during the first GOP debate.
After Murdoch bought the Wall Street Journal in 2007, his interest the million-dollar-a-year losing proposition began to fade and Murdoch reportedly sold it.
Murdoch then had a much bigger megaphone into the American body politic to preach his open- borders message. From that point on, the once beyond-repute WSJ began a long, slow decline, and this election cycle even stooped to paying for advocacy polling in an attempt to hold Trump down.
This morning, McConnell said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe news show:
When asked yesterday if House Speaker Paul Ryan should endorse Trump, McConnell said:
“You’ll have to ask Ryan about that.”
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
