Angry GOP Donors Close their Wallets
Politico, by Alex Isenstadt and Gabriel Debenedetti

Original Article

Republicans are confronting a growing revolt from their top donors, who are cutting off the party in protest over its inability to get anything done. Tensions reached a boiling point at a recent dinner at the home of Los Angeles billionaire Robert Day. In full view of around two dozen guests, Thomas Wachtell, a retired oil and gas investor and party contributor, delivered an urgent message to the night’s headliner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: Just do something. Wachtell, who has given tens of thousands of dollars over the years to Senate Republicans, recalled that McConnell responded defensively. Passing legislation

Comments:
It sounds like the money guys are as disgusted with McConnell and the GOPe as the rest of us are.

The GOPe needs to go away. Why not bypass the middleman and just give $ directly to the Democrats? The game is up. With control of both houses and the White House, the RINOs are out of excuses.

The GOPe is owned entirely by the US Chamber of Commerce, motto-"We Like Cheap Foreign Labor." The GOPe cares nothing about individual small donors. Maybe they care about some big donors but probably not if it upsets the CofC agenda.

I agree with #2 but when/if these foolish people simply look at what is happening it is not hard to figure out what to do to run and get to the head of the parade. Understanding of a phenomenon is not necessarily required to take advantage of it. The chinless wonder from Kentucky and his ilk have been taking advantage of conservatives for so long that they are stuck in a do-loop that ends with the collapse of their tight little circle.

McConnell could perfectly well blow up the filibuster or threaten McCain´s committee chairmanship. As for losing McCain´s vote over that, it is gone already. Just do it, just try. Needed the house, got it, needed the senate, got it, needed the white house, got it, needed scotus, got it. Now effing do your part with some courage. Or we will need a new party. And hey neverTrump, thanks for rewarding disloyalty in the party. Now it is blowing up. Nice Work. And Collins, listen, there is no way to a winning GOP without pro-life. You are blowing up the party to win yourself PP donations. Is that what you really want your legacy to be?

We already have a new party #7, it is the MAGA party and President Trump is its leader. Now we need to support challengers and get rid of the scum on both parties. Hard to do, I know. The turtle wonder will not support Moore, so we need to support him with money ourselves even if we don´t live in Alabama. Then support Ryan´s challenger in Wisconsin ans so forth.

I have refused to donate to the Republican Party for several years because the politicians we elected have no backbone. When the democrats controlled the congress and WH no Newt-like republican could be found. My thought was, why give money to a bunch of whiners and losers? IMHO, republican politicians like the position of whipping boy for democrats. They must, since they seem to relish being out of power and in the position of lapdogs. I remember enough from high school civics to understand our system was designed to provide checks and balances to the branches of government, but republican politicians seem paralyzed with fear when positioned to govern.

A new splinter party which would quickly disappear into the ether is not the answer. The hard slog of weeding out some of the mediocrities within the congressional GOP, mostly in the Senate, is the only practical way to go.

I am all for primarying the bad actors, but it is a risky business and some attempts will backfire. It´s going to take two or three election cycles and some luck to create a critical mass within the Senate willing to challenge and dethrone McConnell.

As for Paul Ryan, you can say that at least the House is passing legislation: health care reform (however flawed), 20 week abortion ban. Ryan is not the hot-blooded rhetorical bomb thrower some would want, but he is among the better of the breed of careerist politicians. I would vote for him if I lived in his district.

The saving grace we have is President Trump, who has accomplished so much for conservatives with the limited array of tools at his disposal and shows no signs of slowing down.

I have been getting up to 6 emails per day, claiming to be from Pence, Gingrich, etc asking for money for GOP. Delete all immediately.

Getting about 3 or 4 mail requests per week for GOP. Circular file, immediately, unopened.

As long as they fight against Trump and his agenda, not one red cent to GOP. There will be money sent to individual candidates, but I do not want McC and his evil minions controlling MY money.

FTA: "On Tuesday, Nick Ayers, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, told a group of RNC donors that if Congress failed to enact the president’s agenda they should withhold their financial support and instead give to primary challengers."

And that is exactly what I have been doing. I toss all RNC begging mail and e-mail right into the trash bin. No more RNC bull 5H1-T! I am donating straight to the PAC supporting the (so-called) Republican of my choice. I gave Judge Moore´s PAC $200.00. And I am feeling pretty good about doing that kind of thing. It seems to be working. I can not wait until the midterms come around- There is going to be a Sitting Republican bloodbath. And it is long past time!

I wrote a letter to Paul Ryan at his Capitol office last week after receiving a plea for funds. If it didn´t smolder when someone opened the envelope, it wasn´t for lack of trying or adjectives!

The word “shithole” was projected onto President Trump’s D.C. hotel Saturday. Video shows the word, along with the poop emoji, being projected onto the property. “Pay Trump bribes here,” “emoluments welcome” and “we are all responsible to stand up and end white supremacy” were also projected onto the building. Trump has faced intense backlash for calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries” during an Oval Office meeting on immigration this week. “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump reportedly said, before suggesting that the U.S. bring in more immigrants from countries like

While in office the two leaders had a cosy bromance and were pictured high-fiving and playing rounds of golf and ping pong together.

PHOENIX — Ambitious Republicans anxious for a shot at a U.S. Senate seat have begun quietly jockeying to be appointed as the successor to Sen. John McCain (R), even as he battles an aggressive form of brain cancer. The lobbying campaigns, described to The Hill by half a dozen GOP strategists and aides, have angered many Republicans, who see any public chatter as disrespectful to a senator who has helped shape modern Arizona. Chief among those upset is the man who would make an appointment, Gov. Doug Ducey (R), who issued a brushback pitch during a radio appearance last week.

In Alabama, the Democrats played to win, the Republicans played to lose, and both got what they wanted. The media had declared victory no matter the outcome, hoping for a Jones win but also salivating over the prospect of using Moore as the poster boy of the GOP for the next year. “It was a win-win,” they kept saying. But when Jones did finally win, that line was quickly abandoned and the rejoicing began. Strangely, it took a long time for MSNBC to call the race for Jones. Fox had called it much earlier. So its gloating was tentative at

Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated

Roger Goodell has demanded $50million per year and a private jet for life in order to stay on as NFL chairman, it has been reported. Goodell made the demands in a written counterproposal to the six-man NFL Compensation Committee which is due to debate his pay package on Monday, sources told ESPN. Earlier this year all 32 NFL team owners voted to renew Goodell´s contract, which runs until 2019, and nominated the committee to negotiate on their behalf. But amid plummeting viewer numbers and anger over anthem protests, some owners are now fighting to take matters back into their own hands. Jerry

The Cato 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey, a new national poll of 2,300 U.S. adults, finds that 71% Americans believe that political correctness has silenced important discussions our society needs to have. The consequences are personal—58% of Americans believe the political climate prevents them from sharing their own political beliefs. Democrats are unique, however, in that a slim majority (53%) do not feel the need to self-censor. Conversely, strong majorities of Republicans (73%) and independents (58%) say they keep some political beliefs to themselves.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
