Sanford’s fatal sin: Crossing Donald Trump
Politico, by Alex Isenstadt

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/13/2018 4:39:36 AM

In the end, it wasn’t the Appalachian Trail that brought down Mark Sanford. It was President Donald Trump. The South Carolina congressman’s stunning defeat in Tuesday’s Republican primary effectively ended the turbulent two-decade career of a political icon who once harbored presidential aspirations. From his time as a congressman in the 1990s, to his eight-year governorship, to his unexpected House comeback that followed, Sanford had long established himself as a figure who cut against the grain — the rare politician who loved to break with his own party. Yet in taking on Trump, his friends and political allies say, he took it

FTA: “Sanford himself had expressed concern that a loss in the primary would discourage what dwindling GOP dissent among against the White House remains.”

Why does the Republican Party feel the need to have outspoken dissenters in its ranks? Do they not understand that we need unity to achieve the agenda that the American people voted for? It seems they just can’t help themselves. It really is disturbing that they cannot understand the concept of backing a winner. The democrats on the other hand stick together regardless. Buy a clue all you maverick minded Republicans! Do the WILL of the people, support this President. Good riddens, Sanford. We’re much better off without you and your sanctimony.

To praphrase this entire article in 2 sentences: Sanford never understood his voters. The tweet from POTUS may have been the final nail.

“He made a calculation in the post-Trump election that he was going to stand on principle."

WHAT principle? To be a jerk and work against the wishes of the People because you personally don´t like Trump? Because, like a whiny liberal, you are annoyed Trump won?

After Trump´s post election meeting with Congress, Sanford found it "necessary" to comment "I wasn´t particularly impressed". What snark. Arrogance, obnoxiousness, and obstructionism is NOT a principle.

Sanford richly deserves this loss. I hope it stings for a long time.

Sanford was a dyed in the wool McCain-ite. He loved thinking he was the only brain in the room and had all the answers. Hubris was his middle name. But, he failed to understand that old formulas does not work anymore. Trump changed everything- not only for Democrats and leftists- but also for these "Republican-Lite" pols who love to think their key to the power box lies with GD Democrats. The people are- for now at least - waking up to those kinds of filthy political charlatans.

If McConnell and Ryan were capable of providing some savvy leadership we would not have all of this independent action by whiners, never-Trumpers and peacocks. Hopefully the next election will fix that too. These people forget that what they want does not matter, it´s what the people who elected them want.

Isn´t Sanford the guy that left his family, and abandoned his job of governor to go chasing after some Brazilian journalist like an infatuated high schooler? How can he criticize anyone without coming across like a total complete hypocrite? Considering the election results, it is safe to say he wasn´t successful.

Seriously, all too often, watching a critic is the equivalent of watching a dog that suddenly stops and relieves itself. Not pretty, and something you wish you hadn´t seen. More and more, that is what Trump critics are devolving into. Wish they would just stop.

Sanford was a man who had it all. He was frequently named as a Republican candidate for President. And then he threw it all away for a sleazy affair. He got a temporary reprieve when he was elected to Congress and then, decided to take on Trump! Now he has lost the governorship, his wife, his girlfriend and his Congressional seat. I think God is trying to tell him something.

Let Sanford be a lesson to all Republicans. We demand the MAGA program be implemented. I was glad to see so many retirements, starting with Ryan, Gowdy, Sasse and Corker. A surprise is that the Against Trump National Review is still published.

Now we turn to carpetbagger Mitt Romney. Please Utah, vote for Dr. Mike Kennedy who is also a Mormon and supports President Donald Trump the Great. I donated to his campaign.

To go against your party because they are making a mistake or doing something evil is honorable. Look at Joe Lieberman. He was the perfect example of that.

But Sanford, McPain, Flake, and several others just go against their party so that they can be branded as "rebels". They go against the president and the Republican Party even when they are doing good things (like trying to do away with the huge evil mistake of Ovomitcare).

Thank God most of them will be gone shortly. Stanford got defeated. Flake knew he would be defeated and just "retired". McPain is on death´s doorstep due to his cancer. We can only pray that good, conservative Republicans will take their places and President Trump can continue his agenda to Make America Great Again!!!!!!!

There´s a road down here in SC that leads to some property Sanford owns. It was a long, narrow dirt road, Hardly anyone lived on it, but it ended up at one of Sanfords´ properties on the waterfront. Then one day I´m driving by and .. VIOLA! ... the county had paved the road beginning to end. Needless to say, anybody down here can name 10 dozen well traveled roads that should´ve been paved before THAT one. He lost me right then and there.

In late October of 2016 James Comey knew Donald Trump’s candidacy was as dead as a doornail. That must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come from the story I am going to relate. Time soothes the edges of old emotions. We forget the shock of that election night. Almost two years now of articles and TV takes, even books, make Trump’s election seem understandable, even sometimes inevitable. But that’s not how it was then. When FBI director Comey and the FBI dropped their late October Anthony Weiner surprise, they did so fully confident that Hillary Clinton would win. What

It seems the the White House press corps includes people who believed it when they were told as children that there’s no such thing as a stupid question. I assure you there most certainly is, and many of them are coming today from some of the men and women who cover the White House. Consider, for example, what CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted this week in Singapore at Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s potbellied boy-dictator. “Will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?" the CNN reporter asked before Kim and President Trump had even sat down for their planned summit on the denuclearization

Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report points to multiple irregularities in FBI chief James Comey’s actions in the 2016 election campaign, sees no evidence of political bias, but never really gets to the bottom of why Mr. Comey played the role he did. Mr. Comey may have been worried that a Justice Department decision not to prosecute Mrs. Clinton would lack credibility, but it was in no sense his obligation to solve this problem. It simply was not the FBI chief’s job to relieve the Obama administration of the need to sell its decision to the electorate. This is why we have elections. It’s what political accountability is all about.

American women live under a suffocating patriarchy. Rape culture flourishes in the United States. Toxic masculinity stunts the emotional and professional growth of American females. Sexual harassment and predation are ubiquitous in American workplaces. College campuses are maelstroms of sexual violence. Female students need safe spaces where they can escape abusive male power. These propositions are self-evident to a large, interlocking establishment of government bureaucrats, progressive politicians, college administrators, faculty, “activists,” professionals, and journalists. Yet this same establishment is up in arms

It didn´t take long for defenders of the FBI´s Trump-Russia investigation to claim that the Justice Department inspector general´s report found no bias in the bureau´s conduct of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, nor in the early days of the Trump-Russia probe.

What was going on in Donald Trump´s head when he tweeted Friday in response to the inspector general´s devastating report on the FBI that "Christopher Wray will bring it proudly back!"? Perhaps the president thought he had better things to do than face another interminable nomination battle for a new director. Or perhaps he was trying to co-opt Wray. But if the FBI is meant to come back, proudly or otherwise, Christopher Wray is not the man. He is part of the problem. In fact, Wray's continuance as director signals the government is not serious about significantly reforming the FBI and that what changes will be made will be

Perhaps none were so openly heartbroken as residents of this small village in Kenya. The president’s familial ties brought boom times to Kogelo: international attention, hordes of tourists, and money for social welfare, scholarship and development programs all tied to Mr. Obama’s international celebrity and open pride in his Kenyan roots. Now, with the good times a distant memory, the locals are hoping for a revival in tourism and donor largesse next month when they welcome

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest.

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel.

You wonder why Fox News is Number One in cable? It´s because CNN, MSNBC, NBC and the rest are so relentlessly negative about Donald Trump they force people to watch Fox to find out the truth about the growing economy or the historically low unemployment rates for blacks. Take this week´s Singapore Summit. No matter what President Trump accomplished in Singapore in his face-to-face meeting with North Korea´s Kim Jong Un, for Joe, Mika and their fellow foreign policy experts in the media, it was not enough. Or it was too much. Or Trump was naive or stupid. Or he gave away too much. Or he didn't ask "Little Rocket Man"

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´
