The Republican Party -also known as GOP (Grand Old Party)

Trump’s brazen criminality has proven the corruption of the Republican Party beyond a shadow of a doubt
It’s become very simple now.

We used to ask if Trump had conspired with a foreign power for his own gain—first as a candidate for president, then more recently, while in office—violating his oath, committing high crimes and misdemeanors, and betraying the national security of the country he is sworn to defend.
Then he voluntarily released a transcript of a phone call that made it clear that he did exactly that, while inexplicably believing it proved the opposite. (Or perhaps not so inexplicably; we’ll let the forensic psychiatrists deal with that.)
Then, while we were still grappling with that headspinning turn of events, Donald Trump stood on the south lawn of the White House in front of a dozen TV cameras and did it again, live, in front of the whole world, calling on both Ukraine and China to investigate the man he sees as his chief political rival, and alluding to the leverage he has incentivizing them to do so.
So that happened. ....

We know that Trump believes he can do anything he wants, both by virtue of his office and simply because he’s a rich, white, obscenely entitled mofo who has gotten away with everything his entire life. (“When you’re a star they let you do it.”)
So far the Grand Old Party has agreed.
But now Trump’s sheer brazenness and world-beating narcissism have put Republicans in a tough spot, one that tests even their already well-established capacity for bootlicking, cowardice, and Orwellian disinformation.

In the New Yorker, Susan Glasser writes:
Republicans had spent days denying what Trump had more or less just admitted to…..It was as though Richard Nixon in 1972 had gone out on the White House lawn and said, Yes, I authorized the Watergate break-in, and I’d do it again. It was as though Bill Clinton in 1998 had said, Yes, I lied under oath about my affair with Monica Lewinsky, and I’d do it again.

Even now, after it blew up in his face and prompted an impeachment inquiry, Trump still keeps pointing to the Zelensky readout as exoneration, which is truly disturbing regardless of whether you believe it’s deliberate disinformation or evidence of dementia. The live solicitation of interference from China was just another step down that road, albeit an unprecedented, jawdropping one.
So now the GOP is reduced to complaining about process…..a technique they excoriated in the Bush and Clinton years.
Or, alternatively, they can go todo loco. ...

Republicans must lie to survive
The Republican Party has a problem. A big problem.As the party of the wealthy and big business, how in the world can it convince the working class to vote for its candidates?

This is no small matter. It is not some little glitch. Rather, it is a fundamental core issue that lies at the heart of the Republican Party. It requires a grand strategy at the highest level.The problem is simple. The GOP exists to serve the interests of the wealthy and big business that comprise the richest 1%. No party, however, can ever win an election with only 1% of the vote. So to win elections, the GOP must necessarily reach beyond its own wealthy core and attempt to convince a large segment of working people in the 99% to vote for Republicans.

But this seems impossible.
The masters at the top require the GOP to maintain policies that favor the richest 1% and disfavor the working class. So Republican policies will necessarily be profoundly unpopular to the 99%. Therefore, the GOP could never receive much more than 1% of the vote and thus could never win elections.

This is quite a conundrum.
Normally, a political party wins elections by offering policies that benefit the voters. These policies attract the voters who then cast their votes for the political party.
But for the Republican Party, this is not an option. A candidate could not possibly campaign on the policies favored by the 1%. Just imagine the stump speech. “Vote for me and I will slash your health care! In fact, I’ll do even better — I’ll fight like mad to completely eliminate your health care!”
“Vote for me and I will get rid of your pensions! This would save corporations a bundle and boost profits to the shareholders! Screw the workers!”
“Vote for me and I promise to ship your jobs overseas under globalization! The exact same labor can be hired in Asia for only pennies! Hurray!”

This, of course, is not going to work.
The Republican Party is left with only one option. It cannot possibly be honest about its true intentions and actual policies. The working class would never vote for them. Instead, the only option is to lie.
The Republican Party must lie. It has no choice. It must conceal its true inner core. This is a matter of life or death for the party. The survival of the Republican Party itself depends upon lying. It cannot exist without creating a false impression about its true purpose.

The remaining question then becomes: How best to craft, package and present the lies?
One of the best ways to sell a shoddy product is to hire a likable pitchman. It is the oldest trick in the book. The personality of the salesperson becomes the central focus. People like the salesperson, they develop a bond with the salesperson and come to trust the salesperson. Never mind that the salesperson is actually a wolf in sheep’s clothing who knows full well that they are saddling you with a hunk of junk.
So the ideal candidates under the Republican Party are not traditional politicians with a passion for public policy and a burning desire to improve society. No. They are not actually trying to solve problems for the people.
Instead, GOP candidates are more along the lines of duplicitous pitchmen, skilled at concealing the truth and foisting faulty products upon unsuspecting customers. The ideal candidate would almost be like an actor who could convincingly play the role of a politician.

Enter Ronald Reagan. In fact, Reagan had actually been an actor in Hollywood for many years before becoming a politician. Perfect! Reagan indeed was the ideal candidate for the Republican Party. He was a charismatic figure who focused attention on his likable personality and away from the devastating policies implemented by his Republican administration.
Reagan was straight out of central casting for a GOP pitchman. He was movie-star handsome, he was very amiable and he projected confidence and strength. You simply could not help but like him. Reagan also portrayed himself as a model of propriety. He purportedly valued integrity, virtue and honor.
Having the right pitchman as the GOP politician is half the battle. But of course the pitchman must stick to the script and always serve the interests of the wealthy and big business instead of the working class. Reagan followed this perfectly.

One central tenet is to always conceal the many Republican policies that favor the rich over the working class. These policies must be kept hidden out of view. Instead, concentrate the focus on other subjects in order to divert attention away from the real economic issues that matter most to the wealthy 1%.
Reagan was fantastic at this. He was always gushing with patriotism. Red, white and blue. Making America great. Waving the American flag. Exalting freedom. Commending the military. Apple pie. Hot dogs. Baseball. Family values.

All of these are good things, of course. Indeed, this is the reason they are employed to beguile the working class into voting for Republicans. But all these matters are completely non-controversial. Everyone believes in them, including Democrats. Focusing on superficial matters like these is a classic technique of diversion. It serves the interests of the rich by delighting the working class while keeping the more important issues out of sight and out of mind.

Of course, the Republican Party does focus on certain controversial issues as well. But clearly, all such issues are carefully curated because none of them threaten the interests of the wealthy 1%. Economic issues always remain out of sight.
The issues pushed by the GOP are the familiar hot-button issues of the culture wars that divide our society. Religion. Gun rights. Abortion. LGBT issues. Law and order.

The wealthy do not care one whit about any of these issues. They would be perfectly fine with resolutions either way. The significance of these issues is that they pose no threat to the economic dominance of the wealthy, so they are safe for public discussion. Thus, these are the issues Republicans deploy to attempt to trick the working class into voting for the GOP.
None of these issues will improve the economic situation of the working class. Not one. Nonetheless, the GOP has been highly successful at using these hot-button issues to induce large segments of the working class to switch over and vote for Republican candidates.

The GOP also uses its pitchmen to slyly push the two issues most important to the wealthy and big business: tax cuts and deregulation. The trick here is that the GOP creates the false impression that tax cuts and deregulation are all intended to help the middle class. This, of course, is nonsense.
The middle class hardly ever receives a substantial tax cut. Can anyone name a regulation that is overly burdensome to ordinary citizens? Of course, there are none. The entire purpose is to obtain tax cuts for the wealthy 1% and deregulation for big business, while scrapping regulations that benefit middle-class consumers.
Naturally, these positions would never receive votes from the 99%. So the GOP pitchmen constantly claim, falsely, that tax cuts and deregulation are intended for the working class in the 99%. Surprisingly, this works. Many in the middle class fall for this deception and vote for Republicans.

Reagan performed fabulously in his role as the pitchman. Reagan always protected the interests of the rich, he concealed the truth about the devastation of his own Republican policies, and he simultaneously managed to convince a significant portion of the working class to vote for Republicans.
Reagan himself was not very smart. In fact, accounts have demonstrated that Reagan’s intellect was shockingly rudimentary. But intelligence is not required for the role of GOP pitchman. After all, this person is a politician only in name, not in function. This person is not actually developing policy solutions or solving problems. The most important aspect of a GOP pitchman is personality.
This is the essence of the Republican playbook — wheel out a charismatic pitchman with a colorful personality who will dupe the working class in the 99% into voting against their own interests and in favor of the wealthy 1%. Reagan executed it superbly.

In our modern day, along came Donald Trump.
Now, some might say that Trump is nothing like Reagan. Indeed, many conservatives in the “Never Trump” camp would fume at the mere comparison. They do have a point.
Trump is different from Reagan in various aspects. Reagan held himself out as a man of integrity and dignity, whereas Trump takes pride in being a liar and a swindler. Reagan respected family values, whereas Trump has cheated on his multiple wives with the likes of porn stars. Reagan spoke in soaring terms of our national honor, whereas Trump rants in coarse profanity.
But with respect to the goals of the Republican Party, Trump and Reagan are very much the same.

Curiously, like Reagan, Trump was an actor for many years before becoming a politician. Trump’s acting was as a reality television performer, which is slightly different, but acting nonetheless.
Trump performs fabulously in the role of the GOP pitchman. He never strays from serving the interests of the wealthy 1% and big business. Like Reagan, Trump places great emphasis on frivolous issues to create grand diversions, like patriotism and national pride. Trump loves to hug the American flag while on stage during campaign rallies, despite the fact that Trump’s disdain for the Constitution likely renders him the most un-American president this nation has ever endured. Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again” is nearly identical to phrases used by Reagan.
Trump employs the same divisive issues as Reagan to trick hard-working people in the middle class into going against their own economic interests and voting for the GOP, including the divisive issues of religion, gun rights and abortion. Perhaps Trump’s greatest exploitation is on the issue of immigration.

Trump does have a different style in serving as the GOP pitchman. Reagan attempted to appear stately and noble, whereas Trump seeks to appear tough, threatening and outlandish. Trump also plays the role of an entertainer, often appearing childish or clownish, such as by resorting to juvenile name-calling. But both Trump and Reagan emphasized their personalities in order to distract attention from substantive issues.
Reagan was not rich himself, so he acted more as a useful idiot of the wealthy 1%. Trump is among the wealthy 1% himself, so he acts directly in his own self-interest. But they shared the same goal of serving the interests of the wealthy 1%.

The lying is not limited to the leaders at the top but pervades the entire Republican Party. This is necessary to sustain the party. The lying is constantly on display from members of Congress to state officials to spokespeople in the media. They are always deceiving, misleading, changing the subject, clouding the issues, presenting a diametrically opposite view from the truth, blaming the Democrats for being the true liars, and forever waging malicious personal attacks against their opponents instead of debating issues on the merits.

To be sure, politicians as a group tend to bend the truth, and Democrats are no exception. But nothing compares to the sheer magnitude and volume of lies that emanate from the Republican Party. The lies are carefully designed to destroy truth by manipulating or confusing the public, and are deployed in massive coordinated campaigns that constitute “systemic lies” with blatantly false labels: “Junk science” to describe actual climate science, “right to work” to describe eliminating workers’ right to organize, “religious liberty” to describe privileging Christians over all others, “death panels,” “death tax” and “fake news.”
The enormity of the lying is simply stunning, and it is carried forth by an army of loyal Republican soldiers at every level. But the Republican Party seems to do the best when it has a highly charismatic personality at the top. A perfect puppet of perfidy.

Both Reagan and Trump have been wildly successful in their roles as pitchmen for the GOP. They both enacted enormous tax cuts for the wealthy. And they both slashed and undermined the interests of the working class, all while remaining popular and convincing many people in the working class to vote for Republicans.

Under Trump, the playbook of the 1% is alive and well and, astonishingly, working better than ever.

Open letter: To the spineless, complicit, irredeemable GOP Trump enablers.

You did this. You have fomented the chaos, division, and discord that Trump sows. You’ve enabled his every foible, you’ve excused his destruction, and you’ve attacked anyone challenging Trump’s cult of personality.

And now that the walls are closing in, you’re silent. Or worse, you’re continuing to defend or excuse the behavior that everyone outside the Fox News bubble can see is destroying the institutions that underpin our democracy. But we know how this story goes. As more and more comes out and even the most ardent Trumpers have to acknowledge that there’s a criminal in the White House, you’re going to try to change your tune. You’ll claim you’ve stood for the Constitution and the People. But We the People see you. We aren’t going to fall for your feint.

In the theater of American politics you took the audience for fools, never realizing that we could see the entire stage. Now that the house lights are on, we see more than the spotlight’s narrow focus and now you’re the ones exposed. You were the chorus and Trump’s been the star. But you didn’t read the script to the end, and there’s a twist: you’re the fools.

Do you honestly believe that after this nightmare is over anyone will ever forgive or forget that you sold your soul – not to mention your country – to Donald Trump? We’ve witnessed your cowardice, your craven pursuit of power and attention. You shouted from your high horse for years about patriotism and duty to country, but you’ve gone against everything you’ve preached, all in the name of Party and Leader over country and principle.

Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Paul Ryan, Mike Pence. The list goes on and on. During the 2016 primaries, I thought you were all typical politicians. I disagreed with everything you said and did, but at least I had a modicum of respect for sticking to your allegedly conservative principles. You openly acknowledged that Trump was a charlatan, a fraud. But you abandoned your conscience the second it was clear that Trump was going to win. And now it’s all coming back to haunt you. Trump’s death-by-a-thousand-cuts has left the Republic bleeding profusely, and you’re standing by with a band aid and a blindfold.

You knew this would happen. You said so. And now that it’s all in the open, you’ve been outed as the greasy, spineless sycophants you desperately tried to disguise. And you put all your faith, all of your legacies in the hands of a man who couldn’t give a flying rat’s ass about your reputation or your future.

So now you’re going to be forever attached, consumed, and tarred by the criminal that Trump is. You’ll be scorned by the People you called traitors. Even the Fox News crowd eventually will come to their senses when it all comes tumbling down, and they’ll turn on you with utter disdain.

I hope you think it was all worth it. Because your names will be indelibly marked by Trump’s stain on our history. And you’ll deserve every bit of it.

House Republicans May Have Committed Some Light Treason
... Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-InfoWars), led a few dozen members of the House Republican caucus to Naruto run a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, inside the U.S. Capitol complex in order to perform a sit in.

The majority rules in the People’s House and there are rules. Gaetz and his co-conspirators are suggesting that Republicans have been shut out from the testimony being given in the impeachment inquiry because it’s being done in a classified setting to the House. It’s important to underscore that this simply is not true.

The Republican members of Congress who sit on the committee either were (or should have been) in this SCIF. The hearing is closed not to “Republicans” but to all members who are not on the relevant committee. And the members of the relevant committee come from both parties.

Gaetz and his colleagues weren’t just protesting, though. They compromised a secure area. This is not just foolish, but reckless. It’s like storming Area 51, except instead of idiot social media celebrities doing it for the engagement, it’s elected political representatives doing it to get airtime on Fox. ...

Gaetz calls Democrats 'angry pack of rabid hyenas' after storming impeachment hearing
GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz (Fla.), a vocal supporter of President Trump, lambasted Democratic members of Congress as an "angry pack of rabid hyenas" just hours after a group of Republican lawmakers stormed a closed-door impeachment proceeding taking place in the Capitol.

Asked on Fox News's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday night whether the GOP had a right to conduct such a protest, Gaetz shot back, saying there "are no rules."

"If we had rules, Nancy Pelosi would have put this issue to a vote and established rules. But the Democrats want to preserve the most operational flexibility," Gaetz said. "So if they're going to have a world with no rules, we got to stop thinking that we can use the Marquis of Queensbury rules of engagement when we’re fighting against an angry pack of rabid hyenas. And that’s what we’re facing.
"I think the president’s right, as republicans we needed to be tougher in exposing this for the kangaroo court that it is." ...
https://thehill.com/homenews/house/46723...-after-storming

Ausgerechnet wenn, oder gerade weil, Pelosi mal nicht im Haus ist -sie war bei der Beerdigung ihres Bruders- machen die Rotznasen im Haus den Molli.
Ich gehe davon aus, dass sie dem Gaetz Jungchen dafuer auch die Hosen stramm ziehen wird. Auf ihre Weise. :-)

John Boehner slams Republicans: 'There is no Republican Party. There's a Trump party'
Former House Speaker John Boehner — Bloody Mary in hand — attacked the Republican party Thursday at the Mackinac Policy Conference in Michigan.

"There is no Republican Party. There's a Trump party. The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere," Boehner, a Republican himself, said. ...

Since retiring from the House in 2015, Boehner hasn't held back his opinions on his former colleagues in the Republican Party. He once called Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas "Lucifer in the flesh." And during an interview with Politico, he openly derided Republican House members, calling several members profane names and idiots, among other things.

A few months after Trump took office, Boehner called most of what Trump had done in office "a complete disaster."

Senate Confirms Another Trump Court Pick Rated ‘Not Qualified’ To Serve
Justin Walker, 37, lacks the experience to be a lifetime federal judge, says the American Bar Association. Republicans voted for him anyway.

Senate Republicans voted Thursday to confirm Justin Walker to a lifetime seat on a federal court, despite the fact that he earned a rare and embarrassing “not qualified” rating from the American Bar Association.

Every Republican present voted to put Walker, 37, onto the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. Every Democrat present voted no. The full vote tally is here.

Walker “does not presently have the requisite trial or litigation experience” to be a federal judge, the ABA’s Standing Committee concluded in a July review.
The nonpartisan ABA, which thoroughly reviews each of a president’s judicial nominees, typically requires that someone chosen for a lifetime court seat have at least 12 years of experience practicing law. It’s not an automatic disqualifier, though, if a nominee has other substantial trial or courtroom experience. Walker falls short on both counts.
“Mr. Walker’s experience to date has a very substantial gap, namely the absence of any significant trial experience,” the ABA found. “Mr. Walker has never tried a case as lead or co-counsel, whether civil or criminal. ... In addition, based on review of his biographical information and conversations with Mr. Walker, it was challenging to determine how much of his ten years since graduation from law school has been spent in the practice of law.”

So why did Walker get nominated? Because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wanted him to. He recommended Walker to the White House.
“This is unquestionably the most outstanding nomination that I’ve ever recommended to Presidents to serve on the bench in Kentucky,” McConnell tweeted in July, just a day after the ABA issued its rating of Walker’s qualifications.

McConnell praised Walker again on Thursday on the Senate floor, calling him “brilliant” and an “outstanding choice” by the president (even though McConnell chose him).
