Lincoln Project Never not just Anti-Trump, but Anti-Republican

Now, this is not just a repeat of the scandals where a cofounder, Weaver, was shown to be a pedophile and was attempting to trade sex for political jobs. This is about the fact that these people are for liberals, has been funded by liberals. and wishes to destroy the Republican Party. Yes, Steve Schmidt supported President Bush a long time ago, but Schwartznegger & McCain who ended up keeping Obamacare alive. Keeping Obamacare is not Republican. He supported Biden. Apparently he interviewed for the Trump campaign manager position. Yea, Rick Wilson supported Republicans in the past, but left the Republican Party in 2016.

However who are the donors for the Lincoln Project? Oh, liberals as documented here;
[Lincoln Project Funders: Exactly Whom You Expect | National Review](

By far the biggest donor has been Stephen Mandel, who gave the Lincoln Project — which, as far as I can tell, produces cheap b-roll-laden ads and takes nearly 90 percent of its budget in “operating expenditures” — a million dollars. Employees at his company Lone Pine Capital, it seems, have given the Democratic Party Senate committee $497,000 this year, $248,500 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign committee, and a bunch of money to other left-wing candidates. During the 2018 cycle, employees at Lone Pine Capital doled out $5,893,300 to Democrats and $1,333,333 to Planned Parenthood.

I’m confused somewhat by one of the other top names: Arturas Kerelis, who news reports say is actually an Internet grifter named Arturas Rosenbacher. Maybe the donor is a different person. Then again, it would fit. (It looks like his donation was refunded.) Amos Hostetter, who dropped over a million dollars on the Obama Foundation, and David Geffen have been giving money to Democrats decades before Donald Trump ever ran for president or “Trumpism” existed. As has another top Lincoln Project donor, Joshua Bekenstein, director of Bain Capital, who gave Democrats $3.5 million in 2018.

Records show the group’s custodian of records, Melissa Nissen, is also the treasurer of Forward Majority, a progressive group that works on state races, as well as the managing director of Capitol Compliance, a financial management firm that receives large sums from liberal committees. In addition, the Lincoln Project shares a Washington, D.C., post office box with Forward Majority and Defend the Vote, a progressive voting group.

It also has explicit ties to Democratic leadership. The Lincoln Project’s top donors include two groups aligned with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.)—the dark money nonprofit Majority Forward and the Senate Majority PAC. Combined, both groups showered the Lincoln Project with nearly $2 million in cash. The Lincoln Project, in turn, didn’t just attack Trump but also Republican Senate candidates, including Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in the Georgia runoff elections. When Loeffler and Perdue lost, control of the Senate flipped to Schumer and the Democrats.

If you are a ‘principled’ conservative you campaign for someobody conservative, or at least Repubican. Even Cory Gardner who didn’t like Trump, and Susan Collins who fought with Trump many a time they didn’t support, they didn’t support even them. Instead their commercials have absolutely no ‘conservative’ principles.

They supported Joe Biden.

Trump supported life of the unborn. Biden supported the killing of the unborn.
Trump supported the Hyde Amendment and supported the Mexico City Policy, Biden abandoned even the Hyde Amendment and got rid of the Mexico City Policy, which means we will support Abortion overseas which will be for funding killing of black & brown babies in Asia and Aftrica.

Trump appointed 3 Conservatives to the Supreme Court anbd wanted to keep it at 9, Biden will support radical liberals to the Supremem Court if he has his druthers, will expand it to 12 or 15 if he can get Manchin to go along with ridding of the filibuster.

Trump led us to go achieve energy indpendence, Natural gas expansion and was for the Keystone Pipeline. Biden destroying that option.

Trump worked hard to get Mexico & El Salvador & Honduras to keep ipeople in their countries and ended catch & release, and worked to stop giving federal money to those here illegally. Biden wants to legalize 11 to 23 million illegals and says those convicted of drunk driving are fine to stay here, and get free health care. Wants to legalize them all to become Democratic voters which means the end of the Republican Party.

Trump is for lowering taxes and worked hard to get taxes lowered, Biden will tax those who provide jobs.
Trump supports Religious Liberty, Biden does not and wants to get rid of the conscience exemption. A byproduct is Trump protected the Little Sister so the Poor, and Biden works to bankrupt the Little Sisters of the Poor. at $70million a year which they don’t have.

Trump supports cops, Biden supports Black Lives Matters, Antifa and the millions/billions lost to rioting and the killing of people at BLM behest. Totally ignored by any lincoln project commercials.

Trump for sure is not a pure conservative but the choice between Biden and him is not even close, the Lincoln Project has been a tool of the Liberal Democrats and has never been for ‘true conservatives’.

'Progressives Pac is even democrats to send thank you notes to the Lincoln Project, while one of the leaders was kicked out:

A progressive PAC dedicated to increasing Democratic turnout and “passing Democratic laws” is collecting signatures for a thank-you card to honor the Lincoln Project’s support of that mission.

Stop Republicans, an affiliate of the Progressive Turnout Project, founded by longtime Democratic operative Harry Pascal, sent an email to supporters this week urging them to sign the Lincoln Project’s card to thank the controversial group for its efforts to defeat Republicans in 2020 and beyond.

The goal of the Lincoln Project is to rid the world of Trumpism. These guys believe that the GOP has been hijacked and wants the party to return to the values that it had pre-Trump. They are not a “tool” for the Democrat party. And as for your long list of Trump talking points, he lost. And he isn’t coming back.
And as long as he controls the GOP I believe that this might be a unusual mid-term election where the GOP racks up more loss then gain.

Trump has no control of the GOP. He is gone. You really need to let him go and move on.
What this proves is what a lot of people have known all along. The the lincoln project was not a group of conservatives against trump. Nope it has been a group of leftist who bought a few rino’s to help the leftist gain more power.
They gave themselves away when they went after conservatives in other races.

Grifters.

Isn’t one of the founders a sexual predator?

EDIT: Yes:

As time goes on, it will become more and more clear, Trump was one of our nation’s greatest Presidents and this positive opinion will be accelerated by the negative acts of the Biden Administration.

They are liberals is all I’m saying. They are not conservative. The items I spelled out that Trump was for, was conservative. Going for legalizing illegals to become US citizens to become dependent on the US government and become Democratic voters is anti-Republican, sure you are liberal and you like that.

Wondering about the ‘conservative’ principles ‘pre Trump’. Return. The items I mentioned above are conservative. What is it, free Trade? Free Trade where we got taken advantage of by China? Is it going into all wars everywhere like McCain/Cheney was into? That is not necessarily conservative, Pat Buchanan, long held conservative, showed that you can be a conservative without getting into all wars everywhere. Rand Paul surely is conservative, he is pretty much an isolartionist. So conservatives have a big range of views on war. What other ‘conservative’ principles are they talking about while supporting socialists like Warnock?

Gee, they are just like some posters (other forums, of course) who pretend to be conservatives or Republicans who just didn’t like Trump because he was so mean. And then they post in support of every Democrat or Democrat supported issue.
Nobody paid any attention to the “Lincoln Project” except Democrats, who loved it. They had and will have no influence in the Republican party.

I can’t imagine why Democrats would donate to a group trying to beat Trump.

They didn’t like Trump because he was mean. They didn’t like him because he represented an authoritarian white nationalist movement that was dangerous and un-American.

Right on the money. Great points.

Right…no control over the GOP.

That’s why the GOP really addressed the Majorie Taylor Greene situation with resolve, didn’t they?

Or why Liz Cheyney was censored by her state’s GOP.

Apparently their goal was to compete with Grindr

I like this description of Trump and Trumpism…Pretty much right on the money… IMO

“In the Routledge Handbook of Global Populism (2019), multiple co-authors note that populist leaders are instead pragmatic and opportunistic regarding themes, ideas and beliefs that strongly resonate with their followers.[18] Exit polling data suggests the campaign was successful at mobilizing the “white disenfranchised”,[19] the lower- to working-class European-Americans who are experiencing growing social inequality and who often have stated opposition to the American [political establishment]Ideologically, Trumpism has a right-wing populist accent.[20][21]

Trumpism differs from classical Abraham Lincoln Republicanism in many ways regarding free trade, immigration, equality, checks and balances in federal government, and the separation of church and state.[22] Peter J. Katzenstein of the WZB Berlin Social Science Center believes that Trumpism rests on three pillars, namely nationalism, religion and race.[9]

I voted for him. What policy was 'White Nationalist? My Dad also voted for him, he is a living World War II vet. We are Mexican Americans and we were both unaware that we were voting for ‘White Nationalism.’ We voted for him because of the policies I mentioned, I was unaware that was for White Nationalism. Authoritarian? Wanting a border is 'White Nationalism? I surely need to know how our votes were ‘dangerous and unAmerican’.

So in other words, conservatives who won’t bend the knee to Trump, thus forcing you to smear them as liberals because of you don’t bow down to Trump you can’t be a conservative.
