    The Lincoln Project was founded by George Conway III, Rick Wilson, Steve Schmidt, and John Weaver , all of whom are Republicans - and all of whom want Trump defeated.

    The Boston Globe just put together a compilation of 12 of the ads put together by the group, and they are GREAT:

    "Mourning in America" is my favorite, and it set up rage tweets from Trump. Some of these ads ran on FOX, and may prove to be decisive on November 3.

    I've watched them all as they came out. I like the Russian speaking one with Putin endorsing Trump. Ha.

    Republicans have been ruthless in their portrayal of Democratic candidates over the years. It's time we had some push back from Republicans against Trump. Ha. They know how to do it better.

    Yes an good thing. I hope they come out with something about how he did scold the Dem's over, taking over the country. Yes I hope they will take it over!! It would be nice not to see Trump's ugly head on the news every day and having instead an "calm" relaxed daily news of what is going on in the world. Wow that would be nice.

    I just looked at the Fareed show on CNN; one thing was very clear; the "virus" thing is used by lots of "leaders" to do "power grabs" all over the world. Of course Trump tries that as well, looking at his hate filled speeches. Watch out Dem's he's up to something.

    I saw his "tweet" today. He's so full of hate, it is getting scary. He accuses the "left" of everything he's doing and scares the "rich" that Biden will increase their taxes in an huge way. He's starting the coming weekend another "rally" in N.H.

    Looking at the increase of the "virus" all over , then he's the guilty one and should be punished by the "virus".

    Like I've said before he will use "any" tool to get re-elected. So I only can hope the people here use their brains for a change, but I doubt it.

    Dutch --- Yes he is becoming more and more unhinged. He is full of hate. He seems to be attacking just for the sake of attacking making little sense. He's full of rage, and the Lincoln Project ads just fuel that rage. I do worry though what he might do in one of his rage filled moments that could make global history. With every despot, there are "would have, could have should have" moments when historians ask: "What were they thinking?"

    I saw today an piece of film on Facebook, which showed an large group of heavy armed (dressed like terrorists) "white power" people rehearsing on some desolate road what to do if Trump looses. Scary indeed .

    The Lincoln Project just released another devastating ad that references Trump's tactic of sending federal troops without any identification to unlawfully detain peaceful demonstrators:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzHE_SY334o

    To quote a line from an old movie, the mayor of Portland, Lori Lightfoot (Chicago) and the mayor of Boston (Martin Walsh) are "mad as hell, and they are not going to take it anymore"

    Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh on Tuesday blasted the Trump administration for sending federal agents to respond to protests in Portland, Ore., saying he would not welcome a similar presence locally, and adding his voice to a chorus of mayors calling for a congressional probe of the matter.

    Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum has said in court papers that masked federal officers have arrested people on the street with no probable cause, no warrant, no warning nor explanation, and without providing “any way to determine who is directing this action,” and whisked them away in unmarked cars.

    Constitutional law experts said federal officers’ actions in the progressive city are a “red flag” in what could become a test case of states’ rights as the Trump administration expands federal policing.

    Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security was planning to deploy about 150 of its agents to Chicago, an official told the Associated Press.

    ”We are a nation of laws and fundamental constitutional guarantees,” stated the letter, which was signed by Walsh and the mayors of Seattle, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, among others.

    In a separate letter to the US attorney general and the acting homeland security secretary, the mayors stated that their communities “have expectations for law enforcement, including identification of officers, training, and recorded body camera footage, among many other expectations and policies.”

    ”These expectations are being blatantly disregarded by federal forces,” the letter states.

    The Dem's prepared an bill and had an voting session on it; they passed it, but what is next? Trump will certainly object because it will tie his hands. So we will see who wins; may be we need an "civil" war in the end to reign him in.

    The GOP is busy to fight among each other; if any "bill" will come forward it will be something no one wants. Sorry people this country has become un-governable; the CHAOS is complete, all the way.

    Looking at the total picture right now everything is skewed out of proportion. I wish this country lots of luck.

    The Lincoln Project is not the only group of Republicans working against Trump.

    Republican Voters Against Trump was formed recently to chip away at Trump's support. The new group is set to begin a $10 million digital and television advertising campaign that will use personal stories of conservative voters giving voice to their deep — and sometimes brand-new — dissatisfaction with the president.

    The new initiative is the brainchild of Ms. Longwell; Bill Kristol, the conservative writer; and Tim Miller, a former top aide to former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida. Together, Ms. Longwell and Mr. Kristol have also worked on an initiative called Republicans for the Rule of Law, which has begun its own ad blitz against Mr. Trump.

    After almost three years of conducting focus groups and intensive research on messages that would work with persuadable voters, the founders have created a cache of 100 testimonial videos, most shot on smartphones, with voters explaining why they are making the sometimes painful choice to break with their political party.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/28/us/politics/republican-voters-against-trump.html

    And now, George W. Bush is COMMANDING his SuperPAC to turn on Trump and fight like hell to elect Joe Biden.

    Regardless of such "groups" it again is the stupidity which wins. Sorry people it has become an total "circus' and an "money" fight. I'm getting now constant mail to "donate" and that all the candidates want at least 10 million to be able to compete.

    I've said a zillion times: "Take the money out of elections" it corrupts and does not care if the person running has any "brains"; examples enough, like how did Trump get into the W.H.

    As long as this stays that way, forget any "honesty" and "integrity" it will be "wild west" and stupid and as now super corrupt.

    In Europe every candidate can only spent an defined limited amount of money for advertising and campaigning; that is how it should be. That should be the "law" with heavy penalties if not followed.

    Ant the list keeps growing...

    A few days ago, Cindy McCain officially endorsed Joe Biden, which led to an immediate tweet from Trump.

    https://news.yahoo.com/cindy-mccain-wife-gop-sen-233339134.html

    When Sen. John McCain died in 2018, Trump reportedly said "we're not going to support that loser's funeral," three sources familiar with his remarks told The Atlantic. The president also became furious when he saw flags at half-staff in response to McCain's death, saying "What the f--- are we doing that for? Guy was a f---ing loser," according to The Atlantic report.

    Nearly 500 retired senior military officers, as well as former Cabinet secretaries, service chiefs and other officials, have signed an open letter in support of former vice president Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, saying that he has “the character, principles, wisdom and leadership necessary to address a world on fire.”

    The letter, published Thursday morning by National Security Leaders for Biden, is the latest in a series of calls for President Trump’s defeat in the November election.

    The letter has been signed by 489 people.

    Not all of those Republicans who previously have broken ranks with Trump have called for Biden’s election, although the numbers are growing. Last month, more than 60 former national security officials who served in Republican administrations, including Trump’s, signed a statement calling him “unfit to serve as President.” Noting that some of them held different policy positions from Biden, they nonetheless called for his election, saying it was “imperative that we stop Trump’s assault on our nation’s values and institutions and reinstate the moral foundations of our democracy.”
