The Lincoln Project is the Epitome of The Swamp

The Lincoln Project is exactly what you’d expect out of a DC oriented Political Action Committee. It was formed by several prominent ‘Republicans’ and ‘former Republicans’.

Folks like Rick Wilson, George Conway, and Steve Schmidt are part of the founding crew. Guys that you’d never actually accuse of being conservative but have had an ‘R’ by their name. They claim they formed the group because they were worried about the Republican Party’s direction and are trying to save it.

Steve Schmidt worked for George W. Bush, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and John McCain campaigns.  Rick Wilson worked on the George H.W. Bush camping and is currently Editor-at-Large of The Daily Beast (a far leftist media org that traces back to the Clintons through their parent company, IAC). George Conway, the husband of Kellyanne Conway, is a Washington Post columnist and lawyer.

Then there's John Weaver.

Weaver is a political consultant who worked for George H.W. Bush, Senator John McCain, and was chief strategist for John Kasich's race in 2016.

Rick Wilson has said that Trump has betrayed America with his relationship to Russia and Putin.

John Kasich attacked President Trump, multiple times, with Putin memes and accusations for Russian collusion.

However, just last year, Kasich's own chief strategist, John Weaver (yes, the Lincoln Project's John Weaver), registered as a foreign agent for Russian-owned Tenam Corporation, a subsidiary of Rosatom, a Russian state-owned nuclear energy company. He lobbied against potential Russian sanctions.

But these are all Republicans worried about America, right? And President Trump is soft of Russia, right?

Maybe not.. David Harsanyi says we need to call it like it is.

The media can keep calling you “Republicans,” but if you support Democrats, take Democratic Party positions, make voting for Democrats all the way down the ticket a binary choice and moral imperative, and then take most of your money from big Democratic Party donors, you’re a Democrat. That’s fine. You should embrace it.

If the only people you seem to go after are Republicans and your biggest funders are long-time Democrat Party operatives, what does that make you?

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. His company Lone Pine Capital, it seems, has 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, Lone Pine Capital doled out $5,893,300 to Democrats. It gave $1,333,333 to Planned Parenthood.

Simply having an 'R' by your name doesn't make you a conservative. By now, we should all know that... but these folks still don't think anyone has picked up on it, yet.

The Lincoln Project is exactly the type of group that caused the election of Donald J. Trump in 2016. The betrayal of Republican values has become a staple of many long-time Republican operatives and consultants. They're in it for the money. Conservatives are getting wise to these actions and people like the ones behind the Lincoln Project are on their last leg - and they know it.

These are the people getting drained from the party. This is what "the swamp" looks like.

  1. Why are these people trying to take down are country! That is what they are doing if the DemocRATS get in control. We have a President that is not a politician but has accomplished more than any political animal has ever did! He also has people like these that are working against him instead of for him and then you have criminal federal employees, criminalized by the worst President in our history and also the most horrible DemocRAT Party that has ZERO ideas on how to help Americans so there only option is to destroy America and there doing it by backing anti American ANTFA and BLM and they have Incompetent clueless and just ply stupid governors and Mayors trying to destroy states and cities!

    1. Since when is being Anti-Fascist un American? My parents and most people of a certain age fought a World War AGAINST Fascism. Trump wouldn’t know as no one in his family ever fought to defend our Country.

      1. Willie, I think your (rightfully) a little confused. Democrats use these terms as psychological warfare techniques to allow you embrase un-American principles. ANTIFA is not fighting fascism. ANTIFA is fighting FOR fascism, as is Black Lives Matter. ANTIFA and BLM is funded by globalists who want a one world global monarchy. Or, in other words, they want a one world global kingdom, and they want us as their slaves. They tell the gullible ANTIFA hitler youth that their fighting against fascism, while all the time they’re fighting FOR fascism. The principles of our REPUBLIC (ie -America) are pro-freedom and anti-fascism. ANTIFA is fighting to destroy America. Therefore they are fighting for fascism. They are (purposely) deceived by a simple name (ANTI-FASCISTS) and they don’t look at their actions. Burning and looting America is burning and looting the only country that provides them with freedom. Soon America will look like China because of their support.

  2. History will always repeat itself. These RINOS do not even realize once the Globalist (communist) take over
    they will be eaten by their own.

  3. The swamp is being drained? Betsy Devi’s fund organizes a protest in Michigan with clowns dressed up in camouflage and playing soldier with their AR 17. At least she didn’t have to give Trump a million dollars like Ambassador Soundland did. But he has accomplished a lot. Hillary is in jail, Mexico paid for the wall and Obamacare is replaced. Only in the bizzaro world of FOX. Meanwhile enjoy the numbers of death from the virus because we deserve it for following a buffoon who doesn’t know how to hold a bible right. But knows how to grab women between their legs.

    1. well that was a bunch of liberal media talking points. Have you any non – lemming brain cells working at all? You seem to enjoy your mindless hatred of Trump without looking at the mess the lib / dems have created. What has your side done? – crickets!

      1. That’s the best you can do is label me a liberal. Ooh that really hurt. I happen to be a independent who voted for neither of the bums on the last election. I will make sure l vote out the buffoon this year. Why don’t you defend your emperor by telling me all the good things he has done like take all the regulation from the car industry so we can have cars with less gas mileage and more pollution. Or the 28 National parks opened up for R & D. I forgot he did give us the cure for the virus. How is the injections with disinfectant going? Maybe you can try shoving that light down your throat at least you can go out on Halloween as a pumpkin. ( cue the crickets)

  4. The Lincoln Project is doing a better job than the official DNC in trying to bring down Trump, which is absolutely necessary if this country can have any hope of getting their act together. Right now the only thing we are great at is having the highest virus rate and no control of it.
    Most of all, we need a leader who is a decent human being, and has respect for ALL other human beings. The job of a President is to help all Americans feel calm and contained. This President is doing the exact opposite, and he has no respect for anyone.
    He is a malignant narcissist. He is a racist, as is anyone who “adores” him. Really, this is what we want in a President. The rest of the world actually pities us.

    1. Either your one of the lobbyist thieves that Trump has been destroying so the bribery and lawyers keep funneling money to bribe politicians or you have no clue how business works.

    2. Maureen, are you being honest in your accusations of President Trump? Since when he is responsible for the behavior of some democrat whose states are like a third country? calm and contained when half of Americans have being led for years to believe, like you, horrific stuff about this president? instead of letting him govern, like conservatives let the previous president regardless of pretty serious stuff that happened during his presidency. ”The rest of the world pities us”, who are those countries Maureen? I come from one of those countries and conservative people adore Trump! Not because he is perfect or a ‘narcissist’ but because he is a patriot! America first, and I totally agree, for his patriotism and for telling like it is, even if it hurts some sensitivities like yours!

      1. Always attack the messenger. That’s all you can do when you can’t defend someone who cheats on his wife with a porn star. Had his ties made in CHINA and came up with bone spurs when it was time for him to show what a great patriot he is. Nice to see it hasn’t affected his golf game

          1. Really? Where is Tara Reid? Even Fox dumped her. You have to come up with something better than that. Maybe accuse him of grabbing women between their legs. Oh that’s right that’s already been done. I wouldn’t let my daughters in the same building as this pathetic pervert

  5. This is a waste of human flesh eating away at the country people like me fought for. They should all rot in hell but people like that believe in false gods.
    I imagine a swine like Mit Romney is a major player.

  6. I just sent the Lincoln project $1000.00 to support their work. I am a conservative Republican by the way. No more Trump

  7. If you’re calling the Lincoln Project a swamp then Donald Trump is the creature of the black swamp that he has formed since his election. As a republican I am ashamed to have this man in an office where we currently need a leader, not an uninformed angry non educated white racist. And believe me, I don’t say any of this lightly.

    When you remove any and all who object in any way with what you are doing, you invite what is now happening. I don’t want to be part of a vindictive group of blind followers to a man who I honestly think would destroy this country if given the chance. We are a democracy for good sake. If you represent the true Republican party, which includes the men you are attacking, men like Kasich, Bush, Romney, and others, you are really not Republicans. I am a member of that party not the party you represent.

    1. No Scott Noble I disagree. The true Republican party also has it’s alligators. I vote the Republican ticket but I am a true Conservative and I want the party I vote for to follow the Constitution of these United States of America and not all of them do. Certainly not the ones you mention in your post, except Donald Trump. They are traitors to the Constitution and their party like the democrats are to this country. Oh and by the way, We, being the United States of America and We happen to be “A Republic” for the better, not a (democracy) for good sake. Further more Donald Trump is the Best thing that has happened to this country since Ronald Regan except better. Just be sure and vote your conscience when the time comes. President Donald J. Trump. / Sleazy Joe Biden ?????

  8. I see this post is full of democratic dimwit idiots posing as republicans trying to turn the tide. Hey people the TIDE IS Going to be 12:00 Straight Up and High when Trump Wins the next election and continues to get rid of the swamp but the dims seem to be doing a pretty good job of that themselves. Truth is not something any dimwit democrat would even begin to understand nor will they ever know what real Truth is. They have already proven that to the world. Every time they try they get shot down with Truth and it isn’t going to be to long before some of the alligators in the swamp are going to find out what handbags and a pair of boots are all about. Those that follow the TV Media Fake News are Truly Lost. That’s plain to see when you look at some of the comments on this post. Trump has done more for the people of this United States of America than any other President in modern times and has done it with all the alligators in the swamp trying to take him down. He stands for Truth, Justice and the American Way which is what the Constitution of this Country is all about. I don’t wonder why everyone wants to come to this Country, I know why, and it isn’t for anything that the dimwits have to offer them. The dimwits only want to destroy this Country with the ONE WORLD ORDER. Can you guess what that means? I doubt it. Your heads are to far up your asses to see that communism will enslave you if you let it happen.

    1. Drained the swamp? Soundland becomes a ambassador because he makes a million dollar donation to Trump. Scott Pruitt resigns after being investigated by the ethics committee, daddy’s little girl is an intern at the white house . Flynn lies and Roger Rabbit gets convicted by gets out of jail thanks to Bill “ boot licker” Barr. Only in the world of Fox News . How’s Tucker enjoying his vacation. Is he looking for a new racist head writer?
