Roger Stone-linked group threatens GOP: If Trump goes down, so will Senate majority

Conservative operatives and a super PAC linked to the GOP’s infamous filthy trick, Roger Stone, are calling on Trump supporters to punish Republicans by planting Georgia’s decisive Senate proceedings, or rather writing in Trump’s name. And while their efforts remain on the fringes of the party, the trajectory of the movement fears Republicans fear it could come under Senate GOP control. So far, the most aggressive call to boycott or cast protest votes in the two run-down races with a dormant, pro-Trump super PAC linked to Stone has been a new initiative to retaliate against the Republican Party’s supposed turnovers by handing over to Democrats the American Senate. The group, called the U.S. Sovereignty Committee, has unveiled a new website that encourages Georgia. Republicans are writing in Trump’s name in the upcoming Senate election, which could determine the party that will control the upper house during the first two years of President-elect Joe Biden. The PAC argued that this would show support for the president and force Republicans to address the wild election-fraud conspiracy theories raised by Trump supporters and members of his own legal team. “If we can do that, we have a real chance when these RINO senators were acted in an illegitimate and corrupt election led by a democratic party and invested in the communist takeover of our Great Nation,” he wrote on the group’s new website, writeintrumpforgeorgiasenate.com . “We will not stop for you, the American patriot, to fight the evils of socialism and inferior religions.” Says Report is the watchdog of the Department of Justice, which is undergoing a sudden change in Roger Stone’s sentence. This effort represents a broader push from some of the president. Trump’s most committed supporters, who are holding back two Georgian Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who are facing competitive challenges, are hoping that the party’s fears of losing support for the loss of the U.S. Senate will be strengthened in order to reap more support. to change the choice. Operations said the goal was to uncover an alleged massive electoral fraud conspiracy perpetrated by high-ranking Republicans in the state of Georgia, including Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In 2016, the U.S. Sovereignty Commission and a sister nonprofit group were set up as vehicles for renowned Trump party operational staff — notably Stone and Blackwater’s former boss, Erik Prince — to try to suppress the black vote with the baseless claim that Bill Clinton had a biracial son. van. Since then, it’s mostly quiet. The PAC’s recent submissions to the Federal Electoral Commission only reveal existing federal and state tax liabilities, and Georgia’s new efforts don’t seem to have received much yet. Comments were emailed to the U.S. Sovereignty Commission and the file submitted to the FEC was not returned. California political activist Pamela Jensen, who led the group, was not successfully reached. Her husband, a lawyer named Paul Jensen, who describes Stone as his “long client,” told The Daily Beast in an email that his wife “has no comments, and neither do I.”. Stone did not answer questions about his current involvement with the group. The strategy of the U.S. Sovereignty Committee faces significant hurdles — especially that there is no room for ballot candidates on Georgia’s run-down ballots, which simply ask voters to choose one of two candidates. But the efforts behind the super PAC and other pro-Trump activists to get Georgian Republicans to their knees have nevertheless gained much attraction over the past week, largely thanks to public statements by Sidney Powell, who in a Newsmax interview on Saturday said he envisioned voter fraud Dominion voting machines and Venezuelan bribes are involved, ranging all the way to Kemp and Raffensperger. Powell even suggested that Loeffler would have lost MP Doug Collins, the Republican’s main challenger, this month if the Georgia election had not caused the alleged voter fraud. Kemp and the Secretary of State have to go along with it because they are on the Dominion scam and are bought or rewarded at the last minute with a $ 100 million contract for the Dominion. fans enraged by Powell’s conspiracy theories have been fueled by internal polls showing that a relatively small percentage of the state’s Trump voters are so dissatisfied that they can rebuke the GOP’s own senate candidates. One Republican colleague who saw this poll told The Daily Beast that the number was “one digit”. But the run-off races on January 5 are expected to be extremely tight, even without mistakes. And even Republicans who are fully immersed in the conspiracy theories surrounding Trump’s electoral defeat say they are worried that this will stifle GOP involvement, potentially enough to cost the party two Senate seats and a majority. be. “The incompetence of the secretary of state and the governor’s failure to lead could mean that Republicans just stay home,” said Newt Gingrich, a former congressman in Georgia and president of the House, “I think there is a very big problem with Republicans appearing.” Gingrich Monday “In an interview, he told The Daily Beast that he was absolutely convinced that Democrats would try to steal both Senate elections. Republicans” can actually win the referendum, but they can’t win the counted vote, “Gingrich predicted. they have a campaign … The problem is when we do all these – traditional, classic campaigns – if the other party has enough control over the election machine, they just beat it. ”But Gingrich said he hoped such horrible predictions of inevitable election thefts lead Republicans to polling stations instead of reinforcing voter apathy, which he says is worried. “I have a very simple model,” he said. “You have to win with a bigger difference than you can steal.” Rush Limbaugh scores 180, blowing up Sidney Powell after Trump’s team rejects HerT. While Gingrich can clearly see the stakes in the runoff, others are Republicans not. On the Parler conservative community page, grieving Trump fans said they expressed displeasure with the GOP by skipping the drafts or writing in Trump’s name. Last week, talk radio presenter Rush Limbaugh said “never Trump” Republicans are desperate for their votes during the runoff, suggesting that the votes of Trump’s fans can be grabbed. “It’s funny that these never Trump people don’t want us to save their bacon right now while they sat on their butts and laughed at Trump and us to vote for him,” Limbaugh said, finally urging his audience to vote for Loeffler anyway and But Trump-party Georgian lawyer Lin Wood, who sued Georgia to stop the state’s vote certification, tweeted on Saturday to vote only in the run if Loeffler and Perdue did not take more action against election day allegations of voter fraud. Threaten to withhold your votes and your money. “Demand that they represent you.” Conservative operative Ali Alexander, who organized “Stop the Steal” protests across the country, demanded that Perdue and Loeffler call on Kemp to order a special session of the Georgian legislature to investigate claims of electoral fraud, if not, Alexander said. Trump fans are boycotting the run. “Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue can either do what we said because we are their voters, we are their donors, we are our volunteers, or we have literally won,” Alexander said before mimicking his critics ’concerns about Senate scrutiny “Oh, but Ali, will the Democrats take over the Senate then? I’d rather have an enemy in my face than a traitor.” Alexander, who has nearly 200,000 Twitter followers and is prone to grandiose statements about his own influence within the party, threatened to launch primary campaigns across the country as part of ‘Stop the Steal’. ”The anti-Republican brand, which is not sufficiently supported in Trump’s post-election legal efforts. He claimed he could convince 100,000 Georgian voters to boycott the January 5 run and urged his fans not to donate to Georgian Senate candidates or Republican groups, saying they already had enough money. “No one should donate to the NRSC, the RNC. , Kelly Loeffler or David Perdue, ”Alexander said. Alexander’s remarks repulsed Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) elected representative, a former supporter of QAnon, who was sworn in to Congress in January. Greene tweeted that the threats “hand over the Senate to the Socialist Democrats!” “People who pick up donations for their personal PayPal need to upload to the election,” tweeted Greene, Alexander’s obvious effort to ask Trump voters to donate to his PayPal account. .Other Republicans rushed to ensure Trump voters angry with the GOP would continue to appear in the election. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on Monday that Trump supporters are calling on conservative activists to sit down for the vote. “It’s NONSEN,” Trump Jr. tweeted, “IGNORE those people.” More information at The Daily Beast.
