The organization formerly known as The Republican Party does not exist anymore. Donald Trump has destroyed it.
With his appeal to racism, white supremacists and white nationalism he has transformed the Grand Old Party. It is no longer a conservative organization of affluent and educated voters. It is now a party of angry white people who have a chip on their shoulders and believe they are the victims of a global, multicultural world.
This is something you rarely see in congressional elections: a national party abandoning its own incumbents with just weeks to go before the election takes place.
But that is exactly what the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) is doing to Republican candidates — including incumbents — right now. They are pulling the plug on spending for these candidates who are so far behind in the polls that they have decided they have no chance to win.
What’s bad for Donald Trump is bad for the Republican Party, and yesterday was a horrible day for Donald Trump.
Republicans are suffering because they have allowed Trump to do a hostile takeover of their party. And now, like it or not, when people think of the Grand Old Party they think of Trump.
For people who dislike Donald Trump one of the most puzzling things about today’s political environment is the reportedly high approval level he still enjoys among Republicans.

In a new interview with The Hill, Steve Bannon has inserted himself into some of the biggest controversies and conflicts facing the Republican Party as it heads into the midterm elections.

Republican former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman is continuing her campaign to persuade her fellow party members to stand up to President Donald Trump and get him to resign from office.
In an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times, Whitman said that the president “isn’t fit to remain in office,” writing:
Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are far from unified on many important policy issues. First and foremost among these issues is immigration, especially when it comes to creating a workable U.S. policy on a path to citizenship and the treatment of “Dreamers” under the DACA program. And according to the Associated Press, immigration issues are threatening to tear apart the Republican Party.
Right on cue, the Republican Party in the state of Missouri is falling apart just in time to help Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill in her bid to win re-election in this fall’s midterm elections.
Lifelong Republican James Comey has decided he’s had enough of the Grand Old Party. During a podcast interview he stated that recent events, especially the unprecedented attacks on him by the Republican National Committee (RNC), had convinced him to leave the party. Needless to say, with Trump in charge, the party is no longer either conservative or the party of fiscal responsibility.
Boston hedge fund billionaire Seth Klarman spent over $7 million donating to Republican candidates and political action committees during the years that Obama was president. In effect, you could say that Klarman used his fortune to help the GOP take control of the government.
The Washington Post has reported that Congressional Republicans are now suggesting they want to pass a balanced budget amendment. Which is completely ridiculous since the tax bill they passed into law in December has added more than $1 trillion to the U.S. deficit.
A new NBC poll released Thursday morning should be a wakeup call to the NRA and its supporters in Washington, including President Trump. Most people think that putting more guns in schools is a really bad idea.
Trump cheerleader and frontrunner for the nomination, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, could lose the seat for Republicans and possibly hand the Senate majority back to the Democrats.
