Bearing Drift content partner Chris Saxman’s weekly Zoom event is this afternoon at 3:00 – join in the conversation! Tune in here. Also be sure and check out his Top Ten List of political this-and-that: New Top Ten List.
Bearing Drift finance editor D.J. McGuire has reaction to Donald Trump’s CNN town hall meeting Wednesday night where he notes that beneath the headlines, both Donald Trump and the closest thing to his GOP rival are still courting the Kremlin by neglecting Ukraine: Moscow Primary Rumbles On.
An encore reading of Bearing Drift senior contributor Kristina Nohe’s May 2021 post proves that it remains relevant in today’s GOP political atmosphere. Quoting Reagan, she writes, ” ‘To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.’ Ronald Reagan’s warning should ring like a siren in the ears of every Republican capitulating to the delusional conspiracies of a certain septuagenarian from Florida:” A Republican Woman Spoke Up … Again.
And last but not least our content partner Bill Bolling shares his takeaways from Trump’s town hall meeting, opining, “I have little doubt that Trump will be the Republican nominee for President in 2024. There appears to be absolutely nothing he can do to lose support among the base of the Republican Party. His following has honestly become a cult. I wish it were not so, but it is, and it pains me greatly to see what has happened to the GOP:” Bolling: Trump Townhall Takeaways.
This list of writers includes two former elected officials – former Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and former Virginia House of Delegates member Chris Saxman; one who has run for office in the past – DJ McGuire; and one who is married to a former Prince William supervisor and was a member of the GOP State Central Committee and a grassroots leader – Kristina Nohe. And I have managed campaigns, worked grassroots through the years, and was a member of the GOP State Central Committee. This is a sample of how involved the Bearing Drift crew has been and continues to be in Virginia politics.
