The Lincoln Project Got Attention but These Never Trumpers Got Results

  The Lincoln Project Got Attention but These Never Trumpers Got Results The Lincoln Project doesn’t do subtle. The smashmouth, Never Trump super PAC, run by a renegade band of Republican strategists, produced some of the most scathing attacks on the forty-fifth president of the last four years. That’s not compared to just the other Never Trump political groups. That’s compared to all groups, of all political persuasions. The Lincoln Project spots were acutely personal and had little to do with any policy differences. Much the way Trump mercilessly assaulted his political opponents and other critics, the group’s ad makers put Trump’s character flaws under a microscope—and flayed him.

FIRST ON FOX: Top GOP House leaders and 160 lawmakers called on President Biden Wednesday to fix the U.S. "supply chain crisis" or face a doomed holiday season.

In a letter to the president first obtained by Fox News, the Republicans asked that Biden reverse his policies relating to the coronavirus they believe have disrupted U.S. infrastructure abilities and supply chains.

"We request that you stop the litany of harmful regulatory actions that are driving up energy costs and to stop attacking the American businesses with vaccine mandates, taxation and government handouts that are disincentivizing work," Ranking Member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Rep. Sam Graves, R-Mo., who led the letter to Biden, said.

Online orders are late, ships are lining up, no-one can find a truck driver. What's going on with global supply chains?

  Online orders are late, ships are lining up, no-one can find a truck driver. What's going on with global supply chains? Around the world, ships are lined up waiting to enter port and companies can't find containers or truck drivers to take their goods to their final destination. Meanwhile, you're still waiting for that delivery. What's going on with the global supply chain?Pretty much everyone you speak to will have a story about something they're waiting on.


Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., signed onto the letter along with 157 other Republican congressmen, over two-thirds of all House Republicans.

House Republicans pointed to not only worker shortages plaguing the U.S., but Biden’s multitrillion-dollar two-bill infrastructure package.

The bundle includes funding for infrastructure and clean energy, along with a social spending package dubbed "social infrastructure" – which will include funding for items like free childcare, a move the administration argues will get women back in the workforce.

But Republicans argued in their Wednesday letter that the administration’s "radical" policies are "exacerbating" the underlying supply chain crisis, making it more difficult for businesses to recover from the pandemic.

Biden called on the private sector last week to "step up" and work with his administration to fix the existing supply chain backlog prohibiting businesses from delivering goods and receiving raw materials.


Companies like Walmart and UPS have extended hours of operation to help address the supply crisis and ports in Los Angeles will operate on a 24/7 basis to clear a cargo backlog.

"Despite calls from the private sector for help addressing growing supply chain issues, like expanding capacity, your administration has only further fueled the crisis by increasing energy costs, triggering significant inflation through reckless unchecked spending, and attacking American businesses," the letter states.

The GOP-led letter comes as reports surfaced this week that suggested the president has agreed to slash the initial $3.5 trillion price tag to somewhere between $1.75 trillion and $1.9 trillion.

"Multiple factors have contributed to the Nation’s supply chain crisis, but one factor that is being overlooked is how the collection of harmful policies being pushed by the president and his party is making matters worse," Graves told Fox News.

"The president is telling the private sector to ‘step up’ and fix these issues, but the president needs to lead by example, step up himself, and reevaluate his agenda that is making this supply chain crisis worse."

Democratic leadership is expected to make a deal and pass the legislation in the House by Oct. 31.

Dems Have to Choose on Gerrymandering: the High Road or More Seats .
As states begin to cement their congressional maps for the next decade, Democrats have a choice. They can take the high road, operate as if their gerrymandering reforms had passed Congress, and try to draw fair lines that would accurately represent a state’s political composition. Or, with Republicans aiming to draw the most aggressively GOP-favorable maps possible in order to take back the House of Representatives, Democrats can play the same game.
