Never Trumper starts astroturf party



Donald John Trump's grassroots movement faces another astroturf challenge as Never Trumpers continue their grift even without him in the Oval Office.

Axios reported, "Ex-tobacco exec bankrolls centrist third party."

The real story is ex-Congressman David Jolly has snagged a new sugar daddy to finance yet another lefty effort to derail the conservative movement. Remember the Coffee Party that came after the Tea Party torpedoed the 2010 election? Somewhere out there, the No Labels movement continues to crank out news releases.

The main purpose of these astroturfers is to part rich people from their money.

The story said, "A new centrist political party is gaining steam, but records show it’s being largely financed by a single man: a former Philip Morris executive who helped steer the company through the tobacco wars of the 1990s.

"Why it matters: The Serve America Movement is running candidates in a handful of states, banking on the appeal of a non-ideological party. The outsized financial influence of donor Charles W. Wall underscores the challenge of overcoming extreme partisan rancor with a process-focused political movement.

"What’s happening: Serve America was founded in 2017. It was initially led by some prominent Never Trump Republicans, Lincoln Project co-founder Reed Galen and former executive director Sarah Lenti."

Galen was the co-founder who was not accused of grooming young men for later sexual exploitation. 

The story said, "SAM has state chapters in New York and Connecticut, and it ran or endorsed gubernatorial candidates in both states in 2018, drawing nearly 4% of the vote in Connecticut — significantly better than any other third party."

I went over to the Connecticut Secretary of State's election page. It listed 4 third parties: Green Party, Independent Party, Libertarian Party, and Working Families Party. Maybe the party meant some other Connecticut.

The big news is, "The party’s new executive chairman, former Republican Rep. David Jolly, is considering a 2022 run for Florida governor on the Serve America Movement ticket."

Jolly is a particularly intriguing swamp critter. He served on the staff of Congressman Bill Young, a rags-to-riches Republican in deep blue Florida who served in Congress for 42 years until his death in 2013.

By then, Jolly had converted his congressional staff service into a lucrative lobbying gig. Knowing election to Congress would enhance his lobbying, he ran to replace Young and won. Voters threw him out after 3 years and he cried his way all the way to the bank just like Liberace did.

Jolly told Axios, "The events of January 6 just ignited this new party movement."

Sure it did.

But I wish him luck. May he have a Holly Jolly Griftmas...

As for Congressman Young, he had quite a life. He grew up in abject poverty. His fatherless family lived in a hunting shack from the time he was 6 until he was 16. He dropped out of school to support his mother. Eventually he became an insurance man in Florida, and was elected in 1960 as the only Republican in its state Senate.

He served in Congress too long, enabling people like Jolly to cash in.

  1. Hi Don, I enjoy reading your articles. Just wanted to note that the Serve America Project endorsed the Independent candidate who lost in the republican primary. First name was Oz, he garnered 3.89% of the vote and likely cost the republican candidate the election....

  2. Remember, "Hoe to Serve Man" turned out to be an alien cookbook.

  3. Maybe Jolly can endorse David Hogg’s pillows as the official pillow of the movement.
