Open Thread | No Labels is Nothing But a Right- Wing Front Whose Goal Is to Throw the 2024 Election to the GOP

Rubin has this absolutely correct.

Opinion Follow the money: No Labels can’t hide its right-wing ties

Just as it applies to investigating illegal schemes, that advice can also help unravel political con jobs. And these days, one of the biggest cons in 2024 presidential jockeying is the innocuously named No Labels organization. It was founded in 2010 to counter political polarization but now has started raising a boatload of money — at least $70M so far — to field a third-party presidential candidate if the “unacceptable” President Biden and Donald Trump are their parties’ nominees.

What’s the group really after, given the utterly dismal record of third-party candidates in U.S. presidential elections?

As an analysis by the moderate Democratic think tank Third Way has shown No Labels doesn’t get close to the necessary 270 electoral votes in any remotely rational scenario. But the group has drawn up a fantasy map showing 40 states it supposedly could win. Members of the Democratic coalition are alarmed; three of their leaders wrote in a recent Post op-ed that No Labels is “obviously targeting blue states and Democratic voters” because on the map “two-thirds of its electoral votes would come from Biden states.”Despite the group’s insistence on keeping its backers secret, dogged reporting has found strong connections to Republicans. Mother Jones followed the money. It found that CEOs of some major corporations have forked over substantial money to No Labels. And while the No Labels donor list does include a few rich people who have given to Democrats, it tends heavily toward those “who contributed millions of dollars to Republican causes, such as past GOP presidential candidates and super-PACS connected to Republican congressional leadership,” Mother Jones reported.

They are a scam. They are a fraud. They are here to election Republicans.
Make no mistake.
Just like the Green Party is here to elect Republicans.
They want to recreate 2016 all over again, because they know, head to head, President Biden looks solid for re-election in 2024.

    How can every story about Biden successes be “unexpected” or “surprising” for going on two and a half years now?

    It indicates clear bias and an inability to readjust when presented with a fact pattern

    The only way both sides journalism can continue to exist is if they minimize the good Democrats are doing and minimize the harm Republicans are inflicting

    The thing is both actions tip the scales to Republicans

    This is not remaining “neutral” it’s a clear right leaning bias

    CPD investigating claims of officer or officers having sexual relations with migrants housed in West Side police station
    By Sam Charles
    Chicago Tribune
    Jul 06, 2023 at 8:50 pm

    The Chicago Police Department acknowledged an internal investigation Thursday into allegations that an officer or officers assigned to a West Side patrol district engaged in sexual relations with migrants who were living in a police station.

    The department said in an email late Thursday that the bureau of internal affairs, as well as the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, had opened an investigation, but a department spokesperson did not address questions about when the investigation began or if any officers were stripped of their police powers.

    A representative for COPA did not respond to an inquiry Thursday night.

    The Police Department said the allegations concern an officer or officers assigned to the Ogden District, which covers the Little Village and Lawndale neighborhoods on the West Side.

    Few details were available late Thursday about the scope of the investigation. Also a focus was whether some of the migrants allegedly involved in the matter were minors, sources with knowledge of the internal review said.

    From Jennifer Rubin:

    “U.S. Economy Shows Surprising Vigor in First Half of 2023” a WSJ headline proclaimed this past week. On Axios, one read: “The economy’s surprise upside” Yahoo Finance intoned, “Surprisingly Strong US Economic Data Keeps Recession Fears at Bay.”

    You might find it remarkable that outlets touting their economic foresightedness and keen analysis could be continually surprised about the economy’s strength after 29 consecutive months of job growth, inflation steadily declining, durable goods having been up for three consecutive months, 35k infrastructure projects, an extended period in which real wages exceeded inflation and outsize gains for lower wage-earners. It’s as though outlets are so invested in the narrative of failure and imminent recession that reams of positive data have had little impact on their “narrative.”

    We have seen far too little coverage of the economic transformation in little towns, rural areas and aging metro centers brought about by new investment in plants, infrastructure projects and green energy related to the Chips Act. It sure would be nice to know what’s happening in the heartland when a new chip manufacturing plant creates thousands of jobs or when a new bridge creates scores of construction jobs and then cuts commute times. So intent on hyping the politics of what the administration is doing, the mainstream media too frequently neglects coverage of what President Biden’s initiative are accomplishing.

    HOLY Crap!  The June Jobs report is a complete blowout:

    – Private sector jobs jumped by 497,000
    – Analysts were expecting just 220,000 added jobs
    – Annual pay rose at a 6.4% rate in America

    People keep trying to attack Bidenomics, but the economy is incredibly strong and…

    Wage growth is outstripping inflation month over month. Inflation still an issue but it is leveling off quite well as job growth continues.
