Divided We Stand
New book about the 2020 election.

Saturday, June 22, 2024


Our 2020 book is titled Divided We Stand: The 2020 Elections and American Politics.  Among other things, it discusses the state of the partiesThe state of the GOP is not good.  Neither is the condition of the conservative and libertarian movements.

Ben Rothove at The Washington Examiner:
Turning Point USA was once merely a somewhat controversial right-wing student organization, but it has quickly turned into one of the most destructive forces in Republican politics.

Last weekend, Turning Point hosted its “People’s Convention” in Detroit with headliners including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), and former President Donald Trump. Beyond politicians, controversial speakers at the event included conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, “Pizzagate” promoter Jack Posobiec, and Candace Owens, who recently left the Daily Wire because of her ignorant remarks about Israel.

Turning Point has also had a considerable number of personnel problems. The organization had to fire a TPUSA ambassador earlier this year after she posted on X, “The Zionist Jews controlling our planet are all pedophiles who have no regard for the sanctity of human life and purity,” while a top official at Turning Point Action resigned in April after being accused of forging more than 100 signatures to get on the ballot for a state legislature election.

Turning Point, as it now stands, is doing far more harm than good for the conservative movement.
