A mysterious company created 9 months ago is the RNC’s highest paid vendor of the 2020 election

By Roger Sollenberger, Salon December 4, 2020

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/12/a-mysterious-company-created-9-months-ago-is-the-rncs-highest-paid-vendor-of-the-2020-election/

"...filings with the Federal Election Commission show that the RNC paid Digital Consulting Group more than $42 million for media buys, consulting and marketing between February and October. The company went from nonexistent to being the Republican Party’s highest-paid vendor of the 2020 election, all in the space of eight months.

But Digital Consulting Group presents a mystery. No other political campaign or committee has reported any payments at all to the company. While a number of organizations share the name, this particular Digital Consulting Group — a Delaware company founded Jan. 15, 2020 — does not appear to have a website, and a Delaware business entity search does not reveal an owner or location. The RNC’s spending reports list a virtual address in Wilmington, but beyond that the company cannot be traced.”

“For further perspective, Digital Consulting Group received four out of the five largest payments that the RNC doled out between 2019 and 2020, including a flat $6 million on Oct. 7 for an unspecified media buy. In fact, it has received three of the 10 largest payments that the RNC has ever made — all to a company that was evidently constructed to conceal its origins and prevent the public from knowing anything about it.”

Yes, by all means, investigate this. Perhaps Trump thinks the election was stolen from him via Dominion, because his plans to steal it for himself via Dominion didn't pan out.

Or maybe it was just a brain fart.

Hitler and Mussolini also had big crowds.

Trump a Democrat?  That's simply absurd.

Trump is a plutocrat, running a kakistocracy, in the guise of a populist.

His policy decisions have all been predicated on bribery-- optimizing his own interests.

In fact, I sincerely believe that Sheldon Adelson, et.al., could still effectively bribe Trump to bomb Iran, if they were so inclined.

Bingo! Bravo! Right On!

More from psychologist Mary Trump on her "deeply damaged" uncle.

“President Donald Trump's estranged niece, Mary, says her uncle hasn't conceded the 2020 presidential election because he truly believes he won.

"’He's the only person I've ever met who can gaslight himself,’ Mary Trump told Vice News last week, ‘I don't think he's ever accepted the truth of the loss. I don't think he's psychologically or emotionally capable of that.’….

“One of the core themes of (her) book is that the president's father, Fred Trump Sr., trained his son never to show weakness.

“Accepting defeat, she said, would be a sign of weakness…. ‘Donald is a deeply damaged person.... Probably the most central part of Donald's psychopathology is the need to deny any reality that paints him as a loser or as somebody who is weak.’”

Mary Trump said that she thinks her uncle genuinely believes he won the election and that he's the only person she knows 'who can gaslight himself'

Some people would pass off Mary Trump with a super major axe to grind, being finagled out of part of her fortune. Since she's a bit of a bonanza to the anti Trump MSM, she 's often baited in interviews to say what they want her to say.. But she doesn't give in and is very concise in her remarkable insights into her uncle, IMO.

I would imagine you could pretty much tell one's attitude toward President Trump by if they've had any occasion to be curious enough to have caught either a TV/podcast interview or have a read an interview piece about Mary Trump.

Yes Dave, I did see Peter Falk as what I assumed was a lame portrayal of Castro in the TWZ. Not only was it the worst thing I've ever seen Falk do, but was probably the most shameful episode of political propaganda I ever saw on the TWZ, at least as I recall!

Mary Trump has me wondering if Donald's upbringing ("never show weakness") somehow triggered his narcissistic personality disorder, or are they two separate things, a psychological double whammy.

In 2012 I was fed up with Obama, voted Green Party.  But those last 3 years of Obama weren’t bad, drone strikes aside.

 

Cliff,

What didn't you like about Obama's first term?

It seemed to me in 2008 that the most important domestic issues at the time were the Great Recession -- which many economists thought might deteriorate into a second Great Depression -- and the spiraling cost of medical care. (See my story below that gives my first hand experience with spiraling medical care costs.)

We all know how Obama's handling of the financial crisis turned the Great Recession into the longest economic expansion in history. And how he saved the auto industry without costing taxpayers a dime.

We all know how successful Obamacare has been in getting 20 million Americans on health insurance, affordable to most. Obamacare isn't perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than nothing.

 

My Experience with Affordable Healthcare Turning into Unaffordable Healthcare

Even as a low-income self-employed person most my life (due to my perpetual involvement in high-tech startup companies), I was still able to afford private health insurance from the time I graduated from college. However, insurance premiums began to rise precipitously around the year 2000 and by 2005 I had to cancel my plan due to the fact that I could no longer make payments.

In 2018 I ended up in intensive care unit at the hospital. The bill ended up being $85,000. Thank god I had Obamacare, which left me with only a $2,000 out-of-pocket expense.

The lack of a public option in the ACA, Libya, the sequester compromises, the DEA crackdown on California cannabis clubs, nothing on immigration but deportations.

   In Obama's defense, the ACA public option was shot down in the Senate Finance Committee by a bipartisan coalition of all Republicans (led by Grassley) and Democrats Max Baucus and Joe Lieberman.

   And let's recall also that Obama only had a cooperative, semi-functional Congress to work with in 2009 and 2010, when he was trying to prevent a second Great Depression and implement the first universal healthcare system in American history.

In 2009 the Dems voted to pass any healthcare measure under reconciliation, as a budgetary exercise which only required 50+1 in the Senate.  Obama and Harry Reed were too chicken shy to pull the trigger on a big healthcare program with only 50-odd votes. 

They let that pos Lieberman kill public-option/Medicare-at-55.

Final 2020 presidential election results.

Popular vote:

Biden 81,283,735

Trump 74,221,580

Electoral:

Biden 306

Trump 232. 

 

Brian Cox is both dismayed and optimistic about the future of our species. For dismay, look no further than Donald Trump’s hair. “I saw some rally where he was talking about his favourite hairspray and berating scientists who told him that by spraying out of the can you could have an impact on the atmosphere,” Cox recalls. “And he told the gathered throngs of supporters, ‘Come on folks if the windows are closed how can you possibly have any impact on anything outside of your own space, your own apartment?’ Such a deep fundamental... and of course the crowd cheered. And to watch this.” His voice trails off.
