We Owe The Lincoln Project Our Thanks

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

They’ve done conservatives a great service by laying bare the grift and hypocrisy at the heart of the Republican establishment.

Joseph R. Biden is the 46th president of the United States of America, and the Lincoln Project, a ragtag gang of overweight former Republican consultants, is gorging on its own smug self-satisfaction.

How responsible they are for Biden’s narrow victory remains an open question. The targets of the Lincoln Project’s efforts in the November senatorial elections—from Mitch McConnell to Susan Collins—won re-election comfortably. They did successfully participate in ousting Georgia Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, but that had more to do with expanded turnout in poor and minority communities than with the suburban voters whom the Lincoln Project targets. Those suburbanites sharply swung back to Republicans in the runoffs, fearing the consequences to their pocketbooks of unified Democratic control of Washington.

The Lincoln Project—from its name to its founders’ public witness—cloaks itself in the shroud of a fundamental, unblemished morality. Armed with their self-professed virtue in eschewing Trumpism, they have appointed themselves judge, jury, and executioner of those they deem to be committing violence against their own conception of the American way of life.

Fair enough. Every political movement worth a damn sees itself as the arbiter of the good. But it’s then worth examining our supposed moral betters’ own witness, both personal and professional, to judge their worthiness.

In short, they don’t measure up.

The Prickly Pear’s TAKE ACTION focus this year is to help achieve a winning 2024 national and state November 5th election with the removal of the Biden/Obama leftist executive branch disaster, win one U.S. Senate seat, maintain and win strong majorities in all Arizona state offices on the ballot and to insure that unrestricted abortion is not constitutionally embedded in our laws and culture.

Our state and national elections are at great risk from the very aggressive and radical leftist Democrat operatives with documented rigging, mail-in voter fraud and illegals voting across the country (yes, with illegals voting across the country) in the last several election cycles.

Read Part 1 and Part 2 of The Prickly Pear essays entitled How NOT to Vote in the November 5, 2024 Election in Arizona to be well informed of the above issues and to vote in a way to ensure the most likely chance your vote will be counted and counted as you intend.
