On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "Deadline: White House," Lincoln Project co-founder and longtime Republican strategist turned Trump opponent Rick Wilson tore into Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for promoting an extreme version of Christian nationalism that demands the federal government be subordinate to the church.

His remarks came in the middle of a discussion about a new Lincoln Project ad slamming Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano for his close ties to Gab, a far-right social media platform that has become a nexus of anti-Semitic hatred.

"The thing that bothers me about right Christian nationalism, which they're proud to call themselves, is I mean, this country was founded on the Establishment Clause, the First Amendment clause," said former TIME Magazine editor Rick Stengel. "'Make no law respecting an establishment of religion.' That was a radical notion in the 18th century. Who was it made by? White, Christian men rebelling against an establishing religion, trying to get with the Church of England. This is going back and back, and it's a terrible thing for our country when we should be modernizing and being more progressive and accepting the diversity of the country."

"This is not just on the web sites. This is what elected Republicans say out loud," said anchor Nicolle Wallace, playing several clips of Republicans openly embracing Christian nationalism, including Boebert saying, "The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church."

"She wants to go to Iran, she can. Because that's Iran. She's describing Iran," said Wilson. "They decided there is a little cultural bubble that is separate from the rest of America, that divorces itself from all the values in the founding of this country."

"I wouldn't let them represent a Waffle House," Wilson added. "These are not smart people. But they're persuasive in the group that they — the folks that Tucker [Carlson] spoon-feeds, the sewage pipe he feeds them from, they love it. They think it's chocolate pudding. And they have now decided they're going to separate their culture from the rest of America. It's dangerous to this country. politically and culturally. And it calls into question our survival, frankly."

    Maine GOP candidate is cashing in on tax breaks designed for permanent Florida residents: report

    According to a report from the New York Times, controversial former Maine Governor Paul LePage (R) -- who is making another bid for his old job -- has been availing himself to tax breaks in the state of Florida where he and his wife own property.

    However, those breaks were designed to only benefit full-time residents.

    As the Times' Alyce McFadden and Michael Bender reported, LePage has long pushed the state legislature to make changes to keep wealthy residents in the state instead of moving to sunnier climes. According to the Times report, LePage himself has been investing in property in Florida -- and abusing the law while doing so.

    "Mr. LePage and his wife, Ann LePage, who have owned property in Florida for over a decade, have themselves benefited from that state’s tax laws while living in the Maine governor’s mansion, and again as he campaigns to return to the job. From 2009 to 2015, and also from 2018 through the end of this year, the couple received property tax breaks reserved for permanent Florida residents, public records show," the report states.

    The report goes on to state that the LePages bought two homes in Florida, one of which they have already sold, and took advantage of a homestead exemption for permanent residents while making their home in Maine.

    Noting that savings appear to be approximately a little over $8,500, the Times report adds that this is nothing new as the LePages have played fast and loose with tax laws previously.

    "This is not the first time the LePages have faced scrutiny over such a tax matter — in 2010, Florida officials fined Mrs. LePage $1,400 before rescinding the penalty — and Mr. LePage’s focus on taxes in the current campaign for governor could open him up to attacks from Democrats," the Times is reporting. "Mr. LePage’s campaign defended the tax moves, saying that Mrs. LePage’s mother had used the Florida home as her primary residence from 2009 until her death in 2015, when the couple removed the first homestead exemption."
