    Fervent Trump-trashing Senator Bob Corker blasted the people of Alabama on Saturday for voting to make Judge Roy Moore the Republican nominee for Senate, calling their decision “a bridge too far.” Retiring Sen. Corker broadcast his jab to Twitter, “Look, I’m sorry, but even before these reports surfaced, Roy Moore’s nomination was a bridge too far.” Senator Bob Corker ✔ @SenBobCorker Look, I'm sorry, but even before these reports surfaced, Roy Moore's nomination was a bridge too far. 11:29 AM - Nov 11, 2017
  • It’s Not Too Much To Ask That Our GOP Hacks Show Some Loyalty To Their Voters

    As Jeff Flake joins Bob Corker in America’s political gimp box, perhaps our betters in the Grand Old Party should reflect on how two of their own came to this sorry end. Well guys, there’s this thing called “loyalty,” and out in America we kind of expect it. You DC dwellers should investigate that concept in depth, not only in order to improve your characters – you guys love babbling about “character,” right? – but to save your useless hides from the electoral accounting that’s coming. Let me break it down in simple terms so you don’t have to go...
  • It's Trump's Party Now

    "More is now required of us than to put down our thoughts in writing," declaimed Jeff Flake in his oration against President Trump, just before he announced he will be quitting the Senate. Though he had lifted the title of his August anti-Trump polemic, "Conscience of a Conservative," from Barry Goldwater, Jeff Flake is no Barry Goldwater. Goldwater took on the GOP establishment in the primaries, voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, defiantly declared, "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice," and then went down to defeat battling to the end after the assassination of JFK...

    As much as the retirement of RINOs is a celebratory development, we must remember that they haven't left the premises yet and most are determined to stir up as much sludge as possible. Keep your waders handy. Rinos take leave while Dems double-down on impeachment Pressure from the base is finally breaking loose the staid RINO watch. Moments before writing this, Senator Jeff Flake announced that he will not seek re-election for his Arizona seat. Following in the footsteps of Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, establishment republicans are vacating the Capitol before they’re tossed out by a Steve Bannon inspired...

    A Malaysian couple captured video of a mysterious eel-like "swamp creature" that emerged from their toilet and crawled across the bathroom floor. Zul Hanif Anip, 25, said he and his wife, Puteri, were home Friday in Alor Setar when the creature emerged from the toilet and slowly slithered around their home. Anip said the creature's proportions, a small head with a thick body, did not match any local snakes that he was familiar with. ''I think the creature grew up inside the pipe works connected to the toilet hole, because I have checked and there is no entry point for...

CALLER: Well, I’ll calling, I had two points. The first is that I’m very angry with Senator Corker’s childish and disrespectful comments regarding the president. I have spent my whole morning, and as soon as the office opened, try to reach someone in his office. Apparently the rest of Tennessee is angry with him, too, because I can’t get through. And my other comment is — RUSH: Wait a minute....

    Twitter has blocked Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's (Tenn.) Senate campaign announcement ad, ruling that a pro-life statement was "inflammatory."At one point in the video, Blackburn, who announced last week that she is running for the Senate in Tennessee, heralded how she "stopped the sale of baby body parts," a reference to her investigation into Planned Parenthood's reported practice of "donating" body parts in return for monetary compensation.But a Twitter representative told the Blackburn campaign that Twitter blocked the ad from being promoted, calling it "an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction," the Associated Press reported Monday. Twitter said...

    In three short weeks Breitbart News reporting drove two of the three leading establishment Republicans in Tennessee out of the state’s 2018 U.S. Senate race. First up was incumbent Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), who made a surprise announcement on September 26 he would not run for re-election, one day after a Breitbart News report about his sweetheart deal in an Alabama retail center development in which Alabama taxpayers are set to pay him more than $3 million over 20 years in sales tax incentive rebates. Though his announcement that he would not seek re-election was couched in terms that claimed...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) Announced on Tuesday that he will not seek re-election in 2018. The statement read as follows: After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018. When I ran for the Senate in 2006, I told people that I couldn’t imagine serving for more than two terms. Understandably, as we have gained influence, that decision has become more difficult. But I have always been drawn to the citizen legislator model,...

    Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) has drawn his first Republican challenger, days after allies of President Trump threatened to back a primary challenge in retribution for Corker's critical comments about Trump's ability to govern.   Andy Ogles, the head of the Tennessee chapter of the Charles and David Koch-funded conservative group Americans for Prosperity, kicked off his campaign Thursday. In a statement announcing his bid, Ogles blasted Republican senators for letting Trump down. "Republicans who promised to govern as conservatives if we would just ‘give them a majority’ are letting us down the most, including our Senators from Tennessee," he said in...
  • Joe Carr may challenge Bob Corker in GOP primary for Senate seat in Tennessee

    Former state Rep. Joe Carr is laying the foundation to run against Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee in the Republican primary next year, accusing the incumbent of being too reluctant to back President Trump’s agenda. He’s formed a political action committee dubbed “Stand Firm America” that raised $500,000 over the last three weeks, in what Mr. Carr said is an early show of support. Mr. Carr becomes the latest insurgent hoping to use Mr. Trump as a cudgel in a Republican primary, making the president a critical dividing line within the GOP. “There is a great opportunity for someone like...

    I already alluded to this subject yesterday(60 seats). Flake has to go. All in for the M.D. who couldn't take out McLame? Corker would be tougher. Hatch should take himself out-old. Heller(Nev.) has incumbency. I say take out Flake find a real conservative in Utah and the rest takes care of itself including the fire lit under asses. A national effort. Talk to me.

    Key Senate Republicans say they won't support a change to Senate rules that would allow President-elect Trump to quickly get his Supreme Court nominee confirmed, a sign that Trump may find it harder than he was hoping to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. . . . Republican Sens. Pat Roberts of Kansas, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have all said they would not support a change.

    Shelbyville Times Gazette: Corker returns to Haiti Tuesday, October 30, 2007 By John I. Carney U.S. Sen. Bob Corker credits a church mission trip to Haiti a quarter of a century ago with leading him towards public service, and so he says his return trip there last week was not only informative but meaningful. Corker, a Republican and former mayor of Chattanooga, was involved in the real estate and construction businesses before entering politics. He went on a mission trip with First Centenary Methodist to Haiti, generally acknowledged to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, to build an...

    It goes without saying that Senator Jeff Sessions is popular with a huge number of Americans. It is also true that Joni Ernst, a war veteran, is a rising star in Republican ranks. Either would make wonderful Vice Presidents for different reasons. However, the trade-off is unacceptable. In the case of Ernst, she is sitting as senator in Iowa, at best a purple state. There is absolutely no guarantee that her seat would be won by a Republican. Why is that so crucial? The Republican majority in the Senate is only 4 senators. And this year the Republicans have 24...

    Sen. Marco Rubio is facing intense pressure to run for re-election to his Florida Senate seat, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell taking the lead in a campaign to get him to reconsider his plans to retire. Republicans fear that if Rubio doesn’t run for a second term they could lose his seat. And if Republicans lose Florida they increase their odds of losing their Senate majority altogether. […] At least one Republican, Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, subsequently took the unusual step of issuing a public statement calling Rubio a “very valuable member of the Senate” and disclosing that...

    Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was labeled by Charles Krauthammer on Friday as the pundit’s leading pick to be the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, said Corker will be meeting Monday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Krauthammer used a hypothetical pot of $100 in casino chips to make his point, putting $25 on Corker, $20 on former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., $20 on Ohio Gov. John Kasich, $10 on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and $5 on Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint. The rest went to “the field,”...
