  • N.C.A.A.: North Carolina Will Not Be Punished for Academic Scandal

    But North Carolina don’t you dare pass a transgender bill then we’ll punish you.

  • Trump, McConnell set for tense talks at Monday meeting

    “The question isn’t, who isn’t a solidly pro-Trump senator. It’s who actually scuttled repeal and replace. And that’s McConnel with his feckless “leadership,” McCain, Murkowski and Collins. And for the time being, their presence will continue. That’s why I bring them up. So far, none of the distinguished gentlemen you mention have actively harmed MAGA, except for McCain, Collins and Murkowski, and McConnel.”

    This time around. In 2020 when Murkowski, et al are running then those who passed safely this time around will cover for her then. They cover for each other — those who are running this time are covered by those not running because of short memories, momentum, etc. Ie Tillis and co. will cover for McCain, Collins, etc. So yes Flake voted to repeal and replace but he and others like him know they had the three you mentioned to cover for them. In another year Flake would’ve voted to not repeal and replace and your mentioned three would’ve voted to R&R if they were up for re-election that year.

    However fair enough on the rest of your points. Don’t get me wrong of course McConnell is a huge part of the problem but even at 60 if he still has over 30 rino’s (which you would probably have now) still willing to vote for him as leader he would still probably be leader. Look at the dems they STILL vote for Pelosi and probably would’ve Reid if he hadn’t retired.

    Not sure why it would be fratricide? Are we really that worried that if a rino lost a primary in deep red states like MS, AL, TN, AK, TX, etc. that the gop would not then win that seat because the rino isn’t in there? If so then the gop doesn’t deserve to be the majority party anyway because it would be very plain they could do nothing to advance the MAGA agenda.

    “You can primary Murkowski and Collins ‘til your blue in the face. They’ll coast to victory and pay it no mind.”

    Not worried for now about them since not till 2020 and 2022 so why bring them up?

    “So the Senate remains RINO infested, whatever Bannon does, at least for the foreseeable future,”

    — Really? Two are already out before we’ve really even started primary season (Strange and Corker). So you really think Wicker, Flake, Heller maybe even Fishcher, Barrasso and Hatch are completely safe in this environment? McConnell is meeting with Trump today. He wouldn’t be doing that just for manners.

    “although Bannon could take down a few vulnerable Democrats. That would sure be nice, and wouldn’t involve internecine blood letting, either.”

    —Agreed. If not Kid Rock in MI then Lena Epstein is strong there as well. Love to see Heitkamp and Tester as well. Such liars they are. Classic mountain west democrats. Talk the good game back home then vote with Pelosi and Schumer in D.C.

    “RINOs become irrelevant once you have a big enough majority.”

    -At what level of majority? Even if we had the mighty 60 seats (then McConnell would just say we needed to have 70 for “strong consensus/bipartisanship and all that BS”) it still may not be enough. Think about it — let’s pretend we replaced 8 democrats next year with 8 hard core conservatives but none of the current RINO’s were replaced (leave Corker in there for purposes of this exercise). So now let’s subtract from that pretend number of 60 the number of RINO’s who could still scuttle MAGA bills coming out of their chamber:

    Richard Shelby, Murkowski, Sullivan, McCain, Flake, John Boozman, Cory Gardner, Rubio, Isakson, Crapo, Collins, Cochran, Wicker, Blunt, maybe Steve Daines, maybe Fischer, Sasse, Heller, Tillis, Hoeven, Portman, maybe Toomey, Graham, Thune, Alexander, Cornyn, and Capito (won’t count WY Barrasso and Enzi becauce 50/50 on them). Then add on McConnell who’s the leader of it all so not counting the maybes that’s still 25 rino’s that could easily derail MAGA even with a solid 60 seat majority.

    So no must disagree that having a large enough majority will neutralize the rino’s. The rino’s must be purged from the Senate/gop even if it means internecine warfare as unpleasant as that may seem.

    “Let them. it just demonstrates how out of touch they are. President Trump will be delighted to work with Senator Roy Moore. He did his duty by showing loyalty to Luther Strange.

    The Lamestream Media can spin this all they want. In reality, they’re terrified about these primary challenges. It doesn’t bode well for Establishment Democrats or GOPe, and their propaganda is as transparent as it gets...”

    Thank you.

    For those worried about the media’s spin on this does anyone on this board honestly think that if Strange had won that they would be giving ANY credit or positive review of Trump’s endorsement for Strange?

    Neither do I.

    The stories are pre-written. One for one either candidate winning and the spin that comes with that but either one prepared to put Trump and the gop in the worst possible light.

    Oh look another WaPo story that no matter what happens it’s always bad for the gop.

    Rest assured that if Strange won Costa had an article ready in his drawer stating how this is bad for the gop because the Bannon wing of the party that gave the gop so much momentum has now been defeated/neutralized or....whatever other narrative he would come up with that casts the gop in the worst possible light.

    “Trump doesn’t want him, he’s just playing the game. I am sure Trump will welcome with open arms Moore when he is elected.”

    I thought this at first and still do. However it does beg the question that Trump doesn’t seem to playing the same game with Flake as with Strange. Trump has pretty much made it clear that he will work against Flake but so far has taken a different approach with Strange.

    I think it may be because Strange has not been as (though some) personally and vocally hostile to Trump as Flake?

    Not saying this one seat is important. Just saying look at the trend....

    But also three other seats in OK and two in NH since last November.

    I’m not saying the sky is falling we just can’t dismiss it either and get the gop off its’ arse.

    “This article is akin to saying, the Dems have outscored the Republicans 6-0 . . . in the fourth quarter. Of course, the score is 156-6 but only the fourth quarter counts.”

    I take your point but I just want to be sure we have 156 points. I’m not saying we’re going to lose or anything like that I just want to get a handle on things early on before hubris gets us like it did demorats in 2016.

    “How many congressional seats have we won? Those are quite a bit more important than state legislature seats.”

    Yours and other comments make me feel better. Also I know GOP registration numbers are making good to large net gains in all but I believe two swing states but....

    didn’t the dems’ downfall start at the state level?

    I mean we haven’t won one state seat this year.

    I'm not usually a concern troll but this trend doesn't look good. I still think Trump is fine but maybe backlash against GOP? I know post is from CNN but couldn't find any conservative sites discussing these special elections only lefties like HuffPo.

    “No, it’s your problem. Conservatives have “followed our principles” since Reagan. THIRTY YEARS. And what have we got to show for it? NOTHING. If POTUS has to do deals with Dems to get the GOP onside then so be it. Sniping at him from the right instead of focusing your fire on the useless Congress only helps Dems. Not that fake conservatives would care about that.”

    BINGO!!!!!!

    “This has reached the absurd.”

    Yes it has but is actually great news. One thing conservatives/us on the right have never done is use the left’s tendency for never stop moving forward against them. Most think just appease and they’ll stop but the problem is the left never stops they just keep on going. It’s about time this stubborness is used against them.

    Much like the left voting to filibuster Gorsuch and never knowing when to quit pushing so now allowing simple majority for Trump’s judges, this latest episode demonstrates the left’s absurdity in one simple example that a thousand articles/tweets/videos never could.

    This clip made my day. It restored my faith in humanity more than anything I’ve seen in a while.”

    That was ONE of the reasons I posted.

    Also other Trump supporters need to know that we all see what’s happening now and need to stand strong with him and each other and not feel isolated the way the media tries to make us feel.

    Yes and I believe it helps more than hurts. I know it was very uplifitng to see three voters of “leftist approved groups” having supported and still now STRONGLY support Trump.

    This has to be intentional. As others have said he probably is getting ready to switch parties.

    Yet one more example on how Trump has flushed out the Uniparty wing of the gop.
