    It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election. However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot. In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018....

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | October 10, 2019 | Lacretia Wimbley
    Democratic state legislators urged Pittsburghers on Thursday to support a bill that would ban the use of some military-style rifles by everyone except service members and law enforcement personnel. The lawmakers also said hunters in Pennsylvania don’t need the added firepower of semiautomatic rifles, including AR-15-type weapons, even though the Legislature passed a law in 2017 allowing that. The weapons increasingly are being used in mass killings that are “traumatizing today’s children,” said state Rep. Ed Gainey, D-Lincoln-Lemington, at a gathering sponsored by House Democrats at the Carnegie Library in Homewood. He and others called for support of a bill...
  • ONE OF THE 'LARGEST RADICAL ANTI-GOV. GROUPS' IN U.S. WILL ESCORT GOP'ers AT TRUMP MINN. RALLY

    Newsweak ^ | 10/9/2019 | JESSICA KWONG
    Republicans at President Donald Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Thursday will reportedly be escorted by a typically heavily armed group that has been called "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today." That is how the Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Oath Keepers, who refer to themselves as "guardians of the republic." On the group's website, it describes itself as a "non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'" The Oath...

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 30, 2019 | Raynard Jackson
    Over the years, many prominent conservatives have asked me why blacks are not more involved in the Republican Party and the conservative movement. The answer is very simple: Conservatives have shown no demonstrable indication to the black community that we are welcomed by the party or the conservative movement. As a matter of fact, conservatives force “real” blacks to make a false choice: to be black or conservative, as though we can’t be both. Most blacks are conservative by nature and by upbringing. “Real” blacks don’t check their blackness at the door when they join a conservative group. We still...

    When the alarm went off at Jennifer Hrobuchak's work, the 22-year-old district manager didn't think twice. She got in her car in the early morning hours and headed off to the store to investigate. The new college graduate, who had hoped to have a career saving people from drugs, never saw the man run through the red light straight at her. At 82 miles per hour, he slammed Jennifer's car across the road into a building that crushed and killed her. After seven years of telling the story, her mom, Corinne, still gets emotional. And it's no wonder. The man...

    The media thought it had hit the jackpot on Friday. Here was a Republican Congressmen saying he supported an impeachment inquiry. Do you know what that means?BI-PARTISANSHIP!! The Holy Grail of impeachment!Rep. Mark Amodei of Nevada said on Friday, "I'm a big fan of oversight, so let's let the committees get to work and see where it goes," Amodei continued. "Using government agencies to, if it's proven, to put your finger on the scale of an election, I don't think that's right, If it turns out that it's something along those lines, then there's a problem."That, of course, is...

    The Sunday morning shows, along with all of the subsequent cable news coverage yesterday, were focused on the impeachment story. (There’s a surprise for you.) But one theme emerged that the media seems to be running with today. The thumbnail version is that the Republican Party and all of President Trump’s supporters are in some sort of “chaos” and they can’t decide how to push back against the Democrats on this.One good example showed up this morning in the Associated Press. “GOP Split Over Impeachment Pushback.” The president’s lawyer insists the real story is a debunked conspiracy theory.

    Former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake made a bold claim on Thursday when he said "at least 35" GOP senators would privately vote for President Trump's impeachment. Appearing at the 2019 Texas Tribune Festival, Flake, a frequent critic of the president, offered his own reaction and predicted that close to three dozen Republican senators would back impeachment. "I heard someone say if there were a private vote there would be 30 Republican votes. That's not true," Flake said during a Q&A. "There would be at least 35."

    Newsweek ^ | September 28, 2019 | Jennifer Doherty
    Former Senator Jeff Flake caused a stir Saturday when he amended Republican consultant Mike Murphy's comment that 30 GOP senators would vote to impeach President Donald Trump if they could keep their votes secret. "That's not true," the former Arizona senator said. "There would be at least 35." Until his retirement from the Senate earlier this year, Flake was among the small but notable cohort of Republican senators who remained vocal in their opposition to Trump after the election. While most of the Senate's 53 Republican members have stuck to the White House's talking points since the House of Representatives...

    Really not strange at all! *sigh* Trump seemly stands alone except for a small group of House and Senate allies in D.C. while everyone else is activity engaging in taking him down or passively giving lip-service of support while standing down with intent!!! It’s depressing that there is no great urgency in the GOP to fight the Dems and start calling people up that haven’t answered serious questions about who what when where and how in this attack on Trump. Maybe Barr is planning to take down the original core coup group and maybe he’s not but even if he...

    The open borders lobby, partially funded by billionaire George Soros, is supporting elected Democrats’ demands to impeach President Trump. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) leads Democrats’ efforts to impeach Trump over a phone conversation with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, open borders organizations like United We Dream are backing the plan. Online, United We Dream posted to their Twitter account that the impeachment of Trump is “the right thing to do,” writing further that their open borders activists are “with the millions of people telling the truth about Trump and the Members of Congress who have said enough is enough!”...

    Senate Republicans are vowing to quickly quash any articles of impeachment that pass the House and warn that Democrats will feel a political backlash if they go forward and impeach President Trump. Republican senators say there are no grounds to impeach Trump and are daring Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to embark on what they dismiss as a fool’s errand that will turn off swing voters. “My response to them is go hard or go home,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has jurisdiction over impeachment. “If you want to impeach him, stop talking....

    Republican Mark Finchem and Democrat Tom O’Halleran agree on at least one thing regarding Interstate 11. Both expect to be deceased before the proposed roadway becomes a reality. Finchem, a District 11 state representative spoke to Hidden Valley residents last week in a gathering attended by Blanca Varela, a representative from Congressman O’Halleran’s office, at Mountain View Community Church. The proposed interstate is a long-range goal of Arizona Department of Transportation and is expected to pass through Hidden Valley south of Maricopa. While Finchem has been outspoken against I-11, O’Halleran has remained neutral. Varela said the congressman had expressed to...

    Last week former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley broke the Republican cone of silence by tweeting, “This can’t continue…,” as the federal budget deficit raced past $1 trillion under President Trump. Fear of a larger jail-break from the cult of enforced silence among Republicans about Trump’s failures is the big reason the president’s campaign officials have pushed state party officials to cancel Republican presidential primaries in Arizona, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina. And that fear explains why the Republican National Committee is withholding polling data on the president from GOP candidates for state and local offices.

    American Thinker ^ | 09/13/2019 | Joshua Foxworth
    To date, five congressmen from Texas have resigned instead of seeking re-election in 2020. Their resignations signal two things from GOP leadership. The first is the realization that Texas is now lost. The second is that this loss is due entirely to the changing demographics resulting from legal and illegal immigration. The five congressmen that have resigned are Bill Flores (17th), Will Hurd (23rd), Pete Olson (22nd), Kenny Marchant (24th), and Mike Conaway (11th). Of these five, Congressman Conaway is unique in that his district will likely remain red for some time. He has not faced an opponent in numerous...

    In the swing state of North Carolina, it was happy-dance time for the beleaguered Republicans. Two hotly contested congressional races both went solidly into the GOP camp, helping the Republicans in the crazies-run House. State Sen. Dan Bishop won in the 9th district, and Greg Murphy won in the 3rd district and both will now get the opportunity to tell Reps. Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that they are out to lunch. It was a conservative blowout. Five thing stick out about it now:

He said this during a press conference in which he announced that he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a letter to Trump regarding gun control. Schumer continued: President Trump has an historic opportunity to save lives by indicating his support for the House-passed bill [H.R. 8]. Speaker Pelosi and I have repeatedly and personally asked him to do this.” … [President Trump] can lead his party to support something that the NRA has prevented Republicans from...
