    ...The Republican Party once was the party of conservatives. It still is the only place any conservative can be elected in today’s political world. So far. Unfortunately, the party of Reagan has disappeared. Trump did not make them disappear, but his improbable run, and win, has revealed who the party really is. And it ain’t pretty. It’s been apparent for a while that they are the stupid party. But I never thought they were this stupid. It’s been apparent for a long time they had Stockholm Syndrome. Captured by the left, they have been cowed into being spineless mushes afraid...

    Having refused to repeal Obamacare, the Republican Party is dead, as was the Whig Party in 1854 after it colluded in the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act which opened these territories to slavery. Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress as well as control of legislatures and governorships in 26 states veil the fact that, in 2017, there are no longer reasons to vote Republican any more than there were to vote Whig after 1854. The Republican Party’s successes in recent electoral cycles were due to the American people’s desire not to be governed by a ruling class, headed by...

    The congressional calendar is jammed. There are serious doubts that there's room for all the legislation that's lined up waiting for a vote. ... There are just 12 days before the end of September, when the House and Senate are in session together. In those 12 days, Congress has to pass a budget and a debt ceiling extension. That's surely very difficult. Now throw in the Republican Party walking away from the Republican president. That is what's happening. And the chances of getting a budget, debt ceiling, health care, tax cuts and infrastructure done this year are surely slim and...

    ‘Repeal and Replace Obamacare’ never stood a chance of getting past Mitch "The Blocker" McConnell and is probably doomed this fall in spite of any further praiseworthy Trumpian efforts to help America's middle class escape a law which destroys our health and drains our bank accounts. After all, the Senate Majority Leader has some very close ties to special interest healthcare dollars. Add to that the fact that his wife, new US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao McConnell, “…received $50,000 in 2015 for a five-minute speech to the political wing of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, previously called a cult-like terrorist group" by the...
  • Is JEFF FLAKE Planning to Switch to the DemocRAT Party? VANITY

    Self ^ | Self - Vanity
    Is anyone else beginning to get an uneasy feeling that Arizona Senator Jeff Flake if planning to switch parties? I think there must be something more that his dismal showing in favorability polls to explain his recent extreme anti-Trump and anti-GOP remarks and actions. And I don't think his stupid book explains his actions either. If he is thinking of switching, do you think he might have two other Republican (RINO) Senators who would simultaneously defect to give Schumer control of the Senate? Hopefully, time will show this was needless worries. But I don't know -- the antiTrumpers have been...

    Republican donor from Virginia Beach sues GOP, accusing the party of fraud over failed Obamacare repeal.( Full title) .. A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn't repeal the Affordable Care Act he's suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering. Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren't going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare. The GOP "has been engaged...

    (Washington, D.C.) – Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) named former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) its July 2017 Porker of the Month for advocating for taxpayer-funded housing for members of Congress.During an interview with The Hill on June 26, 2017, then-Rep. Chaffetz said, “I really do believe Congress would be much better served if there was a housing allowance for members of Congress.” He admitted that the current political climate made such a proposal legislatively arduous, but claimed that, “A $2,500 housing allowance would be appropriate and a real help to have at least a decent quality of life in...

    Our federal government is no longer workable. The Congress, Senate & House are filled with political cronies, full of themselves with ego, greed, power, ill will, hate, envy and little concern or care for the average American or, fact, the country itself. Come the 2018 Mid Term Elections, the American voter, less the cheating Democrat fraud and illegal voters, should dispatch both Democrats and Republican Establishment types to an acid filled cesspool where they all belong. Make America Free Again. Politically destroy the entire Democrat Party which, by the way, is lost at sea and is as crooked as Al...

    Liz Matory is living proof that you can overcome a lifetime of Left-wing indoctrination. "Sidwell hid me from the 'real world' in many ways, but I love Sidwell Friends," the once and future congressional candidate writes of that Washington, D. C. institution in her autobiographical first book, Born Again Republican. "We had environmental science as a mandatory class in middle school." "We studied Latin American History a year before we studied U. S. History. I think our school had one of the earliest Chinese language classes in the region, which was phenomenal."

    What do you do when you realize you may be too conservative to be a libertarian? Austin Petersen, best known for running for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination in 2016, is giving the Republican Party a try. Advocating “pro-life and pro-Constitution” values, Petersen is challenging incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri for the 2018 midterm elections. His decision came after thousands of phone calls reaching out directly to his supporters, who overwhelmingly urged him to run as a Republican, Petersen explained on Wednesday’s “Pat & Stu.” “I decided to take their advice because they’re the ones who are putting all...

    Pollsters had major trouble spotting the surge of support for Corey Stewart in Virginia’s Republican governor’s primary this week, suggesting they still can’t figure out how to successfully survey Trump supporters. Mr. Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors and onetime Trump campaign chairman in Virginia, ran as the Trump figure in the race, pursuing an anti-establishment message that centered around a tough approach to illegal immigration. Polling — which was strikingly infrequent — showed Mr. Stewart failing to crack 20 percent support, trailing Ed Gillespie, the putative front-runner, by as much as 27 percent. In the...

    Hollywood has issued dire predictions and hysterical warnings about Donald Trump ever since the Republican businessman first announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015. But the level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin’s now-famous shock “beheading” photograph to Shakespeare in the Park’s not-at-all-subtle “assassination” of Trump on a stage in New York City’s Central Park. Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP...

    The Republicans continue to block the Trump agenda. So called Republicans such as McCain, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and others have views that are not much different than the obstructionist progressive/socialist that are the majority force of the Democrats today. The GOPe is nothing more than an arm of the Soros globalist minions. In the past as now, the globalists want to do away with private property and have our laws dictated to us by the executive orders of those that they wish to see in power. The leadership of the Republican party in both the Senate and the house...

    OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Kansas was at the heart of the tea party revolution, a red state where, six years ago, a deeply conservative group of Republicans took the state for a hard right turn. Now, after their policies failed to produce the results GOP politicians promised, the state has become host to another revolution: a resurgence of moderate Republicans. Moderate Republicans joined with Democrats this week to raise state taxes, overriding GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s veto and repudiating the conservative governor’s platform of ongoing tax cuts. The vote was a demonstration of the moderates’ newfound clout in the state...
