    Two-time Oscar nominee James Woods blasted congressional Republicans as “RINO wimps” over the just-passed $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill. “I never imagined I could loathe the @GOP more than the I loathe @TheDemocrats, but they got me with this suck-ass budget,” Woods tweeted to his 1.36 million followers, adding that he hopes “they get what they asked for in November. When will these RINO wimps stop sticking their asses in the air for the Democrats to violate?”

    Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” House Freedom Caucus vice chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) slammed GOP leadership for allowing what is predicted to be the passage of a $1.3 trillion spending bill that does not include many of the priorities on which Republicans, including President Donald Trump, campaigned. Jordan took issue mainly with the funding for Planned Parenthood, restrictions on guns and lack of border wall funding.
  • GOP Narrative on PA-18 Is Wrong

    03/21/2018 1:49:56 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 35 replies ^ | March 21, 2018 | Star Parker
    I'm perplexed why many in Republican circles are rationalizing and dismissing the gravity of the Democratic victory in the recent special election in Pennsylvania's 18th district. My sentiments are more with Newt Gingrich, who is cautioning Republicans to view this as a wake-up call to a possible disaster in the fall elections in which the Congress could flip to Democrat control. Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district is a poster child of Trump voters. As widely noted, Trump won this district by 20 points in 2016. The district's electorate is 94 percent white, compared with 70 percent nationwide. In 2016, Trump won...
  • Donald Trump to Republicans: We Have to Go ‘Further Right’ as Democrats Go Further Left

    President Donald Trump advised Congressional Republicans to move further to the right side of the political spectrum, noting that Democrats were moving further left. “They have gone so far left, we have to go a little bit further right,” Trump told Republicans and donors at the National Republican Congressional Committee fundraising dinner on Tuesday night. Trump remarked that Congressional Democrats were moving left on nearly every issue, just like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “These days, there’s no such thing as a Blue Dog Democrat, a Red State Democrat, or a Conservative Democrat because they are all Pelosi Democrats,” he said,...

    A curious thing happens when you look beyond the media elation over Democrat Conor Lamb's victory in House district PA-18, which was framed as a referendum on Donald Trump's presidency. Trump won the district by 20 points in the 2016 election, and Trump lent his support to Lamb's opponent, Rick Saccone. But Saccone was not a good candidate by many measures. Even before the election, it was public knowledge that he had been admonished by Republicans for a "sluggish campaign" and for failing to mobilize "any donor infrastructure." He was "panned as a deeply underwhelming candidate who leaned on the...
  • Republicans warn: Nancy Pelosi, taxes not enough to win midterms

    03/21/2018 6:39:09 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 33 replies
    Republicans are worried that touting this year's tax cut bill and tying Democrats to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., won't be enough to hold the House and Senate in the November midterms. While GOP lawmakers maintain that both are important campaign issue, some believe the party is leaning too heavily on them, particularly in light of some predictions that they are about to lose upwards of 45 House seats. Rep. Conor Lamb's, D-Pa., likely victory over Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania last Tuesday also showed both arguments can be neutralized. "I think the bigger challenge for members is defining themselves,"...
  • Here’s What a Modern Political Witch Hunt Looks Like

    You don’t have to go back to the 1600s and Salem, Massachusetts. Just look at what’s happening to Republican Governor Eric Greitens in the state of Missouri in 2018. A Democrat prosecutor in St. Louis, Kim Gardner, has indicted the sitting Republican Governor. It’s an astonishing case—and an abuse of the legal system unlike anything we’ve seen in recent memory. Here’s what we know: The prosecutor admitted in court that she brought the indictment without the evidence to win the case. In fact, in open court, she had to beg and plead with the judge for more time to gather...
  • The Note: In Pennsylvania’s special election, an expensive lesson for Republicans

    03/14/2018 5:15:12 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 35 replies
    More than $10 million, a visit by President Donald Trump, the mobilization of the GOP army … all to buy a tie? It’s not just any tie. Republicans fought to almost (but not quite) even in a district Trump carried by nearly 20 points in 2016, and where Democrats had stopped bothering to even field House candidates in recent cycles. Plus, the district won’t even exist this time next year. Whether Conor Lamb assumes a seat in Congress is almost secondary at this point. He already showed that that red can turn purple and purple can turn close to blue,...

    Gov. Bruce Rauner's local Republican organization will not endorse his re-election. The New Trier Township Republican Organization (NTRO) officially declined to endorse during a meeting on Saturday, just blocks from Rauner's home. "It is extraordinarily rare to fail to endorse an incumbent governor, let alone the incumbent's local organization." Rauner is facing a challenge from conservative reform State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton). Blair Garber said NTRO should back Rauner because "his money" can help Republicans re-claim control of the Illinois House from Democrats. "There's nobody who can do this but Bruce," he said. He's put in $100 million of his...

    ITTSBURGH — About four years after having to overcome negative ads from his own party to win a state Senate seat, Scott Wagner was first to speak at a major GOP committee dinner as the party's endorsed candidate for the state's highest office. Aboard a chartered plane from Harrisburg on his way to the Republican Committee for Allegheny County's annual Lincoln Day Dinner, Wagner said he started building relationships with Republicans statewide after his historic 2014 write-in campaign. The Spring Garden Township resident and owner of Penn Waste was forced to run as a write-in after the state party endorsed...

    Texas Primary Election being held today. Even though immensely popular, Republicans, Governor, Greg Abbot and Senator, Ted Cruz are running for re-election, both are heavily favored to defeat whatever and whoever the Democrat Party chooses to run against them. There has been much Media" ado about nothing, relative Democrat voter turnout in the early voting period. Republicans feel both Abbott & Cruz will win their primary runs, whether the voter turnout is heavy or light. However....the rest of this ballot should awaken Republicans, Conservatives, Independents, etc. to turn out in large number to build on "The Down Ballot". So...if you...

    In an interview with the New York Times, former Trump confidant and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie lashed out at unnamed people in the White House for trying to discredit Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president and Trump's former campaign manager. "She’s gotten a bad rap at times," Christie said, "but I think that’s because of some of the really awful people inside the White House who have been trying to hurt her, as opposed to anything the press came up with on its own." As The Hill points out, "Conway is one of the last major figures from the...

Many in Hollywood and the movie industry secretly support President Trump, Antonio Sabato Jr. divulged to WND, and they’re itching to take California back from the grips of socialist Democrats. In fact, behind the scenes, several Hollywood figures have expressed enthusiastic support for Sabato and his bid for Congress. “I can focus on the negative that is coming from Hollywood or focus on the positive:...

  • 120th House District Seat Goes Blue After 40 Years Of Republicans; Phil Young Wins Special Election

    02/28/2018 6:06:53 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 38 replies
    Bolstered by an energized base of grassroots activists, Connecticut Democrats on Tuesday picked up a seat in the state House of Representatives that’s been held by Republicans for more than 40 years. Democrat Phil Young, a former member of the town council, beat Republican Bill Cabral in the race to represent the 120th district, which includes most of Stratford. The seat was open because Republican state Rep. Laura Hoydick was elected mayor, resulting in her resignation from the House in early January. Nick Balletto, the chairman of the Connecticut Democratic party, called the win “historic” and said it signifies that...

    Okay—so the new ban on so-called assault weapons has been put forward and to no one’s surprise is pretty much a total gun ban. A massive slate of weapons are slated to be banned since the legislation calls for the prohibition of semi-automatic rifles and handguns that have detachable magazines, and can carry more than 10 rounds (via Washington Examiner) [emphasis mine: House Democrats have introduced a bill banning semi-automatic firearms in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., announced Monday he is introducing the Assault Weapons Ban of 2018....

    Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace has proven time and again to be one of MSNBC’s most outspoken Trump critics. But she outdid herself on Monday when she spent nearly the full hour mocking the President and trash talking Republicans, taking only the occasional break to report the news. The bloodbath began when Wallace mentioned the President’s proclivity for aggressive weekend Tweets. She characterized Trump’s behavior as “this releasing of pressure,” wherein he “rages away at Twitter in his jammies.” Continuing with her imaginative illustration, she inquired:

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said the Democratic opposition memo did not change the facts or change the outcome of the investigation’s finding his committee released in their own partisan memo several weeks ago. On Saturday the much anticipated Democratic memo written by ranking minority member of the committee Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, was released and surmised that former British spy “Christopher Steele’s raw intelligence reporting did not inform the FBI’s decision to initiate its counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016” among other assertions. The dossier played a significant role in the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign and...
