  • Republican Party is walking away from the GOP president: Stuart Varney

    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...

    Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney argued violent leftists were morally righteous. “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday night. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio took a similar tone in assigning “100% to blame” for the Charlottesville violence on white supremacists — which amounts to a total exculpation of antifa. Rubio also tweeted out a poorly-worded statement that may have explicitly endorsed left-wing violence: “When entire movement built on anger & hatred towards people different than you,it justifies & ultimately leads to violence against them,” the senator...

    McMaster’s character has come under attack recently from various online personalities and outlets aligned with the so-called “alt-right,” a movement of misogynists and white supremacists birthed in online message boards like 4chan. “I have had the pleasure of knowing General H.R. McMaster for many years, and greatly respect and admire his outstanding service to the nation,” McCain said in a statement. “The recent attacks upon him from the so-called ‘alt-right’ are disgraceful." “I hope the President will once again stand up for his national security adviser and denounce these repugnant attacks, which arise from the same purveyors of hatred and...

    The Daily Caller reported: Dr. Kelli Ward, who unsuccessfully challenged Sen. John McCain in the 2016 primaries, is now taking on Sen. Jeff Flake in the 2018 Arizona Senate primary. “I, as well as others, are frustrated with Senator Flake’s weak style,” Ward told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview Thursday. “He hasn’t accomplished a thing in D.C., and his values do not align with the people of Arizona.” Ward is bringing on two political operatives with ties to the president, Eric Beach and Brent Lowder. The two men will serve as general consultants for the campaign, TheDCNF...

    American Thinker ^ | August 10,2017 | Blain Winship
    The 2016 election cycle was a watershed event that is acutely misunderstood by the RINOs in Washington. To them, Donald Trump’s victory is an anomaly to be dismissed as a “populist” overreaction to the voters’ frustration with the status quo ante left by Obama. But most of the anger exhibited by Trump’s supporters was grounded in valid concerns over the perpetually dismal economy, lack of job prospects for Americans, unprecedented spiraling of the federal debt, falling middle class living standards, soaring healthcare costs, reduction in business startups, and uncontrolled illegal immigration (not to mention the worsening race relations and America’s...

    We hoped they would go away after the election. We hoped they would stop their whining and grandstanding once Donald Trump took office. We hoped they would accept defeat and embrace our Republican president, that they would hold him accountable regarding policy and support any effort to right the ship that has been lurching toward the brink for decades.

    Subsidizing Failure: For seven years Republicans have solemnly promised to abolish the financially crumbling ObamaCare law. But now that they have struck out, many in the GOP are working behind closed doors to bail out the very program they say they hate. If they moderate wing of the party prevails and rescues the ObamaCare entitlement, the law will be permanently enshrined into the federal budget only to eat up more tax dollars year after year. What is worse, the deal the Republican surrender caucus is negotiating does almost nothing to actually roll back ObamaCare, provide consumers with more choices, or...

    Exclusive: Mychal Massie warns Repubs of retribution for betraying voters, president! That there is a mélange of Erebusic marplots committed to preventing President Trump from accomplishing his agenda and also preventing him from keeping his promises to We the People cannot be denied. There was a time when it was inconceivable that politicians from a president’s own party would work so aggressively to undermine his agenda and sabotage his presidency – but that is exactly what Republicans are doing to President Trump. They are resisting his agenda and strenuously working to make sure his presidency fails. That leads me to...

    CNN Politics ^ | August 7, 2017 | Chris Cillizza, Editor-at-large
    All the signs suggest that 2018 is going to be a very good year for Democrats. Midterm elections are historically terrible for the president's party. In 18 of the last 20 midterm elections, the president's party has lost seats. In those 18 elections, the average seat loss is 33. Those numbers are even more daunting for presidents under 50% job approval -- as Donald Trump is right now. Since 1946, the average seat loss in the House in that situation is 36 seats. But before Democrats get too delirious about the election to come, they should read this paragraph from...

    Associated Press ^ | Aug 5, 2017 4:54 PM EDT | Adam Beam
    A week after an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’d consider a bipartisan effort to continue payments to insurers to avert a costly rattling of health insurance markets. McConnell told reporters Saturday there is “still a chance” the Senate could revive the measure to repeal and replace “Obamacare,” but he acknowledged the window for that is rapidly closing. The Kentucky senator noted Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee is working on “some kind of bipartisan approach” that would involve subsidies for insurance companies. Alexander recently said he will work with the...

    I welcome input and thoughts. Trump seems to be facing opposition from DemonRats as well as sleaze like Flake and Heller... his reasonable immigration proposal apparently already has IDIOT Republicans speaking against it. RINOs are determined NOT to let Trump have a victory. So, perhaps Trump should govern as best he can with his pen and in the meantime begin to campaign against both Republican and DemonRats up for re-election next year. He has ample proof that more pro-Trump legislators are what is needed. Miserable liars like Heller, McCain, Murkowski, Collins, and of course EVERY DemonRat are stopping us from...

Privately, staff and members are more forthcoming. ... "We're horrified by the drama coming out of the White House," said a Republican senator who requested anonymity to comment frankly on the administration.

    Congressional Republicans moved on Tuesday to defuse President Trump’s threat to cut off critical payments to health insurance companies, maneuvering around the president toward bipartisan legislation to shore up insurance markets under the Affordable Care Act. Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the influential chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, announced that his panel would begin work in early September on legislation to “stabilize and strengthen the individual health insurance market” for 2018. He publicly urged Mr. Trump to continue making payments to health insurance companies to reimburse them for reducing the out-of-pocket medical expenses of low-income...

    The German Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries on Monday slammed the latest round of US sanctions against Russia as being “against international law.” The planned new US sanctions are set to hit German and European companies which have business interests in Russia. “We see that as being against international law, plain and simple,” Zypries, of the Social Democrats (SPD), told the Funke Mediengruppe. “The Americans can’t punish German companies because they have business interests in another country.” The Economy Minister said that she did not want this to be the start of a trade war with the US, but emphasized that...

    Maine’s Republican Sen. Susan Collins said that she would not be swayed by President Donald Trump’s apparent threats to pull the plug on key Obamacare funds, including subsidies for members of Congress and their staff. In a Sunday interview with Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Collins first said that even if Trump cut off Congress’ subsidies, it would not change her mind about opposing the health care repeal. Tapper then asked whether if cuts to cost sharing reduction payments, or CSRs, that the federal government provides for low-income people would affect her decision. “It would not affect...

    On Twitter I just did a thread about how a new party that would replace the Republicans might come into being. 1. I don't think this can happen by 2018. Not enough prep time. 2. It should not copy the Reform Party and try to start, de novo, all at once. 3. It needs to begin within the GOP but (unlike the Tea Party) ALWAYS with the intention of going solo. 4. A candidate in 2018, for example, would run as an R but affix an "AmericaFirst/MAGA" affiliation. Start getting the brand out. This is key to name recognition on...

    Why are Democrats protecting the Beltway smear-specialist firm Fusion GPS? Specifically, why are the party’s senators supporting Fusion chief Glenn Simpson in his refusal to say who paid to get that infamous President Trump-smearing “Russian dossier” drawn up? As The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly A. Strassel notes, Dem senators even passed on the chance to publicly question Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, rather than also expose Simpson to public questioning. Maybe Democrats simply didn’t want anything to mess up their “collusion” narrative. Or perhaps they fear their own party used Fusion to commission the hit. She’s...
