    George Conway, cofounder of the Never Trump Lincoln Project, and Kurt Bardella, a former senior adviser to the embattled organization, have publicly called to shut down the operation because of continued fallout over allegations of cofounder John Weaver preying upon young men, including minors, and subsequent reports that some of the super PAC’s leaders knew of the allegations as early as March 2020.

    Black Americans attend church more regularly than Americans overall, and pray more often. Most attend churches that are predominantly black, yet many would like those congregations to become racially diverse. There is broad respect for black churches’ historical role in seeking racial equality, coupled with a widespread perception they have lost influence in recent decades. Those are among the key findings in a comprehensive report released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center, which surveyed 8,660 black adults across the United States about their religious experiences. It is Pew’s first large-scale survey on the topic. Among black adults who go to...

  • Anti-Trump Lincoln Project Caught Funneling $45 MILLION In Donations Into Their Own Pockets

    02/16/2021 1:27:12 PM PST · by A.M. Smith · 21 replies
    The dust hasn’t even settled on the news that one of their founders was a pedophile, now the Lincoln Project is under intense scrutiny after a records review revealed that the group funneled millions of their donations into companies owned by it’s founders. Out of roughly $90 million the anti-Trump Lincoln Project has raised, more than half has gone to firms run by the group’s founders, according to open records data reviewed by Fox Business. Campaign records show that approximately one-third of the money raised by the super PAC, close to $27 million, paid for advertising campaigns that aired during...
  • As 2022 Campaign Begins, GOP Voters Sour on Senate Republicans

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) saw the largest decline in his approval rating among GOP voters, dipping 29 points, to 41%. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), who is up for re-election next year, saw his approval rating fall 16 points among Republican voters, and just 22% are “strongly” in his corner. Intraparty declines for retiring Pennsylvania, Ohio senators illustrate the challenges of simultaneously satisfying both the base and the broader electorate in the Trump era ahead of contested primaries. “You cannot say, ‘Trump voters, come out and vote and support us’ while saying ‘Trump’s a horrible person,’” said Shermichael Singleton,...

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday that President Joe Biden has not ruled out using executive orders for gun control.When asked if Biden still intended to use executive action on gun control – a vow made during his campaign – Psaki responded, “The president has a range of actions at his disposal … he hasn’t ruled out either of those options.”Biden’s campaign website boasted about his record working with legislative and executive actions during the Obama administration, pointing to “two dozen actions” the administration took after Biden was tasked with heading gun control measures.Biden’s campaign website...

    For almost a year, the central policy debate in most Western countries has been whether—and for how long—to impose lockdowns. Advocates of stringent lockdowns argue that measures such as stay-at-home orders and forced closures of businesses are necessary to save lives and prevent health-care systems from being overwhelmed. So-called “lockdown sceptics,” on the other hand, argue either that such measures are ineffective, or that their benefits are outweighed by the associated social and economic costs; and that a focussed protection strategy is preferable. (The term “lockdown,” as I am using it, does not encompass all non-pharmaceutical interventions. In particular, I...

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the federal government is launching the long-promised buyback program for what he has described as “assault” or “assault-style” firearms. The buyback program is part of a suite of new gun control measures promised by the federal Liberals in the 2019 election campaign, and follows the announcement of an executive order last May that changed the classification listings to prohibit roughly 1,500 “assault-style” weapons. While terms like “assault-style” and “assault rifle” are not legal classifications in Canada, they are frequently used colloquially by gun control advocates and the government to describe the type of high-capacity, quick-fire...

    Britt Reid is alleged to have caused the three-car pile-up and is being investigated by cops for possible driving under the influence after admitting to drinking prior to the smash. The 35-year-old linebackers coach for the NFL giants suffered minor injuries during the February 4 crash. Reid's pickup smashed into two stationary cars, injuring two children aged four and five, cops in Kansas say. The girl who was seriously injured, identified as Ariel, has now woken up from a coma, according to an update to a GoFundMe page posted by her aunt, Tiffany Verhulst. "Ariel is awake," said Verhulst.

    In Ireland, the 99-year-old Mother Superior lay quietly. She was dying. The Nuns had gathered around her bed, laying garlands around her and trying to make her last journey comfortable. They wanted to give her warm milk to drink but she declined. One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. Then, remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey that had been received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened it and poured a generous amount into the warm milk. Back at Mother Superior's bed, they lifted her head gently and held the glass to her lips. The...

    Tuesday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough addressed the comparisons of violent Black Lives Matter protests to last month’s riot at the U.S. Capitol by a group supporting former President Donald Trump. Scarborough said anybody making the argument that the examples are similar “have to be really stupid.” He argued that “taco stands” are vastly different than the “insurrection” at the Capitol.
  • Republicans eye courtroom playbook California used to stymie Trump agenda

    After Democrats succeeded in unraveling much of the Trump agenda through a California-led deluge of lawsuits, they now face a sobering reality: Their courtroom playbook is about to be turned against them. Republican attorneys general are angling to retaliate with equal force, further pushing the boundaries of an elected position that not long ago was among the most apolitical in state government. Texas already took the lead in filing the first big lawsuit, which challenges Biden’s pause on deportations. More than a dozen GOP attorneys general warned last week they are preparing to sue the Biden administration to force approval...

    Somebody definitely saw it coming and tried to sound the warning. In 2018/19 The city council of Round Rock committed the entire city to "alternative" energy and nearly drove all residents away with the high electricity costs. Here's the article: Wherever you go in rural Texas today, you are likely to run across a new wind farm or solar farm being constructed. And why wouldn’t they be? Taxpayers and consumers are currently paying more than $2 billion annually to renewable energy companies operating in Texas. And with the threat that eligibility for the biggest renewable subsidy, the federal Production Tax...

    Republican leader Mitch McConnell trashed President Trump following his second acquittal Saturday by the US Senate. McConnell brutally trashed President Trump following his acquittal. McConnell and the GOP elites (GOPe) worked against President Trump for years preventing him from passing his wildly popular agenda to protect America, its workers, and its citizens. As reported earlier, McConnell did not hold back as he ripped Trump apart for a “disgraceful dereliction of duty” and attempting to “overturn the election.” He claimed that the protesters stormed the Capitol because they had been “fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on earth,” and...

    Now, before we dive into things, there are more than a few presidents who won’t be making an appearance because they either never had a drink or resisted the urge to imbibe until they left office. The Sober Collective includes Abraham Lincoln (big water guy,) noted Diet Coke enthusiasts Donald Trump and George W. Bush, Benjamin Harrison (a teetotaler with a thing for tea,) as well noted ice cream aficionado Joe Biden We’re also excluding Jimmy Carter, who occasionally had a sip of white wine when partaking in a toast but who had all liquor removed from the White House...

    It was the elephant in the Oval Office, but somehow, President Biden and Gov. Andrew Cuomo didn’t discuss his COVID-19 nursing home scandal when they met last week. The controversy “was not a focus of their conversation or a topic,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during her daily briefing Tuesday.

    Unlike his most recent predecessors -- night owls who spent the dark hours reading briefing materials (President Barack Obama) or watching television (President Donald Trump) -- Biden is more of an early-to-bed type. He has continued a tradition of reading letters from Americans, a handful of which are tucked into the briefing materials he brings home in the evenings. Recently they have focused on the pandemic; Biden has also spoken by video conference with business owners and laid-off workers weathering the economic crisis. -snip And he hasn't been put off by the pack of reporters who track his every move....

    Black history has always been marked by spirited debates and ideological diversity In all of the Black history tributes on TV commercials and social media this month, you will be hard-pressed to find one that features a single Black conservative leader. Cancel culture warriors routinely exclude legends like Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice from history just because of their political views. Yet, it’s clear that many of the same people who seek to cancel conservative icons lack even a basic understanding of American history. For example, San Francisco...
