    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) says that former President Trump is “winning” because so many Republicans “have remained silent.” In a video statement posted to Twitter, Kinzinger weighed in on the fate of the GOP after Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), who voted to impeach Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, announced that he would not be running for reelection next year. “A couple days ago, my friend Anthony Gonzales announced he won't run again, and now the pundits and politicos are discussing whether this means that Trump won,” Kinzinger said. “So, let me answer this question....

    This morning Romney was on with Jake Tapper on CNN and he looked so calm as he belittled and slandered President Trump and the 75 million + who voted for the President and his agenda of putting America first. In response to the ever gloomy Jake Tapper Romney said: TRENDING: President Trump Opens a Verified Account on RUMBLE -- Picks Up 45,000 New Followers in an Hour! “I think, frankly, Jake, a growing recognition in the U.S. this is like WWF.

    Donald Trump blamed Mike Pence in a Monday evening interview for his 2020 election loss and railed against two Supreme Court picks Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett for voting to uphold Obamacare. 'I am very disappointed. I fought very hard for them, but I was very disappointed with a number of their rulings,' Trump said in an interview with Real America's Voice host David Brody. He also claimed in the Monday interview that his former vice president should have done more to stop Congress certifying the Electoral College results on January 6. 'What's your take on Mike Pence and...

    Cohn then told Trump that he might have to leave his position, but no one in the room spoke up to support him, including then-Vice President Mike Pence, according to the book. After the meeting was over, Cohn went back to his office, and Pence appeared several minutes later, without Trump in the vicinity. "I'm proud of you," Pence told Cohn at the threshold of his office door, according to the book.

    Simon and Schuster CEO Jonathan Karp says he will continue with plans to publish a book by former Vice President Mike Pence despite an attempt by some employees to cancel it. Karp was responding to an online petition of employees and petitions on social media demanding that Simon and Schuster refuse to publish a sure-fire bestseller. The woke Democratic partisans didn’t mince any words in their denunciations of Pence. An online petition accused the company of “complicity in perpetuating white supremacy by publishing Mike Pence. The former vice president was accused of promoting policies that were “racist, sexist and discriminatory...

    It appears that some Republican lawmakers aren’t exactly exerting themselves to support Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) after the news broke that he is under investigation for allegedly sex trafficking and having inappropriate relations with a 17-year-old girl. Their reticence to speak on Gaetz’s behalf could indicate they are simply being cautious and waiting until all of the facts come out. But it seems more likely that their silence on the matter is motivated by the lawmaker’s staunch support for former President Donald Trump and his efforts against the GOP establishment.The Hill reported:Few of Gaetz’s GOP colleagues are coming to the...

    Amid a wave of resignations, onetime ambassador to Germany and acting director of national intelligence came to the defense of his former boss on Friday, arguing the "feeding frenzy" is mostly confined to Washington. Trump is being judged by the Washington establishment's standard of what makes a good politician, he told Neil Cavuto in a Fox Business interview, and Trump is not a politician. "I think there is a little bit of a feeding frenzy in Washington, and I just don't see it outside of Washington," he said. About a dozen top- or mid-level administration officials have resigned this week,...

    Top Senate Republicans are signaling support for keeping Director Gina Haspel atop the CIA amid speculation that President Trump could fire her out of frustration about some of her decisions related to the Russia investigation. Speculation about Haspel's future has reached a fever pitch amid concerns in Washington that the ousting of Defense Secretary Mark Esper could foretell a larger post-election shakeup. But top GOP senators are signaling that they don't think there's a reason for Trump to fire Haspel, outside of his own personal preference. "Not that I'm aware of, other than you know the president would want somebody...

Attorney General William Barr is reportedly in presidential disfavor, but a source said Trump has not made plans to replace him.
  • Reprobate Democrats and backstabbing Republicans Exclusive: Mychal Massie rips Mitch McConnell for not bringing Obama, Clinton et al. to account

    It's hard to find a lower species of life form today than Democrats holding political office. However, backstabbing, duplicitous Republicans will challenge the most reprobate Democrat any day of the week – and twice on Sunday when they're pretending to be the pious – for the title of "America's most undesirable." Democratic politicians are pernicious liars and godless mercenaries of Satan, but Republicans are no less pernicious and godless, in addition to being nauseatingly craven. It's not the Democrats who have sold patriots down the river; it's the plexus of contumacious Republicans who promise time after time to defend the...

    The Health and Human Services Department's watchdog will investigate the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak. A spokesperson for the HHS inspector general told the Washington Examiner that investigators will carry out at least five reviews “related to HHS’s planning and response of the COVID-19 outbreak.” The inquiries will scrutinize issues such as nationwide hospital responses, quarantine procedures, the training and protective gear provided to front-line health workers, nursing home standards amid a disease with an exponentially more deadly effect on the elderly and the already ill, and the ability to care for illegal border crossers and refugees during...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) turned down repeated requests from Bernie SandersÂ’ presidential campaign to appear at events promoting the Vermont senatorÂ’s candidacy in recent weeks, according to three people familiar with the discussions. After the Iowa caucuses, Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir asked Ocasio-Cortez to stump for Sanders in New Hampshire, according to the sources. The campaign prepared a model schedule to highlight the kind of popular support she would expect if she attended, one of the people familiar with the talks said. Ocasio-Cortez resisted the entreaties until a few days before the primary on Feb. 12. She ultimately spoke...

    Washington - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York, is calling on internal watchdogs from across the federal government to investigate "any and all instances of retaliation" against federal whistleblowers who have reported alleged misconduct by President Trump. Schumer's request to the nation's 74 inspectors general, who serve as the internal watchdogs of federal agencies, follows the removal of Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman from his job with the National Security Council. Vindman testified during the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump and participated in the July 25 phone call between the president and Ukrainian President Volodymyr...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton was advised to purge potentially biased holdovers from the Obama administration from the Trump White House, according to a top Republican in Congress. House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes said on Thursday that he warned Bolton, whom Democrats want to testify in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump, of an anti-Trump spying operation by members of the National Security Council. The California congressman also said he told H.R. McMaster, who preceded Bolton, and Robert O'Brien, the current national security adviser, to take steps to cull what he called a "den of thieves."...

    How imbecilic are those Republicans trying to make a name for themselves by supporting the unconstitutional Schiff/Pelosi articles of impeachment? Beyond polite description. Susan Collins, Rob Portman, probably the self-serving Mitt Romney, are each trying to be the biggest monkey wrenches in an already ridiculous endeavor to remove President Trump from office. Each of them should just admit they are Democrats at heart and switch parties. How else to explain their betrayal of their own party? Poor judgment is one thing, like Matt Gaetz voting for Pelosi's meaningless resolution to limit Trump's ability to counteract Iran. That was just dumb,...
