  • Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders (just a reminder)

    05/04/2021 5:14:35 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 21 replies ^ | 2010 | Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy
    Make no mistake: Congressmen Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy are proud Republicans. But they believe the party had lost sight of the ideals it believes in, like economic freedom, limited government, the sanctity of life, and putting families first. This isn’t your grandfather’s Republican party. These Young Guns of the House GOP—Cantor (the leader), Ryan (the thinker), and McCarthy (the strategist)—are ready to take their belief in the principles that have made America great and translate it into solutions that will make the future even better, solutions that will create private sector jobs, maximize individual freedom, and establish...

    The president is planning a multi-trillion effort to fix America’s infrastructure and kickstart the economy. But can he get Republicans on board? Joe Biden came to power promising a New Deal-like economic agenda that would not only combat the Covid-19 pandemic, which has now claimed more than half a million lives in the US and caused unemployment not seen since the Great Depression, but also confront the deep-rooted disparities it has exposed.

    Axios ^ | 1/1/2021 | Mike Allen
    It took four years and an election defeat. But someone with real power inside the Republican Party is standing up to — and swatting back — President Trump: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Why it matters: This is a preview of the power struggle that will define the Republican Party in 2021. You saw this with McConnell acknowledging Joe Biden as President-elect. You saw this with McConnell blocking Trump's push to raise stimulus checks to $2,000, which would have split Senate Republicans. And you're seeing it now with his effort to curtail futile resistance by the GOP to congressional certification...

  • Arizona Supreme Court unanimously affirms Biden's win in state

    The Arizona Supreme Court late Tuesday threw out the bid by the head of the state Republican Party to void the results of the presidential race. In a unanimous ruling, the justices said that party Chairwoman Kelli Ward failed to present any evidence of misconduct or illegal votes in the tally that found Joe Biden outpolled President Trump in Arizona. Chief Justice Robert Brutinel, writing for the court, said Ward, who has the burden of proof when challenging an election, provided no evidence that the electors pledged to Trump got more votes than those pledged to Biden, “let alone (to)...

    My fellow Americans. Yesterday, we once again proved that democracy is the heartbeat of this nation. Just as it has been the heartbeat of this nation for two centuries. Even in the face of a pandemic, more Americans voted this election than ever before in American history. Over 150 million people cast their votes. I think that is just extraordinary. If we had any doubts, we shouldn’t any longer: Government of, by, and for the people is very much alive - very much alive in America. Here, the people rule. Power can’t be taken or asserted. It flows from the...

    Huddled with aides in the West Wing last week, his eyes fixed on Fox News, Trump wasn’t talking about how he had led the nation through the deadliest pandemic in a century. In a conversation overheard by an Associated Press reporter, Trump was describing how he’d just publicly rebuked one of his top scientists — Dr. Robert Redfield, a virologist and head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Redfield had angered the president by asserting that a COVID-19 vaccine wouldn’t be widely available to the general public until summer or fall of 2021. So hours later, with...

The Chicago Community Bond Fund also paid $5,000 in February 2019 to bail out Izarious Cannon, who had allegedly stuck a gun in the face of a...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey headlined Brooklyn’s Barclays Center like an A-list duo Saturday, getting a rock-star like applause from a feverish audience of fans on a stage typically reserved for pop, rap and basketball stars.

    2020 candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has issued a stunning warning to President Trump that seems to echo controversial recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying her Justice Department would likely charge him with obstruction of justice if she wins the White House. Harris, in a newly released interview, said she believes the only reason former Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not recommend prosecuting Trump was because of the Justice Department’s policy against indicting a sitting president. Once out of office, Trump would be subject to charges -- and Harris was emphatic in saying the DOJ should pursue them....
