  • Sasse marches to own tune as GOP implodes around him: If there's a model for how to successfully build a conservative GOP out of Trump's shadow, it might as well be the Nebraska Republican.

    Ben Sasse is about to be censured by the Nebraska GOP for his antagonistic stance toward Donald Trump — again. But he doesn't care. As Sasse's fellow Republican critics of Trump fret over blowback from a base that demands loyalty to the ex-president, the senator isn't even trying to dissuade those seeking to punish him. Sasse conceded in an interview: “I assume I'm going to be censured on Saturday, but I haven't spent any time to talk anybody out of it.”
  • Sasse: GOP in a battle between 'conservatism and short-term-ism'

    Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse (R), who voted to convict former President Trump earlier this month in the Senate impeachment trial, warned that the Republican Party is in an internal battle between "conservatism and short-term-ism." Sasse noted in an interview with NPR released Tuesday that “obviously there are a lot of people frustrated with me in Nebraska,” but he added that “a lot of them also have the six-and-a-half year history with me where they know that though I'm a very conservative guy, I'm pretty independent-minded." "I don't think they're very surprised, but obviously there is a move at county and...
  • Unearthed tweets show Jamie Raskin, Joe Biden saying ‘fight like hell’

    New York Post ^ | FEBRUARY 10, 2021 | BRUCE GOLDING
    Republicans on Wednesday dug up past instances of Democratic House impeachment managers and President Biden using the words “fight” or “fight like hell” — one of the key allegations against former President Donald Trump at his Senate trial. The Save America PAC’s “Trump War Room” tweeted a “FLASHBACK” screenshot of lead House manager Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) invoking the notion of combat to block Republican efforts to swiftly replace the late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death in September. “The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, women’s health care...

    Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said on “Fox News Sunday” that new faces of the Republican Party have the potential to flourish now that former President Trump is out of office. He named Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska as potential spokespeople. “So there will be some new faces,” Mr. Romney said. “President Trump, of course, will continue to have influence, but I think our party is going to return to some of our more fundamental principles, which is fiscal responsibility, believing in the importance of character,...

    Noisy Room ^ | January 4, 2020 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) is one of those people who thinks they are the smartest person in the room, which is usually true in their case until someone else enters. As our Constitutional Republic disintegrates under the weight of a corrupted electoral process, he would split constitutional hairs to allow others, including SCOTUS of the empty-robed Chief Justice John Roberts, to shred and ignore the U.S. and state constitutions, to steal the 2020 presidential election from Donald J. Trump in the biggest crime spree in history. Sen. Sasse is an ignorant coward, the Sgt. Shultz of the Senate, who sees,...

    National Review ^ | 01/01/2021 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    In a lengthy post on Facebook, Nebraska GOP senator Ben Sasse addresses the danger of Congress attempting to overturn the election on January 6: The president and his allies are playing with fire. They have been asking – first the courts, then state legislatures, now the Congress – to overturn the results of a presidential election. They have unsuccessfully called on judges and are now calling on federal officeholders to invalidate millions and millions of votes. If you make big claims, you had better have the evidence. But the president doesn’t and neither do the institutional arsonist members of Congress...

    Republican Sen. Ben Sasse ripped into Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for the lawsuit he filed with the Supreme Court hoping to overturn President Donald Trump's election loss. 'I'm no lawyer, but I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away,' Sasse said in a statement, given to The Washington Examiner. 'From the brief, it looks like fella begging for a pardon filed a PR stunt rather than a lawsuit - as all of its assertions have already been rejected by federal courts and Texas' own solicitor general isn't signing on.' Paxton is under criminal investigation by the FBI over claims...

    Apparently, Senator Ben Sasse has not the moral courage to stand behind President Trump in his fight to defend America’s election integrity and the sacrosanct right of the vote. It seems too that Senator Sasse neither gives a rat’s tail about justice. No surprise, since Sasse has from the beginning opposed America’s 45th president. Being anything but shy in expressing disapproval, Sasse often publically ridicules President Trump – and this is why the senator could not move fast enough to get his pointy snout up Joe Biden’s butt to congratulate the geriatric prevaricator on the electoral fraud the Democrats perpetrated...

    Few Republicans have spoken out publicly against President Trump's refusal to concede the election he definitively lost, as he and his legal team continue to promote baseless claims of voter fraud. Mr. Trump's campaign has launched lawsuits in several states won by President-elect Joe Biden alleging voting discrepancies, but nearly all of these challenges have been unsuccessful. Nonetheless, the president's legal team has continued to baselessly claim that fraud occurred. In a rambling, often incoherent news conference on Thursday, the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani falsely said that Democrats were attempting to steal the election...

    If Donald Trump doesn’t take the Oath of Office on January 20, 2021, one principal but little-noted reason for this may be that he crossed one of the most powerful and least accountable forces in the nation: the military-industrial complex. As Trump said last September, “the top people in the Pentagon…want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy. But we’re getting out of the endless wars, you know how we’re doing.” Now, however, that Joe Biden has been anointed “President-elect”...

It is not a good idea," Sasse in a recent telephone town hall with his constituents. "I think we...

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) signaled he would support a Congressional investigation of senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s personal email use during a Tuesday evening interview with CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump sent hundreds of emails from a personal email address that she shared with her husband and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner. Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Trump’s attorney Abbe Lowell, said the emails almost exclusively revolved around “logistics and scheduling concerning her family.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican senator spoke out Tuesday against President Donald Trump’s use of the Bible “as a political prop” as the president warned protesters he would deploy the U.S. military to end violent protests against police brutality. Police used tear gas to clear peaceful demonstrators from a park Monday night near the White House so Trump could walk to a nearby church and pose with a Bible. “There is no right to riot, no right to destroy others’ property, and no right to throw rocks at police. But there is a fundamental — a Constitutional — right to...
