    Let me be clear: the president of the United States had every right to question the counting practices, lack of transparency and rules changes without legislative approval leading up to his defeat. Questioning government is a critical component of American culture and society. It's part of why a Republican form of government can work. The problem today is that too many people ignore facts and history and regurgitate "talking points" from agenda-driven elites who control the "means of communication". When the president of the United States is not "allowed" to inspire legal and peaceful protests, then we no longer live...

  • McConnell Believes Impeachment Push Will Help Rid Trump From The GOP

    CNN ^ | January 13, 2021
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated that he believes that impeaching President Donald Trump will make it easier to get rid of the President and Trumpism from the Republican Party, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. Another person with direct knowledge told CNN there's a reason McConnell has been silent on impeachment as other Republicans have pushed back: he's furious about last week's attack on the US Capitol by the President's supporters, even more so that Trump has shown no contrition. His silence has been deliberate as he leaves open the option of supporting impeachment. McConnell...
  • Let's get real Pence could not give the Presidency to Trump

    01/12/2021 7:30:24 PM PST · by springwater13 · 165 replies
    A couple things would have happened if Pence unilaterally ignored the election results in the Senate. 1) The Democrats would immediately sue and it would go before the Supreme Court within 24 hours and overturned. Even a Republican Majority could not allow it as it would create the Precedent of any future Democrat Vice President being given the authority to unilaterally void an electoral college and Congressional certification vote. It was always a ludicrous argument. 2) Pence would be promptly impeached by Pelosi and likely would have to resign or face a Senate trial. The only thing it may have...
  • Scoop: McConnell Leans Toward Convicting Trump

    01/12/2021 7:51:04 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 90 replies ^ | Jan 13, 2021
    There's a better than 50-50 chance that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would vote to convict President Trump in an impeachment trial, sources tell Axios. What they're saying: "The Senate institutional loyalists are fomenting a counterrevolution" to Trump, said a top Republican close to McConnell. Why it matters: This would represent one of the most shocking and damning votes in the history of American politics, by the most powerful Republican in Congress. McConnell's vote would open the door to the possibility that Trump could be convicted and prohibited from running for president again.

    Irish Independent via Press Reader ^ | 12th January 2021 | Ian O'Doherty
    IN HIS highly entertaining 2018 travelogue, Another Fine Mess, English journalist Tim Moore drove an old Ford Model T through the American regions which had voted most heavily in favour of Donald Trump. A self-confessed “typical liberal”, Moore was curious about the kind of people who would vote for a man that Moore and his peers viewed with a mixture of contempt and derision. As it happened, the author was surprised to discover that the vast majority of those Trump supporters he encountered were kind, good natured and eager to offer a helping hand. He freely admitted that they flew...
  • Pence Reached His Limit With Trump. It Wasn’t Pretty.

    For Vice President Mike Pence, the moment of truth had arrived. After three years and 11 months of navigating the treacherous waters of President Trump’s ego, after all the tongue-biting, pride-swallowing moments where he employed strategic silence or florid flattery to stay in his boss’s good graces, there he was being cursed by the president. Mr. Trump was enraged that Mr. Pence was refusing to try to overturn the election. In a series of meetings, the president had pressed relentlessly, alternately cajoling and browbeating him. Finally, just before Mr. Pence headed to the Capitol to oversee the electoral vote count...

We are all waiting for the Insurrection Act announcement about Foreign Interference in our Presidential and Georgia Senate Election. We implore Trump or Rudy to make an announcement.

    President Trump acknowledged that he bears some blame for the Capitol riot last week during a conversation with House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, a source familiar told Fox News. Two sources say McCarthy R-Calif., relayed the president’s sentiment on a call Monday with the House GOP Conference. McCarthy, on the call Monday with Republicans, agreed that Trump bore blame for the unrest which sent Congress into lockdown as they tried to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election last week. The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The riot left five people dead, including one...

  • The Sordid History of Swiss Cheese

    01/03/2021 12:30:53 PM PST · by SamAdams76 · 33 replies
    300 B.C. Somewhere in what is now Switzerland: three Celts make camp for the night in the dark of a pine forest. One snaps branches from a nearby tree while others empty milk from crude hide bladders into a small wooden bucket. One pine branch becomes a spit to hold the bucket, the other branch a stirring rod. They stir the curds and nod approvingly to one another at the smell. They are making Swiss cheese, long before the birth of Switzerland, or even Julius Caesar, and some 2300 years before the grand opening of Foods For Living.When Julius Caesar...

    NY Times ^ | 1/1/2021 | Richard Fausset
    ATLANTA — President Trump took to Twitter Friday evening to make the unfounded assertion that Georgia’s two Senate races are “illegal and invalid,” an argument that could complicate his efforts to convince his supporters to turn out for Republican candidates in the two runoff races that will determine which party controls the Senate. The president is set to hold a rally in Dalton, Ga., on Monday, the day before Election Day, and Georgia Republicans are hoping he will focus his comments on how crucial it is for Republicans to vote in large numbers for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, the...

    President Donald Trump will be leaving Washington soon, but the most powerful Republican of the past four years isn't going anywhere. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, says a former member of the White House staff who advised Trump throughout the first three turbulent years in office, "was sort of Trump's 'Washington whisperer.' He offered quiet advice, and provided critical help on some very big stuff," says the former staffer, who requested anonymity in order to talk candidly. ''You could call him kind of a co-president." Much of Trump's legacy, when it comes to domestic policy at least, will be fleeting....

A few brave #MAGA Reps & Senators will object. But the GOP establishment will NOT, for as long as they can avoid it. Trump knows that. (If the link fails to work I will post a backup link in the first post.) Why?

    Senate Republicans are sending a clear message to President Trump: The election is over and Joe Biden won. While Trump is digging in and showing little sign of ending his public campaign despite a long losing streak in the courts, GOP senators - from leadership on down - are signaling they view the election result as settled and want to move on without a messy weeks-long fight. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) publicly congratulated Biden during a Senate floor speech, in his first public acknowledgement of the former vice president's victory. He subsequently urged Senate Republicans during a caucus...
