  • GOP leadership frustrated with Trump as he wages war on Alaska’s Murkowski

    04/20/2021 9:01:19 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 67 replies
    According to a report from CNN, Donald Trump’s focus on unseating Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has the Republican leadership throwing up their hands in exasperation as they look toward the 2022 elections. While multiple GOP lawmakers voted against the ex-president during his second impeachment trial, Trump has been laser-focused on the one female senator who broke ranks and said he should have been removed from office. Since that time, Kelly Tshibaka, a former Alaska Department of Administration commissioner, has jumped into the race with help from former Trump advisers while Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has offered his full...
  • How 1 risky decision could hurt Republicans' Senate chances (CNN whines)

    Candidates matter. Which is why Senate and House party committees have long reserved the right to wade into contentious primary fights and pick the candidate they believe has the best chance of winning a seat for them in the general election. And why Florida Sen. Rick Scott's (R) decision, as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, to stay entirely out of all primary fights in the 2022 election is a big deal, and a major risk. "We're not going to participate," Scott told The Washington Post for a profile that ran over the weekend. "I think the public will...
  • Popeyes-loving New Orleans is getting 3 new Chick-fil-As — but do they even want them?

    04/18/2021 4:47:40 PM PDT · by mylife · 55 replies
    Fried chicken is serious business in New Orleans. The city where the Popeyes chain was born in 1972 has no shortage of great places to dine on crunchy, flavorful fried chicken, but when some residents found out this week that Chick-fil-A was moving in, they weren't cluckin' having it. "Something to smile about," New Orleans council member Kristin Palmer tweeted. "The City’s first stand-alone @Chik_Fil_A is coming to #algiers in 2022." The popular chicken chain, which has also been embroiled in controversy for funding anti-LGBTQ organizations over the years, has stayed off Popeyes' home turf — until now.'
  • REASON: Josh Hawley's Toxic Populism

    Reason ^ | March 8 | PETER SUDERMAN
    Is the senator's authoritarian grandstanding the dark future of the GOP?When rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol in January, Sen. Josh Hawley (R–Mo.) was there. Not only was he happy to see the mob assembled outside his workplace; he cheered them on. Shortly before the group of conspiracists and reactionaries broke into the building—vandalizing offices, taking selfies amid the wreckage, and dramatically halting business on both the House and Senate floors as lawmakers were evacuated to secure locations, sometimes fearing for their lives—Hawley had been photographed giving them a raised fist of encouragement. Earlier that morning, then–President Donald Trump had addressed...

    Donald Trump is set to make his first trip to New York since leaving the White House amid an apparent rift with son-in-law Jared Kushner who the ex-president is said to be angry with over his election loss. Trump is jetting back to the Big Apple this weekend after spending the last six weeks holed up at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, since he snubbed Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. News of his visit comes amid reports of escalating tensions between Trump and former White House Senior Adviser Jared in the days since they both left DC.

    Mark Meckler, the new interim CEO of Parler, currently supports a Convention of States that could give George Soros and other interests the power to rewrite the Constitution. Meckler, who was appointed as interim CEO of Parler following the removal of founder John Matze, currently runs the Convention of States Project, a supposed “grassroots” organization pushing for a convention under Article V of the Constitution. The project describes itself as a “national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its...

    Tarring Trump supporters for the January riots is too convenient and simple. Having been to half a dozen Trump rallies and following closely online, this is clearly not the nature of Trump supporters. Seems to me fringe groups might be involved but that the instigators and participants in illegal, violent acts were not Trump supporters, Are there any credible summaries detailing who was involved and arrested? ...to dispel the conclusion that these were real Trump supporters.

    National Interest ^ | 1/13/2021 | Rachel Bucchino
    After an uproarious attack on the U.S. Capitol last week, Vice President Mike Pence split from his commander-in-chief and quickly condemned the mob-like behavior from pro-Trump supporters—leadership that was tested as President Donald Trump initially hesitated to act. Pence has exercised “unflinching loyalty” towards Trump up until this point, as the president blasted Pence’s constitutional duty in certifying the electoral college results. Trump and his close allies attempted to push his political partner to reject the vote based on baseless claims of voter fraud, but Pence firmly denied the request and proceeded with his authority over the Senate—a job that...

Parler sued Amazon on Monday alleging breach of contract and an antitrust violation. Read the rest...
  • McConnell's efforts to block $2,000 stimulus checks hurt the GOP in Georgia — and may have cost it the Senate

    The Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock early Wednesday were projected to win both US Senate seats in Georgia, handing overall government control to the Democratic Party. One of the pivotal issues in the Georgia campaigns was the prospect of $2,000 COVID-19 stimulus checks, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked. Even though both GOP candidates in Georgia backed $2,000 checks, the party was divided. This allowed Democrats to campaign effectively as the party of $2,000 checks and could've helped them carry the day.

During her appearance on the show, the former Democratic gubernatorial candidate discussed mobilizing voters as well as her belief that Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev.

Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) in Georgia's Senate runoff elections on Tuesday. “I think we’re ready to get it done,” Abrams said. “I put my money on blue.” Abrams told Colbert that she...

    A number of prominent Republicans have spoken out in opposition to the plan, spearheaded by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), to object to Joe Biden electors from the 2020 battleground states being contested by President Donald Trump. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was first to announce he would object to Biden electors in Pennsylvania. Cruz and 11 other Republican senators followed suit, announcing they would object to electors in every battleground. The senators are not claiming, like Trump, that the election was rigged, but simply that there are enough allegations of fraud from the losing candidate to justify objecting to the results....

    We were banned from Parler! We are still in shock. After being lured to the platform with the promise of a "free speech town square" we were banned. We received no warning and no explanation. We didn't post anything on our Parler that we didn't also post to FB and Twitter, so it comes as a great shock that PARLER, the one openly calling themselves the "free speech alternative" is the one that bans us. It's been 4 days now and and no response. We've read their TOS and guidelines multiple times and can confirm that we broke none of...

    President Trump is apparently infuriated by Mike Pence, who the President thinks is “not fighting hard enough” for him and election integrity. In a report from Axios, White House sources reveal that President Trump is notably angry with many of his supposed “allies” who are not fighting the good fight to defend election integrity, most notably Vice President Pence. The President allegedly brought up an ad from the Never Trump group, the Lincoln Project, which claims that Pence is “backing away” from him. According to the sources, Trump believes Pence is “not fighting hard enough” – in the Vice President’s...
