    Jason Lewis wanted to finish what he started. His time in Congress was cut short, one of more than 20 casualties of the Trump midterms, when Democrats picked up a net total of over 40 seats in the House. One of his regrets: he didn’t fight back hard enough. That’s why he wrote “Party Animal: The Truth About President Trump, Power Politics and the Partisan Press.” “Yet no one defied these rules more than Donald Trump. And so did I. But not nearly enough. This book is an attempt to finish the job and tell the real side of the...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is reportedly preparing to discipline border agents who were falsely accused of having ‘whipped’ Haitian illegal immigrants for “administrative violations.” The reports of coming administrative punishment comes despite the agents having been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. Not to mention the photographic evidence indicating they had done nothing wrong during the incident. Fox News is reporting that an announcement on the disciplinary actions for the border agents will be incoming soon.

    Alpha News recently sat down with Minnesota Rep. Jeremy Munson to discuss his ongoing congressional bid. Munson outlined a variety of objectives that primarily centered around establishing America-first economic policies, securing future elections and making sure farmers in Minnesota’s First Congressional District are not hampered by unnecessary regulations amid an impending food shortage. He also expressed his support for ending COVID-19 regulations and holding Dr. Anthony Fauci accountable for his role in the pandemic response. “He needs to be held accountable for lying to the American public,” Munson said. “He needs to go away. He needs to be held accountable...
  • Elon Musk Infuriates The Left By Exposing How Radical They’ve Gotten, Leaving Moderates To Side With The GOP

    Elon Musk on Thursday posted a graphic indicating liberals have moved so far to the left as ‘woke’ progressives that it’s left people in the middle inadvertently on the right side of the political spectrum through no fault of their own. The image shows a set of stick figures and lines representing the years 2008, 2012, and 2021. Each timeframe has three stick figures – one to the left representing a liberal, one to the right representing a conservative, and one in the middle labeled ‘me.’ In each, the liberal stick figure shifts – nay, runs – further to the...
  • Don't Fall for It ! Democrats May Pressure the GOP Into Making the Filibuster Meaningless: An old strategy that’s worked for Democrats before may work again.

    Democrats are dusting off a familiar strategy to advance key pieces of President Joe Biden's agenda through the evenly divided Senate over Republican objections. In doing so, they hope to pressure Republicans to finally support their effort to take up the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. And Democrats' past success employing the strategy to compel Republicans to cooperate with them suggests that their plan could work again this time.Republicans have twice prevented the Senate from taking up the voting rights bill by filibustering it. The bill's supporters have called for changing the Senate rules to prevent a minority...

    The left is admitting that the 2022 midterms may indeed have already been won! Republican redistricting has already given the GOP enough new seats to take control of congress! In this video, we’re going to look at those redistricting efforts, we’re going to see how the left is utterly panicked as a result, and stick with me to the very end of this video when I’ll reveal why pundits believe the Democrats will implode and they won’t recover for the next decade.

    House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) told Breitbart News during a press conference Tuesday that Republicans should oppose the “fake” $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. Democrat leadership said that the House will vote on the $1.2 trillion so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill, otherwise known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, on September 27. The bill, which faced significant opposition from Senate conservatives, passed with the help of 19 Senate Republicans in August. Axios reported Monday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) might rely on House moderate Republicans to pass the legislation, as many progressive Democrats may oppose the...

    19 Native American pueblos and the Jicarilla Apache Nation have submitted congressional redistricting plans to the Citizens Redistricting Committee, which ironically would likely oust current Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell — a Native American member of the Cherokee Nation. “This effort reflects not only an understanding of the importance of tribal involvement in the redistricting process, but more importantly, the need to protect our cherished right to vote,” claimed Wilfred Herrera Jr., governor of Laguna Pueblo and chairman of the All Pueblo Council of Governors. As reported by the Albuquerque Journal: The proposed congressional map would dramatically reshape the 1st Congressional...

    On Wednesday, Gabe Vasquez, a far-left city councilor in Las Cruces, announced he is running for Congress in New Mexico’s Second Congressional District to challenge incumbent Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell. Vasquez is a known socialist who is diametrically opposed to most values held by the district — values that ex-Rep. Xochitl Torres Small — tried to use to sway moderates. He is a far-left rabid partisan with some of the most extreme far-left views available. Vasquez believes President Donald Trump’s southern border wall is an “insult” and he believes in the naturalization of criminal aliens into New Mexico. Vasquez claimed...

    In January of this year, the Democratic party took control of the United States Senate, giving them the Washington trifecta – control of the House, the Senate, and the White House. Barely six months later, Democrats are preparing for what is likely to be a devastating mid-terms for them. Don’t believe me? Well ask Democrats themselves. This week, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, sounded the alarm bells in a closed door meeting of House Democrats. During a closed-door lunch last week with some of his most vulnerable incumbents, House Democrats’ campaign chief...

    The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is taking sides against AOC-backed congressional candidate Nina Turner and delivering some backhanded insults in the process. A Politico report indicates that the CBC is “playing favorites” by backing Turner’s opponent, Shontel Brown, in the race to represent Ohio’s 11th congressional district in a seat vacated in March by Marcia Fudge. Brown, the local Democrat Party chairwoman, is considered a moderate.

    It is time to acknowledge and ugly truth. Kevin McCarthy has effectively resigned his position as Republican House Minority Leader. by allowing Nancy Pelosi to usurp his power to seat Republicans representatives on House committees. McCarthy should try to retain some dignity and resign as House Minority Leader and make way for someone that will fight for Americans like Rep. Jim Jordan. If GOP representatives are accepting appointments from Democrat Nancy Pelosi instead of Kevin McCarthy then McCarthy has demonstrably lost control of the Republicans in the House and he must resign. Kevin McCarthy has surrendered to Nancy Pelosi and,...

    Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced legislation designed to rein in Big Tech censorship of Americans, telling such companies they’ll be getting “no more free passes.” Rubio issued a statement to the Daily Caller in which he accused tech companies and social media platforms of having “openly interfered in our elections” and “baselessly” censored important topics. The bill – dubbed the DISCOURSE Act (Disincentivizing Internet Service Censorship of Online Users and Restrictions on Speech and Expression) – would remove section 230 protections for Big Tech companies that use certain practices and hold them “accountable.”
