    In an effort to institutionalize the ad hoc procedures that won the 2020 presidential election for Joe Biden, Democrats in Congress have crafted legislation that would mandate sweeping changes in the voting process nationwide. The "For the People" Act's lead sponsor Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md) emphasized the urgency of getting this done now, saying "We may not get the opportunity to make this change again for many, many decades, so let's not miss that window. Shame on us if we don't get this done." Among the changes that will be made is to make vote-by-mail universal. Sarbanes explained that "the...

    Twelve days after Kansas Republican Sen. Jerry Moran voted to acquit former President Donald Trump for incitement of insurrection, he received Trump’s endorsement for re-election. Trump made the announcement Thursday evening. Moran will run for a third Senate term in 2022 in a state that went for Trump by double digits in two elections. “Senator Jerry Moran is doing a terrific job for the wonderful people of Kansas. Strong on Military, Vets, the Border, and our Second Amendment, Jerry has my Complete and Total Endorsement for his re-election in 2022!” Trump said in a statement released by his new Save...

    Supporters of the losing presidential candidate in Niger set several buildings on fire, burnt tyres and threw rocks at the police on Thursday, as the authorities announced that two people had been killed in post-election protests this week. The national electoral commission on Tuesday declared ruling party candidate Mohamed Bazoum the winner of Sunday’s runoff election with 55.75% of the vote, but his rival, Mahamane Ousmane, a former president, has alleged fraud and claimed he won with 50.3%. Since then, two people have been killed and 468 detained during protests by Ousmane’s supporters in the capital Niamey, Interior Minister Alkache...
  • Illinois’ Latest Use Of Taxpayer Money As Political Club – Wirepoints

    Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs and a group of 29 other state financial officials recently sent letters to six of the nation’s largest private sector money managers in a transparently partisan attempt to bully them out of supporting Republicans. The effort is a misuse of the power that adheres to managing billions of dollars of taxpayer money and sets a dangerous precedent that might well invite retaliation in the same form by Republicans holding similar offices or from a Republican successor to Frerichs. It’s an attempt by incumbent officeholders to control much of the money that controls politics. Unfortunately, the effort...

    Washington — President Biden announced his three nominees to join the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors on Wednesday, the first step for the board to potentially oust controversial Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. There are currently three vacancies on the nine-member board, and the six existing members were all appointed by former President Donald Trump. Mr. Biden has chosen Anton Hajjar, the former general counsel of the American Postal Workers Union; Amber McReynolds, a voting rights activist and the CEO of the National Vote at Home Institute; and Ron Stroman, who recently retired as deputy postmaster general. If confirmed by...

    California Democrats are so concerned the campaign to oust Governor Gavin Newsom may work that they’re going straight to the political tricknology playbook we saw in the November election and scheming to defeat the recall by nearly any means necessary. The Sacramento Bee reports there are several ways they’re considering putting a monkey wrench into the works. Here’s a list of the ways in which Democrats plan to make rule changes or do what they can to benefit their political party: The Bee reports that Democrats are considering trying to change the date of the recall to the “next regularly...

    And then all of a sudden, Perdue says he's not running for Senate again! But he says it's a "personal decision" not "a political one" Bwhahahahahahahahaha Let the word go forth, from this time and place, that if you want to be a pantywaist Republican, you're through!

    David Perdue announced Tuesday morning he will not run for reelection to the United State Senate Seat in Georgia in 2022. The 71 year old filed campaign paperwork on February 15, but announced in a press statement that he and his wife, Bonnie, made the personal decision that he will not run again, and that it was not a political one. "I am confident that whoever wins the Republican Primary next year will defeat the Democrat candidate in the General election for this seat, and I will do everything I can to make that happen," he said in the announcement....

    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he expects to lose $65 million in pillow revenue this year because of retailer boycotts over his claims that the 2020 US election was rigged. That projection, Lindell told Insider in an interview Monday after being served with a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems seeking $1.3 billion in damages, is evidence he isn't pushing election-fraud claims for the money. "I lost 20 retailers, and it's cost me $65 million this year that I won't get back, OK?" Lindell told Insider. "There's your story. Print it right. Don't try and twist this." The 121-page lawsuit...
  • Establishment GOPs Trembling In Light Of Trump’s Return

    According to a new survey, almost half of conservatives say they will leave the GOP to join a third-party created by former President Trump. That does not look good for the Republican establishment. The new survey put out by Suffolk University and USA Today found a shocking 46 percent of conservatives are ready to leave the Republican party in order to join Donald Trump. Only 27 percent of Republicans said they would stay in the GOP, with the rest saying they were undecided. No wonder the establishment jumped at the opportunity to disqualify Trump from running for office in 2024....

    President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is under fire as Republicans in the Senate unify against him and Democrats remain uncertain if they will be able to cobble together enough votes to secure confirmation. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), meanwhile, is launching new television ads in both New Hampshire and Georgia against the Biden HHS nominee and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra where Democrat Sens. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and Raphael Warnock (D-GA) face tough reelection bids in battleground states in 2022.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he is whipping votes for President Joe Biden’s nominee, Neera Tanden, to lead the Office of Management and Budget, despite pushback from senators. “I am working with President Biden to find the extra votes so she can be passed,” he told reporters during a news conference in New York on Sunday, mentioning Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who said last week he would not vote for Tanden. “I think she would be a very good OMB leader,” Schumer added. Tanden’s confirmation as director is in further jeopardy after Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced Monday...

    s there any political organization in history that likes losing as much as the Republican Party? Over the last several weeks, the saga of Neera Tanden has played out on the national stage. Joe Biden nominated the left-wing conspiracy theorist to head the Office of Management and Budget, one of the most powerful agencies in Washington (see Joe Biden Wants a Wild Conspiracy Theorist as OMB Head). For a time, her confirmation looked certain after the GOP lost both Senate run-offs in Georgia, but Joe Manchin (D-WV) blew that up recently by announcing he’d oppose her. That’s left Democrats scrambling,...
  • Biden smashes Obama’s record for lowest number of counties won by successful presidential candidate (buried but relevant news)

    Joe Biden is on track to smash another of Barack Obama’s records. If Mr Biden takes office, he will have set a new low for the percentage of counties won by a successful US presidential candidate – just 15 per cent. The former Democratic Vice President appears to have secured an electoral college victory with just 477 out of the country’s 3143 counties and county-equivalents. Hillary Clinton, in her failed 2016 run, won 472 counties. Former President Obama ushered in the previous low in 2012, winning re-election with just 689 counties, or 22 per cent – breaking his own record...
  • Sen. Thune Equates Primaries Against Republican Senators Who Voted to Convict Trump to Cancel Culture

    Senator John Thune (R-SD), a coffee boy for Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), said that Republican voters attempting to punish senators who voted to convict former President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial are engaging in “cancel culture.” Obviously, this man doesn’t have a clue what cancel culture is. How can we have politicians representing Republicans when they don’t even know what cancel culture is? Nobody is saying they want them silenced, and no one is saying they don’t think they should ever work again. They are simply exercising their Constitutional right to decide who will represent them...

    The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has taken initial steps to make a decision in a contested Iowa election, one involving Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Amy Hart, who lost to Miller-Meeks by six votes. Democrats have now begun to shift their focus to the race after Hart’s continuous claim that Miller-Meeks was improperly declared the winner, although multiple recounts have shown otherwise. As reported by Politico, the “House Administration Committee gathered virtually Friday afternoon to finalize the process by which it will adjudicate Hart’s claim, which was filed under the Federal Contested Elections Act.”

    Sen. John Thune is criticizing Republican activists and party leaders for engaging in “cancel culture” by rushing to censure GOP senators who found former President Donald Trump guilty of inciting an insurrection. In his first interview since he voted to acquit Trump, the Senate’s No. 2 Republican on Thursday defended fellow Republicans who sided with Democrats on the “vote of conscience” and warned against shutting out dissenting voices in the party. “There was a strong case made,” Thune said of the Democrats’ impeachment presentation. “People could come to different conclusions. If we’re going to criticize the media and the left...
