  • The One Wing of the GOP That Keeps Embarrassing Itself Over Trump

    CPAC 2021 is over, and once again it showed how the party is no longer of the Romney-Ryan mold. Guys, it’s not your party anymore. Even Nikki Haley who is flip-flopping all over the place with regards to Trump, the GOP, and the future, admits those days are done. There will always be questions about election integrity during the 2020 election, but the facts are that Trump won the most votes of any incumbent president in history. Not a single House Republican lost his or her re-election. The Senate is split 50-50. And the Trump flavor did not sink the...
  • From now until 2023, the Republican Establishment will try to reduce Trump’s sway

    03/02/2021 3:20:17 AM PST · by cotton1706 · 27 replies ^ | 3/1/21 | JD Rucker
    They never wanted him to be the nominee. They tolerated him as president. They cheered (some quietly) when he lost. Now they want him to go away. But he won't. Why should he? At CPAC yesterday, Donald Trump reaffirmed what many of us already knew. This is his Republican Party. That’s not to say he has any sway with lawmakers currently on Capitol Hill or the RNC itself. But he still holds the hearts and minds of a majority of Republican voters. Conservatives and populists generally love him. The moderates and neocons who support the Republican Establishment do not. With...
  • McConnell says the GOP will back Murkowski's reelection despite Trump threat

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell committed on Monday that Senate Republicans will support GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski's reelection bid in 2022 despite former President Donald Trump advocating that the GOP "get rid of" the 17 Republicans in Congress who voted against him during his second impeachment. Of the seven Senate Republicans who voted to convict Trump of inciting a deadly riot at the Capitol on January 6, Alaska's Murkowski is the only one facing voters in the midterm election next year in a state Trump won by about 10 points last year. "Absolutely," McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, replied when asked...
  • Federal appeals court removes big hurdle to North Carolina voter ID law

    A federal appeals court delivered a victory for voter ID supporters in North Carolina Wednesday, reversing a lower court’s decision that blocked the state’s 2018 voter ID law because of racial bias. The appeals court said a federal judge was wrong to block the ID requirement last year, arguing the judge improperly used past examples of discrimination by the state legislature to conclude the ID law was unfair. “A legislature’s past acts do not condemn the acts of a later legislature, which we must presume acts in good faith,” the unanimous ruling stated. This decision doesn’t ensure North Carolinians will...
  • Alaska has a new election system. Could it protect Murkowski from pro-Trump backlash?

    03/01/2021 4:22:15 AM PST · by cotton1706 · 23 replies ^ | 2/25/21 | Krystal Hur
    But Murkowski might not need to worry about potential backlash from her colleagues or her state. Alaska’s new election system changes how primary elections take place in the state and could protect Murkowski from the ire of pro-Trump Alaskans, potentially paving the way for a successful 2022 election cycle. Alaska’s new election system Last November, Alaska passed — by a slim 1 percent margin — a ballot initiative that will make Alaska the second state after Maine to use a ranked-choice voting system, and the only state to have a primary election system that chooses four top picks. Ballot Measure...
  • Sen. Rick Scott Says He’ll Support Incumbents GOP Senators Over Trump-Backed Candidates

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, verbalized he will fortify any Republican incumbent senator against primary challengers—despite an assertion made by former President Donald Trump that he would primary some senators. Scott, in an interview with Fox News on Sunday, would not verbally express whether the Republican Party belongs to “Trump.”

    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...

    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.

    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...
