  • Here’s Why Mike Johnson Is More Dangerous Than Donald Trump

    The Daily Beast via Yahoo ^ | October 26th, 2023 | David Rothkopf
    The most dangerous movement in American politics today is not Trumpism. It is Christofascism. With the election of Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, the organized effort to impose the extreme religious views of a minority of Americans on the entire country, at the expense of many of our most basic freedoms, took a disturbing step forward.Despite Speaker Johnson’s claims of being a constitutional “originalist,” via his elevation by a unanimous vote of his Republican colleagues he has moved America closer to having precisely the kind of government America’s founders most feared.Thomas Jefferson said...
  • No stock trading, a hefty home mortgage, and more than $120,000 from Liberty University: Here's what we know about newly-elected Speaker Mike Johnson's personal finances

    House Speaker Mike Johnson is much less wealthy than other members of Congress. He doesn't trade any stocks and has a home mortgage valued between $250,000 and $500,000. He's made more than $120,000 since 2018 teaching online classes at Liberty University.The new speaker of the House is not as wealthy as most of his colleagues.That's perhaps the biggest insight one can draw from eight years of financial disclosures filed by Rep. Mike Johnson since 2016, when he first ran to represent Louisiana's 4th congressional district.
  • The GOP Is at War With Its Base

    Townhall ^ | Oct 23, 2023 | Jeff Crouere
    For many years, the leadership of the Republican Party has been at war with the grassroots activists who work tirelessly on its behalf. This division has been apparent ever since Donald Trump descended the escalator in 2015 and announced his presidential campaign. Advertisement The party establishment worked overtime to deny the nomination to Trump, yet the Republican voters overwhelmingly supported him. The resentment toward Trump and his supporters continued during his presidency and still exists today. Sadly, there is little chance this divide will be bridged any time soon. The latest example occurred last week as congressional Republicans were attempting...
  • Why establishment knives are out for Elon Musk

    New York Post ^ | August 30, 2023 | Glenn H. Reynolds
    The knives are out for Elon Musk. But why, exactly? There’s a big reason and a small reason. The big reason is that he’s a powerful figure who isn’t under the control of the establishment. When he saw how the establishment was using Twitter (in collusion with various government agencies, we now know) to suppress speech it didn’t like, he bought Twitter and put a stop to it. Where just before the 2020 election, the establishment was able to shut down reporting from this paper about Hunter Biden’s laptop, now the establishment finds such censorship much harder. That was unforgivable...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/24/2023 | Peter Barry Chowka
    Democrat candidate for president Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. went farther on Sunday than he has previously in criticizing President Joe Biden for the latter's (alleged) corruption. During live in-studio interview with FOX News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures at 10:30 A.M. E.T. (video and article here), Kennedy, when first asked about how he feels about Biden, said as he has on other occasions that "I have avoided criticizing the president because I'm trying to bring people together."After Bartiromo said, "But corruption is corruption," Kennedy commented without hesitation, "But you're right. And I think that the issues that are...

    Many 2020-22 Americans, who consider themselves more sophisticated than their 1950s counterpart, nonetheless embraced Coronamania’s nonsensical lockdowns, school closures, masks, testing, and vaxxes.What cultural changes caused people to go from the radical, “anti-Establishment” 1960s and cynical Watergate/post-Vietnam/“Do your own thing” 1970s to the gullible, government-believing/medical expert-worshiping 2020s?

    Longtime Oregon Republican National Committeeman Solomon Yue is facing a recall from the state party that he suspects is in response to his support of former President Donald Trump. Yue, who is in his sixth term as state GOP national committeeman, is basing his assumption, at least in part, on the petition to recall him having been circulating days after he met with the former president, who promised to hold a rally in Oregon. Trump met with Yue last month at the National Rifle Association’s National Convention in Indianapolis. Yue told Just the News this weekend he wanted Trump to...

    Former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson announces on ABC news that he will be running for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.Speaking in the customary tones of an evangelical minister trained in the dark arts of using a righteous serpent tongue, Mr. Hutchinson indicates that he carries a higher moral authority to sit in judgement of what the professional Republican Party truly needs. The professional Republican Party likely anticipates dozens of votes for Hutchinson.

    Has Fernand Amandi been binge-watching Joe Scarborough? You have to wonder, given his attack vocabulary on Ron DeSantis on Jonathan Capehart's MSNBC Sunday Show this morning. Amandi—an MSNBC analyst and Florida-based Democrat consultant—borrowed one of Scarborough's signature moves: riding a favorite phrase into the ground. No fewer than four times, Amandi described DeSantis, with full stops between each word, as a "MAGA. Extremist. Bully."For good measure, Amandi employed another tired Scarborough trope: referring to DeSantis as a "fascist." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Eighteen months after an insurgent “MAGA” movement took over the Greenville County Republican Party, the South Carolina GOP headquarters that’s at odds with the group is planning to seize control of the county party’s upcoming local organizational efforts. State party Executive Director Hope Walker said the move is rooted in concerns that the leadership of the county party has alienated mainline Republican voters who state leaders want to attract as they look to the 2024 election cycle. Jeff Davis, chairman of the Greenville GOP, called the state’s intervention a “tyrannical” power grab using dirty tricks to find any justification to...

    Ten establishment senators on Thursday helped Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) Title 42 amendment fail, enabling the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill advance in the Senate, while providing political cover for 2024 endangered Democrat senators. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) worked with Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) and Jon Tester (D-MT) Thursday morning to circumvent Lee’s amendment by crafting a side-by-side amendment to provide political cover for ten senators to ignore Lee’s Title 42 amendment, which was thawing a wrench into the passage of the omnibus bill. Lee’s Title 42 amendment tied funds for the Department of Homeland Security to the Biden administration maintaining...

    Establishment House Republicans signaled Thursday they oppose impeaching President Joe Biden after reclaiming the majority.While conservative members of the House filed nine articles of impeachment against Biden since 2021, many establishment Republicans, now with more power in the majority, believe impeaching Biden is not a good idea.“We shouldn’t even be talking about that, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) told Politico. Fitzpatrick recently won his election by about ten points over his Democrat challenger.“There’s so many problems we’ve got to deal with on the policy front … I don’t like the fact that that’s even being discussed,” Fitzpatrick whined.Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE),...

    The elites hate Trump and the MAGA movement because populism gives the everyday person a say in how America runs.Donald Trump finally made an announcement on Tuesday that he’d been hinting at for a long time; he will, once again, be running for president. Naturally, the internet and airwaves were flooded with people providing their perspectives on who the future of the Republican Party would or should be.A considerable amount of the rhetoric surrounding Trump and his candidacy, however, remains incredibly cynical and appears to be guiding Republican voters away from the political framework that unleashed America’s latent economic prowess...

GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the favored candidate to win the party’s nomination for Speaker, will face a challenge from at least one of his colleagues during Tuesday’s vote.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is recording a robocall for underdog Senate contender Joe O’Dea, a boost for the Colorado Republican after former President Donald Trump urged grassroots conservatives to abandon his campaign. “Hello this is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. America needs strong leadership and desperately. That’s why I’m endorsing Joe O’Dea for U.S. Senate. Colorado, please vote for Joe O’Dea,” DeSantis says in the robocall, a recording of which was provided to the Washington Examiner on Sunday by the O’Dea campaign. “I’ve watched Joe from a distance. And I’m impressed.” In endorsing O’Dea, DeSantis is charting a course separate...
