    GOP Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio announced on Thursday that he will not seek reelection, becoming the first of the 10 House Republicans who had voted in January to impeach then-President Donald Trump to decide to retire. Trump has targeted the Republicans, trying to purge them from the party. "1 down, 9 to go," Trump said in a statement after Gonzalez's announcement. The other nine House Republicans have also faced backlash, including from Trump, members of their party and primary challenge threats. But they're also well positioned in that their campaigns have raised in most races more money than their...

    Former President Donald Trump on Friday reveled in Rep. Anthony Gonzalez’s decision to not seek reelection rather than face a bruising primary after he voted to impeach Trump earlier this year. “RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez, who has poorly represented his district in the Great State of Ohio, has decided to quit after enduring a tremendous loss of popularity, of which he had little, since his ill-informed and otherwise very stupid impeachment vote against the sitting President of the United States, me,” Trump said in a statement issued by his PAC. Trump has been prolific in doling out his endorsement since...

    Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R) announced his retirement on Thursday, declining to run against a Trump-backed primary challenger in 2022. Why it matters: Gonzalez has suffered politically since siding with House Democrats to impeach the 45th president after the Capitol riot. Details: The two-term congressman largely supported Trump's agenda — up until the former president tried to block the election certification, per the New York Times. Gonzalez is one of 10 House Republicans who voted for impeachment. The Ohio Republican Party censured Gonzalez and called on him to resign. Trump, who called Gonzalez a "sellout," endorsed GOP challenger and former...

    A Democratic lawmaker has joined the chorus of Republicans upset with President Joe Biden’s immigration policies, saying his Texas district would be severely affected. “We’re in the middle of a pandemic, but for thousands of people to be reaching our border in the middle of a pandemic in a disorderly fashion would be catastrophic to my district,” Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas) said on March 1 during an appearance on CNN, as border arrivals have spiked after dropping precipitously during the Trump administration. “I have lost over 3,000 citizens to COVID in my southern border district. I still have over 1,000...

  • When Most Americans Blindly Believed the Word of a China-linked Communist Dictator

    “Americans reported bipartisan distrust of the (communist) Chinese government’s public statements about the coronavirus pandemic…according to a new Harris poll. Ninety percent of Republican respondents said that China was to blame for the spread of the coronavirus, and 67 percent of Democrats concurred," National Review reports. And yet, 20 years ago this very month, according to Gallup: “Americans say it’s in Elian Gonzalez best interest to return to (communist) Cuba with his father…a majority (of Americans) favor Elian’s physical removal from the home of his Miami relatives if necessary.” So how did such a majority American opinion come about? Well,...

    It must be exhausting. The idea that everyone is out to get you is classically thought of as extreme paranoia. However, some people probably do have some grounds to be concerned about their safety. After all, there are those in the world who receive death threats by the dozens. But even one death threat is enough to make anyone concerned. It doesn’t help when you go out of your way to piss people off, either. Perhaps that’s why anti-gun activist and Parkland kid Emma Gonzalez decided to admit that she’s terrified someone with a gun sticker on their car will...

    Tomorrow marks the 18th anniversary of the return of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba, the original ripping away of a child from his family. It was an event that the Left CHEERED. A mother (with her husband's blessing . . . if he didn't grant it they would never have made it out and everyone knows that) makes the ultimate sacrifice for her child's future by giving her life up so that her child could be raised in Florida by her family. We all remember that photo, the one that the Left can never accept was true fascism in action, of...

    Parkland student Emma González...and her fellow students at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School “ostracized” fellow student Nikolas Cruz. Said González when speaking in Washington at the anti-gun “March for Our Lives”: “Since he was in middle school, it was no surprise to anyone who knew him, that he was the shooter. Those talking about how we should have not ostracized him? You didn’t know this kid! OK? We did!” Which is to say, González just made a startling admission. Parkland students bullied Nikolas Cruz. It may well be that González is right — the rest of us didn’t know...

    Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes, a survivor of a mass-shooting incident, called the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School "disgusting vile abusers of the dead" for participating in the March for Our Lives protest. Hughes penned his tirade in the caption of an Instagram post that mocked gun control and the efforts for stricter gun laws. "Obviously … The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law (like the law against Murder) is to ... pass another Law," Hughes wrote. "But before we pass this law we're going to denigrate the memory and...

    CNN’s Alisyn Camerota spoke with school shooting survivors-turned-activists David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez about their thoughts about the government’s reaction to the Parkland shooting, and they were not having any of it. After Camerota pointed out President Donald Trump‘s weekend tweetstorm insisting that FBI negligence over a tip about shooter Nikolas Cruz was due to an organization-wide obsession with proving the – in the president’s mind – specious notion that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, Hogg went full throttle on the commander-in-chief. “I think it’s disgusting,” Hogg said. “My father is a retired FBI agent and the FBI are...
