  • Here's Why President Trump Should Not Form a New Political Party: Trump’s base needs to become one of the new factions that strikes a deal to build a new coalition.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump had talked to aides about the idea of starting a new political party. His urge is understandable. Considering the events that have transpired since the January 6th riots and some Republicans voting to impeach him, emotions are high. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s floor speech was rather shocking as well as disappointing. Even more so in light of additional information that the Capitol’s breach was planned in advance, not a result of Trump’s comments that day. That really weakens any incitement charge. However, I would ask President Trump to pause for a...

  • If Republicans Put America First, They’ll Remove Liz Cheney, Not Donald Trump

    As the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday, much praise was given to Congresswoman Liz Cheney for being one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach. Cheney is the #3 Republican in the House, which added weight to her stance. But it was her father Dick Cheney and his legacy – a legacy she clearly plans to continue – that is arguably the most impeachable offense in American history.

    American Thinker ^ | 01/14/2021 | J.B. Shurk
    The Republican Party killed itself. The particular poison it swallowed is the hatred it harbors for its own voters. Sooner or later, all that hatred was going to burn it up. When Republican lawmakers turned their backs on Republican voters protesting for free and fair elections and endorsed election fraud by ignoring it, they blew up any remaining illusion that the Red-Blue divide in D.C. is real. Republican voters struggled for over a decade to give the Republican Party all the power it needed to fight for the Constitution and American liberty and against the quickening assault of totalitarian state...
  • Can Donald Trump Still Dominate the GOP?

    The popular narrative circulating in Washington is that Donald Trump is finished. Even if, after a while, he tries to make a comeback, his brand has become so toxic that it’s unlikely he can dominate the Republican stage anymore. He won’t be invited to speak at Republican gatherings. He won’t be asked to campaign for GOP candidates. He will be shunned by the Republican Party now and forevermore. Oh, really? Indeed, losing access to Twitter crippled Trump and his ability to communicate with his followers. But no one has taken away his email account. And there are other social media...

    Two House members nearly came to blows and had to be separated by a Capitol staffer after several lawmakers had preached about coming together as Americans. The wild scene took place as lawmakers debated certifying the Electoral votes from Pennsylvania. An altercation reportedly took place between Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) and Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX), though what prompted it remains unclear.

    According to an exit poll from Tuesday’s runoff election, a strong majority of Republican Georgia voters believe the 2020 presidential election between President Trump and Democrat Joe Biden was not conducted fairly. CNN and Edison Research for the National Election Pool teamed up to conduct an exit poll in Georgia’s Senate runoff election in which incumbent Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue tried to stave off challenges from Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. According to the exit poll, about 75 percent of Georgia Republican voters who participated in the runoff election said that the 2020 presidential election on...

    Perhaps $2000 could be issued for each SSN holder for whom over $1000 in FICA&SE taxes was paid in four quarters within the tax years 2018-2019 who lacked total state unemployment insurance (UI) income in excess of $6000 in the previous UI quarter at least 30 days prior to enactment. If in excess $6000 but less than $14000, the $2000 would be reduced by 25 percent of the excess. Payment would done by the claimant's state unemployment office at least three federal business days after electronically filing a 1099-DJT for $2000(or lower amount) with the IRS so duplicate payouts under...

    In a move that reportedly “shocked” Defense Department officials, Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered Pentagon officials to cancel scheduled meetings with the transition of President-elect Joe Biden. Axios revealed the cancellation of briefings but noted “officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action” and they could not determine “whether President Trump approved” of the move.

    It’s just the flu, bro. We need to change the narrative. Right now the compassionate person is the one who wears a mask at all times and social distances. This is their act of charity to help keep grandma alive and help to avoid the spread of the “deadly” Coronavirus plague. The narrative above is terrible for those who love freedom. So I will refer back to yesterday’s thread for a narrative that properly paints the Flubros and Flubras as altruistic, which we are. Items below sum up the Flubro narrative and counters the covidiots. 1. When I refuse to...

    President Trump called out Mitch McConnell after the Republican Senate Majority Leader congratulated Joe Biden for winning the presidential election. McConnell on Tuesday acknowledged Biden as the winner of the 2020 election for the first time, declaring that “the Electoral College has spoken.” “Yesterday, electors met in all 50 states, so, as of this morning, our country has officially a president-elect and a vice president-elect,” McConnell said.
  • Flashback: Mitch McConnell Received Thousands In Donations From Voting Machine Company Lobbyists – Including Dominion

    A report from July of 2019 indicates Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received thousands of dollars in donations from lobbyists for two of the largest electronic voting machine vendors in the United States – Election Systems & Software and Dominion Voting Systems. Newsweek reported on the donations in noting that McConnell (R-KY) had squashed two separate bills in the Senate addressing election security. The reports were based on an investigation by an outlet called ‘Sludge.’ “Several of the lobbyists working for ES&S and Dominion Voting Systems have recently made contributions to McConnell’s campaign and joint fundraising committee,” Sludge wrote.

    Earlier, The Political Insider reported that Microsoft founder Bill Gates expressed support for shutting down bars and restaurants for up to six months, and indicated lockdowns may continue all the way into 2022. The billionaire Microsoft founder made his sobering warning during an interview with CNN over the weekend. “Well, sadly, the next four to six months could be the worst of the epidemic,” he told anchor Jake Tapper in discussing lockdowns and his support for extreme restrictions such as stay-at-home orders issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom.

    Conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh believes the political landscape in America makes it possible that the nation is “trending toward secession.” “I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” Limbaugh surmised. “I see more and more people asking what in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York?” “What is there that makes us believe that there is enough of us there to even have a chance at winning New York, especially if you’re talking about votes?”

    Why is he asking William Barr of all people for information about an ongoing investigation? Barr hasn't even been conducting the investigation. Bigg's request suggests to me that he's hoping Barr will make another broad public-fooling statement about inclusive findings relating to an investigation that he hasn't even been conducting.

After filling in the required fields, my contact information was not accepted. I received an error: "Request not accepted. Security Risk detected." So, as a registered voter, with no criminal background, I am prohibited from contacting my senator. What's up with this? Are any other Texans who subscribe to true conservative principles receiving the same error? Or is my sharing of Stephen Bannon's War Room and other posts to facebook prohibiting...
