  • Rand Paul warns ONE THIRD of Republicans will leave the party if McConnell allows Trump to be convicted in impeachment trial as president plans revenge on 10 GOP lawmakers who voted against him

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) declared that roughly 'a third' of all Republicans would leave the party if GOP senators team up with Democrats to impeach President Donald Trump as the lame duck president seeks to punish the 10 Republican representatives that voted for impeachment. Speaking with Fox News host Laura Ingraham Friday, Paul claimed that efforts to impeach Trump after he incited the mob last week were 'purely a partisan thing.' 'I didn't agree with the fight that happened last week, and I voted against overturning the election,' Paul said.

  • Flake: GOP Senators Knew Trump Claims of ‘Wide-Scale Voter Fraud’ Were a ‘Big Lie’

    Former Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that all the Republican senators who forwarded President Donald Trump’s claims there was “wide-scale voter fraud” in the 2020 presidential election knew it was a “big lie.” Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “Senator Flake, the Capitol riots were the result of the false election fraud claims that you’ve said Republicans never really believed, but pushed for, quote, ‘rank opportunism.’ Do you think Republican senators like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz bear some responsibility for inciting the insurrection? Should they be expelled in your view, held accountable somehow?”
  • Scarborough: The GOP Is ‘What We Read in the History Books About Hitler'

    Friday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough doubled down on his argument that the Republican Party is “what we read in the history books about Hitler.” This comes in the wake of a group of President Donald Trump supporters rioting at the U.S. Capitol and members of Congress saying they fear for their lives for voting to impeach Trump. Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, said the party that belongs to Trump is “intimidating” opponents “with threats of death” and violence in support of a “fascist president.”

    Spouse of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Cindy McCain said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that the Republican Party has lost its way. Co-host Meghan McCain asked her mom, “The Arizona GOP is in talks to censure you as well as a former senator Jeff Flake and our wonderful governor Doug Ducey, and I think I’m actually included in the censuring because it said part of the McCain family. I don’t know what’s going on. I’m horrified and disgusted. Why do you think there’s so much anger at our family and Jeff Flake and Doug Ducey?”

    Kenneth R. Timmerman today properly reminds us that it is leaders, not institutions, that have betrayed us. James S. Corum reminds us today of the deep bench that resides in the party below the level of top congressional leaders — and the formidable power of state governments and political organizations under GOP control. Discarding these tools amounts to unilateral disarmament just as we need them in the critical elections ahead. Leaders can be influenced and discarded, but institutions take a long time to build. We have state-level redistricting in immediate prospect and a midterm election in less than 22 months....

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will not join efforts to remove House Republican Conference chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her leadership role in the wake of her vote to impeach President Donald Trump over last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to a report. A spokesman for McCarthy confirmed the news to the Hill amid calls from several House conservatives for Cheney to be ousted. On Wednesday, Cheney was one of ten House Republicans to vote in favor of impeachment, with the measure passing by a count of 232 to 197. McCarthy voted against the move.

    A handful of Republican Georgia state senators, who promoted claims that President-elect Joe Biden was not duly elected, were stripped of their committee chairmanships. Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, who is a Republican, made the call on Tuesday, just days into the state legislature's winter session. State Sen. Brandon Beach of Alpharetta was stripped of his role as the chairman of the Transportation Committee, while state Sen. Burn Jones of Jackson was removed as the head of the Insurance and Labor Committee. Both were completely removed from their respective committees. Meanwhile, state Sen. Matt Brass of Newnan, who was removed as...

    It seems Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has ticked off Republicans in her state. The at-large representative voted with Democrats to impeach President Trump following last week's riot at the Capitol. The FBI is only beginning its investigation of last week's riot, but the lack of findings didn't stop Liz Cheney from joining House Democrats to hold the president responsible for the violence. Following Cheney's vote to impeach the president, the Wyoming Republican Party said in a statement that never before has the state party seen "this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans." According to the party, "the anger...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on Wednesday that she does not want to hear the “coup-supporting GOP talk about ‘blue lives’ ever again” in the wake of the Capitol protests, concluding that Republicans care more about “preserving the social order and the mythology of whiteness” than democracy. “I don’t want to hear these coup-supporting GOP talk about ‘blue lives’ ever again,” the New York lawmaker told her 11.5 million Twitter followers Wednesday afternoon.

    The wind in Wyoming has been horrendous today—with gusts up to 65 miles per hour. That is nothing compared to the whirlwind created by Representative Cheney’s announcement that she would be voting to impeach President Trump, and her subsequent follow-through of doing just that. There has not been a time during our tenure when we have seen this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans, with the anger and frustration being palpable in the comments we have received. Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any...

    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...

    One House Republican predicted Wednesday that as many as half of the House Republican conference might vote to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the House Republican Conference chair. Politico’s Melanie Zanona reported that one House Republican not affiliated with the House Freedom Caucus said as many as half of the House Republican Conference may support ousting Cheney as the third-ranking Republican over her support for impeaching President Donald Trump. LinkCheney rebuffed calls for her to resign or be ousted from her position in House Republican leadership. “I’m not going anywhere,” she told Politico Wednesday. “This is a vote of...

    November’s election revealed that the class realignment of our two parties is solidifying. Democrats have increasingly emerged as the party of upscale suburbs, of Silicon Valley and Hollywood and Wall Street, of the owners of capital and the professionals who service them. The GOP, meanwhile, is trending toward a multiracial working-class party, preferred by those who generally make their living by toil. So why are conservatives fretting about corporate America cutting off the GOP, a process merely accelerated by last week’s (disgraceful) mob assault on the Capitol? Did they think building a working-class party was going to be painless? That...

    House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Wednesday rejected calls to resign from her leadership post — prompted by her support for impeaching President Donald Trump over last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol. “I’m not going anywhere,” Cheney told Politico reporter Melanie Zanona. “This is a vote of conscience. It’s one where there are different views in our conference.”

    Longtime Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) has joined a growing number of House Republicans in saying he plans to vote to impeach President Trump on Wednesday following a deadly riot by a mob of his supporters at the U.S. Capitol last week. “Today the President characterized his inflammatory rhetoric at last Wednesday’s rally as ‘totally appropriate,’ and he expressed no regrets for last week’s violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol,” Upton said in a statement Tuesday.
