  • Trump jumps into a divisive battle over the Republican Party — with a threat to start a ‘MAGA Party’

    PALM BEACH, Fla. — Former president Donald Trump threw himself back into politics this weekend by publicly endorsing a devoted and divisive acolyte in Arizona who has embraced his false election conspiracy theories and entertained the creation of a new “MAGA Party.” In a recorded phone call, he offered his “complete and total endorsement” for another term for Arizona state party chairwoman Kelli Ward, a lightning rod who has sparred with the state’s Republican governor, been condemned by the business community and overseen a recent flight in party registrations. She narrowly won reelection, by a margin of 51.5 percent to...

    President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said that as a member of the president's defense team in his upcoming impeachment trial he's preparing to argue that the president's claims of voter fraud did not constitute incitement to violence because the claims are true. "They basically claimed that anytime [Trump] says voter fraud, voter fraud — or I do, or anybody else — we're inciting violence; that those words are fighting words because it's totally untrue," Giuliani told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. "Well, if you can prove that it's true, or at least true enough so it's...

    We See the Truth: Trump Has Not Done Enough Damage. Now exposed criminally corrupt liar, Lisa Murkowski says: "He has caused enough damage." But, SHOCKINGLY, she's exposed herself as working to prevent public exposure and fully proper acknowledgement of SYSTEMIC ELECTION FRAUD that SHE KNOWS EXISTS and of which we ALREADY SEE THE PROOFS. Instead of doing the right thing, she's voted to ensure that SYSTEMIC ELECTION FRAUD fully succeeds in working its corruption... while assuming we will PRETEND to not see it, as she is pretending, just expecting we will not see it, as long as SHE PRETENDS to...

    Republican senators say they feel a sense of growing regret over not standing up to President Trump sooner — a day after a violent mob ransacked the Capitol building in one of the darkest and most humiliating days in U.S. history. One Republican senator who requested anonymity to discuss his conversations with GOP colleagues acknowledged GOP lawmakers should have served as a stronger check on the president over the past four years

    Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Thursday hailed the "extraordinary gains" for the United States during President Trump’s time in office and warned Republicans not to "shy away" from them -- while at the same time calling his post-Election Day conduct "deeply disappointing.""President Trump has not always chosen the right words. He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time," she told a Republican National Committee dinner in Florida. "He was badly wrong with his words yesterday. And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by...

    In a remarkable speech from the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch castigated his fellow Republicans who challenged Arizona's election results, arguing they were subverting the Constitution by attempting to overturn the election results. "I've served 36 years in the Senate. This will be the most important vote I've ever cast," McConnell said. "The voters, the courts and the states have all spoken. They've all spoken. If we overrule them, it will damage our republic forever." -snip McConnell, who had urged his members not to challenge to the results, addressed senators as they gaveled in to debate the objection. He...

    Vice President Mike Pence is expected to attend Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration later this month after overseeing Wednesday’s chaotic certification of the president-elect’s Electoral College win. Three sources close to Pence said he would likely make an appearance at the Jan. 20 event in a show of support for the peaceful transition of power. The decision to attend, they said, became easier after President Donald Trump publicly criticized Pence leading up to, and following, his refusal to stop the certification.

    The Mark Levin show ^ | 1/6/21 | Mark Levin
    As an American who reveres our country, our founding, and our Constitution, I am appalled at the election of Raphael Warnock. His beliefs, as declared over the course of decades, about this country, race, Israel, and a host of other issues are frightening. As a Jew, Warnock’s relentless anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements are shocking, yet they represent a growing view within the Democrat Party, the Left, and the media. And those statements were never condemned by Democrat Party leaders and the media. In fact, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaigned hard for Warnock, and this morning the media are touting...

    With control for the United States Senate up for grabs, veteran GOP strategist Karl Rove, a Fox News contributor, joined Fox News Radio's "Guy Benson Show" where he laid out the pathways for incumbent Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. -snip- Rove predicts that Republicans are slightly favored to win both runoffs, and that election day turnout for Republicans is key, saying, "I think the Republicans are likely to hold on to it narrowly because I think the turnout is going to be higher than a million, and at a million if the Republicans are getting the 62 percent...

    If they won’t stand against a rigged presidential election, they certainly won’t stand against Joe Biden and the Democrats.It should surprise no one that the Republican Senate—the most inept collection of politicians in recent memory—will end the Trump era in a state of disarray, discord, and dysfunction.What Americans have witnessed over the past four years, as I’ve written several times, is a textbook example of political power squandered. Republican senators, rather than maximize the unexpected gift of a Republican White House, Senate, and House of Representatives to advance long-promised “conservative” policies, wasted the opportunity while giving political cover to both...

    Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) called the vote on January sixth to accept the Electoral College's votes for Joe Biden to be the nation's next president "the most consequential vote I have ever cast in my career in the Senate." McConnell asserted that "the issue of whether the election was fair or stolen is, in my mind, secondary to the preservation of the bipartisan comity that is essential to the peaceful transfer of power. Other presidential elections have been stolen—most notably the one held in 1960. In contrast to President Trump's post-election behavior, Republican Vice-President Richard Nixon put the...

    With Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell having congratulated Joe Biden on his ostensible “victory,” the usual suspects in the establishment are licking their chops under the delusion that the GOP has any national viability absent Trump and the agenda he ran on in 2016. Toward this end, there is already struggle for leadership underway within the Republican party, both literally and ideologically. And Washington’s toxic, failing establishment already knows who it wants to win: Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, daughter of George W. Bush’s vice president. This cannot be allowed to happen. Liz Cheney is the older of Dick’s two daughters,...
  • Iowa GOP swamp monster Kochel calling on President Trump to concede, says Biden will be President

    We have told you before about “Republican” strategist David Kochel. Kochel has been an integral part of the Branstad-Reynolds machine. He was Mitt Romney’s top Iowa guy. He targeted Congressman Steve King for years. He lobbied for legalized homosexual marriage for years before it happened. Before Joe Biden and Barack Obama got on board, even. Four years ago he proclaimed himself a Never Trumper. He has gone so far as to suggest Trump coordinated with Putin and it was “maybe treasonous.”

    When President Trump refused to concede the election to Joe Biden in the immediate aftermath of Nov. 3, we argued that he had the right to mount legal challenges if he believed there had been irregularities, mistakes, fraud, or all three. Democratic objections and outrage were as hypocritical as they were inevitable, coming as they did from a corps that refused to accept the 2016 election result not for days, weeks, or even months, but for four years. But although fair-minded people know there are legitimate procedures for litigation, and that these should be allowed to play out, there is...

    The Lincoln Project, a liberal Super PAC founded by shlubby white dudes who weren't very good at sports growing up but compensated for that as adults by owning people on Twitter, went an abysmal 0-7 in key Senate races this cycle despite spending almost $12 million in support of Democratic candidates. In addition to trolling President Donald Trump by running ads in Washington, D.C., the Lincoln Project bros also targeted seven U.S. Senate races. Media outlets published "exclusive" reports about the group's ad campaigns as if they mattered:

    Revolver ^ | Oct 25 | Revolver
    Republicans in Congress claim they are outraged after Facebook and Twitter worked to suppress the New York Post’s bombshell story exposing Hunter and Joe Biden’s lies about Hunter’s dealings in Ukraine and China. But the majority of them are faking it. Republicans have had years and countless opportunities to put real pressure on Big Tech. Even at this very moment, Republicans are refusing to take actions that would protect Americans from the predatory global tech elite. As they have for more than a decade, Congressional Republicans are using Twitter as a smokescreen, a substitute for real action. Immediately after Facebook...

    LOS ANGELES - A recent Military Times poll found support for President Donald Trump by active-duty service members waning as a majority expressed a preference for former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of the 2020 election. According to a survey of 1,018 active-duty soldiers who submitted responses between late July and early August, 42% said they “strongly disapprove of the last 4 years with Trump at the helm.
