    American Greatness ^ | January 20, 2023 | By Matt Braynard
    While working on combat veteran and Gold Star husband Joe Kent’s campaign for Washington state’s 3rd Congressional District, I knew by early October we were in trouble. We had overcome a $10 million deficit in the primary—owing almost entirely to Republicans backing the incumbent—but that came at a cost. We had exhausted our $3 million war chest and went into the general election broke. Our Democratic opponent emerged from the primary unscathed with about $3 million cash on hand. We had about six weeks before voting began and we were ultimately outspent 6-to-1. While Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC spent a...

    *snip* Cheney will not depart Congress empty-handed. During her six years in Congress, she has become very wealthy. Breitbart News reported in August that Cheney’s net worth ballooned from an estimated $7 million when she first took office in 2017 to possibly more than $44 million in 2020. Depending on the specifics of her latest financial disclosure form, Cheney’s net worth could have skyrocketed up to 600 percent in Congress. According to her 2020 Personal Financial Disclosure form, Cheney declared a net worth between $10,422,023 and $44,140,000, stemming from assets valued between $10,432,024 and $44,155,000. She reported no earned income,...

    President Biden will travel to Kentucky on Wednesday to tout infrastructure investments and his broader economic plan, and he’ll be joined by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the White House said Sunday. Biden will head to Kentucky one day after the a new GOP House majority is sworn in to speak about “how his economic plan is rebuilding our infrastructure, creating good-paying jobs that don’t require a four-year degree, and revitalizing communities left behind,” the White House said.

    The Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Thursday, sending the bill to the White House for Joe Biden to scrawl his “X” and transform it into law (see Senate Approves 2023 National Defense Authorization Act). The White House hints that it may not sign the bill because one provision forbids the Department of Defense from requiring members of the Armed Forces to receive the COVID vaccine. This “vaccine,” we now know, is barely prophylaxis. It doesn’t prevent people from getting so sick that they require hospitalization (CDC: 39% of hospitalizations are vaxxed and boosted), and it doesn’t stop...

    The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security held a hearing Thursday on finding a solution to gun violence, and the difference of opinion between Democrats and Republicans was put on full display. Passions ran high given the sensitivity of the issues involved, as liberal lawmakers focused on weapons and conservatives on the people who use them. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-La., a former judge who handled felony cases, was in the latter group and focused on the need to instill morality in people, citing Judeo-Christian principles. He went so far as to say it is the bedrock of...

    With Republicans set to be the majority in the House in January, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex) is severely disappointed in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken) who seems intent on giving Democrats everything they want during the “lame-duck” period between the elections and the start of the next session. “Rather than wait until a Republican-led House can serve as a counterweight to the Democrats’ spending spree, McConnell seems determined to help them pass another gargantuan appropriation that can only worsen the inflation the nation is currently experiencing,” Cruz complained. McConnell defended the accommodation, saying that “we cannot risk the possibility...
  • GOP snakes have fooled us for years – when will we learn?

    I absolutely abhor snakes. I've often mused to myself that instead of Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, Astra Zeneca et al. conjuring up toxins that are deadly poisons designed to bring about the damnable fantasy of decreased global population vis-à-vis pharmaceutical extermination centers, it would be nice if they combined their efforts and developed a substance that would kill all snakes immediately while being completely harmless to all flora, fauna, animal and human life. Which brings me to my contempt for the Republican elapid Paul Ryan and all Republicans like him. Disgusting and offensive are specific traits possessed by Ryan...

    Pennsylvania Inquirer ^ | 11/28/2022 | Andrew Seidman
    As former President Donald Trump pursues another bid for the White House, a new poll offers fresh evidence that Pennsylvania Republicans may be considering an alternative: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis leads Trump, 45% to 40%, in a hypothetical head-to-head 2024 primary election, according to a survey of Pennsylvania Republican voters. Those figures include people who said they would “definitely” or “probably” support the candidates. The survey was commissioned by Commonwealth Partners Chamber of Entrepreneurs, a Harrisburg-based group that promotes free markets and conservative policies. “This poll shows what’s become abundantly clear in the past two years: It’s time to...

Watch as Mark breaks down the numbers and statistics about why a red wave was unlikely in 2022, but why the numbers help him hold out hope for 2024. Did you catch red wave fever? Did you vote?

    Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that former President Donald Trump was not on the ballot in the midterms after the GOP underperformed. Anchor Shannon Bream said, “Let’s talk 2024 because it is already here. Trump is expected to make an announcement on Tuesday. You have been an ally and supporter of his.” Bream asked, “Is his announcement on Tuesday a good thing or bad thing for the GOP?” Banks said, “Donald Trump remains a very popular figure in the Republican Party in each corner of the country. And remember when he was...

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki (R) on Sunday said former President Trump is “tearing apart the Republican party” after the GOP failed to win control of the Senate and underperformed in races across the country. “The problem is Donald Trump. The sooner he goes away, the quicker we will have the new Republican Party,” Pataki told Eric Shawn on Fox News. “He’s had his time and now he is tearing apart the Republican Party since the election.”

    Lamenting the reality the Senate will remain in Democrats' control for the next two years, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., is calling for an overhaul of the establishment Republican Party in Washington, D.C. "The old party is dead," Hawley tweeted Saturday night. "Time to bury it. Build something new." Hawley was reacting to the news Republican Adam Laxalt's votes have been overtaken by Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., clinching the Senate majority for Democrats. "Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night," Hawley tweeted earlier this week. "When your 'agenda' is to cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to Schumer on gun...

    Lara Trump issued a dark warning to Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis saying it would be “nicer” for him to stay out of the 2024 race for the GOP presidential nomination. The daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump appeared on Sky News Australia to boost his prospective candidacy that’s expected to be announced on Tuesday. The announcement appears to be set to go ahead despite Mr Trump being urged by allies to delay his campaign start until after the Georgia Senate runoff on 6 December. “I think he's a smart enough guy to know that it would be great to...

    Former President Donald Trump – who himself has come under fire for Republicans’ lackluster performance in the midterm elections – is blaming Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for the party’s apparent failure to flip the chamber’s majority in its favor. “Mitch McConnell, the Republicans Broken Down Senate Leader, does nothing about this,” Trump on social media Friday night. “He’s too busy spending vast amounts of money on bad Senator Lisa [Murkowski] of Alaska when Kelly [Tshibaka] is FAR better.” Yet Trump’s own spending choices in this year’s midterm elections have also drawn criticism.
