    “I think maybe even more important is that these legal challenges to the outcome and the attacks on our voting system really need to stop, in my opinion,” Ryan said during Bank of America’s virtual European Credit Conference. “The outcome will not be changed, and it will only serve to undermine our faith in our system of government, our faith in our democracy. Ryan then took aim at President Trump’s legal team, accusing them of “doing damage to our country, to our democratic institutions and norms,” by challenging the election results in key battleground states. The former House Speaker stated:...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) reportedy said Monday that the outcome of the presidential election is "becoming increasingly clear," and that "evidence of a systemic problem ... seem to be wanting." "Obviously, the outcome is becoming increasingly clear," Cornyn said outside a food bank in Austin, Texas, according to an Austin American-Statesman staffer. "It seems like evidence of a systemic problem with our election seem to be wanting at this point," the senator added. .... On Sunday, Cornyn said in a tweet that Biden should be allowed to receive intelligence briefings that are being blocked by Trump's General Services Administration.
  • Breaking — Michigan officially certifies Biden victory in 3-0 vote

    Breaking — Michigan officially certifies Biden victory in 3-0 voteMichigan’s top elections board on Monday certified Joe Biden’s win in the state’s presidential vote, dealing President Donald Trump yet another blow in his effort to block the Democrat’s national victory. The Michigan Board of State Canvassers certified the popular election results in a 3-0 vote. Republican board member Aaron Van Langevelde voted to certify the votes, while the other GOP member, Norm Shinkle, abstained. Shinkle, who indicated before the meeting that he would oppose certification until after an audit or investigation of the results was conducted, asked the Michigan legislature...
  • Righty fury at Fox News is just conservative fratricide

    For some inexplicable reason, conservatives rush towards fratricide with the same kind of urgency that drives lemmings over the cliff. It’s what they do, even when it’s counterproductive and costly. Conservatism wasn’t made better off by the four-year campaign waged against Speaker Newt Gingrich by some House conservatives who considered him ideologically unreliable. It wasn’t helped by John Boehner’s premature departure from Congress, brought about by political headaches caused by House Republicans on his right flank. A small group of so-called purists on the right even crossed swords with President Ronald Reagan, without whom modern conservatism would have emerged stillborn...

    Apparently, Senator Ben Sasse has not the moral courage to stand behind President Trump in his fight to defend America’s election integrity and the sacrosanct right of the vote. It seems too that Senator Sasse neither gives a rat’s tail about justice. No surprise, since Sasse has from the beginning opposed America’s 45th president. Being anything but shy in expressing disapproval, Sasse often publically ridicules President Trump – and this is why the senator could not move fast enough to get his pointy snout up Joe Biden’s butt to congratulate the geriatric prevaricator on the electoral fraud the Democrats perpetrated...

    Few Republicans have spoken out publicly against President Trump's refusal to concede the election he definitively lost, as he and his legal team continue to promote baseless claims of voter fraud. Mr. Trump's campaign has launched lawsuits in several states won by President-elect Joe Biden alleging voting discrepancies, but nearly all of these challenges have been unsuccessful. Nonetheless, the president's legal team has continued to baselessly claim that fraud occurred. In a rambling, often incoherent news conference on Thursday, the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani falsely said that Democrats were attempting to steal the election... But a few Senate Republicans...

    Longtime GOP adviser Karl Rove will oversee Senate Republicans’ fundraising effort as they fight to keep their majority with the two runoff elections in Georgia, according to a report. The former adviser to President George W. Bush will serve as national finance chairman of the Georgia Battleground Fund, a joint fundraising effort organized by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Politico reported Monday. Rove, who now serves as a Fox News commentator, will be joined by an array of high-profile GOP names, including former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Vice President Dan Quayle and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

    Republican Sen. James Lankford (OK) promised that he would “step in” to the dispute if the President-Elect Joe Biden was not given access to U.S. intelligence briefings by Friday. In a long interview with host Russell Mills for Tulsa radio station KRMG, Lankford discussed the Covid-19 pandemic and the 2020 election. Near the end of the 35-minute discussion, the host pushed Lankford on Trump’s refusal to accept the called race in Biden’s favor. (The relevant portion begins at the 22:45 mark.) “I gotta tell you, national security is a concern,” Mills said. “Because Mr. Biden is not getting the briefings...

    Top Senate Republicans are signaling support for keeping Director Gina Haspel atop the CIA amid speculation that President Trump could fire her out of frustration about some of her decisions related to the Russia investigation. Speculation about Haspel's future has reached a fever pitch amid concerns in Washington that the ousting of Defense Secretary Mark Esper could foretell a larger post-election shakeup. But top GOP senators are signaling that they don't think there's a reason for Trump to fire Haspel, outside of his own personal preference. "Not that I'm aware of, other than you know the president would want somebody...

    Former President George W. Bush congratulated President-elect Joe Biden in a phone call Sunday and said that, while President Donald Trump has the right to pursue legal challenges and recounts, the 2020 race was "fundamentally fair" and "its outcome is clear." The gesture by Bush, the only living former Republican president, was a break from his party's outgoing president, Trump, who has so far refused to concede the race. In the statement, Bush said he had called Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Sunday. "Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Sunday called for the country to "get behind" President-elect Joe Biden and said he has seen no evidence of widespread voter fraud, even as President Donald Trump has pushed for election-related lawsuits and refused to concede the election. "I think we get behind the new president, unless for some reason that's overturned, we get behind the new president and wish him the very best," Romney, who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." While CNN and other networks projected Saturday that Biden will become the 46th President...

He is who he is and he has a relativity relaxed relationship with the truth so he is going to keep on fighting...

    Former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) has filmed an ad for former Vice President Joe Biden, using the spot to urge Republicans to put "country over party" and support the Democratic presidential nominee. “I’ve been a conservative Republican my entire life,” Flake says at the start of the ad released Wednesday, noting the first time he cast a presidential ballot was for Ronald Reagan in 1984. “I’ve never before voted for a Democrat for president.” “But this year, principle and conscience require me to do just that,” the former elected official continues. “I’m voting for Joe Biden.”

    SYCAMORE, Pa. — The one thing all the guys know about Sara Vance is she never cries. Which is why her co-workers — all men — dropped their tools when Vance suddenly broke down in a flood of tears after she failed to shovel coal into a conveyor belt. Pregnant with her first child and just weeks before the due date, she was 1,200 feet below the surface of the earth with no easy way out.
