    Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that “boring” President Joe Biden only won the 2020 election because former President Donald Trump lost. Anchor Jon Karl said, “You know, Governor, it’s hard to say stay the course when the answer for are you better off now for so many Americans is no.” Christie said, “If you listened to Secretary Buttigieg, you would have thought we were in the Eisenhower economy, for God’s sake. Here’s the problem. Politicians when they run for office, you don’t always win. Sometimes the other guy loses. Joe Biden’s president because Donald...

    Former Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) said Tuesday on FNC’s “Your World” that he was seriously considering running for president in 2024. On the 2024 presidential election, anchor Neil Cavuto said, “There’s talk that you will be among those candidates. Is that true?” Hogan said, “I’m certainly giving it serious consideration. We’ve been really successful 30 miles outside of Washington, where everything appears to be broken and nothing but dysfunction. I got them to cut taxing eight years in a row, and I had the biggest economic turnaround in America. But we’re taking a close look at it.”

    Tucker Carlson could scarcely believe what he was reporting. It was one of the most dastardly plots ever. Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell about how Joe Biden asked Mike Pence to betray Trump. In discussing classified documents turning up at Mike Pence’s home in Indiana, Carlson explained to viewers that this was part of an anti-Trump strategy gone awry. “So here’s the latest example of unexplained weirdness in the news,” Carlson continued. “Mike Pence, of all people, has just swooped in to save Joe Biden. Yes. Mike Pence, a man so flamboyantly pure, he won’t have dinner with ladies not...

    Monday on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) argued that former President Donald Trump was still his choice for the 2024 Republican presidential primary despite a potentially crowded field, including possible candidates from his home state of South Carolina. According to Graham, some of Trump’s marquee policy achievements could only have been accomplished by Trump. “It seems like the Trump agenda is the agenda for the entire Republican Party, so that — how will other candidates distinguish themselves against Donald Trump if they agree with his policies?” host Sean Hannity asked. “I really don’t know, but I do know this:...
  • Nikki Haley To Launch Presidential Campaign Against Trump As Soon As Next Month

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | Cullen Linebargar
    The delusion is strong with this one. A report on Saturday indicates that former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, mired around 3% in GOP Presidential Primary polls, looks ready to launch a quixotic bid next month for the Oval Office anyway. Haley’s senior aides are prepared to assume essential campaign roles once Haley gives the green light. She already possesses the necessary infrastructure thru her prominent political action committee and political nonprofit to build a ground game and campaign operation. Should Haley launch a bid for president as expected, such a move would mark a broken promise to former President...

    Conservative Colorado Republican Ken Buck (R-CO) told NBC News’s Chuck Todd on Friday he is opposed to removing members from committees based on political retaliation. “Do you think? You know, this is something that should be done? And do you think the tit for tat is healthy?” Todd asked on Meet the Press NOW. “I don’t. I think that Nancy Pelosi ruined this institution. I think she ruined it in a lot of different ways. And one of the ways was kicking members off of committees, which hadn’t been done in the past,” replied Buck. “Certainly, their own party has...

    Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton are sidestepping the classified documents controversies embroiling their successors, with staffers saying the former presidents all turned over their materials to the National Archives and Records Administration years ago when they left office. "That process was conducted in 2008 and 2009, and all Presidential records – classified and unclassified – were turned over to the National Archives upon leaving the White House," said Freddy Ford, Bush's spokesperson, when asked what Bush is doing to assess whether he has any classified documents in his possession, in light of recent discoveries that President Joe...

    Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) lectured Americans while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, urging them to accept amnesty for the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens. During a panel discussion alongside Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), and others, Salazar said some form of amnesty is necessary for illegal aliens living across the United States. She said: We need to also give dignity to those people who are in the country and those are the people that I represent. We’re talking about 13 to 15 million people — who are, most of them, Hispanics,...

    Outgoing Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Lead” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was too focused on the Republican Party base to win national office. Hogan said, “The party has been focused on firing up the base, and they have done a terrible job at reaching swing voters in the middle.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is often cited by conservative Republicans as somebody they might want to see run for president. You’ve called him an important voice, one of the important voices for the party. Do you think he would be good at...

    While the incoming House GOP majority will likely eliminate proxy voting, an analysis of all the proxy letters sent to the House Clerk during the 117th Congress reveals that 77% of House GOP members used the practice, with 45 of them having sent more than 20 proxy letters. Furthermore, three of the five most frequent GOP proxy voters initially voted against the proposed rule that allowed for proxy voting to take place in the House. Among the 213 Republican House members in the 117th Congress, 164 of them have submitted at least one proxy letter. In other words, 76.99%, or...

    It should come as no surprise to Utahns or anyone who identifies as conservative that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) did not vote along party lines when it came to the $1.7 trillion spending bill/omnibus package. Well, he did vote along party lines, just not the party with which he is affiliated. Romney took to Twitter to explain his rationale...If you couldn’t stand a political version of a time-share pitch, let me summarize it for you:- It would cost less to pass it this year than next. - Republicans aren’t organized enough to get a speaker together, let alone budgets. -...

    Dubbed "the ugliest omnibus bill ever" by the conservative Wall Street Journal editorial board Wednesday, the massive spending bill includes tens of billions of dollars in new aid to Ukraine along with bipartisan policy changes on Medicaid, new disaster relief funding, and investments in programs addressing child care, nutrition assistance and affordable housing. However, the bill also includes numerous concessions to the Democratic side to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars. (Snip) For the next several days at least, Democrats will still control both chambers, leaving little incentive for Republicans to play along. Graham—like several of his other...

    The Jan. 6 committee takes its place alongside the Watergate panel, the Truman committee and a few other congressional investigations that leave a profound historical mark. While unique, it’s a case study in how to conduct a serious investigation. The careful, exhaustive and private preparation of interviews and gathering evidence set the stage for the compelling public hearings — which left no doubt that the President of the United States attempted a coup to remain in power and sabotage democracy. The panel, led by Democratic chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Republican Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), showed that the Jan. 6 deadly...

    PHOENIX - A judge has thrown out Republican Kari Lake’s challenge of her defeat in the Arizona governor’s race to Democrat Katie Hobbs, rejecting her claim that problems with ballot printers at some polling places on Election Day were the result of intentional misconduct. In a decision Saturday, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson, who was appointed by then-Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, found that the court did not find clear and convincing evidence of the widespread misconduct that Lake had alleged had affected the result of the 2022 general election.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said former President Trump’s political power is “diminished” following his endorsed candidates’ lackluster performance in the midterm elections and vowed to find “quality” candidates for Senate races in 2024. “Here’s what I think has changed: I think the former president’s political clout has diminished,” McConnell said in a interview with NBC News released on Friday. Despite predictions of a “red wave” in this November’s midterm elections, Republicans lost ground in the Senate and only managed to secure a slim majority in the House. Many in the GOP have since placed the blame on Trump...

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (TND) — Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, is convinced he would win a second term in the U.S. Senate if he runs again, despite failing twice at becoming the Republican nominee for president and being known for breaking from his GOP colleagues during certain standoffs with Democrats. "I’m convinced that if I run, I win," Romney told Politico while discussing his potential bid for reelection that would come up in 2024. Probably the most noteworthy divergence Romney has taken from his own party was when he voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump, becoming the...

    Outgoing Senate Appropriations Committee Vice Chair Richard Shelby (R-AL) slipped $656 million worth of earmarks into the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill. Congressional leaders dropped the $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus spending bill at 1:30 a.m. ET, giving lawmakers little time to digest the implications of the mammoth legislation. While the bill may have many major reforms that are readily apparent, lawmakers also slipped hard-to-find earmarks into the bill. Many lawmakers, such as Shelby, are retiring and face few political repercussions for pushing a bill that contains many special interest carveouts and increases the deficit.

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) requested at least 19 earmarks totaling over $60 million in the $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus bill. If the bill passes both chambers of Congress, Murkowski’s state of Alaska will be granted by Sen.
