  • Michael Steele I'm a Republican voting for Joe Biden over Trump. Because I'm an American first.

    So here we are, faced with the re-election of President Donald Trump and the prospect of a nation still struggling against Covid-19, reeling from the ravages of a flattened economy and in pain from civil unrest and our genuine concern for how we treat one another. I, of course, disagree with Biden on many issues and policies, sometimes vigorously; and it is my fervent hope that he will pursue policies that will help our country heal. But this election is not about those issues or policies. Rather, it is about the course of a nation and the character of her...

    A granddaughter of the Rev. Billy Graham, Jerushah Duford is a committed evangelical Christian who describes herself as “pro-life.” For most of her life, she voted Republican. Yet this year, she is voting for Joe Biden and is encouraging fellow Christians to distance themselves from a president who she says is trying “to hijack our faith for votes.”
  • Trump berates Ben Sasse as being the 'least effective of our 53 Republican Senators' who has gone back to his 'stupid and obnoxious ways' after politician said the president 'kisses dictator's butts' in leaked audio

    UK Daily Mail ^ | October 17 2020 | MATTHEW WRIGHT FOR DAILYMAIL.COM and GEOFF EARLE, DEPUTY U.S. POLITICAL EDITOR FOR DAILYMAIL.COM
    President Donald Trump slammed Sen. Ben Sasse as being one of the 'least effective' Republican Senators after the Nebraska politician asserted that the president 'kisses dictators' butts' in a recently released audio recording. In scathing tweets posted on Saturday morning, Trump claimed that the Nebraska senator had gone back to his 'stupid and obnoxious ways,' even after he had done so much to help the state. 'The least effective of our 53 Republican Senators, and a person who truly doesn’t have what it takes to be great, is Little Ben Sasse of Nebraska, a State which I have gladly done...

    George w. bush doesn’t like Donald Trump. He doesn’t like how Trump is behaving as president. He clearly doesn’t like the division in the country Trump has fostered. He knows American democracy is under threat. He has tried to be reassuring, telling people that America has survived rough times before—a way of using insistent optimism to diplomatically acknowledge the rough time the nation is going through now.

    Media magnate Rupert Murdoch has predicted privately that Democratic nominee Joe Biden will defeat President Donald Trump in the presidential election in a landslide victory, the Daily Beast reported Thursday. -snip- Murdoch has appeared to enjoy unhindered access to the White House, but has not spoken with Trump lately — at least for several weeks, sources confided to the Daily Beast — after Murdoch grew tired of Trump’s unending grievances about negative coverage from Fox News. Murdoch has griped about Trump in the past, suggesting in a tweet ahead of the 2016 presidential election that then-candidate Donald Trump had been...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is stressing that the country’s politics has “moved away from the spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation.” And the 2012 GOP presidential nominee warns that the "rabid attacks kindle the conspiracy mongers and the haters" to launch "dangerous action” such as the recent kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Romney, the most vocal Republican critic of President Trump in Congress, took to Twitter on Tuesday to take aim at the president.

    The political future of Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey is unknown, according to a report today, indicating that he may not run for reelection or for governor of Pennsylvania in 2022. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the news Sunday, citing two people familiar with his plans. While the 58-year-old Republican senator is expected to serve out his current term, he is not expected to seek another term or to run for governor, for which he was seen as a likely GOP candidate, according to the Inquirer. Toomey is expected to make an announcement Monday morning, spokesman Steve Kelly said. He has served...

    President Trump's new Supreme Court nomination has some Republicans fearfully remembering past (and current) justices who have changed their spots. The liberals' worst nightmare has come to pass: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died during the Trump administration. Many supporters had urged her to retire during Obama's tenure so he could appoint her leftist successor. But with arrogant defiance, Ginsburg stayed on the bench, certain, no doubt, that President Hillary Clinton would name her successor. Reality's one tough customer. Now President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We'll let all the others recount her unimpeachable credentials. Suffice to...

    Retired four-star Gen. Stanley McChrystal has endorsed Joe Biden for the White House, citing his time working with the former vice president under the Obama administration and saying the Democratic nominee is "someone that you can trust." McChrystal, speaking on MSNBC Thursday morning, said Biden “is humble enough to listen to experts, is humble enough to respect people who serve and have served.” “I think that he would surround himself with an effective team of good people, I think he would set a tone in which he would bring out the best of people. Again, not everyone will agree with...

    Former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Marc Racicot said this week that he would that he will not vote for President Trump in November. “I regret that I will cause consternation perhaps in some corners, but even as a Republican, I will not be supporting Donald Trump for president, and I will not be voting for him,” Racicot, who is also a former Republican governor of Montana, said during a Tuesday interview on Yellowstone Public Radio. “That means I will be voting for Joe Biden for president.” Racicot did not provide details about why he was choosing to endorse the...

    ---SNIP--- I actually consider it a point of personal pride that I’m recognized for being among the first Republicans to reject Donald Trump. It was way back in December 2015. I told NBC’s Chuck Todd that day that I could never support Trump. I said then that he was an embarrassment to the Republican Party and our country. I said he belittles, demeans, and ridicules people who disagree with him, and that I’ve never thought that loud, obnoxious, and simpleminded solutions to complex problems are the kind of qualities we want in a president. I believe that earned me my...

    Two former Republican lawmakers wrote an op-ed on Friday explaining why they are supporting Democrat Joe Biden instead of President Trump in November, arguing Trump is "an ill-formed man who lacks basic self-control and shows no semblance of inner character." Former Reps. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii) and Mickey Edwards (R-Okla.) in an opinion for Roll Call condemned Trump's "childish name-calling, crude behavior and immature narcissism.".... Djou and Edwards said the Democratic presidential candidate is "not a perfect man, but he is a man of humble decency."

    Nine Ohio counties are now under red alert in the state’s coronavirus advisory system, with Cuyahoga County continuing a step lower at orange for the the sixth consecutive week, Gov. Mike DeWine announced Thursday. The red counties because of growing or lingering COVID-19 spread include the addition of five this week - Ashland, Delaware, Pike, Scioto and Stark. Four others remain there from the previous week - Butler, Mercer, Montgomery and Putnam. A week ago there were five red counties, the lowest number since DeWine introduced the four-level advisory system July 2.... Each county is graded on seven criteria. Meeting...

    he George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened seven years ago and anchors the southeastern corner of campus at Southern Methodist University, where I teach history. In late November 2016, I took a tour of the facility with five college friends who were visiting from the East Coast. The recent presidential election was much on our minds as we wandered through the building, contemplating various artifacts from Bush’s two terms in office. Although we were hardly fans of his presidency, one of my pals—fearful, like everyone in our group, of a Trump administration—got misty-eyed when reflecting upon Bush’s obvious...

    Gov. Mike DeWine, Republican of Ohio, has stepped in it again. Dr. Amy Acton resigned as director of the Ohio Health Department in June and then again in August as the governor's health adviser. DeWine subsequently nominated Dr. Joan Duwve to head the state's health department. In nominating Duwve, who most recently served as director of public health in South Carolina, DeWine is quoted as saying: "Dr. Duwve shares my passion for and commitment to children's issues and many other pressing public health issues[.] " This turned into another embarrassment for the governor. Going back to Acton, during her tenure...

    Former Gov. Rick Snyder in an op-ed published by USA Today on Thursday endorsed Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, making waves as a Republican who isn’t backing incumbent President Donald Trump. He’s one of a number of Republicans who are speaking out against Trump’s reelection, according to Jeff Timmer, a senior advisor with The Lincoln Project, a group of disillusioned Republicans working to defeat Trump and his supporters in Congress. “There’s never been a time like this when so many members of an incumbent president’s party have said ’vote for the other guy,’” Timmer said on a taping of WKAR’s...

    Hoosiers have been ordered to continue wearing masks for another 30 days. With the first mask mandate set to expire, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb decided to extend the mandatory face-covering order through Sept. 25. "On one hand we're pleased that we've been holding steady, steady Eddy Indiana here in terms of positivity rate," Gov. Holcomb said. "We don't want that to trend up. We want that to trend down even more." Indiana will also remain in 'stage 4.5' of the state's reopening plan. Effectively, nothing changes in terms of capacity to restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.
