    Conservative efforts to downplay the events of Jan. 6, 2021, and allege the political “weaponization” of the government seem to ratchet up with each passing week. But rarely have they reached such a fever pitch, at least at the official level, as they did Wednesday with Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.).

    John Rust, who announced a run for U.S. Senate against U.S. Rep. Jim Banks in the 2024 Republican primary, filed a lawsuit Tuesday asking a judge to declare an Indiana law that would prevent him from getting on voting ballots unconstitutional. Rust, who is the former board chair of Seymour-based egg producer Rose Acre Farms, filed the lawsuit against Secretary of State Diego Morales, the Indiana Election Commission and Jackson County Republican Party Chair Amanda Lowery. Rust told IndyStar Tuesday he hopes the lawsuits allows Hoosiers that identify with their party to run for office without following requirements in Indiana...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence warned this week that if Russian forces are not repelled in Ukraine, U.S. military service members may have to step up to the fight. "I’m convinced that if the Ukrainian military doesn’t stop and repel that Russian invasion, it’s not going to be too long before that Russian army crosses a border that our men and women in uniform are going to have to go and fight under our NATO Treaty," Mr. Pence said during a town hall-style interview with NewsNation on Wednesday. "I truly believe it. Whether that's Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, ... Poland, I...

    How can educated men like former Vice President Mike Pence, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and former Texas Representative Will Hurd be so stupid? (I am leaving out former Attorney General Bill Barr since he’s busy looking at bridges.) They have spent much of their lives in Republican politics and yet have a minuscule understanding of the largest grassroots Republican movement in modern history that is embraced and endorsed by more than half of Republicans—primarily the “base.”No Republican can win the nomination without the MAGA base. America First Patriots stand with Donald Trump just...

    Only three in ten Republican primary voters hold favorable views of former Vice President Mike Pence, earning him the second-worst rating of any Republican presidential candidate behind former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), according to a national poll. His (Pence) favorability has dropped considerably since April’s Wall Street Journal poll, when 54 percent of the population saw him positively and 35 percent viewed him negatively. This marks a staggering 52-point swing in the wrong direction in five months’ time. Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), with a net favorability rating of -55 among Republicans, is in even worse shape than Pence. Only...
  • Buttigieg’s ‘Equity’ Team Seeks to End ‘Racist’ Private Car Ownership: ‘All Cars Are Bad’

    Democrat President Joe Biden’s “woke” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has formed a team of “equity experts” that seeks to end private car ownership. Buttigieg has been busy allocating tax dollars to appoint a group of “leading experts” to advise him on “transportation equity.” Several members of Buttigieg’s Marxist “equity” team argue that cars cause “climate change” and “promote racism” and therefore should be phased out. The target is not just traditional gas-powered vehicles, however, as the “experts” insist that “all cars are bad,” including EVs.

    Focus on the signal, not the noise,” is a phrase that might as well have been coined by Steve Bannon given how frequently he and his acolytes make use of it. At this stage in the game, it should be the mantra of the MAGA movement writ large; for the hour is already late, there is a mountain of work left to do to haul President Trump over the finish line: navigating a corrupt, weaponized justice system; dealing with rigged election procedures; combatting both soft and overt censorship by mainstream networks and social media – and that is just the...

    Former President Donald Trump dubbed his former running mate turned campaign rival “Liddle Mike Pence” over the weekend and contended he never directed Pence to put him “above the Constitution” as the former vice president has claimed. Trump referred to Pence with the newly-minted “Liddle” moniker in multiple Truth Social posts, with the first coming Saturday after Pence was critical of Trump following his latest indictment in connection to the January 6 Capitol riot: WOW, it’s finally happened!

    Voters recently confronted former Vice President Mike Pence during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, accusing him of being a “sellout.”According to video posted by ABC’s Kelsey Walsh, a dozen supporters of former President Donald Trump approached Pence and yelled at him, stating that he is a “traitor” and “sellout.”“Why’d you sell out the people,” one supporter could be heard asking, followed by the question, “Why didn’t you uphold the Constitution” — a likely reference to Pence certifying the 2020 election results.“I upheld the constitution,” Pence retorted, later yelling, “Read it!”A dozen Trump supporters approached Mike Pence’s vehicle as he...

    John Lauro, an attorney for former President Donald Trump, said former Vice President Mike Pence could save Trump from potentially facing life in prison as well as the death penalty if he testifies. Lauro noted that Pence could serve as “one of our best witnesses” should he testify in the case against Trump. This comes after the former Vice President appeared on CBS’ “Face The Nation,” where he told host Margaret Brennan that he has no plans to testify against Trump but will if the law asks him to. “I have no plans to testify, but people can be confident...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence, a candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump and his lawyers asked him to “reject” the 2020 presidential vote. Anchor Dana Bash said, “I’m sure you’ve heard the former president’s lawyers saying that he, quote, ultimately asked only that you pause in counting the electoral ballots. I want to be clear. Did the former president ask you to pause or did he at any point ask you to overturn the election and keep him as president?” Pence said, “Well, you can look...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence has met the requirements to qualify for the first Republican presidential nomination debate, his campaign tells Fox News. Pence’s 2024 presidential campaign said on Monday that earlier in the day they crossed the 40,000-donor threshold — one of two criteria set by the Republican National Committee for GOP White House hopefuls to reach the debate stage. Pence had already passed the polling threshold mandated by the RNC. The former vice president’s political team said they reached out to inform the RNC that Pence had qualified and spotlighted that they were the first campaign to submit...

    Beginning in the summer of 2020, when myriad states, legally and illegally, changed their voting rules in a way that removed all safeguards against fraud, it was clear that there might be problems in November. Then, on election night, six major precincts — election outcome–changing precincts — stopped counting votes altogether. When you add in all the other evidence adduced in subsequent weeks showing fraud (including Biden's unbelievably soaring vote count long after the election ended), there was good reason to question the election. Mike Pence has now conceded that he believes he could at least have opened the path...

    The aftermath of the latest Donald Trump indictment has set off a political dogfight, with Mike Pence blasting 'crackpot lawyers' advising his former boss – and Rudy accusing the former vice president of being bossed by his wife. Pence provided some of his most pronounced criticism of Trump this week following his bombshell grand jury indictment. 'Sadly, the president was surrounded by a group of crackpot lawyers that kept telling him what his itching ears wanted to hear,' Pence said. That was a dig that Giuliani, a former Trump who has been identified as 'co-conspirator 1' in the indictment, took...

    Pence has repeatedly maintained he lacked the constitutional authority to send the elections results back to the contested states for review and insisted he saw no evidence of voter fraud swaying the outcome of the 2020 election. Special Counsel Jack Smith's most recent indictment of former President Donald Trump repeatedly referenced former Vice President Mike Pence objecting to Trump's efforts to overturn the election and insisting that the vice president had no authority to halt the electoral certification process. Pence has repeatedly maintained he lacked the constitutional authority to send the elections results back to the contested states for review...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence didn't parse words when reacting to former President Donald Trump's indictment by Special Counsel Jack Smith on Tuesday. In a statement released following Trump's indictment on charges related to the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol and efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, Pence accused Trump of putting himself over the Constitution, and said a Trump candidacy would serve as a distraction from President Biden's "disastrous" record. "Today's indictment serves as an important reminder: anyone who puts himself over the Constitution should never be President of the United States," Pence said. "I...
