    ...During his interview with Stephanopoulos, Christie discussed his plans for the upcoming New Jersey Republican primary in June and the November general election. He stated that he doesn’t anticipate having anyone on the primary ballot to support and has no intention of writing himself in. However, he emphasized that he would not support Donald Trump under any circumstances in the November election... Christie also mentioned that No Labels had yet to approach him about being on the organization’s presidential ticket, despite previous statements from founding chairman Joe Lieberman. While Christie did not explicitly reject running under the No Labels banner,...

    The day after he had resigned as chair of the Arizona Republican Party and as his plans for a huge Donald Trump fundraiser in Phoenix collapsed in chaos, Jeff DeWit melted down. 'This place is a sinking ship,' he told stunned staff at party headquarters on Thursday, according to a source familiar with his words. 'You should all get out now.' Factions are battling for control. Its campaign war chest is depleted after Trump dropped out of its biggest fundraising event of the year. And Democrats see a chance to turn the purple battleground state a deeper shade of blue...

    Party officials from across the state gathered in Phoenix for a long scheduled meeting and to select a replacement for Jeff DeWit, who stood down after DailyMail.com published a recording of the moment he apparently offered Lake a bribe not to run again. But the secret audio has divided the party. While some have applauded Lake, a firebrand hardliner who is close to Donald Trump, others accused her of secretly wearing a wire to set up DeWit. Witnesses said she was booed for a minute as she tried to make the case for Gina Swoboda to be elected chair of...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — Most likely Republican Iowa caucusgoers say they’ll vote for former President Donald Trump in the general election if he’s the GOP nominee, regardless of the candidate they’re supporting on caucus night. That is, except supporters of former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, with nearly half of them — 43% — saying they’d vote for Democratic President Joe Biden over Trump. These new findings from the latest NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll of Iowa further illustrate the degree to which Haley is bringing in support from independents, Democrats and Republicans who have been uneasy with Trump’s takeover of...

    American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who served as managing editor of Reuters from 2011 to 2016, Paul Ingrassia, has reignited the fiery debate over what it means to be a “natural born citizen” under the U.S. Constitution—a debate with significant implications for potential presidential candidate Nikki Haley. Published on American Greatness, Mr. Ingrassia, a Law Clerk, a two-time Claremont Fellow, and a member of President Trump’s National Economic Council, meticulously examined the constitutional provision that has been at the heart of eligibility controversies involving political figures from John McCain to Kamala Harris. At the core of his argument is Article II,...

    The Obama-Biden-Blinken “realignment” is well under way, and the consequences are dire for Israel and the United States — and indeed for the rest of the world. It is now crystal clear that Secretary of State Antony Blinken is exploiting the Iranian-backed Hamas war to destroy the existing state of Israel through the use of threats, blackmail, leaks, the media, diplomatic backstabbing, the Arab states, the European Union, and the United Nations. In a State Department memo dated Monday, November 13, Blinken explained America’s posture toward the Arabs in Gaza. It’s madness. He wrote: As I said in private and...

    Raw Story ^ | 10/25/23 | Matthew Chapman
    In retrospect, wrote former GOP strategist Tim Miller for The Bulwark, it was inevitable that Republicans would go down this path. "For about a decade and a half now the governing wing of the party has attempted every strategy imaginable to delay handing congressional leadership power to the group of lawmakers who better represent the desires of today’s GOP voters — the erstwhile renegades the late John McCain dubbed 'wacko birds,'" wrote Miller. "That group has grown from only a handful of troublemakers to a significant bloc of Congress that’s bolstered by an additional group of 'closet normals' who dress...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) took a shot at former President Donald Trump and criticized him for his lack of “leadership” during his Wednesday announcement that he is not seeking reelection in 2024. Romney criticized Trump for calling “global warming a hoax” in a video statement he released. Romney also said, “neither President Biden nor former President Trump are leading their party to confront” the “critical challenges” facing the country like the “mounting national debt, climate change, and the ambitious authoritarians of Russia and China.”

    A Trump-critical Republican non-profit launched an campaign Tuesday calling on GOP lawmakers to mantain support for Ukraine amid growing resistance to additional aid packages from key factions of the party. “Republicans for Ukraine,” launched Tuesday by the non-profit Defending Democracy Together, is a $2-million campaign with first-person testimonials from GOP voters urging politicians and lawmakers to support Ukraine. The ads will run on cable, network TV, and on YouTube through the end of the year. Defending Democracy Together describes itself as an “advocacy organization created by lifelong conservatives and Republicans.” The group has spoken out against former President Trump and...

    Sen. John McCain on Monday strongly disputed a U.S. diplomatic cable that said he pushed to help Muammar Qadhafi’s regime obtain military hardware two years ago, calling the notion “outrageous.” The 2009 cable, released by the open information group WikiLeaks and written by staff at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, said in particular that McCain, at a meeting with Qadhafi and one of his sons, promised to help Libya obtain C-130 Hercules military cargo aircraft. (snip) On Monday, McCain told Foreign Policy magazine that the diplomatic cable was incorrect, and that he had never pledged any help to Libya in...

    FULL TITLE: 'Something was off': Survivor says US troops were stalled by a village elder before they were ambushed by 50 terrorists in Niger for hours following a near 24 hour patrol operation The four American special forces killed fighting in Niger were ambushed by 50 ISIS terrorists after they were stalled by a village elder, a survivor of the attack has revealed. The group of 12 American forces had accompanied 30 Nigerien forces to an area about 85 kilometers north of the capital Niamey on a routine reconnaissance mission on October 3, when a dramatic new order came through...

    The Delaware federal judge likely to sign off on Hunter Biden’s guilty plea next month was nominated to the bench by former President Donald Trump — but was backed by the First State’s two Democratic senators and has donated to both parties. US District Judge Maryellen Noreika was randomly assigned to preside over a hearing on the first son’s plea deal, which is set for July 26 in Wilmington federal court. SNIP Those donations include $5,200 to Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-Ark.) 2014 Senate campaign, $5,000 to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, $2,300 to John McCain’s presidential run in 2008, and...

    Allies of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reportedly launched a super PAC to support his likely run for the presidency. The New York Times, citing unnamed sources, reported Monday that Christie's 2024 campaign kickoff is expected in the next two weeks. The political action committee, called Tell It Like It Is, will be led by Brian Jones, an aide who advised Sen. John McCain's presidential bid in 2008 and Mitt Romney's in 2012. In a statement to the Times, Jones said Christie "is willing to confront the hard truths that currently threaten the future of the Republican Party. Now...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) pledged his support to Ukraine during the formal launch of his presidential campaign on Wednesday, where he also touted his claims of fighting the establishment and consistency as a conservative throughout his political career. Hutchinson, who said during an early April interview on ABC’s This Week that he would run for president, first highlighted the role the city of Bentonville, Arkansas, has had in shaping who he is and his career– from his first law office to building the city’s first FM radio station to serving as Bentonville’s City Attorney and starting a family...

    Former President Trump plans to attack Bush-era Republicans in his remarks to the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday and urge those in attendance to finish the job of transforming the GOP by backing him for the White House in 2024. Trump is expected to deliver CPAC’s keynote address at roughly 5:30 p.m. in remarks that are expected to last roughly 90 minutes. Trump has been a staple of the annual gathering for years, delivering marquee speeches during and after his presidency. The event, this year in National Harbor, Maryland, is now dominated by his most ardent supporters and he is...

    On the same day that House Speaker John Boehner told Republicans to "Get your asses in line" and support his debt ceiling proposal, Sen. John McCain also blasted fellow Republicans. In a Senate floor speech laced with sarcasm and stings, the Arizona Republican aimed especially harsh fire at the tea party Wednesday. McCain said the movement is "foolish" to think a balanced budget amendment could pass before the August 2 deadline. At one point, McCain read from an op-ed in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal. That article referred to activists as "tea party hobbits" – the little people who inhabit Middle-earth...
