    For the better part of President Trump’s first term in office, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has been a target of the far-left, because, of course, she does not embrace their radical agenda line-by-line. A noted moderate in the GOP Senate caucus, Sen. Collins votes with both parties, issue by issue. Sen. Collins’ nuanced approach to governance is unfathomable to the far-left. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) sent a fundraising plea, amidst a global health pandemic, for Sen. Collins’ opponent, Sara Gideon, featuring far-left author Stephen King: Friend, I'm just so fed up with watching Susan Collins acquiesce to...

    Folks, this was done to tank the markets. This was done to resist President Trump. This was done to screw over the American worker. The Senate has a $1.6 trillion Wuhan coronavirus bailout package that Democrats co-wrote. They filibustered it on Sunday night. We all know why theyre doing this. This isnt a secret. The Dow Jones is down some 600 points as we speak and now, theyre trying to logroll stuff that is unrelated to this pandemic. Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) said this move is to shift the economic agenda more to the progressive Lefts vision. Guy wrote up...

    Believe me, these ten minutes are worth your time. Here's Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) absolutely ripping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats for sneaking in a laundry list of progressive, environmental provisions into the CARES Act, the third phase of Congress's coronavirus response intended to provide aid, relief, and economic security for individuals and businesses during this unpredictable era. Barrasso kicked off his remarks by condemning "the demands by the Democrats to muck up a bill that is designed as a rescue operation for the American people." He next identified the culprit. "Nancy Pelosi flew back from California...

    During a press conference on Friday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) criticized the federal governments response to the coronavirus and the inconsistent messaging from the federal government. She called on President Trump to step back and appoint one of our public health officials to be the spokesman and suggested Dr. Anthony Fauci serve as the spokesperson and give daily briefings on the virus. Collins said, We are making progress at the federal level, but I am not satisfied with the response. I think that the messaging at the federal level has been inconsistent. And when youre dealing with a novel virus...

    A U.S. Senate candidate in Maine has selected an unusual logo for campaign T-shirts the guillotine citing the need for a revolution to remove big money from politics. The logo, unveiled this week by Democrat Bre Kidman, recalls the execution device known for its role in the 18th century French Revolution and is intended to symbolize revolt by low- and middle-income people, Kidman said. The guillotine is an image which calls to mind what people have done for revolution before, said Kidman, an attorney whos running for the seat held by Republican Sen. Susan Collins. If we can...

    U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, seen as a possible swing vote in President Trumps impeachment trial, announced on the Senate floor Tuesday that she will not vote to remove the president. This decision is not about whether you like or dislike this president or agree with or oppose his policies or approve or disapprove of his conduct in other circumstances, Collins said. Rather, it is about whether the charges meet the very high constitutional standard of treason, bribery or other high crimes or misdemeanors.

    Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the social media giant will continue to support free expression and encrypted content on its platform in a new interview. "This is the new approach, and I think it's going to piss off a lot of people. But frankly, the old approach was pissing off a lot of people too, so let's try something different," Zuckerberg said Friday at the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah, CNN reported. "Increasingly we're getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable," Zuckerberg continued. Zuckerberg said the company's...

    A threat made Friday that mentioned U.S. Sen. Susan Collins forced several schools from Machias to Bangor and Aroostook County into a soft lockdown. School remained in session, but no one could enter or leave the buildings without authorization. A business in Orono received the threat Friday morning through a vague, email message, according to Orono High School Principal Reg Ruhlin. Scott Porter, the superintendent of Machias schools, said the threat specified Collins and listed high schools in Bangor, Brewer, East Millinocket, Caribou, Houlton, Madawaska, Jonesport, Machias and Harrington. School districts did not see the actual message, according to Brewer...

    Veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein blasted Senate Republicans on the eve of their vote to determine whether or not witnesses will be allowed in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial. "The Senate of the United States, through the Republican leadership and membership, has now joined hands with a tyrant," said Bernstein. "We now have a precedent that's been set, especially if we're going to follow this new catechism, this cult of Trump that professor Dershowitz has advanced, this catechism that he cannot abuse his power. So, totally different situation than what happened in Watergate, because in Watergate the real heroes were...

You're a fing traitor," one man said. "You're going to lose, Susan Collins. You're going to lose. You're just a little bh for Donald Trump," a woman said.

Collins said, [B]ut for the efforts that four of us made to ensure that vote would occur, that its unlikely that we would have had that opportunity. I am pleased that every senator will have the opportunity to vote on whether or not additional witnesses and documents are necessary. It is very likely that Im going to conclude that yes, we do need to hear from witnesses. She added, I, for one, believe that theres...

    Top Republican senators dismissed leaked details from former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, saying the allegations were not new.“There’s nothing new here. It does seem to be an effort to sell books,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, told reporters in Washington on Monday.“The basic dynamic of the obligation of the House to take the time they have to put a case together doesn’t change. I don’t think it changes any fundamental information, nor does it change the basic case that the House has to put the case together,” added Sen. Roy...

    On Monday, radio and TV host Mark Levin issued a barrage of tweets regarding The New York Times article with excerpts from former national security advisor John Boltons new book, excerpts which prompted much hand-wringing among some GOP senators about calling new witnesses in the Senate impeachment trail targeting President Trump. Levin stomped on the Times, Bolton, and the GOP senators who seem to be considering capitulating to Democrats demands that witnesses be called who did not testify in the House impeachment trial. Levin began by cutting directly to the heart of the matter: If every word of this New...

    A pair of moderate Republican senators said Monday that the major revelations from a soon-to-be released book by John Bolton strengthen the case for calling witnesses in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial and even a top ally of the president said Bolton would be a "relevant" witness. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said it's "increasingly likely" there will be enough Republican senators to vote in favor of calling witnesses in the president's ongoing trial. "I think, with the story (about Bolton's book) that came out yesterday, it's increasingly apparent that it would be important to hear from John Bolton," Romney...

    Two additional venues have canceled a lecture event featuring conservative commentator and author Michelle Malkin. The event was first moved to the Gendron Franco Center in Lewiston, Maine, after a local hotel canceled the event as originally planned by a group of University of Maine students. Malkins second backup location has now also canceled her planned lecture. It appears the event will still happen, but details on a fourth venue have not been made public as of this writing. According to a local news report, the Gendron Franco Center announced on Friday that it canceled a Friday night event featuring...
