    AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite The Senate’s two-week recess ends on Monday. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will be back to work then. He made the announcement on Twitter, a nod to recent gossiping and speculation that he would retire after treatment for a concussion suffered when McConnell took a fall at a dinner event. McConnell is 81 years old so talk of retirement after his long career in public service is not out of the ordinary. McConnell fell during a dinner event in early March. He was hospitalized and treated for a concussion. He was moved to an inpatient...

His arrival will be met by rumors of an impending retirement. A top McConnell aide told The Washington Times the Kentucky Republican “is not going anywhere,” and rejected reports in the media that suggest he’s stepping down.

    Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell has been out of the public eye for weeks, following a serious fall that hospitalized him. Now multiple sources confirm that Senators John Barrasso of North Dakota, John Cornyn of Texas and John Thune of South Dakota are actively reaching out to fellow Republican senators in efforts to prepare for an anticipated leadership vote — a vote that would occur upon announcement that McConnell would be retiring from his duties as leader, and presumably the Senate itself. One source says that Cornyn has been particularly active in his preparations, taking fellow senators with whom he...

    A Twitter profile that belonged to Sturgeon has also been taken down. According to The Daily Beast, the now-deleted Twitter account included, “posts in support of the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020, as well as some criticism of police violence and of then-President Donald Trump,” alongside tweets about the NBA, sports and messages between friends. Sturgeon also appears to have been at one-point a frequent poster on Reddit. An account matching his Twitter and Instagram handle, csturg41, was suspended by Reddit after the shooting.

    Dozens if not hundreds of government operatives infiltrated the protests at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Below is an ever expanding list of government operatives The Gateway Pundit and others identified working inside the massive Trump crowd at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

  • Mid-Tier Donor Class Very Worried About Ron DeSantis 2024 Management Agenda

    March 25, 2023 | Sundance | 361 Comments Before getting to the latest developments regarding the worries of the mid-tier donor class within the republican apparatus, I want to provide some context for the overall Ron DeSantis (RdS) management agenda. I can trace the origin of the RdS 2024 scheme to an originating timeframe in late fall 2021. It may go back further than that, but it is at least in place by the late fall of 2021. That means that everything within the professional republican apparatus, those who manipulate the political events from the controlling wing of the republican...

    December 23, 2022 Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called out former President Donald Trump’s dwindling political influence and vowed that the Republican Party will not accept his preferred candidates in 2024. “Here’s what I think has changed: I think the former president’s political clout has diminished,” McConnell told NBC News, taking a shot at the 76-year-old former commander-in-chief. The Senate GOP leader, in the Wednesday interview that was reported Friday, added that (he) will “actively look for quality candidates” for the 2024 primaries

    Democrats have a more favorable view of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) than Republicans do, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday found. The survey examined the likability of three Republican leaders: Former President Donald Trump, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and McConnell. The survey showed 52 percent of likely voters with a favorable view of both Trump and McCarthy. Of those, 31 percent view Trump “very” favorably, while 22 percent view McCarthy “very” favorably. However, McConnell struggles to see a positive favorable rating across the board, as 60 percent hold an unfavorable view, while 31 percent have unfavorable view....

    According to the NY Times, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell had been under observation since suffering a concussion during a fall on Wednesday. He also has a “minor rib fracture,” his office said. He’s off to rehab and rumor has it that he might never return. Mitch McConnell could be sidelined. A spokesman, David Popp, said that the lawmaker’s “concussion recovery is proceeding well” and that Mr. McConnell, 81, had been discharged from George Washington University Hospital, where he was taken after the accident at the Waldorf Astoria on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington about 9 p.m. Wednesday. “At the advice...
  • EXPLOSIVE: The 2020 Election Steal Required an “Emergency” on Jan 6 to Complete the Coup

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | March 14, 2023 | Joe Hoft
    An “emergency” was required on Jan 6 to prevent the 2020 election coup from being uncovered. .... Snip.... This is a very important read. What this shows is that the Democrats and the Deep State needed an “emergency” on January 6th to culminate their 2020 Election steal. In order to complete the 2020 Election coup, Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell and Pence needed to create an emergency. The only way to prevent Congress from delaying the certification of state electoral votes was to create a crisis that could easily be designated an emergency. Just moments, literally 3 minutes before two representatives issued...

    Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) advocated for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to be the lead 2024 presidential candidate, arguing he has earned the right to be “at the head of the class.” Cramer argued the Republican Party is “in desperate need of some new leadership” and that former President Donald Trump may struggle to achieve the GOP nomination depending on “who else is in the race,” he said during his appearance on NBC's Meet the Press. “Gov. DeSantis … has certainly earned the right to be at the head of the class … not just through his political rhetoric, but through...

    While sober observers of news and politics take time to contemplate the new J6 video released by Tucker Carlson and what it means to the media-constructed narrative of that day’s events, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell instead chose, yet again, to side with Democrats and condemned the release of the new footage:“With regard to the presentation on Fox News last night, I want to associate myself entirely with the opinion of the chief of the Capitol police about what happened on January 6.”McConnell offered his hot take at his regular Tuesday afternoon media scrum in the halls of the Capitol....

    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.

    I have some genuine questions and I have no malice against Ron DeSantis or his supporters but a few things trouble me about him! He has the tacit support of the Bushes. I know they want anyone but Trump but as one Freeper put it: Will he blow kisses back? What does having their support mean? Does it mean Karl Rove becomes an advisor? Campaign cash, staff and what not? Think about it. It's not just some throw away endorsement by them it comes with serious muscle, donors, etc. He's also visiting Texas instead of CPAC. Will he be hanging...

    Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida prizes preparation and the way it allows him to control his political narrative. But suddenly, he was on the verge of going off message. He had traveled to a Central Florida warehouse this past week to promote a $2 billion tax cut proposal when he was confronted with the inevitable: an especially ugly attack from former President Donald J. Trump that seemed to warrant a strong response. Mr. Trump had insinuated on social media that Mr. DeSantis behaved inappropriately with high school girls while he was a teacher in his early 20s. As a reporter...
