    Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said on “Fox News Sunday” that new faces of the Republican Party have the potential to flourish now that former President Trump is out of office. He named Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska as potential spokespeople. “So there will be some new faces,” Mr. Romney said. “President Trump, of course, will continue to have influence, but I think our party is going to return to some of our more fundamental principles, which is fiscal responsibility, believing in the importance of character,...

    Image screenshot from Youtube video KETV, cropped and scaled by Dean Weingarten There are few Governors who unabashedly support the exercise of Second Amendment rights at protests inside their own state Capitol buildings. Governor Pete Ricketts of Nebraska is one of them.On 12 January 2021, Governor Pete Ricketts gave a press conference about how the Covid19 protective measures.At about 42:11 in the video, a reporter asks about potential “armed protestors” at the Capitol.

    Five-year-old Teague Pollard saying the Pledge of Allegiance before virtual school. Remember when we used to say the Pledge of Allegiance every day before school started. When I was in Girl’s State, we would get up every day at the crack of dawn, dress up and gather round the flag to say the Pledge of Allegiance. I, for one, believe that children who grow up not having any respect for this nation are bound to disrespect the country and its people. It’s important that they learn to take pride in their country and our flag. To illustrate my point, I...

    The Associated Press ^ | January 1, 2021 | By MARY CLARE JALONICK and LISA MASCARO
    Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska has issued a pointed rebuke of GOP attempts to object Jan. 6 to the Electoral College tally of the presidential election, warning colleagues against a “dangerous ploy” that could damage the nation’s civic traditions. Sasse, a potential 2024 presidential contender, posted a lengthy explanation Thursday of his views on social media, including a paragraph by paragraph dismantling of allegations of voter fraud in key states won by President-elect Joe Biden. Sasse said he felt compelled to speak “truth” as constituents and those supporting President Donald Trump wanted to know where he stands on the...

    The Hill ^ | 12/23/20 09:13 PM EST | BY ALEXANDER BOLTON
    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on Wednesday blasted President Trump’s latest pardons of political allies such as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and political adviser Roger Stone as “rotten to the core.” Sasse issued his statement Wednesday evening, specifically mentioning Manafort and Stone. “This is rotten to the core,” he said in a terse one-liner. The statement by Sasse said that “felons like Manafort and Stone” had “flagrantly and repeatedly violated the law and harmed Americans.” Sasse was the first GOP senator out of the gate to criticize the pardons. Others are likely to follow. Trump also pardoned Charles Kushner,...

    According to Carhart’s website, the banned procedures are being done at his facility on babies at 14 to 22 weeks of gestation. BELLEVUE, Nebraska, November 26, 2020 (Operation Rescue) — A new Nebraska state law that bans a risky, yet common procedure used to abort babies in the second trimester has gone into effect without legal challenge, but the one abortionist who the law would most affect is denying he uses the procedure — a denial Operation Rescue believes to be patently false. The new law, known as Legislative Bill 814, bans the use of an abortion process known as...

    Live Action News ^ | Nov 23 2020 | Cassy Fiano-Chesser
    A Nebraska bill banning dismemberment abortions was passed by the legislature earlier this year. Now, with no legal challenges against it, it has officially taken effect. The Omaha World-Herald reported that the law took effect last week. This means that dilation and evacuation, or D&E, abortions are now illegal in the state of Nebraska. Often committed in the second trimester, a D&E is a violent procedure that takes several days to complete, and results in the dismemberment of a child who is often still alive. On the first day, the abortionist inserts laminaria into the mother’s cervix to begin dilation....

    Apparently, Senator Ben Sasse has not the moral courage to stand behind President Trump in his fight to defend America’s election integrity and the sacrosanct right of the vote. It seems too that Senator Sasse neither gives a rat’s tail about justice. No surprise, since Sasse has from the beginning opposed America’s 45th president. Being anything but shy in expressing disapproval, Sasse often publically ridicules President Trump – and this is why the senator could not move fast enough to get his pointy snout up Joe Biden’s butt to congratulate the geriatric prevaricator on the electoral fraud the Democrats perpetrated...

    If Donald Trump doesn’t take the Oath of Office on January 20, 2021, one principal but little-noted reason for this may be that he crossed one of the most powerful and least accountable forces in the nation: the military-industrial complex. As Trump said last September, “the top people in the Pentagon…want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy. But we’re getting out of the endless wars, you know how we’re doing.” Now, however, that Joe Biden has been anointed “President-elect”...

    To grasp the impact of the latest great wave of immigration to the United States, consider the city of Grand Island, Neb.: More than 60 percent of public school students are nonwhite, and their families collectively speak 55 languages. During drop-off at Starr Elementary on a recent morning, parents bid their children goodbye in Spanish, Somali and Vietnamese.

    By the time President Donald Trump finished speaking to thousands of supporters at Omaha's Eppley Airfield on Tuesday night and jetted away on Air Force One, the temperature had plunged to nearly freezing. But as long lines of MAGA-clad attendees queued up for buses to take them to distant parking lots, it quickly became clear that something was wrong. The buses, the huge crowd soon learned, couldn't navigate the jammed airport roads. For hours, attendees - including many elderly Trump supporters - stood in the withering cold, as police scrambled to help the most at-risk get to warmth. The confusion...

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday directed his supporters’ attention to an interview of Hunter Biden’s former business partner conducted by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “Moments ago we learned about the other reason Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement,” Trump said at a rally in Omaha, Nebraska. Trump spoke about the story at a campaign rally that began about six minutes after Carlson’s interview with Tony Bobulinski concluded. The president described the new information revealed by Bobulinski as “shocking, disturbing, and explosive.” “The business partner made clear that Biden’s denial of involvement in his son’s corrupt business dealings...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Speaker Nancy Pelosi once predicted she’d have the 2020 House Democratic majority secured by November — of 2019. Now, days before the Nov. 3 election, she seems to have done it, and she’s expanding her reach. With control of the House hardly contested, Pelosi is working to fortify Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and win extra House seats in case Congress is called on to resolve any Electoral College dispute with President Donald Trump. Pelosi said she feels so confident Democrats will keep the House this election, she’s already preparing to win the next one in 2022....

    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...

    One day before Jake Gardner fatally shot James Scurlock outside his bar in downtown Omaha, President Trump threatened to send the military to Minneapolis in response to violent clashes between police and protesters following the death of George Floyd in police custody, tweeting “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” The timing of Trump’s tweet, which Twitter has since removed from public view for violating its policy on glorifying violence, “is significant in terms of Jake Gardner’s affinity for the president,” special prosecutor Fredrick Franklin told members of the press in Omaha on Wednesday. Last Tuesday, Franklin announced that a...
