  • Did Tim Scott just destroy his VP shot with this latest double-down on Mike Pence?

    President Trump reportedly has a very short veep list, and at the top is Senator Tim Scott—a politician who has never truly embraced the America First, Make America Great Again movement. He’s tried to ride the fence, offering occasional support here and there—he’s not downright awful, but his support always feels conditional and without any real passion or purpose. So, the question now is, did Tim Scott just disqualify himself as a possible VP with his latest appearance on ABC News? Many say yes and hope this marks the end of the tiresome “Scott hype.” So, what happened? Well, Tim...

    Sen. Tim Scott appears determined to take himself out of the running to be Donald Trump’s vice-presidential pick. In an interview on CNN’s State of the Union with host Jon Karl, Scott said he stood by his decision to certify the 2020 presidential election, despite widespread evidence of voter fraud that tipped the election in Biden’s favor. Here is a transcript of the exchange: JON KARL: OK. Senator, the day before that violent mob attacked the Capitol, you put out a statement explaining your decision to certify Joe Biden’s election victory. Do you stand by that? You were not one...

    A proposed amendment to the Southern Baptist Convention's constitution, known as the Law Amendment, that would have permanently banned women from serving as pastors "as qualified by Scripture," fell 5 percentage points short of the required two-thirds support from messengers on Wednesday.Some 5,099 — or 61% of messengers who cast ballots at America's largest Protestant denomination's Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana — voted in favor of the measure that needed 66.66% of the votes to be ratified. About 38%, or 3,185 messengers, opposed the motion.The amendment received much less support than it did when it was proposed by Pastor Mike...

    INDIANAPOLIS — Before an audience of 400-plus Southern Baptists, former Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday raised warnings about the shifting direction of the Republican Party but stopped short of denouncing a far-right religious movement rising amid former President Donald Trump’s candidacy for president in November. "There’s also a very healthy debate within my party about whether we’re going to stay on the course…traditional moral values, a right to life, an affirmation of religious liberty or whether we’re going to start to move in a different direction," Pence said during a luncheon organized by the Southern Baptist Convention's public policy...

    CNN — President Joe Biden on Friday said that Donald Trump’s conviction in the hush money trial reaffirmed “the American principle that no one is above the law.”Speaking from the White House, Biden said the jury consisted of regular Americans who heard evidence and returned a unanimous verdict.“Donald Trump was given every opportunity to defend himself,” Biden said. “A state case, not a federal case, was heard by a jury of 12 citizens. Twelve Americans. Twelve people like you, like millions of Americans who served on juries.” He said Trump’s jury was “chosen the same way every jury in America,”...

"The conviction of former President Trump on politically motivated charges is an outrage and disservice to the nation," Pence told Fox News Digital. "No one is above the law, but our courts must not become a tool to be used against political opponents," Pence continued. "To millions of Americans, this was nothing more than a political prosecution driven by a Manhattan DA who ran for office...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence blasted former President Trump on Monday for embracing the position that abortion policy should be determined by states and avoiding taking a stance on whether the federal government should enforce a national ban at a certain cutoff point. In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Pence — who was Trump’s running mate in 2016 and 2020 —said Trump’s newly announced position on abortion was a “slap in the face” to opponents of abortion rights who voted for their ticket. “President Trump’s retreat on the Right to Life is a slap in the face to the...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence was on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning. He told moderator Margaret Brennan that the use of the term hostages for January 6th defendants was “unacceptable.” “What do you think when you hear him refer to those people facing charges as hostages and patriots?” Brennan asked Pence. “Well, I think it’s unfortunate at a time that there are American hostages being held in Gaza that the President or any other leaders who would refer to people that are moving through our justice system as hostages and it’s just, it’s just unacceptable,” Pence responded.

    A procession of prominent Republicans who wanted to guide their party away from Donald Trump in 2024 have come around to him as the former president became the party’s presumptive nominee. And many have offered virtually the same justification in grudgingly offering support: He’s at least preferable to President Biden. “I think he’d be better than Joe Biden,” said Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp. “It’s as simple as that.” “I mean, the alternative is Biden,” said New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu. “The choice before the American people is crystal clear: It’s Donald Trump or Joe Biden,” said Senate Minority Whip John...

"Donald Trump is pursuing and articulating an agenda that is at odds with the conservative agenda that we governed on during our four years, and that's why I cannot in good conscience endorse Donald Trump in this campaign."

    Former national security adviser to former Vice President Mike Pence, Olivia Troye, revealed that her biggest fear linked to another Trump administration is who he'll appoint to his cabinet. She worries about people like one-time White House strategist Steve Bannon and short-time Trump National Security Adviser Mike Flynn — both charged with crimes then pardoned by Trump — and Kash Patel, who has written a children's book about "King Trump." Trump learned from his first term that he can place people in "acting" positions without Senate confirmation, Troye warned in an MSNBC interview Saturday. Who knows what you will get...
