    Democrats are worried about winning the 2022 midterm elections after Republican state legislatures reformed 30 election integrity laws in 18 states and additional legislation may come.CEO of the Stacey Abrams-founded New Georgia Project, Nsé Ufot, told Politico, “If there isn’t a way for us to repeat what happened in November 2020, we’re f—ed.”Latosha Brown, cofounder of Black Voters Matter, told Politico that “hope is quickly turning into frustration.” She then asked, “When in the hell are those who claim that they are committed to democracy going to show up to protect those that protect democracy?”Along with the multitude of states...

    Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly reportedly threatened to sue a Politico reporter over an article revealing that sales for his “History Tour” with former President Trump were low, citing conversations with venue ticketing officials. Politico’s Daniel Lippman on Friday reported that tickets for the tour, which has four stops scheduled at locations in Texas and Florida this December, went on sale June 14, though venue officials said sales have so far been slow compared with other events held at the arenas. [cut] However, Trump and O’Reilly have both pushed back on Politico’s reporting, with Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington saying...

    An executive at Peter Thiel’s venture capital fund is running for a US Senate seat with $10 million in backing from his boss. Blake Masters, the 34-year-old chief operating officer at investment firm Thiel Capital and a former protege of the billionaire at Stanford, announced Monday that he is running as a Republican to unseat Arizona Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in 2022. In his campaign launch, Masters pledged to “completely end illegal immigration” and fight “indoctrination” in the school system. Masters has never held public office and faces a crowded GOP primary field that includes state Attorney General Mark Brnovich...
  • Flashback: Politico Harshly Derided Wuhan Lab Leak Theory as Like a 'Dystopian Movie Plot'

    Newsbusters ^ | July 9, 2021 | P.J. Gladnick
    On Friday, Politico published an article, "POLITICO-Harvard poll: Most Americans believe Covid leaked from lab," which revealed the results of a poll showing that a majority of both Republicans and Democrats now view the COVID-19 virus as having leaked from the Wuhan lab rather than it spreading naturally from a bat. The subtitle of the story, "Opinion on the lab leak scenario, once seen as a fringe theory, has shifted dramatically" is interesting because Politico itself was at the forefront of the many media outlets branding the lab leak scenario as "fringe."The reason for Politico's over the top harsh branding...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that the Politico article alleging a hostile work environment in the office of Vice President Kamala Harris will be used by the right to attack Harris because she was a black woman. ABC legal analyst and co-host Sunny Hostin said, “I think that this has a lot to do with, yes, politics, but it also has a lot to do with the fact that she’s a woman of color and a woman because we know that things that are acceptable for men are not acceptable for women. Maybe she’s, you...
  • DeSantis’ big goal: Don’t enrage Trump (Politico)

    TALLAHASSEE — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is on a collision course with the most powerful man in the GOP: Donald Trump. DeSantis is crisscrossing the country to deliver red-meat speeches. Iowa leaders begged him to visit. He just beat Trump in a key straw poll. And now the popular governor is getting close to overshadowing the former president in the 2024 presidential sweepstakes. All of that could be dangerous for DeSantis’ political health, as Trump continues to ponder a new bid for the White House and remains capable of kneecapping any Republican he sees as a threat. “It makes it...
  • ‘You don’t have to die in your seat’: Democrats stress over aging members

    Rep. Alcee Hastings was 84 years old and battling pancreatic cancer. He was nearing his third decade in Congress. But he just couldn’t quit his House seat. So he ran again last November and won his South Florida-based district, only to die in April. His death created a vacancy that made House Democrats’ already slim majority even smaller — and now his seat will remain vacant until January, thanks to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who aimed to keep the solidly Democratic seat unoccupied for as long as possible by scheduling the special election nine months after Hastings’ death.

    The Supreme Court will consider whether setting Obamacare’s individual mandate tax to $0 renders the mandate unconstitutional, and if any other parts of Obamacare should fall with it.In a few weeks, health care will once again take center stage at the Supreme Court. In what has become a semi-regular occurrence, the justices will soon rule on a case focused on two central questions: Whether Congress’ 2017 decision to set Obamacare’s individual mandate tax to $0 renders the mandate unconstitutional, and if so, what if any other parts of Obamacare should fall with it.In advance of the impending ruling, John McDonough...
  • Congressional Republicans are privately dreading Trump's return to the campaign trail

    "They'll never say it publicly," Politico reports in Thursday morning's Playbook. "But Republicans in Washington are dreading Donald Trump's return to the stump, predicting his rallies will cause a major headache for the party as it mounts a bid to take back Congress in 2022." Congressional Republicans are privately relieved Twitter and Facebook banned Trump, Politico says, but the resumption of his rallies in June likely means he just gets a new platform to "spout conspiracy theories about the election and air his grievances," denying the party a chance to move on and attack President Biden's agenda. "If we win...

The candidates include Rep. Jody Hice of Georgia, a leader of the congressional Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 Electoral College results; Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, one of...

    Many Senate Republicans oppose the partisan January 6 Commission which serves the Democrat’s agenda by deflecting from their unpopular policies. “I don’t think there will be 10 votes on our side for it,” Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) said of the legislation which passed the House with 35 Republican votes. “At this stage, I’d be surprised if you’re gonna get even a handful.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will also oppose the commission in a blow to Democrats who need ten Republicans to pass the measure. “It’s not at all clear what new facts or additional investigation yet another commission...
  • Fake Outrage Over Cheney 'Ouster'; Dems 'Ousted' Bernie Twice

    House Republican leadership removed Rep. Liz Cheney, (R-Wyo.), from her leadership position, a position her indignant liberal defenders likely did not even know existed until days ago. Cheney became Republican roadkill when she not only voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump but also became a vocal critic of his alleged "big lie" about the 2020 election. Cue the fake outrage by Democrats and the media. A CNN headline read in part: "Ousted Cheney Warns Direction of the Party is 'Dangerous.'" MSNBC wrote, "The GOP infighting reached a turning point after Republicans ousted Congresswoman Liz Cheney from her leadership position." PBS...

    In a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, respondents who plan to vote in the GOP primary were asked “If the 2024 Republican primary were being held today, for whom would you vote?” Trump more than tripled his nearest competitor with 48 percent to former Vice President Mike Pence’s 13 percent, while Pence nearly doubled third-place finisher Donald Trump Jr.’s 7 percent. Senators Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz were tied with former Amb. Nikki Haley at 4 percent. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who delivered the GOP response to President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress last month, drummed...
  • Mueller Prosecutors Are Discussing Plans To Arrest Donald Trump And Keep Him From Running In 2022

    Democrats are openly discussing arresting and extraditing Donald Trump from Florida to New York as part of a multi-pronged strategy to derail him if he decides to run for president again. Should former President Trump be indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. while staying at Mar-a-Lago, officials in Palm Beach, Fla., are reportedly considering a course of action. Vance, by the way, lets almost every criminal out of jail in New York, but of course Republicans are treated differently. ... According to Politico, law enforcement officials in the town have discussed how to handle possible extradition if Trump...

    Politico hyped a letter to President Joe Biden signed by 18 leftist groups demanding that he bypass GOP lawmakers and inject the economy with trillions of dollars in new spending. Politico’s story, headlined “John Podesta’s got a message for Joe Biden: Drop the Republicans,” was laced with left-wing agitprop. “[Leftist groups] are sounding the alarms that compromising with Republicans on a scaled-down infrastructure bill — and spending the time that such a deal might require — could make it increasingly difficult to pass the rest of Biden’s sweeping agenda,” Politico wrote. The letter, which was also addressed to Senate Majority...

    Despite the slavish devotion of much of the media, the Biden administration is generating resistance from reporters who cover it. Despite the slavish devotion of much of the media, the Biden administration is generating resistance from reporters who cover it. Politico’s West Wing Playbook reports: If you’ve read a quote from an administration official in a newspaper or a wire story recently, there’s a good chance that the White House communications team had an opportunity to edit it first. That’s because the Biden White House frequently demands that interviews with administration officials be conducted on grounds known colloquially as “background...

In her conversations with colleagues in advance of the expected vote, Stefanik has said she intends to serve in leadership through the 2022 election, two sources familiar told Fox News.

    Politico Magazine ^ | May 1, 2021 | Joshua Zeitz
    President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure legislation has the political class seemingly locked in a debate about what “infrastructure” means. Biden and Democratic leaders—backed by a majority of the U.S. population—believe that “infrastructure” is more than just roads and bridges and encompasses all the structures that help modern society function. Their new bill reflects that understanding, including improvements to water pipes and the electrical grid, universal broadband access, charging stations for electric vehicles, physical upgrades to schools and universities, and—perhaps most innovatively—home care for the elderly and disabled, support for families with children, and expanded access to health care. Republican elected...

    In the civil war between Donald Trump and the GOP’s waning establishment, no Republican has crossed the former president and come out ahead. Yet as Rep. Liz Cheney’s likely ouster from House leadership lays bare, Trump has reserved a special fury for the scions of the GOP’s leading families in his attempt to exercise full dominion over the Republican Party. Whether it’s the Cheneys, the Bushes or the lesser bloodlines — such as the Romneys or the Murkowskis — Trump has been relentless in his efforts to force them to bend the knee. Even Cindy McCain, the widow of the...

    "The big lie" is perhaps the liberal media's favorite phrase nowadays. Shorthand, of course, for saying it's a lie to claim that the 2020 presidential election was tainted by fraud. So if the MSM hates lies, you'd think they'd welcome the truth. But seems like they only want "truth" that fits their liberal narrative. Speaking inconvenient truths can get you "in trouble." Take Florida-based Politico reporter Marc Caputo, appearing on today's Morning Joe to discuss the election law that Gov. Ron DeSantis signed yesterday. Caputo prefaced his remarks by saying: "I guess I’m going to say something that is going...
