    Former FBI Director James Comey, an outspoken opponent of outgoing President Donald Trump, believes the Republican Party “needs to be burned down or changed” moving forward. While Comey long identified as a Republican, he endorsed Joe Biden last year and now believes the Republican Party needs a complete revamp.

  • Rather: Republican Party Has Been ‘Playing with Fire of White Nationalism’

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that “the Republican Party as a whole and overwhelmingly has been playing with the fire of white nationalism.” When asked if President Trump should be held accountable for the Capital Hill riot, Rather said, “The answer is yes. Donald Trump can be made to pay a price. I would argue that it is absolutely essential for the general health of our democracy in our country that that happen. And we can get things under control.”

    Kenneth R. Timmerman today properly reminds us that it is leaders, not institutions, that have betrayed us. James S. Corum reminds us today of the deep bench that resides in the party below the level of top congressional leaders — and the formidable power of state governments and political organizations under GOP control. Discarding these tools amounts to unilateral disarmament just as we need them in the critical elections ahead. Leaders can be influenced and discarded, but institutions take a long time to build. We have state-level redistricting in immediate prospect and a midterm election in less than 22 months....
  • D.C.'s biggest corporate donors including Amazon, GE, Verizon and Best Buy plunge Republicans into cash crisis by boycotting 'treason caucus' and other firms stop ALL political donations

    Republicans in Congress faced growing blowback on Monday from businesses that said they would cut off campaign contributions to those who voted last week to challenge President-elect Joe Biden's victory. The announcements by Amazon.com, General Electric Co, Dow, AT&T, Comcast Corp, Verizon Communications, American Express Co, Airbnb, Best Buy and Mastercard, among others, threaten to throttle fundraising resources for Republicans who will soon be out of power in the White House and both chambers of Congress. AT&T and Comcast, for example, are among the biggest corporate donors in Washington.

    Republican senators say they feel a sense of growing regret over not standing up to President Trump sooner — a day after a violent mob ransacked the Capitol building in one of the darkest and most humiliating days in U.S. history. One Republican senator who requested anonymity to discuss his conversations with GOP colleagues acknowledged GOP lawmakers should have served as a stronger check on the president over the past four years

    As conservatives and other patriots across the country wait with bated breath, pondering the nightmare of a possible Joe Biden presidency and a Democrat-controlled Congress, there are many among these who appear to grasp the perilous nature of these potentialities, and others who apparently do not. Over the last two months, we've heard conservative politicos strategizing as regards how they plan to "win it back" should Joe Biden ascend to the presidency, conservatives engaging in futile arguments with rabid leftists on social media and conservative radio talk-show hosts attempting to deconstruct the mechanics of our recent general election. There may...

    The New York Times ^ | December 29th | Catie Edmondson
    Senator Mitch McConnell blocked an attempt by Democrats on Tuesday to hold an immediate vote on increasing stimulus checks to $2,000 from $600, leaving the fate of the measure unclear as President Trump continued to demand the larger payouts and more Republicans publicly endorsed the idea. Instead, Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, provided vague assurances that the Senate would “begin the process” of discussing $2,000 checks and two other issues that Mr. Trump has demanded lawmakers address: election security and removing legal protections for social media platforms. Mr. McConnell would not say whether he planned separate...
  • Here's How a Republican Could End up Speaker of the House Instead of Nancy Pelosi

    PJ Media ^ | 12/27/2020 | Matt Margolis
    According to a report, Democrats are panicking, fearful that the COVID-19 pandemic could prevent Nancy Pelosi from being re-elected as House speaker despite Democrats holding a majority in the chamber. Is this really possible? Well, let’s see. While House members can vote by proxy due to emergency rules adopted in May to protect members from getting and spreading COVID-19, but, as The Hill reports, “ proxy-voting rule expires with the new Congress, requiring lawmakers to be in the Capitol in person if they want to participate in the Jan. 3 floor vote for Speaker.” New rules governing the 117th Congress...

    The GOP today is the party of Donald Trump, but some Republicans just don’t know it yet. The failed GOP, the one that nominated John McCain and Mitt Romney for the Presidency, is dead. Good riddance to it. The GOP survives this day only because Donald Trump rescued it in 2016. Some have suggested that if Joe Biden is sworn in that Donald Trump should start his own party. Absolutely not! Why go through the process building an entirely new party when instead he can clear out all the splinters of driftwood from the party of Abraham Lincoln? There are,...

    President-elect Joe Biden is considering some establishment Republicans to fill the role of commerce secretary in his administration in an attempt to reach out to conservatives, according to a report from Axios. In its report, Axios considered those under consideration to be “Meg Whitman types.”
  • Republican Mackenzie Kelly Wins Austin City Council Runoff. Local Paper Declines to Cover It

    PJ Media ^ | DEC 16, 2020 | BRYAN PRESTON
    In a stunning upset, Republican Mackenzie Kelly defeated Democrat incumbent Jimmy Flannigan in Austin’s District 6 runoff Tuesday. Kelly ran on a platform that includes restoring police department funding and ending the city’s permissive homeless camping ordinance. She won with 52% to Flannigan’s 48%, a margin of just about 700 votes overall. Kelly’s win, and Republican Jennifer Virden’s near-win in District 10, may signal a major shift in Austin voters’ thinking. The Democrat-dominated city was already up in arms over the homeless camping ordinance, which allows homeless people to camp just about anywhere they want all over the city (except...

    December 14, 2020 (FRC Action) — For the tens of thousands of people who made the trip to the National Mall this weekend, there was some solace in the crowds. They came, Ohio's Melissa Regan said, to fight for their freedom. "I'm a mom and a proud American," New York's Lisa Morin told a photographer on an unusually warm December day. "And I'm really scared about what's happening in this country." It's not just about exposing the truth of the election, she insisted. It's about exposing the truth, period. Like so many of the president's supporters, they could only shake...

    Joe Biden is our media-declared president-elect. His ostensible win is terrible news for our national security. A President Biden would lead to more foreign conflicts and more appeasement to China. That's why it's critical that, over the next two months, President Donald Trump and Republicans implement policies that mitigate the threat he can pose to our peace and security.Biden has long advocated foreign interventions that run contrary to the national interest. He voted for the Iraq war in 2003 and continued to defend this decision long after the conflict proved disastrous for our nation. Nor did he learn from that...

    Townhall.com ^ | November 25, 2020 | Katie Yoder
    Many in the media regularly dismiss the Republican party – and the pro-life movement – as a group of old, white men. At the same time, the women who dare to identify as Republican or pro-life are all too often condemned as “gender traitors.” But the 2020 election results challenge these notions. According to pro-life advocacy organization Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), women and the life issue are winning in Congress. At least 17 newly-elected pro-life women will join 11 pro-life women incumbents in the House of Representatives in 2021. That’s not to mention the Senate, where as many...
