  • Newt Gingrich: Good riddance anti-Trump Republicans who would rather support Biden, Pelosi and Schumer

    The deep state Republicans are alive and well and doing what you’d expect them to be doing. They are living proof that President Donald Trump is a genuine change agent. The world he is changing is their world, and they hate him for it. In the near future, these deep state Republicans will drop the pretense of still belonging to the Party of Abraham Lincoln and become Democrats. These are, after all, people who have grown deeply uncomfortable not just with President Trump but also with those Republicans (the vast majority) who are comfortable with President Trump (about 88 percent...

  • Judge slaps down Pritzker order — Illinois Is Open For Business!

    CLAY COUNTY, Ill. (NEXSTAR) — Governor J.B. Pritzker’s emergency powers to issue executive orders to close businesses or order people to stay at home expired 85 days ago on April 8th, 2020, a judge in Clay County Circuit Court ruled on Thursday afternoon. The ruling did not find the state has no power to forcibly close businesses or to restrict a citizen’s movements, but rather that those powers are derived from the Illinois Department of Public Health Act, not under the Illinois Emergency Management Act. Pritzker’s administration has at times cited both portions of state law to enforce his orders....
  • Pelosi says Republicans 'trying to get away with murder' of George Floyd

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asserted in an interview Tuesday that Republicans are "trying to get away with murder, actually -- the murder of George Floyd" -- marking a dramatic escalation in rhetoric as the Democrat-controlled House prepares to pass its police reform package. Pelosi, D-Calif., speaking to CBS News Radio correspondent Steve Futterman, said Senate Republicans' reform proposals in the wake of Floyd's in-custody death in Minneapolis were "unsalvageable" and won't make "any difference." Specifically, Pelosi said Democrats want a total ban on chokeholds, which Attorney General William Barr has also suggested he would support. But, Pelosi said, some Republicans...

    Whoever thought Tucker Carlson would be the one to blow the lid on “Republicans ‘R Not Us” and Conservative Inc.? Certainly not me. Of course I never expected Donald Trump to be the man to call out the Deep State either. But as the great bard noted, “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”   As his guest Ned Ryun pointed out, “you can’t defeat religious zealots with careerists waiting to collect their next paycheck.” The Maoist Cultural Revolution has arrived on our shores and Republicans have already surrendered. A statue of George...

    When asked to name Republican disappointments in the United States Senate, conservatives don’t struggle naming names. Turncoats like former Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska who helped Democrats crucify Justice Kavanaugh. The late John McCain who helped save Obamacare. No conservative would forget the most famous modern-day RINO of all – Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney. That’s just a partial list to be sure, but it’s a reminder as we watch blue state governors continue with capricious and destructive coronoavirus lock downs and major Democrat-led cities erupt in anarchy. As we continue to uncover the scandal of...

    American Thinker ^ | June 11,2020 | By Patricia McCarthy
    The question is, where on Earth are the Republicans? Why has there been no press conference with every Republican in the House and Senate standing together to denounce all this violence? To passionately defend our police? They know damn well that Chauvin is an outlier, a bad cop who has kept his job because his Democrat-run city kept him despite his abusive tendencies. Why is President Trump always alone in saying what needs to be said? And when he says what needs to be said, he is viciously attacked by the Democrats and the media who, like Pavlov's dog, consider...
  • Oil bust could spur natural gas turnaround in San Juan Basin

    Santa Fe New Mexican ^ | 6/7/20 | Jens Gould
    To say times are tough for energy companies in the San Juan Basin would be an understatement. The market for natural gas is so bad right now that T. Greg Merrion has shut in nearly half of his family-owned company’s wells, most located in northwestern New Mexico. But that could soon change. If Merrion and key industry analysts are correct, there might be a silver lining in the oil crash caused by the coronavirus pandemic — it could end up helping northwestern New Mexico natural gas producers and even give a lift to state revenue in a time of crisis.

    The unemployment in the United States today is at 15%. There are over 39 million Americans who have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus.And yet on Wednesday nine US Republican Senators wrote President Donald Trump telling him not to restrict work visas for foreignors. Lindsey Graham was one of nine RINOs who want to bring in more foreign workers when there are 39 million Americans out of work. These people are soulless.These RINOs insist it will be good for the economy. Seriously? Lou Dobbs tonight challenged any of these RINOs to come on his show and debate him...

    House Republican leaders are expressing optimism about their chances to flip the House from Democrats to the GOP in November. Despite the challenges facing the party — challenges that almost all political pros from both parties agree are daunting — there may, indeed, be room for looking on the sunny side of the contest. Most political experts dismiss Republican chances of winning back the House. They point to the 41 seats that flipped in the 2018 midterms, a record number of Republican retirements, and a big cash advantage for Democratic incumbents.But a large number of those seats that flipped during...

    Embattled Spokane Valley Republican Matt Shea will not seek reelection to the legislative seat he has held for 12 years. Shea did not file a petition of candidacy for his 4th District House seat Friday, the last day available for people seeking offices in the 2020 election. He was rumored to be considering a run for Congress against fellow Republican Cathy McMorris Rodgers, but he did not file for that position either before the deadline passed. His seatmate, fellow Republican Bob McCaslin, did file for reelection Friday. Former Spokane County Treasurer Rob Chase filed for the district’s other seat.

    Illinois Review ^ | May 15, 2020 | Staff
    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Illinois' five Republican US Congress members called on Congress to protect local municipalities from governors withholding federal funds as leverage to demand they keep small businesses closed due to the COVID crisis. U.S. Representatives Darin LaHood (IL-18), John Shimkus (IL-13), Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Rodney Davis (IL-13), and Mike Bost (IL-12) sent a letter Friday to Congressional Leadership urging that Congress take action to prevent governors from withholding federal funds appropriated by Congress for local municipalities that allow their small businesses to reopen in accordance with federal health guidelines, but ahead of arbitrary timelines outlined by states. Following...

    For Americans hoping Senate Republicans might finally engage the Russia collusion hoax seriously, last night’s interview of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by “Special Report’s” Bret Baier was a tremendous disappointment. McConnell better figure out quickly that if he doesn’t hold the Resistance accountable for the Russia hoax that harmed his party and the entire country for many years, he won’t have a majority in the next term. If it helps to motivate him, he should remember that not having the majority in the next term means he won’t get to confirm judges, an issue he hopes will be his...

    The more we learn about coronavirus epidemics, the more it convinces us that pseudoscience is now accepted in all countries of the world as legitimate. Many articles show an unpleasant picture of not just the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, but the pandemic of massive, Orwellian politically induced psychosis. We've just begun analyzing the role of political preferences of various authorities in dealing with the epidemics. The initial response of United States governors to the coronavirus was quite dissimilar, depending on their party affiliation. The phenomenon was also independently discovered by Prof. James R. Rogers and is currently gaining traction....

    More U.S. likely voters say it’s “time for America to get back to work” despite the COVID-19 pandemic, but that plurality is driven by conservatives, results of a national Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday reveal. While 43% of voters nationwide say “Yes,” it’s time to get back to work, 38% say “No,” it’s not. Another 19% are “unsure,” according to the survey of 1,000 voters conducted April 30 and May 3, 2020.

    Washington Post ^ | May 01 2020 | Jennifer Rubin
    The right-wing media, willfully ignoring the press investigations into Tara Reade’s accusations, insist that former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, has not been treated similarly to accused conservative men (e.g., President Trump, Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh). They have a point, but not the one they were trying to make. Let’s start with the big picture: Right-wing groups persistently engage in conduct for which Republicans are not held to account. The latter are allowed to remain silent after instances of conduct with a strong stench of white nationalism, but pay no penalty for their quietude. Right-wing demonstrators at...

    PHOENIX — Numbers released by the Arizona Secretary of State today show that while the total number of registered voters in the state has barely increased, the Democratic Party is the recent winner. On the first report released since Arizona’s Democratic Presidential Preference Election, Democrats have increased their registration numbers by 15,307 to 32.5% of registered voters. The data implies that most of these gains came from voters not registered with a political party. Unaffiliated voters, also commonly referred to as Independents, lost 9,561 voters in the same period, bringing them to 31.8%. Republicans, meanwhile, increased 10,594.
