    SYCAMORE, Pa. — The one thing all the guys know about Sara Vance is she never cries. Which is why her co-workers — all men — dropped their tools when Vance suddenly broke down in a flood of tears after she failed to shovel coal into a conveyor belt. Pregnant with her first child and just weeks before the due date, she was 1,200 feet below the surface of the earth with no easy way out.

    So here we are, faced with the re-election of President Donald Trump and the prospect of a nation still struggling against Covid-19, reeling from the ravages of a flattened economy and in pain from civil unrest and our genuine concern for how we treat one another. I, of course, disagree with Biden on many issues and policies, sometimes vigorously; and it is my fervent hope that he will pursue policies that will help our country heal. But this election is not about those issues or policies. Rather, it is about the course of a nation and the character of her...

    A granddaughter of the Rev. Billy Graham, Jerushah Duford is a committed evangelical Christian who describes herself as “pro-life.” For most of her life, she voted Republican. Yet this year, she is voting for Joe Biden and is encouraging fellow Christians to distance themselves from a president who she says is trying “to hijack our faith for votes.”

    Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray announced Wednesday that Iran and Russia are working to undermine the integrity of the 2020 election. “We would like to alert the public that we have identified that two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections,” Ratcliffe said during an evening press conference, following efforts by the intelligence and law enforcement communities to ensure the election is safe and secure. According to Ratcliffe, Iran and Russia got their hands on U.S. voter registration information, enabling the foreign adversaries to...
  • Trump berates Ben Sasse as being the 'least effective of our 53 Republican Senators' who has gone back to his 'stupid and obnoxious ways' after politician said the president 'kisses dictator's butts' in leaked audio

    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...

    Media magnate Rupert Murdoch has predicted privately that Democratic nominee Joe Biden will defeat President Donald Trump in the presidential election in a landslide victory, the Daily Beast reported Thursday. -snip- Murdoch has appeared to enjoy unhindered access to the White House, but has not spoken with Trump lately — at least for several weeks, sources confided to the Daily Beast — after Murdoch grew tired of Trump’s unending grievances about negative coverage from Fox News. Murdoch has griped about Trump in the past, suggesting in a tweet ahead of the 2016 presidential election that then-candidate Donald Trump had been...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is stressing that the country’s politics has “moved away from the spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation.” And the 2012 GOP presidential nominee warns that the "rabid attacks kindle the conspiracy mongers and the haters" to launch "dangerous action” such as the recent kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Romney, the most vocal Republican critic of President Trump in Congress, took to Twitter on Tuesday to take aim at the president.

    The political future of Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey is unknown, according to a report today, indicating that he may not run for reelection or for governor of Pennsylvania in 2022. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the news Sunday, citing two people familiar with his plans. While the 58-year-old Republican senator is expected to serve out his current term, he is not expected to seek another term or to run for governor, for which he was seen as a likely GOP candidate, according to the Inquirer. Toomey is expected to make an announcement Monday morning, spokesman Steve Kelly said. He has served...

    President Trump's new Supreme Court nomination has some Republicans fearfully remembering past (and current) justices who have changed their spots. The liberals' worst nightmare has come to pass: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died during the Trump administration. Many supporters had urged her to retire during Obama's tenure so he could appoint her leftist successor. But with arrogant defiance, Ginsburg stayed on the bench, certain, no doubt, that President Hillary Clinton would name her successor. Reality's one tough customer. Now President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We'll let all the others recount her unimpeachable credentials. Suffice to...
  • 5 GOP lawmakers oppose transfer-of-power resolution seen as thinly veiled attack on Trump

    Five Republicans are the only House members to oppose a broadly supported resolution backing a peaceful transfer of presidential power after the November election. Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Clay Higgins of Louisiana, Steve King of Iowa and Thomas Massie of Kentucky dubbed the resolution "a way for Democrats to attack the president," who so far hasn't committed to accepting the results of an election he says is ripe for fraud. Gaetz argued that the resolution is meant to "disguise the fact that [Democrats] will refuse to accept the election results unless they win."

    Growing up the daughter of a Political Science major, the Presidential Debates were the highlight of our lives every four years. And every four years, my parents' faces would droop with disappointment as every Republican candidate failed to hit their opponent where it hurt. As they politely ignored their opponent's scandals, my parents would say in disgust, "The Republicans are just too damn gentlemanly." Now we know, that wasn't true at all. They were RINOs! Republican In Name Only. They were on the same team as their opponent. George H. W. Bush (of mistress Jennifer Fitzgerald and Boys Town infamy)...

    ---SNIP--- I actually consider it a point of personal pride that I’m recognized for being among the first Republicans to reject Donald Trump. It was way back in December 2015. I told NBC’s Chuck Todd that day that I could never support Trump. I said then that he was an embarrassment to the Republican Party and our country. I said he belittles, demeans, and ridicules people who disagree with him, and that I’ve never thought that loud, obnoxious, and simpleminded solutions to complex problems are the kind of qualities we want in a president. I believe that earned me my...

    Two former Republican lawmakers wrote an op-ed on Friday explaining why they are supporting Democrat Joe Biden instead of President Trump in November, arguing Trump is "an ill-formed man who lacks basic self-control and shows no semblance of inner character." Former Reps. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii) and Mickey Edwards (R-Okla.) in an opinion for Roll Call condemned Trump's "childish name-calling, crude behavior and immature narcissism.".... Djou and Edwards said the Democratic presidential candidate is "not a perfect man, but he is a man of humble decency."

    WASHINGTON—A handful of moderate and institutionalist Senate Republicans were thrust into the spotlight Friday after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death prompted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) to say that he would seek to confirm President Trump’s nominee to replace her on the Supreme Court. The Senate’s Republicans control 53 votes compared with 47 for the Democrats, giving them enough power to muscle through a Trump nominee. Because Vice President Mike Pence can break any ties, Democrats would need to peel off four Republicans to block Mr. Trump’s pick, a difficult goal to meet given the small number of...

In late November 2016, I took a tour of the facility with five college friends who were visiting from the East Coast. The recent presidential election was much on our minds as we wandered through the building, contemplating various artifacts from Bush’s two terms in office. Although we were hardly fans of his presidency, one of my pals—fearful, like everyone in our group, of a Trump administration—got misty-eyed when reflecting upon Bush’s obvious...

    Republicans say confirming a replacement would be a problem Republican senators grew increasingly vocal in their warnings to President Donald Trump if he fires Attorney General Jeff Sessions, including threats not to vote for a replacement. Sen. Ben Sasse came to the floor Thursday afternoon to read into the Congressional Record the statement that Sessions, a former Alabama senator well-liked by his former colleagues, issued in response to criticism from Trump. Sessions was highlighting the independence of the Justice Department, and Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, wanted it to be perfectly clear that he would have the attorney general’s back. “Bizarrely,...
