    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday raised concerns about efforts to ban Chinese-owned social media app TikTok in the U.S., saying it would only serve to empower Meta ’s Facebook platform. “Without TikTok, you can make Facebook bigger, and I consider Facebook to be an enemy of the people,” *** Acknowledging his concerns around national security and data privacy over TikTok, Trump said, “there’s a lot of good and there’s a lot of bad” with the platform. “There are a lot of people on TikTok that love it. There are a lot of young kids on TikTok who...

    Donald Trump won’t deliver his own closing statement at his New York civil fraud trial after all — after the judge said he needed to stick to “relevant, material facts.” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron emailed Trump attorney Christopher Kise Wednesday saying he was assuming the 77-year-old former president wouldn’t agree to the “lawful limits” and “therefore, he will not be speaking in court tomorrow.” Kise first notified the judge in a January 4 email that after the lawyers give their arguments in the $370 million case on Thursday, “President Trump plans to present argument at closing as well,”...

    The nation's largest annual conference for Millennial and Gen-Z conservatives, AmericaFest, drew tens of thousands of attendees who seem divided on who should win the 2024 nomination—a troubling sign for the former president. As Trump acolytes, like his eldest son Donald Trump Jr. and unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, sang praises for Trump's 2024 campaign, many event speakers avoided endorsing the former president and interviews with attendees revealed that many aren't prepared to commit to another Trump term just yet. The four-day event in Phoenix, Arizona, is a glaring red flag for Trump's campaign. It signals there may not be...
  • Did SocialSecurity hurt the GOP tonight? Repubs have to stop trying to cut it. (and the ARE trying - with age raise and “means testing”)

    This summer, the House GOP Study Committee unveiled a budget plan that would raise eligibility age for Social Security and talked about reducing payments for the well-off. Folks, those are cuts - so it allowed Dems to run ads that GOP threatens Social Security I know seniors who vote on this issue because they’re not rich and they don’t have comfortable government or congressional pensions. The GOP doesnt talk about cutting foreign aid or military bases, only “entitlements” for middle class Americans Trump told them to stop that, but they didn’t listen In the modern , post - FDR America,...
  • SHOCK POLL: DeSantis Within Single Digits of Trump in New National GOP Primary Survey

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is within single digits of ex-President Donald Trump in a new national poll, the closest he’s been in this or any other reputable poll — and that’s before Tuesday’s bombshell testimony. A sample of Republican and Republican-leaning respondents to a new Yahoo! News/YouGov poll were asked “Who would you rather see as the Republican nominee for President in 2024?” and given a choice between Trump and DeSantis. Among registered voters, 45 percent prefer Trump, while 36 percent prefer DeSantis — a nine-point difference that normally wouldn’t seem very close. But for Trump, in a reputable Republican...

    The Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare—the American Health Care Act—finally came up for a final vote in the House. First put forward by Speaker Paul Ryan in 2009, it offered few surprises to Republicans. And the effort itself was very familiar, as Republicans had voted over 60 times to repeal Obamacare since its passage eight years ago. Yet, when the time came to exercise the prerogative of the majority and finally repeal and replace President Obama’s deeply flawed social program, Republicans came up short. Over the past two weeks, moderate Republicans argued that they could not vote for...

    i'm not a leftist my left views: banning all guns because they are the culprits in most violent crime, pro choice though you pay your own way, essential services should be government services like police, fire, water, highways. my center views: no gay marriage but allow domestic partnerships, a compromise to make everybody happy. my right views: eliminating hud, dept of education, and well over half of government agencies. government agencies not eliminated would be mostly shrunk and made more efficient. favoring school choice. repealing obamacare and leaving insurance to the free market. eliminating or weakening most government regulations. foreign...

    SCOTUS: How to make Alberto Gonzales acceptable to the base. (Especially the Pro-Life base) Some random thoughts and more....... As reported by NRO, et al: "Speaking in Tallahassee yesterday, AG Alberto Gonzales sounded like someone seeking serious consideration as a Supreme Court nominee. He called Chief Justice Rehnquist a “hero” and suggested those who think he’d be significantly more moderate than other nominees are “ill-informed.”" I would suggest that there are options open to the White House to make Gonzales acceptable, but they involve at least one bold move. If it is that important to nominate him, however, they should...
