  • Trump is wrong: abortion opponents are looking for a national leader

    By forming the Supreme Court majority that would finally reverse Roe v. Wade and restore the right of the people and their elected representatives to protect unborn children and their mothers in the law, President Trump can truly be called the most consequential pro-life president in history. ... Since the 2022 midterms, however, a narrative has taken hold that the life issue costs Republicans elections and is better left to the states, anyway – a narrative that threatens this great accomplishment. With policy platforms suddenly having very real consequences, many candidates became fearful, listened to consultants and opted for the...

    Ronna McDaniel, the former head of the Republican National Committee (RNC), will join NBC News as a contributor. McDaniel will appear on “Meet The Press” this Sunday, giving her first interview since resigning as head of the RNC earlier this year. McDaniel is expected to be featured as part of election coverage on NBC and on the network’s sister cable channel, MSNBC. “It couldn’t be a more important moment to have a voice like Ronna’s on the team,” Carrie Budoff Brown, who leads political coverage at NBC, wrote in a memo shared with The New York Times. McDaniel became RNC...

    Around 800 delegates from the bipartisan group unanimously approved the plan for a 2024 'unity ticket' to take on Biden and Donald Trump in November at a virtual gathering on Friday. Puck reported that No Labels leadership has decided a Republican must be on the top of the ticket to prevent Trump from being reelected instead. The lack of an obvious candidate hasn't derailed the operation On Tuesday, Axios reported that ahead of Friday's virtual convention a super PAC related to the effort was asking donors for dollars. No Labels itself is a 501(c)(4) and can't run a traditional presidential...

"The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition," McDaniel said in her resignation announcement, ABC News reported Monday. "I remain committed to winning back the White House and electing Republicans up and down the ballot in November."

    Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has officially announced her plans to step down next month. McDaniel, 50, who has held the post for seven years, said she plans to resign on March 8. “Some of my proudest accomplishments include firing Nancy Pelosi, winning the popular vote in 2022, creating an Election Integrity Department, building the committee’s first small dollar grassroots donor program, strengthening our state parties through our Growing Republican Organizations to Win program, expanding the Party through minority outreach at our community centers, and launching Bank Your Vote to get Republicans to commit to voting early,” she said...

    The New York Post ^ | 02/25/2024 | Ryan King
    Former President Donald Trump’s campaign slammed two draft resolutions *** The first resolution would mandate the RNC remain neutral in the nominating contest until he secures the necessary 1,215 delegates, while the second would ensure the party doesn’t foot his legal bills.“The primary is over and it is the RNC’s sole responsibility to defeat Joe Biden and win back the White House,” senior Trump campaign adviser Chris LaCivita said in a statement. *** Trump is also pushing for his daughter-in-law Lara Trump to serve as party co-chair, and North Carolina GOP Chair Michael Whatley to replace Ronna McDaniel as the...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who voted twice to convict former President Trump on impeachment charges, is ruling out voting for Trump in 2024, citing a court’s finding that the former president sexually abused E. Jean Carroll in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the 1990s. Romney’s announcement that he won’t vote for Trump isn’t surprising. But it does show him sharpening his rhetoric against the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination by saying the reason for his opposition is a Manhattan jury’s finding last year that Trump sexually abused and defamed Carroll, awarding her $5 million in damages. A New...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on Thursday floated failed presidential candidate Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a potential running mate if he were to jump into the presidential race on a third-party ticket. If Manchin enters the race with Romney, they would siphon votes from President Joe Biden, 81, potentially dooming the president’s reelection campaign. “Hypothetically, if I was picking my running mate, really who I would ask right now is Mitt Romney,” Manchin said in Cleveland during his “listening tour.”

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) defended Joe Biden’s mental capacity and criticized Special Counsel Robert Hur in remarks to liberal media reporters on Friday. Speaking to a HuffPost reporter, Romney said, “I thought he did a good job in the press conference,” Biden held Thursday night to defend himself from allegations of serious memory issues made in the special counsel’s report on Biden’s criminal mishandling of classified documents. However, Romney noted that Biden’s age, 81 is a “huge issue” in the 2024 election, while also taking a shot at President Trump’s age. Romney attacked Special Counsel Hur in comments to Raw...

    redstate ^ | 1/31/2024 | Jennifer Van Laar
    A little over a year ago, a RedState exclusive investigation into spending at the Republican National Committee revealed that millions of donor dollars were spent on things like floral arrangements, private jets, limousines, tickets to Broadway shows, high-end retail stores, and more. As I wrote then, frugality has long been a conservative principle, even at the RNC. Back in 2010, RNC Chair Michael Steele was heavily criticized and eventually lost his position because donors were angry about what they believed was luxurious spending on private jets, floral arrangements, chauffeur services, and member meetings in expensive tropical locales. Donors were used...

    RINO Senator Mitt Romney (UT) trashed ‘out of touch’ voters who still support Trump even though ‘a jury found Trump raped a woman.’CNN’s Manu Raju on Wednesday said he asked Mitt Romney about the Iowa caucus entrance polls showing that a “majority of GOP caucusgoers didn’t believe that Joe Biden was elected legitimately.” (snip)“I think a lot of people in this country are out of touch with reality and will accept anything Donald Trump tells them. You had a jury that said that Donald Trump raped a woman. And that doesn’t seem to be moving the needle. There’s a lot...

    When Mitt Romney announced his intended retirement from the U.S. Senate on Sept. 13, 2023, the Atlantic published an excerpt from his upcoming biography, in which the 2012 Republican presidential nominee told author McKay Coppins, “A very large portion of my party really doesn’t believe in the Constitution.” This claim would have been startling 15 years ago. For decades, the Republican Party has been the party of conservatism and a champion for the Constitution. Romney is clear that Donald Trump, who leads what he calls a “populist” and “demagogic” portion of the party, is to blame. And Romney is not...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, on Sunday said he won’t be supporting former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election, and he wouldn’t rule out voting for President Joe Biden. Romney, a frequent critic of Trump, heavily rebuked the former president in an exclusive interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” He said Trump is “dangerous for the country” because he carries “authoritarian rulings and interests,” and called him “a human gumball machine” that spouts out unfiltered thoughts to the public. Asked by host Kristen Welker if he’d vote for Biden, given what he said about Trump, Romney said: “I’m...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump had a dangerous “authoritarian approach.” Romney said, “I do think you can look at his record as president and particularly in the last months of his presidency and say, ‘This is a dangerous approach. It’s an authoritarian approach.’ That gives me far more concern than him playing to the crowd as he did.” He continued, “I think if you can look at the last few months of his presidency, you’d suggest that that’s the kind of thing you might see. That he would not...

    According to a tidbit from Politico Playbook, Ryan made a pitch for Haley to Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), chairman of the Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party, over text during a flight to D.C. According to the outlet, which reviewed photographs of the text messages, Ryan wrote, “I think now is the time for a guy like you to endorse.” The Fox News board member has long stood as an opponent of Trump, predicting in October 2022 that Trump would not be the Republican nominee in 2024. “Trump’s unelectability will be...

    Representative Kevin McCarthy, the former GOP House speaker, said that if former President Donald Trump secures the Republican nomination in 2024, as most assume he will, he ought to designate political rival Nikki Haley as his vice president. “If I was a political person, and I was going to advise somebody, you’re going to pick the vice president that’s about addition, not subtraction. So you’re not going to pick somebody that already equates to you,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told Andrew Ross Sorkin. “Now if I was picking for purely political decisions, what it looks like today is the anti-Trump vote is...
  • Is this the smoking gun to finally remove Ronna McDaniel?

    11/28/2023 1:41:16 PM PST · by Tench_Coxe · 30 replies
    If there’s one RINO bum whom the America First base would love to see removed, it’s Ronna McDaniel. When this woman isn’t spending thousands on plastic surgery and fancy new clothes, she’s busy advancing the interests of the GOP establishment. Thanks to Ronna, we’re stuck with RINO candidates who have zero interest in promoting the America First agenda, and that’s precisely how she wants to keep it. Unfortunately, President Trump hasn’t fully thrown his weight behind removing Ronna, and that’s understandable to a certain extent. After all, she’s firmly entrenched in the RNC, and ousting her would be a messy...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) signaled that nearly any candidate in the 2024 field, of either party, would be an “upgrade” over another term for former President Trump. “I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans — maybe not Vivek [Ramaswamy] — but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them,” the retiring senator said Friday in an interview with CBS’s Norah O’Donnell. “I’d be happy to vote for a number of the Democrats too,” he continued. “It would be an upgrade, in my opinion, from Donald Trump...

    Then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump railed against “so-called Christians” and “pieces of s—” evangelicals who supported Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in the 2016 Iowa caucuses, according to a forthcoming book. At the time, allies of Cruz had been making hay of Trump’s flub before an audience at Virginia’s Liberty University, a conservative evangelical college, in which he botched a question about his favorite Bible verse and replied that it came from the book of “Two Corinthians,” rather than “Second Corinthians.” “The laughter and ridicule were embarrassing enough for Trump,” Tim Alberta writes in his new book, “The Kingdom, the Power,...

    The Federalist ^ | 10/30/23 | MARK HEMINGWAY
    Last month, Mitt Romney announced he will retire from the Senate after one term. Romney, who is 76, cited his age. That was undoubtedly a major consideration for a guy with a platoon of grandchildren. It’s also true that Romney is unpopular with Utah voters and had no real chance of reelection after becoming the most prominent elected Republican antagonist of Donald Trump. With Romney’s 30-year political career ending with a whimper, there would naturally be a forceful attempt to shape his legacy as something other than a failure. Fortunately, Romney already made plans for this. The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins,...
