    Veteran Republican strategist Karl Rove warned House Republicans that they will only hurt themselves if they allow the government to shut down this fall amid budget battles within their conference and with the Senate and White House. “Republicans are going to shoot themselves in the foot in the run-up to the 2024 election if they continue to think that shutdowns are a great way to put themselves in front of the American people,” Rove said in a Fox News interview on Sunday.

    Republican strategist and Fox News contributor Karl Rove suggested former President Trump should show up to the first GOP debate, which he has floated the idea of skipping. Fox News’s Bill Hemmer asked Rove whether he would attend the first Republican debate next week if he were Trump, who has yet to announce whether he will attend. Rove said he would, noting that Trump will still face some problems if he shows up. “There are dangers … if he shows up, he will be attacked by everybody in one way, shape or form,” he said on “America’s Newsroom.” He said...

    Former George W. Bush aide Karl Rove warned in a new op-ed that former President Trump’s federal indictment over his mishandling of classified documents will come at a steep cost to himself and the country. “No matter the outcome, America will pay a high price for the former president’s reckless petulance. So will he,” Rove wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. Rove, who served as a senior adviser and deputy chief of staff to Bush, wrote that the country has been “plunged into an unprecedented crisis” after Trump was indicted on 37 felony counts last week. The former president...

    Fox Corp boss, Rupert Murdoch has officially taken a side in the Republican race leading up to the 2024 National elections, and this time he is backing Ron DeSantis.According to Vanity Fair, the conservative news mogul invited the Florida Governor to his Vineyard in Bel Air, California for dinner in 2020 and assured him that Fox would support his potential presidential run in 2024.Earlier this year, signs of this sentiment became more apparent as Fox implemented a soft ban on Trump and began featuring DeSantis more frequently.Additionally, during this time, the Dominion lawsuit loomed over the news corporation, prompting it...

    Put a fork in the opposition denials to what was increasingly obvious; it’s over. Last summer we saw the fingerprints of the professional republican apparatus all over the construct that was creating the Ron DeSantis 2024 effort. The data was all going in one direction, all of the constructs were identical to the Karl Rove playbook with the single addition of the Republican Governor’s Association as a participant. As the months moved forward the Rovian elements became more and more clear. The DeSantis supporters tried to deny it, but the truth of the issue is just too obvious. Now, insider...

    Former Bush 43 adviser Karl Rove said Monday on FNC’s “The Story” that former President Donald Trump needs to “move on” from claiming he won the 2020 presidential election. Sunday at CPAC in Maryland, Trump said, “We are never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush.” Anchor Martha MacCallum said, “President Trump went after you at one point, went after other Republicans and said, you know, that’s not the direction we’re going anymore. We’re moving hard on America first, and this is the last battle. Everyone knows it. The country could be lost forever.”

    'Bush's Brain' says CPAC straw poll would be 'completely meaningless.' More evidence is emerging that Karl Rove is a big fan of Ron DeSantis as the 2024 GOP Presidential Primary field shakes out. In comments on the Fox News Channel’s America’s Newsroom, the former George W. Bush adviser lauded DeSantis for his decision to skip the Conservative Political Action Conference later this week and to “very smartly” take a “measured” approach toward a 2024 rollout. “Take, for example, this weekend. Rather than going to CPAC — which is a completely pro-Donald Trump crowd and having a number at the end...

    Harry Whittington, the man who former Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot while they were hunting quail on a Texas ranch 17 years ago, has died. He was 95. Whittington died at his home Saturday in Austin, family friend Karl Rove said Monday. Before Whittington was thrust into the national spotlight after the accidental shooting, the attorney was long known for helping build the Republican Party in Texas into the dominant political force it is today and for being the man governors went to when they needed to clean up troubled state agencies. […] Cheney was criticized for breaking a...

    The midterm elections are officially over after Sen. Raphael Warnock defeated GOP nominee Herschel Walker by nearly 3 percentage points in Georgia’s Senate runoff. While Democrats celebrate their 51st seat in the upper chamber, Karl Rove, a veteran GOP strategist and Fox News contributor, says the Republican loss was avoidable. "It shouldn't have been," Rove told Fox News Digital. "We had a terrible candidate who was well-meaning but plagued with a lot of scandal and was not particularly good on the campaign trail." Republicans' loss in the Peach State boils down to poor candidate quality at the hands of President...

    Karl Rove’s new “Conservative Victory Project” is nothing but an anti-Tea Party hit team that is gunning for our candidates. So, grassroots conservatives must now all band together and fight back. We must defend the Tea Party! .....We formed this brand new PAC to help Tea Party candidates challenge entrenched big-government Republicans for the nomination. But, in light of recent events, we need to also be ready to defend our conservative incumbents as well. The establishment is gunning for us. They want to crush our movement. We have to fight back!

    After Tuesday’s elections, entities owned and managed by Rupert Murdoch and his son Lachlan have lined up against President Donald J. Trump. There is now a “coordinated effort” across the New York Post, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal against Trump. The Post is running columns by longtime Trump hater John Podhoretz and gun grabber Piers Morgan bashing the 45th President. Podhoretz’s piece also lashes out at Blake Masters as an “election-denier,” and ludicrously asserts that we shouldn’t support candidates Mitch McConnell doesn’t like. Morgan, meanwhile, is urging Republicans to “dump Trump.” Unfortunately for him, Americans conservatives don’t tend...

    Pollster Frank Luntz said Friday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that former President Donald Trump should “take a very long vacation” after several candidates he endorsed lost their midterm runs. Luntz said, “Donald Trump is still the number one Republican in America today. There’s no doubt about it. But his overall patina has been flawed considerably or darkened considerably. And in the Atlanta — the Atlanta suburbs, he is a negative. And this is something that his candidates did not really understand. And I’m not convinced that he understands either, that for every one voter who thinks he’s God, you’ve got one...

    CFG-President David McIntosh said during a press conference on Wednesday that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell failed to make the November midterms an indictment of President Joe Biden and Senate Democrats. One reporter asked McIntosh what McConnell’s standing will be now that it remains unclear if Senate Republicans will take back the Senate majority. He also mentioned that Sen. Josh Hawley said he would not support McConnell for Senate majority leader. McIntosh said he does not believe that McConnell would face a serious leadership challenge; however, he said that McConnell failed to present a case for Senate Republicans as they...

    The red wave never came. What happened in Tuesday’s midterms was closer to a trickle. As of this writing, we still don’t know definitively which party controls the House. It’s likely to be the Republicans but not by much. Before Tuesday, the House had 222 Democrats (that includes two vacant Democratic seats) and 213 Republicans (including one vacant Republican seat). As of 4 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, the Associated Press had called 206 seats for the GOP and Republicans were poised to win 18 other contests. That would leave the GOP with 224 seats to the Democrats’ 211. It will...

    It’s no secret that Karl Rove and the Bush and Cheney families are anti-Trump. These establishment RINOs are outraged that conservative and populist voters no longer support their open border, pro-amnesty, globalist, endless war agenda. Today’s GOP voters support Trump and his populist agenda. This brings us to the latest ad released by American Crossroads PAC, an organization linked to Karl Rove and the Bushes.
