  • If Republicans Put America First, They’ll Remove Liz Cheney, Not Donald Trump

    As the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday, much praise was given to Congresswoman Liz Cheney for being one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach. Cheney is the #3 Republican in the House, which added weight to her stance. But it was her father Dick Cheney and his legacy – a legacy she clearly plans to continue – that is arguably the most impeachable offense in American history.

    According to an exit poll from Tuesday’s runoff election, a strong majority of Republican Georgia voters believe the 2020 presidential election between President Trump and Democrat Joe Biden was not conducted fairly. CNN and Edison Research for the National Election Pool teamed up to conduct an exit poll in Georgia’s Senate runoff election in which incumbent Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue tried to stave off challenges from Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. According to the exit poll, about 75 percent of Georgia Republican voters who participated in the runoff election said that the 2020 presidential election on...

    In a move that reportedly “shocked” Defense Department officials, Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered Pentagon officials to cancel scheduled meetings with the transition of President-elect Joe Biden. Axios revealed the cancellation of briefings but noted “officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action” and they could not determine “whether President Trump approved” of the move.

    President Trump called out Mitch McConnell after the Republican Senate Majority Leader congratulated Joe Biden for winning the presidential election. McConnell on Tuesday acknowledged Biden as the winner of the 2020 election for the first time, declaring that “the Electoral College has spoken.” “Yesterday, electors met in all 50 states, so, as of this morning, our country has officially a president-elect and a vice president-elect,” McConnell said.
  • Flashback: Mitch McConnell Received Thousands In Donations From Voting Machine Company Lobbyists – Including Dominion

    A report from July of 2019 indicates Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received thousands of dollars in donations from lobbyists for two of the largest electronic voting machine vendors in the United States – Election Systems & Software and Dominion Voting Systems. Newsweek reported on the donations in noting that McConnell (R-KY) had squashed two separate bills in the Senate addressing election security. The reports were based on an investigation by an outlet called ‘Sludge.’ “Several of the lobbyists working for ES&S and Dominion Voting Systems have recently made contributions to McConnell’s campaign and joint fundraising committee,” Sludge wrote.

    Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has seen enough – after the Electoral College met across the country, the top Senator congratulated Joe Biden as President-elect. President Trump has not conceded the election, and insists he will still prevail. “I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden,” McConnell said on the Senate floor on Tuesday.

    I tried to contact John Cornyn regarding his participation in the American Business Immigration Coalition meeting today, while he has refused to step up in defense of President Trump. After filling in the required fields, my contact information was not accepted. I received an error: "Request not accepted. Security Risk detected." So, as a registered voter, with no criminal background, I am prohibited from contacting my senator. What's up with this? Are any other Texans who subscribe to true conservative principles receiving the same error? Or is my sharing of Stephen Bannon's War Room and other posts to facebook prohibiting...

    “Today, an emergency appeal was filed in the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the election results in Pennsylvania. This appeal raises serious legal issues, and I believe the Court should hear the case on an expedited basis. “The Pennsylvania Constitution requires in-person voting, except in narrow and defined circumstances. Late last year, the Pennsylvania Legislature passed a law that purported to allow universal mail-in voting, notwithstanding the Pennsylvania Constitution’s express prohibition. “This appeal argues that Pennsylvania cannot change the rules in the middle of the game. If Pennsylvania wants to change how voting occurs, the state must follow the law to...

    The Republican establishment is sitting back, resting on their laurels. They are entirely convinced that Joe Biden will be the next president and they will control the Senate. These Republican quislings are sadly mistaken. If Republicans don’t act now to make the case before the American people and the Federal court system that the election has been improperly stolen, the Democrats will easily steal three more Senate seats. First, they will find the ballots necessary to defeat Thom Tillis in North Carolina. Then, they will move to steal two more Senate seats in the upcoming Georgia runoffs using the same...

    The chairman of the New Mexico Republican Party said on Saturday that Donald Trump will win the state’s five electoral college votes in the presidential election next week. “What do you think the president’s chances in New Mexico on Tuesday?,” Matt Boyle, Breitbart’s Washington political editor, asked New Mexico GOP Chairman Steve Pearce on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday. “The president called about ten days ago to ask that exact question,” Pearce said. “I told him, ‘Sir, you’re going to win on election day. Our job is keeping the win for you,’ keeping them from cheating their way into defeating...

    Elections for 35 U.S. Senate seats will take place in 2020.[1] Ballotpedia has identified 16 races as general election battlegrounds. Of the 16 seats, four have Democratic incumbents and 12 have Republican incumbents heading into the election. These battleground seats were selected by examining the results of the 2016 presidential election in the state, whether the incumbent was seeking re-election, and whether the incumbent was serving his or her first term in the Senate. Race ratings from the Cook Political Report, Sabato's Crystal Ball, and Inside Elections with Nathan Gonzales were also considered. For more information on our methodology, click...

    On Friday, after U.S. Senate candidate Mark Ronchetti blasted Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and her cousin, Ben Ray Luján for their actions banning in-person campaigning, Ben Ray distances himself from Lujan Grisham, claiming they two are not related. Luján tweeted, “While I respect my friend, our governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, we’re not cousins. This may come as a surprise to you, but not all Hispanic people with the same last name are related.” It appears Luján was trying to claim Ronchetti thinks every Hispanic with the last name “Luján” is related for linking the two together. Lujan Grisham also commented...

    SANTA FE – With New Mexico’s general election just over three months away, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has sparked criticism – and praise – by urging New Mexico political parties to forbid their candidates from door-to-door campaigning. During a Thursday news conference, Lujan Grisham said door-knocking, long a staple of political campaigns, was “hugely problematic” given the close proximity between voters and candidates amid a recent surge of coronavirus cases. “That is just a terrible idea in a COVID world,” she said. While the Democratic Party said this week it has already been focused on running largely virtual campaigns, state...

    Next Tuesday, Alabama Republicans voters will go to the polls for a Senate Republican primary runoff election. Alabama is thought of as a conservative state yet is currently being represented by Democrat Doug Jones. How did that happen? Could the same result happen again? Approximately three years ago, Republicans nominated Judge Roy Moore to run in a special election to fill the seat vacated by Senator Jeff Sessions when he became the US Attorney General. Judge Moore was a well-known yet controversial figure in Alabama government. And Alabama Republicans decided to make him their candidate for Senate even though other...

    While everyone is focusing on the Presidential race and the electoral college this year, some GOP strategists are getting a bit nervous about the Senate. Of the upper chamber seats up for grabs, the GOP is defending more of them that look potentially vulnerable if Democrats get some momentum going. This is probably even more important than the question of who wins the White House. If Donald Trump manages to lose his bid for a second term, a GOP Senate majority is the only thing that would act as a check on the new Democratic president’s agenda, whether that...
