    Three senators announced within hours of each other on Thursday that they had tested positive for the coronavirus, despite each being fully vaccinated. Sens. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Angus King (I-Maine) and John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.) said they had tested positive in what is known as a breakthrough case, when fully vaccinated individuals test positive for COVID-19. It marks three known breakthrough cases among senators within 24 hours. The positive tests come as senators have been back in their home states for roughly a week and aren't expected to return to Washington, D.C., until mid-September.

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Thursday that it is “crystal clear” to everyone involved that former President Donald Trump will not be convicted in his Senate impeachment trial. “I think the end result of this impeachment trial is crystal clear to everybody … Donald Trump will be acquitted,” Cruz predicted Thursday. “And every person in the senate chamber understands there are not the votes to convict him.”

    We are in a war in which our Iranian enemy had pleaded with unspecified individuals or groups for help removing President Donald Trump from office. There were even unofficial reward offers, such as a multi-million dollar bounty , for killing President Trump. The Democrats' attempt to use impeachment to remove President Trump from office would have given our Iranian enemy's leaders what they said they wanted . Wouldn't that mean the Democrats would have given aid and comfort to our Iranian enemy? Isn't giving our enemy ''Aid and Comfort " what the Constitution calls "treason" ( Art III Sec 3)...

    Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told “Just the News” on Friday that she expects the Democrat-led Senate and House will vote in favor of statehood for the District of Columbia and send the bill to President Joe Biden’s desk, who has expressed support for D.C. statehood in the past. “The nation’s capital, the federal enclave, continues to exist as the nation’s capital and everything outside of those new boundaries becomes the 51st state. Our congresswoman – we had our first successful vote on statehood in the House of Representatives last year. She reintroduced the bill. She has a record number...

    This going to be hard to live down. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer got a rise out of lawmakers on the Senate floor Friday when he fumbled his words and said that they will have to decide if former President Donald Trump incited the “erection” against the US. “Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection against the United States,” Schumer said.

    President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said that as a member of the president's defense team in his upcoming impeachment trial he's preparing to argue that the president's claims of voter fraud did not constitute incitement to violence because the claims are true. "They basically claimed that anytime [Trump] says voter fraud, voter fraud — or I do, or anybody else — we're inciting violence; that those words are fighting words because it's totally untrue," Giuliani told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. "Well, if you can prove that it's true, or at least true enough so it's...

    Republican senators say they feel a sense of growing regret over not standing up to President Trump sooner — a day after a violent mob ransacked the Capitol building in one of the darkest and most humiliating days in U.S. history. One Republican senator who requested anonymity to discuss his conversations with GOP colleagues acknowledged GOP lawmakers should have served as a stronger check on the president over the past four years

    As we just reported, almost a dozen more Senators will now be joining Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and dozens of House members in objecting to the electoral count on Jan. 6. That’s caused a reaction from some on the left, including from Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) who termed the senators who said that they would be objecting “enemies of democracy.” Name & shame these enemies of democracy:Ted Cruz (TX)Ron Johnson (WI)James Lankford (OK)Steve Daines (MT)John Kennedy (LA)Marsha Blackburn (TN)Mike Braun (IN)Cynthia Lummis (WY)Roger Marshall (KS)Bill Hagerty (TN)Tommy Tuberville (AL)— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) January 2, 2021This of course is nonsense,...

    Vice President Mike Pence said he welcomes efforts by lawmakers to challenge Electoral College results in the upcoming congressional joint session on Jan. 6, when the votes are formally counted, according to a statement sent by his chief of staff to reporters. Vice President Chief of Staff Marc Short issued the statement on Saturday saying that Pence, who will be presiding over the Jan. 6 session as president of the senate, is open to considering planned objections by Republican House members and senators to Electoral College votes cast for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Short added that the vice president...

    Sen. Josh Hawley (R. MO) officially stated that he will object to the Electoral College vote count to be held in the Senate on January 6. May this courageous man be the first of many Senators to take a stand against the overwhelming evidence of election fraud. If neither candidate wins enough Electoral College votes on January 6, Trump should win – and it’s all in the Constitution without the need for any strained statutory interpretations.Let me start with an overview of what happens on January 6. It’s crucial to appreciate how this can end if Hawley is joined by...
  • Either One Stands Up, or You All Go Down

    Here’s a suggested communication from y’all fortunate enough to have a non-Progressive US Senator “representing your interests”. BTW, I live in Ca so there is no sense in my trying this since the two most worthless twits in the Senate were put there by my neighbors. Identify your Senator; RINO, Independent, or real conservative; and send them a missive emphasizing the following: if not so much as a single Senator stands up and formally objects (along with expected Representatives) to the electors, you all go down. Pick lots if you must. We know that regardless of the outcome, the Senator...

    A GOP member of Congress again pushed both Texas senators to object during the counting of Electoral College votes on Jan. 6.“I’m Lance Gooden. I am proud to be the U.S. Congressman for Texas’ 5th Congressional District,” wrote Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas) on Saturday. “I am also proud to stand with @realDonaldTrump by OBJECTING on January 6th. I call on every fellow member of Congress to do the same. RT!”In a follow-up tweet, Gooden called on Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) to join him in objecting to the vote-counting of certain key states’ electors.“We have an obligation...

    NOQ Report ^ | 12/26/2020 | JD Rucker
    One of the things that irked me the most about most Republicans and even many conservatives over the past four years is their support of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. They would often tout his ability to get Trump-nominations, particularly in the judiciary, pushed through at a “record” pace. He was simply doing the most basic requirement of his job. Praising him for getting nominations on the book is like praising a middle manager at small company for writing an employee schedule every week.McConnell’s opportunity to shine came when Republicans held control of the House, Senate, and White House from...

    Sunday December 20, 2020 3:10 PM According to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Republican lawmakers who refuse to accept President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory “are bordering on sedition and treason.” “Each of us who are serving as senators took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. One of the most fundamental principles of the Constitution is the peaceful transition of power,” Shaheen said. “These senators and members of Congress who have refused to acknowledge that we had a free and fair election in which Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by over 7 million votes, are bordering...

    The Constitution provides for a remedy in case there is any suspicion of fraud in a Presidential election. A single Senator can object to the seating of electors as valid and the election will be thrown to the States. There are signs that Sen Majority Leader McConnell is willing to suppress the votes of Senators against the election. No doubt they are pushing the line that changing the election outcome now would let loose Antifa and BLM, the dogs of war of the Dem. Party and the MSM. Not to worry--they are domiciled in blue states so let them loose...
