    Michigan Live ^ | 1/20 | Gus Burns
    By | fburns@mlive.com Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and departing President Donald Trump share some traits in common. Both left divided communities in their political wake, enlisting devout supporters who engaged in emotional faceoffs with disgusted opposition along the way. Kilpatrick, now 50 and one of Michigan’s most notorious taxpayer-funded convicted conmen, is set to be released from prison after serving seven years of his 28-year federal prison sentence. He was originally slated to live behind prison walls until age 67 with an earliest release date of Jan. 18, 2037. That changed when the Trump administration announced Kilpatrick’s sentence will...

    “President Trump has not always chosen the right words,” Haley said during a private appearance at the Republican National Committee’s annual meeting in early January, a source told POLITICO. “He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time. He was badly wrong with his words yesterday. And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.” Haley added that the GOP must “take personal responsibility” for the disruption that’s flooded the party.

    Georgia’s new senators, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, are getting sworn in the same day the nation’s new president is giving the Democrats effective control of the 50-50 Senate. After a Capitol riot aimed at stopping the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral count, then an impeachment and scorched-earth debate on political extremism, the Peach State’s Senate runoffs of just two weeks ago seem like old news.There is, however, a common thread you can draw from Donald Trump’s actions in this election to outcomes that hurt the Republican Party, the conservative movement, and, more importantly, the country. Yes, other people were...

    Please help me understand how trump WON in a landslide yet according to this CNN article DJT never polled over 50% (CNN)Donald Trump has always been fixated on writing his name into the history books, to ensure his four years as president aren't forgotten. Well, he's done it! Trump ends his term with the lowest average job approval rating -- 41% -- of any president in the last seven-plus decades, according to Gallup. That's four points worse than the next, uh, worst -- Harry Truman, who averaged a 45% job approval score throughout his time in office. Barack Obama averaged...
  • Cuomo trashes a Trump pardon of crooked ex-Assembly boss Sheldon Silver

    New York Post ^ | January 19, 2021 | Bernadette Hogan and Bruce Golding
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday attacked President Trump over a potential pardon of Sheldon Silver, the corrupt former speaker of the New York Assembly — and suggested it could be “a favor for someone in the Jewish community.” During a radio interview in Albany, Cuomo called the notion of freeing Silver from prison — where the Manhattan Democrat is serving 6 1/2 years for a $4 million bribery and kickbacks scheme — “just confounding” and the culmination of “four years of bizarre.” “It’s almost as if he’s trying to purposefully create anarchy and desecrate the entire system on the way...

    US President Donald Trump on Monday rescinded entry bans imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic on most non-US citizens arriving from Brazil, the United Kingdom and all European Union countries. The new travel guidelines will come into effect as of January 26, the White House said in a statement. The alleviation of the ban may not last long enough for it to be implemented, though. President-elect Joe Biden gave the notion short shrift.His spokeswoman said the new administration, set to assume office on Wednesday, “does not intend to lift these restrictions.” Jen Psaki tweeted: “In fact, we plan to strengthen...

    It is infuriating that the Trump administration left so many of these things undone. I wish I could tell you that the incoming Biden administration had a genius plan for combating Covid-19, thick with ideas no one else had thought of and strategies no one else had tried. But it doesn’t. What it does have is the obvious plan for combating Covid-19, full of ideas many others have thought of and strategies it is appalling we haven’t yet tried. That it is possible for Joe Biden and his team to release a plan this straightforward is the most damning indictment...

    Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal has compared the MAGA riot to the evolution of Al-Qaeda saying in both instances people followed a 'powerful leader' who 'justified their violence', as he warned America is headed for a homegrown insurgency.McChrystal, the former commander of American troops in Afghanistan, said there are terrifying parallels between the birth of the terrorist group responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks and the violent siege on the US Capitol last week that left five dead and sent shockwaves around the world. Donald Trump has given his supporters 'legitimacy to become even more radical', he told Yahoo...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump will be convinced in the Senate with Republicans voting for impeachment if his defense is there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is keeping an open mind about the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, a big difference, sharp difference, from his clear opposition from the very start of the first impeachment trial just a year ago.

    In yet another inciting tweet from left-wing celebrities, far-left actor Alec Baldwin chose civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday to describe a “dream” he had which included a noose hanging outside of a courthouse during President Donald Trump’s “sedition” trial. Inciting his radical Twitter following, the progressive activist and Saturday Night Live and Boss Baby star took to Twitter on Friday to share his vision which included the president undergoing trial for sedition while a noose — made of recycled protective masks — hangs from a makeshift scaffold.

    The Department of Justice on Friday announced it closed an investigation into ballots that were discarded in Pennsylvania. “After a thorough investigation conducted by the FBI and prosecutors from my office, we have determined that there is insufficient evidence to prove criminal intent on the part of the person who discarded the ballots,” acting U.S. Attorney Bruce Brandler said in a statement. “Therefore, no criminal charges will be filed and the matter is closed.” Brandler recently replaced David Freed, the former U.S. attorney who last year revealed nine military absentee ballots had been tossed in Luzerne County. Freed resigned on...

    Let me be clear: the president of the United States had every right to question the counting practices, lack of transparency and rules changes without legislative approval leading up to his defeat. Questioning government is a critical component of American culture and society. It's part of why a Republican form of government can work. The problem today is that too many people ignore facts and history and regurgitate "talking points" from agenda-driven elites who control the "means of communication". When the president of the United States is not "allowed" to inspire legal and peaceful protests, then we no longer live...

    Friday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough doubled down on his argument that the Republican Party is “what we read in the history books about Hitler.” This comes in the wake of a group of President Donald Trump supporters rioting at the U.S. Capitol and members of Congress saying they fear for their lives for voting to impeach Trump. Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, said the party that belongs to Trump is “intimidating” opponents “with threats of death” and violence in support of a “fascist president.”

    RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Three Republican Virginia delegates have been stripped of their committee assignments after signing a letter last week that asked Vice President Mike Pence to nullify the state’s certified election results. 8News in Richmond learned Tuesday that Del. Mark Cole (R-Fauquier) has been removed from the Privileged and Elections committee, Del. Dave LaRock (R-Loudon) was removed from the Transportation committee and Del.

    Leftists love to throw around the word “fascist,” although half the time they don’t appear to even know what it means. Usually, it’s just a way of insulting someone unenlightened enough to disagree with them. At best, they’re calling the person a big meanie, an authoritarian. But that’s not exactly (or at least not entirely) what a “fascist” is. Perhaps, for our leftist friends, a brief primer is in order. Fascism is a political and economic system that arose in Europe following World War I. It has three primary characteristics: extreme nationalism, authoritarianism, and a state-run economy. Indeed, in terms...

    President Trump was impeached yesterday by a mostly party-line vote. Ten House Republicans did cross the picket line to back the Democratic Party’s unhealthy fetish with impeaching this president. They did it using the Russian collusion hoax. And now, this riot that erupted on Capitol Hill last week. The chaos occurred on January 6 when Congress was certifying the 2020 Electoral College results. Pro-Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol. Five people died. It renewed an impeachment push from Democrats. More Republicans were going to back it. In the Senate, Mitch McConnell reportedly is not all that upset over this current...

    President-elect Joe Biden will no longer take the Amtrak to Washington next week to be sworn in as president, two officials familiar with the planning tell CNN, a sudden change that comes amid dramatically heightened security surrounding the inauguration. A decision was made this week for Biden not to take the 90-minute ride from his namesake station in Wilmington, Delaware, officials said, with at least some of the concerns hinging on his arrival at Union Station in Washington, which is only blocks from the now heavily fortified US Capitol. Biden previously had instructed his team to keep moving forward with...
