  • Report: Senate Republicans Warn McConnell Ahead of Impeachment Trial

    Senate Republicans are reportedly firing warning shots ahead of the looming impeachment trial for former President Trump, suggesting that they will no longer be able to support Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as leader if he votes to convict the former president. McConnell has yet to determine how he will vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, stating in a letter earlier this month that he intends to “listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.” His refusal to reveal his leanings and recent determination that Trump and “other powerful people” essentially “provoked” the January...
  • Mitch McConnell: Joe Biden’s Amnesty Is ‘Rough Day … for American Workers’

    Amnesty for illegal immigrants is bad for American workers, according to a tweet from GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. “A proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty? Rough ‘day one’ for American workers,” said the tweet. The failed Paris deal will hurt American families while China and Russia grow emissions. The Keystone cancellation will kill union jobs and hurt U.S. energy security. And a proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty? Rough "day one" for American workers. — Leader McConnell (@LeaderMcConnell) January 21, 2021 The tweet is McConnell’s first mention of immigration on his Twitter account....
  • Conclusion from the Election: Republicans are More Dangerous that Democrats

    Again, in the spirit of getting something out of this mess, I don't think it's debatable anymore that Republicans are more dangerous than Democrats. Democrats are plain about their agenda. Republicans laid in wait for their moment, and they took the mask off. Look at people like Cotton, Thune, Graham - people who we thought when Newt came on the scene would permanently give Conservatism a voice - they all went Uniparty. I guess another way to say this, and to make this more debatable, is to say any aid given to the GOP works against Constitutional Conservatives. It's really...

    President Joe Biden’s inauguration marks not only a new administration’s beginning but also a new chapter for the loyal opposition. The Grand Old Party lost the White House while picking up U.S. House seats, holding half the Senate, and adding to its numbers in state legislative chambers. These conflicting outcomes leave Republicans facing the difficult task of cementing blue-collar Trump voters into their ranks while regaining strength in the suburbs and making inroads with an increasingly diverse electorate. To rebuild, Republicans must decide what their party stands for. The way forward begins with clarifying what the GOP’s answers should be...

    Three former U.S. presidents on Wednesday recorded a remarkable video message for their friend Joe Biden, promising to help him with whatever he needed and wishing him and the country well. In a strong sign of unity, much needed after the divisive last four years, the two Democrats - Barack Obama and Bill Clinton - and a Republican, George W. Bush, spoke of their hopes for the future. Obama, 59; Clinton, 74; and Bush, also 74, have all known Biden for many years and the trio wished him well.

    Former President George W. Bush called Rep. Jim Clyburn (R-SC) a “savior” at the inauguration of Joe Biden on Wednesday. Biden won the Democrat nomination despite having significant cognitive impairments due in large part due to the endorsement of Clyburn, who had no problem giving his blessing for a total derelict to run the country. “I know Joe Biden. I know his character, his heart, and his record. Joe Biden has stood for the hard-working people of South Carolina. We know Joe. But more importantly, he knows us,” Clyburn wrote in a tweet prior to the crucial South Carolina primary....

    House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart News exclusively on Wednesday morning that Democrat President-elect Joe Biden should drop his push to grant amnesty to every illegal alien in America and instead focus his incoming administration on getting Americans back to work with millions still reeling from the coronavirus pandemic. Biden, who will be sworn in as president on Wednesday at noon, is intending to roll out an amnesty plan on his first day and press Congress to grant the prize of American citizenship to the tens of millions of illegal aliens present in the country.

    In one of his final acts as majority leader, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is pressuring Democrats to keep the filibuster — the procedural tool that liberals and progressives are eager to to do away with so President-elect Joe Biden’s legislative priorities can be approved more easily over GOP opposition. McConnell has told Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer that retaining the legislative filibuster is important and should be part of their negotiations for a power-sharing agreement in the narrowly divided Senate. Schumer and McConnell met Tuesday to begin hammering out the details of organizing the chamber, which will be split...

    Vice President Mike Pence and the top two Republicans in Congress, soon-to-be Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, plan to skip President Donald Trump's departure ceremony on Wednesday morning. Trump, bucking tradition, will depart from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for his home in Florida at 8 a.m. ET without meeting with President-elect Joe Biden or attending his inauguration ceremony later in the day. In most previous years, the outgoing president has met with the incoming president and first lady at the White House. After attending their successors' inauguration ceremonies, former presidents often depart from...

    DONALD TRUMP has spent the two months since his electoral defeat furiously trying and consistently failing to overturn the results. Armchair psychiatrists claim that Mr Trump’s lifelong fear of being seen as a loser has inspired his battle against democracy. But another motive is possible: at the stroke of noon on January 20th, the legal shield that Mr Trump has wielded to stave off lawsuits will vanish, exposing him to an abundance of civil and criminal legal peril. The most serious trouble Mr Trump faces may be in his former home town, where the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus Vance, has...

    Republican Party establishment strategist Karl Rove is informing President Donald Trump that he will likely be impeached unless he stops talking about electoral fraud. Rove is trying to use the president’s precarious position following the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol to pressure him into folding. He appeared on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace to deliver the threat. 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...

    Republican senators are wrestling over what they want their party’s future relationship with Donald Trump to be after he leaves office on Wednesday. Faced with a deeply divided Senate Republican conference, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is giving his colleagues free rein to vote their conscience when the Senate tries Trump on charges that he incited an insurrection. McConnell is telling colleagues that he himself hasn’t decided whether to vote to convict Trump on a House-passed article of impeachment and associates describe the GOP leader “as furious” over that attack on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob. The New...

    At least half of the eight GOP senators who voted against President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victory will be attending the inauguration Wednesday in Washington to support the peaceful transfer of power, Fox News has learned. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who spearheaded the Jan. 6 effort to toss out electoral votes for Biden, will attend the official swearing-in at the Capitol. Sens. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., and Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., who joined with Cruz in objecting to Biden's victory before a Joint Session of Congress, also will attend Biden's inauguration, their offices confirmed. And Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., who voted to...

    Driving into DCTuesday morning January 5, 2021 I was struck by a couple things as I drove into the DC Metro Area: 1. The wealth, and 2. Residents dutifully wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart.After a brief stop at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, I noticed how our founding forefather’s estate seemed modest in comparison to many suburban DC homes. Regarding masks, everyone in DC proper seemed to be wearing masks and keeping their 6 foot distance like obedient subjects of a dictitorial King…that is, until a millon or so Trump supporters arrived.Who were these Trump supporters? Most of them...

    If they won’t stand against a rigged presidential election, they certainly won’t stand against Joe Biden and the Democrats.It should surprise no one that the Republican Senate—the most inept collection of politicians in recent memory—will end the Trump era in a state of disarray, discord, and dysfunction.What Americans have witnessed over the past four years, as I’ve written several times, is a textbook example of political power squandered. Republican senators, rather than maximize the unexpected gift of a Republican White House, Senate, and House of Representatives to advance long-promised “conservative” policies, wasted the opportunity while giving political cover to both...
