Kevin McCarthy, Congressional Leadership Fund, and Defending Main Street spent $5 million to prevent Karoline Leavitt from winning her primary election for New Hampshire’s District 1 that was held on Tuesday.

McCarthy, GOP Elites and Super PACs dumped $5 million to stop Karoline Leavitt.

It is the same tactics the GOP elites use in every state. They can’t win on the issues so they spend MILLIONS to slander and smear MAGA Republican candidates.

MILLIONS!

Senior DOJ officials blast FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago as ‘spectacular failure’: ‘The worst of the bureaucracy in action’


By CHRIS ENLOE | August 11, 2022

A senior Justice Department official condemned the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago as a “spectacular backfire” for triggering a tsunami of backlash against the Justice Department. Two senior DOJ officials spoke with Newsweek and disclosed new details about what led up to the raid. According to one official, the FBI specifically planned to conduct the raid when former President Donald Trump was not present at Mar-a-Lago. Trump was in New York at the time of the raid, Fox News reported.

“What a spectacular backfire,” the senior DOJ official said of the FBI’s attempt to keep the raid “low-key.”

“I know that there is much speculation out there that this is political persecution, but it is really the best and the worst of the bureaucracy in action,” the official explained. “They wanted to punctuate the fact that this was a routine law enforcement action, stripped of any political overtones, and yet [they] got exactly the opposite.”

The second DOJ official told Newsweek the FBI “were seeking to avoid any media circus” but “they also created the very firestorm they sought to avoid, in ignoring the fallout.”

The officials explained the FBI had been planning the raid for weeks after receiving information from a confidential source about allegedly classified documents being stored at Mar-a-Lago. Newsweek reported the informant both identified the documents and told investigators where they were located. Importantly, the sources told Newsweek that Attorney General Merrick Garland did not have advance knowledge about the specifics of the raid. Instead, FBI Director Christopher Wray approved the raid.

“I know it’s hard for people to believe,” one of the DOJ officials said, “but this was a matter for the U.S. attorney and the FBI.”

Despite claims that Garland was not involved in the planning of the raid, Republican lawmakers are demanding that Garland and Wray face repercussions for the unprecedented raid.

“I’ve never been a fan of overusing impeachment, but I think there has to be an investigation. And if it warrants it, there’s going to have to be a look at whether or not the attorney general has misused his office for political purposes. Have they gone after a political opponent? I mean, this is beyond the pale,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Fox News.

“At a minimum, Garland must resign or be impeached. The search warrant must be published. Christoper Wray must be removed. And the FBI reformed top to bottom,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said.

Sources, Trump lawyer make eyebrow-raising accusations against FBI agents who conducted Mar-a-Lago raid: ‘Trying to shield what they’re doing’

Law enforcement sources and an attorney for former President Donald Trump are making eyebrow-raising accusations as more details about the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago are sifted through the media. The New York Post reported Tuesday the purpose of the raid was to retrieve “presidential records and evidence of classified information being stored there.”

Sources further alleged that FBI agents barred Trump’s attorneys — who arrived at Mar-a-Lago shortly after the raid began — from witnessing the search, which is unusual. Once a judge approves a search warrant, authorities have the ability to execute the warrant without consent from the person whose property is being searched, thus attorneys or the person being searched are typically allowed to witness the search. Shockingly, sources even alleged FBI agents demanded surveillance cameras be switched off, but Trump’s employees did not comply with the request.

After searching Trump’s property for nearly 10 hours, the FBI removed boxes of documents and personal mementos that Trump collected during his presidency. It is not clear what other items the FBI confiscated, the Post reported. However, sources told the Post that FBI agents searched every room — including Melania Trump’s wardrobe — and repeatedly boasted to Trump’s lawyers, “We have full access to everything. We can go everywhere.”

Secret Services agents who are stationed at Mar-a-Lago reportedly granted the FBI access to the property after likely receiving instructions from U.S. Secret Service attorneys.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that a Trump lawyer confirmed the FBI confiscated about 12 boxes of documents from a basement room. The documents were reportedly taken from the same room that FBI investigators, according to CNN, had already inspected in June.

Trump attorney Christina Bobb — one of the attorneys who responded to Mar-a-Lago after the FBI arrived — confirmed that agents were looking for documents in compliance with the Presidential Records Act and allegedly classified documents. She also described the warrant as “thin” and explained that she does not yet know the probable cause for the warrant because the affidavit remains sealed.

In another interview, Bobb suggested the search is related to other matters and the DOJ’s purported attempts to prosecute Trump.

“I think this is clearly a situation where they’re looking for a way that they can easily prosecute President Trump,” Bobb claimed. “They want to do it under a national security-type guise because they can hide things from the public and they can say, ‘Oh, we can’t tell you. We can’t give you the details because it’s confidential information, subject to national security concerns, so we can’t tell you, but we’re just going to prosecute [Trump].

“They’re trying to shield what they’re doing,” she charged.

Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired under the Trump administration, agrees the aggressive nature of the raid suggests it was about something more than documents.

“This is such a bold, such a disruptive, such an aggressive move,” McCabe said on CNN. “The idea they would do this simply because they weren’t getting the sort of compliance they were looking for out of securing the room with the documents, things like that, seems really unimaginable to me. It seems like they must have — I hope they have more than just that.”

President Trump Posts Apocalyptic Ad Mourning America Hours After FBI Raids His Home – And He Makes One Inspirational Promise

Just hours after Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida was raided by the FBI, the former president posted his eerie new ad on his social media platform late Monday night warning America is in decline and “a failing nation.” Despite the unprecedented tyranny that’s taken hold of the U.S. over the past two years, the legitimate president assures, “The best is yet to come.”

A harrowing clap of thunder is heard as Trump mournfully details the litany of dangers Americans face as tyranny takes hold in the somber ad, which opens in black and white.

TRENDING: Judge Bruce Reinhart Who Signed Warrant to Raid Trump’s Home at Mar-a-Lago Previously Worked for Jeffrey Epstein — Please Help TGP In Our Legal Quest to Get Epstein Client List

“We are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation,” Trump cautions:

We are a nation that has the highest inflation in over 40 years; where the stock market just finished the worst first half of a year in more than five decades. We are a nation that has the highest energy cost in its history and we are no longer energy independent or energy dominant, which we were just two short years ago. We are a nation that is begging Venezuela and Saudi Arabia for oil.

“We are a nation that surrendered in Afghanistan, leaving behind dead soldiers, American citizens and $85 billion worth of the finest military equipment in the world. We are a nation that allowed Russia to devastate a country, Ukraine, killing hundreds of thousands of people and it will only get worse.

We are a nation that has weaponized its law enforcement against the opposing political party, like never before — we’ve never seen anything like this.

We are a nation that no longer has a free and fair press. Fake news is about all you get.

We are a nation where free speech is no longer allowed; where crime is rampant like never before; where the economy has been collapsing; where more people died of COVID in 2021 than in 2020.

We are a nation that is allowing Iran to build a massive nuclear weapon and China to use the trillions and trillions of dollars that’s taken from the United States to build a military to rival our own, that over the past two years is no longer respected or listened to all around the world. And we are a nation that is hostile to liberty and freedom and faith. We are a nation whose economy is floundering, whose stores are not stocked, whose deliveries are not coming and whose education system is ranked at the bottom of every list.

We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke.

The adversity may seem insurmountable, “But soon we will have greatness again,” Trump continues, as color is restored in the video.

Trump's eerie ad ended with: 'We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke. But soon we will have greatness again'

“It was hard working Patriots like you who built this country and it is hardworking patriots like you who are willing to save our country,” Trump affirms. “There is no mountain we cannot climb. There is no summit we cannot reach. There is no challenge we cannot meet. There is no victory we cannot have.

“We will not bend. We will not break. We will not yield, ever, ever, ever. We will never give in, we will never give up. We will never, ever back down. We will never let you down as long as we are confident and united, the tyrants we are fighting do not stand even a little chance because we are Americans and Americans yield to God and God alone and it is time to start talking about greatness for our country again.”

WATCH:

Hours before the ad was published, Lara Trump argued the FBI’s raid of the former president’s home is an attempt to derail his 2024 bid for the presidency which “he’s going to announce any day.”

“This is about weaponizing the justice system, as it has been so many times in the past against somebody who you politically do not like,” she admonished in an appearance on the Fox News Channel. “They detest Donald Trump, not just on the Democrat side, but the general establishment, because he’s not one of them, because he doesn’t play their game. They are terrified. He’s going to announce any day that he’s running for president in 2024. And this is a very convenient way to just throw a little more mud on Donald Trump as though they haven’t already done enough.

“Think about this. If this is what they’re able to do to the former president of the United States, think about what they could do to you, to anybody in America. The bottom line here is that these documents that have been in question have been, everybody’s been cooperating,” she continued. “Everybody from my father-in-law’s team has been cooperating with the FBI with any authority that asks for anything up until now and there was no need to make such a big scene, to do something this insane, quite frankly, to a former president. But I think everybody clearly knows, Will, what is going on here. This is about weaponizing the justice system, as it has been so many times in the past against somebody who you politically do not like.”

WATCH:

Trump trounced potential 2024 contenders in CPAC’s presidential nomination straw poll presidential nomination straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference three-day gathering in Texas last week, capturing 69 percent of ballots cast in the anonymous survey.

“The support for the former president, who remains the most popular and influential politician in the Republican Party and continues to play a kingmaker’s role in GOP primaries, is up from his 59% showing in the anonymous online straw poll at the CPAC gathering in Orlando, Florida in February,” Fox News reports. “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in second on the 2024 presidential nomination question, at 24%, down from his 28% showing at CPAC in Orlando five months ago.”

New details leak about FBI’s shock raid on Mar-a-Lago — and GOP leader fires back at AG Garland: ‘Preserve your documents and clear your calendar’


By CHRIS ENLOE | August 09, 2022

The FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago was reportedly part of an investigation into former President Donald Trump removing classified documents from the White House and storing them in his south Florida resort. FBI agents began the raid early Monday morning around 9 a.m. and searched the property until 6:30 p.m., according to News Nation reporter Brian Entin, who cited his sources. The agents arrived in plain clothes — thus appearing to be Secret Service agents — and only notified the Secret Service about the raid right before it began. “That is why it didn’t leak earlier,” Entin explained.

Three of Trump’s lawyers arrived at Mar-a-Lago after the raid began, and the FBI agents did, as Trump claimed, open a safe in his office.

The purpose of the raid was to retrieve classified documents that Trump allegedly removed from the White House, the New York Times confirmed.

From the Times:

Mr. Trump delayed returning 15 boxes of material requested by officials with the National Archives for many months, only doing so when there became a threat of action to retrieve them. The case was referred to the Justice Department by the archives early this year.

Eric Trump confirmed about 30 FBI agents raided Mar-a-Lago, that nothing was found in Trump’s safe, and the purpose of the raid was to retrieve documents.

The raid does not confirm that Trump has committed a crime. It does, however, signal that investigators convinced a federal judge they had sufficient probable cause that a crime had been committed and that raiding Mar-a-Lago was necessary to retrieve evidence. Legal experts believe the raid must have been approved by the most senior levels of the Justice Department, perhaps even by Attorney General Merrick Garland, because Trump is a former president and raiding his residence would require approval at the highest levels of government.

The White House allegedly did not know about the raid beforehand.

But Republicans say the raid is more evidence the Justice Department has become politicized under President Joe Biden. After the raid, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy promised an investigation into the DOJ should Republicans retake control of the House after the 2022 midterm elections.

“I’ve seen enough,” McCarthy said in a statement. “The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned.”

“Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar,” he added.

‘Banana Republic’: DeSantis and other conservatives sound off after Trump says the FBI raided his Mar-A-Lago home

Republican politicians and conservative commentators sounded off on Monday after former President Donald Trump released a statement saying that the FBI had raided Mar-A-Lago.

“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared in a tweet.

“This is the act of a dictator of a Banana Republic. Republicans NEVER did this to Clinton, although perhaps we should have. With Joe & Hunter Biden paying zero consequence for his actions. This is shameful and MUST STOP. We don’t do this in America. Way over the line,” Glenn Beck tweeted.

“In third world countries and banana republics they prosecute the former presidents/leaders and their staff. Right now, we look beneath them. We are in a race to the bottom,” GOP Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky tweeted.

“Using government power to persecute political opponents is something we have seen many times from 3rd world Marxist dictatorships,” Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida tweeted. “But never before in America.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy declared that when Republicans regain the majority in the chamber, they will carry out “immediate oversight” of the Justice Department. “Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar,” McCarthy said in the statement.

Trump, who is widely expected to run for president again, issued a statement on Monday in which he said that, “my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.”

“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024 … and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the incoming Midterm Elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.”

Mark Levin unloads on Trump raid: ‘No justification for sending 30 freaking FBI agents’

BlazeTV host Mark Levin unloaded on the FBI Monday night, calling the raid on Donald Trump’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, “outrageous” and the “worst attack on this republic in modern history.”

Levin, a former chief of staff to U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, called in to “Hannity” on Fox News Monday to give his reaction to the then-breaking news that FBI agents executed a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. Federal agents were reportedly searching for evidence that Trump violated federal records-keeping law by allegedly taking classified documents from the White House with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left office.

“First of all, I’m a former chief of staff to a United States attorney general. We would never ever have done this. Ever,” Levin told Sean Hannity. “Number two, it’s 90 days before midterm election. That’s outrageous.”

“Number three,” he continued, “everybody pretty much knows that Donald Trump is going to run in the Republican primary for president of the United States. And so you have a sitting president who wants to run against him and his attorney general acting like this.”

Drawing on his experience with the Department of Justice, Levin said that the U.S. attorney in the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, had jurisdiction over the Trump presidential records case because the National Archives is located in D.C. Graves is also the U.S. attorney overseeing the Jan. 6 investigations.

Levin said Graves’ office likely coordinated with the U.S. attorney’s office in Florida and that FBI agents in South Florida would have been the ones who conducted the raid, “if they are playing it by the book.”

“[The U.S. attorney] wouldn’t have done anything without the sign-off of the attorney general of the United States. Period,” Levin emphasized. He also explained that the precision of the FBI raid suggests it had been planned for some period of time, possibly weeks.

For months, watchdog groups have accused former President Trump of violating the Presidential Records Act by improperly handling classified documents. The National Archives has said Trump tore up some documents he was supposed to preserve while in office and took other materials with him to Mar-a-Lago after leaving office.

Earlier this year, the National Archives and Records Administration recovered 15 boxes of presidential records from Trump’s residence in Florida, which allegedly included “classified national security information.” Trump said the records were given to the Archives upon request in accordance with federal law. But the agency referred the matter to the Justice Department.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has written a forthcoming book that accuses Trump of attempting to flush some records down the toilet, an act that would potentially be illegal.

Levin said the accusations in Haberman’s book and other reports of Trump’s alleged misconduct served as a “pretext” for the raid on Mar-a-Lago.

“There is no justification for sending 30 freaking FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-a-Lago in early morning and conducting themselves this way or in any other cases in which they’ve done exactly the same thing,” Levin said.

“The FBI is corrupt. This guy [Attorney General Merrick Garland] goes after parents. He goes after Republican state legislatures, he goes after states he disagrees with their abortion positions, he doesn’t do a damn thing to protect the border, which is compelled by the Constitution. Nothing.”

“This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period,” Levin continued. “And it’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on everybody who supports him, it’s an attack on anybody who dares to raise serious questions about Washington, D.C., and the establishment in both parties.”

THE GREAT ONE GOES OFF: ‘The Worst Attack on This Republic in Modern History, Period.’

Watch the clip above. Excerpts from the interview below.

LEVINEverybody pretty much knows that Donald Trump is going to run in the Republican primary for president of the United States. And so you have a sitting president who wants to run against him and his attorney general acting like this.

Now, here’s how this worked. Everybody’s guessing. I’ll tell you what happened. This is in the jurisdiction of the US attorney in District of Columbia, who’s also overseeing the January 6 prosecution. Why? Because that’s where the National Archives is, in the District of Columbia. They didn’t send FBI agents from the Washington office down there. They would have used FBI agents in South Florida and they would have coordinated with the U.S. attorney’s office down there if the plaintiff had a book.

This was well orchestrated, so this has been going on for weeks. Now, you keep asking your guests, what’s the justification? There is no justification. What’s he going to say tomorrow? The attorney general. Here’s my guest. We’ve been negotiating with Trump and his lawyers since February when we found out they had this information, we were getting nowhere. And then we know or we heard that some documents were being destroyed. Maggie Haberman, The New York Slimes was on CNN. They’ve been running pictures of hers that she’s going to have in the book of documents being flushed down a toilet. That doesn’t mean a damn thing. It could be anything. 

There is no justification for sending 30 friggin’ FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-a-Lago in early morning and conducting themselves this way or in any other cases in which they’ve done exactly the same thing.

The FBI is corrupt. This guy, Garland, goes after parents. He goes after Republican state legislatures. He goes after states because he disagrees with her abortion positions. He doesn’t do a damn thing to protect the border, which is compelled by the Constitution. Nothing.

Flashback: Trump Warns Gas Will Be $7+ if Biden Elected (VIDEO)

Trump was right… AGAIN.

Trump warned of $7+ gas if Biden were to get elected (installed) during a 2020 campaign rally. Not only did Trump warn about $7+ gas, he accurately predicted the Biden Regime would tell you to get rid of your car.

“If Biden got in, you’d be paying $7, $8, $9, then they’ll say ‘get rid of your car,” Trump said on the campaign trail in 2020.

VIDEO:

Gas prices hit an all-time high on Monday at $4.11 per gallon. As gas prices hit an all-time high on Monday, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was out telling Americans to get rid of their gas-powered cars and replace them with an EV!

Trump knew!

Ann Coulter Op-ed: The Message in the Polls: Trump’s Done

The Message in the Polls: Trump's Done

Source: AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin

Our media are obsessed with Donald Trump, but Trump’s obsessed with Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida. For months now, Trump’s been playing the aging silent film star Norma Desmond in “Sunset Boulevard” to DeSantis’ younger, prettier Betty Schaefer.

Amid the hourly, annoying group emails to Trump’s list — “YOU are one of my TOP supporters!” — there was one from Roger Stone on Nov. 2, 2021, denouncing DeSantis.

The insults sounded a lot like what Trump used to say about Stone: “Ron’s own piss-poor campaign …,” “without really delivering on his Trump-like rhetoric …,” “Governor DeSantis has failed …” and so on.

The title of this diatribe was: “WILL RON DESANTIS TAKE THE PLEDGE?” Can you guess what “the pledge” is? That is correct: not to challenge Trump for president in 2024.

Only because it was “from” Stone, a smart guy who sadly prostrated himself on the altar of Trump, did I open it. Then, I shook my head and deleted it.

Evidently, others on the Trump email list responded with more rancor.

One week later, Stone sent out a follow-up email frantically backpedaling, noting that “many” recipients of his recent email were “surprised” by his attacks on DeSantis. The crow-eating letter ended by pleading with Stone’s critics to “Please take a moment to read what I have actually said …”

That must’ve been some blowback!

No one wants Trump. He’s fading faster than Sarah Palin did — and she was second place on a losing presidential ticket. In case you don’t remember, for three years following that loss, Palin was packing stadiums with tens of thousands of Trump-like fans.

But by 2011, even she — a far smarter politician than Trump who did not spend her time whining about the last election, wallowing in self-pity or endorsing candidates because they once said something nice about her golf course — had faded. She was fun, but Republicans were starting to think seriously about the 2012 presidential election.

Trump is already two years ahead of Palin’s fade-out schedule. After his petulant endorsements this year deliver loss after loss in midterm elections that ought to be a blowout landslide for the GOP, he’ll be as popular as former Missouri Rep. Todd Akin.

As many Republicans will bitterly recall, Trump has already lost two Senate seats for Republicans in the 2021 Georgia runoffs. So far this year, he’s on track to lose — at least — another Senate race in Georgia, as well as the governor’s mansion.

Sure, thousands of people show up to his heavily advertised rallies, but they’re all the exact same people. His die-hard fans — or, as he calls them, “future Trump University students” — are like Deadheads, following him from venue to venue, dressing up in wild costumes and listening to the same songs.

Some conservatives who would never again vote for Trump wear MAGA hats, but that’s just an identity badge, like liberals wearing masks. Trump happens to be the last Republican president, and the media lose their minds over him. Wearing a “Trump” hat is the most efficient way to say, “Screw you, media.”

This is why the media’s neurotic fixation on Trump is baffling to normal people. TV hosts keep telling us that Trump is wildly popular — the 2024 nomination is his for the asking! — but facts on the ground suggest otherwise.

It turns out the media are using a sleight of hand to claim that Trump is popular with Republicans.

Nate Silver’s respected website fivethirtyeight recently announced: “Republicans remain loyal to Trump even after Jan. 6 attack,” citing a poll that shows Trump’s approval among Republicans at nearly 80%.

But there’s a lot more to the story. The poll allows readers to view Trump’s approval not only among all voters (-14%) but among specific subgroups of all voters: men, women, Blacks, Hispanics and whites, as well as any combination of these demographic subgroups. And get this: Trump doesn’t have as much as 25% net approval among any subgroup — other than “Republicans.”

Females have a negative 24% net favorable opinion of Trump. OK, fine, women don’t like him. Show me “men.” Men have a negative 3% net favorable opinion of Trump. That’s pretty much a full set. Who’s left?

I tried whites — the base of the Republican Party (and the demographic that decides every election, despite the unshakable beliefs of GOP donors). Whites have a meager 4% net favorable opinion of Trump.

We’re running out of demographics that might like Trump.

Maybe it was that massive Hispanic vote for Trump that I’ve been hearing so much about! Hispanics: negative 44% net favorable for Trump. Blacks? Negative 85% net favorable.

White men? Fourteen percent net favorable opinion of Trump. (That’s not even going to win you Alabama, Republicans.)

Non-college graduates? Negative 12% net favorable.

How about non-college-educated white men? The beating heart of the Trump base is only 23% net favorable toward Trump.

So how is it possible that 77% of “Republicans” — net — have a favorable opinion of Trump? There’s no other subgroup of the electorate that has even a third of that.

The only explanation is that an awful lot of Republicans are now calling themselves “Independents.”

Huh. Why might that be?

Maybe it’s because, day in, day out, the media tell us that the GOP is “the Party of Trump”! Apparently, this has led a lot of Republicans to conclude that they must not be Republicans, after all. (At least, among the Republicans contacted by these pollsters. I assume they didn’t have any respondents in Florida, where “Republican” has a much more favorable connotation.)

Thanks to the media’s lies, the only people calling themselves “Republicans” these days are the Trump die-hards. In other words, the blockbuster conclusion of this poll is: Trump die-hards like Trump!

Yes — and they’re the only ones who do. While Trump fanatics are indeed fanatical, everyone else is sick and tired of his nonsense.

Give voters a populist conservative who’s not a conman and a liar and they’ll be “Republicans” again. No wonder Trump hates DeSantis.

In 2020 GP Was First to Report “Only “6%” of COVID Deaths” Were Caused Strictly by COVID, President Trump Retweeted, Fake News Pounced — Now CDC Admits We Were Right

The world is finally waking up to what we reported a year and a half ago – there is a difference between someone dying “from” COVID and someone dying “with” COVID. The Gateway Pundit first reported this fact back in August 2020.  And oddly enough, we even grabbed this information from the CDC website.  It was all published there for all to see.

Our Gateway Pundit article received a huge amount of attention as word got out that only 6% of all deaths reported as COVID deaths were strictly due to COVID only.  The remaining 94% of the deaths reported as COVID deaths were deaths “with COVID” where those who died had multiple other co-morbidities as well.  On average, those who were labeled as dying from COVID had more than two other co-morbidities.

President Trump shared this fact as well as his son Don Jr and many others on Twitter.  “6%” was shared all over the Internet.  We at TGP were attacked and criticized and “fact-checked” for making the claim that only 6% of COVID deaths died from COVID only, even though the information came directly from the CDC’s site.

By late 2020 the number of fatalities that were counted as COVID deaths that died from only COVID was down to 5% per the CDC.

Yesterday the Head of the CDC was asked how many people died from COVID and how many with COVID of the reported 836,000 COVID deaths.  She didn’t answer.

Walensky also finally admitted that the vast majority of individuals who died with COVID had at least four comorbidities.

The fake news mainstream media is finally waking up to our reporting that a vast majority of all the COVID deaths were not caused by COVID alone.

We were right — And so was President Trump.

Ann Coulter Op-ed: Media Gone Wild (Over Trump!)

Media Gone Wild (Over Trump!)

Source: AP Photo/Ben Gray

If you really, really miss Donald Trump, MSNBC may just be for you! Biden is cratering, fuel prices are skyrocketing (hey, anybody seen Greta Thunberg?), hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are pouring across our border, and the murder rate keeps hitting historic highs. But the establishment media can’t stop talking about TRUMP.

So for my friends in the media, here are a few thoughts on your Trump obsession.

Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dr. Evil, has become an unlikely hero among the Can’t-Get-Enough-Trump media — because she can’t stop talking about Trump either.

Cheney says:

— Jan. 6 was dumb (true: As David Cole says, “What was supposed to happen?”);

— Trump is hurting the GOP (true: He endorsed Stacey Abrams and says his voters won’t come out in 2022 and ’24 if Republicans don’t make the “Presidential Election Fraud of 2020” their No. 1 issue); and

— Trump is lying about the Arizona recount (also true).

But then she had to add: Oh, and now I’m for gay marriage! Isn’t Bush the greatest?

Is there a political party for people who think Jan. 6 was dumb, notice that we don’t have a wall, and can read an election report, but still say Bush is a male bimbo and pretty much everything liberals said about him was true?

“Trumpism Without Trump” is the winning formula. We’re keeping the policies, but getting rid of the 8-year-old.

The main lesson out of the Arizona election hand recount a few weeks ago isn’t about the election at all. It’s that media misinformation is a serious problem in a democracy.

We got some very confusing messaging on the results of the recount. First, there were headlines all over saying it resulted in Biden winning again. I didn’t really care one way or another, except then Trump started going around claiming that the hand recount clearly showed … HE WON!

It’s a simple yes-or-no question: Did Trump win Arizona or didn’t he?

This turned out to be an epistemological puzzle. You see, both sides are gigantic liars, so whom to believe?

In this instance, the media were telling the truth, because the truth favored them, and Trump was lying, because it didn’t favor him.

But thanks, media, for so debasing yourselves with idiotic lies over the past five years — e.g., Russian collusion, the “Access Hollywood” tape, Trump’s remarks on Charlottesville — that I had to look up a basic fact question for myself because I simply couldn’t trust you.

Trump lost Arizona. The hand recount was conducted by a hardcore conservative Christian, Doug Logan, famed for his integrity, and who was, therefore, viciously attacked by liberals. The recount was ordered up by Trump Republicans in the Arizona legislature. It was paid for by Trump supporters.

If you don’t believe Logan, right-wingers, you won’t believe anyone, except the guy who promised to build a wall; bring manufacturing home; and end anchor babies, the carried interest loophole and the war in Afghanistan — but didn’t do any of those things.

Logan’s hand recount of the ballots resulted in Biden receiving 99 more votes and Trump receiving 261 fewer votes. The report is here in black and white.

When Trump says, We have conclusively proven that we won, he’s just doing the salesman thing he always does, telling you that a used car is a fantastic deal, an amazing car, runs like a top!

But the transmission just fell out.

I’m telling you, it’s a humdinger!

Yeah, and we have a big, beautiful wall. Thousands and thousands of miles.

File this under: At Least He Was Thinking of Us, Briefly.

The New York Times reported this week:

Trump’s Pentagon Chief Quashed Idea to Send 250,000 Troops to the Border

“Top national security aides to former President Trump also talked him out of launching military raids against drug cartels inside Mexico.”

Typical Trump. He talks a good game, then one person raises an objection and he says, OK, I’ll just tell my supporters I wanted to do it.

Of course, the Times’ take is: Isn’t he awful? Yes, New York Times, because he didn’t do it. Not because he said he would.

EPIC! Trump Attorney Jenna Ellis Challenges “Spineless” Liz Cheney to Debate over “The Big Lie” after Her Attack on President Trump

Earlier today President Trump released an explosive statement saying“The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” This prompted Republican Party House leader Liz Cheney to lash out at President Trump with her latest vicious attack on President Trump and his 74 million voters!

Liz Cheney is an absolute disgrace. The fact that she is still yielding power over Kevin McCarthy and House Republicans is a travesty. In response to Cheney’s latest attack Trump Attorney Jenna Ellis challenged Liz Cheney on a debate!

That would be epic!

Jenna Ellis tweeted:

Let’s see if Liz runs and hides behind her elitist donors or if she takes up Jenna on her challenge.

We can always hope!

Confirmed: FBI Hired Known Drug Addict Stefan Halper to Set Up and Bring Down the President of the United States and Anyone Connected to Him


Reported by By Joe Hoft | Published March 8, 2021 at 1:59pm

It’s now confirmed that the FBI used a known drug addict in an effort to set up and bring down the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and anyone connected to him. This is today’s FBI – set up innocent individuals with crimes while ignoring real obvious crimes like those involved in the 2020 election.

In late February documents were released surrounding one of the FBI’s spies hired to set up and discredit members of the Trump team in 2016.  The Conservative Treehouse noted:

The FBI documents outline how Stefan Halper was enlisted by the FBI for their operation to target the campaign of Donald Trump in 2016. Halper agreed to become a confidential human source (CHS) or spy for the FBI, and record contacts with several members of the Trump campaign in order to frame the Russian collusion narrative.
Despite secret recordings showing Carter Page clearly had no idea about any Russian connections to the campaign, or people within it; and despite Page clearly rebuking any effort to draw those inferences; the FBI still went forward with a Title-1 FISA surveillance warrant against Page and never informed the court of the exculpatory recordings.

The documents were released by John Solomon at Just the News:

The memos show that the FBI instructed Halper in August 2016 not to focus on Papadopoulos first, but rather on Page, whom the FBI described as an “opportune target.” Papadopoulos was given the code name Crossfire Typhoon (CT), while Page was given the codename Crossfire Dragon (CD) in the memos.
“The main goal of the operation is to have CD admit that he has direct knowledge of and is either helping coordinate or assisting the RF [Russian Federation] conduct an active measure campaign with the ‘Trump Team,’” stated an Aug. 24, 2016 report detailing the FBI’s interactions with Halper that week.
If the Page operation failed, the FBI “team would then change its posture and move forward with an operation against CROSSFIRE TYPHOON,” the memos stated. (read more)

It was all a setup – there was no crime but the FBI wanted to create one.

The problem with the FBI is that they used a drug addict to do their dirty work:

Our Justice Department is broken.

New poll reveals nearly half of Trump supporters would abandon GOP if Trump created own party


The Republican Party could be doomed in future elections if former President Donald Trump creates his own political party. Nearly half of Trump supporters — 46% — said they would abandon the GOP if Trump created his own political party, according to a new Suffolk University-USA Today poll released over the weekend.

In fact, only 27% of respondents said they would stay with the Republican Party, while the remaining percentage of respondents said they are undecided.

“We feel like Republicans don’t fight enough for us, and we all see Donald Trump fighting for us as hard as he can, every single day,” a Wisconsin business owner told USA Today. “But then you have establishment Republicans who just agree with establishment Democrats and everything, and they don’t ever push back.”

Meanwhile, half of the respondents said the Republican Party should be “more loyal to Trump,” and fewer than 20% said the GOP should jettison loyalty to the former president.

Another poll released earlier this month found that 64% of registered Republicans would abandon the GOP for a Trump-created third-party. Trump has reportedly explored the possibility of creating his own political party.

One day before President Joe Biden was inaugurated, the Wall Street Journal reported, “Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week. The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.”

However, Trump allies later rebutted the idea.

“The president wanted me to know, as well as a handful of others, that the president is a Republican, he is not starting a third party and that anything he would do politically in the future would be as a Republican,” Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) said in late January.

In fact, Trump reportedly plans to declare control of the Republican Party during his first post-presidential appearance, at the Conservative Political Action Conference next weekend, Axios reported.

From Axios:

In his first post-presidential appearance, Donald Trump plans to send the message next weekend that he is Republicans’ “presumptive 2024 nominee” with a vise grip on the party’s base, top Trump allies tell Axios.

A longtime adviser called Trump’s speech a “show of force,” and said the message will be: “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.” Payback is his chief obsession.

“Trump effectively is the Republican Party,” Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Axios. “The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grassroots.”

Ann Coulter Op-ed: My Nation-Unifying Impeachment Solution

My Nation-Unifying Impeachment Solution

Source: AP Photo/Alex Brandon

Senate Republicans should offer to convict Donald Trump in return for Democrats agreeing to fund the wall. Trump is not going to run again anyway. In four years, he will be as viable a presidential candidate as Hillary was in 2020. You wouldn’t have guessed that, either, from all the gnashing of teeth about the MOST QUALIFIED WOMAN EVER TO SEEK THE PRESIDENCY immediately after she lost. 

The reason elected Republicans, Fox News, OAN, Newsmax and a hundred talk radio hosts are terrified of supporting conviction is that they don’t want to look like Mitt Romney and incur the wrath of the Trump base (whatever remains of it).

Trading conviction for a wall solves that. It will remind Trump loyalists that he betrayed them on his central campaign promise, and also will actually fulfill that promise.

Democrats, if they have half a brain, will leap at the offer. They are about to destroy Biden’s presidency by defining themselves — as The New York Times’ Frank Bruni put it — as “antonyms to Trump.” Trump was for a wall. Ipso facto, Democrats are for open borders.

Trump was lying, liberals! Even President Obama was for border security. Great socialist hope Bernie Sanders has denounced open borders as a gift to the Koch brothers.

They don’t care. Trump supporters wanted a wall, so we’re going to punish them by throwing open the border!

If Biden continues with his tsunami of open border executive orders: 1) COVID-19 cases will multiply, as untested, unvaccinated third-worlders pour in at breakneck speed; 2) Black and Hispanic unemployment will go through the roof; and 3) crime — already reaching mind-blowing proportions — will become as potent a political issue as it has ever been.

Good luck in 2022, Democrats!

But if Democrats were to trade wall funding for the holy grail of a Trump conviction, they could save Biden’s presidency, humiliate Trump, and explain to their nut base, We know, we know — walls don’t work — but we had to trade it to convict Trump! Aren’t you happy?

It’s win-win-win all around.

Sitting on a nation-unifying idea like that, I never should have tuned into the impeachment trial. I knew the Democrats would somehow manage to turn me against conviction. I’m still not pro-Trump — that’s a tall order. But could Democrats please ease up on the hysterical weeping?

The president is not supposed to be organizing protests at all, much less against his own vice president. Isn’t that enough? You don’t need to juice up the story, Democrats.

Impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin:

“All around me, people were calling their wives and their husbands, their loved ones to say goodbye ….

“[My] kids, hiding under the desk, placing what they thought were their final texts and whispered phone calls to say their goodbyes. They thought they were going to die.”

Yes, being forced to listen to the Trump “shaman” gas on about organic food could have annihilated legions!

Trump is a selfish, ignorant child. But he is not responsible for the reactions of neurotic liberals.

It would be as if Raskin’s neighbor smashed into his parked car, then drove off. Raskin has a perfectly good case without having to wail, I WAS AFRAID HE WOULD COME TO MY HOUSE AND MURDER MY ENTIRE FAMILY!

Raskin’s most precious argument was this:

“Of all the terrible, brutal things I saw … watching someone use an American flagpole, the flag still on it, to spear and pummel one of our police officers ruthlessly, mercilessly, tortured by a pole with a flag on it that he was defending with his very life.”

First, give me a break, Democrats, pretending to give a crap about the American flag.

Second: “Tortured”?

Impeachment managers apparently used a thesaurus to write their speeches:

Siri, give me a synonym for “poke” or “strike.”

Siri: jab, punch, prod, thrust, wallop … TORTURE.

Really?

Yup, it’s right there in Roget’s!

Curiously, even the teary-eyed Raskin didn’t allege that Officer Brian Sicknick was killed by the protesters, a claim being made hourly on MSNBC.

Raskin: “People died that day. Officers ended up with head damage and brain damage. People’s eyes were gouged. One officer had a heart attack. One officer lost three fingers that day. Two officers have taken their own lives.”

Jeremy Bash, later that day on MSNBC: “They killed a cop, Nicole!”

If Officer Sicknick’s death truly resulted from injuries sustained at the hands of the mob, it would be the case in chief against the protesters. (We’re not counting heart attacks, much less suicides that occurred days, or weeks, later.) But no one in the media has been able to scare up a single eyewitness to the attack on Brian Sicknick?

Unlike defund-the-police liberals, I actually am heartbroken about the death of a Trump-supporting law enforcement officer.

But the media are lying about his death. First, they claimed he was hit on the head with a fire extinguisher. Then they said he was dragged into the crowd and beaten. All that is known for sure is that after Sicknick returned to headquarters, he collapsed and later died.

Last week, CNN nonchalantly inserted this into a story on Officer Sicknick: “Medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.”

There’s no hope for our media, who are irredeemable liars. But there’s still a chance for everyone else to come out a winner here! Trade conviction for a wall, Republicans.

Former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows Drops a BOMB on Power-Drunk Democrats – Trump Offered Assistance Multiple Times to DC Officials Before January 6th (VIDEO)


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published February 8, 2021

Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows joined Maria Bartiromo yesterday on Sunday Morning Futures. During their discussion, Mark Meadows dropped this BOMB on the power-drunk Democrats who are out for blood.

According to Mark Meadows President Trump offered Capitol Police, national guard and even offered the Department of Defense to help protect Washington DC prior to the January 6th protests.

Via The Palmieri Report:

Meadows told Bartiromo “we also know that in January, but also throughout the summer, that the president was very vocal in making sure that we had plenty of National Guard, plenty of additional support because he supports our rule of law and supports our law enforcement and offered additional help.”

“Even in January, that was a given, as many as 10,000 National Guard troops were told to be on the ready by the Secretary of Defense” Meadows added “That was a direct order from President Trump and yet here is what we see, all kinds of blame going around but yet not a whole lot of accountability.”

“That accountability needs to rest where it ultimately should be and that’s on capitol hill” he added.

Someone needs to shoot this off to that nasty liar Liz Cheney.

Chicago Mayor blames Trump for distanced learning despite the teachers’ unions refusing to return


Reported by Katie Daviscourt, Seattle, WA | February 2, 2021

Democrat Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot made an appearance on CNN’s New Day Tuesday and former President Donald Trump for the standoff between Chicago Public Schools and teachers unions on returning to the classroom. In an outlandish statement, Lori Lightfoot said the standoff between the public schools and teachers unions were “because of the incompetence of the previous administration.”

“These are really difficult times in a pandemic, exacerbated by the incompetence of the previous administration that didn’t leave us with enough vaccine to really quickly get to the entire population in our city that needs it. But we’re going to keep working hard recognizing the concern that, really, all of our residents have regarding COVID-19,” Lightfoot said.

Lightfoot continued, “I think it’s important for both sides to come to the table in good faith, recognize that we’re both trying to work through a very challenging situation, but we must get a deal done.”

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) have been trying to come up with a plan to return to in-person learning but have been blocked by the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU). The union is demanding that CPS and Mayor Lori Lightfoot “set clear and responsible public health criteria by which to honestly judge student and educator safety.” Among these demands are Personal Protection Equipment, smaller class sizes, support for traumatized students, COVID-19 testing, and upgraded ventilation.

CTU President Jesse Sharkey claimed that “CPS has stonewalled us for months as we’ve been trying to bargain enforceable safety standards for our district-run schools. We want our schools open as well, but we want it done safely, and not on the backs of the majority Black and Latinx students we serve.”

The most shocking demand of all is that the CTU wants the city to create better infrastructure for remote leaning instead of schools reopening. This is not surprising considering Sarah Chambers, an executive with the Chicago Teachers Union, went on a lavish vacation to the Caribbean while encouraging teachers to stay-home, claiming it was unsafe for them to go back to school amid the pandemic. While on her Caribbean vacation, Chambers threatened a strike if teachers returned to the classroom because ‘it’s unsafe.’

Striking is nothing new for Chicago Teachers Union. Chicago Public Schools hoped to reopen schools for in-person learning in January but CTU claimed that date is arbitrary,” threatening a strike if schools reopened that soon.

Lightfoot and CPS CEO Janice Jackson threatened to take away teachers tools and deny access to programs for remote learning if the teachers refused to return to the classroom. The pair has since issued a joint statement retracting those claims.

The union threatened to strike if they were denied access to programs they have been using to instruct students remotely.

Time will tell, but it seems as if CTU has no plans to send their teachers back to school anytime soon. Chicago Public Schools have been closed for in-person learning since March 17, 2020.

Trump Was Right! CNN Sees Viewership Shrink by 44% in First Post-Trump Week – MSNBC Down 20%


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published February 2, 2021

President Trump was right. In 2018 President Trump taunted the fake news media outlets. President Trump said when he is gone their ratings ‘will dry up and be gone.”

Trump tweeted this out:

The Fake News Media is going CRAZY! They are totally unhinged and in many ways, after witnessing first hand the damage they do to so many innocent and decent people, I enjoy watching. In 7 years, when I am no longer in office, their ratings will dry up and they will be gone!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2018

Twitter has since eliminated President Trump’s account and banned several prominent Trump-supporters. 

And since Biden was inaugurated CNN’s viewership is down 44% in one week.

Variety reported via HotAir:

While January 2021 will go down in the ratings record books for CNN, the last week of the month may offer a portent of what the post-Trump era will be like for the network.

In the first week of the Biden administration, the AT&T-owned news channel saw the audiences that had been flooding into primetime recently drop precipitously on Jan. 25-29 compared with the highs of previous weeks. Meanwhile, rival Fox News Channel saw its own ratings only dip slightly after weeks of registering its own sharp declines.

Another network that has been characterized as left-leaning, MSNBC, has also seen significant declines but nowhere near as steep as what has hit CNN: Variety Intelligence Platform’s analysis of the viewership data across two key metrics—the target news demographic for people ages 25-54, and the total audience watching—shows that CNN ended the final week of January with ratings dropping roughly 44% for total audience versus the prior week across all three hours of primetime.

While it’s too early to conclude any longer-term direction for news ratings after just one week, the downturn could be interpreted as an indicator of what many industry observers had anticipated: With Biden in the White House, networks that have spent the last four years railing consistently against Trump have lost the main attraction that energized their audience bases, making it difficult to hold onto the elevated viewing levels.

Lou Dobbs Warns GOP: “Those 74 Million Americans if They Continue to Be Insulted – Are Going to Say “To Hell With You!” And the Patriot Party Will Be Born (VIDEO)


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published January 21, 2021

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) joined Lou Dobbs on Thursday night to discuss the radical moves by Joe Biden and the persecution of the middle class.

During their discussion, Lou turned his focus to the leadership of the Republican Party. The popular pro-Trump host blasted the GOP leadership for spitting on the Trump voters who delivered a landslide 74 million votes to the Republican Party this year and saved the House and Senate races.

Lou Dobbs warned the Republican Party that they are about to lose their base!
He’s right!

Lou Dobbs: The fact of the matter is, working men and women and their families right now have no representation. This president has made clear who has his priority, his attention, his interest. President Trump, as you say, stood up for the working – men and women and their families. And, it’s stunning to me that the Republican party right now doesn’t understand the threat that he poses. Because, I think of those 74 million Americans, if they continue to be insulted by the leadership of both political parties they are going to say, “The hell with you.” And the Patriot Party will be born and it will be born with extraordinary strength and power.

UPDATE on the National Guard Troops In Washington


DeSantis Orders FL Troops In D.C. Back Home: ‘They’re Not Nancy Pelosi’s Servants’

“This is a half-cocked mission and they are not Nancy Pelosi’s servants.”

Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, speaks during a news conference with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, not pictured, in West Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020. / Saul Martinez/Bloomberg via Getty Images

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday morning announced that he has ordered back home Florida National Guard troops sent to Washington, D.C., to secure the inauguration of President Joe Biden, which took place on Wednesday. DeSantis called the “mission” in D.C. “half-cocked” and blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for treating troops like her “servants.”

“[Governor Ron DeSantis] says he ordered the National Guard to come home from the U.S. Capitol because ‘they’re not Nancy Pelosi’s servants’ and ‘this is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home,’” reported Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau Chief Mary Ellen Klas.

A stunning 25,000 troops from across the nation were ordered to D.C. to secure the inauguration of Biden. As noted by The Daily Wire, disturbing photographs circulated Thursday evening revealed our National Guard troops sleeping in cold parking garages.

“Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and have been photographed having to sleep in parking garages while temperatures in the nation’s capital were set to dip down to near-freezing temperatures,” The Daily Wire reported. “The photos of the living conditions that the National Guardsmen were forced to endure come after Democrats took complete control of the federal government this week following Joe Biden being sworn in as the nation’s 46th president.”

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott (TX) reacted quickly to the report, too, ordering on Thursday night that members of the Texas National Guard return from D.C. back to Texas, The Daily Wire reported.

“I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state,” Abbott said on Twitter.

Earlier in the week, the Abbott ripped into the so-called “loyalty” screening of the tens of thousands of National Guards troops sent to D.C. for the inauguration. Linking to a piece from The Washington Post concerning the excess screening of 25,000 National Guard troops, Abbott posted: This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard. No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard.”

Notably, service members are already screened for ties to extremism or other potential flags. Thus, the latest screenings seem to be excessive and perhaps linked to suspicion directed at supporters of President Donald Trump after the Capitol riot. The Associated Press in a Monday report on the screening, for example, named supporters of the president as potential threats to a Biden inauguration.

“No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard,” the governor said via Twitter on Monday. “I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC. I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.” 

 

Texas Governor orders National Guard unit stationed in DC for Biden inauguration back home after troops forced to sleep in parking garages

Following the abhorrent treatment of National Guardsmen, who were forced to sleep in congressional parking garages in Washington DC after the inauguration of Joe Biden, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted that he had ordered Texas Guard members back home.

“I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state.”

This follows bi-partisan outcry at pictures of Guardsmen sleeping on the concrete floors of the garages in freezing temperatures. A Guardsman told Politico “Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

Guard units had been told to leave Capitol grounds facilities where they had been staying for the two weeks leading up to the inauguration. There was reportedly only one electrical outlet and one bathroom for 5,000 troops and no internet reception.

Over 25,000 Guardsmen from around the country were ordered to Washington DC following the Jan 6 riot at the US Capitol, in order to provide additional security for the inauguration. The guard has been on station for two weeks and were seen in pictures last week before the inauguration sleeping on the floors of the Capitol before cots were brought in.

Following public outcry and pushback from many lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, Guardsmen were welcomed back to the Capitol buildings on Thursday night.

President Trump Gives Permission for US Troops to Stay at Trump Hotel in Washington DC

More than 20,000 troops protected Joe Biden’s sham inauguration on Wednesday. Virtually no one showed up to see senile Joe slur his way through his swearing-in ceremony. The military felt completely abandoned by the DC elites.

This morning OANN reported that President Trump gave permission for the troops to stay at his lavish Trump Hotel in Washington DC. Trump loves the troops. It’s just too bad Democrats stole his military vote.

BREAKING: President Trump Formally Declassifies Large Trove of Russiagate Documents Over Objections From FBI Director Wray


Reported By Cristina Laila | Published January 19, 2021

President Trump formally declassified a large trove of Russiagate documents Tuesday evening over objections from the FBI. The declassified documents are expected to be released by Wednesday.

President Trump said he received the materials in a binder on December 30 and decided to declassify and publicly release the documents.

“I determined that the materials in that binder should be declassified to the maximum extent possible,” the president said.

According to investigative reporter John Solomon, the binder is about a foot tall. The FBI objected to a complete release of the documents and Trump agreed to light redactions.

“As part of the iterative process of the declassification review, under a cover letter dated January 17, 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation noted its continuing objection to any further declassification of the materials in the binder and also, on the basis of a review that included Intelligence Community equities, identified the passages that it believed it was most crucial to keep from public disclosure. I have determined to accept the redactions proposed for continued classification by the FBI in that January 17 submission,” Trump said in a memo.

“I hereby declassify the remaining materials in the binder. This is my final determination under the declassification review and I have directed the Attorney General to implement the redactions proposed in the FBI’s January 17 submission and return to the White House an appropriately redacted copy.”

John Solomon reported on Just The News that the documents will include an FBI memo outlining interviews agents did with dossier author Christopher Steele.

Just the News has already reported the materials include an FBI memo summarizing an interview agents did in fall 2017 with anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, in which he acknowledged his motives for leaking the Russia collusion narrative during the 2016 U.S. election as well as tasking orders for another confidential human source to spy on the Trump campaign by posing as someone seeking a job.

Donald Trump looking to form his own political party — the ‘Patriot Party’: Report


Donald Trump has reportedly spoken to confidants and aides over the last several days about possibly forming his own political party, according to a Tuesday night report from the Wall Street Journal.

The outlet reports that the move comes on the heels of Trump feeling that Republicans abandoned him following the early January attack on the U.S. Capitol as well as the GOP members who voted in favor of a historic second impeachment.

The outlet, citing inside sources reportedly familiar with the matter, said that the president would like to call the party the “Patriot Party.”

“Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week,” the outlet reported. “The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.”

The Daily Wire reported that “top pro-Trump Republicans” close to the administration said that it was a “bad idea” and would effectively split the Republican Party so that it would be nearly impossible for Republicans or otherwise to defeat the Democratic Party in elections.

In a Tuesday farewell video, Trump said that his movement is “only just beginning.”

“As I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning,” he said. “There’s never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle but instead only grow stronger by the day. As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country, then there is nothing this nation cannot achieve.”

In his final speech as president, Trump at Joint Base Andrews said, “We will be back in some form.”

The Election Is Over. Here’s the Truth About Trump.

Source: AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin

Now that the Georgia runoffs are over, let’s talk about Donald Trump.

When we really needed all hands on deck in Georgia, Trump was a wrecking ball. He went down to Georgia and insulted everyone, refusing to talk about anything but himself. Based on his rally speech this week, Trump apparently thinks he won the November election because there was a red wave for everyone except him. How else could all those Republicans win congressional seats on his “coattails,” while he lost?

There are other ways to interpret the election results, such as that Trump didn’t have any “coattails.” In Texas, for example, Trump won, but Sen. John Cornyn got more votes — the first time a Texas senator has bested a Republican president in a couple of decades.

Maybe Americans are terrified of the Democrats, but also sick of Trump.

From the moment the election was over, Democrats were single-mindedly focused on winning the Georgia runoffs. By contrast, Republicans indulged in their usual circular firing squads, while Trump kept the base distracted with his petulance about the November election. (Yes, the Democrats cheated. They always cheat. Maybe somebody should have done something about it before the election.)

With Republicans facing these two crucial runoffs, Trump was too narcissistic to care about anything but his personal issues, and he busily set landmine after landmine for the candidates.

After Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue had triumphantly voted for the coronavirus relief bill, Trump began attacking it as a “disgrace” and ridiculing the paltry $600 individual payments.

Let’s see, who had negotiated this “disgrace” again? Trump’s own Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin. But Trump was too busy denouncing the November election to pay attention to the negotiations.

For a week, Trump pretended he wasn’t going to sign the bill. In the end, he signed it, but waited so long to do so that instead of Georgia voters receiving their checks days before the runoff, they’ll be getting their checks sometime later this week.

Fantastic.

Then Trump launched vicious attacks on the (admittedly ridiculous) Georgia governor and secretary of state, blaming them for his loss in the state. Republicans needed every vote in this election, and surely there are some Georgians who prefer those guys to Trump. But Trump forced Loeffler and Perdue to choose between him and their own elected Republican leaders.

It also didn’t help that we’re in the middle of another COVID surge. You can’t blame Trump for the coronavirus, a gift from China to the entire world. Trump did better than most world leaders, especially with Operation Warp Speed.

The usual problem with Trump is that he’s all talk, no action. He talked about the massive fraud that would ensue with mail-in ballots … but did nothing. He talked about “LAW & ORDER” as cities burned to the ground … but did nothing. He talked about the wall … but built only about dozen miles of it.

With COVID, it was the reverse. Trump did the right things, but wouldn’t shut up. Worst of all, he talked to Bob Woodward.

To Woodward: I could curl your toes with some of the stories about this virus! See, I get these briefings every morning …

An hour later to the public: It’s gonna be great. This will be over by Easter.

That’s not a strong leader rallying the country. It’s a con artist telling you to put all your money on a stock that’s about to tank. Worst of all, it shows you who he is that Trump so desperately wanted Woodward to like him and was stupid enough to think he could win him over.

For all that, Trump had it all! He won the presidency by running on wildly popular issues that no other candidate would touch. He had devoted followers. For the first two years of his presidency, he had a Republican House and Senate.

     Oh grief that Earth’s best hopes rest all with Thee!

Trump could have been a massively popular president and won reelection comfortably, if only he’d kept faith with his voters. Even people who abhorred him would have had to say, I thought he was a coarse vulgarian, but he was right about China ripping us off, he was right about the border, and he was right about standing up to crazy woke culture.

The 2020 election should have been like Ronald Reagan’s 1984 reelection (49-state landslide). Like Trump, Reagan ran on popular issues left on the ground by other candidates — primarily his vow to destroy the Soviet Union and reignite the economy by slashing government.

But — and here’s the big difference — Reagan kept his promises.

Not Trump! Instead — in the greatest bait-and-switch in American history — he promptly turned his presidency over to nimrods Jared and Ivanka, while he watched TV and tweeted. Suddenly, the populist hero was replaced with two idiots, who were all about being friends with the Kardashians and sucking up to Goldman Sachs.

Why don’t we have a wall? Why didn’t Trump impose a tax on remittances to make Mexico pay for it? Why are American workers still training their cheap labor replacements?

Answer: Stephen Miller, Trump’s crucial immigration aide during the 2016 campaign, survived his first year in the White House only by convincing Ivanka he was working on “Women’s Issues.” He spent his remaining three years with his nose up Jared’s butt.

We knew about the hucksterism. There was no warning about the kids.

The Republican Party’s only hope is to become a populist party, but without a shallow, narcissistic ignoramus as its head.

What is the point of being slavishly loyal to a person who is loyal to no one (except his numbskull kids)? Trump has sold out everyone who was ever faithful to him — Jeff Sessions, Kris Kobach, Chris Christie, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, the Proud Boys, Corey Lewandowski, Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, and, of course, his own voters.

Half of the betrayed are still desperately seeking Trump’s favor by signing onto the futile “Stop the Steal” effort. Not good enough for the administration! But good enough to humiliate themselves in Trump’s final days in office. At the first Stop the Steal rally in Washington, Trump didn’t even show up. He went golfing.

Give up the cult of personality, Trumpsters, or at least find someone with a better personality.

History Repeats Itself: Democrats Are Using Tactics of the Marxists of 1917 in Russia to Steal 2020 Election


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published December 22, 2020 at 7:19am

Once again we are republishing this analysis by John L Kachelman, Jr. We first published this piece back in October before the election.

2020 the “Perfect Storm” facing our Republic— All three branches of our Government are in peril

Historical Discovery…An election in 1917 forecast the election in 2020! Here are the elements from 103 years ago!

  • Years of preparatory work were spent in misleading and mis-directional propaganda

  • Contested voting results marred the election’s finality and ultimately its dismissal

  • Claims that the poor were going to be disenfranchised of their votes

  • The scheduled voting was extended by two months

  • Division, violence, slander and libel were widespread

  • A delusional/cunning/conniving campaign made unrealistic promises to win the population

  • Anger and mob violence were deliberately stirred against “privilege,” possessions, and status

  • Deceptive claims persuaded the “majority” they were robbed of their electoral victory

  • Inevitable civil war was sparked at the election’s end because Lenin’s group failed to win the majority

  • The dissolution of the old State and a “transformation” of the new system was promised to lead to true socialism but it brought history’s worst and longest ruling tyrant

And here is how it happened…

Here is a basic reminder of your 9th Grade American Civics materials…The Founding Fathers of our Republic designed a system of governing to prevent the evils inherent in the onerous governing systems of Europe. The Republic was to be governed in a way that the majority would have a say BUT safeguarded against a rogue majority controlling the nation. A deliberate system of “checks and balances” was wisely incorporated against evil efforts to seize national control.

The ultimate safeguard was the separation of the State’s governing into three distinct bodies. While each would have an impact upon the others, that impact was deliberately limited. The Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the Republic were designed to be independent but function with unity to guide the nation, preserve freedoms, and guard the human rights that are often disenfranchised by evil systems and philosophies. One of the greatest feats of our Republic is the exercise of individualism when these three branches of governing are properly functioning.

However, at this point in our nation’s historical narrative the “perfect storm” threatens ALL THREE of these safeguards of our Republic. And my disconcerting observation is that many prance and dance around with a Pollyannish attitude denying the reality of our current situation. The prevailing cultural concern is as absurd as the attitude of one busily rearranging the deck chairs on the sinking Titanic!

The assault on the EXECUTIVE BRANCH

The resistance has been hard at work even prior to President Trump’s inauguration. Attempts to nullify the electoral process have been constant. The evil agenda was visible. Our President has suffered evil resistance of historic proportions. The basic cause is his commitment to the U.S. Constitution. It is the unchanging Constitution that provides the legal governing making the USA an exceptional nation of individuals. This fixed and knowable Constitution gives our nation the strength and energy envied by the world and loathed by tyranny. )The Resistance/DEMS/BLM/ANTIFA demand an activist Court that will change our Republic’s basic foundational principles.)

The stated position of the resistance has been loud and long—they have robbed President Trump of his first four years as President. They have dared to present the most ridiculous reasons for his disqualification and removal. They have manipulated, deceived and extorted support for their evil agenda. They have ignited violence that has divided and destroyed the civility of the USA. Their evil purpose was to achieve the political purge of a duly elected President of the United States of America. Our President has been nominated for multiple Nobel Peace Prizes for his exceptional ability to broker true peace between Middle Eastern nations. But the resistance shrugs forgetting they excitedly embraced the Peace Prize awarded to Obama which is admitted now as an award for nothing! The resistance’s political maneuvering and evil mission is well documented.

Those of the resistance are described by inspiration. Their conniving and cunning evil is a constant action seeking to destroy legitimate order. Psalm 36:4, “He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.” (See also Ecclesiastes 10:20)

Even the classics describe the reality of this evil. From Stevenson’s pen we remember the confession that describes those seeking to nullify the legality of President Trump’s election. Like the pained soul of Henry Jekyll the resistance can confess, “I lost my identity beyond redemption…had I risked the experiment while under the empire of generous or pious aspirations, all must have been otherwise, and from these agonies of death and birth, I had come forth an angel instead of a fiend…At that time my virtue slumbered; my evil, kept awake by ambition, was alert and swift to seize the occasion.” Perhaps the most troubling reference that Stevenson’s pen gives to the resistance character states, “O my poor old Harry Jekyll, if ever I read Satan’s signature upon a face, it is on that of your new friend.”

Inspiration and the Classics unite in describing today’s controlling evil that occupies every thought of the Progressive/Liberal/BLM/ANTIFA “resistance” as “Satan’s signature upon a face.”

This is the first element of today’s “Perfect Storm.” There are two more elements…

The assault upon the LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

It is the Legislative Branch of our Republic’s government that involves the citizenry in the governing process. The population’s vote is a significant and treasured freedom. That vote expresses the desires of each State of the Union and is recorded by the Electoral College so that a free election is not controlled by a militant mob. The Founding Fathers wisely saw the potential of a militant group manipulating and coercing control. The establishment of the Electoral College was a masterful move safeguarding the Republic’s freedoms. By this method the most populous States are equal with the least populous—true equality.

The 2020 General Election is recognized as a critical point in our nation’s history. It can be said that every election is critical and previous elections have suffered the militancy of Progressives/Liberals attempting to undermine the Constitutional foundation of our nation. These past challenges failed because the general population was aware of the evil being campaigned and were educated regarding the safeguards of our Constitution. But the context has dramatically changed for the 2020 General Election. In this current election the Constitutional safeguards are condemned and the population is ignorant of just how fragile individual freedom is. It appears that many have been groomed and are eager to believe the Progressive/Liberal/Democratic lies and embrace anarchy. This is not a new situation. History is amazing as it details how the past continues to explain the present.

Consider the Russian Revolution. I offer just a scant discussion on Lenin’s role in this aspect of Russian politics. Hopefully I will have opportunity to offer a more complete discussion. Consider the first “free election” that Russia experienced. It was held in October or November 1917 (the month depends upon which calendar you consult). Lenin promised a “free” election where all votes would be equal and each citizen would be heard. The election was scheduled and a number of political parties provided the voters a choice. Among the many parties were two dominating parties: the Socialist-Revolutionaries and the Russian Social-Democratic Labor Party (Lenin’s Bolsheviks).

The propaganda fueling this election is intriguing. Lenin had confidence that his party would be an overwhelming victor. He was convinced that his pamphleteering during his exile was persuasive. He was convinced that only he knew best what the poor citizens needed for happiness in life. Lenin had devised a governing system by which the State would help the poor citizen to have free health care, free food, personal land ownership, and the erasure of all class “privileges” by redistributing wealth/financial resources/personal property. Under Lenin’s control there would be no more denial of personal rights, no more prejudice of persons, and no more unjust financial levels. All would be totally “equal” IF Lenin’s perfect Revolutionary State was allowed to transform into the Marxist utopia.

Here is where history becomes instructive regarding the Legislative Body of the State.

When the Tsar abdicated, the Russian Provisional Government was formed. Its purpose was to organize the free elections for the Russian Constituent Assembly. The provisional government lasted only eight months and was replaced by the Bolsheviks. A significant footnote to this period is that the Provisional Government was unable to make decisive policy decisions due to political factionalism and a breakdown of state structures. The anarchy fomented by Lenin and the Bolsheviks rendered a civil governing impossible. Whatever legislative bills were presented were instantly killed by opposition. Revolutionary unrest fueled violence. This was a deliberate design of non-cooperation and pure resistance! The deliberate campaign for divisiveness and refusal to perform governing duties is a sobering similarity to the resistance in modern day American politics. Lenin’s free election was conducted but here are some troubling facts from its history:

1) The election was designed to be held on specific dates BUT some argued that the peasants in the outlying territory needed more time to get their votes counted. So, the ballot counting was extended in some places by TWO MONTHS!

2) Throughout the 1917 campaign Lenin argued that the citizens deserved a government that represented “the proletariat’s interests” because, in his estimation, all other governments represented the “dictatorship of the bourgeoisie.” Lenin argued that the rich would never give up their “privileges” and so the soviets would need to seize power by violence. Lenin’s propaganda fueled the division that would destroy the Russian nation. He urged violence nurtured by envy and jealousy arguing that some had “privileged status” that others did not and this great “inequity” could only be removed with a violent overthrow.

3) Even though the first free election included a number of different political parties, Lenin was confident that his Bolsheviks would win. That did not happen. The final tabulation exposed Lenin as suffering defeat and his Bolsheviks only garnered 23.26% of the vote. The Socialist-Revolutionaries emerged  with 37.61% of the vote. Lenin was unhappy and contested the results! Lenin refused to concede protesting the legitimacy of the election.

4) The objective of the resistance was a one-party government and an absolute silencing of opposition. “It is the duty of the revolution to put an end to compromise, and to put an end to compromise means taking the path of socialist revolution” Lenin, Speech On The Agrarian Question November 14 (1917).

Carefully consider how Lenin embraced the freedom of voting while masterfully disguising his evil objective of silencing the opposition and developing a one-party ruling government.

After the election results were announced, Lenin stood and revealed the coup. The results were called flawed. Those in opposition were eventually murdered. Lenin instituted his famous “dictatorship of the proletariat.” Lenin said this was the best course for the average citizen and this dictatorship would dissolve when all privileged distinctions were erased, all wealth inequities removed, and all land ownership seized. And the Russian population permitted this dictatorship to exist!

When applied to the 2020 General Election in the USA, this historical anecdote should sound national alarms! The very concepts that Lenin used to nullify the free election of Russia in 1917 are being used in today’s election. In fact, some of the very words and phrases that were used by Lenin are parroted by the Democratic Progressives today and characterize the membership of Democratic Party in the USA!

When the election process of our governing Constitution is compromised and dismissed as archaic and inapplicable THEN our nation has lost the compass for safely navigating the treacherous existence in this world.

The assault upon the JUDICIAL BRANCH

History reminds its students that the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justices were forever changed in 1987 with Joe Biden’s Judiciary’s malevolent confirmation hearing of Judge Robert Bork. Biden was campaigning to be the nomination of the Democratic Presidential candidate (which he would lose to Dukakis because of Biden’s plagiarism). In 1987 the custom was for such hearings to last two days or less. Under Biden’s chairmanship Bork’s hearing was weaponized and lasted TWELVE days. Such a reprehensible action has earned its own idiom in American language—“so and so was ‘Borked’.”

The 1987 Democratic Party’s politicizing and weaponizing the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court appointments opened the floodgates for the most contentious events in the governing of the United States of America. One only needs to go back to the recent hearings to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. The personal slander, insidious innuendos, manufactured complaints and a host of other evil actions have become accepted political weapons (Or as Speaker Pelosi remarked, “arrows in our quiver”). In past times it was customary that the sitting President was respected and his nominations were accorded with approval, even if the conservatives knew they were approving a Progressive/Liberal who despised the literalist view of the U.S. Constitution they voted for the confirmation. But now there is a horrid specter of divisiveness and vindictiveness enveloping the process.

The General Election of 2020 spotlights the tragic devolving of the status of the U.S. Supreme Court. It is suggested by some, with validity, that the Supreme Court is no longer focused upon apolitical justice but has assumed an active role in establishing law that the U.S. Constitution reserves only for the Legislative Branch.

The Democrats/Progressives/Liberals have announced their intent to “pack” the Supreme Court with Justices who disrespect the U.S. Constitution. They want a left-leaning Court that will sanction the total dismemberment of the constitutional statutes that made America a great nation. The far-left Daily Kos cautioned Republicans that a “future government controlled by Democrats is likely to pursue — court-packing —  as the best way to rebuff a conservative Court majority viewed as illegitimate.” Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told voters during an October 2018 campaign event that Democrats should “pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America” after taking the House, Senate, and Presidency. Leading Democrats also warned that if the justices issue a pro-Second Amendment ruling, and if Democrats win the White House and the Senate in 2020, then they will fundamentally remake the High Court.

Former President Franklin Roosevelt issued this same threat in the 1930s after facing legal obstacles with his New Deal and subsequently “threatened to expand the Court by six seats for a new total of 15 justices so that he could get the rulings he wanted.” The American people, however, rejected his threat, leading to massive Republican victories in the 1938 midterm elections.

Former Democrat presidential candidates Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and now vice-presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced that they were open to reshaping the court. “We are on the verge of a crisis of confidence in the Supreme Court,” Harris said, according to Politico. “We have to take this challenge head on, and everything is on the table to do that.”

During the summer of 2020 several major progressive groups, including Take Back The Court, Demand Justice, Progressive Change Institute, and the Sunrise Movement, signed a letter declaring their support for increasing the number of justices by “at least” two seats. The resistance wrote in part: “The fastest, most effective way to make the court representative of all Americans is to enact legislation increasing the size of the Court by at least two seats, and to quickly fill those seats with justices who will safeguard our democracy.” Note: In the context of this reference it is best to remember Lenin’s manipulative ploy that his “free” election would best represent “all Russians”?

In March 2019, President Trump astutely dismissed mounting calls from his Democratic opponents to pack the Supreme Court. “The only reason they’re doing that is they want to try and catch up, so if they can’t catch up through the ballot box by winning an election, they want to try doing it in a different way,” he added.

The late Justice Ginsburg balked at the proposition of packing the Supreme Court. “It would make the Court look partisan,” the late justice told National Public Radio’s Nina Totenberg last year.

The Judicial Branch of the government is to interpret laws respecting the United States Constitution’s limits. Once this unbiased governing is compromised, there is no lawful regulations for civility in our nation.

Concluding Thoughts…

This is where the United States of America is positioned as the General Election of November 2020 nears. A discord and division prevail that has never existed. This violence has been stoked with bitterness. The Progressives/Democratic Party/BLM/ANTIFA assure us that regardless of the election there will be violence. We are being conditioned to think that electoral results will take weeks or months to be validated and even then, they will be challenged. The vitriol marking the battleground is undeniable. Following Lenin’s example in 1917 the Democrats have been told never to concede. The results are already announced, “Furious Democrats are considering total war — profound changes to two branches of government, and even adding stars to the flag (i.e. adding the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico as States thus insuring Democrats have two solid additions to their column)  — if Republicans jam through a Supreme Court nominee then lose control of the Senate.”

As the National Election of 2020 approaches we read of violence, destruction and carnage in the public sphere…Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent death sparked a political firestorm, as Republicans prepare for a contentious, pre-election confirmation showdown and some Democrats threaten to, quite literally, burn the country down.

The ”Perfect Storm” facing the Republic of the United States of America has formed and threatens the three pillars of our civility.

After Lenin’s Bolsheviks permitted a “free election” they moved quickly to strangle freedoms. Lenin’s opinion of the poor proletariat having the right to vote for individual choices morphed into a ruling class identified as the “Politburo.” The first Politburo consisted of: LeninTrotskyKrestinskyKamenev, and Stalin. Lenin died. Trotsky was exiled to Mexico and was murdered. Krestinsky and Kamenev were assassinated. That left Stalin. Stalin manipulated the bureaucratic apparatus and seized power. By the 1930s, Stalin had transformed the Politburo into the supreme executive and legislative body of the Communist party and the Soviet government. Stalin was in command of its membership, decisions, and debates. The party congress now not only did not elect the politburo, but its own membership was fully controlled by the politburo. Not only had Lenin’s vision of a one-party political government been achieved but now it became a one-man political government! Individualism had been erased. The individual had ceased to exist and all had become “the State.”

The ”Perfect Storm” in Russia’s history resulted in the totalitarian reign of Stalin’s terror. Such is the conclusion of Russia’s first free election.

What will YOU do regarding the “Perfect Storm” in which our Republic is now struggling?

Please read the historical documentation available and you will realize
this is not a conspiracy theory but a historical constant!

President Trump says he’ll ‘certainly’ leave office if he loses Electoral College vote, but vows legal fight is ‘far from over’


President Donald Trump said Thursday that he will “certainly” leave office if the Electoral College votes to elect Democratic nominee Joe Biden, but vowed there will be “a lot of things happening between now and Jan. 20.” When asked by a reporter during a lengthy teleconference with military troops on Thanksgiving if he would vacate the presidency should he lose the Electoral College vote, the president said, “Certainly I will, and you know that.”

But the president earlier admitted that “it’s going to be a very hard thing to concede” because of the “massive fraud” he alleges took place during the 2020 election.

“As to whether or not we can get this apparatus moving quickly — because time isn’t on our side, everything else is on our side, facts are on our side, this was a massive fraud,” Trump stated.

“This was a rigged election,” he said, adding elsewhere, “This race is far from over.”

The Electoral College is scheduled to meet on Dec. 14. The states must first certify their results, and any challenge to the results must be resolved by Dec. 8.

The teleconference was the first time that the president has answered questions from reporters since the Nov. 3 election.

Several mainstream media outlets have called the race for Biden and officials in battleground states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia have taken steps toward certifying election results. But undeterred, the Trump campaign is pushing forward with legal challenges in many states hoping to demonstrate that widespread election fraud took place.

On Wednesday, the president’s legal team participated in a public hearing about election “irregularities” in Pennsylvania. Similar public hearings are scheduled to take place in Arizona on Monday and Michigan on Tuesday. Trump’s refusal to accept the reported election results has caused a stir among Democrats who say they feared that such an event like this would happen — that Trump would hold up in the Oval Office and need to be physically removed.

In October, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced legislation to create a commission that could recommend removing a president from office. In a statement earlier this month, Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates threatened, “the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”

Pittsburgh Area Antifa Leader Tweets Warning To Trump: “We are armed…If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas”


Reported By Patty McMurray | Published November 24, 2020 at 10:54am

During the September 29 debate, Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden responded to President Trump’s remarks about Antifa being a violent organization by telling him that Antifa is simply “an idea” and “not an organization.”

100 Percent Fed Up – Conservative Robby Starbuck immediately jumped into action, creating a video to show Joe Biden and his handful of supporters that Antifa is hardly an “idea,” but instead, a well-organized, violent domestic terror group.

Watch:

 

#WalkAway founder Brandon Straka, one of America’s bravest patriots, shared a screenshot this morning from “Antifa [idea] leader” Adam Rahuba, of Pittsburgh, PA, warning President Trump and his supporters that if he doesn’t concede and turn the keys over to the far-left, radical regime of puppet Joe Biden, there will be blood in the streets of the suburbs in America.

The tweet reads: Attn: @realDonaldTrump

If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas.

Your supporters will not be able to go to work or go to the grocery store to feed their families.

We are armed and will retaliate to attempts of vehicular homicide.

 

Here are a few tweets by Adam Rahuba, whose Twitter account has now been suspended. His tweets include comments about “targeting conservative politicians” and how he’s begun “operations directly against MAGA voters.” Hmmm….wonder what that means?

In this tweet, Rahuba admits he voted for Biden, even though he claims he doesn’t “feel good” about it.

On November 1, Rahuba advertised rides to the polls in the Pittsburg, PA area, asking for people to donate money to his Venmo account to pay for gas. (Source of tweets: WayBackMachine)

Rahuba’s Twitter account is littered with threats of violence and targeted hatred, yet he was allowed to continue to tweet, while conservatives have been removed en masse for tweeting about “Q-Anon,” and almost every tweet of the President of the United States is tagged as “disputed” by Twitter.

This is big tech censorship at its finest. How many mainstream media outlets will report about Rahuba’s violent threats against “conservative areas”? Does anyone else find it curious that only conservative media outlets are able to access information that exposes the dark underbelly of the left?

Wreaths Across America back on at Arlington National Cemetery following backlash over cancellation


The secretary of the Army and President Donald Trump declared Tuesday that the annual Wreaths Across America event at Arlington National Cemetery will go on as scheduled next month, following backlash after the cemetery’s leadership cancelled the 2020 ceremony over COVID-19 concerns.

On Monday, Arlington National Cemetery announced that resting place for many of America’s honored fallen would not participate in the nationwide Wreaths Across America event slated on Dec. 19, voicing concerns over the coronavirus pandemic while citing the high volume of volunteers and visitors that descend upon the grounds. The notice was met overwhelmingly with disappointment and anger on social media, and several GOP lawmakers called for the decision to be reversed.

Former Navy SEAL officer Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) tweeted, “This decision to cancel #wreathsacrossamerica must be reversed immediately. Critical thinking must win out over emotion. Large areas, outside and well spaced, with masks on, is perfectly safe. Our fallen deserve to be remembered.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a former Army officer, wrote, “I encourage Army leaders to reconsider this decision. Thousands of people have marched in DC streets the past couple weekends for Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Surely volunteers can responsibly place wreaths on the graves of our fallen heroes at Arlington.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy announced, “I have directed Arlington National Cemetery to safely host Wreaths Across America. We appreciate the families and visitors who take time to honor and remember those who are laid to rest at our nation’s most hallowed ground.”

President Trump said the order came directly from him, declaring on Twitter, “I have reversed the ridiculous decision to cancel Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery. It will now go on!”

What is Wreaths Across America?

As The Blaze previously reported:

Wreaths Across America is a nationwide event held at cemeteries across the country, involving the laying of wreaths at the graves of America’s fallen heroes each December. Its stated mission is to “remember our fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve,” and “teach your children the value of freedom.”

The Wreaths Across America organization expressed its disappointment in Arlington’s decision, issuing a statement saying, “As an organization, we are shocked by this unexpected turn of events. To say we are devastated, would be an understatement.” The group noted that the event will still move forward at more than 2,400 other participating cemeteries across the U.S.

Final poll: Trump takes major lead in battleground state after being tied with Biden just weeks ago


President Donald Trump has taken a significant lead over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Iowa, signaling that Trump’s support in “fly-over” country is stronger than most polling has indicated. The final Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll of the 2020 election season found that Trump leads Biden by a whopping seven points ahead of Election Day, 48% to 41%.

Among the remaining respondents, 3% said they were voting for someone other than Trump or Biden, 2% said they were undetermined, and 5% did not want to reveal which candidate they support. The poll is conducted by the highly-respected Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, and is known as the “gold standard” of political polls.

What is most significant about the poll is that, just several weeks ago, the same survey found that Trump and Biden were tied in Iowa at 47% each. According to J. Ann Selzer, president of Selzer & Co., Trump is once again winning over independents, which explains the significant bump in his support in Iowa.

“The president is holding demographic groups that he won in Iowa four years ago, and that would give someone a certain level of comfort with their standing,” Selzer explained, the Des Moines Register reported. “There’s a consistent story in 2020 to what happened in 2016.”

“I think that the key to what’s happening with President Trump is that he is leading with independents,” she added. “That is a group that in Iowa in our September poll looked like it was swinging to Joe Biden, and it’s come back to be a Trump asset.”

Selzer said the gender gap — in which men are more likely to support Trump and women more likely to support Biden — has also narrowed in Trump’s favor.

“We saw a huge gender gap that benefited Biden in September,” Selzer said. “And while there is still a big gap among men — they’re going for Trump by a 24-point margin — it’s just a 9-point margin for Biden with women. And so there’s just an imbalance there. Before, we saw mirror images of each other.”

The Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll also spelled good news for Sen. Joni Ernst (R), who is locked in a tight battle for control over the Senate seat she currently holds. The latest poll found that Ernst leads Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield by four points, 46% to 42%. The showing is also a turnabout from September’s poll, which found Ernst trailing Greenfield by three points.

Days Before The Trump/Biden Election – New Rasmussen Poll Gives President Trump His First Lead In Months


Reported By Adam Casalino | October 26, 2020

Days Before The Trump/Biden Election – New Rasmussen Poll Gives President Trump His First Lead In Months

Next week, Americans will decide who will sit in the Oval Office come January. For a long time, the polls declared Sleepy Joe Biden was a shoo-in. Even Rasmussen, an outlet trusted by some conservatives, claimed Trump was behind Joe—at one time as far back as 12 points.

But even left-wing polls seem to be turning around. When we look at the country at large, something is definitely happening. And now, Rasmussen has released a new poll that should force Biden out of hiding:

The latest national telephone and online survey finds Trump edging Democrat Joe Biden 48% to 47% among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while two percent (2%) remain undecided.

The latest Rasmussen poll has Trump with just a slightest of leads. That’s a 13 point swing since Rasmussen reported a 12-point lead for Biden only a few weeks ago. This is consistent with many other polls, that see Trump leading in swing states by a small margin. National polls are questionable, at best, given this is a state-by-state, electoral election. And we’ve gone over (and over) how polls from the mainstream media can be easily skewed to benefit Democrats.

(And we know that nearly 61% of Americans don’t like to admit their political views.)

With that in mind, this poll should be staggering. The mainstream media continues to refuse that Trump has been a remarkably successful president. They pretend he is a failure, hated by Americans and that Joe Biden is our great white salvation. Meanwhile, they cover up the mountain of scandals, gaffes, and outright odd behavior by Sleepy Joe. So, for any mainstream poll to give Trump any kind of lead suggests he is way ahead of Biden.

We’ve seen for months Joe hide in his basement, refusing to do many events. He peeped out for a little bit at the end of the Summer, but with just days before the election, he’s not campaigning Monday in swing states. I guess he doesn’t want to do damage control over his promise to “transition” from the oil industry. He probably just expects the media to cover for him.

Meanwhile, Trump is traveling across the country to packed out venues and airfields, hosting “peaceful protests” with thousands in attendance. Reminds us a lot of another presidential race, doesn’t it? On top of that, we are seeing rallies and parades for Trump in places that shouldn’t have a single Trump supporter, like Miami and Beverly Hills.

Maybe Joe should, you know, come out of hiding?

Key Takeaways:

  •       Rasmussen reveals Trump is leading Biden in their latest poll.
  •       Biden has been hiding for days since his debate performance.
  •       Trump is hosting rallies across the country.

BREAKING: President Donald Trump TAKES LEAD Over Joe Biden in Rasmussen Daily ‘White House Watch’ — 4 Point Swing in ONE WEEK


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published October 26, 2020 at 9:39am

President Trump took the lead today over Democrat Joe Biden in the Rasmussen daily “White House Watch” poll. Trump was down by three points last week. That’s a four point swing in a week!

It’s neck-and-neck, with President Trump just barely ahead in Rasmussen Reports’ first daily White House Watch survey.

The latest national telephone and online survey finds Trump edging Democrat Joe Biden 48% to 47% among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while two percent (2%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Last Wednesday, Biden held a 49% to 46% lead, but the race has been tightening since early in the month. This is the first time Trump has been ahead since mid-September.

President Trump also holds a 52% favorability rating in Monday’s Rasmussen reporting.

Days After The Final Debate, A Flood Of New 2020 Polls Show The Tide May Be Turning For President Trump


Reported By Jon Brenner | October 23, 2020

Days After The Final Debate, A Flood Of New 2020 Polls Show The Tide May Be Turning For President Trump

The final presidential debate gave Trump the opportunity to highlight his track record in office—compared to Biden’s short list of accomplishments as Vice President. And now, just days before election day, it looks like the polls are starting to move significantly. For months they showed Biden with a significant lead nationally and in key battleground states. But a flood of new polls show something has definitely changed across the board, from swing states to nationwide. From Rasmussen:

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds Trump beating Biden 49% to 46%.

Factor in those who haven’t made up their minds yet but are leaning toward one candidate or the other, and Trump gains another point, besting Biden 50% to 46%.

Florida is a must-win state for Trump. He won it narrowly in 2016, and polls showed him trailing Biden. But Donald seems to be peaking at just the right time. But to get to 270, Donald also needs to pick up at least one of the big three blue swing states: Pennsylvania, Michigan or Wisconsin. And while he’s running close in all of them, it looks like he could be surging ahead in one of them.

From Zia Poll, via Twitter:

 

That’s a great poll for Trump. He won Michigan by a much closer margin last time, and other polls are still showing a Biden lead there, so Trump has to focus on picking up these Midwest states. His economic arguments to open up and support the oil and racking industries should help his cause.

But there’s a movement beyond the swing states—it looks like there is a major move nationally that looks quite different from 2016. From Gallup, via Twitter:

 

A 6-point swing is a big deal for Republicans across the board. This will of course help Trump, but could also help key Senate races and take away at least a chunk of Pelosi’s majority in the House. It could be an indication that America has had enough of the political games Pelosi has been playing during a serious crisis.

And lastly, there’s considerably good news for President Trump. From Rasmussen:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday… shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

This is the second day in a row Trump is over 50% approval. He was at 52% yesterday, near a historic high. That bodes well for his electoral chances. It seems to match up with the recent poll showing 56% of Americans are better off since Trump took office.

And it is better than what Obama had at this point in his term. And keep in mind, Mitt Romney was polling strongly against Obama but it became apparent early on election night that his position was not nearly as strong as the polls claimed.

We may be starting to see a repeat of 2012, where the power of the incumbency and general polling being too generous for the challenger made the incumbent look vulnerable. But in the end, like Trafalgar pollster and others are predicting, Trump may be in a much stronger position than many think.

Do you think Trump will beat Biden in 2020?

Hours After The Final Presidential Debate, Donald Trump’s Approval With Black Voters Hits The Stratosphere At 46%


Reported By Adam Casalino | October 23, 2020

Hours After The Final Presidential Debate, Donald Trump’s Approval With Black Voters Hits The Stratosphere At 46%

They say if a Republican got 25% support from black voters, Democrats would never win another election. Well, right now, Democrats must be sweating bullets. They seemed to think they owned black voters’ choices for years. Biden was so confident about it, he slammed black Trump supporters saying “you ain’t black.” Well, that didn’t go over well. Nor did the many other things Biden’s said and done.

And now, a new poll came out this morning that reveals just how black voters feel about Trump:

 

National Daily Black Likely Voter Job Approval For @POTUS – October 19-23, 2020

Mon 10/19 – 25%

Tue 10/20 – 24%

Wed 10/21 – 31%

Thu 10/22 – 37%

Fri 10/23 – 46%

You read that right. Black voter support steadily climbed for Trump during the week, peaking on Friday at 46%. According to our records, that’s the highest black approval number Trump’s ever gotten. And by far the highest we’ve ever seen for a Republican president since perhaps Lincoln. Some estimate this will result in at least 20% black support for Trump on November 3.

How can these numbers jump so quickly in just a week? It has more to do than just Biden’s horrible comments and criticisms of black Americans. Trump has been making a strong case that he had done much more for black folks than Biden’s ever had.

Trump has brought prison reform, where Joe brought more incarcerations. Trump is bringing investment and jobs to the inner cities that Biden ignored. Trump is bringing school choice for black families, as Biden prioritizes the corrupt teachers’ unions. And Trump is making sure all Americans see higher wages and greater opportunity.

Do you think the black vote will propel Trump to a big November win?

Key Takeaways:

  • President Trump’s black voter approval jumped to 46%.
  • Joe Biden continues to lose support from black Americans, thanks to his record and comments.
  • Trump has prioritized helping the black community, through numerous reforms.

Dems are Starting To Panic After What Just Happened To Biden During Minnesota Trip


Written by Staff Writer | October 23, 2020

Outside of the torched remains of Minnesota’s Twin Cities area, a liberal stronghold, Democrats are starting to panic.

The 36-year Delaware senator and former Vice President took a trip after to Duluth Minnesota to visit Hermantown’s Jerry Alander Carpenter Training Center. This was his first trip to Minnesota, which is already a warning sign to Democrats. Minnesota is usually a lock for Democrats and Biden’s appearance reveals cracks in the damn.

When Biden arrived he was greeted by at least 300 Trump supporters organized by the RNC. Democrats only mustered about half of that and many of the people that showed up didn’t know each other or had signs.

Democrat Tommy Moe told the Washington Examiner that Trump has a very real chance of winning the state this time. Moe, 65, said that he knows a lot of union workers that have an “affinity” for Trump because of his stance on China.

“We didn’t have a very good turnout,” he said. “If the Democrats don’t get their act together and start getting as fired up as the Republican side is … we need a turnout. Democrats win if they turn out.”

Lynn Welshinger, 72, Biden supporter, agreed the Democrats failed to organize anything for Biden’s trip six weeks outside Election Day.

“But I know Biden wants to keep everybody safe. That’s why he’s doing this kind of thing and not having big venues,” the Duluth retiree said.

“We’re just hoping that Biden will beat him. Who knows? People aren’t going to believe it if he does, and then, they’re going to take to the street with their guns if Trump loses,” she added. “He doesn’t care if we go into a civil war. It’s scary.”

Poor Lynn, she is drinking the liberal kool-aid.

Eric Ostermeier, who curates the Minnesota Historical election Archive said Biden has a rough road ahead of him. He explained that if Biden wants to win Minnesota Duluth and Hermantown’s St. Louis county is important.

“It is the sixth most populous county, and Trump won only 39.7% of the vote there in 2016 — his fourth-worst showing among the state’s 87 counties,” Ostermeier said.

In 2016 St. Louis County only had 70.8% turn out, compared to an 81.1% turn out in Minneapolis.

“So, Biden will be looking to create more enthusiasm in St. Louis County, and this northern region where there are perhaps more votes to be found than some of the metro area counties where turnout was exceedingly high,” Ostermeier said.

Ostermeier is claiming that (in his opinion) Trump’s strategy is a “long-shot.”

“In short, part of Trump’s strategy is to cobble together enough votes by boosting turnout in a lot of these more rural counties in Greater Minnesota,” Ostermeier said. “This is a bit of a long-shot strategy, however, as Biden likely has greater appeal in these regions than Clinton and can at least blunt the decline in support Democrats have endured there, if not reverse it in some areas.”

If this was 2016 Ostermeier could be right however, this is 2020. Radical leftists just burned down a city in their state. Joe can spend money in Minnesota on ads claiming unions love him however, his record on China has been exposed.

Actions speak louder than words, the fact that Biden is “campaigning” in Minnesota and spending money says a lot.

This isn’t 2016 and the Democrat’s are starting to panic.

Debate recap: More presidential Trump hits Biden as ‘corrupt,’ ‘all talk, no action’ politician in final effort to turn election


In the last debate Thursday night before the Nov. 3 election, a much more reserved and presidential Donald Trump set out to label Democratic challenger Joe Biden as a corrupt, do-nothing politician in an appeal to the American people to grant him four more years.

During the debate in Nashville, Tennessee, moderated by NBC News’ Kristen Welker, Trump routinely hit Biden for being “all talk, no action” and pressed him on why he didn’t accomplish reforms while he was the vice president or in the Senate. At one point, he looked at Biden and said, “I ran because of you … because I thought you did a poor job.”

Biden weathered the attacks and shot back characterizing Trump as a president unfit for office and unable to handle the responsibility of leading a nation.

Key exchanges

On the coronavirus: The first question of the night predictably was about the coronavirus pandemic, which Welker described as entering a “dangerous new phase.”

Though usually a weak point for Trump, the president seemed to handle himself ably on the topic, even getting in a good dig on Biden regarding shutdowns, saying, “We can’t lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does.” Biden espoused a grim tone on the topic, warning that America is heading into a “dark winter” and that, contrary to Trump’s suggestion that Americans are “learning to live with” the virus, under Trump’s leadership, they are actually “learning to die with it.”

Foreign entanglements: Welker artfully facilitated discussion on the hot-button issue of the debate — Hunter Biden’s laptop — by lumping the controversy into what she called “foreign entanglements” involving each candidate. Once the conversation was underway, it turned into perhaps the most fiery spat of the debate. Trump pressed Biden on new reports about his family profiting off of his high-profile government position, and Biden shot back at Trump over his tax returns and foreign investments.

At one point, Biden made a statement he will almost certainly regret, claiming: “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source in my life.”

Unfortunately, Welker never specifically cornered the former vice president into answering the New York Post’s bombshell reports about his family allegedly profiting off his position in government and kicking back proceeds to him.

Immigration: Trump wiggled out of what could have been a detrimental segment for him on the topic of child separations at the border by noting that the “cages,” or chain-linked holding centers, where illegal immigrant children are kept were built during the Obama administration. Trump repeatedly taunted the former vice president, saying, “Who built the cages, Joe?” while he was castigating Trump for “ripping” children from their families.

Biden then promised to implement a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants and DACA recipients.

Regardless of political persuasion, everyone will likely agree that this debate was far more rewarding for viewers.

Surprisingly, the addition of the mute button seemed to be an obvious success as each candidate was able to answer initial questions without interruption or provocation.

Ann Coulter Op-ed: Stumper: Should Trump Mention His Most Popular Issue?

Stumper: Should Trump Mention His Most Popular Issue?

Source: AP Photo/Elise Amendola

Trending

In 2015, Donald J. Trump decided he was going to run for president on popular ideas. This was a stunning, historic breakthrough in American politics. He made his announcement in a speech talking about Mexican rapists, pledging to deport illegal aliens and build a wall. And the rest is history.

I’m thinking he should try it again this Thursday night.

Recall that Trump’s famous escalator speech provided any number of possible campaign themes:

Bomb ISIS!

Take their oil!

Protect our veterans!

Bring our jobs home!

Repeal Common Core!

Repeal Obamacare!

Protect the Second Amendment!

Make China pay!

Concealed carry!

But that’s not what the crowds chanted. They certainly weren’t chanting “Reform Social Security!” or “Protect Ukraine’s national sovereignty!” No, the slogan that inspired a million T-shirts, chalk etchings, replicas and hashtags was: Build the wall!

Month after month, at every rally, whenever Trump mentioned the wall, the crowds went wild. It was Trump’s one surefire standing ovation, his “Free Bird” at a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert. Even before Trump would take the stage, his supporters would start the chant: “BUILD THE WALL!”

Before the 2016 Iowa caucuses, Daily Beast columnist Michael Moynihan tweeted: “Talked to lots of Trump supporters in Iowa. When I pointed out he wasn’t a conservative, all had same answer: ‘So? The wall!’”

Naturally, the media reacted as if Trump had called for gas chambers. But that just made him look like a brave truth-teller. The media furrowed their brows and explained that Trump was “riding a wave of anger against Washington.” He was appealing to “this very visceral, very angry populist working-class blue-collar worker.”

So it was furious boiling anger. On the other hand, if it was just trash talk the voters yearned for, why did New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie sink like a rock?

Political analysts kept droning on and on about Trump’s mysterious appeal, but in all their prolix analyses, I can’t find a single one saying, BOY, WERE WE WRONG ABOUT IMMIGRATION!

Even the so-called “Muslim ban” — vilified by the media — helped Trump. Why were we admitting people to our country who would turn around and shoot up the San Bernardino Inland Regional Center?

Back then, Trump’s attacks on the media were premised on policy — not their personal attacks on him. That’s why his supporters would never desert him, even as he was libeled from every media outlet every minute of every day.

The media claimed Trump’s popularity was just a cult of personality, but the one thing most voters weren’t wild about was his personality. Unfortunately, Trump may be the only person who actually believes the fake news on this. He seems to think that what drove him to a stunning upset victory in 2016 was that the public just adores the big lunk!

Rough estimate of topics in the typical Trump campaign speech, 2020:

40 minutes: Re-living 2016 election night

20 minutes: His experience with COVID — he’s better than ever!

15 minutes: Insults Biden, Kamala, the media

20 minutes: Brags about his crowd size and how his fans LOVE him (they never loved Reagan like this!)

0 minutes: Biden’s massively unpopular promise to amnesty illegal aliens and halt deportations on his “first day in office.”

Mass immigration is a huge boon for Democrats. It gives them lots of new voters. That’s immigrants’ primary skill: voting. We’ve become the country feared by John C. Calhoun, divided into people who work for a living and people who vote for a living.

Not only do Democrats need the votes, but their blind hatred of Everything Trump, means they are wedded to this ridiculously unpopular policy.

I have an idea! Why not make Biden talk about it?

New York magazine’s Andrew Sullivan (now on his own) and The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman and Frank Bruni — liberals all! — have begged the Democrats to drop the open borders nonsense. Even Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum wrote in astonishment last year that he couldn’t “see much daylight” between the Democrats’ ideas on immigration and “de facto open borders.”

Here’s Friedman, after watching a Democratic primary debate:

“I was shocked that so many were ready to decriminalize illegal entry into our country. I think people should have to ring the doorbell before they enter my house or my country.

“I was shocked at all those hands raised in support of providing comprehensive health coverage to undocumented immigrants. I think promises we’ve made to our fellow Americans should take priority, like to veterans in need of better health care.”

The media had a grand time calling Trump’s immigration policies “racist,” but unfortunately for them, Trump’s policies were popular with all kinds of voters. It wasn’t just “angry white men” who were losing their jobs and neighborhoods (and sometimes their lives) to immigrants. So were black people. So were Hispanics. So were teenagers. So were — well, to be fair, Asians were more likely to be the ones taking those jobs.

As Sullivan wrote: “[For Democrats, there are] no negatives to mass immigration at all, and no concern for existing American citizens’ interests in not having their wages suppressed through this competition.”

That’s probably why we don’t hear so much about Trump’s immigration policies being racist anymore. Now, it’s just the never-ending demand that Trump condemn “white supremacy.”

(Speaking of which, the debate this Thursday presents a golden opportunity to ask Trump the central question of this campaign. There’s a section on “Race,” and I think something along the lines of “Do you support white supremacy?” fits quite well under that rubric. Maybe — just maybe – we will finally get an answer to that question. Because let’s just admit it: If they don’t ask this time, they’re never gonna.)

If you want to know how Trump could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue in 2016 and not lose a single vote, look no further than his proposals on immigration.

It’s one thing to push an unpopular idea. The GOP does that all the time: the Trans-Pacific Partnership — how about the Iraq War?

How many people supported moving our embassy to Jerusalem? (Answer:36%.)

How many supported Bush’s plan to privatize Social Security? (Answer: 25%.)

How many supported Trump’s tax cuts? (Answer: 24%.)

How many thought immigration levels should be decreased or stay the same? (Answer: 75%.)

How many supported mass deportation of all illegal immigrants? (Answer: 54%.)

Trump’s genius was that he was pushing policies that were popular. Maybe he should try it again at this Thursday’s debate.

Town Hall Mahyem: Biden Flip Flops Like A Fish Not Even ABC’s Stephanopoulos Could Save Him (VIDEO)


Written by Staff Writer | October 15, 2020

Vice President Joe Biden was a hot mess during a town hall hosted by ABC and not even George Stephanopoulos could save him.

Biden flipped and flopped like a fish.

During the town hall, George Stephanopoulos did push Biden a bit over the issue of packing the Supreme Court. Biden claimed that he is opposed to court-packing but is open to it. Stephanopoulos actually gave Biden a way out of the question. He first read a quote from Biden during the Democrat primary when Biden denounced court-packing. Stephanopoulos then asked if the situation around the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett change your mind? The easy answer would have been yes but, not Joe Biden, here’s what happened…

Biden was a confused mess when asked if he supported the Green New Deal and fracking. When told that Union Boilermakers don’t buy his claim he won’t ban fracking Biden. Biden merely said, “the Boilermakers support me.” When pressed if he was for it or against, he never gave a true answer.

 

Fact check Joe, not true! The Boilermakers support President Trump.

 

I save the best for last.

When asked about police violence Biden said police should try shooting dangerous criminals “in the leg.”

 

During President Trump’s dueling town hall on NBC, President Trump stayed strong. Savannah Guthrie tried to ambush President Trump but, he was having none of it.

 

Trump seemed to be a little disappointed with Guthrie’s ambush.

 

Trump was very strong during his town hall and note the woman over his left your right shoulder.

 

Trump also hammered Pelosi.

 

Biden’s town hall was a mess he looked weak and flip-flopped like a fish. Meanwhile, President Trump stood up to Guthrie’s ambush was strong.

Three Weeks Before The 2020 Election, A New National Poll Swings 7 Points Towards The President


Reported By Jon Brenner | October 15, 2020

Three Weeks Before The 2020 Election, A New National Poll Swings 7 Points Towards The President

There’s only 18 days to go until Election Day, and America just saw a major swing in the polls. Just weeks ago, President Trump had closed the gap in the Rasmussen national poll to a statistical tie with Joe Biden. Then he nominated Amy Coney Barrett, finished his first debate, and contracted COVID-19. And for some reason, his daily approval rating and his standing against Biden went into a freefall.

Just one week ago, Rasmussen actually showed Trump trailing Biden by 12 points. But since then, Trump has recovered and gotten back out on the campaign trail. And Rasmussen’s new poll is showing a major swing:

With less than three weeks to go until Election Day, Democrat Joe Biden holds a five point-lead over President Trump in Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey. But a week ago, Biden had a 12-point advantage, his biggest lead ever.

The latest national telephone and online survey finds Biden leading Trump 50% to 45% among Likely U.S. Voters.

That is a major swing back for President Trump. He’s still trailing, but with almost 3 weeks left, if he maintains that momentum, anything is still possible. Trump probably still has a final debate with Biden, and in the meantime we will have to see where new allegations involving Hunter will end up.

While most Trump supporters did not take the national polls seriously, when Rasmussen started showing the same results or worse, there was some fair cause for concern. Now President Trump needs to play these final weeks well. He needs to stay on message, highlighting the many promises he has kept. He should demand answers from Joe Biden that he has refused to answer.

But he should stay away from stirring up unnecessary controversies. Americans need to be reminded of his economic comeback, his judicial appointments, and his stellar foreign policy.

We will have to wait and see if this trend holds up for the President. Do you think Trump will pull off a 2020 victory?

NBC’s Savannah Guthrie accused of bias after contentious Trump town hall


NBC’s Savannah Guthrie received gushing reviews from leftists and scorn from conservatives after being visibly combative toward President Donald Trump during the network’s town hall for the president Thursday night. The moderator pushed back forcefully against the president’s responses, in stark contrast to the tone set by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in his dueling town hall for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Critics accused Guthrie of having a clear agenda against Trump.

Fox News reported that “Viewers who tuned into the Peacock Network expected to hear questions from voters, but similarly to the NBC town hall with Biden, questions for nearly the first 20 minutes of the program came from the moderator.” The outlet noted that, “Guthrie spent much of that time grilling Trump on masks and white supremacy,” and “that didn’t sit well with many.”

Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik tweeted, “The @DNC propaganda press, I cannot even fake it. @SavannahGuthrie Look like an unhinged as*, and it’s a shame. I thought she was better than that. The good thing for President @realDonaldTrump… Any reasonable viewer could see she was biased, obnoxious and on a mission.”

Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary, wrote, “I just switched to NBC since ABC is in a commercial. Savanah Guthrie has interrupted Trump in these 60 seconds more than Stephanopulos has done to Biden in 40 mins. NBC is an interrogation. ABC is a picnic.”

The Hill’s Joe Concha tweeted during the event, “Trump denounces White Supremacy multiple times. Savannah Guthrie follows by accusing Trump of dodging. This is already an absolute joke. And does the audience get to ask questions?” Concha followed up, “Trump denounces white supremacy a good four times. Guthrie: “It sounds like your dodging.”

President Trump’s campaign declared victory after it was all over, with spokesman Tim Murtaugh saying in a statement, “Even though the commission canceled the in-person debate that could have happened tonight, one occurred anyway, and President Trump soundly defeated NBC’s Savannah Guthrie in her role as debate opponent and Joe Biden surrogate.”

NBC had received widespread criticism from Democrats and its own employees for even holding the event and giving air time to President Trump, after he refused to participate in the Commission on Presidential Debates’ proposed “virtual” matchup between him and Biden.

But, according to The Washington Post, Guthrie’s “grilling” of Trump took “the heat off NBC for its town hall.”

Weeks Before The 2020 Election – President Trump’s Approval Rating Takes A Major Turn Upwards


Reported By Adam Casalino | October 12, 2020

Weeks Before The 2020 Election – President Trump’s Approval Rating Takes A Major Turn Upwards

If you bother to believe the media’s polls, you’d think Biden has it in the bag. Despite shockingly low enthusiasm from his own base, the media claims Biden has a lead Trump cannot catch. But the reality, as we’ve seen for years, is often much different than what the MSM says.

Trump’s latest poll from Rasmussen is more than an eye-opener:

Breaking News: @realDonaldTrump earned a 50% monthly job approval in September – up from 48% in August and his highest monthly job approval for the year to date. His previous high was 49% in February.

Rasmussen gives Trump his highest monthly approval ever at 50%. That’s up from August when it was 48%. That’s not all. His daily approval keeps getting better and better:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday… shows that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Rasmussen’s approval polls have shown Trump’s support growing among likely voters. These aren’t election polls, but they are a strong indicator of how Americans feel about the president. And by following trends, we can see if a candidate is improving or declining. Trump’s monthly and daily approval numbers either matched Obama’s at the same time or have even surpassed them. Obama went on to win re-election easily.

That’s significant considering the overwhelmingly negative coverage Trump receives from most mainstream outlets. Obama, on the other hand, was handled with kid gloves. Another important factor to note is that Trump’s approval is reaching record highs after one of the worst years America has seen in years. The country battled lockdowns, COVID, riots, and all kinds of high jobs against the president. You’d think his approval would be hovering around 20-30% at best. Instead, he is seeing rising approval, even as the media accuses him of all kinds of stuff.

Add to that the surging support we’re seeing from Americans around the country. It looks like Trump has the same level of enthusiasm from voters as he did in 2016—perhaps more so. We’re seeing parades and rallies for the president in deep blue states—something they said shouldn’t be happening.

Meanwhile, Biden can’t even get people to show up at a “big event” like the one he recently held in Arizona (even the local news made fun of him).

Do you really believe the MSM polls? Or are you going to vote for a 2020 red landslide?

Key Takeaways:

  • Rasmussen reveals Trump’s monthly support is the highest recorded at 50%.
  • His daily approval continues to improve.
  • Overall voter enthusiasm is strongly on Trump’s side.

After Pelosi Pushes 25th Amendment Bill To Remove President, Senator Loeffler Counters With Her Own Resolution


Reported By Adam Casalino  |October 12, 2020

After Pelosi Pushes 25th Amendment Bill To Remove President, Senator Loeffler Counters With Her Own Resolution

Much has been said about Nancy Pelosi’s “25th Amendment Committee.” We know that it takes legislation for Congress to remove a president using that amendment. And it’s unlikely the Senate nor Trump would sign off.

Some think Pelosi might be trying to affect the election by saying Trump is unfit. Others, like the president himself, believe she is doing this to remove Biden (if elected) and install Kamala.

Either way, one senator is fighting back with a move of her own:

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) is expected to introduce a resolution to condemn House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after the Democratic lawmaker announced the creation of a “Commission on President Capacity.”

The Republican senator’s resolution that she will introduce suggests Pelosi “has failed to put forward a just cause for invoking the 25th Amendment,” as The Hill reports. It also accuses House Democrats of trying to “delegitimize” the presidency of President Donald Trump.

According to Pelosi’s bill, she wants to make it so Congress can decide if a president should stay in office. Sounds like she is trying to create a backdoor system to impeach a president—if regular impeachment doesn’t work.

Critics can easily accuse Pelosi of trying to undermine a president Congress doesn’t like or refuses to work with. Which is exactly what Sen. Loeffler is accusing her of. The senator has introduced a resolution to call Pelosi’s bill what it is: a scheme to “delegitimize” Trump’s presidency, just weeks before the election. Loeffler says Pelosi has no real reason for invoking the 25th Amendment and her resolution would be a powerful rebuke against the Speaker.

It’s no secret that Pelosi has tried to undermine the president at every turn. Remember, she impeached him over a phone call. She tore up his SOTU address. And she tried to contradict his efforts to battle the virus, by encouraging people to visit San Francisco in February.

By talking about the 25th Amendment right now, it looks as if Pelosi is trying to spoil the election. Just as people go to the polls (some with early voting), she is trying to say Trump is “too sick” to be in office. Pretty rich, considering the state of his rival!

Democrats have accused Trump and others of “election interference.” How can this move by Pelosi be viewed any other way? She seems to be trying to influence the election by pretending to be “concerned” for the office.

Are you buying that?

Key Takeaways:

  • Sen Loeffler is introducing a resolution to answer Pelosi’s 25th Amendment scheme.
  • She accuses the Speaker of trying to undermine and delegitimizing Trump’s presidency.
  • Pelosi is pushing this move, just weeks before the election.

President Trump puts ball in Pelosi’s court, tweets support for ‘stand alone’ $1,200 stimulus checks


Hours after demanding the cancellation of further negotiation on a wholesale coronavirus relief package until after the election, President Donald Trump signaled support for a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks to be paid to the American people.

In a tweet sent late Tuesday night, the president vouched for the independent measure, saying, “If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now.”

“Are you listening Nancy?” he taunted, before tagging Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other congressional leadership.

Wednesday morning, Trump doubled down on the move, tweeting “Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign! @Speaker Pelosi.”

In addition to the stimulus checks, the president also signaled support for another independent measure, tweeting he would immediately sign a bill to distribute $135 billion to small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and another $25 billion to airline companies for payroll support.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump appeared to scrap plans for a comprehensive coronavirus relief bill by announcing he instructed administration officials to discontinue talks with Democrats on the matter. He also asked the Senate to “focus full time” on confirming his nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, to the Supreme Court.

The president blamed Pelosi for the end to negotiations, arguing she continuously requested too much money and was “not negotiating in good faith.”

“Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19,” he tweeted. “We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith.”

In response to the tweets, Pelosi put out a statement blasting the president and saying he was once again showing “his true colors: putting himself first at the expense of the country.”

“Walking away from coronavirus talks demonstrates that President Trump is unwilling to crush the virus,” she added.

But the move by Trump may have been a negotiating tactic. By removing comprehensive relief from the negotiating table but insisting upon stimulus checks, Trump may have forced Pelosi and the Democrats to give the president a victory before the election. Or, if she rejects the offer, it could backfire.

New National Poll of Likely Voters Shows Donald Trump Leading Joe Biden, 46%-45%


Published By 

new poll from the Democracy Institute and the UK’s Daily Express reveals that President Donald Trump is leading Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, with a lead of 46% to 45% over the former Vice President.

The poll was conducted after the news of President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis was revealed. 68% of voters said the disease would not effect their vote. 19% said that it made them more likely to support the President, and 13% of voters said it would make them less likely to do so.

The Democracy Institute poll differs from surveys conducted by corporate mainstream media outlets in that it seeks to query what it defines as “likely voters,” as opposed to all registered voters, some of whom simply don’t end up voting in the election. The poll also accounts for what it describes as ‘shy voters-‘ revealing that 77% of Trump supporters are not inclined to admit their political preferences to some of their friends and family members.

Winning the popular vote would almost assuredly deliver President Trump a whopping electoral college victory, with the poll estimating he would capture 320 electoral college votes if the poll results were concisely accurate. Many conservative voters in reliably blue states such as New York and California don’t vote.

Curiously, “law and order” is the most pressing political issue in the minds of voters in the poll, with 32% of Americans identifying it as the most important issue in the election. This would certainly bode well for Trump’s electoral prospects, as Joe Biden has consistently refused to condemn the criminal ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter riot movements.

NBC also released a methodologically slanted poll on Sunday, sampling a whopping 45% Democrats to claim that Biden was leading Trump by 14%. The electorate of the 2016 voting population was just above 30% Democrat, suggesting NBC’s poll is little more than political fantasy.
