Graham Says Trump is Republican Party’s “Most Potent Force”, Calls McConnell’s Tirade “an Outlier” That Will Weigh on the Party Down the Road

See the source image reports that

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said Donald Trump remains the party’s “most potent force” even after his second impeachment, and suggested Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hurt the GOP by blaming the former president for the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

“The Trump movement is alive and well,” Graham, one of Trump’s most consistent allies, said on “Fox News Sunday.” “All I can say is the most potent force in the Republican Party is President Trump. We need Trump-plus.”

The South Carolina senator’s comments reflect the internal struggle facing the party after a minority of Republican senators sided with Democrats on Saturday and voted to convict Trump of inciting supporters to breach the Capitol, clash with police, and interfere with the certification of his election defeat by the Senate.

Trump’s level of support among the GOP base will help determine his future role in the party. Graham said there’s no question Republicans need to work with Trump to win future elections and that he’ll be meeting him in Florida “next week.”

“We can’t do it without him,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.”

McConnell’s speech, in which the top Republican in the Senate denounced Trump as “practically and morally responsible” for the storming Capitol — despite voting to acquit him on the impeachment charge — was “an outlier” that will weigh on the party down the road, Graham said.

“He got a load off his chest, obviously.” Graham said. “But unfortunately, he put a load on the back of Republicans. That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns.”

Republicans who have crossed Trump, including House members who voted for his impeachment in January and the senators who joined Democrats in Saturday’s vote, have already met pushback from within the GOP.

Senators Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Richard Burr of North Carolina were both censured on Saturday by their state parties. Burr plans to retire from the Senate at the end of his term; Cassidy was re-elected in November and won’t face voters again until 2026.

“I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty,” Cassidy said Saturday in a tweet.

In another sign that Trump’s influence could live on, Graham predicted the former president’s daughter in law, Lara Trump, could run for Burr’s Senate seat in 2022.

“I think she represents the future of the Republican Party,” Graham said.

You know, boys and girls, for somebody who never saw a camera he didn’t like, “Miss” Lindsey has hit the nail square on the proverbial head/.

The old Guard of the Republican Party, the GOP Elite, if you will, need to pull their heads out of their backsides and come up for air.

Sen. Graham just gave them a Reality Check.

Over 74 million Americans voted for Donald J. Trump in the 2020 Presidential Election.

That is a lot of voters whom the GOP desperately need if they are going to compete in the Midterm Elections in 2022 or the  Presidential Election in 2024.

The GOP Elite and the Democrat Elite have a lot in common, the major things being political tone-deafness and a purposeful distancing of themselves from their constituents.

The Capitol Hill Elite believe that we back home in the Heartland are a bunch of rubes.

Look at McConnell’s tirade after the acquittal on Saturday.

He sounded like a Democrat.

I guess that is what happens when you play the role of a Vichy Republican for decades.

You forget who your boss is.

McConnell is a very politically-astute Senator who has been up on Mount Olympus…err…Capitol Hill since bully was a calf.

The problem is the fact that while he has made fiery speeches condemning the “opposition party”, he has spent his time in power being nothing more than a lackey to them.

Saturday, he knew that he had to vote for acquittal because he would probably lose his position of power if he did not.

However, his TDS got the best of him, along with his jealousy over the fact the Trump, and not he, remains, as Graham said, the Republican Party’s “most potent force”.

Gee, Mitch. If you had actually grown a spine and done something in Washington all of these years, that might have been you who was indispensable.

The cold hard truth is, without Donald J. Trump as the face of the Republicans Party, y’all are the Democrat Party Lite.

So, suck it up, Buttercup. Figure out which side your bread is buttered on and get with the program…or retire.

Otherwise, Sen. Graham and the rest of the Republicans who have already wizened up are going to kick you to the curb.

Trump 2, Pelosi 0 – Trump Issues Statement After Being Acquitted – “Together There is Nothing We Cannot Accomplish”

Image posted the following Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America after he was acquitted in an unconstitutional Trial brought before the Senate by the House Democrats…

I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.

My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.

Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.

It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.

This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.

I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and challenging times.

Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!

We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.

Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God, and it’s our responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance for our children and for generations of Americans to come.

May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.

I must confess, I watched the proceedings gavel-to-gavel yesterday.

And, as someone who has served on both State and Federal Grand Juries, I can tell you that it did my heart good to see the down-to-earth Philadelphia Lawyer, Michael Van Der Veen, mop the floor with a bunch of self-righteous Democrat House Managers.

When Van Der Veen called Raskin’s bluff about calling witnesses, I shouted “Yes!” so loud I was afraid the neighbors heard me.

The House Managers’ smugness  was simply overconfidence masking the fact that they were not prepared to logically argue the Article of Impeachment. Heavily-edited video packages and emotional rhetoric are no substitute for the truth.

Van Der Veen cut up and laid out the House Managers’ flimsy case like a Japanese chef cooking fried rice at Benihana.

It was a joy to watch.

Judging from his response, I believe that Former President Trump enjoyed the work of his attorneys, as well.

His statement above reminds me of what we lost on November 3, 2020.

We lost a genuine American President.

A Citizen Statesman who loves the American people and who believes that we are the greatest people and the greatest country in the world.

As he wrote in his response, President Trump “BACKS THE BLUE”.

The Democrats only do when they can use them to make a political point. Otherwise, they want to defund them to stay in the good graces of BLM, Antifa, and the rest of their Far Left Voting Base.

Unlike todays Democrat Elite who reside on Capitol Hill, President Trump still believes in the things that have made America great.

And, whether he decides to run in 2024 for President again or not, he will still be a voice who matters in American Politics.

Don’t believe me? Just look at videos of the Democrat Meltdown by the Elites on both sides of the political aisle on Capitol Hill yesterday afternoon.

It was glorious.

Congressional Democrats Have “The Sads” After Trump’s Acquittal…Good!

pelosi-ripped-li-600 reports that

The Senate overwhelmingly acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon following a brief trial, in a historic rejection of Democrats’ claims that the president’s Ukraine dealings and handling of congressional subpoenas merited his immediate removal from office.

Several Congressional Democrats, speaking to Fox News, were dejected on Capitol Hill late Wednesday, even as they said they hoped to weaponize the acquittal votes by several moderate Republicans in swing states.

“We all knew how this was going,” one senior House Democratic source told Fox News. “But everyone’s depressed. Especially because of Iowa,” where the first-in-the-nation caucuses have been plagued by mismanagement.

Another Democratic source also said that impeachment “went as well as it could go.” There was significant consternation among House Democrats about heading down the impeachment road at all over the summer, Fox News is told, but Democratic leaders felt they had to get in front of the impeachment movement and embrace it – or they may have been steamrolled by the progressive wing of the party.

In the final vote, all Democratic senators supported convicting the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, including swing-vote moderate Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Doug Jones, D-Ala.

The only party defection was on the abuse of power charge from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who declared hours before the final vote that Trump had engaged in as “destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine.” Romney voted not guilty on the obstruction charge.

By a final vote of 52-48 against conviction on the abuse of power charge and 53-47 against conviction on the obstruction charge, the Senate fell far short of the two-thirds, 67-vote supermajority needed to convict and remove the president. Swing-vote Republican senators — including Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee — voted to acquit on both counts.

The separate obstruction of Congress charge concerned the White House’s assertion of executive privilege and refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas. Romney explained he would acquit on the obstruction count, saying House Democrats had chosen not to respond to the White House’s legal arguments against the subpoenas.

After Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts formally declared Trump acquitted, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., presented him with the “Golden Gavel” award as a thank-you for his service. Former Chief Justice of the United States William Rehnquist received the same award, which is usually presented to freshmen senators after long hours presiding over the body, for his handling of President Bill Clinton’s 1999 impeachment trial.

“I look forward to seeing you all again under happier circumstances,” Roberts said as he concluded his remarks and prepared to depart the chamber.

Speaking to reporters after the vote, McConnell noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had resisted calls for impeachment from the party’s progressive wing before finally caving — and said she should have trusted her “instincts.”

“I’m pretty sure she didn’t want to do this,” McConnell said, referring to Pelosi’s lengthy reluctance to initiate impeachment proceedings. Trump, speaking to Fox News ahead of the Super Bowl, made a similar argument, saying the “radical” wing of the Democratic Party had pushed her into making a grave mistake and realizing her “worst nightmare.”

McConnell also said he was “perplexed” by Democrats’ arguments that the evidence against Trump was overwhelming and obvious, but at the same time, more witnesses and evidence were desperately needed.

He called the proceedings a “thoroughly political exercise,” and added that ironically, Pelosi was right “in the beginning” when she didn’t want to go down this path.

“This was a political loser for them,” McConnell said. “At least in the short-term, this has been a colossal political mistake.”

A Gallup poll released this week showed record-high approval numbers for Trump and the Republican Party in general, suggesting the impeachment proceedings may have backfired politically for Democrats. The Republican Party’s approval numbers were at their highest since 2005, and Trump’s were the highest of his presidency.

I am glad that Congressional Democrats are upset after the just acquittal of President Donald J. Trump in the Senate Impeachment Trial yesterday.

After what they have put this country through for the last 3 years they deserve to be upset.

God knows, average Americans have been.

Did they not understand what the result of the 2016 Presidential Election was all about?

It wasn’t about the Russians.

It wasn’t about the Ukrainians.

It was about average Americans, living between the coasts, who had finally had enough of the Far Left Democratic Party trying to radically change the greatest country on God’s green Earth into another Venezuela.

Average Americans were tired of being called close-minded, xenophobic, homophobic misogynists for believing in traditional American Faith and Values.

They were also tired of listening to our country and our heritage being insulted by those who were supposed to be its biggest advocates.

Average Americans were tired of the tyranny of the minority.

However, the election of Donald J. Trump to the office of President of the United States of America was more than just a protest vote.

It was an affirmation of the charge to keep given to us by those who came before…those who suffered and sacrificed in order to ensure that their children and their children’s children would “have it better” than they had.

Americans were tired of the empty promises of professional politicians.

So, we elected a Citizen Statesman, a successful businessman and entrepreneur, who knew how to get things done.

However, even before Trump took office, the Democrats decided that they could not leave the decision as to who should be president up to average Americans.

Therefore, they began attacking Trump, both covertly and overtly, through the use of Deep State Operatives and a willing Main Stream Media.

That led to made up charges concerning Russian interference on behalf of the Trump Campaign, which lead to a Special Counsel being appointed and Phase 1 of a taxpayer-funded Witch Hunt.

When that failed, House Democrats took a phone call made between the presidents of two Sovereign Nations and attempted to remove the President of the United States of America over it…when there was nothing impeachable in it.

And now, that’s failed.

I have no idea what the arrogant anti-American cowards will attempt next.

However, I do know what must be done in ten months from now.

President Trump MUST be reelected and the Far Left Democrats in the House of Representatives MUST be voted out of office.

That is the only way to ensure that this effort to overturn the will of the American People will be stopped.

The tyranny of the minority must not be allowed to ruin the greatest country on the face of the Earth because of their love for a political philosophy which failed in every country in which it is tried.

God bless America.

“The Art of the Deal”: Closing Arguments Monday, SOTU Tuesday, Acquittal Wednesday


“One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitably follow. There are people—I categorize them as life’s losers—who get their sense of accomplishment and achievement from trying to stop others. As far as I’m concerned, if they had any real ability they wouldn’t be fighting me, they’d be doing something constructive themselves.” – Donald J. Trump, “The Art of the Deal” reports that

Republicans in the Senate secured enough votes Friday evening to reject Democratic efforts to extend the impeachment trial of President Trump and call new witnesses, paving the way for his widely expected acquittal next week on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said late Friday he expects to “conclude the trial in the coming days” as the Senate approved the framework to continue the trial on Monday, with a final up-or-down vote on Wednesday.

After hours of debate during the day on Friday, the Senate voted 51-49 to block a Democratic motion to call new witnesses. The vote came after vehement demands from Democrats to call former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about the Trump-Ukraine saga. Two Republicans — Utah Sen. Mitt Romney and Maine Sen. Susan Collins — voted with Democrats.

“A majority of the U.S. Senate has determined that the numerous witnesses and 28,000-plus pages of documents already in evidence are sufficient to judge the House Managers’ accusations and end this impeachment trial,” McConnell said after the vote.

Democrats decried the failure of the motion.

“America will remember this day, unfortunately, where the Senate did not live up to its responsibilities, where the Senate turned away from truth and went along with a sham trial,” said Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Later on Friday evening, Senate Republicans voted down four amendments offered by Democrats to call Bolton and White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, among others. Chief Justice Roberts told Schumer before that vote series that he would not break ties in the Senate, after Democrats in recent days raised the possibility Roberts could possibly tip the scales for them during votes on amendments.

“I think it would be inappropriate for me, an unelected official from a different branch of government, to assert the power to change that result so that the motion would succeed,” Roberts told Schumer.

The vote on witnesses came as Trump was flying to Florida. A senior administration official aboard Air Force One said that the reaction to the Senate vote was “calm, but pleased.”

“Nothing like applause or cheering, but just a recognition that things are clearly going in the right direction,” the official said.

There will be no trial action over the weekend. The trial will resume Monday with closing arguments by the impeachment managers and defense counsel. Senators will have the opportunity to make speeches on Monday and Tuesday.

The final vote will come the same week as Iowa’s caucuses on Monday and the State of the Union address on Tuesday. A senior congressional source told Fox News that there has been no discussion about postponing the speech, as advance teams have been crawling all over the Capitol in preparation for Tuesday’s address.

Earlier Friday, it became apparent that Republicans had the votes to shut down any new witnesses from testifying in the trial, with Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, announcing they wouldn’t defect.

After the vote on witnesses, Trump drew attention to the number of witnesses during the House’s impeachment proceedings: “Democrats = 17 Witnesses. Republicans = 0 Witnesses.”

It came out late on Friday night that Senate Leader Mitch McConnell had talked to President Trump, who had given his okay to the timing of the final vote.

And, I can understand why he did: it’s perfect.

During the Closing Arguments on Monday, I have no doubt that Jay Sekulow and the Trump Defense Team will perform as flawlessly as they already have.

They have embarrassed the House Managers time and time again, making them look like a bunch of political hacks obsessed with removing a duly-elected President from office.

Which, of course, is exactly what they are.

After that drubbing on Monday, President Trump will address a Joint Session of Congress and deliver what promises to be a barnburner of a State of the Union Address.

One of my fellow writers at suggested that advertisers forget about the Super Bowl and buy time in the State of the Union instead.

It is going to be that good.

Who, in their right mind, can seriously argue against the accomplishments of President Donald J. Trump?

As one of his Presidential Reelection Campaign slogans says,

Promises Made. Promises Kept.

And, within that resides the very reason for the ongoing coup attempt by the Democrats to remove him from office.

Whoever they choose as their Presidential Candidate does not stand a chance of defeating President Trump this November…and they know it.

But, I digress…

After what is going to be the most matched State of the Union Address in history, the Impeachment Vote will happen at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

And, President Donald J. Trump will be acquitted.

In fact, I would not be surprised at all if some of the Democrats cross over to vote for his acquittal.

Especially, if they live in a Red State and they want to be reelected to the Senate.

In 1999, Biden Argued Against Additional Witnesses in the Senate Impeachment Trial of Clinton…and Schumer Agreed!



“Sleepy Joe” just torpedoed the Democrats’ Sham Impeachment! reports that

In January 1999, then-Sen. Joe Biden argued strongly against the need to depose additional witnesses or seek new evidence in a memo sent to fellow Democrats ahead of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial.

Biden circulated the four-page document, titled “Arguments in Support of a Summary Impeachment Trial,” on Jan. 5, 1999. In his memo, obtained by POLITICO, Biden cited historical precedents from impeachment cases going back to the establishment of the Senate and asserted “The Senate need not hold a ‘full-blown’ trial.

“The Senate may dismiss articles of impeachment without holding a full trial or taking new evidence. Put another way, the Constitution does not impose on the Senate the duty to hold a trial,” Biden wrote at the time.
The Delaware Democrat added later: “In a number of previous impeachment trials, the Senate has reached the judgment that its constitutional role as a sole trier of impeachments does not require it to take new evidence or hear live witness testimony.”

Along with his son Hunter, Biden has become a primary target for Republicans in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. Biden is also a frontrunner in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

Biden’s comments from 1999 are at odds with current Democratic talking points that additional witnesses must be called to get to the bottom of Trump’s actions in the Ukraine saga. Republicans, of course, now oppose witnesses in Trump’s trial and argued strongly for them in Clinton’s.

In 1999, Biden also said senators should take into account the impact drawing out the impeachment proceedings would have on the country.

“In light of the extensive record already compiled, it may be that the benefit of receiving additional evidence or live testimony is not great enough to outweigh the public costs (in terms of national prestige, faith in public institutions, etc.) of such a proceeding,” Biden said. “While a judge may not take such considerations into account, the Senate is uniquely competent to make such a balance.”

Biden and other Clinton allies — including now-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — lost the witness fight during that 1999 trial. The Senate agreed to depose former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with Clinton led to just the second presidential impeachment in history, as well as two other witnesses.

Despite those interviews, Clinton was acquitted by the Senate in February 1999. Clinton’s administration cooperated more with the special counsel, leading to a more voluminous record of evidence in his trial. The Trump White House has refused to make officials available for interviews or key documents to House investigators.

The Biden campaign declined to comment.

As I write today’s post, I have been thinking about what the unbridled arrogance-fueled anger of the Democrat Elite has put this country through over the last three years.

From the very night that average Americans between the coasts elected Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump to be our 45th President of the United States of America, they have been determined to overturn our vote and to somehow remove a Constitutionally-elected president from office.

This morning, God willing, their latest attempt at a coup, and make no mistake, boys and girls, that is exactly what it is. will end with the acquittal of President Trump.

The thing about it is, their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

The Democrats who have divided the nation for the last three years will continue their Quixotic Quest to remove Donald J. Trump on up to the day before the 2020 Presidential Election.

Don’t believe me? Check out this tweet from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi…

The news about Biden’s 1999 document came out last night.

San Fran Nan’s tweet posted earlier in the day.

I wonder what she thought about that?

I’ll bet her dentures dropped into her gin and tonic.

My point is that the last three years have made it imperative to our future as Constitutional Republic to not only reelect President Trump but also to vote the Democrats out of power in the House of Repr3esentives.

That will be the only way that we will be able to move forward as a Sovereign Nation.

Otherwise, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, The Squad, et al, will continue to not only try to remove a  duly-elected president but to govern AGAINST the will of the people whom they have been elected to serve.

And, that would eventually lead to American becoming another “Socialist Paradise”…like Venezuela.
