Senate Votes in a Short Term Extension of the Debt Ceiling as McConnell and Vichy Republicans Give Dems Their Way…Again

59945b35f1a850c22a8b5192

FoxNews.com reports that

Senators voted to approve a short-term increase to the federal debt ceiling on Thursday night, ending a weekslong standoff on Capitol Hill and likely averting a default that could have triggered a recession.

Senate Democrats passed the $480 billion increase by a simple majority vote of 50-48. The vote on the final measure occurred after 11 GOP lawmakers joined Democrats in a vote to invoke cloture, clearing the 60-vote filibuster threshold.

The 11 Republicans who voted to allow the measure to proceed were Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Minority Whip John Thune, John Cornyn, Lisa Murkowski, Shelley Moore Capito, Richard Shelby, Rob Portman, Susan Collins, John Barrasso, Mike Rounds and Roy Blunt.

The bill will now proceed to the House, where lawmakers could consider it by as early as next week. The $480 billion increase is enough to fund the government through at least early December.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and other business leaders had warned of a potential economic catastrophe if Congress did not raise the debt ceiling by Oct. 18 when the U.S. federal government would run out of cash to cover its obligations.

Republicans blocked multiple attempts to raise the debt ceiling in recent days, with GOP leaders arguing the Democrats should use the budget reconciliation process to suspend the borrowing limit without their help. But as the default deadline approached, McConnell offered to drop GOP opposition if Democrats raised the debt limit by a fixed dollar amount, buying Schumer and his allies more time to find a longer-term solution.

Democrats claimed victory after McConnell’s offer went public, with some claiming he had “caved” to political pressure. Some GOP lawmakers accused McConnell of giving up his leverage and capitulating to Democratic demands.

Last night, as I was driving home from work, I was listening to “Hannity” on Sirius XM Channel 114.

Sen. Lindsey Graham was on with Sean, and you could tell that he was embarrassed by McConnell’s spineless actions, even though he was trying to maintain the “good fellow well met” B.S. that the Republican Elite are famous for.

Hannity was not buying it and told Graham so.

Hannity said that the Republicans are acting just like they did before Trump came along.

He was right.

The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

That sound was the sound of the sphincters of all the “Keepers of the Washington Status Quo” slamming shut in unison.

You see, boys and girls, the Vichy Republicans in Washington had made a lot of money being “buds” (i.e. servants) with the Democrats.

Of course, they never won Presidential Elections, but, why should they care?

They were getting filthy rich from all of the stock tips and other perks which came from “reaching across the aisle”.

They knew that Trump was going to change all of that.

He was not coming to Washington to make money. In fact, he was not even going to take a salary.

He could not be bought.

And, by the way, that is just one of the reasons that Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Never Trumpers among the Republican Elite hate our Former President so much.

He refused to take their money and play their games.

He would rather hold a MAGA Rally and speak directly to thousands of average Americans, that to attend some political soiree full of the Washington Elite.

As shown by the polls which are showing that Trump is not only leading other prospective Republican candidates but also crushing Biden in a possible 2024 Presidential Race, the American People have had enough of the tone-deaf spineless Vichy Republicans and have definitely had enough of #DementiaJoe.

They want someone who will listen to and stand up for them.

Hence, the results of all of the polls on this subject.

That is why Sen. Mitch McConnell was so upset after Trump was acquitted in the last Shampeachment.

The Republican Elite know that these polls are true.

And, they are afraid of the “Deplorables” (me and you).

And, after yesterday’s spineless move, they have a right to be.

Kinzinger Compares Republican Party to the Titanic for Upcoming Vote to Take Leadership Position Away From Vichy Republican Liz Cheney

 

TheHill.com reports that

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) on Sunday compared the Republican Party to the Titanic amid an internal battle over Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and the push to oust her from her leadership position.

When asked about the intraparty conflict by host John Dickerson on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Kinzinger said the GOP is “in the middle of this slow sink.”

“Right now, it’s basically the Titanic. We’re like, you know, in the middle of this slow sink. We have a band playing on the deck telling everybody it’s fine. And meanwhile, as I’ve said, you know, Donald Trump’s running around trying to find women’s clothing and get on the first lifeboat,” Kinzger said.

“And I think there’s a few of us that are just saying, ‘Guys, this is not good,’ not just for the future of the party, but this is not good for the future of this country,” he added.

Kinzinger also zeroed in on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) comments regarding former President Trump’s role in the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, adding that Cheney has been consistent.

“Liz Cheney is saying exactly what Kevin McCarthy said the day of the insurrection. She’s just consistently been saying it. And a few weeks later, Kevin McCarthy changed to attacking other people,” Kinzinger said.

He added that the Republican Party needs to have “an internal look and a full accounting as to what led to Jan. 6.”

Kinzinger, one of the 10 GOP House members to vote to impeach Trump on a charge of inciting an insurrection, voiced his support last week for Cheney, who also voted to impeach Trump in January.

The ignorance of the Never-Trumper Vichy Republicans continues to both amaze me and make me sick to my stomach.

What sort of bubble-living arrogance does one have to possess to believe that your Political Party would be better off to remain servants to the Opposition Party than to take back the Presidency and both Houses of Congress by giving the American People the common sense leadership that they want out of Washington?

According to a Suffolk University-USA Today Poll taken in February, Republicans would leave the GOP to follow former President Donald Trump to a third party, by a near 2-to-1 margin.

The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Vichy Republican Liz Cheney Writes Op Ed for WaPo Urging Republicans to “Steer Away From the Dangerous and Anti-Democratic Trump Cult of Personality”

Image

Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership. We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator! – From the Desk of Donald J. Trump, 5/5/21

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) wrote that the Republican Party is at a “turning point” and must decide “whether we will join Trump’s crusade to delegitimize and undo the legal outcome of the 2020 election, with all the consequences that might have.”

Cheney offered her commentary in an op-ed for the Washington Post, published Wednesday.

“We Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles, and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality,” Cheney wrote.

With her House leadership role as GOP conference chair in jeopardy, Cheney writes that Trump’s language about the 2020 election “provoked violence on January 6.” Trump, who was banned from social media platforms, recently launched his own method of communicating with his supporters. There, he wrote, “the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!”

“While embracing or ignoring Trump’s statements might seem attractive to some for fundraising and political purposes, that approach will do profound long-term damage to our party and our country,” Cheney wrote. “Trump has never expressed remorse or regret for the attack of Jan. 6 and now suggests that our elections, and our legal and constitutional system, cannot be trusted to do the will of the people.”

This is immensely harmful, especially as we now compete on the world stage against Communist China and its claims that democracy is a failed system,” she continued.

Cheney also addressed recent violence from groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa, but noted those are a “different problem with a different solution.”

This woman has lost her RINO mind.

Donald J. Trump did more in three years to enrich the pocketbooks of America’s Middle Class and to raise the employment levels of Black and Hispanic Americans than any American President before him.

The reason that Donald J. Trump remains the overwhelming choice of Republicans to run in the 2024 Presidential Election is because he actually has a spine.

He is unafraid to place American and Americans First.

He is not answerable to any lobbyist or any other country.

He is also NOT responsible for what happened on January 6th. It was preplanned before he ever gave his speech that day.

And before everything is said and done, it believe that the fact that Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi were in on the “insurrection in order to damage Trump.

We still do not know the name of the officer who shot and killed unarmed Ashli Babbitt.

Liz Cheney is a nothing but a Democrat but-kissing Warhawk Swamp Creature who lives is the Washington D.C. Country Club along with the other RINOs.

Like the rest of the Vichy Republicans, Liz Cheney thinks more of her “colleagues across the aisle” than she does of actual Conservative Republicans, both in Congress and here in America’s Heartland, where we cast our 2016 Vote for Donald J. Trump.

Vichy Republicans, like Liz Cheney, need to be purged from the Republican Party in 2022 and again in 2024, before their spineless acquiescence allows the Democrats to turn America into just another Marxist Nation.

Boehner Goes on Book Tour, Attacks Cruz in Book and on Tour…Cruz Verbally Eviscerates Cryin’ John in Response

Image

“Please don’t cry.” – Sen. Ted Cruz to Former Speaker of the House John Boehner

FoxNews.com reports that

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz doubled down on his response to former House Speaker John Boehner after he told the Texas Republican to “go f**k yourself” in a leaked audio recording.

“I think he was probably recording at nine or ten in the morning so obviously he had too much wine that day already,” Cruz told the Daily Caller on Saturday. “This guy is a little unhinged.”

Cruz on Friday mockingly tweeted that he wears Boehner’s “drunken, bloviated scorn” proudly alongside a clip from an upcoming CBS News interview with Boehner in which he calls Cruz a “jerk” and accuses him of “making a lot of noise” but not being especially productive in Congress.

“The Swamp is unhappy,” Cruz tweeted. “I wear with pride his drunken, bloviated scorn. Please don’t cry,” the lawmaker joked, referencing Boehner’s reputation for appearing publicly emotional at various points throughout his career.

The ex-speaker has taken several shots at Cruz, including while recording his audiobook when he reportedly told Cruz to “f—” himself in several off-script moments.

In the CBS interview, Boehner says he doesn’t like to “beat anyone up” but he’d make an exception for Cruz.

“Perfect symbol, you know, of getting elected, making a lot of noise, draw a lot of attention to yourself, raise a lot of money, which means you’re gonna go make more noise, raise more money,” Boehner told CBS of how he views Cruz’s political career.

Boehner, an Ohio Republican who served as House speaker from 2011-2015, has been making the interview rounds promoting his book, “On The House: A Washington Memoir,” which comes out next week. Boehner represented Ohio’s 8th Congressional District from 1991-2015.

Cruz made a joke of it at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Florida in February, saying, “John Boehner made some news. He suggested that I do something that was anatomically impossible. To which my response was, ‘Who’s John Boehner?'” according to The Hill.

Cruz on Saturday noted that the “lead insult on the back on the back of the book is a different insult he directed at me.”

He seems to have a bit of an obsession,” Cruz said.

Asked whether he planned to write a book about Boehner in response, Cruz said plainly, “I don’t anticipate writing a fortune cookie about him.

Here is some information you may not have known about the Former Speaker of the House, courtesy of sourcewatch.org, from a blog I wrote in March of 2013

In 1981 Boehner served on the board of trustees of Union Township, Butler County, Ohio. In 1984, he served as president of the township board of trustees.

Boehner served as a Ohio state representative from 1985 to 1990. In 1990, when U.S. Rep. Donald “Buz” Lukens (R-Ohio) was caught in a sex scandal involving a minor, Boehner challenged Lukens in the Republican primary and defeated the incumbent, while also upsetting the district’s former representative, Tom Kindness, who Boehner declared had abandoned his district to become a lobbyist. Boehner went on to victory in the 1990 general election and began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives the 102nd Congress.

He was a member of the Gang of Seven, a group of seven freshmen Republicans who assailed the Democratic leadership with accusations of corruption and arrogance over the misuse of the House Bank. According to a 1992 San Francisco Chronicle article the Gang “set the match to the bank scandal that has now engulfed the House, blackened its leadership and sparked a ‘spontaneous political combustion’ that many analysts say will fuel a record turnover in Congress.” (San Francisco Chronicle, 3/30/02)

Boehner told the Cleveland Plain Dealer: “I came as a reformer. But when people in charge don’t want to reform – the only way…is revolution.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer, 2/15/93)

The banking scandal involved 355 members, Democrats and Republicans, writing 8,331 overdrafts to the bank. The Gang pounced on the issue and forced the Democrats into a corner and eventually led to the tidal wave Republican Revolution of 1994.

Boehner came to Congress as one of the most pro-business, anti-government members in 1990. He advocated a flat tax and abolition of whole government agencies including the Department of Education and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Boehner quickly rose to the fourth highest position in the Republican leadership – Republican Conference Chairman – after chairing Newt Gingrich’s 1994 run for the Minority Leader post.

Boehner was on of the principal architects of the Contract With America. He also championed the 1996 Freedom to Farm Act.

When Newt Gingrich resigned his post as Speaker in the wake of the GOPs loss of seats in the 1998 election Boehner’s leadership post was challenged by J.C. Watts, the only black Republican congressman. Boehner lost to Watts 121-93.

…Boehner was elected House Majority Leader on February 2, 2006, following Tom DeLay’s departure because of a criminal indictment.

…According to the Washington Post “From illegal immigration to sanctions on China to an overhaul of the pension system, Boehner, as chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, took ardently pro-business positions that were contrary to those of many in his party. Religious conservatives — examining his voting record — see him as a policymaker driven by small-government economic concerns, not theirs….. [He opposes] a tough illegal immigration bill that passed in December [2005] with overwhelming Republican support over Boehner’s opposition. One provision in the bill would mandate that every business verify the legality of every employee through the federal terrorism watch list and a database of Social Security numbers. For the bill’s authors, the measure is central to choking off illegal immigrants’ employment opportunities. To business groups and Boehner, it is unworkable.” Feb 12, 2006

The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

Moderate Republicans , like Cryin’ John Boehner, have been a barrier to Republican victory for as long as I can remember. Like Quakers, Establishment Republicans seem to believe that passive resistance and reaching out to their sworn enemies, friends, is the way to defeat those who oppose you.

When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

That sound was the sound of the sphincters of all the “Keepers of the Washington Status Quo” slamming shut in unison.

You see, boys and girls, the Vichy Republicans in Washington had made a lot of money being “buds” (i.e. servants) with the Democrats.

Of course, they never won Presidential Elections, but, why should they care?

They were getting filthy rich from all of the stock tips and other perks which came from “reaching across the aisle”.

They knew that Trump was going to change all of that.

He was not coming to Washington to make money. In fact, he was not even going to take a salary.

He could not be bought.

And, by the way, that is just one of the reasons that Cryin’ John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Never-Trumpers among the Republican Elite hate our Former President so much.

He refused to take their money and play their games.

He would rather hold a MAGA Rally and speak directly to thousands of average Americans, that to attend some political soiree full of the Washington Elite.

Cruz is right, Boehner is a long-time member of the Washington Political Elite, better known as The Swamp.

All of those Republicans, who are still on Capitol Hill, and who worked against Former President Trump during his tenure in office and who still stand against him to this day, needed to be voted out of office in the 2020 Midterm Elections.

Perhaps then, American Voters will have placed in office Republican Representatives and Senators who actually want to work for and serve US…instead of themselves.

Trump Delivers Big at CPAC 2021: “We Have the Republican Party”

Image

Newsmax.com reports that

Putting to rest talk of a third party to break off from the GOP, former President Donald Trump said there will be only the Republican Party united, all the way.

“I want you to know that I’m going to continue to fight right by your side,” Trump said Sunday as the headliner at the American Conservative Union Conference on Sunday in Orlando, Florida. “We will do what we’ve done right from the beginning, which is to win.

“We’re not starting new parties. You know, they kept saying, ‘he’s going to start a brand new party.’ We have the Republican party. It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before. I am not starting a new party. That was fake news. Fake news.”

Trump vowed at CPAC the party will fight to defeat “radical Democrats” in future elections.

“Brave Republicans in this room will be at the heart of the effort to oppose the radical Democrats, the fake news media, and their toxic cancel culture: Something new to our ears – cancel culture,” Trump said early in his speech.

“No, that would be brilliant: Let’s start a new party; let’s divide our vote so that you could never win. No we’re not interested in that.”

The speech to CPAC was Trump’s first public appearance since he left office 39 days ago. Since then, he’s kept an uncharacteristically low profile, hampered in large part because he is banned from Twitter and Facebook in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol that led to his impeachment and subsequent acquittal in the Senate.

In emailed statements and a handful of interviews to friendly outlets, he’s blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, eulogized talk show host Rush Limbaugh and made unfounded allegations of election fraud — all while avoiding questions about his future in the party.

His remarks ratified the consensus of the conference that this is not a conservative movement wallowing in its loss to Democrat Joe Biden as much as it’s a government-in-waiting, counting down the three years and 11 months for Trump to “Make America Great Again” again.

In a straw poll, 97% of attendees approved of his leadership of the party, 70% want him to run again and 55% said he was their preferred candidate in 2024. (The other top contenders were Trump loyalists: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, followed by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and Donald Trump Jr.)

Trump’s rousing reception at the most important conservative gathering on the calendar highlights just how much Trump has transformed the movement in just five years.

In 2016, Trump abruptly canceled his appearance at the event amid plans for a walkout from conservatives who questioned his commitment to the cause and demands that he answer questions from a moderator like the other candidates.

On Sunday, he was the closer of a three-day festival of Trump-flavored conservatism that bore his undeniable imprint.

The conference included at least seven panels credulously discussing Trump’s claims of a stolen 2020 election despite dozens of court rulings finding otherwise.

Major figures from the Trump cabinet — at least, those still loyal to the former president — were given speaking slots: Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell and Budget Director Russ Vought.

Prominent conservatives who have left Trump’s orbit were nowhere to be found, including McConnell and his wife, former Trump Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney. Even Trump’s old running mate, former Vice President Mike Pence, declined an invitation.

For those of you who missed it, you missed a stemwinder of a speech.

Trump looked well and rested and ready to faced the challenges which lay ahead.

Trump, as he warned during yesterday’s speech, will support Republican Candidates who will be running in the Midterm Elections in 2022 against those Vichy Republicans who recently voted to impeach him at the conclusion of Shampeachment 2.

So, to all of my fellow amateur political pundits:

Yes, boys and girls. Trump is going to be a Kingmaker.

And, then, Trump will, once again, run for the office of President of the United States of America in 2024.

And, as of today, there is no one on either side who will be able to beat him.

Why?

Just as Trump did, with his refusal early in his first Presidential Campaign to “act more presidential”, he continues to take his message directly to the American People.

Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and then his “MAGA Rallies”, Trump showed himself to be “A Man of the People”.

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As the polls show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Democrat Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as the Democrats did in their National Covention and, quite frankly, do every day.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

When he speaks, Donald J. Trump makes average Americans feel good about themselves and their role in determining the future of our country.

They hear words of hope and encouragement from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

And, that, fellow Americans, is why President Trump will be elected President once again in 2024.

Another Poll Shows That a Majority of Republicans Would Follow Trump to Form a New Party…While the Republican Elite Stay Clueless


See the source image

Newsmax.com reports that

Former President Donald Trump does not just lead the Republican Party still, he ostensibly owns it, according to the latest Suffolk University-USA Today poll released Sunday.

By a near 2-to-1 margin, Republicans would leave the GOP to follow former President Donald Trump to a third party.

“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,” Brandon Keidl, 27, Republican small-business owner from Milwaukee told USA Today after being polled. “But then you have establishment Republicans who just agree with establishment Democrats and everything, and they don’t ever push back.”

The poll found 46% of Republicans would follow Trump to a new party, compared to just 26% that would stay with the GOP and remainder undecided. A majority of Trump voters (54%) are more loyal to the candidate than the party (34%).

Just 19% believed Republicans should turn away from Trump and remain loyal to establishment Republicans.

There is also “a seismic shift in the landscape of trusted news sources for conservatives in the country,” according to Suffolk University Political Research Center Director David Paleologos.

Fox News had polled at 58% of their most trusted news source in October 2016, but that figure dropped to just 34%. Newsmax is now most trusted by 17%, followed by American News (OANN) at 9%.

The Suffolk-USA Today poll surveyed 1,000 Trump voters last Monday through Friday with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

The results of the above poll confirms what I have been saying for a long time now.

The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

That sound was the sound of the sphincters of all the “Keepers of the Washington Status Quo” slamming shut in unison.

You see, boys and girls, the Vichy Republicans in Washington had made a lot of money being “buds” (i.e. servants) with the Democrats.

Of course, they never won Presidential Elections, but, why should they care?

They were getting filthy rich from all of the stock tips and other perks which came from “reaching across the aisle”.

They knew that Trump was going to change all of that.

He was not coming to Washington to make money. In fact, he was not even going to take a salary.

He could not be bought.

And, by the way, that is just one of the reasons that Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Never Trumpers among the Republican Elite hate our Former President so much.

He refused to take their money and play their games.

He would rather hold a MAGA Rally and speak directly to thousands of average Americans, that to attend some political soiree full of the Washington Elite.

As shown by the above polls and others which have had similar results, the American People have had enough of the tone-deaf spineless Vichy Republicans.

They want someone who will listen to and stand up for them.

Hence, the results of all of the polls on this subject.

That is why Sen. Mitch McConnell was so upset after Trump was acquitted in the last Shampeachment.

The Republican Elite know that these polls are true.

And, they are afraid of the “Deplorables” (me and you).

Trump Replies After McConnell Blames Him for Capitol Hill Riot After Acquittal: “Mitch is a Dour, Sullen, and Unsmiling Political Hack”

Image

Newsmax.com reports that

In the most caustic sign yet of deepening GOP divisions, former President Donald Trump blistered Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as a “political hack” on Tuesday, days after the Senate’s top Republican denounced him as the inciter of U.S. Capitol attack.

“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm,” Trump said in a statement released by his political action committee.

He went on to write: “Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again.”

A McConnell spokesperson did not immediately return requests for comment.

The deeply personal attack follows McConnell’s speech over over the weekend saying Trump was responsible for the deadly insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6. But McConnell said that only after he joined other Republicans in voting against the former president’s conviction during a Senate impeachment trial that accused Trump of inciting the mob.

“There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” McConnell said Saturday, after Trump, the only president to be impeached twice, was acquitted on a 57-43 vote. “The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president.”

McConnell said he voted to acquit Trump because the Senate has no jurisdiction over an ex-president — even though he had rejected a push from Democrats to start the trial when Trump was still in office. The House impeached Trump a week before he left office.

McConnell had remained loyal to Trump during nearly all of his four years in office, when the pair were the two most powerful members of the Republican Party. But, after Trump spent months making claims election fraud cost him the November election against Democrat Joe Biden, McConnell said overturning the vote because of objections from the losing side would see American democracy enter “a death spiral.”

Republican officials in battleground states including Georgia and Arizona have also said the election was fair. Trump’s accusations of election fraud were rejected by judges at all levels of the judiciary, including those appointed by Trump himself.

The former president’s statement promises to further fuel an intraparty struggle.

Some, like the seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump during the second impeachment trial, have sought to distance the party from the former president. But others have remained loyal in hopes of not alienating Trump supporters during future elections.

In his statement, Trump criticized McConnell for failing to do more to back his unfounded claims of election fraud. He also said McConnell “begged” for his endorsement in the senator’s home state of Kentucky while running for reelection last year — and suggested he would work to defeat McConnell and his Republican allies, saying he planned to “back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great.”

“This is a big moment for our country,” Trump wrote, “and we cannot let it pass by using third rate ‘leaders’ to dictate our future.”

Here is the hard truth of the above article: Average Americans had been holding their noses while voting for the Republican party for some time.

That is, until Donald J. Trump came along.

The Presidential Campaign of Donald J. Trump was something different that your average Republican’s campaign for President.

It was a Populist Movement.

Dictionary.com defines “populism” as

1. the political philosophy of the People’s party.
2. (lowercase) any of various, often antiestablishment or anti-intellectual political movements or philosophies that offer unorthodox solutions or policies and appeal to the common person rather than according with traditional party or partisan ideologies.
3. (lowercase) grass-roots democracy; working-class activism; egalitarianism.
4. (lowercase) representation or extolling of the common person, the working class, the underdog, etc.:populism in the arts.

That word first reappeared in the American Lexicon, when Sarah Palin almost dragged John McCain’s RINO Rear across the Finish Line, in the Presidential Election of 2008.

The Grassroots Movement, which began back then, led us to a seminal moment in American Politics.

The American People spoke in 2016 and are still speaking, loud and clear.

Donald J. Trump was a “Citizen Statesman”, such as our Founding Fathers envisioned.

A Presidential Candidate has to build a coalition, in order to win the Presidency.

Ronald Reagan, and, again, I am not comparing Trump to Reagan, figured out in 1980, that, in order to win the presidency, you had to bypass the Republican Establishment and go directly to the American People.

That is exactly what Donald J. Trump did.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, broke that fact down for us during his program on February 10, 2016…

This is what the Republican Party’s been telling us they need to win.  I’ve had ’em come to my office.  I’ve told you.  I’ve had Rand Paul here, Mitt Romney’s here.  One thing they’ve all said in common is that Republican Party can’t win with Republican votes alone anymore.  We have to branch out, we have to reach out.  This is what they were telling me to prepare me for some of the campaign tactics that I was gonna see. That they were gonna have to reach out and immigration was one of the ways of reaching out, supporting amnesty. Well, all along Trump has built that coalition the Republican Party claims to want and they’re out there badgering it and bashing it.  It’s exactly what they claim to want.  They could have had it.  The Republican Party could have had the Trump coalition.  They could have had it at health care.  A majority of Americans opposed Obamacare from the get-go.  The Republican Party could have seriously attempted to form an alliance with the Tea Party and the anti-Obamacare people and been a dominant majority party on that issue alone.  And then on subsequent issues to come down the pike the Republican Party could have formed an alliance with majorities in other areas of opposition, and they didn’t. 

Donald Trump has the exact coalition the Republican Party, to a man, has told me they need to win, that they need to thrive.  And now they’re reduced to bashing it by virtue of bashing Trump.  And now they’re reduced to bashing it by virtue of bashing Cruz.  The two people who are showing the Republican Party all they had to do all these past seven years, but they didn’t.  They purposely, strategically, tactically refused to push back, refused to make a spectacle of stopping Obama, and they have themselves to blame for this predicament. 

People are not gonna donate and donate and vote and vote and hear the right things during campaigns, the promises to stop Obama, to oppose Obamacare, to seriously make an effort to repeal it.  Even if they don’t have the votes to override a veto, the effort, all it would have taken was the effort, all it would have taken was put the onus on Obama, make Obama illustrate that all this is his fingerprints.  No such strategy was ever seen. 
As I gave previously written, Trump is riding the crest of an ever-growing anger over the inaction of Professional Politicians, whom, after being voted into National Office by their constituents back home, have literally bitten the hand that feeds them, tossing Ma and Pa Kettle aside for Big Money Donors and the Political Prestige of “reaching across the aisle”, i.e.. “selling out”.

Now, in 2021, members of that same political party, including its Political Leader, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, seem determined to commit political seppuku by shunning Former President Donald J. Trump.

Regarding those who continue to insist that they are on the side of average Americans and are working at banishing Trump “for the good of the Republican Party”…

Former President Trump showed y’all how to win and a lot of you “Establishment Republicans” furthered your political career by riding his coat tails to positions of power on Capitol Hill.

Y’all want to go back to your political strategy of of reaching across the aisle (i.e. sucking up) to the Democrats and allowing them to pass whatever cockamamie laws they want to while they raises our taxes and the amount we pay for gas to fill up our cars so that we can go to work and provide for our families.

That is how we got stuck with Former President Barack Hussein Obama, aka “Petulant President Pantywaist”.

If the Republican Establishment keeps mooning average Americans and showcasing their Spines of Jello, instead of supporting the wishes of those who sent them to Capitol Hill, average Americans are liable to show them what they think of them by starting a new party behind Donald J. Trump.

However, I am beginning to believe that the Vichy Republicans. for all of their bluster, could care less.

As it has  proven, without a doubt in the past, the Republican Establishment’s arrogance will be their undoing.

After all…

Actions (and Inactions) have consequences.

In summation, the American people are tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, remains a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who became a wonderful public servant.

Does Donald J. Trump need to “tone it down”, in terms of his fight against those who would preserve the Washingtonian Status Quo?

Only if he wants to sound like a Professional Politician.

And, we Americans have had our fill of them.

Shampeachment 2: TDS Boogaloo…Send in the Clowns!

 

See the source image

Newsmax.com reports that

The Senate leaders have reached a deal with House impeachment managers on the rules for the second trial of former President Donald Trump.

“All parties have agreed to a structure that will ensure a fair and honest impeachment trial,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced Monday on the Senate floor. “The structure we have agreed to is eminently fair. It will allow for the trial to achieve its purpose: truth and accountability.”

There will be a debate and a subsequent simple majority vote Tuesday on the constitutionality of the impeachment trial of a former president. The Democrats have more votes in the Senate if it breaks 50-50, since Vice President Kamala Harris would cast the deciding vote. Late last month, 5 anti-Trump Republicans voted with Democrats to proceed to a Senate trial.

Then, Wednesday, there will be 16 hours of debate for both the House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense lawyers. Trump has declined an invitation to testify on his behalf.

After the senator jurors’ question period, there will be a debate and a vote on whether to call witnesses, as requested by the House impeachment managers. No witnesses were called during the passing of the House article of impeachment of “incitement of an insurrection.”

“There must, there must be truth and accountability if we are going to move forward, heal, and bring our country together once again,” Schumer said. “Sweeping something as momentous as this under the rug brings no healing whatsoever.

“A president cannot simply resign to avoid accountability for an impeachable offense, nor can they escape judgment by waiting until their final few weeks in office to betray our country.”

“The impeachment powers,” he added, “cannot be defeated by a president who decides to run.”

The trial will recess by Friday 5 p.m. ET through Saturday at the request of defense attorney David Schoen, who observes the Jewish Sabbath, per the report.

Whatever.

It is still unconstitutional!!!

Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Monday that former President Donald Trump’s lawyers have three fundamental principles to argue in his impeachment trial when it starts on Tuesday, not the least of which is that the Senate can’t violate the Constitution to convict him.

Dershowitz, who defended Trump in his first impeachment trial a year ago, said Trump’s attorneys should argue several points against the charge of “incitement to insurrection.” The charge by the House refers to when he spoke to supporters on Jan. 6 in Washington before some breached the U.S. Capitol. Some lawmakers allege he egged them on in his remarks before the riot, in which there were five fatalities.

Point 1 to Dershowitz: The Senate has no jurisdiction over a former president. If it did, it could convict any former officeholder — think former President Bill Clinton, for instance — without a statute of limitations.

Secondly, Trump’s speech to supporters in Washington, in which he reiterated his long-standing claim that he lost the Nov. 3 election due to massive election fraud, was constitutionally protected.

He said the Trump team should argue that Congress cannot deny Trump the freedom of speech by saying it doesn’t apply to him.

“The Senate can’t violate the First Amendment in it’s impeachment,” Dershowitz said on “Spicer & Co.” “The House managers said the First Amendment isn’t applicable. Impeachment stands on its own.”

reeheesn the clow, send in siping circusarticipating in this three-cpectablet rt In my 62 years of life, I have never seen a President relentlessly attacked by the opposition party the way the President Donald J. Trump was.

Heck, they started before he and Melania came down that escalator to announce his candidacy.

That is how much they feared the man.

Even the Chinese releasing a worldwide plague in the form of a coronavirus couldn’t stop him. It merely slowed him down.

The economy was beginning to come back before the election.

If you consider the enormity of the political attacks which President Trump has had to endure over the last 5 years, it is simply amazing that he kept his hand on the captain’s wheel of the Ship of State.

Even before he was a candidate, the Deep State, under the orders of President Barack Hussein Obama was spying on him.

He had to battle a snobbish Republican Elite to even make it to the primaries when he emerged victorious over a group of professional politicians.

He then had to battle the Vichy Republicans, the Democrats, and the Main Stream Media, who all would have rather the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton had won the Presidency.

Then, once he took the Oath of Office, all bets were off, as the Republican-led House and Speaker Paul Ryan , along with Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Vichy Republicans in the Senate fought him every step of the way,, including appointing a Special Counselor to investigate “Russian Collusion”, which was a false charge from the get-go, which eventually failed to prove anything.

Then, after the Democrats took back the House in 2018, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff, and the rest of the cast of idiots attempted a sham impeachment based on a “perfect” phone call to the President of Ukraine.

And, after all of that, he had to face was a rigged election, which polls show that 76% of Americans admit was rigged.

Now, the Democrats and Vichy Republicans have come up with the ultimate plan: an unconstitutional impeachment of a private citizen, accusing him of inciting violence in our nation’s capital.

If found guilty in their kangaroo court, Donald J. Trump will never be able to run from President again.

There are several problems with this ultimate plan drawn up by “the smartest people in the room”.

First, evidence continues to come out that this attack was preplanned. President Trump had nothing to do with it.

Second, he called upon the crowd to “peaceful protest”. While he was doing that, the preplanned attacked was already in progress.

Finally, you cannot, as Professor Dershowitz pointed out, convict a private citizen for exercising their First Amendment Right to Free Speech.

If you could, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrats who have threated Trump and his supporters over the last 4five years, would already be in jail.

Today will be the start of a sorry spectacle.

All those who participated in all of the illegal and Unconstitutional acts perpetrated against President Trump in the last five years and are participating in this three ring circus should be ashamed.

However, they are all professional bureaucrats and politicians.

They have no shame.

So…send in the clowns.

Too late…they’re here.

Antifa Infiltrates Pro-Trump Washington Event, Leads Storming of the Capitol, Republicans Betray Voters, Biden Certified (In More Ways Than One)

Yesterday, while I was at work, I was keeping up with the activities in Washington, D.C, on my cellphone.

I listened to President Trump as he laid out the facts and statistics detailing the biggest, most blatant case of Election Fraud in American History.

I also heard him say that he was going to lead the crowd over to the Capitol Building where there would be a “peaceful Protest” outside as a Joint Session of Congress, led by Mike Pence, would work towards the business of “certifying” a demented old man who could not get 200 people to come to his Campaign Rallies as the President of the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth.

The “Small, Still Voice” inside of me told me that this was a powder keg waiting on a match.

Now, average Conservative Americans, in normal circumstances, would not storm the Capitol Building. 

However, they came to Washington already madder than AOC with her lips glued together.

The President’s impassioned speech, while it reinforced what the crowd already knew, was NOT responsible.

Two things lit the fuse which caused the riot:

  1. Vice-President Mike Pence appeared to turn his back on President Trump.
  2. There were agitators dispersed throughout the crowd from Antifa, who had received a Police Escort into the city earlier this week.

As the picture above shows, these guys did not blend in very well.

So, the same Democrats who were supporting the Fascist rioters from Antifa and BLM as they burned buildings, defaced national monuments, and harassed and beat up innocent Americans, are condemning a violent reaction which they themselves were responsible for.

Please note that I am NOT approving of disrespecting the Halls of Congress.

I AM approving of Americans fighting back against the graft, corruption, and fraud which has placed a doddering, senile old man and those pulling his strings in charge of the United States of America.

As I am writing this, Lindsey Graham just showed his true colors by declaring “I am off this train”.

That’s okay, Miss Lindsey, average Americans living here in the Heartland are done with you, too and the rest of the spineless, back-stabbing Vichy Republicans.

And, Vice-President Benedict Arnold Pence, spend your 30 pieces of silver wisely…you will be unemployed before too long.

Why All These Americans are in Washington, DC Today and What Today is All About

To say that today is a seminal moment in American History is probably the biggest understatement that I have ever made.

I was thinking about could possibly add to the mid-boggling situation which our Constitutional Republic finds itself it.

And then I realized: the situation writes itself.

Per Breitbart.com

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave a speech on the House floor shortly after she was re-elected as House Speaker where she said that members of Congress “need God’s blessing.”

“In all that we do, let us be For The People – recognizing the beautiful diversity of America so that no one is left out and no one is left behind,” she said.

“To do so, we need God’s blessing,” Pelosi continued. “May God bless all of us. God bless all of you. God bless our men and women in uniform and their families — their servicemembers and their families — our veterans and may God bless America,” she said.

Pelosi is not the only Democrat to invoke God’s blessing on the House floor for political purposes.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) concluded his opening prayer for the 117th Congress with the phrase “Amen and Awomen” on Sunday.

Cleaver, a pastor at a Methodist church in Missouri, prayed to “The God known by many names and faith,” before ending his prayer with “Amen and Awomen,” appearing to genderize the term “Amen” at the conclusion of a prayer.

The word “Amen” actually has nothing to do with gender, but is rather a term derived from Hebrew or Greek that means “truly” or “is so.”

So, what does that Blasphemous moment have to do with today?

EVERYTHING.

As I write this article, thousands of average Americans are gathering in our nation’s capital to support a Citizen Statesman whom they have dubbed “The People’s President”.

The reason for that is simple: those on Capitol Hill who American Voters keep sending up there to speak for THEM stopped doing that long ago.

The Professional Politicians in Washington have purposefully become tone-deaf and utterly removed as to the payers, hopes, and dreams of average Americans, which are born out being raised in families who believed in America’s Traditional System of Faith and Values which have made this country both great and admired around the world.

Instead, the Washington Elite have embraced a hedonistic lifestyle, surrounded by special interest groups and lobbyists, who as Rep. Swalwell and Joe and Hunter Biden found out, include our representatives of our enemies, Red China.

The Americans who have come from all over the country to be in Washington today to support President Trump are not there to worship him.

They are there because their love our country and they do not want to see it become another Venezuela.

These men and women actually care more about preserving our Sovereign Nation than those in Washington who are supposed to be working for US and who are instead up there for themselves.

The Far Left Democrats and the Vichy Republicans look down their nose at average Americans because we have sat back and allowed them to run over us for decades.

And then, we elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America and turned the Washington Status Quo on its collective head.

The coming together of the Far Left Democrats and the Vichy Republicans is an act of self-preservation.

They would rather turn America into a Third World “Democratic Socialist” country than to allow a rank outsider like Donald J. Trump to be a successful President.

And, that is why we are witnessing the events of today.

1776 Deja Vu.

Only this time, it is not the British who are coming.

It is the Professional Marxist-leaning Bureaucrats who are already here.
