    From the Washington Post: Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican backed by the Tea Party movement, suggested that the president was misled by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, whom the crowd repeatedly booed. Jan Morgan, a spokeswoman for the Citizens for Trump grass-roots group, said “the president was ill-advised when he made his decision.” And former Alaska governor Sarah Palin accused the swamp — which is what Trump likes to call the Washington establishment — of trying to overpower the president. “The forgotten man and woman in this country, they stood up, and we beat the swamp. But,...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his gang of establishment Republicans implored President Donald Trump to campaign for establishment Republican Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) against conservative frontrunner Roy Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice, because they reportedly are terrified that more grassroots candidates across the country will challenge establishment Republicans if Moore defeats Strange on Tuesday. Moore has led in every poll leading up to Tuesday’s runoff in what has been described as the “first proxy battle” between Trump and his former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who has vowed to support the economic nationalist agenda that got...

    When he was interviewed on "60 Minutes" recently, former White House strategist Steve Bannon cited Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a great enemy of President Trump, even greater than House Speaker Paul Ryan. McConnell's Super PAC and allied interests have relentlessly dumped millions into Alabama to fuel a massive media campaign to smear Judge Roy Moore and prevent him from winning the runoff election next Tuesday. One ad claims Moore does not support President Trump's notion of a wall on the southern border, even though Moore has publicly said he supports President Trump including "the Wall". As we all...

    Rep. Mo Brooks struck back against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Saturday, endorsing former judge Roy Moore over Sen. Luther Strange in the Alabama Senate special election 10 days before Election Day. Brooks, who finished third in round one of the Aug. 15 special GOP primary contest after sustaining million of dollars in political attacks from a super PAC connected to McConnell, made clear that his antipathy toward the Senate majority leader was a motivating factor behind his endorsement of Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

    "It wasn’t perfect, but it was a big win over a good team" If 24 hours ago, I had told you that Alabama would defeat third-ranked Florida State 24-7, how would you feel? Happy? Thrilled? Relieved? Or maybe somewhere within? Then why don’t you feel that way now? Maybe Nick Saban has spoiled us, the Tide fans. Well, it is time to heed the advice that Saban shared with AJ McCarron a few years ago. Paraphrasing: “Calm Down”. Despite the big win over a potential playoff team, some Alabama fans are still wringing their hands and complaining about this and...
