    If you agree like me you are very frustrated with the GOP senators. Say what you want, if this was the Democrats, he would have been confirmed already. Whether you agree with them or not, they stick to their convictions. The GOP wants to bend over backwards to show they are pro-woman when they already are. The Democrats accuse them of these things and they take the bait. IF Kavanaugh is NOT confirmed, we are going to face a wipeout in Nov like we have never seen. They are being played like fiddle and they seem to be the only...

    © Provided by The Hill Multiple siblings of Rep. Paul Gosar are coming out in support of his Democratic opponent, accusing the Arizona Republican of racism. The Phoenix New Times reported that Democratic House candidate David Brill unveiled a series of ads at a fundraiser on Thursday that feature Gosar's siblings denouncing the conservative four-term congressman. Six of Gosar's sblings - Tim, Jennifer, Gaston, Joan, Grace, and David - decry his views on policies such as health care and immigration, adding that their brother's positions have torn the family apart.

    Media bias has real consequences. Ohio’s wealthiest supporter of the Republican party, Leslie Wexner, has withdrawn his support because he was ‘ashamed’ by President Trump’s response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Wexner announced his decision on Friday, just a day after former President Obama gave a speech in Ohio where he attacked Republicans who “try to shield and deflect oversight of [Trump’s] behavior.”A lot of smart people seem to have fallen for the mainstream media's lies about Trump’s comments. NBC News’ coverage of Charlottesville last year was all too typical: “On Tuesday [August 15th, 2017], Trump gave a freewheeling press...

    President Donald Trump will visit Springfield on Friday for a Make America Great Again Rally, his second stop in Springfield in the past year. Trump's 2020 re-election campaign is holding the rally at JQH Arena, 685 S. John Q. Hammons Parkway. Doors open at 4 p.m., and the event begins at 6:30 p.m. People interested in attending can register at donaldjtrump.com.

He went to Springfield and St. Charles last...
  • The one question Republicans need to ask voters to keep Congress

    “Are you better off now than you were two years ago?” Republicans should ask voters this key question during the 2018 midterms. It would shift the debate from the childish and shrill Resistance to the mature and optimistic topic of results. By nearly any measure, Washington’s unified Republican government has improved things for every American since the last election. The economy is roaring, thanks to Republican public policy. Obama’s “You didn’t build that,” anti-business hectoring has been replaced by gratitude. For each new federal regulation, 22 asphyxiating rules have been scrapped. And $1.5 trillion in GOP tax cuts have supplied...

    OK, here’s another one of those occasions when we try to avoid featuring Twitter randos, but some of the things they say just throw so clearly into perspective just how some on the Left actually think and feel that we can’t leave them alone. To jump on this train of thought, you have to go back a day and revisit a tweet from former Secretary of State John Kerry, who for some reason has kept up relations with Iran’s government even though he no longer holds public office. Plus he’s got a book to plug any chance he gets. [snip]...

    A California man was arrested Sunday after allegedly attempting to stab a Republican congressional candidate with a switchblade, according to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office. The man, identified as 35-year-old Farzad Fazeli, reportedly approached Republican candidate Rudy Peters in an aggressive manner and made disparaging, profanity-laced remarks about the GOP and President Trump, according to witness statements. Peters, who is running against incumbent Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, was campaigning at a fall festival in Castro Valley, California. During the incident, Fazeli allegedly pulled out a switchblade knife and attempted to stab Peters, but the knife malfunctioned. Peters then got into...

    Ohio billionaire and longtime Republican donor Les Wexner says he is officially done with the party, and was prompted to leave after former President Barack Obama visited the state. Wexner, the CEO of retail conglomerate L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, announced at a leadership summit in Columbus on Thursday that he “won’t support this nonsense in the Republican Party” anymore, The Columbus Dispatch reported. The announcement, made at a panel discussion, came the same day Obama visited Columbus before heading to a rally in Cleveland to support Democrat Richard Cordray’s run for governor. “I...

    Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress. Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins,...

    A candidate endorsed by the Trump administration has won the Republican nomination for a U.S. House seat in New Hampshire, and he’d be the state’s first black congressman if elected in November. Eddie Edwards, of Dover, won a six-way race in Tuesday’s GOP primary for the 1st Congressional District. Edwards is a Navy veteran who also served as a police chief and as chief enforcement officer for the state liquor commission.

    The study, published in the journal Leadership, suggests that the Republicans viewed Trump as strongly representing what they stand for creating party unity and success in the election. Hillary Clinton may have lost out to Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential elections because the Democrats were too willing to welcome others with differing views into their party, a study has found. The study, published in the journal Leadership, suggests that the Republicans viewed Trump as strongly representing what they stand for creating party unity and success in the election. However, Democrats' greater inclusiveness and willingness to integrate members of...

    As Barack Obama lit into President Trump and his voters Friday in a speech at the University of Illinois, much was made of how unprecedented it was for a predecessor to level such public criticisms of an immediate successor. Two reactions came to mind. First, that tradition may be dead. If there are two presidents fond of touting their accomplishments in stark comparison to the competing party, they are Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Second, I didn’t really mind. The Trump era has ushered in a period of unfettered directness that may carry more pluses than minuses. So with pesky...

Representatives Lee Zeldin (R-NY), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) will ask President Trump to throw down his ace card tomorrow and declassify all the pertinent Russia docs. On Thursday, September 6th, at 1:00 PM ET, top GOP allies of the President will call on Trump to declassify the Russia docs in a press conference, reported Kyle Cheney of Politico.

    President Trump lashed out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a string of tweets on Monday, accusing him of hurting Republican chances in the upcoming midterm elections with a series of Justice Department investigations. “Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department,” Trump tweeted. “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.....” The president apparently was referring to the current investigations into GOP Reps. Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins...

    Billionaire Seahawks owner and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen this year has made his largest-ever foray into congressional politics, donating $100,000 to a group aiming to keep Republicans in control of the U.S. House of Representatives. The June 14 donation, disclosed in mid-July, went to Protect the House, a committee headed by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. It’s the biggest check Allen has ever sent to a federal political candidate or committee, according to a review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

Sir, you have shortchanged & openly neglected your duties by remaining silent since last, December, 2017, when Republican, Senator, John McCain became absent and unable to cast his vote in the U.S. Senate, therefore rendering him incapable of effectively representing the seven million citizens that reside in Arizona. I am urging you to do your duty and responsibility and appoint Ms. Kelli Ward...immediately to fill the remaining length of McCain's term. This charade and cover...

    Two-thirds of Republicans and a third of independents think special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation should be shut down, according to a new poll. In addition, an overwhelming amount of Republicans polled–80 percent–agree with President Trump that it is a “witch hunt.” Furthermore, only a quarter–26 percent–of Republicans polled would find special counsel Robert Mueller’s report credible if it found that any campaign member or associate knew of, encouraged, or helped with Russian interference in the 2016 elections. An overwhelming 71 percent of Republicans said they would not find it credible. The poll, reported by Axios, was conducted by Public...

    The late CEO, Rich Snyder, was an evangelical Christian and supporter of Republican candidates, and current president Lynsi Snyder is also devout. Like cult chain Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out doesn’t make its founders’ Christian values a secret, per se. Customers just might be so focused on their Animal Style burgers that they don’t notice the references to Bible quotes printed on the wrappers. However, it’s not clear that the company’s current leadership is nearly as aligned with the Republicans as that of Chick-fil-A, a company that has publicly come out against LGBT rights. According to campaign finance filings, In-N-Out Burger also donated...
