  • Hot take: If it were up to Trump and Republicans, they’d hang every gay person, just like in Iran

    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]...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — President Trump said Friday night that Republicans will prevail in the midterm elections because Democrats “are not in a position to govern” with lax immigration policies that he said led to the death of Iowa teenager Mollie Tibbetts and others. Speaking to the Ohio state Republican Party’s annual dinner, Mr. Trump predicted, “This November we are going to win really big.” “Today’s Democrats are not just extreme, they are really not in a position to govern,” he said. “They are just not in a position to govern when you look at what they are for — open...

    “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness had to defend himself on Wednesday after he was ripped for urging his fans to be tolerant of other ideas and saying that not all Republicans were evil and racist. Van Ness decided to get political on Twitter following the results of Tuesday’s primary results. “Luckily a lot [of] extreme right people won yesterday, meaning that if we can come up w center left candidates we can take back the house & senate, not to mention many state legislatures. It is so important for the left to not go too left or we are...

    Marxists: The far-Left is taking over the Democratic Party, and what’s more, many of its current elected members and candidates for office are gladly going along. Like in every other country on earth, when the far-Left seeks to take power they do so through violence — not the regular balloting process. They talk about democracy and ‘democratic actions’ but then use intimidation and violence to steal power when they can’t win it in true democratic fashion. Since before Donald Trump was elected violent Left-wing anarchy groups like Antifa began to spring up, and they continue to grow. At nearly every...

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | June 13, 2018 | Mark Z. Barabak
    Mark Sanford blew up his marriage and became a national laughingstock when he sneaked off his job as South Carolina governor for a tryst with his Argentine lover. After he forsook his presidential ambitions and spent time in political purgatory, voters forgave Sanford’s trespass and, in 2013, elected him their representative in Congress. But on Tuesday, Sanford was tossed from office by his Republican constituents for committing a far graver sin: criticizing President Trump. With his bulldozing personality, Trump has transformed the GOP from a party of anti-communist cold warriors to one that coos over North Korea’s communist dictator, from...

    1. 2018 will be a very rough year for President Trump — and almost-catastrophic for the Republican Party, which has morphed into the Trump Party; 2. Last week’s Quinnipiac poll said it all: While 66 percent of the American people rate the economy as either “good or excellent,” only 36 percent approve of the job President Trump is doing; 3. Normally, a president’s approval rating tracks the rating of the economy: When the economy is struggling, so is the POTUS’ ratings. Conversely, previous presidents generally had their approval numbers go up when the economy went up; 4. But Trump’s behavior...

    Don’t believe the Democrat-driven anti-Trump hype about Tuesday night’s election results, said LevinTV host Mark Levin. He explained: In addition to factors like immigration and Democrat-leaning northern Virginia's increasing political clout, one of the biggest factors Tuesday night was the repeated failures of the do-nothing Republican Congress. This should serve as a wake-up call, said Levin. “If the Republican Party doesn’t get their act together … they could well lose the House [in 2018] and I fear they might,” Levin said. “Because they have nothing to run on.” "And if the Republicans lose the House, the president will be impeached,"...

    WASHINGTON — Senators Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse have already been to Iowa this year, Gov. John Kasich is eyeing a return visit to New Hampshire, and Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago. President Trump’s first term is ostensibly just warming up, but luminaries in his own party have begun what amounts to a shadow campaign for 2020 — as if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania...

    In case that wasn’t perfectly clear, CQ Roll Call’s April “Capitol Insiders Survey” found that large majorities of Republican staffers on Capitol Hill believe the Freedom Caucus is a “negative force” in the Republican Party. The results are not surprising, but are illustrative of the hostility to true conservatism in the swamp.

    On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” and “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now.” Drudge was spot on. This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program. Unfortunately, the leadership and establishment in the Republican party is incompetent. When you compare the accomplishments of President Barack Obama...

    Is the party—the Republican party, that is—over? That's what Joe Scarborough is predicting. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough surmised that "Donald Trump, by the end, will blow apart the Republican party" and that people are "going to look at George W. Bush as the last Republican president." Scarborough depicted Trump as "in a sense, the first independent president." Joe also suggested that Bernie Sanders might have the same party-demolishing impact on the Democrats. View the video here.

    Raleigh, N.C. — In a formal complaint to the Durham County Board of Elections, Thomas Stark, the attorney for the North Carolina Republican Party on Saturday demanded a recount of votes cast on and before Election Day, citing a counting error involving 90,000 ballots. Thomas Stark, general counsel for the GOP and a Durham County voter, filed the protest with the Durham County Board of Elections, alleging malfeasance in regard to the accuracy of the count. In the complaint, Stark says the county used data from potentially corrupt tabulation machines from five early voting sites and one general election precinct....

    Many decisions are made at the president’s desk, but the major political party to which he or she belongs wields significant power over which domestic and international policies are advanced and what becomes law. Here is a summary of the parties’ positions on some of the vital issues facing the country. Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, stated, “We are a two-party system…we may not like it, but that’s a reality. A third party candidate is not going to win. The reality is that one of the candidates representing the two major parties is going to be elected...

    DELAWARE COUNTY, Ind. – The Delaware County Republican Party said vandals struck at their office last week. Someone threw two landscaping bricks through a window on Oct. 8. Signs for Donald Trump and Todd Young were hanging on the window at the time, according to the group’s Facebook page. Officials said it would cost about $1,200 to replace the broken window and said anyone interested in helping cover the cost could donate online. This week, Delaware County Sheriff Ray Dudley said his office has received reports of campaign signs being taken from yards in the Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township...

    2016: Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization The 2016 election will be remembered as the year the Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization. This is the year that an insurgent candidate, Donald Trump, captured the nomination despite the opposition of 16 establishment candidates, their operatives, party leaders, consultants, special interests, major donors and the majority of the “conservative” media.
