    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. The event comes after Trump, citing Hurricane Florence, canceled a re-election rally in Cape Girardeau scheduled for last Thursday. Friday will mark the third public event Trump has held in Missouri. He went to Springfield and St. Charles last...

    Republicans know what the midterm election polls say. They hear the talk about a blue wave. They're aware of historical party-in-power midterm losses in the House. But they still see something else, seven weeks out from election day. "It's like the hurricane cone," said one GOP strategist. "It's out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and the range of where it can land is huge, because there are a lot of things that are yet to happen that you have to understand." Notice the strategist did not predict Republicans will keep control of the House. Rather, he and others...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee will proceed to a planned vote on Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh Thursday, sources tell Breitbart News Monday. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is, according to these sources, refusing to yield to pressure over allegations of a high school attack revealed by Democrats over the weekend. Since July, Ranking Member Diane Feinstein (D-CA) had possession of a letter from California professor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, claiming that Kavanaugh and another teenager had forced her into a room at a 1982 party where Kavanaugh forced himself on her before she escaped. Feinstein declined to introduce...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) — The prognosis for President Donald Trump and his party was grim.</p> <p>In a post-Labor Day briefing at the White House, a top Republican pollster told senior staff that the determining factor in the election wouldn’t be the improving economy or the steady increase in job creation. It would be how voters feel about Trump. And the majority of the electorate, including a sizable percentage of Republican-leaning voters, doesn’t feel good about the president, according to a presentation from pollster Neil Newhouse that spanned dozens of pages.</p>
  • GOP Gives Up On Repealing Obamacare

    Front Page Magazine ^ | September 14, 2018 | Matthew Vadun
    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,...

    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 controversial plan to oust a top Tarrant County Republican official because he’s Muslim was revived late Thursday. . . . . . This issue began flaring up again recently on social media, particularly when local Republican James Trimm posted an article he wrote — Has Tarrant County GOP turned its back on Israel? — on Facebook. He noted that Tarrant County is the largest red area across the state and nation and “If Tarrant County goes, so will go the state of Texas and the nation.” “If Dr. Shafi himself will publicly state that he will support Israel with...

    The arguments for doing the converse are getting a little silly. If you’re a long-time Republican voter, you’ve likely by now heard the growing and insistent and highly concerned media refrain: Republicans who truly care about America will vote for Democrats this fall. In RealClearPolitics last month, columnist Froma Harrop addressed the woes of Republicans in the age of Trump, offering her take on the only honorable options for this fall: “You can follow the lead of GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, conservative columnist George Will and others who have fled the party. Or you can stay in and help a...
  • George W. Bush Raising Money to Maintain Trump Cover-up (Textbook definition of delusion)

    New York Magazine ^ | September 12, 2018 | Jonathan Chait
    George W. Bush, who declined to endorse Donald Trump (or anybody) in 2016, and made muttered elliptical criticisms of the 45th president, has thrown himself into the task of covering up Trump’s many crimes. Bush, reports Politico, is raising money for candidates who are committed to maintaining the cover-ups. To be sure, Bush doesn’t put it that way, and almost certainly doesn’t think of it that way. But it is syllogistically true. The Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress have followed a course of non-oversight, blocking disclosure of Trump’s tax returns, allowing him to to be paid by figures...

    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...

    The Los Angeles Progressive ^ | September 8, 2018 | Berry Craig
    The anonymous New York Times op-ed piece trashing Trump sent Democratic hopes soaring. The loyal opposition prayed the story would steel the spines of Republican bigwigs to speak truth to power and finally ‘fess up that the emperor has no duds. Instead, White House insiders are falling all over themselves to deny authorship. Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP brass are still aboard the Trump clown car. “The root of the problem is the president’s amorality,” warned the unnamed author, who claimed to “work for the president” and allying himself or herself with “like-minded colleagues…to thwart...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Republicans have added more than 58,000 registered voters since Donald Trump took office while Democrats have lost more than 2,500. The GOP registration boom nudged the number of registered Democrats below 50 percent in June for the first time in memory. The impressive registration gains have boosted the GOP’s confidence they can prevent a blue wave this November.

    "Labor Day" holiday has passed, and now we head into the frenzy of a sizzling election season that is dangerous for Republicans, but not fatal for them, no matter what the outcome. However, the Democrats have two paths, one is to capture control of the House of Representatives and harass or possibly impeach, POTUS, Donald J, Trump, but fail to remove him from office, because they will not have the votes to do so in the U.S. Senate. The other, candidly is fatal...the Democrats lose both the House and Senate and effectively cease to exist as a functioning, effective political...

    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...

    Recent polls and surveys are delivering, at best, mixed news for Republicans regarding the upcoming midterm elections. The good news is that prospects have turned positive for Republicans to win Senate seats currently held by Democrats in Florida, New Jersey and Wisconsin. But looking for good news in the House is a bigger challenge. Probability assessments from various sources give Republicans a 25 to 50 percent chance of keeping control of the House. A survey from Pew Research points to greater engagement from Democratic voters -- by measures such as participating in rallies and making political contributions -- than Republicans....

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | August 28, 2018 | Julie Pace and Nicholas Riccardi, The Associated Press
    Shadowed by the death of six-term Sen. John McCain, Arizona voters are nominating candidates to replace his seat-mate in a primary contest that lays bare the fissures in a Republican Party dramatically remade by President Donald Trump. Three Republicans are vying Tuesday to replace Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring after his fierce criticism of Trump made his political future in the state untenable. All three, including establishment favorite Rep. Martha McSally, have embraced Trump and distanced themselves from McCain — a sign of how far the late senator’s status had fallen with conservatives who dominate Arizona’s GOP primaries. The...

    Human beings (and Americans are no exception) like their heroes and villains easily identifiable and the explanation of historical events simple. As such, both Republicans and Democrats have built easily digestible historical narratives regarding American political history since the Civil War. Peculiarly, there seems to be a debate about who gets to own the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. On the left, the meandering and incoherent narrative goes like this. Lincoln and his mighty Union army launched a war against the racist, slave-holding Confederacy to rid America of the abominable institution of slavery and make equal citizens of the former slaves....
