    Top White House officials have reportedly been holding private meetings with lawmakers this week to boost support for the president’s foreign policy strategy, although the outreach effort appears to have left some lawmakers confused and upset. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) described a meeting with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and National Security Adviser Susan Rice earlier this week as “one of the most bizarre I've attended on Foreign Relations on foreign policy in our country.” “I know several of us were involved in a very bizarre discussion last night. This continues a very bizarre discussion,” Corker added, according...

    Less than a quarter of Republicans in Congress actually voice support funding for President Donald Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a new survey by USA Today said Wednesday. The USA Today poll asked all members of Congress if they approved an initial $1.6 billion in funding to begin construction of a wall According to the survey, only 69 of 292 GOP legislators responded that they approve of the plan. Three — Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M.; and Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas — said they oppose it. The rest didn’t directly answer the question, or simply didn’t...
  • The True Conservatives Hype A Trumpocalypse In A Desperate Bid For Attention

    The latest Never Trump meme is that Donald Trump has defected to the Democrats, a notion that might charitably be labeled “wishful thinking” if it actually involved any thinking. But the “wishful” part is in full effect as this tattered remnant of worshippers at the altar of Establishment Conservatism seeks to revive their failed cult and reassume their position as the priesthood of all things on the right. You remember Establishment Conservatism, right? It is to conservatism as Unitarians are to Christianity – “Well, I sort of believe in something, but mostly I just want whatever I do validated.” Establishment...

    25 Key Quotes from Steve Bannon’s 60 Minutes Interview Joel B. Pollak On Sunday, September 10, Breitbart News executive chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared on CBS News’ 60 Minutes for his first television interview. The following are 25 key quotes, both from the main interview and “overtime.” 1. “The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. That’s a brutal fact we have to face.” 2. “Mitch McConnell when we first met him … he basically says, ‘ don’t want to hear any more of this “drain the swamp” talk.’” 3. “In the 48...

    Since Trump’s taken over the White House, Republicans have fought tooth and nail to keep the Democratic agenda alive. Witness: Obamacare. Where’s the repeal? Oh yes, that’s right. There is no repeal. So goes the fight with the border wall — nothing, nada, except headlines like this one, from Politico in July: “House Republicans seek to dodge border wall vote.”
  • Koch Brothers Line Up with DACA Illegals to Pressure Republican Congress to Pass Amnesty

    Long-time pro-mass immigration billionaires Charles and David Koch became the latest force to pressure congressional Republicans to nullify the end of DACA with a legislative amnesty Thursday. Koch spokespeople said the brothers will throw their weight behind the growing effort to force a two-house GOP majority that has refused to pass either funding for the southern border wall or the RAISE Act, a key nationalist immigration reform, to quickly pass an amnesty for those who were once exempted from federal immigration law under President Barack Obama’s DACA. The Koch amenability to open borders and amnesty is nothing new. In 2013,...

    A former Republican strategist has hit out at party leaders who have “enabled” Donald Trump’s behavior, stating they “deserve the reckoning that will eventually come for the GOP.” Sally Bradshaw, strategist and one of the authors of the Republican National Committee’s Growth and Opportunity Project, slammed Trump’s leadership as divisive and spoke about her disappointment with the party as rumors circulated that the president was preparing to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “Donald Trump is anti-woman, anti-Hispanic, anti-black, anti-anything that would bring the country together,” Bradshaw told Buzzfeed in an interview....

    Americans on average spent more on taxes in 2016 than they did on food and clothing combined, according to data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The same data also shows that in three years—from 2013 to 2016—the average tax bill for Americans increased 41.13 percent. In 2016, according to BLS, “consumer units” (which include families, financially independent individuals, and people living in a single household who share expenses) spent more on average on federal, state and local taxes ($10,489) than they did on food ($7,203) and clothing ($1,803) combined ($9,006). The average tax bill for American...

    In 2014, a fumbling old man was about to be replaced as a United States Senator from Mississippi when the Republican establishment, led by the same people who run the senate today, stepped in and pulled the dirtiest of tricks to save the old fool’s rubber stamp vote. That year as every year in almost all Southern states the real election was the Republican primary. Democrats don’t have a chance of winning a general election in the region and could barely put up a fight. We the honest American people, who want to make America Great Again, had a candidate...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan on Saturday criticized President Donald Trump for pardoning a former Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, becoming the highest-ranking Republican to object to the move. “The speaker does not agree with the decision,” said Ryan spokesman Doug Andres. “Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon.” The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about Mr. Ryan’s statement. On Friday, the White House announced that the president had pardoned Mr. Arpaio, known as...

    Speaker Ryan took to his social media Monday to condemn the white supremacists in Charlottesville AGAIN, yet remained completely silent about the violence from Antifa towards Trump supporters and police officers. Paul Ryan sent out FOUR tweets condemning white supremacism. In one tweet he called white supremacy a ‘scourge’. He still has yet to condemn Islamic terrorism after a Muslim terrorist killed 13 in Barcelona including an American citizen. CRICKETS. Paul Ryan tweeted out his statement regarding the Charlottesville violence where a young woman was killed after a white supremacist plowed through a crowd of protesters with his vehicle. After...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says there is “zero chance” Congress will allow the country to default on its debts by voting to not increase the borrowing limit. McConnell’s comments came Monday during a joint appearance in his home state of Kentucky with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. It was one of McConnell’s first public appearances since President Donald Trump publicly criticized him for failing to pass a repeal and replacement of former President Barack Obama’s health care law. McConnell did not mention Trump in his remarks, and he did not take questions from reporters after the event. But in...

    Remember when we used to have such high hopes for Paul Ryan? Back in 2012, we cheered Mitt Romney for picking him as his running mate. Yay! Paul Ryan was bringing some much-needed conservative bona fides to the ticket, all is well. Fast forward five years, and many of us look on in bemusement as the once golden boy becomes more and more of the problem. Take today, for instance. The now Speaker of the House is preparing for a CNN town hall in Racine, Wisconsin, the focus of which will undoubtedly turn to the events last weekend in Charlottesville...

    The leftist extremists are the true "threat," not the "marginal bozos" of universally condemned hate groups, and "idiot Republicans" are getting sucked into the "ludicrous and ridiculous... charade... to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump," best-selling author David Horowitz told Newsmax TV. "If there's a serious fascist movement in America, it's the left," Horowitz told guest host Jonathan Gilliam on Thursday's "The Schnitt Show." "They're the ones who go around to cities picking fights, violence — they want to shut up other people. Even these alt-right clowns were not about shutting up the opposition and suppressing it. "One fascism in...

    Whatever. We’ve been through around eight iterations of “Republicans ready to dump Trump” since the primaries began last year. They didn’t do it at the convention, they didn’t do it after the “Access Hollywood” tape, they’re not going to do it over his Charlottesville spin, and they’re not going to do it for Mueller unless he finds something so foul as to leave Ryan no choice politically. And by “foul,” I mean more than Trump nudging James Comey to “let this go” with Mike Flynn. I’m talking about bodies buried in the basement of Trump Tower. And even then, most...

    President Donald Trump has stepped up his attacks on Republican senators, an approach he may regret if he is someday impeached and the Senate has to weigh charges against him stemming from an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. More than half of the 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which would be central to any proceeding to remove Trump from office, have tangled with the Republican president, including on Thursday when he fired off early-morning tweets.

    At some point in 2019 (if not sooner) a Republican Senator may walk into the Oval Office and say to President Trump: “Mr. President, we don’t have the votes,” at which point the Trump presidency will end in a resignation or a conviction in the Senate. This scenario actually occurred forty-three years ago this summer when Republican Senator Barry Goldwater walked into the Oval Office and told Republican President Richard Nixon that they didn’t have the votes in the Senate to save his presidency.
