    Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele claimed Friday on MSNBC that President Donald Trump was ‘probably’ upset that law enforcement prevented a terror attack against prominent Democrats. A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant was arrested earlier this week for allegedly stockpiling guns and ammunition with the alleged intention of carrying out a large-scale terror attack to “establish a white homeland.”

All discussed how evil Trump was and how he cost them their races! I attended and feel obligated to report on this pathetic exercise.

    Meghan McCain - the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain - called out at President Donald Trump shortly before his State of the Union speech Tuesday night over a dig he reportedly took at her father's book sales, posting on Twitter that his "obsession with my father 6 months after his death is pathetic and telling." McCain’s comments were in response to reports that Trump took a shot at the former Republican senator who died in August after being diagnosed with brain cancer during a luncheon with television news anchors. In addition to criticizing Democrats, Trump reportedly said McCain’s...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has privately cautioned President Donald Trump not to declare a national emergency to build his southern border wall, The Washington Post reported Friday. He warned Trump that such a declaration might split the GOP and that Congress could pass a resolution opposing it, two Republican sources familiar with the conversation told the newspaper. In such a situation Trump might be forced into the first veto of his presidency — against his own party, McConnell pointed out, according to the sources...Some GOP legislators have already spoken out against an emergency declaration — and against another...

    Frustrated Republicans say it’s time for the Senate to reclaim more power over foreign policy and are planning to move a measure Thursday that would be a stunning rebuke to a president of their own party. GOP lawmakers are deeply concerned over President Trump’s reluctance to listen to his senior military and intelligence advisers, fearing it could erode national security. They say the Senate has lost too much of its constitutional power over shaping the nation’s foreign policy and argue that it’s time to begin clawing some of it back. “Power over foreign policy has shifted to the executive branch...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Democrats and Never Trumpers will put Trump back in the White House in 2020 -- Here's whyAs you listen to the liberal media, the Never Trumpers and the left-wing Trump haters chatter on about President Trump’s current situation, remember these two numbers — 35 and 49. The first number was President Ronald Reagan’s approval in January 1983. The second number was the number of states Reagan carried 22 months later. I am not predicting President Trump will carry 49 states. This is a different environment, and the tribalism that divides the country is deeper than it...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall on the U.S. Mexico border would be a “terrible idea” and that he would fight it. RUBIO: Sure. Because I think it’s important. Look I don’t think we will have to fight. I’m not sure they will do that. I know it’s an option they looked at. But now you are at the mercy of a district court and ultimately an appellate court. It may not withstand if you look at some of the other rulings we have...

    A record-breaking number of wealthy donors have gathered at conservative billionaire industrialist Charles Koch’s private weekend retreat, where leaders of the powerful political network have taken a decidedly different, more politically muted tone than in years past. […] On Saturday night, Charles Koch told the donors that attitudes against perceived adversaries and people with different beliefs were tearing the country apart but that his network was working to “unite with anybody to do right.” “This network has taken its effectiveness to a whole new level,” Koch said. […] Prominent Koch donor Doug Deason of Texas said the reported infighting between...

    Rush Limbaugh identified National Review as a news media outfit that prioritizes the pursuit of “approval [from] the mainstream media” over veracity in reporting, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of his eponymous show. Limbaugh highlighted recent news media narratives framing a group of Covington Catholic High School students as “racists,” including agreement from ostensibly conservative news media outlets and personalities.

    Republicans should do as many as their constituents do and stop believing every word they read in the New York Times. We have now entered—without much screaming and kicking along the way— in The Era of the Holier-Than-Thou Accusers. That the getting to be prolific accusers are also the abusers of innocent targeted victims seems to be going straight over the heads of the chattering classes.

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" that border walls "obviously" work in some areas, and he rejected suggestions that barriers should be removed where they already exist. The No. 2 House Democrat additionally asserted that the question of whether to fund President Trump's proposed border wall -- a dispute at the center of the unprecedented partial federal government shutdown -- is "not an issue of morality." Hoyer's comments were seemingly at odds with the positions of other House Democrats, who have argued that border walls like the one Trump is...

    The good news: Americans agree that there is a national-security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac. The bad news: pretty much everything else in the poll. Not only do respondents approve of a Democratic plan to re-open most of the shuttered agencies in the government, a solid majority puts the blame for the standoff on Donald Trump, not Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer: American voters support 63 – 30 percent a Democratic proposal to reopen parts of the government that do not involve border security while negotiating funding for the Wall,...

    “In one of contemporary history’s intriguing caroms, European politics just now is a story of how one decision by a pastor’s dutiful daughter has made life miserable for a vicar’s dutiful daughter. Two of the world’s most important conservative parties are involved in an unintended tutorial on a cardinal tenet of conservatism, the law of unintended consequences, which is that the unintended consequences of decisions in complex social situations are often larger than, and contrary to, those intended.” That’s the elephantine lead of George Will’s recent column, headlined “Today’s Germany is the best Germany the world has seen.” The real...

    A bid to remove a Texas county GOP leader from his post because he is Muslim has been rejected. The Tarrant County Republican Party voted on Thursday to keep Dr. Shahid Shafi in his post as vice chairman, according to the Star-Telegram. In a video posted on the Star-Telegram's website, Mike Snyder of the Tarrant County Republican Party announced, "the vote total was 139 to support Dr. Shafi and only 49 to reject him." Snyder went on to say, "tonight's vote demonstrates the majority of Republicans in Tarrant County stands with Dr. Shahid Shafi. And on the firm foundation of...

    Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) needled fellow Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) in an op-ed in The Washington Post on Friday, arguing that the GOP doesn't need "more distractions." "The mainstream media and Democrats want to further divide Republicans, and now Romney has played right into their hands," Perdue wrote. "Jeff Flake (Ariz.) filled that role before his retirement; the last thing we need now in the Senate is a Jeff Flake on steroids. We certainly don’t need more distractions. We need constructive leaders who want to get things done." Perdue invoked Flake, a vocal critic of President Trump who retired...

The survey showed only 12 percent viewed Ryan favorably, while a supermajority of 71 percent viewed him unfavorably and 17 percent were unsure.

    President Donald Trump’s most prominent GOP critics on Capitol Hill are days away from completing their Senate careers, raising the question of who — if anyone — will take their place as willing to publicly criticize a president who remains popular with nearly 9 in 10 Republican voters. Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee engaged in a war of words with the president on myriad issues over the past 18 months, generating headlines and fiery tweets from a president who generally insists on getting the last word. Those battles put them on the outs with many...
