The Republican Main Street Partnership is beginning to build a “farm team” to help the GOP recapture the House from Democrats come 2022. The group of moderate Republicans, which bills itself as “the governing wing of the Republican Party,” counts 55 members of Congress in its ranks, according to its website, and it is in the early stages of charting the GOP’s way back to the majority in the House. Republican Main Street Partnership CEO Sarah Chamberlain said her team is focused in 2020 on protecting vulnerable House Republicans while flipping a handful of seats that Democrats added in the 2018 midterms.

Comments:

Comical. The Milquetoast wing of the Chamber of Commerce GOP wants to make sure the House stays blue. Good for business, you know.

What the hell is a moderate republican? Just a socialist in less of a hurry to destroy the country?

Ugh! Yea, right. The Paul Ryan types. These moderate Rinos, like Mitt as well, are the best friends of the Dem media complex as neverTrumpers. Then when they run for something important, the Dem media will attack them for having "binders full of women" and such rot. At that point, those moderate Rinos won't be able to grovel low enough and will back down to the Dem overlords on key issues. What a joke.

To recapture the house in 2022! Wow, the usual lofty goals for this group. What's wrong with recapturing the house in 2020? They are giving the country away. Now I know why they do not like Trump. They cannot fight for what they believe in, because they really do not know what they believe in.

The difference between a "moderate Republican" and a Democrat is almost impossible to detect, mostly involves the letter after their name in a news story, and little to nothing else.

With Repubs like these, we don't need no Stinkin Donkey Dems to defeat us. Just let these RINOs have their way with Spineless Senator Romney as their Inspiration and to function as their "Below the RADAR" Leader. BTW: We have Paul Ryan to thank for the Dem's wins in 2018. If he had cooperated more with Mr Trump in those first 2 years, the Independents would have been more favorable to Republican Congresional Candidates and not as many seats would have been lost. We might have even held the House. As it was, that Congress led by Paul Ryan was scorned by Independents and many Repubs and laughed at by the Dems. Since he was leaving Congress anyways, I believe he wanted President Trump to have to deal with a Donkey Congess while knowing that Impeachment was just around the corner. He didn't help Trump enough during those first two years of his Presidency and he definitely didn't help the House garner Respect with the Voters. Because of Ryan, we only have a Piecemeal Wall on our Southern Border. He could have garnered the votes to fund a 2000 mile wall, but didn't because he didn't want Mr Trump to have that Big Political Win but mostly because Big Business and the US Chamber of Commerce wanted 100,000+ cheap labourers coming across the border every month. He had to support the Tax Cut because both The People and Big Business wanted it and he already had plans of becoming a Lobbyist for Big Corporations. I E. Don't bite the hand that's going to make you Very Rich in a few years! Can anybody here spell Benedict Arnold? Ryan now sits on FOX NEWS' Board of Directors and has forced them to use a Left Wing Polling Company to Poll against Trump so that even Fox News is now showing the President in a bad light. He also forced them to hire Donna Brazile to bring CNN style Crapola to Fox. I call it "Political Sedition" and it's all to condition Americans to accept an Impeachment, a long drawn out Trial in the Senate and to Forstall/Curtail an Open Rebellion by Americans as occurred in Northern Ireland in years past. I predict a Trump Landslide in 2020 with the Dems losing 30+ seats in the House and 2 or 3 seats in the Senate. I just hope I live long enough to see the successes of President Trump's second four years with a Republican House and Senate! Why this long Rant? Because these RINOs are putting up a Smoke Screen claiming to win back the House in 2022/2024 but only winning a few seats in 2020. It's a Trojan Horse designed to Sucker Independents/Repubs into staying home in 2020. I.E. Why bother voting if you're just going to lose anyway! This is all a Conspiracy by Never Trumpers to Destroy this President in his Second Term since the Dems aren't going to be able to do it in this Term! Bad People Succeed when Good People Aquiess..... But, it's going to be Massive Amounts of MAGA for the next five years in spite of them!

California is increasing business tax rates on legal marijuana, a move that stunned struggling companies that have been pleading with the state to do just the opposite. Hefty marijuana taxes that can approach 50 per cent in some communities have been blamed for pushing shoppers into California's tax-free illegal market, which is thriving. Industry analysts estimate that $3 are spent in the illegal market for every $1 in the legal one.(Snip) Governor Gavin Newsom had lowered expectations for projected tax dollars from within the legal market.

Joe Biden really put his fist in his mouth this time. The former vice president had a cringe-worthy moment late in Wednesday’s fifth Democratic presidential primary debate when he used the words “keep punching at it” to answer a question about violence against women. Asked what could be done to address sexual violence and harassment against women, Biden said he’s authored the original Violence Against Women Act and that its reauthorization needs to pass. He also talked about changing the culture on college campuses and touted the “It’s on Us” movement created in the Obama Administration.

Three years after outsider Donald Trump blew up the political world with his implausible victory over the consummate insider, Hillary Clinton, many establishment Republicans still don’t get it. From their elite cocoon, they continue to indulge the hauteur that put off ordinary voters who had grown tired of a fossilized political class that serially ignored their interests, and seemed more concerned with their own insider perks and privilege, rather than in repairing the damage that decades of bipartisan progressive technocracy had inflicted on the Constitutional order.

After years of steadfast support from the cultural Right, Chick-fil-A has betrayed that support. Chick-fil-A on Monday raised the white flag in a battle it was winning by announcing it would no longer support the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA); two faith-based organizations whose religious tenets, aligning with those of Chick-fil-A, guided them in support of traditional marriage, but whose actual philanthropic activities never discriminated against anyone.
