RINOs works for me. It's simple and to the point. Why make everything more complicated than it has to be? GOPe works, too.

"Real Republicans" will realize the value of these "NeverTrump Republicans" when it comes to state and local elections. Drive them out. Go ahead. And see how many seats are lost at all levels of elected government, Senate and House included. Some folks just don't get it. Purity doesn't matter.

I think the NT'ers were very comfortable with the status quo prior to Trump. They were cozy with whoever was in charge.They had access to moderate Republican Presidents, and got along somewhat with democrat Presidents. They are observers and commenters, not doers like Trump is. Trump upset the apple cart.

NeverTrumpers and RINOs are basically wannabee Democrats. Only one or two issues kept them from switching parties. Maybe it was guns, judges, taxes, or privacy. Many of them are social liberals. Have a hunch many of them could not explain why they were Republicans in the first place. Perhaps it was just expediency. They are showing their true colors now though..

Okay. Kristol and Goldberg don't like Trump. They aren't 'traitors'. They just have philosophical differences with many of us. But at the end of the day will they actually vote for an abortion-loving, open-border sanctuary, who-cares-about-American-workers politician? Words matter far less than deeds. I believe that Trump is a street fighter and that is truly what the right has need for decades. The left has been fighting while we have been patsy's and rolling over. There will be a time for peace - and maybe civility will once again be possible here in America when the courts are refashioned to be true to the Constitution and the rule of law. THAT will be Trump's greatest victory. We won't need another Trump if we can restore order. After the Civil War, General Sherman left the public space and personally struggled with the horrors of his actions - but his March to the Sea was absolutely necessary. If we demonize those who don't perfectcly agree with everything we believe then how are we different from the Dems?

#7, Okay. First, Kristol has announced he is a Democrat and will vote for evil in November. I hope and pray Jonah will one day (soon) see the light.. But for you to say Sherman’s horrific actions were ‘absolutely necessary’ make my blood boil. How dare you? I am a Southerner who doesn’t glorify the rape, pillage and destruction wrought by Evil Yankee Invaders like Sherman. Necessary my butt.

Neither of the two Never Trump names cited above voted for Trump in 2016. Kristol did everything he could to stop Trump, up to and including election day, even though it meant electing Hillary. Jonah Goldberg decided that he couldn't decide who would be worse. He did, however, say this: "My chief worry, among many, is that Trump would be worse in the long term because he threatens to destroy modern American conservatism." Which brings us to the ailing elephant in the room: The problem with Goldberg and Kristol isn't that they were disloyal; it's that they were wrong. Kristol is still wrong -- stupidly, perversely, and continuously. Goldberg has moderated his aversion but not conceded his errors. These two professional conservatives blew it in 2016. If either had been listened to by Trump supporters, things would be vastly worse for both conservatism and America. As reliable guides to what would and should happen, they were worse than useless. And Bill Kristol is even worse now. Those who won't learn, can't teach.

What happened to Elizabeth Warren? 36 replies
Posted by Toledo 2/12/2020 7:14:38 AM Post Reply
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

Team Trump is barring foreigners who have been in China recently from entering the country. Americans returning from China are quarantined for 14 days. China ­accuses President Trump of arousing fear. WHO claims the president’s policies “unnecessarily interfere with travel and trade.” Don’t fall for this bombast.

The Democrats are clinging to the inevitable pious fraud that Donald Trump is a compromised president because he was impeached. After a spurious investigation in which the president had none of the constitutionally guaranteed rights of a defendant or the defenses available by precedent to presidents who are the subjects of such investigations, the Democrats charged Mr. Trump with acts that are not impeachable. Then they failed to adduce any evidence that the president had committed the acts with which they charged him.

Very few things I have said have elicited as much negative attention as this: What people say in private tells little, if anything, about their character. Left-wing critics have had a field day mocking me (mockery is the left's substitute for argument), but even some religious conservatives have taken issue with me (without the mockery) -- don't I know that it is precisely how we act in private that most clearly reveals our character?

Before you crucify me for not condemning “the traitor,” please hear me out. My position has nothing to do with whether I agree with Romney’s “guilty” vote on the first article of impeachment. And it has nothing to do with whether I believe he is a true conservative. Or even a loyal Republican for that matter. It has to do with something far deeper. Are you willing to hear me out? I’m quite aware of the litany of charges against Mitt Romney’s past political record and business dealings (see here and here and here and here).
Nancy Pelosi’s Midnight Ride 5 replies

The big lie behind the impeachment of President Trump is the notion that the Democrats are better custodians of our national security than the Republicans. It has animated the long campaign to suborn Mr. Trump’s presidency — right up to the the eve of the verdict in the Senate, when Speaker Pelosi, at a press conference, likened herself to Paul Revere, but crying, “the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming.” “The day we were bringing the articles to the floor,” Mrs. Pelosi reminded the press, “I quoted the ‘Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.’” That’s the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow classic in which the Boston

A law in South Carolina bans playing pinball if you're under 18. That's just one of America's many ridiculous laws restricting freedom. "There is a role for the government in keeping people safe from actual criminals, people who commit murder, robbery," says Rafael Mangual, a "tough-on-crime" guy at the Manhattan Institute. "But a lot of laws don't keep people safe," he says. "There's a federal prohibition on walking a dog on a leash longer than six feet on federal property. It is a jailable offense."

The Wuhan coronavirus spreading from China is now likely to become a pandemic that circles the globe, according to many of the world’s leading infectious disease experts. The prospect is daunting. A pandemic — an ongoing epidemic on two or more continents — may well have global consequences, despite the extraordinary travel restrictions and quarantines now imposed by China and other countries, including the United States. Scientists do not yet know how lethal the new coronavirus is, however, so there is uncertainty about how much damage a

Donald Trump's most famous and flamboyant lawyer vanished from his trial Thursday - turning up in Miami to fight back against a tidal wave of criticism for his extraordinary defense that anything a president does to get re-elected is unimpeachable. The Harvard professor surfaced in Florida as other academics and attorneys reacted with astonishment to his position, which he then said he had never actually said. On CNN he told Wolf Blitzer that he had a commitment in the state Thursday and it was difficult to change his flight because the Super Bowl is on this weekend in Miami.

Senator Susan Collins’ speech announcing her vote for Justice Kavanaugh was so memorably principled and well put that her fans — the Sun included — will grant her license to vote however she wants in respect of President Trump. Not that she needs anyone’s license. Yet we don’t mind saying that the principles the senator articulated in the Kavanaugh case beckon in the case of Mr. Trump for an early acquittal. The principal principle Ms. Collins marked in the Kavanaugh case was due process. Here’s how she put it in what we predicted would become famous words:

Sen.

Speaking to KSL’s Sunday Edition during the weekend, Romney, who asserted last week that the president “committed an act so extreme and egregious that it rises to the level of a high crime and misdemeanor,” said he “agonized over the responsibility that ultimately would come [his] way” and proclaimed that he “hoped beyond hope” he would not find Trump guilty.

Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden is the one Democrat capable of beating President Trump in the 2020 election, but he doesn't think Biden will win the nomination. Instead, he says it will likely go to one of the progressive candidates on the roster. "I'd say he's probably the most likely one to have a chance at beating Donald Trump, but I don't see Joe getting the nomination, I just don't see him getting there," Ryan told CNBC at the annual Milken Conference in Abu Dhabi.

MSNBC’s Willie Geist asked the former vice president as part of the network’s New Hampshire primary coverage if he agreed with Democratic strategist James Carville’s assertion that the Democrats will give Trump four more years if they nominate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).“I refuse to suggest any Democrat can lose,” Biden replied. “I think we could run Mickey Mouse against this president and have a shot.”
On the removal of Sondland and Vindman 35 replies

Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.

"People were just coming up to me and, you know, just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday," Sprague told News4.

But the biggest winner in Tuesday's contest - the first primary in the White House race - may well be Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who came in a strong third. Klobuchar finished far ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are limping out of New Hampshire facing serious questions about the future of their campaigns. "We love you New Hampshire," Klobuchar stressed in her primary night speech. "Because of you, we are taking this campaign to Nevada.
