Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein has called out 21 Republican senators who he says have expressed 'extreme contempt' for President Trump in private - but have refused to air their grievances in public.Bernstein accused the senators - including the likes of Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Chuck Grassley and Susan Collins - of a 'craven silence' that has 'enabled Trump's most grievous conduct'.That includes 'undermining and discrediting the US electoral system' Bernstein said, taking aim at Trump's refusal to concede to Joe Biden while claiming 'massive fraud' - a claim that his legal team has failed to substantiate in court.

That leaves 29 that want support of 81 million voters! I'm pretty sure in Texas newly re-elected Bushite Cornyn, who's reaching across the aisle to 'do something' for the 'dreamers'....does not want America First. Since Cruz was elected against the good ol' boy, I suppose he supports the 81 million and Trump....

"Conceding" or "not conceding" is totally irrelevant. When I hear or read that "not conceding" or "refusing to concede" is tantamount to refusing to the leave the White House, I can only think that those people who float such an idea are totally stupid.

No need for a stale old hack to state the obvious. Imagine where we'd be if such Republicans were interested in the well-being of ordinary citizens and the health of our nation instead of feathering their own nests and strutting about like do-nothing royalty. They're worse than the Democrats, who at least are honest about wanting to fundamentally transform the USA into a third-world realm of peasantry.

He might just have done voters in these districts a favor by finally confirming what we have long suspected. The Uniparty lives and breathes thanks to these weasels. Bernstein is just another head up his nethers democrat who thinks it is okay to cheat as long as you don't make it too obvious.

Don't trust Bernstein, but I find this believable. Too many Republicans are cowardly backstabbers hiding behind the Democrats letting them take point. Trump is largely alone in Washington. His support is out in the general public. Not Washington. That is probably a good thing considering all the rampant corruption in Washington.

FTA: That vote will decide which party controls the Republican-led senate. If both races go to the Democrats, they will take control - gifting Joe Biden the first all-blue Congress since Bill Clinton in 1994........... I wonder which one of these useful idiots made that quote? (Chris Pleasance or Emily Webber) From 2008 - 2010 Obama had both the House & Senate under demorat control. Until the slaughter that came in the 2010 mid-terms and the republications retook congress control.

That's because those Senators are in the deep state and want their "perks" for themselves and their families to continue. They get rich and we pay for it and stupidly elect them again and again. They lie to us and tell us what we want to hear and never accomplish that when they get re-elected. Who are the fools. (I stupidly believed Bush too)

Carl Bernstein is a known liar. That said, I know that some of these have openly been never-Trumpers. But be careful; this may be a mix of truth and deceit to sew distrust among Republicans. I agree that we need to police such elitist as Romney, Rubio and Collins out of politics. They are more interested in social clubs than serving the American People.

Good! We will keep that List of Republican Senators who were NOT really supporters of their President. They were happy that Biden has been called the Winner. So, we will be Happy when we primary those Senators when they are up for re-election. We don't need People in Congress who PRETEND to be Republicans to get elected, then refuse to support the REPUBLICAN President. We can play that game too!

#1, "Where has Bernstein been?" he's like a purulent boil that recedes back beneath the skin, ripening again and again, and finally erupting through the surface with all its infectious stench. And now that he has "outed' these people, if it's true, he has rendered them effete. more effete. useless. showing how really duplicitous and untrustworthy they are. So to condemn the President and demand he concede would be to show them so easy for political adversaries to bend and twist to their will, which makes them fools as well as untrustworthy and duplicitous: LIARS & FALSE. Nothing uglier in the relationships of men in the battles upon which our Liberty depends. What of President Trump's accomplishments do these perfidious Senators disapprove??? Let's hear it.

President Trump should never concede, just let the process move along, and if the electors finally provide Biden with the 270 he needs, then he will at that time be president-elect Biden. Conceding would enable Biden to essentially run a parallel government.

President Donald Trump disparaged his former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Tuesday after he voiced his opposition to the president’s foreign policy.“That says it all about Mattis,” Trump said, sharing a story highlighting the former general’s criticism of President Trump’s “America First” agenda. “Obama fired him. I should have fired him sooner.” (Tweets) Mattis teamed up with three other authors for a co-bylined essay in Foreign Affairs magazine denouncing Trump’s agenda.“In practice, ‘America first’ has meant ‘America alone,'” they wrote. “That has damaged the country’s ability to address problems before they reach U.S. territory and has thus compounded the danger emergent threats pose.”

President Donald Trump attacked Fox News and demanded the election be rerun in an early morning tweet storm that featured voter fraud allegations from actor Randy Quaid in a starring role. Trump, in the nearly dozen tweets and retweets fired off Tuesday morning, appeared to be backpedaling from Monday evening's decision by the General Services Administration to allow the transition process to begin, giving President-elect Joe Biden and his team access to the federal government to begin the transfer of power.Trump tweeted his blessing of the move, which many interpreted as a concession to Biden's win - or as close as a concession as the president would get.

Here’s a blast from the past! Back in 2006 when the great Lou Dobbs was at CNN the former news channel ran a segment on Smartmatic voting machines. According to this CNN report, Smartmatic was based in Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela and was sold to Sequoia. But the top officials for Smartmatic were still in Venezuela. CNN was worried this could interfere with our democracy.Amazing! This is from the CNN segment:Smartmatic, the Electronic Voting Machine manufacturer whose machines are notorious for failures, is based in Venezuela. The Treasury Department, which is supposed to

President-elect Joe Biden will head to Georgia to campaign for the two Democratic candidates to runoff Senate races, incoming White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Sunday.“Winning those two Senate seats in Georgia is important, but we’re going to do everything we can to help those two candidates,” Klain said Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week.”“We’ve already moved people who were working on the Biden campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there, and I expect you’ll see the president-elect travel down there before Election Day,” he continued.

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis declared in an article in Foreign Affairs on Monday that the “America First” foreign policy had damaged national security, and called on Joe Biden to “eliminate ‘America first'” from U.S. strategy. Mattis resigned in December 2018, citing policy disagreements with the president, who had just ordered a troop drawdown in Syria. In his resignation letter, Mattis said that the U.S. needed to do more to show “respect” to American allies.(Snip) In his new article, however, Mattis says the opposite, calling for the “end of America First”: The United States today is undermining the foundations of an international order

Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein has called out 21 Republican senators who he says have expressed 'extreme contempt' for President Trump in private - but have refused to air their grievances in public.Bernstein accused the senators - including the likes of Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Chuck Grassley and Susan Collins - of a 'craven silence' that has 'enabled Trump's most grievous conduct'.That includes 'undermining and discrediting the US electoral system' Bernstein said, taking aim at Trump's refusal to concede to Joe Biden while claiming 'massive fraud' - a claim that his legal team has failed to substantiate in court.

Barack Obama just revealed a surprising goal Michelle Obama had when she was FLOTUS .In his new book, The Promised Land, the former president explains how he was once going to the beach with their daughter Sasha and Michelle refused to go. He said that she vowed, as first lady, to never be captured on film in a bathing suit. Obama confirmed this in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine.He said: She was serious. ‘This is one of my main goals as first lady. I will not be photographed by the paparazzi in a bathing suit.’ And she succeeded. During

You probably already know that Trump’s legal team announced that Sidney Powell is not a team member. The brief statement leaves unanswered the most important question: “Why?” Absent solid information, speculation leads us either to “This is the beginning of the end” or “This is all part of the plan” – and I’m leaning to the latter. (snip) If Powell represents the campaign, the government regulates individual donations. If she’s apart from the campaign, things are less constrained. Lin Wood also chimed in, assuring people Powell is still in the game: Sidney Powell @SidneyPowell1 & I are more alike than we are different. We are fighting different legal battles for the same clients

Is anyone else too old to start living on his knees? See, submission is not in the cards. The question is whether preserving our freedom means dissolving the Union. And though our alleged betters tell us we are not allowed to think about that horrible prospect, it’s the ruling caste itself that raised the question. When you get a vile clown like Chuck Schumer promising to “change America” if he steals another Georgia election in the coming run-off, it only reaffirms that we don’t want to “change America” – at least not into the Venezuela-lite he and his coterie of neo-Marxist bother-wedders, fake Indians, and buck-tooth morons want.

Joe Biden will nominate former secretary of state John Kerry for climate czar in his presidential cabinet, the Biden-Harris transition team announced on Monday. If approved by the Senate, Kerry would fill the post of “Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.” The position would be the first post in a presidential national security cabinet to deal with climate change. “America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” Kerry wrote in a Twitter post. “I’m proud to partner with the President-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown wants residents to call the police on their neighbors over violations of the state’s latest coronavirus shutdown, which includes a six-person limit on in-home gatherings. The temporary “freeze,” which went into effect Wednesday, restricts indoor at-home and social gatherings to six people from no more than two households, with no exceptions for Thanksgiving dinner get-togethers. In a Friday virtual interview with KGW-TV, Ms. Brown agreed that Oregonians should contact authorities if they see their neighbors hosting more than six people.

What was Joe Biden thinking for his choice of climate-change ambassador extraordinaire? John Kerry is one of the biggest gasbags in American politics, singlehandedly responsible for massive amounts of terrible emissions. People have been laughing at him since Yale, when Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau was zinging his pretentious, vacuous self-promotion. We look forward to the anti-carbon lectures from a guy who travels the globe on private jets and luxury yachts. Set aside his deer-in-the-headlights loss as Democrats’ presidential nominee in 2004.

Former President Barack Obama continues to be the very embodiment of the Democratic leadership and project his own failings and political venom on President Donald Trump and his supporters. He demonstrated as much in a recent “60 Minutes” interview that focussed on his latest memoir, and was laced with bitterness for the Trump phenomenon. He is as adamant as ever to insist Americans reside with him in “Barack’s World,” a sort of alternate universe where Obama’s version of the truth is the only one that really matters. Sure, there might be competing versions of that reality, but can you really trust them when you know the source

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told MSNBC on Monday she believes a Joe Biden administration should open an investigation into President Trump once he leaves office. "Do you support possibly investigating Donald Trump, his administration, after he leaves office on January 20th? President-Elect Joe Biden’s chief of staff has said over the weekend the administration would basically allow, and I’m reading here, the attorney general to make a determination. But we know privately, Joe Biden said he kind of wants to move on from this," host Yasmin Vossoughian said.

Trump’s legal team has ditched Sidney Powell, who has played a starring role in Trump’s post-election effort by broadcasting lunatic conspiracy theories. Apparently the fact that Powell has shared none of her alleged evidence with anyone in Trump’s orbit finally made Trump’s attorneys doubt the promised emergence of a Kraken, even though they brought her to spout her poisonous absurdities at the RNC press conference last week. Powell has been interviewed by a bunch of high-profile right-wing media figures over the last two weeks, all of whom credited her. Do any of them mind that she evidently misled them? If so, it’d be good to hear it.
