Republican Party officials from across the country are not blaming President Trump for the party‘s defeats in Georgia’s runoffs but instead are rallying to make election security its top priority in the next cycle. At the Republican National Committee Winter Meeting in Amelia Island, Florida, party officials remained steadfast Wednesday in support of Mr. Trump and his remake of the party, despite the election setbacks that gave Democrats a Senate majority and complete control of the levers of power in Washington.(Snip) Republican Party officials embraced Mr. Trump‘s claims that ballot fraud and election irregularities marred the Nov. 3 vote. They are organizing

I don't think I will be sending money to the RNC anytime soon. I think they could have done more to back Trump! Maybe could use new Leadership. We will see what they do!

Wasted a lot of money, I really couldn't justify, this time round. In the future I will give to whoever Donald Trump says deserves it. Otherwise get lost!

The RNC has a four-year history of undermining Trump. They did nothing after the election was stolen and even worse, denied that it happened. I'm done with them. Californication, here we come.

Well, I escaped from California last year and allow me to explain to you why "fixing voter fraud" is NOT going to make any difference ever again. It's because they will now flood the entire country with millions more who will vote "D" after being granted amnesty and voting rights. When I left California, there was no longer any statewide election where i even had any non-Democrat I could vote for. They changed the rules so only the two top primary vote getters (always two Democrats) could run in the final election. So the Republicans think they're going to win back the House and Senate in 2022 without Trump? They have no idea what the Democrat/Communist strategy really is. There is no way this will ever be fixed through the ballot box. Check out Venezuela for how their "elections" keep going.

I will step up and take full responsibility for the hated opinion of the day. And yes, I voted for Trump twice and would do so again. Trump was brilliant legislatively but his personality made him his own worst enemy. Up until the very end he made it all about him. Frankly it is grating and cringe worthy. Destroying the Republican Party may make you feel righteous and pure but it is exactly what Democrats were going for. They have not only taken over the federal government, they have successfully separated the voters from their only competition (as lame as the GOP can be). Sorry but I’m not seeing how that helps us.

We have the majority of state legislators. They could correct all the crazy election laws and get rid of companies like Dominion. Maybe then Republicans would stand a chance of winning another election. I am going to change my affiliation to Independent.

If you still belong to the Republican Party after this fiasco then you must really enjoy sadists. The GOP will say anything to get your dollars and your vote but will not, read my lips, will not follow thru with action. Once again they take your money and run away with their tail between their legs. They can do this because so many folk stick with them, come hell or high water. BTW, that is all you get with the GOP, hell and high water. They will not change as long as you keep voting for them. So what can you do? Start by not sending these millionaires your hard earned money. Good grief, talk about a con job. We only donate to local folk that we know. Understand that the American government is corrupt, from top to bottom. With that understanding, rely on God, family and friends to bring you happiness and success. Do not rely on the government. They do not love you or care about you. You cannot beat DC so make your hometown your battlefield and make sure you are active in local civic events. Leave DC to the vultures that corrupt everything they touch. Have a blessed day folks.

And I will step up and stand beside you #13. President Trump’s accomplishments in his first three years were unprecedented. Then the virus and he got rolled by Fauci and the Democrats. We watched our cities burn, stores looted, people died and the police stood down. Antifa and BLM were given a pass to create chaos. Was election fraud truly any great surprise? And the Republicans in Congress and the Executive Branch stood down. We were warned that it was a Republic for as long as we could keep it. Well we lost it and it all happened on Trump’s watch. He did not engender loyalty. Even his appointments to the Supreme Court stood down when called upon. You are darned right I’m angry. I am truly appreciative for all that President Trump did. I am devastated by what he didn’t do.

Wise up, folks. You've been supporting a fraud, the UNIPARTY. The Georgia elections really don't matter. You'll get what the UNIPARTY gives...and that's the game. It's been somewhat disrupted over the past four years, but it's back to business as usual already. Now, go out and water that liberty tree with blood...or, take over your local and state Republican parties to effect changes, taking away the chimera of Republican "conservatism". Or, is that asking too much?

Battered wives often take drastic action to deliver themselves from their abusers. That's US today. We've put up a lot, we've held our noses and voted for you, but today, we're done.

I can't see any reason to vote anymore. The country will be flooded with immigrants. The votes will be harvested. The election counts will go on until the Democrats are ahead. There will be no voter id, signature verifications. Republicans will not be allowed into the polling stations. The Democrats will count the votes. I am not wasting my time on a vote that does not matter.

I hear all the disillusionment and anger Repliers are feeling. I share it. But for the sake of the freedom and safety of our descendants, we must gather our thoughts and plan "what next." Andrea Widburg has an excellent "first" path forward (American Thinker --Where Do We Go From Here?); and I hope to read many more soon. To me, President Trump has been the best in our history... I pray for him and his family... now we must never give up and continue his fight against those who are bent on owning/destroying our beautiful nation. Bless Lucianne for giving us a platform to express our feelings!

Election security IS the right message. It is the only way to reunify the country. btw it is also the only way for Trump to win in 2024. He would win a fair election. Election security is the only way forward. Let's fight together with sincere Democrats to do that.

No money ever again, not one thin dime!! On an anecdotal note, my 80 year old mom, a lifelong Republican and someone who voted every time the polls opened, is changing her voter registration from Republican to Independent thanks to the GOPs cowardice. The GOP will find that the number of voters who will vote for their candidates regardless of character and honor are magnitudes smaller than the mindless Democrat horde.... and we aren't playing a rigged game anymore.

It's not the state of politics that is so distressing as we near the end of the Trump presidency, it is the state of the country and how our country has been left wide open to the naked ambitions of the hard left. The aftermath of the fraudulent election could not have been handled more poorly, as incoherent legal lurching have only resulted in democrats/communists poised to control all of the levers of our federal government as the US is re-made. The myth of an armed, determined, patriotic American core has been shattered. Blame the GOP but by no means should you question whether too many eggs were placed in the basket of a single human and a handful of celebrity lawyers.

The GOP is focused on one thing: raising money. Their principles are gone. Ronna McDaniel should have forced republican lawmakers to support Trump by threatening to withhold funds. She probably secretly hated Trump too. I am so angry. Any republican that did not stand up for Trump (and Us!) yesterday will never get my vote or money. Not that voting is going to matter ever again. We are only beginning to comprehend the deep trouble America is in.

The Republicans want to be in the minority. They don’t want the pressure of having to listen to their constituents. It’s easier to say “the Democrats are in charge”, we tried to stop’t but couldn’t because you didn’t give us enough Republicans in the House or Senate. They don’t get that we understand the game, and it isn’t going to play anymore. Our government no longer has the consent of the governed. It’s going to take far worse than the Antifa-led attack on the capitol for them to get it apparently.

When the RNC tries to jam Romney down our throats in 2024 (or a Romney/Bush/McCain clone) and they can't fill a high school gym for rallies perhaps they will understand that without a candidate who connects with voters they will be SOL. If they are stupid enough to send me a begging letter with a prepaid postage envelope in it I thoroughly intend to stuff it with enough paper to force them to have to eat extra postage to get it back.

I call BS. The RNC is definitely turning on Trump. And Fox.....I can't say what I think of those filthy liars on a polite site. I checked their online page this morning....and they intentionally LIE with their "4 Dead in DC riots" headline. I was surprised, the incompetent fools in the Capitol had shot one innocent woman, what the heck else went on? If you read far enough down you find that 3 people had 'medical emergencies' and died, probably older folks who had heart attacks, I would guess. NOTHING AT ALL to do with their lying "riot" claim. I saw NO riot. No punches thrown, I saw NO fires set, I saw people surging forward, pushing and shoving a bit as the police shoved them, but I did not see one fist raised by a demonstrator, nothing thrown. I saw no riot. The Enemedia, including Fox LIES.

This entire presidency, but most particularly the stolen election response by Repubcapons reminds me of a movie called 'Serpico'. The only honest cop on the narcotics squad is set up by his 'partners' to be gunned down in a drug raid, in order to keep the goodies flowing. I believe this is what happened. Sure, the fix was in, but the fragging by his 'comrades' was planned and deliberate.

Congratulations RNC. You have managed to take the utter failure the complete ineffectiveness of the Republican Party in NY state, and spread that incompetence and corruption to the entire nation. You are forever done, gone, meaningless. Oh, you will continue to exist, even if Soros has to bankroll you. The chinarats will need someone to be the scapegoats for every elected office. Some of the most convincing liars will be allowed to win, just to make it sort of seem real and legitimate. Of course those RINOS will always vote with the chinarats when it counts. It might take a few years, maybe even a decade before the USA is absolutely broken.

With friends like the RNC who needs enemies. Trump helped a lot of them in their campaigns and this how they rewarded him. They let the seal go through. Well, I'm seriously considering either changing my party affiliation to independent or conservative. I think my days are numbered as a member of the GOP. I never thought the swamp was as deep as it is but it seems they're all in it up to their necks. And that's democrats and republicans. Our country is in big trouble.

Steve Bannon's podcast has been removed from YouTube just hours after Rudy Giuliani appeared on the show blaming the MAGA mob riot that left five dead on the Democrats for 'censoring and suppressing' Trump supporters. The YouTube account for Bannon's War Room podcast was taken down Friday for violating the platform's Terms of Service, according to the Washington Examiner. Giuliani, Donald Trump's personal attorney and the man who spearheaded his failed legal battle to overturn the presidential election, had appeared on the show earlier Friday where he defended Wednesday's rioters who stormed the US Capitol.

Twitter on Friday suspended the accounts of President Trump’s allies, former Gen. Mike Flynn and lawyer Sidney Powell, who backed his claims that fraud handed victory to President-elect Joe Biden. The action follows the Wednesday attack on the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters after Trump told them to “fight like hell” to persuade Congress to overturn Biden’s win. Powell recently claimed that Trump offered her a White House job to investigate voter fraud, but that senior White House staff—fearful of her wild claims of fraud—proceeded to block her from Trump’s orbit.(Snip) A Twitter spokesperson cited their links to the QAnon

An investigation has been launched into a luxury Florida nursing home accused of giving out coronavirus vaccines to wealthy donors before its staff and residents. MorseLife Health System CEO Keith Myers allegedly sent a personal email offering the COVID-19 shot to donors and members of the Palm Beach Country Club, whose foundation has donated at least $75,000 to MorseLife since 2015, according to a Washington Post report. New Jersey-based developer David Mack, who is a member of various MorseLife boards as well as chairman of the country club foundation’s board, has also been accused in the plot.

Hunter Biden, now under investigation for suspected tax fraud, owed a “substantial” amount to the IRS in 2018, apparently for 2017 and prior years when he was receiving regular income from a Ukrainian oligarch and Chinese firms tied to the Communist Party, an email shows. The October 2018 email from his certified public accountant to Mr. Biden, son of President-elect Joseph R. Biden, showed there was miscommunication between the CPA and Hunter. It also shows the IRS had been assessing Hunter Biden late fees for unpaid taxes. The CPA told him “The taxes owed are substantial” and listed $600,000 in personal taxes

Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr soundly denounced the Republican president for Wednesday’s incitement of the #MAGA mob attack on Congress as a “betrayal of his office.” The onetime unflinching Trump loyalist trashed his ex-boss for encouraging thousands of his loyal supporters to storm the capitol. “Orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable,” Barr said in a statement to the Associated Press. His comments come a day after angry and armed protesters broke into the U.S. Capitol, forcing Congress members to halt the ongoing vote to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s election and then flee from the House and Senate chambers.

Mexico reported a record number of new COVID cases Wednesday, with 13,345 people testing positive for coronavirus. Due to a lack of testing throughout the country, that number is likely far lower than the true number of people infected, the Associated Press reported. If 13,345 were an accurate number, it would pale in comparison to U.S. daily records. California, which has less than a third of Mexico’s population, reported more than 29,000 positive tests Wednesday, a significant decrease compared to previous days. Mexico also recorded 1,165 deaths from COVID-19 on Wednesday, according to the AP. National authorities have recorded 130,000 COVID deaths

In what’s certain to be seen as early jockeying for a potential 2024 presidential run, former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley drew a clear line of separation with President Trump while taking care not to draw Trump’s ire or offend his millions of supporters. In a speech to the Republican National Committee on Thursday, Haley said Trump’s words and actions since the election “will be judged harshly by history,” according to The Washington Free Beacon.The former Republican governor of South Carolina served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 2017 to 2018 in the Trump administration and didn’t hold back in commenting on what has transpired since the election

It may be weeks before we fully understand the fallout from the January 6, 2021 storming of the Capitol building. (snip) I saw three young white men board the [Metro] train with dark clothes and skeleton face masks. My immediate concern was that these were Antifa thugs who would give us trouble (snip) The main difference that struck me as unusual during this rally (apart from the three young men who boarded the train) was the frequent smell of marijuana.

Now that the Georgia runoffs are over, let’s talk about Donald Trump. When we really needed all hands on deck in Georgia, Trump was a wrecking ball. He went down to Georgia and insulted everyone, refusing to talk about anything but himself. Based on his rally speech this week, Trump apparently thinks he won the November election because there was a red wave for everyone except him. How else could all those Republicans win congressional seats on his “coattails,” while he lost?

Sen.

A bill reintroduced in the House this week to create a commission to examine reparations for the African American descendants of slavery is being seen by many as an early test of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ proclaimed commitment to tackling structural oppression. (Snip) “Given the role that Black people played in the election, getting him nominated and saving his campaign — there’s no reason they shouldn’t support this bill,” Mary Frances Berry, a professor of history at the University of Pennsylvania, said of Biden and Harris. “This is one of the best ways to make good

Beware, 75 million Trump voters.The media is calling for your ideological “cleansing” of Trump thought.In a column and tweet, ABC’s well-respected political director Rick Klein made the call after yesterday’s pro-Trump riots inside the halls of Congress.It is a sentiment throughout much of the political media and among Democrats who are also pointing an accusing finger at aides to President Trump who are resigning before their jobs end on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 13 days. Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.

"This president should not hold office one day longer." Schumer joins a growing contingent of lawmakers from both parties to call for Trump's removal, either by using the 25th amendment or through impeachment.

January 6th’s events are being seized on as a game-changer, leading to calls to invoke the 25th Amendment, calls to impeach and remove President Trump, and discrediting Trump, his supporters, and conservatism. It has distracted attention from issues around the legitimacy of voting procedures in several key states, and guaranteed the Electoral College vote just before 4 AM that ratified Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’s inauguration as president and vice president. Applying the classic legal question “cui bono?” (“who benefits?”), it is clear that Democrats, anti-Trump establishment Republicans, the leftist media, and TDS sufferers all are victorious.
