Original Article

Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Friday was unanimously reelected to steer the GOP’s national party committee for another two years. In a speech to the RNC committee members who reelected her and other top GOP officials, McDaniel vowed to help the Republican Party regain the House and Senate majorities in the 2022 midterms and had a warning, saying: "Democrats, get ready, buckle your seatbelts. We’re coming."

Her quote that Democrats better get ready. Her words meant as a warning are so funny I do not know what to say. The GOP is so over but let’s let them pretend they are relevant. Patriots will depend on God and faithful conservative and God-fearing family and friends. We certainly do not look to the Republicans for help.

Not with my vote. What did she or the rest of GOP "leadership" do about fraud? What did they say about 8 months of dem riots? But they sure were quick to condemn when a mix of angry patriots and violent sharifs psychotics went into the capitol building. Dead party. I hope Trump starts a new one. This one is hopeless.

No way no how there be any money from me and mine or votes to the gop! I will select and support candidates singly and will think at 3x b4 sending anyone even associated with gop and kind of supporter. FYI, even donations directly to candidates benefit the party because they have to tithe the party some percentage.

Doesn’t matter. The Republican Party is dead. She’s doing it again because no one else is willing to captain a ghost ship. What’s she going to do, send out a mailer saying, “we know we let them steal the election, but we have to now look past that and to the future. Blah, blah blah.” On January 6, the Republican Party died. They may not know it yet, they may not believe it yet, but unless they are spending more money than the Dems do funding the Dominion fraud, I can’t fathom how they ever win another election. I know I wouldn’t vote for a candidate from either party as janitor.

Praise her for her national down-ballot organizational savvy - when the whole world was predicting a blue wave (which never materialized).

The RNC is glad to have money from middle Americans, but it's not that important. They depend on big money donors - super rich, big corporations, special interest groups. And the big donors want elected officials who represent them not the middle or working class Americans or lower income people seeking middle class. They can't wait for the next Romney-Ryan ticket. My guess for 2024 they'll want "conservative" Nikki Haley combined with some "moderate" governor (Ducey -AZ or Sununu - NH)

#23--her silence in the period after 11/3 was deafening. She was MIA when it was her place to stand with the President and help marshal the forces needed. Trump made the down ballot victories possible, not her. (Common sense should tell you that a loser candidate has no shirt tails whatsoever--as demonstrated by Biteme and Kamaltoes) She may not be as bad as her uncle, but that's hardly a ringing endorsement.

Actually, considering what she is working with in a system that has become so corrupt, I think she HAS done a pretty good job. The problem is the whole system is rigged to tempt even the most honest people to sell out. The power structure, with influence from big lobbyists, special interest money and from other wealthy and powerful magnates, is the problem and it also (more often than not) attracts greedy people to enter politics. Unfortunately, even those who have good intentions and truly want to serve the public get sucked into the corruption. It doesn't matter what party affiliation a politician has. Party affiliation alone only dictates values and ideology. They all get pulled into a dirty situation now. That is why you see a lot more corruption in the Democratic party because of their values and ideology reflect their moral views. Unfortunately, even normally good people with good values are tempted by the system. The only way to fix it is to cut the ties between our politicians and those big money influencers and to investigate and prosecute all cases of power abuse. Financial audits should be required. There is no reason they should become wealthy simply by being a public servant...and they all do. We need to seal all the loopholes that allow (even clandestinely) situations of quid pro quo, bribery, etc. Only once you take away the enticement and the incentives for self-enrichment will our representatives truly work for the country and the people.

#33 and #36, from Dec 3rd: “McDaniel, in her letter, echoed Trump's rhetoric about the election and said she would step up the RNC's voting-related litigation efforts and form a committee on election integrity "to continue battling the Democrats' unprecedented attempts to change election laws." (From “The Detroit Free Press”) She DID speak out for President Trump. Don’t jump all over her, when your true vitriol and gnashing of teeth should be aptly aimed at the milquetoast Republican legislators.

To have any luck in future elections McDaniels had better cast a weathers eye on the State level Republican Parties as those are the entities that allowed the Democrats to make changes in State election laws and procedures that greatly benefited the Democrats before and during the Presidential election without those changes ever going through the State legislatures. Those are also the entities that keep nominating RINO’s to the US Congress. Right now it is in the State level Republican parties where the roots of what happened in the November election were allowed to get started.

One of the many bits of fallout from Wednesday’s riot was the decision by Twitter to permanently ban President Trump’s account, as Allahpundit covered yesterday. While Jack Dorsey’s outfit has deleted some of Trump’s tweets in the past, pasted warnings on others, and even temporarily suspended his account, this was the first time the ban hammer had been swung at a public official in such a forceful and permanent fashion. Their stated reason for doing so was, at best, debatable in terms of any rational justification. Yes, they have rules against promoting violence, but contrary to some of AP’s analysis,

For a half-century, the trend in political culture has been inexorably in one direction: toward the steady loosening and eventually the near-obliteration of media filters. If someone has a voice that other people want to hear, that voice is going to be heard. No smug editor at the New York Times or damn anchorman at CBS News is going to get in the way. Who the hell elected them, after all, to decide what points of view were worthy of dissemination, what facts or rumors or even flat falsehoods should reach average citizens, who could decide for themselves what to make of it?

Wednesday’s mob assault on Capitol Hill was shocking and brazen: Hundreds of MAGA-hat-wearing rioters broke into the seat of American democracy. They stormed the halls, looting property and assaulting law enforcers, all in service of an absurd political demand: reversing the outcome of an election. Now where had I witnessed such scenes before? The answer: in blue-governed cities in my native Pacific Northwest throughout last summer and into the fall and winter. The right-wing political violence was met with universal rebuke from politicians of both parties and the media. But many of those who are loudest in condemning the Capitol Hill riot went radio-silent

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters. As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent. On Friday, Twitter permanently banned hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump supporters and prominent allies — before banning the president himself. Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen. Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood. Countless smaller accounts that supported the president were also getting suspended in a seemingly constant rate. The same has been happening over on Facebook and Instagram.
