Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is signaling support for the House Democratic impeachment effort that includes an article charging the president with 'incitement of insurrection.'The view of the GOP powerbroker emerged shortly before Rep. Liz Cheney, a member of the House GOP leadership, announced that she would vote for impeaching President Trump. 'On January 6, 2021 a violent mob attacked the United States Capitol to obstruct the process of our democracy and stop the counting of presidential electoral votes. This insurrection caused injury, death and destruction in the most sacred space in our Republic,' wrote Cheney,

Nonsense. After quoting no one but loser RINO Cheney, burning half way down is this, "It was not immediately clear how McConnell might vote on impeachment". What a bunch of bs. How could it not be clearl how he'd vote yet he wants him impeached and convicted? DM(UK) = bird cage filler.

Daily Mail is obviously trying to instigate a reaction and not a peaceful one. On Seb Gorka's program today, he was attacked physically not once but twice yesterday. What the radical left wants us to do is violently attack one of them. Stay frosty--this is revealing who our friends really are.

Just received an email from Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the National Republican Party. I sent her one back telling her I wasn't interested in the party anymore since they couldn't support President Trump. President Trump worked very hard for us, We the People, and not to fill his bank account.. As a side, I won't be joining the USGA this year because of the stunt they pulled about the golf tournament. I won't join until the tournament is back at his course in NJ.

They are the ones who have embarrassed the Republican party and should be thrown out. The only guy who has represented what the 74,000,000 people who really care is President Donald John Trump. I really fear what the swamp members have planned for our country. It's unfortunate that I have discovered that many so called Republicans are also members of the swamp.

GOP traitors are worse than democrats. Trump has clearly exposed the depth of the swamp, and that democrats and republicans are first and foremost uniparty swamp creatures. The only question now is: what will the name of the new party be that is formed by millions of disgusted republicans. Freedom Party? Constitution Party?

Clearly the Republicans in the Senate hope to remain in the minority - presumably more lucrative from their perspective than being blamed for stopping progress by both sides. The real question is whether their grift has legs when they are a very, very small minority, or an insignificant 3rd party.

Brit Hume was just on Tucker Carlson's show talking about how "real Republicans" are disgusted with Trump and want him gone. I'm guessing his definition of "real Republicans" is the ones who reside in the beltway. The Republicans I know (out here in flyover country) are livid at the Republican party, not Trump.

The state Democratic Party and some voters sued the Republican-governed state, arguing that by treating voters differently by age, the Texas law violated the U.S. Constitution’s 26th Amendment guarantee of the right to vote for American citizens age 18 and above.”

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says to stem the spread of COVID-19, all Americans should wear a mask. The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes. (Snip) Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., wants a song about faith and resilience long revered in the Black community to become the national hymn and help toward uniting the country after centuries of racial turmoil. Clyburn, the House majority whip, plans to introduce a measure as early as this week that would make “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, the national hymn and give it a special place alongside the country’s anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." “To make it a national hymn, I think, would be an act of bringing the country together. It would

Right-wing pundit Rush Limbaugh turned 70 years old Tuesday — a landmark he wasn’t expecting to see. While hitting seven-o is a big birthday for anyone, Limbaugh said almost a year ago that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Shortly before Christmas, an emotional Limbaugh said he was grateful to be outliving his doctors’ prognosis. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October and then to November and then to December and yet here I am,” Limbaugh told listeners. A column in his hometown publication the Southeast Missourian praised Limbaugh, a Cape Girardeau native, as “the first to develop a prominent place for conservatives in media”

New York City is canceling contracts with the Trump Organization, Mayor de Blasio said Wednesday, citing the commander-in-chief’s incitement of the deadly siege of the U.S. Capitol last week. “The President incited a rebellion against the United States government that killed five people and threatened to derail the constitutional transfer of power,” de Blasio said in a statement. “The City of New York will not be associated with those unforgivable acts in any shape, way or form, and we are immediately taking steps to terminate all Trump Organization contracts.” The announcement came as the House of Representatives was set to impeach the president on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON — A day before rioters stormed Congress, an FBI office in Virginia issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to Washington to commit violence and "war," according to an internal document reviewed by The Washington Post that contradicts a senior official's declaration that the bureau had no intelligence indicating that anyone at last week's pro-Trump protest planned to do harm. A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex's tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up
