Republican Advantages

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 1/14/2021 4:56:49 AM

Despite the national focus on the political battles in D.C., the state election results provide very positive news for Republicans. Republicans increased their trifectas (governor and legislature control) to 23 states (24 with Alaska if they ever finish counting). There are twelve states with divided control, and seven of those have Republican majorities in the legislature. Despite the Democrat huge advantage in money and media support, Republicans increased their number in Congress and in statehouses. This gives the Republicans a deep bench of intelligent, honest, and capable elected representatives at the state and local level.

Unfortunately "honest and intelligent" is not a resume enhancer in DC.

So why can't they get voting under control and give us honest, fair elections? And why can't they pass laws to severely penalize or restrict Big Tech if they unfairly restrict the free speech rights of the citizens in those states? If Poland and Australia can protect free speech why can't America's states?

The Republican Party has lost me forever unless people start going to jail for voter fraud. I have heard the endless threats of endless investigations all my life with no Democrats going to jail. If the State Legislatures don't stand up and dismantle the illegal voting in their states I am done with the Republican Party. Maybe Trump will start a new party? He could call it the "Impeached Party" I would join!

Yeah, that didn't help us this Election. It seems even when we have tor Republican Legislators, Governor and Sec. of State, we still can't stop the Fraud in that State! Apparently, Money talks! So even the threat of voting them out next time around doesn't work nearly as good as a Big Check!

We, Republicans, have to primary any Republican who is weak kneed, we need new blood. We need NEW Conservatives who have that fire in their belly to make things right. The Republican party is full of elected officials who were once fire breathing Conservatives, but after years of working with dim-0KKKrats, have turned into them. We MUST term limit our own people, while retaining the collected knowledge of how politics is done in washington. Say what you will and for myself, it is a lot about peelosi, but she knows how to get her dirty work done. She has been there long enough to know every trick.

It's a little hard to take solace in republican advantages. First, the set of those calling themselves republicans contains uniparty swamp rats so I'm not sure counting their numbers as an advantage gives me that warm feeling other than pissing myself. Then there's the wet noodles who don't have the spheroids to even matter. Then we are down to a handful of Patriots. Give me that count and then tell me how giddy I should feel, I'll probably still prefer pissing myself. My only hope is that they overplayed their hand and that forces yet to be seen in large numbers are rising. And I'm not talking about storming the state capitol.

I don’t care about the Commies or the Puke parties! It seems to me that if a new Trump party is established, it would have the advantage of voter numbers with 80 million. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that more voters than the other 2 could garner?

None of this matters if you can't win elections. Setting aside the fact that there may never be another free and relatively fair election, Donald Trump showed republicans how to win. Half the party said "no thanks, go away".

The numbers are not any where near as important as is the fidelity to the rule of law and the Liberty of the people. As we have seen recently the so called Republicrats are just as ignorant or in contempt of the Constitution as are the Demonrats. The only thing standing between you and tyranny is YOU. History holds the answer. Learn the truth, farts and all. That truth will no be found in academia.

I changed my voter registration from Republican to Independent the other day. Like many others throughout the world, our country is now a one-party country. It is not yet the Communist or Socialist Party; it is the Uniparty, and the reason there are so many Republicans voted in this past election throughout the country is because of President Trump's coattails. Unlike Biden who had no coattails, but furtive people filling out ballots throughout the land without having time to check the down-ballot boxes, the Republicans have a bench because of Trump and his policies these last four years. I hope everyone changes their registration to Independent because whenever we needed a Republican - other than Trump and a handful of other good people, the Uniparty R's let us down. The last occasion when that happened was when Mike Pence thought more about the Uniparty than he did about the Republican voters and did not request a delay of ten days to authenticate the electoral college voters. Actually, the Uniparty has become the Potemkin Party - just a facade with nothing behind it.

What a joke. Any Republican "advantages" disappeared with the final Demon-Rat mastery of election theft in November. And the Republi-Can'ts have nobody to blame but themselves for allowing it to happen without even putting up a fight!!! The Demon-Rats may allow a few Republicans to win Congressional seats just to keep up the facade of "fair elections". But no Republican will ever will a major election for president or where they may get a majority of House or Senate seats. The Demon-Rats mastered "finding" the exact number of votes they need to win any election from now on!!! Add all of us that see the GOP as totally dead to us, and, no, the Republi-Can't Party will never had an "advantage" again!!!

Joe Biden’s Weird Version
of Goebbels’ Big Lie

Posted by Magnante 1/15/2021 9:57:17 AM Post Reply
At his press conference on July 8, Joe Biden offered a rather bizarre interpretation of history, in which he likened Ted Cruz and his challenge to some electoral votes to Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels and the “Big Lie.” Biden illustrated his point by referring to the Allied bombing of Dresden in February 1945 in which, he said, “250 or 2,500 people” were killed. (snip) As an historian I am flummoxed at Biden’s illustration of Dresden as a Big Lie. (snip) Except the Nazi Big Lie was not about Dresden. Rather it was about the British and American bombing of Hamburg in 1943.

“The Republican nominee for president will be that candidate who best learns that there is no future in apologizing,” I wrote in a June 10, 2015, column.

Americans are expected to be aghast at the events in Washington, D.C. on January 6. A vicious mob of revolutionary Trump supporters, we are told, swarmed the nation’s capital and, in an act of insurrection, unlawfully entered the hallowed halls of Congress. Unlike the “fiery but mostly peaceful protests” that were reported over the summer, the media have been quick to claim that this was not a “mostly peaceful” protest (despite the protestors being, by any estimation, mostly peaceful), but the entire event is being categorized as a bona fide riot that had been fueled by Donald Trump’s irresponsible and untruthful rhetoric.

In 2020, Democrat riots caused billions of dollars in property damage, destroyed historic sites, and assaulted and murdered dozens of people. Meanwhile, on January 6, President Trump asked patriots to walk peacefully to the Capitol to cheer politicians who, copying Democrat, objected to Electoral College votes. Some hotheads (encouraged by Antifa plants?) entered the Capitol, as Democrat protesters have done many times before. This time, though, Democrats demand that Trump leave office immediately under the 25th Amendment or be impeached and that all Trump-supporting politicians across America be expelled from office.

A strong majority of GOP voters view themselves as Republicans rather than devotees of President Trump's Make America Great Again, or "MAGA," movement, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Among the Republican voters, 74% consider themselves "more of a Republican," while 19% see themselves as "part of MAGA nation." The numbers could reflect the fallout from last week's Capitol riot, which has been broadly characterized as being led by Trump's MAGA devotees, a key part of the president's base, helped him become president in 2016.
