Now is the time, says former U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, for the Republican Party to transform to survive. A day after the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time, Corker told Knox News the party must rid itself of the Trumpism that has taken over the GOP. “Look, there's no one that feels more strongly about the fact that Republicans ought to celebrate some of the policy gains that have occurred,” he said, “but never ever, ever allow someone like President Trump to serve again, certainly to become the Republican nominee or be president of the

The New American populace should never again see more than a dime's worth of difference between the two factions of the uniparty, says a classic Democrat-Republican who's eager to get back to business.

that's right Bob old boy, the Republican Party will be in the ash heap of history by the end of 2021 and you and the rest of your RINO traitors had better find the light to find your common sense. you never were much of a Senator, anyway. sour grapes only make bad wine which becomes vinegar.

These RINO's never say what it is that Pres. Trump has done that is so bad. He lowered our taxes; he produced a strong economy; he created low unemployment; he made NATO nations pay their own way; he didn't let China walk all over us; he worked hard on Middle East Peace and succeeded; he was nominated four times for the Nobel Peace Prize; he defended religious liberty; he worked on prison reform; he defended our borders; he defeated ISIS in Syria and strengthened our military. So tell me again, what the heck are you talking about Mr.Corker!!!!!!

What's that Sen. Cork? Are you saying that mere private citizens, not to mention billionaires, need not apply for the job of President? Is that sacred job the exclusive property of the "professional political class" of electeds? Is it the promotion path for Senators only? I bet your tickled pink that TWO U.S. Senators stole the election and will be placed in the hall of honor among Senators. Corker is dead to me.

I dearly miss living in East Tennessee, G-d’s country for certain. But I definitely do NOT miss some of the Uni-Party Republicrats. Like Sens. Corker and Alexander. Among others. But then, living in Ohio, we have to put up with scum bums Repiblicrats like Senator Portman, Goobernor DeSlime or his predecessor Kasich. To "perdition" with the GOP and the GOP-e!! The GOP has fully proved itself as being much less than worthless. Heck, I'm told that even a truckstop hooker will generally perform as promised. A Republican politician fails even that standard.

So another globalist RINO and ex DC UniParty politician who hates Trump for attempting to kick over his financial apple cart has popped up telling all Republicans that they essentially should go back to being subservient to the Democrats as the permanent party of big government, and going back to filling their pockets and not giving a hoot about ordinary Americans. That’s not going to work any longer for the establishment Republicans as they have made enemies of millions of ordinary Republicans who were up to this point reliable Republican voters. That fact, plus the fact that the leftist and liberal Democrats who are going to use every trick in their leftist game book to knock out the wimpy Republicans in future elections as those Republicans continue to operate under Marquess of Queensbury rules as long as the remaining minority RINOs get their cut of the action.

here is why the establishment republicans hate Trump so strongly. He DID things they promised but could never get done, even when they controlled all 3 branches. He showed those things COULD be done and by example showed that the only reason why republicans could never get them done was because they didn't want them to get done. All they were was campaign slogans to get us to vote for the republican half of the uni-party. They were exposed as frauds.

Corker is done, just another scum RINO who shines Biden's shoes. This disaster will turn out to be another setup just like the Mueller investigation. Trump was successful because he is not tied to D.C. or the deep state. He was never part of their club. He couldn't be bought like the Clintons, Obama and Biden and he isn't owned by the media or foreign governments. Trump was the only man standing up for the American tax payer who has been robbed blind by the democratic communists and RINOs. This guy Corker is just another idiot without a spine. Got it..

It always amazes me that failed former Republican politicians who helped the Republicans lose the House and Senate majorities and never delivered on what they promised, ever, seem to they know what is best to regain control. Donald Trump is the first Republican in decades to put his money where his mouth is. He actually did what he said he would do. Where he failed, it was because of weak spined Republicans like Corker, McCain, Flake, and Romney. You may not like Trump's style, but you have to love the results! We don't need less Trump, we need more Republicans to be like Donald Trump!

A massive search was underway Friday after more than 100 undocumented immigrants jumped out of a refrigerated truck and fled into the woods in sub-freezing weather, Texas authorities said. The incident happened Thursday evening as Bexar County deputies were investigating a report of people running out of air inside a truck that was smuggling immigrants through the U.S.-Mexico border. When deputies arrived at the San Antonio-area gas station where the vehicle was parked, “a large crowd of people poured out of the truck and ran to the woods,” Sheriff Javier Salazar said. About 50 of them were located and found to be

Mayor de Blasio’s decision to paint “Black Lives Matter” on public streets doesn’t mean a pro-Donald Trump group can post its own message on the pavement, a judge ruled Thursday. Manhattan Federal Judge Lorna Schofield ruled that “Black Lives Matter” painted on Fifth Ave. outside Trump Tower and other streets over the summer constituted speech by government—and that the city’s decision to paint those words did not give others the right to paint messages of their own. That meant that the Virginia-based Women for America First did not have the right to paint: “Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!”

A British-Nigerian actress who was fired from a U.K. revival of “The Color Purple” over past homophobic comments—and later sued a theater and her former agents—has lost her legal battle. Seyi Omooba was cast to play the leading role in the celebrated musical at the Curve Theatre in Leicester, England, in 2019. Shortly after producers announced her as Celie—an African-American woman living in the South in the early 20th century who develops a romantic and sexual relationship with another woman—anti-LGBTQ comments she had posted on social media in 2014 became public. “I do not believe you can be born gay,

President Donald Trump turned down his former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley after she requested a meeting at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, according to a report. Politico’s Playbook reported details of the meeting request, citing a “source familiar” with the incident. Haley criticized Trump extensively in a Politico magazine article, even suggesting that his political relevance was over. “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far,” she said. “We need to acknowledge he let us down. He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him.”

“I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.” Thus spoke Nikki Haley -- former South Carolina governor, former ambassador to the UN, and now presidential aspirant -- exposing once again her self-serving bona fides. In denigrating Donald Trump, the establishment Republican ended up revealing to Trump’s loyal base of 75-80 million supporters just how much she is motivated by opportunism. Also, just how out of touch she is with the rank and file. Haley’s betrayal of President Trump took the form of a forceful condemnation: “We need to acknowledge he let us down.
