Original Article

Posted By: Dodge Boy, 1/17/2021 10:11:14 AM

Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) warned Friday that one third of Republican voters could leave the party if GOP senators vote in impeachment proceedings to convict President Trump. Paul made the comments in an interview on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle. The senator’s remarks come amid an increasing divide between congressional Republicans who oppose impeaching the president, and a smaller number who support the measure following the riots at the Capitol on January 6. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) is reportedly hopeful that Republicans can use impeachment to purge Trump from the GOP...


Senator, it will be a lot more than one third of us turning our backs on the pubbie party. Turtle, you are playing with fire, pal.

Vastly underestimated, I suspect. Tarring & feathering is likely to make a stylistic resurgence.

Vastly underestimating the anger of the voters Senator. But that is what happens when the country club republicans, aka cucks, aka Uniparty, refuse to listen or visit reality.

Rand doesn't understand that most of us have already left the party! The Republicans despicable silence in the face of a clearly stolen election has buried them! There may have been only a few hundred thousand people on the Mall on January 6th, but millions and millions of us were there in spirit! The GOP is dead to most of us. I already donated to Tom Norton who is primarying a RINO Rep.

Article says majority of Republicans support Trump. So, if they think they're going to grow the party by further angering 60% of the party, this is a great way to enrage people. Welcome to permanent minority party status.

There will be three political parties in America. The Democrats, The Republicans, and whatever the New party decides to name itself. Probably the Patriot Party, or the MAGA Party. The smallest and least effective of the three will be the Republicans. But they and the Democrats, if what I'm currently seeing follows to its end, will do, is attempt to label the GOP-spin-off, as traitors, and attempt to destroy them. We're headed for War. It's going to be fast, brutal, and may destroy the United States... All because of the greed of the Political Class. First you'll have the initial battles, which International powers will want to get involved in. Then Agriculture will suffer (See that damn Bill Gates) and cities will begin to starve. Millions WILL die.

I've already left the Republican party. I'm now officially an independent. Every "Republican" solicitation for money gets unsubscribed immediately. I took particular delight in unsubscribing from TWO Mitch McConnell lists.

(cont.) Will the millions of dead Americans from this conflict be worth it? I know that my family is not in a position to survive such a conflict. But even given our eventual deaths, I refuse to surrender to a bunch of self-appointed tyrants. So let loose the Dogs of War. If I am to die, let it have meaning in the Free people of a future America. Let the Tree of Liberty be enriched by our sacrifices rather than cut down and discarded by our foes.

If this goes to trial with any GOP participation whatever, the Republican party is over, done, and in flames. Any participation will guarantee an electoral disaster in '22 for Republicans. It's that simple. IF Schumer is stupid enough to try a former President, the Republicans should absolutely boycott this unconstitutional exercise. Chief Justice Earl Warren Roberts should have the sense to decline ito preside over an unconstitutional impeachment trial. Certainly, PDT shoud give no credence to this by offering nay defense whatever, not even communicating or responding in any fashion. Let this fool's game begin...

No, we will work to rid our Republican party of the fake republicans. To leave the party insures a Democratic win. We will not fall for that trap. Americas Voice is preparing a list of businesses that have punished Pres Trump and conservatives. They will make sure that we know who let us down.

A few days ago the radio station in Raleigh NC that carries Rush reported that close to 10k Republicans in NC had already changed their registration. Of course the report made it appear anti-Trump by attributing the voters’ motive as disgust with the “riot” in DC rather than disgust with the stolen election. We know better!

The "political class/career polititians/Uniparty" run this private little playground where they push around pawns and toy soldiers (us) for their own power games. ALL of them have exerted herculean effort to push DJT off the playground, and it worked. It was truly a massive conspiracy, and it required political, judiciary, media, and big tech cooperation. It also destroyed the United States. The Constitution has been torn asunder and is no longer in effect. Technically, NONE of us are bound by its rules anymore. We don't have a year remaining on our expiration date. With luck, the map of North America will look like the map of South America in a year or two, otherwise, unbound anarchy, death, and destruction. The United States will never arise from the ashes, the Chines will never allow it. And we HAVE been sold to the Chinese.

I object to Republican voters being referred to as "fans of DJT." We are not "fans" we are citizens and voters. To call us "fans" denigrates not only President Trump, likening him to a TV personality, but also the voters who supported him. I don't think we should give Republicans another chance. They failed us, turned on us. They did not condemn the BLM/Antifa rioters and the burning of cities enough while acting like the Republicans who entered the Capitol were violent thugs. They did not back the president when he came out of the White House to decry the burning of federal momunments. The cowered instead of joining him. Americans have every right to express their anger at their elected officials but they are being treated as terrorists. Democrats quickly bailed out their violent friends and put them back on the street to burn and loot again. Republicans should resist every little word that comes out of a Democrat mouth. They should not work across the aisle. They should introduce bills for election reform immediately and ensure that the rights of citizens to political speech and assembly are protected.

How about seeking the truth before rushing to judgment? That clearly was not done here. Each day yields more evidence, especially the timeline, that President Trump nor his people caused this riot. YES, some Trump supporters did some stupid things by getting riled up by ANTIFA and BLM agitators and going into the Capital. However, this was another "false flag" event to harm President Trump.

The party didn't support Trump in 2016. The party didn't fight for him in his first two years. And when the chips were down, they stabbed him in the back. When they finally had the chance to end Obama are, McCain killed it solely because it was personal. For 4 years, with the exception of a handful, the party never defended Trump. For the past few decades, the party paid lip service to the constitution, conservative principles and balancing the budget. The only thing that the party is good for is being the opposition party. When it comes to governing, they do so in fear of the minority.

Hey Rand I think they have already left your party!!! One Big problem the press and fake republicans like McConnell & McCarthy think they are leaving because of the Trump ... Wrong! When the 2 leaders fail to support the president it's time to move on & declare ourselves independents. The DC country club republicans never knew the people.... all they care is getting re-elected. The house members...majority of them ...are true representatives ...` the that's another story. The senate is the real old republican party who never leaves DC cocktail circuit.

E-Mail your Senator and let him/her know your feelings on their vote for Impeachment. Depending on who your Senator is, and depending on how soon they are up for re-election, they will pay attention to how you feel. If your Senator is Romney, Sasse or Murkowski, they will say "kiss off". The Others will probably pay attention to how many calls and e-mails they get. People like Susan Collins, who just won re-election probably won't care because she is getting to Retirement age and might just walk next time around!

Did some quick research and found the following. The Federalist Party came into being between 1792 and 1794 as a national coalition of bankers and businessmen. It failed because it supported Britain during the War of 1812 (profits over country). Most Whigs desired an alliance between government and private enterprise and hated Andrew Jackson (proto-TDS?). It failed because it appears they did not have core beliefs. Today's Republican Party is next.

That is because there just aren't that many Republicans left. Probably 50% of Republicans left the party after watching the Republi-Can't Party stab President Trump in the back repeatedly after November 3rd. So I could see another 1/3 leave, and the rest are just swamp creature RINO's.

The mask is off the Turtle and the Republican Senate. According to the Politico, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his lieutenants are warning Republicans not to object when the electors are certified on January 6th. McConnell warned Republican senators Tuesday during a private caucus call not to object to the election results on Jan. 6, according to two sources familiar with the matter. McConnell told his caucus that challenging the results would force Republicans to take a “terrible vote” because they would need to vote it down and appear against President Donald Trump.

A shocking video showing a 75-year-old nursing home patient in Michigan being viciously beaten prompted President Trump to express his shock, asking, “Is this even possible to believe?” “Can this be real? Where is this nursing home, how is the victim doing?” the president said on Twitter. The brutal beatdown took place at the Westwood Nursing Home in Detroit, where a 20-year-old fellow patient was caught on graphic video punching the helpless man in the face dozens of times, according to Detroit’s Fox 2.

President Trump has used emergency powers during the coronavirus pandemic to implement the kind of strict enforcement regime at the U.S. southern border he has long wanted, suspending laws that protect minors and asylum seekers so that the U.S. government can immediately deport them or turn them away. Citing the threat of “mass, uncontrolled cross-border movement,” the president has shelved safeguards intended to protect trafficking victims and persecuted groups, implementing an expulsion order that sends migrants of all ages back to Mexico in an average of 96 minutes. U.S. Border Patrol agents do not perform medical checks when they encounter people crossing into the country.

It is a sobering reminder of how successful the propaganda of the leftist media and higher education system has been when one realizes that socialism is viewed by nearly half of the millions of young Americans as a sociable way of life — a better way of life where they feel people work together for the good of everyone, where the wealth generated by the sweat of the worker...

Sen. Mitt Romney delivered perhaps the most thorough Republican rebuke of President Trump’s Syria withdrawal Thursday, calling Trump’s abandonment of the Kurds there “a bloodstain on the annals of American history.” But while that line will get a lot of play, there’s something else Romney said that shouldn’t escape notice. He also floated a theory about how Trump arrived at the decision: that he got bullied into it by Turkey and that he backed down.

Steve Cohen (TN) expressed concern Monday that the National Guard troops responsible for protecting Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day could constitute a threat because they included too many “white males” who voted for President Donald Trump. “The guard is 90-some-odd percent, I believe, male,” Cohen said in a Monday interview with CNN’s Jim Sciutto. “Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the guard, which is predominantly more conservative — I see that on my social media, and we know it. They’re probably not more than 25 percent of the

Editors, publishing agents and authors have signed-up to a letter in the hundreds, demanding the industry deny Donald Trump the publication of any post-presidential memoir. The letter, titled "No Book Deals for Traitors,” was signed by more than 250 editors, authors and publishing agents last week.(Snip) Among the letter’s signatories are staffers from the five biggest publishing houses, Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan. Mr Lyga told the Los Angeles Times in an email that publishers should “act to the dictates of their conscience and to the extent they are able to effect change,”

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is planning to cancel the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, and perhaps as soon as his first day, according to a source familiar with his thinking. President Donald Trump had made building the pipeline a central promise of his presidential campaign. Biden, who will be inaugurated on Wednesday, was vice president in the Obama administration when it rejected the project as contrary to its efforts to combat climate change.(Snip)The project, which would move oil from the province of Alberta to Nebraska, had been slowed by legal issues

Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) warned Friday that one third of Republican voters could leave the party if GOP senators vote in impeachment proceedings to convict President Trump. Paul made the comments in an interview on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle. The senator’s remarks come amid an increasing divide between congressional Republicans who oppose impeaching the president, and a smaller number who support the measure following the riots at the Capitol on January 6. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) is reportedly hopeful that Republicans can use impeachment to purge Trump from the GOP...

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every

During former President Bill Clinton’s testimony before a grand jury about his Oval Office shenanigans with 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the Philanderer in Chief shrewdly said, in response to a question, “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” In Apple CEO Tim Cook’s case, it depends on what his meaning of “that” is. More precisely, in the case of Apple’s de-platforming of conservative-leaning social media site Parler, it matters a hell of a lot what Cook’s meaning of “that” is, when he says of Parler: “We don’t consider that free speech.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) won’t be up for re-election until 2024, but she has seemingly already filed paperwork indicating she might run again.The 87-year-old U.S. Democrat from California filed the initial re-election paperwork with the Federal Election Commission last week, L.A. Magazine reported. A Feinstein rep reached out to L.A. Magazine to clarify what the FEC filings allegedly mean. “To be clear, Senator Feinstein has had a campaign committee since she took office, as all senators must. In order to keep this account active, the senator has to maintain filings with the FEC. Yesterday’s filings merely reflected an updated address,”

This past week, Texas State Historical Association chief historian Walter Buenger made two controversial assertions regarding the Alamo in a story published by USA Today. Although the battle has become a symbol of patriotism and freedom for many Texans and Americans, like the Confederate monuments erected after the Civil War, the myth of the Alamo has been used to “commemorate whiteness,” according to Walter L Buenger, Texas State Historical Association chair. The battle itself was relatively insignificant tactically speaking, but it gained recognition decades later in the 1890s as backlash to African Americans gaining more political power and Mexican immigration increasing

The last time I checked, this was the USA. A free country. A country where, when mobs of thugs were destroying Minneapolis, Portland, Kenosha, and other cities, the media reacted in horror at the suggestion that a few National Guard troops might help return calm for the residents trying to live peacefully in their homes, do business as much as possible in the circumstances, and stay afloat during a pandemic. As Portland’s Mayor Ted Wheeler said when offered federal troops to quell the violence, “This is not the America we want.” The very idea is repugnant! Now, I am seeing pictures of Washington DC preparing to inaugurate Biden

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday warned that “more ominous” strains of COVID-19 have emerged out of South Africa and Brazil. The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said they’re looking “very carefully” at the two new mutant variants in addition to another highly-contagious one that was first detected in the United Kingdom. “People need to realize there’s more than one mutant strain,” Fauci told NBC anchor Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “There’s one from the UK that’s essentially dominated… There’s another more ominous one that’s in South Africa and Brazil.” Fauci said he doesn’t want “people to panic,”
