It appears that some Republicans like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are hoping that they can distance themselves from President Donald Trump and/or that he’ll ride off quietly into the sunset. But what they’re missing in all this is why people support Trump to begin with. Because here was someone finally responding frankly to them who did in fact, govern by putting America and Americans first. He didn’t govern like someone trying to preserve his own power, otherwise he would have made all kinds of concessions in the face of the constant blistering attack on him throughout his presidency. He governed

Those that follow McConnell and the other RINO's in the Republican Party are doomed to be ousted this next election cycle. Mitch forgets that over 74 million patriots voted to re-elected Donald J. Trump and believe me when I say they will not forget the betrayal. I for one can hardly wait for 2022!

After considering myself to be a strong Republican for all 63 years of my life, I became an "independent conservative" in November. After watching so many swamp-creature Republicans stab President Trump in the back over and over again, I finally realized that the Republican Party is now the Republi-Can't Party, and I want no part of it. Oh, I will still vote for solid conservative candidates that run as Republicans. But I will donate directly to their campaigns. Never another penny to the useless, spineless, cajones-less, GOP!!! I always voted for the Republican candidate in any election, considering any Republican to be the lesser of two evils compared to the Demon-Rats. But I have learned that that is not true. A bad Republi-Can't is as bad as, if not worse, than a Demon-Rat. So those races will be left blank on any future ballots. I refuse to vote for evil any longer!!!!!

Glenn Reynolds this night points to Ann Althouse and one of her commenters suggesting that Trump pull a John Quincy Adams and run for congress in 2022. In Florida he'd easily win. Then he could end up as Speaker of the House, set the legislative agenda of Congress, and control the mechanism of impeachment for the rest of Harris/Biden's term. It would make CNN and MSNBC 100s of millions of $$$.

I became an independent when they foisted Romney on us. I no longer feel obligated to vote for the guy with the R after his name if he is a scoundrel. For instance, the Rep for my area is some clown named McKinley, who pretends to be conservative, but did not lift one finger to help President Trump in his four years, and in a newsletter a couple weeks ago said Trump had committed an impeachable offense during the capitol false flag. So I will vote for his opponent in the primary, and if he is the nominee anyway I will probably vote for the democrat. Better to have an enemy who declares himself to be the enemy than one who wears our uniform.

I am a huge supporter of President Trump and the MAGA movement. I was hoping that VP Spence would take up the cause as his own but I see that won't happen I believe POTUS 45 needs to find a firebrand follower with the Trump work ethic and the dedication to the conservative cause as a Rush Limbaugh. Make that person the heir to the Trump revolution and send them into battle with the Leftists. Show no mercy and take no prisoners.Where will we find such a person?

If the establishment thinks that the only reason the Never Trumpers failed was because of some unsolicited and pornographic messenging they will join them in the wastebins of history. I blame them not Trump and not simply voter fraud for the Biden Presidency. For the last four years Trump reacted to constant negativism the only way he knows - as a diehard New Yorker - brash and in-your-face. The Never Trumpers and RINO's who've been obsessed with style instead of policy became 2020's Ross Perot and split the GOP vote allowing a baby-killing, America Second, multi-nationalist to win.

There is a huge reason why the establishment Republicans are called the Stupid Party. Remember before the runoff election in Georgia where two US Senate seats were up for grabs? Common sense will tell you that massive numbers of Americans, including large numbers of people in Georgia, were and are still hurting financially because of the Chinese COVID pandemic. Before the election the Democrats came out and told the voters of Georgia that the DC Democrats were about to pass another COVID stimulus bill and would be sending them $2,000.00 each. The leader of the Republicans, McConnell, a multimillionaire with close Chinese family connections, then stated that he would only support $600.00 stimulus checks to the voters of Georgia and the nation. President Trump supported the $2,000 stimulus payment. Now if you were a financially hurting voter in Georgia, what party candidates would you vote for, Democrat candidates who offered you a $2,000.00 payment or Republican Candidates led by McConnell who were offering a $600.00 payment. Well guess what, both Democrat candidates won their elections and the establishment Republicans lost control of their Senate majority. That’s just one example as to why the establishment Republicans led by McConnell are certainly the Stupid Party. Now the establishment Republicans, still led by McConnell, have come down against Trump with McConnell suggesting that Trump could be prosecuted both civilly and criminally in the federal courts, at a time that Trump has 75 million or more supporters across the nation, who constitute 80% of reliable Republican voters. No doubt the 2022 State level Republican primary elections are going to be interesting as wimpy establishment Republican and McConnell supported candidates running for re-election come up against actual Trump supported conservative Republican candidates.

Karl Rove and his cute little white board will not be pleased. According to him republicans are supposed to vote for republicans no matter what - even if the republican is more liberal / socialist / communist than his or her democrat opponent. "The only thing worse than a liberal democrat is a liberal republican". Someone said.

It's the beginning of the end for the GOP establishment. they will fight like h3ll to keep it alive. But we are tired of it and it is dying fast. You could say it's on life support. What really put a knife in the heart of the establishment is when they turned their backs on us, Telling us that we need to move on knowing that the election was stolen. Now, we have turned on them. You can include Pence is the establishment. He really turned on us and there is NO forgiveness for his actions.

Linsey, the little Worm, can dodge and weave all he wants. I don't trust him and Trump would be wise not to trust him as well! As for McConnell, there is no coming back from the back stabbing he did to Trump after the Impeachment Sham ended. There is no way in Hell most Republicans will ever back McConnell again. As soon as we take back the Senate , McConnell should be kicked to the curb!

All I know is that I will NOT be voting for either of my Republican senators or my Republican representative. All three stabbed both President Trump and me in the back after the stolen election and the “riot” on 1/6. Lindsey Graham, Tim Scott and Nancy Mace. I doubt that Graham or Mace would have won without Trump’s help but their loyalty lasted about a nano-second.

We are about to get a test of where we the people stand in the midterms. Unless the GOP goes all democrat on us and steals the primaries, we will soon see. I hope that what we see in 2022 makes the "Tea Party" look like a ....tea party in comparison. Actually I believe that will happen but grasp that it wont happen by itself. I'm not sure how I'll play my role yet but I'm expecting to raise my game.

I remember when I was a very young child my father saying he was a Goldwater Republican. I took it to mean that, even then, there were factions in Republican party and are family stood with Goldwater. Also remember my parents taking me to Indianapolis and listening to President Reagan when he was putting out feelers to run for President. Not that many attending. He shook hands with all of us and gave my mother his autograph. We were just ordinary people attending and there was no cost to attend. My father a fireman and my mother a nurse. My parents stood with Reagan but the establish didn't want Reagan. It took all of us little people in the party vote and elect Reagan and foil the establishment. We have to beat the establishment and replace them with better candidates. It's on us now.

Seems like only yesterday we didn't trust polls... Okay, conservatives, we go back to the McCain/Romney conundrum: The Democrats put up Hillary or AOC as candidate in an historically reliable Republican district. The GOPe puts up Mitch or Lindsay...the Patriot party puts up the MAGA conservative candidate d'jour. Polls show the Dems have 44% of the vote...the GOPe candidate polls 40%, and the Patriot the remaining 16%. Of course, this election decides the fate of America, like they all do. Who you voting for? Going down on principle? Or. saving the nation from a worse fate? Cue the Jeopardy theme...

On Tuesday, current and former Capitol Police officials testified at a joint hearing of the Senate Homeland Security and Rules committees about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. The law enforcement officers claimed that they had been prepared to face a potentially violent protest, but they said the rioters caught them off guard. “We properly planned for a mass demonstration with possible violence. What we got was a military-style coordinated assault on my officers and a violent takeover of the Capitol building,” former U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Steven Sund testified. He pushed back on claims that USCP was not prepared for the riot.

Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden. Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them. Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water. Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested. Biden signed the declaration late Friday. It covers much of the Texas population.
