America is in the trouble it is in now because people voted based on a man's speech not on his ability to govern or his ideology. I liked Scott's speech and the fact that he is a conservative, but I need to know more about his ability to govern. Look what happened to us when they put Clinton and Obama in based on their speeches at the DNC convention. Most people had never heard of them before that. Be careful and do your research.

Donald Trump was not member of the Washington political elite, so the GOP stood aside and let PDJT take all the slings and arrows. Their fear of the cancel culture, and threats to their cushy jobs and lobbyist income, has turned the GOPe now in office to support anyone but Trump, even if it costs them the WH in 2024.

I absolutely love Tim Scott and think he is a class act. With that said, I don't know if he has the gumption to run. Right now, my #1 choice BY FAR in 2024 is Ron DeSantis. I also don't think Trump is going to run again, and if I'm a betting person, (which I'm not), I'd bet that Trump is going to get behind DeSantis.

My son and another friend predicted this exact headline and that the Bush Republicans employed at FNC were ready to lead the charge. None of these things are happenstance. The GOP now distancing themselves from who is still the rightful President, taking credit for all his historic accomplishments OR refusing to give him honor due for what he did for the unborn and Israel is a mistake of gigantic proportions. They just keep digging the grave.

The GOP doesn’t want to be in the majority - they want to collect cash for wining and pontificating. Time Scott cannot win the Presidency. He is a conservative black man. His would be “Uncle Tim”, all the time. Besides, if 2020 isn’t fixed, it doesn’t matter who the Republican bloc as run. (Not too mention the many of us who won’t vote for a Republican or Democrat again).

I think the only folks who will be dumped are the ones that try to kick Trump out of the Party. Don't they remember how many people voted for Trump in 2021? Yes, He actually won in a Landslide. They know it and we know it. They are going to be kicked to the Curb while the Trump Train runs right over them. I never did trust McCarthy (who sided with Liz Cheney when she voted to Impeach Trump) or Lindsey Graham who has ALWAYS been a Mealey Mouth, McCain, Bush Lover. He can't be trusted either. If Trump wants to run, he will be backed by the Conservatives in the Party. If he decides not to run, he will back Ron DeSantis with Rallies and money. Either way, Trump is in Charge!

Trump is for America, First. If that's Tim Scott, I don't think he would have many objections... BUT... Tim Scott should be aware, right off the bat, that trusting these two, with anything important, is HUUUUGELY stupid.

All I know is Tim Scott also pushed for police reform while Trump was President. Really doubt we need police reform. What the police need is a quick non-lethal way to take down a perp. The backstabbing Republicans (that includes Lindsey Graham who was all too quick to support Obama) are throwing up any name to derail Trump. Now they are trying to use Tim Scott. Nope. Nada. No thanks. We have a 28 trillion dollar federal debt. It will reach 30 trillion. It will most likely reach 40 trillion. We cannot go on like this, and its our career politicians on both sides of the aisle that brought this about. It is long pass time for new blood in Washington. Trump is a good start. Really doubt anyone currently in Washington is the answer.

The times are right for an independent to win. NOBODY believes or trusts either party anymore. The Democrat establishment are all socialist/communist now and there are a good number of Democrat voters who are going to get a belly full of what they're slinging now. And the Republicans are nothing but RINOs, weasels, and self-serving opportunists. A decent candidate who says a pox on both their houses could definitely win. I doubt very much that Trump would run again. DeSantis certainly looks like a good man, but do you trust ANY of the Republican leadership now? I don't. They'll stab DeSantis in the back too if they get a good enough offer. Where is the leader this country so desperately needs now?

Let's not get super sensitive about every statement a Republican makes. McCarthy and Graham are among the least trustworthy Republicans. But mentioning Scott as presidential material is both a way to acknowledge the excellent rebuttal speech Scott gave and to tweak the nose of Democrats who are terrified of an up-from-the- bottom conservative black Republican. To them, Scott is Clarence Thomas. If Trump runs in 2024, which I doubt, I will be a big supporter. If he doesn't, Republicans have some great Prez and VP candidates. Scott is among them

Every time a Republican gives a rebuttal, we hear "Ooo, ooo, he/she needs to run for president!" The job involves more than reading a prepared speech on a teleprompter. The reason I supported Trump was because he was a man of action, not pretty words.

Democrats trot out the flavor of the month in order to win. Harris as VP was just that. By running a black man, we take away the Dems ability to claim the GOP is racist. Black men will vote for another black man before they vote for a half black female VP. We need to beat them at their own game. Even if Scott isn't perfect, he's miles away from a Biden administration not worrying about reelection.

Scott is okay as a Senator. But being a senator, doesn't qualify you to be president. Just look at Obama and Biden. Do not forget Kerry was nominated and ran. The media love senators because they a like the media; they are all talk and are not responsible for anything they say or do.

Here's my analysis of Tim Scott: PDJT helped him get his "Opportunity Zones" off the ground. When Trump needed Scott to stand by him after the election, he stood silent. That's all I need to know. Fortunately for him PDJT is more forgiving and apparently endorsed him for Senate. Truly don't know what I'll do in Nov. 2022 but I will be paying close attention to him before I vote for him again...

Unless the Republicans start backing whomever the people vote for as the Republican nominee in mass, it will just be a repeat of Trump's first two years in office. We'll have both houses and the White House, but will do nothing with it, because some Rino's don't like something or someone.

This is exactly why, after being a die-hard Republican for most of my 63 years, I became an "independent conservative" after this past November!!! What we used to call RINO's are now the heart and soul of the Republi-Can't Party!!! So I want no part of being tied to that useless and evil party any more. Don't get me wrong, I will still gladly vote for solidly conservative candidates that run as Republicans. And I will never ever vote for a Demon-Rat if it meant saving my life!!!! They are all pure evil!!!! But never again will I identify as a Republi-Can't, as they are spineless and impotent as a political party!!!

GOP needs to win the House, for certain, and the Senate in 2022. As the Speaker of the House does not need to be a House member the GOP needs to put Donald J. Trump in as Speaker. They can impeach Biden/Harris but not sure they will have to votes to convict. But, Trump can run the House and get things done.

100 Days of Biden’s Radical Presidency

President Joe Biden is not as radical as conservatives said he would be. He is much, much worse. The man who was sold to Americans as a “moderate” by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, and who told voters, “I beat the socialist,” has been the most radical president in U.S. history. Biden has proposed a staggering $6 trillion in spending, most of it unpaid for, and most of it on big government programs. He has also proposed massive tax hikes, in the midst of what he claims is a historic economic crisis. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has called Biden’s first 100 days in office a “bait and switch,”

Our country’s racial past is checkered, to say the least, but because our founders were wise men, if not perfect men, they bequeathed us a form of government we the people, through our representatives, could alter.Over the course of our history, through laws, constitutional amendments, and, sadly, a civil war, our predecessors got us as close to “a more perfect union” than when our country was founded.But in recent years, the American left, using the Democratic Party as its vehicle, has been working overtime to tear down all of the progress we’ve made.

One of the reasons, he said, is Frank Luntz. For decades, Luntz has been giving the GOP leadership its talking points. The problem is that Luntz is not a conservative; he is a corporate servant and his points always align with corporate America – and lately, corporate America has been aligning with the woke left. (snip) He’s the one who tells them that Republican voters love illegal immigration, want amnesty, and think it’s a great idea for the government to take their weapons.

UFOs exist — but the government doesn’t want you to know it, according to the ex-Pentagon official who says he ran the program investigating “unidentified aerial phenomena” or UAP. Recalling the revelatory instant when he recognized that UFOs were bona fide, controversial whistleblower Luis “Lue” Elizondo exclusively told The Post, “It was a holy-s–t moment: ‘Oh, my gosh, it’s real. Well, crap, now we have to do something about it.’ ” However, Elizondo has not been able to get the feds to act on what he describes as a serious national security risk due to a litany of roadblocks — including a cover-up of the existence of UFOs

Federal agents served a search warrant at a boutique resort in Homer, Alaska, saying they were looking for a laptop stolen from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, one of the Homer Inn and Spa owners said. Agents on Wednesday confiscated laptop computers and a cellphone, owner Marilyn Hueper said. A cellphone belonging to her husband, Paul Hueper, was also forensically audited by agents but not confiscated, she said. Marilyn Hueper said agents also claimed there was photographic evidence that she was inside the Capitol during the riot; something she denies.

Sen. Joe Manchin, the moderate Democrat from West Virginia, said in an interview Friday that he opposes legislation to give Washington, D.C., statehood — effectively killing a Democratic-led effort to reshape the American political map. "If Congress wants to make D.C. a state, it should propose a constitutional amendment and let the people of America vote," Manchin told WV MetroNews Talkline, a West Virginia news outlet. Asked directly if he would oppose unilateral action by Congress to make the district a state, Manchin replied, "Yes, I would." Stasha Rhodes, the campaign director for the pro-D.C.-statehood group 51 for 51, said in response

I confess that like most Americans, I had no interest in watching Joe Biden’s non-State of the Union address to a mostly empty House chamber hosting a joint session of Congress. That’s why I missed a golden moment during the commentary afterward on Fox News Channel, one that surely stands as what the progressives like to call a “Profile in Courage.” (snip) Last week, the host of the program [Fox News Primetime] was Ben Domenech (snip) With a potential plum like that a possibility, Domenech deserves a lot of credit

The Republican party could be destined to lose elections for the foreseeable future if Mitch McConnell has anything to say about it.The Senate Minority Leader continues to resist the reality that the old establishment GOP which he has long represented has been resoundingly rejected by voters who have made it clear that they prefer the America First policies championed by Donald J. Trump.The former POTUS may have been run out of Washington by the likes of McConnell and other RINOs but he remains a powerful and influential force and will largely determine who the 2024 GOP nominee is, whether it is

President Joe Biden is again spending the weekend in Delaware, but just how he spends his days of leisure are shrouded in mystery. The White House has so far released very little information about what he does on Saturdays and Sundays, providing the public with scant details about whom he spends time or speaks to. When he arrived at his Wilmington residence Friday afternoon, it marked his seventh trip home as president as the country returns to some semblance of normal amid the coronavirus pandemic and a day after he cleared his 100th in office. Presidents never experience "a true

Joe Biden's son Hunter still has a stake in a Chinese private equity firm, according to a report - despite a campaign pledge that neither he nor his family would maintain any foreign business interests. Hunter, 50, retains a 10 per cent in the Bohai Harvest RST Equity Investment Fund Management Company, Fox News reported. BHR Partners is co-owned by the Bank of China, the state-controlled central bank.

Many of us recently saw an online video of a young teenage girl brandishing a knife, large enough to be a deadly weapon, attempting to stab another young girl. Just in the nick of time, a police officer shot the attacker, who died. While this is the most extreme video I've seen, there are many other instances of similar behavior, mostly unrecorded by media. Somehow, we have become a nation in which literally thousands of young people are walking around, ready at a moment's notice to react with violence,
