"NRRT president and executive director Adam Kincaid highlighted that Pompeo and Christie “will be tremendous assets". Delete the letter "t" from the word assets and you get to the truth.

Good lord, what is wrong with so-called Republican leadership? Chris Christie and Karl Rove? Haven’t they had their snouts in the DC trough long enough? Let them try getting a real job….produce something worthwhile, drive a truck to deliver food products to grocers? Sheesh.

Another RINO, Chris "Cholesterol" Christie, wanting attention to feed his massive ego. It shouldn't be long before he starts to bash DJT.

OK, while all three are establishment members, I am not sure that their interests and the interests of conservatives will diverge by very much when it comes to redistricting. However, I do not trust them and their actions should be watched very carefully to see that they are not actively working against conservative interests (because I do believe that they can be easily convinced that sacrificing some of their own interests in order to weaken conservatives is their best move).

Ironic that two stories up is posted a good article on the problem with "stopping" when losing. These guys are the ultimate in status-quo. If Romney didn't already have a job they'd probably add him to the group. "tremendous assets"? You mean they will siphon tremendous assets into their own bank accounts!

Setting the stage to lose. This is why one cannot change the Republican party. Internal machinations are not subject and do not care what the base wants. In fact, the base is only viewed and given lip service and empty promises when it's time to ask for money and votes.

OMG! Somebody who can communicate with Secretary Pompeo please, please, please let the Secretary know that when (then) NJ Governor Christie had the opportunity to change the 2010 Congressional Districts, he blew it, by selecting the majority person (a Democrat) on the Committee, leaving our state to suffer for these last ten years because he gerrymandered these Districts to make them easier for Democrat nominees to win their Districts.

I thought Mike Pompeo was one of the good guys. Is he showing his true colors or is the Deep State tossing him in there to lend a thin veneer of respectability to this sham group ? As far as redistricting goes I don’t trust the republican party and I particularly don’t trust this group. Here in Colorado our “non-partisan” redistricting commission is all set to gerrymander Lauren Boebert out of her congressional seat and I have not heard a peep out of our rino party.

While they're at it, since this whole exercise is a numbers game based on population and registration status, let's ensure they demand voter registration rolls are cleaned up FIRST. When you see democrats arguing against it, you know they are using the fuzzy registration rolls in some way that's not beneficial to Republicans. However, most people are decent and want fair and honest elections, so this line of action should resonate, and be easy to understand for most people. Think about how many have moved from New York, Illinois and California alone, then add how many have died. California alone has had over 500,000 people move out, and I've heard reports of 700,000+.

BRIAN Laundrie, the fiance of missing van-life vlogger Gabby Petito, shared a series of chilling artworks online just months before the pair embarked on a cross-country road trip, from which only he returned.

One post, dated July 8, 2020, shows what appears to be a man wearing a wolf mask, sat in a chair and holding a blood-soaked knife, with red splatters up his arms and legs

PARIS – Could delivering COVID-19 immunity directly to the nose — the area of the body via which it is most likely to be transmitted — help conquer the pandemic? The World Health Organization says clinical trials are underway to evaluate eight nasal spray vaccines that target COVID-19. The most advanced effort so far by China’s Xiamen University, the University of Hong Kong and Beijing Wantai Biological Pharmacy has completed phase-2 trials. “When the virus infects someone it usually gets in through the nose,” said researcher Nathalie Mielcarek who is working with the Lille Pasteur Institute to develop a nasal spray vaccine against whooping cough.

Amid persistent concerns that the protection offered by COVID-19 vaccines may be waning, a report released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that America's workhorse shot is significantly less effective at preventing severe cases of disease over the long term(snip) Data collected from 18 states between March and August suggest the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine reduces the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19 by 91% in the first four months after receiving the second dose. Beyond 120 days, however, that vaccine efficacy drops to 77%. Meanwhile, Moderna's vaccine was 93% effective at reducing the short-term risk of COVID-19 hospitalization and remained 92% effective after 120 days.

The federal government’s sudden rationing of monoclonal antibody treatments, which keep Americans who get COVID-19 out of hospitals, is hitting Alabama hard, with some sites already running out of or projected to run out of supply soon. The antibodies are highly successful at stemming the effects of COVID-19 when given to patients soon after they contract the disease, which is caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. But a huge jump in demand in recent weeks has left what some officials have described as a national shortage, triggering the federal government to intervene and start doling out what’s left.

Voters in Minneapolis, the city where George Floyd died in police custody, sparking months of destructive protests, will now be able to vote in the upcoming municipal elections on abolishing the police department, the Minnesota Supreme Court said in a reversal of a lower court ruling. The decision concluded: The decision of the district court filed on September 14, 2021, granting the petition of respondents’ Don Samuels et al., to correct the ballot, requiring local election officials to provide notice instructing voters not to vote on the ballot question, and enjoining local election officials from tallying, counting or in any way considering votes cast on the ballot question, is reversed.
