Can the Republicans be trusted to stand
aside as Democrats implode?

Napoleon Bonaparte is reputed to have originated the expression, “Never interfere with the enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.” It’s to be hoped that, when it comes to the Democrats and their reckoning with Biden’s profoundly diminished brain power, Republicans heed this advice. In 2020, when Biden ran for office, conservatives warned that (a) he was a deep well of corruption, kind of like an unplumbed cesspool; (b) he was never the brightest bulb in the box, to begin with; (c) he was showing early signs, if not of clinical dementia, but at least of age-related diminished capacity; and (d) that he seemed to be in

Clearly, too many R's like to give corrupt D's cover and a soft landing, so they can maintain their "bipartisan appeal" (just in case the SHTF, you know). What we REALLY need are a few more R'S that know how to, AND WILL, toss in a banana peel or two...

I think so. They have stood aside while the communists imploded the country, and while their own rinos imploded their party. Standing aside is what they do best.

I agree with Andrea, Impeachment at this moment or the 25th Amendment is a terrible mistake. Running against FJB is what is best for America. Not only of the Executive Office but Down-slate as well. Perhaps, it's my wishful thinking but I believe a pubbie controlled House and Senate are in the offing!

Republicans would be best served to let Joe implode during the campaign. Trump is going to hammer him relentlessly about being too incompetent and cowardly to face him in a debate. In a debate, Trump will hammer home points and Joe will react with senile rage and confusion. Look at the press conference fiasco. Joe was "in charge" and the media are sympatico with dems. Yet, Joe was furious and incompetent. It would be a horror show. If Republicans step in to take action, it is unlikely they would succeed (impeachment requires a 2/3 Senate vote) and it would give dems and media something to fight against. Instead, keep the heat on boil with a unified and constant drumbeat about the incompetent and dangerous senility of Biden and the failures of the dem party. Point out that dems in Congress are propping up an obviously incapable man as President. Dems don't deserve to hold office because of this. Polls already indicate that the public believes this. Fan the flames but leave any corrective action up to the dems. They broke it, they buy it.

Sorry #7, but I disagree. If Harris steps up to the Oval Office, she'll be just as much controlled by the Obama puppeteer crew as Biden now is. Kamala knows she got the Biden gig because Obie had repeatedly said she would be Biden's best choice for veep. Kamala will be so in over her head that she'll do exactly as Obama orders her to do.

As long as most republicans continue to receive their lifetime pay, privileges and the many other material benefits that they receive just by holding a seat in Washington, they will do nothing to jeopardize the gig. They have access to corruption such as is not available to those who hold real jobs on the outside. Just because they might hold the majority in the House and in the Senate is no guarantee, ever, that they will do the right thing. Term limits, reduced pay and benefits, jail time for wrongdoing are all improvements we would like to see but they must vote for those restrictions on themselves so it will never happen unless outside force is used to fix the problem.

Hopefully they do but there are a few who just can't seem to help themselves (Gaetz comes to mind) to shoot from the hip without a plan. The Dems now need to defend Biden's fitness for office which will be a testament to their judgement.

If all one read were Replies to articles, one might not know that Trump is a Republican by choice, and the leading candidate for the Republican nomination this year. Despite wishful thinking and the urging of a segment of his supporters, Trump chose not to run as an Independent or establish his own third party. As the GOP front-runner, Trump is the defacto political leader of the GOP, not some Ronna Romney McDaniel temporary staff weenie. Reading between the lines, I think most anti-Republican hatred is directed towards Republicans in Congress, a group that is absolutely essential to Trump's success as our next president, provided the RINO ranks within Congress can be significantly culled. It is possible that the author was politely, if not subtly, urging Trump to allow his political opponents to self-immolate, rather than fire off mocking, cringe-worthy attacks, like he just did on Haley's husband, who is on military deployment to Africa. Nikki Haley is but a minor speedbump on Trump's way to the nomination, appearing more democrat-like than any of the GOP presidential candidates, who have withdrawn from the race. His comments may not play well in SC, largely a military-friendly state.

The Republican Party is the enabler of totalitarian socialism in order to secure their warmongering money lifeline. The symbiotic relationship is epitomized by the love affair between Mitch McConnell and Up-Chuck Schumer. If Republicans don't care about stolen elections, why should I? Republicans are united in their hatred of President Trump because Trump threatens their cozy little relationship with the Democrats. The US seriously, seriously needs to get rid of the Republican Party.

Former President Donald Trump on Monday asked the Supreme Court to step into the charged dispute over whether he may claim immunity from prosecution, once again pressing the nine justices to resolve a question that could undermine his campaign for a second term. Trump asked the Supreme Court to temporarily block a scathing and unanimous decision from the DC Circuit handed down last week that flatly rejected his claims of immunity from election subversion charges brought by special counsel Jack Smith. “Conducting a months-long criminal trial of President Trump at the height of election season will radically disrupt President Trump’s ability to campaign against President Biden,” Trump’s attorneys wrote in their request.

Moreno, who has a lengthy criminal record and was born as a man – Jeffrey Escalante – from El Salvador, was killed after off-duty police officers at the church responded to the incident. A search warrant said Moreno pointed an AR-15 at the officers who then fired upon her and killed her in self-defense. The message "Free Palestine" also was written on the rifle used in the attack, investigators said. As a man, the 36-year-old Moreno has a criminal history including convictions for assaulting

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden has been venting his frustration in recent private conversations, some of them with campaign donors, over his inability to persuade Israel to change its military tactics in the Gaza Strip, and he has named Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the primary obstacle, according to five people directly familiar with his comments. Biden has said he is trying to get Israel to agree to a cease-fire, but Netanyahu is “giving him hell” and is impossible to deal with, said the people familiar with Biden’s comments, who all asked not to be named. “He just feels like this is enough,”

For decades, Westerners were deeply concerned about South African apartheid. The pressure the West put on that nation finally led to apartheid’s end in the early 1990s. However, a new and very ugly apartheid movement is emerging in South Africa, and no one in the West seems interested in talking about it. This time, it’s whites who are in the crosshairs, and genocide is on the menu, with a radical black communist party poised to become the majority in South Africa’s Parliament. While the end of apartheid was ripe with promise, the fly in the ointment was always going to be communism. Thanks to the non-stop communist rule of South Africa’s

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hollywood is experiencing a disastrous winter. People aren’t going to the movies, opting instead to stay home. Obviously, part of the issue is streaming, which has upended the old business model. However, one cannot ignore the fact that today’s movies are awful, whether because they’re mechanical, recycled garbage, or because they’re preachy, painfully woke garbage.

RAFAH, Gaza Strip — A series of Israeli strikes early Monday hit Rafah, the city on the southern edge of the Gaza Strip where 1.4 million Palestinians have fled to escape fighting elsewhere in the four-month Israel-Hamas war. Israel has been signalling its ground offensive in Gaza may soon target the densely populated city on the Egyptian border. On Sunday, the White House said U.S. President Joe Biden had warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Israel should not conduct a military operation against Hamas in Rafah without a “credible and executable” plan to protect civilians.

A special force of the Israeli military conducted an overnight mission and rescued two Israeli hostages held captive by Hamas in the southernmost Gazan city of Rafah, IDF officials said early on Monday. The two hostages, identified as Fernando Marman, 61, and Louis Har, 70, were found to be in good condition and were transferred for medical examination to the Sheba Tel Hashomer hospital in Ramat Gan in Israel, officials told Haaretz. Marman and Har had been kidnapped from the Nir Yitzhak kibbutz during the October 7 attacks. Forces from the Israel Security Agency, the Israeli police, and the IDF conducted the operation around 1 a.m. local time, a joint statement

Netanyahu told ABC’s This Week program that “enough” hostages are alive in Hamas territory “to warrant the kind of efforts that we’re doing.” “We’re going to try to do our best to get all those who are alive back and, frankly, also the bodies of the dead,” he added. Netanyahu, after noting that one Palestinian civilian has been killed for every Hamas terrorist, assured that the Israeli military is trying to minimize civilian casualties.

Joe Biden is incapable of assuring voters he can handle another presidential term, his team has 'no plan' on how to deal with his senile behavior, and he should simply 'not be running for re-election,' according to New York Times authors.

The back-to-back opinion pieces knifing the elderly president, 81, over the weekend comes after a Justice Department report ripped into his handling of classified documents and portrayed him as a forgetful old man.
