A person on Twitter (did not ask permission to use name)who is well known and credible tweeted that a certain Republican is planning to try and primary Pres Trump. i’m not going to give that ‘potential’ Republican challenger any name recognition. Let’s put it this way; it is not someone you would expect. i’m pretty certain that any name you might speculate about is probably NOT the one. For the point i’m going to make here it doesn’t really matter. What bothered me is the knives for Trump came out so quickly;even some of the people who replied on Twitter sounded enthused about going along.Thankfully it was only a handful.
Governor DeSantis already made his position clear.If Trump ran,he wouldn’t. So rule that name out totally. We know Trump IS going to run. He’s made his intentions perfectly clear too. Here’s my take on why a primary challenger against Trump is a terrible move. Yes, I’m biased. I’m totally committed to voting for Trump in 2024.It’s no secret. Set aside the basis. It’s irrelevant to this point. The Trump base would definitely become bitter. i would. We all know Trump won in 2020 and without a remedy he is still due the 2nd term he earned. We are bound and determined to give it to him. i doubt a challenger could beat him anyway but it could very well divide the party and trigger infighting. NOT good. Let the Democrats fight among themselves. Trump is our best shot at winning in 2024 and the Dems are going to attack him relentlessly-we already know that-so why join their side?
I read a tweet that said we need a fresh face. Now wait a minute toots. Trump only served one term, meaning he was only seriously into politics for 4 yrs. in office and 1 yr on the campaign trail.Five years total. In the political life continuum that IS a fresh face. What exactly did she mean by fresh face? What does that have to with great policies for the country?
Trump went up against forces that no President has ever dealt with.He went up against forces that no Congressman or Governor has ever been up against. i’ll be honest & admit i had no idea how deep and wide the swamp was or how big a role the Deep State played while he was President. For that matter i never heard of the Deep State before Trump became President. He kept all his promises but were there things i wish he had done that didn’t get done? Sure were, but i also realize there were forces allied against him and it’s amazing he got anything done at all. It’s amazing he survived.
Thank God his base is loyal, resolute and determined.
In a 2nd term there would be nothing to lose making any serious moves easier to pull off.He should have deemed the Antifa/BLM riots an insurrection.Esper got in his way. President Trump probably should have told Esper to pound sand but he didn’t. I have no idea why but assume he may have had good reason not to [behind the scenes] that we’re not aware of.
Wray should have been fired but i bet you dimes to dollars he’s out the door in 2024.
Barr was a huge disappointment. i gave him the benefit of the doubt believing he would be neutral and always do the right thing. I was wrong. Total Bush guy.Trump was left out to dry.
Who could he trust in DC? Next to nobody.
I see some thorough house cleaning coming in 2024.
if the libs thought it was orange man bad in 2016 & 2020 they ‘aint’ seen nothing yet.
Trump’s picks on his economic team were stellar. He pulled off some major victories in foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East. It was a pleasant and welcome surprise. i never thought foreign policy would be his strong suite. He managed to accomplish in 4 yrs what no previous President was able to do. Now if he can just get the Deep State under his thumb and out the door!!
He will be in a far better position to do it in a 2nd term.Again, bears repeating, nothing to lose anymore and everything to gain.
There was another tweet that suggested getting a different candidate would be better because the Dems are going to run ads of the Capitol incident on Jan 6 with a Trump voice over continuously. He thought it would cost us and Trump would lose due to that. For one, nobody gives a rip about the lying media anymore except the left but let’s suppose they run that ad. He’s likely right they will.
I have a counter ad in mind. You show continuous footage of the Antifa/BLM insurrection with the Democrats blessing and do 2 voice overs. One of the Dems saying they were mostly peaceful protestors noting their funding of bail and defunding the police and another from the Trump rally on Jan 6 where he tells the crowd to march peacefully to the Capitol Building. BINGO! The Democrat ads are Neutralized.
I heard the usual about his name calling and mean tweets too. They seem to think we’d do better with a ‘nice’ candidate. The establishment would go for that. Want to hear something weird? i never did get what mean tweets they were referring to. I never read any. Serious.
The name calling is known as branding and it works. Trump IS nice. Does he have hubris? Yes. A bit of an ego? Yes. Ask me if i care. One of the reasons he seems to brag at times-guess you could call it that-is because the media never says squid about his accomplishments. If he doesn’t talk about them who will? You have to be able to get your message out. Trump is known as a very nice man by the people who truly know him. I don’t believe we need a ‘nice’ candidate on the campaign trail. i don’t want anyone who is going to play footsie with the Democrats or the Republican ‘elites’. i don’t want anyone who gets a pass from saint media. That’s a red flag.The Democrats are Marxists-the majority. The Republicans are weak-the majority. We won’t forget they called Trump Hitler,Stalin, Putin’s Puppet and worse. The left has no room to talk do they? They can dish it out. They can’t take it.
You could count the moderate Democrats one one hand and the warrior Republicans on the other.
Let Trump make his formal announcement when the time comes and get behind him 100%.
Trump got more of the minority vote than any Republican candidate ever.Trump brought in some of the Democrats. Maybe not a large percentage but some. He especially brought in the vote of people so disillusioned by politics they quit voting altogether. You’re not going to get a Republican candidate who can do that other than Trump. Trump has a terrific credible record to run on already. He wasn’t perfect by any means and there’s some things he’ll be able to do differently in his final term he probably should have done in his first but he has a fantastic record to run on nonetheless. Consider what he accomplished on the border alone. His accomplishments are indisputable.Some keep focusing on things he should have done-that time is past. Let’s get the focus on his historic records. How do we know it’s not our opponents trying to sow discontent? If it’s not them, they will definitely make use of any serious rumblings on our side they get wind of. His historic records are indisputable. We can stick with them and stay on message.
Finally, let’s remind these people that Trump actually got more votes-they increased substantially-in 2020 than 2016.It’s often overlooked. It’s one of the reasons i’m convinced he won in 2020 but it’s true regardless.
i hope the word about a primary challenger is just a rumor. Backstabbers like that don’t go over well anyway. We saw enough of those.Too many. BTW. It’s NOT Mike Pence. We already know he’s testing the water. He’s backstabber numero uno.He doesn’t have a prayer. He just doesn’t know it [yet].
Newsflash: there isn’t a candidate that can win without Trump’s loyal base. You stab Trump in the back we have a long memory.We’re in no mood to let bygones be bygones 2. Covid is why Trump lost? Biden is not going to get the virus ‘under control.’ Trump isn’t going to get the virus ‘under control.’ They’re men, not gods. Only God will be able to eradicate this bioweapon used by the CCP. Handle the consequences, yes. Control, no. Big difference.
So, when they say McConnell “sold out,” maybe they think he did.And maybe he did, we’ll never really know. But there are other options to consider before jumping to the easy conclusion. The most obvious possible alternative, and frankly the most likely, is that what McConnell did saved the filibuster, at least for now.
Democrats desperately want to get rid of it, this fight would’ve been perfect cover. Yes, Democrats could have raised the debt ceiling on their own through a reconciliation vote, but I don’t believe they wanted Republican votes to end a filibuster so they could say both sides were to blame for the trillions Democrats are looking to add to the debt.
Let me tell you why that doesn’t matter. First, so few people in Congress of either party actually care about the debt to matter, same for the public. Second, if Democrats had blown up the filibuster, which this was a tactic to do, it would have given them cover to ram through their massive “human infrastructure” bill.
Hear me out on this.Remember the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court? Democrats had already ended the filibuster on every judicial nomination except the Supreme Court. When Gorsuch was chosen to replace Antonin Scalina, it wasn’t going to make a difference in the balance of the court.
There was no reason to filibuster, there was nothing on the line. They did it anyway, knowing full-well Republicans would do what Democrats had done and gotten rid of the 60 vote threshold, which is what happened.No one cared, and barely anyone noticed. Then came the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, the ultimate “swing vote” on the court, and the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace him.
That would impact the court, and Democrats had absolutely nothing they could to block it. They tried, but lies can’t replace procedure.Democrats want to get rid of the filibuster, desperately, but they know if they simply do it to ram a massive entitlement program or giant spending bill the public would punish them.
There’s also the problem that many of their Members are on record saying they wouldn’t get rid of the filibuster. There’s a difference if they break their word to protect the country from default and financial ruin, which they claim about the debt ceiling, and if they break it for a massive spending bill that subsidizes their donors and friends.
By ending their filibuster on the debt limit vote, McConnell prevented Democrats from ending the filibuster for any reason other than naked politics, which is exactly what they don’t want to happen. Their cover was gone and they’d been boxed in.
When you can’t get your way, it’s best to create a scenario where your opponents have to pay the highest price possible for getting theirs. It’s the only thing that’ll give them pause, and your only remaining shot an ultimate victory.
What will Democrats do now? We don’t know. But we do know they would’ve gutted the filibuster under the guise of “saving the country from default.” With it gone, it would’ve been game on for whatever else they wanted to pass. But that dam wasn’t broken, it’s still there now. Which makes it harder and costlier politically if they do it in the future for issues that aren’t “emergency” matters.
You can hate Mitch McConnell for a lot of things, any reason you want, really, what the hell do I care? But whatever reason you want to hate him for should be based on reality. And the reality is, no matter how much blowhards whine and pander to their audiences to sounds “super conservative,” what transpired this week was the smart play. Every honest Monday Morning Quarterback knows that’s the case.
KOMMONSENTSJANE – CHUCK SCHUMER PICKED THE WRONG MOMENT TO GO ON A PARTISAN RANT.
McConnell was stupid enough and weak enough to cave to the deal in the first place. The Schumer rant was more stupidity on the Democrat side of the aisle, In fact Virginia Senator Joe Manchin got up and walked out on Schumer.
Schumer couldn’t help himself though. He’s always been one nasty dude like his counterpart in the House, Speaker Pelosi. They’re two truly nasty and may i say, think i shall, evil people.
AND YOU DON’T THINK THE JOE BIDEN’S LEFTY CROOKS DIDN’T SWIPE THE 2021 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION! THAT’S TODAY’S AMERICA FOR US!
the left has never been told the truth by corporate media and their partners in cable news and social media like Twitter-maybe they have an excuse for what they believe about all the lies. Republican congressmen have no excuse yet few of them bother to demand answers re the election or raise cain about Spygate aka Obamagate.

source: Richard Moorhead California Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation to require anti-white critical race theory curriculum in every public high school in the state Friday, making the left-wing indoctrination a graduation requirement for all students.The law places ethnic studies classes on the same par as math and English in California schools. California has long been a home for far-left ethnic studies programs in colleges and universities. Model curriculum for the requirement is recommended to focus upon blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Asians. The Los Angeles United School district had already voted last year to require two semesters of ethnic studies for students to graduate.The CRT requirement will also serve as an incredible grift to leftist pro-CRT “academics,” creating a paying government job at every high school in the biggest state in the country for them to peddle their prejudiced views. The curriculum requirement enters effect in the 2025-2026 school year.
