President Donald Trump Bucks Mitch McConnell, Backs Judge Roy Moore

President Donald Trump has finally broken his silence on Judge Roy Moore, the embattled Senate candidate from Alabama who has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women. Trump indicated yesterday that he supports Judge Moore despite the allegations because his far-left Democrat opponent is just too dangerous. “I can tell you one thing for sure: We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump said to journalists outside of the White House yesterday. Trump was careful not to denigrate the supposed victims, but noted that Judge Moore has denied all the claims – which are not backed… Keep Reading

SABOTAGE: Mitch McConnell Tries To Extort Judge Roy Moore’s Senate Campaign Out Of Funds!

The sabotage campaign of Judge Roy Moore by the Republican Party establishment is sinking to desperate new lows. After Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for Moore to surrender to the Democrats, a McConnell-affiliated PAC is now demanding to be refunded of its donation. McConnell’s leadership PAC, Bluegrass Committee, gave a $5,000 donation to Judge Roy Moore following his victory over Luther Strange in a runoff primary election earlier this year. The Bluegrass Committee is now requesting that the money be returned to the organization. “I think he should step aside,” McConnell said after allegations were levied against Judge… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon: “Information’s Going To Come Out” Showing GOP Establishment Is Behind Roy Moore Sabotage Campaign

While most Republican Party officials and many big names in the conservative movement back away from Judge Roy Moore following decades-old accusations of sexual impropriety, Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon is standing strong under the pressure. He refused to withdraw his endorsement of Judge Moore, and says it is up to the voters of Alabama to decide who they want as their next US Senator. “The people of Alabama have got to decide,” Bannon said to a South Florida audience yesterday. “In Alabama, let people decide and we’ll see how it turns out.” Although Bannon’s support of Judge Moore… Keep Reading

Will Steve Bannon Stand Behind Judge Roy Moore?

Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon, who frequently boasts about his plans of a populist revolution seeking to overturn the GOP orthodoxy since leaving the Trump administration, is facing his first big test as political kingmaker. Judge Roy Moore, the anti-establishment GOP Senate contender in Alabama, is facing immense attacks for accusations of sexual improprieties, and the heat continues to build against the Bannon pick. “Even Chuck Todd, the swampiest creature of swamp creatures, he walked through it yesterday on Meet the Press. He said it felt completely orchestrated,” Bannon said on SiriusXM radio, indicating that he does not buy… Keep Reading

President Trump Comforts Establishment Legislators Shaken By Steve Bannon’s Threats

President Donald Trump campaigned all last year on draining the swamp, but has shown that he is willing to be friendly with establishment figures if he believes it is advantageous to his agenda. After endorsing losing candidate Luther Strange over Judge Roy Moore in an Alabama GOP Senate primary, Trump is making overtures to other reviled establishment lawmakers up for re-election next year that he has their back. Politico reported that Trump called Sens. John Barrasso (R-WY), Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Roger Wicker (R-MS) to assure the men that he has their backs moving forward. Trump’s former employee, Breitbart News… Keep Reading

Steve Bannon: Time Has Come For A ‘Season Of War’ Against The ‘GOP Establishment’

Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon appeared today to give a speech to the annual Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C., and he let it rip on the forces that he believes are holding back President Donald Trump’s mandate to Make America Great Again. Bannon pointed out the futility of big money forces uniting behind candidates like Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who lost handily in a primary election last month to his grassroots underdog opponent, Judge Roy Moore. Despite having many institutional advantages in his favor, Strange was beaten by Moore despite having more sane and acceptable views according to… Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul: We Must Object Phony, Cronyist, GOP-Backed Tax Cuts

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is known for being as free market as they come in the legislature, so it has come as a shock to many as Paul has opposed GOP-backed reforms in recent weeks. Republican leaders such as Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) – and even President Donald Trump – have pushed healthcare and tax reform plans that Paul has stood firmly against. Paul is standing against these plans not because he doesn’t want a fundamental change in healthcare and tax policy. He is standing against these measures because they are more of the same… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Gets Roll Call Vote On Failed Health Care Amendment, But Will His Gamble Pay Off?

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was undecided about whether to vote to move forward debate on repealing and replacing Obamacare in the Senate until the last minute. Before the vote, he hopped off the fence to join Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in proceeding debate after receiving assurances that his amendment for a clean repeal would receive a vote. McConnell actually lived up to his word, and Paul got his wish. A vote for the amendment to repeal Obamacare was taken yesterday, and it was voted down by a 45-55 margin. Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan… Keep Reading

Paul, Trump In Close Coordination On Health Care, McConnell Displeased

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and President Donald Trump have lately emerged as close political allies, and continue to be involved in discussions pertaining to the Obamacare repeal legislation, much to the chagrin of Republican establishment figures both within the Senate and the White House, according to a Friday report by Burgess Everett and Josh Dawsey in Politico. The article states that several White House officials and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have “long since given up on” winning over Sen. Paul’s vote for the repeal effort, with McConnell describing Paul as a “lost cause”. Despite this, Trump is continuing to… Keep Reading

Conservative Optimism Revealed By Ossoff Loss

In his article for The Nation – Jon Ossoff’s Loss Should Be a Lesson to Corporate Democrats – D.D. Guttenplan (is that even a real name? It doesn’t sound like a real name) writes, “To win Democrats need to tell voters what they’re for—and to do that effectively, they need to stop running scared and let progressives, who don’t need focus groups or consultants to know what we’re for, take the lead.” This is standard liberal fare: The problem isn’t that they have bad policies, it’s that they didn’t explain them well enough. Obama was the master of this approach… Keep Reading

Sad Clown Schumer Takes a Stand

Newly anointed Senate Minority Leader, Charles “Chuck” Schumer, has had plenty of practice during his lengthy tenure in Washington, D.C. at picking his battles and these days he’s picked a big one. Of late, the senior senator from New York has engaged himself in a game of plagiarizing pages from the Republican playbook in his effort to lead the charge against our incoming President-elect, Donald Trump. For years, President Obama and his dwindling cadre of spineless yes men and women in our nation’s capital have whined to no end about the apparent GOP master plan of “just saying no” to… Keep Reading

Cruz To Liberty Movement: No Softballs

Nearly two weeks ago, just prior to his appearance at Steve King’s Iowa Freedom Summit, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz carved out some time to meet with leading liberty activists from around Iowa. The low-key meeting, held in Des Moines, was many activists’ first time to meet the libertarian-leaning Tea Party firebrand. It was also Cruz’s first time fielding questions from a crowd comprised almost exclusively of members of the thriving Iowa Liberty Movement. Cruz opened with high praise for former Rep. Ron Paul’s rapidly-maturing political army. “The power, the energy of the Liberty Movement is inspirational,” said Cruz. “I think… Keep Reading
