Will Steve Bannon Be The Key To Defeating Senator Angus King?

Since being elected to the United States Senate, former Maine Governor Angus King has become a prominent member of the upper chamber. His popularity in Maine goes without saying. Despite not being officially supported by a political party, he was elected twice to Governor in the nineties and then beat out both major parties for U.S. Senate. Given he caucuses with Democrats and is dominantly liberal, he is a target for Republicans and grassroots conservatives alike. But can he be defeated? With a lack of a serious and credible candidate, not likely. According to reports, Steve Bannon is setting his… Keep Reading

Kid Rock’s Senate Competition Is The Infamous Libertarian Convention Streaker

Observers who thought that Michigan politics could not get any more ridiculous and entertaining after Donald Trump carried the state unexpectedly last year were not anticipating the spectacle that the 2018 U.S. Senate race is shaping up to be. Career politician Debbie Stabenow is facing a possible Senate challenge from Kid Rock, who has given overtures that he will mount a Trump-style scorched Earth campaign as a Republican, but a new unexpected face has entered the mix: James Weeks II, better known as the man who bared all during the Libertarian National Convention last year. A native son of Michigan,… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Endorses Judge Roy Moore: He Will “Stand On Principle” With Me In The Senate

One day after announcing support from Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Judge Roy Moore followed it up with another marquee endorsement. This time, it is Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) vouching for the outsider who defeated his establishment-backed challenger handily last month in a GOP runoff primary election in Alabama. “Judge Roy Moore has spent a lifetime defending and standing up for the Constitution while fighting for the people of Alabama,” Paul said in a press release from the Moore campaign. “We need more people in Washington, D.C. that will stand on principle and defend the Constitution. I look forward to welcoming… Keep Reading

Libertarian Republican Likely To Primary Challenge Wyoming Senator

Libertarian Republican Erik Prince is strongly considering a run against incumbent Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), according a report by the New York Times. Barrasso is a fairly average Republican Senator, voting consistently with his party leadership, and is said to be close to Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Barrasso currently serves as the Chair of the Senate Environment Committee. Prince has reportedly travelled to Wyoming with his family in order to seek residency there. Prince had previously resided in the state during the 1990s and early 2000s, according to public records. Keep Reading

‘Flake The Snake’ Throws Roy Moore Under The Bus To Virtue-Signal For Radical Islam

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has turned into one of the least popular politicians in America for standing against President Donald Trump’s populist revolution that has swept the nation. He spent the better part of last year trying to get Hillary Clinton into the oval office, and now he has set his sights on Judge Roy Moore. Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore is a Donald Trump Republican. Despite not being endorsed by Trump (a move that the President publicly admitted may have been a mistake), Moore campaigned as the ultimate iconoclast and soundly defeated his establishment-backed opponent in the… Keep Reading

Harvard Shames Women With Endorsement Of Sexist Austin Petersen’s US Senate Campaign

Any young woman who has organized conservatives or libertarians on campus can tell you first hand that sexism is a lingering problem. Dealing with young males emboldened by this toxic culture is hard enough, but leadership figures exhibiting blatant misogyny is over the line. And it is what I experienced first hand from perpetual candidate Austin Petersen. Petersen is running a Republican campaign for the U.S. Senate in Missouri right now, and I was never expecting him to gain much traction. That is what was so shocking about seeing the Harvard Political Review, of all places, essentially endorsing Austin Petersen’s… Keep Reading

Senator Bob Corker Announces Retirement As The Establishment Exodus Continues

It’s been a difficult week for Senate Republicans. Senator Luther Strange, a heavy favorite by the Republican mainstream to win the Alabama primary, lost to former State Supreme Court justice Roy Moore by a wide margin. This comes after the failure of a last minute attempt to repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, an effort led by Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham. Now, a prominent Republican Senator has announced his retirement. Senator Bob Corker has announced that, at the conclusion of his term in 2018, he will not seek re-election. First elected in 2006, he… Keep Reading

The Liberty Conservative has announced that it is endorsing Judge Roy Moore in the special election for U.S. Senate in Alabama. Moore is set to face establishment stalwart Sen.

If elected, Moore has pledged to stand up to Mitch McConnell, and to stand with Senate conservatives such as Rand Paul and Mike Lee.

Fake News Tries To Downplay Kid Rock’s Senate Chances With Suspect Poll

Kid Rock’s Senate prospects have never looked brighter, but the mainstream media is trying to throw a wrench into all of that. They pushed a poll that showed that Kid Rock is far behind his prospective opponent, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI). The Marketing Resource Group, a Michigan-based polling firm, claims that Kid Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, is losing to Stabenow by a massive 52-to-34 percent margin.

President Trump Bets On Big Loser, Cannot Fill Seats In Alabama For Luther Strange Rally

Once again, President Donald Trump was played for a sap by the GOP establishment. After endorsing Sen. Mitch McConnell’s crony Luther Strange against his hard-right constitutional challenger last month, Trump is now planning to stump for Strange this Friday. There is only one problem though: Nobody is showing up to hear Trump’s doublespeak. White House officials told Breitbart News that they are having trouble filling up a large venue on behalf of Strange, the establishment crony who was appointed to his position in the U.S. Senate by disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley. Organizers are downsizing to a smaller venue than… Keep Reading

Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore is entering the final stretch of his Senate campaign before the special election runoff on Sept. 26.

John McCain’s Brain Tumor And Two Escaped Housewives Kill Obamacare Repeal

John McCain and his tumor-ridden shell of a body giddily cast the deciding vote killing “skinny repeal” yesterday. In doing so, Traitor McCain cemented his legacy of treason and undermining his constituents wishes whilst simultaneously making President Trump’s path going forward infinitely more difficult. This is truly a record he and the Viet Cong communists who captured and turned him can hang their hats on. For those who are unaware, this is not the first time Senator McCain has been a disloyal traitor to those in his camp.

After Health Care Fiasco, Mike Huckabee Calls For 17th Amendment To Be Repealed

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is fighting mad after the Senate refused to repeal Obamacare this week. He has an idea for a reform that would take us back to the original intent of the Constitution by repealing the 17th Amendment, which allowed for the popular vote of senators. “Time to repeal 17th Amendment. Founders had it right-Senators chosen by state legislatures,” Huckabee wrote in a first Tweet that set off a host of angry responses from liberals and conservatives alike. Undeterred by the negative feedback, Huckabee re-emphasized his earlier statement with a follow-up Tweet. “Ignorance of history of 17th… 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.

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

Sanders Challenged By Democrat Who Blames The Senator For Trump’s Win

Disgruntled Democrats have blamed Hillary Clinton’s decisive election loss to Russian hacking, and, among other reasons, on FBI Director James Comey. But Jon Svitavsky blames Clinton’s Democratic challenger during the primaries, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for Trump’s victory. “I hold him absolutely, centrally responsible for Donald Trump being president,” Svitavsky said. Svitavsky, a Clinton supporter whose energies are usually devoted to championing the homeless, is channeling his anger against Sanders by entering politics for the first time and running against him–even though Sanders has not yet made his campaign for re-election official.

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.

Mulvaney Testifies That Trump’s Pro-growth Policy Will Help Balance The Budget

Today, the Senate Budget Committee heard testimony on President Trump’s 2018 Budget. Today’s witness was Mick Mulvaney, director of OMB. Each Senator had five minutes to ask questions about the proposed budget. Most Senators chose to make long statements for the cameras. Very few questions asked by either side were made in an attempt to actually understand something that they did not already know. One of the leading issues raised by the minority party was that Trump assumed 2.9% growth each year for the next 10 years. Almost every Democrat Senator mentioned this issue and how irresponsible it is for… Keep Reading
