Given the state of the economy and the November midterm elections looming around the corner, the American people will have the opportunity to register their approval (or disappointment), and it will be interesting to see whether the Congressional Democrats hold onto slim majorities in the House and Senate.
Woodward too recited his lines perfectly when he stated that Pelosi’s committee “has written Donald Trump’s political epitaph.” That is, Woodward uncritically repeated the claim, already denied by secret service agents, that Trump “leaped from the back seat trying to grab the steering wheel.” Yes of course, and in 2018 Woodward, eager to do his bit for Hillary’s Trump-Russia collusion hoax, stated that “the investigative walls are closing in on Trump”.
There’s no trust between the American people and the US Government at this point, so it’s best if we bow out of this Ukraine stuff and allow the folks in that region to deal with their own problems. We’ve let problems in the US go by the wayside long enough. We’ve worried about other countries’ borders while they invaded ours.
Much of what Gabbard had to say about the Ukrainian labs was stated during her multiple appearances on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News. For many on that side of the political spectrum, that decision itself is traitorous of Gabbard. How dare she go on Fox News. Whether we agree with Carlson and Gabbard and their takes on the labs is irrelevant, what we should all be able to agree on is their right to say it.
Kinzinger has already announced he’s retiring from Congress at the end of the year, and that was a really good call by the Congressman. After the nonsense he’s pulled over the past year, he couldn’t get elected as a Republican if he ran for dog catcher. And consistent with his aforementioned self-righteousness and the delusion he displayed talking with the Huffington Post, he’s been hinting that he might run for governor or the U.S. Senate as well.
Clueless: The Establishment GOP Thinks This Leftist Former Wrestler And Hollywood Star Could Pose A Threat To Trump In 2024
There is then the fact that The Rock openly admits that he doesn’t “know the first thing about politics or policy.” Look, I can live with the fact that he doesn’t know about politics. As far as I am concerned, the less the better. We have seen how politicians ruin everything. That being said, not knowing about policy is a problem. Not knowing policy sums up leftism: Do whatever feels good, damn the consequences.
For those who argue that Larry Hogan is governor in a deep-blue state and that it’s better to have a RINO than a Democrat, I would ask you to look at Maryland’s next-door neighbor to the south. Virginia is also a deep-blue state, and one in which a true conservative named Glenn Youngkin was elected governor only four months ago; and he beat his Democratic opponent handily, in fact.
But Romney is an egomaniac. During the Trump presidency, he made everything about himself and repeatedly stymied the Republican agenda to show how “principled” he is. Remember when he sided with the Democrats and voted to convict Trump during the impeachment debacle?
Cheney has been censured by the State party and disowned by about one-third of the state’s Republican County committees. That’s not a ringing endorsement, and it all adds some weight to the perception created by the straw poll. But Liz will have insider money, and you need more than just registered Republican to win an election these days.
“Run again? Who cares? Trump is not the messiah and proved that pretty quickly. He may have some good ideas, good instincts, but have you heard any ideas on how to deal with the Deep State? Democrats? RINOs? The MSM – all of which will be aligned against him? Again. The same for any ‘acolyte.’ Oppose the Machine; deal with the Machine. Backed by historically gutless, spineless, brainless Republicans automatically scribbles the ‘Rest of the Story.’ Trump’s ‘values and Ideals?'”
The past six months have been a time for Republicans to choose — and they have. Some have chosen liberty, while others are enabling tyranny. Some stood as patriots, and suffered for it, while others chose to be Vichy and stand with the oppressors. Now the electorate will judge the Vichy. Next year, the voters will decide whether to reward or punish them for their treachery.
But since 2018, Mitt has been on a divergent path from conservatism. RINOs are despised by conservatives, but the term doesn’t even come close to describing the awfulness of Mitt Romney for the movement.
There was never a shortage of members of Congress who would seek out a media camera and microphone to not just disagree with Trump but also to denigrate him and his supporters, describing him and us as racist, homophobe, misogynist, transphobe, gun nut, climate denier and criminal. They even went so far as to impeach him and conduct a Senate trial over the words “you have to fight.”
