‘President Trump’s Popularity Has Never Been Stronger’

Editor’s Note: The link above provides a very helpful and continually updated timeline of President Select Biden’s “First 100 Days.”

Trump met with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy at the ex-president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on January 28 and agreed to have his Save America committee help the Republican Party as it tries to win a majority of House seats in 2022.

“President Trump has agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House,” Save America says in a statement. It calls the meeting “very good and cordial.”

“President Trump’s popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time,” the committee says.

Paul’s effort to stop Senate trial on Trump fails, but tally shows GOP won’t supply votes to convict

Senator Rand Paul full remarks

The Senate on Tuesday derailed an effort by Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul to force the chamber to vote on the constitutionality of holding an impeachment trial for former President Trump. But the 55-45 vote tally that stopped the effort was a clear indicator that Senate Republicans support Paul’s constitutional argument and won’t supply enough votes for chamber Democrats to convict Trump. 

The move made good on the libertarian-minded Paul’s promise earlier in the day to force such a vote — and perhaps end the trial before it starts next month.

The five Republicans senators who joined Democrats were Susan Collins, of Maine; Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska; Mitt Romney, of Utah; Ben Sasse, of Nebraska; and Pat Toomey, of Pennsylvania.

Leftist Harvard Students and Alums Want to ‘Revoke Degrees’ of Trump Officials and Allies

Deeemed Contrary to “Strengthening Democracy, Advancement of Justice”

Editor’s Note: The fact that associates of America’s most “prestigious” higher ed institution are partaking in such an extreme political witch hunt should give any prudent and fair-minded family pause before sending their children off for early adult indoctrination in almost every US university.

Graduate students and alumni of the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS)  have launched a campaign and petition to revoke the degrees earned by Harvard alumni who worked in the Trump administration and Harvard grads in Congress who support the president. 

“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes — rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression — incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” reads the petition, which is headlined “Revoke Their Degrees.”

“This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election,” it states. “They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy‘ and ‘the advancement of justice.

A Letter from the Nye County Chairman

Nye County Republican Party
January 8, 2021

Update: some have asked why I didn’t sign my name to this post.  The answer is simple: the intended audience was our rural membership and they all know me. 

As I write to you today, I have no doubt that this letter will find many of you crushed under the weight of despair or perhaps lost in a maze of confusion. It is my hope that by the time you finish reading this letter you will be able to confidently join millions of others who support the president and another four years. 

Let me be clear: Trump will be president for another four years. Biden will not be president. Yes, I know those are shocking words in these crazy days. 

I have been approached by many saying, “It’s over…” and “Trump conceded the election…”. Nothing of the sort has taken place. Go back and listen to the videos all the way through. At no point does Trump even mention Biden’s name. At no point does he say he concedes. He does say that there will be a peaceful transition to a new administration and he does say that this is only the beginning. Those phrases are important to note. Indeed, we will have a new administration made up of a new vice president and cabinet as the current ones have all made their treason complete. I will touch on this in more detail shortly. 

We do well to remember that for more than four years Donald Trump has been five steps ahead of everyone in every attempt to derail him, impeach him, or confound him. For example, he announced on election night in the early hours of the morning that he “didn’t want a dump of ballots at 4AM.” What happened in just a few short hours at almost exactly 4AM? A huge ballot dump took place which showed that he already knew that it was going to take place. That was a public word to the enemies of our country that he was on to them. 

Also, consider the recent incident at the capitol building in DC. Trump was late to his speaking engagement and then spoke on a number of rehashed things to the crowd of 500K+ but this created a problem. You see, if Trump had spoken on time and briefly, the MAGA crowd would have been at the capitol building with the Antifa faction and likely would have been drawn into the fray by accident and confusion due to the crowd size. With Trump speaking late and long, the MAGA crowd was PROTECTED and SEPARATED from the Antifa groups. It would be very clear that the disguised Antifa people were 95%+ of the people in the building. Again, Trump countered because he was steps ahead of them. This was clearly a staged event meant to blame Trump supporters and try to frame Trump so the 25th amendment could be used by Congress but it failed. Nevermind the numerous videos showing the police opening the gates for Antifa (they didn’t fight their way in) and then leading them throughout the building.   

I say all this as only two examples out of many that at no point has our president been in a fight of desperation.

Over The Past Week, 5 Republican Lawmakers Have Suddenly Died

Michael Snyder
January 3, 2021

Have you noticed that quite a few prominent Republicans have been dropping dead lately?  At a time of the year when most people are at home celebrating the holidays with their families, Republican lawmakers have been dying one after another.  Of course important people die all the time, but to have this many Republican politicians die so closely to one another is definitely unusual.  I believe that 2021 is going to be a very strange year, and it has definitely gotten off to a very strange start.

As the days move forward, let’s watch and see if the pattern continues and more Republicans suddenly pass away.  For now, these are the deaths that we know about so far…

On January 1st, the death of Virginia State Senator Ben Chafin Jr. made headlines all over the country

Virginia state Sen. Ben Chafin Jr. has died after contracting Covid-19, according to a statement from his office. He was 60 years old.

“State Senator Augustus Benton (Ben) Chafin, Jr., a native son of Russell County located in Southwest Virginia, passed away on January 1, 2021 from Covid-19 complications,” the statement said.

On January 2nd, Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus chairman Mike Reese suddenly died from “an apparent brain aneurysm”

MIAMI – The fight over the 2020 Presidential Election is hitting home for one of Florida’s congressional lawmakers.

Dozens of protestors gathered at Miami’s West End Park Saturday, marching to the home of Sen. Marco Rubio.

They are demanding that he reject the Electoral College totals that show Joe Biden won the race for President or they will vote him out.

“We want to send a direct message to Senator Marco Rubio to do everything possible in his power to not certify this fraudulent election,” said Chris Nelson, a supporter of President Donald Trump.

Ted Cruz Leads Senators In Challenge To Wednesday Electoral Count; Demands Emergency Audit

ZeroHedge
January 2, 2020

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is leading a group of 11 Senators who plan to object to certifying state Electoral College votes on Wednesday.

The group, which includes Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), John Kennedy (R-La.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), and Mike Braun (R-Ind.), and Senators-Elect Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), and Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), are also calling for the resurrection of an Electoral Commission to conduct an emergency audit of the results.

According to Axios, the move pits the group of GOP Senators against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had ‘hoped to avoid the spectacle of his party leading a last-ditch effort to prevent Joe Biden from being declared the 2020 election winner.’

GOP electors cast votes for Trump in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania

Washington Times
December 14, 2020

Republican electors in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania cast votes for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on Monday in hopes a court might overturn Joseph R. Biden’s win, even as the Electoral College voted across the nation to certify the Democrat’s victory.

Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer said Republican electors met at the state capitol to cast votes for Mr. Trump because a Trump campaign lawsuit challenging the state’s election is still pending.

“Had we not meet today and cast our votes, the President’s pending election contest would have been effectively mooted. Our action today preserves his rights under Georgia law,” Mr. Shafer tweeted.


The Pennsylvania GOP said the Trump campaign asked Republican electors to vote for Mr. Trump to preserve the right to another legal challenge that could overturn Mr. Biden’s win.

“We took this procedural vote to preserve any legal claims that may be presented going forward,” Trumpcampaign Pennsylvania chair Bernie Comfort said in a statement.
