    Senators learn the hard way about the fallout from turning on Trump

    Trump vs Congress: GOP senators at odds with the President

    Republican senators who have been a thorn in President Trump's side are beginning to see the political consequences of opposing the White House as pro-Trump activists start to mobilize.

    Just this week, it was revealed that conservative billionaire and Trump benefactor Robert Mercer would be contributing $300,000 to a super PAC supporting a primary challenger to Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake. The Republican lawmaker has sparred with Trump on immigration and is promoting a book that argues the GOP is in “denial” about the president.

    Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller – who gave only tepid support to Trump’s presidential bid and the subsequent push to repeal and replace ObamaCare – also learned this week he would face a primary challenge from a Trump backer who has run unsuccessfully for Senate before.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, too, is feeling the heat from Trump and his base as the president vents about the Kentucky Republican’s inability to get health care legislation passed.

    Flake, though, has been the most overt about his displeasure with the president -- making the TV rounds to discuss his book ahead of his re-election race next year.

    "If this was our Faustian bargain, then it was not worth it," Flake writes in "Conscience of a Conservative." "If ultimately our principles were so malleable as to no longer be principles, then what was the point of political victories in the first place?"

    The White House has not shied from hitting back.

    “I think Senator Flake would serve his constituents much better if he was less focused on writing a book and attacking the president than passing legislation,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said last week when asked if the president would back a challenger.

    Politico first reported, though, that Mercer plans to donate to the super PAC backing Flake challenger Kelli Ward, a former state senator who unsuccessfully ran against Arizona Sen. John McCain in 2016.

    Speaking to Fox News’ Dana Perino on "The Story" last week, Flake denied being worried about a primary challenge.

    “I'm going to run, run hard, have a good campaign, and I feel good about it,” the senator said.

    Like Flake, Heller is facing a primary challenge in Nevada from the right: businessman Danny Tarkanian, the son of legendary Nevada basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian.

    Heller has long been considered vulnerable but his efforts to at least avoid a primary challenge grew more complicated when he declined to back the Republican-controlled Senate’s early ObamaCare overhaul plan.

    At one point, a pro-Trump group called America First Policies briefly took out advertisements against Heller over his health care stance.

    GOP SEN. HELLER DRAWS 2018 PRIMARY CHALLENGE FROM TRUMP SUPPORTER

    Heller ultimately backed a scaled-back measure. But the overall repeal effort failed, denying Trump, at least for now, his first major legislative victory.

    Still, some Republicans are skeptical about Tarkanian’s chances. The candidate most recently lost a 2016 GOP primary bid for the seat of retiring Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid.

    "I think that Dean Heller has opened himself up to a challenge, but I don't think that Danny is the person to make that successful challenge," Republican strategist Rory McShane said Wednesday. "Beating Dean Heller would take the support of a lot of national groups like Club for Growth and the National Association of Gun Rights. It would be tough for Danny to win a primary without a lot of those national groups behind him."

    Meanwhile, McConnell, who is not up for re-election this year, has been facing the wrath of Trump and his supporters after saying in a speech that Trump had “excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process."

    “Hey Kentucky--time to tell @SenateMajLdr McConnell to stop rolling over for the Dems, advance the Trump agenda, or step aside,” conservative radio host Laura Ingraham tweeted Thursday.

    Trump himself has been dinging McConnell on Twitter for not getting a health care bill through the Senate, despite Republicans pledging to repeal ObamaCare for years.

    “Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done,” the president tweeted. “Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!”

    Fox News' Joseph Weber contributed to this report.

    Top GOP Donor and Former Trump Operatives Sign on with Kelli Ward to Defeat #NeverTrump RINO Jeff Flake

    Jim Hoft Aug 11th, 2017 8:16 am 31 Comments

    Arizona Junior Senator Jeff Flake ran as a conservative and rules like a RINO.
    The former Representative is a vocal supporter of amnesty and often speaks out against President Donald Trump.


    Flake said he could not support the GOP nominee before the election.



    Now top Trump campaign operatives are joining her campaign as consultants.

    [​IMG]
    The Daily Caller
    The Daily Caller reported:

    Dr. Kelli Ward, who unsuccessfully challenged Sen. John McCain in the 2016 primaries, is now taking on Sen. Jeff Flake in the 2018 Arizona Senate primary.

    “I, as well as others, are frustrated with Senator Flake’s weak style,” Ward told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview Thursday. “He hasn’t accomplished a thing in D.C., and his values do not align with the people of Arizona.”

    Ward is bringing on two political operatives with ties to the president, Eric Beach and Brent Lowder. The two men will serve as general consultants for the campaign, TheDCNF has learned.

    Beach is the founder and co-chair of Great America PAC, and Lowder is it’s executive director. The Great America PAC raised and spent close to $30 million in support of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

    And there’s this…
    Just this week, it was revealed that conservative billionaire and Trump benefactor Robert Mercer would be contributing $300,000 to a super PAC supporting a primary challenger to Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake.


    Hopefully this horrible RINO will get tossed in the GOP primary.

    Hey Shootist, if you get a really nice t-shirt made up, I'll buy one. It can have a representation of a gallows, with several nooses hanging, just waiting for deserving necks to be inserted. The caption, just beneath the illustration, would read "The day of the rope is coming soon!" On the back it would read "Politics as usual must come to an end!" I think it would be a hit.

    Trump heads to Arizona - hulloh @SenJohnMcCain and @JeffFlake

    8:13 AM - Aug 16, 2017

    Trump will reportedly endorse the primary opponent of vocal #NeverTrumper Jeff Flake.

    The Washington Times reported:

    Mr. Trump is leaning towards endorsing Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit, state Republican sources told The Washington Times, in a move that could help crystalize the race.

    Mr. DeWit, who was chairman of the Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign in Arizona, has been eyeing the race but has not yet announced his candidacy.

    #NeverTrumper Jeff Flake has an 18% approval in the state. Trump has an approval of 43%.

    3 more traitorous maggots show their true colors. Again. They are owned by soros and do not care what we the people think or want.

    We have a lot of work to do folks. President Trump is tireless working for us but even he needs our help.

    McCain, Romney, and Rubio Join the Republicans for Antifa Club

    As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.”

    On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes.


    McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

    No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.

    ✔@SenJohnMcCain
    There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so

    9:02 PM - Aug 15, 2017

    Neither of these gentlemen can claim ignorance of Antifa; the reason both of them piped up is that President Donald Trump mentioned them in his Tuesday press conference. Left-wing politicians and media personalities responded by thundering “there is only one side” for all right-thinking Americans to be on, because there was only one squad of villains on the ground in Charlottesville.

    McCain and Romney obediently bent the knee to this narrative. At the very least, they’re agreeing Antifa should be invisible, accepting the incredibly stupid idea that calling out their violence somehow dilutes criticism of the Tiki Torch Terror. Mentioning Antifa is damned under the left’s new doctrine of “Whataboutism,” which originally held that history began with the inauguration of President Trump and all prior Democrat sins were absolved, but has mutated into an unlimited free pass for the #Resistance to do whatever it takes to bring down the Trump administration without a peep of protest from tame Republicans.

    Senator Marco Rubio went much, much further. He launched a brief tweetstorm that completely absolved Antifa of all responsibility for its actions in Charlottesville, blaming all violence “one hundred percent” on those who organized the events leading to the “Charlottesville terrorist attack” (the vehicular homicide perpetrated by James Alex Fields Jr.)


    Most astoundingly, Rubio embraced the Crybully Creed, the left-wing fascist idea that hate speech justifies a violent response. Your speech is violence; their violence is speech. Yes, Rubio used exactly those words in his third tweet.

    Rubio’s third tweet explicitly endorses violent responses to hate speech, but the last one is the money shot, as Rubio embraces the essence of Whataboutism and agrees with the media that left-wing thuggery is a fact on the Charlottesville ground that must be ignored if we are to properly condemn white nationalism.

    McCain and Romney are politically irrelevant, but Rubio still has political ambitions. Imagine the priceless look of surprise on his face when he gets branded a Nazi because he favors pro-growth tax cuts, free-market reforms, or balks at allowing illegal aliens to vote. He’ll be so astounded at the way “hate speech” is expanded to cover his policy positions, and how the next wave of Antifa thugs justifies a violent response.

    In the highly unlikely event that a reporter asks McCain, Romney, or Rubio “What about Antifa?” they would probably mutter some boilerplate about how of course violence is not the answer. The problem is that their position implicitly accepts (explicitly, in Rubio’s case) that violence is at least somewhat understandable when it comes from the left. The core criticism of Trump is that he wasn’t full-throated and unequivocal in condemning the Nazi wannabees, but the violence of groups like Antifa, Occupy Wall Street, and Black Lives Matter never gets full-throated and unequivocal condemnation.

    Democrat politicians are completely firewalled from left-wing violence. They are never expected to denounce lefty vandals, brutes, or assassins. Democrat officials routinely look the other way when left-wing thuggery is perpetrated in their precincts — it’s a nationwide epidemic, with outbreaks nearly everywhere Democrats are in charge — but somehow it’s the Republican Party that gets treated as uniquely susceptible to the contagion of extremism.

    Every Republican politician jumping on the “Only One Side” bandwagon is endorsing the idea that his or her own constituents are so vulnerable to the siren song of white nationalism that allowing a little group of racist pinheads to congregate in a public place is unacceptably dangerous. Believe me, ladies and gentlemen of the GOP, your acceptance of this narrative will come back to haunt you, no matter how moderate and reasonable you imagine yourself to be.

    Over at the Weekly Standard, Michael Warren argues that Trump had a duty to “denounce specifically and unequivocally the white nationalists whose demonstration last weekend in Virginia became violent,” even though Warren acknowledges “there were left-wing counter-protesters who were also violent and antagonistic in Charlottesville.”

    White nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and other racist groups who marched through the University of Virginia’s campus and in Charlottesville last weekend did so because they have been empowered by the presidency of Donald Trump. Don’t take my word for it. Look at the photos of those wearing “Make America Great Again” hats in Charlottesville. Listen to the words of arch-racist David Duke, who said his goal in attending the Charlottesville event was to “fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.” Remember that one of the rally’s organizers, chief alt-rightist Richard Spencer, once said his movement has a “psychic connection” with Trump. Scroll through the countless Twitter accounts with swastikas and racist memes posted in between or alongside statements of support for Trump’s candidacy and presidency.

    Given all this, Trump has a duty—as the president of the United States, as the head of a major political party, as a decent American—to make clear that these people are mistaken, that white supremacists and neo-Nazis have nothing in common with Trump’s agenda or his vision for the country. It does no good to say, in the same breath, that “both sides” are a part of the problem. The problem is that one side, the violent, racist side, believes they have an ally in the White House. And they have increasingly good reason to think that.

    I don’t know, Mr. Warren — the violent left is looking awfully “emboldened” to me at the moment, and they seem firmly convinced they have powerful political allies in Washington, too. There are a lot more of them than there are “white nationalists,” and Antifa has a unique stranglehold on higher education. Have the Nazi wannabes been able to shut down any campus speeches yet, or dictate the content of university courses?

    President Barack Obama couldn’t bring himself to unequivocally condemn Islamic terrorism without bringing up the Crusades. Few Democrats can condemn Palestinian atrocities without cursing the Israeli government. It’s a staple of left-wing discourse that all parties share the blame when arguments escalate into violence, most criminals should be seen as victims of society, and even violent extremists have legitimate “grievances” that must be explored. If unequivocal condemnation is coming back in style, the list of the condemned can reasonably begin with neo-Nazis, but it shouldn’t end with them.

    Also, if we’re holding Trump accountable for every unpleasant character who dons a MAGA hat, then why aren’t we holding Bernie Sanders accountable for the fervent supporter who tried to gun down half the Republican caucus at a baseball field? Democrats get to float serenely above the ugly words and deeds of their supporters, but Republicans are personally responsible for the actions of everyone who votes for them? Nuts to that. The time for double standards is over.

    Double standards are one of the reasons Trump was elected. People who committed no crime are tired of being treated unfairly in the pursuit of cosmic “social justice.” Republicans are tired of watching Democrats skate for political offenses that would end any GOP career. They’re tired of watching the left manipulate opinion with ugly rhetoric and lowest-common-denominator emotional appeals — just a few weeks ago, Republicans were accused of attempted murder for trying to repeal Obamacare — while every conservative with an ounce of passion is dismissed as a “populist” huckster.

    The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is one of the finest expressions of uncompromising principle in human history. In order to maintain that standard, we must protect speech and assembly rights for the unsavory, and then use free speech to demolish their toxic ideas. Professing allegiance to the First Amendment while authorizing vigilante gangs to shut down disapproved speech with the Heckler’s Veto — or clubs and broken bottles, when the Heckler’s Veto doesn’t get the job done — is not good enough. “The First Amendment doesn’t cover hate speech” is a much more dangerous, far more contagious fascist ideal than anything snarled over a tiki torch in Charlottesville.

    Frankly, if you can’t win an argument with a handful of Nazis without resorting to violence, you suck at freedom. If you can’t damn the swastika without also cursing the hammer and sickle, you suck at history.

    Trump is quite capable of politically destroying his political enemies. He is gaining incredible strength, and the RINOs know it. McConnell will pay for his sins. Welcher!
    I think Trump has something up his sleeves in regard to McMaster. I am not sure why he puts up with his crap. Is it "keep your friends close and your enemies closer"?

    Rubio has diarrhea of the mouth because the government of Venezuela is trying to assassinate him. He now has bodyguards and in order to keep them on the government payroll instead of his he must tow the establishment line.

    POLL: Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky Approval Rating Plummets Amid Questions About Future As Senate Leader

    Joshua Caplan Aug 21st, 2017 2:33 pm Leave a Comment

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is having a bad summer. A very bad summer to be exact. The Kentucky Senator is finally in the rare position of leading the GOP with control of the House, Senate and White House — yet, McConnell is struggling to forward President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda. To make matters worse, poll numbers in McConell’s home state are tanking amid President Trump questioning the lawmaker’s future as Senate Leader of the Republican Party.

    Breitbart News reports:

    The approval rating of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has plummeted to just 18 percent, a survey from Public Policy Polling has found.

    The poll, which surveyed 645 Kentucky voters, found that just 18 percent of respondents approved of McConnell’s current performance, compared to 74 percent who disapproved. Seven percent of people said they were not sure.

    McConnell, who is the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Kentucky history, having represented the state since 1984, was recently criticized by President Trump for failing to pass the healthcare reform bill through the Senate.

    “Can you believe that Mitch McConnell who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done,” Trump wrote on Twitter earlier this month. “Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing.”

    Hope for Arizona.

    Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He's toxic!

    6:56 AM - Aug 17, 2017

    From the latest Arizona poll:

    Incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is underwater badly in his home state, with just 21 percent of Arizona Republicans supporting him for reelection against challenger Dr. Kelli Ward—who gets 47 percent support—per a new poll from JMC Analytics.

    Jeff Flake is underwater at 22/67 among Republicans.

    Seeing as both the Republican and Democratic parties are comprised of the very same type of criminals and tyrants, I doubt these organizations care what the American people think they're going to do to 'fix' those Republican RINO bastards. They're in a win/win situation in Washington. There is no turning back from where we are now. Either the world will go full totalitarian as America is destroyed by the jewish controlled communists or America digs in and starts taking things back by their own hands.

    The RINO maggots think we are weak metrosexuals like they are. They think we are cowed and they are superior.
    That's what happens when the only voices you listen to are fellow maggots who agree with you.

    Developing: Four Swing Seat Republicans in Minnesota REFUSE to Back Antifa Paul Ryan
    by Jim Hoft 120 Comments
    [​IMG]

    FOR OVER A YEAR conservatives, Trump supporters and American patriots have been assaulted, spit on, beaten, cold-cocked, egged, chased, tackled and bloodied for attending Trump rallies and conservative events.
    On Saturday Antifa thugs chased, beat, spit on and pepper-sprayed a group of Trump supporters in Berkeley, California.

    Nancy Pelosi condemned antifa terrorists – Paul Ryan has refused to condemn these same terrorists.
    On Wednesday four swing seat Republicans in Minnesota refused to endorse Paul Ryan for Speaker.
    The Hill reported:

    Four Republican congressional candidates in Minnesota refused to commit their support to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) when asked about him at a candidate forum.

    In a video from the Minnesota State Fair, the four would not say whether they’d support Ryan if he runs for Speaker in the next Congress.

    The video was first reported on by The Washington Post.

    Yep. I just found a solid explanation on why there hasn't been any comey/clinton perp walks yet. Hussein stacked the DC courts with communists.
    So if we arrest a swamp maggot they will go in front of a hussein prosecutor and a hussein judge. Then they walk and can never be tried for those crimes again.

    Nothing is as easy as it looks. I will stop picking on AG Sessions now and figure he knows what he is doing.
    The fish aren't going anywhere so it makes no sense to move until there is no way they can escape.

    Hmm, let’s see. Sessions brings charges. An Obama prosecutor is put in charge of it. An Obama judge rules on it.

    What are the odds that you’ll get the justice you’re wanting? Go on. Take a wild guess….





    James Comey Drafted Conclusion in Clinton Probe Prior to FBI Interviewing Key Witnesses…
    Posted on August 31, 2017 by sundance

    In a letter from Senator Chuck Grassley to new FBI Director Christopher Wray (full pdf below) the senator outlines some disturbing information discovered in documents reviewed by the judicial committee.

    Chief among the issues was a discovery that fired FBI Director James Comey had already drafted a preliminary conclusion that Hillary Clinton was not going to be held responsible; the FBI Director’s position was created in April and May 2016 before sixteen key investigative witnesses, including Mrs. Clinton herself, were even interviewed.

    [​IMG]

    The revelations within the documents provides even more evidence that FBI Director James Comey was running a political investigation and using the FBI to cover-up for the Clinton email crimes.

    WASHINGTON DC – […] The Judiciary Committee reviewed transcripts, which were heavily redacted, indicating Comey began drafting the exoneration statement in April or May 2016, before the FBI interviewed up to 17 key witnesses, including Clinton and some of her close aides.

    Comey’s work on the statement also came before the Justice Department entered into immunity agreements with Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff while she was Secretary of State, and Heather Samuelson, who served as the State Department’s White House liaison.


    Comey announced in July 2016 the FBI wouldn’t recommend criminal charges against Clinton.

    Democrats in Congress alleged last fall that Comey’s actions in the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email use violated the Hatch Act, which caused the Office of Special Counsel to launch an investigation. (Read More)

    Here’s the letter from Senator Grassley and the Senate Judiciary Committee:

    These RINOs make me want to puke, so this is great. With that said, I am still very concerned with our voting system. The status quo is just not going to go quietly in the night. They will fight. The corruption needs to be exposed on a massive level quickly with overwhelming evidence and proof that it is irrefutable. No partisan bullshit, evidence inflicting both sides for all Americans to see. After that, this nation can begin the long healing process for our sick Republic.

    Establishment Republican Charlie Dent Announces Retirement from Congress

    [​IMG]
    Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/Getty

    by BEN KEW7 Sep 2017264

    Establishment Congressman Charlie Dent (R-PA) has announced he will not seek re-election in 2018, amid fury amongst the Republican base over his repeated attempts to block President Donald Trump’s agenda.

    The decision follows a rally that took place in Dent’s home state of Pennsylvania protesting Dent’s ongoing obstruction of President Donald Trump.

    Since Trump took office in January, Dent has voted against defunding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider; stifled his efforts of health care reform; and opposed a temporary ban of people from six high-risk countries from entering the United States.

    Dent also serves as co-chair of the “Tuesday Group,” which describes itself as the “moderate” wing of the GOP and has previously claimed he considers himself part of the “governing wing of the Republican party.”


    “I’ve worked to instill stability, certainty, and predictability in Washington,” Dent said in a statement. “I’ve fought to fulfill the basic functions of government, like keeping the lights on and preventing default. Regrettably, that has not been easy given the disruptive outside influences that profit from increased polarization and ideological rigidity that leads to dysfunction, disorder and chaos.”

    “But I have also had a stake in major legislative accomplishments: budget agreements that prioritize our federal commitments, pro-growth trade, and tax policy, initiatives to advance medical innovation and research, major infrastructure investments, and policies that secure our homeland.”

    The decision comes after State Rep. Justin Simmons, who spoke at this week’s “No Surrender” rally, confirmed he would challenge Dent in a primary, branding him “the most liberal Republican in Congress.”

    “I guess the polling must have been really bad. Can’t say we were expecting this,” Simmons said on hearing the news. “I think right now we could say, ‘Mission Accomplished.’ We wanted to make sure we got a more conservative candidate in the seat, and now we can do that.”
