Some Republicans Decry Trump’s Corrupt Efforts To Muddy Election Results

A number of prominent Republicans have been pushing back against President Donald Trump as he attempts to undermine the legitimacy of the election by falsely declaring victory before the ballots were counted and pledging to shut down vote tallying through the courts.

Marco Rubio (R-FL) tweeted. “...

Santorum Makes Wild Comparison Between Proud Boys And Protesters

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R) on Wednesday said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s apparent failure to “go after his own” amid spats of violence during recent protests was just as bas as President Trump’s refusal during Tuesday night’s debate to  condemn white supremacy.

Santorum: Put workers first in emergency legislation

We are all coming to terms with the economic consequences of the extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in because of the coronavirus. Who could have foreseen that self-distancing would turn into being self-quarantined with businesses all over the country shutting down? The situation became even more dire with some governors and mayors closing all "non-essential" businesses. Californians and New Yorkers are even being ordered to stay home.

"I stumbled into a strategy, that is.

Trump Uses Pardons To Reward His Friends And Justify His Own Actions

The President’s latest wave of pardons on Tuesday — primarily benefiting, as usual, his political allies — was a little more on the nose than normal. Why? Because of Paul Pogue. The construction company owner served three years of probation for tax fraud, having underpaid the government $473,000. Just months ago, Pogue’s family did something they’d never done before: Donate huge sums to the President’s reelection effort. Pogue’s son and daughter-in-law donated more than $200,000 to the Trump ...

Trump Got Tons of Campaign Cash Before Handing Out Pardon

President Donald Trump on Tuesday granted clemency to 11 people, including several convicted felons who are either Fox News regulars or have been championed by the president’s favorite cable-news network. And in another case, the family of one pardon recipient dished out massive contributions to the president’s re-election campaign just months before Trump’s clemency spree.Among those granted pardons or sentence commutations were former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was sentenced to 14 year...

Or that politicians who affix that label to themselves are bound to lose their House and Senate seats in November. Or that state houses are bound to flip to the Republicans when voters next go to the polls. For all I know "The Democrats" will have a banner year at the ballot box.Yet the De...

Rick Santorum: Getting Iowa right is more important than getting it quickly
