    By SCOTT BAUER, Associated Press MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A pair of President Donald Trumps top advisers touted him to Wisconsin Republicans on Saturday as a defender of law and order who will win over key Black voters, while casting presumed Democratic rival Joe Biden as out of touch and Bidens party as a “mob” bent on erasing American history. The strategists headlined the state Republican convention, which the party held in-person at a Green Bay convention center despite the...
    Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) told Breitbart News Tonight that the Republican and Democrat proposal to tie President Donald Trump’s hands from withdrawing from Afghanistan is “egregious” and “exactly the opposite of what we should do.” Banks — a member of the House Armed Services Committee and a veteran who served in Afghanistan — spoke to Breitbart News Tonight host Rebecca Mansour after Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the chair of the House Republican Conference, cosponsored an amendment with Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) to the National...
    President Donald Trump (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) President Donald Trump‘s divisive rhetoric appears to be starting to catch up with him. With the Republican National Convention approaching next month, support for the incumbent among his own party could be dwindling. USA Today reports that an increasing number of Republicans are “fed up” with the president and split from him for various reasons, including his stance on wearing a mask during the coronavirus pandemic, his tone addressing race relations...
    As near as I can tell it began in 1995, when Republicans won control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years and captured a Senate majority. By “it” I mean the accusation that Republicans and especially conservatives (not always the same) are “divisive.” One reads and hears this from every media outlet and Democrats in Congress. President Trump is dividing America. Talk radio is divisive. The right-wing is undermining our “unity.” NEWT GINGRICH: WHY TRUMPS...
    The deep state Republicans are alive and well and doing what you’d expect them to be doing. They are living proof that President Donald Trump is a genuine change agent. The world he is changing is their world, and they hate him for it. In the near future, these deep state Republicans will drop the pretense of still belonging to the Party of Abraham Lincoln and become Democrats. These are, after all, people who have grown deeply uncomfortable not just...

              The Minnesota DFL Party launched a new ad campaign this week targeting key Republican state senators who are accused of “standing in the way of passing real police reform.” Jason Lewis, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, said in a recent interview that Democrats don’t “want reform” so much as they “want a political issue.” U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) made similar comments after Democrats blocked his police reform bill from being put...
    A partisan battle is brewing over whether to reopen the nation’s public schools in the coming weeks. The fight is likely to play a central role in the upcoming debate in Congress over the next round of coronavirus aid. President Trump on Friday threatened to block federal funding to school systems that do not reopen in the fall, while Democrats say the Trump administration is putting lives at risk by trying to coerce schools to reopen while the virus...

    In Senate races across the country, Democratic contenders are raising vast sums to unseat sitting Republican Senators in an effort to retake the majority in November, according to a report. Amy McGrath, a former Marine Corps fighter pilot, vying to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has raised a stunning $17.4 million to launch her battle for the Kentucky seat which McConnell has held since 1985, according to the LA Times. Sara Gideon, Democratic Speaker of the House in...
    Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski The Republican Party and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski have always had a rocky relationship. The daughter of Senate giant Frank Murkowski, she has always seemed an odd fit for a party that has evolved ever right.  She was appointed to her seat in 2002, and cruised easily with a primary victory in 2004 before squeaking out a general election win 49-46. But in 2010, during the apex of the frothy tea party-movement, Murkowski was ousted in the...
    Newt Gingrich is usually, and rightly, blamed for destroying American politics, even more than Donald Trump. The former House Speaker didn’t go to Washington in the 1970s to strike deals. He went there to wage soft civil war against the United States. This article was originally published at The Editorial Board But if there’s a close second to the title of America’s Worst Person, it probably goes to someone you never heard of. He’s not a politician. He’s not a pundit or...

    Republican strategists have begun to wonder whether Donald Trump is reaching the point of no return, according to Cook Political Reports Amy Walter. Its not just about the terrible data points for Trump, which are plentiful. Its about a total collapse of public confidence in him with no chance for recovery among a majority of voters. But whats even more stunning is that, however dim Trumps reelection prospects look (and they look potentially landslide dim), most GOP candidates are running...

    Ill say this for McConnell, hes a helluva liberal motivator. If fundraising translates into votes, Mitch McConnells Senate majority is toast. Okay, we all know that it doesnt work that way, but fundraising translates to enthusiasm and enthusiasm can definitely translate to votes. So, yes, Majority Leader McConnells freak-out over the filibuster is well-founded, and will be intensified now that fundraising information for the second quarter has been released. As CBS News puts it, Democratic Senate candidates have smashed fundraising...
