It’s Not Just the Democrats’ HR 1 or HR 4, the So-Called “Corrupt Politicians Act.” Other “Reforms” are Afoot. Canada’s federal election on Monday featured what they call a “first past the post” election – whoever gets the most votes in a “riding” (what they call parliamentary districts) wins the election, even if no one […]

Jim and Greg applaud Senate Republicans for standing strong and voting against the partisan election reform bill offered by Democrats. They also blast China for forcing the last remaining pro-democracy newspaper in Hong Kong to close its doors. Finally, they sigh at the news that it will take at least a week or longer to find out who won the Democratic primary for mayor of New York City.

The Epoch Times has just reported that Senator Manchin will vote against H.R. 1, which, if passed, would federalize our elections and, I think,  make the continuation of the republic as it stands practically impossible.  I don’t know about you but I’m going to send him a donation.  Maybe this is just political survival for him, […]

One of the more distasteful aspects of the 2020 election was local election boards accepting substantial private donations for “official” election operations. My now-former home of Delaware County, Pennsylvania, was one, accepting a $2.2 million private donation to fund the placement of 32 dropboxes and to promote voting by mail, on a narrow 2-1 vote by […]

But can we really trust Joe Manchin to live up to promises to protect the filibuster? Non-partisan pollster Scott Rasmussen released results from a new poll on the Democrat’s “For The People” Act, HR 1. House Democrats voted in lockstep to pass the bill with 220 votes last week (minus US Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-MS) […]

President Trump at CPAC 2021: We Must and Will Win

 

trump hot-rodPresident Trump pulled no punches. He is not supporting creation of a new party, insisting that the Republican Party must be the party of the U.S. Constitution and the American people, against the socialist, globalist Democrats, media, tech giants, and the RINOs. He pointed to all the promises he kept, despite Congress. He named names and promised to work for a Republican Party grounded in “Trumpism,” which he defined in a series of statements that sound like what the GOP has been paying lip service to for decades.

What follows is a lightly cleaned up (proper capitalization instead of ALL CAPS, plus obvious Close Captioning errors corrected) version of the C-SPAN transcription of President Trump’s 2021 CPAC address. Follow that link for the superior C-SPAN video (no annoying graphics and commentary). I italicized what seem to be his off-script riffs. I added logical paragraph returns and some section headers to help you read through this lengthy address. I bolded a few points. Finally, I added a few links.

Last March, when public schools and college campuses announced their closing in states all over the nation, and the lockdown quickly tightened on small businesses everywhere, the message coming from “pro Covid” forces was as follows: “This will not go away any time soon.” Their assessment proved correct, empowered as it was by determination. Preview […]
