“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun.” So said Citizen Trump Saturday on his acquittal by the Senate of the impeachment article of “incitement of insurrection” in the Jan 6 invasion of the Capitol.

“I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all our people,” said Trump. “We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant and limitless American future.”

Translation: Donald Trump is not going anywhere soon.

The new Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, has another view.

While he had voted to acquit Trump because he saw the Senate as acting outside the Constitution in prosecuting a former president, now a private citizen, he was unequivocal about the validity of the charge.

Trump is guilty, said McConnell: “There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of (Jan. 6).”

“The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president. And having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.”

Nor had then-President Trump done his duty to stop the rioting by his followers: “He did not do his job. He did not take steps so federal law could be faithfully executed and order restored.”

McConnell was saying that Trump not only was guilty of the charge of incitement but also has disqualified himself as leader of the Republican Party, and the party should wash its hands of the former president.

If it’s Trump’s Party now, McConnell was saying, he is seceding.

Nikki Haley, whom Trump honored by naming her U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, in an interview published Friday, told Politico that Trump, “let us down. … We shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

Haley, too, has belatedly washed her hands of her benefactor.

But Sen. Lindsey Graham called McConnell’s remark a burden for the party to bear in 2022 and Trump the still-indispensable leader:

“We need to unite the party. Trump-plus is the way back in 2022. … We can’t do that without Donald Trump.”

Who is the future party leader? Who comes after Trump?

The succession struggle in the GOP is now underway. But as for now, Donald Trump is The Man, and he is not going anywhere.

As former president and most recent nominee, he is the party’s titular leader. He won the largest total of popular votes in party history, 74 million. He intends to raise millions and campaign in 2022 in states where he is wanted — and in states where he may not be wanted.

And he will likely set the issues agenda, as a media obsessed with Trump will elevate everything he says, if only to denounce it.

Yet, Trump’s immediate future is likely to see a blizzard of subpoenas from litigants and prosecutors that will take a toll of his time and resources.

Still, even if Trump cannot unite the Republican Party, he brings, far and away, the largest pile of chips to the table.


That House Republicans voted 19-1 against impeachment and Senate Republicans voted 6-1 against conviction testifies to the breadth and depth of his support. As for the Never-Trumpers, John Weaver seems to have done for the Lincoln Project what John Wilkes Booth did for Ford’s Theater.

What can reunite a party as divided as it hasn’t been since the Barry Goldwater-Nelson Rockefeller battle of 1964?

The Democrats can; the left can; the establishment can; the media can; the cancel-cultural elite can — all of whom are disliked or detested by Republicans. Its enemies can reunite the Republican Party.

The Biden crowd has already killed the Keystone XL pipeline and put federal lands off-limits to future drilling, imperiling the energy independence the GOP had achieved under Trump.

The open-borders crowd, which seeks to swamp Middle America with millions of new migrants, is seeking to emasculate U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, end deportations and tear down the Trump wall.

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom of California is in danger of being recalled and fired, and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York may be charged with misleading federal authorities about how many New Yorkers died in nursing homes because he assigned COVID-19 positive patients into rooms alongside them.

While the invasion of the Capitol was the most publicized act of mob violence in decades, it was not the most violent, nor is it the norm.

When antifa, Black Lives Matter and leftist allies smashed statues, looted and torched inner cities and attacked cops in 2020, that was the norm. And the street criminals who compiled those new records of shootings and killings last year in almost all of our cities, they were not Oath Keepers or Proud Boys.

    Sure, around “muh israel”.

  3. I wouldn’t get at all excited about potential recalls for Cuomo or Newsom. Even if they fell all that would happen is that two other Dems, in all likelihood differing from the tiresome twosome only in sex and skin color, would ascend the vacated thrones and everything would go on as usual…only worse.

  4. Uh oh, there’s the almighty radical left again. Darn it, I keep falling asleep just before Old Red Joe announces the time has come for the workers of the world to unite and seize the means of production. Or when Lock-em-up Kamala begs for forgiveness for zeroing in on young black men – refusing to reopen their cases when new DNA evidence suggested their innocence, for example – when she was DA in San Fran and CA.

    The only Left I ever hear about is those pitiful specimens wowing us with how much they know about deep intellectual concepts like “intersectionality” and “cisgender,” great wisdoms that poor ignorant deplorables are just too gauche to grasp. And how proud they are to have been fooled by black charlatans into making black self-hatred their own, only they realize it’s actually “white privilege”, so they can endlessly apologize for bad things they didn’t actually personally do to anyone.

    As for Trump, guilt is not a concept that attaches to inspiring a revolutionary action against a corrupt regime that has forfeited the consent of the governed.

    As dysfunctional as the Democrats have proven themselves to be, it is no wonder that they think President Trump is a menace to society. But for a Republican politician, it is embarrassing when they fail to comprehend that 80 million people voted for the agenda promoted by President Trump. This is the largest unity of Republican voters ever, yet the GOP is divided? The left lied, cheated and stole the 2020 Election, and there is enough evidence for litigation. How can the GOP be divided about defending the purity of voting, especially when it would expose the Democrat obscenities and would ensure Republican political dominance far into the future. President Trump seems to be the only one in D.C. to know who his Constitutionally contracted employers are.

  10. Rurik says:

    Its enemies can reunite the Republican Party.

    the worst enemies conservative America have are the (Mitt/McConnell) Republicans..

    – who, more than even the Democrats, are responsible for America’s demise.

    Hopefully Donald Trump is as vindictive as he’s purported to be, and will set about leading the Deplorables to an anti-Republican off-shoot, where someone like Nikki Haley would be as welcome as Maxine or Nancy. A new party off-shoot whose founding principle is its loathing and contempt for all the Liz Cheneys and Mitch McConnells of the world.

    Better for an openly anti-white Kamala to be in power, than a snake like Mitt or Cheney. At least America knows the score.

    As terrible as Trump has been, he’s now indispensable as a lodestone for outing America’s enemies in the Republican party. We all know the Democrats hate (especially white) America, but now with the Never-Trumpers, America can see who in the Republican party also betrays America to her enemies.

    Perhaps something of merit will arise out of the ashes of the Republican party. Now that the Democrats are openly and virulently anti-white, wouldn’t it be fun to see an openly pro-white candidate resound in the polls. Just imagine Mitt or Tom Steyer’s reaction to a party that mocks BLM and whose bumper sticker has an AR15 on its logo.

    With Trump’s help, conservative America can now rally around a movement that is defined by the Tom Steyers of the world, in so far as its principles and very ideas would drive people like Steyer to apoplectic fits.

    imagine Robert De Niro having a mental collapse into drooling, inconsolable madness, as Trump’s post-impeachment hearings make him conservative America’s political king-maker and ‘leader in exile’.

    I’d like to imagine Mitt’s political handlers telling him if he doesn’t go beg Trump in person for an endorsement, he’s not going to get reelected.

    Conservative America may be permanently disenfranchised on the national level, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have some fun.

  11. @A123

    It seems like quite a stretch to think that Mr. Trump actually had a vision. If so, I still don’t know what it was. His jumbled thinking was all over the place. He was sometimes a man of the Left, as witnessed by letting hard core criminals out of jail early, promoting his multi-billion dollar “Platinum Plan” for blacks, and suggestion to make Juneteenth a national holiday. And he cared nothing for fiscal restraint, and the exploding trillion dollar deficits, which his huge tax cuts (mainly to the rich) exacerbated.

    He was sometimes a man of the Right in his opposition to illegal (but not legal) immigration, his self-serving opposition to abortion, his opposition to trade with China (which was a failure), and his commitment to the receding American Dream and fantasy of American Exceptionalism.

    But, just like most politicians from both the left and the right, his top commitment was always Israel-first. Indeed, unwavering commitment to Israel is the “vision” which “unifies” both of our decrepit, obsolete parties. Assuming the country survives four years of the far-left, anti-White agenda of Biden/Harris intact, we need a man far better than Trump in 2024.

  12. Homeland Security Committee member suing Trump for affiliating with Violent extremists! 

    Unsurprisingly, QAnon, is not named as one of the defendants, who I have been saying that I believe is Christopher Wray who started at the FBI just prior to the appearance of QAnon, and Wray was a WANO attorney that would have had Energy Security clearance that QAnon claimed that he had.

    QShaman being a shooter that the FBI had trained as a Manchurian Candidate is proof that QAnon was involved in this conspiracy. The FBI contacted QShahman and invited him to the Stop the Steal rally. QShahman said, ” Yeah, I really want to be there.” to the FBI. The FBI refuses to disclose the identity of QAnon that they claim that they are investigating and have designated as a terrorist organization, but have kept the identity of QAnon shrouded in secrecy! The FBI had in fact worked with, and invited all of the named parties in the lawsuit.

    Sputnik reports:
    This comes three days after Trump was acquitted in a Senate impeachment trial that focused on allegations that he incited the January 6 riot at the Capitol.

    Mississippi’s Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has filed a lawsuit against the former US President Donald Trump, accusing him of inciting the deadly insurrection at the Capitol and of “conspiring with his lawyer and extremist groups” to prevent the Senate from officially certifying Joe Biden’s presidential win.  

    Apart from Trump, the case names his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, the Proud Boys, and Oath Keepers organisations as defendants. The latter’s members were charged for their involvement in the Capitol siege. – Sputnik News

    For the Left to create a successful Republican resurgence into sanity, there would have to occur a devastating event of some kind, which in turn rapidly expanded into a cascade of utter ruin. The Left would then attempt extreme measures of subjugation, and these would have to fail.

    As for the contradictions of Trump, I am reminded of how Roger Ebert was mystified by the inconsistency a screenwriter would often show. How, he mused in his reviews, could the very same screenwriter who conceived various brilliant components flip a switch, and write obvious idiocy?

    The left is not radical by any civilized standard for an industrialized nation. The right is radical in that they would rather you keep that minimum wage of $7.25/hr, starve, remain jobless and die than be provided a job, food, a decent education or health care.

    Trump remains more popular than any other Republican. Support from single issue voters interested in tax cuts is understandable. But, his support from evangelical Christians is inconsistent with his lifelong behavior. His promise of returning jobs back to homeland has never materialized. Just because the stock market is overheated with free money from the Fed does not make for the strong economy Trump claimed it was. His support for deregulation, denial of global warming will eventually be understood to be an attack on the health of our children and grandchildren. It is shameful that no Government at the local, State or Federal level has ever cleaned up the piping in Flint Michigan. Instead the money is spent on lawyers and litigation since 2014. Trump’s pursuit of hostility against Cuba, Iran and Venezuela is inhuman, illegal and exacerbating a failing US leadership globally.

    For four years the world has had to put up with mean, stupid tweets from the orange sloth.

    V.S. Naipaul famously (and notoriously) said that he can read a few paragraphs a writer has written, and be basically sure whether it was written by a man or a woman. My corollary is that I can hear a pundit or a politician (or impeachment-trial lawyer), and discern strictly from the tone whether it was spoken by a Dem or Republican. If I am correct, then, given the new US demographics, it could be that Republicans will be much less electable in the future, strictly because of the tone, the style, the warmth, of their speech.

    That’s more like it – welcome back, Pat! and this column is more like your crackling norm than that last one. We’ll forgive the little faux pas about the mostly peaceful protest at the cucky Capitol being any kind of an “invasion” – an invasion is something like Iraq & Libya & Afghanistan, something deadly Democrats like Biden, Obama, Clinton & their RINO cronies take pleasure in; not something President Trump & patriots do. But the leftist mobs look set to continue their “norm” into ’21 while Harris & Plosi look on approvingly. So you’ll have plenty to bash them for, along with turncoats McConnell & Haley & friends. Please stick to that because no one does it better.

  26. We need to ban psychotronic “weapons” aka directed energy “weapons”, and mind reading technology.

    I am begining to wonder if these were permitted by the government and heavily used by silicon valley to erode the 2nd amendment. Weapons is a poor term for these, but they were named that. They are technically really spy devices and torture instruments. They do not have the capability of stopping anyone or immediately killing anyone. Weapons are designed for the purpose of self defense. If someone breaks into your home, psychotronic “weapons”, directed energy “weapons”, and mind reading technology will not protect you or stop them, thereby making the assertion that they are weapons, a ridiculous claim.

    They should be called directed energy audio torture tools and psychotronic torture tools.

    I believe that they were designed as a psy-op, and for intellectual property theft, and for sadistic torture, which does not constitute a weapon. Since people were tortured by being water boarded with towels and water, it does not mean that towels and water should rightfully be classified as weapons.

    Low IQ losers club of Retarded MICIMATT InfraTard serial criminal psychopaths trying to cheat their way through life have been using them on me for over 3 years, and during my mourning the loss of my Mother, brother, and dog. I honestly hope that they are sentenced to death, or at least in federal pennitentiaries for the rest of their lives. Anyone that has to cowardly and anonymously invade someone else’s life like that against the will of their victim obviously has nothing to contribute to this world, and obviously does not qualify for anything other than an absolute monster, like Josef Mengela, and the world would definitely be better off if the monster was dead.

    The Democrats can; the left can; the establishment can; the media can; the cancel-cultural elite can — all of whom are disliked or detested by Republicans. Its enemies can reunite the Republican Party.

    The enemies of Trumpism can also reunite the Trumpists. And that is exactly what the cuck RINOs have done. If they were better politicians they would know their Machiavelli:

    “If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.”
    ― Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince

    If they even slightly understood the 85% of the party base who are devoted to Trump they would know that these people are motivated by a visceral disgust for elitist corruption and disloyalty. They always grow more loyal to Trump when he is attacked by the vicious Swamp Creatures of either party.

    The RINOs have demonstrated strikingly bad political judgment (and bad math skills). They basically worked with the Democrats to try to destroy Trump so that they could go back to being useless RINOs without being accountable to the populist base. But can’t they remember way back to 2016 when National Review’s “Never Trump” edition came out and mega-cuck Mitt Romney told everyone not to vote Trump. How well did that work? The scorn of The Swamp just proves that Trump with all his flaws is, in fact, the bona fide champion of the people.

    Backstabbing Trump has predictably made him more popular. And the RINOs have accomplished nothing besides self-identifying as turncoats, so that they can be more easily purged by the 85% of the highly motivated base who want them gone.

  49. Trump will be giving a speech at CPAC next week, on his vision of America’s future.

    Trump has destroyed all of his credibility with his high crimes and treason that he perpetrated against Americans, none of which were brought up in the impeachment hearings or numerous lawsuits filed against Trump.

    Just as the Starr investigation focussed on Monica Lewisnsky, and totally ignored the serial crime spree committed by the Clintons, which has continued to this day, the Trump impeachments focussed on false allegations of colluding with Russia and incitement and insurrection charges, and ignored all of his other high crimes and treason. Neither Clinton or Trump are innocent people. They simply weren’t charged for the crimes that they were guilty of, because all or most of congress was colluding with them.

    All recent presidents, and most past presidents were also guilty of high crimes and treason, but nobody expanded the police state / surveillance state more than Trump with the exception of George W. Bush with the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and The Patriot Act.

    Trump also placed the interests of the terrorist state of Israel above the interests of the United States more than any president in recent U.S. history. 

    Trump has proven that he is corrupt, incompetent, and a complete fraud. 

    Supporting Trump is supporting further erosion of the liberties protected in the constitution, further expansion of the police state/ surveillance state, further support of Wall Street corruption,  further support of the terrorist nation of Israel, and further support of crimes against humanity.

    I honestly hope that he and all of the politicians die. They are evil oppressors and frauds that reward evil, serial criminal psychopaths and exploit everyone else to further their evil, self-serving agendas!

    Who in the hell do they think that they are?! We do not have to play by their illegal felonious rules,  as much as they would like us to believe that, since they are so mentally incompetent that they cannot play by the rules ( The U.S. Constitution ) and have to try to cheat their way through life!
