TERRELL: ‘If he starts a new party, I and 75 million plus go with President Trump’

The Senate leadership needs to step up and identify themselves either as Trump republicans or what I call country club republicans.”

In the wake of Joe Biden’s inauguration, rumors are swirling that President Trump may be looking to start his own political party, the Patriot Party. 

Leo Terrell appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight with a reaction. 

“Let me answer that and thank you for allowing me to be on the program, Lou,” he said. “I am a Trump supporter. I will follow Donald Trump.”

Terrell called out the Senate leadership for failing to take a solid stance on the impeachment trial and their loyalty to President Trump. 

“The republican party is at a crossroad,” he said. “The Senate leadership needs to step up and identify themselves either as Trump republicans or what I call country club republicans,” he added. “I am very disappointed and upset with the Senate leadership and Lou, as this Senate impeachment trial hangs over the president, we need to know where the republican senators stand because I honestly believe that the Donald Trump republican party – 75 million strong – changed the republican party. It’s a party that was enlarged. It brought me over. It enlarged the base. You know why, Lou? Because Donald Trump put Americans first.”

Terrell urged that if President Trump starts a new political party, he will join it. 

“These Americans that are in the Senate need to step up and identify themselves as to where they stand. If not, I go with President Trump. If he starts a new party, I and 75 million plus go with President Trump.”

“I concur with your analysis on McCarthy and McConnell. I find it disingenuous for those two leaders, so called leaders, to comment on a decision regarding the impeachment proceeding without hearing the evidence,” he said. 

Terrell called the impeachment trial “frivolous.” 

“I’m a lawyer, and last time I checked, I thought I heard Donald Trump on January 6th exercise his first amendment right. Lou, I didn’t hear anything from Donald Trump’s speech and I challenge the democrats and these two republicans to point out what did he do to warrant this impeachment, which I call frivolous and this frivolous trial.” 

“And I will submit to you also right now that what Kevin McCarthy and what Mitch McConnnell are doing, they are carrying the water for the democrats. They are basically being used by the democrats to bring down the most productive president in four years. People dislike Donald Trump’s personality, but I’ll tell you right now, he accomplished more than any of his predecessors in four years,” he concluded.

      Dude, it was biden (lower case letters did intentionally) that said something like: “If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.” Now, he’s put hundreds out of work with a stroke of a pen.

    But there is still a problem: Rampant fraud in blue states run by democrats!, plus corupt polititians, corrupt judges,
    corrupt courts,corrupt election officials, the voting machines that facilitated the fraud are still there.
    It doesnt matter if Trump still have his 75 million voters to vote for him again, the election can be stolen again.
    The only way it will be possible of a clean election, is to make the “dirty democrat states” where the fraud was commited leading to the “stolen election from Trump, make the democrats stay away 500 feet from all election equipment and let an independent party handle the voting machines, vote counting, eledction results report same night. I firmly believe the senate election was stolen in Georgia too, it lead to a recount where it was stolen a 2nd time. But the republicans deserve to lose the senate for their behavior.

      Leo you and all these Trump supporters must still be on the Lysol injections you lost the election. You are a black man Trump said you were to stupid to vote for him. He slapped blacks and hispanics in the face and you keep following. He told Ted Cruz his wife was ugly and his father was in on the JFK killing and Ted is still licking Trumps boots.

    I am one of the 75 million deplorables, I will without question join with President Trump if he forms a new party. In just a few short days of this so called new administration many of the great things Trump accomplished is being overturned. I am with Donald Trump!!! It is beyond shameful what is going on with this false impeachment. The so called Republicans need to go, primary time is around the corner.

      You are right Teresa. It has bad connotations with extreme right-wing. It should be something non-partisan, like constitutionalists or free-speech, since the cancellations have been enduring. Also, the tea party was ravaged by Republicans by the IRS and dividing them. This party if created needs to learn from that.

    Amen Leo–right on the money! McConnel and McCarthy somehow believe rolling-over on Trump will make life easier for them. They shpuld know better! It is a Dem ploy to divide and conquer that the Repub leaders just don’t see. If they turn on Trump this loyal republican will vote third party!

    I agree with Terell. We are with Trump no these self righteous so called Republicans. McConnell and McCarthy can kiss my behind. How dare they not stand up to this sham of an election.

    I support the transformed Republican Party. The Party of we the people. All my life I’ve said a pox on both their houses but now there’s a Party I can support. If Trump can continue to lead it and build on it, that’s fine with me. But as a practical matter, if he runs in ’24 he’ll be 78 and I firmly believe that a majority of the electorate, after 4 more years of an aged Biden, will be looking for a much younger and charismatic leader. The Republican Party or a Patriot Party needs to keep that in mind. If Trump becomes ‘a king maker’, the winnowing needs to start now. Currently it’s 74 million against 82 million. What’s the Party going to do to capture the hearts and minds of enough of those 82 million to win? A separate Patriot Party may simply split the Republican vote and the Democrats win again. So the Democrats will be cheering if a split happens. We also need a Party that does not depend on Trump being the leader. It must be able to continue without him. He’s not getting any younger.

    Yes, the Democratic Party has gone mad. A big chunk of the Republican Party has been tainted and corrupted. A new political party leaded by our POTUS would be awesome. All the ones who love and treasure this country, law and order, would join. TRUMP is the MAN! ????????????????????????

    I agree with you Leo! 75 Million Americans will go with Donald Trump where ever that is & people like Mitch McConnell & Jevin McCarthy will be left to their own devices. To impeach Prsident Trump with no evidence, to even call him out with no aevidence is absolute insanity on the part of either side if the aisle!!!

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Published

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”
