Trump meets with McCarthy to plan 2022 takeover

It’s only been a week since he left office and Donald Trump is already making plans for his next steps. 

He is, no doubt, the man with a plan. 

Trump met with House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday to discuss a plan for republicans to take back the House in 2022. 

McCarthy said it was a “very good and cordial” meeting, where he welcomed Trump’s support in promoting GOP House candidates in the next election, Fox News reports. 

“House Republicans and the Trump administration achieved historic results for all Americans,” he said in a statement. “We were able to do this because we listened to and understood the concerns of our fellow citizens that had long been ignored.” 

“Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022,” he continued. “A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on.” 

“President Trump has agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House,” according to a statement from the Trump-aligned Save America Pac. “They worked very well together in the last election and picked up at least 15 seats when most predicted it would be the opposite. They will do so again, and the work has already started.” 

Despite losing the Senate and White House, republicans managed to flip a whopping 13 House seats from blue to red. And, they could pick up a 15th seat in New York in a race between republican Claudia Tenney and democrat Anthony Brandisi that has yet to be decided, Fox News reports. Democrats hold a slim 221-211 advantage in the House, putting republicans in a good spot to pick up seats during the midterms, which traditionally favor the party opposite the president. 

McCarthy shared a promising message following the meeting. 

“United and ready to win in ‘22,” he tweeted. 

Despite the fallout from the Capitol riot on January 6, McCarthy’s meeting with Trump signifies that republicans simply aren’t ready to sever all ties with Trump. Though there are some outliers, a majority of republican leaders in Congress have rejected impeaching the president, after letting the dust settle.

    We will have to rid ourselves of the Dominion machines for Republicans to ever have a chance to win an election again

    At the very least the dominion machines will have to have an actual air gap from the internet and results manually inputted with fingers and observers. The police must be given instructions if they remove a GOP observer, a Democrat observer must go with them! They leave in pairs. The other party’s should be identified as right or left and opposite of equal size leaves with them too. Anything less that should be worth a charge of election interference as should keeping opposing party’s from being with in visual sight of ballots being processed which is 1/2 an arms length.
    The people working together should expect to be working close and doing their jobs to protect the integrity of our election, not sway who wins it!
    If adjudicator’s can change ballots they must also have representation from two party’s and a requirement of two key strokes one from each to verify it was correctly decided!
    one additional safe guard since the ballots are handled to much.
    Pick randomly one major issue per work shift or hour and divide as forms are processed who they’re for, comparing the machine count to the physical representation, possibly a manual count to make sure the tabulators and adjudicator’s are doing their jobs correctly.
    Checks upon checks.
    Finally the issue in Wisconsin was reopening polls! That allowed people to rush in and change the out come, a lot of States used various methods to change when voting would end altering the outcome of the vote. Voting by mail offers many opportunities to cast doubt on who won. We need one election day.

Sen. Sinema Appears To Quickly Pull A U-Turn After Seeing Biden

Published

Joe Biden
Kyrsten Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – who dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Democrats’ election reform legislation by refusing President Biden’s push to reform Senate filibuster rules – appears to have avoided Biden as he spoke to reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats to the legislation.

In a video posted on YouTube, as Biden speaks to reporters, Sinema can be seen emerging from a Senate room in the background. As soon as Sinema appears to see Biden, she turns around and walks in the other direction.

Under current Senate rules, at least 60 senators would need to support Biden’s election reform legislation for it to pass. With the 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill for it to have any chance of passing. In order to bypass this, Biden has pushed for eliminating the filibuster, which would effectively allow Democrats to ram through their legislation.

On Thursday, Sinema announced that she did not support eliminating the filibuster to allow the bills to pass through the Senate.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema said, according to Fox News. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues,” she continued.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema added.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” Sinema stated. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”
