“Similarly, Justice Alito criticized attempts made to paint the entire legislature as racist based on a “racially-tinged” video and unfounded claims of voter fraud made by one politician, writing:” 1/3
“Under our form of government, legislators have a duty to exercise their judgment and to represent their constituents. It is insulting to suggest that they are mere dupes or tools.” 2/3
The court effectively rejected the institutional racism charge when applied to a legislature exercising their constitutional authority.

Maybe you noticed last night but if not I’ll fill you in. There are those on the right, people you would assume would be on “our side” and 100% MAGA who are either angry at Trump or jealous of him.

They believe this is their movement and they want it back.
They’re using all sorts of disinformation tactics to lift themselves up diminish Trump.

They are trolling Trump’s attempts to help people like @MaxMillerOH defeat RINOs like Anthony Gonzales.
Diminishing the incredible political power that has 1 million people watching a rally online and 25,00 people showing up in person 6 months after Trump lost the WH and a year and a half before the mid terms.

As though they or any of their preferred politicians could touch that.

Will Rumble allow Trump to use them as an ongoing broadcast medium?
It seems Trump does intend to use this channel as an ongoing broadcast distributor.

We will see.
Btw I’m @ sethjlevy on Rumble.

No content there though.

Did McConnell come forward once and say “We won’t allow Democrats to raid the Treasury and put $6 trillion burden on our grandchildren. Biden can have a bipartisan infrastructure deal or use reconciliation but we won’t provide any votes to a process that attempts to do both”?
Just know that later when McConnell whines about how outrageous Democrat spending is that he did nothing to actually stop it.
Name me the time that Schumer allowed ten Democrat Senators to negotiate with Trump on a bill that was a central tenant of Democrat ideology like debt and spending is for Republicans.

It never happened.

He showed up in person and blocked everything.

McConnell sold you out.

Name me the last time that a Republican House or a Republican Senate forced a vote to require free speech rights on social media?

On constitutional carry?

On ending the abuses of our alphabet agencies using national security to intrude on my privacy?
These are the issues Republicans should be dying on a hill for.

What was the biggest Republican opposition to Trump?

He might end foreign interventions.

He might end or severely curtail immigration.
They allowed people like Sasse and Cheney to openly oppose Trump on the most important issues of our day inside of some rally cry to protect “conservatism”.

Even today their opposition to Trump, including Mitch McConnell himself, is that Trump won’t just co-sign election fraud.

I had missed this.

But I think the reporter is misinterpreting the significance.

It’s another sign that Noem will challenge Thune.

“Given Noem’s ascendant profile among conservatives, the federal PAC registration is “a pretty strong signal that she probably has national aspirations,” Edwin Bender, the head of The National Institute on Money in State Politics, said.”
Of course because the national media can’t accept that the nomination in 2024 will be Donald Trump, they assume the PAC is a signal that Noem will run for President.

But if you look at how these funds can be used I think you find the true answer.

1/ “Ms. Noem is trying to cement her place as the only female Trump ally echoing the former president’s trigger-the-left approach among the upper tiers of potential 2024 candidates.”

2/ “Ms. Noem had a relatively modest profile during four terms serving in Congress and in her first year as governor. By the end of 2020, however, she had gained the notice of Mr. Trump, who was egging her on to challenge Mr. Thune in his primary next year.”
3/ “She has disclaimed any interest in such a challenge. But her coziness with Mr. Trump and her hiring of the hard-charging Lewandowski, the former president’s onetime campaign manager, has put a chill in her relationship with Mr. Thune, the second-ranking Senate Republican.”
