Donald Trump Makes it Official: Trump Will Hold Rally in Downtown Phoenix, AZ … Maybe He Will Pardon Sheriff Joe and Endorse Primary Challenge Against Sen. Flake

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE AND HOLD RALLY IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA …

President Donald Trump has made it official, he will hold a rally in downtown Phoenix, AZ next Tuesday. President Trump’s tweet read, “Join me at 7:00 P.M. on Tuesday, August 22nd in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Convention Center!” The Democrat Mayor of Phoenix asked Trump to postpone the event, The Donald took it under advisement and said, I don’t think so. President Trump will go around the bias, liberal media and talk directly to the America people. Look for President Trump to endorse a GOP primary challenger against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) who has been nothing but a disappointment. Trump tweeted regarding Flake, “Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!” Also, it would be great is President Trump used this as the backdrop to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign-style rally in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday, making his first presidential trip to the West as his administration confronts an uproar over his tepid response to a deadly white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump will take the stage at the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m., according to an announcement Wednesday morning. Attendees must register to obtain tickets.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton wrote in a statement Wednesday he was disappointed to learn of Trump’s visit so close to the violent events in Charlottesville. The mayor called on Trump to delay the visit. [...]

And Flake, who is running for re-election in 2018, this month published a book critical of “Trumpism,” calling for a “rejection of destructive politics and a return to principle.” Trump has threatened to help finance a Republican challenger to Flake — saying he’d provide $10 million — but it’s unclear if he will follow through.

The visit also comes as Trump has discussed a presidential pardon for another controversial Arizona Republican, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 85, who has been convicted of criminal contempt after a judge found he had defied a court order intended to stamp out his signature immigration patrols.

Despite Trump & McConnell’s Support, Alabama Senator Luther Strange Struggles to a Primary Finish against Real Conservative Republicans

THE BEST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN IS THAT MCCONNELL ESTABLISHMENT TOADIE SEN. LUTHER STRANGE LOSES THE PRIMARY!!!

To the good people of Alabama, DRAIN THE SWAMP!!! On Tuesday you have an opportunity to make your voices heard and push back against the establishment, RINO’s in Washington, DC. GOP Senate Majority leaders Mitch McConnell’s choice, Sen. Luther Strange, is limping his way across the finish line. Do not let this hand-picked McConnell toadie win and replace the seat of Sen. Jeff Sessions with the likes of this.. A vote for Strange is a vote for McConnell. The Republican electorate needs to Ditch Mitch, not make him more powerful. Alabama, vote for the conservatives, not the RINO establishment candidate who is nothing more than a McConnell suck up. Alabama is a deep red state with conservative values, vote like it and send a message to the GOP establishment everywhere that we are sick of their games, lies and lack of representation. The fact of the matter is that Democrats will never win the senate seat in Alabama. If the GOP grassroots elects in the primary a true conservative, they will be elected in the general election.

This is your big chance to let your voice be heard, don’t wast the opportunity!

Senator Luther Strange of Alabama wields an endorsement from the president of the United States, is the beneficiary of a multimillion-dollar campaign from allies of Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, and has the backing of influential conservative interest groups like the National Rifle Association.

But Mr. Strange is wheezing into Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary here. He is grasping to secure a second-place finish and a slot in a September runoff with Roy S. Moore, the twice-deposed former State Supreme Court justice and evangelical-voter favorite who is expected to be the top vote-getter but may fall short of the majority needed to win outright.

Mr. Strange is in a political vise, pinched by his links to a pair of Republicans, one local and one national, held in low esteem by many in the party here: the disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley, who appointed Mr. Strange, and Mr. McConnell.

Ditch_Mitch

Personally, I am disgusted that President Trump would back this McConnell stooge. The fact that Trump endorsed with McConnell stooge greatly surprises and annoys me. After the war of words between Trump and McConnell over the Senate majority leader sating that Trump had “excessive  expectations,” it is troublesome that Trump would continue to back the very gutless Republican politician that make up the swamp. This is a political warning shot President Trump, if you do not do what you promises and drain the swamp and continue to back McConnell senate toadies, you will lose my vote.

Yet the ad campaign by the McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund — while doing significant damage to a third Republican candidate in the race, Representative Mo Brooks, a hard-line conservative — has also highlighted Mr. Strange’s ties to the congressional Republican leadership. And it has come at a moment when conservatives are furious at lawmakers for not repealing the Affordable Care Act and Mr. Trump is placing much of the blame at the feet of Mr. McConnell.

Naturally, Mr. Strange’s rivals have seized on his ties to Mr. McConnell. At a candidate forum in nearby Trussville this month, one of Mr. Brooks’s top applause lines was a call for Mr. McConnell to be removed as the party’s Senate leader.

In an interview near his campaign bus, a “Ditch Mitch” banner fastened to the front, Mr. Brooks even found a way to invoke Mr. McConnell when pressed about Mr. Trump’s decision to endorse Mr. Strange.

A NOTE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU BETTER DAMN WILL FIGURE OUT WHO YOUR BASE IS AND WHO SUPPORTS YOU AND IT AIN’T MCCONNELL GOP SELLOUTS!

WTF!!! GOP Senate Majority Leader McConnell Whines Senate Failures are Due to Trump’s & Others Have “Excessive Expectations” (VIDEO)

AMERICA, IT’S TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP, REPUBLICANS NEED NEW LEADERSHIP AND NEW SENATORS … DITCH MITCH!!!

WTF, McConnell must go!!!  Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blamed President Trump for the Senate’s lack of getting anything dome on Monday by stating the fault lies with President Trump’s “excessive expectations” of the legislative process. McConnell said, “Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.” WHAT! You are blaming President Trump for your lack of leadership? EXPECTATIONS? Are you kidding me!!! It is the American people that had expectations because of your promises that were obviously lies. For 7 years you made promises to the America people that if the GOP was given the Senate, you would repeal Obamacare. You even passes a BS repeal bill that was for nothing but show. Then you whined that the Republicans needed a GOP president who would sign an Obamacare repeal bill to be elected and the American people provided that too. You haven’t done much because you haven’t done much and because you suck!!! Maybe the reason why Donald Trump and the American people had expectations was because your lies gave them the expectations.

McConnell, you are exactly what is wrong in Washington, DC and you need to be sent packing as soon as possible. Retire, step down, just leave. You, not Trump, YOU have failed the people. God forbid anyone have expectations from the SWAMP, and for that reason about 90% of you should be voted out of office. What kind of a loser are you that you would blame other for your failings. YOU HAVE HAD HOW LONG AND YOU GAVE US NOTHING. Yes Mitch, the President and We the People have expectations of Congress and if you can’t deliver, GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY!!! You don’t just get to stay in the Senate for life and do nothing.

Just how out of touch is McConnell? Does he have any comprehension why Donald Trump pulled off one of the greatest political upsets in American history and won the 2016 presidential election? People wanted change. They wanted the repeal of Obamacare! They wanted America first! Either get on board Mitch or leave.

FLASHBACK 2013: RINO Mitch McConnell Promises to Repeal Obamacare ‘Root and Branch’

Via The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday expressed frustration with what he called President Trump’s “excessive expectations” of the legislative process as Republicans struggle to chalk up major achievements under a united government.

During a speech to the Florence Rotary Club in Kentucky, McConnell said many of Trump’s “artificial deadlines” are “unrelated to reality,” indicating the president may not fully grasp the ins and outs of lawmaking.

“Now our new president has of course not been in this line of work before. And I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell said.

“And so, part of the reason I think people feel like we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines unrelated to the reality and the complexity of legislature may not have been fully understood.”

McConnell’s speech comes less than two weeks after the Senate failed by one vote to move forward on plans to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Trump took to Twitter to criticize McConnell, calling for changes to the legislative filibuster, which the majority leader has rejected in the past.

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Switches Parties to Republican at Trump Rally Last Night! (VIDEO)

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WOWS THEM IN WEST VIRGINIA …

Last night President Donald Trump took his “MAGA” tour to the state of West Virginia. A state that was once a blue collar, coal mining Democrat blue strong hold that now is as red a one can be. He was received by throngs of admiring West Virginians at the rally. Trump stated to the crowd, “we didn’t win because of Russia, we won because of you.” And this is what Democrats, the MSM and the LEFT just don’t get and cannot stomach. They can complain all they want about Hillary’s loss and attempt a coup with this Mueller witch hunt, but keep in mind, the American people are not buying it. For those that say, but look at the polls, Trump’s support is low. How accurate were those polls for the 2016 elections? The MSM are trying to spin a yarn of BS. Any one with a brain knows that. However, Trump’s presence was not the only magical moment last night in WV as Governor Jim Justice shocked the crowd by anouncing he was switching parties and  becoming a Republican.  Gov. Justice said, “Like it or not, but the Democrats walked away from me. West Virginia, I can’t help you anymore by being a Democratic governor.”

Democratic Governor of West Virginia Jim Justice announced he is switching to the Republican Party at President Donald Trump’s rally in his state on Thursday evening.

“Today, I tell you as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” said Justice. “So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.”

Earlier in the day, Trump teased a “big announcement” at the event in Huntington, West Virginia. Thursday night, he praised the 6-foot-7-inch governor he nicknamed “Big Jim” for “show[ing] the country our agenda rises above left or right.”

News of Justice’s plans, which were first reported by The New York Times, surprised Republicans and Democrats alike in West Virginia. Prior to the news, the West Virginia GOP had even published an ill-timed tweet attacking Justice for being “low-energy.”

But in a statement obtained by ABC News earlier today, the West Virginia GOP Chairman Conrad Lucas said, “We look forward to Governor Justice reflecting the conservative values of our Party and platform.”

Lucas added to ABC News, “The rumors about Justice switching parties had been percolating since the legislative session. This wasn’t a new rumor for us at all.”

Governor Jim Justice will be the 34th Republican governor in the US today.

It’s not immediately clear why Justice is doing an about-face. But the fact he is underscores just how fragile Democrats’ hold on power is. With one politician’s decision to switch parties, Democrats now hold a record-low number of governorships — and Republicans hold a record high.

Justice will be the 34th Republican governor, tying an all-time high for the party. Republicans now control both the governor’s mansions and state legislatures in 26 states. Democrats have total control in just six states. (In 2018, they’ll have a chance to pick up governorships, with Republicans defending 27 of 38 seats, many in blue or purple states.)

U.S. Senate Blocks Republican Health Bill in Midnight Vote, 3 GOP Senators Vote against (Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, John McCain)

SENATE FAIL … ATTEMPTS TO REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE FAILS, A POX ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES!!!

Overnight, the U.S. Senate blocked the latest attempt by the GOP to repeal Obamacare. The so-called Skinny repeal failed by one vote as three Republican Senators voted “no” to the bill. And just who were the three GOP lawmakers who blocked the bill? It was RINO’s Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona in a 49-51 vote. UNREAL. Gee McCain, we are just so glad you returned to act a Judas. You should have stayed home. Don’t ever lecture us again, just go home and retire. Once again, McCain shows he would rather side with Democrats, than his own party and fulfill his promise to replace and replace Obamacare. Good riddance. RINO and liar Sen. Murkowski stated that she would not be pressured by President Trump. Hmm, how about pressured by what you told fellow Alaskans in your promise to repeal Obamacare (VIDEO)? Because God forbid these power hungry politicians tell the truth and not lie to get elected.

SENATE FAILURE … YOU FAILED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

A months-long effort by Senate Republicans to pass health legislation collapsed early Friday after GOP Senator John McCain joined two of his colleagues to block a stripped-down Obamacare repeal bill.

“I regret that our efforts were simply not enough, this time,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor after the vote. “This is clearly a disappointing moment.”

“It’s time to move on,” he added after pulling the bill from the floor.

The decision by McCain to vote no came after weeks of brinkmanship and after his dramatic return from cancer treatment to cast the 50th vote to start debate on the bill earlier this week. The GOP’s ‘skinny’ repeal bill was defeated 49-51, falling just short of the 50 votes needed to advance it. Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski also voted against it.

It wasn’t immediately clear what the next steps would be for the Republicans. The repeal effort had appeared to collapse several times before, only to be revived. And several Republicans pleaded for their colleagues not to give up, even as President Donald Trump blasted the vote.

Trump_tweet_3 senators fail

After 7 years of bitching and moaning about Obamacare and claiming they would repeal or repeal and replace Obamacare, in the end, it was all a lie. In 7 years the Republicans had no solutions, just lies to get reelected. All of you should be ashamed and the GOP leadership should step down and make room for individuals who can lead. As for the GOP Senators who broke their word to the American people that you would repeal it to get elected, you need to be primary challenged and thrown out of office. To the Democrats who sat on their hands and cheered as as if Obamacare is some great thing for the American people, you need to be voted out of office immediately. It is too bad that President Trump actually bought into the GOP swamps lies. Following the Skinny repeal fail Trump tweeted at 2:25 am Washington time:  “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down, As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!” And implode it will as it is already in the process of doing so.
