Mike Pence's ill-starred presidential run

Original Article

Posted By: Moritz55, 6/6/2023 6:40:58 PM

On paper, has there ever been a more qualified candidate for president than Mike Pence? Twelve years in the House of Representatives, four as governor of Indiana, and four as vice president of the United States. No president in at least the last 30 years has come to office with that kind of resume. And yet Pence, who this week becomes a candidate for the 2024 Republican nomination, is in a nearly impossible situation. Or maybe a totally impossible situation. And it all traces back to his four years with President Donald Trump in the White House — the period that should have set him up


Why is he putting himself through this? There is no way he can win the nomination, and even if he did, a large percentage of conservatives would never vote for him. Talk about an exercise in futility!

All Pres. Trump has to say to Pence is "You had the power to stop this disastrous Biden administration from happening, and you didn't use it.".

I have heard Mr. Pence speak in person a couple of times. He sounded good, and I liked him. Then he did not stand up against 'The Steal', and instead stabbed President Trump in the back. NO WAY he's going to get the nomination.

I'm confused. Can the Vice President actually 'throw out the result in some key states votes?' Or does he have the right to 'question' the result of some votes in key states, asking to look into the results?

Well there is a reason why this nation has only elected two men from congress as president in the last century, JFK and Obama. Both former senators and both as unqualified as they come. This nation prefers to see a governor or somebody special like Trump elected to the office of president. Mike might look good on paper, but he is a complete and total weasel.

I agree with #12. The bit about Pence’s being able and expected to toss out some states’ electoral results has been a deliberate falsehood to make PDJT look nad. The VP as president of the Senate could have returned some to the respective states for review and possible correction. That is my recollection without looking up the process.

Loyalty is important and acting like a RINO wannabe not helpful. Pence cannot get the nomination nor a cabinet post in the new Trump administration. Actually this is all moot, Democrat cheating will make Biden or some other Democrat president, and with courtroom help, little more than a cakewalk. Arizona is the most recent proving ground.

Russiagate: The Scandal That Became Business

Posted by Moritz55 6/8/2023 12:57:46 PM Post Reply
Special Counsel John Durham may have issued his final report last month, but the Russiagate scandal is far from over. This is not because there is no more to learn about the years-long effort by the Democratic Party, the FBI, CIA, and major news outlets to advance the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump teamed with Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 election. Rather it’s because Russiagate never ended. Unlike political scandals of the past – from the XYZ Affair to Watergate and Iran-Contra – it is not a discrete set of events with a beginning, middle, and end. Instead, it has become a form of governing in which the entrenched forces

I suspect that Chris Christie’s fondest dream — a dream, that is, not involving calorie intake — is to reprise his barrage against Marco Rubio with Donald Trump as the target. Christie’s preferred rhetorical weapon is the blunderbuss, and he can be quite effective. I used to delight in watching his fusillades against whining public school teachers and, truth be told, I snickered a little watching him blow a hole in Marco Rubio’s presidential aspirations. Can he do the same thing to Donald Trump? That’s his hope. Christie, who is set to announce his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination in New Hampshire today, is basically running as an anti-Trump

The FBI is willing to allow all members of the House Oversight Committee to view the subpoenaed document that alleges President Biden was involved in a criminal bribery scheme, a source familiar told Fox News Digital. The source familiar said all members of the panel would be able to view the document in question — an FBI-generated 1023 form — in a secure location. It is unclear whether the secure location would be in a SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) on Capitol Hill or at the FBI's headquarters.

PRINEVILLE, Ore. The continuing Greater Idaho movement to shift Oregon's border west so that much of Eastern Oregon joins its neighbor to the east claimed two wins Wednesday -- avoiding a recall of a razor-thin seven-vote win in Wallowa County and the Crook County Court's vote to put the advisory measure on next May's ballot. Here's their news release. (Keep in mind that any such state line realignment would need approval by the legislatures of both states -- and by Congress as well): The Wallowa County Clerk stated last night that the Greater Idaho ballot measure has avoided a recount because the election results were not close enough to trigger a recount. CORRECTIONS*

Up until two years ago, it would only take 12 hours for coal mined deep in a labyrinth operation 60 miles from here to go from that underground mine, through a high-tech cleaning procedure, and be loaded on a barge or rail car and brought to the Cheswick Generating Station, a coal-fired power plant, to light communities along the Allegheny River for generations. That efficient process came to an end in September 2021 when owner GenOn Holdings announced the then-51-year-old facility, one that environmental groups had in their sights for years, decided to retire the plant.

Mike Pence is officially running for president. Why? Well, because he wants to be president—that much has been clear since he accepted an invitation to be Donald Trump’s running mate in 2016 despite his obvious incompatibility with Trump as a matter of both personal comportment and ideology. Among other things, Pence was a “traditional family values” guy and national security “hawk” vis-à-vis figures like Vladimir Putin; joining the Trump campaign was pretty obviously a case of careerism over principle. And when you’re ambitious, and you’re the vice president, the next job you’re probably looking for is the big one!

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has the White House worried, and rightly so: Boys who shout “The emperor has no clothes” have an impact. So far, the Bidenites are relying on their media allies to maul RFK Jr., Politico reports. Problem is, the reason the challenger’s running at 20% in primary polls has less to do with his last name (even Marianne Williamson’s at 8%) than with President Biden’s incredible weakness. Biden’s record is beyond atrocious, and at 80, he’s showing signs of serious decline. Voters — most definitely including Democrats — know it. So even someone as flaky as RFK Jr. starts to look appealing.

America! The land of the free. A place for second chances. But if you’re a foreigner who wants to keep basking in the aforementioned freedom, the one thing you probably shouldn’t do is write about your excessive drug use in a memoir when you’re on a visa. That’s the mistake made by Prince Harry, who now faces legal action that could end with his deportation back to Britain. You’d think a royal armed with the best schooling (and lawyers) money can buy would know that. But as is clear from Prince Harry’s latest debacle, hundreds of thousands of the finest British pounds in tuition will only get you so far.

A recently resurfaced photo of Democrat Kentucky Gov.

"This is just another example of how out of touch Andy Beshear is with our values. He’s the governor of Kentucky, not California," Cameron told Fox News Digital.

There is one fundamental question that any candidate vying for the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 2024 must answer — but that as of yet has gone largely unaddressed, at least publicly, as the field spars over significant but ultimately subordinate issues. The question is this: How will you win the general election under the present voting system? An inability to answer this question clearly, compellingly, and convincingly imperils Republican odds of retaking the White House, no matter how favorable their prospects might look come next November. It is incumbent on anyone who wants to earn the Republican presidential nomination to answer this question at the outset,

Pence, launching his campaign in a suburb of Des Moines, became the first vice president in modern history to challenge the president under whom he served.
