America First Congressmen Mark Meadows to Retire in 2020

Published

on

North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows, a staunch America First supporter, announced on Thursday, December 19, 2019 that he is retiring from Congress at the end of his term in office.

Meadows served North Carolina’s 11th District for four terms.

In a statement, Meadows said that he “struggled” with leaving what has generally considered to be a “temporary job.”

“For everything there is a season. After prayerful consideration and discussion with family, today I’m announcing that my time serving Western North Carolina in Congress will come to a close at the end of this term,” Meadows stated. “This was a decision I struggled with greatly.”

“My work with President Trump and his administration is only beginning,” Meadows continued. “This President has accomplished incredible results for the country in just 3 years, and I’m fully committed to staying in the fight with him and his team to build on those successes and deliver on his promises for the years to come. I’ve always said Congress is a temporary job, but the fight to return Washington, DC to its rightful owner, We The People, has only just begun.”

Meadow’s announcement came the day before the North Carolina filing deadline, which forced him to make the decision today. As opposed to some of his North Carolina congressional colleagues, Meadows was not deeply impacted by the state’s congressional re-districting measures. Meadow’s 11th District is expected to remain GOP hands, however.

The North Carolina congressman has been one of President Donald Trump’s strongest advocates. He served as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus during the first two years of the Trump administration and played a crucial role in trying to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Meadows established his trailblazing credentials when he tried to out former House Speaker John Boehner. He has stood strong with the president throughout the entire impeachment drama in 2019.

Rumors are circulating that Meadows could be joining the Trump administration in some capacity. Current speculation points to Meadows’s interest in being Trump’s chief of staff.

Meadows dismissed rumors that he would be running for North Carolina’s open Senate seat in 2022, when Republican Senator Richard Burr is expected to retire.

Congressman come and go, but Meadows will be especially missed by America First patriots.

Hopefully, North Carolina’s 11th district is occupied by an America First successor.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
