Published

on

Laura Loomer, investigative journalist and Big League Politics contributor, joined Friday’s episode of Howley Reports to discuss her recent clash with the Democrat running for governor of Nevada, where we stand with the Keith Ellison abuse case in Minnesota, just who is Linda Sarsour?, and why Ron DeSantis needs to get his head in the game. Plus much more.

Keith Ellison’s domestic abuse scandal is partially re-shaping the 2018 midterm elections, especially up north.

The Congressional Leadership Fund — the PAC closely associated with House Speaker Paul Ryan — is coming into the Minnesota First District to criticize pro-Trump Republican candidate Jim Hagedorn’s liberal Democrat opponent.

Hagedorn, the pro-Trump congressman’s son, is running against Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) candidate Dan Feehan, who served in the Obama administration’s Department of Defense. Hagedorn enjoyed a boost after President Trump invited him up to the stage to speak at Trump’s rally last week in Rochester, Minnesota.

Last election, Hagedorn fell 3,000 votes short of defeating the seat’s current occupant Tim Walz, who is giving up the seat to run for governor this year. If Hagedorn manages to defeat the Obama official Feehan, then Republicans can gain a House seat in the Minnesota First.

Hagedorn won August’s primary over NRA-endorsed pick Carla Nelson, and inter-party bitterness persisted. It seemed like the national Republican Party was going to stay away from the Minnesota First. But the major domestic violence scandal against Minnesota congressman, DNC deputy chairman, and attorney general candidate Keith Ellison changed the game in Minnesota.

The Congressional Leadership Fund is spending money now in two Minnesota districts: Hagedorn’s First District, and also the Eighth District, where Republican St. Louis County Commissioner Pete Stauber is running strong against the Democrat Joe Radinovich. If both Hagedorn and Stauber win, then the Republicans will see a net gain of two Democrat-held Minnesota seats.

The new Congressional Leadership Fund TV commercial depicts Keith Ellison and Dan Feehan alongside Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton as “THE LIBERAL ELITE.”

Donald Trump’s Team Officially Disavows the ‘Patriot Party’, Affirms the GOP Belongs to Trump

Now is not the time to divide the ranks.

Former president Donald Trump’s team has officially disavowed the “Patriot Party,” a fringe outfit that has tried to draw Trump’s supporters out of the Republican Party into a new third-party effort.

Fake news had been circulating that Trump was connected to the efforts of Michael Joseph Gaul of Georgia, who had suggested in a Jan. 22 filing that Trump may be connected to his incarnation of the Patriot Party. Trump’s team has made it clear in a separate FEC filing that this is not the case.

“On January 22, 2021, Patriot Party filed a Form 1 (Statement of Organization) listing [Trump’s presidential organization] as a participant in purported joint fundraising activities under 11 C.F.R. 102.17. [Trump’s presidential organization] did not authorize the filing of this Form 1, has not entered into any joint fundraising agreement to fundraise through Patriot Party, and has no knowledge of Patriot Party’s activities whatsoever,” Trump’s team wrote in the filing. 

To be clear: [Trump’s presidential organization] has no affiliation with Patriot Party, which is not authorized by Mr. Trump or [Trump’s presidential organization],” the filing continued.

“[Trump’s presidential organization] is placing this disavowal notice on the public record out of concern for confusion among the public, which may be misled to believe that Patriot Party’s activities have been authorized by Mr. Trump or [Trump’s presidential organization] — or that contributions to this unauthorized committee are being made to [Trump’s presidential organization] — when that is not true,” they added in the filing.

Previously, Trump had previously flirted with the idea of starting a Patriot Party or a separate third-party organization away from the GOP, which was seized upon by opportunists trying to exploit the former president’s name to make a buck.

Big League Politics has reported on how rank-and-file Republicans overwhelmingly want the party to adopt the agenda and the posturing of Trump:

Recent polling indicates that the overwhelming majority of Republicans side with President Donald Trump over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in their struggle over the future of the GOP.

McConnell has used last week’s violence in the Capitol to agitate against Trump, even flirting with the idea of impeaching the president. Ten Congressional Republicans joined the Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time on Wednesday.

However, McConnell’s feud with Trump comes at the peril of his career prospects. Republicans side with Trump, believing that Trump is right in his complaints about corruption.

An Axios-Ipsos poll shows that a firm majority of Republicans believe Trump was just to oppose election fraud, that he bares no responsibility in what happened at the U.S. Capitol, and they hope he runs again for the presidency in 2024.

Additionally, the results of the poll show a divide that has formed within the GOP. 56 percent of respondents consider themselves “traditional Republicans” while 36 percent of respondents consider themselves “Trump Republicans.” There is likely considerable overlap between the two groups as well, which should scare the likes of McConnell and his special interest masters.

The findings show that the “Trump Republicans” are on board with their president like never before and will be the most formidable anti-establishment constituency in GOP history.

The Republican Party is the party of Donald Trump and the home of his supporters. Any person attempting to run patriots out of the GOP is trying to subvert Trump’s agenda, whether they realize it or not.
