DESPICABLE: Freshman House Republicans Nancy Mace and Peter Meijer Blast President Trump Upon Taking Office

Hopefully their first term is their last term.

Nancy Mace (SC-01) and Peter Meijer (MI-03) are two of the newest members of the House of Representatives, both of them Republicans who got elected on November 3 and showed up for their first day of work two months later.

Despite holding office for little more than a week, Mace and Meijer have already distinguished themselves as vociferous critics of President Donald Trump. The Washington Examiner published a story about the two Monday evening, and a quick Google search of their names yields the following headlines:

No wonder the mainstream media is giving Mace and Meijer so much attention. They’re happily using their new stature as members of Congress to turn their backs—and the backs of other Republicans—against the president. They’re already betraying their constituents.

Peter Meijer occupies the old House seat of Justin Amash, the libertarian-minded “conservative” who supported Trump’s impeachment in 2019, left the GOP, and briefly sought the presidential nomination on the Libertarian Party ticket. Michigan’s 3rd district thought they’d be electing someone significantly better than Amash, but with Meijer’s possible support of a second Trump impeachment, it appears as if they’re going to get business as usual.

Nancy Mace, meanwhile, comes across as the female version of Dan Crenshaw. She eagerly condemned those who breached the Capitol “domestic terrorists.” She’s pushing for the Republican Party to “start over”—code for rejecting Trump and an America First agenda. And she’s embraced by Erick Erickson, the man who tweeted last Wednesday: “Shoot [the pro-Trump protesters at the Capitol]. Waive the rules, impeach. Waive the rules, convict. Waive the rules, deny the ability to run for election again.”

The elections of Mace and Meijer further confirm that the Republican Party needs to be reformed inside and out. They’ve set themselves apart as garden-variety “respectable conservatives,” but this is not what America needs. America needs nationalists and populists and fighters. We’re not going to get that with representatives like Nancy Mace and Peter Meijer.

No Traditional Farewell Ceremony for Donald Trump, Pentagon Confirms

The last time the Pentagon hadn’t held one was 40 years ago.

President Donald Trump will not receive a traditional farewell ceremony from the Pentagon, according to two officials who confirmed the news to Defense One.

Kevin Baron, Defense One’s founding executive editor, broke the story in the form of a commentary, saying that “it’s a shame, but not a surprise” and claiming that Trump “has used the military as a political prop since his first days in office.”

Although not a longstanding tradition per se, the Pentagon has held a farewell tribute for presidents leaving office going back four decades. The last time it hadn’t happened was when Jimmy Carter exited the White House and Ronald Reagan became president in 1981.

Despite not receiving a tribute from the Pentagon, Trump will ostensibly hold his own departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland and then fly to Florida on Air Force One early Wednesday morning. According to an anonymous individual who spoke with ABC News, “officials are considering an elaborate send-off event reminiscent of the receptions he’s received during state visits abroad, complete with a red carpet, color guard, military band and even a 21-gun salute.
