A United States Senator from Tennessee will retire at the end of his term in 2020, according to a statement released Monday morning.
“I will not be a candidate for re-election to the United States Senate in 2020. The people of Tennessee have been very generous, electing me to serve more combined years as Governor and Senator than anyone else from our state,” Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said in press release.
The 78-year-old Alexander is the chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, and has served in the Senate since 2003. He was Governor of Tennessee from 1979-1987.
“I am deeply grateful, but now it is time for someone else to have that privilege,” the release said. “I have gotten up every day thinking that I could help make our state and country a little better, and gone to bed most nights thinking that I have. I will continue to serve with that same spirit during the remaining two years of my term.”
Alexander, who spent more than 50 years in politics, quit Republican party leadership a few years ago in order to “get results,” which is D.C. code language for compromising with Democrats at the expense of conservatism.
In an interview with John Harwood in 2017, he bemoaned the lack of cooperation between parties.
“You know, if all I want to do is make a speech, or shout, I’d go to a street corner or buy a radio station. I want to get a result. And that’s harder to do today, because the extremes are polarizing,” he said.
The “results” referred to by Alexander almost always meant sacrificing conservative values. In fact, during the 50 years that Alexander was in office, conservatives failed to truly conserve anything. They lost on every social issue. They lost on small government, building the bloated bureaucracy that plagues us today. They lost on government spending, leading us to a $21 trillion national debt.
Most importantly, they lost touch with the ordinary, blue collar American. Make no mistake – Alexander is part of the generation that ruined government for and by the people.

RINO Maria Salazar Challenges Former Trump Advisor Steven Miller on America First Immigration Policy
This freshman is a dangerous RINO.
Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) has barely been in the federal swamp for a month, and she is already working to undermine former president Donald Trump’s “America First” immigration agenda.
Salazar, who was a journalist with the fake news media before running for Congress, took aim at former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who was credited as the force behind President Trump’s strongest immigration policies. She slammed Miller on a call with her House colleagues to ingratiate herself with the globalists and secure those fat Chamber of Koch checks.
Politico broke the news about the heated exchange between Salazar and Miller, which apparently continued in private as well:
Sources say Salazar pushed for immigration policies that would broaden GOP tent (they are a big tent party) while challenging Miller on how Rs can attract Hispanic and Latino voters given the ultra-conservative policies he is advocating.

Salazar is repeating her corporate-sponsored talking points, but President Trump proved her conventional wisdom wrong in 2020. Trump brought in Hispanics to the Republican Party unlike any political figure before him by standing for the rule of law against marauding Black Lives Matter terrorists and other left-wing thugs at war with civilization.
Big League Politics has reported on Hispanics supporting Trump because they understand the crime and degeneracy that illegal immigration brings to America:
The media constantly fear-mongered about president Donald Trump’s immigration policies ever since he declared his run for office and continued to do so well into his presidency.
The conventional wisdom was that these measures would repel Hispanics across the nation and turn them into a monolithic vote for the Democrat Party.
That did not turn out to be the case in 2020. Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner wrote that Trump’s immigration hawk policies “won broad bipartisan and Hispanic support in the election and even turned several border towns red for the first time in years.”
Per two reviews, a majority of Hispanics and Democrats were in favor of the Trump administration’s efforts to limit immigration during the Wuhan virus pandemic. Similarly, voters in southern border counties reacted negatively to the radical Left’s attacks levied against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform conducted a voter exit survey, where it found that 78 percent of those surveyed believe immigration was an “important” issue for them and played a huge role in who they ended up pulling the lever for. 80 percent supported Trump’s border closure to prevent the Wuhan virus from spreading.
Similarly, Zogby Analytics released a survey showing that 60 percent of Hispanics and 54 percent of Democrats support Trump’s immigration reductions to protect American jobs. Zogby also found similar views among those surveyed about the cuts being good to “maintain our nation’s population.”
FAIR President Dan Stein believes that the election results serve as a warning to Joe Biden and his desire to open up the borders and pass an amnesty bill for the millions of illegal aliens residing in the U.S.
“The election results clearly do not indicate that President-elect Biden has a mandate to institute radical immigration policies being promoted by his party’s far-left wing that include erasing borders and flooding the country with millions of new legal and illegal immigrants,” Stein declared. The FAIR president cited a 76 percent supermajority of those surveyed who are in favor of immigration restriction.
By standing against immigration patriotism and the MAGA agenda, Salazar has exposed herself as a RINO. She will be promoted by the GOP establishment along other frauds like Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as they attempt to nullify President Trump’s legacy.
