Senator Lamar Alexander to Retire in 2020

Published

on

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.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Brutalizes Ilhan Omar in Devastating Tweets Over Her Illicit Brother Marriage

Greene is the fighter conservatives have been looking for.

Published

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has not even been officially sworn into Congress yet, but she is already taking the fight to “The Squad” in ways that other Republicans would never dream.

The spat began after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took potshots at Sen. Kelly Loeffler (D-GA), the patriotic who is fighting to keep her post as U.S. Senator during a run-off election in a state marred with unprecedented electoral irregularities.

Loeffler refused to take Omar’s abuse laying down:

Which prompted a weak reply from Omar:

This is when Greene showed up with the heavy artillery to back up Loeffler and put Omar in her place:

Omar responded by referring to Greene as “looney” for her supposed association with the QAnon movement, which has been targeted by Big Tech platforms.

Greene clapped back by putting Omar in her place, letting her know that her backward customs are not normal in the United States:

Big League Politics has reported on the political establishment’s outrage after Greene has her sights on Omar and the “Squad” that wants to destroy the American Republic and replace it with totalitarian socialism:

Facebook has censored a political advertisement from Congressional contender Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia after anti-American socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was triggered by its contents.

Omar made a post about Greene’s ad, which featured a “scary looking” AR-15 rifle. The supposedly empowered feminist woman could not handle seeing the gun and demanded that her precious little feelings be protected by tech overlords as a result of her weakness…

It’s worth noting that Facebook’s representative who tweeted that the post had been censored is a Democrat operative who formerly worked for the both Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Democrats’ PAC…

The supposedly offensive campaign ad, which is said to be threatening by gaslighting leftists because Greene is holding an AR-15, can be seen here…

Another one of her campaign ads were censored by Facebook before she won her primary election. She said she was locked and loaded and ready for ANTIFA terrorists if they came to Northwest Georgia.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

Greene is the prototypical candidate of the Trump-led GOP. This is why the political establishments of both major parties are uniting in an attempt to stop her from being a Congresswoman.

The American republic will not be surrendered on Greene’s watch.
