Friends, I’m in. We can’t take four more years of Donald Trump. And that’s why I’m running for President.
Let’s show the world we’re ready to be brave.

While desperate Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol and Jennifer Rubin want to re-invent Walsh as if he is some kind of voice of reason, he has a history of making incendiary comments on Twitter that put him in the extreme fringe of the political spectrum.
Another Twitter comment has been unearthed of Walsh talking about the fake news. Instead of just calling out their lies like President Trump frequently does, he wished an Islamic terror attack on the smear merchants of MSNBC and CNN.
Let’s hope that when the Islamists next strike they first behead the appeasing cowards at CNN, MSNBC, etal who refused to show the cartoons.

The fake news is willing to give Walsh a pass though for his violent rhetoric if it means his candidacy can possibly hurt Trump’s chances to retain the presidency in 2020.
People keep citing @WalshFreedom things he said in past. He has said a lot of his words – not policy stuff, but non-policy stuff – was inappropriate and apologized. He is now putting himself out there, and will face ugliness from Cult45. I admire him for taking on this nightmare. https://t.co/Hc4V2tfDJO

I’ll probably eat a bunch of shit for this, but I think Joe Walsh may just do a bit better than folks are predicting on ole https://t.co/80h3YdCGog right now. Of course, people expect him to get 0.001 percent of the primary vote, so the expectations are low.

These 2 things can be true simultaneously
1) Trump is very likely to win a 2020 Republican primary
2) Having a serious challenger is a serious sign of weakness, and e.g. Joe Walsh could inflict some meaningful damage if the media draws out their coverage of “GOP division!”, etc.

First time donating to a GOP POTUS candidate.
Don’t get nervous!
I support defeating Trump. The battle begins in the GOP primary. Consider supporting. https://t.co/1wRnBXe9mE

While the media promotes Walsh as if he is a legitimate contender to challenge Trump, it is not likely that he will do any better than other GOP has-beens with presidential ambitions like former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld or former South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford.
The Never Trumpers do not have any formidable options to choose from within the conservative movement to sabotage the election on behalf of the Democrats in 2020.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
