President Trump has spoken out about his role, or lack thereof, in the January 6 protest in which numerous Democrats were arrested alongside a lot of nonvoters and some Republicans after what appear to be outside agitators convinced the crowd to enter the Capitol. It was clear that law enforcement was woefully unprepared, and multiple people lost their lives — including an unarmed peaceful protester named Ashli Babbitt. Democrats say that Trump is at fault, but the President revealed in a Fox News appearance what really happened.

While the media claimed Trump was watching the protest on TV and celebrated it, he says that is galaxies away from the truth. Trump told host Steve Hilton:

“Well, that’s incorrect reporting. First of all I wasn’t watching TV. I turned it on later on when I heard about it and did a lot of moves. You know, we said to the Department of Defense, the top person, days before we had the rally, cuz that rally was massive…(Trump comments on large rally crowd)…and I said that I think you should have ten thousand, I think I gave the number, I definitely gave the number of ten thousand National Guardsmen, I think you have ten thousand of the National Guard ready. They took that number, from what I understand they gave it to the people at the Capitol which is controlled by Pelosi and I heard they rejected it because they didn’t think it looked good. So, you know, that was a big mistake.”

 “I hate to see it, I think it’s terrible, I hate to see it” Trump says of the Capitol incident, but reminds us that Democrats have a “double standard” in their reaction to this versus Antifa and BLM tearing up cities every time they get angry. Watch the interview below:

A straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Sunday revealed that if President Trump chooses to run in 2024, he will likely be the nominee.

Support for the President was impressive at CPAC, with 97 percent of those present saying they approve of President Trump. A whopping 87% say they approve of the job he did as President, and 68% say Trump should run for President again. According to Fox News, if the 2024 GOP primary was held today, President Trump would be chosen to challenge Biden for the Oval Office:

Former President Donald Trump, in results announced Sunday, won the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll with 55% of attendees saying they’d vote for him if the 2024 GOP primary were today.

Trump got 55% of the vote in the poll in which he was included, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in second place at 21%. 

A poll that didn’t include President Trump placed DeSantis in the lead with 43% of the vote, but it is clear that people are overwhelmingly behind the President. This poll has South Dakota Governor Kristy Noem in second with 11% and Donald Trump Jr. in third with 8%.

Republicans who oppose Trump did very poorly. Mitt Romney got .3% of the votes, while Maryland Governor Larry Hogan earned .1%.

“Look, you’re not going to get the Republican nomination being a never-Trumper,’ says American Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp. “You’re not going to get the Republican nomination if you’re not a strong conservative. So all of that kind of courting, it’s appropriate that it starts at CPAC.”

Though some in the Republican Party oppose President Trump, CPAC has made it clear that, as Schlapp says, we won’t get anywhere if we oppose Donald J. Trump.

President Trump announced some major plans for 2022. No, he’s not running for Senate. But he does plan to make the Senate and the House great again. In a Thursday meeting at the Mar-A-Lago, President Trump held a meeting with some of his closest allies and advisors — a meeting where he laid out his plans for the midterm elections.

The meeting included many recognizable names: former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, former deputy campaign manager Justin Clark, former campaign manager Brad Parscale, former White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino, and attorney Alex Cannon. Though it might seem like the former President is planning a run for Congress based on that list of names, Trump has other plans — a new super PAC intended to elect only the best. Politico reports:

Lewandowski, himself a former campaign manager for Trump in 2016, did not respond to requests for comment. In a statement, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said the former president will announce more details about his political operation “in the coming weeks.

“MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.”

President Trump may not be in office anymore and it is unclear if he plans to run again in 2024, but it’s clear that he plans to remain a major player in the Republican Party. And given his popularity among conservatives, the President can play a major role in mobilizing patriots for the important midterm elections at a time when taking back Congress is imperative.

President Trump also says he hopes to use the opportunity to “engage” in the 2022 election and “exact revenge” on Republicans like Mitch McConnell, who are not loyal to him, and men like Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, for not “overturning the election.”

It’s unclear what Trump plans specifically, but he is expected to share more at his appearance at CPAC on Sunday.

According to ‘View’ host Joy Behar, any attempt to investigate New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for sexually harassing a woman to the point that she feared him must be met with yet another investigation into President Trump. Sure, the President has successfully faced down two impeachment attempts — one while he was a private citizen — and been found innocent. He’s weathered numerous investigations, some of which are ongoing. To date, Democrats have found nothing to use against him. But Behar says that none of that matters — a legitimate investigation into Cuomo makes yet another tired Donald Trump witch hunt necessary.

Former Cuomo staffer Lindsey Boylan revealed on Medium that she had gone through years of torture at Cuomo’s hands, with the Governor making numerous unwanted advances that included asking her to play strip poker and forcing a kiss on her. According to Boylan, this behavior was well-known and even “normalized” by her fellow female staffers. But just like when Tara Reade bravely told of her experiences with Joe Biden, the Left is in full attack mode.

On Thursday’s edition of The View, Behar came out swinging — but not at Cuomo. “I think they’re pretty bad. His office has denied the allegations, but they’re pretty specific,” Behar said. “They have been corroborated by at least one other aide, so it definitely merits investigation. I’m sure the Democrats will be quick to remove him if it all comes out in the wash because that’s what the Democrats do. Case in point, Al Franken. Bye-bye.”

She could have stopped there and she might have made a well-reasoned point. Franken, for example, was gone in three seconds after allegations against him surfaced. However, Tara Reade’s credible allegations against Joe Biden were ignored by Behar despite her championing the cause of a woman who threw fake and disproven allegations at Brett Kavanaugh. Naturally, as she likes to pick and choose which women to support Behar demanded a price for an investigation into the credible allegations made by the former Cuomo staffer — investigations into Donald Trump, Kavanaugh, and Jim Jordan.

While it’s true that all three of these men were accused of various improprieties, all three have been exonerated. But that’s not good enough for Behar.

“So I would like to also add that these allegations should be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated just like the following; Jim Jordan, for covering up and failing to report sexual abuse of minors by former members of the Ohio State University wrestling team, Brett Kavanaugh, the FBI did a hurried three-day investigation into credible claims from multiple women,” she said, adding:

“Remember that? It was, like, ‘Oh, we’re done. We’re done. And of course, Donald Trump himself, who is accused of upwards of 25 women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. If you are going to investigate Cuomo, you better investigate these other people. That’s all I’m saying.”

President Trump has been investigated enough. Kavanaugh? Definitely enough? Jordan? He was also investigated. Her problem isn’t with a lack of investigations, but that she didn’t like the results of them. The Left wants to punish their enemies. They don’t care about justice or right and wrong. Just exacting vengeance.

Democrats are shaking in their boots. They have painted all conservatives as terrorists. They have run us off social media. They have shut down social media that accepts us. They have twice impeached President Trump on made-up charges. They’re terrified. And so are their allies in the Republican Party — allies like Mitt Romney, who has attacked Trump repeatedly. But now, Romney has made a startling admission.

Recently, President Trump has hinted both at a 2024 run and his own political party. This is a huge deal, as half of Trump voters say they would follow him to another party and abandon the GOP altogether. In other words, despite the attacks both from in and outside the house, President Trump still has massive support in the GOP. And Romney? He says that he wouldn’t vote for him — but admits that President Trump is still in charge.

 “He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party,” the Never-Trumper says. “I don’t know if he’s planning to run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he would win the nomination.”

Many, including President Trump’s son, wonder when Romney will just leave the party he so clearly hates:

President Trump is making a speech at CPAC, where he is expected to make a “show of force” to remind everyone that he’s still in charge. It’s also possible that he may announce a 2024 run, but many close to the President are unsure if he feels like a rematch with Joe Biden and the Democrats’ trickery.

It’s unclear what the future holds, but one thing is certain — the Republican Party needs Donald Trump, not the other way around. He could singlehandedly save the GOP or bring about its destruction by forming a rival political party that would steal away support from Republicans. People like Romney and his Never-Trump allies need to quit playing with fire, because they are close to getting burned.

President Trump is set to make a major announcement at CPAC this year. Though social media companies have worked tirelessly to silence him and the media has painted him as a terrorist leader, Americans still love Donald Trump — and he plans to use CPAC as an opportunity to let people know he isn’t sitting around idle as Joe Biden and the Democrats destroy America.

Business Insider reports that Trump’s appearance at CPAC will be a “show of force” intended to expand and maintain his leadership of the Republican Party.. Trump is expected to touch on a number of topics in his speech, including Joe Biden’s destruction of the former President’s immigration reform measures, the future of the Republican Party, and his own future. President Trump will likely also discuss certain traitors in the party who turned against him.

Trump is due to speak at the event on Sunday — his first public speech since leaving office.

One of his longtime advisors told Axios’ Mike Allen that his speech will be a “show of force,” and intended to show that he still rules over the GOP, even though he is no longer president and has been barred from major social media platforms. The advisor said that his message will be: “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.” 

According to Trump allies, he wants to “project the image that he will be the GOP’s presumptive 2024 nominee because they believe he is popular with the party’s base.”

Many of Trump’s allies doubt he will actually run for President again, but if he were to do that, CPAC would be the ideal place for him to make such an announcement — especially in light of news that President Trump may be starting his own political party. President Trump has also hinted at a rematch with Joe Biden. Whatever happens, CPAC is sure to be exciting.

President Trump isn’t taking his ban from Facebook and Instagram lying down. Following the January 6 protest that got a little out of hand, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other platforms banned President Trump because he was blamed as the instigator of what leftists call a terrorist attack. The President’s accounts were shut down following his attempt to calm the crowd and get them to go home. But if you hear Facebook or other social media sited describe it, President Trump is a menace.

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said after banning the President, who told protesters to “go home” and that “we have to have peace.” President Trump says he has filed an appeal with Facebook’s Review Board:

Former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, who is a co-chair of the oversight board, told UK’s Channel 4 News that they are currently looking into the appeal concerning Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. The board was set up to be an independent group to hear users’ appeals and is comprised of 19 former politicians, journalists, and academics.

“It’s a very high profile case but that is exactly why the Oversight Board was created in the first place,” Thorning-Schmidt said.

In a statement to The Epoch Times, the board confirmed that “a user statement has been received in the case before the Oversight Board concerning President Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.”

“We will have no further comment concerning that statement until the Board has issued its decision,” they added.

The Board has 90 days to review the appeal. Though President Trump used Twitter heavily during his tenure, he says that he has no intention of returning to the bird app.

“It’s become very boring. We don’t want to go back to Twitter,” President Trump told Newsmax’s Greg Kelly Wednesday. “I’ll tell you, it’s not the same. If you look at what’s going on with Twitter, I understand that it’s become very boring and millions of people are leaving.”

“We were being really harassed on Twitter. They were putting up all sorts of flags. They were flagging almost anything you see, everything I was saying was being flagged,” Trump says. “It’s just disgraceful.”

It’s unclear whether President Trump’s appeal will succeed, but it will be good to see him come back, if Facebook decides to do the right thing.
