UPDATE: McDaniel says this is her last term as chair. She will not run again. More here.
Ronna McDaniel has won an unprecedented 4th, 2-year term, as Chairman of the Republican National Committee. She won 111 of the 167 votes cast at their winter meeting well more than the majority needed to win.
Voting breakdown: Zeldin 1, Lindell 4, Dhillion 51, and McDaniel 111. Many true conservative leaders in the Party, such as Ron DeSantis, supported Dhillion. The establishment Republicans live to fight another day, destroying the party even more.
It was a secret ballot at today’s RNC meeting, which is so wrong. We have a right to know how our representatives voted! We elect them and should know if they are representing us. Fortunately, we in Virginia know how National Committeewoman Patti Lyman voted, she did not support Ronna McDaniel, nor did our National Committeeman, Morton Blackwell. We do not yet know how Rich Anderson voted. If anyone knows, speak up!
How low can Republicans go before they know we need a change of leadership? Ronna McDaniel has done next to nothing as RNC Chair but continues to be re-elected.
Steve Bannon tells all real Republicans to stop sending money to RNC because they elected Ronna McDaniel.
Conservative strategist Steve Bannon seeks to undermine Republican National Committee’s fundraising because Ronna McDaniel won another term as party chair.
On his War Room podcast on Monday, Bannon cautioned his audience about supporting the RNC.
“There’s a lot to talk about the RNC,” the podcaster said. “I understand you guys are still worked up. Whatever you do, don’t send them any money. Just take a deep breath. There’s going to be a program and a plan for all of it. Just take a deep breath.”
Trump; says out loud what we all knew: He trusts Putin over American “slime”.
Former President Donald Trump in 2018 had an infamous press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital of Helsinki in which he signaled that believed Putin’s denials about having interfered in the 2016 election despite assessments to the contrary from American intelligence agencies.
Four-and-a-half years later, Trump is now touting his trust of Putin over American intelligence agencies as a source of pride.
In a post on his Truth Social account, the former president attacked former officials at the FBI and CIA whom he accused of trying to undermine his presidency by investigating his campaign’s multiple contacts with Russian agents during the 2016 presidential race.
“Remember in Helsinki when a 3rd rate reporter asked me, essentially, who I trusted more, President Putin of Russia, or our ‘Intelligence’ lowlifes,” he wrote. “My instinct at the time was that we had really bad people in the form of James Comey, McCabe (whose wife was being helped out by Crooked Hillary while Crooked was under investigation!), Brennan, Peter Strzok (whose wife is at the SEC) & his lover, Lisa Page. Now add McGonigal & other slime to the list. Who would you choose, Putin or these Misfits?”
People should take into account that the USA interfered and still does, in not only Russian elections but other countries also. An eye for an eye. Unlimited deficit spending fuels nearly all of the US problems. 😂 Biden has been touting his 2.5% GDP recently. Well, that is easy to do with out of control government spending, run away inflation, unbelievable natural gas prices, overpriced gasoline. spending billions on the Biden Ukraine war. You see, price increases fuel what looks like growth on paper, but really, it isn’t. The middle class and poor are footing the bill for the Ukraine war via increases in their electric bill and at the fuel pump, and diesel prices for transportation at the grocery store. All the while, corporate America is greed is profiting greatly off the Biden Ukraine war. Remember, the Biden family took millions out of Ukraine when Joe was VP. What did Biden do for these millions?
Biden is a cockholster for Zelenskyy.
So, now there you have it.
So you are saying that if other countries do it , so should we.
In every other failed coup attempt I have ever heard of, the coup plotters suffered one of three fates:
1. EXECUTION. Often on the spot.
2. IMPRISONMENT. For a long time.
3. EXILE to a foreign country never to return home.
Thus, in your estimation, the Jan 6 coup plotters should be treated the same.
Good. I’m in favor of all three though I prefer #1, immediately, starting with the old fat man living in a motel near a golf course in Florida.
TDS infection runs deep. It causes the infected to spew hatred for Trump in a blog about the RNC Chair election.
It it great to come here to TBE and read what Republicans and Conservatives write.
It is even better to see what they don’t write about.
So what is the Republican Party going to do about the ATF creating a rule that makes millions of Americans felons.
Then exactly who is being held accountable by Republicans for their poor performance last November? At war once again, inflation out of control, a POS who tried to overthrow the Constitution running for president again, open borders, spending out of control, corrupt POS in the White House. ISN’T Joe Biden JUST ia COCKHOLSTER FOR THE UNKRAINE COMEDIAN/ACTOR, NOW PRESIDENT, Zelenskyy?
And yet, people gave the US Senate to Democrats, and, we almost got another 2 year dose of wac job Catholic Pelosi as Speaker. The people rubber stamped the Corrupt POS Biden over Republicans. Who is taking responsibility?
1) And, why is the media not showing the police body cam video from the time they turned they lights on to stop Tyre Nichols? What is the previous history of Tyre Nichols? What did this guy do to set off 5 brothers?
2) The Paul Pelosi attacker, Canadian David Depape, was an illegal immigrant. Was David Depape in the US illegally because of Pelosi’s, Bidens’s, and the Democrats, AND REPUBLICANS, refusing to act stop illegal immigration?
3) So, isn’t Nancy Pelosi responsible for her own husbands being attacked by an illegal immigrant? Why not?
Say it ain’t so?
Her election means people leaving. No one wants to stay under a party that is as corrupt as they claim the D’s are.
McDaniel says she won’t run for a fifth term. Very good news. Party leadership is wanting and we need some fighters.
Um, she said she wouldn’t run for a 4th term. Lol.
Awful. Just plain awful.
Rigged, Lindell should ask for a recount.
Wait a minute, the caption says that she is Trump’s choice for Chairman. The narrative states that “true conservatives” (that deserves a stand alone LOL but I digress) lost and the establishment lives on. So now Trump is establishment? You all ebb and flow like the damn tide trying to pigeon hole groups and individuals.
Time for the party conservatives to split from the RINOs?
Good for Patti and Morton. It’s disgusting how a majority of the electors voted. They obviously view the nationwide majority of GOP voters with contempt.
Voting in the shadows is cowardice. The RPV does the same when it’s an important vote.
