Trump backs former aide in race to challenge party “traitor”
Former U.S. President Donald Trump has endorsed former aide Aide Max Miller to challenge Anthony Gonzalez for the Republican congressional seat, after Gonzalez voted to impeach Trump.
Max Miller is a wonderful man who has done a great job in the White House and will make a great member of Congress,” Trump said in a statement from the Save America political action committee (PAC). He is a Marine Corps veteran, a son of Ohio, and a true patriot. The current Congressman Anthony Gonzalez should not represent the people of the 16th District (of Ohio) because he does not represent their (constituents’) interests or voices. Max Miller has my complete and total endorsement!” the statement said.
Miller previously worked in the White House, where he served as a senior adviser to Trump. He also served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
Miller tweeted in response to Trump’s endorsement: “When I began my campaign for Congress, I was honored to receive the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump. I will never back down and I will not betray my constituents. Join us and together we will save America.”
Gonzales, who currently represents Ohio’s 16th District, was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump.
CPAC Florida Governor Opens Tribute to Limbaugh, Fights Zuckerberg Politics

On February 26, CPAC, a conservative political action conference sponsored by the American Conservative Union, opened in Orlando, Florida, with Republican dignitaries speaking on a number of topics including focusing on the Culture of elimination. Former President Donald Trump will also give the grand finale speech on the 28th.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, considered one of the potential presidential candidates for 2024, took the stage first to kick off CPAC with a speech that began with a tribute to the late conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh. He began by paying tribute to the late conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh.
“Rush showed the courage of his convictions Time and time again,” he said. “Rush was one of the first to fight against the culture of abolition. Rush showed that it takes strength to fight the left, and that conservatism that lacks a backbone is doomed to fail.”
DeSantis has also been courageous in fighting speech censorship by the tech giant, saying he is ready to take on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, having signed legislation to fight political censorship and make personal data protection law. He vowed, “In Florida, we’re not going to let the oligarchs of Silicon Valley set the terms of our national debate.”
Rep. Gates Speech: America Is Starting to Look More Like China
In a speech that day, Rep. Matt Gaetz (D-CA) warned Americans that big tech and big government’s censorship and elimination of important conservative voices has become an imminent threat, and that increasingly powerful institutions will “silence even the weakest dissent.”
Gates said, “When big technology and big government work together, America starts to look more like China [the Chinese Communist Party].” “If we win the debate, but lose the network, we will be the last great generation in America.”
He criticized the left and even some Republicans for supporting the use of American blood and treasure to foster democracy in the Middle East, but failing to protect America’s constitutional rights. “The terms of service on Twitter will always be more important than the values that underpin our Constitution.”
Gates noted that Joe Biden‘s administration included a revolving door to some of the biggest techies in order to create a “unified system. He cited the Chinese Communist Party as an example of the consequences of the dangerous forces of business and government uniting to form “captive capitalism. “When they can ctl-alt-delete anyone for any reason, there are no checks and balances.”
Cruz CPAC speech: Trump will continue to play an important role
On Friday the 26th, former presidential contender and Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He noted that the Republican Party will be the party of working-class Americans and vowed that former President Trump will continue to play an important role in the Republican Party.
In his speech, Cruz said Democrats want Trump to walk away, “Let me tell you this right now: Donald J. Trump is not going anywhere.”
“Joe Biden and his administration’s radicals have crossed the line, and they’ve gone too far. Their policies don’t work. They are a disaster. They are destroying jobs. They are taking away our freedoms.”
Cruz emphasized, “There is a natural pendulum that will swing and this country will come back to its senses, and mark my words, 2022 will be the year of the election and 2024 will be a fantastic year.”
Trump Jr.: Trump “still the future of the Republican Party” and the first 30 days of the Biden Administration were a disaster
Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr. told Fox News on Thursday 25 that Trump is still the future of the Republican Party, “If you see the status quo and are smart, then you realize that Donald Trump is still the future of the Republican Party.” He also said that the first 30 days of the Biden administration were a disaster.
He said Republicans supporting the 45th president are “following the America First agenda” to gain the support of “hard-working men and women in America,” “those who have been displaced by illegals, those who have been drawn away by the Democrats, those who have been displaced by the Democrats. Voters who have been drawn away from the Democratic Party, people who have been blatantly ignored for decades, and Donald Trump has their support.”
He denounced the party’s “decent losing” approach to politics and said it should continue to fight back.
Trump Jr. denounced the Republican establishment’s lack of resistance to recent political pressure from the left and “the lack of natural pushback. Republicans (the establishment) are not willing to do that. They’ve proven that for decades. I think they’d just rather lose. That’s not really the plan I would follow, but that’s what they’re doing. Donald Trump has proven that you don’t have to do that. You can actually fight back.”
He said the point of his conversation had nothing to do with political manners, but rather that conservatives do not have a “level playing field” right now.
Trump Jr. added, “The first 30 days (after Biden took office) were a disaster, and everything that the (mainstream) media lied about not happening, happened.”
Trump Jr. cited problems with the Biden administration’s administration since taking office, including: failing to open the country in the midst of an Epidemic but opening the border to illegal immigrants, resulting in the detention of hundreds of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children; and failing to go ahead and cut off Russia’s oil pipeline, instead cutting off the U.S.’s own pipeline.
Trump Jr. noted that 17 percent of voters who voted for Biden in a recent poll regretted it because of mainstream media censorship and suppression of conservatives, leaving those voters uninformed about the Biden Family scandal.
Pompeo questions Biden: I hope he didn’t throw a bomb into the desert
After Biden ordered airstrikes against Iranian-backed militia strongholds in eastern Syria on Thursday, Feb. 25, Pompeo expressed hope that the Biden administration’s airstrike was an effective and substantive attack that did not drop bombs in the desert.
In Thursday’s attack, the Biden administration targeted the Shiite militias Kait’ib Hezbollah and Kait’ib Sayyid al Shuhada on the Iraqi border. They are both suspected of receiving funding and military support from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
The airstrikes are known to have targeted facilities near the Syrian-Iraqi border used by Iranian-backed militias. The attack came more than a week after a rocket attack on a U.S. military base in northern Iraq. One U.S. citizen contractor was killed and one U.S. service member and other allied personnel were wounded in that attack.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told “Ingraham Angle” that U.S. airstrikes in eastern Syria Thursday night should target “things that threaten the United States. “You have to protect your troops, you have to build deterrence,” he told host Laura Ingraham. “We’ve done that twice and it’s worked well.
I don’t know what they hit, or what targets they attacked,” Pompeo added. I hope he didn’t throw a bomb into the desert. I hope it’s really attacking things that are threatening the United States. If it’s not, it’s not working.”
On Monday (Feb. 22), a rocket attack in Baghdad’s Green Zone appeared to target the U.S. Embassy, but caused no casualties.
Pompeo added, “You don’t need to get into trouble before you do an airstrike.” “I’m confident we can do …… safe in and safe out. We have to make sure we stop the Iranians everywhere. Weakness against the Iranians will only be rewarded with more terror from them. “
“The War Machine Is Back,” Biden, Who Ordered Air Strikes, Punched Himself in the Face
On Feb. 25, the U.S. Department of Defense confirmed that U.S. forces airstriked Iranian-backed militia forces in Syria that day in retaliation for recent attacks on U.S. facilities in Iraq. A conservative U.S. Writer then used Biden’s “America is back” slogan sarcastically, saying, “The war machine is back.
The Trump Administration carried out attacks on Syrian territory in 2017 and 2018. The 2018 attack was a joint attack with France and the United Kingdom. And both attacks were in direct retaliation for chemical attacks against their own people as a result of the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
In January 2020, the Trump administration also carried out a drone strike at Baghdad International Airport that killed senior Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) elite Quds Force.
In October 2019, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden called then-President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from northern Syria “unstable and impulsive.”
This afternoon, I will discuss Trump’s recent actions in Syria and how his out-of-control, impulsive decisions are endangering our troops and making us all less safe,” he said at the time. Watch live at 5 p.m. ET.”
In 2017, Jen Psaki, now White House press secretary, questioned what the Trump administration’s “legal authority to launch an attack” on Syria was after it ordered the military action.
Durham resigned as Connecticut prosecutor before Biden took office as attorney general, remaining as special counsel.

Connecticut U.S. Attorney John H. Durham, the special prosecutor investigating the origins of Russiagate, announced his departure Friday (Feb. 26), effective Feb. 28. He did not explain why.
Durham was appointed last October by former Attorney General Barr as special prosecutor in charge of the Russia counter-investigation.
Barr then appointed Durham in 2019 to conduct a counter-investigation into the case, looking into the source of the Russia investigation, which was launched against former President Trump’s campaign team and subsequently proved to be non-existent.
After Durham turned the case into a criminal investigation, Barr authorized Durham as a special prosecutor with the authority to investigate whether in 2016 – against the Trump campaign, or in connection with the campaign and the Trump administration – any federal officer, employee or person or entity of the Trump campaign and the Trump administration – whether the investigation violated the law.
The investigation is not limited to the Crossfire Hurricane (the FBI’s code name for the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign), but also includes the Russia investigation conducted by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Durham has the authority to prosecute those involved for federal crimes if he “deems it necessary and appropriate.
Media outlets reported that after Biden took office, the Justice Department on Feb. 9 asked 56 federal prosecutors appointed under Trump to resign by Feb. 28, but a handful of prosecutors handling politically sensitive Trump-era investigations are expected to remain on board.
In addition to Durham, Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who investigated Biden’s son, Hunter, is among those retained. Justice Department officials told Reuters on Feb. 9 that Durham will continue his work as a special prosecutor but will resign from his position as a federal prosecutor in Connecticut.
