Reports: Trump Has Been Talked Out Of Creating A ‘Patriot Party’

Trump no longer believes he’s under serious threat of impeachment

Reports suggest that President Trump has abandoned the idea of creating a new political party, and that he will instead focus for the next two years on helping Republicans win back the House and Senate.

The notion of Trump abandoning the GOP and creating a ‘Patriot Party’ was floated last week with a report in the Wall Street Journal noting that aides had suggested Trump was considering the idea.

The idea was provided more credence with Trump’s comments during his farewell speech, as he announced that “the movement we started is just beginning,” and that he would be “back in some form”.

However, senior Trump adviser Jason Miller told reporters that “The President has made clear his goal is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022.”

“There’s nothing that’s actively being planned regarding an effort outside of that, but it’s completely up to Republican Senators if this is something that becomes more serious,” Miller added.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has also noted that several sources have confirmed Trump has been ‘talked out’ of the idea, because he no longer believes he’s under serious threat of impeachment:

While many expressed excitement at the idea of a ‘Patriot Party’, others noted that it would dilute the Democrats’ opposition and that leftists are actually in favour of the idea because they believe it will strengthen their hold on Congress.

Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul has described the impeachment effort against Trump as a ‘farce’, saying that it should be ‘dismissed’ before weeks of time and resources are wasted on it.

In an op-ed Paul wrote “The Constitution says two things about impeachment — it is a tool to remove the office holder, and it must be presided over by the chief justice of the Supreme Court.”

“If Justice Roberts is not presiding over this, then it is not impeachment. This charade will be nothing more than bitter partisanship and political theater,” Paul urged.

The Senator also noted that the entire case hinges on proving that Trump incited violence by calling for supporters to ‘fight’ for their country.

“If we are to blame politicians for the most violent acts of their craziest supporters, then many of my colleagues would face some pretty harsh charges themselves. I’ve been shot at, assaulted and harassed by supporters of the left, including some who directly said the words of politicians moved them to this violence,” Paul declared.

“I was there at the ball field when a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter almost killed Steve Scalise and seriously wounded several others,” Paul continued, adding “At the time, Democrats were arguing that the GOP plan for health care was “you get sick, then they let you die.” Is it any wonder an insane left-wing gunman took that rhetoric to heart and concluded: “If the GOP is going to let me die then maybe I’ll just kill them first”?”

Paul continued, “I am more than willing to work with Democrats to find common ground on protecting civil liberties or ending some of our many foreign military interventions, but no unity or common ground will be found while Democrats continue to fight the last election. This so-called impeachment is a farce and should be dismissed before it is even allowed to begin.”

Tennis Star Warns Ban on Russian Players Sets Bad Precedent

Ideological purity tests for all public figures?

Published

Tennis star Daniil Medvedev says Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from this year’s tournament sets the precedent that sporting authorities can eliminate competitors for their political views.

The Grand Slam previously made the decision on the grounds that allowing players from those countries to compete would be a victory for “the propaganda machine of the Russian regime.”

However, both the men’s ATP and women’s WTA tours have slammed the move as discriminatory and threatened to strip Wimbledon of ranking points in retaliation for the ban.

Russians and Belarusians are still allowed to compete in other tournaments under a neutral representation.

Current world number 2 Medvedev, who has already called for peace in Ukraine, says the ban is “unfair” and is dangerous because it “sets a precedent and puts other sports competitions in an uncomfortable position.”

In other words, even after the war in Ukraine is over, sports professionals could face career ruination because they oppose or even just refuse to comment on whatever the latest political ‘current thing’ may be.

One can easily imagine a future where prominent public figures are punished for failing to endorse the ‘right’ political candidate or express support for whatever contemporary hot button issue is on the agenda.

Novak Djokavic was already punished by Australian authorities earlier this year for refusing to take a COVID-19 vaccine.

Medvedev also asserted that it was his right to appear at Wimbledon under current immigration laws.

“Currently in the United Kingdom, Russian self-employed workers have the right to work. So if I have the opportunity to play Wimbledon, I’d be delighted,” he said.

As we previously highlighted, the French Open tennis tournament has also warned Russian players not to make political statements in support of President Vladimir Putin if they wish to take part in the grand slam.

Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina also previously demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.

EU Exhumes 18 Year Old Embezzlement Charges to Derail Le Pen Presidential Bid

Presumably as part of a deliberate effort to derail her presidential chances, the European Union has exhumed 18-year-old embezzlement charges against Marine Le Pen.

“The EU’s anti-fraud body has accused French far-right leader Marine Le Pen and associates of embezzling around 600,000 euros during their time as MEPs,” reports AFP.

The National Rally leader is personally accused of embezzling “around 137,000 euros ($150,000) worth of public money from the Strasbourg parliament when she was an MEP between 2004 and 2017.”

Le Pen’s lawyer Rodolphe Bosselut dismissed the charges, adding that the “timing” of them was suspicious.

Noting that the report relates to “old facts more than ten years old,” Bosselut highlighted how Le Pen “has not been summoned by any French judicial authority” to answer the charges.

“I’m surprised by the timing of such a strong disclosure and the instrumentalisation,” said Bosselut.

The EU has chosen to resurrect the old claims just days before the final round of the French presidential election, in which Le Pen will face off against incumbent Emmanuel Macron.

Although still a long shot, recent polls had shown Le Pen closing the gap on Macron, causing consternation amongst globalist technocrats.

Given the context, the EU dragging up old charges is clearly an act of election interference intended to tarnish Le Pen before this weekend’s vote.

As we previously highlighted, after Hungary’s Viktor Orban won re-election in a landslide, the EU responded by slapping sanctions on the country as a form of punishment for the electorate exercising their democratic will.
