Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., told Newsmax TV on Thursday that Sen. Tim Scott, R-N.C., “said more and more meaningful things in fifteen minutes than President [Joe] Biden did in one hour” of his address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.

“Tim said more and more meaningful things in fifteen minutes than President Biden did in one hour, and Tim’s remarks were there to lift people up, to talk about the great faith, family, freedom, hope, opportunity concepts. Those founding principles, those first principles that we all hold so dear and how that made a difference in his life. He talked about the faith that his mother had exercised. He talked about the role modeling that his family showed to him. He talked about how they instilled in him the hope that days would be better. And indeed, he talked about our nation’s days would be better and how he sought opportunities that were when there was an open door to him he took it. He was encouraged to walk through those open doors, and all of this happens because we live in a free country, as he said, you could go from cotton to congress in one generation because of the freedoms and the opportunities we have in this country.”

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, the governors of two states — Oklahoma and Idaho, respectively — signed ‘heartbeat bills’ into law. These laws protect preborn children from the moment a heartbeat can be detected, which is usually around five to six weeks gestation. Though the preborn child’s brain is the first organ to appear, the child’s heart begins to beat between 16 and 22 days after the moment of fertilization (when a new human life begins).

Former President Donald Trump said Thursday he’s “100%” thinking about running again for the White House, and would consider popular Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a running mate.

Voters “love that ticket. Certainly, Ron would be considered. He’s a great guy,” told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo in a wide-ranging interview.

While he continues to rail about the 2020 election results and insist he was the rightful winner over now-President Joe Biden, he thinks a 2024 campaign will be “very successful.”

“The polls show it and everybody wants me to do it,” Trump said. “One hundred percent, I’m thinking about running and we will I think be very successful. We were very successful.”

He pointed out that he ran for office twice, and in the 2020 election “got 12 million more votes than the first time which very rarely happens for a president. I got the largest number of votes in the history of our country for a sitting president. And I was told if I got 66 million, you couldn’t lose. I got 75 million.”

Former President Donald Trump is planning to resume his signature “Make America Great Again” rallies as soon as May, according to a report Wednesday.

CNN, citing unidentified aides, reported that Trump has “initiated discussions” about the rallies and “the logistics are still being worked out,” but they could return in just weeks.

The outlet quoted what it called a “person close to Trump’s post-White House operation” as saying, “It will definitely be different in terms of the setup, but we got really good at planning these events in 2020, so we will probably use a lot of those same vendors again.”

Against the socially and politically correct movement.

“Today is 5 years since my double mastectomy,” she writes. “I didn’t think it would hit me this hard but it’s really tough to deal with. My scars are so large and I want to crawl out of my skin.”

She is outraged at a system that encouraged her to make life-altering decisions “and lied to her so she would adopt the depraved lifestyle of delusion,” according to a report at Big League Politics.

A judge in Arizona is allowing a recount of the 2020 presidential election ballots from Maricopa County to continue, even as Democrats escalate their campaign to suppress the work, and any results that might be found.

The Washington Examiner reported Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Daniel Martin also ordered that the audit policies and procedures used by Cyber Ninjas, the company hired by Senate Republicans to do the count, be public.

Arizona was one of a six states that Joe Biden won by a slim margin where lawmakers raised objections to the results, presenting evidence of vote fraud. The Senate Republicans recount was launched last week when county officials began delivering equipment that was used in the November election to the state fairgrounds, where the recount is to include all 2.1 million ballots.

WASHINGTON — In the Republicans’ official response to President Joe Biden’s maiden speech to Congress on Wednesday, Sen. Tim Scott, R-South Carolina, accused Democrats of tearing the country apart.

Scott, the only Black senator in the Republican ranks, suggested in his response that Democrats are wielding race as “a political weapon.”

“America is not a racist country,” Scott said. “…race is not a political weapon to settle every issue the way one side wants.”

He also said that while Biden has preached united among America’s two political parties, the president’s policies are “pulling us farther apart.”

“Our president seems like a good man. His speech was full of good words,” Scott said. “But President Biden promised you a specific kind of leadership. He promised to unite a nation. To lower the temperature. To govern for all Americans, no matter how we voted.”
