Nearly three months after Donald Trump’s departure from the White House, his plans for a politically active post-presidential role are coming into public focus

After a comparatively quiet first five weeks in Palm Beach, Fla., following a final five in Washington plagued by all sorts of chaos, Trump stirred up excitement in late February at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where he addressed an enthusiastic crowd for 90 minutes about moving forward with the America First agenda. That plan is now moving into its operational stages, with the launch of a network of political funding vehicles and public messaging platforms.

Most prominently, there is the former president’s leadership PAC — the Save America PAC — which has a war chest totaling more than $85 million heading into the second quarter of this year. That sum positions Trump to make a hefty impact on the upcoming 2022 midterm elections, during which Republicans will attempt to take back control of the House and Senate.

Trump has made it his mission not only to assist Republicans in their effort to reclaim power in Washington, but to select candidates across the country to primary those he views as out-of-sync with the America First platform.

The former president is already deploying resources to help unseat GOP incumbents like Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, whose primary opponent Kelly Tshibaka has hired several former top Trump campaign advisers. Primary candidates challenging GOP incumbents who voted to impeach Trump — including Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington — are vying for the support of Team Trump.

Top Trump communications adviser Jason Miller recently told “Just the News AM” that the former president is seeking out candidates who are first and foremost “America First conservatives.”

“That means someone who supports conservative grassroots when it comes to the more populist positions on trade agreements, trying to get out of some of these endless wars, and trying to make sure that we’re not throwing big, massive breaks to the fat cats on Wall Street and in D.C.,” said Miller. “We’re looking for someone that actually boosts up the working class men and women in America.”

Another development on that front is the creation of the former president’s Super PAC, which Trump 2016 Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski has been tapped to lead. Trump is looking to “engage in some of these primaries, but we have to be smart about” which ones, Lewandowski told “Just the News AM” following the announcement of the Super PAC’s establishment.

“We’re not looking to defeat Republicans who are in districts where if they lose the primary, the seat is going to go to a Democrat,” Lewandowski said, adding that he believes “we can win races in South Carolina, we can beat Liz Cheney in Wyoming and Lisa Murkowski in Alaska.”

Efforts have accelerated in April, with the announcement of Stephen Miller’s “America First Legal,” an organization the Trump policy and messaging stalwart has branded a conservative response to the ACLU. Miller hopes to assist Trump-allied state attorneys general who are fighting legal battles in support of the America First agenda. The organization will likely also mount challenges to Biden policy initiatives.

“Anything the president does that we believe to be illegal is fair game,” Miller told the Wall Street Journal upon announcing the group. Former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows will also play a role inside the organization.

This week, Trump alumni launched the largest post-administration group to date with the America First Policy Institute (AFPI), a 35-person nonprofit aiming to continue to advance the former president’s populist policy agenda. The group will be headed by Brooke Rollins, the former head of Trump’s Domestic Policy Council. While primarily based in D.C., the institute will reportedly also have offices in Miami and New York.

Looking ahead to 2024, Miller says the president has not yet made up his mind about a third White House bid.

“I wouldn’t expect that we hear anything on this really anytime soon,” said Miller.

“I think probably after the midterms is when he’ll make a decision,” he said, adding that the primary race remains Trump’s to lose. “All the polling has shown that the president would be the clear front runner on the GOP side, if he does decide to go and run. Really, the ball’s in his court.”

In the meantime, GOP hopefuls have been making the trip to Mar-a-Lago for face time with the former president. Last weekend, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is enjoying a star-making moment in GOP politics right now, was spotted golfing with Trump. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was slated to deliver the keynote address April 17 at a Lincoln Day fundraising dinner hosted by the Palm Beach County Republican Party at Mar-a-Lago.

“All Republicans roads seem to lead to Mar-a-Lago,” said Miller. “It’s really the center of the Republican universe right now.”

Rounding out this emerging array of funding, policy, and legal arms is an expected social media network. Since the permanent banning of the nation’s 45th president from Twitter and Facebook in January, Team Trump has been brainstorming a platform of their own, a place for the former president to share his thoughts, along with the growing ranks of conservatives who fear retaliation from Big Tech companies that have been aggressively purging or limiting the reach of conservative users on their platforms.

“We’re probably a couple months away from having that ready to go,” said Miller, confirming he’d recently spoken to the former president about the project. “But the president is moving along on that.”

Biden’s Justice Department Says IRS Must Give Trump’s Tax Returns to Congress

Published

on

The U.S. Justice Department has ordered the Internal Revenue Service to hand over Donald Trump’s tax returns to a Democrat-led House of Representatives committee.

The DOJ said in its order that the House panel has offered “sufficient reasons” for requesting the material.

Back in 2019, the department’s Office of Legal Counsel found that the request for Trump’s taxes by the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee was based on a “disingenuous” objective aimed at exposing them to the public.

Now that Joe Biden is in office, the DOJ has reversed course and claims there are “sufficient reasons” for the Democrat panel to see the material.

“We cannot know where receipt of the requested tax information will take the committee, any more than the committee itself can predict what it will find or determine,” wrote Acting Assistant Attorney General Dawn Johnsen for the Office of Legal Counsel.

“The respect due to a co-equal branch of government requires that we presume the Committee will handle the tax information it receives with sensitivity to taxpayer privacy concerns,” Johnson added.

Back in February, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered Donald Trump to releases financial and tax records to prosecutors in Manhattan, New York.

Trump responded in a lengthy statement, calling the ruling “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country.”

“This investigation is a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country, whether it was the never-ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, “Russia Russia Russia,” where there was a finding of “No Collusion,” or two ridiculous “Crazy Nancy” inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY. It just never ends!” Trump wrote.

“So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S. The Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump,” he continued.

“These are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election—an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!” he added.

“That’s what is done in third world countries. Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent,” he said.

Trump continued: “That’s fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won’t stand for it. In the meantime, murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers, and nothing is done about it. Our elected officials don’t care.”

“All they focus on is the persecution of President Donald J. Trump,” he added.

“I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me. We will win!” Trump concluded in his statement.

Published

Former President Donald Trump just announced his next big rally to be hosted by the Alabama Republican Party.  The rally in Cullman on August 21 at 7 p.m. John Wahl, chairman of the Alabama Republican Party confirmed the “York Family Farms” as the location of the rally.

“I believe this will be a huge event for Cullman to be able to host President Trump. We anticipate having thousands of people traveling in from all over Alabama, as well other states, to see President Trump at this rally,” said Senator Garlan Gudger.

Mayor Woody Jacobs said: “Even though this developed rather quickly, we went into ‘teamwork’ mode in making the City of Cullman the best potential site to host an address by the former President.

“Anytime a former president, or sitting president, regardless of party affiliation, reach out to come to our City and address folks, we want to make sure that we give them the best opportunity for that to happen. That takes a lot of people working together.

“This is a rare, historical event for Cullman. It goes without saying that the city is very excited for this opportunity and we will be willing to help in anyway that we are able and can.

“Our primary focus is to make sure this event is safe, family-friendly, and memorable. We look forward to show off our town and our hospitality,” added Jacobs.

“The Trump visit and rally will have a major economic impact on Cullman, no doubt about that. I have gone to these events and seen the thousands of people who attend them which means they stay in your hotels, eat in our restaurants, visit our locals businesses and much more helping our local economy,” said Cullman County Economic Development Director Bradley Williams.

“I tell everyone Cullman is the greatest county in Alabama and we have the best citizens in the state. I look forward to welcoming President Trump to Cullman and working with the Secret Service, the Cullman Police Department and other law enforcement to make sure this event is safe for everyone who wishes to attend,” said Sheriff Matt Gentry.

“I am glad that everyone worked together so that we will be able host President Trump here in Cullman County. I know that this will be a wonderful event and great for our local economy,” said Chairman Jeff Clemons.

Steve Cummings of the Cullman Republican Party. Steve saidt “It’s gonna be huge. 

“I am so proud that Brad took the initiative to make the pitch for Cullman. You know our county had one of the nation’s highest voting percentages for Trump in the 2016 and the 2020 election – above 88% in both elections. 

“Our goal last November was to have the highest in the country. Even though we didn’t win – I think our marketing slogan stuck.  ‘We Are Trump Country’.  

“I think it’d be cool for us to present President Trump with the Key to Trump Country.”

BREAKING: PRESIDENT TRUMP TO HOST A RALLY IN ALABAMA!

Trump Releases a Statement…”If I were President right now…”

Published

on

President Trump just released a statement that begins with, “If I were your President right now…”

He describes the Biden regime’s disarray and then how things were when he was in charge. At the end of the statement he says, “Hopefully, people will NEVER FORGET!”

STATEMENT FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP:

“If I were President right now, with COVID raging back, people being shot and killed in record numbers all over our cities, and the Border totally open with criminals and heavily infected COVID people pouring through our Southern Border and into our communities, the Fake News Media would be having an absolute field day. When I left office law enforcement was supported like never before, the Border was strong, safe, and secure (the best ever!), and I got a highly effective vaccine developed in less than 9 months (when it was supposed to take 5 years, or more!). Hopefully, people will NEVER FORGET!”
