OUT! – Trump-Backed Morgan Ortagus Scrubs Ex-Prez from Website, Appearing to Abandon Challenge to State Party Disqualification.

Donald Trump’s candidate for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional district has scrubbed the former President from her campaign website, and appears to be in the middle of abandoning her run for Congress. Ortagus’s Twitter biography has changed in recent weeks, since she was first removed from the ballot by the Tennessee GOP under rules concerning Republican bonafides. Other removed candidates are challenging the rules in federal court. But Ortagus’s website, which featured multiple endorsements and mentions of former President Donald Trump, is now a simple landing page with the tag line, “Thank You” on a browser tab. Sources close to Ortagus have confirmed

The Battle for TN-5: Trump Defends Ortagus Pick and Suggests Robby Starbuck Voted for Obama… Except He Didn’t?

President Donald J. Trump defended his controversial endorsement of former State Department official Morgan Ortagus on Newsmax this week, going so far as to claim that her opponent in the Republican Primary for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District, Robby Starbuck, voted for Barack Obama. Except, according to Starbuck, no such thing ever happened. Trump, who has endorsed a number of former Democrats including ex-Obama donor Kari Lake (AZ), took to the airwaves on Tuesday to offer his thoughts on the decision that has roiled his MAGA base: “Well, I didn’t know Robby Starbuck; I have known Morgan; she’s been in the

Trump’s TN-5 Pick Morgan Ortagus Launched a Consulting Firm with Her ‘Best Friend’ – A CNN Contributor Turned Biden Official Who Called Trump ‘Hitler’.

Morgan Ortagus – the Trump administration official mulling a controversial run for Congress in Tennessee – co-founded a consultancy firm alongside her “best friend” Samantha Vinograd, a former CNN contributor who now works in Joe Biden’s White House. Vinograd has an extensive history of bashing former President Trump, even likening him to Adolf Hitler. Ortagus – who was Mike Pompeo’s State Department spokesman during the Trump administration – received a preemptive “complete and total endorsement” from the former president, in a move that has left the America First base baffled and angered. Filmmaker and grassroots activist Robby Starbuck has been

EXC: Leaked Email Shows Trump-Backed Tennessee Congressional Hopeful Morgan Ortagus Pledging To ‘Faithfully Serve The Biden Administration.’

Morgan Ortagus – a high-level Trump administration official mulling a run for Congress in Tennessee – pledged to “faithfully serve the Biden administration” in a goodbye email sent to State Department colleagues in an e-mail obtained exclusively by The National Pulse. Ortagus, a spokesman for the State Department during the Trump administration, received a preemptive “complete and total endorsement” from her former boss President Trump, in a move that has stunned the MAGA base. Filmmaker and grassroots activist Robby Starbuck has been considered the frontrunner and favorite of Trump’s base thus far in Tennessee’s 5th Congressional district. “I couldn’t be

EXCLUSIVE: Republican Senate Hopeful Bill Hagerty On Board of Billion Dollar Firm Pumping Out Black Lives Matter Messages

Establishment Republican Senate candidate Bill Hagerty’s multi-billion dollar investment firm is currently peddling pro-Black Lives Matter messages on its social media feeds. “R.J. O’Brien stands proudly with the African American Community in support of EQUALITY & PEACE,” the message read, followed by the #BLACKLIVESMATTER hashtag. The firm then boasted of donating to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) legal fund. The message from Hagerty’s firm came on the fifth day of rioting and looting across American cities, May 31st. Just one day after a molotov cocktail attack on police in New York, and moments after President Trump had

Taylor Swift Turns Political — And Loses Her Novelty

I remember the good old days — and by that, I mean less than 10 years ago — when Taylor Swift burst onto the scene. She was a breath of fresh air — a wholesome star with compelling, honest lyrics who took the country and pop scenes by storm at the same time. She avoided going down the rabbit holes of destruction that had taken other stars like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus. It was very hard to dislike Taylor Swift. At some point, though, things changed for Swift. I don’t follow the tabloids, but something caused her lyrics to

Bill Creating Monument to Unborn Abortion Victims Nears Passage in Tenn.

A bill that seeks to erect a monument dedicated to unborn victims of abortion is currently working its way through the Tennessee state legislature. The bill was passed by the Tennessee Senate and will now make its way to the House. If passed, it would create a monument to be erected on the grounds of the Tennessee State Capitol, inscribed with the words “Tennessee Monument to Unborn Children, In Memory of the Victims of Abortion: Babies, Women, and Men.” Funding will not come from the taxpayers and is simply being listed as originating from “non-state sources.” Both chambers of the

Stolen Rights: Why Government Seizure of Innocent Americans’ Property Must End

This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation In her Liberty Minute titled “Forfeit this Practice,” Helen Krieble discusses one of the most blatant violations of freedom that regularly occurs in the United States: civil asset forfeiture. Convicted criminals obviously can’t keep ill-gotten wealth, but police often seize property from people who aren’t even charged with a crime, much less convicted. If police merely suspect something was acquired illegally they can take it under a program called civil asset forfeiture. It’s become a regular source of funding for
