Palin tells tea partiers to ‘take over’ Republican Party
Bipartisan health care reform negotiations would be more productive if lawmakers just had a buzz, according to Sarah Palin. The former Alaska Governor told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the White House “beer summit” accomplished more than Thursday’s health care reform summit.
“I think Michele Bachmann summed it up very well earlier today. She suggested that maybe the beer summit was more productive and fruitful than what we saw today out of the health care summit,” explained Palin.
“Maybe these guys should have popped some tops off some [Miller Genuine Draft beers] and gotten really down to business and gotten the work done,” Palin recommended.
The former governor believes that the health care summit was a “victory” overall for Republicans because Americans got to hear their ideas.
In the same interview, Palin had a message for tea party protesters who are considering starting a third party to run against Republicans. “Now a simple answer to a challenge we face today with the tea party movement — and I believe that I’m a part of that because I’m such a believe in freedom and that’s what the tea party is all about — a simple answer to the challenge that they face and not knowing kind of where we belong right now is to essentially pick a party because we are a two party system,” said Palin.
“It’s a heck of a lot easier to get in there and reform one of the parties and get the people in the party to understand what has built this great country and what will allow for a brighter future for this great country than it is to form a whole new machine and a whole new process via a third party,” the former governor continued.
“Let’s just get in there and take over one of the parties. I vote take over the Republican Party, tea partiers, and get them to see the light,” Palin suggested.

Anti-vax groups online are helping to radicalize the QAnon movement
The alliance between anti-vaxxers and QAnon followers is rapidly increasing as they continue their efforts to spread massive amounts of disturbing misinformation amid the pandemic. One glaring example centers around one incident that occurred last week.
Facebook opted to nix a massive anti-vaccination propaganda group with more than 200,000 members last week. However, the group was not shut down for the dangerous public health misinformation its members posted, but rather, the disturbing promotion of QAnon, reports Huffington Post.
DonaldJTrump2024.com bought by comedians so they could mock him for the loser he is
Two comedians Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler (aka “The Good Liars”) purchased DonaldJTrump2024.com and set it up to mock President Trump for refusing to concede the election, planning a 2024 re-run, and ripping off his followers.
The site, which looks almost identical to Trump’s actual website, DonaldJTrump.com, calls Trump a “loser” six times and has a fictional quote from Trump stating, “I lost the 2020 election.” It also has a banner that says “Click here to donate to a PAC that has nothing to do with my legal defense team.”
Trump is ‘suffocating’ the Republican Party after losing: ex-GOP lawmaker
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) warned that President Donald Trump is "suffocating" the GOP in the wake of his defeat in the 2020 election — beginning with the twin Senate runoff races in Georgia.
"For these two Georgia candidates ... usually you want the guy who won the state to come to town on your behalf. Donald Trump was the first Republican to lose Georgia in about 30 years," said Jolly. "So the question is why would you bring to town the Republican who became the first Republican in 30 years to lose the state of Georgia?"
"I think this will be an interesting test for today and going forward: can the Republican Party survive Donald Trump the man?" said Jolly. "It will survive Trumpism. It's stronger than ever. Republicans performed stronger than ever, just as Democrats have. Trumpism has not hurt the Republican Party by performance. Trump the man is suffocating the party. And I think that's going to be a little bit of a myopic, or a little bit of a small example of what we see in Georgia. Can the Republican Party survive Donald Trump the man? It's fine with Trumpism, but can it survive the man?"
