Former President Donald Trump vowed to speak at this weekend’s National Rifle Association convention even after an 18-year-old gunman killed 21 people, including 19 children, at a Texas elementary school. Denouncing “politicians and partisanship,” Trump said he would appear as scheduled on Friday at the pro-gun group’s annual confab in Houston, about four hours east of the town of Uvalde where the slaughter unfolded. “Americans need real leadership and real solutions at this moment,” he wrote in a post on his new Truth Social platform. Trump echoed complaints by Republican leaders that Democra...

Kellyanne Conway says 'sad and frustrated' Trump needs to stop obsessing over 2020 if he wants to be in the White House again
Former senior Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway expressed her concern about the Republican leader's obsession about the 2020 election, the Washington Times reported.
Trump continues to watch the House Select Committee footage, posting comments on his social media site and ranting about people who worked for him.
The conservative outlet explained that Trump could even win the Republican nomination in 2024, but only if he stops talking about 2020 and sucks up that he lost.
Conway swears that despite Trump's rants about the Jan. 6 attack, his team selling him out and losing the 2020 election, he's actually “sad and frustrated” about the direction of the country.
Conway claimed that Biden and Harris ruined the country, citing blaming high gas prices on green energy and attacked the Afghanistan withdrawal after the deal Trump made with the Taliban.
“The second reason he wants to run is because Donald Trump is uniquely positioned to say, ‘I can do it because I already did it,'" Conway claimed.
“If President Trump wants to run in 2024, and he does … he should just look forward and project a vision forward, go to the future and recognize that every great presidential candidate, including him in 2016, has that vision of looking forward and reflects the people’s grievances, not his own grievances, the people’s grievances — their economic … anxiety and uncertainty, their feeling of … uncertainty and chaos and crisis everywhere we look, and reflect to them that he is the guy who will come and mitigate if not eliminate all of that,” she said.
She teased one of Trump's favorites, "the rallies" which she called "vintage Trump 2015-2016."
“All of that [Trump agenda] was so compelling, and people understood exactly why he was running and what they would get,” she said. “A combination of vintage Trump with those amazing accomplishments in 2020, he can be unstoppable in 2024.”
She went on to attack Ron DeSantis, saying that he might be "unbelievably strong," he never would have been elected if it wasn't for Donald Trump.
She also blamed the 2020 loss on Jared Kushner, saying that he's trying to "wash his hands" of his role while scoring billions for his own business.
“There’s nobody who’s profited more handsomely from Donald Trump’s presidency than Jared Kushner,” Conway continued. “If you believe the news reports … he’s gotten billions of dollars for his [investment] fund.”
She clearly believes that Mr. Trump would be making a mistake to campaign in 2024 on his claims that the election was stolen from him in 2020, although she believes the election wasn’t conducted fairly.
She refused to talk about the stolen election, saying that people like Rudy Giuliani had time to show evidence and didn't.
“We’ve got to move on," she said.
A Virginia man has pleaded guilty to storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and stealing government property, Law&Crime reports.
Ryan Seth Suleski, 34, admitted on Wednesday that he stormed the Capitol and stole some documents he found on the floor of an empty hallway. He pleaded guilty to entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds and theft of government property. He faces up to one year in jail and a maximum $100,000 fine if he's convicted. His plea deal spares him the more serious charge of obstruction of an official proceeding of Congress, which carries a prison term of 20 years.
After Suleski entered the Capitol, he repeatedly tried to open locked doors throughout the building. When he reached the third floor, he saw papers that belonged to a "known congressman" scattered on the floor, looked through them, and then rolled them up and put them in his backpack.
After leaving the building, Suleski was interviewed by the BBC.
“That is just not how things are done in this country,” the reporter said to Suleski.
“Right,” Suleski replied.
“Lawlessness, storming buildings, even, and that is what happened today,” the reporter said.
“This nation wasn’t founded on civility,” Suleski said in response. “This nation was founded on revolutionary activity. We became civil after the government realized that they got overwhelmed.”
“So, what happens now?” the reporter asked.
“I guess now we wait and see if they take us seriously because they saw how easily we were able to breach their defense,” Suleski answered.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) revealed that running for president is "not something that I don't consider."
During an interview on Wednesday, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones pushed the Georgia lawmaker to launch a 2024 campaign.
"I think you would poll better and be a better candidate than [Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)] and [former President Donald Trump]," Jones insisted. "I'd rather just go ahead and back you for president."
"You're way smarter," the radio host pressed after Greene laughed. "You're smarter than both of them and you've got the guts we need. Everybody loves you. I'm serious. We need to think about MTG for president."
"Get the New World Order off my back! Stop the Drag Queen story time!" he shouted. "We want you, MTG!"
"Well, thank you, Alex, and I will tell you it's not something that I don't consider," Greene replied. "But you know I'm the kind of person that if I ever get engaged in something, I'm going to win. And I won't do something unless I think it's possible."
Greene went on to say that she would serve as a Vice President for Trump or Florida Gov.
