And, for those wondering where they may have heard Weld mentioned recently, the former GOP Governor also ran as the Libertarian Party’s vice presidential candidate back in 2016.

It seems as though Donald Trump may not have a cut and dry path to reelection in 2020 after all.

For months, there has been speculation as to whether or not anyone would attempt to challenge Donald Trump in the republican primaries for the upcoming election.  Whispers and rumors were all that we had experienced….until today, that is.

Former Massachusetts GOP Gov. Bill Weld has launched a committee to explore a Republican primary challenge against President Trump.

Weld formally made the announcement Friday at “Politics and Eggs,” a must stop in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire for any White House hopeful.

Weld was certain to make it clear how he feels about the Commander in Chief.
Fox News reported on Wednesday that Weld, a very vocal Trump critic, would likely announce at “Politics and Eggs” that he was taking a step toward launching a longshot bid to unseat the president. The event kicked off a two-day swing by Weld through the state, meeting with GOP activists and former leaders.

Weld warned in his speech that “our country is in grave peril and I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines anymore.”

And he slammed Trump, claiming “we have a president whose priorities are skewed toward promoting of himself rather than toward the good of the country.”

ICYMI: If Warren Becomes POTUS She Will Investigate ‘Crimes Committed By U.S. Against Immigrants’

Isn’t she the best!?

You don’t need another reason to not vote for Elizabeth Warren in 2020. She has provided enough, as it is. During a speech at the far-left Netroots Nation conference, Warren said something pretty darn wild probably just to hear her own voice. Here’s the scoop, per BizPac Review: Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren promised a crowd of supporters on Saturday that on her first day in the White House, she would create a commission to investigate “crimes committed by the United States against immigrants.” The well-known Warren Commission of days gone by investigated the killing of a president. A new Warren Commission would, in essence, be about a president killing the United States. Warren noted, “On my first day, I will empower a commission in the Department of Justice to investigate crimes committed by the United States against immigrants.” For some odd reason, Elizabeth keeps rising in the polls. Many its the promise of free stuff? While she’s at it, might as well add in some reparations for gays. Her tweet: It wasn’t until marriage equality became law that gay & lesbian couples could jointly file tax returns—so they paid more in taxes. Our government owes them more than $50M for the years our discriminatory tax code left them out. We must right these wrongs. https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1142597507018579968?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1142597507018579968&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fliz-warren-sees-your-slavery-reparations-and-raises-you-gay-reparations%2F From the article she tweeted: LGBTQ+ Americans have historically received unjust treatment by the United States government, but some politicians are now looking to correct past wrongs. On June 20, Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren introduced the Refund Equality Act, a bill that would benefit same-sex couples formerly discriminated against through the U.S. Tax Code due to unequal marriage laws. If the act passes, LGBTQ+ couples married in states where their union was recognized before gay marriage was legalized nationwide…

FLASHBACK: Trump Delivers Crushing Blow to Obama’s Legacy, Saves Taxpayers $450 Billion

SORRY…NOT SORRY!

President Trump is getting things done for the American people, day after day, month after month. It’s too bad that some people can’t realize that. A new study suggests Obamacare reforms will save the American people nearly $500 billion. That’s billion with a “b.” This is what winning looks like… A White House study released on Friday found that President Donald Trump’s Obamacare reforms will save Americans roughly $450 billion over the next ten years. A White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) study released on Friday found that Americans will save $450 billion through Trump’s Obamacare reforms. The CEA suggested that Trump’s repeal of the Obamacare individual mandate and the expansion of short-term insurance plans and Association Health Plans (AHPs) will save Americans billions over the next ten years. The White House also suggested that the benefits of Trump’s deregulatory actions saved Americans billions, increased access to more health insurance options, and did not amount to a “sabotage” of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The U.S. military loves President Trump. Makes sense, right? Trump loves the U.S. military right back. However, the military was not so fond of Barack Obama. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1079398853684707328?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1079398853684707328&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fnew-poll-shows-a-majority-of-military-members-approve-of-trump%2F From AP: Nearly 6 in 10 military veterans voted for Republican candidates in the November midterm elections, and a similar majority had positive views of President Donald Trump’s leadership. But women, the fastest growing demographic group in the military, are defying that vote trend. That’s according to AP VoteCast, a nationwide survey of more than 115,000 midterm voters — including more than 4,000 current and former service members — conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago. It found that veterans overall approved of Trump’s job performance, showing high support for the president’s handling of border security and his efforts to make the U.S.…
