Sasse On Alabama Senate Race:
'Feels Like this Party -That I’m a Part of-
has Gone Post-Constitutional'


Allahpundit RedState:
An interesting bit from Jonah Goldberg’s podcast, The Remnant. Goldberg puts Sasse on the spot by asking whether he’ll be following the lead of his libertarian-ish colleagues in the Senate -Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and most recently Ted Cruz- by endorsing Roy Moore, who’s as far from libertarian as a Republican can get. 

Sasse won’t give him a straight answer, pleading that he hasn’t followed the race closely, but he’s followed it closely enough to know that Moore thinks Muslims should be barred from holding seats in Congress. That’s a religious test, he notes, which is barred by the Constitution, and he’s not ready for a 'post-constitutional' party. Moore, he goes on to say, seems to have little interest in conservatism but instead appeals to a politics of 'white-backlash grievance.' ....

Lays Groundwork for Trump Impeachment


If you’ve been waiting for another Republican Senator to follow Bob Corker’s lead by coming out swinging against Donald Trump, then wait no more. On Wednesday, John McCain hit Trump firmly but narrowly over his failure to abide by Russian sanctions. But then Ben Sasse stepped to the plate late on Wednesday night, and let’s just say that he was more direct in his condemnation of Trump...

Sasse Statement on Russia’s NSA Hack

October 5, 2017

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement regarding reports that Russia stole highly classified information from the National Security Agency regarding American offensive and defensive cybersecurity measures.

“It’s a lot harder to beat your opponent when they’re reading your playbook, and it’s even worse when someone on your team gives it to them. If these reports are true, Russia has pulled that off. The men and women of the U.S. Intelligence Community are patriots; but, the NSA needs to get its head out of the sand and solve its contractor problem. Russia is a clear adversary in cyberspace and we can’t afford these self-inflicted injuries.”

REDSTATE: Ben Sasse Pretty Much Nailed It on Trump And The NFL...


As much as I really didn’t want to get into it, there is a point – call it the final point, if you want – that no one has really talked about,
save one U.S. Senator from the midwest...
