It’s looking more and more like Joe Biden will be the next president. Notice I didn’t say it looks like Biden WON the election, or it looks like Biden will be OUR next president. In my opinion, which I think I’m still entitled to, at least for a while, Biden will not be my president. Not because of Sophomoric sour grapes, that “my” guy didn’t win, but because of the policy positions he and his radical handlers are already putting forth.
In years gone by, I and other like-minded constitutionalists just sucked it up and made the best of the duly-elected president. Yep, we didn’t like Obama. he was bad for America, but he won the election twice, fair and square. read more
Is It Over? GOP Reportedly Has Votes To Block Witnesses In Early End To Impeachment
Hours after Democratic Senator Joe Manchin said Hunter Biden would be a “relevant witness” in President Trump’s impeachment trial, Senate Republicans seem to think there aren’t enough votes to call witnesses following a morning meeting between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) which lasted approximately 30 minutes.
According to The Hill, the meeting “was seen as a sign by several senators that Democrats will fail to convince four Republicans to join them in calling for witnesses. Without a vote to hear from witnesses, the trial could end as soon as Friday.” read more
If the Nancy Pelosi and the House ends up formally sending there bogus Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for trial, what may happen? Rumor has it that the Mitch McConnell and the majority Republicans in the Senate may just dismiss the charges.
Regardless of how we all feel, the Senate should, at the very least, acquit Trump on both charges and I discuss the reasons why. read more
This is stunning! Seeing an MSNBC anchor call out a fellow climate change traveler for her hypocrisy. I wonder what’s next – that these true believers on Cable News will figure out that the politicians they love are just that – politicians. That they don’t actually believe any of this crap?
from the Blaze:
MSNBC’s Katy Tur presses Sen. Hirono after no Dem votes for Green New Deal: ‘you’re trying to have it both ways’
After no Democratic senator voted in favor of the Green New Deal on Tuesday, the party line was to blame Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for trying to divide the party with a “show vote.” read more
Talk about leading from behind. We used to think it shameful that Obama would lead from behind, by letting other world leaders do whatever heavy lifting needed to be done (not that much ever had to be done), and then Obama would just hop on the bandwagon –being praised by leftists for it.
Obama was the king of leading from behind – until now. It seems our dear Senate majority leader, the one and only (thank heavens) Mitch McConnell may have dethroned the king. read more
Staff for Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) are not outright denying a new report from The Atlantic magazine that Hatch, another ally of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, plans to retire at the end of his current term—another death blow for the failing Senate Majority Leader.
There’s something odd going on in the Republican Party. All of the sudden, Mitch McConnell appears to be leading the establishment wing of the Party toward Trump.
This is very strange indeed, for nary a kind, or even civil word has been said of the President lo these last several months by any the lords and ladies of the ruling class.
Now, the midterm elections are just over a year away. Historically the mushy moderates all start moving right like clock work, ala John McCain, attempting to convince (lie to) voters of their conservative bona fides – voters who have paid scant attention between the last election and this.
But it seems to be starting a bit early. And this may be due, at least in part, to republican internal polling – something of which we commoners in the general population will never be privy.
We hear constantly of how unpopular Trump is and that only his hardcore base is continuing to stand by him. Yet establishment Republicans are far less popular than Trump. And I’m guessing the latest batch of internal polling tells them so. read more
There are a lot of things to discuss this week, but the elephant in the room is North Korea and President Trump’s supposed reckless handling of the situation.
Since everyone and their cousin are giving their learned opinion on the matter, I have instead decided to concentrate on a topic I think Trump is in fact handling rather cavalierly. Some might even say ignorantly. This is his recent endorsement of RINO Republican candidate and current Alabama junior Sen. Luther Strange in the upcoming special election primary on Aug. 15.
Strange was appointed to keep the seat warm when Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general. Outsider and self-professed swamp-drainer Trump, who was elected as the “insurgent” candidate, had his choice of two other great constitutional conservative and anti-swamp candidates in Rep. Mo Brooks and Judge Roy Moore, both of whom are now running against Strange. Moore has been leading in recent polls. Both these choices are also considered to be insurgents, but Trump pulled the lever for the establishment Strange. read more
On his radio program Monday evening, Mark Levin was discussing the ghastly way the Republican Party has treated us regarding the whole healthcare debacle. Mark said, “It’s amazing to me that a man can remain the Majority Leader, McConnell, when the man controlling the Senate, for all intents and purposes, is Chuck Schumer.”
Levin said, “we thought Republicans would repeal ObamaCare – we thought that would be a no-brainer.”
Mark then took some calls. The discussion turned to single payer. One woman told Levin that she thinks Americans don’t really understand what single payer truly is. She said that “Joe-six-pack doesn’t know what it means.” Mark disagreed that “Joe six-pack does know what it means, because Joe six-pack has to deal with it too.”
I rarely disagree with Mark, but I have to this time and side with the female caller, who sounded British.
The public doesn’t understand what single payer truly is. They couldn’t. Just as with many other life experiences, single payer, top to bottom run government healthcare must be experienced first-hand, apparently, in order for many to discover just how bad it is. read more
