The assertion about the mid-terms is that the Dobbs decision is motivating female voters to turn out for Democrats. Is there any truth to this claim? Only in polling. But, as I’ve pointed out before, polling is the political metric most open to manipulation.
This also leaves out the fact that not all women back abortion. I know the the MSM will never cover such a thing, but the bottom line is that women have been leading the charge against Roe ever since the decision was handed down. Would not their victory against overwhelming odds and after so many years of struggle motivate them to cement their achievement into a pro-life Congress?
For me, I just don’t see abortion as being that great a motivator for the Democrats outside of the urban and suburban upper class white women who were going to vote for them anyway. Might get a few more of them to actually show up in November, but not in any numbers necessary to save Democrat bacon.
I stand by my prediction – made months ago – that the GOP is heading for a blowout win on November 8th. Could I be wrong? Of course I could. I’m human! But we’re in a recession. Food prices are high. Crime is rising. Foreign affairs are a mess. Its the first midterm for the Democrats since their victory. The GOP gained House seats in 2020. They only need a few to claim a majority. Voter registration and primary participation numbers (even after Dobbs) clearly favor the GOP all around the country (it won’t matter because the State is so Democrat, but in Hawaii the GOP primary turnout was up like 125% or some such).
And lets think about something – if you’re a Democrat you sure in heck don’t want to talk about the economy or crime or foreign affairs. But you have to talk about something. Sure, you’re talking Trump…but you can’t just talk about him, right? So, what? How about abortion? That’s the ticket – talk abortion. Maybe frame it to scare our halfwit female voters (something like 36% of college educated white women agree with the sentence “some men can get pregnant”; rely on it, the number of GOP women included in that 36% is next to zero)? Goose that turnout and maybe turn a few narrow, suburban losses into holds? And then, hey preseto, here comes a bunch of polls saying that women are talking 24/7 about abortion and, buddy let me tell you, they’re gonna make the GOP pay for it! Convenient how everything in the Establishment comes together just the way the Democrats would want, right?
Now, maybe women are fired up to save Roe? Could be. I guess. If so, then we on the right have a far larger problem than we suspected. We’ll find out for sure on November 8th…but I’m sticking with my prediction.
Over in Pennsylvania Dr Oz is doing all he can to win – he’s barnstorming the State while Fetterman apparently still has a long way to go on recovery from his recent stroke. As I’ve been saying for a while, Pennsylvania is the next Florida. Voter registration trends have been massive for the GOP year after year. It might seem like the State is still favorable to Democrats, but that is an illusion mostly brought about by habit and really, really bad polling. Remember, in 2018 4 of the last 5 polls in Florida showed a substantial lead in the governors race for Gillum…only to have DeSantis win. And it wasn’t like the polls were close – the day before the election Quinninpiac had Gillum up by 7. So, I take those polls showing Fetterman (who can barely speak) up by 10 over Oz with a truckload of salt. Same, too, with the governors race in PA. Some people got mad the other day when Oz said he would have voted to certify the 2020 results…but I didn’t. I pointed out early on that Oz will have to go off-MAGA on at least some issues to be electorally viable in a State trending Red but not quite there yet. Taking a contrary position on the 2020 election result is the most meaningless off-MAGA gesture he could make.
Latinos are trending GOP. Hard. And Democrats are starting to notice and it is really pissing them off. So, what do you think they’re doing about it? Reassessing how they approach the community? Reconsidering things like Latinx and telling school kids they can change gender? Maybe concentrate on policies which will provide the sort of well-paid, blue collar jobs which sustain most Latino families these days? Oh, heck no! What made you think they’d do anything like that?
What they’re doing in response to the GOP gains in the Latino community is figuring that the GOP is lying to them and that Latinos are too stupid to figure this out:
There is nobody quite so racist as a white liberal – they simply cannot believe that any POC would disagree with them and if they do, it is because they’re stupid…and so need white liberals to speak for them.
I do believe – and it is one of the reasons for my prediction of a GOP blowout win – that Latinos will show that they want something different in November. This vote will not necessarily be an endorsement of the GOP: it will be far more, in my view, a rejection of the Left than anything else. To secure the long term loyalty of Latino voters, the GOP will have to do the concrete things necessary to show them we’re serious – a strong economy; low crime; good schools. That sort of thing. As for the Democrats, their party strength is in upper class white women and black women in general. This is not enough to sustain them in power. If they lose Latinos (and they are) and if support among black males starts to crumble (there is some indication of this) then Democrats will be reduced to an urban rump incapable of winning national power.
“Good men will have to do bad things soon, and it hurts my soul.” 🙏🏻
Biden’s incompetence, anger and dictatorial actions have reached critical mass. The raid on MAL and the creepy Hitler like speech delivered last week showed everyone who Democrats truly are and most Americans reject that whole heartedly. Add to that the disaster of the economy because of the green new agenda, and the constant moral lectures from very unimpressive people, and I think Americans will definitely decide to go in a new direction.
most Americans reject that whole heartedly.
I’ll bet we know three who don’t. Just sayin’.
And then you wonder if things like this also have turned people off to Democrat leadership:
‘Soft-touch’ San Francisco leaders now call for ‘IDEAS’ to be given to them within 90 days to end open-air drug markets ‘without anyone going to jail’: Overdose deaths hit 1,700 since 2020 as users run rampant across the city
They created the problem and now admit to not having a clue what to do. Sure makes you want to vote for them again, right? Oh but they will let women kill their unborn children, so Casper is excited about that.
‘Soft-touch’ San Francisco leaders now call for ‘IDEAS’ to be given to them within 90 days to end open-air drug markets ‘without anyone going to jail’
Here’s an out-of-the-box idea. More overdose deaths — lots more.
During a recent covid-19 team press briefing, Biden’s covid advisor Ashish Jha said he “truly believe[s] this is why God gave us two arms — one for the flu shot and the other one for the COVID shot.”
So, if the right arm is for the flu shot, and the left arm is for the covid shot, in what member will Jha take his monkeypox shot? Asking for a friend.
Honestly I don’t know what Democrats and the media have to do anymore to show us how little they care about this country and it’s people. MSNBC aired a 20 minute segment this morning with Frank Luntz all about the horrible plight of children in Africa and how the United States is just not doing enough to help them. They could do segments like that everyday about the poor children in Chicago, Baltimore, LA, etc.
It’s beyond belief anymore how f***ing bad they are.
So those people who regularly watch news and current events are usually the most informed and tuned in people … and their viewing habits should concern those who run the networks, particularly MSNBC and CNN. I’m sure their share holders would prefer to boost viewership and not the propaganda, hence the current turmoil at CNN. How soon before MSNBC follows that lead??

I can’t believe Maddow is getting that many viewers but I guess if Lefties want to watch TV at 9 it’s either that or Hannity. That does explain the type and level of insanity we see here and in other places, though—if people are getting “informed” by Maddow they are getting total crap spoon-fed to them and then they regurgitate it all over the place—projectile vomiting of nonsense and lies.
Although Tucker is technically an entertainment show, I find it to be more information than opinion.
Tucker and Jesse are covering the stories no one else does and stories that are highly relevant and news worthy. The complicit media is simply pure propaganda at this point. No objective news whatsoever
Probably not the last time we’re going to hear stories like this:
That’s going to be interesting when the health ministry has to explain to the public their lie. There’s some satisfaction watching a high level government employee stand there with their pants around their ankles attempting to weasel out of a lie when everyone knows otherwise.
Ya have to love whistleblowers with smart phones. In Israel some might actually be held accountable.
Queen Elizabeth has passed away. I found her to be a woman of quiet strength and dignity. There was talk a while back whether Charles would be king when he married Camille. TV says he automatically becomes kings at the Queen’s passing.
She was Queen for over a quarter of the time that we’ve been a country.
Wow that’s incredible. I’m not a fan of the royal family but the Queen was an authentic and down to earth woman. God rest her soul.
I always like the Queen. From her youth, when she convinced her father the King to let her and her younger sister go out and mingle with the crowds to her service during the War, driving and doing mechanical work, to the dignity with which she handled her job as monarch I had a lot of respect for her.
I saw her once, at a distance of about 30 feet. My husband and I decided to spend Christmas in London (which I mentioned earlier in a comment on short days at that latitude) and we went to the Ascot race track. We saw a small crowd around a covered patio, with a sleigh piled high with boxes standing at one edge, and we went over to see what it was all about. Then the Queen and the Queen Mother came out into the covered area, waved, made a couple of “have a wonderful Christmas” comments and went back in. What impressed me at the time was they both seemed to be having a great time and didn’t act like this was some drudgery they had to go through.
(Though maybe their horses had been winning that day. Both were avid horsewomen and had racing stables, and ran a lot of horses at Ascot, which is very close to Windsor Castle.)
Not impressed with Charles.
After watching the embarrassing low-class spectacle of the Obamas interacting with Queen Elizabeth—her manhandling the Queen when protocol says that NO ONE touches the Monarch, and Barry’s “gift” being a iPod loaded with his speeches—I said I could see the benefit of having a permanent separate agency to deal with protocol and so on, similar to that of the monarchy, so we would no longer risk electing some crude yahoos with no clue of how to act when invited indoors and then sending them out to represent our country. I said maybe a system like the British monarchy isn’t so bad—-the young are taught from infancy how to behave, how to entertain, how to interact with foreign dignitaries and how to represent the country with dignity and charm, leaving the actual government to the elected officials.
This was partly tongue in cheek, of course, but it sure got outraged howls of NO MONARCHY ! I never suggested having a king or queen, just thinking about a parallel hereditary level of service well-versed in how to represent our nation in all but actual governance and politics. I think the spectacles of Shartly Pudding Brain, Cackles Harris and the Obamas representing our nation support that basic concept, though of course it would be impossible to enact.
CNN has got this monarch thing figured out, as they explain that “Charles has become King after decades of climate change advocacy”.
Well, then, why is isn’t Algore the next king?
So a Democrat politician shot and killed a journalist the other day and the complicit media hasn’t found the time to cover the story. Good thing it wasn’t one of those extreme MAGA politicians.
It’s that “selective” thing Leftists do so well. You know, selective outrage, selective morality, selective justice, selective truth, selective rules, selective accountability………….you get the point.
There are reports today that Ray Epps was in contact with Nancy Pelosi’s office prior to Jan 6. And reports out today that the NIH and Fauci was partnered with Moderna for the Covid vaccine two weeks prior to the pandemic engulfing the world.
The depth of Democrat party criminal activity is mind numbing and we’re all still pretending that they’re “saving democracy”
This is twilight zone shit and completely unsustainable.
Fauci had been involved with the Chinese lab NIH and both of the main drug companies for a decade or more. He has been, for a while now, the highest paid federal employee, while making millions in his side hustles.
Maybe I’m just a naive old fart, but I still believe the guys in white hats win in the end. As I get older, though, I wonder more and more just how much of what we see in this world is actual evil, and how much is just people who either don’t care or don’t believe in anything. I’m probably not going to get the answer before I ride off into the sunset.
Oh they covered the story—they just left out the “Democrat” part.
This is absolutely brilliant
About sums up the reason so many people continue to vote and act like leftist. Either totally evil or too hooked on the lie.
The hook that sets the lie so deeply it is hard to dislodge is the message that the Left is the short cut to the Higher Moral Ground. When the base for your belief system is how it makes you FEEL—in the case of the Left, feeling morally superior—you’re not going to let go of that smug sense of being better than the other guy.
The Left knows this and plays it to the hilt, by constantly running the narrative that its opposition is morally inferior. This replaces objective analytical analysis of facts with constant reinforcement of feelings. This is how all cults operate.
Quote of the day:
“And then there is NPR. Why don’t we just merge the Washington Post and NPR and rename the result ‘Pravda’?” (Dr. Robert Malone)
I’ve read several comments on the new Obama White House portrait and none have commented on what I thought is the most obvious—that it’s Obama’s gloating joke on us, as he now has a tacit admission hanging on the wall of the White House that we elected a man with no background.
Gutfeld made that exact observation last night on The Five. You have to wonder if it’s TOWHABWF giving us the middle finger.
Last night is maybe the second time I have not stayed up to watch Gutfeld. Naturally he had the same observation I did about the portrait.
BTW, have any of you noticed the latest semantic shift? Now illegal aliens are “refugees”, Casper tried this crap here, and then I saw it repeated in a Newsweek article.
I thought the all white background was just overt racism but I like the analogy of that being Obama’s life better. He always has been an empty suit.
A couple of comments on the recent dismissal of Trump’s RICO lawsuit against Hillary, et al.
The judge said that the way many events were characterized in the amended complaint “are implausible because they lack any specific allegations which might provide factual support for the conclusions reached,” including the characterization that former FBI Director James Comey and other government officials “overzealously targeted” Trump.
Isn’t this a statement that lying under oath to get a bogus warrant to spy on American citizens is NOT “overzealous”? Just business as usual, just another day at the FBI? And citing previous rulings on the malfeasance of FBI and CIA officials is not “factual support” for the allegations of misconduct?
Then there is this, which applies, I think, to the current White House claim that after the MAL raid Trump might be charged with “obstructing justice”.
The judge said Trump also “fails to account for the Supreme Court’s requirement that to obstruct justice there must be a nexus to a judicial or grand jury proceeding,” he added later.
The White House (and make no mistake about it, the whole attack on Trump comes from the White House and the desperate need to keep Trump from going up against Joe or whoever else they nominate in 2024) can’t keep its lapdog judge rulings straight. Of course, they might figure if King Joe can retroactively waive executive privilege for a former president they can retroactively file charges or seat a grand jury to support their “obstruction” claims.
Florida Watchdog Groups Allege Mail-in Ballot and Voter Roll Violations in 2022 Primary and 2020 General Election
” The group found over 30,000 residential addresses that were designated by the United States Postal Service as undeliverable.”
But… the leftist newspapers said they were the fairest elections we’ve ever had.
I have said for years that every state should send out a letter to every registered voter, clearly marked that it cannot be forwarded. All that are returned result in those names being removed from the voter registration rolls. During this period of time have a major media blitz telling people if they have moved and are no longer at their registered addresses they will no longer be registered and must immediate take steps to register at their new addresses, or they will not be able to vote.
(This could be augmented with the advances in electronic data storage, so addresses can also be identified as legitimate addresses. When I did a boundary adjustment on my farm, so I could sell part of it, I had to incorporate a vacant lot I already owned into the lot where my house is, and was given the new address that formerly identified that lot. It took me months to be able to get my bank account addresses changed because their software said this was not a residential lot and the county was slow in making the adjustment. If banks can do this the states can.)
The envelopes that are delivered should contain a form that has to be filled out and returned to remain on the registered voter rolls. This form requires the person to attest that he or she is
(1) A citizen of the United States —- with a place for naturalized citizens to cite the place and date of naturalization and the case number of their process
(2) Not registered in any other precinct or state, and that this is the sole registration address
This would clearly state that the answers are under penalty of perjury for lying, and state a penalty. It would also state that falsifying voter information, and voting illegally, are felonies.
Enclose a stamped addressed envelope to use to return the form. This should help clean up the voter rolls.
Then do not allow same-day registration, and go back to allowing mail-in ballots only for certain reasons and only after application for such ballots. This, and requiring voter ID, ought to seriously limit opportunities to cheat in elections. (To address the problem of long lines to vote, it could be possible to expand in-person voting to two days, with the same rules and restrictions as same-day voting, and not release results until Election Day.
What is so interesting is that every time anything like this has been suggested, it has been suggested by a Republican, and the strident shrieks of outrage and opposition have always come from Democrats. But we’re not supposed to attach any significance to that………
Well well well
According to a new Rasmussen Reports survey, Republican and Independent voters overwhelmingly agree that Biden should be impeached, along with a third of Democrats. Overall, 52 percent of likely U.S. voters say they would support the impeachment of Biden, with 38 percent saying they would strongly support it.
It’s just that impeachment would be nothing more than a symbolic gesture. We all know it would not be followed by removal from office—one, we wouldn’t get the votes in Congress to do that, and two, we wouldn’t want to advance Kammy.
I prefer our fighting to be less hyperbolic and more focused. The only charge I would like to see brought against Joe in an impeachment hearing—the only one that could lead to something significant—would be charges of negligence or worse in his promotion of the vaccines. It is literally impossible for the White House to be unaware of the evidence of vaccine ineffectiveness and danger, and to promote it so strongly—-and to use taxpayer money to pay the drug companies pumping it out—-is criminal.
THIS would be a productive hearing.
A team of nine experts from Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and other top universities has published paradigm-shifting research about the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccines and why mandating vaccines for college students is unethical.
This 50-page study, which was published on The Social Science Research Network at the end of August, analyzed CDC and industry-sponsored data on vaccine adverse events, and concluded that mandates for COVID-19 boosters for young people may cause 18 to 98 actual serious adverse events for each COVID-19 infection-related hospitalization theoretically prevented.
When we look at the people who have been shoving these still-experimental drugs at our people, especially our children, we know there is no excuse for their ignorance. The evidence has been out there for well over a year, yet school administrators are still demanding vaccination and our own government is still paying not just for the drugs but for ads pushing the drugs.
These people will not be held accountable by ethics or decency. The only things that will affect them will be lawsuits and possible criminal charges. Our own government is providing legal protection for the drug companies by allowing these drugs to continue to be promoted even though they are still considered “experimental” but that doesn’t mean the government can’t be held accountable, or the schools.
The criminal activity of our government is not limited to Covid. The coordination of crimes, lies, and corruption between the federal bureaucracies, the media, academia, and the elected ruling class is on a scale the far exceeds that of Ukraine, Russia, etc.
The United States Government is a direct threat to the stabilization of the world.
I agree, but I was focusing on a productive impeachment rather than mere virtue signaling. The rest could be brought under some kind of control with a strong president and Congress, or at least most of it could. Changing tax laws so universities with massive endowment funds are bearing more of the tax burden, prosecuting violations of anti-discrimination laws and helping fund schools at all levels that teach instead of indoctrinate would help.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) has said (Remdesivir) is the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat COVID-19.
“Remdesivir received Emergency Use Authorization in or around May of 2020, after being recommended by an NIH panel that contained nine individuals with financial ties to its creator, Gilead Sciences,” the lawsuit alleges. “It is very nearly the equivalent of a death sentence for a COVID patient, or a patient with real Pneumonia (as opposed to ‘covid pneumonia’).
Without receiving informed consent before giving remdesivir, the hospitals violated the Nuremberg Code, the lawsuit states, which criminalizes human experimentation performed without informed consent.
I’ve never understood why the Nuremberg Cold has not been invoked regarding any of the “vaccines” still being promoted by our government while it protects the drug companies from liabilities. Not a single recipient of any of the “vaccines” gave informed consent. However, those who did have information and did not want to take the experimental drugs were forced to take them anyway or lose their jobs or positions in the military.
The COVID-19 vaccine makers “knew of many of these risks and adverse events … and yet never formally disclosed them to patients,” says mRNA vaccine pioneer Dr. Robert Malone. “I think there are many in the legal profession that are looking at this and raising questions about whether, in fact, this does meet the criteria of fraud in terms of withholding information.”
It is literally impossible for the White House to be unaware of the evidence of vaccine ineffectiveness and danger, and to promote it so strongly—-and to use taxpayer money to pay the drug companies pumping it out—-is criminal.
