For the second time in recent months, Paul Pelosi is in trouble because he got hammered.

It is a very strange story – supposedly, this weirdo in his underwear managed to gain access to the Pelosi’s manse in a heavily guarded area of San Francisco…nobody saw the guy in his underwear coming in! Then both underwear-guy and Paul got hammers…and then it gets a little foggy. Police reports indicate that Paul called about the man but said he was waiting for Nancy to get home and then the police show up and only then does underwear-guy attack…supposedly severely injuring Paul.

The Capitol Police have been called in…which makes no sense as they lack any jurisdiction…but if you want to control the investigation, having a police force tied to your office is really cool.

Gay lover spat? Mere political set up so they can blame the GOP? Who the heck knows.

Elon Musk owns Twitter – so far, nothing much has changed except for one thing: for the first time since I created my account in 2015 the things Twitter suggest to me are relevant. And I mean it: not once in the past 7+ years has a Twitter suggestion been anything remotely interesting to me. And not just the fact that for politics they’re always pushing liberals my way…for sports I get soccer, which is just so similar to hockey, I guess. For food I get Vegan stuff…which might go well with my pot roast. I get super-hero movies suggested when I’m more of a bio-pic/war drama kind of guy. On and on like that – and all wasted effort as I’ve never clicked a suggested link. Until today: when miracle of miracles, a video from Kari Lake was suggested to me. If this is all Elon does, then it is worth it.

Now, as for the permanently banned: Musk is saying that is under review. Already Corporate America is warning they’ll pull advertising if Trump’s account is restored. I doubt that Musk would really care. The only account everyone is saying must be restored is Gay Patriot’s. He went through about a score of them before he gave up. We want his original account back – Twitter just isn’t the same without his acid takes on the issues of the day.

The liberal melt-down about it has been wonderful, as you might expect. And with the fear of banning fading, people are back to their old tricks…one of the MSMers reporting from Twitter headquarters got trolled by two people claiming to be fired Twitter employees. Their names? Ligma and Johnson (I’ll give you a minute).

What has been most funny is the liberal insistence that Musk breaking the shackles of Twitter censorship is fascism. I’m deadly serious here: that is exactly what they’re calling it. Lots of them are saying they are leaving but I doubt that will happen, or last long for those who do. For people who like fast-paced, topical social media, Twitter is king. It really is a clever system when you get down to it. Truth Social and others do ok at it, but even as they improve their product, they simply can’t get around Twitter’s head start in users. Musk says it will become part of a comprehensive social media platform – which may or may not wind up being a good thing, but as he’s taking it private, only he gets to say what will be what.

The Democrats latest hopium is early voting numbers out of Clark County, Nevada. The nutshell: Democrats are doing well with mail-in votes and this presages a Democrat resurgence in front of November 8th. Two flaws in the theory: Clark County turnout is down massively…the other bit is that rural Nevada hasn’t reported a single early vote. So, the Democrat stronghold is depressed and we don’t even know what the most GOP part of the State looks like.

The Oz-Fetterman debate seems to have finished off Fetterman. In every poll taken since the debate, Oz has been in the lead. The official word is that ticket splitters will award Oz the Senate seat and the Democrat the governorship. The Official Narrative being that the GOP candidate there is just too extreme. I guess we’ll find out. But Oz was “too extreme” until a couple days ago. Meanwhile, Democrats are now pouring resources into New Hampshire…which has been officially in the bag for the Democrats since June or so. I think NH and WA will be the GOP upsets. But, we’ll see!

Oh, and Democrats: the GOP looks certain to win at least 52 Senate seats. Could go as high as 55 if they get the breaks. But, as they say, there’s more! In the 2024 cycle Democrats will be defending seats in (are you ready?) Montana, Nevada, Arizona, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. Yes, as a matter of fact, I am pointing and laughing at you. That is 10 – count ’em, ten – vulnerable Senate seats. But, don’t feel too bad…after all the GOP will be backs-to-the-wall defending seats in Alabama and Wyoming.

To make it clear to you: you’re screwed. If you’re lucky then by 2025 you’ll be looking at a Senate which only has 60 GOP Senators. It could be as high as 65.

And here’s what will really grind your gears: if you hadn’t cheated to win in 2020, then this year you’d probably be getting a net-gain of 4 and in 2024 your loses probably would have been in the 3-5 range.

Was Trump really that bad?

    Democrats have gone full scorched earth and they will suffer the consequences next week. I too predict that Republicans will win the governor seat in NY, MI, and OR which will shock people, and that they pick up at least 3 seats in the Senate, and of course win the House. Here’s the thing though, they had better be America first conservative candidates or they will be back on the street in just a few years. No more RINO’s.

    Here in AZ they are running commercials where Arizona “republicans” are calling Lake too extreme on abortion and that she’s an “election denier” – and I have some news for those “republicans” – that “apologetic” brand of the Republican party is over with. Done. We are on the offense now. What Democrats have done to our country, is UNFORGIVABLE.

    Another thing that is also unforgivable with Democrats is that they have NO sense of humor. These people are insufferably boring and incompetent.

    Lee Zeldin was just interviewed on Fox and first of all, what an impressive guy. He’s been attacked twice and the media largely ignored both. Secondly he said when speaking of NY city – “I live anywhere from 1 hour to 10 days away from the City depending on traffic” – that’s hilarious.

    • Retired Spook October 29, 2022 / 10:28 am

      The main reason Liberal humor, especially political humor, falls flat is that they don’t understand that an element of truth is a necessary ingredient to good humor. Democrat humor almost always involves making something up about Republicans and then making fun of it. The cartoon Doonesbury is a good example. The vast majority of Democrat jokes about Trump have absolutely no basis in fact. Even Snopes has recognized this

        I think we as Republicans need to take some of the blame for the constant reelection of Democrats. I have always felt that a long-term relentless campaign of shoving Dem failures up their noses would have a good effect.

        I have never understood why we haven’t invested in billboards, for example, so people can see a giant message of gas prices from two years ago next to gas prices of today with the message THANK YOU BIDEN VOTERS.

        Or pictures of terrorists in Afghanistan celebrating the gift of billions of dollars of weaponry they can use against us, with the same message.

        This theme, repeated mercilessly over and over again, is the only way to get it through to these people that we aren’t blaming Biden, because THEY put him in office.

      • Mark Noonan October 29, 2022 / 2:04 pm

        I’m on that page, as well. You try. You can’t win unless you try. Essentially, each party can tap into endless amounts of money; and non-party groups can tap into even larger amounts of dark money (Act Blue has been doing it for years for the Democrats). No, we don’t put our best effort into places like Los Angeles…but put something into it. With some resources, at least we’re on the ground…and eventually leaders in the localities will step up. I’m sure in LA there are lots of small business owners (likely Latino or Asian) who are fed up with crime, collapsing schools and deteriorating infrastructure…but, what can they do? The only political party in town are the Democrats, who don’t care. If they could see the GOP there, some of them would eventually come knocking and offer themselves as candidates. This would be a 20 year effort, of course…but the payoff is immense.

        We should be everywhere, all the time – no race uncontested. Put someone there as an alternative. And, yes, I realize that our candidates in places like California and Massachusetts will of necessity be pretty far left, especially on social issues, but the goal isn’t uniformity of thought but to drive the Democrats out of power. They are both corrupt and stupid and they have to go.

Nobody really knows what will happen, of course – but Ralston out here in Nevada (liberal but generally very good at number crunching) is saying that unless things turn around big for Democrats, they’re in trouble. We could be starting to see a cascade preference – as more people come to see that voting GOP is acceptable in 2022, ever more people will decide to vote GOP.

        Many years ago the unwitting guru of my journey into the light, a conservative talk show host named Mike Rosen, used to lecture that “party trumps person” whenever someone would smugly announce the supposedly enlightened philosophy of ignoring party affiliation and just voting for “the best person”.

        He explained that a party majority is very important, as it dictates committee appointments, control over which bills get sent to the floor for votes, etc. So a weak Republican is better than a “moderate” Democrat when it comes to sorting out which party has the most authority in Congress.

    In a press release, the USPS explained that the collection bins have become hot spots for criminals looking to steal identities or checks, especially at specific times and on specific days. The agency stated, “The biggest variable enticing these criminals to steal are customers depositing mail into blue collection boxes after the last collection of the day or during Sundays and federal holidays.”

    So what should customers do? The USPS advises, “If customers simply used retail service or inside wall drop slots to send their U.S. Mail, instead of depositing it to sit outside overnight or through the weekend, blue collection boxes would not be as enticing after business hours to mail thieves for identity theft and check-washing schemes.”

    So your regular mail is not safe in unsupervised collection boxes but your election ballots are?

Now, emotionally stunted, morally superior children are in control of the Democrat Party and weak ass Republicans are afraid to upset them.

    Who the heck knows, Mark! From the Federal Criminal Complaint:

    “DEPAPE stated that he was going to hold Nancy hostage and talk to yer. If Nancy were to tell DEPAPE the “truth,” he would let her go, and if she “lied,” he was going to break “her kneecaps.” DEPAPE was certain that Nancy would not have told the “truth.” In the course of the interview, DEPAPE articulated he viewed Nancy as the “leader of the pack” of lies told by the Democratic Party. DEPAPE also later explained that by breaking Nancy’s kneecaps, she would have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other Members of Congress there were consequences to actions. DEPAPE also explained generally that he wanted to use Nancy to our another individual to DEPAPE.

    “DEPAPE explained that he did not leave after Pelosi’s call to 9-1-1- because, much like the American founding fathers with the British, he was fighting against tyranny without the option of surrender. DEPAPE reiterated this sentiment elsewhere in the interview.”

    So much for your conspiracy theories, Mark.

        “The idea that Pelosi’s attacker was in his underwear caught fire because a Fox News clip claiming as much went viral on Twitter. But Fox News was just parroting what another news outlet KTVU, had published. The news article erroneously reported that Pelosi’s attacker was in his underwear but was corrected and now reads, “CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated what clothing the suspect was wearing when officers found him.”

        Which is entirely unreliable unless confirmed by an outside source. You really have to keep up. For us, “FBI Report” and “National Enquirer Story” is “same/same”, with the benefit of the doubt given to the Enquirer.

        As an aside, more reason for us to doubt the FBI – got revealed today that it was the FBI who led the charge in getting the social media companies to suppress the Hunter laptop story. Something 100% true, which the FBI had for a year before it got out, and the FBI’s reaction to the story breaking was to suppress it via cooperative corporations. There is a word, by the way, which describes Big Corporation and Big Government working together, Casper. Do you know the word?

        But getting back to the Pelosi story – whatever happened what most certainly didn’t happen was an assassination attempt by a MAGA person. Whatever else the screwball was on about, MAGA wasn’t it. And no amount of false Narratives by the MSM will change that. Personally, I think it was a Grindr meeting that went wrong – but, we’ll find out (after the election: they won’t let anything like a fact get out before that).

        Meanwhile a MAGA, FOX, Trump, groomed supporter did his best to assassinate the Speaker of the House and ended up assaulting her husband. Can you imagine how upset the MAGA crowd would be if someone broke into Mara lago and beat up Melania?

        Casper, this is why you were such a terrible teacher. You simply cannot process information, and on top of that your internal filters generate such vile garbage it stinks up the place.

        The Mueller report did NOT document Russian collusion with Trump or anyone in his campaign. Neither did the Senate Intelligence Committee. There was an effort by Russia to influence the election, which they have done in every election for years. But no “collusion”.

        Well, no collusion between Trump and any Russians. Hillary did collude with a Russian agent to help cobble together the bogus fantasy she and the DNC paid for in a pathetic effort to smear Trump, and depending on how far you want to stretch associations then the FBI colluded with Russia to lie to the FISA Court to get warrants to spy on Trump and his associates.

        When did you start using MAGA as a pejorative? It’s pretty significant, I think, to see you and your fellow travelers claiming Make America Great Again is something to be ashamed of.

        Not surprising, just significant.

        casper, just when did you take that final step to demeaning the concept of wanting America to be great again? Was this always part of your consciousness, or have you just slid farther and farther to the Left as you age?

        What is the source of the word “groomed” as you use it? Where did you see it used in an effort to shift it and its connotations away from the pedophilia and sexualization of children represented by your party, to simply mean “influenced”?

        You also happily illustrate why you were such a terrible teacher. You simply cannot process information accurately. The Mueller report did not confirm that anyone associated with Trump ever “colluded” with Russia, and neither did the Senate report. What was found was Russian efforts to influence the election, which was nothing new—they have been doing that for years.

        The only “collusion” was with Hillary when she hired a Russian agent to help cobble together a strange fantasy to try to smear Trump, when she and the DNC paid not only a Russian agent but a British one to help them rig the election. And depending on how many degrees of separation you accept, then the FBI colluded with Russia when FBI agents committed perjury to the FISA court, testifying to the accuracy of the bogus report.

        If that was his best effort, he’s not very good at this assassination thing. He hung around for a while, popped a guy in the head who was NOT the Speaker of the House, stopped the attack to let the guy call the police, and in general seemed like a pretty unskilled assassin.

        And didn’t he say he didn’t want to kill Nancy, just cripple her? More of that poor processing of information from casper, but then he is aligned with the political movement that freely redefines words at will so maybe now a goal of hurting someone is the same as trying his best to kill her, even when she wasn’t even in the house.

        Without being questioned, DePape told medics and officers at the scene that he was “sick of the insane [expletive] level of lies coming out of Washington, D.C.,” according to the court filing.

        “I didn’t really want to hurt him, but you know this was a suicide mission. I’m not going to stand here and do nothing even if it cost me my life,” DePape allegedly said.

        DePape is alleged to have told Paul Pelosi he “has other targets,” the court filing says. Later when the police asked him if he had any other plans, DePape allegedly “named several targets,” including a local professor and “several prominent and state and federal politicians” and their relatives.

        The court document did not name any potential targets.

        DePape allegedly told the police he intended to hold the House speaker hostage and interrogate her.

        “If Speaker Pelosi lied to him, he intended to break her kneecaps,” Macbeth wrote.

        DePape evidently did not strike Pelosi until the police arrived.

        Eventually, Paul Pelosi called 911. But before the police arrived, Paul Pelosi “reached out and put his hand” on the handle of the hammer, over his fear that DePape would strike him with it.

        Two police officers arrived and, seeing both with their hands on the handle of the hammer, one of the officers ordered DePape to drop it, but he did not comply.

        DePape then allegedly “wrenched the hammer away” from Paul Pelosi, stepped back, and lunged at him, “striking Mr. Pelosi in the head at full force with the hammer.”

        “The officers rushed into the house, tackled Defendant, and disarmed him,” the court filing says.

    Remember when Lee Zeldin was almost stabbed on stage? I do. But I don’t remember any Democrat having to apologize for it.

    Remember when Obama called Russia a “regional power” and nothing to be concerned about in the 2012 debate with Romney? I do. Weird how in just 10 short years, Russia is now the cause of all the worlds problems.

    We need smarter people in office, and definitely smarter people voting.
