Stuck In The Past

After Republicans have surrendered on 2020, Democrats want to go back and relitigate the 2016 election!

The Biden State Department announced Thursday that it is offering a $10 million reward for any information that proves how Russian interests interfered in the 2016 election that resulted in Donald Trump’s election.

Now think about what that says about how the left fights compared to how we fight.

They spent the first two years of Trump’s administration undermining our democracy by constantly telling the American people that Donald Trump and Russia colluded together to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Major Democrats like Adam Schiff went on national TV shows Sunday after Sunday and knowingly lied. He said, “We have proof of collusion, and when we release it the American people will be shocked.” It was all a lie.

Not only did Trump not collude with Russia, Russians colluded with Hillary to smear Trump and weaken his administration. So, it was Hillary and the Democrats who colluded with a foreign enemy to take down a duly-elected president.

In 2020, we had an election with more irregularities and more mail-in voting than any time in our history. Laws were ignored. Rules were changed. There were bizarre pauses in ballot counting. There was massive censorship and suppression of real news, i.e., the Hunter Biden laptop.

Millions of Americans believe it was a corrupt election. Now two years later, virtually every Republican of consequence, certainly in the leadership, has been browbeaten into saying that there is no evidence of corruption.

And now this week, after Republicans have surrendered on 2020, Democrats want to go back and relitigate the 2016 election!

By the way, elements of the Biden Administration have said they are deeply concerned that Russia may be interfering in the 2022 election. Of course, there’s no proof offered. Why would they be saying that?

Well, if Democrats end up getting clobbered in November, and there’s no guarantee of that, I’ll guarantee you they will try to delegitimize this election by telling the American people that McConnell, McCarthy and the RNC colluded with Putin to take the Congress away from the Democrats because they are fighting Putin so hard in Ukraine!

Polling Propaganda

A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll finds that Democrats are leading in the generic congressional ballot question by four points. The poll also found these surprising figures: 16% of the public said abortion was their most important issue while 11% said inflation was their top concern.

If anyone in politics actually believes that more people are more concerned about abortion than inflation, they should go into another line of work.

But I want to point out something else that I am seeing in virtually every other poll as well. When pollsters ask people if abortion is an important issue to them and they say “yes,” the media say, “Look at that big number of people angry at the GOP/Supreme Court over abortion.”

I hope you can see through that.

The country is almost 50/50 on abortion. So, if 16% say abortion is their most important issue, it’s likely that half of that number includes people who are pro-life and who are upset that Biden and congressional Democrats are trying to force abortion on demand in every state in the country. Half are probably people who want them to do that.

But the reason the media spin the polls the way they are is because they know how easy it is to frighten Republicans.

They are trying to browbeat Republicans into running away from the Dobbs victory. They want Republicans to apologize for the Dobbs victory. And they want Republicans to only talk about the economy.

By the way, there’s a nugget in the latest Washington Post poll that should stiffen Republican spines.

The poll found a huge enthusiasm gap between pro-life and pro-abortion voters, with pro-life voters being 11 points more likely to vote than pro-abortion voters, and those who supported the Dobbs decision were 18-points more likely to vote than those who opposed it.

Biden Is Compromised

Thursday, the White House yet again refused to say whether Hunter Biden has fully divested his stake in a communist Chinese firm that paid him millions of dollars. Of course, by refusing to answer the question, they’re answering the question.

After everything that has happened, it appears as if the president’s son still has not fully extricated himself from communist Chinese companies while his father is dealing badly with an increasingly aggressive communist China.

Where’s The Fight?

Republicans swept the Congressional Baseball Game Thursday night 10-0. Too bad it wasn’t the election results!

This week, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Democrat Leader Schumer broke several deals they had made with House and Senate GOP leaders. I won’t bore you with the details of those deals.

But the result is that in this narrowly divided Congress, Joe Biden is now on his way to getting another $1 trillion in additional spending, while inflation is devastating the country.

During the coverage of Thursday’s baseball game, I noticed how virtually every Republican congressman went out of their way to say how the game proved how much both sides work together and get along.

Now why would any Republican congressman say that when Democrats are breaking deals and threatening to prosecute the last Republican president?

Republicans should have said, “We’re sick and tired of getting cheated. We’re going to clobber them tonight with our baseball bats, and we’re going to clobber them again in November with our votes!”

Apparently one of the Democrat players didn’t get the memo about bipartisanship. Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) flipped off the GOP team as she was walking back to her dugout.

Maybe Sanchez and Kevin McCarthy just need to hug it out. Right. Go ahead and keep talking about bipartisanship!

The left is whipping their base into a frenzy. Churches are being vandalized and crisis pregnancy centers are being firebombed. The left is creating an atmosphere conducive to violence, while Republicans are having fun at baseball games.

Do you remember the last time any Republican was upset and angry about what the left is doing to the country? Where is their emotion?!

Combatting CRT

The state of Oklahoma audited the Tulsa Public School District and found that critical race theory was still being taught in violation of state law. Officials also discovered graphic books in libraries being offered to young children.

Oklahoma Education Secretary Ryan Walters made a Facebook post about the content of the books, but Facebook removed it, claiming the content was too graphic!

Think about that. Woke social media censored the books because they violated their community standards, yet the books are in public school libraries for our children.

I’m pleased to report that the Oklahoma State Board of education just voted 4-to-2 to downgrade the Tulsa Public School district to “accreditation with warning.”

Education Secretary Walters told Fox News Friday morning that he is serious about getting this anti-American ideology out of the schools. “We’re the greatest country in the history of the world, and our kids need to know that.”

  • Twenty-two states are suing the Biden Administration to block its outrageous attempt to hold the federal school lunch program hostage to its radical transgender agenda.
  • In the wake of Joe Biden’s COVID infection, the state of Florida is calling on the Biden Administration to end oppressive vaccine mandates. Other states, businesses, medical associations, trade groups and veteran’s organizations should follow Florida’s lead.
  • Florida officials filed a complaint that could terminate the business license of a Miami bar that hosted “drag shows for children.” Other state officials should follow Florida’s lead.
