  • It’s unclear if the polls about Trump currently mean anything

    The polls have been in the news lately because Democrats are celebrating the lead Biden appears to hold while Republicans are worried that the Wuhan virus lockdowns and Black Lives Matters riots will harm Trump. Three news items, however, illustrate just how meaningless polls are in modern politics. The first item is the most worrying: According to an ABC News/Ipsos poll, 67% of Americans disapprove of what Trump has done regarding the Wuhan Virus. Yikes! Interestingly, the poll methodology does not say how the poll was weighted between Republicans and Democrats. It says only that it oversampled blacks and...

  • Retired Police Officers Launch Protect Our Police PAC to Elect Pro-Police Candidates

    A group of retired police officers announced on Wednesday the formation of a political action committee devoted to electing pro-police candidates to state and municipal offices. The launch of the PAC comes at a time when reaction to the tragic murder of George Floyd while in police custody has morphed into anti-police protests and calls for law enforcement agencies to be defunded and even eliminated. “Our Police are under attack!” the website said. “Radical anarchists, spineless left-wing politicians and the mainstream media are doing everything in their power to defund the police and dismantle the systems of law and order...
  • I'm in the 18% of white evangelicals who won't vote for Trump; Voting Should Be Tied to His Character, Not His Job Performance

    Christian Post ^ | 07/10/2020 | Chris Thurman
    After reading Leonardo Blair’s article in The Christian Post, “82% of white evangelicals would vote for Trump despite concerns about job performance: study,” I was disturbed by the fact that a majority of white evangelicals would still vote for Trump even though his job performance has been among the poorest in presidential history.As an evangelical who is both a conservative and a Republican, I’m writing to suggest that voting for Trump should be tied to his character, not his job performance. It is out of one’s character that presidents generate the policies they come up with and how well or...

    Vote-by-mail is the devil It’s valid for those of us on the right to be concerned about the fate of our beloved country, especially in this strangest of years. We are, after all, facing a host of problems: the coronavirus pandemic, the successful radical leftist indoctrination of two generations of public school kids, and the resulting lust for socialism on the American left resulting from that. There is also the fact that the idiot lefties are trying to ruin sports, entertainment, and even hamburgers, but we’ll have to save that for another day.When I survey the 2020 landscape trying to...
  • A turning tide? Public is not opening its pocketbooks to Democrats in the statehouse races

    Has the failure of the blue states finally bit the Democrats on the butt? We all know that President Trump is struggling in the polls. But campaign finance figures for statehouse races like these suggest plenty of trouble for Democrats. According to Breitbart's Matt Boyle: Americans significantly decreased contributions to Democrats running for state legislature seats in the second quarter as the Democrat Party has turned hard left, fundraising information announced this week shows. The lackluster performance by Democrats at the state level could have broader national implications. First off, state-level political trends sometimes forecast later looming national trends —...
  • Do all Black Lives Matter? (Wednesbray)

    I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. Psalm 138:2 (King James Version) The newest cliché from the KKKommunist Party is Defund the Police. Another poll tested phrase to make people go against their own best interest. They know they cannot get away with eliminate the Police, so they use a fuzzy phrase to make their followers agree and their enemies are forced into a corner since defunding does not sound as bad as end the police. The Three Pillars...

    Polls are now open in New Jersey and Delaware, where voters are largely expected to vote by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In New Jersey, the nearly all-mail primary is emerging as a test of the state’s ability to deliver a drama-free election in the face of critical tweets from President Donald Trump and state Republicans seeking federal election monitors. The COVID-19 outbreak has forced lawmakers and state officials to prepare state and county election organizations for a surge in remote voting and it also delayed the usual June primary by a month. While the deadline has passed for...
  • What If It’s All A Lie?

    From Kurt: This column was meant to run in the New York Times in connection with my new Regnery book The 21 Biggest Lies About Donald Trump (and You!), which comes out today and which you will love unless you hate America. It was meant as a warning to the NYT’s bubble-dwelling readership that the mainstream media’s lies are hiding the fact that America is very different than it seems from the perspective of Manhattan. Conveniently, the garbage media spent this weekend proving my point with its bold-faced lies about Trump’s masterful Mt. Rushmore speech. Thanks for playing yourselves, suckers.  This disconnect could lead...
  • Federal judge dismisses GOP case against Michigan redistricting commission

    A federal judge Monday dismissed a lawsuit by Michigan Republican groups seeking to block a new state redistricting commission. The ruling is the latest legal setback for Republicans, who earlier this year failed to win an injunction that would prevent the formation of the commission, which they contend is unconstitutional. The decision Monday — by U.S. District Court Judge Janet Neff, appointed by GOP President George W. Bush — is a blow to state Republicans who fought against the implementation of the redistricting commission, which was created in 2018.

    I've seen that narrative used repeatedly on more than one platform by Biden supporters and amazing how fast those talking points spread along with some others. They're basically saying the black guy Kanye is stealing votes from the white guy, Biden. Is that how this works now? It's low to say the least. Are those votes owned by Biden and/or Dems? Hardly. So if black people/black Dems vote for Kanye and not Biden will that mean they "ain't black"? And funny how they are turning on Kim, too, along with them pulling the meds card out - again. I'm not...

    Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 (King James Version) It is time to fight back. While the Barack shadow Whitehouse is organizing their tired old race riots it is time for the Tea Party to fight back under the radar. They have gotten too aged to have rallies where they can get beaten and mugged by the Obama thugs, so it is time to hit them where they least expect it which is at the ballot box. This is a head shot they are...

    NY Times ^ | May 17, 1988 | E J Dionne
    Michael S. Dukakis is capitalizing on deep public doubts about Vice President Bush and the Reagan Administration's handling of key issues and has emerged as the early favorite for the Presidential election in November, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll. Mr. Dukakis, the probable Democratic nominee, ran ahead of Mr. Bush, the almost certain Republican candidate, by 49 percent to 39 percent among 1,056 registered voters. The survey, conducted May 9-12, represented a significant advance for Mr. Dukakis since a Times/CBS News Poll in March when Mr. Bush had 46 percent and Mr. Dukakis had 45 percent....
  • The Man who Correctly Predicted President Trump’s 2016 Win Predicts President Trump has a 91% Chance of Being Reelected in 2020; His model has been correct since 1996

    Professor Helmut Norpoth from Stony Brook University told Lou Dobbs on August 16th, 2016, that Donald Trump had an 87% chance of winning the 2016 Presidential election. Professor Norpoth is a political science professor at Long IslandÂ’s Stoney Brook University.His model has been correct since 1996 on predicting the popular vote. We reported that his 2016 forecast rested on a model that tracks cyclical movements in American presidential elections. It goes back to 1828, when popular voting became widespread and the two-party system took hold. Over nearly two centuries, American presidential elections have exhibited a distinct cycle. This is...

    Reuters ^ | JULY 1, 2020 | Andrew Osborn, Vladimir Soldatkin
    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russians opened the door to Vladimir Putin staying in power until 2036 by voting overwhelmingly for constitutional changes that will allow him to run again for president twice, but critics said the outcome was falsified on an industrial scale. Official results published on Thursday, after 100% of ballots had been counted, showed that the former KGB officer who has ruled Russia for more than two decades as president or prime minister had easily won the right to run for two more six-year terms after the current one ends in 2024. That means Putin, 67, could rule until...

    President Trump had a great riff at his rally the other day in Phoenix. It was all about “abolish,” about how the Left wants to abolish the police, ICE, bail, even borders. Trump’s riff is effective because it is true. The Left has gone off the deep end, and they’re taking the Democrats with them. Well, there’s another “abolish” the president can add to his list, and it just might be enough to tip the scales this November. Joe Biden and the Democrats want to abolish America’s suburbs. Biden and his party have embraced yet another dream of the radical...
  • Immigration judges suing Trump administration over gag rule saying it violates free speech

    07/01/2020 4:26:18 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 3 replies ^ | 7/1/20 | Charles Davis
    Immigration is Donald Trump's reliable fallback for inflaming his base, the alleged harm posed by immigrants serving as the red meat in inflammatory tweets and executive orders. At the same time, the administration led by this outspoken president has gagged the judges tasked with enforcing its laws at the border, prompting a lawsuit from those judges and free-speech advocates alleging that the US Constitution has been trampled. In January 2020, immigration judges received word: under no circumstances could they opine, at a public event or on a call with a reporter, on what happens in their courtrooms — or what...

    At the present time the polls look bad for President Trump. How bad? Credible polls show him 10 points behind Biden, and struggling in key swing states as well as what should be easy states, like Georgia. His campaign seems listless at the moment, lacking a clear message or strategy for turning around his bad poll numbers. ThereÂ’s a story up on Fox News wondering whether Trump might drop out of the race. Is this story based on anything? Since we know Trump follows Fox, this might be a planted story in hopes that it will shake him up...
