  • Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs

    National Review ^ | 6-30-2020 | Stanley Kurtz
    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

    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...
  • THE STATE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE AS AT JULY 2020

    Powerline Blog ^ | 06/30/2020 | Steven Hayward
    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...

    The Democrats have thrown everything at Trump and nothing sticks. Every lie, attempted coup and rioting/looting scheme is still not working. They have attacked his aides, putting some in jail, and still he soldiers on. They have belittled his wife and his son, still he plows forward. They are now destroying businesses literally and with censorship for point of view, tearing down historical statues and threatening/assaulting people with almost no consequence. Biden is having virtually no rallies, and if he went to one, almost no one would attend. Trump, by comparison, has drawn several thousands every time he goes out....
  • Joe Biden courts evangelicals as polls show Trump slipping with voting bloc

    Christian Post ^ | 06/29/2020 | Leonardo Blair
    As polls show President Donald Trump’s support slipping among white evangelicals, the campaign for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden sees an opening for their candidate to pull away voters from the president’s most faithful voting bloc. “The battle for the soul of our nation deeply resonates with evangelicals,” John McCarthy, deputy national political director for the Biden Campaign, told David Brody, chief political analyst at the Christian Broadcasting Network, in a recent interview for Just the News. “They would be open to Joe Biden’s message as well.” Earlier this month, Robert P. Jones, chief executive of the Public Religion...

  • California Legislature Votes To Remove Anti-Discrimination Language From State Constitution

    The California legislature voted last week to strike anti-discrimination language from the State Constitution. In a 30-10 vote, the legislature passed the Assembly Constitutional Amendment No. 5 (ACA 5), which removes the words “The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin,” from California’s constitution, which were put in place in 1996 with Proposition 209.
  • One Judge Confirmed This Week

    This will be a weekly post. Count is now 198 judges confirmed 143 District Court judges 53 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices This week Cory Wilson was confirmed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals vacancy. For a long while this vacancy was in limbo since Mick Mulvaney convinced President Trump to appoint one of his cronies, Sul Ozerden, to the seat. Ozerden wasn't sufficiently conservative so kept getting votes delayed in committee, then Senators Hawley and Cruz refused to support him. The Ozerden nomination then quietly expired with the congressional session. Wilson was nominated, and is now...

    I apologize for the vanity post but wanted to take a minute to get Freepers to give a shout out for a candidate or incumbent they're supporting this fall? as many of you know, I'm a firm believer in EMILY (Early Money is Like Yeast). Yeah, I know. i ripped it off from the Democrat's PAC. But their point is correct. Early Money helps make a candidate viable - even in mid June. I want to give all Freepers a chance to give a major shout out for a candidate worthy of financial support this year. If you can, also...

    Washington Post (democracy dies with democrats) ^ | 6/25/20 | John Wagner, Robert Costa
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday called Attorney General William P. Barr “contemptible” and “a mess” but stopped short of backing calls from some Democrats for his impeachment, suggesting the best way to remove him is to elect Joe Biden president. “One hundred and thirty-one days from now, we will have the solution to many problems, one of them being Barr,” Pelosi said during a Washington Post Live interview. Her comments came a day after a high-profile House Judiciary Committee hearing at which Democrats accused Barr of politicizing the Justice Department, including by intervening in criminal cases to the...

    WASHINGTON — The Senate has approved the nomination of a Mississippi judge to a federal appeals court, the 200th federal judge named by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the Republican-controlled chamber. It’s the highest number of judicial nominees confirmed at this stage of a presidency in four decades. Cory Wilson was elevated to a seat on the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal despite Democratic objections that he has a record of working to undermine voting rights of African Americans and other minorities. Approval came on a nearly party-line, 52-48 vote Wednesday. Maine Sen. Susan Collins was...

    State Senator Chris Jacobs declared victory Tuesday night in the special election for New York's 27th congressional district, held to replace former Rep. Chris Collins (R) after his resignation following insider trading charges. NY-27 has been classified as the "most conservative district" in the state of New York, so there were plenty of eyes on this one. In his win, Jacobs defeated attorney Beth Parlato, Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw, and the lone Democratic candidate Nate McMurray. McMurray has yet to concede, but Jacobs’s team says there’s no way, even with absentee ballots, that the Democrat can make up...

    A pro-Trump super PAC is asking voters in a new television to consider whether former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is suffering from dementia. The Committee to Defend the President said it has invested $400,000 in the “Lost His Mind” ad that started airing Wednesday in Arizona and across social media. “Does Joe Biden have the mental capacity to keep America safe?” the narrator says in the ad, which features footage of Mr. Biden making meandering comments and stumbling through worlds. “Is Joe Biden making any sense? Does Joe Biden have dementia?” Mr. Biden, 77,...

    CARACAS, Venezuela — (AP) — Venezuela's Supreme Court, loyal to President Nicolás Maduro, on Tuesday ordered the takeover of two influential political parties opposed to the socialist government ahead of parliamentary elections expected this year. The court suspended and replaced the board of directors for the Justice First party a day after the same move against the Democratic Action, one of the nation's oldest and largest parties. It was part of a “necessary restructuring process,” the court said in rulings posted on Facebook. No legal action was taken, however, against Popular Will, the party of opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who...

    Broadcasters continue to find new ways to compromise meaningful coverage of President Trump and his reelection campaign. “Will CNN and MSNBC cover Donald Trump’s 2020 rallies in a way that allows the president to simply state his message to the American people? Or will they attempt to hide and censor him?” asked Scott Whitlock, associate editor of Newsbusters.org, a conservative press watchdog. "If Saturday’s Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma is any indicator, it seems likely the liberal outlets will choose the latter,” Mr. Whitlock wrote. “While Fox News played all 101 minutes — or 100% — of Trump’s campaign kickoff,...

    A protest organizer in South Carolina said future demonstrations coordinated by his advocacy group will canceled until further notice, after about a dozen people who participated in recent rallies tested positive for the novel coronavirus. "Some of our leaders, photographers and protestors have tested positive for COVID-19," said Lawrence Dishawn Nathaniel in a video announcement shared to Facebook on Sunday. Nathaniel, who founded nonprofit community organization People Demand Action, has helped lead protest efforts across South Carolina over the past month with an initiative called I Can't Breathe SC. Nathaniel went on to explain the new diagnosis numbers in greater...

Trump has almost 1.5 million watching on YouTube, well over 2 million on FB, and way over 85 million plus more according to Adweek watched, a massive number. At least 20k tonight inside, if not more, even with alleged Kpop kids election meddling with Chinese tech, provable outside rally intimidation of Trump supporters by others present, and their blocking of venue entrances. 2.) The protesters: we just want to be left alone so we've come to harass you tonight here in Tulsa. 3.) BLM has stated their...
