  • The GOP Mess in Florida, Brought to You by On the Job Training at the NRSC

    NRSC Chairman John Cornyn said today that Florida’s GOP Senate primary has been “a learning experience” for him. If we’ll remember back to last year, Cornyn’s NRSC recruited (then Republican) Governor Charlie Crist to challenge the already announced conservative darling Marco Rubio for the open Senate seat left by the departure of Mel Martinez. Of course Rubio didn’t need a challenger, and should have been allowed to run uninterrupted from Washington. Cornyn sees that wisdom now. “In this political environment it’s not necessarily helpful for candidates running in the states to have the national party chairman” endorse them. No joke....

    Dueling Protests Follow Suspension of Indiana Priest Fr. Theodore Rothrock: leftists 'serpents in the garden' CARMEL, Ind. ( - Protests and counterprotests are erupting over the suspension of a faithful Indiana cleric, days after his denunciation of radical leftist groups. On Sunday, supporters and critics of Fr. Theodore Rothrock faced off outside St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel. One contingent shouted "Black Lives Matter!" while the other cheered, "Go, Fr. Ted!" Father Rothrock was suspended last week after condemning anarchist groups. "Black Lives Matter, Antifa and the other nefarious acolytes of their persuasion are not the friends or allies we have been led to believe," he warned in his...

    On April 26, 2019, Indiana HB 1284 became Public Law 107. The bill was a major reform of firearm carry law in Indiana. One of the reforms was free five-year permits for the carry of handguns in Indiana, after 1 July, 2020. Most of the reforms went into effect immediately when the bill became law. They included: Law enforcement offices were required to provide a voter registration form whenever a person applied for a license to carry a handgun.People who justifiably defended themselves with force, in most instances, were granted immunity from a civil lawsuit. If the immunity defense was...

  • New York Times: America Is Too Broken to Fight the Coronavirus

    Graphs of the coronavirus curves in Britain, Canada, Germany and Italy look like mountains, with steep climbs up and then back down. The one for America shows a fast climb up to a plateau. For a while, the number of new cases in the U.S. was at least slowly declining. Now, according to The Times, it’s up a terrifying 22 percent over the last 14 days. As Politico reported on Monday, Italy’s coronavirus catastrophe once looked to Americans like a worst-case scenario. Today, it said, “America’s new per capita cases remain on par with Italy’s worst day — and show...

    In recent days, the media has taken to sounding the alarm bells over a “second wave” of coronavirus infections. Such panic is overblown. Thanks to the leadership of President Trump and the courage and compassion of the American people, our public health system is far stronger than it was four months ago, and we are winning the fight against the invisible enemy.While talk of an increase in cases dominates cable news coverage, more than half of states are actually seeing cases decline or remain stable. Every state, territory and major metropolitan area, with the exception of three, have positive...

    The Democratic Party’s veepstakes may have narrowed down to two top contenders. Out of all the potential running mates thought to be on Joe Biden’s shortlist, only two — California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — spoke at the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention, which ended Saturday. “These things don’t happen by accident,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Post. “I think those two are getting an audition in Texas.”

    VIDEO Just as the Jacobins of the French Revolution ended up eating their own including Danton and Robespierre, we are now seeing the Jacobin Left in America doing the same. The latest example was when the the squishy liberal mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, was just denounced and booed because he would not agree to defunding the police department which, of course, would mean its abolition. So the question has to be asked, how long before the Jacobin Left demand the removal of the author of the 1994 crime bill, Joe Biden, from the Democrat ticket? If Frey is...

    May 27, 2020 The Honorable Donald J. Trump President of the United States The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington, DC 20500 Dear President Trump, We write today to urge you to consider the important role non-immigrant temporary visa programs will play in aiding post-pandemic economic recovery in America. Any changes to these programs should be very narrowly tailored to prevent additional damage to the already struggling American small businesses who rely on the assistance made possible through these visas. The coronavirus pandemic has brought devastating loss of life and livelihood across our country. As we begin to reopen,...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana’s first election to feature widespread mail-in balloting concluded Tuesday with long lines in Indianapolis delaying the closure of in-person voting locations. Nearly 550,000 voters requested mail-in ballots - more than 10 times the number cast during the 2016 primary - after coronavirus concerns prompted officials to delay the primary by four weeks from its original May 5 date. Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden easily won Indiana's delegates in their respective primaries. Indianapolis voters faced waits of an hour or more at several voting locations throughout the day as Marion County had 22...

    “Though the change is small, it could be an indication that many believe Warren would not positively contribute to winning swing voters,” said Alex Donohue, analysts for U.S. Bookies. “It’s also worth noting that choosing other top candidates, such as [Senators] Kamala Harris or Amy Klobuchar, would not have this negative effect on Biden’s chances, and his odds would remain 13/10.”

    Before government shut the nation down, Americans ate half their meals outside home. The farmers who served restaurants and cafeterias are dumping meat, veggies, and milk. And it's going to get worse. America’s food system is cracking.People are still eating, farmers are still farming, and grocery stores are still open, but in areas around the country, shoppers looking for meat, milk, and other products find empty shelves and limits on what they can purchase — all while farmers from coast to coast are forced to dump milk, plow up vegetables, and euthanize livestock. So what’s happening, and why?There isn’t a...

    Washington (CNN) Vice President Mike Pence said he would be "happy" to see President Donald Trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn back in the administration years after Trump fired him for lying about his contacts with Russia. **SNIP** During a pre-taped interview with Axios published Sunday, Pence was asked about bringing Flynn back into the Trump administration. The President said in April that he would consider bringing back Flynn. "I think Gen. Michael Flynn is an American patriot, he served this country with great distinction," Pence said in an excerpt of the interview. "And for my part, I'd be...
  • Ted Cruz Compares Joe Scarborough To A ‘Teenage Girl Throwing Her Panties At The Latest Boy Band’

    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz fired back Friday at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, comparing the “Morning Joe” host to a “teenage girl throwing her panties at the latest boy band.” The exchange began when Scarborough, along with a number of others, shared a deceptively-edited video of Vice President Mike Pence from late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel. The video made it appear as though Pence was pretending to deliver medical supplies into a Virginia nursing home while he really only carried empty boxes — but Pence actually did take part in delivering the supplies.

    Things got pretty ugly on Twitter between Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas., and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough over their evolving attitudes toward President Trump. The feud began after Scarborough shared a now-debunked video originally created by Jimmy Kimmel depicting Vice President Mike Pence carrying "empty" boxes of PPE into a hospital supposedly for just a photo-op. However, fuller footage from C-SPAN showed Pence helping out with full boxes of PPE and later jokingly asked that the remaining boxes, which were empty, could be used "just for the camera." Scarborough shared the video, not knowing that Twitter labeled it as "manipulated media,"...

    A viral clip from comedian Jimmy Kimmel was edited to remove some important context. On his Thursday night show, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel used a clip of Pence at the nursing home to suggest there was nothing inside the boxes. "Since it was going so well and also because he didn't realize he had a mic on, Magic Mike decided to keep it going," said Kimmel. "Listen in closely here." Kimmel then cut to video showing the vice president inquiring about the last boxes in the van before being told they were empty. "Well, can I carry the empty ones?...
