  • Beware the “Anger Manager” – Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan Says He Would Accept House Speaker Role

    My dearest friends, as much as I do not want to accept certain things, this one is critical to accept. Jim Jordan has shown over time that he is simply a purposefully placed “anger manager” on behalf of the Professionally Republican wing of the administrative state.Perhaps we lost him before the 2020 election, when the “six ways to Sunday” group fired a shot across his bow with the issues about “widespread sexual abuse in OSU’s wrestling program.” The timing seems to fit with the overall dynamic and how the intelligence apparatus operates. Regardless of whether that was the inflection point,...

    Republican U.S. Sen Lindsey Graham has something in common with President Joe Biden: increasing unpopularity among South Carolinians, according to a new poll. When asked how satisfied they were with the way Graham and Biden are handling their jobs in Washington, 30% of South Carolina voters polled say they approve Graham’s performance, compared to 29% for Biden, according to the latest Winthrop University Poll. Since Winthrop’s last poll in May, Graham’s and Biden’s approval ratings have dipped by 2% and 1%, respectively. “Graham’s approval ratings overall are nearly as bad as those for President Biden,” said the poll’s director, Scott...
  • White House: Ukraine War Will Never End

    10/04/2023 4:52:23 PM PDT · by davikkm · 101 replies
    The US seems to have backed off of the claim that they are going to invade Crimea. Apparently, there are new victory terms, but they are a secret. After the fake 2024 election, the government will claim it has a mandate to start World War III against Russia. This is probably something people should be preparing for. Fun fact: Trump says it’s not our problem and a border dispute in the former USSR doesn’t matter. In fact, we know it doesn’t matter, because another border dispute in the former USSR was solved last week in the most brutal and inhume...
  • SWAMP FIGHTING BACK: McConnell Says House Should Scrap ‘Motion to Vacate’ Rule, Claims It Makes Speaker’s Job ‘Impossible (VIDEO)

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has called on his fellow Republicans in the House of Representatives to abolish the rule that allows a single member to file a “motion to vacate the chair,” claiming that it makes the Speaker’s job “near impossible.” snip “I’d like to start by thanking Speaker McCarthy for his service. We had a great personal relationship trying to lead two very different parts of the American government. I think he has much to be proud of. We avoided a government shutdown. We did the inevitable with regard to the debt ceiling,” said McConnell.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had positive things to say today about Scalise and Jordan when asked about their respective speaker bids, but he stopped short of saying who he would prefer to see in the top House post. "I know both of those guys," DeSantis, a Republican presidential candidate, said of his former House colleagues. "They’re both good guys." In his remarks to reporters at an event in Greenville, South Carolina, DeSantis spoke in broad terms about what the next speaker needs to do. "You can’t just say, continue business as usual. You got to be somebody that understands we...

    [AG] Merrick B. Garland is the public face of the government’s unprecedented effort to identify, arrest, and prosecute those connected to the Jan. 6, 2021 protest at the Capitol. But the person handling the day-to-day management of the one of the largest and most politically freighted efforts in the history of American law enforcement has largely flown under the radar: Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for [DC]. [snip] The political nature of the [Jan6] prosecutions is illustrated by the long partisan history of Graves and his wife, Fatima Goss Graves. According to documents on file with the U.S. Senate, Matthew...

    First they came for the top 1%. Now they’re aiming for the next 4% down. How long before socialists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez come for you? The congresswoman and her fellow far-lefties are now demanding new tax hikes on not just the top 1%, but the top 5% of New York earners — meaning tax filers making as little as $250,000 a year, as the Empire Center’s Tim Hoefer notes in the Wall Street Journal. For couples, that’s a mere $127,000 each — roping in, for starters, more than 168,000 New York state and local government employees, including many school...

The incident was ruled as a justified shooting after bodycam footage showed Eddie Irizarry producing a weapon and pointing it at officers during the stop. The weapon turned out to be a knife, not a gun.A swarm of criminals used the dismissal as a pretext to smash and loot Apple, Foot Locker, and Lululemon stores along with many other businesses during the...

Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) from the role for the first time in American history.Trump, who is currently sitting in court for his New York fraud case, spoke to reporters outside of the courtroom where he agreed that he could step in to help the Republican Party if needed. The speaker of the House does not need to be a sitting representative in order to serve."A lot of people...

    Florida will now execute child rapists. Of course, the media says this is "controversial." From News 4 in Jacksonville: A number of new laws are now in effect, as of Sunday. Arguably the most controversial centers around changes to Florida's death penalty. Child rapists can now face execution for their crimes. The law specifically pertains to child victims under the age of 12. RAPING KIDS UNDER 12. That's what we're talking about here. Executing people who would violate children in such a horrific way is considered "controversial." Higher courts have already said imposing death sentences in these types of cases...

    Epoch Times ^ | 10/3/2023 | Joseph M. Hanneman
    The evidence-tampering statute being used by the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute hundreds of Jan. 6 defendants is unconstitutionally broad, interferes with First Amendment free speech, and has left prosecutors with “unbridled, standardless discretion to effectively make up their own law,” a new Supreme Court filing argues. The High Court is considering whether to take up a challenge to the use of the law (pdf) brought by Jan. 6 defendant Edward Jacob Lang, 28, of New York. Mr. Lang, at least 317 other defendants, and former President Donald Trump have been charged with corruptly obstructing an official proceeding: the...

    PJ Media ^ | 10/04/2023 | Paula Bolyard
    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) successfully led a coup against now-former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday. He managed to eke out a “win” by rallying the entire Democratic caucus and eight Republicans to oust him. It’s the first time that has happened in U.S. history. And it’s a total clown show. Not only does it distract from the already tense budget negotiations, but it makes a laughingstock of the GOP—and the U.S.—and gives Democrats even more leverage to push through their radical policies. Gaetz got a win, but at what cost? Sure, he’ll raise a lot of campaign money from...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/04/2023 | Andrea Widburg
    Republicans are in mourning: Matt Gaetz, the irresponsible renegade with the pointed chin, has ousted Kevin McCarthy, and America is racing to Armageddon. There’s a possibility the Republicans are right. After all, Democrats helped push McCarthy out, which can mean only nefarious things. However, there’s also a chance that they’re very, very wrong and that this is the kick in the pants Republicans need to understand that they had better start choosing America over “collegiality,” which means globalism. To appreciate what I’m going to write, you must know where I’m coming from: I am a registered Republican because we have...
