    With a potential rematch of Donald Trump versus Joe Biden, advertising spending is expected to hit records for the 2024 election cycle.This could be bad news for the Republican National Committee, which has reported lower political donations.What Happened: Donald Trump leads many national polls ahead of President Joe Biden and has a commanding lead over his Republican competition for the GOP nomination for the presidential election in polls.The Republican National Committee might not be able to help Trump or other candidates out as much as they have in recent elections, based on the size of its current war chest.According to...
  • Tucker Carlson and Steve Bannon Discuss What Happens Within a Democracy When Voting No Longer Works

    Tucker Carlson and Steve Bannon have an interesting conversation about what happens within “Democratic” nations when the process of voting no longer generates the changes that are demanded by the citizens.When elected officials put themselves in a position to stand above the citizens of the country, things start to get very unsustainable. The recent events in Ireland show what happens when the citizens finally say enough is enough.
  • 54 Bipartisan Lawmakers Urge Speaker Johnson Not to Slip Deep State Surveillance Authorization in Defense Bill

    Breitbart ^ | 11/29/23 | Sean Moran
    Fifty-four House lawmakers, Democrat and Republican, conservative and progressive, called on House Speaker Mike Johnson Wednesday not to extend a controversial deep state surveillance law in a defense bill. Reps. Warren Davidson (R-OH) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), two skeptics of government surveillance, spearheaded the letter, which comes weeks before the year-end deadline of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Section 702 is a law that allows intelligence agencies to collect communications of targeted foreigners. It also may lead to targeted surveillance of Americans’ private communications, which privacy advocates consider a run around the Fourth Amendment’s requirement for...

    The Democrats and the media have long maintained that the 2020 election was “the most secure election in U.S. history,” but, according to court documents, the former general registrar of Prince William County, Va., who was indicted on corruption charges last year, is alleged to have "changed election results" in the 2020 election. "In a county where President Joe Biden received 54% of the vote in the 2020 presidential election to former President Donald Trump's 44%, an election official at the time allegedly 'altered election results"' in the state's reporting system, leading to three grand jury indictments last year,” reports...

    The Hill ^ | 11/29/23 | Alexander Bolton
    Former President Trump is creating new political headaches for Republicans locked in a highly competitive battle to win back the Senate majority by making extreme statements on health care, immigration and other issues unlikely to play well with swing voters in key states. Trump shook up Republicans on Capitol Hill over the weekend by declaring that if elected president he would make another run at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. The comments posted on Trump’s media platform, Truth Social, caught GOP lawmakers off guard because they haven’t had any serious policy discussions recently about getting rid of the...
  • When Peter Antonacci was stricken in governor’s office he lay in hallway 24 minutes before anyone noticed (New Report regarding 2022 death of Florida’s Office of Election Crimes and Security DIrector Peter Antonacci)

    Florida Bulldog ^ | November 26, 2023 | Dan Christensen
    Peter Antonacci, Gov. Ron DeSantis’s handpicked choice last year to lead the state’s controversial new elections fraud office, collapsed and died in a hallway in the governor’s office moments after “abruptly” leaving a contentious meeting on Sept. 23, 2022. That Antonacci, 74, was stricken in the governor’s office was kept secret at the time. Instead, authorities only said he died while at work in the Capitol building, of which the governor’s office is a part. Florida Department of Law Enforcement records released to Florida Bulldog also say Antonacci lay dead or dying on the hallway floor of the governor’s office...
  • How Christie could help Haley if he dropped out (he won't)

    Washington Post ^ | 11/27/23 | Aaron Blake
    A battery of recent New Hampshire polls has shown Nikki Haley and Chris Christie running second and third, respectively, in a state that could prove vital for what’s left of the GOP effort to stop Donald Trump. This has led to some predictable chatter about Christie, the former New Jersey governor, dropping out in service of consolidating the anti-Trump vote, given he has long made clear that stopping Trump is high on his list of motivations. Christie, predictably, wants no part of such speculation.

    The Atlantic ^ | 11/27/23 | Noah Rosenblum
    This Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear a case that poses the most direct challenge yet to the legitimacy of the modern federal government. The right-wing legal movement’s target is the “administrative state”—the agencies and institutions that set standards for safety in the workplace, limit environmental hazards and damage, and impose rules on financial markets to ensure their stability and basic fairness, among many other important things. The case, Securities and Exchange Commission v. Jarkesy, threatens all of that. Terrifyingly, this gambit might succeed. snip Were Jarkesy to win, he would help achieve what the conservative legal movement’s members have...

    The Pioneer ^ | Sunday, November 26, 2023 | Manan Dwivedi
    Opinion Vivek Ramaswamy’s political narrative revolves around his aspiration for the American Presidency. Advocating anti-woke sentiments, he challenges the prevailing elitist culture, distinguishing himself as an entrepreneurial outsider. His stance on issues like immigration, Ukraine, and the Israel-Palestine conflict showcases a pragmatic approach, emphasising the need for strategic balance and national interest. If all the scenarios align favorably for him, it can be supposed, in the context of the US elections, that individuals like Vivek Ramaswamy should be elected as the most powerful person on Earth-namely, to the American Presidency. He is young, energetic, and an Ivy League product, with...

    Was it inevitable, or are deep-pocketed Republican campaign donors simply reading the writing on the wall? Some mega-donors who backed Donald Trump's presidential campaigns in 2016 and 2020 and then stopped donating for various reasons, and in some instances called on him to exit the 2024 race, are returning to the fold — with oodles of cash. Why? Because cash loves a winner, come hell or high water. So here's the thing: With less than two months to go until the Iowa caucus, Trump and his avid backers are kicking their fundraising efforts into high gear like nobody's business —...

    China may have influenced local and federal political leadership races in Canada— and it's only a matter of time before the Communist country does the same to the U.S. According to a classified report from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), an unspecified leadership candidate for a provincial political party met with Chinese agents at a Chinese consulate in 2022 to secure their support.The top secret document refers to the candidate as "CA3". It details how an Oct. 31, 2022, CSIS "Intelligence Assessment" explored how communist Chinese agents are used to influence leaders of Canadian political parties at the...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 11/26/23 | Joe Garofoli
    There’s a word that isn’t often heard, much less bragged about, at gatherings of the top Democrats in California. And that word is “centrist.” But some California Democrats running in some of the most important House races in the country are dropping the “c” word. Sure, some Democrats typically move a little toward the center in the general election if they’re facing a more moderate Republican. But four prominent House candidates are talking up their moderate qualities now, roughly three months before voters start casting ballots in the March 5 primary. The California Democratic Party has endorsed all four, a...

    ATLANTA – Georgia Democrats scored minimal gains in the General Assembly in last year’s elections – and even lost one congressional seat – despite population growth during the last decade among Blacks, who tend to vote for Democrats. But Democratic prospects likely will look a lot better after lawmakers gather under the Gold Dome for a special session starting Wednesday and redraw the state’s legislative and congressional lines on the orders of a federal judge appointed by then-President Barack Obama. “(Republican incumbents are) either going to end up in districts highly likely to elect a Democrat or in a district...

    Ahead of the highly-anticipated 2024 presidential election, more than 23 million immigrants to the United States who now have naturalized American citizenship are eligible to cast ballots, new analysis reveals. The left-wing American Immigration Council released the analysis recently, giving a glimpse into the electoral power that the nation’s annual importation of more than a million legal immigrants has given to naturalized citizens.

    Now that state legislators have adjourned two months early for the year, the Michigan primary election will be held on February 27, 2024, putting the Republican primary in violation of Republican National Convention (RNC) rules so that Michigan delegates will no longer be counted towards the winner of the Republican National Convention. To stem a competition between states to move the primaries earlier and earlier, the RNC established a longstanding rule that only New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina can hold their primaries prior to March 1, as those states have done so for decades. The penalty set by...

    In yet another sign of a global political shift, the right-wing populist Party for Freedom in the Netherlands is projected to win a large plurality. According to exit polling, the PVV will pick up at least 35 seats while the current ruling coalition will combine for 37 losses while only winning 41 seats total.. That makes Geert Wilders, the founder of the Party for Freedom, the big winner. It also means an absolute meltdown has already started given how much Wilders is hated by the European left.. ...

    WASHINGTON—House lawmakers rushed to the exits just ahead of Thanksgiving, with a surge of announced retirements from members fed up with drama and partisanship on Capitol Hill. A dozen lawmakers—six Democrats and six Republicans—have said in November that they don’t plan to continue serving in Congress, the most in any month since at least 2011, based on data compiled by news site Ballotpedia. Just Tuesday, Republican Rep. Bill Johnson of Ohio, 69 years old, announced he would leave office early next year to lead Youngstown State University. The pickup in retirements comes as Republicans continue to fight a wrenching intraparty...
