    The leftist Occupy Democrats group shared reminders on Tuesday for people worried about Vice President Kamala Harris running against former President Donald Trump and losing. “Important reminders!” the group’s Facebook post read. “Also for all those who still have PTSD about Hillary losing in 2016 and worry for same fate for Kamala, we are in such different times,” the post read: 1. Hillary won the national popular vote. 2. The threat of Trump, the Supreme Court, and the Republican Party is much more apparent. 3. Democratic Party is way more unified today than it was in 2016. 4. Trump has...
  • When Kamala Harris was put in charge in past jobs, scandal and failure often followed

    Just the News ^ | 7/23/24 | By Steven Richards and John Solomon
    Before she was Joe Biden’s understudy the last four years, Kamala Harris ran offices as a California prosecutor and senator. Often, scandal and failings followed in her wake. As California Attorney General, Harris was widely criticized for failing to take on prosecutorial misconduct. In fact her office was “called out” by judges for “defending convictions obtained by local prosecutors” who had inserted false confessions, lied under oath, and withheld evidence. A federal appeals judge even admonished officials in 2015 to talk to Harris "and make sure she understands the gravity of the situation" involving prosecutorial misconduct. Likewise, Harris’ top deputy...

    After the demise of Roe, abortion advocates channeled Chicken Little, claiming the sky would fall on pro-life candidates because outraged voters will elect their pro-abortion opponents. Pro-Abortion Candidates are Losing The media touted a State Supreme Court race in Georgia as a bellwether of races to come. Former pro-abortion Democrat Congressman John Barrow ran against incumbent Justice Andrew Pinson because as solicitor general he successfully defended the Heartbeat law. Barrow centered his entire campaign on abortion. Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion lobby groups endorsed him. Barrow lost by ten percentage points. During West Virginia’s primary, eighty-seven percent of the candidates...
  • Will There Even Be Another Presidential Debate? Donald Trump Suggests Fox News Should Host Rather Than ABC News

    Deadline ^ | July 21, 2024 | Ted Johnson and Dominic Patten
    Donald Trump may be laying the groundwork for scrambling plans for another presidential debate, suggesting that Fox News, and not ABC News, should be the host. ABC News had been slated to host the debate between Trump and President Joe Biden on Sept. 10. But now that Biden has dropped out of the race, it is unclear whether those plans will happen. Biden has endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris, but if she wins the nomination, it will be her campaign operation to decide. Trump, meanwhile, posted on Truth Social, “My debate with Crooked Joe Biden, the Worst President in the...

    Seventy-nine percent of Democrats said they would approve of Vice President Kamala Harris becoming the Democratic presidential nominee if President Joe Biden steps aside, according to a new Economist/YouGov poll. Twenty-eight percent of Democrats think Harris would be more likely than Biden to win against former President Donald Trump in the fall, while 32% say Biden and Harris have about the same chances of winning. Less than a quarter say Biden would be more likely than Harris to defeat the former president. The results come as Biden faces renewed calls to drop out of the race from Democrats who worry...

    It sounds like common sense, but the radical left elected officials in our state continue to reject this notion, disrespecting the voices of our lawful Arizona voters...' In a decision released Thursday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals determined that illegal immigrants were not allowed to vote in Arizona. ... However, the ruling will apply only through the primary elections.. With an appeals court scheduled to hear the case in September, it leaves open the possibility that the Gov. Katie Hobbs’s outrageous election-law loophole to let illegals vote in federal races may yet be reversed ahead of the Nov. 5...

    Arizona won't be able to block those who sign up to vote using a federal registration form from casting a ballot in the presidential race, at least not now. In a brief order Thursday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a plea by Republican legislative leaders to delay a ruling by a trial judge that barring enforcement of such a ban. In the same order, the three-judge panel also said those using that federal form still can cast their ballots by mail. What the judges decided, however, is that anyone who tries to register to vote using a state...

    The socialist dictator of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro threatened a “bloodbath” and a “fratricidal civil war” on Wednesday if Venezuelans do not “elect” him in the upcoming July 28 sham presidential election. Maduro issued his warning during a campaign rally speech in the La Vega Parrish of Caracas, asserting that his victory is the only way to guarantee peace in Venezuela.

    Newly minted felon New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez has told allies that he plans to resign following his conviction on federal bribery charges, according to a report Wednesday. NBC News, citing two unnamed sources “directly familiar with those conversations,” reported that the three-term Democrat voiced his intent to call it quits. Menendez, 70, was convicted by a Manhattan federal jury Tuesday of 16 counts for trading his political power to benefit three Garden State businessmen and the governments of Egypt and Qatar in exchange for hundreds of thousands in cash, gold bars and gifts. He refused to say whether he...

    The Democrat-majority North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE) blocked presidential candidates for the Justice for All Party (Cornel West) and the We the People Party (Robert F Kennedy, Jr.) from November's general election ballot. They approved the Constitution Party's candidate (Randall Terry). NCSBE member Alan Hirsch explained "it's not that we disapprove of the views of either Mr. West or Mr. Kennedy. They are acceptably left-of-center, but that's the problem. President Biden is also left-of-center. Having these three men split the left-of-center vote can only work to the advantage of Donald Trump." "The reason for our approval of the...

    My organization sponsors a quarterly poll in conjunction with our magazine. Meeting Street Insights conducts the poll for us. For our Summer issue, we thought it would be interesting to poll young people in Minnesota, which we defined as ages 18 through 34. To my knowledge, no one has done this before. We asked young Minnesotans not about their views on politics or policy, but about their lives and concerns.The results were stunning. Young people in Minnesota are deeply pessimistic about their futures, and their country’s future. We asked respondents whether their generation is better off economically than their parents’...

    Former President Donald Trump’s selection of Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance might surprise you, but it shouldn’t. The 39-year-old first-term senator is a solid, smart pick who will not only bring youth, energy and vigor to the ticket, but also a wealth of hard life experience, highly unusual for someone so young. Trump’s announcement gave the bare bones of why he selected Vance over the many others who vied to be his running mate: After lengthy deliberation and thought, and considering the tremendous talents of many others, I have decided that the person best suited to assume the position of Vice...

    Donald Trump’s takeover of the Republican Party shows itself in the platform priorities approved here at the convention and the people who are now influencing the Illinois Republican Party. With all the hoopla from inside the convention hall at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum, it’s easy to miss the people left outside of the arena and the party. Among them: Adam Kinzinger, who was once viewed as the future of the GOP. He was a fresh-faced military vet who, as a congressman, voted with Trump more than 90 percent of the time. But then he committed the Cardinal Sin of today’s GOP:...

    Preliminarily, let me say what I wrote yesterday: Trump’s near miss seems to have an element of Divine Providence to it, reminiscent of how George Washington invariably emerged from the heat of battle unscathed. Just sayin’. Now, to the topic at hand, which is the Secret Service’s performance before, during, and after the assassination attempt. It wasn’t good. Ironically, just yesterday, I finished reading Lee Child’s Without Fail, which was published in 2008. In it, Jack Reacher works with the female head of the Vice President’s Secret Service detail to help foil an assassination attempt. Unlike most Reacher novels, this...

    Nearly half of 80,000 small businesses surveyed say they won’t survive the current economic climate, ongoing inflation or another four years of Biden administration policies, according to the survey conducted by RedBalloon and Public Square. Their May Freedom Economy Index found that small businesses “remain in survival mode,” with 40% delaying paying bills to manage cash flow and 70 percent putting staffing plans on hold, neither hiring nor reducing staff, “the highest reading … over the past year,” the report states. Among those surveyed, 64% said the U.S. is headed toward stagflation, when inflation continues to climb and the economic...

Deep Blue New Jersey has a chance to turn red this election year, some very enthusiastic Republicans insist. But a local GOP...

It is already illegal for noncitizens to register to vote or to vote in federal elections. The bill had 104 Republican co-sponsors, including top House Republicans such as House Majority Leader Steve Scalise of Louisiana, Majority Whip Tom...

    What genius advised President Joe Biden, post-debate, to “get out more in unscripted settings”? ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Biden whether he watched the debate. Biden’s response? “I don’t think I did, no.” During this short interview, we saw softball questions followed by mumbled answers and frequent incoherence. Subtitles would have helped, or perhaps Stephanopoulos could have hired Shohei Ohtani’s translator. Biden said there were only two polls where he was behind Donald Trump. Biden named one poll and struggled to name the second. But Stephanopoulos stepped in and threw Biden a lifeline by naming the second poll. Biden said he...
