    In an extensive interview with journalist Bari Weiss on her podcast, "Honestly," former Trump administration Attorney General William Barr said that "if I had to bet" who'd be elected president in 2024, he'd say Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

    Dr. Mehmet Oz, who earned former President Donald Trump’s primary-race endorsement in April, is going down in flames according to a new GOP poll. Republican-affiliated Public Opinion Strategies reports that surgeon-turned-TV-host Dr. Oz trails Democrat John Fetterman by nearly 20 points!Trump gave Oz his “complete and total endorsement” before the wide-open GOP primary of six candidates, a move that probably sealed the deal with Pennsylvania Republicans. The doc won in a squeaker, barely beating out second-place finisher David McCormick, 31.2% to 31.1%. The former president praised Oz’s positions on abortion, crime, the Second Amendment, border security, the military, education, energy...

    In early July the race between Kari Lake and Karrin Taylor Robson for governor was a relatively close 39% to 31% split favoring Lake. On July 18, former Vice-President Mike Pence came to Arizona to publicly endorse Robson. Now Lake leads Robson 51% to 33%. A late surge of daily Robson mailers and a saturating barrage of TV ads appears to have been futile. A puzzled Pence wondered, "was it something I said? If it was, I am so sorry, I was only trying to help." If you missed any of the other Semi-News/Semi-Satire posts you can find them at......
  • Kathy Barnette declines to commit to Dr. Oz endorsement in Pennsylvania Senate race

    Conservative commentator Kathy Barnette, who came in third in Pennsylvania's Senate Republican primary, is "having discussions" with Dr. Mehmet Oz's team about endorsing her former rival, she told the Washington Examiner in an interview Tuesday. For much of the campaign, the Pennsylvania GOP primary was centered on Oz, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, and businessman Dave McCormick. The two nearly tied when all the votes were counted, with Oz coming out on top by less than 1,000 votes. Barnette began surging in the polls during the final days of the race, as the battle between Oz and...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said on Sunday that former President Trump’s recent endorsements have all been “emotional decisions” not based on “political analysis.” During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Christie pointed to Trump’s recent endorsement of GOP Senate candidate J.D. Vance in Ohio.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday said former President Trump’s endorsements in the upcoming midterm elections will not be “determinative.” Asked by anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” what role Trump’s endorsements will play in November’s midterm races, Christie said they will “always be a factor” because of the ex-president’s influence in the Republican Party, but argued that they will not always determine the outcomes.

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) knocked former President Trump on Monday, pointing to the former president’s loss in Old Line State during the 2020 presidential election. “Personally, I'd prefer endorsements from people who didn’t lose Maryland by 33 points,” Hogan wrote on Twitter shortly after Trump announced that he was endorsing Maryland state Del. Daniel Cox (R) for governor in next year’s GOP primary. Hogan, who is barred from running for reelection due to term limits, is backing state Secretary of Commerce Kelly Schultz in the Maryland race. Trump lost the 2020 presidential election in Maryland to Democratic-nominee Joe Biden...

    Conservative and America First Republicans rejoiced at Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) leadership ouster Wednesday as an end to the “Bush-Cheney-McCain era.” “Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, goodbye Liz Cheney,” Rep. Madison Cawthorn tweeted shortly after the caucus vote. “Liz Cheney is so mad right now because this was a vote that her and fellow democrats couldn’t rig at 3 AM,” Travis, who has 4,755 followers, tweeted. [cut] “Good riddance to the Bush-Cheney-McCain era of the Republican Party,’ Daniel B. Ravicher said. Michael Knowles tweeted, “Can’t believe the GOP ousted Liz Cheney even after she received...

    I voted for Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican primary election, left my ballot blank in the 2016 general election, and now must decide whom to vote for this year. In several ways, I find Donald Trump over the top and offensive. I have said this on air and on Twitter. He can be too hot to handle, insulting people and often making himself the issue, diverting attention from more important policy matters. Many of my Republican friends, notably women, will not vote for him, not because they are “Republicans in name only” but because the president has given them...

    --SNIP-- Let’s look at the Trump record: Under Donald Trump the economy, pre-COVID, boomed, like no time since the 1950s. Look at your 401(k) over the past three years. Unemployment for Black Americans is lower than it has ever been, under any president of either party. Under Mr. Trump, our trade relationships have vastly improved and our trade deals have been rewritten. Thanks to him, middle America is on the map again and the Appalachian and hourly worker has some hope. Has Mr. Trump done enough for these struggling fellow citizens? No. But he recognized them. Maybe he was not...

    On the face of it, the choice on November 3 is straightforward. A president is running for reelection who brings with him a record of some remarkable achievements over the past four years, both domestically and internationally. Running against him is an opponent who seems locked in the past, with a failed leftist agenda, but with an overarching message that he will restore dignity to the presidency.Few will deny that Donald Trump has a controversial personality (although Biden is hardly a saint himself), but look at what he has accomplished and the promise that four more years of a Trump...

    Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are endorsing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, with the singer saying she doesn't want her kids to learn that it's "OK to be racist" from President Trump's administration. "For me, it's unifying the nation again, getting rid of this hate," Lopez said in a chat with the former vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, tweeted Friday by the Democratic presidential nominee. "Thinking about my kids walking around in a world where you know it's OK to be racist or prejudiced because our administration says it's OK," the actress and "Ain't Your Mama" singer added....

    Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris, marking the first time he’s ever publicly thrown his weight behind a political candidate. With the exception of a brief flirtation with a 2020 presidential run himself, Johnson, 48, often takes great pains to remain apolitical at a time when Hollywood is seemingly filled to the brim with activism. However, the “Jumanji” actor took to Instagram, on Sunday, where he shared a video of a virtual conversation he had with the two Democratic candidates and officially gave them his public endorsement. “I’m going to be pushing...

    The two dozen tech geniuses who endorsed Joe Biden in a recent New York Times letter showed an obliviousness all too typical of the industry. Biden and running mate Kamala Harris “listen to experts before setting public policy,” they claim — which evidently means they’ll favor the tech industry’s preferences when it comes to immigration policy. The 24 winners of the Turing Award, aka the Nobel Prize of programming, don’t run the Big Tech companies. But they clearly join in the industry’s upset over H-1B visas, which normally allow for the recruitment of immigrants with specialized skills — until President...

    The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association board has switched its endorsements of Democrat candidates to Republican after one Democrat candidate was purportedly caught on video beating a piñata with the likeness of top police union official Bob Kroll. Brian Peters, who serves as executive director of the police association, expressed concern over DFL caucus’ support of Thompson after he was identified as beating the Kroll effigy. “The endorsements that we rescinded, my issue was those candidates did not stand up to their leadership and put pressure on and ask why are we supporting a candidate who did this in...

    A number of Democrat mayors from Minnesota endorsed President Donald Trump for a second term on Friday as Vice President Mike Pence campaigns in the state. "Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents' jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class. We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with...

    KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Former President George W. Bush on Friday backed Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine in his first public endorsement of the 2020 election cycle. [Cut] “She’s honest. She’s forthright. She brings dignity into a world that has gotten really ugly. The political world is uglier than I can ever remember it,” Bush said after he and his wife, Laura, had lunch with Collins at the family’s summer home overlooking the ocean. Bush called her “smart and capable,” “very influential” and “pretty darned independent.”

    Former President Barack Obama released his list of election candidate endorsements on Monday, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was nowhere to be seen. “I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic, and highly qualified Democrats,” tweeted Obama. “If you’re in one of their districts or states, make sure you vote for them this fall. And if you can, vote early—by mail or in person.” In the list of 118 endorsements across 17 states - including California, New York, Illinois, and Texas - Obama gave his blessing to candidates for the House, Senate, and state positions. Six of...
