    Nearly every U.S. governor, including those in Democratic states, has opposed the Biden administration's move to incorporate Air National Guard service members into the Space Force. In a letter to the Department of Defense on Monday, 53 governors in states and U.S. territories signed a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin voicing their "strong opposition" to the plan. The letter, signed by several allies of President Joe Biden, argues that the plan to shift space units from the Air National Guard to the Space Force "undermines over 100 years of precedent" as well as national security and military readiness. The...

    President Biden on Friday made an extended case for passing a bipartisan border security deal brokered in the Senate as he hosted roughly 30 governors at the White House. Immigration was a key component of the reception for governors, with fact sheets laying out details of the Senate deal placed on tables where the governors were seated. After opening with comments on the war in Ukraine, Biden pivoted to the topic of border security. “Folks, Congress has had a long, proud bipartisan history on immigration reform and abiding by our international treaty obligations, which we’ve signed, related to immigration. These...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Jill Biden lamented the partisanship that permeates Capitol Hill and politics writ large, telling governors at the White House that she wished more lawmakers would follow their lead. She spoke on Friday in the White House’s East Room to state chief executives who were in Washington for the winter gathering of the National Governors Association. During her brief remarks, Biden recalled something that Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, had told her when she visited his state last year. “What you said really stayed with me,” Biden said. “You said pure partisan politics has never...

    Sternly against the current White House resident’s corruption, these governors released the following joint statement in support of Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Texas’ constitutional right to self-defense.The statement comes as the Biden Administration continues to attack Texas and refuses to take action or responsibility for their crisis at the Southern border.“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border. Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from...

    Bernalillo County District Attorney Sam Bregman made clear Saturday he will not be enforcing New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s (D) 30-day ban on concealed carry. Breitbart News reported that Grisham issued the ban on Friday and it took effect Saturday, September 8, 2023. The ban bars the carrying of handguns in public and covers both open and concealed carry. It applies to cities like Albuquerque, which is located in Bernalillo County. Grisham’s ban applies to licensed concealed carriers.

    President Biden on Friday focused on implementing his agenda over the past two years during a meeting with governors from both sides of the aisle, calling for governors to focus on the work that has already been done as he faces a divided Congress. “One of the things we have to do this year is we have, in a sense, almost too much to work with because we got to get done what we already passed, not even talking about new legislation, just what has already been passed,” he said during the National Governors Association (NGA) winter meeting at the...

    Representative Joaquin Castro (D-TX) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” that Govs. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Doug Ducey (R-AZ) should “stop being pricks.” Guest host Alicia Menendez said, “Do you think the upcoming Congress can get anything done that actually addresses some of the systemic issues that we see when it comes to immigration in America?” Castro said, “Yeah, look, we absolutely could. You’ve got a Democratic president, a Democratic Senate, and a Republican House. I’ve seen in the past that where you have divided government like that, it actually provides an opportunity for compromise and...

    All the country's top conservative governors were easily reelected in midterm elections that overall did not go as well as Republicans hoped. Governors Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Ron DeSantis of Florida, Jared Polis of Colorado, Brad Little of Idaho, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Brian Kemp of Georgia, and Greg Abbott of Texas were all ranked in the top 10 of conservative governors in a Laffer-ALEC analysis last year and coasted to reelection on Tuesday. The Laffer-ALEC 2021 report, which was conducted by well-known conservatives such as ALEC's Dr. Arthur B. Laffer and The Heritage...

  • Dems ‘frantic’ over ‘tightening’ NY Governor’s race, Hochul no longer ‘presumed safe': New York Times report

    The New York Times reported Thursday that Democrats are "frantic" over reports that the gubernatorial race between Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., and Gov. Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., is tightening. In a piece titled, "As Governor’s Race Tightens, a Frantic Call to Action Among Democrats," the outlet claimed that the party and its allies, including labor unions, have "gone into overdrive" to campaign for and donate to Hochul, who seems to be slipping in her appeal with Black and Latino voters. Meanwhile, Zeldin is drawing closer to Hochul, as recent polling has shown.

    All together now: Healthy children are at a vanishingly small risk for serious illness or death from COVID-19, and the novel mRNA shot can produce harmful side effects in young people, with myocarditis in young men being especially pronounced. In recognition of these clearly observable trends, some countries, such as Holland and the UK, have recommended children not get COVID shots. Yet, inexplicably, the CDC’s advisory panel voted unanimously on Wednesday to add the COVID shot to the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. (Well, inexplicable unless you look at them as compromised hacks in bed with Big Pharma.) Panel member...

    Republican MAGA superstar Kari Lake is up by three points over Democrat Katie Hobbs, per a Trafalgar Group/Daily Wire poll. This same poll also shows Republican Blake Masters surging against incumbent Democrat and Biden puppet Mark Kelly for Arizona’s U.S. Senate race: Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is ahead of her Democratic opponent, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, with a lead just inside the poll’s 2.9-point margin of error: 49.2% to 46.4%. Republican Blake Masters at 46.4% is running close behind incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly (47.4%).

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) lead over Republican Tudor Dixon in the state’s gubernatorial race has narrowed in a new poll. The Cygnal poll, which was commissioned by The White Law Firm and the Michigan Association of Broadcasters, found Whitmer leading Dixon by 5 points, 49 to 44 percent. Independents are evenly split between the candidates, with 43 percent supporting each. Most polls have shown Whitmer with a larger lead, some by double digits, but a CBS News-YouGov poll from earlier this month found her lead to only be at 6 points. FiveThirtyEight’s polling average has Whitmer leading Dixon by...

In an exclusive statement to Breitbart News on Sunday, state senator and Republican gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey highlighted the “failure” of Democrat Gov. J. B. Pritzker, calling him “an out-of-touch trust fund billionaire who has abandoned working families.”

    The nonpartisan Cook Political Report shifted the Oregon gubernatorial race toward Republicans on Friday, moving it from “lean Democrat” to “toss up.” Three candidates are vying for the seat of Gov. Kate Brown (D), who is term-limited: former state House Speaker Tina Kotek (D), former state House Minority Leader Christine Drazan (R) and former state Sen. Betsy Johnson (I). Cook Political Report attributed its ratings change to the fact that Johnson could act as a disruptor in the race given her fundraising advantage and her TV ad spending, leading to tied polling between Kotek and Drazan. “There’s a clear trend...
