  • Stunning! There Is Some Very Good News for Republicans

    There’s plenty of bad news about the Republican campaign in 2024, and I’ve covered it in detail, but objectivity requires that one correctly assess what is going right too, and there’s a lot going right for Republicans right now. First and foremost, there is the massive change at the Republican National Committee with the firing of the utterly useless Ronna McDaniel and the elevation of Michael Whatley and Lara Trump. Next, Donald Trump is in a position where it looks like he is likely to win the presidency if current trends continue…that’s one heck of an if. And, finally, we...

    Axios ^ | January 10, 2024 | Linh Ta , author of Axios Des Moines
    The 2024 GOP presidential primary is in full swing in Iowa this week, as candidates squeeze in final campaign stops ahead of the state's caucuses on Jan. 15. Why it matters: While former President Trump has dominated polling, many will be watching how his main rivals, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, perform. Iowa's Republican caucus will be the star of this year's show, due to no significant challengers to President Biden on the Democratic side. When and where do the caucuses take place? On Jan. 15, Iowa Republican primary voters will gather in locations like...

    Greece arrested 79 individuals on charges of arson, perhaps in an attempt to blame it on climate change. Is this what happened in Maui, Yellowknife and Tenerife? Environmentalist are trying to falsely magnify "climate change" to use it as an excuse to promote Marxism By Ezequiel Doiny The battle is over. Their strategy worked.

    Townhall ^ | 05/14/2023 | Derek Hunter
    You can have all the facts on your side and still lose an argument. How? Because the other side is not bound by facts, they’re arguing emotion, and emotion always overrides facts. It sounds stupid, it is stupid, but it’s also true. Think about the things you’ve apologized for in your life – I’d give you odds it was for things you said in the heat of the moment, not after thinking about the situation in a cool, rational way. That emotion factor is a big part of why Republicans always seem to get rolled when it comes to policy...
  • Should the GOP Adopt Ballot Harvesting?

    American Thinker ^ | 03/08/2023 | Joe Fried
    Recently, President Trump urged Republicans to “...become masters of ballot harvesting.” He told an audience at CPAC they need to start harvesting ballots (legally) to counter the harvesting by Democrats. Perhaps I am hung up on semantics, but I think ballot harvesting is awful and usually illegal. What is “Ballot Harvesting”? A harvester is usually an anonymous political operative, or someone paid by a political operative, who rounds up ballots and places them in voter drop boxes or mailboxes -- sometimes after altering them. In other cases he gives the ballots to a political organization, where they are “reviewed” prior...
  • Republican Old Bridge, NJ State Sen. Switches Parties To Democrat-87 year old Trump supporter

    "As recently as Friday, Thompson told NJ PBS "it is my anticipation" he'll once again back Trump for president in 2024. So, Thompson — 87 years old and who the NJ Globe described as a "conservative" Republican — announced he will switch parties and seek re-election to a fifth term as a Democrat. Thompson was a Trump delegate twice, in 2016 and 2020. NJ Globe reported that NJ Republicans leaders urged Henry to step down and retire, so Henry could run."

    The Federalist ^ | 01/24/2023 | Scott R. Pressler
    The Republican Party must mobilize a national early and mail-in voting strategy in key states to be competitive in 2024.For months leading up to the 2022 midterm election, pundits with crystal balls emphatically declared, “The red wave is coming!” To their credit, a perfect storm was brewing: The party out of power historically performs well during a midterm. President Joe Biden’s approval rating was underwater, and working-class families were suffering from the highest inflation rate in more than 40 years. Nonetheless, Republicans only won a narrow majority in the House and lost a Senate seat in Pennsylvania. What turned the...
  • Alabama GOP won’t support Ronna McDaniel as party’s national chair

    The steering committee of the Alabama Republican Party issued a statement of no confidence in Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel and said it would not support her reelection for the position. The RNC is scheduled to elect its next chair at a meeting in February. McDaniel, former leader of the Republican Party in Michigan, has been RNC chair since 2017, when she became the second woman elected to the position. Harmeet Dhillon, an attorney from California, is challenging McDaniel for chair. The Alabama Republican Party steering committee, a 21-member panel, is the main governing body for the state GOP....

    Associated Press ^ | December 31, 2022 | Ayanna Alexander and Gary Fields
    Black voters have been a steady foundation for Democratic candidates for decades, but that support appeared to show a few cracks in this year’s elections. Republican candidates were backed by 14% of black voters, compared with 8% in the last midterm elections four years ago, according to AP VoteCast, an extensive national survey of the electorate. In Georgia, Republican Gov. Brian Kemp more than doubled his support among black voters to 12% in 2022 compared with 5% four years ago, according to VoteCast. He defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams both times. If that boost can be sustained, Democrats could face headwinds...

    The American Conservative ^ | December 12, 2022 | Bradley Devlin
    Republican voters did their part. When one accumulates the popular vote for House races across the country, Republicans won by three percentage points—a margin that was once just under five points but narrowed as votes from deep-blue districts trickled in over weeks after Election Day. That kind of turnout for Republicans “would normally translate into GOP gains of 20-30 seats,” according to the Cook Political Report. But Republicans have as of early December netted only eight seats, bringing their total in the House to 220. At most, Republicans will hold 222. In races that seemed to be easy flips, Republicans...

    Mayor Eric Adams has focused much of his energy on public safety, as other crises receiving less attention have deepened. Now, as his first year in office draws to a close, Adams is ready to take aim at one of the largest problems escalating across the city: An acute housing shortage that has driven up the cost of renting and buying a home. Adams plans to announce as early as Thursday a set of over 100 reforms designed to ease development by minimizing regulations, modernizing arcane rules and trimming costs for builders, according to a summary of the proposals obtained...

    Democrats will continue stealing elections forever. There should be a referendum for secession in red states so people can regain their freedom and democracy By Ezequiel Doiny In the article below I describe the globalist's strategy to impose Marxism in America. But Marxists are not only trying to seize power in America, they want to impose a "Great Reset" worldwide. Since they can't be democratically elected,Marxists have been corrupting democracies around the World by disrupting the electoral process. Mexico, Brazil, Israel and the US are some examples.

    Video from the mid-1990s has surfaced showing Keith Ellison doubting the legal culpability of a convicted cop killer. Power Line’s Scott Johnson recently posted unearthed footage from a November 1996 panel discussion Ellison participated in regarding the death penalty. Working as an attorney at the time, Ellison claimed the death penalty was one of several “racially biased” institutions that disproportionately affect black Americans and “oppressed nationalities.” He cited the example of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a black man who was sentenced to death in 1982 for the first-degree murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Despite the guilty conviction, Ellison claimed without...

    Gov. Tim Walz is under fire for accepting the endorsement of former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who has promoted conspiracy theories about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Walz called it an “honor” to be endorsed by the former one-term governor and thanked him for “taking the unprecedented step” of supporting his campaign. “I can’t stand with anyone or any party who cannot condemn the Jan. 6 insurrection,” Ventura said in his endorsement. “And now, women’s rights are under attack across this country.” Minnesota GOP Chairman David Hann, a Vietnam veteran like Ventura, said he was “appalled” that the governor would “seek...

    Centennial School Board candidate Jessica Schwinn suggested white people who quote Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are racist and accused them of advocating for white supremacy. Schwinn called a “family meeting” in an undated TikTok video to reprimand white people, calling them racist and uninformed. They are “upholding” white supremacy, she said. Schwinn is running for school board with a slate of candidates calling themselves “4Centennial,” which includes Andrew Meyer, Laura Gannon, and Kara Schmitz. The Centennial School District encompasses Blaine, Centerville, Circle Pines, Lexington, and Lino Lakes. The text introducing the video reads: “ATTN: white people: Family meeting time....

    Another county in the state of Minnesota has sent voters erroneous ballots, bringing the total number of affected counties to four. In a filing with the Minnesota Supreme Court last Friday, Murray County Auditor-Treasurer Heidi Winter cited a “clerical error” as the reason why midterm general election ballots were distributed with outdated district numbers for the Minnesota Senate and House of Representatives races. Due to redistricting, Murray County’s state Senate and House district numbers were changed from 22 and 22A to 21 and 21A. But the ballots sent to voters were still printed with 22 and 22A. The filing states...

    WCCO claims to be lacking evidence that Attorney General Keith Ellison is “anti-cop,” as a Republican Attorneys General Association ad has it. The station ran a fact-check on the ad Monday, asking for “more specifics” on the “serious accusations” that Ellison has been “anti-cop forever” and “supports convicts.” In the article, University of Minnesota professor Larry Jacobs, without specifying, said “some” of the “claims” in the ad are “outright wrong.” Much of this information on Ellison has been discussed in the past. Power Line’s Scott Johnson has been writing about Ellison’s early life on and off for the past 15...
