    Hours after Joe Biden announced his re-election campaign on Tuesday, his vice-president and 2024 running mate, Kamala Harris, delivered a fiery call to action for voters alarmed by the loss of constitutional protections for abortion. “This is a moment for us to stand and fight,” she said to a packed auditorium at Howard University.....

    .@RepAOC I have repeatedly asked you to debate me, but you have been a coward and can’t even respond. But you go on @CNN and lie about me. When are you going to be an adult and actually debate me on policy instead of run your mouth like a teenage girl? — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene February 3, 2023 So can you explain why you sickos in NY abused Covid relief funds for things like Drag Queen story time? Was it a good time to brainwash kids and lie to them about gender when your state forced them to stay...

    Fewer than one in five Republican voters want Ronna McDaniel to be Republican National Committee (RNC) chair again, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, and of the three candidates — McDaniel, attorney Harmeet Dhillon, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell — Lindell surpassed Dhillon by a 10-point margin. Republican voters want radical change in their party, and this poll shows that they want an outsider with a track record of defying the establishment to enact that change.Rasmussen found in its survey of Republican voters that 30% support Mike Lindell for RNC chair, 20% support Harmeet Dhillon, and only 15% support...

    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....
  • Is Biden profiting from the restoration of Ukraine?

    01/10/2023 5:37:01 AM PST · by Johnston0015 · 24 replies
    Rebuilding Ukraine from the devastating consequences of the conflict with Russia will require a significant investment of capital. Since Ukraine currently survives mainly on foreign money, it is not surprising that the severe attraction of foreign investments is necessary to implement plans to return the country to its pre-war state. In September, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held a meeting via video link with Larry Fink, head of one of the largest international investment companies BlackRock, during which potential opportunities for attracting public and private investments to Ukraine were discussed. As a result of these negotiations in November, a memorandum...
  • Black support for GOP ticked up in this year’s midterms

    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...
  • Elon Musk says he would support Ron DeSantis for president if he runs in 2024

    Musk made the comment in a tweet on Friday night. "Would you support Ron DeSantis in 2024, Elon?," a Twitter user asked. "Yes," Musk replied. Musk made the statement after conservative comedian Tim Young pointed out that Trump hasn't tweeted since his suspension was reversed. "I’m fine with Trump not tweeting. The important thing is that Twitter correct a grave mistake in banning his account, despite no violation of the law or terms of service. Deplatforming a sitting President undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America," Musk tweeted.

    On Wednesday afternoon, Democrat Gabe Vasquez declared victory in New Mexico’s Second Congressional District race against incumbent Republican Rep. Yvette Herrell, who has held the seat since 2021. Rep. Herrell wrote the following in a concession statement: While we are disappointed by the final results, I am incredibly proud of our team and the work we did serving our district, and I am grateful for the steadfast support of so many who helped us along the way. I’d also like to congratulate Gabe Vasquez on his victory. Two years ago, the Democrats in Santa Fe announced they would gerrymander our...

    CHUCK TODD: Well, Governor, Why are you supporting an election denialist? GOV. CHRIS SUNUNU: Yeah, let me tell you, you're in a bubble, man. I love you, Chuck, but you are in a bubble if you think anybody's talking about what happened in 2020, or talking about Mar-a-Lago and all that. I know the press loves to talk about it. People are talking about what is happening in their pocketbooks every single day when they have to buy groceries or fill up gas or right now -- Well, that's -- CHUCK TODD: You think this should be prioritized over election...

    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...

    American Action Forum ^ | October 26, 2022 | Fred Ashton
    The consumer welfare standard has been the backbone of antitrust policy for over 40 years and provides a consistent basis for the enforcement of antitrust law. The consumer welfare standard is measurable using economic analysis and empirical evidence, facilitating a reliable and objective application of antitrust law. Commandeering antitrust policy as a tool to solve other societal ills including depressed employee wages and harm to competitors risks creating uncertainty, stifling innovation, and slowing economic growth.

The ABC News/Ipsos poll, published on Sunday, found that 72 percent of registered Republicans believe that DeSantis, a former U.S. congressman, should have a great or good deal of influence in the future direction of the GOP, while 64 percent of respondents said the same of Trump.

    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...

    On Sunday night, a video began circulating showing a Republican-turned-Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Karen Bedonie saying her Republican rival Mark Ronchetti “cannot win” with her in the race. Both are running to unseat Democrat first-term Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. In the video shared on Twitter, Bedonie says, “The only comfort I find in this race is that man (Ronchetti) cannot win with me in the way. That man cannot win this race. He will never be governor as long as I am alive and well and in this race. The snippet appears to be taken from a previous live stream Bedonie...

    Since 2018 two prominent members of the Soros family have donated thousands of dollars to help Keith Ellison become or remain Minnesota’s attorney general. According to a campaign finance disclosure, George Soros and his son Alexander each gave Ellison’s 2022 reelection campaign $2,500 in October of last year. Ellison appears to be one of the only individual candidates in Minnesota to whom the Soros’ have personally donated money. Aside from Ellison’s campaign itself, Alexander Soros gave a whopping $100,000 to the People’s Lawyer PAC in June 2018. Per the Washington Free Beacon, the People’s Lawyer PAC was an independent expenditure...

    A Democrat state representative with children deleted a tweet saying abortion should be legal because being a mother is difficult. Rep. Liz Boldon, a mother of three children who serves the Rochester area in the Minnesota House of Representatives, tweeted Sunday morning that motherhood is the “hardest job” she’ll “ever have” and added that “no one should be forced to be a parent.” “Being a mom is the hardest job I’ll ever have. No one should be forced to be a parent. #AbortionIsHealthcare,” she said. Boldon deleted the tweet after receiving significant backlash, but not before others took screenshots of...

    Minnesota’s teachers union, one of Gov. Tim Walz’s top political allies, has donated nearly $2 million to state Democrats so far this election cycle. According to new campaign finance reports, Education Minnesota’s political action committee gifted $513,000 each to the House and Senate DFL caucuses, and another $900,000 to the DFL State Central Committee, for a total of $1.9 million. All of the donations were made in August and September. Emails previously obtained by Alpha News show the union was given inside access to the Walz administration throughout the pandemic and its president, Denise Specht, had a close working relationship...
