    Joe Biden was giving a speech before the UN General Assembly on Tuesday. So you know it's time to hold your breath and hope he doesn't say anything too egregious while he's on such a big stage before the world, including so many who don't wish us well. One of the things that he made clear and that he isn't shy about -- he's a full-on globalist. America doesn't come first, making sure we bend over does. If we haven't given all our money to Ukraine yet, hey, let's give billions more to up funding to the World Bank. It...

    When Barack Obama won Florida just over a decade ago, Democratic registrants outnumbered Republicans in the Sunshine State by around 800,000. Republicans remained competitive because of strong turnout and support from independents, but they grappled with this structural disadvantage. During the DeSantis governorship, the red and blue lines crossed, with GOP registrations edging into the lead. By early 2022, Florida Republicans' registration advantage pushed into six figures. By last fall's Election Day, it had swelled even further, setting the table for an epic, dominant GOP sweep.While the national red wave was a dud of historic proportions, with a handful of...

    Joe Biden is in Japan now for the G7 meeting, right in the middle of challenging debt negotiation meetings with the Republicans. That’s all on him because he delayed meeting with Republicans for so long. He had planned on being abroad longer, after the G7 but he’s amended his plans and will be coming back to try to make a deal after he got shamed into it by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). But now Biden is in Japan doing what he generally does when he’s overseas — embarrassing the heck out of us. Biden was meeting with other leaders...

    BISMARCK, North Dakota (LifeSiteNews) — North Dakota has become the latest state to prohibit minors from being chemically or surgically mutilated through transgender drugs and surgeries. House Bill 1254, signed on April 19 by Republican Governor Doug Burgum, prohibits medical professionals from performing “castration, vasectomy, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, metoidioplasty, orchiectomy, penectomy, phalloplasty, or vaginoplasty” on minors. It also prohibits a mastectomy and the administration of puberty blockers. There are exceptions for intersex individuals and anyone who has already started one of these medical procedures. Intersex and transgender are not the same thing, as explained here by LifeSiteNews’ Jeremy Williamson. The American...

    Remember how the Washington Post complained when the purple California turned solidly blue? Oh, you don't remember that? Well, that is because it never happened. However, when a formerly purple state turns red, as is the case with Iowa, the Washington Post can be counted to go into full whine mode over it as happened on Monday in a story by Annie Gowen "Iowa’s sharp right turn: From centrist state to ‘Florida of the North'."

    Stanford has been a leader in going woke. It dropped its Indian mascot in 1972, and never replaced it. Maybe administrators anticipated that any 3-dimensional “thing” would be considered controversial so Stanford is just a color. Cardinal. Cardinal – as in on the RGB value scale – 196,30, 58. Remember that “cardinal’ isn’t a “color” on the alphabet soup flag. Something the wokest of the woke can now complain about. In the several-minute-long speech, the associate dean launched into the usual talking points that Duncan was “literally denying the humanity of people”. She said: Although she was “uncomfortable”, with law...

    When Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene called (again) for "national divorce" this week, a common retort among her detractors on Twitter was to claim that so-called red states are heavily dependent on so-called blue states to pay for pretty much everything.Reporter Molly Knight claimed, for example, that "Red states get their money for roads and cops and schools from blue states. You cut off that gravy train and you e [sic] got a third world country."Others claimed that red states would be "entirely broke" without blue states. America's social democrats have apparently fully gone over to pushing the narrative that the...

    (The opinions expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of lopsided trade that sprung basketball player Brittney Griner didn’t include U.S. Marine Paul Whelan—because the Kremlin demanded convicted assassin Vadim Krasikov be freed from a German prison in exchange, according to the New York Times and multiple other outlets. The murderous Krasikov was once a colonel in the notorious Federal Security Service (FSB), the main successor to the KGB.After Germany refused to take part in a three-way deal to free Krasikov, the United States instead settled on swapping Griner for “Merchant of Death”...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) days on the House Foreign Affairs Committee are numbered. After getting only a slap on the wrist for making a series of anti-Semitic comments after taking office, it appears she is going to receive the Marjorie Taylor Greene treatment. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said, on Saturday, that when Republicans are in control of the House in 2023, he will strip Omar of her committee assignment. During a speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s leadership meeting, he said: “We watch antisemitism grow, not just on our campuses, but we watched it grow In the halls...

    On Tuesday, the Sunshine State overperformed–and for great reasons.Like many, I was casually surprised when the result started coming through Tuesday night, and we did not see the massive numbers of victories for the Republicans as promised. As Wednesday dawned, many were left perplexed about the very muted results, including me, for a very notable reason. Here in Florida, we had grand expectations about the election and experienced something unique, as it turns out – the Florida Republicans actually overperformed, and therein lies where lessons are derived.Coming into Tuesday, the major races looked to be sewn up, with the only...

    As reported by the Miami Herald, another good guy with a gun drew his firearm outside a grocery store in Florida over the weekend, in response to a pregnant woman being beaten and stomped on the head by her boyfriend. As you might guess, the good guy brought an end to the brutal attack — pronto. The woman told Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies that her boyfriend — 27-year-old Cole Danisment — got angry and repeatedly punched her in the face in the parking lot of a Publix in Largo around 5:15 p.m. on Saturday. Largo is approximately 45 minutes southwest...
  • Buoyed by Latinos, DeSantis could become the first Republican candidate for governor to win Miami-Dade in 20 years

    10/23/2022 5:42:11 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 34 replies
    MIAMI — Florida Democrats are fretting over Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ popularity among Latinos, saying they are boosting his chances of becoming the first Republican governor in 20 years to win traditionally blue Miami-Dade County and therefore propelling his chances of a successful presidential run in 2024. Miami-Dade, the state's most populous county, is 70% Hispanic. The last time a Republican governor won Miami-Dade County was Jeb Bush in 2002. Unlike DeSantis, Bush held press conferences in fluent Spanish and his wife is Mexican-born. DeSantis is an “outlier” among Republican governors, said Fernand Amandi, a Democratic consultant and pollster in...

    Florida has become a “refuge of sanity in a world gone mad.” That was the assessment of Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., in remarks Saturday evening at the third National Conservatism Conference in Miami. DeSantis’ speech focused on the core theme of how Florida has become a bastion of liberty—a refuge for those seeking better governance and a freer life. He said that his state, in many ways, has gone in the opposite direction compared with many other states and the federal government. “It is said that our federalist system creates ‘laboratories of democracy’ where different states can approach things in...

    Days after the unprecedented raid of Donald Trump’s Florida home, AG Merrick Garland finally decided to address the public on Thursday regarding the matter. Some naively hoped that he’d provide a legitimate justification for the raid, but as expected, that didn’t materialize, mostly because there was no justification.Instead, Garland danced about while revealing a few noteworthy things. One, we learned that he was the one that ordered the raid, which is not surprising given he’s a partisan who obviously holds a grudge against the former president. Two, the DOJ is asking the judge in the case to unseal the warrant,...

    The pro-life movement suffered a defeat in Kansas on Tuesday when the state overwhelmingly voted to uphold abortion “rights.” The vote in Kansas on Tuesday centered on whether or not the state would remove abortion rights protections in the State Constitution, potentially paving the way for “state lawmakers to pass far-reaching abortion restrictions, or even to pursue a ban,” according to the New York Times. With 76 percent reporting, the “No” votes to keep abortion rights in place beat the “Yes” votes by double digits – 62.2 percent versus 37.7 percent as of this writing. Both NBC News and the...

    One of the side effects of war is economic dislocation. No matter what Vladimir Putin chooses to call his war in Ukraine, it is a war, and it is dislocating markets worldwide. Most of the attention has been on the potential disruption of Russian oil and gas supplies to Europe, but a more significant problem than cold Euros is looming. Ukraine is one of the world’s leading exporters of wheat and sunflower oil. Because of Putin’s War, Ukrainian products can’t pass through the Black Sea to get to market.Fears of a global food crisis are swelling as Russian attacks on...

    Just before Easter, the Russians announced that they had accomplished all of their pre-invasion objectives and were beginning a new phase. The new phase required the abandonment of Russia’s attempt to seize control of Kiev and focus the war on gaining control of Donbas and establishing a land bridge from Russia to Crimea (read Ukraine’s Future Depends on These Three Fights That Russia Must Win and 10 Days Into Putin’s ‘New Phase’ of Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine, There Are Minor Advances but the Clock Is Ticking).

    Tuesday, it became evident that the Russian Army was abandoning territory in Ukraine that it seized shortly after Putin’s War began on February 24 (Russian Troops Retreat From Ukraine to Russia: Planned Redeployment or the Beginning of Collapse?).
