    The Mississippi Republican Party is welcoming some new members and all of them were elected public offices as Democrats or Independents in this most recent election cycle. The Mississippi Republican Party Chairman says he doesn’t expect this will be the last time they are welcoming new members to the GOP. “We have had a relentless focus on switching conservative Democrats over to the Republican party," explained MSGOP Chairman Lucien Smith. "They recognize increasingly that there is only one party that represents the conservative values of our state and that is the Republican party.” All eight of the latest party switchers...

    “Hi, I’m Arielle, I’m a lesbian and I don’t think gender is a social construct. I don’t think cis-straight white men are evil. I don’t believe that general preferences are transphobic or that there are 97 genders.” “I don’t think that male sex offenders belong in women’s prisons. I don’t think it’s normal for people to be praised for walking around with shirts that say, ‘Kill TERFs.” They’re particularly concerned about a loud subset of the LGBT community that’s been trying to argue that biological men who purport to be transgender women have the “right” to compete in women’s sports...

  • Advice to Democrats: Forget Iowa and New Hampshire

    02/16/2020 4:59:38 PM PST · by Libloather · 36 replies
    Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams hit the nail on the head, telling voters not to let two small, virtually all-white states tell them whom to pick as the Democratic presidential nominee: ‘We need a more representative sample’ — Exclusive: @staceyabrams believes that our Iowa and New Hampshire first primary system is silencing voters of color She makes the logical case that only 65 delegates have been selected (distributed rather evenly among several candidates) — out of a grand total of 1,991 who would need to be pledged to win the nomination on the first ballot....

    Republican strategist Kimberly Klacik said after winning the primary election to run for the late congressman Elijah Cummings’s old seat in Baltimore that she won because of her “grassroots efforts," and she added that some of President Trump’s policies will help her historically blue district. “What I try to remind people is if you take a look at President Trump — take a look at prison reform, First Step Act, he’s actually just rewinding and fixing what was broken with that crime bill that led to so much mass incarceration that you really see in the greater Baltimore area,” Klacik...
  • Virginia Democrats Storm Out After Black Pastor Condemns Abortion, Gay Marriage: ‘Woe To Anyone Who Harms An Innocent Child’

    State Democrats stormed out of the Virginia House chamber Tuesday after a black pastor condemned abortion and gay marriage through prayer. Rev. Robert M. Grant Jr. of The Father’s Way Church in Warrenton, Virginia, addressed the Democrat-controlled House of Delegates with an opening prayer that condemned abortion and gay marriage, Media Research Center reported. Grant’s prayer caused members to storm out of the chamber and for one member to yell, “Is this a prayer or a sermon?” The pastor defended his actions by saying the “state house belongs to all the citizens.” “And all the citizens have a voice,” Grant...
  • San Francisco car break-ins are so common that the city's district attorney is proposing reimbursing residents whose windows are smashed

    02/13/2020 4:14:54 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 41 replies
    San Francisco's district attorney is proposing creating an auto-burglary-assistance fund that would reimburse residents for the cost required to repair shattered windows from break-ins. The DA, Chesa Boudin, is proposing using $1.5 million from the mayor's office to fill the fund. If it passes, it could be the country's first fund of this kind. "Auto burglaries are the No. 1 way people in San Francisco are directly impacted by crime," Boudin said in the San Francisco Chronicle. "While we know there's more work to do, this is something we can do today to step up and support victims." The city...

    I think those of us on the left need to take a long look in the mirror and have an honest conversation about what’s going on. If you had told me three years ago that I would ever attend a Donald Trump rally, I would have laughed and assured you that was never going to happen. Heck, if you had told me I would do it three months ago, I probably would have done the same thing. So, how did I find myself among 11,000-plus Trump supporters in Manchester, New Hampshire? Believe it or not, it all started with knitting....

    .....So I headed over an hour and a half before the doors were scheduled to open (which was 4 hours before Trump was set to take the stage) and the line already stretched a mile away from the entrance to the arena. As I waited, I chatted with the folks around me. And contrary to all the fears expressed, they were so nice! I was not harassed or intimidated and was never in fear of my safety even for a moment. These were average everyday people. They were veterans, school teachers, and small business owners and they had come from...

    Joe Biden had a strong hold on the African-American vote. "Just wait till South Carolina," they said. "His supporters will come out in droves; he'll catch the momentum, clinch the nomination, and be on his way to the White House." That ain't happening. Now that Biden is on his way down, and perhaps out, where will his African-American supporters go? Bernie?--No, thanks. Pete--Are you kidding? Warren--No way. Here's a novel idea: Donald Trump! Who says African-Americans have to support the Democrat? What have the Dems ever done for them? This is a great opportunity for Trump to court African-American voters....

    The Federalist ^ | February 9, 2020 | Madeline Osburn
    Democrat strategist James Carville warned that the smug, urbanist mindset is causing the Democratic Party to be distracted by the wrong issues. Democratic strategist James Carville unleashed on 2020 Democratic candidates for pulling the party too far left and warned Democrats are at risk of seeming “culturally arrogant” to the working class. His rant began on a viral MSNBC segment this week after the chaos of the Iowa caucuses, then he extended his admonishments in an interview with Vox.Vox Writer Sean Illing seemed to question whether Carville’s strong reaction was warranted. Are Democrats “really destroying the party?” he asked. “What...

    Democrats find themselves in an unenviable position for the 2020 election: they have to convince the American public that they don’t know how bad they have it at a time when we have it pretty good. Their task is like me trying to convince my 2-year-old daughter that she doesn’t really like chocolate ice cream – an impossibility. But when the alternative is to run a campaign extolling the virtues of socialism and the need for government to take life decision-making powers away from individuals, talking people out of believing reality seems like an easier task. The economy is churning...

    One of the most revealing things about the leftist mindset is the usual leftist's lack of self-awareness about his own intolerance, hatefulness and inclusiveness -- unless you distort all those terms to whitewash the reality. I will never forget reading (and writing about) the unfortunate experience of Professor Janice Price, an education instructor at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. The school suspended Price and cut her salary for subjecting her students to a "hostile environment." Her sin was placing issues of Teachers in Focus magazine on the table in the back of her classroom that contained articles written from a...
  • Trump’s Historic Wildwood Rally – 26% of Attendees Were Democrats, 10% Didn’t Vote in 2016

    President Donald Trump’s rallies continue to attract a broad coalition. While Democrats are trying to out-compete one another by moving further and further to the left, alienating many voters in the process, Trump pitched the GOP as a big tent party last night. And that shows in his audience. Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale polls the audience at all of Trump’s rallies, and during last night’s rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, the figures showed Trump attracting Democrats and the previously politically-apathetic. “10.4% of attendees didn’t vote in 2016,” Parsale wrote in a tweet. And 26.3% were Democrats. While New Jersey...

    You want to see just how screwed up our world has become? Look no further than this story from corn country, Iowa, where a felon, convicted of no less than 15 sexual assaults against children aged 1 to 13, has turned justice on its head by declaring that he is now a woman. That is all the prosecutors and court had to hear. He/she/it/they are now a free man/woman/thing. The message we are hearing from the courts is clear: “Man bad, woman good.” So, I guess the surest route to world peace is the castration of all males at birth....

    Have you heard that the president has been impeached? Seriously, the trial is happening right now in the U.S. Senate. I’m kidding. Of course, you can’t escape the news because it’s the only thing the “news” is talking about. We’re in the middle of the most choreographed foregone conclusion in history and the media is treating it like a whodunit. But the suspense is akin to a murder mystery where there are two people in a room and one of them ends up dead. We know the outcome. It’s time to move on.But while the press is single-minded in their...
