Disaster or outlier? Biden plummets to
36% in new Reuters/Ipsos poll
Posted by Dreadnought 5/25/2022 10:26:10 PM Post Reply
Just one week ago, this same pollster offered an outlier single-digit gap for Joe Biden’s job approval rating, 42/50. Suddenly, however, the Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll has Biden at a -23 gap and 36/59 on overall job approval. That puts Reuters/Ipsos on the other side of the outlier category, with a gap fully ten points larger than the latest survey from … Rasmussen Reports. What happened? U.S. President Joe Biden’s public approval rating fell this week to 36%, the lowest level of his presidency, as Americans suffered from rising inflation, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll completed on Tuesday. The two-day national poll found that 59% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s job performance.
Poll: More Voters Trust Republicans on
Gun Policy than Democrats
Posted by Dreadnought 5/25/2022 10:23:00 PM Post Reply
More voters trust congressional Republicans on gun policy than Democrats, a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found. The poll asked 2,005 registered voters who they “trust more to handle” gun policy. Forty-four percent trusted Republicans, while 41 percent trusted Democrats, a three-point gap and above the margin of error of two percent. Sixteen percent had no opinion. On Tuesday, 19 children and 2 adults were killed in a mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school. The shooter was 18 years of age and old enough to legally purchase a firearm. The Associated Press reported: The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District said the active shooter situation was reported
Sinema Signals She Won't Bust Filibuster
for Gun Control

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) says she doesn’t believe “that DC solutions are realistic” for stopping massacres like yesterday’s in Uvalde, Texas. NBC’s Jake Sherman said Sinema stopped reporters outside the Senate chamber because she “had something to say.” “This is rare” for her, he added. Sherman asked if Sinema would be willing to “set aside” the filibuster to force some kind of gun control measure through the evenly divided Senate. Her fellow Democrat Senator, Jon Tester of Montana, waited mere hours after Tuesday night’s slaughter to press for universal background check legislation. “Come on guys, kids got killed yesterday for Christ’s sakes,” he told colleagues this morning.

Islamabad—In Afghanistan, 1.1 million children under the age of 5 will likely face the most severe form of malnutrition this year, according to the U.N., as increasing numbers of hungry, wasting-away children are brought into hospital wards.

The father of a 10-year-old girl murdered in her Texas classroom on Tuesday has demanded to know why the gunman was able to rampage through the school for 90 minutes until he was shot dead. Jacinto Cazares's daughter Jacklyn was among the 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde shot dead by Salvador Ramos, 18. The first 911 call was received 90 minutes earlier, at 11:30am, saying a man had emerged from a crashed vehicle with a long rifle and a backpack.

'For God's sake': Joe Biden and the Texas tragedy replies

For God's sake, Mister President, don't turn this tragedy into cheap political capital. I just watched President Joe Biden take a stab at playing the role of America's "mourner in chief," a role his Democratic predecessor, Bill Clinton, managed quite well. That may, in fact, have been the only thing Clinton did that actually helped the country. For all his many failings, Clinton knew the importance of helping people cope with tragedy. Unfortunately, Joe Biden didn't crib this page from Bill Clinton's playbook. He made it partisan fairly quickly, blaming the tragedy on the "gun lobby" and "gun manufacturers." Yet he started out well.

Progressives are voicing anger at the Democratic establishment following the closely fought runoff between Jessica Cisneros and incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), leading to what could be deep divisions in the district ahead of the general election.

(Snip) As of Wednesday morning, Cuellar led Cisneros by just 177 votes, according to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office. Cuellar declared victory in the early hours of Wednesday, but Cisneros has

Steve Kerr was a man of singular talent: He could shoot three-pointers as a reliable role player. Despite his coaching accolades more recently, it’s hard for me to even give him dap since he’s had Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and an entire retinue of all-stars. Let’s be real, I could be a championship-winning coach with that roster. None of his success on the hardwood has stopped Kerry from sharing opinions on either international geopolitical issues or domestic political issues.

Senate Primary

A recount will be held for the Republican Pennsylvania Senate primary in Pennsylvania, the state’s top elections official announced on Wednesday. Dr. Mehmet Oz, the TV show host who was endorsed by former president Trump, led former hedge-fund manager Dave McCormick by 902 votes after all counties submitted unofficial vote tallies on Tuesday. An automatic vote recount is triggered under Pennsylvania law when a candidate wins by less than 0.5 percent of the vote, and Oz won the primary by 0.08 percent. “I want to emphasize that this automatic recount is intended to ensure that the count is accurate and that there is confidence in the results and outcome,”

The Democrat party can never be allowed to forget how hard it has worked to expel police officers from schools.At the state and local level, Democrats have and continue to push and push and push to remove police and leave schoolchildren defenseless.Why? Why would Democrats demand police be removed from schools and be replaced with gay porn and transsexual propaganda?I’ll answer that below… But first, never forget this… Senators Chris Murphy (CT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA), along with Representatives Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Ilhan Omar (MN), introduced [a bill] that would prohibit federal money to be used to fund police in schools.

To win any fight, we must first know our enemy. There are those who argue we are in a struggle with Marxism, though in reality, we battle the organizational and operational tenets of the Marxist tree, not the ideology itself. We know that this is not a Marxist movement because it ignores Marxism's core clientele: the workers. In fact, these people despise the Marxist's traditional constituents. Instead, they toil for a small minority of the "marginalized" in society whom middle Americans find to be fringe and anathema to their core values. Even then, their movement doesn't seek a revolution of the marginalized.

Mindless Murders Continue: After consecutive mass shootings occurring over a few days, Americans are numb from the suffering of enduring the slaughter of the innocent. Tears, hand-wringing, accusations and demands for disarming all Americans follow, like rain tracks clouds. But is broad disarmament the only answer to the slaughter of the innocents? No, and here’s why. First, America’s Birth was premised on the right to bear arms, entirely apropos for wilderness colonies where wolves and bears were plentiful, and much fare was taken in wild environs. Also, with often tenuous relations with natives, there was a need to always be ready to repulse attacks. Second, Colonial Arms keeping of arms handy

Gas prices are high everywhere. They’ve risen so much that several states have suspended their gas tax, while others are considering doing so. And then there’s Illinois. The Democrat-dominated legislature in Illinois is so magnanimous that they’re not suspending their gas tax, but they’re delaying increasing it until the end of the year. I know — how thoughtful of them. “As part of this year’s budget, Democrats delayed for six months the 2.2-cent-a-gallon gasoline tax increase that was set to take effect in July,” explains the Wall Street Journal editorial board. In 2019 Democrats doubled the gas tax to 38 cents a gallon and indexed it to inflation.”

A gradual and silent encroachment of our freedom and Federal, States’ and individual sovereignty by a globalist financial corporate cartel continues to proceed. One key aspect of our current political reality in the US is that many of our laws at the Federal level have been placed there by corporate stakeholders. Corporate lobbyists work tirelessly and relentlessly to insert legislation that benefits their industries and increases the wealth of their corporate clients and associated “stakeholders” into our federal laws and regulations, and to twist existing legislation so that it becomes a more perfect tool of their clients’ corporate interests.

It looks like the long persecution of Professor Joshua Katz by his employer Princeton University has come to an end.

The whole episode nicely exemplifies the cowardice and incompetence of the liberals who run elite institutions in the United States today.
