Here’s The Single Most Important Question
2024 GOP Presidential Candidates Must Answer
Posted by Moritz55 6/6/2023 4:16:11 PM Post Reply
There is one fundamental question that any candidate vying for the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 2024 must answer — but that as of yet has gone largely unaddressed, at least publicly, as the field spars over significant but ultimately subordinate issues. The question is this: How will you win the general election under the present voting system? An inability to answer this question clearly, compellingly, and convincingly imperils Republican odds of retaking the White House, no matter how favorable their prospects might look come next November. It is incumbent on anyone who wants to earn the Republican presidential nomination to answer this question at the outset,
'Embarrassing' dissent cable shows Biden
'allowed' Afghanistan to collapse: Rep Issa
Posted by Moritz55 6/6/2023 4:02:58 PM Post Reply
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., is slamming the Afghanistan dissent cable to which Secretary of State Antony Blinken allowed congressional access Tuesday as "embarrassing" and saying that it debunks the Biden administration's narrative that it was caught off guard by the country's swift collapse in 2021. Issa, who serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told Fox News Digital that he was the first committee member to view the dissent channel cable from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul and Washington's response. The State Department’s "dissent channel" allows for contrary views to be expressed by officials. The document, signed by 23 staffers and diplomats, warned about the possibility of a rapid Taliban advance

Independent journalist and former congressional candidate Laura Loomer posted a video of her confronting disgraced former FBI director James Comey at his book signing event on Monday. The confrontation led to Comey leaving the stage and Loomer briefly detained by law enforcement. “Last night I confronted the Criminal former FBI Director James Comey about the #DurhamReport findings at Comey’s book signing/book tour for his new crime novel,” Loomer tweeted with the video. “I asked Comey why a criminal like himself is now writing crime novels
Poll: Independents Lean Toward Donald
Trump over Joe Biden
Posted by Imright 6/6/2023 2:48:59 PM Post Reply
More independents prefer former President Donald Trump than President Joe Biden in a head-to-head matchup, the latest survey from The Economist/YouGov found. The survey asked respondents who they would support between Biden and Trump if the 2024 general election was held now. The two potential challengers are tied across the board with 39 percent support each, followed by nine percent who said they would not vote, seven percent who said “other,” and five percent who remain unsure. However, Biden has a three-point advantage among registered voters, specifically.

The owner of two of San Francisco's largest hotels has stopped making mortgage payments on the properties and will let them go into foreclosure as historic crime rates continue to deter tourists. Park Hotels and Resorts announced on Monday that it stopped making payments on its $725 million loan due in November for the Hilton San Francisco Union Square and Parc 55 — the largest and fourth-largest hotels in the city, respectively. 'After much thought and consideration, we believe it is in the best interest for Park's stockholders to materially reduce our current exposure to the San Francisco market,' CEO Thomas Baltimore Jr said in a statement.
Unclear Who Blew The Kakhovka Dam Near

The big news today, of course, is the destruction of the very large Kakhovka Dam, which is located on the major Dnieper river near the Zaporozhiye Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP). The waters of the dam are critical for cooling functions at the ZNPP, but also for flood control the rest of the way downstream to the Black Sea. There are major population areas downstream that are being evacuated. (snip) I’ve seen discussion of the likelihood that one side or the other might blow the dam. For the Ukrainians, the idea would be to precipitate a nuclear event at the ZNPP and blame the Russians. For the Russians
Disney Proves DeSantis’ Point By Going
After Military Guests
Posted by formerNYer 6/6/2023 1:47:52 PM Post Reply
Disney was not accountable to anyone,” observed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in his announcement kicking off his presidential campaign. “You know, it’s human nature: If there’s no accountability over any individual or entity, of course they’re going to behave differently than if you have normal accountability.” The truth of DeSantis’ words is perfectly demonstrated by Disney’s recent treatment of guests at Shades of Green, a military-owned hotel at Walt Disney World. Disney’s actions say a lot about how a company — one that used to be notable for its patriotism in the days of Walt — now regards U.S. Armed Forces families and veterans.

One of Lia Thomas' former teammates at the University of Pennsylvania has slammed her alma mater for 'shutting down' any criticism of the pre-op 6-foot-1 biological male's presence on the school's female swimming team. In a new interview with the Daily Wire's Matt Walsh, Paula Scanlan accused the university of wanting student athletes to 'be quiet' and said 'they did it in a very effective way'. 'They continued to tell us that our opinions were wrong and if we had an issue about it, we were the problem and it's frightening and your future job is on the line,' Scanlan said in her interview.

Born on March 5, 1940, in Salvador, Bahia, and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Gilberto was virtually unknown to the wider public when she was recruited by producer Creed Taylor, saxophonist Stan Getz and her then-husband, guitarist Joao Gilberto, and to lend her vocals on two songs for Getz/Gilberto. The album, recorded in 1963, would have a huge impact on the popularization of bossa nova music, in no small measure due to of one of those songs featuring Astrud: “The Girl from Ipanema,” released as a single in 1964, sold more than 5 million copies, reached No. 5 on t
FBI Refuses to Give Physical Document

Bribery Scheme, Now Claim “Ongoing Investigation”…

Here we go again with the ever-familiar silo defense. The FBI is refusing to hand over the unclassified FD-1023 stating there is an ongoing investigation using the confidential human source who made allegations outlined in the document. Remember, the allegations and the statement record was created in July of 2020, almost three years ago. Prior to last week, the FBI refused to say the 6-page unclassified document existed. After House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer told FBI Director Chris Wray he had already seen the unclassified document via a whistleblower, then Comey admitted the FBI indeed had it. Today, the FBI is refusing to release the document,
House Republicans Target Gas Stove Regulations,
Power of Administrative State
Posted by earlybird 6/6/2023 1:27:25 PM Post Reply
After repeatedly failing to overturn Biden administration regulations in existing legislation, House Republicans are taking the next steps in their attempt to exert authority over the administrative state. Lawmakers discussed a series of bills intended to reach those ends during a June 5 Rules Committee hearing. “The Constitution articulates where the laws are made. It’s here in Congress,” said Committee Chair Tom Cole (R-Okla.) in his opening remarks. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.), by contrast, said the proposals show that the House Republican majority “once again prioritizes right-wing culture wars over the American people.” Right-leaning ideology prioritizes individual liberty over the government intervention preferred by the left.
Peggy Noonan may be right—and let’s
hope she is
Posted by DW626 6/6/2023 1:25:31 PM Post Reply
On Monday, David Zuckerman wrote a good piece about Peggy Noonan and her WSJ editorial concerning former President Donald Trump. Noonan argues that electing Donald Trump again would destroy the Republican party. Peggy may be right, and I hope that she is. Trump’s success in 2016 was, in large part, due to the way that he took the mechanisms of the Republican political machine and used them to secure victory. He ran a third-party-style campaign within the structure of the Republican party. The “party” as a corporate entity was against him, but grassroots Republicans in name and philosophy were all in for candidate Donald Trump.

It’s June 2023. Big Tech announced this week that they are rolling back “misinformation” measures on the 2020 election and COVID policies. This comes three years after the COVID pandemic and nearly three years after the massively controversial 2020 presidential election. NOW you can discuss these subjects on social media.

You bet someone will use this for campaign fodder, especially if Gov. Ron DeSantis is involved. Remember when some illegals arrived on Martha’s Vineyard, and every white liberal on the island panicked? They were whining about how this infusion of new people, there were fewer than 50, would essentially break the island budget-wise. The liberals deported the illegals off the island to a military base, exposing the Left for their rank hypocrisy regarding immigrants. Affluent white progressives want illegal aliens for the census count to increase their foothold in Congress by creating new districts represented by members of Congress of similar racial and cultural backgrounds.

The PGA Tour has done a complete about-face by merging with rival LIV Golf less than one year after PGA commissioner Jay Monahan told reporters that such an arrangement was 'off the table.' In a shocking move that was unknown to PGA stars and LIV commissioner Greg Norman until Tuesday morning, the PGA and European Tours have signed an agreement with the Saudi-backed circuit to combine their businesses into a new, yet-to-be-named company. Most importantly, the merger ends the ongoing litigation between the two sides. Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed. The move represents a major victory for LIV Golf,

On July 16, 2018, the BBC summarized the Western media's fast-developing distaste for former President Trump: "Trump sides with Russia against FBI at Helsinki summit." The BBC storyline was that "U.S. intelligence agencies had concluded in 2016 that Russia was behind an effort to tip the scale of the U.S. election against Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorized campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media." So, at a news conference after the summit, President Trump was asked if he believed his own intelligence agencies or the Russian President when it came to the allegations of meddling in the elections.
Flooding at Mar-a-Lago Raises Suspicions
Among Federal Prosecutors
Posted by mc squared 6/6/2023 11:07:09 AM Post Reply
Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prosecutors questioned at least one witness after an employee at Mar-a-Lago drained the Florida resort’s pool in October and ended up flooding a room full of computer servers that maintained surveillance video, according to a leak to CNN. Jack Smith has been investigating Trump after he stored presidential records at Mar-a-Lago and whether the former president tried to obstruct the probe. The IT equipment and servers were not damaged by the flooding, however, federal prosecutors still found it suspicious. Since the flooding happened after Trump received a subpoena for classified records and surveillance footage, prosecutors may use it to build an obstruction conspiracy case, CNN reported.

South Korea hopes to win UN Security Council seat replies

South Korea is aiming to secure one of the rotating seats on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) at a vote in the General Assembly on Tuesday. A successful campaign for one of the 10 non-permanent seats will give Seoul the opportunity to put issues that are critical to South Korea at the top of the UN's agenda. The result is not a foregone conclusion, however, as China, North Korea and Russia are likely to oppose South Korea's candidacy, in a bid to further their own geopolitical interests. Five of the 10 non-permanent seats are available for two-year terms from 2024.

A few months ago, Mike Rowe stumbled upon a 2011 video of himself speaking in front of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee during the Obama administration about the mindset of government toward skilled trades. His argument was that skilled trades were the key to saving our economy, not those jobs that require a four-year degree. His argument fell on deaf ears. So he went again in April of 2014, this time testifying before the House Committee on Natural Resources to discuss the opportunities for skilled trade workers in the energy industry.

Inan astonishing turn, furious Americans now revolt against our PC corporate masters, as first “Bud Lite” and now Target implode into financial free-fall. But other suicide corps also leap into the melee, to prove their woke bona fides like terrorist bombers boasting dynamite jackets.
