FTA:To begin with, no one votes in the primary elections. They were largely designed so the major parties could pick their nominees. Turnout is not only low. It can be minuscule. Since turnout is very low in primaries, Republicans need to work harder to activate their supporters for the primary. Then there will be a least 1 Republican on the ballot.

By allowing only the top two vote getters in the primaries pretty much rigged it so No Republicans can be in the general election. Just wait it’s coming to your state soon.

Poster #3, it's at my state already. Washington adopted this a few years back. Even one relative who doesn't pay much attention to what's going on was saying it was unfair.

Wake up Republicans in Colorado and other states that have recently gone Blue. This is one way Democrats consolidate their power when they get power.

The late publisher of the Washington Post, Katharine Graham, once said, “News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising.” No one knows the truth of this observation better today than the dwindling number of conservatives still clinging by their fingernails onto their social media accounts. In an increasingly blatant move toward outright censorship, America’s key social networks are uniting to suppress conservatives and boost their cherished left-wing fantasies.

The Boston Tea Party was a political protest that occurred at Griffin’s Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts. American colonists frustrated and angry at Britain for imposing “taxation without representation,” dumped 342 chests of British tea into the harbor.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday knocked reports that President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was going to be moved into solitary confinement in her district, calling the punishment “torture.” “Paul Manafort is being sent to solitary confinement in my district - Rikers Island. A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That’s what solitary confinement is. Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary,” the New York Democrat tweeted.

President Donald Trump telegraphed to the American people that Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion hoax is going international. The first hint that something of an alliance existed between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the international reach of the Deep State was provided by Michael Morell. Morell has served as both acting and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (2010-2013).

During the Japanese bombardment of Shanghai in 1932, the Austrian essayist Karl Kraus was anguishing over the placement of commas in a column. It might seem futile at such a moment, he told a friend, but “if those who are obliged to look after commas had always made sure they were in the right place, then Shanghai would not be burning.” George Orwell made a kindred observation about the importance of having the courage to call things by their real names. Euphemism, the counterfeit of good manners, is the enemy of truth, which is the only ally worth having.

In June of 2016, the British people voted to reject the European Union’s authoritarian rule over the UK and reassert their sovereignty. And so, Brexit was a big winner at the polls. But two years later, Britain remains a vassal state to the bureaucratic minions of the EU. All due to the inaction of the ruling Conservative Party, also known as the Tories. A party once shepherded by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who said: “I had the patriotic conviction that, given great leadership of the sort I heard from Winston Churchill in the radio broadcasts to which we listened, there was almost nothing that the British people could not do.”
Ex-FBI Lawyer: Carter Page FISA application approved in unusual way by McCabe, Yates, and Baker 6 replies

A former top lawyer for the FBI described to lawmakers the “unusual” way the surveillance request targeting former Trump campaign associate Carter Page was handled by top leadership at the Justice Department and FBI, according to a transcript released this week. On Aug. 31, 2018, former FBI Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson said she was normally responsible for signing off on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications before they reached the desk of her superiors for approval. Anderson said the “linear path” those applications typically take was upended in October 2016, with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates signing off on the application before she did.

There’s an old saying in sports that “you can’t tell the players without a scorecard.” That same adage applies to Middle East politics. For example, in Saudi Arabia, the English daily newspaper Arab News – or “The Green Flash” as it is called by ex-patriots because of its green-tinted cover pages – reports that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces “intercepted and destroyed two missiles launched from Yemen by Iran-aligned Houthi militias on Monday.”

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke took an unconventional approach to reaching out to African-American voters Friday, meeting with a small group representing a community of slave descendants in South Carolina and saying white Americans do not know the full story of slavery. O'Rourke spent Friday at a Baptist church in Beaufort, S.C., where the former Texas congressman met with leaders of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, a culture of coastal slave descendants whose separation from the mainland allowed them to retain much of their African heritage, including a unique dialect and skills such as cast-net fishing and basket weaving.

Newly elected far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca has stated that she is "excited to usher" in communism "by any means necessary." CdeBaca, who won in an upset runoff election earlier this month, said in late March during a candidate forum for City Council District 9: I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.

Turning around in Walmart, I saw a large exhibit of Listerine mouthwash. The exhibit was covered in rainbows stating that it was in celebration of LGBTQ (and other alphabets that I can't remember) pride. The wording on the exhibit preached to us about love, respect and anti-bigotry. Why is Johnson & Johnson which owns Listerine making a big deal about portraying perverted lifestyles engaged in by less than 3% of the population as something beautiful and crucially important?

Two health professionals penned an op-ed in The New York Times on Sunday that despite society’s shift on marijuana use, it does not change the fact that the drug is not safe for high school and college students. Kenneth L. Davis, the president and chief executive of the Mount Sinai Health System, and Mary Jeanne Kreek, the head of Laboratory of the Biology of Addictive Diseases at Rockefeller University, cited studies that show a “deleterious impact on cognitive development in adolescents.” The column said marijuana use can impair "executive function, processing speed, memory, attention span and concentration." They said the explanation is simple: the adolescent brain

"It is a great advantage to a president,” said the 30th of them, “and a major source of safety to the country, for him to know he is not a great man.” Or, Calvin Coolidge would say today, a great woman. While today’s incumbent advertises himself as an “extremely stable genius” and those who would replace him promise national transformation, attention should be paid to the granular details of presidential politics, which suggest that a politics of modesty might produce voting changes where they matter, and at least 270 electoral votes for a Democrat.

Is there a kind of usurpation of congressional authority? Since 1976, when Congress declared a National Emergency Act, Gerald Ford signed it, there have been fifty, the presidents have declared 59 emergencies. 32 are still in place. We still have national emergencies in place about Macedonia, about Lebanon, about the Iran hostage crisis. Is it time for Congress to start much more seriously overseeing
