It’s not exactly earthshaking. But it is politically revealing. On Sunday, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he will not support a Donald Trump reelection bid in 2024. [Snip] Next Sunday the former president will make his first public appearance and speech since leaving the White House at the annual CPAC conference of conservatives

The person who will decide whether or not Trump runs in 2024 will be Donald Trump himself. What other pols want or don't want is irrelevant. IMO the outcome of the '22 elections will have a lot to do with it.

Not up to any of the arrogant governors to say. It is up to Trump and us if we want him to run. I for one hope he does. I hope he leaves Javanka home and takes the gloves off.

Nothing new, Hutchinson was never a fan of Trump. ...just like Romney, McConnell, Kasich, Ryan, McCarthy, Flake...one thing for sure Trump does bring out the fake republicans....they prefer open borders, high gas prices, corrupt government...

True to its unpredictable form, 2020’s Election Day became Election Night and then Election Week and likely Election Month. Maybe more. [Snip] Barring some major surprise and given the small changes that vote recounts historically provide, it seems likely that Joe Biden will officially become president-elect later this month around the birthday that will make him at 78 the oldest man ever to become president of these United States. But what does that really mean? News flash for euphoric Biden supporters: much less than meets the eye

American elections, especially presidential ones, are specifically designed to create deep divisions across society, camps labeled Us and Them. You may have noticed this in the tumultuous 2016 upset shockwave that has endured ever since. In this cycle, the election featured two dozen Democrats and a lone Republican who out-talked and out-tweeted them all. In terms of the work put into campaigning, this cycle has been no contest. The 74-year-old Donald Trump has campaigned basically nonstop since the convention in late August.

While national attention is riveted by the presidential horse race, a more important contest — or series of contests — is unfolding for control of the Senate.

To put it mildly, 2020 has been one weird year. And these presidential campaigns are no exception. A most striking difference in the current presidential campaigns of President Donald Trump and Joe Biden is the stark contrast in the efforts put forth by these two men in their 70s. [Snip] Some suspect Biden is no longer up to the truly grinding schedule of a real presidential campaign. If that’s the case, is he honestly up to real presidential pressures?

Americans cannot agree on much these days, but one source of unanimity is that aging is better than the alternative. However, one of the most striking yet less-noticed facts of contemporary politics is that Americans have also shown a striking affinity for selecting — and keeping — old people in political office. Really old people. [Snip] The median age of all Americans is 38.2 years, less than half Joe Biden’s. The coincidental advanced ages of the nation’s current political leaders have raised all kinds of serious new questions, including ideological rigidity, stale policies and mental and physical

It didn’t take long for this election’s first official October surprise to occur. Less than 22 hours into the new month, President Donald Trump tweeted that he and his wife, Melania, had tested positive for COVID-19. [Snip] Before that came a videotape with former Vice President Joe Biden appearing to call members of the military “stupid bastards.” And you can pretty much count on more such attempts to influence the November presidential election’s outcome, although the sources will likely be masked to make verification

Now’s her chance. When Kamala Harris was chosen as Joe Biden’s running mate back in August, she was portrayed as a younger pioneering partner who would bring new energy and followers to the 2020 Democratic presidential ticket. [Snip] given Biden’s unusually low-key political effort this time, Harris has been largely invisible. Token visits here and there. Now comes her largest opportunity — and biggest, most dangerous challenge. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Harris will be the prominent opponent of President Trump’s third Supreme Court nominee,

In theory, deploying and/or withdrawing U.S. military forces abroad is all about this country’s national security. In practice, however, politics is always close by. And in this election year, both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are taking credit for troop decisions. Biden’s campaign claim that he was in charge of withdrawing 150,000 U.S. service members from Iraq in 2011 is what Mark Twain would call “a stretcher.” Trump made reducing foreign military involvements a major

Joe Biden would be 78 years old by Inauguration Day in January, seven years beyond the average lifespan of a male born in 1942. He had two brain aneurysms in the 1980s. In his 17-month journey to the Oval Office, the Democratic nominee has made scores of claims and dozens of promises. [Snip] Like Hillary Clinton four years ago, Biden has not made himself available for much media questioning. So, Biden’s news conference last week was a rare opportunity for diligent reporters to probe the plans, thoughts and ideas of the man who would be the oldest ever to assume the nation’s highest office.

Hunter Biden had a controversial affair with his brother Beau's grieving widow Hallie, while exchanging raunchy texts, 'partying', and even renting a house with her sister, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. Hallie Biden's older sister, Elizabeth Secundy, who was recently separated from her husband of 15 years, referred to Hunter as her 'prince' and told him she loved him, in a series of text messages dating back to 2016. The pair's relationship was revealed in files and emails recovered from Hunter's laptop - the contents of which became public last year after it was abandoned at a Delaware computer shop.

A public school system in New York has introduced a new curriculum to teach that 'all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism', and show kindergarten classes videos of black children shot and killed by police, instructing them about the dangers of police brutality. Buffalo's schools are expected to follow lesson plans devised by Fatima Morrell, the associate superintendent for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Initiatives. Morrell's lesson plans, obtained by City Journal, teach pupils and their teachers how to be, in her words, more 'woke.'

Dozens of House Democrats are calling on President Biden to relinquish sole control over the country’s nuclear arsenal and the ability to launch a strike using those weapons. Politico reports that the Democrats, led by Rep. Jimmy Panetta (CA) and Rep. Ted Lieu (CA), wrote a letter warning that “vesting one person” with the authority to initiate a nuclear war “entails real risks.” “While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter explains.

On paper, the Democrats have a tenuous hold on power in Washington. Their president is a cipher with severely diminished mental capacities, the Senate is a 50-50 tie, and they hold the narrowest House majority in decades. Nevertheless, the Democrats see what could be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and are pressing forward with their most radical agenda since they seceded in 1861. Among other things, the Democrats are trying to repeal, in effect, the First Amendment, by barring conservative speech–or, rather, speech that is not consistently left-wing–from the public square. We have seen this in the moves against conservatives and other independent voices by

Biden has made it clear that his number one mission as president is to undo everything the Trump administration accomplished over the last four years. His newest cancellation simply does not make sense. Biden’s administration recently cancelled Operation Talon, a Trump administration program aimed at removing convicted sex offenders living in the United States illegally. Though the program seems to be something everyone should support, it clearly isn’t. Why would anyone want sex offenders to remain in the country?

On Tuesday, current and former Capitol Police officials testified at a joint hearing of the Senate Homeland Security and Rules committees about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. The law enforcement officers claimed that they had been prepared to face a potentially violent protest, but they said the rioters caught them off guard. “We properly planned for a mass demonstration with possible violence. What we got was a military-style coordinated assault on my officers and a violent takeover of the Capitol building,” former U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Steven Sund testified. He pushed back on claims that USCP was not prepared for the riot.

Last month, President Biden signed a series of executive orders undermining fossil fuels, on the grounds the “climate crisis” forced his hand. “We can’t wait any longer. We see with our own eyes. We know it in our bones. It is time to act.” Within days, most of the country was seeing “with our own eyes” and feeling “in our bones” a cold wave so severe that five million people lost electricity and, in a special irony, nearly half of the ballyhooed wind turbines in Texas, which had risen to supply 23% of her energy, were left frozen (and inoperable).
