The head of the U.S. Democratic National Committee has admitted the party's brand has suffered 'damage', and argued that Democrats could be more attractive to rural voters with better messaging. 'I think what we have to do as a party is battle the damage to the Democratic brand,' DNC chair Jamie Harrison, who ran against Senator Lindsey Graham in South Carolina last year, said on Daily Beast's New Abnormal podcast. 'I experienced it on my own race, Lindsey and his crew of dark money effectively labeled me as somebody who believed in defunding the police,' he continued.

There is no brand, Harrison. There is no longer a dim party. It was hollowed out and corrupted long ago by the communists. What was once the dim party is gone...for good. And the pubbie party is following in the dim party's footsteps.

Better messaging? The party is what it is and wants what it wants. Perhaps he meant "more convincing lies". Until they give up promoting the murder of babies and violent destruction of property, just to name a couple of the big hitters, nothing will change. Especially since many of the people now have a clue.

In fact, the Democrat party has been ruined. The lunatics are running the asylum as it were, the old Dem party has been taken over by extreme radicals and openly Communist/Marxists. The fact that lifelong Dem party members will "vote blue, no matter who" should tell you a lot about their cult-like devotion. I hope they skew so far to the left that voters will eventually wake up and distance themselves from the ever increasing radical policies, but I'm not holding my breath. Funny to read the soft language from this journalist regarding the possible rebranding of the party. Of course, this is coming from the Daily Mail, which if you can believe it, is considered to be a very conservative newspaper in England. Tells you a lot about the current political state of affairs over here in England.

I’ve been watching politics for decades and, when things aren’t going well for the demonrat party, rather than honestly look at their flaws, they always come up with the same solution - fix their “messaging”. It’s never about their actions and policies. Harrison is trying to make it sound like he ran a pristine and lofty campaign but his was even dirtier than Grahams. I live in South Carolina. I heard all of the ads.

And the Democrat probably has the gall to believe he only needs to do some PR to 'fix the brand'. His problem is that the truth about that party is leaking out even though they own the media. The truth will make you free but you will be pi**ed off.

And this in the Daily Mail no less and not one peep about it in the United States of Dominion's Marxist press. Huh, that's so weird. However, not to worry Marxists, er, I mean Democrats because HR1 will get you all the Marxist votes you'll need, even all the rural votes will want to defund the police too! It's just un-Smartmatic to think otherwise.

I read the article and wondered how a person could be so cynical as to join a criminal syndicate which mercilessly attacks and exploits a group, in this case rural voters, in order to help themselves to the cash the target group members have set aside for their families and then form a money laundering scheme, call the ruse a “people’s” help group directed at their victims and hand back to the victims a fraction of the loot in the form of the of the phony social benefit; all for their victims’ vote. Then I saw the pinky signet ring - the new version of the diamond pinky ring - and realized that the Chairman of the DNC is a common thug with enough charm and an Ivy League imprimatur and a hateful, selfish, greedy and vicious heart. Communism always causes death because it is made-to-order for and always attracts murderous psychos, who pretend to be true believers.

Defunding the police, race-baiting, anti-tradition, anti-anything American ARE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!

The Catholic church of the parish of Hard is one of many in Austria which decided to fly the rainbow flag in solidarity with the LGBT community after the Vatican ruled last month that the Church couldn't bless same-sex partnerships. The powerful Vatican office responsible for defending church doctrine, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), handed down a ruling that same-sex unions could not be blessed despite their "positive elements". The office wrote that while God "never ceases to bless each of His pilgrim children in this world... he does not and cannot bless sin".

The Congresswoman questioned whether her Twitter account was suspended after she wished her followers happy Easter. But the social media platform explained the suspension as a result of the site’s algorithm. 'We use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service. In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated,' Twitter explained in a statement.

As the Christian world celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter, local ministers say they will remind their congregations that the events that took place almost 2,000 years ago remain important today. "There is nothing like the story of Easter and the reality of Christ's resurrection that demonstrates God's great love for us and the great lengths to which he has gone to take up our cause, even when we have failed to take up his," said the Rev. Martin Ankrum, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Greensburg. In the story of Christ's incarnation, life, death and resurrection, "we see that God has taken up our cause..."

Conservatives often speak of Judeo-Christian values and how the current civil war in the United States and the rest of the West is essentially a battle between those values and the left, which rejects Judeo-Christian values. They are right. But they rarely explain what Judeo-Christian values are. Yet, without an explanation, mentioning Judeo-Christian values is useless. So, let me do that now. First, a word about the term. Some Jews and Christians find the term confusing, if not objectionable, since Judaism and Christianity have different theologies. But no one speaks of Judeo-Christian heology, only of Judeo-Christian values.

After twenty minutes of dead air, Biden's Virtual Passover got underway. Biden, who can only be counted on to remain coherent for short stretches of time before launching into a random tirade, only showed up briefly. And that was the only good thing about Virtual Passover. Virtual Passover, like the Biden administration, makes no sense. But the Biden administration can’t be expected to ruin every aspect of our lives, without also ruining Passover. Kamala Harris had been delegated to take over the border crisis, and so her husband, Brentwood entertainment lawyer, Douglas Emhoff, took over the job of ruining Passover.

Supreme Court case could change the

A Supreme Court case being argued this week amid March Madness could erode the difference between elite college athletes and professional sports stars. If the former college athletes who brought the case win, colleges could end up competing for talented student athletes by offering over-the-top education benefits worth tens of thousands of dollars. And that could change the nature of college sports. At least that’s the fear of the NCAA. But the former athletes who sued say most college athletes will never play professional sports and that the NCAA’s rules capping education benefits deprive them of the ability to be rewarded for their athletic talents and hard work.

Harris' desk, which sits in her office in the West Wing of the White House, was put together using wood, copper and nails taken from the USS Constitution, which was commissioned under George Washington in 1794. The USS Constitution is one of the country's first frigates and is the oldest commissioned warship still afloat. It was launched in 1797 in Boston, Massachusetts, and now sits in Baltimore Harbor. Harris' desk has carvings of an eagle surrounded by stars from the Constitution's stern decorations.
