Rats Leaving a Sinking Ship: More Democratic
House Retirements on the Way

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 5/7/2021 7:29:02 PM

A combination of factors is driving a wave of Democratic retirements in the House as Republicans look to flip the chamber in 2022. The census is giving deep-red Texas and Florida another congressional district. And Republican-dominated state legislatures will be able to draw maps that make red districts redder and force two Democrats to vie for the same House seat. Democrats will get their chance to make blue districts bluer in New York, Illinois, and California, so any bellyaching they do will be mostly subdued — except where they can claim GOP racism in drawing districts in states of the old South.

One wonders if they are leaving because of redistricting or because Rebublican legislators are making voter fraud much harder?

Same old establishment crap about Democrat moderates and redistricting. Not a word about angry voters and terrible Biden policies. Even if elections were legit, the Dems wouldn't be panicking as this crappy writer says they are, without bigger reasons than given here. And the mainstreamers are writing similar garbage to trick us into playing election with them again.

I keep reading replies, "without cheating Democrats can't win!" A partial truth as what they do are criminal acts committed against state and federal laws. Jill Stein's recount exposed it in 2012 and now you see drop boxes with no security, ballots with no signature or residency verification, ballots with no postmarks and counting of ballots going on for dats after the polls close. The voting machine fraud is an entirely different subject and Dominion not turning over the subpoenaed entry codes soeaks volumes about criminality. But not law enforcement or judicial will touch up? Be careful what laws you chose not to enforce.

The CCP and the American Democrat Party are the two most evil institutions in today's world. The Democrats had an arrow to defeat Trump called vote fraud. But it was missing the tip. That was provided by the Communists. That is how the world got COVID 19. The increasing realization that a repeat performance is going to be very difficult is a major reason many of them are packing it in.

Its better to not run than to run in a race that you know you will lose. Its hard to leverage loser into something better. Quit a congress critter and that you can leverage into higher office or a cushy job. Then there is Charlie Crist......... Pelosi can stay in office until she assumes room temperature, so long as her district remains intact.

A read of the entire article tells us that some have plans to try to move up - to governorships, to the Senate. Democrats only just plain leave when a hearse takes them away. Or maybe a scandal that is just too big to bury.

#13, if you don't like the way the party is behaving, why don't you do something about it besides complaining? Are you working in your district to get fresh, honest and true public servants elected? Are you organizing people in your community who want to see change? Are you calling on others to get involved to push our current representatives to actually represent us? What are you doing besides growing roots on your couch and preaching to the choir about your disappointment? Everyone HERE should be actively working for change!! The Dems are always working for their goals. They want power and will do anything for it. We, on the other hand, expect someone ELSE to fix things for us. But we NEVER seem to realize that there is NO savior or cavalry coming to our rescue. WE have to fix things. Nobody else will.

It’s not getting much play right now, but Canada is an absolute mess. In some parts of the country, the tyrannical mitigation measures put in place by the government to supposedly combat COVID-19 are so bad that they’d make New York blush. A dramatic new video has just been released by independent, conservative journalist Ezra Levant of Rebel News showing the arrest of a Christian pastor for “inciting” people to go to church. Apparently, a SWAT team was used to arrest him after he left his church service. The churchgoers had initially expelled the police from the church building, but they returned in force.

Going back to the late 1920s, every single child raised in America has intersected in some way with products from Walt Disney: We’ve watched the movies and TV shows, sung the songs, worn the clothes, and visited the theme parks. Through it all, Disney stood for wholesome family entertainment. That is no longer the case. Disney is a hardcore leftists corporation that is pushing its politics on children and training its employees to be white-hating racists or self-loathing white people. It’s time to give up Disney.

KABUL, Afghanistan — A bomb exploded near a girl’s school in a majority Shiite district of west Kabul on Saturday, killing at least 30 people, many them young pupils between 11 and 15 years old, Afghan government spokesmen said. The Taliban condemned the attack apparently aimed at civilians, and denied any responsibility. The explosion is being investigated, said Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian who added the death toll could rise further. Ambulances were rushing to evacuate wounded from the scene of the blast near Syed Al-Shahda school, in the Shiite majority neighborhood of Dasht-e-Barchi, Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian said.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Friday banning the teaching of critical race theory in public schools and universities. "Now more than ever, we need policies that bring us closer together – not rip us apart. As governor, I firmly believe that not one cent of taxpayer money should be used to define and divide young Oklahomans by their race or sex," Stitt, a Republican, said in a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner. The measure prohibits schools from teaching students that "one race or sex is inherently superior to another" and that "an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist

LONDON — Britain's governing Conservative Party made further inroads in the north of England on Friday, winning a special election in the post-industrial town of Hartlepool for a parliamentary seat that the main opposition Labour Party had held since 1974. Managing to present themselves as the party of change despite having led the U.K. for 11 years, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservatives extended their grip on parts of England that had been Labour strongholds for decades, if not a century. Many of these seats that have flipped from red to blue voted heavily in 2016 for Britain’s departure from the European Union.

On Wednesday, Rep. Mark Green (R-TN), a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and a combat veteran, introduced new legislation to ban critical race theory (CRT) from being taught at military service academies. “Critical Race Theory is based on a massive and purposeful misunderstanding of the American founding, American history, and America as it exists today,” Green said in a press statement. “This is a Marxist ideology created to tear American institutions down. It teaches Americans and members of the Armed Services to judge one another by the color of their skin instead of by the ‘content of their character.’

The Tennessee General Assembly has banned the teaching of critical race theory, passing a law at the very end of the legislative session to withhold funding from public schools that teach about white privilege. Republicans in the House made the legislation a last-minute priority, introducing provisions that ban schools from instructing students that one race bears responsibility for the past actions against another, that the United States is fundamentally racist or that a person is inherently privileged or oppressive due to their race. Similar proposals surfaced in other states this year, including one in Idaho that has been signed into law by the governor. Texas Republicans

As we previously reported, the jobs report came out today and it was a disaster for the Biden regime. Not only was it bad, it was so much lower than what they’d predicted it would be, Axios described it as the biggest miss in the history of the report. Their reactions to it immediately showed they had no understanding of what the problem was or why it was so bad — that at least in part, one has to consider that people are not returning to work because of the extension of the unemployment benefits.

Confident that the Biden Administration’s policies would produce a robust jobs report for April, liberal media ran headlines and stories promising job growth numbers that proved to exceed reality by more than seven hundred thousand, and as much as 1.7 million. As reported, Friday’s U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report reveals that the unemployment rate increased slightly in April as the ranks of the unemployed grew by 102,000, with the month’s job growth failing to reach even half that of recent months: “Contrary to bullish expectations, the unemployment rate actually ticked up a tenth of a point to 6.1 percent in April

Democratic state Rep.

Senate Bill 29, abhorred by fellow Democrats, would require the University Interscholastic League to force students to play on the sports teams based on their biological sex instead of their gender identity. The bill, which already passed in the Senate, is a priority of Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. Dutton, who chairs the House Public Education committee

Genetically modified mosquitoes have been released for the first time in the United States as part of an experiment to combat insect-borne diseases such as Dengue fever, yellow fever, and the Zika virus. UK-based biotechnology firm Oxitec, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said it released the mosquitoes in six locations in Monroe County’s Florida Keys: two on Cudjoe Key, one on Ramrod Key, and three on Vaca Key. It’s part of an effort to help tackle a disease-transmitting invasive mosquito population—the Aedes aegypti mosquito species—that’s responsible for “virtually all mosquito-borne diseases transmitted to humans,” according to the company.
