Seventy-eight percent of senior Capitol Hill aides believe Republicans will regain the House in 2022, up 12 percent from April, according to a poll released Monday. The Punchbowl News poll also included responses by party, which showed 57 percent of Democrat Hill staffers believe Republicans will regain control. Additionally, 99 percent of the Republicans on the Hill believe their party will regain control of the House, ending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) short four-year reign of trying to push through her radical, one-sided agenda.

Unfortunately there are some Republicans who will do their best to see that it doesn't happen.

I don't share their confidence. Until we take positive steps to secure our elections, 2022 will be a repeat of 2020 all over again. You can bet that those that want to make every illegal vote and every bogus ballot count will be improving their fraudulent processes. I don't see much happening on our side except for a few states right now.

I'd like to use that line from Tombstone: "...and H-ll's coming with us!"... but the "kick back and clink the wine glasses" attitude of the 99% scares the heck out of me.

We've seen this before, Republicans taking the House and/or the Senate. Then what? RINOS like Tim Ryan come out of the woodwork, promises are forgotten, brown nosing the MSM to get on the Sunday news shows begins and taking thinly disguised bribes from lobbyists continues. We need a brand new party to replace the sclerotic one we now have.

This is where we can power play and cut everything off that the democrats want to do to destroy the U.S. It would be great if President Trump runs for congress, becomes the speaker. I do fear if Kevin McCarthy becomes speaker, he will be like Paul Ryan. Remember, he backed Liz Cheney. Kevin McCarthy is a RINO.

In the past election, many last minute changes were made to the election rules in individual states that removed procedures for preventing voting fraud. After the ciaos in the last election state legislatures acted to restore integrity to their elections. There was voting fraud in the last election, as in every election. But, the rule changes made it impossible to prove or disprove it was extensive enough to flip any of the races. Considering all the opposition to restoring integrity, it is probable that the next election will be the most corrupt in our history. In light of the mess the Democrats have made upon gaining slim control, it will be hard to believe that the Republicans do not win in a landslide, IF the vote is honest.

Here is a fundamental question. If Pelosi loses the majority, as expected, will she be resigning? If that is the case she should not run for reelection. If she does run in November 2022, wins, and then resigns after turning the speaker's gavel over to Kevin McCarthy, she should be forced to pay for the special election to replace her. It's time we started holding people responsible for things like this.

It's too soon to predict but if inflation and hacking/ransomware issues continue on the current pace the Dems will get blasted. Biden & Co. will own those issues. And Dems cannot fix those issues with highly Partisan, party-line-vote legislation.

Biden's 2022 budget wokeness: Mothers are
now "birthing people"
1 reply
Posted by Dreadnought 6/8/2021 11:10:29 PM Post Reply
Why are woke Democrats waging a war on women? Joe Biden is embracing a particularly disturbing term for women who give birth. While most of us call these women ‘mothers’, the woke insist on a new terminology- birthing people. Just when we think the destruction of the English language can’t get any worse, someone says “Hold my beer.” Joe Biden’s FY2022 budget, a $6 trillion monstrosity, addresses the maternal mortality rate in the United States. The section begins by using traditional wording such as maternal and woman. Then toward the end, there is a shift to gender neutral language.

Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) stated that during negotiations over an infrastructure package, “we offered the president basically what he asked us to do the first time we met with him, which was a trillion dollars over eight years, including baseline spending.” And that despite Republicans drawing a red line on tax increases, “the last offer that I got from the president had four tax increases in it.” Capito said, “Well, the president ended the talks today with me on a very cordial call.

Several weeks ago I read a wonderful column by my old pal Gerry Baker of the Wall Street Journal. It was titled, “Did Biden Peak on Inauguration Day? Covid confusion, Mideast chaos and the threat of inflation — He doesn’t have many victories to point to.” That question is reinforced by the Journal’s Kim Strassel, in a column Friday titled “Biden’s Agenda Hits a Senate Wall: The Parliamentarian nixes Schumer’s plan to evade the filibuster via ‘reconciliation.’” Much of the economic and stock market outlook for the remainder of this year and next would be determined by responses to these questions.

Joe Biden’s top priority since passing his economy-crushing boondoggle of a COVID “relief bill” has been to get an infrastructure package done. The problem is that the filibuster exists, and while Joe Manchin was willing to push through the first monstrosity via reconciliation, he’s said he doesn’t want to do that again. That means that Republican votes are almost certainly going to be needed to get anything done. Enter West Virginian Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, who has been acting as the chief negotiator for the GOP regarding the matter. Capito is now saying that Joe Biden has blown up negotiations after initially asking Republicans to submit a $1 trillion

On May 8, Colonial Pipeline paid a ransom worth roughly $4.3 million in bitcoin to the Russia-based hacking group known as DarkSide, which had used malicious software to hold the company hostage.
