Normal Americans Wake Up

Original Article

Are Joe Biden and the Democrats in trouble heading into the next election? While it’s early, new data seems to suggest they are losing ground in ways that could lead to a red wave. Alternate headline – The Honeymoon Is Over. In addition to the Harvard/Harris poll reported on by Jeff Charles earlier today, there’s this from Axios. Zoom out: The Democratic messaging group Future Majority in May released a deck identifying areas where Republicans hold an advantage: Of the issues polled, “defunding the police,” “open borders” and “reparations for slavery” were by far the biggest turnoffs for both independents and voters in general. Republicans bested Democrats on jobs

Did anyone poll the voting machines, Bonchie? Your article is from the mistaken perception that we still have a viable free and fair election system in this country. Also - polls are propaganda. Period.

If Republicans do win back the House and Senate, will they roll back any of the Democrats policies? Doubtful, as usual, they will have a million excuses of why then can't.

This poll and others like it are deceptive attempts to lure Republicans into over-confidence and thinking they have 2022 in the bag so 'why bother to vote'. WE cannot risk acting as anything but scared to death that we will lose.

We've had red waves before and what has happened? The republicans refuse to govern. They hide under their desks and say the votes arent there, all while accepting huge, donations... from those who benefit from their inaction. We are screaming toward the same cliff at the same speed on the same road, just in a different lane. Big deal. Red wave. Pfffft.

The word "wake" has been used and abused. The democrats ran a campaign on communist ideas that the radical left does not even understand, they just know that their stupid, selfish interests were addressed as sly promises. They had no clue that Biden is on nobody's side but the government's. It will take years to make the election process tamper-proof and when it is again somewhat normal, your big prize is - The Republicans!

The Marxist deep state is clearly involved with global child-sex trafficking, and it will lead to their ultimate destruction. In spite of a media ban on the subject, the word is getting out. Epstein Island is no longer a conspiracy theory, and Maxwell's trial is set to start. They say she has been singing like a bird. Oddly though, the judge in the Maxwell case said the details were to "impure and sensational" for public consumption. I can't remember that ever happening before, even with Jeffrey Dahmer. Why can't we know what happened on that island? There is a hell of a story there, but the complicit Luciferian media seems oddly disinterested.

There will be no "red wave" or anything of the kind if voter fraud is not addressed and remedied in short order. I know many who will not bother voting for anything ever again. Why waste time and energy when all votes - local, state and national are rigged in favor of Marxism? Additionally, all the courts are loaded with Marxists who relish the downfall of America and will hear no cases contrary to their master's agendas. Those are the cold, hard facts.

#2, You are correct and that is why I no longer put my trust and faith in the Republican leadership. They have been ineffective and weak. We need warriors and are stuck with the shuffling go along to get along, comity is our strength garbage that comes from them. They do not realize that we are in a war for the very soul of this nation. As long as their positions are safe, their perks and bennies are safe, all is well in their world. However, the reality on Main Street USA is far from that experience. They believe in the power of government more than they do the power of the people. We are just a nuisance they must deal with and in no way do they consider us to be their boss or even their equal. Their job is to represent us, the American people, and not whichever policy that can make them wealthy and powerful. I am so critical of the leadership because when they could have stood up and made a difference, they chose not to do so. They were too afraid to speak out or they secretly harbored the hope that President Trump would lose. I believe it is both but one thing is certain, Trump put the fear of God into them because he knew the corrupt game they played and he refused to participate. Their very way of life was threatened by a guy who was willing to stand for what was good and right for the American people and they had failed to do that because the status quo benefited them more. What small, small men.

As I have said and written many, many times, democrats care ONLY about gaining POWER. They do not care how they get it, they don't care what it does to citizens, they don't care who is hurt, and last of all, they do not care what their power quest does to the nation. They are the antithesis of patriotism.

They will triangulate and adjust but their goal is dominion (like voting machine). Greed is so powerful. It never goes dormant. Wanting people to have Freedom to pursue their own interests coordinated in the interest of the whole community by means of the Market Economy does not quite have the same fervency.

Lots of cynicism here and it’s understandable. The GOP, with Kevin McCarthy at the helm, is not going to advance conservatism or conservative principles. What they will do is put Nancy Pelosi and the liberal Hate America First brigade into the minority where they belong. I will enthusiastically vote for that.

Geeze! I am really sad to see so many are not giving all those hard workers in Arizona some backing. They have been working, day and night, to go over the Ballots, and Machines. We are to find out soon what they found. I think we should have a bit of confidence that they are going to change the Electors in that State. It sounds like they found exactly what they thought they would, namely, FRAUD! Once they announce their findings, Georgia is ready to Audit! Michigan is looking at it as well as PA. Things are moving. Don't lose hope! One by one these states are going to change the Nov. findings. We all know what happened, but it's taking these extremely Bright and hard working people who are not giving up, to prove it. So, I'm with them! I say THEY are the Republicans who care enough to prove it. We need ALL Republicans backing them, not saying it's not worth it to go vote. THAT is exactly what the Democrats are hoping will happen. That we will lose hope! Nope! We are going to fight harder than ever in 2022! We are going to take back BOTH Houses and throw out a few RINOS when doing it. Nancy will be gone! Biden will be stopped. And in 2024 (be it Trump or DeSantis) things will begin to go back to what WE call Normal!!

We just had a red wave of unbelievable proportion. Why we have a president who can't talk, can't walk, fondles little girls on tv, blackmails countries for his son, shuts down industries, can't climb steps, wanders around in public, absent minded, iq of 70, wears a mask to bed, and he won with over 81 million votes.

The only way to facilitate a red wave is for conservatives to aggressively organize conservatives to become the vote counters. Stop the fraudsters from counting the votes, or at least put enough conservatives on the ground to hamper the number of votes stolen.

The next election. We cannot face what America has become. We look away. We know that Democrats always cheated in elections. They still brag about stealing the 1960 Presidential Election. We don't want to face the massive and brazen fraud that was the 2020 Presidential Election. We don't want to face it. Democrats used to be discrete in their cheating. In 2020, being discrete was not going to overturn a landslide. The fraud was 'out and proud'. The news media aided and abetted. Right now, the DNC is offering the AZ Audit Leaders $ millions to say, "Well, there was a little fraud, but not enough to change the results." What would you do? What would you do, offered all the riches of the World, after seeing a year when 'American' cattle dutifully lined up to wear masks, and take a magic gene therapy injection to cure COVID, a cold virus. It's not them. It's us. We got soft, and were taught by our Public Education to reject God. It is the story of Human existence.

Supreme Court strikes down California donor
disclosure requirement

Washington — The Supreme Court on Thursday invalidated a requirement by the state of California that charities fundraising in the state must disclose the identities of their most generous donors. The high court ruled 6-3 along ideological lines in favor of a pair of nonprofits that challenged the state's policy. The Supreme Court found the measure, which requires charities that fundraise in the state to turn over information about their top contributors, is unconstitutional. "We are left to conclude that the Attorney General's disclosure requirement imposes a widespread burden on donors' associational rights. And this burden cannot be justified

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a major voting rights case involving whether Arizona voting restrictions are racially discriminatory. The high court ruled Arizona’s out-of-precinct policy and HB 2023 do not violate the Voting Rights Act and were not enacted with a racially discriminatory purpose. The judgment of the Court of Appeals is now reversed, and the cases are remanded for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion for the majority and was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Clarence Thomas, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

The race for New York City mayor was always going to be a s***show, at the least on the Democrat side. Given the new ranked-choice voting system and pre-existing problems with vote counting, the Democrats weren’t expected to declare a winner until weeks after the voting. Things took a turn for the worse yesterday when the Board of Elections released updated results showing that what was a substantial lead for Eric Adams had almost disappeared due to ranked-choice adjustments, but then withdrew these results stating that they were due to a counting error. Nothing enhances confidence in government like an admission that it can’t count.

The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them.

New York City's Board of Election is facing widespread criticism after it mistakenly included some 135,000 "test" ballots in partial results released Tuesday in its tightly-contested mayoral election. The three-way contest — between Brooklyn borough President Eric Adams; Maya Wiley, former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio; and Kathryn Garcia, former Department of Sanitation head — has been upended with a murky picture of who is ahead after the election board's botched release and scores of mail-in votes remain to be counted.

President Donald Trump and Gov. Greg Abbott both appeared on Sean Hannity’s show tonight in a town hall about the border. It was an event with an extremely enthusiastic and favorable crowd for Trump. Hannity started it by comparing and contrasting how Trump got the border in hand. How Trump got the number of people illegally entering to fall because of all his efforts including the Remain in Mexico policy, building 500 miles of new border wall, and discouraging people from coming. As opposed to the Biden/Harris team whose policies encouraged people to come illegally. Biden reversed almost all of Trump’s border “fixes.”

On Tuesday, the Democrat-controlled House Appropriations Committee released their Department of Defense funding bill that includes $870 million in taxpayer money for “border security” measures in foreign countries such as Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman. Of that funding, $150 million will go to Jordan to help “enhanced border security.” Likewise, the budget allocates $500 million to be used “to provide assistance to the government of Jordan to support the armed forces of Jordan

The delta variant has many across the world concerned, and on Monday, Los Angeles County health officials strongly recommended that all residents again wear a mask in indoor public spaces, regardless of vaccination status.

Vogue, the world's fashion bible, has placed Jill Biden on her cover as the epitome of fashion. She's a "goddess," they explain. Which is a stretch, given that the first lady has sported getups like this loud red zebra print dress, or these huge-print patterned pantyhose worn with elfin spike heel ankle boots. It goes to show that its whole schtick is politics, not fashion. After all, the big fashion bible for the world's stylish somehow managed to overlook the nation's truly stylish first lady, Melania Trump, a former super-model, who not only was quite beautiful, but age-appropriate and elegant in her four years as first lady.

I've noticed that whenever the subject of Nazi Germany is raised, someone always says something like this: "It's unbelievable that Adolf Hitler was able to manipulate and control the entire German population. It just seems impossible." (snip) Like a lot of Americans, I always assumed that America was safe from the kind of tyranny the German people experienced under the heavy hand of the Third Reich. (snip) Yet, for the past eighteen months, that's exactly what has happened in America. A nation that always prided itself on its independence and individuality was suddenly locked down.
