Reading the Tea Leaves in Virginia

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 9/29/2021 1:43:35 PM

Last night Virginina watched a debate between former Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe, who is trying for a second turn in office (Virginia has a single-term limit, but you are still eligible to run again after another governor serves), and Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin. Polls show it to be a close race. I’ve never thought McAuliffe an especially talented politician, and he let fly with two howlers in the debate, captured in these two tweets: Yes—he really said both of these things. (Sorry Bill, old pal—you’re not the “leading conservative” in America any more; only in the Potemkin Village constructed in the minds of liberals.) But there was one other more subtle point.

Of the the $3.5 trillion "Build Back Better" bill, Pelosi said that it wasn't about the dollar amount because the "dollar amount, as the president said, is zero." How does anyone think she or TaliBiden is credible?

McAuliffe has a bit too much Clinton stank still attached. So glad that isn't our state's problem.

I have always been puzzled at why Virginia would elect this corrupt, Clinton crook who's not even from Virginia - he's from central New York state, and known for Clinton hijinks. Things like that make you wonder if there's some cheating in these elections...

McAwful was and will be “elected” by voter fraud in Fairfax County. No doubt they already have the ballots printed, marked and packed up when it becomes apparent how many votes they need to put Terry back in office. Just ask Ken Cuccinelli.

Senate votes to avoid government shutdown
with short-term funding bill

Posted by Dreadnought 9/30/2021 3:35:58 PM Post Reply
The Senate on Thursday approved a bill to fund the government through Dec. 3 and avert a government shutdown for now. It's one of several political issues being followed closely by the markets, which have fallen Thursday amid uncertainty about the passage of a bipartisan infrastructure bill and President Biden's $3.5 trillion spending package. Sixty-five senators voted in favor of the short-term funding bill, which did not include a provision to raise the debt ceiling. Thirty-five no votes were not enough to sink the bill, which needed 60 votes to pass. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has said that the U.S. could run out of money

Special Counsel John Durham, the attorney tapped by the Trump administration to audit the Russia investigation, has reportedly handed down a new set of subpoenas, including to a law firm with ties to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. The grand jury subpoenas for documents were issued earlier this month, according to CNN, after Durham charged Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann for allegedly knowingly making a false statement to the FBI. Investigators from the special counsel’s office are seeking additional documents from Sussmann’s former law firm, Perkins Coie, an indication that Durham may be looking to add to Sussmann’s charges or to bring cases against other defendants.
US jobless claims rise for third straight

The economic recovery in the United States is still on track, but the labour market is signalling that growth is decelerating in the face of challenges ranging from the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19 to stingier jobless benefits. Weekly jobless claims, a proxy for layoffs, rose by a stronger-than-expected 11,000 last week to 362,000, the US Department of Labor said on Thursday. That is the third week in a row that initial claims have increased, and the highest reading since early August. The biggest jump by state came from California, where nearly 18,000 more people filed for initial unemployment benefits last week than the week before.
Disarray: Sure looks like the bipartisan

Reportedly Pelosi and her team are gathering in her office this morning to discuss the way forward. The “way forward” was supposed to be a vote on the bipartisan bill today, I thought. If there’s a new “way forward,” that can mean only one thing. She doesn’t have the votes. The fact that members of Biden’s cabinet are suddenly downplaying the need for a vote today also doesn’t bode well for Dems: Pelosi could put the bill on the floor in the expectation that progressives will vote it down, if only to signal to Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema in the strongest possible way that lefties won’t bend
Poll: Joe Biden’s Approval Rating Plunges

President Joe Biden’s job approval rating in Texas took a steep downturn by a net 24 points, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. The poll, conducted September 24–27 among 863 registered Texas voters, found that 32 percent approve of Biden’s job handling, while 61 percent disapprove. Another six percent did not provide a response. The same Texas poll was last taken in June, and that one found 45 percent approved of Biden’s job handling, while 50 percent disapproved, which means that since June, approval of the president has fallen a net 24 points.

Yesterday was quite the day for Joe Manchin. The West Virginian senator went on a rampage against Democrat priorities, going against Nancy Pelosi’s plea for a legislative agreement on reconciliation prior to a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill. He put out a lengthy statement later in the afternoon and left media figures steaming at his unwillingness to fall in line. To the extent that he wasn’t the sole focus, that was because Kyrsten Sinema is also holding things up for her own reasons. Things were so fluid, and the blows kept piling up so rapidly, that it was hard to keep up with them all.

Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema gives her own party no end to headaches. On any given agenda item, they can find Sinema standing opposed to it in some regard, looking to walk it back from the extremes the Democrat party takes things to. The same can be said about the $3.5 trillion spending bill Democrats want to slam through. Sinema has kept her cards close to her chest about it, and it’s caused her fellow party members and the media to wonder where she stands on it all. So, the media asked her and she answered.

When the Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on evictions, a flurry of left-wing hyperbole and paranoid fearmongering commenced, forecasting a national crisis. “How are we on vacation when we have millions of people who could start to be evicted tonight?” radical Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) ranted dishonestly with other progressives by her side this summer from the U.S. Capitol steps. “There are people already receiving and have received pay or vacate notices that will have them out tomorrow.” However, as with most alarmism, it’s not come to fruition, and the country has gone a full month without any disaster.

The Hill reported that two Democrat senators familiar with the bipartisan infrastructure bill voting talks in the House are expecting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to cancel Thursday’s scheduled vote due to not having enough votes. The report noted that two senators, who are remaining anonymous, claim they are in contact with Democrat members in the House who believe there will not be enough votes since there are “at least two-dozen progressives planning to vote ‘no’ on infrastructure without a separate vote on a larger social spending package.” “They will not pass it on Thursday.

On Wednesday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Guy Benson Show,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) stated that he would be “honored” to hire any Border Patrol agents who are fired or have to resign due to vaccine mandates from the Biden administration. Host Guy Benson asked, “Would you hire fired Border Patrol agents on that issue, if they refuse to get vaccinated?” Abbott said, “Absolutely. So, under Texas law, under the orders that I’ve established, no government agency in the state of Texas can impose a vaccine mandate. If there is any Border Patrol officer who gets fired or has to quit, whatever the case may be

The Associated Press has a curious story out of China this week that gave me pause when I first saw it. It’s a story about people in China eating their meals using flashlights or the lights on their cellphones to be able to see. Some homeowners and businesses are firing up generators to keep the power going during prime demand hours. So what’s going on? Have they run out of fuel? Are their powerlines coming down during wildfires as we’ve seen in California? Nope. As it turns out, there’s plenty of power to go around but the government simply shut

House Democrats appear poised to miss a second vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill this week, highlighting the stubborn stalemate over the larger social benefits package at the core of President Biden's agenda. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has scheduled the infrastructure vote for Thursday, reflecting a promise she’s made to centrist Democrats eager to notch a bipartisan win on an issue that’s eluded Congress for decades. An initial infrastructure vote, scheduled for Monday, had been postponed, and moderates in the House are threatening to revolt if it happens twice. “Obviously, our group will have a lot of trouble

Dr. Anthony Fauci has moved the goalposts on what it means to be “fully vaccinated,” and I’m sure you can guess how it has changed. For many months now, being “fully vaccinated” meant that you had to have two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine, but now, according to Fauci, you’re not fully vaccinated unless you get the booster shot. “It is likely, for a real complete regimen, that you would need at least a third dose,” Fauci told The Atlantic in an exclusive interview.(Snip)“I’ve made it clear that my opinion has always been that I believe that a third-shot booster

Obama stated that the crisis at the Del Rio border is “heartbreaking” and that the system, overall, “is dysfunctional.” “It’s the reason I proposed comprehensive immigration reform. It’s the reason Joe Biden proposed it during his administration, and it’s something that is long overdue,” Obama stated, according to GMA. The former president went on to say the situation at Del Rio is a reminder that more work needs to be done and that President Biden understands the situation better than anyone. “As big-hearted as he is,

Post offices nationwide will begin to see some delays in mail service beginning on Friday as part of the postmaster general’s new plan to cut costs and save money. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy announced the 10-year plan in the spring, which outlined new investments in technology, training and fleets of delivery vehicles. The USPS will implement the new service standards Friday, which could lead to longer transit times for some long-distance first-class mail and first-class packages. Shorter post office hours will also affect delivery times(snip) The changes are not expected to affect better than 90% of periodicals and 60% of first-class mail, USPS spokesperson Kim Frum told NPR.

During the campaign speech, Biden, 77, described how children used to play with his blond leg hairs in the swimming pool while telling a story about his time working as a lifeguard. Well, with that disgusting video we found out about Joe’s hairy legs but it seems that at least his hands appear to look less hairy back in January when he got his first vaccine shot.
