Democrats face grim political reality
in midterms

Original Article

Democrats are grappling with the increasingly dire political reality facing them in next year’s midterm elections as warning signs pile up for the party ahead of 2022. Once hopeful that they could defy the typical midterm shellacking dealt to the party in power, a series of foreboding developments has rocked that sense of optimism. President Biden’s approval ratings are in free fall, his top legislative priorities have stalled and, just this week, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) announced that he would retire, making him the first senior House Democrat to bow out ahead of the midterms.

Sit tight, people! Let the government keep stealing your wealth through taxation and inflation, injecting you with an ongoing series of gene therapies, teaching your children that America and White people in particular are bad, and flooding the nation with illegal aliens and refugees because in 13 months, they totally won't steal the election again because that would be dishonest.

Everything about the Biden led catastrophe described in the article is absolutely and verifiably true. But why do I have this feeling of 'doom by Dominion'? I am continually reminded that it's not the votes that count but who counts the votes. Anti-freedom, anti-liberty and anti-American democrats (small d) are putting the country on the path to ruin. They are making the Khrushchev promise to 'bury us' the cornerstoneg of their insurrection.

Politically speaking, I hope the midterms are a bloodbath. The Dems deserve nothing but annihilation. Politically, not literally.

It's a 'Big Club' and we're not in it. It doesn't matter if the Democrats loses the House and Senate because Republicans have the same goals. More power and money for themselves, less money and freedom for us. Voter fraud is the greatest threat to our democracy.

Really? This is the same playbook democrats use every election. ‘Oh no, we’re going to lose’, until they steal what they could not win. The only way we win and this is by no means a sure thing is if we turn out in numbers NEVER before seen. Then maybe they will not be able to manufacture the votes they need. Remember, all it took in 2020 was a few counties in swing states and voila! They won! If you believe these fascists will go legally, think again. They have exposed themselves in all their totalitarian glory. This article is just a ruse. Nancy will come out right before the election and tell us exactly what is going to happen. She did it before 2020 and she will do it again.

Yes, it would be great if there is enough voters to overcome the built in mass cheating in the voting system to get the commie death democrats out of Congress, however when reviewing past history of when the republicans do gain control, they betray the citizens who voted them into office and cave in time after time to the commie death democrats. In order to fundamentally reform and transform our Government back into a Constitutional Republic, the republican party itself needs to purge all Rhino Traitors from the party and put forth candidates who will be true Patriotic Warriors who will fight an unceasing and merciless war against the commie death democrats. If the republicans do win the house and senate, the leaders will be the corrupt, deep state traitors like McCarthy in the House ( a Paul Ryan crony) and of course the reptilian China Stooge Mitch McConnell. With these two pond scum in charge of both houses of Congress, we will once again be betrayed and the destruction of our country will continue. Once again we will be voting for the lesser of two evils but at the end of the day the reality is that we will still be voting for evil. We still have to vote though or we are giving up the fight.

I doubt it. They've got 15000 new Haitian voters, 100,000 new Afghan voters and now, 95000 new South American and Caribbean voters heading to our border. Then there's the 30,000,000 voters already here (and let's not forget the DACA voters who came here 6 or 7 years ago who are now old enough to vote). That's a lot of mail in ballots already printed out and checked for the democrat candidate, and it doesn't include the American voters who'd be voting democrat. "Bu ... bu ... but ... They'll be spread out and any illegal voting will be diluted". What if they're not? What if they're all the new voters are concentrated in big, red Texas and it turns blue?

I am hopeful but I fear FJB's "most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics" has not been dismantled. The Marxist operatives are still in place and it's an outrageous that Dominion machines are still allowed anywhere. I predict numerous "issues" with Dominion voting machines, republican poll watchers being banned, possibly even arrested, and a watermain break in Philadelphia.

The very worst thing for us at this point is defeatism. "We can't possibly win, the machines are fixed, etc." That will only depress our vote! We need such a tsunami of revulsion that it overwhelms all attempts at cheating on their part. The revulsion is there. You've heard "F**k Joe Biden!" across the land, haven't you? Please stop with the "we can't win" "they are unstoppable." It plays right into their hands. Sheesh.

The Biden administration and the Democrats have created crises after crises. These are of their own making. All but a very few Democrats have gone along with this. Their $ multi-trillion spending bills will drive a stake into the heart of the economy. Yet they nearly forced the government into default rather reduce one dime of this spending orgy. They deserve to experience an electoral bloodbath this midterm election. Nothing less will halt their delusional destruction of the country.

Lefty judge extends voting hours till enough votes can be 'harvested'. Billionaires provide funds to drop off illegal boxes and pick ups. Local government union employees (read thugs) board up counting halls, start phony 'watermain breaks', deliver suitcases of printed faux ballots. Dominion machines provide the rest of the required margin. The same judge declares no one lese has 'standing'. Rinse and repeat. We have seen this movie before.

And I supposed the author of this nonsense piece really thinks the magician cuts the lady in half after pulling a rabbit out of an empty hat. Hint: it's fake! If anyone is foolish enough to believe this tripe, they deserve to be deceived. So Brandon's poll numbers are in the tank. So what? So were Hugo Chavez's numbers but he still won "re-election" handily ... as did Putin, Saddam, Fidel, Stalin, etc. Until enough people realize what is really going on, the House & Senate will soon become even more like the Politburo than it already is.

Don't get your hopes up about the mid-term elections. If the Democrats can openly steal the presidential election, which they did, then keeping their majority should be a walk in the park. Democrats are generally in charge of vote counting and controversial results almost always are resolved in the courts in their favor. An example of this in the last election was SCOTUS refusing to hear and decide on complaints about clear violations of Pennsylvania election laws. Liberal/Progressive judges down the legal food chain, people you never heard of, always decide in favor of the Democrat candidate. Republicans may pick up a few seats, but criminality is the new norm so a blowout will not and cannot happen. I've been accused of being a crepehanger. Guilty! Anyone with a brain can see how things are evolving in this country.

Here's an interesting tidbit. At President Trump's Rally in Ohio recently, a Republican from AZ (believe State Senator) said that when they were doing the 2020 Election Audit, they came upon a different type of PAPER BALLOT that the State mailed out to voters. The paper was not the same consistency as the paper used for the mail in ballot. Mmmm? Forensic testing being done? Where did this paper come from and who produced it? China? Inquiring minds would like to know.

What #9 et al said. What Bob Beckel said ("How many votes do you have? .. How many votes do you need?). Of course, Joe Stalin said it decades ago. Our real hope would be for Senators Manchin and Sinema to switch parties like Jim Jeffords did in 2001. Assuming betrayal from Senators Cheney, Murkowski, Romney, and other RINOs: even that would not be enough. More Dems need to switch. If the Senate does not flip beforehand, the Biden agenda will get through, and 2020 will be stolen. W.A.S.S. Pray. Pray hard.

Salena Zito warned everyone first, and Punchbowl follows up today with the same message: Joe Manchin means what he says. Democrats and the media may not grasp this as it happens so rarely in Washington, and neither group has included that in its calculations. However, that reality keeps getting clearer and clearer, and the Punchbowl crew warn Democrats to figure it out — fast: Manchin has been remarkably consistent, and all the major media outlets have reported it time and time again. If you’re surprised by what Manchin is saying now, maybe you’ve been really busy, tied up on other endeavors and haven’t listened to or read what he’s said.

According to a recent report, executives at Microsoft were aware of company founder Bill Gates’ behavior with female employees and warned Gates to stop pestering one woman with flirtatious emails. The Wall Street Journal reports that in 2008, executives at Microsoft discovered emails between company founder Bill Gates and a mid-level female employee. At the time, Gates was still employed at Microsoft and was a chairman of the board. In the messages, Gates who was married at the time, appeared to flirt with the female employees and propositioned her. Two of the company’s top executives
Axios Blames American Consumers, Not Bad

Blame the American consumer! That’s the approach liberal outlet Axios used to explain away the atrocious labor shortages affecting the U.S. economy, and not President Joe Biden’s economic policies. Axios published a snobbish piece headlined, “Unruly customers threaten economic recovery.” The outlet’s asinine argument was that “increasingly violent and combative customers,” angry about “long wait times and mask mandates,” were causing workers to quit, hamstringing a recovery that hinges in part on employees “returning to work.” But unlike Axios, The Wall Street Journal editorial board didn’t hesitate to pin the labor shortage blame on the proper culprit: “Bidenomics.”

After wrecking the supply chain, the White House should be begging for mercy from consumers. After all, it was Democrats, including some in the White House, who created the supply chain mess, leaving mass numbers of ships stranded at ports. Transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg went on extended family leave without appointing a deputy or telling much of anyone. California's ruling Democrats put into place laws that prohibit independent truckers or trucks more than three years old from collecting containerized merchandise from port offloads.

Yesterday, news broke that Gen. Colin Powell had died after contracting COVID-19. The former Bush official and former Republican was 84-years-old. He was also undergoing treatment for cancer, though, the treatment itself was said to have been going well until he caught the coronavirus. Powell was also fully vaccinated, and that has represented an inconvenient reality for many people. As I’ll explain later, I’m not sure why. But what was so interesting to me is how quickly the standards shifted in regards to how you are supposed to discuss people who die of COVID. For the better part of two years, the predominant assertion

China has denied reports that it tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile earlier this year, insisting instead that it was a routine spacecraft check. The initial report in the Financial Times newspaper prompted concern in Washington, where US intelligence was reportedly caught by surprise. Hypersonic missiles are much faster and more agile than normal ones, meaning they are more difficult to intercept. It comes as concern grows around China's nuclear capabilities. On Monday, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a media briefing that a routine test had been carried out in July to verify different types of reusable spacecraft technology.

Posted by Dreadnought 10/18/2021 11:17:43 AM Post Reply
Most of the coverage we provided during Japan’s bungled turn hosting the Olympics this summer dealt with the nation’s spiraling COVID infection rates and lagging mass vaccination efforts. But while they limited the in-person attendance of the actual games, the lockdowns and restrictions the government imposed were fairly mild. People were still allowed to go out to bars and restaurants, albeit with modest capacity limits and the streets were far from empty. The Associated Press described the measures as a series of “relatively toothless states of emergency.” That makes this week’s news all the more puzzling to some medical professionals.

He may not have been someone we always agreed with -- to be honest, sometimes his public statements in his last years were infuriating. But he was honorable, he served honorably, he embodied public service, he served in combat, no slimey scandals were ever associated with his name, and no one ever wondered whether he was so incompetent he had to be doing it by design in an effort to dismantle the U.S., as is heard at times with the current crop of White House incompetents

RedState reported on the viral sensation at the time.

It’s been a little while since we checked in on how things are going in Afghanistan under the kinder, gentler Taliban. While there is still a limited amount of mainstream media coverage coming out of the country and some reporters remain on the ground in the “safer” areas, much of the focus has shifted elsewhere. (This is to the great relief of the Biden administration, carried out by his willing stenographers in the press.)

That lasted until the father of one of the victims who had been raped in a school bathroom by a boy wearing a skirt went public. There’s been a different sort of coverup taking place since then in the form of a near-total mainstream media blackout of the story, with a few incomplete exceptions.

The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter. Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.

The new proposal will still allow the IRS to access information on accounts that transfer or receive more than $10,000 annually.
