Texas poll: Abbott cruises, Beto bruises,
and McConaughey snoozes?

All right all right all right all right. Or all wrong if you’re Beto O’Rourke or Matthew McConaughey, both of whom come up short in the latest Texas Tribune poll for the Lone Star State. Contrary to other recent polling, Greg Abbott maintains a significant lead in a re-election gubernatorial bid, although not exactly commanding: Gov. Greg Abbott has a comfortable lead over potential Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke, according to a new poll from the University of Texas at Austin and The Texas Tribune. The survey of registered voters found Abbott with a 9-percentage-point advantage over O’Rourke, 46% to 37%. Seven percent of respondents picked someone else in the hypothetical matchup,

Cannot figure Abbott out. Locked down and then was all border protection and stopped locking down.

Gonna be tough year for Republicans in Texas because of attacks from within the RINO party. Already have two carpetbaggers looking for high level state offices. PeeBush is one of them and he is bad enough where he is.

Abbott blew it last year, with his over-reaction to the Covid virus. He alienated a lot of his base voters in the process. And he knows it. So he has been working in over-drive to earn back his conservative credentials. And honestly, overall, I believe he has done a very good job this past year -- with how he has changed 100% in the pandemic over-reaction, how he has been addressing border issues, and how he has stood up to both not-my-president Lyin' Joe biden and the RINO establishment in DC. I believe he has won back many of us. In my case, his strong support of pro-life legislation, and the election integrity law that was passed, really did it for me!!!

If the University of Texas at Austin had anything to do with the poll...don't trust it...Berkeley has nothing on UT when it comes to being Liberal! Liberal is only a euphemism for Communist.

According to Axios, Germany is reporting the highest daily number of COVID-19 infections since the pandemic began. New cases across Europe have risen 55% in the past four weeks, according to WHO director Hans Kluge, who says “We are at another critical point of pandemic resurgence.” The WHO says there have been 24,000 deaths and 1.8 million new infections in Europe in just the past week. But most of the serious cases and deaths have occurred in Baltic countries where vaccination rates are low. However, Germany has one of the highest vaccination rates in Europe and is still seeing record numbers of infections. The German government claims

The House passed the smaller infrastructure bill that garnered bipartisan support late Friday night. The bill addresses real spending for infrastructure, not the liberal wish list of cradle to grave social program spending in the second infrastructure bill. Together, the two bills comprise Biden’s domestic agenda. With the passage of the smaller bill – $1.2T – it’s full speed ahead to now move to the second bill. The social spending bill isn’t written yet, but House Democrats promised to agree on the framework of it and pass it in the House when it comes up. We’ll see if that holds true when the time comes.

Righty populists are irate this morning, not so much because they oppose the bill on the merits but because the 13 defectors committed the cardinal sin of 21st-century American politics. They helped the other team to a major political win.I’m sure Katko can be successfully primaried but he represents a D+2 district. (For the moment. Redistricting is in motion.) Replace him with a MAGA candidate and it’s less likely that that seat stays red. Anyway, any analysis of whether the 13 who voted yes committed a mortal or just a venial sin should start with this question: Was the bipartisan infrastructure bill going to pass no matter what?

The passage of Joe Biden’s $550 billion Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF) is a game-changer—although it might not change the game in the way that Democrats want. Here are six takeaways on BIF: 1. The bill is a poisoned chalice—because Democrats poisoned it. On November 6, the morning after BIF passed the U.S. House, the lead story in Politico bannered this headline: “‘Whole day was a clusterf—‘: Dems overcome distrust to send infra bill to Biden.” Hmm. Clusterf—. That’s not such a nice word, is it? Not a quote to inspire confidence, eh? And yet the quote came not from a Republican

The Washington Post has a lengthy article about how Tuesday’s election has dashed the hopes of black activists. The article begins this way: The summer of 2020 brought a renewed focus on addressing racism, with protesters filling the streets after the police killings of Black men; statues of Confederate leaders coming down from their prominent perches; and the leading Democratic presidential candidate promising systemic changes to right the wrongs of the past on his way to winning the White House. But Tuesday’s election results underscored how much the political winds have shifted since the start of what many activists had hoped was a new national awakening

Maybe it was the Adderall kicking in, but President Pee-pants doesn’t like getting caught in a lie. It makes him downright cranky. Last week, Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked a smiling, somewhat sedated Joe Biden about a report regarding the U.S. paying $450,000, and maybe up to $1 million, to illegal immigrants who were separated from their kids while trying to cross the southern border during the Trump administration. Biden referred to the report as “garbage.” “That’s not going to happen,” he declared. When Doocy asks if it’s a garbage report, Biden says, “Yeah.” Here’s video of the exchange:

Kyle Rittenhouse is the then-17 year old boy who showed up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during the violent riots, looting and arson that occurred last year. Rittenhouse, armed with a rifle, wanted to help maintain order and protect private property, but it was a misguided mission to say the least. He ran afoul of extreme leftists, most likely Antifa members, and, coming under attack, shot three of them, two fatally. Viewing the videos that were circulating at the time, it seemed pretty clear to me that the kid acted in self-defense. Now Rittenhouse is being prosecuted for murder.

Washington - A U.S. federal appeals court issued a stay Saturday freezing the Biden administration's efforts to require workers at U.S. companies with at least 100 employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested weekly, citing "grave statutory and constitutional" issues with the rule. The ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit comes after numerous Republican-led states filed legal challenges against the new rule, which is set to take effect on Jan 4. In a statement, Solicitor of Labor Seema Nanda said the Labor Department was "confident in its legal authority" to issue the rule, which will be enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Richmond, Va. — Democratic leaders in Virginia conceded Friday that Republicans have won control of the House of Delegates. The Associated Press has not called all of Virginia’s House races yet. But the concession means Republicans would complete an elections sweep in which they also reclaimed the offices of governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn issued a statement acknowledging the GOP majority shortly after Democratic Del. Martha Mugler conceded defeat in a tight race against Republican challenger A.C.

House Democrats late Friday night clinched a long-sought victory on President Biden’s domestic agenda, passing a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill — while preparing to advance an even larger social spending package — after months of stubborn infighting that’s bedeviled the party and helped deflate Biden’s public standing. The vote came after progressives caved on a key demand they’d maintained for months: their insistence that the climate and social spending package be passed on the same day as the more popular infrastructure proposal. On Friday they shed that stipulation, threw their weight behind the public works bill — which had already passed the Senate

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday escalated the tense standoff over President Biden's domestic agenda, daring liberals in her own caucus to oppose a bipartisan infrastructure bill that's languished in the House for months while negotiators haggled over a larger social spending package. Progressives, behind Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), have blocked the infrastructure proposal for fear that Senate centrists — Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) — would reject the bigger "family" benefits bill if the more popular public works bill had already reached Biden's desk. In response, Pelosi has kept the infrastructure bill off the floor, even despite urging the liberals to reconsider their objections

Procter & Gamble (“P&G”) is one of America’s largest corporations, with over 100,000 employees worldwide. It is putting a vaccine mandate into place for its more than 26,000 America-based employees, which will require them to get vaccinated, meet a “company-approved” exemption, or take weekly COVID tests. Those employees opposed to the vaccine mandate are pushing back. To that end, they released a powerful video warning, not P&G, but all Americans, what will happen if these employees lose their jobs.

The governor's office has scrambled in recent weeks to uncover who is facilitating the mystery flights landing in northern Florida daily, but the Biden administration has refused to disclose any information, one official said.
