New Jersey state Senate President Steve Sweeney conceded Wednesday to Republican candidate and commercial truck driver Edward Durr, who spent only $153 on his primary campaign. "The results of Tuesday’s election are in, all votes have been fairly counted, and I, of course, accept the results," Sweeney said during a press conference at the statehouse. "I want to congratulate Mr. Durr and wish him the best of luck," added Sweeney, who has served as New Jersey state Senate president since 2010. When asked "what happened" to upend the race in the state's 3rd Legislative District, Sweeney replied, "It was a red wave."


Finally, the Dem has conceded.

I finally saw a unicorn. Like Monica's boyfriend's wife, they weren't ready for the unexpected. This news will be the last mention of a tactical mistake they won't repeat. That guy who 'found' those 12,000 votes left town and no one has heard from him. Shouldn't the 'mystery' of 12,000 fake votes be fully investigated? Perhaps the mere mention of such an idea made someone sit Sweeney down and told him what to do.

#1 Bingo! Sweeney found 12,000 votes and we need to see them. And count them. And identify the inkjet printer and the kitchen where they were created. You at least have to ask Sweeney: What about the missing 12K?? Did ya lie about em? Or are they disenfranchised.

One interesting tidbit picked up on Mr. Durr. The primary reason he ran was because he was denied a NJ concealed carry permit. The really cool thing about that it that it is highly likely that the Supreme Court will overturn all state discretionary 'may issue' concealed carry permitting systems with the NY case and require simple, objective standards 'shall issue' concealed carry laws in all states. Mr. Durr may get to help write NJ's new concealed carry permit law next year. Big Grin.

Sweeney is most likely so corrupt he had to clean out his office before the new Senator moved in so not conceding gave him that time. no telling what he hauled out of their state house but, he's a demcommie which means he probably stole a lot, like wee willy and PIAPS when they left the White House.

Election wise, it may turn out that stealing the 2020 presidential election will be the most self destructive thing that the demonrats ever did. Everyone, even those who will never actually admit it, knows what truly happened and will be watching for the fraud in the future. The demonrats may have shot their wad last year and will never be able to pull it off again. Just ask shoo-in McAwful in Virginia.

Kevin McCorvey, 34, admitted to an officer that he smoked marijuana, took Adderall and drank a beer while driving the ambulance that ultimately ended up overturned in a ditch in Fairburn on Friday night, according to a police report viewed by 13WMAZ. McCorvey is now being held at Fulton County Jail on charges including first-degree homicide by vehicle, driving under the influence of multiple substances and reckless conduct, records show.

In covering the motions hearing last week in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, I noted a surprising comment from Judge Bruce Schroeder that he had "spent hours" with the Wisconsin gun law and could not state with certainty what it means in this case. The statement could effectively knock out the misdemeanor gun possession count – the one count that could still be in play for the jury after the prosecution's case on the more serious offense appeared to collapse in court. A close examination of that provision reveals ample reason to question not just its meaning but its application to this case.

As we finish 18 months of COVID-19 pandemic, what will we see in the next six months? There will be a massive push to get everyone vaccinated with more battles and punishments for noncompliance. Government, public health authorities, the media, and big pharma will lead the charge. Experimental vaccination will be pushed because those in power can feel their narrative of fear slipping away and they don't have much time left to push the vaccines. People are beginning to realize that COVID-19 is not extremely dangerous to the healthy below age 70. Cases and deaths are going down in spite of attempts to inflate cases with faulty tests

The World Health Organization granted an emergency use license Wednesday to a coronavirus vaccine developed in India, offering reassurance for a shot the country’s regulators allowed long before advanced safety and efficacy testing was completed. The U.N. health agency said in a statement that it had authorized Covaxin, made by India’s Bharat Biotech. The action makes Covaxin the eighth Covid-19 vaccine to receive WHO's green light.[SNIP] Covaxin was developed by Bharat Biotech in partnership with the Indian Council of Medical Research, the government’s apex research body. The vaccine is made using a killed coronavirus to prompt an immune response and is given in two doses.

There has been a great deal of discussion of the widespread Republican victories last week, many of them belaboring the obvious. Fundamentally, the United States is a political society based on personal freedom, a free market, and on democratically legislated and responsibly enforced laws. The current administration’s belief in virtually unrestricted immigration, higher taxes, authoritarian regulation—including COVID vaccine mandates, and a heavy redistribution of wealth from those who have earned it to those who have not—are all antagonistic to the ethos that the United States has had for all of its history. In the circumstances, some sort of reversal was almost inevitable and is the off-year American electoral custom.

This morning, while most of us were reclining on one elbow and enjoying a cigarette and perhaps a warm, damp washcloth in the post-election afterglow of the Glenn Younkin, Winsome Sears, and Jason Miyares sweep of Virginia’s elections, the Supreme Court heard arguments in the first major Second Amendment case to make its docket since McDonald vs. Chicago in 2010. This is not because the Second Amendment hasn’t been under siege but because Chief Justice John Roberts has shown scant interest in treating the Second Amendment as anything other than a curious artifact of our history.

Even as a full-grown adult with adult children, I still like cartoons. As I was raising my two sons, I made it a point to usually keep only one TV in the house. If video games were being played, or cartoons being watched, it was always a family affair — and intentionally designed as such. The idea was to compel negotiation, compromise, and good behavior all around. Any fighting over what to watch or play immediately resulted in no one watching or playing anything. Kids like to play and watch, so they naturally figured out how mostly not to fight about these things.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has begun taking matters into his own hands, installing makeshift border walls created from repurposed shipping containers in strategic locations where migrants are likely to cross. Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas, who previously served as a sheriff in the Rio Grande Valley for eight years, called the new border structures "a great idea" Thursday on "Fox & Friends." "It’s a tool that the governor is using to try to help slow down, curb this invasion, this invasion that we’re seeing at our southern border," said Nehls. Nehls described the border wall construction as a "defensive position" to "channel" migrants into areas with larger law enforcement and Border Patrol presences.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will take up arguably the oldest and most controversial right in our history. New York State Rifle Association v. Bruen is the first major gun rights case in over 10 years to come before the Supreme Court and it has the makings of a major gun rights victory. The case concerns concealed-carry restrictions that require a showing of "proper cause." Lower courts have upheld the New York law, but there are ample constitutional concerns over its vague standard, such as showing that you are "of good moral character." New York wants to exercise discretion in deciding who needs to carry guns in public

In two of those cases he did not vote at all, and he voted no in just one.

Watching the news, one sees constant stories about COVID numbers rising, yet again, now almost two years into this pandemic, with COVID hospitalizations in some states higher than they have ever been except for the spike last December. In my state of Colorado, the test positivity rate is almost 10 percent, with 1 in 48 infected and if the current trend continues, this will be the worst COVID spike the state has seen. On the surface, that doesn’t make sense, since nearly 80 percent of eligible Coloradans have received at least one vaccine dose, suggesting the vaccines are not working as well as they should or as advertised
