Longtime U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Dallas, announced Saturday she is not running for reelection after serving nearly three decades in Congress. “I have gone back and forth … the whole time because of the pleading and the asking, but as of January … the year after next, I will step down,” Johnson said during an event in Dallas. "I will retire, and let me assure that I will also recommend to you whom I feel is the best to follow me." Johnson added she is looking for a "female that is qualified." First elected to Congress in 1992, Johnson


Because it won't be much fun 'to serve the people' after your party is thrashed next year.

She was/is not a big fan of CRT. "Johnson fears the legacy that discrimination leaves for youth. "I am frightened to see young people who believe that a racist power structure is responsible for every negative thing that happens to them," she told the New York Times. "After a point it does not matter whether these perceptions are true or false; it is the perceptions that matter." She got caught several years ago trying to send 15 "Congressional Black Caucus" Scholarships to immediate family and the family of her district director...even tried to have the checks sent straight to them rather than to the schools. She also backed Edwards over Obama, until Edwards finally dropped out.

Good riddance to this past-your-useful-date professional tick. Thirty years in congress. What a disgusting distinction. We should never, ever celebrate longevity in government. We should celebrate those who go to serve as citizens serving their fellow man by coming and going. They are the real representative heroes, not a parasite like this one. And that goes for ANY representative, regardless of party or philosophy.

President Joe Biden celebrates his 79th birthday on Saturday, November 20 by marking a new milestone in presidential history but likely adding to speculation about his own political future.

So far-reaching are the implications of his statement that the interview in which he made it may well prove a turning point in the fight against the vaccine fraud that is being perpetrated on the peoples of the world. In a November 12 podcast session with the New York Times, Fauci was forced to admit the fact that the vaccines do not reliably protect their recipients from serious Covid or death.

President Biden called on state and local leaders to follow suit of his administration to advance policies that aid and protect LGBTQ people. “Transgender people are some of the bravest Americans I know. But no person should have to be brave just to live in safety and dignity. Today, we remember. Tomorrow—and every day—we must continue to act,” Mr. Biden said in a statement.

For many, it was a brave and long-overdue airing of an important and distressing subject: a painstaking investigation into claims that predatory trans women have been pressuring lesbians for sex, published on the BBC News website. But a leaked email shows that the influential trans lobby group Stonewall attempted to suppress the investigation before it had even been published–and made the extraordinary claim that debating the issues was equivalent to ‘sexual racism’. This latest move to try to stifle free speech will add to growing concerns about the influence of Stonewall, which is paid millions of pounds for advising public bodies–including Government departments, police forces and universities

The relationship between Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and their respective staffs has been on rocky ground for months. As RedState previously reported, the vice president and her camp have complained about being abandoned, even blaming racism as a possible factor, while the White House has fretted at Harris’ sheer incompetence and inability to garner support on her own. Those tensions have led to lots of speculation about what exactly happens in 2024. Harris is clearly a terrible candidate, something she showed during the 2020 presidential primary, but she’s also the heir apparent until Democrats forcibly remove her from that position.
