They say its not who votes, but who counts the votes. However, with this kind of polling, this early,if they Dominion the election next year, there will be blood,tar,and feathers in the street. And it won't be Republican!

It wasn't the machine as much as the mail in ballots. I don't trust Commiefornia but in many other places I hope many Republicans' volunteer to be poll watchers - especially Republican Lawyers.

We win, we maintain the status quo, we lose and the Leftist push us further into the absurd. We need a new plan that gives us more than a party on election night. What are we going to do differently this time?

Democrats bail from their seats at the midterm because they have a dufus president that everybody hates and know they will lose the majority. However, the corollary was different for Republicans in 2018. They bailed from their seats at the midterm when they had a successful, dynamic and wildly popular president to make sure they lost the majority. Uniparty in action ensuring the "balance" of power. FJB, Nancy Pelosi, UpChuck Schumer, Kevin McCarthy and China Mitch. Fill those seats with MAGA people!

P.S… CA 47th District has a Cooks PVI of D+13. Last election no Republican won any D+ districts. Dems won some R+ districts, the greatest upset was an R+5 that went to the Dems. Obviously, flipping a D+13 district is unrealistic, (or worse). We should pick up all the R+ districts and maybe a couple D+1 or D+2, though “incumbent” is worth a PVI point or two on Election Day. Be nice to see a retirement that isn’t D+10 or greater.

If we replace Dems with RINOs we gain nothing at all. We must have good, sensible, solid constitutionalists to vote for. No more Deep State RINOs that talk about 'being conservative' and turn out to be leftists in disquise. Sen Flake is an excellent example. There are many more, like Romney. McConnell should be gone, too.

The coming midterm election is an opportunity for us to restore sanity to our politics. But, that will not happen if the voters are not give decent Republican candidates. The GOP needs to vet their candidates. To often in the past they have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by backing anybody that calls themselves a Republican. We don't need any more RINOs.

Atlanta — An Associated Press review of every potential case of voter fraud in the six battleground states disputed by former President Donald Trump has found fewer than 475 — a number that would have made no difference in the 2020 presidential election. Democrat Joe Biden won Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and their 79 Electoral College votes by a combined 311,257 votes out of 25.5 million ballots cast for president. The disputed ballots represent just 0.15% of his victory margin in those states. The cases could not throw the outcome

A large wave is coming,” a senior Biden administration official told Axios on Tuesday, predicting “plenty of hospitalizations” in the months ahead. The Washington Post reported that top federal health officials from the Centers for Disease Control outlined their latest prediction models showing a large increase in cases and shared them with senior administration officials. One health official familiar with the briefing described the latest scenario as “daunting.”

Americans are returning to normal despite the corporate media’s attempts to drum up alarm over the supposedly “highly transmissible” Omicron variant of COVID-19. While corporate media outlets panicked and revived permanent pandemic narratives and talk of more lockdowns, a new poll from CBS News and YouGov found that of 1,731 people surveyed, 81 percent said they have not rearranged plans because of the Omicron variant or the hype surrounding it. In fact, a majority said they still plan to keep their normal holiday traditions and routines. Sixty-eight percent still plan to “gather with friends and family,”

DeSantis said now those duties, mainly immigration, were be left to state governments to handle. “So, the border is obviously a disaster,” he said. “And some people say, Well, that’s a problem for Texas or Arizona.

After New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced a statewide mask mandate on Friday, she was immediately met with resistance. Small business owners, already struggling this season, were not happy with being put in a position of forcing customers to wear masks or face fines. However, county officials said they would not waste resources enforcing the mandate. Fifteen counties across the state are reportedly refusing to comply with the mandate in a stunning rebuke of the governor. Rather than standing her ground, Hochul chose to cave. After putting the counties in charge of enforcing the mandate, on Monday she said she wouldn’t force them to comply—effectively backtracking on her own mandate

While the Biden team has been falsely pitching that the bill was going to be fully paid for, the CBO revealed the true costs if the social programs they were planning became permanent. The way they’re trying to hide the true cost of the bill is only putting in the cost of the programs for a couple of years. The CBO score revealed the true cost if the programs were kept. It would cost nearly $5 trillion and add $3 trillion

he producer price index jumped 9.6 percent in November compared to the same month last year, the highest year-over-year increase since record-keeping began in 2010. The PPI increased by 0.8 percent during the month of November 2021. Prices still climbed 6.9 percent when excluding food and energy costs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The PPI tracks changes in the sale price of domestically produced goods, and is a key gauge of inflation.

It’s a start. In run-off elections for Houston ISD board trustees, two conservatives defeated their incumbent Democrat opponents. National politics look to have influenced voters as they rejected hot button issues like Critical Race Theory and face mask mandates in Houston public schools. Both conservative candidates used the issues on the campaign trail. There has not been conservative representation on the HISD school board since 2019. It is a nine-member board so clearly, two conservatives are in the minority. It is good news to simply have them on the board.
