Liberals proclaim midterm success by GOP
could spell end of democracy in America

Original Article

Mainstream media pundits and Democrats politicians alike have seemingly decided that a red wave by the GOP in the 2022 midterms will ruin democracy as we know it. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., set the tone earlier this week when he predicted the upcoming midterms could actually be the end of free elections in America. "I’m worried that if Republicans win in the midterm elections that voting in this country as we know it will be gone," Swalwell said on MSNBC.


Democracy “as we know it” is the key phrase here

We're not a democracy. We're a representative republic. I hope it does spell doom for their communist ways, but the milquetoast, limp-wristers in the GOP will manage to mess it up inside a month.

OP hits it square on the nose FTA: "I’m worried that if Republicans win in the midterm elections that voting in this country as we know it will be gone," Swalwell said on MSNBC. And, when he says as "WE" know it, meaning as DEMOCRATS know it, and likely have done for the past decades.

The Democrats are UNSCRUPULOUS and will intentionally SAY ANYTHING which they judge will dupe/confuse/mislead as many people as possible. They'll make it catchy and carefully construct their statements. Lying is a way-of-life for them because they INTEND to fool you. WHY? Because you CANNOT be TRUSTED to support their communistic policies when you get to know the truth. Otherwise you would vote against their "fairness" agenda. Fairness (to you) is the very LAST thing that they seek. Lets GO Brandon. FJB.

How do you "end" something that never existed in the first place. As any intelligent American knows, we live in a republic, not a democracy. And, from what I have seen, the Republicans are working hard to save that republic from the evil intentions of the Demon-Rats. But you can never accuse a single Demon-Rat of having read and understood the Constitution, or using logic, reason, or facts in anything!!!

Be very wary. Lots of their hand wringing will make non Dems complacent thinking the election will be a blowout and won't show up. I'm sure the Dems are figuring out how to cheat in new and improved ways. Between vote harvesting, illegals, mail in ballots and 'fixed' machines this isn't over. If they do win, it will be worse because they will say they have a mandate.

Boy I hope so, then we could get back to being a Representative Republic again, right? We might have Freedom up the wazzoo as a nation, guaranteed by the constitution, but we have never been a democracy. So yes, I hope for complete destruction of the current liberal agenda come November. That would be a very nice birthday present for me at that time.

Guidance issued by the Biden administration states certain individuals may be considered "high risk" and more quickly qualify for monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals used to treat COVID-19 based on their "race or ethnicity." In a fact sheet issued for healthcare providers by the Food and Drug Administration, the federal agency approved emergency use authorizations of sotrovimab – a monoclonal antibody proven to be effective against the Omicron variant – only to patients considered "high risk." The guidance, updated in December 2021, says "medical conditions or factors" such as "race or ethnicity" have the potential to "place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19,"

Six more important issues than Jan. 6th 2 replies
Posted by Moritz55 1/7/2022 11:06:30 AM Post Reply
Here are six things Americans care more about than Jan. 6th. 1.) Cost of Living Is Too High The average household in the United States spent around $3,500 more in 2021 “to achieve the same level of consumption of goods and services as in recent previous years (2019 or 2020).” These are the findings released by the Penn Wharton Budget Model, a nonpartisan, research-based initiative. Low-income households are hit the worst. Excessive federal government spending will increase the risks of inflation — which drives up the costs of food, gas, and housing, along with other consumer items. More spending will likely make it worse.

After the "Squad" member faced backlash for the images, she latched onto a comment made by former Trump adviser Steve Cortes, who took a shot at her boyfriend’s foot attire. "If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet," she tweeted, adding "Ya creepy weirdos."

DeSantis was asked about this during a press conference Monday after progressive Rep.

McWilliams, a Serbian immigrant, has lived in the country for decades and boasts a successful career in law, finance, and banking policy. "When I immigrated to this country 30 years ago, I did so with a firm belief in the American system of government," McWilliams wrote in the letter.

My Christian upbringing, my time in a public charter school, and my history teacher’s use of the Socratic method provided a foundation I needed to withstand it all. Too many of my Gen Z peers aren’t on such solid ground, however. The nuclear family and American education are disintegrating—and traditional values are disappearing along with it. This leaves teenagers with no framework nor principles by which they can heroically live. It’s my generation’s void.

Hospitalizations of U.S. children under 5 with COVID-19 soared in recent weeks to their highest level since the pandemic began, according to government data released Friday on the only age group not yet eligible for the vaccine. The worrisome trend in children too young to be vaccinated underscores the need for older kids and adults to get their shots to help protect those around them, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since mid-December, with the highly contagious omicron variant spreading furiously around the country, the hospitalization rate in these youngest kids has surged to more than 4 in 100,000 children, up from 2.5 per 100,000.

The liberal wing of the Supreme Court embarrassed itself Friday with a slew of false claims about COVID-19 during oral arguments over Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.

We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators,” Sotomayor claimed.

Politico Playbook ran an unwise story about the “wise Latina” Justice Sotomayor purportedly dining with Democratic heavyweights after one of the most ridiculous, fact-free performances by any Supreme Court Justice in U.S. history.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday there is a good chance that the U.S. will follow the "ice-pick"-shaped curve of South Africa's omicron surge of the COVID variant, but cautioned that it could roll through different parts of the country at various times, as previous waves have. "I do think in places that we are seeing this really steep incline, that we may well see also a precipitous decline, but we're also a much bigger country than South Africa," Walensky said in a briefing with reporters.
