There’s a new Quinnipiac poll out today and the news is not good for Joe Biden. Americans give President Joe Biden a negative 33 – 53 percent job approval rating, while 13 percent did not offer an opinion. In November 2021, Americans gave Biden a negative 36 – 53 percent job approval rating with 10 percent not offering an opinion. Among Democrats in today’s poll, 75 percent approve, 14 percent disapprove and 11 percent did not offer an opinion. In a November poll, 87% of Democrats approved

A "red wave" in Congress is useless if the Republicans that are elected are a bunch of RINO Republi-Can'ts. We have seen this happen before. This may be the last chance the Republicans have to save our republic. But if the "red wave" brings in a bunch of new John McCains or Paul Ryans, it's over!!! Constitutional conservatives are the only chance we have to save this nation before it becomes a 3rd world cesspool!!!

I will never vote for another Republican. Socialism cannot be eradicated until Republicans are cleared out of the way. Slimy Vichy collaborators.

You reflect the mood of a lot of conservatives in my W TX area, #1. We are disappointed too often by a “conservative” guy who said all the right things and had the perfect Repub resume. We put him in Congress and he disappears in the wallpaper except when Kevin sends him out with particular talking points. The boldness gone. The leadership is his new boss not the Christian schmucks back home who expect him to ever stick HIS neck out! The “red wave” is only as good as the new House and Senate leadership. RINOs or near-rinos only get in leadership. We have seen it since forever. Kevin has been trained by the top rats (Ryan) for decades. I can’t even discuss Mitch. Our conservatives over in the Senate are too scared of him to say boo.

Negative space watch: you hear almost nothing from the Dems these days about their 'black and brown alliance.' It was the usual combination of entitlement, assumption and gaslighting, especially during the Obama days when he and the media delighted in telling white people their days were few. It was also the usual primitive racial tribalism so beloved by Obama who, ironically, may be the whitest, most awkward (half) black man on the planet. The so-called brown people, meanwhile, wanted no part of it including being called brown. We might scratch our heads at the seemingly endless supply of Latinos doing landscaping, construction, housekeeping and other trades but regardless of their origin or immigration status they work damned hard. Their view of American cradle-to-grave-welfare-state blacks' self-respect and work ethic is dim indeed. And then there is religion. Latinos are Catholic and faith is a unifying characteristic even if many are not regular churchgoers. There is also family. The nuclear family, with clearly defined, traditional roles for mother and father, is important to them regardless of income level. Cynical Dems expected Latinos to applaud an open Southern border but the opposite has occurred. The problem for Dems, as usual, is that they live in an ivory tower where campaign funding, mutual back-scratching and media spin are the most important things. They believe BLM represents the views of all black people - or they merely portray BLM as such. They also believe, incorrectly, that La Raza represents the views of all Latinos. After decades of pandering, Democrat Joe Biden's ratings with Latinos are worse than his overall rating - a paltry (and still probably generous) 28%. The reason the border remains open now, ironically, is that Latinos are voting GOP and the Dems are determined to punish them - and us - with more illegals.

SO WHAT. Does anyone out there think Mitch and Kevin are serious about undoing the damage Biden has caused? The Republican Party betrayed President Trump in order to help Joe be President, now suddenly they are going to undo what he has done? HOW? Joe is suddenly going to build the board wall? Not the one around the White House, the other wall. And the Keystone Pipeline, is Joe going to suddenly reverse that decision? No, America is screwed because Mitch and Kevin screwed it. "What difference at this point does it make" if they are in charge?

There are three real conservative women who are running against Nancy Mace in the primaries here in Charleston, SC. Mace ran as a conservative, was promoted by President Trump without whom she would have lost, and then promptly stabbed him in the back before she even took her seat in the House. She’s a RINO who will be gone this time next year. This is a scenario which needs to be repeated all over the county and not just with House members but with ALL members of congress.

We must do our best to educate the republicans to the fact that 2022 is their last chance. IF they do not fix the swiss cheese voting system, IF they do not achieve both majorities or IF they continue to do nothing while the democrats walk all over their spineless backs, the new party will be ready to go by 2024. Enough is enough.

I see a problem with THREE good conservative running against ONE disappointing RINO. The split vote will allow the incumbent, through name recognition and gullible loyalty, to prevail. If only true conservatives could get together for a preliminary heat, pick the most likely to succeed, and run that one in the primary.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown announced new orders aimed at businesses as the number of cases and hospitalizations from COVID-19 rise in central Texas. The governor’s office responded by reminding them that his executive order on mitigation mandates overrule their local orders. Mayor Adler signed the new orders requiring businesses to post COVID-19 signage. The orders are called “protecting customers and employees and preserving adequate workforce capacity orders.” All businesses are required to post generic mask and vaccine signage when Austin-Travis County is in Stages 3, 4, and 5. Austin is in Stage 5 now.

A week from hell? Indeed, and a self-inflicted week from hell, which hasn’t escaped notice — even at CNN. Last night, Erin Burnett fact-checked Joe Biden’s claims on Tuesday that his election-federalizing project separated the righteous from the racists, especially when it comes to Georgia’s supposedly objectionable “restrictions.” Burnett didn’t compare Georgia to Biden’s home state of Delaware, which had been the target of much criticism, but instead looked at deep-blue New York. Which state makes it easier to do early voting? To get absentee ballots? You’d never guess from Biden’s rhetoric, Burnett pointed out

The U.S. may be on the verge of collapse due to right-wing threats on democracy, according to a recent New York Times piece that called to intensify “war games” for scenarios concerning the 2024 presidential elections such as “insurrection, secession, insurgency and civil war” in order to avert “political decay” of the country. A Thursday New York Times essay, titled “We Need to Think the Unthinkable About Our Country,” begins by deeming the U.S. perhaps “even more alarmingly fractious and divided” one year after the January 6 Capitol riot.

Thanks to the United States Supreme Court’s epic hit, Dementia Joe’s OSHA vaccine mandate has been struck down. But even as far back as December, the handwriting was on the wall. After the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the preliminary injunction on the OSHA mandate back in November, companies like General Electric and Union Pacific decided to put a pause on their push to force-vaccinate employees. Others have since followed suit. From NBC News: A growing number of health care systems and other companies, including Amtrak and General Electric, are suspending mandates that require employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
Sabato: GOP Could Win Its Biggest Congressional

Political prognosticator Larry Sabato has been gazing into his crystal ball at the University of Virginia for 20 years and has seen it all — the Democratic wave of 2008, the GOP tsunami of 2010, and smaller gains and losses from both parties. But Sabato looked at all the factors affecting this year’s midterm election — redistricting, Biden’s unpopularity, GOP messaging — and has concluded that the Republican battle cry for 2022 should be “Drive for 35” — winning a net of 35 seats would give the GOP 248 seats in the next Congress. It would be the largest majority the Republicans have held since the Great Depression.

One of the great cultural critics of the past half-century has died. Terry Teachout was an acclaimed author, a jazz connoisseur, a dance scholar and a drama critic for the Wall Street Journal. The paper reported that Teachout died on Thursday at a friend's home in Smithtown, N.Y. He was 65 years old. A genial, cosmopolitan writer with a learned but accessible style, Teachout was born and raised near Missouri's bootheel, in the southeast part of the state. He remembered growing up as the musical-theater-loving son of a hardware salesman in his 1991 memoir, City Limits: Memories of a Small-Town Boy.

It’s been 48 hours since President Joe Biden gave a train wreck of a speech in Georgia and told the American people that if you don’t agree with changing the Senate rules on the filibuster and/or federalizing elections, you are no better than prominent racist Democrats of the past including Bull Connor, George Wallace, and Jefferson Davis. For those who believed Biden’s campaign promises of being a “uniter in chief,” it was a shocking moment, a dramatic turning point in his presidency.

Federal authorities on Thursday charged Stewart Rhodes, the leader and founder of the extremist far-right Oath Keepers militia, and 10 other people with seditious conspiracy and other crimes for their alleged roles in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. An indictment alleges that after the November 2020 presidential election, Rhodes and others conspired to oppose by force the transfer of presidential power from then-President Donald Trump to Joe Biden, which included plans to breach and try to take control of the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. The conspiracy allegedly involved the amassing of firearms on the outskirts of Washington, D.C, and distribution to so-called quick reaction force

If this is their way of trying to hide the bad COVID news from the public in order to help Democrats, they’re waaaaaay too late. [T]hese counts only reflect what is reported by health authorities. They do not include most people who test themselves at home, or are infected without even knowing about it. Holidays and weekends also lead to lags in reported cases… For that reason, The Associated Press has recently told its editors and reporters to avoid emphasizing case counts in stories about the disease.

Every time I return to report on a new poll of Joe Biden, I wonder: is there a bottom? And every time, Biden keeps convincing me that he still can find ways to go lower. But I have to say, the new Quinnipiac poll definitely has Biden circling the drain and going down fast. I don’t know how much lower he can go and still not have to resign in utter disgrace. He’s in a death spiral across all categories and all groups. Biden’s approval rating has cratered to 33 percent, with 53 percent disapproving. In November, it was 36 percent approval, so it’s still continuing to go down

President Joe Biden was not making a 'human' comparison between opponents of his voter rights push with racists and segregationists in a speech this week, said the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday. Rather he simply meant to compare the actions of those who opposed reform with the likes of George Wallace and other notorious figures. The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.
