Former Vice President Mike Pence is dropping anchor in South Carolina as he prepares to mount a 2024 White House bid. Pence is headed back to the Palmetto State in April and May as part of a deliberate strategy to build support with conservative activists and Republican operatives in the state that hosts the third primary on the GOP nominating calendar — and first in the South. Leading this effort is the plugged-in national Republican strategist Chip Saltsman as well as Josh Kimbrell, a state senator described as an “ambassador” for Pence in South Carolina, with other party insiders quietly assisting.


If Trump runs, he'll get crushed.

Not voting for him. I am ok with his decision on Jan 6 but he doesn't 'fight' much. We need a fighter. It's either Trump or deSantis for me.

He had his chance and blew it. As a loyal VP for 8 years his chances would have been quite good. But he took himself out on Jan 6.

I put the blame for the border fiasco of drugs, terrorist, rape and child trafficking on Pence. I put the blame for Afghanistan and the murder of 13 Marines, the drone strike on a bus load of kids and the 80 billion dollars of high end American military gear given the terrorist on Pence. The list of debauchery will grow in the coming years and it is all squarely on Pence.

Pence is a career establishment Republican politician who the Democrats would stomp into the gutter in a future general election. Like most establishment Republicans these days Pence comes across as being a weak wimp.

I agree #1. But will add that he seems like ballast, not an engine. He’s just not an on camera guy. He looks like some guy dancing that really wishes he didn’t have to. That said, there must be money- or something- in running for president. Running, not winning.

Pence and Ted Cruz can battle it out in a futile contest for top dog, wasting tons of money in the attempt, when far stronger candidates are the obvious winners (Trump, DeSantis, Jim Jordan, and others are far superior).

January 6th is just a small part of why I refuse to vote for Pence. He embraced corruption instead of standing up like a Christian man. You know, like his boss President Trump. There is also strong speculation out there that Pence was the source of all the leaks that were damaging to Trump as well. Never trusted Pence, never will. Cannot trust a man who willingly betrays his nation for a mansion in his home state.

Dr. Scott Atlas, a real man, and an adviser to President Trump, said when Fauci and Scarf Lady would get angry, Pence would fold like a cheap suit (paraphrasing). That tells me Pence has no spine, no guts, no courage to stand up for the Truth or for our nation. And that's what happened when Pence betrayed Trump about the stolen election. Pence is a frightened little man. Can you imagine what would happen if he was President and China or Russia said Boo?

Looks like Pence has a severe case of egotism/narcissism/delusion... Is this supposed to be funny? Does he truly believe he was right in going along with the big steal and that Republicans (true ones) will support him? He needs to get out of "politics" and see what the real world is like... I believe he couldn/t, at this point, win Dogcatcher... likely never again!

The establishment Republicans and RINOs will push forward anyone other than Trump. This is the same party that nominated Romney and McCain. I like what Trump did for the country and believe 2020 was a massive fraud; however, do I want Trump as the next president? It is a shame that out of this entire country our choices are subpar on so many levels. Will DeSantis run? Who knows! What is becoming obvious is that this country is completely off the rails.

Get your popcorn and beverages at the ready. It is going to be SO MUCH FUN to watch him be scorned, humiliated, mocked, derided, heckled and made fun of. American Patriot constitutionalists need to get out in droves and pack every event he hosts. He's a coward. Remember him at the capitol, oh, Mr. Big shot... bumping elbows with pukelosi, getting a coin for his troubles from I can't remember who, during the rape of the American Republic on January 6, 2021. There's film of it. Check it out. He's an elitist. He needs to pay for what he did to this country. Pack his events and humiliate him the entire time. DOWN WITH TYRANTS Psalm 58

I agree with poster who basically said Pence is not ready for prime time. He's a back bencher. Colorless. And then there's the fact he fell down on his last job to do as VP. I don't think he is aware of the vitriol that will be thrown at him when he is seriously in the race. If he appears at a venue close to me, I will be there with a sign.

One more thing…when Pence was governor of Indiana he signed a freedom of religion bill which was aimed at preventing lawsuits against bakers, photographers, etc who refused to participate in homosexual “weddings” due to their religious beliefs. The LGBTwhatever crowd came after him and he “unsigned” the bill. Never, ever, ever trust him!

DeSantis strikes against Biden immigration

Posted by Happy Place USA 2/3/2022 11:10:20 AM Post Reply
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody filed an amended complaint saying the Biden administration’s latest immigration policy is unlawful. The new policy, called "Parole + Alternatives to Detention," releases illegal immigrants within the borders of the United States without starting a legal process for removal. The complaint states that federal immigration officials are assisting migrants in resettling around the country and that the Transportation Security Administration is “accepting immigration arrest warrants as identification sufficient to board a domestic flight.” “The Biden administration has not only consciously refused to enforce immigration laws, but it has also developed an operation to secretly resettle illegal aliens into communities across Florida

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of polls. For one, I’ve never been polled by anyone. For another, the number of people being polled often strikes me as too small a sample from which to draw broad conclusions. Also, those samples more often than not tend to oversample one group, Democrats, let’s say, over another group, which again leads to questions of accuracy. Bottom line, I don’t trust ‘em and tend to ignore them in preference to the only poll that actually counts, the election itself. I’ve often asked myself, what would I do if I were to be contacted to participate in a poll.

A five-year-old girl who was raped by a stranger has been murdered by her family in a so-called 'honour killing', according to reports. The young girl's parents allegedly killed their daughter in 'cold blood' after she was kidnapped and raped by an unidentified man in the Al-Shahba area of Syria on November 18. The child's body was found in a garbage container in Manbij, north Syria, on January 27 before being transferred to Al Furat Hospital which lies in eastern Aleppo. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) have said that Internal Security Forces have arrested several family members of the girl.

The names are part of a 2015 defamation lawsuit brought against Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre, who has long claimed that the British socialite and her cohort, Jeffrey Epstein, sexually abused her as a minor, pimping her out to his high-profile friends, including Prince Andrew. Giuffre claims Maxwell aided in the abuse.

A new super-mutant HIV strain that makes infected individuals ill twice as fast as current versions of the virus has been detected in the Netherlands. The new mutant—called the VB variant—has infected at least 109 people, according to a study by Oxford University. The strain damages the immune system and weakens a person's ability to fight everyday infections and disease faster than previous versions of the virus. It means those who catch this strain could develop AIDS more quickly. The VB variant also has a viral load between 3.5 and 5.5 times higher than the current strain, meaning infected people are more likely to transmit the virus

FBI Director Christopher Wray claimed the FBI is working just as hard to punish participants in the 2020 George Floyd riots as those involved in the Capitol riot, though neither the numbers nor his own boss's words seem to back him up. Wray made the improbable claim in response to questions during an appearance earlier this week at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. “I mean, absolutely," Wray said. "We have one standard, which is, I don’t care whether you’re upset about an election, upset about our criminal justice system, whatever it is you’re upset about, there is a right way and a wrong way to express what you’re upset

The call for a cry room comes after students took offense to constitutional law scholar Ilya Shapiro’s tweets criticizing President Joe Biden’s “affirmative action” Supreme Court nomination process.

Conservative lawmakers in Iowa are pushing to have cameras installed in public school classrooms to allow parents to watch via livestreams—as the debate over critical race theory continues to rage. The lawmakers introduced the bill this week that would see cameras put in almost every K-12 classroom, with the exception of physical education and special needs classes. Teachers who fail to keep the camera recording, or obstruct its view, could be fined up to 5 percent of their weekly salary each time they are caught doing it, according to the bill.(Snip)Florida recently introduced a similar bill to have cameras and microphones installed in public school classrooms.

President Joe Biden will launch a slate of new actions Thursday aimed at combating rising crime and gun violence in major metropolitan areas across the country. Biden will announce the new programs during a visit to New York City on Thursday with Mayor Eric Adams and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul."The President is committed to serving as a strong partner for communities on the frontlines of the fight against crime.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday urged US athletes competing in the Beijing Winter Olympics to keep mum on China’s human rights abuses because the country’s government is “ruthless.”Pelosi issued the warning during testimony at a Congressional-Executive Commission on China. She acknowledged the US has a moral obligation to condemn the rights violations – but insisted the Olympic games were not the proper venue for athletes to voice their concerns.“If we do not speak out against human rights violations in China, because of commercial interests, we lose all moral authority to speak out against human rights violations anywhere,” Pelosi said.

Mainstream liberal news has largely ignored a new study showing that COVID lockdowns had virtually no effect on stopping COVID-19—because they 'already have their own narrative written', according to the study's author. A review by three respected economists from Johns Hopkins University, Lund University in Sweden and the Danish think-tank the Center for Political Studies, found that restrictions imposed in the spring of 2020—including stay-at-home orders, masks mandates and social distancing—only reduced COVID mortality by 0.2 percent.(Snip)But the study was largely ignored by mainstream American media outlets, with just, the Wall Street Journal, Fortune and the Washington Times publicizing it.

[Tweet] Sarandon's photo added the words, "So, if all these cops weren’t needed for CRIME that day, doesn’t that mean they aren’t needed ANY day?" It is unclear if the photo was made by Sarandon or a re-shared post.
