Republican Nick Howland flipped a Jacksonville, Florida, city council seat in a heavy Democrat district that swung for President Biden in 2020. Duval County election results from Tuesday night showed that Howland defeated Democrat Trayce Polson with a sizeable majority of 68,599 votes versus her 64,113 votes – 51.69 percent versus 48.31 percent. “With Howland’s victory, Republicans hold a 14-5 margin over Democrats in the City Council,” reported First Coast News. The seat was left vacant in September 2021 due to the death of Tommy Hazouri. Though a special election was held in December of that year, neither of the four candidates in the race were able to garner 50 percent

Anything, anywhere that Brandon won in 2020 is suspect. We may see a long, slow, deep flood in progress rather than a tidal wave but guaranteed the democrats will be wiped out. This NWO fiasco is the desire of a couple of nutcase billionaires but to normal people it's not an option.

Gee, somebody forgot to print enough fake ballots again. Looks like the Dems are going to have to kick up that fake ballot percentage from 5% to 25%. Next thing you know, some Dem city council candidate in Podunk Village is going to have 82 million votes and out poll Sleepy Creepy Crooked President Uncle Joe!

It's not only Republicans that are asking questions like: ''Why is gasoline suddenly so expensive?'' ''Why has grocery shopping gotten so expensive?'' ''Why are my kids still forced to wear those stupid, useless masks in school?'' ''What the hell we doing in Ukraine while our own border is wide open?'' ''Why are thousands of Afghani's being flown to America while Americans are left to rot over there?'' There are dozens more questions regarding bidens destruction of America that are being ignored by the so-called 'media.' Onward and Downward.

While I do believe that a lot more "independent" voters will vote for Republicans in November, I think this election probably shows how un-motivated the Demon-Rat base in right now. A 20% turnout in a "heavy Demon-Rat district", for a Demon-Rat candidate that got lots of support and campaigning by big-time state Demon-Rats and still lost, speaks volumes about how dejected the average Demon-Rat voter must be feeling right now. Just not a whole lot motivating them to go to the polls. Given what the Demon-Rats are doing on the state and federal level, a lot of Demon-Rat voters have to be totally depressed and are sitting out elections like this one.

A US official confirms Ukraine President Volodymyr rejected an offer from the American government to evacuate Kyiv.

A majority of American voters say that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not have invaded Ukraine had former President Trump still been in office, according to a new survey released on Friday. A new Harvard Center for American Political Studies (CAPS)-Harris Poll survey released Friday found that 62 percent of those polled believed Putin would not be moving against Ukraine if Trump had been president. When looking strictly at the answers of Democrats and Republicans, 85 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of Democrats answered this way. However, 38 percent of all Americans polled believed that Putin would have invaded Ukraine even if Trump had been president. A majority of Americans polled

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin took to the airwaves to try to speed up his victory in Ukraine. Looking dead-eyed into the camera on Friday, Vladimir Putin gave one of the most bizarre speeches of his 22 years as Russia’s leader, a directive that managed to sound alarming even in a week when he has ordered tanks into Ukraine and missile strikes on Kyiv. “Once again I speak to the Ukrainian soldiers,” he said, addressing his enemy. “Do not allow neo-Nazis and Banderites to use your children, your wives and the elderly as a human shield. Take power into your own hands.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is calling upon European citizens with combat experience to travel to Ukraine and fight against Russia. Zelensky’s plea to Europeans came in a speech Friday: If you have a combat experience in Europe and do not want to look at the indecision of politicians, you can arrive in our state and protect Europe with us where it is now urgently required. You have already been blackmailed with gas. Already humiliated. They already want to split and divide you the same way as they are trying to divide Ukraine today.

As RedState reported earlier on Friday, Vladimir Putin’s plan to overtake Ukraine is not going particularly well. The four-pronged attack has stretched supply lines thin and weakened Russia’s ability to strike the decisive blow it was looking for. Specifically, plans to take the capital city of Kyiv have fallen well short of expectations and the resistance there now represents a huge problem for Russian forces starting a bloody urban conflict in the face. Multiple airborne assaults meant to take the city have been rebuffed since the invasion began, and Ukraine has now struck a major blow on that front, downing an Il-76 transport plane. With a capacity

Things don’t seem to be going as smoothly for the Russian army as Putin had anticipated. This article in the London Times sums up the situation on the ground and is consistent with other accounts I have seen: Pentagon officials said that Russian forces had lost momentum and were not advancing as quickly as their intelligence estimates had predicted. “They are not moving on Kyiv as fast as they anticipated it going,” one said. Despite Russian forces assaulting air defence and missile systems, Ukraine’s air force was flying sorties. The country’s Ministry of Defence celebrated the reporting for duty of dozens of former pilots. There are lots of stories of Ukrainian heroism;

Moscow has been trying to exert tighter control over the internet and big tech for years, something critics say threatens individual and corporate freedom, and is part of a wider crackdown against outspoken opponents of the Kremlin.

As intense fighting in Ukraine continues as a result of Russia’s invasion, a new report offers some shocking details about how inept Joe Biden’s strategy was in trying to prevent the current carnage. Per The New York Times, the Biden administration actually gave classified intelligence to the Chinese communists in an effort to gain their support against Vladimir Putin. Predictably, that completely backfired and only helped Russia in its march toward war. Over three months, senior Biden administration officials held half a dozen urgent meetings with top Chinese officials in which the Americans presented intelligence

Joe Biden is about as hideous a failure as any president has ever been in United States history.  He bests Jimmy Carter, he bests Barack Obama, he bests Warren Harding, he bests Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan for his sheer cowardice, corruption, inability to read the mood of the country, and senescence.  Every last thing he's done has been a failure, and some of them big failures indeed.  He's truly the worst president we have ever had, and that's becoming a bipartisan consensus. So how do Democrats deal with this?  According to the Washington Examiner: Attention to national news is on the decline overall, but for the first time in four years, Democrats are reporting less interest in it

The Russian invasion of Ukraine isn’t going as easily as I think Vladimir Putin thought it would go. As we noted earlier, they are facing some tough fighting from the Ukrainians as well as thousands of protesters in Russia who have come out against the war. That’s quite something, given the oppressive state of Russia and how they would face immediate retribution. Yet, protesters have come out anyway. Ukraine fought back to recapture an airport the Russians had taken. So, Russia isn’t going to be able to do what they wanted because they haven’t met the goals they were trying to meet by now – which was to seize all

President Joe Biden will nominate federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Friday to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, which would make her the first black woman on the high court's bench should she be confirmed by the Senate. Breyer announced his retirement last month after 28 years on the Supreme Court, effective when the current term ends this summer. That paved the way for Biden to fulfill his 2020 campaign promise of nominating a black woman as a Supreme Court justice.

The Secret Service is telling Republican investigators that it cannot find communications related to Hunter Biden’s travels for 2010, 2011, or 2013 — when President Joe Biden was the vice president. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent the Secret Service a letter last month seeking unredacted records tied to Hunter Biden’s travels between January 2009 and January 2017. They asked for full travel records and criticized the agency for years of “inappropriate redactions” — especially related to a controversial Kazakhstan trip in 2014. The senators also lamented that three years of documents seemed to be missing entirely.

In an ideal world, maybe we could ignore what's happening in Ukraine but we have to see the world as it is, not how we want it to be: Russia is calling and wants its Ukraine back. I generally appreciate Tucker Carlson, but every time he discusses Ukraine and Russia, I bristle — especially when he contends that America has no interest in Ukraine. I know some of you might agree with Carlson, but you can be a solid conservative who is just as war-weary as the next guy and still see a security interest in Ukraine without being a neocon.
