Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva – who describes himself as “a proud Democrat” – has endorsed a Republican running to become California’s Attorney General, the top law enforcement officer in the nation’s most populous state.Villanueva appeared at a press conference on Thursday morning to show his support for Nathan Hochman, a moderate Republican who was appointed to serve as Assistant U.S. Attorney General in 2008 by then-President George W. Bush.Hochman is running against incumbent Rob Bonta, a progressive Democrat closely aligned with the criminal justice reform movement.

Let me translate: A blue-dog democRAT that feels abandoned by the hard left of his party is supporting a RINO instead of a George Soro's financed communist. Hopefully more democRATs feel this way.

I see no sensible reason why a law enforcement officer should be a party member. We live in (after all) a non-communist country.

A couple of thoughts. First, while I kind of like the Sheriff, how can any rational person be a "proud Democrat". What exactly is he proud of? Second, I seriously doubt a Republican can win any statewide election in California, no matter how screwed up it gets.

Montessori Teacher Fights 'Social Justice' 2 replies

I was cancelled from giving a speech at a conference at the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies, because of an article I wrote published by American Thinker criticizing some major Montessori organizations for supporting the social justice movement and implementing its positions. In the cancellation letter I received, I was told that they have plans to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion training for all their instructors every year, and have asked their instructors to integrate those principles into their content area. The following is the reply I sent to them:It is clear that I was discriminated against for disagreeing with the social justice movement.

On Wednesday, CNN's Chris Cillizza was hoping, desperately hoping that this could "finally," after all this time of utter ineptitude and awkwardness, be a "Kamala Harris moment" when she jetted off to Europe to address the crises caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. You could almost see Cillizza rubbing his worry beads of concern in "Is this, finally, Kamala Harris' moment?" It's been a rough first year as vice president for Kamala Harris. Beset by staff departures and lingering questions about how good a fit she is for the job, Harris has struggled to find her political footing.

While the media is focused the conflict in Ukraine, Congress has been occupied debating another massive $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill.This is perhaps the last of attempts by the Democrats to push their agenda through before the GOP is expected to take over early next year.The bill they have got in front of them is divided into two sections: $730 billion dedicated to total non-defense spending, and was passed with 260 votes for and 171 against. $782 billion dedicated to defense funding, and was passed with 361 votes for and 69 votes against. Within these bills, the GOP was able to retain $2 billion of previously-allocated border wall construction funds.

Conservative leaders are rallying around National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Rick Scott’s (R-FL) “11-Point Plan to Rescue America.”Eighty-eight conservative leaders from the Conservative Action Project signed a memo supporting Scott’s plan titled “Conservatives Applaud Sen. Rick Scott’s Plan to Rescue America.”The memo said: Politicians should tell voters what they are for, what they plan to do, and then they have to do it. This is the clarity – and the accountability – that voters want to see from their elected leaders. Conservatives should be talking about our ideas as much, if not more, than we talk about Democratic missteps and overreach.

Claim: President Joe Biden claimed that he “could not afford child care … as a United States Senator” in 1973.VERDICT: Probably False. Biden was a high earner and his sister, Valerie, moved in to take care of his two sons.Biden told House Democrats Friday at their annual retreat that after his wife and daughter were killed in a car accident shortly after he was elected to the U.S. Senate, he commuted daily between Wilmington, Delaware, and Washington, DC, because he could not afford the cost of child care.He made that point as a way of arguing for his proposal to cap child care expenses at 7% of income for individuals

Jussie Smollett, who faked a hate crime against himself in Chicago, was sentenced Thursday. Smollett was found guilty back in December, after he conspired with two men to make it seem as if Trump supporters had attacked him and tied a noose around his neck at 2:00 AM, in the middle of a polar vortex. While he received an initial outpouring of support, including from Vice President Kamala Harris, it quickly became apparent that his story wasn’t adding up. Why was he out after midnight getting a sandwich in sub-zero temperatures? Why didn’t he call the police right away? Why did he leave the noose on until police got there?

President Joe Biden announced on Friday he will revoke Russia's 'most favored nation' trade status over its invasion of Ukraine, another step in the series of harsh economic sanctions he and U.S. allies have imposed on Moscow. And he vowed Russian President Vladimir Putin would pay a 'severe price' if he uses chemical weapons in the Ukraine and said U.S. troops would not join the fight as not to provoke World War III. Biden announced Russia's change in status of a trade partner in lockstep with the fellow G7 nations to make it an even heavier burden on Moscow to carry. The move will also deny Russia the ability to borrow money

CNN continues to undergo massive changes coinciding with AT&T’s corporate handoff to new owner Discovery and the ouster of former company president Jeff Zucker. Zucker left, Chris Cuomo left, and sundry employees did the same as disgusting allegations of pedophilia came to light. Ratings have been in a freefall ever since Brandon was inaugurated and over-the-top, fake news about Donald Trump couldn’t be manufactured for its unthinking viewership anymore. Covid panic porn has likewise lost its luster. So, in a battle for survival, the “news” network’s owners are realizing that simply making up hysteria after hysteria might not be a viable long-term plan.
LOL: Biden Makes a Bold Prediction About

Conventional wisdom is that the 2022 midterms will be a political bloodbath for the Democrats. For starters, historically speaking, the party in power typically loses seats. But on top of that, Biden’s poor approval ratings are dragging down his entire party, and more than 30 House Democrats have announced their retirements. Nevertheless, during the Democratic National Committee’s winter meeting on Thursday, Biden insisted his party could defy history. How? All they’ve got to do is replicate their 2020 enthusiasm. “If we do that, we’re going to keep the House and keep the Senate — and add seats,” he claimed. Good luck with that. I suppose it’s Biden’s job

The 28-year-old AOC-backed candidate facing a run-off against centrist Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar had a long-term affair with her former high school teacher, can exclusively reveal. Jessica Cisneros was in a sexual relationship with educator-turned-lawyer John Balli, now 51, and called him 'babe' in a 2011 text professing her love when she was 18 — and he was 41. The ultra-liberal would-be Congresswoman began a sexual relationship with him after he began dating his future second wife Sandra Ramirez in May 2011. But the secret lovers had a painful split when Balli and Ramirez wed in July 2011.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that Americans should expect to continue paying increased prices on everyday goods for the next year, offering a reversal from her previous forecast that record-high inflation would soon subside. The main culprit, she told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Thursday, was Russia’s war against Ukraine. Ms. Yellen‘s claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin is to blame for America’s inflation woes echoes that of the Biden administration writ large, which has received criticism for dubbing the phrase “Putin’s price hike.” “I think there’s a lot of uncertainty that is related to what’s going on with Russia in Ukraine,” Ms. Yellen said on the network.
