contention with win over Walker

Whispers are growing that the Democratic Party’s future lies in Georgia, with Sen. Raphael Warnock, if he can hold off Republican challenger Herschel Walker this fall. Warnock is a uniquely talented and likable politician. Just ask Georgia Republicans. None dare say so on the record. But granted the cloak of anonymity, they are the first to compliment, or lament, Warnock’s attentive Senate staff, travel schedule that regularly takes him to all corners of the Peach State, and knack for avoiding the “radical leftist” label despite his dependably liberal voting record in Congress. Roadblocks aplenty threaten Warnock’s bid for a full


Any Democrat who can speak in complete sentences is potential presidential contender.

Rumor has it that Warnock's main qualification is that he does not think islands float in the oceans.

Hardly unusual - we Pubs take a long time to noticing how many on our side are RINOs and worse. And they keep getting re-elected. It ain't Dems putting them back in office. Often though, we do not have good candidate choices and I'm afraid we don't have enough in the pipelines either.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot slammed Gov. Greg Abbott after buses of migrants from the southern border state of Texas pulled into the Illinois city late Wednesday. "As a city, we are doing everything we can to ensure these immigrants and their families can receive shelter, food, and most importantly protection," a spokesperson for Lightfoot, a Democrat, said in a statement issued Wednesday evening. "Unfortunately, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is without any shame or humanity.

So what’s the polling for President Joe Biden’s new plan for federal student loans, which includes canceling a big tranche of the debt? A new Morning Consult/Politico survey has found that 48% of Americans support Biden’s effort to forgive between $10,000 and $20,000 of debt for individuals earning less than $125,000 a year (or $250,000 for households). Some 43% are opposed to the forgiveness, and 9% are undecided, as shown in the top part of the chart below. Among Democrats, support for Biden’s forgiveness plan is at 72%, while just 42% of independents and 26% of Republicans back it. Among people

The head of McDonald's US operations has publicly slammed a proposed California law that could force large fast food chains to pay workers up to $22 an hour, saying the plan 'should raise alarm bells across the country.' McDonald's USA President Joe Erlinger spoke out in an open letter on Wednesday, arguing that California's plan is unfairly designed and will raise costs further for consumers. He was responding to a bill that could set wages at fast-food chains with more than 100 restaurants at $22 an hour next year, well above the existing statewide minimum of $15.50 an hour for

A Chevrolet Volt owner in Florida was shocked to receive a $30,000 quote for a replacement battery from a dealership, reports CarScoops. The quote in question comes from Roger Dean Chevrolet in Florida, and regards a battery replacement for a 2012 Chevrolet Bolt. The cost of the new battery itself comes in at $26,853.99. Further charges include $33.98 for coolant and $1,200 in labor. Add tax and the total bill comes to $30,842.15. It's a steep price, particularly when a brand-new Chevrolet Bolt with a far larger battery can be had for a base price of $26,595. The enormous figure

As the faculty sponsor of a Gay-Straight Alliance club at her high school, she wants her students to know they are safe with her. This year, Brown found herself quietly repurposing the flag. No longer on full display, it now hangs as a “rainbow background,” partially obscured among posters, photos, a calendar and other trinkets on her class bulletin board.

In the transition from gas-powered vehicles to electric, the fuel every automaker is after these days is cold hard cash. Established automakers and startups alike are rolling out new battery-powered models in an effort to meet growing demand. Ramping up production of a new model was already a fraught and expensive process, but rising material costs and tricky regulations for federal incentives are squeezing coffers even further. Prices of the raw materials used in many electric-vehicle batteries — lithium, nickel and cobalt — have soared over the last two years as demand has skyrocketed, and it may be several years before miners

It is illegal for New Yorkers under age 21 to purchase a can of whipped cream, according to recently-passed state law. The law, which went into effect in November 2021, is meant to prevent teenagers from using canned whipped cream to inhale nitrous oxide, otherwise known as "whippets." "Inhalants are invisible, volatile substances found in common household products that produce chemical vapors that are inhaled to induce psychoactive or mind-altering effects," according to a US Drug Enforcement Administration factsheet. Approximately 1 in 5 young people have used inhalants like whippits by the time they reach eighth grade, the DEA said.

President Biden has formally announced plans to give civilian federal employees a pay raise next year, an election-year promise bound to please government workers struggling with high inflation like the rest of the voters. In a letter to congressional leadership, Mr. Biden said civilian federal employees will see an average 4.6% boost in pay beginning Jan. 1, consistent with his 2023 budget proposal in the spring. The raise includes an across-the-board 4.1% increase and locality pay that will increase by an average of 0.5%. Mr. Biden cited a growing pay gap between federal civilian and private sector employees that have led to recruitment and retention challenges

Pelosi made the comments during an Aug. 26 Roundtable on Women’s Reproductive Health at the University of California, San Francisco. (snip) Pelosi has referred to herself as a “devout Catholic” despite the conflict between her stance on abortion and the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching on the issue.

A Nobel Prize-winning German developmental biologist called the transgender movement’s claims “unscientific” and “nonsense,” and their plans to let teenagers determine their own gender “madness.” In an interview published last week by the German feminist magazine EMMA, Dr. Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard cited hard scientific facts to counter the trendy notion that there are multiple genders. “All mammals have two sexes, and man is a mammal,” she explained. “There’s the one sex that produces the eggs, has two X chromosomes. That’s called female. And there’s the other one that makes the sperm, has an X and a Y chromosome. That’s called male.”

Despite the leftist mainstream media’s best efforts to portray Joe Biden as a rejuvenated president ready to lead his party to midterm glories, the aged and increasingly befogged Biden keeps sidetracking the fake news narrative with his own words and misdeeds. “An alleged diary from Ashley Biden exposed Joe Biden as a creep who took naked showers with his daughter at an inappropriate age.” Joe Biden should not be talking to children. He shouldn’t be talking to or about teenagers, either. Quite frankly, he oughtn’t address or talk about anyone under the age of 21 for the remainder of his presidency.
