Fresh from his deft Martha’s Vineyard gambit, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew into Kansas on Sunday to rally support for Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, now running for governor against incumbent Democrat Laura Kelly. Saul Alinsky, the acknowledged master of forcing poseurs to honor their own policies, could not have done better than DeSantis. No political stroke in memory has succeeded in exposing liberal hypocrisy quite so effortlessly and effectively.

Ron was in Green Bay on Sunday night as well (although I would question the wisdom of doing a political event at 6 pm on a night when the Packers were playing at home at 7:20 pm) to support the Wisconsin Republican candidate for Governor.

DeSantis is great. He is also young and smart. In 2024 he will be Donald Trump's biggest cheerleader. He has plenty of time to move up the ranks, and he knows everything he has to gain, and even more so what he has to lose, if he challenges Trump instead of supporting him in 2024. Because of his loyalty in 2024, in 2028 DeSantis will get the full support of the MAGA voters as well as the full support (and lots of money) from Donald Trump himself. It's a win/win/win for Trump/DeSantis/the American people!!!!!!

Yeah, yeah, tell a leftist that the covid jab doesn't prevent covid and they'll say in a stupid nasaly tone, "The 'vaccine' is not supposed to prevent covid; it just means that you won't get as sick." The leftist media and pols will tell their idiot constituents that DeSantis is the new orange bad guy, and they'll believe them. If they haven't seen the hypocrisy of their betters by now, I'm not sure most of them ever will.

DeSantis has already pranked the media twice this week. First at Martha's Vineyard; Second at the Sussex County Airport, in a rural back 40 of Delaware, where they waited all day on the ramp for the flight that wasn't. It'll be great if he continues to ignore Newsom.

Olathe is just a few miles from my home, I wish I had known that this event was happening, I would have stood in line for certain. I'd support DeSantis just fine. I'd vote for him or Trump. If I had to choose between the two in a primary....that would be VERY difficult. Not sure how I'd go.

Nearly HOUR - long speech? Especially, following two other speakers? As much as we love Pres. Trump, our eyes glaze over after 20-30 minutes. A good speechwriter can boil down EVERYTHING that needs to be said in 30 minutes. Use the buzz phrases that get the cheers and applause and THANK the people for coming. Yes, Gov. DeSantis is on his way, but sir, unlike Pres. Trump, PLEASE be on time. Trump/DeSantis '24.

I don't know why this author mentioned President Trump, several times and somewhat dismissively. The rally wasn't for him nor was he any of the speakers. While I believe that Trump should disappear until the mid-term election is over I am not happy that supposedly conservative writers are determined to tear him down.

I hope all the other Republicans are paying attention. Trump and DeSantis fought back against the Dems and people rallied to them. They are tired of spineless RINOs.

This past week New Orleans reclaimed the title of America’s deadliest city after seeing murders jump 141% over the last couple of years. In New Orleans, the murder rate is a staggering 52 per 100,000 people. That compares to the national average of 6.9, the highest it’s been in a quarter century, and the 50 per 100,000 in Venezuela, the most dangerous country in the world. If New Orleans were an outlier, it would be a shame; the fact that it’s not is a tragedy. Instead, New York, Chicago, Portland, LA, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and other American cities are part of the club.

“VINEYARD HYPOCRITES!” announced a banner towed by a light aircraft for about 45 minutes earlier this week over the Martha’s Vineyard hamlet of Aquinnah, which until 1997 was known as “Gay Head.” The demonstration was just one of many hard knocks Vineyard residents have endured since 48 mostly Venezuelan migrants were removed from the “sanctuary” island by the National Guard last Friday. After receiving basic support, but no invitations to stay on an island where 63 percent of homes are vacant in the offseason, the migrants now reside at Joint Base Cape Cod (JBCC), a military installation in mainland Massachusetts.

For years, most of the media, the federal Justice Department, and other Democrats have waged a vendetta against Donald Trump, perpetuating endless investigations in search of crimes. So far, their efforts have failed, but that’s not stopping another leftwing loon from boarding the Trump Derangement Syndrome train. Since New York Attorney General Leticia James, could not find a crime, she has promised voters that she would destroy Trump, and now since election is coming soon, she’s suing Trump and his family for alleged fraud for supposedly claiming their property was worth more than it is.

Letitia James, the New York attorney general, has filed a civil lawsuit of $250 million against Donald Trump, his children, and the Trump Organization. She alleges "Staggering Fraud." There may be fraud in the reason for her action. The focus may start with President Trump, but he is just a means to an end for the Democrat party. It ends with you, the taxpayer, and the citizens of the United States. As "Deep Throat" says to Robert Woodward in All the President's Men, "follow the money." In June of 2021, I wrote in American Thinker how Letitia James has President Trump in a Catch-22.

The desperation of the Democratic Party appears to know no bounds. On Tuesday, the House Oversight Committee engaged in a markup on a resolution of inquiry (ROI) that requires President Joe Biden to hand over documents related to his family's international business schemes, including and especially as it relates to his son, Hunter. During the markup, however, two Democratic members decided to pivot to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), and remarks he made at CPAC that were taken out of context. This includes Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), who serves as the committee's chairwoman but who won't serve in the next Congress

In 1990, Ken Burns was the great talent behind The Civil War, an epic nine-episode PBS documentary that he made for PBS. It was comprehensive, gorgeous, heartbreaking, and riveting. His later work wasn’t as good but it was still damned good. But Burns, like so many leftists, is now so riddled with hatred for Republicans that he cheapens his every utterance and destroys his own legacy. The latest example is how he’s used his upcoming documentary, The US and the Holocaust, to bash modern Republicans and cover for WWII-era Democrats.

In December of 1776, General Washington and his small army were retreating back across New York, New Jersey, and into Pennsylvania. They were hungry, cold, and so lacking in necessities that many men were barefoot in freezing temperatures. Why were they there? Because just five and a half months earlier, the Declaration of Independence had been signed. These men believed in those self-evident truths so much that they were willing to die for them — as Nathan Hale said, his only regret was that he had "but one life to lose for his country."

Recently, the Arizona Mirror revealed that the Republican Party in Arizona is urging Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell to financially support U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters. Masters, who secured a coveted endorsement from President Trump, triumphed in the primaries based on that seal of approval. In the beginning, Masters was trailing his Democrat rival, incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly, by a significant margin of 12 points. But matters have recently swung in Masters's favor, and a recent Emerson College poll has Kelly leading Masters by just two percentage points.
Dogs Bark, Wolves Howl: The Woke Demand
to Be Domesticated

Posted by DW626 9/19/2022 6:09:57 AM Post Reply
Dogs bark; wolves howl. The domestication process that turned wolves into family pets has served the dog well. For most, it meant guaranteed food, shelter, and comfort while being able to stay in a familiar social structure (humans as pack leader, etc.). But there was a trade-off — a big one. That same process trapped domestic dogs in a permanent state of adolescence. Essentially, when one is domesticated, one stops growing up. And that time lock is why Rover barks and does not howl like a wolf — the wolf in the wild is able to grow up and, as with most members of the Canis species, howls

Who knew that residents of woke and progressive Martha’s Vineyard were racist, white supremacist, xenophobes? Former President Barack Obama owns a $12 million estate on this racist island off the coast of Massachusetts. Are the Obamas racists? Other liberal celebrities either live or frequent Martha’s Vineyard, including Oprah Winfrey, Larry David, Bill Murray, John Kerry, and the Clintons. Perhaps they are all racists, too, as the island has become anti-immigration. As NBC News confidently asserts, there is “racism behind anti-immigration rhetoric,” rhetoric which we are now hearing from Martha’s Vineyard. Democrats and the left do not believe in a sovereign national border, instead encouraging illegal immigration and amnesty

The far-left state of California further embraced neo-paganism this week when Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill into law allowing the practice of composting dead human beings to better combat climate change. Citing the high CO2 emissions associated with cremation, the bill will give people the option to give their dead remains over to a process known as natural organic reduction (NOR) should they not want to be buried or cremated. “The process involves placing the body inside a long, reusable steel container along with wood chips and flowers to aerate it – allowing microbes and bacteria to break down the remains,” according to the Daily Mail.

The end is near. For Putin’s military options in Ukraine, that is. Wednesday in Moscow, Putin said he will call up reservists and hold political referenda in captured Ukrainian territory. And yet again, he threatened to use nuclear weapons if Russian territory is in danger. Despite the scary language, Putin is not fooling anybody in NATO. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg lost no time pointing out that Russia doesn’t have enough weapons to equip more troops. White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby immediately said the speech showed Putin was struggling. And at the UN, President Biden denounced Putin’s war. Putin’s biggest problem is that Russia is losing and Ukraine has

The chief executive of the largest U.S. bank was testifying before a House panel with other bank executives. Representative Rashida Tlaib, the Michigan Democrat, claimed that preventing temperatures from rising more than 2.7 degrees in the coming decades would require no new fossil fuel production. “Please answer, yes or no. Does your bank have a policy against funding new oil and gas products?” Tlaib asked. “Absolutely not and that would be the road to Hell for America,” said Dimon.

A diversity and inclusion training by the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado instructs cadets to use words that "include all genders" and to refrain from saying things like "mom" and "dad." The slide presentation titled, "Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do," obtained by Fox News Digital, advises cadets to use "person-centered" and gender-neutral language when describing individuals. "Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'" the presentation states. "Use words that include all genders​: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’"
