candidate won't

Miami - President Joe Biden is coming to Florida next week to campaign with Charlie Crist as he tries to unseat Gov. Ron DeSantis in a battleground state that has increasingly become a Republican stronghold. But Democratic Senate candidate Val Demings won’t be there Tuesday to meet the president in her hometown, Orlando. The divergent whereabouts of the two candidates says as much about their respective campaigns as it does about Democrats' approach-or-avoid conflict with the president, whose approval ratings remain underwater as he nevertheless regains his popularity and starts hitting the campaign trail in the final weeks leading up to the Nov. 8 midterm election.

That's because Crist is running to be appointed to a cabinet post or an ambassadorship. Demmings is running to be elected.

For years Crist has thought of himself like a religious figure, but somebody scared the H out of him!

Put up the “Let’s go, Brandon” banners all over Orlando. It’s appropriate that he’s going to Orlando since that’s where Mickey Mouse parades around.

Governor DeSantis is going to beat the You Know What out of Charlie! Not even close! As for Val Demmings, she isn't going to take Marco Rubio's Seat anytime soon. She doesn't have any accomplishments from being in the House to brag about. Her Campaign Ads only go after Abortion. She brags about knowing what Crime is (she was in the Police Department), but that ad is down too because Rubio put up an Ad featuring many Police Chiefs in Central Florida who are all backing him. They didn't have ANYTHING good to say about Val!

Here in Las Vegas, there are street signs all over town showing our Democratic governor standing with Old Joe Biden. The text reads, "Democratic Dream Team for Nevada." I'm 100% certain our governor's campaign didn't pay for or place those signs.

There is no way that the doddering doofus is regaining his popularity, and truthfully I don't think he ever was popular. I KNOW he didn't WIN the election in 2020.

Judge Allows Arizona’s Near-Total Ban
on Abortion to Take Effect

An Arizona judge ruled Friday that the state can enforce a near-total ban on abortion that had been blocked for nearly five decades. The 1901 law bans all abortions, except in cases in which the mother’s life is in jeopardy. The ruling by Pima County Superior Court judge Kellie Johnson comes in response to a request from state attorney general Mark Brnovich to lift the long-standing injunction that prevented the law from taking effect. Johnson wrote that a judgement and injunction signed in 1973 blocking the law, ARS 13-3603, “no longer has any prospective application.”

Viewers ripped CNN over its promotion of Jake Tapper to its coveted 9 p.m. slot — with some claiming a recent shift in the anchor’s left-leaning reporting to more centrist and conservative-friendly takes amounts to “pandering” and “kissing up” to his new bosses. Tapper’s star is rising as CNN’s new boss Chris Licht has been cleaning house and pushing a more middle-of-the-road approach, moving away from punditry that focused on criticizing the Trump administration and conservatives to boost ratings. “Tapper is trying to survive,” said a media source. “He’s kowtowing to his bosses.” “He’s very ambitious” and “very hard-working” with a “healthy ego,” added another source who had once worked

A protestor ran onto the court and set his arm on fire in the middle of the 2022 Laver Cup in London on Friday. The man wore a white shirt with the words "end UK private jets" written on it. He was quickly escorted off the court after the fire was put out by officials. The protest temporarily halted the singles match between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman. He reportedly ran onto the court after Tsitsipas won the first set and set his arm on fire before security grabbed him. After officials determined the fire did not alter the court, the match resumed
Charges Unlikely in Matt Gaetz Sex-Trafficking Probe 7 replies

Criminal charges will probably not be warranted in the investigation into Republican representative Matt Gaetz’s alleged sex-trafficking scandal, prosecutors have advised the Justice Department. Senior department officials have not confirmed whether the lawmaker will be charged, but the prosecutors claim that a conviction is unlikely to result from the probe, according to the Washington Post. The department typically heeds such recommendations, they said. The prosecutors said the case was undermined by a lack of credibility demonstrated by two key witnesses against Gaetz, including the 17-year-old girl whom Gaetz was alleged to have had a sexual relationship with.

Republicans and Democrats are split on whether hard work results in more financial gain and economic advancement in the U.S. economy, according to a poll from the Wall Street Journal. About 85 percent of Republicans agree that hard work can get anyone ahead, while just 53 percent of Democrats believe that, the poll shows. The two political parties also disagree about how great America is, with more than nine in 10 Republicans agreeing that “America is the greatest country in the world,” while only 61 percent of Democrats feel that way. About 34 percent of Republicans say their generation will do better than the one before, compared to 55 percent of Democrats.

London - Britain's new finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng unleashed historic tax cuts and huge increases in borrowing on Friday in an economic agenda that floored financial markets, with sterling and British government bonds in freefall. Kwarteng scrapped the country's top rate of income tax, cancelled a planned rise in corporate taxes and for the first time put a price tag on the spending plans of Prime Minister Liz Truss, who wants to double Britain's rate of economic growth. Investors unloaded short-dated British government bonds as fast as they could, with the cost of borrowing over 5 years seeing its biggest one-day rise since 1991, as Britain raised its debt issuance

It cleared the chamber on a mostly party-line vote, 229-203, with nine Republicans joining all Democrats to vote for it, even as Republican leaders 'whipped' against the bill.

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

J.P. Morgan Chase chief Jamie Dimon on Wednesday rejected in the strongest terms the idea that the country’s largest banks should stop funding new oil and gas production and exploration. 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.’"
