Non-Partisan Elections Are Non-Existent

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 10/13/2022 10:09:07 AM

In today’s very partisan environment, where Democrats and Republicans have completely opposed views on critical issues, it is imperative to know the political registration of all people running for local offices — especially city councils and school boards. For most Americans, the political party they are registered with is an introduction to their personal values and core beliefs. Learning a city council and school board candidate’s party affiliation should be the first step in reviewing their bona fides. However, we can no longer assume party affiliation is enough information.

West Virginia's Supreme Court used to be a far left institution. So much so that the state was for years named a judicial hellhole. The makeup of the court changed in 2005 and became much more conservative. After Republicans took control of the West Virginia Legislature in 2014, one of the first things they did was to make judicial elections non-partisan. An unbelievably stupid ans shortsighted move.

In a town of just a couple of thousand in rural Texas, one would think that people could get past part. Unfortunately the author is correct and Democrats want to destroy everything, everywhere.

Here we go… Republican US Senate Candidate Kathy Salvi released a statement this week after the Schulyer County ballots omitted her name. Kathy Salvi said: “On Tuesday, October 11th, it was brought to my attention that ballots drafted by the Schuyler County Board of Elections, and approved by the Illinois State Board of Elections, incorrectly listed one of my primary opponents as the Republican nominee for United States Senate. Our campaign legal team immediately took action and worked with the Schuyler County State’s Attorney. While we came to the best remedy – to sequester the hundreds of ballots that were distributed

MSNBC’s national affairs analyst John Heilemann said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that he was “blown away” by the actions of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Heilemann said, “People used to mock. I think some people on the right still do mock when people say our democracy was under attack, that we were close to losing our democracy. When you see every iteration of these videos but particularly this one, this iteration, you realize like it’s not hyperbole.”

Joe Biden has exaggerated and lied about so many things in his political career, frankly, it’s hard to keep up with them all. But one of the things that he has frequently exaggerated about in the past year has been a fire that occurred in his home in 2004. His story has changed every time he tells it, as is typical with Joe Biden’s stories. When you’re not telling the truth, you can’t keep up with the lie that you told before. So it’s been an ever-evolving story. When we first covered it in November of last year, Biden claimed his house had burnt down “with my wife in it,” and that

A judge has thrown out one of the five charges brought by special counsel John Durham against Igor Danchenko, who is accused of lying to FBI agents about the anti-Trump Steele dossier. District Judge Anthony Trenga dropped a charge related to the allegation that Danchenko lied to the FBI about speaking with Democratic operative and Clinton family ally Charles Dolan about the dossier. The judge ruled in court on Friday, the fourth day of Danchenko’s trial, that the charge was too weak to send to the jury, Fox News reported.

Reports of flu and other respiratory illnesses are higher than what would normally be seen in the U.S. at this time of year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday. "We've noted that flu activity is starting to increase across much of the country," especially in the Southeast and south-central U.S., the CDC's director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, told NBC News. "Not everybody got flu vaccinated last year, and many people did not get the flu. So that makes us ripe to have potentially a severe flu season."(Snip)"Flu is on the rise, but it's also all of these other viruses that got knocked off kilter," Esper said.

President Joe Biden during a visit to Los Angeles on Thursday dismissed gas prices in California reaching nearly seven dollars a gallon. The president spoke with reporters briefly after getting tacos with local Democrats in Los Angeles. When asked to react to prices reaching nearly seven dollars a gallon in California, Biden replied, “Well, that’s always been the case here.” Biden argued that gas prices were still down nationwide from the previous highs in the summer, even though they have gone back up as much as 30 cents a gallon in some areas. “You know, it’s not, what, nationwide, they came down about $1.35,” he said. “And they’re still down

A new CNN analysis fretted that American voters might care more about the cost of their food than they do about the Jan. 6 hearings. Noting Thursday’s Consumer Price Index data which showed inflation reaching 8.2% in September, as well as a cost-of-living index at its highest level since 1982, CNN's Stephen Collinson noted polling has repeatedly reinforced that the economy is the top concern to voters heading into the midterm elections. The data included information about frozen potato products, as well as pork products, which have increased 10% and 5.5%, respectively. "While it would be too simplistic to say

Quelle surprise: Biden renews COVID "emergency"

Never let a crisis go to waste, Rahm Emanuel once advised. Add to that this new axiom: Never let your emergency powers expire. As incompetent as Joe Biden might otherwise be, he’s proven adept at following both. Again: The Biden administration extended the Covid-19 pandemic’s status as a public health emergency for another 90 days, preserving measures such as expanded Medicaid and higher payments to hospitals. The decision follows comments President Biden made in September describing the pandemic as over. Some Republican lawmakers said afterward that the administration should wind down its pandemic response and the emergency designation.

Queens is taking the largest share of migrants into emergency shelters set up by the city — fueling what the borough’s president on Thursday called a “powder keg” of crises and creating a “recipe for a social and economic disaster.” Queens was housing 4,782 migrants, or 32% of the total 14,777 placed in emergency shelters as of Wednesday, according to data compiled by the Department of Homeless Services and obtained by The Post on Thursday. That share is more than one-sixth greater than the 27.3% that Queens residents contribute to the city’s total population, according to 2020 census data. “It’s a powder keg in Queens at this point,”

The flag flap erupted when Sarah Ecke, a math teacher at Connetquot High School in Bohemia, refused to take down a Rainbow flag and a Progress Pride flag, Newsday reported.
