Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 1/26/2023 11:25:25 AM

Representative Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) announced Thursday that he will be launching a campaign for Senator Dianne Feinstein’s California seat in 2024. “I look forward to campaigning hard in this race, meeting Californians where they are, and listening to what they want from their next Senator. I hope to earn their votes and their trust,” Schiff said in a statement. Schiff was recently removed from the House Intelligence Committee by Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) in response to the former’s conduct as a lead investigator during the Trump impeachment hearings.

He could easily win the Dim nomination. His history should be fun to run against. That said, California voters seem to be a special breed of stupid nowadays.

To the majority of California voters, being a lying, rotten, anti-American person who releases classified information are all seen as positive attributes.

Re #2, that is simply not true. The Dems have about 40% of the registered voters. Not even a simple majority. Rumors that Californians are bad people are just that: rumors .Not based upon fact. Why do they need to do that? What does it achieve? I often wonder where those who spew them live. Oddly, they never mention their perfect states.

Adam Schiff has been elected to the House by a district that is largely Jewish and Armenian. He panders to them outrageously. He has never faced the reality that is a statewide election. I’d say almost any Dem could beat him. (N, not Swalwell.)

He's running against an almost equally reprehensible California Dem, Katie Clark. Her kid (not sure of the gender, nor is mom or the kid) was just picked up for Antifa rioting in Boston. It would be nice if both of them would lose, but that might be expecting too much out of Californians, who continue to elect Democrats left and leftier. Maybe somebody can do a nice parody ad of these two pencil neck geeks pushing DiFi in her wheelchair over the cliff.

No. 4 you must not have read the article. FTA: Feinstein is currently the oldest sitting senator and is expected to announce her retirement in the coming months. However, on Wednesday, Feinstein did not add any clarity to the situation, noting that she would make a definitive statement about whether she’d run for re-election “probably in the coming months.”

Schiff can do more damage if he's in the Senate. All in the name of the 'public interest'. After all, we must look out for the public's interest. Look at the history who has been elected in California: Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi, Newsome, Nader. Schiff has got to be the favorite.

Washington - U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken will postpone his trip to China next week following a suspected Beijing-operated spy balloon looming over parts of Montana, Bloomberg reports. The White House and Pentagon referred queries to the State Department, which didn't immediately return CNBC's request for comment. Blinken was slated to visit Beijing next week to meet his Chinese counterpart Minister of Foreign Affairs Qin Gang, as well as possibly Chinese President Xi Jinping. Earlier on Friday, Chinese authorities said that the balloon operating over U.S. airspace was a civilian weather balloon intended for scientific research.

He, too, worries about the longterm effect of the COVID-19 vaccine on the female hormonal balance, a key to fertility. In an undercover video released by Project Veritas, he discusses the possibility that hitherto unknown aspects of mRNA technology in the COVID-19 vaccine could affect women’s hormonal and menstrual cycles. Dr. Walker said, “There is something irregular about the menstrual cycles.

The Pentagon has been tracking the balloon for several days as it made its way over the northern United States, Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder said. He added that the US military decided against shooting the balloon down. "The balloon is currently traveling at an altitude well above commercial air traffic and does not present a military or physical threat to people on the ground," Ryder said.

The House Oversight Committee on Thursday demanded that Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (SPEC) John Kerry release documents pertaining to his negotiations with the Chinese Communist Party. In a letter obtained by National Review, committee chairman James Comer (R., Ky.) accuses Kerry of using his SPEC role — a cabinet-level position that was created by President Biden and does not require Senate confirmation — to engage “in activities that could undermine our economic health, skirt congressional authority, and threaten foreign policy under the guise of climate advocacy.” The Thursday letter represents the second such request for documents related to Kerry’s climate negotiations with America’s chief geopolitical rival;

The woman was identified as Eunice Dwumfour, a Republican councilwoman, the officials said. Sayreville Mayor Victoria Kilpatrick said she was "shocked and saddened" to learn of Dwumfour's death, saying she was "taken from us by a despicable criminal act."

Harris County Texas is huge. If it were a state it would rank 25th in population, just behind Alabama. Almost 5 million people live there. Nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives hail from or represent the county, as well as 24 state representatives. At its center is Houston, which is reliably Democrat, but the county as a whole is a swing district these days with both Democrats and Republicans winning elections. In other words, how well the elections are run matters a lot, not just to the citizens of the county itself, but to the overall balance of power in the state and country. Guess what?

The Federal Reserve is raising its benchmark interest rate a quarter of a percentage point, officials with the central bank said on Wednesday, its eighth consecutive hike as policy makers try to subdue inflation. The latest increase in the federal funds rate — what banks charge each other for short-term loans — is smaller than the Fed's 0.5 percentage point increase in December as well as a string of three-quarter point moves over the course of 2022. With the latest increase, the Fed's target interest rate is set in a range between 4.50% and 4.75% — its highest level since late 2007. The Fed said its campaign to curb prices

DeSantis blocked the course on grounds that it violated the Sunshine State's Stop WOKE Act that was passed last year. "I think it’s trash," Proctor said about the curriculum.

Donald Trump is not stupid. His opponents have always underestimated him because of the colloquial way he talks–sounding vastly different than most people in the highly educated class. Not sounding educated, they assume he isn’t and by extension isn’t smart. But in recent weeks Trump has been acting as if he is stupid, and I have to say I am surprised. Trump has been attacking Ron DeSantis on the COVID lockdown issue, arguing that the governor’s reputation as a freedom fighter is unearned. Trump even implies that DeSantis was something of a COVID fascist, while Trump himself was fighting to reopen the American economy. That is a profoundly stupid line of attack.
