Posted By: Dreadnought, 3/9/2023 1:34:35 AM

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been hospitalized after a fall at a hotel in Washington, DC. “This evening, Leader McConnell tripped at a local hotel during a private dinner. He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment,” a spokesperson for the Kentucky Republican said in a statement. No additional details were provided. The 81-year-old is the Senate’s longest-serving GOP leader, known for helping the party achieve key Republican priorities, including stocking the Supreme Court with conservative justices, passing Trump-era tax cuts and frequently thwarting Democrats’ legislative agenda.

Anyone want to start a betting pool on if he was tripped or pushed?!?!?!? The Communist News Network (CNN) is so full of baloney (which is a nicer thing to say than what they are really full of). What a pile of BS: The 81-year-old is the Senate’s longest-serving GOP leader, known for helping the party achieve key Republican priorities, including stocking the Supreme Court with conservative justices, passing Trump-era tax cuts and frequently thwarting Democrats’ legislative agenda.

Hope this was a "push" towards retirement. (You can't say EARLY retirement for him, but I wish him a full recovery and remaining years at home with his wife and family)

After my mom turned 80, her doctor repeatedly said, “Once you fall at your age, it’s the beginning of the end.” Just go home to Kentucky, Senator, and enjoy the time you have left. There are more important things in life than accumulating power and sucking up to Commies. Hope you can figure that out before it’s too late.

I'm okay with Mitch moving on from Minority Leader, but we do need him to stay in the Senate until the good people of Kentucky elect a Republican Governor in Fall 2023. Then Mitch can retire to his Scrooge McDuck lifestyle, counting his Chinese-provided wealth, and that Governor can appoint a solid conservative to the post before the 2024 election. Double or nothing when Mitch does retire, he stays in the Swamp.

CNN's description of McConnell is so complimentary you'd think they've found common cause with the supposed Republican. McConnell's hatred for Donald Trump and his lock-step stance with Senate Democrats would seem to indicate he does not represent Republican voters so much as he represents what's wrong with elective politics these days. It's a get-rich-quick scheme used by both Dems and Repubs alike and to hell with principles and what their voters want.

#42~ Needed and well stated. / Reading such venom posted at this salon is a tremendous disappointment and begs the question, what is happening to this salon's heretofore dignified and compassionate reputation that becomes sullied by such shameful venomous language. While there may be agreement and justification in annoyance with the behavior of others, especially when that behavior jeopardizes the nation, wishing evil on individuals at the root of or participating in putting this country in harm’s way is not appropriate from people of faith. It is written: “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles, lest the LORD see it and be displeased, and turn away his anger from him. Fret not yourself because of evildoers, and be not envious of the wicked, for the evil man has no future; the lamp of the wicked will be put out.” (Proverbs 24:17-20) Ldotter #3 is commentary more appropriate to this salon and, most certainly, from people of faith. An opinion is expressed kindly and followed by compassion. Commendable.

#60~ Sometimes the written word can be misunderstood. If “Take your fake outrage elsewhere” is aimed at #55, it is not “outrage” and it is not “fake.” It is heartfelt disappointment seeing such rhetoric posted to this highly esteemed website. If not aimed at #55, an apology is extended for assuming the criticism was so intended. This said, an attempt was made in #55 to make clear that destructive actions by others (that includes politicians) is not appropriate and warrants justified anger; however, such anger can be expressed in ways other than being malicious. What is clear, evil people and their evil deeds will be judged accordingly in time to come.

LV, not you. Long time poster known for using multiple aliases to amplify self importance is highly selective in use of outrage to control the discussion. Seldom in the direction of limited government antiSwamp, anti lobbyist, antiBush, antiRove conservatives. Admittedly, the tone here is a little too gleeful, but McConnell has made it all to clear that this is us against them, elitists vs populist grass roots ProTrump republicanism, and the most recent revelations of J6 exaggerations if not coordination, and his post Tucker anger at the release of the tapes suggests that he knew all along what a sham this was and is.

Stablecoin USD Coin (USDC) lost its dollar peg and slumped to an all-time low on Saturday after Circle, the U.S. firm behind the coin, revealed that some of the reserves backing it were held at Silicon Valley Bank. Circle has $3.3 billion of its $40 billion of USDC reserves at collapsed lender Silicon Valley Bank, the company said in a tweet on Friday. The coin broke its 1:1 dollar peg and fell as low as $0.88 shortly after 0800 GMT on Saturday according to market tracker CoinGecko. It recovered slightly to trade around $0.90 by 1120 GMT.

After they lead him to the Senate chamber, he says a prayer for their help on the Senate floor. Chansley was sentenced to 41 months in prison for pleading guilty to “obstruction of an official proceeding.” He never hurt anyone, that wasn’t even alleged.

"It means a working-class (American) is going to have to pay more to put food on the table, clothes on their backs and gasoline in their cars, because this incredible spending will only fuel inflation. These Biden taxes will only reduce the take home pay for all Americans," Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., told Fox News Digital in an interview Friday.

“What, me worry?” Think of the Kevin Bacon gif from Animal House – you know, where the panicked crowd is rushing past him after the parade, as he tries to keep everyone calm. A little Zen breathing might be in order, considering we have the brainless trust that’s in charge. The sudden collapse of a little-known, California-based tech lender fueled market chaos on Friday and sparked fears of a wider contagion that some experts worry could upend the US banking sector. Silicon Valley Bank — a 40-year-old lender to startups and venture capitalists — became the second-biggest bank casualty in US history as it was abruptly shut down.

Prominent conservatives throughout politics and media reacted to the sudden closure of the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) on Friday. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is already standing firm against bailouts for the bank, and many are pointing to “Bidenflation” as a driver of the implosion. Gaetz appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room where Bannon asserted that the closure was “100 percent because of Biden’s policies.” He predicted the federal government would be pressured for a bailout next week and asked Gaetz how he would respond.

The sudden collapse of Silicon Valley Bank has thousands of tech startups wondering what happens now to their millions of dollars in deposits, money market investments and outstanding loans. Most importantly, they're trying to figure how to pay their employees. "The number one question is, 'How do you make payroll in the next couple days,'" said Ryan Gilbert, founder of venture firm Launchpad Capital. "No one has the answer." SVB, a 40-year-old bank that's known for handling deposits and loans for thousands of tech startups in Silicon Valley and beyond, fell apart this week and was shut down by regulators in the largest bank failure since the financial crisis.

The Biden administration is soon set to approve ConocoPhillips' Willow Project, a major oil drilling project on Alaska's North Slope, according to a congressional source familiar with the details. The decision will be announced next week, the source confirmed. The expected approval is a victory for Alaska's bipartisan congressional delegation and a coalition of Alaska Native tribes and groups who hailed the drilling venture as a much-needed new source of revenue and jobs for the remote region. It is a major blow to climate groups and Alaska Natives who oppose Willow, arguing the project will hurt the president's ambitious climate goals and pose health and environmental risks.

Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer for former President Donald Trump, is set to testify Monday to a grand jury in New York City, setting the stage for a potential indictment of Trump, NBC News reported. Trump is being investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office in connection with a $130,000 hush money payment Cohen made on his behalf to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election to keep her quiet about her alleged sexual liaison with Trump years earlier. Cohen on Friday met for more than seven hours with officials from the DA’s office with his attorney, Lanny Davis.

Davenport, Iowa - Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made his first appearance in Iowa on Friday, an unmistakable flirtation for a top-tier Republican presidential contender that brings his expected bid for the White House a step closer to reality. Though DeSantis doesn't plan to make a formal announcement on his political future until May or June, the Iowa visit, followed by a stop in Nevada on Saturday, highlights the increasing priority of his presidential ambitions and a desire to send a clear signal to GOP donors, activists and potential campaign staff in early-voting states about his intentions. At a stop at a casino in the eastern Iowa town of Davenport, DeSantis acknowledged

Kamala Harris may suffer from aphasia 49 replies

Kamala Harris's verbal utterances are bizarre, repetitive, and often not completed. (snip) Aphasics may do this to hide the fact that they can literally not hold onto the meaning of their narrative, to carry it to completion. So, they make up an ending to the story and then perhaps flip into a semantically weird ending. Harris often simply repeats her first sentence. This is not planned for a rational purpose, and she often solves her semantic confusion by bursting out in stereotypical laughter, with gestures, to encourage her listeners to think she just did a funny.

I watched what I thought was a serious journalist blow the first night of the supposed big J6 tape release. But I couldn't help noticing that he picked stuff we already knew -- and he was WEAK. Where was the video of fed provocateurs and violence coordinators? Capitol Police flash bang and rubber bullet/baton attacks on an unarmed citizen crowd? The deceptions about the barricades? The beatings of unarmed women and lots of unarmed mem, one, Roseann Boyland who died? What was so hard about demonstrating to the public that the J6 was a Reichstag Fire scam?

Senate Republicans found themselves shaken and disoriented Thursday after finding out their leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (Ky.) was in the hospital after tripping at a private event, raising questions about his health and future leadership of the GOP conference. McConnell, who in January became the longest serving party leader in Senate history, has led the Senate GOP conference since 2005 and has helped guide his colleagues through some of the biggest moments in recent history — the 2008 financial collapse, the near default of the U.S. government in 2011, the fiscal cliff of 2012, the two impeachment trials of …

America’s top medical schools, worried they have too few minority students, are doing something about it. They are lowering academic standards for admission and trying to hide the evidence. Columbia, Harvard, the University of Chicago, Stanford, Mount Sinai, and the University of Pennsylvania have already done so. The list already tops forty, and more are sure to follow. Of course, the universities won’t admit what they are doing – and certainly not why. All they will say is that their new standards add “equity” and “lived experience.” Unfortunately, adding those factors inevitably lessens the weight given to others.

A Democratic delegate proposed a law in Maryland that would bar anyone under 25 years of age from being charged with felony murder. Delegate Charlotte Crutchfield, a Democrat, made the proposition through the Youth Accountability and Safety Act, House Bill 1180, local news outlet WBFF reported. A defendant in Maryland can be charged with felony murder if the person commits a murder during a felony crime, such as robbery. Crutchfield and supporters of the bill say that the brain is not fully developed before age 25, so issuing so harsh a sentence is unfair. "We don't allow children under 18 to do a myriad of other things under the law," state

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday threatened to launch an "information campaign" in the U.S. against Republicans, telling Mexicans and Hispanics not to vote for them unless U.S. lawmakers change their treatment of Mexico — an apparent threat of election interference by the head of state in response to U.S. calls for action against cartels smuggling fentanyl across the border. "Starting today we are going to start an information campaign for Mexicans who live and work in the United States and for all Hispanics to inform them of what we are doing in Mexico and how this initiative by the Republicans, in addition to being irresponsible,

Every July, Minot Air Force Base, the only one to contain two ‘legs’ of the nuclear triad, celebrates ‘Diversity Day’. Held at the Jimmy Doolittle Center, named after the hard-charging Air Force pioneer who led the first air raid into Japan after Pearl Harbor, Diversity Day showcases “many different cultures along with other diversities such as religion and disabilities” representing the various cultures at Minot Air Force Base.” Jimmy would not approve. A culture notably absent from the Diversity Day festivities at Minot is a culture of competence. Two Air Force commanders have been fired after their units failed nuclear surety inspections.
