I don’t know how many times I have to say this because I’ve been around for a while, and I’ve seen this same thing happen again and again and again when squish GOP senators try to negotiate with the Democrats about immigration. I know it’s meant to bully mental defectives, but when it comes to the GOP Senate caucus, that rule does not apply since some of its members apparently cannot learn from experience and must learn through pain. Here is a message to you, spineless Republican senators…. Stop trying to do immigration deals with the Democrats.

I take issue with Kurt on this one. The Senate Republicans (RINOS) don’t WANT to make an immigration deal with the communists. At least not “deal” as you and I would define it. Guess it depends on what the definition of “deal” is.

Don't be fooled. None of our electeds want an end to the invasion. They see the invasion as a means to permanent rule by the the government and not by the governed. This is what tyranny looks like...

The wholly owned asset of the CCP, Mitch McConnell is all in for any deal to screw America. For those who don't know, The CCP controlled family gave Mitch $25,000,000. as a wedding present when he married their "Honey Trap" daughter. Those guys were pretty smart their investment has paid off a zillion times over.

I'm drawn to the earlier article about who directed the bribe offer to Kari Lake. If the Senate is owned by its largest donor, the US Chamber of Commerce, then the Board members are calling the shots for the puppets (including McConnell) in the Senate. You can easily find them. What enterprising reporter will dig deeper.

There are people who are fooled, because they don't want to see the truth. There are those who refuse to listen and understand because if they did, they could not be excused from taking action. There are those who are fooled because the trouble in their lives make them fearful of involving themselves. They say nothing. See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil... For them, nothing ever changes, no matter how miserable they are. But, there is a forth monkey. That monkey sees clearly listens carefully, and speaks his mind. The first three hate him, because he won't leave them alone. He occasionally inspires them to change, for a little while, and the world changes. The current iteration of that active monkey sports a mane of orange hair...

I saw one of the Republican senators on TV a couple days ago. There is a portion of them who really want a deal. He was saying we have to have one because although it doesn't give us what we want it is better than nothing. I was ready to smash the TV. They are either really corrupt or really stupid. Probably both. It's sickening.

The more I learn about D.C. politics through what I read and see, the more I believe that most Republicans are compromised; it is not that they are foolish. They are "guilty as charged." Only they are never charged because too many in the justice system are compromised as well.

President Biden told a crowd in Las Vegas on Sunday that he recently met with Francois Mitterrand, the French president who has been dead for nearly 30 years. The comments came while Biden was warning of the dangers of a potential second Trump presidency, as he aimed to shore up enthusiasm ahead of Tuesday’s Democratic primary in Nevada. Biden recounted a story he has told many times during his presidency, about a meeting he had with French President Emmanuel Macron during a G7 meeting in England, some months after Biden had taken over the White House.

Chevrolet Went the Anti-Bud Light Route

Chevrolet has done the impossible this holiday season: it produced a commercial without any woke nonsense, which was beyond refreshing. No Dylan Mulvaney shenanigans, no virtue signaling, and no liberal drivel being forced down our throats. I don’t know if America’s executives have learned that going woke is a ruinously expensive venture. The car company might release a lefty ad later. For now, let’s enjoy this tearjerker. The ad starts as a family visits their grandparents over the holidays, where the grandmother is exhibiting signs of dementia. She doesn’t even acknowledge her young granddaughters seeing her.

Back in my day, cheerleaders were hot and gorgeous, at least at the University of Colorado/Boulder where I watched them. They were the best-looking girls on campus, and that was saying a lot at the time in Boulder. After I graduated and left Boulder, they were evidently unable to attract the same quality without me. In fact, they resorted to male cheerleaders. There were sniggers that the male cheerleaders were probably a bit light-footed, if you know what I mean. That was before light-footedness, if you know what I mean, became the Next Big Thing. But male cheerleaders mostly faded

While their people languish in poverty and are treated as human shields, the leaders of Hamas live billionaire lifestyles. The terror group’s three top leaders alone are worth a staggering $11 billion between them and enjoy a life of luxury in the sanctuary of the emirate of Qatar. The emirate has long welcomed the leaders of the terror group and installed them in its luxury hotels and villas at the same time as hosting a vast American military presence. Now Republican Tennessee Congressman Andy Ogles is co-sponsoring a bill that would strip Qatar … as a key US ally.

The comments by Blinken during testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee marked the first time the Biden administration has publicly declared its desire for the PA to return to the Gaza Strip, after privately raising the idea with regional partners since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war. “At some point, what would make the most sense would be for an

But when he ascended a Pride parade float dressed in his drag persona, Katya Furacão, he saw a dazzling young drag performer he’d never before encountered. Fonseca watched Kitara Ravache, who wore a red bejeweled dress. The newcomer had appeared from nowhere but was already at the top of the local gay scene, dancing alongside the most established drag queens in this Rio de Janeiro suburb.

The race is on to prevent the sinking of a cargo ship off the Dutch coast which is carrying almost 3,000 vehicles, including 350 Mercedes-Benz, as it burns out of control with an electric car believed to be behind the deadly fire. At least one crew member died and others were injured after fire ripped through the Fremantle Highway, a 18,500-ton car-carrying vessel. Rescue helicopters and boats evacuated 23 crew members from the Panamanian-registered ship. Officials have said there are 'many' wounded.

Drones struck Moscow on Tuesday but were neutralised, Russia said, in what one politician called the worst attack on the capital since World War II, while Kyiv was also hit from the air for the third time in 24 hours. Since Russia invaded its neighbour in February last year, the war has largely been fought inside Ukraine, though Moscow has reported some attacks on its territory and blamed them on Ukraine, including an alleged assassination attempt against President Vladimir Putin. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said two people were injured, but not seriously, while some residents in two lightly damaged apartment

Kagan wrote, “ . . . the majority opinion is trained on this dissent in a way majority opinions seldom are. Maybe that makes the majority opinion self-refuting?”

What Excites Biden? Things are becoming so strange, so surreal, so nihilistic in contemporary America that the chaos can only be deliberate. Chance, incompetence, and accident could not alone explain the series of disasters we now daily witness that are nearly destroying the country. When the ailing and non-compos-mentis president now speaks, he rarely becomes excited about Iranian or terrorist provocations. Biden seems restrained even at Russia’s outlawry in Ukraine. The atrocities of Hamas now earn only measured objections from Biden. He does not seem too angered by the collapse of the border. Nor do the deaths of 100,000 Americans to imported fentanyl earn a loud trademark Biden scream. No, what

DENVER (AP) — In the summer of 2020, Gerard Magliocca, like many during the coronavirus pandemic, found himself stuck inside with time on his hands. A law professor at Indiana University, Magliocca emailed with another professor, who was writing a book about overlooked parts of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment. He decided he would research the history of two long-neglected sentences in the post-Civil War addition that prohibit those who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” from holding office. Magliocca posted a copy of his research — which he believed was the first law journal article ever written about Section 3 of the 14th Amendment — online in mid-December of 2020,
