The September Surprise

What’s a Democrat to do? President Biden’s poll numbers seem set in quicksand. Now the special counsel’s justification for not recommending charges against Biden for having “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials” is damning: Biden’s memory has such “significant limitations” that the special counsel believed he could not convince a jury that Biden has a “mental state of willfulness” that a serious felony (or, presumably, serving as president) requires. Cue the campaign commercials. Salvation lies in the DNC rules.


I’m not sure what I think of her theory, but it’s an interesting read.

Shudder. But to the Democrats, it might be a way to get the disillusioned black voters to vote for a Democrat, even if it would be against their own best interests.

Even if BiteMe's memory was fine, the special counsel couldn't have convinced a DC jury.

Yeah, Menendez was SUCH a great replacement for Torricelli...and expediency is SUCH a great rationale for ignoring the LAW. But....Dems have fully vested themselves and ALL of our futures and fortunes into the concept of doing the OPPOSITE of the LAW...for expediency sake. And claiming it is the "Right thing to do"

Similar to a crude old saying about call girls, they have from now until September to meet Michelle's price. She has aspirations of going to hollywood but could she resist the prospect of being called Madame President? She would eat it up and outdo that old Clinton woman at the same time by being another First. Poo-pooing Michelle's interest in the presidency is just more democrat treachery and word games, this is exactly what they are thinking and enough American people are stupid enough to vote on nothing but skin color. They have already proven it once.

Biden stumbles toward the exit 5 replies

President Joe Biden’s cascading confusion means Democrats have a problem similar to the one America faces as it slides ever deeper into debt. The crisis clearly requires action. You can pretend it isn’t real in the short term, but it won’t get better and won’t go away. It will only get worse. And the longer you delay, the harder and more painful fixing it will be. Just as continued overspending means more interest payments on mounting debt, so obdurate allegiance to Biden means his blue surrogates spend more time denying what’s increasingly obvious — that the guy is going gaga. In politics, it’s understood that if you’re explaining, you’re losing.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he'd pick Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, or former Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman as potential running mates in a hypothetical third-party presidential run. "Hypothetically, if I was picking my running mate… really, who I would ask right now is Mitt Romney," Manchin said Thursday at the City Club of Cleveland breakfast forum. "Maybe Rob Portman would be right there, too," Manchin added. "Rob is a dear friend of mine. What a good man, what a good man."

Lately, I have written and focused on the history of Watergate because I find it helpful in understanding American politics and power today. After living through Watergate, President Donald Trump has the benefit of having watched how the establishment’s legal-political-money-media lynch mob operates — a perspective that has allowed him to navigate through its attacks in ways Nixon simply couldn’t. But Watergate is only one data point in mapping out how the establishment tries to destroy its enemies. One of the most amazing things about Watergate is that Nixon’s predecessors, Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, had done far more illegal things. The allegations Nixon was charged with

The U.S. Intelligence Community asked fellow members of the “‘Five Eyes’ intelligence alliance to surveil Trump’s associates and share the intelligence they acquired with US agencies,” sources told a small team of independent reporters who broke the story yesterday. In “CIA Had Foreign Allies Spy on Trump Team, Triggering Russia Collusion Hoax, Sources Say,” journalists Michael Shellenberger, Matt Taibbi, and Alex Gutentag reported that top-line takeaway, along with several other key details. According to the authors, “multiple credible sources,” said that “the United States Intelligence Community (IC), including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), illegally mobilized foreign intelligence agencies to target Trump advisors long before the summer of 2016.”

When Ronald Reagan challenged a sitting president, he famously asked his fellow countrymen: are you better off now than you were four years ago? This perfectly illustrates what is called the referendum hypothesis, meaning that elections with an incumbent are foremost a referendum on the incumbent. Decades later, when comedian Volodymyr Zelensky challenged incumbent president Petro Poroshenko in Ukraine, he told the latter in the same spirit during the debates: I’m not your opponent, I’m your verdict. Ukrainian voters rendered the verdict, elevating the outsider and first-time candidate Zelensky to the presidency with a whopping 73%.

Immigration experts are raising the alarm about how the increasing flow of migrants illegally crossing into the U.S. may significantly impact states' representation in the House of Representatives and Electoral College. Shortly after taking office in January 2021, President Biden signed an executive order requiring that the U.S. Census Bureau factor in all residents, including noncitizens, as part of its decennial calculation of the U.S. population. As a result, the apportionment of House seats and, therefore, electoral votes for presidential elections, could be swayed as migrants continue to pour over the southern border. "Illegal immigration has all kinds of effects and among them is that it distorts the mechanics of democratic

Remember when Democrats advocated for working-class Americans? My maternal relatives were all Irish Catholic Democrats in decades past. They were deeply conservative in their personal lives and social views, and concurrently deeply committed to the party of John F. Kennedy and Tip O’Neill. Those days now seem like an era of antiquity compared to the radical, even Marxist, Democratic Party of the 2020s. The Biden-Harris Democrats push secular humanist ideology while acting fully in concert with the economic ruling class of America, all at the cavalier expense of middle- and lower-income citizens. This observation is not merely my opinion, but rather the widespread view of working-class Americans

Does America’s 2024 election come down to a choice between two different shades of your crazy uncle, one semi-senile, the other vulgar and erratic? A decade ago, when Donald Trump launched his presidential bid, there was a real clash of visions for the US at stake. “Make America great again” (Maga) heralded the end of globalisation and the return of tariffs, hard borders and nationalism: the stuff of the Dark Ages, as far as establishments on both sides of the Atlantic were concerned. Today, the Trumpian critique of neo-liberal globalisation is echoed by Financial Times columnists – and enacted into policy by the Democrats.

You would think that after three years of Joe Biden’s misbegotten presidency, Americans would have suffered enough and fate would cut us a break. But Kamala Harris has other ideas. As a reminder that things can always get worse, the veep from hell said the four most terrifying words in the English language: “I’m ready to serve.” Oh, God, please, not that! If she gets control of the Oval Office, the last three tumultuous years will be fondly recalled as the good old days. References to a Harris tenure would be spat out as a curse.

I am happy that the American people will finally hear the facts and evidence that I have been trying to outline for over four years, all backed up and supported by emails, texts, documents, records, pictures, and other evidence. The facts we are going to discuss today are important for America's naConal security, and I can only hope that everyone in this room and all representatives and officers of the U.S. Government take them seriously.

Independent voters from around the country had scathing remarks to describe President Biden in a focus group published Tuesday, with most admitting they are leaning toward former President Trump in 2024 despite their own derisive assessments of him. The New York Times spoke with 13 undecided, independent voters at length about the two leading candidates and the issues most important to them heading into the election. The voters, ranging from 22-64 years old, were most concerned about the economy, citing the rising costs of groceries and other bills. Of 13 voters, 12 said they would base their vote on this issue, and 11

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley blamed former president Donald Trump for Republican Mazi Melesa Pilip’s loss to Democrat Tom Suozzi in the special election for George Santos’s former Long Island House seat. Echoing the case they’ve made for their own candidate in the GOP presidential primary, Haley’s campaign argued in a Tuesday night statement that Trump’s brand is toxic among moderates in purple areas like New York’s third district and will continue to weigh down Republicans. “Let’s just say the quiet part out loud. Donald Trump continues to be a huge weight against Republican candidates.

DDemocrat Tom Suozzi captured a victory in the special election for New York's Third congressional district to replace serial fabulist and former Rep. George Santos. The Associated Press projected that Suozzi triumphed over Republican Mazi Pilip with 52 percent of the total vote counted. 'This race was fought amidst a closely divided electorate, much like our whole country. This race was centered on immigration and the economy, much like the issues all across our country,' Suozzi said speaking to a crowd of supporters Tuesday night on Long Island. 'We won this race because we addressed the issues and we found a way to bind our divisions.'

Hollywood Biden cheerleader Rob Reiner is once again pushing the left’s “Christian nationalism” boogeyman, saying conservative Christians who are politically active are “antithetical to the teachings of Jesus.” Rob Reiner — who remains one of President Joe Biden’s biggest Hollywood fundraisers — spoke to Newsweek to promote the upcoming documentary God & Country, which Reiner produced. “This movement that they have here seems completely antithetical to the teachings of Jesus,” Reiner said. “Jesus was about peace and love and helping thy neighbor and those less fortunate than ourselves. And I thought that was something that we should all aspire to. So to me this movement is going totally opposite the teachings of Jesus.”

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said this week that he speaks to Joe Biden all the time and that his mind is just fine, going on to suggest that questions about Biden’s mental health are just right wing propaganda. This is fantasy talk from Schumer. Recent polling indicates that the vast majority of the American people have questions about Biden’s mental state and the Hur report only confirmed this. The fact that Schumer even felt he had to address this issue is very telling. The Hill reports: Schumer: Biden’s mental acuity is ‘great’

A California lawmaker has proposed an ambitious plan to raise the minimum wage to $50 per hour. Democratic Representative Barbara Lee argued that, due to the affordability crisis in the San Francisco Bay Area, a family of four needs at least $127,000 to survive. Lee's proposal means that minimum wage workers would earn more than $100,000 per year. She made these comments while debating with Reps Adam Schiff (D-CA), Katie Porter (D-CA) and Republican Steve Garvey. Schiff and Porter have both called for the minimum wage to be increased to at least $20 an hour. However, Garvey has resisted raising

Given the wholesale disaster that has been the Biden presidency, one has to wonder how it all happened. We have all seen the Democrat party become radicalized, almost purely Marxist, since the Obama administration. Obama promised to transform the country and he surely did. He effectively drove race relations backward by seventy years. It is common knowledge that Obama despised his VP Biden. Why he was chosen to be his VP in the first place is anybody’s guess. Biden was a known jerk, a racist (his mentor was KKK member/aficionado Robert Byrd), rather dumb, a plagiarist, and a pathological liar.

George Soros, the left’s favorite billionaire, is buying up American radio stations by the hundreds, ahead of the 2024 election. This is obviously part of a strategy, because that’s what Soros does. He hatches backdoor plans to exert influence over American politics. A few years back, he pumped a ton of cash into district attorney races across the country and we all know how that worked out. This is his new plan. Could there be more to this than gaining media influence? The Washington Times reports:
