Multiple 'Raging' Crises: Failures of 'Progressive' Governance on Full Display This Week
Post Date: 2022-07-14 21:40:47 by tankumo
The 2022 midterm elections are less than four months away, and the urgent need for change could not be more clear. We addressed yesterday's dreadful INFLATION report earlier -- with everyday costs and energy prices pounding away at American families' bottom lines, and analysts issuing increasingly dire recession projections. This, for instance, isn't a welcome prediction from a man who got it right on inflation, while the Biden administration got it so very wrong:.................
Affluent white female Democrats push away Hispanic and working-class voters
Post Date: 2022-07-13 21:38:41 by tankumo
This aint your grandfathers Democratic Party anymore. In fact, your grandfather is probably a Republican now. A political realignment is on the horizon while affluent white Democrats ignore kitchen table issues. The New York Times continues to release data from the most recent Siena College poll. Data published on Wednesday showcase the shifting demographics of the two-party dichotomy. For the first time in a Times/Siena national survey, Democrats had a larger share of support among white college graduates than among nonwhite voters, writes Nate Cohen. As recently as the 2016 congressional elections, Democrats won more than 70 percent of nonwhite voters while ...
My Democratic abuelos raised me. Here's why I'm now a Republican running for Congress.
Post Date: 2022-07-12 21:29:27 by tankumo
My abuelos, who were Democrats, raised me to live the American dream in my hometown of Roswell, New Mexico. My grandfather spent his days digging ditches to provide for my schooling, put food on the table and keep me clothed. From there, I worked hard and excelled in my studies so that I was able to go to college, graduating from New Mexico Tech with a degree in environmental engineering. Now, I'm running for Congress as a Republican. I'm not alone among my fellow Latinos in moving from a Democratic past to a Republican present..................
Sorry, Democrats: We're Stuck With Joe and Kamala | Opinion
Post Date: 2022-07-11 21:26:32 by tankumo
It was the meme of the week: Joe's gotta go. It felt like every liberal news outlet took part in a week of scathing critique of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, with many even from the President's own party suggesting he commit to not running in 2024. It's not just wishful thinking. If the Democrats successfully push President Biden to retire, they will be doing something that Republicans refused to do after two impeachments, a horrendous pandemic response, and a detailed attempt to undermine American democracy: They will be tacitly admitting they picked the wrong person to run the country. It's hard to see how they recover from that politically for ...
The Rise of Hispanic Religious Republicans
Post Date: 2022-07-10 15:13:43 by tankumo
The New York Times is famous for its anthropological studies of conservatives what wags have called gorillas in the mist coverage. The newspapers latest anthropological installment is The Rise of the Far-Right Latina. That smearing label tells us less about the three Hispanic Texas Republicans profiled in the piece than it does the papers hysterical liberal bias and the lefts general obtuseness. Even prosaic conservatism, grounded in the countrys history and traditions, qualifies as far-right to woke reporters like Jennifer Medina, who never bothers to examine in the article the far-left character of the ...
The numbers are in: red states are winning
Post Date: 2022-07-09 13:09:14 by tankumo
Americans are voting with their feet and the results are in: red states are winning. An incredible 46 million people moved to a new ZIP code over the year to February 2022, the highest annual total since Equifax, a credit agency, began tracking moves in 2010. Republican-leaning red states gained the most residents led by Florida, Texas, and North Carolina while the blue states of California, New York, and Illinois were the biggest migratory losers. The most popular pandemic-era moves were from New York to Florida and California to Texas so much so that U-Haul ran out of moving trucks leaving California last year. Given the chance to flee high-cost cities, Millennials ...
The Epidemic Of Fatherless Boys Is Unraveling Our Society
Post Date: 2022-07-08 21:48:48 by tankumo
Roland Warren, the former head of the National Fatherhood Initiative, when delivering the eulogy for his late father, said about the distant relationship he had with him as a child, I was a little boy with a hole in my soul in the shape of my dad with unhealed wounds from years of feeling neglected and less than worthy. A recent research brief by Brad Wilcox and his colleagues at the Institute for Family Studies (IFS) on how the lack of an involved father impacts boys verifies the effects of that dad-shaped hole on boys............
Justice Clarence Thomas is ‘our greatest living American,’ despite constant attacks from the left, author says
Post Date: 2022-07-07 20:54:14 by tankumo
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been vilified by the left for decades, but a close friend who believes hes "our greatest living American" helped tell the justices story through his own words in a remarkable new book taken from 25 hours of candid discussion with the longest-serving justice. Mark Paoletta, an attorney who served as Assistant Counsel to President George H.W. Bush and played a key role in the confirmation of Thomas, became a close friend of the justice over time. Over the past three decades, theyve vacationed together with their families and made frequent road trips to visit a New Jersey nursing home where the Irish nuns who taught Thomas ...
Chinese immigrant, a witness to Mao's political purge, warning about indoctrination in public schools
Post Date: 2022-07-06 20:37:21 by tankumo
A Chinese immigrant who witnessed Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution warned against the indoctrination of children in K-12 schools with neo- Marxist ideologies such as critical race theory and The New York Times' 1619 Project. In an interview with Fox News Digital, Lily Tang Williams, who is currently running as a Republican candidate for Congress in New Hampshire's second district, discussed the lessons she learned as a witness to communist brutality and shared a warning to Americans on the importance of fighting for liberty. "[Mao believed that] young people's mind is a blank piece of paper. You can draw the most beautiful pictures or whatever he wants to draw or ...
U.S. sues Arizona over proof of citizenship voting law
Post Date: 2022-07-05 21:08:57 by tankumo
WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division announced Tuesday that it has sued Arizona over a law signed by the states Republican governor in March that requires people registering to vote prove their citizenship to participate in a presidential election or to vote by mail in any federal election. Republican proponents of the law, HB 2492, claim that requiring voters to provide a documentary proof of citizenship, like a birth certificate or passport, helps prevent voter fraud. But voting rights advocates say that non-citizen voting is extremely rare, and the law will disenfranchise voters who will have to jump through additional hurdles to be eligible to ...
Yes, Biden Is Hiding His Plan To Rig The 2022 Midterm Elections
Post Date: 2022-07-05 21:07:55 by tankumo
President Biden really does not want the public to know about his federal takeover of election administration. Dozens of members of Congress have repeatedly asked for details, to no avail. Good government groups, members of the media, and private citizens have filed requests under the Freedom of Information Act. Not a single one has been responded to. All signs indicate a concerted effort to keep the public in the dark until at least after the November midterm elections. The lack of transparency and responsiveness is so bad that the Department of Justice and some of its agencies have been repeatedly sued for the information.........

Post Date: 2022-07-05 01:03:16 by A K A Stone
Washington, D.C. Newsroom, Jul 1, 2022 / 16:38 pm A building on the grounds of a Catholic school in northern Ohio sustained an estimated $1 million in damage from a fire Thursday. An arson investigation is underway, authorities said. The fire, which started outside the building, caused heavy smoke and structural damage to the cafeteria and gymnasium of St. Anthony of Padua School in Lorain, a community on the coast of Lake Erie, Jeff Fenn, assistant chief at the Lorain Fire Department, told CNA Friday. Fenn estimated the damage at $1 million. He said the nearby parish church was not damaged. Heat from the fire caused windows to pop which allowed smoke to fill the whole ...
CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’
Post Date: 2022-07-04 01:11:50 by tankumo
On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the states Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status reports the Associated Press. The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year adds the AP. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border ...
100-Year-Old Veteran Breaks Down Over What America Has Become
Post Date: 2022-07-02 20:50:48 by A K A Stone
The 100-year-old veteran in the clip below breaks down over the disaster that is now America. America is on the brink. Its heartbreaking to hear this veteran speak because hes right and shouldnt have to see this. I am so upset that the things that we did, and the things we fought for, and the boys that died for it. Its all gone down the drain. Our countrys going to Hell in a handbasket. We havent got the country we had when I was raised, not at all. Nobody will have the fun I had. Nobodyll have the opportunity I had. This is not the same. That is not what they died for

Supreme Court strikes a blow on bureaucrats
Post Date: 2022-07-02 13:15:53 by tankumo
The Supreme Courts decision Thursday curbing the powers of unelected federal bureaucrats to regulate all of us is the second-most-important case it decided this term, after the reversal of Roe v. Wade. The Constitution set up a system of separated powers that envisioned Congress would pass the laws, the president would administer them and the courts would interpret them. Since the New Deal, Congress has shirked its accountability by increasingly giving unelected agencies the power to make decisions of vast economic and political significance. In West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency, a 6-to-3 majority ruled that from now on Congress must explicitly grant such power. The ...
Politico issues correction after falsely claiming Clarence Thomas promoted COVID vaccine-aborted fetus theory
Post Date: 2022-07-01 22:03:41 by tankumo
Politico issued a correction after critics called out media outlets for erroneously attributing a theory about the COVID vaccine to Justice Clarence Thomas. On Thursday, the Supreme Court announced that it would not hear a case challenging New York's vaccine mandate. In 2021, a group of anonymous healthcare workers filed a lawsuit against the state claiming that taking the vaccine would violate their religious beliefs. Thomas, along with Justices Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito, released a dissenting opinion criticizing the decision for ignoring religious exemptions............
The Dobbs Leaker Accomplished Nothing But Accenting The Left’s Contempt For Democracy
Post Date: 2022-06-30 21:49:55 by tankumo
Alot of people are seething about the Supreme Courts decision to allow state legislatures to protect unborn lives, but someone who is almost certainly sulking in a corner (or should be) is the useless insurrectionist who leaked an early draft of the Dobbs v. Jackson decision. Its been nearly two months since someone attempted to compromise the integrity of the judicial process by leaking Justice Samuel Alitos draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. The damaging consequences of that attack on the court cant be overstated, and its a scandal of its own that we still dont know who the leaker was, since Chief Justice Roberts passed the investigation to the ...
After Roe, Never Trumpers Should Just Admit They Were Wrong
Post Date: 2022-06-29 21:37:15 by tankumo
The lefts reaction to the Supreme Courts historic decision last week overturning Roe v. Wade has been uniformly appalling but not at all surprising: violence, calls for more violence, calls to pack the court, ignore its decisions, dissolve it. In other words, about what youd expect from people who want to destroy every institution they dont control. On the right, the reaction has been rather more mixed, mainly because of the cowardice and intellectual dishonesty of the Never Trump faction, whose leading lights cant bring themselves to give credit to former President Donald Trump for accomplishing what the Republican establishment could not.............
Calling Justice Thomas ‘Uncle Clarence’ exposes the rotten sham that is the progressive movement
Post Date: 2022-06-28 21:23:28 by tankumo
A festering rot of racial animosity exists in our society that we willfully ignore socially and politically. It is a rot that eats away at the flesh of our civil society and spoils the greatness of our multicultural nation. Progressives continually tell us we have blinders on when it comes to racism in American society. Theyve shoved their ideological solution of anti-racism to force us to deconstruct what they believe is an inherently deep-seated racist nation. I, as a black American, am supposed to rejoice in the presence of our self-appointed saviors, but I peeked behind the veil and saw who they really are.......
The Democrats’ lies on abortion since SCOTUS’ overruling of Roe v. Wade
Post Date: 2022-06-27 21:35:04 by tankumo
Abortion enthusiasts have been telling so many lies since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last week, its hard to take them seriously. Now President Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are salivating at the prospect that abortion is on the ballot, as opposed to inflation, crime, border security and all the issues that have the Democrats under water and without a viable policy. But abortion may not be the electoral game-changer they hope for, and largely thats because the lies they tell themselves and their supporters have caused them to lose touch with the reality of America.............
President Trump, A Formidable Candidate In 2024 Republican Primaries: Golden/TIPP Poll
Post Date: 2022-06-25 21:19:42 by tankumo
Aside from the austere posturing and holier-than-thou reasons, what is motivating the January 6 hearings? Democrats' desperation to render Trump powerless. Democrats attempted impeachment based on January 6, which failed. The J6 hearings are now a second chance. They're hoping Merrick Garland will come to their aid if that doesn't work. You would wonder, why is that? Our latest Golden/TIPP Poll has the answer............
The Red Wave Is Not Just Inevitable, It’s Also Conservative
Post Date: 2022-06-24 21:16:07 by tankumo
Apolitical tsunami is coming for Democrats. The resounding victory of Republican newcomer Mayra Flores in the special election for Texas 34th congressional district signals what most political pundits and election prognosticators already know: a red tidal wave will soon sweep away a Democrat Party in thrall to far-left radicals and progressive extremists. However, as impressive as Flores seven-point victory was in the nations second-most heavily Hispanic congressional district a district which Joe Biden carried by four points the real impact will be felt in state legislatures.............
How liberal policies have killed black communities: Clarence Thomas
Post Date: 2022-06-23 21:23:56 by tankumo
In this excerpt from the just-published Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words by Michael Pack and Mark Paoletta, the Supreme Court justice reflects on changes in his hometown, Savannah, Ga. The book is based on more than 30 hours of interviews Pack conducted with Thomas and his wife, Ginni, for the film of the same name; 95% of the books material is new, including this excerpt. Michael Pack: You have talked a little today about how life in the black community has not been improved by many well-intentioned social programs. Do you think, in some sense, it is worse than when you grew up?..........................
A Supreme win for school choice
Post Date: 2022-06-22 21:20:03 by tankumo
In a win for parents and school-choice advocates, the US Supreme Court overturned a Maine law Tuesday that denied religious schools access to state tuition assistance available to students attending secular private institutions. Maine created the program to give options to kids living in areas without public schools but excluded faith-based institutions from those options. The high court ruled 6-3 that the prohibition penalizes the free exercise of religion in Maine by excluding otherwise eligible schools on the basis of their religious exercise. In other words, discriminating against all religious education is discriminating against religion, ...
The More Americans Decide The System Is Rigged, The More They Will Silently Rebel
Post Date: 2022-06-21 21:31:15 by tankumo
Conservatives may be coming around to the view of the Dead Kennedys, the left-wing punk rockers who sang that the law dont mean st if youve got the right friends, thats how this countrys run. Their caustic rewrite of I Fought the Law was inspired by the assassin Dan White getting off easy, but the broad alienation from American institutions is surprisingly resonant with right-wing Americans today for good reason. Riots and political violence are treated very differently depending on who commits them. For instance, the Biden administration is allowing the illegal intimidation of Supreme Court justices, including threats against ...
