    Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert is digging her heels in on Wednesday amid an onslaught of bipartisan criticism for heckling President Joe Biden's State of the Union address while he mentioned his dead son Beau.   'The left is pissed because I called out Biden's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 of America’s finest in a flag-draped coffin,' Boebert wrote on Twitter. 'They are mad because a speech was “interrupted”. Ask the the families who lost their loved ones how interrupted their lives are now.' She previously defended herself late Tuesday evening, writing on the platform that 'When Biden said flag draped coffins I couldn't stay silent.'  Boebert earned 'boos' from the House chamber on Tuesday night when called out Biden's Afghanistan withdrawal while he was talking about cancer-causing burn pits affecting military service members. He believes such pits led to his late son's early death at age 46.  The roughly hour-long address was notably punctuated by both bipartisan applause, as well as loud jeering from Boebert and her fellow GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.  White House Press...
    Democrat strategist James Carville denigrated Americans who refuse coronavirus vaccines as “pieces of shit” that he wants to punch in the face during the latest episode of his podcast. On the February 3 episode of Politics War Room with James Carville and Al Hunt, Carville and his co-host discussed the idea of banning unvaccinated people from interstate flights or bus routes. Both men agreed the policy would likely be shut down by court challenges, but Carville used the opportunity to riff on how much he disrespects the unvaccinated. Transcript below: HUNT: Reid in Jacksonville, North Carolina, wants to know: Why doesn’t Biden push a bill that bars unvaccinated individuals from flights and buses and, I would add, trains. Shouldn’t stronger action be taken? Reid, I wouldn’t be against that at all. I’d be for it actually, as long as you put — or testing, before you get on a plane, a bus, or an interstate train, you ought to be vaccinated or tested. I don’t think the Supreme Court would allow him to do that. CARVILLE: I don’t either. HUNT: So...
    The overwhelming majority of Senate Democrats will soon move to eliminate the filibuster -- which has protected the rights of the chamber’s minority for more than a century – because they feel the need to pass ‘voting rights legislation’ is just too intense to be blocked by the 60-vote threshold. By merging several pieces of legislation into one mega-bill and calling it the ‘Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act,’ Democrats are trying to scare people into believing that if the bill doesn’t pass, they will lose their right to vote.  Of course, this whole exercise is doomed to fail, because Democratic leadership can’t get all 50 of their own senators to support it. But it won’t be for lacking of trying. On Tuesday night, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer proposed another obscure last-ditch procedural effort to skirt the filibuster rules.  This new piece of political theatre is called a ‘talking filibuster.’ It requires Republicans to physical stand on the Senate floor and speak – likely for hours. But the details really aren’t important, because this too is guaranteed to fail....
    Fox News host Charles Payne accused Democrats of “hypocrisy” on Tuesday after President Joe Biden called for eliminating the filibuster in Atlanta during a speech on election reform legislation. Biden argued ending the filibuster would prevent Republicans from blocking bills he said will expand voting rights. His critics of course claim the White House is making a grab to federalize the country’s elections. Biden said, “Let the majority prevail. And if that bare minimum is blocked, we have no option but to change the Senate rules — including getting rid of the filibuster for this.” Payne reacted to that portion of the speech by ripping into the president. “President Biden finishing an impassionate speech, really to get not just the voting rights act passed, but really to get rid of the filibuster,” Payne said. “And that really is the breaking news. It’s official. The President of the United States, at least in this particular instance, thinks we should get rid of the filibuster.” Bob Cusack, the editor-in-chief of The Hill, opined while speaking to Payne that Democrats are in no...
    Democrat legislation marketed as a “voting rights” bill has no basis on the events of January 6, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) remarked on Monday’s edition of the Breitbart Daily News podcast with host Alex Marlow. “I don’t see a link between January 6 and the so-called ‘voting rights’ bill,” she said. “It’s just not there, they’re using any excuse they can to try and ram through a really, really horrible agenda.” Democrats are “bringing forward these bills under the guise of voting rights,” Ernst held. “This is not about voting rights. This is a transparent play to the rest of us that they are trying to gather permanent political power.” She added, “What we want to do is make it easier to vote, but harder to cheat, and these Washington Democrats basically want to take over our elections. … The Democrats’ proposed bill would eliminate popular voter-ID requirements at the polls.” “It would also put those Washington, DC, bureaucrats in charge of America’s local and state-run elections systems, and we know how efficient and fair our federal government is.”...
    Sen. Joe Manchin is taking heat from all sides as he resists eliminating the last stalwart against the Democratic agenda, the filibuster, including some of the biggest names in America.  Manchin has told colleagues his phone has been lighting up with calls in recent days, including from former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, and even TV host Oprah Winfrey, according to Politico.  Moderate Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., Tim Kaine, D-Va., and Angus King, I-Maine, were once leery of doing away with the 60-vote hurdle for fears of what Republicans would do if they took back the majority, but now are leading the campaign to sway the West Virginia Democrat.  Tester, Kaine and King have reportedly met with Manchin at least three dozen times to discuss filibuster reform, sometimes joined by other Democrats, according to participants.  Kaine likened the effort to sway Manchin to being trapped on Interstate 95 on his drive through Virginia to Washington, D.C. for 27 hours. 'Slow progress toward a goal, like my commute.' Manchin has told colleagues his phone has been lighting up with calls about...
    Democrat Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer promised his party that they are not 'giving up on BBB' after a blistering defeat of the president's landmark legislation came when Sen. Joe Manchin announced his opposition.  Schumer signaled he would try to get through a revised version of the bill.   'I know we are all frustrated at this outcome. However, we are not giving up on BBB. Period. We won’t stop working on it until we pass a bill,' Schumer, D-N.Y., told Senate Democrats in a call Tuesday evening, according to Punchbowl News.  Manchin also reportedly spoke on the call and reiterated he was comfortable with Schumer's plan, but has not changed his position on the $1.8 trillion Build Back Better plan.  He again said he won't support any new or expanded government programs that add to the federal debt. The West Virginia Democrat reminded his colleagues that he'd been sounding the alarm on inflation for months - the consumer price index was up 6.8 percent in November over a year ago and the wholesale price was up 9.6 percent.  December's inflation...
    Rittenhouse was acquitted of multiple counts, including felony murder, last week after a jury agreed that he had in fact acted in self-defense when he fatally shot two men and wounded a third during the Black Lives Matter Riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer. What else? In a tweet posted Monday morning, the DuPage Democratic Party condemned Lemanski's tweets as "incredibly insensitive." We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Waukesha.We are aware of statements made by a former member of our organization and find them to be incredibly insensitive and not in alignment of who we are as an organization. Our organization does not support hate in any form — DuPage Democrats (@DuPage Democrats) 1637593764 Lemanski, too, shared a statement she made on the DuPage Democrats page on her own Twitter account, in which she mustered up some form of an apology. Lemanski's account has since been made private, but a screenshot of her post can be seen below. Image Source: Twitter screenshot In another post, Lemanski complained about people being outraged over what...
    A clip of a Hispanic Virginia voter telling Telemundo News that President Joe Biden played a factor in his vote for Republican Glenn Youngkin on his way to defeating Democrat Terry McAuliffe Tuesday night made the rounds on Twitter Thursday. "I believe that Biden turned me into a Republican," a voter told Telemundo. "Biden is destroying the economy, inflation is through the roof. Everything is terrible." Media Research Latino's Jorge Bonilla predicted the clip "will become the subject of nightmares" for progressives in future elections. MRC Latino is a Spanish-language conservative watchdog launched by the Media Research Center. VOTERS TELL CNN, MSNBC THAT EDUCATION WAS NO. 1 AND MCAULIFFE ‘HURT’ HIMSELF WITH PARENT COMMENT In another telling video shared by Bonilla, voter Astrid Gamaz told Telemundo she's "sick of people stigmatizing" her for being a minority woman who votes Republican. Bonilla said he was "shocked" the outlet even aired it. "I believe that Republicans now, especially we minorities, have stood up- because I'm sick of people stigmatizing me (for being) a Republican and me being expected not to speak up,"...
    U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Tuesday expressed her outrage over being fined $48,000 for not following House rules by refusing to wear a mask at least 20 times. On Wednesday the Georgia Republican lawmaker revealed for the first time she is not vaccinated, calling those mandating the vaccine "Nazis" and "fascists." "Democrat members don't wear masks in the members gym when they work out. None of us do & no one should. Why do I get fined for not wearing a mask when I'm sitting in a chair on the House floor the same as people eating unmasked at a restaurant?" tweeted Greene, apparently ignorant of how to not spread COVID-19, especially if you are unvaccinated. When asked about vaccine mandates, Greene unleashed a torrent of Third Reich rhetoric. "They are the fascists," Greene told Trump strategist, former campaign manager and former White House senior advisor Steve Bannon, as Daily Mail reports. "They have called us 'fascists' and have called us 'Nazis' for like five years now, and I'm fed up with it, because that's exactly who they are."...
    Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin. Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin is working hard to win over the state's right-wing voters while working even harder to keep moderate suburbanites and independents in the dark about it.   Youngkin's most recent act of duplicity came at the Virginia Tea Party's "Backlash to Socialism" summit, where Youngkin pre-recorded a video address to attendees of the event sponsored by the far-right John Birch Society. Birchers are the original conspiracists, once sidelined by conservative leaders in the '60s for promoting baseless wackadoodle ideas, who have made a comeback in the GOP in recent years. True to form, reports the Daily Beast, the event's headliner was a New Zealand conspiracy theorist named Trevor Loudon who believes Democrats and the left are "working with so-called Islamists to overthrow the United States,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Donate now to keep Virginia blue and send a crystal clear message about 2022. At the event, Loudon said the U.S. military wasn't to be trusted because "the leadership is not on our side" and cast Democrats as in league with...
    Mark Robinson (L) said, 'There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth. And yes, I called it filth, and if you don’t like that I called it filth, come see me and I’ll explain it to you.'robinsonfornc/Facebook With apologies for starting consecutive columns in North Carolina, let me tell you a story about the state’s first Black lieutenant governor, Mark Robinson. He’s a Republican religious fundamentalist with a long history of anti-LGBTQ social media posts who rose to fame after a pro-gun speech went viral. He’s spent his time in office targeting “liberal indoctrination” in schools: critical race theory, teachers using CNN, that sort of thing. He’ll almost certainly be the Republican Party’s candidate for governor in 2024. Earlier this month, video surfaced of Robinson speaking at a religious event in June. He said a lot of interesting stuff about how schools should force students to pray, how churches should exert more influence over politics, how “godless people” want to defund police, and how non-Christians have “no wisdom.”  But...
    I continue to think regime change is a useful way of understanding politics. That's the idea that American political history turns in cycles. For 40 or 50 years, one party and its ideas prevail over the other with a majority of voters. From the 1930s to the 1970s, it was the Democrats. From the 1980s to the 2010s, it was the Republicans. Each period is punctuated by crisis — world wars, economic shocks or, in our case, the covid pandemic. Regime change is useful because it helps put the chaos of lived experience into a coherent historical context. But that's not all. Once you're aware of the cycles of political history, you realize very little is set in stone. The political assumptions of the past may or may not be relevant to the new political assumptions of the present. Plus, the political assumptions of the present are not really new. Even as one set of assumptions dominates an era, another set is always already in some stage of development. It just needs an opportunity to emerge. Regime change is useful...
    Liberal media appear to be falling in line with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki's suggestion that the Republicans are the party trying to defund the police, despite several prominent progressive Democrats explicitly stating as such over the course of the past year. "Well, the president did mention that the American Rescue Plan, the state and local funding, something that was supported by the president, a lot of Democrats who supported and voted for the bill, could help ensure local cops were kept on the beat in communities across the country. As you know, [it] didn't receive a single Republican vote. That funding has been used to keep cops on the beat," Psaki said in response to a question from Fox News' Peter Doocy on Tuesday. Bloomberg Opinion published a similar argument, noting Democrats secured funding for local police departments over GOP objections in a piece entitled, "Who Really Wants to Defund the Police?" "It’s true that some activists, including a small number of Democratic politicians, support the abolition of police departments," Jonathan Bernstein wrote. "A much larger group of activists...
    In response to an MSNBC guest's argument that police are "butt hurt" over reform push, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine slammed Democrats' "demonization" of law enforcement on Monday's "Fox News Primetime," claiming the left and "their whole defund the police movement" are directly responsible for the surge in violent crime across the nation. MSNBC GUEST BLAMES ‘COWARDLY’ POLICE FOR RISING CRIME, CLAIMS THEY ARE ‘BUTTHURT’ MIRANDA DEVINE: It's just more of the same demonization and blaming the police for the problems that we see now that are directly the fault of the Democrats and their whole 'defund the police' movement. Even Joe Biden, who now pretends that he is for the police, was at the height of the anti-cop movement last year. He was talking about directing, redirecting funds away from the police, which is just defunding the police in another way. Kamala Harris was promoting funds to bail out rioters who had been attacking police. What's happening now with crime in our cities, is a direct result of the demonization and also these new bail reform laws and...
    Former President Donald Trump hit out at Democrats, including Vice President Kamala Harris for denying theories he promoted as president that the coronavirus leaked from a lab in China, and said the Communist country would have to pay even if it was accidental.  Speaking to Dr. Nicole Saphier on Fox Nation Wednesday, Trump said he was surprised at the recent traction the theories that the coronavirus leaked from the Chinese Wuhan Institute of Virology have gained, saying that now, 'it's the biggest subject there is in America today.' 'You know that I said it a long time ago right from the beginning, and when you look at Wuhan and that's where it all started and then you look at the Wuhan lab and that's what they were doing it seemed pretty obvious to me,' he said.  Former President Donald Trump said he was surprised at the traction the theory that the coronvairus emerged from a Chinese lab had gained recently in a Fox Nation interview on Wednesday "I called it a long time ago." In an interview with @NBSaphierMD,...
    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld criticized President Joe Biden’s administration for bringing back the “unmitigated disasters” of the 1970s. Gutfeld ran through a list of issues during Wednesday’s “The Five,” from inflation and shortages at gas stations to unemployment and unrest in the Middle East, arguing that if the administration were a time-travel movie it would be called “Joe and Kamala’s Awful Adventure.” (RELATED: ‘Oh, God Help Us’: Greg Gutfeld Loses Patience With Juan Williams During Testy Spat On Immigration) WATCH: “The 1970s called, they want their unmitigated disasters back,” Gutfeld began. “Yep, move over, Jimmy Carter, President Biden is looking like the one-term Democrat every passing day, gas lines getting longer, prices rising, everywhere you look chaos is expanding like one of Jen Psaki’s binders all under Biden’s leadership.” Gutfeld went on to argue that Democrats and media were “obsessed” with the drama surrounding the ouster of Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney because they needed a distraction from everything that was going wrong under President Biden’s leadership. “No wonder Democrats in the media are so obsessed with...
    Note: Joel B. Pollak’s new ebook, We Told You So!: The First 100 Days of Joe Biden’s Radical Presidency, is out today. President Joe Biden is not as radical as conservatives said he would be. He is much, much worse. The man who was sold to Americans as a “moderate” by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, and who told voters, “I beat the socialist,” has been the most radical president in U.S. history. Biden has proposed a staggering $6 trillion in spending, most of it unpaid for, and most of it on big government programs. He has also proposed massive tax hikes, in the midst of what he claims is a historic economic crisis. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has called Biden’s first 100 days in office a “bait and switch,” and he’s not wrong. True, Biden promised Democrats he would be the most “progressive” president since FDR, but he also boasted of working across the aisle with Republicans. He devoted his Inaugural Address to the theme of “unity,” to the exclusion of any description of his actual policies....
    Joe Scarborough does not believe that Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star game from Atlanta, Georgia to Denver, Colorado is a good idea. In fact, he called it “lunacy” and explained how this very story will only help the Republican party win future elections. MLB’s decision comes as a reaction to the recent passage of a controversial state law in Georgia that many Democrats claim is designed to suppress voter turnout, particularly for people of color who traditionally turn out for Democrats in large numbers. As is almost the case in these sorts of stories, there is more to the story, and many Republicans have called out what they see as a false claim of racist “Jim Crow” laws. “Are we really at a place now where we’re going to be deciding where baseball players play the all-star game, one of America’s really most cherished mid-summer institutions, based on voting rules?” Scarborough asked. “It really, again, it’s ridiculous. And for Democrats, it’s short-sighted.” Scarborough then shared with the Morning Joe audience past conversations with a set of individuals he called “data...
    "FOX News Primetime" host Brian Kilmeade castigated President Biden’s opposition to Georgia’s new election law and called out Democrats for describing it as "racist." KILMEADE: He [Biden] called it an atrocity through his mask. He said it was indecent. Yesterday he called the bill "Jim Eagle" because Jim Crow, I guess, wasn't big enough. Democrats hammered the bill and called it racist, saying it makes it harder for people of color to vote. Let’s look what it actually does. It expands early voting, adding Saturday and Sunday as options. It makes secure drop boxes part of state law in every single county, 159 in all. It prohibits anyone but poll workers from handing out water or food to people waiting in line. Imagine the horror. It creates a voter fraud line and strengthens ID requirements for absentee voters.  I don't think Joe Biden went far enough. This isn't Jim Crow. This isn't "Jim Eagle." Follow me here, it's "Jim Condor."  Democrats hate voter ID laws. They say it's racist to ask for identification before you vote. But remember, Californians needed to show ID before they signed Gavin Newsom's recall petition, is that racist? Stacey Abrams, who still has not conceded her loss to Governor Brian Kemp back in 2018, called the bill's passage a rush job coordinated by Republicans to avoid scrutiny. She...
