Sure sounds like an invasion -

A Texas farmer who owns a 150-acre ranch along the U.S.-Mexico border recently shared footage of migrants running onto his property and barricading themselves inside the home where his grandparents live.

Sounds like somewhere you know? -

In Europe, political analysts are pointing to Sweden and Italy as possible harbingers of a political mood shift across the continent driven by a growing wariness of immigrants as well as anger over rising crime rates.

“How does a man who rapes an innocent teenage girl walk the streets to sexually attack [five] more innocent [people], including a homeless woman?” one Manhattan cop fumed.

But then Bastiat wasn't an impetus for our Revolution, that was John Locke:

Under reason #190,732,584 to not trust the media here is a the latest variation on the "Republicans Pounce" narrative!


“A driver charged with fatally striking a teenager in North Dakota allegedly told investigators he purposely hit the teen with his SUV after they had a political argument, according to court documents.”

Can you find the missing piece of data? I’ll let you read it again if you must, but pay attention to the words “political argument.” And of course, we know that Brandt told police he ran Cayler down because he was a “Republican extremist.”

But the Associated Press, which, it should be noted, feeds newsrooms across the nation, decided to omit the fact that Cayler was murdered by Brandt for allegedly being a Republican.

You can read the full story here.


Other AP headlines as of Thursday night included:

Trump’s legal woes mount without the protection of the presidency
Alex Jones testifies in trial over his Sandy Hook lies
Bank officials urge firing of Trump official over ethics probe
Ex-Illinois cop charged in 2020 fatal shooting of Black man
Ohio GOP House candidate has misrepresented military service
“Art of the steal”: Trump accused of vast fraud in NY suit


Notice anything? While all of those stories are true, the AP has no problem spinning headlines and stories to fan the flames of outrage and cast conservatives in the worst possible light. Can you say “partisan”? But when one of the Left’s own commits an atrocity that cannot be swept aside, the story is whitewashed to remove any progressive culpability. Running an 18-year-old down and killing him for being a conservative becomes a “political argument.”

Hey we didnt really mean it when we said we were sanctuary cities, we just wanted to virtue signal and poke Trump in the eye -

New York Mayor Eric Adams said last week that 8,500 of the 11,000 migrants who have come to the city are still living within the shelter system. The influx has led the mayor’s office to reassess “the city’s practices with respect to the right to shelter,” a law that guarantees that the city provides shelter to anyone who asks for it.

Well, looks like Roberta won’t be complaining about fifty bucks a day to heat his home in the future.

‘California Will Crack Down On Gas-Powered Home Appliances To Meet Climate Targets’

“California’s proposed standard is part of a larger effort to cut household emissions by phasing out gas-powered appliances such as heaters and stoves as space and water heating account for almost 90% of all building-related natural gas demand, according to CARB estimates. The proposed ban would also make California the first state to ban gas-fueled furnaces and water heaters in homes.”

Wow.

"The move comes after Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom of California signed 40 climate bills on Sept. 16 to achieve statewide “carbon neutrality” by no later than 2045 by cracking down on oil drilling and accelerating carbon capture projects. California will also invest $54 billion to cut carbon emissions and develop “clean energy technologies,” according to the California Climate Commitment.

California will also ban the sale of all gas-powered cars after 2035 and is mulling a ban on medium and heavy trucks to fight a legacy of racist practices, according to a CARB report."

It's about time something was done about racist medium and heavy trucks. Thank you, CARB.

It Ends as it Began: As a Political Ploy

“Consider, however, that many times as many people die from COVID daily in the U.S. (300-400) than when the U.S. first announced the outrageous lockdowns of March 16, 2020. In those days, deaths were approaching 50 per day, mostly in New York. It will very likely get worse over the winter months.”

Why not send a couple of cops instead of a 25-30 person SWAT Team. The latest whistle blower (2nd) was suspended for not joining his SWAT team in on a raid on a house…for a misdemeanor!

Election 2022. The tight races. K-12 Education is a top priority among Black males and Hispanic females. Take Stacy Abrams in the Georgia Gov’s race. In 2018, Kemp got 3% of the black vote. Currently she is losing 30% of the Black male vote (less likely to vote than Black females) and even Black female votes for a 13 point loss of that demographic, 10% down from 2018. Why? Yes, the economy and inflation comes in 1-2. Well, the Georgia Blacks consider good education for their kids is the hope for their future and desire for their children to have a better life than they have.
Nevada is currently the closest race with razor thin differences in polling. Yet, the momentum is swinging towards the Senate challenger, a R. Why? Hispanic women want better schools for their kids. Unlike many, they are more optimistic about their kids’ future and look to which party can deliver better schools.

You can parlay that across many Gov and Senate races (and even State House offices) and the Dems have not offered better public education solutions, improvements, nor school choice. The schools clamor for money with no meritocracy, accountability with fewer students.

Declining public school enrollments are not just a Blue State problem. Accounting for birth rates, immigration and emigration, and all the usual factors in the pipeline….accounting for all that the Red State and Blue States are seeing declining enrollments. Where did the students go? 7%, give or take, have been yanked by parents and are now being homeschooled or enrolled in private schools. Yes, even in Red States. That tells me that public education is a top priority for those with children across the board. It was the winning formula in Virginia’s Gov race.

Parental disgust and alarm with public education is a factor in 2022. Generally, R voters are more likely to have children than Dems, whether one likes it or not. When Stacy Abrams is losing some the most likely Dem supporters (educated black females), then that tells you something. Actions speak louder than words. Just my observation.

White House Midterm Plan: Deny Reality

https://www.dailywire.com/news/white-house-midterm-plan-deny-reality
————————-
Let’s not talk of Biden’s policies or Biden’s stances. Let’s talk about Republicans, lol.

‘Doocy EXPLODES After KJP Ducks His Abortion Question: ‘You Did NOT Answer My Question!’

“Continuing to stammer her way along, Doocy fact-checked her by noting Graham’s proposal is only for 15 weeks and not an outright ban.

Jean-Pierre continued to lie, claiming “it's a national ban, which will take us backwards and will put at risk the health of women” and would be the first step by “extreme Republican officials” in ending “privacy” and “contraception” and attacking “marriage” (as in gay and interracial marriages).

“I'm not going to get into specifics here. I’m just going to lay out what — what they have said that they’re going to do,” she hilariously added.

Doocy seized on that nonsense: “Why not get into specifics? The Republicans are saying we don't want abortion after 15 weeks. Why can't you say how many weeks the President thinks the limit is?”

Jean-Pierre again diverted by invoking House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and the House GOP’s Commitment to America, but Doocy wasn’t having it, saying he’s “not asking about Kevin McCarthy” and instead about “Joe Biden and his position on abortion.”

After being asked one last time “how many weeks,” Jean-Pierre filibustered with a meandering answer about Republicans “trying to take away the rights and freedoms of Americans.” Doocy tried to push back, but Jean-Pierre moved on to Bloomberg Government’s Courtney Rozen.

Doocy almost always complies when Jean-Pierre (or Jen Psaki) would move on, but not on this day as he exclaimed, “[y]ou did not answer my question”.
