  1. Embarrassing, and un-American.

    But those parading GrandMas need to be punished.

    This is a gross abuse of justice.

    2 standards, one for those they support, and one for those who dare oppose them.

  5. Another success story from Biden and company…..


    “A White House website didn’t solve it. Airlift flights from Europe didn’t fix it. Nine months after the New York Times first reported the shortages and three months after Joe Biden acknowledged he finally learned of it, retail inventory of baby formula dropped to its lowest level in July, the Wall Street Journal reports this morning:

    Availability of powdered formula products in U.S. stores earlier this month dropped to the lowest level so far this year, with about 30% of products out of stock for the week ended July 3, according to the market-research firm IRI. While availability improved slightly last week, out-of-stock levels remain higher than in recent months, and shortages remain acute in states including Alaska, Utah and Wyoming, IRI data showed.

    At the same time, consumers are finding fewer choices of brands, sizes or formats of formula on grocery-store shelves as the variety of available products shrinks. U.S. supermarkets over the four weeks ended June 26 sold an average of 11 different formula products per store weekly, according to IRI, compared with a weekly average of 24 from 2018 to 2021.

    Keith Milligan, controller of Piggly Wiggly stores in Georgia and Alabama, said his stores are carrying five of the 30 formula products they typically sell, compared with about 10 in late spring. Store shelves aren’t empty, but have many gaps, Mr. Milligan said, and customers are purchasing what is available.

    “It has not improved at all,” Mr. Milligan said of Piggly Wiggly’s formula supply.

    What about Joe Biden’s touted airlifts of supply from Europe? That may have helped take the edge off, but that’s all. The amount transported covers less than a week of US consumption:”


    Sorry kids, govt incompetence is a real thing.


  6. A few folks here don’t like it, but Pres. Trump is by far the most popular candidate for 2024 (it’s not even close). Dems are now viewing everything through the lens of how they can keep Pres. Trump from even being on the ballot – they know that he would win big (again!) in a fair election. What’s scary is that they will do anything and everything in their power to keep the power…

    Pres. Trump could be the only presidential candidate in modern times who will win a third presidential election. We need to return to liberty/conservatism, or it is over.


    “Former President Donald Trump said he has made his decision about whether to run in 2024.

    In an interview with the New York Magazine published on July 14, the 45th president disclosed that he has already made up his mind on that issue, but the “big decision” is the timing of the announcement.

    “Well, in my own mind, I’ve already made that decision, so nothing factors in anymore. In my own mind, I’ve already made that decision,” he told the outlet.

    “I would say my big decision will be whether I go before or after,” Trump said, indicating that he is undecided on whether to announce before or after the 2022 midterm elections.”

  7. “The Hidden Agenda Behind the New York Times’ Desperate Puff Piece on Ray Epps”


    “The New York Times just released a puff piece on Ray Epps that is hugely important.

    Ray Epps, the only person caught on camera repeatedly directing people into the Capitol, is the only January 6 rioter for whom the New York Times has written a highly sympathetic puff piece:”


    There’s video of this guy everywhere, multiple places, multiple times, orchestrating the crowd. Yet he isn’t charged but the GrandMa above was?

    He was there orchestrating this for the feds.

    Here’s some video.

    Tons more video evidence at the Revolver link. He’s a free man with all this evidence against him, yet the cancer patient GrandMa above who trespassed and took pictures is in jail for 6 months. He orchestrated and instructed people like her, yet he walks free.

  8. Purge them. Or the party will continue to be imperiled by them.

    “The Republican Accountability PAC Scam

    From the economy to Ukraine, RINOs and Biden are disasters.”


    “They wanted Joe Biden, they worked to get Joe Biden, they got Joe Biden.

    But they claim to be Republicans.


    And now the results produced by all those Never Trumpers in the anti-Trump Republican Accountability PAC are in.

    Here is this from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights:

    Date: 4 July 2022

    From 4 a.m. on 24 February 2022, when the Russian Federation’s armed attack against Ukraine started, to 24:00 midnight on 3 July 2022 (local time), the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 11,152 civilian casualties in the country: 4,889 killed and 6,263 injured. This included:

    a total of 4,889 killed (1,862 men, 1,264 women, 137 girls, and 157 boys, as well as 41 children and 1,428 adults whose sex is yet unknown)
    a total of 6,263 injured (1,246 men, 881 women, 138 girls, and 193 boys, as well as 190 children and 3,615 adults whose sex is yet unknown)
    In Donetsk and Luhansk regions: 6,252 casualties (2,844 killed and 3,408 injured)
    On Government-controlled territory: 5,242 casualties (2,643 killed and 2,599 injured)
    Got that? With Donald Trump gone from the White House and Joe Biden in his place, as the Republican Accountability PAC wished, Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, killing and injuring tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

    Well done, Republican Accountability PAC!

    Putin saw in Joe Biden exactly what, according to the New York Times, Biden’s own staff is seeing — that the president of the United States, whom the Republican Accountability PAC went out of their way to elect, is in fact a weak, doddering old man who, per the Times:

    often shuffles when he walks, and aides worry he will trip on a wire. He stumbles over words during public events, and they hold their breath to see if he makes it to the end without a gaffe.

    Then there’s the U.S. southern border under Biden. Here’s the headline from Fox News:

    Texas Gov. Abbott blames Biden immigration policies for ‘invasion’ driven by cartels at southern border

    The story begins:

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott believes that there is an ‘invasion’ going on at the southern border driven by cartels and exacerbated by White House policies.

    Excellent job again, Republican Accountability PAC.

    You wanted Biden, you abandoned the president who wanted to protect — and was protecting — the border, and now, per the governor of Texas, the policies you supported have produced an “‘invasion’ going on at the southern border driven by cartels.”

    Bravo, Republican Accountability PAC! Bravo!

    And let’s not forget what the economic policies of the man you wanted elected have produced for Americans. Here are a few of those headlines, starting with this one from June of this year:

    Gas Prices Soar to Record High for 9th Consecutive Day During Joe Biden’s War on American Energy

    This jewel of a news report begins by saying this:

    Gas prices soared to a record high on Monday for the ninth consecutive day during President Joe Biden’s war on American energy, according to AAA data.

    The average price of a gallon of gas is $4.86, up 25 cents from last Monday. Last month, gas prices were $4.27, nearly 60 cents less expensive.

    And that’s just the price of gas. The Western Journal reports that

    One of the biggest hits to the wallets of everyday Americans came in the category of food, as both meat and egg prices rose more than 11 percent over the course of a year.

    The price of furniture and bedding rose “13.8 percent in price, while new vehicles rose 11.8 percent” while “used vehicle prices have jumped 37.3 percent since December 2020, and hotels have risen 27.6 percent.”

    CNBC headlined this:

    Inflation rose 9.1% in June, even more than expected, as consumer pressures intensify

    Bravo again, Republican Accountability PAC! Bravo again!

    Here’s a refresher on what the so-called “Republican Accountability PAC” is really about: They are nothing more than the modern incarnation of the Ruling Class of the GOP Establishment. They’re livid at an outsider bringing fresh, intellectual accountability to the Republican Party, not to mention attracting millions of Americans who have never set foot in a country club.

    There is nothing new about this. Let’s take a look back at just how the rise of outsider Ronald Reagan was treated in the 1960s and 1970s by the Republican ancestors of today’s anti-Trump Republican Accountability PAC. As I have noted previously here in The American Spectator:”


  9. There’s many lessons to be learned here, but they won’t be by our govt. Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime.

    And there are so many questions still remailing.

  10. The Biden admin summed up in 2 words.

    “‘Impossibly Stupid'” “US Farmland Was Just Sold to a Chinese Firm and There’s a Big Problem With Its Location”


    “A Chinese company’s recent purchase of farmland in North Dakota has lawmakers and analysts sounding the alarm about potential espionage.

    The 300-acre farm, sold to Fufeng Group, is just 12 miles from Grand Forks Air Force Base, which houses sophisticated military drone technology.

    Fufeng Group said it is planning to use the land to build a $700 million corn milling plant that would create at least 200 jobs as well as residual opportunities for logistics, trucking, and other services.

    But US military officials are raising the alarm nonetheless. Senior Air Force officers circulated a memo in April warning that the presence of Fufeng Group in Grand Forks, a town of just 60,000 people, was a national security threat.

    “Some of the most sensitive elements of Grand Forks exist with the digital uplinks and downlinks inherent with unmanned air systems and their interaction with space-based assets,” wrote US Air Force Maj. Jeremy Fox.

    A Chinese firm with close proximity to such data “would present a costly national security risk causing grave damage to United States’ strategic advantages.”

    Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) has also expressed opposition to the presence of Fufeng Group, which he views as a front for the Chinese government.

    “I think we grossly under appreciate how effective they are at collecting information, collecting data, using it in nefarious ways,” Cramer told CNBC. (New York Post)

    Gordon Chang, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, blasted the sale of the farmland on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday, calling the move “impossibly stupid.”

    “First of all, the Chinese are extremely aggressive,” he said. “But the more important story is that we are letting them do this. We are letting them buy a parcel 12 miles from a sensitive military facility where with passive listening equipment they can figure out almost everything we’re doing with those drones. This just is impossibly stupid.””


  11. The naivety of the Jan 6th protesters would be amusing if it wasn’t so tragic. Yes, police do infiltrate protest groups, yes you will be punished more severely for a crime with political overtones than non-political. And yes, the movement or leader you support will abandon you without thinking about it. I don’t think a senior citizen should spend anytime in jail for the Jan 6th protest but I could’ve told anyone prior to Jan 6 that this would be the result. And Trump won’t save her, he probably won’t even know her. As for Epps — he was cynical and smart enough to know when to bargain with authorities. And no, leftist aren’t treated nicely either.

    The protests against the Supreme Court — as long as they are in a public space, ie the sidewalk — are protected by a Supreme Court decision. Its not the same as breaking into the Capitol. Protesting in front of a restaurant serving Kavaugh (or his house) is a constitutionally protected activity. Those who protested during the Kavaugh hearings were cited for disturbing the peace and fined. I don’t think (I know) Trump didn’t think through the legal ramifications of what he encouraged his supporters to do. Breaking into the capital, etc has a higher penalty.


  12. The lack of baby formula is a market failure. Blame capitalism. If you think the gov’t is in charge of producing and distributing baby formula; you’re more socialist than me. Yes its easy to blame Biden but capitalism failed. Do you honestly think Trump could run a baby formula company; he lost money on New York real estate……

    Similarly, blaming the president on gas prices and subsequent inflation when this is occurring world wide is silly. Do the Republicans really want a president so powerful he can control gas prices and the market? This is the market economy playing out. The real problem is corporate price gouging but when the Democrats proposed holding energy companies accountable the Republicans said no. The war in the Ukraine has been going on since 2014 yet somehow Biden is responsible for the casualties???? Do Americans really believe their president is that powerful and do they want their president to be that powerful??

    Trump may be the most popular Republican but he won’t win a general election. As much as people don’t think Biden is doing a good job — he’s being criticized from the right and left hence his low ratings — Trump will still lose. Key states are still leaning Democrat — in the Senate race Georgia will go Democrat; in Michigan’s governor race, the Democrats are in double digits. etc. And if Biden retires as he should, it will be more difficult for the Republicans.


  13. The leading cause of post adolescent female sexual assault is mom’s boyfriend. Ethnicity, immigration status, etc make no difference. Since this case involves a minor, the media and the politicians need to be far more circumspect. This case, and many others like it, are tragic and those who seek to make a political statement or advantage from it, are simply adding to the tragedy.


  14. Chinese companies are buying real estate around the world. Its nothing new, and I’m sure Chinese companies own land and resources all over the US. Its close proximity to a US base is probably not new either. Overseas, consider the small country of Djibouti, located at the Gulf of Aden across from Yemen. Right now it hosts naval bases from China, France, Italy, USA, UK, Spain and Saudi Arabia. India and Russia have also expressed interests in setting up a base. For Djibouti this is no brainier — they are leveraging their location to make money from the great powers. All these bases are mere kilometres apart.

    The real danger to other countries is the Chinese deb trap. Chinese companies closely linked to the gov’t or party will offer to build infrastructure projects and when a country or region can’t pay for it, they takeover or demand such concessions that the gov’t fails. Sri Lanka is the most current example.
