  2. But no mean tweets….

    Biden is allowing it all to flow in freely, because he won’t secure the border. He knows this is happening, but he isn’t doing anything about it and border patrol is too busy babysitting illegal invaders.

    “In U.S., Poor Life Ratings Reach Record High”

    https://news.gallup.com/poll/397286/poor-life-ratings-reach-record-high.aspx

    “The percentage of Americans who evaluate their lives poorly enough to be considered “suffering” on Gallup’s Life Evaluation Index was 5.6% in July, the highest since the index’s inception in 2008. This exceeds the previous high of 4.8% measured in April and is statistically higher than all prior estimates in the COVID-19 era. Across extensive measurement since January 2008, the suffering percentage has reached 4.5% or higher on a handful of occasions.

    The most recent results, obtained July 26 to Aug. 2, 2022, are based on web surveys of 3,649 U.S. adults as a part of the Gallup Panel, a probability-based, non-opt-in panel of about 115,000 adults across all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

    For its Life Evaluation Index, Gallup classifies Americans as “thriving,” “struggling” or “suffering,” according to how they rate their current and future lives on a ladder scale with steps numbered from 0 to 10, based on the Cantril Self-Anchoring Striving Scale. Those who rate both their current and future lives a 4 or lower are classified as suffering. Those who rate their current life a 7 or higher and their anticipated life in five years an 8 or higher are classified as thriving.

    The percentage of U.S. adults estimated to be thriving has steadily declined since it reached a record high of 59.2% in June 2021. The latest estimate of 51.2% is an 18-month low. The lowest recorded thriving rate of 46.4% was measured twice — first, in November 2008 amid the Great Recession, and second, in late April 2020, during the initial economic shutdown associated with the outbreak of COVID-19 in the U.S.”

    “Cheney’s Humiliating Defeat Is Another Sign That We Are Winning”

    https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2022/08/18/cheneys-humiliating-defeat-is-another-sign-that-we-are-winning-n2611869

    “Here’s a thought exercise – would Liz Cheney have gotten more or fewer votes than she did if she had announced, right before the election, “I have monkeypox?” Considering that the pus plague is polling better than she did in the Wyoming primary the other night, perhaps she should have just announced that “I am monkeypox.”

    She is Republican monkeypox, you know. She is a walking, talking, warmongering, loathsome disease infecting the nether regions of the Republican Party, and her resounding rejection by the decent Americans of Wyoming demonstrates that we are curing the infection that is her kind. The Bill Kristols, the Jen Rubins, the Jeff Flakes, and the John McCains are gone, and we don’t miss them. Miracle Whip Mitt will be gone next time. He won’t be missed either, except by MSNBCNN and WaPo when they need a sitting senator to sell out the people who once had his yellow back.

    We are the new Republican Party, one not dedicated to getting its leading lights invited to DC cocktail parties but one determined to drop a turd in the DC punchbowl.

    And the new Republican Party has no place for Liz Cheney, her horrific father, or other insipid creatures like them. We’re tired of GOP poohbahs who never met a war they didn’t want your kids to fight. The Cheneys are absolutely perfect examples of what we are talking about. What have they ever done? I mean accomplished, as opposed to run their fool mouths about. What’s Dick Cheney’s big score? What’s in his win column? Nothing, and the same with his useless daughter.

    That’s not to say they haven’t done anything. They just haven’t done anything that wasn’t terrible. The aptly-named Dick’s incompetence managed to get thousands of our men and women maimed for…what? But hey, maybe his pal George can paint some pictures of them. He recently put up an ad for his hideous spawn calling Trump the most dangerous American in history. Leaving his historical illiteracy aside, that would be the guy behind Iraq describing the guy who started zero wars in office as “dangerous.” Hey, which one would you rather hunt with?

    And his grotesque daughter was right on brand by joining the Democrats for a kangaroo kommittee that would have made Stalin blush. Her destruction of the norm of due process by putting out a TV-ready show trial with no possibility of the confrontation of witnesses, cross-examination, or counter-arguments did more damage to America than a few hundred selfie-takers in the Rotunda ever could. And this FBI raid? Chalk up the new “Sic the dogs on the previous guy” norm to the Lizard. Congratulations on making the Roman Empire great again, Lizzy, you historically illiterate mediocrity who would be nagging middle schoolers to use their inside voices if your daddy hadn’t hitched his wagon to the Bush dynasty.

    What have they created? Nothing. Instead, they wreck and think themselves special.

    But that’s their style. That’s their oeuvre. The Cheneys, and the rest of the Never Trump trash, have never built, fed, fueled, or – notably – defended America. They simply got into office and ruined our country. They are vultures, living off the corpse of an America they inherited. They have no accomplishments to their name, none, yet still, they have their infinite and inexplicable self-regard. They are not merely bad people. They are corrupt and incompetent people and everything they lay their bloody claws upon turns to Schiff.

    This is why the Beltway Cowgirl’s humiliation is so sweet. The people of Wyoming rejected her and her scuzzy papa wholly and unequivocally. They see her for what she is, a duty-dodging fraud wrapping herself in the American flag and pretending to be something other than just another swamp-dwelling hack who left America worse for her being here.”
