mascot for themselves, suggests fierce
replacement for GOP 0 replies
U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez set herself up for a round of stinging mockery on social media after whining that Republicans have an elephant as their mascot. The progressive New York lawmaker sparked plenty of eyerolls on Twitter after she posted her jab at Republicans and offered a “new mascot proposal” that essentially suggested the left just “take elephants from Republicans.” Ocasio-Cortez ridiculed the GOP for not announcing a new platform as this year’s Republican National Convention kicked off. The RNC left the 2016 party platform in place in a new resolution explaining that the 2020 challenges and changes made the move necessary and, instead, they would “enthusiastically support” President Trump’s agenda.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was fact-checked after she attempted to claim that a new coronavirus treatment recently green-lighted by the Trump administration and announced by the president on Sunday was not approved by the FDA or top immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. On Monday as the Republican National Convention got underway, Maddow broke in during one segment to ‘fact-check’ President Donald Trump’s statement that “your blood is valuable, that plasma thing.” “Again, the president not talking in a way that is copasetic with the science,” she continued.
Republican after seeing RNC: ‘They put
Democrat Party to shame’ 3 replies
A C-Span caller who’s a lifelong Democrat from a liberal Ohio town said he was so inspired and moved by the Republican National Convention that he will now support the Republican Party. “I’m a lifelong Democrat. I’m from Lorain, which is a Democrat city in Ohio,” said a caller named Rick. “We are a Democrat town, and we have been for 50 years. After watching the [RNC] convention tonight, I am definitely changing my vote to Republican. They put the Democrat Party to shame. I’m going to file with the Republican Party now.” When asked by the C-Span host what convinced Rick to switch sides,

Critics of mass mail-in balloting including President Donald Trump who worry about the potential for voter fraud due to outdated registration rolls were vindicated last week after canvassers discovered 72 percent of Detroit’s voting precincts did not match the number of ballots collected. Officials in Michigan’s largest county have asked Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office to conduct an investigation in the findings by the Wayne County Board of Canvassers ahead of a critical November election in a battleground state that is vital to the president’s reelection after he barely won it nearly four years ago. “Without an explanation from Detroit election workers for the mismatches,”
Convention: ‘You’ve Neglected Us for Too
Long,’ ‘We’re Sick of It’ 3 replies
Maryland congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik (R) said at the 2020 Republican National Convention on Monday that Democrats have neglected black constituents for “far too long” and that she supports what President Donald Trump is doing for all Americans. “Let me remind you the Democrats have controlled the part of Baltimore City for over 50 years and they have run this beautiful place right into the ground,” Klacik said. “Abandoned buildings, liquor stores on every corner, drug addicts, and guns on the street — that is now the norm in many neighborhoods.” Klacik said Democrats are for high taxes

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

The difference in tone between the Democrat and Republican conventions could not be more distinct. The four days of the Democrat infomercial were characterized by misery and anger. Not one of the Democrat speakers even smiled. They made it clear, each and every one of them, that they hate this country. Consider Michelle Obama’s scowling face; every person who spoke exuded rage, fury that President Trump had survived the four years of their demented attempts to destroy his presidency. Even before the election, higher-ups at the FBI, the DOJ and the CIA had hatched a scheme to prevent his victory.
rousing speech 2 replies
At the end of their grim convention, the Democrats formally nominated Biden. A fragile-looking Biden gave a short, anodyne stump speech that garnered enthusiastic praise from Democrats grateful that he didn’t get confused or say, “you know, the thing.” Republicans did things differently. They nominated Trump on the first day. Trump then appeared in North Carolina before a small, live audience and, showing his usual boundless energy, Borscht Belt comic timing, and mastery of the material, gave a 52-minute stemwinder. Trump could not have presented a starker contrast to Biden’s geriatric minimalism. From the start, Trump was on fire. He opened by dropping a hint that, in the Russia Hoax investigation,
lie about Trump’s acceptance speech 7 replies
The Democrats and their fellow travelers in the NeverTrump Lincoln Project are terrified that, if Americans hear Trump without mediation, Americans will (a) like what they hear and (b) know that neither he nor his supporters are racist. (And defamatory racism accusations, of course, are the biggest sticks with which they can beat conservatives.) So it was that, when Trump appeared in North Carolina to give his acceptance speech upon receiving the Democrat nomination, CNN cut away from the speech because of alleged “outright lies.” Then, the hate-filled carpetbaggers in the Lincoln Project, a coalition made up of failed Republican campaign advisors,
for the ‘right to try’ lifesaving medicines 10 replies
One of the best and most important speeches of either national convention came from a young lady named Natalie Harp, a onetime bone cancer patient who quite appropriately praised President Trump for signing the “right to try” legislation that allowed her to take the experimental medicine that saved her life. The truth is that under Trump, a combination of legislation and administrative action by Trump’s appointees at the Department of Health and Human Services has improved American healthcare in numerous ways. As Harp noted in her speech, these Trump administration actions have sped up the approval process for generic drugs, improved price transparency, provided more insurance options than the regimented choices

Hillary Clinton urged Joe Biden not to concede the presidential race if he is trailing President Trump on election night. Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year’s election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic. She told Showtime’s The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day. “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don’t give an inch
It is now November 2021, one year after Joe Biden was elected president after a razor-thin election. We have been given a glimpse into the future to see Biden’s America. Summer 2021 was another scorcher. The rolling brownouts California suffered in 2020 spread throughout the West. Record demand for air conditioning combined with the ongoing closures of coal, nuclear, and even gas-powered electric plants have left millions powerless in these heat waves. Energy Secretary Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with the support of President Biden, has permanently extended the airlines’ drastic curtailments of flights, first seen during the late pandemic, in keeping with the Green New Deal they both support.
