Friday Talking Points -- Biden Speaks, The World Listens

[ Posted Friday, March 4th, 2022 – 17:43 UTC ]

This week, President Joe Biden gave his first State Of The Union speech to the United States Congress, to the American people, and to the rest of world. This speech had to be hastily rewritten at the last minute, obviously, due to intervening events. Russia's Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine at the end of last week, which was obviously a lot more important than any political points or laundry lists of proposed legislation. So the speech got a quick makeover.

What emerged from this process was almost certainly a lot better than the speech Biden had initially planned on giving. The first 15 minutes or so (of a speech that lasted a wee bit longer than one hour) were entirely devoted to addressing the invasion, the geopolitical situation, and what America was doing and where we stood. Now, Biden doesn't technically count as a "wartime president" during the crisis (since the U.S. is not actually at war with Russia), but it is still having a major effect on how the public sees both him and our country. Biden calling for everyone to stand united with Ukraine is an effective political stance, it cannot be denied. Even the extremists on right-wing cable channels have had to very abruptly cease their admiration for Putin and their denigration of the seriousness of what's happening in Ukraine. America is unified once again against Russian tyranny.

Which, you've got to admit, is a good way to start the biggest political speech of the year. For those old enough to remember the Cold War, it is merely a return to what you grew up with. For those young enough not to remember this, it must seem like something out of a history book has come horrifyingly alive. For all those (of any age) who may have believed major land wars were just never going to happen again, it was a jarring wakeup call.

So far, the war has been a lot less one-sided than predicted. The might of Mother Russia doesn't seem all that impressive, after the first week of open warfare against a smaller and worse-equipped military. The advance of the Russian army has been slowed, and in some instances halted. But they do continue to advance, and they continue to besiege cities. Russia has already achieved one major objective, in that they now control a land corridor on the Black Sea coast which reaches from Russia itself all the way to the Crimean peninsula. Russia hastily built a massive bridge to connect Crimea after it had ruthlessly stolen it from Ukraine years ago, but what they really wanted was a solid land route -- which they now control, with the exception of the besieged city of Mariupol. But other than taking over a few smaller cities, Russia has still not achieved any of its main objectives, much less the occupation and pacification of the entire country of Ukraine. The two biggest cities have not fallen, and the advance on Kyiv in particular seems to have gotten completely bogged down.

Ukrainian forces are achieving more success than predicted. They have not retaken any territory from the Russian forces, but they have halted it in many areas. This is no longer a blitzkrieg war. The anti-tank and surface-to-air weapons we provided the Ukrainians with are taking a serious toll, destroying tanks and armored personnel carries and downing Russian aircraft. That is an unexpected and heartening story of success. But it is limited, so far. The Russian advance may have slowed, but so far it cannot be said to have been halted. Given time, they may chalk up more successes. And they could win a long war of attrition.

However, the Ukrainians (as with any defender against invasion) have a much higher "will to fight" than the Russian forces. Ukrainians are defending their homeland -- and there's no bigger motivation than that. Civilians are signing up to join in the fight, and Ukrainians abroad are returning home to help as well. The Russians, meanwhile, don't really have any reason to fight other than the deluded propaganda issuing forth from Putin. They are engaging in mass slaughter of civilians, which is becoming more and more obvious each day. Whether this saps the Russian forces' will to fight, and to what degree, is still an open question.

In any case, here at home it is crystal-clear who the good guys are in this fight and who are the bad guys. There's not a lot of disagreement about that. America, as Biden stated, is going to stand with the Ukrainians and freedom against Vladimir Putin's tyranny. Biden's tactic of releasing an astonishing amount of intelligence about what was planned before it happened has robbed Putin of the ability to manufacture any "false flag" reason for waging this war in the first place. Nobody believes him -- and that was precisely what releasing this intelligence was designed to achieve.

So Biden's speech began with a soaring call to stand with Ukraine and against Russia, and that's exactly what the American public wanted to hear. Joe Biden may not be perfect, but he is a lot of things that the previous occupant of the Oval Office was not: Biden is sane and rational. He is smart and willing to learn from others. Biden cares about our country a lot more than he cares about the size of his own ego. Biden believes facts when they are brought to him, even if they disagree with something he has previously said. Biden does not throw temper tantrums. Biden believes in diplomacy, he believes in projecting American strength abroad, and he believes in NATO and other international organizations of democracies. Donald Trump believed none of that -- he was only concerned with how he looked on television and his own petulant demands that reality be somehow changed to conform with his biases and delusions. In short, with Putin we've already got one narcissistic whackadoodle on the world stage, so it is a genuine relief to know how much worse the situation would be if there were two such superpower leaders right now.

Hopefully, the American public will be reminded of all this, both by Biden's speech (which was incredibly well-received) and by America's actions in the weeks to come. As we said, this is truly a time for national unity. It will be interesting to see Biden's polling numbers over the next two weeks.

While Biden was at his best -- not just animated but genuinely emotional -- during his speech's opening segment, the rest of the speech was mostly an admission that his own agenda has suffered some damage over the past year. Biden did rightfully tout the two major things he has achieved -- the American Rescue Plan and the bipartisan infrastructure plan -- but his calls for moving forward over the next year were muted by the reality of Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema in the U.S. Senate. The two have anointed themselves gatekeepers for what can pass a Democratic Congress, and they are not going to budge an inch on that stance no matter how much damage it does to the Democratic Party or Joe Biden. So Biden attempted to focus instead on what they might accept. This is a big step down from the speech he gave to Congress last year when he began his presidency, obviously. But at the same time, it is realistic. Biden didn't waste a lot of time making an emotional and righteous case for legislation that has zero chance of passing, to put this another way. If he had done so, he would have doubtlessly been accused of overpromising.

Meanwhile, Republicans are experiencing some serious disarray. This is for the usual reason, of course: Donald Trump. Trump can faithfully be counted on to do the worst thing possible, a talent he exhibited once again in both the run-up to the war and since it began. Trump has tried to rewrite history to say that he was super-tough on Putin (which is just laughable) and that he was the great defender of Ukraine (which is absolutely deluded -- remember when he threatened to withhold military aid if the Ukrainians wouldn't dig up political dirt for him?). This hasty rewrite became necessary after Trump heaped praise on Putin while the tanks were rolling across the border. Trump called Putin a "genius" and "very savvy," and as we all know, once the Republican "Dear Leader" speaks it becomes impossible for all the other Republicans to contradict him.

You know, just like in Putin's Russia.

Many other Republicans and conservative media commentators had been parroting Trump's pro-Putin propaganda, but have suddenly had to reverse course. It's almost funny the "reasoning" they come up with for spouting their previous idiocy, in fact. Tucker Carlson is blaming Kamala Harris, apparently for being a woman (or something, it's hard to tell with him). Senator Ron Johnson tried to blame the whole war (somehow) on Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, which is just bizarre. But the prize for "most idiotic Republican idiocy of the week" has to go to Representative Clay Higgins, who tweeted out the following word salad:

You millennial leftists who never lived one day under nuclear threat can now reflect upon your woke sky. You made quite a non-binary fuss to save the world from intercontinental ballistic tweets.

Dictionary.com hilariously responded:

We're not entirely sure what this tweet is supposed to mean, and we're literally the dictionary.

At the other end of the crazy train was Lindsey Graham, who reacted (as is his wont) in the most belligerent way possible. In a tweet, he laid out what he wanted to happen:

Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military? The only way this ends is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out. You would be doing your country -- and the world -- a great service.

Brutus, of course, killed Julius Caesar, while Stauffenberg tried but failed to assassinate Adolf Hitler. This brought the most extraordinary rebuke from one of the chief conductors of the GOP crazy train, Marjorie "Three-Names" Taylor Greene herself:

This is irresponsible, dangerous & unhinged. We need leaders with calm minds & steady wisdom. Not bloodthirsty warmongering politicians trying to tweet tough by demanding assassinations.

As the Politico headline put it: "When MTG Tells You To Dial It Down...."

Of course, the Republicans (and Trump) have a long history of using Ukraine as a pawn in their own political machinations, which more than a few are now pointing out in no uncertain terms.

One Republican did manage to stand up to Trump with admirable fortitude (but then it's all really part of his plan to run against Trump in 2024). No matter what his motivation, though, Chris Christie said exactly what every other Republican should have said when they learned of Trump's fawning Putin-praise:

"How can anyone with any understanding of the world call Putin's decision to invade Ukraine 'genius' and 'very savvy' as we watch him unite the rest of the world against Russia in nearly an instant?" Christie asked Monday on Twitter. He went on to say that Putin has two choices now: an "unwinnable occupation of Ukraine" or a "humiliating retreat."

"Yeah, that's 'genius' and 'very savvy' alright," Christie wrote.

In other "Republicans In Disarray" news, the fight between Senators Mitch McConnell and Rick Scott heated up once again. Scott had the temerity to actually admit what the Republican Party's agenda truly was (which includes raising income taxes for over half of Americans), while McConnell simply doesn't want Republicans to admit what their agenda is to the voters before the midterms. This could be a major schism developing within the party, but so far Scott is out on a limb on his own, so we'll see how much impact it truly has.

Other things are happening in politics, but that seems enough of a wrap-up for this week -- a week overshadowed by a land war in Europe and President Biden's reassuring words to the whole world.

 

Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week

We have a few Honorable Mention awards to hand out before the big one, today.

The first goes to Beto O'Rourke, who romped his way to victory in the Texas Democratic gubernatorial primary this Tuesday. O'Rourke is now a known quantity in Texas, which obviates the need for him to 'introduce' himself to the voters, and this paid off handsomely for him. In a field of four opponents, O'Rourke won more than 90 percent of the vote and carried 'nearly all of the 254 counties in Texas after losing 76 of them four years ago.' That's impressive, although his chances in November of beating the sitting Republican governor are anyone's guess right now.

Also in Texas, Jessica Cisneros forced her fellow Democrat Henry Cuellar into a runoff race. Cuellar is one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, while Cisneros is a solid progressive. Cuellar only managed 48.4 percent of the vote, while Cisneros chalked up 46.9 percent and one other candidate got 4.7 percent. Since over 50 percent of the primary electorate voted against Cuellar, it is entirely possible for Cisneros to beat him in the runoff. Which is also pretty impressive.

On the medical front, Senator Ben Ray Luján triumphantly returned to the Senate floor this week, barely one month after he suffered a stroke. He was warmly welcomed back by all, and this means Democrats aren't one senator down anymore (in a 50-50 Senate) so it is welcome news indeed.

But the obvious winner of the Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week this week is none other than President Joe Biden. Both for his well-received State Of The Union address strongly denouncing Vladimir Putin while standing up for Ukraine, as well as for his leadership throughout the crisis the war has caused. Biden critics are left mumbling how he should have moved faster or done things ever-so-slightly differently, but it's hard for them to gain any traction with such weak tea.

Biden knows full well that he cannot send American troops into battle -- which includes resisting the growing calls for America to announce and enforce some sort of no-fly zone over the country. This would put American pilots into direct warfare with Russian pilots, and could very easily (considering Putin's unhinged willingness to pay any price) lead to World War III. Biden is smart enough to know this. Within that constraint, however, Biden has done everything he can to aid the Ukrainians in their existential fight and to shore up the defenses of NATO countries that are terrified of what Putin might try next.

It has not really been long enough for public reaction to both the war and to Biden's speech to gel. We should start to see indicators of how much the public approves of his leadership over the course of the next week, though, so it'll be interesting to see if he regains some of his standings in the job approval polls.

For now, however, the whole world is more than just a little relieved that someone like Joe Biden is in charge of America's response. Especially when you consider the lunatic and unhinged alternative.

For being sane, intelligent, and measured in a crisis, President Joe Biden is easily our Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week this week.

Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week

We have to say we're not happy with the news that the Biden administration has released new guidelines stating that getting a security clearance may be impossible for anyone who invests in marijuana businesses, but we can't accurately pin that on any one person at the time, so we'll hold off handing out an award for it. Still, it does reflect on Biden's "drug warrior" past thinking, so we have our suspicions.

Instead, we're going to give the Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award to Michael J. Madigan, the former speaker of the Illinois statehouse. From the Department of Justice's own webpage come the shocking details:

A federal grand jury in Chicago today indicted former Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives MICHAEL J. MADIGAN on racketeering and bribery charges for allegedly using his official position to corruptly solicit and receive personal financial rewards for himself and his associates.

The 22-count indictment accuses Madigan of leading for nearly a decade a criminal enterprise whose purpose was to enhance Madigan's political power and financial well-being while also generating income for his political allies and associates. The charges allege that Madigan, who served as Speaker and occupied a number of other roles, including Representative of Illinois's 22nd District, Committeeman for Chicago's 13th Ward, Chairman of both the Illinois Democratic Party and the 13th Ward Democratic Organization, and partner at the Chicago law firm of Madigan & Getzendanner, used these positions to further the goals of the criminal enterprise. The indictment alleges that Madigan directed the activities of his close friend -- co-defendant MICHAEL F. MCCLAIN -- and that McClain carried out illegal activities at Madigan's behest. Madigan and McClain allegedly caused various businesses, including the utility company Commonwealth Edison, to make monetary payments to Madigan's associates as a reward for their loyalty to Madigan, at times in return for performing little or no legitimate work for the businesses.

Madigan, McClain, and other members of the enterprise allegedly unlawfully solicited benefits from businesses and other private parties. The indictment accuses Madigan of engaging in multiple schemes to reap the benefits of private legal work unlawfully steered to his law firm, including legal work from those with business before the State of Illinois and City of Chicago.

Madigan, 79, of Chicago, is charged with racketeering conspiracy and individual counts of using interstate facilities in aid of bribery, wire fraud, and attempted extortion. McClain, 74, of Quincy, Ill., is charged with racketeering conspiracy and individual counts of using interstate facilities in aid of bribery and wire fraud.

While he still deserves his day in court, obviously, things don't look especially good for Madigan. That seems like a pretty damning indictment, and one that will be tough to walk away from. Illinois and Chicago have a long history of political corruption, of course (see: Rod Blagojevich, to cite just one example), and it certainly looks like they still have a ways to go in cleaning it all out. For now, Michael Madigan certainly deserves our Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award.

[Michael Madigan is no longer a public servant, and it is our policy not to provide contact information for private individuals, so you'll have to search it out yourself if you'd like to let him know what you think of his actions.]

 

Friday Talking Points

Volume 653 (3/4/22)

We've got a mixed bag of talking points this week, with some positive cheerleading and some abject shaming of the other side of the aisle. Enjoy responsibly, as always!

 

1
   Jobs, jobs, jobs

This is a growing problem that Democrats need to address.

"Once again, the American economy under President Joe Biden chalked up stellar jobs numbers last month, with 678,000 new jobs and unemployment at the historic low of 3.8 percent. But somehow the public isn't getting this message -- polls show most Americans don't believe more jobs are being created. The truth is we are approaching the end of a job recovery never before seen in America. More jobs have been created since Biden took office than at any other such time in American history. When the pandemic hit, the economy lost a staggering 22 million jobs. When Joe Biden took office, we were still down 10 million jobs. Now a total of 20 million have returned to work. At the rate we are going, we should hit full recovery in the job market in about three months -- much faster than anyone thought possible. That is a stunning record of success, and I wish the news media would occasionally point it out instead of always highlighting bad news. More jobs were created during Biden's presidency than ever. That's a pretty easy story to tell, you would think."

 

2
   Zelenskyy Democrats

An absolutely brilliant slogan, to give credit where it is due.

"Right before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Donald Trump offered nothing but praise for Vladimir Putin. He called him 'savvy' and 'genius.' Republicans were too scared to denounce him. Think about that -- Republicans are more scared of Trump getting angry with them then they are about refusing to side against a tyrant. Or 'a different tyrant,' maybe I should say. Some Republicans have been using Russian propaganda talking points for a while now, rather than condemning Putin and standing with the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy. This is disgusting and shameful, and I want everyone to know I echo the words of Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney -- 'We're Zelenskyy Democrats. And they're Putin Republicans.' It's that simple, folks."

 

3
   A very stable genius

Hammer Trump and all those who refuse to denounce his words.

"When Trump first called Putin 'genius' and 'savvy,' all too many Republicans cowered in fear rather than denouncing this praise for an American adversary. At first they were even too scared to denounce Putin, but now they're just too scared to denounce Trump. The number of Republicans willing to stand up for what is right is pathetically small, although some of them in the Republican Accountability Project are about to call their fellow Republicans out with a scathing new ad. But the only one I've seen who gets it is Chris Christie, who tweeted out: 'How can anyone with any understanding of the world call Putin's decision to invade Ukraine "genius" and "very savvy" as we watch him unite the rest of the world against Russia in nearly an instant?' He should have said almost the rest of the world, because far too many Republicans have remained silent about their party leader's reckless praise for a tyrant."

 

4
   Those words have actual meaning

Separate the serious from the hyperbole, and draw the contrast.

"You know what? A few weeks ago, Canadian truckers were in the news protesting what they called 'tyranny' while supposedly standing up for 'freedom.' There's even a convoy of trucks here, heading for Washington D.C., using the same slogans -- even though they are not subject to mask or vaccine mandates at all. But those words actually have meaning, as the whole world is now seeing. For two years now we've had to listen to a whole bunch of petulant whining about how health measures designed to make Americans more safe and avoid a horrible death are somehow worse than any tyranny ever seen on Earth. This was always nonsense, but this idiocy still continues. Representative Lauren Boebert, who has such a tenuous grasp on basic human decency that she heckled the president when he was talking about his own dead son, this week actually stated: 'But we also have neighbors to the north who need freedom and need to be liberated and we need that right here at home as well.' She was commenting on the situation in Ukraine when she said that. But you know what? Most people are intelligent enough to realize that truckers having a hissy fit over wearing a mask or having to get vaccinated is just not the same thing as tanks shelling apartment buildings full of civilians to crush a democracy. It's just not. The words 'freedom' and 'tyranny' have actual meaning, and it's about time all the lunatics in the Republican Party realized that cold hard fact once again."

 

5
   GOP does not support the troops

This one needs highlighting in each and every one of these House districts, from now until November.

"The House of Representatives heeded President Biden's call to provide Veterans Administration health benefits to our brave men and women suffering all kinds of horrible aftereffects from the 'burn pits' in Afghanistan and especially Iraq. Biden believes his own son Beau was killed by this exposure, so it is a very personal issue for him. While 34 Republicans supported these troops, sadly the vote was only 256 to 174. Yes, you heard that right -- 174 Republicans just voted against health benefits for veterans for injuries sustained in a war theater. That is beyond disgraceful, it is downright shameful and disgusting. I hope the voters in each and every one of those 174 House districts holds these Republicans responsible for their indefensible vote, come November."

 

6
   You say there's no room, but there they are

Speaking of disgusting and indefensible Republican behavior....

"Two members of the United States House of Representatives spoke at a gathering of white supremacists last weekend. The crowd they spoke to had been chanting "Putin! Putin!" earlier, cheering on the invasion of Ukraine and literally giving 'a round of applause for Russia.' Since then, Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene have gone unpunished by Republican leaders or the Republican Party. Oh, they can manage to say the right words -- days after the fact, and begrudgingly. They say this is somehow 'unacceptable' and that there 'is no room in the Republican Party' for such views, but in reality these leaders are doing absolutely nothing about it. Kevin McCarthy says he'll have a quiet word in private with the two. Mitt Romney was at least brave enough to call the two 'morons' who are 'missing a few I.Q. points.' But Adam Kinzinger (who is walking away from his career in Republican politics out of disgust for his own party) put it best: 'What I think we should do is kick them out of the party. What do I think we're going to do? Nothing. Liz [Cheney] and I can get censured; they're going to get help up as the future leaders of the party.' Cornered Republicans sanctimoniously state there's no room in the party for white supremacists, but there they are -- and they do nothing about it."

 

7
   3,272 times!

And to end on a lighter note, this was a little-noticed investigative story this week that struck us as rather funny.

"Remember all those new segments of border wall Donald Trump liked to brag about? Remember him calling them 'impenetrable' and predicting they would solve the problem forever? Well, it turns out that Mexican smugglers of both people and drugs have cut through Trump's walls an astounding 3,272 times over the past three years. It has cost the government millions to repair these breaches, which are pathetically easy to create. All it takes is a power tool available at any hardware store, in fact. So much for Trump's so-called impenetrable wall. Guess he lied about that one, too."

    Remember that Trump not only "threatened to withhold" the military aid but actually ordered that the funds be withheld?

    Remember that the GAO found that the Trump administration withheld the funds illegally on Trump's order:

    "Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law."

    Remember that in 2017, Trump echoed the Russian propaganda conspiracy theory that it was Ukraine that had interfered in the 2016 election, thus advancing Russian interests over those of our ally, Ukraine.

    Remember that in July 2017, Congress approved new sanctions against Russia for having attacked the 2016 election, but Trump tried to weaken the legislation. Trump ultimately signed the bill because it had passed with veto-proof margins. He then issued a statement criticizing the proposal.

    Remember also July 2017 after Trump had a private chat with Putin and announced plans to partner with Russia on an "impenetrable Cyber Security unit" that would (his claim) secure future elections. Remember it being compared to having the perp who broke into your home install a security system.

    Remember in 2018 that Trump groveled before Putin in Helsinki, Finland, taking the side of Putin over our own intelligence agencies.

    In times like these it is instructive to ask yourself: What if Obama did that?

    John Kerry: Putin’s Useful Climate Idiot

    Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine marks the end of the West’s Era of Illusions. It was an era in which Western elites obsessed about solving climate change because the climate crisis was far more dangerous than issues of war and peace and the stability of the international system. They even convinced themselves that climate change causes war, so climate change policy could double as national security policy; and, for many years, the annual round of kumbaya UN climate talks was the apogee of international relations.

    In a BBC World Service interview, presidential climate envoy John Kerry expressed concern about the amount of greenhouse gas being emitted from the war in Ukraine.

Hopefully, Kerry continued, Putin would realize that Russia’s land is thawing, and the people of Russia are at risk.

    Get that, people?? John Kerry is concerned that, what with people dying by the hundreds in Ukraine, people are going to "lose focus" on the Democrat Party's obsession, climate change...

    Kerry concluded with an expression of pure self-deception, saying he hopes Putin “will help us to stay on track with respect to what we need to do for the climate.” Stay on track? Russia has never hidden its intention to avoid cutting its emissions. Russia’s second Nationally Determined Contribution, submitted in November 2020 under the Paris climate agreement, is to limit its 2030 emissions to “no more than 70% of 1990 levels.” The document is careful to avoid pledging to cut or reduce emissions. The 1990 baseline year was the last one before the collapse of the highly inefficient and heavily polluting centrally planned Soviet economy. Thus, the 70% limit actually enables Russia to increase its emissions by 34% – and that’s before taking account of any changes in forestry and land use that would allow Russia to claim credit for negative emissions.

    Putin was *NEVER* serious about climate change..

    Putin saw an opportunity to use the Democrat Party as his own personal USEFUL IDIOTS and go along with the West so the West would strangle themselves from their own oil..

    Putin played Democrats PERFECTLY...

    Putin actually got the Democrats to spearhead the weakening of the entire West...

    Boebert was one of the "no" votes, thereby denying approximately 3.5 million veterans easier access to the healthcare and disability benefits they earned for serving their country. Anyone clueless enough to believe Boebert actually gave a rat's ass about the deaths of 13 soldiers in Afghanistan need look no further than that.

    Lackluster support from Democrats is one big reason that Pres. Biden’s job approval ratings are the lowest of his presidency. Since April of 2021, Biden’s net job approval rating among Democrats in surveys from Quinnipiac, Marist, Washington Post/ABC and Gallup, has dropped between 15 and 20 points. Last spring and summer, Biden’s approval ratings among Democrats were in the 90-94 percent range. Today, they are in the mid-to-high 70 percent range. In other words, Biden’s grades have slipped from an “A” to a “C” among his own voters.

    TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwanese officials have been working hard to discourage a catchphrase that has emerged over the last week, “Today Ukraine, Tomorrow Taiwan.”

    Since Russia’s attack on Ukraine, the slogan has been repeated in local headlines, discussed in panels and uttered by jittery citizens worried that the war will embolden their similarly powerful and aggressive neighbor China, which claims Taiwan should be under its rule.

    Florida poised to limit abortions as Supreme Court mulls Roe

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday said he would sign a 15-week abortion ban into law after Florida’s legislature joined the trend of Republican-led states anticipating a U.S. Supreme Court decision that could sharply limit abortion rights in America.

    DeSantis, a Republican, told reporters at a news conference in Jacksonville that “I think that we’ll be able to sign that in short order,” a day after the GOP-controlled statehouse approved the bill following a series of emotional debates that often veered into painful, personal stories.

    Republicans across the country are moving to replicate a 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi that the Supreme Court seems poised to uphold this summer. If the court weakens or overturns Roe v. Wade, Florida could be less of a destination for women throughout the South whose states have more restrictive abortion laws.

    If Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the Big Tech bullies insist on stopping “misinformation,” why aren’t they censoring President Joe Biden for his repeated flagrant lie about the economy? You know, the one where he claims we were in a state of crisis when he came into office, from which he and his $2 trillion “American Rescue Plan” saved us.

    Biden says it over and over again. Here’s a sampling over the past year:

    “We’ve turned the tide on a once-in-a-generation economic crisis. And families are beginning to be able to breathe just a little bit easier.”
    “Look, when we came to office, we knew we were facing a once-in-a-century pandemic and a once-in-a-generation economic crisis.”
    “When I was sworn in as president, the nation was struggling to pull out of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.”
    In his State of the Union, Biden claimed that his “American Rescue Plan” was one of the “few pieces of legislation” to have “done more at a critical moment in our history to lift us out of a crisis.”

    This is a lie. A big fat lie. A big fat Biden-sized lie.
    https://issuesinsights.com/2022/03/04/its-time-to-kill-this-big-fat-biden-lie-once-and-for-all/

    The country was not in an economic crisis, or a crisis of any kind, when Biden took office.

    It is a crisis now, however, thanks to what Biden has done since taking office.

    Here are the facts.

    On the day Biden signed his “American Rescue Plan” into law, the COVID-lockdown recession had been over for more than a year.

    The National Bureau of Economic Research, which is the official scorekeeper of downturns and recoveries, says that the 2020 recession lasted all of – wait for it – eight weeks. It was, in fact, the shortest recession in modern history. It started in February 2020 and was over by April 2020.

    The recession was also completely avoidable since it was caused by the catastrophically ill-informed and wrongheaded decision by governments, enacted in a panic and with no empirical support, to force the economy into a lockdown to “flatten the curve” on COVID outbreaks. We know that, based on scientific studies done since, these lockdowns were worse than doing nothing.

    As university researchers who did a “meta analysis” of studies on the effectiveness of lockdowns concluded, “Lockdowns have had little to no public health effects,” adding that “they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”

    This once-in-a-generation mistake threw the then-booming economy into a tailspin, tossed millions out of work, and sparked trillions in deficit-financed spending to spare the country a worse fate.

    Democrats just HAD to take down President Trump.. So they latched onto ANYTHING that would help them do that..

    A normal once every few years pandemic comes along, not much different than Odumbo's H1N1 pandemic and Democrats latched onto that, dialed up the hysteria and fear-mongering to 11... HUNDRED and proceeded to totally destroy this country's economy..

    The FACT that COVID was a POLITICAL pandemic is well documented.. Basement Biden and Headboard Harris are the mother and father of vaccine hesitancy...

    Further proof that COVID is solely political?? Magically, the CDC changed policies to support the politics of the Democrat Party...

    Basement Biden and Horizontal Harris and their CDC was NEVER about the science..

It was $21.92 trillion in February 2020, plunged to $18.5 trillion by April 2020, and topped $22 trillion by January 2021. (See the nearby chart.)

    For Biden, he needed to pretend the country was in a state of crisis to justify his $2 trillion spending spree. Since then, he’s needed to keep up the fiction about this crisis so he could claim to have “rescued” the country from it.

    “Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, we lifted this country out of crisis, created 6.5 million jobs – more jobs than any American has ever created in a single year,” is a favorite Biden line.

    The reality is that Biden’s rescue plan didn’t rescue anything. It and Biden’s other ministrations have made the economy worse. His reckless spending set off an inflationary spiral, one that Biden has no clue how to stop. His “rescue” plan’s unemployment bonuses and his COVID mandates exacerbated the labor shortage and supply chain problems. His war against oil helped push up gasoline prices.

    The simple fact is Basement Biden is incompetent.. He simply CANNOT lead.. Everything he and the Democrats have done turns to shit..

    One of the most eye-roll-inducing lines from President Joe Biden -- who once threatened DeSantis with government action because his "patience is wearing thin" -- the other night during the State of the Union address was his contention that we should "stop looking at COVID-19 as a partisan dividing line and see it for what it is: a God-awful disease."

    It was Basement Biden and Horizontal Harris who made COVID a partisan pandemic.. By ignoring the SCIENCE and simply following politics...

    Then, of course, there's the small issue of DeSantis being objectively and morally correct about mask wearing. In January, when Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin issued an executive order that freed parents to choose whether their kids wore masks, the entire left-wing punditsphere accused him of infanticide. The White House's favorite columnist, Jennifer Rubin, remarked that Youngkin had "brought DeSantis anti-mask nuttery to VA." Within a couple of months, the CDC changed its super-scientific mask guidelines just in time for Biden to announce them in the State of the Union speech. By this time, nearly every state had followed Youngkin's lead. No explanation yet from Rubin, or any other Democrat, on why Biden has engaged in this nuttery as well.

    Once again... The GOP leaders were dead on ballz accurate about masks and lockdowns and everything..

    The Democrat hysterical fear-mongerers were PROVEN to be completely and utterly ignorant.. On everything..

    Even by the hyper-progressive standards of the Canadian education sector, Ryerson University in Toronto has distinguished itself as being unusually energetic in its social justice messaging. Last spring, Indigenous activists destroyed the statue of the university’s namesake, Egerton Ryerson, on the basis that he helped design Canada’s system of residential schools. By way of response, the school’s president could not even bring himself to criticize the vandals, but rather expressed his relief that none of them were injured during the course of their crime. He also pledged that “the statue will not be restored or replaced,” and asserted that these events only showcased the importance of the work being conducted by a task force looking into the renaming of the university. To no one’s surprise, that task force not only concluded that Ryerson should be renamed, but also that the school should make amends for its previous association with the Ryerson name, as well as implement the usual litany of new Indigenous- and black-themed consciousness-raising courses and programs. (While no new name has yet been chosen for the school, numerous Ryerson scholars now have taken to referring to their school as “X University.”)

Worse still for Biden, Americans have lost faith in his leadership during his first year in office. His approval rating has dropped to 37 per cent in a recent ABC News-Washington Post survey.

    The Russian invasion of Ukraine understandably took up much of Biden’s speech. He began with a rousing call to support President Zelensky and the people of Ukraine, rightly noting that ‘their courage, their determination, inspires the world’. Biden also vowed that Vladimir Putin would ‘pay a price’ for invading Ukraine, and announced that he would seize the luxury yachts and private jets of Russian oligarchs. At times, he sounded optimistic and a tad self-congratulatory, even though the reality on the ground in Ukraine remains grim. As he delivered his speech, a 40-mile-long Russian convoy was approaching Kyiv, bombs were exploding in major cities and civilians were dying.

    No attempt was made to connect this major world event with US domestic policy, even though there was an obvious connection staring Biden in the face: energy production. Unlike German chancellor Olaf Scholz, who has cancelled the certification of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia, Biden has not reversed course on his energy policies – even though these policies have held back US energy production, and have led to increased imports of oil from Russia.

    The US is STILL buying Putin's oil..

    Before the war in Ukraine erupted, higher electricity, petrol and gas prices had already driven up the cost of living for Americans and Europeans alike. This problem was entirely self-inflicted, reflecting how Biden and other leaders have pursued environmental goals at the expense of energy security and abundance. The invasion of Ukraine has made the need to increase energy output from all sources, including oil, gas and nuclear power, even more urgent.

    Bizarrely, Biden claimed in his speech that his green policies would ‘cut energy costs for families an average of $500 a year by combatting climate change’. In reality, the direct impact of his climate agenda is to raise energy prices by reducing the supply and increasing the cost of coal, oil and natural gas. Clearly, not even heightened conflict with Russia could shake Biden’s faith in the green religion.

    Biden’s first 10 minutes on Ukraine ended up being the most memorable section of his speech. The remainder was a long and disjointed wish list. Much of it was a reassertion of his ‘Build Back Better’ agenda – but this time without that branding, as that approach has failed to gain enough support in Congress from both his own party and from Republicans. Biden struck a note of empathy for Americans feeling the pain of inflation, but he didn’t take ownership of how his policies (including his $1.9 trillion in public spending) have contributed to higher prices. Instead, he promised to make more goods in America, calling his approach ‘building a better America’. Increasing productive capacity in the US is a good idea, but Biden didn’t address why there has been so little investment in this to date – perhaps because this would have to include the environmental and other regulations he has imposed on the economy.

    Let's face reality, people...

Indeed, it was striking how nearly all of the lawmakers attending the speech were maskless. ‘Our kids need to be in school’, he said. But it has been his government, his health officials and fellow Democrats across the country who have been needlessly keeping kids out of school, causing them great harm in terms of learning, social development and even health. It has been parents who have pushed to get schools open – and for protests againsts school boards that refused to reopen their doors, these concerned parents were compared to ‘domestic terrorists’ by Biden’s allies.

    As I write, Russian forces are laying siege to cities across Ukraine, contesting vital ports, and targeting civilians and critical infrastructure. The bombardment of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, has left at least dozens dead and hundreds more injured. Russian troops are now in control of Kherson, a major city in the south. The southern port city of Mariupol has been encircled, and the Russian attack there has cut power, water, and heat. Kyiv is under attack, and there are reports that Russia is preparing a major amphibious assault on Odessa.

    Meanwhile, our leaders appear to be living in a fantasyland where their expressions of solidarity with Ukraine mean something tangible. Economic sanctions, the banning of Russian products from store shelves, the exclusion of Russian cats from cat shows, and the seizure of mega-yachts owned by Russian oligarchs, among other weak and inchoate responses from the West, are not going to stop Russian artillery and missiles from reducing Ukrainian cities to rubble in the coming days and weeks. The Ukrainians have fought bravely and inspired the world with their valor, but a new phase of the war is beginning, and Western leaders need to think seriously about what’s coming, and how this will end.

The NATO allies understand this, on some level, and are pouring weapons into Ukraine — rocket launchers, Javelin antitank missiles, Stinger surface-to-air missiles, along with machine guns, sniper rifles, and ammunition.

    But they are not sending military aircraft, and they are not sending troops. The United States will not even impose sanctions on Russian oil or entertain the idea of ramping up domestic oil production to offset Russian imports. A White House flack told reporters aboard Air Force One this week: “We don’t have a strategic interest in reducing the global supply of energy.” So that’s that.

    Here is the hard truth: If the West is not going to send warplanes and troops, if we are not going to stop Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by force of arms, and by our inaction allow the bombardment of Ukrainian cities to proceed, then we need to be honest with the Ukrainians about that. We owe it to them to give them a realistic picture of what they can expect from us, and what they cannot expect. Indeed, we owe them a great deal more, but we at least owe them that.

We have had quite enough of both. Indeed, there were opportunities for the West to prevent this war, to persuade Moscow and Kyiv to negotiate a settlement, going back years. But in our fecklessness, we chose not to and instead kept talking tough and hoping for the best.

    Now that Russia has entered this new phase of the war, the worst thing we could do for the Ukrainians would be to give them false hope as Russian forces close in, and then do nothing while their cities burn. If we will not do what’s necessary to stop Russia by force, then we should do what we can, right now, to broker a negotiated peace.

    Perhaps Roger Stone is "going to go through some things."

    As a mob ransacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Roger Stone, Donald Trump’s longest-serving political adviser, hurried to pack a suitcase inside his elegant suite on the fifth floor of the Willard hotel. He wrapped his tailored suits in trash bags, reversed his black face mask so its “Free Roger Stone” logo was hidden, then slipped out of town for a hastily arranged private flight from Dulles International Airport.

    “I really want to get out of here,” Stone told an aide, as they were filmed at the hotel by a Danish camera crew for a documentary on the veteran Republican operative. Stone said he feared prosecution by the incoming attorney general, Merrick Garland. “He is not a friend,” Stone said.

    Stone allowed the filmmakers to document his activities during extended periods over more than two years. In addition to interviews and moments when Stone spoke directly to the camera, they also captured fly-on-the-wall footage of his actions, candid off-camera conversations from a microphone he wore and views of his iPhone screen as he messaged associates on an encrypted app. Reporters from The Washington Post reviewed more than 20 hours of video filmed for the documentary, “A Storm Foretold,” which is expected to be released later this year.

    The footage, along with other reporting by The Post, provides the most comprehensive account to date of Stone’s involvement in the former president’s effort to overturn the election and in the rallies in Washington that spilled over into violence on Jan. 6.

    Stone privately coordinated post-election protests with prominent figures, and in January he communicated by text message with leaders of far-right groups that had been involved in the attack on the Capitol, the footage shows. The filmmakers did not capture conversations between Stone and Trump, but on several occasions, Stone told them or his associates that he remained in contact with the president.

    Among Biden’s first acts as president was to hamstring American energy and surrender our energy dominance, and for one reason: special interest politics.

    At the behest of far-left environmental activists, President Biden cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline, paused new oil and natural gas leases on federal lands, forced the United States back into the job-killing Paris Climate Agreement, proposed harmful environmental rules on oil and gas emissions, and hiked the "social cost of carbon"—a government metric first used by Barack Obama—to a sky-high $51 per ton.

    Today America’s energy sector stands paralyzed, choked by a glut of federal regulations and red tape. The government’s own forecasts predict America will once again slip back into foreign energy dependence this year. All the while, the Biden administration insists on dumping apparently endless amounts of cash into pricey wind and solar projects—none of which come anywhere close to supplying the energy that a world superpower requires.

    All of that and Basement Biden and the Democrats funded Putin by buying his oil....

    Editorial: It’s the inflation, stupid

    It must be nice to live in Joe Biden’s world.

    There inflation is transitory, a $3 trillion infrastructure bill costs “zero dollars” and you can spend money like it’s going out of style, yet still trim the deficit.

    Fantasy land.

    Here in the real world, Americans are hit with sticker shock every day.

    Political strategist and ABC News contributor Donna Brazile summed it up last week: “Inflation is robbing us of our joys, stealing our hard-earned wages. I can’t go to the grocery store without complaining about the price of eggs and bacon. I mean a pound of bacon is almost $9. Jesus. I mean, that’s it for me and bacon. I never thought I would give it up.”

    Lots of people have, along with other grocery items they would normally just toss in the cart. And it’s not likely to get better anytime soon.

    As Time reported, Russia’s attack threatens key shipments of some of the world’s staple crops.

    Ukraine and Russia together account for more than a quarter of the global trade in wheat, as well as a fifth of corn sales. Port and railway closures in Ukraine, aka “the breadbasket of Europe,” have already started to throw the nation’s commodity exports into chaos.

    Russia is also a major low-cost exporter of nearly every kind of fertilizer. And fertilizer is vital to the food supply chain. Disrupt that trade, costs go up for farmers — and it’s passed on to consumers.

    What we need — and need to hear — is a concrete plan to tackle inflation.

    We got some bullet points from Biden in his State of the Union Speech Tuesday.

    His plan calls for:

    Making more things in America and bolstering our supply chains;

    Cutting everyday costs for working families and reducing the deficit;

    Promoting fair competition; and

    Eliminating barriers to good-paying jobs

    Of course, he repeated the old progressive saw about making sure “corporations and the wealthiest Americans start paying their fair share”.

    Unsurprisingly, he left out how his administration’s wave of massive spending led to the inflationary fiasco we find ourselves in. Biden did, however, play to his party’s progressive wing with the “corporations and rich people are bad” theme.

    “I think I have a better idea to fight inflation,” Biden said on Tuesday. “Lower your costs, not your wages. Make more cars and semiconductors in America. More infrastructure and innovation in America,” he said.

    In Biden’s world, this — and some magic math — will bring home the bacon.

    In other words, Basement Biden's SOTU was a washout.. It merely confirmed what the vast majority of Americans already know...

    Once again.. ANOTHER bullshit witch hunt "criminal" case against President Trump crashes and burns from lack of FACTS.. :D

    How the Manhattan D.A.’s Investigation Into Donald Trump Unraveled

    The criminal investigation into the former president crashed amid a disagreement about the merits of bringing a case. The debate pitted a new district attorney against two veteran prosecutors who had pursued a case against Mr. Trump for years.

    On a late January afternoon, two senior prosecutors stood before the new Manhattan district attorney, hoping to persuade him to criminally charge the former president of the United States.

    The prosecutors, Mark F. Pomerantz and Carey R. Dunne, detailed their strategy for proving that Donald J. Trump knew his annual financial statements were works of fiction. Time was running out: The grand jury hearing evidence against Mr. Trump was set to expire in the spring. They needed the district attorney, Alvin Bragg, to decide whether to seek charges.

    But Mr. Bragg and his senior aides, masked and gathered around a conference table on the eighth floor of the district attorney’s office in Lower Manhattan, had serious doubts. They hammered Mr. Pomerantz and Mr. Dunne about whether they could show that Mr. Trump had intended to break the law by inflating the value of his assets in the annual statements, a necessary element to prove the case.

The tension spilled into the new administration, with some career prosecutors raising concerns directly to the new district attorney’s team.

    Even prosecutors that were persecuting President Trump knew that the facts were simply not there...

    ’s Iran envoy in Vienna, Robert Malley, reportedly is readying to finalize a deal that makes a number of worrying concessions to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and his regime.

    Gabriel Noronha, a former Senate Armed Services Committee aide to the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and former State Department official, has tweeted specifics of some American concessions to Iran. Noronha says his former State Department, National Security Council, and European Union colleagues were so alarmed about compromises the Biden administration appears to be making with Iran that they allowed him to publish details to alert Congress to how the pending agreement could undermine America’s national security interests.

    The agreement details are known to the governments of Russia, China and Iran, but evidently not to Congress, and certainly not to the American people. It’s possible that an agreement could be signed by early next week.

    The Biden team’s desire to revive what they worked on during the Obama administration and to have the United States rejoin the nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is no surprise. What is shocking is the extent of sanctions relief that Malley, the lead negotiator, appears ready to offer. Earlier this year, Malley’s deputy, Richard Nephew, protested the lack of a harder approach by resigning.

    Noronha tells me his former colleagues hold out hope that Congress “will act to stop the capitulation” by the Biden administration. Sanctions relief reportedly is being offered for some of Iran’s worst human rights abusers and terrorists, as well as the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which the State Department designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in 2019. Among those who reportedly could be granted a reprieve from sanctions are IRGC Gen. Hossein Dehghan, who led forces that killed 241 U.S. soldiers in 1983 in Beirut, and Ayatollah Khamenei’s personal corporations, worth tens of billions of dollars.

    This could be just the tip of the iceberg. The U.S. helped to restore Iran’s voting rights at the United Nations by releasing Iranian funds frozen in South Korean banks. And an exchange of U.S. and Iranian prisoners, with a release of funds, is reported to be part of the deal. As Noronha tweeted: “Every individual and entity that was de-sanctioned under the JCPOA’s Annex II Attachment 3 will have all sanctions stripped again, even though close to 100 of them were later sanctioned for terrorism, human rights violations, and participation in Iran’s WMD activities.”

    The Biden team evidently intends to bypass the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act (INARA) of 2015, which requires that any changes to the nuclear deal be given a 30-day hearing in Congress. The last thing that President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken want is to shine a spotlight on their concessions to Iran. The claim that the world will be safer with this deal would be laughable if it were not so dangerous.

    Lawmakers in both parties see limits on US help for Ukraine
    It seems incomprehensible that concessions to Iran would occur while their kindred spirit in Russia is lobbing explosives into residential neighborhoods of Kyiv to break civilian morale. One could make a strong case that the jihadist beliefs of Khamenei and his minions are just as dangerous as the brutal authoritarian in Moscow.

    Trump’s Virtues

    We are still in need of the qualities of great leadership.

    If there is one thing that patriotic Americans know about Trump it is that he, like them, is unequivocally pro-American and willing to fight to defend the American way of life. When Collin Kaepernick and his ilk knelt before the American flag, Trump called them “sons of bitches.” As always, he was being forceful, authentic, and unmistakably clear.

    Trump stood up for America every time he violated the strictures of political correctness. Trump has said over and over exactly what political correctness prohibits one from saying: “We have our culture, it’s exceptional, and that’s the way we want to keep it.” Trump’s contempt for political correctness showed patriotic Americans that its ever-tightening grip could be loosened. As Trump and his supporters know, political correctness cripples our ability to think clearly and act decisively.

    Trump said Haiti is a “shithole” and that Representative Maxine Waters has a low IQ. These were not racist lies but uncouth, politically incorrect observations that most people would agree with but not dare say. Most of us, conservatives no less than liberals, are reluctant to criticize black Americans for fear of being called a racist. Trump, on the other hand, is an equal opportunity criticizer. This is what we used to call “colorblindness.”

    Trump treated the woke media with the same contempt he treated political correctness, provoking their outrage and revealing their utter corruption.

    Trump made no apologies for America’s past. His unlimited confidence in America is, in this time of national doubt and self-loathing, just what the doctor ordered. Trump thinks America can vanquish all comers if we just put our mind to it and he is right.

He knows that slavish devotion to theory can lead to nonsensical beliefs; for instance, that children should be able to undergo “gender conformation”; that police forces should be defunded; or that biological boys should be able to compete against girls in athletics.

    Trump knows it is time to make a stand, and for that we need strong men. Weak men do anything to avoid admitting the hardest truths because they lack the resolve to do what truth demands from them. Trump is a manly man. In present times, when manhood is being stripped of its masculinity, traditional manhood, even when flawed, has much appeal.

    Trump is also comfortable in his own skin, a prerequisite for independence and courage. Trump ripped apart people he thought were weak. Sometimes he went overboard, but his supporters forgave his excesses because strength is in such short supply. Trump plays to win. And he knows that in war reaching across the aisle is usually a sucker’s game

Culturally, Trump, fueled by Big Macs, understands, as does the outsourced American worker, that a cheap smartphone is not a replacement for a meaningful job and the life it supports. Trump also understands that what Americans of all races and creeds desire are stable communities, and the opportunity to raise their families in a culture that values industriousness, self-reliance, patriotism, and freedom.

    Trump revealed—not “caused”—the divide in this country. He awakened the public to the dangers of woke communism and, as good leaders do, gave his supporters the breathing room to voice their discontents. This may have been his most important achievement, made possible by qualities independent of policy. You cannot win a war unless you know you are in one.

    Well, now lets go with some great facts about my great state of Florida!! :D

    The sun is shining in Florida, thanks to a sweeping entrepreneurship agenda

    Prosperity is blooming in the Sunshine State.

    First, the state ended the unemployment bonus last May, months ahead of schedule. Shortly after, unemployment costs in the state dropped 86%, and employers hired 1.3 million new workers. Since then, the state has regained 92.1% of the jobs it initially lost in the early days of the pandemic. The Sunshine State isn't just for retirees and snowbirds — businesses and families are flocking there by the thousands.

    Florida was already one of the best places to be an entrepreneur. Having no personal income tax, a low corporate tax rate, and a generally pro-business regulatory environment, it’s the perfect place to start a business and build a bright future.

    Florida’s continued trend toward an ever-more-business-friendly climate is effective — the state has seen 20 consecutive months of job growth and 14 consecutive months of labor force increases. When businesses thrive, so do the families who work for them or own them.

    Basement Biden and the Democrat Party could (and SHOULD!!) take leadership lessons from Governor DeSantis...

    And it’s only going to get better, thanks to a series of bills passed in 2021 that remove barriers to work and further encourage the creation of new businesses.

    New research from the Foundation for Government Accountability shows how the Florida Legislature’s new reforms will remove these barriers and empower entrepreneurs across the state.

    In many places, localities have imposed regulations that severely limit a person’s ability to run a business out of their home. Some of the nation’s most successful companies, such as Disney and Microsoft, started as home-based businesses. By enacting statewide standards for how local governments regulate home-based businesses, Florida is freeing up entrepreneurs to operate from their homes while allowing cities to maintain authority over neighborhood issues.

    Lengthy application processes and unnecessary red tape discourage innovation and hurt the economy. While cities such as Dallas have missed out on tax revenue and new home development due to a mounting backlog of building permits, Florida has streamlined its application process and reduced the amount of time it takes to get a permit.

    Nationwide, 1 out of 5 workers requires the government's permission to do his or her job. Licensing laws vary across states and even across localities. They are often duplicative and sometimes even directly conflict with each other. To solve this issue, Florida now prohibits localities from adding additional licensing requirements, allowing entrepreneurs to put that "open for business" sign up in the window sooner rather than later.

    Florida is AMERICAN Friendly and BUSINESS Friendly..

    Compare and contrast that to shitholes like California and Portland OR...

    Job training programs are not always work-centric. They are often inefficient, forcing job seekers to fill out redundant paperwork and creating administrative problems. Florida is working to ensure job training programs aren’t wasting taxpayer dollars and creating more bureaucracy. To make sure the programs are working, the state will be tracking transitions out of welfare programs based on metrics such as participant completion, job attainment, and wages.

    All of these commonsense solutions passed by the legislature will serve Floridians by getting the government out of the way of economic growth, removing barriers to work, and encouraging more Floridians to start businesses in the state. And, just maybe, other states will be inspired to follow Florida's lead.

    With job growth projected to outpace the entire nation, things are going exceedingly well for Florida. Meanwhile, states that aren’t so friendly to entrepreneurs or interested in creating a haven for job creators are struggling. New York City faces a staggering unemployment rate of 9.4%, twice the national average, with little rebound in sight. And as of last fall, before the omicron variant swept through the country, California had only recovered fewer than three-quarters of the jobs lost early in the pandemic.

    Biden's State of the Union address won't help Democrats politically

    Facing lagging poll numbers and an international crisis in Eastern Europe, President Joe Biden delivered his first State of the Union address on Tuesday.

    Biden’s remarks on Ukraine, policing and COVID-19 were clearly the strongest moments of the night, both stylistically and substantively. On the other hand, Biden’s reframing of his economic plan and his monotonous listing of big spending priorities were major flops.

    To be sure, this State of the Union address — like many before it, with a few notable exceptions — likely won’t move the political needle in Biden’s favor, especially given the hyper-partisan nature of our politics as well as the enormity of the crises America faces both at home and abroad.

    The weakest point of the speech for Biden — which is more substantive, less rhetorical — was the refashioning of his economic agenda, in light of the Build Back Better plan’s failure. Without using the phrase “Build Back Better,” Biden tried, without success, to sell the big-spending proposals in his Build Back Better agenda as anti-inflation and deficit-reducing measures.

    Karl Rove aptly noted the problematic nature of this approach in his critique of Biden’s address: “Voters aren’t likely to believe inflation can actually be reduced by massively expanding government spending through social programs.”

    Democrats Are Still Delusional About Trump

    The moment is reminiscent of the febrile days of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, when anti-Trump commentators engaged in elaborate exegesis of this interview or that filing, all of which was leading, they insisted, to a catastrophic conclusion for the president. Instead, of course, Mueller concluded his work without charging the president. Several associates ended up being charged or convicted (though some were pardoned by Trump), but the closest Mueller came to charging Trump was a timid though clear implication that he obstructed justice.

    The resolution was a painful letdown for many people. Yet even though the deus ex Mueller failed, some of them continue to look for a silver bullet from some crusading prosecutor. The indications are not much better elsewhere. Last week, two attorneys who were leading the investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office into Trump’s business practices resigned, reportedly because their boss, Alvin Bragg, was reluctant to indict the former president. New York Attorney General Letitia James continues to investigate Trump, which seems to be a source of frustration for him, but that is a civil, rather than criminal, probe.

    That's not the case. Trump did a fair number of things that were bold and worked out quite well. Jerusalem embassy, Syrian missile strike, operation warp speed, qassem soleimani, and there are a few more as well I'm sure. That's why I think he's the fortieth best president, not forty fourth or forty sixth.

    [102]. Trumps’ Virtues????

    If there is one thing that patriotic Americans know about Trump it is that he, like them, is unequivocally pro-American and willing to fight to defend the American way of life.

    Like when Trump told the mob on January 6 that HE would lead them to the Capitol to carry out the insurrection…but he willingly let everyone else do his dirty work while he hid.

    When Collin Kaepernick and his ilk knelt before the American flag, Trump called them “sons of bitches.” As always, he was being forceful, authentic, and unmistakably clear.

    He’s a racist…that much is unmistakably clear!

    Trump stood up for America every time he violated the strictures of political correctness.

    Not sure how “Grab them by the pussy” can be seen as “standing up for America”?!?!

    Trump has said over and over exactly what political correctness prohibits one from saying: “We have our culture, it’s exceptional, and that’s the way we want to keep it.”

    Pretty sure that is the White Nationalist’s creed.

    As Trump and his supporters know, political correctness cripples our ability to think clearly and act decisively.

    So your stupidity is caused by “political correctness”??? It CRIPPLES your ability to think clearly and act decisively? Wow! Strange thing to admit to, but we will just have to take you at your word!

    This is what we used to call “colorblindness.”

    I thought that was what Trump called the way his company dealt with the applications of Blacks seeking to live in one of his complexes…he never saw their applications.

    Trump thinks America can vanquish all comers if we just put our mind to it and he is right.

    That only works for those living in their own reality bubbles.

    Trump is a man of action, guided by facts and common sense.

    A little warning next time you are posting something this hilarious! That sent RC Cola flying out my nostrils and that burns!

    He has no use for theories.

    Or science, or rational thinking, or intelligence, or the opinions of actual experts in any given field. He prefers being a f’ing moron.

    He knows that slavish devotion to theory can lead to nonsensical beliefs; for instance, that children should be able to undergo “gender conformation”; that police forces should be defunded; or that biological boys should be able to compete against girls in athletics.

    Or that Hillary Clinton ran a child sex ring in the basement of a pizza place…or Obama was not born in the US…

    Trump knows it is time to make a stand, and for that we need strong men. Weak men do anything to avoid admitting the hardest truths because they lack the resolve to do what truth demands from them.

    Like weak men who cannot accept that they lost the election because their fragile wittle egos cannot handle reality!

    Trump is a manly man.

    Thanks for the SECOND spit-take of the day!

    Trump is also comfortable in his own skin, a prerequisite for independence and courage.

    COMFORTABLE IN HIS OWN SKIN??? The man wears more makeup on his face than entire clown troupes require. That horrible hair piece that he allows to nest on his fat head. His constant lying about his height and weight…that’s being “comfortable in his own skin” to you?

    Trump ripped apart people he thought were weak.

    Attacking those who are weaker than you…that is not being strong! That is being a BULLY!

    Sometimes he went overboard, but his supporters forgave his excesses because strength is in such short supply.

    On your side of the political spectrum… strength is almost non-existent!

    Trump plays to win. And he knows that in war reaching across the aisle is usually a sucker’s game

    So he is for never-ending wars, apparently. You are an idiot following an even bigger idiot!

    Ketanji Brown Jackson's Harvard group hosted 'anti-Semitic' speaker

    Dr. Leonard Jeffries once compared Jewish people to 'skunks' who 'stunk up everything'

    FIRST ON FOX: President Biden's nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was part of a Harvard University student group that hosted a speaker with a history of anti-Semitic remarks, Fox News Digital has learned.

    Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was a member of the Black Students Association (BSA) her senior year at Harvard, according to her yearbook, when the Harvard BSA invited Leonard Jeffries, the controversial then-City University of New York professor of Black studies and Black studies department head, to speak.

    Jeffries — the uncle of House Democratic Caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries of New York — has been heavily criticized for his past anti-Semitic remarks, and the 1992 Harvard speaking engagement drew robust campus protests.

    In the same speech, Jeffries blamed Jewish people as being principally responsible for the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, according to the AJC report.

    The report also noted Jeffries’ racially-charged rhetoric "teaching that blacks are racially superior to whites" and his references to Black people as "sun people" due to "more melanin in their skin than whites, whom he calls ‘ice people.’"

    Anti-Semitism watchdogs, including the left-leaning group the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) dubbed Jeffries an "anti-Semitic" speaker in a report covering anti-Semitism on college campuses.

    "Leonard Jeffries, the former head of the Black Studies Department at the City College of CUNY, and a professor there since 1972, has espoused racist and anti-Semitic views and theories since at least the early 1980s, when his comments – made while he was department head – began to attract public attention," the ADL wrote.

    "In the spring of 1988, a white student wrote an account in the student newspaper of his experiences in Jeffries' class, Black Studies 101," the ADL, that continued. "The student recounted numerous times when Jeffries constructed large parts of his class around anti-white arguments."

    The ADL also noted the 1990 New York Times article which "reported that in an April 1990 class on African heritage, Jeffries said that ‘rich Jews who financed the development of Europe also financed the slave trade,’ and that ‘the Jewish Holocaust is raised as the only Holocaust.’"

    "That gets a green-light," Blinken said in an interview with "Face the Nation" when asked whether the Polish government, a member of NATO, could send fighter planes to Ukraine.

    The gulf widens between Democrats’ truth and lies

    The gaslighting of Americans

    f you don’t go outside the legacy media, you might have missed a few important stories.

    In New York, Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul extended the COVID-19 “emergency” to March 16, even though the pandemic is running out of steam.

    “The rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions has been increasing over the past month to over 300 new admissions a day,” she said. But, as The Wall Street Journal’s Allysia Finley points out, “In fact, state data show that daily new hospital admissions fell to around 300 from 2,100 in early January.”

    Over at The Washington Post, the editorial board accused Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton of “targeting trans kids in Texas.” Actually, the AG issued an opinion aimed at protecting children, calling the use of puberty-suppressing hormones a form of child abuse. To the Post, this interrupts “gender-affirming care,” which is actually “gender denying” experimentation that could harm a child for life. The Post also likes to use the term “abortion care” because it sounds nice.

    Democrats in the Virginia House voted in lockstep against a bill proposed by Gov. Glenn Youngkin to give parents access to all sexually explicit classroom materials. With all Republicans voting yes, the bill passed 52 to 46. The bill also passed the Senate 20 to 18, with all but two Democrats voting no.

He insisted he was tough on Russia, neglecting to mention that because of his war on American energy, we still import Russian oil and are thus financing the invasion of Ukraine. He said job creation and the economy were better than under former President Donald Trump. He declared that he, Mr. Biden, was vigorously securing the border and backing the police.

    Wokeness on Energy Is Weakness

    Biden’s energy policy is bankrupting the country and making us a paper tiger abroad.

    As Joe Biden’s approval numbers sink further into the sewer, the only thing he’s building back better is 1970s-style inflation. Up until Biden, most polls usually named Jimmy Carter as one of the weakest and most inept presidents we’ve ever had. That was until Biden showed up and said, “Hold my beer!” Which you have to know has brought so much joy to Carter. Heck, he probably has a set of “Let’s go Brandon!” PJs that he wears every night as he thanks God for the gift of Biden.

    Fact is, this country is now being “led” by a man who absolutely will go down as one of the worst presidents in our history. In just over a year, Biden has brought inflation roaring back to levels not seen in 40 years, has destroyed our southern border as millions of illegal aliens, along with Chinese fentanyl, flood the country, and now we have been involved in two major international debacles with Afghanistan and Ukraine. The list could go on, but perhaps that’s too depressing.

Now with the crisis in Ukraine we’re seeing oil approaching $120 per barrel. None of this had to happen, mind you, especially since under Donald Trump the United States had become a net exporter of energy.

    But Biden wasted no time enacting his idiotic policies. On day one of his administration he shut down the Keystone pipeline, put thousands of people out of work, crippled our self-sufficient energy production, and made us reliant on purchasing absurd quantities of oil from countries that despise us.

    But Biden’s response to this? The imbecile actually pitched his climate change bill as anti-inflation at the State of the Union, claiming it will save American families $500 a year . . . by 2030. Mind you, the American people’s increase in cost of living right now is $385 per month, or over $4,600 per year.

Energy independence leads not only to cheaper costs for consumers and thousands of jobs for Americans, it strengthens our national security and allows us to free Europe from Putin’s leverage by offering additional energy options.

    All of which is GOOD for America..

    Which is EXACTLY why Basement Biden and the Democrats WON'T do these things..

    Because they HATE America and will do everything in their power to HURT America and HURT Americans..

    The facts are clear...

    Let's continue looking at Basement Biden's "million percent better" than President Trump...

    President Trump worked with Israel to completely negate Iran's Nuclear Terrorist State ambitions.. And those efforts were EFFECTIVE..

    Until Basement Biden and the Democrats threw it all away..

    In 2018, after Israel's Mossad spy agency spirited Iran's nuclear archive out of a warehouse in Tehran and brought it to Israel, Israel's spy chiefs flew to Washington to share the findings with the Trump administration. The documents provided incontrovertible proof of Israel's long-standing contentions that Iran's nuclear program was initiated, maintained and expanded throughout the years for the primary purpose of developing nuclear weapons. Then-President Donald Trump responded to Israel's revelations by withdrawing the U.S from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—the nuclear deal the Obama administration had concluded with Iran.

    The 2015 nuclear deal placed certain restrictions on Iran's nuclear activities for a limited period. But the JCPOA allowed Iran to continue with its nuclear research and development, and placed no restrictions on Iran's missile development and proliferation. In other words, Barack Obama's deal limited what Iran could do with the nuclear capabilities it had acquired by 2015, but it enabled Iran to massively expand its nuclear capabilities for the future.

    The maximum pressure strategy was working effectively when Trump left office. Had it been retained by the Biden administration, Iran's regime would likely have collapsed by this year, rendering its nuclear weapons program dead in the water. But rather than continue a policy that was working, President Joe Biden reinstated Barack Obama's policy of facilitating Iran's nuclear program and its regional aggression by agitating for a restoration of American and Iranian compliance with the 2015 deal.

    On the nuclear front, beyond a few formalities, Biden's deal will enable Iran to move full-speed ahead with its development of advanced centrifuges and continue its race to the nuclear finish line. All limitations—which are largely unenforceable—will be removed in two and a half years. And Iran's nuclear program, which constitutes a material breach of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of which Iran is a signatory, will be legitimated by the UN and the U.S. government.

    All of these concessions guarantee two consequences. First, Iran will go to war. As U.S. Army Col. (res.) Joel Rayburn, who served as Trump's envoy to Syria and in a range of senior positions related to the Middle East in Central Command, the National Security Council and the State Department explained in a recent interview with Newsweek, with the JCPOA's implementation in 2015, Iran received billions of dollars in sanctions relief. It used the funds to expand its wars against Israel, against U.S. forces deployed in the Middle East and against Iran's Sunni Arab neighbors the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Iran fought its various foes both directly and through its proxies in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories.

    The second consequence of the new nuclear deal is that Iran will become a nuclear-armed state unless Israel attacks and destroys a sufficient number of Iran's nuclear installations to significantly scale back Iran's nuclear capabilities.

    And so we return to Israel's security brass. The most powerful shock wave Noronha's revelations produced is the one going through Israel's military high command. Israel's military leaders can no longer deny the truth that they have gone to near-superhuman heights to wish away for 20 years. Netanyahu, it turns out, was right all along.

    The contest between Iran and Israel pits a country of 90 million against a country of nine million; a theocratic regional hegemon with manifold foreign legions against a liberal democracy with no aspirations for territorial conquest. And under the Biden administration, the U.S. is standing with the Iranians.

    Germany Signals Opposition to Cutting 'Essential' Russian Energy

    (Bloomberg) — German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he opposes cutting off energy supplies from Russia, calling imports of oil and gas of “essential importance” to the European economy.

    While the European Union faces an urgent task of finding alternatives to Russian energy supplies, “this won’t happen overnight,” Scholz said Monday in a statement. “It’s therefore a conscious decision on our part to continue the activities of business enterprises in the area of energy supply with Russia.”

    Republicans and moderate Democrats alike are calling for the ramping up of American energy production, with GOP lawmakers criticizing the Biden administration for shutting down U.S. oil and gas pipelines.

    As the war in Ukraine rages on, Americans are experiencing the highest gas prices since the 2008 financial crises, with the national gas price average reaching $4 per gallon.

    Biden spent much of last year citing the need to move away from fossil fuels because climate change was the "greatest threat" to the country, and one of his first acts was to shut down the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Now, critics are slamming him by pointing to current events as evidence that energy independence is essential.

    Zelenskyy, on Monday, also called, again, for a no-fly zone over Ukraine, pleading with western allies: ""How many deaths and losses are still needed to secure the sky over Ukraine?"

    "What is the difference between peaceful people in Kharkiv and Mykolaiv and those in Hamburg and Vienna? We are awaiting the decision, clearing of the sky, either by the forces that you have or you give us the fighter planes of anti-aircraft defense that you have and that will provide the needed strength to us," he said.

    Zelenskyy said a no-fly zone is "not just for Ukraine but for yourselves, too, in order to prove that humanity will win as fast as it can."

    Germany sticks with Putin for its oil and gas
    Chancellor Olaf Scholz brushes off pressure from Ukraine and the US to stop pouring money into the Kremlin’s war coffers.

    BERLIN — German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Monday pushed back hard against calls from the U.S. and Ukraine for a ban on imports of Russian gas and oil as part of international sanctions on Moscow.

    One of the darkest ironies of Russian President Vladimir Putin's war in Ukraine is that Europe is helping fund the Kremlin's war machine through energy payments. Despite repeated pledges to reduce dependence on Russia after the invasion of Crimea in 2014, the EU has failed to combat its hydrocarbon addiction. Dismissing fears that Putin was a serious threat, Germany was long the main proponent of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline pumping gas from Russian export monopoly Gazprom straight to Germany.

    Although Berlin finally had to freeze the Nord Stream 2 project after the invasion of Ukraine, Scholz made clear that Europe's biggest economy would not make any further energy sacrifices and would keep buying from Russia.

    And now, from the ONLY OFFICIAL Weigantian™ objective and unbiased news source...

    Are Democrats Really Going To Cross the Rubicon?

    Just as Julius Caesar invited civil war by crossing the Rubicon, the partisan House committee investigating the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol let it be known that it will recommend bringing two sets of criminal charges against former President Donald Trump regarding the 2020 election. One allegation is that that he tried to obstruct the lawful counting of votes. The other is that he engaged in a conspiracy to defraud the United States through his false claims of a stolen election.

    Given how divided our country is, and the wide support Trump still enjoys, his indictment would be an incalculably reckless act. It would be tantamount to the first round of live fire across the bow. Even if the left honestly believes its claims that conservatives are itching to take up arms against the Republic – that Jan. 6 was just a dress rehearsal for a second civil war – why would they consider striking this match?

    If Democrats had a slam dunk case against Trump, one could argue that they might have some justification for putting the nation at such risk. They do not. The New York Times tersely noted that it is “far easier for the committee to claim that Mr. Trump had committed a crime … than it would be for prosecutors to win a criminal conviction over the same facts.”

    So far, the 6 Jan Committee argument – which echoes the larger left-wing push to punish and erase all narratives that do not support their preferred version of reality – appears to be that there is a single truth, their truth, and that Trump’s unwillingness to embrace it is a crime.

    It is impossible to overstate the danger of this mindset, which is a profound assault on free speech and a dramatic escalation of the effort to criminalize political differences. It is, as Democrats like to say, a page torn straight from Putin’s playbook.

    Politics in free nations is necessarily rough and tumble. It is a contest of ideas that often lack scientific precision. It makes room for debatable claims that may contain falsity as well as kernels of truth. The best evidence shows that Trump did not win as many votes as Biden in 2020, but also that it was a highly unusual contest filled with troubling irregularities. Prohibiting people from making that case is un-American.

    If Trump can be charged with a crime, what about Joe Biden, who repeatedly claimed that Trump was not legitimately elected in 2016? What about Rep. Jamie Raskin, a leading member of the Jan. 6 committee who objected to the certification of Florida’s electors by making the bogus argument that they were not qualified to serve under state law?

    Once a precedent is set, it becomes the norm. Do we really want to go down this road of indicting – rather than just challenging and debunking – those whose only crime is holding problematic opinions?

    Democrats have established the precedent that a President can be impeached SOLELY because of political differences and absent ANY crime whatsoever..

We now know that false narrative was concocted by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and embraced without evidence by the Obama White House, much of the media, the FBI, and other aspects of the Deep State.

    In its size and scope Russiagate is the worst scandal in American history. And yet Hillary Clinton and President Obama remain party heroes who are never pressed on the issue. Former Clinton staffers who spread the scurrilous Trump/Russia rumors, including Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, have only been rewarded for their perfidy.
