Section 1557 of Obamacare prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics). So to the Republicans- if you don’t like it, what are you doing about it?
The Democrats see something that they don’t like, and they fight to change it. The Republicans see something that they don’t like, and they… do nothing but bitch and complain.
It took a maverick like Donald Trump to fix the number one target of Republican ire- abortion, and they hate him for it. The Republicans need to stop being useless power mongering whores and actually do the job they were elected to do.
So far Michigan, Connecticut, and New Hampshire’s Secretary of State are saying that they will not permit Trump to be on the ballot. Lawsuits have been filed in Florida and Colorado to have Trump barred from appearing on the ballot.
The nonprofit advocacy groups Free Speech For People and Mi Familia Vota Education Fund invoked that clause Wednesday when they sent letters to the chief election officials in nine states, including Griswold in Colorado, requesting that they exclude Trump, a Republican, from their state’s ballots. Mi Familia Vota is affiliated with La Raza, a racist communist group that seeks to overthrow the US government. I have blogged and warned my readers about them for over 15 years.
The loss of the electoral votes of the states indicating that they will bar Trump from the ballot: California, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon and Pennsylvania would give Biden 319 electoral votes, making it a lock that the Democrats will win the 2024 election. The fix is in, and the 2024 election is a done deal.
Our government is being overthrown, yet the Republicans not only sit and do nothing, they actively support the insurrection. I maintain that our government was ousted in a coup and the Republicans are supporting it.
Florida has a closed primary. That means the only way you get to vote for a candidate is to be registered to vote as a member of his party. I am currently registered as a Republican, and I will be voting for Donald Trump in the primary. I will not be voting for anyone else in any other race. Once I have voted, I will immediately change my registration to “no party affiliation.” Why?
Because I used to think that the Republicans were spineless cowards. I now realize that there is no such thing as a RINO. The typical Republican is a power hungry weasel who will say whatever they have to say in order to remain in office and in power. They don’t care about the voters, nor do they care about the nation. I can no longer vote for any of our current politicians.
All of the talk shows today were talking about two things: Donald Trump’s impending arrest, and last night’s Republican Presidential Debates. Even Larry Correia is going on and on about how Trump can’t win, and we need to support one of the guys from the debate last night. He seems to think that the left wants Trump to be the nominee because they know that Biden will beat him because everyone hates Trump. Here is Trump’s mugshot:
All things being equal, I don’t think Trump is a great choice. Mostly because we know the swamp will fight him every step of the way, and let’s face it, he is old. Still, he is polling with such a large lead that all of the Republican candidates combined couldn’t beat him. With that being said, I am not really liking any of the other candidates, either.
Christie is a RINO gun grabber authoritarian that will actually be worse than Biden.
DeSantis is a great governor here in Florida, but he is too polished, and too much a favorite of the establishment Republicans, and of the MSM. I don’t trust what he is selling.
Vivek is too young and naïve. He isn’t ready.
Pence will never get the MAGA vote. They will stay home before electing him. There is no path forward for a candidate that doesn’t have the MAGA vote. They are half of the Republican base, for crying out loud.
The rest of the field either has no shot or is even worse.
When it comes election time, Trump is still the best choice. I don’t think that it matters.
The talking heads were asking callers if it came to a choice between Biden and Republican X, what would you do in the election. Most of them said that if Trump were not the candidate, they would stay home. That’s important, and I will explain.
The cheat, the fix, is in.
Trump wins the Republican nomination. It is obvious that he will do so in a landslide. At least one of his trials will happen at some point between now and June 4, the date of the last Republican primary. The Democrats are likely to get at least one conviction on the 91 charges that Trump is facing. Sorry, but Federal prosecutors have better than a 90% conviction rate. They only need one conviction on one charge for this to work. That one conviction will be enough of a fig leaf for at least some Democrat Secretaries of State to deny Trump from appearing on the ballot, claiming that the conviction bars him from running under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. If even six states, currently with a Democrat as Secretary of state don’t put him on the ballot, the Democrat runs unopposed:
Arizona (11 electoral votes)
Illinois (20 electoral votes)
Michigan (16 electoral votes)
Minnesota (10 electoral votes)
Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes)
Wisconsin (10 electoral votes)
Do the math. Losing those six swing states would deny Trump 87 electoral votes and make it virtually impossible for him to get the 270 votes needed to win the election. They don’t need to stuff a single ballot box. That doesn’t require them to pull any other shenanigans. They don’t need Oprah, Big Mike, or even Newsome. All they need is a single conviction.
There is enough hatred of Trump among the establishment Republicans that I don’t think the party will put up more than token resistance. You know, like they are now. Some strongly worded letters, fiery speeches, that sort of thing. Even if they do scream- what can they do? We have already seen what good lawsuits and lawyers do.
So as far as worrying about the debates and all of that?
I don’t think it matters. There will not be another Republican in the White House, and the Republicans in charge of the party don’t care, as long as they get to keep their cushy positions.
From the GOA and from Breitbart news: President Biden is set to announce a new rule going into effect. Universal background checks will be going into effect for ALL firearms transactions. Any firearm that changes hands will soon require a background check, per a soon to be issued executive order from Biden.
Section 12002 of the BCSA amends a subparagraph of the GCA definition of “engaged in the business” as it pertains to federally licensed firearms dealers, by striking the language “with the principal objective of livelihood and profit,” and replacing it with “to predominantly earn a profit.” As amended, the definition at 18 U.S.C. §921(a)(21)(C) reads as follows: [“Engaged in the business,”] as applied to a dealer in firearms, as defined in section 921(a)(11)(A), [means] a person who devotes time, attention, and labor to dealing in firearms as a regular course of trade or business to predominantly earn a profitwith the principal objective of livelihood and profit through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms, but such term shall not include a person who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or for a hobby, or who sells all or part of his collection of firearms.
(text that was added is in bold, text eliminated is struck through)
By choosing to interpret it in a way that is most restrictive, this EO will direct the ATF to consider anyone who sells a firearm for more than they bought it for as being an unlicensed dealer. In one fell swoop, they have virtually eliminated all private sales. This also explains why the ATF has such a hard on for kitchen table dealers as of late. Read the entire thing here. (pdf warning)
An article released by the New York Times today is reporting that, “The regulations required to put the new law into effect — expected to be released soon — would require anyone who earns a profit from selling firearms to obtain a federal license and conduct background checks. Previously, dealers were required to join the federal system only if they derived their chief livelihood from selling weapons. Failing to register carries a penalty of up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.”
This is huge. In one fell swoop, the Biden administration has enacted the most sweeping change to gun control law in decades. The rules will be backed up by a renewed push to prosecute businesses that refuse to register by accessing bank records, storage unit leases, and other expenses associated with running an off-the-books gun business.
Make no mistake- if this is in fact the case, we are looking at a national firearms registry, and the only real purpose for registration is confiscation. It’s plain that the left is looking to completely circumvent Congress and will simply use executive orders and the administrative rule making process to create whatever laws and regulations that they wish, and in this case they were helped out with the help of Republican Senators.
I have said it plenty of times before- Just because the Democrats are your enemy doesn’t make Republicans your friend. Again and again, we see that Republicans only SAY that they are pro Second Amendment during election time, but then sell us down the river once they get our votes. Now they have figured out that the way to stay in power is to do what you are told. All Republicans care about is staying in power, and the writing is on the wall- play music to the tune dictated by the Left, or they will make sure you are gone. So Republicans are selling us out.
Things are going to get a lot worse before they get even worse. The year 2024 is going to be a cast iron bitch.
Make up your own mind as to how you react to a Republican congressman saying that other Republicans are terrorists because they won’t install McCarthy as speaker.
If you don’t want to get into the Octagon and get punched in the face and don’t get into the Octagon, that’s how I feel about it. I mean, this is because there’s no good faith here. The good faith has been lost. We keep talking about good faith. And then they want to play victim. No. No. So now I’m not going to apologize for harsh language. You guys know me. That’s how I am. I speak boldly. You know, and this is this is. This is terrorism tactics.
My opinion on the voting for Speaker of the House? Don’t keep voting for the same RINO assholes that have been selling us out for years and expect to get anything different. I’m sick and tired of voting for candidates who promise to protect gun rights and support Conservatives, only to watch them vote to go along with Democrats and increase their own power.
Of course sellouts Mark Levin and Sean Hannity are pissed that the party doesn’t come first because the important business of the people isn’t getting done. I call bullshit. What business of the people is getting ignored? Do these RINOs really think that they are going to impeach Biden? If they do, do they really think it will get past the Senate? What is it that you expect to accomplish, other than cutting more deals with the Democrats?
I don’t give a hairy rat’s ass if you never select a Speaker of the House, because until you do, the House won’t be able to do anything else. That’s fine by me, because the best that Americans can hope for at this point is gridlock.
Those 20 Republicans don’t have to pack it in, Hannity, you fucking sellout. The Republican party is now faced with a choice- you can either acknowledge the freedom loving wing of your party and give them a seat at the table, or you can show your true, power seeking RINO colors and cut a deal with Democrats. At least then we will know that you only pay lip service to conservative principles. How many of those 200 Republicans were OK with Trump being impeached? How many of them stood up and called the rigged election of 2020 for what it was? Not you, you pussy.
According to the NY medical examiner, Ivana Trump died from trauma to the chest. They say it was an accident. She was found at the foot of the stairs in her New York residence. No other details are available.
Being a former President’s EX-wife, Ivana is not under Secret Service protection.
Democrats hate Donald Trump and have been calling for the killing of Republicans.
