    “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”

    Isaiah 6:8 KJV

    2. Facing Disaster in the Midterms, Democrats begin to admit the truth:

    The government is finally starting to admit the truth about things that got conservatives banned from social media as conspiracy theorists for saying a year ago. The latest example: CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky admitted that about 75% of deaths attributed to COVID happened to people who had at least four comorbidities, “so really, these are people who were unwell to begin with.”

    This is part of the reason why I personally decided to get vaccinated: I’m particularly susceptible to respiratory diseases like COVID. So this is hardly big news. We’ve known for a long time that COVID has a very high survival rate for those who aren’t over 65 with other underlying problems such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. It’s why many people questioned the wisdom of shutting down all of society instead of just sequestering those who were most at risk.

    So why are we all-of-a-sudden having health “authorities” admit the truth of things that were blasted as heresy not so long ago? The article at the link argues that it’s because the Democrats know they’re facing disaster in the midterm elections, and voters blame them for inflicting so much damage in the name of stopping the virus when it obviously isn't working. So now they’re trying to back away from it as quickly as possible.

    Nice try, but I doubt that anyone will forget the lockdowns, school closures and other ironfisted measures by November, any more than they’ll forget how useless they were. Personally, I think that the most damaging admission of all is the tacit admission that the statements and decisions of health officials are influenced in any way by politics.

    3. Inflation Update:

    How badly is President Biden doing at handling inflation? So badly that even the Washington Post editorial board panned him for it, which is kind of like being bitten by your own dog.

    While they did criticize Biden for trying to pin shortages and rising prices on industries gouging customers, they still seem to think, as liberals always do, that this is primarily a “messaging” problem. If only he could find the magic words to explain the problem more clearly, then everything would be fine.

    It might help his approval rating, but that’s not America’s problem, that’s his problem. Our problem is that people can’t get the goods they need or afford them if they could find them. And that’s not solved by words, it’s solved by putting people to work to SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

    For all of Biden’s constant bad-mouthing of his predecessor, if Trump were President now, and people were suffering because goods weren’t being unloaded and delivered to stores, or gas prices were skyrocketing due to tight supplies, do you seriously think he would’ve sat around for a solid year doing basically nothing?

    Would Trump have appointed an inexperienced, unqualified Transportation Secretary who took off for two months of parental leave in the middle of a supply chain crisis? Or would he have reversed Biden’s anti-energy policies, called in the best people from private industry, and launched a massive campaign to get more trucks and truckers on the road and goods moving again?

    Memo to WaPo: we know that liberals are good at running their mouths. We don’t need pretty words to help us understand that we’re up the creek, we need some evidence that they’re capable of grabbing a paddle and actually doing something to help.

    4. More Bad Polling News for Democrats:

    A new A.P./NORC poll asked Americans to name their top five concerns that they want the government to address. The #1 concern, mentioned by 68% of respondents, was the economy. Another 24% mentioned household finances/the cost of living, up from 12% last year. Inflation as a concern leapt from less than 1% last year to 14%.

    And concern about the only issue where the Democrats had a strong advantage, handling the pandemic, dropped from 53% to 37%. Although the way they’ve been handling it since they’ve actually been in charge of it, you’d think they would want Americans to stop paying attention to that issue.

    5. Must-Read:

    Megan Fox of PJ Media details the many eerie similarities between insane religious cults and hysterical COVID fear fanatics who insist that everyone live the way they say and cut people out of their lives who don’t buy into it. She calls them the “Branch Covidians.”

    If you think this is overstated, read her article. And note the actual photo of their savior, Dr. Fauci’s, face appearing in a donut.

    6. Bad day for Biden, great day for Herschel Walker!

    This morning’s commentary on Biden’s scheduled “voting rights” speech in Georgia today ended with a reference to Lucy pulling away the football. So it seems fitting that an update to the story has a football theme.

    The atmosphere in Georgia turned even more unwelcoming for Biden after Monday night’s 33-18 win by the Georgia Bulldogs over Alabama in the College Football Playoff. That’s because Herschel Walker, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Georgia, is leading the celebration. Walker was star running back on the last Georgia team to win the national championship –- 41 years ago. Congratulations, DAWGS!

    Needless to say, Georgians are pumped over this tremendous win. The focus today was not on Biden –- whose presence to lecture us about the need to blow up the filibuster to pass what we affectionately call the “Legalize Election Fraud Act” was apparently so toxic that even Stacey Abrams didn’t show up –- but on the former Georgia running back, Dallas Cowboy star player, and now Republican candidate for Senate.

    Pundits are wondering who Biden’s speech was even for. Leftist voting rights groups are so frustrated and (of course) furious with what they perceive as “inaction” on Biden's part that even THEY tuned it out.

    But conservatives will be busy high-fiving over last night’s game and talking up Herschel Walker. Winning!

    Biden is advocating for what he calls a filibuster “carve-out” specifically for their election “reform” (ha) bill. Yes, they are that desperate to get it passed. But this is just a trick that will, in practice, end the filibuster. There is no such thing as a “narrow exception” to the filibuster rule. If you’d like an in-depth analysis of why it won’t work, National Review has a premium article by Charles C. W. Cook that explains it well. And we’ll cover it more in detail later.

      What do we call people who are so disparate to win at any cost? Democrats and self-loathing idiots who can't find their way out of a paper bag. Again, Democrats. They are so disparate to win, they cheat, steal, commit criminal behavior, and corruption is their go-to game plan, and aren't worth our time to worry about them. This type of political belief, is never going to win by integrity and fair means. They don't know the meaning of integrity and trustworthiness. Just like everything, there has to be an opposite effect to a positive action. Conservative vs. Liberal, good vs. bad, integrity vs. corrupted, truth vs. lies, God vs. Satan.

      Am not surprised at the push by the Marxists. They have to undermine all Democratic institutions so they can centralize power in their oligarchy and send us " back to Egypt". Already the military is being dismembered.

      Dems Facing the Truth: Even though they are beginning to admit that they lied to us about COVID deaths and the correlation with comorbidities, they still have not allowed American citizens to use Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine nor have they recommended the supplements like D3, zinc, etc. that have helped those who have been able to get it. If I follow the money, it goes right back to the pockets of Big Pharma, FDA, CDC and the politicians that support them. It's just heartbreaking that they care so little about the health and lives of our citizens.

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.


    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
