Ohio Victory

I’ve written before about how activist judges keep striking down Republican-drawn Congressional districts while allowing Democrat-gerrymandered districts to stand, making it harder for the Republicans to win back the House. But occasionally, a victory can be snatched from a defeat. That just happened in Ohio.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/03/18/pain-and-loathing-commence-after-surprise-ohio-redistricting-decision-n537764

Democrats were celebrating the state Supreme Court striking down the Republican-drawn Congressional map, but then they discovered that the Court issued the ruling as a final judgement. That means if the Republicans draw up a replacement map, opponents can’t run crying back to the Supreme Court. They have to file a whole new lawsuit, which couldn’t possibly make it all the way to the Supreme Court before the November elections.

This means that Democrats will suffer the unspeakable tragedy of having to run in districts drawn by the elected representatives of the people rather than unelected judges. How can they possibly defend “democracy” under conditions like that?!


Set the media predictions aside, Biden is unpopular

We’ve been hearing predictions from DNC PR media outlets for a while now that President Biden’s State of the Union Address was going to give him a big bounce and raise his basement-level approval ratings. Then we heard that the “rally ‘round the President” effect of the Russian-Ukrainian war would boost his approval. But it now seems official that he didn’t even get a dead cat bounce from either.

The new Rasmussen poll finds Biden at an all-time low approval rating of 38%. Sixty percent disapprove, and 50% “strongly disapprove.” Those aren’t the kind of numbers that tend to bounce back. They’re more like a deflated soccer ball. With a brick inside.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/washington-secrets/worst-yet-60-disapprove-50-strongly-of-biden

Overall, the latest Real Clear Politics average of polls shows Biden at 41.5% approval, 53.5% disapproval.

That second linked story also includes a number of reminders of media outlets that assured us the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation and buried it to keep voters from knowing about it. Personally, I think that every story from now on should include a list like that, until the people responsible quit their jobs, don sackcloth and ashes, whip themselves, and beg the public’s forgiveness.


Excellent Article

Excellent article by Sister Toldjah at Redstate.com, about how the transgender encroachment on women’s sports is destroying a century’s worth of hard-won women’s rights.

https://redstate.com/sister-toldjah/2022/03/18/the-most-important-thing-to-remember-in-the-lia-thomas-debate-n537772

It’s now led to the same situation that early suffragettes fought to overcome: men telling women that their views are wrong and irrelevant, and they need to sit down and shut up. Only now, it’s LGBTQ activists saying that to feminists who dare to speak up against men taking over women’s sports and private spaces. It’s also the most glaring example yet of something leftists claim is a cardinal sin: cultural appropriation.


Big scare over the weekend

It was announced that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was hospitalized with flu-like symptoms.

https://www.westernjournal.com/justice-clarence-thomas-admitted-hospital/

Fortunately, it wasn’t COVID. He was diagnosed with an infection, treated with antibiotics, and is already feeling better. He expects to be released in a day or two, and will participate in the Court via briefs, transcripts and audio of oral arguments.

Naturally, the news that such a prominent defender of the Constitution had been hospitalized sparked a frenzy of hatred and death wishes among tolerant leftists on social media. They’d probably want me to quote them, but I prefer to use the antibiotic of ignoring them to fight their infection of our public discourse.


Hunter Biden Story Update

We’re working on a deeper dig into the latest about Hunter Biden’s laptop, but until then, here’s a round-up of the New York Post’s great commentary and follow-up on the New York Times FINALLY admitting, a year-and-a-half too late, that the Post's scoop about the laptop and the incriminating information on it was true and not “Russian disinformation.”

First, the Post editors’ op-ed blasting their dishonest, biased, Democrat campaign mouthpiece competitor, the Times:

https://nypost.com/2022/03/17/the-times-finally-admits-hunter-bidens-laptop-is-real/

Columnist Michael Goodwin on how the Times and other Big Media and Big Tech companies continue to try to hide their successful efforts to tilt the 2020 election by preventing voters from knowing the truth about Biden family corruption:

https://nypost.com/2022/03/17/the-new-york-times-hates-to-say-the-post-told-you-so/

Kyle Smith has more on the actual “collusion to rig an election” that the Times eagerly took part in:

https://nypost.com/2022/03/18/how-big-tech-media-and-dems-killed-the-hunter-biden-story/

White House press secretary Jen Psaki keeps spinning and deflecting to keep from answering questions about Hunter Biden and his influence peddling deals.

https://nypost.com/2022/03/18/jen-psaki-brushes-off-bidens-conflicts-of-interest/

Finally, today’s MUST-READ: The New York Post’s front page story about the 51 alleged “intelligence experts” who signed a letter suggesting that the laptop story was Russian disinformation. This was used as an excuse by the media to ignore the story and by social media giants like Twitter to censor any mention of it and to suspend accounts of people who dared to share it.

https://nypost.com/2022/03/18/intelligence-experts-refuse-to-apologize-for-smearing-hunter-biden-story/

The Post attempted to contact all 51 of these lying spies to see if they wanted to apologize for their false claim misleading the voters. Most ignored their ringing shoe phones and didn’t respond.

Of the handful who did, none apologized. All lamely pointed to some weasel words in the 5th paragraph of the letter that admitted they didn’t know if the emails were genuine or not, but that it “has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” If they were honest (and we’re getting deep into hypotheticals here), they would have said they “didn’t know” and let it go at that. The claim that it might be Russian disinformation was all the media outlets needed, and the signers never issued a clarification when that was treated as solid fact.

It should be pointed out that one of the chief instigators of this letter, and one of the few who responded to defend it, was former DNI director and professional liar James Clapper. I don’t use that term “professional liar” lightly or as a pejorative, but as an accurate title. Clapper is now a CNN pundit (a pretty good indication all by itself), he has a history of perjuring himself before Congress…

https://jonathanturley.org/2013/07/03/perjury-by-permission-clapper-apologizes-for-false-testimony-and-the-congress-remains-silent/

…And he spent years on CNN calling Trump a “Russian asset” as he pushed the “collusion hoax” drummed up by Hillary Clinton and her campaign.

These days, he and his CNN cohorts spend a lot of their time pushing the idea that a few unarmed nuts commandeering Nancy Pelosi’s podium for 10 minutes was a serious attempt at “insurrection.” I would argue that if Clapper and his fellow “intelligence experts” and “reputable journalists” want to see true insurrectionists who misused their positions of power to try to undermine and overthrow the duly elected President of the United States, they might try looking into the nearest mirror.


Crazy enough to make my newsletter

I don’t quote every childish thing that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweets to her enraptured fans because there are only 24 hours in a day, but this one was especially weird and noteworthy. A follower asked, "How do you respond when people accuse you of being a 'socialist'?" The answer to that, of course, is that she is a socialist. She calls herself a “Democratic socialist,” which is a distinction without a difference.

But for some reason, she decided to whisper conspiratorially into the camera, "Let me tell you a secret. Most people don't really know what capitalism is. Most people don't even know what socialism is. But most people are not capitalists, because they don't have capitalist money. They're not billionaires."

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/landonmion/2022/03/19/let-me-tell-you-a-secret-aoc-whispers-to-her-followers-that-most-people-dont-understand-what-capitalism-is-n2604764

If she learned this in her Boston University economics class, she should demand a refund of her capitalist parents' tuition money. Capitalism isn’t the money billionaires have. It’s the economic system that allows people who start with nothing to become millionaires and billionaires.

She went on, "The label doesn't matter as much as talking about policies. That's easier to understand. Do you think people should die because they can't afford insulin? Do you think that fossil fuel CEOs should decide whether the planet gets set on fire? Me neither."

For the record, I know quite a few capitalists, and none of them think people should die for lack of insulin or that anyone should set the planet on fire. But after looking at her Twitter feed, you might want to set your phone on fire.

You can see why I don’t bother to talk about this subject much, but that one was crazy enough to make the news, and it’s a good lead in to this introduction to her Republican challenger, Tina Fortes.

https://bigleaguepolitics.com/aoc-challenger-tina-fortes-new-ad-has-aoc-and-her-squad-pals-shaking-in-their-boots/

She’s a small businesswoman who supports the police, border enforcement and school choice. She recently said, “AOC and her allies have killed New Yorkers with their bail reform and soft-on-crime policies, imprisoned us in our homes with lockdowns, ruined small businesses with shutdowns, violated our rights with mandates, and tortured children with masks for political science, not medical science. Enough is enough. New Yorkers have suffered because these liberals acted like dictators drunk on power. They must be stopped and it starts with firing AOC.”

She even had a better answer than AOC to the question of why people call AOC a socialist: “AOC is a communist sympathizer. She’s the darling of the Democratic Socialists of America – a Marxist organization that glorified Cuba’s Castro regime and Venezuela’s Maduro regime.”

You’ve also gotta love her campaign slogan: “Make AOC Bartend Again.”

Sadly, AOC “represents” a New York district that’s so blue that Nancy Pelosi was likely referring to it when she said that in some New York races, a glass of water with a (D) after its name could win. But who knows? Maybe this is the year when even in districts like that, a Republican could have a chance. Especially when the Democrat glass of water is half-empty and obviously cracked.


So Good

Best idea for a GOP voter registration drive ever: Sign up people to vote at gas stations.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/chris-queen/2022/03/19/rnc-launches-voter-registration-drives-at-gas-stations-for-americans-who-are-fed-up-with-high-prices-n1567916

Needless to say, this is one attempt to increase voter registration that leftists on social media are really ticked off about. Why do they hate democracy?

    People have to make adjustments to the biden attack of the family and Senior budgets. I can only hope the highly educated suburban mom did not take the same economics classes AOC took while being indoctrinated in college. If the highly educated moms can survive this Administration's war on the family and Seniors budget I am hopeful common sense will take over and change the belief of Democrats favoring family and American value as a way of life. Moms and Dads want a great life for their children and for themselves, today the picture I am seeing is just the beginning of more hardships to come for the family structure. I am hopeful an evaluation of the current condition this country is in by the Moms Dads and Seniors and modify their view of the Democratic Party. As a Grandparent I now can only hope for these children to live a life with all the Freedoms of the Constitution has to offer, this is the only country that offers it, there is no place to go when the country is dominated by Democrats.

    Re: The situation about men who identify as women being involved in women's sports. I was watching the local news last night as they gave the scores of the UTC and UTK basketball scores for both the men and women teams. The thought went through my head: what if all the "women" on the women's team were actually men who identify as women? What purpose would there be to having a women's team? Could it happen that the women's team could actually be made up of men who could not make the men's team? I'm very concerned for the children of this country.

    The Obama biden disaster pales as the biden harris administration shows perfectly that the training biden got from from Obama for 8 years how to destroy a country in14 months using the might of the Oval Office has been successful with a high degree of efficiency. With the messenger of the MSM, FB, CDC, Tech companies, Unions, DA's DOJ, Homeland Security, our FBI the Secretary of State maybe one gets the picture all of these were used to destroy a Presidency and the value of a country's foundation this febble minded biden could not really do all of this by himself all this nitwit had to do is sign his name to make the corrosion of the United States happen. Felonies committed on our streets ,Hatred is focused in the schools, the erosion of the dollar, open borders to allow more Felons to set up cells thruout the country is going to be a major problem when a new administration takes over it will take an entire decade to clean the mess biden and harris has made in just 14 months of their occupancy of the Oval Office the Dem. is a horrible organization if one wants Freedoms as its basic structure.

    Does the congress control whether the Iran deal can be approved what is its role or is this a biden controlled deal. Why are democrats so eager to support international terrorists groups and national terrorists groups with Americans taxpayers money. I for one do not fund or want to enhance terrorists groups why do democrats continue to fund felons to kill destroy and harm people all over the world

    In Re Supreme Court of the State of Ohio Justices. The justices are both republicans and democrats. They are ALL ELECTED by the voters, not appointed, as is required by the state constitution. It's not a knockdown drag out partisan election fight, as the judiciary is supposed to be Cool, quiet folk. I suspect the democrats & republican justices decided in the back room otherwise called "chambers" that they had had enough. They are supposed to be impartial, so they impartially sent it back to the 2 sets of crying jerks (who had repeatedly & with intent made a mess so the primaries couldn't be held on time), secure in the knowledge that the only people who can draw impartial lines for a political districts are armed with darts or spray guns & blindfolded. They wouldn't be good lines either & the victims of them would be cussing a blue streak (again) at the drawers. The Dems & Reps could have cut a half way sane deal. They didn't. They deserve the mud being thrown at them from all directions. Do I hear a chorus from the song in "Fiorello" about the bum that won?

    Mike As the world views Putin as this war criminal why is an arrest warrant out for him? Who is responsible for issuing a warrant . If the charges are true why hasn't an army of policemen gone after Putin. Big mouth biden calls Putin a war criminal while he watches putin slaughter men women children old people dogs cats destroy cities hospitals child care centers and delays sending defense equipment to Ukraine. Millions of dollars have passed from Ukraine to the bidens and it got a President impeached. Biden stranded Americans in Afghanistan and now he has abandoned Ukraine. Double crossing Biden another trait he has, a vulture waiting for the end to pick what is left of Ukraine and everything he touches. The equipment in Afghanistan could have been used in Ukraine if biden only had a brain.
