I don’t know if there’s something in the water, but suddenly, we have a whole crop of Republicans showing some backbone, standing up and fighting back against the relentless unfair attacks from the left. And man, is it refreshing! A few cases in point:
* Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake was asked to respond to a threat that the NFL would pull the Super Bowl out of Arizona if she won. Her response to arrogant billionaire team owners who think they can dictate the politics of states that build them stadiums and let them make millions there was the equivalent of intercepting their ball and spiking it in their faces.
Lake said she works for the people of Arizona, she doesn’t take marching orders from the NFL:
“Do you want to tell me that a bunch of football teams owned by billionaires are okay with fentanyl pouring across our border at a record level, killing our young people? The number one killer right now is fentanyl. 18 to 45. It’s killing a generation of people. If the NFL is okay with that, then they gotta do some soul-searching. I don’t think the NFL is that stupid. I really don’t.” And “if they want to play chicken over the 2023 Super Bowl, I promise you I win that game.”
The horrified leftists at MSNBC said her answer should give Arizonans “nightmares,” which is the surest sign yet that they should definitely elect her.
* Monday night, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and challenger Charlie Crist had their first and only debate, and it was such a beatdown by DeSantis that if it had been a boxing match the referee would’ve stopped it in the second round. Here’s a write-up by Bonchie at Redstate.com.
DeSantis also told a powerful story about his opposition to abortion, which is recounted here:
I hope you’ll read it all. But I’ll just quote one line to give you a taste. Crist repeatedly tried to suggest that DeSantis would quit to run for President. DeSantis replied, “I know Charlie wants to talk about 2024 and Joe Biden, but let me be clear: the only worn-out old donkey I want to put out to pasture is Charlie Crist.” Yow, that’s gonna leave a scar!
* Sen.Ted Cruz went on “The View,” and even Whoopi Goldberg ordered a foul-mouthed leftist (are there any other kind?) in the audience to shut up and let him talk. And he did, creating one of the most entertaining episodes of “The View” in years, not that that’s saying much.
Cruz schooled the ladies on what a “trainwreck” the Biden economy is for working Americans they never meet, how much better things were under Trump, and how it’s “fundamentally wrong” for Biden’s DOJ to be treating parents as “domestic terrorists.” He called out their hypocrisy on “election deniers” by listing some of the prominent Democrats, from Hillary to Stacey Abrams, who refuse to accept their election losses. Also for fixating on the January 6th riot while ignoring months of far more destructive and violent riots by leftists like Antifa and BLM.
By the time Cruz was done, Whoopi was feigning ignorance of his points ("I don't know what an Antifa riot is") and Ana Navarro was reduced to asking him to lower his voice, since making Republicans shut up is the only effective response the left has to their arguments.
* Even rank-and-file Republicans are sick of being quiet and taking it. An MSNBC reporter interviewed a group of Pittsburgh-area Trump supporters about January 6th, and instead of being intimidated by her condescending questions, they kept repeatedly correcting her misstatements of fact, proving that they knew more about the subject than she did.
I don’t know about you, but I’m liking this new breed of Republicans who don’t roll over and play dead, even though that’s what makes both the Democrats and the establishment Republicans in DC so terrified of them.

Now they are fighting back. Where were they in 2020 when Trump was left alone?

About Miss Lake vs. the NFL
I read all the tweets and I can see all the undereducated people who only have one comment: about Trump. They NEVER have anything to say that includes evidence. Their parents should make their children repay the cost of their Philosophy/Art degrees. Lake will win. Hope the nut jobs then move out of Arizona to California so they can get more drugs.

I can't believe I have been so blind! I was having breakfast with a relative. A person handed each of us at the table a million dollar bill with his face on it. I mentioned I have one at home with Trumps face on it and the fight began. Normally I would have stayed quiet , but not this time. I got back at her. I think we hit every point, abortion, politics, religion, the economy. I thought she was going to hit me! Her husband left. I have felt so bad about myself since then and apologized immediately (for defending my beliefs) and got no apology from her. But now I see maybe I really was only fed up with having it shoved down my throat time after time. It wasn't her first time to explode at the mention of his name no matter how innocent. It is time to stand up! Time to take our voice and our choice back! When I said abortion is wrong and it says so in the Bible she said the Bible doesn't say a word about abortion! I said though shalt not kill and she called me ridiculous! Wow. We have a humongous battle on our hands and can't keep quiet any longer!

Its certainly refreshing to see Republicans standing up to fascism. We need to save future generations from corruption. There's really no time left to contemplate which side to be on. Either you want American freedom or you want to be controlled by regimes like China & Russia.

It is refreshing to see these Republicans punching back hard against the Left and its warped and malignant ideology. If only they would be brave enough to brand it for what it really is: evil.
Oh, and tell us what the Republican party and its platform stand for, instead of just ranting about the misery the Democrats have plunged us into. The misery they have caused with massive inflation, increased debt, and the loss of trillions in our IRA and 401K accounts is self-evident to all except the most delusional and insane, yet what is the message Republicans are running on that gives us confidence they will turn it all around if they assume office?
We know what Republicans stand against, but few are brave enough to tell us what they will stand for and fight for.

Republicans are finally fighting back because the left has gone way past the point of absurdity and crassness. So obvious that we the people can’t help but finally notice that we’ve let them go so far left that they have put old senile Joe and cackling Kamala and their (no longer secret handlers) aka puppeteers in our White House.

I pray the Republicans stay the course and stand strong to put the Dems out of their misery!! They need to speak out and stand out and those who don’t need to go!! Enough with these woke idiots. This nation needs God!! We need to get back to the basics. Loving and helping one another! Strong family units. Praying for deliverance for this United States of America. You notice our Nations title is “United”let’s unite together for our Country and the Freedom we love!!

I'm very thankful Republicans are fighting back. Otherwise, what good are they. I always was impressed by Kevin McCarthy, but I'm beginning to wonder. Is he going to be another Mitt Romney? I've read that Republicans hold back because they don't want to be called Racist. Being called Racist by the left should be considered a badge of honor, it means that left has nothing else and is hurling that last bit of nonsense they can manage. Have courage, Republicans, our country depends on i t.
