Here’s why I always warn people not to listen to polls taken a year in advance.

A year ago, the media were slamming Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for allegedly turning Florida into a killing field with his reluctance to shut down the whole state over COVID-19. Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as being hailed as a genius, handed an inexplicable Emmy Award, and writing a self-congratulatory book. Polls reflected this, with DeSantis dropping 11 points to 53%, while Cuomo skyrocketed to 72% approval.

One year later, Cuomo’s devastating bad decisions are finally being uncovered and he’s fighting efforts to impeach and remove him. Meanwhile, Florida is a COVID success story and DeSantis is at 55% approval, including 22% of Democrats, and holds double-digit leads over all his reelection challengers.

Then again, DeSantis’ race isn’t until next fall. I wish him well, but remind him: yesterday’s polls are like yesterday’s newspapers; only good for bird cage liner.

House Democrats have been thundering for months about how they want serious repercussions for their House colleagues over the January 6th violence in the Capitol. Well, they might get their wish:

The Daily Caller reports that a group of House Republicans has filed a formal complaint with the House Ethics Committee against more than two dozen Democrats who made unsubstantiated accusations that Republican members led suspicious groups on “reconnaissance” tours in preparation for the riot. The complaint mentions a letter from New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill and 33 other Democrats to the Capitol Police, requesting an investigation of these allegations. The Democrats have never been able to provide any evidence to back up the claims, and the Capitol Police never responded to them.

I know what you’re thinking: asking a “House Ethics Committee” that’s run by Democrats to investigate an ethics complaint against Democrats will result in more layers of hilarious irony that you’d find in a rerun of “Seinfeld.” But at least the Democrats are finally getting what they asked for.

Leftist fake news

May 15, 2021

Remember Florida state data technician Rebecca Jones? She was given a friendly forum on numerous occasions on CNN and MSNBC because she was making accusations that she was fired for exposing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ plot to manipulate the state’s coronavirus numbers to make them look better than they were. She was treated as a heroic whistleblower and a martyr to a corrupt Republican regime.The liberal outlets loved her because she allowed them to negatively compare DeSantis to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Problem: Cuomo actually did what she accused DeSantis of, and DeSantis did not.

Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review Online dug deep into this story, and he declared that Jones is not a whistleblower, a data analyst or an epidemiologist: she’s a fabulist with a history of making wild, retaliatory false claims. These include calling police who came to her home to seize computers “Gestapo” sent by DeSantis, and claiming they pointed guns at her and her children. Bodycam video shows that nobody pointed any guns at anyone.

Jones was heavily promoted by Democrats and liberal media outlets, which helped her raise a large amount of money through various GoFundMe accounts, but Cooke reports that her claims were all a giant pile of lies. She responded that Cooke’s investigative piece on her is a “smear campaign,” but she didn’t elaborate on what he might have gotten wrong. If you’d like to read more, click the link.

Or you could just go on believing what CNN and MSNBC told you about her because after all, only people who watch conservative news sites believe disinformation.

Israel Update

May 15, 2021

Here’s an update on the latest escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas and Palestinian militants. Israel has begun a ground operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, but it’s reportedly only tanks and artillery. Israel says no ground troops have entered Gaza, but 9,000 reservists have been called up and at least three brigades have massed on the border.

Since Hamas began firing missiles into Israel, the Iron Dome defense has blocked about 90% of the missiles, but even so, the rockets have killed one Israeli soldier and six civilians, including one child. Gaza reports at least 109 Palestinians killed, including 28 children, but Israel says many of those may be due to Hamas’ own missiles misfiring.

Also, for those trying to draw equivalencies or say that Israel is the aggressor/oppressor: please note that Hamas is deliberately shooting missiles at unarmed civilians. Israel is targeting known Hamas militant headquarters, which they deliberately place amid civilians to use them as human shields.

Georgia election case

May 15, 2021

While the media have been devoting so much of their energy to ignoring, mocking and suppressing the election audit in Arizona, there’s another legal challenge flying under the radar in Georgia that could flip control of the Senate back to the GOP.

The fallout from President Biden’s first 100 days of insane policies is all hitting at once, from the stock market drop to gas lines to inflation fears to worker shortages to border chaos. But perhaps the most tragic is the flare-up of violence in the Middle East. Trump, who was assailed as a bumbling amateur by the Democrats, presided over the destruction of ISIS, the corralling of Hamas and Iran, and unprecedented peace agreements between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Biden reversed all of Trump’s policies, including lifting sanctions on Iran and sending at least $90 million in US aid to the Palestinians (Trump had blocked US funds going to the Palestinian Authority.)

In announcing this last month, a Biden State Department spokesman declared, “We continue to believe that American support for the Palestinian people, including financial support, it is consistent with our values. It is consistent with our interests. Of course, it is consistent with the interests of the Palestinian people. It’s also consistent with the interests of our partner, Israel, and we’ll have more to say on that going forward.”
