Biden’s hyper-partisan leftist OMB nominee

Featured image Joe Biden has selected Neera Tanden to head the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). She is the president of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a leftist think tank. Her selection was immediately touted by the mainstream media because she will be the first “woman of color” to lead the OMB. Tanden’s parents came from India. Thus, although she is deemed “of color” for purposes of having her nomination »

Georgia on not enough minds

Featured image RealClearPolitics has posted Matt Towery’s knowledgeable take on the Georgia Senate runoffs. Towery’s column is “A realistic take on Georgia’s Senate runoffs.” Towery’s “realistic take” injects a sobering dose of reality from a variety of perspectives into our view of the the races. I hope President Trump can find his way down there to do his thing for Senators Perdue and Loeffler and that Republicans can otherwise find their way »

Warnock’s greatest hits

Featured image The Free Beacon’s Elizabeth Matamoros draws attention to the video by Nikki Haley (via her Stand For America PAC) putting the knock on Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock. The video gives us the Reader’s Digest version of Warnock’s greatest hits in 90 seconds (below). Haley tweeted it out yesterday afternoon. Point 1 highlights Warnock’s defense of Jeremiah Wright as “a preacher and a prophet.” Does the context support the »

Will Gun Owners Swing Georgia Senate Races to GOP?

Featured image Democrats are pouring into Georgia from across the country, trying to wrest control of the Senate away from Republicans. Some are talking about establishing fake residence so they can vote, others are going door to door, manning phone banks and so on. But one issue they probably won’t talk about much is gun control. With good reason. The Washington Free Beacon calculates that Joe Biden’s gun proposals would amount to »

Warnock’s Wright stuff (2)

Featured image I’ve been saying for a while now that Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock revives the spirit of Jeremiah Wright and reveals the true spirit of the Democratic Party. Warnock is the perfectest herald of the spirit. The Washington Free Beacon has assigned reporter Alana Goodman to the Warnock beat in advance of the Georgia Senate runoff in January. From her most recent discovery in the Warnock archives we can »

Warnock Hates the Military [with comment by Paul]

Featured image The Democrats’ hopes of regaining control of the Senate rest on the “Reverend” Raphael Warnock. Warnock is a hard-core leftist and bigot in the Jeremiah Wright mold, as Paul has shown in several posts. Today another Warnock video came to light, this one perhaps the most devastating of all to his candidacy. In 2011, Warnock said in a sermon that “nobody can serve God and the military.” Here is the »

Warnock’s Wright stuff

Featured image The Reverend Raphael Warnock is working his Ossoff to revive memories of Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Wright is a toxic figure who served as an omen of the future of the Democratic Party. Back in 2008, Wright proved so toxic that Obama implausibly sought to distance himself from Wright with Obama’s ridiculous speech on race, another sign of things to come. As a Senate candidate, Warnock needs to distance himself from »

Rudy Boschwitz at 90

Featured image Former Minnesota Rep. Vin Weber helped put together a 90th birthday tribute to former Minnesota Senator Rudy Boschwitz via Zoom yesterday afternoon. Rudy turned 90 on November 7. I was grateful to be on the invitation list for the Zoom celebration. Getting to know Rudy over the past 25 years has been a personal highlight. He is an extraordinary man and walking testimony to the power of the American dream. »

Raphael Warnock, God’s gift to the GOP

Featured image If you’re a Democrat and you’re not unhinged, the best reason to support Reverend Raphael Warnock for the Senate — maybe the only reason — is to help Democrats regain control of that body. There’s little else to recommend electing the wild-eyed radical race hustler. But the Reverend isn’t having it. He insists that his race against Sen. Kelly Loeffler isn’t about control of the Senate. Instead, it’s “about the »

Warnock an inartful dodger

Featured image The George Senate runoff elections are critical to our future. Jeremiah Wright style leftist Raphael Warnock is running against Kelly Loeffler. Pajama Boy Jon Ossoff is running against David Perdue. Only Loeffler and Perdue stand in the gap against permanent one-party rule. Chuck Schumer has already explained, “First we take Georgia, then we change America.” Warnock and Ossoff are the keys. As the terrorist in Leonard Cohen’s song puts it, »

A warning on Georgia revisited

Featured image Last night, I cited an analysis by Steve Cortes that concluded there were 95,000 “Biden only” ballots in Georgia and virtually no “Trump only ballots” in the state. Cortes cited these numbers as suggesting voter fraud. I cited them as a warning that in the crucial Senate runoff races, the “Biden only” ballots might become new votes for Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. But Dan McLaughlin disputes Cortes’ claim that »

Meet Raphael Warnock [UPDATED]

Featured image The Reverend Raphael Warnock, 2020 Democratic candidate for Senate from Georgia, goes off on a false and slanderous anti-Israel tirade in a 2018 sermon (video clip below, full video here). He accused Israel of shooting Palestinian like “birds of prey,” compared violent Palestinian riots to peaceful African-American civil rights protests, and claimed that Palestinians are “struggling for water and for their lives.” As Uri Pilichowski states in a comment on »

A warning on Georgia [UPDATED]

Featured image In this column, Steve Cortes identified four statistical anomalies associated with last week’s presidential vote. Any one of them, he argued, “would cast intense doubt upon election results.” Put all four together, and “the result is a seemingly impossible statistical perfect storm.” Considering the importance of the Georgia runoff elections, I was struck by this passage in Cortes’ article: In the Peach State, President Trump’s vote total almost exactly tracked »

The Manchin manifestation

Featured image Democratic West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin seeks to help his partisan colleagues take the majority via the pending Georgia runoff elections. He appeared on FOX News Special Report last night to announce that he would not support the realization of Chuck Schumer pre-election vows to pack the Supreme Court and kill the Senate’s legislative filibuster. His purpose was to pacify voters with moderate and conservative leanings in Georgia. He sought »

The supremacy of Georgia

Featured image At the moment it appears that approximately everything hangs on the outcome of the two Georgia Senate seats that are headed for runoff. Take it from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer himself (video below). We can thank him for spelling it out for us. He’s the Senate Majority Leader wannabe. Good Lord, don’t let it be. Schumer sounds like the terrorist in Leonard Cohen’s song: “First we take Manhattan, then »

Correction on Biden’s judicial nominees

Featured image Last week, I wrote a post about confirming (or not) Joe Biden’s judicial nominees. My post assumed that if the GOP retains control of the Senate, Lindsey Graham will be chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The assumption is incorrect. If the GOP retains control, Chuck Grassley will be the Judiciary Committee chairman. Grassley intends to exercise his “bumping rights” to regain the gavel. Graham has a long record of »

Georgia Update

Featured image My source for all things Georgia politics, a Republican insider, filed this report today: Georgia is now the political center of the universe. Trump’s team is here looking into voter irregularities and reports of fraud. Secretary of State Raffensperger announced today that there was a machine issue from the Friday count in Fulton County that they are now looking into. Former Governor/AG Secretary Sonny Perdue [not to be confused with »
