I've had real doubts about Kari Lake, but... this is promising.

karilakestatement.jpg

And this is also promising.

In Arizona last week, Kari Lake won the GOP nomination for governor on a pledge that Arizona will act where the federal government has failed. It was a big victory--Lake netted over 48 percent of the vote to secure the nomination.

"As governor," Lake promised, "I will issue a declaration of invasion, finish President Trump's wall, blow up the cartels' drug tunnels and surveillance drones, and deploy the Arizona National Guard to stop illegals from entering. Arizona is our home and I will do everything in my power to defend our families."

Finish President Donald Trump's wall? Blow up drug tunnels? Deploy the Arizona National Guard? Can a governor really do all that?

She can. Though securing the border is the federal government's responsibility, the Constitution empowers state governments to act when our federal government refuses.

Of course, she has to actually get elected to do anything like this. I sure hope she knows the electorate and is playing to them, and not just playing to me.


As has been pointed out, the media sold the "Inflation Reduction Act" as, well, reducing inflation up until the moment it passed... and then stopped claiming it would reduce inflation at all, and instead sold it as doing other things.

Paul Krugman lists what the Inflation Reduction Act will do. HINT: He's forgotten to mention "reduce inflation."

SPOILER: He didn't actually forget; this is part of the left's coordinated messaging.
They know this won't reduce inflation so now they're trying to pretend the Inflation Reduction Act was never really about Inflation Reduction at all.

Craven liberal Chris Christie sought the David French Vote by immediately declaring that of course this warrant was perfect, just like the FISA warrants were perfect.


The search of Donald Trump's personal safe in an unprecedented federal search at the former president's Florida compound was "fair game," former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said in an interview Tuesday morning.

During his seven-year stint as U.S. attorney for New Jersey, Christie had to make "analogous decisions" to the Monday search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence, he said in an interview with Sirius XM's Julie Mason. The search warrant aims to determine whether the former president mishandled White House records, according to two people familiar with the matter.


"I have concerns this morning about it," Christie, a onetime staunch Trump ally, said. "This is not something you should be doing willy-nilly. This is something that should be backed up by grave concerns."


When he issued similar warrants, Christie explained, he needed to be confident there would be enough evidence to charge the person being investigated. If nothing was found, the search would be "unjust," he said.

We've never used a warrant to raid the home of a politco for a mere document recovery -- despite the example of Hillary Clinton concealing her emails from the government, and then destroying them.

And despite Sandy Berger stuffing top secret documents into his socks and stealing them from the confidential archives of the United States.

These matters were handled without raids.

Don't worry, lefties and NeverTrumpers (but I repeat myself): In the future, we'll be availing ourselves of this power to strong-arm our political enemies that you've now mainstreamed.

If you don't have anything to hide -- what do you have to fear from yearly IRS audits and FBI raids?!

@pnjaban

This FBI:
* Pushed Russia collusion hoax
* Spied on law-abiding Americans
* Lied to FISA court
* Ignored Hillary's server escapades
* Ignored Biden Family criminal activity
* Persecutes journalists at Project Veritas
* Treats J6 trespassers like terrorists
* Goes after PTA moms
* Ignores drug crimes at border
* Allows drug cartels to operate freely in the US
... I could go on.

Our FBI has become a total disgrace, and Merrick Garland is so deeply lacking in judgment that he is unfit to serve as AG. Americans deserve better that this shameful crew.

Further escalation: The FBI seized the phone of a Congresman.

We're just taking notes about what we'll be doing in 25 months. Do go on. You're giving us lots of ideas.


Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania says that the FBI has confiscated his cell phone.

Perry, in an exclusive statement, told Fox News on Tuesday that while traveling with his family earlier in the day, he was approached by three FBI agents who handed him a warrant and requested that he turn over his cell phone.

Muh Norms, huh?

Democrats urge Wyoming Democrats to change their partisan affiliation to vote for Liz Cheney.

This is what galls me about AllahPundit's But whyyyyyy?! whining about why the party is ejecting Liz Cheney.

Pretty simple, really, Genius: It's because she has telegraphed that she intends to run as the Democrat against the Republican Harriet Hageman for half a year.

All of the NeverTrumpers continue supporting the Democrat Party. They have supported Democrats, as I keep noting, four four election cycles in a row, supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016, then Democrats for Congress to rebuke Trump in 2018, then Joe Biden, then Democrats for Congress again to rebuke Trump in 2020.

They're preparing to support the Democrats again in 2022... again as a rebuke to "Trumpism."

Trumpism, now, notice -- not Trump. Now they're dropping the mask that this is about Trump; this is about punishing Trump's voters and telling them that they are not permitted to win elections, because they are, yes!, Deplorable, just like the candidate they supported in 2016 said.

And of course they will support the Democrat, whoever it is, in 2024, if Trump runs. Or even if DeSantis is the nominee.

Because this is about the Neocon Establishment Restoration Project. And they'll keep joining the Democrats until we hand the party back over to these sick, wormy liberals.

But AllahPundit and the rest of them keep whining, But whyyyyyy can't you let us be paaaaaart of the paaaaartyyyyyy?

Because you're not part of the party; you're Democrats.

Why don't we let Adam Schiff be part of the party, too? And Pierre Omidyar, and all the rest of the Democrats you take money from?

How many election cycles do you get to support Democrats and still claim "But I'm really a Republican, you know, the moment this 'Trump fever' breaks and we get back to nominating neocon establishment squibs like Jeb Bush and Nikki Haley and Chris Christie" ?

You're out of the party. A party has the right to patrol its own membership.

And you, fucker, are G O N E.

Go to The Bulwark, Allah. They're (almost) open about just being a Democrat front organization now. Not completely open, of course; they are all sneaky lying worms, like yourself. They have to do some lying. They think lying about their intentions and their affiliation makes them "clever."

You'll fit in perfectly!

NeverTrump

Once we purge every single actual conservative from the party, we'll be ready to both re-join and lead the party again as a respectable and reasonable junior partner to the Glorious Democrat Party.

Worth the listen:



Yeah, it's time for this guy to go. He can take Lindsey Graham with him and they can go have a romantic dinner together on the veranda.

And I'm sure they'll claim whatever they find is "incredible." A friend said he expects the Coordinated Messaging deployment of the keywords "TREASURE TROVE" within a week.

I've been saying this since Nov 2020: they expected a Blue Wave to scare off the GOP from Trump. It didn't materialize. Instead, Trump had coattails and nearly pulled the GOP into the majority in the House. So Trump lost, but he and Trumpism weren't repudiated.

BTW, it wasn't just the Dems, but McConnell and other establishment GOP. It's why I think that fucked us over on challenging the shenanigans in GA, and why McConnell suddenly opposed the passage of the stimulus checks, even though he knew it would be passed if the Dems won: he wanted Senate losses to tie around Trump's neck.

I think it was a desperate fishing expedition because their internal polling is telling them that November is going to be horrific. GOP is fired up, independents are turning against the Dems, and the progressive base is furious that more hasn't been pushed through. The former two will vote GOP, while the latter sit out. They were hoping to get something on Trump that can be used to make his endorsements toxic, and at the same time the raid is red meat for the progressive base.

What is wrong with believing that America's founding was exceptional, the constitution is the best way to organize government, free markets not crony capitalism is what drives prosperity, outsourcing everything to China is monumentally stupid, small government is better, real countries police their borders, etc.

117 "Biden FBI’s “all hands on deck raid” raises massive double standard questions"

it is not just a double standard, which would be "they don't raid Hillary but they raid Trump", IF there was evidence of criminal activity in BOTH cases.

But they did not have probable cause for Trump, so they Fabricated it, and got a corrupt magistrate to sign a warrant. This is not selective prosecution, it is criminal fraud against the innocent.

So it is double standard squared ... they fabricate evidence and prosecute against the innocent conservatives, and bury evidence and refuse to prosecute for the guilty Democrats.

-Trump is a bombastic and unserious salesman that demeans the Republican Party
-Trumpism is populism, and they want things to be run by philosopher kings
-Trumpism rejects their economic theories by raising tariffs on Chinese companies and closing the border
-Trumpism is a movement of the people not experts and elites in think tanks, people need to know their place.

Because it was America First. It was National Populism. It was the idea that everyone here needs to be working before anyone else comes in, and maybe you pay a nickel more for that.

That obviously pissed off the "Import the New Electorate" crowd. It also pissed off the "Labor is Too Expensive" crowd.

And Trump had one other flaw. He, even though he lived in that stupid Acela Beltway his entire life, apparently didn't fit in with them.

We've reached the stage of American history where everything we see on the news must first be understood as political theater. In other words, the messaging layer of news now almost always dominates the factual narrative, with the latter often reported so unreliably as to be meaningless anyway. Yesterday's sensational tale of the FBI raiding the Mar-a-Lago home of former president Donald Trump is no different.

As of now, it's impossible to say if Trump's alleged offense was great, small, or in between. But this for sure is a huge story, and its hugeness extends in multiple directions, including the extraordinary political risk inherent in the decision to execute the raid. If it backfires, if underlying this action there isn't a very substantial there there, the Biden administration just took the world's most reputable police force and turned it into the American version of the Tonton Macoute on national television. We may be looking at simultaneously the dumbest and most inadvertently destructive political gambit in the recent history of this country.

What is wrong with believing that America's founding was exceptional, the constitution is the best way to organize government, free markets not crony capitalism is what drives prosperity, outsourcing everything to China is monumentally stupid, small government is better, real countries police their borders, etc.

I don't expect any good answers though and it's frustrating that this isn't hashed out with a real debate.

I used to have these clients, a pair of businessmen who were brothers. One was quiet and industrious and dumb as a stump, and he followed his brother's lead. In many ways, he carried the business on his back. The other was smarter, but a bit of a wildman - he was the one wining and dining and wheeling and dealing with clients, and gambling with them like the Asian he was. He sold their clients in.

They were a good mix, and both of them were *really* good guys. Aside from the whiskey and roulette, they were Christians, and meant it, and lived it.

But if I imagine they were Satanists instead, they were kind of a metaphor for our "two" political parties.

No. Under Ulbricht, Mielke subdued a serious uprising in 1953 by naked force, imprisoned Berliners in their city with an impenetrable earthwork over the next 15 years, and placed spies and mics in practically every structure in the country.

I like Youngkin way better than I thought I would.

He's a good mix of actually getting conservative things done but never popping off like a crank.

DeSantis/Younkin would be fine with me.

310 Some info from an AZ resident of 30+ years for AoSHQ that should be exciting to all of you.

In AZ during the primaries we usually have more Republicans vote than Dems, but just by a bit.

In this election, Republicans showed up big. Voter turnout is nearing 35% for the primary as the last votes come in. Normal non-presidential year primaries average around 27%.

It was Republicans who made this a big year. Both parties had competitive races. Yet the Democrat Governor primary won by Katie Hobbs have a total of around 590,000 votes to the Republicans 820,000, won by Kari Lake. A quarter million more Republican voters…in a non-presidential year primary! Over 40% more Republican votes!

The Secretary of State race for the Dems, a tight race which was won 53%-47%, garnered around 570,000 votes. The Republican race was dominated by Trump guy Finchum, and garnered around 765,000 votes, nearly 200,000 more. Nearly 40% more!

324 I'm hearing that, contrary to what Eric Trump said, they found something in the safe and it'll end Trump's political life.

He had video of AOC (he secretly wants to date her) building a Lego Capitol Building. It's pretty devastating.

I heard they found his Grand Dragon of the Boogaloo Boys official robes. They're cut like clan robes but in a Hawaiian print. So, racist, but very festive.

Fix me up with a date with AOC. In a nice Billy Joel Italian Restaurant. A bottle of red. A bottle of white. Whatever suited her admittedly dentition aggressive appetite.

She could have anything she wants, in my Big Shouldered White Dude Restaurant.

344 "Stop Telling Conservative Teens to Not Go To College

Leaving universities firmly in the hands of the enemy while young conservatives reduce their chances of achieving the American dream is not the path forward."

Definitely feel that if you start preparing your kids and teaching them about leftist propaganda and mind manipulation this can work.

Teach them while their young to be leaders not followers, before they're ready for college.
