Still, they say the Republican Party is finished, kaput, dead, over.
Here's what we have to say about that:
The rumors of the death of the Republican Party are greatly exaggerated -- and always have been. Indeed, the GOP has been declared dead time and time again, only to reemerge and retake power.
The Republican Party is a glorious invalid with a tenacious disposition and and a keen sense of survival.
After FDR took office in 1933 only 25 of the 100 members of the US Senate were Republican. But by 1946 the Republicans had recaptured Congress and in 1952 they set in motion a new era of GOP rule: Ike, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush and W. Bush. That's 36 years of GOP dominance after the party had already been declared "dead."
BTW: Recall that even the dreaded Watergate scandal and Nixon's impeachment only kept the GOP out of the White House for one term. Yet, this did nothing to deter the Republican-haters and their death wish crowd. They never learn.
So, the grim reapers returned. By 2016, the "experts" declared there was no way the GOP could come back and recapture the White House after the golden "Age of Obama" which they said surely ushered in a new era of Democrat dominance. Yeah, right -- except for Donald Trump who reimagined the Republican Party and attracted new followers that the elites never knew existed while pulling off one of the biggest upsets in history. And even last year, Republicans did the unthinkable and picked up a surprising number of seats in the House while attracting African-Americans, Hispanics and working class voters in record numbers.
So, put in perspective, this business about the demise of the GOP is just so much nonsense!
The party has been in far worse shape than it's in today and still bounced back stronger and better than ever. Plus, the GOP now boasts not just a strong bench but a galaxy of up-and-coming stars as well: Cotton, Blackburn, Noem, Scott, Haley, Cawthorn, DeSantis, Hawley, Rubio, Cruz, Crenshaw, Gaetz and so many more.
And one more thing: Over he past 60+ years, only one party has ever won three successive terms in the White House -- and it ain't the Democrats.
So please, spare us the death notices and get the hell out of the way. The Republican Party is on the march!

This woman ought to be ashamed of herself! But increasingly, it seems this administration has no shame. And neither do the media -- though we'll at least give one reporter credit for calling her on the "circle back" promise.

To hear Big Media tell it you'd think Joe Biden was off to a rousing start in the White House. But the ever-reliable Rasmussen poll tells a different story. In fact, Rasmussen finds Biden in negative territory with more likely voters strongly disapproving of his performance than strongly approving. Translation: lots of people are unimpressed and a significant number are strongly opposed. Biden just doesn't generate much favorable passion. And Biden's approval numbers still haven't broken the all-important 50% mark. Here's the lowdown from Rasmusen:

To begin with, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki comes across as ditzy since she seems to know very little. And, she must be DIZZY as well wth all that circling back.
What a disaster. But, she seems to be getting away with it. You're not suprised, are you?
New Jersey State Senator Kristin Corrado (R-40) responded to news that Gov. Phil Murphy is hiring former State Comptroller Matt Boxer to investigate horrific abuses of women that occurred under his watch at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility.
Kate Brennan alleged that she was sexually assaulted while working on Governor Murphy’s gubernatorial campaign by another member of his staff. Despite multiple attempts by Brennan to bring her alleged assault to the governor’s attention, she was repeatedly ignored and stonewalled.
Similarly, concerns about abuses of female prisoners at Edna Mahan were raised in a shocking report by the United States Department of Justice nearly a year ago, but no action was taken by Governor Murphy to address those concerns.
Earlier this month, new allegations of widespread abuse were raised at the correctional facility
“Governor Murphy has repeatedly been unwilling to listen to warnings or concerns that people tried to bring to his attention, leading to additional acts of brutality and victimization against women,” added Corrado. “Additionally, it’s beyond disappointing that New Jersey taxpayers will have to shell out for another expensive investigation because Governor Murphy’s reaction is to circle the wagons rather than hold his team accountable like a real leader would do.”
Corrado served as vice-chair of the bipartisan Legislative Select Oversight Committee (LSOC), which probed the Murphy’s Administration’s failure to properly act on Brennan’s allegations and offer workplace protections.

An Executive Order signed by Governor Murphy mandating bars and restaurants to suspend indoor dining between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. has been in place since the fall and continues to financially strangle the industry hit hardest by the pandemic. The 10th District Legislators, Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Greg McGuckin and John Catalano have released the following statement requesting that the Governor remove the 10 p.m. curfew in order to prevent these small businesses from closing their doors permanently.
“We understand it’s a balancing act to maintain a healthy community and a healthy economy for our small businesses. However, we believe the adjustments these establishments have made to ensure their patrons safety are working. Lifting the restrictions on early closing times at restaurants and bars will give small businesses some relief going forward.
“Our Governor needs to make exceptions to sustain our local economies and prevent our restaurants from closing their doors permanently. This industry has already lost so much revenue during this time and we need to give them a fighting chance for survival in the months going forward. Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, March Madness, UFC Fights are all opportunities to regain some ground. Bars and restaurants are able to accommodate patrons safely who willing to visit local establishments, whether it’s day or night. Does it make any sense to differentiate between 9:45 and 10:15?
“If the Governor mandates private businesses to close to protect the public good, then he should also reimburse these establishments for any revenue lost. Our bill, S-3060/A-4849, compensates the business owner for loss of income during a temporary partial or complete closure of the business.
“Legislation along with lifting arbitrary restrictions on these establishments is the only way to keep the lights on for an industry that has been gutted since March.”

The science is clear that kids can return to school safely and keeping them out of school only harms kids and families. We’ve known this for months.

On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order to have the United States rejoin the Paris climate agreement, but most voters believe Biden’s decision will mean lost jobs and higher bills for Americans.

Did President Trump incite an "erection" or did he incite an "erection insurrection"? Either way, Schumer mada a complete fool of himself on the floor of the Senate.
The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) issued the following statement earlier this week following the news that the Biden-Harris Administration plans to rescind the permit and effectively end construction on the Keystone XL pipeline:
“In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1. Let me be very clear: When built with union labor by the men and women of the United Association, pipelines like Keystone XL remain the safest and most efficient modes of energy transportation in the world. Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association.
“New advancements in technology mean that these pipelines are a low-carbon method of energy transportation and a critical part of delivering affordable energy while achieving our shared climate goals. Keystone XL would not only be constructed entirely by union labor, but it would be the first pipeline fully powered by renewable energy.”
“For eight years the Obama Administration delayed and blocked a decision on Keystone XL. Then the flawed process and mismanagement of the Trump Administration led to further delays and inaction over the last four years. Now, this planned decision by the Biden Administration makes it the third White House to fail the working families of the United Association and all Americans who rely on affordable and reliable energy to power their daily lives. Decisions on energy and infrastructure, especially when jobs are at stake, can only be made when the voice of the workers is in the room. We will keep fighting for Keystone XL and any infrastructure project that creates good jobs for the Brothers and Sisters of the United Association, and to make sure our members have a seat at the table.
Lots of people seem to think that President Trump was The Worst President Ever. At least that's what we keep hearing from traditional media which point to selected polls which they say showed that Trump consistently racked up dismal approval ratings.
Now, we hear from the same sources that Biden is off to a grand start with strong public support based on his repeated pleas for unity. But what if we told you that's not so? And what if we showed you poll numbers to back it up?
