More Good News

 

First: So the RNC has actually announced it will no longer accept the Commission on Presidential Debates as the broker of debates. This seems like Charlie Brown finally accepting that Lucy will never hold the football. I believe it can be traced directly to DJT’s pugnacity and is a definite, serious change in direction.

Second: Gov. Greg Abbott actually did what he said and shipped to DC at least some of the illegals admitted into Texas by the feds. Of course, they were immediately met and embraced by church groups and other subversive NGOs.

But together these strike me as good signs that at least something affirmative is happening.  After all, right now the RNC doesn’t have to do anything to take both houses in November. The Dems appear to be doing their best to double-down on everything they have been doing to alienate the electorate.

As much as I expect to be disappointed by the Cocaine Mitch wing of the GOP, right now, good things are happening.

    It might be better if the Texas illegals were sent to Delaware instead of DC, and maybe some dropped off at Nancy Pelosi’s gated mansion.

    But still….

    Baby steps.

    More like this pleaese. Say, natitonwide TV and internet ads connecting Biden and electorally endangered Dems to the very worst, most insane of the “let’s normalise transgenderism in preschoolers crowd” and their support of CRT to Frank James and his monstrous ilk. The devil take nice. Time to bring a deck gun to a knife fight.

    They need to be sent to any entity, state or city that claims to be a sanctuary and is giving extra benefits to illegals.   They need to be pushed until they prove themselves to be hypocrites they are.  They need to be pushed until they break.

    Empty the buses right across the street from the Capitol.

    That might “concentrate the minds” of DC residents more than anything else.  However the Capitol Cretins are well-known for not spending all that much time actually at the Capitol.  Not necessarily their home states either, of course.  But not really the Capitol.

    It’s possible, but it seems to me that cheating in all 435 House districts and all 30-something Senate seats that are up each two years, is far more difficult than marking millions of fraudulent ballots for one person, Biden.

    You only need to rig the House districts and Senate seats which, if flipped, would make the relevant chamber go Republican.  Remember that the Dems “harvested” enough ballots after the 2018 elections to take away 5 or 6 Orange County House seats. Remember Norm Coleman, the Minnesota senator who narrowly won re-election and was tossed out by 310 votes in a “recount”, which included trunks full of ballots uniformly marked for Al Franken. Et Cetera, Et Cetera.

    My prediction holds.  The Republicans will enjoy a tsunami, they will win many districts 2 to 1, but enough “close races” will be conducted by fraud that neither chamber flips.

    Why do you reach back 14 years when we have a much more important election from just five months ago?  How do you explain the purple-state Virginia Republican Quadruple-Crown flip of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and State House?

    Maybe.  But county politics have been corrupt for years.  They have been bending elections to keep the county / state party machines in power for a long time.  All I see now is that they are pushing federal level politics down where they can to hook up with the local level county level corruption.   It would not take much to do so.  I figure a Build Back Better has enough incentives to have the county guys to play ball as long as they have confidence that the structure will funnel the money back to their levels of grift.

    That’s pretty good.  Couple of standout events came to mind (Candy Crowley being the obvious), but it’s so blatantly biased as to induce hurling.

    One question.  Why do the illegals have to stay in the US?  My understanding is that Canada has plenty of land and the right Leftist mindset to think illegals are better than most of their citizens.   Why do we not just bus them to the next border?

    Acting on that is a sure way to make sure conservatives lose.
