The Progressive Leftwingers are masters at keeping the political pot boiling. You can do it too!
Make their heads explode!
Surely you saw the stunt a couple of Trump supporters pulled at Yankee Stadium on Thursday. It was a peaceful protest, no one was hurt, but the reaction by the media was swift and angry, and fun to watch.
Reportedly fans in the stands booed the message, but hundreds of thousands of Trumpsters cheered at home.
If you missed it, here is the NY Postquoting a reporter who called it a “conspiracy theory banner.”

And, what about those audits?
Have you been following especially Arizona right now? If you were confident in your assertions that no massive fraud occurred why would you fight so hard to stop that audit and all of the others bubbling up?
You would think that Biden/Harris would be eager to prove they legitimately won and be demanding audits!
You gotta love Sidney Powell who spoke at a Dallas eventand answered a question we have all had in our minds. What happens if massive fraud is revealed in several key states? Will the election be overturned?
Sidney Powell: We’re definitely in uncharted territory. There are cases where elections have been overturned. But there’s never been one at the presidential level where everybody will jump to point out. That doesn’t mean it can’t be done, though. There’s always the first case. And as far as I know, this is the first case of abject fraud and obtaining a coup of the United States of America. So, it’s going to have to be dealt with. It should be that he can simply be reinstated, that a new inauguration day is set. (cheers) And Biden is told to move out of the White House. And President Trump should be moved back in.
She is right. This could be accomplished.
Otherwise we keep stirring the political pot and wait until 2024.
There is no way Biden will make it that long. Kamala is too wildly UNPOPULAR and dimwitted to win on her own. Did you see her tone-deaf tweet for the weekend set aside to remember our fallen heroes!
Criticism was swift, brutal and justified.
But, the question is, how much damage will they do before they get the heave-ho? A lot!
For instance, see my posts at RRWabout the Unaccompanied Alien Children (aka New Democrats) who are arriving by the tens of thousands—changing America every day that those two remain in charge.
Watch for the Biden Administration to begin weaving and dodging on issues involving defunding the police and “reimagining” policing as Americans now feel safer about the Chinese Virus, but are feeling increasingly less safe from violence especially in large Democrat run cities.
The George Floyd rioting has finally sunk into the American psyche and many are realizing that they need the police after all.
The Republicans just got some news that they can use!
Tie every Dem running in 2022 to the anti-police message of the faltering Black Lives Matter movement.
You can bet the real numbers are even worse for BLM and others pushing their racist message because those polled by Yahoo News likely already leaned to the Left.
Poll: More Americans now say violent crime is a ‘very big problem’ than say the same about COVID-19
In stark contrast to last summer, more Americans now say violent crime is a “very big problem” in the U.S. than say the same about COVID-19, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll — a shift that suggests policing and public safety could come to dominate U.S. politics as the pandemic subsides, potentially putting the Biden administration and Democratic leaders on the defensive.
The survey of 1,588 U.S. adults, which was conducted from May 24 to May 26, found that just 32 percent of them now describe COVID-19 as a very big problem, down from 61 percent last July.
In a certain sense, this isn’t surprising. While mass vaccination has driven COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalizations to their lowest levels in many months, violent crime has been rising (even though it’s still occurring at a far lower rate than it was for much of the 1990s and before).
Nearly two-thirds of Americans (65 percent) now believe violent crime is increasing, including 76 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of independents and 63 percent of Democrats, according to the Yahoo News/YouGov poll. It’s the rare issue that elicits bipartisan agreement.
What is striking, however, is that while anxiety about violent crime has held steady across the political spectrum since last summer, concerns about race relations and sympathy with racial justice reformers have fallen sharply in the wake of the protests that followed the murder of George Floyd one year ago.
Overall, the share of Americans who see race as a “very big problem” in the U.S. is now 13 percentage points lower than it was last July.
As a result, the political scales seem to be tilting away from racial justice reform…
Last June, for instance, 60 percent of Americans told Yahoo News and YouGov that there was a problem with systemic racism in policing; 63 percent said there was a problem with systemic racism in America. Today, both numbers are significantly lower: 51 percent and 55 percent, respectively. And while 57 percent of Americans had a favorable view of Black Lives Matter last June (compared with 33 percent unfavorable), today more Americans view BLM unfavorably (45 percent) than favorably (43 percent) — a net shift of 26 points against the movement.
In fact, when Americans who believe violent crime is increasing are asked why, far more now blame “the racial justice movement” itself (57 percent) than blame joblessness (44 percent), systemic racism (40 percent) or the pandemic (35 percent).
Then this made me laugh….”Experts debate…” There is no debate. Anyone with half a brain could see that the Progressives’ rhetoric was encouraging violence.
Experts debate whether progressive reforms and critical rhetoric have played any role in encouraging violence; they tend to cite the pandemic and record gun sales [Duh! up because people are trying to protect themselves—ed] as likelier factors.
Either way, the issue could vex Democrats going forward.
Asked who has done a better job handling crime, more Americans (34 percent vs. 32 percent) and independents (39 percent vs. 23 percent) say Trump than Biden.
From reports earlier in the week it looks like the 30-something Miles Taylor is the leader of the breakaway group that includes many of the Never-Trumpers involved in the disgraced Lincoln Project.
Here is their press release from yesterday. Seems they have backed off from earlier declarations that they were going to announce the formation of their own party—darn!
Instead they plan to bully the GOP for awhile and if that doesn’t work, then they will think about a new party.
Looks like the plan is a redux of pot shots from the wings using the Lincoln Project model.
Keep in mind that likely most of these “prominent Republicans” voted for Joe Biden (many have admitted doing so).
150 Prominent Republicans and Independents Release ‘A Call for American Renewal’ Charting New Path
WASHINGTON, May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — A coalition of 150 prominent Republican and independent leaders have released ACall for American Renewal, a principles-based vision for American leadership, as an alternative to the current direction of the Republican Party and growing extremism in the nation. Their call for a return to principles (available at: www.acallforamericanrenewal.com) follows a February summit and subsequent organizing.
Miffed over the mistreatment of Cheney!
As GOP leadership marginalizes Representative Liz Cheney and other honorable members and citizens for simple acts of truth-telling and conscience, founding signatories to this statement are mobilizing disaffected voters to impact competitive elections around the country and shape the future of the nation. This “common-sense coalition” seeks to catalyze the reform of the Republican Party and its recommitment to truth, founding ideals, and decency or, if unsuccessful, lay the foundation for an alternative.
“These principles are vital to our individual and collective flourishing, overcoming modern challenges, and preserving our way of life. They’re a foundation to unite Americans from diverse backgrounds in common cause. Our nation is calling out for a new coalition of principled, pragmatic citizens to renew America and counter the partisanship and extremism infecting the country,” said Evan McMullin, Executive Director of Stand Up Republic, former House Republican Conference policy director and 2016 independent presidential candidate.
“There’s only one thing that can beat back the tides of extremism, fear, and conspiracy, and that is a people, unified behind common principles, joining their voices to demand better. That’s what we’re doing with A Call for American Renewal. Together, we can — and will — return our politics to the principles which should define us, and lead the way to a better, brighter future for all Americans,” said Miles Taylor, former Homeland Security official and co-founder of Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform.
One thing they have done is create a handy list of Never-Trumpers you can reference when and if you hear from them locally.
Key signers of A Call for American Renewal include Michael Steele, Barbara Comstock, Christine Todd Whitman, Denver Riggleman, Michael Chertoff, Charles Djou, George Conway, Charlie Dent, Reid Ribble, Evan McMullin, Charlie Sykes, Anthony Scaramucci, Mona Charen, Miles Taylor, Tom Ridge, Michael Hayden,Paul Mitchell, Bill Weld, Mike Madrid, Claudine Schneider, Jim Kolbe, Mary Peters, John Negroponte, and many others. For a full text of A Call for American Renewal and list of signatories, visit www.acallforamericanrenewal.com. To speak to one of the signatories or for assistance, please reach out to the point of contact below.
Go here to read their high-minded sounding, but lacking in policy detail, statement of who they are and what they want for our “diverse” nation.
See who signed.
Other than the few I highlighted above, I don’t know who the heck most of these “prominent leaders” are, do you?
However, one of my ‘special’ favorites—Not!—is former Pennsylvania Governor Ridge(also a former Sec. of Homeland Security).
Take a trip down memory lane to 2014 when he and other Republicans including Grover Norquist and Jeb Bush went public with their demand that MORE refugees be admitted to the US.
The Blaze on the latest wet kisses to Luntz from the anti-Trump media:
Frank Luntz says social media bans are Trump’s ‘own damn fault,’ predicts ‘with every passing month he’ll become less and less relevant’
Longtime Republican pollster and political strategist Frank Luntz slammed Donald Trump on Thursday, predicting his influence would quickly fade and arguing that the former president brought on the bans from various social media platforms by his own actions.
Luntz made the remarks while speaking on the New York Times podcast, “Sway,”with host Kara Swisher just minutes after Facebook’s oversight board upheld the platform’s decision to restrict Trump’s access following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
During the interview, the pollster claimed that Trump, though at the moment still influential, will never be able to affect politics in the same way given his lack of access to social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, and his displacement from the Oval Office.
“He’ll never engage in the way he did before, because he simply doesn’t have that capability,” Luntz argued. “He can’t hop on Air Force One. He cannot dominate the news coverage. He can get a sliver of it. And he will continue to do so. He’s not going away.
“That said, it just doesn’t move people the way that it used to,” he continued. “And with every passing month, he’ll become less and less relevant.”
Later in the interview, Luntz proclaimed that “Donald Trump has no one but himself to blame” regarding his indefinite removal from social media platforms.
Is Luntz whispering this to his roomy?
Apparently in that same interview, propagandist Luntz says that if Trump keeps saying the 2020 Election was a “Big Lie,” that it was indeed stolen, it will cost the Republicans the House in 2022.
Why is anyone listening to looney Luntz? And, especially why would Kevin McCarthy, the wannabe Speaker of the House, be cohabitating with this weirdo?
How on earth can we trust McCarthy’s judgement after you have a look at the video below.
Luntz, a REPUBLICAN (supposedly), has a million dollar replica of the Oval Office in his California home, and brags about using the cost of the remodeling as a tax deduction.
Luntz’s ego seems to be as fat as his head. (I don’t make a habit of attacking anyone for their looks and lifestyle, but I am making an exception for Luntz.)
By the way, who needs Facebook and Twitter!
You can hear directly from President Trump at his new social media site: From the Desk of Donald J. Trump. Click here.
P.S. Let me know if you see news about McCarthy moving out of Luntz’s DC pad.
Readers ask me that question from time to time as they see life becoming more challenging in states the Left is turning blue (or live in ones already deep blue).
If you like the arid West, I usually say Wyoming because it is the only state in the nation with no refugee program. Diversity through migration will happen slowly there. North and South Dakota are still promising. Montana is beautiful, but also has an expanding cabal of Leftwing woke activists.
Conventional wisdom says Texas is a good bet, but I’m not pushing Texas for one obvious reason—the US southern border with Mexico!
A few heartland states are doing okay.
If you like the warm South, conventional wisdom recommends Florida, but I would look to a few of the gulf states as good choices. And, then further north up the coast, South Carolina hasn’t yet swallowed the Kool-Aid, well, maybe just a sip.
A lot of conservatives are rushing to Tennessee, but they have no idea about what is happening in Nashville which has become a mecca for the diversity is beautiful crowd. Don’t believe me, see that I have an entire category at RRW on Nashville.
Going north, West Virginia still holds promise, but forget North Carolina and Virginia, goners both in my opinion. Most people don’t know that NC has a huge refugee population from Muslim countries. North of Virginia there is no real hope for a peaceful conservative life in the years to come.
LOL! I bet all of you are now ready to tell me your choices—please do! Send comments to this post!
But, what got me thinking about all of this again today is a story a reader sent a week or so ago. It is an article by a young woman moving out of Minnesota where she was born and raised.
A local guy at my Maryland door just a few days ago said he wished we could just divvy-up the country giving us some safe states and giving them states like Minnesota, California, New York and so on. He isn’t talking about racial diversity either, it is about conservative values vs. woke liberal ones.
And, then yesterday when I wrotethis post at RRWabout Winchester, Virginia possibly jumping on the refugees-welcome bandwagon, I wondered again, so where should one move in order to live in peace and raise families with others who share an America first world view.
Anyway….here is the story from Minnesota (hat tip:Bob). Of course, Minneapolis isn’t all there is in Minnesota, it is a lovely state, but….
I’ve lived in Minneapolis my entire life. I’m leaving Friday. I no longer recognize my hometown.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Minneapolis is my home. My happiest memories are here. It’s where I learned to ride a bike, had my first date, received my high school diploma.
But today, I’m too afraid to even walk in my neighborhood by myself.
The ACE Hardware down the street? The one that I used to bike to in the summer? Robbed twice in the past five days.
The Walgreens next to my elementary school? Molotov cocktail thrown into it.
The Lake Harriet Bandshell, where we spent countless Mother’s Days? Homeless encampment popped up next door.
How did it happen so fast? That may be the question you are asking yourself where you live?
She goes on with all of it, including the George Floyd riots and then wraps with this:
It’s easy to look at (for lack of a better word) disaster zones like these and mentally distance yourself from them. Yeah, that’s awful, but those people choose to live there. They’re the ones electing these leaders. This is their problem.
Yeah, it is. It is our problem.
And I can’t help but look around and wonder, “What happened here? Where exactly did it all go wrong?”
Was it the liberal mob? Identity politics? The cries of “RACIST!” when someone disagreed with a particular reaction or policy?
Was it conservative silence as the loudest voices got more and more radical?
Was it our acceptance that “we live in a blue area, this is just the way things are?”
How did it all happen so fast?
Whatever it was, I’m leaving this dark, surreal, twisted version of Minneapolis on Friday. And I pray to God that I never have to come back.
Protests reveal generational divide in immigrant communities
She (one of the ‘stars’ of this article) agreed that the United States offered opportunities for education and a “better life,” but she had also made up her mind that such a life would not be complete without justice for Black people.
After moving to Brooklyn Center from Liberia in 2015, she said she was treated differently as a Black person. People commented on the color of her skin, disapproved of the clothes she wore and once called the police on her and a friend for being too “loud.”
I will bet a buck that not one white person “commented on the color of her skin!” Then this:
“I started to realize like, ‘Oh, America is not what it says on TV,'” she said.
[I know what you are thinking! Maybe just go home then!—ed.]
Then Floyd’s death sparked protests, and she decided that “this was not the American dream I was promised.”
Kromah is not alone. Young people in the city’s East African communities came out to protest in droves following Floyd’s death.
Despite tension, at times, between Black immigrants from Africa and Black people whose long history in the U.S. began with slavery, protesters united around decrying police brutality they said plagued their communities.
The verse “Somali lives, they matter here,” often followed the protest refrain of “Black lives, they matter here.” And one of the most widely shared images of last year’s protests was a video posted on social media showing a protester in a hijab and a long skirt kicking a tear gas cannister back toward law enforcement officers in riot gear.
“I am Somali, I am Black American, I am Muslim,” 21-year-old Aki Abdi said. “If a cop pulls me over, he don’t know if I’m Somali or Black. They go hand in hand.”
There is more. So is it any wonder that many are leaving Minnesota!
Of course, then that leaves the question we started with—where could people, of any race, who love America and want to live in peace, find a home?
That would be in any state that is not rolling out the welcome mat to massive numbers of migrants unwilling to assimilate as they import their third world values to America.
