August 12, 2022
It has been a disturbing week, which started with the the raid on President Trump's home.
Note that the left is trying to redefine yet another word. RAID. It seems the FBI is taking offense to the term as a description of their action. I guess we could call it a "nine hour military occupation".
Do not despair, we managed to dig up some good news!
1- The purpose of the January 6 hearings was to tarnish Trump and his supporters so much that Trump could never run again. But, it seems all that effort has had little to no effect on Trump's influence. This week in primary elections his endorsed candidates won and several more who voted for impeaching him lost. Despite massive efforts to bury Trump, he remains THE most influential political person in the country.
QUOTE: A new poll by Monmouth University shows that the much heralded January 6 Committee has had virtually no impact whatsoever on public opinion.
Well, this is awkward.The numbers show that fewer Americans, 64 per cent down from 65 per cent before the hearings, believe that happened at the Capitol represented a "riot."
"Only 2 per cent more Americans believe what happened was an "insurrection" (52 per cent), while an increase of 1 per cent (35 per cent total) believe it to have been a "legitimate protest.
"4 per cent fewer believe Trump was "directly responsible" for the incident, while only an additional 2 per cent said the hearings changed their mind (8 per cent total).
The survey illustrates how, just like the Trump impeachment trials, the January 6 investigation has been all sound and fury signifying nothing.
2- This is welcome news. We need everyone behind all of our candidates. This is a unifying move by DeSantis and he brings a different energy and message to voters.
By the way, there are NO bad Republican candidates. There are ONLY terrible Democrats.
Ron DeSantis Hits the Campaign Trail to Help Trump-Backed Candidates
QUOTE: It's not quite September yet, but with many of the primaries now over, mid-term election season is on the cusp of heating up. In Ohio, J.D. Vance is the favorite to take the GOP-held senate seat there. Meanwhile, things are dicier in places like Arizona and Pennsylvania, with Blake Masters and Mehmet Oz locked in tough battles to replace Democrat incumbents.
Help is on the way, though. Gov. Ron DeSantis is setting out on the campaign trail to flex his political muscles, looking to hold multiple rallies over the next few weeks.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is hitting the campaign trail this month to headline Turning Point Action's "Unite and Win" rallies in support of Trump-endorsed candidates.
DeSantis will travel to New Mexico, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Ohio this month in support of GOP candidates, including Ohio Republicans.candidate for Senate JD Vance, Pennsylvania's GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, Arizona Republican candidate for Senate Blake Masters and GOP nominee for governor Kari Lake.
Turning Point Action is hosting, and organizing the rallies with DeSantis in an effort to "unite" the Republican Party.
3- It is rare to see even a smart leftist who can come around to the truth and reality that is the Democrat Party. This is a good story. Read the whole thing.
"Over the years, I've given $20M to help Democrats win," said Steve Kirsch. "But they don't share any of my core values at all anymore."

Why is a $20M Dem Donor About to Jump Ship?
QUOTE: Kirsch, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, an MIT graduate, and philanthropist, has founded seven highly successful companies.
The rollout of the Covid-19 vaccines brought on even more questions.
"I used to believe that the FDA, NIH, and CDC were honest organizations," says Kirsch. "I trusted them. I'm doubly-vaxed with Moderna as of March 29, 2021. A month later, I started hearing stories from my friends who reported relatives who died or they themselves became permanently disabled. So, I looked into it and the more I looked, the more appalled I became."
In 2021 Kirsch founded the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, to bring experts together to study the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine and to spread awareness on their findings. Amid this, he found his own party wasn't willing to listen.
Kirsch has been targeted, smeared and de-platformed multiple times for his persistent criticism of the Covid-19 vaccine, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the government agencies that dictate the terms.
4- There is a mandate for auditing election results. We must elect political leaders who have the determination to follow up and plug the holes in the election dykes.
DATA: Most Americans Support Election Audits Immediately After Polling Day.
QUOTE: A majority of American voters support states requiring audits "immediately after elections" to protect election integrity, according to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports sponsored by The National Pulse.
Asked, "Should every state require that ballots be available immediately after elections for bipartisan voter reviews to enhance election confidence and transparency?" 56 percent of likely voters supported the idea while just 23 percent of likely voters opposed it.
The Rasmussen data showed that 68 percent of Republicans – considerably more than just 45 percent of their Democrat-voting counterparts – supported the push for election integrity. 57 percent of Independents were also in support.
5- More polling indicating the Democrats are failing with Americans.
QUOTE: According to a new poll from Convention of States and Trafalgar Group, the majority of Independents, 53.9%, believe Trump's political enemies are behind the FBI Raid. They join 76.7% of Republicans who hold the same view. The two groups are also aligned on enthusiasm to vote based on the FBI raid. The spectacle increased the motivation to vote for 83.3% of Republicans and 71.7% of Independents.
Nearly three-quarters of Trump-Deranged Democrats believe the raid was the impartial justice system at work. The raid did not create as much enthusiasm to vote among Democrats, with only 55.2% saying it made a difference.
"Independent and Republican voters are united in their outrage about this unprecedented and tragic event in American history. It's clear to voters that the FBI raid is designed to punish the primary political enemy of the regime in power," said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States. "This gestapo-style injustice has created a voting surge that is so significant, the polling doesn't even begin to reflect what is coming from grassroots voters in November,"
Recent polling from the groups showed that nearly 80% of voters already believed we have a two-tiered justice system. Watching the raid may have reinforced that view for many on the political right. Another shows significant majorities believe that federal agencies are too big and too political. Yet another indicated growing support for a Convention of States.
