Huge Crowd Attends Trump Rally in Arizona: ‘Nobody’s Ever Had a Movement Like This’

 A massive crowd gathered for former President Donald Trump’s rally in Florence, Arizona, on Saturday evening.

“Look at the people, as far as the eye can see… Look at the people way back, and I mean like football fields back,” Trump said while gesturing toward the audience.

“And you know what? I would ask the press to turn your cameras around and show the kind of crowd that we have, because nobody’s ever had a movement like this,” he continued:

Nobody’s ever had spirit like this or a crowd like this. But see they don’t turn the cameras, they don’t want to turn the cameras. They don’t want to turn the cameras and frankly, they move the cameras into a bad location for us. They should have been put way back. They have magnifying lenses. They have lenses that could’ve handled it. But take a look behind you, press, because when they show the kind of numbers that are represented tonight, some of the government people said its the single biggest crowd they’ve seen yet. And they’re not just talking about Arizona.

Kamala Harris is now officially a joke

 There is no way to recover national political standing once a politician becomes a popular butt of humor, a punchline in a degrading joke. Ask Dan Quayle, who has disappeared from the scene so completely that nobody has even gotten him on the record about the vice presidency of Kamala Harris. My guess is that he is enjoying bitter laughter.

Last Thursday’s interview with Craig Melvin of Democrat-friendly NBC sealed her fate. The Zen koan-like statement, "It is time for us to do what we have been doing. And that time is every day," closes the case, a brilliantly meaningless platitude that seems to demand meditation, as if there must be some enlightenment lurking in the vast mental emptiness.

But of course, there isn’t. More and more people are reluctantly coming to the conclusion that the woman who is a heartbeat away from the presidency, whose incumbent is elderly and afflicted by dementia, is a dummy. I resisted that conclusion in part because, after all, she was elected California’s attorney general and senator and she is the daughter of two professors, but mostly out of fear for our nation. But as her ex-staffers multiply in number, reports are proliferating of those who know her up close privately saying that, yeah, she is that stupid.

Miyares fires 30 in AG's office, including lawyer investigating dangerous conditions at Richmond apartments


Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares notified about 30 staff members in the office — 17 of them attorneys — that they won’t have jobs in his administration, including the lawyer who was investigating dangerous conditions at a South Richmond apartment complex in Richmond’s largest Latino neighborhood.

Miyares, a Republican, will be sworn in on Saturday to replace Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring, whom Miyares defeated in the November election.

Miyares spokesperson Victoria LaCivita said the 30 staff members were told that Miyares would be moving in a different direction.

“During the campaign, it was made clear that now Attorney General-elect Miyares and Attorney General Herring have very different visions for the office,” she said by email for this story. “We are restructuring the office, as every incoming AG has done in the past.”

Howie Carr: Think Joe Biden is bad? Check out the current line of succession

 Before you heed those calls to remove Dementia Joe Biden via either impeachment or the 25th amendment, remember the old saying: Be careful what you wish for.

As another incompetent Democrat by the name of M. Stanley Dukakis used to say, “The fish rots from the head.”

Check out the current chart of presidential succession and you will realize just how rudderless the ship of state is.

How hopeless is the federal government? Marty Walsh, the bust out former mayor of Boston who is now Secretary of Labor, is number 11 in the line of succession to the presidency.

Does that frighten you? Because it gets worse, much worse.

Joe himself might be concerned… if only he could just remember any of his appointees’ names.

Presidents used to seek out at least a few “captains of industry” for their cabinets. Biden doesn’t even have any buck privates of industry.

Take the vice president, Kamala Harris. Please. If you don’t know her background, just google her name and “Willie Brown.” Then tell me about her impeccable credentials.

Next in line to the presidency is Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She’s 80 years old and likes to say she was “set up” every time she’s caught not wearing a mask, which is about once a month.

NFL explores Super Bowl move from Los Angeles to Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium

 The NFL is exploring contingencies if COVID-19 restrictions in the Los Angeles area appear they will be too onerous to hold the Super Bowl.

WFAA, citing a Dallas Cowboys front-office source, reports the league has had “preliminary discussions” about moving the Big Game from SoFi Stadium to AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy confirmed to WFAA that the contingency has been explored, though he mentioned it’s not an unusual exercise.

“We plan on playing Super Bowl LVI as scheduled at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 13,” McCarthy said. “As part of our standard contingency planning process that we conduct for all regular and postseason games, we have contacted several clubs to inquire about stadium availability in the event we cannot play the Super Bowl as scheduled due to weather-related issues or unforeseen circumstances. Our planning process for the Super Bowl in Los Angeles is ahead of schedule and we look forward to hosting the Super Bowl there to culminate another fantastic NFL season for our fans and clubs.”

Associated Press = Associated Propaganda

 If nothing else, the past two years have demonstrated with blazing clarity how the ruling elites live by one set of rules and impose an entirely separate set of rules on the unfavored, ostracized, dispossessed and deplatformed.

As a member of the print, broadcast and internet media for the past 30 years, I cannot emphasize enough how complicit so-called mainstream journalists are in perpetuating such double standards and stoking hatred of dissidents. The Fourth Estate will spare no one — not even the dead — in its ruthless pursuit of absolute power over political narratives.

Let us consider a widely disseminated hit piece by Associated Press investigative reporter Michael Biesecker published on Jan. 3. Here’s the bias-laden title that reads more like an MSNBC op-ed whine than a straight news headline:

“Ashli Babbitt a Martyr? Her Past Tells a More Complex Story.”

Ashli Babbitt, as you may know, is the 35-year-old Air Force veteran and Trump supporter shot and killed by a Capitol police officer one year ago this week during the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington, D.C. The fetid article under the fetid headline is victim-blaming at its rock-bottom lowest


Critics say 'Don't Look Up' is not a very good movie, but as an analogy for climate change it's even worse


The new Netflix film Don’t Look Up is sort of the big budget sequel to celebrities singing Imagine, The film has an impressive cast—Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep—unfortunately they’ve all gathered in the service of a preachy climate change comedy that even a lot of left-wing reviewers found to be not very funny or illuminating.

If you’ve missed the concept of this one, it’s pretty simple. Two scientists discover a planet-killing comet is going to wipe out the earth in six months. The government plans to blow it up with nuclear missiles but that plan is put on hold when it’s discovered the comet is full of valuable minerals. The back up plan is to break up the comet and collect the valuable pieces that fall to earth. Meanwhile, the whole situation becomes so politicized that one scientist encourages people to just look up to see the comet really is coming while a backlash to this encourages people to do the opposite, i.e. don’t look up. If that analogy to climate change sounds pretty strained and not very funny, well that’s what a lot of reviewers thought too. Here’s Rolling Stone’s take:

Somewhere out there, someone may be crafting the ultimate Swiftian skewering of our cultural death-spiral moment — but Don’t Look Up is most certainly not that. So caught up in its own hysterical shrieking that it drowns out any laughs, or sense of poignancy, or points it might be trying to make, McKay’s screed imagines the response that would greet such dire news circa right now…

Don’t Look Up is a blunt instrument in lieu of a sharp razor, and while McKay may believe that we’re long past subtlety, it doesn’t mean that one man’s wake-up-sheeple howl into the abyss is funny, or insightful, or even watchable. It’s a disaster movie in more ways than one. Should you indeed look up, you may be surprised to find one A-list bomb of a movie, all inchoate rage and flailing limbs, falling right on top of you.

Joe Biden & the Basic Laws of Human Stupidity

ooIs Joe Biden stupid? No, this is not a trick question, or an attempt to shame the mentally weak. But, given a summary of Joe’s choices, can one claim that he makes good decisions? Instead, Joe has become a cipher for the far-left of his party, and seems utterly indifferent to success or failure. The GOP claims he’s suffering dementia. But another possibility is suggested in Economist Carlo M. Cipolla’s book , The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity—that Joe’s simply not a good decision maker. 

But even before his presidency, Biden was famed for bad decisions. Recall, Bush & Obama US Defense Secretary Robert Gates saying of VP Joe Biden, “I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” And has he improved since then? Consider Cipolla’s observation:

I take exception to this general view. It is my firm conviction, supported by years of observation and experimentation, that men are not equal, that some are stupid and others are not and that the difference is determined by nature and not by cultural forces or factors. One is stupid in the same way one is red-haired; one belongs to the stupid set as one belongs to a blood group. A stupid man is born a stupid man by an act of Providence.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tells his National Guard Biden is NOT their 'commander-in-chief' as he sues the White House over 'unconstitutional' military vaccine mandate

 Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sued President Biden over the administration's military vaccine mandate, citing the governor's authority 'as commander-in-chief and on Texas's sovereignty.'

Abbott filed suit Tuesday in Texas, asking a federal judge to overturn Biden's vaccine requirement, in a filing that repeatedly invokes Abbott's own authority as commander of chief of the guard, which is subject to complex jurisdiction.

Under overlapping statutes, state national guards remain under the command of governors except when they are called up for federal by the president. Title 10 of the U.S. Code applies to active duty military, while Title 32 applies to the Guard. 


Joe Biden Has Spent Over 25 Percent of his Presidency on Vacation.

 Joe Biden has spent 95 of his 348 days President on vacation, mostly in Delaware. That equates to a quarter of the Biden regime’s first year in office, at the time of writing, being spent doing anything other than being President during one of the most crisis-ridden times in modern human history.

Biden went back to Delaware just two and a half weeks after being sworn into office. His trips back and forth to his home state for “personal time” have been celebrated by the far-left media. They congratulate the 79-year-old for chasing his dogs around but at least he’s not playing golf.


Capitol Police Chief: 'We Will Likely Be Tested Again'; Not If, But 'When'

( - Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger, who became chief

six months after the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, told Congress on Wednesday that he expects Capitol security to be "tested again."

But unlike the situation last January 6, when "we just weren't prepared the way we should have been," Manger said, "the next time that we're tested, we will not be making those same mistakes."

Stefanik Torches Pelosi on Eve of January 6 Anniversary: Speaker ‘Bears Responsibility’ for Capitol Riot

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 19: U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) questions Ambassador Kurt Volker, former special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a former official at the National Security Council, as they testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill November 19, 2019 in Washington, DC. The committee heard …

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) asserted on Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shared blame for the riot that occurred on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol.

Stefanik, who serves as House GOP Conference chair, released a statement on the eve of the Capitol breach’s anniversary, thanking law enforcement for their work to control the riotous behavior but condemning Pelosi for ultimately being the one “responsible” for leaving the Capitol prone to attack.

Kamala Harris Struggles Through Question On Inflation During CBS Interview

 Vice President Kamala Harris struggled to give a coherent answer when asked about the economy and inflation during a Sunday interview on CBS.

Harris appeared on “Face the Nation” when host Margaret Brennan asked her on the issues of inflation going into the “third year” of a pandemic.

The question referred to a previous statement pushed by White House press secretary Jen Psaki that insisted inflation was only “transitory” and should go down within the next year.

Since then economists have admitted inflation has only gotten worse as the year ends with many predicting the increased spending proposals from President Biden could make the problem worse. 

Harris did not provide a clear answer to the question of combating inflation. She appeared to stumble on describing the process before pivoting to support for Biden’s Build Back Better plan, which has been delayed because Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced his opposition to the legislation. 

Senate Republicans open door to revising obscure 1887 law to protect elections

WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell opened the door Wednesday to revising an obscure 1887 election law as Democrats explore ways to protect the will of voters from any future attempts to overturn election results.

"Aside from all the other things they are discussing, this is something that’s worth discussing," McConnell, R-Ky., said one day before the anniversary of the Jan. 6 riot, when supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol in an effort to stop Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's electoral victory.

Capitol Hill is abuzz with new discussions about possible changes to the archaic statute known as the Electoral Count Act that governs the process of counting electoral votes sent by states for presidential contests. Critics, including some members of the Jan. 6 committee in the House, argue the existing law is poorly written and overly ambiguous after Trump's allies sought to exploit gaps to try and reject the outcome of the 2020 election.

Decoding the Tyranny of the Administrative State

Professor of Law Philip Hamburger of Columbia University has been campaigning for years to measure, define and condemn the growth of a powerful administrative state in America.     

The late, great Angelo Codevilla rang the alarm about the excesses of centralized oligarchic statism and an army of unelected bureaucrats eating away at liberty for citizens under the constitution in his essay, "Scientific Pretense and Democracy," followed on by another wellreceived  2010 essay "The Ruling Class and the Perils of Revolution," about the growth of an unelected totalitarian ruling class, whose influence and power are derived from "expertise" that allowed them to exert power over and intimidate the citizenry as the self-anointed oligarchy.

Manchin rejects Build Back Better revival: 'There's been no conversations'

 Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., told a gaggle of reporters Tuesday that there have been "no conversations" about negotiating with Democratic leadership and President Biden on the massive social spending bill known as the Build Back Better Act.

Asked whether negotiations or conversations about compromise have been ongoing, Manchin denied any knowledge of BBB discussions after his statement last month against the policy package.

"There's been no conversations after I made my statement. I was very clear, I feel as strongly today as I did then that the unknown with COVID – here we are. I've got an N-95, I see all of you do," Manchin told reporters. "So there's different concerns that we have right now that we haven't had for a while, so that's a concern. Inflation is still a concern. It's still over 6%."

One Year Later: Democrats’ Planned January 6 ‘Remembrance’ Exhibit Fails to Materialize

 Twenty-three House Democrats failed to build a “remembrance” exhibit by the first anniversary of the January 6 protests.

In the wake of the chaos that came from the January 6 protests, Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) proposed the Capitol Remembrance Act, which would require the Architect of the Capitol (A.O.C.) to create an “exhibit” that “depicts the attack on the Capitol that occurred on January 6, 2021.”

Biden again insists COVID a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’ even as fast-moving omicron spreads widely

President Biden on Tuesday maintained that COVID-19 is an illness of those who refuse the vaccine, stating that people who have not gotten shots should be "alarmed" by the highly-transmissible Omicron variant even as it rampages through the vaccinated population.

"There is no excuse — no excuse for anyone being unvaccinated," Biden said during remarks from the White House following a briefing from his COVID-19 response team. "This continues to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated. So we got to make more progress."

But those who have been vaccinated are still getting sick.

Joe Biden declares war on 'Big Meat'

 Following in the footsteps of Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden has declared war on meat.  Democrats have this thing against meat, see, and it manifests itself in multiple ways.

Here's the addled old fool's declaration as of yesterday, as reported by Bloomberg and RedState:

So Big Meat's the bad guy in this inflation crisis, and Joe's here to solve the problem, calling it a matter of antitrust enforcement.  Never mind that the entire economy is shot through with inflation running out of control.  No, the problem here is Big Meat oligarchs conspiring to raise prices.  It's goofy stuff, given that Democrats want higher meat prices.  Bernie Sanders, for instance, was seen bruiting a meat tax back in 2019 to save the planet.

Apparently they like high meat prices only if they're done through naked taxes to beef up government coffers.  If it's done with stealth taxes (read: inflation), then meat-producers are somehow the bad guy, to be subject to Joe's federal regulators because they supposedly collude with each other to raise prices.

Ted Cruz Says Republicans Will Likely Impeach Biden Over Border Policy If They Win House Majority

 Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is forecasting a Republican house takeover and a President Joe Biden impeachment in 2023.

“I’m very optimistic about 2022,” Cruz said on the latest episode of Verdict with Ted Cruz podcast. “I put the odds of the Republicans winning the house at 90/10 and it may even be higher than that.”

Cruz was not as optimistic about Republicans taking the Senate.

“I put our odds at 50/50,” he added. “I think it’s going to be a really good year but it’s a bad map.”

The Texas senator believes that if the GOP does indeed gain the majority in the House, impeachment would soon be on the table.

“If we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration,” he added.

“I do think there’s a chance of that,” Cruz said in reference to a Republican House impeaching President Biden. “Whether it’s justified or not, the Democrats weaponized impeachment. They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him. One of the real disadvantages of doing that is the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, you know what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”

Biden Hides Arrest Records, Terrorism Ties of Afghans Brought to U.S.


President Joe Biden is hiding a myriad of information on the more than 75,000 Afghans his administration has brought to the United States since August 2021, Breitbart News has learned.

On December 16, 2021, Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Josh Hawley (R-MO), and Rick Scott (R-FL) sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Secretary of State Antony Blinken inquiring about information related to the thousands of Afghans whom Biden has flown to the U.S. over the last five months. The Senators wrote:

Supreme Court Can and Should Resolve ‘Waters of the United States’ Issue

 For decades, there has been major confusion regarding what waters are regulated under the Clean Water Act.

The United States Supreme Court can change this by agreeing to hear a case brought by the Pacific Legal Foundation. In its petition asking the court to hear the case, Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, the Pacific Legal Foundation presents a simple question: Should Rapanos v. United States be revisited to adopt the plurality opinion’s standard for regulated wetlands?

In 2006, the late Justice Antonin Scalia in Rapanos provided much-needed clarity on what waters are covered under the Clean Water Act, and specifically what waters, including wetlands, should be considered “waters of the United States” (informally known as WOTUS) under the Clean Water Act. This definition is extremely important because it clarifies what waters the EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have jurisdiction over under the law.

Manhattan DA closes probe into nursing home deaths without charging Cuomo: attorney

 The Manhattan district attorney's office is closing its investigation into former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's handling of nursing home COVID-19 deaths without bringing charges against Cuomo, according to the former governor's attorney.

"I was contacted today by the head of the Elder Care Unit from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office who informed me they have closed its investigation involving the Executive Chamber and nursing homes," Elkan Abramowitz, a former federal prosecutor who had been hired to represent Cuomo, said Monday. "I was told that after a thorough investigation — as we have said all along — there was no evidence to suggest that any laws were broken."

Should Donald Trump run in 2024?

 With the turn of the calendar to 2022, Republicans are not only looking to the 2022 midterm elections but to the prospect of Donald Trump running in 2024. Trump is hugely popular with the party’s base and that popularity freezes the plans of other possible candidates for the 2024 nomination. Trump’s hold on that nomination is brittle, however, because of his age. On election day in 2024 Donald Trump will be 78 years old. That is one year older than Ronald Reagan’s age when he left office in 1988.

Florida Mayor-Elect Cancels Inauguration Ceremony After Catching COVID

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Mayor-elect of St. Petersburg has tested positive for COVID-19, prompting him to cancel his inauguration ceremony Thursday.

“Let this serve as a reminder to all of us to get vaccinated and follow CDC guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19,” Mayor-elect Ken Welch (D) said. “While this is disappointing, I am incredibly thankful that my current symptoms are not serious, and I keep in my thoughts and prayers all the families who have lost so much more to this pandemic. Though we will not be able to celebrate in person, let us keep front of mind the significance of the day – the day that we begin a journey together, as one community in one city, toward inclusive progress. We will have much more to celebrate together in the years to come.”

Welch, who will become the first black mayor of St. Petersburg, is fully vaccinated and boosted. He will be sworn in virtually on Thursday, Jan. 6.

2022 Midterms: Will a red wave overcome a blue wall?

 The chairs of the two GOP congressional reelection committees sound very confident that Republicans will win back majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate in the 2022 midterms.

"We’re going to take back the Senate, absolutely," Sen. Rick Scott of Florida, the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, vowed in an interview with Fox News two months ago.

And National Republican Congressional Committee chair Rep. Tom Emmer of Minnesota told Fox News a couple months ago, "Mark my words: Republicans will enter the 118th Congress with a majority and a record-breaking class of diverse members."

Gun Violence Hits 15-Year High In L.A., Taking Lives And Erasing Hard-Fought Gains

 The 17-year-old high school senior had arranged to sell his gaming console through the app OfferUp, and agreed to meet the buyer — another teenager — near a public housing complex in Watts. He intended to save the cash he earned for college expenses that fall.

Instead, one of two teens who met Reynolds at his car that hot day in May pulled out a gun and shot him, the bullet ricocheting off his hip and fragmenting through his abdomen. As he lay on the ground bleeding, he said, the second teen urged the first to fire again.

“Finish him off,” he heard the boy say

“I was in shock,” Reynolds, now 18, recalled in a recent interview with The Times. “It was a lot to process.”

The United States In 2040

 I do not write this article for the typical American Thinker reader. Like me, the typical reader already recoils in revulsion and fear about the direction this country and world are heading. I write instead for the Leftist sappers and monitors who watch what comes out in American Thinker either to pounce on it in trolling comments or simply report back to their overseers.

I want us all to engage in a New Year’s Day mental exercise and extrapolate where we will be—not as a country but as a culture—in 20 years. In that span, patriot conservatives may win a midterm election or two, and perhaps even a presidential election, but the culture will continue its 70-year trend.

President Obama's Justice Department has coughed up hundreds of millions of dollars to so-called "sanctuary cities" that refuse federal demands for criminal illegal immigrants sought for deportation, according to a new inspector general memo.
In just 10 of 155 jurisdictions reviewed, taxpayers handed over $342.1 million in Justice grants to the law-breaking cities and states that have policies barring jails and police from cooperating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The IG said that is 63 percent of the funds available to all American cities.
The memo is likely to stir up the issue of illegal immigration and sanctuary cities in the presidential campaign.

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton has voiced support for the sanctuary effort in which state and local officials in mostly urban areas choose to harbor illegals with criminal records rather than comply with ICE requests to turn them over or even identify their immigration status. Donald Trump has called for an end to the practice.

Hillary Says Trump Can’t Handle “Rough And Tumble”… So Donald IMMEDIATELY Does This

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump just gave the greatest comeback of all time to Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
At the Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia, Clinton said that Donald Trump can’t “handle the rough and tumble of a political campaign.”
“You really think Donald Trump has the temperament to be commander in chief? Donald Trump can’t even handle the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign!” she exclaimed. “He loses his cool at the slightest provocation.”
But Trump would not sit by and watch his rival tear him apart. Instead, the business mogul turned politician took to Twitter to defend himself. Here’s what he said:
Crooked Hillary said that I "couldn't handle the rough and tumble of a political campaign." Really,I just beat 16 people and am beating her!
Just last week, Donald Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination, and surprised even those within his own party by beating out countless other GOP candidates for the coveted presidential bid.
