More Bad News for goppers

Ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, suburban white women aren't afraid of critical race theory. They're afraid of REPUBLICANS.

Help Spread the Word!

If Kevin McCarthy seems out of his depth, rudderless, and incompetent in government leadership it's because his heart is still at his failed Bakersfield deli stand. We can't trust Kevin McCarthy to remember what meat goes on a baloney sandwich. We should not trust him with the legislative agenda of the strongest nation on Earth. Every chance McCarthy was given to demonstrate leadership resulted in failure and if the Insurrection Party takes control of the House of Representatives in 2022, We are doomed! If Kevin McCarthy becomes Speaker of the House, the insurrectionists will have won. We need to send Kevin McCarthy back to Bakersfield where he can be speaker of the deli.

If your concerns are public health, education, the economy, confronting our enemies, the safety of our children, etc., look into the eyes of Kevin McCarthy and you can almost hear him responding "do you want chips with that."

Help spread this message and messages like this - the same way the White Male Nationalist Party has tried to use Nancy Pelosi as their bogeywoman. Kevin McCarthy is an incompetent deli manager taking orders from insurrectionist traitors, not the American People.

NOTE: This is not a slight to deli managers. There are thousands of deli workers who are more capable than Kevin McCarthy.

TRUMP STATES IN CRISIS!

The curious concern of red state creeps over crime in "Democrat-run cities" only brings to light the utter disaster conservative states are mired in. When it comes to statistics that determine quality of life, Republican states represent the bulk of the very bottom. The best way to fix this is to enlighten the Tom Cottons, Marsha Blackburns et al. just what terrible shape the states they represent are in, and the best use of their oversized pie holes is to look homeward and speak to the problems that make their districts a collective national embarrassment.

Below is a series of stats that should humble your Mitch McConnells and Gym Jordans (if they had a shred of character). While there are occasional blue states that mingle among the bottom, it is red states that shine as the worst.

Walter Mondale Has Passed

Source: Axios

Walter Mondale, who transformed the role of U.S. vice president while serving under Jimmy Carter and was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984, died Monday at 93, according to a family spokesperson.

Mondale spoke by phone on Sunday with President Biden and former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, as well as Vice President Harris and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, said his friend and former campaign staffer Tom Cosgrove. While he and his family believed his death was imminent, after those calls he “perked up.”

'Promising Young Woman' + 'Borat' Emerge as Winners at 73rd WGA Awards

Source: Backstage

In a pre-taped, abbreviated ceremony representative of this atypical film and guilds awards season, the 2021 Writers Guild Awards were presented virtually March 21. The 73rd annual ceremony from the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) and Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) highlighted the guild’s selections for the strongest film and television screenplays of the past year, locking another awards puzzle piece into place ahead of the Oscars.

Following up on her stellar showing of six nominations on the Academy Awards’ recently announced list, Emerald Fennell took home the WGA’s original film screenplay prize for Focus Features’ “Promising Young Woman.” The feminist revenge thriller starring Carey Mulligan has also been nominated at the Directors Guild Awards for Fennell’s direction and at the Screen Actors Guild Awards (where Fennell is also, incidentally, recognized for acting as part of the drama ensemble on “The Crown”).

It Might Be Too Late, But...

It would be great to hear prominent Dems like Jaime Harrison give a prebuttal to the 2020 election loser's appearance at the Florida klan rally on Sunday. With so much hype around the speech, few if any people are focusing on the important fact that whatever the future inmate has to say, it will be a reminder of how a majority of Americans find him repulsive. This fraud lost the election because he was incapable of speaking to the issues that face real Americans.

-His response to the COVID crisis was a complete failure.
-His concern through the economic catastrophe of 2020 was his own bottom line.
-He brought the U.S. trade deficit to an all-time high.
-He exploded the federal debt.
-He bankrupted American farmers
-He thought empathy was a sign of weakness.
-He lied with unmatchable fluency.
-He promoted debunked conspiracy theories.
-He refused a peaceful transition of power.
-He instigated the first attack on the U.S. Capitol since the War of 1812.

If a goal of the Democratic Party is to destroy "Trumpism," then let's take away his oxygen before he can even speak. Let's head him off at the pass, as they used to say in old Westerns. Let's make him irrelevant before we get to the point where we wished we had done more sooner. Chances are he will be the author of his own destruction, but let's not wait for that.

Incoming WTO head warns 'vaccine nationalism' could slow pandemic recovery

Source: reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The World Trade Organization’s incoming chief on Monday warned against “vaccine nationalism’ that would slow progress in ending the COVID-19 pandemic and could erode economic growth for all countries - rich and poor.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala told Reuters her top priority was to ensure the WTO does more to address the pandemic, saying members should accelerate efforts to lift export restrictions slowing trade in needed medicines and supplies.

The former Nigerian finance minister and senior World Bank executive was appointed on Monday in a consensus process and starts her new job on March 1.

“The WTO can contribute so much more to helping stop the pandemic,” Okonjo-Iweala said in an interview at her home in a suburb of Washington.

We Can Start the Era of Liberal Dominance

The greatest success of Reagan/Bush was recalibrating America politically in such a way that (white) liberal office seekers shied away from their liberalism in order to not offend "Reagan Democrats" and other centrist voters that fell for Reagan's BS. It turned the Gross Obstructionist Party the default choice for middle-of-the-road white voters who have looked the other way as Republicans have shot up the deficit, gutted regulations, eliminated consumer protection, started costly wars, systematically scrubbed voters of color off voter rolls coast-to-coast, and became the party of choice for avowed white supremacists. There is not a single GOP policy that has made life better for middle class Republican voters, yet they continued to support conservative malfeasance over and over because conservatives PRESENT themselves as stronger and more confident. It's time to flip that script!

Let's start talking about the BIDEN REPUBLICANS - all those Republican voters who are so vocally nauseated that their party has become so open and honest over its embrace of white nationalism, they can't stand it anymore. Let's do this over the next four years as Trump's reputation as a former president sinks to subterranean levels. We should refer to conservatives who finally came around to choosing country over party in 2020 as Biden Republicans just as we refer to those corrupt Trump hangers-on as Trump Republicans. In the nest forty years, "Trump Republican" will be a Scarlet Letter stamped on any Republican who throws their hat in the ring (Hello, Tom Cotton).

It is time to make Republicanism a mark of shame and weakness. If there is one benefit of the morass of the past four years is that Republicans have made themselves so obviously repugnant and incompetent. They showed their hand and we shouldn't let anyone forget. Let's talk about how Biden won over the Biden Republicans again and again and again then watch the rats jump ship.

Just spitballin' here.

"Mr. Vice President...

"Right now there are thousands of hardworking parents, who don't want their healthcare or their children's healthcare taken away. They know that you have no plan and they don't appreciate you calling them 'Leftists' and 'Socialists'. There are farmers who want something done about climate change to remove the uncertainty of floods and drought. They don't appreciate you calling them 'Leftists' and 'Socialists'. There are average Americans who want a robust system of social services so police can focus on crime. They don't appreciate you calling them 'Leftists' and 'Socialists'. There are millions of people watching who want to uphold Roe v. Wade. That doesn't make them 'Leftists' and 'Socialists'. There are millions of people watching, some of who voted for you, who are fed up with your failures. That does not make them 'Leftists' and 'Socialists'. They are just Americans who want what's best for our country. So stop calling them names."

What I'd Say If I Was Veep Nominee Harris

"I've been dealing with bullies all my life and I won't say they lost, but I will say I won. From the time I could walk and play I was ridiculed for being a girl, for looking different, for being black, for having parents who immigrated from another country. Once it started, it never stopped, but here I am to tell you that almost all of those people are in my rearview mirror. Almost.

"Like all those bullies I've left behind, Trump is trying to scare people with the fact that my parents came to America to study and build their lives. He says that it disqualifies me. The truth is it disqualifies him because he clearly hasn't read the Constitution. I am an American who was born in America. I have read the Constitution and I am here to put this unqualified bully in all of our rearview mirrors."
