MSNBC said today that “Herschel
Walker is what the GOP wants out of its negroes”, and that “his campaign is an insult to black people.”

they can’t just say why his ideas aren’t the best ideas.

Reading comprehension is not your strong point

“ The two sacred cows that Republicans will protect at all costs - the drug industry and the oil industry - lose out if the Inflation Reduction Act passes.

That’s why the GOP is furious.”

You really are just a blind follower

Since we don't control the air, our good air decided to float over to China's bad air, so when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move," Walker said. "So it moves over to our good air space. Then, now, we got we to clean that back up."

At one time science said, man came from apes. Did it not?" Walker said at Sugar Hill Church in Northern Gwinnett County, outside of Atlanta, Ga., on March 13. "If that is true, why are there still apes? Think about it."
Or

And I want to apologize to the African-American community, because the fatherless home is a major, major problem,' Walker said in a September 2020 interview, adding that he had been 'like a father to some of those kids that had never had fathers,'

Yet he has one he’s never seen but forced to pay child support but hea stuff happens




He’s the candidate just because he’s black . And most black Americans see it for just that !

You forgot about increase funding for the agency which makes sure people pay the taxes they owe.

Four and a half years ago Marjorie Taylor Greene was talking on Facebook Live about how "Q is a patriot" to an audience of hundreds.

Notice that the open use of "Christian Nationalism" has passed its trial balloon phase and has now officially slithered its way into the MAGA glossary.

Now she's the highest profile freshman member of Congress and hanging out with Trump and Tucker Carlson. What a Party

With Meijer getting run out of the party in Michigan, the MAGA GOP successfully reinforces its clear message: there is no place in the current GOP for principled truth-tellers. It is a party for liars.

Far-Left Commentator Slurs Black Republican Senate Candidate

the problem is the commentators are black themselves

Raphael Warnock wants to debate Herschel Walker. Republicans smell a trap.

NEW Monmouth Poll on Americans' preference for control of Congress:

Democrats: 50%, up from 44% in May.

Republicans: 43%, down from 48% in May.

What happened to the ‘Red wave’?

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) has suggested that Social Security and Medicare be eliminated as federal entitlement programs, and that they should instead become programs approved by Congress on an annual basis as discretionary spending.


And GOP supporters love to say it won’t happen


Then when it’s said out loud by those they elect

It’s Crickets

US primaries: Rusty Bowers, who defied Trump, loses re-election bid

And the GOP base voters again putting man before country and party and punishing truth honesty and integrity .

All while flying American flags yelling Freedom!

Boom. June payrolls added 528,000 jobs — more than *double* estimates of 250,000 new jobs. Unemployment rate drops to 3.5 from 3.6%.

The labor market shows no signs of cooling just yet.

For months now, the Governors of Texas and Arizona have been sending charter buses full of migrants and refugees to Washington D.C.'s Union Station, just a few blocks from the Capitol Building.


Texas Governor Greg Abbott says he started sending the buses to D.C. because the Biden administration attempted to lift the pandemic-era emergency Title 42 order that allowed the U.S. to deny migrants entry.

yet title 42 hasn't been lifted

According to Gov. Abbott's office, more than 6,100 migrants have been bused to D.C. from Texas alone and he's proud of that and showing his base he's owing the libs


Gov. Abbott's plan to bus migrants to D.C. "political theater". and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey playing along

what's next tattooed numbers ..

So the above is no great surprise seeing Texas already laid out the red carpet for like minded Orban

Gov. Greg Abbott and Hungarian Prime Minister headline first day of conservative conference in Dallas


But Orban has found defenders among prominent American conservatives Tucker Carlson and Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance.
Trump called Orban his “friend” and said he valued his perspective. “Few people know as much about what is going on in the world today,” Trump said.


Matt Schlapp, who leads the American Conservative Union that organizes CPAC, has defended Orban’s invitation in the name of free speech.

The crowd booed when Orban brought up George Soros, what a surprise
He concluded by looking to elections that will be held in both the United States and European Union in 2024.

“These two locations will define the two fronts in the battle being fought for Western civilization,” Orban said. “Today we hold neither of them yet. We need both. You have two years to get ready.”



Republicans of Old wouldn't be caught dead in the same room as Orban But know they dont want to be seen not by his side

interesting....

"Much of the press coverage was similarly straight out of the Biden White House’s hymnal. But a closer look at the numbers suggests why a lot of workers are not feeling so thrilled right now. Comparing the seasonally adjusted numbers for July 2022 with the previous month, we see:

71,000 fewer people working full-time jobs;
384,000 more people working part-time jobs. There was an overall growth of 303,000 more people working part-time who would prefer full-time, driven by a growth of 331,000 more people in full-time jobs being cut back to part-time (what the report refers to as “slack” work);
92,000 more people working multiple jobs;
279,000 fewer people self-employed; and
63,000 fewer people in the civilian labor force, after a decline of 353,000 in June.

Senate Republicans have just blocked the $35/month insulin price cap for Americans on private insurance from Democrats' spending bill.

Here’s what happens when folks can’t afford insulin: they try to ration it. When that happens their sugars rise to levels where their cells, starved of glucose, switch to using ketones for intracellular energy. Their blood pH drops, they start breathing faster and faster to maintain a neutral pH. It’s unsustainable, the pH drops to 7.1, 6.9, 6.7… they become unresponsive, they have a seizure. If they’re lucky someone finds them and calls 911. They come to the ED where, because the high glucose is drawing fluid into the blood, they have peed out gallons of fluid. We slam them with fluids, bicarbonate, insulin once we know their potassium levels. They go to the ICU where care costs 10,000 dollars a day. They stay for days, weeks sometimes. Even, if you’re heartless enough to ignore the human cost, the “cost cost” of What we’re doing to diabetics is insane and stupid. It makes no sense. It’s inefficient. It costs more to fix DKA then it does to prevent them DKA. Way more.
Easy medical decision. Easy moral decision. Easy economic decision. And yet…

in most cases they did and continue to do it to themselves...

Although not everyone with type 2 diabetes is overweight, obesity and an inactive lifestyle are two of the most common causes of type 2 diabetes. These things are responsible for about 90% to 95% of diabetes cases in the United States.

So let’s punish them it’s their fault. ? So pay more for your insulin instead of healthy food. Is that the conservatives position?

Republicans blocked it for their donors and drug companies . over American citizens classic

If Republicans retake control of the House after the 2022 midterms, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., vows to bring in the intelligence officials who allegedly knew of Hunter Biden's shady foreign business deals.


So now shady is being illegal?

Guess due process won’t exist under Republicans

That’s the mid term strategy

Truth or satire?

Lindsey Graham on CSPAN: “ The Democrats are trying to attack us over this insulin thing. But next time you’re in a long line at the grocery, ask yourself: is it REALLY a good thing for more people to have life-saving medication? I thought liberals said we’re overpopulated.”
