The next two

the market historically likes, and with former President Trump’s announcement
last night that he is running, the Democrats and Media will continue to suffer
from severe TDS. It will be interesting to see who comes out in support and who
he has lost. I though his

was extremely Presidential sounding and made the points I wanted to
hear. There is a lot of grass between now and November 2024, though. One thing
is clear, and that is that several states need to fix their voting problems. Mass
absentee mailouts and ballot harvesting are rife with opportunities for

results for perhaps weeks. My predictions were way off, and predicated on more
sanity than some blue states displayed. There is an old adage that stupidity is

someone who broke into his home in San Francisco and attacked him with a
hammer. Police came, caught the perpetrator, David DePape, and Paul was
transported to the hospital where he underwent surgery for a cracked cranium
and injuries to his arms and hands. The prognosis is for full recovery. Both
sides of the political spectrum were quick to condemn the attack. Ex-President
Obama, Hillary Clinton and current “President” Joe Biden immediately decried it
as being a right-wing influenced attack. There seemed to be a few holes in the

Let’s
call a spade a spade. The Green New Deal, or as I prefer, the Green Nude Eel,
is not going to happen in our or our children’s lifetimes. It is a scam designed
to line the pockets of politicians and their supporters and promoted by people
who haven’t the slightest grasp of what is involved. Ever wonder why you don’t
see any real debates on the subject between supporters and deniers? It is
because the narrative would be quickly destroyed. Does anyone with more than a
room temperature IQ believe California can support a populace forced to drive
EV’s that they can’t even recharge without crashing the grid? Ask one of those
dolts where the power comes from to charge the vehicles. Can you spell C-o-a-l-?

The
pendulum seems to have begun its swing, beginning in Europe with Poland and
Hungary and now Sweden and Italy.
Liberals are Freaking Out Over Italy (love that picture of Orban and
Meloni). As Steven Hayward points out, “Populism” means whenever the wrong
person or cause wins a free election. The corollary is that every Republican
candidate for president is Hitler, and now we learn that every Italian
conservative is Mussolini.”
My new wish is to see a summit meeting in 2024
that includes either President Trump or DeSantis and British Prime Minister
Truss, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban, Italian Prime Minister Meloni and Polish
Prime Minister Morawiecki. Perhaps by then either Le Pen or Zemmour from France
can join in. Can you even imagine the head spinning that would take place?

continue to believe that the midterm elections are going to be probably the
largest electoral rebuke of a ruling party in our history. The ABC
News/Washington Post poll indicates that
only 35% of Democrats want Joe to run

probably overstated by
those who tell pollsters they will

Like
most of you probably, I was a big fan of Gen. (Mad Dog) Mattis initially when
he first appeared in the limelight and hoped he would be a great Secretary of
Defense when President Trump named him. He turned out to be a disappointment. I
read his autobiography, and it caused me to dial back my enthusiasm for him and
to realize he wasn’t the renaissance warrior he was touted as. His involvement
in the Theranos scam further hurt his reputation. But the thing that really
changed my feeling about him was his involvement in a miscarriage of woke
justice against his own Marines. I have followed this story and this article is
a good description of what happened.

ON THE ONE HAND, THIS IS
ENTIRELY TRUE.
 On the other hand, NeverTrump Republicans, heavily
represented at National Review, told us that this geriatric incompetent was
indisputably a better choice than Trump, who was neither geriatric nor
incompetent. What’s more, this was a view rooted largely in aesthetics, class
loyalty, and self-importance. Everything that has gone wrong in the Biden era
was predictable, and in fact was predicted, by those not blinded by
Trump-hatred.

Finally, the truth has come out about the 10-year old little girl from Ohio
who was apparently raped when she was 9 and was able to have an abortion in
Indiana. An arrest has been made after her mother made a report to Franklin
County Children Services. The report was on June 22nd. Why the wait?
The alleged rapist turned out to be an illegal
alien
from Guatemal named Gershon Fuentes
and bail has been set at $2 million while a DNA test is being performed. Bail?
Are you kidding? An illegal alien accused of raping a 9-year old and Judge
Cynthia Ebner doesn’t think he is a flight risk? Meanwhile, I assume the

I suggested last
week that the steep slope of the presidential approval ratings clearly implied
that we were about to go below 30%. Voila!
This week it hits 29% overall, with the key independent demographic hitting
19%. Interestingly, Democrats are slightly below 63%, down from 88% a year ago.
What could be causing this?
Sheila Jackson Lee has the answer. Summer Heat. LOLOL.
