It Appears that President Biden and his Team are Better Negotiators on the Debt Limit than We Gave Them Credit for

Last night, Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Joe Biden, after a reported hour-and-a-half phone call between the two, concluded a deal in principle that had been mostly worked out by their negotiating teams, to raise the national debt ceiling in exchange for spending and other measures sought by the former Party of Lincoln. It appears that with the details of the deal that were leaked over the last ten to twelve hours, worries about President Biden and his team's

Turning Point USA Goes Full White Christian Nationalism (Christo-Fascism)

This is not new to anyone familiar with Turning Point USA working closely with the Pentecostal Dream City Church Assemblies of God mega church in the greater Phoenix Area. (The Assemblies of God church considers salvation, baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, divine healing and the Second Coming of Christ to be its four core beliefs.)

There is just a group of conspiracy theorists in this country who are fucking nuts and beyond redemption with logic, or persuasion or education. I had to research this. "NCSWIC" is shorthand for Nothing Can Stop What is Coming, a QAnon phrase signaling belief that the Deep State and its collaborators will soon be arrested, as it is inevitable, i.e., "the

President Biden Needs to Stop Negotiating with the McCarthy-Trump-Led MAGA-Terrorist Economic Hostage Takers

It is time for President Biden to step away from negotiating with the McCarthy-Trump-Led MAGA Terrorist Economic Hostage Takers over the debt ceiling. It is evident from the last 24 to 48 hours in reporting from various media sources that Traitor and Trumpist Enabler Kevin I needed 15 rounds of votes to become Speaker McCarthy is more concerned with keeping the gavel even if his right-wing extremist apostates in the House, who have been openly encouraged by the twice

‘Traitor’ Kevin McCarthy Whines About The White House When It Is His Intransigent Extremist House Freedom (sic) Caucus Which Is To Blame

"Traitor" Kevin McCarthy puts on a show for the lazy media, claiming that Republicans have put forward a budget (they have not) and that they are negotiating in good faith on the federal debt ceiling (a flat out lie). "We are being reasonable, the White House is not." (Total Bullshit). Republicans have taken the federal debt ceiling hostage as a means of demanding ransom, extortion really, demanding that Democrats concede to their extremist demands for which Republicans cannot convince

Don’t Make Vacation Plans In August – Georgia Election Criminal Indictments Are Coming

Don't make any vacation plans in August.
