Mount Rushmore then and now – Politics Article

The Washington Free Beacon has put together the SUPERcuts video below illustrating the Orwellian revision of Mount Rushmore. Past statements pretending to admiration are going down the memory hole. Oh, Big Brother Sibster. And don’t forget: IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. If we didn’t understand before, we should be getting a handle on the importance of this axiom right about now now. Perhaps what we have here is progress of a kind. At this point the Democrats and their media adjunct don’t…

Contrived Hickenlooper memo reveals an insecure campaign team – Politics Article

John Hickenlooper emerged from the U.S. Senate primary election so insecure and bruised his campaign has since contrived a proclamation of propaganda disguised as an election strategy memo to rally their own troops.

Flu Season is Here Again But, Can you afford the treatment? – Politics Article

Last November I faithfully took the flu shot as I do every year. It didn’t work. I was felled by the flu in March and spent a week in the hospital, in isolation. I really thought that this would be the end. Fortunately, it wasn’t. It took me a little over a month to fully recover and a few months more to pay off the hospital bills, even though I had Medicare and a Medicare advantage plan.Those frigging deductibles can…

Does Robert Jenrick Work for… Boris Johnson? – Politics Article

Build, Build, Build is Boris’s big policy. Yet is Robert Jenrick’s MHCLG the smooth planning machine needed to roll out the PM’s vision? Hardly. Constructing Britain’s hospitals and homes will involve huge amounts of carbon-intensive steel and cement. Yet getting rid of carbon is the First Commandment of the nation’s new religion. And MHCLG is paralysed by fear of the climate priests of Twitter… However a poll out today shows that ministers have nothing to dread. Because XR – just…

Will Kristi Noem Be On the National Ticket in 2024? – Politics Article

The short answer is: I hope so. One way or another, 2024 will be a vitally important election. If President Trump is re-elected, as I think he probably will be, the presidency will be open in 2024. If Trump loses, a senile Joe Biden will be ripe for the plucking in 2024, assuming he is still alive and functioning by then. It isn’t too early to think about the Republican ticket four years from now. It’s no secret that I…
