- Within a year of the 1995 shutdowns, the @HouseGOP Majority was reelected for the first time since the 1920's; Senate GOP picked up two seats.
- A year after the 2013 shutdowns, the GOP picked up 13 seats in the House; won control of the Senate.
Stop buying WSJ/NRO defeatism!
In 2016, Trump ran on prosecuting HRC; he won.
House Dems impeached Trump and won the WH/Senate within the year.
Biden raided Trump in August 2022 and softened Dem losses by November.
Shoring up your own side by being bold works better than trying to win "independents."

@julie_kelly2 @Cernovich @brithume @JudgeJeanine @greg_price11 @KurtSchlichter @BasedMikeLee @tedcruz @baseballcrank @RichLowry Americans repeatedly mock how regimes have seats on Rights commissions at the UN, but around the globe the masses are bewildered how the US claims the mantle of Rights, Freedom & Democracy when it steamrolls countries abroad (with a deep cost on civilians) and opponents at home.
@julie_kelly2 @Cernovich @brithume @JudgeJeanine @greg_price11 @KurtSchlichter @BasedMikeLee @tedcruz @baseballcrank @RichLowry The prosecutor said today people popping off on J6 was with the same purpose as using bombs.
Um, well, ya. Not using bombs, guns or even fire (which was used during the late May 2020 insurrection at the WH) is what makes a mass casualty terror act different than this.

Cons who YELL that impeachment hearings will help Biden (the target of such action) also YELL that the prosecution of Trump will damage Trump (the target of such action).
Oh, Dems won the WH 10 months after impeaching Trump!

Cons who claim that the Trump Indictments are Self-Inflicted are the same who opposed and/or didn't advocate for prosecutions of HRC and the Bidens by the Trump DOJ under the Self Inflicted Rule. It was Banana Republic stuff to even talk about it.

Among Independents in a You Gov/CBS poll following the J6 indictment:
A bigger concern...
41% J6 Charges are political.
38% Trump wanted to overturn election
50% (yes 50%) say Trump's post-elex steps were legal and/or no a plan to stay in office.

Independents in a You Gov/CBS poll following J6 indictment:
48% do NOT uphold rule of law (52% say it does).
53% do NOT defend democracy (47% it does).
63% (yes 63%) an attempt to stop Trump's campaign!

What do Jack Smith and Andrew Weissman have in common?
They both lost at SCOTUS in 9-0 rulings highly publicized cases, and/but both those reversal were years after the publicity/political damage was done.
Which is why SC Muller retained AW and Garland retained Smith.
SC Mueller and AG Garland know that Weissman and Smith had flops on Appeal/SCOTUS but those came years after it mattered. At the time it was relevant, these power abusing ruthless barbarians destroyed people with 1,000 paper-cuts which is what Mueller/Garland needed/need.

Latest by Me: Anti-Trump Conservatives are the Mark and They Don't Know It

None of the Cons who claim the prosecutions of Trump are self inflicted, can see a world where the Bush Admin went after Gore for trying to overturn the FL election or to raid/arrest Obama whose admin corruptly weaponized the most powerful arms of gov against a political rival.

I didn't advise @RonDeSantis to run for #GOP2024. But it's absurd that he "needs" to shake things up simply because he didn't change the polling landscape in 6 weeks of a 6-8 month operation and he is a candidate that raised more money per day in Q2 than front runner Trump.
Trump won WH once; his midterm was better than Clinton/Obama; 2020 was lost by 22K votes across 3 states combined, he left the GOP with more seats after 6 years than any recent POTUS. Yet the easily-propagandized wing of GOP was sold that Trump bad for '24.
This wing backs RDS.

The prison guards are putting people into the SHU indiscriminately, yet the inmates are fighting about AI photos as if it matters.
None of Hillary's underlinings who railroaded investigators regarding classified docs were indicted on the docs or obstruction yet her fans really think the Feds were unfair to her tether than acknowledging the pass.
Meanwhile, the Biden DOJ clips a former POTUS over documents.

Total House seats lost during midterm elections combined:
The "chance encounter" being of chance where Papado would just so meet a ranking diplomat and just so spill beans and said diplomat would just so be worried to "report" it, and Feds would just be so worried, never made sense.
That Papado encounter in the was part of the sting!
Your hot take on Russia Collusion 3-6 years after it mattered most politically is totally useless if and since you fold on the current-current thing and you will fold on the next-current thing when it will pop up. Ref: @benshapiro, @brithume et al.

@CommishSmith EXACTLY. In FACT, had Trump spent this money from his campaign the accusation would be that he is using campaign funds for personal/business concerns. Candidates can't pay for hairdos with campaign funds despite it being "triggered" by the campaign. Same thing here.
@CommishSmith CREW filed a complaint against the RNC for spending $150K on clothing for Palin. The FEC ruled it did not violate personal use ban because that provision applies only to candidate committees; not party committees. It would be against rules for Trump to use campaign money here!

It's funny if not sad how the likes of @emeriticus@bonchieredstate et al think this this is about one person rather than just a progression of abuses of Stats power. A decade ago it was the IRS harassing Tea Party groups and a video producer arrested to save Obama in 2012.
It was the opinion of @benshapiro@RyanGirdusky that the GOP should not hammer the #BidenRaidOnTrump in the lead up to the midterms because this means talking about Trump -- As if Dems and their media need GOP help to talk about Trump and as if ignoring an abusive raid is cool.
The 2nd and 3d largest bank collapse in US history happened in the same 48 and another collapse which would in size replace one of the first collapses, has been stopped by emergency Fed measures and unprecedented deposits by fellow banks!

Libs try to win elections by all means possible.
When they fail, they unleash the judicial and administrative state to get their way on policy and crush their political opponents.
When they lose there, they take to the streets to get their way.
Cons write tweets and articles how this/that isn't fair and why their side needs to fold on topics that a mere 10 years earlier was mainstream on the other side.
Meanwhile, libs unleash anarchy and chaos to get their way while claiming that it's merely a defense of democracy.

A month ago, the catalytic converter of my leased vehicle was stolen and @mitsucars does not have a new one avail potentially until August. The car is of limited use.
- The insurer covers only the converter replacement and a vehicle for a few weeks; not 6 months.
- The dealership that leased me the vehicle said take it up with the bank.
- The bank says if I want to turn in the lease early, Ill need to pay all outstanding months on the lease.

Understand the rules.
Job gains under Biden are his credit from his 10th day in office (Feb 2021),
Russia's invasion of Ukraine (month 13); OH train derailment (month 25), and the second largest bank collapse in US history (month 26), are all Trump's fault.
Now (as in 36 hours after the collapse of SVB), you need to scroll through 37 items on CNN's home page to reach the bank collapse news.
Soon enough it will rise but only after they have an anti-Trump hook in there.
First don't report. Second, blame Trump when you do.
Too many visibly Jewish people suffered in silence from this in recent weeks and months (while reading in the Times that they are NY's biggest problem). People just want to be on their way and not make a scene which may cause them to be detained too.

When @NikkiHaley says that the GOP lost 7 of the 8 last POTUS elections she is admitting that the GOPs problems pre-dates Trump who at least won the WH in one of those 8 elections; a win which gave her a UN Post that she uses now as a reason to run. Same goes for @mikepompeo.
The same goes for @Mike_Pence: They all use their Trump-given public posts as a stepping stone for 2024 while simultaneously claiming that Trump (who gave the GOP 1 of its 3 WH wins the last 30 years), can't win POTUS elections.
