Charles Koch Issues Warning to GOP Candidates. Steve Bannon Had a Few Words of His Own in Response.

Published

Billionaire donor Charles Koch recently spoke with reporters where he shared a message he has for GOP candidates, stating that they shouldn’t take for granted his backing them with his vast fortune for their upcoming campaigns.

Koch went on to state that he would be watching these individuals closely to see whether or not they would keep their promises of fiscal responsibility.

His statement, however, did not seem to sit well with former Trump strategist Steve Bannon who launched a counterstrike of his own.

In a separate speech during the forum, Koch promised an audience, “We are going…to hold people responsible for their commitments.”

He later told the media, “I regret some of the [lawmakers] we have supported…we’re gonna more directly deal with that and hold people accountable.”

Koch specifically expressed concern over the ongoing trade battles the U.S. has engaged in with other countries, saying that “if it’s severe enough,” President Trump’s actions could cause a recession. He said that when it comes to trade, “we should just get rid of all barriers, except for things that will hurt people. We should let all goods in.”

Not everyone is happy with Koch’s comments from over the weekend. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon told Politico in response, “What [the Kochs] have to do is shut up and get with the program, OK? And here’s the program: Ground game to support Trump’s presidency and program, [and] victory on Nov. 6.”

Bannon added, “Charles Koch is a good man, but 100 days before an election that will determine the direction of the country is not the time to tell us that you are prepared to work with Democrats that support parts of your progressive agenda.

“It’s wrong, it’s stupid and it shows contempt for the hardworking grassroots folks that delivered the victory that go your tax cut.”

Koch is definitely not taking the right approach to this situation, especially if he’s willing to sellout his own values and principles just to spite individuals not towing the line on his own personal agenda. This guy pretty much embodies everything wrong with modern politics.

The conservative movement cannot afford to be so badly divided this close to an election cycle starting. It’s time to unite together, to actually boldly stand for truth, justice, and liberty without compromise.

If we want to continue seeing this nation get back on track, this is what it’s going to take.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

on

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
