SMH. What in the world?

If you were thinking the GOP senator was Jeff Flake, you’re wrong.

I mean, you’re probably right, but in this specific instance, you’re wrong.

From Daily Caller:

Once briefly one of President Donald Trump’s staunchest supporters, outgoing Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker would not say if the president should face a primary challenger in 2020.

Corker: “I do think we’ve got to remember what the Republican Party is. What’s happening right now is not the standard Republicanism that we’ve had in our country for many, many years and it’s very different.

[…]

Corker refused to rule out a challenge of his own to Trump, while also declining to say if the president should face a primary challenger at all.

I want to get away from here and think about that. I think it’s important to remind people that we’re going through an anomaly right now as it relates to much of the standard Republican focus that’s been around for a long time.

Retiring RINO Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) is considering a 2020 primary challenge against President Trump.

Jeff Flake is not ruling out a GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump in 2020, telling Politico and The Hill Friday that “somebody needs to run.”

Flake: “I’ve not ruled it out. I’ve not ruled it in. Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side.

I hope somebody does [run], just to remind Republicans what it means to be conservative and what it means to be decent. We’ve got to bring that back. You can whip up the base for a cycle or two but it wears thin. Anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.

Trump has a few words for Flake.

Trump: “I retired Jeff Flake. I’m very proud of it. I did the country a great service”

Flake partnered with Democrat Sen. Chris Coons (DE) to get back at Trump.

Flake’s anti-Trump agenda continues to this day and will probably continue for years to come.

From The Hill:

Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) on Thursday urged fellow Republicans to condemn an immigration-themed video President Trump released as part of an effort to stoke his base ahead of next week’s midterms, calling the ad “sickening.”

WATCH:

Meanwhile, President Trump’s overall approval rating just hit 50%, which is quite high considering the majority of news coverage of the commander-in-chief is negative.

An even more interesting statistic should have Democrats very worried about the midterm elections.

Black support for Trump has now hit a whopping 40%.

Minnesota Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar may run for president in 2020.

Yeah, for real.

I don’t get it, either.

After a federal judge declared Obamacare unconstitutional, Klobuchar went on CBS to claim America needs “universal health care.”

Run on that, Amy. See how it works out for you.

From Free Beacon:

“Face the Nation” host Margret Brennan asked Klobuchar if Democrats should now move to push Medicare for all.

“You heard some disagreement among Republicans how to do that, also disagreement within the Democratic Party on how to handle health care. Former Attorney General Eric Holder says it’s time now to move to some version of Medicare for all and end this nonsense,” Brennan said. “Do you agree with him?”

Klobuchar: “We need universal health care. There are many ways to get there. That is one of them. The other is to at least expand Medicare to age 55. There’s a number of bills that I’m part of, including allowing expansion of Medicaid, which I think is something we’re not talking enough about, that [Democratic] Senator Schatz from Hawaii is leading.

The ruling was absurd. Justice Roberts, in conservative Court, has already ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional, unlike what Mr. Miller said. And in fact, you can have part of it not exist and you can still have the rest of it protect Americans. And that is exactly where this is headed.

THE NUMBERS ARE IN: Florida has Lowest COVID Rate in the Nation

Well, would you look at that.

Published

on

If Governor RonDesantis isn’t planning to shove this in everyone’s face for a while, we’d be surprised.

Florida, a state that has been the bane of the liberals’ existence in recent months due to their freedom-first coronavirus precautions, now get to gloat.  And bigly.

In mid-August, Florida was averaging about 25,000 new cases a day, or about 116 for every 100,000 residents. That was the worst rate in the U.S. — and one of the worst in the world. Awash in the hypercontagious Delta variant, the Sunshine State became one of the epicenters of the global pandemic.

During the past two months, however, Florida’s daily average has plummeted by more than 90 percent, to about 1,700 cases, or eight for every 100,000 residents. That’s roughly half of California’s current COVID rate and less than a quarter of Vermont’s. Hawaii (with nine cases for every 100,000 residents) is the only other state in single digits.

DeSantis has been absolutely adamant about allowing Floridians to choose the level of risk that they wish to take as it pertains to COVID-19, and has barred businesses and institutions from enacting vaccine or mask mandates.  This has gained him a great deal of criticism from the liberal left, who have insisted that the Governor is being reckless.

Search Warrant in Baldwin Shooting Reveals Blatant Negligence

This is unconscionable.

Published

on

Any time that someone dies on a movie set, you have to know that something has gone terribly, unforgivably wrong.

These sets are microcosms of the work of enormous and wealthy companies who are lawyered up to the gills, wading around in an industry where someone else’s misfortune is not to be squandered by the competition.

Nothing should ever go wrong on a movie set, if not for these simple facts alone.

That is why the latest details in the shooting death of a cinematographer last week are so damning.

The crew member responsible for overall safety on the set of Rust has admitted he didn’t properly check the gun that Alec Baldwin fired on October 21 and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“During an interview with David Halls, when Affiant asked David about the safety protocol on set in regards to firearms, he advised, ‘I check the barrel for obstructions, most of the time there’s no live fire, she [Hannah] opens the hatch and spins the drum, and I say cold gun on set,’” reveals an affidavit successfully submitted by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office for a new search warrant issued today (read the search warrant here).

“David advised when Hannah showed him the firearm before continuing rehearsal, he could only remember seeing three rounds,” the filing adds, noting the interaction that afternoon last week between the First AD and armorer Hannah Gutierrez.

And then…

“He advised he should have checked all of them, but didn’t, and couldn’t recall if she spun the drum,” the affidavit bluntly states of the crew member who has emerged at the core of this tragedy.

No charges have yet to be filed in response to the incident, but prosecutors have made it very clear that they haven’t ruled it out.
