Kamala Harris

As we approach the 100th day of the Biden-Harris administration, politicians and pundits alike are preparing for a massive wave of criticism and/or praise, as they gather up the myriad of footage of promises made by the candidates as to what they would be accomplishing during this arbitrary time period.

And, in taking stock of just who well our elected officials are performing, many will take into consideration the approval ratings that come along with having a job in the public space.

In the case of Vice President Kamala Harris, the numbers aren’t looking all that good.

When a Fox News poll asked respondents Sunday whether they have a generally favorable or unfavorable opinion of the first female Vice President, Harris received a 49 percent approval rating.

Pence in April 2017 had a 50 percent approval rating.

Despite being one of the first serious contenders to drop out of the Democrat primary before being tapped for vice president, Harris was tasked by President Joe Biden with handling the southern border crisis, an issue upon which, according to the Fox News poll, the president has a weighty 34 percent approval rating.

Harris has yet to visit the border after having been assigned to the task, a fact that has been repeatedly noted by her political opposition.

Furthermore, the Vice President appears to be equating the border crisis with climate change – a move that could be designed to bring the radical leftists of the Democratic Party into the immigration fold.

Cuomo Announces Bribery Meant to Bump Up Vaccination Numbers

Local leaders are banging their heads against the wall trying to find creative new ways to circumvent vaccine hesitancy.

America is on the precipice of a grand recovery, the likes of which we haven’t experienced in over a century, but some authorities are concerned that a slowing of our vaccination rates could set the whole house of cards aflame. Vaccine hesitancy has long been an issue in this effort, with US citizens having long been distrustful of both the government and the pharmaceutical industry, (often for good reason).  This, combined with the recent news of a number of adverse side effects, has driven participation in the vaccination drive down drastically, forcing a number of local leaders to take drastic action.  On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the Mets and Yankees Major League Baseball teams would give free tickets to fans who got vaccinated at the ball parks before games. And he’s not the only one. New Jersey and Connecticut are partnering with bars and brew pubs to offer a free drink to people who are newly vaccinated, while Maryland announced it would give $100 to state employees who get inoculated. In Colorado, a non-profit organization is planning to reach out to rural conservatives – a group that includes many vaccine skeptics – at county fairs and rodeos. Immunize Colorado also will use pop-up and Zoom events to appeal directly to immigrant groups and communities of color, where issues of access and distrust of the medical establishment have prevented many people from rolling up their sleeves. The worry is that vaccine hesitancy could lead to a delay in reaching “herd immunity” in the United States, which is necessary in order to prevent further mutations of the COVID-19 virus.

Ron DeSantis Trolls Mainstream Media with Bill Signing Stunt

The outrage came quickly.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has long been a thorn in the side of the liberal left, and this week is certainly no different. DeSantis on Thursday signed one of the strictest voting enforcement bills in the nation, in a move that has been applauded by conservative groups around the country. Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida signed new voting legislation into law on Thursday. It enacts restrictions on voting by mail and at drop boxes, which Democrats and activists warn could suppress voter turnout. DeSantis, a Republican, signed the bill, which was passed by the GOP-controlled legislature last month, live on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” during an interview with the show’s hosts. Throughout the week, the governor had been holding more formal bill-signing ceremonies across the state as he signed bills into law. DeSantis argued that the bill protects the “integrity and transparency” of Florida’s elections and that after the 2020 election, which was successful, the changes will keep the state “ahead of the curve,” echoing the message Republicans have used for months to push back on criticism of their legislation. But DeSantis’ choice to bar all media outlets except for Fox News was controversial. https://twitter.com/stevebousquet/status/1390268388493103104?s=20 https://twitter.com/jayobtv/status/1390274698370551810?s=20 https://twitter.com/RedWingGrips/status/1390300886031798272?s=20 https://twitter.com/stevebousquet/status/1390285632761733123?s=20 DeSantis also made headlines on Friday for providing every law enforcement officer in the state with a $1,000 bonus.
