New Poll Reveals Level of Optimism Throughout America

And pollsters are employing some dirty tricks to try and give the credit to Joe Biden.

As many Americans are keenly aware, our political leaders have no qualms with using and abusing world events to bolster their own image, and this week appears to be no exception.

This is a time in the United States where hope and optimism are blossoming with a swiftness.  We’re witnessing a stock market and an economy that just refuses to quit, all while we continue to see states and cities reopen after a long pandemic downturn.

The hope is in the air, for all intents and purposes, and pollsters are now cashing in on this feeling in order to give Joe Biden’s administration a little manufactured boost.

President Joe Biden completes his first hundred days in office with a country that is more optimistic about the coming year, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans (64%) are optimistic about the direction of the country in the poll, which was conducted by Ipsos in partnership with ABC News using Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel.

The last time the country came close to that level of optimism about the coming year was in December 2006, when 61% said they were optimistic about where the country was headed, according to previous ABC News/Washington Post polls. Shortly before the 2016 election catapulted Donald Trump to the Oval Office, only 42% of Americans were optimistic about the future, compared to 52% who were pessimistic.

Of course, there are some serious semantics gymnastics at play here, with the left tying “Biden’s First 100 Days” into a broader, far more widespread optimism that exists independent of who the President is.

This is a massaged narrative, no doubt about it.

Minnesota ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Films Himself Stealing Vaccines from Health Workers

WOW!

America is on a path to a grand economic recovery in 2021, with much of the success of this move hinging on whether or not we can convince enough folks to get vaccinated so that herd immunity is declared. Of course, as with anything in the land of the free, there are plenty of us who just aren’t going to go along with the program.  That’s the beauty of liberty:  You are your own unique individual, and you have the inalienable right to live your life however you wish, just so long as you don’t make a victim of someone else in the process. And so our health professionals are now encumbered with the issue of vaccine hesitancy, as more and more Americans find themselves concerned over the speed at which these vaccines were developed. Some have even taken their concern over these inoculations to the extreme, as evidenced by the latest news out of Minnesota. A 32-year-old St. Paul man has posted multiple Facebook videos of himself stealing Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines by pretending he wants to get vaccinated and walking out with the vials. Thomas E. Humphrey said on the videos he’s a member of the sovereign citizen movement, which is an anti-government extremist group that believes they are sovereign from the U.S. He also said on a video that he lost his business and home last year due to pandemic restrictions, and now lives in a van with his dog. He says on another video he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but disagreed with the diagnosis. Humphrey posted videos of himself walking into an Allina Health vaccination site in Oakdale and leaving with a vial of Pfizer vaccine, calling it poison. The following day, he posted a video of himself taking a vial of Johnson &…

McCarthy Defies Trump and MAGA, Says ‘No One’ is Questioning 2020 Election Results

One has to wonder how uncomfortable Trump could make things for McCarthy in the coming months.

Published

There is a major rift within the Republican Party in 2021, and the deepest, darkest parts of this crevasse plays host almost exclusively to conversations on a single subject:  The 2020 election. The MAGA Movement, which represents the far-right end of the GOP, believes wholeheartedly that Donald Trump was cheated out of the election, either by the work of Dominion Voting Systems or via Democratic balloting procedures that were tilted in the direction of the liberal left.  Of course, none of his legal surrogates have been able to get a judge to so much as listen to their case, and those who spoke on the subject of Dominion often found themselves on the receiving end of defamation lawsuits totaling over one billion dollars. On the opposite side of this field of battle in the GOP’s civil war, the “establishment” Republicans have been lining up, urging calm and a return to their less radical roots.  These conservatives are so concerned about the machinations of the MAGA masses that they’ve even threatened to break off into their own party – effectively sabotaging the entire right side of the aisle in the process. While House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has long been a supporter of Donald Trump, his latest statement will almost assuredly see him savaged by the far-right. Hours after Rep. Liz Cheney was ousted from her Republican leadership position for rebuking former President Donald Trump’s ongoing claim that the election was “stolen” from him, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters, “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.” “I think that is all over with,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said at the White House, where he was meeting with President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about Biden’s…
