Obama Remarks on GOP Voting Law Gets Fierce Rebuke

The former President was simply WRONG, and he got called out for it.

Of all the large narratives still churning in the political ether these days, the fight for electoral security continues to produce some of the most heated narratives that we’ve seen.

Republican lawmakers around the nation have been working to tighten voting regulations across the board after the security of the 2020 election became a hot topic of conversation.   They claim that voter fraud is an issue that could affect any and all elections for years to come, and their hope it to get out ahead of that.

The Democrats, however, have suggested that this electoral integrity stance is merely a ploy to disenfranchise voters in predominately Democratic districts, alleging that voter fraud is not a prevalent enough issue for this response.

This week, former President Barack Obama weighed in on the debate, and his comments are causing him to take serious heat.

Former President Barack Obama slammed Republicans as “systematically” trying to prevent Americans from voting in a campaign speech for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

“All across the country, Democrats are trying to make it easier to vote, not make it harder to vote, and push back on Republicans who are trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard,” Obama said Saturday in Richmond.

“You have to ask yourself, why is it Republicans don’t want you to vote?” he asked.

Glenn Youngkin, the candidate running against McAuliffe, fired back at the former Commander in Chief through a spokesperson.

“Glenn has addressed this multiple times before Obama came to Virginia to bail Terry out, but instead of writing a story about the former President’s false statements, the press is indulging Terry’s fantasies and lies because he can’t run on his failed record and radical vision for the future,” Youngkin spokesperson Christian Martinez told Fox News.

Obama’s office did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on his comments.

Working for VP Harris is ‘Scarlet Letter’ in White House, Aides Flee in Droves

WHOA!

Published

The situation at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a strange one at this moment, and news from the East Wing has many wondering just how much worse things are going to get before they begin to mend.

While there is certainly a great deal of trouble within the Biden administration, perhaps no corner of the executive branch is quite as worrisome as the office of the Vice President, with Kamala Harris dropping staffers by the handful, and new reports of castigation befalling those who’ve worked for her.

A new report revealed that departing staffers for Vice President Harris are leaving their White House posts in part due to concerns of being forever labeled a “Harris person.”

A growing list of Harris staffers are heading out the door amid internal chaos and disastrous poll numbers.

The concern of being labeled a “Harris person,” as well as burnout and desire for greener pastures, are driving the exodus from the vice president’s office, sources familiar with the chaos in the VP’s office told Axios.

One anonymous Democratic strategist said that Harris needs “someone loyal, who can think methodically to best position the vice president and to make sure everything she’s doing is being maximized and communicated to a broad population and get her numbers up.”

And also:

A different Democratic operative close to the veep’s office told Axiosthat the staff departures are lighting a fire under chief of staff Tina Flournoy to keep the sinking ship afloat.

“If we mess this up, it’s going to set women back when it comes to running for higher office for years to come,” the operative said.

The label of being a “Harris person” apparently carries a weighted stigma with it in Washington — something that does not bode well for the fledgling veep as her first year in office begins to wrap up.

The news will undoubtedly reignite the Democrats’ fears about their chances to win the White House again in 2024.

Lin Wood Reveals Screenshot Suggesting that Tucker and Hunter are ‘Buddy Buddy’

WHAT?!

All the world’s a stage, right?  Isn’t that the de facto anecdote we turn to when our illusions about the world around us are shattered?  It’s the, “welp, I guess this counts as closure” statement that we use as a bandaid over our confusion.

Controversial attorney Lin Wood is almost undoubtedly understanding of this idea, having been inversely reviled at times by both sides of the aisle.  His latest bit of strange behavior has involved a couple of the mainstream media’s most controversial figures:  Fox New host Tucker Carlson and Hunter Biden, long-embattled son of the President.

The Donald Trump-allied lawyer Lin Wood claims that the Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, have a “buddy-buddy” relationship. On Thursday, Wood posted what he claims is a conversation between the two as proof.

While it’s unclear who originally posted the email exchange between Biden and Carlson, Wood uploaded the unredacted and unverified screenshot to his Telegram channel on Thursday night. It appears to show three emails between Biden and Carlson from November 2014.

Neither Carlson nor Biden has confirmed the authenticity of the messages.

And what was this purported evidence?

In the exchange, Carlson appears to thank Biden for writing a reference letter to Georgetown University — which Biden attended — for his son, Buckley.

While the mainstream media still portrays Wood as a supporter of former President Trump, those who’ve been following along with this storyline aren’t so sure, citing the conniving attorney’s penchant for flip flopping.
