GOP Must Fight the Right Battle!



Oh how tempting to be drawn into the wrong battle, when President Biden waves the red flag in front of 74 million raging conservative bulls. Biden isn’t on the November ballot, but his maddening presidential address from Independence Hall did all he could to draw us into a rematch of the 2020 election. He attacked President Trump and his MAGA faithful in a way that left half of America steaming. Why? Running against Trump and Ultra MAGA voters is all Biden can hope for.

Yes, Biden is maddening. He can’t be trusted, and he is taking America in the wrong direction. He talks about law and order but it’s all talk. He refuses to call out the major democrat-controlled cities’ dramatic crime increase, not to mention allowing his son Hunter to face a fair investigation and prosecution. He also refuses to deal effectively with border security, inflation, and our growing energy dependence. With so many failures, he has but one hope—rekindle the hatred of President Trump and the reversal of Roe vs. Wade to minimize democratic losses in the House and Senate. He wants America as divided as he can make it. He talks about unity, but Gary Varvel captured his true mission in his political cartoon. President Biden is wearing a cap that reads, “Make America Divided Again.” The more divided and angry the better!

There is an old joke about a preacher’s sermon notes. When delivering a weak point in their sermon, they’d write in the margin “Weak Point! Shout it out and pound the pulpit!” That was Biden’s entire Thursday Presidential Address.

But republicans shouldn’t take the bait! Too many GOP candidates are hoping that they can coast to victory on the basis of Biden’s incompetence. Republicans must run on what they are for. Americans need to know and share their vision of the future. They want promises, and they want those they elect to deliver on those promises.

But where is the republican Contract with America? It’s time to stand and promise to do what they can to deliver on that promise. Here are five Promises worth campaigning for!

Energy Independence: President Trump ushered in energy independence to America and President Biden has used climate change to ensure energy dependence and out of control energy costs. Republicans can support clean energy, including nuclear power, while using America’s abundant clean coal and oil to bridge our needs until a transition makes sense. Biden’s administration has created an energy crisis that has fed inflation and ensures a shortage of heating fuel for the coming winter. We need a sane energy policy that supports “all of the above.”

Secure the Southern Border: With millions of illegal immigrants literally walking across our Southern border, we are seeing the disastrous results. We have cities who can’t handle the influx of illegals and the cost of caring for them. We have thousands being bused across the US, and local politicians are pointing fingers and demanding funds to meet the need. That is not the answer. GOP candidates must stand for closing the border and must stop incentivizing illegal immigration.

Law and Order: Americans are no longer feeling safe in their communities. It’s time for candidates to take a stand for more law enforcement and stiffer prosecution with DAs who will actually keep criminals in jail. Americans are seeing flash mobs get away with robbery. They are seeing rioters destroy property and harm citizens without paying a price. President Biden is coming late to the party with his promises to increase funding for the police. GOP must take a strong stand for law enforcement. Their candidates must do everything they can to ensure that when you do the crime, you do the time. We don’t want words; we want safer communities.

Support School Choice: Our public schools are not doing the job and our children are falling behind. It’s time to put parents back in control of their children’s education. You can’t stop leftist teachers from indoctrinating your children, but if parents have school vouchers like they have in Sweden and in some states, parents can take their children and voucher to a school that will give them a quality education and teach values they support.

Lower Taxes and End Free Giveaways: It’s time to lower taxes on people who work and small businesses that make a profit. There should be more rewards for working than not working. There are jobs available, but many are not willing to take the jobs. Why? They are waiting for Washington’s next free giveaway. There should be no cancelation of student debt. If you make the deal, you pay the debt. Don’t make the responsible pay for the irresponsible.

In President Biden’s supposedly nonpartisan Presidential Address, he couldn’t resist shouting to America “Vote, vote, vote!” That is the only three words worth remembering. The future of America is dependent upon an election just ten weeks away. If being called an extremist isn’t enough to get you to the polls, remember that “Making America Great Again” isn’t about Trump or Biden. It is about selling to American voters a Contract with America that they can support. With these five promises, conservatives can ensure a future they can be proud of. Get busy selling why you vote republican. Trump and Biden can wait for 2024 to see if they are even on the ballot.

Merrick Garland’s DOJ is out of control, for example …

The point of what Biden’s Justice Department is doing is not to bring justice; the point is to terrify and intimidate his political opponents.



Tucker continues his coverage on the DOJ and FBI’s raid on homes of people who’ve merely criticized the current administration. Highlights include:

“… an update on the Biden administration’s armed crackdown on its critics. Earlier this month, the long time FBI agent and SWAT team veteran called Steve Friend came forward to blow the whistle on what he has seen happen to the FBI under Joe Biden, and what he said was shocking.”

“According to Agent Friend, Biden’s FBI routinely uses heavily armed SWAT teams to raid the homes of American citizens who dare to criticize the administration. Now, to be clear, these are people who pose no danger to anyone. These are people who haven’t even been accused, much less convicted of a violent crime. So the point is not to bring justice, the point is to terrify and intimidate Joe Biden’s political opponents.”

“On September 19, the FBI suspended Agent Steve Friend for daring to reveal what was happening, these abuses.”

“Now, it’s illegal under federal law to punish whistleblowers, but the FBI did it anyway. And then, four days later, with Friend out of the way, on the morning of September 23, a team of nearly 30 FBI agents bristling with automatic weapons raided the home of yet another harmless man with no criminal record. That man’s name was Mark Houck. Houck is 47, he’s a leader in his local Catholic community. FBI agents pointed rifles at Houck and his wife in front of their seven children.”

“Once again, to be clear, Houck is not a terrorist, he’s never been accused of terrorism. He is instead a pro-lifer.”

“Now, Houck learned about three months ago that the DOJ planned to charge him and he offered to turn himself in voluntarily. That’s what a civilized country allows. But that wasn’t good enough for Merrick Garland’s DOJ. They wanted to punish him and terrify his family to send the right message to anyone who would dare get in the way of the Biden agenda. So the DOJ sent a team of federal agents with rifles to Houck’s home. He now faces 11 years in prison for protecting his son.”

The people of Italy win big

Of course, leftist tyrants are not happy.



Tucker compares what’s going on in Europe with our own corrupt government here and finds them quite similar. Also, Giorgia Meloni’s big win in Italy, why she won and why the American left can’t stand it. Highlights include:

“Not a lot of Americans pay attention to European politics unless they’re very bored or work at some think-tank, and that’s understandable, but it’s a shame really, because if you look closely at what’s happening in Europe, you can learn a lot about what’s happening here.”

“Despite the castles and the funny accents and the smelly cheese, Europe is not actually that different from the United States, at least in this way. European leaders run their countries pretty much the same way our leaders run our country. They yammer on endlessly about democracy, but then at the same time they do their best to avoid democracy’s most basic requirements, like free speech and representative government.”

“You run a country in the name of the people. You’re not a king, you’re a democratically elected leader. You run it in the name of the people who live there, but at the same time it’s ‘dangerous’ to allow the opinions of those people to influence your decisions.”

“Does that sound familiar? It does because it’s exactly the kind of democracy that we live in, which is to say, a fake one.”

“In fact, there is no majority in any country on planet Earth that thinks open borders are a good idea, or that considers global warming the single biggest problem, or that thinks it’s wise to quarantine the entire population because of a flu virus. No large group of people anywhere wants these things. But in the west, everybody gets them anyway because politicians don’t care what you think. Your opinion is ‘dangerous’.”

“Shut up, racist!”

“This summer, a conservative populist called Giorgia Meloni started showing up with strong supports in the polls. Meloni was no radical, her views would’ve seemed perfectly ordinary just a decade ago. But because she resolutely refused to bow to the twin gods of climate and mass migration, people panicked. The president of the European Commission, in fact, on camera commanded Italians not to vote for her.”

“These aren’t mysteries, but you’re not allowed to acknowledge them in public, period. In some places it’s illegal. But, Meloni is one of the few politicians who doesn’t care and has been willing to say the obvious, the Truth, out loud, and as a result of that, because she’s been willing to say what everybody actually knows, last night her party, called ‘Brothers of Italy,’ won an overwhelming victory in Italy.”

“American families are facing the very same onslaught from the very same poisonous ideologies. The difference is that in this country it’s rarely acknowledged except on the fringes. Meloni is not on the fringes, she’s the new Prime Minister of Italy, she will be, and she’s saying it out loud. Contrast that to what’s happening in the United States. House Republicans just spelled out what they’re running on. It’s a document called ‘the Commitment to America.'”

“You probably haven’t read it, nobody really cares. Why? Because there’s nothing real in it. There’s not a single word in that document about the attacks on the American family that you see every day.”

“It’s their hysteria and their total unwillingness to ask obvious questions that lets you in on the secret, which is they’re panicked, because they know the current system is doomed.”

“And in fact, what happened last night in Italy is the best case scenario for them, because it was a peaceful transfer of power. That’s a good thing, that’s what you want. In a democracy, people should be allowed to have some influence on the priorities of the government that claims to represent them. And when they speak in an election, the people who’ve been repudiated have a moral obligation to pause just for one second and ask, ‘Why didn’t they like what I was offering them?'”

“But they never ask themselves that. They never take any blame whatsoever.”
