What is Best In Politics?

"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!" Nick Arama at Red State, NBC News Panel Panics Over Latest Numbers That Promise a Massacre of Democrats in Midterms. Atop Da Hill, McCarthy says GOP will win control of House: ‘It’s not going to be a five-seat majority’. Stuey Rothenberg at Roll Call says Don’t rule out a GOP Senate wave, "Senate races shape up very differently from House ones." In Are Democrats Headed for a Shellacking in the Midterm Election? the UVA Center for Politics  crunches the numbers and concludes
Democrats are very likely to lose their majority in the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm election and could lose their majority in the Senate, although that is less certain. In neither chamber, however, are they likely to experience a shellacking of the sort that both parties have experienced in some postwar midterm elections. That is simply because they won only 222 seats in the House in 2020 and are defending only 14 seats in the Senate. The fact that very few of those Democratic seats in the House and none of the Democratic seats in the Senate are in districts or states that were carried by Donald Trump in 2020 makes it even less likely that the party will experience a shellacking the size of which we’ve seen in some previous midterms or anything close to it — even as the Republicans could very well flip both chambers of Congress this fall.

Misanthropic Humanitarian at Ace's, What Are We To Do? A Fine Question. At WaPoo, the occasioanlly sensible Megan McArdle opines Republicans are on track to regain power. They should decide what to do with it. She, of course, want us to be the nice guys, and give in to the Democrats and bureaucracy. From Breitbart, Donna Brazil is trying to keep her team's spirits up,  GOP ‘Running on Fumes’ — ‘Democrats Are Running on the Economy That’s Roaring Back’, if by roaring you mean double digit inflation. Also on Da Hill Denny Aftergut (really?), has Three messages Biden should double down on before the midterms. Tough on crime, jaw down inflation and tax the rich! At Fox, a 2024 Watch: First Iowa, now New Hampshire – are Biden’s trips sending reelection signals? Ed Driscoll at Insty, TODAY’S INSTALLMENT IN THE FEINSTEIN COUNTDOWN

“Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus, a reliable barometer of certified liberal opinion inside the Beltway, has a column up about the matter of Dianne Feinstein, which even a careless reader can make out as another loud note in chorus of coordinated voices that has determined that Feinstein needs to be forced from office…we have to wonder whether this effort to drive Feinstein from office is a dry run for how the left will try to remove President Biden at some point soon.”

Sundance at CTH, notes how CBS Outlines Causes of Massive Inflation, Identifies Everything Except Biden Policy. At WaEx, a reminder of Stagflation, energy crises, and 'malaise': The last time inflation was this high. A return to the Carter era is a best-case scenario. But not to worry, at I&I they note ‘Wrong Way’ Krugman Says Inflation Will Soon Ease.  Hold On To Your Wallets, "We certainly hope Krugman is right … for once. At Da Caller, Biden Admin Quietly Opens Up Land To Oil Drilling — With Just One Catch.  Tristan Justice at Da Fed explains how Biden Raises Cost Of Domestic Oil Production With New Order On Federal Leases Splitting the baby with higher royalties, and less land. At WaEx, Naomi Lim thinks Biden's student debt gamble may not pay off with voter enthusiasm. At JTN, In worrying sign for Dems, strong majority of California voters say taxes still too high. They voted poorly. From sundance, Union Pacific Rail Line Begins Restricting U.S. Fertilizer Distribution "This is layers of odd.  As many readers are aware, the prices of fertilizer have skyrocketed as supplies have been heavily impacted by increased energy costs and supply chain issues.  Many people have worried if a shortage of fertilizer may impact farm yields this year."

At WaT, How Philly’s mayor is helping Republicans win the midterms, "Jim Kenney ignores the hardships that arise from mandates." At the Conservative Brief, ‘It’s Time You’re Out Of Elected Office’: Stefanik Backs Cheney’s GOP Primary Challenger. Cat fight! From WaEx's Dan Chaitin Roger Stone posts video of him telling Trump to watch out for Ron DeSantis. Yeah, he's a contender. Andy Cuff at Am Great thinks Trump Made a Bad Call in Pennsylvania’s Senate Race. Depends on the alternative, doesn't it? Brett Higby at Am Think reminds us of Leftists' Utter Mindlessness about Voter Fraud

Kurt Schlichter at Town Hall says Defending American Democracy Requires We Start by Crushing the Public School Weirdos

I just love it when I see some mutated whiner on Tik Tok complaining that xe is not supposed to show videos if xis interpretative dance performance of “My Penis Confounds Me” to classrooms of second graders and how the mean old school board is cruelly repressing xis personal vision of a genderfluid future.

Yes, exactly.

Yes, you are being repressed. You may not use the classroom as your personal venue for your delusional and stupid obsessions.

We call this “Democracy.” And ground zero in the fight to defend it is our local elementary.

Peachy Keenan at the Am Mind, Unholy Week "You don't have to be a sex maniac to be a groomer...but it helps." Landon Mion at Town Hall, Massachusetts School Teachers Sued After Allegedly Encouraging Students to Alter Gender Identity. At Da Caller, Kansas Gov. Shoots Down Bill Banning Trans Athletes "Democratic Kansas Governor Laura Kelly vetoed two Republican state congressional bills Friday: one that proposed a ban on transgender athletes in girls’ sports and another that would allow parents to challenge Kansas public education curriculum." Sammy Samson at Am Spec discourses on Lia Thomas and the Contradiction Between Liberty and Equality, "A tyrannical view of equality yields subjugation and mediocrity." At Da Caller, Democratic Rep. Suozzi Breaks From The Liberal Herd On Florida’s Parental Rights Bill

 “I think it’s a very reasonable law not to try to get kids in kindergarten to be talking about sex,” Suozzi told WABC’s Sid Rosenberg. “I wish it wouldn’t become such a hot button issue where people are just attacking each other—it’s just common sense. I’m very much in favor of equal rights, I’m very much in favor of treating gay people fairly and treating them like the human beings they are.”

From Breitbart, Millionaire Heiress Abigail Disney Trashes U.S. in Documentary: American Dream Is a ‘Nightmare’ for Most. "The first generation makes it, the second generation spends it, and the third generation blows it." She's the third generation. Also, Watch: Parents March on Disneyland to Protest Studio’s Woke LGBTQ+ Agenda for Children. At News Busters, Networks SKIP Sentencing of Gay Democrat Mega-Donor in Meth Overdose Deaths. Inconvenient to the narratives.

At Behind the Black, Today’s blacklisted American: Two colleges hold segregated debate tournament that bans whites from competing. From Twitchy, Christina Pushaw OWNS toolbags claiming CRT isn’t taught in schools with ACTUAL math homework from Missouri public school (screenshot). Peachy Keenan at the Am Mind, Unholy Week "You don't have to be a sex maniac to be a groomer...but it helps."

Forbes reports on the Twitter Takeover Battle: Elon Musk—And Jack Dorsey—Turn Up Pressure On Board. Da Wire suspects Twitter’s ‘Poison Pill’ Plan To Block Elon Musk From Buying The Company May Not Be Enough To Stop Him. NYT, cited at Haut Hair whines about The elusive politics of Elon Musk. Suffice it to say they don't completely align. Vicky Taft at PJ Media warns Elon Musk Is Not Your Savior. I don't need a savior, but reforming or killing Twitter would be a benefit to the national discourse. 

At Contra, Elon Musk Versus the Regime, "Musk effectively declared war on the established political order when he suggested wresting control of one of its main tools for maintaining and manufacturing consensus." At City Journal, Musk Makes the Mask Slip, "The Tesla CEO’s bid to buy Twitter has prompted many prominent figures to admit bluntly that they oppose free speech." Dereck Hunter at Town Hall, Free Speech Is A Threat To Democrats. Fox, Bongino: These 'lunatics' are losing their mind over Musk's Twitter bid. WSJ, cited at Haut Hair wants you to  Meet the Twitter army of Elon Musk superfans. It seems they want us to deplore them. Insty, HEH: “Do you care to know why I’m in this chair? I’m here for one reason, and one reason alone. To ensure the narrative remains controlled.”

Plus: “Luckily, my friends at the SEC – or as Musk calls it, ‘the short selling enrichment commission’ – have informed me they have a few surprises in store for Mr. Musk. By the time they’re through with him, he’ll be ready to send himself to Mars in one of those spaceships of his.”

At NYPo, the divine Ms. Devine notices Democrats are campaigning on Jan. 6 hypocrisy. JB Shurk at Am Think wonders Will J6 Be Remembered More Like the Boston Massacre?. Becca Downs at Haut Hair, More Jan. 6 Select Committee Nonsense Revealed as CNN Targets Private Texts of Rep. Chip Roy, Sen. Mike Lee. I'm so looking forward to seeing Adam Schiff and Fat Boy Slim's (jerry Nadler) personal texts. Andrea Widburg at Am Think thinks The judge in a January 6 case should be disbarred. More than one in my opinion.
