Joondeph wonders rhetorically, If Trump is Irrelevant, Why is He Still Such a Political Force of Nature?

"Alienating everyone to the right of Larry Hogan ensures she can keep those sweet Never Trump donor bucks flowing." AllahPundit at Haut Hair, Is Liz Cheney anti-anti-Trump now?
My triple-bank-shot hot take on Cheney saying she’d have difficulty supporting DeSantis in a 2024 primary is that it’s a strategic anti-endorsement. She knows that if DeSantis challenges Trump, the MAGA cult will accuse him of being a Liz Cheney in Trumpy clothing. So here she is helping him out by heading off that argument before it gets rolling.…Nah, I don’t really believe it. It’s too clever by half.

Stacy McCain reminds us We Were Told This Would Never Happen
Your beliefs, opinions and concerns have been derided as homophobic. But it turns out that facts are also homophobic:
A Georgia couple has been charged with using their two adopted children to record child pornography, police said.Yes, an “international syndicate” of gay pedophiles — two words that journalists never use together in the same sentence, you might have noticed, because gay pedophile describes a category that we are supposed to believe does not exist. The mere fact that someone identifies as homosexual means they cannot be a pedophile, we are expected to believe, because in the media lexicon, “gay” is a synonym for good.
Walton County Sheriff’s Office raided a home in Loganville July 27 on reports that a man there was downloading child porn.
After interviewing the suspect, who was not identified, police said they learned there was another suspect in the county who was “producing homemade child sexual abuse material with at least one child who lived in the home,” the sheriff’s office said Thursday.

While most may not realize it, North Carolina is ground zero for the battle over woke primary education at the state level.

The North Carolina State Board of Education meeting room prominently displays the Robert Wood Johnson Health Equity Infographic as an official logo. The elected Republican education superintendent supports CASEL Social Emotional Learning and employs the leftist tactics of redefining terms when supporting equity practices in education, assuring citizens that “[educational equity] does not mean ensuring equal outcomes.”
