Sundance at CTH notes Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Wins Coveted Paul Ryan Endorsement for 2024. He's not a Ryan fan. KT at Haut Hair, Democrat sheriff: Venezuelan migrants flown to Martha's Vineyard are victims of crime and entitled to special visas. More from sundance, Illegal Aliens Flown to Martha’s Vineyard by Ron DeSantis Granted Special VISAs Permitting Lawful Residency as Crime Victims
As expected, the Lawfare ideologues have weaponized the legal system to grant special visa status to the illegal aliens flown to Martha’s Vineyard by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. The aliens have been granted lawful U.S. residency status via “U VISA’s” reserved for victims of crimes.
Their applications as criminally trafficked victims come as the result of Texas Sherriff Javier Salazar certifying they were victims of an illegal human trafficking operation led by the Florida governor. As an outcome, Ron DeSantis is under investigation by federal authorities and Texas authorities for violations of human trafficking laws.
If true, Joe Biden is the worlds biggest human trafficker. KT calls this DeSantis ad The election cycle's best ad is both heartbreaking and uplifting.At WaEx, Tulsi Gabbard attacks Democratic hypocrisy for not supporting women.

I’ve got a confession to make. When I saw that Republican Herschel Walker had accepted a debate with Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, I wasn’t exactly enthused. Yes, to some extent, Walker’s communication issues have been overstated, but no one was ever going to confuse him for a charismatic speaker, and certainly, no one thought he would be a good debater.
The running assumption for the month leading up to the event has been simple: Walker would be lucky to get out alive, and absolutely no one was entertaining the possibility that he could excel.
In a shocking twist, though, that’s exactly what Walker did. It wasn’t a perfect performance, but far from bombing, people are actually suggesting that the Republican candidate may have won the debate. That’s a far cry from the predictions of total meltdown being made just prior to showtime.

"I'm not going to look at his "sex tape" but I see the photograph at the link and suspect that there's not much to see in the video. The mere idea of making a "sex tape" is supposed — correctly — to be enough to get our attention." Anything is better than Nadler.
At Haut Hair, Dave Strom reports RCP to address polling crisis
They don’t outright say it, but the thrust of the initiative is clear: to name and shame the “pollsters and news organizations” who are skewing the results and getting disproportionate attention for misleading results. They aren’t naming names yet, but they are promising to do so.
Many of us on the right have been struck by how misleading the polling is in important races–always skewing in favor of the Democrats. Remember when Hillary had a 99% chance of winning the presidency just before she lost?

Well, this will all be fading in our rearview mirror soon enough. Anyone who looks at the poll numbers can see that Democrats are going to get wiped out in the midterms, and the proceedings of the J6 Committee will be remembered as symptomatic of Orange Man Bad Syndrome.
All we have to do is Keep Calm and Vote Republican.

John Solomon at JTN, John Durham unmistakably puts FBI on trial alongside its Russian collusion informant, "With probing questions and relentless redirects, prosecutor exposes FBI for omissions, deletions, peculiar lack of curiosity and a $1 million bounty to pursue Trump." Also, FBI agent, analyst: Mueller never interviewed key witness and Democrat operative Charles Dolan. Well after all, they were working for the Clinton campaign, unofficially. Jerry Dunleavy at WaEx reports on why the Judge in Durham Danchenko case dismisses one of five false statements charges
Judge Anthony Trenga’s decision to dismiss one of the criminal counts came down to what the definition of the word “talked” is.
Durham’s indictment against the Russian-born Danchenko argued that he “stated falsely that he had never communicated with” longtime Clinton ally Charles Dolan “about any allegations contained” in the dossier, while “in truth and in fact, and as Danchenko well knew, Danchenko sourced one or more specific allegations” in the dossier anonymously to Dolan.
During an interview with the FBI, Danchenko’s handling agent, Kevin Helson, had asked Danchenko: “But you had never talked to [Dolan] about anything that showed up in the dossier right?”
The defendant had replied, “No.” The agent followed up, “You don't think so?” Danchenko replied, “No. We talked about, you know, related issues perhaps but no, no, no, nothing specific."
Danchenko’s defense attorneys have argued that their client's answer was “literally true.”
The judge agreed.
