Gotta spend $5 trillion to lose $10 trillion

Socialists finally figured out how to take out capitalism -- by making it a ward of the state.

Zero Hedge reported, "S&P Trading Below Biden's Inauguration, Despite $1.7 Trillion In QE And $3.5 Trillion In Fiscal Stimulus."

I like that word despite, which really means because. Fed Chairman Jay Powell has fluffed the stock market just as every Fed chairman has since the economy collapsed in 2008. But all the Viagra in the world cannot sustain this economy because inflation leads to financial ruin. We are getting there.

WaPo admits Dems fear apocalypse

The Washington Post reported, "Apocalypse now: Democrats embrace a dark midterm message. Biden and the Democrats planned to run mostly on their accomplishments. But warnings of a Republican dystopia are becoming a bigger part of their message."

DeSantis passed the hurricane test

A 500-year hurricane wiped out most of Florida this week. The Tampa Bay Times described the devastation.

Calling North Korea an ally is "deft diplomacy"

Kamala went to the DMZ in Korea and announced to the world, "The United States shares a very important relationship which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea."

Good gravy. The Biden regime has lost its Seoul.

ITEM 1: Blogger LawDog pooh-poohed the idea that we sabotaged the Nordstream pipelines. It was down for maintenance and Russians are as good at maintenance as they are at military operations.

Anyone Mark Hamill doesn't like is worse than Darth Vader

I am not going to mock or knock Mark Hamill's acting just because his politics suck. He started on General Hospital at age 12 and nearly 60 years later, he's still going -- largely as a voice actor for cartoons. He was in that first Star Wars movie (the only one I ever watched) and he did a good job creating a character remembered nearly a half century later.

A 21-point lead may help Republicans

Hidden inside the recesses of the latest ABC News-Washington Post poll was this nugget: "Among those living in congressional districts that are rated as at least somewhat competitive by ABC’s FiveThirtyEight (neither solid Republican nor solid Democratic), registered voters favor Republican candidates by a wide 55-34 percent – nearly as big as the Republican lead in solid GOP districts (+24 points). Democrats lead by 35 points in solid Democratic districts, pointing to a potential overvote where they’re most prevalent."

Shred the Constitution and blame Trump

You don't have to be braindead to be a liberal. Booze and hallucinogens will suffice.

Running out of October surprises

Democrats are due for a spanking because that's what happens to a president's party. They lose congressmen and maybe a senator or two in a president's first midterm. The exceptions were FDR in 1934 due to the Depression and Dubya in 2002 because of the Global War on Terrorism. Clinton's impeachment helped Democrats gain House seats in his second midterm.

Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Politico headlined a story, "Poll: Majority supports reforming electoral vote count law."

Republicans headed to best showing in 94 years

The bad news is Republicans won't win as many seats this year as they did in 1994 (54) or 2010 (63).

The good news is they don't have to. 

A 36-seat gain would make the 118th Congress (which begins on January 3rd) the most-Republican House in 94 years because Republicans start this time with a larger minority.

Trump triumphs. Squad loses

The Democrat Party's Squad resembles a 1970s Hanna-Barbera superheroes cartoon. There's AOC Girl, Boston Baldy, the Palestinian Pouter and of course, the Somalian Brother Lover. 

The media makes them out to be the future of the Democrat Party. If so, Republicans will rule for decades.

ITEM 1: Emerson College Polling shows Republican Governor Greg Abbott is up by 4 points over Democrat Robert Francis O'Rourke.
