Our nation is faced with the most consequential decisions since the 1860's when President Abraham Lincoln and Congress worked together to save the Union – and government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

No wonder Democrats are sounding the Alarm Bells – 3 key groups they can't afford to lose now say the country's doing worse under Joe Biden's leadership. A full 73% of women say the country is doing badly, while only 27% say its doing well. That's crushing for Biden, who won females by 15% in 2020. Hispanics say the nation's doing badly by a 66% to 34% margin, and then there's Independents...

Ford President & CEO Jim Farley suggested last week – ahead of the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike – that his company couldn’t pay workers what they wanted because of the company's rapidly growing costs of transitioning to Electric Vehicles. Earlier this summer Ford announced they expect to lose a staggering $4.5 billion on electric vehicles this year, up from the initial $3 billion loss forecast earlier in the year.
The most chilling fact is, this came from the White House Counsel’s Office. This is not the Press Office, but a Counsellor to the President calling on the nation's media to “ramp up their scrutiny” and form a unified front against House Republicans impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. And, the White House shows no reluctance or concern in making such an open pitch.
"We all knew this was an incredibly dangerous, but outrageous situation," said Mark Penley, who served as then-Attorney General Ken Paxon's Deputy Attorney General for Criminal Justice.

They are beginning to understand the full weight of the #BidenBorderCrisis.

"Joe Biden’s war on domestic energy is absurd and he's prohibiting oil production and drilling on millions of acres of oil-rich U.S. land.

Brian Babin of the new regulations.

For years the Biden White House has advocated for the censorship of online political speech it doesn’t like, and partnered with Big Tech to get the job done. U.S. District Court Judge Terry A.

Rosenberg – dismissed a lawsuit brought by a Florida attorney that attempted to disqualify Donald Trump from running for president (under the 14th Amendment) for allegedly fomenting "an insurrection" after the 2020 Election. Mr. Trump, however, has not been charged with "insurrection," nor convicted of any crime.
