26 state governors on Monday 9/20 demanded a meeting with President Biden about the southern border crisis. “A crisis that began at our southern border now extends beyond to every state and requires immediate action before the situation worsens,” the group wrote.

“While governors are doing what we can, our Constitution requires that the President must faithfully execute the immigration laws passed by Congress. Not only has the federal government created a crisis, it has left our states to deal with challenges that only the federal government has a duty to solve.” More
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas met privately with Border Patrol agents in Texas (link) and said in leaked audio that the border crisis is "unsustainable" and "we're going to lose" if "borders are the first line of defense."
"A couple of days ago I was down in Mexico, and I said look, you know, if, if our borders are the first line of defense, we're going to lose and this is unsustainable," Mayorkas said Thursday, according to the audio obtained by Fox News' Bill Melugin through a Border Patrol source.
"We can't continue like this, our people in the field cant continue and our system isn't built for it."

On Monday, September 13, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services transitioned from a direct ordering process (of mAb inventory) to a state/territory distribution system - LINK
As the administration of Joe Biden steps in to take control over Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) inventories and distribution, blocks red states from receiving the treatment, and makes grand pronouncements about controlling supply based on “equity”, the cowed White House press corps sits silently .. except for Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.
WATCH Jennifer Psaki lie, twist, obfuscate and manipulate the discussion in an attempt to defend an indefensible position when questioned by Robinson about Biden’s recent moves to punish Florida:
Keep in mind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was initially blasted by progressives, the media writ large and the White House for his support of Monoclonal Antibody treatment. As soon as they noticed the approach was working, HHS moved to block the DeSantis mAb program by taking control of the inventory.
On Thurs. 9/16, Gov. DeSantis responds directly to the White House effort to kill Florida residents by withholding previously agreed shipments of Monoclonal Antibodies. WATCH
DeSantis outlined the issues Florida is facing after the Biden administration instructed the federal offices of HHS to punish the successful therapy and recovery efforts of the sunshine state healthcare system. He outlines the purchase agreement that Biden intentionally violated and also the issues created by the federal government now blocking direct purchasing of treatment from the manufacturer.
Additionally, the governor noted he has held meetings with ¹GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to purchase mAb shipments directly from the second source manufacturer in order to work around the roadblocks being presented by the Biden administration. Gov. DeSantis reaffirmed his commitment to stand in the way, and not allow Joe Biden to kill Americans just because he doesn’t like their politics.

.General Mark Milley
“He’s basically taking Article Two of the Constitution under his own wing and did not do proper service to the President of the United States,” Gen. Kellogg said. He added that Milley’s alleged behavior directly contradicts his role as an adviser to the President and the National Security Council and undermines the Uniform Code of Military Justice. "So he’s really, truly overstepped his bounds.” MORE
Former Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, who led the Pentagon from the period after the 2020 election through Inauguration Day, said that he “did not and would not ever authorize” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to have “secret” calls with his Chinese counterpart, describing the allegations as a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination,” and calling on him to resign “immediately.”
In a statement to Fox News, Miller said that the United States Armed Forces, from its inception, has “operated under the inviolable principle of civilian control of the military.”
“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the highest-ranking military officer whose sole role is providing military-specific advice to the president, and by law is prohibited from exercising executive authority to command forces,” Miller said. “The chain of command runs from the President to the Secretary of Defense, not through the Chairman.” MORE
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley released a statement through a spokesman that confirmed the reporting in the new book Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa that stated Milley had two conversations with his counterpart in the Chinese military that undermined President Trump and also a meeting Milley had with military leaders to insert himself into the nuclear launch command to subvert Trump’s authority as commander-in-chief after January 6th. MORE
Multiple news sources (including the mainstream media) are reporting that JCS Chairman General Mark Milley took President Trump out of the chain-of-command.
The reports originated from the book “Peril” written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
In the days after January 6, 2020 Gen. Milley held a top-secret meeting with senior military officials. He ordered his staff to ignore all orders except his .. meanwhile held secret talks with China and House Speaker Pelosi.
“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley ordered. The General then demanded each person in the room verbally confirm they would only follow him.
According to the Washington Post, Milley made a secret phone call to China stating he would give them advanced notice if the US was going to attack. MORE
Republicans would do well to abstain from misleading talk about “bipartisanship” and refer to the Democrats as what they really are: a totalitarian threat to our constitutional system.

Endorsement of Joe Kent
Joe Kent is a retired Green Beret and Gold Star husband running against RINO and incompetent Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler in the 3rd District of the State of Washington. Joe served his country proudly for many years and understands the tremendous cost of America's wars in the Middle East, and elsewhere. In Congress, Joe will be a warrior for the America First agenda, unlike Jaime Herrera Beutler who voted, despite the facts, against the Republican Party and for the Democrats' Impeachment Scam.
Joe Kent is strong on Crime and the Border, loves our Military and our Vets, and will protect our Second Amendment, which is under siege. I met Joe at Dover Air Force Base on the evening that his wife was being brought back from the Middle East, where she had been killed in combat. It was a very sad moment in Joe’s life, but I was incredibly impressed with him and told him that he should someday run for office—we need his voice and leadership in Washington, D.C. Now he is running, and Joe Kent has my Complete and Total Endorsement!

Endorsement of Sean Parnell
Sean Parnell is running for the United States Senate to serve the Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Sean bravely fought for our Country as a Captain in the U.S. Army and was awarded two Bronze Stars (one for valor) and the Purple Heart. Unlike our current administration, he never left anyone behind.
Sean is a great candidate, who got robbed in his congressional run in the Crime of the Century—the 2020 Presidential Election Scam. He will make Pennsylvania very proud and will fight for Election Integrity, Strong Borders, our Second Amendment, Energy Jobs, and so much more. Sean Parnell will always put America First. He has my Complete and Total Endorsement!
"The miracle here is that the faster Florida grows, the redder it gets"
POLITICOreportsthat “Florida has gained nearly 3 million people since the last redistricting process a decade ago,” and that expansion has “set the stage for a remaking of its political lines headed into a 2022 election likely to determine control of the U.S. House.”
The paper’s Gary Fineout and Matt Dixon remind readers that redistricting “will be controlled by Republicans, who already hold 16 of the state’s 27 congressional districts.” Democrats worry that “the new maps will only further banish them in Florida’s political desert.”
Florida will gain a 28th seat in the next Congress, not to mention a 30th Electoral College vote in the 2024 presidential election. That nicely matches the losses suffered by New York State, and ironically enough, New Yorkers fled their own COVID lockdowns for Florida.
It isn’t due to redistricting dirty tricks in Florida, either, even though you can expect Dems to scream bloody murder about them anyway. Governor Ron DeSantis revealed this spring that an “overwhelming” number of new residents are registering R instead of D.
AsDeSantis told Sean Hannityat the time:
The lockdowns turned them into Republicans because they say ‘I cannot fathom,’ people say, ‘I was a Democrat because of education, and I’m in California and they’re locking my kids out of school. I come to Florida, they’re in school, people are free, people are happy.’ So I think this whole process has caused some people to reevaluate some of their prior commitments. (More)
The caning of Sen. Charles Sumner
(politics is not a pillow fight)
The sudden dip in Joe Biden’s poll numbers in the wake of his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan + the utter abandon with which the Democrat Congress is throwing away trillions of dollars on infrastructure and relief programs (which are aimed at rewarding Democratic constituencies) would suggest that Biden’s party is headed for a fall. But other factors may be at play here:
First, the Democrats intend to exercise fully whatever power they can grab. That’s because Democrats view politics as more than a parlor game. The Democrats have well-coordinated plans to take over the government permanently and run it as a one-party state. H.R. 1 and H.R. 4 (bills intended to federalize elections), statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, maintaining an open border with Mexico, and providing $107 billion for legalizing the status of illegal residents as part of the latest Democratic spending bill are not random acts of kindness.
Second, and even more significantly, the Democrats have at their disposal a vast array of powerful allies, including the mainstream media, government surveillance agencies, educational institutions, and the permanent government administration. The electronic media will be able to shut off criticism of the Democrats. Since the power constellation that assisted the Democratic Party back then will still be around in 2022, the Republicans will still have to address the problem of hostile reporting.
We'll win by having leaders who will fight for U.S.
Ron Fires Back At AP
A series of tweets from the governor’s press secretary Christina Pushaw criticizing the story (Twitter then suspended her account) led the AP to send a letter to DeSantis’ office accusing her of a “direct effort to activate an online mob to attack” their reporter, as well as calling on him to “eliminate this attack strategy from your press office.”
“I assumed your letter was to notify me that you were issuing a retraction of the smear piece you published last week,” DeSantis began in his Monday letter responding to the AP. “Instead, you had the temerity to complain about the deserved blowback that your botched and discredited attempt to concoct a political narrative has received. This ploy will not work to divert attention from the fact that the Associated Press published a false narrative that will lead some to decline effective treatment for COVID infections.”
“That the AP has received vigorous pushback is something that should be expected given the brazenness of your political attack and the fact that your false narrative will cost lives. You cannot recklessly smear your political opponents and then expect to be immune from criticism.” (MORE)
uh .. Fake News again
The AP's story headline, "DeSantis top donor invests in COVID drug governor promotes," implied he was promoting Regeneron's COVID antibody treatment because a Chicago-based hedge fund that donated to a pro-DeSantis political committee also owns shares of the company.
The AP acknowledged in the story that it's "not unusual for hedge funds to have a wide range of investments" and admitted that medical experts agree with DeSantis on the effectiveness of Regeneron, but published the story with the damaging framework anyway.
"You can tell that the 2024 election season is in full swing when the major media try to nuke top GOP candidates. It's almost a badge of honor when the press piles up hit job after hit job against you," Media Research vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News. (MORE)
"I spent enough years in journalism to still recall when the Associated Press meant a level of professionalism. That's no longer true. This is the kind of journalism they are associated with. They should be embarrassed."
