The 2024 nominees are set, Kamala visits an abortion mill, and Hunter’s blowing off the Congressional hearing he himself wanted. It’s been a busy week for campaign 2024.

Biden-Trump Are Nominees Again. Will Results Be the Same?

We’ve semi-officially got ourselves the first president-versus-president race since before the invention of the airplane. Both Joe Biden and Donald Trump secured the respective nominations of their parties Tuesday night. Or more accurately, both have secured enough delegates to win their party nomination come convention time this summer.

How does this match-up compare to their battle in 2020? Trump is now in a much stronger position. The RealClearPolitics average of polls shows he is up two points on Biden nationally. He was never ahead in 2020.

The swing state numbers are even more in Trump’s favor. Fox News shows Trump up two points in Pennsylvania and  four in Arizona. Polling in late February showed Trump was also up by four  points in Wisconsin, while CBS News gave him a three-point advantage in Georgia and RealClearPolling finds he’s opened a five-point lead in Nevada. These are all states Trump lost in 2020. Also, Michigan and Minnesota are back in play, thanks to dwindling Muslim support and auto union support for Biden. Even Virginia shows Biden with only a 4% lead

No State of the Union Bump for Biden

One other bit of statistical bad news for the current president: You know that traditional “bump” a president gets after his State of the Union address? Biden didn’t get one. His campaign had been hoping the speech would reinvigorate their claims that he is vigorous enough for the job. That did not happen. Despite the media’s best efforts to sell his “feisty” performance as a success, Biden gained absolutely no ground, according to several polls. His job approval rating remains around 39%.

Kamala Harris Visits Abortion Mill

On Thursday, Kamala Harris became the first U.S. vice president or president ever to visit an abortion center. She went to a Planned Parenthood office in Minnesota to declare, “In this environment, these attacks against an individual’s right to make decisions about their own body are outrageous and in many instances just plain old immoral.”

What’s that line about calling good evil and evil good?

Since her days in California, Harris has been a fully owned mouthpiece for the abortion industry –and an enforcer. It was as California attorney general that she first tried to criminally prosecute journalist-activist David Daledien for exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby-organ selling operation. Under Harris, chopping up babies and selling the pieces for profit is okay; exposing that fact gets you prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Imagine for a second a President Harris having the unmitigated power of the United States government to target those who stand in the way of the wholesale slaughter of innocents.

It’s easy to consider how bad she’d be as president, but few consider just how dangerous.

Upon news that Harris was going to visit an abortion clinic, Stanton Healthcare, a life-affirming women’s health center in Idaho, formally invited her to visit. Said Stanton Healthcare CEO Brandi Swindell in a letter received by The Stream, “Madame Vice President, if you truly believe in the concept of ‘choice’ you would make the same commitment to visit a life-affirming women’s medical clinic. One could never be considered ‘pro-choice’ without offering real choices.”

Will Harris accept? We doubt she’d do that even if Stanton offered to pick her up in one of her beloved school buses.

Dangerous: Dem Voters Want Congress to Nullify Election, Adam Schiff Wants to Endanger National Security

We must be prepared for anything between now and the next inauguration day. This week offered two chilling examples.

A new Rasmussen survey shows that 57% of Democrat voters want Congress to simply “refuse to certify the election results if Trump wins,” whether that’s in a clean-as-a-whistle landslide or not. Just simply say no, they advise, should Democrats take back the House.

Apparently, these voters do not even care that Joe Biden is trying to jail Trump simply for wanting swing states to take a closer look at the 2020 results.

Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) latest trick to topple Trump actually puts our safety at risk. Once he officially secures the GOP nomination, Trump will again begin receiving classified intelligence briefings. It’s tradition. You want the next potential president to be up to speed on what’s going on, to be on top of any national security threats. But Schiff told NBC News he wants his friends in the intelligence community to “dumb down” any briefings given Trump. Don’t give him the info he needs — just the minimum they can provide. Schiff’s reason, given with a straight face: Trump is “so criminally negligent when it comes to handling classified information.”

Schiff said this in the same week that Special Counsel Robert Hurt sat mere feet from him to lay out in detail Joe Biden’s multi-decade, multi-location illegal handling and sharing of classified information that never should have been taken out of a secure facility, let alone serve as rags to mop up oil from his prized Corvette.

Hunter Biden Backs Out of Public Hearing He Requested

Remember when Hunter Biden rebuffed a congressional subpoena, standing outside the Capitol and insisting he wanted a public hearing? Guess who is now blowing off that public hearing?

Hunter, who did eventually testify behind closed doors, was scheduled to do so publicly on March 20. On Wednesday, his lawyers told House Oversight Chairman James Comer he won’t be there.

“To begin, even if that hearing was a legitimate exercise of congressional authority, neither Mr. Biden nor I can attend because of a court hearing the very next day in California,” Attorney Abbe David Lowell wrote in the letter.  “The scheduling conflict is the least of the issues, however. Your blatant planned-for-media event is not a proper proceeding but an obvious attempt to throw a Hail Mary pass after the game has ended.”

As author and legal analyst Jonathan Hurley remembered, this is the same Abbe Lowell who declared, “Let the light shine on these hearings.”

Is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Going to Pick Aaron Rogers as His Running Mate? And Why Was Media So Quick to Blitz the QB?

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is preparing to announce his running mate on March 26 in Oakland, and a couple of names you’re hearing will turn some heads: Wrestler-turned-actor-turned Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura and … New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rogers. RFK Jr. confirmed Wednesday to Fox News that Rogers is on his short list, describing him as “battle tested.”

“We want somebody young who’s going to look out for that generation. Aaron Rodgers is battle-tested. He’s stood up. He’s been hammered by the press, stood up for things we believe in,” he said. “I like that part of his character. He’s a critical thinker, and I think we need that at the time as you know the rise of [artificial intelligence].”

To give you some idea how worried Democrats are about RFK Jr. being a spoiler in this eledtion, the media in near unison, starting with CNN, immediately went after Rogers, claiming he was a Sandy Hook school massacre denier, a charge Rogers rejected.

Are you surprised? Don’t be. Thursday was also filled with stories about how the DNC is, in NBC News’ words, prepared to “go to war against third-party candidates.”  

Good thing Aaron Rogers knows how to pick up blitzes.
