COLUMBIA, S.C.— Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina made it official Friday: He’s running for president.Scott, the Senate’s only Black Republican, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission declaring his intention to seek his party’s nomination in 2024. His candidacy will test whether a more optimistic vision of America’s future can resonate with GOP voters who have elevated partisan brawlers in recent years. The deeply religious 57-year-old former insurance broker has made his grandfather’s work in the cotton fields of the Deep South a bedrock of his political identity. Yet he rejects the notion that racism remains a powerful force in society, and he has cast his candidacy and rise from

All this is - is a money grab. He's polling near zero, has no donors and is jockeying for a seat at the MAGA table once Trump is re-elected.

I doubt he can poll enough numbers to get on the stage. Even if he does, it will take Trump about 2 seconds to push him off.

A crowded primary benefits Trump. In 2016 I think Trump received the majority of votes in only one state. He did, however, consistently win the plurality and therefore the nomination. With numerous candidates the anti-Trump vote will be dispersed. If facing just one serious and accomplished opponent, who knows what would be the result.

The increasingly crowded primary also suggests that the newcomers don’t perceive DeSantis as the strong challenger he seemed to be. They see the polls, they see how the endorsements are going Trump’s way, and they are telling themselves there is an opportunity to elbow a diminished DeSantis out of the way and become the Trump alternative.

The more people on our side giving voice to conservative positions, the better. Ramaswamy, Scott, DeSantis. I hope one of these guys will stay in the contest to the end, so that if Trump dies of exhaustion a year from now, we are not left with Chris Christie as a nominee. We need Plan B and Plan C.

Mexican authorities on Sunday raised the warning level for the Popocatepetl volcano to one step below red alert as smoke, ash and molten rock spewed into the sky posing risks to aviation and far-flung communities below. The huge volcano that towers above Mexico City is considered one of the most dangerous in the world because some 25 million people live within a 60-mile radius. Sunday's increased alert level - to 'yellow phase three' - comes a day after two Mexico City airports temporarily halted operations due to falling ash, which also forced 11 villages to cancel school sessions.

Tim Scott (R-SC) to the crowded Republican primary field by wishing his longtime Senate ally “good luck.” “Good luck to Senator Tim Scott in entering the Republican Presidential Primary Race,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “It is rapidly loading up with lots of people, and Tim is a big step up from Ron DeSanctimonious, who is totally unelectable.” (Snip) “I got Opportunity Zones done with Tim, a big deal that has been highly successful,” Trump added. “Good luck Tim!” Moments after Trump’s statement, Scott took the stage in South Carolina to announce his bid for the Republican nomination.

Here are a few examples: Reparations How could a dysfunctional state like California even contemplate $800 billion in reparations? The state currently faces a $31 billion annual deficit—and it’s climbing. Its $100 billion high-speed rail project is inert, a veritable Stonehenge of concrete monoliths with a foot of track. California’s income tax rates are already the highest in the nation. Its sales taxes, electricity rates, and gas taxes and prices are among the steepest in the country. And for what?

A good Samaritan, according to the Oxford Learner’s Dictionary is, “a person who gives help and sympathy to people who need it”. This concept goes back to Biblical times, specifically the book of Luke, chapter 10, and the “Parable of the Good Samaritan.” Jesus told the story of a man who was robbed, beaten, and left for dead. A priest and a Levite both saw the beaten man and walked past him, crossing to the other side of the street. But the Samaritan stopped to help the injured man, attending to his wounds, bringing him to an inn, paying the innkeeper to care for him until he was well.

The US Supreme Court has stated, “the interest of parents in the care, custody and control of their children—is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court.”

Every so often, the race industry in America — let’s call it what it is — seemingly feels like they are not getting enough attention, and so they come forward with some new absurd way to get that attention, apparently clinging to the notion that there is no such thing as bad publicity. The latest to attempt that is far-left congressional squad member, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO). Bush has glommed onto an idea that is certainly not new and is hugely unpopular with roughly half the country. But Bush has decided to give it the old college try and float it once again.

Worried about too much systemic rigging and fraud for a Republican ever to win office again? Good news! The riggers themselves are quietly starting to worry it may happen. Politico ran a story on Friday, and I must say, the title quickened my pulse.

They ran into a wall of complacency, partisanship and distraction.” As if Leftists would have done a single thing to curtail executive overreach while they held office. Puh-lease.

We may have already crossed that Rubicon. Exhibit A is the argument that waking up early is actually White Supremacy™.

A silence kept in order to hide the truth is a lie. By that maxim, there are plenty of liars among prominent Democrats who knew that the damning Trump-Russia collusion narrative was all a hoax. But they chose to remain mum, preferring instead to watch contentedly as an American president was vilified nonstop by a media-driven orgy of lies. It consumed the nation for years and inflicted untold harm. None of them had the decency to volunteer the truth.

Appearing for a televised interview Sunday, the California rep offered some insight as to what transpired between him and director Christopher Wray on the Friday call, which came a day after feds rebuffed a subpoena requesting the still unseen report. The official request was sent by House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, and pertained to a prospective financial form that several GOP lawmakers claim lays out an 'alleged criminal scheme' involving Biden and an unnamed foreign national.
