Does the GOP have a 'Feinstein problem,' too?

Original Article

Are the Democrats the only ones with a "Dianne Feinstein" problem, that of entrenched leaders who are visibly shambling apart, yet impossible to remove from power? Sure looks like it, with the sudden seize or freeze up of Senate Minotiry Leader Mitch McConnell yesterday: Here is the tweeted video of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnelll, aged 83 suddenly going silent during a speech: (Snip for tweet) We've seen this sort of incapacity in Feinstein, a 90-year old Democrat whose infirmities should require her to retire from office, and in Democrat Sen. John Fetterman, who cannot plausibly serve in his post-stroke condition, as well in Joe Biden himself,


It does with doddering McConnell.

McConnell's age is the least of our problems. He may have been a conservative at one time. But after so many years in the DC sewer, he has devolved into a massive RINO Republi-Can't who only cares about his own wealth and power!!!!! About 75% of Congress is living proof that we need Congressional term limits -- two terms in the House OR the Senate, or one term in each. Then you are gone. No retirement. No special benefits. And a ban on having anything to do with the federal government (working for government agencies, being on a president's cabinet, and especially being a lobbyist) for at least 6 years!!!!! No more professional politicians getting rich and fat on the taxpayers' backs. A true citizen's government!!!!

It is past time for him to retire, and though Reps are saying nothing to be concerned about he clearly was having some kind of neurological episode, that and the fact he is chief rhino in the senate. He's gotta go.

There needs to be an age limit for these people...instead there is a 'capital' limit and none of them have reached it yet...someone once said you can't get rich as a politician unless you are a crook...

Mitch has been barely able to do his job for quite some time. The reality of it has been expertly covered up by his Senate pals, staff and MSM. Yes, he is every bit as bad as Feinstein. He has fallen numerous times the last year. It is a disgrace that this corrupt RINO kept in his job by KY voters so long. Yes, there is a KY gubernatorial election in December but who has real hope Mitch will be forced out even if a Republican wins?

Agree with all comments. It will be very interesting to see whether the democrats try to score any points with this since many of them lack any self-awareness. They're between a rock and a hard place on this one. If we hear even one peep out of them over this, their massive hypocrisy will be in full display for all to see. Although it might be fun to see the mockery and Twitter slams that come their way and those would certainly be well-deserved.

My daughter has been an RN for 22 years and watched the video. She said it appears that he may have had a TIA which is indeed a precursor to a stroke. She also said that his head injury he suffered during that recent fall could have very well contributed to the TIA. Yes, Turtle is elderly. But a TIA can happen to anyone at anytime. There was a story about a gal who was an anchor at a local news station and she had a TIA right on air and she wasn't that old either. Yes we have an elder problem in Congress, but I won't slam Turtle for having a TIA.

Yes, we do. Anyone in office who is north of 75 needs to go unless they can prove they have stamina. Di and Turkey prove otherwise every day. The congress-critters need to undergo annual physical and psychological tests, but they'd corrupt that too. Oh heck! drag them all!

Maui disaster response

In Maui, a disaster of epic proportions is unfolding, one week after wildfires razed its historic city of Lahaina. It's not just that there was little warning and a chaotic evacuation. Now it's the body count -- 99 people are confirmed dead now, and some 1,000 remain missing. If they're dead, and Lahaina has only 12,000 people, the math isn't pretty -- ten percent of the population may be dead, which has a whiff of Ukraine. The cadaver dogs, with rarified training to detect bodies incinerated to ash in flames, are far too few for a mass casualty event like this, so they still have 75%

Hawaii had the world's fanciest natural disaster warning system on the planet. It also had an ongoing firebug problem, and recent academic study warning that the place was very vulnerable to fire catastrophes. Somehow, none of that figured in the government's fire plan. The firebug is still out there. The conditions created for big fires, such as the proliferation of non-native grasses, remain on Maui. And the fancy emergency warning system somehow didn't work. Never mind any of that: Its governor says the problem is global warming.

A sudden, unexpected, and devastating fire has destroyed the lovely little heritage town of Lahaina on Maui, which for Hawaii, was also a vibrant tourist destination. Thirty-six people at last count were killed and given that this is early in the catastrophe and communications about evacuations were down early, it may rise. The town and all its historic artifacts, its Front Street promenade, named one of the "top ten greatest streets" by the American Planning Association, are gone. Lahaina's giant banyan tree, planted in 1873, and the largest in the U.S., is subject to on-again, off-again reports about whether it survived the inferno. We still don't know.

Joe Biden is a miserable failure as president across the board, but few examples are quite as vivid as his failure in Latin America where he is doing literally nothing as the place goes to hell in a handbasket. The neglect is so bad even Democrats are embarrassed. According to Politico: Biden’s diplomatic team has spent most of his first term trying to rebuild alliances in Europe and Asia stressed by former President Donald Trump’s brash nationalism. They have only recently started to turn their attention to Latin America, but lawmakers and corporate officials alike say those efforts are scant — and their patience is starting to wear thin.

Once upon a time, New York City's top urban planning strongman, Robert Moses, built highways and bridges across and into New York City, aiming to stop traffic congestion. And more of them. And more. Moses is why New York City has the Triborough Bridge, the Brooklyn-Battery Link, Interstate 278, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and many other passageways. He built them all, and then he built some more. And as every journalism student, having read Robert Caro's The Power Broker, would know, Moses was astonished. Instead of less traffic coming into Manhattan from the outer boroughs and beyond -- there was more. Manhattan became more traffic-congested than ever as a result,

Some eighty-one percent of Democrat voters are perfectly happy to keep supporting Joe Biden for reelection to the presidency. But there's one subcategory among them that is scaring the heck out of Democrat pollsters: Black men, whose support for the old dotard has cratered. Biden is down by thirty points among this normally loyal political group. A very significant number just don't want to vote for him. According to the Daily Caller, citing a Washington Post report: Black voters are significantly less enthused about a Biden reelection campaign than they were in 2020, with only 55% saying they’re likely to support him in 2024, according to an early May AP/NORC poll.

President Trump has had a lot of ups and downs in his real estate career, which means his relations with banks and credit can be pretty dicey. The matter was made worse for him in the wake of the January 6 protests, where wokester banks outright cut him off. His Trump Organization financial operation however did find a bank that would loan to his organization, a relatively small bank in San Diego called Axos Bank. and that set the Washington Post scrambling to look for some seedy Biden-style corruption. They found nothing. They must have spent some time on this, however, because they ran a story, and had to satisfy themselves with innuendo

Mexico's incoming foreign minister, Alicia Barcena, said last week that the barrier violates a water treaty and may intrude on Mexican territory. "We don't have to do much, just tell our compatriots not to vote for the governor of Texas or for lawmakers of the Republican Party who support these measures," Lopez Obrador said in a press conference when asked about the Texan initiative.

Of course, Ron DeSantis can come back and win. Anybody in the race can win – we saw Trump come back in 2016 when most everyone wrote him off in the general. Now it’s the Florida governor’s turn to be written off, but he’s not exactly in the same place that Trump was. DeSantis is a strong second right now. For him, it’s not a matter of a miracle happening, threading a bunch of needles to win the general when rational betters would bet against you like in 2016. No, Ron DeSantis has a plan, and there’s a method to his muddling through.

Hawaii's governor has said that the terrifying fire tornados that tore though the island's buildings were '1,000 degrees' - as it's revealed warning sirens did not go off. The blazes on the island of Maui have now become the deadliest wildfires in modern US history - killing 93 people - and authorities are still working to identify the victims. Hawaii Gov. Josh Green described the wildfire as a 'fire hurricane' - blowing 80mph winds and reaching temperatures of up to '1,000-degree heat.' Meanwhile, Hawaii Emergency Services Administration said Friday: 'Neither Maui nor HI-EMA activated warning sirens on Maui during the wildfire incident.'
