Freshman Alabama Sen. Katie Britt has been chosen by Republicans to deliver the rebuttal to President Biden's State of the Union address next week. The GOP's rising star won her Senate seat in 2022 after serving as a long-time staffer of outgoing Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby. Britt is the first woman to hold an Alabama Senate seat and at 42, the youngest Republican woman to be elected to the Senate. Trump had endorsed Britt in her 2022 primary after flipping on former Rep. Mo Brooks, who he'd first endorsed. (Photo) The president will address a joint session of Congress before her rebuttal

Donald Trump should have been the choice. Drive-by media whores are choosing ti block his access to the American people through delayed or "fact-checked" commentary during his remarks. At least in this case they'd have to carry it.

Fire, floods and pestilence abound - but sure - send out a freshman. Can't be worse than the seasoned, experienced gasbag weenies, who, came to this decision.

She presents herself well when appearing on Kudlow. Polished, wears a cross. I think she'll do a good job.

I always hated that and rarely watch. It is the President's duty to give that SOTU by whatever vehicle he chooses. usually it s an overhyped speech loaded with applause lines and complete BS. There is never a word of truth in them and its no secret. The other side does not need to give a counter speech and it really looks pathetic when they do.

Time will tell. Her political mentor was Senator Shelby, a uniparty democrat who switched to Republican when the political winds switched in Alabama.

I could never really watch these things, even when I liked the president. Too much ridiculous applause. I'd need a stiff drink to watch Biden and I don't drink at all.

#4, a cross and Bible (and frequently, the family praying) are prerequisites when running political ads in Alabama. There were excellent candidates for Shelby’s seat. But the National Uniparty, in conjunction with the Alabama grand poobahs, chose Kkkkkkkatie to run as the “Republican” candidate. I suspect she’s found the money trail already.

Poster #2 is correct. Stupid - - gutless - - brain-dead - - useless Pubbies should not only have chosen President Trump - - they should also have him deliver the speech from the same podium - - right after Despicable Joe shuffles off. But - - you can never expect the Pubbies to be bold or creative. Never - - ever.

Perhaps being a freshman senator, she has yet to be indoctrinated by the Swamp. I hope she spends a lot of time talking about illegals and rising crime.

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Gov.

Just when the White House thought the worst had passed regarding The New York Times' disastrous poll for Joe Biden, Sunday morning brought us the second half of the equation. In the first release, the survey showed Donald Trump leading the current president by five points. That led to a bout of cross-tab "truther-ism" in which liberals showed they have no idea how polling works. Whatever penchant Republicans had for dismissing or trying to "un-skew" polls in past cycles, Democrats have firmly taken up that mantle, and it's hilarious to see.

RALEIGH, N.C. — Former president Donald Trump endorsed North Carolina Lt. Gov Mark Robinson for governor on Saturday, several months after the former president pledged to do so. At a rally at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, the former president also compared Robinson, who is Black, to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the famed civil rights leader. He referred to Robinson as “Martin Luther King on steroids.” Trump said Robinson wasn’t sure how to respond when Trump compared him to the legendary civil rights leader, telling him: “I think you’re better than Martin Luther King. I think you are Martin Luther King times two.” “You should like it,” Trump said.

Times Square is evacuated after a grenade was found in the back of Uber as anti-Israel protestors make their way through New York City preventing NYPD from reaching the device. The explosive device was located in the backseat of the vehicle in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday. An Uber driver turned to look in the backseat after dropping a passenger off on 42nd Street and 7th Avenue in Times Square and saw the explosive device. The driver notified the police just after 4 pm and NYPD deployed the Emergency Services Unit and the Bomb Squad to the scene.

Many of us have experienced people in our lives who build a certain narrative which we accept despite evidence before our eyes. Sometimes it’s easier to accept the narrative, sometimes the benefit of the relationship outweighs the cost of facing the facts. Very often, there comes a time when the dam we built to hold the facts away from our consciousness breaks. That is usually a critical moment. The same holds for our relationship with government. We all have accepted a certain narrative about our government. The less informed talk about a “democracy.”

Oregon has reportedly voted to reverse its hard drug decriminalization because of the overdose epidemic now affecting the state. In 2020, almost 60 percent of Oregon voters approved Measure 110, which decriminalized the possession of relatively small amounts of hard drugs, including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl. The measure predictably led to Oregon becoming a den of drug addicts and drug overdoses.

Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of California… Illegal aliens will get interest-free home mortgage loans under a new California bill. Democrat assemblymember Joaquin Arambula (Fresno) recently introduced Assembly Bill 1840 to extend a first-time homebuyer loan program to illegal aliens. If the bill becomes law, illegal aliens will be eligible for a new program that offers a loan worth 20% of the purchase price of the residential property. There are no monthly payments and no interest accrues on the loan. Rather, the loan is paid back when the borrower refinances or sells the property.

The drill site, just outside Babbitt in the northeastern part of the state, took about a month from initially breaking ground to get to a depth of 2,200 feet. What it found there, Pulsar Helium CEO Thomas Abraham-James called “a dream.” “There was a lot of screaming, a lot of hugging and high fives. It’s nice to know the efforts all worked out and we pulled it off,” Abraham-James told WCCO. He said that the concentration of helium sampled was 12.4 percent — about 30 times

James alleged that officials were "misleading the public" about the JBS USA's environmental impact, namely via their claim that the company would "achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040" while still planning to "increase production*, and therefore increase its carbon footprint.

CNN has been desperately treading water for years now. The former king of cable news has been bleeding ratings for years, with Fox News typically topping all the networks night after night. CNN still fancies itself the "most trusted name in news," yet, even former CEO Chris Licht admitted last year that that trust — assuming at one point they actually had it — is long gone and they need to restore it. He didn't last long. The problem, of course, is that CNN claims to be fair and without bias, yet anti-conservative views have long been part of its DNA,
