Biden’s State of the Union; a Reset for Voters?

Only in Fairy Tales, Twitter Bots and MSNBC BREAKING BATTLEGROUNDS By Chuck Warren Axios reported this past week about the “Biden Reset.” In it, they wrote that “Biden officials see next month’s State of the Union address as a big, public reset moment — a chance to overcome or at least neutralize concerns about President Biden’s age and vitality.” Furthermore, “Many top Democrats are convinced that if the election were today, Biden would lose a rematch with former President Trump.…

Here’s Why There Won’t Be Any More Mitt Romneys

“If Romney cares about leaving a lasting legacy, he would have prioritized identifying, training, promoting, and otherwise grooming a group of young, like-minded conservatives in Utah who share his values and philosophy. In other words, he should have built a machine. This necessarily requires being involved in the state and local Republican parties, which control money, ballot access, registration of voters, etc. His political aides could have managed it and made this project a priority…

It is a day for me to attend church, commune with the Divine, and handwrite personal correspondence to friends, family, and associates.

Arizona puts Trump’s political influence to the test

Arizona is shaping up to be the next high-stakes test of Donald Trump’s political power, as the former president’s endorsed candidates face off against a slate of establishment-backed Republicans. The proxy battle kicks into high gear this weekend when Trump will hold a rally Friday for his favored candidates, including gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake, while former Vice President Mike Pence will stump for one of Lake’s opponents, Karrin Taylor Robson.

Can Kari Lake Be Stopped?

By Matt Lewis, Senior Columnist – Beating back Donald Trump and beating back Trumpism are both vital, if different, goals. Although there are signs his hold is weakening, Trump, the man, still holds plenty of sway in the Republican Party. But his ability to spread Trumpism, by virtue of his endorsed acolytes, is not nearly as impressive. Arizona’s primary voters have another chance to stop Trumpism in its tracks on Aug. 2. It’s two weeks to slow the spread. I’m…
