‘Voters couldn’t name anything’ the party has accomplished

Democrats have determined that their “entire brand” is “a wreck.”

That’s according to a Politico report that explained how party strategists descended on Virginia after their candidate for governor, Terry McAuliffe, bombed badly.

In addition, approval ratings for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been abysmal, and the GOP is expected by many analysts to take over control of both the House and Senate next year.

Some have even openly speculated IF, not how, Biden will finish his term.

Those strategists, the report said, found something “even worse than expected. The problems cut far deeper than the failings of their gubernatorial nominee, Terry McAuliffe, or President Joe Biden’s flagging approval ratings. Rather, the Democratic Party’s entire brand was a wreck.”

“Voters couldn’t name anything that Democrats had done, except a few who said we passed the infrastructure bill,” the center-left group Third Way and its pollsters said in a report.

Politico said it obtained a copy of the report.

“Most of the voters Third Way spoke with in suburban Virginia focus groups, according to the report, ‘could not articulate what Democrats stand for. They could also not say what they are doing in Washington, besides fighting,'” the report said.Is the Democratic Party brand ‘a wreck’?Yes No  Completing this poll entitles you to WND news updates free of charge.

And those are the ones who voted for Biden.

The result is that Democrats are “confronting an identity crisis.”

In fact, the report said one strategist “who advises major donors” concluded, “Too late. We’re f—–.”

Politico reported, “The findings in Virginia fall in line with public and private polling nationally in recent weeks. Biden’s approval rating, a measure closely tied to a party’s performance in the midterms, has fallen to below 43 percent, according to the FiveThirtyEight polling average. That’s far worse than Barack Obama’s was at this point in his presidency, prior to the Democrats’ midterm wipe-out in 2010.”

In fact, some polls have had Biden’s approval in the mid to upper 30s, and Harris’ a full 10 points lower.

Polls also show Americans picking Republicans over Democrats on ballots, and 60% saying Biden has the country on the wrong track.

“Voters believe the economy is bad, and no amount of stats can change their mind (at least in the short term),” the Third Way report said. “Jobs numbers, wage numbers, and the number of people we’ve put back to work don’t move them. We should still talk about these (more the wage and back-to-work numbers), but we should realize that they will have limited impact when people are seeing help wanted signs all over main street, restaurant sections closed for lack of workers, rising prices, and supply disruptions. Even where things are getting better, Biden doesn’t get credit.”

2024 blowout brewing: Trump crushing Biden with astonishing lead

Results follow months of bad polls for Biden since withdrawal from Afghanistan

WND News ServicesBy WND News Services
Published November 24, 2021 at 3:44pm

(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — In what would be one of the biggest political comebacks in American history, former President Donald Trump has surged into a double-digit lead over President Joe Biden in the latest 2024 matchup poll.

In today’s Rasmussen Reports survey, likely voters picked Trump to beat Biden, 45% to 32% if the election were held today, a gap that is even higher among independents who have become the critical swing group. They chose Trump 47%-20%.

Rasmussen reported a sizable number of voters who want someone else, at 17%, and just 6% said they were on the fence. Also: 15% of Democrats said they’d vote for Trump compared to 8% of Republicans who’d pick Biden.

America’s fateful choice: Restore elections or kill the republic

Nation on the brink of total meltdown

One year before the 2022 midterm elections, the United States of America, long the freest, most powerful and most successful nation on earth, is on the brink of total meltdown.

Power-obsessed politicians in thrall to a bizarre, quasi-religious ideology, seemingly oblivious to the destruction and suffering they’re causing, daily implement new agendas that crush America’s great middle class, her economy and her most hallowed institutions.

Staging this revolution from behind their shockingly senile puppet president, Joe Biden, they have fomented a full-scale invasion of the U.S. mainland, mandated that tens of millions of citizens be injected with an experimental new drug or lose their jobs, and heedlessly created Third World-style inflation, shortages, poverty, drug addiction and runaway crime. And they’re just getting started.

Ironically, America’s current ruling elites hate the very nation they govern, daily condemning it as irredeemably racist, when in reality it is indisputably the least racist nation in human history.

TRENDING: Christmas horror in Wisconsin: Mass-casualty event at parade

Ignoring reality at every turn, they manifest an abiding contempt for biology, the lessons of history, the fundamental laws of economics, the transcendent value of human life, and especially, for God and His laws.

On top of all this, their current figureheads – Joe Biden and Kamala Harris – are unlikable, meanspirited, pathologically dishonest, and in Biden’s case, cognitively disintegrating in real time before the entire world. Harris is so singularly repellant that the Biden administration has essentially kept her hidden since Day 1.

So phantasmagoric has 2021 become, Team Biden appears to be engaged in an “Alice in Wonderland”-type intramural competition to determine who in the administration can be the most deranged: Biden is winning, with his straight-faced claims that his planned multi-trillion-dollar spending orgy “costs zero dollars” and will reduce inflation. But Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is giving him stiff competition with his assertion that many of America’s highways are racist, as is Vice President Kamala Harris, who recently asked NASA if it can possibly “track trees” by race to assure “environmental justice.”

No wonder every recent poll shows voters of both parties are running away, as fast as possible, from Biden and Harris. As USA Today reported in early November, “The approval ratings for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have reached dismal new lows, according to a stunning, just-released poll. In a survey published Sunday by USA Today, the president’s approval rating stands at just 38 percent. … USA Today found that just 28 percent of those surveyed approve of Kamala Harris at the moment.”

Thus, for the ascendent Democratic Party, every bit as addicted to power as a drug addict is to heroin or fentanyl, the only question is: How can Democrats possibly retain their power in light of the growing awareness among the American electorate that their current leaders and policies are basically insane? How, they ask themselves, can they not only avoid losing control of the U.S. Congress in the November 2022 election and the presidency in 2024, but also continue to elect and re-elect Democrats as governors, state legislators, secretaries of state, mayors, Soros-funded district attorneys and other vital “down-ballot” positions?

In light of voters’ ever-plummeting approval of them, there’s only one conceivable solution for Democrats.

Cheating.

Rigging elections. Voter fraud. Changing the rules. Big tech censorship. Shooting down voter ID laws. Shutting out election observers. Eliminating signature verification for mail-in ballots. “Ballot harvesting.” Basically, exploiting every imaginable opportunity to enable, abet, promote, excuse and encourage election-related fraud and abuse in its myriad and ever-expanding forms, all the while vehemently denying it even when caught red-handed – just as in 2020. And, of course, simultaneously accusing everyone demanding fair elections of being white supremacists and terrorists intent on “voter suppression” and implementing “Jim Crow 2.0.”

That is why election integrity is, without question, the most important issue in America today. It is literally the singular key to whether the greatest nation on earth lives – or dies.

And that is why the November 2021 issue of WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine – titled “AMERICA’S FATEFUL CHOICE: RESTORE ELECTIONS OR KILL THE REPUBLIC” – is entirely focused on how, specifically, America can and must assure that the elections in 2022, 2024 and beyond are fair, honest, transparent and trustworthy. For if they are, the deranged and destructive Marxist revolution in America is over.

Biden Admin. to Reverse Trump-Era Religious Liberty Protections for Contractors

Joe Biden, ACLU requests Biden enforce taxpayer funding of abortion within his first 100 days as president

This week, the Biden administration announced a plan to reverse a Trump-era policy that supporters said protected the religious liberty of federal contractors and put them “on an equal footing” with other contractors.

At issue is a Trump Department of Labor rule that was initially proposed in 2019 but went into effect in the final days of the Trump administration. The new rule expanded religious exemptions for contractors related to non-discrimination laws by declaring that a religious organization is eligible for federal contracts and is exempt from non-discrimination laws if it is “organized for a religious purpose” and “holds itself out to the public as carrying out a religious purpose.”

Eugene Scalia, the Trump administration’s Secretary of Labor, defended the new rule last year by saying that “religious organizations should not have to fear that acceptance of a federal contract or subcontract will require them to abandon their religious character or identity.” The Family Research Council said the rule would “protect religious liberty” by requiring that federal agencies “allow faith adherents to compete for federal contracts on an equal footing with anyone else.”

Craig E. Leen, the Trump administration’s director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, said at the time the administration was “committed to protecting religious liberty, while ensuring vigorous enforcement of the anti-discrimination laws the agency administers.”

The Biden Department of Labor announced on Monday a proposal to rescind the Trump-era rule.

Religious organizations’ beliefs about sexual orientation and gender identity are at the heart of the issue. The Obama administration banned contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Biden rule would “ensure that” the “religious exemption is applied consistent with principles and case law interpreting the Title VII religious exemption,” a news release said.

The proposal “would protect against discrimination and safeguard principles of religious freedom,” said Jenny R. Yang, director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.

The Biden rule would narrow the exemption to include only “employers whose purpose and character are primarily religious,” a news release said.

Consumer prices surge by most in 31 years

Prices rose 6.2% year over year in October

https://static.foxnews.com/static/orion/html/video/iframe/vod.html?v=20211109215733#uid=fnc-embed-1&url=www.foxbusiness.com%2Feconomy%2Fconsumer-price-index-october-2021

Inflation won’t ‘get better until it gets worse’: Expert

The consumer price index climbed 6.2% year over year in October, the Labor Department said. The increase marked the largest annual gain since November 1990. Prices rose 0.9% month over month. 

Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting prices to rise 0.6% in October and 5.8% annually.

“Inflation is broadening out,” said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate. “In addition to food, energy, and shelter continuing to post outsized monthly increases, new and used car prices are once again shifting into overdrive.”

INFLATION WILL LIKELY GET WORSE BEFORE IT STARTS IMPROVING, GOLDMAN WARNS

Energy prices jumped 4.8% last month, and were up 30% over the past year. The October increase was largely the result of a 6.1% rise in the cost of gasoline. 

Food prices, meanwhile, edged up 0.9% last month as the food at home category saw a 1% increase. All food prices are up 5.3% year over year.

Also contributing to the rise were new and used vehicle prices, which in October rose 1.4% and 2.5%, respectively. Prices for new vehicles were 9.8% above year-ago levels while used vehicle prices were up 26.4% from October 2020.

The cost of shelter ticked up 0.5% last month and was 3.5% above year-ago levels. 

“We’re seeing early signs of an inflationary surge that’s likely to persist, with companies responding to rising input costs with cost increases of their own, which in turn causes higher input costs for others,” said Brad Armstrong, partner at Lovell Minnick Partners. “It’s a cycle that repeats itself.”  

Wednesday’s hotter-than-expected report surely caught the attention of the Federal Reserve, which earlier this month announced plans to taper its $120 billion per month in asset purchases while taking notice of “elevated” inflation. The central bank still expects inflation to be “transitory.”

The Fed will later this month begin scaling back its purchases of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities by $15 billion a month, which puts its asset-purchase program on pace to end in June. Markets are currently pricing in the first rate hike to occur in July 2022.

#AxeTheVax: Nationwide Walkout & Stand for Freedom taking place this week

#AxeTheVax: Nationwide Walkout & Stand for Freedom taking place
this week

http://www.wnd.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/vaccine-vaccination-shot-medicine-2-Pixabay.jpg by http://www.wnd.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/vaccine-vaccination-shot-medicine-2-Pixabay.jpg is licensed under http://www.wnd.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/vaccine-vaccination-shot-medicine-2-Pixabay.jpg


The movement was started by regular every-day American workers reaching out to Dundas and others looking for a way to join together collectively in order to have their actions felt, and their voices heard. “This nationwide walkout has spread like wildfire, with white collar professionals joining the supply chain workers and truckers — and employees from every industry and all faiths, creeds, races and political affiliations — now pledging they will strike during the week of November 8, as a statement that jobs should never be conditioned on medical mandates and tyranny,” Dundas said.

Up until now, there have been intermittent protests across the country regarding vaccine mandates and there have been well-publicized business interruptions that may have been linked to worker “call-ins” but not reported as such. Recent flight cancellations at both Southwest and American airlines may have been contributed to by such employee uprisings. 

Advocates for Citizens’ Rights, a California non-profit founded by attorney Leigh Dundas, along with Robert Kennedy Jr.’s organization Children’s Health Defense have joined other high-profile groups and individuals to promote a Nationwide Walkout & Stand for Freedom to take place November 8-11. The purpose of the voluntary work strike is to protest vaccine mandates in the workplace. This event carries the social media hashtag of #AxeTheVax.

Dundas emphasizes the grassroots effort that started this effort, but also points to how it has been noticed by influencers across the board. “When influencers heard about this grass-roots movement, they decided it should be given a microphone, although it’s important to note that none of these individuals or groups condone illegal strikes or walkouts that are in contravention of applicable law or contract.” 

Some names recognizable to members of the current movement in the U.S. protesting authoritarian government action are Clay Clark & General Flynn, co-hosts of the Re-Awaken America Tour, and Dr. Simone Gold of America’s Frontline Doctors, along with Ann Vandersteel and Doug Billings, to name just a few.

The work boycott is being especially encouraged in the industries of goods manufacturing and supply chain, aerospace and telecom, healthcare and transportation, and government sectors. While those are specifically mentioned targets, everyone is encouraged to participate if they support the objective of standing against mandatory vaccinations (assuming they are not prohibited from striking by contract or law).

Dundas says that this is a response to what many attorneys, judges, and others believe are the unconstitutional actions of the Biden administration in imposing vaccine mandates. She makes it clear she is not standing alone. “Couple weeks ago, I started getting calls from the blue-collar guys.  You know, the folks who actually run this country.  Because Americans don’t often have cause to reflect on this simple truth, but the fact is that this country does not run on the back of people like you and me.  It runs on the backs of blue-collar workers who make products, and who move products.”

Dundas continued, “The blue-collar folks I talked to were working at large companies that were 40%, 50%, and often as high as 75% unvaccinated — and willing to hold the line. These guys are drawing a line in the sand, making a stand for freedom.  And I believe in my core that the week of November 8 will go down in the history books as the day that freedom rose up, tyrannical mandates went on the run, and history was changed for the better.”

‘Satanic tracker’ and vaccine mandate suddenly place news reporters at risk

‘You have been warned’

Journalists at one news agency have become embroiled in piercing controversy over reports of a company-imposed vaccine mandate and claims by its White House correspondent the COVID shot contains a satanic marker allowing people to be tracked.

On Friday, Newsmax anchor Steve Cortes indicated he would defy the COVID-vaccine mandate his own company purportedly issued the previous day.

“I will not comply w/ any organization’s attempt to enforce Biden’s capricious & unscientific Medical Apartheid mandate. I will not be forced into the injection, nor will I disclose my vaccination status,” Cortes tweeted late Friday.

“No one should be pressured to choose between medical privacy & their job.”

The news outlet is reportedly ordering all workers to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 4, 2022, or face a weekly COVID test.

“To ensure that we are in compliance, we require that all vaccinated employees submit a copy of their vaccination card,” the email stated.

Thursday night on the air, Cortes blasted mandates as an example of “dictatorial rule” under President Joe Biden.

Cortes said: “There is zero, and I mean zero, moral or ethical obligation for anyone to be compelled to get vaccinated,” adding mandates are “insane workplace discrimination.”

On Sunday, Newsmax denied it’s forcing employees to get the COVID shot.

“Newsmax has no vaccine mandate nor do we require it for employment,” it wrote in an editorial in which it called the rule “a dangerous overreach of federal power and opposed by Newsmax.”

It says the company “informed our staff of the upcoming federal rule. At the same time, we have notified staff we will create an easy opt-out for any employee who does not want to be vaccinated.”

“Under the rule, any employee who is not vaccinated will be tested for COVID on a weekly basis,” the editorial explained, noting, “Newsmax is going beyond the OSHA rule to provide free weekly testing on its company premises.”

‘Satanic’ tracking
Earlier in the week, Newsmax yanked its own White House correspondent Emerald Robinson off the air, at least temporarily, after she tweeted a warning to Christians about a substance in the Moderna COVID vaccine that she believes can be used to track people.

Robinson posted: “Dear Christians: the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked. Read the last book of the New Testament to see how this ends.”
