(FreedomWire.org) – Elon Musk announced Wednesday he that voted for a Mexican-American immigrant for Congress and was accused of upholding “white supremacy” by a black Democrat.

Musk, who was born and raised in South Africa, announced Wednesday that for the “first time” ever voting Republican, he voted for Mayra Flores.

“Massive red wave in 2022,” Musk added.

His tweet to anger Democratic New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman, who accused Musk of upholding white supremacy.

“Elon Musk is not a leader,” Bowman tweeted. “He’s just another Republican billionaire who supports white supremacy and authoritarianism because he doesn’t want his workers to unionize or to pay his fair share in taxes. The GOP just tried to end democracy and now he’s supporting them.”

Musk, who has described himself as a long-time Democrat, announced in May he would vote Republican in the upcoming midterms.

“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party,” Musk tweeted recently. “But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”

(FreedomWire,org) – When Georgia revised its election laws in 2021, the National Urban League called it, “one of the most insidious partisan attacks on voting rights in history.”  

The law’s changes included, measures to prevent government agencies from mailing applications unsolicited, require using driver’s licenses or some other form of photo ID instead of signature-matching to verify their identity in absentee ballot applications, and codifying ballot drop boxes into law. It mandated precincts hold at least 17 days of early voting and left in place no-excuse absentee voting, while shortening the window to apply for ballots to 67 days. 

The left wanted Americans to believe that somehow adds up to a stunning and unprecedented voting-suppression mechanism. 

Democratic politicians weighed in, to condemn Georgia’s law.

“It’s racist…Jim Crow in a suit and tie,” said Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams

“A large step…away from democracy and freedom and toward authoritarianism and repression,” said New Jersey senator Cory Booker  

“Anti-American, racist, and a betrayal of our Constitution,” said California Rep. Ro Khanna

President Joe Biden, made a characteristically garbled comparison that ended up saying the opposite of what he intended, “This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle…I mean, this is gigantic!”

Activists called for boycotts of Delta Air Lines, Home Depot and other companies headquartered in the Peach State. “The pressure isn’t going to relent on @CocaCola and other Georgia-based companies over this Georgia Jim Crow law,” tweeted MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

In the most visible economic consequence, Major League Baseball succumbed to the contrived hysteria and moved its 2021 All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver. Even-though Colorado voting laws are much more restrictive than Georgia’s, or that many black Georgians were victimized by the loss of $100 million in tourism revenue redirected from 50%-black Atlanta to 9%-black Denver.

Now according to Tuesday night’s results, early voting in the state of Georgia shattered records, including among minorities. Overall turnout broke primary records, too, with more than 1.9 million Georgians having cast their ballots, compared to 1.16 million in 2018. 

 The Republicans’ counterargument is that the legislation clearly has not prevented record numbers from casting ballots.

“The incredible turnout we have seen demonstrates once and for all that Georgia’s Election Integrity Act struck a good balance between the guardrails of access and security,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp agreed, saying Democrats’ talk of suppression is meant to get their base riled up to vote, the Times reported.

“They don’t want to know what the truth is,” he told supporters at a Saturday campaign event in Watkinsville. “They don’t care what the truth is. They want to talk about the narrative that drives their base and helps their political polling.”

(FreedomWire.org) – President Donald Trump scored a clean sweep last night after all 22 of the Republican candidates he backed won their primary races.

The 45th president’s endorsement in the hotly contested Ohio Senate primary proved decisive, as JD Vance pulled out a close race.

Trump’s spokesman Taylor Budowich said, “JD Vance put in tremendous work and has immense political talent, which put him in the position to earn the support of President Trump.”

Budowich continued, “but it was the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump that took a candidate who many insiders said was in 4th and at single digits in the polls, and in only two weeks, propelled him into a commanding first-place finish.”

“The power of President Trump’s endorsement is undeniable, his dominance over the Republican powerbrokers in D.C. cannot be overstated, and the promise of this MAGA Movement will not just define the Midterms, but it will win for years to come,” Budowich stated.

From Politico:

In the March Texas primaries, his first true test of 2022, all of Trump’s chosen congressional and statewide candidates won their races with the exception of scandal-plagued state Attorney General Ken Paxton, who is in a runoff later this month.

In Tuesday’s Indiana and Ohio primaries, Trump once again ran the table: All 22 of his endorsed candidates won.

(FreedomWire.org) – This is not good news for the left.

Democrats face another threat to their victory going into this year’s midterms: the frustrated nonwhite voters who have been most impacted by record inflation.

According to a recent poll published by The Wall Street Journal, 35 percent of nonwhite – which includes Hispanic, Black, and Asian American – voters revealed that inflation was putting significant pressure on their finances compared to less than a third of white voters relating the pressure.

These statistics do not bode well for Democrats, who are already on the back foot going into this year’s midterms, especially as it relates to a key demographic who helped them establish majorities and win gubernatorial bids.

But these nonwhite voters are not simply apathetic. Many believe that Republicans are better equipped to tame inflation than their Democratic counterparts; some have even indicated they would be voting for GOP candidates rather than Democrats.

Hispanic voters seem to be the most likely nonwhite voters to cast their ballots in favor of Republicans. According to the poll, 46 percent of Hispanic voters said they would “probably or definitely” be voting for a Republican in the 2022 midterm elections.

In all, 60 percent of those polled said inflation was causing “major or minor financial strain.” Some reportedly blamed President Joe Biden’s actions – in instances where he shut down the Keystone XL pipeline and paused federal oil and gas leases – for causing rampant inflation.

The poll also revealed that all voters reported inflation and rising prices being their most important issues, beating issues like the Russia-Ukraine crisis, COVID-19 pandemic, border security, and immigration.

(FreedomWire.org) – If the joint session of Congress is anything to go by, masks are officially out.

President Biden delivered his first State of the Union to a largely maskless congress, as most members abandoned masks following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changing their guidance on the restriction earlier this week.

Democrats’ maskless faces strongly contrasted the party’s overwhelmingly supportive stance on mask mandates for the past two years. However, in recent months some have deviated from that stance as public opinion soured on the mask mandates.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also withdrew the requirement to wear masks in the House, just ahead of Biden’s congressional address — a rule the Senate had never implemented.

Among a sea of maskless faces, the handful of lawmakers who wore masks stood out.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) was one of those who stood out, as he was one of a few House Democrats wearing a mask. His decision to wear the face-covering was shared by Democrat Senator John Ossof of Georgia.

There were also a few of Biden’s Cabinet secretaries who attended the State of the Union wearing masks. The list included United Nations Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield.

Republicans, who have in many instances been the most vocal opponents to mask mandates, embraced the new rules without a mask in sight.

(FreedomWire.org) – Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley unloaded on President Joe Biden’s administration for a number of unforced errors in dealing with the ongoing Russian invasion on Ukraine.

Haley spoke Sunday with “Meet the Press” moderator and NBC political editor Chuck Todd, and she argued — among other things — that continuing to buy oil from Russia was essentially making a deal with the devil.

Todd began by asking Haley whether or not she believed the war between Russia and Ukraine would end as long as Russian President Vladimir Putin remained in control of his nation.

“[Putin] is going to drag this out as long as he can. He’s committed. He is an evil tyrant that we see is not going to stop until he can control the Soviet Empire,” Haley replied. “What we have learned in the lesson in all of this is, when tyrants speak, we should listen. He said he would take Ukraine, he is. China said they would take Hong Kong, they did. He said he would take Poland and the Baltics, we should listen to that. Iran said they would destroy Israel. Every time a tyrant speaks, we need to remember they told us, we need to listen.”

Todd pressed Haley further, asking whether she would be in favor of the United States assisting in implementing a no-fly zone over Ukraine — something that Ukrainian officials have repeatedly called for, but that many NATO allies warn would quickly escalate to war with Russia.

“No, I’m not in favor of a no fly zone right now. What I am in favor of is the Biden Administration stepping up and doing the things that will matter,” Haley continued, arguing that the sanctions had to hit the energy sector if they were going to do any real damage to Putin.

“We know the one thing that punches Putin in the gut is to hit his energy sector. There is no reason we should be taking money from an enemy. We should go ahead and sanction all those energy companies right now,” she said.

“We should be making sure we’re moving forward on giving them the missiles they need. They have said they don’t have what they need. They need javelins, they need stingers, they need anti-tank tools to do this. We’re late to the game, we’re still late to the game. It’s not too late now, but we’ve got to get on the ball,” Haley added.

“One could argue there’s been 20 years of appeasing Putin, that there was this belief he could be part of the world order,” Todd continued, asking, “Was that a mistake from the get-go?”

“I’ve always said that you cannot trust Russia, you cannot trust Putin. You can’t trust Xi, you can’t trust China. It’s common sense. I dealt with them at the United Nations. You never negotiate, you never deal with your enemies. You can’t trust them,” Haley pushed back, saying that she had been “mortified” to see Biden ask China for help in dealing with Russia. “You never ask an enemy for help with another enemy. I never told China anything that I didn’t want Russia to know, because you know how they coordinate. It’s the same reason why it’s unthinkable that Biden would be coordinating or even thinking of getting back into the Iran deal with the Russians and Chinese at the table. Why are we negotiating and trusting enemies? You don’t do that. That’s the first start to being strong in America is understanding who your enemies are and make sure you let them know that you understand them.”

Todd pressed again, mentioning former President Donald Trump’s impeachment and the claim that he had attempted to withhold aid from Ukraine, adding, “The Trump Administration, Trump personally tried to roll back sanctions on Russia in 2017.”

He asked Haley whether that might have sent the message to Putin that the West was divided and he would be essentially permitted to do what he liked.

“You kept saying he tried. All I know is what he did,” Haley shot back. “I was personally there in the United Nations when he got out of the Iran deal, when he expelled diplomats, when he refused Nord Stream 2 pipeline. He did stronger things against Russia than Republican or Democratic presidents before him … Putin knew not to mess with the United States. Putin needs to know that again. We need to start standing up. Why are we even ho-humming around the fact that we’re still taking Russian oil? Why are we doing that? Why would we take money from evil dictators? You never sleep with the devil because then the devil owns you. The Europeans are finding that out right now. We need to be smarter than that.”

(FreedomWire.org) – During Biden’s State of the Union address there were plenty of blunders that went viral. For instance, the part of Biden’s speech where he called Ukrainian people “Iranian” made several headlines and when Biden said the word “burn-pits” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi awkwardly stood up and rubbed her fist together like a cartoon villain of some sort.

However, what the media didn’t pick up is Biden’s conclusion of his speech was almost verbatim to Trump’s conclusion of his state of the Union address.

In 2018 Trump was quoted saying  “The state of our Union is strong because our people are strong.” but it appears Biden’s speechwriter copied Trump’s speech because Biden was quoted saying “The state of the Union is strong because you the American people are strong.”

Watch the moment it happened right here:

This wasn’t the first time Biden plagiarized according to the American Presidency Project he has done it a handful of times.

Joe Biden has plagiarized from speeches, essays, and policy positions throughout his entire life
As a student at Syracuse Law School in 1965, Biden plagiarized 5-pages from a law review journal “without quotation or attribution” During his failed 1988 presidential campaign, Biden plagiarized from speeches by British politician Neil Kinnock, Robert Kennedy, and President John F. Kennedy
Now, Joe Biden and his 2020 Presidential campaign are at it again – lifting ideas, slogans, and writings to pass off as their own

Last year, Biden’s campaign used “word-for-word” language from other groups as part of his climate and education policy papers The newly released recommendations from the “Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force” take whole sections straight from Bernie Sanders’ campaign platform.

One of the most notable slogans Biden has stolen was Bill Clinton’s build-back better slogan.

Clinton used the slogan after a large earthquake struck Haiti; in response to the tragedy, he declared that Haiti will be “built back better” with the assistance of the United States and the United Nations. Haiti, on the other hand, was never rebuilt to its former glory.

Instead, the situation in the country is worse now than it was in 2010. The United States is currently experiencing an influx of thousands of Haitians who have fled their country after last year’s earthquake struck the country just weeks after their president was assassinated.

The main source of contention surrounding Bill Clinton’s “build back better” campaign for Haiti was the allegation that billions of dollars in aid had been raised by the Clinton Foundation for the people of Haiti, but that the money had never reached the people who were in desperate need of assistance. Under Bill Clinton’s watch, a United Nations peacekeeper was also responsible for a Cholera outbreak that claimed the lives of almost 10,000 Haitians.

Biden’s campaign slogan for 2020 was “Build Back Better” but just as Clinton’s Haiti operation, Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda is a disaster and not even the least bit helpful for the American people. Honestly, Biden is more than likely not even plagiarizing but his advisors and his puppet masters are the ones doing it because at this point it’s unknown if Biden can even give a speech without a teleprompter or notes.
