    California Governor Itching For A Fight With Florida Governor

    California Governor Itching For A Fight With Florida Governor

    Hector and Mike examine whether California Governor Gavin Newsom will challenge Kamala Harris if Biden decides not to run and the continued verbal fighting with Florida Governor DeSantis.

    Governor Newsom shouldn’t defer to anyone. He is the Governor of one of the largest states, progressive, and able to raise a ton of money - he shouldn’t blink to anyone within the Democrat Party, especially the Veep.

    Did Trump Doom the Mail Ballot Fight for Republicans?

    Did Trump Doom the Mail Ballot Fight for Republicans?

    Republicans used to be the masters of mail ballots, but then came Donald Trump.

    Across the nation, as voting by mail (absentee) expanded, President Trump talked about mail fraud and voting machine manipulation and insisted that Republicans cast their ballots in person, not via absentee.

    On November 8, Election Day, Californians experienced severe rain throughout the state. How many voters fell ill that day, had to take their kids to practice, experienced long lines, and just went home? As all of us know, life happens.

    For Republicans to be successful, they need to stop with the conspiracy theories and engage in all three types of voting – mail, early, and in-person. Play by the rules of the game and use all your weapons.

    TikTok: Voting Conspiracies Continue to Doom Republican Votes

    Republicans used to be the masters of mail ballots, then came Donald Trump with talk about mail fraud and voting machine manipulation. The problem with waiting is that life Happens. Play by the rules while you try to change the rules.

    No Red Wave, Fetterman Wins, Eating Crow

    No Red Wave, Fetterman Wins, Eating Crow

    Before the election, Hector and Mike wondered if Fetterman in PA would be the unforced error that costs the Democrats the Senate. But when the votes were counted, Fetterman was a Senator-elect, and the Red Wave mania turned out to be a Red-Wave illusion. Will GOP learn from its many mistakes or resort to the circular firing squad?

    The political pilgrimage to Georgia begins with every political operative in the country, but the bottom line: it won’t make a difference. Democrats won everything they needed on November 8. We now know Nancy Pelosi will give up her gavel as Republicans take control of the House. With such a small margin, will the GOP equip all its members with heart monitors?

    Abortion, civility, protecting democracy, and mini-Trumps seemed to be the issues that overcame the economy, inflation, and crime. The message was clear – time to look ahead and stop looking behind.

    Does The Georgia Turnout Kill the Voter Suppression Narrative?

    Does The Georgia Turnout Kill the Voter Suppression Narrative?

    Georgia was ground zero in 2021 when the MLB All-Star game was moved from Atlanta to Colorado because of election integrity laws passed by the Georgia Legislature. Even the President and Vice President got involved calling it “Jim Crow 2.0” and saying it would “suppress the vote.” On Tuesday, Georgia voters will decide with their feet and their vote by going to the polls and voting. Right now, Georgia already has had more people voting in 2022 (an off-year election) than in the 2020 Presidential election. Will Biden, Harris, and all the other election integrity deniers eat crow when the vote totals are counted?

    Want to Lower Gas Prices? Produce More At Home, Import Less from Our Enemies

    Want to Lower Gas Prices? Produce More At Home, Import Less from Our Enemies

    Rather than begging foreign nations to increase oil production and lower their price, President Biden should just call up Gavin Newsom and have him sign the 1,200 oil permits that are collecting dust on his desk. There is no need to negotiate with countries who hate us and have purposely decreased oil production to side with Russia which is the Vice Chair of OPEC. We should become energy independent.

    Is Fetterman the Unforced Error for Democrats?

    Is Fetterman the Unforced Error for Democrats?

    US Senate candidate John Fetterman could have stepped down after his stroke and let the Democrats select another candidate. His argument would have made common sense - life-changing event, need to take care of his health and be there for his family, politics can wait. But instead, he let his ego overtake his common sense. Will it cost the Democrats a seat they thought they would win, and will it result in GOP control of the Senate? Hector and Mike talk about the Fetterman Effect on control of Congress.
