SCOTUS Made for an Extra Happy Independence Day This Year

Arguably, President Trump’s most important accomplishment was the appointment of three mostly very solid Supreme Court judges, so-say the three big rulings that came down at the very end of June.  While most readers here will have seen at least the headlines, some texture could come in handy to help educate the CNN watchers or New York Times readers with whom you might cross paths!

The ‘Tween Season in Politics

The Dallas County Republican Party has a lot going on right now. The election didn’t end our work, it just caused it to reorient and shift gears. This is the ‘tween season in politics.

We are ending one election cycle while gearing up for the next. For a short period, it is totally normal to be in both cycles at the same time. Neither of the two cycles has a clean edge where one ends and the other begins. Instead, the edges overlap. Where they overlap is the ‘tween season.

This work is typical of every election. Even while we are ending one election, other work is beginning on the next even before the recent election is finalized and certified. As a result, we're 'tweening.

Also, actual governing begins early in the new cycle. This also contributes to the ‘tween season.

We'll Be Live Blogging All Day and Evening on Election Day, Nov. 8th

As a supplement to the DCRP's regular blog on Tuesday, Election Day, (we normally publish the blog on Tuesday and Friday), I will also be running a public live blog on Election Day.

I will be live blogging all day; first from the DCRP "Command Center" at Headquarters and then from the DCRP Watch Party in the evening.

Live blogs, as the name implies, will be created and displayed live and in real time. They will be mostly text but will contain a fair number of pictures and some inline video as time allows. My objective is to inform you of key events and news as it occurs. Also, I will try to capture the excitement of voting operations and the Watch Party as we begin to get information for local, state and national results.

Democrats, Well There’s Your Problem

I’m not in the business of giving political advice to Democrats (as if they wanted it), but in this case, I can’t pass up the opportunity.

On Thursday, Breitbart moved a story titled: “Gavin Newsom Warns Democrats: ‘Red Wave’ Is Coming Tuesday”

In the story, the man with a lot of product in his hair is credited with making the following statement:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is warning fellow Democrats that a “red wave” is coming next Tuesday and that the party is not doing enough to compete with Republicans on “messaging.”

Well, Guv, it isn’t that the Democrats aren’t doing enough to compete with Republicans on messaging, the simple truth is that a LARGE portion of the electorate isn’t buying what the Democrats are selling!

Bidenflation, the Cruelest Tax

Things are bigger in Texas. Unfortunately, that also now includes inflation. The inflation rate in DFW is higher than the national figures. In Dallas-Fort Worth, inflation remained above the U.S. average in September as higher utilities, rent, and food prices drove local inflation up 9.2% from a year ago.

When inflation really hits home is during trips to the grocery store (using gas that is harder to afford.) All of the food items in a shopping cart at your local mega mart are 10% above last year. Leading the pack, according to the Dallas Morning News on October 13th, fruits and vegetables are up 21.9% over last year. Only Daddy War Bucks can afford to tell Little Orphan Annie to eat her vegetables. The cost of "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" is really expensive healthcare advice.

Trouble in Paradise?

A story for the Dallas Morning News, reports internecine fighting between two prominent Dallas County Democrats over yet a third Democrat.

According to the story, there is a fight between Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price and Dallas County Democrat Party Chair Kristy Noble. As reported, JWP wrote a letter calling Kristy Noble “vain” over a get-out-the-vote door-hanger campaign that featured her picture on the back. 

But here, the plot thickens. Tellingly, the letter also took a direct swipe at Ms. Noble for not supporting the ouster of the Dallas County Elections Administrator, Michael Scarpello who is also a Democrat.

Well, Biden’s Speech May Have Unified Us After All

Even the Biden White House doesn’t get things THIS WRONG with the ineptitude we’ve come to expect. This was not an accident. No, this was very deliberate. Despicable, but planned.

Political theater: Democrat Kabuki – a classic mid-term misdirection that attempts to change the conversation.

No Destruction of Any Records from the 2020 Election!

In a meeting with Dallas County Elections Administrator Michael Scarpello, on Thursday, it was conveyed to him how many Republicans were concerned with the pending expiration of data archiving requirements from the November 2020 election department.  He was very reassuring when he responded that due to two pending lawsuits and a currently ongoing Secretary of State audit from the 2020 election, there would be absolutely no destruction of any records from that election.
