Conservative Pollster Warns Steve Bannon: ‘People Are Less Likely To Vote For A Republican’

Mark Mitchell, a pollster who works for the conservative Rasmussen polling organization, warned Thursday that recent surveys show that American voters are “less likely” to vote for a Republican candidate than they were just a year ago.

During an appearance on former Trump administration adviser Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, Mitchell noted that President Joe Biden’s poll numbers had risen considerably over the summer and Democrats have also made up significant ground in the generic congressional ballot. Once down by as much as 10 points, the two parties are almost even.

Mitchell also told Bannon:

“Look at the question. If the midterm elections were held today, would you vote for the Republican candidate or for the Democrat candidate for Congress? And, you know, when somebody loses a lead like that, it’s a referendum on the party. Right?

“So, people are very concerned about all these topics. They look around and they see a lot of problems with the economy and they’re worried about being able to make their rent payment or whatever.”

The pollster added:

“But they are less likely to vote for Republicans — I think that’s a very clear signal — than they were a year ago. Much less likely than they were a year ago.”

Remember that “red wave” the GOP was promising at the beginning of the year? The wave now seems to be turning blue and could be disastrous for Republicans because Americans know they cannot be trusted.

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Husband Files For Divorce – Says The Marriage Is ‘Irretrievably Broken’

Perry Greene, the husband of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) filed for divorce on Wednesday in Floyd County Superior Court, stating the reason for ending the marriage of 27 years was because it was “irretrievably broken,” according to The Hill.

Interestingly, Perry Greene also requested that the court seal all of the divorce proceedings, “because the parties’ significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s miniscule interest in access to said records.”

Further, the filing also notes “sensitive personal and financial information” will likely be revealed in case, “which would negatively impact the parties’ privacy interests.”  

According to Perry Greene, the couple has already separated.

Responding to the dissolution of her marriage, the congresswoman released a statement which reads:

“Marriage is a wonderful thing and I’m a firm believer in it. Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect.

“Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom. I’ll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children.”

The main reason for Perry Greene’s divorce filing may have something to do with reports that the congresswoman has allegedly been unfaithful to him on several occasions, as Bess Levin of Vanity Fair reported in 2021.

Marjorie Taylor Greene allegedly (had) a pair of affairs with guys she met at the gym. One of them, according to the tabloid, was Justin Tway, who became the manager of the Alpharetta, Georgia, CrossFit gym where Greene was on staff and worked out. The other was supposedly Craig Ivey, a “polyamorous tantric-sex guru,” according to the Daily Mail, who has posted at least one Facebook photo of himself stark naked in front of waterfall doing yoga.

Twitter had a field day with the divorce filing.

Conservatives Pitch A Massive Online Hissy Fit After Lizzo Plays A Flute Once Owned By James Madison

You may not know this, but singer Lizzo is an accomplished flutist, and was granted an extreme honor this week when the Library of Congress allowed her to play a 200-year-old crystal flute that was once owned by former president James Madison.

CNN reports that Lizzo admitted she was nervous about playing a flute once owned by a Founding Father and former president.

In footage shared by concertgoers, Lizzo excitedly and delicately handled the flute under the careful watch of Library staff and Capitol Police. She briefly shared the history of the flute with her audience and said she was “the first person to ever play it.”

“B***h, I’m scared,” she said to the audience’s laughter. “It’s crystal. It’s like playing out of a wine glass, b***h, so be patient.”

She played a note on the crystal flute, pausing excitedly after it made a sound, according to a video Lizzo shared on social media. Then, she blew a few more fluttery notes on it, cautiously twerking as she played, as is her signature. After a few seconds, she held the flute high in the air, victorious, and carefully returned it to the staff waiting a few feet away.

“B,***h, I just twerked and played James Madison’s crystal flute from the 1800s,” she said incredulously. “We just made history tonight!”

Here’s the video:

It was a beautiful and historic moment, one which the Library of Congress was glad to help make possible because it made history come alive.

Earlier this week, the Library of Congress invited Lizzo to visit its collection of 1,700 flutes, the largest in the world, per the Library. She carefully played the flute there first before she “serenaded employees and a few researchers” with a “more practical” woodwind, the Library said.

But reaction from conservatives, right-wingers, and MAGA morons was hateful, bigoted, and disgusting, which seems to be the usual for them. They seethed on social media.

GOP Congressman Seems To Suggest Drug Seizures On The US-Mexico Border Are A Bad Thing

Texas Republican Congressman Pat Fallon seems to be opposed to the fact that U.S. law enforcement officials are seizing illegal drugs on the U.S-Mexico border, which has set off a raging debate on social media.

Fallon posted this on Twitter earlier this week:

“Since Joe Biden took office — 1.2 MILLION POUNDS of illegal drugs have been seized at our southern border. If you needed more evidence that this Administration’s border policies are contributing to a surging drug crisis — look no further.”

But the drugs were seized. They didn’t make it to the streets. That’s a good thing, isn’t it?

Of course, this is just part of a larger false narrative being repeated all over Twitter and Facebook by Republicans who want to try and suggest that the Biden administration doesn’t have control of the border, despite evidence that suggests otherwise. For example:

In February, U.S. Customs and Border Protection “encountered 100,441 persons attempting entry along the Southwest border,” according to the monthly statistics it released March 10 — but it also expelled 72,113 people.

Also, President Biden, unlike Donald Trump, actually got Mexico to pay $1.5 billion for border security. Remember how Trump said Mexico would pay for his border wall? They never paid a dime. But now they have:

Mexico … agreed to contribute $1.5 billion to a joint initiative with the U.S. to improve infrastructure along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a person familiar with the commitment.

The agreement came on the same day President Joe Biden hosted his Mexican counterpart, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, for a meeting in the Oval Office.

And now we have Rep. Fallon complaining about drug seizures. Twitter users were quick to call him out and remind him that his attempt at criticism actually makes the Biden administration look incredibly competent and successful.

Lara Trump Gets Slammed For Posting Video Of Her Son In Pouring Rain – Calls It Building ‘Character’

Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump and wife of Eric Trump, executive vice president of his daddy’s company, the Trump Organization, is getting slammed on social media for a video she posted of her 5-year-old son being forced to ride on a small children’s car in pouring rain as she notes that doing so will build “character.”

In the video, the child, Eric L. Trump, who goes by the name Luke, is seen squinting his eyes and trying to see as a torrential rain pours down on him. At one point, he also appears to be crying.

The rain is part of the first wave of storms from Hurricane Ian, which is slamming into the state of Florida, and it appears to have caught Lara by surprise, because she includes a caption on Instagram with the video that reads:

“Thought we had a clear window, turns out we built some character instead. Everyone stay safe!”

In the video, you can also hear Lara Trump remarking:

“Oh my God, Luke. Come on, you can do it, let’s go.”

This is the same son that Eric and Lara praised as being a “hyper-savant” in June, with Lara commenting:

“I feel like our son could almost be like an Elon Musk type. Because he looks at things in a way…The things he observes when he looks at like a video or picture, I’m like, ‘Wow, you’re looking at that in a way I never even thought of.’ That’s Elon Musk.”

Once the video was shared on Twitter, it didn’t take long before Lara was slammed for humiliating her son while the internet watched, which certainly seems to be a form of child abuse.

Cruelty and sadism seem to be hallmarks of the Trump family.
