Biden consolidates power as Republicans are divided
By Cliff Kincaid
May 7, 2024

Six months before Election Day, the polls are tightening, as Biden is buying votes with promises of free abortions, health care for immigrants, debt relief for college students, and marijuana (“Soma”) for the masses. Trump is stuck in court and may be headed to jail if he continues to violate a “gag order” in the case.

Meanwhile, Republican control of the House of Representatives hangs by a thread, as MAGA favorite Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene threatens to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson from power and former Trump adviser Stephen K. Bannon calls him a “twerp” and a “worm.”

As the Biden regime is consolidating its power and working to imprison the leader of the opposition, a “close” presidential election is developing, with a repeat of 2020 shaping up as mail-in ballots prepared in advance will be used to swing the results in Biden’s favor.

The Republican National Committee’s chief counsel, Charlie Spies, who was supposed to prepare for another fraudulent election, has just resigned under pressure.

Republicans are divided, confused, and chaotic.

Too many “conservatives” are acting like this is an ordinary campaign and election. Those who talk about “the rise of MAGA” in 2024 are fooling themselves, just like their predictions of a “Red Wave” in the 2022 congressional elections failed to materialize.

The organizations which peddled the Red Wave propaganda two years ago included the New York Post, Fox News, Fox Business, Mike Lindell’s Frank Speech channel, the Clay & Buck radio show, PJ Media, Townhall, the Daily Caller, and the Real America’s Voice network.

They were all wrong.

More bad news comes from Maryland, a deep blue state, where “Republican” Senate candidate Larry Hogan, a popular ex-governor, is backed by Senate Republican leader Senator Mitch McConnell. Hogan is a Liz Cheney-type RINO and a “never Trumper.”

My new report on the important Senate race in Maryland is now available at the America’s Survival, Inc. website.

Showing his disdain for the conservatives who now dominate the Maryland Republican Party, Hogan didn’t participate in a Frederick County (Maryland) Conservative Club debate featuring Senate candidates. But he seems to be campaigning this time around as a conservative on issues like the open border and rampant crime. He staged a photo op at the border with a briefing from “Democratic border sheriffs.”

When President Trump called for a state-by-state review of the certification of the results of the 2020 presidential election, in view of reports of irregularities and fraudulent mail-in ballots, Hogan rejected his calls for election integrity and said that such an assessment of the real results was a “scheme” against democracy.

During COVID, as governor, Hogan closed churches and left pot shops open. Indeed, “medical cannabis growers, processors, and dispensaries” were considered public health establishments under Hogan’s executive orders. Maryland became home to a booming “medical marijuana” industry that developed under Hogan.

So-called “recreational” marijuana has since been legalized in the state.

Republican Dan Cox, then a state delegate and now running for Maryland’s 6th Congressional seat, filed impeachment charges against Hogan himself over the governor’s handling of COVID and related matters.

On the other side, Democratic Party Senate candidate and current Representative David Trone is reportedly worth more than $2 billion and has already used some of that wealth to buy his House seat. So far, he has pumped $54.12 million from his own pocket into the campaign for the Senate. This has earned him the moniker “the 54 million dollar man.”

Trone’s firm, Total Wine & More, offers same-day alcohol delivery for “over 8000 wines, 3000 spirits and 2500 beers with the best prices, selection, and service.”

It seems that addiction pays and makes people rich. The Democratic Party seems to have no problem with this approach. In fact, the marijuana business is clearly another source of campaign donations for Democrats.

In his race for the Maryland Senate nomination, to be decided in the May 14 primary, Trone is using his alcohol-fueled campaign to promote the theme that the criminal justice system is “systemically racist.” But he is a white man running against a black woman, Angela Alsobrooks, the Prince George’s County (Maryland) executive who would be Maryland’s first black woman in the Senate.

In the name of racial justice, one might think Trone would step aside to give a black woman a chance.

The additional problem is that he is running a racist campaign. He accused her of being unqualified since she would need “training wheels” if she won, a comment that led over 650 Black women, including former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile, to condemn Trone for “not only disparaging and dismissive” remarks about Alsobrooks, but “tones of misogyny and racism.”

Before that, he used the racist slur “jigaboo” at a hearing in front of a black Biden administration official. The congressman said he meant to use the term “bugaboo.”

Whatever happens to Trone in the May 14 primary election, the candidate is a case study of how money and power flow from booze and dope in America.

Using his fortune in other ways, the David and June Trone Family Foundation has no “mission statement,” but its 2021 tax return showed $2 million to the ACLU. He previously donated $15 million to the ACLU so it could establish the “Trone Center for Criminal Justice Reform.”

“The Trone gift is the second largest donation in the organization’s history dedicated to criminal justice work, after the 2014 gift of $50 million made by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations,” noted the ACLU. George Soros, chairman of the Open Society Institute, added his thanks, saying, “I would like to congratulate and thank David Trone for his important response to the challenge I issued to the ACLU to mount the largest effort in history to end over-incarceration.”

So Trone appears to be marching to the beat of George Soros. While Soros promotes acceptance of dope, Trone specializes in getting people high and drunk.

Whatever happens with Trone and Alsobrooks, one can be certain that Maryland will be an example of what is happening nationally – Democrats and RINOs will be teaming up with the media to defeat and destroy Trump Republicans.
