Today's show opens with the Hershel Walker loss in the Georgia runoff and my thoughts around it. Whether we like it or not, Raphael Warnock spent over $126M in the race as compared to around $38M for Walker. Warnock is a fantastic performer and had stellar campaign ads. (The GOP should take lots of notes over Warnock's advertising and learn from it!) The balance of the Senate is now a majority for the Democrats and that is going to be bothersome, especially if they move to eliminate the filibuster.
However, looking ahead to the 2024 election cycle, there are at least 8 Democrat senators who will be vulnerable, including the two prior champions of the filibuster: Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-NV). In some ways, I am a little less worried knowing if they want to win in 2024, they will likely have to continue acting more centrist and even borderline conservative. There are no guarantees, but it's something to give us a little solace until they prove otherwise.
The leadership of the GOP needs an overhaul. From Tom Emmer, to Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnel and, most importantly, Ronna McDaniel, none of them should be in charge of GOP campaigns. Ronna is literally 0-5 since becoming the GOP Chairwoman in 2017. We have to stop rewarding failure. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) have shown how to win. They can provide the blueprint on what the GOP should be planning for 2024. Even Lee Zeldin who ran for governor in New York, helped to flip House Seats with his campaign. Those are the models we should be exporting to the rest of the party.
Next we circle back to The Twitter Files. Turns out there was a Twitter firing on Tuesday that relates to why some of the files seemed a little "whitewashed" and lacked any mention of FBI involvement. We know, thanks to Miranda Devine of the NY Post that Yoel Roth testified about weekly meeting with the FBI and had been told to look for the Hunter Biden laptop story to drop in October. Turns out, Twitter's chief legal counsel is Jim Baker, a former FBI lawyer who had to resign in 2018 after he helped craft and push both the Steele Dossier narrative as well as the Alfa Bank server story. Who better to protect the regime and the Deep State than to be in tight with a massive social media Big Tech outlet? And, don't think others like him aren't embedded in the other social media outlets.
Finally, I made the prediction yesterday that the Legacy/mainstream media would try to takeover the Hunter Biden laptop story so they can control a new narrative. I said they will try to make it all about naked selfies, as if that's the only thing on the laptop. Well, lo and behold, not 24 hours later, Tim Miller, an MSNBC analyst and voice on several Leftist podcasts comes right out and says the new GOP House is only interested in letting people post pictures of Hunter Biden's junk. Folks, Seems I could see their playbook from a mile away.
