Ranking The State Capitols

That’s Capitols, not Capitals. Here, the Geography King gives us his assessments of all 50 states’ Capitol buildings, and ranks them based on his architectural and design preferences. Not so shocking, but the biggest states — including New York, California and Texas — all stand out and rank quite high. They have large populations and they have spent hefty sums building lavish seats of government. But none of them come out on top.

You’ll have to watch to see which state wins, but we’ll give you a clue. Here, in alphabetical order, are the three highest-ranked state Capitols: Connecticut, Iowa and Pennsylvania. Also placing among the finalists: West Virginia, whose state Capitol has the most awesome domes!

Biden Has Gone Off The Path

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, says Joe Biden’s administration is veering down a dangerous path by pushing a far Leftist agenda that will have no bipartisan support whatsoever. Manchin’s disenchantment is significant. With the U.S. Senate essentially tied 50 to 50, all it will take is one or two Democrats to side with Republicans to bring a screeching halt to Biden’s initiatives. Here, Manchin outlines a few of the elements of Biden’s destructive plans that need to be moderated or abandoned. More from the next News Network.

Biden’s Assault On The Republic

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has duly warned President Biden that if he signs unconstitutional laws passed by Congress, it is our duty to challenge them in court. He was quickly joined by attorneys general from Arkansas, Indiana, Mississippi, Montana and Texas in signing a six-page letter to the President.

The letter charges Biden of cutting Constitutional corners by signing more than 40 executive orders to date, adding that overreaching and defying Congress will not be rewarded or succeed and only amounts to tyranny against we the people. “He doesn’t care,” says Martin Brodel of Biden. “They control the courts, so he can care less.” Brodel also reports on freshman Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s challenges of Biden’s decision to rejoin the Paris Accord, his mask mandate and funding of the World Health Organization, plans to vaccinate terrorists at Guantanamo Bay and the Black Lives Matter nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Virginians: Go West!

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, announced that legislation has been passed to send an open invitation to any Virginia county that wants to join West Virginia amid gun control push back in Richmond.

Virginia Democrats have passed red flag gun laws and also voted to allow non-doctors to perform abortions. This is clearly a party whose members have lost their minds. They are not only wrong politically. They are amoral degenerates who ought to be despised and horsewhipped! Vincent James of The Red Elephants discusses these latest Democratic aberrations as well as the West Virginia offer calling on Virginians to secede.

The Vexit Revolution Begins

Remember how Virginia helped fuel the American Revolution? Now it’s West Virginia’s turn.

West — and it’s the Best — Virginia has extended an invitation allowing counties or cities in Virginia to join West Virginia if they reject the draconian gun control being pushed by Virginia’s sleazy Gov. Ralph Northam and the Democrats who now control the Virginia Legislature.

More than 100 Virginia counties, cities and towns have declared themselves as 2A sanctuaries, meaning they support the 2nd amendment and their gun rights. It will be interesting to see if any of those jurisdictions secede from Virginia to become part of Best Virginia! More from Vincent James of The Red Elephants.

Here, Guns & Gadgets discusses the U.S. Brexit, which we’re calling a “Vexit.” How can these Virginia dissidents resist when West Virginia is Wild and Wonderful!

Kavanaugh Wins Appointment

Brett Kavanaugh has won appointment as a Justice to the US Supreme Court on a 50 to 48 vote this afternoon in the US Senate. Kavanaugh gathered the votes of all Republicans, except for Steve Daines of Montana, who was not present, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who simply voted present. Meanwhile, all Democrats cast no votes except for Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who sided with the Republicans in approving the appointment.

Some protesters tried to disrupt the vote and had to be removed from the chambers. Other demonstrators outside the Senate were arrested.

Kavanaugh Has The Votes!

It’s looking more likely Brett Kavanaugh will be appointed the next Justice for the U.S. Supreme Court. Both Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Joe Manchin, D-W. Virginia, announced Friday that they plan to vote in favor of Kavanaugh’s appointment. Previously, they had been undecided. Likely, Kavanaugh will draw 50 or 51 votes —  a slim majority — but still a majority, and enough to end the impasse over his nomination. Anthony Brian Logan has more.

Styxhexenhammer666 wonders about the losing Democrats. They aren’t pivoting on Kavanaugh, they are whirling around like salty tornadoes. Now, they distrust the FBI they once so loved and are declaring an investigation they themselves wanted “insufficient.”

Lionel Nation says the Congress earned the disrespect and distrust of the public. Using just a little bit of alliteration, he says, “The Kavanaugh cacophony and coprolalic caterwauling cemented the collective contempt of citizens.”

Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia will vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Five from Fox News react, with former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile sitting in for Juan Hamilton.

Mark Dice captures some of the last-minute lunacy of the Leftists, ranging from Chuck Schumer’s niece Amy to the Muslim provocateur, Linda Sarsour. It is good to see Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., find his mettle and start to challenge these losers and whiners.

And, in case you missed it, Mark Dice has the full speech by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, announcing her decision to support Brett Kavanaugh and painting a vivid portrait of the damage his opponents mean to wreck upon the American governing system. We have been opposed to Democrats for some time, but we have never before had an opinion so negative toward these political opponents. They not only have overplayed their hand, they have outlasted their welcome. Time to vanish them all until they clean up their act!

The Winner: Justice Kavanaugh!

H.A. Goodman says Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed as the next Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Late into the night, more Senators announced they would be voting to confirm Kavanaugh. He was said to have the support of Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Bob Corker, R-Tenn.; Susan Collins, R-Maine; and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska. With Republicans lining up solidly behind him, Democrats began to drift over as well, starting with Joe Manchin, D-W.V. As many as six or seven other Democrats could vote to confirm Kavanaugh, but even if it’s only  two or three, he will be named to serve on the Supreme Court.

Dick Morris calls Brett Kavanaugh’s appearance Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee one of the greatest moments in political history in recent years. Not only did Kavanaugh provide a convincing statement defending himself from the smears and slurs that have been leveled against him by the Leftist Democrats, but he likely sealed his victory as the next Supreme Court justice. Morris expects nearly all Republicans to vote for Kavanaugh’s nomination, plus 4 or 5 Democrats facing tough races this fall and wanting to be perceived as moderates.

Liz Wheeler from One America News says the Kavanaugh hearings show how Democrats have put a target on the backs of all men. They are perverting justice. No longer are you innocent until proven guilty. Now, women can levy flimsy, contrived charges — even ones supposedly 30 or 40 years old — and use those to smear you. It’s not at all the American way, but it is part of the Democrats’ warped attack to destroy our country, our way of life, our families, our religions, our culture

When they lose in the battle of ideas, they resort to character assassination, every single time. These people are a national disgrace. More from SGTReport.

GOP Takes the Edge

A new “shock poll” bears out what we’ve been saying for months: The Democrats are going to lose their shirts in the 2018 Mid-Term elections. Dr. Steve Turley says the new poll shows the supposed Blue Wave has completely vanished. Instead, the Republicans now have a six-point edge going into the election. In five states, the Democrats are in serious trouble and could lose Senate seats — West Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota and Montana.  Also, there has been a shift toward the right across the Midwest in Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Ohio, so it’s highly unlikely the Democrats will seize many House seats, or state Legislatures.

Again, we’re not surprised. The Democrats have not done any hard work since their defeat in the 2016 election. They have not come up with bright, new ideas or tried to shift their policies to conform with the public. Instead, they are turning more hardcore Leftist and pushing baloney lies, like the whole trumped-up set of charges surrounding President Trump supposedly collaborating with the Russians. Time for the Democrats to wise up: Either stop lying or get lost. We don’t want you and we don’t need you, either.

Meanwhile, in the primaries, Democrats keep pushing more to the Left. Dick Morris calls it “Dem suicide watch” as he notes the number of hardcore leftists they are advancing to the November Mid-Term — Leftists who don’t have a chance in hell to win!
