Gavin Newsom may have prevailed in yesterday's recall election in California, but the issues that drove over three million Californians to vote for Newsom's recall have not gone away. Support for the recall outperformed support given to President Trump in the 2020 election, indicating that it probably isn't just Trump voters who are disenchanted with Gov. Gavin Newsom. Despite Elder's loss, his candidacy appears to have charted a new course for the California Republican Party. The Times of San Diego calls elder "a new kind of Republican," and "the candidate that the California Republican … [Read more...]
Looking for a Better America
After decades of urbanization, Americans are rebelling against the “bigger is better” mentality of city-living. Seeking a smaller, more affordable, sustainable, and secure lifestyle, some are venturing out from the mega-cities in search of a different life.
A number of techniques have become popular in an effort to save, especially scaling down the size of one’s home. Living small and saving big is even better when it’s coupled with living in a state that treats you more like a human than an ATM it can withdraw money from.
Look for a better America today. Start by reading what I have written to help you below:
Vaccine mandates are only the beginning of an American reality in which states' rights are trampled by federal mandates to control you. Tucker Carlson explains the changing narrative of vaccine mandates, and the possible endgame of electronic vaccine passports that will act as an extension of the virtual Panopticon already monitoring Americans. Watch: Watch the latest video at foxnews.com Your Survival Guy's Take on What's Next? Once the precedent is set that a vaccine passport is required of you to exercise your rights, what else could be conditioned on your compliance? How about … [Read more...]
Perspective can change the way you view anything. Watching super high-definition footage of a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park will give the viewer a starkly different feeling than meeting one face-to-face. It's all about perspective. To add some perspective to the danger children face from COVID-19, understand that in 2021 so far, more children have been shot in the city of Chicago than have died from the virus. Audrey Conklin reports for Fox News: Over the course of 2021, more minors have been shot in Chicago than have died of COVID-19 in all of the United States, according to … [Read more...]
You read back in July about the dangerously low number of police Seattle has on its roster right now. After the city's politicians showed officers nothing but contempt through the summer of 2020, many cops decided to retire or work elsewhere. Now, Seattle is once again threatening its citizens' safety by threatening to fire police who do not get the COVID vaccine. The Seattle Police Department could lose another 20% of its officers, after already losing around 22% since the start of 2020. The Daily Mail reports: More than 200 Seattle police officers could lose their jobs over the … [Read more...]
As you and I discussed recently, big blue cities are exporting jobs to places like Florida, where their money is treated with respect. Today, let’s talk about Main Street America that’s been forgotten by big businesses that have moved America’s manufacturing base to China. How can this be a good long-term trend? I remember like it was yesterday, studying globalization—“the next big thing.” Now, look at where we are. But attitudes are changing. One thing I noticed from a trip to our log cabin in New Hampshire this summer was, the area in and around the beautiful White Mountains were packed … [Read more...]
The big blue blob cities, despite maximum gun control, maximum taxes, and maximum regulation, are in a state of chaos. It turns out that when politicians signal to criminals that their behavior will be tolerated, criminals listen. That's what happened as politicians around the country spent 2020 bashing police, and defunding their cities' guardians. Now violence is soaring, and instead of taking responsibility for what they've done to encourage criminal behavior, politicians are blaming guns for their humiliation. Paul Sacca reports on the 58 people shot in Chicago over Labor Day weekend. He … [Read more...]
Last year, Americans in blue states and cities across the country fled the violence and disease in their cities, buying homes in places like Florida, Texas, New Hampshire, and Wyoming. The truth is, many of them had been looking for the chance to get out for years, but until remote work gave them the opportunity, they were stuck paying high taxes and suffering the high costs of living. With COVID and looting subsiding it was possible the trend would reverse, but in fact in 2021 in California, it's accelerating. A new study from Stanford reports that more businesses have already left … [Read more...]
New York City businesses are suing Mayor Bill De Blasio over his vaccine mandate. Businesses are having enough trouble hiring employees and making rent, they don't have the time or the resources to be checking everyone's papers like the Stasi. The Daily Mail reports: New York City business owners are suing Mayor Bill de Blasio over the city's new 'arbitrary and capricious' vaccine requirements that will force them to check the vaccine status of every single indoor customer. Restaurants and gyms throughout the city argue that the new rules are unfair because they don't apply to other indoor … [Read more...]

The soft-on-crime policies of Big Blue Blob city mayors like Bill De Blasio are allowing crime to explode in America. Just last night in New York City sixteen people were shot. The NY Post reports: At least 16 people were wounded in a series of shootings across the Big Apple in about a two-hour span on Sunday night — including eight struck in one incident on the grounds of a Brooklyn public housing complex, authorities said. The bloodshed began minutes before 11 p.m. Sunday when three men were struck by gunfire on Westgate Street near 140th Avenue in Springfield Gardens, according to … [Read more...]
