NEWS AND NOTICES:
Well, at least the “sewer” or the “kitchen sink” didn’t come.
“Biden’s approval rating is still in the toilet,” notes the headline of Election Central, a political news site that featured revealing numbers from a new Quinnipiac University poll.
“Americans give President Joe Biden a negative job approval rating, as 36% approve of the work he does, while 54% disapprove,” the pollster said in an analysis, noting that registered voters shared the same sentiment.
“Coming out of the midterm elections where Democrats didn’t do as badly as expected, you’d think President Biden would benefit from an increase in his endorsement count. That’s not the case, according to Quinnipiac, as the president’s poll numbers continue to live on in the mid-1930s as the country faces fuel shortages this winter. The verdict on how Biden has handled crisis after crisis has been poor – and his leadership in the White House is non-existent,” wrote Nate Ashworthfounder and editor of the site.
Quinnipiac also asked respondents their opinion on individual issues, such as the handling of the war in Ukraine, climate change, foreign policy and the economy. Biden is underwater on all of them,” he said.
Indeed, the numbers speak for themselves. Mr Biden has a 62% disapproval rating on how he has handled the economy, a 54% disapproval rating when it comes to foreign policy and 49% of respondents disapprove of his response to climate change.
“It’s a tremendous job Mr. Biden is doing there on every level. Once again, these numbers underscore that Democrats withstood a massive red wave on Election Day not because of Mr. Biden’s popularity, but despite his shortcomings as president. Issue after issue it gets bad ratings,” Mr Ashworth said.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and six GOP colleagues traveled to the U.S. southern border this week to thank U.S. Border Patrol agents for their vigilance and to tell the Secretary of Homeland Security Alexander Mayorkas “Enough is enough.”
Mr. McCarthy has a schedule to keep.
“In 42 days, House Republicans are officially ending one-party rule and holding those responsible for the border disaster accountable,” McCarthy said in a written statement shared with Inside the Beltway.
“In 42 days, House Republicans, led by high-ranking members James Comer and Jim Jordan, will investigate every order, every action and every failure to determine whether to open an impeachment inquiry against the secretary. Mayorkas. In 42 days, the Biden administration will once again be accountable to the American people. This is the House Republican commitment to America,” McCarthy said.
He made his statement on Tuesday; 42 days from that date is January 3 – when the United States House meets at noon.
Fox News just flipped the switch on its “American Christmas tree” dedicated to New York police and firefighters – specifically NYPD Precinct 32, which has lost detectives Wilbert Mora and Jason Rivera this year, and EMS Station 49, which lost the captain. Alison Russo This year.
And about this tree, which stands just outside the network’s national headquarters in Manhattan.
It is 50 feet tall and adorned with 12,000 ornaments and 340,000 lights. The tree has 500 branches, a star over six feet tall, and over four miles of coiled rope throughout. Made in America, the tree features a patriotic theme of red, white and blue decorations.
A keen observer looks askance at the serious impact of “woke” culture on the nation’s schools.
“In traditional cultures, the elders feel a duty to initiate young people into an education in virtue. In modern, non-traditional cultures, adults feel no such duty. They expose children to vice – look at all the moral rot in public schools across the country where teachers, among other practices, hand out condoms to students and encourage them to self-harm in the name of “gender identity” – and they regularly replace virtuous education with virtue propaganda,” wrote Georges Neumayreditor of The American Spectator, in a substantial new report.
“The graduates of this fictional education know nothing of the Ten Commandments—public school principals live in fear of ACLU lawsuits against the slightest educational nod to theism—but these students know a lot about the Ten Commandments. environmentalism, feminism, gender politics, racial politics and the sexual revolution,” Neumayr advised.
“The worst sins, according to this distorted education, do not involve violating the teachings of Christianity, but contradicting the supposedly proper attitudes that the ruling class expects of citizens. No public school principal would dare condemn a high school student for s having an abortion or having premarital sex, but many principals would not hesitate to condemn students for having donald trump-related dress or participation in high-profile conservative marches and protests,” he said.
“Out of this godless culture of virtue signaling no virtue, which pervades high schools and colleges, has sprung an astonishing generation of brats and miscreants, long on progressive vanities but short of basic decency,” Mr. Neumayr wrote.
“A generation of young people trained in vice, not virtue, and PC attitudes, not rudimentary moral duty, gave birth to Biden’s America, a country increasingly nihilistic than its founding fathers, if they were alive today, would regret having founded”, he later concluded.
