Trump’s COVID-19 Orders: Now Come the Lawsuits

Now come the lawsuits. – I’m not a big fan of an unbridled president making huge decisions on the budget and other matters unilaterally, but this all began in earnest with Barack Obama and the courts have refused to rein it in. Most recently, compromised Chief Justice John Roberts once again twisted himself into a logical pretzel to side with the communists on the Supreme Court to uphold Obama’s clearly unconstitutional DACA order.

So, what happened on Saturday was fair game.

What happened was that President Donald Trump, after watching Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer tank the latest effort to pass a COVID-19 relief bill in congress, simply issued a series of executive orders implementing the basics of the Senate version of the bill himself. In four separate orders, the President extended foreclosure protections, extended an unemployment benefit weekly bonus of $400 – down from the previous $600 per week – suspended payments and interest charges on student loan debt through the end of 2020 and suspended collections of the payroll tax for the final four months of the year for those earning $100,000 or less per year.

As I told host Greg Budell during my weekly Saturday appearance on his morning show on News Talk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL yesterday, the immediate Democrat response – after all the wailing and gnashing of teeth we will see all day long today – will be to file a lawsuit before a friendly Obama judge first thing Monday morning seeking an injunction that would prevent the President from being able to enforce these orders. Note, of course, that each and every one of these is designed to help ordinary Americans make their way through our nation’s insane response to the China Virus. And then note that Democrats once again will prove that they do not give a damn about ordinary Americans.

Note also that the suspension of the payroll tax would target lower-and-middle income Americans. You know – that vast “middle class” where most of the voters are that the communist Democrat Party is always giving lip service to wanting to help but never quite managing to follow through on those promises. Funny how that works, huh?

Lunatic Karen reporter Paula Reid already gave up her pre-knowledge of the communist Democrat strategy during her absurd exchange with the President at last night’s press conference. Listen closely:

Hear her statement that she already knows the Democrats plan to challenge the orders in court? Of course they will, albeit through some third party Soros front group like Lawfare.

And here’s the beauty part: In forcing the communist Democrats to file their lawsuits challenging this assistance for ordinary Americans impacted by the national COVID-19 insanity, the President once again baits them into revealing who they really are: Elites who do not care about you.

The other immediate reaction the Democrats had was this:

Thus, the head communist leads the communist Democrat Party’s rollout of its quadrennial tactic of scaring the old folks about social security. The President, of course, made no such statement about “defunding” social security, although he did promise to take a look at eliminating the payroll tax permanently next year.

Sanders will now claim that, because the payroll tax theoretically funds social security, the two things are one and the same. But that’s an outrageous lie, since congress long ago decided to simply roll payroll taxes into the general fund in order to try to mask the annual budget deficit. The payroll tax is just an income tax by another name.

No one – especially not President Trump – is talking about abolishing social security, except for craven communist Democrat politicians who feel the need to lie about literally everything.

And so, here America sits as a country, its constitutional separation of powers completely in tatters; a congress that has gone abjectly non-functional; a court system corrupted by hundreds of Alinskyite Obama appointees; and a Chief Justice who has obviously been personally compromised.

Amid all of this chaos and squalor, the one and only elected official in our federal government who tries every day to look out for the interests of ordinary Americans is the President, Donald J. Trump.

So, now you know why everybody else in Washington, DC hates his guts.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Portland Riots Get Worse and Fauci Reveals the Truth About a Vaccine

Those loud noises you hear are the sounds of climate alarmist heads exploding. – In his statement rolling out his executive orders on Saturday, President Donald Trump (I till never tire of typing those three glorious words) had the following to say about the “Green New Deal” and its juvenile sponsor, AOC:

“They want to raise everybody’s taxes, everybody, and they want to do the Green New Deal, which will decimate our country and decimate,” Trump said during a press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday.

“It’s ridiculous, it’s childish. I actually say the Green New Deal is childish. It’s for children, it’s not for adults,” he said, without referring by name to the policy’s key architect, New York Democrat Ocasio-Cortez.

[End]

Fact Check: He’s right.

The “Green New Deal” is in fact a childish and un-serious document, a series of socialist/communist policy proposals from a segment of our society that lives in a fanstasy world and wants to force the rest of us to either live there with them, or – preferably to them – die. Make no mistake about it, these people hate you and would much rather you were dead.

Thanks to President Trump for reminding everyone of that reality.

Speaking of reminders… – here is what societal menace Anthony Fauci had to say about the stupidity of wearing masks back in March:

“Right now, people should not be wearing m…there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet. But it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And often, there are unintended consequences: People keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face.”

By the way, that advice given back in March was completely consistent with the little menace’s position on mask-wearing that he has held for many years. Yet, today, he has suddenly morphed into not only advocating the wearing of masks, but also the wearing of goggles to protect the eyes.

Ask yourself this: What changed? The science didn’t change. The data didn’t change. Just the politics and the priorities of his masters in the Democrat Party. That’s all that changed.

The man is a menace to our entire society.

Oh, hey, speaking of the little menace to society… – After spending the past four months breathlessly touting a miracle vaccine as the only answer to COVID-19, Fauci started walking back the hype:

Oh. You don’t saaaayyyyyy…

From a piece at The Hill:

White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci said public health measures will likely still be needed to keep the coronavirus pandemic under control even with the development of a vaccine as it could end up being effective just half of the time.

“We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be. We don’t know if it will be 50 percent or 60 percent. I’d like it to be 75 percent or more,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Friday during a webinar hosted by Brown University, according to CNBC.

“But the chances of it being 98 percent effective are not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach,” he said.

[End]

Ok, so, what he is telling you here is exactly what I’ve been telling you since March: That a COVID-19 vaccine will be just like the annual flu vaccine, i.e., not a “vaccine” at all, but a treatment that is only going to be marginally effective.

Fauci’s final sentence there is very telling, and something he never focuses on because it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money: What we really should be doing as a nation is moving on with our lives and focusing on protecting the most vulnerable among us – the elderly and people with underlying conditions – and developing effective treatments for this virus that save lives of those who catch it.

You know, like Hydroxychloroquine, which Fauci also refuses to endorse since it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money, either.

This man is a menace. Period.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – The riots continued to escalate again last night, their 77th consecutive night without relief. As usual, we only know this through the efforts of real journalist Any Ngo, who risks his well-being every day to report the truth.

The Antifa/BLM threats to residents continue to escalate:

Oh, hey, guess what? The police declared a riot. Again.

Lots of arrests being made. But of course, the local Soros-funded DA just lets them right back out onto the streets:

At this point, it is once again obvious that communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown and communist Mayor Ted Wheeler have no intention of allowing their state and local police to protect the population and shut these rioters down.

These people will not stop until they are stopped. It’s not complicated.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Trolls the Press as Portland Spirals out of Control

Let’s start with this bit of hilarity from President Donald Trump at his impromptu press conference last night:

I’ve watched it 20 times and still laugh out loud.

The trouble with Susan Rice is that she’s a liar and probably a criminal. – Other than that, she’d make a great vice president. At least, the Democrats appear to think so, with rumors continuing to swirl that she now leads the horse race to become Joe Biden’s designated successor, er, “running mate.”

Writing at RealClearInvestigation, Eric Felton published a terrific expose’ of how Rice’s serial lies could ultimately lead to her prosecution.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

Susan Rice, the vice presidential contender with a high-profile history of questionable public statements, has another dubious claim in her past that until now has escaped scrutiny. Rice swore under oath that as President Obama’s national security adviser she was never told about the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. But former FBI Director James Comey testified that Rice was present when he informed Obama all about Crossfire Hurricane just weeks after the investigation was launched.

James Comey: His account of telling the White House about Crossfire Hurricane differs markedly from Susan Rice’s recollection. She testified: “We were not informed by Director Comey or the attorney general that there was an active investigation of anybody in the Trump orbit.”

The contradiction could lead to charges that Rice lied to Congress about a topic still of intense interest to investigators: How actively involved in the effort to spy on the Trump campaign was the inner circle of the Obama White House, including the president himself? More immediately, the question of whether Rice told the truth on Capitol Hill might damage her bid to join Joe Biden on the Democratic presidential ticket.

Rice earned a reputation for shading the truth after the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. She was famously dispatched to five different Sunday morning news shows to repeat false talking points: that the mob that killed four Americans – including Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens – was merely reacting to an obscure YouTube video mocking Islam.

Questions about her forthrightness were redoubled when Senate investigators found that, in the waning minutes of the Obama administration, Rice wrote a curious “memo to the file.” She sent an email to herself on the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, and in it claimed that Obama had insisted that everything to do with Russia, whether law enforcement or counterintelligence, be done “by the book.”

President Obama and Rice: Both were present at a meeting where, the FBI’s Comey said, the Trump-Russia probe was discussed at its outset. She denied knowing about it.

Asked about that memo later, Rice insisted she knew nothing about the FBI’s counterintelligence probe regarding Trump and Russia, let alone anything that could be characterized as spying on the incoming administration. She had her lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler, write a letter to Sens. Charles Grassley, Dianne Feinstein, Lindsey Graham, and Sheldon Whitehouse. “While serving as National Security Advisor, Ambassador Rice was not briefed on the existence of any FBI investigation into allegations of collusion between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia,” Ruemmler wrote, “and she later learned of the fact of this investigation from Director Comey’s subsequent public testimony” – testimony that didn’t occur until March 20, 2017

On Wednesday, September 8, 2017, Rice repeated that she knew nothing of the FBI’s investigation while in the White House. This time she made the claim under oath.

Rice was at the Capitol, sitting in a secure room used by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The official reason for the interview was to ask what the Obama administration had done to thwart Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Behind those questions was a different query: Had Barack Obama’s team used the power of the presidency to spy on and smear the Trump campaign?

With the expectation of facing unfriendly questions, Rice arrived with two attorneys from the law firm Latham & Watkins.

Adam Schiff: “… [W]ould Director Comey brief you on the progress of his investigation?” he asked Rice. “No,” replied Rice under oath.

The Republican staffer running the interview emphasized to Rice the importance of telling the truth: “You are reminded that it is unlawful to deliberately provide false information to members of Congress or staff.” She was asked to raise her right hand and take an oath: “Madam Ambassador, do you swear or affirm that the testimony you’re about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”

“I do,” Rice said.

[End]

Go read the full piece, and then you will fully understand why the Obama Cabal wants Rice to be on the ticket as a means of self-preservation.

Kristi Noem is a boss. – God Bless South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, who has stood out among all of the nation’s 50 governors with her tremendous leadership through the China Virus pandemic. Her state was never shut down, has never had a mask mandate, has never had travel restrictions, has never had a shelter-in-place order, and has seen the best results in the entire country, perhaps in the world.

As other states have witnessed their convention industries literally go up in smoke, Noem’s leadership made it possible for President Trump to stage the magnificent tribute to America at Mount Rushmore on July 3. This weekend, that same leadership has set the stage for this to happen:

Thanks to Governor Noem’s leadership, the people of South Dakota are still living their best lives, and that fact will be celebrated by a quarter of a million bikers this week.

America.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – We go from the best example of real leadership in a crisis our country has to offer directly to the very worst example, in Ted Wheeler’s communist republic of Portland. There, as we mentioned yesterday, the Democrat Party-sponsored rioters have now expanded their base of destruction to include not just the city center, but now at least one residential area as well, as state and local police continue to be hamstrung by Wheeler and communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown.

Here are examples of last night’s mayhem, chronicled as usual by real journalist Andy Ngo:

Here’s a notice sent out to residents of that neighborhood – I’m sure this made them feel so much better:

Hooboy.

But the rioters of course remained active in the downtown area as well:

Look, this is spiraling completely out of control now. Unless Brown and Wheeler release the state and local LEOs to really do their jobs using all riot control tools at their disposal, the rioters will only continue to expand their operations into additional areas of the city. It is one thing to sit back and allow these goons to occupy and destroy public property: It is quite another thing to let them do the same things in residential areas where the lives of private citizens and their children come into risk.

If the communist Democrats won’t stop this, then the President must do it for them, regardless of any political considerations. The separation of powers only works when the people holding power in a given jurisdiction are well-meaning Americans. That obviously is no longer the case in Portland.

That is all.

Democrats Are Destroying Their Own Cities, and it all Makes Perfect Sense

America’s cities are dying, and no one in the Democrat Party seems to want to do anything to stop it from happening. In fact, it is Democrats who are actively managing the chaos and destruction. Ask yourselves why that is the case.

After all, the big cities represent almost the entire base of power for the Democrat Party. That’s why the county-by-county presidential election maps always look like a sea of red with little blue islands sprinkled onto it.

Election Results in the Third Dimension - Metrocosm

Most of those islands are the counties where the big cities are. The sea of red is where they aren’t. This isn’t complicated.

Yet, right now, as we sit isolated in our homes today thinking about which useless, virtue-signaling mask we will wear when we venture out to the grocery store, Democrat mayors and city councils all over the country are willingly presiding over the complete destruction of their centers of power.

The mass exodus out of New York City that is happening right now under communist Bill de Blasio’s buffoonish leadership has become so severe that it had mass murdering Governor Andrew Cuomo actually begging wealthy people to move back, promising to buy them drinks and dinner if they do:

Mayors like De Blasio, Lori Lightfoot in Chicago and Muriel Bowser in Washington, DC appear bent on completely destroying their cities’ tourism industries, which are the life’s blood for their local economies. All three communist Democrat mayors have now imposed 14 day quarantine requirements against any person entering their cities from a broad list of other U.S. states, as well as other countries. This is madness, plain and simple.

Or maybe it’s something else entirely. Perhaps it isn’t madness at all, but simply a part of the goal of any communist in America, which is to destroy our nation’s institutions and economy in order to render the population destitute, isolated, frightened and needy, and thus far easier to control.

We must all wake up and recognize that today’s “Democrats” are not our father’s or grandfather’s Democrats. We have no doubt all known so many Democrats in our lives who voted for that party’s candidates out of a sense of compassion for the poor and perceived generosity, albeit with other people’s money. Voting for Democrats has been their means of assuaging their own guilt over having so much in their lives.

Anyone who still believes that today’s Democrat Party still has anything even slightly resembling a sense of compassion for the poor in our society is living in some warped, post-apocalyptic version of Fantasy Island. Literally the only thing today’s Democrat politicians care about doing with the poor is to manufacture more of them, whether that be by destroying our own economy or by opening up the borders to anyone who wants to come in and become dependent on our already overwhelmed social safety net.

Do any of you really still believe that San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer have tanked the latest stimulus bill because they want more in it for the poor? That’s what the trillion dollar GOP Senate bill is focused on doing.

The stuff the Democrats want to lard into it in fact involves about a trillion dollars to bail out their own poorly-managed states and cities that they have run into the ground over the past half century, giving a gigantic tax break to wealthy people in New York and California, and spending another trillion or so on “Green New Deal” nonsense that will dramatically increase everyone’s power bills, a move that would hit the poorest the hardest.

The irony is that congressional Democrats are trying to bail out the big cities that local Democrat officials are in the process of intentionally destroying. This week, in response to Cuomo’s pleading, the Big Doofus de Blasio told reporters that “New York is for New Yorkers.”

He then went on to say the following (read carefully):

“We must build our policies around working people,” he said. “If the federal government fails us we should immediately return to Albany to the discussion put a tax on wealthy New Yorkers.”

“While everyone else is suffering, you see stock markets rising, the rich getting richer. Wealthy New Yorkers, they can pay a bit more so can get through this crisis,” de Blasio continued.

De Blasio during his press conference also advised New Yorkers against buying a car. “My advice to New Yorkers is don’t buy a car, cars are the past, future is mass transit, biking, hiking,” the mayor said. “Going forward I will never buy a car again.”

“There’s a lot of New Yorkers who are wealthy who are true believers in New York City and will stand and fight with us, and some may be fair-weathered friends, but they will be replaced by others,” the mayor continued.

[End]

Will the wealthy who are fleeing the city really be replaced by others, as the Mayor contends? What wealthy person in his or her right mind would move to New York City as it exists today?  What person of means would voluntarily move into a city to pay double the taxes he or she would owe in a neighboring state? What person with an innovative, forward-looking mind would want to live under the yoke of a communist Mayor who wants his citizens to eliminate their own independence and mobility?

Even more to the point: What person of means would want to live in what has become a hell-hole with skyrocketing crime and constant rioting, and which is governed by a communist Mayor and city council that is actively de-funding the police department?

And it’s not just New York City: The very same dynamics are taking place in Democrat-run cities all over the country. We talk about Portland, Chicago, Seattle and Minneapolis a lot, but the exact same things are happening in Democrat-run cities in red states like Texas and Louisiana and Tennessee and Georgia.

It all seems like madness, this effort by Democrats to destroy the cities that serve as their base of power. But, when you accept the reality that today’s Democrat Party is now a violent, radicalized, Alinskyite/communist organization with all the attendant overarching goals that come with it, you realize it isn’t madness at all, but just a necessary piece of the Grand Plan.

Once you accept who today’s Democrats truly are, everything they do makes perfect sense.

Alex Berenson Explodes the “Wear Your Mask!!!!” Myth in 6 Easy Tweets

Just thought this was very compelling and everyone should see it, given our ongoing national insanity over the wearing of useless masks to give us a false sense of security over the China virus.

Cuomo Moves to Open Schools and Other Great News for Trump

So much good news on this Friday it’s hard to know where to begin. 

Let’s start with the jobs report from the Labor Department today. The Trump economy continues to refuse to cooperate with the “experts” surveyed by the corrupt news media, who had projected the economy would add 1.4 million new jobs during July. The actual number came in at 1.8 million, led by the Leisure and Hospitality sector with 592k jobs, Retail Trade (+258k jobs) and professional and business services (+170k jobs).

The only business sector tracked by DOL to lose jobs was the Mining sector, which includes the oil and gas industry. That sector shed another 7,000 jobs, which is not surprising given the havoc that has been wrought in that part of our economy.

The unemployment rate fell to 10.2 percent vs. the “expert” projection that it would only drop to 10.5 percent. We obviously need to find some new “experts.”

Next, you have San Fran Nan, Chuckie Schumer and the depraved congressional Democrats continuing to stonewall on getting another stimulus bill done. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin rejected a “compromise” offered by Pelosi today that would have allowed her to add in a trillion dollars of Democrat wish list junk – mostly “Green New Deal” porkbarrel stupidity – to the trillion dollar bill that the Senate Republicans are ready to approve.

This sets the stage for President Donald Trump to save the day for millions of unemployed workers and small business owners by issuing executive orders addressing unemployment reform, prohibiting the IRS from collecting the payroll tax and extending eviction protections that expired at the end of July.

With the stimulus negotiations now shut down through at least the weekend, this is a prime chance for the President to execute these orders to deny the Democrats receiving any credit from Americans suffering under the insane grip of their party’s governors around the country.

Biden’s gonna pick Susan Rice. The day just keeps getting better and better, according to a piece at the Wall Street Journal:

Susan Rice, believed to be a top contender to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, has sold a significant proportion of the Netflix Inc. shares she has acquired since becoming a company director in May 2018.

The former national security adviser and United Nations ambassador for President Obama exercised roughly a quarter of the more than 5,200 options she held as of this week, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing dated Thursday.

Mr. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is expected to announce his running mate next week. Ms. Rice is viewed as a strong contender because she worked closely with him when he was vice president and he is known to value personal relationships.

Please, oh, please, please, please let this be so. Rice has the gravitas of a spoiled nectarine and the only reason for choosing her would be to prevent her from being indicted by John Durham prior to Election Day. The hilarious thing for Biden is that the Obama cabal may just be forcing him to make this move in order to protect their interests.

Fantastic.

The talking points, they are a-changin’ for the communist Democrats. Both Andrew Cuomo and Chuckie Schumer suddenly reversed course today after months of pushing the narrative that it was just too darn dangerous to open schools this fall.

Remember the first rule of understanding how Democrats work: Everything they do or say is dictated by polls. For several weeks now, they have felt comfortable that their campaign to keep the economy and schools shut down for as long as possible was not harming them in the polls. Today’s sudden shift in talking points on those subjects indicates they have received new polling data showing the public is waking up to their game and does not approve.

They also see their efforts to keep the economy in depression failing with today’s news on employment and the other positive economic indicators that have the NASDAQ setting new record highs on almost a daily basis. So now they suddenly have Pelosi offering to trim her ludicrous 3.4 trillion dollar wish list down to 2 trillion in one fell swoop so that they might sucker Mnuchin and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows into a bad deal that would allow them to take partial credit for any positive results.

Be glad Mnuchin and Meadows didn’t take the bait.

The tide is turning, folks. Have a great weekend.

Friday News Roundup: Durham Targets Brennan, Portland Rioters Expand Their Operations

This happened on Thursday:

Now, ok, I get it: Many of you are going to respond with “well, it’s about time! What in the hell has Durham been doing????” Yeah, ok, get it out of your system. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

There, you done? Feel better now?

Ok. Look, in this kind of case, which involves literally dozens of potential targets for prosecution and dozens more potential witnesses who must be vetted, federal prosecutors like Mr. Durham will always – ALWAYS – wait to interview the big fish last.

The reason why is simple: They want to give the smaller fish – like, say, Peter Strzok or Bruce Ohr or Kevin Clinesmith – every opportunity to make a deal and turn state’s witness before they talk to the really big targets like Durham and Comey. This is the natural progression of any such investigation.

So, for better or worse, this is actually great news, a sign that Durham is finally getting to the end of his investigation. Attorney General William Barr has twice promised a “report” from Durham by the “end of summer,” which is September 22. Barr has also indicated that Durham has had at least one grand jury convened, and it is the job of a grand jury to true bill indictments.

Hopefully it isn’t all a Jeff Sessions-like smoke screen, but we will find out either way soon enough.

Stay tuned.

Hey, look: A random act of actual journalism at NPR. – Watch despicable Nancy Pelosi’s reaction as her trusted toady Judy Woodruff goes off-script and actually asks her a semi-tough question:

For a moment there, Woodruff must have remembered that she used to be a journalist. You can be sure she will not make that mistake again when talking to Pelosi.

And now a word from the mindless blithering hacks at Morning Joe. – Watch this clip and marvel as the liberals at Morning Joe twist themselves into racist pretzels in their efforts to serve as apologist for the Democrat Party’s addled nominee, Joe Biden:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. What you are watching here in real time is the Democrat Party removing its own mask and returning to its Jim Crow past. All for the sake of getting the Bad Orange Man out of the White House. Amazing.

Gosh, Ted, who tipped you off? – Portland’s communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler suddenly woke up on Thursday and realized that the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters who he has been allowing to run wild in his city are creating b-roll for President Donald Trump to use in his re-election campaign ads. Hey, I wonder what tipped him off?

From a piece at KGW8 TV in Portland:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell spoke about the ongoing violence in Portland during a news conference Thursday.

On Wednesday night, Portland police declared a riot, arrested 8 people and used tear gas after a crowd of a couple hundred people gathered outside the East Precinct. Some people in the crowd tried to set the building on fire while officers and others were inside, the mayor said. Others tried to smash the glass doors of the precinct building and threw large, heavy rocks and other items at officers.

Wheeler said what happened Wednesday night “was intended to cause serious injury or death, and it very well could have.”

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating. You are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said.

[End]

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyy. But it gets better.

From a piece at Willamette Week:

“Don’t think for a moment that, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” Wheeler said. “Because you absolutely are. You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

[End]

Ok, so, what did the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters do in response to their partner’s admonitions? Why, they expanded their operations into a residential district, naturally.

For coverage of that, we must turn to real, actual journalist Andy Ngo, since the hacks in the corrupt corporate news media refuse to do their jobs:

But never fear: The Democrat Antifa/BLM rioters did not abandon their downtown mission:

So, the situation in Portland – which your corrupt news media continues to describe as “mostly peaceful” – is now about to spiral out of control unless the rioters’ Democrat sponsors pull their funding. Maybe this was why President Trump was once again speculating about ramping up federal involvement in that city again yesterday.

That is all.

Corrupt New York AG Files Political Suit Against NRA Boogeyman

Just another Soros-funded communist Democrat attorney general undermining the constitution. Nothing to see here. – New York Attorney General Letitia James is a real glutton for punishment, and it runs both ways.

She is fond of punishing the taxpayers of New York by running up huge bills prosecuting idiotic lawsuits that have no chance of prevailing. Like she did in her infamous pursuit of ExxonMobil, a lawsuit that ended up with her unceremoniously being poured out of court by a Democrat state judge because her claims were so idiotic. So she dishes the punishment out to New Yorkers and defendants named in her moronic pursuits, and she gladly takes it when judges roll their eyes and issue their summary judgments.

Because Letitia James is a Soros-funded Alinskyite radical, her lawsuits are not about winning: They are about politics and the destruction of the American justice system. They are about constructing boogeymen and slandering them in the fawning press, which is every bit as corrupt as she is. They’re about doing the bidding of the Democrat Party and its funders, like Soros and the radical climate alarmist lobby.

Thus it was that we saw Ms. James step before the gathered press on Thursday and announce that she has filed a major lawsuit demanding that the National Rifle Association be disbanded, mainly based on the idiotic grounds that the NRA’s longtime President, Wayne LaPierre, apparently cheated massively on his expense account.

Huh?

Not kidding. If you watched her presser – which I painfully did – you saw this evil hack AG speak for about 20 minutes on the topic of LaPierre’s expense account: The lavish dinners; the trip paid for by NRA donors, the golf outings with politicians, and on and on and on. If this sounds like an instance in which the NRA ought to be suing LaPierre and having him personally prosecuted for embezzlement, well, you’re not alone.

But hey, you don’t get your money from George Soros front organizations.

Since the NRA is chartered in the state of New York, Ms. James seeks to disband the organization mainly because its President is apparently a greedy embezzler. Obviously, this is not a lawsuit Ms. James should even be bringing, much less expect to win. But again, she is not about winning: She is about corrupting the legal process and making news shortly before a major election by demonizing a group that is tightly associated with the Republican Party.

This is what today’s Democrat Party has become, folks. As it sits today, it is the second-largest communist/terrorist organization in world history, just behind the Russian Bolsheviks. If you vote for Democrats – any Democrat – you are voting for your country’s destruction.

This is not complicated.

But if Ms. James thought the NRA would take this prosecutorial abuse sitting down, she was sadly mistaken. The group immediately responded by filing a counter-suit of its own.

From a report by Fox News:

The National Rifle Association is fighting back against a lawsuit filed Thursday by New York’s attorney general by submitting its own civil suit against the state official, accusing her of defamation and violating its rights to free speech.

The NRA’s lawsuit was filed in the federal court of New York and alleges Attorney General Letitia James “made the political prosecution of the NRA a central campaign theme” when she was running for the AG’s office in 2018, and has not treated the association fairly since.

“Despite hopes that playing by the rules would procure a just outcome, the NRA has not been treated fairly by James’s office,” the 19-page suit states. “The New York Democratic Party political machine seeks to harass, defund, and dismantle the NRA because of what it believes and what it says.”

The defamation allegations stem from James’ public descriptions of the NRA as a “criminal enterprise” and “a terrorist organization.”

“James boasted that she would strike foul blows against the NRA and pound the NRA into submission. She vowed that she would use the NYAG’s investigative and enforcement powers for the precise purpose of stanching political speech (‘deadly propaganda),” the lawsuit states. “She has begun to deliver on her campaign promises to retaliate against the NRA for constitutionally protected speech on issues that James opposes. As NYAG, James has regrettably succumbed to ‘individual passions, and individual malevolence.’”

That last part is really good, and perfectly accurate. It just left out the malevolent presence of Soros and his front groups who paid to put her in the job in the first place.

That is all.

With Today’s Racist Ouburst, Joe Biden is now Almost Beyond Parody

“Look, look, here’s the deal: The piggy says ‘oink, oink, oink,’ and if you disagree with me, you ain’t black, Jack.” – Let’s start with this bit of all-too-realistic hilarity from the folks at the Babylon Bee:

Admit it: It’s only funny because you initially think it might be real.

Ok, now, this really is real. – Watch as the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee reveals what he truly does think about America’s Black community:

And here’s the truth: This is not just how Joe Biden really thinks of African Americans – that they’re monolithic thinkers, all the same, all should vote Democrat or “they ain’t Black” as he stated a few weeks ago – it’s really and truly what the Democrat Party as a whole thinks of them, and has for…well, pretty much forever.

The problem Biden as nominee presents to the Democrat Party – well, one of the thousands of problems – is not merely that he is racist: It’s that these old ways of ‘talkin’ to black folks’ are so ingrained in his diminishing mind that he is not able to break the habit. He can’t be trained to engage in the leftist double-speak that now dominates Democrat Party condescension to the Black community.

This is why you likely will never see Biden on a stage debating President Donald Trump for 2 or 3 hours this fall. I saw one TV talking head defend Biden the other day by pointing out the fact that he has already participated in half a dozen televised debates with his Democrat opponents over the past year. There are several reasons why Biden’s participation in those debates does little to prepare him for a debate with the President:

– He was debating fellow Democrats with questions coming only from fawning Democrat activists pretending to be “journalists;”

– His total speaking time during any one of those debates never amounted to more than about 10 minutes and was far less than that in several of them; and

– He was not getting hit with pointed rejoinders by a hostile opponent, with the lone exception coming when Kamala Harris cynically pretended to have been one of the children of the 1970s who was impacted by Biden’s opposition to forced busing [she wasn’t].

It is one thing for an elderly man with a declining mind to keep things together well enough to survive about 10 minutes of actual participation in a debate with a dozen other people. It is pretty easy to just sit back and hide in such a situation, which Biden did throughout most of those debates. And we need to remember that, even with all of that, he still horrifically embarrassed himself time after time after time.

It is quite another thing entirely for such a man to hold things together for 2 or 3 hours on a stage with a single opponent with no place to hide. As we have seen three times now in just the last 24 hours, Biden is simply not capable of avoiding saying embarrassing things even when faced with pure softball questions. On the rare occasion he is faced with an actual semi-tough question – as he was yesterday when the Black reporter asked him if he has ever taken a cognitive test – he is prone to having irrational outbursts and childish temper tantrums.

This is who Joe Biden is, folks. He was a walking gaffe machine decades ago, long before his mind started to decline. Now he has pretty much completely lost his filter, and we see all the racist stuff just come pouring out of his mouth before he even realizes he’s doing it.

I’ll leave you with this wonderful clip of Robin Williams doing a tremendous parody of Biden back in 2009. It was relevant then, and even more relevant today [profanity warning]:

That is all.
