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.

Candace Owens: “This is the Greatest Rigging of an American Election”

Candace Owens, the great young Black conservative political activist who helped to start the #WalkAway movement that will likely lead to President Trump receiving a significantly higher percentage of the Black vote this year, had some really smart things to say about this election in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation yesterday.

Owens’ view is that COVID-19 and the panic around it created by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the corporate news media amounts to the “greatest rigging of an American election” we have ever seen. At this point, it is pretty hard to argue with that assessment.

Here are several clips from that interview, followed by a transcript of some of her key quotes from it:

Transcript:

“Coronavirus is the greatest rigging of an American election that has ever taken place— and we are all unwitting participants.

“We don’t see the candidates, right? The candidates are not allowed to travel. They can’t talk about their policies. Who knows? They’re already saying now, at The New York Times, that there might not be a debate.

“The Left is completely hiding their campaign. That is their strategy: ‘We’re going to hide Joe Biden so you never have to meet him. And, at the same time, we’re going to tell the current president that he can’t he can’t travel – but, if he does any events, if he has a room full of people, that it’s all dangerous and against safety measures and it’s not right.

“Then, you have them talking about mail-in voting, which we know is corrupt. We know it’s corruptible. We know that it allows for tons of rigging.

“Now, they’ve crashed the economy and forced a ton of people that maybe would have considered some conservative voting, it they had a job, their lives were together.

“Well, now they’re relying of the Left’s Socialist system. They’re relying on stimulus checks. And, that means they’re going to be more inclined to vote for someone who has more Socialist perspective.

“They’re not allowed to work, right? So that naturally puts them out of the category of voting that they maybe would’ve been in if things had been normal, right?

“So, we see all this stuff happening and we’re supposed to think that November is not being impacted by all of this.

“Of course it is.”

[End]

Yes, of course it is.

Equally as compelling were Owens’ comments on how leftist Democrats have “destroyed Black America”, after the interviewer asked her about a flyer distributed for years by the Museum of African American History that attributed all manner of family values-kinds of things as being exclusively “white” and thus, things Black Americans should shun.

Here are some of the quotes from that passage:

“Because they’re trying to destroy Black America. I shouldn’t even say ‘trying.’ They’ve successfully destroyed Black America. And they’ve done it through culture. They’ve done it by telling kids that there is something wrong with aspiring to do things right.

“You can see this now in certain schools – they are trying to teach kids that there is something wrong with even trying to learn to speak proper English. They’re saying that that is wrong and racist. So, they’re talking about introducing courses in Ebonics – slang – that Black Americans need to develop their own sub-culture apart from White American culture.

“The problem is that this idea of separation and not actually rising to the challenge, and getting smarter and competing and learning proper English…there has never been any group of people that have lagged behind another group of people and gotten ahead by this method.

“A great example of this is David Hume, when he challenged the Scottish people, when they were trailing behind the English people for so long, he turned to the Scottish people and he said to them in the 17th century, you know, we’ve got to learn proper English. Rather than him saying that having to learn proper English is wrong and it’s racist, they rose to the challenge and within a couple of decades the Scots actually passed the English in engineering and science.

“Because they rose to the challenge.”

[End]

Great stuff there.

America is About to Experience its First Outrage Election

Some more compelling poll results are in. – The new poll from YouGov still has Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden leading President Trump by a handful of points nationally. But some of the other numbers in his poll are the real story here, because they are becoming the norm for internals even among the obviously faked-up polls the corrupt news media promotes.

Specifically, this poll shows President Trump receiving the support of 17% of Black voters and 38% of Hispanic voters in arriving at Trump’s total support number of 44% of the registered voters polled.

Those Black and Hispanic percentages are, if accurate, a literal death knell for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. Think about it: Donald Trump got just 6% of the Black vote and just 29% of the Hispanic vote in 2016 and still won the election. If he triples his support among Black voters – a likelihood that more and more of these polls are now showing – and sees a 30% rise in his share of the Hispanic vote, Joe Biden is well and truly doomed.

We know without any doubt at all now that a vast majority of white voters for Trump are what pollsters refer to as “shy” voters, i.e., they are reluctant to be honest with pollsters about their support for the President. This is due to the despicable media/Democrat campaign to brand all Trump supporters as racists. So we know without any doubt at all that many white respondents in this and other poll are in fact lying to the pollsters, which results in a very depressed overall percentage for Trump.

We also know without any doubt at all that Trump’s voter base is the most loyal and unshakable voter base in the modern history of presidential politics. For YouGov to show Trump’s overall support at just 44% when he is simultaneously getting these whopping numbers from Black and Hispanic voters would mean that a very high percentage of his white voters are abandoning him. Yet, we consistently see Trump getting support numbers in excess of 90% among registered GOP voters. There is literally no data whatsoever that would lead us to accept the notion that Trump is losing even a small sliver of his voter base.

Here’s the reality of this election: We have a new national dynamic forming this year. I have often written about my belief that all presidential elections are in reality determined by the national mood. They are all either “change” elections or “status quo” elections. While the corrupt news media and all the pundits focus on all the hundreds of micro-factors that happen during an election season, this overall national mood creates an inertia that is almost impossible for any campaign, no matter how effective or well-funded, to overcome.

This year, for the first time in modern history, we have a completely different overall national mood forming up, and it is one that will very likely carry President Trump to his re-election. Going into 2020, this was shaping up to become a classic “status quo” election year, one in which the incumbent president with a booming economy and relative peace around the world would be easily re-elected over an unappealing opponent.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the Communist Chinese Government’s mendacity obviously changed all of that. The economic shutdown ended the Trump boom and the U.S. now finds itself in an increasingly tense and potentially hostile relationship with the ChiComs. For a few weeks, it was looking like the nation had shifted into “change” election mode.

But then the Democrats made an enormous miscalculation. They had long planned to stage mass riots across the country this summer as a despicable means of shoring up the Black and youth votes and distract from the Trump economic boom. But the George Floyd killing served as a touching-off point for those riots before the Party had taken the time to re-evaluate its strategy in light of the new electoral calculus that had been created by the COVID-19 situation.

The constant spectacle of two solid months of mass riots, looting, burning and destruction and the abject refusal by a single leading Democrat to denounce any of it is now creating a completely new overall national mood for the 2020 presidential election: This year is going to be our first “outrage” election year.

You can see it and feel it building: A growing number of ordinary Americans – White, Black, Hispanic, Asian and everyone in between – who are outraged at what they see in their social media feeds each day and night. Outraged at communist Democrat mayors in major cities all over the country sitting back and allowing their communities to be destroyed by packs of roving thugs. Outraged by the sight of Democrat politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Mazie Hirono refusing to even acknowledge the existence of Antifa, much less utter a negative word about them. Outraged by a corrupt news media that refuses to report the truth that everyone with eyes can plainly see happening around them. Outraged at watching entire teams of millionaire professional athletes kneeling while the national anthem is being played. Outraged at being branded a “racist” for even thinking about voting for the incumbent President of the United States.

The Democrats have dramatically and perhaps fatally overplayed their hands over the past few months, and it will cost them dearly in November. The first American “outrage” election is building, and the inertia that is now present behind it will be impossible to stop.

Call me crazy today if you like, but be sure to get back to me on November 3.

That is all.

Deborah Birx Surrenders to her Character Assassin

Birx predictably caves to Pelosi. – In one of the most disgusting bits of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Deborah Birx played her role to the hilt on Sunday after despicable Nancy Pelosi had made rude and condescending comments about her performance over the past few months. Pelosi, of course, laughably contends Birx has been too loyal to the President and has failed to follow Anthony Fauci in making blatantly false and conflicting statements designed to whip up public hysteria.

So, what does Birx do to defend herself from the Speaker’s unfounded attacks? Why, she lavished praise on one of the most obviously corrupt politicians in American history and went all Fauci about the coronavirus, of course.

From a piece at ABC:

“I think the president is spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his appointee,” Pelosi said. “So I don’t have confidence there, no.”

Pelosi doubled down on her criticism of Birx again on Monday, taking her to task for not challenging Trump about the outbreak and the administration’s lack of a national coronavirus plan.

“I don’t have confidence and anyone who stands there while the president says, ‘Swallow Lysol and it’s going to cure your virus.’ … I don’t have confidence in somebody when the president says it’s a hoax, it’s magic,” Pelosi said on CNN. “She has enabled [him].”

“This administration has not had a strategic plan for the six months we’ve known about the virus,” the California Democrat continued. “There has to be some responsibility, so if the president is saying these things, who is advising him that this is OK and enabling that to happen?”

Birx responded to the “no confidence” comment on CNN on Sunday by complimenting Pelosi before defending her own credibility.

“I have tremendous respect for the speaker. And I have tremendous respect for her long dedication to the American people,” Birx said.

Raising a recent article from the New York Times, which portrayed Birx as someone who at times tailored her analysis of the pandemic to better suit the politics of the administration, Birx insisted her response is driven by data, not politics.

“I have never been called pollyannish, or nonscientific, or non-data driven,” she told CNN Sunday. “And I will stake my 40-year career on those fundamental principles of utilizing data to really implement better programs to save more lives.”

Birx also warned that the pandemic has entered “a new phase,” contradicting the president’s persistently optimistic predictions as he pushes schools to reopen for full in-person instruction and resists any reversals on reopenings.

“I want to be very clear: What we are seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread. It’s into the rural as equal urban areas,” Birx told CNN. “To everybody who lives in a rural area, you are not immune or protected from this virus.”

When asked about a prediction there could be 300,000 deaths by the end of the year, Birx said, “Anything is possible.” She went on to emphasize social distancing and suggest that some Americans in multi-generational families should start wearing masks inside their homes and assume they already have the virus.

[End]

Let’s start by noting that ABC refuses to point out that Pelosi is outright lying when she accuses the President of telling people to “swallow Lysol,” something that never happened. Let’s also note that the President has never, not one time, referred to the virus itself as a “hoax” as Pelosi falsely contends in this piece without correction by ABC. He has referred to the media/Democrat efforts to whip up hysteria about it a “hoax,” and that is a perfectly accurate description of what the media and Democrats have done.

Now to Birx.

Her response is, in a word, pathetic. Her slavish praise of an utterly corrupt tyrant is undeserved and frankly disgusting. It is a sign of weakness and a gesture of surrender. Her comments about the virus entering a “new phase” simply parrot pronouncements Fauci has made repeatedly, offering fear without giving any specifics, a Fauci core competency. Her advocacy that families start wearing masks in the home – after telling the American public on national TV just 3 months ago that masks were completely ineffective at preventing the spread of the virus – amount to 17th century-style blood-letting quackery.

Prior to her Sunday interview, the White House properly defended Birx from Pelosi’s character assassination:

Indeed, the Speaker’s attacks on Birx’s character were so beyond the pale that I almost wrote a post on Sunday defending her myself, but I decided to hold off until I saw Birx’s response. I’m glad now I hit that pause button.

Following Birx’s unilateral surrender to the Speaker, the President had a very predictable response:

See, President Trump doesn’t like surrender monkeys and they don’t like him, which explains the whole “never Trump” movement led by gutless wonders like Stephen Hayes, Max Boot and Bill Kristol.

The worst mistake President Trump has made during this entire pandemic was to listen to Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx over the advice of other advisors. Following their advice is why our nation is in the situation it is in today.

The best response the President could have for the good of the nation today would be to say “Fine, Nancy, I don’t have any confidence in Dr. Birx either, and she’s fired. Come to think of it, Fauci’s fired, too” and start taking advice from real doctors who treat real patients, and from real parents who have real kids who have already lost a year of learning due to our national insanity over this virus.

Then we could all sit back and watch every leftist head on the face of the earth explode simultaneously. It would be glorious.

Monday News Roundup: The Madness in Democrat Cities Will Escalate Until the Voter Madness Stops

The boat rallies continue, and they keep growing larger. – The Wuhan Virus restrictions against large publi gatherings – except, of course, for Democrat Party-sponsored rioters – have produced a new national phenomenon:  The Boat Rally.

Actually, the correct description of these events is the “Trump Boat Rally” since there have been no similar rallies for Joe Biden or any Democrat, which, come to think of it, is just like the massive in-person rallies that were exclusively a Trump phenomenon. They’ve become a great way for Trump supporters to show their love and support for the President without violating any of the unconstitutional edicts handed down by their governors, with at least one such rally taking place somewhere in the nation each weekend.

On Saturday, it was St. Augustine, Florida’s turn:

Cool.

Here’s the front page on Sunday’s New York Post:

Image

This sad fact is brought to you directly by the policies of communist Democrat Mayor Bill De Blasio. There is literally no one else to blame. And New Yorkers brought this on themselves by electing the jackass in 2014 and then – after having seen for four long years what an evil despot he truly is – re-electing him again in 2018.

The Big Apple is dying before our eyes because that’s what the voters asked for. You could never make this stuff up, folks.

Things aren’t much better in Minneapolis. – With communist Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey and his fellow communist Democrats on the city council slashing the police budget and inhibiting the department’s ability to effectively deal with criminals, violent crime and robberies are shooting through the roof in Minneapolis. In response to this reality, the Minneapolis city government sent out the following advice to citizens on Saturday:

Image

That’s right: The citizens of Minneapolis can no longer have any expectation of police protection. They simply must learn to behave like frightened targets of roving bands of thugs whenever they go out in public and be prepared to turn over their cash, wallets and car keys whenever they’re assaulted and pray the criminal doesn’t kill them anyway.

This is how communist Democrats expect us all to live today. This truly is their goal, and they aren’t even bothering to try to hide it anymore.

It’s just status quo Lori Lightfoot style in Chicago. – It was just another weekend with dozens of shootings and deaths on the streets of Chicago, with almost all of the victims being African American. But these are black lives that don’t matter to Black Lives Matter or communist Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot, whose polices led directly to a whopping 139% increase in shootings during July.

One of the victims this weekend sadly included a 9 year-old child. From a report by WGN:

CHICAGO — A Near North Side community is calling on city leaders for help in the wake of a 9-year-old’s murder on Friday, leaving a neighborhood traumatized and crying out for mental health support services Sunday.

Community leaders returned to the spot where 9-year-old Janari Ricks was gunned down to say enough is enough. Standing next to balloons, candles and teddy bears commemorating Ricks’ heartbreakingly short life, they called for shooters to turn themselves in and both community and government members to take on gun violence.

“We are adamant about getting this young man captured and seized for the senseless act he committed and we are asking him again, turn yourself in; if you turn yourself in you can make this a whole lot easier,” said Raymond Richard, Brothers Standing Together. “You know what you did, you know who you are, and we are gonna pray that you do the right thing.”

One of the main messages from community activists like Andrew Holmes Sunday: stop protecting shooters.

“These are our babies that are falling,” Holmes said. “Carbon monoxide is a silent killer, COVID-19 you can’t see it neither, but the shooter you see him.”

[End]

Yes, you can see the shooters. It’s just that Lori Lightfoot refuses to let the police do anything effective to stop them. Chicago has had nothing but Democrat mayors since 1931. This madness will only continue to escalate so long as the voters’ madness on election days continues.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – While you listen to the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC tell you that all is well and peaceful in Portland, Oregon now that the federal law enforcement presence has been diminished, here is what really took place in that city under siege by Democrat-sponsored domestic terrorists last night, courtesy of Andy Ngo:

 

But there was one bit of good news:

From Mr. Ngo’s piece in the New York Post:

Shortly after midnight on Tuesday morning, videos captured the moment a makeshift bomb was thrown at the Portland federal courthouse during another night of violent protest. A Trump-loving, 69-year-old woman soon stepped forward to out the suspect publicly — as her own grandson.

Karla Fox says she recognized the alleged bomber as her daughter’s son, 18-year-old Gabriel “Rico” Agard-Berryhill.

In the hours after the IED attack, social-media users analyzed videos showing a slim male, wearing a distinctive olive vest with the word “ICONS” printed on it, throwing something over the fence at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse. Seconds later, a large explosion erupts, covering the front door in flames. The man picks up something off the ground and sprints off-camera. Police said the concussion could be “heard and felt more than a block away.”

Fox instantly identified her grandson because she gave him the vest.

“I bought the vest for him after he found one online after getting hit with rubber bullets the night before at the protest,” Fox told The Post. (She even left a positive review on clothing site Hibbett: “I got this for my grandson who’s a protester downtown, he uses it every night and says it does the job.”) She posted a photo of him posing in the $26 non-bulletproof apparel.

[End]

Fantastic. God bless Karla Fox and the millions of law-abiding Americans just like her all over the country.

That is all.

The Democrats are Running out of Time on Their Hidin’ Biden Farce

Even Biden’s potential running mates are starting to lose patience with his inability form ideas into sentences. – Check out Elizabeth Warren actually rolling her eyes as Biden bumbles around to catch a thought that zooms into and out of his noggin:

Which brings us to this little nugget from Dan Bongino:

If you’re surprised by this, you are a new reader at Today’s Campaign Update. Given that their faux “convention” is just barely two weeks away, the Democrats obviously do have a huge decision to make where Biden is concerned. Do they draft Obama to go to his former Vice President and tell him the game is over and he must withdraw for the good of the Party? Or do they just brazenly tough it out with the Hidin’ Biden strategy and keep their “candidate” closeted up in his basement all the way through Election Day?

Many people think that drafting a new nominee and mounting a campaign with him or her would be a fairly simple thing, but it wouldn’t be. For one thing, there’s the money question. Biden has raised several hundred million dollars for his campaign, and that money is not transferable to a different nominee. Thus, a Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama or Andrew Cuomo would have to basically start from scratch against an opponent, President Donald Trump, who has already raised over half a billion dollars for his own campaign.

That’s a huge hill to climb, folks.

Then there’s the question of how you mount a campaign without doing in-person rallies of any real size, and while refusing to debate your opponent. We have to understand that this factor is precisely why the Democrats have so fiercely fought to keep our economy depressed and shut down: They are perfectly willing to keep millions of Americans out of work and to destroy millions of small businesses if it means they have a rationale to deny the President his ability to conduct public rallies.

Will the public buy it when Biden says he refuses to debate the President because he might – gasp! – lie during a debate? Think about how independent voters, for whom these debates actually are staged every four years, would react to that excuse. It’s a giant risk for the Democrats to take.

But it may indeed be a necessary one for the Party to try. Biden has clearly declined rapidly over the past 16 months, and he was already obviously impaired when he entered the race last April. This is a man who cannot hold a simple press conference without holding a list of pre-selected “reporters” to call on, reporters who have been selected by Biden’s handlers because they have promised to avoid tough questions.

Biden struggles to read a short speech from a TelePrompter now, and is unsteady on  his feet. These are the major reasons why the Democrats have gone to such epic lengths to ensure that party conventions had to become virtual events. We should not be surprised if they even come up with some pretense for Biden’s virtual acceptance speech to be pre-recorded rather than a live delivery so that his gaffes can be carefully edited out.

With recent polling showing that Biden’s voter enthusiasm levels have tanked to historic lows not seen since the days of Walter Mondale, the Democrat/Media axis of disinformation is even going to find it increasingly difficult to keep rolling out the fake polls and have anyone believe them. There is increasing chatter at social gatherings and across social media about the dearth of Biden yard signs, bumper stickers and other campaign paraphernalia appearing anywhere in the country.

When people can see with their own eyes that literally no one they know is a Biden supporter, and their Democrat acquaintances laugh whenever his name is brought up, the pretense of fake polls showing him with double-digit leads loses any real impact. In fact, at this point it is safe to say that the media/pollster campaign to depress Trump voter enthusiasm has been an abject, miserable failure.

But here’s the thing about all of this: Biden has made it clear that he’s going to announce his running mate selection this week. Once he crosses that threshold, it becomes even more difficult for the Party to kick him off to the curb.

It’s a real conundrum for the party leaders, and the reality is that actually don’t have an alternative who is all that attractive. Abandoning Biden now, after all of the promises he has made to get the party’s various factions on board with his candidacy, would inevitably cause massive splits in the party’s demented voter base, with the new candidate having barely two months to try to bring them all back into the fold.

The Democrat convention begins on August 17, two weeks from today. Those two weeks are going to be incredibly interesting.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Chicago Killings, Covid-19 Fraud and Biden Will Never Debate Trump

Hey, Scientologists are positively sane compared to most Democrats. What’s the big deal? – Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee, is planning to announce his chosen replacemen…er,….’running mate’ in the next few days. His list of potential candidates probably got a little shorter on Saturday, although it’s hard to really understand why.

Karen Bass, a communist Democrat member of congress from California, had been on that list, with some considering her to be one of the leaders in the competition. But on Saturday, video was released of the Com/Dem making glowing remarks about the cult of Scientology in a speech that she delivered way back in 2010. She also found herself on the defensive about remarks she made praising communist dictator Fidel Castro upon his blessed death in 2016.

From a story at Fox News:

Rep. Karen Bass, D-Caif., a contender for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, is scrambling to explain past comments praising Fidel Castro and the Church of Scientology.

“The Church of Scientology I know has made a difference, because your creed is a universal creed and one that speaks to all people everywhere,” Bass said in the video obtained by the Daily Caller.

“The words are exciting of your founder, L. Ron Hubbard, in The Creed of the Church of Scientology: that all people of whatever race, color or creed, are created with equal rights,” she said.

On Saturday, Bass released a statement noting that she worships at a Baptist church, and says that at the event she “found an area of agreement in their beliefs — where all people, of whatever race, color, or creed are created with equal rights, which is what my remarks were about.”

“Since then, published first-hand accounts in books, interviews and documentaries have exposed this group. Everyone is now aware of the allegations against Scientology,” she said. “Back in 2010, I attended the event knowing I was going to address a group of people with beliefs very different than my own, and spoke briefly about things I think most of us agree with, and on those things — respect for different views, equality, and fighting oppression — my views have not changed.”

Bass traveled to Cuba in 1973 with an organization called the Venceremos Brigade, a joint venture between the regime and left-wing U.S. groups that organized trips for Americans to build homes in the country. During that trip she went to see Castro speak.

In 2016, when Castro died, she referred to him as “commandante en jefe” (commander in chief), and said his passing was a “great loss to the people of Cuba.” Those remarks have been criticized by Democrats in Florida in particular.

“Praise like the one that was given by Bass at the time of Castro’s death is inconsistent with my family’s experience with what the regime did — and continues to do — to people on the island, which is to suppress human rights, keep people under a totalitarian thumb and stifle economic growth,” Miami state Rep. Javier Fernandez told Politico in June.

[End]

Ok, so, she’s a fan of Scientology and Fidel Castro. Sounds like a standard-issue California Democrat to me. Again, what’s the big deal?

Meanwhile, in Lori Lightfoot’s utopia of Chicago… – Speaking of communist Democrats, things are going just great by communist Democrat standards in Chicago, where Lori Lightfoot’s consistent hamstringing of the Chicago PD led to a 139% increase in murders in July as compared to just a year ago.

From a report at Breitbart:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago witnessed a 139 percent increase in murder during July 2020 when compared to July 2019.

ABC7 reported there were 105 murders in July 2020, up from “the 44 reported in July 2019.”

Moreover, there were 406 “shooting incidents” in Chicago during the month of July 2020, an increase of 75 percent “from the 232 last July,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Over a longer span of time, murders were up 51 percent from January 1, 2020, through July 31, 2020, compared to murders for the same period of time in 2019, according to the Sun-Times.

Lightfoot blamed Chicago mayhem and bloodshed on gun friendly states during a July 26, 2020, appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

[End]

Oh, yeah, it’s all because of those evil guns coming in from [checks notes] Indiana and Iowa.

Holy crap.

Hey, wonder what tipped him off? – Honestly, there are days I get so depressed reading stories like this one that I just want to slit my wrists. It’s just surreal:

For the record, I’ve been telling you this since sometime in early April. This perverse incentive is in fact the main driver of the radically inflated counts of new COVID-19 “cases” in states like Texas and Florida.

But the head of the Centers for Disease Control has just now, at the first of August, figured it all out. You seriously could never make this stuff up, folks.

If you don’t believe me, how about trusting a doctor? – This video posted on Facebook by Florida Doctor Darrel Morris tells you all you need to know about the massive fraud being perpetrated by the medical community and media. In the course of this video, Dr. Morris also exposes the media lies about Hydroxychloroquine and its ability to cure COVID-19.

Watch it – it will be the best 3 minutes you spend today:

 

The Democrats are completely panicked at the prospect of Joe Biden debating Donald Trump. – And really, who can blame them? After all, Biden has a hard time putting together complete sentences and doesn’t seem to know where he is much of the time.

Thus, the emerging Democrat scheme is to concoct a rationale by which Biden will refuse to debate the President, and we have seen op/eds written along these lines in recent weeks by various Democrat toadies like Paul Krugman. Yesterday, former Obama press secretary Joe Lockhart got into the act.

From a report at Newsweek:

Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump’s publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016. Meanwhile Biden backers, including some conservatives, applauded the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan for cancelling their scheduled debates over COVID-19 concerns.

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, “whatever you do, don’t debate Trump.” Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn’t be given another platform which will enable him to “repeat lies,” which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton.

“We saw in the debates in 2016 Hillary Clinton showed a mastery of the issues, every point she made was more honest and bested Trump,” Lockhart told CNN. “But Trump came out of the debates doing better I think because he just kept repeating the same old lies: ‘we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it,’ ‘we’re going to keep all those Mexican rapists out of the country,’ and ‘we’re going to make great trade deals’ — none of these things have come to pass.”

“Giving him that national forum to continue to spout — get him to 21,000 or 22,000 lies — I think just isn’t worth it for the Democrats or for Biden,” Lockhart continued.

[End]

Write this down: You will never see Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden on a debate stage with President Donald Trump. This campaign to cancel the debates being jointly mounted by the Democrats and their media toadies will only intensify in the weeks to come.

That is all.
