Thursday News Roundup: Newsom Exposed and Cuomo Goes Completely off the Rails

Another big reversal in Wayne County, Michigan. – I discuss the latest reversal by the GOP members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers elsewhere today. It’s potentially a big deal for a variety of reasons.

Hey, that’s totally believable. – A local TV station in Fulton County, Georgia reported yesterday that one precinct in Atlanta a reported turnout that was 3300% above the number of registered voters living there.

From our Department of Futile Gestures….

God Bless Jim Jordan, but even if San Fran Nan were inclined to worry about election integrity (she isn’t), she’d just put Pencil Neck Adam Schiff in charge of any such investigation so it could be falsified and buried. The House of Representatives has no productive role to play here.

Bring them all home, Mr. President. – Now that he has some loyal people installed at the Pentagon, President Trump is using what could become the final months of his presidency to bring America’s men and women back home from the senseless Middle East and North African wars his predecessors got them involved in over the past 32 years. After announcing such moves related to the 19 year war in Afghanistan and the 18 year war in Iraq, the President is now reportedly preparing to bring most of our people home from the festering hellhole that is Somalia.

From a report at Reuters:

President Donald Trump may withdraw nearly all U.S. troops from Somalia as part of a global pullback that includes reductions of forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said nothing had been finalized and that no orders for Somalia have been received by the U.S. military. But there appeared to be a growing expectation that drawdown orders would be coming soon.

The Pentagon on Tuesday announced that Trump will reduce U.S. forces in Afghanistan from 4,500 to 2,500 by Jan. 15, just five days before his term ends, and cut U.S. forces in Iraq by 500 to the same level.

The United States has about 700 troops in Somalia focused on helping local forces defeat the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab insurgency. The mission receives little attention in the United States but is considered a cornerstone of the Pentagon’s global efforts to combat al Qaeda.

Trump’s newly-installed acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller, a former Green Beret and counterterrorism official, is taking a hard look at Somalia and could opt for keeping a minimal presence there and stop relying on large deployments to combat al Shabaab.

[End]

If President Trump really wants to take this global, he should look at getting our remaining forces out of freaking Germany, where America has spent the last 75 years defending the country that started two World Wars from an “enemy” – the Soviet Union – that has not even existed for 30 long years now. Now, that would be a wonderful thing.

Cuomo goes completely off the rails. – Governor Andrew Cuomo held one of his Fidel Castro-like press events yesterday, ostensibly designed to provide the public with useful information and comfort about the draconian new shut-down restrictions he is imposing on them yet again.

Instead, the Central American dictator-in-training went completely off the rails, blaming his citizens for the problems with the China Virus, and haranguing one reporter who simply asked whether or not the state’s schools would be shut down.

Here are a couple of examples:

But Cuomo’s not the only despot-in-training. – Indeed, from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to Michigan to Nevada to California, the nation is filled to the gills with communist Democrat governors who are just itching for the chance to move to Honduras or Nicaragua and spend their lives issuing edicts depriving the masses of any human rights at all.

In California, Gavin Newsom continues to do his best imitation of Castro’s predecessor, the pompous and arrogant Fulgencio Batista, imposing dramatic restrictions on the masses while flaunting them in public. In the latest example of Newsom’s boundless hubris, he imposed new restrictions on the state’s restaurants and on Thanksgiving gatherings, then flew up to Napa for a ritzy, maskless, non-social distanced dinner at the fabulous French Laundry restaurant with a couple dozen of the state’s elite in celebration of some lobbyist’s birthday.

Photos show CA Gov Gavin Newsom without a mask at dinner | The Sacramento Bee

Astonishingly, two of the guests at the dinner were California Medical Assocation CEO Dustin Corcoran and CMA’s lobbyist Janus Norman.

You seriously could never make this stuff up in a million gazillion years, folks.

From a story at Politico:

California Medical Association officials were among the guests seated next to Gov. Gavin Newsom at a top California political operative’s opulent birthday dinner at the French Laundry restaurant this month.

CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman both joined the dinner at the French Laundry, an elite Napa fine dining restaurant, to celebrate the 50th birthday of lobbyist and longtime Newsom adviser Jason Kinney, a representative of the powerful interest group confirmed Wednesday morning.

Both Norman and Corcoran are friends of Kinney, as is Newsom, who referred this week to his 20-year friendship with Kinney. In a photo obtained by Fox LA, Norman is clearly visible seated to Newsom’s left.

The presence of CMA brass could amplify criticisms of the dinner occurring despite coronavirus restrictions that have limited Californians’ movements and constrained businesses. While Newsom and Kinney’s lobbying firm have said the meal abided by public health rules, it has struck a chord with Californians who have assailed the upscale soiree as hypocritical as coronavirus cases surge.

The state has issued guidelines prohibiting more than three households from gathering privately — a limit clearly exceeded by the French Laundry dinner. However, the state has intentionally allowed restaurants to seat people from more than three households together.

[End]

Oh. I would feel sympathy for California’s masses, but hey, they voted for this jackass in overwhelming numbers. Or at least the state’s Democrat election officials told them they did.

Think about it.

Finally, if you think that mask is protecting you or anyone else, think again. – Check out the results of this massive Danish study on the efficacy of masks:

Friday News Roundup: China Virus Propaganda and Democrat Election Fraud Proof Abounds

With Quid Pro China Joe and his fake Office of the President-elect now advocating a 6-week lockdown and shutdown of the entire U.S. economy, this seems a great time to remind everyone that today is Day 242 of Anthony Fauci’s “15 Days to Flatten the Curve” strategy implemented last March.

Yeah, let’s double down on that fiasco.

Today, we are being told that a national “mask mandate” would save 100,000 lives or more, not just by Biden people, but by Fauci and the snakes at the CDC. But my home state of Texas has been living under a mask mandate for the last five months, yet the number of new “cases” – a fake term with a constantly-shifting definition – has skyrocketed in recent weeks. The same story is true in many other states around the country.

Thus, what we are really being told by these corrupt puppets is that an utterly-failed strategy that has been in place for months will suddenly become successful and life-saving if only we make it a national mandate.

This is an utter, complete and blatantly transparent lie, just like pretty much everything else we have been told about this viral gift from China.

How reliable are those COVID tests? – Don’t ask me, ask Elon Musk:

Oh.

Meanwhile, Fredo’s big brother Andrew Cuomo comes out with this bit of propaganda, conveniently timed to support the Democrat Party’s effort to shut down Thanksgiving:

If you believe a word of this, you are a huge part of the problem in America today. Stop falling for Nazi-style propaganda, which is ALL THIS IS.

The only true things we have been told about this virus by government officials are:

– The virus is real;

– The virus is deadly;

– The virus is especially dangerous to certain specific groups of people in our society;

– The virus is not dangerous at all to about 90% of Americans;

Everything else we have been told, every “remedy” suggested by the Faucis and Birx’s of the world, has been nothing but Nazi-style propaganda aimed at implementing mass population control by despotic government authorities.

This will all only get worse in a Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration.

God help us.

You want prima facia proof of massive voter fraud committed by Democrats?  – Take a look at this statistic from Georgia: In that state, right at 283,000 ballots only contained votes for the presidential race. Of that huge number of ballots, 99.993% were cast for Joe Biden.

That is a statistical impossibility, no more probable than the huge ballot dumps in Michigan and Wisconsin of 6,000 or 23,000 or 138,000 ballots ALL marked for Biden. The odds of any of these outcomes happening in the real world are in the trillions to 1 against their being legitimate.

In their recount and audit, Georgia officials should pay special attention to those 283,000 ballots.

This was not the victory you may think it was…yet. – In Pennsylvania, a state judge ruled in favor of the Trump campaign that Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar illegally extended the election deadline, but only related to one specific manner.

From a report at JustTheNews:

A Pennsylvania judge on Thursday ruled in favor of the Trump campaign, ordering that state election officials cannot count ballots that were cast provisionally by voters who did not have proof of identification and then subsequently failed to provide ID by Nov. 9.

Existing Pennsylvania law states voters have until six days after the election – in this case Nov. 9 – to “cure” problems with a ballot, including a lack of identification.

But just weeks before the election, the state’s Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted up to three days after Election Day, or through Nov. 6. By then Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar – just two days before Election Day –announced that proof of ID could be provided up until Nov. 12.

The state judge ruled that Boockvar “lacked statutory authority” to make such a ruling.

[End]

Note that this specific decision will only impact a few thousand ballots.

Some blogs and fake news sites falsely reported that this decision means that all mail-in ballots postmarked within three days after Election Day would have to be tossed out, but it does not address that issue at all. That postmark deadline extension – in direct opposition to state law – was implemented via judicial fiat by the PA State Supreme Court, not by Boockvar.

The Trump Campaign has filed a separate lawsuit challenging that ruling, and that suit will almost certainly end up being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. As a result of an earlier suit challenging that ruling, Boockvar and PA election officials were ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court to segregate all such ballots pending the election results and an ultimate decision on that legal question.

In a state in which Biden currently “leads” by 54,000 votes, there are reportedly several hundred thousand such ballots that stand at risk in this particular lawsuit, virtually all of which were ostensibly “cast” for Joe Biden. Obviously, the Supreme Court decision in this case could end up being decisive.

Are you really sure it is “muscle” she is applying? – I just want to congratulate whomever it is that runs the Twitter feed for @TheHill for coming up with this particular characterization of nature of the…ummmm…heft Stacy Abrams is applying to her voter fraud efforts in Georgia:

No, it doesn’t seem like “muscle” is at play here at all.

Our Leftist Dimwit of the Week award goes to this gal:

Where in the hell was this woman hiding throughout the general election, during which both Biden and Kamala Harris repeatedly promised to shut everything down on the pretense that it would somehow help with the China Virus? Good lord – how does this pathetic wretch get her socks on every morning? Does she even wear socks? Who cooks her meals and brushes her teeth for her?

Truly, it is absolutely impossible to underestimate the intelligence of the average leftist.

BREAKING: Biden’s Chief of Staff agrees that elections are rigged. – Great catch by Jordan Davidson at The Federalist yesterday:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s new chief of staff pick claimed publicly that U.S. elections are rigged.

In 2014, Ronald Klain publicly replied in agreement with a tweet by Vox advertising an article headlined “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” “That’s because they are,” he responded.

Klain’s comments echo Trump supporters and Republicans’ concerns about election integrity in the most recent election. Contrary to the narrative pushed by the left’s communications arm, the legacy media, fraud and election violations have been discovered in several key states including GeorgiaPennsylvaniaNevada, and Michigan. Some of this fraud has allegedly concerned tens of thousands of votes.

[End]

Wednesday News Roundup: Sadly, Christopher Wray is Not Resigning and Trump Lashes out at William Barr

Will MSNBC and CNN correctly call this a “peaceful protest”? – Because that’s what happened in New York City last night as the latest anti-Jew Covid-19 edicts issued by Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo resulted in hundreds of Jewish citizens there taking to the streets to protest:

The crowd assembled after Governor Cuomo singled out the city’s Jewish community at a press conference, threatening them that he would “shut down the synagogues” if they don’t get in line with his and Herr de Blasio’s (real name: Warren Wilhelm) new restrictions on crowd size at public facilities. The gathering took place in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, which, as I pointed out a couple of days ago, is one of the city’s traditionally Jewish areas.

The new restrictions and business shut-downs go into place on Friday, although Herr Wilhelm said late in the day that his people will start enforcing some of them Thursday evening.

This is America, 2020.

When Twitter becomes the best tool available for communicating the truth. – After Michelle Obama put out a heinously slanderous video smearing President Donald Trump and claiming that the BLM riots are actually “peaceful” events, twitter user Tim Young created this handy side-by-side mashup of the former First Lady speaking while her BLM pals burned several cities to the ground:

I’ve been writing about politics for 34 years now, and have always done my best to avoid commenting negatively about First Ladies. But Michelle Obama is just an utterly shameless and shameful human being.

Speaking of shameless and shameful BLM lovers… – Television ratings for the BLMBA finals have fallen off the proverbial cliff this season, after the national thug league went in whole-hog to associate itself with the violent, Marxist terrorist group.

From a report at Outkick.com:

The Lakers-Heat 2020 NBA Finals have been a disaster.

Game 3 failed to reach even 6 million viewers, according to ShowBuzzDaily. It is the least-watched NBA Finals game on record.

Each game has broken another all-time low. Game 1 recorded the lowest Finals opener ever, at 7.41 million. Game 2 set another new low of 6.6 million viewers,* a record that lasted only two days.

Viewership for Game 3 is down an unprecedented 58% from last year’s Finals, which featured a team from Canada.

With a marquee match-up between the Lakers and the Heat and the league’s biggest draw in LeBron James, a drop of almost 60% is inexcusable.

The NBA decision to embrace far-left propaganda is the leading cause for the historic declines in viewership.

[End]

It’s not exactly a case of “get woke, go broke” just yet, since this current batch of BLMBA players have already been made fabulously wealthy by the country they all hate so much. But these plummeting ratings are kryptonite to the team owners, and will make the upcoming negotiations over the league’s next TV contracts extremely interesting.

If nobody’s watching, ain’t nobody gonna be willing to pay them bills.

Don’t get too excited about this… – Rumors are flying this morning that FBI Director Christopher Wray is going to resign today, which would be a blessed event for the Republic. But that’s highly unlikely, as this worthless apparatchik cherishes nothing more than a steady, if highly-inflated, paycheck. He won’t be giving that up easily.

The rumors started after the glorified HR director called a press conference for this morning:

Far from being a resignation event, there’s about a 98% chance that Wray will use this appearance before a fawning press corps as another opportunity to recite DNC-written talking points about illusory Russian interference in the elections and fantasies about “white supremacist groups” being the real cause of all the Democrat-sponsored riots that have taken place since on a daily basis since June. It’s all entirely predictable and not even worth your time to watch.

Nothing to see here – move along.

Not much to see here, either. – President Trump set Twitter all a-twitter last night with this missive:

Twitter’s users on both ends of the political spectrum went wild, and all the Usual Suspect fake news outlets treated the tweet as if it was actual news. The trouble is, the President issued the exact same order a year and a half ago, giving Attorney General “full authority” to declassify every Obamagate-related document.

What has Barr done with that authority? The correct answer is “as close to nothing as humanly possible.” Indeed, were it not for the stellar efforts of Ric Grenell and current Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, virtually zero declassification of key documents would have occurred since that time.

Someone must have reminded the President of his prior order, because a couple of hours later, he tweeted this:

Hilariously, just a little bit later, he also re-tweeted this missive directed at Barr:

The truth is that it is all far too little, far too late, and none of it will matter unless President prevails on November 3.

Here is NBC News, perpetrating yet another fraud on the American public. – When one political party owns the news media, here is the kind of stuff that happens. As I mentioned yesterday, NBC awarded the Biden/Harris campaign with a $50 million campaign gift of free air time Monday night in the form of a “town hall” meeting in which the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate was questioned by supposedly “undecided” voters.

Of course, as would have been the case on CNN or CBS or ABC or probably even Fox News at this point, none of the voters were “undecided” at all.

From a story at the New York Post:

Two “undecided” voters who appeared on an NBC News town hall with Joe Biden that has been described as an “infomercial” for the Democratic nominee had earlier voiced their support for the former vice president on MSNBC, according to a report.

Peter Gonzalez and Ismael Llano posed questions to the Democratic presidential nominee at the town hall Monday in Miami as part of an “audience of undecided Florida voters.”

Both Gonzalez and Llano appeared on MSNBC in August to show their support for Biden, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Tuesday.

“If we get four more years of Trump, good luck, and good luck with the future attracting younger voters,” Gonzalez said on MSNBC.

He and Llano were identified as “voting for Biden.”

“Something that Joe Biden said during his speech that resonated with me was what defines America is a possibility,” Llano said in the same broadcast.

At the town hall, NBC News’ anchor Lester Holt said Llano “voted for Hillary Clinton four years ago but has voted Republican in the past.”

[End]

Tuesday News Roundup: AP Slams Cuomo and the Portland Riots Expand Again

The purge continues in Seattle. – The lone bright spot in Seattle’s city government, Police Chief Carmen Best, resigned yesterday, giving the communist Democrats on the city council and in the mayor’s office a victory as they consolidate their efforts to completely destroy that city.

Sadly, probably to preserve her pension, Chief Best  thanked worthless communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan for “her continuous support.” Best and Durkan clashed repeatedly during the June riots and the six-week-long CHAZ/CHOP atrocity, as Durkan steadfastly refused to allow the police department to use all the tools at its disposal to protect the citizens of the city.

Durkan and her fellow communist Democrats will now have the opportunity to hire a fellow Soros-funded lunatic to help them finish killing off the city’s police department. If you live in Seattle and have the means to move away from it, the time to do so is now.

When did Preacher Pete become a woman of color? – Imagine my surprise to get up this morning and see Pete Buttigeig trending on Twitter. We haven’t seen or heard from the former South Bend mayor in many weeks, since his Quixotic pursuit of the Democrat nomination came to an unceremonious end.

But suddenly, there he is, trending on Twitter amid speculation that his name has somehow made its way onto the list of possible running mates for Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee. Not that it would be surprising if Biden’s handlers decided to shift away from that promise that their addled candidate rashly made several months ago, given the fact that every one of the “women of color” we have seen vetted thus far would immediately become dead weight to the campaign.

But Preacher Pete? A pasty-white, 30-something gay guy from South Bend, where he is detested by the city’s Black community? That would be a radical shift, indeed.

But hey, it’s probably not about the VEEP slot at all. We should remember that while he was out making rash promises, Biden promised Mayor Pete a prominent role in his administration should he win the election. Biden will be announcing a proposed cabinet soon, and don’t be surprised if Preacher Pete’s name is penciled in as Secretary of State or Defense.

No, I’m not kidding.

Watch as President Trump, at his presser yesterday, lays out a laundry list of those known to be involved in the Obamagate scandal, including Susan Rice, who he refers to as a “potential liability” as a running mate for Biden:

Historic stuff.

Speaking of historic stuff, the President was rushed out of that press briefing earlier after a shooting took place outside of the White House grounds:

After he came back in, one idiot reporter asked him if he was “shaken” by the incident.

Trump responded: “Do I look shaken to you?” and then changed the subject to the booming stock market. Because that’s what a boss does.

Hilarious.

Holy cow, a random act of actual journalism just happened at the Associated Press! – I’m not kidding, y’all. Somehow, the Democrat toady editors at AP failed to catch an actual report about how Andrew Cuomo’s government is severely under-counting the number of elderly folks his policies have managed to kill in that state’s nursing home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the AP story:

New York’s true nursing home death toll cloaked in secrecy

NEW YORK (AP) — Riverdale Nursing Home in the Bronx appears, on paper, to have escaped the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, with an official state count of just four deaths in its 146-bed facility.

The truth, according to the home, is far worse: 21 dead, most transported to hospitals before they succumbed.

“It was a cascading effect,” administrator Emil Fuzayov recalled. “One after the other.”

New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.

That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600. But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.

“That’s a problem, bro,” state Sen. Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, told New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker during a legislative hearing on nursing homes earlier this month. “It seems, sir, that in this case you are choosing to define it differently so that you can look better.”

How big a difference could it make? Since May, federal regulators have required nursing homes to submit data on coronavirus deaths each week, whether or not residents died in the facility or at a hospital. Because the requirement came after the height of New York’s outbreak, the available data is relatively small. According to the federal data, roughly a fifth of the state’s homes reported resident deaths from early June to mid July — a tally of 323 dead, 65 percent higher than the state’s count of 195 during that time period.

[End]

Make no mistake about it: Cuomo’s policy decisions led directly to the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers since March. And he knew that would be the result when the made the choices. He is very likely the single most prolific mass murderer in American history.

Given the corrupt news media’s massive campaign to cover for the Governor in hopes he might replace Biden at the party’s convention next week, it is frankly stunning that the AP would run this actual piece of real journalism now. It could only happen if the AP editors got a signal from the DNC that the Cuomo boomlet is over.

For the Democrats, it now appears that it will be Biden or bust in 2020. You should bet on bust.

 

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – More fun and games last night as the communist Democrat-sponsored rioters expanded their stage of operations again, this time to include the city’s North Police Precinct Building in its attacks:

And the revolving door of communist Portland-style “justice” continues to send the arrested rioters right back onto the streets to riot some more:

And so it goes. It’s becoming repetitive, but it must be said again: This rioting will continue to become increasingly violent and keep spreading throughout the city until someone outside of the communist Democrat Party – which sponsors and pays for the riots – steps in to stop them.

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.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Biden Goes Berserk, Portland Riots Mount, de Blasio Goes Full-on Nazi

Here is an angry old white man exercising his white privilege and verbally assaulting a Black reporter who is just trying to do his job. – That’s how the corrupt hacks at CNN and the New York Times would describe the video below if it involved a Republican.

But hey, it’s Joe Biden, so the only thing that gets reported out of this incident is that Biden was trying to “clarify” the fact that he has not ever taken a cognitive test despite his claim a couple of weeks back that he is “tested all the time.”

Here’s the clip:

You could never make this stuff up, folks.

Oh, but it gets better. – Here is the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee explaining how he would deal with China if he wins the election:

If that doesn’t give you a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, nothing will.

This is happening in Australia. Not Russia. Not China. Not Venezuela. Australia. – It will eventually happen in the United States if we, the people don’t make this madness stop. Watch this video featuring Katie Hopkins and realize that this is nothing more than the logical conclusion of where Democrat governors – an a few Republicans, too  – want to take us:

An entire major city, locked in their homes, unable to travel more than 5 km, unable to go to the grocery store with anyone else including their children, all schools and child care centers closed, all non-essential businesses closed, everything shut down for six solid weeks due to the deaths of 7 elderly patients, all of whom were over the age of 70 and some of whom probably did not die to to COVID-19.

If you think this cannot happen in America, you just have not been paying close enough attention to what has already been happening.

For example, here is what communist Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti is now doing in Los Angeles with the full approval of communist Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom:

But it gets even worse in New York City. – Andrew Cuomo, the ghoul Governor of New York who is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers in the state’s nursing homes, has been bragging for weeks now about how the worst of the viral gift from China is over for his state.

Ok, fine. But if that’s the case, why is the Big Doofus, New York City’s communist Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, implementing Nazi-style check points at which his cops are wasting their time checking the papers of everyone entering and exiting the city?

From a report at NBC4 New York:

Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City would start implementing checkpoints across the five boroughs to help enforce Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s quarantine order for travelers from viral hotspots, citing the ongoing national COVID threat.

The measure announced Wednesday is the first significant effort by New York City specifically to help enforce the 14-day quarantine for travelers from 34 states and Puerto Rico. In revealing it, de Blasio said the state was “absolutely right” to impose the travel restriction in the first place. Cuomo announced it in late June.

The governor has said the quarantine itself is imperfect and Mayor de Blasio admitted New York City’s new enforcement plan has some caveats as well. But the idea, the mayor said, is to send a strong message to people coming in.

“The checkpoints are going to send a very powerful message that this quarantine is serious. Even if we can’t reach every single person I think it’ll get the message across,” de Blasio said. “We don’t want to penalize people. We want to educate them, make sure they’re following the rules.

[End]

Thus, the descendants of thousands of Holocaust survivors who still live in New York City are getting a real-life taste of the kinds of crackdowns their ancestors experienced. Right here in America, where their descendants fled after the War.

Surreal.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, the “peaceful protesters” continued their efforts to destroy Portland. – Hey, at least the police are now being allowed to use tear gas. In Democrat-run cities in America today, that is what we call “progress.”

The intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo is as always on the ground getting the truth out while the corrupt corporate media continues to lie about it. As usual, the riots were still ongoing as I began to compile this piece at 5:30 CT. Here are some highlights of the hijinks and shenanigans these “peaceful” kids were engaged in:

Hey, at least they’re attacking a local police precinct instead of the federal courthouse now.

So, you might be wondering how the leadership of communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and his fellow communist Democrats on the city council is working out for the people of the city in terms of violent crime. Well, Mr. Ngo is on top of that, too.

Check this out:

So, just like New York City; just like Chicago; just like Minneapolis; just like Seattle. All Democrat cities run by communist Democrat Mayors and city councils dominated by communist Democrats.

There’s a pattern here, folks, and it isn’t hard to detect. Well, unless you’re a Democrat or a corrupt reporter, that is.

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.

Friday News Roundup: Adios Amy!, Trump Moves on Big Tech, and CoronaPanic is Dying

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

You won’t have Klobuchar to kick around anymore. – The gang of leftist women who make up Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Farty Joe Biden’s list of potential vice presidential nominees just keep knocking themselves off.  Frau Eva von Whitmer was basically eliminated by her own husband last weekend when he tried to jump the line to get his boat out of storage, in direct violation of Whitmer’s own stupid stay-at-home order.

Now, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has fallen victim to her own actions, or inaction, as it were. That inaction took place wayyyyyy back in 2006, when Klobuchar, then serving as the local District Attorney for the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, refused to bring charges against a bad cop named Derek Chauvin, who had become the subject of one of multiple police brutality complaints that have been leveled against him over the years.

Why is that significant today? Because Derek Chauvin is the bad cop who killed George Floyd by leaning on his neck for 8 long minutes as he strangled to death on a Minneapolis street.

Oh.

Adios, Amy!

Time to get back to work. – There was some very good, if hidden, news in the weekly jobs numbers released on Thursday. Yes, we had 2.1 “initial” claims for unemployment in the past week, which was the only number the corrupt news media focused on.

But “continuing” claims fell for the first time since March, from 25 million to 21 million. That means that 4 million net Americans went back to work last week.

America is going back to work whether the Democrats want it to or not.

The other positive, if largely ignored news this week has been the Dow Jones Industrial average leaping back above the 25,000 mark. As of yesterday’s close, the Dow has now gained back about 80% of its initial losses due to the economic shutdown, signaling that investors are growing increasingly confident that a rapid economic rebound will take place in the months to come.

 

This is just the first step. – As promised, President Donald Trump signed an executive order designed to limit the liability protections enjoyed under the Communications Decency Act by big social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Make no mistake about it, this is just the first step the administration plans to take to rein in the abusive behavior in the social media sector.

These Big Tech monopolies have far too much influence in our society today, and pretty much all of that influence is pernicious and destructive in nature. There are now bi-partisan coalitions in both the House and Senate who support some form of anti-trust regulation of these companies, and we have seen many signs that the Department of Justice is preparing to take action against them.

This is far, far from over. It’s just the beginning.

The CoronaPanic mob is losing control, even in California. – The sheriff of Sonoma County, California, said yesterday that he will no longer enforce baseless, senseless, constitution-violating orders coming from state and local officials.

From a report by ABC News:

Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick penned a letter to residents saying he is directing his department to not enforce the public health order, saying the blanket order is crushing the community.

In this letter, Essick said the many residents and business owners have told him that the county’s health orders are far more strict than neighboring communities and California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s statewide orders. He also said that the county’s coronavirus cases continue to decline.

“Over the last 10 weeks we have learned a lot and made significant progress. The curve has been flattened; hospitals were not overrun with patients; we have dramatically increased testing which verified the infection rate in Sonoma County is under control and decreasing. Yet we continue to see successive Public Health Orders that contain inconsistent restrictions on business and personal activities without explanation,” Essick wrote. “Based on what we have learned, now is the time to move to a risk-based system and move beyond blanket orders that are crushing our community.”

He says he’s asked, and not heard from, public health officials about why the restrictive measures remain despite the community having favorable COVID-19 numbers. To continue to enforce these measures, he said, would be a disservice to the county’s residents.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, he said, will stop enforcing local coronavirus regulations as of June 1.

“As your elected Sheriff, I can no longer in good conscience continue to enforce Sonoma County Public Health Orders, without explanation, that criminalize otherwise lawful business and personal behavior,” Essick’s letter said.

[End]

Sonoma County, of course, is one of the major wine-producing areas in the state. Essick’s move will no doubt place pressure on the sheriff in neighboring Napa County to also begin questioning the authority behind these counterproductive orders. You can be sure that if the wine-tasting rooms in Sonoma are able to open for business, those in Napa Valley are going to want an explanation why they can’t do the same.

Because competition still matters, even in the grand socialist experiment that is California today…

…but maybe not in New York. – Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio appear intent upon completely destroying New York’s economy for decades to come. Cuomo, who has led what has likely been the least-effective and most disastrous response to the Wuhan Virus of any state, doubled-down on restriction and failure yesterday:

Surreal.

Meanwhile, this is happening. – Although you won’t find it mentioned on ABC’s website or Twitter feed, ABC reporter Arielle Mitropolis reported this on-air yesterday:

The CoronaPanic is dying at the hands of science and data, and there is nothing Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Whitmer or any other fascist Democrat governor can do to stop it.

That is all.

Pew Research Center Report Shows Danger of Living in Democrat-Controlled Areas

The Evening Campaign Update

Living in a Democrat congressional district can be very hazardous to your health. That has to be the main takeaway from a report issued on Tuesday by the Pew Research Center.

The report, titled “Coronavirus death toll is heavily concentrated in Democratic congressional districts,” demonstrates that “Of the 44 hardest-hit congressional districts – the top 10% in terms of deaths – 41 are represented by Democrats, while three are represented by Republicans.” Pew’s researchers also found that “nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress.”

This is stunning data, but it should surprise no one. It is completely in line with the map below, compiled late last week by USAFACTS.org:

The data underlying this map illustrated that roughly 1/3rd of all U.S. Wuhan Virus deaths have taken place in each of the green, yellow and red areas. In other words, fully 2/3rds of all deaths have occurred in large cities and metro areas in the northeast and midwest. All of those areas are dominated by Democrat politicians. These are areas like New York City, Newark, Boston, Chicago and Detroit, where people are packed in more closely together and in which thousands continued to ride public transportation petri dishes to and from work throughout this viral outbreak, thanks to failed leadership by their governors and mayors.

Let’s also remember that it wasn’t Republican politicians who made the ghoulish decisions to send infected seniors back into their nursing homes where they infected thousands more. Those decisions were the exclusive province of Democrats like Andrew Cuomo and Phil Murphy and J.B. Pritzker and Gretchen Whitmer.

Desperate to find some solace in the stark reality of this Pew report, the leftist perpetual outrage crowd on Twitter tried and failed to make some hay out of this chart earlier today:

Obviously, when 80% of the deaths take place in your party’s districts in the first place, those districts are going to see a more rapid decline rate once the epidemic starts to fade. This isn’t exactly rocket science here, folks. The numbers are what they are, and to their credit, the liberals who run the Pew Center didn’t make much effort to cover for their fellow Democrats in this report.

That is all.
