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.Bass, who is widely reported to be on Biden’s shortlist, responded Saturday to recently-emerged video that showed her speaking at a Church of Scientology opening in 2010. The organization has been accused of acting like a cult.
“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.
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.
Oh, yeah, it’s all because of those evil guns coming in from [checks notes] Indiana and Iowa.
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:
U.S. hospitals have a “perverse” monetary “incentive” to increase their count of coronavirus fatalities, the CDC chief suggests. https://t.co/nMBRRxIu0P

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.
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.
