Monday News Roundup: The Biden Debt Bill Passes the Senate as Harry and Meghan Whine to Oprah

This seems to pretty well sum up the essence of the Oprah Winfrey interview with Prince Harry the Meager:

Or perhaps this:

Oh, by the way, President Donald Trump predicted Harry’s future life a couple of years ago when this creepy, attention-mad couple detached themselves from the Royal Family:

Ok, now, understand this: This interview featured a thoroughly untalented and extremely wealthy Hollywood actress and a human mediocrity who happened to be born into massive wealth and privilege whining to a billionaire TV personality about how terrible their lives together are. And somehow in our utterly perverse popular culture here in America, they are by and large considered to be “victims.”

Holy crap.

But enough about this pair of whiney clowns.

Time to re-think that shopping trip to Bath and Body Works:

This is what happens when a completely ineffective “health” measure becomes a deity to a rapidly growing religious cult.

Oh, hey, you remember that Biden Gas Premium? – Yeah, it’s about to go higher, after Houthi rebels backed by – guess who? – Iran staged another attack on Saudi oil facilities on Sunday.

From the story at Marketwatch:

Warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition dropped bombs on Yemen’s rebel-held capital Sanaa on Sunday, following attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil and military facilities. The coalition blamed the administration of President Joe Biden for the attacks by Iran-backed Houthi rebels after a decision to remove them from U.S. terror lists.

“Possible damage at Ras Tanura in particular is generating concern on the oil market, as this is home to Saudi Arabia’s biggest oil storage facility and oil export terminal,” said Eugen Weinberg, head of commodity research at Commerzbank, in a note to clients.

“The news fell on fertile ground as Brent had already increased to $70 per barrel on Friday,” due to OPEC’s surprise move to not step up production for now, said Weinberg.

“It seems that OPEC is focusing on price control at present, and that it wants to completely eradicate any surplus stock by the autumn in readiness for the possible return to the market of Iranian oil exports in the event that agreement is reached with the U.S. on the nuclear dispute,” he added.

[End]

The Biden Gas Premium voted into your lives by your Democrat “friends” currently stands at about $.58 per gallon since Election Day. You should expect it to approach $.70 per gallon by the end of this month, and then you’ll be able to watch it rise to a dollar or so as summer driving season approaches, and refiners are forced to change over to making the more expensive summer blends in the coming weeks by the EPA.

Remember, Democrats, no whining at the gas station. You voted for this.

Meanwhile, here is what your friendly BLM/Antifa terrorists were doing in Louisville, Kentucky over the weekend:

Amazingly, the Louisville police actually showed up and arrested some of the thugs who were assaulting teen and pre-teen girls and boys participating in a cheerleading competition.

I’ve never been a fan of open carry laws, and this is why. Police should not be faced with domestic terrorists carrying AR-15s on a sling. Neither should 10 year-old cheerleaders.

The $1.9 trillion Biden Debt Building Bill passed the senate over the weekend, and it essentially destroys the value of work as a foundational principle of our country. – As the Wall Street Journal editorial board points out in a new editorial, the bill effectively establishes a guaranteed federal income that is “unlinked to work.” Among other elements, the bill extends enhanced unemployment benefits through the end of September, enhances the child care credit and earned income credit and sends a $1400 check to individuals with incomes of up to $75,000 ($2,800 for couples with $150,000 income) plus $1,400 per dependent.

Oh, and best of all for the layabout class: Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and other prominent Democrats are promising to immediately start working on another massive payoff bill to replace this one come October.

Here’s an excerpt from the Wall Street Journal piece:

• The bill sends another $1,400 to individuals earning up to $75,000 ($2,800 for couples with $150,000 income) plus $1,400 per dependent including kids in college. This follows the $1,200 for individuals and $500 per dependent in the Cares Act and $600 for each in the December relief bill. In total, most non-affluent families of four will get $11,400 in direct payments.

Republicans pushed to lower the individual income threshold to $50,000, which is about as much as the average production-level worker makes. But Democrats refused because it would exclude many government workers, especially those in blue states with higher salaries. Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden wants to put these payments on autopilot so they don’t lapse until unemployment falls below a certain level.

• Households will also get a $3,600 fully refundable tax credit for each child under age 6 and $3,000 for those up to age 17. The current $2,000 child tax credit is only partly refundable, meaning people who pay little or no taxes don’t receive the full benefit. But now people could collect more from the child tax credit than they pay in taxes and even earn in wages.

• Parents would also benefit from a larger and fully refundable dependent care tax credit. The bill boosts the maximum tax credit to $4,000 for one child and $8,000 for two or more from $1,050 and $2,100, respectively. Since teachers unions have kept thousands of schools closed, Democrats now want to make it up to parents by paying their child care expenses.

• Health insurance plans on the ObamaCare exchanges have long been unattractive for those who earn too much to qualify for premium subsidies and young adults with low health expenses. The bill tries to lure more people to the exchanges by sweetening subsidies through 2022, and Democrats will vote to make them permanent in the midterm election year.

Households making above 400% of the poverty line—$106,000 for a family of four—would qualify for subsidies with their premiums capped at 8.5% of their income. Premium subsidies for lower-income households would also increase on a sliding scale. Most unemployed wouldn’t have to pay a penny toward their premiums, which will be another disincentive to return to work.

• Democrats are also turning the earned income tax credit (EITC) into an unearned income tax credit. The EITC was originally intended to increase the incentive for lower earners to work, but complicated rules have turned it into one more income transfer. Now Democrats are making it so that even the unemployed can get the credit.

Individuals next year will be able to use their 2019 income as the base for determining their credit size if it’s higher than their income for 2021. The maximum benefit for single adults will triple and the threshold for disqualifying investment income will increase to $10,000 from $3,650, a boon for day-trading millennials.

• Democrats say all these income transfers are needed to ensure people don’t go hungry or become homeless. But their bill would also extend last year’s 15% food stamp boost through September and provide another $27 billion in rental and utility assistance, on top of the $25 billion in the December relief bill to cover back rent for nonpaying tenants.

All of this arrives when the Covid vaccine rollout is accelerating, the economy is recovering at a rapid pace, and the national jobless rate is already down to 6.2%. The goal of this Democratic program isn’t Covid relief. The point is to expand and solidify the role of government as the guarantor of every American’s income unlinked to any obligation to work.

[End]

Exactly. Liberals in our country have been conditioned by Democrat politicians and their loyal toadies in the corrupt news media to worship the federal government as their secular god. With this bill, Democrats in congress hope to satisfy their supplicants for the next six months, at which time they will have another debt-funded monstrosity already in the hopper to pass around like manna from heaven.

Combine this atrocity with HR1, the “for the people” act, and you have the recipe to fully institutionalize a permanent form of fascist/socialist government in the former constitutional Republic that was America.

That is all.

Today’s Required Reading: Tucker Carlson on Why Washington, DC is Now a Police State

I’ve warned you for six weeks or so now that the UniParty’s wall around the national Capitol Building and ongoing occupation of the District of Columbia by thousands of National Guard personnel is likely to become a permanent feature of life in the nation’s capital. The wall and army are not there for any real reason, but for purely political ones as the Democrats and their willing RINO accomplices continue to prop up their illegitimate regime by spreading false stories of “security threats” coming from some nebulous “Q Anon” insurgent force exists only in the minds political hacks and the hopelessly ignorant among us.

Tucker Carlson took on all of this nonsense during his opening monologue last night, in a way that only he can do. The transcript makes for an epic read.

Here are some excerpts to whet your appetite:

Liberals are a fearful group. The list of things American liberals are afraid of can fill an entire shelf of volumes. It would make an amusing reference set: The Encyclopedia of Liberal Neuroses Unabridged.

Absolutely everything upsets liberals, agitates them, and inflames their allergies. Nature itself is a terrifying experience for liberals because they can’t control it. It has all these sex differences and climate fluctuations. They’ll pass you on their bicycle, sporting their little paper obedience masks, struggling to breathe from oxygen deprivation, yet feeling virtuous and protected. And, of course, judging you for not wearing the uniform.

There’s nothing rational about that behavior, but you shouldn’t be surprised by it. Modern liberalism is not a coherent worldview, it’s a deeply unhappy, high-strung personality type. Wokeness is what you get when people are miserable inside.

When you’re a liberal, the world is a very scary place, but there is one fear that rises above all other fears in the liberal mind: The fear of “the other.” Like all primitive cultures, modern liberalism is tribal. Liberals understand most of the American continent as a mysterious dark space, like a medieval map populated by drooling Trump voters and violent illiterates with extra chromosomes.

Liberals despise people like this, of course, and on some level, they know they’re hated right back. They worry that someday there will be a backlash against the people in charge, which, of course, is them. That’s their biggest fear, a peasant revolt.

A lot of liberals were certain that March 4 was the day the right-wing revolution would finally begin. March 4, they believed, with something called “QAnon Inauguration Day.” What is QAnon Inauguration Day? We have no idea, and we don’t know anyone who does. We’d bet money that not one Trump voter in a million had heard of it until this week, when the hysteria merchants on the other channels started yapping about it on television.

They’d heard about it from Nancy Pelosi, who told her bodyguards to write up a report on the threat of QAnon Inauguration Day. So that’s what they did. We never really learned any details, but members of Congress were not taking chances. Many of them fled the Capitol Thursday. House leaders rescheduled votes so that the rank-and-file legislators could escape with their lives, if not with their dignity.

This was not simply partisan hysteria. Democrats and Republicans seemed united in their shared terror.

Sunday News Roundup: Pelosi’s Capitol Riot Fairy Tale Takes a Hit and Whitmer has a Nursing Home Problem

Imagine if he didn’t have an army of handlers writing his scripts, whispering into that earpiece and reminding him where he is every minute of the day. – Here is why China Joe Biden is seldom allowed out of the White House:

I’m sure “Shirley” Jackson Lee appreciates her new name.

Why do Democrats hate biological women so deeply? – If you have daughters, granddaughters or nieces you care about, watch and listen to the clip below. This is the ultimate consequence of the policies currently being pushed by Joe Biden and his despicable handlers:

This seems like a big deal, doesn’t it? – If we had a functioning news media based on real standards of journalism in this country, this would not be news at all, since President Trump told us weeks ago that he had offered to call in National Guard troops to help Capitol Police control the Capitol grounds on January 6, but was turned down by Nancy Pelosi. The entirety of the corrupt national news media ignored Trump for the simple fact that statement did not conform to their preferred narrative that the Capitol riot was in fact an attempted insurrection led by Trump. After all, you couldn’t very well maintain this absurd narrative if Trump was actually trying to get Pelosi to beef up security a week in advance, could you?

It turns out that it has taken five weeks for the media to follow up on that presidential statement and figure out that, oops, Trump was right.

Here’s an excerpt from that story at the Daily Caller:

In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving recalled to House Admin how previous discussions with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her office factored in to his “blender of decision making,” according to three sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin.

Pelosi’s office had previously impressed upon Irving that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol Grounds, Irving allegedly told House Admin. The discussions, which centered around “optics,” allegedly occurred in the months prior to the Jan. 6 riot, during a time when deployment of federal resources for civil unrest was unpopular with Democrats and many members of Congress.

The three sources who confirmed the discussion to the Daily Caller did so under the condition of anonymity, citing the fear of putting a chill on further witnesses to how the security situation unfolded Jan. 6. The discussion, if accurate, raises questions as to what role Pelosi’s office had in the security failures that resulted in the resignations of both Irving and former Chief of Capitol Police Steven Sund. Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill did not deny the allegations in a statement to the Daily Caller.

“The Speaker’s Office has made it clear publicly and repeatedly that our office was not consulted or contacted concerning any request for the National Guard ahead of January 6th. That has been confirmed by former Sergeant at Arms Irving in sworn testimony before Senate committees. The Speaker expects security professionals to make security decisions and to briefed about those decisions,” Hammill said.

[End]

Now, of course Pelosi’s office denies the story since it destroys the entire basis for the impeachment scam she spent a month ramming through. It also destroys the narrative she and her fellow UniParty Democans and Republicrats have built up to justify their effort to make the wall currently encircling the Capitol Building and 7,000-strong ongoing National Guard presence a permanent feature of life in the Washington, DC police state.

Every word these people and their toadies in the news media say to you is a lie. Once you accept that reality, everything makes perfect sense.

Speaking of lying liars who lie, how about that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, huh? – He got hit with yet another major sexual harassment allegation on Saturday, and the New York Times actually decided to cover it. I write about that amazing event in detail in another piece this morning. Go read it. Thanks.

Guess who else has a nursing home deaths problem? – If you guessed Michigan Governor and aspiring Central American Dictator Gretchen Whitmer, you win the prize!

On Saturday, a group of Republican legislators alleged that, like Cuomo, Whitmer’s draconian and idiotic executive edicts related to COVID-19 may have inflated the death tolls among senior citizens residing in Michigan’s nursing home facilities. They also allege that, like Cuomo, Whitmer’s administration has systematically under-reported the number of such deaths over the past 10 months.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at Fox News:

Republican state legislators in Michigan have Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in their sights as they call for investigations into the governor’s handling of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic.

The call to investigate Whitmer, a Democrat, came in a pair of letters to both acting U.S. Attorney General Monty Wilkinson and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Michigan State Sen. Jim Runestad spearheaded the letters, which were signed by seven other Republican state senators.

“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy placed patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” Runestad said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Questions remain regarding the accuracy of data, compliance with CDC guidelines and compliance with our state’s Freedom of Information Act. There is a critical need for a full investigation into these matters.”

In the letters, the lawmakers pointed out that COVID-19 infections and deaths in the Wolverine State “have soared” over the past year and that Whitmer’s administration had “been questioned about unintended consequences” of her policies.

The senators also called attention to “discrepancies” in cases and death data “in the state’s long-term care facilities.”

“It has now come to our attention that these reporting errors have likely not been resolved,” the Republicans charged.

“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy put patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” they added.

[End]

Naturally, this rising scandal is being ignored by the rest of the corrupt national news media, which spent months during 2020 building Whitmer up as a dandy choice to become Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, just as they spent months building Cuomo up as a potential president, just as they spent a year doing the same for the Creepy Porn Lawyer.

Are you sensing a pattern here? If the media is telling you some Democrat would be just great leading the country, that likely means that Democrat is among the very worst people in the world.

The more you know…

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Even the Media and Democrats Know Biden’s Unstable, and Springsteen Gets a Pass

Today’s China Joe Biden Energy Policy Impact Update. – The price of a gallon of gasoline has now risen by 50 cents since Election Day, 2020.

Thanks, Democrats!

Today’s Authoritarian Thought Control Update. – Facebook last week started censoring linking or cutting and pasting any news stories coming from Australia because the government there is cracking down on its monopolistic practices. This week, Twitter has begun suspending accounts whose messages it clams are “undermining faith in NATO.”

Joseph Goebbels would be so proud.

Here’s the reward for announcing you’re going to start doing a new podcast with Barack Obama:

I think maybe it’s time Bruce Springsteen cuts all those songs about how unfair the justice system is to the “working man” out of his repertoire.

Even the media knows Joe Biden is mentally impaired. – How do you know that’s the case? When you see multiple news reports doing “fact checks” talking about how it is perfectly normal to indefinitely delay delivering a State of the Union – style address to congress.

First, there indeed is not a requirement in the constitution or law for any president to deliver a state of the union speech. The constitution simply requires the president to update congress on the state of the union “from time to time,” and the form of that update could be a speech, or it could just be in writing as several early U.S. presidents chose to do. But over time, it has become an annual tradition for the president to deliver a speech.

In its story making excuses for Biden’s failure to make any such speech, USA Today notes that none of the last 6 presidents have chosen to deliver what was called a “state of the union” speech to congress during their first year in office, although they all, including Donald Trump, chose to make a speech without tagging it with that name. Biden’s White House initially set this past Tuesday as a tentative date for his giving such a speech, but that day came and went with little media notice, because to notice it would be to invite questions about Biden’s capacity for delivering such a speech.

Indeed, when you think about it, why would a Democrat president turn down the opportunity to deliver a nationally-televised speech to a congress in which his own party has nominal control of both the House and Senate? It’s a tailor-made opportunity to show off all the things you’ve already done and all you intend to do for the rest of the year with a captive audience of tens of millions of Americans. That’s certainly how Donald Trump used the opportunity in 2017 and how Barack Obama used it in 2009.

The USA Today excuse-making piece details how the White House initially said the speech would be this month, and how his spokesperson, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, falsely claims that no such speech was ever contemplated:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Feb. 16 that Biden’s first appearance before a joint session “was never planned to be in February,” even though Biden said in January that it would be, according to Axios.

Pelosi said on Feb. 11 that a joint session wouldn’t likely be convened until after Congress passes a COVID-19 relief bill, potentially delaying Biden’s first address until March, Roll Call reported.

“We won’t be doing any of that until we pass our COVID bill. That’s the first order of business,” she said.

[End]

So, why would China Joe’s handlers be reluctant to put their sock puppet out before the American people for such a prime PR opportunity? The answer’s pretty clear, isn’t it? They don’t want the American people en masse to get a good, long look at this guy as he struggles to read text from a teleprompter. Plus, they’re scared to death about what he might blurt out in the middle of the thing, or that he might start repeating the stuff they’re saying to him through the earpiece he constantly wears out loud, something he has already done several times now.

The man is a potential pratfall on feeble legs, and they know it. That is why he hasn’t already delivered a speech to a joint session of congress, and why he most likely never will.

His fellow Democrats in congress know he’s an accident waiting to happen, too. – They’re so worried about Biden’s advancing impairment that they want him to give up sole possession of the nuclear codes.

I swear I’m not making this up:

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

Multiple House Democrats have signed a letter urging President Biden to look at ways he can end his sole authority as president to order the use of America’s nuclear weapons.

“As president, you will have the final say on any changes to U.S. nuclear policy. We respectfully request that you, as president, review ways in which you can end the sole authority you have to launch a nuclear attack, and to install additional checks and balances into the system,” the letter states.

The letter notes that there have been multiple possible systems proposed and lists several of them. One proposal involves “Requiring additional officials in the line of presidential succession, starting with the vice president and the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives — neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree — to concur with a launch order, and utilizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s tracking of those officials to ensure prompt communication.”

https://twitter.com/politico/status/1364251316852322305

That’s three dozen House Democrats – Biden’s own Party – tacitly acknowledging how little confidence they have in the sock puppet they helped to install in the White House.

We are so screwed.

The perks of being a federal employee never end in a Democrat administration. – Check this out:

Think about that: You get $1400 one time, they get it every week for 15 weeks. My daughter has been home schooling her two daughters for 11 months now, and hasn’t received a dime from the feds for doing so. But if you’re a federal employee, you’re fixing to get 15 weeks of paid leave, which not coincidentally should get you through the rest of the school year. And my daughter and her husband’s taxes will help pay for that.

Infuriating.

Sunday News Roundup: Fact-checkers Disappear as Dems Lard up the ‘Stimulus’ Bill With Pork

I write at length in another piece this morning about the media smear of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for putting his state’s elderly population first in line to receive the COVID vaccines. But that is far from the only media smear of DeSantis happening right now.

The Florida Governor is also being smeared for…wait for it…his efforts to ensure election integrity! No kidding:

From the story at BigLeaguePolitics:

Florida had the most transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country,” DeSantis said. “Other states took days, weeks, and even months to count their votes. And yet Florida, by midnight on election night, we had 99% reporting and 11 million votes counted, tabulated, and put out to the public.”

Florida’s legislature had moved to reform the state’s election practices in the interests of reporting brevity and election integrity following the disputed 2000 presidential election. The results of Florida’s presidential election were available and clear on election night in November, with other states implementing mass-in voting for the first time struggling to report results for several days or even weeks.

DeSantis’ proposal wouldn’t eliminate mail-in voting in Florida. It would merely require every voter who wishes to vote by mail to request a mail-in ballot every election, as opposed to mailing millions of ballots without verifying addresses and identities.

Under the package, only someone’s family member could drop off their ballot, in a move designed to prevent suspect political front groups from “harvesting” ballots. This would establish a clear chain of custody from the voter to the state without unnecessary third parties.

The comprehensive package would also require counties and municipalities to make election results public and transparent in timely fashion.

[End]

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

But wait, there’s more!

DeSantis is also under fire this weekend for taking this action on Friday:

That’s right: He’s the only governor in the country who is paying appropriate tribute to the single most influential media figure in our nation’s history. So naturally, the DC/New York Democrat media propaganda machine – who all hated Rush – are up in arms smearing DeSantis over this move, too.

If that doesn’t convince you that DeSantis is right at the top of potential GOP presidential nominees for 2024, then you aren’t paying attention. Assuming Donald Trump chooses not to make another bid, DeSantis is in fact the most likely to become the nominee at this moment in time.

I’m old enough to remember when a U.S. President got blamed for every one of these deaths by the corrupt national news media. – Yeah, but that was a month ago. Now that a Democrat sock puppet is in office, he won’t get blamed for the fact that more than 100,000 Americans supposedly died from COVID-19 during the first month of his presidency:

That, of course, is according to the official count, which we have all known for almost a year now is radically overblown. But still, 100,000 in a month seems like a lot, doesn’t it? Seems like something CNN and MSNBC and all of your local news stations would maybe take a moment to note, and maybe even display ticker at the bottom of the screen as a constant reminder. Right?

But all of those tickers have magically disappeared now, gone the moment China Joe Biden was sworn into the presidency. Funny how that works.

Guess what else has magically disappeared from the corrupt news media? – If you said “fact-checkers,” you win the prize. Remember how CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times and all the alphabet broadcast networks had full-time presidential fake fact-checkers on staff to obsess over every word a certain ex-president had to say?

Yeah, they’re all gone now:

From the story at Mediaite:

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale was one of the busiest people in the cable news business for several years, but he has almost completely disappeared from the network’s programming over the past month or so. What happened?

Dale became a veritable household name among cable news viewers during Trump’s presidency after his work for the Toronto Star, tallying and debunking false or misleading statements by Trump, landed him a national gig with CNN.

Since joining CNN in June of 2019, Dale has appeared or been mentioned on the network more than once every other day on average, according to the Internet Archive.

That exposure dropped sharply after November 4, and according to the TV Eyes media monitoring database, since President Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, Dale has only appeared on the network once. And that appearance, last Friday, was to fact-check Donald Trump’s lawyers.

[End]

That’s right: CNN’s “fact-checker” has made only one on-air appearance since China Joe was installed into the White House, and that was to “fact-check” lawyers for Donald Trump.

Nevermind that you could have kept an army of fact-checkers busy for a full week just to correct all the rank BS Biden spewed during his CNN town hall last week with Cooper Anderson, er, Anderson Cooper, that job will not be available for the next four years because it doesn’t fit neatly into the agenda of the Democrat Party and its army of operatives who infest the national news media.

*sigh*

What’s the most predictable thing in the world? – Democrats pushing pork.

That’s what they’re doing in this $1.9 trillion “stimulus” bill – larding it up with hundreds of billions of dollars in wasteful spending on leftist political projects:

From the story at RedState.com:

House Democrats finally released their long-awaited $1.9 trillion Wuhan coronavirus relief bill.

It probably wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to predict that it would be packed full of goodies for the friends of Democrats like the prior “relief” bills, seeming less about “relief” to help desperate Americans and more like doling out pork for pet causes.

Same song, 10,000th verse from your Democrat Party. Some things never change.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: AOC’s Riot Fable Continues to Fall Apart

Every day is a new day for China Joe Biden. – President Biden just can’t help himself. Yesterday he repeated a lie that he made up a decade ago about getting “shot at” while on a trip in the Middle East. That lie has been debunked more times than Jussie Smollett’s lies, but the President likely just forgot about that fact. So, he just blurted it out one more time:

This is who we have in the White House: A man who can’t remember things from one day to the next. If you think it looks and sounds as if every day is a new day for Joe Biden, that’s because it is.

The woman is lying. If you see her lips moving, she’s lying. That’s what she does. – In what should come as a surprise to literally no one on the face of the earth who has synapses firing in their cranial cavities, more factual problems have arisen about the fables AOC has been telling about her experience during the Capitol Riot of January 6.

It turns out that she wasn’t even in the Capitol Building at the time of the riot, but that the timeline she has constructed around her fables simply is not possible.

From the story at RedState.com:

But when the knock came on her door, shortly after 1:01, no one had even breached the Capitol building yet. There was some pushing past an outer perimeter barrier at 12:53 still some distance from the Capitol building but the breach of the building didn’t come until about an hour after the officer knocked on AOC’s door. What she’s saying now is with the hindsight of what later occurred, but there was no way of knowing that people were breaching a building at that point because it hadn’t yet happened.

“As the Capitol complex was stormed and people were being killed, none of us knew in the moment what areas were compromised.” But that “moment” hadn’t actually happened yet at 1:01 p.m. No one knew any of that. The building hadn’t been “compromised” or “stormed” as of yet.

So suggesting that it had, to provide buttress for her reaction, is again manipulative.

There’s also been no public evidence that people were ever trying to storm the Cannon building, much less at 1:01 p.m. We’ve asked the Capitol Police for their records to confirm that but haven’t gotten a response yet.

[End]

RedState should not expect to get an answer from the Capitol Police for the simple fact that AOC is lying, and the Capitol Police won’t want to cause her any more humiliation than she has already brought onto herself.

She’s a liar – it’s what she does. Lying to gullible and easily-manipulated Democrat voters is how she got elected, and it is how she plans to continue to rise through the power structure in Washington, DC. As I have said many times before, if you believe in reincarnation, then when you look into AOC’s dead, beady eyes you should see the reincarnation of Adolph Hitler. At this point in her life, she is Hitler circa 1933 or so, and she intends to keep rising until she becomes Hitler circa 1939.

So of course she is lying about the riot, because the riot, in her mind, simply represents opportunity to manipulate the public. After all, that’s how Adolph would have looked at it, too.

Speaking of opportunities… – If congressional Republicans had spines, they would be looking at yesterday’s action by congressional Democrats to strip Marjorie Taylor Green of her committee assignments as a golden opportunity. In an action without precedent in modern times, the Democrats – with 11 RINOs supporting them – voted to remove a duly-elected representative from Georgia from all House committees.

From the story at the Daily Caller:

The House of Representatives voted Thursday to strip Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments.

In a 230-199 vote, the House voted to remove Greene from the House Education and Budget committees.

Greene has continued to claim that Trump won the Nov. 3 presidential election and has been linked to a number of conspiracy theories, including QAnon related conspiracies. Greene gave a speech on the House floor Thursday after a Wednesday night meeting with House Republicans where she apologized for promoting conspiracy theories and reportedly was met with applause by many in the room.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday that he would not remove Greene from her committee assignments.

“Past comments from and endorsed by Marjorie Taylor Greene on school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference. I condemn those comments unequivocally. I condemned them in the past. I continue to condemn them today. This House condemned QAnon last Congress and continues to do so today,” McCarthy said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.

[End]

Coming as it does a mere month after it was revealed that Democrat Eric Swalwell had an affair with a honeypot spy from China for a couple of years and the decision by Nancy Pelosi to leave Swalwell as a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, the decision to remove Greene from committees is a truly breathtaking act of hyper-partisanship. Yes, Greene’s a conspiracy theorist who has in the past indicated she doesn’t believe the government’s story on 9/11 and all manner of other things, but the truth is her behavior has been no more repugnant than that of AOC or Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar or Swalwell.

So, if congressional Republicans possessed a spine, they would be looking at yesterday’s vote from a long-term perspective, and making plans to take exactly the same action against AOC, Tlaib, Omar and Swalwell when they take back the majority in the House in the 2022 mid-term elections. That is, after all, the next logical step to be taken here.

But you can bet your bottom dollar that neither Majority Leader McCarthy nor any other GOP house member is entertaining any such thoughts, because to do so would require the possession of intestinal fortitude. It would also require them to finally, at long last, recognize that they are engaged in a very real war on Capitol Hill, and have been for the last 170 years, and the Democrats are the only side truly engaged in the fight.

Thus, when congress convenes in 2023 with a small GOP majority in the House, you won’t see McCarthy allowing any move to remove any Democrat from any committee assignments, under the rationale that if he and his Republican members just play nice with the Democrats, they will play nice, too. It’s a rationale that has consistently proved to be an exercise in rank futility since about 1850, but the Republicans never seem to learn.

That is all.

DeSantis Whips Abbott Again on National Guard Controversy

Well, here we go with the next step in making the DC Police State permanent. – Military.com is reporting today that the National Guard under China Joe Potato Head Biden plans to keep a very substantial force of more than 7,000 Guard personnel in the nation’s capital to defend against gangs of marauding Trump supporters that do not exist.

The plan announced on Thursday originally was to keep this huge military presence in DC through the end of January, but that was mysteriously extended on Friday through the end of March. And at the end of March, it will no doubt be extended again, and it will keep on being periodically extended until the corrupt news media determines it is just a part of the “new normal” and stops remarking on it altogether.

Because that’s how this stuff works in the DC Swamp.

Here’s an excerpt from the story at Military.com:

The National Guard Bureau is working on a plan to call for thousands of volunteers from the 25,600 Guard members in Washington, D.C., to remain on duty in the city until as late as mid-March.

Guard officials announced Thursday that approximately 15,000 Air and Army National Guard troops would begin returning to their home states as early as this weekend.

Over the past two weeks, the massive Guard force flowed into D.C. to reinforce federal law enforcement for Wednesday’s inauguration of President Joe Biden, following the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead.

While the inauguration took place peacefully, the Guard is still supporting requests from the U.S. Secret Service and federal law enforcement. Guard officials said Thursday that approximately 7,000 troops would likely remain in D.C. through the end of January.

As of Friday, the plan is to have up to 7,000 troops remain in D.C. through March 12, but those details are still in the planning stages, a National Guard official told Military.com.

Any Guard members who stay past the original 31-day mobilization order will be on a volunteer basis, and their orders will be modified for the new time frame, Nahaku McFadden, a spokesman for the Guard Bureau, told Military.com.

“We are not going to make anybody stay,” McFadden said.

[End]

Ok, guess which 7,000 National Guard personnel will no doubt “volunteer” to remain? Those would be the 7,000 who pledged their undying loyalty not to America, but to China Joe and Kamala and San Fran Nan and the rest of the in-power Democrats during the recent “vetting” of the Guard personnel by the FBI.

Thus does The Swamp create its very own Praetorian Guard. The “new normal” has arrived.

The states start fighting back a little. – On a positive note, some Republican governors have had enough of supporting this nonsense and are starting to fight back a bit. That effort was of course led by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who told reporters early Friday that he had ordered Florida’s National Guard troops to return home, stating that “These folks are soldiers, not Nancy Pelosi’s servants.”

DeSantis, who is quickly emerging as a serious early GOP contender for the presidency in 2024, went on to say that “This is a half-cocked mission at this point and the appropriate thing is to bring them home.”

Cool.

Much later in the day, increasingly useless Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, who has completely lost  his way related to COVID-19 since last summer, woke up and realized he had just missed yet another opportunity to provide some real, actual leadership to DeSantis, decided he’d better call his National Guard people back home, too.

Hey, better late than never, right Governor Abbott? To be fair, of course, Abbott had threatened to take this action as early as Wednesday, but he’s become really good at issuing empty threats and really bad on following through with real leadership action. Last summer, when the country was in the midst of establishing the state-by-state paradigm for dealing with COVID-19, Abbott had a brief moment in time when it looked as if he might summon the courage to really lead on the issue and take the strong actions to save his state’s small businesses and jobs that DeSantis is now famous for having taken.

Sadly, Abbott couldn’t find it within himself to defy the tyranny of “experts” and do the right thing. As a result, DeSantis today has emerged as the GOP governor who seems most likely to be able to make a strong run at the party’s presidential nomination in 2024, with South Dakota Governor Christi Noem running a strong second. Abbott, who got a quick start out of the gate, is now foundering behind the pack and trying to figure out some way to get his mojo back.

Too bad.

Wednesday News Roundup: Something Awful Has Been Unleashed On Our Country

As you watch the clip below, remember that projection – accusing the opposition of that which you are yourself guilty – is the favorite tactic of the political left:

That’s all you need to know about that.

You’ve all heard about that Jerry Seinfeld series called “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”? – Well, looks like there’s a new reality show called “Two Disgusting Old Hags Getting Drunk and Talking Russia”:

You can’t go to the inauguration today. – But don’t worry, because depraved celebrities will be there to represent all you little people and your interests!

There. Doesn’t that make you feel better about the DC Swamp having been turned into a police state for this fake inauguration?

*sigh*

Hey, the corrupt news-fakers at CNN will be there to serve as your watchdog on the Biden/Harris administration too. – Oh, wait, no they won’t:

My goodness. The comparison by Glenn Greenwald to North Korea’s state-run media is perfectly apt, given the fascist nature of the government taking over the country today.  Soon enough, independent voices like Greenwald’s will likely be silenced as the destruction of the first amendment and its protections accelerates.

Did Cocaine Mitch blackmail President Trump on the question of pardoning Julian Assange? – That’s the not-so-shocking allegation Tucker Carlson made last night in an opening monologue that sums Mitch McConnell up in a nutshell. Carlson, based on unnamed sources, accused McConnell of basically blackmailing the President by threatening GOP support for convicting him in this latest impeachment scam should he choose to pardon the WikiLeaks founder. If true, it would be a scandal of epic proportions if America had anything resembling an independent and functioning news media establishment.

But of course, America doesn’t have that anymore.

From a story at RedState.com:

During his opening monologue on Tuesday evening, Carlson made a case for pardoning Assange and former CIA agent John Kiriakou. Both men face harsh punishments for their part in revealing classified information. “Julian Assange and John Kiriakou both went to jail for telling the truth,” Carlson insisted. “Neither one stole classified documents from the US government. Neither one of them hacked into anything.”

The Fox host continued: “Julian Assange told you a lot about what the US government was doing abroad and told you everything about what the DNC was doing to rig its own primaries back in 2016.”

Carlson then explained why Kiriakou should be given clemency. “John Kiriakou, meanwhile, told the truth about what our military and our intel agencies were doing during the Iraq war. Again, you may not agree with his position, but what he said was true,” he noted.

The host alleged that McConnell threatened Trump, telling him that the Senate is more likely to convict him in the upcoming impeachment trial if he pardoned Assange.

Carlson said:

We’re hearing tonight that neither man, particularly Julian Assange, and we don’t know if this is true, is likely to get a pardon. Why? Apparently because Republicans in the Senate, and by Republicans in the Senate we mean Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the leader of Republicans in the Senate, has sent word over to the White House: If you pardon Julian Assange, we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial.

“Now is it legal to hold that over a President’s head?” Carlson asked. “We’re not lawyers, we don’t know, it’s certainly wrong. But more than that, it tells you everything about their priorities.”

Carlson continued: “What is Mitch McConnell, your designated defender in the United States Senate worrying about? He’s worrying about protecting the uniparty in Washington. Not his party, his party and the Democrat Party, in Permanent Washington.”

[End]

Yes, exactly. As I’ve pointed out multiple times in recent weeks, the UniParty is back in control of the Swamp, and protecting its priorities and interests is now paramount for both the Democans and Republicrats who infest it.

Assange was not included among the many pardons issued by the President last night, despite rampant rumors that he would be.

Then again, neither was the Tiger King, Joe Exotic, whose lawyers were so confident of a pardon that they had a stretch limousine waiting outside the prison in which the reality TV star is being held. It seems doubtful that Cocaine Mitch had anything to do with that decision.

Speaking of Tucker Carlson, if you missed his monologue on Monday night, you really should go read it at the link below, because it perfectly sums up what is happening in Washington, DC today: A massive and unprecedented show of military might by an incoming fascist regime.

Here is an excerpt from that monologue:

Our capital city is currently under military occupation. By Inauguration Day, there are expected to be more than 26,000 armed federal troops in Washington. No living American has seen a moment like the one we’re watching now.

For comparison, Lyndon Johnson sent a total of 13,600 federal troops and D.C. Army National Guardsmen to quell the race riots in Washington that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Those riots injured hundreds of people and killed at least 13. In 1864, as the Civil War raged on the other side of the Potomac and Americans died every day in large numbers on the battlefield, there were fewer federal troops protecting Washington, D.C., than there are right now.

But according to our leaders, the so-called “insurrection” of Jan. 6 was much worse than any of that. So in response, they have assembled the largest military presence in Washington in all of American history during peacetime. It’s truly a national force, with Guardsmen from every state in the Union as well as Puerto Rico. The question is, why?

For decades, Washington, D.C., had the highest per-capita law enforcement presence in the country and one of the highest in the world. There was no need to fly in troops from Alaska to keep the city safe. But keeping the city safe is hardly the point of this exercise. The murder rate in the District of Columbia has risen with terrifying speed over the last six months. Men, women and children have been shot to death in the streets, but no one in charge seems to care about that or even notice. So no matter what they are telling you, those 26,000 federal troops are not there for your safety.

Instead, unmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power: “We’re in charge now. We run this nation, from Honolulu to our colony in the Caribbean and everywhere in between, very much including where you and your family live. Do not question us men with guns. We control the Pentagon.” And indeed, they do.

Republicans have spent years ignoring the leftward drift of our officer corps, but we can’t ignore it now. The mask is off our military leadership. The very same generals who howled at the idea of deploying American troops to stop an invasion of our southern border sent tens of thousands of soldiers with rifles to Washington purely as a show of force on behalf of the political party they support. Once they did that, they allowed Democratic politicians to degrade and politicize the military itself.

On Monday, The Daily Beast, the home page of our highly credentialed but none-too-bright ruling class, ran a piece with this title: “Can U.S. Spy Agencies Stop White Terror?” Other countries, the story pointed out, have domestic spy agencies to fight extremists at home. So, of course, we need one right away. What the piece does not mention is that those other countries include China, North Korea, and Kazakhstan. Domestic spy agency is a not-very-subtle euphemism for secret police. That is what they’re calling for.

So how long will this cycle go on? If you’re hoping America will revert to normal on Wednesday afternoon after Joe Biden is sworn in as president, you are an optimist. You probably assumed the quarantines and mandatory face coverings were temporary, too. Something awful has been unleashed on our country. Unchecked, it will inevitably lead to more awful things. 

[End]

God bless you all.

Thursday News Roundup: What Did Pelosi and McConnell Know and When Did They Know It?

Let’s start with a little DC Swamp humor found on Twitter yesterday:

Image may contain: 2 people, closeup, text that says 'D 1 5 MANURE WOMANURE'

It’s just perfect, really.

Coverage of the DC Swamp UniParty’s second sham impeachment of President Donald Trump can be found here and here.

The Little Menace to Society pushes the goal posts even further down the field. – If you’re planning any actual vacation trips or attending events at the local theater anytime in 2021, you might want to cool your heels on that action.

The little menace to American society Anthony Fauci is already pushing the next virus:

Well, of course. The “new strain” of the virus supposedly imported from England hasn’t taken hold of the public’s imagination, so now Fauci switches to the tactic of claiming America has somehow developed a completely unique strain of its own.

Just accept it: The Swamp wants to keep you cowering in your homes and wearing masks forever. This madness will not end until it is ended by force. And one of the myriad disastrous consequences of the fraudulent election we’ve just experienced is that the people who want to keep you in that sorry state will soon be in control of the armed forces of the United States.

It’s cleanup time at Twitter, everyone! – A week after his company coordinated in monopolistic fashion with other Big Tech giants to de-platform President Donald Trump and destroy Parler, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was out on the hustings trying to do some half-assed cleanup because Twitter’s stock is tanking.

From a story at DailyWire:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”

Dorsey’s remarks come after the company has taken a hit in its value since banning the president last week, following a riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter,” Dorsey wrote. “Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”

“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” he continued. “Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”

Dorsey claimed that the company did not coordinate with other tech companies with its decision to ban the president and that other companies either made their own choices or “were emboldened by the actions of others.”

[End]

All of that is, of course, an outright lie, especially the part about not coordinating with the other Big Tech firms. This is just the CEO of a major corporation reading the talking points handed to him by his enormous staff of talking points monkeys in an effort to prevent the company from continuing to bleed billions of dollars in market value every day.

Sadly, he’ll probably succeed in that effort.

I’d rather have a prostate exam than watch this:

Futile Gesture of the Week Award goes to…

Talk about a waste of time and energy – that effort has about as much chance of succeeding as this year’s Houston Rockets.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder – Just a reminder that, on January 5, the day before the riot took place at the U.S. Capitol when the small contingent of Capitol Police guarding the building were overwhelmed by a crowd of thousands, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser did this:

Oh.

So, as you continue to hear and see the corrupt news media claim that President Trump delayed calling out the National Guard to help secure the Capitol, know that the communist Democrat Mayor of the City had specifically and publicly discouraged making any such move just 24 hours earlier.

Everyone in the nation’s capitol knew that upwards of a million people were going to descend on the city on January 6 as congress debated whether or not to accept the clearly fraudulent electoral vote, and that professional agitators would certainly be in their midst. The FBI and Department of Justice admitted on Monday that they had been monitoring social media platforms and were aware in advance of plans by some agitators on both the left and the right to mount an effort to storm the Capitol. As is the habit of the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it chose to do nothing more than send out the most rudimentary, standard warnings to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials.

There was no reason whatsoever for the Capitol building to have been left so lightly-guarded, other than the Mayor of DC’s refusal to beef up the Capitol Police in advance. We do not know right now if Mayor Bowser had been made aware of the FBI’s warning before January 6 or not, nor do we know what Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi knew in advance of the riot.

Given that Pelosi has now staged a second impeachment scam based on the riot, and McConnell has expressed his own support of that effort, it is crucial that we find out whether they were warned in advance of the threat and chose to do nothing to prevent it, since that in and of itself might amount to at best an act of criminal negligence.

But you can be sure that it will be a cold day in hell before anyone at the FBI or DOJ will deliver that information to the public. After all, the interests of the DC Swamp UniParty are paramount. You little people can go pound sand.

That is all.

Dems/Media Ramp Up the Drumbeat to Remove Trump

As I pointed out this morning, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the media are moving swiftly now to try to have President Donald Trump removed from office prior to the end of his term in office on January 20th. Over the past few hours, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have issued calls for the President’s removal via the 25th amendment or impeachment, and China Joe Biden just gave a highly inflammatory speech in which he essentially labeled President Trump and his supporters as traitors:

The 25th amendment route is really the only potential vehicle that could be used to achieve the DC Swamp’s goal of getting rid of Trump before January 20, given that any impeachment/removal effort by the house and senate would consume weeks of time. The trouble with the 25th amendment route is the likelihood that several cabinet officials who would have to support such an effort are considering resigning, a process that already began today. From a story at Fox News:

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao announced Thursday that she is stepping down from her post, a day after the rioting on Capitol Hill — making her the latest member of the administration to resign over Trump’s conduct, and the first Cabinet member to do so.

“Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed,” she said in a statement.

“As I’m sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.”

[End]

We can expect to see additional cabinet officials walking away in the days to come. Given that an effort to take out a president using the 25th amendment requires by necessity come continuity of the players involved and the cooperation of Vice President Mike Pence, it seems unlikely to succeed. While Pence might be inclined to do so with all other considerations being equal, he still likely harbors presidential aspirations of his own and has know that any such cooperation would sound the death knell for his political career.

But none of that will prevent Pelosi, Schumer, Biden and the other Swamp creatures from continuing to try. Trump handed them a rope yesterday, and they will certainly do everything they can to try to hang him with it.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Fauci Pushes More COVID Fascism and Tapper Takes Ossoff to Task

Jon Ossoff Blows Off Jake Tapper's Challenge To Claim That ...

 

This actually happened in the U.S. House of Representatives on Sunday:

For lunch today, the congressional cafeteria beneath the Longworth Building will no doubt be serving “ra-men” and “ra-women” soup.

Hooboy. It’s gonna be a long year.

Senator Ted Cruz is really getting good with this Twitter stuff. – Here, he captures the reason why the seasonal flu has suddenly ceased to exist in the era of COVID-19, according to the CDC:

No doubt, Creepy Uncle China Joe Potato Head Biden will be taking full credit for this seasonal miracle during his inaugural address.

Meanwhile, the little menace to society continues to advance COVID fascism in the United States. – Anthony Fauci was on TV yet again on Sunday, because of course he was, and he used this appearance to work to normalize the concept of a President Joe Potato Head Biden issuing a highly-illegal national lockdown order along the lines of what communist Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom has done in California:

Here’s an excerpt from that Daily Wire article:

“Are we looking at a campaign when President-elect Biden becomes president, are we going to need to do another 15 to 30 days, stop the spread, maybe do a partial lockdown — between that issue and obviously what’s happening now?” NBC News host Chuck Todd asked. “And it looks like hospitals — they were overwhelmed in November. Dr. Fauci, what’s going to happen at the end of January?”

“Yeah. Well, I hope we don’t have to do the lockdown because of the — we all know, Chuck, how much Covid-19 fatigue there is of people just really being worn down with this,” Fauci responded. “But we certainly need to enhance and make more uniform our public health measures. President-elect Biden has called for 100 days of everybody wearing a mask uniformly throughout the country. That’s really a good start.”

“The idea about locking down is something that you might have to do, but you want to avoid,” Fauci continued. “In certain areas of the country, such as in California, which is really being stressed with regard to the hospital beds and the personnel who are really getting exhausted with the number of cases that are coming in, you may have to have, and they already have decided, on some form of lockdown in specific areas of the state or specific regions of the country. So that’s not out of the question. We hope we don’t have to do it countrywide, because we feel that if you adhere to the public health measures, you can turn things around short of a uniform lockdown.”

[End]

And this, in a nutshell, is why Anthony Fauci is such a clear and present menace to American society. China Joe obviously plans to implement a national lockdown shortly after being installed into the presidency – he’s made that crystal clear. But he also knows that no president has the constitutional authority to do any such thing short of declaring a national emergency and implementing martial law.

So, Joe Potato Head needs the imprimatur of Fauci so that he can use COVID and “science” as the justification for taking such a dramatic step. Bingo, Fauci appears on MSNBC and a perfectly compliant Chuck Todd feeds him the pre-vetted question, giving the little menace the opening to recite is pre-vetted answer.

Because science.

For more – much more – on how the globalist left is using COVID to incrementally steal Americans’ freedoms and advance the cause of globalism, read the separate piece I posted earlier today.

There’s an “election” in Georgia tomorrow, and I’m betting the results are pre-ordained. – Some of you may have noticed that CNN’s Jake Tapper was pretending to be an actual “journalist” in his interview with Democrat Georgia senate candidate John Ossoff. During the course of that interview, Tapper called Ossoff to task for his blatantly false, repeated claim that incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is running against Democrat lunatic Raphael Warnock, was knowingly campaigning with a member of the Ku Klux Klan:

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

CNN host Jake Tapper called out Democratic Senate candidate Jon Ossoff on Sunday for his false attacks on incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is running against Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock.

Ossoff’s attacks on Loeffler, falsely claiming that she has been “campaigning” with a member of the Ku Klux Klan, was so categorically false that left-leaning CNN ran a fact-check report on the claim last week.

“This is false,” CNN ruled. “A former member of the KKK took a photo with Loeffler while she was campaigning earlier this month. Loeffler’s campaign said the senator did not know who the man was and would have removed him from the event had she known. This is not, at all, the same as ‘campaigning with a klansman,’ as Ossoff claimed. Politicians often take pictures with people they don’t know.”

CNN noted that there was “no evidence” that Loeffler recognized or sought the support of the man in the picture. Loeffler’s campaign condemned the man, saying, “Kelly had no idea who that was, and if she had she would have kicked him out immediately because we condemn in the most vociferous terms everything that he stands for.”

Tapper pressed Ossoff about the claim during an interview on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” which comes just two days before election day in Georgia.

[End]

Meanwhile, as all of this was taking place, Ossoff’s opponent, incumbent Sen. David Perdue, was sitting at home after testing positive for COVID-19 a few days ago.

So, the question becomes, why are CNN and Democrat-toady Tapper suddenly singling out John Ossoff for a rare “fact check” of a fellow traveler on this particular false claim? I mean, every Democrat candidate for office in America makes outrageously false claims on each and every day – outrageous lies are the sole basis for leftism in this country, after all.

While CNN has taken up gobs of air time excoriating Ossoff for this specific claim, it has simultaneously ignored the stories about Warnock’s serial spousal abuse and the horror stories coming from the boy’s camps he used to run.

So, why the glaring disparity in coverage of the respective Democrat candidates? Could it be because CNN and Tapper know the outcomes of these two runoff elections are already pre-determined? Could it be because Tapper and CNN’s producers understand that, even though they are pretending to pound on Ossoff, the video clips they’re able to show of Loeffler unsuspectingly shaking hands with the Klan guy who she didn’t know was a Klan guy do more damage to her than to Ossoff?

Ah, yes. The answer to both questions is almost certainly yes.

Because that is the America in which we live today. If you think this America is a nightmare, you’re not alone.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: A Red Wave is Building for Donald Trump

Lots of other stuff was happening while Amy Coney Barrett was being confirmed and sworn in to her new seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.

First, let’s look at the latest results from the two polling firms – Rasmussen and Trafalgar – that accurately projected the final outcome of the 2016 election well in advance. 

In Rasmussen, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) has now assumed the national lead for the first time, coming in at 48% to Biden’s 47%. You may remember that Trump also led in the final Rasmussen survey in 2016, but ended up losing the popular vote thanks to the Fainting Felon’s enormous margin in a single state, California. Well, that, along with millions of illegal votes counted in her column.  We should be prepared for a similar result in the popular vote this time thanks in large part to the Democrats’ redoubled vote fraud strategy.

Still, this poll from this particular pollster is extremely encouraging. Note also that 2/3rds of this poll’s sample was taken on October 21 and 22, before the President’s domination of the final presidential debate, and thus very likely understates the Trump margin as a result.

Then there’s Trafalgar, the only pollster who makes any real effort to account for the very real and consequential “shy Trump voter” phenomenon. Trafalgar released a series of state polls on Monday showing the President leading in the states of Michigan, Florida and Arizona, all crucial swing states. These polls were take after that final debate.

Trafalgar’s most recent poll in the state of Pennsylvania had Biden leading by 2 points, but it was taken on Oct. 10-12, well before that last debate. It will be interesting to see if the group releases a new poll in that crucial state before Election Day.

Again, these are just polls, but these are from the two most reliable firms and are not affiliated with any corrupt media operation or university. They show what we already knew: All the momentum in this election is behind the President.

And then there is this. – The New York Times, no less, ran a piece on Monday citing new polling data indicating that President Trump is getting about 24% of the early votes cast thus far in … wait for it … Philadelphia!:

As The Last Refuge points out in this tweet, if Trump really does carry 24% of the Philly vote, Pennsylvania will not be close.

Apparently, the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden camp saw these polls too:

This is what a peaceful protest really looks like. – Incidentally, the Bidens and their evil handlers had to use an alternative route to get to their “rally.” Why? Because the main route to get there was overwhelmed with a sea of peaceful Trump supporters. Take a look:

This has been happening at every event Biden has held in PA over the past week. But you’re being brainwashed to believe that the guy who keeps speaking to empty backyards and parking lots is going to win in a landslide.

Yeah, no.

This is what will be left of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign come next Tuesday. – Hey, remember that big, yellow “Black Lives Matter” mural New York City’s buffoon Marxist Mayor Bill DeBlasio had painted right in front of Trump Tower this summer?

Here is what is left of it now:

See? Good things still can happen in the Big Apple.

He’s an elderly, demented Jeb! Bush now. – Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester ventured out of his basement on Monday to prove that he’s still alive and can move around without his handy IV. Things went about as we would have expected:

If you still think the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci, is a credible person, watch this video of him being completely dismantled by… wait for it … Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

Seriously, any questions? No? Good.

Finally, with Halloween coming up, I wanted to present you with the scariest video you will see this entire week. Watch it with the sound off and tell me I’m wrong:

Yikes!

Friday News Roundup: Pelosi Toadies for Iran and the Media Toadying for Biden is Nothing New

Here is the genius of President Donald Trump and his administration: They now have the Democrats sticking up for Iran. – No kidding, take a look at what San Fran Nan had to say yesterday in response to the joint press conference by DNI John Ratcliffe and worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray that both Iran and Russia are trying to interfere in this election:

“Iran is a bad actor, but in no way equivalent [to Russia].”

How pathetically un-American is that? But that is where the Democrats feel they need to go in order to keep pushing their “Russia Russia Russia” attack narrative against the President of the United States.

Genius.

And speaking of pathetic Democrats… – In case you missed it due to the media blackout, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett yesterday in a vote that was both along party lines and unanimous. That’s because the petulant Democrat members of the committee all boycotted the committee meeting.

It just don’t get any more pathetic than that, folks.

And now, a bit of wonderful trivia from our “HO-LEE-CRAP” file… – Rasmussen reports tweets out the fact that Black voters’ approval of President Trump rose to…wait for it… 46%[!!!!] in its latest daily survey:

My goodness. Obviously, job approval doesn’t necessarily translate into outright votes, but if the President’s share of the Black vote amounts to 1/3rd of that in this election, it will produce an unprecedented Red Wave election on November 3.

Hey, maybe this has something to do with it. – The Washington Examiner reports this morning that the rate of imprisonment for the Black community under Donald Trump’s presidency is the lowest it has been in 31 years. Equally as compelling, the rate of Hispanic incarceration is down by 24%.

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

America’s imprisonment rate has dropped to its lowest level since 1995, led by a dive in the percentage of blacks and Hispanics sent to jail during the Trump administration, according to a new Justice tally.

For minorities, the focus of President Trump’s First Step Act prison and criminal reform plan, the rate is the lowest in years.

For blacks, the imprisonment rate in state and federal prisons is the lowest in 31 years and for Hispanics it is down 24%.

“Across the decade from 2009 to 2019, the imprisonment rate fell 29% among black residents, 24% among Hispanic residents and 12% among white residents. In 2019, the imprisonment rate of black residents was the lowest it has been in 30 years, since 1989,” said the report.

Screen Shot 2020-10-23 at 8.10.45 AM.png

Bureau of Justice Statistics

 

Explaining the rate, Justice said, “At year-end 2019, there were 1,096 sentenced black prisoners per 100,000 black residents, 525 sentenced Hispanic prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic residents and 214 sentenced white prisoners per 100,000 white residents in the U.S. Among sentenced state prisoners at year-end 2018 (the most recent data available), a larger percentage of black (62%) and Hispanic (62%) prisoners than white prisoners (48%) were serving time for a violent offense.”

[End]

Oh. That’s some news you will never, never, ever see reported on CNN or MSNBC.

What if you give a press conference and the “press” refuses to show? – Former Hunter Biden/Joe Biden “business” partner Tony Bobulinski found out the hard way when he held a presser right before last night’s debate. Very predictably, almost nobody other than OANN and Fox News showed up.

Here is Ted Cruz excoriating the corrupt news media for its latest bit of malfeasance:

“It’s part of a pattern that we saw last week when the New York Post broke this story, and Big Tech – Twitter and Facebook – censored it, and essentially determined that the American people could not even hear the facts. I think the degree to which the media and Big Tech are shilling for Joe Biden, are protecting him, are covering him up and not even asking these questions, I think it’s really shameful.”

Yep, it really is, Senator.

But, while this current episode of the media shilling for the Democrats seems fresh and new to us in real-time, we should all remember that this really is not new behavior by our corrupt, worthless national news media. They’ve been doing this stuff for Democrats forever.

Go back to October 1919, and Woodrow Wilson’s stroke that left him incapacitated. Wilson’s wife essentially ran the government from then all the way through early 1921, and the pubic didn’t find out the truth for decades. Same with Franklin Roosevelt and his wheelchair. The media covered up that disability for decades. Same with John F. Kennedy’s massive drug abuse and affairs with the girlfriends of mob bosses and Russian spies, not to mention Marilyn Monroe. We didn’t find out about any of that stuff until 20-30 years later.

Remember how the Washington Post and Newsweek sat on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky story for months, and would have buried it altogether were it not for the fact that Matt Drudge decided to run with it on his then-fledgling website. And let’s not forget the solid wall of Omerta the media put up on behalf of the utterly despicable John Edwards and his fathering of an illegitimate child during the early phase 2008 presidential campaign.

This has been going on forever, folks. Our national news media has been rank, smelly, lying garbage for decades. It just seems new now because the fresh layer of rank, smelly garbage consisting of Twitter and Facebook has been layered over the top of it.

Look who thought President Trump won the debate last night:

Megyn Kelly is right: Trump won the debate handily. I explain my reasoning fully in another piece this morning. Go read it. Now.

Wednesday News Roundup: The New York Post Drops a Bombshell on Biden

You have to watch this in its entirety to fully grasp the level of depravity involved. – Appearing with Democrat activist Wolf Blitzer on CNN yesterday afternoon, Nancy Pelosi went into a full fit of rage after the fake news host dared to question her motives for refusing to negotiate in good faith on a stimulus bill.

You just have to watch both snips here to get the full picture:

This is what happens when politicians in one party become spoiled by never having to be held to account for their actions by the corrupted news media. Pelosi has gotten so used to living in her propaganda bubble with co-conspirator press members that she reacts with rage anytime a guy like Blitzer – who 20 years ago was an actual newsman and still slips into that mode on occasion – dares to pose a real question to her.

We see exactly the same reaction by Joe Biden anytime he is asked a real question by a reporter who slips up and forgets the role he’s playing.

It really is extraordinary. These people truly do believe they are entitled to say anything they want, to behave in any manner they wish, no matter how dishonest or depraved, and to do it all without having any fear of being held to account for their actions by the news media they carry around in their hip pockets.

And why wouldn’t they react this way, given that the news media has toadied for them for all these years?

Joe Biden, segregationist, Part 6,211. – It didn’t get any media notice, because of course it didn’t, but the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Candidate is now back to praising old segregationist Democrats in his stump speeches:

Here is a famous James Eastland quote from the 1960s: “The white race is a superior race, and the Negro race is an inferior race,” said Democrat Senator James Eastland.

There is a deep-seated psychological reason why Biden consistently heaps praise on old racists like Eastland and Robert Byrd, and it isn’t an innocent one.

The Corona-madness is deep in this one. – Michigan’s corona-madness quotient went a little higher in recent days. In case you missed it, fascist Gov. Gretchen Whitmer got poured out by the state’s supreme court once again, with a 6-1 ruling denying her the ability to enforce an of her latest mindless China Virus-related mandates on the public.

In the course of reading about that decision, one truly mad aspect of herr Gretchen’s most recent order came to light. From a story in the Detroit Free Press:

Robert Gordon, the director of the Department of Health and Human Services, issued a sweeping order Friday that largely mirrors statewide mandates previously levied by Whitmer in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The newly instituted order requires masks at any public gathering with two or more people — including sporting events and schools — for much of the state and maintains restrictions on the number of people who may enter stores or restaurants. Unlike under Whitmer’s orders, bars are now allowed to operate but they may only serve alcohol to people who are sitting down and 6 feet apart.

[End]

Yes, because the China virus is only transmissible if you are drinking while standing, see?

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

It’s all becoming crystal clear now. – In a blockbuster report that the rest of the corrupt U.S. news media will do its best to ignore, the New York Post this morning published some incredibly damning emails that it has obtained from a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop computer.

The emails show officials at Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid Hunter Biden millions in exchange for his influence on his then-Vice President dad, clearly soliciting the younger Biden to use his influence with dear ol’ daddy, who has claimed to have never even spoken to his son about his business dealings.

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad

Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to e-mails obtained by The Post.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the e-mail reads.

An earlier e-mail from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.

Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.

Less than eight months after Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for the introduction to his dad, the then-vice president admittedly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev.

“I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,” Biden infamously bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018.

“Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”

[End]

If Joe Biden were a Republican, this would be completely disqualifying and would be the only story anyone in the media would focus on for the next week. Because he’s a Democrat, you’ll barely see it mentioned anywhere outside of the Post.

But it’s a big, big deal.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Another October, Another FBI Scam to Influence an Election

Another October, another bit of “right-wing terrorist” horse manure from the FBI. – It’s amazing how this always seems to happen in the runup to a major election, isn’t it?

The FBI announced yesterday that it had made arrests of a dozen “right-wing terrorists” who were supposedly plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and “overthrow” the government of Michigan. The announcement and arrests of these people, who are actually anarchists – left wing terrorists, not right wing – of course come just in time for the media to use them as a tool to try to influence the upcoming election in favor of the Democrats, which of course is always the agency’s goal.

Here’s a video of one of the ringleaders, calling President Trump a “tyrant” and “an enemy”, but you are supposed to believe he and his fellow anarchists are actually Trump supporters:

Who are you gonna believe – the FBI or your lyin’ ears and eyes?

Thus, the sorry trail of FBI efforts to act as a tool of the Deep State to influence every major election cycle since 2016 remains intact, from the FBI-led Spygate effort in 2016 to the transparently mispresented case against registered Democrat Cesar Cayoc and agency coordination with the Mueller-led coup effort in 2018, and now to this. As a political tool, the FBI is first rate. As a law enforcement agency, it is as worthless as a coronavirus mask or an airport x-ray machine.

The absolute destruction of this once-great American institution will forever be the legacy of Robert Mueller, James Comey and Christopher Wray.

Speaking of Creepy Joe McWifeMolester… – Here is what the corrupt, worthless press corps allowed him to get away with on Thursday:

“You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”

Who gets away with this? We are talking about one branch of the federal government fundamentally restructuring another branch, a clear violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers, yet our worthless press corps can’t be bothered to hold his or Kamala Harris’s feet to the fire and force an answer to this crucial question.

Chris Wallace didn’t really even make an effort during the first debate, and Susan Page put up only slightly more fight with Harris in the vice presidential debate. The pack of useless media sheep who follow his campaign around are too bullied by Biden’s handlers to bother to even ask the question, much less follow-up with a demand that he answer.

A few fake journalists like Jon Karl tut-tutted on their twitter accounts about Biden’s latest dodge, but that’s just a lame effort to burnish their “objectivity” credentials, and has no real meaning.

If Biden and Harris get to Election Day without having provided a direct answer to this crucial question for or society, it will possibly represent the single largest failure of journalism in American history.

But then, it’s a dead profession, so why would we expect anything different?

Speaking of dead professions, there’s the U.S. Congress. – I’m old enough to remember when congress actually wrote bills, passed laws, authorized actual appropriations and stuff like that. Those were the days, huh? Yeah…good times, good times.

Anyway, after two decades of communist Democrat “leaders” like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, it has become difficult to understand exactly what the real function of the House and Senate even are anymore. They’ve only passed an actual budget one time in the past 15 years or so; neither house really attempts to lead on any issue of public import; and the only new “laws” we find ourselves subjected to these days come to us in the form of unconstitutional edicts from governors and extra-constitutional decisions by the courts.

Other than passing a couple of massive, China virus-related stimulus bills mid-year, pretty much the only thing the House of Representatives has done during 2020 is to pass meaningless, posturing resolutions like the one condemning “Q” last week, or maybe it was early this week, I forget which.

The other favorite communist Democrat tactic is to introduce bills for purely political effect that they know will not go anywhere. Today, San Fran Nan will stage such an event for her willing press accomplices in which she and Cong. Kamie Rasikin will introduce a bill to remove President Trump under the terms of the 25th Amendment:

Image

Yeah, that’s not how the 25th Amendment works, folks, but the corrupt news media will play along like it’s something serious nonetheless, because that is the role it plays for the communist Democrat Party.

So tiresome.

Finally, talk about your unwanted outreach, there is this little gem from Newsweek, discussing a recent statement from Vladimir Putin about his correct belief that Russian communists and the Democrat Party have a lot of “shared beliefs.”

From the Newsweek story:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has attempted to mark a positive resemblance between Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Soviet communists in a wide-ranging interview with the Rossiya TV channel, released Wednesday as the 2020 vice presidential candidates prepared to debate.

The president said the Kremlin would be open to working with whoever sits in the Oval Office in 2021, despite U.S. intelligence reports indicating that Russia is trying to undermine Biden in the same way it did Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

But Putin linked Biden to communist ideology during the interview. While Putin—a former party member, KGB colonel and intelligence operative—made the comparison in positive terms, his comment lines up with GOP talking points about the Biden-Kamala Harris ticket. Trump and his allies have tried to frame their opponents proposing a far-left, extremist platform dictated by the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

McConnell Should Deny the Democrats Their Judiciary Committee Circus

There is a growing debate over whether or not Mitch McConnell should discard the committee process on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee and simply take the vote to the floor of the Senate. Here’s why I support a middle ground position on that question.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no constitutional requirement for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on any nominee by the President. This is true of all positions, whether they be political appointees to run the federal bureaucracy or judicial appointees at the district, appellate and Supreme Court levels.

Here is the text of the Constitution’s Appointments Clause in its entirety:

“… and [the President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.”

Not a word in there about committees or hearings. The role of the Senate is to provide its “advice and consent,” on nominations, nothing more. That advice and consent can take any form that has the approval of a majority of current senators.

The committee process is nothing more than a construct of Senate rules and tradition. Democrats made clear they don’t give a damn about those things when Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer led the effort to end the filibuster for judicial nominees, a senate rule and tradition that had stood for well over a century. Schumer and other Democrat senators have also made clear that they plan to end the filibuster entirely the next time they gain a majority in that chamber.

So, to hell with Senate rules and traditions.

The nation’s voters have chosen to give the GOP a clear Senate majority in each of the last three election cycles, expanding that majority in 2018 after the despicable display the Democrats put on in the Judiciary Committee hearings related to Brett Kavanaugh. The corrupt news media studiously ignores the fact that each and every Democrat senator who participated in the smearing of Kavanaugh during those 2018 hearings and was up for re-election in a close race that year was defeated. It was the clearest statement of disapproval the voters could send of Democrat tactics – which included the active subornation of perjury by Christine Blasey Ford and others – that held the nation hostage for a week during those hearings.

Indeed, the Democrat conduct in Supreme Court nomination hearings has become increasingly depraved and demented related to every GOP presidential appointment since 1987, when Joe Biden – then chairman of the Judiciary Committee – led the dishonest smearing of Reagan nominee Robert Bork. Emboldened by that success, Biden-led Democrats conducted their “high-tech lynching” of Clarence Thomas in 1991, again including the active subornation of perjury by Anita Hill. Things have only gone downhill from that low moment.

If he has the votes to confirm the Trump nominee, why should Mitch McConnell allow the Democrats to put the nation and the nominee through what would certainly become another Kavanaugh-like smearing conducted by the likes of Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and Dianne Feinstein?

Some will contend that the cancellation of hearings would lead the Democrats to declare the nominee to be “illegitimate.” Well, hell, they did that with Kavanaugh. Who can forget Nancy Pelosi and Jabba the Nadler promising to impeach Kavanaugh after they obtained their House majority in 2018? We should not forget that kind of thing so quickly and easily.

Besides, Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Biden himself have already made it perfectly clear that they are going to smear the new Trump appointee as illegitimate regardless of the circumstances surrounding her confirmation. The tactic is going to be the tactic regardless of how the process is run.

With the announcements by Cory Gardner, Lamar Alexander and Rand Paul that they will support whatever confirmation process McConnell chooses to implement in the case of this nominee, it is now clear that the GOP has at least 50 votes to confirm the new justice before Election Day. Those votes, plus the tiebreaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence, are all McConnell needs to put this nominee on the Court.

So, why schedule committee hearings at all, given the short time frame and the pressing need to have a fully-constituted Supreme Court that could end up deciding the ultimate outcome of the presidential election?

Here’s why you schedule an initial hearing: To give the Democrats the chance to hoist themselves on their own petard. Democrats have all sorts of tools under Senate rules to try to delay the process. McConnell should work with Chairman Lindsey Graham to quickly schedule an initial hearing, and at the same time make it crystal clear that he will simply bring the nomination to the floor of the Senate if Democrats try to delay that process. Give them one chance to conduct themselves with the dignity that used to be expected from a U.S. senator, but give Graham the full authority to adjourn the process the moment the Democrats inevitably begin their effort to smear the nominee.

When that happens – and it would happen – McConnell should then immediately schedule a floor vote and deny the Democrats their circus.

Yes, the howls of outrage from the Democrats and their media toadies would be loud and fierce, but they are going to be loud and fierce regardless. This nomination and confirmation are an exercise in political power. For once, McConnell and his GOP caucus should exercise that power with no quarter given to their Democrat “friends.”

Monday News Roundup: More Biden Health Questions, Dems Drop Vote By Mail

This would explain so much about 2020. – Ok, so, follow along with me here…

Sunday, Joe Biden said 200 million Americans had died from the China virus. That’s 200 MILLION dead Americans.

About a year ago, Biden said that 150 million Americans had died from gun violence. Now, we’re up to 350 MILLION dead Americans.

The total population of the United States is roughly 330 million.

This means we are all dead.

Insults that have left you more confused than offended from Reddit | Metro News

This is not at all surprising, but it really is terrifying for the future of our country. – If you missed the book-promoting powder puff interview of H.R. McMaster by the terminally insipid Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes last night, here is the only 30-second clip you really need to see:

What Mr. McMaster reveals in this clip is that there is a clique of seditious bureaucrats inside the Trump Administration that has worked hard for the last 3 years and 8 months to overturn the results of the 2016 elections. These people – and McMaster is one of them – really do believe they are the “elite” in our society and that they, not elected officials, have a divine right to run the country.

For his own part, McMaster spent his entire time as National Security Advisor undermining President Trump’s policies and stacking the NSA White House staff with Obama loyalists like Eric Ciaramella. Which is why he thankfully did not last very long in that job.

Speaking of clips you need to see… – Check this out, as San Fran Nan has a Dementia Joe Biden moment during a Sunday interview on ABC’s “This Week”:

Seriously, it’s like somebody just hit the reset button on the side of the robot, and it started all over again.

Is there not a single leader in the Democrat Party who is not senile? I mean, other than the completely crazy ones like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Here’s one more clip you should see this morning. – Watch as the Unfrozen Caveman Nominee becomes completely, absolutely winded after walking about 60 feet:

What is that? It’s reminding of this clip, his famous “move it up” episode when he was using a TelePrompter while pretending to answer questions:

Completely out of breath, red in the face, and he’s just sitting there with no real physical exertion. Is this a by-product of some medication he’s taking? Taken together with his obviously advancing dementia, it’s all very distressing.

Oh, what the hell, we’ll just do clips today. – Here’s another clip you need to see to help gain an understanding of just how dishonest America’s community of “historians” really is. This is leftist “historian” John Meacham, explaining how Republican plans to follow the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution is actually a “violation” of the Constitution:

Meacham, of course, is a highly-paid “contributor” to rigidly leftwing MSNBC. Obviously, when it comes to this “historian,” money really talks.

The Democrat “vote by mail” scam is coming up a crapper. – That’s become increasingly obvious as the conservative alternative media works overtime to expose the scam for what it is. Now that their plan to steal the election has been subjected to a little sunlight, Democrat leaders over the past week have taken to urging their supporters to vote in person. Here’s AOC as an example:

Remember, it was just a couple of weeks ago that the entirety of the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda was focused on brainwashing voters to believe that the China Virus made it just too darn dangerous to vote in person. So, what’s changed?

Well, what’s changed is that the scam has been exposed for what it is, and the GOP has geared itself up to police the vote-counting process, especially in Democrat-controlled states and counties. Thus, the party is now suddenly urging its voters to get out and vote in person.

Make no mistake about it, though, the Democrats will still do everything they can to steal elections via “vote harvesting” wherever leftwing judges have ignored existing laws to claim it is “legal”, as has happened in Pennsylvania and Michigan. But the GOP and Trump Campaign have hired a raft of lawyers and poll workers to police those situations as well.

So, if you’ve been wondering why the “vote by-mail” intensity in the media has dropped off dramatically over the past 10 days or so, now you know.

Excuse the interruption there. Andrew Napolitano just came on “Morning With Maria” and I had to find the remote so I could switch channels.

Now, where was I?  – Oh, yeah, the riots. This sad event happened over the weekend in Portland, aka Riot City USA:

Tragic.

Meanwhile, the Democrat-sponsored riots raged on in the city:

Biden Predicts 2/3rds of U.S. Population Will Die Today, and Other Sunday Hilarity

After taking the day off on Saturday – the day after the death of leftist icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg – Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Bumbin’ Joe Biden was allowed out of his basement by his guards, er, “campaign staff” so he could go read a speech in front of a pretend audience. To no one’s surprise, all manner of hilarity and deception ensued.

No, I am not making that headline up. – In yet another failure to properly read his TelePrompter, the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Nominee predicted on Sunday that “It’s estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk.”

No, really, that’s exactly what he said:

Honestly, how many data points do we need for everyone to figure out that this guy is in advanced dementia? You can talk all you want to about Biden’s propensity for gaffes, but this is just not something anyone in their right mind actually says out loud. It just isn’t.

The honest truth is that if Joe Biden were to win this election and become president, we would all be far more likely to die in a nuclear holocaust because Gropey Joe McNastyFinger mistook the nuclear launch button for the flusher on the Oval Office toilet than we would be of dying from some virus. This simply cannot happen. Not even in the year 2020.

Liars, damn liars and any random Democrat. – In the same speech spoon fed to him by his elder-abusing handlers, Biden made this false claim:

President Trump has in fact been challenging Biden for months to be open and honest with the American people about the kind of radical leftwing lunatics he would be willing to appoint to the courts. Every word out of Joe Biden’s mouth is an outright lie, even though he personally isn’t aware of most of it. Every. Damn. Word.

And of course, once he had finished rublin’ stumblin’ bumblin’ his way through his dishonest speech to a fake audience, Biden fled the scene without objection from any of the assembled fake reporters:

Meanwhile, Democrats on Twitter are pointing at Rahm Emanuel and screeching “HERETIC!!!!!” – That’s because the former Chicago Mayor had this to say on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday morning:

Man, is he off the dementia reservation.

In other Despicable Democrat news, San Fran Nan refused to rule out mounting another fake impeachment hoax as a means of preventing President Trump from filling the Supreme Court vacancy:

It just don’t get no more despicable than that, folks.

Or does it? – With Amy Coney Barrett at or near the top of the list of potential Trump nominees, let’s all remember how disgusting Dianne Feinstein and other Democrats assaulted her for her religious beliefs during her confirmation to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals:

That might be even more despicable than Pelosi. Hard to tell, though, since it’s such a high bar.

Let’s close with another bit of unintentional comic relief, this time provided by the walrus-like Michael Moore:

Someone should really let Mr. Moore know that a government shutdown would not apply to the ongoing work of congress.

Holy crap.

“16 to 20 THOUSAND” cars. Incredible.

Obviously, they’re all non-essential employees. – Speaking of stuff you could never make up, New York City’s Big Doofus, communist Mayor Bill de Blasio, announced on Wednesday that he is going to put his entire staff – including himself – on furlough starting October 1 amid a budget crisis that he himself has created.

Thus does the Mayor of America’s largest city summarily declare himself and his entire staff to be non-essential employees of the city. I swear I do not make this stuff up:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has furloughed the entire mayor’s office, including himself, amid a multi-billion dollar budget crisis in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“As of October 1, every mayor’s office employee will be taking a furlough—and that obviously includes myself,” de Blasio said during a Wednesday morning press conference. “This is a step you never want to see for good, hard-working people.”(RELATED: ‘He’s A Commie’: Lisa Kennedy Blasts Bill De Blasio Over Support For Defunding Police)

The furlough of 495 staff members, including the mayor’s wife, is expected to save roughly $860,000 between October 2020 and March 2021, according to the New York Times.

The mayor continued, “The folks who work here, throughout this crisis, they have not been working 35- or 40-hour weeks. They’ve been working 80-hour weeks, 90-hour weeks, 100-hour weeks, because they believe in this city and they’ve been fighting for all of you. So it is with pain that I say they and their families will lose a week’s pay.”

“We have to make tough choices to move this city forward and keep our budget balanced,” he added.

Currently, New York City has a $9 billion budget over two year period with city already having cut $7 billion, according to the mayor. De Blaiso is also seeking billions in federal aid to help avoid having to lay off thousands of government workers. 

[End]

Get that last part? This is all theatrics designed to help San Fran Nan support her effort to force all of us out here in Flyover Country to fund a multi-trillion dollar effort to bail out “Blue” cities and states all over America that have been horribly mismanaged by her fellow Democrats, of whom de Blasio is the huge, gandly poster child.

If this first act fails to generate the needed momentum in congress, the Big Doofus’s next step is going to be an outright layoff of thousands of city employees. He is already projecting that next move to come. Being a communist Democrat, de Blasio will of course focus those layoffs disproportionately on the city’s police and fire departments, because that is the kind of depravity that Democrats always resort to in their efforts to maximize the pain on the general citizenry.

If that second act fails to convince congress to bail him out, de Blasio’s third act will be to start completely shutting down parts of the city economy and infrastructure that would negatively impact people in other states, like the city’s port facilities, roads and airports. You may think this is all quite crazy; but if you do, you don’t understand how the depraved Democrat mind works.

This is all very predictable and highly transparent. Now that you know the script, you won’t have to bother watching the rest of the Big Doofus’s play.

Another Schlichter masterpiece at Townhall.com. – Kurt Schlichter is one of  the funniest and most incisive conservative commentators working today. The piece he published at Townhall.com on Wednesday, laying out a likely process by which the depraved Democrat Party will shed itself of a President Biden shortly after inauguration day, should be required reading for everyone.

It is interesting to me that there are some Democrats who still believe that the obviously impaired and declining Biden is fully in charge of his own campaign and capable of serving 4 or 8 years as POTUS. These are Democrats who should probably have their own brains examined.

As Schlichter points out in passing – and Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse lays out in great detail this morning – Kamala Harris became Biden’s running mate not because Biden wanted her, but because the Democrat establishment forced her onto the ticket. Why? Because Harris was the choice of the Obama wing of the Party to be the presidential nominee when the nominating process began. Biden only became the Party’s chosen one after Harris’s own campaign came up a crapper last November.

And here’s the thing: The Party leaders went to Biden precisely because they all know he is incapable and will have to be removed shortly after taking office. By putting Harris on the ticket with their Unfrozen Caveman Nominee, the Obama wing ultimately gets the president they wanted all along.

Anyway, Schlichter’s piece is a quick and hilarious read, and if you want all the gory details, you should check out Sundance’s essay as well.

Speaking of Dementia Joe… – The Trump Campaign released a fantastic, devastating ad yesterday focused on Biden’s need to rely on a teleprompter even during his rare press events:

“How far will they go to hide the truth?” As far as they can get away with, because that’s what Democrats do.

For those who obsess over polls… – Here’s the most current finding of the poll that most accurately predicted the outcomes of the last two presidential elections:

Understand this: The Democrats also understand that all of these media based Trump voter depression polls are not real, just like we do. A great example is a poll published yesterday that “finds” that Biden has a lead in Minnesota of … wait for it … 16 points. Literally nobody believes that to be in any way a legitimate finding. That poll and polls like it are published for one reason: to depress and suppress Trump voters in Minnesota, to portray voting for Trump as a lost cause in that state. No other reason for it.

The Democrats and their corrupt media toadies bash Rasmussen incessantly despite its long history of accurate findings precisely because it’s a polling operation they can’t control. They do the same thing with the Trafalgar Group, the other most accurate polling outfit in 2016.

Democrats not only can’t handle the truth, they actively hate the truth. In a world that runs on truth, they cannot win, because their entire philosophy is based on a foundation of lies.

Is the Rasmussen poll’s finding of Trump pulling ahead right? Maybe, maybe not. But that poll is worth paying attention to precisely because the Democrats hate it so deeply.

That is all.

Queen Nancy Personifies the Democrat Party’s Contempt for Ordinary Americans

So, why do we care where Queen Nancy gets her hair done? – The answer to that is simple, isn’t it? It’s because she has been one of the loudest Democrat voices over the last six months lecturing the little people of America to stay locked up in their homes and only venture out when wearing a mask. She’s been one of the most ardent fans of the lockdowns mandated by despicable Democrat governors like her step-nephew Gavin Newsom, putting millions of little people out of work and shuttering hundreds of thousands of businesses.

Even worse than her act of intentionally violating nephew Gavin’s lockdown/mask orders on Sunday by intimidating a single mother salon owner to open her shuttered business just for her decripit, stringy mane was Queen Nancy’s response to getting caught. She couldn’t lower herself to do the simple thing: To admit her wrongdoing and ask to be forgiven. Instead, she haughtily claimed at a press conference to having been “set up” and demanded that the salon owner she had intimidated apologize to her.

Nancy Pelosi says her visit to a hair salon was a 'setup' - Los Angeles Times

This would seem a small matter were it not so perfectly emblematic of the dismissive stance taken towards ordinary Americans not just by Queen Nancy and her despicable fellow Democrats, but many Republicans who fester in the DC Swamp as well.

It is a sad fact of America’s current state of being that, aside from President Donald Trump, several members of his cabinet and senior advisory staff and a handful of members of congress, almost the entirety of the District of Columbia has become hostile territory. About 95% of the national news media is supportive of that contempt for the American people. Even worse, the Democrat Party funds two different domestic terrorist groups – Antifa and BLM – whose operatives travel the country burning and looting vast swaths of Democrat-controlled cities at will, knowing the Democrat mayors will not allow the police to properly deal with them.

Here’s a prime example of these terrorists acting with impunity in Washington, DC just a few hours before this was written:

The police can’t act because the Mayor won’t allow it. The Mayor isn’t home, so she couldn’t care less about the disturbance and threat these thugs are creating for her neighbors. You think you’re safe in your home because your town has ordinances that designate this to be criminal behavior? Better check to see which political party your mayor is affiliated with, because you might be surprised to discover exactly how unsafe you really are.

The Democrat Party also has an online army, the social media outrage mob that attacks, doxxes and cancels anyone the Democrats point their gnarly fingers towards. The single mother salon owner, Erica Kious, made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show last night. She told Carlson that Nephew Gavin’s lockdown order has caused her to lose 60% of her clients and most of her stylists and that her business is dead.

Even worse, she told Carlson that she will have to leave San Francisco after being attacked by the Democrat outrage mob on social media with the most vile and disgusting kinds of death threats imaginable.

It’s a disgrace. This is behavior that no civilized society should allow, but that’s the whole point: The Democrat Party is working hard to ensure that America loses its status as a civilized society.

See, it would be impossible to “transform” a free nation of 330 million people who exist as a cohesive unit, a people who share common values, a common outlook and common goals. It is far, far easier to foment a Marxist-style revolution within a population that is completely divided among itself, shares no common values or goals and is already assaulting one another online and actively attacking one another in the streets.

Every goal the Democrat Party has pursued over the past half-century has been designed to divide the American population along class, race and religious lines. They’ve used education policy for this, they’ve used tax policy for this, they’ve used civil rights policy for this, they’ve used housing policies and healthcare policies, immigration polices and foreign policy for this. Hell, they’ve even used energy and environmental policy to advance their divisive goals.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi now believe that they are on the cusp of consolidating that half century of hard work in this year’s election. Her contempt for and hostility towards Erica Kious is just the manifestation of the way she feels towards all of us.

In their path stands a single obstacle: Donald J. Trump. He’s it. He is all the rest of America has.

You give this woman a majority in the House and Joe Biden/Kamala Harris in the White House, you will not enjoy the result.

That is all.

WINNING ALERT: Dow 29,000, NASDAQ 12,000, S&P All-Time High, Pelosi Angry

Just thought a little good news was in order here. Today, in response to continuing positive economic news and growing optimism about President Donald Trump’s re-election chances, the stock market rocketed skywards into new record territory.

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'MARKET ACTION DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS (.DJIA) 29,004.51 358.85 (+1.25%) S&P 500 (.SPX) 3,570.42 43.77 (+1.24%) NASDAQ COMPOSITE (.NCOMP) 12,021.49 81.82 (+0.69% FOXI MARKETS BRUSH OFF DISAPPOINTING ADP NUMBERS DOW BUSINESS AS MARKETS OPENED AT ALL-TIME HIGHS 29,005.24 1:05P MT CLAMAN COUNTDOWN NAS 12,021.46 81.79 +0.69% 359.58'

The NASDAQ shot over 12,000 for the first time to reach a new all-time high. The S&P 500 closed at 3,581, also a new record close.

Meanwhile the Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 455 points to close above 29,000 for the first time this year, finishing the day at 29,101. The Dow has now regained 98% of its losses early this year, and is within 400 points of its all-time record close.

The Trump economy just will not be held back.

Recognize that this massive growth has been achieved with despicable Democrat governors in states like New York, California, New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania and else where keeping their economies shut down for no reason other than cynical attempts to influence the outcome of the November elections. Sadly, they have been joined by a handful of Republican governors in states like Alabama, Arizona and Ohio in those efforts.

But no matter, the Trump economy just shrugs them off like flies on a horse’s rump, and keeps on moving ahead.

Meanwhile, in other wonderful news, Queen Nancy Pelosi put out a statement today claiming she was “set up” by the hair salon owner – who is a single mother, no less – she actually intimidated into opening on Sunday. Taking no responsibility for not knowing the current state of COVID restrictions mandated by her own step-nephew, Dictator Gavin Newsom, she said the salon owed her an apology for causing her office to be inundated with complaints:

Here’s the deal, folks: Queen Nancy is lying through her dentures about all of this. She is, without question, the very worst person in this country.

Wednesday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson outs Fredo Cuomo and Trump Goes to Kenosha

Is Fredo Cuomo in trouble at CNN? Don’t bet on it. – President Trump issued this tweet targeting brother of mass-murdering Governor Andrew Cuomo, Fredo Cuomo this morning:

The President is referring to a segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight last night, in which Carlson aired a part of a recorded conversation between Fredo and his very good friend, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. In that recording, Cuomo profanely complains about constant harassment from reporters about allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him by fellow employees at CNN and in his prior position at ABC:

I won’t do a transcript of this since I try to keep this blog rated PG-13, but the basic plot here isn’t really all that incriminating for Cuomo. He doesn’t admit to actually being a serial harasser of women; he just complains that women he works with are apparently constantly complaining about him being a serial harasser of women.

I spent 40 years in the corporate world without ever having a single co-worker lodge any such complaint against me. Those of you who have spent time in the corporate world will know that the men you have seen on the receiving end of such complaints are exactly the men you would have expected to see on the receiving end of such complaints. Sexual harassment allegations are seldom any big surprise to the people in the office.

But no one should expect CNN to have the organizational integrity to even properly investigate Fredo, much less level any disciplinary action against him. CNN is, after all, nothing more than a Nazi-style propaganda operation, and the Nazis never were real big on protecting women’s rights.

Speaking of secret recordings… – Here is leaked video of Queen Nancy during her illegal visit to a shuttered hair salon on Sunday:

This is why it was imperative for President Trump to visit Kenosha, Wisconsin. – President Trump flew to Kenosha on Tuesday, and all the corrupt news media could find to hyperventilate about was the fact that he did not pay a visit to the family of Jacob Blake, the career woman-abusing criminal who was justifiably shot by the Kenosha police a couple of weeks ago. The President said he had attempted to reach out to the family, but backed off when they said they would not meet with him without their money-grubbing lawyer present.

But visiting Jacob Blake’s family – who are pursuing every angle to profit from the incident – was not in any way the purpose of the President’s visit. The purpose of the visit was far more intelligently focused than that. By having the TV cameras follow him around the city, the President forced the corrupt news media to capture images of the utter devastation visited on the town by Democrat-paid rioters who came into Kenosha from all over the country to loot and burn it.

Images like this one:

Image

And this one:

Image

And this one:

Image

By taking the time to take the corrupt reporters on a tour of the city, Trump forced them to show their audiences conclusively that vast swaths of Kenosha now resemble Dresden, Germany after the fire bombings of WWII. It was the only way any images like this would ever air on CBS, NBC or ABC.

Oregon law enforcement officials push back on communist Gov. Kate Brown. – In case you missed it, communist Democrat Oregon Gov. Kate Brown released her fancy new plan for dealing with the 98-night-long riots in Portland on Sunday. That plan is as, well, stupid as the despicable Governor herself, which, when you think about it, is exactly what you’d expect.

Comrade Kate’s big idea is to take sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement personnel from  Washington and Clackamas counties and the city of Gresham and send them into the increasingly violent, out of control fray that she and her comrade Mayor Ted Wheeler have allowed to build in the state’s largest city over the past three+ months.

The reaction from law enforcement officials in those other jurisdiction was entirely predictable and appropriate. From a story at The Blaze:

In no uncertain terms, the sheriffs slammed the plan and said they would not send their officers to Portland.

Clackamas Sheriff Craig Roberts advised Brown that more resources will not solve the problem in Portland — only policy change can provide the desperately needed solution.

According to Roberts, Brown never contacted him about sending his deputies to Portland.

“I was surprised to read that the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office was part of the plan since the Governor’s Office never contacted me,” Roberts explained. “Had Governor Brown discussed her plan with my office, I would have told her it’s about changing policy not adding resources. Increasing law enforcement resources in Portland will not solve the nightly violence and now, murder. The only way to make Portland safe again, is to support a policy that holds offenders accountable for their destruction and violence.”

[End]

Although Brown and her fellow communist Democrat governors around the country think they are dictators with absolute authority, they aren’t. You shouldn’t expect to see Comrade Brown’s plan put into action anytime soon, or ever.

Meanwhile, the Portland riots rage on. – Democrat-sponsored rioters continued their efforts to destroy Portland for the 98th consecutive night, as Comrade Wheeler apparently told his police to stand down again.

Here are some of the lowlights, courtesy of real journalist Andy Ngo:

The rioters congregated at Comrade Wheeler’s condo building again on Tuesday, at one point setting a fire in the lobby. This has the communist Democrat contemplating a relocation:

Queen Pelosi Visits Shuttered Hair Salon for a “Blowout”

Queen Nancy the Beast needed her hair done. Unfortunately, she found herself at home in San Francisco, safely ensconced behind the massive security wall surrounding her palatial estate. The problem was that San Francisco is in California, a state where Dictator Gavin Newsom is keeping the salons closed for no real reason other than politics. Plus, Newsom has decreed that one must – MUST, I say – not venture out into public without wearing a mask, which Queen Nancy doesn’t like to do. Unless, of course, there is a virtue-signaling reason to put one on for the TV cameras, because Queen Nancy does love her virtue signals.

What to do, oh, what to do?

But fear not, for Queen Nancy is privileged. Why, she’s even special – just ask her. So special that Dictator Newsom is her nephew, if only by marriage, but that’s special enough to intimidate most Californians. Even California business owners who own a salon that is officially closed.

And so it was that on Sunday afternoon, when Queen Nancy really, really, really needed a “blowout”, whatever that might be, she contacted a hair stylist to demand that she meet her at the shuttered salon where she used to work – you know, when she was allowed to work by Dictator Newsom – and restore her gnarly, decrepit hair to its former glory, or to as much glory as it can muster these days, which isn’t much.

The poor stylist knew she had little choice, given all the damage Queen Nancy and her step-nephew could to to her life if she refused. So she got permission from the shocked salon owner and met Queen Nancy at the salon, where this ensued:

And thus it was that Queen Nancy had her personal need fulfilled while her step-nephew, Dictator Newsom, ensured that the little people of California remained suffering with bad hair.

This concludes your Despicable Democrat Fairy Tale for today.

Pelosi Admits the Obvious: Biden is too Addled to Debate Trump

And there it is. – In one of her frenetic, shaky press appearances this morning, San Fran Nan Pelosi told reporters what everyone already knows is the Biden Campaign’s strategy: “I don’t think there should be any debates.”

The corrupt, civil-war-fomenting Speaker naturally couched her contention in all the standard talking points we have heard from other Democrats in recent weeks:

“I do not think that the President of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody sh… an’ uh’…s…has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts.”  Yada yada yada, blah-blah-blah.

*sigh*

They’re so transparent at this point that it is really painful to listen to them anymore.

Look, there aren’t going to be any real debates, folks, just take that for granted. And by ‘real debates,’ I mean a debate in which both men stand together on the same stage for 2 or 3 hours and field questions from corrupt media moderators. That’s as ‘real’ as presidential debates have ever been in this country, after all.

Joe Biden’s elder-abusing handlers know their guy is not mentally capable of engaging in even that kind of stilted and slanted forum. Hell, they refuse to risk letting the guy out of his basement for more than a few moments two or three times a week.

Biden is at this point so diminished that his people and his corrupt media toadies declared it a major victory that he was able to get through reading a 22-minute speech last week without drooling or telling more stories about his swimming pool exploits with Corn Pop. There is not a single chance in all of hell that they are going to allow him to participate in a traditional debate with the President.

Thus, we see San Fran Nan in her insipidly stupid and dishonest way starting up the drumbeat for a coordinated messaging campaign with her media pals to try to brainwash the public that it somehow does not need or deserve any such events this year.

If that drumbeat of propaganda fails to brainwash enough Americans, then we will see the Biden camp start using COVID-19 as an excuse to stage the “debates” in a way that does not have both men on the same stage, doing it all remotely in a way that will allow Biden to wear an earpiece and have access to a telelprompter kept hidden from the cameras. After all, we do know he is at least capable of reading and behaving as a human parrot for at least 22 minutes at a time.

Trust me on this – that is what is coming. Biden will never – can never – stand up to a real debate with Donald Trump, and literally everybody knows it at this point.

That is all.

Democrats are Projecting Their November Plans – All we Have to do is pay Attention

The masks are coming off in droves now, folks. – The radical left is just coming right out and telling you what they have planned for you now; they are no longer even trying to shield it. All you have to do is pay attention.

Yesterday was a field day in these terms, as leftist luminaries from Don Lemon to Nancy Pelosi to the Pantsuit Princess herself spewed out their hate rhetoric towards President Trump and anyone who supports him completely unfiltered.

Don Lemon, a high priest of the Nazi-style chaos cult that is CNN, had this to say about you in a conversation with fellow high priest Fredo Cuomo:

Here’s a clip from that story at The Blaze:

During the conversation, Lemon shared his unvarnished thoughts on the tens of millions of Americans who support the president.

“If I had a real friend, who was involved in a cult, which I feel it is cultish behavior, I must try to help them,” Lemon said, comparing those who support the president to blind followers of a cult. “And you can only go so far until you say, until you reach bottom, I cannot deal with it. It’s like an addiction. Until you reach bottom and you want help, I can’t deal with it.”

“Here’s how I feel about this,” he continued. “I don’t care about whether you’re right or left. I’ve been right — I was a young Republican — and left. I am an independent now. And I am an independent thinker, and I believe in reality. I believe in facts. I believe one plus one equals two. And so, when I’m talking to people who, [are not] smart but, who think they are smart … then, I have to — I got to let you go.”

Lemon then suggested that a type of intervention is necessary before Trump supporters are allowed to vote.

“[Trump] lies to people and they believe it,” he said. “And so, what is that? Cultish behavior. And I think a lot of people need to be deprogrammed, right now, before they cast their next ballots.”

[End]

For the record, Don Lemon is a programmed cultist who spent the last four years pushing the “Russia collusion” lie and still pushes it; he has spent the last year pushing the Ukraine impeachment hoax and still pushes it; he has spent the last 3 years pushing the Charlottesville “really fine people” lie, and still pushes it; he pushed the Obamacare “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” lie for 8 long years; he pushed the Benghazi coverup for four solid years. He’s spent the past couple of weeks pushing Nancy Pelosi’s post office hoax. The list goes on and on.

Indeed, Don Lemon happily pushes every lie that the DNC tells him to push because the daily talking points memo from the DNC is his scripture, it is his religious dogma and he, like Fredo and everyone else at the Nazi-style CNN chaos cult, is a true believer.

Lemon’s remarks amount to a clear case of a cultist’s projection, plain and simple.

Speaking of projection, watch as San Fran Nan Pelosi calls President Trump and anyone who supports him “domestic enemies,” and  “enemies of the state.” Not kidding:

From a story at the Washington Times:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ratcheted up the revolutionary rhetoric on Monday by calling President Trump and his allies “domestic enemies” who must be ousted from the White House.

The California Democrat warned MSNBC viewers that Mr. Trump’s opposition to a sudden push for mail-in voting systems was tantamount to a Constitutional crisis.

“We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the lawmaker continued. “And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.”

The Republican’s “GOP War Room” YouTube channel immediately reacted to appearance by calling it “unhinged.”

“Let’s just get out there and mobilize, organize, and not let the President deter anybody from voting,” Mrs. Pelosi added. “Support the postal system, which is election central. They’re doing everything they can, suppress the vote — with your actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this. It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state.

[End]

So, if you oppose to the communist Democrat Party’s plot to steal the November elections via a mass mail-in voting system that will be easy to subvert, you – not the Democrats plotting to steal the elections – are an “enemy of the state.”

That, friends, is projection on a grand scale.

But wait, there’s more!

But Wait! There's More! - Billy Mays - quickmeme

Now, let’s talk about Hillary Clinton, the Pantsuit Princess, the Fainting Felon, the Coughing Crook, the Grasping Grifter who has spent the last 38 years corrupting and looting every American institution on which she has been able to lay her gnarly hands.

Just as she and her communist Democrat cronies and their corrupt toadies in the news media did in 2016, they have all been ramping up the drumbeat over the past few months claiming that President Trump will not be willing to concede the election on November 3 should he lose. This was an outright lie in 2016, and a clear and obvious case of projection given that the Hacking Hag has spent the last four years refusing to concede the clear results of the election, in which she was thrashed convincingly in the only measure that matters, the Electoral Vote.

Since around May, they have all ramped-up this false drumbeat against the President again, its purpose to disguise their own plan for creating as much chaos around the election as possible, thus giving Joe Biden his excuse to refuse to concede the results on Election Night.

Yesterday, the Fainting Felon just came right out and admitted it:

Hillary Clinton urged Joe Biden not to concede the presidential race if he is trailing President Trump on election night.

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year’s election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic. She told Showtime’s The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day.

Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don’t give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is,” Clinton said.

[End]

And there you have it. Set your clocks to it, folks: Joe Biden will not concede “under any circumstances” on Election Night. That is the Democrat plan. That is what is going to happen.

All these people do is project their own intentions. It’s in pretty much everything they say. All you have to do is pay attention, and take them at their word.

That is all.

Social Security Admin Punks Pelosi While Biden Punks Himself

Really and truly, folks, you just could never make these decrepit, infirm, elderly Democrats up in a million years.

In a letter sent to her House colleagues Sunday afternoon, San Fran Nan thought it would be a terrific idea to compound her lies alleging President Trump is somehow “defunding” and “dismantling” the U.S. Postal Service by refusing to pour an extra $27 billion down that particular rathole by adding the age-old Democrat hustle of scaring the old folks about Social Security.

Her letter, which is posted as a press release on her website, reads as follows, “The Postal Service is a pillar of our democracy, enshrined in the Constitution and essential for providing critical services: delivering prescriptions, Social Security benefits, paychecks, tax returns and absentee ballots to millions of Americans, including in our most remote communities.”

“Alarmingly, across the nation, we see the devastating effects of the President’s campaign to sabotage the election by manipulating the Postal Service to disenfranchise voters,” claims Pelosi. “These delays also threaten the health and economic security of the American people by delaying delivery of life-saving medicines and payments.”

[End]

In response to Pelosi’s despicably dishonest diatribe, the Social Security Administration issued a statement today noting that checks to recipients last were delivered via the U.S. mail in 2013.

Oh.

Pelosi is far, far from the only communist Democrat lying to the old folks about this matter. Here is a tweet issued by America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, on Friday:

Oh.

Let’s also note who was President in 2013, when the SSA stopped mailing checks to Social Security recipients: That would be Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Oh.

That would be the very same Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self who told a fellow communist Democrat last week that he should “Never underestimate the ability of Joe Biden to f*ck things up,” according to the far left rag Politico.

Oh.

Just like clockwork, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Handsy Farty China Joe was doing a livestream with porn star, er, pop star Cardi B early today, when this bit of hilarity happened:

Yes, friends, the communist Democrat Party is about to nominate a frail, fading, elderly dementia sufferer who does not know how many grandchildren he has. Think about that: In your own lives, have you ever known any grandfather or grandmother who does not know how many grandchildren he or she has? Excluding the Clintons, of course.

The best part about that video, though, is watching the perplexed expression on Biden’s face as he tries to figure out just who in the hell Cardi B actually is and what in the world is going on with those fingernails.

Priceless.

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

This happened on Thursday:

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

There, you done? Feel better now?

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

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

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

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

Stay tuned.

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

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

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

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

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

From a piece at KGW8 TV in Portland:

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

From a piece at Willamette Week:

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

That is all.

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.

That is all.

John Lewis got a Political Rally; Herman Cain Will get a Funeral

The Swamp holds a political rally, er, ‘funeral’ for John Lewis. – Now, you can’t go to church with more than 10 of your fellow Americans, but those who infest the DC Swamp can fill a church, ignore social distancing, and hold a political rally for a dead corrupt congressman who in his youth was a genuine champion of civil rights.

Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was there, preaching about the glories of mail-in ballots and the evils of having to have an ID when you go vote. San Fran Nan was there, half in the tank as always. Slick Willie was there, his visage increasingly that of a wraith from a horror film, which is the only way one would expect a long-time running buddy of Jeffrey Epstein to age. Hell, they even rolled out George W. Bush, who likely knew Mr. Lewis about as well as he knew me.

Because this funeral wasn’t a funeral at all: Like the “funerals” for John McCain and Aretha Franklin and George Floyd before it, this was just another chance to brainwash the public and take shots at the Bad Orange Man who isn’t part of their club. That’s all it was: a gaudy and disgusting spectacle that has become sadly typical of the Swamp in general and Democrats in particular.

See, they can all do this thing that you can’t because they’re your betters. Just like Dr. Fauci can go to a baseball game and yuck it up in the stands while he ignores his own dictates that have become such an oppressive part of your lives. They’re the elite; the segment of our society that gets to ignore all of the stuff they tell you you must do or be tossed in jail.

If you don’t believe me, just watch and learn. Herman Cain, a hero for conservatives everywhere and a truly great American, died yesterday. Let’s watch and see if he gets a nationally-televised funeral in a church filled with Swamplings. Let’s watch and see if he gets a send-off in a church filled with people, period.

What Cain has received already instead is derision from the corrupt news media. Pretty much every outlet knee-jerked to the narrative that “Cain, who refused to wear a mask, died after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 just 9 days after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa.” To the Associated Press, the New York Times, Politico, CNN, MSNBC and all of the TV networks, that is apparently the story of Herman Cain’s life in its entirety.

For those unaware, Herman Cain was born in 1945 in Atlanta, the son of a father who worked variously as a barber, a chauffeur and a janitor and a mother who worked as a maid. Hard working, great Americans. Cain himself followed his parents’ example to become a hard-working, great American in his own right.

After putting himself through college and receiving a degree in mathematics from Morehouse College, Cain served his country as a civilian systems analyst for the Department of the Navy. He then moved into the business world, where he rose to national prominence, ultimately becoming the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and the Chairman of the National Restaurant Association.

He ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, a nomination that ultimately went to the Swampling RINO Mitt Romney, with disastrous results. Cain was running a strong race until it was revealed he had had an extra-marital affair, something that would have been a badge of honor for any Democrat, but which gave the corrupt media an excuse to hound him out of the race.

There will be no nationally-televised funeral for Mr. Cain. His body will not lie in state at the nation’s capitol. He won’t have 4 or 5 separate memorial services over a span of 10 days, as did McCain and Floyd and Lewis. Al Sharpton won’t be invited to deliver an hour-long, hate-filled diatribe. The Clintons will not travel to his funeral from Chappaqua, nor the Bushes from their ranch in Texas. Obama His Own Self will not deliver a eulogy filled with messages about mail-in voting or voter ID.

Herman Cain won’t receive send-offs from those former presidents, but he did get this tribute from the current one:

Rest in Peace, Herman Cain. Rest in the knowledge that, because you are neither a Swampling nor, like George Floyd, a convenient false idol being used by Democrats to justify mass riots, your funeral will be an actual, dignified service, not a disgusting political rally officiated by the fading wraiths of the elite.

That is all.

Gerrold Nadler Presided Over a Chilling, Dark Train Wreck of a Hearing With William Barr

“Disgrace” is not the only word to use to describe the behavior of Chairman Gerrold Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee yesterday during their hearing with Attorney General William Barr, but it’s the most accurate. Other appropriate words to use to describe it would be despicable, depraved, demented, deluded, and, as Mark Levin hilariously said it, the most miserable collection of “assholes” ever to exist in the U.S. congress.

Any Republican who, after watching that proceeding, continues to refer to Democrat members of congress as “colleagues” or, as Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and all the other Senate RINOs love to say, “our friends on the other side of the aisle” needs to be defeated in their next re-election attempt. These are not your friends; they are not your colleagues, a word that demands some semblance of collegiality be present in order to be true. They are your enemies, and that is how they regard you.

Simply put, this hearing was delayed by the fact that Nadler supposedly was involved in a “car wreck” on his way to work in the morning (doubtful this is actually true), and he then presided over a massive train wreck for the rest of the day.

The U.S. system of government – the constitution, the separation of powers among three branches of the federal government, and the power sharing between the national government and the various states – is inextricably dependent upon two fundamental factors: 1) that the voters will by and large elect people of good will who love this country to become their representatives in the government; and 2) a spirit of collegiality and compromise between the major parties and factions that allow the government to get things done.

If it was not already obvious to you, then yesterday’s hearing should have shattered any doubt that Democrats have completely abandoned both of those fundamental foundations of the American Republic. After watching that spectacle of Democrat after Democrat after Democrat refusing to allow the witness to answer a question without childishly shouting “reclaiming my time” or rudely interrupting him when his answers made them look even more foolish, or even allowing the witness to take a 5 minute bathroom break after several hours of uninterrupted clown show, if you still believe that those Democrats are people of good will who love this country and have any interest in compromising their totalitarian aspirations in any way, shape or form, then you are a foolish person indeed.

John McCain, one of the most despicable RINO surrender monkeys to ever serve in the United States Congress, was fond of praising the level of “comity” that he maintained with his Democrat friends in the Senate. That was in fact McCain’s favorite word to toss out there whenever he was sucking up to Chris Matthews on MSNBC or Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

The definition of “comity” is “courtesy and considerate behavior towards others.” If McCain were alive today (has his funeral ended yet?) I would love to ask him at what point in yesterday’s hearing did he observe “comity” emitting from his “friends on the other side of the aisle?”

Yesterday was a complete abandonment by the Democrats of any further pretense of engaging in the normal functioning of the American government. It was a clear and unambiguous signal that they believe they are going to succeed in stealing the November elections and regain power, and when they do, they are going to punish anyone who has opposed them. At long last, Nancy Pelosi, one of the most evil women to ever occupy this planet, sees her end goals in sight and her minions are jumping the gun on taking her retribution.

If you are a thinking person who was shocked and disgusted by yesterday’s display, consider this: That was just one day. Under a Joe Biden presidency armed with majorities in both houses of congress and the filibuster rule having been repealed by the Democrat senate, this is what every day will look like in America. You will be under constant assault for 1,461 days. Think you will survive that? Think the country can?

These people hate you and would rather you were dead. If that is not clear to you after yesterday, then you cannot be convinced until it is too late to do anything about it.

America simply cannot be governed by these lunatics for four years and survive intact.

That is all.
