Gunslingers for Liberty: Can There Be Peace After RBG? – 9.20.20

Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here Editor’s note: Miss some of this week’s news, public policy, and politics? Stay current, keep up, and get out ahead of the pack with Liberty Nation’s Sunday News Round-up. Yeehaw! Just Another Reason to Riot Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away; RIP, RBG. How does the left celebrate her life and mourn her loss? With threats of violence, of course. Should President Trump dare to do his job and at least try to fill the vacancy, many on the left plan to – as former CNN contributor Reza Aslan put it – “burn the entire f*cking thing down.” Are these threats serious, or can we expect about as many to act as we saw move to Canada when Trump was elected? Liberty Nation’s Jeff Charles has the most likely answer: “While it seems clear that some of the individuals predicting riots in response to a potential confirmation of a new justice are engaging in hyperbole, the widespread unrest that has swept American cities over the past few months indicate that these remarks should be taken seriously. At this point, the anarchy being perpetrated by the far-left has ceased being about the death of George Floyd. In fact, it was likely never about him in the first place. … More violence may break out if the president and Senate manage to push through another confirmation. But in reality, these threats do not have teeth, as every thinking person understands that the buffoons engaging in the rioting and looting aren’t going to stop if Republicans acquiesce to their demands. Put simply, if they’re going to act like childish thugs either way, why should anyone listen to them at all?” What to Watch for There’s no reason to suspect Trump won’t move to fill this vacancy. The real question is how many of these people will make good on their threats and how that violence will be met. Supreme Court Showdown We can be reasonably sure that the president will make an appointment – he apparently plans on announcing the nominee next week. Another thing we can be sure of is that the coming confirmation battle will, as Liberty Nation’s Tim Donner put it, “make the shameful Brett Kavanaugh episode look tame.” As Tim explains: “The left will almost certainly employ whatever weapons remain in their well-worn anti-Trump arsenal to obliterate Trump’s nominee. You can bet they are already preparing the harshest of personal attacks on the most prominent names on Trump’s extensive and publicly-released list of potential justices.” They don’t really have much of a choice. The anti-Trumpers went all-out in their attempts to destroy Kavanaugh, and he wasn’t replacing an actual liberal judge. If the left fails now, they’ll give firm control of the Supreme Court to conservatives. What to Watch for There’s a potential solution for Democrats, should Trump manage to replace RBG, though it failed the last time they tried it. As Liberty Nation’s Graham J. Noble pointed out, while FDR failed in his court packing scheme, that’s the most likely route for Democrats to take once they regain power. Washington Whispers & Other Juicy Tidbits Be on the lookout for: Trump hasn’t announced his RBG replacement yet, and the court packing schemes are already being hatched. Writing for theweek.com, one author suggests that Democrats shouldn’t panic; another Trump term means at least RBG was getting replaced. Instead, he says they should recognize this for the trap it is, as the next time Dems are in power, they’ll just add justices to the court.

Pennsylvania Biden Voter Complains About Sea of Trump Flag

Joe Biden events tend to be pretty awkward in nature. His gaffes and screw ups have kept us laughing over the past few months, though. For once, this awkward moment is not his fault. He and Anderson Cooper of CNN were the hosts for the event. It did not take long for the event to devolve into a complete circus. Biden was only there to answer questions that had already been approved. We all know that he only does well when he’s given slow pitch softballs. Otherwise, he turns into a stuttering and stammering mess. A Pennsylvania Democrat had a question that was really more of a complaint but at least we got a good chuckle. We’re not even sure what the question was supposed to be, in all honesty. Near as we can tell, this was a big worry that she needed to get off her chest. Who better to confide in than Joe Biden? If they end up swiping that as a campaign slogan, we demand swift compensation. All jokes aside, it’s a moment that is well worth your time. When she said that her neighborhood was a “sea of Trump flags and yard signs”, Biden looked like someone had just told him that his best friend was dead. The gut punch that he took when he was given this information is too funny to watch. Remember the episode of The Simpsons, when Ralph Wiggum tries to make Lisa Simpson his Valentine, only to have his heart ripped out on live television? That’s what this reminded us of. The look on his face is one of pure pain. This goes against the narratives that the Democrats have been hatching as of late. They want everyone to believe that the election is already over and all they need to do is mail in their vote. The idea that the Trump supporter is an endangered species has become a very popular one as of late. We’re not sure why that would be the case when the leftists were already taught this very hard lesson during the last election. Oh, how they rejoiced at the polls! The precious polls told them that the orange man was bad and that Hillary would save them from him. Of course, they did not retain the lesson and now you have Biden on television looking like a sad puppy dog. Barack Obama may have told him that he has nothing to worry about but that’s the furthest thing from the truth. If he loses this election, the embarrassment that Hillary Clinton went through will seem like small potatoes. He’s been acting like the election is won and refusing to leave his basement for months. Kamala Harris cannot save him from every public event, as this video clearly shows. Everything has been handed to Biden, as the Democrats strive to make this campaign as easy as possible for him. Meanwhile, the sitting president has been working tirelessly to handle everything that still needs to be done. The winner is not resting on their laurels but Biden seems to think that being a former vice president holds more weight than it actually does. Election night is sure to come as a major shock to Biden. We are issuing our predictions now. We believe that Trump will be declared the winner but only on a provisional basis. From there, you will see the swindle play out in real time. They are going to claim that there are still other states that need to be counted and that’s how they are going to try to make sure that Biden wins. If we’re wrong, we’re wrong. That’s just our gut feeling at the moment. One thing is for sure: Biden was not ready for what this woman had to say and he’d better get it together. If the sight of a few Trump flags shakes him up, he’s in for a tough time going forward. [embedded content] Post navigation Previous Article Good Job Joe!

Did CNN’s Kid Gloves Make Biden a Believable Heavyweight?

Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here An 800-pound gorilla was hovering over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s Sept. 17 drive-in town hall in Scranton, PA, and everyone tuning in, whether friend, foe, or neutral, was fully aware of it. Democrats dearly needed the event, televised nationally by CNN, to send a strong signal that the soon-to-be 78-year-old former vice president, who has been plagued by loud public deliberations about his health and stamina, could stand on a stage and tackle a variety of subjects with verve and vigor. Aided by a friendly media network that handpicked the citizens asking the questions and abetted by a cooperative and unchallenging moderator, the program served as a dress rehearsal of sorts to see how Fall 2020 Biden will be able to acquit himself on a debate platform with President Trump. The messaging was mostly familiar but there were a couple of key moments that revealed Team Biden might be pivoting away from the competent professional establishment posturing it has advanced. There was also an attempted disconnect from the disastrous piggybacking on a Black Lives Matter movement that has rapidly descended into ugly violence after enjoying a summer of basking in the sunshine of unreserved big-box media and Democratic Party acclaim. Batting Leadoff: Death The evening started out with a heavy emphasis on the Coronavirus crisis that Democrats appear to believe is a major winning issue. The topic plays into the gloom-and-doom storyline Biden has been so laboriously stressing about the state of the nation under the Trump administration. It was no coincidence then that the very first question of the evening was about death as CNN host Anderson Cooper dutifully played Charon, boatsman of the dominant media underworld, transporting Biden over the River Styx into the darkness of Trump’s America. Shani Adams addressed the candidate, saying her sister had died of the Coronavirus and asking Biden what he would do to protect Americans and their jobs if he were elected president. The longtime former Delaware senator quickly took the opportunity to rip Trump for not being more assertive on mask-wearing, a particular talking point Democrats are eager to use as a hammer against the president. “[Trump] continues to think that masks don’t matter very much, although he says it, and then he has these large gatherings only with everybody around with no masks on. And it’s extremely dangerous. And so there’s a lot of people, a lot of people hurt, a lot of people not being able to see their families. A lot of people gone. A lot of empty chairs,” Biden proclaimed. Cooper then teed Biden up to further denigrate Trump. “If you were president, could you see a scenario where you downplayed critical information so as not to cause panic?” the alleged newsman asked. “Not at all,” Biden replied to the meatball query. “The idea that you’re gonna not tell people what you’ve been told – that this virus is incredibly contagious, seven times more contagious than the flu, you breathe the air, you get it sucked into your lungs – what has he done?” “If he had just acted one week earlier, he would have saved 37,000 lives” Biden asserted, citing Columbia University’s medical school as a source. “He knew it and did nothing, it’s close to criminal,” he continued. Here Comes the White Populist Democrat? The rather lengthy amount of time devoted to the Coronavirus at the town hall provides more evidence that the Biden campaign will continue to promote a Good vs. Evil framing against Trump in the weeks before the Nov. 3 vote. But there were signs of changing tactics on other fronts. At the Democratic National Convention in August, Biden’s squad featured a host of speakers representing the establishment heyday of 1988-2016, including former president Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Colin Powell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and John McCain’s widow Cindy McCain. Aging “moderate” Republican John Kasich even made an appearance to tout Biden’s ability to work both sides of the aisle in Washington, D.C. It was all part of a “return to normalcy” theme being used to paint Trump as a disruptive force that has brought chaos to America. Unsurprisingly, the narrative has not proven to be the least bit successful in a post-2016 political climate clamoring for authentic change. And so Biden road-tested a new personality on CNN’s stage, that of “Populist Joe,” the scrappy Everyman from blue-collar America. “I really do view this campaign as a campaign between Scranton and Park Avenue,” Biden said, portraying Trump as the spoiled rich kid from the big city. “All that Trump can see from Park Avenue is Wall Street. All he thinks about is the stock market … In my neighborhood in Scranton, not a whole lot of people owned stock.” Does this mean the American people will now be fed the heretofore inconceivable sales pitch that a man who was first elected to the United States Senate in 1972 and has been seated at the leading tables of political power in this nation for the past 47 years is the true populist in the race? If Democrats really wanted to take this tack against an incumbent president who captured the White House by running as a total outsider from conventional politics, why on Earth did they select the most credentialed careerist by far in their overcrowded primary field to be their nominee? Perhaps even more telling was Biden’s noticeable walk-back on the rabid clamoring for police reform in Democratic circles. “The vast majority of police are decent, honorable people,” he said in a comment that certainly could not be pleasing to BLM true believers in the party’s rank and file. He then laid out a calm, sensible approach to policing controversies that was clearly designed to tamper down Democrat rhetoric in the wake of rioting and violence that has seen police officers targeted and brutally ambushed in recent days. “We have to have a much more transparent means by which we provide for accountability within police departments,” Biden blandly uttered before vocalizing the need to teach “people how to de-escalate” in policing situations. The only de-escalation that Biden was talking about here was that of his party’s shockingly shortsighted embrace of street rioters since the death of George Floyd in late May. From there, Cooper asked Biden about white privilege. Once again, the man who has spent the vast majority of his adult life in Washington, D.C., broke into Scranton Joe mode. “Sure, I benefited just because I don’t have to go through what my black brothers and sisters have had to go through,” Biden declared before immediately moving off that subject material. “Growing up here in Scranton, we’re used to guys who look down their nose at us,” he then said. “People who look at us and think that we’re suckers, look at us and they think that we don’t – we’re not equivalent to them.” “Well, I tell you what bothered me, to tell you the truth,” he continued. “Maybe it’s my Scranton roots. I don’t know. But when you guys started talking on television about, ‘Biden, if he wins, will be the first person without an Ivy League degree to be elected president,’ I’m thinking, who the hell makes you think I have to have an Ivy League degree to be president?” The remark, of course, is factually incorrect. Biden would not be the first person without an Ivy League degree elected president. He would be the first since Ronald Reagan in 1980 and ’84 and the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter in 1976. But more significant by far was the fact that a prominent media figure spoon-fed Biden a cornerstone progressive talking point and he ran away from it and started talking like a Trump populist-nationalist. Does this quick spin away from “white privilege” as a cue for the candidate to start blathering about identity politics mean that Democrats are finally beginning to realize that racial guilt is not a winning formula in a general election? Biden would have been burned at the stake for such comments during the Democratic primary process. Acknowledging that white people don’t always have it easy is sheer heresy in today’s progressive-dominated Democratic grassroots. Yet here was the party standard-bearer ruminating on his hardscrabble Caucasian roots on a leftist cable news network. It would seem change is coming to the Democrat campaign strategy as Trump continues to rise in the polls. That leads to two questions going forward. One, is it believable? And two, is it too late? A third crucial question of the evening will play itself out over the coming weeks: Is Joe Biden truly up to the task of debating Donald Trump three times? ~ Read more from Joe Schaeffer.

Dems’ New Normal! Biden’s Private Militia, BLM, Now Attacking Trump Supporters at Their Homes

Milwaukee Black Lives Matter militants are no longer content to have their riots in the streets anymore. They have decided that they are going to start bringing their grievances directly to the front doors of Trump supporters. On Tuesday night, one of the Trump supporters was arrested for the crime of protecting their own home from these far-left protesters. This is not the first time that these angry mobs have showed up at the homes of random individuals. These arrivals have nothing to do with the protests. They are all about intimidation. There is a Facebook page entitled “Justice Tour 2020” and it outlines all of these plans. Vaun L. Mayes believes that he is Milwaukee’s answer to Malcolm X (his words, not ours) and he is sharing all sorts of personal information. Trump supporters are watching in horror as all of their information is being presented to the rest of the world without anyone bothering to intervene. The page is chock full of addresses and phone numbers. Those who are listed are going to be treated to many unwanted visitors. Mayes refers to the illegal gatherings as “protest parties”. Former Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales has also been the target of this harassment. The group is said to have already held numerous “protest parties” at his home. He was once the chief but he has since been demoted back to captain for the usage of pepper spray and tear gas against the protesters. Ald. Nikiya Dodd does not like what she is seeing. As a representative of the 5th District (where Morales resides), she believes that the protests are causing more harm than good. The threats that they are causing to public safety need to be addressed immediately. As for Mayes, the doxing and terrorism that he engages in is enough to keep the PayPal donations rolling in on his Facebook page. The Tuesday “party” took place at the home of a man who was believed to be racist. The mob used the existence of a Confederate flag to justify their visit. While we did not see any evidence of this flag in this video, the man was flying a Trump flag and an American flag. Once he held a gun up in the window to try and scare the rioters away, they called the police on him. BLM group, including children, pouring onto someone's property that they seem to be harassing after he was arrested by police. They're calling him "Probation Pete," and are celebrating his arrest. Milwaukee, WI 2/3 pic.twitter.com/WsrIaUZs0T — Kitty Shackleford (@KittyLists) September 16, 2020 The irony of the anti-police crowd using the police as a cudgel to attack people they don’t like shouldn’t be lost on anyone. Abolish the police, indeed. The police arrived and took the man away, setting off a chorus of cheers from the same crowd that had been menacing him earlier. They called him “Probation Pete” and treated his arrest like one big party. I'm still trying to figure out whose house this is. Milwaukee, WI – seems to be outside of a house who BLM is saying pointed a gun at them. The title of the video is "We still lit – This goes out to all the racist neighbors out there" so I assume it is just a local "racist" 1/3 pic.twitter.com/84X6BDQwnD — Kitty Shackleford (@KittyLists) September 16, 2020 The group that was involved in this clear antagonism even included children, which is one of the most disturbing aspects of this whole thing. Various outlets have reached out to Facebook and PayPal about the potential violations of their service agreements that are currently taking place. No one has been given any reassurances at the moment. This is a powder keg that is waiting to explode. What happens when one of these homeowners is not in the mood to merely brandishing a gun? When someone finally decides to open fire on the “party” as soon as they arrive, the mainstream media will pretend that this is an isolated incident. They are going to ignore the history of these visits and treat the person who finally loses their temper as if they are a criminal. Since the local authorities are not being given the tools that they need to put a stop to these behaviors, we won’t be surprised when we keep hearing about these stories. It’s only a matter of time before these “parties” turn ugly and we hope that someone intervenes soon. These stories are going to start to take a tragic turn before too long.

State Dept Docs Confirm Ukraine’s Burisma Paid $7 Million Bribe After Hunter Biden Joined Board

According to State Department documents that have recently been unearthed after an extended period of time, Hunter Biden was closely involved in the payment of a massive bribe. Burisma, the company that provided Joe Biden’s son with a seat on their board, is found to be responsible for the payout. They doled out a whopping $7 million to local authorities who were investigating corruption at the firm. These findings turned up a mere eight months after Hunter Biden first joined the board. United States officials who are stationed in Kiev developed the evidence. Local prosecutors were investigating the firm but as you might have expected, all of the problems went away quickly. A $7 million payment has a way of doing that. The bribe is alleged to have been paid out sometime in 2014, between the months of May and December. At least one prosecutor has been willing to confirm this. The prosecution for this case referred to the bribe as a “gross miscarriage of justice that undermined months of US assistance”. The FBI was alerted about these concerns. No one seems to know if the allegations were ever investigated in a more aggressive manner, either. That seems strange when you stop to consider the amount of money that is supposed to have changed hands here. An anecdote that is this explosive should not have been buried in older files. The conflict of interest taking place here needed to be discussed long before now. [embedded content] Whenever the Biden family is involved, the mainstream media doesn’t seem too willing to ask questions. The corruption in Ukraine was pervasive but yet, the government was willing to spend a sizable amount of time and money on a Trump investigation in the region. Biden’s corruption is staring us right in the face but the United States government continues to play stupid about it. Joe Biden even visited the country to speak out about the corruption. He demanded that a prosecutor take the time to look into the issues going on at Burisma. Was this a joke of some kind? He had to have known that his son was involved by this point in time. That’s probably why he demanded that the prosecutor be fired for the role that they played. Remember when Trump stood accused of potentially withholding aid from the Ukraine until they were willing to play ball with him? It’s a nasty bit of political theater that happens on a regular basis. If this was such a problem for the left, why aren’t they complaining about Biden, though? It’s almost like they don’t care unless they think Trump can be placed in some form of trouble. Scratch the ‘almost’ part. That’s exactly how they think. If Trump is accused, it’s definitely true. If Biden is accused, all of a sudden everyone wants a “nuanced” conversation. Biden is so sure of his ability to get away with this sort of behavior, he actually brags about it in his interviews. This is a man who knows that he is untouchable, as far as the Democrats are concerned. One day, his luck is sure to run out but he does not seem to think so. He believes that the election is already his and he is operating under that assumption. Biden wants to be able to hide in the basement for the next six weeks and still win. Trump and his campaign need to start hammering away at all of the vulnerabilities that he keeps presenting. There’s a wealth of material to choose from. [embedded content] Senator Ron Johnson is asking for answers about this matter and he wants them as soon as possible. American corruption has made it so no one knows what to expect. We are not looking forward to receiving any confirmation about this corruption. It’s just the reality of the world that we are currently living in. The Democrats want us to do as they say, not as they do. Post navigation

Political Horse Race: Whack-a-Mole Polling in Election 2020

Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here The Candidates’ Market Report The much-touted figure that comes out of the sheer mass of electoral polling is the “average of polls.” This number, presently +7.5% in favor of Joe Biden, is heard on airwaves across the nation with the added note that “this is a higher average lead than Hillary Clinton had in 2016.” By using the addendum, it appears that media pundits are trying to paint a picture of success for the challenger. But there is more to this than meets the eye. If one follows all the polls and dissects the numbers, what you find is that each time a poll comes in that shows a reduced lead for Biden, almost immediately, another poll comes out that has him with a stupendous (and frankly unrealistic) lead. For example, when Rasmussen released a poll giving Biden just a 2% advantage (2,500 likely voters with a 2% margin of error), another outfit quickly released a poll showing Biden with a 12% lead; however, this included only 823 likely voters with a 3.9% margin of error. Clearly, some polls are more equal than others. This is a pattern we see often replicated. It’s almost as if certain polling outfits are trying to maintain the “average of polls” lead by presenting unworthy data (larger margins of error, small sample sizes). As Christopher Hitchens wrote: “Opinion polling was born out of a struggle not to discover the public mind but to master it.” This Week’s Major Players Approval Ratings: Donald Trump – 51% ( + 3% ) Congress – 17% ( – 1% ) Senate Map: When it comes to presidential elections, the shape of the next Senate is often overlooked. Here’s a round-up of what the polls are saying right now: Republicans: 46 Democrats (including Independents who caucus with Dems): 46 Toss Up: 8 The states that are a toss-up include Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Of these, the latest polling indicates that each party will win four states. What the Gamblers Say As with most things, if you follow the money, you can’t go too far wrong. This is a selection of the odds for key races and events. Swing State Odds Certain states hold the keys to power in 2020. These are the states that are most likely in play and what the betting odds suggest. Florida Democrats – 10/11 Republicans – 10/11 Texas Republicans – 1/4 Democrats – 5/2 Arizona Democrats – 8/13 Republicans – 6/5 Colorado Democrats – 1/8 Republicans – 9/2 Georgia Republicans – 4/11 Democrats – 15/8 Iowa Republicans – 4/11 Democrats – 15/8 Maine Democrats – 2/9 Republicans – 11/4 Michigan Democrats – 3/10 Republicans – 11/5 North Carolina Republicans – 4/5 Democrats – 10/11 Ohio Republicans – 8/15 Democrats – 11/8 Pennsylvania Democrats – 8/15 Republicans – 11/8 Presidential Election: Joe Biden – 4/5 Donald Trump – 11/10 Kamala Harris – 66/1 Hillary Clinton – 150/1 Mike Pence – 175/1 Michelle Obama – 250/1 Kanye West – 500/1 Bernie Sanders – no odds under 500/1 The Electoral College betting is a major center for action right now. With Biden officially having the Democrat nomination, cash bettors have started placing wagers on his EC success. While almost all polling shows that Biden will win the popular vote (because that is what polling counts), the votes from individual states are what decide the presidency … and here, it is a closely run race. Both Trump and Biden are at 5/1 to win the minimum number of EC votes (270). They are also just as likely as each other to win between 300 and 329 votes. It is not until the 330 to 359 vote range that Biden makes any gains, showing 5/1 against Donald Trump on 6/1. Is it likely that polling is impacting the betting markets? Donald Trump and the Electoral College: Number of Electoral College votes awarded to Trump: 270 – 299 = 5/1 300 – 329 = 5/1 180 – 209 = 11/2 210 – 239 = 11/2 330 – 359 = 6/1 Make sure to check back next week for all the numbers that count. ~ Read more from Mark Angelides.

Smart Money Literally Betting on Trump Comeback

We are unsure what to think of this latest development. Are people trying their best to grasp at straws or is this information more meaningful than that? It’s hard to tell at the current moment. While there is part of us that expects a Biden victory come November, it’s hard to count Trump out. According to the information on hand, a major shift could take place at any time. Betting markets are not always the best indicator when it comes to political races. King Banaian feels differently. He defends their usage and believes that they are valuable indicators. RealClearPolitics has an aggregation that will provide Trump supporters everywhere with some much needed hope. Democrats may want to start hitting the panic button now. Tim Pool is a journalist who believes that the Democrats are going to be undone by the protests but its hard to see that coming to fruition. Voters are not going to be inclined to blame these issues on the president who is coming in or the president that was in office before. Trump is banking on his voters’ willingness to do just that, though. That sound you hear from Democrats? Thats them realizing they done fucked up by supporting the riots, I mean "peaceful protests" pic.twitter.com/65LjGZAJPt — Tim Pool (@Timcast) August 31, 2020 The wager markets all have Biden in the lead right now but his lead is not as commanding as the mainstream media reports would suggest. Pool and other journalists want to pin the shift on the the protesters but that doesn’t make much sense. The polls show that this did not make a difference to anyone as recently as last week. For much of the year, bettors were of the belief that the incumbent president would win. In most instances, this is the safest possible bet. Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush are the only elected presidents of the past 50 years who were unable to gain re-election. The wage markets weren’t even rattled by the COVID-19 pandemic. Once the protests erupted, these markets saw a shift. The meltdowns led to a severe reversal of Donald Trump’s fortunes. The COVID-19 crisis is also here to stay and will be a part of our lives for years to come. Anyone who is looking for a return to normalcy is not going to believe in the current president. Even during the best of times, he is not exactly known for being calm and peaceful. Bettor perceptions have changed and its time to reckon with them. If we had to guess, COVID-19 has a lot to do with it. Americans are getting used to the idea that there will be long term ramifications. At first, it seemed like the pandemic might come and go but the summer we just experienced laid waste to that idea. The Democrats didn’t even bother to touch on the riots at their national convention. Anyone who wants the riots to be the problem is engaging in wishful thinking. Trump’s insistence on “law and order” might be helping his polling numbers, however. The Republican national convention also allowed the party to provide more in depth policy explanations. This is where the Democrats were lacking in their messaging. If you’re going to bet at the moment, you have a decision to make. Are you betting with America or against it? The betting markets are starting to grasp the stakes here and of course, the American people have as well. The election is the leftists’ left chance to avoid an eight year Trump presidency. Meanwhile, the right is worried about Biden drifting further to the left if he is elected. Each side has their concerns and the terms of engagement have been set. Everyone is retreating into their ideological corners. The Biden voters seem to grasp the simple lesson that they should have learned during the last election: it is not over until it is over. The amount of pre-election gloating that is taking place this time around seems to have decreased significantly. Perhaps Trump will still have a chance to rally after all? Only time will tell.

Bloomberg Writes Big Check To Buy Florida Election for Biden

Michael Bloomberg, former New York City mayor, is perhaps best remembered for his willingness to buy the upcoming election. While this strategy did not work as well as he may have hoped, he is now trying to use his considerable bankroll to assist someone else. With Florida still hanging in the balance, he’s decided to pour $100 million into the state. These funds are supposed to improve Joe Biden’s chances of being able to become president. The buy will be taking place through the Independence USA PAC. Bloomberg is hoping that his big spending will allow the Democrats to focus on other states that still need to be won. “Voting starts on Sept. 24 in Florida so the need to inject real capital in that state quickly is an urgent need,” says Kevin Sheekey, a Bloomberg adviser. “Mike believes that by investing in Florida it will allow campaign resources and other Democratic resources to be used in other states, in particular the state of Pennsylvania,” Sheekey continued. The main concern for Biden in Florida? All of the Latino voters who have remained wholly unconvinced by all of the promises that he is currently making. Biden does have double digit support but the Democrats are especially worried about this election. Bernie Sanders is even griping about the matter. He believes that the campaign needs to reach out to New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC is supposed to be the magic bullet that will assuage all of the fears of the Latino community in Florida. Meanwhile, those who have actually engaged with the Latino population in the region know that they are very concerned about the Democratic party’s turn to socialism. We are not sure what Ocasio-Cortez could do to ease these fears when she is the one who is leading the charge. Biden and company probably realize that sending her down there is a fool’s errand at best. Bloomberg is being brought into the equation as a means of avoiding those sorts of uncomfortable conversations. Since both parties have already spent well over $300 million on advertisements in this state, what’s another $100 million or so. At this point, all of the television advertisements that Floridians are seeing have to do with Biden or Trump. Thanks to this announcement, the Trump campaign and the GOP can now focus on their own fundraising efforts. In fact, Trump has already spoken openly about the prospect of donating his own money to help with his re-election campaign. He could easily negate the $100 million that Bloomberg has put up without even thinking twice. When it comes to gaining Latino support in the state of Florida, Bloomberg is probably not the best messenger that the Democrats could have chosen. He has supported the type of measures that are “tough on crime” and Latinos have been punished in an indiscriminate manner as a direct result. These voters have longer memories than the Democrats are willing to give them credit for. “As mayor of New York City, Bloomberg used stop and frisk to unlawfully stop and harass black and Latino people,” says Raphael Agosto-Miranda. Agosto-Miranda works with an advocacy group that fights tirelessly on Latinos’ behalf. “The most affected Latin group were Puerto Ricans as they are the largest Latin American group in the city. Bloomberg has never voiced concern for the island of Puerto Rico or the politics on the island,” read an e-mail from the New York Boricua Resistance. This is the hypocrisy that the Democrats are currently engaging in and no one seems to be willing to point it out. As usual, they believe that they can fix the problem by sending in a celebrity of sorts to mollify the people they claim to be helping. Even if they are able to send in Ocasio-Cortez, there’s not much that she can do to convince the Latino population that she is not a socialist. Money can’t cure all of these ills.

It’s Open Season on Cops

Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here When two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were shot in an apparent “ambush” on Saturday, it set off a series of events that have left the nation more shaken and more divided than at any other time since the riots began. The violence itself and the anti-cop protests that followed have been swiftly condemned by politicians on both sides of the divide, yet this has not stopped certain elements attempting to play political games. Both deputies were recent graduates, a female aged 31, and a male aged 24. They were shot at close range as they sat in their squad car. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the officers “sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition.” But their ordeal and that of their families was not over. Protesters soon gathered at the hospital where they blocked entrances and began chanting “death to police,” “kill the police,” and other derogatory terms. Swift Justice President Trump has called for “swift justice,” and wrote that, “If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!” Joe Biden released a statement, saying: “Acts of lawlessness and violence directed against police officers are unacceptable, outrageous, and entirely counterproductive to the pursuit of greater peace and justice in America — as are the actions of those who cheer such attacks on.” Notably, Biden’s remarks seem to directly tie the shootings in with the lawlessness that has been plaguing American cities since the death of George Floyd. By suggesting that the attempted murders were an “unacceptable” method of pursuing “greater peace and justice,” the presidential hopeful has perhaps inadvertently linked this tragedy to the overarching unrest in the public mind. With protesters at the hospital screaming, “That’s why you’re dying one by one, you stupid f—s. Y’all gonna die one by one. This ain’t gonna stop,” and “I hope they f—— die,” there does not seem to be much effort to distance themselves from the attack. Two of the protesters were arrested at the scene: an unidentified man refused a dispersal order and later grappled with the police, and a woman, who, according to reports, interfered with the arrest. She was later identified as a journalist. Abhorrent Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, speaking on NBC, said: “There’s no place in civilized society for anybody to draw an arm and to shoot our law enforcement officers that put their lives on the line … And I won’t ever let a couple [of] voices that not only are uncalled for, but it’s abhorrent to say something like that when we have two deputies, who are sheriff’s deputies, in grave condition.” There is now a $100,000 reward for information that leads to the capture and conviction of the shooter. A Rising Tide of Violence There appears to be a growing use of violence against police officers that has spawned from the riots and protests across the country. In Chicago, officers have been warned by the FBI that 36 different gangs have entered a “shoot-on-sight” pact to open fire on any officer they see with a gun drawn and to film it. More than 700 police officers have been injured during the unrest that has rocked the nation. Chicago is facing an unheard-of number of both murdered cops, and officers committing suicide. Law enforcement leadership in cities with riots is resigning en masse as members’ ability to effectively police is stripped from them by politicians who refuse to end the carnage. Until politicians do more than just put out pithy soundbites and platitudes, it will be open season on law enforcement. And that makes everyone less safe.

Biden’s Shameless Lies: Blames Trump for Defund the Police Movement (Video)

Now that Joe Biden’s polling numbers have started to dwindle, he has decided to start lying to Americans more directly. The man is nothing if not an experienced gaslighter. He loves to tell Americans one thing and then tell them that he actually said another. When it comes to the topic of police reform, he loves to engage in this highly questionable tactic. On Monday, he pulled out his biggest whopper yet. He told the world that President Trump is the one who is all about stripping the police of their funding, not him. A reporter confronted him on the matter and instead of being truthful, he decided to pull out yet another lie. “The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump,” said Sleepy Joe. .@JoeBiden: “The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump.” pic.twitter.com/CKi51jaXOS — Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) September 8, 2020 He even referred to the president as a “pathological” liar. Those are harsh words coming from someone who is caught in a lie every time they open their mouth. “I’m the one calling for $300M more for local police, for community policing … The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump. Look at his budget. He calls for cutting police funding for local — state and local help by $400 million. Once again, he’s pathological,” Biden claimed. Biden is only trying to change his story now because the heat is on. The anti police sentiment simply isn’t as popular as it was a few weeks ago. People are beyond tired of seeing riots every time they turn on their television sets. The same Biden who claimed to be ready to strip the police of their funding recently is now singing an entirely different tune. 🚨 As crime skyrockets in US cities, Joe Biden sides with radicals by calling police “THE ENEMY” and says “YES, ABSOLUTELY” he will cut police funding. DO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FEEL SAFER? pic.twitter.com/xE2gI6Bqp0 — Marc Lotter – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@marc_lotter) July 8, 2020 His campaign has even run ads that attack the police more directly but still, he persists. No one can remember a single time that the current president attacked the police in such a way. This is a clear attempt at muddying the waters by painting the law and order candidate as a scofflaw. Biden’s latest ads are claiming that he will “condition federal funds” and create a national system of reform. Democrats spent weeks denying their unhinged party wants to abolish the police. "We're talking about abolishing the police, we're talking about abolishing ICE, and we're talking about abolishing prisons." pic.twitter.com/iVYjAA0xpB — Andrew Clark (@AndrewHClark) August 18, 2020 That sounds an awful lot like redirecting funding away from the police to us but what do we know? We just have functional eyes and ears. The Democratic delegates who spoke during the party’s convention also said that they were in favor of defunding the police. “We’re talking about abolishing the police, we’re talking about abolishing ICE, and we’re talking about abolishing prisons,” these are the exact words that they spoke. Kamala Harris and Biden have both been vocal about their support for the Black Lives Matter movement as well. How can someone voice their support for this movement and then claim to be in favor of more funding for the police in the same breath? That’s classic Joe Biden. He simply says whatever he thinks will get people on his side in that particular moment and lets the rest take care of itself at a later date. If people call him out, he just lies about what he said. Joe Biden: "Why in this nation do Black Americans wake up knowing that they could lose their life in the course of just living their life?" Joe Biden and Kamala Harris launch ad on police violence against Black Americans: https://t.co/5Xgzk6PTV5 pic.twitter.com/hTT3DaOHyV — The Hill (@thehill) September 3, 2020 It’s a pretty foolproof system, if you happen to be a fool yourself. The flip flopping is at an all time high and we still have a couple months to go. Now that polls show that Americans are nervous about turning over their nation’s policing to social workers, Biden has decided that he is a friend of the police again. He has less than zero shame and we are going to see how that works out for him come election time. The police union is going to be standing with Trump. This has to sting Biden just a bit. He’s got a fragile ego and we knew this as soon as we saw him yelling at his own supporters. Anyone who questions him on anything might as well vote for Trump, or at least that’s what he tells them. He is about to find out the hard way that there are more than a few people ready to take him up on that. Related tags : Biden dems' lies Post navigation Next Article Embarrassing!

Embarrassing! Biden Reads Prepared Staff Responses From Teleprompter During Media Press Conference

When the far-left group AFL-CIO had a recent virtual event, Joe Biden was invited to join. The event took place on Monday and exposed Biden’s level of incompetence. He was clearly struggling to speak. The man was very out of breath for some reason, too. It’s getting to the point where it is kind of concerning. This is who the Democrats wanted in their corner, though. They chose Biden out of all the other candidates, under the misguided belief that he was the best man for the job. The worst part of all is that he seemed to be struggling to read, too. He couldn’t make out what was on the teleprompter and asked a staffer to move it up for him. This is the same man who is supposed to be debating Donald Trump in the next few weeks. While Trump was undoubtedly excited to tear into Bloomberg or Sanders, he will definitely have a lot of fun with Biden. It’s probably a tie between him and Elizabeth Warren for most entertaining potential debate. Trump would have never let Warren hear the end of it. This man cannot even get through his scripted notes without having a brain freeze. How on Earth is he supposed to get through a debate under these circumstances? Trump is not going to give him time to check his notes. Biden will need to be able to speak off the cuff. When Trump sat down for an interview with Sean Hannity, he was not about to let Biden’s poor performance slide. Everyone knew that he couldn’t wait to start making fun of old Sleepy Joe and this interview did not let anyone down. The president noticed how weak and frail Biden looked. As someone who knows the importance of projecting a tough public image, these are the types of things that worry him. He let Hannity know about it, under no uncertain terms. [embedded content] “Well the media in terms of what they’re doing is actually worse than what you’re saying because it looks to me like they’re asking him a question and then he’s reading an answer off the teleprompter. Now that would mean like your friend over there, Donna Brazile. It looks to me like he’s been given the questions and he’s reading the answers. That would mean to me that the media is giving him the questions. They never gave me the questions. I’ll tell you that. It’s obvious that Joe is reading the answers off the teleprompter,” said Trump. It’s hard to argue with this assessment. Trump is not ever going to let a slight like this one go without bringing it up to anyone who will listen. This is one of the many reasons why his Twitter account is such an endless source of entertainment. Trump has zero filters and Biden is going to feel his wrath soon enough. The debates may not happen in person this year but that does not mean that Biden is going to be safe for much longer. He’s probably already looking into what it would take to have Kamala Harris handle the debates on his behalf. Biden has sent her to handle a few speaking engagements and we suspect that this would happen a lot if he were able to win the presidency. “Sorry, everyone, Kamala will be providing the address this evening, Joe was very tired and needed a nap,” they’ll say. We are already laughing just thinking about it. Joe Biden is the student who can’t pass the test, even when you provide him with a cheat sheet beforehand. The Democrats have done everything in their power to spoon-feed the election to him. There’s even been a global pandemic that has given him all the excuse he needs to hide out in his basement for the remainder of the campaign. It won’t be long before all of this luck starts to run out, though.
