One more week

Can the Biden campaign last one more week?

By Stephen E. Strang
——————————

The Biden laptop scandal is the biggest October surprise in modern political history.  The Biden campaign is in crisis — and it could, and should, cost him the election.

No longer is Biden the “sweet old Uncle Joe” of days gone by.  While the 77-year-old seems more genteel at times than the 74-year-old tough-talking Trump, this isn’t about Trump being “bad” and Biden being “better.”  This is about Biden’s very big crisis — a crisis he cannot dismiss by calling it “garbage,” “a smear,” or “a set-up.”

In the midst of a bitter faceoff between President Donald Trump — who’s kept his promises as president despite fierce Democratic opposition, protected religious freedom and constitutional rights — and former vice president Joe Biden, along comes unmistakable proof that the Bidens have been involved in a deceptive web that includes selling influence and enriching the family.  Americans now have a major reason not to vote for Joe Biden.

Never mind his problematic policies on gun control, the border, and energy.  Americans don’t want the corrupt in power.  It’s that simple.  If Hillary Clinton’s foundation peddled access to her when she was secretary of state; this is much worse.  How could a compromised Biden ever stand up to countries like China and Russia, which have already paid his family millions?

While the Biden campaign may seem steady, this growing crisis has shaken its foundation.  While readers of my books know I’ve been a Trump-supporter, I didn’t see all of this coming when I wrote God, Trump, and the 2020 Election before the primaries — but this changes everything.

The proof of corruption is not only on Hunter Biden’s laptop. More allegations keep coming from former Biden business associates.  Along with Hunter Biden’s drug abuse, pornography, and worse, evidence suggests he received $1.5 billion from China for a private equity firm and an 80-percent equity stake in CEFC, the China energy company.  Emails also allegedly detail Joe Biden’s connection to the funds given his family.  In one text to his daughter, Hunter Biden wrote that he’d been “paying” for everything for the family for 30 years, “but unlike Pop, I’m not going to ask you to kick back half your salary.”

Rudy Giuliani shared a screen shot of that text on Twitter.  Giuliani, many will remember, served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and had a record 4,152 convictions, including many related to organized crime.  He called Biden “a decrepit little criminal.”

There’s more evidence against Biden.  Meanwhile, the media continue to defend Biden without examining or even trying to examine the evidence.  This is the same media that published numerous unverified attacks on Trump by disgruntled and partisan “unnamed sources” and couldn’t say the word “impeachment” enough.

It gets worse.  When Big Tech entities like Twitter and Facebook ban even the dissemination of the Biden laptop story because it looks bad for their guy, think what they will do to conservative ideas if Biden ever gets elected.  It would be far worse than Orwell’s 1984 ever depicted.

It will take time to sort through all the damning information on multiple laptops to see if criminal charges will be brought over possible bribes of foreign agents or worse.  And the laptop is now said to be connected to an FBI money-laundering inquiry.  In the meantime, we have an election — and the future of America is at stake.

There are many other reasons not to vote for Biden — including the lackluster campaign he’s run and the fact that he’s a serial plagiarist.  But for anyone still on the fence, it’s time to see the light.  This is beyond personality.  This is beyond policy.  This is about raw, base corruption.  If even 10 percent of the laptop stories are true, it’s enough to keep Joe Biden from the presidency.

If you’re stuck on Trump’s rough-around-the-edges personality, then vote against political corruption — and the scary mindset of the Deep State and the media “elites” that this Biden scandal should be censored or set aside.

It’s a very big deal.  Biden cannot be trusted.  We are better than this.  America deserves better.

A Flawed Champion

Trump: A Flawed Champion

By Ted Noel
——————

Many pundits suggest that if you haven’t made up your mind by now on your choice for President, you haven’t been paying attention. They’re largely correct, but there are some (a minority) who are paying attention and are seeing a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. (Apologies to Winston Churchill) This may be best exemplified by David French’s recent column where he quotes theologian John Piper at length. The upshot of his post is that a leader’s immorality destroys society. To that end, he cites “unrepentant sexual immorality,” “unrepentant boastfulness,” “unrepentant vulgarity,” and “unrepentant factiousness” as key markers of unsuitability in a leader.

French’s list is a #NeverTrumper’s transparent slap at Donald Trump. Historically, Trump was a womanizer. His verbal style is boastful and vulgar. He is accused of being a divider. For the one who’s not paying attention, Joe Biden’s claim that this election is about character seals the deal. Vote Biden! But we have to peel back the layers of this onion.

On the charge of sexual immorality, we must compare Trump’s ancient history with Biden’s continuing fondling of women and excuses for his son’s profligate behavior. Recent revelations point to worse. Joe keeps on keepin’ on, while Donald is notably faithful to Melania.

We’ve all heard Donald Trump’s statements about his “tremendous” company, “beautiful” buildings, and “fantastic” golf courses. Supposedly this is evidence of narcissism, a major character flaw. But pundits who have grown up near Trump in Queens recognize this a simply local style. Apparently, many people from Queens speak this way as a daily part of life. Brooklyn has a different flavor, and Indiana (VP Pence’s home) is radically different.

What about Biden? Are his statements any less dramatic? He claims to have worked across the aisle to create legislative miracles, but the only one he can cite is the 1994 Crime Bill that put large numbers of black youths in prison for trivial crimes. Trump was actually able to work across the aisle to begin reversing this evil with the First Step Act. Biden claims that he was instrumental in negotiating the Paris Climate Accords, from which Trump withdrew the U.S. But he lied by claiming his counterpart was Deng Xiaoping, who was already dead. We could go on with Biden’s “scholarship” and “degrees,” but you get the picture.

Vulgarity is one place that Donald Trump seems to have a lead on Joe Biden, but as we noted earlier, those with personal history in Queens recognize that as a verbal style he learned growing up. We should compare Trump to many of Biden’s supporters, who make Trump’s language sound like Shakespearean prose.

“Unrepentant factiousness” is, to put it bluntly, a lie. Anyone who actually works with Trump finds him to be gracious and willing to work with anyone who will work with him. But even though many of us saw him as the lesser of two evils in 2016, most have learned that he fights. And he doesn’t pick fights. Rather, he stands up firmly against our enemies in the Swamp.

Washington, D.C. isn’t called “the Swamp” just because a few blocks of it — Foggy Bottom — were originally swampland. Rather, it acts like a swamp, amorphously oozing around your footsteps, sucking the boots off your feet and then trapping you to be lunch for alligators. The administrative state has grown so large and powerful that supercomputers programmed for artificial intelligence are being pressed into service just to sort out the immense number of conflicting government rules. With such an enormous morass, it’s no surprise that many thousands of traitors may be hiding in the dark corners.

Of course, every one of those treasonous actors (does the “whistleblower” come to mind?) has friends and is capable of causing great harm. Fiefdoms have to be safeguarded from housecleaning. And favors are traded for the protection. Every perceived slight becomes fodder for some exposé that a compliant media blows up into a “scandal.” After all, they are part and parcel of the Swamp. They are the Ministry of Propaganda, and every player scrambles to be the next Joseph Goebbels.

What is Trump’s act of division? He actually stands up for America. The Swamp couldn’t care less about America. It cares about itself and where its next victim lies. But Donald Trump refuses to slaughtered or neutered. Any ordinary person would have wilted under this unrelenting pressure. But he lives by the maxim that a man is known by his enemies. If his adversaries are evil, then he is on the side of righteousness.

So in an odd sort of way, Donald Trump is a divider. But his act of division is one of exposing evil by standing for good. Now we can begin to peel back the layers of the onion. Are moral flaws disqualifying? Ultimately, the question answers itself. As the Apostle Paul notes, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23, NAS) Every president is flawed. Even George Washington, for all his greatness as a general and president, was a flawed person who owned slaves. John Adams, who was a major force behind the Declaration of Independence, was incredibly abrasive. He was thrown out of office for signing the Alien and Sedition Acts, which criminalized speech critical of the government.

Since every president has had manifest moral flaws, it must be very clear that moral flaws, by themselves, cannot be disqualifying. John Kennedy, a notorious womanizer, guided us safely through the Cuban Missile Crisis. Abraham Lincoln, who freed the slaves, did so as the result of political calculation. Barack Obama, who promised (and almost succeeded) to “fundamentally change America,” gave the order to take out Osama bin Laden.

The only morally perfect person ever was crucified because he was regarded by the Swamp of His day as an unacceptable divider. Every president and candidate for president has flaws. We have to choose based on performance, not on style. And Donald Trump’s performance has been good. His judicial nominees have been excellent. His tax cuts were wise. His reduction in regulations have unleashed businesses to create wealth for all America.

Joe Biden’s track record, in words even the Left can understand, stinks. At every turn he has grown the Swamp and taken his vig. Donald Trump went to Washington to make your life better, while Joe Biden went to Washington to make his life better. Becoming a multimillionaire without ever holding a productive job is all the evidence we need.

David French and John Piper are wrong. We can’t judge our President on public moral character. We aren’t electing a savior. We’re electing a champion.

Media Ignore Spontaneous Trump Rallies

Byron York: Media Ignore Spontaneous Trump Rallies

Byron York of the Washington Examiner has published an account of a 2,000-car-strong Trump rally in western Pennsylvania — one of dozens of pro-Trump rallies organized independently of the campaign that show the president’s support.

He writes:

It was the biggest political rally no one saw. And gatherings like it have been happening for months in some of the places President Trump needs most to win if he is to be reelected. And, remarkably, the rallies are not the work of the Trump campaign. The road rally in Washington, Pennsylvania, was organized and staged by local Trump supporters, linked together largely by Facebook, who want to show that enthusiasm for the president in western Pennsylvania and surrounding areas is not just strong but stronger than it was when Trump eked out a victory in Pennsylvania in 2016. If Trump wins this critical state, it will owe in significant part to this organic movement and the energetic organizers who have nothing to do with his campaign.

York observed that President Donald Trump’s support for fracking has mobilized supporters:

They feel so strongly about Trump because they know he has supported their industry while Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden, wanted to cripple and ultimately eliminate it. They know Trump has not miraculously saved the energy industry in Pennsylvania. They didn’t expect that he would. Their calculus was much more basic: In 2016, they voted for the candidate who would stop trying to kill the industry that supports 322,000 jobs in Pennsylvania, according to an energy industry estimate.

Now, they know a President Joe Biden would resume the green crusade to destroy the oil and gas business. On Saturday, they were all very aware that just a few days before, in the last presidential debate, Biden had vowed to “transition” the United States away from oil and gas.

York notes that while Trump supporters share accounts of caravans and boat parades on social media, they are often ignored by local news and national media.

Momentum: Trump

Momentum: Trump

By J.B. Shurk
——————

Whatever political momentum Joe Biden might have had going into the final debate, President Trump drank it right up on live TV.  By the time it was over, Old Joe looked drained and confused, and the prez stood smiling like a kid slurping up every last drop of dessert before ordering seconds.

Biden must have been thinking, “How did I get here?”  Or rather, “How is it that this guy is still kicking my butt?  I’ve got all the news corporations working on my behalf.  Facebook and Twitter are actively censoring information that makes me look bad.  The DOJ is still covering up the Russia hoax.  And the guy just got hit with the Wuhan Flu.  Why won’t he give up?”

Meanwhile, with all those campaign finance violations working in his favor, Biden still wasn’t able to avoid punching himself in the face by bringing up the Biden crime family’s pay-to-play operations in Ukraine and China all on his own.  The president had barely made mention of Joe’s unexplained wealth when China Joe started talking about Rudy Giuliani being another Russian agent hiding in plain sight.  It was surreal…and maybe the greatest stratagem ever used by one candidate to get the other to clobber himself.

Even with the information embargo being enforced by America’s “free press,” news of former Biden associate Tony Bobulinski’s spilling the beans about having personally witnessed Joe selling influence to the Chinese was breaking out into the open.  President Trump personally invited Bobulinski to attend the debate as one of his guests, and the former navy lieutenant conducted a press conference detailing the Bidens’ corrupt dealings with the Chinese just an hour before the debate’s start.

Old Joe had just taken four days off from, well, whatever his handlers have him do to memorize canned one-liners and build up enough stamina to last an hour and a half.  And after the president introduced the world to Mr. Bobulinski, you know that Joe was doing everything he could to practice and remember how to respond to the explosive corruption allegations now hanging over his head.  He surely thought President Trump would come out swinging with the news that he was a bought-and-paid-for Manchurian stooge; instead, the president quietly and calmly answered questions from the left-leaning debate moderator while barely alluding to Chinese payoffs or Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” at all.  Old Joe looked pale and distracted and disoriented, and then he just couldn’t control himself anymore and pre-emptively blurted out that there was another Russian intelligence operation out there trying to make him look like a Chinese asset.  I’ve never seen a dope hang himself so effectively on live television.

If that weren’t enough, the added pressure of having to answer for his allegedly unreported income from China seemed to be too much for Joe’s active brain cells.  He remembered to lie about not wanting to ban fracking in Pennsylvania and Ohio, but he forgot that he wasn’t supposed to endorse Bernie Sanders’s Green New Deal promise to end the oil industry over the next few years.  So fracking’s okay, but all fossil fuels must go.  Whoops!

I think Biden meant that he had no plans to ban the word “fracking,” but every intention of ending America’s use of oil, natural gas, and coal during his presidency.  “You can frack all you want, boys, so long as you’re using wind power from the heady energy days of the Middle Ages.”  Look out, America; the “progressive” party wants to drag us back to an age when cutting down forests and burning wood for heat were necessary for survival.  Nothing says “clean energy” like a hundred million campfires sending enough soot into the air to remind everyone what real pollution looks like.

Trump immediately saw Biden’s unprotected jaw and went for the uppercut.  “Basically, what he is saying is he is going to destroy the oil industry,” President Trump said calmly for effect.  “Will you remember that, Texas?  Will you remember that, Pennsylvania?  Oklahoma?  Ohio?”

It was a one-two punch that put Biden on the mat.

Chalk this one up to a lesson the Democrats should have learned back when Hillary hit her head on the glass ceiling: never bet against Trump.  Just don’t.  Save your money and go with the thoroughbred, not the candidate meant for the glue factory.  Can you imagine any other politician contracting the Chinese coronavirus, recovering, campaigning nonstop for the next two weeks, and showing up at a make-or-break debate looking healthier and more energetic than the guy holed up in his underground assisted living facility?

The Democrats always underestimate Donald Trump.  Every time they succeed in hitting him with fire, they’re too busy celebrating and gloating to realize that the president’s already taken up a position behind them and lined up his sights.  His feedback loop for learning, adjusting, and preparing for re-engagement is faster than anything the Democrats have faced.

“Momentum” is everything in the final days before an election.  It’s the secret sauce of winning campaigns, and the president might as well put his brand on the label because he owns it going into the home stretch.  The polls are trending in Trump’s direction, the economy is experiencing unprecedented growth, and Biden is hiding from a corruption scandal that proves he’s a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chinese Communist Party.

The president’s out doing five rallies a day and demonstrating to Americans that the country is stronger than China’s coronavirus, while his opponent hides away to recover from the strain of standing for ninety minutes on a debate stage.  Trump’s crisscrossing the country, running up steps like Rocky Balboa, and rallying the labor force.  Biden’s teaching a generation of mask-shaming Karens to be so afraid of their own shadows that their only reaction to leaving their basements is “we just can’t.”

One candidate is full of life and vigorously encouraging Americans to reclaim their country before local Democrat mandates kill it off for good; the other candidate has spent the entire campaign in hospice and thinks Americans should join him.

There’s no doubt which American future our enemies in China, Iran, and Russia prefer.  No wonder they have Joe’s family on retainer.

How Joe Biden Got Millions In Foreign Bribes

The New York Times and Hitler

Biden is Wrong: U.S. Didn’t Have a Good Relationship With Hitler — But the New York Times Did

AP Photo/Julio Cortez
Did the United States really have a good relationship with Adolf Hitler before he started World War II? Joe Biden made this bizarre claim during Thursday’s debate with President Trump. Trump said of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un: “North Korea, we’re not in a war. We have a good relationship. People don’t understand. Having a good relationship with leaders of other countries is a good thing.”

Biden shot back: “We had a good relationship with Hitler before he, in fact, invaded Europe, the rest of Europe. Come on.”

Come on, Joe! The U.S. didn’t have a good relationship with Hitler before he “invaded Europe. The German dictator was, however, beloved in certain quarters, including the editorial offices of the New York Times.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt didn’t attack Hitler directly before the war began, but relations between the U.S. and Nazi Germany were by no means good. In September 1938, Roosevelt sent a telegram to Hitler lecturing him about the importance of keeping the peace and stating: “The conscience and the impelling desire of the people of my country demand that the voice of their government be raised again and yet again to avert and to avoid war.” Implying that Hitler was a warmonger was hardly a hallmark of cordial relations between the two countries.

Failing to get a satisfactory response from Hitler, on October 11, 1938, Roosevelt announced that he was increasing national defense spending by $300 million (over $5 billion in today’s dollars). No one thought that money was going to build up our defenses against Britain and France.

Some in America, however, loved the Führer.

The historian Rafael Medoff recently noted that on July 9, 1933, just over five months after he became Chancellor of Germany and years after his virulent anti-Semitism and propensity for violence had become notorious worldwide, the New York Times published a fawning puff piece on Hitler that rivals even today’s media adulation of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi in its one-sidedness, myopia, and disdain for essential facts.

Pulitzer Prize-winning “journalist” Anne O’Hare McCormick traveled to Berlin to become the first reporter from an American news outlet to interview the new chancellor, and she was an intriguing choice for the Times editors to make to conduct this interview, as in the presence of this man whose name has become justly synonymous with evil, she was decidedly starry-eyed: “At first sight,” McCormick gushed, “the dictator of Germany seems a rather shy and simple man, younger than one expects, more robust, taller. His sun-browned face is full and is the mobile face of an orator.”

As if that weren’t enough, she continues with a description of the Führer as outlandish and adulatory as likening the supremely zaftig Stacy Abrams to a supermodel: “His eyes are almost the color of the blue larkspur in a vase behind him, curiously childlike and candid. He appears untired and unworried. His voice is as quiet as his black tie and his double-breasted black suit.”

McCormick labored to portray Hitler as more modest than his public persona might suggest: “In the country he has plastered with banners and insignia he wears only a small gold eagle in his buttonhole. No flag or swastika is in sight.” He is also, she signaled to her readers, reasonable and genuine: “He begins to speak slowly and solemnly but when he smiles — and he smiled frequently in the course of the interview — and especially when he loses himself and forgets his listener in a flood of speech, it is easy to see how he sways multitudes. Then he talks like a man possessed, indubitably sincere.” What’s more, “Herr Hitler has the sensitive hand of the artist.”

The intrepid New York Times reporter doesn’t seem to have asked Hitler if he had a significant other, but no one would have been surprised after reading all this if the two of them had become an item.

However, McCormick’s interview was not all about Hitler’s sun-browned face and blue larkspur eyes. In the 29th paragraph of a 41-paragraph article, she recounts that she asked him: “How about the Jews? At this stage how do you measure the gains and losses of your anti-Semetic [sic] policies?” Hitler answered, she said, with “extraordinary fluency,” and she records his answer – a tissue of victim-blaming and excuse-making – at considerable length.

Then, McCormick recounts, “seeing the second part of the question was not going to be answered, your correspondent referred to the position of women.” Ah, yes: when the interviewee doesn’t want to answer the tough question, go on to something easier. The Times and its allies today always keep this in mind when interviewing Democrats. This surrender mollified Hitler as well: “Herr Hitler’s tension relaxed. He smiled his disarming smile.”

Little did Anne O’Hare McCormick realize, as Hitler’s blue larkspur eyes twinkled in her direction and his disarming smile made her heart flutter, that all these years later, the New York Times would still be publishing puff pieces about authoritarian thugs. And old Joe Biden, as he contemplates the approaching end of the presidential race from his Delaware basement, can rest secure in the certainty that no matter what outrageously false or crazy thing he says, that same New York Times will cover for him, too.

Never Trumpers

October 24, 2020

The NeverTrumps’ dilemma

By Patricia L. Dickson

—————————-

As it began to look as though candidate Donald J. Trump was headed to clinch the 2016 GOP nomination for the presidency, a group of establishment Republicans sharpened their attacks against him.  The group consisted of establishment elected officials, political pundits, journalists, writers, and Cabinet members from former Republican administrations.  The editorial staff at the National Review Online, a highly esteemed and credible publication, went as far as to publish an entire edition attacking Donald Trump’s claim of conservatism for the most part as a scam meant to deceive the Republican base.  Despite the efforts of the GOP establishment, the Republican base stuck to their candidate and voted him in as the nominee.  It was a hard won fight that even continued all the way to the Republican National Convention.

After President Trump was sworn in and quickly began fulfilling his campaign promises as well as putting in place conservative policies, many in the Republican base thought the “NeverTrumps” would come around to supporting him.  However, no matter how many conservative policies he put in place, no matter how many conservative judges he put on the bench (including the Supreme Court), no matter how many jobs he created, no matter how well the economy is doing, nor how many peace deals he’s brokered, these individuals remain just as much against him as they were during 2016 primaries.  However, few of them have articulated to the Republican base what specific policy reasons they have for opposing President Trump.  They only repeat the same vague liberal talking points about his character, rhetoric and tweets.

Although the majority of the Republican base supports President Trump (96 percent according to the latest Rasmussen’s poll), many of the NeverTrumps have gone as far as publicly endorsing Joe Biden, the Democrat party’s 2020 presidential candidate nominee.  Some of them even spoke at the Democratic National Convention.  In fact, a few of them have formed a group called the Lincoln Project and are airing campaign ads attacking President Trump in support of candidate Joe Biden.  In addition, Cabinet members from the George W. Bush administration have also publicly endorsed Joe Biden.

In recent days, evidence has emerged on Hunter Biden (Joe Biden’s son)’s laptop that supports President Trump’s statements that Joe Biden has corrupt ties to Ukraine.  It appears that Joe Biden not only allegedly has corrupt ties to Ukraine, but also has financial ties to China.  According to Hunter Biden’s former business partner, the Biden family used Joe Biden’s position as vice president to launch business deals.  In December 2019, the Democrat House of Representatives impeached President Trump for making those statements, charging that he was trying to interfere with the election in order to take out his political opponent.  The Democrats claimed that the president was lying.  Senator Mitt Romney (the chief NeverTrump) is the only Republican in the Senate who voted to remove the president from office.  In his speech, Romney claimed, without evidence, that Joe Biden did nothing wrong.

As more evidence against Joe Biden emerges, I am wondering how the establishment Republican NeverTrumps are going to get themselves out of the dilemma of putting what reputation they have on the line to support a corrupt candidate of another party.  The fact is that these supposed Republicans could hate President Donald Trump to the point that they are willing not only to put America’s economy and national security at risk, but also to put their own reputation on the line.  If Joe Biden does not win the presidency and he is somehow held accountable for his corruption, what will these NeverTrumps have to say to the Republican base?

Trump’s Real Record on Race

Facts Matter: Trump’s Real Record on Race

By Don Brown
——————

It seems that at every debate in which he has participated, whether in 2016 or 2020, Donald Trump gets peppered with the same, worn-out demand to “denounce white supremacists.”

But based on what?  

Whether it’s Chris Wallace, or Savannah Guthrie, or Jim Acosta, some other loudmouth reporter screaming the “denounce” demand as the President walks by, this demand, premised upon a lie, gets repeated ad nauseam by dishonest journalists. Their purpose is to create a false impression that Trump has done something, or said something in the past, that makes him a “racist.”

But nothing could be further from the truth.

The president’s record shows something quite the opposite of the insinuations shouted by the Trump-hating members of the liberal media.  In fact, the president’s record, over time, pictures a man with a huge heart and great compassion and love for the African-American community in the United States.

Where to start?

February 2, 1998: Donald Trump sat next to host Jesse Jackson at a Rainbow Coalition/Operation Push “Wall Street Project.” Honoring Trump, Jackson said:

 “When we opened this Wall Street project, and we talked about it, he gave us (Operation Rainbow) space at 40 Wall Street, which was to make a statement about our having a presence there. And beyond that, in terms of reaching out and being inclusive, he’s done that too. And created for many people a comfort zone, when I ran for the presidency, in 84 and 88. When many others thought it was laughable, he came to our business meeting here in New York.”

What? Jesse Jackson praising Trump?

In 1996, per the Wall Street Journal, “Trump filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Palm Beach, alleging that the town discriminated against Trump’s property at Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans.” Trump often complained about other Palm Beach social clubs discriminating, and in one suit alleged that “the town commission sought to protect the discriminatory policies (against Jews and Blacks) of many of the town’s other private social clubs.”

A white supremacist suing to protect blacks and Jews?

As president, Trump pardoned Alice Williams, an African-American grandmother and first-time offender convicted on a nonviolent drug offense. Ms. Williams had received life in prison, under Biden’s 1994 crime bill, which disproportionately imprisoned black Americans for nonviolent offenses.

With the Congress under Democratic control from 2009-2011, and with the power to pass prison reform with full Democrat control of the Congress, Biden and Obama did nothing. They were happy to let decent, nonviolent black Americans like Ms. Williams simply rot their lives away in prison, with no hope for freedom. By their inaction, Biden and Obama showed that they did not care about Williams or other peaceful blacks in prison who deserved a second chance.

The same was true for Biden’s friends in the Democrat-controlled Congress in 2009-2011. But they weren’t interested in prison reform and could care less about helping blacks. They never have cared, and still don’t care. They only wanted the black vote.

In contrast to Obama-Biden, Trump led the charge for prison reform. Trump worked with Congress to pass the “First Step Act,” releasing many African nonviolent offenders held in the federal system.

Even Democrat Van Jones, the leftist, African-American CNN pundit and prison-reform advocate, effusively praised Trump, calling the First Step Act a “Christmas miracle.”

Jones said,

 ” … [e]very time people made a prediction that Donald Trump was going to sell us out, turn on us, wasn’t going to use political capital, he came harder… Donald Trump has got to get the credit. He stood up.”

Obama-Biden had their chance for prison reform but lifted not a finger. And Trump is the “white supremacist?”

Another Trump accomplishment ignored by Obama-Biden? Aid to black colleges.

Trump provided a substantial financial bailout to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), again, something that Obama-Biden ignored.

In the Economist on September 19, 2020, Kentucky State University President, M. Christopher Brown said that President Trump “has been beating the drum on HBCUs as a cornerstone of his education platform from month one of his time in office.”

Chrichanni Watson, a minority student at Florida A&M University praised Trump in an op-ed for Breitbart. “That (HBCU support) directly impacts us, as HBCU students, and that’s something that cannot be said for the last administration… you’ve got to give the man some credit.”

Trump gives money and Wall Street real estate to Operation Rainbow, files a lawsuit to protect blacks and Jews in Florida, then as President, passes prison reform and bails out HBCUs, and he’s a racist? A “white supremacist?”

But let’s examine another part of the record:  Trump’s multiple “disavowing” statements, responding to questions about racism, relit without end from the leftist media.

  • March 3, 2016, GOP Primary debate: Trump says, “I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke.”
  • March 6, 2016, Face the Nation: “I reject David Duke, …. I rejected the Ku Klux Klan; from the time I was five years old.”
  • August 15, 2017,  commenting on Charlottesville immediately after saying they were “very fine people on both sides,” referring to the legitimate debate about confederate statues, Trump added  “and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”
  • October 1, 2020, Fox News: “I condemn all white supremacists, I condemn the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, but I condemn that.”

Guthrie knew all this at the NBC Town Hall when she issued her “denounce” demand. But she didn’t care about the real facts, because she wanted to mislead voters. But Guthrie isn’t alone in this shameful practice. Fox’s Chris Wallace, who “moderated” the first presidential debate, also gas-lit the issue, demanding Trump “denounce” white supremacists.

When Trump denounced white supremacy, once again, in response to Guthrie’s gaslighting, here’s her response. “[i]t feels sometimes you’re hesitant to do so.”

“It feels?” That’s all you’ve got, Savannah? Feelings, not facts?

America deserves better than having gaslighting propagandists masquerading as journalists whose only aim is to help the Democrat party.

Meanwhile, even beyond his remarkable economic achievements, which led to the highest income level and lowest unemployment levels for black Americans in history, President Trump’s real record on progress in improving life for the African-American community makes him a giant among modern American presidents.

No one has done more, and no one can compare.

Facts matter.

Was Hunter Biden acting out?

Was Hunter Biden acting out?

By Peter Skurkiss
—————————

Is Hunter Biden to be pitied?  Does he deserve our sympathy?  Normally, I would dismiss such a thought as absurd except that is it being offered by no less than the Master of Insights, Rush Limbaugh.

Here’s Rush’s argument, beginning by first informing his audience he is not going soft.  Then he gets to the meat of his argument.

We don’t know the Biden family dynamics. We don’t know if Hunter had begged to get out of these arrangements. He’s got Burisma over in the Ukraine. He’s being paid mountains of money for things he’s not qualified for. He’s got this arrangement in China with the same thing. So he takes this computer with all his data on it, all this incriminating data, and leaves it at a computer repair shop and signs off on the fact that if he doesn’t pick it up in 45 days he loses possession of it. So my point is that I think exactly what happened is what Hunter wanted to happen.

Rush thinks Hunter is a “lost soul” who is desperate.  He can see the younger Biden feeling that all these corrupt entanglements he was involved in weren’t going to end well for him.  So consciously, or perhaps unconsciously, he deliberately left his laptop to be found.  And found it was, as it has been in the hands of the FBI since December.  Rush wonders, “Could this have been a way of turning on his father without actually turning on him?  I know this guy, Joe Biden, has a very volcanic temper.”

If Occam’s razor is applied to this situation, the answer might be simpler.  It could be that Hunter Biden is a pampered rich kid, who, like is father, doesn’t believe that the rules apply to him.  Add to that Hunter’s drug abuse, much of it reckless.  The guy could simply be out of control and not capable of rational thought.  To be honest, Occam’s razor and Rush’s theory can both be true.  They are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

Again, if it were anyone else other than Rush making the case for deliberate sabotage of the “Big Guy” by his son, I’d laugh it off.  But now I’ll look at unfolding events with that paradigm in mind.

Iran Has Tried to ‘Damage President Trump’

Ratcliffe: Iran and Russia Have Obtained Voter Info, Iran Has Tried to ‘Damage President Trump’

 

During a press conference on Wednesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe stated that Iran and Russia have obtained voter registration information that can be used “to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, sow chaos, and undermine your confidence in American democracy.” He also stated that Iran has sent “spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump.” And has pushed content that makes untrue claims about people casting fraudulent ballots. Ratcliffe also said that while they have not seen the same actions being taken by Russia, they have obtained voter information like they did in 2016.

Ratcliffe said, “We would like to alert the public that we have identified that two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections. First, we have confirmed that some voter registration information has been obtained by Iran, and separately by Russia. This data can be used by foreign actors to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, sow chaos, and undermine your confidence in American democracy. To that end, we have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump. … Additionally, Iran is distributing other content to include a video that implies that individuals could cast fraudulent ballots, even from overseas. This video and any claims about such allegedly fraudulent ballots are not true. These actions are desperate attempts by desperate adversaries. Even if the adversaries pursue further attempts to intimidate or attempt to undermine voter confidence, know that our election systems are resilient and you can be confident your votes are secure.”

He added, “Although we have not seen the same actions from Russia, we are aware that they have obtained some voter information, just as they did in 2016. Rest assured that we are prepared for the possibility of actions by those hostile to democracy.”
