Biden Did Meet with Son Hunter’s Ukraine Partners

Nolte: ‘Smoking Gun Email’ Shows Joe Biden Did Meet with Son Hunter’s Ukraine Partners

A “smoking gun email” obtained by the New York Post shows Joe Biden lied when he said he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

According to an email dated April 17, 2015, Biden, who was then the sitting vice president, met in person with Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma.

Bursima is the sketchy Ukrainian energy company that put Hunter Biden on its board and paid him a reported $50,000 a month — a month! — even though Hunter has no known energy sector experience and doesn’t speak any of the languages spoken in that country.

The date of the email is important. The meeting between Pozharskyi and the then-vice president would have taken place eight months before Biden threatened to withhold U.S. aid from Ukraine unless the country agreed to fire a prosecutor who was looking into Burisma. The prosecutor was fired.

In 2018, Biden bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations about how he got the prosecutor fired.

“I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”

And the investigation into Burisma was shut down.

“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 smoking gun e-mail from Pozharskyi reads.

This isn’t the first piece of evidence that proves Joe Biden lied when he claimed “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

 

Later last year a photograph was released of Biden on the golf course with Joe Biden, Hunter, and Devon Archer, who sat on Burisma’s board. The photo was taken in April of 2014 when Joe Biden was vice president, and just two years before Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid unless Ukraine fired the prosecutor looking into a company paying his son $50,000 a month.

Pretty obvious how this works.

Burisma puts Hunter on its board. Pays him $50,000 a month, even though he has no experience in the energy sector, even though he doesn’t speak the language. That money sure paid off. Oh, boy, did it ever. Direct access to the vice president of the United States. The very man with the juice to threaten Ukraine if they don’t fire the guy looking into the company.

And according to Biden himself, that’s exactly what he did. He threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid unless the prosecutor looking into his own son’s company was fired.

According to the Post, the emails were obtained after someone left a water-damaged MacBook Pro laptop at a computer repair shop. Whoever left it, never paid for the repair or came back to get it.

“The computer was dropped off at a repair shop in Biden’s home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the store’s owner,” the Post reports.

Also on the laptop  is 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.”

The repair shop owner could not confirm the laptop owner was Hunter Biden, but there was a sticker on the laptop from the Beau Biden Foundation. Along with he video are documents and photos that sure make it look like this was Hunter’s laptop.

The FBI seized the laptop in December, but not before the repair shop owner made a copy of the hard drive. He then gave the cop to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello.

Just this week we learned that Joe Biden’s son-in-law Howard Krein is chief medical officer for a firm called StartUp Health, an investment firm looking to invest in products to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, Krein is advising the Biden campaign on the coronavirus, a stunning conflict of interest, so stunning the far-left Politico reported on it.

Titanic ending

Biden’s Titanic ending

By Alison Tempestilli
—————————-

The declinin’ Biden saga is almost difficult to watch.

Almost, I say, because his aimless, buffoonish presence during the Obama years should have been enough to disqualify him from running for the country’s highest office to begin with.  That and the fact that he has no real convictions other than those mandated to him by the far left.

Now, with only a few weeks left of the most significant election campaign in our country’s history, he appears ever more confused and tired during poorly planned stops with a only a few planted supporters visible.  In fact, there appear to be more Trump fans at his meager rallies than his own followers.  Poor Joe can’t even count on his running mate to pick up some slack.  She’s holed up in some office with an RBG children’s book and two enormous American flags.  Watching Biden is like watching the movie Titanic.  You know what the ending is going to be, but you cannot look away from the devastation happening just before the ship’s last horrifying plunge.

Gave Their Cities to Domestic Terrorists

Former NYPD Commissioner: Democrats Gave Their Cities to Domestic Terrorists

Democrat mayors and city councils have surrendered America’s largest cities to “domestic terrorists,” said Howard Safir, former New York City police commissioner and fire commissioner, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Safir said, “It’s the Democratic cities who have basically ceded their cities to what got called ‘peaceful protesters’ but are really people who are vandals and looters, and in some cases, not only assault people but are murderers.”

Safir added, “You look at Seattle, you look at Minneapolis, you look at Chicago, and places like that where basically they have given their cities to these — what I call — domestic terrorists.”

Chicago, Minneapolis, and Seattle are among dozens of U.S. cities targeted by left-wing organizations such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Many news media outlets falsely frame law enforcement as pathologized by “racism,” Safir noted.

“The mainstream media has been pushing this false narrative that has been introduced by Antifa and Black Lives Matter that there’s a pandemic of police racism and abuse, which could not be further from the truth,” Safir remarked. “They’re just putting out false information.”

The death of George Floyd was an “aberration” falsely framed by the left as part of a pattern, Safir held.

Safir said political hostility towards law enforcement has damaged police recruitment. “Oppressive mandates” imposed by local governments on police officers in reaction to left-wing narratives have compromised police efficacy, he added.

Safir stated, “Kamala Harri — if you look at her record when she was the prosecutor in San Francisco — did not go after [violent] protesters or people who destroyed property. She went after the cops.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) advances an “anti-police mentality,” observed Safir. He added, “That’s what’s happening with the messages that are being sent by mayors and governors in these Democratic states, who are more interested in protesters than they are in the good citizens.”

Safir concluded by commenting on the impact of left-driven violent protests, riots, vandalism, and looting on minorities.

“If you look at what’s happened in these big cities, who are the victims of this vandalism and of this destruction and [these] assaults?” asked Safir. “It’s the minority communities who are being very poorly served by these protesters, and if you look at homicides across the country, what about the 5,500 black Americans who have been killed by other black Americans? Those lives matter too.”

Loony Joe Biden

Watch: Joe Biden Argues Six Times that Americans Should Not Vote for Him

For at least the sixth time, Joe Biden argued during a television interview on Monday that Americans should not vote for him.

1. A reporter from WKRC in Cincinnati brought up a recent Gallup poll that found 56 percent of respondents say they are better off than they were four years ago.

 

“So why should people who feel that they are better off today, under the Trump administration, vote for you?” Kyle Inskeep asked.

“Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t. If they think— 54 percent of the American people are better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly,” Biden responded.

In May, the Young Turks produced a montage of several times Biden snapped at voters, telling them to vote for Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump — anyone other than him:

2. When Biden appeared on MSNBC to answer for the sexual assault allegations made by Tara Reade and was asked about how voters should interpret the news, he said, “If they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”

3. “You should vote for Trump,” Biden told a man who was asking him a question during a town hall meeting.

4. In another instance, Biden told a voter, “You’ve got the right candidate in Bernie [Sanders].”

5. The Sunrise Movement, a far-left environmental organization, confronted Biden during an event and after an exchange, Biden conceded, “Then you should vote for somebody else.”

6. In another incident, Biden left a voter speechless after the man challenged him over energy pipelines.

“No, no, no,” Biden said as the man made his point. Biden finally had enough and declared, “Go vote for somebody else.”

As the man appeared stunned by Biden’s dismissal, the candidate continued, “You’re not going to vote for me in the primaries.”

“I’ll vote for you in the general if you treat me right,” the man replied.

Black Votes Matter

Black Votes Matter

By Shama Tobin
———————-

One of the untold stories of the 2016 election (buried or ignored because the media was busy with the fake Russian conspiracy) is how Hillary Clinton lost black votes — and the presidency. Let us take a look at the election results in two states, Florida and Michigan.

In 2016, Clinton won 84% to Trump 8% of Florida black votes. It’s a significant decrease from the 95% received by Obama in 2012. Had Clinton won the black votes by 90%, she would have carried the state along with its 29 electoral votes. Similarly, while Clinton won 92% of black votes in Michigan, it’s down by 3 percentage points from the 95% enjoyed by Obama in 2012. Trump carried the state by a slender margin of about 11 thousand votes, despite receiving only 6% of black votes. Clinton would have won Michigan had she managed to win 94% of the black votes. Winning Florida and Michigan would have given Clinton 272 electoral votes, enough to hand her the White House.

Over the last 10 presidential elections, Democratic candidates enjoyed an average 89% of black votes compared to 9% for Republican candidates. It’s almost a ratio of 10:1. The peak was when Obama was on the ballot in 2008, reaching at 95%. In 2016, Clinton carried 88% of black votes to Trump 8% — an 11:1 ratio.

Very few demographic voting blocs in the world show such a deep and long loyalty to a particular political party the way Black Americans to Democratic Party. It is probably one of the finest examples of identity politics. While it may be noble and essential in other aspects of life, a deep loyalty in politics could be counterproductive. It may lead to an underappreciation of their votes by the receiving party. In other words, their votes may be taken for granted, which in turn lowers its political value.

In a democracy, a vote is a currency that can translate into a bargaining power. By devaluing your currency, you are diminishing your bargaining power in the political process. It is akin to going into a negotiation table with all your cards fully exposed.

The Black Lives Matter movement can be appealing to some nonpolitical groups among the general population who are genuinely concerned about the socioeconomic welfare of other people. But in a society, the welfare of individuals and communities are not independent of public policies, which in turn, are often the product of election outcomes. That means votes do matter. Hence, those who have genuine concern for the welfare of Black Americans should also realize that how and who they vote also matter. Put it differently, black votes should and do matter.

A political election is a transaction of trust. The voters trust the legislative or executive candidates and manifest it in their votes for them. In return, the elected ones use the trust as a political capital to work on public policies to improve the lives of the people they represent or lead. However, an election is also a control check, an opportunity for voters to verify whether the elected officials misuse or disregard their trust or not. When voters allow their votes to be taken for granted, they essentially relinquish an important purpose of election as a control check. That is one of the downsides of identity politics.

Identity politics do not necessarily bring improvement to the socioeconomic welfare of the particular group of people that form the exclusive socio-demographic-political alliances. When Obama was elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2012, there was a hope among both white and black Americans that he would improve not only the race relations in America, but also the lives of Black Americans. Unfortunately, the facts show otherwise. In 2008, 9.88 million Black Americans lived in poverty. Eight years later, when Obama left office in January 2017, the number had increased to 9.96 million. Meanwhile, during the first three years of the Trump administration, the number of Black Americans living in poverty dropped from 10.0 million to 8.84 million.

Reagan won 14% to Carter 83% of Black votes in 1980. That’s the highest for any Republican candidate in the last 10 presidential elections. Some may say that Bill Clinton was the first black president. But during his campaigns in 1992 and 1996, the percentages of black votes he won (83% and 84%, respectively) were the lowest among Democratic presidential candidates in the last four decades. In this election, after the Obama effect is subsiding, the split in black votes may go back to the pre-Obama era, roughly 87% to 11% to Democratic candidate’s advantage.

Black voters made up about 13% of the country’s 233.67 million eligible voter population in 2018. The percentage will likely remain the same in this election. If 6% of black voters switch their votes from a Democratic candidate to a Republican candidate in this election, with a voter turnout of about 55%, that could result in a switch of 1 million votes. With an essentially zero-sum election because of the two-party system, that is a gain of 2 million votes, or about 1.4% of total votes, for Republicans. It’s more than enough to guarantee Trump’s re-election.

The old saying goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Unyielding, collective, and persistent loyalty to vote for the same party without rationally reexamining the party’s true commitment to its original intent is unwise. It devalues the votes and brings little progress on the voters’ socioeconomic lives. This is why more Black Americans should give a second look at the Republican Party. If it turns out the Party fails to deliver its promises, there is always the next election to correct the mistake. But at least that makes their votes much more appreciated.

Biden’s supporters

In Arizona, Biden’s supporters left something to be desired

By Andrea Widburg
————————–

People are noticing the missing crowds when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris visited Phoenix on Thursday.  Not a single person turned out to cheer on the Democrat party candidates.  None.  Nada.  Zip.  That is stunning.  Trump-supporters find this heartening when comparing this to the crowds who turn out for Trump.  However, we may be making head-to-head comparisons between the wrong crowds.  The critical metric might not be Biden crowds versus Trump crowds.  It might be Trump-supporters’ enthusiasm versus Black Lives Matter protesters’ enthusiasm — and the latter could win.

NewsNOW, at Fox, reported on a stop that Biden and Harris — traveling in their “Battle for the Soul of the Nation” bus — made in Phoenix, Arizona.  After showing a sparsely populated interior space, which is typical for Biden appearances, the report then shifted to the area outside the museum where the event was held.

What’s caught people’s attention is that there is not a single Biden-supporter outside the venue.  As the reporter on the scene says, “there’s really not much to see. … It’s kind of boring out here.”  She explains that a Biden staffer assured her that this is intentional.  The narrative is that the Biden/Harris team actively doesn’t want crowds, so they’re not telling people about their events to ensure that no more than 50 people ever show up.  The excuse is the pandemic.

Lee Smith points out that, in a way, the Biden and Harris campaign is correct that crowds are irrelevant.  They know they can’t sell an old politician who’s showing signs of dementia (possibly Parkinson’s-related?) and a young politician who couldn’t even get her own state to vote for her in the primaries.  This cross-country campaign, as much as anything, is misdirection to hide what’s really going on, which is campaign corruption across the board:

 

Meanwhile, in Miami, between 20,000 and 30,000 Trump-supporters turned out for a massive caravan — and Trump wasn’t even in town:

 

The Miami car parade was unusual even by Trump standards, but the reality is that Trump-supporters all over America turn out on boats, in cars, and on foot to show their support for Trump.  And invariably, almost no one shows up for Biden.  That’s the kind of thing that makes Trump-supporters pretty sure that the polls are lying.

But stop and think for a minute about the times Biden’s supporters were willing to show up.  They took to the streets in the tens of thousands for the Black Lives Matter marches.  That’s where the enthusiasm on the left lies.  It’s not there for Biden and Harris; it’s there for hating America, the police, and white people.

This raises the possibility that the mystifying support the polls show for Biden is also misdirection, in the same way that the Biden/Harris campaign’s bus tour is a pretense.  The pro-Biden polls may be reflecting the Democrat energy that powered the protests and riots.  That is, when pollsters call and ask a BLM household whether its votes will be for Biden or Trump, whoever answers the phone will say “Biden,” because Biden is a figurehead for the BLM vote.

If that’s the case, Trump-supporters had better not get cocky.  After all, while comparing Trump rallies to Biden rallies bodes well for Trump, comparing Trump rallies to Black Lives Matter rallies creates a different picture of voter enthusiasm.  It’s possible that enough voters who hate America so much that they’ll vote for the “not-Trump candidate.”  That would be enough to put Biden in the White House and give Democrats control over Congress.

I prefer to be optimistic and think the pollsters are making the same mistakes they made in 2016, but realism must temper optimism.  Otherwise, we risk going as crazy as the Democrats did.

Biden’s Ukrainian Connection

October 12, 2020

How to Understand Joe Biden’s Ukrainian Connection

By Alexander G. Markovsky

————————————

Joe Biden’s shenanigans in Ukraine need to be understood in the context of the business and political culture of Ukraine and the former Soviet bloc.  We must not be naïve — the Ukrainian company Burisma Holding Limited did not hire a druggie like Hunter Biden, the son of the Vice President of the United States Joe Biden, for his expertise or business acumen. It did not hire obscure Devon Archer, a managing partner of Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion private equity firm co-owned by the stepson of John Kerry Christopher Heinz, for his administrative genius, either.

Burisma expected it was hiring the principals, Joe Biden and John Kerry.  Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were just bagmen.

The arrangement is called “крыша,” which translates as “roof” in Russian. It means patronage and protection in exchange for an agreed monthly payment, often payable to a third party to ensure deniability. It is important to point out that “roof” is not just criminal jargon, it is a contract. But unlike a legal document secured by a written text, criminals operate outside the law and leave no paper trail.

“Roof” has been prevalent in the post-Soviet era in the territories of the former Soviet Union, where various entities offer protection — organized crime, police, high ranking government officials, and a few other powerful entities. The necessity for “roof” is often part of business planning. Burisma is not an exception.

In 2002, during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych, his ecology minister Mykola Zlochevsky registered Burisma Holding Limited on Cyprus. Burisma managed to secure   lucrative government licenses for gas field exploration and production to become the largest private gas company in Ukraine. De jure, the licenses for the exploration of natural resources are drafted as bilateral agreements between the government entities and private enterprises, but de facto they are unilateral and revocable grants of privileges by a president and high-ranking government officials to their cronies and supporters.

As long as President Yanukovych was in power Mr. Zlochevsky’s assets were secured from a hostile takeover. President Yanukovych was his “roof,” his protector, defender, and benefactor.  But, nothing under the sun is permanent.

In February 2014 Yanukovych was overthrown in a coup and fled the country. Zlochevsky followed him shortly. In a dramatic reversal of fortunes, Burisma overnight changed from one of the strongest to one of the weakest players in Ukrainian power politics. The recourse of the weakest was to find a new “roof” before newly-elected President Petro Poroshenko, who made no secret of his desire to add Burisma to his basket of assets, would be sworn in during June 2014.

It is not known when and who approached John Kerry and or Joe Biden, assuming the deal followed classic local customs, and what was offered in exchange for lobbing and political support. But on April 22, 2014, Devon Archer was put on Burisma’s board. On May 13, 2014, Hunter Biden himself joined the board.

On the same day, Christopher Heinz rushed to dissociate himself and the firm from what looked like an unscrupulous endeavor. He emailed Matt Summers and David Wade, two of his stepfather’s top aides at the State Department, “I can’t speak why they decided to, but there was no investment by our firm in their company,” wrote Heinz.

The passage clearly displayed that the State Department was aware of the arrangement and revealed Christopher Heinz’s concern regarding if not the legitimacy but certainty the ethics of the undertaking.

For Burisma, the impact of having Hunter Biden and Devon Archer on its board could not be overstated. It thought that it had acquired an ultimate “roof” — the Vice President and the Secretary of State of the United States of America. The hiring sent a subliminal message to Poroshenko that Burisma is protected by the US Government.

Poroshenko ignored the message. As soon as he was sworn in, he directed his prosecutor general, Vitaly Yarema, to open a corruption investigation into Burisma in order to build a case to forfeit the profitable gas licenses awarded to Burisma.

In January 2015 Yarema was replaced with Poroshenko’s close associate Viktor Shokin who continued the investigation.

By 2016 the investigation was at its pinnacle and Burisma’s management panicked. They had been contacting the State Department requesting to end the investigation. In spring 2016 Joe Biden was forced to act. He stepped in to protect his client Burisma Holding and demanded Poroshenko to dismiss Shokin. Poroshenko refused.

They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the President — Poroshenko said’ … I said, ‘Call him.’ I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a b—-. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden bragged about his accomplishment.

In a process, Biden inadvertently admitted that President Obama, if not involved, at least was aware of the shady business of his Vice President.

Poroshenko couldn’t fight the President of the United States, and Shokin was fired. At this juncture, Poroshenko decided that it is better to have a percentage of something than a hundred percent of nothing. He made a deal with Zlochevsky and his trusted man Igor Kononenko joined Burisma’s board. The vanquished enemies became allies.

Miraculously, there was no longer a need for investigation and a new prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko, “who was solid at the time,” closed the probe. There was no longer a need for Joe Biden’s services either. Hunter Biden and Devon Archer eventually resigned from Burisma’s board. Zlochevsky returned to the country. The “roof” earned its pay.

It’s a duty to own a firearm

It’s a duty for patriots to own a firearm

By Peter Skurkiss
—————————-

The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  This was true when the Bill of Rights was written, and it is still valid today.  However, in light of the left-wing-generated storm clouds over America, conservatives need an extended understanding of the 2nd Amendment.  Not only do we, the people, have a right to possess firearms, but it has become practically a duty for able-bodied patriots to do so.

Does that sound extreme?  In years past, it would be.  But not today.  The Democrats and their accomplices on the left are bound and possessed to turn America into something it never was intended to be and to do it without the true consent of the people.  They are attempting this by a blatant coup from inside.  Just look at the outrages done to overturn the last presidential election and to remove Donald Trump from office.  And despite Trump having the power of the presidency and trying to get justice, none of the plotters has been brought to justice.  None likely will, either — certainly not the big fish.  The protection these traitors to the Constitution get from those in the Deep State bureaucracy and judicial system has been too strong to break.

One of the fundamental reasons why Trump has become the target of a coup is that in the past, a coup wasn’t necessary.  The uniparty in conjunction with the corporate media gave America the choice between Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.  Perhaps now, in retrospect, this can be seen more clearly.  Think of the Republican candidates since Ronald Reagan.  There were George H. and George W. Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.  All proclaimed to be conservatives, but all were in fact globalists and members of the establishment.  None would ever think of launching America-first policies.  None would have upset Washington’s applecart.

Trump somehow broke through.  He was not Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum.  Trump was more of 21st-century version of Pat Buchanan or Ross Perot.  This panicked the uniparty and Deep State and triggered them into more overt actions.  Their weapons of choice are a lying tongue and their high positions in government.

Is voting the answer?  One hopes so.  But the Democrats have a long history of cheating in elections.  And what has ever been done about it?  Little to nothing.  As is often the case, the media cover up or downplay Democrat cheating.  In this way, the public was never enlightened to what was going on.

As bad as Democratic cheating was in the past, it is going to be epic this November.  Now the cheating is preplanned (mail-in voting, etc.) and organized on a massive scale.  An army of Democrat lawyers have even been recruited to make it harder than ever to expose cheating.  They will throw dust in the air and obscure the cheating.  Nothing is off the table in the Democrats’ crusade to get rid of Trump.

Finally, there’s the matter of the violence of  Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  This is a rebellion against the social order.  But what is worse than the criminality of these groups is that Democrat mayors, governors, and presidential candidates turn a blind eye or are making excuses for it.  If silence is consent, then the Democrat Party is fully on board and complicit with the lawlessness.

If you live along the coast and the sky looks ominous, you know a hurricane is coming, and you make preparations.  Dark clouds are over America, saying a storm is brewing.  In this environment, the patriot has several duties.  Two are to vote and to speak out.  The third is to own a firearm.  This is not just a right.  It’s now a duty.  The gun never has to be used.  Just possessing it, however, is a critical vote for freedom and the survival of our republic.

On Donald Trump

Corey Lewandowski on Donald Trump

By Elise Cooper
———————–

Trump: America First by Corey R. Lewandowski and David N. Bossie is the third book in their Trump series. It gives the reader a firsthand account of the Trump administration’s battle for the soul of America. The most critical part of the book is when it makes a case for electing Donald Trump to a second term.  American Thinker had the privilege of speaking with Corey Lewandowski.

The book devotes a whole chapter to Joe Biden. Lewandowski was asked if President Trump will focus more on the policies of Vice-President Biden. If so, considering there might not be a second debate, how will the President emphasize Biden’s desire to eliminate charter schools, appoint Ocasio-Cortez as his climate czar,  ban fracking, and appoint Beto as his Second Amendment Czar?  Corey told American Thinker, “These issues will resurface again, maybe in rallies.  There is also the need to emphasize that Biden refuses to answer if he agrees with the packing of the Supreme Court.  Regarding the list for Supreme Court Justices, Biden was supposed to release it in June, and it is now October.  He will never release it before the election, and the press never pressures him.  Also, Biden said at the first debate he was the leader of the Democratic Party, but when asked why he did not call the Oregon/Seattle governor and mayor to get out the National Guard he answered, ‘I am not an elected official.’  This is not leading.”

Will the President point out Joe Biden’s comments? Biden compared Donald Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels and accused the President of “embracing dictators around the world” saying “He’s more Castro (Fidel) than Churchill.”

American Thinker relayed what former Florida Senator Connie Mack, and author of Citizen Mack: Politics, An Honorable Calling, stated: The Cubans are very upset with Biden and they voiced their outrage.  It is not just the Cubans, but people from Central and South America.  They have been through socialism and know firsthand what it is like.  I think their outrage is beginning to show at the polls.” Lewandowski agrees wholeheartedly with Mack’s assessment.

Lewandowski also has a chapter on China.  “The President has held China accountable for the seven deadly sins.  This was outlined in our book as we spoke of their currency manipulation, flooding our markets, and property theft. People should understand China is not our friend. Prior to Donald Trump becoming President, every politician has cozied up to China.”

What does he think should be the points President Trump makes this last few weeks of the campaign? “He has a record to stand on.  The President should keep talking about how, prior to the pandemic, the U.S. had the greatest economy with record unemployment that included black and Hispanic Americans.  In fact, the press never calls Joe Biden out for being a racist.  He recently said on Twitter the reason he is able to stay home is because some black woman ‘stocked the grocery shelves for him.’  Let’s not forget his comment earlier, ‘if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.’ He asked an African-American reporter if he was on crack because he did not like the question, and while a senator he referred to black American males as ‘predators.’ This goes into his thinking. The media never covers this because there is a bias for Joe Biden.”

When Biden referred to only President Trump’s rich friends getting a benefit from the coronavirus relief bill why didn’t the President respond forcibly? “He understands that small business owners are hurting. So are wage earners who are unable to make a living because of a Democratic governor’s policies.  Recently, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s policies are unconstitutional and illegal. But Biden has said he will listen to unelected bureaucrats to decide when and how long this country will be closed for.”

He concluded, “This book is about President Trump’s success.  It shows how the President put Americans first.  Joe Biden had 47 years to fix America’s problems and has failed.  What makes anyone think that he could fix the problems in the next four years?  People have to decide what direction this country should go in. Leaders lead and Donald Trump is a leader.”

This is one of the most critical Presidential elections.  Americans need to decide what issues are important to them and as Corey said, “put aside the President’s rhetoric and look at his record.”

I’d Crawl Over Broken Glass To Vote For Him Now

I Didn’t Vote For Trump In 2016, But I’d Crawl Over Broken Glass To Vote For Him Now

I don’t care about the tone of his tweets nor if his opponents think he’s rude. I’ve seen that he is a patriot who genuinely loves the United States of America and its people.

By David Sound,  9, 2020

Even though I had voted for every Republican presidential candidate since 1980, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016.

Many Republican nominees had been huge disappointments to me, and I wasn’t going to vote for yet another GOP candidate I thought would betray my trust. I couldn’t imagine Trump as a genuine conservative who would champion limited government, respect individual freedom and liberty, and protect the unborn — but was I ever wrong. Although I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, I would crawl over broken glass to vote for him in 2020.

In 2016, I was convinced Trump was just another New York liberal. On election night, however, I smiled. I was happy that at least Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be president, and I suspected that the next four years with Trump would at least be entertaining.

The primary reason I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 was that I didn’t believe him. I didn’t trust that he would be pro-life, a non-negotiable issue for me. His bluster and bravado didn’t appeal to me. I took him literally but not seriously, in contrast to his supporters who took him seriously but not literally (credit to Peter Thiel for identifying this significant distinction).

By the time Trump took office, I was willing to give him a chance. He was the president, after all, and deserved the opportunity to prove himself. During the first year of his presidency, I was impressed by his commitment to keeping his campaign promises, unlike most politicians. By the end of 2017, I classified myself as a Trump supporter because of what he had already done as president.

Trump’s list of first-term accomplishments has been truly impressive:

  • Building the strongest U.S. economy in my lifetime through historic business and personal tax cuts, resulting in millions of jobs created and record-low unemployment
  • Cutting federal government regulations that had a stranglehold on American business innovators and entrepreneurs
  • Confronting China’s trade abuses and negotiating fair trade deals with Canada, Mexico, South Korea, and Japan
  • Eliminating the Obamacare individual mandate
  • Rebuilding our military through investments in our defense capabilities as well as securing the largest military pay raise in a decade
  • Nominating and confirming more solid conservative circuit court judges than any other first-term administration
  • Nominating and fighting for the confirmation of two originalists, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court and then nominating Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • Moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and then brokering the Abraham Accords peace deal between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain
  • Consistently fighting Democrats to build the wall to secure our southern border, reinforcing and repairing hundreds of miles, with more construction on the way

This is just a brief summary of the Trump administration’s accomplishments. In addition, Trump has been the most pro-life president in U.S. history. He has promoted a culture of life in his domestic policies, by supporting pro-life pregnancy centers, creating the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, supporting health workers’ conscience rights, and working to defund Planned Parenthood.

Trump has upheld the same objectives in his foreign policies, such as through the Global Health Assistance Policy and by ending funding for the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund. In January 2020, Trump became the first U.S. president to attend and address the March for Life.

The Trump administration’s accomplishments have been in spite of relentless, daily attacks by the mainstream media, which act as the Pravda-like arm of the Democratic Party. Trump Derangement Syndrome is evident every day on television and online.

Then as details about SpyGate were revealed in early 2018, I became a full-throated proponent of Trump, incensed that the Obama administration colluded with Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and legacy media to weaponize the federal government intelligence and law enforcement agencies against an opposition party candidate and then a sitting president. When the Russian collusion hoax didn’t work, Trump’s enemies tried to take him down with fake impeachment charges over a legitimate phone call with a new Ukrainian administration.

As president, Trump has largely kept his promises and fought against relentless opposition. I don’t care about the tone of his tweets nor if his opponents think he’s rude. I’ve seen that he is a patriot who genuinely loves the United States of America and its people. I misjudged Trump in 2016, but I will do everything I can to see that he is re-elected in 2020 — and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Will Joe Biden Go Peacefully

Pollak: Will Joe Biden Go Peacefully If He Loses?

Democrats and the media have repeatedly raised the question in the last several weeks of whether President Donald Trump would leave office peacefully if he loses the election in November.

Some may actually believe their own propaganda about Trump being a “tyrant” — a point on which they agree with the knuckleheads arrested for a kidnapping plot in Michigan. Others know they are preparing a justification for pushing Trump out of office if the result is too close to call, if vote-by-mail is as messy as expected.

But the real question ought to be whether Joe Biden, the Democrats, and the media would accept a Trump victory.

They rejected it last time, and spent the last four years spinning bizarre conspiracy theories about Russian “collusion.”

Biden himself was involved, to an unknown extent in that effort. He was in the Oval Office on the day President Barack Obama was briefed about a groundless investigation into incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn — the beginning of an effort to take out Trump.

All summer long, left-wing activists have rioted in American cities during Black Lives Matter protests. Rather than condemning the violence, Democrats have tried to blame it on Trump. Biden claimed that federal law enforcement officers, dispatched by the Trump administration to save a federal courthouse from rioters in Portland, were “brutally attacking peaceful protesters.” Now he and his party claim that Trump’s rhetoric is responsible for inciting violence — even when carried out by anti-Trump anarchists.

Biden and the Democrats have even used the ongoing violence to threaten the electorate: re-elect Trump, they say, and you can only expect more of the same — from the left.

“Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” Biden said in August — after Black Lives Matter protests, backed by Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), led to riots that laid waste to the small “uptown” of Kenosha. Wisconsin. (They belatedly condemned the violence.)

In fact, Democrats have explicitly planned for widespread unrest in the event that Biden loses.

Ben Smith of the New York Times reported in August that Democrats had planned “war games” in the event of a close election. Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, playing the role of Biden, refused to concede defeat. “In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned.” The military had to step in.

On Capitol Hill, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi isn’t waiting for the election. She announced Thursday that she would co-sponsor a bill aimed at removing Trump under the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, which provides an emergency process if the president is physically or mentally incapable of doing his job.

She has also threatened to impeach Trump — again — in the next few weeks to stop him from nominating a new Supreme Court justice. She does not want to give the voters a chance to decide.

Meanwhile, Biden blames Trump’s rhetoric for the tension in the country — while he compares the president to the infamous Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. He continues to lie to the country by claiming Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people” when Trump actually said they should be “condemned totally.”

Vice President Mike Pence debunked that hoax onstage when Harris brought it up at the vice presidential debate on Wednesday night. Biden tweeted Harris’s attack — and left out Pence’s reply.

That is not the behavior of a candidate, or a campaign, that will admit defeat if and when it loses. Clinton herself said in August that Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.” The left has already recruited former military leaders to the anti-Trump cause, amid talk of using troops to march him out of the White House.

After four years of sabotage, a summer of violence, and continuing Democratic incitement, the urgent question is whether Joe Biden goes peacefully, if he loses the election.

Kidnap Plot Suspect

Gretchen Whitmer Kidnap Plot Suspect Echoed Democrats with ‘Tyrant’ Trump Rhetoric

Antifa Suspect Brandon Caserta

As Democrats attempt to blame President Trump for the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, at least one of the suspects used rhetoric progressives have repeatedly used to describe Trump as a “tyrant.”

“Trump is not your friend, dude,” Brandon Caserta said, with an anarchist flag hanging above his shoulder.

“And it amazes me that people actually, like, believe that when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant,” he said.

Caserta and five others are charged with Conspiracy to Commit Kidnap, which could bring a sentence of up to life in prison.

“There is no place for hate in America. And both of us have been talking about this for some time, about how white supremacists and these militias are a genuine threat,” Biden said alongside running mate Sen. Kamala Harris on Thursday.

“The president has to realize the words he utters matter.”

“Hate groups heard the president’s words not as a rebuke but as a rallying cry, as a call to action,” Whitmer said. “When our leaders speak, their words matter. They carry weight.”

But numerous Democrats and progressives have accused Trump of being a “tyrant,” just as Caserta did.

“Trump is a racist tyrant,” Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) declared just weeks ago.

Days later, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) referred to Trump as a “tinpot tyrant” after the president warned there could be fraud with mailed-in ballots.

When Trump suggested the 2020 general election could be delayed, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) called it “the act of a tyrant.” (The election, of course, is not being delayed.)

In 2016, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) called Trump a “wannabe tyrant.”

New York magazine deemed Trump a “corrupt, bloodthirsty tyrant” in an October 2019 headline.

In June, Jonathan Allen at NBC News published a piece titled, “Trump is playing the tyrant, because he doesn’t have the people’s consent.”

Common Dreams, a far-left website, wondered if Democrats can “landslide the criminal tyrant Trump.”

“A ‘tyrant-clown’ has destroyed my love affair with America,” Robert McCrum lamented in the UK Guardian.

In September, a Canadian woman was charged with sending the deadly poison ricin in a letter to Trump.

She, too, adopted the rhetoric of progressives in her screed.

“I found a new name for you: ‘The Ugly Tyrant Clown.’ I hope you like it,” she alleged said, according to the criminal complaint, CNBC reported.
