Bad choice, Karen Bass

Sorry, Karen — it didn’t work for Bernie, either

By Silvio Canto, Jr.

We remember how praising Fidel Castro doomed the Bernie Sanders candidacy.  I’m sure you remember all of those videos of Sanders talking about Cuba and the socialist paradise.  It was enough to make many Democrats between the coasts worry about getting wiped out in November.

We may be watching how praising Fidel Castro is now destroying any chance of Karen Bass becoming Biden’s V.P. choice.  In 2016, Bass praised Fidel Castro following his death, calling him “Comandante en Jefe.”

Like Sanders, Bass is now discovering that Castro was a dictator.  She praised him before, but now she’s doing “the Miami 2-step.”

This is from her appearance with Chris Wallace:

Bass told Fox host Chris Wallace that her perspective “developed over time” and that she now understood that the Castro government “was a brutal regime.” Bass said she spoke with colleagues from Florida who raised concerns about her comments and that she “would not do that again, for sure.”

“I absolutely would have not put that statement out,” she said.

How convenient!  What a timely conversion.

My guess is that Biden will skip Representative Bass because of Florida and her leftist past.  At the same time, he committed himself to a “woman of color,” and most of them have a leftist past.

Obama Had the George Wallace Story Backwards

Pollak: Barack Obama Had the George Wallace Story Backwards

Former President Barack Obama compared President Donald Trump to George Wallace at John Lewis’s funeral last week, likening the president to one of the more notorious villains of the Jim Crow era.

Wallace was a Democrat — though he is often falsely portrayed as a Republican — who infamously stood “in the schoolhouse door” to protest the desegregation of the University of Alabama (an event portrayed in Forrest Gump, with Tom Hanks’s character inserted into the footage).

Obama recalled the march on which Lewis was famously beaten by state troopers in Selma at the Edmund Pettus Bridge. “He was warned that Governor Wallace had ordered troopers to use violence,” Obama recalled.

Later, without mentioning President Trump by name, Obama said: “George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.” (He was referring to the riots in Portland.)

Obama was wrong, of course, about “peaceful demonstrators” in Portland. But he was also wrong about Wallace, at least regarding federal troops.

The facts: a federal judge ordered that the state universities be desegregated. When Wallace threatened to stop them personally, President John F. Kennedy sent federal troops — or, more precisely, he federalized the Alabama National Guard — to ensure that the federal court’s orders were followed. Force had to be used to enforce the court’s authority.

In the present riots, Democrats are again defying the authority of the federal courts. Violent leftists have targeted the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland, Oregon, as a symbol of the federal government — and Democrats, including Obama, have supported them, including by falsely portraying a mob’s vandalism, arson, and assault as “peaceful protest.”

Until very recently, state and local authorities sided with the protesters, and so federal law enforcement had to intervene.

So Obama had the story backwards.

Adding to the irony, former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly praised George Wallace. In 1975, for example, the first-term senator said: “I think the Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace — someone who’s not afraid to stand up and offend people, someone who wouldn’t pander but would say what the American people know in their gut is right.” Biden also frequently used Wallace’s name to appeal to Southern voters.

The Wallace story itself is somewhat more complicated. In 1972, while addressing a presidential campaign rally, Wallace was shot; he would be partially paralyzed for the rest of his life. In the 1980s, he changed his views on race and reached out to black leaders — including Lewis — to ask for their forgiveness. He won election as governor again in 1983 with overwhelming black support.

That kind of reconciliation is something in which Obama, and Democrats, seem to have little interest today.

Female mud-wrestling cage match:

Female mud-wrestling cage match: Joe Biden’s delayed VP announcement has all the candidates at each other’s throats

By Monica Showalter

Apparently, Democrats just can’t play nice — even with each other.

According to this report in the Washington Post, Joe Biden’s inability to make up his mind about whom he wants as his running mate is prompting some female mud-wrestling in the slop pit of contenders:

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has extended his vice-presidential search by as much as two weeks, intensifying the jockeying and lobbying between allies of the women who hope to join his White House. Even some longtime Biden allies worry the process has become “messier than it should be,” pitting women, especially Black women, against one another.

The dynamic threatens to undermine Biden’s effort to use the vice-presidential search to spotlight some of the party’s brightest female stars during the highly public vetting process. And it’s already providing President Trump’s campaign an opening to dig up dirt and launch attacks on potential rivals.

The delay (and it’s not the first delay, by the way) seems to make them want to fight with each other.

Some of the comments are being made by high-ranking Democrats pushing alternative candidates such as Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.) and more recently Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), making some worry that women of color are being forced to kneecap one another.

“It bugs me that people want to pit these two Black women against the other,” said Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.), a key Biden confidant, referring to the burgeoning Bass vs. Harris narrative. “Nobody is trying to pit Sen. Elizabeth Warren against [Michigan Gov. Gretchen] Whitmer. And both of their names are being mentioned every day as being in the search.”

“It is messier than it should be because somebody is trying to create a story,” Clyburn added.

Well, what a pretty picture.  Kamala Harris, for one, has been reportedly planting negative stories about her rivals in the press in a bid to persuade Biden to pick her.

Apparently, they’re all doing it now, taking the ever extending time frame brought on by Joe’s indecisiveness to rake each other down like crabs in a bucket.

So much for sisterhood.  It just goes to show that Democrats always put themselves, rather than party unity, first.  The bad feelings from this debacle should get the Bernie-ites, the Clintonites, and the Obamatons all bitter at each other before this wretched spectacle is finished.

Clyburn is the one whose endorsement made addled Joe Biden, instead of, say, Kamala Harris, the nominee.  He can now thank himself for making that baby.  What the heck did he expect?

Gravity of the Russia Hoax

Understanding the gravity of the Russia Hoax

By Andrea Widburg

One of the claims Democrats love to tout about the Obama administration is that it was “scandal free.” For those who paid attention to the IRS targeting, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, and the cash smuggled to Iran, to name just a few illegal and/or immoral activities, that was always a peculiar boast. The Obama administration was up to its eyeballs in scandals. It was Obama who finally said what had really happened, which was that “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.”

In other words, the issue wasn’t that the administration was scandal-free. The issue was that the media protected the administration from voters’ wrath should they learn about those scandals.

The Russia Hoax has benefitted from the media’s continued unwillingness to report on Obama-era scandals. When it looked as if the Russia Hoax could achieve a coup against the Trump presidency, members of the press developed a form of Tourette syndrome that saw them obsessively mouth “Russia, Russia, Russia” all day, every day.

However, when Robert Mueller’s handpicked Democrat-friendly team, despite two years and 35 million dollars, was unable to find a smidgen of proof that Trump or his administration had colluded with the Russians, leftists inside and outside of the media fell silent. Sure, they’ll still raise the fact that Trump, at a press conference, said, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 [Hillary Clinton] emails that are missing,” but their hearts aren’t in it.

They know that normal people understand that Trump was making a pointed joke about the fact that the Russians, the Chinese, and every other hacker on earth had read through Hillary’s emails for years. Aside from leftists being utterly humorless, the media learned that raising this statement periodically was chum to the true believers but not very interesting to anyone else.

When it came to burying the whole Russia Hoax, the Democrats and their media lackeys were helped by the fact that the story is so gosh-darned complicated. It involved dozens of people (some genuinely bad actors and some useful idiots), several countries, thousands of pages of cryptic papers, and a dizzying timeline. It’s hard to get people who aren’t political junkies excited about something like that, and even harder to arouse them to a sense of outrage over what the Obama administration did.

And that’s where Andrew C. McCarthy’s latest column comes in. His columns are always interesting because they help explain each new revelation about the hoax. This time, though, McCarthy has opted to open with an overview of the entire scandal and why it matters. With unusual clarity, he explains how the Obama administration used the vast power of the intelligence agencies to spy on an opposition candidate and then try to commit a coup.

I’ve cherry-picked a few relevant paragraphs, but I urge you to read the whole thing. Once you’ve read it, you’ll understand why the Russia Hoax isn’t just an inside politics thing that ultimately doesn’t matter:

As I contended in Ball of Collusion, my book on the Trump-Russia investigation, the target of the probe spearheaded by the FBI — but greenlighted by the Obama White House, and abetted by the Justice Department and U.S. intelligence agencies — was Donald Trump. Not the Trump campaign, not the Trump administration. Those were of interest only insofar as they were vehicles for Trump himself. The campaign, which the Bureau and its apologists risibly claim was the focus of the investigation, would have been of no interest to them were it not for Trump.


You don’t like Donald Trump? Fine. The investigation here was indeed about Donald Trump. But the scandal is about how abusive officials can exploit their awesome powers against any political opponent. And the people who authorized this political spying will be right back in business if, come November, Obama’s vice-president is elected president — notwithstanding that he’s yet to be asked serious questions about it.


Congress’s investigation was stonewalled. The more revelation we get, the more obvious it is that there was no bona fide national-security rationale for concealment. Documents were withheld to hide official and unofficial executive activity that was abusive, embarrassing, and, at least in some instances, illegal (e.g., tampering with a document that was critical to the FBI’s presentation of “facts” to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court).


The Obama administration and the FBI knew that it was they who were meddling in a presidential campaign — using executive intelligence powers to monitor the president’s political opposition. This, they also knew, would rightly be regarded as a scandalous abuse of power if it ever became public. There was no rational or good-faith evidentiary basis to believe that Trump was in a criminal conspiracy with the Kremlin or that he’d had any role in Russian intelligence’s suspected hacking of Democratic Party email accounts.


In the stretch run of the 2016 campaign, President Obama authorized his administration’s investigative agencies to monitor his party’s opponent in the presidential election, on the pretext that Donald Trump was a clandestine agent of Russia. Realizing this was a gravely serious allegation for which there was laughably insufficient predication, administration officials kept Trump’s name off the investigative files. That way, they could deny that they were doing what they did. Then they did it . . . and denied it.

It is to be hoped that John Durham releases his long-promised investigative report sooner, rather than later. The American people need to understand just how scandalous the Obama administration and its holdovers were.

Chicago Sees 139 Percent Increase in Murder

Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago Sees 139 Percent Increase in Murder

Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago witnessed a 139 percent increase in murder during July 2020 when compared to July 2019.

ABC7 reported there were 105 murders in July 2020, up from “the 44 reported in July 2019.”

Moreover, there were 406 “shooting incidents” in Chicago during the month of July 2020, an increase of 75 percent “from the 232 last July,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Over a longer span of time, murders were up 51 percent from January 1, 2020, through July 31, 2020, compared to murders for the same period of time in 2019, according to the Sun-Times.

Lightfoot blamed Chicago mayhem and bloodshed on gun friendly states during a July 26, 2020, appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

According to The Hill, Lightfoot told CNN, “Our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns on our streets, 60 percent of which come from states outside of Illinois.”

She added, “We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons — that is hurting cities like Chicago.”

Lightfoot did not mention that the Chicago area already has an “assault weapons” ban via a Cook County ordinance. Nor did she mention background checks are a federal requirement, mandated for all retail gun sales in every state of the Union, whether that is Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, or California.

The mayor also failed to noted that her state, Illinois, requires everyone to obtain a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card before being allowed to possess a gun, and the process for obtaining that card includes a background check.

Orange Man Bad?

Orange Man Bad? Democrats Worse

By Jonathon Moseley

For years, #NeverTrump activists were pushing the challenge to Trump supporters on social media:  “Is there anything that Trump could do that would cause you to stop supporting him?”  It was one of the primary “Orange Man Bad” themes.

The morality test is that Trump supporters are abandoning all principle by worshipping Donald Trump as our Messiah and engaging in a cult.   Leftists in both parties have lied about Donald Trump, hurling smears and invective, accusinng Trump of saying things that Trump never said and doing things Trump never did. And yet it just isn’t working.

Why don’t any of their attacks on Trump succeed?  It cannot be because the #NeverTrump arguments are dishonest, unfounded, and unpersuasive.  It has to be because Trump supporters are mesmerized.  Trump has fooled us all into thinking he is wonderful.

Never will #NeverTrumpers reexamine their arguments.

The correct answer is obviously:  “No, there is nothing that Donald Trump can do to lose my support, because I am not judging the 2016 or 2020 elections based on Trump’s supposed perfection.”   Because any intelligent person’s necessary support Donald Trump has nothing to do with whether Trump is flawless or not, Leftists are wasting their time.   Donald Trump being without faults never played any role in our decision.

In 2012, the Republican Party made a fatal mistake.  (Well, many, actually.)   The main message of the Republican presidential campaign from those trying to drag Mitt Romney across the finish line was “Obama bad.”  Not “Mitt Romney better.”

But voters don’t vote that way.  The voters, I believe, were ready to concede that in many ways:  “Obama bad.”  But… were the voters convinced “Mitt Romney was better?”  No.

The GOP did not even try to argue that.  If you don’t attempt to convince the voters why your guy is better, they are not stupid.  The voters will read between the lines and notice what you left out of your message.

I am convinced that in 2012 many voters agreed “Yes, Obama is troubling, but would Bain Capital’s Mitt Romney drive the economy into another 2008 meltdown?  Do I want to take that chance?  Maybe re-electing Obama is the less-risky choice.”

The GOP failed to counter attacks.  Defending yourself wouldn’t be polite.  A gentleman just allows people to lie about him.  It would be unseemly to point out your opponents’ lies.  The GOP never to this day (I mean the party officially) rebutted the lies about the 2008 economic mortgage-collapse crisis or explained the Democrats’ guilt in creating it.

Why would I ever vote for any Democrat, especially Joe Biden?  I was Christine O’Donnell’s campaign manager briefly when she ran against Biden in 2008 for the  Delaware U.S. Senate seat, helping her win the Republican nomination along with Gretchen Ellixson, John Feroce, and others.  I created a website “The Biden Quiz” documenting in precise detail (after Christine argued it) that Joe Biden was among the most far-left U.S. Senators.

Biden has never been a moderate.  Worse, Biden is a chameleon, a voiceover actor who simply memorizes talking points and delivers them like a narrator in a TV commercial.  Biden doesn’t actually believe in anything.  But he does echo precisely whatever the far Left says or wants.

All Joe has had to do for decades is repeat the talking points popular at the moment and collect applause.  In his left-wing bubble, when Joe could say no wrong, it ceased to matter what came out of Biden’s mouth.

Rich Lowry’s National Review actually launched the #NeverTrump hysteria with its landmark 2016 edition “Conservatives Against Trump. Within two years, Rich Lowry tried to retreat from the mania. Writing in Politico, this week, Lowry tried to build common ground between the #NeverTrumpers he championed and Trump voters, without the benefit of a map.  In “The Folly of the Never Republicans,” rather than deconstructing the reasons for the chasm, Lowry merely warns that burning down the Republican Party by electing Biden will not create a better outcome.  Lowry concedes that Trump is an unacceptable boor — suspiciously like what critics said about Winston Churchill and uncultured frontier woodsman Abraham Lincoln.  But Lowry urges #NeverTrumpers to step back from the cliff.

#NeverTrumpers can point out a thousand faults of Donald Trump — none of which are true, but let’s focus on the point.  The alternative candidates are worse.

One cannot point the finger at Trump when the candidates they are pushing are terrible.  That includes the polite, dignified Republicans who think that letting the Democrats win makes them the better man.  Or maybe they think that if they attack their own party, the alligators will eat them last.  Haven’t we already tried those type of Republicans for decades?  What could possibly make anyone want to back to those “dignified” Republicans?  They are the problem, not the solution.

The anti-Trump lies are astonishing after establishment Republicans spent decades fooling the voters and breaking their promises.  The GOP since 1964 has lied to voters, promised common sense, conservative reforms, and then voting with the Democrats to enact left-wing, grow-the-government policies and general lunacy.  Yet now they want to tell us that Trump has fooled us.

I am making an intelligent, informed choice from my deep involvement in politics and government since 1984 that the modern Democrat Party has become a destructive force.  It’s not your grandfather’s party anymore.  The “New Left” rioted at the Democrat National Committee in 1968 just like they are doing today.  The Democrats actually booed God at their 2012 Democrat National Convention.

Even if “Orange Man Bad” we must also compare:  “Democrats Worse.”

The difference between the truth and myths

It appears that most journalists, Jerry Nadler and other Democrats need a lesson on the difference between the truth and myths

By Jack Hellner

There’s a lot of talk being thrown around on the television and the print press, from Democratic pols, journalists, and other Democrats, about assorted ‘myths’ regarding race relations, COVID and whatnot.

Here are the definitions:

Myth: a widely held but false belief or idea.

Truth: that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality

Here are a few myths which most of the media and other Democrats present to the public as if they were true:

The “hands up don’t shoot” narrative which has been used to gin up racial hate, division and violence for years. It is especially used to target white cops. How many white cops have been injured or killed because so many journalists and other Democrats have perpetuated this myth?

That white Christian boys at a pro life rally who were wearing MAGA hats were racists. These boys were anything but that but treated as disposable pawns by journalists to destroy Trump. The intentionally false story was used to gin up racial hate and division. How many innocent people, including kids, are journalists and other Democrats willing to destroy to get the radical leftists they support in power?

That allowing fully developed babies to die without health care after birth is “reproductive choice.” The reproductive choice was clearly made around nine months before. The reason that the pleasant term “reproductive choice” is used by most journalists and other Democrats for this murderous act is that the truthful terms of murder or infanticide would repulse anyone with a conscience.

That there was collusion between or among Trump and Russia in the 2016 election. This myth has been used to destroy and defeat Trump and his associates for years. It is perpetuated to mislead the public. There is no end to the number of people journalists, career swamp creatures and other democrats are willing to destroy as they perpetuate this myth. They conduct endless, useless witch hunts despite knowing that the Russian collusion story is fake, a hoax or a myth.

Here are a couple of truths that the media, Representative Jerry Nadler and other Democrats tell the public are myths:

That radical, leftist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter are perpetuating violence and destruction on cities throughout the U.S. It is not a coincidence that almost all the violence and destruction are done to cities run by leftist Democrats for decades because the public officials willingly look the other way. The media and other Democrats treat the violence as a myth in order to claim that Trump is only sending in federal agents to boost his election.

That there were a massive number of corrupt criminals in the Obama Administration who were willing to lie and commit other criminal acts in order to take out Trump and elect the corrupt, lifetime criminal Hillary as President. The media and other Democrats have covered up these corrupt, criminal acts for years and now they seek to destroy William Barr who is trying to tell the public the truth.

Either, the media and other democrats have a lack of intellectual capability to tell the difference between the truth and myths or they are intentionally lying to the public in order to destroy Trump and elect Democrats. If they were honest, they would never have supported the corrupt criminal Hillary for president and they certainly wouldn’t support the corrupt, incompetent Biden this year.

Most journalists should register as campaign workers and donors with the Federal Election Commission because every day almost all the supposed news stories are campaign ads for Biden and against Trump. It is essentially 24 hours of in-kind free contributions.

Biden’s Civil War

Biden’s Civil War

By William L. Gensert

A victorious President Biden will move from his Delaware basement to the cellar of the White House, where he will remain only to be seen by the public in prerecorded, televised “Messages to the People.”

The riots will stop. After which, the suspiciously trained, organized, and supplied “grassroots Antifa rioters” will be “unofficially” incorporated into the Biden administration as “Local Policy Councils” financed by leftist dark money and tasked to root out disobedience and dissent. Thereby, Jerry Nadler’s Antifa “myth” will be in a position to enforce the much needed “hope and change” Biden has said he wishes to bring back.

Despite a distinct lack of promise in his future, Joseph Biden is a man who makes many promises. There was, however, one promise he made in the Democratic debates that is suspiciously absent from his recent professions of intent.

Biden (or whoever is pulling his strings) will have full control of the legislative branch of government — either by the Democrats keeping the House, and winning the Senate in 2020, or through persuasion by Local Policy Councils of certain Republican senators, congressmen, and their families — which of course, corporate media will ignore.  The filibuster will be eliminated to grease the path of progressive legislation.

He will spend the first two years consolidating control of Congress. The census redistricting, as modified by the Local Policy Councils and intimidated state legislatures, will ensure Democrat control of both houses of Congress by a landslide in the 2022 midterms. Perhaps, even securing the two-thirds of both Houses necessary for the elimination of the electoral college.

Still, the only way to assure implementation of the left’s promise to “fundamentally transform The United States of America,” is to disarm Americans.

Starting slowly, Biden will precipitously increase taxes on guns and ammunition while restricting the amount of ammunition that can be legally purchased in a month. There will be mandatory gun registration under penalty of law. Failure to register will subject gun owners to felony prosecution, fines starting in the tens of thousands of dollars, and civil forfeiture of property such as real estate and cars.  

Then, after the midterm elections, with the left in full control of the legislative and executive branches of government, laws will be passed outlawing all guns in private hands (an exception will be made for Local Policy Council members).

Gun confiscation will begin.

Any records the federal, state, and local governments possess pertaining to gun ownership will be made public with the release of the names and addresses of all gun owners nationwide. Employers will be encouraged to terminate any employees who are gun owners. Mortgage companies, banks, and credit card companies will be encouraged to decline financing to gun owners, “Local Policy Councils,” nee Antifa, will be encouraged to “peacefully protest” at the places of employment and homes of gun owners.

The Local Policy Councils, employers, banks, and financial firms will be indemnified against lawsuits pertaining to these actions. In addition, the Local Policy Council members as a quasi-militia will be protected by qualified immunity.

The same tactics used to such devastating effect in the rioting we have witnessed these last few months will now be used against doxed gun owners. Nightly visits by screaming, armed, and violent “mostly peaceful” council members will become prevalent. Arson, damage to private property, violent assaults, homicide, and even rape will become a “tool of the people” deployed to ensure recalcitrant gun owners “voluntarily” surrender their weapons. Again, corporate media will ignore these incidents.

Having deployed the National Guard and active-service troops from the Army throughout the 50 states, joint teams of disarmed and unfunded police, troops, Guard units, and Local Policy Council members will search homes for any unregistered guns.

Soros prosecutors and the success of the “decarceration movement” will allow socially distant incarceration of those who refuse the sensible new gun reform.

Well… that’s the plan, anyway.

Apocryphally, Otto von Bismarck is said to have remarked, “God looks out for fools, drunkards, and the United States.”

The fools on the left are not going to know what hit them.

The left’s power is concentrated on the coasts and in large cities. The vast majority of this country, what is derisively called “flyover country” by those on the left, is relatively conservative and armed to the teeth. In most of America, people believe they can never be too thin, too rich, or too well-armed. It is estimated there are anywhere from 350 million to 700 million guns in private hands, and anecdotally, the higher number is probably still too low.

Remember COVID, the Chinese flu the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) deliberately infected the world with? Like all Chinese products it did not work as advertised but we locked down the economy anyway.

Well, one of the big reasons people did not starve is because truckers kept trucking. Most drivers keep a gun in their cab. When authorities confiscate that gun, deliveries to the cities will cease. It would be a matter of weeks before New York and LA started to run out of food.

How many homeowners do you think would need to be assaulted before a visit from the Local Policy Council would be met with gunfire? Council members are not trained for what they will provoke and can expect to be decimated in confrontations.

How long before people start to organize and directly attack authorities and lines of communication, in and around the cities? Keep in mind every hunter is something of a sniper. How long before some of them decide to lie in wait to pick off public officials responsible for these policies? America is also chock full of trained veterans. It does not take a brain surgeon to realize what side they will be on. Pipelines, power plants, interstate highways, railroads, and bridges will all be targets of attack.

Governors, mayors, and LEOs will start to defect, as will National Guard and any other troops who will resent being asked to kill their neighbors and relatives.

There are not enough soldiers, National Guard, and potential Local Policy Council members to protect everything or seize all weapons.

The fact is, Americans will never allow the government to take their guns, period!

Cops pull out of DNC

Cops pull out: Democrats in need of convention protection can now call a hippie

By Monica Showalter

One hundred police agencies delivered a vote of “no confidence” in the Democrats’ fitness to govern, pulling out from contracts to protect the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, just three weeks before kickoff.

According to Fox News:

More than 100 police agencies are pulling out of security agreements to send personnel to next month’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee over orders that would prevent officers from using certain crowd control measures during protests, Fox News has learned.

The police departments were part of a collective of outside agencies poised to send officers to secure the event, which will run from Aug. 17–20 and where Joe Biden is expected to be named the party’s presidential nominee. The action comes after the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission directed Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales to change department policy to restrict the use of tear gas and pepper spray.

That’s quite a statement coming from that many police agencies.  Who will be left to police the Democratic Convention with this many agencies out is anyone’s guess.  Maybe the hippies can help.

The police pullout is an entirely reasonable and rational.  On a broad level, Democrats have refused to condemn the far-left mob violence directed against police and property in every blue city from New York to Minneapolis to Portland to Seattle.

They’ve also demonized police, blaming them for every act of violence that occurs as leftist mobs run wild, tearing down statues and destroying property.  President Trump’s recent effort to send in federal officers to protect courthouses in some cities has been met with blue-city mayors’ claims that police make matters worse.

Democratic leaders such as Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti have demonized police as “killers” while Marxist Democrats such as New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio gave “the talk” to his black son about the wickedness of the police.  For Democrats, the cops are always “pigs.”

No Democrat has condemned the widespread violence of blue cities, nor stood up for the police officers who are being sent into harm’s way to stop it.

Worse still, Democrats are calling to “defund” the police at a time of runaway crime owing to their criminal justice “reform.”  Cops are getting the message from the Democrats and responding accordingly.

The specific stated reason, about not being able to use crowd control measures, is important, too.  Basically, the cops will be left to control crowds with pretty much just their guns because they’ve just been prohibited from using any non-lethal standard crowd control measures.

Combine that with the riot-mindedness of the Democrats these days, and it’s all but certain the police will be placed in an untenable position — either as sitting ducks for the leftist mobs to beat and blind, as they’ve done in Democrat strongholds such as Portland and Seattle, or else the sucker’s role of bad guy, the cops who defend themselves from “peaceful protesters,” as the Democratic euphemism goes these days.  Either way, they aren’t going to win.

Democrats, by the way, have a history of violence at their conventions.  The 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, brought on by rioting leftists, pretty much got branded a “police riot” rather than a leftist riot.  Cops know who would be blamed in the next one by Democrats.

There’s another political aspect of this pullout: police have historically been pretty friendly to the more moderate branches of the Democratic Party — Joe Biden’s branch — at least until recently.  It’s the Irish cop thing, plus the working-class police unions, as Biden is always happy to milk for political gain.  Obviously, that tie is gone for good now.  And there’s no comparable police pullout to the Republican convention, wherever that may be.  It seems the Democrats have lost the previously friendly law enforcement community vote.

In favor of…what?  The craziest fringe extremists in America?  This doesn’t sound as though it will end well for them.

Got trouble, Dems?  Call a hippie.

Hats off to Jim Jordan!

July 29, 2020

Jim Jordan laid out the best-ever explanation of the seditious plot to spy on Trump’s campaign and take down his presidency

By Thomas Lifson

Rep. Jim Jordan’s opening statement for the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing yesterday was as superb as the behavior of the Democrats was disgraceful.  In just under seven minutes, he laid out the way the plotters spied on candidate Trump and then, after he was elected, worked to cover up their plot.  At each step, he cited the evidence already on the record.

The video in the tweet below is perfect for explaining to friends and relatives the gravity of the sedition undertaken by senior levels of the FBI and the Intelligence Community at the behest of the Obama administration.

#ICYMI: Watch @Jim_Jordan’s opening statement from today’s full committee hearing with Attorney General Barr.

Right after this explanation, Jordan introduced and showed video of the actual mayhem on the streets that Democrats and their media enablers described as peace.  Another masterstroke that has the usual suspects squealing.

Hats off to Jim Jordan!

Pelosi hold stimulus checks hostage

Pelosi hold stimulus checks hostage to left-wing ambulance chaser lobby

By Monica Showalter

At a time when most Americans just want to get back to work and on with life, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains, the troll at the bridge, not just holding up $1,200 worker stimulus checks expected in the next coronavirus stimulus package, but in keeping the entire economy shut down until Joe Biden is elected president.

Here’s her witch-like stance:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Democrats will oppose liability protections for employers of “essential workers” in any future coronavirus package in a Sunday interview on CBS’s Face the Nation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) previously described inclusion of liability protections for businesses and doctors as mandatory for any agreement on a coronavirus relief bill. “If there’s any red line, it’s on litigation,” he said. He added, “If there is another bill that passes in the Senate, it will include the liability protections.”

It’s quite a bit of hypocrisy to be coming from a top Democrat. After all, if anyone should be sue-able, it should be her Democratic coeval, Andrew Cuomo of New York, and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, and Phil Murphy of New Jersey — all of whom seeded their state’s nursing homes with COVID patients, despite warnings from nursing homes, killing at least 12,000. Those governors have blood on their hands …. and total protective immunity from lawsuits.

But the idea behind Pelosi’s idea of leaving open the door to lawsuits for business is two-fold.

First, hamstring the businesses with the entire responsibility for the COVID outbreak so that anyone who catches COVID can make these businesses their personal jackpot, sue-able by leftwing lawyers, provable or not, because nobody truly knows how these things are proven. Would an airline care to stay open under such circumstances? Would a Hello Kitty store? Don’t think so, so no more airlines, no more stores, see how it works? Who’d want to stay open under such circumstances? Someone shows up at your business, refuses to wear a mask, fails to socially distance, talks and coughs loudly and bango, sue the business for big bucks once he or she gets COVID. Democrats in fact have spoken of using COVID as a weapon — remember Candi Cde Baca? So any pro-Trump business would become an immediate target.

Who’d want to stay open under such circumstances? Democrats have never liked businesses, so keeping them shut is a natural goal in itself for them. Their real goal, though, is to keep the economy shut down, keep Americans out of work, and keep them discontented, more inclined to riot, and more inclined to Blame Trump, come election day.

Second, to succor left-wing lawyers, a key campaign donation base for Democrats. Breitbart has the details here. Taking the economy hostage to reward the ambulance-chasing class and all the big bucks it can make from vast shakedowns of business is one hand washing the other, as the swampers say.

What’s disgusting here is that Pelosi is using the entire stimulus package to do this, to help her left-wing pals out as well as keep Americans lean and hungry. That includes workers’ $1,200 relief checks, a figure the immensely wealthy Pelosi in the past has dismissed as “crumbs.” The  other hostage to this unreasonable demand are in battered, looted, trashed, burned, broke, idle small businesses, and their battered, laid off workers, who just want to get back to normal.

In a way, she’s holding the whole country hostage to her demand to elect Joe Biden. Workers seem to be aware of this, based on recent polls. And, she’s done stunt like this many times. One hopes that this time, the public will see right through her and it will all blow up in her face.

Austin, One BLM shot dead

One Dead After Shooting at Black Lives Matter Protest in Texas

One person was killed after shots were fired Saturday night at a Black Lives Matter protest in Austin, Texas, local police said.

Dramatic footage uploaded to a Facebook Live feed showed the moment when shots split the night air in the Texas capital as some 100 protesters marched and chanted, “Fists up! Fight back!”

Austin police confirmed on their Twitter feed reports of a shooting just after 10 p.m. in the area of Congress and 4th Street in downtown. Soon after they said they were starting homicide investigations.

Police did not immediately link the shooting with the events in the live stream.

Initial reports indicate the suspect was carrying a rifle and shot at the victim, who was in his car, police told a briefing. The suspect has been detained, they said.

A witness at the scene named Julian told KUT’s Mose Buchele the vehicle almost came into contact with a group or protesters before the shooting started.

“As we’re walking down passing Fourth Street, a blue car just come swerving out into the middle of the street almost runs over a bunch of protesters and everybody around starts like smacking the car trying to get him to slow down,” the witness said.

“He pulls down his window and he fires three shots into the guy. From point-blank. No words no nothing. And then rolls up his window and zooms off.”
