Archive for the ‘Joe Biden’ Category

While I was reading this article, it wasn’t difficult to notice that the leftist Democrats (Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, AOC+3) have started insisting on implementing their socialist agenda virtually immediately. Sen. Warren said in her Washington Post op-ed that “Biden and Harris ‘ran on explicit plans to create new union jobs in clean energy, increase Social Security benefits, expand health care, cancel billions of dollars in student-loan debt, hold law enforcement accountable, make the wealthy pay their fair share, tackle climate change and provide for universal child care.'”

That’s really stretching things. Joe Biden didn’t speak often enough to make anything explicit. The definition of explicit is “fully and clearly expressed or demonstrated; leaving nothing merely implied; unequivocal: explicit instructions; an explicit act of violence; explicit language; clearly developed or formulated; definite and unreserved in expression; outspoken:”

Most of the summer and much of the fall, Joe Biden hid in his house. The joke was that he didn’t appear in public without his running mate — COVID-19.

“Florida became the eighth state to pass a $15 minimum wage,” she wrote. “Arizona voted to increase taxes on the wealthy to fund public schools. Multiple states – red and blue – passed ballot measures to legalize marijuana. And Colorado said yes to 12 weeks of paid family leave.”

“The lesson is clear,” Warren added. “Bold policies to improve opportunity for all Americans are broadly popular. Voters recognize that these reforms are necessary to fix what is broken in our nation.”

Let’s squash this nightmarish agenda. It won’t take long before Arizona regrets their tax increases. Florida will quickly repeal this minimum wage increase, too.

I’ll be explicit about something. I want the United States of America to succeed. I don’t give a damn whether Joe Biden or other internationalist politicians succeed. I don’t know that we can prevent the job-killing regulations to the energy industry that Biden will propose but we can run on that issue in the midterms and in 2024. If Biden fails like I think he will, he’ll be a sitting duck in 2024 or he’ll retire, then let Harris take it in the face.

The first pair of pieces of legislation that the Senate should take up should be the Tim Scott-Donald Trump Police Reform Act and the Alice Marie Johnson-Donald Trump Second Step Act. I triple-dog dare Democrats to vote against those bills. If Democrats slow down the distribution of the COVID vaccine, Republicans should immediately pass a bill to accelerate the distribution of the vaccine.

Republicans should highlight the success of Operation Warp Speed in discovering a vaccine and getting the first batch out to those who need it most. Then they should highlight how the Biden administration slowed things down. Let Biden-Harris take the blame for not distributing the vaccine and therapeutics fast enough.

Joe Biden has picked oncologist Ezekiel Emanuel to be part of his COVID-19 transition task force. It’s immediately apparent that Biden’s team are globalists. Dr. Emanuel’s COVID-19 vaccine plan has lots of interesting facets to it.

One of those interesting parts is titled the Fair Priority Model. The Fair Priority Model features “a ‘fair international distribution of vaccine,’ rather than what he and his co-authors characterized as ‘vaccine nationalism.'”

Dr. Mengele would’ve been proud to have been associated with Dr. Emanuel. Dr. Emanuel is thoroughly ghoulish. What’s worst is that he’s ghoulish with a stethoscope. The last thing we should want is this guy advising anyone about health. Check this out:


Then check out this graphic:

If, God forbid, that Biden is elected, America First will be finished for the next 4 years. It’s apparent that the corrupt internationalists and corporatists have returned with a vengeance. Ezekiel Emanuel and Joe Biden are part of that society.

God help us all.

Yesterday, Joe Biden told the media wing of the Democratic Party, aka the MSM, that President Trump is an embarrassment for not conceding the presidential election. Precisely, Biden said “I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly. The only thing that — how can I say this tactfully — I think it will not help the president’s legacy.”

Biden better tread lightly. If he shoots his mouth off much more, he might start a dogfight that leads to a special counsel investigation of the Biden family’s finances. Once that investigation starts, Biden is in God’s little acre — east of the rock, west of the hard place. Did the Florida recount hurt Al Gore’s legacy? Since when did utilizing the Constitution’s provisions get frowned upon? That’s what President Trump is entitled to do. That’s what President Trump has an obligation to do, both for himself, his constituents and future presidents.

Considering the oddities that we noticed this year, it’s just logical to question things. Throw in things like this and you’d be crazy not to question everything:

Did Joe Biden even notice that he said he’s into widespread voter fraud? At a time when voting irregularities are popping up daily, that isn’t the brightest thing to do.

Further, Biden is rumored to want to rejoin the JCPOA. If he does that, he’ll scuttle the great work done by President Trump, Secretary Pompeo and Jared Kushner. That’s just the least of it. It’d take 8 years to clean up Biden’s mess. If Biden rejoins the JCPOA, that would become Biden’s legacy. Then again, Joe Biden isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

If Biden becomes president, it won’t take long for people to notice their quality of life drop significantly. Gas prices will increase. Terrorist attacks will start again. The Middle East will become destabilized again. Russia and China will return to making mischief again.

If anyone should worry about their legacy, it should be Joe Biden. He’s an idiot.

In January, 2017 Joe Biden and Barack Obama were briefed on an illegal wiretap on the Trump transition team. This isn’t a rumor. Thanks to declassified documents, we know this with certainty. We know with certainty, too, that Biden wanted to know if the Logan Act of 1799 could be used to prosecute then President-Elect Trump. This came after Trump won election without controversy.

After that, Democrats spent the next 4 years lying about President Trump, making wild accusations about his campaign colluding with Russia. I wrote here that the Mueller investigation didn’t investigate a crime, making it an illegal investigation under the statute. The investigators knew from the moment they started that there was nothing to investigate. They knew that because the ‘investigators’ knew that the dossier subsource was a Russian agent. That should’ve stopped the investigation immediately.

Next, Democrats impeached President Trump based on hearsay evidence corroborated by deep staters. Adam Schiff’s articles of impeachment didn’t include a crime, much less a high crime. Saying that Democrats did their utmost to divide this nation is understatement. Now Democrats want the GOP to sing kumbaya? I don’t think so.

Further, while I want the US to succeed, that doesn’t mean that I’ll give Joe Biden the benefit of the doubt. That’s if he wins. That isn’t determined yet at this point. There’s still a bunch of lawsuits to be filed, each with lots of evidence. This video provides tons of detail:

Affidavits have already been signed in multiple states. These affidavits highlight systemic voter fraud, including postal workers being ordered to backdate late-arriving ballots. This still needs to work itself through the courts but the system seems to be in place.

If Democrats think that Republicans will forget the past, then they’re kidding themselves. I don’t want Republicans to turn into the conservative version of the Democrats’ Resistance that Kim Strassel wrote about. We don’t need to. It wasn’t too long ago that the out party from the White House was known as “the loyal opposition.” That meant cheering for our country without caving into the opposition party. That’s the type of patriotism I’d prefer. I’d prefer belittling Biden-Harris. Instead of naming major pieces of legislation like the Second Step Act, name it the Trump Second Step Act. Tim Scott’s police reform bill that Democrats filibustered should be named the Scott-Trump Police Reform Act.

I believe in the people unifying behind the Constitution, the Declaration and prosperity. If the politicians want to join, that’s fine. If they don’t they can get fired soon enough. The nation is infinitely more important than the politicians. Period.

After his Super Tuesday victories, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden insisted that he was riding a wave of “Joementum.” At the time, Biden was riding wave of momentum. At the time, Biden said “People are talking about a revolution. We started a movement.”

In the final days of this election, virtually no momentum is visible regarding the Biden campaign. Democrats are worried, especially in Florida:

Democrats are concerned about lower enthusiasm among Latino voters in the final days of the 2020 campaign, warning it could cause the party and its presidential nominee Joe Biden to come up short in key states on Election Day.

Latino voters make up large portions of the electorate in a number of crucial states, including two top battlegrounds, Arizona and Florida, as well as Texas, where Biden’s campaign is mounting a late push, and Nevada, where President Donald Trump is seeking to broaden his own map.

That’s what nomentum looks like. I don’t know what these pundits were talking about:

I know what this looks like:


That’s what Trump momentum 2 days out from the election looks like. With a huge anticipated wave of GOP voters expected in the battleground states, things are looking good for Team Trump.

In his latest article, Nate Silver wrote “So here’s a question we can ask with our nifty scenario generator. Is Pennsylvania a must-win for Biden? No, not quite. It is close to being a must-win for Trump, who has only a 2 percent chance of winning the Electoral College if he loses Pennsylvania. Biden, however, has a bit more margin for error. He’d have a 30 percent chance if he lost Pennsylvania, which isn’t great but is also higher than, say, Trump’s overall chances on Election Day 2016.”

I don’t have the statistical models that Silver has. Silver isn’t some genius that walks on water, though. They got it wrong in 2016. I still remember Brit Hume on the FNC set flipping through betting websites talking about how they were changing as more states fell into the Trump column. Hume also noted after North Carolina was called that 538 changed its odds of Trump winning. But I digress.

Let’s apply some old-fashioned common sense to this election. It’s well-documented that virtually nobody (of any political stripe) is interested in Joe Biden. He’s drawn crowds of dozens of cars to his drive-by rallies. President Obama campaigned for him yesterday and drew 273 cars in Orlando Florida. President Trump held 3 rallies yesterday that attracted almost 50,000 in Omaha, NE:


By now, nearly 70,000,000 votes have been cast early. The previous record was in 2016 with 58,000,000 ballots cast early. When early voting closes, it’s possible that 80,000,000 ballots will be cast early. Some of the people will have stood in line 3-4 hours to vote. COVID is certainly changing those numbers. People are voting against President Trump, too. The average person attending a Biden-Harris-Obama rally has to stand in line 2-3 minutes maximum. How likely is it that they’ll suddenly stand in line 3-4 hours for a candidate that nobody’s that interested in?

By comparison, Trump rally attendees are used to waiting 3-4 hours to get in. How likely is it that they’d stand in line for hours to vote for President Trump? I’d put it at ‘very high’. It isn’t a stretch to think that the polls are off by a country mile. The ABC-Washington Post poll that shows Biden leading Trump by 17 points in Wisconsin isn’t a bad snapshot. It’s intentionally dishonest. Newt explains things beautifully here:

In this article, Newt explains what’s happening in Georgia:

Gingrich, who represented Georgia’s 6th District for 20 years in the U.S. House, told host Bill Hemmer that he is confident Trump will take the state by at least six percentage points. The current RealClearPolitics polling average shows the president and Democrat Joe Biden in a dead heat, with each receiving 47.2%.

However, Gingrich admitted “the state has changed a great deal” in the 21 years since he left office. “It’s more cosmopolitan and suburban,” he told Hemmer. “There is a fantasy that this is the time the Democrats will win. My guess is Trump will carry Georgia by six or seven … The turnout on the Republican side will be bigger than people expect.”

Gingrich also predicted that incumbent Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., will ward off his challenge from former House candidate Jon Ossoff, while the other, more crowded Senate race will go to a January runoff that will be won by the Republican candidate.

It’s time for Republicans to stop wondering if President Trump will win. He will. The next thing is to work hard to give President Trump a unified GOP Capitol Hill. If that happens, which I think is likely, we’ll have a fantastic next 4+ years.

Censorship right here in River City?

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” — MAYA ANGELOU

By ignoring the much given advice to not enter into a dispute with an organization that buys ink by the barrel, the author knows he may suffer at the hands of the ink buyers.

Facebook and Twitter are doing it. The New York Times and the Washington Post do it. Most of the cable news networks do it. The “it” is censorship by omission. A few hot off the press stories are offered as examples in the next few paragraphs. Then a developing story that has no final chapter will conclude this story.

I watched the film (The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in US History)

From the Washington Examiner The big Trump rallies you don’t see by Byron York, Chief Political Correspondent | | October 25, 2020 07:36 PM

WASHINGTON, Pennsylvania — “I can’t believe there aren’t any newspeople here,” said Linda of Greene County, Pennsylvania, as she stood among hundreds of cars and
pickup trucks idling in long parallel lines in a vast big-box-store parking lot Saturday, waiting to join the Interstate 70 Trump Train. Indeed, although there were carloads of Trump supporters as far as one could see, and many more on the way from Ohio and West Virginia, and this enormous political event was happening less than two weeks before the presidential election, as far as I could tell, I was the only newsperson there.

Early this month an advertisement began running on KYES a radio station owned by the Catholic diocese of St. Cloud. The ad was designed to convince listeners that former Vice President Joe Biden was a faithful Catholic. Knowing that you can not be a faithful Catholic and be pro abortion, pro gay marriage, and a supporter of the transgender movement, I contacted the manager of KYES to lodge a complaint. Here is what I wrote:

Truth is a core value that KYES was founded upon. The ad you are running on behalf of disobedient “Catholic” presidential candidate Joe Biden is deceptive. VP Biden’s support of abortion on demand, homosexual “marriage” and gender fluidity are mortal sins. In order for the sacrament of reconciliation to be effective, the sinner must promise to avoid sinning in the future. Biden’s behavior is consistently sinful. When KYES runs the false ad you provide material support for Biden’s sins.

My wife, Ellen, and I have been longtime listeners and financial supporters of KYES. Unless you pull the false ad we will no longer provide financial support or verbal support for KYES. We have stopped listening to KYES, we will continue to listen to Relevant Radio via the internet, to avoid hearing the offensive ad. Please advise us if you pull the ad.

What follows are the messages exchanged between the station manager and myself beginning with the initial response to what I wrote:

Hi John,
Thank you so much for sharing your concerns regarding the “Biden for President’ ads. Even though I agree with you K-yes is regulated by the Federal Government.
Due to Federal government mandates, K-yes is required by law to carry advertising for political candidates running for federal office. The views expressed in these advertisements are not necessarily those of K-yes or Relevant Radio or its sponsors, and may not reflect the teachings of the Catholic Church. Please continue to pray for our Church and our Nation!
God Bless.

My response:

How about running that disclaimer (The views expressed in these advertisements are not necessarily those of K-yes or Relevant Radio or its sponsors, and may not reflect the teachings of the Catholic Church.) when the ad runs?

The station did run the disclaimer but I continued to hear concern that Presidential candidate Biden was trying to pass as faithful Catholic and that Spirit 92 was also running the offensive ad. Both Spirit 92 and KYES overlap with the St. Cloud Times market area I decided to write this letter to the St. Cloud Times:

With over 70% of Minnesotans self identifying as Christians and the largest single denomination is Catholic. https://www.minnpost.com/data/2015/12/how-religious-areminnesotans/ and with the Catholic diocese surrounding St. Cloud having a combined Catholic population of over 133,000. http://stcdio.org/about/facts_about_the_diocese/

Thought the St. Cloud Times you’d be eager to run a letter to the editor that addressed Christian and Catholic readers. Far from being eager to run the letter to the editor what I got back was a run around and no specific answer to a simple question. The letter to the editor was submitted to the Times on Monday October 12th. The deception Biden ad had already been running for a week in the St. Cloud listing area. When no answer acknowledging receipt of the letter to the editor arrived the letter was resubmitted with the follow message on Wednesday Oct 14th:

Since I have not heard from you I am sending this email that includes the letter with documentation. The documentation included but it is offered as proof of accuracy and is not part of the letter.

The letter:

Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, asks us to respect his religious views even when his actions are contrary to the teaching of the faith he claims to follow. Why should you respect someone who claims one thing and does another?

Joe Biden claims to be Catholic. However, one of the fundamental teachings of the Catholic faith is that all human life is precious and to enable the taking of human life is always a mortal sin. Biden wants Congress to pass a law to extend the court decision that legalized abortion and make legal abortion “the law of the land.”* He even wants to force you and me to be complicit in abortion by making us fund abortions with our tax dollars.

Joe Biden’s consistent support of abortion and his intention to force taxpayers to financial support abortion places him in the category of unrepentant sinner. For an unrepentant sinner to claim he is a faithful believer (bearing false witness) compounds their sinful status.

In order for us to respect Joe Biden’s religious views he needs to do what Jesus taught sinners to do. He needs to repent his sin, and sin no more. Until candidate Biden declares his sin and his desire to sin no more (an unlikely possibility) our nation’s unborn children lives will be in grave danger. Fortunately for our nation we have a strong pro-life candidate.

We will be voting for that candidate.
Sincerely, John and Ellen Palmer

This is the response received on October 15th:

Hello,
Thank you for submitting your letter to the St. Cloud Times. Your letter has been added to the queue, and we will let you know if we plan to publish it.

Here is my response sent October 15th:

Thank you. FYI I have surgery Thursday to remove a subdermal hematoma located between the protective membrane of the brain and my skull. I share this so you know that in the next few days my wife and I will not be able to respond to your question(s) about our letter. I hope this will not prevent your publication of our letter in a timely manner.

Sent on October 19th:

My surgery went well and I have been home recuperating since Sat afternoon. I have not see my LTE in the paper and I wonder how much the LTE has moved up in the queue. I have noticed serval LTE have been published on parallel matters to my LTE and in today’s electronic version of the paper Dr. VanBuren had a column on a related topic to my LTE. When do you think my letter will be published?

Time’s response on October 20th:

Hi John,
I’m glad to hear you’re doing well. Your letter is still in the queue. This week and next week will be dedicated to local and state endorsement letters.

My October 20th response:

Does this mean the letter will not appear before the election?

Time’s Response:

I’m going to try to fit as many election-related letters as possible into next Sunday’s edition, so I can let you know next week.

My Response October 25th:

I notice my letter did not get published today and you said you would let me know next week. It is next week and with only a week before the election I need to know when or if you are going to publish my letter.

Time’s Response October 25th:

The plan right now is to get all election letters published on Sunday. I can let you know if that changes.

You now have my story. We might have a case of censorship by omission right here in St. Cloud. Your guess is as good as mine concerning publication of the letter. My wife half joking said the Times won’t run a LTE from us because you have been a victim of the cancel culture. Your guess can be noted by making a comment to this posting after the election I will let you know what happened.

Former President Barack Obama rallied 273 cars in Orlando this morning. Appearing on FNC’s Outnumbered, former Reagan Education Secretary Bill Bennett said that President Obama’s crowd went back “as far as the arm could stretch.” By comparison, there are twice as many people in a single section of stands at a Trump rally than there are in an entire Obama rally.

President Obama scolded the nation for electing President Trump, saying he didn’t expect President Trump to follow his policies, then saying that he’d hoped he’d take the job seriously. That’s a breathtakingly dishonest statement, especially coming from a former president. The Trump administration has negotiated more peace deals involving Israel in the past 3 months than all previous US presidents did combined. President Trump and the GOP Senate have appointed and confirmed 250 judges and 3 Supreme Court justices.

Does President Obama think that sounds like an unserious man? I don’t think that. President Obama is fighting for what little is left of his limited legacy. A Trump re-election would wipe out President Obama’s legacy and put smiles on people’s faces. I had the opportunity to watch this speech live:

I’m thankful I opted not to watch. President Trump’s list of accomplishments is lengthy, covers multiple subjects and won’t be undone anytime soon.

Emma Trittin, a University of Central Florida senior, said her age group of 18-29-year-olds was coming out in force this year, with more than 400,000 voting early. “I think Floridians are really fed up with how the past four years have gone with the Trump administration,” she said. “Youth are really stepping up and voting because they know that they have power in their voice.”

Ms. Trittin is ill-informed. According to pollsters Matt Towery of Insider Advantage and John Cahaly of the Trafalgar Group, people in the 30-44 age group have moved towards President Trump since last Thursday’s presidential debate. They attribute the exodus to Biden’s lockdown language.

Joe Biden’s campaign stops tell us who he’s targeting and who isn’t important to him. Monday, Biden made a hastily-arranged trip into Pennsylvania. It was a short car trip from his home. Tuesday, he’s heading to Atlanta. He’s making a single trip to Iowa, too. In other words, he isn’t visiting Blue Collar America, the sections that President Trump flipped in winning Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Biden is still fighting to limit the damage of his fracking flip-flop:

“I’m not shutting down oil fields, I’m not eliminating fracking. I’m investing in clean energy and I’m going to make sure that we don’t continue to subsidize the oil companies,” Biden told reporters on Monday as he made a campaign stop in Chester, Pennsylvania, just a short drive from his home in Wilmington, Delaware.

Years ago, Michael Kinsley said that “A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth – some obvious truth he isn’t supposed to say.” This is Joe Biden’s biggest gaffe. Biden is doing his best to limit the damage of his gaffe in the hopes he hasn’t killed his presidential hopes.

Steve Kornacki thinks that President Trump is playing defense this cycle:

In the sense that he’s hoping to hold all of the states he won in 2016, that’s technically true. Then again, all presidents running for re-election are playing a bit of defense. Kornacki thinks that all polls should be averaged together. With that, I vehemently disagree. Many of the media polls have been utterly worthless. I don’t want those junk polls in the mix. I only want polls that’ve figured out how to identify hidden Trump voters. If they haven’t figured that out, then they’re worthless.

Polls that have figured this out are Insider Advantage, Susquehanna and Trafalgar Group. Those polls show President Trump leading. I don’t pay attention to those polls because Trump’s leading. I pay attention because they’ve figured things out.

Joe Biden’s visits indicate that he isn’t trying to win back blue collar workers in battleground states. That’s a major mistake.

Robert Reich, former Clinton administration Labor Secretary and current progressive whiner, is fighting a losing fight. In his op-ed, Reich writes “This is a travesty of democracy. The vote on Barrett’s confirmation will occur just eight days before election day. By contrast, the Senate didn’t even hold a hearing on Merrick Garland, who Barack Obama nominated almost a year before the end of his term. Majority leader Mitch McConnell argued at the time that any vote should wait ‘until we have a new president.'”

This is sour grapes. Republicans held the majority in the Senate. They performed their constitutional responsibility of advise and consent by not holding a hearing for Judge Merrick Garland. The Constitution is clear on the issue of appointing judges and justices:

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

The Senate had the constitutional authority to reject Merrick Garland by not giving him a hearing or vote.

Barrett was nominated by a president who lost the popular vote by nearly 3m ballots, and who was impeached by the House of Representatives. When Barrett joins the court, five of the nine justices will have been appointed by presidents who lost the popular vote.

Again, this is sour grapes. First, the impeachment was a sham. Had it been tried in a trial court, it would’ve been dismissed by the judge for lack of evidence. The ‘prosecutors’ didn’t present evidence during the trial. They provided uncorroborated hearsay testimony. Next, it’s utterly irrelevant how the president got elected as long as the Constitution was followed. This is pure BS:

Barrett’s confirmation is the culmination of years in which a shrinking and increasingly conservative, rural and white segment of the US population has been imposing its will on the rest of America. They’ve been bankrolled by big business, seeking lower taxes and fewer regulations.

Big business wants regulations to stifle competition and higher taxes to prevent competitors from capital formation. Small want lower taxes and fewer regulations because they want to form capital, which is then used to invest in their business. Big business has aligned with the elitist wing of the Democrats. When was the last time Facebook, Google and Twitter bankroll the campaign to confirm a conservative judge?

In the event Joe Biden becomes president on 20 January and both houses of Congress come under control of the Democrats, they can reverse this trend. It may be the last chance – both for the Democrats and, more importantly, for American democracy. How?

For starters, increase the size of the supreme court. The constitution says nothing about the number of justices. The court changed size seven times in its first 80 years, from as few as five justices under John Adams to 10 under Abraham Lincoln.

The Supreme Court has had 9 members since 1869. That means they finally figured out what works best. Then they stuck with it.

Biden says if elected he’ll create a bipartisan commission to study a possible court overhaul “because it’s getting out of whack”. That’s fine, but he’ll need to move quickly. The window of opportunity could close by the 2022 midterm elections.

The judiciary isn’t out of whack. It’s just that Democrats don’t like the composition of the Court. If you want to change the composition, they need to win more races. Elections have consequences. BTW, thinking that Joe moving fast isn’t high after watching this:

I’m not sure he’s capable of moving purposefully at this point.
