I started my political night watching Joe Biden answer softball questions from George Stephanopoulos. After hearing 5 Biden lies in the first 3+ minutes, though, I had to bail. Joe Biden is insufferable. I was DVRing both candidates’ townhalls so I switched in the hopes of seeing a more entertaining debate.

Unfortunatel, I was treated to Savannah Guthrie interrogating questioning President Trump for the first 16 minutes of the NBC townhall. The bad news is that Ms. Guthrie had little respect for President Trump. The good news is that President Trump handled Guthrie’s hostility with magnanimity … to a point. One thing that President Trump was asked was to condemn white supremacy to 8,475th time. He condemned it in strong, unambiguous terms, then added that Joe Biden should be asked to condemn Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other Democrat hate organizations.

President Trump didn’t raise his voice. He wasn’t argumentative but it sent a clear message. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Guthrie started soliciting questions from the audience. Last night’s ‘townhalls’ weren’t legitimate townhalls. Biden’s event was like a Guthy-Renker infomercial. President Trump’s event was more like an interrogation. That’s fine. Trump’s a big boy. He handled things just fine:

This is disgusting:

One of the questioners at the ABC-hosted event was Nathan Osburn, a former speechwriter for the Obama White House. Osburn specifically worked for the Office of Public Affairs at the Commerce Department under the Obama-Biden administration and at the Small Business Administration.

Here’s a softball, Joe. Hit it out of the park. Sheesh. You’d think that these activists/DNC operatives would learn that they don’t get away with this. The Democrats’ heavyhanded tactics will cost Democrats this election. When the dust settles, the MSM will have helped Republicans strip Pelosi of her speaker’s gavel. Republicans will enlarge their Senate majority and give President Trump another 4 years in office.

The people have had enough. The backlash is building. The Democrats’ tactics will have failed. Democrats have ignored Main Street. Democrats are now the Party of Silicon Valley and Wall Street, the Party of Antifa and BLM.

It’s time the MSM got hammered for their disinterest with Antifa/BLM while insisting that white supremacists have supposedly started the riots. This Federalist article exposes the MSM’s dishonesty:

Kenosha was up in flames, reduced to the same lawlessness that swept Minneapolis, Portland, Atlanta, and now this small Midwest town. Monday night in Kenosha, a day after law enforcement shot Jacob Blake, men and women stood with baseball bats and guns in front of their businesses and homes, trying to defend themselves against the extremist violence of the Black Lives Matter left. Since there weren’t enough police to control the situation, officers focused on defending public buildings, such as the courthouse, while leaving citizens to fend for themselves. A woman, who said she had lived in Kenosha for more than 40 years, broke down in tears, saying her city felt like a “war zone” and she was “terrified.”

The MSM has dishonestly insisted that both sides have contributed to the urban riots. That’s BS. Night-after-night, Antifa waged war in Portland. Just up the coast in Seattle, BLM ran the CHOP Zone. BLM also orchestrated the Kenosha and Minneapolis riots.

According to locals and reporting, the violence was caused by out-of-state agitators. On Thursday, local and federal law enforcement officials stopped an out-of-state caravan of vehicles filled with fuel cans and illegal fireworks. “The vehicles contained various items, including helmets, gas masks, protective vests, illegal fireworks, and suspected controlled substances,” according to police, who arrested nine people for disorderly conduct.

Democrats hate President Trump. They’ll do anything to destabilize the nation. And I do mean anything. This video involves a different topic but it perfectly displays the Democrats’ lack of integrity:

Simply put, Democrats specialize in ghoulishness. They’re utterly devoid of character.

Jason Whitlock has been writing a series on BLM. Today’s article is titled “Black Lives Matter 101, Volume 8.” Whitlock says that the purpose of the series is “dedicated to explaining to athletes the real agenda and impact of the BLM movement.”

Thanks to Whitlock’s articles, “Black Lives Matter, aka, Bigots Love Marxism, scrubbed its ‘what we believe’ page from the organization’s website. BLM is executing a coverup. As we saw with the Nixon presidency, the coverup reveals the severity of the crime.” And yes, I’m 100% certain that BLM scrubbed their website because of Mr. Whitlock’s articles. Why, you ask? Because he’s the only person writing about BLM’s agenda. Anyone thinking that the Washington Post or CNN would report about BLM’s Marxist history is kidding themselves. This is a brief overview of Bigots Love Marxism:

BLM’s “what we believe” page originally exposed the movement’s heavy Marxist influence. The page called for the disruption of the nuclear family. Let me quote it directly.

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.”

The first question people should ask is ‘why would Marxists want people to think of the collective rather than the individual?’ Answer that question and you’ll understand why capitalism outperforms socialism every time.

When a person provides for his/her family, it’s human nature to work hard and make sacrifices when needed. When a person provides for his/her neighborhood, some of whom he/she doesn’t care about, it isn’t human nature to work hard and make sacrifices when needed. That’s why Marxism is the antithesis of capitalism.

The NFL, MLB and NBA have cast their lot with BLM. Because BLM doesn’t have a positive reputation after its slogan, BLM decided to hide its roots.

It’s apparent that the MSM and BLM got major portions of the Breonna Taylor story wrong. It’s like Part II of ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’. In the original Hands up, don’t shoot, Michael Brown’s friend told police that Brown had tried to surrender but the officer shot him in the back and killed Brown. It wasn’t until the autopsy that the truth was uncovered that Michael Brown was never shot in the back.

With the Breonna Taylor tragedy, the MSM reported that “police officers have shot and killed another unarmed black person; this time a young nurse who was sound asleep in her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky.” They omitted the fact that Ms. Taylor’s boyfriend shot first because he thought someone was breaking into Ms. Taylor’s apartment. The MSM didn’t report that police knocked on Ms. Taylor’s door, announcing that they were police. These aren’t trivial details. These cut to the heart of this tragedy.

Democrats enthusiastically sold the MSM’s narrative because Democrats thought it would hurt President Trump. They were wrong on that. Harris Faulkner and Jack Brewer got it right:


This is disgusting:

Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza suggested on Wednesday that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron sounded like a notorious segregationist and racist from the civil rights era.

Her comments came on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” after Cameron spoke about the grand jury’s decision to indict one of the police officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death on three counts of wanton endangerment.

“I think what I saw this morning was a Bull Connor speech in 2020,” she said, referring to the former Alabama politician. “And you’re right,” she told MSNBC host Joy Reid, “unfortunately, it was being given by a Black prosecutor.”

BLM is as big a trouble-maker as Al Sharpton ever was. Saying that Daniel Cameron is a black Bull Connor is intentionally dishonest. It’s also intended to inflame people into violent protests.

BLM intentionally spread lies. They didn’t care if black people died.

I’m stunned that Joe Biden, the law & order candidate in this presidential election, hired staffers who then bailed out an accused child abuser. How can someone who has consistently insisted on being tough on criminals go so soft on an alleged child abuser? Sorry for the sarcasm to open this article. This article is meant to highlight the fact that Democrats have failed at multiple levels to protect the residents of Minneapolis.

Tim Walz, the DFL governor of Minnesota, flinched when Jacob Frey, the DFL mayor of Minneapolis, requested National Guard troops when the riots first broke out. Gov. Walz didn’t send the troops, then accused Frey of choking. Then there’s the Minneapolis City Council, the all-DFL city council whose brilliant idea was to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department without having a plan on what to replace the MPD and without talking the people living in Minneapolis. But I digress.

Timothy Wayne Columbus, a 36-year-old-man, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly penetrating a girl in 2015 when she was about 8 years old. A warrant was issued for his arrest on June 25. But he was later bailed out of jail and according to a court document, filed to have his bail money returned to Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF), the organization Harris and many Biden staffers asked their followers to donate to during the rioting in Minneapolis earlier this year.

The story was first reported by Alpha News MN and The Daily Caller. “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” Harris tweeted on June 1.

This is disturbing news:

Then there’s this:

The allegations against Columbus are macabre. The arrest warrant in the case states that the girl Columbus allegedly assaulted lived with her grandmother, who regularly spent time with her friend “Tim,” while the girl was seven and eight years old. When the girl was about eight, the victim told police, “‘Tim’ laid her on her couch and held her down as he unbuckled his pants and then pulled down her pants. Victim stated he then ‘put his thing inside me.'”

Finally, there’s this:

FOX 9 reported earlier this summer that MFF had raised $35 million in the wake of George Floyd’s death in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department. A recent update on its website indicates that it has spent at least $3,475,000 bailing people out of jail in recent months, with just $210,000 of that being spent bailing out protesters and rioters who were arrested in the unrest immediately following Floyd’s death.

FOX 9 also first exposed some of the non-protesters being bailed out by MFF, including Darnika Floyd, who was charged with second-degree murder after allegedly stabbing a friend to death, and Christopher Boswell, who is facing charges of sexual assault and kidnapping. The group put up $100,000 on behalf of Floyd and $350,000 on behalf of Boswell.

These are the thugs that the Biden-Harris ticket helped liberate. Do these actions tell us that Biden-Harris is committed to restoring order to our cities? Or do their actions sound like most Democrats who are soft on crime? I’d argue they sound like the latter.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson is upset with the Dallas City Council. He’s upset because the Dallas City Council just voted to cut DPD funding by $7,000,000.

Apparently, the Dallas City Council is controlled by the Black Lives Matter organization:

The Dallas City Council voted on Wednesday to cut the money from the police department’s fund dedicated to overtime pay. The cut comprised 25% of the department’s overtime budget. The decision came after Black Lives Matter protesters called on elected officials to defund the police department.

“The city of Dallas is facing a serious uptick in violent crime, and it’s not just a few days or weeks or months in the making. We’re talking about a couple of years now of steadily increasing aggravated assaults, steadily increasing homicide and steadily increasing domestic violence,” Johnson said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“I don’t believe, and neither do the people of Dallas … that now is the right time to be defunding the police, or cutting funding to the police to send a message or anything like that,” he continued.

Dallas is one of many U.S. cities that have been rocked by Black Lives Matter riots in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. Floyd died in police custody after an officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes. An autopsy of Floyd’s body found a potentially lethal cocktail of fentanyl and methamphetamines in his system.

Check this out:

It’s time to eliminate the idiots on the Dallas City Council who just voted to a) keep the bureaucrats fully funded and b) cut $7,000,000 from the DPD overtime budget. This says everything:

“I think we need to have a very serious conversation about these topics, and I’ll say this. When I first heard the phrase to defund the police several months ago, I very genuinely and earnestly asked the question what does that mean, and I was actually met with some ridicule and met with some derision and accused of pretending not to know,” Johnson said. “People are all over the place on what it means.”

Dallas City Council member Carolyn King Arnold issued a response to Johnson’s criticism on Saturday, defending the council’s decision and claiming that the council’s action should be viewed as a “reinvestment” in disadvantaged communities.

BLM-Dallas is interested in weakening Dallas police by stretching them far too thin. The City Council should be beefing up the police budget, not cutting it.

Last night, BLM ripped the mask off (again) and showed who they are. BLM showed that they are domestic terrorists when around “100 protesters took part in the rowdy, two-borough rally, first marching from The Bronx into Manhattan on the Cross Bronx Expressway.” It ended with six Black Lives Matter protesters getting “arrested outside of the 34th Precinct in Washington Heights on Saturday night after earlier marching onto the George Washington Bridge and briefly stalling traffic.”

The mask is off. BLM activists aren’t protesters. They’re rioters. Whether they’re Antifa or BLM activists or another anarchist organization, this thread of tweets exposes these left-leaning terrorists as hating America and willing to destroy America to achieve political power.

It’s apparent that these riots aren’t about George Floyd or civil rights. This isn’t about empowering minorities, either. It’s about manipulating minorities so that they’ll look past the Democrats’ ongoing list of failures. BLM is just a different type of plantation. Instead of Confederates selling off family members, today’s Democrats tell African-Americans that government can do what fathers used to do. Instead of the KKK terrorizing African-Americans, BLM, with the enthusiastic help of the Propaganda Media, pounds into African-Americans that Republicans are racists, that Republicans don’t want African-Americans to succeed.

When’s the last time that a BLM ‘leader’ pushed for school choice, strong nuclear families and respect for one another? When did BLM speak out against black-on-black crime? Or against schools where African-American students are essentially illiterate? If implemented, these things would substantially improve black lives. Better yet, they’d likely improve black lives quickly.

This begs the question why the billionaire owners of the NFL would jump into bed with BLM. These aren’t stupid people. Stupid people don’t become billionaires. This might help explain some things:

A new group of visionaries are needed. We don’t need more Sharptons, Jesse Jacksons and other race-baiters. What’s needed are more people like Tim Scott, Candace Owens, Kim Klacik, Jack Brewer and Harris Faulkner. These are men and women of moral clarity, personal integrity and vision.

The Bible says “Without a vision, the people perish.” Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton aren’t visionaries. It’s time for Jackson and Sharpton to retire. It’s time, too, for the NFL and the NBA to stop talking about having a conversation on race just for the sake of having a conversation.

BLM protesters are fine with endless conversations. So are Democrats. It’s time to put together a plan with achievable benchmarks and deadlines to accomplish those items. In other words, it’s essential for talk, followed by action.

Let’s see rich NFL players establish foundations that fund opportunity scholarship programs. Those foundations should be in place by the NFL draft. Once that step happen, the rest of things will fall into place with proper diligence.

This article talks about how what NFL end zones will look like for the future. It says “The end zones at NFL stadiums will be stenciled with a pair of messages calling for an end to systemic racism throughout the 2020 season, Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed during a Tuesday conference call. The phrases ‘End racism’ and ‘It takes all of us’ will be seen in the 10-yard scoring areas at either end of the field, Goodell said.”

When it comes to PR stupidity, you can’t much worse than the NFL. The NFL, you’ll remember, is the pro sports league that thought that suspending Ray Rice for 2 games was sufficient after he assaulted his then-fiance coming out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. This year, the spineless ‘leaders’ of the NFL folded like a cheap suit when the players decided that they’d support the BLM organization. Had the NFL had a spine, they would’ve told the players they wouldn’t support terrorists like BLM. If you have a problem with the word terrorists, watch these videos, then tell me that word doesn’t fit:


BLM’s co-founders are admitted “trained Marxists.” Further, BLM stands for the destruction of the nuclear family. Why would the NFL want to connect with BLM? People are figuring out who BLM is and what they represent. This isn’t a winning situation for the NFL. If the NFL had someone smart running their PR operations, that person would’ve told them that it’s most important to not alienate anyone. When people tune out, which will happen this fall, revenues drop. The PR person should’ve asked the players what’s most important — to keep the fat paychecks coming or to establish a relationship with a radical activist organization?

The NFL and society would be farther better off if the players focused on fixing problems rather than starting a conversation. Anyone can start a conversation. Thus far, only President Trump has fixed any problems. When someone says that they’d like to start a conversation about race, it sounds like President Obama prepping for a beer summit. The Beer Summit didn’t do any harm but it didn’t fix anything, either.

I love reading anything written by Jason Whitlock or Clay Travis of Outkick.com. This article by Jason Whitlock is another in his series “dedicated to educating professional athletes on the real agenda and impact of the so-called Black Lives Matter movement.” In the article, Whitlock said “Earlier this week, I renamed BLM, calling it Bigots Love Marxism.”

While athletes shout “Breonna Taylor” or “I can’t breathe”, thinking that they’re making a positive change, they’re actually just getting duped. Instead of raising awareness to an issue, one of these athletes’ favorite buzzwords, they should take a bigger role in improving black lives. According to this article, there are 46 NBA players making more than $25,000,000 a year. Even after eiminating the foreign-born players, there’s still 37 players that fit into that category.

The point is that a group of these players could establish an opportunity scholarship program to get kids out of crappy government schools across the country. They could then give awards to students who used those opportunity scholarships to achieve high GPAs. Another group of players could provide scholarships to HBCUs. That would incentivize students to work hard in school. There’s no down-side in that. Another group could help start businesses in places like Baltimore, Minneapolis and St. Louis, thereby returning capitalism to blighted inner cities.

While they’re doing that, they can tackle police reform, too. If athletes are serious about that, which I think they are, they should pay a visit to Sen. Tim Scott’s office. If they did these things, they’d find President Trump and HUD Secretary Carson fighting right alongside them. They’d also send the unmistakable signal that they’re serious about transforming blighted neighborhoods into prospering neighborhoods. That type of public-private partnership could transform our cities and our economy.

This video is must-see TV for athletes:

The question is whether these athletes want the positive press or whether they want to change neighborhoods for the better.

One of Biden’s staffers must’ve written this statement that condemns violence. I’m betting that Joe didn’t write it. I’m betting that because he isn’t awake that often.

The staffer’s statement starts by saying “The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable. Shooting in the streets of a great American city is unacceptable. I condemn this violence unequivocally. I condemn violence of every kind by any one, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same. It does not matter if you find the political views of your opponents abhorrent, any loss of life is a tragedy. Today there is another family grieving in America, and Jill and I offer our deepest condolences.”

This staffer should save the challenge to President Trump. He’s opposed the rioting since the week of the George Floyd riots. To offer historical perspective, those riots started in late May, 2020. Biden’s staffer’s statement was published on August 30, 2020. The next paragraph is pure BS:

We must not become a country at war with ourselves. A country that accepts the killing of fellow Americans who do not agree with you. A country that vows vengeance toward one another. But that is the America that President Trump wants us to be, the America he believes we are.

Whoever this snot-nosed punk is, he/she should be fired immediately for this malicious slander. It isn’t tethered to the truth. It’s BS from start-to-finish. Elected Democrats and BLM/Antifa mobsters are at war with America, not Republicans. Victor Davis Hanson nailed it with this outstanding analysis:

As a country, we must condemn the incitement of hate and resentment that led to this deadly clash. It is not a peaceful protest when you go out spoiling for a fight. What does President Trump think will happen when he continues to insist on fanning the flames of hate and division in our society and using the politics of fear to whip up his supporters? He is recklessly encouraging violence. He may believe tweeting about law and order makes him strong – but his failure to call on his supporters to stop seeking conflict shows just how weak he is. He may think that war in our streets is good for his reelection chances, but that is not presidential leadership–or even basic human compassion.

Joe Biden was silent as a mouse on street violence until he started sinking in the polls. The people in the streets aren’t Republican entrepreneurs. They’re Bernie Sanders/AOC-approved Antifa/BLM activists. These organizations are well-funded by anarchist leftists like George Soros. This doesn’t have anything to do with Republicans.

Donald Trump has been president for almost four years. The temperature in the country is higher, tensions run stronger, divisions run deeper. And all of us are less safe because Donald Trump can’t do the job of the American president.

That’s selective amnesia and then some. The people marching in the streets in 2020 marched in the streets 4 years ago:

After the police chased BLM protesters off the highway, BLM protesters threw concrete blocks from a walking bridge above the highway. Rashad Turner can’t credibly say that BLM’s words were misinterpreted.
