One of the things I look for during the Vice Presidential Debate is whether both people are ready to be commander-in-chief if, God forbid, something terrible happens to the president. Tonight, Mike Pence’s mastery of the issues and his calmness even when Sen. Harris criticized left no doubt whether he’d be able to step in and do a great job without missing a beat. That can’t be said of Kamala Harris. She was thrown off often.

On the issue of COVID, Vice President Pence talked about the Obama-Biden administration got everything wrong about the Swine Flu but lucked out because it wasn’t as deadly as COVID. Pence then said that 60,000,000 people got the Swine Flu, not the 7,500,000 who’ve gotten COVID. Pence then finished by saying that had the Swine Flu had been as lethal as COVID is, there would’ve been 2,000,000 deaths, not 210,000:

The other hard shot Vice President Pence landed was when he compared the Biden-Harris plan to the Trump-Pence plan:

Sen. Harris has a tell when she’s pinned down on something. She starts smiling that nervous smile. Then she shakes her head side-to-side like she’s saying no. She did that often after the first segment. As Vice President Pence took command of the debate, Sen. Harris did that at least once per segment.

Sen. Harris did that on tax policy. Sen. Harris especially did that on fracking. Sen. Harris got trapped often on policy, often saying ‘Vice President Biden has been consistent about’ or ‘Vice President Biden has been quite clear’ about a topic where he’d flip-flopped. This was especially true about the Trump tax cuts and fracking.

One thing that became clear throughout the debate was that Sen. Harris is very artificial. When she got ready for one of her pre-rehearsed lines, she’d look into the camera, then started speaking with a bit of a lilt in her voice. Sen. Harris’s pre-rehearsed lines were intended to be kill-shots. None of them had the impact that she’d hoped they would.

Vice President Pence’s training as a radio talk show host shined through. When co-debater Susan Page interrupted, Vice President Pence talked right through her and finished his point. Vice President Pence was a man on a mission and he was focused like a laser. That Page often interrupted him when he ran long didn’t bother him.

Perhaps Pence’s hardest-hitting line was when he criticized Sen. Harris, saying “The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine, if a vaccine emerges during the Trump administration, I think is unconscionable. Senator, I just ask you: Stop playing politics with people’s lives.

Vice President Pence was the only person on that stage that I’d trust to step into the job of commander-in-chief. Sen. Harris simply isn’t ready for that daunting assignment.

“Will the Real Kamala Harris Please Stand Up?” is the title of this RedState article. The article then opens by saying “This evening, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) will meet Vice President Mike Pence on the debate stage for the one and only vice presidential debate of the 2020 campaign. So, which Kamala Harris should we expect to show up tonight, the far-Left liberal or the so-called moderate?”

The simple answer is that we should expect to see both versions tonight. Like Joe Biden, Sen. Harris is whoever she needs to be in front of whichever audience she’s talking to. The reason why she hasn’t taken many questions is because taking a position on issues means that she’d piss off either AOC or Establishment Democrats. It’s like playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded gun. There’s no winning in situations like that.

I suspect that she’ll be on the defensive most of tonight. Here’s why I expect that:

To date, Harris has been on the leading edge of the socialist makeover of the Democratic Party. She has co-sponsored several socialistic proposals, including the Green New Deal and Sanders’ Medicare for All bill.

According to Harris, “Climate change is an existential threat—it’s critical we act now to achieve a cleaner, safer, and healthier future. But it is not enough to simply cut emissions and end our reliance on fossil fuels. … We need a Green New Deal based in climate and environmental justice, which means building a clean economy that protects communities that have been neglected by policymakers for far too long. I’m proud to work with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez on this comprehensive proposal, and I’m hopeful that it brings a Green New Deal closer to reality.”

On Medicare for All, Harris is all-in, too. “In America, health care should be a right, not a privilege only for those who can afford it. It’s why we need Medicare for All …We need comprehensive health insurance that covers every American,” said Harris.

Watching this video is fun — if you’re a Republican:

With any luck, we’ll see all the different Harris faces tonight.

Now that we’ve distanced ourselves a little from Tuesday night’s food fight, it’s easy to detect Joe Biden’s radical agenda. To do this, think of what Biden didn’t talk about. Atop Joe Biden’s radical agenda is his priority to pack the Supreme Court. This isn’t speculation anymore. Both Biden and running mate Kamala Harris refuse to talk about whether they’d abolish the legislative filibuster or whether they’d sign legislation expanding the court.

Tuesday night, Biden unintentionally admitted that he’s planning on expanding the US Supreme Court, saying “Whatever position I take, that’ll become the issue. The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote.”

Biden knows that debates were designed to help inform voters about the candidates’ policy positions. By intentionally not telling people what his position is on this super-important issue, Joe Biden told the American people to drop dead, that they don’t have a right to know what he’d do if elected. What’s disturbing is that Kamala Harris stuck to essentially the same script:

Biden-Harris want our votes for the highest office in the nation but they don’t want to tell us whether they’d fundamentally and permanently transform the US into a European oligarchy. If you think that’s hyperbole, it isn’t. With unified Democrat government, the Biden-Harris administration would sign into law the dismantling of the legislative filibuster. After passing that, they’d quickly grant statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. That would give Democrats 4 additional senators and 6 additional electoral votes.

America-loving voters of all political parties must vote Republican if they want to stop this tyrannical agenda. Bill Clinton’s Democrat Party is gone. The leaders of this Democrat Party hate America. That’s why President Trump got rid of the critical race theory training.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris apparently don’t think they need to campaign in front of real people or take real reporters’ questions. Today, Kamala Harris’s dismissive attitude showed itself when she delivered a blistering speech, then didn’t take questions from local North Carolina reporters.

Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris faced renewed scrutiny for her lack of press availability on Monday after she abruptly exited the stage after a speech in North Carolina in which she criticized President Trump’s bid to fill a Supreme Court seat before the election.

Harris did not take any questions from the media after her speech at Shaw University, one of North Carolina’s historically black colleges and universities. The event was closed to the general public and attended only by news reporters, according to the Fayetteville Observer.

This fits into Sen. Harris’s bio that she’s got a glass jaw. She looked powerful when she attacked Joe Biden:

She was essentially knocked out of the race by Tulsi Gabbard:

Vice President Biden, in addition to not taking hard-hitting questions from local reporters, is a serial plagiarist. Everyone knows that he plagiarized Neil Kinnock, the British Labour Party MP. How many people know that Mr. Biden also plagiarized a Bobby Kennedy speech? This video shows that Mr. Biden also plagiarized JFK and Hubert Humphrey:

Joe Biden says that he’s running to restore the soul of America:

Question: can someone who won’t regularly take questions from the press be trusted to be president? Can someone who is a serial plagiarist be president? I hope not. Sen. Harris hasn’t answered reporters’ questions since being picked to be Joe Biden’s running mate. Why are Biden and Harris afraid to stand before the American people and take their questions? Donald Trump isn’t afraid to answer hostile questions.

If you’re as tired of hearing Republicans and Democrats complain about the other being a hypocrite about confirming Supreme Court justices, get in line. Better yet, let’s change the subject to something worthwhile. Since the process is going forward, let’s talk about the Constitution and Judge Barrett’s qualifications:

  1. Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution assigns the authority for nominating Supreme Court justices to the president up to the day he leaves office.
  2. Article 1, Section 3 of the Constitution says that the term of the Senate is 6 years.
  3. Article VI prohibits religious tests, saying “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
  4. Amy Coney-Barrett’s credentials are impressive.
These 4 things won’t change, meaning that all the huffing and puffing happening in Washington, DC, is theatrics. Theatrics should be ignored because they’re unimportant. What’s important is that, at least until January 20, 2021 and perhaps longer, President Trump has the constitutional authority to appoint judges to the courts. What’s important is that the Senate has the authority to confirm judges to the Supreme Court. What’s important is for Democrats to refrain from talking about Judge Barrett’s Catholic faith. What’s important is that Judge Amy Coney-Barrett is more than qualified to be a Supreme Court justice.

This is whining at its worst:

This is what religious bigotry in the 21st Century looks like and how to respond to it:

Sen. Harris, Joe Biden’s running mate, is part of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She’s put her prosecutor’s hat on against Republican judicial appointees. Sen. Harris’ biggest weakness is her ego. She thinks she’s smarter than she is. That might get her in trouble. Judge Barrett is a truly smart, likable person. Shifting into attack mode isn’t the wisest tactic.

This morning, Mitt Romney announced that “he will support holding a vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee this year.” That means that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the votes to confirm the next justice before the election. This is a major victory for President Trump, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham.

With this confirmation, the ideological balance of the Supreme Court will change dramatically. Swapping out RBG, then swapping in Amy Coney Barrett, if that’s President Trump’s pick, is a hole the size of the Grand Canyon ideologically speaking. But I digress.

Sen. Mitt Romney said Tuesday he will support holding a vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee this year, all but assuring Republicans can push forward with filling the vacancy left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.

“The Constitution gives the President the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees,” the Utah Republican said in a statement. “Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the President’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.”

Game. Set. Match. Or to use a different metaphor, “Checkmate.” That doesn’t mean that Democrats will go quietly. Democrats will overplay their hand just as certain as the Grand Canyon is deep or Mt. McKinley is tall.

Trump plans to announce his choice for the lifetime Supreme Court appointment on Saturday. The court vacancy has supercharged tensions in an already fraught election. While the GOP hopes the prospect of securing a 6-3 conservative majority on the court will excite voters, Democrats have denounced the push to fill the seat before the end of Trump’s term as they try to gain Senate control from Republicans in November.

While there’s no doubt that this GOP victory will fire Democrats up, there’s little doubt that this victory will fire up Republicans, too. This is a good explanation from Sen. Romney:

In other breaking news this morning, President Trump tweeted when he’ll make the announcement:


Rest assured that Democrats will fundraise off this announcement. The truth is that they already are. The confirmation process will help Senate Republicans because Judiciary Committee Democrats aren’t too bright.

Mazie Hirono, Sheldon Whitehouse, Kamala Harris and Richard Blumenthal are each capable of making idiots out of themselves without noticing that they’re looking like idiots. A nominee like Amy Coney Barrett would slice and dice those legal midgets in a New York minute.

I’m not surprising anyone saying that Trump supporters aren’t traditional Republicans. Trump supporters are passionate, multiethnic and happy by nature. Joy Villa fits that description perfectly. Recently, Ms. Villa visited Minnesota for a rally that showed “their support for police, and to urge Gov. Tim Walz to end the emergency orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic.” Ms. Villa said “I just reacted because I hate bullies, I hate people who try to shut other people down just because we disagree.”

In this videotaped interview, Villa is quoted as saying “This is a 75-year-old man from New York. He’s gonna rub people the wrong way. I care about is he getting things done? First Step Act? That helps my black relatives who’ve been locked up. That helps a lot of black people who’ve been locked up. We have a better economy. That helps everybody. I’m like ‘you can hurt my feelings if you run my country right.’

Saying that my life experiences are different than Ms. Villa’s is understatement. The thing that brings Trump supporters together unlike any other group of people in political history is the brotherhood between people of different backgrounds under the umbrella of respecting each other’s differences.

That’s the opposite of the Cancel Culture Democrats. Whether we’re talking Antifa, BLM or other Democrat activists that shout people like Ben Shapiro, Guy Benson or other nontraditional conservatives, you’re talking about Censorship Democrats. You’re talking fascists, really.

If you haven’t noticed, people attending Trump rallies are partying. They’re celebrating. That’s why 96% of the people who attend a Trump rally vote for him. That’s why 98.4% of people who attend a Trump rally and contribute vote for Trump.

Biden’s supporters aren’t passionate about him. Sen. Harris’s supporters aren’t passionate about her. She’s just another check-the-box progressive phony. There are things that people don’t like about President Trump but he gets the important things exactly right. Trump is a natural deal-maker. He’s conservative on most things but he isn’t ideological like a Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh is. That’s fine.

Right now, Trump supporters can’t wait to vote to re-elect him. Biden is essentially dead politically. He doesn’t stand a chance. For Bernie fans, take it easy. He would’ve gotten crushed had he been the nominee. He’s a wimp, not a revolutionary. Witness how he rolled over for Hillary and Biden. Bernie’s hatred for fossil fuels would’ve gotten him crushed on that issue alone. His Medicare-for-all plan isn’t popular, either.

Bill Clinton’s Democrats had fun. They made deals, too. Today’s Democrats are angry sourpusses who think that the word compromise is something to be avoided at all costs. It’s impossible to picture the optimists found across the nation buying into Joe Biden’s angry-old-man schtick. He’s as likable as a rattlesnake. Before he became Obama’s vice president, he was actually likable. These days, he’s a grump.

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.

The Harris-Biden ticket insists that President Trump didn’t take COVID-19 seriously. Further, the Harris-Biden ticket insist that people died unnecessarily because of President Trump’s unseriousness. That’s BS of the stinkiest order. This White House fact sheet demolishes the Harris-Biden argument:

  1. Took early action to cut off travel from China
  2. Built the world’s leading testing system from nothing
  3. Enacted mitigation measures to slow the spread
  4. Mobilized public and private sectors to secure needed supplies
  5. Took action to protect vulnerable Americans
  6. Launched effort to deliver a vaccine and therapeutics in record time
  7. Provided support to workers and businesses
  8. Paved way for reopening to get America working again
  9. Surged resources to hot spots as they arose
  10. Confronted China as origin of the virus while Democrats and media cowered

Let’s get serious about something. Can anyone picture President Harris or Co-President Biden calling up pharmaceutical industry CEOs to have them start working on a vaccine in February? If you can picture that, what type of drugs are you using?

Peter Navarro was tasked with rebuilding the national stockpile of ventilators. He contacted GM about standing up a manufacturing facility in Kokomo, IN. From the initial call from Navarro to the manufacture of the first ventilator took 17 days:

“Every time you hear that ‘pity party’ stuff, remember to look into the future, see where we need to go, and what we need to do, and that’s bringing manufacturing and supply chains home, starting with our pharmaceutical supply chains and our medical supplies and equipment like masks,” he said. “And that’s what we’re doing. I’ve have seen miracles here. I’ve seen a plant in Kokomo, Indiana, with General Motors stood up in 17 days, and three days later, we had ventilators go into hospitals in Gary, Indiana.”

Does anyone seriously think that Harris, Biden or any other Democratic presidential candidate could’ve accomplished this? I don’t. I can’t picture any Democrat being able to accomplish anything like that. That isn’t the only special assignment Navarro is handling:

During the Obama-Biden administration, Obama and Biden didn’t think it was a problem to have our antibiotics, PPE and other medical supplies manufactured in China. If they thought it posed a national security threat, they didn’t act on it. Considering Biden’s coziness with China, it’s highly unlikely that ‘Buy American, Hire American’ was a priority.

VP Biden’s campaign slogan is just spin. It isn’t a commitment like it is with President Trump. Democrats are globalists and corporatists. Whether it’s Lebron James or Michael Bloomberg or Mark Cuban, they’re each committed to China in different ways. Bloomberg wants Chinese markets open to him even if it hurts the US. Lebron James doesn’t flinch when Nike uses child labor to manufacture athletic wear that bears Lebron’s name. Cuban won’t speak of China’s evils because it might hurt the NBA.

Donald Trump didn’t flinch in cutting off travel with China when COVID was first discovered. That’s because his loyalties lie with the US.

For the first 40+ years of his career, Joe Biden fed his family at the globalist trough. Biden’s family got rich feeding at the globalist trough. Why should I think that he’s serious about ‘Buy American, Hire American’?

This article provides proof that pitting 2 progressives against a capitalist isn’t a fair fight. Then again, 3 progressives vs. a capitalist isn’t fair, either.

Joy Behar, aka Joyless Behar, shot off her mouth on The View, saying “I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it. As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America, in case we don’t know this because I looked all this up for you, the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years, and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries. It was developed initially in 1796, when they started to think about it, and it became useful in the 1950s. OK?”

Thinking that she’d won that fight was Behar’s first mistake. Ivanka responded in real time:


Just to inform Ms. Behar, in the past, government put in place regulations designed to impede progress. Operation Warp Speed is different because a businessman, not a politician, is in charge of creating a life-saving vaccine. When lives are on the line, it’s imperative that we make sure that the product passes safety tests but that it also doesn’t take longer than it needs to. Being extra-cautious can cost lives, too.

If Joe Biden was in charge, there’s little chance of him streamlining the approval process. He’s a politician. He’s used to a plodding process. President Trump is used to speeding up the process as fast as possible. That’s how he’s run his companies. Translating President Trump’s skill set to the Oval Office means that things get done quickly. That’s why he’s gotten so many positive things done so fast despite the media- and politician-driven distractions. Predictably, Kamala Harris said she won’t trust anything related to the Trump administration:
