This slanted AP article does its best to make Joe Biden sound like he’s the China hawk. The reality is that he’s a China wimp. Biden isn’t that bright, either, as this tape shows:

“They’re not bad folks?” That’s what Biden said right after he said that they aren’t competition for us. Had the Obama-Biden economy continued for another eight years, China’s economy would’ve been competitive with ours, if not bigger.

President Trump rebuilt the US economy, rebuilt the US military, then slapped tariffs on China for China’s unfair trade practices. This CNBC article sums things up nicely, saying “The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate slammed Trump for tariffs on Chinese goods that sparked retaliation from Beijing and pain for American farmers. Still, he called for the U.S. to ‘get tough on China’, taking a more aggressive stance than he did when he downplayed the threat China poses earlier this year.”

Biden continued:

“President Trump may think he’s being tough on China. All that he’s delivered as a consequence of that is American farmers, manufacturers and consumers losing and paying more,” Biden said during a speech outlining his foreign policy plans at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York. “His economic decision-making is so shortsighted and as shortsighted as the rest of his foreign policy.”

Actually, President Trump used billions of China tariff dollars to subsidize farmers while putting the crunch on the Chinese economy. As a result of Trump’s “shortsighted” policies, China’s economy had its worst year in 67 years. If Biden thinks that China having its toughest year economically in 67 years is proof that Trump isn’t tough enough on China, I triple-dog dare him to make that argument through Election Day.

In a statement, Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said the president “has repeatedly advocated for the American worker on the world stage by taking on unfair trade practices across the world.” She cited Trump’s replacement for NAFTA, called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, his decision to leave TPP and his China policy. She argued Biden “has a history of blue collar betrayals.”

Biden talks blue collar jobs. Prior to the China virus, President Trump delivered lots of blue collar jobs. Now that we’re getting the virus behind us, President Trump is restoring those blue collar jobs. He’s got his economic team working overtime to bring US companies back from China, often companies that left during the Obama-Biden years because we had the highest corporate tax rate in the world plus the worst regulatory regime in the world.

Why would companies move back from China only to get hit with the highest corporate tax rate in the world again? The Trump economic team is already working with companies on bringing them back to the US. Larry Kudlow lays out the administration’s actions thus far in this interview:

The Trump economy was essentially white hot. The Obama-Biden economy was like a campfire that just got splashed with water. It wasn’t out but it was on life support.

Derek Hunter’s Townhall article is titled “Liberal’s All-Out Assault On Free Speech” is a frightening assault on the English language. Frankly, it’s sloppy and incorrect. Hunter wrote “While the “conservatives” at the time were the ones imposing penalties on speech, it’s now the liberals seeking to do the same, and worse. The idea of criminalizing so-called “hate speech” has been popular with college-aged liberals for a while now. While normal people laughed at those stupid college kids needing safe spaces when someone was on campus saying things they didn’t agree with and requiring “trigger warnings” before engaging in normal human conversations on subject that might cause them to need a diaper change, liberals were busy looking for an opportunity to use this childishness to their advantage. They found it…by becoming them.”

The people “imposing penalties on speech” aren’t liberals. They’re progressives. There’s a world of difference between liberals and progressives. Democrats like Hubert Humphrey and Daniel Patrick Moynihan were liberal policywise but their liberalism had a healthy libertarian streak to it. Today’s progressives, like AOC, Adam Schiff or any Antifa/BLM member, have a fascist streak running through them.

We can’t defeat progressivism or the Cancel Culture if we aren’t properly identifying them. Cancel Culture’s fascism and BLM’s Marxism have totalitarian underpinnings to them. They aren’t interested in compromise, principled or otherwise. They’re interested in domination and total victory. Antifa ‘warriors’ often sound tougher than they are but their principle tactic is intimidation. In this instance, they ran into police prepared to deal with their intimidation:

These aren’t liberal protesters getting chased. They’re fascist thugs attempting to disrupt and potentially demolish a city. In this case, they were trying to destroy Portland, OR. This time, the fascists lost.

What we call them determine what weapons and tactics are required for the situation. Against fascists, I know that I’m not changing hearts and minds. My highest priority is protecting myself. That means we should think in terms of getting into a street fight. That means becoming a hardened target. Once we’re operating with that mindset, we’re properly prepared for the fight at hand.

Jason Lewis debated Paul Wellstone often. At the end of the debate, they’d compliment each other for the good points they’d made. Antifa sees that as a sign of weakness. Lewis vs. Wellstone is like Psalm 23, which says “Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me.” The Street Version of Psalm 23 goes like this: “Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil because I’m the biggest, baddest SOB in the valley.”

President Trump rejected DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s request for $500,000,000 in federal disaster relief aid. That rejection notice is drawing widespread praise. Conservative talk show host Mark Levin chimed in with this tweet:


Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, praised the Trump administration’s decision to reject Minnesota’s request in this tweet:


This says it perfectly:

Governors and Mayors who ordered police to stand down and watch their cities burn shouldn’t get a penny in taxpayer aid!

This is what happens when you have activists running the show. Frey was the bigger idiot of the 2 but Walz wasn’t far behind in that category. When the crisis hit, neither knew what to do. What’s astonishing is that Frey actually stood up to the mob momentarily before getting booed off the stage:

What’s interesting is that Gov. Walz hasn’t said a thing about the Minneapolis City Council’s vote to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department, aka the MPD. As governor, his primary responsibility is to protect his citizens. Dismantling the MPD won’t protect Minneapolis residents. It’ll put them in greater danger. A friend who grew up in the area told me Friday that 20% of the buildings on E. Lake St. are up for sale! People are doing their best to get out of Minneapolis. With the City Council’s vote to dismantle the MPD, people simply don’t feel safe. Some are retiring while others are moving to safer neighborhoods.

This is what minorities have to lose by voting for Democrats. Democrats are pacifists. If it isn’t Jacob Frey, it’s Jenny Durkan. If it isn’t Durkan, it’s Bill de Blasio. If it isn’t de Blasio, it’s Lori Lightfoot. I could continue but you get the picture.

If this was a natural disaster, Minnesotans would’ve chipped in. This was entirely avoidable if we’d had leadership. We didn’t have leadership this time. It’s difficult picturing improved leadership in Minneapolis anytime soon.

Saying that Democrats have gone wild with their Biden-Sanders economic plan is understatement. The first topic covered in the Biden-Sanders plan is climate change. It might as well have been written by AOC. It’s that radical:

To reach net-zero emissions as rapidly as possible, Democrats commit to eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2035 through technology-neutral standards for clean energy and energy efficiency. We will dramatically expand solar and wind energy deployment through community-based and utility-scale systems. Within five years, we will install 500 million solar panels, including eight million solar roofs and community solar energy systems, and 60,000 made-in-America wind turbines.

The first question I’d have is a simple one. Who’s going to pay for this transformation? In the next paragraph, we get the answer:

Democrats believe that any clean energy infrastructure project financed with federal support, including through the tax code, should come with robust wage and labor requirements. We will build a modern electric grid by investing in interstate transmission projects and advanced, 21st century grid technologies to power communities with clean electricity, including federal support to build sustainable and resilient energy grids in rural America and in tribal areas lacking energy infrastructure. We will reduce methane pollution through robust federal standards and targeted support for repairing and replacing aging distribution systems, which will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, including for the same pipefitters, insulators, and other workers who built the systems in the first place and who know best how to protect our communities from methane pollution.

We the People won’t have a vote on this boondoggle other than this November. The Biden-Bernie brothers will decide since they’re our betters. This is radicalism on steroids:

This means the elimination of fossil fuels. How do you think coal miners in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana will feel about that? Also, that’s the end of mining in the United States because they rely on cheap, reliable fossil fuels. The Virginia pipeline has already been cancelled due to uncertainty.

The things I’ve written about were found on the first 3 pages of the Biden-Bernie Unity Document. It’s a 110-page document. I will be going through the rest of the document and posting the highlights over the rest of the week. I suspect this will be a multi-part series.

After Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s faux America First announcement, Chief White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow shredded the Democrat’s proposal. Kudlow said “We must, we must not go back to high taxes and high regulations, we must not do that. It defies common sense after this pandemic contraction.”

Typical of Democrats’ tax policy, Biden’s plan is to make US corporations pay the highest tax rate in the world. Couple that with oppressive regulations, especially on the energy industry, and you’d set the economy back a decade or more. Right now, the US is energy independent and energy dominant. The Democrat’s regulations would essentially end fracking, send gas prices and heating prices through the roof and force us to rely on foreign supplies of energy again.

Kudlow continued shredding:

I respect them, and they have a right to do what they’re doing. But Mr. Biden’s going to be raising taxes across the board and then some. He said yesterday or the day before he wants to end something called ‘shareholder capitalism.’ We used to call that the investor class and if you buy for the long run you make a fortune for retirement. He’s opposed to that.

Biden said that he wants to bring medical supply chains home from China, which is the right thing to do. Unfortunately, he’s going about it the wrong way. He’s telling companies to return to the US but then telling them that they’ll get hit with the highest corporate taxes in the world:

This is from the Democrats’/Biden/Sanders plan:

Democrats believe there is a better way. We can and must build a thriving, equitable, and globally competitive clean energy economy that puts workers and communities first and leaves no one behind. We will help rebuild our economy from the COVID-19 pandemic and President Trump’s recession by mobilizing historic, transformative public and private investments to launch a clean energy revolution. We will use federal resources and authorities across all agencies to accelerate development of a clean energy economy and deploy proven clean energy solutions; create millions of family-supporting and union jobs; upgrade and make resilient our energy, water, wastewater, and transportation infrastructure; and develop and manufacture next generation technologies to address the climate crisis right here in the United States. And we will do all this with an eye to equity, access, benefits, and ownership opportunities for frontline communities—because Democrats believe we must embed environmental justice and climate justice at the heart of our policy and governing agenda.

Think Solyndra on steroids. Think taxpayer-funded subsidies for more expensive energy that won’t support the manufacturing industry.

Democrats will also mobilize a diverse new generation of young workers through a corps and cohort challenged to conserve our public lands; deliver new clean energy, including to low income communities and communities of color; and address the changing climate, including through pre-apprenticeship opportunities, joint labor-management registered apprenticeships for training, and direct-hire programs that put good-paying and union jobs within reach for more Americans.

TRANSLATION: Using a government command-and-control model, Democrats will pick winners and losers. Forget market forces determining the efficient distribution of investments. The Joe Biden-Bernie Sanders Democrats think they know what’s best.

Apparently, Tina Smith wants to represent a state filled with racists. That’s what she said in this video:


Smith said that it’ll require lots of hard work “to root out the racism that is too much a part of this state.” Then Smith asks “my fellow Minnesotans to raise up your voices in righteous protest. That is how we change this state and this country so that it is worthy of all of us.”

That’s stunning. I’ve just celebrated my 64th birthday. I’ve lived in Minnesota my entire life. While there have been pockets of racism from time-to-time, it’s BS to think that Minnesotans, as a whole, are racist. In fact, smearing people with the type of broad brush that Smith just applied is itself racist.

It’s disgusting that Smith hasn’t recognized that what the DFL often characterizes as racism is actually people holding deeply held religious beliefs found in the Christian Bible. Christians have frequently been mocked for their sincere beliefs. Christians shouldn’t expect the DFL to show even the least amount of grace in this time. The DFL isn’t into showing mercy or grace. They’re into rioting and looting.

Jason Lewis is into growing economic opportunity, calling out corrupt career politicians and strengthening local communities:


Other than Tim Walz and Jacob Frey, who looked like idiots during the rioting, the DFL disappeared. Tina Smith and Amy Klobuchar disappeared. Ilhan Omar disappeared, apparently to meet with the Minneapolis City Council to advance the Squad’s agenda of dismantling the Minneapolis PD. When Minnesota needed leadership, President Trump called Gov. Walz and told him to call in the national guard or the feds would clean up Walz’s mess. Gov. Walz obediently complied immediately.

President Trump was a portrait in leadership. Gov. Walz wasn’t. Neither was the DFL. Unfortunately, I’m not surprised. This November, Minnesotans can vote for the party that’s accused them of being unwitting racism. That’s the DFL. If they don’t want to vote for the DFL so they can constantly be called racists, they can vote for the party that wants everyone to succeed, aka the MNGOP.

While primary election vote totals aren’t perfect general election predictors, the often show whether polling is right. If that’s true again this cycle, then Biden’s lead might be more illusion than fact.

In the all-important battleground states of Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, Trump beat Biden in each state. In Wisconsin, Trump beat Biden 616,705 to 581,611. In Ohio, Trump beat Biden 682,843 to 623,186. In Pennsylvania, Trump beat Biden 934,524 to 914,904. In Florida, Trump beat Biden 1,163,000 to 1,077,000.

These vote totals suggest that the polling is off by a significant margin. This puts Biden’s campaign in a bit of a pickle. With his dementia, they can’t really afford to put Biden on an aggressive campaign schedule. They can’t afford to play a run-out-the-clock game either.

Another thing that shows up in these primaries is that President Trump’s base is definitely with him. He’s had some difficult weeks according to DC talking heads but that hasn’t translated into voting margins in swing states. Now, with Biden essentially signing onto Bernie’s agenda and the Squad’s #DefundthePolice agenda, he’s in danger of losing the suburbs.

If Democrats lose the suburbs, they’ll lose the House. They won’t defeat Trump. Their uphill climb of retaking the Senate majority gets quite a bit steeper. Rashida Tlaib’s belief that Democrats need to listen to the anti-police activists is misguided.

Trump also has historic support within his own party, so far winning more than two million more votes than his total in the 2016 primaries — a new record for the most votes ever cast for an incumbent president. Trump has also set dozens of records for votes cast for incumbent presidents in their respective state party primaries and has won more than 94% of all votes cast in the Republican primaries.

Joe Biden’s lead won’t last now that he’s signed onto Bernie’s agenda. Kevin McCarthy thinks that this represents a surrender:

“This is not a unity group, this is surrendering to the socialists,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said. He went on to note that Biden “has been in Washington for more than 40 years” and “hasn’t been able to” to accomplish much on criminal justice reform and other things.

He was instrumental in passing the 1994 Crime Bill, which led to mass incarcerations of African-Americans. President Trump started fixing Biden’s mistake with the First Step Act. Now Biden has signed onto a lite version of Defund the Police. That won’t play well with suburbia.

I feel sad for Joe Biden while he fights his way through his declining cognitive skills. I can’t imagine how frustrated the Democrats’ presidential nominee feels as he tries to put complete sentences together. This isn’t a gaffe:


That’s a major party’ presidential candidate forgetting what he was saying. This happens far too often to just be dismissed. This happened at last week’s press conference:


If someone asked him where he was or what month it was, I don’t think he’d know. This happened at the same press conference:

It’s frightening that the guy in these videos might become the next leader of the Free World. The fact that he’s the best that Democrats have is frightening. He’s barely able put a full sentence together. Last week, people questioned whether he could string 2 straight sentences together. This week, I’m not certain that he’s capable of consistently putting a full sentence together.

If Democrats insist on trotting Biden out there as a faux moderate, then the Trump campaign should pepper the airwaves with Joe Biden’s daily dementia attacks. It isn’t like the MSM will make note of these episodes.

Anyone that wants to live in the Squad’s America is beyond stupid. Yesterday, they announced that they’d introduce the BREATHE Act. These ingrates are serious about passing this legislation. If you’re wondering what’s in the BREATHE Act, I’ll tell you.

According to the article, the BREATHE Act “would radically transform the nation’s criminal justice system by eliminating life sentences, retroactively expunging drug crimes, shutting down multiple federal agencies and permanently closing prisons and immigration detention centers, among other agenda items.” Among the federal agencies that they’re attempting to shut down are the DEA and ICE. (Perhaps you’ve heard of them?)

At the Democrats’ press availability, Ilhan Omar said that criminal justice reform isn’t enough:

“We can’t stop at criminal justice reform or policing reform,” she said during an outdoor press conference. “We are not merely fighting to tear down the systems of oppression in the criminal justice system. We are fighting to tear down systems of oppression that exist in housing, in education, in health care, in employment, [and] in the air we breathe.”

What Ilhan Omar is describing isn’t the United States that the Founding Fathers fought for. Sen. John Kennedy, (R-LA), put it best:


Growing up, I was taught that America was “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” If Biden, Pelosi and Schumer are running things, neither of those things will be true. Biden has said that he wants to transform America. Into what, Joe? This?

Let’s be emphatic about this. Until now, people haven’t talked forthrightly about Joe Biden’s mental instability. I won’t make that mistake. On his best day, Joe Biden is hard-pressed to tell the difference between a Friday in November or a Monday in July. If elected, he’d become the first president removed via the Twenty-Fifth Amendment. That wasn’t a question. That’s a prediction. Watch this, then tell me I’m wrong:


Eight seconds into this video, Biden’s eyes glaze over. He doesn’t know what he’s saying anymore. And that’s reading from a teleprompter! That’s frightening. It’s time for Republicans to stop playing nice. This isn’t a friendly debate over tax policy or education. This is a fight to make sure that the next president isn’t a puppet of the Squad.

Joe Biden used to be a failed politician. Surrounded by Bernie Sanders, the Squad and Chuck Schumer, he’d be a puppet of BLM. within 3 years, the United States wouldn’t be a constitutional republic anymore.

According to Rashida Tlaib, Democrats “it is critical that we listen to and trust the leadership of Black activists around the country.” She continued, saying “They’ve been on the front lines in defense of Black lives for decades, and it is our responsibility as legislators to hear them, respect them and follow their example.”

Let’s correct that to the Don Lemon definition. According to Lemon, “The Black Lives Matter movement was started because it was talking about police brutality. If you want an all Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities, including Black communities, then start that movement with that name. That’s not what Black Lives Matter is about. It’s not all-encompassing.”

Democrats are trying to have it both ways by playing word games. To the public, they’re saying black lives matter. To the activists, Democrats are saying that the Black Lives Matter organization matters. Democrats are exposed as dividers because they’ve booed former Democrat presidential candidate Martin O’Malley for saying that all lives matter:

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized on Saturday for saying “All lives matter” while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.

Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, “Black lives matter!” a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O’Malley responded: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”

It’s apparent that Democrats are doing whatever it takes to get African-American voters excited about Joe Biden. The Democrats insist that African-American voters catapulted Biden to the nomination. That’s true with an asterisk. Biden was stumbling and in danger of being forced out of the race.

James Clyburn endorsed him right before the South Carolina Primary. Biden went from being in danger to winning the primary. Without Clyburn’s endorsement, Biden wouldn’t be the nominee. Period.

As for paying attention to the activists, that’s a small strip of voters. Paying attention to all the voters might yield a bigger turnout though it wouldn’t help push Rep. Tlaib’s radical anti-police agenda. If Democrats see that strategy as a winner, they need to visit an optometrist. This isn’t a winner for Democrats with Tlaib, AOC, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley pushing the issue.

Biden is supposed to be the leader of the party but the Squad is dictating the Democrats’ policies. Democrats are a house divided. The Democrats’ activist wing confidently wants radical change. The Democrats’ establishment wing timidly wants ‘Squad lite’. Republicans simply want to protect communities, especially children.
