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.

It isn’t difficult to prove that Democrats hate America. Though they’re sneaky in making that case, it’s there nonetheless. John Hinderaker exposes Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan as an America-hating Democrat by highlighting something that she posted on Instagram:

The Democrats’ hatred of America shines through with their hate-filled diatribes against the Founding Fathers. Democrats insist that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. That’s a historical fact. It’s also a terribly incomplete view of these men.

A quick view of the Bible shows imperfect men (Outside of Christ, that’s the only kind there is) being picked by God to lead His people. Moses murdered an Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew slave. God chose Moses to lead Israel out of Egypt after 400 years of captivity. David was called “a man after God’s own heart.” He killed Goliath. Later in life, he killed Uriah, the man who was married to Bathsheba when David got her pregnant. Ultimately, David repented of his sin, then turned the kingdom over to his son Solomon.

Saying that their lives were complex is understatement. Why should we judge Washington and Jefferson as though the only thing they did was own slaves? Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. Washington was the general who turned the colonies into the United States. Eventually, Lincoln won the Civil War, freed the slaves and wrote the Emancipation Proclamation.

This witch hates America:

Tear it all down, she demands. She doesn’t know what to replace it with. She just knows that she hates America for saving her sorry arse. Then there’s Tammy Duckworth. She’s campaigning to be Joe Biden’s running mate. Duckworth was criticized by Tucker Carlson during Monday night’s show. Tuesday night, Carlson challenged her to come on his show. Sen. Duckworth’s press flack insisted that her client wouldn’t come on until Carlson apologized for what he said the night before. Instead of apologizing to her, Carlson ripped her apart:

Democrats don’t identify what’s wrong with the U.S. They just insist that it’s evil. That’s repulsive coming from Ilhan Omar’s mouth. It’s worse coming from Tammy Duckworth’s mouth. She once served in the U.S. military. She used to be a patriot. That status ended when she became a cheap politician. Just like John McCain, Sen. Duckworth is a military hero and a political hack.

Sen. Duckworth doesn’t love the U.S. anymore. She’s proven that by saying outrageous things to become Joe Biden’s running mate. In a way, I hope that happens. I’d love to watch Mike Pence carve her up in the VP debate.

Thank God that the Black Lives Matter Movement knows everything. They must be omniscient after emphatically stating that “We know that police don’t keep us safe.” I always thought that police kept people safe. Didn’t police officers run into the World Trade Center towers on 9/11? The police in that instance certainly tried to keep people safe.

According to BLM’s website, “We know that police don’t keep us safe — and as long as we continue to pump money into our corrupt criminal justice system at the expense of housing, health, and education investments, we will never be truly safe. That’s why we are calling to #DefundPolice and #InvestInCommunities…”

Defunding the police is stupid. They’re overwhelmed as it is. This article highlights why better funding of the police is required:

Gunfire and carnage are sweeping across America’s streets.

At least six children ages 6 to 14 died in a spate of shootings over the past five days, as the level of gun violence and murder surpassed the deadly total at the same time last year. Chicago reported 87 shootings and 17 fatalities from Thursday evening through Sunday night. At least 13 of the shooting victims were under 14 years old. New York suffered 44 shootings and 11 deaths from gun violence from Friday through Sunday. Philadelphia reported 31 shootings and seven deaths from gun violence.

What organization or movement would call for defunding the police when we know what works? This isn’t working. BLM is part of the problem. They aren’t part of the solution.

The simple truth is that cities need better trained forces. Cities need lots more forces, too:

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison on Monday said officers held back because “it was tactically unsafe.”

“As the Baltimore Police Department was responding to several life and death incidents across the city, a small number of officers were assigned to assist with peaceful protests taking place in the downtown area,” he said in a statement. “As the number of protesters grew, it was tactically unsafe for those few officers to position themselves between the protesters and the Christopher Columbus Statue in an attempt to prevent vandalism and destruction.”

What’s most needed is a change of political leadership that won’t throw officers under the bus. Each time a Bill de Blasio, Jenny Durkan or Jacob Frey hesitates or doesn’t let their officers do their job, it creates doubt with the officers.

Black Lives Matter isn’t behind all of these shootings. They’re just the organization that’s lobbying for inadequate force funding.

A little over an hour ago, the Media Wing of the Democratic Party, aka the Agenda Media, laid an egg. These people should be stripped of their credentials and never let back into the building. Their performance was that disgraceful.

This weekend, an 8-year-old little girl was shot and killed in Atlanta. In Chicago, a little 7-year-old girl was shot and killed. This little girl was visiting her grandmother. In Chicago, 87 people were shot, killing 17. Despite the destruction happening in Chicago, Atlanta and NYC, the White House press corps didn’t ask a single question about this violence. They asked 12 questions about the Confederate Flag and NASCAR. They badgered Kayleigh McEnany about COVID.

The WH Press Corps is as out-of-touch as Democrats are. This is further proof that black lives only matter to Democrats when they’re killed by police officers. This is proof that little African-American children getting murdered by other African-Americans don’t rate even a blip on the Agenda Media’s radar. That’s utterly disgusting.

The opening statement of today’s briefing was about this violence. The first question was “Why is the president so supportive of flying the Confederate Flag?” The reporter then asked multiple follow-up questions on that subject. It’s clear that this line of questioning was preplanned. It’s clear that the goal is to accuse President Trump of being a racist without using the word racist. What a disgusting bunch of partisans these media people are.

UPDATE: This is Kayleigh McEnany’s closing:


This is Harris Faulkner’s reaction to that closing:
