Biden thinks he can insult his way to unifying the country

 Red States:Remember when Hillary Clinton spoke about many Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables?” Joe Biden had a little bit of that kind of a moment today while he was campaigning in Pennsylvania.One of Biden’s pitches is that he’s going to be a unifier.Except he’s been anything but, as he’s been nasty and lying about the president throughout his campaign. And it’s not only the president who Biden has attacked. He’s the only candidate I think I’ve ever seen actually insult voters to their faces, even essentially threatening to fight them. He’s called voters “fat,” “old,” “dog faced pony soldier,” “full of sh**” and even challenged that autoworker in Michigan to “go outside.” Whenever he is challenged, Biden snaps out at whoever does the challenging. It’s really astounding that Biden is painted by media as the one who is somehow nicer or more controlled, given this.But he was trying on Saturday to pitch the idea that if he won he would work for all Americans whether they voted …

Erdogan acting like an Islamist wacko

 Tom Rogan:President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey spent Friday reminding the world why he is Vladimir Putin's preferred useful idiot. Continuing in that vein on Saturday, Erdogan tripled down on his imperial fanaticism.Speaking at a party rally, Erdogan offered three repudiations of the democratic international order. First, he attacked France over its commitment to defend its democratic values and way of life. Second, Erdogan pledged to keep fueling the bloody war between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Third, he promised new assaults on Greek sovereignty.On the first count, Erdogan offered vicious insults to a nation in mourning. France is grappling with the brutal assassination of a teacher by a jihadist for showing his class Charlie Hebdo's Prophet Muhammad cartoon. Defending the Fifth Republic's secular constitutional foundation, President Emmanuel Macron has introduced reforms to obstruct Islamic extremists from enforcing intellectual and sexual segregation. Rightly also r…

The weak minds of the censors of social media

The closer we get to election day the more both sides tend to present evidence or arguments against the opposition.  Readers tend to ignore the arguments of the opposition.  When people resort to censoring the arguments or factual assertions of the opposition, the readers looking for that material begin to have a keener interest in finding it and start ignoring the censors and go right to the source.I still have a menu item for blogs I check regularly and I highly recommend that conservatives continue to do that so they can avoid the liberal gatekeepers of social media.Social media companies would be wiser to let their readers put their counter-arguments on their site than censor things they might disagree with.  That is what freedom of speech should be all about.Do they really think that they will change minds by censoring content?For example, I have been of the opinion that Joe Biden has been actively trying to monetize his office and enrich his family.  There is ample evidence to …

How Hunter Biden and John Kerry's stepson helped Chicoms get stealth technology

 Jennifer van Laar:For the last 50 years, the United States military has enjoyed air superiority over essentially every other nation on the planet. In addition to good-old American ingenuity and freedom to create, this superiority was created and is maintained by the government’s support of ongoing research and development to maintain that superiority. The research and development process for new fighter jets can take decades, as with the F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). China has always lagged significantly behind the United States in this department, but they’ve recently made major strides.A significant factor in China’s progress comes as a result of the 2015 acquisition of Henniges Automotive, a Michigan company whose anti-vibration technology is used on the F-35 (stealth) fighter, by Aviation Industry Corp of China (AVIC), the state-owned entity that produces fighter jets for the Chinese military.Guess whose company partnered with AVIC in that acquisition? That…

Pennsylvania coal miners firmly in Trump camp

 Salena Zito:The one thing all the guys know about Sara Vance is she never cries.

Which is why her co-workers — all men — dropped their tools when Vance suddenly broke down in a flood of tears after she failed to shovel coal into a conveyor belt.

Pregnant with her first child and just weeks before the due date, she was 1,200 feet below the surface of the earth with no easy way out.

“I wasn’t in pain or going into labor,” Vance said. “I was just so frustrated because my belly was getting in my way of shoveling. I take pride in being able to do my job and those tears just started falling the more exasperated I became.”

Within minutes a dozen men were at her side. Vance was placed in the mantrip and driven through the seven miles of underground maze at Harvey Mine to an elevator where a stretcher waited to take her to the surface.

“I told them I do not need a stretcher and I certainly do not need an ambulance because I was not having a baby at that moment. I was just mad I couldn’t do my job,…

Joe Biden knew his family was trading on his name and monetizing his office

 Peter Schweitzer and Seamus Bruner:Thanks to three brave Americans, we now know that Joe Biden has long misled the public about his involvement with his family’s foreign business entanglements while he served as vice president.

At considerable personal risk, former Biden family business partners Tony Bobulinski and Bevan Cooney, and computer shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac, have come forward with tens of thousands of primary-source documents — internal corporate records, emails, and text messages — detailing years of business dealings that centered on trading on the Biden name. This material suggests that, despite Joe Biden’s insistence that he knew nothing about his family’s business deals, he was well aware of his son Hunter Biden’s business ventures in China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and elsewhere.

These new troves constitute hard evidence of Biden family corruption, and confirm our reporting dating back to our 2018 book “Secret Empires.”

In 2018, when we first broke the foreign influence…

Leaving a Chicom controlled Hong Kong is a rational response to a country whose word is no good

NY Times: As China Clamps Down, Activists Flee Hong Kong for Refuge in the WestChina calls them “violent criminals.” Asylum seekers from Hong Kong are the latest catalyst for deteriorating relations between Beijing and Western countries.China reneged on its commitment to allow freedom in Hong Kong and smart people want to avoid living under a control-freak government.  Freedom is evidently a scary concept to the Chicoms.

Democrat chances of flipping Texas House are remote

NY Times: Democrats Hope 2020 Is the Year They Flip the Texas HouseRepublicans have controlled the state government since 2003. An anti-Trump surge could give Democrats a crucial boost.Their main chance is probably by cheating with vote harvesting scams in Harris and Dallas counties.  In my mostly rural county, I do not recall any Democrat House candidates on the ballot when I voted.  If there were any, I voted against them.  There was literally no indication that Democrats were actively seeking office in Washington Country.  None.  Whether they will get away with their vote harvesting scams and taking advantage of people in nursing homes will depend on the outcome of litigation in the Texas court where the GOP is questioning their tactics.  It is a story that much of the media has avoided reporting.It is hard to see Democrats taking the Texas House when they have little likelihood of Biden carrying the state.  Actually, Republicans have made inroads in several formerly Democrat areas …

The day the Bidens took over a company

 Politico:The day the Bidens took over Paradigm Global Advisors was a memorable one.

In the late summer of 2006 Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Joe’s younger brother, James, purchased the firm. On their first day on the job, they showed up with Joe’s other son, Beau, and two large men and ordered the hedge fund’s chief of compliance to fire its president, according to a Paradigm executive who was present.

After the firing, the two large men escorted the fund’s president out of the firm’s midtown Manhattan office, and James Biden laid out his vision for the fund’s future. “Don’t worry about investors,” he said, according to the executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing fear of retaliation. “We've got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”

At the time, the senator was just months away from both assuming the chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and launching his second presidential bid. According to the executive, James Biden made it…

Biden corruption story is breaking through the Democrat media censorship

 Breitbart:President Donald Trump’s attacks about Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, were “by far the dominant storyline” online about the presidential debate this week, Axios revealed Saturday, citing social media interactions tallied by NewsWhip.On Saturday, Axios reported:Coverage of business dealings by Joe Biden’s son — and pre-debate allegations by one of his former business associates, Tony Bobulinski — garnered more than twice as much online activity (likes, comments, shares) as the runner-up.The second-place topic — also pushed by Republicans — was the former vice president’s comments on oil and fracking.Social media interactions on stories about Hunter and Bobulinski reportedly stood at 1.3 million, far more than the discussions (nearly 545,000) over the second-place topic.During Thursday’s debate, President Trump accused Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden of a pay-for-play scheme in Ukraine and China related to his son’s business dealings in tho…

The conspiracy to hide Biden

 David Limbaugh:Have we ever witnessed a stranger anomaly in modern presidential politics than the craven contempt the Biden campaign, the media and social media have shown for the American electorate in their disgraceful conspiracy to hide Joe Biden?

What bona fide presidential candidate would arrogantly hide in his basement during the heat of a campaign, especially in the last few weeks of an ever-tightening one?

If the liberal media weren’t providing Biden cover, he couldn’t get away with this. If they were even raising questions about his intentional invisibility, this campaign would look far different, and far less surreal.

As President Donald Trump has hopscotched the country, traveling thousands of miles to appear at vigorous, humongous campaign rallies, Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, are nowhere to be found. We’ve never had a presidential candidate virtually opt out of the campaign.

Please don’t use the virus as an excuse, unless you’re willing to point out that T…

The media and their 'white supremacy' canard

 Don Brown:It seems that at every debate in which he has participated, whether in 2016 or 2020, Donald Trump gets peppered with the same, worn-out demand to “denounce white supremacists.”But based on what?  Whether it’s Chris Wallace, or Savannah Guthrie, or Jim Acosta, some other loudmouth reporter screaming the “denounce” demand as the President walks by, this demand, premised upon a lie, gets repeated ad nauseam by dishonest journalists. Their purpose is to create a false impression that Trump has done something, or said something in the past, that makes him a “racist.”But nothing could be further from the truth.The president’s record shows something quite the opposite of the insinuations shouted by the Trump-hating members of the liberal media.  In fact, the president’s record, over time, pictures a man with a huge heart and great compassion and love for the African-American community in the United States.Where to start?February 2, 1998: Donald Trump sat next to host Jesse Jackson…

Biden corruption ads

 Legal Insurrection:The latest ad from the Republican Party for President Donald Trump attacked the mainstream media for all of a sudden not reporting or downplaying Hunter Biden’s scandals.Trump also released three ads attacking Joe Biden for selling out America “to make his family rich.” Biden’s ScandalsThree other ads point out Hunter Biden taking advantage of his family name while emphasizing the documents that show Daddy Joe mentioned in ways to split up profits from deals with a Chinese company.One of the ads replays the obviously lie Joe told the media: “I have never discussed with my son or anyone else anything to do with their businesses. Period.”The documents show that is a lie. Media...The media has since gone mostly silent on Biden corruption.  They now appear to be concerned about hurting his election chances if the corruption is in the news.  There has been an effort at the social media companies and in the mainstream media to silence the news about Biden corruption It is …

Residents of Wuhan sue officials over handling of virus

 Eva Fu:Two Chinese citizens are seeking to hold officials from the country’s initial virus epicenter accountable over their handling of the CCP virus outbreak.Yao Qing, a petitioner from the hard-hit Wuhan City, filed lawsuits on Oct. 22 against the city government, saying that some of its virus rules had violated their rights.The city entered a full lockdown on Jan. 23 with little prior notice and shut down all transportation in and out of Wuhan, prompting panic as residents scrambled to stockpile supplies. On Feb. 10, the officials issued further restrictions that effectively sealed residents in their homes.These measures violated the citizens’ personal liberty and never should have happened, Yao said in an interview on Oct. 22.Yao became an activist last year after a nearby government-run railroad construction project caused cracks and deformation to her home. She subsequently lost her job (which has a 200,000 yuan annual salary, or around $29,910) after injuring her hand in a scu…

The 'fact check' scam by big tech

 Epoch Times:Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson said fact checks and information curation by big tech companies are “dangerous” as they are part of broader efforts by special interest groups to control and censor information that people see.Attkisson argued these special interest groups traditionally employed the news as their vehicle to present their information to the public, but with the rise of social media and the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, efforts have since been expanded.“Starting in 2016, they needed to create the perception among us that we needed our information online curated, and fact-checked, and culled through by third parties. And now we’re seeing the fruits of that, you know, the poisonous fruit of that whereby we’ve acceded our control to the special interests that control us through the big tech companies,” Attkisson told The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders.”“And now they’re telling us we can’t access certain facts, certain studies, certa…

The plot against the President revealed

 The Federalist:Based on Lee Smith’s book of the same name, “The Plot Against The President” tells the incredible story of the Russian collusion hoax in documentary form. It’s pro-Trump, but also a work of journalistic import given the critical contributions from witnesses and stakeholders who recall the investigation in detail. What’s more, “The Plot Against The President” is stylish, making a compelling case with the benefit of Hollywood flair, rare for overtly conservative productions.

That’s easier to do when your director is a USC film school graduate and the daughter of Hollywood royalty. Such is the case with Amanda Milius, whose father is legendary writer and director John Milius, the man behind “Dirty Harry,” “Red Dawn,” and much more. “I have the unique position to be not a political person that decided to make a movie, but I’m a film person that happened to land in politics for a period of time,” she told The Federalist in a Monday interview.

It shows. In Milius’s hands, “Th…

Biden bribe tapes and Ukraine corruption

The Ukraine President admits on tape that the prosecutor Biden wanted to be fired was not corrupt.  The tape is about 25 minutes long.  It tells the story of Biden's corruption joining a corrupt leader in Ukraine.

Biden's war against US energy

 C. Boydon Gray:Biden: OK to Frack for Natural Gas—Not OK to Burn It...

This Green New Deal goal would never get congressional approval, but that may not matter. Biden promises to achieve his clean energy goals by fiat, issuing executive orders of “unprecedented reach that go well beyond the Obama-Biden Administration platform.” A Biden administration would move to achieve its goal of “carbon-free” electricity generation through an even more aggressive version of President Obama’s “Clean Power Plan” regulations. This Clean Power Plan 2.0 would require utilities to idle, then dismantle, their natural gas power plants.

President Trump’s accusation that Joe Biden would ban fracking is therefore closer to the truth than the fact checkers care to admit. It does not take a master’s degree in communications or journalism to realize that a ban on using natural gas is a ban on extracting it, whether through fracking or through ordinary drilling. That’s the Biden plan.

Media doing a worse job than they did in 2016

Kyle Smith:The media promised to do better after Trump’s 2016 win — instead, they got worse...It sounded promising. But what did the media do after the dust settled and Trump geared up for reelection? Like a guy who comes out of rehab and heads straight for the nearest martini lounge, they relapsed. They couldn’t help themselves. They went back to putting 99 percent of their efforts into telling themselves a story they all believed: that Donald Trump was not just a horrible Republican president — aren’t they all? — but an actual threat to the Republic: Fifth Avenue Hitler, Benito Trumpolini, Orange-White nationalist. Virtually every national story they told the public ignored heartland concerns and came straight from the point of view of liberal Manhattan — Fantasy Island. To the media, Russia collusion is just about to be proven after four years of trying, Trump’s tweets matter more than Trump’s economy, and a pandemic that hit harder in Western Europe is all his fault.

Biden, Inc. tried to get other Democrats invoved in their scheme

 NY Post:A failed Hunter Biden business venture — which an ex-partner said involved Joe Biden — targeted “key domestic contacts” including Gov. Cuomo for potential projects across the country, documents reveal.

A May 15, 2017, memo naming potential contacts was sent by Joe Biden’s brother Jim to his nephew and three other men who all formed a limited liability company to partner with another firm on “global and/or domestic” projects involving “infrastructure, energy, financial services and other strategic sectors,” the documents show.

The other company was backed by a since-vanished Chinese energy tycoon and was to “be primarily responsible for arranging financing and execution” of the projects, according to the documents released by Tony Bobulinksi, who was CEO of the joint venture.

The memo, titled “Key domestic contacts for phase one target projects,” noted that Cuomo “is moving forward with major infrastructure projects such as the long-stalled Tappan Zee Bridge replacement and the m…

The media coverup of Biden corruption

 Breitbart:At a campaign rally in Florida on Friday, President Donald Trump accused his opponent of working for big tech and big media companies.“Joe Biden works for big tech, big media. They’re his boss,” Trump said to his crowd of supporters in Pensacola, Florida.Trump referred to corporate media’s refusal to cover the new details surrounding Hunter Biden’s pursuit of lucrative overseas deals. He also called out social media companies for censoring stories about the scandal.“They keep it nice and quiet,” Trump said. “He’s got a scandal, corrupt politician. They keep it out. They don’t want to let any story go.”One of Hunter Biden’s former partners, Tony Bobulinski, claimed Thursday evening that Joe Biden knew about the family’s foreign business dealings and even got a cut of some of the profits as “the big guy” mentioned in Hunter’s emails.The president praised his hometown paper, The New York Post, for publishing details proving that not only did Biden know details about his relati…

A report that overlooks Antifa and BLM terrorist attacks?

NY Times:Far-Right Groups Are Behind Most U.S. Terrorist Attacks, Report FindsWhite supremacist groups have carried out a majority of “terrorist plots and attacks” this year, according to a report by a think tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies. I do not believe this report. Antifa and BLM have been engaged in riots, arson, and theft on a massive scale across the country terrorizing the public and the police. I am not aware of the alleged terrorist attacks by "white supremacists." Where are they happening and who are the persons alleged to have engaged in these attacks?
Is the Center for Strategic and International Studies ignorant of the attacks by the leftist groups?

Democrats' bad-faith response to Barrett nomination

NY Times: Democrats Try to Shut Down Senate, Seeking to Stain Barrett ConfirmationLacking the ability to block President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are using the final days of the debate to stoke outrage among voters about the rush to confirm her.Well, I am outraged at the Democrats' bad-faith response to Barrett.  Their childish response should be seen as another reason to vote against every Democrat running for office.  When it comes to the Supreme Court, the Democrats have engaged in abusive behavior ever since the Bork nomination.  They engage in political hissy fits and attempt to smear Republican nominees routinely.  They want a liberal majority to impose the evils of liberalism through judicial fiats because their schemes are too unpopular to be approved through the legislative process.
