BIDEN PREPS FOR THE DEBATE
Sunday, the Biden campaign “called a lid” on the rest of this week. Yes, less than three weeks from the election, Joe Biden will not appear in public or make any statements from Sunday until Thursday. Of course, this is not because of the risk that some journalist might actually commit journalism and ask him about his son Hunter’s laptop that reeks of crack smoke and corruption. No, he needs four full days to “prepare for the next debate.”
Meanwhile, President Trump continues to do his job while also hosting rallies in two or three different states a day. Yet I predict that he’ll be just as prepared for the debate as Joe is.
I’m still trying to figure out how you can be in politics for 47 years and still need four full days of study and preparation to tell America your ideas for the second time in a month. I know what my beliefs are, and why I believe them, and I’m ready to explain and defend them at any time, and I'm not even running! I have to assume that spending four days locked down out of sight has more to do with avoiding answering questions than with preparing to answer questions.
THIS, SADLY IS CNN
CNN White House correspondent and former biased GOP Presidential debate moderator John Harwood promoted a video designed to make Michigan Republican Senate candidate John James look like he fumbled a question on preexisting conditions. In fact, he gave a thoughtful and lengthy answer. The video had been deceptively edited and spread by Democratic operatives. But fact-checking is apparently above Harwood’s paygrade, as well as that of the other DNC operatives with bylines who shared it.
On the bright side, I’m sure Twitter’s strict policies against disinformation will get them all banned. Sorry if there are typos in that last sentence, but it’s hard to type while laughing out loud.
ATTENTION PENNSYLVANIA VOTERS
If you’d like to send Washington $10,605 for each person in your household, vote for Joe Biden. For Ohioans, a vote for Joe will cost you $12,300 each. You voters in Florida, Wisconsin and Michigan will get off relatively light for your Biden votes, sending DC just $9,389, $9,020, and $8,142 apiece respectively. For a family of four, the added burden could reach up to $49,000.
If you want to see why you’ll be paying so much (and without a job, it’s going to be tough), the details are here, from a new study by the James Madison Institute on the effects of Biden's tax plans and other proposals on five key battleground states. Read ‘em and weep (and you will.)
And here's more on that study and some other very high costs that will flatten us all if enough people punch the "D" chad.
FREE SPEECH FOR CONSERVATIVES
Saturday in San Francisco, a small group of Trump supporters tried to hold a rally for free speech outside Twitter headquarters. But hundreds of what the media called “counter-protesters” (but which more accurately should be described as “fascist goons”) physically assaulted them. They punched Philip Anderson, the organizer of the event, in the face, breaking his front teeth as they taunted him and called him racist names (he’s African-American.)
There’s a photo of one of the hate-filled thugs in the act at that link. He has a bandana over his lower face, but would it really be that difficult for the police to identify and arrest him? Even in San Francisco?
Anderson will need extensive dental work to fix his teeth. Fortunately, a GoFundMe account quickly raised more than enough to cover the bill. His response to the assault on Twitter: “Joe Biden, do you still think Antifa is ‘just an idea?’”
A check of Antifa social media communications showed that this was organized in advance with the intention of attacking what they called racists, fascists, Q-Anons, and other negative epithets that they attach to anyone who disagrees with their radical leftism to justify their violence.
How much longer will innocent American citizens be expected to tolerate being assaulted by these thugs until they are finally, officially branded as what they are: an anti-American domestic terrorist group? How much longer will people be expected to give up their First Amendment rights and not resort to using their Second Amendment rights when the government and the police refuse to protect them from physical assaults?
Using violence and threats to deprive Americans of exercising their civil rights is a federal crime.
The creation of those laws was inspired by the KKK. The fact that the people breaking the teeth of a black man while calling him racist names claim to be fighting racism doesn’t make them any better, or any different, from Klansmen.
Where are the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to condemn this atrocity? Where are all the Hollywood liberal celebrities? Well, we all know the answers to those questions. The more important question is, where are the federal authorities to round up, arrest and prosecute to the full extent of the law these thugs and terrorists who are using violence to deprive people of their civil rights? Local authorities refused to act. Now, they’re committing a federal crime, and it’s time for the useless local authorities to step aside and let the feds move in and stop it.
DIGGING DEEPER INTO BIDEN'S ECONOMIC PLAN
The Democrats are running lots of ads claiming that Joe Biden’s economic policies will create 7 million new jobs and put more money in workers’ pockets. If you’re like me, you’re asking yourself, “If he knows how to do that, why didn’t he do it during the 47 previous years he spent in office?”
But the Hoover Institution think tank did more than just wonder: they dug deep into Biden’s plan to estimate what would actually be the economic results of his proposals for massive new taxes, regulations and government micro-management.
Here’s the full study.
And if you’re in a hurry, here’s an excerpt from the summary that puts it in a nutshell:
“We conclude that in the long run, Biden’s agenda would reduce full-time equivalent employment per person by about 3 percent, the capital stock per person by about 15 percent, real GDP per capita by more than 8 percent, and real consumption per household by about 7 percent. Relative to the CBO’s 2030 projections for these variables, this suggests there will be 4.9 million fewer employed individuals, $2.6 trillion less in GDP, and $1.5 trillion less consumption in that year alone. Median household income in 2030 would be $6,500 less.
While these effects may seem large, they are actually conservative estimates of the negative impact of the full Biden agenda.”
I’m not an economist, but that sure sounds to me like more unemployment and lower pay. If you lived through the Obama/Biden years, this may sound eerily familiar to you. But if your memory has been short-circuited by four years of media propaganda, maybe this will help refresh it.
