Here’s more on Mike Bloomberg’s epic bonfire of money burned for his failed Presidential campaign. It turns out that not only were his ground efforts ineffective but some of his alleged canvassers were actually taking his money and canvassing for other candidates (ahem-Bernie!) and even making up lists of nonexistent voter contacts they hadn’t really even made.
But hey: you can trust all those polls from liberal media outlets! That data is solid!
A large part of what has helped bring back the US economy has been President Trump removing the chains that the Obama Administration put on the oil and gas industry. It’s led not only to less expensive and more reliable fuel supplies for US consumers, but it’s greatly boosted fuel exports, allowed us to sell energy at a profit to allies who no longer have to buy it from Russia (a win-win) and weakened OPEC, leaving us no longer at the mercy of Middle Eastern oil producers.
Naturally, the left thinks that anything that’s helped America stronger must be destroyed, so they’ve targeted our domestic energy industry for extinction (as if they don't have enough to worry about now.) Leftist politicians and celebrities are constantly flying around on private jets to lecture us about how bad fossil fuels are. Joe Biden has promised to destroy US energy jobs and even jail fossil fuel executives for their crimes against Gaia (never mind that thanks to abundant US natural gas, our rise in CO2 output has decreased while those of the self-righteous nations that stayed in the Paris Accord haven’t.)
Well, it appears that the industry is taking this threat seriously enough that they’ve decided to start punching back instead of just being a punching bag. Last week, Pennsylvania natural gas executive Nick DeIuliis, normally the model of the quiet, reserved professional, gave a speech in Pittsburgh signaling that he’s fed up and ready to stand up against the demonization and ridicule of his industry. He stressed that he doesn’t mean all Democrats, some of whom are supportive of his industry, but “a cabal of misguided, insulated elites.” He called them an “extremist leftist elite whose common trait is that they are anti-capitalist, anti-middle class, anti-individual, and frankly, anti-American."
He also threw a punch at hypocritical tech companies and pension and hedge fund managers who badmouth and divest from the domestic energy industry while doing huge business with China, the biggest polluter in the world.
Pennsylvania is a crucial swing state that helped elect President Trump, and that the Democrats are desperate to win back. Can they do it while declaring open war on many Pennsylvanians’ jobs, offering nothing in return but vaporous promises of government handouts, “retraining” and “good-paying new green jobs” that seldom materialize? Trump is going to fight hard to win Pennsylvania and other energy-producing states. Mr. DeIuliis’ speech is a welcome sign that he won’t be fighting that battle alone, and that some Americans whom the left has gotten away with demonizing for a long time are at last finding inspiration in Trump and starting to fight back.
Former New York mayor and current Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was back before the cameras the weekend after Super Tuesday, stating bluntly what many have been thinking about Joe Biden’s rising number of inexplicable "gaffes."
On Saturday’s WATTERS WORLD, he said, “I think that Bernie was so frightening that they picked the man that is showing obvious signs of dementia, which is astounding. Because if you consider that what he’s displaying gets worse, what’s he going to be like three years from now? If he doesn’t know what state he’s in and can’t figure out who his wife is? And if he thinks 150 million people, which is half the population, roughly, in America, got killed, then what’s he going to be like two years from now when that illness gets worse? ...We’re dealing with who should be the President of the United States, and we shouldn’t pussyfoot around this. The man has something wrong with him, and it’s serious.”
(It should be noted that Biden’s campaign denies that he has any mental or health issues, and I don't endorse diagnosing people at a distance.)
But as for Bernie being frightening, the question follows, “Frightening to whom?” Sad to say, Bernie’s socialist and even pro-communist views aren’t frightening at all to some in his party, particularly the activists, many of whom are downright Marxist revolutionaries. It’s just that they know his increasing tendency towards outspokenness on the issue of socialism won’t help him in the general election. In other words, they lament that Bernie doesn’t realize he’s only supposed to praise Castro when he’s in a crowd consisting exclusively of far-left party activists who share that view. Oops!
Imagine how desperate Democrats are to defeat President Trump –- how much they must hate him. Given the choice of 1) a hardline, ranting socialist, or 2) a less outspoken “moderate” who is embracing every far-left idea in his party and who might be suffering cognitive decline, they would vote for either one in a heartbeat. The only reason they’re showing preference for Biden over Bernie is that they perceive the hardline socialist would have a harder time winning.
Of course, it’s not the real Donald Trump they hate, but a caricature that they themselves have created, with plenty of help from the all-too-eager media. They’re brainwashed into hating a fictional character: a racist simpleton who hates gays, Muslims and women, who puts children in cages, who cares only for himself and has never helped anyone else in his life, who has said all Mexicans crossing the border are rapists, who aspires to be a dictator and who is an agent of Vladimir Putin. Who wouldn’t want to defeat THAT, even if it had to be by someone of diminished capacity, as long as he had a sharp VP hovering close by?
That’s the way Democrats rationalize what they’re doing. The flaw in their argument is that none of this characterization of Trump is true. In fact, I could easily make the case that the opposite is true. They’ve created a huge orange straw man to hate and to take down.
To make this happen, the party machinery has obviously decided to choose Biden over Bernie, and that’s why the other candidates are falling into line now behind Biden. They’re looking at what they can get in the new administration should the Dems (shudder) win, and they know Bernie won’t be the one at the top of that ticket. Maybe they’d like to be chosen as Biden’s running mate. Poor things --- don’t they realize that Party leaders are already factoring in that any VP of Biden’s will have to be the person the Party intends to be the next “real” President? Sorry, failed candidates, Biden’s #2 won’t be any of you. With stakes this huge, it’ll have to be a superstar, a powerful hard-hitter: maybe Michelle Obama (the more palatable choice) or Hillary Clinton (the more pushy choice). How could you also-rans possibly believe you have a chance against either of them?
The DNC just has to keep Biden going a few months longer, while they use him. Adam Corolla, speaking on FOX NEWS’ THE NEXT REVOLUTION with Steve Hilton, had a great idea: The Democrats could borrow the idea from CYRANO DE BERGERAC and have someone off-camera, a real-life “Cyrano,” feeding Biden the words to say. I’d call it “Cyrano de Bidenac.”
Giuliani acknowledged that Biden has always been gaffe-prone but went to say, “...Right now, we’ve got something worse going on. What I see --- I mean, I’ve had relatives, and I think we probably all have.” Speaking to the media, he said, “If you can’t figure out what’s going on with Joe Biden right now, then you’re covering up. And if you can’t figure out that he was involved in the bribery, then you’re really so naive, you shouldn’t be covering anything...I investigated lots of crimes; this would be one of the easier ones to prove. Knock-down easy – documents, audio tapes, videotapes, confessions; you don’t need anything else.”
Giuliani suggested the one defense there might be: that Biden was “so out of it,” he was actually telling the truth when he said he didn’t know about his family’s under-the-table financial activities. Under normal conditions, any father would want to know how his inexperienced, addiction-plagued son made so much money.
"If he really doesn’t know that his brother and his son were selling him out for 20 years and became multi-millionaires, then he belongs somewhere else, not in the White House, and you know where he belongs,” said Giuliani. Of course, that argument is academic, as Giuliani claims to have witnesses who will swear that Biden was well aware of what he calls the “Biden family enterprise.” He says the only reason it’s affecting the presidential race now is that it wasn’t investigated when he brought it up in February. It was covered up “by the press, by the Democrats, with the lies that the case had been debunked.”
Democrats who would run a damaged-goods candidate for President in a scheme to get their power back, are, as Giuliani said, “completely corrupted by the coverage they get...You know, if someone’s not disciplined for doing something wrong, they do it again and again...Now, Biden and Hillary Clinton don’t believe in a million years that they’re going to get punished for the kinds of crimes they commit, for which all of us would go to jail. The press enables them.”
If we don’t change this, he said, America doesn’t have much a future in terms of equal justice for both Republicans and Democrats and getting politics out of the justice system.
Giuliani also offered an interesting parallel: When he looks back on his encounters with Robert Mueller regarding the special counsel investigation, he recalls that Mueller seemed “out of it.” (And, of course, we all noticed this during congressional testimony on “his” report that he hadn't even seemed to have read.) Giuliani theorizes that Mueller was chosen to oversee that investigation precisely because he’d “let the animals run the zoo.” That could be what they’re planning for the White House as well.
