In commentaries over the past couple of days, I’ve illustrated how quickly freedom can be lost --- Hong Kong is the current real-life example --- and shown the true nature of the threat our country faces, as we need to know what that is before we can combat it. Turns out, it really is very much like the Chinese Communist Party that clamped down on Hong Kong, with the same Marxist underpinnings as the CCP.

For example, let’s take a look at Black Lives Matter, which has shown itself NOT to be as much about black lives as many thought. Thanks to Tucker Carlson for bringing attention to a CNN interview segment with “America’s Got Talent” host Terry Crews criticizing BLM’s indifference towards black-on-black shootings. Host Don Lemon said this: “The Black Lives Matter movement was started because there was talking about police brutality. If you want an ‘All-Black-Lives-Matter’ movement that talks about gun violence in communities including, you know, black communities, then start that movement with that name, but that’s not what Black Lives Matter is about.”



This morning, in two 7-2 decisions, the Supreme Court allowed Democratic Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr. access to President Trump’s personal and business tax returns, but denied Democratic Congressional investigators access to them.

There are more details on the rulings at the link. In the meantime, we’ll start the clock ticking on how long it takes the Manhattan DA to illegally leak the tax returns to the Congressional Democrats and the New York Times. Tick, tick, tick…


A group of Biden and Bernie Sanders supporters are working on what’s called the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, a compromise suggested Democratic platform that appears to be largely cut-and-pasted (plagiarized?) from Bernie’s 2020 campaign platform of straight-up, open-borders socialism.

Here’s an example of the kind of “moderate” policies you’re likely to get under a President Biden: not only would the estimated 11-22 million illegal immigrants currently in the US get amnesty (and Obamacare), and virtually all immigration laws and border controls be removed, but the US would be declared an asylum for all the world’s migrants. That’s currently estimated at about 160 million, or roughly half the current US population.


New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman is getting a lot of attention for a piece that many interpret as a trial balloon for the DNC, to see if Americans will actually buy their feeble excuses for Joe Biden staying hidden in his basement until the election and not debating President Trump. Biden already agreed to three debates (his campaign taunted Trump for not being brave enough to debate Biden more than three times, even though Trump requested four debates.)

Now, it’s obviously dawning on them, to their horror, that Biden will actually have to show up and talk without a prompter or a ventriloquist for a total of six hours, which is 10,000 hours in Joe Biden ad lib time. So Friedman is test-marketing a couple of excuses: that Biden shouldn’t debate until Trump releases his old income tax records (surely, the issue that weighs most heavily on Americans’ minds at this moment in history) and that because Trump “lies” all the time, poor Joe would have to use all his debate time correcting him (Joe Biden being the very definition of a walking fount of encyclopedic knowledge.) So Biden should only debate Trump if he’ll agree to have a panel of “fact-checkers” there to pick apart everything he says (and coincidentally, use up all the time when Joe would’ve been talking.) That would make it a debate between Trump and a panel of liberal advocates, with Joe reduced to spectator.

A few quick asides: First, that “lie” accusation is rich coming from a writer for the former “paper of record” that’s now a full-time fake news dispenser and DNC propaganda organ and that spent three years deluding its liberal readers with “Russian collusion” fairy tales. Second, we all know what “fact-checker” means these days: someone who declares every policy dispute, difference of opinion, debatable minor detail or obvious joke by a Republican to be a “Pants On Fire LIE!” Meanwhile, the Democrats can put out an ad that tells 10 blatant lies about Trump, and the media doesn’t bat an eye.  And third, we already saw how well it works to have debate moderators play “fact-checker” in 2012 when CNN’s Candy Crowley “corrected” Mitt Romney’s description of Obama’s handling of Benghazi, in effect doing Obama’s debating for him, even though she later admitted Romney had been right.

While the column was obviously intended to bash Trump and lay the groundwork for Biden avoiding debates, all it did in reality was draw renewed attention to the herculean efforts by Democrats to keep their candidate hidden and renew the uncomfortable questions about his fitness for office.

Still, I like to be helpful whenever I can, even to my political opponents. So since “Trump will lie” and “He hasn’t released his tax records yet” don’t seem to be persuading anybody that Joe Biden would be justified in not debating, here are eight more suggestions to fill out…

The Top Reasons Joe Biden Can’t Debate Trump

8. Joe left the border open, and his border collie got in and ate his debate prep.

7. He’s only been in Washington for 42 years and hasn’t yet had time to finish his plan to transform America overnight.

6. Can’t debate until “Beto” O’Rourke finishes teaching him to speak bad Spanish.

5. Won’t debate until the organizers assure him in writing that none of the questioners will be dog-faced pony soldiers.

4. No debates until it’s agreed they will air exclusively on Joe’s all-time favorite TV channel: BET.

3. In the spirit of Obamacare, Americans have to elect Biden first and then find out what he will do to them.

2. Hunter hasn’t finished finalizing the sponsorship deal to put the Chinese flag on his necktie.

And the #1 Joe Biden excuse for not debating Trump…

1. Joe’s pretty sure he already debated Trump in 1949.

    I hope Democrats in Congress never even get to sniff the envelope that holds Trump's tax returns.
    How hypocritical for them to go after his tax returns after Harry Reid pulled his little stunt on the senate floor in 2012, falsely alleging that Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes!!!!!!

    Joe Biden is imitating the language of President Trump. Biden has a history of imitating and stealing the language of others. Biden just said we will make things in America again, with American steel, and make American jobs, and we will stop China from stealing our intellectual property. President Trump said that almost 4 years ago and has brought back to America thousands of manufacturing jobs, has brought back American steel, and continues to confront China while facts show Obama and Biden lost millions of manufacturing jobs to other countries and increased the number of American's who had to go on assistance and food stamps. Joe Biden is again imitating the language of someone else attempting to fool people.

    Joe Biden Is and has been a complete Farce and I find him just to be a card board cut out being used by the Left. Over the last 4 months I have stayed away from as many encounters with the Wuhan Virus. I am angry at the Governors that sent Wuhan Virus patients back to the Nursing Homes. I am angry that most deaths certificates are labeled Covet 19 when not proven to be the cause of death. I am outraged by the fact that those certificates were done to cause fear in the public and to shut out the intellect of senior citizens. Many Seniors knew socialism was the goal of the Left I have ranted about it for 8 months none of what the Left was doing made sense the young people that have not been exposed to the real mission of Socialism and has bought into Socialism thats why we have Bernie Bros and such. To keep the elderly out of the way by falsely writing false death certificates should be investigated and should be charged of a crime. No longer can we trust Government to do anything right. Even in death we get Politically Incorrect.

    Well there are ways the Trump campaign handle that. =) First, if Biden's people want to make a big deal of Trump not releasing his tax information while Biden did, in the interests of full transparency Biden should release the information on his cognitive ability tests like Trump did. They are claiming they want a level playing field after all. Second, specify a professional, bonded research team, with no affiliation to either candidate, as the fact checkers. Then arrange for them to have time after the debate, with costs covered equally by both campaign funds, to verify the fact on national TV and present any errors/lies they find. This would, of course, allow the debates to proceed without interruption.

    ONE NATION UNDER GOD ! It does not say global or world - our strength of leadership is only as strong as our nation itself. A building is only strong if it is built on the Cornerstone.
