BIDEN'S VEEP PICK HELPED BAIL OUT RIOTERS
Here’s something that would get wall-to-wall “SCANDAL!!!” coverage if Trump had done it: the radical Antifa/BLM thug who is suspected of murdering a Trump supporter in Portland was arrested in July for being involved in a riot where he was found to be carrying a knife and an illegally possessed loaded firearm. So why was he still walking around loose to murder people? Because just like with all the other “peaceful protesters” who’ve been arrested, the DA decided to let him go and not pursue any charges.
This is what cities across America are suffering, due to the elections of far-left, usually Soros-backed district attorneys whose idea of “justice reform” is not to prosecute criminals. Voila! The crime rate immediately drops! All you have to do is legalize crime!
But before these DA’s started simply releasing violent rioters, a number of prominent sports and entertainment figures and liberal politicians were donating to and promoting a fund to bail them out so they could keep on rioting and looting (although not in THEIR neighborhoods, Heaven forbid!) One of them was Kamala Harris. Thirteen members of Biden’s campaign staff also contributed to the fund to bail out participants in the riots that they’re now trying to blame on Trump.
If he's elected, Joe Biden had better not be too quick to destroy the fossil fuel industry. He’s going to need at least a little oil to keep the revolving doors on the jails spinning freely.
IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT IS TRUE
It’s Funny Because It’s True: The Babylon Bee created a chart to help Americans tell which activities spread the coronavirus and which don’t. For instance, UNSAFE: Shopping at small businesses. SAFE: Looting small businesses.
FREE EXCERPT OF THE THREE Cs THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT: CHRISTIANITY, CAPITALISM, AND THE CONSTITUTION.
My new book with Steve Feazel, “The Three C’s That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism and the Constitution,” is available for order now at Amazon, and you can now read a free excerpt from it at the link.
I hope you’ll get the book, read it, and pass copies on to all of your friends and relatives who think they’re well-informed about history and current events because they watch Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert. You can explain to them that all those pages in the back with the little numbers on them are footnotes that list the original sources for historical facts. They’ve probably never seen anyone cite an actual historical fact before.
BEST IDEA OF THE WEEK
Remember that idiotic new book about how looting is good? (It’s redistributing wealth! It enables people to get things they need for free! And insurance companies pay for it, so it doesn’t cost anyone anything – except that many policies don’t cover looting, and those that do will have to raise everyone’s rates to cover what the looters stole.) The publisher expects readers to fork over nearly $26 for that drivel.
Well, Spectator columnist Cockburn is certain that neither the author nor the publisher would want to perpetuate the white supremacist concept of capitalism and intellectual property rights, so he’s written to the publishers to ask permission to post an illegal PDF scan of the book online for free download, as a form of “virtual looting.” He hasn’t heard back yet, but I’m sure there would be no objections. After all, how else would people be able to get the book other than stealing it?
I should warn you, though: even if you read it for free, you’ll still demand your wasted time back.
KENOSHA, KENOSHA, KENOSHA
Tuesday, despite Wisconsin’s Democratic Governor urging him to stay away so as not to interfere with the “healing,” President Trump visited riot-torn Kenosha. He stated the obvious truth that nobody’s supposed to say: ““Kenosha’s been ravaged by anti-police and anti-American riots. These are not acts of peaceful protest, but really domestic terror.”
Trump announced $1 million in federal funding to local law enforcement, $4 million to help small Kenosha businesses rebuild and $42 million to “support public safety” statewide. As for the “defund police” movement, Trump said there are some “bad apples” who should be taken care of through the system, but he wants “to increase police funding substantially.”
Click the link to see a photo that’s worth at least a thousand words. If I were going to write those words, they would describe how that rubble is not the aftermath of a “peaceful protest,” and how the people waiting to speak to Trump don’t look as if they think his presence is their community’s biggest problem.
WHO COULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING
Who could have seen this coming? Yet another Portland radical leftist rioter who was arrested then immediately turned loose has allegedly stabbed two people to death. The good news is that even in Portland, double murder will get you held without bail. And the good news for Joe Biden is that he’s one of the rioters who was simply let go by local Democrat “authorities” and not one of the rioters who was bailed out from the fund that Biden’s campaign staffers contributed to.
RUSSIAN CONTROL OVER JOE BIDEN'S MOUTH?!?
ABC News reports that US intelligence believes that Russian propagandists are trying to sow discord in American politics by casting doubt over Joe Biden’s mental fitness for office.
Wow, I knew that the Russians could do ANYTHING, even download all the emails from the DNC computer faster than any Internet connection can actually transfer data, but I didn’t know they also had control over both Joe Biden's mouth and my own ears. Well, I guess if they can force all those young leftist radicals to go out and burn down black neighborhoods while chanting “Black lives matter,” they really do have godlike powers.
POLITIFACT IS MORE POLITICAL THAN FACT
Once again, the left-leaning “fact-check” site Politifact has come to the rescue of a Democrat by claiming that his Republican opponent’s campaign ad that accurately described his lousy record was “mostly false.”
Politifact did this by using a now-familiar tactic of accepting the Democrat’s rationalization as if it were actual fact that disproved the premise, which it isn’t. It’s just an opinion. This is what happens when people who claim to be “fact-checkers” accept liberal opinions as “fact.”
OUR VERDICT: The first half of the name “PolitiFact” is “mostly true,” but the second half of their name is “Pants-On-Fire False.”
Just in case the Democrats still haven’t figured out what they’re dealing with, BLM made it crystal clear on a flyer for their upcoming rally in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Quote: “If it burns, it burns. This is war."
Well, I’m sure it will be a mostly peaceful war.
