MY NEW PODCAST LAUNCHES
I've been wanting to do a podcast for a while now, so I'm proud to announce The People's Podcast! It's a show about Politics, News, and everything else happening in the world around us. You can find it exclusively on Quake Media, so please subscribe today and I'm excited for you to join me!
ACTUAL FACT-CHECK OF JOE BIDEN
In last week’s ABC Townhall, Joe Biden said, “The Boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, OK? So the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do, number one.”
Ruling: Pants on fire, Pinocchio-nose FALSE!
The International Boilermakers Union has not endorsed any candidate in the 2020 race, although Local 154 in Pittsburgh has “overwhelmingly” endorsed President Trump. They called him a “true friend to the Boilermakers” and said it’s “imperative that we continue to battle over-regulations in the fossil fuel industries and fight for American energy production.”
The good news is that Joe finally came up with a creative new lie. I’m getting tired of hearing him repeat the same old discredited lies, like the “very fine people” garbage or the “coronavirus is a hoax” hoax. I was beginning to fear that advancing age had robbed him of his famous ability to spin out one outrageous whopper after another into entire paragraphs of jaw-dropping plagiarisms and falsehoods. For a moment there, it was almost like the young Joe Biden was back.
Don’t believe me? Here’s just one example from an article by Derek Hunter at Townhall.com that obliterates the argument that we need to elect Biden because he’s a nice, affable, regular guy who will restore honor, integrity, and honesty.
During Biden’s first Presidential run waaaay back in 1987, a voter asked about his academic record. Biden angrily snapped back, "I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship. In the first year in law school, I decided I didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds in my class. Then, I decided I wanted to stay, went back to law school, and, in fact, ended up in the top half of my class. I won the International Moot Court Competition. I was the ‘Outstanding Student’ in the Political Science department at the end of my year. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits, only needed 123 credits, and I’d be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours, if you’d like, frankly."
As Hunter notes, not one of those statements is true. His scholarship was based on need, not academics; he won no awards; he didn’t earn multiple degrees, and he graduated 76th out of 85 students.
Those looking for evidence of any mental decline on Joe’s part should stop analyzing his debate performances and consider instead the sad erosion of his ability to spin fresh, new lies with every breath he exhales.
A NEW COMMISSION
Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich thinks we need a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to “erase Trump’s lies” and expose those who “enabled” them.
He’s a little behind the times: we already have a “1984”-style “Ministry of Truth.” It goes by the names of “Twitter” and “Facebook.” But true to its Orwellian heritage, it’s now claiming to protect us from “lies” by banning us from sharing actual news that reflects badly on its chosen leader.
THIS IS ONE IDEA...
New Yorkers who lost their elderly loved ones in nursing homes to COVID-19 by the thousands found a novel way to express their anger at Gov. Andrew Cuomo for writing a self-aggrandizing book about how brilliantly he handled the crisis. I use the word “novel” because this book is definitely more fiction than non-fiction.
TODAY'S MUST READ
Today’s Must-Read article is from the New Neo blog, where the anonymous female blogger (a former Democrat-turned-conservative surrounded by liberals in NYC) examines how liberals have become so blinded by groundless Trump hatred that they can no longer see dangerous realities, such as the rising anti-Semitism in their own party.
In particular, she cites a column in the Jewish magazine Tablet by Bari Weiss, whom you’d think might understand where the real danger is, since she was driven out of the New York Times for daring to express non-leftist groupthink-approved thoughts. She recognizes the dangers of the fascistic, anti-Semitic radical left, and that Biden will allow it to gain more power, but she can’t even bring herself to consider the possibility of doing the only thing to stop it: voting for Trump. She describes him in purple prose as an “obscenity” who has “normalized bigotry and cruelty in ways that have crippled American society.” As the blogger notes, she offers no specifics as to how he’s allegedly done that.
She then quotes Weiss describing the attributes of the classic liberal that she fears are being lost in the Democratic Party: “…the belief that everyone is equal because everyone is created in the image of God. The belief in the sacredness of the individual over the group or the tribe. The belief that the rule of law—and equality under that law—is the foundation of a free society. The belief that due process and the presumption of innocence are good and that mob violence is bad. The belief that pluralism is a source of our strength; that tolerance is a reason for pride; and that liberty of thought, faith, and speech are the bedrocks of democracy…”
As the blogger points out, those things aren’t under assault in the Democratic Party; they’ve been dead there for years. What Weiss is describing is a conservative Trump voter, but her visceral hatred for “Orange Man Bad” has blinded her to seeing it.
It’s well worth reading and sharing the whole piece. But if your Trump-hating relatives refuse to read it, you can get the basic idea across by coming to dinner in one of those T-shirts that has Trump’s picture on it with the caption, “In reality, they’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way.”
Here’s a welcome reminder that not all Californians are crazy people who keep reelecting politicians who shut down their businesses; welcome criminals and illegal immigrants; tax workers to death; do nothing about homelessness, drugs and filth; and can’t put out wildfires or even keep the lights on. It’s just that the ones who aren’t crazy are outnumbered by the ones who are.
NEW YORK TIMES CORRECTION PAGE
Say, remember that woman we claimed made a 911 call to falsely accuse a black man of assaulting her? The story that went viral and got repeated by liberal reporters all over social media? Well, uh, sorry, turns it wasn’t true. Don’t worry, though: Twitter hasn’t banned any of the liberal reporters who disseminated the Times’ slanderous fake news. Only the New York Post is banned for actual reporting on Hunter Biden.
Meet the unbiased moderator of this Thursday’s final Presidential debate.
She’s an NBC reporter with long ties to the Democratic Party, who once asked President Trump if he had ever worked for Russia, who quickly deleted her Twitter tweets after being chosen, and who is known for being caught on camera tipping off Hillary Clinton’s spokeswoman about a question she was going to ask. The New York Post quoted a senior White House official as saying that they consider her an activist, not a reporter, and that the press corps views her the same way they would if Nancy Pelosi or AOC walked into the room.
So, pretty much your stand Presidential Debate Commission choice for moderator. The Wall Street Journal has a good diagnosis of what went wrong with the Commission: like so many things, it started out with good intentions, then became a “creature of Washington’s political class,” and now, it’s hopelessly partisan. Their suggestion:
“This year should be its last as the arbiter of debates. If it won’t go away on its own, the next GOP nominee should refuse to cooperate and negotiate the rules and timing of the debates in 2024 with the Democratic nominee.”
I second that. To let them continue picking the moderators would be like a football team letting all the referees for the big game be chosen from the other team’s cheerleading squad.
