BIDEN GETS ON THE TRUMP TRAIN
I was on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show last night, talking about how, at his advanced age, Joe Biden has only now realized that protesting and rioting are not the same thing. And no, people weren’t looting the Louis Vuitton store because they needed a loaf of bread. You can see the video here.
The question put before us on the show was, “Is Joe Biden plagiarizing the Trump campaign?” Well, you go with your strengths, and plagiarism was always Joe’s chief strength. After months of making excuses for rioters and looters, and hosting an entire convention where they weren’t even mentioned, suddenly, the Democrats noticed the polls were cratering (Don Lemon let the cat out of the bag: they didn’t care at all about the victims of the riots; it only became a serious problem when it started hurting their election chances.) And suddenly, Joe Biden denounced the violence, just as Trump has been doing all along because it was obviously the right thing to do.
But this is hardly the first or only example of Biden following Trump (since the Democrats have jettisoned the “Me, Too” movement, maybe this will give “me, too” a new meaning.) Biden’s entire plan for dealing with COVID-19 is mostly a lot of stuff that Trump’s already done, back when it was timely enough to actually help. Biden wasn’t going to campaign until after Labor Day until Trump mocked him for hiding (“Ten days is an eternity in Trumpville!”), and suddenly, Joe comes out and makes a speech. Biden wasn’t going to go to Kenosha, but Trump went, and now Biden is going.
It’s an interesting new definition of “leadership”: doing whatever Trump does first.
Biden will be in Kenosha today, but I think that may prove to be a strategic blunder. We all saw the photos of Trump talking to devastated business owners in the rubble of their former businesses. How is it going to look for Joe to stand in the same setting and try to ooze “empathy” when everyone knows he and his Party have spent the past weeks standing by, letting it happen and denying it even existed? If I were one of those business owners, I would definitely ask him why he employs 13 campaign staffers who donated to a fund to bail out the people who burned down and looted my business.
TRUMP SAYS FIRE CUOMO
I honestly don’t know what to make of this story, other than it shows that CNN’s Chris Cuomo understands the concept of being falsely accused of sexual misconduct, even if he never apples the benefit of the doubt to other people. And it shows that President Trump is still the master of trolling, as I’m sure he’s relishing the chance to turn the “hidden microphone capturing a private conservation” gotcha back on Cuomo.

Some BLM/Antifa vandals spray-painted obscene anti-Trump and anti-police graffiti on the wall outside Graceland, over tributes to Elvis that fans have written there for years.
BUY NOW: THE THREE Cs THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT: CHRISTIANITY, CAPITALISM, AND THE CONSTITUTION.
Forces on the Left seeks to fundamentally change our nation by disregarding the principles upon which it was founded. Members of the media and liberal politicians seek to damage our economic, political, and educational systems for their gain. The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution: Huckabee exposes the Left's plan to undermine the Christian values on which the nation was built
- reveals how attacks on Christianity are part of the political agenda of Liberals
- provides a clear understanding of capitalism and how free markets benefit all people
- reveals how Liberals undermine capitalism with their socialistic policies
- shows how the Constitution’s purpose to restrain government and protect individual liberty
- unmask the efforts of the liberal Left to subvert the power and relevance of the Constitution
- exposes the current corruption in government and culture
- which undermines the principles on which the nation was founded
America faces a war of values that will determine its future and likely decide if it will continue as a great nation on the world stage. Mike Huckabee and Steve Feazel sounds a needed alarm to Christians and conservatives to answer the call to action and push back against the forces that desire to move America from its heritage and founding principles. It is time for God's people to take an active role in the political arena, not with violence, but with votes and voices that proclaim and defend the values that made our nation the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known.
MSM SILENT ON BIDEN FAMILY CONNECTIONS TO CONTROVERSIAL CHINESE COMPANY
The Washington Examiner reports that the son of one of our major Presidential candidates owns 10% of a Shanghai equity company that is part owner of a Chinese facial recognition software company that’s been sanctioned by the Commerce Department for being “implicated in human rights violations and abuses in the implementation of China’s campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, and high-technology surveillance against Uighurs, Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups.”
But it’s not one of the Trump sons, it’s Hunter Biden, so don’t expect to hear this on the news or anything.
Great piece by the Bookworm Room blog on all the existing trends that have been greatly speeded up by the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus.
Some are very negative (people who might have lived much longer but died because of the virus.) Some are bad for certain people, like blue city mayors who love milking businesses for tax money (the accelerated exodus to telecommuting), but positive for others.
And some are purely positive, such as the disease exposing incompetent, leftist-indoctrinating schools and overpriced colleges, which is accelerating the push for school choice, home schooling and online learning. And the fact that without crowds of happy, “diverse” convention goers to cut to as props, viewers of the Democratic Convention got to see the Party for what it really is: a group of old, sour-faced white men who don’t much like America or Americans.
If you listen to the media (bad idea), you might think that the only issues you should consider when voting this year are a virus that’s already running its course, violence in the streets by some leftist clowns that could be stopped in an hour if the idiots in charge of blue cities and states would just do it, and of course, racism, racism, racism.
At the link, Dan Calabrese lists a few real issues that will affect your life and America’s future far more than all this ginned-up election year drama, and that nobody is talking about.
STATE DEPARTMENT OUTPOST IN UKRAINE HAD "ENEMIES LIST"
One reason why the upcoming election is so critically important is that Trump is still the only one who has both the will and the power to drain the swamp. And new evidence shows that the swamp, particularly the vestiges of Hillary Clinton’s State Department, is deeper and more fetid than we knew. Here’s John Solomon’s latest report.
Do you remember that cast of characters from the State Department –-- specifically, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev –- who came in to testify during those laughable fake impeachment hearings last winter, based on a falsified “whistleblower” complaint about Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine? Remember Fiona Hill, Marie Yovanovich and that group? If so, then you won’t be surprised at all to hear from Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton that newly-uncovered documents show that embassy officials set up what appears to have been an “enemies list” to help illegally monitor and report on the social media postings of President Trump’s family, his lawyer, and journalists perceived as Trump-friendly.
"The State Department hid these smoking-gun documents for months,” Fitton said.
Thanks again to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from Judicial Watch, we know that Solomon himself was one of the ones targeted; along with Fitton; Donald Trump, Jr.; the President’s personal attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani; FOX News personalities Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Sara Carter, Dan Bongino and Lou Dobbs; One America News personality Jack Posobiec; radio host and former Trump White House adviser Sebastian Gorka; and more for a total of 13 Americans.
We learn from the documents that they were using search terms to find out specifically what was being written about Ambassador Yovanovich, George Soros (!!!), and Joe Biden and Burisma Holdings, the corrupt Ukrainian gas company that had put Biden’s son Hunter on its board and paid him handsomely for doing nothing but allowing the use of his name “Biden” on corporate documents.
Here’s a sample communication from former deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, this one sent on March 27, 2019: “Key thing is to get up to ramming speed from the get-go.” His enthusiastic discussion of the social media monitoring effort seems to have been prompted by John Solomon’s early stories about the embassy’s activities concerning Biden and Ukrainian prosecutors. (This was back when Solomon was reporting for THE HILL; he’d also been on FOX News with these stories. We commented on many such reports at the time.)
Some of the names are still redacted. It would be nice to know who wrote this to Yovanovich, as it seems pretty sneaky: “...I just wanted you to be aware as we are really trying to help them and recognize how hard everyone is working in this especially trying time. The good news is our social media team back here is now helping to provide them with the reports they want when Kyiv is asleep/offline –- through existing PD tools –- so this should greatly help.”
Help WHOM? Who is "them"? The Bidens? And what “existing PD tools” are they using, apparently surreptitiously?
On May 15, 2019, another name in the conversation was redacted, a Digital Media associate for EUR/PD Keniya-Trusant Group apparently offering legal advice, letting them know they had run afoul of the Privacy Act of 1974: “Going to chime in here,” REDACTED said. “So regarding the influencers [Hannity, etc], there are some legal implications of making a list of Facebook influencers or Twitter influencers since they are technically private citizens (even though they’re publicly on the internet) and we cannot compile them into a list and monitor what they are saying using a third-party application without their knowledge. To see what they’re saying, you unfortunately need to use the old school way and manually go to their feeds and view that way. Cumbersome but it’s in compliance with the Privacy Act of 1974.”
I can hear them whining now (no need to “monitor” them): Ah, so our targets are TECHNICALLY private citizens. What an inconvenience –- who knew? Gosh, it’s SO much less cumbersome for us to monitor what they’re saying when we can put them on a list and search for key words. That way, we can be sure and see every word they say about George Soros.
Solomon has talked with some officials who have seen the unredacted memos, and they say some of the redactions offer “additional analysis of the legal issues surrounding the monitoring that occurred.”
I’ll bet they do. One official told Solomon that “Congress may be entitled to see more about the nature of the concerns than was publicly released.” Not to worry about that, of course, as long as Congress is controlled by Democrats, who will bury all of it. That’s one reason why it’s so important for Republicans to gain control of the House again.
Communications employees knew good and well that they weren’t supposed to do things like this. They wouldn’t need some outside legal adviser to tell them about the Privacy Act of 1974. But this is just one of the ways the anti-Trump swamp dwellers were getting their jollies at the State Department outpost in Ukraine in 2019.
If you have some time to go through the 300 pages of still-partially redacted communications, here is the pdf. If anything, it’ll tell you these swamp rats at the State Department had WAY too much time on their hands and that the last thing they cared about was anybody’s rights, particularly if their "enemies" were sympathetic to President Trump. Trump needs four more years to do the serious swamp-draining you know he intends to do, at the State Department and elsewhere.
