"MODERATE" JOE BIDEN UPDATE #1

Thursday in Pennsylvania, Biden declared, “It’s way past time to put the end to the era of shareholder capitalism.” He said as President, he would replace it with a more inclusive economic system built on the power of labor unions and on “black, brown, and Native American” communities that had been left out of economic prosperity.

(Bonus: he also falsely claimed that President Trump told Americans to treat the coronavirus by drinking bleach.)

"MODERATE" JOE BIDEN UPDATE #2

Biden declared that if he’s elected President, he’ll reinstate the Obamacare mandate forcing religious groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor to have to pay for contraceptives and abortion drugs.

PREVIOUS "MODERATE" JOE BIDEN NEWS

Instapundit compiled a handy list of some of Biden’s previous “moderate” positions, including banning all use of plastics, instituting the Green New Deal, making AOC the head of his climate change task force, promising to throw thousands of coal miners out of work, and vowing to jail fossil fuel executives. I was going to say that he only looks moderate compared to the socialist tyrants running Venezuela, but at this point even they might be saying, “Whoa, Joe, reel it in!”

PELOSI DEMONSTRATES HOW UNSERIOUS SHE IS ABOUT THE LAW

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a perfect illustration of how much today’s Democrats believe in the rule of law. When asked about the destruction of statues of American historical figures such as Christopher Columbus, she replied, “I don’t care that much about statues.” When pressed by reporters on whether she at least drew a distinction between officials deciding whether to remove them and mobs tearing them down in the dead of night, she blithely replied, “People will do what they do.”

Her full comments are the link. But this is the part I hope you’ll remember when she and other top Democrats assure us that nobody on their side would take advantage of mail-in voting or other methods to commit vote fraud. We now know how seriously they view enforcing laws:

“Hey, people will do what they do!”

A DOSE OF STUPID

Despite being a debunked load of anti-American garbage, the New York Times’ “1619 Project” (which claims the entire basis of America isn’t freedom, human rights or democracy, but slavery) not only won a Pulitzer Prize, but now, Oprah Winfrey and Lionsgate Studios have picked up the film and TV rights, so that its poisonous ideas can infect young people in a variety of media.

The most succinct comment on this was the headline that the Instapundit blog put on it: “YOU get a dose of stupid! And YOU get a dose of stupid! And YOU get…”

Incidentally, I can't think of a better person to make the case that a black person just can't get ahead in America than Oprah.

CITIZENSHIP, AN "ARTIFICIAL DISTINCTION"

In response to President Trump’s proposed regulations to curb the number of foreign workers and illegal migrants that major companies hire instead of paying living wages to Americans, 25,000 leftist university academics signed a letter arguing that US citizenship is an “artificial distinction between foreign and domestic students, which undermines the pursuit of both knowledge and justice.” Not mentioned in the letter is the flow of money from foreign students to colleges that Trump’s new rules would undermine, or the jobs and paychecks to Americans that the current policies undermine.

On the plus side, if US citizenship is meaningless, then there’s nothing stopping us from deporting all these academics to Venezuela, is there? Oh wait: they’re probably so far left that even the socialists in Venezuela wouldn’t take them.

    "I can't think of a better person to make the case that a black person just can't get ahead in America than Oprah."

    Sure ya can, Huck: Think Colin Kaepernick. Think many hundreds of football and basketball players in NFL and NBA.

    The Dems have NO honest chance to win -- that's why the fake polls fake news and attempted voter fraud. Get real.

    What's with these leftist ninnies and their group letters? They can't express themselves individually anymore?

    Let's do everything in our power to awake all Christian's, Catholics, etc. of what is ahead for them..what is ahead for us... if Biden is elected POTUS in November. While Hitler's ire was against Jews. I am sure he is, nonetheless, smiling in his grave. (Ironic, when you consider the left's frequent scare tactic of comparing Trump to Hitler!)

    End or Eliminate "shareholder capitalism" ..............is pure ignorance .......GOVT pension plans - Union Pension plans - corporate Retirement plans - individual retirement plans like IRA Roth and .....................all are "shareholders" ..............Hunter Biden is shareholder of a Chinese corporation that just removed Hunter from the board of directors ................and I am sure Biden's many relatives that have "hauled in millions" off of him ..........are all "shareholders"

    Oprah, has gotten too big for her britches. Another phony. I have no objection to her aggressiveness, but there is a limit. She's just one of many liberals who feel that all reaching now being done is the correct one. They are too afraid to present both sides of the story and allowing students to make their own minds up. Big problem needs to be addressed. Something like Hillsdale College comes to mind.

    A DOSE OF STUPID: Did they get the Pulitzer for fiction or is this another attack on factual history to substantiate a questionable fabricated heritage. Blacks have a lot to be proud of in this country and shouldn't need go along with any effort to get a leg up by tearing down others.

    CITIZENSHIP, AN "ARTIFICIAL DISTINCTION"--Academia's role in the current Anti American riots needs to be investigated and, if substantiated as a contributor, tax payer support for those organizations should be withdrawn. Why should patriotic Americans be forced to fund any organization that is working to destroy their country? As a side, it will be interesting to watch to see what will happen to the demonstrations when the liberal arts colleges reopen.

    Nancy Pelosi's comments sound like Marie Anntoinette: "Let them eat cake!"

    I keep hearing you talking negative about the DEMS and I totally agree. But out in our area I heard a female postal worker talking to a person in our community saying all sorts of bad things about Trump, not the republican party. Plus there are all kinds of DEM advertisements saying all kinds of misleading statements. I am getting very scared that the DEMS have a real shot at winning everything come November because of their half truths and out-n-out lies. How does one battle the devil and his people?
