"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.
