1. DAILY BIBLE VERSE
And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
2 Chronicles 20:15 NKJV
2. Referencing George Wallace:
One more comment on the outrageous carpetbag of lies that President Biden unpacked in Georgia: Who thought it was a good idea to use that reference to George Wallace? That may be the one thing in the speech that was actually written by Joe Biden. I like making arcane references because I figure my target audience is older people with lots of knowledge and experience and curious younger people who’ll Google something they don’t know to learn about it. That’s definitely not the crowd the Dems are targeting with this drivel.
Trying to convince young voters to be scared of Republicans by invoking the name of George Wallace is a Grandpa Simpson-like idea that could only sound good to a 79-year-old man who remembers 1968 better than he remembers what he had for breakfast. Here are three things wrong with that reference:
1. He’s talking to young Americans who learned “history” in liberal-run schools, about something that happened nearly six decades ago, involving a politician who died two years before the turn of the century. How many of them turned to one another and said, “George Wallace? Is he that black stand-up comic my parents like?”
To use my own reference that young people won't get, on his first album, Steve Martin told a Nixon joke then admitted it felt like telling “Ike” jokes. At that time, it had been only three years since Nixon resigned and the reference already seemed dated. At least Biden didn’t attack Ike. I like Ike.
2. George Wallace was a Democrat. In fact, he was a Democrat who wanted “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,” just like so many current “progressive” Democrats do. (FYI, Biden also made scary references to such other historic figures as Jefferson Davis and Bull Connor, who were both – you guessed it – Democrat segregationists.)
3. Maybe Joe’s understandably forgotten, but when he was in the Senate, he was quite chummy with segregationist Southern Democrats. When campaigning in the South, he liked to tell voters that he was called one of the outstanding young politicians of America by none other than Alabama Gov. George Wallace.
While I can understand why people would be frightened of Republicans if they thought they were anything like segregationist Democrats, it’s simply not true. Those are yours, Joe. Our Party was formed for the specific purpose of making your Party give up their slaves. So knock it off.
3. Ray Epps:
In denying that Ray Epps was an FBI plant or informant in the January 6th Capitol riots, Rep. Adam Kinzinger inadvertently blew up much of the 1/6 Committee’s case, in effect arguing that the only person who’s actually on video urging people to break into the Capitol didn’t do anything illegal.
I guess if he’d just urged the crowd to protest “peacefully and patriotically,” then they could accuse him of insurrection.
4. Up in arms in North Carolina:
North Carolina parents are rightly up in arms after learning that the state school board approved using a $7 million federal Preschool Handicapped Grant to push Critical Race Theory racial divisiveness onto disabled three-year-olds.
For details on why such a red state is plagued with the CRT curse, read the linked article. And take it as a cautionary tale for parents that just because you elect Republicans to office, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to keep a close eye on education bureaucrats who feel that they have a right to impose their political agendas on your kids, whether you like it or not.
5. Top News: LYIN' BIDEN: a monstrous "voting rights" speech in Georgia:
All right. That is just it. President Biden lied so much during his “voting rights” speech in Georgia Tuesday that the gloves have to come off. On my radio show, my slogan was, “I’m conservative...but I’m not mad at anybody about it.” Well, circumstances have changed since I did that show, and today, there’s plenty to be mad about.
“I ask every elected official in America,” Biden said from the podium, “how do you want to be remembered? ...Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King, or George Wallace?”
That remark is so offensive, it’s hard to accept that this seems to be the level of discourse today for political speech --- at least the uncensored speech that comes from the left.
First of all, virtually all conservatives agree with the philosophy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Do you know who’s NOT on the side of Dr. King? Any adherent of Critical Race Theory, which teaches that we must look first at the color of someone’s skin, not the content of his or her character. CRT stands for the opposite of what Dr. King stood for. So Biden is lying in his implication about Republicans. He offends me deeply with that, lie, not that he cares.
Here’s the full video of both Vice President Harris and President Biden:
Harris says, “I have heard your outrage, about the ‘anti-voter law’ here, and how many voters will likely be kept from voting. And Georgia is not alone. Across our nation, anti-voter laws could make it more difficult for as many as 55 million Americans to vote.” (NOTE: Did you know that Biden’s home state of Delaware has more stringent election laws than Georgia does?)
Tell me, Kamala, where does that number, 55 million, come from? Are there 55 million qualified voters in America who don’t have or can’t get an ID? Who can’t scrawl a signature that can be verified? Who can’t apply for an absentee ballot, rather than just having an unsolicited ballot arrive in the mail for anyone to fill out? The only safeguards we want for the voting process are those minimal ones that help keep it honest. And those are the very provisions you want to do away with. That tells us something very important about you. In more confrontational words, we’re on to you.
Harris accuses the GOP of interfering with elections to get the outcomes they want. Really? This is something I would think the Democrats know exactly how to do. It’s what Marc Elias spent the entire year of 2020 on, getting election laws changed, and what he’s doing now in anticipation of the election this year. The stated mission of The Elias Firm is TO GET MORE DEMOCRATS ELECTED TO OFFICE.
The “assault on voting rights” Harris accused Republicans of is as vapid and made-up as the “Russia Russia Russia!!” hoax. Repeat: there is no assault by Republicans on the freedom to vote. It is MADE UP. It is FAKE NEWS. Democrats’ frantic “voting rights” campaign is based on nothing.
I won’t spend more time on Kamala’s speech, because few Americans take her seriously, anyway. Let’s go to what President Biden had to say, even though most don’t take him seriously, either. Watch the whole thing if you can stomach it --- you’ll see Biden, early on, refer to the VP as “President Harris” --- or else read our list of his most offensive remarks, below, with our notes...
(Biden referring to the Jan. 6 “insurrection”) “...when a dagger was literally held at the throat of American democracy.” (NOTE: aside from this being a gross exaggeration, when will the left figure out what “literally” means?)
“…But then, the violent mob of January 6, 2021, empowered and encouraged by a defeated former President, sought to win through violence what he had lost at the ballot box.” (NOTE: That is a LIE. As you know, President Trump offered Speaker Pelosi up to 20,000 National Guard troops to keep the peace that day. She turned his offer down.)
“...for...the first time, to stop the peaceful transfer of power.” (NOTE: That is a LIE. Trump and his supporters wished only for a peaceful pause to examine some huge irregularities in the result before certifying the vote.)
“...We’re here today, to stand against the forces in America that value power over principle, forces that attempted a coup, a coup against the legally expressed will of the American people by sowing doubt, [unintelligible] charges of fraud, and seeking to steal the 2020 election.” (NOTE: That this was a coup is another LIE. And we all had doubt, after what we saw with our own eyes the night of November 3.)
“They want chaos to reign.” (NOTE: He must be talking about HIS party, which thrives on chaos.)
“The battle for the soul of America is not over. We must stand strong and stand together to make sure January 6 marks not the end of democracy but the beginning of a renaissance of our democracy.” (NOTE: Is he out of his mind?)
(After talking about the denial of voting rights to blacks and women) “...And now, the defeated former President and his supporters use the Big Lie about the 2020 election to fuel torment [?] and anti-voting laws [NOTE: we think he misread the teleprompter here], new laws designed to suppress your vote, to subvert our elections.” (NOTE: That is LIE. The votes likely being suppressed are the ones being canceled out by fraud made possible by Marc Elias’s “reforms.”)
“To them [Republicans], too many people voting in a democracy is a problem.” (NOTE: another LIE. We just want them qualified. And preferably alive.)
It just goes on. Biden points out that Trump himself voted by mail in the White House. Good grief --- does he think Trump got an unsolicited ballot in the mail, or that it wouldn’t be possible to verify his signature?
Dropboxes are, Biden says, “safe, convenient, and you get more people to vote.” Sure, but they have to be supervised, with a chain of custody. Is that so hard? And you don’t get them funded by Mark Zuckerberg.
Then Biden again refers to election safeguards as “Jim Crow 2.0.” “It’s no longer about who gets to vote,” he says, “it’s about making it harder to vote. It’s about who gets to count the vote, and whether your vote counts at all." (NOTE: who COUNTS the vote?? I would say that was definitely the problem in 2020.)
“The goal of the former President and his allies is to disenfranchise anyone who votes against them,” Biden lies.
Well, you know how fond I am of saying, “We watch the news, so you don’t have to,” but, honestly, we just can’t subject ourselves to any more of this –- not without donning hazmat suits. It’s so toxic, it makes long covid look like the sniffles.
I assume Kurt Schlichter forced himself to watch this pack of lies, because it made him even punchier than usual when he wrote his commentary. He’s figured it out, too: Dems are doing this because they want to cheat.
6. The “New” Taliban, Same as the “Old” Taliban:
Sure, the “new” Taliban is more moderate and reasonable; they’re a Taliban we can work with, and even send them a huge pile of American money as humanitarian aid, which I’m sure will get to the people who really need it, right? What could possibly go wrong? Aside from the fact that they just threatened to send 2,000 suicide bombers to Washington, DC.
