Remember how President Trump took so much heat for saying that if you remove all the Confederate monuments, the “protesters” would just move on to demanding that monuments to Washington, Jefferson and other Founders be torn down? That crazy bad orange man! Well, he was right, of course, and he might not even have realized how right he was.

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser appointed a committee to look into “problematic” monuments in DC, and that confederacy of dunces has issued its report. Surprise! They recommend removing, relocating or “contextualizing” the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, statues of Ben Franklin, Andrew Jackson and other figures, and more.

These are the same people who went ballistic at Melania Trump for disrespecting American history by allegedly removing a couple of cherry trees from the Rose Garden that were never there to begin with. But they want to tear down the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial because Washington should “only honor those individuals who exemplified those values such as equity, opportunity and diversity that DC residents hold dear.” Yep, none of those DC residents got anything from the people who won the American Revolution and wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Remember this the next time Democrats argue that DC should be made a state and granted two Senators. The place seems incapable even of electing a mayor who isn’t a complete embarrassment.

Biden Gets On The Trump Train

September 3, 2020

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.

Democrat Intentions

September 3, 2020

OUT IN THE OPEN NOW

It was awfully sporting of a Democratic data and analytics firm to tell us in advance how the Democrats plan to steal the Presidential election.

According to them, Trump may “appear” to have won on Election night, even by a landslide. But that will just be a “red mirage,” because so many Democrats will vote by mail that days later, the race will shift to Biden.

That’s the innocent-sounding version. Those of a more suspicious nature might read it as “We’ll find out on Election night how many bogus mail-in ballots we’ll need to manufacture to overcome Trump’s lead. Then if anyone questions those ballots, we’ll accuse the Republicans of trying to ‘suppress the minority vote” and send our BLM/Antifa shock troops out to burn down cities unless Trump concedes and hands over the White House.”

Again, if you think this can’t happen, I’ll refer to you this article that just appeared in the New York Post, in which a Dem operative described how easy it is to steal elections and how he’s been rigging them in the New Jersey area for years.

I hope the RNC is making plans to fight this, since it’s been reported that the Democrats have already lined up at least 600 lawyers to challenge the vote. This could be an open war, so our side had better be prepared.

Of course, the best way to insure this doesn’t happen is to vote in massive numbers, far beyond the potential “margin of fraud.” Go vote in person (not by mail-in ballots that can be intercepted) and take everyone who would vote GOP with you.

I must be getting old: I remember when people won elections by espousing policies that the majority of people agreed with. I even recall when one Democratic Presidential candidate called it appalling and un-American to refuse to accept the results of a Presidential election – before she went on to spend the next four years refusing to accept the results of the Presidential election.

DEMOCRATS ARE FOMENTING VIOLENCE WITH THEIR RHETORIC

According to Joe Biden, or whoever is putting words on his prompter these days, President Trump is to blame for fomenting all the violence in cities that have been run 100% by Democrats since Joe Biden was in knee pants. This statement isn’t so much a political argument as it is an IQ test. After all, as this column reminds us, the Democrats completely ignored all the riots (sorry: “peaceful protests”) throughout their convention. If they really believed Trump was responsible for them, wouldn’t they have hammered him for that every night? They certainly blamed him for everything else, from the Chinese virus to the heartbreak of psoriasis.

So just to remind us who has really been “resisting” the peaceful transfer of power since 2016, here’s a compilation video of top leftwing politicians and media figures urging political violence and civil unrest in the streets. (Warning: contains disturbing violent imagery that even CNN would have a hard time describing as “mostly peaceful.)

And just to hammer home what’s actually happening and who’s behind it, here’s Sen. Rand Paul making it crystal clear.

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.
