NYT fact checked Biden’s economic record claims and found his statements FALSE

Poor old NYT. It decided to fact check Joe Biden’s claim that he handed Trump a roaring economy. It came back “false”.

The economy was not ‘booming’ in the final year of Biden’s time as vice president…and Trump did not ’cause’ the pandemic recession. The economy was healthy in 2016, but growth had dipped below 2%…”

That didn’t stop liberal readers melting down. Here is a list of ones without profanity:

THIS is what you focus on?”

“Collaborators,”

“Delete this.”

Cancelling my subscription tomorrow,”

“I’m done with you. This is ridiculous. Ludicrous. Shameful.”

Isn’t it ironic that a paper that hates Trump gets censured by its customers for telling the truth. Maybe that is why the paper distorts reality so often. It is catering to its audience.

Orange man not paying his greens?

The New York Times has run a hit piece on Trump’s tax records. The paper noted,

The New York Times has obtained tax-return data extending over more than two decades for Mr. Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization, including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for 2018 or 2019. This article offers an overview of The Times’s findings; additional articles will be published in the coming weeks.

Drip feeding news is a good strategy as it takes heat off Biden’s basement dwelling and the civil unrest which has been literally been burning the Democrats due to their lack of condemnation. The media circus will run with it non stop.

Although the Amy Coney Barrett Senate SCOTUS confirmation hearings will no doubt be another farcical character assassination which will blow up in the Democrats’ faces.

For the record, if Trump ‘evaded‘ taxes, we would have no issue whatsoever with any punishment that fit the crime. However, ‘avoidance‘ is what any sane rational individual/corporation does, as Kerry Packer reminded us in 1991.

While no surprise, media outlets have blindly forwarded the ‘tax bombshell,’ without seeming to question the validity or reliability of the tax sources which the NYT is basing the claims. Then again why would they? Orange man bad. Destroy at all costs. Worry about facts later.

Are these anonymous and undisclosed sources similar to those which accused him of calling slain soldiers, “suckers” and “losers“?

The NYT wrote,

In response to a letter summarizing The Times’s findings, Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate” and requested the documents on which they were based. After The Times declined to provide the records, in order to protect its sources, Mr. Garten took direct issue only with the amount of taxes Mr. Trump had paid.”

His taxes could well have been leaked by NY State attorneys investigating him. That in and of itself is a criminal offence.

For the NYT, if Trump loses office thanks to this hit job, it will matter not if the details were fabricated because the incoming government would view it as the ends justifying the means.

Almost three years ago, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow hailed she had Trump’s 2005 tax return which showed he paid $38m tax on $150m income.

Fast forward to November 3rd, 2020.

Are voters going to be more concerned with how much tax he has or hasn’t paid or whether he is going to be more able to get the economy back on track as the record pre-COVID showed quite clearly as evidenced by the most recent SOTU? Jobs and economic prosperity matter. Period.

Ultimately voters still elected a man who was on tape bragging about grabbing female genitalia. With that in mind, is avoiding taxes more of an election issue than crotch cupping?

We are 40 days away. Paying only $750 in income tax is optically terrible. No question. Although he isn’t drawing a salary.

Given the allegations, the services of this tax accountant seem rather skillful. If he has merely taken advantage of the tax laws, that is about as American as it gets.

Let’s wait until we see more of these claims. Perhaps Trump releases some of his TC returns to put the media’s lies on display.

More lefty lunacy over SCOTUS nominee

These people have absolutely no shame.

Democrats target new SCOTUS nominee’s adopted kids

When Democrats can’t pin a sexual harassment charge on a conservative SCOTUS nominee as they did with Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh, just make awful accusations that the upcoming nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, illegitimately adopted two Haitian kids.

That’s what former staffer and Democrat activist Dana Houle decided to do. This brave keyboard warrior tweeted (and deleted) the disgraceful smear in the picture above.

Never mind that in the 2017 in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Barrett said of one of those adopted kids, “Vivian is our miracle.” She was so ill when they adopted her at 14 months of age that doctors doubted she would ever walk or speak. “Today Vivian is a track star, and I assure you she has no trouble talking.”

Maybe Houle was inspired by the Newsweek article that sought to disparage her religious beliefs. The magazine ended up retracting its baseless attack.

Don’t these lunatics realize they are actually helping the monster they created to do another four years?

As we continue to say, the Democrats are making the best possible argument as to exactly why they are far from a credible alternative.

Leave the kids out of it.

Victory Loves Preparation

Victory loves preparation.

Has it occurred to these activists masquerading as journalists that WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is always thoroughly prepared?

To be honest, they make her job so simple. She knows that the left leaning media will ignore any successes of the administration and just focus on their chronic Trump Derangement Syndrome.

This video borders on masochism. One by one she wrecks the lot of them. If only they’d focus on seeking balance. The latest game is completing their edited quotes and turning them back on the clickbait brigade.

It is almost worth re-electing Trump just to watch this blood sport. Reality TV couldn’t invent this clown show.

An amazing synopsis:

A friend shared this and if I knew the original writer, I would absolutely give them credit. Warning- it’s long, but pretty darn accurate. Thanks Jon Jon.

We could not have said this any better:

“If you can’t stand Trump, and cannot possibly fathom why anyone would ever vote for him, let me fill you in.

It’s not that we love Donald Trump so much. It’s that we can’t stand YOU!

And we will do whatever it takes — even if that means electing a rude, obnoxious, unpredictable, narcissist (your words not ours) to the office of President of the United States — because the thing we find more dangerous to this nation than Donald Trump is YOU.

How is that possible you might ask? Well, you have done everything in your power to destroy our country. From tearing down the police, to tearing down our history, to tearing down our borders.

From systematically destroying our schools and brainwashing our kids into believing socialism is the answer to anything (despite being an unmitigated failure everywhere), while demonizing religion and faith, and glorifying abortion, violence, and thug culture.

From calling us racists every time we expect everyone of any skin color to follow our laws equally to gaslighting us about 52 genders, polyamory, grown men in dresses sharing public locker rooms with little girls, and normalize the sexualization of young children, you simultaneously ridicule us for having the audacity to wish someone a “Merry Christmas” or hang a flag on the 4th of July, stand for the national anthem, or (horror of horrors) don a MAGA hat in public.

So much for your “tolerance.” Do you see why we think you are hypocrites?

We’re also not interested in the fact that you think you can unilaterally decide that 250 years of the right-to-bear-arms against a tyrannical or ineffective government should be abolished because you can’t get the violence in the cities you manage under control. That free-speech should be tossed out the window, and that those who disagree with your opinions are fair game for public harassment or doxing. That spoiled children with nose-rings and tats who still live off their parent’s dime should be allowed to destroy cities and peoples’ livelihoods without repercussions.

That chaos, and lawlessness, and disrespect for authority should be the norm. This is your agenda. And you wonder why we find you more dangerous than Donald Trump?

Your narrative is a constant drone of oppressor/oppressed race-baiting intended to divide the country in as many ways as you possibly can. You love to sell “victim-hood” to people of color every chance you get because it’s such an easy sell, compared to actually teaching people to stand on their own two feet and take personal responsibility for their own lives and their own communities and their own futures. But you won’t do that, you will never do that, because then you will lose control over people of color. They might actually start thinking for themselves, God forbid!

This is why we will vote for Donald Trump.

Not because he is the most charming character on the block.

Not because he is the most polite politician to have ever graced the oval office.

Not because he is the most palatable choice, or because we love his moral character or because the man never lies, but because we are sick to death of you and all of the destructive crap you are doing to this once beautiful and relatively safe country.

Your ineffective and completely dysfunctional liberal “leadership”(?) has literally destroyed our most beautiful cities, our public education system, and done it’s damndest to rip faith out of people’s lives.

However bad Donald Trump may be, and he is far from perfect, every day we look at you and feel that no matter what Donald Trump says or does there is no possible way he could be any worse for our country than you people are.

We are sick to death of your stupid, destructive, ignorant, and intolerant behavior and beliefs — parading as “wokeness.” We are beyond sick of your hypocrisy and B.S.

We are fed up with your disrespectful divisiveness and constant unrelenting harping and whining and complaining (while you live in the most privileged nation in the world), while making literally zero contributions of anything positive to our society.

Your entire focus is on ripping things down, never ever building anything up. Think about that as there is something fundamentally very wrong in the psychology of people who choose destruction as their primary modus operandi.

When Donald J Trump is reelected, don’t blame us, look in the mirror and blame yourselves. Because you are the ones that are responsible for the rise of Donald Trump. You are the ones who have created this “monster” that you so despise, by your very actions. By your refusal to respect your fellow Americans, and the things that are important to us.

You have made fun of the “fly-over states,” the people who “cling to their guns and religion,” the middle class factory workers and coal miners and underprivileged rural populations that you dismissively call “yahoos” and “deplorables.”

You have mocked our faith and our religion.

You have mocked our values and our patriotism.

You have trampled our flag and insulted our veterans and treated our first responders with contempt and hatred.

You have made environmentalism your religion, while trashing every city you have taken responsibility for.

You scream from the rooftops about “global warming” and a “green new deal” while allowing tens of thousands of homeless people to cover your streets in literal sh!t and garbage and needles and plastic waste without doing a single thing to help them or solve the environmental crisis your failed social policies are creating.

But we’re supposed to put YOU in charge of the environment while gutting our entire economy to institute this plan when you can’t even clean up a single city??

You complain — endlessly — yet have failed to solve a single social problem anywhere. In fact, all you have done is create more of them.

We’ve had enough. We are tired of quietly sitting by and being the “silent” majority. So don’t be surprised when the day comes when we finally respond. And trust me it’s coming, sooner than you might think. And also trust me when I say it won’t be pretty. Get ready.

When Donald Trump is reelected it will be because you and your “comrades” have chosen to trash the police, harass law-abiding citizens, and go on rampages destroying public property that we have all paid for and you have zero respect for.

When Donald Trump is reelected it will be because we are sick of your complete and utter nonsense and destruction. How does it feel to know that half of this country finds you FAR more despicable than Donald J. Trump, the man you consider to be the anti-Christ? Let that sink in.

We consider you to be more despicable, more dangerous, more stupid, and more narcissistic than Donald Trump. Maybe allow yourself a few seconds of self-reflection to let that sink in. This election isn’t about Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden. This is about Donald Trump vs YOU.

So if on the morning of November 4 (or more likely January 19, by the time the Supreme Court will weigh in on the mail-in ballot fiasco that we are headed towards), and Donald J. Trump is reelected?

The only people you have to blame is the left-wing media drones and yourselves. You did this. Yep you.”

Emmy Schmemmy – ratings down 67%

Living proof that normal people couldn’t care less about woke celebrities telling the commoners about their politics.

It’s hard to keep up. One year it’s climate change, another #METOO, another asylum seekers, another LGBTQI. Now BLM and COVID.

One would think the organizers would realize that woke causes have driven a 67% drop in eyeballs. That’s the power of virtue signaling. Diminishing returns.

100% self inflicted. That why the more celebs bang the Democrat drum, the better it is for Trump. Keep up the good work. Americans are done with these clowns whose only grip on reality comes after checking into the Betty Ford Clinic.

Most reliable indicator of fear surrounding COVID-19 is not what you think

Our trip to the Aldi supermarket in the affluent suburb of Mosman in Sydney, Australia last Saturday revealed one immutable truth. That even the elderly have absolutely no concerns about social distancing when fighting over limited supplies of Lacura face creams that were on the ‘special buys’ list. We think this is probably the most accurate indicator of “fear” surrounding COVID-19 – absolutely none. We’ve seen more crowded Japanese subway carriages at peak hour.

Forget hand sanitiser, masks and respecting social distance. Just push, jostle, elbow, bustle and fight to the death to lay one’s hands on a $19 moisturizer. It felt like toilet paper rationing all over again.

Forgive the preamble.

We have analysed the latest COVID-19 deaths as a percentage of state populations across America and Australia to get a feel for the reality and check whether media hysteria is unfounded.

New York State was the worst of all, representing 3x the national average. 10 of the top 17 states with rates above the national average were Democrat controlled (blue columns).

In aggregate, c.121,000 have died under Democrat-controlled states and 78,400 under Republican-controlled states (red columns) as at Sept 21, 2020 according to CDC data.

We also note that Victoria, a state in Australia, has a death rate that still remains extremely low on a relative basis (despite being 10x the rest of the country combined) yet has some of the harshest lockdown laws.

Comparing Victoria to US states that imposed no lockdowns at all, the numbers don’t justify a draconian curfew. Utah has a population about half that of Victoria and a death toll from COVID at 50% of Victoria, despite no lockdown imposed at all. One could make a case for population density but why does NSW have 1/10th the death toll with similar demographics and a relatively open economy?

Note that all US states that had no lockdown had death tolls at least half the national average. Every single one is Republican-controlled.

In America, 99.94% of the country has no succumbed to coronavirus. In Victoria, 99.99% of the state population hasn’t died from it. In Australia 99.997% of citizens have managed to survive.

The data is self explanatory. US deaths are at 1/3rd the levels at the peak but the media can’t stray from the narrative that the risks of a new wave are around the corner. No. The virus remains contagious but not that virulent. Someone mentioned an election soon…

We shall be updating more data in coming days. Suffice to say, economies should be reopened and special attention paid to protecting more vulnerable members of society (who clearly weren’t at Aldi Mosman).

Not even one question on peace deal from WH journalists

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped the assembled journalists for not asking one single question (video here) on the historic peace deal signed. So entrenched is is their Trump Derangement Syndrome that they can’t stomach anything that might be construed as a positive.

We also found it highly amusing that Obama’s former Secretary of State John Kerry said a peace deal between Arab states and Israel would never happen. Amusing to think how these career politicians can’t form the very deals over decades that Trump has completed in his first term.

Journalistic integrity will only return when the press loves America more than they hate Trump.

Kamala Harris sponsored fund bails out man charged with sexually assaulting 8-yo

As the media were too preoccupied praising Kamala Harris for making ‘Timberland boots cool again” – after they lambasted Melania Trump for wearing them several years ago – journalists overlooked the fact that the Minnesota Freedom Fund she openly endorsed bailed out Timothy Wayne Columbus.

He faces up to 30 years in prison for allegedly sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl in 2015. He was released from a Minneapolis jail in early July on $75,000 bail, according to jail records.

In August, MFF paid $350,000 in cash to release twice-convicted rapist Christopher Boswell from jail. Boswell currently faces charges of kidnapping and sexual assault as well.

The fund bailed out Lionel Timms from jail in late July on a third-degree felony assault charge for allegedly assaulting a person on a bus. Timms was arrested again while out on bail for allegedly assaulting a bar manager, who was left with a traumatic brain injury.

MFF Interim Executive Director Greg Lewin released a statement in response to Timms’ second offence saying his arrest while out on bail was a “failure of the criminal justice system.

Deshaun Jermain Boyd was released from jail on $70,000 bail in July after being charged with 1st-degree aggravated robbery. He stomped on the head of a man with a cane and robbed him.

Do we need to go any further to show up a system where a potential president proudly paints criminals as victims?
