Forget all the partisan video edits of the presidential debate in the media.
This 8 minute conversation between Senator Ted Cruz and former FBI director James Comey testifying about the fake Russia probe is simply sinister. This is what corruption truly looks like. Where a supposedly independent government agency is deeply partisan in its actions.
What a circus. A screaming match. Like two bald men arguing over a comb. Talking over each other and lots of name calling. We’ve seen more gracious belly flops in Olympic 10m diving.
None of the content was fresh other than Trump talking about his push to lower drug prices and Biden’s Roe v Wade attack on SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett. .
No doubt the media will pick the bones of the highlights and edit to fit whatever narrative they want to portray to say their man won. In reality, the content didn’t mean much. It was all noise.
If some were looking for dignity, they opened the wrong door. Trump was Trump. Typically boisterous and he cut in way too much meaning Joe Biden couldn’t get a word in edgeways.
Biden on the other hand was way better than the low expectations set. Sure he stuttered now and again as he rattled off his “here’s the deal” messages while staring down the camera but he came across far more statesmanlike. No question. But his script was tired and predictable.
Biden started strong on COVID but flailed on the economy, environment, taxes and riots/race. Trump nailed him on Biden’s lack of police endorsements.
Trump also muddled the response on condemning the KKK and white supremacists despite doing so explicitly in 2017. Saying “stand down, stand by” to the Proud Boys will no doubt be played on a loop. He should have been firm on it.
We could g o on critiquing more minutiae but what is the point? Much of the back end was mud slinging. Slagging off Hunter Biden and his cocaine habit or Trump’s $750 income tax return charge.
We doubt many shifted from their default positions heading into the debate.
In summary, most can’t wait to get November 3rd behind them.
How the Left loves to say Obama’s presidency was scandal-less. We’ve always thought scandalous.
If the FBI’s actions surrounding the investigation of Trump before the 2016 election was as squeaky clean and by the book as made out, why did a swathe of agents take out ‘liability insurance‘ two weeks before Trump took office?
“Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.”
“[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier.”
“Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”
“Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”
“[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”
“[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.
“I’m tellying [sic] man, if this thing ever gets FOIA’d, there are going to be some tough questions asked,” one agent wrote. “[A]nd a great deal of those will be related to Brian having a scope way outside the boundaries of logic[.]”
“We have some loose ends to tie up, and we all need to meet to discuss what to do with each case (he said shut down Razor),” one agent texted, referring to Crossfire Razor, the FBI’s internal code name for the investigation of Flynn.
“[S]o glad they’re closing Razor,” an agent responded.
“[D]oing all this election research – I think some of these guys want a [C]linton presidency,” one agent wrote on Aug. 11, shortly after the FBI opened the Crossfire Hurricane investigation against Trump.
The Prince and Princess of Woke continue to become ever more cringeworthy.
It is surreal to hear lectures from people like this imploring we build “communities of compassion.” Harry infamously wore a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party and Meghan thinks a nuclear family destroying self-professed Marxist co-founder of BLM is someone to aspire to and worthy of a Netflix docuseries.
Harry blathered about clamping down on hate speech and misinformation. Don’t they read the mainstream media or see the party they are endorsing took 100 days to condemn rioting, looting and destruction of public property in their own back yard?
No wonder the Queen had the Palace slap her grandson.
It seems failed Democrat presidential nominee Michael Bloomberg is in hot water after pledging to pay the fines of 32,000 felons in Florida so that they can vote in the election. By law felons who have outstanding court fines or fees cannot vote.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody referred Bloomberg to the FBI to request a criminal investigation.
The AG’s letter to the FBI included this passage from the Florida Dept of State, Division of Elections:
“Even other innocuous offering of an incentive simply to vote could run afoul of section 104.045 or section 104.061, or both, depending upon the circumstances involved. That is, incentives could be offered to a voter in a way that would be designed to directly or indirectly cause the voter or a larger group of voters to vote in a particular manner. In such a case, the person giving the incentive could be guilty of violating section 104.061, Florida Statutes, which makes it illegal to “directly or indirectly give or promise anything of value to another in casting his or her vote.”
To the Democrats, the ends justify the means. Never mind the law. Because in their view, if they can get the orange man out of the way, then all will be forgiven.
What a farce. These are the responses given by senior officials in the Victoria government when questioned over who was responsible for ordering private security guards which led to the hotel quarantine outbreak fiasco.
These are the very people who expect Victorians to put trust in their ability to execute.
Selective memories aka lies.
No doubt when Premier Dan Andrews testifies at this enquiry, he’ll have forgotten too.
Any other state premier would be forced to resign over this debacle. Watch a willing media skip over this blithering incompetence and praise Dan Andrews for bringing forward the timeline to reopen the economy from lockdown because of his stewardship which he will end reneging on.
Let’s not forget the omnibus the premier is trying to ram through parliament which will allow unqualified public servants to arrest and detain Victorian residents indefinitely on the grounds of suspicion alone. No facts. Just a hunch they think one could be up to no good.
What a pack of total frauds. This montage exposes the utter hypocrisy of the Democrats.
In 2020 they are foaming at the mouth to prevent a SCOTUS nomination when in 2016 they were 100% for it.
Beyond this hypocrisy, is this idea that if the Dems get power in the Senate they’ll look to increase the SCOTUS bench to 11 and ram in liberal judges to skew the judiciary.
So on the one hand, Democrats are saying RBG’s dying wishes to hold her vacancy til after the election should be respected. On the other hand they are ignoring her very own words with respect to numbers on the bench:
“…nine seems to be a good number; it’s been that way for a long time” adding that “court packing” was a “bad idea.“
“A Man named Harold, a President named Barack and a Vice President named Joe.
This summarizes how most liberals view the US military:
Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On Aug. 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist.
He was returned to America with full military honors.
It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of General and Flag officers killed in the line of duty.
Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General Casey killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. Vice President Biden wasn’t there either. Neither was the Secretary of Defense.
Flags were not even lowered half-mast.
Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri.
Brown was at best a young thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone. Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown’s funeral!
Neither Obama nor Biden would attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug.
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.
When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.
But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, the Obama/Biden administration ordered all flags be flown at half-mast.
There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course.
A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
No wonder most “REAL” Americans hold Obama in such contempt, especially members of our Military.
And Biden is now expounding on how great the Obama/Biden administration was.
