The U.S. economy is likely in the deepest slump since the Great Depression but Americans still think President Donald Trump is better on economic issues than Democrat rival Joe Biden. The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll reveals that voters picked President Trump over Biden when it comes to who would be best at cutting unemployment and getting Americans back to work, by 48 percent to 35 percent. On handling the overall econonmy, Trump bests Biden by 48 percent to 37 percent. Trump’s continued strength on economic issues is notable because Americans have taken a much grimmer view of the economy as unemployment has shot up to post-World War II records and the coronavirus shutdowns have thrown the economy into contraction. Just five percent of Americans rate the economy as “excellent,” down from 18 percent at the end of 2019. The share rating the economy as “good” has fallen to 17 percent from 35 percent in December. The share rating the economy as “poor” has shot up to 45 percent from 14 percent in December. Those who rate the economy as “only fair” have remained almost steady at around 30 percent. Trumps’ overall job approval rating stood at 45 percent in the June, down 1 percentage point from April. It is actually up a percentage point since the December poll. His strongly approve rating fell 3 points since December to 31 percent, while somewhat approve rose 3 points to 14 percent. The strongly disapprove rating went up 3 points from December to 47 percent. Forty percent of Americans say they have positive feelings about Trump, while 37 percent say they have positive feelings about Biden. Trump’s “very positive” rating is at 29 percent, compared with just 17 percent for Biden. In a dramatic illustration of just divided Americans are on political matters, Trump also far outpaces Biden on the “very negative” score, 45 percent to 26 percent. In the head-to-head poll asking who would voters cast a ballot for if the election were held today, Biden beats Trump by 49 percent to 42 percent. That is almost unchanged from the poll taken last July and each poll in between.
President Donald Trump’s executive order on Thursday cracking down on social media censorship stirred protests from the usual quarters. Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that Trump’s order is “an extreme abuse of power” and “demonstrates a complete misunderstanding of the role and function of the federal government.” The opposite is true. Trump’s executive order is well-founded in the principles of the First Amendment and stays well within existing law. The order tackles the thorny problem of selective censorship by platforms that, while privately owned, have become the public spaces of our digital era. At a moment when most of us are literally prohibited from gathering physically in large numbers, due to coronavirus restrictions, the only spaces in which we can exercise our First Amendment rights meaningfully are online. And the companies that own those spaces have monopoly power; there are few alternatives. There is nothing in the executive order that violates those companies’ right — under the First Amendment — to say, or exclude, what they want. But it enforces the terms of the special exemption that those companies have enjoyed from the libel laws that apply to everyone else. It also emphasizes the government’s own right not to advertise on platforms that practice censorship. And the order holds those companies to their own terms of service, reporting instances of bias. Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act provides: “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” The moment social media companies begin policing ordinary opinions — or “fact-checking” matters very much in dispute — they cease to become mere platforms and become publishers, as vulnerable to libel laws as any ordinary person is. Twitter’s extraordinary intervention this week in slapping a fact-check warning on President Trump’s tweets about California’s plan for mail-in voting was not only factually incorrect itself, but also premature. Two separate lawsuits were filed in the past few days challenging Gov. Gavin Newsom’s authority to send mail-in ballot applications to all registered voters. Twitter’s “fact check” was just another statement of opinion. It has no special claim to immunity. Trump’s executive order on social media censorship follows the pattern of a similar order last year about free speech on college campuses. In that case, Trump insisted on “compliance with the First Amendment for public institutions and compliance with stated institutional policies regarding freedom of speech for private institutions.” He directed federal agencies to make sure “institutions that receive Federal research or education grants” upheld free speech principles. That executive order was constitutional, and so is the new one. It does not dictate to private institutions what they can and cannot say, or exclude. But it removes the sense that they are entitled to federal money and regulatory shelter. It is Biden who seems not to understand free speech and the Constitution. In his statement Thursday evening, Biden complained that “President Trump believes that he should be permitted to say whatever he would like, regardless whether it is true or false.” Of course he can, within the boundaries of the law. So can anyone. That is precisely what the First Amendment is about. It protects Biden’s lies about the NAACP just as much as it protects Trump’s tweets. Biden does not understand that. And on the question of social media companies, he cannot help contradicting himself. On the one hand, he says that private companies should not be required to “provide a venue for, and amplification of, the President’s falsehoods.” In the same paragraph, Biden says that the same private companies “should be held accountable” for content they allow to be disseminated on their platforms that he deems “false.” So — which is it? Amazingly, Biden is running against the First Amendment. Like Hillary Clinton before him, he rejects the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United (2010), which protected the free speech of corporations. In his platform, Biden calls for a constitutional amendment to reverse that decision. He has a poor record on free speech generally: the Obama-Biden administration even backed a proposal at the United Nations by Muslim nations to restrict “blasphemy.” Trump’s rhetoric on this issue, as on others, is combative and over-the-top: he cannot “close … down” social media companies. Yet his actions, as usual, not only obey the Constitution, but also reinforce it. Biden would do the opposite.
Exactly!! And well said, Joel. Joel B. Pollak is the author of that spot-on op/ed. For more, scroll down, and read the next article written by Jim Hanson, a former U.S. Army Special Forces operator.
True, we have not even elected him president yet, but isn’t it already time to start dismantling Joe Biden’s presidential library? After all, he has a long history of supporting white supremacists and just being an all-around racially insensitive, privileged white geezer. To be fair, Mr. Biden did not invent the Democratic Party or its racism. But for nearly 50 years he has knowingly and willingly associated himself with and supported the causes of the Democratic Party, known throughout history for its association with white supremacy. Just this week, The New York Times “celebrated” Memorial Day the only way they know how. They wrote an editorial denigrating the U.S. military and disparaging a bunch of military figures who have been highly revered throughout history for their leadership in the U.S. military. In the process, apparently, The New York Times editorial board made a shocking discovery that America fought a civil war back in the 1860s called, well, the “Civil War.” It is also known in some parts as the “War Between the States,” the “War of Northern Aggression,” the “Late Unpleasantness,” and, even still, sometimes just “The War.” These same crack editorial page writers also, in the process of discovering this civil war, discovered that for hundreds of years the abominable practice of slavery was legal in the United States. It was legal, in fact, until a Republican president named Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and pushed through the 13th Amendment in 1865. “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacists?” asks The New York Times editorial board. This is a fairly hilarious question that reveals more about The New York Times editorial board than anything about the U.S. military. Anyone in America with even the most passing affiliation with the U.S. armed services knows that the American military is — without equal — the most egalitarian institution in the country. Military service has been a pathway to the American dream for millions of Americans, regardless of income, gender, race or religious beliefs. The fact that The New York Times editorial board does not know this tells you all you need to know about them. As the U.S. military was helping millions make leaps and bounds towards the American Dream, Democrat Joe Biden was busy kibitzing with actual white supremacists. And we are not just talking about former Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, who was an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan before becoming the longest-serving senator in U.S. history. Both lifelong Democrats, Mr. Biden and Mr. Byrd served in the Senate together and caucused together for more than 35 years. But wait there’s more! Just last year, Mr. Biden bragged how well he worked with other fierce segregationists in his own party. So enthusiastic is Mr. Biden about his fond memories of working with the ol’ time racists that whenever he waxes poetic about them, he slips into a fake Southern accent. At a fundraiser last year, Mr. Biden recalled warmly — in a fake Southern accent — how one of the old racist bulls “never called me ‘boy.’ He always called me ‘son.’” This is how Mr. Biden always talks when channeling his party’s long, ugly history with racism and racist politics. In 2012, the last time he was fighting for his political life, Mr. Biden donned a fake Southern accent when he bizarrely warned a gathering of black voters in rural Virginia that his opponent would “put y’all back in chains” if elected. It’s the same fake Southern accent he used last week when he told black voters that they “ain’t black” if they have any second thoughts about voting for him to be president. While The New York Times editorial board is busy dishonorably smearing the U.S. military today, they would be far more effective if they trained their vitriol on the Democratic nominee for president and the future monument to his long career in Washington. Or, as Ronald Reagan might have said, “Mr. Biden, tear down that library!”
No kidding!! Thanks Charlie! Veteran columnist Charles Hurt is responsible for that brutal assessment of Joe Biden, and his racial hypocrisy. As Charlie rightly notes, slavery was legal in this country until a REPUBLICAN President, Abe Lincoln, changed that. As for the Klan.. Here’s a dirty little secret that Democrats don’t want you to know.. For the first CENTURY of it’s existence (i.e. 1865 to roughly 1967 give/take), the KKK was almost 100% exclusively made up of white DEMOCRATS. Yeah.. That’s right. I wonder how many black registered voters are aware of that. That’d be an interesting poll.. 🙂
Joe Biden’s apparent cognitive decline was on display again Tuesday evening when he committed several blunders during an interview with Yahoo News. The Democrat presumptive nominee seemed to forget the name of the coronavirus: “Thousands of meatpacker— workers got sick, got cona— uh, uh, got the virus and some died,” he said. Another time, he misstated the amount of dollars he doled out during the Obama-era Recovery Act by about $720 billion. “I had the job of getting out $84 billion in 18 months in the Recovery Act,” he said, but in reality, it was $800 billion. Biden temporarily forgot what century we’re in. “The idea that you go through the 20th Century without— with just 12 years of education, er, the 21st Century,” he said. Biden made a bizarre claim about hydroxycloroquine, the drug some doctors have said has cured their patients of coronavirus. “It’s like saying maybe if you injected Clorox into your blood, you know, it may cure you,” he claimed, referring to bleach.
If you didn’t see this live, then you really need to click on the text above to watch this.. We’re not reporting this to poke fun at Joe’s obvious “cognitive decline,” but rather to show everyone that Joe simply isn’t mentally fit for the job. It’s that elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about honestly. But, it’s true. Joe is a train wreck waiting to happen. He should have just retired from public life in Jan 2017 after his time as VP came to an end…and gone to his mansion in Delaware to focus on being a grandfather, etc.
Former Vice President Joe Biden renewed his accusation that President Donald Trump is ignoring antisemitism — even though the president condemned it at length, once again, just a few weeks ago. Biden, speaking to an online fundraising event, claimed that the president was “not saying a word” about antisemitism, according to the pool report (via Sahil Kapur of NBC News). Not only has Trump repeatedly condemned antisemitism, but he did so extensively just a few weeks ago, in issuing a proclamation declaring May to be Jewish Heritage Month. The president said: Throughout history, the Jewish people have demonstrated an unbreakable spirit, overcoming suffering, cruel oppression, violence, and bigotry. Tragically, Jewish men, women, and children continue to face anti-Semitic discrimination, persecution, and violence today, and Jewish institutions and places of worship remain targets of vandalism and destruction. Our country has wept too many times in the aftermaths of horrific attacks, including last April when a murderer opened fire in a synagogue in Poway, California, taking innocent life and shattering families in a cowardly display of evil. Such unconscionable acts are an abomination to all decent and compassionate people. Hatred is intolerable and has no place in our hearts or in our society. We must therefore vigorously confront anti-Semitic discrimination and violence against members of the Jewish community. That is why I signed an Executive Order last December, bolstering my Administration’s efforts to combat the rise of anti-Semitism in the United States and build a culture of respect, humanity, and equality. This month, we reaffirm our commitment to never compromise our steadfast support for the Jewish community, our rejection of anti-Semitic bigotry, and our disdain for malicious attacks of hatred. Jewish Americans strengthen, sustain, and inspire our country through dedication to family, respect for cherished traditions, and commitment to the values of justice and equality that unite Americans of every faith and background. We give thanks for the profound contributions that Jewish Americans continue to make to our society, and way of life. Biden appears to have been referring to recent protests in Michigan against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) and her strict stay-at-home orders. A few people used the swastika symbol — to accuse Whitmer of being a fascist, not to express solidarity with fascism or antisemitism. While offensive to many, the symbol appears at both left- and right-wing protests in that context, as Breitbart News recently noted. The swastika appeared in pro-union protests against Gov. Scott Walker (R) at the Wisconsin state capitol in 2011, for example — a cause that was broadly embraced by the Democratic Party. The symbol was used to foment outrage against Walker — albeit at the cost of shocking observers. Tuesday’s fundraiser was hardly the first time that Biden has made false accusations that Trump is sympathetic toward antisemitism. He launched his campaign last April with the false claim that Trump called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, “very fine people” in August 2017. In fact, Trump said that the neo-Nazis should be “condemned totally.”
Joe is a disingenuous, self-serving, “useful idiot” simply sticking to the liberal narrative that Republicans are racists and anti-Semites. As it relates to President Trump, clearly the narrative is factually inaccurate, and his efforts with the Jewish community and with Israel show his commitment to, and support of, the Jewish people. He relocated the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. He has a VERY strong personal relationship with Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu. His son-in-law, Jared, is Jewish. And, on and on.. But, the facts be damned. Joe and his campaign figure if they keep saying that Trump is an anti-Semite over and over, enough people on the fence will believe it and vote for Biden in November. That’s why the left likes to play the race card, even when they know it’s bs. It’s really that simple and cynical.
Former Vice President Joe Biden promised Tuesday to reverse several measures taken by President Donald Trump against the Palestinian Authority due in part to its support for terrorism and rejection of negotiations. In a statement to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Biden said: “I will reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, find a way to re-open the PLO’s diplomatic mission in Washington, and resume the decades-long economic and security assistance efforts to the Palestinians that the Trump Administration stopped.” Biden apparently did not provide any concessions he would expect from the Palestinians in return. Instead, Biden claimed that reversing Trump’s policies would revive dialogue with the Palestinians toward a two-state solution. But the Obama/Biden administration made no progress toward a two-state solution in eight years, with generous U.S. funding in place and a deliberate policy of “distancing” the U.S. from Israel. Moreover, Biden failed to mention the reasons the Trump administration took those measures against the Palestinian Authority. The “decades-long economic and security assistance” was halted for several reasons, one of which was that the Palestinian Authority persists in paying stipends to the families of jailed or dead terrorists. For example, in 2018, President Trump signed the Taylor Force Act — named for an American veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv in 2016. The law which bars the use of U.S. taxpayer funds to support the Palestinian Authority as long as it continues to reward terror. (Biden did not explain how he would repeal that legislation.) Another reason the U.S. cut aid was the Palestinians’ continued refusal to negotiate a peace agreement with Israel — a refusal that persisted throughout the Obama years, even with lavish American funding flowing. Trump tweeted in 2018: “It’s not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others. As an example, we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel. We have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table, but Israel, for that, would have had to pay more. But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” The White House also cut $200 million in funding to the Palestinian Authority in 2018 because of the role that the Hamas terror group plays in controlling the Gaza Strip. And Trump drastically cut the aid that the U.S. gives to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), a special organization that caters specifically to Palestinian “refugees” from Israel’s War of Independence in 1948 — started by Palestinians and surrounding Arab states — and their descendants. UNRWA camps have often encouraged Palestinian terror and anti-Israel indoctrination. Critics also say that UNRWA also perpetuates the Palestinian refugee issue, rather than allowing refugees to be absorbed by other countries, as Israel had absorbed Jewish refugees from Arab countries. The U.S. consulate in “East Jerusalem” was not even in “East Jerusalem,” but in the Western part of the city, near downtown, on the Israeli side of the 1949 armistice line (also known as the 1967 border). Its old functions still exist, and are handled by the U.S. embassy — of which the old consulate building is now an annex. (Biden has said he would not move the U.S. embassy back from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, though he also said it should not have been moved — despite commitments by every U.S. president since Bill Clinton to do so.) Finally, the Trump administration closed the Washington, DC, office of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 2018 because, as the Jerusalem Post noted at the time, “it was congressionally obligated to close the diplomatic facility should Palestinian officials target Israel at the International Criminal Court” (ICC). The Trump administration was obligated by law to close the office once Palestinians announced plans to take Israeli officials to the ICC. The fact that the Palestinians rejected peace talks was an additional reason for the closure. In sum, Joe Biden would give Palestinians hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars per year without any commitment to stop rewarding terrorism or to renew negotiations. He would restore the U.S. Consulate in West Jerusalem without any concessions from the Palestinians, and reopen the PLO office in Washington in defiance of U.S. law. His stance on restoring funding also implies the repeal of the Taylor Force Act, which is not only meant to protect Israelis but to deter and punish Palestinian terrorists for attacks on Americans. Biden claims that these concessions to appease the Palestinians would encourage negotiations toward a two-state solutions. But eight years of concessions under the Obama administration failed to achieve that goal.
Exactly!!! But, Joe Biden doesn’t care about the facts, nor about actually solving this issue. It’s just politics..and in his declining mental health, from his perspective…If Trump does it this way, I’ll do it the other way. It’s really that sophomoric and simple. Joe, and his campaign, don’t care about the fact that the Palestinian Authority (sometimes called the PLA or PLO) funds Hamas; an Islamic terrorist organization!! President Trump was absolutely right to cut off American TAX-PAYER funding to a terrorist organization, and demand reforms. After all, why on earth would we give TAX-PAYER monies to an organization that hates us and would kill every single one of us, if it could?!? How crazy is that?!? Thanks to Joel B. Pollak for that excellent assessment.
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has accomplished something for women that no other Democrat could: He has exposed the fraud of the #MeToo movement. Most of its high-profile supporters responded by smothering it to death with a pillow. You see, Mr. Biden’s candidacy, combined with a credible accusation against him of rape in 1993 by Tara Reade, who was then a member of his Senate staff, has made it undeniable that the #MeToo movement has been a cynical political charade. Many women around the country were heartened by the effort, and it’s these women who are harmed by not just the hypocrisy but by the grotesque indifference to the impact of frauds like this. Finally, after weeks of ignoring it, Mr. Biden personally addressed the accusations on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” He denied the accusations as has his campaign repeatedly on his behalf. Many were hoping this moment of personal denial would be enough, allowing the media and Democratic leadership to move on. They tried ignoring the charges for weeks and were only forced to address them when the haunting audio of Ms. Reade’s mother on “The Larry King Show” in 1993 asking for advice forced the media to face the story. So many Democrats, Hollywood celebrities and liberal activists lifted their voices in outrage and indignation in response to sexual assault allegations against now-Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. As they ordered us to “believe all women,” we heard denunciations of due process and that the accused must prove their innocence. The man pointed at would be given no quarter because the rules have changed — or so we were lectured. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who for a time was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president and was primarily responsible for former Sen. Al Franken’s resignation from the Senate because of sexual harassment allegations, has endorsed Mr. Biden for president. During a recent video meeting, Ms. Gillibrand of New York said, “Vice President Biden has vehemently denied these allegations, and I support Vice President Biden.” Well, that should do it. Sen. Kamala D. Harris, California Democrat, was leading the charge against Justice Kavanaugh during the Senate hearings. Carrie Severino, in a piece at FoxNews.com noted, “As recently as last year Harris said that she believed numerous women who accused Biden of unwanted touching. Of course, that was when she was running against Biden for the nomination. Now that Harris is on the Biden VP shortlist, it’s nothing but crickets.” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has also endorsed Mr. Biden. When confronted by a reporter asking about the “different standard” between Justice Kavanaugh and Mr. Biden, the woman who condemned Justice Kavanaugh snapped at the reporter saying she didn’t need a “lecture,” on the “believe all women” issue. The speaker then went on to laud Mr. Biden for his work supporting women’s issues, authoring the Violence Against Women Act as an example, leading her to stamp him as a person of “great character.” Lost upon Mrs. Pelosi is the fact that the men who have egregious histories of abusing women in Hollywood and in Washington, D.C., have a history of specifically and deliberately “working on women’s issues.” This strategy seems to provide a bubble of protection, just ask imprisoned movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, former President Bill Clinton, disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Even the woman considered the founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke, has decided that Mr. Biden is still “electable,” admitting in a tweet that “the inconvenient truth is that this story is impacting us differently because it hits at the heart of one of the most important elections of our lifetime.” In other words, politics wins out when the accused is a Democrat. The woman is suddenly expendable. For the party and these activist liberals, women are a commodity to be used and controlled. Rose McGowan understands this. She is the actress and feminist activist who has been consistently committed to issues of sexual assault and was the first to make a rape allegation public against Weinstein. For a while, Miss McGowan was the lone voice from the Hollywood #MeToo movement expressing her disgust at the hypocrisy over how Ms. Reade has been treated, while condemning the Democratic Party for its hypocrisy and abandonment of women.
Agreed. Thanks to columnist Tammy Bruce for that brutally accurate assessment. The Democratic leadership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and of course Joe Biden (among many others) are spectacular hypocrites. For more of this article, click on the text above.
Monday, Pocahontas defended former Vice President Joe Biden against accusations of sexual assault. How did Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., do it? She said this about his the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s recent one and only interview given last week about the accusation by a former staffer that he sexually assaulted the staffer in 1993. “The vice president’s answers were credible and convincing,” Warren said. “I support the vice president. I support his campaign and I’m proud to endorse him for president.” Well, that’s quite a change. After all, this is the same Liz who took a baton to former New York City mayor and presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s legs for allegations that were far less sordid. Let’s walk down memory lane, shall we? During one of the debates for Democratic presidential candidates – when Warren and Bloomberg were still in the race, Warren said this about a derogatory comment Bloomberg supposedly made to a woman: “I hope you heard what his defense was: I’ve been nice to some women,” Warren said. “The mayor has to stand on his record. And what we need to know is exactly what’s lurking out there.” Bloomberg denied ever making the derogatory comment. Warren said: “Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements, so we can hear their side of the story?” Bloomberg responded: “We have a very few nondisclosure agreements.” Warren cut him off and said: “How many is that?” “Let me finish,” Bloomberg said. “How many is that?” Warren interrupted again. And with that, nearly $1 billion Bloomberg has spent on his presidential campaign swirled down the toilet. The only thing left of Bloomberg after that was the bill. So what’s changed? Well, Pocahontas now wants to become chief running mate. And if there’s one thing that can get Liz to sing a new tune, its political survival. The fact is that the requirements for Joe’s VP changed from being a woman to being a woman who looks the other way when it comes to an accusation of Joe looking at and touching other women. I mean, you could accept being his VP and still think he’s a lech. Has anyone considered that? But that’s not political. That’s honest. And politicians don’t do honest. Take Liz, who spent her professional life pretending to be Native American, with no reservations. So this is small potatoes. But also: honesty destroys Joe’s candidacy. Saying Joe is a handsy creeper ruins his claim as the moral alternative to Trump. So instead, just lie. And know that becoming VP is just a heartbeat away from becoming president. Just don’t let Liz sneak up on Joe. One good scare could change history.
Indeed.. Thanks as usual to Greg Gutfeld for his biting wit and sarcasm, and calling out Sen. Elisabeth Warren (D-MA) on her brazen hypocrisy. She just wants to be the VP pick so bad, that she’s willing to sell out like that…and doesn’t care one bit. She is what is worst in politics. No wonder she finished THIRD in the DEMOCRATIC primaries…in her own state among DEMOCRAT voters. It’s bad when your base in your own state doesn’t want anything to do with you. Of course she won’t be picked for the VP position by Joe. But, if by some weird stroke of luck, it happens, it’ll be like winning the lotto for the Republicans.
Joe Biden’s mental blunders during a Friday MSNBC appearance were overshadowed by his denial of Tara Reade’s sexual assault claims, but they continue to underscore his apparent cognitive decline. Biden twice told Morning Joe that 600,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. “Over 600,000 dead, many of them who are those workers, those nurses, doctors, some of them,” he said. A hot mic picked up a gasp from one of the hosts, but he continued, “Because they have put themselves in the position to save other people’s lives, protect the rest of society.” “And we talk about that number like 600-plus thousand people,” he said, before host Joe Scarborough interjected, “Sixty.” “Sixty thousand,” Scarborough said. “Six— sixty thousand,” Biden responded. “I misp— 60,000.” According to reported statistics, the actual number as of Friday is 65,068 deaths. For a second time, he awkwardly used the word “intercourse,” when he seemingly wanted to say “discourse” or “interaction.” “The pandemic is that the president has no intercourse whatsoever with the rest of the count— uh, the world,” he said. Earlier this week, he said halted global travel will stifle “economic intercourse.” In the very same thought, he seemed to forget the name of the Ebola virus. “We led— Barack Obama led on the corona, I mean, excuse me, in the pandemic that occurred when we were in office. It was kept in Africa,” Biden said. Ebola was never classified as a “pandemic.” The World Health Organization referred to it as a “situation.”
Joe Biden talking extemporaneously really is the gift that keeps on giving. There is ZERO doubt that he is going through “cognitive decline,” which is pc for becoming more senile. Even his supporters in the dominantly liberal mainstream media , like Joe Scarborough here, are trying to bail him out by politely/subtly correcting him. We hope Joe Biden continues to do more interviews and talk without teleprompters. 🙂
In case you missed it, check out this CNN headline: “Trump goes into hiding.” I guess CNN should know. Hide and seek is their expertise. Take the story of Tara Reade, former Vice President Joe Biden’s accuser. As she gains credibility, who loses it? CNN. After all, they’ve avoided this story, even as evidence appeared on CNN decades ago, when the accuser’s mom mentioned the alleged assault to Larry King: LARRY KING: San Luis Obispo, California, hello. JEANETTE ALTIMUS, MOTHER OF BIDEN ACCUSER: Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him. KING: So she had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it? ALTIMUS: That’s true. You’ve got to love CNN for avoiding a story that appeared on CNN. This video was not unearthed by Fox News, but by The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald’s progressive outfit. And what did CNN do? What do you expect? Forget President Trump “hiding.” CNN is now hiding from CNN. CNN ran hundreds of stories on Brett Kavanaugh — with flimsier accusations. Meanwhile, the Biden accuser: Actually worked with him (unlike Kavanaugh’s accusers) Was a Democrat, not an ideological foe (unlike Kavanaugh’s accusers) Told her mother, who then called Larry King during a segment on sex harassment and there’s actual evidence of it! So, where’s CNN’s story? Their silence is the story. They’re protecting Biden so he can be president. And Reade? The media has tossed her story into the Juanita Broaddrick file of crimes that never happened because liberals allegedly committed them. Thank God, CNN did some heroic work during Trump’s first term, though. Chasing down people who posted memes. Which is really the second part of this story. The media will protect you if they like you — and destroy you if they don’t.
Agreed 100%!! And, we’re all to happy to document yet another glaring, brazen example of CNN’s hypocrisy and double standard in covering the news. Thanks to Greg Gutfeld’s usual biting wit and sarcasm. That little ditty was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue (or “Gregologue” as they’re called) on “The Five” on April 27, 2020. To see it and the discussion that followed with his fellow co-hosts on “The Five,” click on the text above. 🙂
