RNC Launches Website Exposing Biden’s ‘Disastrous Record, Hypocrisy, and Flawed Vision for America’

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has launched a website aimed at exposing Joe Biden’s (D) “disastrous record, hypocrisy, and flawed vision for America” ahead of the Democrat National Convention, which kicks off on Monday. The website serves as a one-stop-shop for bite-size facts on the former vice president’s history of corruption. It features “folders” covering a range of topics, from China to Hunter Biden. One folder on TheRealJoe.com is titled “Biden, Inc.,” providing several examples of the Biden family leveraging their name to enrich themselves, as Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute has documented in his New York Times bestseller, Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite. Other folders include Biden on the economy, trade, foreign policy, energy and accountability, crime and guns, health care and abortion, and China. Examples from the “China” folder include: Biden supported China’s membership into the World Trade Organization and granting China “Most Favored Nation” trade status, which killed 3.7 million American jobs. Since touring China in the 1970s, Biden has consistently downplayed the potential economic and military threats from the communist regime and repeatedly supported trade relations with China that hurt Americans. Prior to the Implementation of Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) with China in 2000, Biden voted against human rights standards and enforcement for the country. The website features sections to Biden’s family members, including Hunter Biden, Frank Biden, and James Biden, and offers a cache of videos featuring infamous Biden gaffes and extreme views. It also provides a section for voters to donate or volunteer to defeat Trump’s challenger. “Since Joe Biden refuses to take questions from the press about his radical agenda and failed track record, the RNC is making sure the American people know the real Joe,” RNC spokesman Steve Guest said in a statement. The launch comes on the heels of the Trump campaign and RNC’s $165 million fundraising haul in July, edging out Biden and Democrats by $25 million. Click here to see this site:

Joe Biden’s $7 trillion spending proposal: What’s in it?

Joe Biden wants the federal government to spend close to $7 trillion more over the next decade on issues like health care, housing and climate change — part of a sweeping presidential platform that he says will build on President Barack Obama’s legacy and unite a fractured nation. The former vice president has said he will pay for the measures with about $4 trillion in tax increases on corporations, investments and wealthy Americans. That includes an overhaul of President Trump’s massive $1.5 trillion Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which slashed the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35% and temporarily reduced individual income taxes. “I’m going to get rid of the bulk of Trump’s $2 trillion tax cuts, and a lot of you may not like that, but I’m going to close loopholes like capital gains and stepped-up basis,” Biden said, according to a pool report of the virtual fundraiser. Biden’s trillion-dollar proposals signal that he’ll continue the unprecedented level of government spending that began in mid-March as American life came to a grinding halt because of the COVID-19 crisis. In the span of 10 months, the budget deficit climbed to $2.81 trillion, a record high, according to the Treasury Department. In total, the U.S. government has spent more than $5.6 trillion so far this year. The deficit for fiscal 2020 is projected to hit $3.7 trillion, a record, according to a projection from the Congressional Budget Office. The current record for a fiscal year deficit is $1.41 trillion, set in 2009. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders lauded his one-time rival’s policy measures on Monday night during his Democratic National Convention speech. “Joe will move us forward,” he said, citing Biden’s policies on paid family leave; universal child care; health care; and criminal justice reform. “The future of our democracy is at stake. The future of our economy is at stake. The future of our planet is at stake. We must come together, defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next president and vice president,” he said. “My friends, the price of failure is just too great to imagine.” Biden is expected to formally accept the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday from Wilmington, Del., where he lives and served for years as a U.S. senator, instead of Milwaukee, the original convention site, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

And please do..and be absolutely terrified at the enormity of this boondoggle of government waste and socialism that we and our kids will be stuck with the bill for.  That’s right.  WE will pay for this ridiculous waste if Joe Biden wins in November.  Hopefully this will help sway those on the fence to vote for Trump!

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow skips Durham probe’s guilty plea — despite previous Russia obsession

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was once the go-to cable news host for the latest developments on what she believed was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Now, she seems to be steering clear of the latest developments that undermine the narrative she pushed for years. On Friday, former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was expected to plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign — the so-called Russia “origins” investigation — two sources close to the matter told Fox News. Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation. Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that Page was “not a source” for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The Justice Department relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). However, despite MSNBC covering the expected guilty plea earlier in the day, Maddow completely avoided the subject during her primetime show. “The Rachel Maddow Show” has seen its ratings slide since the conclusion of the Mueller investigation — despite an unprecedented news cycle focused on the coronavirus pandemic, unrest in U.S. cities and the 2020 presidential election. The Maddow slide also comes as millions of potential TV viewers have been largely confined to their homes because of virus-related shutdowns. Late last year, Maddow similarly failed to mention the damning abuses of the highly controversial FISA application process uncovered by Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz in her exclusive sitdown with ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who earlier this year became an MSNBC contributor. Maddow isn’t the only cable news personality to ignore Clinesmith’s guilty plea during primetime. CNN’s Anderson Cooper ignored the major news during his two hours on air. His colleague Don Lemon did the same in the 10 p.m. timeslot. Among the evening broadcast programs, “NBC Nightly News” also skipped the FBI controversy while ABC’s “World News Tonight” and the “CBS Evening News” addressed it.

..barely.  Rachel Maddow is just an obnoxious, self-serving, liberal hack, and a spectacular hypocrite.  And, people are starting to realize just how worthless she is, and are tuning her out.  Some enterprising journalist needs to ask her on camera why she’s avoiding these stories that clearly refute her Russia collusion hoax conspiracies she pushed for years.  Wouldn’t that be delicious?    🙂

Donald Trump Donates Quarterly Salary to Repair National Monuments

President Donald Trump announced Friday that he would donate his salary for this financial quarter to the National Park Service for the restoration of America’s national monuments. The president announced the news on Twitter, together with an image of the $100,000 check. “I promised YOU I would not take a dime of salary as your President. I donate the entire $400,000!” Trump wrote. “It is my honor to give $100,000 to the National Park Service to help repair and restore our GREAT National Monuments,” Trump wrote. “So important to our American History! Thank You!!” Trump is required to be paid the annual $400,000 a year to be the president, but he has pledged to donate his quarterly salary while in office to worthy government causes. In May and in March of 2020, Trump donated his $100,000 quarterly salary to the Department of Health and Human Services to help fight the coronavirus and develop therapies. Throughout the Summer, national monuments were vandalized by leftist rioters until President Trump vowed to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. In July, the president delivered a passionate speech at Mount Rushmore to remind Americans of the importance of protecting monuments. “We will never let them rip America’s heroes from our monuments, or from our hearts,” he said.

Agreed..  Major kudos to President Trump for literally putting his money where his mouth is.  No other President has donated their entire salary like this, and there is no universe in which Joe Biden or Kamala Harris would donate one penny of theirs…and we ALL know it.  Of course you won’t find this story anywhere on CNN, MSNBC, or any other organ of the dominantly liberal mainstream media, as it would undermine their narrative of Trump.

Opinion/Analysis: For Democrats, the Era of American Exceptionalism Is Over

Defunding city police departments. Exploding murder rates. Free health care for illegal aliens. Crushing debt. Obliterating American history. For Democrat politicians, the era of American Exceptionalism is over. Welcome to the land of “Shelter in place!” The fear-mongering and demagoguery are enough to choke a mule. At least it would choke the mule that symbolized the old Democrat Party. Even the Democrat Party of just a few elections ago. These people today? They have gone plumb mad. The patients have taken siege of the asylum. Sen. Mazie Hirono, Hawaii Democrat, stormed out of a committee hearing this week rather than denounce the fascist domestic terrorist group calling itself “Antifa.” The loose-knit, violent mob has been implicated in firebombing police stations and federal buildings, attacking peace officers — including blinding four cops with laser pointers — and violently assaulting innocent citizens. Yet, Democrats such as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler dismiss the mayhem caused by these anti-American terrorists as “a myth.” Despite reels and reels of video evidence. In a public hearing, Mr. Nadler actually blamed the violence on President Trump and Attorney General William Barr. It is all manufactured footage for President Trump’s re-election campaign, he charged. It is literally impossible to take these people seriously. You would not trust them to change a flat tire on your bicycle, let alone run the government. Turns out that enforcing laws, to these people, is the equivalent of tearing down statues and bludgeoning innocent people. And to think: Mr. Nadler is the highest-ranking House Democrat on matters of the judiciary. Ms. Hirono is on the actual committee that chooses federal judges — the very black-robed men and women who mete out life and death decisions for regular, tax-paying citizens of this country. So much for equal justice under law. Or justice in any form other than mob justice. Terrifying. But this is what happens when an entire party is hijacked by fascist mobs that govern by Twitter. They blot out any dissent. First, on “social media.” Then in the streets, where their preferred weapons are brass knuckles, ropes and Molotov cocktails. The only response from Democrat pols in Washington is to condemn law enforcement and accuse police of being the “fascists.” Remember President Obama? Remember 2008? That was a different time. A different campaign. It was hopeful. He at least pretended to love America. He denounced divisions between “red” America and “blue” America. Not that he governed like that. But at least he was wise enough to know he could never get elected peddling any of the crazy nonsense these Democrats today are slopping out. That is why President Obama chose to be Joe Biden’s political protege in the 2008 campaign. But poor Joe Biden today. He is either too dumb or too out of it to realize what his party has become. Again, Barack Obama would NEVER have run on a platform like this. But, forever leading from behind, Mr. Obama endorsed his “first wave” of Democrats running in New York this year. Among those Mr. Obama hilariously “endorsed” is Jamaal Bowman, a socialist community organizer who already beat longtime sitting Democrat Congressman Eliot Engel for the Democrat nomination over three weeks ago. Talk about leading from behind! Among those Mr. Obama did not include in his list of endorsements was sitting Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman member of Congress who is leading her party’s circus off the cliff into the arms of “Antifa.” Maybe Mr. Obama worries that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is too radical for his “brand” of politics. Or maybe he is just jealous.

Eh..  Who cares?  Nobody cares about Barack Obama anymore.  He’s old news and irrelevant.  What IS important is the direction the Democratic Party and its leadership are going down.  That IS important, and very relevant in this election year.  Even more critical are the people who are surrounding Joe Biden….especially if he should (God forbid) win in November.  Thanks to veteran D.C. columnist Charles Hurt for that spot-on analysis.  Charlie can be reached at churt@washingtontimes.com or @charleshurt on Twitter

Trump orders $400-per-week unemployment payments amid COVID crisis, hits Dems for stonewalling

President Trump signed four executive actions Saturday aimed at delivering relief to Americans struggling with the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic while accusing Democrats of stonewalling greater aid efforts. Trump announced a $400-per-week supplemental unemployment payment to out-of-work Americans — short of the $600 weekly benefit that expired at the end of July. He unveiled an extension of student loan relief and protections from evictions for renters and homeowners. Trump also issued a payroll tax holiday through the end of the year for Americans earning less than $100,000, while promising more relief if he wins a second term. The president signed the executive actions from his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., as club members cheered him on. He blamed Democrats for the coronavirus stalemate in Congress and said he’d take matters into his own hands. “Democrats are obstructing all of it,” Trump said. “Therefore, I’m taking executive action … and we’re going to save American jobs and provide relief to the American workers.” For the new $400-per-week benefit, states would be on the hook for funding 25 percent for the millions of jobless Americans, while the federal government would pick up 75 percent of the benefit, Trump said. Asked when the jobless would see the money, Trump said it would be “rapidly distributed.” The $400 boost is more than what many congressional Republicans wanted. Some opposed any extension of the federal aid, while others backed a boost no greater than $200 per week. Meanwhile, Democrats had been fighting for the full $600-per-week extension, which is on top of state unemployment benefits. Click here for more:

Pompeo Expands Clean Network Initiative to Keep Americans’ Data Safe from China

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday announced the State Department is expanding its Clean Network initiative to keep Americans’ data safe from Chinese vendors looking to exploit the data. He said there are five new lines of effort. The first is “Clean Carrier” — working to ensure that untrusted Chinese telecom companies do not provide international telecommunications services between the United States and foreign destinations. “I join Attorney General Barr, [Defense] Secretary Esper, and Acting [Department of Homeland Security] Secretary Wolf in urging the [Federal Communications Commission] to revoke and terminate the authorizations of China Telecom and three other companies providing services to and from the United States,” he said. The second is “Clean Store” — removing untrusted Chinese apps from U.S. app stores. “President Trump has mentioned impending action on TikTok, and for good reason. With parent companies based in China, apps like TikTok, WeChat, and others are significant threats to the personal data of American citizens, not to mention tools for CCP content censorship,” Pompeo said. The third is “Clean Apps” — working to prevent Huawei and other untrusted vendors from pre-installing or making available for download the most popular U.S. apps. “We don’t want companies to be complicit in Huawei’s human rights abuses or the CCP’s surveillance apparatus,” he said. The fourth is “Clean Cloud” — protecting Americans’ most sensitive personal information and American businesses’ most valuable intellectual property — including COVID-19 vaccine research — from being accessed on cloud-based systems run by Chinese companies such as Alibaba, Baidu, China Mobile, China Telecom, and Tencent. “The State Department will work closely with Commerce and other agencies to limit the ability of Chinese cloud service providers to collect, to store, and to process vast amounts of data and sensitive information here in the United States,” he said. The fifth is “Clean Cable” — working to ensure that the CCP cannot compromise information carried by the undersea cables that connect the U.S. and others to the global internet. “Huawei Marine significantly underbids other companies on multiple procurements to connect Asia, the Pacific, Africa, and Europe using Chinese state-backed underseas technology,” he said. “We can’t allow that to continue. We call on all freedom-loving nations and companies to join the Clean Network,” he said.

Kudos to Sec. of State Mike Pompeo and the rest of the Trump Administration doing this for all of us.  Excellent!!      🙂

Ratings Crash for NBA, MLB After Protest-Filled Debuts

As the NBA and MLB return from their coronavirus-imposed hiatus, it appears TV viewers are not interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer. With both baseball and basketball draped in all sorts of Black Lives Matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games, a substantially smaller number of fans tuned-in to the rest of the week’s games. According to Outkick.com, neither league did well. As for the opening games, Outkick reported that the return of the NBA on TNT saw the following numbers: Lakers-Clippers: 3.4 million Pelicans-Jazz: 2.1 million ESPN’s MLB return numbers were also underwhelming: Yankees-Nationals: 4.0 million Dodgers-Giants: 2.8 million Outkick’s Ryan Glasspiegel added more ratings numbers on Twitter. “To be fair since I compared MLB vs NBA return night 1, here is night 2,” (July 24) he wrote, adding: MLB (last Friday, ESPN) Mets-Braves (4p) – 922K Brewers-Cubs(7p) – 1.0M Angels-As (10p) – 797K NBA (last night ESPN) (July 31) Celtics-Bucks (6:30p) – 1.3M Mavs-Rockets (9p)- 1.7M The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss also noted that the numbers continued to fall off for MLB: For good measure, Strauss also pointed out that baseball can’t blame the coronavirus. The virus didn’t stop people from watching Tom Brady golf with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson back in May. Indeed, the charity golf match earned record TV ratings in May. Dubbed “The Match II,” the game featuring Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, Peyton Manning, and Tiger Woods peaked at an amazing 6.3 million viewers and raised more than $20 million for charity.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone.  Remember when the NFL started all this crap with Colin K. and his kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem?  The ratings for NFL games and “NFL Ticket” dropped like crazy as a result.  We documented that, and how many stadiums looked empty after the NFL allowed that crap to continue.  Now, in the Wuhan virus era when we can’t even physically go to games (and therefore that revenue for professional sports is not there), the NFL and MLB are seeing a similar effect…but it’s even worse because they’re playing in empty stadiums.  So, we see these whiny, self-serving, self-righteous, spoiled-brat, entitlement-minded, millionaire athletes doing this kneeling crap and wearing social justice clothing…and Americans are over it.  They’ve had it.  So, they’re just changing the channel.  What these obnoxious athletes and their coaches aren’t getting…..is that we just want to watch our sports without politics being rubbed in our faces.  If they want to protest, or speak their minds about BLM, or how oppressed they feel living in America and all…then they need to do that on THEIR time; NOT ours.  Sports used to be that one time where we could all go (regardless of political party affiliation or beliefs) and take a break from politics and just have a beer, a hotdog, and watch a ballgame and have a good time.  Not anymore.  These professional sports organizations, pandering to the liberal mobs out there, feel they have to rub their politically correct social justice politics in our faces whether we want to hear it or not.  And THAT is why more and more Americans are saying to heck with that, and changing the channel.

Gutfeld on Biden ducking the debates

Former Bill Clinton spokesman and sputtering wackadoodle Joe Lockhart, frantically suggests that under no circumstances should Joe Biden debate Donald Trump. You’re thinking that must be a gag. No. According to Lockhart, Trump tells so many lies it’s pointless for Biden to “enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth.” But we know what he’s really saying, right? The moment Biden faces off with Trump, and the cognition starts malfunctioning, he’s dust. Which is really why, Lockhart admits, “Biden can lose the election.” He’s just creating a phony reason, hoping no one notices. We did. He’s helping the campaign create a fake moral loophole for Biden to worm his way out of so he won’t tank in public. “Oh, we certainly can’t debate Trump. He fibs. And wears hair plugs.” Oh, wait…that’s Joe. But, if that’s the standard for all candidates, we’d never have another debate ever. The Democratic Party would be as thin as I am. (And only half as handsome.) But also — wouldn’t you want to debate a liar? Because you could come armed with facts and kick the liar’s butt. And clearly, if Joe can’t handle a debate, how can he handle being president? Wouldn’t this feeble act disquailfy him from the office? It makes you wonder if he really is the actual candidate at all. You can see Lockhart didn’t think this through. Which is why he writes for CNN. And it says something that a media company, one that should champion transparency and so on, would push to suppress a public forum to evaluate the candidates in real-time. It must be cool to have friends in high places — or at CNN, low places, too.

As usual, Greg Gutfeld nails it here.  The Dems desperately don’t want crazy ol’ Joe to debate Trump because they know he’ll get demolished.  And, Trump won’t be nice or gentlemanly, or give deference to Joe’s mental decline.  Trump will go in there with a baseball bat and beat Joe down….and it’ll be brutal..and we all know it.  THAT is why the Dems don’t want Joe to debate Trump.  Thanks Greg!  That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on August 3, 2020.       🙂

Mollie Hemingway examines Biden’s ‘bizarre’ false arrest claims, says they’re part of ‘track record of lying’

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a “bizarre” habit of bragging about arrests that never happened, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday. “He’s dreamed of it and thought of it a great deal,” Hemingway, senior editor of The Federalist, told host Tucker Carlson. “And he’s had a lifetime of storytelling. I mean, I don’t think he’s the only politician out there to exaggerate or tell stories but he really is notable for this, and it was something that caused problems for him the first time he ran for president [in 1988] when that candidacy was derailed by his lies, his plagiarism.” In March, Biden was forced to walk back his claim that he was arrested in apartheid-era South Africa three decades ago when trying to visit Nelson Mandela. The claim was just the latest in the former vice president’s string of falsehoods, Hemingway said. “He adopted a fake persona of a British politician [Neil Kinnock]. He had lied extensively about his academic record,” she said. “He has lied about the circumstances of his family’s fatal [1972] car wreck that his [first wife, sons and daughter were] in. He lied about whether the person who was involved in that was responsible or whether he was drunk. “He really has a long track record of lying for personal benefit,” Hemingway argued, “and if we had a media that was even remotely careful, they would be talking about this and they would’ve probably presented these issues to Democratic voters before they chose him in their primary.” In 2008, Biden claimed he was arrested while an undergraduate student at the University of Delaware when he accidentally wandered into a women’s dormitory during a trip to Ohio University. In 2012. Biden clarified his statement, saying that while he wasn’t quite arrested, he “almost” was. “It is interesting and bizarre,” Hemingway said. “One other thing that’s interesting is … he was a really good storyteller,” she added. “They weren’t true stories but they were interesting to listen to. Now, when you see him struggling to even respond to these previous falsehoods, he’s really having trouble doing it and it’s a very interesting to compare, even from 2008 to the current year, what a difference it is and how he is able to tell stories.”

Joe is struggling because he’s too old, and frankly senile, to remember what lies he told who.  So, that’s a big part of it.  Joe’s history of “storytelling” and lies is extensive, and well documented.  That coupled with his history of being spectacularly wrong about virtually every foreign policy issue in the last 40 years, and that oughtta be enough to disqualify him.  But, now with his painfully obvious mental decline…  I mean c’mon…  Let’s all be honest.  If anyone of us paraded our grandparents with similar mental decline out there in front of the tv cameras, and told them they had to debate on national tv, we’d be accused of elderly abuse.  How is it that the media isn’t addressing that?  Simple.  They’re supporting Joe no matter what.  Getting rid of Trump is of biblical importance to the dishonest liberal mainstream media.
