21% Lower Ratings Than Clinton in 2016 0 replies
Former Vice President Joe Biden accepted the Democrat presidential nomination Thursday, but his speech drew fewer viewers than Hillary Clinton did in 2016, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research. The Hill reports: Biden’s speech was watched by 21.8 million people on TV, according to initial figures from Nielsen, beating out the early numbers for other major speeches at the convention earlier in the week. The figure, which does not include online streaming of the speech, is expected to grow when additional networks are added. […] Still, the initial numbers mark a 21 percent drop from Clinton’s speech at the convention in 2016 when she accepted the Democratic nomination that year.
Charged with Voter Fraud 0 replies
A judge ordered a do-over election held in November for a city council seat in Paterson, New Jersey, due to the apparent winner and a sitting councilman being charged with voter fraud. State Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela issued the ruling on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press (AP). “It was the right ruling. That past election was fraught with fraud,” Mayor Andre Sayegh remarked, according to CNN. “The City will comply with the judge’s decision and we created the Mayor’s Election Awareness Team to preserve the value of the vote in Paterson,” he noted.
Everyone knows it: the death of George Floyd was just a pretext. The rioters who continue every night to wreak havoc in Portland, and who are poised to engage in new orgies of destruction all over the country don’t know much and care less about Floyd. They’re quite open about engaging in a “revolution” with the goal of destroying the existing order and replacing it with an authoritarian Marxist regime. But what we are seeing today is not new. Its seeds were planted decades ago. Now the question before us, if we want to preserve the United States as a free society,

If a person or entity has proven to be abusive or irresponsible with power, then it is the duty of the people, while freedom still prevails, to resist and to ensure that such a person or entity is never entrusted with such power ever again or, at least until they have regained the confidence of the people. Such is the case with today’s Democrat party. Americans have given their lives and blood to liberate people from fascism and Marxism/communism. But now it is unassailable that those oppressive political philosophies now have their home in the Democrat Party. In six months, with the pandemic and nationwide riots,
vapid and disgraceful 3 replies
A weary-sounding Joe Biden, who periodically managed to flog himself into a weak and shrill rage, delivered a singularly awful acceptance speech. When it wasn’t hackneyed, he plagiarized ideas and policies from President Trump and made boasts that were inconsistent with his 48 years in politics, whether as a senator or a vice president. The worst thing about it, though, was that he repeated a vicious, and unforgivable, slander about Trump. Here’s a short list of Biden’s platitudes: Trump is darkness. I am light. FDR was a great president. Help young people by ending Trump’s darkness. America is racist. More darkness, more light.

On Tuesday, President Trump did something that ought to have gladdened feminist hearts throughout the land: he pardoned Susan B. Anthony, who was convicted of voting illegally in the 1872 presidential election. As first- and second-generation feminists know, Anthony was one of the colossi of the suffrage movement in the United States, spending five decades working to get American women the right to vote. Sadly, she didn’t live to see the 19th Amendment pass, having died 14 years before. In addition to being a Suffragette, Anthony was a classical liberal in other ways. At the height of the Civil War, she and her colleague, Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
vote in person’ 11 replies
President Trump on Wednesday pointed to the protests going on around the country calling for racial justice and police reform as a reason why Americans should have to go to the polls in person this November to vote. “IF YOU CAN PROTEST IN PERSON, YOU CAN VOTE IN PERSON!,” Trump wrote on Twitter in all caps. The president has warned that allowing large-scale voting by mail, as many states are opting to do this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, would result in rampant fraud and a rigged election. Speaking at the White House on Tuesday, Trump predicted that “universal voting is going to be a disaster.”
sell $2,700 sweater to undercover cops 13 replies
Undercover cops busted a suspected looter in Chicago, after he tried to sell them a $2,700 designer sweater, according to a report. Melvin Banks, 29, advertised the Brunello Cucinelli swag for sale online, which was seen by a staffer at the Italian luxury brand’s looted Windy City store, prosecutors said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Banks was arrested after undercover cops arranged to pay $800 for the stolen item — one that clearly impressed the judge at his first court hearing Wednesday, the paper noted. “I don’t know how a $2,000 sweater feels, but it must be immaculate,” Cook County Judge John Lyke Jr. told the hearing, according to the report.

Deranged Bigots?’ 26 replies
Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” anchor Jake Tapper asked former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) if it was “possible that the Republican Party is now the party of deranged bigots.” Tapper asked, “In the last week or so, you were talking about the future of the Republican Party, if Trump wins or if he doesn’t. In the last week or so, two completely unhinged conspiracy theorists, both of them complete bigots as well, have won Republican congressional nominations, Marjorie Taylor Greene in Georgia in a Republican district and Laura Loomer in Florida in a district that leans Democratic.” “President Trump has praised both of them,
Dangerous and Inexcusable 3 replies
When science is being characterized as “right-wing” because it doesn’t fit the Democrats’ and the media’s preferred COVID-19 narrative, we are living in a dangerous world. The mental and physical health of millions of Americans is on the line, and the media wants to play politics with what kind of information you can read. Take the case of Dr. James Todaro. He was a member of America’s Frontline Doctors, the group that went to Washington, D.C., to try and cut through the panic porn being pushed by the media. After sharing their experience with early outpatient treatment with HCQ, zinc, and azithromycin,
Neck of American Democracy’ 24 replies
Ever since the police killing of George Floyd, Democrats have attempted to blame the Republicans and President Donald Trump of somehow abetting police brutality in general or Derek Chauvin, the police officer who put his knee on the neck of George Floyd, in particular. On Monday, former Vice President Al Gore took it one step further. He accused Trump of doing to “democracy” what Chauvin did to George Floyd. This seemed more than a little ironic, given Gore’s own history with military ballots from overseas. Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Gore said, “Americans understand, Anderson, that during a pandemic, there are lots of older voters
‘Professional Kidnapper’ T-Shirts 7 replies
The Prescott Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) is down to only one child-abuse investigator after having to fire at least eight others for wearing t-shirts that say “Professional Kidnapper” on them and posting the photos on Facebook. The terminated child-welfare employees had these shirts made up with the phrase “Do you know where your children are?” in bright pink as a “joke” that no one who has battled DCS for custody of their children thought was funny. The agency has not released the exact number of investigators who were fired—news reports say “multiple” individuals were canned.
