Mandate: ‘I’m a Constitutionalist’ 33 replies
Joe Biden backed off his proposed national mask mandate on Wednesday and now says he would “put pressure” on states, local units of government, and businesses to require them. “No, no,” he said, denying he ever proposed such a thing, before claiming he would “ask every person in authority” to impose one. “I’m a constitutionalist,” Biden declared. “You can’t do things the Constitution does allow you the power to do.” Watch: [Video] Instead, he said he would “put as much pressure as I could” on others to impose his demands. “What you’re doing is irresponsible,” he said he would tell them. “Make sure you wear a mask and maintain social distancing.”
Capt. David Dorn on Helmet 3 replies
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert will wear the name of murdered St. Louis police Captain David Dorn on his helmet, according to a report. The announcement was made by Alex Triantafilou, the chairman of the Hamilton County, Ohio, Republican Party. [Tweet] The NFL announced in July that players would be allowed to wear slogans, or names of victims on their helmets as the NFL’s 2020 season kicks off. Eifert is one of the small handful of NFL players who has dared express patriotic feelings about the United States. Back in 2016, when protesting the country during the national anthem swept the NFL,

On Monday, the Democrat party released Joe Biden from the basement, hustled him up to Pittsburgh, had him read a Teleprompter, waved farewell to journalists who weren’t allowed to speak, and tucked him up again in his basement bed. The speech that Biden read was, quite possibly, the most dishonest speech ever given during an American political campaign. A conservative Christian website put together a video pushing back against Biden’s lies, and that video has rightly gone viral. Just to recap, on May 25, 2020, police officers in Minneapolis caught up with George Floyd, whom a storekeeper had accused of passing counterfeit bills.
On Monday, Joe Biden looked at the camera and said something like this: “Do I look like a guy who supports lawlessness”? Frankly, he doesn’t. What he looks like is: a man who has said nothing since the riots started and then suddenly decided to talk about because the polls are changing. Some in the media are claiming that this is “Joe’s Sister Whatever” moment. He finally stood up to the violent mob or something like that. In fact, Biden looked awful, as Eddie Scarry wrote: After three months of violence, vandalism, and arson in our biggest cities, all of it excused and encouraged by Democrats,

Emboldened by the lack of consequences, the political left in this country has escalated from yelling at people in restaurants to physical assaults, property destruction, and even murder. Senator Rand Paul’s account of the harrowing events of the leftist mob following the last night of the Republican convention serves as another reminder for Americans to consider their personal safety. Self-defense is often an uncomfortable topic for many. A friend recently asked what he should do in circumstances where he and his wife are accosted in public. Setting aside the grief that this is even a topic in our country,

took teen daughter to protests 7 replies
The Antifa security guard reportedly being probed in connection with the deadly shooting of a President Trump supporter in Portland was photographed at a rally the night before — alongside his baseball bat-wielding teenage daughter. Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was pictured late Friday at a Black Lives Matter protest outside the condominium building that is home to the Oregon city’s mayor, Ted Wheeler, The Oregonian said. He caught the attention of a photographer because he was there with his 16-year-old daughter, who stood beside him carrying a dark baseball bat, the paper noted. The former military man — who says he is “100% ANTIFA” —
power to force Don McGahn testimony 6 replies
Some House Democrats are looking to switch tactics after a federal appeals court shot down their lawsuit to enforce a subpoena against former White House counsel Don McGahn, suggesting invoking the rarely used “inherent competent” power of Congress, according to a report. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the ruling by a three-judge panel on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals “a challenge to our system of checks and balances” and said the Democrats would seek a hearing with the full appeals court. But some Democrats want to invoke the “inherent contempt” power that allows the House to enforce subpoenas
eve of Mass. primary fight 9 replies
Welcome to Camalot. A scion of the Kennedy family running for US Senate in Massachusetts is getting mocked for a campaign ad that committed a cardinal sin — misspelling the name of a prominent city two days before his primary election. The Rep. Joe Kennedy III Sunday newspaper ad financed by Local 103 IBEW union said the Democratic candidate seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Ed Markey in Tuesday’s Democratic primary is “For Worchester.” One problem. It’s the City of Worcester — without the “h.” Even more embarrassing is that the goof ran in an ad that was placed in Sunday’s Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
President Donald Trump Had a Stroke 11 replies
The White House physician issued a statement to reporters on Tuesday refuting the notion that President Donald Trump had a stroke. The president’s physician Dr. Sean Conley issued a statement to reporters confirming that Trump had not experienced or been evaluated for a stroke or a mini-stroke or “any acute cardiovascular emergencies.” “The president remains healthy and I have no concerns about his ability to maintain the rigorous schedule ahead of him,” Conley wrote. “As stated in my last report, I expect him to remain fit to execute the duties of the presidency.” Trump has faced a number of stories speculating on his physical and mental health throughout his presidency,

The twisted logic of author Vicky Osterweil’s new book, In Defense of Looting, would be laughable were it not so dangerous. Yet it is being taken seriously by NPR and other media outlets that should know better. In her interview with NPR featuring no pushback from the taxpayer-funded network’s interviewer, Osterweil says of looting: “You’re mass shoplifting. Most stores are insured; it’s just hurting insurance companies on some level. It’s just money. It’s just property. It’s not actually hurting any people.” Nobody gets hurt. At least, nobody Ms. Osterweil cares about. Like the shop-owners with no insurance because they can’t afford it.
