Joe Biden’s campaign spokeswoman could barely contain her glee at the news that Steve Bannon is being indicted by the Southern District of New York on a variety of fraud allegations related to fundraising for “We Build the Wall,” telling USA Today that “no one needed an indictment to know that Steve Bannon is a fraud.” But a close reading of the indictment shows that the politicization of the DOJ by elements of the radical left has been its own long-running fraud.
garden drives Democrats mad 10 replies
In 1964, Joanne Greenberg published a semi-autobiographical novel, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden, about her stay in an insane asylum. Almost 60 years later, American leftists have once again brought together the concept of rose gardens and insanity. In this modern iteration, the insanity trigger is First Lady Melania Trump’s rose garden renovation (using privately donated funds). (snip) because Melania made the changes, the press and fellow travelers offered up hysteria, ignorance, and xenophobia. They were lost to all reason.
announces his surprise endorsement 6 replies
One of the most revolting things about Joe Biden’s candidacy is his dishonest insistence that Donald Trump called white supremacists “fine people.” Democrats have successfully used this hoax to brainwash large parts of the American public into believing that Trump and his supporters are racists and anti-Semites. One wonders, therefore, how much consternation there is in Biden campaign headquarters now that Richard Spencer, one of America’s best-known neo-Nazis, is all in for Biden. To fully appreciate what should be one of the biggest stories in the presidential campaign, there are two things you need to know
It started one ordinary day, in one otherwise ordinary session: A beautiful young woman I had known for a few years wanted to cut off her breasts. (snip) So I told her. She had a long history of abuse, abandonment, and self-mutilation. Given that, I suggested, didn’t it seem like another aspect of self-hatred and rage? (snip) I urged her to take time to really consider all the ramifications (snip) For weeks afterward I found myself fighting off fears of being reported to the licensing board for not agreeing with her and realized, finally, that the whole profession had become a political platform.
Barack Obama’s speech at the DNC’s misbegotten cyber-convention worked only for those Americans, including most in the media, who paid no serious attention to the eight years of Obama’s presidency. (snip) What follows are some of the riffs that I, and likely they, found most entertaining. Obama began by telling us the Constitution “wasn’t a perfect document,” implying that he would have done better had he been there. (snip) Here was one of my favorite Obama lines: “Joe knows the world, and the world knows him.” No one denies that, especially not the Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs.
the Dems’ African American base? 15 replies
[Disclaimer: the author makes no pretense of speaking for African Americans. All who believe that racial heritage dictates the parameters of acceptable speech are cautioned to read no further. Any triggering that results from continuing beyond this point is solely the responsibility of the reader.] Does anyone believe that if she were white, Kamala Harris would have been chosen as Joe Biden’s veep? (snip) Kamala Harris, daughter of Tamil and Jamaican immigrants, was deemed by Biden’s handlers to be acceptably melanin-rich. After all, Barack Obama was also biracial and passed muster
political triumph to Trump 17 replies
In terms of the reality TV show of the presidential campaign, Goodyear has caved-in to Donald Trump’s pressure and affirmed its support for law enforcement, handing a potent symbolic victory to his reelection effort. The now-notorious Topeka “zero tolerance” slide framed a simple tale of PC bullies taking over a corporation and terrorizing the employees into verbal conformity, silently hewing to the party line with all the enthusiasm of a 1986 East German. Donald Trump, the champion of the liberty of the ordinary American, fought back

The digital Democratic National Convention kicked off this week with a pre-recorded video of “America’s most impactful community leaders” reading the preamble to America’s Constitution. The various participants, mostly Democratic politicians and party activists, might be alarmed to learn that their segment featured Donna Hylton, a 55-year-old Jamaican woman convicted for the kidnapping, rape, torture, and murder of a 62-year-old Long Island real estate broker in 1986. (snip) Just yesterday, reporters bristled after President Trump refused to disavow Qanon, an online conspiracy group suggesting that the Democratic party shields rapists and pedophiles for political purposes.

a Natural Born Citizen 26 replies
If the media were to ask President Trump, “Are you a natural born citizen?,” he would probably respond with, “My father, an American citizen, Fred Trump, was born in New York City, and my mother, Mary Anne, was born in Scotland and became a naturalized American citizen in March 1942.(snip) If you listened to the media, you would think there is no definition anywhere of “natural born citizen.” The media assert that the clause “natural born citizen” isn’t defined anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. But the media hide the fact that “natural born citizen” was specifically defined in the Naturalization Act of 1790.
dishonest, and mostly about Obama 44 replies
Michelle Obama famously said, “When they go low, we go high.” She should have reminded her husband before he gave his speech for the online Democrat convention. Standing in a room in Philadelphia, with the words “Writing the Constitution” over his right shoulder, Obama gave a speech that almost wholly ignored Biden, whom he’d ostensibly come to praise. Instead, Obama viciously attacked Trump and did a constitutional rewrite that allowed him to cast Trump as a constitutional threat. From the start, Obama was up to his old tricks. Even while he wanted to use the Constitution to challenge Trump, he couldn’t praise it.
among the Poor 30 replies
In a recent OpEd from The Guardian, author Larry Elliot opines on the frequency of obesity among low-income households in the U.K., and points out that the problem “in the U.S. mirrors that of the U.K.” Elliot goes on to proclaim, that, “there will be less obesity when people can afford to eat better.” The premise is that poor folks are victims of one injustice or another; in Elliot’s case, he claims they are unable to afford healthy food. This notion has been floating around for several years now, particularly as it relates to children, and is one that is frequently parroted by the left in America.

anti-Semite Tuesday night 6 replies
Forget the happy talk of the mainstream media. The Democrats are a coalition of mutually antagonistic factions, united only by their hatred of President Donald Trump. They couldn’t even keep a lid on the conflict between the dominant radicals and the pseudo-moderates propping up senescent Joe Biden as a putative centrist. Don’t look for the mainstream media to mention this, but the Biden campaign actually disavowed one of the speakers during last night’s Democratic National Convention internet TV show, Linda Sarsour and she is muttering about retaliation at the polls.
