The results from The Epoch Times’ Rust Belt Poll released on Sunday provide one more reason why the president is likely to repeat his 2016 miracle in Pennsylvania, where he won by 44,000 votes out of 6.2 million cast: A plurality of the 3,500-plus registered and likely voters polled last week in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, and especially Pennsylvania support fracking.
If the 2020 presidential campaign proves anything, it proves that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden again fibbed about his past yesterday, and the fib was the same one that helped wreck his run for the White House in 1987. Biden falsely said he was the first person in his family to attend college.
Perhaps Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s new campaign slogan should be Silence is Golden. The New York Post reported on Tuesday that President Trump has answered almost 900 more questions than Biden in the last two months. Even worse, or better if you’re Biden and his media protectorate, the Democrat went dark for more than a week in late July and early August. No questions, no answers.
The Mayo Clinic defines “sundowning” as “a state of confusion occurring in the late afternoon and spanning into the night. Sundowning can cause a variety of behaviors, such as confusion, anxiety, aggression or ignoring directions ... [it is] a group of symptoms that occur at a specific time of the day that may affect people with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease.”
The horrific point-blank shooting of two Los Angeles County deputy sheriffs Saturday night in Compton, California, by a man with a handgun, has drawn various responses. President Donald Trump called for the death penalty for the perpetrator, while some protesters outside the Los Angeles-area hospital in Lynwood where the deputies were transported shouted, “We hope they die.”
In this episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman exposes the fact that presidential candidate Joe Biden has ripped off the United Nations "Build Back Better" slogan for his own campaign to advance Deep State objectives. This campaign would expand government, spend trillions on unconstitutional programs, and surrender even more U.S. sovereignty. Biden stole it from the UN, without giving credit, even as politicians around the world parrot the same agenda. But remember, if you aren't voting for Biden, "you ain't black!"
Conservative political commentator Candace Owens said that a pervasive feeling of “white guilt” is much more damaging to the black community and America as a whole than the non-existent “systemic racism” that Black Lives Matter, every professional sports league, and the Democrat Party are complaining about. Owens made the remarks on the Daily Wire’s The Ben Shapiro Show: Sunday Special this weekend.
A Wisconsin priest who called on Catholic Democrats to revoke their support for the party or “face the fires of Hell” was backed up by a Texas Bishop. Father James Altman, who pastors St. James the Less Catholic Church in La Crosse, Wisconsin, began by condemning Father James Martin over his participation in the DNC.
Fox News blamed CNN. CNN blamed the Biden campaign. The Biden campaign has not answered a media inquiry. It doesn’t much matter. As Marxist revolutionaries have adopted the communist tactic of terror and set American cities aflame, Biden’s campaign has adopted another: airbrushing photos to remove “offensive” signs of the past.
Patrick Yoes, president of the 350,000-member Fraternal Order of Police, the nation’s largest police union, said on September 5 that his organization’s members have endorsed President Trump for reelection because of the president’s strong call for law and order. Yoes announced his union’s support of Trump in an interview with Neil Cavuto on the Fox News Cavuto Live program, the day after the union officially made the announcement.
With tacit Democrat encouragement of rioting, calls to dismantle the police, and advocacy of free healthcare for illegals, it’s easy to forget radical leftist proposals lurking in the background — ones more likely to become law if Democrats win the November election. Exhibit A is a bill that would put men “in women’s bathrooms, boys in girls’ sports, and worst of all,” would forbid parents “from blocking ‘sex-reassignment surgery’ for their minor children,” as the Washington Examiner puts it.
Billed as a nonpartisan television program by ABC-TV, set to air on Monday, September 14, “VOMO: Vote or Miss Out,” is really a thinly disguised promotion by that network to get more votes out for Democratic Party candidates in November, particularly Joe Biden. In reality, it is a multimillion-dollar campaign contribution for the Biden for President campaign, although, of course, it will not be recorded as such on any Federal Election Commission report.
The Transition Integrity Project, an organization with ties to George Soros’ Open Society Foundations and to the Chinese Communist Party-linked think tank The Berggruen Institute, has outlined several tactics the Left and Deep State plan to use to secure a Biden victory in the 2020 presidential election, including mail-in voting, suppression of speech via social-media censorship, and “mass mobilization” (read: riots) on America’s streets.
On Thursday, the Washington Post ran an article written by Georgetown professor Rosa Brooks that presented the frightening conclusion that the only safe outcome for America in this year's presidential election is a Joe Biden landslide victory. The story read like a veiled threat to Americans who might be persuaded to vote Trump in November.
During an interview with Fox News Rundown podcast host Jessica Rosenthal on September 2, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) talked about the epidemic of riots and mayhem spreading across America, the role of Black Lives Matter in fomenting those riots, and the failure of Joe Biden to denounce those creating the civil unrest.
Since the 2000 contest between George Bush, Jr. and Al Gore, American elections have become increasingly bitter winner-take-all slugfests, with this year's looking to rival Abraham Lincoln's. Both Democrats and Republicans are preparing for it by recruiting lawyers on a previously unimaginable level.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported last week that from January through July more than 12 million background checks for the purchase of firearms were processed, an increase of 71 percent from the same period a year earlier. “That equates,” said the group, “to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020.”
The liberal Washington Post saw what was coming and warned its mostly Democrat readers last Thursday not to expect much of a bounce in the polls for the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee Joe Biden. Journalist Karen Tumulty provided some excuses: “It won’t be surprising if the polls don’t show a “bounce” from a four-night political event.… The nightly audiences were smaller than they have been for recent party conventions. And those had been losing viewers over the decades since they have lost their suspense and [have instead] turned into infomercials.”
If adopted, the 2020 Democratic Party platform would be the most vigorous attack on the Second Amendment by a major political party in our nation’s history. And in selecting Kamala Harris as his running mate, Joe Biden confirmed that failed Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s boast that “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47” was not an idle threat. The platform lays out a roadmap for subverting our gun rights by creating federal laws and using federal money to bribe the states into invading private matters.
It won’t make a bit of difference, but for the record it’s worth reporting that Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was again caught stealing another politician’s words. This time, Canada’s National Post reported, Biden tried to pull a daylight heist from the late Canadian politician Jack Layton.
So let’s continue on the thread about the attempted #Communist Take Over happening right now in America. Enter #JoeBiden's new Vice President pick #KamalaHarris. Who is she really and what is her background? Is she another huge step towards subverting America to be a Communist Nation? Check out this video from #TrevorLouden on The New American with Christian Gomez. The New American, are the original anti-communist fighters in this country. They have charted, watched & reported on the Communist #infiltration in our Schools, businesses, and governments and have been warning us for decades of this coming conflict.
Politicians are renowned for their shortsightedness. During the post-war period, for example, Republicans have very publicly opposed most tax increases. I like small government, so I’m good with that. Where I part ways with the Grand Old Party is with its failure to oppose big spending that’s funded with debt, meaning future tax hikes.
Much of the public knows it, many foreign leaders know it, and Democrat insiders know it but dare not say it publicly: Joe Biden cannot function as president. And now chief White House doctor to ex-president Barack Obama has essentially said as much, stating that the presumptive Democratic nominee is “just lost.”
The message is simple: If you’re going to play the identity politics game, you’d better at least do it right. That’s the takeaway with a new Rasmussen poll showing that black voters are rejecting Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick, Senator Kamala Harris, who was chosen precisely because she’s female and “of color.”
When Joe Biden tweeted that choosing Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate gave hope to “black and brown girls” that they too might be president, no one thought much of it. But when a cartoonist in Australia used the tweet to ridicule Biden for yet another racially insensitive gaffe, the usual Twitter mob declared the artist and his drawing racist, along with the newspaper that published it, The Australian.
Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden must not have run his vice-presidential pick, Senator Kamala Harris, by Black Lives Matter. If he had, the Marxist outfit might well have nixed her and ordered Biden to pick Karen Bass, the hard-left sympathizer who supported communist mass-murderer Fidel Castro and worked for the Venceremos Brigade, a front for Cuban intelligence.
During an interview Thursday with CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett, who is black, Joe Biden was asked if he had taken a cognitive test. Biden fired back: “No, I haven’t taken a test! Why … would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying you, before you got on this program, you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?”
Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden unbosomed himself of another laugher yesterday during a rap session with two journalism outfits whose membership is based on race. Speaking during an interview with the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanics Journalists, Biden told his interlocutor, in so many words, that blacks are all alike and can’t really think for themselves. But Hispanics, he said, hold myriad opinions and aren’t all alike.
Question: Could a former member of the Ku Klux Klan turned conventional conservative Republican ever get close to becoming the vice presidential nominee of his party? It isn’t just unlikely. It’s unthinkable. But Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden might well pick as his running mate Representative Karen Bass (D-Calif.), who praised Fidel Castro and joined a communist front controlled by Cuban intelligence operatives
More than 100 Wisconsin police agencies have backed out of security agreements to assist the Milwaukee police with crowd control at the Democratic National Convention scheduled for August 17-20. The main reason for the pull-out seems to be a directive issued by the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission that the city no longer use tear gas to control unruly crowds.
Joe Biden. This is what a “moderate” Democrat looks like? Really? Well, considering the craziness of the Democratic primaries with a lineup that included Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker, Biden may seem moderate by comparison. And that, of course, is the whole point of the media narrative in attempting to sell Joe Biden as a “centrist,” “Moderate,” “conservative” Democrat to Middle American voters. However, aside from Biden’s long public record of supporting far-left positions on political, social, economic, and moral issues, his list of current endorsers speaks volumes about the agenda we could expect from a Biden presidency. Consider this very abbreviated list of endorsers:
Just one day after presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said, “I am not committed to naming any but the people I’ve named, and among them are four black women,” Politico reported that he’d already made up his mind. Yesterday Politico announced, Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to become his running mate for the 2020 election on Aug. 1, two weeks before the Democratic National Convention, after keeping his choice close to the chest for months.
In speaking with reporters on a call on Friday, President Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien said he’s confident the president will not only keep the states he won by the narrowest of margins in 2016, but will also win other states he lost by narrow margins to Clinton. Thus he expects Trump’s win in the Electoral College to exceed the 304 votes he received in 2016.
A poll taken by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News earlier this month revealed that Independent voters are moving toward the president 100 days before the election on November 3. Fifty percent of the 900 registered voters polled between July 9 and 12 said there was no chance they’d be voting for President Trump, while 37 percent said there was no chance they’d be voting for presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Well, it’s obvious who the despotic Chinese government wants as our next president, and his initials are not D.J.T. Joe Biden is their man, a reality made clear by a China Global Television Network propaganda video essentially stating that the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic can be used to defeat President Trump.
Speaking on the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday afternoon, President Trump celebrated his administration’s success in rolling back regulations that were stifling the economy under the previous administration: Before I came into office, American workers were smothered by a merciless avalanche of wasteful and expensive and intrusive federal regulations.
In an apparent attempt to avoid a confrontation with President Donald Trump, or lawsuits in court, Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced a new order that effectively bans the Confederate “battle flag,” without specifically naming it, but leaves — at least for now — the issue of military posts named after Confederate generals alone.
When Scott Rasmussen tried to explain the reasons behind Trump’s sudden jump in the polls among male voters, he suggested it was “a positive response … to the president’s speech at Mount Rushmore ….[with] many Republicans consider[ing] it a strong appeal to unity. The new numbers may also be partly in response … to media criticism of the president.”
It’s good to be a Biden. The Biden family has a long history of runs-ins with the law, from drug possession to drunk driving to theft, yet none of those involved have ever done jail time, according to a review of public records by the New York Post. The former vice president’s brother, Frank Biden, was caught driving under the influence in Fort Lauderdale in 2003, but got off with six months of probation.
The “Unity Task Force” convened by presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden and former campaign rival Bernie Sanders has produced their recommendations on how the United States should tackle the so-called “climate emergency.” And it’s every bit as extreme as you would expect when you consider that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was one of the chairs of the committee.
In a wide-ranging interview with Forbes released on Wednesday, music mogul Kanye West had strong words for the Democrat Party. West suggested that the party, and in particular presumptive nominee Joe Biden, are guilty of emotionally blackmailing him and other Blacks into voting Democrat. On July 4, West announced on Twitter that he was running for president as a third-party candidate on the new “Birthday Party” ticket.
“If Joe Biden is elected, he will surrender your country to the mob,” President Donald Trump told an enthusiastic crowd inside Tulsa’s Bank of Oklahoma Center Saturday night, indicating that Trump intends to make Biden either repudiate the violence that has enveloped America’s cities, from Seattle to New York City, or embrace it.
Pollster Zogby Analytics asked more than a thousand likely voters earlier this month if they thought it was likely that presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was suffering from the early stages of dementia. The results: “A majority (55%) of likely voters surveyed thought it was more likely … that Vice President Biden is in the early stages of dementia.”
Who fact-checks the fact-checkers? After one its stories was dubiously slapped with a “partly false” rating from Facebook fact-checking partner Lead Stories, The National Pulse dug into the platform’s staff and found that many, including the top brass, are Democratic Party donors and former CNN employees.
A conspiracy theory the leftist media have been simmering on the back burner this year is that President Trump, should he lose the White House on November 3, will refuse to leave office. Every few weeks they turn up the heat and bring it to a boil, the latest example being Dexter Filkins’ offering in The New Yorker. Top military people, Filkins avers, are terrified that Trump is planning a dictatorship and will use the military to establish it.
Following the remarkably robust and surprising jobs report released last Friday, President Trump’s reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale announced that his political rallies would resume: Americans are ready to get back to action, and so is President Trump. The great American comeback is real and the rallies will be tremendous. You’ll again see the kind of crowds and enthusiasm that sleepy Joe Biden can only dream of.
A persistent myth percolating this election season is that former Vice President Joe Biden, the probable nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States this year, is some sort of “moderate.” This centrist image is being cultivated by the media, as a way of contrast to President Donald Trump’s supposed “right-wing extremist” image, and the looney Left in Biden’s own Democratic Party — those such as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, or Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is now promoting the absurd idea that President Trump is using the Chinese Virus to promote anger and hatred against Asians. Speaking at an openly racialist event, Biden, who faces a credible sexual-assault allegation from a former staff member, claimed Trump’s response to the Asiatic pathogen has been “nakedly xenophobic.” Biden’s proof?
Lawrence O’Donnell, host of MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, asked Joe Biden last Thursday, “What do you say to women who were ready to vote for Joe Biden, eager to vote for Joe Biden, but this [sexual assault charge] gives them serious pause because they do believe Tara Reade.… what would you say to them about that?” Biden answered: “If they believe Tara Reade, the probably shouldn’t vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
Yet another host on leftist MSNBC asked Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden about Tara Reade’s sexual-assault allegation and Biden again denied it. But he also told the network’s Lawrence O’Donnell that he didn’t remember Reade, and that if someone believed her, they shouldn’t vote for him. He wouldn’t vote for himself if he believed Reade.
Former Georgia statehouse leader Stacey Abrams has been actively lobbying to become presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden's pick for his vice presidential running mate in 2020. According to at least one Biden campaign insider, she shouldn't waste any more time, as she's not considered a serious candidate for the job.
Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal, who once led American forces in Afghanistan, is serving as an advisor to a Democratic Party-supporting political action committee in its plans to disrupt the social-media support for President Donald Trump in the upcoming election. The group is called Defeat Disinfo, and it will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to follow discussion of Trump’s public statements and refute online efforts by Trump supporters to defend what they consider distortions and bias perpetrated by the liberal media, which are largely in league with the Democratic Party.
As President Trump notches a 50-percent approval rating in his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, Gallup reported on Thursday that “most of the variation in Trump’s recent job approval rating is among independents. In [our] current poll, 47% of independents approve of the job he is doing as president, the highest Gallup has measured for [that] group to date.”
Various high-ranking officials at the University of Delaware, which refuses to release the Senate records of Joe Biden that could potentially corroborate the sexual-assault allegations of former staffer Tara Reade, have close personal and financial ties to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
Friday’s revelation in the Tara Reade-Joe Biden sex-assault story has sent staff members of the recently ended campaign of socialist Bernie Sanders into a rage. But even worse, a top Democrat strategist has said Biden should quit the race. Conservatives can say the media and Democrats don’t take sex assault seriously unless the accused is a Republican. And at least one honest journalist has warned that the story won’t go away.
The national press secretary for the now-suspended Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is openly speculating that the Democrat Party will replace presumptive nominee Joe Biden before the general election in November. Briahna Joy Gray, a journalist and political consultant, bashed Biden and the Democrat leadership in a tweet on Thursday.
Senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, announced that he plans to subpoena a consulting firm with ties to Hunter Biden and to Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings in order to review records and determine whether the foreign firm tried to use Hunter Biden to “influence” American policy.
Following the Super Tuesday presidential primaries, it seems likely that former Vice President Joe Biden will become the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in this year’s election. Speculation has grown concerning what a Biden administration might look like. This speculation increased after sources within the Biden campaign gave the news website Axios a list of names the candidate is considering for Cabinet posts and other top positions within his administration.
It now appears that Joe Biden will win the Democratic Party’s nomination to face Donald Trump in November. His only hurdle is Bernie Sanders, the “Extreme Leftist.” Biden is characterized as less radical so perhaps he should be referred to as a mere “Hard Leftist,” a bit less extreme. But the mass media has already attached the label “Moderate“ to the former vice president.
The headline at CNN has it right: “Biden still has a lot of problems as a candidate.” Problem is, the rest of the boilerplate analysis doesn’t tell us much about Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s “problems,” beyond the usual abstract political calculus involving the array of victims groups that compose the Democrat “coalition.”
William Kristol and his band of NeverTrumpers at The Bulwark, an online site, are gleefully celebrating Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday victories over Bernie Sanders. Some of them would even vote for Biden (or China's Xi Jinpeng) over Donald Trump. Undoubtedly, some of them would even vote for Bernie over Trump — except that it would be harder to explain their voting rationale and resume their undeserved positions as “conservative” thought leaders any time in the near future. Cheering for Biden, though, can be played by the neocons as both anti-Trump and anti-Bernie.
After dropping an estimated $700 million into his campaign, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called it a day on Wednesday morning: “I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
Left for politically dead not long ago, ex-vice president Joe Biden has risen like a Phoenix to sweep 10 Super Tuesday states in the race for the Democratic nomination. Erstwhile frontrunner Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) went from the wind at his back to political heart attack, as late-deciding voters made the difference by breaking largely for Biden. Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) had a disastrous night — finishing third in her home state — while billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s similarly poor showing caused him to exit the race.
Not-Exactly-Newsflash: Joe Biden’s in trouble, and not just because he said “gun violence” has killed 150 million Americans since 2007. The man who led the Real Clear Politics polling average for a year and was the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination for president has lost the first three party primaries and looks like he might lose Texas and California on Super Tuesday.
Sometimes a “radical” is someone right 50 years too soon (or too late) — and often a “moderate” is a wrong radical who wants to be thought right by people voting today. The latter is the case with this year’s Democrat candidates, points out commentator Jack Hellner, as he warns of the “phony press trope about all those Democratic ‘moderates.’”
By the end of February, the race for the Democratic nomination may have come down to a choice of one of three white men. Two are well into their 70s, and either would be the oldest president ever inaugurated. The third is a 38-year-old gay in a same-sex marriage who would be our youngest president ever.
For former Vice President Joe Biden it was over even before it got started. At the beginning of the contest at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, Friday night, Biden was asked by moderator George Stephanopoulos of ABC News what Iowa voters “missed” by giving him, the former front runner, a fourth place finish behind Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg. Biden responded, “They didn’t miss anything.... I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.”
Joe Biden may be tops in national Democrat primary polls, but he certainly doesn’t lead the field in policy analysis if a recently resurfaced video is any indication. In it the ex-vice president condemns and calls “irrational” the very policy that allowed a gun-wielding parishioner to thwart Sunday’s Texas church shooting — and join the countless legal firearm owners who foil crimes every year.
Former Vice President Joe Biden says his staff members did not tell him about the possible conflict of interest that involved him and his son, Hunter, vis-à-vis their dealings in Ukraine. But that revelation in Biden’s recent interview with National Public Radio is, in a sense, old news. The warning from a top official at State, ignored by Biden’s staff, went public some time ago.
Andrey Derkach, the Ukrainian parliamentarian who has claimed to have evidence showing that former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 in lobbying fees from Burisma Holdings, announced on Facebook Thursday that he met with President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani (shown), to discuss the creation of a group to combat corruption in Ukraine.
Joe Biden’s bad luck, received a few days ago when Ukraine expanded its probe into Burisma Holdings, just got worse: U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has opened an investigation into Biden forcing Ukraine to fire its prosecutor general in 2016 as that top lawman looked into corruption at Burisma, which employed Biden’s son, Hunter.
A registered foreign agent for the government of Azerbaijan is in charge of the money for a new Super PAC which looks to assist Democrat candidate Joe Biden in his bid for the presidency in 2020. In its Statement of Organization, the new committee, called Unite the Country, lists Larry Rasky as the treasurer.
Ruling-class Democrats might whisper to each other and even tell the media that Joe Biden can’t defeat President Trump, but it appears that rank-and-file voters don’t agree. Biden’s latest numbers in the Real Clear Politics average of voter polls put him 5.4 points ahead of Elizabeth Warren, a shade less than last week’s six-point lead, but still close to what he polled then.
