Confusion: Biden offers sympathy for the ‘tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6067771865001_6067770486001-vs Confusion: Biden offers sympathy for the ‘tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan’ Washington Examiner fox-news/person/joe-biden fnc/politics fnc Emily Larsen article 4d96db1e-5ada-55da-8ad3-7879f5733909

Former Vice President Joe Biden misstated the locations of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, while speaking to donors at a high-dollar fundraiser in San Diego on Sunday night.

Biden, 76, mistakenly referred to the shootings as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,” but later corrected himself, according to a pool report. Biden seemingly confused Houston for El Paso and Michigan for Ohio when speaking to donors about the shootings.

TRUMP DECLARES ‘HATE HAS NO PLACE IN OUR COUNTRY,’ AS DEMS DEMAND RECALL OF CONGRESS

The fundraiser for his presidential campaign took place at the home of businessman Mark Arabo, who is an advocate for persecuted Iraqi Christians. Around 75 attendees at the fundraiser received a three-course meal before the vice president’s remarks, and listened to Biden speak in a marble-tiled living area with two chandeliers as they sat in rows of white chairs.

Sunday was not the first time that Biden mixed up names on the 2020 campaign trail. In May, Biden confused former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who left office in 1990, with then-Prime Minister Theresa May.

“You know what, the president’s words have meaning, no matter who he or she is. They are the face of America,” Biden said at the Sunday fundraiser. He added that he does not hold President Trump personally responsible for the shooting, but noted that he has influence on the country.

Book Chronicling the Insanity to Stop Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Hits #1, But the Media Are All Crickets. Coincidence?

As you may have heard via conservative channels, there’s a hot new book on the New York Times Best Seller list: Carrie Severino and Mollie Hemingway’s Justice on Trial chronicles the hysteria-soaked Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

Wanna tiptoe through the tulips of derangement? Here ya go:

In Light Of Kavanaugh, Nut On MSNBC Predicts A Possible ‘Thousand-Year Reich’

There was certainly enough meat on that bone to fill a book — the abject insanity that surrounded the hearings was so bizarre that just thinking of it is making me need a nap.

Who also seems to have gone to sleep: the media.

The press hasn’t seemed interested in the book’s success, despite its place at #6 in the NYT rankings and its #1 snag on Amazon before it was even available.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, the book was released July 9th, and it’s been crickets over at CNN, MSNBC, the AP, The Washington Post, CBS, and NYT.

Perhaps the silence is explained by National Review’s write-up of JOT, the headline for which was “The Plot Against Kavanaugh.”

From their review:

Many of these accusations were disproved immediately, but only after the media breathlessly reported them as worthy of consideration. The Rhode Island accuser admitted the story was false after the FBI looked into it, and more followed suit once their stories were exposed as frauds. But others hung on, and the Ford letter became the focus. The authors’ recounting of the tedious negotiations between Ford and Grassley just to get her to appear recalls the tension of those weeks and take the reader back to the craziness of the time.

The interest groups, protesters, mainstream media, and many of the Democratic senators themselves joined in a campaign to speak directly to the voters about defeating Kavanaugh — or anyone else Trump nominated. It was reminiscent, in some ways, of Trump’s 2016 campaign, in which he talked past reporters to address the voters directly through social media. But the Democrats were aiming at the wrong target. Their scattershot blasts of anti-Kavanaugh messages energized their base, but that base had already had their say and would not vote again until November. Even the Democrats could not stretch things out that long.

Co-author Mollie lamented the lack of MSM coverage:

“The New York Times’ first mention of our exhaustively reported and heavily researched book about the most important thing that happened to the country last year was when they had to place us on their best seller list. It is a sad reminder that many in the media are not interested in journalism but progressive advocacy.”

The Examiner noted such media mumness isn’t new:

It is a typical story, however, for some conservative books. For example, conservative talk show host Mark Levin’s latest, Unfreedom of the Press, was also ignored by media big shots, but debuted as the New York Times No. 1 best seller.

If you’ve got the energy to relive one of the last decade’s most mentally ill chapters in American politics, get your copy of the hardcover here.

Revealed: Barack Obama Slammed Hillary Clinton, Savaged Her Campaign After 2016

We are apparently stuck in some layer of hell that requires us to constantly relive the 2016 election. Democrats are still trying to re-litigate with their various Trump investigations and not a month goes by without Hillary Clinton herself letting us know the election was stolen from her.

Former President Barack Obama is no exception as new revelations in an upcoming book reveal his reaction to Hillary Clinton’s loss.

Former President Barack Obama was unhappy with Hillary Clinton and her failed “soulless campaign” in 2016, saying he saw her loss as a “personal insult.”

The new details come from a recently released update to New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker’s book Obama: The Call of History.

The new edition, which includes Obama’s reaction to the 2016 election, said Obama compared himself to Michael Corleone, the titular character of “The Godfather.” Obama thought he “almost got out” of office untouched, like a mob boss avoiding a hit job.

That’s pretty rough, although is he wrong? Her campaign was essentially rudderless, with no real purpose articulated and led by one of the most robotic, inauthentic people to ever run.

What’s just as funny in these comments is just how much of a narcissist Obama is. Why would he take it as a personal insult? His term was over. The comparing himself to the Godfather is also pretty comical. It is a window into his mind though. He really saw himself as some transcendent figure, floating above it all and never making any mistakes. Of course, those of us living in reality saw plenty of scandals and flubs by the former President but he clearly has no self-awareness of that.

The irony here is that Obama’s failures were a large factor in the environment that allowed Trump to win. Had he been less divisive and less dismissive of his opponents, perhaps Hillary would have garnered that last 75k votes she needed in MI, PA, and WI? Instead, he propagated constant division, leading to events such as the Ferguson riots. He also refused to compromise at all with the GOP when it came to legislation.

The book details that Obama could not believe Americans had “decided to replace him with a buffoonish showman whose calling cards had been repeated bankruptcies, serial marriages and racist dog whistles.”

Again, perhaps Obama should reflect on why he was replaced with Trump? Instead, he seems oblivious to the idea that anyone could do anything but love him. So while Obama’s shots at Clinton aren’t wrong, he should perhaps take a long look in the mirror if he wants someone to blame for the 2016 election.

Because in the end, no one had more to do with Trump becoming President than Barack Obama.

MAJOR REPORT: John McCain’s Family Will Change Parties & Endorse Biden in an Attempt to Oust Trump

Megan McCain is no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s not a surprise — it runs in the family.

The senator and the President had a history of conflict, and Meghan’s railed against the Big Chees on The View relentlessly (holy cow, see here).

And when Meghan rails, she rails really big (here).

Now the McCain family is staking their anti-Trump claim for 2020 with an endorsement of former vice president — and gays-are-security-risks (here) senator — Joe “the Mitts” Biden.

Speaking of, here’s a fantastic video for ya:



Back to the McCains: As per the Washington Examiner, they’re preparing to say “bon voyage” to their erstwhile-beloved GOP. Preferring Touchy Joe, for Meghan and clan, those letters now stand for Grope Other Party:

In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him even after his death last August at age 81, the McCain family is preparing to break with the Republican Party. McCain represented the party in Congress for 35 years and was chosen as its presidential nominee in 2008, losing to Barack Obama.

Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on The View, will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.

That’s considerable news, though not necessarily a shock. The family is determined to take out Trump:

A former McCain campaign official with close ties to the family said support for Biden was a given, but they needed to calculate how they could best help the former vice president. Both Cindy and Meghan McCain remain Republicans, and one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good. “It’s undeniable that Joe Biden and the McCain family have a very close, personal relationship. It’s about what’s good for him [Biden].”

JB’s expected to announce a vie for the positioning of his butt into the most powerful desk chair in the world on Thursday. And Sen. McCain’s widow is ready and waitin’, Jack:

Another McCain family source said there had been discussions with the Bidens about his 2020 run, which is expected to be announced on Thursday. “They talk regularly and have been supportive of his run,” the source said. “The question is going to be timing and coordinating with the Biden campaign. There are a lot of moving parts there and [Biden’s campaign is] not necessarily organized. I wouldn’t expect a formal family endorsement because some of McCain’s family is still in the military, but I do expect Cindy to speak out at some point.”

The source said they expected Meghan McCain to speak out in favor of Biden should he get the nomination, but a Cindy McCain endorsement could come sooner.

2020’s getting interesting, folks. But it remains to be seen whether the Left can let go of Mueller mania and focus on winning. It’s anyone’s guess, but I’m betting on No. If they could’ve let it go, they already would’ve (Meghan seems to think so, too — here).

But in the interest of full disclosure, I’ve been wrong before — I thought rock stars would always wear spandex.

What do you think?

Michael Avenatti accused of embezzling almost $2M from girlfriend of NBA player

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-c01ee37219fe4dd38ee32a7c392a6381 Michael Avenatti accused of embezzling almost $2M from girlfriend of NBA player Washington Examiner fnc/us fnc article 2d84ba49-b3e0-5b56-982e-9f0b6fc399d0

Embattled celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti has been accused of embezzling almost $2 million after he struck a lucrative settlement for the former girlfriend of NBA player Hassan Whiteside.

Avenatti, as the attorney for Alexis Gardner, 27, negotiated a $3 million deal for the actress and barista, $2.75 million of which Miami Heat player Whiteside, 29, wired to a trust account set up by Avenatti in January 2017, according to bank records and an Apr. 10 indictment by a California-based grand jury.

Avenatti was entitled to $1 million in legal fees, but he did not tell Gardner about the payment and misrepresented the terms of her agreement with Whiteside, prosecutors allege in the indictment. Instead, he funneled $2.5 million into the bank account of a law firm owned by an associate so he could buy a share of a small private jet.

Avenatti told Gardner that Whiteside’s first payment was for legal fees, but that she would be receive monthly installments over the next eight years. He made 11 transfers to Gardner, totaling $194,000, before the money ceased in June 2018.

Although Whiteside and Gardner confirmed the settlement in a statement, Avenatti pushed back on accusations he acted illegally or inappropriately.
