Biden Makes Cringeworthy Remarks About Being Stopped by Police, Being Incarcerated at Historically Black College

We already brought you some classic Joe Biden today, with him at a forum confusing who was in the presidential race.

Now here’s more.

Can we say open mouth, insert foot? Yes, we can.

A black female student asked Biden at a forum at Benedict College on Saturday, “If I were your daughter, what advice would you give me the next time I am stopped by the police?”

“If you were my daughter, you’d be a Caucasian girl and you wouldn’t be pulled over,” Biden replied.

White girls never get pulled over? Or white girls named Biden don’t because they get a pass? Certainly, being the son of Joe Biden has been advantageous for Hunter Biden, as he himself acknowledged.

But what a nonsensical comment. Of course white people get pulled over and this is desperate pandering by Biden.

And he’s suggesting that every officer pulling a black woman over is doing so because of “institutional racism.” How disgusting is that? If he had any votes from law enforcement, he may have just lost them.

For the supposed “moderate,” that’s some really leftist thought there.

Not to mention, once again, he doesn’t really answer the original question in a realistic way, what should she do, how should she respond?

Suggesting to everyone that the police are out to get you in every situation is not just untrue, it’s also dangerous, to everyone involved. It encourages people not to be cooperative with officers which can result in tragedy.

But that wasn’t even the worst.

Here’s are his opening remarks at the event.

Oh, my. What can one even say about that? That’s just awful.

Plus there’s another problem, he says “I got started at Delaware State” implying he went to Delaware State University, a HBCU. But he actually went to the University of Delaware, a completely different school, not an HBCU. Doesn’t he know any more where he went to college? Or is this just crazy pandering?

These aren’t the first ‘gaffes’ during the campaign that Biden has had in regard to race. In August, he seemed to equate black kids with poor kids.

“We should challenge students in these schools and have advanced placement programs in these schools. We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it,” Biden said. “Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids.”

During his campaign with Barack Obama, he also infamously told a mostly black audience that Republicans “want to put y’all back in chains.”

Joe Biden Goes Full ‘Uncle Joe,’ Gets Confused About Who’s In Race

Democrats really are in a box when it comes to Joe Biden.

Many Democrats wanted to back him. But every time they let him out and he opens his mouth, he loses votes.

He was at it again during a forum where a young woman asked him what he was doing to reach out to Hispanics.

She mentioned how the Trump team trolled Biden, realizing that Biden wasn’t sufficiently savvy enough to buy the domain name for his Hispanic outreach slogan, Todos con Biden. The Trump team bought it, and in a funny troll, posted a page saying how Biden had forgotten Latinos and redirected to Latinos for Trump.

So she asked what else was he doing to convey his vision to Hispanics?

“There are websites that you can buy. So they went out and bought everything with that had to do with the name Biden, Joe Biden,” he responded. “So even that I’m the only campaign that I’m aware of, maybe, maybe Cisneros’ campaign is doing it, I’m not sure, um, Castro’s campaign is doing it. The fact is we have reached out extensively into the African, excuse me, Hispanic community, the Latino community, over my entire career. And we have a lot of support in the community. So what these guys have done, we wanted to make sure we could go online and in Spanish, you could in fact, learn everything I was doing and saying, and what’s it all about. Well, we can’t buy every single site out there, some of them cost $20-$30,000, etc, it would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

Yikes. What was that? Joe’s confused about who’s in the race.

Let’s start with there is no candidate in the race names “Cisneros.” Henry Cisneros was a Texas politician, the former Mayor of San Antonio, who hasn’t had a campaign since the 1980s. Talk about being stuck in time.

Cisneros was also a Clinton HUD secretary who had a big scandal when he was accused of lying to the FBI about an affair he had during his background checks for the cabinet position. All Hispanic politicians from Texas are not the same, Joe, Cisneros is not Julian Castro. And it’s not clear what Biden meant when he said “Castro’s campaign is doing it.”

Yes, you can’t buy every domain name that might include your name. But you surely should buy the ones you intend to use. That’s just a silly response. And it’s a dishonest one, since the Trump campaign only bought the one site, not “everything to do with the name Biden.”

Then, Biden never really answered her question, what was he doing to convey his vision?

Although admittedly, just as it was hard for Hillary Clinton, it’s hard to convert vision when you’re only real argument is “I’m next in line.” And it’s hard to convey vision, when you seem confused about basic things, like who’s in the race.

Exposed: Biden Used his Position at Least Twice to Help Issues Hunter’s Firm Was Lobbying

Westlake Legal Group 17329344-1af8-4a1f-8631-ab65d20076a0-1 Exposed: Biden Used his Position at Least Twice to Help Issues Hunter’s Firm Was Lobbying Ukraine lobbying Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats corruption biden Allow Media Exception

Remember how Joe Biden has repeatedly claimed that he didn’t talk to his son Hunter about his business dealings?

Let’s re-rack one of the videos for you.

That of course wasn’t quite true as his son later acknowledged when he said they had a brief conversation about his business in Ukraine. Joe Biden was also seen in a picture on a golfing outing with Devon Archer, Hunter’s business partner.

There have been questions raised in the past about Joe Biden’s actions in relation to his son’s business. He threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine unless they fired a prosecutor who was allegedly investigating his son’s Ukrainian firm. He flew his son on Air Force 2 to China where his son then met with Chinese people in the process of finalizing a business deal. And he was questioned by Tom Brokaw about actions he had taken as a Senator backing policies supportive of MBNA while his son was working for them.

But now the Washington Examiner is raising even more questions about Joe Biden’s actions.

According to the Examiner, Biden intervened on at least two occasions, privately contacting two federal agencies dealing with issues on which his son was lobbying. That intervention could have helped Hunter to the tune of “tens of thousands of dollars.”

On Feb. 28, 2007, Biden contacted DHS to express that he was “concerned about the Department’s proposed chemical security regulations authorized by Section 550 of DHS Appropriations Act of 2007,” according to the department’s log of its contacts with members of Congress.

Section 550, which was passed in 2006 as part of the DHS appropriations bill, requires high-risk chemical plants to submit site safety plans to DHS for approval, including security credentialing and training for employees.

Eight weeks earlier, the Industrial Safety Training Council had hired Hunter Biden’s firm to lobby DHS on the issue. The trade group, which represents companies that provide safety training for chemical facility employees, was mounting a heavy lobbying campaign over section 550, submitting congressional testimony about the need to expand background checks for chemical plant employees.

The Industrial Safety Training Council was seeking to expand the “language in DHS legislation regarding security clearance and credentialing for chemical facility employees and employers” in January 2007, according to lobbying disclosure records.

The Industrial Safety Training Council paid Hunter’s firm, Oldaker, Biden & Belair, $200,000 between 2007 and the end of 2008.

In the second incident in 2007, Joe Biden reached out to the Attorney General at the time, Alberto Gonzales, to talk about expanding the federal fingerprint background check system.

“I write to request your assistance in implementing an expanded background check system for our nation’s volunteer organizations,” wrote Biden. “If we can work together to expand the number of volunteer organizations that have access to fast, accurate, and inexpensive fingerprint background checks, we will make significant and important strides in our ongoing effort to protect kids across our country.”

Biden added, “I would like to convene a small meeting with key representatives” from DOJ, the FBI, members of Congress and volunteer groups.

One of Hunter’s firm’s lobbying clients at the time, a coalition of state-level criminal justice advocates called SEARCH, was also lobbying the federal government for a broader fingerprint screening system at the time.

The same day as Biden’s letter, SEARCH adopted a resolution calling on Congress to consider “any effort to improve the quality, completeness and accessibility of criminal history records” and expand the current system to “allow the return of all criminal history record information maintained by the States on the search subject through a single fingerprint check.”

SEARCH was already paying Hunter’s firm for lobbying for criminal justice programs, paying them $114,000 in 2007. But after Joe Biden introduced a bill in March to establish a national fingerprint background check system for volunteer groups that worked with children, Hunter’s firm began lobbying for the bill and SEARCH paid the firm $93,000 that year.

Tom Anderson, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, called out the appearance of impropriety, saying “it was implausible” that Joe Biden didn’t know about his son’s lobbying and that “sometimes appearances are exactly what they are.”

Indeed it’s hard to imagine Joe Biden just happened to reach out to federal agencies at the same time his son’s firm was lobbying on such issues. It’s the exact same problem that Tom Brokaw asked him about MBNA when Biden was running for president in 2008. What did Joe say then? “My son has never spoken to me”

Astonishing the number of coincidences between Joe Biden’s political actions and Hunter Biden’s business actions. For people who don’t talk.

At what point do the coincidences become too much?

Somethings Up: Tusli Gabbard Will Not Run For Congress Next Year

 (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

I don’t like to put on the tin foil hat often but this is a strange move to me. Presidential hopeful and non-favorite of Hillary Clinton, Tulsi Gabbard has just announced she will NOT seek reelection in her home district next year so she can focus on her Presidential campaign.

What is going on here?

According to MSN

While lagging behind in a crowded Democratic presidential field, Gabbard has gotten renewed attention lately after a heated argument with former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The squabble seemed to give Gabbard renewed energy on the campaign trail.

Gabbard noted in her early morning announcement that the threats of war, international tensions and the threats of a new cold war convinced her she should focus on the presidential race

“I believe I can best serve the people of Hawaii and our country as your President and Commander-in-Chief,” she said in her statement.

The whole brush up with Clinton was a gift for Gabbard being it did give her renewed attention. She capitalized on it with her smack back of Clinton about her being a Russian operative while Clinton still holds the reset button she presented with the Ruskies as Obama’s Secretary of State.

Why give up a safe seat in Congress though? She is not going to be the nominee of the party.

Gabbard could be a rising star in the Democratic party as she comes across as not crazy while holding most of the same views as those who look and act crazy. Make no mistake about that. Tulsi might be more moderate on the timetable to achieve some of the horrible ideas that Bernie and Elizabeth are hashing out, but she is lockstep with the same overall goal.

If she is calculating that her announcing over a year early she is not running again for her seat will make her look more viable for the Presidential run, I personally don’t see how.

Maybe she has started off the 4th quarter raising more money than her campaign anticipated after the Hillary dust-up. Possibly she just doesn’t like being a congress critter anymore after traveling to Iowa and New Hamshire. Could it be that MSNBC wants to hire her after she drops out as a commentator on the network that currently is offering every excuse in the book for Hillary?

This is one of the stranger moves I have ever seen for someone who does not have a viable path to the nomination of her party. I have to admit I’m stumped and wondering how it unfolds.

I’m going to have the tinfoil hat on standby though just in case I need it.

Joe Biden’s Latest Ad Is Hilarious and the Responses Are Even Better

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-24-at-1.12.59-PM Joe Biden’s Latest Ad Is Hilarious and the Responses Are Even Better Russia putin Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats biden Allow Media Exception ad 2020

Screenshot from this video

Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden has demonstrated his propensity for gaffes and being behind the times.

As my colleague Streiff noted on Wednesday, this “behind the times” problem left them open to a great troll from the Trump team when the Biden folks neglected to register the web address for their Latino coalition outreach.

Now, Biden’s latest ad just adds to that “behind the times” perception.

When you look at it, your immediate thought may be: who told him this was a good idea?

We open to what looks like one of those old commercials where an actor who hasn’t worked in years in a dated outfit is selling insurance to the elderly. Cue Uncle Joe.

Gack. What is that?

Now we have no idea what he’s talking about, Vladimir Putin coming after him. But then, neither does he, it’s just a money pitch and word is he’s desperate. This surely shows it.

And let’s stop with this “Russia interfered in our elections” terminology. Russia was behind Facebook pages for and against Trump. And the FBI alleges they were behind the DNC server hack and John Podesta’s email phishing. But because people in media and people like Biden use that terminology, a majority of Democrats reportedly believe that votes were changed or machines were hacked by Russians. If you want to say they tried to influence people’s opinions, that would be more accurate. Should we still be condemning that and trying to prevent it? Yes. But no one except the voters “decided who the president was going to be.” And to suggest that Putin did is a dishonest fiction, pushing this “illegitimate president” theme again.

Let’s also look back to the Obama administration where Biden was the Vice-President, that administration that he has embraced as a big part of his record. The administration that was known for its “flexibility” when it came to Russia. That administration that, knowing everything that Russia was, presented them with a “reset” button (with the wrong word). That administration that allowed Russia to walk into Eastern Europe and steal Crimea from Ukraine, doing nothing in response. That administration who drew red line after red line with Russia-backed Syria and then did nothing as they continued to drop chemical weapons on their people. Indeed there may be no administration in recent history who has bent over more or been so accommodating for Putin than the Obama administration.

Can we ever forget these golden video moments?

Let’s look at the Trump administration, by contrast, since that’s the comparison Joe raised. Let’s disabuse people of this fiction that the present administration has been favorable to Russia.

The Trump administration came in and put more sanctions on Russia on top of the ones already in place, going further than Obama ever had. Here’s a great list of the dozens of Russians people and businesses subject to sanctions and actions. Trump also booted Russian diplomats out. When Syria continued to use chemical weapons, he bombed them. He gave Ukraine lethal weapons to be able to defend themselves, something the Obama administration refused to do. The administration also said they were giving Ukraine $10 million to help build their naval defense against Russia. After the Russians attacked a US base in Syria in Feb. 2018, the Trump administration didn’t set a red line, they dropped bombs on the heads of the Russians, killing hundreds. And let’s not even get into the many ways that Trump, by building up the American economy and the energy industry, stomps all over the Russian agenda. Where Obama stalled the Keystone XL pipeline (there he is being flexible again!), Trump signed executive orders fast-tracking it, for example.

We’d tell Joe to get better ad advice. But then, we’d miss out on laughing at silly things like this.

Top Hillary advisor: It’s true, she hasn’t ruled out jumping into this presidential race

Westlake Legal Group r-6 Top Hillary advisor: It’s true, she hasn’t ruled out jumping into this presidential race warren Tucker Carlson The Blog run primary Philippe Reines Hillary Clinton democrat buttigieg biden 2020

So the rumors are true. She really is thinking about it.

Normally you could dismiss a tease like this one on grounds that the would-be candidate who’s teasing it is just trying to stay relevant. There’s no publicity like “might run for president” publicity, right? Clinton doesn’t need to head-fake about jumping in to get the media to cover her, though. Every time she dings Trump on Twitter or elsewhere it’s amplified endlessly by the press. Tulsi Gabbard is now running as the anti-Hillary in the field thanks to one 20-second comment Clinton made about her recently in an interview. Any “she might run” publicity has a short shelf life, too: We’re only about three months removed from the Iowa caucuses. No one will believe that Hillary might still be getting in the race if she hasn’t entered by, say, Thanksgiving. The idea that she’s doing this for PR just doesn’t add up.

I think she’s looking for excuses to get in but just hasn’t gotten the clarity she needs from the polls to justify doing so. This new one from Quinnipiac is the most enticing for her to come along in awhile considering it’s the worst number Biden has pulled in a national survey since August:

Westlake Legal Group q-2 Top Hillary advisor: It’s true, she hasn’t ruled out jumping into this presidential race warren Tucker Carlson The Blog run primary Philippe Reines Hillary Clinton democrat buttigieg biden 2020

Note the numbers among women especially. Warren, the lone woman left among the plausible nominees, hasn’t even won a third of Democratic women voters (yet). Biden is down to 20 percent among them. There’s a lot of room potentially there for Hillary. And of course Clinton has always done well with black voters, her firewall against Bernie Sanders in 2016. Would it be unrealistic to expect her to immediately attract, say, a third of all Democratic women and a third of all black Democrats instantly if she were to jump in?

Because if that did happen, she’d be right in the thick of the race on day one.

There are problems, though. For starters, this Quinnipiac survey is unusual in showing Biden fading behind Warren, theoretically creating demand for a new centrist-y candidate to get in. Yesterday CNN published a poll showing him leading the field with 34 percent, fully 15 percent ahead of Warren. Two other polls recently had him at 30 percent or better while others have had him steady at 27 percent, still a respectable number in a field this big. That is, the evidence that Biden is beginning to stagger as Warren supposedly rises inexorably just isn’t there — yet. And given the sort of time window Clinton is looking at to get in, if it doesn’t arrive very soon it’ll be too late.

The other problem is that it’s possible Hillary would have her best day of polling on the day she announced and would begin to sink shortly afterward. All of her vulnerabilities would be publicized by the other candidates. Some Biden fans would resent her for trying to snatch away his chance at the nomination. Progressives would recoil at her attempt to derail the party’s journey towards socialism. Even her fans would be given pause by the inconvenient fact that she already lost once before to the guy they’re spoiling to beat next year.

But there’s this scenario too: She gets in and Biden starts to fade as neoliberals conclude, reluctantly, that he’s “lost a step” and therefore Clinton’s the only game in town. The progressive vote remains split between Bernie and Warren, enabling a surprise Clinton win in Iowa. Or, even if it consolidates behind one of them, enough moderate Democrats end up being spooked by the idea that Sanders and Warren are too radical to beat Trump that they grudgingly swing around to Hillary as the least bad (but still bad) option. There are ways to rationalize the belief that she’d do better against Trump than she did in 2016, too. Her advisor gives you one in the clip below: Trump’s not running as a populist outsider anymore but as an incumbent with a record he’ll need to defend. He’s all but certain to have “impeached” on his resume by the time Election Day arrives. Meanwhile, Hillary’s own chief scandal from 2016, Emailgate, is old news by now. And plenty of Hillary fans will tell you that she only lost to Trump because of Russian meddling. With America less likely to get caught sleeping on the threat of foreign interference next year, that’s less of a worry in 2020. Add all of that up and toss in the fact that Hillary 2020 would surely spend lots more time in the Rust Belt than Hillary 2016 did and is it *possible* that she could win?

Sure, it’s possible. You’ll never convince me that she’d have the best chance of winning among the Democratic field; a rando like Amy Klobuchar or even Joe Biden in doddering form would be a much safer gamble. But yeah, conceivably she could win. She won the popular vote once before, after all.

She’s not running, though. I think the “Hillary might run again” rumors are nothing more or less than the Clintons clinging to the *theoretical* possibility that their time hasn’t quite passed yet. It’s hard to begrudge a retired player the fantasy that there’s still a chance for them to suit up, take the field, and finally win the Super Bowl. Same here.

AP: Ukraine’s president knew as early as May that Trump was interested in the Biden probe

Westlake Legal Group z AP: Ukraine’s president knew as early as May that Trump was interested in the Biden probe zelensky Ukraine The Blog quid pro quo New York Times giuliani Burisma biden ap

One of the chief arguments in Trump’s defense on the Ukraine matter was that the Ukrainians might not have even understood that there was a quid pro quo involving the military aid with Ukraine. And if one of the parties to a quid pro quo doesn’t know they’re a party to it, then how the hell can a quid pro quo be said to exist? If Zelensky knows he’s getting aid and then Trump says, “We’d like you to investigate Biden,” and Zelensky says, “Sure,” and only later does he figure out that the aid is held up, well, then, his willingness to open the Biden probe can’t be linked to the aid. After all, he didn’t realize until after the fact that the aid was contingent upon him opening the probe! Trump himself has made this point as recently as this morning:

I’ve never understood the argument about why the timing of the aid is important, though, I confess. Obviously Zelensky realized at some point that the aid had been held up, and he had every reason to deduce from his dealings with Trump, Giuliani, Sondland, Mulvaney, etc, that his lack of concrete action on the “corruption” investigations that the president was interested might be the cause. Whether or not he knew that Trump wanted a quid pro quo at the time of their July 25th phone call, he surely grew suspicious later, once the aid was delayed. But ultimately, what Zelensky knew or wanted is secondary to the impeachment inquiry. The question is what Trump intended, and when. If Zelensky didn’t realize until later that the aid had been held up, so what? What Congress needs to know is why Trump held up the aid. If he was trying to arrange a quid pro quo and Zelensky was a little slow in grasping the arrangement, that doesn’t refute the charge that he was abusing his power.

But the media is engaged with Trump’s argument and is sniffing around today in light of his tweet, trying to pin down when exactly the Ukrainians figured out that the aid they were expecting had been blocked. The NYT published a scoop a few hours ago: According to sources, they had reason to believe there was a mysterious delay as far back as the first week of August, just a week or two after Trump and Zelensky had their famous phone call.

The problem was not a bureaucratic glitch, the Ukrainians were told then. To address it, they were advised, they should reach out to Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, according to the interviews and records…

[T]t means that the Ukrainian government was aware of the freeze during most of the period in August when Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, and two American diplomats were pressing President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to make a public commitment to the investigations being sought by Mr. Trump.

The communications did not explicitly link the assistance freeze to the push by Mr. Trump and Mr. Giuliani for the investigations. But in the communications, officials from the United States and Ukraine discuss the need to bring in the same senior aide to Mr. Zelensky who had been dealing with Mr. Giuliani about Mr. Trump’s demands for the investigations, signaling a possible link between the matters.

“Ukrainian officials had grown suspicious that the assistance was in jeopardy because formal talks with the Pentagon on its release had concluded by June without any apparent problem,” the Times went on to say. So: In June they think they’re getting the money; in July Trump mentions to Zelensky on the call that he’s interested in CrowdStrike and Burisma; and within two weeks the aid has been frozen for reasons no one can or will explain to them except Mick Mulvaney, who told reporters last week that Trump had specifically mentioned the DNC server to him as part of the reason the money was being withheld. If — if — Zelensky hadn’t already realized a quid pro quo was on the table when he and Trump spoke, he likely figured it out pretty soon afterward as Sondland was pressing him about issuing a statement about reopening the Burisma probe.

The Associated Press has its own scoop today, though, which pushes the timeline back much further:

Volodymyr Zelenskiy gathered a small group of advisers on May 7 in Kyiv for a meeting that was supposed to be about his nation’s energy needs. Instead, the group spent most of the three-hour discussion talking about how to navigate the insistence from Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, for a probe and how to avoid becoming entangled in the American elections, according to three people familiar with the details of the meeting…

The three people’s recollections differ on whether Zelenskiy specifically cited that first call with Trump [on April 21] as the source of his unease. But their accounts all show the Ukrainian president-elect was wary of Trump’s push for an investigation into the former vice president and his son Hunter’s business dealings.

Either way, the newly elected leader of a country wedged between Russia and the U.S.-aligned NATO democracies knew early on that vital military support might depend on whether he was willing to choose a side in an American political tussle.

That makes sense. Rudy Giuliani was speaking openly to American media about Trump’s interest in Ukraine’s Biden and DNC investigations by early May; the Times’s much-cited interview with him on the topic was published on May 9. Presumably Rudy and/or Trump were already in contact with Zelensky’s team by that point to impress upon them the importance of reopening the probes, and so it stands to reason that the Ukrainians would have realized that cooperation on Burisma and the DNC might be “helpful” in securing the military aid they were expecting as it made its way through the U.S. bureaucracy. With all of that as background, it becomes very hard to believe that Zelensky didn’t know or strongly suspect at the time of his July 25th phone call with Trump that the president thought the two had an understanding. Imagine Zelensky’s surprise when the aid was mysteriously delayed afterwards anyway, apparently because the Ukrainian was reluctant to issue a public statement that he was reopening the Burisma and DNC matters. In the end, it seems, Trump wanted more than an empty promise on a phone call that the probes would resume. He wanted Zelensky locked in, on the record, that they were happening.

Which itself is interesting. If Trump is telling the truth when he says that he’s only ever been interested in “fighting corruption” here, why was the White House apparently so insistent on Zelensky issuing a statement that he was reopening the probes? Why not just let him quietly investigate and then announce his findings in due time? The White House’s interest in a public declaration from Ukraine was so great that Sondland and Kurt Volker took to preparing a written statement for Zelensky involving Burisma and the DNC which they hoped/expected the Ukrainian would deliver. That doesn’t make sense from the standpoint of “fighting corruption,” which would be in America’s national interest. It does make sense from the standpoint of Trump wanting to wound a political rival by having Zelensky alert Americans to the fact that the Bidens were in trouble in Ukraine, which would be in Trump’s personal electoral interest. And ultimately that’s what the quid pro quo inquiry is all about: If, as it appears, military aid was held up to extract something from Ukraine, was it a legit demand made on behalf of the American public or was it an illicit one made on behalf of Trump personally? The emphasis on Zelensky issuing a formal statements seems to answer it.

Either way, if the AP story is correct, Ukraine was worried about its military aid being linked to the Biden and DNC probes in some sort of quid pro quo as far back as May. The “transcript” of Trump’s call with Zelensky on July 25th can only be understood in that context.

Biden Apologizes for Use of the Term ‘Lynching,’ But Somehow Makes It Even Worse

Media and Democrats flipped out yesterday over President Donald Trump using the term “lynching” in describing the Democratic effort trying to remove him from office.

“Impeachment is not ‘lynching,’ it is part of our Constitution,” Joe Biden ranted. “Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable.”

Of course, then it was revealed that virtually every Democrat used the term to defend Bill Clinton. Even CNN, incredibly, used the term in describing the questioning of Hillary Clinton on Benghazi.

If ever there was a wrong usage of the term, that would be it.

And of course, despite deploring the term yesterday, Joe Biden also used it to defend Bill Clinton. Whoops.

He apparently forgot all about how despicable and abhorrent he was then.

But now he’s backtracking on his comments then and apologizing for his use of the term.

“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that,” Biden said. “Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily.”

So wait, he didn’t chose his words deliberately when he said it back in 1998?

Twitchy picks up on some of the stunned responses.

And this guy wants to be president? Yikes.

Recently, one of my email pals sent me an incredible opinion piece from Howell Woltz at The International Centre for Justice, in Warsaw, Poland. He is the author of Justice Denied: The United States vs. the People,” a very interesting book about the US justice system and federal prisons and the need for some serious reform. Occasionally, an opinion piece is so profound that it simply MUST be disseminated to a much wider audience than a simple blog post. This is one of such article. In this commentary, he opines on the DoJ/FBI cabal’s ongoing coup against POTUS while explaining some key connections among John Brennan , Mitt Romney, Cofer Black, Burisma Holdings (Ukraine), Bararck Obama, Hillary Clinton, and all the rest. It fills in a lot of gaps and explains much about what is going on with respect to the Ukraine kerfuffle.

While I can’t vouch for the veracity of all the claims here, this just rings true to me and connects a lot of very interesting dots. As usual, I caution you to “trust but verify.” If nothing else, it serves as a departure point for your own dot-connecting activities. The more independent analysis is conducted by all, the clearer picture becomes over time. These are some extended excerpts from Woltz’s opinion piece. More than a few light bulbs may be turned on for you after reading this. Note: this article was published on 8 October, so keep this in mind as you read it.

Donald J. Trump is not a RINO or DC insider.  He’s a tough-guy billionaire from Queens, New York and a street-fighter. When the Democrats realised last week that Trump was actually heading up his own investigation rather than leaving it to their Deep State apparatchiks—and doing so directly with the leaders of Ukraine, Australia, and Italy (and perhaps the U.K.)—they did the political equivalent of starting a fire in a theatre. House of Representatives Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, announced impeachment proceedings against the president just three hours after stating in a speech that she would not. Speaker Pelosi had zero evidence, cause, stated reason and lacked the required vote of the House of Representatives to do so, but announced it anyway.

Strangely enough…and what caught my attention… Mitt Romney jumped on the “Impeach Trump” train that same day. How did Nancy go from “There will be no impeachment proceedings,” that morning in New York to announcing impeachment proceedings that afternoon when she got back to Washington, DC? Meet the Grand Master of the Deep State in America. Admitted Communist, John Brennan, who has some serious explaining to do now that his attempted coup of U.S. President Donald Trump has been exposed…and continues! So why did Romney want to shut down any investigation of Ukraine’s role as well? That’s the question that got this investigation started and it’s shocking.

Romney’s National Security Advisor, Joseph Cofer Black, sits on the Board of the same Burisma Holdings that was being investigated for corruption back in 2014, and the Vice President and Obama Administration demanded be shut down. Why? Because Burisma was/is their vehicle for corrupt practices in Eastern Europe. And CIA Director, John Brennan’s 9/11 Deep State partner, Cofer Black, is still the link to all that goes on there. In fact, I can state unequivocally that Burisma is the centre of Ukraine corruption and the Democrats’ shadow organisation for corrupt activities. I live in Eastern Europe (Poland) and my sources are first-hand. And I know this matters greatly to Mitt Romney as he is not yet done with politics. If Black is busted, it will reflect on Romney, and it only makes sense that Cofer Black is the Deep State ‘plant’ in case Romney ever rises above polishing knobs in the U.S. Senate. Romney wants to run for President again in 2024 and if he wins, Cofer Black will be back with his fingers on the strings either as DNI or CIA Chief of Corruption. Burisma Holdings is the hub of U.S. Democrat activities to corrupt both Ukraine and American politics and there is proof. Ukraine President Zelenskyy’s win surprised both Brennan and Black’s Deep State ops as much as Trump’s did in 2016 in America.

So who is this Cofer Black guy? Joseph Cofer Black, joined the CIA in 1974 and rose to be Director of The National Counterterrorism Center, before joining Mitt Romney. If it were not for researching this article, I admit, he was unknown to me as well. What a revelation. Black was also the Head of Counterintelligence who somehow missed the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, though according to The Economist, 16 foreign leaders and heads of intelligence agencies warned him it was not only going to happen but when. Oh well. And nothing was done about Cofer Black for this, indicating this is what the Deep State wanted. But it goes deeper. John Brennan and this guy, Cofer Black, are how 19 terrorists got into the U.S.A. to attack the U.S. on 9/11.

Editor Harry will jump on me or make Nurse Ratched give me a dose of Castor Oil if I say something I can’t prove, so I’m just going to quote the CIA whistleblower at the Jeddah, Saudi Arabia CIA staff hearing, who is the source: “According to Freedom Outpost, Brennan was the CIA station chief in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, when the 9/11 hijackers were given visas to travel to the United States. In September 2014, a whistleblower named Greg Ford, a former military intelligence officer, told Ground Zero Radio’s Clyde Lewis that the CIA had objections to the approval of those visas but Brennan actually overrode them.”

The second in command of the CIA station was directly quoted by the whistleblower as saying, ‘No way, absolutely we are not going to stamp those visas.’ But CIA Saudi station chief, John Brennan, overrode the officer in charge and ordered the visas to be stamped and issued. They came, they learned to ‘take off’ an airplane but said they were not interested in ‘how to land.’ Cofer Black ignored the reports about this strange behaviour, though it was made, I know as a fact, from the people who made it. I was also a Florida-based pilot in 2001.

You know the rest of the story. America lost over 3,000 citizens that day, and I sat for an hour trying to get past the terrorist pilots’ apartment in Coral Springs, Florida. Freedom Outpost concluded, “If it weren’t for John Brennan, 9/11 may never have happened.” I’d add to that, if Cofer Black weren’t the head of Counterterrorism, Brennan could not have gotten his men in to do the job. It took (these) two to tango. That’s an opinion, not news, but I’ll bet money I don’t have, that I’m right as it’s a no risk bet. These are partners in crime.

“Joseph Cofer Black – the former Director of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center (1999-2002) and Ambassador at Large for counter-terrorism (2002-2004).”

“Mr. Black is an internationally recognized authority on counterterrorism, cyber security, national security, and foreign affairs.” (these are quotes from Burisma’s website)

Brennan definitely had help in this. These terrorists had to have someone at the highest level in U.S. Counterintelligence to let their mission come to pass and succeed by ignoring all the warnings. They even took their flight training near my home, and I remember being locked down in Coral Springs, FL after 9/11 where they lived for three days while the FBI went through their apartment just a few blocks away. And this is where Romney’s man, Joseph Cofer Black, comes in. He was the partner in crime of John Brennan, (the Deep State Master), as well as being Mitt Romney’s National Security Advisor. Bad news for Mittens. And Cofer Black is the reason Romney is desperate to have President Trump’s real investigation shut down. As Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan was also in charge of the dirty tricks campaign against then-candidate, Donald Trump. All of that has now been uncovered by investigative reporters Gregg Jarrett (The Russia Hoax) and Peter Schweizer (Secret Empires) with enough references to satisfy Editor Harry and Nurse Ratched.

Amazingly, the plot was actually laid by the Deep State in 2014 before they even knew Trump would be Hillary’s foil in 2016. I found that part pretty amazing. The Ukraine/Russia story was created for whomever was the candidate to run against Hillary Clinton.

For John Brennan, it really didn’t matter to him who ran on the Republican side. He just cared that whomever it was, lost to the Deep State’s choice – Hillary Clinton. Brennan, Black, James Clapper, James Comey and a host of others were prepared to make sure of it. It was exposed just last week that Brennan flew under a fake passport to avoid detection on his trip to set this up in Eastern Europe as early as 2015. There is no explanation for a CIA Director to do this unless what he was doing was illegal.

Now let’s go back to Joseph Cofer Black. He is Romney’s Ukraine man, and Brennan’s long-time associate who is still covering here in Eastern Europe (from where I am reporting) for the Deep State in America. Brennan came back Stateside from the Saudi Arabian CIA office the year after arranging for the 9/11 attackers to get into America. So what did he do? He took over CIA Counterintelligence from his partner, Cofer Black.  Convenient, eh? The Counterintelligence guy who ‘missed’ the 16 warnings on 9/11, and the guy who granted the attackers visas to get into the U.S. to take pilot training and do it, swap jobs, perhaps to prevent detection? Well it worked…until now.

And history repeats. The tag team is back at it. Barack Obama chose (or was told) to make John Brennan his CIA Director. Brennan then sets up the Russian hoax through the Ukraine government and intel operatives covertly in 2015 to target any candidate who might face Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Once Trump became the Republican candidate, President Obama authorised illegal spying on Trump’s campaign, we now know, because it was labeled a ‘counterintelligence operation’ which can only be authorised by a President.

The script for the Ukraine/Russia hoax was actually written back in 2007 to use against Republican candidate, John McCain. It was temporarily deployed but then shut down and recycled when it was clear RINO McCain would get his ass handed to him by Obama in 2008 without CIA involvement.. So, Brennan decided to use the script in 2016. The Republican’s candidate would be targeted using the same plan, according to one of Obama’s own secret service agents, now author, Dan Bongino, in his new book, Exonerated (just out last week).

The original script was written by Fusion GPS owner, Glenn Simpson. That’s the same man and company who would be paid $12 million by the Clinton Campaign, The Democrat National Committee and the FBI in 2016 for “the Steele dossier” that caused the Russia Hoax against Trump—though actually written years earlier. Glenn Simpson simply changed the names.

Unfortunately, there was a problem. Socialist Bernie Sanders was leading the Democrats side over the Chosen, Hillary, and had to be eliminated. To achieve this, the Clintons literally did a forced takeover of The Democrat National Committee and its funds. They immediately cut off Hillary’s rival, Bernie Sander’s campaign (as admitted by former DNC Director, Donna Brazille, on television) eliminating Bernie from the race.

John Brennan then began leaking the ‘dossier’ to Congressional Democrats, including then-House Speaker, Harry Reid and their media co-conspirators to begin the take down of the Republican candidate, Donald J. Trump. Ironically, Brennan also leaked the fake dossier to Sen. John McCain, it’s original target, and McCain leaked it back to its original source—the FBI—to apply for warrants to spy on Trump using their own laundered information. The FBI literally paid for the fabricated information, leaked it to the media and politicians who hated Trump, then used their reports and that dossier when fed back to them, to get warrants to spy on Trump. But then the kimchee hits the fan for real. Trump gets elected! So, who jumps over to Ukraine to protect the conspiracy from being found out? Brennan’s 9/11 partner, Joseph Cofer Black…

Within days of Trump’s inauguration was immediately put in place in Ukraine to prevent anyone from talking. The Board of Burisma Holdings—the same centre of Ukraine corruption used by Joe Biden in 2014 to enrich his kid— was the base from which to shield the Democrat origins of the Russia Hoax and its intel roots from any real investigation.

By February of 2017, Cofer Black was a voting member of the Board of Burisma. You’ll hear the screams around the world this week as the democrats realise that Trump has taken this investigation on personally rather than leaving it to the deep state vermin. It’s all starting to fit together now, isn’t it? So, here’s what to expect.

Yes. There will be wailing a-plenty and gnashing of teeth over coming days, and this is the point where the president’s security needs to be at an all-time high, cause The Deep State is spinning out of control and desperate. If the new leaders of the nations that aided Brennan, Black and the Dems—all of whom are admirers of POTUS—have investigated the crimes of their predecessors as Trump asked, he likely has the evidence on his desk rather than having it hidden by the Deep State criminals.

This past Friday, it became known that President Trump had not only launched his own investigation with foreign leaders into the 2016 Election tampering, but that it was almost complete. As soon as that happened, the freak-out began. At 65 years of age, I’ve not seen one quite like it. The Deep State was and is in paroxysms of unmitigated fear and psychosis. They ramped up an immediate media assault using the usual outlets—CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post—and the same exact leak specialists who put America through The Russia Hoax.

The media spectacle on Friday past was immediately followed with a sua sponte announcement by Speaker Pelosi that she was impeaching the President—a power she does not possess no matter how many cocktails she’s had. A completely false narrative was spun of what was said in President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, knowing Trump would never allow them to have a copy of the classified transcript to disprove their lies. But guess what?  Within 24 hours, in another act of unprecedented transparency The Donald did just that. He released the full, unredacted transcript of the call, publicly proving them all to be Pinocchios. And I just watched his Attorney, Rudy Giuliani, announce that he is drafting a lawsuit to file against those who lied about his client, Donald Trump—another unprecedented event to my knowledge.

So the price of lying about the President is about to get expensive, and while Rudy’s suit will be in civil court, if proven that these public officials violated Trump’s civil rights ‘under colour of law’,  it might become a criminal referral under 18 USC §§ 241, 242 (Deprivation of rights under colour of law and a conspiracy to do so). I personally believe this is why the President and his lawyers are doing it. Through the civil suit, they’ll have the right of discovery to get records they could never access in any other way. By then, Trump’s team will have enough evidence in the civil suit to refer the defendants for criminal prosecution by the Dept. of Justice.

In the Deep State’s current state of mania, an assassination attempt is not only likely but perhaps inevitable. I predict they will have one of their insiders still in the White House do it, or a foreign team (CIA trained) do the hit on his helicopter. Not a single CIA, DOJ, NSA, DNI or Secret Service leftover from Barack Hussein Obama should be allowed near him and then all 17 illegal spy agencies that have so disgraced my nation should be shaken up or even better, shut down.

No other leader in my nation’s history would have the audacity to take on these evil forces—or have a chance of winning other than Donald Trump—and they will do everything possible to take him out before he gets them. In my opinion, we’ll either have a presidential funeral followed by a descent into the darkness of Socialism, or a brighter and better day with dozens of Deep Staters eating institutional food and wearing orange for life. I’m praying for Door #2.

Like I said, the preceding rings true to me, and it comports with my own thinking on the whole sordid subject based on what has been uncovered by many independent journalists over the past two years. There is absolutely no question that the Deep State has been trying to take out President Trump from even before his inauguration in January 2017. There is more to this article which can be read here. Think about the details of this article in the context of everything that has been going on regarding Ukraine since the “whistleblower” started to dominate the news. It’s obvious that the Deep State and their paid media allies are extremely agitated – and for good reason! And why else other than complicity in the corruption would Mitt Romney be out front in the “get Trump” brigade these days? To reiterate, as with all sources, I recommend that you trust but verify, but I’m praying for Door #2, too!

The end.

The Tomahawks Come Out for Elizabeth Warren From Other Democrats on Health Care

Senator Elizabeth Warren

The faux Indian references never get old.

Yesterday, I wrote about how Sen. Elizabeth Warren FINALLY has gotten around to talking about actually releasing a plan on Medicare for all. READ: FINALLY: Elizabeth Warren Will Unveil Her Medicare For All Plan. We Still Go Broke With It. This plan is full of crap that she can’t actually do. Simply because the system is already broke and taxing all the wealth in the country won’t fix that.

One of her colleagues in the race for the Democratic nomination in 2020 has taken notice and has decided to call her out.

According to Fox News

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is being dishonest about her health care plan, which would add trillions to the deficit and raise taxes on all Americans, so she can use it as a soundbite, said Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo, on Monday.

“I think she’s not being honest about her plan,” Bennet said on “CNN Newsroom.” “I think her plan, which costs $33 trillion, is the equivalent of 70 percent of all the taxes that the federal government will collect over the next 10 years.

“I mean, it is a massive increase in taxes to this country and it hasn’t been explained to the American people,” he continued.

“It’s a soundbite. And more than that… it’s not based on common sense.”

What tipped you off, Senator, that her lips were moving?

Bennet has actually praised Bernie Sanders on his plan for at least being honest about how he is going to tax people for the luxury of free healthcare. Sanders is going to tax everyone and says it. Elizabeth’s plan, much like Obamacare was, is built upon a premise of “I won’t be around when the crap hits the fan so you guys figure it out.”

As we come up to the 100-day mark before the Iowa caucuses we are going to see that those who are on the bubble or are ticked off that they have not taken off in the polls start taking scalps of the frontrunner. (I CAN’T STOP.)

Warren has a very strained relationship with the truth and it is no surprise that she would put out a plan that other semi-reasonable people would immediately destroy. The last debate showed that when everyone took a shot at her they were letting her know she was full of buffalo chips. Going forward this pounding is only going to get worse.

Elizabeth should just go full Bernie and decide to be absolutely honest and say if you want mediocre health care for all then we have to tax you more than you have ever been taxed before. This is what you want, lemmings, so shut your pie holes and obey.

Maybe then her Senate colleagues also running for President would offer her praise instead of scorn.
