That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious

FILE – This July 27, 2006 arrest file photo made available by the Palm Beach, Fla., Sheriff’s Office shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday, July 6, 2019, on charges involving sex-trafficking allegations that date to the 2000s. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

Last week, news was exploding about the arrest and subsequent charging of Jeffrey Epstein, a serial pedophile and sexual abuser who had previously been let off via a sweetheart plea deal back in 2007.

Epstein’s news making ability wasn’t just about his crimes though. It was about who he was connected too, namely much of the rich and powerful in New York. The most serious contact appears to have been with Bill Clinton, who not only traveled many times with Epstein, but was also fingered on his “pedophile island” in the Caribbean by a victim.

As I wrote last week, Clinton is absolutely the most implicated major figure here and every investigative reporter that has any integrity left should be digging deep on this topic.

Every investigative journalist worth their salt should be diving deep into the Clinton and Epstein connection because it’s a flashing red light right now. Instead, we get side-stepping pieces like this one from Vanity Fair riffing about fairly irrelevant connections to Trump while ignoring the most disturbing revelations. Whether they are meaning to or not, the media are helping to cover for some really bad actors by refusing to shift their partisan rancor and follow the evidence.

That was wishful thinking though. On Friday, I tweeted this out with all the cynicism I could muster, opining that now that Sec. Acosta (the only figure with any connection to Trump) had resigned, the story would die a quick death.

Was I right? Absolutely.

The story has vanished. It’s like it never happened. We went from wall to wall coverage to radio silence, with only a few buried pieces on his finances seeing daylight. As long as Sec. Acosta was still around, the media had their hook to tie this all to Donald Trump, despite him having no serious relationship with Epstein and any possible malfeasance by prosecutors occurring over a decade before his presidency.

But when Acosta resigned at the end of the last week, that was it. The hook was gone. They couldn’t readily tie it to Trump anymore so they dropped it. This despite the fact that we know Bill Clinton lied about his interactions with Epstein in his press release on the matter.

Has any mainstream media outlet followed up on this? Anyone questioned Bill Clinton in person? Staked his house out? Stalked him in public to make him answer? Would any Republican ever be left alone over something as sensational and disturbing as the revelations about Clinton’s connections to Epstein? Of course not.

We’ve got a former President implicated in a sexual abuse scheme, on the flight logs with the underage girls, and visiting an island known for its sex trafficking…and no one outside of right wing media cares. CNN isn’t talking about, nor the major networks or newspapers. It doesn’t even appear any of those outlets are looking into it. It’s a total blackout.

What this shows is that the media never really cared about the women who were abused. It was always just another way to slap at Donald Trump. When that was no longer possible, they moved onto the next Trump outrage. It puts the moral vapidness of their profession on full display.

AOC Tries to Maker Her Dismal Poll Numbers Out to Be An Illusion of Trump’s

Westlake Legal Group AlexandraOcasioCortez-620x317 AOC Tries to Maker Her Dismal Poll Numbers Out to Be An Illusion of Trump’s polls poll Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with leaders of major banks, Wednesday, April 10, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

Despite the media’s fawning over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she falls more into the “infamy” column than the “fame” column. Between killing jobs for New Yorkers and failing to denounce a terrorist who used language she uses as justification for his attack, AOC isn’t exactly a voter’s favorite choice.

This fact was revealed by an Axios poll that showed the New York democratic socialist was recognized by 74 percent of voters in the poll, but those voters only had a 22 percent favorable view of her.

It’s even worse for Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was recognized by 53 percent of the voters; but came in at a dismal 9% approval. As it turns out, taking a soft view of the people who murdered thousands of innocents in a terrorist attack isn’t good for favorability.

As the media continues to rage on about Trump’s “racist tweets,” Trump took to Twitter to defend himself and pointed out that the Democrat’s condemnation of his remarks via a resolution is “con game.” He said that he truly believes the “congresswomen” hate the United States and then pointed out that they aren’t very popular, using the Axios numbers as a guide.

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap,” tweeted Trump. “This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!”

As I covered on Monday, while Trump’s tweets about the Congresswomen had their issues, they weren’t at all racist. Regardless, the media narrative is that it is and that’s what the Democrats are running with.

But I digress.

AOC decided to put up a defense of herself by calling Trump, and by extension the poll, a complete fabrication by pointing at Trump and comparing him to an authoritarian who uses “mass distortion” to push a narrative.

“Authoritarians rely on mass distortion of reality to further concentrate their power, and they will take advantage of anyone and anything to meet that end,” tweeted AOC.

That’s rich coming from an authoritarian who relies on mass distortions of reality to further concentrate her power.

This is the same AOC that told us that the world would fall into chaos in 12 years if we didn’t pass her dictator-esque legislation that would have lead the United States down into a socialist hell from which it would take decades to recover, if it ever did. This is also the same woman who posed in front of an empty parking lot in order to take pictures of herself looking sad in order to convince us that she was looking at migrant children being mistreated.

Distorting reality is what AOC does best. She even cooks up realities about herself through cringe-worthy videos where she’s a hero to future generations, and releases weird propaganda looking illustrations that make her look deep.

The truth is, AOC and her “#squad” are about as liked by voters as Yoko Ono is to Beatles fans. She’s a habitual liar, apologetically ridiculous, and comes off more as a spoiled child than a professional lawmaker.

This isn’t Trump’s illusion, this is a very real Ocasio-Cortez creation.

Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack

Westlake Legal Group tlaib-omar-aoc-pressley-620x317 Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack Liberal Elitism Front Page Stories Front Page freshman squad Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Ayanna Pressley AOC antifa Abuse of Power

The party that loves to cast blame and lecture about promoting violence has a real problem on its hands now.

Antifa has made itself a rather despicable group in just the past month alone, to say nothing of the years spent being an unhinged group of aggressive dolts. Any proper thinking person has seen this group for what it is — a gang of radicals who try to justify their violence and vandalism in the name of correcting supposed social ills.

However this outfit has been able to flourish in the country because as it employs fascistic behavior it couches itself as battling fascism, and the media has been providing cover. The lack of objective reporting, and just as often the supportive commentary from the press, has seen this organization of thugs prosper, when they should have been exposed and hectored away.

Now it appears the Democrat party has embraced Antifa as well. Last week we all saw the story of the Antifa member who was armed and throwing firebombs at an ICE facility in Tacoma. The muted response to this in the press is revealing; their inability to report on the story tells the story. Think of another instance when guns and terrorist acts would NOT have the media frothing about everything from our violent political culture, to gun control. But in the Tacoma case, the press is largely quiet, and some have even called the attacker a “martyr”.

This is the case with the Democrats as well. We have been shown video of Ayanna Pressley, fresh off of her appearance at the hilariously inept anti-Trump Press conference yesterday. (This would be where Pressley called for the Democrats to not take the bait from the President, and the AOC, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib each stepped up and promptly took his bait in their outlandish comments.) Pressly was approached by a member of The Rebel News team, and asked to comment on the Antifa firebombing.

So much is in play here. First off, the complaint about being in her personal space is a rather ironic bit off complaining. Think the fiasco we witnessed during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings when Senate members were routinely hounded, and even chased into elevators by activists, who were roundly praised for their actions. Do something of a similar confrontational manner with a Democrat member, however, and there is a personal space violation.

But the point here in this video display is the abject refusal by Pressly to respond. She steadfastly refuses to condemn the violent actions. Consider the implication here. There is an individual from an established violent group, who intended to storm a government facility with weapons and violent intent, and here is a Democrat member of Congress refusing to condemn these actions. A sitting member of Congress refusing to condemn an attempted act of terrorism on a government facility is astounding to consider, let alone to witness.

Think of how often in the past two years we have seen Democrats coming forward to declare words which are supposedly promoting violence. Everything from innocuous comments to quoting Democrats verbatim are said to be violent rhetoric. What then do we say when a congresswoman refuses to step away from a violent attack? What is it called when they refuse to disavow a violent organization, and cannot see themselves to condemn an armed firebomb attack?

There is no chance either to attempt deflecting this, by saying she was not condoning it, and therefore you cannot say she supports it. The stock in trade with the Democrats and the media has long been that whenever a distaff member of the GOP says something controversial then party leaders are called on to condemn the words, or then it is declared that it is the platform of the entire party.

That means, according to their own established rules, that a Democrat in Congress refusing to condemn an act of violence they have effectively supported it. We are not even discussing controversial words here; this is an established act of terrorism on a government building.

And the Democrats are in support. This means that by extension Antifa is theirs to claim as well, and it is all thanks to the freshman class, The Squad that the party has been placing in front as the emblem of their party. This is all going so very wrong for the people who claim to have been swept into power during the past election.

Fraudster Shaun King Calls Antifa Firebomber a “Martyr” While Encouraging More Violence

This seems fine.

Shaun King, noted white guy, media personality, and self-styled #blacklivesmatter leader, praised the man who tried to firebomb an ICE facility as a “martyr.”

He deleted the tweets, but no worries, I’ve got the contents.

Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

His hero was John Brown -the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859.

This is what our country has come to. pic.twitter.com/y3STkjsp6o

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

I’m not sure what the facility being “for profit” matters. But hey, it’s a good buzz-phrase.

The people in the facility have been detained by ICE because they have lawful deportation orders against them. Comparing any aspect of this nut job, who was incited by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts, to John Brown is just ludicrous.

No one is being enslaved here and just like Holocaust comparisons, it’s incredibly insensitive and gross to make such comparisons. These are people who purposely chose to break the law and even then, most of them had the opportunity to choose self-deportation instead of remaining in custody.

King goes on to laud the domestic terrorist as a hero who’s now “arm in arm with John Brown,” because this kind of praising of nonsensical violence totally isn’t dangerous.

We are told that this is the final letter of Willem Van Spronsen – who was shot and killed by law enforcement as he attempted an attack on a for-profit refugee detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

It’s a beautiful, painful, devastating letter.

He wasn’t crazy -inaction is. pic.twitter.com/YMO1vhXCHn

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

So not acting is crazy? Then why is King not acting, instead choosing to hide behind Twitter? Is he a coward? Does he not really oppose Nazis? Inquiring minds and all that.

This is where Willem was murdered this weekend.

His actions will be called terrorism and people will call him crazy, but neither are true. His mind was very clear.

He is now “arm in arm with John Brown.”

These camps must be shut down. pic.twitter.com/wzQPEYC2j9

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

His actions are being called terrorism because they were. Firebombing a government facility to push a political narrative is the definition of terrorism.

But leave it to a man who’s such a fraudster that he’s been dubbed “Talcolm X” to make ridiculous tweets like this, appropriating slavery in the process and basically begging for more people to get killed.

Will any of the outlets he works for condemn him? Nah, of course not. Will the media call him out? Of course not. He’s not a Republican after all.

Republicans Are Right: Defense Department Must Delay Amazon’s Massive Cronyism

Westlake Legal Group pentagon-swamp-amazon.png-620x292 Republicans Are Right: Defense Department Must Delay Amazon’s Massive Cronyism Politics Outsourcing National Security Government Contracting Government Front Page Stories Front Page Department of Defense democrats Cybersecurity Cronyism corruption Congress Cloud Computing Business & Economy Barack Obama amazon web services amazon Abuse of Power

And then they should kill it.

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio recently became the latest Republican to weigh in on a huge hunk of cronyism the Department of Defense (DoD) is on the verge of almost certainly handing to uber-crony Amazon.

Rubio Calls for Delay of Defense Department’s $10 Billion Cloud Bid:

“Senator Marco Rubio is calling for the Defense Department to delay awarding its $10 billion cloud contract to ensure ‘a fair and open’ contest.

“Rubio, a Florida Republican, wrote a letter to National Security Adviser John Bolton asking him to direct the Pentagon to hold off on choosing a winner for the controversial project. In his letter, dated Thursday, Rubio said the project, known as the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure cloud or JEDI ‘suffers from a lack of competition’ and ‘will result in wasted taxpayer dollars.’

“‘Our warfighters deserve the best capability possible and the taxpayers deserve the best value possible,’ Rubio wrote. ‘Unfortunately, moving forward with the JEDI procurement will not further that goal.’…

“Rubio joins other key Republican lawmakers who have pressured the Trump administration to intervene in the Pentagon’s plan to choose just one winner for the deal.”

Other key Republican lawmakers?

Lawmakers Press Trump, Pentagon Over $10 Billion JEDI Cloud Deal:

“Two key Republican lawmakers are trying to pressure the Trump administration to intervene in the Pentagon’s plan to award $10 billion in cloud-computing services, citing concerns about the handling of the bid, which rivals say favors Amazon.com Inc.

“Representative Steve Womack of Arkansas, who serves on a panel that funds the department, wrote to President Donald Trump seeking his ‘personal attention’ for the award, saying that the president should approach the contract the same way he pushed for a lower price for new Air Force One planes being built by Boeing Co.

“Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who chairs the chamber’s Homeland Security Committee, asked in a June 24 letter to Acting Defense Secretary Mark Esper that the award — expected to come as soon as next month — be delayed until an inspector general investigation of the process is complete….

“‘The JEDI program has the potential to waste hundreds of millions of dollars on technology that may not be the latest and most secure,’ Womack wrote in his letter, which is dated June 12.

“He also criticized the bid for ‘limiting competition’ through the criteria for the award.

“In March, lawmakers responsible for defense funding ordered the Pentagon to justify making the contract a single award. Womack, a longtime skeptic of the contract, said Defense Department reports on the issue had been ‘completely unsatisfactory.’

“Johnson noted news reports on potential conflicts of interest raised in a lawsuit by Oracle Corp., which sued in federal court to stop the award. The Pentagon launched an internal review and an investigation by the department’s inspector general.”

Potential conflicts of interest?

Cronyism: Having Your Ex-Employees Award Government Contracts…

“…makes it much more likely you’ll get government contracts.

“Meet Deap Ubhi….”

The Barack Obama Administration’s Defense Department hired Ubhi to oversee the DoDs awarding of the JEDI cloud computing contract.

Where was Ubhi working when Obama came calling?  Amazon Web Services – Amazon’s cloud computing company.

Well isn’t that special.

When Ubhi clambered aboard the Obama DoD, JEDI was going to be awarded to multiple providers in an open and fair process.

And you certainly want multiple providers for any cloud backup gig.  Certainly one as big as the DoDs.

You, Gentle Reader, almost certainly have multiple backups currently running on your computer and your phone.

The military won’t send a paratrooper out of a plane with only one chute.

A reasonable cloud contract award would be: five companies – each responsible for 40% of the backup.  That’s 200% – meaning two companies for each byte of data.

Because a whole lot of very brave men and women will be betting their lives on getting the data they need – exactly when they need it.

That’s what the DoD contractor process was.

Enter Ex-Amazon employee Ubhi.

Suddenly, the multiple provider contract – was transmogrified to sole source.  Meaning only one provider – for the whole thing.  $10 billion worth of cloud backup work – all for only one company.

And the contractor description was rewritten – so only Amazon met the specifications.

Well isn’t that special.

Oh – Ubhi was finally outed for his titanic crony obnoxiousness.

At which point Ubhi absurdly declared himself recused – long after his damage had been done.

And two weeks after that, Ubhi quit the DoD – at which point he was promptly hired by…Amazon Web Services.  Or should we say RE-hired.

Well isn’t that special.

It is this titanic crony obnoxiousness to which these Republicans are rightly objecting.

It is only reasonable to delay the contract’s award – at least until, as Senator Johnson says, the Inspector General investigation is concluded.

At which point, the titanic crony obnoxiousness Amazon received will be officially documented.

At which point, the JEDI process should go from delayed – to dead.

Ted Cruz Confirms that He Is, In Fact, Beto O’Rourke’s Father

New York Times author Nate Cohn really liked Robert “Beto” O’Rourke. In fact, Cohn liked O’Rourke so much that he often compared him to one of cinema’s greatest and well known protagonists of all time, Luke Skywalker of the Star Wars series.

According to Cohn, O’Rourke was Luke, and the evil Darth Vader was Ted Cruz and both were fighting over the galactic senate…in Texas.

“For about a year now, I’ve been comparing Beto to Luke Skywalker,” tweeted Cohn. “He’s the famous hero, for Democrats, of an epic of good versus evil, against one of the greatest villians of all time. Darth Vader, Ted Cruz; Star Wars in a Galaxy far away; Texas Senate in the Trump midterm.”

Michael Li, Texas transplant and NYU redistricting expert, came to a realization. If O’Rourke is Luke, then that makes Cruz O’Rourke’s dad.

“Wait, Ted Cruz is Beto’s father??!” responded Li.

Cruz saw the tweet and wanted to clear the air.

The answer is “yes.”

Love him or hate him, Cruz is one of the funniest guys in congress and the internet showed its appreciation for it.

Cruz is a good natured dude, and this is definitely a good natured burn on O’Rourke, who Cruz defeated in the midterm elections despite all the Democrat’s horses and all the Democrat’s gender fluid persons of political affiliation coming together to try to push Cruz out of his Senate seat. It was a tough fight, but in the end, Cruz ended up being O’Rourke’s daddy.

If We’re Going by Her Rules, then AOC and Her “Squad” Condone the Firebombing Attacks

It’s an easy thing to say “I don’t condone resorting to violence” but apparently it’s too difficult to say for people like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This means that she condones violence…at least according to her own rules.

On Monday, the democratic socialist sweetheart of the Democratic party decided that she would lay down ground rules for Republicans about their stances should they not condemn President Donald Trump for his “racist” tweet that said that the congresswomen who rag on America constantly should go back to their countries of origin and fix the problems there.

According to AOC, if they don’t condemn then they condone. It’s a typical tactic of the left to claim that silence is violence, and true to form, AOC invoked the tried and true method of nailing intent to inaction.

“Until Republican officials denounce yesterday’s explicitly racist statements (which should be easy!), we sadly have no choice but to assume they condone it,” tweeted AOC. “It is extremely disturbing that the *entire* GOP caucus is silent. Is this their agenda?”

It’s not a particularly good route to take in political debate, though it’s not without it’s too-high success rate. What Ocasio-Cortez is doing is, without your permission, putting you into a camp of people opposed to the goodness of not being racist.

As I wrote on Monday, Trump’s tweet had it’s issues but one thing it wasn’t was racist. You can easily glean what Trump was trying to say in the tweet, which was that the girls could go back to the countries their families came from and experience what it truly is to deal with the problems they claim America has then come back here and tell everyone what to do. It had nothing to do with race, but attitude.

Regardless, the running narrative is that the tweets were about race and that the congresswomen should be kicked out of the country, and if the GOP won’t denounce Trump’s tweets then they also agree with the racism of Trump and are racist too.

Fine. Then let’s play that game.

As Streiff covered Monday, Ocasio-Cortez was asked point blank if she condemned the recent firebomb attack on an ICE facility. She wouldn’t give an answer. As the reporter said, it’s easy to do so, but still, AOC would not say a word.

By Ocasio-Cortez’s own rules, her silence speaks to her position. She condones the firebombing attacks according to her silence.

If she does condemn the attacks, then she’s more than welcome to just say so. She should condemn the attacks, denounce Antifa, and make it clear that any violence towards others is wrong. It’s not hard.

The same could be said of Rep. Ilhan Omar who refused to condemn Al-Qaeda on multiple occasions. I guess she condones the terrorist group that carried out 9/11?

Yet, she’s not doing that. She’s remaining silent and therefore she condones terrorism.

That’s not me saying that. That’s AOC.

Protestors Try to Block ICE Facility In Atlanta, Police Respond

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-8 Protestors Try to Block ICE Facility In Atlanta, Police Respond Protestors Politics police Illegal Immigrants ICE Facility Ice Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story deportations democrats delusional Crazy CBP Blocking ATLANTA

Protestors gathered outside an Atlanta, GA based ICE facility yesterday to protest things that aren’t actually happening.

Even in the case of overcrowding, that’s happening on the border, not at a regional ICE holding facility a thousand miles from there. In the case of this facility, the majority of those who are picked up and enter it are multiple violators and criminals. That doesn’t seem to matter though. It’s all about painting ICE as Nazis and there’s no one out there outside of the right-wing even pushing back on this craziness.

Some protestors decided it’d be a good idea to try to block ICE vehicles from leaving the facility. That didn’t go well.

Then we got this Emmy award winning flop job from a woman who refused to move.

She’s either the most unbalanced person in the history of humanity or that was incredibly fake. The green hair is how you know she’s a serious person though.

These are people that are so privileged, so starved by their delusions of grandeur that they have to go role play as freedom fighters. ICE are not Nazis and these are not concentration camps. Last I checked, Jews weren’t illegally entering Germany and claiming asylum, given a hearing, and allowed to return from where they came. These protestors are not battling real evil. They are battling their delusions. When ICE arrests someone, it’s because they have have an already adjudicated deportation order. That’s called doing their job. It should not be controversial to carry out lawful deportations of illegal immigrants, the vast majority of which have criminal records, didn’t show up for hearings, and/or who lied about their asylum claims.

If you make a sloppy tweet challenging Congressional members on their anti-American rhetoric, it elicits wall to wall wails of racism. Those same Congressional members accusing ICE of being the Waffen SS though? No big deal. The media just shrug and defend.

But that’s where we are. None of this makes sense and no one is demanding it make sense. It’s all about emotion. That has mayors around the country actually telling illegal immigrants, most of which have multiple criminal violations on their record, how to avoid capture by ICE. We are quickly approach pure anarchy when it comes to immigration enforcement and something needs to be done to pull back the reigns. If the DOJ charging some people federally for impeding law enforcement or helping harbor illegal aliens can deter this, then those are options that need to be on the table.

Like many, I was not thrilled to see President Donald Trump’s tweets on the four members of “The Squad,” the freshmen Congresswomen seemingly led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Whether you believe the tweets were racist or not, they represented Trump’s worst impulse: The need to be involved in the big political news.

Granted, it was a story that the media was not covering, but the moment he tweeted, it gave them cover. They could write about his “appalling” tweets, let the politicians hem and haw over the “racist” comments. It was as though Trump saw a circular firing squad and decided to run right into the middle of it.

However, something extraordinary happened on Monday. As he got into that circular firing squad, he tripped and the Democrats all fired on each other thinking they were hitting the President.

The President’s tweets did something extraordinary. They made Nancy Pelosi come to The Squad’s defense. She had to give them her support, giving up even more of her authority over them and granting them more power. They took to the podium and demanded Trump be impeached (for tweeting?). Impeachment, of course, is something Pelosi has been trying to avoid since she became the Speaker.

Their press conference was the culmination of everything they have been doing since they arrived in Congress. They were the victims of the Big Bad Republican President. They continued to play to the very extreme. They wanted everyone to know their feelings were hurt. More than anything, it appeared to be a show of weakness as they stomped their feet like children because someone said something mean about them.

The American public is aware of Trump’s character. He is a known quantity. However, these four Congresswomen are becoming the most known Democrats in the country, and if you think Trump’s approval numbers are bad, you should see theirs.

The findings:

  • Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
  • Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.

Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.

  • Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
  • “Socialism is toxic to these voters,” said the top Democrat.

That’s not good. They are scaring the swing voters. Trump is a known quantity to them. They know who he is. They don’t approve of his character or his statements. However, his inability to control himself on Twitter is nothing compared to the fear instilled in those voters when they see a growing trend toward socialism in Trump’s opposition.

So, you can say Trump made a mistake when he tweeted. I do, in fact, and I honestly wish he’d stop tweeting every time someone he has an opinion about is in the news.

However, the Democrats clearly want you to hold their beer as they attempt to outdo him. It’s incredible, and it’s the reason they are going to struggle in 2020.

Joe Biden, Dazed and Confused, Promises If You Like Your Insurance, You Can Keep Your Insurance

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-1-620x317 Joe Biden, Dazed and Confused, Promises If You Like Your Insurance, You Can Keep Your Insurance warren Politifact Politics Obamacare Lie of the Year Joe Biden healthcare harris gaffe Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Barack Obama

You may recall back in 2009 when former President Obama proclaimed that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” Because the media felt the need to fluff the former President at all times, that obvious fib went nearly unchecked outside of right-wing sources for nearly five years. Politifact even dutifully gave it a “half true” rating twice. But by 2013, as Obamacare finally kicked in fully, they finally saw the light and rated it their “lie of the year.”

Obama even went so far as to admit he lied, in very diplomatic terms of course.

In announcing the fix, Obama again conceded he had exaggerated. “There is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate,” he said. “It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise.  We put a grandfather clause into the law, but it was insufficient.”

Given that Joe Biden was Obama’s VP at the time and helped spread the falsehood, he obviously learned his lesson and wouldn’t repeat the same lie again, right?

Nah, he just repeated the same lie again.

Are we back in 2009?

Did no one think to tell him this was a bad idea? Perhaps they did though but Joe Biden has developed a reputation in his young campaign of not listening to aids (sounds familiar) and choosing to just wing it. But come on, it’s nearly a word for word reproduction of Obama’s lie of the year. This should have been flashing red light for Biden to avoid. Instead, he stumbles right into it.

Some apologists may say things will be different this time, but nah, no chance. His proposed plan, which includes a public option and further restrictions on insurance, will undoubtedly produce even worse results than Obamacare for those with private and employer plans. As the market shifts and more people take the free healthcare option, insurance providers will be forced to drop people, raise prices, and ultimately may end up out of business. There’s no scenario where everyone just gets to “keep their healthcare” if they like it.

This smacks of him promising to cure cancer. It’s nonsensical, political garbage. There’s nothing worse than when someone running for office makes promises they know they can’t keep and Biden isn’t quick stupid enough to not realize what he was saying. Or maybe he is? Perhaps he’s just going senile and it didn’t dawn on him how big of a gaffe this is?

I don’t know, but what I do know is that Biden is really bad at campaigning. I’m not going to bury him just yet, but with Warren and Harris hot on his heels, the inevitability of Biden has vanished. He’s got a dogfight ahead and I don’t think “sleepy” Joe is up for it.
