Elizabeth Warren had a Hot Mic Moment during a Post-Debate Interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper

Returning from a commercial break during a post-debate interview on CNN, Elizabeth Warren and Jake Tapper looked amused. When the mic went live, Warren had a playful smile on her face and was heard telling Tapper “I can’t say that.”

Come on Elizabeth. Tell us what you can’t say.

It was nothing that would damage her politically, rather it humanized her.

Stuck in my head is a scene from a video her campaign released shortly after Warren had declared her candidacy. In what was truly an embarrassing moment, Warren was being live-streamed in her kitchen when she decided she’d have a beer. She says, “Hold on a second, I’m gonna get me a beer.” She gets herself a beer and tells her viewers, “I’mma pull up a stool” as she takes a swig.

Reminiscent of a 2008 video showing Hillary Clinton tossing back a shot of whiskey in an Indiana bar, Warren was trying to show that she was “just like everybody else.” The only word that comes to mind is cringeworthy.

So, seeing her in an unguarded moment sharing a light-hearted joke with Tapper softened her. Overall, Warren had a very good night and this moment only helped her.

Tulsi Gabbard Slams CNN at Debate, Exposes the Incredible Incoherence of the Democrat Position On Syria

Westlake Legal Group f1c61773-57dd-4e5a-96c7-3045358f05e5-620x317 Tulsi Gabbard Slams CNN at Debate, Exposes the Incredible Incoherence of the Democrat Position On Syria tulsi gabbard Syria Politics Obama Administration mistake Kurds Joe Biden Islamists Incoherant Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Elizabeth Warren elections Election democrats debate CNN assad Allow Media Exception Al Qaeda 2020

While some on the right can’t stand Tulsi Gabbard because “she’s a Russian agent” and all that hysteria, I actually appreciate that she tries to make coherent, consistent points. Do I agree with her on much of anything she says on policy. No, but there’s something to be said about not talking out of both sides one’s mouth and that’s exactly what we saw on Syria from every candidate on the stage last night minus Gabbard.

Let’s take this clip as an example.

Now, while most will focus on the slam on CNN (and it is nice), I’m much more interested in the separation she puts between herself and the other Democrats. While they all struggled to incoherently explain why they spent years demanding we leave the Middle East but why we now must remain in Syria to fight a NATO ally (a sucky one, but one nonetheless until action is taken), Gabbard at least gets to the heart of the matter.

The war against Assad, just like the war in Libya, was a ridiculous miscalculation. Attempting to change the regime in Syria, while giving warm and fuzzies to those in the foreign policy establishment in Washington, only helped create and exacerbate a humanitarian crisis and setup a situation where we were either going to still have Assad or end up with Al Qaeda aligned Islamists taking power. How is that a choice we had any business sticking our nose in?

Joe Biden tried to lie about his previous position, insisting the war was never about removing Assad. A reporter from The Washington Post said he was “right.” That’s simply not true.

Regime change was the official government policy of the Obama administration for at least the first three years of the civil war in Syria. We all remember the demands for Assad to step down and the saber rattling about how he will go one way or the other. The problem was that by helping propagate that civil war, we fed into a situation that would take the lives of over 500,000 people, including 50,000 children. No one seems to want to own that. Everyone in Washington wants to pretend that it’s not possible for us to have made a bad situation worse, yet that’s exactly what we did.

I’m sure by writing that, I’ll be accused of being an Assad apologist because critical thinking isn’t allowed on much of the right when it comes to foreign policy issues. The reality is that unlike the myriad of neoconservative blue check-marks on Twitter, I actually have family in Syria. This isn’t a matter of ideology for me. It’s a matter of accepting that sometimes there are no perfect solutions and recognizing that we can indeed make matters worse. Minorities in Syria (like my family) feared Islamist rebel groups far more than they feared Assad, who before the outbreak of war was one of the more secular, benign dictators in the region.

Tulsi Gabbard is trying to make a fairly simple point that takes the entirety of what has transpired into account. Perhaps she really does just love Assad, but that’s a weak minded argument to make against her. Her position has at least been consistent. She was against getting involved from the beginning and she’s been shown to be more right than wrong on the matter. The rest of the Democrat field flailing about, now wanting to remain in Syria (and Biden even said he wants a surge last night back into Northern Syria) after initially screaming to get out, shows just how non-thinking most of these people are. At one point last night, Elizabeth Warren argued we should leave troops in Syria and then a few seconds later said she wanted to pull all troops from the Middle East. You make sense of that. We also saw contradictory bantering like this.

I could keep going about the intricacies here (see Mike Ford’s explainers for more information), but I’m certain everyone is so set in stone on this issue that it’ll make little difference. What I will say is this. The smartest among us are often the dumbest. Just because someone has “expert” on their chyron does not mean they actually know what they are talking about. The United States miscalucated on Libya and Syria. That’s the point Gabbard has been consistently making, even when the rest of her party was cheer-leading those interventions. That may not matter to the talking head sitting in an MSNBC studio today, but it should matter to the rest of us, and whether you agree with Gabbard or not, at least be intellectually honest enough to admit that the war in Syria didn’t start in 2017.

Biden Continues to Gaffe ‘Expodentially’ But Reveals the Real Problem With Dem Policy

Screenshot from this video

Joe Biden continued to stumble over his words and have trouble explaining himself during Tuesday’s debate.

At one point, he even created a new word, “expodentially.”

Huh? Not to mention, that there is no proof to support whatever else he seems to be trying to say there, that registration helps reduce criminal use of a gun.

Biden confused a lot of people during another segment when first he said he would cut the capital gains tax, then he said he would double it. He then also spoke about “clipping coupons in the stock market.” See if you can figure out what he’s saying here.

From Washington Examiner:

“Demonizing wealth … I talked about how you get things done. The way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now. The idea, we have to start rewarding work, not just wealth. I would eliminate the capital gains tax,” Biden said, before immediately changing his tune. “I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest rate of 39.5%. I would double it, because, guess what? Why in God’s name should someone who is clipping coupons in the stock market make, in fact, pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, like I said, who is a school teacher and a firefighter?”

“Clipping coupons in the stock market?” Some tried to interpret it.

But beyond the troubling continuing gaffes, stumbles and incoherence, there’s another problem.

When Democrats actually get around to talking about policy rather than just attacking President Donald Trump, they are so glaringly economically wrong.

They want to punish the wealthy for being wealthy, even Biden as he makes clear here. And yet that punishment, with more capital gains taxes, wealth tax and other taxes will affect all of us, would kill jobs and destroy the economy that the GOP and Trump have smartly cultivated with lower taxes, less regulation, the path that has led to our present economic boon.

That’s a lot of harm they’re promising. Expodentially.

Winners and Losers of the Fourth Democratic Debate

The race to see who can go the farthest left (and also Tulsi Gabbard) got hot again Tuesday night as CNN and the New York Times co-hosted another Democratic debate.

With the candidate pool dwindling and the need for separation between the candidates increasing, the long knives came out, and strangely enough, everyone was gunning for Elizabeth Warren. Joe Biden was, for the most part, allowed to stand aside and let other candidates attack each other. How did it play out? Here are your winners and losers from the debate.

The Winners: Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders

Elizabeth Warren, meanwhile, was seemingly everyone’s target. Biden targeted her. Kamala Harris targeted her. Tulsi Gabbard and others seemed to think that she was the candidate to beat during the debate, and so they tried. However, none of the blows really stuck. She also had some help from the producers of the debate, covering for Warren against an attack from Gabbard in particular. Her ability to withstand the attacks helped her image a bit, and she is definitely going to come out at least breaking even here.

Pete Buttigieg stood out more than I think people expected. His shot at Beto O’Rourke knocked the Texas Democrat out. He scrapped with Warren and didn’t come across as foolish as others did. He appears now to be vying for the very base that Joe Biden has, and he looked very good doing it. If Biden falters, right now it’s not difficult to see those voters moving to Buttigieg.

Bernie Sanders was very Bernie Sanders, and that did not hurt him. In fact, a little added sympathy from his heart issues late last week helped him perhaps dodge some attacks from the others on the stage. Nothing really stood out, but like Warren and Biden, “not losing” a debate with their level of support and backing them is as good as a win IF no one else stands out. And… no one did.

The Losers: Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Kamala Harris

Joe Biden was, once again, seemingly left alone for the most part. Up until the end of the debate, he wasn’t really hit too hard, and even after the divisions over Medicare For All, Biden’s record in the Senate and as Vice President, and a rather chauvinist attempt to take credit for Elizabeth Warren’s time as head of the consumer finance agency she touted as a major accomplishment, Biden still stood tall. The problem is that all of this happened to Biden as an afterthought. Everyone was focused on Warren. Everyone was worried about Sanders’ health. Everyone was looking for Buttigieg and others to step up. And no one really cared how well Biden did. That is a bad thing for him.

Beto O’Rourke has a glass jaw, and everyone knows it now. When Pete Buttigieg landed a full-on blow, saying “I don’t need a lesson in courage from you,” it was pretty much over for the furriest Democratic candidate. Beto came off as weak and, when not talking about guns, he frankly appeared to lack the backbone necessary to advocate as equally for his other unconstitutional pursuits. If he doesn’t fold this week, then he’s even more foolish than we knew.

Kamala Harris really seems to think that “We should get Donald Trump banned from Twitter” is the key plank in her platform that will knock Warren out of the lead. She attacked Warren for not joining her in calling on Twitter to ban Trump from the social media site. The attack was so pathetic that you could actually hear the crowd actively not caring. Harris at this point brings nothing to the table that no one else brings and brings better.

Booker is much the same way. His responses to the questions felt flat. The excitement in his voice was shared only by him. No one seems to really think that Booker is that great of a candidate, but he still somehow manages to make the debate stages and completely underwhelm.

The Also-Rans: Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer, Pete Buttigieg

Tom Steyer…

What on God’s green earth is Tom Steyer even doing here? He exists on this debate stage solely to make people wish he didn’t. There is no reason for him here. He’s not even a good distraction from the other candidates. He’s just… there.

The other candidates didn’t do poorly. They just didn’t have a winning performance. For most of these candidates, it’s time to pack up and go home. It’s not happening. Will they listen? Probably not.

CNN Gets Caught Stacking Their Town Hall Audience for Elizabeth Warren

CNN has gotten caught again. They failed to disclose that one of their soft-ball questioners was actually a sycophant for the candidate they were addressing.

During an “LGBTQ Town Hall” last week, Elizabeth Warren was treated with kid gloves and had questions teed up for her to knock out of the left-wing park. The event itself was absolutely bonkers, with some Democrats recommending punishing churches for not endorsing same-sex marriage. Other insanity ran the gambit from transgender issues to Joe Biden trying way too hard to show he’s down with the gay.

At one point, Warren was treated to a question in which she seemed to have the “zinger” ready to go. Now, we know why. The man was a max donor to her campaign and likely coordinated with her prior.

Look at the love in that guys eyes.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo introduced Morgan Cox at the Thursday town hall as “the chair of the Human Rights Campaign board of directors” who was part of “a real estate investment firm in Dallas, Texas.” Cox asked Warren what she would say if “a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’”

“Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that and I’m going to say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that,’” Warren said, before adding to uproarious laughter, “Assuming you can find one.”

The CNN chyron described Cox as “Chair, Human Rights Campaign Board of Directors.” It could have just as easily identified Cox as “Donor, Elizabeth Warren.”

I’m trying to figure out why she would “assume it’s a guy?” Are women incapable of holding religious beliefs on marriage, because I know plenty that do. I’m sure they’d be surprised to learn they don’t actually believe what they believe. That part of her answer was obviously already thought out and it shows how much a try hard Warren is. Perhaps I’m just naive, but this pander-rific campaign she’s running, where she pretends men are the bane of existence, has to be turning some people off outside of the socialist throes.

Absolutely nothing is authentic about her approach. Every line is carefully crafted and she only puts herself in position to receive questions from friendly figures. Of course, CNN’s Chris Cuomo was just such a figure and was practically drooling the whole time. Warren makes Democrats feel smart so they adore her. She’s the “intellectual” choice in their eyes.

Back to this audience member, there’s just noway it was a coincidence that a max donor to her campaign ended up getting to ask her something she was clearly ready for. The question is whether CNN is directly coordinating this stuff or whether they are just passively allowing it to happen. I’d put money on the former. There’s no reason to believe that liberal network is above doing such a thing, especially when many see Joe Biden as a sinking ship. They don’t want to feel the Bern and Warren is their gal.

Anti Green New Deal Ad Running Tonight During Democrats Debate.

Screenshot: Twitter video

Now you have a reason to watch the “Jeff Zucker Presents: A Totally Unbiased Election Debate By CNN” because of CNN’s need for ad revenue. A group that is doing an ad the blows up the dream of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the New Green Deal, will air tonight.

You know this will make all the Democrats watching so happy.

According to Fox News

A new ad highlighting the “Green New Deal’s” (GND) financial toll will debut as Democrats take the debate stage on Tuesday night.

The ad, created by the right-leaning Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), will portray for voters a stark contrast between life under “common sense energy policies” and an economy “strangled” by the GND.

Tuesday’s ads will run before, during, and after the Democratic debate on CNN, but it’s just the start of a month-long campaign that will escalate with more than $250,000 in ad spending.

As I wrote earlier this week here at Red State about climate change or warming or cooling, these people supporting this nonsense have been acting weird and saying this stuff for years.

Climate Protester Climbs On Top Of An Airplane And Does Not Help The Cause.

CLIMATE FLASHBACK: In 1978 Mr. Spock Told Us Another Ice Age Would Be Here By Now.

I’m glad a group is taking the time and investing some coin to do an ad during a debate where all the candidates up on stage tonight will probably trip all over themselves to say the wackiest thing about climate change. I honestly am waiting for one of them to propose plugging up volcanoes and saying they support a Federal program to do so. #VolcanoesKill

I hope that Competitive Enterprise Institute will help organize and rally people to their cause in other ways. Possibly joining with other groups to start to roll back some of the nonsense that A.O.C and her happy band of Green new Deal bots are screaming about. They have been effective for 40 years and the time to push back is now.

In the meantime enjoy tonight’s debate (Really, I’m SERIOUS) and let me know what you think fo the ad at the info below.

Babylon Bee Dunks on LeBron James After Basketball Superstar Said Daryl Morey “Could Have Waited a Week”

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James partakes in warm ups before an NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in Portland, Ore., Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018. (AP Photo/Craig Mitchelldyer)

Nick wrote this morning about the appalling statement the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James gave on the Daryl Morey Hong Kong tweet controversy.

Here’s a quick recap of what James said in pregame comments Monday night at the Staples Center in L.A. about Morey’s comments, via The Hill:

“I don’t want to get into a feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke,” James said. “So many people could have been harmed, not just financially, but physically, emotionally, spiritually.”

After the comment sparked a firestorm on social media, James clarified his remarks.

“I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet,” James tweeted. “I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk about that.”

James expanded on his thoughts in another tweet, where he stated Morey “could have waited” a week to make his comments in support of Hong Kong’s protesters because “My team and this league just went through a difficult week”:

James’ response was a really, really bad look for a guy who has been treated as though he is the “wokest” of all NBA players. James has definitely not been shy about using his platform as a basketball superstar and future Hall of Famer to show support for Colin Kaepernick’s NFL kneeling, campaign for Hillary Clinton, and declare that people who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 were “uneducated.”

He even tweeted this MLK, Jr. quote in January 2018:

Because James has clearly changed his tune on the injustices of the world and the need to speak out against those injustices, the Babylon Bee decided to deliver a dunk of their own against him for his staggering ignorance on Hong Kong as well as his woke hypocrisy:

LOS ANGELES, CA—NBA superstar Lebron James recently told reporters that while he respects what Rosa Parks did for civil rights by refusing to give up her seat on a bus in 1955 Alabama, he thinks her protest “probably could have waited a week.”
[…]
James, an expert in geopolitical relations as well as the game of basketball, went on to explain that people in power stand to lose a lot of money when protesters challenge the status quo.

Perfect.

Make sure to read the whole thing.

#ExposeCNN Part 2 (Full): CNN Leadership Picks Favorites Among 2020 Democratic Candidates, Least Fave is Tulsi Gabbard

Westlake Legal Group CNN-log-620x310 #ExposeCNN Part 2 (Full): CNN Leadership Picks Favorites Among 2020 Democratic Candidates, Least Fave is Tulsi Gabbard Whistleblower Cary Poarch tulsi gabbard President Trump Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism Joe Biden jeff zucker Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats CNN’s Media Coordinator Christian Sierra CNN Campaigns Andrew Yang Amy Klobuchar Allow Media Exception 2020

 

On Tuesday, Project Veritas released Part 2 of their #ExposeCNN series. Whistleblower Cary Poarch tells viewers that he was a registered Democrat when he began working at CNN. During the 2016 Democratic primaries, he said he had campaigned and voted for Bernie Sanders.

Poarch was able to record CNN President Jeff Zucker’s daily 9am meetings where he issued his daily guidance to CNN staff members.

At one of these meetings, Zucker asked CNN Vice President and Political Director David Chalian if he thought CNN was taking Andrew Yang seriously enough.

Chalian replied, “Yeah, I mean, I think we – I don’t know why we wouldn’t take him – you know, most of these candidates seriously. We should definitely be looking at why Andrew Yang is resonating…Do I think he’s a likely nominee? No, I don’t.”

In another, Zucker suggested that CNN do a segment on Democratic candidate Kamala Harris’ call for President Trump’s Twitter account to be suspended. He says, “It’s not going to happen [Kamala winning the nomination], but I think it’s a good segment in the show… Not going to happen, but it’s a good talking – it’s a good segment.”

Nick Neville, CNN Media Coordinator is asked why the network didn’t broadcast Biden’s entire rally. He answers, “They probably think it’s boring… people would change the channel.” He’s right about that.

In another clip, several employees are discussing the network’s treatment of several of the candidates.

CNN’s Media Coordinator Christian Sierra, who we heard from yesterday, said it was unfair to focus on only a few of the candidates. He is asked, “Who is CNN unfairer against right now on the debate?”

Sierra responds, “Um, I think probably Yang and Klobuchar. One of the lesser ones. Just cause they’re going to talk about Biden more than Warren and Sanders. They’re not going to mention others…They want to cover the people who are on the top. They don’t want to cover the bottom.”

Poarch asks, “So, who does he [Zucker] want to be president?”

Sierra answers, “Here’s the thing, I don’t know. I think he wants a Democrat but I don’t think he has any particular favorite. Well, ‘cause here’s the thing, he donated before to Kamala Harris when she was running for Senate in California. Um, but, I think he kind of likes Pete, but I can tell he also likes Biden and Warren.”

Poarch asked Sierra if Zucker likes Biden. Sierra tells him he thinks so.

Then, Evan Perez, Senior Justice Correspondent weighs in, “Now I’ll tell you this. Joe Biden has a problem. Because his son was trading on his name. It looks bad. It smells bad. It’s not illegal. Nothing is illegal about it…How do you go and say that Donald Trump is the problem? Get him out of here, and convict him, when your son is doing the same shit.” (I posted about this exchange here.)

As for some of the other candidates:

The whistleblower asks Sierra “Who does CNN like?”

He tells him, “I think they like Warren a lot.”

Sierra continues, “They don’t like Tulsi. They don’t like Tulsi Gabbard. Because she supports Assad and she’s not taking a conventional route when it comes to one policy, stuff like that.”

Poarch sums it up by saying, “I just want us to have a free and fair election. That’s what it’s all about. Like we get information presented to us. We can, we can pull the lever for whoever we want. Again, left, right center, whatever. That’s the American dream. That’s what it should be. I don’t need to have some ideology shoved down my throat. That’s twisted in a way.”

I don’t think there was anything especially surprising or egregious about Part 2 of #ExposeCNN. The network’s leadership and staffers are merely stating their opinions about the field of 2020 hopefuls. Why would they want to cover unpopular candidates who have little chance of winning the nomination as often as the more viable among them? CNN is a business and businesses work for profits.

Part 1, which I posted about on Monday (here) had more meaty exchanges. Staffers discussed Zucker’s hatred and his “personal vendetta” for President Trump. In one segment, a staffer is heard saying he couldn’t believe CNN hasn’t taken down Trump yet. In another, an employee describes the scene at CNN on the night of Trump’s 2016 victory as funeral-like.

Zucker is heard making an incredibly tone-deaf remark about Fox News. He said:

I think what’s going on in America now is really fundamentally the result of years of fake news, conspiracy nonsense from Fox News. The fake conspiracy nonsense that Fox has spread for years is now deeply embedded into American society and frankly, that is beyond destructive for America.

He is also recorded telling staffers that it’s time to turn on Lindsay Graham. “So, I wanna say on the Lindsay Graham front. I know that there’s a lot of people at CNN who are friendly with Lindsay Graham. Time to knock that off and call him out.”

So far, I would say Project Veritas is 1 – 1. Part 1 was fairly interesting, but Part 2 was a bit of a wet weekend.

We’ll see what Part 3 brings.

Stay tuned.

Hunter Biden Confirms Joe Biden Is a Liar

You may recall a previous dust up between Joe Biden and Donald Trump in which the President shared a meme showing Biden insisting he had never discussed his son’s foreign dealings. In what was one of the better trolls of the year, Nickelback then came on singing “look at this photograph” while showing a picture of Biden, Hunter, and the executive from Ukrainian company in question.

If that wasn’t dispositive enough that the elder Biden had lied, we now have an even better source: Hunter Biden.

A “brief exchange” means Joe Biden was aware. There’s noway to get around that fact. Originally, he claimed he had never spoken to Hunter about it. At this point, it’s safe to call that a lie.

I first documented this contradiction based on another previous Hunter quote in an article back in September.

Now, there is no doubt. Hunter has once again confirmed he spoke with his father about the board position with Burisma. This would have come at the same time Biden was front manning foreign policy in the region. In fact, Hunter flew with his father on Air Force 2 to the area before he managed to land to gig. Just a coincidence I’m sure.

It was after that when Joe Biden pressured the Ukrainians to fire a prosecutor looking into Burisma by threatening to withhold aid (that was apparently not an impeachable offense at the time).

To put an even bigger capstone on this, Hunter Biden also admits in the interview that he was using his father’s influence to enrich himself.

Well, that’s obvious. I guess this is his way of checking his privilege?

The funny thing is, if you check blue-checkmark Twitter right now, all the “journalists” are sharing quotes like this.

It must be nice to be a Democrat. In an interview where Hunter confirmed his father lied, the valiant journalists among us are deciding to focus on Hunter’s denials instead, painting them as legitimate. Color me shocked.

This scandal isn’t going away. Biden should have just owned it from the beginning instead of painting himself into a corner. At this point, Elizabeth Warren has to be the presumptive frontrunner. Trump, for all his flaws, has managed to hang this around Joe Biden’s neck to devastating effect.
