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.

After notifying the American people that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead, he was asked by a reporter if he has “notified the congressional leaders about this? Pelosi, Schiff, Mitch McConnell?”

President Trump replied:

We notified some. Others are being notified now as I speak. We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before. There’s no country in the world that leaks like we do. And Washington is a leaking machine. And I told my people we will not notify them until our great people are out, not just in, but out. I don’t want to have them greeted with firepower like you wouldn’t believe. So, we were able to get in. It was top secret…

A leak could have cost the deaths of all of them.

President Trump was right not to notify them ahead of time. They can’t be trusted. This is a group of people who have a vested interest in preventing Donald Trump from getting a win, especially a foreign policy win.

Democrats are notorious leakers. They impose strict secrecy rules around their impeachment inquiry meetings, then they strategically leak just the right sound bites, usually taken out of context.

And, coming on the heels of the sharp rebuke Trump has faced over his decision to withdraw troops from Northern Syria, this moment is all the sweeter. Would you trust Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi to put country before politics? I wouldn’t.

Given the choice between the deaths of 50 anonymous U.S. soldiers or watching Trump take a victory lap, I believe they would choose the former. And then Pelosi would appear on cable and ask Americans to pray for our fallen soldiers and their families.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz delivered his completed FISA Abuse report to Attorney General William Barr over six weeks ago. Democratic leaders know exactly what’s in it. Yet, there hasn’t been a single leak which I find to be extraordinary. If there were some good news in there for Democrats and/or some bad news for Republicans, there would have been a leak.

That’s how the Democrats operate. They just can’t help themselves.

Here’s to our troops!

President Trump: Al-Baghdadi “Died Like a Dog” When American Commandos Stormed His Hideout

Yesterday, US Special Operations Forces carried out a raid that resulted in the death of the titular leader is ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. This is President Trump’s press conference on the event.

Big picture here is that regardless of the press release war, there is obviously coordination going on between the US and Russia and Syria and Turkey to eradicate ISIS so that they can get on with the serious business of killing one another.

This raid marks a stark departure from the Obama era of killing everything that moved with drone strikes. I’m not opposed to killing people who need it but you are always better off capturing senior people than killing them. While al-Bagdadi blew himself up, the raid site was exploited. Prisoners were taken. Documents and electronic devices seized. This will lead to a cascade of raids and attacks based on this information.

Strategically, this probably will be seen as the last gasp of ISIS. It was already nearly eradicated. Funding and volunteers were drying up. When al-Baghdadi was killed he was hiding in a city in a hostile area. Hardly the mark of someone who is about to make a comeback. I’ve never been convinced ISIS mattered, but if it once did, it no longer does.

This take by an Obama toadie is just bullsh**. This operation was possible because despite the press’s brainless jihad about Russia, sane people maintained a relationship with them that allowed US overflight to get our assault force in and out. That counts.

The circumstances of al-Baghdadi’s death–described as only Trump can describe things–is not going to help his cause

This, like taking out bin Laden, is a great publicity exercise but probably of limited import. Both al Qaeda and ISIS were on the run and on their last legs when their leaders were taken out. Both of their leaders were isolated and in hiding. They will both limp around for awhile longer but they are a spent force. But the good news about radical Islam is that there is always another transnational terrorist movement in the making, so we’ll be doing this same press conference again in a few years.

Trump Announces Killing of ISIS Leader Baghdadi, Media/Left Downplay It, Attack Trump, With Worst Reaction From Clapper

Screenshot from this video

President Donald Trump announced a major accomplishment today – the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

From CBS:

Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” the president said. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.”

The president said he watched much of the raid from the White House Situation Room, alongside the secretary of defense and other top military and national security officials. Mr. Trump said U.S. forces engaged in a firefight and al-Baghdadi fled to a tunnel alongside three of his children. As U.S. operators and K-9 units pursued him in the tunnel, al-Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest, killing himself and the children. Mr. Trump said al-Baghdadi was “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.”

“Baghdadi and the losers who worked for him, and losers they are, they had no idea what they were getting into. In some cases, they were very frightened puppies,” the president said. “He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place. God bless America.”

Trump praised U.S. troops and thanked others in the region who had helped in the effort. There were no human injuries on the American side, but one U.S. military dog was injured.

What a great thing to finally get Baghdadi! And this is after decimating ISIS as a state for which media has never given Trump proper credit.

People should be celebrating and most are. But then there are those who even with such an important event, can’t stop with their efforts to find some way to attack Trump on it. He could cure cancer and they would say he didn’t do it soon enough.

Yup, they’re already there.

My gosh, Harwood just can’t stop digging.

They just can’t leave it go, still pumping that hoax.

Someone want to explain to this guy that Assad is the leader of Syria? And that Putin/Russia have been in Syria for years, with a permanent base there since 2015? Guess who was president then?

Perhaps the worst reaction was that of former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who suggested that the killing of al-Baghdadi might “galvanize” ISIS. “What is going to be interesting is to the extent to which this negatively affects ISIS or does it galvanize ISIS, the remnants of ISIS,” he said on CNN’s State of the Union. Is he joking? No, he isn’t, he’s freaking out about what’s to come next for him in the Durham investigation. As he should.

Here’s the right way to respond.

Trump Nukes Kamala Harris On Twitter Over Attempted Boycott.

Just when you think you have Donald Trump figured out and can put him in a box, he zigs zags and makes you stop and wonder what in the hell is going on. This time it is with people that allegedly he hates and wants them all to die.

Except that he also wants to there shorten prison sentences or eliminate them altogether. That has made Kamal Harris very mad being she put a LOT of people away in her time as a prosecutor in California.

From Fox News

 

President Trump took a rare swipe at 2020 Democratic hopeful Kamala Harris on Saturday, criticizing the California senator for boycotting a South Carolina criminal justice forum in protest of the group giving an award to him.

“Badly failing presidential candidate @KamalaHarris will not go to a very wonderful largely African American event today because yesterday I received a major award, at the same event, for being able to produce & sign into law major Criminal Justice Reform legislation, which will greatly help the African American community (and all other communities), and which was unable to get done in past administrations despite a tremendous desire for it,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

The president’s tweets came after he received the Bipartisan Justice Award from the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center for his efforts to pass the First Step Act, which grants early release to thousands of nonviolent offenders who are currently serving time in federal prisons.

Trump has by and large not mentioned Kamala and the other dwarfs running on the Democratic side. He has had a lot of fun picking on Joe and Bernie and the fake Indian and left it at that. However, Kamala who once was considered the shining star of this primary season has never fully recovered from the shot that Tulsi Gabbard landed on her in the Detroit debate about her lock up record.

I will admit that when Trump met with Kim Kardashian about commuting the sentence of a lady that had clearly served way more time than she should have, I thought it was a mere publicity stunt of two reality T.V. stars meeting. That has proven to not be the case.

When Van Jones showed up at CPAC and praised Trump and conservatives for this I knew something positive was happening. Van Jones Praises Conservatives on Criminal Justice Reform: ‘You Are Stealing My Issue’

Kamala probably was thinking that her law & order cred was going to get her major props and so far it has been a dud. Her at first instinct of boycotting this event and trying to look holier than thou does not look like it will work and might not even last a full news cycle. Stunts like this are meant to raise your profile and so far it looks like it has sent her into deeper muck. Now that she has changed her mind she looks even more indecisive.

There are only 99 days left until the Iowa caucuses. Kamala better get in front as many people as possible or her campaign is going to be dead on arrival before next February.

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?

CNN’s Jake Tapper Gets Fact-Checked On Air By Joe Kennedy

Westlake Legal Group jake-tapper-620x349 CNN’s Jake Tapper Gets Fact-Checked On Air By Joe Kennedy sham Senate scif republicans Politics media bias joe kennedy Jake Tapper Intel Committee impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Fact Check democrats CNN clown bias Allow Media Exception adam schiff

CNN’s Jake Tapper has always held a special place in the hearts of some conservatives. Desperate to feel like part of the club, a certain sect on the right long for his retweets and snarky acceptance. Even when he steps out of bounds, they lay off just to be sure to not burn any precious bridges. Because of this they paint a mythical picture of Tapper just being a straight news guy. Never mind his long history of partisanship or the fact that he’s a Democrat, by golly he’s fair.

Sen. Joe Kennedy was on Tapper’s show yesterday and got a taste of his fairness. It ended in Tapper making a ludicrous claim and getting fact-checked.

The Daily Caller provides some excerpts.

“But the Senate intelligence committee, run by your colleague Republican Senator Richard Burr, also has a great many hearings and depositions completely in private,” Tapper said. “Completely in private.”

“That’s true,” Kennedy nodded. “That’s true.”

“And Democrats are allowed to participate …” Tapper continued.

“That is classified information,” Kennedy interrupted. “They are dealing with classified information.”

“Not everything,” said the CNN anchor.

I want to stop here because you’d think a newsman like Tapper would understand the difference between the Senate Intel Committee, which by definition deals with classified intelligence, and an “impeachment inquiry,” which is political by its very definition. You know what else the Senate Intel Committee doesn’t do? Selectively leak from every interview in order to push a public, partisan narrative.

Tapper might have an argument if Schiff weren’t leaking like a sieve to bolster his political position. The claim that things must be kept secret, even while these leaks occur doesn’t pass the smell test. Has Tapper asked Schiff during one his near hourly CNN hits why it’s acceptable for a 15 page opening statement to end up in the public domain but not the other 10 hours of testimony which contain all the context? Of course he hasn’t.

Eventually, Joe Kennedy would set the record straight.

“Almost all of it is,” said Kennedy. “There is no classified information here.”

The fact that Tapper was even trying to make that line of argument shows how biased he is. The fact is that absolutely nothing Schiff is doing in the SCIF requires secrecy. There is no classified information being exchanged or studied. He’s using the SCIF as a political shield and the media are happy to play along. Trying to compare that to the Senate Intel Committee is just disingenuous on its face.

Tapper was crying last weekend because Republicans were refusing to come on his show. I can’t imagine why they would with this kind of interviewing, right?

Impeachment is literally the attempted removal of a duly elected President from office. There’s a reason the historical precedent is to keep it as transparent as possible, vote on rules, and allow the minority certain powers. What Schiff is perpetrating is a travesty and deserves to be called out, not excused by hacks like Tapper.

Trump Wins Bipartisan Justice Award, Kamala Harris Throws a Fit

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-26-at-5.16.35-PM Trump Wins Bipartisan Justice Award, Kamala Harris Throws a Fit kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Criminal Justice Reform Congress award

Screenshot from this video

On Friday, President Donald Trump received the Bipartisan Justice Award for his work on criminal justice reform from the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center.

The bipartisan group consists of Republicans, Democrats and Independents whose primary focus is on criminal justice reform.

Trump spoke after receiving the award at a historically black college, Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina about the work he and a bipartisan group had done on reform with the First Step Act that he championed and passed in December. The Act focused on gaining release for thousands of non-violent offenders from federal prisons and provided programs to bring down recidivism. One of the men who gained release through the Act, Matthew Charles, was there to present Trump with the award.

Others who had benefitted from the reform also spoke including Tanesha Bannister.

Bannister spoke about how the Act not only freed thousands of people, but he helped rehabilitate and increase opportunities to work and reintegrate back into society.

According to WLTX 19:

Trump also said his policies on trade, taxes, and as he phrased it, “putting America first,” have contributed to a better job market for those released from prison and millions of others.

“We’re acting, not talking,” he said.

He’s now moving to work on the Second Step Act, to do even more to rehab people back into society.

But he was attacked by someone who does a lot of talking but not a lot of action for positive change.

The president’s speech kicked off a weekend forum on criminal justice that included 2020 Democratic candidates.

Kamala Harris was to be among the candidates in attendance but she decided to play politics instead and announced that she would boycott the event because of Trump’s presence. “I said I wouldn’t come because I couldn’t believe that Donald Trump would be given an award as it relates to criminal justice reform,” Harris complained.

Imagine boycotting a specifically bipartisan event because she’s so nakedly political and trying to pull a stunt to score points. Actions like this perhaps explain why she’s so low in the polls now. The more people know about her, the less they care for her. She’s wallowing around 5 recent.

She later flip-flopped and changed her mind, saying she would be attending because the college removed the 20/20 Bipartisan Center as the sponsor of the forum.

So she’s attacking a bipartisan group for daring to give Trump an award?

Meanwhile she has an incredibly bad reputation in relation to criminal justice, so much so that many people on the left have nicknamed her “Kamala the Cop” and would never think of voting for her. It’s not because she’s locked people up in the interests of justice, it’s because they don’t feel her actions have been consistent with justice.

Is it possible that former FBI General Counsel James Baker has begun cooperating with Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham?

Rumors began swirling on Friday in Washington following OANN’s Jack Posobiec’s  interview with Ned Ryun, who is the CEO and founder of American Majority.

I’ll give you the bottom line first. Toward the end of the segment, Posobiec said to Ryun, “Essentially what you’re saying is that Baker has flipped.”

Ryun replied, “I do believe that Baker has flipped based off my sources that have known and worked with Baker for years.”

The two began with a discussion of the DOJ’s announcement that Durham’s administrative review had shifted to a criminal inquiry. Ryun said he has suspected for months this would happen. He also thinks that Durham probably convened a grand jury weeks and weeks ago.

Note: Next, Posobiec speaks of James A. Baker, the former FBI General Counsel as the man who leaked the transcripts of General Flynn’s phone calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Posobiec says, “In this filing, Sidney Powell is stating that it was James Baker, the General Counsel of the FBI, and that the Washington Post ran it at the urging of James Clapper.”

That is not true. He is confusing the two men. The filing clearly states that the man who allegedly leaked the transcript of Flynn’s calls is Director Col. James H. Baker at ONA (Office of Net Assessment in the Pentagon). He is the one who regularly has lunch with Washington Post reporter David Ignatius who published the story. Below is a footnote from the Flynn filing which contains this information. (The full document can be viewed here).

House Republicans revealed in January of this year that James A. Baker (FBI) was under a criminal investigation for leaks, just not the leak referred to in the Flynn filing.

Then, Ned Ryun picks right up without saying, no it’s really the James Baker from the Pentagon. Ryun says:

I believe that James Baker was guilty of leaking…But I’ve talked with some high-level DOJ officials who worked with James Baker back in the day and they believe that he is probably witness number one for Durham and Barr, that he is actually providing evidence against others inside of this entire investigation. Because, let’s not forget not only was he general counsel at the FBI, but he was also formerly the FISA guy at DOJ and I believe that he based a lot of what he did in the FISA process off trusting others. I feel that, according to these sources, that he has been used and abused and he is actually being helpful to Barr and Durham. I think he will have to bear the consequences for some of these actions that he, I believe, is guilty of. At the same time, I think he is being extremely helpful.

To make a long story short, it’s entirely possible that one of these men have begun cooperating with Barr and Durham which would certainly be good news. Both are in legal jeopardy and both would have reason to do so. But no one really knows.
