Joe Biden Calls Japan “Xenophobic” In Bizarre Rant

In the time I publish this, Joe Biden will have committed three to five more gaffes, but we’ll land on a specific one today.

On Wednesday, he was in South Carolina stumping for his presidential campaign and he managed to not only slander a key ally, but then celebrate them for the bad thing he accused them of being. No, it doesn’t make any sense but this is Joe Biden we are talking about.

Joe Biden suggested during a campaign speech that “xenophobia” is keeping Japanese women in the job market.

The 76-year-old Biden, drawing on his time working with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe while vice president, said that because Japan doesn’t allow many foreign workers to come in, women in the country must remain in the workforce.

“You cannot succeed as a country if you leave more than half of your brainpower on the sidelines,” Biden said Wednesday during a speech in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

“Japan is in a position where traditionally women are as well-educated as men, but the tradition was, once they had a child, they were to drop out of the job market,” he continued, noting that the traditional roles have changed under Abe.

“There’s an entire move, because they’re xenophobic — because they don’t want to invite other people from outside their country to come in and make up the workforce — they have fewer workers than they have a need for workers. And so, what they’ve done is they’ve decided to encourage women to stay in the job market,” Biden said.

What in the world is he trying to say? If he believes Japan is xenophobic, then wouldn’t that be something to chastise? Instead, he tacitly lauds it as a positive factor that gets more women into the workforce. I mean, is he making that case that America should curtail immigration so as to get more women into the workforce? If he’s not, then what the heck is the point of this story?

His campaign staffers have to be beating their heads against the wall at this point. It’s getting clearer that much like President Trump, Biden isn’t capable of moderating himself. But unlike President Trump, who’s made a conscious decision in his public comments to just give no hoots, Biden isn’t doing this on purpose. He wants to avoid rocking the boat and he simply can’t. The mental fortitude isn’t there.

Also, I’ll note that if Trump had said this about a major ally, it’d have been national news and he’d have been roundly condemned as destroying alliances. Joe Biden, who is leading the Democratic field and the odds on favorite to win, literally just called an ally xenophobic in public. This is magnitudes worse than Trump slagging some countries in private and the comments being leaked. Oddly enough though, the mainstream media didn’t even report this latest Biden screw up.

If Biden is this gaffe prone now, what’s it going to be like when he’s got Trump breathing down his neck? It will certainly make for some entertaining debates I suppose.

The Babylon Bee Takes on the Fauxtrage Mob’s Ridiculous War on Comedian Dave Chappelle – and Wins

In his recent Netflix special “Sticks and Stones“, comedian Dave Chappelle has unleashed hell on cancel culture and fauxtrage mobs, and also turned the tables on liberal arguments when it comes to issues like abortion and President Trump.

Naturally this makes Chappelle Public Enemy Number One to leftists and their outrage army whose sole purpose in life is to find things to be offended about in order to wage social media wars against the offending subject. The idea is to force the object of the mob to shut up or otherwise confirm.

Chappelle has proven over and over again that he’s just not gonna do that.

Because Democrats and so-called progressives have so heavily invested themselves in “identity politics”, under normal circumstances any criticisms of Chappelle would be viewed and called out as “racist” because the comedian is black.

But those rules don’t apply in this case, because Chappelle is doing what fewer and fewer comedians are doing in modern times when it comes to the demands from the left for milquetoast “comedy” and “safe spaces” for minority groups: he’s, in a nutshell, giving them the bird.

With that in mind, the geniuses at the Babylon Bee wrote one of the better takes on liberals and their reactions to Chappelle’s “Sticks and Stones” special:

After some confusion was expressed by casual observers of apparent hypocrisy in their denunciation of Dave Chappelle’s most recent comedy special, liberals from around the country clarified that they only want black voices to be heard when those voices are saying liberal-approved things.

The offended white progressives asked black comedian Dave Chappelle to “keep it down” and “maybe not talk so much” after his comments made them feel uncomfortable, sources confirmed Thursday.

Perfect.

Chappelle, whose political affiliation is unknown, has demonstrated that he’ll call both sides to the carpet politically. But because he doesn’t spare the snowflakes on the left from his politically incorrect wrath, he gets treated like a traitor to The CauseWestlake Legal Group 2122 The Babylon Bee Takes on the Fauxtrage Mob’s Ridiculous War on Comedian Dave Chappelle – and Wins republicans Popular Culture Politics political correctness Ohio North Carolina Netflix Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment donald trump democrats dave chappelle Culture comedy Allow Media Exception Abortion   , as a comedian whose opinions and shows you should ignore because he refuses to march in lockstep with leftist orthodoxy.

Nobody puts Dave Chappelle in a corner, and that includes perpetually fauxfended liberals. Kudos to the Babylon Bee for getting right to the heart of the matter.

Comey Believes An Apology Is Owed; Too Bad Trump Can’t Fire Him Again

Westlake Legal Group obama-comey-620x413 Comey Believes An Apology Is Owed; Too Bad Trump Can’t Fire Him Again Special Counsel Sean Hannity President Trump Mueller Investigation Kimberley Strassel Jim Jordan james comey Glenn Greenwald Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption donald trump democrats Dan Bongino byron york buck sexton Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

On Oct. 28, 2013, President Barack Obama and James Comey participate in the installation ceremony for Mr. Comey as FBI director at the bureau’s Washington headquarters. PHOTO: CHARLES DHARAPAK/ASSOCIATED PRESS

 

Fired, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey sure has chutzpah. He has mistaken Attorney General William Barr’s decision not to prosecute him for vindication. Following Thursday’s release of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’ surprise report which focused specifically on Comey, he feels that an apology is owed. Here is what he had to say:

Far from exonerating Comey, the report found that he had engaged in a great deal of wrongdoing. My colleague, Bonchie, posted the details of Comey’s January 6, 2017 briefing of President-elect Trump, which was “almost certainly a trap” here.

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York explained that “the group’s plan was to spring a scandalous allegation on President-elect Trump, quickly record his reaction, use a prearranged secure videoconference to discuss the information, and fit it all into the FBI’s ongoing (but unknown to Trump) “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation.” Read the whole article.

To me, their behavior sounds treasonous. The group’s actions were premeditated, disingenuous and subversive.

Additionally, the January briefing was not Comey’s only offense. The report discusses his mishandling of classified information, the leaked memos, his frequent leaks of other material and further violations of DOJ and FBI policies. The report says that Comey set “a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees.” It states:

Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility. By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees […] Were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director’s example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly.

More importantly is that the findings in this report are expected to pale in comparison to what is uncovered by the other two reports we’ve been waiting for. Sean Hannity called Thursday’s report the “tip of the iceberg” which is why the DOJ declined to prosecute.

The reports to follow, the IG’s main report on FISA abuse by the FBI and John Durham’s report on the origin of the Trump/Russia investigation, will provide a treasure trove of information. Hannity said that Comey will be playing a starring role in the FBI’s FISA court application process because he signed off on three of them. He speculated that Comey could be charged with premeditated fraud. Hannity told viewers:

The Durham report will dig into how the government’s powerful tools of intelligence were used and abused against President Trump’s campaign and then President Trump. And also, in fact, whether or not illegal spying occurred, the outsourcing of intelligence gathering to friendly countries like Italy, Great Britain and Australia, all designed to circumvent US laws against spying on Americans without a warrant for the purpose of destroying a duly elected president. That will be a bombshell. James Comey is also implicated in that particular case. We also wait to see what roles James Clapper and John Brennan played in all this.

All of this is to say that the misguided former FBI Director is claiming victory way too soon because it appears that he remains very much in legal jeopardy. The worst is yet to come.

Many in the political world were stunned by Comey’s tone deafness. Here are some of the reactions to his bizarre request for an apology.

The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel: “A curious request given the report’s bottom line was in fact this: “We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald: “Holy shit: the arrogance and self-regard of @Comey is unparalleled. The Inspector General from his own Department just issued a scathing report accusing him of wrongdoing so severe that it “shocked” his own colleagues & he’s demanding apologies instead of expressing contrition.”

Television host and author Dan Bongino: “Comey celebrating a report, which clearly lays out his ethical depravity and disregard for the rules of his employment, is the Comiest Comey thing ever. What a clown this guy is.”

Radio host Buck Sexton: “So James Comey was – it’s official now – a sanctimonious, self-righteous bureaucrat who believed in holding other people to standards that he himself was free to break when he saw fit. This should surprise no one.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH): “Now we know why Comey didn’t want to prosecute Clinton—he didn’t see a problem mishandling sensitive information. After clearing her, he did it too!…Comey, like Clinton, thinks he’s above the law.”

And, of course, President Trump: “Perhaps never in the history of our Country has someone been more thoroughly disgraced and excoriated than James Comey in the just released Inspector General’s Report. He should be ashamed of himself!”

Too bad Trump can’t fire him again.

We Just Found Out Who’s Been Leaking Trump’s Private Conversations

If you’ve been wondering how so much of what Trump says in the privacy of the Oval Office manages to make its way to The New York Times and other outlets, we might have an answer.

Over the years, we’ve seen more stories than I can keep up with leaked to the press centering on something Trump supposedly said in private. Often they center on harmless, off the cuff statements (such as the “nuke hurricanes” flap) that are then printed to try to embarrass the President. Context, whether something was actually a joke, or whether it’s even being presented truthfully never seems to matter and since everything is anonymous, it can never be countered.

Now, Trump’s most trusted executive assistant has been caught leaking details, not just about happenings in the Oval Office, but also about his family.

Westerhout’s departure followed reports that she had attended an off-the-record dinner with reporters at the president’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, sharing inside information about what went on the Oval Office as well as personal details about the Trump family.

This isn’t something that just happens once. You can bet your savings that she’s being doing this for a very long time. She just happened to get caught this time.

In fact, it’s no surprise that many media members are painting her in a sympathetic light after the resignation. They just lost what was probably their main source into the President’s inner circle. Outlets like Axios and The New York Times have seemingly had a direct line into the Oval Office since Trump was inaugurated. Westerhout may not be the only source, but she appears to be a major one and it explains so much about how the press got ahold of personal comments that only a handful of people would have heard.

Westerhout will now learn a hard lesson, namely that he press didn’t really care about her. I’m sure they flattered her and made her feel special while she had the goods. Now that she’s gone, she’ll be cast aside as worthless. She could have kept her job for decades to come, long after Trump left the White House and now that’s gone. All to get some plaudits from Maggie Haberman and company. I have a feeling she’s regretting that decision.

Perhaps she can earn a bit role on MSNBC for a few months though.

Video: Tucker Carlson Can’t Stop Laughing as Mark Steyn Performs Dramatic Reenactment of Biden’s War Story

Bonchie wrote earlier today about a huge story from the Washington Post on Thursday where Joe Biden was found to have “jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened.”

It’s a hugely embarrassing story for Biden, coming on the heels of a month full of gaffes and misstatements he’s made on the campaign trail that have raised questions about his age and mental acuity.

Tucker Carlson discussed the news of Biden’s false war story on his Fox News program Thursday night, and during the segment he brought in Mark Steyn to weigh in with his thoughts on Biden being caught making up a war story to embellish his foreign policy creds.

Steyn ended up performing a dramatic reenactment of Biden’s story that left Carlson in stitches:

Carlson turned to Steyn, who maintained that the fictitious story was, in fact, Biden at his best. “To be fair, Tucker, this is the old Biden back,” he said. “The recent Biden of this campaign, the stumbling, bumbling, mumbling guy who can’t remember the name of Barack Obama, that’s an embarrassment. He stumbles, he trips on three-syllable words like ‘Democrat.’”

“But this is classic Biden,” Steyn went on. “This is Biden at top form, where he does this vivid, coherent, brilliant narrative, in which not a single detail is correct.”

Steyn then delivered a facetious monologue, pretending to be Biden as he recounted taking fire while president on D-Day, among other fake adventures. “This was classic Joe Biden. He’s back! His mojo has returned! His mojo knows what state it’s in.”

Watch Steyn retell Biden’s story below to a laughing Carlson:

A slightly longer version of the video shows a still-chuckling Carlson admitting at the end that he was drooling:

All humor aside, this was – as Twitchy described it – classic Steyn, and his larger point was that this is who Joe Biden really is. Biden wouldn’t be Biden if he didn’t invent stories from time to time in an effort to impress voters and beef up his political bonafides. We learned this back during his first presidential run in 1987.

Though he dropped out of that race due to confirmed stories of plagiarism, he stayed in politics and in the Senate, and eventually became President Barack Obamas’s vice president. So Biden has never really paid a political price for the tall tales he often likes to tell.

As a result, he has been emboldened to believe he can get away with telling them. Though the media has finally caught on and has started taking a closer look at his embellishments, only time will tell if the focus on them will impact voters. So far, it hasn’t.

As Bonchie wrote earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is back in full force on the Twitter machine and on Instagram live after a puzzling absence.

The results so far have been no less than what we typically expect out of the most narcissistic (and arguably the most hypocritical) Congresswoman in Washington, DC.

Her climate change rant from Tuesday night on Instagram Live was wild enough, but that wasn’t the only thing she talked about during that chat that had people rolling their eyes.

The New York Post reports on how AOC also insinuated that her generation is the true greatest generation ever:

“I think they’re badass,” said Ocasio-Cortez of young people in the clip, a copy of which was tweeted by conservative political voice Caleb Hull. “I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors.

“I think they’re profoundly courageous, because they’re willing to puncture more taboos and have conversations that, frankly, older generations sometimes struggle to have,” said AOC.

Immediately after saying that she didn’t “want to paint everybody with a broad brush,” AOC did just that, acting as though young people pioneered the concept of political activism — and apparently forgetting the Vietnam War protests and push for racial equality of the 1960s — let alone the WWII generation that saved the world from authoritarian rule and dubbed by former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brokaw in his 1998 book, “The Greatest Generation.”

“I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets,” she said. “How ’bout that?

“Previous generations have just assumed that [the] government’s got it,” she said, leaning into the camera and cupping her hands to her mouth.

Watch the video clip below:

A number of conservatives strongly objected to AOC’s mischaracterizations of millennials, including former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who weighed in via a series of tweets on Thursday with a much-needed history lesson for Ocasio-Cortez:

‘Nuff said.

Joe Biden Just Makes Up a War Story While Campaigning

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-8-620x317 Joe Biden Just Makes Up a War Story While Campaigning War Story the washington post senile Politics Mental Capacity lying Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story Election democrats Campaigning Afghanistan 2020

This seems fine.

Joe Biden can’t stop committing gaffes, although I question whether it’s even accurate to call making something up a gaffe. It’s probably more accurate to just say he lied.

Fox News delivers the details of this latest episode. It starts with Biden recounting that he flew into Afghanistan, through the teeth of danger, to honor a Navy Captain. The problem is that basically none of what he says is true.

According to Biden, he brushed off concerns about the risk of him traveling to the deadly area. “We can lose a vice president,” he said, recounting his words to a crowd during an event on Friday. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” His story involved the captain dramatically telling Biden he didn’t want the medal because his comrade ended up dying.

But after speaking with more than a dozen military and campaign sources, the Post determined the event “never happened” and that “almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.”

“It appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story,” the Post’s Matt Viser and Greg Jaffe wrote.

They added that Biden rattled off a slew of inaccurate facts in the span of just a few minutes.

“In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony,” Viser and Jaffe wrote.

Biden has a habit of this, and I’m not talking about his habit of making things up or forgetting where he is. I’m talking about him continually painting himself as being much more than he actually was as Vice President. We saw it with his ludicrous descriptions of dealing with Ukraine, where he presented himself as levying threats and getting things done, as if he actually had the power to make any decisions without Obama’s approval. Here, Biden inserts himself as a would be war hero, risking his own life to do well by a service member. In the end, his story comes off as simply using the military as pawns to promote how great he is, and that’s a problem even without the inaccuracies.

Of course, the inaccuracies are also a problem. When nearly every detail in a story turns out to be wrong, that doesn’t say a lot about Biden’s current mental capacity. He’s either really bad at lying or he’s honestly mixing up details and events to a striking degree. Neither is good.

At least he didn’t claim to be dodging sniper fire like a certain past Democrat nominee, so he has that going for him.

Sen. John Kennedy in Light of the Border Ban: The Dems’ Stance on Immigration is ‘On-The-Pipe Crazy’

Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy has strong words for congressional Dems following staffers being banned from the border.

Staff serving the Democrat-led House Oversight Committee were given the heave-ho Wednesday due to previous bad behavior.

From Fox News:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has barred Democratic staffers from the House Oversight Committee from visiting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a planned trip this week after committee staff allegedly were “disruptive” and refused to follow instructions during their last trip, Fox News has learned.

Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., had sent his staff to visit border facilities for “oversight inspections” last week and planned to send staff again to view Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and CBP centers.

But sources told Fox News that DHS has revoked access to CBP facilities for the upcoming visit, citing staff behavior that “interfered” with law enforcement operations — including refusing to leave one site after their scheduled window, skipping some tours and being “rude” to officers. A DHS official said that ICE visits will still be allowed this week, but with a two-hour time limit. One of those visits took place on Tuesday.

John laid into his across-the-aisle colleagues while speaking to FNC host Sandra Smith:

“Whether you’re a member of Congress or not, if you go to the border you have to follow the rules. It’s not the big rock candy mountain down there, it’s a law enforcement crisis. If somebody follows the rules and they’re a member of Congress, they should be allowed to go. But if they don’t they shouldn’t.”

That seems sensible.

The senator explained, however, that it’s not just an issue of behavior, but ideology:

“But let’s face what this is all about — not all of them, but many of my Democratic friends now believe in open borders. They think anybody that wants to come into America should be able to come in, they should be eligible for welfare, and food stamps, and free health care. And they should be able to stay on those programs as long as they want. And if you disagree with my Democratic friends, you’re a racist.”

Ever been on the pipe? John thinks Democrats have. Or, at least, they act like it:

“Now, they’re entitled to their opinion, but I’m entitled to mine and I think their argument is pernicious, I think it’s malign, I think it’s on-the-pipe crazy. I think vetting people who want to come into your country is not racist, it’s prudent, if for no other reason but public safety.”

He also asserted the Dems are full of it — they’re “playing games” with border issues, “[throwing] up roadblocks” under various guises, when they really just want open borders.

But, you, know, that’s what the pipe does:

“Now all of my colleagues on the Democratic side — I don’t want to, many of them are in good faith, but there’s some who go down there and they do everything they can to disrupt law enforcement. They hate border security, they hate Border Patrol, they hate ICE, they believe in open borders, and if you disagree with them you’re a racist and I just think that’s on-the-pipe crazy.”

Blue state politicians certainly have redirected their leadership in terms of border control and national security. Not so long ago, they had a guy in office who was, apparently, a stranger to pipin’ hot madness. I give you a Democrat who has in no way ever done drugs — Willam Jefferson Clinton:

Actor Tom Arnold is like the male version of Bette Midler (that’s not a compliment, Tom, in case you’re reading this). When he opens his mouth – or logs on to his Twitter account, what comes out of it often sounds like it came straight out of the deepist, nastiest pits of the Democratic fever swamps.

He’s accused President Trump of murder. He’s threatened to beat up Trump. He’s also told Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), a war hero who lost his eye serving his country in combat, to man up.

What’s he up to this week? Trying to demean White House Sec. Stephanie Grisham and former White House Sec. Sarah Sanders.

This is the tweet from Grisham that Arnold took issue with:

Arnold, who apparently lurks on Twitter just to troll Trump administration officials, weighed in with the usual class you can expect from a guy like him:

Arnold responded to some of the Twitter users who took exception to what he said:

I’m not typically one to join in on disparaging someone’s looks, but Arnold really asked for it here. Sanders is a lovely, classy woman while Tom comes across as starved for attention and desperate.

Not to mention recent photos of him show he really has no room whatsoever to talk about someone else’s weight.

Like this one with another unhinged leftist:

And this one:

And this one:

I wonder if Tom knows what they say about people in glass houses?

Heartbreak: Bill de Blasio Fails to Qualify for Third Democratic Debate, But Struggling Campaign Presses On

It would appear that Democratic voters are not in a New York state of mind.

The day after Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) officially dropped out of the presidential race, the participants in the third Democratic presidential debate were announced. One name that was not on the list, rather unsurprisingly, was NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The NY Daily News reports reports:

It’s official: Mayor de Blasio won’t be on stage next month with the rest of the Democratic candidates hoping to become their party’s presidential nominee.

De Blasio, whose long-shot presidential bid has been marred by low poll numbers and slumping fundraising, did not make the cut, party leadership announced Thursday.

Hizzoner didn’t manage to meet the qualification requirement of garnering at least 2% support in four or more polls approved by the Democratic National Committee. He also failed to fulfill the second requirement of receiving at least 130,000 unique donations.

Here are the candidates who did qualify, according to the DNC’s criteria:

The Mayor has faced intense criticism from constituents back home who say he should be focusing more on the problems facing New York City than running for higher office. Some have even taken to distributing “missing person” posters with de Blasio’s name and face on them:

Campaign literature began to pop up on lampposts in Midtown Friday, with a tongue-in-cheek message declaring de Blasio “MISSING,” amid his longshot quest for the Oval Office.

“Last seen embarrassing himself in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina,” read the black-and-white posters. “If seen please tell him to immediately return to New York and do the job he was elected to do.”

The poster — printed with a photo of Hizzoner and his age, height and weight — asks anyone with “information about this man’s whereabouts” to contact “deblasioforresident@gmail.com.”

Here’s what they look like:

Ouch.

According to multiple media reports, though, de Blasio was in Nevada campaigning today and doesn’t appear to have any plans to drop out:

When contacted Thursday, de Blasio’s campaign remained focused on the campaign ahead of them.

“The Mayor very much looks forward to his return engagement on ‘Pod Save America,’” they said in a statement.

“He also looks forward to the Nevada State AFL-CIO convention on Thursday and the New Hampshire State Democratic Convention on September 7 as well as many appearances ahead.”

De Blasio’s campaign has been plagued with setbacks, including just last week when he appeared in front of an Iowa union crowd via video conference, and the audio feed made him sound like he had swallowed helium.
