Democrats are Apoplectic That Trump Would Listen To A Foreigner With Dirt On An Opponent

During a sweeping interview with President Trump on Wednesday, George Stephanopoulos asked, “If foreigners, if Russia, if China, if someone else offers you information on an opponent, should they accept it or should they call the FBI.”

Trump replied, “I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, ‘Oh, we have information on your opponent,’ I think I’d want to hear it.” (Relevant portion starts at 1:45 on the video below.)

Trump’s response immediately became red meat for the liberal media who were consumed with self-righteous indignation. Considering that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC paid $12 million to a foreigner to not only dig up dirt on candidate Donald Trump, but to disseminate it among the Washington political community, the Intelligence agencies and then to the media, their reaction was extraordinary indeed.

One of the most amusing of all came from Obama’s DNI Director, James Clapper, who told CBS News’ Anderson Cooper that he was just “stunned.” It is believed that Clapper leaked word to the media that former-FBI Director James Comey had briefed the President-elect on the Steele dossier, which gave them the green light to break the story. (Clapper’s remarks begin at 1:40 in the video below.)

Clapper said:

I’ve run out of adjectives to describe my reaction to this. Incredible, amazing, I think stunning and disturbing, that the President would advocate the use of…accepting information provided by a foreign country, notably a foreign adversary. And in doing so, completely overlooking the fact that this could well be, probably would be disinformation. In other words, completely phony. (Anderson Cooper shudders at the thought of this.) And to endorse that, and in doing so, endorse…undercut the FBI and its Director is just incredible. I can’t get over the duplicity of it. Here, with all the criticism about the…the…infamous dossier, and you know, you can’t use it because it’s not valid, you can’t accept it, and that’s…you know…in this case, it’s okay.

Let me repeat, “I can’t get over the duplicity of it.” Tell me again where Christopher Steele got his dossier material.

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked her guest panel, “Is the president going to be reported as a security threat after that interview?” The panelists responded similarly, all agreeing that Trump was “sending a message to foreign governments that it’s “open season” for them to interfere in U.S. elections.”

The 2020 Democratic candidates, of course, found Trump’s answer equally appalling. Here are some of their tweets:

Joe Biden: “President Trump is once again welcoming foreign interference in our elections. This isn’t about politics. It is a threat to our national security. An American President should not seek their aid and abet those who seek to undermine democracy.”

Corey Booker: “It’s not “oppo research” — it’s foreign interference in US elections. That you would say this is disgraceful. That you would do it from the Oval Office (yet again) proves you’re unfit for the office you hold”.

Elizabeth Warren: “The #MuellerReport made it clear: A foreign government attacked our 2016 elections to support Trump, Trump welcomed that help, and Trump obstructed the investigation. Now, he said he’d do it all over again. It’s time to impeach Donald Trump.”

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro: “After seeking and receiving the help of our adversaries to to get elected in 2016, Donald Trump is now essentially calling for an open season on our 2020 elections. Once again, he’s putting his interests above our nation’s, and risking and the integrity of our elections.”

Sen. Kamala Harris told the Huffington Post, “I am concerned, and the American public should be concerned. It’s sending a signal to our adversaries around the world ― North Korea, Russia, fill in the blank ― saying, ‘Hey, come on in for 2020.’”

Any one of these candidates would listen to a foreigner who told them they had dirt on Trump in a New York minute.

In February 2018, Adam Schiff was pretty quick to listen to (and engage with) a prankster who called his office to say he had naked pictures of President Trump. He claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.” (Audio can be heard here.)

Sean Hannity pointed out that “listening is much different than lying, spying and paying for Russian lies and spreading it through the media by deep state operatives and then using it as the basis of a FISA warrant.”

As Attorney General William Barr’s investigation gets into high gear, Democrats have doubled down on their accusations against the President. They talk about impeachment as if he’s actually committed a crime. Their ability to remain oblivious to reality is breathtaking.

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, they will become the accused.

How should we punish them? Should we send SWAT teams to their homes because they are such dangerous criminals? Bankrupt them with legal fees? Place them in solitary confinement? Or maybe send them to Rikers Island, just because.

Vox “Journalist” Tries to Clown on Trump, Ends Up Exposing How Ignorant He Is

Sometimes it’s best to just not say anything. Vox’s Aaron Rupar, purportedly a “journalist,” hasn’t learned that lesson.

Today, Donald Trump gave a speech in Iowa where he hit on some of the struggles that rural Americans are dealing with as they produce much of the food you and I enjoy daily. At one point, Trump starts to discuss improvements to broadband in their areas and how many farms in Iowa don’t have the proper connectivity for their tractors. This extends to 3G/4G wireless internet coverage as well, which is incredibly spotty in the midwest.

This had Rupar thinking he had a solid own of Trump on tap. You see, he said tractors can’t connect to the internet. What a moron, am I right?

His first statement on tariffs is not really correct either. Yes, costs can theoretically be passed onto American consumers if the market will bear it, but it is still a tax on Chinese corporations and does hurt them. There’s a reason Mexico caved to Trump’s recent tariff threats over immigration and it’s not because they just wanted to do him a solid.

But it’s the second tweet that has the video and comment dealing with tractors and internet connectivity. You can watch the clip and see exactly what Trump said, but my description above is an accurate portrayal.

Rupar, being your typical North Eastern bubble dweller calls what Trump says bizarre and tries to play it off as another “omgz, how dumb is Trump” moment.

If you’ve been alive anywhere outside of New York or D.C. in the past ten years though, you know how ill-informed Rupar’s comment is.

In fact, I can remember well over a decade ago going to an Uncles house and checking out some of the new equipment at his neighbor’s farm. At the time, GPS was being used to ensure precision plowing and planting. Today, internet connectivity in tractors at even smaller operations is becoming the norm to run all kinds of new features to keep things moving smoothly.

The lack of broadband and wireless connectivity in the areas where some of these farms are is a real problem and hurts efficiency.

Despite the clear stupidity of Rupar’s comment, the usual suspects still fell for it.

What this shows is just how out of touch many of these press personalities are. They’ve probably never been within 500 feet of tractor, much less do they know about the technological improvements currently in them.

It’s cliched but worth repeating. This is why Trump won.

People are sick of being looked down on by people in a few major cities who have no idea how their avocado toast ends up at their $10 a drink cafe. All over the country, people do different jobs to provide a higher standard of living for all of us and clowns like Rupar think they are superior because they can write a few hundred words a day and snark on Twitter.

Vox is just a joke of an outlet. They are not only biased, but routinely display a level of ignorant arrogance that is only rivaled by some personalities on CNN. Maybe Rupar will think before he tweets next time or at least try google first, but I doubt it.

Video: Rep. Norma Torres (D) Cheapens Abortion Debate on House Floor, Calls Male Pro-Lifers “Sex-Starved”

Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA-35) speaks on the floor of the U.S. House – 6/12/19. Screen grab via C-SPAN.

I thought I’d seen it all when it came to Democrat women infantilizing the abortion debate, but what happened on the floor of the U.S. House today just might take the cake.

Roll Call reports:

A routine House debate nearly exploded Wednesday when California Democrat Norma J. Torres implied her Republican colleagues were “sex-starved males” for opposing abortion.

“Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose,” Torres said as lawmakers debated a rule setting up amendment consideration for a four-bill spending package that includes funding for public health programs.

Torres, one of the newest members of the House Rules Committee, clearly broke House Rules — members cannot personally impugn their colleagues on the floor.

Watch video of Torres speaking on the House floor, and what happened after, below:

Unsurprisingly, Torres is being praised and virtually high-fived on social media by The Usual SuspectsWestlake Legal Group 2122 Video: Rep. Norma Torres (D) Cheapens Abortion Debate on House Floor, Calls Male Pro-Lifers “Sex-Starved” washington D.C. Pro-Life Politics North Carolina Norma Torres Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Congress California Allow Media Exception Abortion   as a “national hero” for her remarks, but in reality she’s just the latest on a long list of Democratic women (and left-wing media types) who cheapen the debate by taking uncalled-for swipes at men who are pro-life.

Plus, isn’t this kinda like reverse sexism or something? Writer Jeryl Bier made an excellent point in this regard on Twitter earlier:

As I’ve written previously, La. Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) is pro-life for very personal reasons – reasons that have nothing to do with being “sex-starved.”

Not only that, but there are many other pro-life male politicians on both sides of the aisle who are also fathers. Some are brothers, uncles, nephews, cousins. They aren’t pro-life because they want to “control women.” Nor are they pro-life because they are “sex-starved.” They are pro-life because they can’t imagine life without their loved ones.

Democrats and their feminist allies want you to believe these men have “no standing” in the abortion debate. That’s just wrong. All voices matter in this debate.

The irony of it all is that Torres’s belief in abortion on demand benefits “sex-starved” liberal males who support a woman’s “right to choose” because it gets them off the hook.

Don’t look for that inconvenient fact to be mentioned by Torres on the House floor, though. Wouldn’t get her near the applause, “you go, girl!” praises, favorable media mentions, and likes/RTs.

Ocasio-Cortez “Literally Ran” from a Republican Contender Who Asked Her to Debate Him

Westlake Legal Group alexandria-ocasio-cortez-turtleneck-SCREENSHOT-620x327 Ocasio-Cortez “Literally Ran” from a Republican Contender Who Asked Her to Debate Him republican Politics New York Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats democrat debate AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The brave New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bravely fled from a potential debate by a potential Republican contender for her district seat.

According to the New York Post, Talk-radio producer Rich Valdes and Ocasio-Cortez were both marching in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday. When Valdes spotted the congresswoman, he approached her to introduce himself and challenge her to a debate on capitalism vs. socialism.

According to the Post, the moment Valdes went to make the introduction, Ocasio-Cortez spotted him and literally ran away:

But Ocasio-Cortez “cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street,” Valdes said.

“She literally ran!” he said.

“I thought this was a good time to try and get a response but I honestly only saw the back of her head as she trotted across the street.”

Guardian Angels founder and radio host Curtis Sliwa also witnessed the exchange and confirmed Valdes’s account.

“As soon as she saw him, she did a pirouette — a spin — and she ran north on Fifth Avenue, ahead of her delegation, just to get away from Rich,” he said.

“I heard Rich yelling after her, ‘OK, AOC. You can run — but you can’t hide!’”

Nancy Sliwa, wife of Curtis, nabbed pictures of it happening just to be sure that the story couldn’t be denied later.

And deny it she did. AOC’s spokesman Corbin Trent said Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t trying to get away, she was just moving forward quickly with the parade.

“She kept walking! The parade moved! It’s a procession! Give me a break,” he said.

Trent went on to say that Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t owe anybody a debate and that if he does want to debate her then he should run for office. She’ll only debate him then. This is exactly what Valdes plans to do, but Trent said he wishes Valdes good luck against her because she has over 4 million Twitter followers.

It’s unlikely that Ocasio-Cortez will accept any kind of debate, and has denigrated any who have asked her to one in a high-profile way. She accused Ben Shapiro of “catcalling” her when he offered her to debate him.

She also told 2020 presidential hopeful John Delaney to “sashay away” after he challenged her to a debate on the merits of healthcare for all.

Ocasio-Cortez is content to lob Twitter bombs behind the safety of her phone, but will not go so far as to risk her narrative with direct debate. Generally, anyone who is unwilling to expose their ideas to direct criticism is holding beliefs and stances they know to be shaky.

So her physically running from Valdes isn’t at all unbelievable. She does a good deal of figuratively running from other debates as is.

Joe Biden Promises To Cure Cancer

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Biden-620x410 Joe Biden Promises To Cure Cancer Uncategorized republicans primary Politics Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats cancer biden Allow Media Exception 2020

Joe Biden Promises To Cure Cancer

I was up early this morning listening to different news programs. I just barely caught the end of a segment on Breitbart News daily. Host Alex Marlowe referred to former. Vice President Joe Biden said that if elected we would cure cancer. I wasn’t sure I heard right, but I was actually able to confirm the statement. From Fox News

Former Vice President Joe Biden made a bold promise on Tuesday to “cure cancer” if he is elected president in 2020

“That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that… I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden declared.

I’m not sure which way to take this one. On one hand, it smacks of using his dead son (who died of cancer) to score political points. Another side could be that he is just incredibly stupid. As any oncologist will tell you, cancer isn’t just one disease. It covers a whole range off afflictions. I’m not sure that we could cure (all) cancer, even if we put the entire Federal budget towards the effort.

Some of the talk show discussions I heard had conservatives demanding that the Democrats toss him from the Democrat Primary Race. Personally, I think that’s a bad idea. The last thing we want, is Biden to shut up. Let him talk…all the way to second place in 2020.

A Whistle Blowing Dallas PD Officer Is Coming Forward Against His Chief as Dallas Falls Deeper Into Crime and Murder

Westlake Legal Group AP_16190332494608-620x394 A Whistle Blowing Dallas PD Officer Is Coming Forward Against His Chief as Dallas Falls Deeper Into Crime and Murder Texas Renee Hall Politics police Nick Novello murder homicide Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats dallas crime corruption Allow Media Exception

Veteran Dallas Police Officer Nick Novello has been speaking out against the mismanagement and incompetence displayed by the department’s police chief U. Renee Hall for years, and as Dallas approaches unprecedented murder and crime rates, Novello is once again sounding the alarm.

Recently, Hall appeared in the hot seat before the Dallas city council where she was raked over the coals for how horribly the department has managed both itself and crime within the city. As of now, Dallas is set to hit a decade high in homicide rates with a projected 228 deaths by the end of the year.

Now rumors are swirling that Hall is about to get the boot, and Novello plans to deliver a letter to Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson that may just seal the deal as it details just how bad things are behind the scenes at the Dallas PD. It’s a letter that he has allowed RedState to see before it’s delivered.

What is contained in the letter is nothing short of shocking.

Among the facts is the revelation that there are less than 1,200 officers attempting to patrol a city filled with 1.4 million people. Novello also reveals that as the murder rate spikes, Dallas detectives are short-staffed by 40 to 60 percent. He also reveals that emergency calls that go unanswered by police due to a lack of officers present.

“I work the slowest watch in the city and I am in possession of hundreds of emergency calls with the same language, “supervisor notified, call expired, no elements or officers available,” wrote Novello. “Now if calls for police service go largely unanswered in a timely manner at central, what do you suppose is happening across the city, particularly during busy periods or when one emergency ties up scarce resources?”

Novello also mentions that in response, Hall has told her officers to handle calls with a “triaging” methodology. Novello points out that this is more revealing to the department’s problems than some may believe:

In a medical context, triage means that one will determine the severity of the injury in question, and treat based on a hierarchical order, depending on who needs medical attention the most. It is understood that scarce medical resources necessitate the triage methodology being utilized. In using the term “triaging” in a police context, are we telling the citizens of Dallas that their needs are going to be assessed based on the immediacy of the threat or injury extant in a scenario? I must insist that using this triaging language, is no less than a mea culpa, and speaks to DPD’s inability to perform it’s functions. In the context of policing, admitting that we are going to triaging is nothing short of admitting that we are no longer capable of servicing the citizens of this city in totality.

In other words, if your house has been broken into and a robbery has occurred, the police may not show up to your door for hours as the scarcely available units are busy with what may be a more pressing crime happening that moment. Some calls, as Novello points out in his letter, aren’t getting responded to at all, and in large number.

“Officers at other stations tell me, calls at times are backed up 40-50 at a time; many emergency calls holding for hours due to the staffing crisis,” Novello tells the Mayor. “I suspect you know nothing of this miasma. Now you do.”

As Novello plans to release this letter to Mayor Johnson, multiple Dallas policing groups have also come forward and revealed that its members have voted that they have no confidence in Hall and that they do not believe that she has the ability to turn the department around.

How Hall continues with her job intact without a miracle is anyone’s guess. If she does, Dallas may watch as its crime problem continues to worsen as officers abandon the department for greener pastures, and fewer officers are there to answer calls for help by Dallas citizens.

In the meantime, Dallas is definitely in a quiet crisis due to the consistent mismanagement of Hall who seems more focused on a social justice laden approach to fighting crime than actually fighting crime and securing the best she can for her officers who have accused her of ruining careers and using her position to punish her opposition.

Report: The Obama Administration Deleted 190 of Its Speeches on the Immigration Crisis Just Hours Before Trump Took Office

Westlake Legal Group posters-2590766_1280-620x413 Report: The Obama Administration Deleted 190 of Its Speeches on the Immigration Crisis Just Hours Before Trump Took Office Uncategorized sunlight foundation sanctuary cities Politics immigration Front Page Stories E-Verify donald trump democrats Barack Obama Allow Media Exception

 

 

It’s called politics, folks.

According to research released Tuesday, the Obama administration deleted 190 speeches related to America’s immigration crisis from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement website just hours before Donald Trump officially took office.

The speeches — in transcript form — concerned topics from sanctuary cities (here’s a poop map) to E-Verify to the treatment of detainees.

The erasure was reported by government transparency advocacy group the Sunlight Foundation.

Given that when stuff gets deleted, that usually means they don’t want you to know it existed, we can all give a big “Well, well, WELL” to someone on the left side of the aisle.

Prior to this age of Donald Trump being the most racist, white supremacist, brown-skin-hatin’ son of a gun west of Jupiter (see here, and if Jupiter’s to the west, forgive me), could it be that other leaders and officials — dare I say, Democrats, even — wanted border security??

Well, it could. Here’s somethin’ right up that alley from a man who — though called America’s first black president — was actually as white as the Quaker Oats dude:



Geez Louise! Hitler!!!!

From the report:

With a couple of clicks of a mouse, access to a federal government web resource containing 12 years of primary source materials on ICE’s history was lost.

The deletion occurred on January 18th and 19th of the first Year of Trump — which may or may not, as per MSNBC, have put the ball into motion for a “thousand-year reich” (here).

So watch that Star of David of yours — if you haven’t already thrown it away, attempting to attend the Dyke March (here).

Among those whose speeches were given the dump is former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan — a public supporter of Trump’s Immigration policies.

In February 2016, as executive associate director of Enforcement and Removal Operations, Thomas delivered a speech to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the “Unaccompanied Minor Crisis” — a massive problem of illegal young children at the border.

“The public at risk” was how he characterized sanctuary cities in May of 2016.

But ya’ll can’t read about it — it got deleted.

So why’d all this valuable information get 86’d? I wish the Church Lady could answer. Let’s see:



Dang it — she ain’t sayin’.

Here’s the Sunlight Foundation’s shot at it:

It is not inconceivable that an outgoing Democratic administration might want to avoid preserving these public stances for future scrutiny. The removal of the ICE speeches collection represents the loss of a primary source history of the early days of ICE, dating back to its creation during the George W. Bush administration in 2003.

Like I said, it’s called politics.

At least we’ll find out more, thanks to impending comprehensive mainstream media coverage. My cookies need to be taken out of the oven right now, but I’ll wait ’til I see this story pop up on MSNBC in a meaningful way before I get ’em. Standing by and hungry…

Poll: Democrats Want La. Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) Primaried – Because He’s Pro-Life

Westlake Legal Group DonnaJohnBelEdwards1-620x339 Poll: Democrats Want La. Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) Primaried – Because He’s Pro-Life Pro-Life Politics North Carolina Louisiana John Bel Edwards Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Abortion 2019 Elections 2019

Louisiana’s Donna and Gov. John Bel Edwards (D). Screen grab via a 2015 Edwards campaign ad.

The Democrat purging of pro-life liberals continues.

The latest example comes from Louisiana, where a recent poll shows that young Democrats in the state want their Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards primaried – because he’s pro-life.

The Free Beacon reports:

A poll of registered Democratic voters conducted by We Ask America just days after the [fetal heartbeat] bill was signed into law found that 81 percent of respondents were already aware of Edwards’s decision, with a whopping 92 percent of young registered voters saying they knew about the legislation. Unsurprisingly, 60 percent of respondents said they opposed his abortion stance, including 80 percent of young voters.

Many are so displeased with Edwards that they want him to pay for his abortion stance with a primary challenge, the poll found. Forty-two percent of Democrats and 64 percent of young Democrats said they would like another Democratic candidate to be on the ballot in October.

[…]

The Free Beacon reported last week that Democrats in the state legislature are aware of the political problem the abortion issue causes Edwards and made a “strategic decision” to delay a major abortion ballot initiative.

It’s unclear how many of those same Democrats know the reason why Edwards is pro-life:

The Democrat’s anti-abortion stance stems from his wife’s pregnancy nearly 30 years ago. A doctor discovered their daughter, Samantha, had spina bifida and encouraged an abortion, but the couple refused.

Samantha is now married and works as a school counselor, according to the outlet.

“In eight years in the legislature, I was a pro-life legislator, 100 percent with the Louisiana Right to Life,” Edwards said during a Thursday press conference. “When I ran for governor, I said I was pro-life and so that’s something that’s consistent.”

Per Wikipedia, the Louisiana gubernatorial primary will be held on October 12, 2019 under what’s called a “jungle primary” system:

Under Louisiana’s jungle primary system, all candidates appear on the same ballot, regardless of party, and voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote during the primary election on October 12, 2019, a runoff election will be held on November 16, 2019, between the top two candidates in the primary.[1]

Polling from a month ago showed Edwards well ahead of the two Republicans challenging him, but per The Hill “[Edwards] has not yet secured a threshold that would allow him to avoid a runoff.”

That poll was also taken before Edwards signed the fetal heartbeat bill into law.

ChinaRX book cover

Rosemary Gibson, senior advisor at The Hastings Center, a medical ethics think tank, joins RedState front page contributor Sarah Lee on The Heartland Daily Podcast to discuss her book “ChinaRX: Exposing the Myths of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine.”

As the trade debate intensifies across the globe, Gibson uncovers a new wrinkle in the conversation. She lays it all out in her book: the dependence the U.S. has on China for its prescription drugs, both brand name and generic. Gibson notes that this dependence is both a national security risk because China could choose to weaponize its control of the market, and is also an economic risk because they could raise the prices of drugs and make them harder to access. In her book, Gibson reveals how the U.S. finds itself at the mercy of China in the drug marketplace and what she thinks we need to do to untangle ourselves from Chinese dominance. Not surprisingly it involves, in part, bringing the manufacturing of drugs back to the U.S.

The New York Times and The Washington Post Cover Up Joe Biden’s Stupidity

I am old enough to remember when then-Senator John Edwards (D-NC), at the time the 2004 Democratic Vice Presidential nominee, said:

If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve will get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.

I guess that we can blame all subsequent paralysis on the American voters, because they chose not to elect then-Senator John F Kerry (D-MA).

Well, former Vice President Joe Biden is older than I am, and was the senior Senator from Delaware at the time, so one would think that he’d remember that incredibly stupid statement from the Distinguished Gentleman from North Carolina. But, if he does remember it, it wasn’t enough to keep him from making an equally stupid one himself:

A lot of you understand what loss is and when loss occurs, you know that people come up to you and tell you ‘I understand’ if you lose a husband, a wife, a son, a daughter, a family member,” he said. “That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that — I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer.

That statement was so stupid, so over the top, that I’ll admit it, I wondered if it was #FakeNews, propaganda, an outright lie. After all, when I copied the statement and put it into Google, I got a return from Fox News and USAToday and a plethora of conservative sites, but there wasn’t one from The New York Times or The Washington Post.

So I went to the Times website, and did a site search for Biden cure cancer, thinking that, perhaps, the Times simply paraphrased it rather than giving the Grey Lady’s readers the direct quote. Well, as of 5:12 PM EDT, there was no report in the Times on the statement.

Then I went to the Post’s website, and ran the same search, at 5:22 PM. There was one return which could have mentioned it, but didn’t; it’s simply that those three words were in the opinion piece.

At any rate, I found the YouTube video of the campaign event, and listened to it myself, to see if it was really there. And I didn’t have to listen very long: the sequence starts around the 2:15 mark, and it’s right there. I’ll admit it: after watching that campaign video, I can understand why President Trump started calling him “Sleepy Joe.” Westlake Legal Group 1f642 The New York Times and The Washington Post Cover Up Joe Biden’s Stupidity Uncategorized Front Page Stories

So, yup, it’s true, and Fox News had it and USAToday had it, and a bunch of conservative websites had it, but from the two most important newspapers in the country? Crickets.

It’s not like they just didn’t have the time; Mr Biden’s campaign stop was yesterday, not today; more than 24 hours have elapsed since he went boneheaded stupid.

It used to be said, before Al Gore invented this internet thingy, that in any argument, if you could find it in The New York Times, you won your point. Now it seems as though the editors of the Times are behaving as though if you don’t find it in their newspaper, it just didn’t happen.

“All the News that’s Fit to Print” is the Times’ long term slogan. “Democracy Dies in Darkness” the Post started using, thanks to their #TrumpDerangementSyndrome. Yet the editors of the Times apparently saw Mr Biden’s statement as news that was not fit to print, while the Post’s leadership seems to think keeping its readers in darkness about our 47th Vice President’s over the top claim was a good thing.

We don’t really know how long the credentialed media have been simply avoiding news that was certainly fit to print to avoid weakening their preferred candidates and agendas, but once the internet took off, we could see what they were doing, including CBS News attempt to take down the younger President Bush with a story depending on forged documents. It’s becoming clearer every day: if you depend solely on the credentialed media for your news, you are going to be misled.
