We all know perfectly well that the Left benefits when people are suffering. This is generally the case, but particularly so in this day and age when the Left is banking on a large portion of the country to remain locked down due to the Chinese coronavirus fears. They know that they could not possibly hope to beat Trump when the economy is doing well, particularly as well as it was before this entire scenario happened, so Plan A for them, seeing as impeachment and removal did not work, is to destroy the economy as much as they possibly could.
Given the option, Democrats would demand Democrat-run states to remain as locked down as possible, implementing as many draconian policies as possible and blaming the inevitable economic collapse under such a circumstance on Trump’s “poor leadership” or something akin to that nonsense. They truly view our economic suffering as the single BEST option for winning an election.
Which is why it’s not surprising to see the Democrats in absolute panic over being given perhaps some of the worst news from THEIR OWN SIDE with regard to the possibility of Trump being re-elected.
You see, Harvard professor Jason Furman, a top economist for the Obama administration, said last month that the U.S. is on track to witness the “best economic data” in its entire history.
Furman, speaking to a group of bipartisan leaders, said: “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country.”
Politico reported: “Instead of forecasting a prolonged depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag – truthfully – about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever. Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic.”
The Left panics when there is the chance for the best economic prosperity, or at least raw data, that the country has ever seen. Doesn’t that tell you all you need to know about them? Instead of being happy over the prospect of a great economic recovery from the current situation unlike anything we had ever seen before, they are reportedly running around in sheer panic and worry. How anyone can say that they are the party of “The People” or how they are “compassionate and tolerant” is beyond reason.
According to Politico, one former top Obama administration official expressed that this scenario was their “big worry”, and when asked about the level of concern this sort of situation has amongst top Democrats, the Democrat replied: “It’s high – high, high, high, high.”
Furman had also explained that, once the economic data from the past few months began to come in, he realized that the data was indicative of an economic recovery mirroring the sort that economics see following major natural disasters or “industry-wide catastrophe[s] like the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.”
Furman further explained that consumption and hiring began to tick up “in gross terms, not in net terms,” describing the turnaround as a “partial rebound.” This bounce back “can be very very fast, because people go back to their original job, they get called back from furlough, you put the lights back on in your business. Given how many people were furloughed and how many businesses were closed you can get a big jump out of that. It will look like a V.”
Considering many of the economic policies that led to the economic prosperity pre-Chinese coronavirus are still in place, provided the vast majority of the country opens back up, I generally agree with the sentiment that it would bounce back big time. My biggest concern, as I have noted many times in the recent past, is that we might be too slow in reopening and businesses will soon find that they cannot afford to bring back their furloughed workers. Small businesses have definitely taken a massive hit over the last few months (and a piece from The Federalist indicates this shutdown did nothing to combat the virus, so this was an exercise in futility at best) and every day that they are disallowed from opening back up is another day in which they cannot make money and get back on track.
Bigger giants in the business world will fare better, I imagine, and will be able to hire back the people they had to furlough but things definitely got messed up. Thankfully, with states opening back up and people having the ability to go back to work basically unimpeded, I do agree with the sentiment that we should be seeing quite a bounce back in the economy over the second half of this fiscal year.
And I’m not the only one to agree, as Larry Kudlow, the head of the White House National Economic Council, told Politico that he “totally agree[s].” “Q3 may be the single best GDP quarter since regular data. 2nd half super big growth, transitioning to 4% or more in 2021.”
Other Trump officials, such as Kevin Hassett and Peter Navarro, also agreed with Furman.
Of course, while people on the Right are ecstatic over the prospect of an economic rebound (Furman further stressed to Politico, when asked about his “new fans” in the Trump administration, that “they get the rebound part, but they don’t get the partial part”, sort of trying to dampen the mood, but it also is fairly contradictory to the idea that the economy would rebound “like a V,” as he explained earlier), people on the Left are outright panicking, as I mentioned before, particularly since Trump has always been ahead of Biden in the polls when it came to handling the economy.
One Democrat told Politico: “Trump beats Biden on the economy even right now! This is going to be extremely difficult no matter what. It’s existential that we figure it out.”
Another former Obama White House official told Politico: “Even today when we are at over 20 million unemployed (remember, this was back in April), Trump gets high marks on the economy, so I can’t imagine what it looks like when things go in the other direction. I don’t think this is a challenge for the Biden campaign. This is THE challenge for the Biden campaign. If they can’t figure this out, they should all just go home.”
Political strategist Arthur Schwartz tweeted the Politico article, adding: “Dems are spooked because the economy is going to rebound quickly. Their strategy for November is to keep the country closed. Their interests are served by hurting as many Americans as possible.”
Exactly my thoughts. The Left seemingly can only hope to win elections when the American people are suffering greatly. I can only imagine the glee they felt back in 2007-08 when the financial crisis and Great Recession was hitting this country. I can also only imagine the glee they felt the last few months in seeing the number of unemployed cases rolling in. They probably fully expected the country to automatically blame Trump for the bad news just because “blame Trump” is basically the Left’s default response to anything.
China unleashed a deadly virus on the world and lied about it for months (and still continues to lie) and is trying to coerce other countries into not punishing them as they deserve? Nah, it’s Trump’s fault, particularly as he is “blaming” China. Which reminds me: Trump isn’t “blaming” China. To say that he is is to insinuate that China is blameless and without fault. Trump is holding China accountable for their deadly actions which have killed a hundred thousand Americans (and God knows how many Chinese citizens and residents) and hundreds of people around the globe (according to official estimates, of course, which have to take China’s numbers at face value even though China has been lying about their numbers).
But in any case, getting off of that slight tangent, I am not even a little bit surprised that the Left would be so perplexed at seeing Trump beating Biden even with the economic news that we are getting. The VAST majority of Americans aren’t going to blame Trump for this simply due to the fact that we KNOW why it’s happening.
The news that we are seeing aren’t the result of a fundamental problem in our economic system or in the policies we are espousing. They are the result of a virus that has gotten people so freaked out as to shut down everything (and, again, this was negligible at best when it came to dealing with the virus) and the actions of relatively independent governors deciding to shut down their states to one extent or another.
It is only the hardcore, borderline actually insane Leftists that are blaming Trump for this whole fiasco. It’s only the Left-wing political hacks in the fake news media, Washington and around the country that are blaming Trump for any of this.
I hope that Furman’s prediction regarding the economy is what really happens. Models are generally always going to be wrong because no one can account for absolutely everything that could occur, but they can sometimes be useful in understanding at least one possible outcome.
Provided the country opens back up almost in full (New York might take more time, but even Cuomo himself has begun to talk about reopening), we should be seeing better economic news as time goes on. Here’s hoping that this is what ends up happening.

Last Friday, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared on the Breakfast Club podcast being interviewed by co-host Charlamagne tha God to discuss Biden’s black voting base. The entire thing was not exactly great and Joe Biden delivered perhaps what is one of his most racist statements of his life, which is saying plenty.
At one point, Charlamagne told Biden: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.” Joe Biden seemed insulted by the notion that he would have more questions and replied: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
And the mask falls off. Time and time again, I have alluded to the Democrat Party essentially being a slave plantation of thought and Joe Biden all but confirmed that idea. You aren’t black if you are thinking of voting for Trump or if you are on the fence about who to vote for.
Naturally, this spurned backlash online from both sides of the aisle.
Machine Gun Kele tweeted: “I don’t know what kind of level of comfort you have to attain to make a statement like Joe Biden did in this video clip. Qwhite something.” (Not a typo, I think she completely meant to write that and I found it funny).
“Whoever helped Biden with this particular interview flopped. ‘You ain’t black’ will never bang coming from a white man’s mouth. Soz. I know your forefathers decided on the racial categories buy you really have a nerve whether in jest or not,” she continued.
Andrew Surabian tweeted: “A white guy lecturing black Americans that they ‘ain’t black’ if they don’t vote for him is about as condescending and racist as it gets.”
If you’re wondering what Charlamagne said following Joe’s statement, he seemed to have briefly brushed it aside to say: “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact – I want something for my community.”
Following the clip, the Breakfast Club’s twitter page tweeted: “#joebiden said ‘If you have a problem figuring out if you are for him or Trump… you ain’t black’ Do you agree??” followed by a poll, which at the time of me seeing it, was an overwhelming: “Wait what.. no,” with thousands of votes.
For those of you who have been tuned in to politics for some time, you know very well that Joe Biden often says seriously stupid things. I even highlighted some of them in an article a month ago, detailing gaffes from the misinformed to the outright racist. Let’s revisit some of the racist ones because Joe Biden has an explicitly RACIST history, both in terms of things he has said and in terms of his actions.
Let’s begin with one of his most infamous statements, which he made in 2007 with regard to then-Democrat candidate Barack Obama: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
Obviously, this was abhorrently racist and insinuated that no other African-American has ever been articulate, bright, clean or a “nice-looking guy”, which is wrong on so many levels. The Washington Post tried to excuse that statement as saying Biden was just referring to presidential candidates but even that doesn’t work. For one, not that I think he is a smart person, in fact I believe he is a deeply racist idiot, but Jesse Jackson ran for president in 1984 and 1988 and was a relatively serious contender for both. So to say that Obama was the first African-American presidential candidate (which Biden didn’t specify, but let’s just assume that’s what he meant to go along with the WaPo for now) that was “ the first mainstream African-American who is articulate, bright, clean and an nice-looking guy” dismisses Jesse Jackson altogether.
Again, I think Jesse Jackson is a racist idiot, but the Left doesn’t, so it was a stupid and racist comment no matter how you slice it.
Moving on to another instance of Biden being racist, we have the infamous “7-11” comment: “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
Ignoring the fact that Indians moving to America from India doesn’t automatically make them Indian Americans, so that statement makes little sense, there is no denying the blatant racism here. Despite the fact that he finished the statement as saying “I’m not joking”, it’s pretty obvious he was, indeed, joking. Or at least, I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt here, otherwise he is an even bigger racist than even I thought. But even if that was a joke, and I think most people would agree that it was, it was an awfully racist joke.
I’m not sure what point he was trying to get across, but one can hardly look at something like this and not consider it to be insensitive and racist. It alludes to the idea that Indian people can’t communicate with others well if they do not have a similar accent to their own. At least, that’s what I think Joe meant here, given he was referring to the self as having a “slight Indian accent”. But regardless of what he meant, it was awful and something the fake news media would NEVER let Trump or a Republican get away with.
Of course, there is also the infamous “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids”, alluding to the idea that ALL black people are poor and that all poor people are black, but we have had plenty of examples of things he has said that make Biden a blatant racist.
Now, let’s move on to things he has DONE that make Biden a blatant racist.
New York Magazine has a pretty good piece on Biden’s atrocious civil rights record that I think one should read (and it's surprising because the writer is clearly a Leftist himself). It’s titled: “Will Black Voters Still Love Biden When They Remember Who He Was?”
Of course, this was written back when the primaries were still going and Joe wasn’t the obvious winner, but it still holds up fairly well. Other than the title itself, I guess. Joe is still the same racist he always was in the past. He clearly hasn’t changed in that regard and fully expects all black people to fall in line and support him, otherwise they cannot be considered black. He is still the slave-driver that Democrats always have been, but let’s get down to the meat and potatoes of the article.
Right off the bat, the writer, Eric Levitz, lambasts Joe with things he has said in the past: “Joe Biden once called state-mandated school integration ‘the most racist concept you can come up with,’ and Barack Obama ‘the first sort of mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean.’ He was a staunch opponent of ‘forced busing’ in the 1970s, and leading crusader for mass incarceration throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. Uncle Joe has described African-American felons as ‘predators’ too sociopathic to rehabilitate – and white supremacist senators as his friends.”
Following that, he mentions that “Biden helped kill the most effective policy for improving black educational attainment that America has ever known.”
He talked about how, originally, Joe Biden was in favor of desegregating schools, until his constituents were against it. After some time, he argued that “forced busing was appropriate for the South (where segregation was the product of racist laws), but unnecessary for the North (where, Biden pretended, it merely reflected the preferences of the white and black communities.),” according to New York Mag.
“Once in the Senate, Biden continued to triangulate, voting for most, though not all, of the anti-busing amendments that came before him. But for his overwhelmingly white constituents, nothing less than massive resistance to busing would suffice. The New Castle County Neighborhood Schools Association booed Biden off the stage at one event in 1974. One year later, the Delaware senator broke ranks with northern liberals – and joined his virulently racist North Carolina colleague Jesse Helms in voting to kneecap all federal efforts to integrate schools, anywhere in the country.”
The Helms amendment, which aimed to give the federal government the ability to withhold funds from schools that refused to integrate, failed, but Biden implemented an amendment of his own, “stipulating that none of those federal funds (of a $36 billion education bill), could be used by school systems ‘to assign teachers or students to schools… for reasons of race.’ His amendment would prevent ‘some faceless bureaucrat’ from ‘deciding that any child, black or white, should fit in some predetermined ratio,’” according to historian Jason Sokol.
Sokol continued: “Like the Helms gambit, [Biden’s provision] would still gut Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. But this time, a number of liberal senators that had opposed Helms’ amendment now supported Biden… Watching his liberal colleagues defect, Republican Jacob Javits of New York mused, ‘They’re scared to death on busing.’ The Senate approved Biden’s amendment. Biden had managed to turn a 48-43 loss for the anti-busing forces into a 50-43 victory.”
NY Mag notes that “The NAACP called Biden’s proposal ‘an anti-black amendment.’ The Senate’s sole African-American member, Ed Brooke, called it ‘the greatest symbolic defeat for civil rights since 1964.’”
It’s worth mentioning, though the NY Mag completely ignores it, that Ed Brooke was the first African-American to be elected to the Senate and that he was a Republican.
The reason it’s worth mentioning this is that Joe Biden, following the passage of his amendment, employed a tactic that the Left often uses against the Right: calling them the real racists.
“The new integration plans being offered are really just quota systems to assure a certain number of blacks, Chicanos, or whatever in each school. That, to me, is the most racist concept you can come up with. What it says is, ‘In order for your child with curly black hair, brown eyes, and dark skin to be able to learn anything, he needs to sit next to my blond-haired, blue-eyed son.’ That’s racist!,” Joe Biden remarked in an interview in 1975.
That same year, he essentially repeated his thoughts in an interview with NPR: “I think the concept of busing… that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride… a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality.”
It is interesting to see what b.s. the Left would use to justify the unjustifiable. From denying the humanity of unborn babies to denying the benefits black people get when they attend desegregated schools over segregated ones (studies show that black kids who attended desegregated schools earned an average of 25% more than those who attended segregated ones), the Left will stop at nothing and come up with the most insane b.s. to deny humans their God-given rights.
Moving on, and trying to keep things a bit short now since this article is so long already, we have the most obvious contribution to black suffering that Biden has made: the 1994 crime bill and a facet of other tough-on-crime bills that disproportionately affect black people.
“During the 1980s, Biden helped pass laws reinstating the federal death penalty, abolishing federal parole, increasing penalties for marijuana possession, expanding the use of civil asset forfeiture, and establishing a 100-to-1 sentencing disparity for possession of crack cocaine and powder cocaine,” according to New York Mag.
And while I agree with some of these things, namely the reinstating of the federal death penalty and being tough on drugs, these are things the Left often decries as “racist” and Biden has helped in pushing them through and getting them passed in the Senate.
Not to mention the ’94 crime bill itself was created by him.
In 1989, when H.W. gave a national address about his war on drugs, Biden said that Bush wasn’t being “tough enough, bold enough, or imaginative enough to meet the crisis at hand.” Biden called for tougher measures of increasing police presence to “catch the violent thugs”, increasing the number of prosecutors to convict them, increasing the number of judges to sentence them and increasing the number of prison cells to “put them away for a long time.”
Again, I, myself, am an advocate for tough sentencing for drug operations, dealers and (slightly less) for drug possession. But the Left currently is all for letting people mess themselves up in whatever way possible and Joe is their CURRENT NOMINEEE and he has this kind of track record when it comes to putting black people in jail.
This is without mentioning his comments regarding black youth possibly becoming “predators 15 years from now.”
There is plenty more to discuss when it comes to Biden’s blatant racism, such as the fact that he openly BRAGGED about receiving an award from segregationist George Wallace in 1973 and saying “We (Delawareans) were on the South’s side in the Civil War”, thereby including himself among the people who SUPPORTED THE PRO-SLAVERY SOUTH, but I think you get the point and this article is long enough as it is.
Biden fully expecting black people to submit to his Democrat whip and be enchained to his Leftist collar is really par for the course for the despicable man.
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”

I just love days like today when the Left gives me all the ammo that I could possibly want to utterly and completely humiliate and destroy them with everything that I have. Such an opportunity was given to me when, following the Reade accusations that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her (with her being the eighth woman to come forward to accuse Biden of sexual assault/harassment), the Left switched from their “believe all women” platform to “believe the women who accuse conservatives” platform pretty darn obviously.
And nowhere has this switch been more obvious than in a recent New York Times op-ed written by feminist Susan Faludi, who writes: “’Believe All Women’ Is a Right-Wing Trap.”
Yes, apparently, we all were just hallucinating the idea that the Left insisted we should believe each and every woman that would come forward with “her truth” with regards to sexual assault. Apparently, it was just conservatives using that phrase just to attack Joe Biden and whatever other Leftist who got caught in this same sort of trap that the Left tried to set on right-wingers like Kavanaugh and Trump.
Apparently, the actual phrase is “believe women”, which is somehow different from “believe all women”. Apparently, the phrase “believe women” is supposed to mean that we take sexual assault claims seriously without throwing away due process and without “reflexively doubting them”, as Jill Filipovic tweeted upon reading the article.
It’s worth mentioning the load of crap that this whole thing is.
Filipovic, in her tweet, claims that “feminists never said ‘believe all women’ – the right inserted the ‘all’. Feminists said ‘believe women’: that is, start with the assumption that women are telling the truth instead of reflexively doubting them.”
Again, that’s a load of crap, not to mention a hilarious attempt at gaslighting. LITERALLY ALL FEMINISTS, WHEN THE METOO MOVEMENT BECAME A THING, STARTED SAYING “BELIEVE ALL WOMEN.” Filipovic either doesn’t remember (how convenient) or is straight-up lying and gaslighting, which is the most likely possibility simply because of the fact that the accusation is being thrown at the Democrats’ last hope of beating Trump in November: Creepy Joe Biden.
Let me share with you just a few examples of the many, MANY times feminists and Leftists in general have used the phrase “believe all women.”
Let’s begin with a tweet from The View on December 8th, 2017:
“’Rapes and sexual harassment are the least-reported crimes in our country because women are afraid they will not be believed and that they will be shamed – and we need to change that!’ Sunny on why she believes it’s essential to believe all women coming forward with allegations.”
From Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) on September 26th, 2018, with regards to the Kavanaugh accusations: “We stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, & Julie Swetnik. #BelieveAllWomen.”
That one in particular is hilarious to me because not only does she use the hashtag that the gaslighting leftists insisted feminists never used, but she is also adding Julie Swetnik, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of being at ten parties where she herself had been “raped”, though she never accused Kavanaugh of doing the “raping”. The reason I find it hilarious is because listening to her story for five minutes is all it takes to recognize how utterly bogus and ridiculous it is, not to mention fairly irrelevant, since she never accused Kavanaugh of partaking in the acts she claims happened in such parties.
But regardless of that tangential point, we can clearly see that she is earnestly using the full phrase and unless she’s secretly a right-wing operative or something like that, I guess that’s a case of a LEFTIST, FEMINIST USING THE PHRASE THAT FILIPOVIC INSISTED THEY DIDN’T USE.
From NPR: “’Believe all women’ has been the rallying cry of the #MeToo movement – a mantra embraced by some but dismissed by others as naïve. The tension over the credibility of women is nothing new, especially in rape investigations.”
And here’s an image from one of the protests regarding the Kavanaugh hearings:
All it takes to classify a woman as a “survivor” is simply her telling her story, and Tara Reade has told her story extensively to a number of news outlets. All of a sudden, however, we are not to believe ALL “survivors” and women.
From the University of Oregon’s Organization Against Sexual Assault: “We must educate young boys on the meaning of consent and instill the value of women’s safety in them from a young age. #BelieveAllWomen #consent #MeToo.”
From a Democrat candidate for the North Carolina Senate: “After taking cyberstalking plea deal, WNC’s Rep. Henson to resign. #AboutTime #BelieveAllWomen #endofcorruption #DrainTheSwamp.”
From a mental health counselor who could probably use one himself: “This a**hole assumes the allegations of rape and sexual assault against Trump are fake, but I would bet good money he believes Juanita Broaddrick. #BelieveAllWomen.” (Worth mentioning that, upon finding this tweet, I found a reply that read: "That hashtag is a winner. Thank you. I wish other men believed." which cracked me up when I saw it because this woman wrote it at the time the original tweet was made and she 100% meant what she said).
Time after time, ever since the phrase was brought up, it has been used by the Left sincerely to attack any political opponents they can use the tactic of accusations against. Whenever a woman came forward with a story of sexual assault, we were to believe she was telling the truth and disparage the man that she was accusing, without hearing his side of the story and without granting presumption of innocence.
But now that Joe Biden has been accused for THE EIGHT TIME of some sort of sexual misconduct, even though there is AMPLE evidence of such things from just the pictures I shared in the very FIRST article I wrote discussing the Reade allegations, the response from the Left has been nothing short of a betrayal of the standards they had been trying to set for the last couple of years.
When it’s one of THEIR OWN who is being credibly accused of sexual assault, they either bury the story (like they had been trying to do with the SEVEN other women who came forward to accuse him) or they attack and disparage the accuser, accusing her of lying for Trump’s political benefit or simply being an affront to “progress”.
And the most hilarious part of all of it is that the argument they are trying to use, that the phrase should be “believe women”, not “believe all women”, doesn’t work because both signify the same thing.
There is no significant difference between “believe women” and “believe all women.” The “all” is IMPLIED in the former! Tara Reade is still a woman. The phrase they apparently believe should be used is “believe women” WHICH STILL APPLIES TO HER!
These idiots can’t even gaslight us right! They are arguing for a distinction without a difference! Even if they were right about feminists never having used the latter term, which is 100% wrong, as I just demonstrated, their argument STILL wouldn’t suffice to discredit Reade. She is still a woman and they are still insisting that women be believed.
And the argument that we don’t “reflexively doubt” the woman making the allegations is still ridiculous because NO ONE reflexively doubts women making allegations. What we do is not rob the person being accused of their presumption of innocence while still taking the woman’s allegations with the seriousness it deserves, if it deserves it at all. Accusations like the one from Blasey Ford or any of the other Kavanaugh accusers barely deserved any seriousness because of the fact that NONE of them brought forth any evidence of such misconduct from Kavanaugh.
Ford accused him DECADES after the incident happened. And unlike Reade, who waited almost as long to come forward with her story, Ford never told anyone about what supposedly happened when it supposedly happened. Reade told her mother, brother and those close to her soon after she was allegedly assaulted by Biden. CNN tried to delete a video of a phone call Reade’s mother made to Larry King’s show to talk about it, showing that Reade indeed told her mother around the time that the incident occurred.
Ford came forward with her accusation only when Kavanaugh was about to be the newest Supreme Court Justice and she never told anyone about what happened until the time she made the accusation. And the witnesses she brought forth either did not corroborate her story or outright REFUTED her story.
And keep in mind, Ford was THE MOST CREDIBLE out of all of Kavanaugh’s accusers. Each of the accusers that came forth after Ford were less and less credible, up to Swetnik, who sounded like a loon because she repeatedly attended parties held by the same people she accused of raping girls in those parties.
We didn’t not believe Ford because we “reflexively” doubt women coming forward with sexual assault allegations. We didn’t believe Ford because HER STORY WAS FULL OF HOLES, SHE KEPT CHANGING IT, SHE NEVER TOLD ANYONE BEFORE COMING FORWARD, SHE HAD NO CORROBORATING WITNESSES AND WAS VISIBLY TRAINED BY ALYSSA MILANO ON HOW TO ACT LIKE AN INNOCENT GIRL IN FRONT OF A JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, HALF OF WHOM WERE DEMOCRATS WITH AN AGENDA LIKE SHE WAS.
And that last part was the most important one, because it’s easily provable. A video from September of last year showed Blasey Ford’s attorney “telling attendees at a feminist conference that her client’s testimony against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a politically motivated move to protect Roe v. Wade,” according to Newsweek. So it is painfully obvious that the ONLY reason Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault wasn’t because he did it but because he posed a threat to their paganistic and satanic desire to KILL THEIR OWN CHILDREN SHOULD THEY PLEASE.
Meanwhile, Reade has far more going for her story being true than Ford ever did and Reade is, herself, a Democrat who in all likelihood hates Trump’s guts, so she has far less of a reason to come forward with accusations because of politics.
In all of this, keep in mind the one and ONLY reason the Left is saying the things they are saying: the target of these accusations is Joe Biden. If Tara Reade had accused Trump of sexual assault, even if she didn’t bring with her any sort of evidence or witnesses, she would be celebrated and treated like a QUEEN, much like Ford was. But because she is accusing Joe Biden, the rules of engagement have to be changed.
All of a sudden, the phrase the Left adopted when attacking political opponents, “believe all women” became so problematic that some of their members believed they should gaslight everyone and claim no feminist ever actually used it, when they very clearly did.
All of a sudden, that phrase is a “right-wing trap”, not because the Left has never used it but because it can be used against them by the Right.
So, they ignore the standards they set for other people as soon as they are used against them. Not the first time it’s happened; won’t be the last. But it is always glorious to see karma biting them in the rear and people trying to get them to operate under the rules THEY set.

A little more than a week ago, I talked about how people trust Trump over Biden when it comes to both the economy and handling the coronavirus pandemic, according to Reuters, and I mentioned how it was interesting that Reuters, of all polling organizations, was reporting this. However, we have something today that is a little bit more unexpected:
President Trump beats Joe Biden in several key battleground states by a decent margin, and this is being reported by CNN, the same people who have run fake news story after fake news story, coupled with fake news poll after fake news poll, regarding Trump, Russia and whatever else they can falsely accuse him of doing. These very same people, who not too long ago I talked about how they went from accusing Trump of colluding with Russia to actually colluding with Russia themselves when it came to reporting the pandemic in the “former” Soviet Union, are now reporting that their boy, Joe Biden, isn’t doing all that well.
Now, in their national poll, and what they will likely wish to focus on, they have Joe Biden beating Trump 51 to 46 percent. However, as we all well and truly know, the election is never a national race, but a race for all 50 states, and as I just said, Trump has Joe beat in plenty of the most important ones.
As a whole, CNN’s poll of 15 battleground states (Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin) shows President Trump beating Joe Biden by seven points, 52 to 45 percent with a margin of error of 3.7 percent.
Funny enough, this was also coupled with the fact that earlier in the week, CNN was forced to publish another poll which showed President Trump’s approval rating at its highest in the poll: 45%. Despite all of their hackery and their political attacks that are very obviously biased (and they don’t even try to hide their bias anymore), despite everything they’ve tried throwing at him, he’s only come out of each and every attack stronger than before.
It also doesn’t help the Left that Joe Biden has been marred in controversy over the past couple of months given the Tara Reade situation that Democrats and the media are DESPERATELY trying to bury under the rug (I find it hilarious that Schumer is panicking and was also satisfied with just Biden’s denial).
Another aspect that might not exactly help the former Vice President is the fact that he was very clearly involved in the witch hunt of Gen. Michael Flynn, given released records that showed he both was in the meeting where Obama and his staff were discussing Flynn and that Joe Biden was among the MANY people who asked for Flynn’s “unmasking” in official documents (which were first reported by CBS News but the Biden camp has forced the news organization to get rid of the story, further showing Biden lied about not bullying the media).
But getting back to the polling, RealClearPolitics’ poll of polls, which is a poll taking the averages of various polls, shows Biden’s popularity slipping following the Tara Reade story. Just a couple of months ago, Biden had a 51 to 44 percent lead on Trump, but now, Biden has slipped to 47 percent and Trump sits at 43 percent.
Trump’s job approval has also gone up in that particular poll, sitting at 45%.
Getting back to the CNN poll itself, it finds that Trump beats Biden with Independents, 50 to 46 percent. Biden has the advantage with women (funny enough) at 55 to 41 percent. Minorities also overwhelmingly support Biden over Trump 69 to 26 percent, but that is actually not particularly awful for Trump, as Republicans tend not to be too favored by minorities and Trump sits at 26% with them in that poll, which is rather high, all things considered. If that number holds, Trump will win plenty of minorities in the election.
In any case, Trump beats Biden with men, 50 to 46 percent and with white voters, 55 to 43 percent. Strangely enough, Biden has an advantage over Trump when it comes to older voters, those aged 45 and up, holding a six-point advantage over Trump, which is a bigger advantage than what he has with young voters, which is a three-point lead over Trump.
CNN commented on this, saying: “Though other recent polling has shown some signs of concern for Biden among younger voters and strength among older ones, few have pegged the race as this close among younger voters. The results suggest that younger voters in the battleground states are tilted in favor of Trump, a stark change from the last CNN poll in which battleground voters were analyzed in March[.]”
Breitbart News chalks this up to being the Bernie effect, with many of those young voters having been Bernie supporters and being disenchanted and outright enraged that Bernie once again got screwed over by the DNC and was kept from being the nominee. But this is not the first time we have heard of Biden, or even Democrats in general, not getting the youth vote to turn out.
Just two months ago, I wrote an article about how young people largely don’t tend to vote. In it, I showed a graphic that displayed reported rates of voters by age, showing the youngest demographic – those 18 to 29 years of age – voting at far fewer rates than those who are older than them.
However, there is a noticeable difference between people who turn out to vote and people who voice support. Plenty of young people voiced their support for Bernie Sanders, but notably fewer actually turned out to vote for him. Biden doesn’t even have all that much SUPPORT from young voters, which definitely will come to hurt him with that demographic come November (again, if this holds up).
Of course, he does have a very strange and nonsensical lead with older voters, and those tend to vote more, but I sincerely doubt that would be anywhere close to near enough to secure an electoral victory.
Again, the CNN poll itself shows Trump soundly beating Biden in key battleground states. Joe could very well win the popular vote (maybe), but the electoral college is where the votes are most important and he isn’t doing too well, it seems.
What’s more, considering the economic recession that we are about to face because of Leftist governors’ decision to keep their states closed just to hurt Trump (which will undoubtedly come to bite those Leftists in the rear come November, if the previous special election was any sort of indication), people know we will need a president who can quickly and effectively rebuild the economy and Trump has Joe soundly beat on that area as well, with a margin of 54 to 42 percent on Joe.
So both Reuters and CNN show that voters trust Trump with the economy more than Joe Biden, and it seems they largely know just who is responsible for the economic downturn that we are about to face: the “Resistance” Democrat Party, particularly the Democrat governors, who are choosing to shoot themselves on the foot just to get a chance to hurt Trump.
But as with Reuters, it is extremely interesting that CNN would be the ones to report this. Usually, they have nothing but negative (fake) news to report on Trump, but every once in a while, they are forced to at least relatively face the reality that they abhor: Trump is nowhere near as unpopular and despised as they say that he is.
Now, there is still plenty of time before the election, but if these numbers hold, I don’t really see a way Joe beats Trump (and as I have said many times in the past, this confidence should not translate to complacency for us Trump supporters and voters, as that is the only thing that could definitely beat the President).

Two Fridays ago, Joe Biden appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with Mika Brzezinski (who, as I said in the article talking about it, did a pretty decent job) to speak about the allegation made by Tara Reade that he sexually assaulted her. Just appearing and addressing the allegations, denying them outright, made the Women’s March, which had previously been calling for Joe to address it with seriousness, perfectly satisfied and content with his answer.
We already knew how much of a joke the Women’s March was, but this is pathetic, even for them, though not unexpected. The Women’s March is nothing short of a Leftist political hack group aimed at targeting and destroying conservatives through accusations of sexual assault. Whenever one of their own is accused, however, a simple denial of the allegations is enough, when the same denial is seen as insufficient or even as an outright lie when done by the Right.
To remind you, this is the same organization that gave birth to the phrase “believe all women,” so that’s why this is particularly pathetic. They should change it to “believe all women (who accuse conservatives, but not the ones who accuse our guys)”.
In any case, following Joe’s interview and denial of the accusations, the Women’s March tweeted: “We are glad to see Joe Biden take a step in addressing this issue head-on. This is what is necessary to create a culture where survivors can come forward without fear of reprisal. We’ve come a long way on this, but still have a long way to go. Only Joe Biden can speak to his past, and we are glad he has begun to do so with his statement. It’s not on survivors or women to answer for him.”
What a load of crap. First of all, it took him FIVE WEEKS to address the issue. He had hoped his buddies in the corrupt fake news media would do the dirty work for him and not cover the allegation, hoping it would go away on its own. Ultimately, he couldn’t do that and when he realized it (or was told it), he decided to talk about it five weeks after the fact when there was mounting pressure to talk about it.
Second, is that really helpful for a culture of survivors coming forward without fear of reprisal? Funny, because Joe Biden, in 1993, ultimately FIRED Reade after she had made a formal complaint about him (and I will talk about this in a moment). She faced reprisal. Joe’s actions do not speak of a man who is sorry for what he did. He has tried EVERYTHING to hide what he did, which is why the following from the Women’s March is so ironic:
In a separate statement, the group says that they take women’s “allegations seriously” and that Biden “modeled” what a proper response to this sort of accusation should be because he allowed “for a fair inquiry of the facts to be conducted by journalists or other investigative bodies without interference.”
Again I say: what a load of crap. He has denied access to his Senate papers which are in the hands of the University of Delaware. If you were to find the complaint by Tara Reade about his sexual assault, it would be there, and Biden knows it and is denying people access to it. The Women’s March is flat-out LYING to protect their guy because they know that he is indefensible but they need someone to go against Trump. Speaking of which, the idiots actually think this puts them in A BETTER POSITION to win in 2020:
“To those concerned about what this means for the election: By addressing these allegations, we are improving our chances of winning in 2020. As we saw in 2018, when women are respected and empowered, we turn out in force.”
Yeah, right. Biden looks EVEN MORE GUILTY in the way that he addressed the allegations, as I said in my article’s very title.
It’s extremely ironic, but not surprising, that the Women’s March would sidle up to Biden simply by him denying the allegations. They did not offer Kavanaugh the same grace by any stretch of the imagination, even though Blasey Ford had NOTHING to corroborate her story. Even the witnesses she brought up CHALLENGED her story, either not remembering the house party or outright refuting the allegations made by Ford, and still, these dishonest hacks decided to believe her.
Meanwhile, here I am offering SEVEN pieces that corroborate Tara Reade’s story of her being sexually assaulted by Joe Biden in 1993 (though this won’t do anything to convince anyone on the Left, that’s for certain).
First, we have Lynda LaCasse, who was a former neighbor of Reade’s in the mid-90s. In an interview with Business Insider’s Rich McHugh, who helped Ronan Farrow break the Harvey Weinstein story, LaCasse said: “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.” LaCasse explained that in 1995 or 96, Reade had told her of what had happened, saying: “I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him. And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn’t feel there was anything she could do.”
That aligns with Reade’s own story, which she told numerous sources, including Business Insider, that Joe Biden pushed her up against a wall and sexually assaulted her with his fingers.
LaCasse continued: “[Reade] was crying. She was upset. And the more she talked about it, the more she started crying. I remember saying that she needed to file a police report. I don’t remember all the details. I remember the skirt. I remember the fingers. I remember she was devastated.”
And if you think she’s just some “conservative operator” or something, she admits to McHugh that she’s not only a “very strong Democrat” but also that she’s “for Biden,” indicating an intention to vote for him regardless of this story (which honestly repulses me, but whatever).
This is a Biden supporter and even she is acknowledging that Reade’s story is true and that it needs to be more than fully addressed.
Second, there’s Lorraine Sanchez, who told Business Insider (in the same article where LaCasse's interview happened) that she “worked with Reade in the office of a California state senator in the mid-‘90s… that she recalls Reade complaining at the time that her former boss in Washington, D.C., had sexually harassed her, and that she had been fired after raising concerns.”
She said that “[Reade said] she had been sexually harassed by her former boss while she was in D.C. and as a result of her voicing her concerns to her supervisors, she was let go, fired.”
Third, Collin Moulton, who is Reade’s younger brother. McHugh also spoke to Moulton and in those conversations with him and another person (Sanchez), he says that “they struck me as extremely credible.”
McHugh states: “I drilled down with the details of the story, and they matched up with her story, with Tara’s story.”
Fourth, there is one anonymous corroborating witness, who confirmed Reade had told her about the sexual assault at the time and McHugh also found her to be “extremely credible.”
Fifth, another anonymous corroborating witness, who says she was a former intern under Reade in Biden’s Senate office at the time. She says she was not told of the incident, “but [the witness] said… in mid-April of 1993, Tara was abruptly no longer her supervisor. So the timing matches exactly with what Tara was saying.”
Sixth, there is the 1993 videotape of Reade’s mother calling CNN’s Larry King on his show to ask for advice. According to The Intercept, the same source that first covered Reade’s story, “In interviews with The Intercept, Reade also mentioned that her mother had made a phone call to ‘Larry King Live’ on CNN, during which she made reference to her daughter’s experience on Capitol Hill. Reade told The Intercept that her mother called in asking for advice after Reade, then in her 20s, left Biden’s office.”
Obviously, CNN would never try to let people know about the tape and actively tried to hide it, erasing the episode of Larry King’s show where the call took place from their archives, but you know what they say: “what’s on the Internet is forever,” and an everyday Joe (not that Joe) found it after listening to the Katie Halper podcast. Here is the transcript of that call:
King: “San Luis Obispo, California, hello.”
Caller: “Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him.”
King: “In other words, she had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?”
Caller: “That’s true.”
Personally, I don’t think it was “out of respect” for Biden, but out of fear, that she didn’t go to the press over it. I don’t know Reade or what she was thinking at the time, but I do know that, if I were a woman and were sexually assaulted by a prominent Senator (or anyone, really), regardless of who that person is and regardless of whether or not I previously respected that person dearly and whether or not I agreed with his political views, I would not have a shred of respect for that person after the fact. But I would have fear, and that, I think, was the driving force behind Reade not telling her story at the time.
She was younger and she didn’t want to challenge a powerful figure, whom she admired and respected and agreed with. But Reade’s mother’s story, the little that she told with the few details she provided, aligns with the events that took place in Reade’s life, down to the timing of it all.
And finally, we have the seventh piece, which is the most convincing piece of corroborating evidence we have so far. Yeah, if you thought the others were decent enough, then take a look at court documents from 1996, filed by one Mr. Theodore Dronen, Reade’s ex-husband, in fighting a restraining order she filed during his and Reade’s divorce:
“I met [Reade] in the spring of 1993 while working in Washington D.C. At the early stages of our dating, [Reade] felt comfortable confiding in me as we both worked for members of Congress. On several occasions, [Reade] related a problem that she was having at work, in U.S. Senator Joe Biden’s office. It was obvious that this event had a very traumatic effect on [Reade], and that she is still sensitive and effected [sic] by it today.”
Dronen noted that her “traumatic” experiences while working for Biden had tainted her “perception and judgment.”
There could well be another piece of corroborating evidence in the form of her harassment complaint, but that would be found in Biden’s Senate papers, which as I have said, are in the hands of the University of Delaware and Biden has denied people access to them, except for members of his own team (who will likely “lose” the papers regarding Reade, or at least, the complaint specifically, and claim they never found any such complaint).
All of this only makes the Women’s March statement and tweet look all the worse because Reade had FAR MORE evidence against Biden than Blasey Ford ever could have hoped to have against Kavanaugh and yet they choose to believe Biden when he just DENIES the allegation, as though what he says is Gospel.
Here’s hoping that more evidence comes forward of what Joe Biden did to Reade (and the seven other women who have accused him of sexual harassment/assault) and that Biden eventually finds himself in the very jail he would ironically want other accused men to be in.
Joe Biden deserves to go to the big house, not the White House.
“He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.”

Not that this ought to come as any surprise to anyone, as I don’t think people would prefer Biden over Trump to watch over the plants they have at home, but for Reuters to point this out is rather interesting.
According to a recent Reuters poll conducted earlier this week, 43% of registered voters said they would support Biden in November, while 41% said the same of Trump, making it a supposed toss-up. Of course, this is Reuters, so take these numbers with a bit of a grain of salt. Even they admit that such numbers, which used to show Biden with a “bigger” lead (6 points last week and 8 points in mid-April), basically make this election a toss-up. However, I highly doubt it’s anywhere as close as they think it is for a variety of reasons.
Funny enough, one of those reasons is actually stated in the article Reuters wrote to report on their poll. “The former vice president has been forced to run his presidential campaign from his Delaware home in keeping with restrictions aimed at combating the virus, which has killed more than 70,000 people in the United States and put 30 million people out of work.”
Now, a couple of things to say about this. First, just as a side note, the virus itself didn’t put 30 million people out of work. The decision by the governors to shut down their states and restrict “non-essential” businesses from being able to run (an unconstitutional act) is what has put 30 million people out of work.
Second, regarding what they said about Biden staying at home, that, I would argue, is one of the reasons it is not particularly close. Biden has been forced to essentially shut down his campaign, having to conduct television interviews to stay relevant. Trump has him far outclassed in terms of exposure with his briefings. And regardless of what the fake news media has tried to do with these briefings, both with the members of the press in the briefings themselves and the selective editing and coverage following the briefings in an effort to make Trump look bad (remember when the fake news media tried to tell people Trump wanted to inject people with Lysol? Why does anyone take these people seriously anymore?), it has not been working out as they had hoped.
Trump has only seen his numbers go up in this time. Time and time again, he has seen record highs in particular polls that usually show him to be detested (fake polls, of course, as they are usually oversampling Democrats).
Now, funny enough, not appearing in public might actually be to Biden’s BENEFIT. Since every time he appears on TV, he’s already a mumbling train wreck, constant appearances in campaign stops could further show him to be worse and worse, and especially during any debate he would have to have with Trump. Biden has even had time to rest at home and even that hasn’t kept him from sounding incoherent at best.
One person at New York Magazine even wrote: “Joe Biden is at his best when he’s neither speaking nor appearing in public. Will his campaign have to abandon its most effective strategy?” with relation to the Tara Reade situation which I will cover in a second.
Even someone at New York Magazine fully acknowledges that Biden is “at his best” when NO ONE CAN SEE OR HEAR HIM! Does that remind you of a certain witch from 2016, who couldn’t draw a fly to her rallies and was almost as much of a train wreck whenever she had such rallies?
Considering the declining health (mental in the case of Biden, physical in the case of Hillary) of the two candidates, the blatantly corrupt ties with foreign governments for personal gain and the similar idiotic ideologies, you could consider Biden to be the male version of Hillary, only Hillary was married to and protected a sexual predator while Joe is one.
Which brings us to the Tara Reade accusations, another reason why I don’t think it’s as close of a contest as Reuters might think.
Even Reuters points out: “Some of Biden’s most dominant recent headlines focused on a former U.S. Senate aide’s allegation that he sexually assaulted her in 1993.” This is already causing some rifts on the Left, at least with younger people (a demographic Biden was already struggling to gain support from), as “Progressive students in key swing state ditch ‘sexual predator’ Joe Biden,” according to Campus Reform.
Now, the insane Left will abandon the #MeToo movement if that’s what it takes to beat Trump, but that definitely doesn’t make them look good with non-hardcore-leftists.
Even Reuters tried to run cover for Biden in that very article, writing: “Biden said last week the alleged assault ‘never happened’ and asked the Senate to make public any documents related to the accusation by Tara Reade, who worked as a staff assistant in Biden’s Senate office from December 1992 to August 1993.”
That is a demonstrable lie. Joe Biden DID NOT ask the Senate to make public any documents related to the accusation by Tara Reade. In that very interview that Reuters is referencing, he, time and time again, refused to allow for Senate papers in the hands of the University of Delaware to be released, as I said in my article covering that interview. Reuters is trying to make Biden look like he has nothing to hide when he very much does and is actively trying to hide things.
This lie is among the reasons I tend not to trust polls even from Reuters unless they show their OWN GUY not exactly doing all that well. They have a reason to lie about how well Biden is doing but not about how poorly he’s doing.
Which brings me back to the actual poll, and the main topic of discussion for this article (got a bit sidetracked there, didn’t I?), that being that, according to the poll itself, people trust Trump over Biden with regards to the economy and handling the virus.
According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll, “45% of Americans said Trump was better suited to create jobs, while 32% said Biden was the better candidate for that. That pushed Trump’s advantage over Biden in terms of job creation to 13 points, compared with the Republican president’s 6-point edge in a similar poll that ran in mid-April.”
“Thirty-seven percent said Trump was better leading the country’s coronavirus response, while 35% preferred Biden. A similar poll in mid-April showed Biden had a slight edge over Trump when it came to the nation’s response to the disease.”
The poll regarding job creation doesn’t surprise me at all. Trump has always been touted as being a better candidate for the economy, even before he actually became president. His record as POTUS is a record of economic BOOM for our country, prior to the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent freak-outs from most of the country’s governors. Even while we face another economic rebuilding period in the coming months, Trump is far and away the better candidate to restore the lost jobs.
When it comes to handling the virus, Trump has also shown he is quite capable. As I have stated many times in the past (because it bears repetition, otherwise people lie about the facts), Trump ordered flight restrictions to and from China in late January, when Democrats, not the least of which being Trump’s Democrat opponent in Joe Biden, called him a “racist” and “xenophobe” for it and some of them still insist that he is that and that they would not have done the same WHEN SUCH MEASURES HAVE HELPED SAVE COUNTLESS LIVES.
When Andrew Cuomo was begging and crying for thousands more ventilators, Trump shut him down, noting that New York did not need as many ventilators as the governor thought they would, and Trump was right.
And any attacks the Left could throw at Trump really don’t stick. For example, the Left tried blaming Trump for not having enough N95 masks when Obama depleted the nation’s supply early in his own administration. Another example is that the Left blames Trump for the virus, at least for what it’s doing in the U.S. and hilariously claims China has been doing a better job when they have been hiding the truth from us since before we even knew about the virus and they continue to do so, continuing to claim few, if any, new virus deaths.
And, of course, there were the ridiculous fake news stories surrounding hydroxychloroquine, the drug that Trump (and Cuomo, but people seem to forget him here) often touted as helping beat the coronavirus, such as the ridiculous story of a woman and her husband who ingested fish tank cleaner because one of its ingredients included HQC, leaving her husband dead and her in the hospital and then went on to fully blame Trump (let’s be honest, that was likely a murder for political purposes).
Meanwhile, Biden has given good suggestions as to what to do… hours, days or even weeks after Trump HAS ALREADY THOUGHT TO IMPLEMENT THEM. For example, Biden suggested using the Defense Production Act in various ways. He made this suggestion after Trump had already done so.
There isn’t a single person in the world who could convince me Biden would have done a better job in handling the virus, especially considering he was one of the many people on the Left lambasting Trump for restricting travel to and from China (and then Europe once that place became more riddled with it).
But the fact that these numbers are the way they are is relatively important, at least considering that this is Reuters who is reporting them. In the article itself, they are shown to be lying, so they don’t exactly have much credibility, but to see them reporting a poll that makes the Biden camp appear to be weakening is telling.
Of course, as I have said many times in the past, good numbers for Trump should not give Trump supporters and voters license to not go out to vote in November. Complacency is always a killer for any campaign and at this point, we absolutely cannot afford to give the Left any sort of advantage if we are to keep America as America. I refuse to allow the communists to turn the USA into the USSR.

After about five weeks after Tara Reade’s sexual assault story came out to the public, Joe Biden has finally been forced to face the allegations made against him after mounting pressure surrounding the topic began to pile up.
However, it might have been better for Biden to have completely ignored the story because upon being interviewed by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi (who admittedly did a pretty good job here and didn’t lob softballs at Joe, as was honestly expected by everyone, including Joe), he fumbled and stumbled his way through the interview and only came out of it not only looking more unfit to be president but that he might even have something to hide, suggesting the probability of his guilt (and let’s not discount the probability he has done worse stuff as well).
You see, Mika began by asking the following:
“The first [question], about the University of Delaware records. Do you agree with the reporting that those records were supposed to be revealed to the public and then they were resealed for a longer time until, quote, after you leave public life? And if you agree with that, if that’s what happened, why did that happen?”
Mika is referring to the University of Delaware having scheduled to release Biden’s Senate papers (which were donated to them by Biden in 2012) in December of last year, but backtracked on that idea after Joe announced his candidacy for president.
Joe responded with:
“The fact is, that there’s are a lot of things – speeches I’ve made, positions I’ve taken, interviews that I did overseas with people, all of those things relating to my job. And the idea that they would all be made public, and the fact while I was running for public office, they could really be taken out of context. The papers are position papers – they are documents that existed, for example, when I met with Putin, or when I met with whomever. And all of that to be fodder in a campaign at this time – I don’t know of anybody who’s done anything like that.”
Navigating through the word jungle that Biden just expelled from his mouth, we find the following argument: “they shouldn’t release the records because I am running for president and it could hurt me.”
Does that sound like a good argument? He is literally arguing that people shouldn’t get access to his Senate records because they could be used against him. Well, considering they could have EVIDENCE OF SHOWING HE COULD HAVE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED TARA READE, I would imagine they ought to be used against him in a court of law.
This particular exchange is why I say that he makes himself out to look like he has something to hide, or even like he actually did it. Even when further pressured about the issue, when Mika suggested just looking for the records that have Reade’s name on them to avoid the other confidential stuff with Putin or whomever else, Joe still was adamant that they do not be released or used at all.
It makes it all the more suspicious that Biden has sent campaign operatives to the university to go through the records. I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden’s Senate papers all of a sudden got “lost” at some point in the future.
In any case, as Biden further pushed back against the idea that his Senate records be released, Mika resorted to asking the following:
“Are you certain there was nothing about Tara Reade in those records, and, if so, why not approve a search of her name in those records?”
Basically, the question is “if you are certain that Reade never made a complaint of that nature, why not allow for people to look through the records with just her name?” In essence, why not prove your innocence by showing there is nothing in those records about Reade’s complaints.
Biden responded seemingly confused: “Approve a search of her name?” I don’t think he was confused by the question, but by the fact he likely didn’t expect such a question. It’s a good and fairly tough one, and as I said previously, he probably expected this interview to be easy – giving him a chance to respond to the allegations, deny them, and basically be done with it without having to answer too much with regards to it.
Biden eventually responded with: “There is nothing. They are not there. I don’t understand the point you are trying to make. There are no personnel records by definition.”
Mika, at one point, once again pushed the question: “Are you absolutely certain, are you absolutely positive, there is no record of any complaint by Tara Reade against you?”
Biden’s response was perhaps the most confusing mess out of the whole ordeal and further goes to show Joe’s mental decline:
“I am absolutely positive that no one that I’m aware of ever was been made aware of any complaint a formal complaint made by or a complaint by Tara Reade against me at the time this was alleged happened 27 years ago or until they I announced for pres – well, I guess it was in April or May of this year.”
A couple of things about this. First, what?
Second, I find it a tad funny that at the end, it kind of sounds like he just jumped aboard a completely different train of thought.
Third, what does he mean “well, I guess it was in April or May of this year”? What is he referring to? The previous “sentence” doesn’t exactly help me pick up any context clues, but that was a particularly strange part. The fact that he also said “May of this year” is odd because that interview happened on the first of May, early in the morning.
Now, one could chuck it up to Joe saying absolute nonsense, or even forgetting what month it was (it’s a possibility given everything we have seen and heard from him, including the attempt at speech that he made just prior), but it’s like his mind completely switched gears to say “Oh, yeah, now I remember something and it could’ve been this.” The problem is I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT!
Is he talking about the formal complaint made against him that (most likely) is in his records? Is he talking about someone on his team coming up to him to remind him of this event or something related to it? I don’t even have a clue as to what he could possibly have meant, assuming he meant anything substantial at all.
Regardless of what he meant in that particular confusing moment, the other parts only go to show his possible and probable guilt. He doesn’t want anyone getting access to his Senate records, even if it’s just to search Tara Reade’s name in the records. He got awfully defensive here and likely for good reason.
Even former Hillary Clinton adviser Peter Daou absolutely RAILED Biden as the interview was happening: “THERE ARE ***SEVEN*** OTHER ALLEGATIONS AGAINST [Biden]. THERE ARE YEARS OF GROPING ON VIDEO. IT’S A PATTERN.”
And that’s likely the other reason as to why Biden doesn’t want to release the Senate records. It’s not simply that we might find Tara Reade’s complaint in there. It’s that we might find many other Tara Reade’s in there. As I have said time and time again with regard to this topic: Joe Biden’s sexual predation is well documented, with the mildest of things being inappropriate touching or sniffing of women’s and girls’ hair.
If you remember, back when I first talked about this story, I noted how a Nevada politician, Lucy Flores, “alleged that Biden had inappropriately sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head as she waited to go on stage at a rally in 2014.”
If you remember, I also noted how the witches at “The View” attacked Flores over this, seemingly choosing to not believe that particular woman (and color me surprised that many on the Left are choosing to believe Biden over the woman accusing him of sexual assault in 1993 and CNN choosing to delete an episode of the Larry King show that had Tara Reade’s mother calling in to the show to talk about the then-Senator’s assault, obviously excluding names).
If we got Biden’s Senate papers showing the likely VARIOUS complaints made against him, I would agree with Joe that they could be used against his presidential campaign, though for PRETTY GOOD REASON AS HE WOULD SHOW A TRACK RECORD OF SEXUAL PREDATION!
Of course, Leftists will try to pivot and point to Trump as being a “sexual predator” even though the allegations made against him are unfounded and without evidence completely (they tried this tactic in October in 2016 and the allegations all of a sudden stopped being a major story after he won).
However, no amount of spinning or pivoting can erase the likelihood of Tara Reade’s story being true and credible. Joe’s response to it has also been pretty abysmal, having pretty much ignored it as much as he possibly could until mounting pressure forced him to address it and delivering terrible answers to tough but fair and good questions from Mika (again, kudos to her for that).
Here’s hoping those Senate records don’t mysteriously “disappear”.

You have to be known as a particularly awful politician and particularly low-intelligence individual for someone like the world’s most infamous terrorist leader, Osama bin Laden, to believe you would be a terrible U.S. president. But that’s the case for Joe Biden, as a story from 2012 has resurfaced that indicates even the former FBI’s Most Wanted terrorist believed Biden would’ve been terrible for the U.S. were he to take office.
According to Breitbart News: “Osama bin Laden wanted to assassinate former President Barack Obama in the early 2010s as part of a plan to plunge the U.S. into crisis through the elevation of Joe Biden, whom the infamous terrorist leader believed was ‘totally unprepared’ to serve as commander-in-chief.”
The Washington Post first uncovered this plot back in 2012, and the plot to assassinate Obama was centered around shooting down Air Force One as the former POTUS toured Afghanistan with then-General David Petraeus. “Bin Laden briefed members of the war in Afghanistan, before being killed by U.S. forces in May 2011, according to documents seized from al-Qaeda’s compound,” according to Breitbart.
Bin Laden is said to have explained to his top lieutenants that “the reason is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the presidency… Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis.”
Bin Laden knew that Biden simply was not cut out for the job and knew that, if he were to take over as president, that would give al-Qaeda and other terrorist fighters in Afghanistan a bit more of an edge for reasons I will state in a moment.
Now, at the time of uncovering this plot, it was hardly a big deal to some people. The Obama White House was not particularly worried because, even though it was a plot to assassinate the president, they figured al-Qaeda lacked the resources to shoot down Air Force One. Of course, Air Force One is far more important than any other commercial aircraft and is suited for potentially dangerous targets. While plenty of the defensive parts of Air Force One are classified (for obvious reasons), some of the amenities feature electronic counter measures (ECM) to jam enemy radar and can eject flares if targeted by a heat-seeking missile.
So if that was the plot to assassinate Obama, it was almost certainly not going to work. However, that is not the point. I am glad that al-Qaeda never was able to assassinate Obama, and that plot was not going to work to that end, but the point is the reason for having put that plan together in the first place.
Bin Laden fully believed that, if Joe Biden became the President of the United States, it would lead the country into a crisis and allow for al-Qaeda to get a fighting edge over such an incompetent commander-in-chief. Even though Biden tries to argue that he would be a great president when it comes to foreign matters, military officers who have worked with the Obama White House note how utterly inadequate Joe Biden was even when he had the opportunity to lead (to an extent) as Vice President.
Former Department of Defense secretary Robert Gates, who worked for both the Bush and Obama administrations, said in a May 2019 interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he stood by statements he made in a memoir recalling that Biden had “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
When asked by the show’s host, Margaret Brennan, if Biden had the ability to “be an effective commander-in-chief,” Gates responded by saying: “I don’t know, I don’t know. I stand by that statement. He and I agreed on some key issues in the Obama administration, we disagreed significantly on Afghanistan and some other issues.”
“I think that the vice president has some issues with the military, so how he would get along with the senior military and what that relationship would be… I just think it would depend on the personalities at the time,” Gates continued.
Trump’s former Defense Secretary James Mattis was also critical of Joe Biden in his own memoir, saying that Biden “exuded the confidence of a man whose mind was made up, perhaps even indifferent to considering the consequences were he judging the situation incorrectly.”
This is all significant because Joe Biden advised Obama not to launch the raid on bin Laden’s compound, which resulted in the terrorist leader’s death (and Obama boasting about it as though he killed the guy himself), because he felt the risks were “too high”. Biden was so afraid of what raiding the bin Laden compound would lead to that, were he president at the time, he wouldn’t have greenlit the raid on bin Laden’s compound.
This, among other reasons, are why bin Laden felt confident that Joe Biden would’ve been a disaster for the U.S. as its commander-in-chief. When even the leader of a terrorist organization believed Biden would have led the U.S. into a crisis, at least when it came to the war in Afghanistan, how can anyone confidently say that he would make a good POTUS in general?
Now, of course, the idea most likely is that Biden won’t serve his full term and that whomever he picks as his running-mate, were he to beat Trump in the November elections, would have to almost immediately take the reigns as President of the United States. It’s probably for this reason that the sad and pathetic loser from Georgia’s gubernatorial elections in 2018, Stacey Abrams, is campaigning to be Biden’s VP. No one campaigns to be someone’s second place, unless they thought the first-place guy wouldn’t be around for long.
However, Biden will have to make the campaign about himself and will have to get people to vote for HIM. I don’t know how effective a strategy it would be to go for “vote for me to get in, but I will leave pretty much the day after I get inaugurated, so basically, vote for the VP.”
That, in combination with Biden’s heavily-documented mental decline and his clear love and admiration for, not to mention ties with, China, makes for someone that I don’t know if many people outside the Democrat Party would be willing to support.
Hardcore Democrats undoubtedly will (as will around 80% of Bernie’s supporters, but as I have noted in the past, that likely wouldn’t be enough) and NeverTrump Republicans like Romney, Flake and Meghan McCain also will support him, but will Independents? Will a sufficient number of Democrats who question his mental capabilities support him? Have some NeverTrumpers of the 2016 election come around to at the very least voting for Trump, if not necessarily liking and supporting him?
Biden has a lot of negatives going for himself and he would be thoroughly thrashed by Trump in a debate. The guy can’t even formulate complete sentences at this point, how is he supposed to debate a guy who will pull zero punches?
But regardless, you know the Democrats have found a disaster of a presidential candidate when OSAMA BIN LADEN thought he would be terrible as POTUS. And keep in mind, this was a Biden of roughly a decade ago. He has gotten MUCH worse since then.

We live in a rather interesting time, don’t we? Three and a half years of a Trump presidency has made a lot of people show their true colors. Democrats have shown their overly socialistic, sociopathic side for all to see. The mainstream media has shown a complete disregard for objective journalism, opting instead to spread pro-Leftist, anti-Trump propaganda. Formerly “conservative” pundits have shown that they are total RINOs, opposing the president that is fighting for everything they had been advocating for years. And in the midst of such showing of true colors, we see some switching of party allegiances.
For example, Justin Amash is a former GOP representative who left the party because of Trump and does not believe him to be a conservative in the least (he is definitely wrong, of course). Another example is Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who used to be a Democrat until his party went completely insane, particularly during the hoax impeachment trial, and is now a Republican.
Well, you can add Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones to the list of people going against their party’s wishes. According to The Hill: “Jones told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he was not switching parties but praised Trump’s policies on certain issues.”
“It’s very simple to me,” said Jones. “President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign.”
“There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” added Jones. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
“A generation of African American families have been devastated by draconian policies that Joe Biden supported and voted for when he served in the U.S. Senate,” Jones added in a statement to CBS 46. “A change was needed and President Trump took action.”
On Twitter, Jones shared a video officially showing his support and endorsement of the president, writing: “I’m a Georgia State Representative and lifelong Democrat. But in this election, I’ll be casting my vote for [Donald Trump]. I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Party left me.”
In the video he shared, he also pointed out reasons as to why he and other African Americans would/should be voting for Trump, which are the same reasons as the ones listed above: lowest unemployment rate for African Americans (before the pandemic, of course, which cannot be blamed on Trump but the Left sure is trying hard to do just that), supporting historically black colleges and instituting criminal justice reform.
It’s also worth noting that Trump’s opponent, Joe Biden, was one of the supporters and writers of the 1994 crime omnibus bill, which led to a great increase in incarceration for African Americans. Even Vox, the uber-Leftist news organization among Leftist organizations, noted back in June of last year:
“[W]ith Biden’s criminal justice record coming under scrutiny as he runs for president, it’s the mass incarceration provisions that are drawing particular attention as a key example of how Biden helped fuel the exact same policies that criminal justice reformers are trying to reverse. For some Democrats, the 1994 law is exhibit A for why Biden can’t be trusted to do the right thing on criminal justice issues should he become president.”
With Biden having been a key contributor to the writing of the law that led to one of the biggest reasons for African American families to be broken up, one can hardly blame Rep. Jones for throwing his support for Trump.
Now, he does say that he is not leaving the Democrat Party, but he did write in the tweet that the Party left him (and said it in the video he shared in that tweet), while also putting the hashtag: #WalkAway, which is the movement orchestrated by former Democrats who are witnessing their party move so far to the left as to be unrecognizable from things like the Nazi Party of Germany, the National Fascist Party of Italy, or the Communist Parties of the Soviet Union and China. So it’s a bit unclear as to whether or not he is leaving the party. Though for certain, the Party has left him and is currently trashing him.
Nikema Williams, chairwoman of Georgia’s Democrat Party, condemned Jones and his endorsement of the president, calling him an “embarrassment” and someone who does “not stand for our values,” having chosen to side with “a racist president who has made an all-out assault on Black Americans and has tried to rip away our health care.” You can tell she didn’t care to listen to anything Jones said, because the reasons he brings up are proof against the accusations of the insane Democrats. Trump is not racist and he is not waging an “all-out assault” against African Americans. If he was, he was doing a terrible job of it, what with helping them get jobs and give them an opportunity for upward mobility.
A Democrat Party leader from a county Jones represents promised to take “action” against Jones for his endorsement of Trump, because you are not allowed to stray from the Democrat Party plantation, particularly if you are an elected Democrat.
Seemingly, this isn’t the first time Jones has drawn ire from fellow Democrats, with Rep. Josh McLaurin saying: “Everybody already knew Vernon Jones wasn’t a Democrat. We knew when he hurled an anti-trans rant at Councilwoman Koontz,” noting an altercation last month between Jones and Stephe Koontz, a “transwoman” serving on the Doraville City Council. McLaurin added: “We knew when he repeatedly called human beings ‘illegals’ to rile Democrats up on purpose,” likely referring to illegal immigrants, as “human beings” in this instance is Leftist whacko code for illegal immigrants.
So it seems as though Jones has hardly been all-too espoused with the ideologies of the Left, if he seemingly had an “anti-trans” altercation with the transgender councilperson (and I’m being nice by putting it as “person” instead of the appropriate and true “councilman”) and is willing to call illegal immigrants by their proper title: illegal immigrants.
But it still is worth noting the changing of sides going on here, and again, Jones isn’t the first Democrat to switch sides in recent time. Van Drew outright switched Party allegiances during and after the sham impeachment trial and Jones, while he may try and remain within the Democrat Party, it is likely he will get kicked out of it for daring to go against the Democrat hivemind to “resist” Trump.
Freedom of thought isn’t allowed in the Democrat Party, so they absolutely hate it when one of their own strays from their allotted script.
Here’s hoping President Trump garners more African American support and defeats the senile Joe Biden come November.

Remember Jill Stein? The Green Party candidate from 2016? Well, she’s back and she’s recruiting some Bernie bros heartbroken at the crazy socialist’s suspension of his campaign.
On Twitter, Dr. Jill Stein wrote: “Bernie Sanders ran a good race. Now it’s clearer than ever: establishment Dems’ top priority is sabotaging progressives to maintain their own power. [The Green Party] welcomes all who understand that the fight for people, planet & peace must continue. #DemExit.”
Interestingly enough, this seems to be working to one extent or another, as some apparent Bernie bros have decided to hop aboard the Green Party train:
“Thanks, Jill. The Green Party represents what voters under middle age want but are told we can’t have: peace, equality, sustainability. Greens [bring] young people in to politics who otherwise wouldn’t touch it. The messages of hope are much appreciated,” wrote one user.
Another wrote: “Bernie dropped out of the 2020 Election for POTUS so now I’m #DemExitingForever & going GREEN,” coupled with a green heart emoji and a sunglasses emoji.
Another user wrote: “Green party has my vote!”
Now, it’s unclear how successful this bid at getting some Bernie supporters to vote in protest against Joe Biden will be, and there is still much time before the election occurs, but suffice to say that plenty of hardcore Democrats are livid with Stein. Given the fragility and clear mental incapability of Joe Biden, weaknesses that will be showcased heavily by the GOP throughout the campaign, as well as the fact that, for the second time in a row, the Democrats did whatever they could to block Bernie from being the nominee, I’m not surprised that Democrat voters hoping to defeat Trump come November would be threatened by even the Green Party taking votes away from them.
A few days ago, I wrote a piece about how Obama’s own campaign manager noted that Trump would win come November simply due to his strong base. Joe does not have a similar base to Trump’s and the Democrats are insufferable, even to Bernie bros, so there is a very real possibility that plenty of Bernie supporters will defect, either voting for Trump (I’ve also written about this), voting for a third-party candidate that has no chance of winning anything or staying home on Election Day.
So it’s no real surprise to see hardcore Democrat voters angry at Jill.
One user wrote: “Remember every green vote is as good as voting republican.”
I see this as an absolute win.
Another user sarcastically wrote: “I’m voting Green because I like Trump as well!!”
A perhaps unsurprising amount of Democrats brought up Russia as well:
“At least Biden never broke bread with Putin you Trader!” I think he meant to say “traitor” but auto-correct might’ve gotten in the way.
“Da, is good, this tweet. Vlad wants to know where to venmo the rubles,” wrote another user.
“Oh, go take a stadium of seats, Russian Asset.” You have to love it when Democrats accuse someone of being a Russian asset just because they are standing in the way or in opposition to them. They’ve gotten so used to calling people racist that “Russian asset” is now their last line of defense when they have no argument left to make.
Now, Jill Stein was a suspect of the 2016 Russian collusion hoax, with reports saying that Russia threw ad time into Stein’s campaign to draw away disgruntled Democrat voters from Hillary to help Trump win, but as with other Russian collusion reports, it was unsubstantiated and the reports were from NBC News, part of the cabal of fake news organizations seeking to discredit the Trump administration and destroy it.
But it’s still quite evident that, even three and a half years later, the Russia hoax is still in the minds of low-information voters who actually believe the b.s. the fake news media had been selling. Even despite the complete lack of evidence, even despite the Mueller report not finding anything about Trump colluding with Russia and being rather explicit about that fact, they still believe that there was Russian collusion at play and it might happen again this year.
Joe Biden is a weak enough candidate that Jill Stein trying to draw in Bernie supporters is a threat, and it very well might be to an extent. As I stated in a previous article, 15% of Bernie supporters say they will vote for Trump in November. Only 80% of Bernie supporters plan on supporting Biden, which is considerably less than what he needs (which is why he is saying that Bernie’s policies will be on the ballot even if Bernie isn’t).
That leaves about 5% of Bernie supporters who will not vote for either Biden or Trump, and could very well jump aboard the Green Party in protest to the Democrats. And again, this is not good for Biden. Trump’s base won’t abandon him and I believe support for him has grown considerably since 2016. As I have said many times in the past, he has proven himself to keep his promises (to the best of his ability, when he isn’t stopped by GOP traitors or the Democrats) and do what he said he was going to do. While there were doubts about those aspects from Republicans in 2016, those doubts have been dispelled in the minds of those who are not NeverTrump, former Republican, traitors.
The candidate who is at high risk of losing support and votes is Joe Biden. Hardcore Democrat voters still living in the Democrat plantation will not abandon the Democrat candidate to be sure, but there are Democrat voters disgruntled with the Party (as there were in 2016) that have either switched to third party or to Trump voters. There are also Bernie supporters who have historically voted for Trump against the Democrat establishment candidate.
I doubt an awful lot of Bernie supporters will choose to vote for the Green Party candidate in November (whoever that ends up being), but any vote taken away from Biden helps Trump. I agree with the guy who said: “Remember every green vote is as good as voting republican.” Only difference is that I see it as a good thing while he sees it as a bad thing.
So Jill Stein has my thanks for doing her part in trying to draw voters away from Biden. Of course, she loathes Trump as much as other Leftists do, but at least her efforts inadvertently are a positive for this country if they are even relatively successful.
