Joe Biden accuses Trump of “trashing American values”

Published

on

Campaigning in rural Kentucky, in a Republican area, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden claimed that President Trump is “trashing American values.” It sounds like to me that Biden has run out of material as he hits the road for Democrat candidates and he’s probably gauging the public’s interest in his own fourth attempt at becoming president.

“He is just trashing American values the way he talks about people, the way he makes fun of people, the way he denigrates folks,” Mr. Biden said. “I got to tell you, I think there is a method to his madness because he wants you to get down in the mosh pit with him.”

That’s an odd way of putting it. Does Biden think that a person’s values are destroyed over the way another person speaks? Are we to believe that Biden thinks Americans are so fragile that the president’s tone will end an entire nation’s value system? His statement is just silly.

Joe Biden has been a politician his entire professional career. He entered Congress at the age of 29 and I find it disingenuous, to put it mildly, that he is offended by the tone of another person in elected office. Biden, you may remember, was caught on mic as telling President Obama that signing the Obamacare bill was a “big f***ing deal.” Spare me the delicate constitution now, Joe.

From the New York Times interview after the rally, Biden went on to admit that Trump appeals to working-class white voters, a base that the newly far-left Democrat Party struggles to win back.

In an interview after the rally, Mr. Biden did not hold back on his criticism of the president, saying that his attack on everything from federal courts to Republicans in Congress is about “amassing power.” Mr. Trump’s approach has been particularly effective among the white working class in rural America, Mr. Biden acknowledged, but Democrats need to re-engage and try to win back that vote.

“We can’t possibly in my view win the presidency unless we can begin to reclaim those white working-class voters that used to vote for us,” he said.

By “attacks”, you understand, Biden means success. Nothing aggravates the opposition more than the successes of this president. The reason folks in Kentucky, for example, support Trump despite his manner of speaking is because of his ability to bring successful business strategies into political policy. The American economy is on fire and workers are optimistic for the first time in many years. The malaise of the Obama years is over.

Naturally, the crowd burst into a chant – “run, Joe, run” – which no doubt validated Biden’s trip. The reason the Democrats have lost so much of working-class white voter support is that the party has been too busy courting and building their party on identity politics. It is virtually impossible, for example, for Democrats to win without the 90+ percent block of black voters.

As to American values, here’s how I see it. American values include the desire to work and support a family. Employment is at record highs across the board. There is no one segment of society that hasn’t seen a rise in opportunity during the Trump administration. The reason so many regular Americans just simply stopped voting in elections is because they no longer felt included and listened to by standard politicians delivering standard campaign speeches. Regular Americans know when they are having smoke blown up their butts by politicians promising everything yet delivering nothing for them.

When President Trump came along, he captured the imagination of the voters lost in recent elections. They didn’t care about his tone or how he spoke because to them, he sounds like one of their own. His thought process is completely transparent. My youngest sister was excited to vote for the first time in many years because she thought he’d be entertaining in the White House. She’s an Indiana voter and I think her state’s GOP primary showed the genius of Trump. While the race was down to two candidates, Cruz and Trump, (Kasich was hanging on but no one expected him to go anywhere) Cruz went the typical route of vying for the endorsement of Mike Pence. Pence was governor of the Hoosier state. Trump, however, knew what the people wanted. He went after the endorsement of former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight, a legend to this day. Not normally a political person, Knight stumped for Trump and the people turned out for it. The endorsement of Knight was a very basic, simple decision by Team Trump but it was what finally tanked Cruz’s run.

American values include a sense of fairness and justice. Americans value basic constitutional rights. The right of due process was under attack during the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Trump fought back. This stiffened the spines of the Republicans who were then successful in getting Kavanaugh through the process. The judicial branch was the biggest reason I voted for Trump, most importantly the Supreme Court picks, and I certainly will do so again in 2020 if he continues to run for re-election.

American values include religious freedom. Trump speaks up for those wrongfully persecuted for their religious beliefs, whether it is over baking a cake or a missionary held hostage in a foreign country. Pastor Andrew Brunson will meet with President Trump at the White House Saturday afternoon. He is the 17th American held hostage by foreign countries for whom Trump has negotiated a release. Trump is only in his second year of his first term.

Trump’s opponents like to say that his America First policies are racist and about white nationalism. America First, though, is about bringing jobs back to Americans that have been lost from bad trade deals and cheap foreign labor in overseas factories. Regular America understood that from the beginning. Trump brought hope to those suffering the most from the shuttering of manufacturing plants. He spoke about technical college education and apprenticeships that lead to good-paying middle-class jobs. He didn’t promise free everything like the socialist left but a message of personal opportunity.

The new left leaders are trying hard to push us into a socialist nation. The old left is stuck in the past campaigns of reciting worn-out tropes – the GOP is racist, homophobic, and Islamophobic. Regular America isn’t buying it anymore. The Kavanaugh hearings ignited the conservative voters to get out and vote in November. Trump is to be credited for leading the way.

As long as the left fails to understand the message of Trump’s election victory, they will continue to lose. I’m fine with that.

The robot dog that will murder you will also dance on your grave

To cleanse the palate, obviously I don’t know if there’ll be “graves” as such after the robot apocalypse. I assume it’ll depend on their olfactory capabilities. If they’re not equipped to detect scent, maybe the ‘bots will just leave us where we lie to decay in the sun, our streets transformed into rivers of putrefied viscera from the sheer mass of leaking carcasses.

It’s my great privilege to share thoughts like that with you at the end of a long day.

I’m curious about what possessed Boston Dynamics to put this clip together. Could be nothing more than boredom or a creative way to show off Spot’s motor skills. But I wonder if all the freaky-deaky videos of humanoid robots demonstrating ever more impressive feats of mobility has created a strange sort of PR problem for them. They don’t want every promo they do to seem menacing, however inadvertently. Soon they’ll have people breaking into their factory, trying to stop them before they build the first T-800. Time to do something whimsical instead.

This thing is set to go on sale next year, by the way. Not to everyday consumers; the price tag will likely ensure that it remains a corporate plaything. But you’ll be seeing them around sooner than you think. Plus, some ultra-rich tech bros are destined to buy them and show them off as look-what-I-got novelties. We all know who the first one will be.

Weird but true: In a few decades’ time, this thing shaking its ass in your face as it does a victory twerk might be the last thing you ever see.

WOW! Claire McCaskill Speaks Out After Project Veritas Reveals She’s a Complete Fraud — Lies and Blames Hawley (VIDEO)

Published

By

James O’Keefe strikes again!

On Monday evening, Project Veritas released an undercover video of endangered Missouri Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill admitting to being deceptive about her stance on firearms and immigration policies.

McCaskill is a red-state Democrat Senator so she has to appear pro 2nd Amendment to her constituents because Missourians love their guns.

Claire McCaskill’s staffers were also caught on video saying she puts on a moderate front to get the Republican votes.

The top staffer then continued saying McCaskill believes everything Obama does.

THIS WAS A DEVASTATING VIDEO! Claire McCaskill was COMPLETELY EXPOSED!

Senator McCaskill’s staffers admitted she is pro-DACA, pro-DREAMERS and against the border wall even though she runs ads to the contrary claiming she is strong on border security.
The Project Veritas Video has been viewed over 267,000 times so far!

On Tuesday morning Claire McCaskill responded to the stunning revelations.
McCaskill went on Ozarks First to try to dig herself out of this deep hole.


Claire lied some more, blamed Josh Hawley for the undercover video.

Senator McCaskill: I’ve been very up front about all my positions. I remember this person was trying to get me to say something different than what my positions are… It is startling that Josh Hawley would be part of fraudulently embedding something in my campaign.

Coincidence or corruption? In Andrew Cuomo’s government it’s hard to tell

Published

on

By

Given the parade of people in the orbit of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who have recently either been shipped off to jail or come under investigation, it’s amazing that none of the dirt ever sticks to Cuomo himself. How does he account for the various people who funneled money toward his campaign, and then were later discovered to have benefitted from state government “generosity” and wound up in handcuffs? It’s all just a coincidence.

Today we’re hearing news of yet another of these amazing coincidences. This story starts with a situation we first covered more than a year ago and it dealt with some donors who helped Cuomo out during his 2014 campaign. A medical corporation named Crystal Run Healthcare was run by a few people who had funneled more than $400K to Cuomo’s campaigns over the previous four years. When the “Buffalo Billion” was announced (a plan to invest a billion dollars of taxpayer money into projects creating jobs in the western, upstate region) Crytal Run was at the front of the line. They wound up receiving more than $25M dollars for two new medical centers.

But there were some fishy elements to the story. First of all, they had actually broken ground on both of those new projects six months before the grants were even announced or applications were being taken. It’s almost as if they knew they had the money coming from somewhere. Then we found out that the Crystal Run had coughed up a flurry of maximum donations only weeks before the checks to them were cut. In addition to that, there was a meeting held less than two weeks after the announcement of the grants where Crystal Run executives met with state officials, including a top aide from inside Cuomo’s office.

How did Cuomo explain it? It was all just a happy coincidence and the meeting didn’t matter because they didn’t even talk about the grants. The meeting was about Medicaid.

But now the local press has gotten hold of emails from Crystal Run showing that they did indeed discuss their two new developments and the grants, and that the state representatives at the meeting were “very receptive” to their requests. (NY Post)

Now, despite earlier denials from everyone involved, it turns out company execs got a private sitdown with top state officials in 2015, just 12 days after Albany started seeking applications for $1.2 billion in development grants. Crystal Run wound up with $25.4 million of that (the only for-profit company to qualify) for two projects.

Team Cuomo insists those projects never even got mentioned at the meeting, saying it was only about Medicaid. Yet the Albany Times Union reports that an e-mail sent two weeks later by Crystal Run’s chief legal officer stressed that company execs had “shared our vision for growth,” including the two “expansions,” with the health commissioner and a top aide who worked in Cuomo’s office.

Both officials, the e-mail noted, “were, obviously, supportive, as we are bringing real jobs to real people” — and had agreed that “further discussion was warranted” with the state economic-development agency “at the highest levels.”

How much more evidence do we need at this point? Cuomo’s spokespeople obviously lied about what went on at that meeting. They have records from the company who benefitted from it after making massive contributions. (Two of the people involved in organizing these meetings, donations, and windfalls have already been convicted or indicted on related charges.) And yet Andrew Cuomo continues to insist that all the grants were handled fairly and above board. These are all just amazing coincidences. And somehow, while his closest aides head off to the crowbar motel, Cuomo floats along and prosecutors can’t seem to lay a glove on him. On top of that, he’s on track to cruise to electoral victory for another four years in office.

I guess that’s just a happy coincidence too, eh?
