Biden’s approval rating falls lower than the lowest-rated governor as it dips to below 30% in 17 states

The Daily Wire reports on how Biden’s approval ratings have fallen in a number of states.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s approval rating is so low that he now has a lower approval rating than every governor in the U.S., and his approval rating has dipped to as low as 18% in one state.

According to a recent Morning Consult poll, five of the six least popular governors in the U.S. are Democrats, with Oregon Democrat Governor Kate Brown having the lowest approval rating of 43%.

A recent poll from Civiqs, an online polling and analytics company, found that Biden’s approval rating is 37%, with his lowest marks coming in from West Virginia.

One interesting thing is the Texas poll results

I find it interesting that Texas did not poll Biden under 30% (as did a number of other conservative states).

Although I don’t doubt the results of the poll, I wonder if the following might have affected the outcomes:

  • I have heard reports on the radio suggesting that Texas households make more use of caller id than households in other states. I know that I use caller id to avoid unknown and unwanted calls. If this is the case, Texans might avoid calls from pollsters. However, I cannot prove the state-wide use of caller id.
  • I suspect that, with Bidenflation, more people are taking multiple jobs. Therefore, people may not be available for polling.

The Biden vaccine rule for health workers gets blocked in 10 states

The Times Union reports some good news for healthcare workers across 10 states and bad news for Dementia Joe.

A federal judge on Monday blocked President Joe Biden’s administration from enforcing a coronavirus vaccine mandate on thousands of health care workers in 10 states that had brought the first legal challenge against the requirement.

The court order said that the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid had no clear authority from Congress to enact the vaccine mandate for providers participating in the two government health care programs for the elderly, disabled and poor.

The preliminary injunction by St. Louis-based U.S. District Judge Matthew Schelp applies to a coalition of suing states that includes Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. All those states have either a Republican attorney general or governor. Similar lawsuits also are pending in other states.

The federal rule requires COVID-19 vaccinations for more than 17 million workers nationwide in about 76,000 health care facilities and home health care providers that get funding from the government health programs. Workers are to receive their first dose by Dec. 6 and their second shot by Jan. 4.

The court order against the health care vaccine mandate comes after Biden’s administration suffered a similar setback for a broader policy. A federal court previously placed a hold on a separate rule requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to ensure their workers get vaccinated or else wear masks and get tested weekly for the coronavirus.

This doesn’t come as a total surprise

Even Dementia Joe expected these overreaches to be brought in — he just didn’t know how long the courts would allow him to get away with his lawlessness and how well the press could cover for him. Just as he knew his lawless eviction ban would be overturned (several times), he knew that the vaccine mandate always stood on shaky ground.

Federal judge blocks Biden vaccine mandate in three states

According to a 30 November 2021 article in the Daily Wire, U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove ruled against Biden’s vaccination mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.

A federal judge in Kentucky issued a preliminary injunction on Tuesday against Democrat President Joe Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in three states.

The Lexington Herald Leader reported:

U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove, who serves the Eastern District of Kentucky, issued the opinion and order Tuesday afternoon. It came in response to a challenge from Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who joined many other state attorneys general in challenging the mandate.

“This is not a case about whether vaccines are effective. They are,” Van Tatenhove wrote. “Nor is this a case about whether the government, at some level, and in some circumstances, can require citizens to obtain vaccines. It can.”

He said the case was about whether Biden could impose vaccines on the employees of government contractors.

“The question presented here is narrow,” he said. “Can the president use congressionally delegated authority to manage the federal procurement of goods and services to impose vaccines on the employees of federal contractors and subcontractors? In all likelihood, the answer to that question is no.”

“Once again, the Court is asked to wrestle with important constitutional values implicated in the midst of a pandemic that lingers,” he said. “These questions will not be finally resolved in the shadows. Instead, the consideration will continue with the benefit of full briefing and appellate review. But right now, the enforcement of the contract provisions in this case must be paused.”

The order blocks the Biden administration from enforcing the vaccine mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in all covered contracts in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.

Proofs that Joe Biden and the Democrats don’t care

Former FDA Head Gottlieb calls Biden’s omicron travel ban “counterproductive”

The Daily Wire quotes the FDA director of President Trump in his assessment of Joe Biden’s “Black Ban” against the omicron variant.

BidenBlackBanFormer Food and Drug Administration administrator Dr. Scott Gottlieb panned the Biden administration’s decision to impose a travel ban on eight countries in southern Africa amid concerns over a new variant of the COVID-19 virus, calling the move “counterproductive.”

“Of note: The 4 cases of new variant identified in Botswana were incidentally detected in well people tested before air travel, and South African Medical Association chief said – so far – symptoms seen are ‘mostly mild symptoms, and we haven’t seen a spike in hospital admissions,’” Gottlieb wrote in a Twitter thread about the new variant Friday.

His tweet was accompanied by screenshots of two news reports explaining that the novel variant allegedly originated in Botswana. The reports noted that there were currently only six cases in the country, and the new variant reportedly came from a person who was immunocompromised due to an HIV infection. The reports also said that there had been a spike in COVID cases, but not in hospitalizations.

“Good world is more organized; taking new variant seriously, with coordinated effort to investigate,” he continued. “It’s counterproductive in short and long run, however, to impose harsh travel restrictions on affected countries; hurting current containment efforts, discouraging future sharing.”

“There’s too much we don’t know to impose economically, socially ruinous policies on SA and other nations. Ready, fire, aim is not prudent public health policy. Vaccine, testing requirements for incoming travelers could be prudent. Outright travel bans can hurt more than help.”

The Biden administration imposed a travel ban on eight countries in southern Africa amid concerns of the new variant, dubbed “Omicron.” The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra reported:

The travel restrictions will go into effect on Monday, but they will not apply to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. The eight nations are South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi.

Biden said that the move came after he was briefed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical advisor to the president.

Fauci had suggested earlier in the day during an interview with CNN that more information was needed before making a decision on whether to ban travel because “you don’t want to say you’re going to do it until you have some scientific reason to do it.”

“That’s the reason why we’re rushing now to get that scientific data to try and make an informed decision about something like that,” Fauci added.

Early testing for the new variant showed that 90% of the cases that were reported on Wednesday came from the South African province that includes Johannesburg.

BioNTech, the company that partnered with American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer to manufacture the first COVID vaccine granted the Emergency Use Authorization, said in a statement that they are currently investigating whether the new variant “could be an escape variant that may require an adjustment of our vaccine if the variant spreads globally.”

While Joe Biden reviews his options, real America needs to work

While Dementia Joe considers whether he thinks he needs to shut us down again over a virus that, in its worse state, killed only a little over 1.3% of those under 75 who contracted it — those of us in the working world find ourselves pressured by his inflation. We either find ourselves dipping further into our pockets than planned or feel pushed into taking additional jobs to cover the shortfall.

Still, since the main stream press will not bring this up, I will. This would normally be called racist if it were any non-Democrat politician who banned travel from these countries.

The reason that smash-and-grab crime is on the rise in Democrat areas is that Democrat leaders sanction it

Fox News notes the words of former officer Pete Eliadis as he assesses the situation.

A rash of brazen organized nighttime shoplifting incidents in several U.S. cities during which thieves ransack stores and make off with merchandise is the culmination of a failure to prosecute criminals and the normalization of such behavior, according to experts. 

The most recent incident occurred Monday when a mob of at least 20 people smashed windows with a sledgehammer at a Nordstrom department store at The Grove, a popular shopping and entertainment complex in Los Angeles, and stole thousands of dollars in merchandise, police said. At least three suspects have been arrested. 

The thefts followed a series of smash-and-grab incidents in the San Francisco area over the weekend, including one where a Nordstrom in Walnut Creek was hit by at least 90 people, some wearing ski masks and armed with crowbars. Three people have been charged in that theft, during which two employees were assaulted and one was pepper-sprayed, authorities said.

A Louis Vitton in San Francisco‘s Union Square was nearly emptied Friday night as thieves were seen fleeing the high-end retailer with armfuls of expensive merchandise. Nine suspects have been charged in that smash-and-grab. Other stores targeted in the city on the same night included Bloomingdale’s, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, a Walgreens and cannabis dispensaries, authorities said. All told, at least 12 stores in the city were targeted over the weekend alone. 

Across the bay in Oakland, the Wellspring Pharmacy was looted Saturday when dozens of looters wearing black hoodies and masks ransacked shelves and fled with prescription drugs. 

In suburban Chicago, 14 suspects stole $100,000 of merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store last week as they grabbed everything they could carry. On Nov. 12, an Ulta Beauty store in nearby Oak Brook, Illinois, was ransacked to the tune of $15,000. 

Security experts cited a variety of reasons for the brazen nature of the crimes.

“Not only is it being tolerated because we’re seeing it more, but we’re seeing there’s no prosecution involved in this,” Pete Eliadis, a former law enforcement official and CEO of security company Intelligence Consulting Partners, told Fox News. “Law enforcement is not going to engage with that type of element because it’s an accepted crime.”

News to those Democrat-supporting thugs

Gun sales in large American cities has skyrocketed while support for gun control has dropped (especially among women). Therefore, if you break into a woman’s house, you are now more likely to be met with a trained gun owner who has practiced unloading through her gun’s muzzle.

Just a thought for the thugs out there.

Stephen Moore to Newsmax: Biden has “declared war on American energy”

Newsmax reports that Stephen Moore, the economic advisor under President Trump, has assessed that Biden has “declared war on American energy.”

President Joe Biden’s call to release 50 million barrels of crude oil from the nation’s strategic reserves may be, on balance, a good idea, but it doesn’t solve anything or change the fact that he’s “declared war on American energy,” Stephen Moore, a former senior economic adviser under President Donald Trump, said on Newsmax Wednesday. 

“He does not want to produce oil and gas and coal in this country,” Moore said on Newsmax’s “American Agenda.”

“That’s where we get 80% of our energy and so he is wrong when he says that his policies have not contributed to higher gas prices.”

Moore, who called Biden’s plan a “band-aid,” further pointed out that the United States’ oil production is down 2 million barrels a day from where it should be and from where it was at its peak when Trump was in office. 

“We killed the Keystone XL pipeline,” said Moore. “There are two major pipelines in the Midwest that are necessary to get home heating fuel into people’s homes. I’m really worried about this winter … I’m from Chicago. It gets to 10 degrees below zero at night. You know you need your home heating, and there are real questions about whether we’ll have a reliable supply for people to keep warm in the winter.”

Meanwhile, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm was not able this week to answer a reporter’s questions concerning how many barrels of oil the United States consumes daily, and Moore said that is a concern. 

“[She] knows about as much on energy as Pete Buttigieg knows about transportation,” said Moore. “Biden has a lot of incompetent people in positions of major influence on our economy, and I just mentioned two of them. Yes, she should know that number.”

The United States, he added, is now producing 11 million barrels of oil a day, when it should be at about 13 million barrels. 

“At the price of $80 a barrel, that’s about $160 million we’re losing every day in terms of U.S. economic output,” said Moore. “That’s $50 billion a year we’re losing, so these are policies that are hurting American families.”

But, he added that there are “climate change fanatics” in the administration who “want high oil and gas prices.”

What do we expect when Biden empties the nation of options for the oil/gas industry, but fills his regime with climate change “experts?”

What do you expect when Joe shut down the Keystone on his first day (and, yes, futures do play a role in oil prices)? What do you expect when Joe shuts off drilling in federal lands and waters? What do you expect when Joe won’t let drillers use rights-of-way across federal lands or waters? What do you think happens when Joe stops dredging rivers used as rights-of-way for large ships? What do you expect when Joe works to shut down drilling near a national park revered by a native tribe?

Representative Jim Jordan: Biden’s policies seem to be intentionally making things worse.

The Daily Caller outlines a recent Jim Jordan speech that torches Biden’s policies.

Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan ripped into President Joe Biden’s economic policies Friday morning, claiming they seem to be “intentionally making things worse.”

Jordan was asked by “Fox & Friends” substitute co-host Lawrence Jones whether he agreed with Biden’s recent comments during Thursday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in which he declared that “America is Back.”

“We are at a 31 year high in inflation. They can say what they want but the American people understand it for what it is. What was it like, four weeks ago, Joe Biden said now if we pass this ‘Build Back Better’ plan, another two trillion in spending, some how that’s gonna help inflation. There is not a rational sane person on the planet who believes that,” Jordan responded.

“So yeah, their policies have been bad across the board, and it seems to me it’s intentional because they just keep making things worse whether its inflation, you name it, that’s the situation. I think the American people fully understand it,” Jordan continued.

While unemployment claims have reached a record-lowinflation has skyrocketed to a 31-year high, and gas prices have reached their highest levels in a decade.

Psaki provides word salad in defense of Joe not visiting the families of the dead and injured in Wisconsin

When I hear her babbling, I think of a number of liberal attacks against conservatives

This rambling response to Peter Doocy’s question evokes a bit of anti-nostalgia in me where I ask:

  • “Our hearts go out,” you say. Every time that any Christian or conservative talks of “thoughts and prayers,” you Democrats do nothing but mock. Therefore, don’t augment your inaction by the further inaction of just saying “our hearts go out.”
  • You say “we are all watching.” However, what have you done to prove that? What substantive steps have you taken against the thug who killed 6? I remember that your Representative Nadler suggested bringing Kyle Rittenhouse up on federal charges after a jury found that he defended himself. Do any Democrat leaders have suggestions for this situation?
  • Does Joe Biden (#NotMyPresident) have an anti-White or anti-Wisconsin sentiment? When President Bush delayed visiting Louisiana by a day, he was roundly criticized by celebrities and the press. It has been over a week since the people of Waukesha were run down by someone intent on killing as many as possible. It seems like Biden could skip a nap and help the people.
  • You say “this time of year.” Are you seriously using a Christian holiday as an excuse for not giving comfort to fellow countrymen and women, you baby-killing group of pretenders?
  • You point out that the entourage of multiple carbon-belching SUV’s that Biden drags to his every visit would put a strain on the area. Does that mean that you will never visit an area that doesn’t meet certain qualities? Does that mean that you only travel of Buttigieg’s racist roads?

Biden politicized COVID. Now he cannot live up to his own standard

Biden’s COVID Death Milestone

The Wall Street Journal helped Joe Biden celebrate another dark milestone in a 25 November 2021 article: between inauguration and the last full week of November 2021 — Biden surpassed the COVID deaths in 2020 with over 350,000.

BidenYellsPresident Biden may not recall what he said during a 2020 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should: “Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America.” At the time the U.S. had recorded 220,000 Covid deaths.

Covid deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020 with 350,000 since Inauguration Day. It would seem that Mr. Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating Covid despite the benefit of vaccines, better therapies, and more clinical experience. The left politicized Covid by holding Mr. Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat.

Even Biden’s DOJ admits we have a ‘modern-day slavery’ scheme run to Georgia farms

Breitbart pointed out in a 26 November 2021 article how illegal aliens are enslaved to work on farms at below-subsistence wages in Biden’s America.

ModernDaySlaveryThe Department of Justice (DOJ) released a 54-count indictment that charges 24 individuals, many illegal aliens, with operating a “modern-day slavery” scheme that utilized the H-2A visa program to traffic foreign workers into United States farm jobs — raping, kidnapping, and threatening them in the process.

The indictment accuses the Patricio transnational criminal organization (TCO) — named after its matriarch, 70-year-old Maria Leticia Patricio — of operating a massive forced labor trafficking scheme since 2015 that used the H-2A visa program to traffic foreign workers from Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras into farms jobs in Georgia.

Prosecutors called the scheme “modern-day slavery,” alleging that 24 members of the Patricio TCO engaged in mail fraud, international forced labor trafficking, and money laundering, among other crimes, across Georgia, Florida, and Texas.

According to the indictment, the Patricio TCO raked in more than $200 million from the forced labor trafficking scheme. As part of the scheme, the group sought to traffic more than 71,000 foreign workers to the U.S. using the H-2A visa program.

The H-2A visa program allows farms to bring an unlimited number of foreign workers to the U.S. every year to take American agricultural jobs. As Breitbart News has chronicled for years, the program is often used to replace Americans and preserve the low cost of farm labor.

The Patricio TCO, the indictment alleges, would secure H-2A visas for foreign workers, demand they pay them unlawful fees by keeping their immigration paperwork from them, require them to work in harsh conditions for little-to-no pay, make them reside in brutal living conditions, and would threaten them with deportation if they disobeyed orders.

In some cases, the indictment states, the trafficked foreign workers were required to dig onions in Georgia farms with their bare hands, were paid only 20 cents for each bucket harvested, all while being threatened with violence.

Don’t blame the people at the bottom. Blame the guy at the top

Blame the “Big Guy” running the big game at the top. Don’t blame the small-time criminal at the farm in Georgia.

If Biden’s apparent COVID czar cannot tell whether this newest variant has crossed into the US, what good will a shutdown do?

Dr. Fauci says he “would not be surprised” if the omicron variant is in the United States

Newsmax quotes the apparent COVID czar of the Biden regime when it comes to the variant discovered in South Africa and first reported on the day after Thanksgiving.

It would be no surprise if the highly transmissible omicron variant of coronavirus is already in the United States, even though health experts haven’t detected it yet, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Saturday morning. 

“I would not be surprised if it is,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical adviser for the White House, told NBC’s “Today.”  “We have not detected it yet, but when you have a virus that is showing this degree of transmissibility and you’re having travel-related cases they’ve noted in other places already when you have a virus like this, it almost invariably is going to go all over.”

The Centers for Disease Control, in a statement issued Friday, said the agency is following the details of the new variant, which was first reported to the World Health Organization by South Africa, and while “no cases of this variant have been identified in the United States,” but still “we expect omicron to be identified quickly if it emerges.”

Meanwhile, the United States is restricting entry to travelers from eight countries in southern Africa over concerns about the variant, first found in South Africa, President Joe Biden said Friday.

The restrictions will be effective Monday and apply to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique,  and Malawi. 

The travel restrictions were ordered to “give us time to assess it better,” said Fauci.

(Read more on the regime’s uncertainty at Newsmax)

So if Biden’s man on COVID can’t tell us if we have Omicron in America, maybe this is the setup for another flip

Fauci has flipped on every topic so far. Why not this one, too?

Never mind that this tweet by liberal CNBC ignores some of the flips Fauci did during the Trump administration (e.g., “don’t mask,” “wear a mask,” etc.). Nonetheless, the point is that everyone sees that Fauci flips.

Supreme Court (already defied twice by Biden and under threat of packing) won’t accept Project Veritas challenge to Massachusetts law banning secret recordings

The Epoch Times reported in a 23 November 2021 article on how the Supreme Court has refused the Project Veritas challenge to a Massachusetts law banning secret recordings. So much for the First Amendment and a free press investigating things like a corrupt FBI.

James-OKeefeThe Supreme Court has refused to accept an appeal from Project Veritas, the investigative journalism organization founded by James O’Keefe, after an appeals court rejected the group’s First Amendment-based challenge to a Massachusetts law forbidding secret recordings.

If the justices had granted the petition, it would have been the first time the nation’s highest court had addressed the First Amendment implications of secret audio recordings, according to SCOTUSblog.

Benjamin Barr, counsel of record for Project Veritas, was disheartened by the ruling.

“We are disappointed the Supreme Court decided not to hear this matter,” Barr said in an emailed statement to The Epoch Times.

“Project Veritas believes that citizens have a right to understand what their government does when the public isn’t watching. This Massachusetts law criminalizes a critical investigative tool, and in the process, injures the First Amendment rights of all Americans.”

Before founding Project Veritas, which exposes governmental and corporate wrongdoing, O’Keefe rocketed to fame in 2009 when, working with Hannah Giles, he shot undercover videos of employees of the radical left-wing Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) who were assisting the two journalists with tax evasion and other paperwork in order to create a fictitious child prostitution business.

(Read more about how O’Keefe ruined Acorn at The Epoch Times)

Don’t forget that Biden has defied the SCOTUS twice in 11 months

Don’t forget that Biden was told that his eviction moratorium was unconstitutional. Still, he directed his CDC to issue a second eviction moratorium (effectively taking the property rights of landlords while not giving similar relief to people under mortgages, thereby creating two classes of people who were not equal under the law).

Also remember that Biden has ignored the court’s mandate to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy. While Biden may have given this lip service, that is all he has done.

Finally, as Biden and the Democrats see the chances of future legislative victories slipping away, they might become more likely to implement more rulings by fiat — including packing the Supreme Court.

FBI raids homes of Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters and Lauren Boebert’s former campaign manager

Grand Junction, Colorado NBC affiliate KKCO reported in a 17 November 2021 article that Biden’s FBI raided the homes of two Colorado Republicans associated with either recount efforts or right-wing resistance to the Biden regime.

FBI SealEarly Tuesday morning the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed search warrants at four locations in western Colorado.

According to Mesa County District Attorney Dan Rubinstein, the state attorney general’s office and local authorities conducted the searches Tuesday in Mesa and Garfield Counties. The court-ordered search was part of an investigation of alleged election security breaches conducted by Mesa County officials.

Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters did confirm her home was searched. A statement was released from her legal defense fund early Wednesday morning stating, “Today large teams of heavily armed federal agents, using a battering ram to break down doors, raided the homes of Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters and several of her friends and colleagues, mostly elderly women in their mid 60s. This is a level of weaponization of the Justice Department we haven’t seen since the McCarthy era. Thank God Tina wasn’t protesting critical race theory at a Virginia school board meeting or they might have brought two battering rams.”

Tuesday night Peters did appear on Lindell TV, a channel ran by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to speak about the raid. According to Colorado Politics, Peters also spoke on Lindell’s channel saying, “The FBI raided my home at 6 a.m. this morning, accusing me of committing a crime. And they raided the homes of my friends, mostly older women. I was terrified.” She continued by saying authorities searched her house for “about three hours” and “took all of my electronics,” including her phone. She went on to say, “You know, I refuse to give up. I’m more scared than ever because of the tactics they are doing for an innocent person who was just doing her job.”

According to 9News, Lindell said Garfield County resident Sherronna Bishop, Lauren Boebert’s former campaign manager, also had her home searched on Tuesday. We have reached out for comment but have not heard back at this time.

Peters and her associates are being investigated for an alleged security breach involving elections equipment in Mesa County earlier this year. Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold’s office is conducting an internal investigation of Peters, as well as the FBI, 21st Judicial District Attorney’s office, and the Colorado Attorney General’s office who are conducting a criminal investigation of Peters.

What business does the FBI have raiding the homes of those involved in election audits?

Is this payback for looking into the shady side of Dementia Joe’s “election?”

The FBI raid of Project Veritas turns into a massive scandal after privileged communications are leaked

Red State commented in a 12 November 2021 article on the scope of the problem created by Biden’s FBI raid on Project Veritas.

As RedState reported, Project Veritas has found itself in the crosshairs of the FBI recently. That began with a raid on the homes of several of its journalists under the guise of looking for Ashley Biden’s diary. Apparently, a stolen diary is now in the purview of federal authorities. Will they be investigating bike thefts next?

But what was so disturbing, besides the raids happening in the first place, was how quickly The New York Times knew about them. While O’Keefe was asked by the FBI to keep quiet, the Times knew within hours, pointing to a leaker within the bureau.

But while the Department of Justice requested us to not disclose the existence of the subpoena, something very unusual happened. Within an hour of one of our reporters’ homes being secretly raided by the FBI, The New York Times, who we are currently suing for defamation, contacted the Project Veritas reporter for comment. We do not know how The New York Times was aware of the execution of a search warrant at our reporter’s home, or the subject matter of the search warrant, as a Grand Jury investigation is secret.

Days later, O’Keefe would have his home raided as well, and sure enough, the Times once again knew it about it before anyone else. Are you noticing a pattern? Because it’s about to become as obvious as a neon sign.

Two days ago, a court ordered the FBI to stop extracting data from O’Keefe’s phones, which had apparently been seized. Again, all of this is being done under the allegation that…a diary was stolen. But then last night, things boiled over into outright scandal. The Times suddenly started publishing privileged communications between Project Veritas and its legal team. Those messages apparently came from one of O’Keefe’s phones.


Yes, you read that right. Project Veritas had recently sued The New York Times over an unrelated matter, and now the Times has Project Veritas’ privileged communications that reveal their legal strategies. Given the circumstances, there could only be one logical source for that information — the FBI.

Why is the New York Times in such a buddy-buddy relationship with Biden’s FBI?

Has the New York Times become so strong in its role as Biden’s Goebbels that it can now freely interact with Biden’s Gestapo? Or is that observation too commonplace to make now — too cliche?

Senator Chuck Grassley demands answers of the FBI and DOJ leadership regarding the treatment of Project Veritas. Does the press notice?

Almost 10 days and no comment from the main stream media on a frontal attack on investigative journalism for the sake of — a “diary?”

What is the difference between the Biden South Africa travel ban and Trump’s travel ban?

Biden’s South Africa travel ban compared to Trump COVID restrictions he denounced

The Washington Examiner compares the Biden travel ban to the Trump travel ban (which Biden denounced).

BidenYellsPresident Joe Biden’s decision to impose additional air travel restrictions on South Africa and seven other countries in response to a new COVID-19 strain is being contrasted with his response to similar policies under former President Donald Trump.

Biden issued a proclamation Friday night saying Washington would “suspend and restrict the entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of noncitizens” from the eight African nations effective Monday, though he mentioned the decision in a previous statement hours earlier in the day after Thanksgiving.

“As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries,” Biden said in the statement sent by the White House. “These new restrictions will take effect on November 29. As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.”

Biden was among the Democratic leaders who responded with criticism to Trump’s restrictions on travel from China, where the virus originated.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted early last year while still a candidate. “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

Biden also said a “wall” and bans on travel would not stop the virus.

Many on social media were quick to note Biden’s original tweets when this latest move was announced.

Biden later argued he was referring to Trump’s overall history of inflammatory comments about foreign countries and their nationals, not the China travel ban itself. Similarly, other Democrats contended that Trump’s order curbing travel from seven Muslim-majority countries dealing with terrorism could not be separated from his rhetoric about a broader ban on Muslim immigration during the 2016 campaign.

Only on Nov. 8 did the Biden administration loosen restrictions on European travelers to allow those with proof of vaccination and a negative test entry into the U.S. The White House has also caught criticism from some liberals for continuing to turn away migrants at the border under the Trump-era COVID-19 rule Title 42.

Biden’s newest rule will restrict travel from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi to buy time to study ways to slow the spread of the new COVID-19 variant, citing scientific guidance.

There is little difference (other than Biden’s marked talent for demonstrating incompetence) between the two — other than a Democrat-favoring press

As we know from a 22 March 2021 op-ed from The Hill, the press treats Biden very differently from the way they prosecuted Trump.

Sometimes, all it takes is a seemingly insignificant incident to show how biased journalists can be. Take Joe Biden’s stumble while walking up the steps to Air Force One on Friday.

President Biden was on his way to Atlanta when he tripped three times ascending the stairs of Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. The White House blamed it on “wind” and said he “left the plane with ease” when he arrived in Atlanta. 

The Daily Mail reports that, “As of Friday afternoon, the homepages of MSNBC, CBS News, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and New York Times had no mention of Biden’s stumbling incident earlier in the day at Joint Base Andrews.” 

According to various organizations that monitor the media, CNN devoted 15 seconds to the incident and MSNBC about a minute. NBC’s Chuck Todd on MSNBC said, “We’ve all run up stairs and had that moment ourselves. And if you haven’t, you aren’t a human being.”

Fair enough. The fall appeared to be no big deal and the coverage reflected the insignificance of what happened.

But compare how the media covered Biden’s fall with how they covered Donald Trump’s slow walk down a ramp after he delivered a graduation address at West Point in June of 2020: According to the Media Research Center, CNN devoted 22 minutes and 13 seconds to Trump’s walk down the ramp, and MSNBC devoted 28 minutes and 42 seconds to the story. 

Why so much time? Because it provided liberal news outlets that were no fans of Trump with the opportunity to question his physical and even mental fitness for office.

When Biden, who is 78, fell and it was treated as simply a slip, something we’ve all done at one time or another. But with Trump, who is 74, it was treated as a sign of potential serious health questions.

The New York Times ran “Trump’s Halting Walk Down Ramp Raises New Health Questions” as its headline in 2020. Compare that to its headline when Biden fell last week: “Biden is ‘doing 100 percent fine’ after tripping while boarding Air Force One.”

The Washington Post’s headline in 2020 was: “Trump tries to explain his slow and unsteady walk down a ramp at West Point.” But when Biden fell three times in a matter of seconds, the Post headline simply said: “Biden stumbles climbing stairs on Air Force One.” 

In 2020, MSNBC anchor Joy-Ann Reid tweeted: “Serious question: What is going on with [Trump]? His supporters have tried so hard to get the media to question Joe Biden’s mental and physical fitness but they so often engage in projection it seems worth inquiring.”

CNN couldn’t speculate enough about the Trump story in 2020:

  • Anchor Alisyn Camerota asked medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta, “Do you see something, possibly neurological, that could be throwing off his balance?” Gupta responded that a lot of neurologists were talking about the situation.
  • Anchor John King said Trump looked “a little shaky” on the ramp.  
  • Political correspondent Abby Phillip wondered if Trump was being “transparent” about his health based on the “latest incidents.”
  • Political commentator Chris Cillizza said it was an important story because Trump was 74 at the time. “We know so little about Donald Trump’s past medical history,” Cillizza said. As he talked, the on-screen graphic read: “Trump’s unsteady walk, arm lift raise health questions.”

Then-presidential candidate Biden even got into the act, saying: “Look at how he steps and look at how I step. Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps. Come on.” 

At the time, then-President Trump responded to speculation that he may have serious medical problems by noting that the ramp was slippery. But Maggie Haberman of the New York Times didn’t buy it. “There was no evidence that the ramp was slippery, and the skies were clear during the ceremony,” she wrote.

And, in its news story, the Times said: “Mr. Trump — who turned 74 on Sunday, the oldest a U.S. president has been in his first term — was recorded hesitantly descending the ramp one step at a time after he delivered an address to graduating cadets at the New York-based academy on Saturday.” 

Compare that to how the Times began its March 19 story on President Biden’s stumble: “President Biden was ‘doing fine’ after falling off balance while boarding Air Force One before his Friday trip to Atlanta, according to a press secretary traveling with him.” That seemed to be enough for the Times; there was nothing in its March 19 story that raised questions about Joe Biden’s physical or mental ability because of his stumble.

The really crazy thing about this topic of inequity in coverage by the Democrat-favoring press is this March op-ed is the last main-stream acknowledgement of their obvious problem. Don’t tell me that it has not gotten worse since then.

But then there comes broadcasts like the ones captured in the following tweets:

If Trump’s ban most derided act was a Muslim ban and the first COVID travel ban was “hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering” — then this act of Biden’s ban is a Black ban

If the ban that stopped travel from countries on the terrorist watch list can be called a “Muslim ban” by the Democrat-favoring press, then this ban must be called a Black ban.  Truth of the matter is that Biden’s ban will do little to stop the spread of a disease that has hardly-noticeable symptoms and has already cropped up in Canada, Britain, and the Netherlands.

Tapering over the problem from 36,000 feet

The Washington Examiner explains some of the idiocy floating through Washington where the Federal Reserve has been directed to ease off of the feed of addictive money fed to Wall Street (all while us common folk suffer through an over-supply of money in the system — otherwise known as inflation).

It should come as no surprise that the Dow Jones Industrial Average continues its meteoric rise past 36,000 — even with the Federal Reserve’s long-anticipated “tapering” (buying fewer bonds) starting later this month . After all, a balloon goes up when it gets inflated. But how much of this apparent growth is real, and how much is a meaningless illusion?

The Commerce Department’s report on third-quarter GDP sheds light on the subject. Economic growth was disappointing, increasing at a torpid 2.0% annualized rate, far below expectations. But the real devil is in the details.

August to September. More than a third of inventory growth and almost half of sales growth for wholesalers in September was just inflation.

Likewise, the Census Bureau’s latest retail trade report showed more than half of the increase in retail sales and inventory growth in October was just inflation. Both retailers and wholesalers are making nominal profits by having goods sit in a warehouse for a month.

This is why corporate earnings reports should be thoroughly beating expectations right now. The market almost ought to expect blowout earnings because inflation — by almost any measure — is near its 30-year high, and earnings are priced nominally. Inflation increases the size of the bottom line simply because the dollar is losing purchasing power. Higher earnings numbers are not actually worth more because the dollar that measures them has shrunk in value.

These inflationary pressures are crushing consumers. While prices have been steadily increasing, real disposable personal income decreased 5.6% in the third quarter, and personal savings fell $300 billion. People are dipping into savings to pay their bills, which are getting more expensive every month because of inflation.

Another major point of concern is gross private domestic investment, or the amount invested in business. At first glance, it appeared to have grown by a healthy 11.7%, a sign of future economic growth. But that number, too, is an illusion. Of the $96.5 billion increase in real GDP, 97% was businesses stocking up on goods for resale, not pouring money into fixed investment such as capital goods. It seems businesses have been anticipating price increases and supply chain disruptions and stockpiled accordingly — not truly investing in growing their businesses.

So, after an administration of good economic growth and low costs, we get smoke blown

From the beginning, all of the “good news” from the Biden regime has likely been smoke that they have been desperately trying to blow up one orifice or another. They need to join the real world.

Biden shows his stripes as an ecoterrorist and destroyer of democracy

The history of the Joe Biden oil shortage

First, remember that a large part of the oil market comes from the futures market. Therefore, prices have risen from the beginning of the Biden regime since he:

Never mind that the contents of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve had been purchased during the Trump administration (and were thus paid for with tax dollars). Dementia Joe has done nothing but spend more money left over from the Trump administration and squander it.

Now, Joe tries to fix things with a non-action

Now, Zero Hedge outlines in its initial paragraph the non-starting nature of Dementia Joe’s most current idiotic move in the energy sector.

As noted earlier, Biden’s announcement of an exchange-based release from the SPR has been a dud, with Brent sliding from $85 to $78 on the rumor of the imminent “not-so-strategic” release – which it appears was meant to be an emergency backstop for true emergencies as well as to sliding Democrat poll numbers – and then promptly recovered more than half the drop, spiking from $78 to $82 today following news of the coordinated, global SPR release of some 32mm bbl, an amount that we said earlier was a “rounding error” and far too small to make a real difference, and the market seems to agree.

wti post SPR release

And then there is the matter of payback.

But while the market’s verdict is clear, and Joe Biden will certainly not be happy with the outcome, here is what Wall Street analysts think in their kneejerk reactions to the announcement, courtesy of Bloomberg:

RBC Capital Markets analysts including Helima Croft

  • The U.S. administration “believe they have the ability to do another release of a similar magnitude” if prices rise further
  • Any such release would be through an exchange mechanism, meaning the barrels will have to be replaced
  • The U.S. is keenly focused on reducing gasoline and diesel prices ahead of the holidays but also sees SPR releases as part of a plan to deal with inflationary pressure
  • Next week’s OPEC+ meeting will be crucial in determining the efficacy of Tuesday’s announcement
  • It’s most likely that OPEC+ will stick with its existing plan to proceed with output increases next week, but Saudi Arabia may push to scale back the plan

UBS strategist Giovanni Staunovo

  • Outlook for crude prices remains positive, as oil demand still expected to increase and OPEC+ remains in control of most of the oil market
  • SPR releases are not a fix for imbalances caused by a lack of investment and still-rising demand
  • Traders will shift their attention to the OPEC+ meeting on Dec. 2
  • OPEC+ may be encouraged to stay on hold and not increase production in Jan. due to lockdowns in Europe

Let’s go, Brandon

It’s time for Brandon’s nap.

When all you can muster is a non-action that brings the cost of oil to a “rounding error” cost and the rest of the world prospers on the goofiness of the Biden regime, it is time for a long, long nap for Joe and his regime. Just go away.

 

Two cases that underscore facts inconvenient to the Socialists

Featured

On the same day as the Rittenhouse verdict, another case validated the citizens’ right of self defense

The Western Journal reported on a second case that affirms America’s Second Amendment.

When application of the law is based upon reason instead of emotion, truth prevails.

AndrewCoffeeAndrew Coffee IV, a black man, was acquitted of murder by way of self-defense, as reported by WPBF-TV.  On the same day, Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared of murder charges by reason of self-defense.

I mention that Coffee was black only because many have been asking what might have happened in the Rittenhouse trial if the defendant was black. The question is usually asked by those who maintain that the U.S. justice system is systematically racist and therefore unjust.

“If Black Kyle Rittenhouse had shown up at an anti-vax rally with a weapon and the crowd chased him down and he shot two people dead, what would have happened? One, he probably would have been shot dead by police or bystanders, and two, he likely would have been portrayed as a thug and convicted in front of an all-white jury,” journalist David Greenwald claimed.

In another reaction, Democratic Rep. Cori Bush goes so far as to claim the judge, jury and defendant are white supremacists.

Bush wasn’t alone in her irrational response to the verdict. A slew of other leftists lashed out at at the verdict as well, as reported by Townhall.

Some of the claims were blatantly false. New York City Mayor Bill di Blasio claimed Rittenhouse had transported a gun across state lines.

The Coffee case just isn’t getting the same fanfare. Leftists are pretty quiet on that front.

Coffee was found not guilty of the murder of his girlfriend Alteria Woods and the attempted murder of Florida Indian River County sheriff deputies during an early morning drug raid in 2017.

Coffee’s defense claimed the defendant was asleep and thought a flash-bang set off by deputies was gunfire. Coffee claimed he fired his gun because he believed he was under attack.

“I was trying to protect me and Alteria,” Coffee said, according to WPBF.  “I thought I was doing that, but I feel I didn’t protect her. I can’t sleep with that … They killed her.”

The prosecution maintained that the deputies announced they were there and Coffee shot at them before they returned fire.

The jury, after deliberating over the evidence, including Coffee’s testimony, found the defendant not guilty on the murder charges. They did find him guilty of a felon in possession of a firearm for which Coffee faces up to 30 years in prison.

The one advantage that Rittenhouse may have had over Coffee may have been alternative journalist coverage of the Kenosha riots

Although I admit that journalists cannot cover every angle of every drug raid, I also must admit that the additional video available to show that Rittenhouse was defending himself from aggressors (one child rapist, one attacker who hit him with a skateboard, and one felon armed with a handgun pointed at Kyle’s head) and that did much to prove his case. Were it not for new-generation journalists like Andy Gno, Brendan Gutenschwager (@BGOnTheScene), and others, the case of Kyle Rittenhouse would have been hard to defend against the lies of the defense.

Still, with the eyewitness testimony and the corroborating video evidence, Rittenhouse went against the socialist narrative and proved that he was merely defending himself. Likewise, Coffee (although he earned a 30-year sentence for being a felon in possession of a gun) likewise proved that he did not deserve to be charged with multiple cases of murder when he was defending himself and his girlfriend.

Rittenhouse: the primary case

Ten heinous lies about Kyle Rittenhouse debunked

In a 22 17 November 2021 article, Miranda Devine of the New York Post outlined ten lies that worked to undermine the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

The table below provides a link (on the left) to one example of each of the lies cited and the lie identified by Ms. Devine and the first one or two sentences of her explanation. For greater detail, go to the article by Miranda Devine of the New York Post.

Media Lie The truth
  1. He killed two black BLM protesters.
All three of the men he shot in self-defense during violent riots in Kenosha on Aug. 25 last year were white.
  1. He crossed state lines.
He lived 20 miles from Kenosha in Antioch, Ill., with his mother and sisters. But his father, grandmother, aunt, uncle, cousins and best friend live in Kenosha.
  1. Rittenhouse took an AR-15 across state lines.
His rifle was kept in a safe at his best friend’s stepfather’s house in Kenosha.
  1. The gun was illegal.
Under Wisconsin law, he was entitled to possess the AR-15 as a 17-year-old.
  1. Rittenhouse’s mother drove him across state lines to the riot.
Wendy Rittenhouse, 46, never went to Kenosha (on 25 August 2020).
  1. He was an “active shooter” who took his gun to a riot looking for trouble.
(Refer to the article for the complete lie and defense against this lie — it is too long.)
  1. Rittenhouse is a “white supremacist,” as then-candidate Joe Biden labeled him in a tweet showing the teenager’s photograph.
The FBI scoured Kyle’s phone and found nothing about white supremacy or militias, the court heard.
  1. He “flashed white power signs” with Proud Boys.
After spending three months in jail, Kyle was freed on $2 million bail two days after his 18th birthday last year, and went to a bar for a beer, with his mother and other adults, which is legal in Wisconsin. He posed for selfies with strangers at the bar, who the media say are Proud Boys, and was pictured making the OK sign with his thumb and forefinger.
  1. He wore surgical gloves “to cover his fingerprints.”
Kyle wore gloves because he was giving first aid to protesters.
  1. Judge Bruce Schroeder is a “Trumpy” racist biased toward the defense.
This slur is based on the fact he would not let the prosecution use the term “victim” — common practice when the jury has not ruled on a case.

Of course, the reason that socialists like Cori Bush took after Kyle Rittenhouse is that totalitarians cannot have you defending yourself

The reason that AOC, Cori Bush, Joe Scarborough and multiple socialist-supporting members of the political class and media class go after people like Rittenhouse comes from the fact that they cannot allow you to see that you can defend yourself.

For a similar reason, Biden does not allow “migrants” from Venezuela and Cuba to come to America. They know that socialism kills a nation and must be defeated.

 

Problems with the Build Back Better bill

According to Kevin McCarthy, the bill:

Don’t forget that the Congressional Budget Office estimates that this Build Back Better bill will add $367 Billion to the deficit in the first 10 years.

Inflation in 2022. Are the following articles Biden’s way of conceding to America that he caused it?

The first admission that should start us to think

Biden concedes his COVID stimulus checks fueled spike in inflation

The New York Post pointed out how Dementia Joe admitted that the COVID-relief checks spurred inflation. (Emphasis is mine via bolding.)

BidenBucksPresident Biden on Wednesday conceded that inflation is at a three-decade high because “people have more money now” as a result of his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus legislation, recognizing a central point made by people who are arguing against a nearly $2 trillion sequel.

Biden unexpectedly endorsed the stance of his critics who have said the US dollar is losing its buying power as a result of the government printing money to cover COVID-19 aid.

The president said stimulus funds that he signed into law are in part to blame for demand exceeding the supply of goods, causing a backlog at major US ports and the highest rate of annual inflation since 1990.

“The irony is people have more money now because of the first major piece of legislation I passed. You all got checks for $1,400. You got checks for a whole range of things,” Biden said during a speech in Baltimore.

“If you’re a mom and you have kids under the age of 7, you get $300 a month and if it’s over 7 to 17, you’re getting $360 a month,” he said, misstating the second amount, which is $250 per month.

“It changes people’s lives. But what happens if there’s nothing to buy and you got more money to compete for getting [goods]? It creates a real problem,” Biden said.

“On the one hand, we’re facing new disruptions to our supplies. At the same time, we’re also experiencing higher demand for goods because wages are up as well as people have money in the bank. And because of the strength of our economic recovery, American families have been able to buy more products.”

But the president said he believes inflation will subside, arguing that many people temporarily are sitting at home ordering goods online rather than blowing their money at restaurants and bars.

“[People] are not going out to dinner and lunch and going to local bars because of COVID. So what are they doing? They’re staying home and ordering online and they’re buying product,” Biden said.

“Well, with more people with money buying product and less product to buy, what happens? The supply chain’s the reason, the answer is you guys, I’ll get to that in a minute. But what happens? Prices go up.”

Notice that we had to endure a lot of Biden’s “explaining” before we got to the truth

If you had been listening to Biden as he explained the introduction of inflation, you would have endured 15 minutes of his talking to hear 2 seconds of him admitting that he caused the inflation.

So we follow it with more giveaways celebrated at this signing party

Biden celebrates rare win with US infrastructure bill signing

France24 reported in a 15 November 2021 article how Joe Biden celebrated the passage of the “infrastructure” bill.

BidenBucksBattered by critics and dire opinion polls, President Joe Biden signed into law the biggest US infrastructure revamp in more than half a century at a rare bipartisan celebration in the White House on Monday.

The $1.2 trillion package will fix bridges and roads, change out unhealthy lead water pipes, build an electric vehicle charging network, and expand broadband internet. It is the most significant government investment of the kind since the creation of the national highways network in the 1950s.

“We’ve heard countless speeches… but today we’re finally getting this done,” Biden told hundreds of invitees on the White House South Lawn.

“So my message to the American people is this: America is moving again and your life is going to change for the better.”

Most of the crowd were Democrats but there was also a visible handful of Republicans. Notable among the Democrats were senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, two moderates who have warred with more leftwing members of the party, slowing down Biden’s agenda.

The bill is “proof that Democrats and Republicans can come together to deliver results,” Biden said. “Let’s believe in one another and let’s believe in America.”

Infrastructure spending is popular, but the goal eluded Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump for four years, turning his administration’s frequent promises of an imminent “infrastructure week” into a running joke.

Even now, Biden had to fight for months to get his squabbling Democratic Party to vote, risking a humiliating failure.

Democrats only narrowly control a bitterly divided Congress, but in a scarce moment of cooperation they were ultimately joined by a significant number of Republicans in the Senate and a symbolic handful in the House.

From this incredibly propagandistic article, we get some glimmers of truth

This bit of text proves a series of facts:

 

Fort Worth residents concerned over a threat of “soldiers … locked and loaded” at a school board meeting

Featured

Call Merrick Garland! Call the FBI! A Black Supremacist threatened to bring thousands of soldiers, “locked and loaded”

The Texan reported in a 16 November 2021 article that a man who supported the forced teaching of Critical Race Theory threatened a school board and the people protesting CRT.

Hat tip: Chris Salcedo Show on AM 700 KSEV (where I first hear audio of this attack, aired on the 15 November 2021 show)

Parents and other residents are raising concerns about threatening remarks made during the public comment section of the Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) board meeting on November 9.

According to video footage taken by Carlos Turcios, a FWISD graduate, Malikk Austin made “threatening remarks” during his one minute of speaking time. He turned to address the audience, rather than the school board, and criticized them for hate and fear-mongering over critical race theory. 

CRT_SupporterHe then said, “I’ve got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go,” and after being escorted away from the podium and out of the meeting, he appeared to say he would bring his sons with him next time, “locked and loaded.”

Carol Guarnieri, a grandmother, graduate of Arlington Heights High School, and long-time Fort Worth resident, was present at the meeting. “I was nervous about walking to the car in the parking lot. I was alarmed at what transpired,” she told The Texan.

Guarnieri also said she filed a police report on Tuesday, November 16 about what she considers a domestic terrorist threat.

This will not be investigated by Biden’s FBI, although the statements are terroristic, liberalism and color will prevail here

Had this been a Black man or woman making a statement in opposition to CRT and they made a statement like this, they likely would have been wrestled to the ground like Scott Smith.

Had this been a person of any color who made a cogent argument against Critical Race Theory, they would have fallen into Merrick Garland’s definition of “domestic terrorist.”

However, this man (shown below) made threats against conservatives while cloaked in a darker shade of skin. While race should not be a consideration for any Christian (or, hopefully, any American), Barack Obama and Joe Biden have returned race to center stage.

Not so oddly, the party that continually calls up the “race card” has now become the anti-Martin Luther King, Junior party. That is to say, rather than striving for the day when “my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” Democrats want us to think of the Black and Hispanic race first.

Not so much with the Asian or White races.
