Who needs questions and answers, when you can post a message from Cardi B? C’mon man! Via Washington Examiner. Joe Biden held a question-and-answer session on Instagram that featured no questions or answers, much to the delight of the Trump campaign. The Democratic presidential nominee posted a story to his Instagram page on Tuesday urging supporters to send in questions that he would answer, a popular feature on the platform…. Several hours later, no questions were answered. The campaign added other content on the page, including a post from rapper Cardi B, but no questions or answers were posted to Biden’s 3.4 million followers…. Lol Joe Biden’s staff posted “I’m answering your questions. Ask me anything!” on his Instagram story...

Biden’s Pittsburgh speech yesterday was, as expected, hailed by the Dems and MSM (but I repeat myself) as a big success. The NYT called it a “blistering speech” and a “forceful rebuttal to Trump.” Yeah, no. It was a shocking pack of lies, as Tucker Carlson stated. (see below) But I do admit to enjoying the ‘highlights’: HT Breitbart. Joe Biden's campaign is a complete mess. They can't sort out technical difficulties at his campaign stop in Pittsburgh, PA. pic.twitter.com/u3grhOwVPW — Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) August 31, 2020 Trump is responsible for the ‘birth of the right American future’ ? HT Weazel Zippers. @ 1:48 mark “I want to make it absolutely clear … Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not...

There were so many lies, er, untruths, at the Democrats’ Trump Derangement Syndrome Telethon, er, Amateur Hour, er, Orange Man Bad Show, er, convention, that it was hard to keep track. But along with their absurd claims that President Trump was somehow responsible for COVID-19, and that the amazing economic recovery of the past three years was thanks to Obama (um, no!), there were also many lies of omission. Yes, it would have been nice if someone had acknowledged the reality of the violence in (Democrat-led) cities. But here is something else they conveniently omitted: the Obama-Biden Team response to the H1N1 virus, as Kimberley Strassel reminds us: Via Wall Street Journal. (Do click through for the full commentary) …Team...

Confiscating, er, taxing 60% of the wealth of U.S. billionaires is really dumb. Unless you are a total ‘economics – illiterate,’ or an old Communist, er, Socialist Senator from Vermont. But I repeat myself. Via Issues & Insights. Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has another bright socialist idea: A 60% wealth tax on billionaires to pay for nationalized health care for a year. Such nuttiness would be easy to ignore were it not for the fact he’s now the driving intellectual force behind Joe Biden’s basement-based presidential campaign. As any economist worth his salt will tell you, a wealth tax is perhaps the most pernicious tax, since it punishes people retroactively for their hard work, thrift and smart...

Looks like Joe Biden has indeed been given a cognitive test, and we know that he must have done poorly. His strange comment about the “difference between an elephant and a lion” is actually a quick way to assess if someone’s cognitive abilities are intact. One of the questions is: “How are a dog and a lion alike?” The “two-point” response is, ”they’re both animals,” the “one-point” response is along the lines of “they both have four legs,” or “they both have tails,” which suggests concrete thinking and some difficulty in abstract reasoning. (The “zero” response is: “they’re not alike. A dog is a dog and a lion is a lion.”) So yes, the question is lodged somewhere in his...

Yes, the mayor of NYC actually said it. Because apparently it is soooo much easier for him to target Jewish mothers and their children than to stop protesters, er, looters/arsonists. After everything NY has allowed, this is disgusting and outrageous. https://t.co/6BdPwXkHq5 — Tammy Bruce (@HeyTammyBruce) June 9, 2020 Via Free Beacon. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio (D.) on Thursday said he would not reopen playgrounds to families because it is “too much of a risk” but said large protest gatherings may continue…. Hamodia journalist Reuvain Borchardt had asked de Blasio how it was fair to allow protests to continue amid the coronavirus pandemic while families are prohibited from using playgrounds. “How does it promote equality, Mr. Mayor, when...

‘Nice’ leftist touch, to totally ignore any mention of honoring the memory of our military men and women on Memorial Day. And praising Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his “responsible decisions” ? Would that include the deaths of over 5400 nursing home residents, thanks to his “responsible decisions” ? With all due respect, Hillary should just shut up and read Tammy Bruce’s latest Washington Times column: N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s careless cruelty shows in coronavirus nursing …Did Mr. Cuomo’s attitude that elderly victims of the virus were going to die “no matter what you do” inform his decision to send them back to nursing homes? Did he not want to “waste” a bed anywhere else on these supposedly hopeless cases? When...

Looks like 13 is not a lucky number for ‘Sandy’ Ocasio-Cortez; ‘thirteen’ is the total number of signatures she got from members of the progressive group Working Families Party, and she needed fifteen signatures to get on the ballot. But thirteen may be lucky for NYC; this makes it easier for her primary challenger to become the Democrat nominee for her district in November. Bye bye AOC? Meanwhile, poor Sandy is being shunned by her fellow NY Democrats, who do not want to work with her. As POTUS would say: SAD! 🙂 Via NY Post. New York’s elected officials are avoiding spotlight-loving firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like, well, the plague, opting to craft their coronavirus response efforts without the lefty...
CBS News Blames ‘Editing Mistake’ for Using Footage From Italian Hospital to Describe Conditions in NYCby Shifra on March 30, 2020
An “editing mistake” warrants an on-air apology. Stay tuned…or maybe, let’s not bother to. Via Daily Caller. ….“CBS This Morning” discussed Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s allegation that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) only gave the state 400 ventilators when they needed 30,000…. “CBS This Morning” aired a short clip of Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House coronavirus response team, expressing her concern about the New York City and New York metro area…. The segment cut away to Cuomo bashing FEMA for an apparent lack of ventilators. This is when CBS News showed footage that Sky News had reported as being from an Italian hospital, despite CBS’s report being entirely focused on New York’s coronavirus crisis…....

This is now the face of the Democrat Party: Childish SOTU-tearing hissy fits, and taking zero responsibility for dumpster fires they created. Attempting to pin the blame for the Dem Iowa caucus disaster on Trump supporters would be as absurd as, say, Hillary blaming Matt Lauer for her 2016 election loss. Oh wait, she actually did. Via Fox News. It’s Trump’s fault! Red-faced Iowa Democrats have zeroed in on a new culprit for the botched caucuses that may cost the Hawkeye State its time-honored role as the kickoff to presidential races. After first blaming an app for the inability to declare Monday night, a problem that still lingers even as frustrated candidates have packed up and moved on to New...

Hey, Hillary peeps: What Happened? Will you now be blaming the disaster of the Iowa caucus phone app on sexism? misogyny? racism? Russian interference? Women under pressure from men? Obama? James Comey? The DNC? We await your excuses. Via Daily Caller. The firm behind the phone app that caused delays in reporting the results of the Iowa Democratic caucus is operated by three Hillary Clinton campaign veterans. Iowa Democrats intended to use the app, created by Shadow Inc., to make it easier for the state’s 1,700-odd precincts to report the results of their individual caucuses. But officials at precincts across the state reported that they had trouble operating the app and submitting the voting data. The Iowa Democratic Party, which...

Little Sandy just admitted the gubmint doesn’t do such a great job running health care…so let’s all vote for her Socialist pal Bernie, who would totally control our health care. Via Washington Examiner. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to nationalize and control the healthcare of every person in the nation, yet she cannot fathom choosing her own taxpayer-subsidized insurance plan from the 66 generous gold plans offered by the United States Congress. Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange. They are Gold plans that are partially subsidized. That means I get to “choose” btwn 66 complex financial products. This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, &no one should go through this, either. pic.twitter.com/bIeD71CD5g —...

Nice going, Mayor Bill “Worst-Mayor-Ever-In-The-History-of-NYC” de Blasio, using your personal security detail from the NYPD to move your daughter’s furniture back to Gracie Mansion. Because apparently, rules are for the ‘Little People,’ not for the Elite. Via NYDN. City conflict of interest rules clearly bar Mayor de Blasio and his family from ordering police detectives to help move Chiara de Blasio out of an apartment in Brooklyn, ethics experts told the Daily News. City law says it is a violation of the city charter “for any public servant to use City letterhead, personnel, equipment, resources, or supplies for any non-City purpose.” A former high-ranking official with the city Conflicts of Interest board batted down the excuse de Blasio spokeswoman Freddi...

This Washington Post article is absurd and laughable. You know who was into Karl Marx? No, not AOC. Abraham Lincoln. https://t.co/p7uG2JtEWx — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) July 27, 2019 But it caught the eye of the Dayton mass-murderer, who took it seriously. HT Heavy. Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”…. Via Federalist. The Washington Post has seen better days. The newspaper that once brought us Watergate published an article last week titled “You know who was...
