MORE EVIDENCE: Deadbeat Dad Hunter Biden Is Still Listed as Member of Chinese Firm’s Board of Directors

I think the President should stop calling Joe Biden Sleepy Joe. It’s obvious that his real handle all along should have been Sleazy Joe. What a Family.

In October Joe Biden’s multi-millionaire son Hunter Biden reportedly stepped down from his Chinese-backed private equity firm that had $1.5 billion from Chinese. At least, that’s what his lawyers said. Advertisement – story continues below Hunter’s lawyer George Mesires, Biden said he’ll resign at the end of the month from the management company of a private equity fund that’s backed by Chinese state-owned entities. Hunter made the 1.5 billion dollar deal during a trip to China with his father on Air Force II. This comes after President Trump brought attention to the Biden Crime Family scandals.

Bernie Bros Will Reject Biden in the General Election

I have to hand it Joe, he looked almost coherent last night, at least in his personal demeanor. That coherence did not extend to his proposed policy objectives but then neither did Bernie’s. The Left is divided against itself. Will that house be able to stand? Stay tuned.

Joe Biden is ahead in the Democratic Party presidential race by 150 delegates and is well on his way to winning the 1,991 necessary to secure the nomination. And while the establishment rallies around Joe Biden, many Bernie Sanders supporters — the vanguard of the revolution — are refusing the call for unity. This isn’t surprising. In 2016, fully 12 percent of Sanders voters ended up voting for Donald Trump. It’s estimated that another 5 percent of Sanders voters didn’t vote at all in the general election. Certainly, there were other factors to consider, but a good argument can be made — especially in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania — that defections from Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump cost Hillary Clinton those states and the election. So what are Bernie Bros going to do in 2020 if Sanders, as expected, loses to Biden? The Guardian: “If we lose to Trump then hopefully within the next four years maybe an AOC or Rashida Tlaib would be able to run,” [19-year-old student Ekene] Okonkwo said, referring to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and another progressive politician who has gained popularity in the last two years. “Maybe there would be a better chance to save the planet.” Okonkwo is not alone in her unequivocal and uncompromising support for Sanders. She is part of a loosely connected but vocal group, sometimes uniting under hashtags like #BernieorBust or #NeverBiden who say they will not vote for Biden if he wins the nomination. While it’s nearly impossible to know how large the group is, hundreds of people have shared this sentiment, including progressive political candidates.

And The FISA Court Just Keeps Rolling Along

One casualty of the coronavirus outbreak is any idea of abolishing or even reforming the FISA court system. Quietly and with little fanfare, Democrats and Republicans have come together to keep this ongoing blatant violation of our Constitution alive. Once it became apparent that this system could be exploited by whatever party is in power to spy on the political opposition, it should have been allowed to die a quiet ignominious death.

The FISA court was initially set up to provide warrants to wiretap foreign spies. In 2016 it was used to spy on the political opponent of the incumbent administration. That the court was so easily deceived into granting the warrants fo this is bad enough. The fact there were no consequences for this total failure to protect the Constitutional rights of US citizens is unconscionable.

President Nixon was forced to resign, and many in his administration went to jail because of a botched burglary of Democratic campaign offices. For most others, at the very least, their Washington careers were history. What happened in 2016 was Watergate on steroids, but aside from a few people losing their jobs, there has been almost no accountability from the Obama Administration or the Clinton Campaign. 

Now, through their usual inaction, Congress has invited even more abuses of the kind that happened in the name of political partisanship in 2016. If someone as rich and powerful as Donald Trump was as a private citizen could be a victim of this, then anyone who opposes the status quo can easily be crushed at the whim of whoever is in power. That should scare the hell out of anyone, no matter what your political leanings.

CBS’s Scott Pelley Fact-Checks Mike Bloomberg On Trump Coronavirus Comment | The Daily Caller

Don’t bother to check the facts before you shoot your mouth off. Bloomberg may be new to the left but he is learning the tactics.

CBS host Scott Pelley fact-checked Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg on air after the former New York City mayor tried to claim that President Donald Trump described the coronavirus outbreak as a “hoax.”

“I find it incomprehensible that the president would do something as inane as calling it a ‘hoax’ which he did last night in South Carolina,” Bloomberg said when Pelley introduced the topic during a “60 Minutes” interview set to run Sunday evening.

“He said that the Democrats making so much of it is a Democratic hoax, not that the virus is a hoax,” Pelley responded.

Not seeming to understand what the CBS host was getting at, Bloomberg pressed on. “This is up to the scientists and the doctors as to whether there is a problem,” he continued. “They all, around the world, say that it is in some places, and has enormous potential to become one elsewhere. And it is just ignorant and irresponsible to not stand up and be the leader and say, ‘We don’t know, but we have to prepare for the fact that, if it is, we have the medicines and the structure and the knowledge to deal with it.’”

Trump fires up CPAC: President blisters 2020 Democrats, rips ‘low life’ Romney | Fox News

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — President Trump rallied the core of the conservative activist base Saturday with a fiery address mercilessly mocking his potential Democratic presidential foes, railing against the “Washington swamp” and shaming Republican Sen. Mitt Romney for defecting on the final impeachment vote. Closing out the annual Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington with a speech that lasted over 90 minutes, Trump ripped into what he called the “hate-filled left-wing mob.” But in the wake of impeachment and the Russia probe, Trump praised Republicans for sticking together.

Beginning Of The End For Sanders?

I know. Bernie is surging in the polls. Biden looks out of Gas. The race in South Carolina, which Biden was supposed to win handily, is now within reach for Sanders. But Bernie is no longer the amusing left wingnut sideshow he once was. He is on track to take down the Democratic Party as their nominee. While at the moment it seems that there is no way to stop him, the long knives are out for the socialist interloper. The Party lapdogs in the MSM are already attacking him with the type of vitriol and venom usually reserved for President Trump. 

Interviews are appearing all of a sudden showing Sanders defending some of the vilest dictators the world has ever known. When he is finally challenged on just how he plans on paying for what the Socialist Senator is proposing, he has no idea. His Medicare for all boondoggle will cost 30 trillion dollars by his own reckoning, which tells me the cost would be much higher. When pushed on the cost of this and the rest of his plan, he gives a vague disingenuous answer that it will be less than the cost of the current system.

Of course, most thinking people know that Bernie is a fraud. And he is not even a very convincing fraud. He has been able to peddle his idiotic proposals with the blessings of the DNC for some time. They were able to swat him aside with the Hillary Clinton cudgel in 2016. But Joe Biden, who was supposed to fulfill that role in this election cycle, isn’t up to the task. 

Watch for the emergence of more realistic analyses of what Bernie is proposing in the now unleashed press. Watch for the attacks on the debate stage, not only from the other candidates but from the moderators. Bloomberg took much of the fire that would have been directed at the frontrunner in the last debate. But everyone will have their marching orders. It will be amusing to watch.

Bloomberg and Deadpan Alley

Who as it that thought Michael Bloomberg would be the antidote to the Bernie Sanders problem? Yes, he has virtually unlimited cash, and the DNC is practically broke, but he has the personality of a dead fish. The expression on his face said, “Nobody talks to me like that!” He was woefully unprepared, and he was reeling from attacks coming from people who do not work for him. 

A lot of his support is coming from his advertizing blitz, but almost all of his support comes from people who do not know him. Unfortunately for Mikey, the more you get to know him, the less you like him. He tried to land a punch on Bernie with a legitimate challenge to his status as the leading Socialist in the country and a millionaire with three houses. But he couldn’t follow it up. 

When asked about his taxes, he couldn’t resist reminding us how complicated and voluminous his tax returns would be, because he is so successful. It wasn’t what he said but the tone we perceive emanating from him when he says it. Then he goes and confirms that perception by his incredibly stupid and unnecessary statement, “I can’t just go to Turbotax.” What we hear then is, “I can’t just go to Turbotax like the rest of you, peasants.”  

Here’s some advice, Mikey. Beating billionaire hating Democrats over the head with your wealth is probably not a good idea. They are not impressed. Especially when Elizabeth Warren challenges you with statements attributed to you about women, and your response was to look like you just ate a lemon and washed it down with castor oil. Your response to a challenge to release numerous former employees from non-disclosure agreements was a weak and pathetic, “They were entered into consensually and will remain confidential.” Really? On the same day that a story broke about a family that feels their signing of that agreement was coerced? Do you want to reconsider that answer?

Here is one more piece of advice just because I’m in a generous mood. You might want to read some things that are not written by journalists who work for you. You know, like people who you can’t order to report only positive things about your campaign. But you see that’s the problem with being a narcissistic, self-aggrandizing, arrogant, elitist blowhard. You can’t hear opinions you can’t buy, and that’s a lousy way to prepare for a debate or a campaign. 

I will give you one thing, though. You are living proof, Mikey, that making money is no indicator of how much “grey matter” you have. Because next to the farmers, factory workers, blue-collar and whitecollar workers who continue to build this country every day, you, sir, are an imbecile.
