    This riot crisis will pass, and then it’s nothing but bad choices ahead for Badfinger Biden, not that he realizes it. He’s too far gone and far too busy watching his stories on the tee-vee to negotiate the crucial strategic decisions he faces if he wants to win. Even if not he has not already disembarked the short bus in Seniletown, he’s at least wandering aimlessly through its suburbs. The calls he has to make – about reacting to the failing Antifa/Democrat insurrection, about picking a veep, and about how to handle the only guy who seemed to grow younger,...

  • Did Rod Rosenstein Just Commit Perjury Today? Going by How the DOJ Treated Michael Flynn–Yes.

    Well, it’s former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s day to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Russian collusion fiasco. And it’s not going very well. Well, for starters, Rosenstein doesn’t feel that disgraced ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe lied to him. McCabe was fired because he lied. He, like Robert Mueller, also appeared to put the second act of this clown show on autopilot. As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, Rosenstein was either incompetent or complicit in this whole witch hunt.

    Donald Trump has appointed and the Senate has confirmed 197 Article III federal judges through June 1, 2020, his fourth year in office. This is the second-most Article III judicial appointments through this point in all presidencies since Jimmy Carter (D). The Senate had confirmed 228 of Carter’s appointees at this point in his term. The average number of federal judges appointed by a president through June 1 of their fourth year in office is 176. The median number of Supreme Court justices appointed is two. Along with President Trump, Presidents Barack Obama (D), Bill Clinton (D), and George H.W....

    Activists of the far-left Antifa movement began planning to foment a nationwide anti-government insurgency as early as November as the U.S. presidential campaign season kicked off in earnest, according to a law enforcement official with access to intelligence behind the shadowy group. . . . “Their Marxist ideology seeks not only to influence elections in the short term but to destroy the use of elections as the determining factor in political legitimacy.” Added Joe Myers, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official and counterinsurgency expert, “President Trump’s election and revitalization of America are a threat to Antifa’s nihilist goals.
  • Romney’s Approval Rises To 56/42 In New Utah Poll. How Come?

    Hotair ^ | 06/03/2020 | AllahPundit
    A fascinating result considering how he was polling after his fateful impeachment vote. I’ll give you three theories to explain it. A new UtahPolicy.com/KUTV 2News survey shows 56 percent of Utah voters either “strongly” or “somewhat” approve of Romney’s job performance. 42 percent say they disapprove. Romney is in a strong political position right now with a net positive approval of +14.That’s a massive reversal from our previous survey in March when just 36 percent of Utahns approved of Romney’s job performance, while 49 percent disapproved…69 percent of “strong” Republicans disapprove of how Romney is handling his job, but...

    Complete with their organized violent antifa and blm blackshirt/brownshirt hit squads using fascist tactics to loot, burn and terrorize businesses, churches, civilans and police alike. This is the totalitarian way to gain and hold power. This is your country under socialist-democrat rule--the blue portion anyway--totally lawless.

    The Atlantic ^ | 6/3/2020 | Jeffrey Goldberg
    James Mattis, the esteemed Marine general who resigned as secretary of defense in December 2018 to protest Donald Trump’s Syria policy, has, ever since, kept studiously silent about Trump’s performance as president. But he has now broken his silence, writing an extraordinary broadside in which he denounces the president for dividing the nation, and accuses him of ordering the U.S. military to violate the constitutional rights of American citizens. “I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” Mattis writes. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is...

  • Biden proposed 'Police Officer's Bill of Rights' two months after Rodney King beating

    Nearly 30 years before a bystander with a cellphone caught a Minneapolis Police Department officer restraining George Floyd with his knee on Floyd's neck, police in Los Angeles were covertly taped beating a criminal suspect. And Sen. Joe Biden, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, proposed legislation siding with police. The Police Officer's Bill of Rights, sponsored by Biden in May 1991, came halfway through his 36-year career representing Delaware in the Senate and while he was at the peak of his power on Capitol Hill. With Democrats in the majority, Biden headed the Senate committee with jurisdiction over criminal justice...

  • Will Joe Biden Be America's Second Catholic President?

    Townhall.com ^ | June 3, 2020 | Terry Jeffrey
    While the Republican Party has never nominated a Catholic for president, no Democrat has been elected president in the last 60 years without having the support of at least a plurality of Catholic voters, as measured by either an exit poll or Gallup's last preelection poll. In 1960, the last Gallup poll before the election showed John F. Kennedy leading Republican candidate Richard Nixon 78% to 22% among Catholics. Kennedy became the first Catholic president. In 12 of the 14 elections since then, the candidate who won the Catholic vote also won the White House. And Republicans Richard Nixon and...

    On May 21, the CNN "Reliable Sources" newsletter mocked the governor of Florida under the headline "Stuck in his safe space: DeSantis hides on Fox." The governor holds press briefings to take questions from Florida reporters, but he hasn't said yes to CNN or MSNBC or CBS, all of which have requested an interview. To conservatives, this kind of shaming fails to address how the rest of the national media are a "safe space" for Democrats like Joe Biden. CNN would never consider a headline reading, "Stuck in His Safe Space: Biden Hides From Fox." On Friday afternoon, the presumptive...

    American cities are burning. Civil unrest is beyond a boiling point. Racial tensions are flaring up from coast to coast. Riots are everywhere. A familiar and often repeated narrative from the media is a likening of today’s America to another tumultuous time in our shared history, that of 1968. In ’68, a pivotal presidential campaign was underway against the backdrop of a divided America. The assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, coupled with a growing opposition to the war in Vietnam, had America appearing to tear itself apart at the seams. In this election year, there does indeed...

    In Columbia, S.C., on Saturday, a young protester told a reporter that she just didn’t think voting is “how change happens.” “They’ve been telling us to do that for so long,” she added, “and we’ve done it — and look at everything that’s still going on.” Fury over the cruel death of George Floyd, a black man in police custody, combined with fear of a deadly virus and its painful economic impact, make this a dark, dizzying moment in our national life. But African-Americans shouldn’t feel hopeless, because the black vote does matter — it has never mattered more. It...

    Do the #NeverTrumps ever stop?

Former officials from the George W. Bush administration have formed a super PAC to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House campaign. The super PAC, dubbed 43 Alumni For Biden, referring to the 43rd president, was formed Monday, according to a Tuesday filing with the Federal Election Commission.

    Business mogul John Catsimatidis is laying the groundwork to run for mayor again next year. Catsimatidis, 71, a Republican whose Red Apple Group owns the Gristedes supermarket chain, a slew of energy companies and 77 WABC radio, said he’s forming an exploratory committee for a 2021 mayoral bid. He ran for mayor in 2013, narrowly losing in the 2013 Republican primary to former MTA boss and deputy mayor Joe Lhota. Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, won the general election and was reelected in 2017.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania held a primary election Tuesday amid civil unrest, a pandemic, the introduction of new voting machines in some counties and the debut of mail-in balloting that pushed county election bureaus to their limits. The result of the highest-profile contest on the ballot was a foregone conclusion: President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, uncontested for their party's nominations, both won their primary Tuesday in Pennsylvania. The lack of drama in the outcome of the presidential primary and the huge number of voters who opted to vote by mail meant turnout was light.
