Not fake news Walt those are the actual numbers and he comparison to Trump is real. Wishful thinking on your part. Now you may not llike the polls but the numbers are real.

Walt

Real numbers? when you call only LIBS,, you get LIB results.
Your hero Gavin is within the margin of LOSING.

Biden is unfit for office.

But keep right on fellating that DEM donkey.(you better look that one up) That donkey is smoking so much,, it will have COPD before Biden drops dead.

Germany’s floods

ABOUT THOSE GERMAN FLOODS
Most people understand that leftists take advantage of real or alleged crises to expand their power. But an equally important phenomenon is that they use crises of various kinds to excuse their own incompetence. (Covid has served such a purpose over the last year and a half; it has become a near-universal excuse for failure of performance.) The recent floods in Germany, which killed more than 150 people, are a case in point, as Die Welt and the No Tricks Zone report.

The starting point, of course, is the Left’s knee-jerk blaming of German floods on “climate change”–just as the current drought in the Midwestern United States is blamed on “climate change.” Any weather you don’t like is “climate change,” and “climate change” exists for the sole purpose of giving government more power over our lives.

Well.....looks who’s back.....and this after being all wet eyed yesterday.

Barry Pruett

Paul. DOJ said that this guy Barrack his all this from Trump and was a disgrace to the former president. Lol. You need to read more.

Walt

So Emery,, when does John Kerry get the same treatment?
Is he an/was unregistered foreign agent?
Funny, it was fine when he was meddling with Iran as a private person. What made him special?

Walt

Here is an easy one for the Emery to answer..
Just WHO has no access to an ID???????
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pennsylvania-lt-gov-voter-id-requirements-insidious
"Fetterman said the voter ID requirements risk disenfranchising residents who don’t have access to ID and he downplayed the existence of fraud. "

I will say BIGFOOT is about it.

Paul Emery

Just reporting the facts Barry. He was busted, 250 million bail. By the way what does this mean? Can you reword it?

Don Bessee

Its 5 million cash in leu of 250 mil bail oh great pony tail of ignorance you might want to get past the headlines but that would require comprehension.

Paul Emery

Barry

Are you saying it is not a fact that Trump Ally Tom Barrack was Freed on $250 Million Bond after being arrested for Illegal United Arab Emirates.Lobbying? What exactly are you referring to that wasnot a fact.

Bill Tozer

re: Barrack
Hey, if he failed to register as lobbying for a foreign government, then shame on him. Normal practice is for the State Department to send the alleged American or American Company a letter saying to register now or face big fine. Think they have prosecuted such violations about once a decade. About 3-5 cases since....I dunno...1979 or something. Just shows how weaponized the DOJ has become. Lobbying the administration for UAE? Not good. Use him as an example. Send him off to the Black Hole of Calcutta.

Paul Manafort got charged for lobbying in behalf of the Pro-Russian President of Ukraine as one of the many charges he face. However, his partner in the Ukraine PR work, one Tony Podesta, was allowed to register later when he got his letter from the State Department without prosecution. As a side note of interest, years ago Barrack loaned Manafort money to refinance his home in New Hampshire. Small world.

Speaking of Tony Podesta.....whose PR firm went bankrupt when Trump won and Podesta lost all his clients who were banking on Hillary’s win.....

‘Communist China Tech Firm Huawei Hires Democrat Lobbyist Tony Podesta For Biden Connections’

Walt

"Lord" Fauci.. The Michael aventail of the medical field.
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/madison-cawthorn-call-legal-action-anthony-fauci
His lies and flipflops are coming back to bite.
"Rep. Madison Cawthorn says he stands by his criticism of Dr. Anthony Fauci after the doctor appeared on Fox News and rebuked Cawthorn’s suggestion that legal action should be taken against Fauci.

"Dr. Fauci broke his oath," Cawthorn told Fox News. "Not only his oath in Congress, but his Hippocratic oath as a doctor, to do no harm. I stand by my statements, and justice will be served."

Cawthorn explained to Fox News the specific laws that he believes Fauci violated after testifying to Congress under oath that no "gain of function" research was funded by the United States at the Wuhan lab, which several Republicans, including Sen. Rand Paul, believe was a lie.

FAUCI, RAND PAUL TRADE 'LYING' ACCUSATIONS ABOUT GAIN-OF-FUNCTION RESEARCH IN HEARING ON DELTA VARIANT

"U.S. Code sections 1621 and 1001 of Title 18 are the two relevant legal standards at play here," Cawthorn said. "Section 1621 states that anyone who ‘willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true’ is guilty of perjury and shall be fined or imprisoned up to five years, or both. Section 1001 stipulates that ‘whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the government of the United States, knowingly and willfully" falsifies or conceals information, including before a congressional committee's inquiry, may also be fined or imprisoned up to five years.’’"

Sen. Paul agreed with Cawthorn’s conclusion and filed a criminal referral against Dr. Fauci based on reports that the U.S. government spent money on gain of function research at the Wuhan lab in question."

Paul Emery

Just reported that a Trump colleague had been busted. Nothing to do with Trump? Really Walt. Barrack chaired Trump’s 2016 inaugural committee, which, by the way, is currently under criminal investigation by D.C. attorney general Karl Racine. Hi is known to be one of Trumps best friends which is agree is making an assumption he has any friends

House Dems to the rescue!

‘House Democrats Block Bill Declassifying The Origins Of COVID-19’

House Democrats killed a bill Tuesday that would have required the White House to declassify intelligence related to the origins of the COVID-19 virus after the proposal from Sen. Hawley of Missouri and Sen. Braun of Indiana passed unanimously in the Senate.

The COVID-19 Origin Act was brought to the floor by Representatives Burgess (R-TX), LaHood (R-IL), and Wenstrup (R-OH) before it was shot down in a 216 to 207 vote.

Fauci spent a whole year working with FB to block all research papers/ lab scientists/investigative reporting on the origins of the Wuhan Kung Flue Virus. A whole year and FB and the mainstream media went along as ordered.

And House Dems blocked looking into it???? By, we know which side of their bread is buttered.

As far as The Fraud Fauci and the medical Dr. Rand Paul skirmish goes, it’s the same game as the CRT white people haters are playing. They do everything straight from the CRT handbook says, but call it a different name, lol. We are not teaching CTR, we are teaching history! We are not teaching White Systemic Structural Racism, we are teaching classroom behavior.

Same with the Fraud Fauci. By the NIH’s own definition of Gain of Fiction (which is barred by Congress and the NIH among others) you can go down the list of what the definition consists of and check each and every item. It’s sure as hell is Gain of Function by definition, but the Lying Fraud Fauci says it’s not gain of function. Meets all the criteria, but don’t call it gain of function!

Fraudster Fauci says the NIH NEVER gave money to fund gain of function to the Wuhan Lab. No, he gave tons of taxpayer dollars throughout the years to his buddy Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance who in turn funneled money to the Wuhan Lab with our hard earned money.

Peter Dastak’s (EcoHealth Alliance) grant request to NIH listed every single procedure and lab experiment that comprises the NIH’s own definition of Gain of Function research. But, don’ t call it Gain of Function!!, Don’t call it CRT.

4 million deaths. And they still claim the novel virus jumped from the horseshoe bat lousy inept very inadequate (non) carrier of SARS) in Wuhan to some unknown yet to be found missing link to a human being! Beam me up, Scottie.

Dems to the resue! Blame Trump!

If nothing else, Trump’s instincts were right on. He sniffed that one out but the media squelched it.

You need to actually read before you shoot off your yap.

But what he's charged with is just fine when a LIB does it,, right O buzzard?

No comment on Kerry? He did it to. How bout Hillary's guy?

"Former President Donald Trump is more popular with U.S. voters than President Joe Biden, according to a Rasmussen poll released on Friday.

Fifty-one percent of voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Biden compared to 52 percent who have a somewhat favorable opinion of Trump. More people have an unfavorable view of Biden (48 percent) than Trump (46 percent)."

Another 4.5 trillion......

‘Biden infrastructure plans could cost a projected $225,000 per job created through 2031
Based on a Moody's analysis, Biden's full agenda, combined with the bipartisan infrastructure deal, would cost roughly $4.5 trillion and create 20 million jobs over a 10-year period’

https://justthenews.com/government/congress/bidens-infrastructure-proposals-would-cost-225-million-job-based-moodys

Goldwein said he has some issues with the Moody's report.

"The report seems to be based on, sort of, an idealized version of what's happening," he said. "They count all sorts of offsets for the bipartisan infrastructure framework that aren't actually going to save any money. We'll see what negotiators come up with. I'm optimistic that on Monday they're going to come out with better offsets, but right now they're counting stuff like unemployment savings from states cancelling benefits that already happens as if it's new savings."

Goldwein said the bipartisan framework estimates that the government will reduce unemployment fraud so much that unemployment insurance spending will be 45% lower in 2031 than it otherwise would be.

"There's no way that half of the program is fraud," he said. "Some of these assumptions don't hold up when you actually look at the legislation."

[Lol] ..... "Around here, we typically write the bills before we vote on them," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said. "That's the custom. Of course, here in the Senate, a failed cloture vote does not mean no forever."

‘J.K. Rowling Holds Her Ground’
The Rainbow Mafia attacks after she states the obvious about the “transgender” debate.

The next day, she (Rowling) was threatened with a pipe bomb in her mailbox. When questioned if this threat was about her stance on transgenderism and the dangers gender dysphoric men pose to biological women in bathrooms and changing rooms, she half-sarcastically replied: “Yes, but now [that] hundreds of trans activists have threatened to beat, rape, assassinate and bomb me I’ve realised that this movement poses no risk to women whatsoever.”

Here you go Walt. This is from DOJ

“The defendants repeatedly capitalized on Barrack’s friendships and access to a candidate who was eventually elected President, high-ranking campaign and government officials, and the American media to advance the policy goals of a foreign government without disclosing their true allegiances,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Mark Lesko of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. “The conduct alleged in the indictment is nothing short of a betrayal of those officials in the United States, including the former President.”

Trump did nothing and Paul is spinning facts. Lol

That's the best you can come up with Emery?
Pretty damned lame at best.

I see you whistled past the Biden poll grave site.

Paul Emery

There are accusations Barry but you as an attorney know the difference between accusations and legally presented evidence. Anybody can accuse anybody of anything. Do family members of Presidents of high level political figures cash in on family connectons? Sure they do. What else in new. Then you get sleazy operations like the Clinton Foundation but there appears to be nothing illegal in that at least enough to have a criminal investigation. So to sum up about Hunter Biden is say what's new-ho hum.

WHO’S PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN?
I don’t know whether these poll data are reproducible, but they are interesting. Most people, first of all, are proud of being Americans. That is a good thing. Conservatives are most proud, but 87% of moderates are proud to be Americans, too.

Hispanics are slightly more proud to be Americans than whites, but Asians, for some reason, are less proud in this survey. Maybe it is a fluke, or maybe quite a few Asians are angry at being discriminated against by institutions like Harvard and Yale, and many less renowned organizations and public bodies.

Basically, the only people who are not very proud to be Americans are “progressive activists.” That, plus Generation Z–no doubt a reflection of our unbelievably bad education system. Those groups are vastly over-represented on Twitter, where journalists and Democratic Party activists go to assess the mood of the American people. Which explains a lot.

So when the story is bribery and graft, so long as it is Democrats, it is all good. Nothing new here. Politicians have been ripping people off for years and years and years, and Paul is good with that as well.

They bought the lies and now know what creepy grampa joe is all about under the control of the socialists. Kiss the mid terms goodbye -

As President Joe Biden completed 100 days in office, the country was optimistic about the coming year, but now, just after hitting the six-month mark, Americans' optimism about the direction of the country has plummeted nearly 20 points, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds.

A majority -- 55% -- of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2. In the early May survey, Americans were more optimistic than pessimistic by a 28-percentage point margin. Optimism is now under water by 10 points. Looking ahead to the next 12 months, fewer than half -- 45% -- now report feeling optimistic about the way things are going, a significant drop from about two-thirds (64%) in the May poll

That forgetfulness working again Emery?
Now why were they chanting "lock her up"? Could it be for the laws she broke? Forget the illegal computer server in her possession? Lying about Benghazi?
Breach of national security?
"Gross negligence"( a crime in the legal sense) gets "redefined" for just her, into "extremely careless".(apparently not a crime) You kill someone and try that. Oh... Forget who she killed Emery? He came from right here. He was an ambassador.. That jog your memory any?

Then there was Billy taking trips on "Pediflight 1".

She was not indicted of arrested Walt. Do you believe that she and others should be put behind bars (locked up) without an investigation, indictment, trial and guilty verdict?

"These were among the claims laid out in a scathing statement Wednesday by Gus Papathanasiou, chairman of the Capitol Police Labor Committee, the officers' union, in response to the acting chief's disclosure Tuesday that her department had "failed" to protect the Capitol from a pro-Trump mob attack. Nearly 140 officers from the Capitol Police and the D.C. Metropolitan Police departments were injured during the attack, Papathanasiou said.

FILE - In this Jan. 6, 2021, file photo, U.S. Capitol Police push back rioters trying to enter the U.S. Capitol in Washington. A former State Department aide in President Donald Trump’s administration has been charged with participating in the deadly siege at the Capitol. Court papers say Federico Klein was seen wearing a “Make America Great Again" hat amid the throng of people trying to force their way into the Capitol. Authorities say Klein pushed his way toward the doors, where “he physically and verbally engaged” with officers trying to keep the mob back. Klein resigned from his position on Jan. 19, the day before Joe Biden was sworn in as president. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)

Two firefighters loaned to Washington for the day said they were the only medics on the Capitol steps Jan. 6, trying to triage injured officers as they watched the angry mob swell and attack police working to protect Congress.

Law enforcement agents were “being pulled into the crowd and trampled, assaulted with scaffolding materials, and/or bear maced by protesters,” wrote Arlington County firefighter Taylor Blunt in an after-action memo. Some couldn’t walk, and had to be dragged to safety.


Even the attackers sought medical help, and Blunt and his colleague Nathan Waterfall treated those who were passing out or had been hit. But some “feigned illness to remain behind police lines,” Blunt wrote.

The memo is one of hundreds of emails, texts, photos and documents obtained by The Associated Press. Taken together, the materials shed new light on the sprawling patchwork of law enforcement agencies that tried to stop the siege and the lack of coordination and inadequate planning that stymied their efforts.

WHO ARE THE TWO BIGGEST SCOUNDRELS AMONG DEMOCRATS?
I don’t know. That covers a lot of territory. But if we limit the inquiry to very famous Democrats, the answer might be Andrew Cuomo and Hunter Biden.

They have much in common. Both are sons of very famous fathers. Neither, in all likelihood, would have become prominent but for what their fathers accomplished. That’s certainly the case with Hunter Biden.

Both are the subject of sex scandals, albeit of somewhat different sorts. Andrew Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment by several women who worked in his administration.

Hunter Biden apparently was a fixture in the VIP lounges of various D.C. “gentlemen’s clubs” where, allegedly, he did crack cocaine with strippers. One stripper says he fathered her child.

And both Cuomo and Biden are under federal investigation.

Cuomo got off the hook to some extent last week when the Biden Justice Department dropped its investigation into COVID-19 deaths at New York’s state-run nursing homes. This was (or would have been) a civil rights investigation under CRIPA, the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act.

I don’t know whether the DOJ’s decision not to press forward with this investigation was justified. For all I know, it might have been. However, I have no confidence that the Biden DOJ made this decision based on the law and the facts. More likely, the decisions was based on politics.

Cuomo is not home and dry, however. Federal prosecutors apparently are still investigating whether the Cuomo administration obstructed justice in its response to a Justice Department request for information about nursing home deaths from the Wuhan virus. I discussed that matter here.

In addition, according to this report, federal prosecutors in New York City are believed to be investigating a state policy in March 2020 that pressed nursing homes to accept COVID-positive residents.

I suspect that the feds will decline to prosecute Cuomo. However, he must still worry about investigations reportedly being conducted by his political rival, Letitia James, New York’s attorney general. She is said to be looking into the sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo, as well the $5 million he received in exchange for writing a book about the state’s COVID response.

As for the Hunter Biden investigation, mum’s the word (as it should be at this point). I would be surprised if anything comes of it while Joe Biden is president, but we’ll see.

THE MARK OF KLAIN
Matt Continetti takes us behind the curtain in his column “The mark of Klain.” The column is worth reading in its entirety. However, he buries a nugget that belies the farcically self-proclaimed most ethical administration in history in re: the return of the swamp. I found this of particular interest:

Exit question: Have any of your appreciated readers been following the massive demonstrations against vaccine passports across Europe? Yuge crowds. Mind blogging. Germany, France, Italy, big ones in Merry-O-England and more. Yuge. 100s of thousands. Like, why isn’t our Lamestream media covering it? Maybe FB is blocking it. MAGA Crowds. Need drones to capture it. Looks like V-E day when the streets where filled in NYC...except the confetti. Conservatives, liberals, common folk and uncommon folk all demostrating in a rather cacophonous voice.

Just wondering. I didn’t think so. Nothing to see here but a 900 pound gorilla in the room. Make that an elephant. It’s like spontaneous combustion. Must be AstroTurf.

THE TELOS OF LEFTIST RACIAL IDEOLOGY

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/07/the-telos-of-leftist-racial-ideology.php

“Another lesson that when it comes to the left, what begins as satire soon becomes reality.”

I guess why that is the reason the Babylon gets fact checked so much. The satire publication’s articles appear so close to the truth that people think, “I bet that could happen”. Or could have happened.

How will more video change the graphic realties of a violent breakin at the Capitol in the videos already released? Do you believe that the breakin and riot was indeed full of "love" as Trump describes it?

PaulE 902am - How will the release of 14,000 hours of security video NOT continue to support the cherry-picked security videos that have been released? If they do support the already released videos, then why not make them available?

Do you see the selective blindness that lamestream consuming liberals suffer from? You and your kind are not even curious about the content of the 14K videos, or why they have not been released. This is an example of compliance of the converted that Marx wrote about and today's neo-Marxist Dems continue to promote.

‘Biden Cancels Trump DHS Proposal Targeting Terrorists, Spies’

“The regulation, opponents most frequently complained, ‘would significantly burden’ them with extra cost and time, would discriminate based on nationality, and would deny them access to ‘immigration benefits.’”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/biden-cancels-trump-dhs-proposal-targeting-terrorists-spies

Aha! Deny foreign students on two year visas to study at expensive universities access to immigration benefits? Sounds like they want to stay in the USA after college...or drop out and disappear into our populous and collect freebies. What about terrorists and spies of foreign governments?
I give Biden an F on Homeland Security as well as National Security.

Paul Emery

Not sure what they could contain that would make material difference to the facts at hand that there was a violent break in at the Capitol and private offices were invaded with many injuries to police. George, your Marx shtick is getting a bit monotonous and certainly doesn't apply here. People with their own videos of the event are free to do what they want with them as many have. Certainly no evidence of the love-in Trump describes so far.

Why can't they be released as a FOIA request?

do you realize that 14000 hours of video amounts to 583 days of video 24 hours a day. I'm sure you could carve out a love fest out of that if that's what you want to do. How do you propose that should be made available to the public?

Who would have expected the chi coms to find a new way to buy off the bidens -

The art dealer representing the president's son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world's "lead guy in China."

Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden's art to anonymous buyers.

Can you define Neo-Marxism Walt? Not sure what you're talking about. Here is a defination of Marxism according to Oxford dictionary

"the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, later developed by their followers to form the basis for the theory and practice of communism."
