Blowback is getting hotter. If you make them see the light, make them feel the heat...as the political saying. Turn up the heat, gentlemen and fine ladies.
The WH may be a den of evil doers, but the public is speaking loud and clear. No munching word. No mas! Comprende? It’s how our Democracy works. :). Fool me once and all that stuff. Can you hear me now?

‘George Floyd Rioter Admits He Set Pawnshop Ablaze But Denies Killing Man Inside
Lee has not been charged directly with the death of the man recovered in the pawnshop.’

https://www.dailywire.com/news/george-floyd-rioter-admits-he-set-pawnshop-ablaze-but-denies-killing-man-inside

In the article, if you substitute the word ‘business’ for ‘house’, and there was a angry mob of looters and rioters outside, you might be huddled somewhere in the back of the house, in a closet or bathroom floor. The accused said he looked inside the pawn shop and did not see anyone. That someone was in the back, fearing for his life. His worse nightmare was about to come true. Young man. Sad. Took two months to find him there.

And BLM and the Leftistinstas say, “Looting and rioting is just a form of protest.” Guess that includes arson as well.

DonB 1214pm - We should invite PaulE to comment on the Ari Fleisher video in your link. It seems that Bumblebrain is clearly the world class liar in the White House.

Paul Emery

Not a lie by Trumps standards just a clarification. For example you don't consider it a "lie" when Trump said Mexico was going to pay for the wall. You didn't consider it a lie when Trump said he would balance the budget. You didn't consider it a lie when Trump said he was going to present an infrastructure bill. You didn't consider it a lie when Trump said he would be presenting a new health care plan it two weeks. I can go on and on and on and on and on and on and on about Trump lies.

How about his denial of having an sexual event with porn star Stormy Daniels Did you really believe that?

Don Bessee

Right on cue the ponytail of ignorance gets back to his stripper fetishes and ignores the legislative process. LOL

PaulE 142pm - Paul you continue counting any failure of a politician to get into policy or law that was promised during a campaign, especially one that was as vehemently opposed and subtrefuged as Trump (twice impeached on pure politics). How would Democrat presidents (start with Obama) stack up.

Hmmm Interesting perspective George. You always manage to rationalize Trump to get him off the hook. Trump promised to have legislation on the table which he blatantly lied about nothing was ever presented or was even in the works. That's the difference. Just because it would have resistance is no excuse for at least presenting it. He claimed he had the power to make Mexico pay for the wall which was a lie because he didn't do it or even try

More specific lies later as I have time.

Paul - "How about his denial of having an sexual event with porn star Stormy Daniels Did you really believe that?"
So Trump denies it. And we have proof Stormy is not a credible person. And then there's Stormy's lawyer. Where is he right now, Paul?
What proof do you have he is lying, Paul?
Were you there, Paul?

What is you speculation as to why Trump paid Stormy Daniels $130,000?

Don Bessee

Too big lies that even creepy grampa joes team has to push back on the propaganda ministry -

The Biden administration offered rare condemnation of The Washington Post as well as The New York Times over tweets that hype the spread of the coronavirus among vaccinated Americans.

Ben Wakana, the White House Deputy Director of Strategic Communications & Engagement who also serves on the COVID-19 Rapid Response Team, was highly active on Twitter responded to viral tweets put out by two of the country's biggest newspapers.

The Washington Post was highlighting a CDC study that focused in on a "massive" outbreak in Massachusetts among the vaccinated.

"Vaccinated people made up three-quarters of those infected in a massive Massachusetts covid-19 outbreak, pivotal CDC study finds," the Post's tweet read.

"Completely irresponsible," Wakana reacted. "3 days ago the CDC made clear that vaccinated individuals represent a VERY SMALL amount of transmission occurring around the country. Virtually all hospitalizations and deaths continue to be among the unvaccinated. Unreal to not put that in context."

Speaking of marxists -

'Obey the Rules': China Warns U.K. After Royal Navy Enters Waters
Man Fined Over $1,000 for Setting Lawn on Fire Instead of Mowing it Amid Burn Ban

As the discussion on critical race theory continues across the country, several organizations are trying to keep the latest radical, toxic, and Marxist infiltration from the classrooms of California.

a dining room table© Provided by Washington Examiner
The struggle to accomplish this is difficult. Sticking to the core tenets of Marxism, CRT supporters seek to overthrow the existing system and vehemently reject those who oppose them. They adhere to a cult of intellectuality, presuming their way of thinking is greater than, and morally superior to, that of anyone who opposes them. The most recent example of this happened in Orange County this week.

Orange County’s Board of Education held a discussion on July 27 regarding the state’s new ethnic studies curriculum focusing on the ideas of racism, equity, and justice. The meeting was meant to give parents a chance to discuss the curriculum with a group of scholars. The event was supposed to be bipartisan. It included two Democrats, two independents, and one Republican. However, when one of the speakers became aware some of the panelists disagreed with critical race theory, she dropped out.

Cal State Northridge Professor Theresa Montaño, leading educator-activist for the Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum and ardent critical race theory supporter, did not feel speaking with people of diverse viewpoints was worth her time.

“If I had felt that tonight was going to open the door to meaningful dialogue, and a meaningful exchange of how to implement ethnic studies … I would have attended,” she said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

It is worth nothing that Montaño is the same scholar who allegedly called the Anti-Defamation League, a liberal-leaning Jewish civil rights group, a white supremacist organization. Montaño also has a history of quoting Marxist journals in her academic work. So, it should be no shock she refused to be present for diverse viewpoints that challenged her CRT beliefs.

This is a rather typical response of Marxist-inspired leftists when encountering opposition to critical race theory. Their cult of intellectuality rejects real inclusion and diversity of thought because it challenges the righteous indignation of their belief system. As much as CRT supporters preach about diversity and inclusion, those only apply insofar as they align with them. Otherwise, any opposition is summarily rejected, just as Montaño demonstrated. From at least the time of the publication of George Orwell's classic Animal Farm, critics have understood this refusal to brook dissent as a critical feature of Marxism.

Wenyuan Wu, executive director of the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, one of the fiercest fighters against implementing critical race theory in California schools and one of the panelists at the discussion, rejects Montaño’s line of thinking.

“There seems to be a common misperception that only ethnic studies 'specialists' of a particular brand of educator-activists can dominate the public discourse and policy deliberations on this topic,” Wu told me. “To be blunt, one needed not to be well-versed in Marxism or read The Communist Manifesto to become an efficient Red Guard in Mao’s China. By the same token, as an interdisciplinary field of scholarly inquiry, ethnic studies will benefit from intellectual fertilization of legal studies, history, sociology, economics, political science, anthropology, cultural studies, and so on.”

Wu also emphatically believes that ethnic studies would strongly benefit from taking a diverse approach to include the perspectives of those who oppose critical race theory. It's too bad that CRT advocates such as Montaño are turning what is supposed to be a "study" into a rigid ideology that allows no opposing viewpoints.

All former Presidents are referred to as "President.' Same with Generals. President Carter said this today, President Bush is painting at home and General Colin Powell appeared on such and such news outlet yesterday.

So, was Biden lying when he
said President Trump put him in charge of the Recovery in 2009? I cut Biden some slack (and you too) knowing Joe is not all there. Besides, it is part of the hate crime law to make fun of the mentally disabled. Read the stature.

Hunter's laptop is real. The FBI took charge of it.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8861635/FBI-taken-possession-Hunter-Bidens-laptops.html
"The FBI has seized Hunter Biden's laptop and confirmed the former vice president's son's controversial emails are 'authentic', while dispelling earlier claims that they are part of a Russia disinformation campaign."
Hunter has not denied it is his laptop.
The Justice Dept has had more than ample time to know if the laptop is in fact Hunter's and they are still 'investigating' (sitting on it) it so it is real.
If it were phoney they would know within weeks, if not days.

https://thefederalist.com/2021/07/30/kamala-harris-we-cant-secure-the-border-until-we-transform-central-america-into-a-paradise/

Once again, the Dems grossly misunderstand human nature. Millions upon million of people across the globe dream of coming to America— from all societies, rich or poor, educated or not. The Shining Light on the Hill beckons them and their spirit soars when thinking of America, the land of opportunity. The Liberty to chart one’s own course in life.

Obviously they dismiss the talk of America is a bad place, tainted through and through with systemic racism and discrimination. ‘The game is rigged.’
But, hope burns eternal within the human breast. If you can dream it, you can do it.!

So, with the dream burning with the souls of millions, you are going to stop people from coming to America by prettying up their own backyard? Good luck with that.

Yet they give in to their own lie by establishing the most draconian police states known to man to enforce their policies when they gain control of governments.

PaulE 1109pm - The list of socialist and communist states with draconian autocratic governments - each claiming to be some form of 'democratic republic' - is too long to contemplate. It was taught to all who paid attention during the cold war days, and has only recently been removed from America's public knowledge base as you so aptly confirm with your question. (Gregory's 711pm is a start.) And again you exhibit your deficit of only accepting narrow examples that, if not exactly replicated, cannot then be used to illustrate a point. There are countless roads to autocracy and tyranny, and only a very few to liberty and freedom.

Those mutha mullahs overplayed their hand -

Days before a new hard-line president is set to be inaugurated in Iran, Biden administration officials have turned sharply pessimistic about their chances of quickly restoring the nuclear deal that President Donald Trump dismantled, fearing that the new government in Tehran is speeding ahead on nuclear research and production and preparing new demands for the United States.

In June, they were so confident that another round of talks was imminent that a leading U.S. negotiator left his clothes in storage at a hotel in Vienna, where the talks took place through European intermediaries for the past four months.

That session never happened. International inspectors have been virtually blinded. At Iran’s major enrichment site at Natanz, centrifuges are spinning at supersonic speeds, beginning to enrich small amounts of nuclear fuel at near bomb-grade. Elsewhere, some uranium is being turned to metallic form — for medical purposes, the Iranians insist, although the technology is also useful for forming warheads.

The ponytail of ignorance wont read the truth of the matter but here it is -

Democrats were terrified lest Trump be identified with infrastructure spending, something that Democrats had seen as their own turf since the New Deal era. They want Americans to connect “middle-class” jobs with federal government spending, which means electing Democrats to spend ever-greater amounts of money.

That desire ran up against the left’s regulatory zeal, especially on environmental issues, which has stymied infrastructure spending on large scales

Trump wanted to get rid of red tape in the permitting for infrastructure projects. But he also had a bold, new idea that Democrats found even more threatening: using the private sector to drive investment.

In 2018, Trump proposed a $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan, only $200 billion of which would come from the federal government. After all, in areas like broadband, the private sector had already shown itself superior to government “net neutrality” in building out the grid.

Republicans controlled both houses of Congress. Theoretically, passing Trump’s infrastructure plan should have been a no-brainer. But the worst-kept secret in Washington is that Republicans are almost as addicted to federal spending as Democrats are. And Republicans in the House — and especially the Senate — were not about to endorse a new model for infrastructure that took money out of their control. Republicans soon lost the House, and a golden opportunity.

Today they are prepared, just three years later, to accept the terms Democrats are dictating to them — without a border wall; without the Keystone XL pipeline; and with just $110 billion devoted to “roads and bridges,” less than 10% of a $1.2 trillion compromise plan.

Infrastructure. The new term for bull shit.
"roads and bridges" - how much of that is for the demolition of freeways? I thought we already paid tax to DC for highway and bridge maintenance. What happened to that money?
And of course the wealthy need their charging stations on the way to their mountain villas.
Can you imagine Standard Oil having the fed govt paying for gas stations? Why don't we just charge the road tax at the charging stations per watt just as we charge per gallon at the pump?
And - once at their cozy digs in the middle of nowhere they need their 5g. Uncle Sugar, won't you oblige?
Where are the replacement jobs for the out-of-work pipeline workers.
Oh, they're in DC at the new cash disbursement centers. Sorry dirt diggers. Maybe go to Europe and work on Putin's garrotte on the EU.

Well lookie here their air filter and air security system didnt work -

Months ahead of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Wuhan National Biosafety Lab requested bids for major renovations to air safety and waste treatment systems in research facilities that had been operational for less than 2 years, according to a new congressional report on the pandemic’s origins, obtained by Fox News.

"Such a significant renovation so soon after the facility began operation appears unusual," said the report from the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s Republican staff. The projects for air disinfection, hazardous waste and central air conditioning systems "all raise questions about how well these systems were functioning in the months prior to the outbreak of COVID-19."

The true reason for the procurement posting is unclear, as is when or if the work was even initiated.

I agree with you on this one Don. It was Trumps pathetic lack of leadership and integrity that caused him to be such a miserable failure and become the biggest political loser in modern history.

punchy 940am

And deep state misuse of investigative powers (beginning with the "Crossfire Hurricane" start five years ago) had nothing to do with sabotaging the Trump presidency?

Don Bessee

What a blathering fool who obviously did not read the article and still ignores the separation of powers and who passes bills, hint the prez does not have a vote in that process. @940
Wallowing in ignorance and loving it.

I sure Emery can give plenty of examples on his claim of "pathetic"... Give it a Try O Buzzard.

Paul Emery

Gosh Don I was trying to reach out to you in agreement. It was all about Trumps pathetic leadership where he couldn't even win when he had control of the whole things.

Blame it on the Dems for Trumps poor leadership right Gregory?

Trump didn't become the biggest political loser on modern history for nothing.

Gregory

"Blame it on the Dems for Trumps poor leadership right Gregory?"


Blame goes to "the Dems" for wrongdoing of the dems, Punch.

Imagine had Richard Nixon actually weaponized the IRS, the FBI and the NSA/CIA against his opponents.

Hypocrites.

Walt

Can you get any vaguer Emery? I've seen mud clearer than that.
Best economy since Reagan was damned good leadership.
Spanking the NK fat kid was pretty good leadership.
Putting China in their place was damned good leadership.
Putting the breaks on illegal immigration was great leadership.

All that despite the RINO backstabbing and LIB NEOCom kangaroo
investigations.

And your hero the dotard fraud prez. managed to fuck it all up in 100 days.
(And Emery cheered)You do remember that,, right Emery?

So the ponytail of ignorance is a liar "I agree with you on this one Don."

Better economy that Reagan Walt? Who knows but it was a wreck by the time he left office and that's what he'll be judged by. Won't you agree Biden inherited a far worse economy from Trump than Trump did from Obama? It was like a horse race where your favorite gets off to a lead but fades to last place in the stretch. That's what lack of leadership does.

Now RR readers here's what next comes the predictable blame game from the Trumpsters that inhabit this blog. Here it comes....

Punchy, do you deny you were giddy about shutting down the economy after the pandemic started?

Why was that?

It was widely acknowledged by members of the Punchy Korps that the only way they were going to beat Trump was by using COVID to scuttle the economy!

I wouldn't agree to that Walt! Punch can repeat it again and again (I can only surmise that constantly repeating it helps Lil Punchy stand up better) but it hardly reflects reality. Always remember that Punch has always been little more than a progressive shock troop....mindlessly throwing himself of rhetorical grenades for the cause.

Anybody out there have any used masks? I am collecting as many as I can from the community before heading to the Sanctuary City by the Bay. Free pick up.

What’s a Greenie to do? To mask or not to mask? That is the question.

‘Nearly 1.6 billion disposable masks polluted oceans in 2020, will take 450 years to decompose’
Fifty-two billion masks were produced in 2020, and about 1.6 billion entered earth's oceans, according to a new report.

Its a disaster for creepy grampa joe and worse for us -

However, despite extremely low levels of deaths related to COVID-19, new data from the federal government suggests the economy grew at a much slower pace than expected in the second quarter of 2021.

Many analysts were predicting 8.5% growth, but a report from the Commerce Department estimated gross domestic product improved by just 6.5%, a 26% difference. The Commerce Department also slightly revised down its estimates for first-quarter GDP growth, from 6.4% to 6.3%.

According to Paul Ashworth, the chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, the economy’s disappointing performance is a strong sign that government "stimulus provided surprisingly little bang for its buck."

The economy’s relatively slow growth is a clear indicator that the Biden administration’s economic strategy of increasing employment through government welfare and stimulus programs isn’t working as expected—which should worry policymakers, considering that the Biden administration’s plans to improve economic growth in the future also rely on this same flawed thinking.

As concerning as the second quarter GDP numbers are, however, there are good reasons to believe that things could get much, much worse over the next year.

Perhaps the most important signal is that inflation has continued to drive up consumer prices. The annual growth of core personal consumption expenditures is now 3.4%, the most significant increase since 1992.

Further, the Labor Department reports that the consumer-price index increased in June by 5.4% compared to one year ago, the highest 12-month rate since August 2008. (It’s worth remembering that August 2008 was just one month prior to the start of the massive stock market crash of 2008.)

If interest rates were to increase, the housing market could be one of the industries that ends up getting hit the hardest. And if the past is a good indicator of the future, a crash in the housing market could drag the rest of the economy into the gutter along with it.

To avoid a potential economic catastrophe, the Biden administration and Congress should slash unnecessary government spending, a move that would help to slow inflation, as well eliminate COVID-19 programs that are discouraging millions of people from returning to work. In May, businesses reported there were nine million job openings in the United States, a record high level.

Unfortunately, the Biden administration and many in Congress are pushing to do the exact opposite. They want to continue programs that will discourage work, and instead of reducing spending, Biden and irresponsible members of Congress are calling for massive, costly new government programs.

By dramatically increasing government spending at a time when inflation is already a serious problem, the Biden administration and Congress would put the Federal Reserve in the very difficult position of having to choose between letting inflation run wild or imposing potentially jobs-killing interest rates hikes. Either way, American families would lose, and lose big.

The only hope of averting economic disaster is to put policies in place that would encourage, rather than discourage, able-bodied people to return to work, while reducing inflation-causing government spending programs.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as though the Biden administration is interested in pursuing either course.

It was Trump that shut down the economy. Don't you recall, he was President at the time and controlled the Senate.

Are you kidding me fish about comparing the '17 economy to the'21 economy. Show me the numbers to validate your insinuation that the '21 economy that Biden inherited was better than the '17 economy that Trump started out with.
