Candace Owens Challenges Fact-Checker, And Wins

 Daily Wire

“I wanted to show that these fact-checkers just lie, and they usually go unchecked because most people don't have the money, don't have the time, and don't have the platform to go after them — and I have all three.”

"Conservative author and commentator Candace Owens challenged left-leaning fact-checking site PolitiFact, a partner with Facebook, over a “false” rating — and won.

"Not only did PolitiFact remove their “false” rating and retract an article on why Owens’ video was allegedly false, but the site offered an added “correction” admitting their fault.

"Owens’ video, which was posted on Nov. 12, offered commentary on the 2020 presidential election, and was captioned, “Joe Biden is literally and legally not the President-elect. So why is the media pretending he is?”

"The video was hit with a “false” rating, and, as noted by Owens, theoretically, every single person who shared the post was alerted by Facebook that they had shared “false” content.

“ 'Weeks ago, [Facebook] censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that [Joe Biden] is NOT the President-elect. So I got lawyers involved,” she said Saturday via Twitter. “Conclusion? [PolitiFact] uncensored the post & admitted that they LIED by rating my post false. The fact-checkers are lying for Democrats.”

"The note from PolitiFact reads as follows:

Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for Facebook. On Nov. 20, an appeal to that decision was made on behalf of Ms. Owens. PolitiFact approved the appeal on Nov. 20, determined that a correction was appropriate, and removed the false rating.

Biden Cabinet And Transition Picks Already Facing Serious Ethics Questions

"Considering the fact that the team Biden is building is filled with Obama-Biden administration retreads, it’s safe to predict that his pledge to run “the most ethically rigorous administration in American history” will be about as reliable and honest as Barack Obama’s promise to voters to run the most transparent presidential administration in American history – and we all remember how that turned out."

Legal Insurrection  "Back in late September, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s transition team was hailed by the mainstream media for releasing an ethics plan that, according to Politico, was “designed to make it harder for lobbyists to work on the transition effort.”

"The website also reported at the time that “the rules are broadly similar [to] those put in place by President Barack Obama’s transition team 12 years ago.” For example:

They “bar those who’ve worked as registered lobbyists or foreign agents in the past year from working on the transition unless” Jessica Hertz, the transition team’s general counsel, signs off on the arrangement. “They also forbid transition staffers from working on any ‘specific Transition matter’ that they’ve lobbied on in the past year or plan to lobby on in the coming year without Hertz’s approval.”

"An overview of the Biden transition team’s ethics plan document states that “the Plan aims to ensure that Transition team members abide by the highest ethical standards, act solely in furtherance of the public interest, and base all policy and personnel decisions on merit, free from individual conflicts of interest.”

"Just two months later, Biden is proceeding with the transition process even as the Trump campaign’s legal challenges are still playing out in the courts. But as the New York Times reportedSaturday, some of Biden’s picks “for top posts have done work for undisclosed corporate clients and aided a fund that invests in government contractors,” which is already prompting ethics concerns:

Letters to the Editor: The Big Biden Lie

Biden’s promos spew pure “pablum,” vague aspirations, obvious hypocrisy. Americans have reason to be afraid — of “affordable” universal health care, of socialism, of hypocrisy. To paraphrase another prominent Democrat, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, We actually have more to fear than fear itself.

The American Spectator  

"Lie Big or Go Home

"If I could vote in the upcoming election, I would most certainly vote for Donald Trump, just to stick it to all those free-speech-stifling people who identify as Democrats. I keep my mouth shut when I’m around these people, not just to avoid being shunned in the circles I travel in and by my own husband, but also because I’m a green card holder who doubts most American citizens would appreciate my perspective because I haven’t earned it.

"People automatically assume that Canadians abhor Donald Trump, and by and large they are right — although I suspect that he’s probably hugely, HUGELY popular in our version of America called Alberta and rural British Columbia, and many other rural provincial pockets. 

"Watching how easily Joe Biden was propelled to victory by the Democratic apparatchik and

realizing that the next president of the United States could be a woman who didn’t even break the glass ceiling on her way to the Resolute desk doesn’t sit well with my sense of ethics. It’s staged, contrived, deceitful (throw me some more adjectives). I admire authenticity.

"All the major news outlets don’t seem to have a problem with the Dems robbing people of legitimate choice. Lately I’ve started talking back to NPR while I drive around Florida’s Gulf Coast. I hear NPR hosts boasting about how their news outlet prides itself on including all views, and I’m shouting at the dashboard: “No you aren’t! How often do you even interview Republicans or non-academics? All you talk about is Black Lives Matter, the LGBTQ community, and COVID-19. You supercilious idiots think you’re smarter than everybody else!' ” . . .

Steal the House?

Power Line  "Paul notes below several razor-close House races, including especially Iowa 2, where the Republican candidate, Mariannette Miller-Meeks, is leading by six votes.

"Prediction: if Miller-Meeks is certified as the winner, House Democrats will refuse to seat her in January, so desperate are they to secure every possible House seat they can. Can they do this? Yes—because House Democrats have done this before. Back in 1984, in what became known as “Indiana’s bloody eighth.”

"This refers to Indiana’s 8th Congressional District, where, in the 1984 election, the Republican candidate, Richard McIntyre, who was challenging a Democrat incumbent, trailed narrowly on election night but was certified as the winner by 34 votes after a recount (and a second recount put him up by 400 votes). But the House Democratic majority refused to seat McIntyre in January 1985. Democrats voted to keep the seat vacant pending further “investigations” into the vote count. House Dems appointed a three-member select committee, consisting of two Democrats and one Republican, to look into it, and, citing “irregularities,” the full House voted on party lines in April to seat the Democrat incumbent, despite Indiana’s official certification of the Republican McIntyre as the winner. Democrats rejected Republican proposals to have a special election to settle the matter.

"It was a naked partisan power grab, wholly unnecessary given the large Democratic House majority at the time (238-177). Does anyone think Democrats won’t resort to this again, with a majority so tiny that they won’t be able to pass resolutions memorializing National Orange Juice Week?" . . .

Joe Biden Suffers Multiple Fractures to His Foot While Playing With His Dog

Earl of Taint

Townhall  "Biden's transition team revealed the former vice president suffered multiple hairline fractures to his foot after he reportedly slipped and fell while playing with one of his dogs on Saturday. The 78-year-old politician will likely need to wear an orthopedic walking boot for the next several weeks, according to his doctor.  .  

"While most politicians campaign intensely for the presidency, Biden largely avoided the campaign trail in what became known as the candidate's basement strategy.

"To ward of concerns over his physical health, the Biden campaign had the candidate ride a bicycle in front of reporters. Biden's fall should renew concerns over the candidate's physical health. 

"During the campaign trail, Biden also made a large number of bewildering statements, repeatedly lost his train of thought, forgot important details like where he was, what office he was running for, and confused his wife for his sister.

"If inaugurated, Biden will become the oldest president to be inaugurated in U.S. history." . . . 

Biden’s Injury From Falling While Playing With Dog More Serious Than Initially Thought

“Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden‘s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot,” O’Connor later said. “It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks.”

A former Andrew Cuomo aide writes that her ex-boss is an awful human being. Language warning

Andrea Widburg   "Even though New York governor Andrew Cuomo presided over the single largest number of COVID-19 deaths (mostly elderly people dying alone), the media was obsessed with his warmth, compassion, intelligence, and sexiness. Conservatives were unimpressed. Their view was just confirmed by a former aide claiming that Cuomo is mean, self-centered, and unprincipled.

"It’s almost certain that COVID-19 death statistics in America are wrong. However, if you accept them the way leftists do, the statistics for COVID-19 deaths in America show that New York state was America’s COVID-19 slaughterhouse. As of November 27, New York’s 34,443 deaths account for 21% of the total number of deaths in the ten states topping the American mortality list. It’s easy to blame Cuomo because he insisted on placing people diagnosed with COVID-19 in old age homes.

"Despite this track record, the media doted on Cuomo. He wrote a book boasting about his stewardship of New York and received a special Emmy for being an excellent spokesperson for his own wonderfulness. A singer named Randy Rainbow even put together a clever “cuomosexual” music video.

"Speaking of the “cuomosexual” theme, Alexis Grenell, Cuomo’s one-time aide, wrote a scathing piece at The Nation: “The Collapse of the Cuomosexual: St. Andrew of Covid, our savior of the spring, is now milking his 15 minutes of fame for an extra 30.” Her starting-point is a recent press conference during which Cuomo yelled at the media for daring to seek clarity about the state’s policies regarding school closures." . . .

Left's Power Is Pettiness


We have experienced how the Left acts when they lose by trashing everything in their path. In the end, those who learn from loss strengthen their character, and in so promote our common goals ... minus the pettiness and false pride.

"Where to begin...

"There's another Pandemic in our nation that has infected half of the population, it's called Pettiness-101. It's taught in nearly all of our institutions of higher learning. The great minds on the Left resort to it on nearly every issue known to get what they want. I call it Systemic Ignorance, it has become a prerequisite when applying for employment on Fake news networks, and many government institutions.  

"We now live in a world where nothing adds up and a vast swath of the population could care less. Just today with all the lawsuits, affidavits, and outright voter fraud, Twitter the mind of the mindless is telling us that "Voter Fraud of Any Kind is Exceedingly Rare in the US, Election Experts Confirm." Poorly educated employees make more mistakes, that's just common sense. Add to it lifetime employment through public union contracts and one can easily see why we are headed for a crack-up! Put simply as Obama stated, 'You didn't build that', and surrounding your life with expensive trinkets doesn't mean you're a genius. The hard work of creating the system of government we enjoy was given to us by smarter people than ourselves.

"So where have we gone wrong? 

"The Elite Billionaires believe they have your back by Inflaming, Slandering, and Canceling anyone that they disagree with. While the ever-bumbling Left continues to search for their next grievance against the Human Race. What confounds me are those who believe Fake news commentators who have perfected the use of dehumanizing tactics to deliver their message. Talking down to their own viewers who seem to relish in the drama we see playing out on our streets, neighborhoods, and workplace. I'm always amazed by the level of rancor I hear while in public places. The violent verbiage and threatening effects have now become the language of the Elites.

"So consumed with their own fake self-importance the Big Picture has been reduced to a handheld screen of Texts, Selfies, and Twitter. These are the children of the regressive-rrogressives. Petty, Petulant, and ever Whining, some with 5 o'clock shadows and varicose veins. 

"What's disconcerting is the level of dishonestly and bullying in regard to the corrupt tactics used by the Left to win an election by cheating.  No doubt they have decades of experience when dealing with the darker side of humanity's nature,. The proof is the frivolous lawsuits to change election laws through means not legislated only show the intent to corrupt. The lack of faith in our Constitution is disturbing. The willingness to break the rules only shows the weakness of character and self-belief." . . .

Head of Iran's nuke program assassinated

 Don Surber

"The Jerusalem Post reported, "The Head of Iran's nuclear program Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, 59, was assassinated in Damavand, east of Tehran, local Iranian news reported on Friday.

" 'Iran later confirmed the reports. 'The nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated today by terrorists,' the Iranian Defense Ministry wrote in a statement, while not blaming any specific entity for the incident.' "

"Arab nations are normalizing relations with Israel after a decade or so of casual and unofficial cooperation among Israel and Saudi Arabia. Obama siding with Iran -- giving the rogue state $170 billion to blow on building nukes and terrorizing Israel -- sealed the deal.

"Maybe Mossad had a little help.

"Israel and its Arab nations share two things in common. They cannot allow Iran to beef up, and they cannot trust the United States to help them. President Donald John Trump may be the last friend they ever have in the White House.

"They also know Red China is an ultimate threat." . . .

"Mr. Fakhrizadeh’s killing, whoever was responsible, could have broad implications for the incoming Biden administration. It is bound to set off a sharp reaction in Iran, as did the American attack on Jan. 3 that killed Qassim Suleimani, the Iranian major general who ran the elite Quds force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

"The killing of Mr. Fakhrizadeh could complicate the effort by President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. to revive the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, as he has pledged to do, if the Iranians agree to return to the limits detailed in the accord.

Keith Olbermann says out loud what the fascist left is thinking

Unfiltered Olbermann is a perfect complement for the left and their trained millennials,

Thomas Lifson   "When evil rages through large crowds of people, it has a hard time remaining silent. Those intent on furthering crimes of historic importance have a hard time keeping their mouths shut.  Usually, it is the peripheral players with the loosest lips, for they want to be part of what they see as a triumph over those they hate (hatred being the handmaiden of evil).  But sometimes, even those at the heart of darkness lose their normal restraints and say out loud what they are planning (13 second video).  Joe Biden's apparent dementia may have turned off his filter.

"Keith Olbermann never had much of a filter to begin with, and the loss of his former cable news platform seems to have unleashed his id even more than before.  Here he is on his YouTube platform, captured in a tweet by Ian Miles Cheong, laying out his desire for a totalitarian police state in which Donald Trump and his supporters, "flunkies," and "apologists" (by which he must mean me among many others) are imprisoned in such numbers that vast new prisons are necessary (hat tip: Fred T)."

Keith Olbermann Says Trump Should Face the Death Penalty for Each Coronavirus Death  
 . . . "On Tuesday, during an unhinged rant about President Trump and his response to the coronavirus, Olbermann said that the president should be given the “death penalty” for “each count” of the 220,000 Americans who have died from the virus." . . . 

"In addition to calling for Trump to receive 220,000 death penalties. Olbermann also called the president a “mentally incompetent, inhuman, dumb bastard.”

"This isn’t Olbermann’s first foray into crazed commentary and calls for legal action against conservatives. Nearly two weeks ago, Olbermann said that Trump supporters were “maggots” who should all be “prosecuted.' ”.

I'm sure he meant it all in a nice way.

Are we not capable of seeing what the Democrat Party has become?

How can we ever look Ukraine in the eye again?

Nearly one out five voters would change their vote for Biden  ...According to OAN One America News, a survey from the Media Research Institute found that 17% of Biden voters regretted their votes. Some 45% said they had never heard of the Biden scandals, ranging from the sexual assault allegations from legislative staffer Tara Read, to the evidence of selling influence to China and other rogue actors found in the abandoned laptop of Biden's son Hunter. In the OAN interview, MRC's Dan Gainor told OAN's John Hines that 9% of those Biden voters surveyed said they would have changed their votes based on the news of corruption allegations, which had been repressed on social media and ignored by most of the mainstream press. (MRC does not have a link to the survey that I can find).

"That's a significant number of people, nearly one out of five." . . .

And yet they smile!

With early voting, it didn't matter. Early votes meant less campaigning to worry about for Joe Biden, and enable Democrat ballot harvestors to concentrate pressure on those who didn't.

 Are the people ready to rise?

. . . "We know beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt that the election is in process of being stolen by the Democrats and their collaborators in the media, the tech platforms, the intelligence agencies, and a significant cadre of electoral officials, to crown an obvious loser, incompetent, and scoundrel as the ostensible winner.

"We know that voter disenfranchisement and tainted electoral protocols were epidemic.

"We know that only partisan Democrats, treacherous Republicans, professional liars, corrupt parasites and cronies, and low-information voters could have possibly cast legitimate ballots for Biden.

"We know that many people — like some of our acquaintances — simply refuse to believe that a theft on so massive a national scale could have occurred.  Nothing to see here, no need to protest.  They are the movers-on, who could drag the scandal to fruition.

"And we know, if the election swindle is not exposed and its results invalidated, that the United States as a constitutional republic will effectively cease to exist, replaced by a hegemonic socialist regime.

"But there is one issue on which we tend to disagree." . . .

The 'smartest man in the room' has joined Sidney Powell's team

Andrea Widburg  "In her Georgia complaint, Sidney Powell included the declaration of Navid Keshavarz-Nia, an expert witness who stated under oath that there was massive computer fraud in the 2020 election, all of it intended to secure a victory for Joe Biden.  Dr. Kershavarz-Nia's name may not mean a lot to you, but it's one of the weightiest names in the world when it comes to sniffing out cyber-security problems.

"We know how important Dr. Kershavarz-Nia is because, just two and a half months ago, the New York Times ran one of its Sunday long-form articles about a massive, multi-million-dollar fraud that a talented grifter ran against the American intelligence and military communities.  Dr. Kershavarz-Nia is one of the few people who comes off looking good:"

Image by Miguel Guanipa. added by TD.

"Although he had no access to the machines, Dr. Kershavarz has looked at available data about the election and the vote results.  Based on that information, he concluded

1. The counts in the disputed states (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia) show electronic manipulation.

2. The simultaneous decision in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia to pretend to halt counting votes was unprecedented and demonstrated a coordinated effort to collude toward desired results.

3. One to two percent of votes were forged in Biden's favor.

4. Optical scanners were set to accept unverified, un-validated ballots.

5. The scanners failed to keep records for audits, an outcome that must have been deliberately programmed.

6. The stolen cryptographic key, which applied to all voting systems, was used to alter vote counts.

7. The favorable votes pouring in after hours for Biden could not be accounted for by a Democrat preference for mailed in ballots.  They demonstrated manipulation.  For example, in Pennsylvania, it was physically impossible to feed 400,000 ballots into the machines within 2–3 hours.

8. Dominion used Chinese parts, and there's reason to believe that China, Venezuela, Cuba interfered in the election. . . .

Trump Lawyer, Jenna Ellis, Looks Media Dead in the Eyes and HAMMERS Them For Failing to Cover Voter Fraud

 Adrienne's Corner

Trump Lawyer, Jenna Ellis, Looks Media Dead in the Eyes and HAMMERS Them For Failing to Cover Voter Fraud

“For forms of government let fools contest —
That which is best administered is best,” —

Federalist Paper 68 – The Mode of Electing the President   
. . . The process of election affords a moral certainty, that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications. Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may alone suffice to elevate a man to the first honors in a single State; but it will require other talents, and a different kind of merit, to establish him in the esteem and confidence of the whole Union, or of so considerable a portion of it as would be necessary to make him a successful candidate for the distinguished office of President of the United States. It will not be too strong to say, that there will be a constant probability of seeing the station filled by characters pre-eminent for ability and virtue. And this will be thought no inconsiderable recommendation of the Constitution, by those who are able to estimate the share which the executive in every government must necessarily have in its good or ill administration. Though we cannot acquiesce in the political heresy of the poet who says:" . . .

Media’s suppression of key stories likely gave Biden election win, study finds

"Democratic candidate Joe Biden likely won the presidency not based on any particular policies but because the media refused to cover several key stories and issues, according to a new analysis.

"A survey of 1,750 Biden voters in Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, Nevada, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania — all but one, North Carolina, called for the former vice president — conducted on behalf of the Media Research Center asked respondents what they knew about eight issues or stories MRC believes were not sufficiently covered by the press.

"Of those surveyed, 17 percent said they would not have cast their ballot for Biden if they had known about at least one of the underrepresented stories.

"The eight issues selected by the MRC were:

— Sexual assault allegations against Biden dating back to the early 1990s by then-Senate aide Tara Reade;

— Allegations of corruption involving son Hunter Biden, that included possible kickbacks to the former vice president;

— Sen. Kamala Harris’ extreme left-wing views on several issues;

— How the economy snapped back quickly from the recession caused by widespread mandatory business closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic;

— Historic peace deals the Trump administration forged between Israel and a number of Arab neighbors;

— U.S. energy independence under President Trump, which resulted in the country becoming a net oil exporter for the first time;

— The success of “Operation Warp Speed” to quickly get a coronavirus vaccine to market.

 "According to the survey, 82 percent of Biden’s voters were not aware of at least one of those issues.

"Regarding Reade’s allegations of sexual assault, 35.4 percent of respondents said they were not aware of them. Meanwhile, 8.9 percent said had they been they would have either voted for President Donald Trump, a third-party candidate, no presidential candidate or would not have voted at all. MRC-aligned NewsBusters said this issue alone had the potential to flip Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin to President Trump."


Detroit Lions and Houston Texans Quarterbacks Kneel During Anthem to Show Their Disgust for America on Thanksgiving Day

 The Gateway Pundit  "Thanksgiving Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the blessings of the past year.

"But not everyone is grateful to be from the United States of America.

"Professional athletes in the US are now cheerleaders in anti-American hate.'They kneel down for the US Anthem out of pure hatred for the country of their birth.

"The Detroit Lions traditionally play a game every Thanksgiving Day.  This is an American tradition."

Round 2 of the Great Trump War Sets the Stage for Round 3

Whatever Biden does, if Trump plays it right, he is the future, not the past. Barring a Damascene conversion to more civilized times, Biden and his managers are caretaking placeholders, and Trump retains the tremendous momentum he has built for a new Republican coalition.

 Conrad Black

"Whatever Biden does, if Trump plays it right, he is the future, not the past."

"The Great Trump War is approaching the end of round two. The president predicted the abuse of unsolicited mass-mailed ballots and ballot harvesting, but did not put an adequate legal team in place on the ground in time with the necessary resources to combat it. He is not blameless in the incoherence and disorganization of this blizzard of uncoordinated lawsuits his counsel have mounted, or in the ambiguity of the status and implausibility of the claims advanced by the estimable Sidney Powell. 

"The president’s move on Monday to begin accommodation of the transition activities of the Biden camp indicates that he has moved in time to maintain his legitimate allegations of election skulduggery while also providing a reasonable facsimile of a philosophical acceptance of the likely fact of Biden’s election, though not of its impeccable legitimacy. This will enable him to maintain the rage of his scores of millions of ardent supporters, who constitute by far the greatest block of followers of any current American political leader—easily surpassing Obama, who has backtracked in his latest memoir to false racialization (the last refuge of contemporary American political scoundrels), and the Clintons, whose prestige is crumbling every week, the faded Bushes, who were never stem-winders even in the best of times, and certainly Joe Biden, caretaker for an historical intermission.

"All the Trump-haters’ claims that he would unleash his followers’ violence if he did not win the election have vanished down the same sewer as the prophecies of impending Russian election interference and the postmaster general’s evanescently infamous voter suppression (a complete fiction). " . . .

Barack Obama Forgets That He Put Immigrants in Cages, Attacks Trump Over Policy

 Barack Obama Forgets That He Put Immigrants in Cages, Attacks Trump Over Policy

. . . "Of course, the first thing I should point out is that Obama is once again repeating the lie that Trump made racist comments about Mexicans. Joe Biden and others typically claim that Trump called all Mexicans “rapists” and “criminals,” which he did not and 
it’s easy to prove that he did not.

"But what really got me was when he said Trump “puts undocumented workers in cages.”

"Umm, really? Did Obama actually go there? Remember when Joe Biden attacked Trump for putting immigrant children in cages during the campaign? During the second debate, President Trump responded to this attack by repeatedly asking Biden: “Who built the cages?”

"Of course, Biden didn’t answer the question, for the same reason Obama would have been best not to even bring up the cages, because Barack Obama and Joe Biden built the cages.

"Back in June 2019, Barack Obama’s former ICE chief, Thomas Homan, acknowledged at a conference hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies that the “cages” blamed on Trump were the product of the Obama administration. “I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages. That facility was built under President Obama under (Homeland Security) Secretary Jeh Johnson. I was there because I was there when it was built,” Homan said."

Biden climate envoy John Kerry is a lifelong joke

NY Post  "What was Joe Biden thinking for his choice of climate-change ambassador extraordinaire? John Kerry is one of the biggest gasbags in American politics, singlehandedly responsible for massive amounts of terrible emissions.

"People have been laughing at him since Yale, when “Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau was zinging his pretentious, vacuous self-promotion.

"We look forward to the anti-carbon lectures from a guy who travels the globe on private jets and luxury yachts.

"Set aside his deer-in-the-headlights loss as the Democrats’ presidential nominee in 2004. He was a joke as secretary of state under President Barack Obama — off on his yacht during Egypt’s 2013 military coup.

"He vowed a crushing response when Syria crossed Obama’s infamous “red line” — only to have Obama pull the rug out from under him and agree to let Russia pretend to take Syria’s chemical weapons away instead.

"Kerry also cluelessly “negotiated” the Iran nuclear deal even as the real talks were being run out of the White House; then he had to pretend to cheer an accord that gave away several points he’d said were non-negotiable, such as truly tough inspection requirements.

"And he helped craft the 2015 Paris climate accord — a performative non-binding “triumph.”

"The Kerry-initiated Israeli-Palestinian peace talks of 2013-14 went absolutely nowhere. He later blasted President Trump over moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, insisting it would cause “an absolute explosion” — when it actually helped bring unprecedented Arab-Israeli rapprochement.

"The only conclusion you can draw is that Biden, having vowed to make fighting climate change a top priority, simply wants someone who’ll look like he’s trying hard — but won’t actually get anything done."

My Response to an Olive Branch from Alyssa Milano


“‘I remember you. You were the one glaring at Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his hearings. You were the one that called conservatives every name in the book and didn't sensor your words in the least. No way you'd be offering an olive branch had your party lost ... How about NO,’ one person reacted.

She knows a great camera position

"Among the many Hollywood celebrities who hotly opposed Donald Trump, Alyssa Milano has been one of the most consistent. Now, as she believes that the election of Joe Biden is a 
fait accompli, she is offering an olive branch. How should we respond?" . . .

"Not surprisingly, the responses to her olive branch were mixed.

"Fox News reported that, “Trump supporters were quick to react to Milano's offering on Monday, and a majority did not meet her with kind words in return. Several balked at the star's approach, calling it a ‘joke’ after her several outcries for Trump to be ripped from office.

. . . “3 questions for you: 

“1) For what past comments can you now apologize? 

“2) Can you have a civil conversation with pro-life Christians? 

“3) Would you have accepted an olive branch from Trump supporters Nov 2016?”

. . . "As for my three questions, let’s say Biden wanted to make peace with Trump. He would have to apologize for laying the blame for more than 200,000 COVID deaths at Trump’s feet. Conversely, Trump would have to apologize for exaggerated or false charges against Biden.

Then the writer discusses at more length each of the questions he posed.....

David Limbaugh: Democrats Want Unity Only on Their Terms  . . . "Trump's opponents -- the media, Democrats, never-Trump Republicans -- have never given him a moment's rest, never a benefit of the doubt, never an atom of cooperation or bipartisanship. They haven't just served as the loyal opposition, resisting his agenda like the minority party is expected to do. They have never let him govern. From the time he stepped on the political stage, they've harassed, investigated, bullied, impeached and censored him.

"The media has tormented Trump, ignored and distorted his accomplishments, and shown him in a 100% negative light for his entire term. Never in my lifetime have I seen such one-sided coverage." ..

.I've never believed that this incessant hatred toward Trump was just about Trump. The left has villainized every Republican president in recent memory and, for several generations, has defamed all Republicans as heartless bigots.

. . . "It is the Democrats (and their policies) who are divisive. Through rank identity politics, they stir people against one another on the basis of their skin color, gender, and economic circumstances. Republicans aspire to racial colorblindness and an end to the manufactured tension over gender politics." . . .

[Simply put,] Obama Is a Jerk, and It Comes Through With Every Media Appearance


Because I have ignored Obama since he left the presidential stage, I had forgotten how demeaning he could be to people he dislikes or doesn’t understand. He attempts to sound reasonable, but his contempt bleeds through like a leaky pen on white silk.

"I find it fascinating that former President Obama chose this moment in time to write and publish his book, Promised Land. He could have had it released a year before the elections, or a year from now, once another administration had been settled. Instead, he decided to ride the coattails of the election, as though he had won another term, and capitalize on someone else’s momentum.

"Obama the 2008 candidate came off as likable, but that was clearly an act. Obama the 44th President and Obama post-presidency is an insufferable jerk who doesn’t know when to leave the stage.

"My colleague Nick Arama said it perfectly,

“I have to admit that one of the great things about the Trump Administration is that Barack Obama is no longer president.

“Now while it’s fair that as a Democrat, he would have policy that I would likely disagree with and yes, want to fight against, often what was most infuriating about Obama was his utter pretense and gall, claiming to be against division while completely cutting people up or siccing his administration on them behind the scenes.

“He was always praised by media for being so smooth. But they mistook ‘smooth’ for caring, rather than simply being smooth, deceitful and huge narcissist.”

"Big time. It doesn’t help that the Democrat Party keeps calling him back, like a

talisman. Obama could refuse, but narcissist that he is, he can’t ignore the siren song of attention. It’s not like he and Michelle aren’t busy making left-leaning, poorly produced Netflix fodder. In fact, he made a big deal that he wanted to stay out of this election (yeah, right). But… <sigh> the party… and Joe Biden needed him, so he made the ultimate sacrifice <sigh> and came back on the stage.

"As my colleague, Scott Hounsell, says, “Excuse me while I call BS.”  .  .  .

Obama wrong again

Well, the bit about putting "undocumented workers" in cages is a bit strange coming from the man who built those cages and was given the nickname "deporter in chief."

The Morning Briefing: Barack Obama Hates Joe Biden, the Truth, and Man Jeans

The disrespect for Joe Biden here is hard to deny, and it’s classic Obama. He begins to fade from existence if he goes more than five minutes without anyone paying attention to him. Since it’s RACIST to deny him, he knows he can just snap his fingers and get the cameras turned back on him. Obama obviously knew that his turn as the belle of the post-election Attention Whore Ball could potentially shove Grandpa Gropes into the background at a time when he should be enjoying his greatest triumph.

. . . "I don’t really care that he’s crapping all over Biden, I’m just pointing it out as a reminder of how awful he is.

"Not that Obama himself isn’t busy reminding us that he’s a terrible human being." 

After Four Years of Democrat Attacks on Trump Supporters, Biden Can’t “Unify” the Nation

 Legal Insurrection

“only 3% of Trump voters surveyed said they accept Biden’s victory as legitimate”

"If Joe Biden is sworn in as president in January, he is going to have a serious problem on his hands. No one on the right has forgotten the relentless attacks of the last four years. Calls for unity are going to fall on deaf ears.

"Millions of Americans don’t even view Joe Biden as the legitimate winner of the election.

"Jacob Pramuk writes at CNBC:

Almost no Trump voters consider Biden the legitimate 2020 election winner

Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. Nearly every supporter of President Donald Trump thinks otherwise, according to a new CNBC/Change Research poll.

As the president makes unsubstantiated claims about electoral malfeasance and sows doubts about vote tallies, only 3% of Trump voters surveyed said they accept Biden’s victory as legitimate, the survey released Monday found. A staggering 73% of respondents consider Trump the legitimate winner. Another 24% said they are not sure.

A mere 3% of Trump voters believe he should concede to Biden and start the peaceful transfer of power. Another 31% want the president to fight in court until states certify results. Two-thirds, or 66%, think Trump should never concede.

"This part is especially funny:

But the poll underscores the potentially bigger harm Trump’s lies about the vote tallies have done to public faith in the electoral process. The president appears to have convinced many of his supporters he lost unfairly, even as state officials and judges have repeatedly shot down claims of fraud and wrongdoing.

"Trump supporters don’t lack faith in the electoral process because Trump told them to. This is happening because people have common sense and know something is not right when multiple states cease counting votes in the middle of the night.

"Trump supporters have been physically attacked and called bigots, and worse by Democrats and their media allies for four years, but now are expected to act like nothing happened." . . .

Reminder: In 2016 Democrats Threatened and Harassed Members of Electoral College to Stop Trump

Legal Insurrection

“I’ve had people talk about putting a bullet in the back of my mouth.”

"As we watch Democrats and their many friends in media melt down over Trump’s challenges to the 2020 election over alleged voter fraud, it’s important to remember where we were four years ago after Trump’s surprise 2016 victory.

"Not only were Democrats claiming that Russia stole the election for Trump, they harassed members of the Electoral College in a last ditch effort to prevent Trump from being certified as the winner.

"In December of 2016, Mark Moore reported at the New York Post:

Electors are being harassed, threatened in bid to stop Trump

Electors around the country are being harassed with a barrage of emails, phone calls and letters — and even death threats — in an effort to block Donald Trump from being voted in as president by the Electoral College on Monday.

The bullying is overwhelming Sharon Geise’s tech devices, but not her resolve to support Trump.

The Mesa, Arizona, grandmother woke up Wednesday morning to more than 1,500 emails demanding she not carry out her legal duty to vote for the president-elect.

“They just keep coming and coming,” Geise told The Post, estimating she’s received more than 50,000 emails since the election. “They’re overpowering my iPad.”…

Reports of GOP electors being badgered have been reported in numerous states, including Georgia, Idaho, Tennessee, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.

Like Geise, Republican Patricia Allen of Tennessee told The Post she’s been bombarded with 2,000 emails, 120 letters and five phone calls all urging her to switch and vote against Trump. But Allen, 74, said that despite the “siege,” she’s not budging.

"One elector told CNN he was getting death threats: . . ."
