The past weekend had a rather high body count.
Here are some facts about may not be extensively covered by the Main Stream Media—
All three cities are run by Democrats. El Paso has a Republican mayor, but almost every other state or local politician representing the City of El Paso or El Paso County is a Democrat. Mayors Nan Whaley (Dayton) and Lori Lightfoot (Chicago) are Democrats.
The Dayton shooter was a fan of Bernie and Fauxcahontas. And a gun control advocate.
The flow of victims from the multiple shootings in Chicago was so great that one hospital’s emergency room was overwhelmed and was forced to stop accepting patients.
The latest polling shows Joe Biden has a roughly 2-to-1 lead over over Bernie, about a 3-to-1 lead over Harris, and nearly a 4-to-1 lead over Fauxcahontas. It looks like the race is Biden’s to lose.
And I bet he will.
Tulsi Gabbard’s criticism of Kamala Harris’ record as a prosecutor during the “debate” last night was pointed and, it seems to me, effective. Rep. Gabbard’s own law enforcement background makes her comments all the more interesting to me.As can be seen from the crossed pistols insignia on her uniform, Major Gabbard’s branch of service is the Military Police.
I was working overtime on a new project last night, so I skipped watching the CNN-sponsored Democrat news event in Detroit last night. Now that I’ve read some of the coverage, it appears that I may have missed something interesting. One thing that stands out is which candidate generated the most Google searches during the debate.My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has been following the Williamson campaign since March. When he covered Williamson’s campaigning in South Carolina last March, he was the only national reporter on the story. If you’re not reading The Other McCain, you should be.
Donald Trump’s personal style is … well, it’s a bit rough around the edges for my personal tastes, but he’s been effective at framing the public dialog in was that no Republican political has for several decades. He’s got the Democrats defending their political leadership of cities like Baltimore. He’s got them defending Al Sharpton. It’s seems clear to me that he intends to stay one step ahead of the Democrats during the coming election cycle.
I’m buying more popcorn futures.
Victor Davis Hanson has a post over at American Greatness titled Would President Joe Biden Become 25th Amendment Material?.
Biden is only the most egregious example of the impending applicable double standard that progressives have crafted though their own unhinged effort to abort the Trump presidency. Knowingly or not, they have made the once normal—allow an incoming president to face the consequences of his policies in his first midterm election and ensuing reelection bid—into the taboo.
Apparently, Democrats never imagined that their own slate of candidates might, according to their own standards, have far greater liabilities than Trump himself. And as we are likely soon to see, and as Biden himself has darkly hinted, ol’ Joe’s sins may pale in comparison to those of his now acerbic rivals.
We are in new territory where nothing is sacred, nothing is a gaffe, nothing is just a slip of the tongue—given that any means necessary were long ago justified to achieve the end of ousting Trump. And those means are soon going to be applied to the very politicos who recalibrated and welcomed them—and Biden first, and most embarrassingly, of all.
Read the whole thing.
1. The clear loser was Fauxcahontas who appeared completely unprepared and wound up overshadowed by a bunch of third-string players.
2. The competition for most annoying candidate was intense, and I can’t decide who deserves that trophy.
3. Tulsi Gabbard was the least insane of the the bunch.
