Media Covers Up Joe Biden Telling Black Mayors that Black ‘Parents Can’t Read or Write’

Last year, Democrat hopeful Joe Biden told a group of black mayors that black parents can’t read or write.

Last year, Democrat hopeful Joe Biden told a group of black mayors that black parents can’t read or write. Imagine if a Republican had said that regardless of any context!

Biden was speaking to a group of black mayors in Georgia in 2019, but the media only bothered to cover these remarks now, with Joe Biden’s campaign for president all but coming to an early end.

When the media thought Biden was a strong frontrunner to depose Donald Trump in 2020, the media was all hush-hush about this news. But now that Biden’s viability in on the downturn and the media understands that it needs to pump up another candidate, all of a sudden, the New York Times is FINALLY ready to report on Biden’s comments.

You can bet that if Biden was still a strong candidate, all this would have been hushed up.

Trending: Hilarious Fail: CNN’s Ratings CRASH During Coronavirus Pandemic

Per Business Insider:

The story, which detailed Biden’s precarious and unsteady positioning among South Carolina’s black voters after devastating losses in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, said that Biden’s literacy comment “shocked and frustrated many in the close-knit group.”

According to data on adult literacy from the National Center for Education Statistics from 2014, white Americans made up 33% of low-skilled adults, with Hispanic adults accounting for 35% of the group. That year, black Americans made up 23% of low-literacy adults.

In a statement to The Times, Biden’s campaign said, “The Vice President regularly talks about how his father’s experience has shaped the way he feels about and views the relationship between parents and their children’s learning.”

Again, imagine if a Republican had said that blacks can’t read or write?

Now, at some level, Biden has a point. Indeed, according to a 2009 study by the Department of Education, 50 percent of African Americans have a below average rate of literacy.

So, there is a great need for better educational opportunities for African Americans.

But the way Biden said it was in-artful, and, frankly, stupid. Good thing Biden is a Democrat, or he would have been buried a year ago when he said it!

Trump Maintains 51% Approval During Coronavirus Despite Media’s Constant Attacks

Trump is enjoying some of the highest approval ratings he has ever had during this coronavirus crisis despite the media’s daily attempt to destroy him.

Published

President Trump is enjoying some of the highest approval ratings he has ever had during this coronavirus crisis despite the media’s daily attempts to destroy him.

The latest Zogby Analytics survey finds the president with a 51 percent approval rating.

This rating is the number that analysts always say is needed for a politician to get re-elected. Those under 50 percent approval are often considered “underwater,” and unlikely to be re-elected.

The same poll also found his ratings improving among Millennials and black voters, too.

Still, even though few are ready to blame Trump for the coronavirus crisis, the poll did find that 52 percent disapprove of how Trump is handling the outbreak. 42 percent approve of his actions during the crisis.

However, this is pretty amazing since the media does nothing but tear down every move Trump makes concerning the coronavirus. The media attacks Trump every single hour of every single day, yet his ratings are not crashing at all.

“It might make the mainstream media and his detractors scream, but to his supporters and almost half the country, he is producing results,” Zogby said of the president’s actions over the last few months.

In fact, Zogby found Trump is winning respect for his work fighting the spread.

“He is also speaking honestly when he says we cannot stay in lockdown forever. It might not be what we ultimately do, or the right thing, but he’s being honest that life will have to go back to a semblance of normality in the future. It might not be reality but it’s comforting to some people in this moment of unpredictability,” he said.

The president’s numbers are rising among blacks, too. The survey added: “Trump’s numbers continue to improve with African American voters; his current job approval rating is 36% at least somewhat approve/63% at least somewhat disapprove.”

Here is the survey’s bottom line:

Despite cries that Donald Trump has not taken the coronavirus pandemic seriously, or waited too long to act swiftly before the virus spread, voters still believe he is doing a good job. He has shown a tremendous amount of energy during a difficult crisis. When it comes to President Trump certain things must be separated—primarily his personality, rhetoric and his actions. Can the argument be made the government wasn’t prepared, didn’t have the right amount of supplies, or was unable to come up with a sound plan to make available millions of test kits, the answer is yes! But at the same time, the president heeded the advice of his task force, worked with Congress to pass the biggest stimulus bill ever (The CARES Act), and provided aid to multiple states that were hit hardest by the crisis.

Hollywood Funnyman Blasts President Trump and Bernie Sanders in Same Interview

We didn’t see this one coming.

Published

on

Over the course of the last few decades, and coinciding with the advent of social media, we have discovered that the Hollywood ethos is fairly well entrenched on the left side of the aisle.

There are no shortage of ultra liberal Tinsel Town stars who are willing, nay, begging to grab some attention by way of their political opinions – despite the fact that a great majority of these actors and actresses have no governmental or community experience whatsoever.  They are in, instead, merely regurgitating and amplifying whatever opinions that sit well with them, after having been handed those opinions elsewhere online or via the cable news.

But, in a surprising twist this week, funnyman Larry David has taken to the media to not only insult the President, but to also throw shade at Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for not yet conceding the 2020 Democratic primary.

In a recent interview, Larry David bashed President Trump’s response to the coronavirus and called for 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders to drop out of the race.

The 72-year-old comedian poked fun at the two political rivals during a recent interview with The New York Times in which he was willing to share his unfiltered thoughts about the current political landscape amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“That’s the hardest thing about the day, watching what comes out of this guy’s mouth,” he said of the president’s daily press briefings on the coronavirus. “It turns you into a maniac because you’re yelling at the television. All of a sudden, you find yourself screaming, like I used to do on the streets of New York, pre-‘Seinfeld,’ when I saw happy couples on the street.”

Then came the surprising part:

Although he’s friendly with Sanders, he admits that he believes his 2020 candidacy has run its course.

“I feel he should drop out,” David said. “Because he’s too far behind. He can’t get the nomination. And I think, you know, it’s no time to fool around here. Everybody’s got to support Biden.”

Larry David has repeatedly appeared on television variety show Saturday Night Live to play the part of Sanders, making the recent comment all the more surreal.

Bernie Sanders Floats Conspiracy Theory: Trump Won’t Leave Office If He Loses

Camp Bernie’s pot of paranoia has spilled out into the mainstream this week.

Published

on

Bernie Sanders’ glut of young supporters don’t need much prodding to start looking for evidence of a conspiracy theory against the Vermont Senator, especially after their worst fears came true during the 2016 primary election.

In the aftermath of that particular contest it was discovered that Hillary Clinton had colluded with the DNC in order to essentially rig the primaries against Bernie.  This sin is something that the young Democratic voters aren’t likely to let slide, at least not anytime soon.

During this 2020 election, the Bernie Bros have been hyper-vigilant regarding the machinations of the Democratic Party, worried still that some plan is afoot to railroad the nomination back into the hands of the centrist establishment.  Back into the Dem’s deep state.

Now it appears as though Bernie is dabbling in conspiracy theories directly, but this time the nonsensical narrative involves the Commander in Chief.

From his appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher:

Sanders responded to a question from host Bill Maher on what he’ll do if President Trump won’t leave office if he loses by stating that you have to mobilize voters.

He added, “So, you know, what you’re describing is a nightmarish scenario with regard to democracy in America. Do I think you’re crazy and off-the-wall? I suspect not.”

This isn’t the first time that the mainstream media has aired this sort of speculation, as the tyrant trope simply plays better with fiction-obsessed members of the “resistance”.

Look Not to Sweden: A Pandemic Failure

From the mid 1930´s though to the early 1990´s, most Western nations planned to be self-sufficient in case of closed borders and wars.

Probably the worst, and most naïve, example is the Kingdom of Sweden. (more…)

Joe Biden Makes Wild Prediction About 2020 Democratic Convention

And what sort of wild ideas will this conjure among Bernie Sanders’ supporters?

Published

on

Believe it or not, there is still a 2020 presidential race happening, just below the surface of this smothering coronavirus monopoly on headlines.

As one would imagine, the race itself has been pretty quiet.  There are no physical rallies to attend or report on, given that the very nature of a rally is the anthesis to social distancing.  President Trump is getting his campaign messages across during his daily virus task force briefings.  He certainly isn’t hurting for exposure any way.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders has all but extinguished his campaign.  He is using his time and resources to spread information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic instead, effectively sealing Joe Biden’s reputation as the presumptive nominee.

But this virus crisis is far from over, and Sanders doesn’t plan on stepping aside anytime soon.  That’s why Joe Biden thinks that a drastic move may be coming from the DNC.

Former Vice President Joe Biden thinks that the date of the Democratic National Convention will be pushed back a month to August, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I doubt whether the Democratic Convention is going to be able to be held in mid-July, early July. I think it’s going to have to move into August,” the all-but-certain Democratic presidential nominee said Wednesday night in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

Biden pointed out that “even then, the Republican and Democratic Convention, we’re going to have to … we just have to be prepared for the alternative and the alternative.”

Supporters of Bernie Sanders will undoubtedly find some vast conspiracy hidden within this possible plan, further dividing the Democratic Party at a very crucial time in the election cycle.

Joe Biden Using Edited Podcasts to Hide His Worrisome Mental Lapses

This is getting to be a bit desperate, don’t you think?

Published

on

The Democratic Party is still trying to convince the nation that former Vice President Joe Biden is the chosen one, for some reason or another.

Never mind the fact that the most vocal demographics within the party itself are that of the younger generations who simply despise Biden and all that he stands for.  Not only is he an establishment figure if there ever was one, but he is now facing credible accusations of sexual assault from a former female staffer – something that certainly isn’t going to play well a great many liberal voters.

Then, to top it all off, Biden has been a mishap machine over the course of recent weeks, issuing gaffe after embarrassing gaffe, and throwing temper tantrums when confronted by town hall attendees, (back before the virus when we could have several dozen people in a room together).  The frequency of these blunders has become so alarming that Twitter has been filling with memes claiming the Biden is suffering from dementia.

Now, in an effort to conceal these linguistic lurches, Biden’s campaign team is employing a new tactic:  Prerecorded podcasts that allow for multiple takes and audio editing.

John Nolte over at Breitbart breaks it down rather succinctly, if not a bit dramatically:

So now we have been gifted with Joe’s “Here’s the Deal” podcasts, and it can be no accident that Joe’s retreated into the safety of a podcast; the safety of a platform where video of Joe’s hilariously disturbing (I’m so bad) brain freezes cannot go viral because there is no video; the safety of a format where Joe’s hilariously disturbing (I’m going to Hell) brain freezes can now be edited out because he’s hiding behind a platform that’s edited before it’s released; the safety of a format where we cannot see if Joe is reading a teleprompter or script.

Nevertheless, he still slurs and sounds exhausted.

Worse still, Hunter’s Dad does take “If you were president” questions from “real people” during the podcast, but the questions are pre-screened and recorded, which allows Joe to prepare for them.

Of course, much of the anti-Biden bickering could be coming from the depths of the Bernie Bros’ playoff, as they continue to tear the Democratic Party in two.

Biden Operative Accused of Stealing $1 Million from Union

A close ally of Joe Biden is accused of stealing $1 million from a union pension fund.

Published

on

A close ally of Joe Biden is accused of stealing $1 million from a union pension fund according to an internal probe published by the Washington Free Beacon.

According to the Beacon:

Harold Schaitberger, the president of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), which represents more than 300,000 firefighters, is facing accusations of corruption and gross financial malpractice from his closest deputies. Edward Kelly, the general secretary-treasurer and the number two of the union, detailed the findings of his team’s audit in a March 20 internal memorandum. According to the 105-page document, the audit has thus far found that Schaitberger and Thomas Miller—Kelly’s predecessor as the general secretary-treasurer—illegally earned millions of dollars from the union pension fund over the last two decades.

Kelly accused Schaitberger’s people of intentional obfuscation and purposefully bad record keeping to hide the theft.

Kelly’s audit also found that the union misreported millions of dollars in union funds while diverting millions of dollars for a purpose unrelated to their original designation. As a result of this rampant financial malpractice, roughly $6 million in union funds remain unaccounted for, according to the memorandum.

New Haven Fire Department battalion chief Frank Ricci is demanding a full investigation.

“If these allegations are proven true through the appropriate due process, Harold A. Schaitberger, General President, should be removed from office. Kelly talks about ‘turning over couches’ to find money, I think it’s time to turn over the couches and chase the rats out,” he told the Beacon.

Schaitberger is one of Biden’s longest labor allies and was the main force for the IAFF to endorse Biden for president.

The Biden ally earns $388,000 a year as a union leader, but he was also pulling in an additional $5,105 a month from the pension system. The additional amount seems to violate the union’s contract as well as federal pension laws.

The probe also accused Schaitberger of reaping millions in unearned pension benefits.
