Gun-Wielding Protesters Point Weapons At Motorists, Indianapolis Leaders Stay Silent

In Indianapolis, Black Lives Matter protesters pointed guns at a motorist in an attempt to stop cars from driving on the streets during a demonstration. Indianapolis leaders, including Democrat Mayor Joe Hogsett and the Indianapolis City-County Council have remained silent.

Other parts of the video show protesters blocking traffic and throwing water on cars. You can see the guns being pointed at the blue pick-up truck at the :35 second mark. The video is from the Indy Star.

Biden’s Mental State Is Just One Thing Midwest Voters Are Concerned About

America is now debating, in earnest, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s mental state. It is obvious to both political junkies and casual observers on both sides of the aisle that Biden is not all together there. And, heading into a potential debate showdown with President Donald Trump, many wonder if he is up to the task. Democrats have openly questioned whether debates are necessary, or suggested Biden put conditions on debating. Translation: Joe Biden should not debate Donald Trump, because Joe Biden can’t be trusted on a debate stage.

CNNers like Brian Stelter are claiming that this is all a right-wing media dustup that is “far from campaign reality:”

How wrong Stelter is. (Again!) This is far more than a beltway-esqe campaign issue. Biden’s mental state, and mental issues, are a big deal to voters across the nation. But is it the only issue voters have with Biden, as was asked on Twitter?

Oh, no. When you start getting into that list, Biden’s verbal stumbles and mental lapses might be the least of the concerns for Midwest and fence-sitting voters.

Five Reasons Biden Delayed His VP Choice

Let the conspiracy theories fly! Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden did not announce his VP pick on August 1st. As reported by the New York Post, he will be delaying a week. Why? Here’s five possible reasons:

1- A Decision Has Not Been Made

This is the most far-fetched possibility. The vetting has been going on for months, so an extra week just isn’t necessary. We know the shortlist: Former NSA Susan Rice, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms, Florida Rep. Val Demmings and California Sen. Kamala Harris. (No, my friends, Michelle Obama was never on the VP list.) The idea that one more week will let the campaign know who will best help them win Florida and Pennsylvania is very unlikely. The idea that the campaign hasn’t solidified around one of these choices is possible, but not probable. This isn’t the reason for the delay.

2- They Don’t Want To Interrupt The News Cycle

The Biden Team might think that this news cycle is advantageous to them, and they don’t want it to stop just yet. Perhaps they see value in pointing to President Trump’s tweets on delaying the election, which has given cable news untold minutes of hyperventilation. Or maybe they see value in media’s and their own untrue attacks on federal officers as “stormtroopers” who are “kidnapping” American citizens. Or pushing how everything in Portland and Seattle was “peaceful” until law enforcement showed up (tell that to Horace Lorenzo Anderson!) If they think this line of attack is doing damage to Trump, and influencing fence-sitting voters, they may want to let that narrative grow.

3 – Biden Will Not Be The Candidate

If Biden Doesn’t Debate, Biden Loses The MidWest…and the Election

It was the commentary of author Thomas Friedman that got me asking if this is a legitimate tactic: could the Biden Team seriously be considering the idea that they could keep presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden off the debate stage? Could they really keep him from debating President Donald Trump going into November?

Nevermind that failing to debate Trump will cost Biden the election, Freidman’s idea was farcical, as are many of the things now written in the New York Times (like the 1619 Project, which its author now admits is a flight of fancy.) Friedman wrote:

First, Biden should declare that he will take part in a debate only if Trump releases his tax returns for 2016 through 2018. Biden has already done so, and they are on his website. Trump must, too. No more gifting Trump something he can attack while hiding his own questionable finances.

And second, Biden should insist that a real-time fact-checking team approved by both candidates be hired by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates — and that 10 minutes before the scheduled conclusion of the debate this team report on any misleading statements, phony numbers or outright lies either candidate had uttered. That way no one in that massive television audience can go away easily misled.

Tax returns? The Supreme Court has already ruled on this. Twice. Besides, no one who is fence-sitting on this race cares about tax returns (though, if we can also see Hunter Biden’s returns, maybe this could get really interesting!) As to his second point? Ok! Fact check away! But does Freidman not understand the double-edged sword of immediate fact checking? Has he never heard Joe Biden speak? Or, more accurately, fail to speak?

Today’s Inaccurate Polling: The Secret Trump Voter is Not A Secret

A recent Fox News poll shows presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden with an eight point lead over President Donald Trump in the general election. As with any poll taken in a pandemic, panic-gripped world, the results should be taken with massive grains of both salt and narrative.

A Fox News poll on the presidential race.

The Real Clear Politics polling average has shown Biden ahead for months. In the month of July alone, Biden’s lead has fluctuated between +3 and +15. But for what reason would anyone trust the polling? It’s as if four years ago never happened, when, at this time in the race, then Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had, what we were told, was a commanding lead.

Of the 25 polls recorded in the month of July, Hillary led in 19 of them. Of the weekend just past (7/17-7/19,) Trump led one by +1 and Hillary led one by +4. In the week that followed, Trump led in four different polls, from between +1 to +7. By the end of July, 2019, Hillary was leading in the polls by +8 and +9. Media never looked past the polls to check their validity or understand the people who took them; they simply pushed the narrative. Hillary to victory!

And that was without a virus that has become so horrifically politicized that any rational-thinking American should be disgusted. California has returned to shutdowns, pushing down the economy that has looked forward to resurgence. Politicos have put unions over parents and students, demanding schools not re-open, or be only virtual; to be clear, multiple Democrats have proudly used school-aged children as a weapon to be wielded against Trump’s election chances. And media has deliberately played along in this fear-mongering about schools.

Biden is Angry with Trump’s Rose Garden Press Conference because it Hurt Him in the Midwest

The Biden team is furious with President Trump for going at the former VP during an address in the Rose Garden. Members of the media, the pundit class and the Woke Blue-Checks are all screaming that it was a campaign speech, and therefore a violation of the Hatch Act. What they are really upset about is that Trump showed Biden as weak on China, and the Midwest might take notice.

On China, Biden started his campaign by saying they were nothing to worry about. During a campaign rally in 2019, Biden noted:

China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man…they can’t even figure out how to deal with the fact that they have this great division between the China Sea and the mountains in the east, I mean in the west.

As author and pundit Gordon Chang rightly noted, “He’s absolutely incorrect…one can argue that China doesn’t pose for instance a robust challenge to the US, we can argue that we will prevail. But to say as the vice president said that they’re no competition to the US is just inexplicable.”

Trump argued that Biden’s positions on the environment have been not only expensive, but a “gift” to China:

As vice president, Biden was a leading advocate of the Paris climate accord, which was unbelievably expensive to our country…It would have crushed American manufacturers while allowing China to pollute the atmosphere with impunity, yet one more gift from Biden to the Chinese Communist Party.

Trump then lumped Biden in with former President Barack Obama:

So Joe Biden and President Obama freely allowed China to pillage our factories, plunder our communities and steal our most precious secrets,” Trump said, adding, “I’ve stopped it largely.’”

Of course, the media pundits came to Biden’s rescue, lambasting the President for having a “political rally” instead of a press conference.

“Soiled.” He actually said “soiled.”

Biden’s people tried to respond by being too cute by half:

…but there was one topic that President Trump couldn’t seem to get off his mind: Joe Biden, whose name the President invoked nearly 30 times. The whole sad affair says more about Donald Trump than he said about any particular topic.

They quickly changed their tune when they realized the damage the Rose Garden presser had done. They now argue that President Trump should reimburse taxpayers for using the press conference as a campaign rally! From Biden spokesperson Katie Bedingfield:

What we heard in the Rose Garden today wasn’t a president at all. It was a politician who sees his re-election slipping away from him and who is furious that his own botched response to the coronavirus pandemic has denied him the campaign events he so craves…The American taxpayer should be reimbursed for the abuse of funds this spectacle represented.

It’s already clear to Americans across the Midwest – in must-win states like Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio – that Biden (or his team) are afraid of debating President Trump. They know, like Biden’s team knows, that the odds of the former Vice-President to be able to handle a 90-minute debate without debilitating gaffes – or worse! – are very small. But for Trump to remind Midwest Mainstreet of Biden’s weakness on China, and foreign policy as a whole, is damaging to Biden’s spurious claim that he can rebuild the economy; especially as trade and manufacturing become of even more importance in a world financially damaged by coronavirus.

Trump may avoid the Rose Garden for a while, but the damage to Biden is already done.

Support Goya and Free Speech with the #GOYA1K – UPDATES

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, actor and playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda and numerous other “woke” folk want to boycott Goya Foods because their CEO, Robert Unanue, attended a Hispanic Prosperity event at the White House where he spoke well of President Donald Trump.

Some people hate Trump so much that they threw their Goya products in the trash. This is madness! We have lots of Americans hurting financially because of coronavirus shutdowns who could use that food. And Ocasio-Cortez pushing #CancelCulture on Goya because they didn’t act they way she wanted is despicable.

So, Tony decided it was time to have the #GOYA1K. It’s not a foot race, it’s how you can help your town donate 1,000 cans of Goya products to a local food bank. Take a photo of your donation, and post it online with #GOYA1K. Stand up for free speech and free thought, and help people while you do it. Check out the video below, and share everywhere!

NOTE: Turns out Tony was not alone. Radio host Mike Opelka had the same idea, and posted it on Twitter last week. And check out this guy, who raised $100,000 to buy Goya products!

KATZ on FOX: AOC Wants To Boycott Goya, and Media Silence on Jackson antiSemitism

Tony Katz joined Leland Vittert on Fox News to discuss Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY,) actor Lin-Manuel Miranda and others pushing for a boycott of Goya Foods because the CEO, Robert Unanue, attended a White House event on Hispanic prosperity and said of President Trump, “We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.”

Ocasio-Cortez left no doubt that she wants to lead the latest Cancel Culture attack:

Tony Katz Talks To Dana Perino about Joe Biden’s Buy America Speech

Tony spoke with Dana Perino and progressive Christopher Hahn about Joe Biden’s new found love for buying American products first. But how does Biden think he can bring manufacturing to the US if Biden takes his marching orders from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders?

Then, when the conversation moved to China, Tony had to remind Christopher that we don’t do things the way Europeans do, because we’re not Europeans…and that’s a good thing.

DeSean Jackson was wrong for his antiSemitic posts, but the Eagles Should Not Fire Him

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson posted vile antiSemitic and bigoted statements on his Instagram account, as well as showering praise on long-time bigot Louis Farrakhan.

I’m Jewish, in case you didn’t know. And I don’t think he should be fired:

Jackson was wrong. Farrakhan is disgusting, and quoting Hitler is just beyond low. Jackson has apologized, saying he has no hate for Jewish people, and has spoken with the team ownership about the issue. Both team owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman are Jewish.

The Eagles are more than justified in firing him for violating the team’s, or the NFL’s, code of conduct. However, I favor ending Cancel Culture. And to do so, we actually have to end it.
