Biden Is Proud of His Inflation Rates

    Of all the things to be proud of Biden has hitched his wagon to some interesting ones. A cocaine-addicted, and ‘miraculously’ not dishonorably discharged son in Hunter; numerous failed racist policies he now opposes; and to top it all off, now he’s so proud of his inflation?

    Speaking at the Port of Baltimore, Biden was beaming with pride at what he has done and seems to revel in the attention from this inflation. “Did you ever think you’d be paying this much for a gallon of gas? In some parts of California, they’re paying $4.50 a gallon… Everything from a gallon of gas to a loaf of bread costs more…People are feeling it. They’re feeling it.” God with that last sound bite alone I think he’s ready to start spinning records in Las Vegas at some casino pool.

    This tone of pride in an issue that is crippling many Americans financially is disgusting, to say the least. It’s almost as if Biden is living in backward land or some other equally unrealistic place. Yet here we are with him beaming with pride over destroying the American economy and the dreams of many of the American people. Despite this, Biden showed small and minor touches with reality (I know, it’s weird to say ‘Biden’, ‘minor’, and ‘touching’ in the same sentence without it being about his pedophilia ways).

    “It’s worrisome even though wages are going up… Thanks to the steps we’re taking, very soon we’re going to see the supply chain start catching up with demand,” he said. “So not only will we see more record-breaking job growth, we’ll see lower prices, faster deliveries as well”. These small bits of sound bites give a small hope that maybe he can get fully emerged back into reality and get things going in the right direction.

    One thing is for certain; the more time he spends in la-la land, the more the people fail to trust him or anything he says. His delusions of grandeur and success are incredibly troublesome as the more he believes them and preaches them, the more empowered the left becomes by them. As if a failed economy is a sign that he was what we needed all along, or maybe they’ll blame Trump since so many think the President’s efforts aren’t seen till 4 years after they leave office. Either way, this is a problem.

    As hi good buddy Pete Buttigieg is still on the sidelines and doing little to nothing for our infrastructure, we are finding ourselves slipping further and further away from being the success story we once were. Prices go up, wages stay the same or go down, and the dollar comes up even shorter than the day before. This is the reality we are finding ourselves in, and no matter how proud Biden is of it, this is not good. The longer the tailspin continues to spiral, the worse we become as a nation.

    So what can we do to pull him back into reality? Perhaps it’s time for him to have a sit down with some real Americans. No TV cameras to pander to, no politicians to score points with, no agendas to push. He would need to listen to their stories and help figure out answers to the problems. Since this is a problem with his economy, perhaps he can explain how the American people could do more to ‘feel it’, since most of us are hating it.

    New York Mayor Resorts to Bribery to Get Kids to Vaccinate

      The Democrats all over America are salivating the money extravaganza that they are going to get from Biden’s infrastructure bill. Many have already dreamt of the ways they can push woke philosophy while at the same time spending money that has yet to be printed. But of all the excitement and false hopes they are living through, nothing takes the cake more than watching Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York, bribe kids to get vaccinated.

      The selfish mayor is taking to the streets and bribing kids with $100 bills if they would be willing to step in line and get a shot in the arm. He is using the holidays to get kids ages 5 to 11 to get a shot in the arm at their school or a clinic run by the city. They cannot go to their doctor; it has to be at his location.

      The media outlets The City NYC and Chalkbeat reported that “New York City is extending its $100 vaccine incentive to young children getting vaccinated at school sites or city-run clinics, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday.”

      There was not one mention of having the parents take the child. De Blasio spoke directly to the young kids and offered them $100 to sneak into a line and get a shot.

      The Democrats do not believe that parents should have the right to tell their kids what to do with their health. They feel that it should be left up to the federal government to dictate what the young person should do.

      BREAKING NEW$: Kids ages 5-11 are eligible to get the $100 vaccine incentive when they get the #COVID19 vaccine at a City-run site!

      — Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) November 4, 2021

      The kids are also being bribed with tickets to special events. De Blasio mentions the family when it comes to keeping them safe. But he does not mention that parents have the right to decide what is best for their kids.

      The mayor stated that “We really want kids to take advantage, families to take advantage of that. Everyone can use a little more money around the holidays, but more importantly, we want our kids and families to be safe.” But to get the money, the kids have to do it at a location dictated by the socialist mayor.

      The silence of the bribe is what is concerning to many people. No one is claiming that mask can come off if people get the shot. It is not like a Democrat to give up one demand to achieve a goal. They want power and will not let people breathe fresh air just because they complied once.

      All of de Blasio’s minions are out in public pushing the idea, and Dr. Jay Varma is one of those minions. She stated, “The reality is we all want, as public health professionals, to also go back to the day that we and our children don’t have to wear masks and feel the way they did before the pandemic.”

      The reality is not the same, and people do not want to give up their right to choose. Even Dr. Dave Chokshi, who is Biden’s Health Department Commissioner, has pushed the notion that the kids are the infection of society. He went on to praise the bribe as a means to keep kids safe. The virus never hit the kids, and it will never be the nasty bug they think will work with the younger generation.

      The vaccine is now being offered to grade school children. For some reason, the need to force the juice into the kids is high with the liberals. There has been zero data released as to the effects the shot will have on the younger generation. People want to believe that it is safe, but with all the horrible effects on the adult population, there is a lot of skepticism of whether it is the right time for kids or not.

      The pushy Democrats are willing to sacrifice the health and safety of the younger generation to strip freedom away. The nasty mayor is resorting to bribery to get their kids to beg their parents to take them to a city clinic for the shot. And for that reason alone, the offer needs to be boycotted and the mayor arrested for trying to bribe a minor.

      ‘Racism Built Into the Roadways’ That’s what Buttigieg is Dealing with as America Struggles Under Historic Supply Chain Crisis

        Did the transportation secretary really say he was going to “deconstruct roads”? Well, the answer to that is yes and no, both better and worse than that idea. Let me expand: As many of you likely know, the Transportation Secretary is former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and to say that he’s progressive would be like saying that the Pope is religious.

        As if he didn’t make enough waves when he took off after he and his husband adopted a child for paternal leave (which is a great thing, unless the weight of the nation’s food supplies depend on you doing your job) and the crisis of cargo ships being unable to reach their goods to distribute them to the American people. It’s been a growing problem, and the question is, what is the government going to do about it?

        If we look at the situation from a standpoint of entirely discounting the possibility of anyone in government wanting Americans to suffer, assuming there’s not a master plan to suppress anyone into submission, and just assume that those working in the White House are misguided but good in spirit, it’s still a crippling level of naivety that would allow someone like Buttigieg to think that he would be concerned about racism in roadways rather than the weakening dollar, the rising crisis of supply shortage and how to fix the emergency amongst truck drivers.

        So, it’s with a suspect attitude and injured heart that Americans have been reading reports, like this one out of the Independent Journal Review that the Biden administration’s transportation secretary is working on a plan to “deconstruct” racism that was “built into” roadways.

        During a press briefing on Monday, the White House correspondent for The Grio, April Ryan, put a question to Buttigieg about how the administration planned to deal with this apparently growing problem of “racism” amongst the pavement groupings of America:

        “Can you give us the construct of how you will deconstruct the racism that was built into roadways that you talked to The Grio [about] earlier when you broke that information with us? Can you talk to us about how that will be deconstructed?”

        The transportation secretary responded saying that “at least 40 percent of the clean investments in this [infrastructure] bill will go to benefit the communities that are overburdened and underserved,” seeming to indicate that the racism was about where roads were being kept up well, versus where they were run down (as best I can positively translate the comment).

        “So Part One of that is defining those investments that are eligible, and that’s a lot of it, and we’re working to map out kind of program by program, mode by mode what would qualify. For example, if we’re buying clean buses, how do we make sure where those buses go?” He added, “I’m still surprised that some people were surprised when I pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the purpose of dividing a White and a Black neighborhood or if an underpass was constructed such that a bus carrying mostly Black and Puerto Rican kids to a beach, or that would have been, in New York was designed too low for it to pass by, that that obviously reflects racism that went into those design choices.”

        But does Buttigege really think there is racism, “built-in” the American roadway system? Who knows. The next comments he made were about as confusing as listening to Biden talk off the cuff.

        Reporter @AprilDRyan to @PeteButtigieg: “Can you give us the construct of how you will deconstruct the racism that was built into the roadways? … Can you talk to us about how that could be deconstructed?” pic.twitter.com/FXXEq5tuQL

        However, as a quick reminder, if you look up the definition of racism you get three options:

        The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
        Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
        The belief that each race has distinct and intrinsic attributes.

        It is as yet unclear how pavement rises to the level of any of that. But I guess there’s still a lot we have to learn about how inherently racist things like dirt and concrete are.

        Cartoonish Pelosi Is Laughed at by People Who Know She Is Lying

          0

          Nancy Pelosi is just a mouth to promote the nastiness of the socialism sweeping through the Democratic Party. For several decades she has had to bite her tongue to remain in power. But now that passionate socialists surround her; she is more willing to pollute the air with her words of insanity.

          Most of the things that she speaks are full of lies. The facts never line up, and sources fail to materialize. Lying to the American people never works out well for the person caught telling the proverbial fib. Her lying tongue is part of the poison pool that is damaging the country at its very foundations.

          Joe Biden’s Build Back Better nonsense was a ruse that he campaigned with to make people vote for him. And when his vote count fell short, he had it planned out that mysterious ballots would be used to pad his fake fan base with.

          The Democrats were able to cram through the $1.75 trillion bills that have been contested for months by several members of each party. The Democrats are fractured over their bills but have duped some Republicans into agreeing with their spending habits.

          The “social spending” bill got Nancy Pelosi into a bit of trouble as she tried to pass off apparent lies about it. Her claims were so ridiculous that many people in the House busted out laughing at the very thought of what she claimed about the bill.

          She stated, “It will be one of the most significant legislative undertakings that any of us have ever been part of.”

          .@RepBryanSteil (R-WI) and other House Republicans told Breitbart News that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is using the House Committee on Economic Disparity to advocate for socialist policies. https://t.co/46rB35f7cD

          — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) November 4, 2021

          That part may be genuine in her foiled mind since the Democrats have never done much for America. But she would make claims about the bill that would cause many to laugh out loud and cause her to scream at them.

          The old gal mustered the lie and stated that “So if you’re talking about how we want to have immediate and enduring difference for the workers and families, creating jobs, securing middle-class tax cuts, lowering costs for families, and making the wealthiest pay their fair share, all the while contributing to reducing the national debt.”

          People already pay their fair share of taxes and for her to insinuate that people do not pay enough is typical socialist thinking. And yet, the humorous part of the bill was that she tried to show that spending insane amounts of money would somehow pay down the nation’s debt.

          It was at that moment that the laughter started.

          People started snickering, which led the old girl to state, “Did I hear a laugh over there? Did I hear a laugh from those who added $2 trillion in tax cuts for the richest people in America, 83% of it going to the top 1%? This is paid for and more than paid for.”

          She admitted that the Republicans were the ones that dropped taxes which in turn created growth and helped reduce the amount of money needing to be borrowed to run the country.

          RedState reported on the facts of what Pelosi was trying to claim.

          They reported that “a new study from the prestigious Wharton School of Business destroyed Biden’s nonsensical claim that Build Back Better would not only cost ‘zero dollars’ to America’s taxpayers but also that ‘zero dollars’ would be added to the national debt as a result of BBB. Pelosi’s claims, then — that BBB will ‘contribute to reducing the national debt,’ and second claim that BBB ‘is paid for and more than paid for’ — constitute a demonstrable bald-faced lie.”

          The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania will reportedly issue a study Wednesday that reveals President Joe Biden’s reconciliation package will not be free, although the White House has claimed it would cost “zero” dollars. https://t.co/1CB02gFTzd

          In typical Democratic fashion, the only thing Nancy Pelosi could do was attack those that were exposing her lies. She had to yell at people laughing at her bald-faced lies. She could not admit that what she was presenting was nothing short of fake news.

          Joe Biden can only look like a hero if people lie about him. The nation already sees the hypocrisy of the Democrats, and it is a matter of time before voters kick them out of their beloved offices.

          Biden Blames COVID and OPEC for High Prices

            President Biden spoke to reporters from the latest meeting of the climate change warriors (COP26), and he was asked specifically about inflation and rising prices. Instead of accepting even some blame for the problems, Joe did what he does best – passed the buck.

            “First of all, a significant reason prices are up, is because of COVID affecting the supply chain. I know you know this…If you take a look at gas prices and you take a look at oil prices that’s a consequence of thus far the refusal of Russia or the OPEC nations to pump more oil. We’ll see what happens on that score sooner than later.”

            — Disclose.tv (@disclosetv) November 2, 2021

            The supply chain fault is a poor excuse. We have hundreds if not thousands of ships waiting to come into port. We lack the people to move these supplies. In some areas, we are lacking truckers, in other areas we lack dock workers.

            A large chunk of this is due to COVID vaccine mandates and people not wanting to work inherently dangerous positions for low wages. COVID has proven how necessary they are, and they want fair compensation for their work. Not really a foreign concept here Joe.

            The blame on Russia and OPEC is laughable. The U.S. has more than enough capacity to produce more oil and to use more of our own resources, instead, Joe and the rest of the left have been vilifying oil production from our own shores. It is illogical and irresponsible to blame other countries for problems we can fix ourselves.

            That’s what happens when you give over control of oil to foreign nations instead of remaining energy independent! Goodness, this man is dumb. https://t.co/fBnRvYrf9p

            Under Trump, we had a booming oil industry, and we were even selling oil to other nations. This meant we were doing what is best for business and in turn the American consumer.

            Yet at every turn, Biden and his cronies want someone else to fix the problems.

            Biden begs other countries to increase oil output
            He destroyed energy independence

            Biden talks abt being competitive in the Green Energy
            While knowing China is the manufacture of solar panels made

            This passing the responsibility on to someone else has made America weak. We have been a nation that could always count on its people to do the right thing. To help out when things went wrong, yet now we find ourselves stuck in a situation where the people who control how we can help are saying ‘no’.

            One of the biggest mistakes was killing off the Keystone pipeline. This cost the state of Alaska thousands of jobs, and thereby killing off massive levels of oil production. The prohibition of drilling on federal lands, and the untold actions of the EPA under his watch have all contributed to these sky-high prices and the supply problems.

            The problem with inflation is how the money is spent.

            Prices for goods and services go up. The prices for utilities and rent also go up. Yet the money coming in remains the same, or in some cases even goes down as hours are cut.

            At a tipping point, it becomes almost impossible to reverse and to lower prices back to reasonable levels. Going the direction Biden is leading the country, this point may be coming much sooner than we expect.

            However, if Biden will finally make the tough decisions America can still fix things. Enlist the National Guard and some active-duty transportation units to help lower the congestion at ports.

            We have service members who are trained in crane operation, semi-truck driving, and logistics. They could be working the ports and running supplies across the roads.

            This would lower the congestion and get the backlog of stacked crates out of shipping yards. It would also give service members true on-the-job experience many employers look at when they get out (many employers refuse to see the Military as real ‘experience’).

            We can also turn oil and gas prices around by simply increasing production and releasing some of our strategic reserves. Quite simply lowering the dependence on foreign oil lowers the global prices, and gets American consumer costs to go down. Again, another area the military could be of use.

            AOC Calls DNC’s Proposed Course Correction ‘Dangerous’ in Brutal Post-Election Comments

              Danger: It’s what most of us live our lives attempting to avoid. So when someone says something is “dangerous,” it typically merits at least a cursory investigation to see if there really is potential harm at stake.

              That is, unless one of the most dramatic 30-something women you’ve ever heard says it. If that’s the case, it’s likely just another desperate cry for validation that will end with her yelling if you don’t absolutely agree with her on everything and you wasting your time and her.

              And for once, I’m not even talking about conservatives and liberals, this is just regular old Democrats attempting to save their sinking ship while New York socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is drilling holes, insisting that the fish need air so they can breathe.

              After last Tuesday’s firm throttling that Democrats got in key election areas, such as the Virginia gubernatorial race and the Minneapolis Police Department presentation, the more reasonable of the DNC (if that’s even a thing) took to the cable news channels to talk about how they could win back some of their voters.

              Strategists like James Carville said that the far-leftist progressives drug the party so far to the left that they were unable to relate to that coveted 20 percent in the middle of the road, and instead of signing on to an entirely new way of life that has proven over and over again to bring only pain and unhappiness to every culture it touched, they slid slightly right, just enough to hand Republicans nationwide wins.

              “What went wrong is this stupid wokeness,” Carville said. “Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis. Even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean, this defund the police lunacy, this taking Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools, that — people see that.”

              “And it’s just — really have a suppressive effect all across the country to Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a woke detox center or something. They’re expressing language that people just don’t use. And there’s a backlash and a frustration at that,” he continued. “Who could even think of something that stupid? And they’re suppressing our vote,” he said of the far progressive theory concluded. “And I have got news for you. You’re hurting the party. You’re hurting the very people that you want to help.”

              And with both Republican and Democratic leaders pronouncing before the election that it would likely set the tone for both 2022 and 2024, it was a tough hit for the DNC, so, as intelligent people often do, they decided to amend their strategy. But in classic dictator fashion, the alt-left said that the problem was they weren’t hard enough on freedom.

              AOC took to social media, essentially saying that their mistake was whipping with whips instead of whipping with scorpions. The progressive New York rep said that saying the Democrat Party has a “woke problem” is a “dangerous way to think.

              Ocasio-Cortez’s initial response to Carville’s came on Friday when she said that “wokeness” was a term “almost exclusively used by older people these days.”

              “Like the average audience for people seriously using the word ‘woke’ in a 2021 political discussion are James Carville and Fox News pundits, so that should tell you all you need to know,” she claimed. “And before people disingenuously complain ‘woke’ is denigrating to older people, it’s actually pundits like Carville using terms like ‘woke’ to insult voters under 45 that’s denigrating.”

              One dangerous aspect of thinking there’s a “woke problem” is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights.

              But it didn’t end there, the infamous AOC said on Sunday that it was “One dangerous aspect of thinking there’s a ‘woke problem’ is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights. Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely, ensuring losses.”

              People think Fox News is just about indoctrinating right-wingers, but it’s also about conditioning Dems on what to run away from. Framing racial justice as “controversial” is key to delaying the protection of voting rights (& others) until it’s too late. We shouldn’t indulge it.

              — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 8, 2021

              She did not, however, offer any evidence to support this theory. She concluded, “People think Fox News is just about indoctrinating right-wingers, but it’s also about conditioning Dems on what to run away from. Framing racial justice as ‘controversial’ is key to delaying the protection of voting rights (& others) until it’s too late. We shouldn’t indulge it.”

              Xi Jinping Eyes a Third Term to Rule Communist China

                0

                Xi Jinping has been ruling the Chinese Communist Party for the past two terms. And, as we all know, communism is about control. So, why stop with just two terms? He’s clearly got his eye on the future as he’s planning on setting the stage to seek out a third term.

                In 2018, China got rid of term limits. It is what would allow Jinping to seek out a third term and continue to rule China. If this sounds familiar at all, it’s similar to what Vladimir Putin did in Russia.

                Term limits are for democracies. Russia proved that they wanted to keep the power and now China is doing the same thing.

                A closed-door meeting with those ruling the Chinese Communist Party will be taking place. It’s known as the sixth plenum. The goal is to produce a resolution on the party’s history, which is designed to shape politics for decades to come.

                This sixth plenum is the last of the meetings for the five-year political cycle. And, it’s already believed that Xi Jinping will be seeking a third term.

                What’s on the agenda for this meeting? That’s top secret. The discussions and resolutions won’t be released until after the meeting has finished.

                One thing we do know is that Jinping has been looking at the “major achievements and historical experience” of the CCP in its 100-year history, as reported by the state news agency.

                According to Dali Yang, a China expert from the University of Chicago, “The 1945 resolution affirmed Mao’s leadership in the CCP, and the 1981 resolution was about turning a new page from the decade-long destructive chaos of Cultural Revolution Mao created. This year’s resolution will be somewhere in between – the party’s past and Xi’s future.”

                What’s interesting is that China looks at its past as part of the way that it shapes its future. Additionally, resolutions made within the plenum will also determine how Chinese history is depicted and taught to students in schools. This is where Jinping’s authority comes in – and all of his policies will be viewed as successful.

                Basically, regardless of what China may have done poorly, the plenum is a chance to rewrite history. Jinping gets to come off as the hero since he’s the one writing it.

                Communism at its best, right?

                As the relationships with the U.S. and other western countries deteriorate, we have to ask ourselves what kind of future China wants to have.

                Anthony Saich, a professor at Harvard University, explained, “Internationally, we will continue to see China playing an assertive role; domestically, we’ll see anti-corruption, addressing inequality and tackling environmental degradation [still] as the party’s priorities.”

                Assuming Jinping actually gets the third term as expected, it means that we’ll continue to see an emphasis on purging political enemies, cracking down on minority groups, and pushing “morality and ethics” on society.

                Reiterating the principle established by Mao Zedong that “the Party commands the gun,” Xi Jinping has demanded the military be combat-ready. He also boarded China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier. What else did Xi do in this regard? Read: https://t.co/cr8e45TvE8 pic.twitter.com/6JuqQFZTw7

                With the Biden administration constantly borrowing strategies from both Russia and China, it wouldn’t surprise us in the least if they tried to abolish presidential terms. Can you imagine Biden for not just one more term but two more? Considering he’s managed to destroy so much in only 10 months of office, it’s terrifying to imagine what he might do with 10 years in office.

                Meanwhile, we’ll have to prepare for dealing with Xi Jinping for the possibility of at least another five years…and that may mean that we’re not going to be reaching any amicable agreements in the near future.

                Turns Out, People Really Like the Police, Tell Politicians What to Do with ‘Defund the Police’ Movement

                  Calling the police when you’re in trouble is what you do. And it’s not a racial issue, though that’s what the liberals want you to believe. If we listened exclusively to the liberal media, we would think that Black people don’t call the cops because they are afraid of being racially profiled.

                  It’s simply not true.

                  In Minneapolis, you hear a lot of people calling to defund the police. We’re not talking about police reform. We’re talking about fully abolishing the police entirely. And, Ilhan Omar, one of the House Representatives who were voted by the people to listen to the people is one of the people pushing the issue the hardest.

                  Only, she’s not listening to the people. If she stopped to listen, she’d hear that most voters are rejecting the idea of replacing the city’s police department with a public safety force.

                  The measure was proposing that the Minneapolis City Charter eliminate the existing police department. Instead, it would be replaced by a Department of Public Safety. It would offer “public safety functions through a comprehensive public health approach.”

                  This sounds like an accident waiting to happen, and that’s what many residents think, too.

                  Minneapolis resident Wynn Wever said, “I like the police. We need the police.” Another resident said that it would be “unwise” to defund the police.

                  If the residents like the police, why is there such a push to get rid of them?

                  Well, there are progressives like Ilhan Omar and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison who believe that it would be better to have public safety officials. Then, people won’t have to get arrested. There won’t be the need for jails or prisons.

                  However, the problem with this is unrealistic. Omar and Ellison are operating on a false belief that all people are inherently good. They believe that the only reason that people are bad is that they have been victimized by the police.

                  This simply isn’t true. Some people will commit crimes regardless of race and regardless of how the police treat them. And having a public safety official come out to the scene of a crime is not the same as having a police officer come out.

                  Crime has already been skyrocketing throughout Minneapolis because criminals are taking advantage of the situation. And if the police departments go away entirely, the crime will only continue to worsen.

                  Omar wants to get everyone riled up with the reminder that she tweeted: “Let’s remember what got us here: the Minneapolis Police Department killed a man, George Floyd, in broad daylight.”

                  Let’s remember what got us here: the Minneapolis Police Department killed a man, George Floyd, in broad daylight.

                  This is another part of the problem.

                  She wants to turn a man who had a long roster of crimes into a hero. The reason that the police were even dealing with Floyd that day is that he held a pregnant woman at gunpoint. He was a criminal. While he didn’t deserve to die, he did deserve to be arrested – and abolishing the police department isn’t going to change that fact.

                  If Minneapolis (and so many other liberal cities) are going to heal, reform is needed…not abolishment. If the liberals would get off of their soapboxes long enough to listen to the people, they would know that – and every city in the U.S. would be safer as a result of it.

                  NASCAR President Goes Woke Condemning ‘Let’s Go, Brandon’ Slogan and Threatening Lawsuits

                    Steve Phelps, the president of NASCAR, is now threatening to sue anyone who uses the “Let’s Go, Brandon” slogan on any merchandise featuring the NASCAR’s trademarks. He has publicly condemned the use of the slogan and claimed that NASCAR does not want to be associated with politics.

                    According to The Associated Press, Phelps has said that NASCAR will pursue action against any illegal use of their trademark on all merchandise that uses the popular slogan.

                    Just this week, retired baseball star Lenny Dykstra posted a photo on Twitter of a man eating breakfast at a New Jersey hotel while wearing a black “Let’s go, Brandon” shirt that was emblazoned with NASCAR’s trademarked color bars.

                    A key member of #TeamNails was pleased to see this just a few min ago at a Holiday Inn Express in Passaic County, NJ (as, it seemed, was everyone else eating there) #LetsGoBrandon #FuckJoeBiden @GETTRofficial @alliesinger @I_AmMelissa_ @DolansBar @DonaldJTrumpJr @JasonMillerinDC pic.twitter.com/nD46Jtn7B8

                    Phelps said, “We will pursue whoever (is using logos) and get that stuff. That’s not OK. It’s not OK that you’re using our trademarks illegally, regardless of whether we agree with what the position is.”

                    The slogan in question started last month at a NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.  NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast was interviewing driver Brandon Brown after he won the race. While the interview was taking place, the crowd in the stands was chanting, “F*** Joe Biden.” But Stavast claimed that they were chanting “Let’s go, Brandon.”

                    The slogan has since become code for “F*** Joe Biden” and is being used at sporting events and some other locations.

                    Phelps said that he feels for Brandon. “I think unfortunately it speaks to the state of where we are as a country. We do not want to associate ourselves with politics, the Left or the Right. We obviously have and we’ve always had, as a sport, tremendous respect for the office of the president — no matter who is sitting,” Phelps said.

                    He continued saying that he did not like the fact that this slogan started with a NASCAR race and then carried momentum elsewhere. Phelps said that they would continue to make sure that NASCAR maintained respect for the office of the president.

                    This move to condemn the use of the chant and the decision to keep NASCAR out of politics comes after they embraced some leftist social justice causes last year and this year. In February, The Associated Press reported that as the season began with the Daytona 500, there was a new era of social consciousness that has enveloped the sport. They reported that NASCAR was committed to these issues for the long haul. Steve Phelps even cited a brand tracking study by Directions Research that found that 1,750 self-identified “avid NASCAR fans” overwhelmingly supported the sanctioning body’s stance on social justice in 2020.

                    Phelps has later maintained that what NASCAR does in the areas of social justice and diversity equity inclusion is going to be authentic to who they are. Even if it wasn’t the right thing for the NBA, it was going to be right for NASCAR. When the question was asked if social justice is something a sport should do, Phelps answered “yes,” and gave permission to do it.

                    Phelps is not alone on the “Let’s Go, Brandon” issue. In the last 24 hours, a former Clinton administration press secretary equated people who say “Let’s Go, Brandon” with ISIS members. And ex-CBS News anchor Dan Rather warned the phrase may lead to “violence.”

                    NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian wrote that gun dealers are marketing weapon parts and ammunition using the right-wing slogan. He also said that he called the Secret Service about this situation. He asked the Secret Service whether they consider “F—Joe Biden” emblazoned on an assault rifle to represent a security threat to the president. They did not respond.

                    Biden Returns From Europe Speechless After Democrats Fail

                      Despite his initial thoughts that Virginia would remain blue, Biden found himself yet again on the losing side of history as Virginia was swept by Republicans.

                      In a historic election, Glenn Youngkin defeated the strongly Biden-backed Terry McAuliffe. Given Biden’s “We’re gonna win… I think we’re going to win in Virginia,” mindset, they just couldn’t achieve the modest task they were given.

                      As is fitting in any leftist defeat, Biden remained silent about why they lost and ducking reporters’ questions after his 1:38 am return to Andrews Air Force Base; just hours after the Republicans declared victory. This could be seen as a sign of frustration with voters not trusting his endorsements, or possibly even his own inability to comprehend such a loss.

                      It certainly was shocking to many who have not been paying attention to this race.

                      Like many others across the country, those running on the most ‘progressive’ platforms have largely found themselves on the losing end of the stick. The loss by McAuliffe is a devastating one for the Democrats after Biden defeated Trump by 10 points just one year ago.

                      The flip-flop in the votes for the biggest race of the year in Virginia is one of the most influential flips in this special election year.

                      Virginia also re-elected each Republican running for the House of Representatives and flipped 5 of those seats back to red from blue. This puts the house much closer to a 50-50 split, and may even give Republicans a slight edge as other states are trickling in. Additionally, Winsome Sears became the lieutenant governor to complete the trifecta of flips.

                      With Biden remaining silent upon arrival, it is a far cry from his confidence while in Scotland. While at a press conference in Glasgow, Biden openly discussed how much impact he thought his own success or failure would play in the election.

                      “I’ve not seen any evidence that whether or not I am doing well or poorly, whether or not I’ve got my agenda passed or not, is going to have any real impact on win or lose.”

                      Unfortunately for Biden, he fails to see things the way Virginians or most Americans do. If the person at the top of the heap (the President) is doing poorly, people expect his party to continue to do poorly as well. If they are making nonsensical decisions and spouting off with random comments that have nothing to do with what is being asked, they associate that with the people below them.

                      It’s almost as if he was never given the age-old adage ‘you are charged by the company you keep’. This would have served him as well as many Democrats looked to him, Ilhan Omar, Kamala Harris, and AOC for endorsements. Even in states or districts that are not their own.

                      The problem with looking to people like these is their progressive politics don’t play well in many areas of the country.

                      As much as they love to clamor for the rights and advancement of people in urban areas, they largely forget the rural voter; John Everyman if you will. Everyman won’t care about making things better for people in the inner city while his crops go unsold due to a glut of foreign grown materials; they won’t care about the city when it means money is being diverted from their small rural school districts.

                      They instead begin to distrust and turn their backs on them in favor of some who show any love for their small area of the world. Even if they just think a candidate cares about them, it’ll influence their decision.

                      Virginia is a state with a lot of rural areas, and these voters came out to say ‘no’ to Joe. Anyone aligned with him got it too. That’s politics… that’s life.
