Joe Biden lied about not wanting more money for prisons

Former Vice President and current Democratic nomination frontrunner Joe Biden is taking flack from all angles, including some that have supported his efforts in the recent past. They’re scrutinizing every word he says publicly and calling him out for inconsistencies. And after a very long career in politics that he’s trying to culminate by appealing to progressives, there are plenty of inconsistencies to highlight.

The latest is his claim that he is being improperly characterized for his role in passing the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, still the largest crime bill in American history.

“I didn’t support more money to build state prisons. I was against it. We should be building rehab centers and not prisons,” he said Saturday at a rally in South Carolina.

Except, he did support more money to build state prisons. The bill, which he helped write, authorized $9.7 billion in new funding for prisons. CNN called him out on it:

Biden expressed unequivocal support, in both 1994 and in the years following, for the law’s billions in funding to build state prisons, including in his home state of Delaware. He argued in 1994 that the law should include less money for prison construction than Republicans wanted to spend — but he emphasized that he too wanted to spend billions.

His campaign is trying to spin it as him saying he wanted less money in the bill for prisons than Republicans were requesting. This is almost certainly true, but the spirit of his statements regarding the bill do not match with the facts. He’s distancing himself from the bill rather than trying to justify his support. That’s a mistake. Instead, he should be saying the bill was a necessary fix at the time and he stands behind his view that rising crime rates needed to be addressed through stronger law enforcement presence and resources. He should be showing how the bill worked (which it did, to some extent) to change trends in crime rates. And if he wants to appeal to progressives today, he should then say the bill was the last required expansion to slow crime back then, but now he’s ready to walk it back to match current needs.

For some reason, his campaign is stuck in the middle trying to appeal to everyone. Instead, he needs to go straight into general election mode and assume he’s going to be the nominee, offering real policy proposals and countering the leftist lurch within his own party. I’m not one who likes giving advice to the Democrats, but it’s pitiful watching how ineptly his campaign is handling everything being thrown at him. This is how he loses the nomination.

It’s odd that someone so firmly planted at the top of the pack is struggling to drive the narrative. He’s reacting rather than going on the offensive, which seems to be indicative of the state of the Democratic Establishment today. The radicals rule them now.

Exposing the truth about Republicans

Which party founded the KKK, supported slavery, and opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote?

A recent video from Will Witt from PragerU exposes that people do not really know that much about the Republican and Democratic parties. The revelation of the facts of the matter shocked most of the people, showing that the government indoctrination system is woefully inadequate to educating the country. No matter how much money they waste.

Now that the Left is doing all they can to render the words racist and sexist meaningless, while numbing everyone to real crimes against certain minorities. It’s vitally important to correct the record on which political party began with the purpose of the abolition of slavery. The party that started the – and revived – the KKK and which party opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote.

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomas’s hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomass hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The President of the United States needs to be able to call out lies, especially when they’re told by people who may share ideological alignment. Republicans should be the first to call out Republicans when one of them is wrong, and Democrats should expect the same from their own ranks.

There’s another characteristic important for a president. They can’t be gullible, again with an emphasis on being gullible to stories coming from within one’s own tribe. There are too many false narratives in the world of American politics, so being able to see a blatant lie for what it is makes for an important presidential trait.

Georgia state representative Erica Thomas lied. She played the race card, turned it into an anti-Trump dog whistle, and then doubled down when confronted by her fellow Democrat she was trying to slander. But three Democratic candidates quickly backed her on her tall tale. None of them have retracted now that the truth is known. And no Democratic candidate has called her out for perpetrating another hate hoax.

There is real racism in America and it should be confronted. But the breathless rants of people desperately trying to emerge in the crowded Democratic field are often too quick to pass the wrong judgment when it suits their narrative. Such is the case for three reactionary and gullible candidates:

Bill de Blasio, Beto O’Rourke, and Julian Castro failed the jump-to-conclusions test, the see-through-the-lies test, and the make-everything-about-race test. It’s no surprise that their candidacies for president are failing or that they’re desperately attempting to pander to the African-American community by backing a false narrative. There was no racism involved in this incident, and most Americans had the sense to question the validity of Thomas’s outrageous claim. But in the world of Democrats who are stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, the only surprise is that fewer didn’t fall for it. Perhaps it was fortunate for them it happened over the weekend.

Hate hoaxers like Erica Thomas should be condemned, not embraced for their hatred. The three who were too gullible to see through her fabrications are not presidential nomination material.

The first Democratic candidate to call out Erica Thomas’s lies gets my endorsement for the party’s nomination. I still won’t vote for them next November, but at least they’ll stand out as the one honest person among two dozen race hoax enablers.

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

The Democratic election strategy for 2020 is still a work-in-progress, but that’s not stopping communist and socialist organizations from putting together voter mobilization efforts to stop President Trump from winning a second term. Their focus is on electing the Democratic nominee, whoever it may be. To do this, they are targeting reliable Democrats who normally do not vote.

Their targets are the south in states like Texas, Florida, and Arizona. Republican strategists are confident that the President will win reelection, but losing any of these states could ruin his chances.

This report by Gina Shakespeare at The Epoch Times breaks down the plans by the socialists and communists. If they are successful, a Democrat will be in the White House in 2021.
