Trump and Biden Come to Minnesota [Updated]

Featured image In a historic first, President Trump and Joe Biden both visited Minnesota today. Biden went to Hermantown, a suburb of Duluth, and spoke at a carpenters’ union training center. This in itself is anachronistic. Biden is trying to rebuild the “labor” component of the Democrat-Farmer-Labor party, but it is much too late for that. Union members in northern Minnesota will vote heavily for Trump. Biden’s appearance verged on the bizarre. »

Quotations from Dementia Joe, cont’d

Featured image We’re going to have to differentiate among the forms of dementia when our book of Quotations From Dementia Joe comes out. The quote below falls into a straightforward category of demented — not confused, not addled, not senile — TDS-demented, right up the alley of CNN viewers at whom it was pitched. Just in case you missed it last night…this one is a killer, so to speak. Quotable quote: “Just »

Want Tax Cuts for the Rich? Vote for Biden

Featured image As we never tire of saying, if liberals didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all. And the best exhibit of this right now is that if Biden and the Democrats sweep the election, one of the first things they will do is . . . deliver a big tax cut to the rich. Don’t believe me? Then perhaps you’ll believe the . . . (checks notes) »

Quotations from Dementia Joe, cont’d

Featured image You may have heard that Joe Biden emerged from the basement to hold a staged event yesterday wooing six veterans — count ’em in the AP photo included with the FOX News story — in Tampa. The video below captures yet another of our Quotations from Dementia Joe: “Cause if you could take care, if you were a quartermaster, you can sure in hell take care runnin’ a, you know, »

The *Harris* Administration, Take Two

Featured image I’m starting to understand why Biden and the Democrats are so fanatical with the demands that we all wear masks right now. Because theirs keep slipping. First we have Kamala talking about “the Harris Administration, together with Joe Biden. . .” And now Joe Biden himself seems down with the program, speaking here today about a “Harris-Biden administration. . .” »

The unabridged Anton

Featured image Someone has posted Sunday’s installment of Life, Liberty and Levin on YouTube. I have embedded the video below. Candace Owens appears in the show’s two opening segments followed by Michael Anton for the next three. The occasion of Anton’s appearance is the publication of The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return. I posted the first of the three segments with Anton here yesterday. The second segment with him »

Why is Biden falling short of his party’s expectations with Latino voters?

Featured image Today’s Washington Post includes a front page story the essence of which is that Democrat operatives are frustrated that President Trump is making inroads with Latino voters. The Post attributes Trump’s inroads to (1) lack of direct outreach by the Biden campaign to Latinos and (2) lingering resentment over deportations that occurred during the Obama administration. I have no reason to doubt the reporting that Team Biden hasn’t done a »

Quotations from Dementia Joe

Featured image I still have my old copy of Quotations From Chairman LBJ. The book was inspired by Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-Tung (“the little red book”). Compiled by Jack Shepherd and Christopher Wren and published by Schuster in the annus horribilis of 1968, the book consisted of supposedly laughable quotes uttered by President Johnson. It was popular enough to go through multiple printings. My copy derives from the third printing. Despite »

When they Ducklo

Featured image By my estimate, Joe Biden has a half a mind to be president. We took a look at his call to “move it up here” for the teleprompter to answer a scripted question at a virtual event on Labor Day. Biden holds out the prospect of virtual presidency as well. Asked by Bret Baier yesterday about Biden’s (obvious) dependence on a teleprompter to answer the question, Biden national press secretary »

Kyle Smith meets Tokyo Joe

Featured image National Review has posted Kyle Smith’s article “Wrong-Way Biden” behind its premium paywall. The article is published in the magazine’s September 21 issue and it is excellent. I appreciated the first-person opening of Smith’s article in which he meets “Tokyo Joe” coming through on “a mischievous enemy radio station.” Smith writes: In January of 1991, I was a second lieutenant in the 178th Personnel Service Company, an administrative appendix to »

The Biden media adjunct

Featured image The Washington Free Beacon’s David Rutz has compiled another SUPERcuts video, this one to document the media’s in-kind contribution to the Biden presidential campaign. The Beacon has posted the video under the headline “Media take it easy on Biden,” though that doesn’t quite capture the self-abasement of the “reporters” involved. Rutz comments: “Even in their limited access to Joe Biden in the 2020 campaign cycle, mainstream journalists have taken to »

Expect epic infighting if Biden becomes president

Featured image This article in today’s Washington Post is called, “Biden’s flexibility on policy could mean fierce fights if he wins.” In the paper edition, it’s called “Biden’s fluid ideas portend fierce fights if he’s elected.” Notice the difference. “Flexibility” is often a desirable trait in a leader. Having “fluid ideas,” not so much. The article itself, by Annie Linskey, goes with flexibility. It portrays Biden as a skillful mediator of conflicting »

Joe Biden: “Move it up here”

Featured image Joe Biden visibly depends on the teleprompter to get through speeches, questions and answers, and interviews. The editors of the New York Post comment in “Why is Joe Biden addicted to reading his handlers’ scripts?” Biden has a half a mind to read his lines, as soon as they scroll up before him. Biden is enough with it to look for the answer to a scripted question on a teleprompter »

Watching Joe go slow, history edition

Featured image In case you missed it, Matt Margolis documents Joe Biden’s history lesson to a lucky audience in Kenosha yesterday: “Prof. Biden Claims ‘a Black Man Invented the Light Bulb, Not a White Guy Named Edison'” (video below). Biden instructed his audience in the higher sociological wisdom with which Obama loved to condescend to us: “People fear that’s, which, that which is different.” And then the history: “We gotta, for example, »

Watching Joe go slow again

Featured image Joe Biden struggled to read a statement in favor of school reopening yesterday and then took a few questions from reporters selected by his staff. On the way out, he recognized Peter Doocy as a reporter who asks him hostile questions and stopped to take his question as well. I took pages of notes, but there is no substitute for watching the video. Biden seemed to me to be slurring »

Living Up to Joe Expectations

Featured image As we know, Joe Biden emerged from hibernation Monday in Pittsburgh to make some comments about the urban unrest. Here are two Reuters photos that show the “crowd” for his speech. That’s it? Can Joe even manage a real walking tour of Kenosha, or anywhere else? By the way, he could have just done this with a green screen and a Pittsburgh backdrop in his basement. About the urban unrest, »

Not a Sister Souljah moment

Featured image With his standing in polls seeming to slide in the wake of non-stop rioting in jurisdictions controlled by Democrats, Joe Biden denounced violence in his speech yesterday in Pittsburgh. Here is what Biden said: And now we have to stand against violence in every form it takes. Violence we’ve seen again and again and again, of unwarranted police shooting, excessive force, seven bullets in the back of Jacob Blake. Knee »
