What is Wrong with Grandpa Joe? Reporter Schools a Confused, Clueless Biden on Obamacare (VIDEO)

What is wrong with Grandpa Joe?

Creepy Grandpa Joe is currently on his “No Malarkey” Iowa bus tour desperately trying to whip up support for his low energy 2020 campaign.

So far his “No Malarkey” tour isn’t going so well.

Biden was corrected by a reporter from Noticias Telemundo on Thursday when he became confused about how Obamacare works.

Obamacare or the ‘Affordable Healthcare Act’ was passed while Biden was Vice President, yet he’s completely clueless.

The reporter actually had to school Biden on how Obamacare works — and this guy wants to be leader of the free world.

Biden quickly tried to correct himself but his brain was clearly short circuiting.

Newly-Elected Muslim Democrat State Lawmaker Charged with Stealing More Than $500,000, Will Resign – Faces Jail Time


Democrat Muslima State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell

Muslim state lawmaker Movita Johnson-Harrell, a Democrat from Philadelphia, was charged with stealing more than $500,000 from her own non-profit to pay for vacations, furs, designer clothes, bills and her run for state legislature.

The crooked Democrat didn’t even serve one whole year in office and she is already resigning in disgrace — she is also facing jail time.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:

State Attorney General Josh Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell engaged in “brazen corruption” and systematically tried to cover up her crimes by falsifying records and financial statements.

“Her theft knew no bounds,” Shapiro said as he announced that his office had charged the first-term lawmaker with theft, perjury, tampering with public records, and related crimes Wednesday morning.

Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell would plead guilty to charges and faces jail time. “There will be a guilty plea that will be worked out, and you will see the details of that soon,” he said.

Movita Johnson-Harrell “vigorously disputed” the allegations through a statement from her attorney.

“I am saddened and dismayed by the nature of the allegations brought against me today. I vigorously dispute many of these allegations, which generally pertain to before I took office, and I intend to accept responsibility for any actions that were inappropriate,” she said.

Recall, Movita Johnson-Harrell was just elected in March of this year in a special election when she attacked a Christian state lawmaker who prayed to “Jesus” during her swearing-in ceremony as “blatantly Islamophobic.”

The Muslim lawmaker called for Republican State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz to be censured over her Christian prayer.

A Christian being punished for praying to their Savior is a form of Sharia law — and the newly-elected Muslim lawmaker was pushing for the Christian lawmaker to be punished.

Movita Johnson-Harrell didn’t even last one year in her job before being forced to resign after attacking a Christian woman and stealing money from her own charity to fund an extravagant lifestyle.

Good riddance!

No Safe Spaces: See It!

(John Hinderaker)

No Safe Spaces is a terrific documentary about the Left’s assault on free speech. It stars Dennis Prager and Adam Corolla, and is directed by my friend Justin Folk.

My organization, Center of the American Experiment, held a pre-screening of the film in Minneapolis last Summer. We sold out a 368-seat theater and the movie got a great reception. I wrote about the event here.

Having seen No Safe Spaces, I recommend it unreservedly: you should see it. It is highly entertaining, and you will enjoy it.

The producers initially launched No Safe Spaces on a limited basis, opening in a small number of cities and drawing good crowds. The opening weekend was one of the biggest ever for a documentary. But this weekend is when the film opens broadly across the country, in around 200 theaters. It could be the make-or-break moment for a project that has been years in the making and features some of conservatism’s brightest stars.

If you go here, you can find a theater near you where No Safe Spaces is playing this weekend. I encourage you to attend, if at all possible. We conservatives often criticize Hollywood, with good cause. I virtually gave up going to movies years ago. But if we want to preserve a beachhead in popular entertainment, we need to support high-quality films that promote conservative ideas when we can. I have been following the development of No Safe Spaces for years, and have at least a general sense of the incredible amount of work and investment it takes to bring a film into production, distribution and general release. No Safe Spaces eminently deserves to succeed, and if it is a box office hit, it will encourage other conservative filmmakers for years to come.

So if you can, I hope you will go see it this weekend, or when you are able. I guarantee you will both enjoy and learn from the film. Here is the trailer:

DISGRACEFUL! Pope Francis Compares US President Trump to King Herod Who Slaughtered Baby Boys During the Time of Christ


The Slaughter of the Innocents

In the New Testament, the Massacre of the Innocents is the incident in the nativity narrative of the Gospel of Matthew in which Herod the Great, king of Judea, orders the execution of all male children two years old and under in the vicinity of Bethlehem.

On Thursday Pope Francis trashed the global populist people’s movements and compared President Trump to King Herod who slaughtered all the baby boys in Bethlehem.

What an outrageous statement by a very offensive and ignorant man.

Breaking Israel News reported:

In a report published on Thursday, it was reported that while on a recent visit to Buddhists in Thailand, Pope Francis addressed the issue of refugees, comparing the policy of building walls and detention centers to the acts of King Herod who killed Jesus.

La Civilta Cattolica reported on Thursday that while in Thailand, Pope Francis met a group of 48 Jesuits from Southeast Asia.  Pope Francis is unique in several respects; he is the first pope from the southern hemisphere and, most significantly, he is the first Jesuit to be appointed to the position.  The pope discussed the issue of refugees and immigrants with his fellow Jesuits.

“For the Jesuits our work with refugees has become a real “theological place.” That’s how I see it, a theological place. Pedro Arrupe right here in Thailand in his last speech reaffirmed the importance of this mission. Arrupe was a prophet to me: his ‘swan song’ was the foundation, right here in Bangkok, of the Jesuit Refugee Service. Then, during the flight to Rome from Thailand, he suffered a stroke.”

“The phenomenon of refugees has always existed, but today it is better known because of social differences, hunger, political tensions and especially war. For these reasons, migratory movements are intensifying. What is the answer the world gives? The policy of waste. Refugees are waste material. The Mediterranean has been turned into a cemetery. The notorious cruelty of some detention centers in Libya touches my heart. Here in Asia, we all know the problem of the Rohingya. I must admit that I am shocked by some of the narratives I hear in Europe about borders. Populism is gaining strength.”

Adam Schiff’s Release of Phone Records Invites Legal, Ethics Scrutiny

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., faces ethics and legal hurdles for obtaining and exposing phone records of political enemies, knowledgeable observers say. 

Schiff may have violated the same rule he used to threaten House Republicans, said Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project at the National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group. 

Schiff warned Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence not to reveal the name of the whistleblower who first filed a complaint about President Donald Trump’s now-famous July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

“Schiff warned Republicans members if they did anything to publicize the whistleblower, it would be a violation of House ethics rules,” Anderson told The Daily Signal. 

“He didn’t want other members to expose private information of the whistleblower,” Anderson said of Schiff, “but he is doing the same thing to people who don’t have anything to do with the impeachment process.”

The House Intelligence Committee, chaired by Schiff, has been the main player in Democrats’ impeachment inquiry targeting Trump.

Anderson referred to a provision of House rules against actions  to “cast discredit or dishonor on the House, the committee, or a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner or bring the House, the committee, or a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner into disrepute.”

Information released by Schiff included the communications Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the ranking member of the Intelligence Committee. 

Phone records included in the committee’s report show that Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was in contact with associate Lev Parnas, who was recently indicted for a campaign finance violation. 

The records also show that Giuliani was in contact with Nunes and Washington journalist John Solomon, formerly of The Hill. and that Nunes also talked to Parnas. 

According to the Schiff report, Giuliani also contacted the White House Situation Room and the Office of Management and Budget.

While obtaining information about a journalist likely would not be subject to an ethics complaint, significant concerns have been raised about Schiff’s releasing the information on Solomon, who long has covered Democrats’ efforts to cripple or remove Trump. 

The House rule applies only to attacks on fellow House members.   

However, release of records regarding figures not targeted in the investigation does demonstrate Schiff’s antipathy toward political rivals and sets an alarming precedent, Anderson said. 

“I hope his colleagues will pause and consider the ramifications of releasing private phone records, including records of calls made to journalists,” Anderson said. “In their zeal to pursue Donald Trump, the Democrats are setting terrible precedents. Do they really want to have these tactics used against them by Republicans in the future?”

House Democrats seek to impeach Trump based on the hold he temporarily placed on nearly $400 million in congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine, which is resisting Russian advances.

During the July call, according to a White House transcript released by Trump, the two leaders talked briefly about Trump’s interest in investigating Ukraine’s alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They also referred to the Ukraine-related actions of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who had a lucrative position on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Anderson said House rules need to be updated to specifically prohibit what has occurred under Schiff. 

“The House ethics rules on the books are outdated,” he said. “Technology is moving faster than legislation and in a wild, Wild West world of impeachment, the current rules are antiquated.” 

Patrick Boland, spokesman for Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, did not immediately respond to The Daily Signal’s inquiry for this report. 

But Boland told The Daily Beast that the committee did not subpoena the records of either Solomon or Nunes. 

“Any questions about the fact that members, congressional staff, or journalists appear in call records released by the committee should be directed at those individuals, who were in contact with individuals of investigative interest to the impeachment inquiry,” Boland told the liberal website. 

Schiff released the committee’s impeachment report Tuesday. 

The Office of Management and Budget challenged the Schiff report’s claim that Giuliani called the budget office, asserting that the phone number cited in the report was incorrect. 

The USA Patriot Act allows limited instances in which a phone company may hand over someone’s records to federal law enforcement authorities without notifying the person. Generally, federal law requires notification of the individual if their phone records are accessed, and the Patriot Act isn’t applicable to congressional probes. 

“There does not appear to be any basis to believe that a congressional committee is authorized to subpoena telephone records directly from a provider—as opposed to an individual,” former Attorney General Michael Mukasey told The Wall Street Journal. 

Although Giuliani’s actions became a focus of Democrats’  Ukraine investigation, Mukasey said release of the information  “raises questions of [protected] work product and attorney-client privilege.” 

In September, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed the phone records of five individuals from both AT&T and Verizon, according to the Journal.

AT&T this week released a statement saying it is “required by law to provide information to government and law enforcement agencies.”

An AT&T spokesperson did not respond to an inquiry from The Daily Signal. A Verizon spokesperson responded, but said the company does not wish to comment.

“This is an outrageous and shocking abuse of power by a member of Congress, misusing his authority to spy on his political opponents, reporters, and lawyers engaging in legal activity representing a client,” Hans von Spakoksky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal, referring to Schiff. 

“AT&T should be embarrassed that it participated in this spying operation rather than going to court to give the targets the opportunity to stop this underhanded domestic political espionage,” said von Spakovsky, a former Justice Department lawyer.

Once Again… Biden Deflects to Trump Impeachment After Reporter Confronts Him About Son Hunter and Burisma During Iowa Bus Tour (VIDEO)

Creepy Grandpa Joe is currently on his “No Malarkey” Iowa bus tour desperately trying to whip up support for his low energy 2020 campaign.

So far his “No Malarkey” tour isn’t going so well.

Biden on Thursday AGAIN was confronted about his son Hunter and his multi-million dollar gig sitting on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company.

Biden also got into an argument with an 83-year-old Iowan who blasted the former VP for his pay-to-play scheme with Ukraine, his son and Burisma.

Biden refuses to address his drug addict son Hunter’s many sweetheart deals with Ukraine, China, Romania etc so he’s getting frustrated as people keep the heat on him by pressing him about his corruption.

“Your son did make a lot of money — some reports of $50 to $80,000 a month in a Ukrainian company while you were Vice President — also had dealings with the Chinese State Government-run company while you were Vice President — was that wrong?” a reporter with Noticias Telemundo asked Biden on Thursday from his bus.

Biden quickly replied, “No! There’s nothing he did — there’s nothing he did that was illegal! I’m not going to play the game to take the eye off the culprit. The culprit here is what may have looked bad, but wasn’t anything wrong is totally different than whether a president has held up $400 million in aid for the Ukrainian military.” Biden said.

Of course this is a complete lie. Ukraine received US military THREE WEEKS EARLY and Ukrainian president Zelensky did nothing to receive the aid.

Old Grandpa Joe went on a bizarre tangent claiming Ukrainians were killed because of President Trump.

As expected, the reporter didn’t push back on old Joe and let him ramble on and make up lies about Trump in order to deflect from his own corruption and pay-to-play schemes.

The same cannot be said for President Obama as during the same time he lost (2.0) million jobs. Obama was so bad at creating jobs that by the end of his second term he said that jobs were not coming back. This showed in his first two years with millions of lost jobs.

Overall President Trump has gained nearly 9 million more jobs than Obama in their respective first two and three quarter years in office!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, under President Trump more Americans are in the work force than ever before. President Trump is working hard to bring good paying jobs back to the US and his efforts are showing historic results.

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the US unemployment rate stands at 3.5%.

The mainstream liberal media won’t report this, but when looking at the economy and jobs, the billionaire President Trump is making the American economy great again.

GOP Ranking Member Collins Sends Off Letter Demands Minority Hearing Day – Will Lawless Democrats Break This Rule Too?

GOP Ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) sent off a letter on Friday to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) demanding the Republican minority hearing day before the committee decides articles of impeachment.

Republicans are owed a day to call in their own witnesses.

Rep. Collins called on Nadler to contact his office to schedule the day.

Of course, Democrats fear a day of minority witnesses will destroy their complete sham of an impeachment process based on lies and hearsay.

The minority hearing day must take place before the #JudiciaryCommittee considers articles of impeachment.

Female Kentucky Judge Accused of Having Threesomes with Co-Workers in Her Office – Serves Drinks (VIDEO)

Kentucky Judge Dawn Gentry faces nine charges of misconduct in her courthouse. According to reports Gentry would hold threeways in her chambers and serve alcohol.

Judge Gentry also threatened workers to support her campaign or lose their job.

WFLA reported:

A Kentucky judge is facing nine charges of misconduct after an investigation revealed she treated the courthouse like her own personal swingers club. Officials say that the issues began when Kenton County Family Court Judge Dawn Gentry decided to hire Stephen Penrose, a former pastor who plays guitar in her band.

During her tenure as a judge, Gentry reportedly allowed staffers to drink and store alcohol in the courthouse. On at least one occasion, she had a threesome with Penrose and her secretary, Laura Aubrey, during work hours. She also tried to pressure one of her co-workers, Katherine Schulz, into having a threesome with her and Penrose. Gentry flirted with Schulz on Snapchat and asked her to seduce her husband and convince him to come to the courthouse to have sex.

Officials also accused Gentry of abusing her position by forcing staffers to support her reelection campaign. According to the complaints, she fired employees who refused to donate to her campaign and replaced them with people who supported her campaign.

The Obama Labor Department in its eleventh year?

(Paul Mirengoff)

One of my biggest grievances with Alex Acosta’s stewardship of the Department of Labor was his pursuit, based on indefensible statistical analyses, of compensation discrimination claims against Oracle and other high tech Silicon Valley companies. I discussed the flaws in the Labor Department’s analyses here.

These actions were filed in January 2017, just as the Obama administration was coming to an end. The idea was to force the Trump Labor Department to pursue them, or else be criticized by feminists and the mainstream media for refusing to do so.

Alex Acosta could easily have pulled the plug on these meritless cases. Criticism would have been perfunctory because it is customary for a new administration to review its docket, with special attention to cases brought by the old administration at the last minute.

However, Acosta’s goal was to avoid all criticism from the left. He did not want to burn any bridges he might need to cross in order to become a high-level federal judge or attorney general of the U.S.

I hoped that, when Acosta left the DOL, the Trump administration would terminate its cases against Oracle and Google (a third Silicon Valley case, against Palantir, has been settled). This would not have been an easy step. It’s one thing for an administration, when it comes to power, to review a case filed in the dying embers of the previous administration, and find that case wanting. It’s another to drop a case the new administration has been pursuing for several years.

In the latter instance, criticism from feminists and the mainstream media will be more vociferous and more plausible. The question will be, if the Trump administration prosecuted this case for almost three year, why did it suddenly give up on the matter? The honest answer — that the previous Labor Secretary was a wuss — isn’t one the new Secretary can give.

Thus, the path of least resistance was to keep pursuing the Oracle and Google cases.

But the Trump administration was elected to “drain the swamp,” not to take the path of least resistance. Moreover, no administration should ever press a case that rests on faulty premises, statistical or otherwise.

Thus, Gene Scalia, the new Secretary of Labor, should have ordered that the cases against Oracle and Google be dropped.

He did not. Consequently, the trial of the Oracle case began yesterday before an administrative law judge. The DOL alleges pay discrimination against female, Asian, and black employees during the period from 2013 through 2016.

According to the Washington Post, the Labor Department’s lead witness testified that during a meeting in “the mid-2000s,” the head of human resources said “if you hire a woman, she will work harder for less money.”

If made, this statement suggests, among other things, hiring discrimination against males. Yet, the DOL presents no such allegation.

In any event, what an HR head said in the mid-2000s has little, if any, relevance to Oracle’s pay policies in the period 2013-2016. A proper statistical analysis is the best evidence as to whether Oracle committed systemic pay discrimination in this time frame.

According to the Post, Oracle argued that the DOL’s expert statisticians compared employees based on broad job title and failed to take into account that a software developer who worked on Oracle’s product PeopleSoft is correctly valued differently than a developer who works on the artificial intelligence of machine learning.

These are the same points I raised back when the Obama Labor Department was entering its tenth year. They are valid and dispositive. They should have caused DOL’s current leadership to abandon the case or, at most, to settle it for peanuts.

Instead, the Trump administration continues to pursue a BS case foisted upon it by left-wing lawyers from the Obama administration.

BREAKING: White House Puts Nadler on Notice – Announces it Will NOT Participate in Sham Impeachment Hearing


Jerrold Nadler

White House counsel Pat Cipollone on Friday sent House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) a letter informing his committee that President Trump’s lawyers will not be participating in his sham impeachment hearing.

“As you know, your impeachment inquiry is completely baseless and has violated basic principles of due process and fundamental fairness,” Cipollone wrote.

“House Democrats have wasted enough of America’s time with this charade,” Cipollone continued. “You should end this inquiry now and not waste even more time with additional hearings. Adopting articles of impeachment would be a reckless abuse of power by House Democrats, and would constitute the most unjust, highly partisan, and unconstitutional attempt at impeachment in our Nation’s history.”

Dems Freak After GOP Senators Seek “Staff-Led Transcribed Interviews” with DNC Operative Alexandra Chalupa and Ukrainian Officials to Aid Hillary in 2016 Election


Alexandra Chalupa

Democrat lawmakers freaked after Republican Senators Chuck Grassley (IA), Lindsey Graham (SC) and Ron Johnson (WI) announced they are seeking “staff-led transcribed interviews” DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa had with Ukrainian officials during the 2016 election.

Recall, Alexandra Chalupa met with Ukrainian officials at the Ukrainian embassy and was given damaging information on Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Left-wing sites such as Politico reported on Alexandra Chalupa’s meetings with Ukrainian officials during the 2016 election in order to aid Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“The interview and records requests are a continuation of an inquiry that Grassley launched in 2017 following news reports that a Democratic National Committee consultant solicited derogatory information on the Trump campaign from Ukrainian embassy officials prior to the 2016 election  According to those reports, elements of the Ukrainian government were actively working to undermine candidate Trump’s electoral prospects in favor of Hillary Clinton,” the Senators wrote.

“In additional to the production of relevant records, Johnson, Grassley and Graham are requesting staff-led transcribed interviews with then-DNC consultant Alexandra Chalupa, who reportedly solicited damaging information on Trump campaign associates and lobbied Congress to launch a congressional investigation months before the election. They are also seeking a similar interview with Andrii Telizhenko, a political officer within the Ukrainian embassy at the time. According to reports, Telizhenko was ordered to assist in an off-the-books investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia he said was being coordinated between Ukrainian officials and “the Hillary team.” That investigation included then-Trump campaign advisor Paul Manafort’s prior business dealings in the region. A CBS News analysis of the reported arrangement noted that “it’s deeply unusual for an American campaign to be working with foreign assets like this, regardless of whether it’s Ukraine or Russia.”” the GOP Senators concluded.

The “dirt” Alexandra Chalupa got on Paul Manafort during the 2016 election was eventually used to put Manafort in prison and here we are years later and still no indictments of any of the Deep State FBI/DOJ coup plotters or Crooked Hillary’s minions.

Schumer: Every day that Senate Republicans parrot Putin’s talking points further undermines our democracy— & our national security—& raises questions about why the Republican majority in the Senate continues to block legislation to better secure our elections from Putin’s assault

— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) December 6, 2019

“Contrary to the popular narrative in the ‘main stream media’ that Ukrainian involvement in the 2016 election has been debunked, or ‘no evidence exists,’ there are many unanswered questions that have festered for years,” the GOP Senators said anticipating lying Dens like Schumer screeching that this is all a made up conspiracy theory.

The entire Russian collusion canard began in Ukraine which is why the Democrats are freaking out that Trump, Rudy Giuliani and GOP Senators are probing Ukraine.

John Kerry Joins Joe Biden on Iowa Bus Tour – Kerry Touts Biden as Messianic Figure Who Can ‘Save the World’ (VIDEO)

Former Secretary of State John Kerry joined Joe Biden on his Iowa bus tour because nothing says diversity like two old white guys, right Dems?

John Kerry touted Joe Biden, who has been in government nearly 50 years, as a messianic figure who can single-handedly save the world.

Watch the two crooks exit Biden’s tour bus:

Question: "Mr. Vice President, how does it feel to have your friend with you?"

Joe Biden: "It feels great to have my friend with me, I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have."

In a very creepy speech, John Kerry painted Biden as the second coming of Christ — a man who was sent to “put the world back together.”

Make no mistake, elitist Democrats like John Kerry and Joe Biden actually believe they are more powerful than God.

“Iowa, when you caucus in February, don’t just send a message. Send us a president. Send us a man who can put the world back together. Send us Joe Biden,” John Kerry said.

John Kerry’s stepson Christopher Heinz co-owned Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion dollar private equity fund with Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

Christopher Heinz immediately sprung into action to do some damage control in 2014 after Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company — Heinz wanted nothing publicly to do with Burisma and contacted the State Department in an effort to distance himself from Hunter.

Via the Washington Examiner:

Hours after Biden’s board appointment went public on May 13, 2014, Heinz emailed Matt Summers and David Wade, two of his stepfather’s top aides at the State Department.

“Apparently Devon and Hunter both joined the board of Burisma and a press release went out today,” wrote Heinz. “I cant speak why they decided to, but there was no investment by our firm in their company.”

The email was obtained through a public information request filed by the conservative nonprofit group Citizens United. The organization said the email raises questions about why Heinz was in touch with the State Department about Biden’s business dealings.

“This email raises a lot of questions. Why would Chris Heinz distance himself from Hunter Biden’s decision to join Burisma’s board in an email to John Kerry’s senior staff at the State Department?” said Citizens United President David N. Bossie in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “It’s time for Joe Biden to answer questions about his family’s business in the Ukraine and what his own role was in those dealings.”

“These are questions that congressional oversight committees should be demanding answers to,” he added.

Now the two crooks are in Iowa fleecing liberal dolts.
