Blue Lives Matter
"Say Her Name!" has become a mantra of the left as it attempts to exploit the tragic death of Breonna Taylor. Yet it is astonishing how little national media interest there is in the two Louisville police officers who were shot earlier this week. It's almost as if they never existed.
“Say Her Name!” has become a mantra of the left as it attempts to exploit the tragic death of Breonna Taylor. Yet it is astonishing how little national media interest there is in the two Louisville police officers who were shot earlier this week. It’s almost as if they never existed.
One officer, who is white, was shot in the hip, and thankfully managed to return to work. His name is Aubrey Gregory. The other officer, who is black, was shot in the stomach, right below his bullet-proof vest. He underwent surgery and remains in the hospital. His name is Robinson Desroches, and he joined the Louisville police force just last year.
How is it that this movement, which claims to care about black lives, has turned dozens of cities into hotbeds of anarchy? It is clearly not motivated by the concerns of black Americans, who overwhelmingly support the police.
But some radical activists within this movement couldn’t care less about black police officers. If they did, they would be saying, “Remember Officer Robinson Desroches.”
Some of the people saying the judicial system is racist and needs reform don’t really mean that. If they did, they would be applauding Daniel Cameron, the black attorney general of Kentucky, who won his election by one of the largest margins in Kentucky history.
It is clear that if you are a black police officer or black attorney general who is doing your job and following the law, you are not really black as far as this radical movement is concerned.
So, it’s not justice that they are after. No doubt there are some well-meaning protesters who are. But they are being used by powerful forces who seem intent on ripping America apart, almost as if they are trying to provoke a race war.
Sadly, there are many corporations, professional athletes, media commentators, and Hollywood stars lending their prestige and power to magnify this movement that wants to destroy the country that has made them so successful. They are what the Soviets used to call “useful idiots.”
They should be speaking up in defense of the police and the black attorney general of Kentucky.
Wake up, America, before it’s too late!
More Deep State Corruption
The evidence of the Deep State’s meddling in our elections and its corrupt attack against the presidency of Donald Trump is a national scandal bigger than Watergate!
Here’s the latest revelation: Numerous FBI agents and analysts involved in the investigation of the Trump campaign took out professional liability insurance because they were so concerned about the potential illegality of their actions. We know this from newly disclosed text messages from the FBI.
On the very day CNN revealed that James Comey had briefed President-elect Trump about the existence of the Steele dossier, one agent sent this text: “[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance.”
In the exchange, the agent notes that all the analysts and “All the folks at the Agency as well,” also took out liability insurance because they were concerned that “[T]he new [attorney general] might have some questions… then yada yada yada … we all get screwed.”
Additional text messages also reveal just how weak the Russian collusion case was and how much some agents regretted the FBI’s actions.
There is considerable irony in all of this. The reason we know about these text messages is because Judge Emmet Sullivan refuses to sign off on the Justice Department’s decision to drop the charges against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. So, Flynn’s attorneys are continuing to demand more documents, which Attorney General Barr is providing.
And there’s more.
One FBI agent assigned to Robert Mueller’s team told Justice Department investigators that the case against Flynn was extraordinarily weak and that the Mueller investigation had a “get Trump attitude” because the Russia collusion investigation was a “dead end.”
It is also being reported that Christopher Steele’s “primary source” for the infamous dossier that propped up this hoax had previously been the subject of a counterintelligence investigation for his ties to Russian spies.
I hope this is not the case, but there seems to be something physically or mentally amiss with former Vice President Joe Biden. I don’t say that with any glee. And I hope the people around him who love him will address it and get him some help.
Multiple times in recent weeks, Biden’s campaign has announced what is called a “lid,” which means Biden will not be doing any events that day. The frequency of these “lids” is shocking reporters who cover the campaign.
But we have all seen the many instances lately where Biden just cannot follow a line of thought and seems to be dazed and confused. He also appears at times unable to discern numbers, calling thousands “millions” and millions “billions.”
For example, referring to COVID-19, Biden recently said, “It’s estimated that 200 million people have died — probably by the time I finish this talk.” Anyone else would have immediately realized they had misspoken. There are only 330 million Americans. But Biden has repeatedly misstated figures related to the coronavirus.
Earlier this year, Biden said 150 million people died from gun violence. Well, between guns and COVID, he’s wiped out the entire country!
Most people don’t know this, but Joe Biden has had two surgeries for brain aneurysms. He has repeatedly told the story about a surgeon telling him that he had less than a 50% of chance of being “completely normal.”
Of course, Biden likes to tell stories about his three college degrees and a “moving but false war story.”
People age in different ways, and age appears to be taking a serious toll on Joe Biden. A former White House stenographer who worked extensively with Biden during the Obama years said that the former vice president is “a different guy than he was” and “a shell of his former self.”
Don’t get me wrong. If you watched the Democrat debates, Biden held his own and at times showed flashes of his old self, able to repeat soundbites with some energy.
I suspect Biden will look fine during Tuesday’s 90-minute presidential debate, assuming that is the only thing he does that day. But it is hard to believe that he is up to the rigors of the presidency, and we cannot afford a low-energy president.
This is not a low-energy world. Things are happening quickly. Vladimir Putin is not low energy. Xi Jinping is not low energy.
