Once a Plagiarist, Always a Plagiarist…Biden Announces an “America First” Plan…Sound Familiar?

“We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.” – Presumptive Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden

FoxNews.com reports that

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden returned to his childhood hometown in Pennsylvania on Thursday during a trip where he proposed spending $700 billion on American products and research – in the hopes of bringing back millions of jobs lost by an economy flattened by the coronavirus pandemic.

The former vice president unveiled his populist plan during a speech at a metal works factory in Dunmore, Pa., just minutes from his childhood home in Scranton.

His proposal – called the “Build Back Better” plan – also seeks to create 5 million new jobs and is the first of four economic proposals Biden is expected to roll out over the coming weeks.

“Let’s use this opportunity to take bold investments in American industry and innovation, so the future is made in America, all in America,” Biden emphasized.

“When the federal government spends taxpayers’ money, we should use it to buy American products and support American jobs,” he added.

The American-centric proposals spotlighted by Biden will compete in this year’s White House race with the “America first” agenda long pushed by President Trump, who has emphasized protecting American workers and re-energizing domestic industries in decline while moving away from free trade and a global economy.

In a speech carried live by all three major national cable news networks, Biden repeatedly struck a populist theme and spotlighted his working class roots.

“If I am fortunate enough to be elected president, I’ll be laser-focused on working families, the middle-class families I came from here in Scranton, not the wealthy investor class. They don’t need me. But working families do,” he stressed. “We must reward work as much as we rewarded wealth, but now we just reward excessive wealth.”

“I do not buy for one second that the vitality of American manufacturing is a thing of the past,” Biden said. He also touted his longstanding close ties to union workers, saying, “I had an uncle who said, ‘Joey, you’re labor from belt buckle to shoe sole.’ Well I’ve taken pride in that.”

The first part of the former vice president’s proposal is a $400 billion investment by the federal government to purchase American products such as cement, concrete, steel, and other materials to rebuild the nation’s crumbling infrastructure.

The second part is a $300 billion investment in research for new technologies, such as electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, and 5G.

 Biden’s plan also calls for new tax breaks and credits for small manufacturers – including those run by minorities and women – and would levy penalties on companies who take federal money and then move their investments overseas. The campaign says that Biden will also push federal investments toward overlooked parts of the country that have not received government help.

The former vice president also took a firm tone towards China, pushing for “aggressive trade enforcement actions.”

Biden’s proposals appear to be an acknowledgment of the political success the president has enjoyed pushing his “America First” agenda. Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election was in part due to his promises of bringing back American jobs and re-inflating flagging industries. And as president, he’s waged an aggressive trade war with China and slapped tariffs on other nations, including longtime allies.

The president’s reelection campaign has slammed Biden for the slow economic recovery from the Great Recession during Biden’s tenure as President Obama’s vice president.

“Biden’s policies caused the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression, anemic job growth, and depressed wages for the workers left,” Trump campaign national press secretary Hogan Gidley argued.

And campaign manager Brad Parscale – taking aim at Biden’s past support for free trade deals – tweeted earlier Thursday that “Biden voted for [North American Free Trade Agreement], then spent decades defending it while 850,000 Americans lost their jobs.”

Back in 1988, Joe Biden was running for President as a Democratic Primary Candidate.

Sleepy Joe was caught plagiarizing rhetoric from then-British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock in three separate instances at a Democratic debate at the Iowa State Fair.

Biden later admitted that he should have said that he was “paraphrasing” Kinnock when he said those remarks. Later, he was later accused of using statements from the late Robert F. Kennedy as his own in another speech. It was also reported at the time that he either “quoted or paraphrased” John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey “without credit.”

Sleepy Joe also admitted that he plagiarized while writing a paper in law school.

And now, as the presumptive 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate, Sleepy Joe Biden has attempted t plagiarize the campaign slogan and strategy of President Donald J. Trump which helped him to win in 2016.

There is one problem with Biden’s strategy: No one believes him.

He has had decades in Washington to do what he is claiming that he will do if, God forbid, he is somehow elected president.

Biden, like the rest of the “Moderate Liberals”, an oxymoron if there ever was one, has totally joined in lockstep march with the rest of the Far Left Marxists in the Democratic Party.

Because of his obvious mental and physical deterioration, Biden will not be able to mentally or physically handle the herculean task of being the President of the United States of America.

And, if you believe that the Far Left Democrats are actually going through on a promises which mirror Donald Trump’s successes which they despise as much as they despise America, then I have a free pair of tickets to go see the Dixie Chicks waiting for you in Bubba Wallace’s NASCAR Garage.

To propose a a plagiarized campaign strategy like this for a loser of a candidate like Sleepy Joe Biden is embarrassing, even for the arrogant out-of-touch Democrat Elite.

Biden told the Main Stream Media in 1988, after being nailed as a plagiarist, that

“I’ve done some dumb things, and I’ll do dumb things again.”

That was an understatement.

Trump to Sign EO “to Temporarily Suspend Immigration into the United States” to Further Fight COVID-19 and Boost the Economy

1800x1200_coronavirus_1

“Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the U.S. would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants, non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions that he may deem to be appropriate,”- 8 U.S. Code § 1182 

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump announced late Monday he will soon sign an executive order “to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States” in a drastic escalation of his efforts to fight the coronavirus pandemic and boost the economy.

The declaration came hours after U.S. equity markets crashed, with oil prices turning negative for the first time in history. Also on Monday, three states — Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina — revealed plans to begin reopening some businesses.

“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!” the president tweeted.

The precise contours of the president’s planned executive order were not immediately clear. The U.S. recently agreed with both Canada and Mexico to extend border restrictions on nonessential travel for another 30 days, through May 16 and May 19, respectively.

And, the president already has blocked most travel from other hotspots, including most of Europe, Iran, South Korea, and China.

However, people with temporary work visas, students and business travelers were exempted, along with emergency personnel.

On Monday, the U.S. government said it will continue to quickly expel migrants it encounters along the border with Mexico for at least another month in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Under the U.S. policy change spurred by the virus, the U.S. government has sent some 10,000 Mexicans and Central Americans back to Mexico, according to data from the U.S.Border Patrol.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says that more than 100 migrants at 25 detention centers have tested positive for COVID-19. Guatemala claims that 44 migrants deported from the U.S. tested positive.

Monday’s immigration suspension was sure to draw fire from Democrats. On Jan. 31 Trump issued the “Proclamation on Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Nonimmigrants of Persons who Pose a Risk of Transmitting 2019 Novel Coronavirus,” blocking most travel from China — and at the time, Democrats harshly criticized the move.

Within hours, Joe Biden campaigned in Iowa and told the crowd that Americans “need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it, that he is going to act rationally about it. … This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”

Months later, Biden said he supported China travel ban.

President Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do I he was elected Presidet: he is putting America FIRST.

His job as president is to protect American citizens from enemies foreign and domestic.

By suspending immigration to our Sovereign nation, he is protecting us from those who, intentionally or unintentionally, might bring the Chinese Coronavirus to America with them.

He is also protecting American jobs from an influx of foreign workers.

There is nothing xenophobic or hysterical about protecting America from a disease which has already killed over 40,000 of our citizens.

Immigration bans are nothing new.

The Immigration Act of 1924 was passed because America had experienced an overwhelming flood of immigrants, which strained the resources of our nation.

This act allowed all of these immigrants to be assimilated into American Society and to actually become Americans, in thought, word, deed, and LOYALTY.

Ad, in April of 1980, during the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Liberal President Jimmy Carter stopped Iranians from immigrating, because, just like the situation we faced today with Radical Islam, we were AT WAR.

Today, we are at war, again.

This time, as President Trump says, we are at war with an invisible enemy, one which does not differentiate between man and woman or adult and child.

COVID-19 knows no race or sexual orientation.

For the safety of our Sovereign Nation and the stability of our economy, President Trump must temporarily suspend immigration.

And, by his political response to an situation which endangers ALL Americans, Joe Biden has provided another reason why his is not capable of handling the job of being President of the United Stated of America.

“I Am Your Voice”: Trump Accepts Nomination…Hey, Political Elite…Can You Hear us Now?

Platforms-2016-600-LILast night, Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump accepted the nomination of his party with a 76-minute stem-winder of a speech, which left no doubt that he is ready to take it to the Democrat Party and their representative, the soon-to-be nominated “Queen of Mean”, Hillary Clinton.

Politico.com reports that

Exactly 350 days after Donald Trump stood in Quicken Loans Arena at the first presidential debate and refused to endorse the eventual Republican nominee if it wasn’t him, he accepted that same Republican Party’s nomination — and vowed to keep winning all the way to the White House. In the biggest address of his unlikely, divisive and meteoric political career, Trump on Thursday night sought to bring together a party that he helped fracture in an ugly primary that left divisions that were apparent all the way through a tumultuous four days in Cleveland.

The Manhattan mogul sold himself as the champion of a downtrodden working class — “America’s blue-collar billionaire” as one speaker called him earlier in the evening — promising to restore “law and order” and casting himself as a change agent against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“I am your voice,” he boomed, pointing straight toward the television audience.

“Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. Never ever,” Trump said. “My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now.”

Trump delivered a deeply negative speech that described a darkening America. He spoke of spiking crime, “third-world” airports, growing trade deficits, “chaos in our communities,” and terrorism on the home front. Abroad, he said, the situation was “worse than it has ever been before.”

“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness,” he said.

“Lock her up!” the crowd burst out repeatedly during Trump’s speech and throughout the week. Hatred of Clinton has proved among Trump’s most potent weapons as he has pursued elusive party unity.

But the energy in the arena faded as Trump’s speech stretched past the one-hour mark and as Trump’s deliberative style while reading a teleprompter slowed his cadence to a crawl. C-SPAN reported it was the longest acceptance speech since at least 1972.

While Trump used heated rhetoric to rip into Clinton, he adopted far more progressive and conciliatory language in what amounted to the kick-off speech of his general election campaign. He spoke about inner cities suffering under Democrats, African-Americans living in poverty, and the vision of “a country of generosity and warmth.”

Citing the recent attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Trump said he would do “everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens.” When the crowd applauded the line, Trump ad-libbed, “As a Republican it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said.” Facebook reported it was the most talked-about moment of the speech on its network.

Earlier, Trump had granted a speaking slot to Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel, who declared to cheers, “I’m proud to be gay. I’m proud to be a Republican. But most of all I’m proud to be an American.”

All of Trump’s children jumped to their feet and clapped in unison. It was a remarkable display for a party that had stripped all gay-rights mentions from its platform the week before.

In Ivanka Trump’s speech introducing her father, she adopted rhetoric far more typical of Democrats, promising that Trump, as president, would pursue affordable child care and equal pay laws for women. And after months of criticism of Trump for racist and xenophobic rhetoric, she said her father was “color blind and gender neutral.”

Trump also modulated one of his signature policies — “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims” entering the country rolled out last December — casting his immigration blockade in terms of terrorist-compromised countries, rather than an entire religion.

“He drew the line with Hillary very clearly,” former Speaker Newt Gingrich said afterward. “Eighty percent of Americans will find something to like in there.”

How refreshing.

What a contrast to what we heard from the present occupier of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

No racially-divisive rhetoric, no allusions to the Marxism Axioms revolving around Class Warfare, no self-deification, such as

This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.

By the way, how’s that “Hope and Change” workin’ out for ya?

But, I digress…

Instead, we heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes.

And, therein lies the secret of Donald J. Trump’s successful campaign for the Republican Presidential Nomination.

What Trump did, with his refusal earlier in the campaign to “act more presidential”, was to implement a strategy.

Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only was to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being employed by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, named Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved and is proving effective, in the case of both Presidential Candidates.

As the polls show, and will continue to show, Trump has struck a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

Why is Donald J. Trump so popular with average Americans?

The reason is very simple: WE’RE ANGRY.

Our palpable anger is one which has been building since January of 2009, when a Lightweight, who has as much in common with average Americans as a Martian would, was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.

That anger, a result of his anti-American actions and resulting policies, which have affected Americans’ daily lives, has been exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, have distanced themselves from those who elected them to Congress in the first place.

Meanwhile, average Americans, like you and me, remain mired up to our necks in an abysmal swamp of bills and taxes, living paycheck-to-paycheck, afraid to make a move, for fearing of drowning in an ocean of debt.

Seemingly forgotten, in all of the forgotten promises, made by Barack Hussein Obama, are the over-94 million Americans, who are no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.

You want to talk about anger and frustration?

Try looking for work, when you are over 55 years of age.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.

It is this anger, which has propelled Donald J. Trump to his victory in the Republican Primary Race…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo know it.

That is why the Republican Establishment, at least some of them, have hitched a ride on “The Trump Train”.

I they had not accepted the reality of his Primary Victory, and the fact that Americans are angry, they would have gone down to defeat again in 2016.

They would have never achieved victory by once again trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Hence, the failed campaign of Jeb! Bush.

In summation, the American people are tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, is a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wants to become a public servant.

Does Donald J. Trump need to “tone it down”, in terms of speaking “truth to power”?

Judging from the success of his Acceptance Speech last night, NO.

Only if he wants to sound like a Professional Politician.

Judging from the reality of Donald  J. Trump’s growing popularity with the American Public, Americans have had our fill of them.

Until He Comes,
