Biden at Dem Debate on Gun Deaths: “150 Million People Have Been Killed Since 2007″…Go Home, Joe…You’re Not Well

It is horrible to watch a well-known person mentally slipping away right in front of your very eyes

FoxNews.com reports that

Former vice president Joe Biden went after the voting record of Democratic front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on the debate stage Tuesday night, slamming Sanders for supporting legislation that gave gun manufacturers absolute immunity from liability for gun violence, but in doing so, Biden grossly overstated the number of gun deaths since the 2007 law passed.

Biden, who says he is confident that he will sweep the lead in South Carolina’s primaries just days away — despite crushing losses behind Sanders in the three previous early voting states– lambasted Sanders’ record on gun control, particularly his vote in support of a law that protects firearms manufacturers from being held liable when gun violence and crimes are perpetrated. Sanders later disavowed the legislation in 2016.

“Imagine if I stood here and said we give immunity to drug companies, we give immunity to tobacco companies. That has caused carnage on our streets,” Biden said. “150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”

The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663. This number includes both violent firearm deaths and unintentional or accidental deaths, according to the Center for American Progress, an organization that promotes progressive values.

More in line with Biden’s figures, an analysis of FBI statistics by the Center found that from 2008 through 2017, more than 1.5 million aggravated assaults involved a firearm, with rates varying significantly across the states.

“I have cast thousands of votes, including bad votes. That was a bad vote,” Sanders said in defense on Tuesday night.

“If I’m elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association], I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers, I’m gonna take you on and I’m gonna beat you,” Biden said.

Speaking alongside six other Democratic contenders vying for the presidential nomination, Biden insisted he is the only candidate who can push major gun legislation through Congress if elected.

He boasted that while serving in the Senate, he backed the assault weapons ban that stipulated magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition be eliminated, which was not reauthorized after its sunset provision that expired in September 2004.

Biden also helped pass the Brady Bill in 1994, which mandated federal background checks on firearm purchasers in the United States and imposed a five-day waiting period on purchases.

Sleepy Joe Biden is obviously not well.

Just the other day he asked South Carolinians to vote for him in his run for the U.S. Senate.

He also recently said that his deceased son was the Former Attorney General of the United States of America.

Most of the time he doesn’t not seem to know where he is or which side of the stage to face.

And, according to Rush Limbaugh, speaking on his radio program yesterday,

Plugs claimed last night that he worked with the Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris climate accord. Well, Deng Xiaoping has been dead, room temperature, for 20 years. Deng Xiaoping is not the head honcho of the Chi-Coms. The head honcho of the ChiComs is a guy named Xi Jinping, and he’s becoming Mao Tse-tung Jr., becoming a total authoritarian. It’s why Crazy Bernie loves this guy.

And Crazy Bernie’s out saying nobody has raised the percentage of people out of poverty like the ChiComs have. What a crock. My God, this guy’s dangerous. He’s a crotchety, funny looking guy, but he’s dangerous. But poor Plugs claiming he worked with Deng Xiaoping on the Paris climate accord. The Chinese have nothing to do with the Paris climate accord anyway, except to go up and go (raspberry) we’re not playing. Deng Xiaoping left office in 1992. Deng Xiaoping was not even present when Plugs was vice president.

And then, did you hear about this? Plugs said he got arrested trying to greet Nelson Mandela as he was coming out of jail on Robben Island. “Yes, I was in Soweto! I was running around Soweto trying to avoid being necklaced, and I got arrested! I got arrested trying to meet Nelson Mandela.” Joe Biden was not in Africa when Mandela was released from Robben Island. (sigh)

I understand why the Democratic Elite are allowing Biden to stay in the race.

Bloomberg, the last-minute “savior” has all of the charisma of a ceramic turtle.

At least, Sleepy Joe has some fire in the belly.

Unfortunately for the Dems, he also has bats in his belfry.

So, he does not have a chance of stopping Bernie Sanders.

All the Former Vice President is doing is embarrassing himself, which is awfully hard to do, as he was no brain surgeon to begin with.

Last night’s Democratic Debate had all of the political effectiveness and decorum of a Three Stooges pie fight. (Hey, Moe!)

The Democratic Party’s embracing of “Democratic Socialism” (i.e., MARXISM) and the Far Left of the political spectrum has led them to the edge of a 2020 Presidential Election Political Tsunami, which just like the Great White Whale of Herman Melville’s novel “Moby Dick” will drag all of the TDS-obsessed Captain Ahabs of the Democrat Party down into an oceanic abyss which will take them years to crawl back out of.

And, it couldn’t happen to a “nicer” bunch.

DNC Cuts Number of Primary Candidates in Next Debate to 10….And They Still Won’t Beat Trump

5501223_082919-wabc-abc-debate-podium-img

FoxNews.com reports that

The Democratic National Committee made it official on Thursday – as media partner ABC News formally unveiled the list of White House hopefuls who’ve qualified for the upcoming third round of presidential primary debates.

The lineup is much smaller this time around. It’s been slashed in half after numerous candidates failed to make the cut by not attracting enough donors or support in the polls.

Unlike the two-night, 20-candidate showdown last month, just 10 candidates will face off on a single night in the upcoming debate in September. They are: former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro; Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

That means for the first time, all the top contenders will face off in the three-hour showdown on Sept. 12 in Houston.

Warren – who has soared in recent months and is neck-and-neck with fellow progressive standard-bearer Sanders – will finally share the stage with Biden, the front-runner in the race, as well as with Harris, another top-tier contender.

Biden and Warren will be standing center stage – with Sanders next to the former vice president and Harris next to Warren. Next to Sanders will be Buttigieg and then Booker. Next to Harris will be Yang and then O’Rourke. Klobuchar and Castro will stand at the edges of the stage.

For some Democrats frustrated by size of the record-setting field of 2020 White House hopefuls – which reached roughly two-dozen earlier this summer – the winnowing of the candidates who actually make the debate stage drew praise.

“I’m looking forward to getting to the place — assuming I’m still around — that it gets down to a smaller number of people so we can have more of a discussion instead of one-minute assertions,” Biden told reporters Wednesday following a campaign event in South Carolina.

But the tightened rules led to complaints from those pushed to the side.

To make the cut, contenders had until midnight Wednesday to reach two DNC thresholds – campaign contributions from 130,000 individual donors and reaching at least 2 percent in four qualifying national or early voting state polls.

Ahead of the deadline, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington State, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts dropped out the race. Inslee and Moulton announced re-election bids and Hickenlooper launched a Senate run in Colorado, in hopes of defeating incumbent GOP Sen. Cory Gardner.

And hours ahead of the deadline, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ended her White House bid. The New York State Democrat had told Fox News last week that “I’m planning on making this round.”

But she called it quits after her multi-million dollar TV and digital ad push and the beefing up of her ground game in Iowa and New Hampshire – the first two states to vote in the nominating calendar – failed to help her qualify. Gillibrand described not making the stage as “fatal” to her White House bid.

Most of the rest of the field of contenders say – at least for now – that they’re not quitting, as they aim to return to the debate stage for October’s fourth round, which has the same qualifying thresholds as the third round.

Oh, the excitement.

To paraphrase a song by the Little River Band (look them up, boys and girls)…

Have you heard about the Ten Dem Losers?

None of them could beat Trump on Election Day

There is simply no excitement building for any of the Democratic Primary Candidates.

That being said, I believe that the Dems will nominate a Far Left Presidential Candidate

And, it’s for the identical reason that they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Democrats Continue to remain out-of-touch with the majority of Americans.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News (except for Fox News) Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion”, Racism, an upcoming Recession, and “unfair treatment of asylum seekers” on our Southern Border, he should be as unpopular as Rosie O’Donnell at an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

But then again, according to those same news outlets, Hillary Clinton should be president, as there was no way the American Voters were going to elect Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America.

The past two-plus years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

With Mueller’s Investigation failing to produce the desired results, the Democrats continue to try to sabotage Trump by any means necessary.

The problem that the Democrats refuse to face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

Democrats have learned nothing at all from their time out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

The Far Left Democratic Party Hierarchy and Primary Candidates are so far removed in their lifestyles and political philosophy from average Americans that they cannot even understand the reason that the Electoral College was put into place was to prevent the nightmarish, despotic, fascist version of America which they are trying to achieve.

Thank God and Our brilliant Founding Fathers who established our Sovereign Nation as a Constitutional Republic and not a mob-ruled “Democracy” which could easily be manipulated into accepting a Marxist form of government.

When you watch the Ten Dem Losers answer softball questions from ABC Main Stream Media Minions during the upcoming debate, please notice how many of their “needed” giveaways are for the benefit of special interest groups but are using average Americans’ money collected through promised higher taxes.

And, think to yourself, does America really need one of these clowns as the Leader of the greatest nation on the face of the Earth?

Your answer will be “NO”.

Dem Debate 2, Round 2: Biden Vs. Booker Criminal Justice Boogaloo

30live-democratic-debate-promo2-videoSixteenByNineJumbo1600

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and former Vice President Joe Biden had a fiery exchange over their records on criminal justice, with the senator accusing the 2020 frontrunner of “dipping into the Kool-Aid.”

During Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, Biden defended his criminal justice reform plan, which Booker had previously called “inadequate.” But the New Jersey senator took things a step further as well, going after the former vice president for his heavy involvement in the 1994 Crime Bill.

“This is one of those instances where the house was set on fire and you claimed responsibility for those laws,” Booker said. “You can’t just now come out with a plan to put out that fire.”

Biden quickly went after Booker’s record as Newark mayor where he “hired Rudy Giuliani’s guy” and “engaged in stop and frisk.”

“You had 75 percent of those stops reviewed as illegal, you found yourself in the situation where three times as many African Americans were caught in that chain and caught up,” Biden hit back, continuing: “the Justice Department came after you  for saying you were engaging in behavior that was inappropriate and nothing happened the entire time you were mayor.”

Booker acknowledged that he “inherited a police department with massive problems,” but quickly returned fire at the former Delaware senator.

“We have a system right now that’s broken and If you want to compare records and I’m shocked that you do, I am happy to do that,” Booker shot back. “Because all the problems that he is talking about that he created, I actually led the bill that got passed into law that reverses the damages that your bills…. that you were bragging calling it the ‘Biden Crime Bill’ up until 2015.”

Biden reiterated his attacks about Booker’s enforcement of “stop and frisk”

“Mr. Vice President, there’s a saying in my community: ‘You’re dipping into the Kool-Aid and you don’t even know the flavor,” Booker shot back, sparking applause.

Booker continued, “You need to come to the city and see the reforms we put in place. The head of the ACLU said that I embraced reform not just in action but in deeds. You are trying to shift the view from what you created. There are people right now in prison for life, for drug offenses because you stood up and used that tough on crime phony rhetoric that got a lot of people elected but destroyed communities like mind. This isn’t about the past. This is about the present, right now.”

Democrats have always had a terrible record in regards to enacting “Criminal Justice Reforms”.

Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…

…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.

Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.

The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)

The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”

Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.

Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.

Uh huh.

The problem for the Democrat Candidates who choose to go after Biden on issues like his Crime Bill, is that most, if not all of them, live in glass houses.

Like Cory Booker, for example.

TheDailyBeast.com reported back in April of 2017 that

Months after he first entered the Senate, the New Jersey comptroller alleged that under Booker’s watch—or, more likely, because he was not watching—corruption ran rampant at a publicly funded water-treatment and reservoir-management agency, where Booker’s former law partner served as counsel. And speaking of his former law career: Despite having resigned from his law firm once entering the mayor’s office, Booker received annual payments until 2011, during which time the firm was profiting handsomely off of Brick City. That would be the Brick City that Booker professed to love with the fire of a thousand suns, but did little to fundamentally change. Murder, violent crime, unemployment, and taxes all rose dramatically under his stewardship.

The Far Left Democrats runing for their party’s Presidential Candidate Nomination all talk a good game when they talk about both “Social” and “Criminal” Justice.

The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.

They not only expect it, they rely on it.

However, the problem is the fact that Trump has made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters.

He is even considering shortening sentences of some non-violent drug offenders.

And, Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.

The big problem that the “unintended consequences” of Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill and the other Democrats’ records against crime in their constituencies poses for them is the fact that it shows their hypocrisy.

Just like Biden performing his imitation of a matador and waved the 1994 Crime Bill  on through, allowing “Bubba” to sign it into law, the other Democratic Candidates wave and shake hands with their constituents and then go home to their gated mansions in exclusive communities.

I thought the Democrats were supposed to be the “Party of the Common Man”.

Sheesh.

With “friends” like the Democrats, Black Americans don’t need any enemies.

Until He Comes,
