Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who bent the knee to Joe Biden several weeks ago, has finally commented on the sexual assault allegation against him. As badly as other Democrats have handled their answers about Biden, I think this one takes the cake.

.@AOC on Biden sexual assault allegations: “Frankly, this is a messy moment, and I think we need to acknowledge that — that it is not clear cut … [Tara Reade] has never explicitly said, ‘Don’t vote for Joe Biden’” [via NPR] pic.twitter.com/cpI3qKW21x

AOC, supposed champion of women and the #metoo movement, is actually arguing that Reade never told people to not vote for Joe Biden, so it’s probably cool or something.

I mean, I expect lunacy anytime she’s involved, but did no one bother to tell her how bad this looks? She’s excusing the possible assault on political grounds, which may not be her intent, but is certainly the perception being put forth. So now alleged rape victims need to also put out a comment to make sure and not vote for the guy who they say raped them? You’ve got to be kidding me.

As a contrast, here’s AOC following the Kavanaugh travesty.

We’re saying it loud and clear:

On Nov. 6th, if you are an elected official that minimizes, covers for, or ignores sexual assault, then we will replace you by electing survivors to office. #MeToo #CancelKavanaugh

Democrats have painted themselves into a corner here. The Reade issue isn’t going away and they’ve botched their responses from the beginning. They could have easily not been total hypocrites and not perpetuated the “believe all women” myth when it was convenient. They chose not to and are reaping the rewards of that.

Further, Reade has now completed an interview with Megyn Kelly. If they thought this story was “closed,” it’s going to be blown wide open again after Reade describes in detail the allegation she’s making.

For her part, AOC has shown herself to be far more about power than the change she claims to care about. She’s not the revolutionary she labels herself as, which is why she endorsed Biden despite gaining no concessions whatsoever from him. The entire Democratic Socialist movement is led by frauds and it’s glorious to see them exposed.

If Tara Reade had any illusions she was going to get the Blasey Ford treatment, I’d guess those are gone now. There have been no high-dollar Democrat lawyers donated to defend her, nor personal security paid to protect her. The media aren’t there to perpetuate her story and put her on the cover of magazines.

Instead, Reade has had to shoulder her accusations almost entirely alone, receiving death threats and a relentless barrage from the very people who coined the phrase “believe all women.”

In fact, things are getting so bad now that they are actually accusing Reade of committing a crime.

Debra Messing has now deleted that tweet, but the story remains up at Medium. I’m not going to bother linking to it, as I’d rather not give them the clicks and I’m not going to quote it.

The original piece is actually over a week old and was written by grifter brothers Brian and Eddie Krassenstein. You may recall them from their very public Twitter ban, but if you don’t, think of Seth Abramson’s account, but crazier.

Last night, that story started making the rounds again after a week of attempts to trash Reade and make her story go away. It’s becoming conventional wisdom on the left that she’s not only lying about Joe Biden sexually assaulting her, but that she’s also a political operative and crook.

Whether Reade’s accusation is ultimately true or not may be a question never answered. Especially if Biden is permitted to continue to deny access to his Senate records. But there’s no doubt that what was left of the #metoo movement has now been eviscerated.

No Democrat gets to flip the switch the next time a Republican they don’t like is accused. They’ve blown any possible moral high ground they once claimed to own, all to prop up a senile, nearly 80-year-old presidential candidate who can’t even remember how many grandchildren he has.

We’ll see if it was worth it for them.

Information surrounding the Michael Flynn railroading has went from a trickle to a flood at this point. New documents are getting released and we are starting to see just how corrupt the prosecution against him was.

Last night, we learned that FBI officials were conspiring to “get him to lie” so they could charge him or “get him fired.” The entire thing was a setup from beginning, prompted by James Comey’s order to go talk to Flynn.

Now, things are starting to look even worse. Apparently, the case against Flynn was originally closed and deemed non-viable before being oddly re-opened.

The “7th floor” in this case means the very top of the FBI were involved. James Comey and Andrew McCabe are the most visible in that calculation, but obviously, everyone knew what was going on.

The indication here is that the evidence simply wasn’t there. The original case agents had decided there was nothing to the idea that Flynn had lied, or at least that he didn’t have intent to do so. The case gets closed and labeled “not viable” until Comey and company get themselves involved again. Perhaps they were satisfied with him being fired originally?

But then the plan to take down Trump kicked into high gear, with the Mueller investigation to come just a short time later. Comey likely realized that he needed a scalp and Flynn fit the bill, so the case gets re-opened, it’s handed off to Mueller, and the rest is history.

Let’s also be clear that Mueller was part of this. He had these documents and knew the entire thing was a setup. Yet, he went along with it anyway, ruining Flynn’s life in the process. Mueller is not a hero, he’s not a statesman. He’s yet another corrupt company man, seeking to exert his political will while protecting the institution he cares more about than the rule of law. All of these people need to be nailed by the DOJ for their behavior. To not do so would set a precedent that’s incredibly dangerous.

This seems like a totally normal suggestion to be made by a “journalist,” and I’m not even really being sarcastic because it’s 2020 and all.

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle was interviewing former Obama bro Jim Messina today, who was ranting about Donald Trump, calling his press briefings a clown show. Instead of asking her guest to pull it back a bit or countering that ridiculous charge, Ruhle smeared herself with honey and ran right into bear country.

Here she is actually suggesting Joe Biden set up his own “shadow government” to counter Trump.

There are a few different, more technical words to describe that, but I’ll just stick with crazy because I don’t think she actually means what it sounds like she means. Regardless, the idea that a presidential candidate should form his own mock government to fight against the current president would be widely mocked by the media if a Democrat were in office. How do we know? Because Mitt Romney barely criticizing Barack Obama during Hurricane Sandy earned him near-universal scorn. But shadow governments during a pandemic? All good.

Of course, there’s a reason Biden hasn’t done this. He’s simply not capable of it.

This is a guy who can’t function off a teleprompter at this point, and many times, he can’t function on one as was illustrated today. Biden is not going to slyly begin soothing the American spirit with lofty speeches and policy proposals in competition with Trump. He’s lucky to know what day it is.

But this does show how insane our mainstream media are. They are quite literally suggesting full-on sedition and undermining of the government during a crisis just for partisan gain, whether they mean to escalate it to that level or not.

Call off the search, Joe Biden has been found.

After days of people wondering exactly where the former VP has been, Biden decided to appear before some friendly faces on The View today. He was interviewed remotely from what I’m assuming is his home, as it’s the same background he’s had for the last several videos he’s made. Apparently, all the rest he’s been getting the last few weeks has done nothing to sharpen Biden’s mental faculties, as he ended up devolving into incoherence rather quickly.

Wait, what? Yeah, I’m not going to even attempt to translate that. I have no idea what Biden is attempting to say there.

It got worse, though. Biden then started incessantly touching his face, even licking his fingers, at a time when everyone is being told to not do either of those things for the safety of everyone around them.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2020 Democrat nominee. Well, for now at least.

I’m really starting to think he doesn’t make it to the convention. There’s a reason Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York is basically auditioning to be the nominee right now. It’s possible the Democrats decide to dump Biden later in the year, as he’s certainly demonstrating evidence of dementia. This is not a person who’s going to be able to wage any type of real campaign, even a shortened one due to Wuhan virus.

Democrats screwed up here. They had a chance to nominate several other “moderate” (but not really moderate) candidates and instead chose the geriatric, senile guy. Now they’ve got nothing but bad choices in front of them. Do they ride this out with Biden, hoping he remains upright long enough to compete? Or do they override their voters and replace him as the nominee closer to November?

However they handle it, Trump has to like his odds.

Well, this is embarrassing, although not unexpected if you’ve been following this case.

The Mueller investigation produced several indictments, most of which centered on supposedly lying to the FBI. Figures like Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos took center stage, having not been proven to have done anything wrong in regards to Russia, but being relentlessly targeted because there had to be some scalps taken.

But there was one case that was said to have proven the Mueller investigation to not be a waste of time. It involved the indictment of a Russian company called “Concord.” Mueller claimed that said company was a front to conduct a full-scale information war against the United States during the 2016 election. This was supposed to prove the nefarious “election interference” we’d all heard so much about. When Mueller dropped the indictment, the media gasped and claimed vindication. Breathless editorials were written at record pace.

Well, it looks like the only real shot Mueller took just missed its target.

If the Mueller investigation wasn’t already proven to have been a total waste of time and money, this certainly seals it. Tens of millions of dollars and a country paralyzed for years to have their only case against the Russians dismissed with prejudice. Meanwhile, there was never much of any evidence that Concord did the things they were accused of. Mueller had essentially repackaged some old information the FBI had already dealt with to bring about the indictment and it came nowhere near holding up in actual court.

For more information on Concord and the Mueller investigation, be sure to check here and here. Hopefully, some lessons are learned by the DOJ and the partisans who attempted this nonsense. I doubt it though.

As RedState reported earlier today, Joe Biden’s brother is now caught up in a fraud scheme involving a company named Americore Health. James Biden is being sued for making false promises of influence, including from the current Democratic front runner, unwittingly or not.

Here are some of the details.

A new report reveals legal problems and allegations of possible fraud involving former Vice President Joe Biden’s brother James, in the latest instance of the Democratic primary front-runner’s family members’ dealings drawing scrutiny amid his presidential bid.

According to Politico, James Biden’s business with medical companies – including Americore Health – has led to allegations that he potentially engaged in fraud and traded on his brother’s name, by claiming Joe was interested in the venture and the family name could provide opportunities.

“It was all smoke and mirrors,” former Americore Health executive Tom Pritchard told Politico. James Biden reportedly convinced Americore that he could use his political clout to deliver a significant influx of cash in the form of an investment from the Middle East, and even convinced the company to take on financial burdens including a six-figure loan to James that he has yet to repay.

The excuse here will continue to be that Joe Biden wasn’t aware. I think you’d have to assume Biden has no mental faculties left (possible I suppose) to believe that he had all these corrupt actions going on around him, including trading on promises of influence, and that he just didn’t know any of it was going on. Further, James Biden introduced his brother to Greg White, who’s also facing accusations of fraud, at the time all of this went down. Instead of moving to shut it down, Joe Biden, at best, looked the other way.

Meanwhile, we know that Joe Biden was aware of his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine, where someone with no experience at all was paid $80,000 a month to seemingly do almost nothing. The appearance of corruption is overwhelming and to this point the elder Biden has not sufficiently answered any questions about that case. When he was pressed on it while Vice President, he hand waved away concerns and wants to now pretend the issue is closed. It’s not.

Biden can’t run from this forever. Things are going to come out and he’ll have to start providing some explanations for why he, as a public office holder, is so surrounded by corruption. Are we really to believe he’s had no hand in any of this? Or that he’s a victim, just having others take advantage of his good name? I don’t buy it. Biden has had ample opportunity to shut this stuff down. Instead of trying to reign his son in, for example, he’s simply ignored the issue.

Biden also has a history of taking large donations from certain companies and then voting in their interests as a Senator. That falls right in line with the trading on his name that’s been so frequent among his family.

In the current environment, it’s always worth asking what the reaction would be if this was Donald Trump. Imagine if Trump’s son had been involved in such a shady dealing in Ukraine. Would the media be looking into it? Of course they would be. Biden shouldn’t get special treatment just because he’s “Middle Class Joe” or whatever other common man moniker he’s flaunting these days.

We’ll see where this goes, but this latest revelation continues a trend of dirtiness surrounding the current Democratic front runner, with multi[ple family members using Joe Biden’s name to enrich themselves in corrupt fashion. Eventually, he’s going to have to start answering some questions about this stuff and yelling at reporters isn’t going to be enough.

There’s a bit of new polling out today and it’s not good news for the Michael Bloomberg campaign. After a disastrous debate, many on the left been holding their breath to see if Bloomberg can maintain his presence to truly challenge Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday.

But if these latest numbers are right, that’s probably not going to happen.

On the surface, this seems like really good news for Elizabeth Warren. The problem? She’s actually helping Sanders by further damaging candidates who are competitive on Super Tuesday, which she does not appear to be. By overtaking Biden and Bloomberg, Warren hurts the two people most likely to put up a fight before it’s too late.

Bloomberg all the way down at 13% is devastating for his chances. If that’s anywhere close to accurate, he’s likely done. His only path is to win several states on Super Tuesday and keep close enough to Sanders to force a brokered convention. Sure, he could conceivably buy the convention once they get there, but even a plan like that has its limits. If he’s 500+ delegates behind Bernie, there’s just noway in my view that the Democrats go full smoky back room and betray their voters.

Meanwhile, Amy Klobuchar’s rise continues to be a myth. There was real chatter after her strong finish in New Hampshire that she could become a player, but I was always skeptical. She simply didn’t have the organization, nor the minority support to maintain momentum. At this point, she should just drop out. The same is largely true for Buttigieg, but that guy’s ego is way too big to see him leave the race before Super Tuesday.

What all this adds up to is more good news for Bernie. The anti-Bernie vote is hopelessly split, the one guy with unlimited funds is losing viability, and the rest of the field are too selfish to join forces before it’s too late.

But it’s totally off limits to joke that Democrats are sympathetic to the Iranian regime you guys. Don’t you dare post any memes with Pelosi or Schumer insinuating such.

With thousands risking their lives in Iran to push back on the oppressive Islamist government that rules over them, you’d think the one thing Republicans and Democrats could agree on is supporting them in our rhetoric. No one is even talking about going to war, arming them, or doing anything other that saying “this is right, and this is wrong.”

But nope, Democrats blocked a resolution today that would have shown U.S. support for the protestors.

Worse, Democrats blocked even allowing a vote on the measure because they are too cowardly to actually go on record on the issue.

And just in case someone might think McCarthy had put some partisan poison pills in the resolution that made it impossible for Democrats to support, that’s another nope.

Consideration and a vote on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution was blocked because Democrats advanced the previous question, by a vote of 226-191. The resolution would have condemned the Government of Iran for killing 1,500 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, as well as condemned the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, killing 176 people.

In addition, the resolution; “(3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752; (4) calls on the Government of Iran to— (A) refrain from the use of violence; and (B) protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly; and (5) supports the protestors in Iran, their demands for accountability, and their desire for the Government of Iran to respect freedom and human rights.”

There was simply no excuse for Democrats not to allow a vote on McCarthy’s resolution unless they simply felt it was too harsh, which would pointedly show them to be sympathizing with the Mullahs. Enough obfuscating about the realities. Pelosi was just calling Mitch McConnell a Russian agent yesterday, so she’s owed no deference for her own actions.

I’m sure Democrats will try to save face with a watered down resolution of their own, but this was just despicable on their part. People are dying as we speak. This isn’t a time to delay a vote in order to play politics, but that’s exactly what they’ve decided to do. It shows exactly where their priorities lie.

Ilhan Omar is not a nice person.

That’s become abundantly clear given the behavior that’s been revealed over the last several months. We’ve known about her history of corruption and back biting for some time, including strong evidence she married her brother to commit immigration fraud, but her current marriage was thrust into the spotlight most recently. We found out that she was cheating on Ahmed Hirsi with a campaign consultant who she just happened to be shoveling hundreds of thousands of dollars to in campaign funds as well. While an investigation would need to take place, it sure looks like she was funding his travel and business expenses in order to facilitate her affair.

But if that wasn’t bad enough, a new report is out providing evidence that she not only cheated on Hirsi, she then, in all her vindictiveness, got him fired from his job.

This via PJ Media.

During the summer, sources* within the Minneapolis Somali community informed me that Rep. Ilhan Omar has been using financial leverage to prevent Ahmed Hirsi from filing for divorce.

Ahmed Hirsi’s employment with Councilwoman Cano was quietly terminated months ago: June 14.

The June 14 termination of Ahmed Hirsi’s employment is public data. Anyone can verify this information by filing a request with the City of Minneapolis City Clerk.

My sources stated that Ahmed Hirsi was terminated following a request by Rep. Omar. They added that Omar’s motivation for the request was to force Hirsi to become reliant upon her assets and income.

For the majority of 2019, Ahmed Hirsi has reportedly borne the responsibility of raising the three children he has with Omar. (One source used the term “abandoned” to describe Ilhan’s recent share of the parenting.) Since June 14, Hirsi does not appear to have a reliable source of income.

Meanwhile, Rep. Omar currently draws a $174,000 Congressional salary, and reportedly received a $250,000 book advance in January.

First she cheats on Hirsi and lies about it. The media, being the hacks they are, dutifully accept her denials and ask no further questions. Then irrefutable evidence emerges in the form of a divorce complaint that she did in fact commit adultery. Given all that, you’d think perhaps she’d at least have some sympathy on her husband and not try to ruin his life. Nah, she dumps the kids in his lap and gets him fired from his job because that’s apparently the kind of person she is.

Omar seems like a joy, doesn’t she?

It absolutely amazes me that all of this, including the initial affair, aren’t front page on every newspaper in this country. Can you imagine if this were a Republican having an affair in office and behaved this way? Would CNN cover it? Would they have a dozen reporters digging into every detail? Of course they would. But because it is Omar, she can basically act like a mob boss and no one but right wing news outlets bat an eye. This is a woman who threatened Hirsi in order to stop him from filing for divorce. Just this week, she was caught deleting tweets that revealed her father’s real name, corroborating accounts she committed marriage fraud.

This is not someone that should be in Congress. The fact that Democrats continue to baby her and protect her says nothing good about them. If this is the future of the Democratic party, the Democratic party can’t be allowed to retake power.
