  • ABC/WaPo Poll: 15% of Bernie supporters will vote for Trump as Biden faces “massive enthusiasm gap” in general election

    “Indeed, strong enthusiasm for Biden among his supporters – at just 24% – is the lowest on record for a Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years of ABC/Post polls. More than twice as many of Trump’s supporters are highly enthusiastic about supporting him, 53%.” Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump. From the ABC News poll write-up: Former Vice President Joe Biden has emerged as Democrats’ top choice for the presidential nomination in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, but with only bare majority support within his...

    The public perception problems for Joe Biden are growing. He’s not all there, as is obvious from his disastrous livestreams and TV interviews, and has all but disappeared during the Wuhan coronavirus crisis. A just-released ABC News / Washington Post poll reveals another problem, one that comes as no surprise: Democrats are not enthsiastic about Biden, even as he racks up delegates and appears headed to the nomination. Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump.

    As mask rules have caused some controversy on U.S. airlines in recent months, Qatar Airways is taking an even stronger stance by requiring economy passengers and cabin crew to wear both face masks and face shields on board. In its recent announcement, the airline says it will provide passengers with a complimentary kit of disposable protective gear that includes a shield, surgical mask, gloves and hand sanitizer gel.

    Usama bin Laden wanted to assassinate then-President Barack Obama so that the "totally unprepared" Joe Biden would take over as president and plunge the United States "into a crisis," according to documents seized from bin Laden's Pakistan compound when he was killed in May 2011. The secretive documents, first reported in 2012 by The Washington Post, outlined a plan to take out Obama and top U.S. military commander David Petraeus as they traveled by plane. “The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make [Vice President] Biden take over...

    Osama bin Laden planned to assassinate President Barack Obama to unsteady the United States by putting 'totally unprepared' Joe Biden in charge. Declassified documents seized from Bin Laden's Pakistan compound as he was killed in May 2011 reveal his plans to throw the U.S. 'into a crisis' by killing Obama while he traveled in a plane with U.S. military commander David Petraeus. The 45-page document, which were first reported by The Washington Post in 2012, is now available in full along with hundreds of others from the raid.

    s New York City suffers an economic crisis on top of the coronavirus pandemic, some are looking back with regrets at the left-wing campaign that forced Amazon to scupper a plan to bring tens of thousands of jobs to the area – arguing this project could have helped the Big Apple weather the storm. “At this time when coronavirus is ravaging incomes across New York, wouldn’t it be nice if the city and state at least knew that one of the world’s largest companies, one of the rare concerns positioned to thrive through the crisis, had made a long-term commitment...

    An Army officer who played a high-profile role in President Trump’s impeachment proceedings is retiring from the military over alleged “bullying” and “retaliation” by the president, his lawyer said Wednesday. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who served as a national security aide at the White House until earlier this year and was up for promotion to colonel, will leave the military instead, his lawyer, David Pressman, said in a statement. “Through a campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, the president of the United States attempted to force LTC Vindman to choose: Between adhering to the law or pleasing a President. Between...

    That much news coverage is biased against President Trump goes without saying. But every now and then there comes an episode of bias so egregious that it deserves attention. The coverage of the president's July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore is one of those episodes. The Wall Street Journal editorial page called it "one of the best speeches" of Trump's time in office. Conservative intellectual Roger Kimball called it "perhaps his most forceful and eloquent to date." The message, Kimball said, was an "invitation to unity in the midst of conflict." Indeed, Trump's theme was a call for Americans to...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | July 7, 2020 | Seth J. Frantzman
    [Tehran] is in a difficult position because it labeled the explosion an accident, but it is now facing a deluge of foreign media reports seeking to conclude that the explosion was perpetrated by a state or group. This is what Iran's regime is reading: Major media from The New York Times to The Washington Post and local media such as Kuwait's Al-Jarida have all sought to assert that Israel was involved in the mysterious July 2 explosion at a warehouse in the Natanz nuclear enrichment facility... [t]hat could set back the program for months or a year. Iran, however, is...
  • Joe Biden is bringing back the front-porch campaign. It might work. (probably not)

    07/07/2020 3:21:02 PM PDT · by Libloather · 41 replies
    Republicans keep hoping and expecting that former vice president Joe Biden will have to leave his basement and hit the campaign trail sometime soon. Don’t be surprised, though, if that doesn’t happen. Biden looks to be trying to run a 21st-century version of the standard 19th-century “front porch campaign” - and it might work. Presidential candidates rarely actively campaigned in the 19th century. The lack of a national railroad system made travel too arduous for candidates before 1850. Even after that, it took days for trains to travel between major cities, and the lack of any means of mass communication...

    Clint Lorance had been in charge of his platoon for only three days when he ordered his men to kill three Afghans stopped on a dirt road. A second-degree murder conviction and pardon followed. Today, Lorance is hailed as a hero by President Trump and conservative media. His troops are still haunted by his crimes....
  • Washington Post opinion editor calls America a 'racist *and* patriarchal society' and says 'white men protecting their women from black people' are behind the threats over her 'Karens are lucky' tweet

    The Washington Post opinion editor who said white women are lucky black people aren't looking for revenge has hit back at criticism saying America's 'patriarchal society' has created the notion that white women must be protected from black people. Karen Attiah, 34, wrote on Twitter that 'America is a racist *and* patriarchal society' and that the 'toxic ideas of white masculinity' must be broken down to end racism. She later tweeted about the nickname 'Karen' being retired for 'dangerous white women' after revealing some of the threatening emails and texts she has received since her first controversial tweet.

    Would you be surprised if multinational corporations and wealthy, powerful, mostly white commentators in New York and D.C. got their way over the will of Native Americans on an issue that is mostly about Native Americans? I wouldn’t be. In other words, I won’t be surprised if our wokeness-obsessed corporate titans combine with our ever-leftward-lurching media to strip the Washington Redskins of their name — despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of Native Americans are not offended by it. FedEx, the named sponsor of the stadium where the Redskins play, demanded that the team change its name. Nike won’t...

    Washington Post global opinions editor Karen Attiah called America “a racist *and* patriarchal society” in response to the threats she says she got over a deleted tweet that reportedly declared, “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.' And not calling for revenge.” In a tweet over backlash she wrote: “America is a racist *and* patriarchal society. We cannot dismantle the full range of oppression in this society without addressing how toxic ideas of white masculinity interplay with the notion of ‘protecting’ their women from Black people.

    The Washington Post proclaimed that President Trump attempted to “resuscitate his troubled reelection campaign by galvanizing white supporters” during Friday’s patriotic Mount Rushmore speech and asserted that he moved to secure the “legacy of white domination.” The Post’s Robert Costa and Philip Rucker, in a July 4 screed not labeled opinion, unloaded on President Trump’s July 3 speech and asserted that Trump is alienating Republicans who are apparently “unnerved” by his “unyielding push to preserve Confederate symbols and the legacy of white domination,” which was “crystallized by his harsh denunciation of the racial justice movement” during Friday’s speech:

    President Trump’s unyielding push to preserve Confederate symbols and the legacy of white domination, crystallized by his harsh denunciation of the racial justice movement Friday night at Mount Rushmore, has unnerved Republicans who have long enabled him but now fear losing power and forever associating their party with his racial animus. Although amplifying racism and stoking culture wars have been mainstays of Trump’s public identity for decades, they have been particularly pronounced this summer as the president has reacted to the national reckoning over systemic discrimination by seeking to weaponize the anger and resentment of some white Americans for his...

    To all the wealthy, liberal elites who are cheering on the protests and riots, a word of warning is in order. The same holds true for the conservative Christians who are lining up to show their support for the BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement. To each of you I say: Do not be deceived. The cancel culture will soon be coming for you. A few weeks ago, I read about a TV sports journalist who tweeted his support for rioters in a nearby city. “Burn that s— down. Burn it all down,” he tweeted with glee. Later that same day,...

    <p>With the economy hobbled by the coronavirus pandemic and protesters in the streets targeting America’s systemic racism, President Trump has been forced to revise his reelection strategy. What was once going to be a triumphal declaration of his effectiveness at keeping the economy afloat has been reworked as a reiteration of his 2016 run: a focus on making America great and, more specifically, on law and order.</p>
