  • Why It’s A Baseless Smear For Biden To Call Trump A Racist

    Despite the incessantly cited falsehood that Trump is a racist who supports white supremacy, the record and the facts reveal a far different reality. During Thursday’s presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden made the rather audacious claim that President Trump is “one of the most racist presidents in modern history.” Debate moderator Kristen Welker also weighed in, asserting that the president’s racially charged rhetoric is often viewed as inciting racial strife. These claims appear to be, as the former vice president would say, “malarkey.” When examining both the president’s personal record and the record of his administration, it is...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted the debunked “Charlottesville very fine people hoax” on Thursday in an attempt to blame President Donald Trump for a foiled kidnapping plot by members of a militia in Michigan. On Thursday, federal agents arrested half dozen alleged conspirators who had plotted to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The group shared an anti-government ideology; one member recorded a video denouncing Trump as a “tyrant.

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday tried to walk back his refusal to outright condemn a far right fascist group during his debate with Democrat Joe Biden, but the inflammatory moment was far from the first time the president has failed to denounce white supremacists or has advanced racist ideas. Trump’s initial refusal to criticize the Proud Boys — instead saying the group should “stand back and stand by” — drew fierce blowback before he altered his message in a day-later effort to quell the firestorm. “I don’t know who Proud Boys are. But whoever they are they have to stand...

    'Well, first of all, I guess I’m debating you, not him,' Trump said to Chris Wallace during Tuesday's 2020 presidential debate. Fact check: True. Debating one person is difficult, especially if he’s had oodles of alone time in his basement to prepare while you’ve been a little busy leading the country. Debating that person and a partisan media hack at the same time is just BS.That, however, was President Donald Trump’s exact plight Tuesday night at the first 2020 presidential debate, when he was treated to a two-on-one showdown with his actual opponent Joe Biden and his honorary rival, Fox...
  • For Joe Biden, Charlottesville defines the Trump presidency (Called Antifa "Courageous" 04/25/2019)

    "Charlottesville is also home to a defining moment for this nation in the last few years. It was there on August of 2017 we saw Klansmen and white supremacists and neo-Nazis come out in the open, their crazed faces illuminated by torches, veins bulging, and bearing the fangs of racism. Chanting the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ‘30s. And they were met by a courageous group of Americans, and a violent clash ensued and a brave young woman lost her life. And that’s when we heard the words from the president of the United States that stunned...
  • The Left’s Covid Memory Hole: Contrary to what Joe Biden says now, he and his team badly misjudged Covid-19.

    Last week’s Democratic convention sought to make four points: Joe Biden is a decent man, Donald Trump is horrible, the president bungled the pandemic and Mr. Biden would have handled it better because he grasped the threat from the start. Whatever you think of the first three, the last is a fabrication. But the former vice president likes to say it anyway. In June he claimed President Trump “did not listen to guys like me back in January saying we have a problem, a pandemic is on the way.” In May Mr. Biden said, “If he had listened to me...

    Vice President Biden responds to a question about the 17-year-old charged with committing the triple shooting which took place Tuesday night at a Kenosha, Wisconsin Black Lives Matter protest. Biden said Thursday during an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell that he is "very concerned" about the role organized white supremacist groups could be playing in unrest around the nation. "You saw, what got me involved in the race (I hadn't planned on running in the first place) is what happened to Charlottesville. These guys don't use a dog whistle, they use a bullhorn. they use a bullhorn. There's a 17-year-old...

    Richard Spencer, neo-Nazi, white supremacist, and organizer of the infamous 2017 Charlottesville riots, announced yesterday on Twitter that he will be voting for Joe Biden in the upcoming 2020 election.A Twitter user asked Spencer if he will be voting for Biden or sitting out the election, given his belief that “Biden/Kamala will be tougher on crime/BLM than Trump.” Spencer responded, “I plan to vote for Biden and a straight democratic ticket. It’s not based on ‘accelerationism’ or anything like that; the liberals are clearly more competent people.”Although Spencer claims that his endorsement is about competence and not ideology, his...

    A federal appeals court upheld the convictions of two white supremacists involved in the deadly 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va. but also determined that parts of a federal anti-riot law was too vague. The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that Benjamin Drake Daley and Michael Paul Miselis, members of the white supremacist Rise Above Movement, would see their convictions under the Anti-Riot Act stand because the court found the two had admitted to committing violent acts during the now-infamous rally. The two defendants, who traveled from California along with other members of their group, reportedly...

    Former vice president Joe Biden told Breitbart News on Thursday that President Donald Trump called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville “very fine people,” and insisted that Trump did not condemn them — despite the fact that the video and transcript of Trump’s remarks prove him wrong. The claim, known to conservative critics as the “Charlottesville hoax” or the “very fine people” hoax, is a core part of Biden’s stump speech, and a staple for many other Democratic presidential contenders as well. It is a key piece of “evidence” cited to support the claim that Trump is a racist who is inciting mass...

    The dramatically scaled-down Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, will be closed to the press, a convention spokesperson and Republican official familiar with the plans tell CNN. Reporters will not be allowed on site as RNC delegates vote to formally nominate President Donald Trump as the 2020 Republican presidential nominee, but the vote will be livestreamed, the Republican official said. The restriction is unprecedented in modern American political history, but Republican officials said they were forced to limit attendance due to social distancing restrictions imposed by the governor of North Carolina. "Given the health restrictions and limitations in place...

    An ANTIFA cell, Redneck Revolt, admitted to an undercover Project Veritas journalist that they used their black bloc tactics to foment terror at the infamous right-wing Charlottesville, N.C. rally in 2017 that ultimately turned deadly. Project Veritas released their Redneck Revolt exposé on Tuesday morning, which is part of their #ExposeANTIFA series that is rapidly going viral on social media. They are described in the video by a journalist as the “militia wing of ANTIFA.”

    Throngs of good people peacefully protesting in the streets over the death of George Floyd have been entirely drowned out by looters and rioters eager to twist any cause into their own private hobby horse for personal gain. But don’t get caught out mentioning the ugly element of it all — no matter how dramatic the endless footage on television might be of police cars burning, cops being murdered and storefronts being smashed open. The context of history is utterly irrelevant. Except when it isn’t. For example, the historical context of a great, wise, selfless and courageous general whose people...

    Gov. Ralph Northam, D-Va., signed a bill Saturday allowing individual localities to remove, relocate or contextualize Confederate statues and monuments within their communities. Localities can begin using these powers starting July 1. In 2016, first-year College student Zyahna Bryant — then a student at Charlottesville High School — petitioned Charlottesville City Council to remove the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and to rename Lee Park in Downtown Charlottesville. The following year, Charlottesville City Council voted to remove two statues — one of Robert E. Lee and one of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson — both Confederate generals. The decision was...

    The city of Charlottesville, Virginia, will not honor the birthday of Thomas Jefferson this spring for the first time since World War II. The Washington Post reports that the city will instead celebrate the demise of slavery this coming Tuesday. The holiday is known as Liberation and Freedom Day. It will commemorate when Union troops arrived in the city in March 1865 and freed enslaved people. The change is the latest example of this southern city reckoning with its history. It began when the city tried to remove its Confederate monuments. That inspired white supremacists to stage the deadly 2017...

    The city of Charlottesville, Va., will celebrate a holiday commemorating the end of slavery this year instead of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday. According to The Washington Post, Jefferson’s birthday had been recognized annually by the city for more than 70 years. The move comes months after the local city council voted to drop the official holiday celebrating his birthday, April 13, in place of Liberation and Freedom Day on March 3, which marks the day in 1865 when Union troops emancipated slaves. Three of the council’s four members voted in favor of taking Jefferson’s birthday off the calendar. Kathy Galvin, the...

    A white nationalist who ran for the U.S. Senate in Florida and was a featured speaker during the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was arrested on charges of kidnapping, domestic violence and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence. Augustus Sol Invictus, 36, was arrested Monday at a Florida mall by Brevard County Sheriff’s deputies on a warrant issued out of South Carolina, the Miami Herald reported. Jail records described him as an “out of state fugitive.” The Herald noted that news of the arrest was first reported on Twitter by the journalist Nick Martin,...

    Two years ago, James Fields plowed through a crowd of counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. He killed a 32-year-old woman named Heather Heyer, injured dozens of others and put the entire nation on edge. His weapon of choice: a gray 2010 Dodge Challenger. Now, the Charlottesville Police Department has removed from service the last Dodge Challenger in its fleet, the department said in a news release on Thursday. The city will dispose of the vehicle before the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2020, according to the release. “This is clearly a reminder for...
