Sons of 1776


Last night was yet another debate among 2020 Democratic hopefuls.

Americans had to suffer as these liberal elitists argued with each other over every issue imaginable. Some candidates attacked another over age. One made a bizarre promise to 10 Americans. But one thing was clear after the dust settled: Democrats are in bad shape.

I know you probably didn’t watch last night’s debates. I mean, there are so many other more important things you can do on a Thursday night. Like getting your teeth drilled. But ABC News hosted the third debates among rich, left-wing liberal elitists who think they know better than you about everything.

The event was supposed to give Democrats a chance to discuss important issues and show the country why they are better than President Trump. Instead, the party appeared childish as greedy candidates fought for attention.

Long-simmering policy disputes between Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and a slew of other candidates exploded into the open during Thursday night’s Democratic primary debate, as the candidates — often with raised voices — laid bare their fundamental disagreements on “Medicare-for-all,” immigration and more.

Intermittent efforts by some candidates to show unity and keep the heat on President Trump repeatedly failed, with most striving instead to score an aggressive debate “moment” onstage in Houston. [Source: Fox News]

At one point Mayor Pete tried to bring unity to the group, only to be torched by Julian Castro. It was like a high school brawl. Anyone that opened themselves up got punched by their rivals.

It really shows you how the Democrats are not working together on anything. Perhaps they were never united. That shouldn’t be a surprise. A party that exploits identity politics and social justice doesn’t know the meaning of working together. To many Democrats, public office is a get-rich-and-famous-quick scheme.

Naturally, trying to unite to oust a sitting president is impossible.

At one point, Andrew Yang made a weird promise to 10 random families.

“I’m going to do something unprecedented tonight,” Yang said in his opening statement. “My campaign will now give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families – someone watching this at home right now. If you believe that you can solve your own problems better than any politician go to and tell us how $1,000 a month will do just that.” [Source: Fox News]

Uh… what? What does that have to do with debating the issues? And what about the 100 million other American families?

Joe Biden once again leaned on his time in Barack Obama’s administration. We know, Joe, you were vice president. Once upon a time, that would have made you a shoo-in. Maybe you should have run in 2016. Trying to milk you connection with Obama isn’t working. If that’s all you got, perhaps you should just throw in the towel now.

Castro pounced on Biden’s words, going as far as criticizing his age.

“I’m fulfilling the legacy of Barack Obama, and you’re not,” Castro said… “You just said two minutes ago they would have to buy in. Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?” Castro asked. Some commentators said Castro’s jab was an improper, thinly veiled reference to Biden’s age. [Source: Fox News]

Pretty ugly stuff. Never did it seem that the candidates got along or would want to work together. Everyone was out for him or herself, just looking for that moment to outshine the rest. You have to keep in mind that these are all members of the same party. And they’re digging into each other like it’s a street brawl.

(Noticeably not discussed was Trump’s soaring economy and House Democrats’ pathetic impeachment attempts. Touchy subjects, Democrats?)

These candidates don’t seem to respect their own colleagues or care about how bad this makes them look to Americans. They are just thirsty for the nom—no matter the cost.

Makes you wonder what kind of leaders they’ve been—or will be. None of them deserve to be president.

It’s no secret that California has the highest homeless numbers in the entire country.

Yet, as more and more of their people are forced out on the streets, numerous cities and the state do nothing about it. The situation is only getting worse. So, President Trump is about to take matters into his own hands. Once again, he’s going to fix what the Democrats broke.

The homeless crisis on the West Coast is no joke. The far-left leaders in states like California, Washington, and Oregon passed laws that actually attracted homelessness to their states. West Coast states were the first to legalize recreational drug use. They are sanctuaries for illegal aliens. On top of that, cities like Los Angeles have made it illegal for cops to prevent people from living in public areas like sidewalks and parks.

The results speak for themselves. Homeless people are everywhere. These aren’t down-on-their-luck citizens just looking for a chance. Many are heavy drug users, who are pitching tents in the middle of streets, cooking meth right in the open.

Regular citizens can’t even walk to work. Many are harassed by drug-incensed homeless. The Democrats who run these cities do nothing. Some have even speculated that they created this problem intentionally, in order to assume even greater control over the region.

President Trump has had enough. And a new report suggests the White House is about to end this problem once and for all.

President Trump, disgusted with the inability of California’s Democrats to address the skyrocketing number of homeless people in California’s major cities, has ordered White House officials to address the issue…

“Top officials representing the White House and the Department of Housing and Urban Development arrived in California this week for a round of meetings. A particular focus has been the ‘Skid Row’ section of Los Angeles, officials said. The president is directly involved with the initiative, officials said, and has asked for updates.” [Source: Fox News]

President Trump is a man who prizes excellence. Imagine how upset he must get when he sees our once-beautiful West Coast cities covered in shanty towns of tents and cardboard boxes?

This crisis is 100% the Democrats’ fault. On top of bad policy, they have forced the cost of housing through the roof. “Energy efficient” regulation makes building new homes too costly. Local fees and taxes prevent renovations and rebuilding. In fact, in San Francisco, they have laws that prevent new development entirely.

Hmm… I wonder why they have a homeless crisis?

The people who want to live in a good, clean home can’t even find one!

President Trump is being directly updated on this situation. He’s even sent Justice Department representatives to look the matter. The DOJ is involved? That means there might be indictments coming very soon. I’m not surprised. The colossal problem created by the Democrats must point to fraud and crime.

Some of Trump’s plans include razing tent camps and building new temporary facilities. As well as improving existing facilities that help the homeless. I would also recommend Trump look at the insane regulations California forces on developers, which often result in abandoned projects.

“During a lengthy approval process (sometimes years), costs can rise to the point that projects are no longer tenable. Local fees, permitting, codes and regulations add 6 to 18 percent to construction costs. Uncoordinated city fees and requirements can add up to substantial sums that have unintended impacts on affordable housing.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Don’t be fooled. Those impacts were 100% intended. There are some Democrats who want Americans poor, miserable, and even homeless. You are far easier to control when you have nothing and need government support.

California Democrats, by design or neglect, have ruined their state. It seems only the president can step in and end the madness. But even then, it might be temporary, if CA residents continue to elect morons.

I guess, until they start voting for Republicans, the crisis will continue.

The Obama administration loved to dictate how you lived your life.

From private industry to buying household goods, the left-wing Democrat tried to control just about every aspect of American existence. week, Trump just announced yet another Obama regulation he just got rid of. It will save you a pretty penny.

Why do Democrats always think they know better than the rest of us? Whenever you hear a liberal politician or reporter speak, they talk as if anyone that doesn’t agree with them is some kind of moron. Honestly, the platform of the Democratic Party today is to force their will onto the American people. Even if we don’t like it.

For people who claim to love liberty so much, they really don’t like giving it to us. President Obama might have been the worst (excluding the group of 2020 candidates). He passed countless laws and executive orders that limited American business. His regulations—in many cases—made it impossible for some companies to make money. It was perhaps worse for the American consumer.

Instead of encouraging Americans to make the right decisions (for the environment, of course), he forced us to buy products that were more expensive. Sometimes, they were products we didn’t even like. Sure, they may have used less energy or were “better for the earth,” but they certainly weren’t better for our wallets. And the fact he was forcing us to do it, eroded that thing calls consumer choice.

And liberty.

Since Donald Trump’s entered office, he’s been doing away with just about every last Obama regulation. In fact, over a year ago, most liberal pundits said Trump has undone all of Obama’s major achievements. That’s something to celebrate.

But this week, he got rid of one of Obama’s most idiotic and annoying regulations. One that forced you to spend much more money on a basic, household need. I’m talking of course about light bulbs.

“They were forcing you to buy lightbulbs that cost a fortune, so I signed something a couple of days ago that gives you the right to use the incandescent light,” [Trump] said. “Much less expensive.”

Last week, the Trump administration rolled back Barack Obama-era requirements for energy-efficient bulbs which threatened to phase out incandescent and halogen bulbs by January 2020 in favor of fluorescent or LED bulbs…

He ridiculed the new light energy-efficient bulbs for having dangerous toxins and gasses in them…

He explained that the rollback of the regulations would allow consumers to choose whether they wanted the new bulbs or not.

“You’re going to hopefully buy the new ones, but you can buy the old ones too, and you can save a lot of money and you can even look better,” he said. [Source: Breitbart]

President Trump rolled back a regulation that was forcing companies to phase out traditional light bulbs for more expensive—and potentially toxic—fluorescent bulbs.

Let’s face the facts. LED and CF bulbs might use less energy. But the upfront cost is much higher than regular bulbs. Americans should have the choice on which bulbs to use. So, why did Obama think he had the right to dictate that choice himself?

I use LED bulbs—when I can afford them. But I know there are millions of Americans who need to stretch their dollar at the grocery store. Should they really be forced to buy bulbs that cost twice, if not three or four times, more—just because it made Obama feel better?

I’m all for advancing technology, but let’s get real. Obama and the left just want to force their environmental agenda on us. They aren’t concerned with working families who have to pinch every penny. (Hell, during his administration, many of them couldn’t even find work!)

President Trump is doing us a big solid. He’s ending the kind of tyrannical policies that force us to obey the will of the left. Sure, you can buy LED bulbs. Or you can buy much cheaper ones. The choice should be yours, not theirs.

Now, which of the 2020 Democratic candidates will share that sentiment? Oh, none of them.

With Trump’s economy breaking records, 2020 Democratic candidates have an uphill battle.

So, many “experts” have been predicting a recession in order to give left-wing candidates a bump. But while they predict doom-and-gloom, the latest economic reports cast a very different picture. Maybe Democrats should just throw in the towel now.

Let’s get real for a minute here. So-called “experts” have been predicted Trump’s failure since he entered politics. When he was elected and started fixing our economy, those same people—liberals who work for the liberal news—said Trump’s plans ruin us.

Surprise, surprise, things are only getting better. President Trump’s America first plans have slashed regulations, lowered taxes, and brought jobs back to the country. The results speak for themselves.

Over the last two-and-a-half years, the American economy has been resurrected. And that’s after eight years of Obama’s deliberate attempts to weaken it. People are back to work. Earning more than ever before. Companies are investing in the United States. We even have energy dominance.

But today, so-called experts are predicting a recession. Based on what? Their desire for a Democratic president, honestly. Liberal pundits know neither Sanders nor Biden nor Warren nor any liberal candidate can promise an economy better than Trump’s. So, they are actively hoping for a recession so that Democrats can breathe a little easier.

Imagine being so hateful toward your country, that you’d want it to suffer just to beat a Republican.

These “experts” claim that Trump’s trade war with China will do us in. Really, the only group who will suffer from Trump’s tariffs on China, is China. Excuse me! I forgot all the left-wing Democrats who bow to China’s will over the good of the American people. They might also suffer, because their overlords are upset.

But their hopes for a recession don’t seem to be matching reality, as usual. The latest economic reports for August came out. And they’re not listening to the left’s demands.

The new jobs report is in and the verdict is clear — no one should believe a single word the Democrats say about the economy.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the number of people employed in August increased by a very impressive 590,000, pushing total employment to a record-high of nearly 157.9 million. The percentage of the population that was employed rose to 60.9 percent, the highest percentage since December 2008.

As a result, despite over 570,000 people joining the labor force, the unemployment rate held at 3.7 percent, near a 50-year low. Unemployment among African Americans and Hispanics also hit all-time lows last month, proving that the ongoing economic boom is still creating unprecedented opportunity for all U.S. workers. [Source: Fox News]

Woah. And that’s just for starters. Hourly earnings rose 3.2 percent since last year. That’s the first time wages increased by 3 percent since 2009.

Consumer spending hasn’t decreased, despite the left’s doom and gloom. Clearly, Americans are doing very well and aren’t afraid to spend the money they’re earning. All the fake news in the world about a recession hasn’t stopped Americans from working, taking home more pay, and spending it on what they need and want.

Think back to 2016. Obama himself said we were looking at decades of decline. “Those jobs aren’t coming back,” said the man who ruined our economy. Congress said we’d only add about 2 million new jobs between 2016-2019. Then Trump enters office. Thanks to him, we gained a whopping 6 million since 2016. Obama and Congress were way off.

And there’s no signs that anything is suddenly, mysteriously, going to change. We have this booming economy because Trump is putting American workers and employees first. He’s not bowing to globalism in the form of China. And he’s not bowing to corporations who want to exploit our country. He’s doing what he always promised to do: make American great again.

Democrats can’t handle that, so they’re lying plain and simple. They can’t compete with that also, so they’re using whatever scheme it takes to remove Trump from office.

But I have a failing none of it is going to work.

This week, the Board of Supervisors of San Francisco voted to designate the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization.” The insane vote was to pressure the federal government to do the same. In light of recent shootings, you’d think the rest of the left would join in to condemn the NRA. But major liberal news outlets came out with a response you wouldn’t expect.

Whenever a shooting occurs in our country, liberals are quick to blame the NRA. This organizations—founded after the Civil War to help arm black Americans against violence—is often blamed for the crimes of individuals. This, despite the fact that not once has a member of the NRA committed a mass shooting.

There are numerous organizations in this country that educate Americans on their Second Amendment rights. But as the biggest and most influential, the NRA is often the target of the left’s hate. I guess liberals believe that if they can take the NRA down, then the Second Amendment is vulnerable. Without the NRA fighting in D.C. for our right to bear arms, then perhaps Democrats can just do away with the whole thing.

More proof that the left is living in a dream world.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors, however, went even further than most liberals when they voted this week to label the NRA as a terrorist group. Insane, to be sure. But I’m sure they considered their move a watershed moment, one the rest of the left would praise. Not exactly. In fact, two major liberal outlets came out condemning their decision. For good reasons.

“It’s not the business of a county board of supervisors to designate terror organizations,” [Los Angeles Times columnist Michael McGough] wrote, adding that it’s also a First Amendment concern if officials try to blacklist contractors who work with the NRA…

Washington Post columnist Henry Olsen called the resolution “McCarthyism: pure and simple.”

He said that for the NRA is be a terrorist organization, it would have to “intentionally encourage and support the use of violent attacks on U.S. citizens with the intent of creating general fear so as to force submission to its political agenda.”

“The NRA clearly does not do that,” he said, sarcastically adding, “Congratulations, average NRA member: Your $30 one-year membership makes you a terrorist.” [Source: Fox News]

For years, we’ve had to put up with the hysterical dishonesty of the left. They’ve accused regular Americans of being bigots, Nazis, racists, and sexists, just for wearing MAGA hats. We’ve had to sit by as the media applauded Antifa, a group that violently assaults conservatives. We’ve almost gotten used to the left unfairly slandering us at every turn.

Branding the NRA as a terrorist group seemed almost inevitable, for a group of left-wing radicals that want to undermine everything we believe in (also known as Democrats). So, for two liberal publications to condemn this move is significant.

A “domestic terrorist organization” is one that directly supports and encourages the use of violence against Americans. Does that sound like the NRA to you? The NRA simple educates Americans on their Second Amendment rights. It helps them learn how to safely and responsibly own and use a firearm. That’s a far, far cry from terrorism.

But do you know what that does sound like? Antifa. This group most certainly encourages the use of violence against those they call “Nazis” and “fascists.” They brand anyone that supports Trump or backs conservative views a fascist, which gives them permission to use violence. That is the textbook definition of terrorism.

So, why isn’t San Francisco branding Antifa—a group that loves violence—as terrorists, instead of a group that simply wants to empower Americans? Seems like a huge contradiction, doesn’t it? The NRA wants to protect Americans. Antifa wants to hurt them.

Yet this San Francisco board wants to punish the one group, while rewarding the other. Kind of makes you wonder just what’s going on in those board members heads?

Maybe they want Americans defenseless and scared? Maybe they want them harassed and endangered, unable to defend themselves from attackers wearing masks?

Or at least, just the conservatives.

Barack and Michelle Obama have been accused of “deplorable behavior” by a Los Angeles entertainment for trying to hijack another preexisting company’s name for their own personal gain.

The name in question is Higher Ground Productions.

The legal team representing the Obamas filed a petition to cancel the trademark of an e-book publishing company called Higher Ground Enterprises, much to the chagrin of the publishing company.

“This is really deplorable behavior. I hope that the Obamas realize that these actions are not consistent with the values they preach and that they instruct their attorneys to immediately dismiss the petition,” attorney Larry Zerner told Fox News in a statement that was first given to The Hollywood Reporter.

Zerner has said that his client’s motive is not political, and rather simply an effort to preserve their name and avoid confusion.

According to Fox News, Zerner said that the “Obamas have known for almost a year” that their Higher Ground Productions trademark application was rejected by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office because it was too similar to his client’s Higher Ground Enterprises.

“Instead of simply picking another name, the Obamas’ lawyers have now filed a meritless petition to cancel my client’s trademark so they can take it for themselves,” Zerner said.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Eriq Gardner, who first reported the quarrel, noted that Michelle Obama famously claimed, “When they go low, we go high,” before taking a jab at the former first couple.

“Going high evidently includes a trademark fight,” Gardner wrote.

The Obamas launched Higher Ground in an effort to produce a diverse mix of content, which includes a scripted series, an unscripted series, a docuseries, as well as documentaries and features, according to a previous press release from Netflix. The company, however, has become quite the cash cow for the couple amassing seven projects thus far.

“Instead of simply picking another name, the Obamas’ lawyers have now filed a meritless petition to cancel my client’s trademark,” Zerner said.

The Obamas told the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office that their production company wouldn’t be mistaken for an e-book publisher despite the similar name.

“[T]he consumers of ‘media production services’ covered by the Application are likely to be highly sophisticated,” the Obamas’ team said in a letter to the Trademark Office, according to THR. “Media production services are generally offered not to individual consumers but to commercial entities and professionals in their field.”

The letter continued: “Indeed, Applicant has entered a deal with Netflix in connection with its media production services. Such customers, whether multi-billion-dollar media companies or smaller commercial entities in need of media production services, will exercise the height of care in selecting a media production company and are highly unlikely to be confused by a photographer or e-book publisher — particularly when the other party uses a distinguishable mark.”

However, the U.S. Trademark Office deemed the two companies too similar so the petition to cancel was filed.

“In a petition to cancel, the Obamas essentially allege that [Higher Ground Enterprises boss Hanisya] Massey doesn’t deserve a trademark because ‘Higher Ground Enterprises’ wasn’t actually in use at the time of its 2016 registration,” Gardner wrote. “Her trademark is in Class 41, which includes entertainment services.”

Ah, those poor, pathetic House Democrats.

After trying several times already to impeach Trump, they’ve failed again and again.

They were hoping the Mueller report would give them all they needed to accuse Trump and remove him from office. That didn’t work. A clutch of Democrats is still trying to take down Trump. But even that is failing.

Let’s get this out of the way: there is zero evidence supporting impeachment of Donald Trump. Democrats are pushing this idea, though, for several reasons. First, it was to undo the results of the 2016 Election. They couldn’t believe America picked Trump over that old lady, so they just wanted to get rid of him.

Then, they used impeachment to get win voters in the 2018 Midterms. But it didn’t do much to help, what with their “blue wave” failing big time.

Now, they hope to impeach Trump to give them a boost in 2020. Not one of their candidates have what it takes to beat Trump. So, Democrats think they can remove Trump and have a better shot at beating Mike Pence.

But the big problem is, Trump has been cleared of any wrongdoing that would result in impeachment. Mueller’s report and testimony proved Trump never colluded with Russia. And if he didn’t collude with Russia, he had no reason to obstruct justice.

That’s not good enough for House Democrats, who are now trying to find a new reason to impeach him.

The committee is planning to investigate payments former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made to two women who allege they had affairs with the president more than a decade ago, and whether the investigation into Cohen was obstructed. [Source: Breitbart]

What, this again? Michael Cohen is in prison because he used campaign funds to pay off women who made wild claims. Even Cohen, who tried to betray Trump, admitted Trump never told him to do such a thing. Yet Democrats are hoping to use an already settled matter to impeach the president.

Pathetic isn’t even a good enough word for House Democrats.

But even as they mount a wimpy effort to nail Trump, they just don’t have the support within their own party to get it done.

Moderate Democrats are so far resisting the call to support impeachment, even as House Judiciary Committee Democrats double down on efforts to investigate President Trump for impeachable offenses…

More than 130 Democrats have come out in support of impeachment in some form, crossing the threshold of half the Democrat caucus. However, more than 100 Democrats either oppose or have not clarified where they stand on impeachment, many of them vulnerable Democrats…

Fewer than ten out of the 42 Democrats listed in the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s “frontline program” — those most vulnerable in their re-election campaigns — have come out in support of impeachment, according to Time. [Source: Breitbart]

Democrats really are petty, aren’t they? Instead of trying to work with Trump and the GOP to help Americans, they are searching for any possible reason to impeach him. Even though they know the Senate will never back their attempts—nor has any poll shown Americans support impeachment.

They’d rather waste time and money persecuting a president working to make America great. House Democrats don’t care about the well-being of Americans. These are the same people who turn a blind eye to illegal immigration at the border, after all. The same people who support sanctuary cities, which put criminals ahead of Americans.

And they’d rather spend their time in D.C. looking for a smoking gun to accuse the president, than support measures to fix healthcare, secure better trade deals, provide relief to veterans, or protect our border.

Nope, instead they are trying to find anything to pin on Trump, so he won’t win in 2020.

But the sad reality is that they can’t even get most of their own party members to back this initiative. Too many moderate Democrats, from districts that have supported Trump, worry about losing their seats in 2020.

The left can’t even unify its own party. Makes you wonder why they’re still around, doesn’t it?

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to discuss who he feels is the biggest threat to him being reelected as President, but it’s not a person.

Trump suggested Monday morning that his campaign’s biggest concern is not Democrats but rather the “Fake News Media.”

“The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY! They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do ‘fact checking’ anymore, and are only looking for the ‘kill.’ They take good news and make it bad. They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt..” he told his Twitter followers.

Trump added in a follow-up tweet: “….The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media.”

The president did not cite any specific media outlet, but a report in Axios Saturday suggested the Trump campaign is intent on making Big Tech’s supposed conservative bias a focal part of Trump’s 2020 reelection bid.

The report cited an anonymous source inside the administration and included quotes from the official.

Many legacy media outlets have been on the receiving end of Trump’s barbs throughout the past year as a result of the fact that they have spent the majority of Presidency trying to villainize him. He’s also gone after Fox News, a news outlet generally perceived as supportive of Trump and other conservatives, that has been seemingly sliding towards the left as of late.

“Never thought I’d say this but I think [John Roberts] and [Gillian Turner] [Fox News] have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN [and] NBC! Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?” Trump wrote in January of Fox News coverage of his ongoing negotiations for a southern wall.

Trump’s true supporters however are fully on his side. An Axios report states that his political allies are trying to raise at least $2 million to investigate reporters and editors of The New York Times, The Washington Post and other outlets, according to the three-page fundraising pitch reviewed by Axios.

The full list of “primary targets” to be looked into listed on the pitch deck includes:

“CNN, MSNBC, all broadcast networks, NY Times, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, and all others that routinely incorporate bias and misinformation in to their coverage. We will also track the reporters and editors of these organizations.”

This would bring about an escalation in tensions between the President and his mortal enemies in the media, but a necessary one in order for a President who will likely go down as the most unnecessarily hated by the media to win a second term.

Trump’s war on the media will play a crucial role in his efforts to win a reelection. One things for sure, they truly are his number one opponent.

As we get closer and closer to the 2020 Election, the bloated Democratic field is finally shrinking. Candidates that are polling below double digits are getting desperate, eager to stay alive. One candidate is trying to use any and all tragedies to keep his name afloat. In the wake of recent shootings, he made a major promise to all law-abiding gun owners. Shocking, for a man from Texas.

Robert Francis O’Rourke, who often calls himself “Beto,” is rapidly losing ground in the Democratic primaries. For a time, long ago, it seemed like he had a shot. But over recent months he’s done nothing to impress both the media and liberal voters. He’s polling around 2%. That’s far below the threshold needed to appear in the next round of “Let’s Torture Americans Show”—I mean, Democratic debates.

O’Rourke doesn’t have much to inspire Democrats to support him. After his flash in the pan appearance, he doesn’t seem to have any ideas or plans to keep the left-wing media interested.

So, he’s jumping on recent, horrible events to stir up some attention. And it seems to be working, but not in the way he’s hoped.

There have been a few shootings over the summer. Democrats from all corners of the country have decided the only solution is to pass stricter gun control laws—on top of the mountain of gun laws we already have. Funny how they always ignore the real solution to gun violence: arming responsible, law-abiding citizens.

No, their plan is to take more guns from safe citizens, making them vulnerable to criminals and monsters.

O’Rourke has jumped on this bandwagon to grab more attention for his failing campaign. But he’s going beyond many of his rivals by making a major problem. If elected, he’s going to confiscate every last semi-automatic firearm from American citizens.

Far-left Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke announced over the weekend that if he is elected president, he intends to confiscate tens of millions of semi-automatic firearms from law-abiding Americans.

O’Rourke made the remarks while campaigning in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday when he was asked by a reporter how he plans to address peoples’ fears that the government is going to come and take their semi-automatic firearms.

O’Rourke responded: “I want to be really clear, that’s exactly what we are going to do. Americans who own [semi-automatic firearms] will have to sell them to the government.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Oh, he’s going to force you to sell your semi-automatic firearms to the government. That sounds perfectly legal and not at all a violation of our Second Amendment rights!

This Democrat’s solution to gun violence is to force Americans to give up their guns to the federal government. Not once has he considered that law-abiding citizens who are properly trained in how to use a gun can be a powerful deterrent to gun violence.

He—like the rest of the gun-grabbing socialists on the left—conveniently ignore the many accounts where a person intent on causing harm was thwarted, because a good guy with a gun stopped them. O’Rourke never considers that disarming American citizens would make them far less safe from countless dangers.

That’s because O’Rourke—and the rest of the Democratic Party—isn’t interested in your safety. They are only interested in imposing socialism/communism onto America. Look at all the past communist dictatorships throughout history. The first thing they did when they seized power is confiscate the weapons of the people.

Then, there was no opposition when they erased freedom of speech or religion. Or when they took over private industry. Or when they persecuted or oppressed the people.

Sounds grim, but that’s the kind of America the left wants today. They are no longer patriot, capitalist-loving citizens. They are would-be Marxists who want us to go the way of the Soviet Union.

O’Rourke pretends it’s for our good. He’ll take our guns—and even pay for them.

Sorry, Francis, but no matter how much money you want to pay us—where not selling our freedom.

Joe Biden has had a pretty rough campaign so far. He’s been stumbling from one gaffe to another. He seems to be confusing dates and times, not to mention names and locations. Some of his gaffes are so bad, Democrats are questioning if he should even be running. But the latest “story” he’s told may go well beyond a simple flub.

At a recent event, Joe Biden told a story about a brave Navy captain who risked his life to save another man. His audience was enthralled by the story. Biden claims the man rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to save another soldier. Biden claims he was so impressed by the heroic actions, he travelled Afghanistan just to pin a star on the man’s chest. But the amazing serviceman refused.

The problem? The story 100% made up.

The Post succinctly commented, “Except almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.” The Post delineated how Biden conflated different stories in order to create his whopper, crediting interviews with more than a dozen U.S. troops, their commanders and Biden campaign officials to help them discover the truth. [Source: Daily Wire]

Not sure what’s really going on here. Probably most people don’t. Apparently, Biden went to Afghanistan in 2008 as a senator. He met with a 20-year-old Army specialist, not a Navy captain. Biden never pinned any medal on the man–he later got the Medal of Honor at the White House.

Is this a simple case of Biden once again confusing things? Does this suggest the former VP is having a hard time keeping track of important details? Or is he, like so many politicians, making stuff up to make him look good?

Turns out, Biden has a history of inventing similar stories. He talked about a Navy captain climbing down a “200 foot” ravine during a WWII memorial event. In 2016, whiling helping Hillary Clinton, he talked about an Army captain who pulled a soldier out of a burning vehicle in Iraq. The man had a similar response as the Navy captain in refusing a medal.

Biden also employed the story of the fictitious Navy captain during a World War II memorial event in Australia in 2016. In that telling, the captain “climbed down about 200 feet” into a ravine in Afghanistan to rescue a comrade. Then, while stumping for Hillary Clinton that same year, Biden told the story of an Army captain who pulled a soldier out of a burning vehicle in Iraq but resisted the resulting medal. “He died. He died, Mr. Vice President,” Biden recalled the officer saying. “I don’t want the medal.” [Source: National Review]

What’s going on? It’s odd to think these stories make Biden look good. Unless he’s trying to get listeners to associate himself with these servicemen. Or maybe he’s trying to appear patriotic by praising these soldiers. But the obvious distortion of facts and details is what’s really troubling.

Recently, Biden confused outgoing British PM Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher–who was PM in the 1980s. Biden couldn’t even keep track of the dates and locations of two recent shootings, mixing up El Paso and Dayton. It was only a few days later and he already messed those up!

What does this all mean? Joe Biden has a history of gaffes, but these are all adding up. The story about the Navy captain is the most upsetting.

Either he’s blatantly making up stories, essentially lying to Americans. He thinks he can pull a fast one on his adoring public, those voters who bother to show up at his events. Or, his gaffes suggest something is wrong with the former vice president.

Is his memory slipping? Is it just a product of old age? Or is Biden suffering from something more severe?

I think we ought to know. He does want to become president, after all. But, as in the case of Hillary Clinton, Biden might never confess that he’s suffering from something.

Good enough reason not to vote for him.
