Rex Murphy … A good point …

All National Public Radio hosts talk as if they are standing in a nursery, afraid to wake the baby up, or trying to pacify a distempered hound. Their soft tones, slow utterance and hushed breathlessness are meant to convey that NPR is a sanctum, a cathedral of reason and restraint, and that what comes via such delicately modulated, church-whisper voices must be true.

Nowhere was that voice so needed than in the extraordinary statement it put out about the Hunter Biden story, which has already been banned by Facebook and Twitter: “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions. And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”

There’s a lot of “we” in that statement. Who are these “we” who are so certain of a story they won’t report on? Do they have soothsayers on call? Have they disinterred Nostradamus as NPR’s preferred fact-checker? Or is this the kind of certitude that only comes from being “woke” and terminally, adamantly anti-Trump?

NPR, in this instance, is merely a camp follower of the much less austere Twitter, which has blocked the New York Post’s reports on Hunter and Joe Biden from the beginning. And when Twitter and public radio are of the same mind on anything, it is fair to observe how very little mind is involved.

NPR is also at one with the mainstream American media — broadcast and print — in choosing to disregard the revelations of the Biden family’s dealings, and most especially, any troubling revelations about Joe Biden himself. Such magisterial restraint by the free press, such scruple, such commanding integrity.

The paternalism of NPR’s edict is arrogance distilled. It is also cosmically inconsistent, for NPR is never so circumspect when the band is playing a tune it likes. It has feasted voraciously on the much uglier stories, with none of the substance of the Biden yarn, that were hurled at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, for example.

Recall all the hideous allegations that felon-lawyer Michael Avenatti threw during the Kavanaugh hearings. Did NPR tremble so virtuously then? Did its staff issue strident disclaimers about “pure distractions,” or “politically driven” stories” regarding that mud-encrusted slander ?…

I was hoping for better entertainment !!! …

The first televised debate between President Donald J. Trump and his opponent, former vice president Joe Biden, took place on Tuesday night, Sept. 29.

Each candidate was given two minutes to respond to a question. Then there could be an open-ended back and forth.  In typical formal debates, response time is also limited, but the two sides had agreed to this open-ended approach. Both candidates often talked over each other. Each interrupted the other, but President Trump was the more aggressive interrupter of the two.

Now , I usually await these debates with eager anticipation ( and watch the WHOLE thing  ) but I could only stomach an hour and 5 minutes of this one …

Both candidates were predominantly ignorant , showed no decorum expected from ‘ Statesmen ‘ and the moderator , seasoned ‘ newsman Chris Wallace had not only quickly presented his bias against President Trump , he lost control of the debate within minutes of its’ commencement …

And the you have the ‘ media take ‘ that follows …

I’ll just point out how the so called ‘ reporting ‘ afterward is inconsistent to what I witnessed live …

President Trump came on stage looking grouchy and tired.  Former vice president Biden came in his casual street persona, greeting the president by saying “man.” and sounding just plain spent !!! …

There were some exceptional low points from both sides and from the moderator.  Chris Wallace asked President Trump about his taxes, basing his question upon a story that had just appeared in the New York Times.

This is where Chris first shows his bias … He should have avoided issues that are completely for a different venue than a debate between two candidates vision for the direction of the country …

This was extremely irrelevant. What does the amount of money Trump paid in taxes have to do with his re-election or non-re-election ? Moreover, the question was based on a newspaper story that reviewed his taxes and found nothing illegal.  So what if his lawyers beat the system and found some good write-offs and deductions for him?  Isn’t that why people go to professionals to have their taxes completed?  Moreover, the Times article was based on information illegally obtained, since tax forms are confidential, and it is illegal for the government or anyone to share the information with a third party.  Wallace’s question was underwriting the legitimacy of the Times article, which the said article did not deserve.

If Wallace wants to go there with Trump , why not here with Biden ;

It’s well known that Biden pushed the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, the Ukraine company on whose Board of Directors Hunter Biden sat, to drop the case or lose U.S. aid in the amount of $1 billion.  Then he also had the prosecutor fired.

Just note , Biden bragged about it in a television interview … GOTCHA !!! …

Biden ruthlessly blamed the president over and over again during the debate for events that had nothing to do with Trump’s judgment or behavior — namely, the COVID pandemic and the riots in many of our large, Democrat-controlled cities.  

The president did not create the virus and did nothing to bring it to our shores.  In fact, as he affirmed multiple times in the debate and on many previous occasions, he halted travel of non-Americans from China to the U.S. early on as news got about the apparently new and deadly disease.  Vice President Biden at that time called the president xenophobic, as did Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Trump attempted to make that point but couldn’t get a word in edgewise.

The action by the president vis-à-vis travel from China to the U.S. did more to prevent COVID deaths than any medical action that could have been taken, as he attempted to say.

Again , where was Wallace ? …

In summary , although this was a debate for the presidency of our country, it seemed more like a schoolyard argument between two aggressive personalities lacking a mature concern for policy … Hence my decision to pick up the remote , tune out the nonsense and retire for the evening …

This is from E. Jeffrey Ludwig , whom I agree with as he points this all out in his article … If you actually WATCHED the debate , roam around the internet and read the media takes on it … Start with the source above by clicking the link below for the rest of it …

Trump’s tax returns ? … I don’t GAF !!! …

For many politicians, so-called public “service” is a get-rich-quick scheme.

Let me just say for the record that I really don’t give a crap about President Trump’s tax returns. If you are using an accountant who doesn’t make full use of tax laws to ensure you pay the least possible amount in taxes, find a new accountant.

Trump’s tax returns matter to me about as much as a June Bug in July.

What bothers you more? The tax returns from a guy who didn’t spend his life in DC or how people who spend their lives in DC get so fabulously wealthy?

For many politicians, so-called public “service” is a get-rich-quick scheme.

Take Joe Biden. Dude has been in elected office for nearly a half century. And yet, according to his tax returns, Biden is a multi-millionaire.

As Julie Kelly pointed out last night on Twitter, in 2016, the Bidens earned $400K. But in 2017 and 2018, they made more than sixteen million dollars.

And that probably doesn’t include the tens of millions of dollars the Biden family has received through shady business deals in China, the Ukraine, and even Russia.

Then there’s Biden’s pal Barack Obama.

The Obamas left the White House and immediately inked a $60+ million dollar book deal. Then in 2018, they signed another multi-million dollar deal with Netflix.

And while I do not begrudge the Obamas making oodles of money after leaving office, it does irritate the living crap out of me that we, the American taxpayers, are still financially supporting the fabulously wealthy Obamas.

Barack Obama receives an annual Presidential Pension (plus expenditures) paid for by us.

In fact, in 2018, the former President cost taxpayers $1,153,000.00.

Let me repeat that.

Taxpayers had to fork over one million, one hundred and fifty-three thousand dollars to multi-millionaire Barack Obama in 2018.

Now, the Presidential Pension is only $205,700 a year for life. So what in the name of sweet fancy Moses was the additional $947,300.00 for?

The Obamas bought a massive estate on Martha’s Vineyard. But we need to pay for their “expenditures” to the tune of $947,300.00?!

AYFKM ?! …

Jeffrey Epstein's flight logs on his aircraft, including his 'Lolita Express' jet, have been subpoenaed, sparking fear among the rich and famous who partied with the pedophile

Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs on his aircraft, including his ‘Lolita Express’ jet, have been subpoenaed, sparking fear among the rich and famous who partied with the pedophile.

The Attorney General in the US Virgin Islands, where the billionaire had a home and is said to have carried out many of his horrific crimes, has demanded to see the logs which document the passengers on his aircraft.

The logs on his four helicopters and three planes span from 1998 until his suicide in prison last year.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died – Mother Jones

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that President Donald Trump’s next nominee to the Supreme Court will get a Senate vote, following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that President Donald Trump’s next nominee to the Supreme Court will get a Senate vote, following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

McConnell’s vow capped off a statement his office released just hours after Ginsburg’s death from pancreatic cancer. It’s due to immediately kick off a bitter political fight over replacing the pioneering justice less than two months before November’s presidential election, and four months before the end of Trump’s first term.

Multiple reports following her death also suggested Ginsburg addressed the issue during her final days. The reports say Ginsburg dictated a statement to her granddaughter, which said Ginsburg’s “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Here’s why …

“Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year,” McConnell said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer urged Trump and the Republican Party to wait until after Trump’s term ends in January before her replacement is selected.

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice,” Schumer wrote. “Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

Hold it Chucky , what happens if ( when ! ) Trump wins a second term ? … How does the Supreme Court operate with an even number of justices ideologically split right down the middle ( Republican / Democrap ) ? …

Schumer’s tweet was a nearly word-for-word echo of McConnell’s own statement following Scalia’s death.
.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden echoed Schumer in his own statement.

Yeah , but in his senility Joe ‘ C’mon man ‘ Biden actually said it right !!! ;

“Let me be clear: The voters should pick a President, and that President should select a successor to Justice Ginsburg,” he said on Twitter.

That acknowledges the very real possibility that ‘ the voters ‘ may choose Trump once again …

I tell ya … The Dems and the BSMedia will be goin’ berserk on this one for months !!! …

The picture perfect definition of ‘ STOOPID ‘ !!! …

The level of stupidity of this nonsense is so high I felt compelled to file it firstly in my ShitzUNgiggles category …

Found at

There’s stupid, there’s pig-stupid, and there’s Oregon.

That’s the astonishing picture we have here where a suspect, Domingo Lopez, Jr., 45, who had been arrested just 12 hours earlier for setting fires, got somehow let out and proceeded to commit to more arson, with the Antifa weapon of choice, the Molotov cocktail, as if that couldn’t be foreseen.  The second time around, he set six fires.

Who needs global warming with guys like this?

The big fail here was from the justice system, which let the known firebug, freshly caught in the act, out and about.  Obviously, there’s something going on with this.  How could anyone in authority be this stupid?

It’s sheer lunacy to let a caught-in-the-act arsonist out at a time of high fires and not guess he’ll go back to the same thing he was caught doing earlier.

Who came up with the idea of letting this freak out ? …
