Ready for Round 2: Why we Need Hillary
more than ever
Posted by 4250Luis 7/20/2024 10:17:09 PM Post Reply
The strongest argument against replacing President Joe Biden as the 2024 Democratic nominee is the notion that no suitable successor exists. But there is, and not just a good one but one of the most qualified people ever to run for the office: Hillary Rodham Clinton. For what feels like longer than two weeks, we have publicly and endlessly debated about Biden’s candidacy. Democrats have repeatedly called on him to make a decision. It is damaging, divisive and only serves to further improve Donald Trump’s chances.
Officials Admit the Biden Administration
Denied Security Requests by Agents Assigned
to Protect Donald Trump

The biggest question inside the investigation of the Trump assassination attempt, is the thing no one has mentioned. Why have there been no daily press briefings? ♦ Where are the official 10:00am press briefing updates every day on the investigation? ♦ Where are the official press conferences from the Secret Service, FBI and law enforcement answering questions and providing information from the prior days investigative results? ♦ Where are the organized and official updates to let the American people know what has been found out about the assassination attempt on President Donald Trump?

Democratic strategist Maria Cardona, who earlier this year propagated the “bloodbath” hoax against former President Donald Trump (see the video below), now claims immigrants are horrified by Trump’s RNC speech. [Tweet, video] Appearing on CNN this Friday, she dubiously claimed that she received a flood of text messages from her “immigrant” friends after Trump spoke about ILLEGAL MIGRATION at the Republican National Convention. “Oh my God, Donald Trump just put a target on my family’s back,” the text messages allegedly read, she said Friday. “As an immigrant Latina myself, I feel that way too,” she added.

Top officials at the U.S. Secret Service repeatedly denied requests for additional resources and personnel sought by Donald Trump’s security detail in the two years leading up to his attempted assassination at a rally in Pennsylvania last Saturday, according to four people familiar with the requests. Agents charged with protecting the former president requested magnetometers and more agents to screen attendees at sporting events and other large public gatherings Trump attended, as well as additional snipers and specialty teams at other outdoor events, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive security discussions.

Homeland Security Secretary (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas defended the presence of women serving in the United States Secret Service, noting that they “deserve our gratitude and respect.” In a statement released on Saturday, Mayorkas wrote that the “statements questioning the presence of women in law enforcement,” in the aftermath of the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump were “baseless and insulting.” Mayorkas’s statement comes a week after an assassination attempt on Trump at a rally in Pennsylvania. The former president was shot by a “bullet that pierced the upper part” of his right ear after 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks opened fire from the rooftop of a nearby building,

Secret Service officials refused to provide Donald Trump with additional security in the two years prior to last weekend's assassination, according to a report. The damning report has revealed that the ex-president's request for more agents and magnetometers at events he attended was denied. Four insiders told The Washington Post that each request was rejected by senior officials. The higher-ups of the Secret Service allegedly claimed that the agency lacked the resources Trump was asking for. It has also been revealed that Trump was receiving less protection, after losing the election and his bid for a second term in 2020, than other

The Democrat party is in disarray as they try to push Joe Biden out of the way. Obama and Pelosi are orchestrating damaging leaks to the media in an effort to drive Biden out of the 2024 race. Joe Biden is currently fuming at his Rehoboth Beach house as Democrats plan a coup against him with rumors of an open convention. Kamala Harris is jumping on donor calls and rallying supporters in North Carolina as Biden hides at his beach compound. The media is pushing Kamala Harris as the perfect alternative to Joe Biden. However, an author floated twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton as the perfect Biden replacement in an op-ed for The Hill.

GRAND Rapids - Former President Donald Trump said Saturday immigration wound up being his guardian angel. Speaking at his first campaign rally since surviving an assassination attempt, Mr. Trump told the raucous crowd gathered here if he had not turned his head at the rally in Bulter, Pennsylvania, last week to highlight a chart showing the influx of illegal immigrants under President Biden he would be dead. “I owe immigration my life,” Mr. Trump said, adding he is going to be keeping that chart close. “I think I am going to sleep with it tonight.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) told a Late Night with Stephen Colbert audience on Tuesday that Republicans and Democrats should ban “assault weapons” in a show of unity. She made clear she wants to ban such firearms “nationwide” and she posited the ban as a proper response in the wake of the failed assassination attempt on Donald Trump. Warren posted to X: [Tweet, video] Among the X users who responded to Warren’s post, one wrote, “Better idea, ban #DemocratViolence Nationwide and the problem goes away immediately!” Another wrote, “Why are you so concerned about if people should be able to defend themselves or not?

It Looks Like Kamala’s Call with Democrat
Donors Was a Disaster

We reported on Friday that Kamala Harris was going to have a conference call with big Democrat donors. The meeting was put together on short notice. However, at the time of the report, it was not clear what message she was going to deliver to them. The donors who have largely funded the Biden-Harris campaign were so spooked by Biden’s disastrous debate performance that they stopped writing checks and threatened to withhold donations unless Joe Biden was replaced. Would Harris encourage them to calm down and unite behind Biden, or was another message going to be delivered? Perhaps a coup? An email from tech billionaire Reid Hoffman

Every day millions of parents put their children under the care of public school teachers, administrators, and support staff. Their trust, however, is frequently broken by predators in authority in what appears to be the largest ongoing sexual abuse scandal in our nation’s history. Given the roughly 50 million students in U.S. K-12 schools each year, the number of students who have been victims of sexual misconduct by school employees is probably in the millions each decade, according to multiple studies. Such numbers would far exceed the high-profile abuse scandals that rocked the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts.

The MAGA influencer who was a front-row witness to the July 13 attempted assassination of President Donald Trump in Butler, Pennsylvania, told RedState in an exclusive interview at the Republican National Convention why he released his own videos from the shooting at the rally. “I knew I had it," the influencer known as Brick Suit said. "I hadn't looked at it since I shot it." The MAGA influencer said he always knew that there could be an attempt to take down the president. “At some point, you realize this is always a possibility. I didn't think I would witness it,” he said.

Israeli fighter jets struck Houthi military targets in the area of Hodeidah port in Yemen on Saturday, the Israeli military said, a day after a drone launched by the Iranian-backed group hit Israel's economic hub Tel Aviv. Al-Masirah TV, the main television news outlet run by Yemen's Houthi movement, reported that the strikes were directed against oil facilities in the port and caused fatalities. Hodeidah residents told Reuters by phone that explosions were heard throughout the city during an intensive bombardment. "The fire that is currently burning in Hodeidah is seen across the Middle East and the significance is clear," Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant said in a statement.
Biden ‘Seething’ At Pelosi As Campaign

Nancy Pelosi wants him out. Chuck Schumer wants him out. Even Barack Obama, who may have been the man in real charge of this entire administration, wants him out. Americans who are tired of suffering the nation’s slow and seemingly inexorable decline certainly want him out. But Old Joe Biden is digging in his heels. He and his dwindling coterie of supporters are the last people on the planet who still insist that their man is sharp-witted, energetic, and ready to serve until he is a hale and hearty 86 years old. And so it looks as if the Democrats are stuck with Joe. Or are they?

Joe Biden's campaign chair Jen O'Malley Dillon cautioned campaign staffers not to watch cable news to prevent further demoralization among staff. If it's this bad now, what's it going to be like in 4 months? "Don't watch cable news all the time," O'Malley Dillon told her staff, according to Axios, "That is not the real world. The real world is the voters that are standing with us, the delegates that are with us, and we're going to weather this because of this organization." All's well. Remain calm. "When you give me polls, I'm going to give you direct voter contact," O'Malley Dillon said, sources told Fox News.
The Biden Family Fighting the DNC Apparatus

…. That’s the essential message coming from the latest developments per the framework pushed by the professionally democrat. The Washington Post (CIA/IC) frames the battle of the selfish Biden family against the goals of an altruistic DNC corporation (Obama/Pelosi). The wounds being suffered by the magnanimous heir apparent Kamala are unfair; at least, that’s the useful presentation for those who control the left-wing of the club. Joe Biden is essentially, at his core, the purist manifestation of a Democrat. The internecine battle underway was created by the Corporation putting one of their toxic generals in charge of the organization.
Chinese-Owned EV Company Funded Dem Campaigns: Report replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 7/20/2024 4:24:16 PM Post Reply
A Chinese electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer’s U.S. subsidiary has reportedly lavished many tens of thousands of dollars on climate-crazed Democrats’ campaigns. BYD USA and its top executive Stella Li have been pouring cash into Democrat organizations and candidates for a decade, The Daily Caller reported. In China, the government practices “civil-military fusion,” where everything in the economic and tech spheres is accessible to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) military. Just because BYD USA is an American subsidiary, don’t believe for a second it’s not connected to and answerable to the US-hating CCP and its military. Among the BYD beneficiaries are Joe Biden and Gavin Newsom, according to The Daily Caller.

The big names — like Donald Trump and veep nominee J.D. Vance — are devouring the headlines coming out of the Republican National Convention. Fair enough, but some of the other speeches from fascinating, non-marquee figures have been trenchant and powerful as they illuminate the forces driving Trump’s ascent. Take Anne Fundner. The California mom’s son died in 2022 after taking pills laced with fentanyl — every parent’s nightmare. In her speech she directly called out the people responsible: “I hold Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, the border czar — what a joke — and Gavin Newsom and every Democrat who supports open borders responsible for the death of my son.”
Maher: We Don’t Need In-Depth Investigation

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that President Joe Biden should have already fired Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle and there isn’t any need for an in-depth investigation to make that determination. Maher also argued that people have been fired for less. Maher began by asking Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who was appearing in his personal capacity, “Should Joe Biden have fired the Secret Service head? I don’t understand that.” Buttigieg responded, “I’m not in on all the details of the homeland security side. I know there’s a really serious after-action report in process and a whole lot of scrutiny going on there.

Hilarious footage captured former First Lady Melania Trump wincing as Kid Rock performed at the Republican National Convention. The singer and outspoken conservative took the stage in Milwaukee to warm up the crowd before Donald Trump gave the convention's primetime speech. But his re-made version of 2000 hit 'American Bad A**' - with lyrics changed to include references to Trump - appeared to fail to impress the former First Lady. Melania grimaced as Kid Rock pumped his fist in the air and chanted 'fight', an apparent nod to Trump's iconic reaction to his assassination attempt a week ago.

Robert Kennedy Jr. stated that Biden is more dangerous to democracy than Donald Trump. Robert is misguided; Biden is senile and does not pose a threat to anyone. It’s the entire Democrat party that’s the greatest threat to our democracy. During the 1960 presidential debates, Robert’s uncle, John Kennedy, highlighted the ideological difference between the Democrat and Republican parties. “We have a different philosophy for achieving the same objectives,” he said (emphasis added). The times have changed, and the modern Democrat party is not the party of John Kennedy. It does not offer a different philosophy for achieving the same objectives. Intead, for years, it has had a different philosophy and

HONOLULU— David Letterman will headline a fundraiser with President Joe Biden in 10 days with Hawaii Gov. Josh Green, a sign that his campaign is forging ahead despite continued calls for the president to bow out of the 2024 race. The fundraiser on July 29 will be at the home of a family friend on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, Green told The Associated Press Friday. It will feature the longtime late-night host, plus Biden and first lady Jill Biden. The campaign has at least 10 other fundraising events over the last 10 days of July.
