WASHINGTON – Over 100 Black women leaders and activists slammed comments made of Black women being considered to be Joe Biden's running mate as racist and sexist in an open letter published Wednesday. Sen. Kamala Harris, Rep. Karen Bass, former US Ambassador Susan Rice, Rep. Val Demings and former Georgia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams have all been floated as possible vice presidential contenders for Biden. The letter comes as Biden is nearing an announcement on his vice presidential pick. It also comes just days after a Virginia mayor made a Facebook post that read, “Joe Biden has just announced

Comments:

They seemed to be blasting at a whole lot of targets at once. I suspect that, behind the scenes, they dislike how Old Joe is dangling the VP carrot before a bunch of black woman to see which one is most obedient.

This is really laughable. IF black women or so tough, why do they need this special protection from criticism?

>"What we are seeing is that these women are being subjected to treatment that others in the process, and men before that has been in the same process, haven't been subjected to..." You mean, like Clarence Thomas, Robert Bork, and Brett Kavanaugh?

Every person being considered for VP is there because of their gender and race. Not qualifications. None of them are qualified. Their consideration is purely racist and sexist. The critics are racist and sexist? So are the people involved in the selection.

Who are these ding-dong black leaders and why to they think that blacks have any interest in following them? Heck, if these people were white they would be called supremacists.

The obvious remedy is to arrange for massive street riots, loot businesses, burn police cars, shoot at the police, and otherwise present themselves as the criminals they are. Yep, that's the only way they deal with life. Pathetic.

Oh- but criticism of Sarah Palin was ok? We can’t be critical of Biden VP choice because - its ... drumroll .... racist. And to question their abilities is... drumroll... racist. Tiresome.. I cheer, applaud strong women of character and talent.. Candace Owens, Dr Rice... but , these are talented, brilliant women- who happen to be of color. They are American first- and want to be known for merit , not gender or race.

These radical black leaders must be really really concerned about their voting base voting for Trump or we wouldn't have this blm non-sense which as of today, is a total insult to Mr. Floyd who was murdered. What bugs me a lot is these same leaders were completely silent about the ruthless execution-style murder of Pernell Trammell in Milwaukee last week. Why? Because Mr. Trammell dared to show support for our President.

The problem for the dems is that impact of the VP pick inordinately higher than normal. Most people don't think Biden will ever serve as president. He will be bounced out right after inauguration when, stunningly, they find out he is incompetent. Normally the VP is picked not to tick people off and hopefully to draw in some voters that are attracted to the VP. Biden attracted the older dems to support BO. In this case, the VP WILL BE the president and almost everyone knows it. The VP has to be a solid pick to run the Country. Unfortunately the dems don't HAVE anyone that is qualified. That is how they ended up with uncle Joe to begin with.

Abby Ehmann, the owner of East Village dive bar Lucky, has had her liquor license suspended a week after she started a petition calling for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reverse the state’s new mandate that bars must serve substantial amounts of food with any alcohol purchase. Ehmann says that two State Liquor Authority representatives visited the bar on Monday night at 8 p.m. to observe if the bar’s eight customers had ordered food with their drinks. After the visit, Ehmann received her first warning from the SLA on a piece of paper that did not list out the specific violations

During the week of August 17, thousands of Democrats elected to serve as delegates to their party’s national convention will log on to their computers to view the proceedings. They will cast electronic votes on the party platform and for their party’s nominee to challenge Donald Trump for the presidency. About one-quarter of this year’s delegates are Bernie Sanders supporters. Most of them are progressive political activists—and many are first-time participants in a national convention. This virtual event will not be the experience they expected. And while all of those with whom I’ve spoken are supportive of the precautions being

Earlier today, John posted the video of Joe Biden snapping at a reporter who asked him if he has taken a cognitive abilities test. I can understand why Biden resented the question, although it was a fair one, given that the former vice president has claimed to have been tested (in some unspecified way) on his cognition. But to respond by asking the reporter whether he is a junkie was out of line. Biden’s angry response is consistent with the description of him by Steve Silbiger in a guest post for Power Line.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Two people were hospitalized and two were arrested after a brawl broke out at an Anaheim hotel that involved from 60 to 100 people, police say. The fight was so big -- involving big crowds in at least two separate parts of the hotel - that police had to call in extra help from gang units and the Orange County Sheriff's Department to help separate people. Police were called to the Cambria hotel at Katella Avenue and Anaheim Boulevard around 12:40 p.m. Wednesday. When the first officers got there, they found a large group of about 40 people

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, signed an executive directive on Wednesday ordering state employees to undergo “implicit bias training.” Executive directives allow the Michigan governor to establish procedures or basic policy for employees of the state’s executive branch. According to the directive, current state employees will be required to undergo “implicit bias training” by the end of this year, while new employees must complete the training as part of the hiring process. While various bias training initiatives have been implemented by government offices in recent months, some research shows that the impact of these initiatives is negligible. Whitmer’s directive

Jason Rosenbaum, a political correspondent for St. Louis Public Radio, called Bush’s victory “one of the most significant moments in the history of St. Louis politics. It is enormous.” Clay has served in the House of Representatives since 2001, succeeding his father, who had held the seat since 1969. Bush, 44, had challenged Clay, 64, in 2018 but lost by 20 points.

Beirut’s residents are in shock and mourning after an enormous explosion at the city’s port ripped through the Lebanese capital, killing at least 100 and injuring more than 4,000, according to the emergency services. Hospitals are overwhelmed, with some too damaged by the blast to operate. The explosion, which blew out windows and destroyed property for miles around, has been initially blamed on 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in an unsecured warehouse at Beirut’s cargo port. But the government subsequently announced an investigation to determine within five days the exact cause of the explosion and “who was responsible.”

Amid the new 21st century woke revolution however, kneeling has become a key signifier for players and teams to declare which side of the culture wars one sits on. It’s those who love America versus those who hate it, the latter of which despises the American flag and all that it represents as a relic of white supremacy that must be condemned.
