Whatever was left of an in-person 2020 Democratic National Convention evaporated Wednesday as organizers announced Joe Biden won't be traveling to Milwaukee to give his presidential acceptance speech. And neither will any of the other speakers who will address the Aug. 17-20 convention. With the coronavirus pandemic paralyzing modern politics, Democrats will hold a virtual convention. Biden will accept the party's presidential nomination from his home state of Delaware.

Not buyin' this. If Dims can convene to riot, burn, and loot they can convene an actual non virtual convention. I see no difference between them. It's not the virus that has them spooked. They are not at all certain that they can protect and control Joe's off the cuff "musings." The virus is providing them with a plausible cover story for their decision to keep him in the basement as long as is humanly possible.

If elected, Biden will be inaugurated in his basement and will remain there for the next 4 years, "due to Coronavirus concerns."

This should be fun. Joe's on-line speeches usually feature him yelling at the camera, a face mask dandling from one ear, and a gaggle of geese wandering by outside the window.

It's not for concern for the dangers of the CCP-Virus, it's because he wouldn't know why he was there! Question: Who will deliver Delerious Joe's Acceptance Speach? Joe Lockhard, Kameelier Harrissss, Nancy the Fool, a Commie ie (a Comey), one of the Obummers, DeBlousio? Curious Minds Want to Know........ None of the above. It'll be Soros.............

Since the police groups have told them they won't be working the convention, I guess they figured it wouldn't look too good to have open riots on the convention floor. Besides, we might be dealing with a Weekend at Bernie's situation pretty soon.

Biden has serious underlying medical conditions, if he were to come in contact with Mr COVID from China his handlers know that Biden, at his age, would most likely end up very sick or even a dead duck.

Gee, how well did skipping Wisconsin work out for Mrs. Clinton in 2016, Joe? PS ... I like the Safe House reference. Went there a couple years back when I took my kid up to Green Bay for a Packers/Bears game. We had a real hoot at the joint, and the food was good. For those who don't know, Safe House is a bar/restaurant set up to look like a spy den with all sorts of neat spy-type things, pictures of KGB agents and stuff like that. You're supposed to know a password to get in to the place, but if you don't they make you do something goofy (like dance or sing a song) to get past the front desk and enter the secret place.

Not only President Donald Trump, but millions of people are witnessing, experiencing, and complaining about the left wing political bias and tilt of Big Tech, which has appropriately been called Big Tech Tyranny. In recent days, President Trump has targeted two of the highest profile and most successful Big Tech social media apps – TikTok and WeChat – both of them owned by companies in Communist China. TikTok, popular with smart phone users under 25, has 100 million users in the U.S. Since its introduction in app stores less than three years ago, TikTok has been one of the most downloaded apps on smart phones.

The order urges purchasers to buy American-made products and loosens federal drug-safety and environmental regulations that the administration says disadvantage domestic producers, among other measures. “I want to lay out my vision to bring millions and millions more jobs and thousands more factories back to American shores, where they belong,” Trump said

We know where to watch in the next few weeks but have no real idea what we will be watching. Yet pundits, the media, and the Left seem giddy that their polls show a Trump slump, as if they have learned nothing and forgotten nothing from 2016. But in truth, the news cycle over the next three months may well favor Trump — a scenario his opponents no doubt deem preposterous in these dog days of August. 1. The virus. The coronavirus is like an out-of-control grass fire. It dies down only to flare up without much predictability — making fools of yesterday’s experts,

If Joe Biden is elected as president, he will work with the US allies to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, “which will include re-engaging Iran in a diplomatic solution,” said Aaron Keyak, who serves as the Biden campaign's director for Jewish engagement. Speaking at a webinar hosted by the Jewish Democratic Council of America, Keyak said that the diplomatic engagement is meant to ensure that the Islamic Republic returns to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal and to “verifiably prevent a nuclear-armed Iran and find verifiable ways to ensure that it doesn't happen in the long-term.”

Trump campaign surrogates in Florida on Saturday attacked Rep. Karen Bass, a potential running mate of Democrat Joseph R. Biden, as a communist sympathizer who would try to bring the U.S. closer to the socialist governments of Cuba and Venezuela. “If God forbid Joe Biden is elected president and Congresswoman Bass becomes vice president, she will be the highest-ranking Castro sympathizer in the history of the United States government,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican. “I don’t believe in the last six decades that there has ever been anyone considered for the vice presidency … with this level of sympathy towards a Marxist regime.”

Politicians and various social justice groups have long used labels that have nothing to do with the real intent of legislation, or an organization, to dupe the public. But, to paraphrase Shakespeare, a rose by any other name is still a rose. Numerous “civil rights” bills have been passed by Congress over the years that have nothing to do with civil rights, but how many members are brave enough to point that out and vote against them? Which brings me to the Black Lives Matter movement.

In fact, people should be able to invest in, buy stock in, and even bet on anything they want. However, fiduciaries (those that manage other people’s investments) must follow some rules.

President Trump faces the prospect of growing dissent within his own party unless he can arrest his slide in the polls. Trump has fallen a significant distance behind presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in recent weeks, as the coronavirus has become resurgent. Republicans are eyeing their electoral futures with increasing nervousness. “Are they worried about Trump’s approval rating? Absolutely, because many of them know they cannot significantly outperform the president. If you are in a swing state or in a swing district, you need the president to be at least competitive,” said one former Republican member of Congress, who requested anonymity to speak candidly.

Panicked by fears manufactured by the ruling class, the American people assented to being put essentially under house arrest until further notice, effectively suspending the habits, preferences, and liberties that had defined our way of life. Most Americans have suffered economic damage. Many who do not enjoy protected status have had careers ended and been reduced to penury. Social strains and suicides multiplied. Forcibly deferring all manner of medical care is sure to impose needless suffering and death. In sum, the lockdowns’ medical and economic dysfunctions make for multiples of the deaths and miseries of the COVID-19 virus itself. Bad judgments and usurpations—the scam, not the germs—define this disaster’s dimensions.

Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to have announced Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. There was an inquisitive photographer's shot of his notes suggesting just that. But there's also some question about whether she's really qualified. The media has already seeded the ground with quotes from some of the dumbest lawyers in America to state she is a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution, and is therefore, eligible to be vice president or president.

As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were almost anybody else.

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.

Left-wing prosecutors have implemented soft-on-crime approaches to criminal justice across America, in some instances making it a matter of policy in major cities not to prosecute specific crimes, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. A common, though not universal, feature of prominent left-wing district attorneys is the backing of political organizations funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros. The New York Times has credited Soros with pioneering the “push to overhaul prosecutors’ offices” across the country. Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, whose jurisdiction includes Chicago, took office in 2017 after winning her election with the help of a Soros-funded super PAC.
