Democrats need to recruit Obama to bench Biden, find another candidate

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Looking isolated and lapsing into occasional gibberish, Biden seemed ­every bit the mentally challenged 77-year-old he was on the worst days of the campaign. Although he did better on a CNN virtual town hall Friday, his tics, such as having a three-point answer to every question, do not inspire confidence that he is capable of being president. So what can Dems do? Find another nominee. But first, they must bench Biden, or persuade him to bench himself. It’s a job for Barack Obama. Obama could pitch withdrawal as a final public service to country and party. For all we know, members of Biden’s family share the idea and would welcome Obama’s intervention.

Obama to Trump: You Didn’t Build That Economy

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obama’s balderdash about ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) explains the growth in manufacturing jobs over which Trump has presided. During the Obama years, 300,000 manufacturing jobs disappeared. When Trump pledged to bring them back, Obama claimed that he would need a magic wand to accomplish this — yet somehow nearly 500,000 such jobs have been added to the economy since Trump took office. Will the Democrats give Obama credit for creating jobs he said weren’t coming back? Probably. But it won’t fly. The voters can see the difference between the Democratic malaise under Obama and the subsequent improvement in their day-to-day lives. They know Trump did indeed build this economy.

'Conservative Obama,' pregnant men and other liberal media fantasies

Robert Knight, Washington Times

For Marxists, a lie is as good as truth if it works to advance their cause. A case in point was a recent nearly full-page article on the front page of The Washington Post’s Outlook section, where the headline proclaimed: “Barack Obama: Conservative.” Sure. And Bernie Sanders is moderate. When an entire generation is taught that truth is subjective, and that the only god they should heed is their feelings, they’ll fall for anything. Orwell warned in his dystopian novel “1984” about an all-powerful state suppressing the truth. Although no original citation has been unearthed, he’s been widely quoted as saying, “speaking the truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.” We’d better do so while it’s still mostly legal in America.

Let’s Say A Thanksgiving Prayer For 2020

By electing Donald Trump, we, and our country, in effect survived the long harsh winter of the Obama years, but there’s no guarantee that we will succeed in our goal of governing America according to limited government constitutional conservative principles. To do that will require many more years of hard work.

Why Republicans Won’t Abandon Trump

Trump haters are confounded by Trump supporters. They ask, “If you believe it’s true that Trump does sketchy things, why don’t you care?” They ask the same question about the climate: “You concede that the climate is changing, so why won’t you do something about it?” The answer: You first.

Trump economy surges and Biden and Obama hog the credit

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

With the economy surging, all of a sudden, it is just Mr. Obama’s doing. The double standard here is so transparent that only someone suffering from TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — would miss it. If the economy were crashing today, the left would say that it’s all Mr. Trump’s fault. But with the economy doing quite well, Mr. Obama gets the credit. The biggest threat to the economy right now is that we repeal the Trump growth policies and return to Obamanomics. This is what Mr. Biden is promising, and if it comes to pass we will learn the bitter lesson that the good old days under Mr. Obama — really weren’t so good at all.

Killing Biden -- to salvage Obama

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

What is this all about? It is a cover-up, plain and simple. Whom, you ask, are they trying to cover for? Their next political savior who can take down Mr. Trump? Certainly not former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. If anything, Mr. Biden has been set ablaze atop the altar as a sacrifice in this massive international cover-up by Democrats. The sleaze and dishonesty and self-dealing that oozes from the Biden name these days will leave a permanent stain on his nearly half-century political career. Do you think Republicans might like to question Mr. Brennan or Mr. Clapper under oath? Of course they would. But Mrs. Pelosi will never let them get that close to Mr. Obama.

Lindsey Graham Gets The Kurds And Syria Backwards

Senator Graham has a point about the government of Turkey’s enmity toward an independent Kurdistan and the danger a Turkish incursion poses to independence-minded Kurds, but he has it all backwards about the United States “abandoning” the Kurds.

Trump's Conservative Policies Launch Boom For Middle America

Stephen Moore’s recent Wall Street Journal column clearly refutes the charge by Democrats that only millionaires and billionaires have benefited from President Trump’s economic policies. But it is also a devastating indictment of the Bush and Obama policies which resulted in nearly two decades of lost economic progress for Middle America.

Retribution by Obama officials keeps courageous congressman in prison

Rebecca Hagelin, Washington Times

Steve Stockman is an American hero who had the guts to expose corruption at the highest levels. If the abuses of power that now leave him shackled are not investigated and prosecuted, then who will ever dare question the leftist power mongers in the future? If his conviction is not overturned or pardoned, then Mr. Obama, Ms. Lerner and the liberal cronies who walked free from their own crimes will have succeeded in crushing a good man who fought to hold them accountable. Steve Stockman worked on behalf of all Americans who are sick and tired of dirty politicians. Every lawmaker who cares about true justice and their own honor has a duty to fight for Steve Stockman.

Trumping Obama: A Must-Have Book for the 2020 Election

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The book is a must-have for Trump supporters for the coming presidential election. It is the best compendium I have seen of all the president's achievements in overcoming what we might call Obamaism and more. It's all here in Margolis’ book from the obvious (pulling out of the Iran Deal and the Paris Climate Accords) to the obscure I couldn't remember having happened at all (reversing Obama's military surplus rule, whatever that was). You are reminded just how much Obama actually did with his phone and his pen, as he put it, and just how hard Trump had to work to reverse it. Thankfully, Barack almost always bypassed Congress, so Trump could too.

ICYMI: April’s Great Economic News

Not that we believe in or promote “conspiracy theories,” you know, like the one that the Trump campaign was spied upon by a corrupt Obama-era FBI and intelligence apparatus. But there is one conspiracy we are convinced exits, and that is that the establishment media refuses to report good economic news.

Joe Biden and restoring the old (pre-Trump) order

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Biden stands ahead of the field. Democrats know how old he is, they know he has lost in the past, and they still like him. There's a truism that elections are always about the future, not the past. That's often the case. But what if it isn't this time? A lot of political truisms did not hold up in the 2016 election, which was won by a man with another promise of restoration, to "Make America Great Again." Now, many Democrats seem happy to support a candidate who pledges to take them back a few years. Again, that could change, but for the moment, it shows how many Democrats yearn to return to a time before Trump.

Joe Biden Cuddle Studio Franchising Opportunity

Cuddle studios advertise they provide nourishment for the soul through laughter, compassionate listening, and above all else, an incredible grounding energy. However, the competition in the nascent cuddling industry is about to become even fiercer with the entry of a new market-maker: The Joe Biden Cuddle Studio franchise operation.

Skipping Over Hillary and Obama Fights

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When Democrats start ripping one another, the media sees it as Ma and Pa having a fight and hide it shamelessly. A sulking, sanctimonious Obama blasts Clinton — and nothing. The networks haven't reported this, despite the source being a New York Times reporter. But this is funnier: It's also not in The New York Times. You have to go to the London Daily Mail or the Washington Examiner to find it. The media strongly denounced Donald Trump after an October 2016 debate for refusing to say whether he would accept the election results. But Hillary Clinton, like the press corps, can never accept what actually happened.

The Persecution of the 'Easter Worshippers'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton expressed sympathy for "Easter worshippers." This wasn't about ignorance. Obama and Clinton knew exactly what they weren't doing. Why the refusal to denounce the Muslim assault aimed directly and solely at Christianity? The left seems to resent the Christian faith as a dominant Western, imperialist, patriarchal (and somehow, Caucasian) presence. The persecution of Christians around the world for their faith, especially in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, is a real crisis. It deserves more sympathy and attention than the secular press is allowing — even if you're so hypersensitive about it you say, "Easter worshippers."

The walls are closing in on Obama

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

The truth of violations of law by the Obama White House, long buried, is being excavated by two private groups. Judicial Watch has obtained testimony from a top FBI official that Hillary home-brew server emails were found in the White House. This means that Barrack Obama's illegal handling of classified information contained in those emails is closer to being exposed. This implicates him in the same felonies committed by Hillary Clinton that James Comey falsely claimed "no reasonable prosecutor" would pursue. Proof is also piling up that White House operatives exploited the NSA's surveillance of all electronic communications in the United States to monitor political opponents.

The Democrats’ Mean Girls Problem

Few voters outside college campuses and the liberal Twitterverse are attracted to angry white feminists, sneering liberal arrogance, smug elite condescension, Hillary Clinton-style flip-floppers and scary socialist commissars – which pretty well sums-up the females in the Democratic field.

Lunch Bucket Joe And The Mafia Hit Man

As Joe Biden announces for president it is worth recalling he has a long, friendly, and somewhat dark history with the Teamsters, or, more accurately, a mafia hitman, the late Frank Sheeran, who also happened to be the president of Teamsters local 326 in Delaware and helped make Biden a U.S. senator.

Obama Judge Compares Trump to KKK

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obama appointee Carlton W. Reeves has now escalated his activism by attacking the President and comparing him to a long line of white supremacist Democrats and their partners in the KKK. Reeves didn’t make his outrageous claims because he cares about racial justice or some imaginary assault on the judiciary. He’s part of the problem Trump and the Republican Senate are trying to fix by filling judicial vacancies with such alacrity. They want the courts to command the respect of the American people. If President Trump can clean out that infestation of hacks, his place among the best Presidents will be secure.
