« The White House Has Issued Nine "Corrections" to Biden's Lying and Fabulism During His NAACP Screed | Main | Headless Visibility Day Cafe »

Trump's rally in the Bronx is streaming here. Trump has taken the stage. Rumble link here. (New links swapped in.)

All the Deep State election-riggers are back, baby!

James Comey begs people to vote for Joe Biden, whether they like him or not, because otherwise, Trump may come for the people who've rigged one election and are trying to rig the next one.

"You cannot sit on the sideline. I don't care how you feel about Joe Biden, you must vote for him," Comey said, "because the consequences on the other side are too severe."

The former FBI director had been asked about his feelings regarding the Trump hush money trial, which MSNBC host Alex Wagner argued was likely the only Trump case that will see a verdict before the 2024 election.

...

Wagner went on to ask if there would be a stress test "unlike any other if Donald Trump is re-elected" and asked what Comey suspects the potential implications would be for the FBI.

"Oh, serious - and for the Justice Department and the FBI - because Trump is coming for those institutions. He knows their power and I think he has regrets that he didn't work hard enough to corrupt them last time, so he's coming for them and that's a danger for all Americans," the former FBI director argued.

Yesterday I pointed out that Bloomberg was suddenly polling Trump vs. Kamala Harris. What are they hearing? I asked. Are they hearing that Democrats are starting to consider the Torricielli Option, and swapping out Biden for another Democrat?

Liberal poll analyst Nate Silver says Democrats have to start considering "alternatives."

*If* Biden is still trailing Trump by >=3 points in the swing states in August--not something I take for granted--then he'll be a pretty big underdog. It would be bananas not to consider alternatives. Sometimes all you get choose from is different types of bananas.


Because what's the threshold? Let's say the first debate goes *really* badly for Biden and now he's down 5-6 points in the tipping point states. That's a nearly unsalvageable position. You'd have to pull the emergency lever.

I don't expect Democrats to do this, because this is the same party that's too stubborn to encourage Sotomayor to resign, which is a much clearer call than anything involving Biden. But it's bananas not to think strategically when the stakes are so high.

More fodder for discussion: If Biden steps down, Kumala will obviously demand she be the nominee, and will cry racism and sexism if anyone refuses to support her. That's been her entire career so far.

So the left doesn't just want Biden to step down -- they want Kumala to step aside as well, or agree to just be vice president under, say, Gavin Newsom.

And thus we have the leftwing unfunny Daily Show dredging up videos of Kumala talking in circles (Venn diagrams, if you will) that the right has been talking about for about three years to portray Kumala as vapid space cadet airhead.

The HHS has begun the debarment process against Peter Daszak and his lethal EcoHealth bioweapon slushfund.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has begun debarment proceedings against Dr. Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, amid allegations of misconduct related to federal grant funds and gain-of-function research.


Official Notification: HHS has suspended Daszak and proposed his debarment, citing violations linked to his role in managing a significant NIH grant.

Congressional Scrutiny: The decision follows a Congressional report accusing Daszak of serious missteps in handling gain-of-function research, including bypassing safety moratoriums.

Continued Investigations: Further Congressional actions are planned to fully hold Daszak accountable, including potential perjury regarding his grant management and collaborations with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

A top general says he warned the Afghanistan bug-out would go exactly as it went.

The top U.S. general in Afghanistan repeatedly warned the Biden administration that the region would get "very bad, very fast" after U.S. forces withdrew, The Washington Post reported.

The Biden administration orchestrated the effort to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan in 2021 in what critics decried as an operational disaster that ended in the deaths of several troops and Afghani civilians. Retired Gen. Austin Scott Miller, the top U.S. general in Afghanistan in 2021, expressed concerns to the Biden administration about the region's security post-withdrawal and feared that they did not understand the risks of keeping an embassy open with little protection, he told the House Foreign Affairs Committee in a closed-door testimony last month, according to the Post.


Miller told lawmakers that he was so troubled that he privately warned a Marine Crops commander in charge of planning for a potential withdrawal to be ready for "really adverse conditions," according to the Post.

"I did not foresee a good future for Afghanistan as I was departing," he told lawmakers in April, according to the Post.

...

The administration maintains that the Afghanistan withdrawal was the "correct policy choice."

"All the evidence is coming back. Do you remember what I said about Afghanistan?" Biden told reporters in 2023 when asked whether mistakes were made during the withdrawal. "I said al Qaeda would not be there. I said it wouldn't be there. I said we'd get help from the Taliban. What's happening now? What's going on? Read your press. I was right."

Eighty-one suspected terrorists have been caught crossing into the US just since October. And of course these are just the ones who crossed so blatantly that the compromised and handcuffed Border Patrol was able to catch.

It has been revealed that 81 suspects on the terror watchlist have been apprehended while trying to illegally cross into the United States since October 2023.

Data from Customs and Border Protection has shown that with six months left in Fiscal Year 2024, encounters with those whose names appear in the Terrorist Screening Dataset are set to come close to, if not surpass, the 172 reported the previous fiscal year.

Another illegal alien has committed an unthinkable crime.

Former Biden press secretary Jen Psaki and fellow MSNBC talking heads Joy Reid and Rachel Maddow chuckled in March upon learning from a Super Tuesday exit poll that Virginia voters were concerned about the costly, deadly, and destabilizing influx of millions of illegal aliens into the nation.

The exit poll found that immigration was the top concern among 38% of Republican voters. When asked what should be done about the illegal aliens in the U.S., 61% of Republican respondents in Virginia said to send them packing to wherever they came from.

For the well-paid Biden boosters, this was evidently a laughing matter.

"Well, Virginia does have a border with West Virginia. Very contested area," quipped Maddow.


The reality of the Biden administration's failure to secure the border has, however, once again adversely impacted the very Americans whose concerns the MSNBC panelists thought laughable.

The Campbell County Sheriff's Office arrested an illegal alien Wednesday and charged him with the rape of a minor.

The sheriff's office indicated that Hiuder Pedro Javier Sacul-Caal, previously arrested in Virginia for drunk driving, is in the country illegally and has been deported at least once in the past, reported WSET-TV.

Video of Psaki and Maddow giggling at the link.

Snicker some more, snotty bitches:

Lawyers representing an undocumented migrant who was allegedly intoxicated and killed a Washington state trooper are encouraging immigration authorities not to deport the suspect.

Raul Benitez Santana has reportedly been detained in Snohomish County Jail since he was charged for vehicular homicide and vehicular assault stemming from a March 2 incident.

The 33-year-old immigrant from Mexico was allegedly drunk and high on cannabis when he purportedly drove 112 miles per hour on the shoulder of a local interstate, crashing into and killing 27-year-old patrol trooper Chris Gadd as he was sitting in his parked vehicle.

Santana's blood-alcohol level was reportedly just above the state's legal limit at 0.083, according to the Everett Herald.

Last Wednesday, Judge Richard Okrent reduced the defendant's bail from $1 million to $100,000--a decision praised by Santana's attorneys but criticized by Gadd's widow and prosecutors.

...

Santana's attorneys, Emily Hancock and Tiffany Mecca, reportedly asked Okrent to release their client from jail altogether, claiming he poses no threat to others in society due to no felonies being on his record.

He does have misdemeanors for driving with a suspended license.

A lot of murderers have a clean record. You know, before they murder someone.

The Washington Post is looking for a "narrative accountability editor" for "mission-driven journalism."

If you can't tell what they're talking about, that means they're obscuring the real meaning, and the real meaning is bad.

This job requires someone with a track record of producing sophisticated narrative pieces and the ability to identify and pursue sharp investigative and accountability targets.

In other words: We're looking for a self-declared "disinformation expert" to do hit-pieces claiming Republicans are lying.

The ideal candidate has a demonstrated ability to guide and shape compelling stories that use immersive reporting, keenly observed moments and exceptional writing to illuminate systemic failures and hold powerful people, institutions and interests to account.

All powerful people and institutions, or just the ones you've declared war on?


Adventures in "Stuttering:"

Pothead partisan Bill Maher demonstrated just how woefully ill-informed he is -- and he's a "reasonable" liberal.

But he denied that Hillary Clinton had ever called Trump an "illegitimate president" and claimed that multiple cops were killed on January 6th.
