2020 Election Election crime Election protests Election riots election violence Intelwars NYPD Police

Police departments across the nation preparing for election violence: ‘I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this in modern times’

Tensions are sky-high heading into the 2020 election, and those combustible forces will be inflamed once the winner of the presidential race is officially announced.

Businesses in major American cities have already started to board up their storefronts in anticipation of potential riots from the election. Law enforcement agencies across the country are also preparing for the worst-case scenario, which could mean widespread violence stemming from the presidential election.

“I don’t think we’ve seen ­anything like this in modern times,” Andrew Walsh, a deputy chief with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, told The Washington Post. “When you look at previous elections, there’s always been the concern when you have large crowds . . . we know [that] can be a target for someone who has an agenda.”

Walsh is concerned that the results of the race likely won’t be available on election night, which could exacerbate the already bellicose situation.

“We just don’t know how long this is going to take, or what this is going to look like, once this is over … and no matter who wins, somebody’s not going to be happy,” said Walsh, who heads the Las Vegas Police Department’s homeland security division.

The New York City Police Department said it would dispatch officers at each of the city’s 1,201 polling locations on Election Day.

“It is no secret that this election is more contentious [than] in years past,” said NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan. “For that reason … our plan also includes the ability to respond to any type of incident that may occur.”

Washington, D.C., canceled days off for police officers starting this weekend. The nation’s capital “spent $100,000 on less-than-lethal munitions and chemical irritants for riot control to replenish a stockpile depleted by clashes over the summer,” The Washington Post reports.

“It is widely believed that there will be civil unrest after the November election regardless of who wins,” said D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham. “It is also believed that there is a strong chance of unrest when Washington, D.C., hosts the inauguration in January.”

According to Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown, the department has canceled all days off for its force in November.

Brown said police and emergency responders are training for “whatever scenario happens on Election Day.”

“Many cities across the country are doing similar planning,” Brown said. “We are all in conversations with our counterparts across the country about what we might expect, but everything is uncertain, and so we’re trying as best we can to anticipate any hazard that might happen, including a weather hazard, snow might happen in our city, along with anything related to protests, embedded agitators that might loot or cause violence or destroy property.”

The Boston Police Department canceled officers’ time off around the election “to provide sufficient public safety.”

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said his administration is planning for potential violence stemming from the election.

“What is kind of alarming to me is that the preparation that we’re putting into this election we’ve never had to put into an election before,” Walsh said. “I certainly wasn’t asked in 2016, ‘What’s your safety plan for Election Day?'”

Austin Police Department Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon said the department would be on “tactical alert” during the week of the election, and that every officer would be made available to respond to civil unrest.

As early as this weekend, the Texas National Guard plans to send up to 1,000 troops to five cities: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

The Beverly Hills City Council approved “an additional $4.8 million for supplemental police and security services in anticipation of the potential civil unrest around the presidential race,” including “hiring two private armed security firms,” according to the Beverly Hills Courier.

For the first time in Denver’s history, the city is establishing a police command center in preparation for potential post-election unrest.

Denver’s Public Safety Director Murphy Robinson said he is aware of two planned protests on Election Day with upwards of 2,000 people each.

A report from The Federalist states that insurgent groups against President Donald Trump have already planned Election Day turmoil to “make sure Trump leaves the White House.”

“[W]e’re making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way,” the group Shut Down DC said on its website. The purpose of the gathering is to “be together to process our feelings of hope, anger, fear and exhaustion as a community.”

The New Jersey Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness issued a threat assessment in September that warned about “threats from domestic extremists and foreign adversaries have emerged due to the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-government sentiment, nationwide civil unrest, and various forms of disinformation. These threats will begin to converge with the Presidential election in November in a manner not previously experienced by our nation.”

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Donald Trump Intelwars Joe Biden Russia Ukraine

Commentary: No matter who wins Tuesday, expect to hear a lot of claims that the winner is ‘compromised’ and more chatter about the 25th Amendment

Saturday is not only Halloween, but quite appropriately marks the one-year anniversary of the formal House vote to open up a ridiculous impeachment inquiry — the culmination of a post-2016 election vendetta, as I point out in “Abuse of Power: Inside the Three-Year Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump.”

After the Democrats Russia-Russia-Russia obsession crashed and burned with the completion of a special counsel report, they moved to the country next door to try to remove him from office.

Knowing what we know now, turning the focus of the scandal onto Trump for his call with the Ukrainian president might have been the best way to mask a larger problem with Joe and Hunter Biden. The FBI reportedly has been investigating Hunter and his associates for possible money laundering since 2019.

Moreover, as interested as Trump (and at one point the media) were in Hunter’s capers in Ukraine, the bigger story could be China. One of Hunter’s partners, Tony Bobulinski, said on Fox News, if elected, “I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised,” when it comes to dealing with China.

Thus, we are in a place in 2020 that isn’t so different from where we were in 2016. Whoever wins the presidency on Tuesday will be followed into the White House with suspicions he is compromised by a foreign adversary. Also, expect talk of the 25th Amendment to come into play.

Recall Democrats claimed even before the 2016 election that Trump could be compromised by Russia. After Trump was elected, Democrats went to town on a vast conspiracy theory that manifested into a costly investigation that found no such conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government or operatives. If Trump wins again, Democrats will almost certainly find a way to blame Russia as at least one factor.

Biden has always been chummy with China, prompting some Trump supporters to tag him “Beijing Biden.” That concern about being a compromised president will increase if the former vice president is elected Tuesday. While the Justice Department is part of the executive branch, it’s not easy to shut down an FBI investigation. Who can say how far this reported probe of Hunter Biden and his associates might lead? It might — as the Russia collusion probe of Trump — turn out be much ado about nothing with regard to a potential President Biden. Or it could be much more substantive.

Concurrently, while Democrats began impeachment-in-search-of-reason starting immediately after Trump’s election — considering emoluments, Russia, James Comey’s firing, Stormy Daniels and mean tweets before settling on Ukraine — many Democrats pondered the 25th Amendment as plan B, as also noted in “Abuse of Power.”

In 2017, Rep. James Raskin (D-Md.) proposed a bill on the 25th Amendment to oust Trump. He recently proposed a similar bill — endorsed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — for the next president. House Democrats claim the legislation isn’t for Trump but for whoever the next president is. It could be a means of hedging their bets.

Previously, Democrats tried to push a narrative that Trump is crazy and will likely continue to make this claim if Trump is re-elected.

If Biden is elected, the cognitive issues already being talked about will gain heightened attention. In this case, the notion might even have some bipartisan buy-in. Republicans and conservative commentators have been more eager to raise it in an election year. But Democrats have oddly put forward a legislative framework for using the amendment against whoever is the next president.

So, on a policy level, there are some big differences between Trump and Biden. But, regardless of who wins, expect to hear a lot of chatter from the opposition party about a president compromised by a foreign adversary with scattered talk about invoking the 25th Amendment.

Businesses boarding up in cities across the country in anticipation of election chaos: ‘It’s pretty scary’

There are still four days until the 2020 presidential election, but businesses in major cities across the United States are already preparing for the worst. This week, there was a major push by businesses to board up storefronts in American cities, including Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.

Many of the large cities have already been plagued with protests and violent riots since the early summer, but business owners are anticipating potentially worse chaos on Election Day, and what could turn into election week(s) when the official winner is declared.

In Washington, D.C., luxury retailers have already begun to board up their shops ahead of Tuesday’s election. Alex Provenzano, who owns a salon in downtown D.C., boarded up his door and windows on Wednesday.

“I’m usually a very positive person; I hope for the best,” Provenzano told USA Today. “But the people are very stressed out, and there is a lot of uncertainty in the country right now. It’s pretty scary.”

There are even barriers and fences being constructed in the neighborhood near the White House.

Los Angeles has already been hit hard by riots over the past months, which has caused many business to board up previously. Now more business owners are preparing for even more upheaval.

The city of Beverly Hills has reportedly already decided to close down the iconic and swanky Rodeo Drive shopping area on Nov. 3 and 4.

Plywood was also seen being put up on storefronts in San Francisco as if a hurricane was imminent.

In Boston, portions of the Prudential Center was boarded up on Thursday to prevent property damage.

In Chicago, businesses along the Magnificent Mile shopping area are boarded up, and there are barriers still remaining from previous protests that escalated into civil unrest.

The Santa Monica Police Department said they have no intelligence of civil unrest on Election Day, but said, “We also know that things can change rapidly and are actively monitoring the situation.”

“We have received questions about reinforcing storefronts. As a Police Department, we cannot tell business what to do when it comes to boarding up,” the SMPD statement said. “However, we understand the need to feel secure and we respect your decisions on how to handle your day to day operations. If you choose to board up your business or want to have the materials ready to do so, we support you.”

In New York City, the NYPD advised businesses located in Midtown Manhattan to “take additional security measures in preparation for the possibility of large-scale demonstrations around the coming presidential election,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

The NYPD told businesses they should “move or secure items such as street furniture, trash cans and small planters that are located at sidewalks and plazas adjacent to storefronts before the Nov. 3 election.”

ServiceChannel, which provides facility management software and contractor sourcing for 550 brands, noted that “companies including at least 10 luxury brands had ordered board ups or other security measures at 539 locations around the U.S.,” according to Quartz.

Professionally boarding up a store can cost more than $5,000, and up to $20,000 for a large store, according to ServiceChannel.

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Donald Trump Intelwars Joe Biden Joe biden corruption

Eric Metaxas: Character still counts. ‘Trump. Now more than ever’

As a Christian, what do you see as the main argument for Donald Trump in 2020?

That he’s not Joe Biden, or Kamala Harris (or whoever she picks for veep when the ref waves his arms signaling it’s all over for Joe, which seems imminent). Any Americans who can fathom what will befall this country — and the world — if these principle-free career politicians are elected at this historic moment of crisis could not dream of voting for them. But because mainstream journalists have become proud traitors to their profession — and country — many voters are unaware of what’s at stake.

But to answer your question more accurately, Christians believe we should be less concerned about ourselves than about others. We are never merely to think of our self-interest and “Christian issues,” but rather to vote for the good of the entire country, and for the future of liberty around the world. So even when we speak of the egregious attacks on religious liberty by the Democrats, we are inevitably thinking of the larger issues of liberty for all Americans. Nonetheless, we might touch on the oft-cited issue of “character,” which is of course important to all people of faith, and to Americans in general.

Which brings us to the baffling fact that despite claiming to be a “practicing Catholic,” Joe Biden promises to do all he can to expand abortion into the ninth month of pregnancy. We should also remember that it was he who pushed President Obama to legalize same-sex marriage, long before this monumental redefinition of a millennia-old institution was accepted by the majority of Americans. Even more dramatically, Biden would force teaching unscientific transgender ideology to our youngest children, even advocating for 8-year-olds to have gender reassignment surgery if they choose — against their own parents’ wishes. For anyone posing as a Catholic, this is an astonishing level of hypocrisy and indicates less someone of “character” than someone of unbridled — and frightening — political ambition.

Christians are commanded to care about the poor, so a robust economy and opportunity are inescapably vital issues. And Biden’s demonstrated weakness in standing up to the aggressive cancel-culture socialists and Marxists in his party — to the point of selecting the most radically leftist of all 100 senators as his running mate — will promptly soccer-kick our economy toward Venezuela. This will further devastate the poorest urban communities that his party has claimed — and failed — to represent for five decades, and whose jobs have often gone to the illegal immigrants his party has welcomed with open arms. Nor has Biden done more than give cranky lip-service to law enforcement, despite violent mobs regularly destroying American cities, and harming the very black lives he claims to care about.

A lot of evangelicals cite Trump’s tone as a barrier to voting for him. How do you respond?

This is what we call “straining at a gnat to swallow a camel.” In other words it is either sheer pietistic lunacy, or it is self-deluding moral contortionism masquerading as a concern for civility. For context, it’s worth recalling the “tone” — and “character” — of some much-praised Democratic presidents. LBJ was likely the most foul-mouthed, bullying, and unapologetic hayseed racist ever to occupy the highest office in the land; while his dashing patrician predecessor JFK routinely brought prostitutes into the White House, despite himself also posing as a “Catholic.” FDR had a mistress throughout his presidency and with the press’ help hid his inability to walk across a room for four terms. Obama only hid his cigarette addiction from voters, but repeatedly and brazenly lied that anyone who wished to keep their health insurance policies could do so, historically increasing government control over our lives. If smooth-talking deception is acceptable, perhaps the straight-talking and sometimes “harsh” Trump is not what we are looking for.

On this subject, we may recall that when running for president in 1988, Biden proudly reeled off a flurry of dramatic whoppers about his academic record, and when caught in these lies was forced to drop out. Which gets us back to the issue of “character.” Biden’s prolific and serial plagiarism in political speeches is so broadly established that it’s never mentioned anymore, nor is it worth mentioning that he committed adultery with his current wife while she was married to another man. But it is worth mentioning the single most consequential and horrifying of Biden’s character issues, that he has used his power as a U.S. Senator — since the Nixon administration — and then as VP to funnel millions of dollars in phony “jobs” and “business contracts” to his closest unqualified relatives, some percentage of whose profits appear to have magically snaked their way back to him without leaving any plausibly undeniable trail.

Even worse, he committed these sins with Russia, Ukraine, and China, who is unquestionably our most powerful political adversary, and whose atheist communist dictatorship evilly persecutes anyone of faith, including murdering many Muslim “political prisoners” for their organs, which they then sell at a huge profit to wealthy Saudis. (Ailing Saudi oil sheiks don’t wish to use the organs of dirty non-Muslims, and are willing to pay top dollar for the hearts and lungs of young and healthy Uighyur Muslims.) China also generally oppresses it’s 1.4 billion subjects with state-of-the-art technology sold to them — or simply stolen from us — under Biden’s “watch”.

But let’s suppose against the dizzying evidence that all of this is merely “Russian disinformation,” as if the Russians preferred Trump to Biden, which is inevitably a comedic proposition. Nonetheless, most people of faith would still greatly prefer a sometimes “harsh-toned” ace pilot in the cockpit to a below-average but polite one. The stakes for us all are simply too high.

Some have cited Trump’s immigration policies to claim he’s not truly pro-life. How do you respond?

I assume such claims are a combination of sophistry and ignorance, and so first of all I guffaw out loud, which is hard to do in a written medium — but some ideas are simply that funny. To those whose best argument is that this president is “racist,” we must say that by ending the startling lunacy of “open-borders,” Trump is doing the right thing for people on both sides of the border. The ugly facts are that the sadistic and criminal “coyotes” (N.B. not literal animals) make extraordinary profits by smuggling into our country vulnerable women, whom they usually rape, and children, whom they sometimes also rape and who, once in the U.S., they pretend are their own children, often selling both the women and children into sex trafficking. Democrats willingly ignore this concatenation of evils because it suits them politically, knowing most illegal immigrants — when given the chance — will vote for them. This self-serving cynicism is even uglier than the criminal horrors they ignore. Reading the situation correctly and taking action on it has certainly cost Trump politically, as real courage often does.

What issues has Trump championed that should make evangelicals want to choose him in 2020?

This too, is an issue principally of character. Trump in the last election claimed he would appoint “pro-life” justices to the Supreme Court — which no Republican had ever dared to say. Many sneered at this, saying that he would say anything to get elected and would never follow through on any such promises. But he did follow through, and beyond the wildest expectations of any pro-life voters, installing three pro-life justices in four years. He also spoke in person at the March for Life, something no president had the courage to do. So his stance on life is only one reason, it is deeply compelling and dispositive, just as standing against Slavery was in our last election of such unprecedented consequence. And of course some believe that standing against the murder of the unborn is itself alone an issue of “character,” whether one claims to be a Catholic or not.

Doing what one promises is also a character issue. Many presidents emptily claimed they would put the U.S. Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem, and shamefully did not. Trump did, despite the “nattering nabobs of negativism” who insisted it would bring about war in the Middle East. In fact, precisely the opposite that has happened. Trump has so dramatically increased peace between Israel and her neighbors that he has earned four Nobel Peace Prize nominations.

He has also creatively and courageously stood up to China, North Korea, and Iran, in the process dramatically reversing the craven and failed policies of the Obama/Biden administration, and putting these rogue nations on notice that America is not to be trifled with. These successes have utterly unhinged the ineffective bureaucrats in the State Department, who prefer presidents to rubber-stamp the antique and flatulent policies they recommend decade after decade.

At America’s best moments, those suffering in totalitarian countries have gotten profound encouragement from our bold stand for freedom, and because of Trump’s stance they do now. Those suffering in the Soviet gulag similarly drew inspiration when Reagan — also defying the fruitless advice of the Deep Statists — declared “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Such contrarian and often heroic wisdom is called “leadership”, and in this hour we need it especially desperately. Putting it another way, we may recycle a political slogan from the year Joe Biden first won election to the Senate: “Trump. Now more than ever.”

Commentary: We need warriors who will punish those who seek to destroy America

“I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.”. ? J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Return of the King.”

We’ve arrived. Frazzled and scarred though we may be from nearly four years of travails, we are set to cast the ring of political power back into the civic Mount Doom from whence it came. Yet our story doesn’t quite have the same sort of reset button on it that Frodo and Sam’s did.

Instead of flat-out destroying evil incarnate, we are simply deciding if we want to wear big boy pants and try adulting yet again as the “moral and religious people” the Founding Fathers intended for a representative republic. Which is not to say that doesn’t come with harsh realities. In fact, I’ve never been more concerned about our nation’s fate.

I truly believe we are on the brink of civil war no matter which way the election goes. The lies of Fauci promise it. The streets of Philly promise it. The hatred of Amy Coney Barrett promises it. The propaganda of CNN promises it. The censorship of Twitter promises it. We are choking on fake news that distorts reality at every turn and will inevitably require painful correction.

Among the distortions I am talking about after the election is whether voices like mine will even be able to be heard with anything resembling regular and unambiguous First Amendment protections. The media memory holing of Hunter Biden and Tony Bobulinski as “disinformation,” while at the exact same time championing a formerly “Anonymous” Trump-hating fake whistle blower who turns out to be nothing more than an inconsequential grifter, is an official declaration of war against a free and fair exchange of ideas going forward.

The dystopia is here, and there is clearly no one in conservative media too big at this point to be swallowed by its gluttony. Access to platforms will be blocked. FCC violations will be conjured out of thin air. Imaginary yet all-too-real charges of libel and slander will be used to ruin careers. Expect it all. You would be naïve not to at this point.

Such a fascist battlefield will take a level of civic, political, and moral resolve from true patriots to do combat against. The likes of which the political right has rarely seen in recent decades. I have told you in the past that one of the main reasons we have arrived as this inane point in our American story is because while Democrats run for office to do something, most Republicans merely run in order to be somebody.

They want to be liked. They want to be validated. They want to be popular. It’s pathetic.

We need warriors right damn now, not wannabes. Nothing else will do, especially if Trump loses. And with the GOP at the federal level a nearly lost cause when it comes to anything aspirational from a governing perspective, it will be governors in red states who will need to lead an unapologetic movement. One in defiance of the spirit of the age that demands not only compliance but its own form of worship of the progressive beast.

The usual suspects at this point at are named DeSantis, Noem, Kemp, and Reynolds among others. Not many others, though, and who knows if these folks are ready to take the next step into the breach? Pretenders of any kind simply won’t be able to last. True leaders will need to be able to clearly communicate what is at stake, and why it is worth fighting for without hesitation or reservation. Not only can we not lose any more ground, we must finally have a thirst for taking some ground back.

Think Lincoln, Grant, and Sherman. It has come to that. Open war is upon you whether you wish it or not, and for our children’s sake, we must find leaders who seek to embarrass and punish those who seek to destroy this once great land. They must make their states new shining cities on a hill, and dare any usurper from a rogue and rotten federal government or media enterprise to try and stop them.

Know thy enemy. Find thy enemy. Punish thy enemy. Nice has gotten us nowhere and the game is zero sum now. What are we prepared to do?

2020 Election burning cities chaos concede Conspiracy Fact and Theory contested election Derrick Broze Donald Trump election elections are selections Event 201 government models Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden political parasites Polls puppets refuse to participate Violence voting is a scam wake up

Secret Models of “The Darkest Winter”

Winter is coming and with it, more totalitarian overreaches, burning cities, violence, and chaos, no matter who “wins” the upcoming election (which has already been determined to go a certain way based on modeling and the agenda of the elitists). If you are still under some kind of delusion that your vote actually matters, it’s time to wake up.

Derrick Broze says: “We are in the last few months of a tumultuous year and it appears there might be more unprecedented events on the way. As we near election 2020, it’s important to step back and analyze the potential plans of the Predator Class. Specifically, it’s important to understand a number of recent government simulations and exercises.”

A number of recent simulations of the United States 2020 election are telling.  The plan is to make it appear as though voting matters, so both sides get upset when a winner isn’t determined immediately. This will result in chaos and potential civil war, and this website has already warned you of this election modeling. It would be easy to dismiss these exercises as politically driven fantasy if the people involved had not already publicly advised their candidate not to concede the election under any circumstances.

“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.” ? Joseph Stalin

People have been content to hand over their power to political overlords by voting. When this happens and the division in a country is so strong, the potential for chaos is off the charts. Most recently, media reports indicated the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) held a number of exercises simulating what might happen in the event Donald Trump loses the 2020 election but refuses to leave office.

The Boston Globe reported that the TIP met in June to simulate the 11-week period between Election Day on November 3rd and Inauguration Day on January 20, 2021. The exercises state that “Trump and his Republican allies used every apparatus of government — the Postal Service, state lawmakers, the Justice Department, federal agents, and the military — to hold onto power, and Democrats took to the courts and the streets to try to stop it.” –Activist Post

More Preplanned Election Chaos: Trump Says The Supreme Court Will “Sort Out” The Election

What’s more, is there was a government exercise called “the dark winter”:

The Dark Winter exercise took place in June 2001, only months before the 9/11 attacks. This exercise took place at Andrews Air Force Base in Camp Springs, Maryland, and involved several Congressmen, a former CIA director, a former FBI director, government insiders, and privileged members of the press. The exercise simulated the use of smallpox as a biological weapon against the American public.

During the Dark Winter exercise authorities attempt to stop the spread of “dangerous misinformation” and “unverified” cures, just like with the Event 201 simulation. Dark Winter further discusses the suppression and removal of civil liberties, such as the possibility of the President to invoke “The Insurrection Act”, which would allow the military to act as law enforcement upon request by a State governor, as well as the possibility of “martial rule.” The script says martial rule may “include, but are not limited to, prohibition of free assembly, national travel ban, quarantine of certain areas, suspension of the writ of habeas corpus [i.e. arrest without due process], and/or military trials in the event that the court system becomes dysfunctional.” –Activist Post

The best thing you can do is refuse to participate in this gigantic scam, stay as far away from the polls as possible on election day, refuse to live in fear, and make sure you are prepared to defend yourself and family if chaos does break out. Do not add fuel to the fire by taking to the streets. To beat these psychopaths at their own game, all we have to do is stand up and refuse to play.

No Matter Who Wins, the American People Lose: The Election Will Only Determine Who Will Continue The Erosion

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Donald Trump Intelwars republican party Wisconsin

Wisconsin GOP says hackers stole $2.3 million from its coffers just days before the election; FBI is investigating

Officials with the Wisconsin Republican Party told the Associated Press on Thursday that hackers broke into the party’s coffers and stole $2.3 million designated for promoting the re-election of President Donald Trump.

According to the AP, GOP officials discovered the hack on Oct. 22 and called the FBI on Friday.

Wisconsin Party Chairman Andrew Hitt told the outlet that the FBI has launched an investigation into the theft. The AP said the FBI has yet to respond to inquiries about the alleged theft.

The timing of the hack comes as the Trump campaign is attempting to ward off the efforts of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and repeat its surprise victory of 2016.

The Badger State has been seen during the entire 2020 election cycle as a key battleground state after Trump beat Hillary Clinton there in 2016 after she infamously took the state for granted and barely campaigned there. Trump took the state by only 23,000 votes.

How did this happen?

Hitt told the AP that the hackers were able to steal the funds by altering vendor invoices.

From the AP:

Hitt said the hackers manipulated invoices from four vendors who were being paid for direct mail for Trump’s reelection efforts as well as for pro-Trump material such as hats to be handed out to supporters. Invoices and other documents were altered so when the party paid them for the services rendered, the money went to the hackers instead of the vendors, Hitt said.

The hack was discovered after someone noticed that an invoice was generated that should not have been, he said.

How is the race going in Wisconsin?

Polls in the state have varied wildly over the last week.

For example, a Washington Post/ABC News poll reported Wednesday showed Biden with a 17-point lead over Trump, 57% to 40%. The poll was conducted Oct. 20-25.

However, a new Trafalgar Group poll conducted Oct. 24-25 showed Biden with lead of less than half a point, 47.5% to 47.1%

According to RealClearPolitics’ average of polls, Biden currently leads Trump by an average of 6.4 percentage points.

The RealClearPolitics site shows that on this date (Oct. 29) four years ago, Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump by an average of 6.2 points. She had a 6.5-point lead going into Election Day.

Kamala Harris says she will NOT bring socialist policies to a Biden administration

“60 Minutes” correspondent Norah O’Donnell pressed Sen. Kamala Harris on her reputation of being considered “the most liberal United States senator.”

In this clip, Pat Gray discussed the interview, and how O’Donnell pushed Harris about being a socialist.

“As we’ve said multiple times, [Kamala Harris] is the most liberal person, the most progressive senator we had in all of the Senate,” Pat said, “including Bernie Sanders, including Elizabeth Warren.”

O’Donnell sought clarification on whether Harris would support the policies of running mate, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Harris noted that Biden did not share her support for socialist policies, including the Green New Deal and legalizing marijuana.

“Are going to bring those progressive policies — that you supported as senator — into a Biden administration,” O’Donnell asked.

In Harris’ response, she claimed part of a deal she made with Biden was to share her lived experience and give an honest perspective on policy matters.

“And is that a socialist or progressive perspective?” O’Donnell asked.

Harris said she would not bring a socialist perspective to the table. Harris added that she would not have joined the Democratic ticket if she didn’t support Biden’s vision for America.

In Harris’ response, she claimed part of a deal she made with Biden was to share her lived experience and give an honest perspective on policy matters.

“And is that a socialist or progressive perspective?” O’Donnell asked.

Harris said she would not bring a socialist perspective to the table. Harris added that she would not have joined the Democratic ticket if she didn’t support Biden’s vision for America.

2020 Election anti-Trump Donald Trump Intelwars Leftists Lincoln project presidential term limits Third term watch

New Lincoln Project ad implies Trump has won third presidential term — and leftists are reacting to ad with ‘pain & rage’

The Lincoln Project — a group of Republicans intent on getting President Donald Trump voted out of office — released a dramatic new ad Monday night titled “Good Night, America.”

And boy, does it ever have leftists flipping out.

What are the details?

Beginning with a nighttime scene in a house with heart-stirring taps on piano keys, a mother opens the door to her young son’s bedroom as a sounds from a TV news station follow her in.

She has the look of someone who’s about to break the news that there was a death in the family.

The mother bends down to her sleeping boy, rousing him awake with a soft entreaty: “Hey, honey.”

“Hey, Mommy,” her son replies.

“You asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election,” she continues.

Image source: Twitter video screenshot

“Who won?” the boy inquires.

“Trump,” the mom answers with subtle disgust. “Trump won.”

The boy seems perplexed: “I thought you could only be president two times.”

Image source: Twitter video screenshot

The mother pauses and appears distressed before relaying even more terrible news: “Not any more.”

With that, white text on a black background flashes on the screen: “STOP HIM OR IT WILL NEVER STOP” and “VOTE HIM OUT.”

What has been the reaction?

To say nothing about the ad’s glaring flaw — the son’s shock presumably regarding the abolition of presidential term limits would’ve occurred long before Election Day — conservatives are getting a big laugh over the video’s ridiculous premise.

Becket Adams of the Washington Examiner said he “audibly snorted” in laughter while watching the spot. Others reacted similarly:

  • “Holy s**t I am choking from laughing too hard,” another commenter noted.
  • “Do these people not understand that in order for this to happen we would have to amend the Constitution, a process which would require 38 states to ratify a new amendment repealing the 22nd Amendment?” another commenter asked. “Who am I kidding, of course they f***ing don’t.”

And here’s a nifty suggestion borrowing from “The Handmaid’s Tale”:

But the ad put leftists and other anti-Trump folks in anything but a lighthearted mood:

  • “I’m literally wide awake in the middle of the night bc of this very anxiety,” one Twitter user wrote in reaction to the ad.
  • “I am so filled with pain & rage,” another commented. “I can’t even begin to describe that inconsolable pain & rage. I’ve watched with horror for 40 years as the country has crumbled under right wing propaganda & destruction. And yet I’m still stunned where we are today. If we don’t stop it we’re done.”
  • Another responded, “You are doing better than I am at finding words today. This is exactly how I feel. And the rage is so destructive. Trying hard not to turn it in on myself. It is so hard to fathom that we’re here. I don’t know wtf is wrong with people. How will we fix this even when he’s gone?”

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Donald Trump Intelwars Joe Biden

Biden campaign targeting Georgia and Texas in final week; Trump focusing on Midwest?

As the 2020 campaign winds to a close, the re-election campaign of President Donald Trump appears focused on re-creating the surprise Midwest sweep that carried him to victory in 2016, while the Biden campaign seems focused on the unlikely task of stealing either Texas or Georgia from Trump’s column.

According to the president’s campaign schedule, Trump plans to appear at rallies on Tuesday in Lansing, Michigan; West Salem, Wisconsin; and Omaha, Nebraska; before heading to Bullhead City, Arizona, to speak to voters in Arizona and Nevada. These events will be followed by a Thursday rally in Des Moines with Vice President Mike Pence.

Meanwhile, on the Democratic side, the Biden campaign appears increasingly convinced that two large, normally reliable red states are in play, as Biden will make a rare emergence from his basement to hold two Tuesday events in Georgia.

Meanwhile, Democratic mega-donor and former presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is apparently convinced that Biden can win both Ohio and Texas and is spending millions of dollars for last-minute television ads in the Lone Star State. According to a New York Times report, Bloomberg’s Independence USA Super PAC plans to spend a total of $15 million in the two states. According to the Times, the PAC has been “convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets,” and aides convinced Bloomberg to greenlight the massive ad buy in the two states.

Democrats held similar hopes for Georgia and Texas in 2016, and both contests were more competitive than they had been in years past; however, Trump ended up carrying Texas by a relatively comfortable 10-point margin and Georgia by almost 6 points. By contrast, Mitt Romney won Texas by 16 points and Georgia by 8 points in 2012, even though he lost the national election to Barack Obama.

Clearly, then, Texas and Georgia are trending toward the Democratic Party, but only a truly massive national wave in favor of Biden would realistically put either state in play.

Meanwhile, in a replay of 2016, the Biden campaign has faced significant criticism for what many Democratic insiders consider an anemic attempt to hold the fort against incursions into traditional Democratic Midwestern strongholds like Michigan. As recently as mid-September, the Biden campaign was unable to identify a single field office in Michigan for its campaign. Biden has, at least, made some late-year appearances in the Midwest, which Hillary Clinton was roundly criticized for neglecting to do in 2016.

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protests BLM Intelwars NYPD Police Union

NYPD union attacks city leadership’s ‘double standard’ for suspending ‘Trump 2020’ cop but praising chief for kneeling with BLM protesters

New York City leaders were enraged over the weekend after an NYPD officer declared “Trump 2020” over his patrol car loudspeaker multiple times Saturday night and told the public they would find and deal with him.

Now that NYPD officials have suspended the officer, the police union is ripping city and police leadership for their actions, declaring the move to be a blatant double standard, the New York Post reported.

What happened?

After video of the cop’s actions went viral, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) vowed to find and take action against the offending officer, saying, “Let me be clear: ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences. We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated.”

NYPD officials also said they were investigating the incident, and Chief of Department Terence Monahan promised the cop in question would “be dealt with.”

According to the Post, police sources identified the officer as Arthur Becerra of the 70th Precinct, and he was suspended without pay Sunday.

What did the union say?

The Sergeants Benevolent Association went after NYPD and city leadership, accusing them of a “double standard” since the officials who declared a political statement by law enforcement to be “one hundred percent unacceptable” had only praise for Chief Monahan when he took a knee with Black Lives Matter protesters.

“The NYPD has a history of officers making political & outside the norm statements & ignoring it,” the SBA tweeted. “Suspending, this officer is unnecessary & way over the top. Chief of Departrnent [sic] took a knee with protestors no disciplinary action was issued. What if the officer supported Biden?”

After the NYPD reported that the officer who had shouted “Trump 2020” had been immediately suspended without pay, the SBA responded, “What’s the status of this investigation? Oh wait double standard white shirt immunity!” — referring to Monahan’s BLM protest photo.

Then the union had a direct comment for Monahan himself, saying that his … manhood … was under the control of Mayor de Blasio.

“Terence you said nothing when Captains & Chiefs took a knee with violent protesters who injured members of the NYPD,” the SBA tweeted. “You say nothing to those who sing & dance in uniform. Now your little itsy-bitsy balls are in DeBlasio’s [sic] palm & you tweet nonsense. Relax & take a knee!”

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Great Reset Intelwars Joe Biden World Economic Forum

Commentary: Joe Biden has deep ties to the radical ‘Great Reset’ movement and its globalist leaders

On Nov. 3, Joe Biden could be elected the next president of the United States, but most Americans still do not know the truth about Biden’s radical ideology.

Despite having sold himself as a “moderate” Democrat for decades, Biden has consistently shown that his views on globalism and America’s place in the world are far from mainstream.

This argument is best proven by examining Biden’s close ties to the World Economic Forum, which is now pushing for a remarkably troubling “Great Reset” of capitalism, and the many statements Biden has made over the past several years echoing Great Reset ideology.

The Great Reset movement has been widely adopted by numerous world leaders, including the head of the United Nations, Prince Charles, the International Monetary Fund, international trade unions, and CEOs of major corporations.

Using the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change as the justifications for a fundamental transformation of the world’s economy, the Great Reset movement aims to destroy modern capitalism and replace it with a system that embraces numerous left-wing social programs, such as basic income systems and the Green New Deal, as well as force all corporations around the world to adopt leftist social justice causes.

In an article published on the World Economic Forum’s website, WEF founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab — who is spearheading much of the Great Reset movement globally — wrote that “the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.”

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” Schwab also wrote. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

Schwab and other supporters of the Great Reset blame many of the world’s problems on the perceived failure of the existing “social contract” and what they call “shareholder capitalism” — the current economic system in much of the Western world.

Under “shareholder capitalism,” individuals can buy shares of companies, which are then expected to produce goods and services they can sell to customers for a profit. (Sounds terrible, I know!)

Although Biden, to my knowledge, has never been asked directly about whether he supports the Great Reset, he has made numerous comments echoing similar talking points. For example, in July, Biden called for the end of the “era of shareholder capitalism.”

Additionally, just like the World Economic Forum and supporters of the Great Reset, Biden has said government should use the coronavirus pandemic as a justification to “rewrite the social contract” of the United States.

Biden’s “Build Back Better” plans also come straight out of the Great Reset movement’s playbook. For many years, supporters of the Great Reset at the World Economic Forum and elsewhere have talked about “building back better” by dramatically expanding the power of government, pursuing costly “green” infrastructure plans, and substantially increasing the authority of international institutions.

Biden’s proposals would do just that, and the “Build Back Better” name is just too similar to what others affiliated with the Great Reset movement and/or the World Economic Forum have said to be a mere coincidence.

For example, in 2016, a development specialist at the World Bank, discussing climate change-related natural disasters, wrote for the WEF, “The pressure for governments now is not to wait until a disaster strikes to ‘build back better.’ Instead, the urgent need is to build better now, and to thoroughly assess current risks to industrial infrastructure.”

In May 2020, the World Economic Forum posted to its website an article titled “‘Building Back Better’ — Here’s How We Can Navigate the Risks We Face After COVID-19,” in which the writer argued, “We have looked at ways to ‘build back better’ and it’s very clear that investing in greener economies is going to be a huge part of recovery efforts.”

On July 13, 2020, less than a week after Biden called for an “end to the era of shareholder capitalism” while promoting his own “Build Back Better” plan, the World Economic Forum published a piece titled “To Build Back Better, We Must Reinvent Capitalism. Here’s How.”

And these examples are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many others showing the WEF using the “build back better” slogan prior to and following Biden’s release of his Build Back Better policy proposals.

Biden also has close ties to numerous Great Reset advocates and leaders at the World Economic Forum, where Biden has on multiple occasions delivered keynote addresses.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry — the co-chair of Joe Biden’s climate change “Unity Taskforce” and a man many believe could serve in Biden’s administration — has publicly backed the Great Reset and called for reforms to the American “social contract.”

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has been named to Biden’s transition team, is a member of the WEF’s Forum of Young Global Leaders. Buttigieg’s climate policy adviser, David Victor, is affiliated with the World Economic Forum and authored in June 2020 a lengthy article for Yale University titled “Building Back Better: Why Europe Must Lead a Global Green Recovery.”

Further, Biden has close relationships with at least three World Economic Forum board members who support, to varying degrees, the Great Reset platform: Al Gore, David Rubenstein, and Laurence Fink, the chairman and CEO of BlackRock, whom many Democratic donors have reportedly pushed to be Biden’s choice for treasury secretary.

Additionally, WEF board member and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff is a longtime supporter of Kamala Harris, Biden’s 2020 running mate.

More evidence of Biden’s intimate relationship with Great Reset advocates can be found in the launch of the Biden Institute, which is based at the University of Delaware. In 2017, when the Biden Institute first started, Biden said he wanted to model some of the new organization’s activities after the World Economic Forum, and he even met with the WEF’s leader and the world’s biggest advocate of the Great Reset, Klaus Schwab, to help develop a plan for the future of the Institute.

Taken together, Biden’s policy plans, campaign messaging, and connections with key Great Reset figures seem to point toward a very troubling conclusion: Joe Biden is likely an advocate of the radical Great Reset, a proposal that, if enacted, would completely overhaul the world’s economy in favor of more collectivism and the centralization of power in the hands of international elites.

That might sound unbelievable, but when there’s smoke, there’s almost always fire.

Three things Americans are doing to prepare for election chaos, another coronavirus spike and deepening economic problems

Do you remember how crazy things got when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit the United States and widespread hoarding caused serious shortages of certain goods all over the United States?  Well, it is starting to happen again.  As we approach the end of 2020, a “perfect storm” of circumstances is causing the anxiety level of many Americans to go through the roof, and millions are preparing for the worst.  I have been hearing from so many people that are deeply concerned about what the outcome of this presidential election could mean for our nation, and a lot of them truly believe that we will witness tremendous civil unrest.  But as an article in the Washington Post recently noted, that isn’t the only thing we are potentially facing…

Add a frightening pandemic, a burst of protest and anger about racial inequalities, and a sudden economic collapse, and the result is pervasive mistrust, a sense that the world’s most powerful nation can no longer come together in common cause.

“We’re facing a difficult time,” Barkun said. “The threat — the virus — is invisible, and that makes it more frightening. There’s an increasingly widespread belief that authority — scientific, political, informational — is suspect. It can be more comforting to believe in an unpleasant outcome than to embrace uncertainty.”

In modern times, there has never been a year quite like 2020 when we have had to face so many major challenges all at once, and now a lot of people out there are convinced that things could shortly go to an entirely new level.

Many believe that the civil unrest after the election could be even worse than what we saw earlier this year, others believe that the worst part of the COVID-19 pandemic lies in the weeks ahead, and our economic problems just seem to keep escalating.

With so much going wrong, many have decided that now is the time to prepare for worst case scenarios.  The following are three ways that Americans are preparing for the chaotic months that are in front of us…

#1 The stockpiling has already started

If there are some things that you want to purchase before things get really crazy out there, you may want to do it as soon as possible, because retailers around the country have already been reporting new shortages

Shoppers and retailers are reporting that certain items are already running low, including liquid hand soap, disinfecting wipes and canning jars (especially lids). Some products have been difficult to find ever since the first wave.

But a wintery second wave could trigger new shortages, as Americans spend even more time indoors. In a panel discussion with doctors from Harvard Medical School in September, White House adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Americans should prepare to “hunker down to get through this fall and winter.”

As I write this article, the election is just over a week away.  If the outcome of the presidential election causes protests and rioting to erupt in cities all over the nation, that is likely to make the emerging shortages even worse.

#2 Americans are buying lots and lots of guns

We have never seen Americans purchase guns as fast as they have been buying them this year.  At one gun shop in Orange County, the owner literally has a hard time keeping any guns on the shelves at all…

At Ade’s Gun Shop in Orange County, owner Emily Atkinson can’t keep up with demand – she’s seeing a run on guns during this pandemic, similar to the run on toilet paper.

“We would put 20 guns out and they would be sold in three hours,” Atkinson said. “We were doing in two weeks what we would do in a quarter.”

And I am being told that in some parts of the country ammunition is in very short supply right now.  We have already seen so much senseless violence all over the U.S. so far this year, and a lot of people believe that much more is on the way and they want to be ready to protect their families.

#3 Concern about what is coming has fueled a crazy real estate boom

It is very strange to talk about a massive real estate boom during the midst of an economic depression, but that is precisely what we are witnessing.

In recent months we have seen an unprecedented mass exodus out of our major cities, and “millions of house hunters” have been driving up prices in desirable rural and suburban locations all across the nation…

The COVID-19 pandemic, the loss of millions of jobs, a weaker economy—none of it stopped millions of house hunters from flocking to Zillow, Redfin, and other online platforms to browse, plan their move, and, in many cases, purchase their first home.

Home prices have been climbing steadily over the past few months, and industry players are projecting they are likely to peak in some markets this fall, causing a tempering of the market driven by a decline in supply and a prolonged economic recovery.

I certainly can’t blame anyone that wants to move.  If I was living in one of our major cities, I would be looking to get out too.

Coming into this year, I kept warning that we were heading into a “perfect storm”, and that is precisely what has happened.  It has just been one thing after another here in 2020, and many believe that 2021 will be even more chaotic.

As for the immediate future, so much depends on the outcome of the election.

If a clear winner is declared shortly after Election Day, that may help to minimize the amount of chaos that we witness in the streets.

But if the results are very close and are bitterly contested for weeks, things could get out of hand very rapidly.  And no matter which side ends up winning in that sort of a scenario, there are going to be millions upon millions of people on the other side that will feel like the election was stolen from them.

There are countless numbers of people out there that will never accept a Trump victory under any circumstances, and there are countless numbers of others that will never accept Joe Biden as president.

I feel like we are on the precipice of a really bad chapter in American history, and at this point it is going to take some sort of a miracle to avoid it.

2020 Election black community black voters CNN Intelwars Internet reactions President Trump Twitter reactions Van Jones

CNN’s Van Jones attacked by liberals for saying Trump ‘has done good stuff for the black community’ and ‘does not get enough credit’

CNN commentator Van Jones applauded President Donald Trump for the work he has done for the black community. Liberals immediately turned on Jones, lashing out at the progressive pundit for giving Trump even the slightest acknowledgment that the president has attempted to help black Americans.

On Friday night, Jones appeared on CNN with host Jake Tapper. The panel was discussing the final presidential debate, specifically Trump’s comment that he’s “done more for the black community than any other president.”

“Donald Trump — and I get beat up by liberals every time I say this, but I’m gonna keep saying it — he has done good stuff for the black community,” Jones said on CNN. “Opportunity zone stuff, black college stuff. I worked with him on criminal justice stuff. I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formerly incarcerated, in the White House — embraced them, treated them well. There’s a side to Donald Trump that I think he does not get enough credit for.”

Former NFL Hall of Famer and Trump ally Herschel Walker posted the video clip with the caption: “Because @VanJones68 speaks the truth on @realDonaldTrump people get upset. The American people deserve the truth from the MSM!”

Despite Jones being extremely critical of Trump for years on nearly every single subject, leftists were enraged that he gave Trump credit. The praise of Trump was swiftly met with condemnation of Jones, a former Obama White House adviser.

“Jeeesus why is Van Jones still talking about anything? What an embarrassment. @VanJones68,” an online commenter wrote.

“Every time I think Van Jones has turned a corner, he disappoints,” another Twitter user said.

“Yeah. Stop listening to Van Jones,” another person opined.

“Van Jones is a SELL OUT, yeah I said it,” one person declared.

“Van Jones is a Trumper. At the end of the day, that’s who he is,” a commenter alleged.

Besides Jones, 50 Cent was also recently lambasted for showing support for Trump. The rapper’s ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Handler, blasted 50 Cent for saying he would vote for Trump because he was terrified of the high taxes he might have to pay if Joe Biden is elected.

“I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump,” Handler told late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon. Many considered the comedian’s comments to be “racist.”

Jones’ praise of Trump arrives only days after hip-hop radio host Charlamagne Tha God admitted that the president is making a real effort to court young black male voters.

“When it comes to the black people you see showing support for Trump, I just think, you know, it’s because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters. He is directing ads toward them,” said Charlamagne Tha God, whose real name is Lenard Larry McKelvey.

2020 Election Biden chumps Biden rally Intelwars Joe Biden Presidential Election Trump rally Trump Supporters

Trump supporters crash Biden rally, Joe calls them ‘chumps;’ Trump says Biden rallies have ‘tiny crowds’

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden both held rallies on Saturday as both candidates make a final push before the Nov. 3 presidential election. Unfortunately for the Biden campaign, their rally turned into a Trump rally.

Biden held a drive-in rally in Bristol, Pennsylvania, north of Philadelphia. There were reportedly 170 cars at the drive-in rally for the Democratic presidential nominee.

The Biden rally quickly became a Trump rally when supporters of the president swarmed the area. CNN political correspondent MJ Lee said, “Practically a Trump drive-in rally here now outside the Biden drive-in event.”

Reportedly, the Trump supporters were honking their horns and using megaphones, including one person who chanted, “Four more years!” Biden called the Pennsylvania Trump supporters “chumps” twice during Saturday’s rally.

“By the way, we don’t do things like those chumps out there with the microphone are doing, the Trump guys,” Biden said. “Look, we’ve got to come together.”

“I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as those who do, including those chumps at the microphone out there,” Biden said, then coughing into his hand. “That’s the job of a president, the duty to care for everyone. The duty to heal.”

Biden seemed extra angry on Saturday

Meanwhile, Trump held a campaign rally in Lumberton, North Carolina. During his speech, the president lampooned Biden over his “tiny crowds” at his drive-in rallies.

“People in cars. I don’t get it. They’re in cars,” Trump said. “There were so few cars. I’ve never seen an audience like this.”

“His partner, the media, the media made a mistake. They made a tragic mistake. They showed the crowd,” Trump told the audience. “They were screaming, ‘Don’t do it! Don’t show the crowd!”

Trump called the rally a “tiny, tiny little crowd.” “You heard a couple of horns — honk! Honk!”

After the North Carolina rally, Trump is scheduled to make two more campaign stops on Saturday in Circleville, Ohio, and Waukesha, Wisconsin.

2020 Election 50 cent Chelsea Handler election Intelwars Joe Biden President Trump

Chelsea Handler scolded 50 Cent for supporting Trump: ‘I had to remind him that he was a black person’

Comedian Chelsea Handler made a controversial comment this week when she ordered 50 Cent to not support President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Handler told 50 Cent that he’s not allowed to vote for Trump because he is a black man. Many deemed the statement to be “racist.”

50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, announced he was supporting Trump earlier this week. 50 Cent’s vote for Trump was more motivated by Joe Biden’s tax increases. On Monday, Jackson shared a screenshot from CNBC’s “Power Lunch” news show. The graphic showed how the highest earners would see their tax rates rise if Joe Biden is elected, surpassing 62%.

“WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUTF*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind.”

The next day, Jackson followed up with a tweet that said, “Yeah, i don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very,bad idea. i don’t like it !” The tweet included a video clip from Fox News discussing 50 Cent’s desire to not pay higher taxes.

(Content Warning: Explicit language):

Then Chelsea Handler, Jackson’s ex-girlfriend, lambasted 50 Cent for supporting Trump. “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend,” she told Jackson.

To which 50 Cent responded, “oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl.”

“Hey f***er! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter,” Handler wrote to Jackson. “That’s you, f***er! Remember?”

Handler appeared on “The Tonight Show” on Friday, where she discussed her ex-boyfriend who she briefly dated in 2011.

“So he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,” Handler told late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon.

Handler’s assumption that Jackson has to vote for the Democratic presidential nominee because he is black, is reminiscent of Joe Biden’s abrasive comments in May when he said, “Well, I’ll tell you what: If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Many online commenters deemed Handler’s comment that a black man can’t vote for Trump as “racist.”

Radio host Wayne Dupree said, “This is proof that white liberals are the most racist, rude, and nasty people towards the black community.”

Allie Beth Stuckey, host of the “Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey” podcast on BlazeTV, said, “Chelsea Handler made a documentary about how to be less racist, which means she made lots of money at the expense of black people. Obviously this makes her the voice of black America.”

“The Rush Limbaugh Show” producer Bo Snerdley tweeted, “This woman is the definition of ignorant and arrogant – at the same time. She has the right to “remind” Black person they are Black?”

“Chelsea Handler doesn’t even realize how racist her statement about 50 Cent was,” political commentator Austen “Fleccas” Fletcher said.

During the interview, Handler told Fallon she is willing to “seal the deal in more ways than one” in order for her ex-boyfriend to not vote for Trump. “I might be willing to go for another spin, if you know what I’m talking about,” she hinted.

2020 Election Energy Intelwars Internet reactions Joe Biden Joe biden oil President Trump presidential debate Twitter reactions

Biden campaign tries to walk back Joe’s ‘transition from the oil industry’ debate statement after being ripped online

During the final presidential debate on Thursday, Joe Biden pledged to transition away from fossil fuels. The statement caused alarm for many who are worried about the economic impact of losing the energy industry, and the potential devastation on the labor force.

Following the debate, the campaign and Biden himself “clarified” his comments about the oil industry that drew ire.

“By the way, I have a transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden said during the presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee.

President Donald Trump immediately became giddy about Biden’s revelation by saying, “Oh, that’s a big statement.”

The Democratic presidential nominee responded, “I will transition. It is a big statement,” which was echoed by Trump, “That’s a big statement.”

Debate moderator Kristen Welker asked Biden, “Why would you do that?”

He responded, “Because the oil industry pollutes, significantly. It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time, over time, and I’d stop giving to the oil industry, I’d stop giving them federal subsidies.”

Trump pounced on Biden’s statement, “He is going to destroy the oil industry. Will you remember that Texas? Will you remember that Pennsylvania? Oklahoma?”

Biden claimed that President Trump doesn’t give federal subsidies to the solar and wind industries.

Trump fired back, “We actually give it to solar and wind.”

A fact-check by WUSA said Biden’s claim that Trump “won’t give federal subsidies to solar and wind” was false.

“There are currently tax credits available to both the wind and solar industry — like the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit for Wind,” WUSA stated. “It offers tax credits per kilowatt-hour for ‘utility-scale wind.’ It was actually extended under the Trump administration in December last year.”

The internet reacted to Biden’s statement that he would transition the United States away from the oil industry.

“Biden wants to ‘transition’ away from the oil industry. He just killed paycheck earned by hardworking families in Texas. Joe just wants to transition away from Texas. Remember that on election day,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) wrote on Twitter.

“Hey Texas and Pennsylvania, @JoeBiden just admitted he would transition from the oil industry, effectively killing an estimated 11 million jobs,” Rick Perry, Trump’s former energy secretary and a former governor of Texas, said.

Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said, “I thought @realDonaldTrump was strong last night. Stark differences between Biden and Trump: free enterprise vs socialism, energy independence vs getting rid of oil and fracking, health care options vs govt run healthcare. Strong foreign policy vs buying friends.”

Kendra Horn, a Democratic House candidate in the oil-rich state of Oklahoma, disagreed with Biden, “We must stand up for our oil and gas industry. We need an all-of-the-above energy approach that’s consumer friendly, values energy independence, and protects OK jobs. I’ll keep fighting for that in Congress.”

“If Biden gets in, not only will he destroy the Oil & Gas industry (and millions of American jobs and lives), we can all say goodbye to these unbelievably good gas prices,” Eric Trump tweeted. “Don’t forget the nearly $5 per gallon we were paying under O’Biden.”

“What this translates to is hundreds of thousands of jobs gone in the blink of an eye. This is dangerous. It puts the prosperity of countless Americans at risk, and we cannot allow it to happen,” George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush, and grandson of former President George H. W. Bush, said.

In 2019, traditional energy and energy efficiency sectors employed about 6.8 million Americans, roughly 4.6% of the U.S. workforce, according to a report from the Energy Futures Initiative and National Association of State Energy Officials.

Following the debate, before boarding a plane home, Biden tried to clean up his oil comment.

“We’re not getting rid of fossil fuels,” Biden said. “We’re getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time.”

When asked if dismantling the U.S. oil industry would cost millions of American jobs, Biden replied, “Well, they’re not going to lose their jobs. … And, besides, there are a lot more jobs that are going to be created in other alternatives.”

The Biden campaign tried to walk back the vice president’s comment on oil from the debate. Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager and communications director, attempted to “clarify” Biden’s remarks.

“Biden’s team seeks to clarify Biden’s remarks on the oil industry, with @KBeds saying that Biden was referring to ending oil subsidies,” according to Washington Post reporter Annie Linskey.

Biden was also grilled by President Trump over his past comments that showed that he was against fracking. Biden said he doesn’t want to ban fracking, but fact-checkers found a history of Biden being opposed to fracking and wanting to phase it out.

Emails allegedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop and reported text messages from one of his business partners, allege that Joe Biden was involved in a “lucrative” venture with a Chinese energy corporation, which named “crude oil and natural gas” as the “major drivers” of the company’s revenue.

2020 Election Banning fracking Biden fracking Debate fact check Fracking Intelwars Joe Biden President Trump presidential debate Trump fracking

Biden dares Trump to share proof of anti-fracking comments — Trump posts video; fact-checkers say Biden has opposed fracking

The final presidential debate Thursday was fraught with heated discussion, including when President Donald Trump vigorously challenged Joe Biden on his stance regarding fracking. Biden reacted by demanding the president share proof that he is against fracking, so Trump did just that.

“We’re going to have the greatest economy in the world, but if you want to kill the economy, get rid of your oil industry you want,” President Trump said. Then he asked Biden, “And what about fracking?”

“I never said I oppose fracking,” Biden responded.

Trump reacted by saying, “You said it on tape.”

Biden responded, “Show the tape, put it on your website.”

“I’ll put it on,” Trump declared.

“Put it on the website,” Biden said. “The fact of the matter is he’s flat lying.”

Moderator Kristen Welker asked Biden, “Would you rule out about banning fracking?”

“I do rule out banning fracking because the answer we need, we need other industries to transition, to get to ultimately a complete zero emissions by 2025,” Biden answered. “What I will do with fracking over time is make sure that we can capture the emissions from the fracking, capture the emissions from gas. We can do that and we can do that by investing money in doing it, but it’s a transition to that.”

By the time Thursday night’s presidential debate had ended, the Trump campaign released a video compilation of Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) making remarks opposing fracking. By Friday morning, the video had over 10 million views and over 325,000 Likes.

The video starts out with a clip from the Democratic primary debate in July, where CNN anchor Dana Bash asks Biden if there would be “any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking” in his administration.

“No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel,” Biden stated.

Other video clips show Biden saying, “We’re going to end fossil fuels” and “I’d gradually move away from fracking,”

Harris is seen on video saying, “And, I think it’s critically important on day one that we end any fossil fuel leases on public lands.” The video ends with Harris saying, “There’s no question that I’m in favor of banning fracking.”

The Trump campaign is highlighting Biden’s extremely wobbly response on the fracking issue because it could influence voters in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, and Oklahoma — states that depend on oil and natural gas from fracking.

President Trump played the video on Tuesday during his campaign rally in Erie, Pennsylvania. Vice President Mike Pence is also playing the fracking video on the campaign trail, according to The Hill.

CNN did a fact check on Biden’s history of fracking comments and admitted: “Biden falsely claims he never opposed fracking.”

Biden also said he was against “new fracking” in a Democratic primary debate in March when challenged by his opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders, on the issue of climate change. His campaign clarified to reporters that same evening that Biden was reiterating his plan to ban oil and gas permits on public land, not a complete ban on new fracking, which a president cannot do.

On “Anderson Cooper 360°,” CNN’s fact-checker Daniel Dale said it was wrong for Biden to say he never opposed fracking.

“In this case, Trump is correct, Biden did make anti-fracking comments in 2019 and 2020, and Trump was not lying,” Dale told Anderson Cooper.

Dale mentioned that the official Biden campaign stance is not for banning fracking, but has proposed banning new gas and oil permits on federal land, but Biden’s comments against fracking complicates the situation.

On the Biden campaign website, it calls for “ending subsidies for fossil fuels” in “his first year and redirecting these resources to the historic investment in clean energy infrastructure.”

The Biden campaign is “committed to achieving a 100% clean energy economy and net-zero emissions by 2050,” meaning a complete ban of fossil fuels.

Despite several Democrats promising to ban fracking, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris, the president can not issue an outright ban on fracking across the United States.

Hydraulic fracturing is a drilling technique to release oil and natural gas from deep underground by injecting fluid at high pressure.

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Donald Trump Intelwars Suburban women

Commentary: Hey, suburban women, you’re being played

This week in the cesspool of utter madness that is swallowing up a once great nation…

A former partner of Hunter Biden has confirmed that the drug addict was inserted into high places within Chinese and Ukrainian business circles in order to trade access to then-Vice President Joe Biden for cash. You may remember China as the country that poisoned the entire world with the coronavirus earlier this year and Ukraine as the nation used as a foil to impeach Donald Trump. But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

Speaking of the coronavirus, a Danish newspaper has reported that three of the largest scientific journals in the world have refused to publish for the purpose of peer review (aka scrutiny) the first major scientific study investigating the efficacy of masks as a deterrent for viral spread. Damn, Fauci would be proud. That’s some quality memory holing right there. Maybe the mask study will find Sweden down at the bottom of the upside down. But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

In other memory hole news, Twitter blocked the accounts of Trump coronavirus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas, the New York Post, the press secretary for the president of the United States, the Babylon Bee, and the Senate Judiciary Committee for crimes against humanity such as free speech, funny jokes about ducks, accurate medical expertise, actual journalism, and uncovering government corruption. But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

You know whose Twitter account hasn’t been blocked? Jeffrey Toobin. One of CNN’s most celebrated progressive propagandists, he was caught masturbating while on a Zoom call with his colleagues. Not only was he not fired, but multiple newspapers wrote editorials defending his actions as commonplace and that Toobin was being unfairly maligned due to prudishness and spite. And this is all after Toobin was previously, ahem, exposed for bullying a colleague’s daughter whom he impregnated into getting an abortion, then refusing to pay child support. #metoo used to be an actual thing, right? Darn memory hole again. But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

What’s that you say about harassing women? The Democrats on the Senate Judiciary committee are boycotting a vote to approve a Catholic mother of seven who graduated top of her class as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court because, well, she’s a Catholic mother of seven. Didn’t Amy Coney Barrett get the memo about how God, babies and two genders are everything this nation was founded to destroy? But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

Destroying education is also fun. Just ask the Karens in some of the nation’s largest school districts who are insisting that no one return to in-person class until August of 2021. None of the science or data supports that, so obviously the teacher’s unions are full speed ahead. Like in California, where they want to “dispel the myth that male and female sex organs are different.” Sounds totally normal. But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

And lastly, the Avengers actors were given untold Thanos snaps this week after even the most leftist among them proved unworthy of the woke mob’s lust for hatred. When Chris Pratt declined to join his fellow cast members at an event to endorse Biden, he started taking abuse on social media. Then, to their great credit, the Biden-supporting cast members rallied around Pratt and endorsed him as a nice guy who was afforded all the same rights they were. Which, I’m sure you can guess, pissed off the woke mob even more than they originally were with Pratt, including the vile trashing of Zoe Saldana, a black women. But sure, suburban women, Trump is your problem.

Oh, and don’t forget Biden wants 8-year-olds to transgender themselves.

Suburban women have a clear choice, and it’s not really Trump versus Biden. Because while Trump isn’t your problem, it’s also fair to say he might not really be your solution in many ways, either. But — and this is a very big but — he just isn’t “them.”

Them? A reality-hating tribe that is clearly willing to throw out, burn, loot, and destroy whatever you think a woman is. None of it fundamentally matters to them. It is dark, decadent power they worship at an altar where femininity not only isn’t valued, it is designated for the pagan memory hole along with everything else that is good, true, and beautiful.

Laws don’t matter. Science doesn’t matter. Life doesn’t matter. God doesn’t matter. Decency doesn’t matter. And Biden was necromanced into the role of Democrat candidate for president because he would unquestioningly serve such chaos.

So who, suburban women, are you voting for again?

2020 Election Big guy Hunter biden Hunter biden laptop Intelwars Joe Biden President Trump presidential debate Tony bobulinski

Trump to bring Hunter Biden’s former business partner to final debate as his special guest

President Donald Trump will reportedly have Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, as his special guest at Thursday night’s presidential debate. Much like he did in the 2016 presidential debates, Trump will attempt to use his special guest to gain a psychological edge against his opponent.

President Trump has allegedly invited Bobulinski, the former business associate of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. Bobulinski became a potential factor in the 2020 presidential election this week when he came forward to confirm that the New York Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings with a Chinese energy company is “genuine.”

Bobulinski became a possible thorn in the side of Joe Biden after he claimed that the “big guy” named in an email about a business venture with Shanghai-based CEFC China Energy Co was, in fact, the Democratic presidential nominee.

“Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing,” said Bobulinski. “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”

Joe Biden has repeatedly said that he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Bobulinski, who is a former wrestler at Penn State University, said he’s “not a political person.” “What few campaign contributions I have made in my life were to Democrats,” he told the New York Post.

“I don’t have a political axe to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned about what I saw,” Bobulinski said. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.”

“I myself served our country for 4 years and left the Navy as LT Bobulinski,” he said. “I held a high level security clearance and was an instructor and then CTO for Naval Nuclear Power Training Command.”

Following his stint in the military, Bobulinski became an institutional investor who invested “extensively around the world and on every continent.”

He is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he said “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.”

Bobulinski is reportedly cooperating with an investigation into Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings that is being led by U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). Bobulinski allegedly handed over a trove of emails, text messages, and documents showing Hunter Biden’s dealings with the now-bankrupt Chinese energy corporation to the U.S. Senate committees who are investigating Hunter Biden’s overseas business ventures.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Johnson are said to be interviewing Bobulinksi on Friday, according to Fox News.

“As part of the committees’ efforts to validate the authenticity of recently publicly released emails involving the Biden family’s international financial entanglements, we sent letters to five individuals identified in the emails. Those letters were sent yesterday, and the deadline is October 23, 2020,” Johnson and Grassley said in a statement. “So far, the committees have received a response only from Mr. Tony Bobulinski, who appears to be willing to fully cooperate with our investigation.”

Trump weaponized special guests at the 2016 presidential debate to try to rattle Hillary Clinton. His special guests in 2016 were women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault: Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, and Paula Jones. Trump held a pre-debate press conference with the three women as well as Kathy Shelton, whose rapist was defended by Hillary Clinton in 1975 when she was a lawyer. The women were in the audience during the presidential debate.

Also in 2016, Trump invited Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s half-brother, as his guest to the third presidential debate.

At the first presidential debate this year, Trump’s guests were Alice Johnson, a criminal reform advocate who was serving a life sentence in prison before Trump commuted her sentence in 2018; and Ann Dorn, the widow of former St. Louis police captain David Dorn, who was fatally shot in June while protecting his friend’s pawn shop during riots.

The final presidential debate will take place at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, will run from 9 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.

2020 Election 911 Alexandria ocasio-cortez Among us Anti-american Get out the vote Ilhan omar Intelwars Leftists

AOC, Ilhan Omar take part in online event organized by vlogger who last year said ‘America deserved 9/11’

Far-left U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) took part in an online get-out-the-vote event this week organized by Hasan Piker, an activist vlogger who last year said “America deserved 9/11,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.

What are the details?

The congresswomen played the popular video game “Among Us” and livestreamed it with other gamers Tuesday night on Twitch as part of a voting outreach to young people watching on the platform, USA Today said, adding that over 435,000 people viewed the event.

Ocasio-Cortez noted at the beginning of the stream that Piker, one of the gamers, “wrangled” the event together at the last minute, the Free Beacon said.

Last year, Piker — a former former contributor to the left-wing news and commentary group The Young Turks — attacked U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) in a video and said “America deserved 9/11,” the Free Beacon noted. Crenshaw lost his right eye in 2012 while serving in Iraq.

“This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old,” Piker said of Crenshaw, according to the outlet. “What the f***. What the f*** is wrong with this dude? Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because some mujahideen — a brave f***ing soldier — f***ed his eye hole with their d***.”

Piker also said, “America deserved 9/11, dude. F*** it, I’m saying it.”

Following backlash, Piker admitted his comments were “inappropriate” and poorly executed satire, the Wrap said.

“I didn’t say Americans deserved 9/11 — I said America deserves 9/11,” Piker added, according to the Wrap.

Even Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks called Piker’s words “incredibly crass” and “wrong,” the outlet noted.

Piker’s response? “Maybe you can chalk it up to English being my second language or whatever you want to chalk it up to,” he said, according to the Wrap.

What else?

Twitch suspended Piker for his comments last year, the Free Beacon said.

More from the outlet:

Ocasio-Cortez was scheduled to participate in an event Tuesday evening to honor the late Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin but pulled out last month after facing pressure from Palestinian activists. She has also refused to meet with multiple Jewish leaders and community activists in New York City.

Omar, of course, is well known for anti-Semitism and last year infamously characterized the events of 9/11 as “some people did something.” Ocasio-Cortez defended Omar as backlash hit due to her 9/11 statement, saying criticisms of Omar were an “incitement of violence against progressive women of color,” the Associated Press said.

2020 Election America is an idea Biden campaign Biden gaffe Intelwars Internet reactions Joe Biden Twitter reactions

Biden slammed for saying ‘America was an idea’ that ‘we’ve never lived up to’

Joe Biden proclaimed that the United States of America “was an idea” that “we’ve never lived up to.” The statement by the Democratic presidential nominee was quickly lambasted by many.

Biden made the controversial statement on Wednesday during an interview on the “Unlocking Us with Brené Brown” podcast in the midst of a discussion about the legacy of slavery in the United States.

“America was an idea, an idea. ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident,'” Biden said, quoting the Declaration of Independence. “We’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before. And I just think we have to be more honest. Let our kids know, as we raise them, what actually did happen. Acknowledge our mistakes so we don’t repeat them.”

The Trump campaign responded to Biden’s statement that America was an idea.

“Running for President, Joe Biden’s closing argument is that America has always been a disappointment,” said Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for the Trump campaign. “You know he’s blaming this on you. And after 47 years as a failed DC politician, he wants you to believe that NOW he’ll get it right.”

“@JoeBiden Where have you been for 47 years? America is the greatest nation in the world. We stand for freedom and opportunity for all. Our nation is filled with strong, innovative and hard-working individuals who love this nation & don’t want to fundamentally transform it,” senior adviser to the campaign Mercedes Schlapp wrote on Twitter.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) reacted to Biden comments by saying, “47 years, 0 accomplishments. Americans deserve better than your apology tour.”

Many online commenters pointed out that American soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy to defeat the Nazis and making sacrifices during World War II were times that the country lived up to the “idea of America.”

Political scientist and author Ian Bremmer inquired, “Not even World War II? Creating the United Nations? MacArthur rebuilding Japan? The Marshall Plan?”

“‘We’ve never lived up to it’? Speak for yourself, man!” Center for American Liberty founder and trial lawyer Harmeet Dhillon responded. “This immigrant is so grateful to be an American — and I never diss her or take her for granted.”

Previously, Biden declared that Antifa is an idea. During the first presidential debate, Biden said, “Antifa’s an idea, not an organization.” Biden’s comment was applauded by far-left Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone, who said, “I love that Joe Biden answered this question before me, because being opposed to fascism in 2020 is not something to be embarrassed about.”

Also during the podcast interview, Biden commented on President Donald Trump’s executive order establishing the 1776 Commission to promote “patriotic education.” President Trump said children must be taught that America is “an exceptional, free and just nation, worth defending, preserving and protecting.”

The commission was a response to The New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which was used to “reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black America at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.”

Biden continued, “So I think it’s important we teach history, not in a prescriptive way, from my perspective, but what actually the facts were without also acknowledging that there’s 400 years of racism in the United States of America. That’s what it is. And it’s able to be fixed. And I think most people are starting to step up to it.”
