No, Biden Doesn’t Have a ‘Chinese Handler.’ He’s a US Secret Service Agent.

The subject of the “theory” was a decorated U.S. Secret Service agent with Asian-American heritage.
Conspiracy theorists were quite active during U.S. President Joe Biden’s inauguration, trading spurious claims that senior Secret Service agent David Cho was a “Chinese handler.”
The racist, conspiratorial garbage about Biden’s "Chinese Handler" (aka David Cho the head of his secret service detail) is another example of the perpetual othering of Asian Americans. He literally is willing to take a bullet for the president,

‘Packed us together like sardines’: Guard deployed to Capitol struggles to contain Covid

Hundreds of Guard members who poured into Washington after the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol have tested positive for Covid-19 or are quarantining in nearby hotels

The National Guard has struggled to implement a plan to test troops flowing into and out of Washington, D.C., for Covid-19, with some Guard members being forced to find their own tests and others pressured to leave their quarantine early to report to duty.

Already, hundreds of Guard members who poured into Washington, D.C., after the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol have tested positive for Covid-19 or are quarantining in nearby hotels, three Guard sources said. Guard leadership has declined to release an official number of positive cases, but troops and lawmakers alike worry that the deployment is becoming a superspreader event.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday sued the Biden administration over what he described as an "unlawful and perilous" 100-day pause on deportations of illegal immigrants, claiming it would put Americans in danger and violated existing agreements. https://fxn.ws/3paOK4i

” "DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand," he said. "The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail“

 I'd load all of the felony cases on busses, convoy them to Washington and release them downtown.... and never say a word about it.

No fanfare, no drama, no leaks to the press, no interviews, no justification or defence of the action. It would just happen and happen quietly.

Any and all objections would be dismissed and the authors branded as racist xenophobes.... that's the state's only comment on the matter.

Push me on it and you would see a sanctuary state in reverse. Felons in the state illegally would be escorted to the state border and barred from re-entry. There would be serious jail time for any violations. Sanctuary status (as seen in California) allows the state to ignore federal immigration law... it can work both ways.

‘Dark Money’ Helped Pave Joe Biden’s Path to the White House


President Joe Biden benefited from a record-breaking amount of donations from anonymous donors to outside groups backing him, meaning the public will never have a full accounting of who helped him win the White House.

Biden’s winning campaign was backed by $145 million in so-called dark money donations, a type of fundraising Democrats have decried for years. Those fundraising streams augmented Biden’s $1.5 billion haul, in itself a record for a challenger to an incumbent president.

“Dark money is toxic to democracy – period”

Joe Biden’s far-left ‘unity’ will divide us:


“ As John Mitchell famously said about Richard Nixon’s White House, “Watch what we do, not what we say.”

Applying that standard to Biden, we should ignore the unity talk because everything he has done leans far left.


Again, he’s entitled — elections have consequences.

But knitting together a fractured America around a far-left agenda was never going to work. And Biden knows it.

In fact, his actions suggest the “Kumbaya” appeal is not directed at Trump voters or even the public in general. 

It’s really a disguised call to the factions in his own party to stick together, to give him a chance. I’ll keep you all happy, he’s saying, just watch. 

Biden kept Dems together during the campaign because everyone wanted to dump Trump.

Now that he’s won, he’s got to find other ways to keep the fault lines from widening. Early signs show he believes he can straddle the divide by staffing his administration with establishment veterans and party warhorses while giving the passionate far left early policy victories.

Their dogma lives loudly in the 25 or so executive orders the president signed as part of his promise to hit the ground running. He should have promised to walk. 

Consider that just hours after the new president moaned in his inaugural address that “Millions of jobs have been lost, hundreds of thousands of businesses closed,” he deliberately killed more jobs in the energy sector. 


One executive order revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, which snuffed out thousands of good-paying union jobs in Canada and the United States. The long-disputed project would have brought Canadian crude to Nebraska.

He halted new oil, gas and coal leases on public lands and water and rejoined the Paris climate accord, which is certain to be a massive jobs killer once he sets targets for reducing carbon emissions and enforces them with regulations. Naturally, the global climate elites cheered because, well, their jobs are secure.

Trump’s policies on the pipeline and fuel exploration, along with pulling America out of the climate pact, succeeded at creating jobs and achieving energy independence. By reversing those policies, Biden keeps his promise to do the opposite of Trump.

The effective campaign tactic is economically disastrous as a governing principle. It’s not even clear the politics will work for long in his own party if he keeps killing jobs before creating any.


History teaches that raising unemployment is a fast ticket to a short honeymoon.


There are other oddities as well. After months of trashing the Trump White House over its handling of the pandemic and the vaccine, Biden said Friday “there is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”

Lowering expectations is an old political trick, but his comment reflects a defeatist concession that can only deepen the nation’s funk.

Similarly, he said in his inaugural that America is both a great nation and systemically racist, which is hardly an uplifting message to a broad public. Then again, if you’re only appealing to wokesters and racial arsonists, the seeming incoherence makes sense. 

Despite high unemployment and the pandemic, Biden invited Central American caravans to come on in. With a moratorium on deportations of illegal crossers, he made it certain the border will be flooded, and that criminals and the COVID-infected will be among them. His press secretary described the policy as contributing to “racial equity.”

Biden also signed a radical order letting boys compete in girls’ sports events if they identify as transgender. The practice already is causing an uproar and now Biden has put the federal government on the side of glaring unfairness.


The conflicts and incoherence aside, the far left and media echo chambers swooned their approval of these and other measures, but that was predictable. The real test will come when Biden doesn’t have Trump to kick around anymore. 

If Dems and some Republicans have their way, that won’t be anytime soon

Good Luck Joe. All Leftist hot beds seeking sanity elsewhere....much like big biz fleeing to Texas...normal people are fleeing in droves.   Can only mean good news for the Republicans in 2022 runoffs 

” It’s a similar situation in the U.S., where U-Haul’s analytics found California, Illinois and New Jersey (i.e., L.A., Chicago and suburban New York) are bleeding residents while the hottest boomtowns are small places, particularly in Florida.“

Trump Left A Big Legal Mess For Biden

There are numerous lawsuits pending over Trump-era policies Biden doesn’t support, along with cases that ensnared the Justice Department with Trump’s own legal troubles.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden took office this week facing a crush of legal entanglements left by former president Donald Trump.

Every presidential transition involves decisions about how to unwind policies that the new administration doesn’t support, but the Trump era was unusual in just how many actions taken by the last administration — not to mention Trump’s personal legal messes — are still in court with the government’s lawyers in the mix. Less than a day after Biden was sworn in, judges in these cases began issuing orders asking the Justice Department to explain what happens next.

If only it was that simple and that innocuous.

For good or ill, the people fleeing had a hand in shaping the jurisdiction they now put in the rear view mirror. They wanted what they wanted until they got it, then, when the bill came due, they stuffed their mouthes with bacon and ran for the exits. They will take those values and proclivities with them to the next location and start the process all over again. 

The irony here is that I (for one) am willing to be governed by the outcome of elections and the wishes of the majority. If you are willing to pay for it, I'll pitch in and do my part. But if all ya got is taxing the 1%, well, you've been saying that since 54BC... might be time to move on. If you don't have a fully costed plan to pay for it you don't get it. If you aren't willing to pay for it, you either didn't want it or didn't want it bad enough. 

Such is life, we all make those determinations everyday. Isn't that why we give kids an allowance?

The truth be spoken...



Republicans are leaving Democrats with another mess to clean up

Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2021 | 2 a.m.

When President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in today, his administration will inherit a staggering set of problems.

An economy in ruins. A public health crisis that will claim more American lives in its first year than World War II did in four years of U.S. involvement. A GOP deranged by sustained lies about the election that metastasized into the worst attack on the U.S. Capitol in more than 200 years and threats of continued political violence from the right. Climate damage that poses a spiraling threat. A hollowed-out government and shredded social safety net. And much more.

But while Biden’s challenges are particularly steep, in one respect there’s nothing new about his presidency. For four decades, America has been locked in a cycle of Republicans breaking the country, voters electing Democrats to fix it, and then the GOP regaining power using the politics of fear and deception to convince Americans that the country is in a shambles when it’s actually on the mend. Then the GOP breaks America once more and the cycle resumes.

When President Bill Clinton was inaugurated in 1992, 10 million Americans were unemployed and the nation was facing record deficits. Poverty was on the rise, and job creation was at the slowest rate since the Great Depression. When Clinton left office, unemployment was at its lowest level in more than 30 years, the nation had its first budget surplus in decades and family income was up significantly.

Then George W. Bush was assigned the presidency by the Supreme Court. The budget surplus vanished as the Bush administration cut taxes (which heavily favored the ultrawealthy and supercharged income inequality among Americans) and poured trillions into the unnecessary war in Iraq (which fractured the Middle East). Bush and the Republicans then pushed America to the brink economically with their laissez-faire economic practices, setting the stage for the Great Recession by letting financial institutions run wild. The banks then promptly begged taxpayers for a bailout to their own excesses.

Enter Barack Obama, who came into office facing the threat of complete collapse of the financial system, unemployment at its highest level since the Great Depression, and the U.S. bogged down in overseas wars that had become intractable. Eight years later, Obama handed Donald Trump a thriving economy with three straight years of steady job growth — 8.1 million jobs, compared with 6.6 million during President Donald Trump’s first three years in office. Osama Bin Laden had been located and killed, and America’s Kurdish allies were helping contain extremist threats in the Middle East. The Trans Pacific Partnership provided a mechanism to stifle China’s economic growth and presented a soft-power means of restraining that nation’s human rights issues. And the Paris climate accords, which Obama signed America into, promised positive movement to curb global warming and further grow the world economy.

But with Trump’s escalator-ride candidacy announcement, progress became a scorched-earth path of destruction. Riding a lie that the economy is in a tailspin and fueling false fears of violent crime, Trump was elected and chaos ensued. And like his escalator, Trump took America straight down.

The Trump/GOP tax cuts pushed trillions into the hands of the wealthiest Americans at the cost of the middle class. Trump’s tough talk on China masked what in reality was a soft hand, as pulling out of the TPP allowed China to explode economically. Today it holds the majority of America’s debt and is throwing its weight around with abandon through its subjugation of Hong Kong and threats to Taiwan. European alliances that have contributed mightily to world peace since WWII are weakened or demolished, the U.S. betrayed the Kurds to Turkey, and the Taliban is preparing to return to power in Afghanistan.

Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris accords and his assault on Obama’s responsible climate regulations ensured a more toxic planet. His racist rhetoric, comfort to right-wing extremists, voter suppression and policies that disfavored minority communities left people of color feeling the return of the bleak Jim Crow days. He destroyed America’s human rights standards by caging children and breaking up families, to name one way.

With bumbling malice, Trump created a crisis a minute for years, then came his first external crisis — the COVID-19 pandemic. His monumental failure to address the pandemic led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions unemployed and catastrophic economic damage.

But Trump’s destruction continued unabated to the end, as he and the GOP fomented political violence on the national stage for the first time since the Civil War. His denouement saw him betraying his oath of office and leading an insurrection against Congress based on his false claim of election rigging.

In the country he leaves behind, we are sick and dying, our economy shattered, a portion of us so brainwashed by right-wing propaganda that we now face an enduring period of domestic terrorism. Trump exits with the world in a geopolitical vacuum, China triumphant after he let it go unleashed, Hong Kong’s democracy fallen, Taiwan under threat (and this could lead to war), the Middle East riven by ethnic and religious hostilities, famine and instability, Europe struggling, our allies uncertain of us, Britain alone, Russia chuckling, a planet mortally wounded, white supremacists openly on the prowl, and a percentage of the population believing outlandish conspiracy theories.

Trump and the GOP have again broken America, as Republicans always do: Democrats hand over a country on the upswing, and the Republicans tear it down with their smash-and-grab policies for the wealthy.

Yet with the change in administration comes a new opportunity to break the infuriating cycle of the past 40 years. Democrats, as they’ve done for decades, are rolling up their sleeves to yet again rebuild from the GOP-inflicted wounds.

By pulling together, Americans can fix the smoking ruin of yet another period of Republican rule and put the nation on a path to longer-term prosperity.

Nothing is forcing us to stay on our current tennis-match pattern of recovery and destruction; the choice to go another way lies entirely in our hands. Let’s simply remember which party fixes America and which party breaks it the next time we arrive at the polls.

 The American left's predilection for Soviet-style authoritarianism

By Patricia McCarthy

    The line proposed by the party leadership was clearly defined and utterly consistent. Its tactics were determined by the principle that the ends justify the means — all means without exception. In the spirit of this principle the prosecutor will demand your head, Citizen Rubashov. The arguments put forth will of course be different. But in the background of this fairground performance, as you call it, you will know just as well as the prosecutor what is at stake — the restoration of party unity.
The above quotation is from Arthur Koestler's 1941 novel, Darkness at Noon. It relates the grim tale of one of Stalin's operatives as he is sacrificed on the altar of "unity." Rubashov is charged with numerous crimes he did not commit, though he had come to have doubts about the revolution that became hopelessly
genocidal. He is forced to confess to these crimes he did not commit for the sake of party unity.
 Joe Biden cannot repeat this word "unity" often enough, so often it has already become meaningless. It is
meaningless coming from a man and a party who have increasingly moved in the direction of Stalin's regime. That is why they want to impeach Trump again. They fear him as the Soviets feared America's freedom and economic success even in the 1930s

Biden and his handlers are assuming that most Americans know nothing of world, let alone American history. Sadly, they are correct about too many Americans.

Those age fifty and under have long been indoctrinated by the leftism infused into our public-school education and universities for the last fifty years 

As the tenured radicals of the 1960s took over academia, the anti- Americanism became ever more virulent. Three books document the corruption of American education: The Closing of the American Mind by Allan Bloom
(1987), Tenured Radicals by Roger Kimball (1990), and Literature Lost, Social Agendas and the Corruption of the Humanities by John M. Ellis (1999).
Those who voted for Biden will soon regret their choice as they learn how much more for gasoline they will have to pay. They will have to pay much more in taxes on income and property. They will no longer enjoy the freedom of speech or assembly — we have lost those rights already to COVID restrictions.
It will become worse within days. Biden has weaponized COVID against the American people. Now that so many citizens complied so willingly to the lockdowns and mask mandates, they will ramp up their totalitarian
inclinations. COVID, whether a bioweapon or not, has been used to imprison Americans in their homes, destroy hundreds of thousands of small businesses while big box stores have been allowed to remain open, and frighten people to the point of mindless acquiescence.
The left and right are divided according to fear of COVID; the left are the mask tyrants, while conservatives tend to resist the dictatorial blue-state governors' and mayors' arbitrary decrees. There are no scientific data to support these absurd restrictions on our daily lives.

Having been in office for just two days, Biden has demonstrated his utter disrespect for our military. At least twenty-five thousand troops were brought to D.C. as props for an inauguration few people were interested in attending. There were no legitimate threats by "right-wing" groups.

The fences, the razor wire, the uniformed soldiers were all part of their political theatre meant to convince the American people that Biden was in danger, that it is Trump-supporters who are violent. Everyone knows that is not true; it is the left — Antifa and BLM — who are violent and destructive. But Biden pretended to be scared. He even hired his own private security company to protect him from the troops!

Biden is telegraphing in every way the knowledge that he did not win the election; he knows he is there illegitimately. Once the show was over, he evicted the troops from the Capitol to a parking structure (which is forbidden for prisoners of war by the Geneva Conventions); no beds, no heat, no bathrooms. This is how he shows his gratitude for their part in the charade.
The left has always hated and resented the military; now leftists may actually fear them. But on his second day in office, Biden sent troops to Syria! It seems that getting the war machine up and running again is priority number one. As for those men and women who serve? Units of labor, a useful species. How else can sending them to sleep on cold concrete be explained? It can't.
Back to Koestler's 1941 novel about the horrific excesses of Stalin's crimes against his own people — unity was the word then, too. Appearances were everything, and the party had to present a united face even if it meant killing their own, even if they were innocent. That is what Stalin's show trials were all about. That is exactly what the snap impeachment of President Trump was all about and what the impeachment trial in the Senate will be about. They need to destroy the man completely just as Stalin destroyed his ideological opponents. Their mistake is thinking the millions of Trump-supporters will buy into their "unity" scam. Stalin did not have an opponent with an army of champions as Trump does. Those pro- America-as-founded enthusiasts will not be fooled by Biden's phony pleas for unity.
Here is the dictionary definition of unity: the state of being united or joined as a whole: European unity | their leaders called for unity between opposing factions. There is no way on Earth conservative, America-loving patriots are ever going to align themselves with the regressive, American-hating left that has shredded the Constitution and aims to put in place a veritable police state. If they think they can coax conservatives into unity with a movement that is frighteningly similar to Stalin's and Mao's, they are crazier than we knew.

Unity to the left is a code word for submission.

How soon some have forgotten...


The Victory of ‘No’

The GOP’s unprecedented anti-Obama obstructionism was a remarkable success. And then it handed the party to Donald Trump.

On January 29, 2009, the whittled-down and beaten-up Republican minority in the House of Representatives gathered for a strange celebration of defeat.

The Democrats had just drubbed them at the polls, seizing the White House and a 79-seat advantage in the House. The House had then capped President Barack Obama’s first week in office by passing his $800 billion Recovery Act, a landmark emergency stimulus bill that doubled as a massive down payment on Obama’s agenda. Even though the economy was in free fall, not one House Republican had voted for the effort to revive it, prompting a wave of punditry about a failed party refusing to help clean up its own mess and dooming itself to irrelevance.

The Senate's impeachment trial is illegal and a sham



Democrats claim to want to unify the country, but impeaching a former president, a private citizen, is the antithesis of unity. This impeachment is nothing more than a partisan exercise designed to divide the country further.


They have brazenly appointed an openly pro-impeachment Democrat to preside over the trial. This is not fair or impartial, and it hardly encourages any kind of unity for the country. 

If we are about to try to impeach a president, then where is the chief justice? If the accused is no longer president, then where is the constitutional power to impeach him?

Private citizens don’t get impeached. Impeachment is for removal from office, and the accused here has already left office. 

Hyperpartisan Democrats are about to drag our great country down into the gutter of rancor and vitriol, the likes of which have never been seen in our nation’s history. Instead of doing the nation’s work with their new control of the House, Senate, and executive branch, Democrats are wasting the people’s time on a partisan vendetta against a man no longer in office. It’s almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump. Without him as their boogeyman, they might have to legislate, and actually convince the public that their policy prescriptions are the right ones.

Democrats are about to do something no self-respecting senator has ever stooped to. They are insisting the election is actually not over, and so they insist on regurgitating its bitterness. In the past, calmer heads have typically prevailed in our history and allowed public opinion to cast blame where blame is deserved. 

This sham of an impeachment will ostensibly ask whether Trump incited the reprehensible violence of Jan. 6., when he said, “I know everyone here will soon march to the Capitol to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Peacefully and patriotically. Those are hardly words of violence. 


But what of Democrats' words, what of Democrats' incitement to violence? No Democrat will honestly ask whether Bernie Sanders incited the shooter who nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise and a volunteer coach of the congressional Republican baseball squad. The shooter nearly pulled off a massacre, all because he fervently believed the false and inflammatory rhetoric spewed by Sanders and other Democrats — lines such as “The Republican healthcare plan for the uninsured is that you die.” As this avowed Bernie supporter shot at us, he screamed, “This is for healthcare!”

No Democrat will ask whether Sen. Cory Booker incited violence when he called for his supporters to get “up in the face” of congresspeople, a very visual and specific incitement.

No Democrat will ask whether Maxine Waters incited violence when she literally told her supporters, and I quote, “If you see a member of the Trump Cabinet at a restaurant, a department store, a gas station, or any place, you create a crowd and you push back on them.” My wife and I were pushed and surrounded by the type of mob Waters likes to inspire. It’s terrifying to have a swarm of people threaten to kill you, curse at you, and hold you literally hostage until police come to your rescue. No Democrat has ever considered impeaching Waters for her violent rhetoric. 

Republicans, to their credit, have never once thought it legitimate to formally censure or impeach these Democrats for the words they said or the violent ways in which their supporters reacted. No Republican has sought to use government to hold these Democrats responsible for the antifa and Black Lives Matter violence that consumed our cities last summer, resulting in over $1 billion in destruction, looting, and property damage. Many on the Democratic side of the aisle cheered them on. Vice President Kamala Harris famously helped to raise money for the bail for those arrested for violent offenses. I wonder if she will be brought up on charges of inciting violence for that now that she is the vice president? Should she be impeached?


Should Republicans impeach the Democratic mayor of Seattle, who incited and condoned violence by calling the armed takeover of part of the city “a summer of love”?

On June 8, the New York Post, citing U.S. Justice Department statistics, reported that more than 700 law enforcement officers had been injured during the antifa/Black Lives Matter riots. There were at least 19 murders, including that of 77-year old retired police officer David Dorn.

Yet Democrats insist on applying a test of incitement to a Republican that they refuse to apply to themselves. Shame on these angry, unhinged partisans, deranged by their hatred of the former president. Shame on those who seek blame and revenge, and who choose to pervert a constitutional process while doing so. 

I want to put the Senate on the record. I will insist on holding a vote that makes every last senator vote on whether they believe this proceeding, the impeachment trial of a private citizen, is unconstitutional, illegal, and essentially a bill of attainder; on whether there is any fairness or due process in having a partisan Democrat already on record as favoring impeachment presiding over this trial; and on whether this is how our politics should be.

This trial is a sham, a travesty, and a dark blot on the history of our country.

I urge my colleagues to reconsider this kangaroo court and move forward to debate the great issues of our day. 

Dr. Rand Paul, a Republican, is Kentucky's junior U.S. senator.

UPDATE  Democrats fail to get 17 Republicans to vote to convict a former President

In Paul’s view, the votes of 45 Republicans against holding a trial proved his point – and likely rendered any upcoming trial to be moot

"If you voted that it was unconstitutional, how in the world would you ever vote to convict somebody for this?" Paul told reporters after the vote, according to Politico. "This vote indicates it’s over. The trial is all over."
