Joe Biden Must Abdicate Candidacy Now

Friday, October 16th, 2020

Is a Compromised Candidate Acceptable?

The evidence coming out of the emails and other information from the Hunter Biden computer and hard-drive contents disclosed by the NYPost and former Mayor Rudy Guliani require immediate action.  There is sufficient information present to suggest that Joe Biden is mortally compromised, and cannot be permitted to be President of the United States.  This information, which has every appearance of being authentic, the content of which has not yet been denied by the Biden campaign, is pure blackmail material.  If Joe Biden is elected President, there is a high probability that the Chinese and other malevolent actors, in possession of this and more information, would use it to undermine the United States government, its defenses, its security, and indeed, the safety of the American people.  Joe Biden must not be permitted to be President, and the Democrat Party, slavishly committed to this course, must turn this around immediately.  A president so thoroughly compromised is a walking danger to every American, and for the good of the country, this charade by which the media pretends this is all quite fine must be put to an end. For the safety of the nation, Biden must abdicate his candidacy now.

One of the people who has done the best job of expressing the appropriate level of outrage and disbelief at the utter irresponsibility of all the players who are helping Biden to conceal all of this has been former US Secret Service agent, former NYPD cop, and pod-caster extraordinaire, Dan Bongino. Bongino understands the gravity of these disclosures, and he understands that what is at stake here is more than just typical political disputes.  This is an issue of the utmost import to our national security, fundamentally holding our nation’s future in the balance. A president is entrusted with the power to command our forces and make war, or to withhold our forces when better judgment might deploy them. A nuclear-armed hostile like China in possession of potential blackmail information over a President of the United States and members of his family is an unconscionable risk we must not take. In the segment below, courtesy of Rumble.com, Bongino explains the threat along with the utterly vapid, irresponsible stance of the mainstream media in covering this up and even making light of it:

Biden must never be put in a position to compromise the United States of America. He should step aside immediately, but failing that, his party must remove him. If they will not act, and if he’s already in so deep that this train has left the station, and there is no other alternative, we must make sure that every friend, neighbor, relative, or stranger on the street is aware that Joe Biden is not merely a shameless profiteer who traded on his office as the Vice President, but that he may well directly sell out our country as a would-be President of the United States.  There can be no excuse for any rational person to vote for this man, or any ticket on which he appears, or even a party that would knowingly place him in nomination. There is growing evidence that this conduct has been known around Washington DC for years, and that Biden may not have been the only person similarly situated, so we can expect much of official Washington DC to remain mute on the question.  He must never be entrusted with the “nuclear football” or more broadly, the security of the American people. It’s an awesome responsibility his conduct to date demonstrates he is incapable of carrying.

This is more than some mere low-grade DC scandal.  This goes to the very security of our nation.  If the Big-Tech giants are too deeply invested both in he and in China to let this story through, we must carry it, but we have less than three weeks to do it. People are voting in many states already. Time is of the essence. This must be stopped, and if that means Harris moves to the top of the ticket, so be it. She too should be defeated, but Biden must be taken out of contention for the presidency. His conflicts, in addition to suggesting substantial legal and criminal liability, make him a clear and present danger to our national security. No rational American should be willing to see his candidacy continue, much less his election.

 

Editor’s Note: In a followup to yesterday’s post, Guliani explained that on the morning of the original story breaking, a Biden attorney called the computer repair shop to ask for the harddrive back. That almost certainly eliminates any questions as to the authenticity of the data. You can see that in this video at the 14:30 mark:

Paul Ryan Sabotaged Nunes’ Deep State Investigation

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Swamp Rat Number One

Long-time readers will be aware that I’ve never thought much of former Speaker Paul Ryan(R-WI,) and that I’ve long thought he was just a Washington DC insider getting wealthy on his connections and position.  Now comes news that confirms what I thought all along: Paul Ryan actually punished Devin Nunes(R-CA) for tipping-off President Trump about the deep-state spying on the Trump campaign that occurred in the last year of the Obama administration.  No wonder then that Paul Ryan retired as Speaker of the House.  If the abuses of the FISC and the FISA process is ever fully disclosed, people like Ryan are going to be caught up in it all.  Ryan and his ilk are the swamp.  It’s no secret that Ryan didn’t want Trump elected, and did everything he could do undermine him.  Sure, he made some campaign appearances apparently on Trump’s behalf, but let’s be blunt: It was all about keeping up appearances.  The real truth came out when it was disclosed by Cleta Mitchell on Lou Dobbs’ show that Ryan punished(!) Nunes by putting him before the ethics committee, and that action stalled Nunes’ investigation for a year:

Do you understand what this really was? Paul Ryan, using his power as Speaker of the House, tied up Devin Nunes in a phony ethics committee investigation because he went to the President to warn him about the plot against him.  While Nunes was out of the picture, the investigation was being stalled and obfuscated.  Only once the ethics committee dispensed with the nonsensical ethics review was Nunes restored as chairman, and by then, he was going to be in a race to get things revealed to the public before the midterms of 2018.

This is sick.  Paul Ryan helped the DC Uni-Party get away with their crimes, if ultimately, they manage to do so.  I like Dan Bongino’s term for insider, DC Republicans: “Swamp Rats.”  Paul Ryan is all of that and more.  I wonder how many other swamp rats are among the Republicans who “retired” in 2018. They’ve been helping Obama’s people avoid justice because they’re owed justice too.  President Trump had better focus some of his energies on cleaning up the DC swamp before it swallows him whole.

Sarah Palin Is Right: We Shouldn’t Surrender “Blue” States

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Every Reason to Fight

At the Ted Cruz rally at The Woodlands on Friday, Governor Palin made mention of a candidate who hasn’t been getting  a great deal of national attention, but who deserves the support of conservatives and Tea Party folk everywhere.  One of the things her remarks made clear is that too often, we surrender supposed “blue” states on the basis that we should not waste our precious resources campaigning in places that have been written-off as simply too far gone.  Governor Palin is right about this, and going back even to 2008, when she wanted to spend some time in Michigan, but the McCain Campaign had decided it was not worth the effort, Governor Palin has never been one to cede anything to the left, leaving them a victory by default. In fact, this is what has made her so precious to many on our side, because it is this unrelenting fighting spirit that we have often lacked.  It’s been the habit of the GOP establishment to write-off such places, but she’s right:  We must fight for every one.  In her speech on Friday, she mentioned a candidate for Senate in the State of Maryland, a deep, deep blue state in which mathematically, no victory should ever be possible for a Republican, never mind a conservative, but maybe that’s our problem.  Perhaps we abandon the men and women like Dan  Bongino too easily, and maybe that’s why we seem to be perpetually on the defensive.

We fight over our “Red” states, and some “battleground” states, and we walk away from “blue” states because it just seems so impossible, but we must ask at some point: Is it?  Is it really impossible to deliver a message of freedom and liberty and the vast potential that is the America we love to all her people?  More, aren’t we committing a grave moral error when we abandon the people of those states as veritable Don Quixotes, damned forever to tilt at the windmills of a hopeless political imbalance in their states?  Yes, I am fortunate enough to live in a “red” state, but then again, I am actually a transplant from a “blue” state via a “battleground” state and my service in the Army.  The reason I decided together with my wife to remain in Texas two decades ago is because I looked at the increasingly hopeless prospects of the states in which I had spent my youth, and decided there could be no way I would willingly damn my young family by dragging us back there.

The problem is what Mark Levin likes to point out, likening the left to a swarm of locusts: Once they strip a place and make of it an economically barren and politically devastated wasteland, they move on to more promising areas, turning them each in their turn to the sort of disaster they had created on their previous stops.  I often meet folk who have come to Texas from other places around the country, and some of them ask me how I have adapted to Texas.  My response is always the same: “Don’t try to make Texas into the same sort of place you had left behind, but instead make yourself into a Texan.”  Many of them are taken aback at the notion, and they ask me what I mean, and I explain to them that so many come here from deep blue or battleground states, arriving here to set about the business of turning Texas into what they fled, never stopping to consider the insanity of the notion.  Why would one try to recreate here the very things one has so recently escaped?

Another problem we face is that in leaving these “blue” states to the left, not only are we abandoning some of our most stubborn brethren, who refuse to be run-off from their homes, and who fight tooth and nail for every inch of political ground, but we are also rejecting our own thesis with respect to warfare, whether real or political.  You see, one of the things we conservatives have acknowledged vis-à-vis the war on terror is that for the sake of our country’s safety, it is far better to fight the thugs and terrorists and tyrannical despots on their ground, rather than waiting for them to arrive here, on ours, because naturally, given the time, they will attack us at home. By our failure to contest ‘blue’ states, they needn’t spend any time or effort defending their own ground, because we don’t press our attack there any longer, leaving them free to go on the offensive in every red precinct in the country.

As I have explained before, our political strife in this country is a war, in fact, restrained for the moment to the sphere of politics, but the strategies employed are no different.  Governor Palin mocked Barack Obama for suggesting that Texas would be a blue state, and for the time being, that’s true, but as her words also warned, the only thing preventing that from coming true over the longer run is us.  If we permit the GOP establishment and all the Austin cronies to turn Texas to their purposes, and if we don’t begin to fight the radical left, not only in Texas, but in places like Maryland too, we are going to slowly lose.

It is stunning to think that only a generation ago, California voted for Ronald Reagan, the most conservative president of my lifetime, and perhaps the lifetimes of most Americans still living.  Conservatives don’t seem able to win in California any longer, and it is the locust-like nature of the left, combined with our own unwillingness to battle them that explains the problem.  We ceded that ground, as we have ceded New York, Illinois, Michigan, Maryland, Massachusetts and a number of others.  We’ve simply walked away.  We’ve effectively said “tough luck, we’re saving our own skins” to our conservative brethren in those states, leaving them to grasp at the last straws of their political and economic freedoms, yet we wonder why we see the left infiltrating those places that had been our great strongholds.  There had been a time not so long ago when places like Virginia or North Carolina would never have been in question.  Now?

Ladies and gentlemen, as I write this post, I am re-watching at the video of Dan Bongino, linked by Governor Palin on her Facebook page, and I want you to see this too. Here is the video, and at its end, he makes the same point:

Here is a man who is fighting like Hell for the last bit of logic and the last bit of sanity remaining in his state, and when you hear his passion, and when you see the fire in his belly, I want to ask all of you, my conservative brethren, most of us ensconced in deep red territory, how is it that we walk away from fighters like this man, abandoning them to a hopeless battle in which we had surrendered the flanks:  Is he not championing precisely the things in which we believe?   Like many of my readers, and like Gov. Palin, I’m not much inclined to give anything to the left, and I’m certainly not of a mind to leave such a man standing alone, speaking the truth in a state in which, without our help, he will never be heard over the din of the locusts.  It’s time we do something about that, and being conservatives, our country and our culture under attack on all fronts, there is no time like the present.  We shouldn’t wait for somebody else to rescue us, because if we don’t do it, none will.  If you’re in Maryland, go help get this guy elected, and if you’re not in Maryland, contribute to that effort any way you can.  Start here.  Then, let’s fight the left everywhere.  All we’re doing at present is “holding onto our positions,” but we’re not advancing the war by pressing our assault on their leviathan.  It’s time to change the formula.  It’s time to make the case.  It’s time for us to reinforce our flanks, but surge and break through at the front.  This is total war, waged for now in words and votes, but if we fail to engage on all fronts, we will lose the country.
