A woman who attended a town hall event in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Thursday with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared to suggest when it was her time to speak that she was told to stick to what was written on a piece of paper.

“My name in Porsche Bennett,” the woman said. “I’m just going to be honest, Mr. Biden, I was told to go off this paper, but I can’t. You need the truth and I’m part of the truth.”

WATCH:

“I was born here, raised here, first eighth-grade class at the school that was named after his mother,” the woman continued. “So, I have to give you the truth of the people. And the truth of the matter is, we are heavily angry. Not angry as to where people say, ‘Oh, they’re protesting,’ there’s a difference between a protester and a rioter. A very big difference.”

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer responded to the news clip of the woman saying that she was supposed to read off the piece of paper by writing on Twitter: “The press would be in a feeding frenzy if the Bush staff handed ‘real’ people the questions to ask Bush at townhall style event. Let’s see how acquiescent the Biden press corps is – or can they still be tough on the person they cover?”

“I was born here, raised here, first eighth-grade class at the school that was named after his mother,” the woman continued. “So, I have to give you the truth of the people. And the truth of the matter is, we are heavily angry. Not angry as to where people say, ‘Oh, they’re protesting,’ there’s a difference between a protester and a rioter. A very big difference.”

Washington Post blogger Jonathan Capehart spoke to the woman sometime after the event ended and asked her about the piece of paper that she had. She reportedly claimed that she was given the piece of paper by Black Lives Activists Kenosha (BLAK).

The woman’s remarks came at an event that Biden attended for Jacob Blake, a black man who was shot after he allegedly resisted law enforcement officials who were attempting to arrest him, and tried to enter a vehicle.

“During the investigation following the initial incident, Mr. Blake admitted that he had a knife in his possession,” the Wisconsin Department of Justice said in a statement. “DCI agents recovered a knife from the driver’s side floorboard of Mr. Blake’s vehicle. A search of the vehicle located no additional weapons.”

The Kenosha Professional Police Association (KPPA) slammed the media’s narrative on the incident, calling it “wholly inaccurate.”

“The recent officer-involved shooting in Kenosha has produced a variety of feelings and narratives; most of which are wholly inaccurate,” the statement begins. “The purely fictional depiction of events coming from those without direct knowledge of what actually occurred is incredibly harmful, and provides no benefit to anyone whatsoever, other than to perpetuate a misleading narrative.”

KPPA’s statement added the following points in their statement:

  • The officers were dispatched to the location due to a complaint that Mr. Blake was attempting to steal the caller’s keys/vehicle.
  • Officers were aware of Mr. Blake’s open warrant for felony sexual assault (3rd degree) before they arrived on scene.
  • Mr. Blake was not breaking up a fight between two females when officers arrived on scene.
  • The silver SUV seen in the widely circulated video was not Mr. Blake’s vehicle.
  • Mr. Blake was not unarmed. He was armed with a knife. The officers did not see the knife initially. The officers first saw him holding the knife while they were on the passenger side of the vehicle. The “main” video circulating on the internet shows Mr. Blake with the knife in his left hand when he rounds the front of the car. The officers issued repeated commands for Mr. Blake to drop the knife. He did not comply.
  • The officers initially tried to speak with Mr. Blake, but he was uncooperative.
  • The officers then began issuing verbal commands to Mr. Blake, but he was non-complaint.
  • The officers next went “hands-on” with Mr. Blake, so as to gain compliance and control.
  • Mr. Blake actively resisted the officers’ attempt to gain compliance.
  • The officers then disengaged and drew their tasers, issuing commands to Mr. Blake that he would be tased if he did not comply.
    Based on his non-compliance, one officer tased Mr. Blake. The taser did not incapacitate Mr. Blake.
  • The officers once more went “hands-on” with Mr. Blake; again, trying to gain control of the escalating situation.
  • Mr. Blake forcefully fought with the officers, including putting one of the officers in a headlock.
  • A second taser (from a different officer than had deployed the initial taser) was then deployed on Mr. Blake. It did not appear to have any impact on him.
  • Based on the inability to gain compliance and control after using verbal, physical and lesslethal means, the officers drew their firearms.
  • Mr. Blake continued to ignore the officers’ commands, even with the threat of lethal force now present.

This story has been updated to include additional reporting from Washington Post blogger Jonathan Capehart.

Source: Daily Wire: Woman At Biden Town Hall: ‘I Was Told To Go Off This Paper But I Can’t. You Need The Truth.’

Republican congressional candidate Kim Klacik, who is running in Maryland’s 7th district, slammed the Democratic Party on Monday night during the first night of the Republican National Convention.

“I’m the first Black female Republican candidate running for a Maryland Congressional seat, ever,” Klacik said. “The Democrats have controlled my city, Charm City, for over 50 years and they have run this beautiful place into the ground. Abandoned buildings, liquor stores on every corner, drug addicts and guns on the street — that is now the norm in many neighborhoods.”

“You’d think Maryland taxpayers would be getting a whole lot since our taxes are out of control; instead, we are paying for decades of incompetence and corruption,” Klacik continued. “Sadly, this same cycle of decay exists in many of America’s Democrat-run cities. And yet, the Democrats still assume that Black people will vote for them, no matter how much they let us down and take us for granted.”

“Nope! We’re sick of it and not going to take it anymore,” Klacik continued. “The days of blindly supporting the Democrats are coming to an end. In Baltimore, we have the highest number of Black Republicans in the entire country running for office this election cycle.”

Klacik hit Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over comments that he made this year when he told a black host that he wasn’t black if the host didn’t know who he was going to vote for.

“Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves — that the color of someone’s skin dictates their political views. We’re not buying the lies anymore — you and your party have ignored us for too long,” Klacik continued. “We want safety in our neighborhoods. We want jobs and innovation, like tapping the potential of the Port of Baltimore to create manufacturing jobs for Americans. We want lower taxes. We want school choice. We want a chance to get ahead, not just get by! That’s what President Trump promised. And that’s what Trump delivered!”

TRANSCRIPT OF PREPARED REMARKS:

My name is Kim Klacik, and I’m running for Congress in Maryland’s 7th district.

I’m the first Black female Republican candidate running for a Maryland Congressional seat, ever.

The Democrats have controlled my city, Charm City, for over 50 years and they have run this beautiful place into the ground.

Abandoned buildings, liquor stores on every corner, drug addicts and guns on the street — that is now the norm in many neighborhoods.

You’d think Maryland taxpayers would be getting a whole lot since our taxes are out of control; instead, we are paying for decades of incompetence and corruption.

Sadly, this same cycle of decay exists in many of America’s Democrat-run cities.

And yet, the Democrats still assume that Black people will vote for them, no matter how much they let us down and take us for granted.

Nope! We’re sick of it and not going to take it anymore. The days of blindly supporting the Democrats are coming to an end.

In Baltimore, we have the highest number of Black Republicans in the entire country running for office this election cycle.

Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves — that the color of someone’s skin dictates their political views. We’re not buying the lies anymore — you and your party have ignored us for too long.

We want safety in our neighborhoods. We want jobs and innovation, like tapping the potential of the Port of Baltimore to create manufacturing jobs for Americans. We want lower taxes. We want school choice. We want a chance to get ahead, not just get by! That’s what President Trump promised. And that’s what Trump delivered!

I want Baltimore to be an example to Republicans around the country that we can compete in our inner cities if we reach out to the citizens and deliver real results.

President Trump is bringing this country back roaring. And he’s bringing the American Spirit to life — for all Americans.

So, I’m asking you to help President Trump complete the Great American Comeback, and I’m asking you to help me make Baltimore great again.

Because even though it’s going to make Democrat politicians furious to hear this from this un-bossed Woman, I’m just going to say it like it is: Donald Trump is hands-down the best president of my lifetime.

Thank you and God bless!

Violent rioters dressed in black and carrying an assortment of blunt weapons attacked numerous businesses and started fires in Denver on Saturday night, causing an extensive amount of damage.

The Denver Channel reported:

Sometime before 9 p.m., a van arrived to provide some of the people with shields. As the people marched toward the Denver police headquarters, Denver7 reporters witnessed people with a bat and an ax.

The group expressed various motives: defunding or abolishing the police, ending homeless sweeps, stopping racism, justice for Elijah McClain and more, including several who said they were there for vandalism and were done with peaceful protesting, according to crews at the scene.

“A tree is on fire outside the courthouse. People are throwing rocks at a Sheriff’s Office van. Important to note, nearly all of the protesters have shields or helmets,” 9 News reporter Marc Sallinger tweeted. “Most are dressed in all black.”

Sallinger tweeted out a video of one of the businesses that the extremists attacked: a locally-owned Quiznos restaurant. Sallinger said that the rioters were “breaking every window they see.”

WATCH:

Sallinger later returned to the scene of the attack and noted that the owners of the restaurant had arrived to clean up the damage caused by the rioters.

“The owners of the Quiznos arrived to clean up,” Sallinger wrote. “The restaurant is owned by a family. The whole family is out here cleaning up the damage now. They’ve owned it for 12 years, never seen anything like this. ‘I don’t even know where to start,’ he told me.”

WATCH:

9 News noted that far-left Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca had recently “submitted a proposal to replace DPD with an unarmed ‘peace force.’”

“Most officers in the Peacekeeping service will not have arrest powers or be licensed to bear or use arms as part of their duties,” the extreme measure proposed before ultimately getting shot down.

CdeBaca, a Democrat who has openly advocated for communism, cheered on a tweet earlier this year that advocated for infecting supporters of President Donald Trump with COVID-19.

According to The Denver Channel, CdeBaca appeared to have a run-in with the Denver Police Department last week:

It started as a call to clear a Denver encampment and enforce the city’s Unauthorized Camping ordinance. It’s turned into a full-blown controversy between a sitting Denver City Council member and the President of Denver’s Police Union.

Video obtained by Denver7 Investigates shows a street fight between a group of people and Denver Police officers. You can see officers using billy clubs and members of the group antagonizing officers during an eight-minute portion of the conflict.

It took place in the area of 29th Street and Glenarm street in Denver. The video was posted on Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca’s personal Facebook page. It shows what appears to be CdeBaca walking up to the conflict. The video shows rising tensions between the group and police officers and you can hear and see a second wave of officers arriving to try and take control of the situation.

Ranking sources inside the Denver Police Department confirmed for Denver7 that they believe organized anarchists sparked the conflict that was then captured on camera and posted on the Coucilwoman’s Facebook page.

“The most important thing I took away from this,” said Union President Nick Rogers, “is that a sitting representative, an elected official from the city and county of Denver, that the citizens elected was leading the charge to continue the chaos and destruction of our city.”

“We’re not gonna quit, we’re not gonna give up,” Rogers continued. “We’re not gonna let Candi CdeBaca make us quit. We’re not gonna let her win because we do what is right.”

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, when confronted on Wednesday about remarks she made during the initial days of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, reminded the media that numerous media organizations downplayed the outbreak during the early days of its spread.

Reuters reporter Jeff Mason asked McEnany, “In a previous life, before you were press secretary, you worked for the campaign and you made a comment, I believe on Fox, in which you said President Trump will not allow the coronavirus to come to this country. Given what has happened since then, obviously, would you like to take that back?”

“I guess I would turn the question back on the media and ask similar questions,” McEnany responded. “Does Vox want to take back that they proclaimed that the coronavirus would not be a deadly pandemic? Does The Washington Post want to take back that they told Americans to get a grip, the flu is bigger than the coronavirus? Does The Washington Post likewise want to take back that our brains are causing us to exaggerate the threat of the coronavirus? Does The New York Times want to take back that fear of the virus maybe spreading faster of than the virus itself? Does NPR want to take back that the flu was a much bigger threat than the coronavirus? And finally once again The Washington Post, would they like to take back that the government should not respond aggressively to the coronavirus?”

“I’ll leave you with those questions and maybe you’ll have some answers in a few days,” McEnany concluded. “Thank you very much.”

Source: Daily Wire: Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Reminds Media How They Downplayed Coronavirus Outbreak

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made a series of confusing and contradictory remarks on Sunday during an interview on ABC News about the coronavirus outbreak.

Appearing on ABC News’ “This Week,” Biden attacked President Trump after Biden reversed course last week and said that he agreed with Trump’s travel restrictions on China after initially appearing to suggest that Trump was xenophobic for banning travel from China.

“He indicated that I complimented him on – on dealing with China,” Biden said. “Well, you know, 45 nations had already moved to keep – block China’s personnel from being able to come to the United States before the president moved.”

Biden’s statement is completely false. 45 other nations did not “block China’s personnel from being able to come to the United States before the president moved.”

Later in the interview, Biden reversed course and claimed that shutting down borders was not an effective way of preventing the spread of the disease.

“You know, these viruses as you know, George, they have no borders, you can’t build a wall, you can’t put up – you can’t have, you know, people at the border trying to stop it, it’s beyond that capacity,” Biden said. “You have to know what’s coming, where it’s coming from, and how to deal with.”

Biden made the remark while adding that Trump should “listen to the experts” and “listen to the Faucis of the world.”

However, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that Trump’s decision to shut off travel from China “saved us really a lot of hurt.”

TRANSCRIPT:

STEPHANOPOULOS: And former Vice President Joe Biden joins us right now.

Good morning, Mr. Vice President. Thank you for joining us.

JOE BIDEN: Oh, thank you for having me on your show. I appreciate it.

And I wish you well.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Sure thing.

We just heard President Trump there talking about you at his press conference yesterday. But his team also said — he also said this week that he would be open to taking a phone call from you. Has that phone call happened? And, if it does, what’s the most important thing you want to tell him to do right now?

BIDEN: Well, it hasn’t happened. I’m happy to talk to him.

And I would just tell them what we found is important to do when we went through, not as bad, but a similar crisis. And that is to — you have to move swiftly. And we have to move more rapidly. You have to implement the Defense Production Act, empower a supply commander, create a Defense Production Act for banks that get out small business loans, ramp up testing, a whole range of things.

You got to go faster than slower. And we started off awfully slow.

He indicated that I complimented him on — on dealing with China. Well, you know, 45 nations had already moved to keep — block China’s personnel from being able to come to the United States before the president moved.

So, it’s just — it’s about pace. It’s about — it’s about the urgency. And I don’t think there’s been enough of it, urgency.

STEPHANOPOULOS: The president has said many times now he’s worried that the cure is going to be worse than the disease.

Does that — does that concern you at all? And isn’t there a point there that, if this lockdown goes on for too long, the public health concerns could be — could be grave?

BIDEN: Well, the public health concerns can be grave.

And you saw what’s happening in Singapore. They moved very rapidly to bring down the coronavirus down to zero, and then they began to open up. They had very, very tight restrictions in terms of social distancing, et cetera, staying in place.

Now it’s coming back. And so, you know, we have got to — what we need most of all, and it’s not the president’s fault at all, but we need most of all a vaccine. But in the meantime, we have to take all the efforts we can to make sure we prevent the spread, lower that curve as they talk about, and move from there.

And that’s why I think, George, we’re going to need not only the last — CARES Act that the congress passed, which did a great deal, we’re going to need at least two more iterations of that I believe to help the economy.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And what we’ve seen also these new guidelines from the CDC saying that they believe the public now should wear masks in public. President Trump said he doesn’t want to do it. He’s not going to do it, but several other leading politicians are. When you go in public going forward, will you be wearing a mask?

BIDEN: Yes. Look, I think it’s important to follow the science, listen to the experts, do what they tell you. It’s, you know, you may not look — he may not like how he looks in a mask, but the truth of the matter is that follow the science, that’s what they’re telling us.

So, if I go out in public, and I have not gone to commercial places of late. I haven’t gone to my local church, et cetera, there are no services actually, but my generic point is that you should follow the science.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And your campaign videos have been quite tough on the president. You say his failures, his incompetence are going to cost lives. Is that what’s happening now?

BIDEN: Well, look, what I have been saying is that he’s moving too slow. The virus is not his fault, but the response is his responsibility.

Look, there are a few things he can do — he can immediately and fully implement the Defense Production Act, which I and many others called for a long time ago. And he’s just getting underway with it. There’s still no Defense supply act — Production Act for gloves, masks, all the things first responders need.

We should create a bank Defense Production Act. We have got to get those small business loans out. You saw what American Express did — I mean, excuse me, Bank of America did. They came out and said unless you already have loans with us, unless you already have worked with us, unless you have a credit card with us we’re not going to — even though they’re government-guaranteed loans, we’re not going to process those loans.

We have got to save jobs. We’ve got to save people’s businesses. And they have to exponentially ramp up testing. We have been talking about 4 million tests are going to be available. Look where is all this — where is it? What’s being done?

You’ve got to open up enrollment for Obamacare. A lot of people don’t have insurance. This president is trying to take away Obamacare across the board, which will leave people naked to this problem that we’re facing. And we have to finally get some data how this Coronavirus is really hurting African-Americans and minority communities.

These are things that should be done now, but you need a supply commander in charge of it all. And right out of the White House, right out — in direct response to the president so we know where to get what we have to get and get it quickly.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Back in 2014, President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security warned that a devastating pandemic was the highest homeland security risk from a natural cause. Should your administration have done more to prepare?

BIDEN: Well, we did a lot to prepare. As you know, George, we set up an office within — a pandemic office within the White House. We expanded CDC in other countries, so we could be, in fact, observe, see when things were coming, how things were moving. We put people in China. I mean, we did a whole lot of things and they got a very detailed breakdown on this by a briefing, the Trump administration, when we transitioned out of office.

But the president dismantled almost all of that. And he drastically cut the budgets for the CDC. He drastically cut the budget for the — anyway, so he didn’t follow through on any of what we suggested was a real problem.

Now, it’s going to continue to be a problem. We’ve got to learn lessons from this. We can do much better than being done now. And we can eventually get to the place where we can — you know, these viruses as you know, George, they have no borders, you can’t build a wall, you can’t put up — you can’t have, you know, people at the border trying to stop it, it’s beyond that capacity. You have to know what’s coming, where it’s coming from and how to deal with.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let’s deal with the situation with Captain Brett Crozier from the USS Theodore Roosevelt. As you know, he was fired earlier this week. The president said yesterday he 100 percent supports that decision. Your response?

BIDEN: I think it’s — I think it’s close to criminal the way they’re dealing with this guy. Not his conduct. The idea that this man stood up and said what had to be said, got it out that his troops, his — his Navy personnel were in danger — in danger.

Look at how many have the virus. I think the guy should be — he should be — have a commendation whether than be fired.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Finally, sir, let — I want to turn to some politics before we go.

As you know, Wisconsin now having its primary on Tuesday, your opponent Sanders said that should be put off and the governor now joining that chorus as well. But it looks like it’s going to happen.

Is that wise?

BIDEN: Well, look, I think they should follow the science, I — and, you know, what I’ve been hearing, I have been following it like you have, like everybody has, watching the court action, it’s still in court now. And — but I think whatever — whatever the science says is what we should do.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And does that hold for the convention as well? If — are you open to the idea that — it just may not be possible to do the convention in August?

BIDEN: Well, we’re going to have to do a convention, may have to do a virtual convention. I know — I think we should be thinking about that right now. The idea of holding a convention is going to be necessary, but we may not be able to put 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 people in one place and that’s very possible. Again, let’s see where it is.

What we do between now and then is going to dictate a lot of that as well. But my point is that I think you just got to follow the science. Listen to the experts. Listen to the Faucis of the world. And if that’s the case, it’s the case.

But we cannot let this — we’ve never allowed any crisis from a Civil War straight through to a pandemic in ‘17, all the way around, in ’16, we have never, never let our democracy take second fiddle, we can both have a democracy and elections and at the same time protect the public health.

But I think it’s time we start thinking about how we’re going to hold elections, whether we’re going to have to spend a lot of time figuring whether we do — is it going to mostly be by mail, which is not the preferred route for everyone — how are we going to do that? How are we going to make it available to everybody?

And I think that has to be —

(CROSSTALK)

STEPHANOPOULOS: I know you talked to Bernie —

BIDEN: — smart people thinking about now.

STEPHANOPOULOS: I know you talked to Bernie Sanders about your vice presidential pick, and tell us a little bit about how that’s going. Is he ready to unify behind your candidacy? And has he given you any recommendations?

BIDEN: Well, look, what I’ve said about the vice presidency, I said — I was apologizing because it was a bit presumptuous for me to be setting up a committee to go through the process of — and you’ve been through it before in your other life, of deciding, doing the background checks on potential nominees. And, I was apologizing to him by saying, Bernie, I don’t want to in any way and not in any way to demean your effort, but if we don’t start now, we’re not going to be able to get there. And he was very gracious, he said he understood.

It wasn’t about asking him for recommendations of who he or I would pick were we the nominee for vice president. It was about saying to him, Bernie, I feel somewhat foolish since although it’s likely — I’m the overwhelming likelihood to get the nomination that, in fact, it’s not officially done yet and I’m moving forward with a committee for vice presidential selection and to be able to set up a circumstance where the background checks can be done. As you know, they take a lot of time, and if we don’t start now or shortly in the month of April, it’s going to be hard to get it done.

So, I was basically apologizing and making it clear that I wasn’t trying to be presumptuous, in any way push him. And he said he appreciated that. That was the extent of our discussion about the vice presidency.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Mr. Vice President, thanks for your time this morning.

BIDEN: Thank you. Thank you, George. Good luck to you, man.

Source: Daily Wire: Biden Falsely Claims: 45 Nations Blocked Chinese Nationals From Entering U.S. Before Trump Did

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s communications director Kate Bedingfield claimed on Wednesday that videos of Biden struggling to “complete a sentence” were conspiracy theories that were part of a smear campaign.

“Real quick, I just want to ask you about the videos that keep coming out,” Fox News’ Ed Henry asked. “Whether it was the one over the weekend where Joe Biden seemed to be struggling to talk about whether or not you should vote for him or vote for Donald Trump’s re-election. Bottom line is, you know the Trump campaign is pushing these videos out there and they’re asking a basic question: is Joe Biden fit to be Commander-in-Chief? How do you answer that?”

“You know, I have to say this is a disgusting smear tactic, and this kind of thing is exactly why people want Joe Biden to be president,” Bedingfield responded. “This kind of false, misleading, basically conspiracy theory, that, uh, you know, a desperate–”

“Hang on,” Henry interjected. “How is it a smear tactic to ask you about a video where the vice president, in his own words, struggles to complete a sentence. How is that a smear tactic?”

“Ed, respectfully, how many times have you struggled to complete a sentence on air?” Bedingfield responded. “That’s ridiculous.”

“I’m not running for president, Kate,” Henry responded.

Bedingfield added, “If I’m Donald Trump and I saw Joe Biden last night giving the speech that he gave sounding presidential, looking like a leader, if I’m looking at the turnout that he is generating across the country, I’m scared too, and starting to throw this kind of nonsense against the wall.”

WATCH:

Scrutiny over Biden’s fitness for office has increased in recent weeks as more and more clips of him have circulated on cable news and on social media.

Recently, podcast host Joe Rogan expressed serious concern about Biden, saying, “Stop. Pause. He can’t be president. Stop. Pause. Pause. Listen, we can’t play any games here, folks. This is a really old man who can’t talk. This is not a joke. Like that right now, ‘you know the thing,’ play that again. This should get you into a mental hospital. They should be like, ‘Hey, um, Joe are you alright?’”

During the Democratic presidential debates, Biden’s competitors have also raised concern over it.

After one of the debates, then-candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) criticized Biden over concerns that he couldn’t “carry the ball,” telling CNN, “I think we are at a tough point right now because there’s a lot of people concerned about Joe Biden’s ability to carry the ball all the way across the end line without fumbling. And I think that Castro had really legitimate concerns about can he be someone in a long, grueling campaign … and has every right to call out.”

“I think there were a lot of moments where a number of us were looking on the stage when he tends to go on sometimes,” Booker continued. “At one point, he was talking about communities like mine listening to record players. I don’t remember the last time I saw a record player … But there are definitely moments where you listen to Joe Biden and you just wonder …”

A resurfaced video of Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg emerged over the week that showed him discussing health care while visiting a Jewish family in 2011 where he said that elderly people should be denied treatment for cancer as a solution for managing hospital’s scarce resources.

Bloomberg, who railed against Obamacare while talking to the Jewish family, said, “All of these costs keep going up, nobody wants to pay any more money and at the rate we’re going, health care is going to bankrupt us.”

“So, not only do we have a problem, it’s going to bankrupt us and we’ve got to sit here and say, ‘which things are we going to do and which things we’re not,’” Bloomberg continued. “Nobody wants to do that.”

“You know, you show up with prostate cancer and you’re 95-years-old, we should say, ‘go and enjoy, have a nice [inaudible], live a long life,’” Bloomberg continued. “There’s no cure and you can’t do anything, if you’re a young person we should do something about it. Society is not willing to do that yet, so [health care] is going to bankrupt us and we’re not looking at prophylactic care, we’re not trying to take care of things, so we don’t get sick.”

Bloomberg later praised the socialized medicine that Europe has, suggesting that it was better than America’s health care system.

“If you look in Europe, if you look in Europe, we spend here about $7,000 odd dollars per person per year on health care in the United States,” Bloomberg said. “In Europe it’s about $3,300, less than half, their life expectancy 2-3 years greater.”

TRANSCRIPT:

BLOOMBERG: “It’s going to get worse with [Obamacare] and with the governor’s cutbacks because the governor’s cutbacks, which you may not have any choice in all fairness to the governor, but there’d be less money. Some of these small hospitals will close, some of these other programs, and people will come into the HHC hospitals and that’s, you know—”

PERSON IN ROOM: “They will be there for days in these emergency rooms.”

BLOOMBERG: “Well, they try to decide what things they can fix right away and what things they can’t fix right away. You know, if you’re bleeding, they’ll stop the bleeding. If you need an x-ray, you’re going to have to wait. All of these costs keep going up, nobody wants to pay anymore money and at the rate we’re going, health care is going to bankrupt us. So, not only do we have a problem, it’s going to bankrupt us and we’ve got to sit here and say, ‘which things are we going to do and which things we’re not.’ Nobody wants to do that. You know, you show up with prostate cancer and you’re 95-years-old, we should say, ‘go and enjoy, have a nice [inaudible], live a long life.’ There’s no cure and you can’t do anything, if you’re a young person we should do something about it. Society is not willing to do that yet, so [health care] is going to bankrupt us and we’re not looking at prophylactic care, we’re not trying to take care of things, so we don’t get sick. Nobody ever says thank you for keeping you from getting sick, they say thank you if you’re sick and we cure you. If you look in Europe, if you look in Europe, we spend here about $7,000 odd dollars per person per year on health care in the United States. In Europe it’s about $3,300, less than half, their life expectancy 2-3 years greater. In New York City in all fairness, life expectancy is now a year better than the country as a whole and it’s up a year and seven months in the last nine years. It’s because of reduced smoking makes a big difference, lower crime rate makes a big difference, faster response time fire engines, better traffic signs, closing Broadway saves a lot of lives, it’s one of the highest pedestrian fatality neighborhoods in the city.”

PERSON IN ROOM: “So what is the solution to the emergency rooms at the end of the day?”

BLOOMBERG: “We have to put some more money into emergency rooms, but you have to fix, there’s two solutions for that, but for most of the medical things, both cost and why we don’t live longer. One is, fix the immigration laws because we have doctors, they train here and then we don’t give them green cards. It’s easy here, in the middle of the country you can drive two hours to get to a doctor because all those doctors who are willing to go there, you know, a young Pakistani doctor probably not going to make a living here, he’d be welcomed in the community because they need a doctor and eventually they’ll accept him. You know, they’ll invite him to dinner because he saved their lives and then he’ll meet other people and then he becomes part of the community. They’re not there, so if you have a stroke, the next five minutes is critical, two hours, forget about it. I mean if you have a broken arm, it doesn’t make any difference. So, one thing is fixing immigration, and the–”

BLOOMBERG: “And the other thing is tort law. First thing you should ask your doctor is: do you give every test known to man? If the guy says no, say, ‘you’re stupid because your whole livelihood, the ability to support your family, some stupid jury is going to take away everything, you gotta be crazy. Just do it.’ And that balloons the cost and ties up emergency rooms, so you want to know two things to do, concrete things you can do. Are we going to do either one of them? Kind of hard to see guys.”

On Wednesday’s episode of “The Andrew Klavan Show,” Klavan covers the reactions of journalists who discover that the public doesn’t care about impeachment. Video and partial transcript below:

[Rep. Adam] Schiff [(D-CA)] is saying they’re now going to move the hearings, after Thanksgiving, into the Judiciary Committee, where Jerry Nadler — who’s always so great at this stuff. This is why they took it away — it was supposed to be handled by [the Judiciary] Committee, impeachment has always been handled by that committee. But why they put it in Adam Schiff’s committee? Because they thought Nadler was incompetent.

Pelosi didn’t trust him, now they’re still going to come back with more of this stuff because they can’t believe — they’re telling you, go home at Thanksgiving and talk to your family about impeachment. Great advice, Democrats. Thanks a lot, that’s the Thanksgiving we all want.

On CBS, they send one of their guys out to California, this is in California, and he makes a startling discovery that no one knew except everyone who’s not in the press.

ANCHOR 1: Now, one thing we asked the diners about was their opinion to the impeachment saga, and almost to a person — Republicans, independents, and Democrats — told us they’re not quite sure where it’s headed, but were more interested in other issues that impact their everyday lives. Those folks in Bakersfield, they were at dinner, even said they think this process is merely exposing the hypocrisy on both sides. Republicans did it to a Democrat years ago, now it’s Democrats doing it to a Republican president. We’ll see, but it doesn’t come up in conversation unless you ask.

ANCHOR 2: Oh, that’s very interesting.

ANCHOR 3: And when the candidates are out there campaigning, as you’ve seen, they don’t bring it up often with voters.

ANCHOR 1: That’s right, because the voters don’t bring it up. They want to know about health care, education — what are you gonna do for me. So it’s not —

ANCHOR 3: So it’s not a winning issue, it doesn’t look like.

ANCHOR 1: No.

ANCHOR 4: And you’re always traveling and covering the debates and whatnot, were you surprised by anything that you heard?

ANCHOR 1: That impeachment wasn’t coming up …

I just love that he was surprised that impeachment wasn’t coming up. What do we have to do to sell these devastating bombshells that are so explosive?! They’re explosive bombshells, and the bombshells are explosive and devastating!

And nobody cares. They don’t bring it up if you ask them about it — they don’t bring it up. CNN: Same thing. They go to Philadelphia, one of the most left-wing cities, sit down with a Democrat voter and then talking to her.

NARRATOR: Democrats sounding off in the city, one of the bluest parts of Pennsylvania, a state President Trump won by a slim margin in 2016.

LAFFERTY: Both Republicans and Democrats need to get this behind them.

NARRATOR: Even a strong cup of coffee can’t shake Democrat Martin Lafferty from her impeachment fatigue.

LAFFERTY: I am tired. I’m tired of it all, I really am. I didn’t think I’d ever say that because I’m such a political animal.

Here’s a real poll from Vanity Fair, okay. Because when they have these polls [that] 50% of Americans want the president removed, it’s just nonsense because we already know that the Democrats are convinced the Republicans have been uniquely unified, that this is nonsense, because it is nonsense. Vanity Fair talks to the people who haven’t made up their minds, independents [who] say that the impeachment issue is, quote, “more important to politicians than it is to me,” by a margin of 62% to 22%.

Now, you can get 22% of Americans say anything — the moon is made of green cheese. Virtually everybody thinks this is more important to politicians than it is to me, and quote “more important to the media than it is to me,” 61% to 23%. The same thing. It says, “it is hard,” this Vanity Fair, very left-wing magazine, “It is hard to read this as anything but a warning to the Democratic leadership and candidates: Stop talking about issues that matter to you, not to me.”

The New York Times, a former newspaper, now basically the anti-Trump headquarters of the crazy work of twenty-five year olds who run the newsroom — when Dean Baquet is bullied by them into doing what they want. New York Times, says “They voted Democratic. Now they support Trump.” [It says] “two-thirds of battleground state voters who chose Trump in 2016, but selected Democrats in the midterms say they’ll return to the president next year.”

In other words, they voted for a Democrat during the midterms, but they’re coming back to the president. Success in the midterms might not mean as much for Democratic presidential candidates as the party might think, which means — to further interpret it — means that these Democrat congresspeople in states that favor Trump are in danger if they vote for impeachment.

Jon Voight has a message for the American people — “Donald Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”

The Academy Award-winning actor and star of Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” posted his message as a video on Twitter Friday night. In it, Voight urges Americans not to be “fooled by the political left.” America, he states, is “witnessing triumph” and is “stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our president has made his every move correct.”

This is not the first time Voight has released a message to the American people from his Twitter account. In April, he offered a brief address on Twitter in support of Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who he says “we need very much at this time when our president is being attacked with lies and slanders from the media.”

Voight was an early and outspoken supporter of candidate Donald Trump and has been one of the president’s most ardent defenders in Hollywood. He spoke several times at various events during Mr. Trump’s inauguration, including during the inauguration concert, during which he declared, “God answered our prayers.”

Voight, one of the few outspoken conservative voices in Hollywood, is currently working alongside Dennis Quaid on a drama on Ronald Reagan, which follows the actor-turned-president from “his childhood to his time in the oval office.” Voight also recently played Justice Warren E. Burger in the film “Roe v. Wade” (in post-production), which tells the story of the “national battle in this untold conspiracy that led to the most famous and controversial court case in history.”

Along with his roles in several television series over his decades-long career, Voight has starred in major films from a wide range of genres, including “Catch-22” (1970), “Deliverance” (1972), “Heat” (1995), “Mission Impossible” (1996), “Transformers” (2007) and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (2016). Voight was nominated for Academy Awards for best actor in a leading role for “Midnight Cowboy” (1969) and “Runaway Train” (1985) and best actor in a supporting role for “Ali” (2001). In 1979, he won the Oscar for best actor in a leading role for “Coming Home” (1978). He’s also won several Golden Globes, including two for his role as Mickey Donovan.
