Appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper, former President Bill Clinton called the GOP effort to replace the vacancy left by Ginsburg as soon as possible “superficially hypocritical.”

Clinton praised the icon who passed at the age of 87 and said “She was highly respected because she bent over backwards to work with the other judges when she could. And she stood up and was counted when she couldn’t.”

Speaking of Trump and McConnell’s effort to move quickly to fill Ginsburg’s vacancy, Bill Clinton said their “first value is power and they’re trying to jam the court with as many ideological judges as they can.”

“It’s going to further spread cynicism in our system,” he continued.

“You can’t keep a democracy if there is one set of rules for one group and another set for everybody else,” Clinton added.

President Donald Trump said Saturday he’s given his “blessing” to a proposed deal between Oracle and Walmart for the U.S. operations of TikTok, the Chinese-owned app he’s targeted for national security and data privacy concerns.

Trump said the proposed deal will result in a new company likely to be based in Texas and under the control of U.S.-based Oracle and Walmart.

“I have given the deal my blessing,” he said. “If they get it done, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s OK too.”

Trump has been targeting TikTok, a popular video-sharing app, as well as WeChat, another Chinese-owned app.

Democrats immediately started scolding Donald Trump the moment Supreme Court Justice RBG died. President Trump, undeterred, said it was his duty to pick another Supreme Court nominee. Joe Biden, no doubt egged on by his campaign, gave a speech lecturing Trump on what to do. But, once again, the mentally frail man made a massive gaffe.

After Justice Scalia died in 2016, Democrats (including Joe Biden and Obama) demanded the Senate confirm a new justice immediately. But thanks to the fact that Obama was a lame duck, the majority Republican Senate refused to pick a new justice before the election. However, now that there is yet another opening on the court during an election year, suddenly Democrats want to wait until after the election!

Funny, they want Trump to have to wait a few months to make his pick in his second term.

The Internet has been boiling with Democrats outraged that Trump would do his Constitutional duty to pick a new justice. Joe Biden, probably forced in front of the cameras by his handlers, demanded that the vacancy stay open until January.

Something tells me he wasn’t ready to appear in public, as once again, he said something totally bizarre.

Joe Biden claimed on Sunday that, by the time he would be done speaking, 200 million Americans will have died from the coronavirus.

As Biden demanded inaction from the U.S. Senate on providing advice and consent on a potential Supreme Court nominee, he said, “It’s estimated 200 million people have died probably by the time I finish this talk.”

That would be roughly two-thirds of the country.

Several minutes later, he read from the teleprompter: “200,000.”

It’s not the first time Biden has had trouble with numbers this campaign.

In June, Biden claimed “over 120 million” have died from the virus before correcting himself, USA Today reported. [Source: Breitbart]

Really Joe? You can’t read 200,000 properly off a teleprompter? Didn’t 200 million sound a bit off to you?

Is the man even paying attention, anymore? Or is he just being a good boy and doing whatever his campaign tells him to?

You know, there is a very big difference between 200,000 and 200 million. The fact that Biden didn’t catch himself tells you something is very wrong with his comprehension skills.

But we should listen to him over his advice about handling the RBG vacancy!

We know why Democrats are freaking out, right now. They are panicking. Once again, Trump has the tremendous power to reshape the Supreme Court. He has already given it a slightly conservative majority. He just needed one more vacancy to make sure fair-weathered Roberts couldn’t throw off rulings. With a third appointment, conservatives will be defending the Constitution for decades to come.

That means Roe V Wade might be overturned sooner than anyone thought!

Democrats that want to delay the appointment actually believe Joe Biden is going to win! Trump could have easily waited, certain that he will defeat a man who is obviously suffering from dementia. But Democrats forced his hand with wild threats of war and “burning” down D.C.

Biden tried to put in his two cents, thinking it would sway public opinion. But the man can’t even read from a teleprompter properly. Why should we care what he thinks about the Supreme Court?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” that Democratic lawmakers have “arrows in our quiver,” when asked if impeachment was a possibility to stop a lame-duck Supreme Court nomination should President Donald Trump lose the White House in November and the vacancy following the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has not been filled.

Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Let me press you though on what happens. You want people to get out and vote. And even that’s no guarantee that the White House and Senate Republicans won’t try to push through a Supreme Court nomination in a lame-duck session even if Joe Biden wins on November 3rd, even if Democrats win, pick up seats in the House, and maybe even the Senate. So what can you do then? Some have mentioned the possibility if they try to push through a nominee in a lame-duck session that you and the House can move to impeach President Trump or Attorney General Barr as a way of stalling and preventing the Senate from acting on this nomination.”

Pelosi said, “Well, we have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country. This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made. So right now, our main goal and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be to protect the integrity of the election, that we protect the American people from the coronavirus.”

Stephanopoulos pressed, “To be clear, you’re not taking any arrows out of your quiver and not ruling anything out.”

Pelosi said, “Yeah, we have a responsibility. We’ve taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people. That is when we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”

A female suspect was arrested by Customs and Border Patrol Agents trying to enter the United States from Canada.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that authorities were seeking an unidentified Canadian woman suspect.

The letter addressed to President Trump was intercepted Saturday by federal agents.

Package Containing Deadly Poison Ricin Addressed to President Trump Intercepted by Authorities

NBC News reported:

A suspect who allegedly sent a letter containing the deadly poison ricin to the White House was detained trying to enter the United States from Canada, a federal law enforcement official said Sunday.

Additional information about the person was not immediately available.

The FBI said Saturday that it was investigating a suspicious letter addressed to President Donald Trump that had been intercepted.

It wasn’t clear when the letter was sent or where it was intercepted. Law enforcement officials said the poison, which is highly toxic and can cause nausea, vomiting and internal bleeding was detected at an off-site facility that screens mail addressed to the White House.

The ricin was discovered during a field test and confirmed during a laboratory test.

Once again, only some political stances are acceptable in professional sports.

As the professional sports leagues continue with their insistence on social activism in their stadiums and arenas, it is apparent theirs is a targeted agenda. In seeming resistance to the fans who are turning away from the political posturing, they continue to lecture on certain subjects while stating firmly others are not permitted. As has now been proven, President Donald Trump is completely off-limits.

Going beyond what will be allowed on the field, the Carolina Panthers have shown an even wider level of football intolerance. After a series of commands directed at one of its Spanish language broadcasters, they have decided to not renew his contract over his political opinions, namely his outward support of President Trump. It is not only a contradiction of the social messaging demanded of the fans to support, it is a creeping mandate into the personal lives of others.

Luis Moreno Jr. is a longtime and popular commentator on Spanish-language radio who covered games for the Carolina Panthers. The Mexican immigrant, who came to this country as a teenager has, at the age of 42, become a naturalized citizen as of last month, and is a proud backer of the President. During his downtime this spring due to the pandemic, Moreno became more politically active and this was reflected in his private social media accounts.

At some point, Moreno was contacted by management and told that the organization requested that he remove the team name from his social media accounts. Moreno complied, even though he was technically an independent contractor and did not work directly for the Carolina Panthers. When contacted a second time about his postings, he was told that team management requested to speak with him, though he made it clear he had no intention of curtailing his messaging.

That discussion with the VP of Communications for the Panthers never took place. His position was replaced with a Mexico-based broadcaster. The more revealing aspect is that for 10 years, Moreno shared the broadcasts with his uncle, Jaime Moreno. The two have differing views on things, a component that was said to make their broadcasts even more compelling. Though less outspoken Jaime is politically different than his nephew, something Moreno Jr. is fine about. ”We’re not fighting or anything. We just didn’t see eye to eye,’’ he says of his uncle. ”I was aware that when there was backlash, it was something that I was going to have to do on my own.’’

This is just one of the ways the NFL, and the other professional sports leagues, have displayed how they are veering off course. The controversies which have reared up over the past 5 years have to do not with players becoming political but with dragging politics onto the sporting stage itself. Fans can choose to listen or not listen to speech in the post-game setting, or during the week.

When the politics are dragged into the live broadcasts — displayed at game time and even painted onto the fields and courts — the agnostic fan has only the choice to not watch the games themselves. A player off the field is entitled to all the expressions they desire, like any citizen. But the leagues insist on sending out their message in the game format and — like in this case with Moreno Jr. — there seems intolerance towards private opinions which differ.

“I’m hurt,” Moreno Jr. says, “because this has nothing to do with my performance on-air. None of my support for the president was done on any of their social-media pages, it was never done on any of the airtime — whether it was a podcast or a broadcast or anything related to the Panthers. This was solely on my personal time on my personal accounts.”

This typifies how wrong-headed so much of this woke activism in sports has become. The leagues have stridently declared that players and management have a right to expression, trending close to the point of demanding their views be respected and accepted. Yet, as they display this in the playing boundaries to the dismay of many, those who choose to have differing views on the matters are not granted this same decency. Even when conducted on private accounts and areas apart from the arenas there are commands and criticisms at times.

The NBA will allow activist terms on their jerseys, but only those with league approval. The NFL supports kneeling for the national anthem but Drew Brees was cowed into apologizing for wanting to stand up for the flag. In baseball, players have had to answer media interrogations when they elected to not kneel during the national anthem. We have had years of being told Colin Kaepernick is an athletic voice to be listened to, yet those same supporters were vocal in criticizing Herschel Walker for his support of President Trump.

Now, when a broadcaster is expressing views on his private accounts, a team sees a need to sever ties. To his credit, Moreno Jr. did not back down from the edicts of the franchise. ”I am not OK with them censoring my freedom of speech in support of the president.’’ The newly christened citizen is very excited to be able to vote for the first time. His enthusiasm to cast a vote for President Trump has not been diminished.

Black Lives Matter, the group behind the riots and $1 billion in destruction in cities across the country, is an organization of trained, committed Marxists.

As Cristina Laila reported back in June — the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Patrisse Cullors — admitted in an interview last week that she is a trained Marxist and the goal of the movement is the removal of Donald Trump.

Patrisse Collors also admitted the goal is to destroy freedom.

As Paul Sperry reported Cullors’ father and brother were in and out of jail and this shaped her deep hatred of police.

Another leader of Black Lives Matter, Opal Tmeti, traveled to Venezuela to cozy up to the communist tyrant Nicolas Maduro.

And now a third reported leader of Black Lives Matter Alicia Garza came out as a stone-cold Marxist in a mostly ignored video from September 2017, over two years ago.

In the video Alicia Garza talks about how “no force in the world” causes more misery than capitalism.

Make no mistake, the Black Lives Matter movement being pushed on America based on faulty data and raw emotion is nothing but a Marxist movement to destroy America.

Under the guise of seeking to “prevent a constitutional crisis,” a massive network of well funded left-wing activists and progressive groups are training, organizing, and planning to mobilize millions of Americans should President Trump “contest the election results,” refuse to concede, or claim an early victory.

More than 80 advocacy groups and grassroots organizations have joined in a broad coalition calling itself “Protect the Results” and proclaiming that “we cannot ignore the threat that Trump poses to our democracy and a peaceful transition of power.”

The coalition is a joint project of Indivisible and Stand Up America, two left-wing groups founded in response to President Trump’s 2016 election and whose goals are “to organize and resist Trump’s dangerous agenda” and “to defeat Trump and his enablers.”

Seeking to “protect” election results by use of its millions of members, the coalition calls to “take coordinated action” and “prepare for a potential post-election crisis.”

“Be prepared,” warns a video on its homepage.

Both founding groups of the coalition (Indivisible and Stand up America) are part of the Soros-funded Democracy Alliance (DA), the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the U.S.

DA’s large body of donors aggregates resources for “focused investment,” marshalling as much as $80 million per year.

In 2017, DA developed a “resistance map” — a mix of anti-Trump groups it recommends its members donate to, many of which are now part of Protect the Results.

Other Soros-funded coalition groups include MoveOn, Women’s March, the Working Families Party and the Center for Popular Democracy, a network with over 50 local partners in 32 states, among many others.

Having likened President Trump to a dictator, left-wing billionaire George Soros declared in a recent interview that Trump is dangerous, is “fighting” for his political life, and will do “anything to remain in power.”

Given his harsh depiction of Trump, it is hardly surprising that Soros-backed groups are leading the so-called “resistance” post-Election Day.

Heads of the DA coalition “resistance” groups have been quite vocal in recent days about their intentions to put up a fight this November.

“If Trump wants to ignore the will of the people and fight over election results, it’s a fight he’ll get,” said Nelini Stamp, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at the Working Families Party. 

“Will we be successful? We’re going to fight like hell to make sure we are,” said Rahna Epting, executive director of MoveOn, another Soros-funded group that joined the coalition.

“Our resistance is key in protecting the outcome of this election,” said Arisha Michelle Hatch, Executive Director of Color Of Change PAC. “We will mobilize to safeguard Black people from the chaos and pain that will inevitably ensue should Trump choose to disregard reality in November.”

Coalition group heads have described the battle against Trump’s re-election as predicated on the unfounded notion that the president has been tirelessly working to undermine the upcoming elections.

“He’s [Trump] laying the groundwork now to steal the election; we need to lay the groundwork now to fight back,” said Sarah Dohl, co-founder and chief communications officer at Indivisible.

“Trump is already laying the groundwork by declaring the result rigged, so we are sounding the alarm now,” said Sean Eldridge, president of Stand Up America and co-founder of Protect the Results.

Claiming that, for years, “Trump has sought to undermine our elections again and again,” Elridge stated, “We would mobilize, take to the streets, put pressure on state and local election officials [to make clear that] the U.S. people are not going to let Donald Trump steal this election.”

Ryan Thomas, a senior spokesperson for Stand Up America, told Newsweek that “Trump poses an existential threat to our democracy and is already working to undermine the election.”

“Donald Trump is not running a re-election campaign. He’s running a power grab,” said Ben Wessel, executive director of NextGen America, a coalition group funded by billionaire Tom Steyer — the failed Democratic presidential candidate and major donor to DA.

Not only is Trump accused of undermining the upcoming elections, but his current legitimate status as president is denied as well as he is accused of rigging the previous election, as noted in a recent tweet from one of Indivisible’s accounts.

“Donald Trump only won the 2016 election by cheating,” the tweet reads. “That’s the only way he’ll win this one, too […]”

With a Trump-must-go-no-matter-what attitude, the idea of a legitimate Trump win is all but impossible.

“When we win in November,” says Indivisible’s IE Political Director Lucy Solomon in a video describing the group’s preparations, they intend to ensure that “Trump isn’t able to steal this election in the days afterwards.”

“On November 3rd. After you vote, get in the streets! Donald Trump must go and we must make it happen!” reads a post tweeted in August by the far-left ShutDownDC, an “organizing space” partnering with Protect the Results which plans to “rise up to confront the Trump administration’s attacks on democracy” and offers training sessions for coalition members to prepare to take “direct action.”

Additionally, several prominent figures have expressed fears of Trump seizing power if the elections resulted in a loss for him, claiming that he is already prepping the ground for a de facto coup.

The baseless notion is increasingly promoted by those opposed to Trump.

Amplifying the groundless notion even further, an article by the Nation last week titled, “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” was widely circulated among leaders of groups from Protect the Results in order to encourage individuals to join their effort.

Ezra Levin, co-founder of Indivisible, tweeted:

New cover story in the Nation from @AbramskySasha. Trump’s a loser and will try to cheat, so we’re preparing

In a bid to encourage more to join the coalition, Stand Up America founder Sean Eldridge, also referencing the article, wrote:

“We’re going to need all hands on deck.”

The article states that what the Protect the Results leadership is planning “isn’t a run-of-the-mill protest” but rather “a national campaign capable of bringing millions of people into the streets,” potentially for months.

They are going to have to develop a durable movement that could operate like the democracy movement in Hong Kong or the movements that peacefully brought down Communist rule in Eastern Europe a generation ago.

Protect the Results has partnered with the secretive Fight Back Table (FBT), an initiative launched after the 2016 election to form a constellation of leftist organizations working more closely together.

FBT and leaders from Protect the Results reportedly discussed their plans in secret during a Zoom virtual meeting last week, with the Daily Beast reporting how they discussed standing up to a multi-state communications arm as well as training for civil disobedience and mass public disorder.

The alliance is pushing the Democrat assumption that election results will be illegitimate absent a huge Biden victory.

Leading Democratic figures have followed suit, laying the ground for chaos and mass unrest.

Former First Lady Hillary Clinton urged Biden not to concede the election “under any circumstances,” while the Democratic presidential candidate said he is confident that Trump is “going to try to steal this election.”

With a well-funded coalition of anti-Trump groups prepping the battlefield for post-election anarchy, such statements are hardly trivial.

“This is lawlessness.”

After months of destructive and costly riots popping up in mostly Democrat-controlled cities across the nation, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has finally condemned the violence — though she did not mention Black Lives Matter or Antifa by name.

“We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting,” Pelosi said Thursday, rebuking accusations that Democrats have not denounced the violence. “They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”

According to a USA Today “fact check” last month, Pelosi did not condemn violent acts by Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters for the recent destruction, though the outlet did note that Pelosi once condemned violent acts from “people calling themselves Antifa,” way back in 2017.

WATCH:

The change in tune was noticed online. Conservative writer Stephen L. Miller, for example, quipped, “Someone’s office got some polling data.”

Indeed, recent polling in so-called “riot zones” shows President Donald Trump being favored significantly against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The Daily Wire reported Wednesday:

A new poll from Rassmussen Reports suggests that “Riot Zone” voters — those who live in and around areas affected by recent looting and destruction — favor President Donald Trump’s approach to handling unrest by a 2-to-1 margin.

The Washington Examiner reports that the poll, which, as The Daily Wire pointed out Wednesday, also has Trump leading for the first time, shows that “63% of voters who have seen violent protests in their community ‘strongly approve’ of the president — just 35% don’t.”

“The survey is the latest showing Trump winning the ‘law and order vote’ as the country sees violence from the protests expand from big cities to smaller communities, such as Lancaster, Pennsylvania,” The Washington Examiner noted, adding: “Trump’s position is not only winning fans but may also be helping his overall approval rating. Rasmussen, for example, also said that Trump’s approval rating is 51% for a second day. At this stage of his presidency and reelection campaign, former President Barack Obama had a 49% approval rating.”

President Trump and his surrogates are clearly aware of the winning “law and order” message, in stark contrast with elected Democrats. A viral video compiled last month highlights the destructive riots and top Democrats’ heated remarks, including from Speaker Pelosi.

Featured at both the beginning and end of the video compilation, Pelosi refers to Republicans and the White House as “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state” and boosts “uprisings all over the country.”

“We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the speaker said in August. “And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and our honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.”

“They’re doing everything they can—suppress the vote with your actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this,” Pelosi said, adding, “It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state.”

Additionally, in June of 2018 Pelosi said while speaking about humanitarian issues at the border, “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country—and maybe there will be, when [people] realize that this is a policy that they defend.”

Joe Biden praised the idea of incorporating fact-checkers into the presidential debates, but those desperately needed fact-checkers were nowhere to be found at CNN’s town hall event with Biden on Thursday.

In stark contrast to President Trump’s town hall event with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos earlier this week, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and a crowd of mostly friendly supporters took turns asking the 77-year-old candidate softball questions.

Biden told all sorts of lies during the one-hour event on CNN, a fitting location for such fake news. Biden lied when he accused President Trump of not mentioning the coronavirus in his State of the Union Address.

“My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat,” Trump said in his State of the Union Address, which Nancy Pelosi ripped up in anger.

Biden also repeated debunked conspiracy theories about the Post Office and mail collection boxes, though he couldn’t remember the name of “those, those, those, um, places where you mail your ballots.”

Biden blamed President Trump for the coronavirus pandemic, saying that “if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive.” To prove his preposterous claim, Biden told the crowd to simply “look at the data.” That’s what Joe Biden and the Democrats mean by “science.”

Biden called on governors to enforce mask-wearing and vowed to mandate mask-wearing on federal property if elected president. But while CNN and Biden pretended to be taking the virus seriously, a maskless Biden was caught approaching Cooper and whispering in the host’s ear as CNN cut to a commercial.

It also looks like CNN went to great lengths to find Biden supporters to ask friendly questions of the candidate. Here’s one example:

Biden interrupted the one Trump supporter there as she attempted to ask her question.

After denying that his climate plan embraces policies of the green new deal, Biden said he didn’t think AOC’s Green New Deal “is too much” and says his own plan will “fundamentally change the way in which we deal with the environment.” AOC told a reporter on Thursday that she was confident she and other progressives would push Joe Biden to the far left.

If one thing stood out more than anything at CNN’s fake town hall event, it’s that Joe Biden is too old to be president.
