HERE WE GO: Obama Won’t Endorse Harris, Wants Open Convention

Geller Report - Mon, 07/22/2024 - 15:15

This has always been the plan all along. I have said for years, it will never be Biden. I said for years that they would replace Biden at the last minute in order to avoid the vetting, the process and most importantly, the will of the people.

I think they’ll bring in someone shiny and new (ie hard leftist Mark Kelly) that they can canonize and exalt with little to no time for counter vetting.

I know Soros 2.0 (Alex, the son) endorsed Harris but I think that’s subterfuge so that the Democrats say, ‘See?? Soros isn’t controlling the party!’

Who is running this country?

Obama Fails to Endorse Harris, Wants Open Convention

By: Sandy Fitzgerald, Newsmax, 21 July 2024:

Former President Barack Obama, in a statement Sunday praising President Joe Biden for his decision to leave his reelection race, did not endorse Vice President Kamala Harris’ candidacy instead calling for an open convention to decide on a new nominee.

“We will be navigating uncharted waters in the days ahead,” Obama said in his statement on Medium. “But I have extraordinary confidence that the leaders of our party will be able to create a process from which an outstanding nominee emerges.”

He added that Biden’s “vision of a generous, prosperous, and united America that provides opportunity for everyone will be on full display at the Democratic Convention in August.”

“I expect that every single one of us are prepared to carry that message of hope and progress forward into November and beyond,” Obama, who Biden served under for two terms as vice president, said.

Obama did not endorse any successors to Biden, who he called “one of America’s most consequential presidents, as well as a dear friend and partner to me. Today, we’ve also been reminded  —  again  —  that he’s a patriot of the highest order.”

Last week, Obama reportedly told allies that he did not believe Biden could defeat Republican nominee Donald Trump in November, following issues that were on display in their only presidential debate in June.

He did not comment on those reports in his statement Sunday, but did talk about Biden’s decision, saying that the president’s “outstanding track record” gave him “every right to run for re-election and finish the job he started.”

Treasonous Democrat Media Axis Moves to Install Hillary Clinton

Geller Report - Sun, 07/21/2024 - 14:00

And just like that, the Democrat party of treason has activated their prostitutes and pimps in the Democrat media complex to advance the installation of the notorious Hillary Clinton as President.

Without even going into Hillary’s criminal and treasonous activities, is it not extraordinary that the Democrat party can just steamroll over the election and primary process, the will of the people and merely designate the dictator? How is that is somehow OK or normal let alone American?

Obama, Soros and the evil cabal running the country will choose the next dictator.

Hillary Clinton: Career Criminal
Just a few of the scandals, ies, & criminal activity

  • 1. Benghazi: “Clinton lied, four Americans died” on her watch & she was at the heart of the cover-up. Said she submitted all documents and four months after request, still more documents are uncovered. During testimony, famously said, “What Difference Does it Make!”
  • 2. Travelgate: fired all white house travel staff that had worked for 7 presidents, claiming financial misdeeds. & replaced with her friends, a travel business worth $31M annually. All employees were exonerated by the FBI, GAO, DOJ and others & reinstated.
  • 3. Vince Foster’s Death: longtime friend involved in several Clinton scandals, strange circumstances surrounded his death in 1993; investigation ensued & before police could arrive, Clinton staffers removed boxes on Whitewater & Travelgate; she claimed innocence.
  • 4. Hillary Care: National outrage on a self-admitted unqualified person in developing Hillary Care; delivered a 1342 page disastrous product. Fed judge threatened to hold them in contempt. It costs taxpayers $32M for the fiasco. Hillary fined $450K for dishonesty, court cost to taxpayers $750K. Voters later put Republicans in charge of house & senate, first time in 40 years due to this fiasco.
  • 5. As a Senator: she accomplished nothing, not a single piece of landmark legislation to her name, only 3 small insignificant bills.
  • 6. Chronic Habitual Liar: Every scandal surrounding her, she has lied about even under oath. She didn’t land under sniper fire in Iraq as she said, nor was she named after Sir Edmond Hillary. He climbed Mt Everest after she was born—too many lies to even mention.
  • 7. Whitewater Investigation: Hillary was the central figure in this fraudulent venture. Only 1st Lady to be subpoenaed by a grand jury. Investigation found pervasive conflicts between her law firm & others. Following their acquittal, the documents magical reappeared in the Clinton’s residence. She denied any knowledge but her fingerprints were all over the documents, cost to taxpayers: $145M.
  • 8. Clinton Legal Defense Fund: established to individuals or companies hoping to gain favor with the president could help pay Clinton’s endless legal bills. Also noteworthy: Saudi Arabia is funding 20% of her campaign.
  • 9. Filegate: Clinton administration improperly requested & received personal information for her “Enemies List” including background reports, credit card number and passwords of 900 individuals resulting in 3 investigations in 1996—names a “Congenital Liar” by the NY Times.
  • 10. IRS Abuses: She used the IRS to harass her enemies including Republicans, White House Travel Office, NRA, Judicial Watch, & other conservative groups, also Pres Clinton’s female accusers—Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Juanita Broadrick & Elizabeth Ward Gracen.
  • 11. Chinagate: In 1996 Justice Dept investigates campaign fundraising abuses & cover ups regarding: efforts by China to influence U.S. policies, government & military—funneled millions into the Clinton re-election campaign.
  • 12. Pardongate: As Pres Clinton left office in 2001—he pardoned 450 people for crimes from cocaine trafficking to kidnapping & terrorism.Several pardons benefitted Hillary & were investigated for direct ties to her NY senate bid, such as Marc Rich, billionaire felon & fugitive on FBI’s 10 most wanted list, his wife funneled millions into her senate campaign and $600K to the Clinton Library. Hillary denied her role in any pardons—list of pardons too long to mention here, but most benefited in some way for the Clintons.
  • 13. Cattlegate: her first trade investment of $5K for cattle futures returned $490K. She refused to release her tax info. She insisted she made all investments herself, however it was James Blair with Refco Investments who was outside counsel for Tyson Foods in Arkansas. She received preferential treatment & huge financial returns to influence her husband, then the Governor of Arkansas.
  • 14. Clinton Secrets: Presidential Records Act allow unrestricted access to documents after 12 years, 14 years later they still refuse to release them, in spite of 300 Freedom of Information Acts, completely ignored.
  • 15. State Dept Scandals: Sexual assaults by security officials in Beirut, endemic engagement of prostitutes by her security detail, solicitation of child male prostitutes by Belgium US Ambassador. She called off internal investigation into her State Dept claiming she had no knowledge of any scandals in her state dept.
  • 16. Clinton Foundation Conflicts of Interest: NY Times exposed the “moral & fiscal chaos & shameless fundraising” mired in conflict.
  • Hillary traveled to Moscow to urge the Russian government to purchase planes from Boeing. Two months later, contracts in hand, Boeing donated $900K to the Clinton (Crime) Foundation, now tied to her campaign. Foreign donations increased by 70% in 2008.
  • 17. Trashed the White House: During 2001 transition, the US GAO found that Clinton staffers not only left rude messages to the incoming Bush team, but caused THOUSANDS of dollars’ worth of damage to the White House—all done intentionally
  • 18. Lootergate: When the Clintons were “dead broke” after leaving the White House, allegations were the dynamic duo sent White House furniture to their personal home in NY. George Bush disregarded the “childish actions.”
  • 19. Women’s Rights: Self-declared commitment to human rights for women is a critical lie as she accepts large donations from Algeria,Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, UAE, & Saudi Arabia—those countries with the worst human rights for women.
  • 20. Military & Law Enforcement: She has been cited in numerous books for her hatred and disdain for the military, law enforcement, & her own secret service protection. Is that who you want for our Commander-in-Chief?

The ICJ is a Sharia Court Meting out Islamic Punishment and Fatwas

Geller Report - Sat, 07/20/2024 - 14:00

More Jew-hatred from the hideous, immoral and corrupt Left that governs the United Nations. This decision comes as Israel fights for it’s life on 7 fronts against Iran.

The terrible, horrible irony in all this is the United Nations was founded over seventy years ago in the wake of the Holocaust to ensure “never again.” Democracies, both nascent and well-established, comprised the majority of the founding nations of the UN. America was confident that the UN would be an organization which would work in tandem with American national interests in promoting the welfare of humankind and the basic rights of every human spirit.

Instead the UN has made it its mission to destroy the Jewish state and work furiously to make it happen again ….. and again. It has become the very thing it was founded to defeat. It’s sinister obsession with Israel it a sort of genocidal Tourette‘s. It keeps coming back to it like a dog to it’s own vomit.

It’s catastrophic historical failures, too numerous to outline here,is matched only by its incompetence, corruption and complicity. Back in the seventies, Ayn Rand wrote, “When an institution reaches the degree of corruption, brazen cynicism and dishonor demonstrated by the U.N. in its shameful history, to discuss it at length is to imply that its members and supporters may possibly be making an innocent error about its nature—which is no longer possible. There is no margin for error about a monstrosity that was created for the alleged purpose of preventing wars by uniting the world against any aggressor, but proceeded to unite it against any victim of aggression.”

“The Jewish people are not occupiers in their own land, including in our eternal capital Jerusalem nor in Judea and Samaria, our historical homeland.

Court Lets Arizona Reject Would-Be Voters Who Fail To Prove Citizenship On State Registration Form

By: Brianna Lyman, The Federalist, July 19, 2024:

A three-judge panel on Thursday allowed Arizona to enforce a law that requires state voter registration forms that lack documentary proof of citizenship to be rejected. The court stayed an injunction that had forced the state to register those applicants as federal-only voters.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled that “appellants … have satisfied the standard for a stay pending appeal with respect to the portion of the injunction barring enforcement of A.R.S § 16-121.01(C). “

Section 16-121.01(C), which the court ruled may be enforced, stipulates that “any application for [state] registration shall be accompanied by satisfactory evidence of citizenship … and the county recorder or other officer in charge of elections shall reject any application for registration that is not accompanied by satisfactory evidence of citizenship.”

The ruling means that county recorders are no longer required to register an applicant as a federal-only voter if he tried to register with a state form but could not prove his citizenship. The panel did deny Republicans’ request to prevent individuals who used a federal registration form from voting in the presidential race and voting by mail.

Arizona Senate President Warren Petersen celebrated the ruling as a “victory for election integrity.”

“Only U.S. citizens should be allowed to vote in our elections,” Petersen said in a statement shared on X. “It sounds like common sense, but the radical left elected officials in our state continue to reject this notion, disrespecting the voices of our lawful Arizona voters.”

Arizona voters approved Proposition 200 in 2004 which required documentary proof of citizenship and photo identification to vote. The Supreme Court ruled in 2013, however, that states could not require proof of citizenship to register to vote in federal elections and must use the standardized federal form, which simply asks each applicant to check a box affirming he is a citizen. Arizona responded by creating a separate state registration form which does require voters to provide documentary proof of citizenship.

A 2018 consent decree, however, forced the state to still register voters who used a state form but didn’t proof of citizenship as a federal-only voter. Federal-only voters may vote in presidential elections.

During the 2020 presidential race, in which President Joe Biden won the state by 10,457 votes, 11,600 federal-only ballots were cast, according to AZ Free News. There are currently more than 35,000 Arizonans who are registered to vote via a federal-only ballot, according to KAWC.

Trump Gunman Flew Drone Over Rally Site Hours Before Attempted Assassination

Discovery adds to growing list of stunning security lapses that almost led to former president’s killing

By Sadie Gurman and Aruna Viswanatha, Wall Street Journal, July 19, 2024:

The gunman who tried to kill Donald Trump was able to fly a drone and get aerial footage of the western Pennsylvania fairgrounds shortly before the former president was set to speak there, law-enforcement officials briefed on the matter said, further underscoring the stunning security lapses ahead of Trump’s near assassination.

Thomas Matthew Crooks flew the drone on a programmed flight path earlier in the day on July 13 to scour the Butler Farm Show grounds ahead of Trump’s ill-fated rally, the officials said. The predetermined path, the officials added, suggests Crooks flew the drone more than once as he researched and scoped out the event site.

The 20-year-old would-be assassin fired at least six rounds from the roof of the American Glass Research building roughly 400 feet away from where Trump spoke, killing one spectator, critically injuring two others and leaving Trump with a graze wound to the ear. A Secret Service sniper team shot back, killing Crooks, whose motive remains a mystery.

Multiple investigations are under way into how a gunman was able to climb onto a rooftop with a clear line of sight to Trump and open fire with an AR-15 rifle. Police had become suspicious of Crooks more than an hour earlier, when officers saw him milling about the edges of the rally with a range finder and a backpack.

The use of the drone was just one way in which authorities have said Crooks planned his attack. Crooks, described by friends as very smart yet withdrawn, began researching the site shortly after the Trump campaign announced the rally on July 3, and registered for the event on July 7, officials said. He visited the farm show grounds a few days later to scope it out.

On July 13, officials said, he returned with a pair of homemade bombs that appeared to be designed to be set off by remote control, as they were fitted with a receiver like the kind used to set off fireworks remotely. Investigators found the rudimentary explosives in Crooks’ car parked close to the grounds, along with a ballistic carrier, or vest, with three, 30-round magazines in it, an indication that he might have wanted to cause greater carnage.

CNN — 

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday said that Iran’s breakout time – the amount of time needed to produce enough weapons grade material for a nuclear weapon – “is now probably one or two weeks” as Tehran has continued to develop its nuclear program.

The assessment marks the shortest breakout time that US officials have ever referenced and comes as Iran has taken steps in recent months to boost its production of fissile material.

Democratic Party’s Favorite Terror-Tied Muslim Group CAIR Wants Israeli Athletes Banned From Paris Olympics

Geller Report - Sat, 07/20/2024 - 11:05

After praising the October 7 Hamas atrocities…..

Banning Jews from the Olympics – so Hitlerian.

Hamas-tied CAIR Has Operated With Impunity In America For 30 Years

Hamas Would Trade Hostages For Imprisoned Hamas-Linked CAIR LeaderExtensive report details decades of antisemitism at CAIR.

The absurdity of this becomes vividly clear when one recalls that CAIR officials have refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. What’s more, the Jerusalem Post noted Sunday that “according to an official document of the US Department of Justice in 2013, the FBI cut off ties with CAIR. ‘The guidance specifically stated that, until the FBI could determine whether there continued to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and Hamas, “the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner” for non-investigative activities,’ the document stated.”

US Muslim Group Wants Israel Expelled from Paris Olympics

By: David Israel, July 18, 2024 0

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the US largest Muslim organization, on Wednesday called on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban Israeli athletes from participation and recognition in the 2024 Olympics, to open on July 26, as the IOC punished Russia in response to its invasion of Ukraine.

In a decision last year, the IOC permitted Russian and Belarusian athletes to compete in the Olympic Games as neutral participants, without their national flags or anthems. last Tuesday, the IOC released a set of guidelines for these neutral athletes: a key announcement was that Russian and Belarusian competitors will be excluded from the 2024 Paris Olympics opening ceremony. This event will feature boats representing each national team sailing along the Seine River instead of the usual stadium parade. The IOC clarified that neutral athletes will not be part of this procession, stating, “they are individual athletes” rather than representing a national team.

CAIR Deputy Executive Director Edward Mitchell said: “Just as the International Olympic Committee banned the Russian government from official representation or participation due to the invasion of Ukraine, it’s time for the IOC to ban the Israeli government for its ongoing genocide in Gaza. Palestinian lives must matter just as much as Ukrainian lives. If the IOC ignores the Israeli government’s blatant targeting of civilians and systematic destruction of Gaza, it will send a message that war crimes only matter when the victims are white Europeans. The IOC must take a morally consistent and principled stand for justice and human dignity by banning the Israeli government from any official participation in the Olympics.”

CAIR launched a letter-writing campaign to IOC President Thomas Bach, saying: “Since last year, more than 38,000 Palestinians, including at least 15,000 children, have been mercilessly killed in the Israeli government’s indiscriminate attacks on Gaza. These are not isolated incidents but part of a systematic campaign of violence and extermination. Just as the Russian invasion of Ukraine led to the firm action by the IOC, the ongoing atrocities committed by Israel demand accountability and consequences.”

“Allowing the Israeli government to officially participate in the Olympics undermines the very principles upon which the Games are founded. It conveys a message that the international community is willing to overlook genocide and war crimes when the victims are not Europeans. This is unacceptable,” the letter campaign continues.

The letters conclude with a mad show of cynicism: “The Olympic Games should be a beacon of hope, unity, and respect for all human beings, whether Palestinians or Ukrainians or anyone else.”

‘Too Painful To Tell’: Trump Walks Through Brush With Death, Embraces Unity In Emotional RNC Finale

By: Reagan Reese, Daily Caller, July 19, 2024:

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN – When Donald Trump took the stage for the RNC finale and told attendees he was going to address the assassination attempt he survived, the stadium of thousands fell completely silent.

“You will never hear it from me a second time, because it is actually too painful to tell,” Trump began.

Just under a week after a failed attempt on his life, Trump took the RNC stage for his much-anticipated nomination acceptance speech. After barely dodging death on Saturday, Trump scrapped his entire speech and instead rewrote it himself, a Trump official told reporters ahead of the speech. Rather than heavily attacking the Biden administration, Trump wanted to focus on unity and use his near-death experience to bring the country together, the Washington Examiner first reported.

And so he did. A reflective and calm Trump closed out the RNC convention on Thursday, embracing unity and compassion during his emotional address.

All throughout the weekend, attendees, delegates and speakers remarked how Trump was alive and in attendance because of divine intervention. The president agreed.

“I stand before you in this arena only by the grace of Almighty God,” the president said, noticeably emotional like the delegates surrounding him on the convention floor. Trump told delegates that he shouldn’t be on the stage today, and they responded by drowning him out with chants of “yes you are.”

Trump told the story of that Saturday in Butler, Pennsylvania, where he was “happily” giving a speech. Six minutes into that rally, gunshots came from beyond the crowd, leading Trump to grab his neck before ducking down behind the lectern. Secret Service agents rushed to cover Trump, but within moments he rose, face bloodied, and raised a fist in the air.

“Fight,” he told his fans.

While Trump recounted that story, the crowd broke out into “fight” chants as they had done throughout the week.

After paying tribute to the Lord for sparing his life, Trump led a moment of silence for former fire chief Corey Comperatore, who was fatally shot while attending the rally. Rolling out Comperatore’s firefighter jacket and helmet, Trump kissed the uniform and saluted the crowd.

The former president explained that more than $6 million had been raised for Comperatore’s family in the wake of his death, and that he would be donating $1 million himself.

From there, Trump used the tragedy to emphasize the political moment and call for not just a unified party, but a unified country.

“Our resolve is undoubted and our purpose is unchanged to deliver a government that serves the American people better than ever before,” Trump proclaimed. “Nothing will stop being in this vision because our vision is righteous and our thoughts pure, no matter what obstacle comes our way. We will not fret, we will not bend, we will not back down and I will never stop fighting for you, your family and our magnificent country.”

The president made a point to keep President Joe Biden’s name out of his speech, only mentioning the 81-year-old once before pledging to not do so again.

“I’m not going to use that name again,” Trump said.

Instead, Trump compared his record to Biden’s without mentioning the administration by name, and stacking statistics against each other, touting his border policy initiatives, the economy and crime rates in a lengthy speech. Prior to the former president taking the stage, a video played of former President Ronald Reagan, reading his famous “are you better off today than you were four years ago” line, a theme that carried similarly throughout Trump’s speech.

The president also used moments in his speech to outline actions he plans to take in his administration, adding that he will conduct “the largest deportation” operation ever if elected again.

And so he did. A reflective and calm Trump closed out the RNC convention on Thursday, embracing unity and compassion during his emotional address.

All throughout the weekend, attendees, delegates and speakers remarked how Trump was alive and in attendance because of divine intervention. The president agreed.

“I stand before you in this arena only by the grace of Almighty God,” the president said, noticeably emotional like the delegates surrounding him on the convention floor. Trump told delegates that he shouldn’t be on the stage today, and they responded by drowning him out with chants of “yes you are.”

Trump told the story of that Saturday in Butler, Pennsylvania, where he was “happily” giving a speech. Six minutes into that rally, gunshots came from beyond the crowd, leading Trump to grab his neck before ducking down behind the lectern. Secret Service agents rushed to cover Trump, but within moments he rose, face bloodied, and raised a fist in the air.

“Fight,” he told his fans.

While Trump recounted that story, the crowd broke out into “fight” chants as they had done throughout the week.

After paying tribute to the Lord for sparing his life, Trump led a moment of silence for former fire chief Corey Comperatore, who was fatally shot while attending the rally. Rolling out Comperatore’s firefighter jacket and helmet, Trump kissed the uniform and saluted the crowd.

Tragically, the shooter claimed the life of one of our fellow Americans, Corey Comperatore, and seriously wounded two other great warriors, David Dutch and James Copenhaver.

The former president explained that more than $6 million had been raised for Comperatore’s family in the wake of his death, and that he would be donating $1 million himself.

From there, Trump used the tragedy to emphasize the political moment and call for not just a unified party, but a unified country.

“Our resolve is undoubted and our purpose is unchanged to deliver a government that serves the American people better than ever before,” Trump proclaimed. “Nothing will stop being in this vision because our vision is righteous and our thoughts pure, no matter what obstacle comes our way. We will not fret, we will not bend, we will not back down and I will never stop fighting for you, your family and our magnificent country.”

The president made a point to keep President Joe Biden’s name out of his speech, only mentioning the 81-year-old once before pledging to not do so again.

“I’m not going to use that name again,” Trump said.

Instead, Trump compared his record to Biden’s without mentioning the administration by name, and stacking statistics against each other, touting his border policy initiatives, the economy and crime rates in a lengthy speech. Prior to the former president taking the stage, a video played of former President Ronald Reagan, reading his famous “are you better off today than you were four years ago” line, a theme that carried similarly throughout Trump’s speech.

The president also used moments in his speech to outline actions he plans to take in his administration, adding that he will conduct “the largest deportation” operation ever if elected again.
A firefighter jacket with the name Comperatore is displayed on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention at the Fiserv Forum on July 18, 2024 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Delegates, politicians, and the Republican faithful are in Milwaukee for the annual convention, concluding with former President Donald Trump accepting his party’s presidential nomination. The RNC takes place from July 15-18.

VDH: “The Biden Titanic”

Geller Report - Thu, 07/18/2024 - 14:00

Biden is a vassal. The Democrat party is wholly responsible for the collapse of the country.

The Biden Titanic

By: Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness, July 15, 2024:

Joe Biden’s escalating dementia and the long media-political conspiracy to hide his senility from the public are the least of the Democrats’ current problems.

Biden’s track record as president may be more concerning than his cognitive decline. He has literally destroyed the U.S. border, deliberately allowing the entry of more than 10 million illegal aliens. His callous handlers’ agenda was to import abjectly poor constituencies in need of vast government services without regard for the current struggles of a battered American middle class and poor.

The widespread poverty of a vast new cohort of illegal immigrants could serve as indictments of a “racist,” “unequal,” and “unfair” America—as if the residents of East Palestine, Ohio or inner-city Chicago had anything to do with the centuries-long corruption and oppression of Mexico and Latin America that daily drives thousands of their own poorest citizens northwards to a society founded on very different ideas than those of their homelands.

Note that the left, neither in Mexico nor in America, never asks why millions of these impoverished people prefer to break into a supposedly racist America. Much less do they even distinguish those principles and values that once made America prosperous, free, and secure from their antitheses that have sadly made much of Latin America mostly poor, without freedom, and insecure.

Biden inherited near-zero real interest rates and inflation at 1.4 percent. Almost immediately, in nihilistic fashion, Biden did to a sound economy what he had done to a secure border. So, he recklessly printed money at a time of spiraling, quarantine-ending demand and supply chain disruption. Middle-class wages never caught up with Biden’s inflation, as prices for key staples are nearly 30 percent higher than when he took office.

The cost of servicing the ballooning national debt at high interest is now nearly $1 trillion per year. The world abroad is aflame, lit by Biden’s inexplicable withdrawal from Kabul, his mixed signals to Vladimir Putin on the eve of his invasion of Ukraine, his deliberate alienation of Israel, his appeasement of Iran and China, and his cuts in the defense budget, coupled with his woke war on mythical “racists” in the military.

Energy prices soared, even as Biden’s green agenda proved unworkable and prompted draining the strategic petroleum reserve and begging foreign oil despots before key elections. The “unifier” Biden by design needlessly alienated nearly half the country, and in his debate, he reiterated why Trump supporters do not deserve his concern. And more ominously and recently, Biden grossly told hundreds of his donors that “it’s time to put Trump in a bullseye”—just days before the attempt on Trump’s life.

The greatest absurdity of the Biden White House is the gaslighting talk of Biden’s “achievements.” Biden’s actions over the last four years are not offsets for his senility that warrant his continuance in office, but again, sadly, they serve as force multipliers, furthering claims of his dementia and for his removal.

Joe Biden is not just non compos mentis and in a sane world, he would be subject to 25th Amendment removal. He also increasingly seems unpleasant and obnoxious, if not sometimes simply weird. To achieve momentary clarity, Biden either shouts at his audience or stoops over and whispers in an eerie fashion.

He insults reporters and his own staff. Every few sentences, without warning, he begins screaming. His face is fixed in a permanent, angry contortion. As a result, the public sees their president as an off-putting, angry old man—and in his selfish dotage, an increasingly unsympathetic one. Even after more than 40 months of media hagiography, Joe Biden still cannot poll over a 40 percent approval rating, given that his rudeness is fueled further by the day due to escalating mental confusion.

Biden is, to be candid, a serial prevaricator. It is not just his ad nauseam repetition of Trump’s supposed slurs—the Charlottesville “both sides” lie, the “suckers” lie, or the “bloodbath” lie. He continues to peddle absolute falsehoods like the mythical nine-percent inflation he inherited and Trump’s supposed intention to ban all abortions, or his whopper that after welcoming in 10 million illegal aliens, Biden would have had a closed, secure border if not for those selfish Republicans who, for some reason, did not trust his ridiculous eleventh-hour, election-timed immigration proposal.

When he hammers Trump as a “convicted felon,” Biden has no clue that a majority of Americans equate that charge with Biden’s own warped lawfare assault on ancient customs, as well as a reminder that his now closest advisor is likewise a “convicted felon.”

When Biden rants near daily about the rich “paying their fair share,” he reminds us that his son is also facing federal tax evasion charges for unreported foreign income in the millions of dollars and that as soon as Biden himself leaves office, as a recipient of the same foreign cash, he may find himself in the same legal jeopardy. So, to use a Bidenism, “how dare he” accuse affluent Americans of the very crimes that his own family is knee deep in?

Biden’s prefaces of “no lie,” “here’s the deal,” “no kidding,” and “no joke” are little more than tics that forewarn us of complete fabrications about to follow, from the ridiculous story of an uncle supposedly eaten by New Guinea cannibals to his supposed heroics during the Civil Rights movement and his near childhood adoption by various minority communities.

UNC fraternity brothers who held U.S. flag during campus protests speak at Republican National Convention

By ABC News, July 18th, 2024

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WTVD) — Some North Carolinians will take the stage at the Republican National Convention next week.

The UNC-Chapel Hill fraternity brothers — who went viral after holding up the American flag during a pro-Palestine campus demonstration — are among the scheduled speakers at the convention, an announcement from former President Donald Trump’s campaign said.

American Muslims for Palestine Ordered To Turn Over Damaging Donor Documents in Virginia Terror Financing Probe

American Muslims for Palestine Ordered To Turn Over Potentially Damaging Donor Documents in Virginia Terror Financing Probe

By: Adam Kredo, WFB, July 16, 2024

RICHMOND, Va.— A Virginia judge on Tuesday ordered American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), a prominent anti-Israel advocacy group, to disclose its funding channels as part of an investigation by Republican attorney general Jason Miyares into allegations of terrorism financing.

AMP, a nonprofit group that is driving anti-Israel protests across the country, will now have to provide Miyares with access to its donor records and funding streams, which the state argues could show evidence that the U.S.-based organization is providing material support to overseas terrorist groups.

The case pivots around AMP’s failure for seven years to properly file basic tax forms allowing it to solicit donations in Virginia. Miyares used this lapse to initiate a wide ranging investigation into AMP, alleging in an October 2023 press statement that the group “may have used funds raised for impermissible purposes under state law, including benefitting or providing support to terrorist organizations.”

The judge in Richmond’s circuit court agreed with the state’s arguments, saying that Miyares “acted in good faith” when he requested AMP’s financials and that the ask “was entirely in [his] statutory authority” to ensure the group is complying with state laws that bar support to terror groups and their affiliates. The ruling also noted AMP’s admittance that it failed to file the proper paperwork, though the organization said it has since rectified what it called an unintentional oversight.

The decision sets the stage for Miyares to obtain potentially years’ worth of funding documents, including its donors and transaction records. The case has garnered national attention due to AMP’s status as one of the country’s leading anti-Israel forces, responsible for a wave of anti-Semitic protests on college campuses that have featured violence and vocal support for Hamas’s Oct. 7 massacre.

The case is also certain to increase public pressure on AMP as congressional Republicans probe the group’s funding streams for terrorism financing. AMP is also being sued by Israeli terror victims who allege the group and its allies serve “as collaborators and propagandists for Hamas.”

Miyares touted the court’s decision in a press release, saying it affirms his office’s “jurisdiction to investigate possible violations of the Commonwealth’s charitable registration and solicitation law.”

“I am pleased with the Court’s decision,” Miyares told the Washington Free Beacon.

In asking to have the case dismissed, AMP lawyer Christina Jump said the nonprofit group is now “in full compliance with Virginia law” and that Miyares’s broad request for donor documents violates the First Amendment. Jump describes the state’s case as “wide ranging and inflammatory,” arguing that “there is no evidence” to indicate any financial support to terrorist groups abroad.

“The attorney general doesn’t have free reign to seek everything and anything it wants,” Jump said, adding that AMP is happy to provide limited records related to its initial failure to properly register as an active nonprofit. “There is simply no validity to what the attorney general seeks here.”

“Allegations from others” about AMP’s activities, Jump added, “doesn’t show that AMP has done anything inappropriate.”

First Millennial on Major Presidential Ticket Could Shift More Young Men to the Right

Pro-family message may resonate with young voters who are increasingly unlikely to own a home, afford children, or attain financial stability.

By: Matthew Rice, NY Sun, July 16, 202416:23:06 pm

MILWAUKEE — Senator Vance, the first millennial to run on a major party’s presidential ticket, could help accelerate the rapid shift to the right among young men in recent years, especially given his populist bona fides in an America that is increasingly unaffordable for younger generations.

On Monday, in the hours following the announcement that Mr. Vance would be President Trump’s running mate, young men inside the Republican National Convention hall were ecstatic. Three younger men were seen on the convention hall floor looking at their phones and high-fiving shortly after news began to spread that Mr. Vance could be on the ticket.

Later in the day, as Mr. Vance was leaving an interview with Sean Hannity in the Fox News convention booth, a throng of young men in MAGA hats and wearing pro-Trump pins held up their phones and chanted the first initials of the senator’s name, J.D.

Young men of all races have been moving rightward in recent years, and President Biden’s numbers among those under the age of 40 has been especially dismal in some polls. Republicans see an opening with the 39-year-old senator potentially being the frontrunner for the 2028 Republican nomination.

The policy director for the American Principles Project, a Washington-based think tank, Jon Schweppe, tells the Sun that younger voters will be “ecstatic” about the choice of Mr. Vance for vice president.

“He’s going to add so much because Trump’s main message is that he wants to help the forgotten men and women of America. It’s a very populist message and Vance is a great messenger for that. Vance is somebody who I think really understands where the realignment of the GOP is,” Mr. Schweppe said in an interview.

He argues that Mr. Vance’s pro-family message will resonate with those millennial and Generation Z voters who are increasingly unlikely to own a home, afford children, or to attain the kind of financial stability that their parents and grandparents were able to reach.

The “realignment,” Mr. Schweppe says, will be toward those most affected by the despair of joblessness and addiction due to withering economic prospects, and away from the Republicans’ past “focus” on gross domestic product and the stock market.

Mr. Vance has proposed an expanded child tax credit, stronger union worker protections, and a more protectionist trade policy in order to shield heartland families and employees.

At one point, the senator went so far as to say that parents should be granted extra votes in federal elections based on the number of children they have, because they have a greater stake in the future of the country.

“To have somebody who is a populist, who is also socially conservative, but somebody who wants to see the party become more appealing to working-class folks, to have a multiracial working-class majority … I think Vance is the perfect pick,” Mr. Schweppe, who describes his organization as the “NRA for families,” says.

Darren Beattie: Snakes In The GOP That Tried To Sabotage J.D. Vance Now Act Like They Are Friends

RealClear - Wed, 07/17/2024 - 15:00
Revolver News editor Darren Beattie said on Real America's Voice 'War Room' that Trump supporters should be optimistic about J.D. Vance because the Karl Roves, John Boltons, and Lindsey Grahams of the world hate him. "Look at the people who worked so vigorously to bury J.D. Vance's political career, not only for the VP slot, but all the way going back to the Senate," Beattie said. "I mean, the opposition, a lot of people don't, you know, there's a lot in public-facing, but the private facing behind the scenes opposition was absolutely insane going against J.D. and it was coming from the usual suspects." "Lindsey Graham, this is really interesting," Beattie continued. "And it shows what a snake Lindsey Graham is. I think we all know from how he operates, you can kind of intuitively sense how a Graham was working so hard to sabotage J.D., pushing Tim Scott... And then when J.D. got the nod, Lindsey Graham comes out and does this big public statement like they were friends and he was supporting him all along. It gives you a sense of how someone like Lindsey Graham maneuvers. But all the usual suspects, from the John Boltons to the Karl Roves to the Rupert Murdochs absolutely hate J.D. and there are a lot of reasons for that." DARREN BEATTIE, REVOLVER NEWS: The people who watch War Room and read revolver.news, the advantage they have in terms of being on the bleeding edge of political developments is almost unfair. Like when you think about how we wrote a whole thing about Elon taking over Twitter before it was public, he was even interested, to the color revolution series, to the January 6th thing, and then calling for J.D. Vance, explaining why he would be the great choice. We ran this like four months ago, and I think it's a critical piece for people to read if they're not familiar with Vance and who he is. It's up there at revolver.news right now. And yes, as you pointed out, he wasn't always for Trump, but he was for Trump in a deeper sense that, you know, his entry into the political stage is through this book called Hillbilly Elegy. And that book really sort of captured, in a deep sense, the underlying developments going on in the country that helped pave the way for the success of the Trump movement, the America First movement, the movement that was concerned with fixing our trade deals, fixing our immigration problems, fixing our foreign policy problems. J.D. grew up and lived amongst the very communities that were sold out and destroyed by our corrupt elite. And so even back when he was not the biggest Trump supporter, he was on this deeper sort of sense of ideological affinity. He was in tune and resonated with the underlying currents responsible for the America First movement that Trump led. And for that reason, I think it was almost inevitable that once, you know, you cut through the media lies, J.D. would be one of Trump's biggest supporters as he's become and remains to this day. And so I think there's all this talk, you know, I've been one to really dump on this concept of Trumpism after Trump because it's constantly used by people who don't understand the unique importance of Trump's style of leadership and really just want to undermine everything Trump stands for. But I think it's important to have someone who embodies at a core level, both in the brain and sort of in the biography, the underlying logic and momentum behind Trump's victory in 2016. And so I feel good that Trump picks someone who embodies that legacy and who can fulfill that legacy in his role as vice president and then possibly beyond in the future. It's smart from a kind of, I guess, you know, it's not narrow, but it's still important to win the election. Trump's a winner. He cares about winning. Vance has won. So there are a lot of sort of electoral advantages in terms of 2024 race. But I'm more pleased and optimistic about the longer term advantages of having someone. HOST: And we should be optimistic too, I think, when you see where the opposition has been mounted from, obviously, John Bolton, Karl Rove, Rupert Murdoch. Darren, I'm curious. There's obviously been a lot of talk how, you know, President Trump's VP pick, right, it's sort of assassination insurance, although that comment was made before what happened on Saturday. But convince the Warren posse, if you think it is the case, that J.D. Vance really is a solid pick in that regard and that he is similarly loathed and feared by the establishment. BEATTIE: Well, on that point, you don't require convincing from me. It's only necessary, as you were pointing out earlier, look at the people who worked so vigorously to bury J.D. Vance's political career, not only for the VP slot, but all the way going back to the Senate. I mean, the opposition, a lot of people don't, you know, there's a lot in public facing, but the private facing behind the scenes opposition was absolutely insane going against J.D. and it was coming from the usual suspects. Huge push by Rupert Murdoch. Rupert Murdoch had a huge push against Vance. Lindsey Graham, you know, this is really interesting. And it shows what a snake Lindsey Graham is. I think we all know from how he operates, you can kind of intuitively sense how a Graham was working so hard to sabotage J.D., pushing Tim Scott. Thank God Trump didn't pick Tim Scott. Pushing Tim Scott so hard and pushing others. And then when J.D. got the nod, Lindsey Graham comes out and does this big public statement like they were friends and he was supporting him all along. It gives you a sense of how someone like Lindsey Graham maneuvers. But all the usual suspects, from the John Boltons to the Karl Roves to the Rupert Murdochs absolutely hate J.D. and there are a lot of reasons for that. One of the big reasons is that he doesn't want to get us involved in foreign wars. He doesn't want to take your taxpayer money and dump it into the coffers of corrupt oligarchs in Ukraine just to prolong a war and the deaths of innocent people for no benefit to American interests. He's been against that. He's been one of the stalwarts in the Senate for his time there. So I'd say the people who hate this country, they are stupid in many ways, but they're not stupid in the sense that they don't understand who would benefit them and who wouldn't benefit them. And they clearly understood that J.D. elevated to a position of vice president would not benefit the crooks and the snakes that have run this country into the ground.

Biden Goes Full-On Communist with National Rent Control

Geller Report - Wed, 07/17/2024 - 14:30

The mask is off.

Texans for Fiscal Responsibility:

“Bidenomics” is nothing new. It is simply repackaged big-government communism, inspired by Karl Marx—but with a new name and face.

Just consider some of the main policy “achievements” of the Biden administration. It is full of spending increases and socialist policies. Billions in direct payments to individuals and businesses, $65 billion for businesses to expand broadband, $52 billion in corporate welfare for computer chip companies, billions in expanding socialized medicine, $80 billion for the IRS, and more green-energy incentives at the expense of taxpayers.

Major federal legislation passed under the leadership of Joe Biden—including the American Rescue Plan Act, the Federal Infrastructure bill, the CHIPS Act, and the spuriously named “Inflation Reduction Act”—have resulted in more than $4.12 TRILLION in new federal spending.

What has all of this resulted in? Nearly $33 trillion in national debt, which is roughly $100,000 owed per person in the United States (up from $27 trillion in January 2021 when Biden took office). It has also resulted in record levels of inflation, near-zero rises in wages when accounting for inflation, and a climate that continues to grow more hostile to American families and small businesses.

And that is only the beginning.

All these communist-like policies, and more, have been tried before (think Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela). They have always failed, and they will fail here too. They are explicitly designed to ensure big government is constantly intervening and controlling every aspect of the economy, private business, and American families—all at taxpayers’ expense.

Biden Wants National Rent Control

By: Newsmax, 16 July 2024:

President Joe Biden called on Congress Tuesday to pass legislation that would compel corporate owners of rental housing units to cap annual rent increases at 5% or lose some tax benefits.

The White House also unveiled efforts to use public land for as many as 15,000 affordable housing units in Nevada and to boost neighborhoods in Las Vegas and elsewhere.

Biden, a Democrat, is traveling in Nevada, a political swing state that he hopes to win in the Nov. 5 election against Republican Donald Trump.

“Rent is too high and buying a home is out of reach for too many working families and young Americans, after decades of failure to build enough homes. I’m determined to turn that around,” Biden said in a statement.

FOX News contributor and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich talked to host Sean Hannity about President Biden's reaction to the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump: "I think that to take Joe Biden seriously is to misunderstand the whole nature of the Biden administration.

Lara Trump: You May Not Like Everything He Tweeted, But You Cannot Deny Things Were Better When Trump Was In Office

RealClear - Wed, 07/17/2024 - 04:11
RNC co-chair Lara Trump delivers the keynote address at the second night of the Republican National Convention. LARA TRUMP, RNC CO-CHAIR: I don't feel like I actually have to ask this question, but is anybody in this room ready to send Donald Trump back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? Well, it may not be a surprise that I actually had a very different speech that I was prepared to give up here tonight. That all changed at 6-11 on Saturday evening. Nothing prepares you for a moment like that. Our families faced our fair share of death threats, mysterious powders sent to our homes, tasteless and violent comments directed towards us on social media, but none of that prepares you as a daughter-in-law to watch in real time someone try to kill a person you love. None of that prepares you as a mother to quickly reach for the remote and turn your young children away from the screen so that they're not witness to something that scars the memory of their grandpa for the rest of their lives. The prayers and well wishes we've received over the last 72 hours have been overwhelming, to say the least. And my heart goes out to the family who lost a husband and a father because of this senseless act. All of you here tonight and watching at home mean the world to all of us in the Trump family. If Donald Trump has shown us anything, it's that when it feels impossible to keep going, those are the times we must keep going. I don't know how many people here or watching at home have ever been to a Trump rally, but if you've never been, let me tell you about them. Oh, some of you have been. Regardless of how the media have painted these rallies, you would be hard pressed to find and to join a happier group of people coming together over their love for the greatest country on earth, the United States of America. I dare anyone trying to leave a Trump rally without leaving with some new friends. You always make friends at a Trump rally, right? Veterans, teachers, blue-collar workers, white-collar workers, active-duty military, police officers, firefighters, small business owners, Latino supporters, Christian supporters, Jewish supporters, black supporters, white supporters, Asian supporters, gay supporters, Republicans, Independents, and yes, even Democrats. At a Trump rally, you're not viewed as your profession, your religion, or the color of your skin. You're viewed as one thing. An American. Last Saturday was a jarring reminder that we, as Americans, must always remember, there is more that unites us than divides us. We all want this country to be great, even if we don't always agree on the best way of doing that. And with every bone in my body, I can tell you that all Donald Trump wants to do, and has ever wanted to do, is make this country great again for all of us. Proverbs 28 reads, The wicked flee, though no one pursues. But the righteous are as bold as a lion. And that truly epitomizes Donald Trump. He is a lion. He is bold, he is strong, he is fearless, and he is exactly what this country needs right now. Let's not forget what life actually looked like under President Donald Trump. Trade deals across the world that benefited our economy, allied countries paying their fair share, a safe and secure southern border, record low unemployment rates for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans and women, record investment in historically black colleges and universities, the creation of the United States Space Force, the most comprehensive prison reform in decades. How about the peace agreements in the Middle East that they said would never happen? The largest tax cuts in American history, our energy independence, massive amounts of red tape cut, and no new wars when Donald J. Trump was president. Maybe, most importantly though, you could actually feel it in your everyday life. Now you didn't have to love everything that he tweeted, but you cannot deny you were better off when Donald Trump was in office. Americans were finally able to start saving money, home prices were affordable, and gas hit a low of $1.87 a gallon. As I speak here tonight, many of our fellow Americans don't know how they'll pay for their next trip to the grocery store, new clothes for their children, or this month's rent. Many of our fellow Americans worry that we are on the verge of a major terror attack here on American soil. Many of our fellow Americans don't think their own children will be able to establish a better life than they themselves currently have. Many of our fellow Americans are right now sitting and wondering how on earth this country could have moved in the wrong direction and so quickly. The Democrats and the media know that they cannot convince you, the American people, that your life is better off now, because it's not. So what will they do? They'll try to sell you on some outrageous narrative about the terrible things that Donald Trump will do if he becomes president. But you don't have to imagine what it would be like. All you have to do is remember what it was like. I know... Oh, yeah. I know what you hear out there about Donald Trump. I know what you read, what the media tells you, and what out-of-touch celebrities on the left say about this man. But when I look at Donald Trump, I see a wonderful father, father-in-law, and, of course, grandfather to my two young children, Luke and Carolina. I know that I'm lucky enough to get to call him my father-in-law and see him a little differently than all of you. But it's through that lens that I sometimes wish more people could see him. This is a man who has sacrificed for his family. And a man who has truly sacrificed for his country. Donald Trump didn't need to run for president for fame or money. Trust me, we all know he already had plenty of that. I'll tell you why he did it, and why he continues on, even in the face of the unthinkable. Because he loves this country. He did it for his grandchildren, for your children and grandchildren, and for the generations to come. I have seen this man dragged through hell and back, in and out of courtrooms, indictments, impeachments, mug shots, and even an assassination attempt. And yet, he has never backed down. USA! USA! USA! I'll never forget watching my two children run up to him with their drawings and hugs for grandpa just moments before he took the elevator down in Trump Tower to address the media the day after his wrongful conviction. Despite everything else he had going on, he had no other focus in the entire world. Just a man relishing time with his grandchildren. It's a side of Donald Trump that not enough people get to see. Maybe you got to see a side of Donald Trump on Saturday that you were not sure existed, until you saw it with your own eyes. Martin Luther King Jr. once famously said, the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience and comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. There's no doubt that Saturday was one of the most frightening moments of my father-in-law's life. Millimeters separated him from life and certain death. And yet, it was in the midst of it all, as he was jostled offstage by Secret Service, that he knew how defining that moment would be for our country. And he hoisted his fist in the air. It was not just for the audience at the rally, not just for his supporters tuning in, but for all of America. And as a signal to the world that no matter what, America will always prevail. Though it's been strained and attacked, no enemy, no force, not even a bullet is strong enough to break our American grit and our American soul. We are the country whose founders gave their fortunes, freedoms, and lives to pursue the dream of a free society. We are the country of Thomas Edison, Susan B. Anthony, Henry Ford, and Harriet Tubman. We are the country who fought and won two World Wars. And we are the country who always rises to meet the moment, no matter how insurmountable the task. And in that split second on Saturday, Donald Trump reminded us all of that very history and who we are at our core as a nation. That is the Donald Trump that I know. He is an American, an American who conquered the business world, an American who made himself a household name, an American who was beloved by politicians and fellow celebrities for decades until he ran for office with an R next to his name, an American whom even Barack Obama admits people consider the American Dream. And instead of sailing off into the sunset after an illustrious real estate and television career, he decided to give back. He decided to bring some of the things that had made him so successful in life to all of you in order to improve the lives of all Americans, black, white, brown, gay, straight, all Americans, because that's the man that Donald Trump is. I can tell you that my personal experience with Donald Trump has shown me his heart. There wasn't a second that he made this small-town girl who was way out of her element in New York City feel anything but welcomed and part of the family. And if not for the support and encouragement of my father-in-law, I wouldn't be where I am today. It's been said by many that Donald Trump sees things in people that they don't even recognize in themselves. In 2016, when he asked me to help him win my home state of North Carolina... CHEERING ..I'll be honest, I was terrified. I had no idea how I would make it happen, but he knew I would, and I did. When I was given an opportunity to join a television network as a commentator, it was the push and support of my father-in-law that gave me the confidence to take that job. Always the first one to call or text me after a TV hit and tell me, great job, keep going. Not bad, right? LAUGHTER Or even a few months ago, when he called and asked me to be the co-chair of our party... CHEERING ..he showed me potential in myself that I couldn't yet see. So tonight, to my father-in-law, I want to say thank you. CHEERING Thank you for your resilience. Thank you for continuing on. Thank you for raising wonderful kids. Thank you for being an amazing grandfather. Thank you for never giving up on me. And thank you for never giving up on our country. CHEERING Tonight, I come to you not as the co-chair of the RNC, not as the daughter-in-law of the candidate. Tonight, I come to you as a mom and as a citizen of this country. For those of you watching who have never voted for Donald Trump, I know what the media and his political opponents have tried to tell you about this man. Believe me, I have seen and heard it all. But I have also seen the truth. I am proud to know Donald Trump, to campaign for him, to vote for him and to raise his grandchildren. CHEERING He will do what is necessary to protect you, protect your family and protect this country. Because Donald Trump wants us all to be successful, to be safe, to be happy, to be strong and to be great again. CHEERING Tonight, I'm asking you to vote. Not for the Donald Trump you see flashed on your TV every day, splashed across the headlines. Tonight, I'm asking you to vote for the Donald Trump that Luke and Carolina call Grandpa. I'm asking you to vote for the Donald Trump that my husband Eric calls Dad. I'm asking you to vote for the Donald Trump that I call my father-in-law. I'm asking you to vote for the Donald Trump who can and will make America great once again for all of us. Thank you. God bless you. God bless the United States of America. We love you.

Anne Funder, Mother Of Fentanyl Victim at RNC: My Son's Death Is The Result Of "The Tragic Reality Of Open Borders"

RealClear - Wed, 07/17/2024 - 03:53
Anne Funder, a mother of four children, received a standing ovation during her emotional speech about her 15-year-old son's death from a fentanyl overdose in Southern California in 2022, which she described as "the tragic reality of open borders." ANNE FUNDNER: Hi, my name is Anne Funder, and I am the wife and mother of four children. I'm standing here today to share the tragic reality of open borders. I'm here to share the story of my firstborn son, my everything, my Weston. My family and I were living in Southern California when President Biden took office and opened our borders. My Weston was 15. He was an amazing big brother to his three younger siblings. Weston attended church twice a week, played football and hockey, and he loved to surf. He had a big heart, and he lived to make people laugh. He had so many good friends. And I was always vigilant to be the best mother that I could be. I was room mom, school ambassador. And I attended all of his sports. We had family dinners and barbecues at the beach. And like most teenagers, Weston wanted to fit in. And in a moment of peer pressure, he tried something that someone gave to him, and it took my baby's life. We did everything right. I had those conversations with him, and fentanyl still found my son. And on February 27th, 2022, our lives were shattered, and our baby was gone. This was not an overdose. It was a poisoning. His whole future, everything we ever wanted for him, was ripped away in an instant. And Joe Biden does nothing. I hold Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, the borders are, what a joke, and Gavin Newsom, and every Democrat who supports open borders responsible for the death of my son. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And the tens of thousands of American innocent children. For that alone, they should be voted out of office. Joe must go. Yes, he must. Joe must go. We have seen the highest number of fentanyl deaths during the Biden-Harris administration, and fentanyl is now the number one killer of Americans ages 18 to 45, and it is quickly becoming the leading cause of death for teens with 14 and under being the fastest-growing demographic. We need President Trump back in office. We need a president who will seal the border, aggressively prosecute drug dealers, and stop communist China from poisoning our children. This is not a red or blue issue. This is a red, white, and blue issue. Fentanyl doesn't care if you're black or white. It does not discriminate. This is an American issue. We need a president who will call the drug cartels what they are, terrorist organizations. This fight is not for me. My son is gone. This fight is for your children. We owe it to our children to elect a president who will win the war against fentanyl once and for all. It's too late for my son, Weston. Say his name, Joe Biden. Weston. Thank you. Thank you. But we can change this for your children. We need President Trump back to save the lives of our kids. Thank you. Thank you. God bless America.

Rubio at RNC: Putting Americans First Must Be What This Election Is About

RealClear - Wed, 07/17/2024 - 03:40
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) addresses the 2024 Republican National Convention in Milwaukee. SEN. MARCO RUBIO (R-FL): Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, don't say polo, don't say polo. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The last few days remind us that the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind is in the hands of God. We were brought to the precipice of the abyss, and by the hand of God, reminded of what truly matters in our lives and in our country. This thing we do called politics, it matters, it's not unimportant, but it is our people who must always matter the most in everything we do. By giving voice to everyday Americans, President Trump has not just transformed our party, he has inspired a movement. A movement of the people who grow our food and drive our trucks, the people who make our cars and build our homes, the people whose taxes fund our government and whose children fight our wars. Americans like Cory Comparatore, he was a former fire chief and a loving husband, he was described as the best dad a girl could ever ask for, as a man of God who loved Jesus fiercely and looked after members of his church. Cory was one of the millions of everyday Americans who make our country great. He wasn't rich, he wasn't famous, and the only reason why we know his name and story now is because last Saturday he shielded his wife and daughter from an assassin's bullet and lost his life the way he lived it, a hero. For those still wondering who are in the press and many watching at home, these are the Americans who wear the red hats and wait for hours under a blazing sun to hear Trump speak. And what they want, what they ask for, it is not hateful or extreme. What they want is good jobs and lower prices. They want borders that are secure and for those who come here to do so legally. They want to be safe from criminals and from terrorists. And they want for our leaders to care more about our problems here at home than about the problems of other countries far away. There is absolutely nothing dangerous or anything divisive about putting Americans first. Those who are offended, anyone who is offended about putting America first has forgotten what American is and what American means. American isn't the color of our skin or our ethnicity. Americans are people as diverse as humanity itself. But out of many, we are one. Because as the life story of our next Vice President, J.D. Vance, reminds us, we are all descendants of ordinary people who achieved extraordinary things. Who do we come from? We come from pioneers who ventured west to chase their dreams. And slaves who overcame bondage to claim their right to the promise of America. We come from exiles who fled tyranny in search of freedom. And of immigrants who left behind all they had and knew because they could not be or achieve God's purpose for their life in the nation of their birth. That is an American. And putting Americans first must be what this election is about. When President Trump was in the White House, Americans had more money and lower prices. Our borders were secure and our laws were enforced. Iran was broke. The Taliban stopped killing Americans. And Putin didn't invade anyone. Now under Biden, high prices devour paychecks. Criminals and drugs are allowed to flood into our country and terrorize our people. And Iran has money to support terrorists. The Taliban humiliated us in Afghanistan. And not one, but two major wars have broken out. My fellow Americans, the only way to make America wealthy and safe and strong again is to make Donald J. Trump our president again. Our country has been injured. Injured by the bad decisions of weak leaders. But now, though bloodied by our wounds, we must stand up and we must fight. Fight not with violence or destruction, but with our voices and our votes. Fight not against each other, but for the hopes and dreams we share in common and make us one. And fight for an America where we are safe from those who seek to harm us on our streets and from abroad. And we will not be alone in this fight. For leading us in this fight will be a man who, although wounded and facing danger, he stood up and raised his fist and reminded us that our people and our country are always worth fighting for. It is time. It is time to put our country and our people first again. And if we do, together we will make our people wealthy again. If we do, together we will make our country safe again. Together we will make Donald Trump our president again. And together, we will not just make America great again. We will make America greater than it has ever been. Thank you. God bless you.
