Biden Rape Charges Hurting Democrats In U.S. Senate Races

All across the country Democrats are turning on Joe Biden and backing a probe into Tara Reade’s rape charges, much to the consternation of the Biden campaign. Though some are sticking with Biden and some are trying to cut the baby in half.

Because Democrat Senate hopefuls are all over the road on their party’s de facto nominee, it is hurting their party unity and thus their races all over the nation. Here are some examples of how the Reade charges are playing out. We lead off with Mitch McConnell setting the stage.

Kentucky: “Well, at the very least it’s pretty obvious that the same people who were outraged about allegations — unproven allegations against Justice Kavanaugh when he was in high school — seemed to have little or no interest, or certainly not as much interest, in suggestions of improper behavior by an adult who was in the Senate,” said GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

“I was asked earlier today about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and I answered (that she would have voted to confirm) based upon his qualifications to be on the Supreme Court,” Amy McGrath said. She is the Democrat up against McConnell. First she was for Kavanaugh, knowing that would play in red state Kentucky. Then she turned tail after leftist pressure and said this, “But upon further reflection and further understanding of his record, I would have voted no.” Ducked the issue on Reade altogether.

Maine: “At the time of his confirmation, there was plenty of evidence that put into question Brett Kavanaugh’s fitness for the Supreme Court,” Democrat Sara Gideon said.

Gideon is challenging GOP incumbent Senator Susan Collins. “Senators Collins cast a critical vote to confirm him anyway, and she said she doesn’t regret it.” Gideon has dodged all comment on the Reade story.

“Principles like the presumption of innocence, fairness, and due process always bear on my thinking in evaluating such an allegation,” Collins said. “Ms. Reade should be treated with respect and have a chance to tell her story. I served with Joe Biden in the Senate, and I have respect for his service to our country.” Cautious and down the middle. Very Susan Collins.

Georgia: “The law actually has a system for this that can be used in the political and civic world as well, and that is when a woman makes an allegation she makes a prima facie statement and it is to be believed, and then it is to be rebutted by the accused and then the burden’s on the woman to state her case,” Teresa Tomlinson said. She is in the Democrat primary to take on GOP Senator David Perdue (R-GA) this fall. She tries to go down the middle. Her legal mumbo jumbo fails.

“Any allegation of sexual assault needs to be taken seriously. In a supercharged political environment, we need to look carefully. And only Vice President Biden and the accuser really know what happened,” Jon Ossoff said. He is also in that primary. A little bit better than Tomlinson. But still not good enough to escape charges of Democrat hypocrisy.

“These accusations deserve to be heard in full and the voters deserve a full investigation of what happened,” Sarah Riggs Amico said. “And at the same time Joe Biden does deserve due process.” Still better and smarter, this time. But that wasn’t her attitude on Brett Kavanaugh.

“I will never be silent when it comes to fighting for what’s right. That’s why I’m offering my unwavering support to those who are coming forward and joining others calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment because this is no time for half measures, especially when it comes to our values. It is clear that Senate Republicans, including Senator David Perdue, put partisan politics ahead of good judgment by confirming Kavanaugh without a thorough investigation,” said Amico during the Kavanaugh hearings. Even later, she wasn’t so evenhanded about Kavanaugh.

All over the road. It will cost them, and Biden, in the fall.

Judd Apatow Outrageously Says President Trump ‘Normalized Being Insane’

Hollywood director Judd Apatow launched yet another ridiculously outrageous attack on President Donald Trump, this time blaming the tens of thousands of deaths from coronavirus on him and all Republicans.

“He normalized being insane but we will vote Trump and all Republicans out in November,” the “40-Year-Old Virgin” director tweeted on Monday. “They care more about their power than helping people. None stand up and say the President is inept and that is a dereliction of duty. As a party they are responsible for thousands of deaths.”

Apatow is one of many Hollywood stars who have been blaming COVID-19 deaths on Trump and his fellow Republicans despite the fact that the illness originated in China and has killed thousands of people all over the world.

I think [the Senate Majority Leader] and all of these politicians should be prosecuted when this is done for the lies which cost thousands of deaths,” Apatow said after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called out Democrats for focusing on impeachment while Trump was dealing with the threat of coronavirus. “He knows Trump is a con man who lied to everyone to delay bad news and that led to thousands of additional deaths. They are all murderers.”

Apatow has spent years relentlessly attacking Trump in the most obscene ways possible. “He’s a Nazi. He wants no judicial process. He kidnapped children and commits acts of violence for political gain and to support his racist views,” Apatow said of him in 2018. “He admires violent dictators. Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over. Soon we will have proof he is a Nazi supported by the Russians.”

It takes a special level of narcissism to think that directing comedies like “Knocked Up” makes you an expert on politics. Apatow doesn’t realize that the more he tweets about Trump, the more he shows that he’s just another Hollywood elitist who has lost all touch with reality. As President Trump himself would say: SAD!

Ayanna Pressley Compares Trump’s Coronavirus Response To ‘War Crimes’

Ayanna Pressley, Democrat Representative from Massachusettes and proud Squad member, believes President Trump’s response to the coronavirus is “akin to war crimes.”

Pressley made the remarks during a virtual press conference on Facebook, a social media entity that at least pretends they’re cracking down on misinformation.

“As far as I’m concerned what’s happening with this administration, it’s akin to war crimes,” the wildly misinformed congresswoman stated. “Criminal negligence, science denial, a sluggish response.”

Her statement leaves little doubt that the radical left truly does believe that Trump is responsible for the deaths of those who succumbed to a virus that originated in China.

How mind-numbingly low can they possibly sink?

All They Have Is Insane Rhetoric

Pressley went on to suggest now is the time to capitalize on the pandemic and implement their radical agenda.

“We find ourselves in the position of playing catch up in the midst of a pandemic,” she said, seemingly unaware that the curve has been successfully flattened in most parts of the country. “Which is the last place you want to be in the midst of any public health crisis — certainly not a pandemic — is working from behind.”

“And we just have to reject any calls for a return to normal because that normal was what was slowly killing people,” she concluded.

Ignorance Is a Crime

If a sluggish response is ‘akin to a war crime’ then the Democrat party has a lot of blood on their own hands.

While the resistance party was plotting impeachment for months, President Trump was setting up a coronavirus task force, ordering more testing and ventilators, restricting travel from countries known to be battling the virus, and declaring a national emergency.

Well after all of these actions had been taken, Pressley declined to attend Trump’s State of the Union address – in which he warned about the pending coronavirus crisis!

That is negligence.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admitted that the Democrats’ impeachment sham “diverted the attention of the government” away from focusing on important matters at hand.

That didn’t stop the President from saving lives, as Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said the travel ban did.

“One of the things that we did very early and very aggressively, the president put the travel restriction coming from China to the United States and most recently from Europe to the United States,” Fauci said.

Any idea what Pressley and the Democrats were doing then?

They were actively pursuing the ‘No Ban Act‘ which was designed to restrict the President’s authority in implementing new travel bans.

They were trying to prevent the President of the United States from saving lives during a pandemic.

Which of these people sound more like they’ve taken actions “akin to war crimes”?

Judd Apatow Calls For President Trump And Republicans To Be Prosecuted Because ‘They Are All Murderers’

Hollywood writer and director Judd Apatow, who is known for movies like “40 Year-Old Virgin,” just called for President Donald Trump and all Republicans to be arrested and prosecuted because “they are all murderers” who are responsible for “thousands of [coronavirus] deaths.”

Apatow tweeted this in response to comments that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made on Tuesday, when he told “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that efforts made by Democrats to impeach Trump distracted everyone from the impending threat of coronavirus.

“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial,” McConnell said, according to The Hill. “And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment.”

This was enough to “trigger” Apatow, who argued for McConnell and his fellow Republicans to be arrested and prosecuted, although he did not specify exactly for what.

“I think [the Senate Majority Leader] and all of these politicians should be prosecuted when this is done for the lies which cost thousands of deaths,” Apatow wrote. “He knows Trump is a con man who lied to everyone to delay bad news and that led to thousands of additional deaths. They are all murderers.”

This is far from the first time that Apatow has called President Trump a murderer. Last summer, he likened Trump’s skepticism over climate change to him “murdering our children.”

Like many liberals, Apatow has also compared President Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. “He’s a Nazi. He wants no judicial process. He kidnapped children and commits acts of violence for political gain and to support his racist views,” he said back in 2018. “He admires violent dictators. Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over. Soon we will have proof he is a Nazi supported by the Russians.”

There is no limit to what liberals like Apatow will resort to when it comes to bashing Trump. We should be putting any differences aside right now and rallying behind the president while he tries to lead us through this pandemic. But once again, the Left would rather see our country fail than see Trump succeed. As the president himself would say, SAD!

Mitch McConnell Points Finger Of Blame For Coronavirus Crisis Directly At Impeachment Happy Democrats

Senator Mitch McConnell tore into Democrats for distracting lawmakers from being better equipped in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

The Majority Leader pointed out that Congress was still being pulled in the wrong direction by having to focus resources on the impeachment effort heralded by Nancy Pelosi and her resistance minions.

Distraction

McConnell made the comments during a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt.

“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment,” the Kentucky Republican recalled.

Consumed With Impeachment

McConnell’s comments echo those of Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) who said he began studying the coronavirus problem in mid-January.

“I have to tell you that in mid-January and late-January, unfortunately, Washington, especially the Congress was consumed with another matter — you may recall the partisan impeachment of the president,” Cotton explained.

It’s good to hear officials admitting what many supporters of the President have believed for some time – the nation would have been better prepared if lawmakers weren’t distracted by a partisan impeachment sham.

On January 15th, the CDC reported that the coronavirus had arrived in America.

What were Democrats up to? After delaying sending over the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a month, Pelosi was all smiles, gleefully handing out pens while signing her articles of impeachment.

Trump Wasn’t Distracted

While McConnell’s comments were more focused on Congress, one would hardly be off base if they thought President Trump himself may have been distracted by the whole ridiculous resistance affair.

But he wasn’t.

Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson said the President’s early actions were “going to save countless American lives.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, credited Trump’s travel restrictions – implemented in the midst of the impeachment effort – with saving lives.

One of the key actions necessary to control the spread of the virus, Fauci explained, is to “contain the influx of people who are infected coming from the outside.”

In late January, while Democrats were entirely focused on impeachment, President Trump would issue travel restrictions with China, establish the Coronavirus Task Force, and declare coronavirus a public health emergency.

Imagine what could have been done – better planning to respond to the crisis, economic measures to stop job losses – if Democrats focused on America instead of their own political ambitions.

Pelosi And Schumer Play Politics While Americans Die

The Democrats have done a lot of despicable things as of late: The Russian hoax, the Mueller probe, the impeachment scam, trying to socialize our healthcare system (Can you imagine today, if they had been successful?), their open borders policy, and many other travesties too numerous to mention outside of a tome.

But this, this…holding up aid to working families because the Senate economic rescue package does not contain socialist boondoggles, has to be the worst thing they have ever done in modern history.

Fox News reports that GOP senators are expressing outrage on the floor of the Senate: “The country is burning, and your side wants to play political games,” said Senate Majority Whip John Thune, (R-SD). “It is time to get this done. The American people expect us to act, they need action. We need to get this done for the American people. Here we are dilly-dallying around. This bill is about workers, families, people out there hurting economically—we’re in a position to do something about it and it is high time that we did.”

Watch Thune during this crisis. He has long been respected in DC. He could be making a national name for himself.

“Republicans understand that a national crisis calls for urgency and calls for bipartisanship,” GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said. “It’s time for Democrats to stop playing politics and step up to the plate… We’re at war with no ammo. Democrats are talking about this as if it is some juicy political opportunity. This is not a juicy political opportunity… This has got to stop and today’s the day it has to stop. The country is out of time.”

McConnell is right. Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Chuck Schumer (NY) see this as just another chance to fatten the coffers of their pet radical groups and special interests. This while millions could go without jobs and paychecks. They are playing a dangerous game. They will likely lose.

If Dems Get Witnesses, Trump’s Team Should Be Able To Call Their’s Too

According to the Wall Street Journal, Sen. Mitch McConnell has told his constituents that he doesn’t have the votes to block witnesses during President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.

He informed them after Trump’s legal team finished with the countermeasures that they want to show the American people how the Democrat-led House pushed the Articles of Impeachment through the system to hurt Trump’s 2020 chances.

The Democrats will not lose in the respect that they have put out a warning to future presidential candidates and judicial nominees that they will ruin their lives and their families lives for going against them. There is no one but Trump that could have stood up to this kind of punishment and there never will be another.

On the third and final day of presentations by the Trump legal team, lawyers tried to cast doubts on the importance and credibility of allegations by former national security adviser John Bolton about the president’s motives for freezing aid to Ukraine.

But at a meeting of all Republican senators late Tuesday, GOP leaders told their conference that they don’t currently have the votes to prevent witnesses from being called, people familiar with the matter said. Republicans had hoped to wrap up the trial with an acquittal of the president by this week, but Democrats have said he should appear under oath to offer a firsthand account of the president’s motivations for freezing aid to Ukraine—a matter at the heart of the impeachment case.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said the vote total wasn’t where it needed to be on blocking witnesses or documents, these people said. He had a card with “yes,” “no,” and “maybes” marked on it, apparently a whip count, but he didn’t show it to senators.

Using less than half of the 24 hours they were allotted, the president’s lawyers on Tuesday argued that House managers hadn’t established their case that Mr. Trump abused power and obstructed Congress and said the accusations fell short of the threshold needed to remove a president from office, particularly in an election year.

The Republican Senators who are stupid enough to vote for witnesses need to lose their seats for their bad decisions. They are merely liberals disguising themselves as Republicans. Time for pressure on them.

Whatever Trump told Bolton in a conversation should not matter one bit, it is a private conversation, and it is nobody’s business. What matters is that aid was released and that Ukraine’s president said he never was pressured to announce anything. The issue is those weak Republican Senators, just man up or woman up and support the President. All witnesses should have been called in the House, we have seen enough of those idiots Schiff and Nadler, enough already.

IF there were no impeachment hearings, what would the Senate be doing right now? Looking into Biden’s corruption in Burisma? Who are the loudest voices for impeachment? The same people that are caught up in these corrupt foreign deals that begin with Burisma.

The impeachment exists to distract and prevent the prosecution of corrupt politicians like Pelosi, Romney, Schiff, etc. They can’t let the distraction end or it’s the beginning of the end for them. Those that think they have something to fear don’t want the impeachment hearings to end.

You know, when they conduct these polls and tell you that the American people overwhelmingly want witnesses because they want to see a fair trial, what they don’t tell you is the makeup of the people who answered that poll. I bet if they told you the questions (and responses) behind the poll, you would see a lot of Republicans who want witnesses—-witnesses that they believe will fully exonerate Trump.

That’s why I don’t really care if they call witnesses, as long as Trump gets to call all his witnesses and it isn’t all one-sided in favor of the Dems. Of course, if it does turn out to be one-sided, some Republicans are going to have a LOT to answer for…but the bright side is that this will NOT go down as the “fair trial” that the American people wanted.

GOP Senators Plan for Acquittal After Witness Vote – Impeachment End Game in Sight

If the vote to call witnesses fails, Senate GOP leaders might pursue a quick end to the ongoing impeachment trial.

Vote to Acquit Could Come as Early as Friday

Politico reports that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is mulling over using procedural moves to end debate and vote for Trump’s acquittal. It is expected that the vote to call witnesses will fail and Democrats will be unable to introduce more evidence. If that happens, Senator John Barrasso says the vote to acquit could come as early as Friday.

“The question is going to come to ‘Have you heard enough to make a decision or do you want witnesses?’ If people say, ‘We’re ready to vote,’ we’re going to vote right then,” said Barrasso.

RELATED: Report: Mitch McConnell Plans to Acquit Trump on Impeachment Charges

Politico reports, “Barrasso suggested that an acquittal vote could take place as soon as Friday — if senators don’t agree to subpoena additional witnesses or documentary evidence. Under the organizing resolution that controls the proceedings, Democrats could offer additional motions if the Senate votes down deposing additional witnesses — including former national security adviser John Bolton — but Republicans could then move to shut down debate and call for an up-or-down vote on acquittal.”

“We would,” said Sen. Joni Ernst of the quick acquittal vote. “If it fails, no more witnesses, no more documents. Then we would, I would think … I would imagine that then we would roll into that.”

If Democrats were to try to stall, it would be seen as a partisan attempt to hurt Trump. Democrats might want to go ahead and end this fiasco and risk doing any further damage to their party as the 2020 election nears.

Please, Just Stop Already

Senate Democrats are already trying to figure out how to outwit McConnell if Republicans pursue this strategy.

“So the rules would have the vote on the articles come up immediately after a failed vote on witnesses. I think we are exploring what our options would be if we lost that witness vote,” said Sen. Chris Murphy according to Politico. “McConnell I would imagine would go straight [to the acquittal vote]. The rules don’t provide for anything.”

After Trump’s lawyer’s presentation, there are supposed to be 16 hours of questions to the House managers that will no doubt be highly scripted by both sides.

And so on, and so on. Can we just end this already?
