DNC Source Says Biden VP Pick Is Down To Two

A source at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has told LifeZette that the Biden search for a running mate has been narrowed down to two people: Rep. Val Demings of Florida and Rep. Karen Bass of California.

Both are black females, thus keeping with the racial quotas now in place in the deeply racist Democratic Party. An announcement is set to be made within hours, if not tomorrow.

Given Florida is a battleground state, Demings is far and away the best political choice. She presents no worse than your typical Democrat lunatic, gained national attention during the impeachment hearings, and is not prone to public communist statements and enthusiasms. Bass is altogether different.

As chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Bass’ demeanor has been odd of late. The CBC is a hard-left group and has been for some time. But Bass recently broke ranks and did not support the defund the police movement beloved by many members of the CBC. Did she do so to make herself more politically palatable to voters and/or Joe Biden?

But the real interesting move, as hinted above, has been her turnaround on communism and Cuba. As a student radical Bass took a trip to the country in 1970 and came back with nothing but hippy drippy commie praise for the brutal island dictatorship and American foe. She even referred to Castro as “commander in chief” of Florida’s Cuban exile community.

She also called the joyous event of Castro’s demise “a great loss to the Cuban people.” That stuff is, of course, barking loony. But such was her thrall to savage communism that it was her mission to spread the gospel of Marxist glory to this country. But now that power beckons she likely has not changed her views, just what she says in public. Thus, on NBC…

“There were over 100 young people there, and all of us worked on different issues. We had the ability to come home and protest against our own government, but the Cuban people most certainly cannot do that. They couldn’t do it then and they can’t do it now,” said Bass.

If she understood that why did she sing from the Cuban communist hymnal for several decades after she left the country? Why did she mourn Fidel Castro? Why did she tell American citizens of Cuban heritage that Castro was their “commander-in-chief”? Does that sound like someone who has renounced communism?

But the views of both Demings and Bass don’t really matter in the dispositive sense to the national party. Just like Kluxers of old, the party is just interested in one thing: the color of their skin. Yes, the harridans and gorgons who run and staff the Democrats also want to make sure a man is not picked for veep because the poor dears have had to put up with an inherently toxic man at the top of the ticket.

But if they win in November, they probably won’t have to wait long at all until their veep calls their attorney general and says, “Tell me about the 25th Amendment.”

Ted Cruz Mocks Dem Mazie Hirono At Senate Hearing: ‘You’re Welcome To Say Something Negative About Antifa Right Now’

On Tuesday, GOP Senator Ted Cruz wondered if Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono had anything negative to say about the far-left terrorist group antifa at the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing.

Cruz, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, convened the hearing to examine how antifa and other left-wing organizations helped spark and carry out the ongoing riots in major U.S. cities.

Hirono tries to bolt, but Cruz corners her

Before leaving the hearing, Hirono said “we can all agree” on denouncing “violent extremism of all stripes.”

“So to constantly accuse Democrats of not caring about that is … I can only say that you aren’t listening,” Hirono added. “So I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches. Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

Cruz: ‘You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now’

Cruz replied, “I appreciate the, as always the kind and uplifting words of Senator Hirono. And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about antifa, nor has any Democrat here.”

“They instead engage in a political game where they depend — you’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now,” Cruz chided.

“I think that I’ve covered the subject quite well,” Hirono said, leaving the hearing.

“OK, she declined to speak, so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz responded. “I would note also that of the seven Democratic senators who spoke, not one of them apologized for or denounced multiple Democrats calling law enforcement officers Nazis, stormtroopers and Gestapo.”

Cruz nailed Hirono

“To be fair, I have not heard the word Nazi, but stormtrooper was Nancy Pelosi and Gestapo was another Democratic leader,” Cruz said. “That was less than helpful.”

“Across the country, we’re seeing horrific violence, we’re seeing our country torn apart,” Cruz said during an interview with Fox News on Monday.

“Violent anarchists and Marxists are exploiting protests to transform them into riots and direct assaults on the lives and safety of their fellow Americans,” Cruz finished.

The Fatigue Factor: Is America Tired Of Democrat Drama?

President Biden? It’s a sobering thought. Not so much because Joe Biden is a wild-eyed loon. But because he’s using loons to get elected and they will want payment if he pulls it off.

Slim chance, you say. Really? Think again.

Yes, the polls are corrupted and contrived and the media is totally in the tank for the Democrats—as they always are. And it is true, by any logical analysis, that by comparing track records and personalities, the president wins by a wide mile. But those are sensible perspectives and politics is sadly not about sensible anything…but more likely than not about illogical and senseless perception borne of a shallow relationship between the voter and the zeitgeist.

And we can all admit, the spirit of the times is not good. Not since the late 1960s have we had this kind of constant drama of existential controversy. Granted, all of it contrived by the Democrats and the media.

Even before the president took office he was supposedly a Russian pawn. Then there was a special prosecutor. Then impeachment. Now COVID-19 and riots. Have the American people run out of patience with the consistent melodramatic brouhaha? Is there a fatigue factor setting in where a majority of voters in key battleground states are willing to tolerate a Biden presidency to end the never-ending kerfuffle?

Because you know that’s the deal. As soon as Biden would be elected, peace and tranquility would reign supreme. A new golden age, for some people. It’s almost like a tumultuous romantic relationship where you break up with someone you really like because you just can’t handle the drama anymore.

Does the president have an effective defense against this? He should, and it would be law and order. In 1968, under somewhat similar circumstances, Richard Nixon used that theme to great advantage against Democrat Hubert Humphrey and was elected president. But the country is different than it was in the late 60s.

We’ve replaced generations tempered by depression, war, and prosperity with an easily swayed significant portion of the population composed of social media-driven voyeurs and a youth programmed to respond to basic PC stimuli like the most conditioned of Pavlov’s dogs.

Whither the republic? I don’t know. Honestly, I wish that I could, as I did (pre-COVID) confidently predict a Trump victory. There are still idiots out there doing that and by their clueless complacency making a Biden victory much more possible. You know the type. The ones that, despite all evidence to the contrary, actually said “Red Tsunami” in 2018 and meant it. Their confirmation bias does not help the cause.

So we stand on the precipice of the fall campaign season and all bets are off. We can win if the American people still have a modicum of sense. The Left will win if the same people throw in the towel and surrender to the false drama of manufactured negativity Democrats and the hard left have produced —and will continue to produce— until November.

Because it’s not really a Trumpian drama. It’s Democrat drama wrapped up with insincere bows and ribbons by the press to drop on the presidential doorstep. If the American people get that, we’re okay. If not, well, say hello to the 25th Amendment.

Susan Rice: Loss of Over 150,000 American Lives To COVID Is On Donald Trump

Susan Rice, in an interview with the ladies of “The View,” blamed President Donald Trump for the lives lost during the coronavirus pandemic, claiming the previous administration had set him up for success.

That’s right – Rice, whose only notable accomplishment as Barack Obama’s former National Security Adviser was shirking responsibility for a terrorist attack – believes the President must shoulder the blame.

Co-host Sunny Hostin set Rice up with a perfect slow-pitch softball toss, making her line of questioning seem almost assuredly scripted and coordinated.

“Ambassador, I do want to talk to you then about the coronavirus because President Trump has said nobody could have predicted this pandemic,” she said before walking her through the answer.

“But the Obama administration did predict a pandemic and you personally tried to prepare the incoming administration for something just like this, leaving essentially a pandemic playbook that warned of this type of virus happening,” Hostin alleged.

“So who is really to blame for the abysmal response here and the death of 150,000 Americans?”

RELATED: CBS Runs Mail-In Voting Experiment That Goes Horribly Wrong – Trump Wonders If Election Should Be Delayed

Rice Points the Finger

Rice smirked prior to answering as if to say “thanks for the setup.” And then she unloaded on President Trump.

“So the fault here, the tragic loss of 150,000 Americans and counting is on Donald Trump and his gross mishandling of this pandemic,” she claimed. “He said it would go away. He likened it to the flu.”

Nowhere did she mention Andrew Cuomo shoving elderly patients into nursing homes. Nowhere did she mention the Democrat impeachment hoax being conducted while the pandemic was hitting our shores.

She did not blame Nancy Pelosi who encouraged her constituents to tour Chinatown in late February because coronavirus fears were “unwarranted.”

She did not blame Bill de Blasio who told New York City residents to “get out on the town despite coronavirus.”

No, every misstep along the path of a historical pandemic was the President’s and the President’s alone.

Maybe he should have just blamed the whole thing on an obscure YouTube video.

Pandemic For Dummies

Rice, who is desperately angling for the Vice President role for Joe Biden’s campaign, claimed everybody knew the coronavirus pandemic was “inevitable.”

“We prepared the incoming administration with a ‘Pandemic for Dummies’ playbook and a tabletop exercise and so many other briefings,” she said.

The media have been anxiously pushing a narrative that the Trump administration ditched that playbook. The reality, according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, is that the Obama pandemic response plan was inadequate.

“Some have erroneously suggested that the Trump administration threw out the pandemic response playbook left by the Obama-Biden administration,” McEnany told reporters. “What the critics failed to note, however, is that this thin packet of paper was replaced by two detailed, robust pandemic response reports commissioned by the Trump administration.”

Additionally, the Obama administration’s response to the swine flu epidemic in 2009 left the nation with a significant shortage of medical masks, something they never bothered to replenish.

Masks, of course, have been the key to fighting off the spread of this virus.

That year also saw Obama scrap the White House Health and Security Office, which worked on international health issues.

Aside from thinking Trump is the only man responsible for the pandemic, Susan Rice has made other wild claims, including the notion that citing the virus’ origin from China is “shameful” and “designed to stigmatize people of Asian descent.”

As House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz has said: “If lies were music, Susan Rice would be Mozart.”

Michelle and Barack Obama Lob Insults At President Trump In First Podcast

Michelle and Barack Obama took a few childish swipes at President Trump during the former First Lady’s debut podcast on Spotify.

The premiere episode was reportedly designed to be America’s “nationwide reckoning with race” and aims to “show us what’s possible when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to open up, and to focus on what matters most.”

Apparently what ‘matters most’ is taking shots at your successor while never actually having the courage to name them outright.

The Huffington Post reports that Barack at one point discussed how young people’s interest in government is generally limited to when something goes wrong.

“We’re getting a good lesson in that right now,” he derided.

Perhaps he was referring to the Do Nothing Democrats and their impeachment scams, but we suspect this was directed at Trump.

RELATED: Michelle Obama To Launch Podcast That She Says Will Be America’s ‘Nationwide Reckoning With Race’

Suggests Trump Is Ignorant

In another not-so-subtle jab at the President, the pair discussed turning out voters in the next election.

Barack considers himself an optimist, trumpeting “I’m the ‘Yes, We Can!’ man. I am the ‘audacity of hope’ guy.”

“I think where we disagree is usually you [Michelle] just think things just have to get super, super bad before folks figure stuff out,” the former President lamented.

Mrs. Obama replied, “Well, I hope we’re at that point.”

She continued, “Well, as you pointed out as a former president who reads and knows history – Let’s just take moment to pause and think about that – But as that person, you understand the arc of progress.”

A pretty clear shot at President Trump, inferring he is ignorant. Bitterness, party of two.

Classless

What else would you expect from a pair of classless narcissists who have constantly taken shots at the President since they left the White House?

Two years ago, Mr. Obama strongly suggested that the world has ongoing problems because Trump is an angry racist with “mommy issues.”

The former President even took a shot at his successor by comparing this administration to 1930s Germany.

And speaking of audacity, Obama had the gall to suggest he and Democrat Joe Biden always took responsibility for their mistakes when they were in the White House.

“Can you imagine standing up when you were president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility.’ Literally. Literally,” Biden asked his former boss.

“Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office,” replied Obama.

Fox News Ainsley Earhardt Fires Back At Pelosi After Speaker Refers To AG Barr As A ‘Blob’

Ainsley Earhardt, co-host of Fox & Friends, called Nancy Pelosi out after the House Speaker described Attorney General William Barr as a “blob” and “henchman” for President Trump.

Following Barr’s testimony on Capitol Hill Tuesday, a spectacle meant only to make Democrat lawmakers feel good about themselves by “reclaiming their time,” Pelosi attacked the Attorney General for allegedly doing the President’s bidding.

She was particularly distraught over his use of federal law enforcement to quell violence in cities like Portland and Chicago.

“He was like a blob,” she said, sputtering along in an MSNBC interview. “He was like a, just a henchman for the president of the United States, instead of the attorney general of the United States of America.”

Name-calling. The woman who is second in line to the presidency and her best retort is to call Barr a blob.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham: Somebody From Obama’s FBI Needs To Go To Jail

Double Standard

Earhardt was quick to call out the fact that there is quite the double standard in Pelosi’s disrespectful comments about Barr.

“Nancy Pelosi is saying that he is a henchman and a blob, and there’s a double standard there,” she accused. “What if someone called a woman a blob?”

The Fox & Friends host then turned it over to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for his thoughts on the House Speaker’s attack.

“It’s terrible,” he replied. “But this is the same individual who said that the President of the United States is an imposter back during impeachment.”

Jordan added, “I don’t take what she says about people in the administration very seriously.”

To that point, America doesn’t really take what she says seriously. Earhardt is right – imagine the uproar had a Republican called a female Democrat a ‘blob’ or any other schoolyard insult.

They’d be forced to apologize from the House floor.

What Barr Really Said

In Barr’s opening statement he spoke of “one standard of justice” and how he has “handled criminal matters that have come to me for a decision in this way.”

He was clear and concise about his independence from the administration.

“The President has not attempted to interfere in these decisions,” he stated. “On the contrary, he has told me from the start that he expects me to exercise my independent judgment to make whatever call I think is right.”

In other words, not a henchman by any means.

Pelosi went on to reiterate her disgusting claims that federal law enforcement officers are the equivalent of “stormtroopers.”

“Peaceful protest is who we are and what we do. And do some other people come along and try to disrupt? Yes,” she said. “But you don’t send in people acting like stormtroopers into the scene and evoking even more, even more unease and unrest.”

Imagine that line of thinking in dealing with other crimes. You don’t send police into a bank robbery and put the bank at risk. You don’t send police to a domestic violence situation and cause the assailant to become ‘uneasy.’

It’s clear Pelosi’s mind is ‘like a blob’ – a dark, shapeless and aimless mass of darkness.

Trey Gowdy Dares Jerry Nadler To Tell Murder Victims’ Families ‘That The Violence Is Manufactured’

Former Republican congressman and Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy told Sean Hannity Tuesday night that the tense House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr testifying showed the contrast between Republicans and Democrats ahead of the 2020 election.

“Do you want the anarchy that you see in Portland and Seattle?” Gowdy rhetorically asked. “Or do you want a country where everyone is safe and secure?”

Trey Gowdy Absolutely Torches Jerry Nadler

“What you … saw today is what a serious, grown-up attorney general could do for this country and it makes me wish and wonder where we would be if he had been the AG from day one, if Bill Barr had been the president’s first AG,” Gowdy said.

Gowdy is the former chairman of the House Oversight Committee. Gowdy went on to portray Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler as “crazy Uncle Jerry.”

Gowdy on Nadler: ‘Now you know, Sean, why the Democrats kept him hidden in the attic during impeachment’

“Now you know, Sean, why the Democrats kept him hidden in the attic during impeachment,” Gowdy said. “They didn’t want him anywhere near impeachment, and for anybody who wondered why the chairman of Judiciary had no role in impeachment, today you figured it out.”

Nadler accused Barr of sending federal agents to tamp down rioting in Portland just to provide Trump with footage for campaign commercials during Tuesday’s hearing. When Barr tried to reply and deny the charge, Nadler just spoke over him.

Nadler also refused Barr’s request for a five-minute break, to which the AG responded by calling Nadler – with tongue in cheek – a “class act.”

Gowdy: ‘Go find all the homicide victims, Jerry… and tell them that the violence is manufactured’

Gowdy defended the deployment of federal agents to Portland, saying “the number one obligation of government is public safety.”

“What I wish Nadler would do,” Gowdy continued, “is go find all the homicide victims and their family members in New York, go find the parents of that one-year-old who got killed and tell them that the violence is manufactured.”

“Go find all the homicide victims, Jerry, in your own backyard and tell them that the violence is manufactured,” Gowdy finished.

With Trump’s Re-Election Almost Assured, Conservatives Need To Be Focused On The House And Senate

The Dems aren’t playing 3–D chess while the Republicans play checkers. Dems are ruthless and power-mad, but they’re malevolently intelligent, not smart in any normal sense of the word. They know the system front, back, and sideways. They have a script and stick to it, mostly.

They have a strategy (such as it is) driven by a rancid ideology, so they don’t have to “think,” really. Dems are emoting machines, not thinking machines. Dems perform, they do not work, as in “work for a living.”

The Dem strategy for impeachment runs parallel with other strategies with the shared goal of Fundamental Transformation – of this country, the dominant culture, contemporary society, norms, rules, conventions.

Impeachment is simply more chaos, more uncertainty, more unhappiness. These are all desirable outcomes, as far as today’s Democrats are concerned. Spread the misery far and wide. It’s what the white patriarchy deserves.

MORE NEWS: Rahm Emanuel: Athletes Who Kneel During Anthem Just Like People Kneeling During “Religious Services”

By my estimation, four Republican seats might swing but only two Democrats. So unless there is something really big in October, the Senate is about even. I would hate to lose those judges and hopefully a new budget deal.

IT IS ALL EXTREMELY DIABOLICAL

The television news, talk, and late-night shows are all highlighting how righteous the DemocRATs are and how evil, vindictive, and revengeful Trump is. The media is a powerful weapon against Trump. This goes on 24/7. Senators listen to the TV and the polls, and they continue to hear that Trump is bad and must go.

Clever sound-bites are burying the truth.

The Dems and their media partners are extremely skilled in their psychological propaganda. Now secret recordings are being paraded to boost their case. The media is not covering the Trump defense like they did the prosecution, of course. It does not see the light of day, on purpose. And even though Trump’s lawyers are confident they have the truth, he could still lose (see last paragraph).

People need to prepare themselves because God forbid, Trump could lose.

That’s exactly what George Soros and other billionaire globalists (communists) are striving for. I have said it again and again that merely reelecting Trump is not enough. Look what the House has already done with their majority. If the Dems win in the Senate and keep the House, Trump will hardly be able to move.

It’s high time to put that popcorn aside that Trump is going to win in a landslide and concentrate heavily on the House and the Senate. Other than the heavy election and ballot fraud, Trump’s reelection is pretty much assured.

DEMS ARE LOSING THE BLACK VOTE AND ARE DESPERATE

The left knows that they are losing the Black vote (and probably the Hispanic too), so they are desperately trying to get the white moderates and independent votes thru blaming President Trump for all the staged civil unrest.

The false compassion, white demonization strategy is very risky and deadly for Democrats because it relies on violent anarchists committing criminal acts to create fear and uncertainty. At the same time, the Democrats do nothing (and enable the chaos).

Eventually, reasonable people will be looking for who can control and reverse all the damage done. How can the Democrats be the solution to the problem they created?

The most frustrating thing about politics isn’t the rabid anti-American left; it is the gutlessness of our pro-American Republicans, who, with almost no exception, I don’t doubt that they love this country. I don’t understand how they can’t understand that millions of people would cheerfully support them if they stood up to this garbage.

THE MORE I THINK ABOUT THINGS ARE COOL

No one is enthusiastic about Biden. Most Trump supporters can’t wait to vote for Trump and I would rather Trump poll a little behind as it will be a reminder to go and vote for him. At the same time, the sleepy Joe voters will hopefully repeat 2016 and just stay home thinking that Joe has it in the bag and there is no reason to waste time voting for him, and they aren’t all that excited to vote for him anyway.

MORE NEWS: Suspect Taunts Cops In Viral Video, Saying ‘Come And Get Me B***h’ – Then They Do

I don’t think the Democrats are focusing on the “anybody, but Trump” vote is a winning strategy.

THAT’S WHY WE MUST DO THIS

Everyone here needs to get off of their ass and vote. We need people to do more than type about their beliefs. Vote. Get your friends and family to vote. This is one of the critical moments in history. If you don’t vote, you should be too ashamed to ever chat in forums like this again.

Monica Lewinsky Nails It With ‘I Have A Joke’ Clinton Reference

Monica Lewinsky, the political world’s most famous intern, took a shot at the ‘I have a joke’ social media trend and delivered a knockout blow.

The competition was initiated by Nell Scovell, creator of the TV series ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch,’ when she tweeted, “I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills.”

‘I have a joke’ was swiftly trending afterward.

To which Lewinsky offered up her own version.

“I have an intern joke and it … nevermind,” she wrote, at least leaving the final word to the imagination, though it’s hardly difficult to figure out where she was going.

RELATED: ESPN Host Who Mocked Trump For Saying Seattle Protesters Were Violent Comes Home To Find Apartment Complex Torched – Now He Wants A Gun

What Does She Mean?

If you’re too young to remember, Lewinsky had a politically earth-shattering affair with former President Bill Clinton in the ’90s, a relationship which would lead to his impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice.

Clinton’s wife, Hillary, has staunchly defended her husband, insisting he never should have stepped down amidst the scandal, an act which ultimately brought us to today, when no scandal in politics is truly shocking any longer.

“Absolutely not,” the former First Lady insisted when asked if he should have resigned.

She said this less than two years ago when the #MeToo movement was in full swing.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” a reporter asked, to which she replied: “No. No.”

The affair between Mr. Clinton and Ms. Lewinsky is widely seen as an abuse of power, due to the position held by each and the age differences. Clinton was 49 at the time, Lewinsky just 22.

The former President was also accused of multiple infidelities, sexual assaults, and even rape by Juanita Broaddrick, a former nursing home owner.

Clinton has said the ‘gutsiest’ thing she’d ever done in her personal life was to stay married to Clinton, despite these numerous affairs and accusations.

Not Monica’s First Joke

This isn’t the first time Monica has joked about her famous affair.

Last summer, Vice President Mike Pence suggested Americans need to spend more time praying than on the internet, though his advice was truncated by the Washington Times.

They tweeted: “Mike Pence: ‘Spend more time on your knees than on the internet.'”

Freelance journalist Lauren Duca offered a snarky response to the Times tweet of the column: “OK, who’s gonna tell him?”

That’s when Monica chimed in …

This last joke, however, according to actress Mia Farrow, deserves props.

“Monica wins the internet,” she wrote.

Maxine Waters On Trump Using Federal Law Enforcement In Portland: ‘Trial Run’ For When He Refuses To Accept Election Loss

Rep. Maxine Waters dipped her toes into the unhinged conspiracy theorist pool, suggesting the federal police response to violence in Portland is a “trial run” for when President Trump refuses to accept his election loss.

Waters (D-CA) made the claim during an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid Wednesday night.

It’s not to quell violence in these Democrat-run cities, you see, federal law enforcement is there as a plant to be ready for action come November.

“This is what you see in country’s that have dictators,” she claimed. “In third-world countries with dictators, they have paramilitary that they can call up against the people anytime they want.”

No, Mad Max, what you see in third-world countries is what you’re seeing on the streets of leftist-controlled cities – chaos, with no regard to law and order.

And that’s when she added an extra layer to her tinfoil hat …

RELATED: Maxine Waters Pulls Over And Confronts Police Who Stopped Black Driver

Untethered From Reality

Waters proceeded to engage in ridiculous speculation about President Trump not accepting the election results should he lose to Democrat Joe Biden.

You know, the same thing they claimed he would do in 2016. When it turned out it was Democrats who spent four years refusing to accept the election results. They act like we can’t remember what they said and did a mere four years ago.

“As a matter of fact, it has been suggested that this is a trial run for the president of the United States who may be organizing to not accept what happens when we have the election if he’s not elected,” she wildly asserted.

“Is he going to pull out his military? Is he going to engage us?” fretted Waters. “He has already alluded to there may be a civil war if he’s not re-elected. This is dangerous.”

To nobody’s surprise, Reid sat there nodding her head in agreement as Waters spewed the absurd claim.

RELATED: Hillary Clinton: Watching Trump You Have To Be Concerned About His Cognitive Abilities

The Suggestion

It isn’t that hard to find where the ‘suggestion’ came from.

MSNBC’s John Heilemann made similar allegations earlier this week, meaning a good portion of the network actually believes Trump would use the military and refuse to leave office if he loses the election.

“I don’t want to be overly alarmist about this,” Heilemann said. “But this is the time to be alarmist knowing where Donald Trump stands politically, understanding where we are headed in this election.”

“I think we are looking at potentially a trial run for … a genuine attempt to, through intimidation, and potentially through force, to try to steal this election.”

This is projection, pure and simple. It’s what a Democrat in the White House would be doing if they lost to Trump. You’ve already seen what they have done in trying to oust him – impeachment hoaxes, constant lying by the media, spying, planting fake news, insurance policies, and on and on.

Do you think for a moment that Antifa and other leftist rioters wouldn’t be burning the streets if they didn’t get their way? You’re seeing it right before your eyes!

Last month, Biden predicted the military would have to intervene should Trump lose to him in the 2020 election and refuse to leave office.

It’s not just MSNBC hacks and unhinged Auntie Maxine with these conspiracy theories. It’s gone mainstream to the man who could be sitting in the White House this time next year.

And that is scary.
