“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, you ain’t black.” – Joe Biden

If this was a joke, as the Washington Posts suggest, (1) Biden sure took his time to set up and deliver and an awful punchline that produced no chuckles.

But apparently, the black community is fine with being the butt of a joke as long as it comes from the right mouth.

I’ve been sitting back and watching for the past couple of days how the mainstream media have either condemned CBS News correspondent Catherine Herridge, or remained silent while Democrats and other media outlets attack her.

All Catherine Herridge did was tweet out some official government documents. She didn’t add any spin on it or anything. She just tweeted them out to show the world.

In 2008, a little-known first term senator from Illinois won the Democratic Presidential nomination by defeating the favoured Hillary Clinton. Obama ran on a campaign of “hope,” “change,” and “yes we can,” where he was not going to be a part of the typical Washington elite class. Barack Obama then became President Obama.

Flashforward 8-12 years and two dramatically different viewpoints exist regarding Obama’s presidency:

In a shocking turn of events, the Democrats and the mainstream media are largely ignoring or questioning Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s sexual assault accuser.

Unfortunately, if you’ve been paying attention to politics over the last number of years, this really isn’t shocking.

In an interview with podcast host Katie Halper, Tara Reade, a former Biden staffer in the 90s, described the sexual assault allegation.

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

Rahm Emmanuel

As Democrats, and some Republicans, quickly jump to flex their authoritarian muscles during this unprecedented pandemic and economic crisis; Democrats have also been quick to push forward the old idea of nationwide mail-in elections for state primaries and Federal elections. (1)

In the name of “public safety” of course.

Yesterday, I was stunned to see a video of a man in Philadelphia being forcibly removed from a bus because he was not wearing a face mask. There is no actual law enforcing people wearing face masks, but that didn’t stop law enforcement from manhandling him off the bus. It was a totalitarian and authoritarian move. I then read and watched more and more videos and articles of governors and mayors enforcing strict decrees infringing on the rights of their constituents. It seems surreal. America, where freedom and liberty is absolutely paramount, is now a land where citizen’s rights are being chipped away all in the name of security.

The world is currently engulfed in an unprecedented pandemic that is threatening the lives of millions of people worldwide. Every western country has seen lockdowns initiated by the local, state and/or federal governments. Sporting leagues and events like the NBA, Summer Olympics, UEFA Euro 2020, and many others have been cancelled or delayed without a timetable to return. Wimbledon, which has not been cancelled wince World War II, was officially cancelled a few days ago.  More seriously, millions of people around the world have faced or will face job loss as a result of COVID-19. According to the US Labor Department, ten million Americans have already lost their jobs as a result of the business shutdowns caused by COVID-19.

Covid 19 has presented government with a plethora of different challenges, a principal one being how to track and determine real cases of this virus.

Yesterday news broke of a 17 year old boy in LA County who had died. The media jumped on the case as a death attributed to Covid 19 but that information has now been placed on hold seeing that the teen suffered from a number of complications prior to being infected. The US mortality rate for those infected is hovering around 1.4-1.5% (or 0.5-0.6%) more than the yearly viral influenza.
