And Have I Got a Bridge to Sell to You!

WATCH: White House press sec says Biden hasn't held a press conference and barely takes questions because he's too busy | The Post Millennial

"We look forward to holding a full press conference in the coming weeks, before the end of the month, and we are working a setting a final date for that, and as soon as we do, we will let you all know.

"But, this president came in during a historic crisis, two historic crises: a pandemic like the country had not seen in decades and decades, and an economic downturn that left ten million people out of work.

Uh huh. They will continue to find friendly forums where they know President Joe Biden (D-USA) won’t be asked tough questions and where he’ll be forgiven if he fumbles over the answers. And they will try to tell us that he is taking questions, and try to pretend that counts.

I’ll Take ‘Headlines You Never Saw When Trump Was President’ for $1000

Black Unemployment Rate Rises Despite Declines for All Other Groups (yahoo.com)

The Black unemployment rate climbed in February even as most other Americans saw a decline in joblessness, underscoring that the labor-market recovery remains uneven one year after the pandemic began.

The unemployment rate for Black Americans rose to 9.9%, the highest among all race groups tracked, the Labor Department said Friday. The overall U.S. jobless rate fell to 6.2% and White, Hispanic and Asian-American workers saw declines, the data show.

What were the Trump headlines? I’m sure I remember. Oh yes. CNBC, Friday, October 4, 2019.

Black and Hispanic unemployment is at a record low (cnbc.com)

  • The jobless rate for Hispanics hit a record low of 3.9% in September, while African Americans maintained its lowest rate ever, 5.5%. 
  • The unemployment rate for Asian Americans was 2.5% in September. The jobless rate for adult women came in at 3.1%.

Good thing we voted out President Donald Trump (R-USA).

I Guess I was Wrong

I criticized YouTube here for only applying their rules to one side, when they censored President Donald Trump’s (R-USA) CPAC speech from right-leaning outlets.

Well, they finally got around to censoring it everywhere. Of course, they had to suspend another right broadcasting sight in the process.

Strange that the left keeps wanting to silence the right. Almost as if they’re afraid someone might learn something.

Worth pointing out—again:

Dreaded QAnon March 4 Uprising Fails to Materialize in the Capitol - American Greatness (amgreatness.com)

U.S. intelligence analysts apparently came to this conclusion after perusing QAnon message boards, where true-believers theorized that former president Trump would retake office on March 4, the country’s original Inauguration Day.

In dozens of reports, the corporate media hyped the “potential threat” of a QAnon uprising in our nation’s Capitol.

In response, the House of Representatives suspended its Thursday session and Capitol Police and National Guard troops went on “high alert.”

One person got it right.

As long as the left can keep you in fear, of the China Virus, of “right-wing insurrectionists”, then they can control you. Everything the left has done for the last 12 months has been about fear & control.

I, for one, have had enough.

Maybe Giuliani isn’t as Cracked as I Thought

Giuliani urges to ban mail-in voting, cites other countries’ examples | One America News Network (oann.com)

Rudy Giuliani called to outlaw mail-in voting in the U.S. and said other countries don’t allow the practice in their elections. In a since-deleted tweet on Thursday, the former New York City Mayor said mail-in voting is subject to systemic fraud that can change outcomes of elections.

Giuliani appeared to refer to Ireland and the Netherlands, both of which recently mandated in-person voting in their elections this year. Meanwhile, President Trump’s lawsuit against voting fraud in Georgia is slated to be heard by the Grand Jury.

Well, when you’re right, you’re right. I’ve been wholeheartedly opposed to mail-in voting for at least a decade. I do not believe that it should be allowed in any cases, ever. There is just no way to ensure ballot integrity with mail-in voting.  And when you commit voter fraud, you disenfranchise me.
