Bernie Sanders Makes Call For Unity During DNC Speech

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders closed out the first day of the 2020 Democratic National Convention on Monday night, delivering remarks that included a call for progressives and liberals within the Democratic Party to throw their support behind presidential nominee Joe Biden, stating that the “future of our democracy is at stake” in the upcoming November election.

Yes, that’s true. It most certainly is at stake. Which is why conservatives need to band together and ensure that Biden-Harris are never given an opportunity to sit in the White House. To do so would spell certain doom for our country and the principles it was built on.

Here’s more on this from the Washington Examiner:

“My friends, I say to you, and to everyone who supported other candidates in this primary and to those who may have voted for Donald Trump in the last election: The future of our democracy is at stake. The future of our economy is at stake. The future of our planet is at stake,” Sanders said in a prerecorded speech filmed in his Burlington, Vermont, home.

Sanders’s remarks highlighted his role as a uniter who, despite this year’s Democratic primary proving significantly less competitive than that of 2016, has been tasked with shoring up the Democratic Party’s progressive base. For months, Biden’s campaign has been concerned that younger voters, who overwhelmingly supported Sanders in the primary, won’t show up to the polls for Biden.

“We must come together, defeat Donald Trump, and elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next president and vice president,” Sanders said. “My friends, the price of failure is just too great to imagine.”

Much of what Sanders is referring to here has to do with the split in the Democratic Party that has happened due to both of his failed presidential campaigns. The Democratic Party worked fairly hard against Sanders in both cases, which has caused his supporters to feel alienated and thus less than willing to support Biden.

Sanders is trying to get his dedicated followers to jump on the Biden bandwagon by making it seem that if they refuse to do so, they’re going to be responsible for the downfall of “American democracy.”

In most other respects, the left is super united. Actually, it goes beyond being united. It’s groupthink and groupspeak. They are completely in-sync with one another. And if anyone dare do any sort of “individualized” thinking, they are cast out and shamed until they repent of their sins.

Here’s to hoping these folks can’t get their acts together before the election.

FBI Backtracks After Unconscionable Statement on Synagogue Hostage Situation

Wonder what took them so long?

Published

on

Earlier this week, the FBI caught a great deal of deserved flak over a ridiculously obtuse assessment of a nearly disastrous situation, and now they’re attempting to backtrack heavily.

It all began after the brother of one of the world’s most notorious terrorists took several people hostage at a synagogue in Texas, and on Saturday, no less.  Thankfully, the situation resolved with no innocent persons being killed, and only the perpetrator losing his life in the process.

But the FBI’s original assessment of the situation appeared to suggest that the targeting of a synagogue by a Radical Islamic sympathizer was somehow not a matter of antisemitism.  Twitter was soon full of angsty, shocked posts, blasting the FBI for their inability to see the forest for the trees.

Now, the Bureau is backtracking.  Big time.

Malik Faisal Akram, the British national who was killed Saturday night after allegedly taking four people hostage inside a Texas synagogue, spoke “repeatedly” about a convicted terrorist during negotiations with law enforcement, according to an FBI statement obtained by Fox News.

The statement, which was released late Sunday, does not identify the terrorist serving an 86-year prison sentence in the U.S. on terrorism charges, but may shed new light on a possible motive.

Akram could be heard on a Facebook livestream demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist suspected of having ties to al Qaeda who was convicted of trying to kill U.S. Army officers in Afghanistan.

“This is a terrorism-related matter, in which the Jewish community was targeted, and is being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force,” the statement read.

The sudden change of tone may be a day late and a buck short, however, as this isn’t the first time that the FBI has engaged in such boneheaded behavior of late.

UFC Chief Laments Lack of Available Monoclonal COVID Treatments

This, just days after Florida accused the federal government of hoarding the life-saving treatments.

Published

on

If you were to ask the government about the options that we have for defeating the coronavirus pandemic, you are likely to hear but one side of the story:  Vaccines.

The Biden administration has been unwavering in their support of these inoculations, even going so far as to attempt to install a constitutionally unsound vaccine mandate that took only two months for the Supreme Court to gut.

But there are other options too, induing the widely popular and effective monoclonal antibody treatments.  And, despite the government’s insistence on pushing vaccines on the masses, the Biden administration has also appeared to corner the market on these life-saving medicines…and they’re being awfully stingy with them.

“I bet I could get some f*****g pain pills quicker than I could get monoclonal antibodies,” UFC President Dana White said in regards to the rationing of monoclonal antibodies for treatment of COVID-19 during a press conference on Saturday following the UFC 45 Vegas in Las Vegas, NV.

MMA Weekly asked White about a left-wing censorship campaign targeting Joe Rogan under the auspices of “misinformation” involving an “open letter” from assorted medical professionals and academic calling on Spotify, the distributor or Rogan’s eponymous podcast, to “take action” against what they described as “mass-misinformation” which is “medically and culturally dangerous.”

The exchange was lively to say the least.

MMA Weekly asked, “I was wondering what your thoughts were with the 200-plus doctors trying to put pressure on Spotify saying that Joe’s a menace.”

White replied, “Are they really? Well how about this, ever since I came out and said what I did, It’s almost impossible now to get monoclonal antibodies. They’re making it so you can’t get them — medicine that absolutely works, they’re keeping from us. I don’t want to get too political and start getting into all this s***, but ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been around for a long time. Now, all of a sudden, you can’t dig them up to save your life. The doctors won’t give them to you.”

The criticism arrives amid a flurry of complaints from Florida officials, complaining that the Biden administration simply will not ship these treatments to them, and without providing any reason as to why.
