[Raw Conservative Opinions] Anti American George Soros was interviewed by 60 Minutes years ago. In this infamous interview Soros claimed to have no shame for turning in fellow Jews to the Nazis in World War II Hungary. The Nazis stole from the Jews and Soros claimed that if he didn’t turn Jews into the Nazis, someone else would.
Notice that in this interview from 20 years ago, Soros was already involved in Ukraine:
After President Trump’s election, George Soros was reportedly behind the airport protests. A week before that Soros was reportedly behind 50 Groups involved in the ’Women’s Protests’ the day after the inauguration. Before that, Soros was connected to the groups demanding election recounts after the November 8th, 2016, election and Soros money was funding more protests during these efforts. And there was information showing that Soros funded Black Lives Matter protests across the country before that.
To be fair, Mr. Soros was only one of the Progressive multi-billionaires financing these groups, though as the eldest he was also the earliest of those currently involved.
It's difficult not to notice that for a 'philanthropist', his money never creates anything positive. No hospitals, no relief initiatives of any kind only the support of destructive, internally divisive groups.
(RightWing.org) — On October 14, the New York Post broke a bombshell news piece about Hunter Biden and his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, being involved in a pay to play scheme. Emails recovered from a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter suggested that he and the former VP cashed in big. Now, more proof is coming out that the story has real teeth, and it’s not good for the former vice president.
Almost immediately after the story was posted, Democrats, the media, and social media denounced the report from the nation’s fifth-largest newspaper. They claimed it was disinformation by the Russians despite claims contrary to from the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ). Twitter blocked the New York Post article claiming it violated its policy on hacking and banned its Twitter page indefinitely.
EMAILS ARE AUTHENTIC
New emails revealed on Thursday, October 15, show that the Democratic nominee for president participated in a family scheme to pry millions of dollars from a Chinese Communist company for their own benefit.
It’s widely known that Hunter traveled with his father on Air Force Two to China. The younger Biden secured a $1.5 billion deal from a Chinese Communist Party bank on the trip. Additionally, Hunter made more money in a month than many Americans make in a year as a Board member of a Ukrainian energy company despite having no experience in the energy industry.
On Wednesday, he said all of his proof was turned over to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and the Government Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance.
In particular, Hunter Biden’s business partner, Tony Bobulinski, said he was included in an email dated May 13, 2017. It reveals payouts of money to the younger Biden and a 10% payout set aside to Joe Biden on the Chinese deal. Bobulinski said the "email is genuine." Furthermore, the former business partner said that Hunter often referred to his father as "my chairman and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing."
EVIDENCE PROVIDED TO SENATE COMMITTEES
In addition, Bobulinski says he has more evidence to back up the charges against the Bidens, including documents, messages, emails, and other forms of information. On Wednesday, he said all of his proof was turned over to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and the Government Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance.
The former business partner said he couldn’t let his name be associated with ties to Russian disinformation, false narratives, or lies in the media.
EMAIL DESTROYS BIDEN’S ARGUMENT
Biden has stayed relatively silent since the Post broke the news. Neither he nor Hunter has said the claims are false and have evaded the story. However, last fall, Biden said he had no idea what his son was doing, and earlier this week, the former vice president said it was a "smear campaign."
However, Bobulinski says that’s true. He saw up close and personal how the family made millions peddling the Office of the Vice President.
Hold on tight. This story is just getting started.

[TheZMan] In the Depression era Our Gang comedies, a recurring gag was for the kids to get adult sized costumes and put on a show. The joke was the sight-gag of the kids wearing the oversize clothes, but trying hard to play the roles in their show. It was made in a time when there was a clear line between childhood and adulthood, so the audience understood that it was not just using kids for cheap gags. It was also a way to make sport of current issues without being too obvious.
The man behind the Our Gang series was credited with using children in a natural way, so they came across as real kids, not adult actors playing children. The authenticity of the roles, a group of poor children in the depression, often pretending to be adults or what they imagined it was like to be adults, allowed the adult audience to laugh at themselves and the foolishness of adult pretensions. The best comedy is that which allows the audience to approvingly laugh at themselves.
It makes for an interesting contrast to the modern day. The most popular movies in this age feature adults dressing up as children’s comic book heroes. They engage in the sorts of fantasy stories featured in comic books. These movies are not made for children, but for adults. The median age of the American comic book consumer is 34. The point of the movies is for the adults to escape anything resembling adulthood and engage in the sorts of flights of fancy normally associated with children.

Hoax is the wrong word. There is a virus, and some vulnerable people have succumbed to it. People are scared, and demanding that elected officials 'do something.' So they have done something. A whole lot of the wrong something, but something. And now they cannot admit they were wrong, so instead they double down. All perfectly predictable.
Interesting analogy comes to mind. The virus is most dangerous in people who experience a cytokine storm -- an over reaction of the immune system. Well, the virus is most dangerous in a society that overreacts as well.
I agree. I don't much like the word "hoax", either. The virus is real, and for the moment, whence it came isn't important. Perhaps the 'hoax' is the relative seriousness of COVID-19 and the snow job governments at numerous levels around the world have perpetrated (with the aid of the Silicon Valley slime).
[FrontPage] The coronavirus, like so many other social ills, real and metaphorical, incubated in major cities.
New York City, with the highest population density in the country, also accounted for the highest death toll. San Francisco, the second highest among large cities, was a major incubator.
Pandemic maps of the death toll show the deaths concentrating around major cities before making the slow trek from urban into suburban and eventually rural areas. The urban lockdowns didn’t stop the spread of the virus. What they really did was trap poor and middle class residents in urban areas, while the wealthy fled, and the virus spread to urbanites with the least mobility.
The people with the worst immune systems, in the densest living conditions, and the least ability to get up and leave, suffered the most, from nursing home patients to minorities with large families. The general pattern was historically familiar from the Middle Ages, and the only thing that our public health experts proved is that they weren’t any smarter than medieval peasants.
But the coronavirus is an urban problem and all the official solutions to it are urban solutions. And the urban problems and their solutions are killing us and taking down the whole country.
The Black Lives Matter race riots that followed on the heels of the lockdowns were yet another example of an urban problem exploding out of failed cities to become a national crisis. But the vast majority of our problems, social, economic, racial, and political, are the problem of the city.
Advances in modern medicine medicine and sanitary engineering only slow down the historical trend: Cities have Negative population growth. They only "grow" because of people moving into cities from the healthier countryside.
#4, its the Locust effect. They destroy one area, work themselves into a swarm, then move to a new area which they devastate with the same problems they caused in the previous area. And they learn about as well as locusts.
[FirstThings] During the recent vice presidential debate, I pointed out on Twitter that our form of government in the United States is not a democracy, but a republic. The confused and vehement media criticism that ensued persuaded me that this point might be better served in an essay rather than a 140-character Tweet.
Insofar as "democracy" means "a political system in which government derives its powers from the consent of the governed," then of course that accurately describes our system. But the word conjures far more than that. It is often used to describe rule by majority, the view that it is the prerogative of government to reflexively carry out the will of the majority of its citizens.
Our system of government is best described as a constitutional republic. Power is not found in mere majorities, but in carefully balanced power. Under our Constitution, passing a bill in the House of Representatives—the body most reflective of current majority views—isn’t enough for it to become law. Legislation must also be passed by the Senate—where each state is represented equally (regardless of population), where members have longer terms, and where (under current rules) a super-majority vote is typically required to bring debate to a close. Thomas Jefferson described the Senate as the "saucer" that cools hot passions more prevalent in the House. It’s where consensus is forged, as senators reach compromise across regional, cultural, and partisan lines.

Re #3: Early America at least in the middle and northern colonies was not oligarchic. A majority of free males owned property in colonial America and could therefore vote.
"Oligarchs" refers not to property owners generally but to a tiny number of extraordinarily wealthy citizens exercising control over the government. Not an accurate description of America before the days of the Robber Barons.
To point out the US is a republic, not a democracy just gets you called out as a small-minded pedant who hates democracy, by people who don't actually know the what the words republic, democracy or pedant actually mean.

[Rasmussen} President Trump holds a three-point lead over Democrat Joe Biden in Florida, a state that’s critical to whether or not the president is reelected.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds Trump beating Biden 49% to 46%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and another three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Factor in those who haven’t made up their minds yet but are leaning toward one candidate or the other, and Trump gains another point, besting Biden 50% to 46%.
[WND] Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, during Thursday's debate with President Donald Trump, hesitated about it, but then said he was going to go ahead. And he did.
He himself raised the issue that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani was being used as an "agent" of Russia to spread disinformation.
That, of course, was the opening for which the president was waiting, to ask Biden about the millions of dollars his family was getting from Russia, from China, and more. And what about the money that was being held for the "big guy," identified as Joe Biden?
The issue has erupted into what some analysts have described as the biggest scandal ever in American politics, as emails and other documentation that have become available — from insiders, from an abandoned computer, and more — have described how the Biden family was making multiple deals with foreign interests that would benefit the family with millions of dollars.
When the debate began Plugs had no difficulty talking, but about halfway through he began having problems with finding his words and speaking coherently.
Whatever drug(s) he was given to control the dementia were obviously wearing thin and his attention level was slipping. When he was caught and became entangled by the issues, his sheepish grin gave him away. Plug's body language had once again betrayed him.
He failed to complete his thoughts a few times. The other tip off was the wide open eyes and rapid blinking.
He he was likely on some type of drug. Having eyes that wide open for that length of time is not natural. His pupils could not be seen and may have been dilated.
Agree; Biden was punchy for the third and definitely fourth quarters.
Biden's best quarter was probably the second, but even Chris Berman gets irritating after a couple Come'on Man! shticks.
The eyes. I know there was a thing about bionic contacts with script. What it reminded me of was wearing polarized sunglasses and looking at a computer monitor.
I wonder if he had on special contacts to help see/tone down bright lights and the polarization hit at angles to a camera's polarization pattern. I don't know enough about corrective lenses or studio camera systems for that to be anything other than a guess.
Interesting test the Falun Gong is doing with Google Translate. If you translate "Biden lost the debate" into traditional Chinese script (the one used in Taiwan) it comes out correctly. If you translate it into Simplified Script, the characters used in the Mainland, it comes out "Biden won the debate."
[Hot Air] This WaPo story cites sources claiming that the subject’s already been broached among Trump and his advisors, with Wray potentially on the chopping block after the election.
I’ll go them one better. Given Trump’s growing desperation for a gamechanging October surprise against Biden, I think there’s a small but nonzero chance that he’ll fire Wray *before* the election. It’s perfectly within his character to look at the polls next Monday, see that he’s eight points behind, and to dial up Wray in a panic with an ultimatum. Are you going to announce that you’re opening an investigation into Joe Biden or not? If Wray says no, he’s done right then and there. And then Trump will set about trying to maneuver some crony into the vacancy who *will* announce an investigation into the Bidens for him.
Even if Wray is not intentionally going slow... this is the same reason I keep highlighting SpaceX over NASA. SpaceX does more every year spending 1/12 of what NASA does. Why? Simple they are not bureaucrats. They are a business that wants to succeed and make a profit. Same thing in places like where I live and you have private garbage companies in competition compared to big cities with city garbage workers. There is just no comparison. Private is cheaper, better and works harder. To me this implies we really want very small government with almost everything contracted out under performance contracts. Think about it.
Even if Trump wins in a walk and GOP retains the Senate, you can count on the dems to impeach Trump again if they retain the House and Trump fires Wray. If the GOP picks up the House too, watch GOPe squishes sign on with dems to ask for a special prosecutor over any Wray firing.

Why does HotAir continue to let that idiot biased a-hole "AllahPundit" write for them? Throw him over to HuffPo where he belongs. The guy is a nevertrumer, and pretty much leaning more lefty/prog as every day passes. He is no conservative and has no place on a conservative website.
[Townhall] The final presidential debate is over, and yes, President Donald Trump brought up Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and the reported corrupt schemes that earned them millions of dollars. Trump accurately described their enterprise as a vacuum that sucks up all the cash, even if it’s not in the interests of the United States and draws questions as to whether the elder Biden abused the office of the vice presidency for personal gain. You saw that with the Burisma arrangement back in 2014. All of the details were rehashed now that we have seen the dirty Biden laundry, thanks to Hunter’s emails.
Hunter was put on the board of this Ukrainian energy company for $50k/month. Hunter got the company leaked access to an Obama White House conference call and legal protection. Joe was heading up our policy efforts in Ukraine around this time. He got the prosecutor looking into Burisma fired by threatening to withhold aid to the country. He was also introduced to Burisma executives. Hunter was allegedly selling access to top Obama officials, and his dad seemed to know exactly what was going on, contrary to his claim of not knowing any of Hunter’s deals. The point is it looks like Joe Biden went rogue to protect his family’s interests and not of those of the United States. Protecting Hunter is not an Obama action item.
If that’s murky, the China scheme makes Joe’s involvement clearer. In fact, it seems that on a lot of these ventures, Joe Biden is the one who has to sign off on Hunter’s excursions. That’s what’s been alleged by Hunter’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, who is handing over to the FBI all devices and records of business deals where he and the Bidens were involved. He said Hunter called his dad the "chairman," and gave a press conference just before the final presidential debate Thursday night. It was wild [emphasis mine]:
Tony Bobulinski is probably turning states evidence to avoid playing rock hockey in the big arena.

- a corporate officer in Biden Inc's schemes
- the CEO, with a fiduciary responsibility hence obligation to know and approve the details of every major deal signed by anyone in the company
- a Biden family intimate, with knowledge of how the Bidens operate, how they speak to each other, what their code words mean
Bobulinski is perfectly positioned to know nearly everything about how the Biden Crime Family operates.
And as a corporate insider he's liable for their and their companies' misdeeds.
If his testimony doesn't end Joe Biden's candidacy forthwith, then we no longer have a republic.
[American Thinker] Limbaugh, however, took it farther and theorized that Biden experiences a phenomenon known as "sundowning." This "refers to a state of confusion occurring in the late afternoon and spanning into the night," explains the Mayo Clinic, and "may affect people with dementia[.]"
The bottom line is that Biden and evenings just don't mix well anymore. But here's the problem: the debate is in the evening — somewhat late, 8 P.M. — at the debate site: Nashville, Tennessee.
So how can Biden rise to this nocturnal occasion? Here's one possibility:
Alter the candidate's sleep schedule so that he retires and wakes up late, really late, so he can peak for an 8 P.M. event. At least a few days would be necessary to acclimate to this change — oh, perhaps like the four days Biden was kept secluded before tonight's debate.
I have observed this "phenomenon" in relatives in their 80's and 90's, many of whom had suffered strokes. Communication and lucid thought are difficult in the afternoon. Mid-morning is the best time for them, most retire for the evening by 7:00 or 8:00 pm.
[American Thinker] Growing up in South Africa from 1946 to 1987 meant living with racism as actual government policy. Races were strictly segregated and compartmentalized; the better jobs were reserved for whites, while blacks were educated and trained primarily to be "hewers of wood and drawers of water." Intermingling was strictly forbidden; different races could not live together, eat together, sleep together, or marry each other.
Voters were segregated. If you were black, you were permitted to vote in your ancestral "homeland" — a small tribal area rather like an Indian reservation in America — that had no real political power and few resources and was located far from the centers of commerce and industry.
The white governing party enforced this policy of "apartheid" (apartness) with brutal efficiency. A white opposition party that proposed a more just and equitable society for all races in South Africa had no hope of ever winning an election, much to the (private) relief of its supporters.
It was, as one commentator observed, a very strange society. In case you were wondering about the meaning of the American left's new catchphrase, "systemic racism," and what it looks like when actually implemented and enforced, that was it, in South Africa, from 1948 to the early 1990s.
What we have in America is not "it." Not by the farthest stretch of the most fevered progressive imagination does America in 2020 come anywhere near systemic racism or endemic racism. Yes, of course there are racists in America, and murderers, thieves, rapists, and baby-killers, too. Their numbers are a fraction of the whole, and they are marginalized by our legal system and our culture (with the strange exception of baby-killers — but that's a topic for a different conversation).
When I came to America in 1990, first to work (as a "resident alien") and much later as a (legal) immigrant and newly minted American citizen, I was enormously grateful to have secured a future in a land of promise so different from anything I had seen during my travels to every part of the world. There has not been, and likely will never be again, anything quite like America as originally founded and constructed during its relatively young life.
But a mystifying fact became clear to me long before I gladly took the oath of citizenship: that America was descending blindly into a minefield of warring camps that would inevitably tear this great nation apart. The very strange society I had left behind seemed, incredibly, to be resurrecting on these fabled shores in a virulent new form of apartheid supported by black hyphenated Americans living in segregated enclaves where they attended segregated schools and colleges and voted in black congressional districts and celebrated a black Christmas named Kwanzaa, a fabrication with tenuous links to Africa, whose chief merit seemed to be the fact that it separated blacks from whites at a time of year that traditionally brought most people together.
It's not called apartheid here — the trendy new word is "multiculturalism." But it is just the same old thing in new clothes, given form and substance by white cultural elites dazzled by their own brilliance, who confer sainthood on shameless black race-hustlers working the system for fame and profit, and lately on anyone else who emerges as a leader of the next trendy cause that gives birth to a new cultural tribe staking claim to a slice of the American pie for its exclusive gain.
The whole thing is a deadly charade so bizarre that we are now expected to celebrate warring bands of fascist thugs looting and burning and shooting their way through our cities and suburbs in the name of anti-fascism.
The charade will not end well. We have, I believe, only one chance left, on Nov. 3, to stop our downward slide into an abyss from which we will not emerge for a long time, if ever. I pray we get it right, because I have nowhere else to go if America fails.
Unchecked foreign immigration from the North, surrendering of firearms, Truth and Reconciliation Commission, white farm murders and property seizures, black control and outright ownership of mining and minerals, Russian trained senior military cadres. White flight at the national level. Near total exclusion of white gov't employees and administrators at all levels.
Yes, unchecked de-civilization as predicted by the late Ian Smith, former President of Rhodesia, decades ago. Post-apartheid South Africa, what an amazing success story.
I thought the president, once getting his footing early on, sailed sublimely through the latter 85% of the debate. There was trepidation - previous debates had been obviously rigged to confuse people, but Kristen Welker had to allow Trump to provide 30 second come backs when she didn't seem to want to.
Trump, despite all of the danger signs, came up against the Democrat socialist party and prevailed.
The only part of the debate I watched was the last one or two minutes. Can't stand to watch Joe. Then Melania sashay across the stage in front of Joe like a runway model over to her Don. I thought Joe was gonna crawl over the podium to sniff Melania's hair but Ms BiteMe wisely raced over and threw herself into Joe's arms (to hinder Joe from losing control after Melania passed by him).
But Joe did manage to break away from Ms BiteMe, walk over to the take moderator's face, breaking all social distancing rules by bending over and getting right in her face to, I am sure, say a sweet nothing.
Watched maybe 10 mins and got tired of seeing BIDEN and his BOTOX or Plastic Surgery job.
Doubt the comment? Simply pull Pre-2020 video / pictures and compare them with the Biden that emerged from the "basement"
Also noticed maybe a a twitch or tell. Frequently tugging on his Left arm shirt shelve cuff like to hide something or cover nervousness.
I honestly do not think I have ever heard that before in my entire life, and I'm talking extensive debates with actual fevered 'libertarians' about how we deserved Pearl Harbor and yet at the same time is was a fake setup by Roosevelt.
I'm not the target audience for these things so it is difficult for me to gauge the effectiveness of either candidate. For instance, I can point and giggle when Biden is slurring before the end of the first quarter - that may not be a deal breaker for a soccer mom who has spent the last 7 months quarantined with box wine.
I had a feeling Buy'em was in trouble when he interjected himself into the conversation when everyone but him was ready for at least 30 seconds of line but he said two words...and crickets for like 5 seconds, "That was my answer." Not pulling the Children are Sooo Perceptive nonsense, young son was watching with wife and he said, "I hope Trump wins, because that other guy doesn't answer the questions." My True Blues have been suspiciously quiet today, with the few posts slurring who have not made up their minds yet.
All this, to me, points to a....how was it stated?...as shellacking.
Don't get cocky, don't job but sprint the final 100 yards, capitalize on the good finish.
