First Debate: Biden lies based on media’s lies

With the first 2020 Presidential debate in the books, it was clear to see President Trump was debating media lies for the past 4+ years as Joe Biden & Chris Wallace repeated those same lies during the debate.

  • Fox News Debate host Chris Wallace yet again brought up ‘white nationalists’ and the ‘far-right group’ Proud Boys and asked Trump if he denounces them. (Trump has denounced the KKK as well as any form of group that is racist dozens of times when asked. Oddly enough, Joe Biden was just endorsed by Richard Spencer, a self-proclaimed white nationalist weeks ago. Chris must have forgotten. Also, last week Trump authorized Antifa and White Supremacists groups as Domestic Terrorists.)

  • Wallace and Biden both repeated the “Very fine people on both sides” lie from the Charlottesville, Va incident that happened years ago. Of course, just like the media has done for years, refuse to say Trump’s entire quote to put that statement into context.

Just like clockwork, waking up this morning you see headlines from the New York Times, Washington Post, and virtually the rest, stating “Trump supports white nationalists” or “Trump again does not denounce white racism.” It is Deja Vu back to 2016 when Trump denounced David Duke repeatedly, yet the national media said he didn’t. Or, he didn’t do it ‘fast enough’.

Twitter trends as of this morning are: #TRUMPSARACIST, #PROUDBOYS, #RACISTTRUMP, #WHITENATIONLISM.

What happened: Late last evening, House Minority leader (D) Nancy Pelosi unveiled a new, slimmed-down stimulus package of $2.2T. Their previous package proposal added up to $3.4T. This new package still may be too much for Republicans: Republicans have held firm they would be willing to agree to a new stimulus package in the range of $500B to $1T. President Trump a few weeks back seemingly upped that total to $1.5T. The $2.2 trillion revised bill includes new aid money for airlines and restaurants as well as more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, another round of direct stimulus payments, $600 weekly federal unemployment benefits, and more state and local aid. If Pelosi and Mnuchin cannot reach a separate agreement before Wednesday, the House is expected to vote on the new bill despite a lack of Republican support. Even if the bill doesn’t advance to President Trump’s desk, vulnerable...
What happened: A “psalm sing” attended by more than 100 people Wednesday in the Moscow, Idaho City Hall parking lot led to three arrests, including that of Latah County commission candidate Gabriel Rench. Rench, a Moscow Republican running against incumbent Moscow Democrat Tom Lamar in November’s election, was one of five people cited by Moscow police for suspicion of being in violation of Moscow's mask/social distancing order, according to Moscow Police Chief James Fry. (D) Mayor of Moscow, Bill Lambert: We could find no comment from the Mayor on the arrest of Pastor Rench as of yet, only a recent press release in July stating, "I am proud to serve as the Mayor of Moscow, a culturally diverse and welcoming community."
What Nancy Pelosi said today at a press conference when asked about her illegal salon visit yesterday: "I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I've been to, over the years, many times, and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that. As it turns out, that was the setup. So, I take responsibility for falling for a setup. And that's all I'm going to say on that." Pelosi also is requesting an apology from the salon: "I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up." President Trump commented on the video tape via Twitter saying: Salon owner Erica Kious said last night: "It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and...
Rules for thee but not for me...House Majority Leader (D) Nancy Pelosi was spotted on video at her local salon on Monday afternoon, Fox News is reporting after getting ahold of videotape of her inside the establishment. The problem is, salons are not allowed to be open due to current COVID rules in California. Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only. Pelosi is seen on video walking through eSalon in San Francisco with wet hair, and without a mask over her mouth or nose. The owner of salon sent in the tape because of how excessive COVID rules have hurt the beauty industry all over the country. "I am sharing this because of what everyone in my industry and my city ... is going through right now." Salon owner Erica Kious Kious also went on to...
History: Wolf has served as the acting head of DHS since November of last year. The department has been without a Senate-confirmed secretary since Kirstjen Nielsen resigned in April of 2019. The nomination won't be 'cut and dry': Two weeks ago, a government watchdog agency found that Wolf and his acting deputy, Ken Cuccinelli, were named to their current roles illegally, in violation of the Vacancies Reform Act, in part because they had not faced Senate confirmation. Wolf has been an advocate of President Trump’s immigration agenda from the long-promised southern border wall to more recent restrictions on illegal border crossers.
