Ukraine: Biden’s Admission on Video

Biden on video in 2018, bragging about pressuring Ukraine to shut down an investigation involving his son. Biden boasts that he told the Ukrainian government,

“If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well son of a bitch. He got fired!”

That’s it for that.


Media notes:

For the most part they’ve been horribly dishonest, of course. Yet surprisingly, a lot of the usual suspects are letting the truth about Biden’s quote slip out.

Even the Washington Post has run this story, complete with the damning quote. Wow.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/09/24/democrats-investigation-might-do-more-hurt-biden-than-trump/

So did The Atlantic. Of course they surround Biden’s quote with “the real villain here is Trump” bullshit, but still!
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/09/biden-trump-corruption/598705/

Biden told the story himself at a Council on Foreign Relations event in 2018:

“I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”

To summarize, Biden threatened to withhold aid if the prosecutor wasn’t fired, and he was. Importantly, Biden was not freelancing, but was acting as a representative of President Barack Obama.

Mother Jones provides the Biden quote, though again, of course surrounded by “the real villain here is Trump” agitprop:

The Hunter Biden Timeline

Joe Biden later told the story of Shokin’s firing like this: “I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.

The extended version of the video, almost an hour, is at RealClearPolitics.

Biden’s relevant statements start between the 52 and 53 minute points (the link defaults the video to a minute or so before the good stuff begins). Biden boasts that while in Ukraine,

I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.

I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired.

I usually avoid the 4D chess thing, but in this case I think that’s what happened. Trump knew about this video before he spoke to the Ukranian President, of course. He was practically daring the Dems to open up this can of worms. And they did.

Leftists, firing a laser at a mirror: “Oww! Fucking Trump!”

Supreme Court Paves Way for President Trump to Use Military Funds for Wall

Wall

AWESOME!!!

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/supreme-court-paves-way-for-trump-administration-to-use-military-funds-for-border-wall

The Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration on Friday in lifting a freeze backed by a lower court that had halted plans to use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction.

The decision, which split the bench along ideological lines, allows the administration to move ahead with plans to use military funds to replace existing fencing in California, Arizona and New Mexico.

…The president celebrated the ruling on Twitter: “Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”

“We are pleased that the Supreme Court recognized that the lower courts should not have halted construction of walls on the southern border,” Justice Department spokesperson Alexei Woltornist said in a statement. “We will continue to vigorously defend the Administration’s efforts to protect our Nation.”

In related news, Ruth Bader Ginsberg just announced that she recently completed treatment for pancreatic cancer. I think that if the God Emperor is re-elected in 2020, we get at least one more Supreme Court appointment.

Leftists Surprised to Find Themselves Eaten by Monsters They Created (part of a continuing series)

The assault on leftists by monsters they created is not merely continuing; it’s accelerating.

SawingBranchYoureOn
“This can only end well!”

(1) Headline: Chelsea Clinton is berated by Muslim NYU students who blame HER for New Zealand mosques attack because she ‘incited an Islamophobic mob’ against Rep Ilhan Omar
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6815797/Chelsea-Clinton-berated-Muslim-students-blame-New-Zealand-mosques-attack.html

“This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world,” says Dweik, gesturing to the vigil for the 49 who were killed in Christchurch when a white nationalist shooter stormed two mosques.

“And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deeply – 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there,” Dweik continues, jabbing her index finger toward Clinton as other students snap their fingers in apparent approval of her words.

Via Vox Day, who comments,

It’s rather amusing to see how bewildered the media is about this unanticipated reaction. “Wait, you’re supposed to blame the false flag on white supremacists, WHITE SUPREMACISTS! How can you possibly screw this up?”

(2) On House Dems’ failed attempt to admonish Ilhan Omar for (alleged) anti-semitic remarks:
https://pjmedia.com/homeland-security/ilhan-omar-leader-of-the-democratic-party/

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) faced rebuke, albeit indirectly, from her own party in a resolution condemning anti-Semitism that had been developed as a response to her repeated anti-Semitic statements… Omar’s victory is total. The anti-Semitism resolution was turned into a condemnation of “Islamophobia” and “white supremacism,” she remains on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the entire Democratic leadership has made it clear that they don’t dare cross her.

…the sclerotic Democratic Party establishment lacks the will to tangle with Omar, who is an exponent of a skilled and ruthless propaganda machine that has long been in the Democrats’ corner, but has never — until now — turned its brute force against the Democrats themselves.

Pelosi and her cohorts learned this week… that if they cross Ilhan Omar, they will be accused of “racism” and “Islamophobia” just as swiftly and reflexively as those smear labels are applied to Republicans.

Heh heh heh. In your fucking face, Pelosi. And all the rest of you.

And then there are Jews, who vote overwhelmingly Democrat, that is, for the party that has been avidly importing Jew-hating Muslims for decades. Seriously, what the fuck did they think would be the result of that?

(3) Related to the foreoing: It’s Omar’s Party Now

…Yesterday, the arch-leftist group MoveOn denounced the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which has until now enjoyed broad bipartisan support, and urged Democratic presidential candidates to boycott AIPAC’s upcoming conference.

…Democratic presidential candidates see which way their party is going. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, and Julián Castro have all announced that they are boycotting AIPAC. So far, no prominent Democratic contender has said he intends to attend. The AIPAC boycott is obviously related to Ilhan Omar’s claim that American support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins,” followed by “AIPAC!” It’s Omar’s party now.

Just a few years ago, the idea of the Democrats turning anti-Israel en masse would have been unthinkable.

Actually, no, it was thinkable. In fact, it was bloody obvious… to anyone but a breathtakingly stupid and short-sighted leftist.

(4) Transvestites advocating violence against lesbians who don’t date transvestites.

• Today, do something for the environment and kill your local terf [Trans-Excluding Radical Feminist].

• you cant say “pun*h a t*rf” on twitter, but that doesn’t mean you cant do it in real life

• That TERF deserves a punch straight in the ovaries.
To which someone replied,
I’d pay to watch someone violently rip her ovaries from her abdomen

• …if you call yourself a lesbian except you’re only cool with girls with vaginas, YOU ARE SIDING WITH ANTI-TRANS RHETORIC.

• You’ve been a closted terf for while, but now you don’t even try to hide. Go choke on my dick you cunt.

Lesbians, bewildered to find themselves on the other end of the identity politics attack mob for once: “What?! But… but I’m BOTH female AND gay! Didn’t you hear that I’m female AND gay? I have lots of victim identity points! Why aren’t you respecting my victim points!?”

(5) Attack-mob asshole forced to eat the shit sandwich he helped make:

Kosoko Jackson, a gay black author writing about a gay black protagonist, gets taken down by the YA [young adult fiction] Twitterati.

Sourcebooks announced that A Place for Wolves, the debut YA novel by Kosoko Jackson, will be withdrawn from publication, at the request of the author.

Until recently, Kosoko Jackson’s website described him as “a vocal champion of diversity in YA literature, the author of YA novels featuring African American queer protagonists, and a sensitivity reader for Big Five Publishers.”

But Jackson was subjected to a Twitter attack mob due to some accusation of political incorrectness, and he was shamed and intimidated into withdrawing his book from publication.

Part of what makes this story so interesting is that Kosoko himself has been on the other side of these online attacks on authors.

He was outspoken during a particularly intense recent example, when a campaign based on misunderstanding and exaggeration led the author Amélie Zhao to take the unusual step of agreeing to cancel the publication of Blood Heir, her hotly anticipated debut novel…

And now the sadism mob he helped to create has destroyed him. Awww.

Leftists raise their heads, listening intently. “What’s that… What is that ominous bass note I’m hearing on the wind?”

It’s horror movie music, assholes. And the role you’re playing is… dinner.

C. S. Lewis and Clinical Narcissists

C. S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce is about a final split between all things heavenly and all things hellish.

It is told in first person, as an account of a dream. The narrator comes to his senses in a dreary town. The general mood of the inhabitants is quarrelsomeness. Later we learn that this is, of course, hell.

He gets into a conversation with someone who has been there longer, who mentions that he knows two people who journeyed to the house of Napoleon Bonaparte in hell.

“They went up and looked through one of the windows. Napoleon was there all right.”

“What was he doing?”

“Walking up and down— up and down all the time— left-right, left-right— never stopping for a moment. The two chaps watched him for about a year and he never rested. And muttering to himself all the time. ‘It was Soult’s fault. It was Ney’s fault. It was Josephine’s fault. It was the fault of the Russians. It was the fault of the English.’ Like that all the time. Never stopped for a moment. A little, fat man and he looked kind of tired. But he didn’t seem able to stop it.”

Does this remind you of anyone?

Try this:

“They went up and looked through one of the windows. She was there all right.”

“What was she doing?”

“Walking up and down— up and down all the time— left-right, left-right— never stopping for a moment. The two chaps watched her for about a year and she never rested. And muttering to herself all the time. ‘It was Comey’s fault. It was WikiLeaks’s fault. It was Pepe the Frog’s fault. It was the fault of the Russians. It was the fault of misogynists.’ Like that all the time. Never stopped for a moment. A little, fat woman and she looked kind of tired. But she didn’t seem able to stop it.”

Bolsonaro Wins!

I’m surprised by how little mention there has been on the right about Jair Bolsonaro’s win in Brazil.

The only righty who’s giving his win any prominent mention is Jim, here: https://blog.jim.com/party-politics/the-right-wins-in-brazil/ Vox Day hasn’t mentioned it at all (WTF?). Instapundit and Ace of Spades have each given it only one brief mention.

Heeellllllloooooooooo! This is huge!

Bolsonaro is described as “even worse than Trump” by the left. If the left describes him that way he must be good. And of course they’ve pulled out the usual “racist, sexist, homophobic,” etc.

Jim says:

His political program is on the face of it unremarkable: for gun rights, for family, against abortion, for capitalism, for God, for country, for secure property rights and in particular for secure property rights in land and houses, against crime and corruption.

So he’s for good stuff and against bad stuff. Well, that explains why the left hates him.

Bolsonaro’s victory means the rebellion against the disgusting left is gaining momentum. Of course that was already obvious, but now it has spread to three continents: North America (Trump), continental Europe and the UK (Brexit vote in the UK; too many encouraging events to mention on the continent), and now South America (Bolsonaro). And the most populous country in South America, by the way.

This encourages us and discourages the bad guys.

It makes life significantly more difficult for the globalists as they now have to spread themselves thinner over a larger set of adversaries. The game of whack-a-mole they have to play has just gotten significantly more complicated.

The left’s precious Overton Window continues to be smashed.

The preference cascade has grown. An entire nation of people just joined the chorus shouting “The Emperor’s not wearing any clothes!”

People who naturally are in sympathy with us but have been too intimidated to join in will now be less intimidated.

Fence-sitters who only care about being on the winning team have even more evidence that the momentum has shifted in favor of the good guys.

Another delightful feature of this: It shows that racial politics is not as simple as many had thought. Brazil is less white than the US, and they voted for a man who’s “more extreme than Trump, ZOMG!” …and by a wider margin: Bolsonaro won by more than 55% to 45%.

Slate is pricelessly going on suicide watch over the racial politics aspect of Bolsonaro’s victory: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/10/bolsonaro-brazil-election-lessons.html

Get ready for a schadenboner (ladies, get ready to get, er, schaden-wet).

Headline: Lessons From Brazil
Sub-head: A disturbing election shows that we can’t count on the lessons of history—or multiculturalism—to save democracy.

Translation: We thought that if we demographically replaced white people, we lefties would win. But oh no! That’s not guaranteed!

Some choice quotes:

“the biggest democracy in Latin America is now in mortal danger.”

LOL. Lefties are such assholes. Whenever they don’t win, they define it as “not democratic.” The left really does believe that “democracy” means “the left always wins.” That is, they ascribe no legitimacy to actual democracy.

PS: Eat shit, loser.

And “The danger to Brazil’s democratic institutions is very serious indeed.”

The dork draws “four important lessons” from Bolsonaro’s win, among them:

“The populist wave is still accelerating.”

Oh no! Politicians who appeal to the people are winning elections!

Sweet!

Another “lesson” (extended quotes in bold):

Countries don’t learn from their history

…Another election that took place on Sunday shows that Brazil is not the only country in which elites have long been too willing to assume that a dark past would somehow pave the way for a brighter future. When I traveled to Berlin to talk to some of Germany’s most senior politicians in the fall of 2016, at a time when the far-right Alternative for Germany already enjoyed double-digit support in many polls, nearly all of them assured me that Germans, well aware of the dangers of fascism, would never give the far-right the 5 percent they needed to enter the Bundestag. Less than 12 months later, they got 13 percent in federal elections held in September 2017, becoming the country’s third-strongest party.

Alternative for Germany’s streak of success has only continued since. Just this past Sunday, it took 13 percent of the vote in Hesse, a state that should provide them with less fertile hunting ground. Thanks to this latest victory, the party is now represented in every single state parliament in the country.

According to the left, if you don’t want to be gang-raped by hordes of invaders (put Cologne, New Year’s Eve into a search engine) you’re a “far-right extremist.”

Next “lesson”:

Authoritarian demagogues can thrive in diverse countries

Demography, it turns out, is not destiny.
We thought it was! We might not be as clever as we thought! Uh oh!

Particularly in the United States, many people equate authoritarian populism with xenophobia, and xenophobia with white people.
First of all, Fuck you. Secondly, notice how the demographic group that votes most consistently for small government is called the group that most supports authoritarianism. The left loves to do this: to assert the precise, exact opposite of the truth. It happens too often to be a coincidence; I think it’s some sort of lying fetish.

A candidate like Trump, they believe, can only appeal to a dwindling white majority running scared because it is about to lose its privileges.
Behold: “losing your country” is translated into left-speak as “losing your privileges.”

A surprisingly hopeful conclusion follows from this frightening premise: Because the United States—and many other countries around the world—are growing more diverse, the potential for authoritarian populists keeps shrinking. If only we get through the next few years, the good side will win the demographic race and triumph over the populists.

Bolsonaro’s success shows that this is simply not the case… Bolsonaro has managed to win well over half of the vote in a country that is already “majority minority.”

Looks like your side is in trouble!

NelsonHaHa

The same, I’m afraid, could easily be possible in the United States… a recent poll showed that more than four in 10 Latinos approve of his [Trump’s] performance in office.

HOW CAN THIS BE?! WE CALLED HIM RACIST! DIDN’T THEY HEAR US CALL HIM RACIST?!

In short, the rise of Bolsonaro shows that Brazilian democracy now faces an acute threat…
LOL, “democracy faces an acute threat” means “the left didn’t win.”

the populist wave continues to go strong; that we should not trust democratic messiahs to deliver us…

Note that in a moment of weakened focus, he inadvertently lets slip how he actually feels about democracy: “we leftists cannot trust democracy.”

Oops, be careful, dude! Your self-censorship algorithm glitched there for a second!

The people are going to continue to reject the totalitarians of the left, no matter how much you try to label the right totalitarians, authoritarians, etc. And the best thing about it is that you can’t stop yourselves. The holiness spiral that you’re caught up in forces you to be more extreme over time, even as the voters come to hate the extremism more and more.

You and your asshole leftist friends:

I’m melting, melting! Ohhhhh, what a world, what a world! Who would have thought that some little voters like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness!?

Lindsey Graham Applies His Boot to a Generous Helping of Left-Wing Ass

…and then rubs abrasive rock salt in their wounds by doing the most painful thing you can do to a leftist chick: He ignores her.

LindseyGrahamTrumpLike

It’s like she doesn’t exist.

The great thing about the photo is… well, everything.

One great thing about it is that you actually can’t tell if he is genuinely unaware of her existence, or if he is aware, but just deliberately ignores her. And the stylish adjusting of the tie… the complacently serene look on his face… She is utterly irrelevant to his world, as she yowls in well-deserved pain and/or a performative bid for attention. Fuck, that is priceless.

The instant I saw this already-iconic photo of Graham, I thought of this scene from the Bond movie Goldeneye (watch to the end to get the reference):

White leftists to minorities: “We will now explain you to you.”

In my previous post I triumphantly gloated over dispassionately observed the fact that the white leftists who recruited immigrants to displace white Americans, were suffering that fate themselves in the Democratic Party.

On that note, it has been delicious to see the panic in the upper ranks of leftist “thought leaders” at the victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the June 2018 Democrat primary in New York. She shoved out of the House of Representatives a white man, Joe Crowley, who had been in the House since 1999 and was often described as Nancy Pelosi’s presumptive successor as House Dem leader.

This was the funny part: Watching the white left-wing press desperately try to spin Ocasio-Cortez’s victory as due to her far-left politics— she’s a self-described socialist— and not her Hispanic ethnic identification. The New York Times and the rest of that gang have been desperately telling the voters in her district, “You voted for her because of her positions! You definitely didn’t vote for her because of her demographics! You like the socialist thing!” They’re trying the propaganda move of telling her voters why they voted for her and hoping they’ll be stupid enough to buy it.

Not so much, NYT. The minorities who voted for her know damn well why they voted for her. They are not going to listen to anyone— let alone whitey— telling them they actually voted for her for a different reason. (And how many of those voters do you think read the NYT or Washington Post anyway? Fucking LOL, bitchez.)

Minorities’ statements on Elizabeth Warren versus Kamala Harris in my previous post perfectly illustrate my point. Sorry, NYT, they’re not having it. Nice try.

Indeed, anyone who has ever tried this trick on a four-year-old knows it doesn’t work:

“Hey, want some carrots? You love carrots!”

Real-world response: “No I don’t.”

What we have here from white lefties is a desperate about-face, an attempt to stop their own narrative of “It’s minorities’ turn now!” from taking hold in the Dem party. The haute white lefties are terrified in the face of the developments which they themselves deliberately nurtured over the last half century.

Their reaction has been utterly delicious.

You can see the fear in their eyes.
