If Trump wins the election, and the objective data points suggest he will, the first presidential debate will be viewed by historians as a success. It accomplished what it was meant to do — drag Biden into street fight, and make him look weak and unhinged. @Barnes_Law
What the Ben Sharpio’s of the world don’t understand is that Trump’s debate strategy was never about persuading them. It’s about convicting the plumber in Bucks County that Biden is weak and unable to lead. @Barnes_Law
Biden needed to look presidential and in control. Instead, he took the bait and played at Trump’s level. Same strategic error Marco Rubio made during the primaries. You don’t beat Trump by fighting him on his terms. @Barnes_Law
If Trump takes @benshapiro’s bad debate advice, Trump will lose the Rust Belt. Ben is a smart guy, but he doesn’t understand ancestral history and current mindset of working class voters in places like Erie County. @Barnes_Law

Why in the hell is the SDNY prosecuting Steve Bannon??? Even if we assume Bannon committed a fraud -- which he did not -- the SDNY has no jurisdiction to prosecute the case. It's an unconstitutional abuse of venue. The Bannon matter has no legitimate connection to NY.
Bannon's Build the Wall was not based in NY, it didn't operate in NY, it wasn't organized in NY, it didn't bank in NY, and the wall was not being built in NY.
All SDNY can do is to point to a few donors in NY. But those NY donors *do not* complain about being defrauded. The SDNY is abusing the federal venue statutes.

THIS IS WHAT A HERO LOOKS LIKE:

Pictured is the female LASD Deputy after she and her partner were ambushed. She took ONE bullet to her jaw. Her partner was shot twice in the head. She was able to radio for help & apply first aid to her partner.

The NFL should STAND for her. 🇺🇸
She’s STANDING after being shot in the jaw. 🇺🇸

That requires a level of mental toughness the NFL kneelers will never know.

It’s weird how NBA players can look solely a degraded and shaky cell phone video shot a long distance away, and conclude the short video clip is incontrovertible proof that the police were brutal and racist. @ScottAdamsSays
The NBA’s Replay Center is impressive. Each play is captured by multiple HD cameras. When a replay is triggered, the center can quickly review every camera angle, make numerous video enhancements, and consult with a bevy of experts to determine if the ref made the right call.
Yet even with all those resources, NBA players still sometimes dispute the center’s final rulings on the video.

But they never dispute the conclusion that the cops were racist bullies on video. After all, the whole thing is on video, they say.

Radical Left absolves individuals of moral responsibility on the basis of race and treats them as victims of societal circumstance. As Latch wrote, the Radical‘s “Bigotry of Low Expectations” degrades victims by reducing them to mere objects of pity. @Barnes_Law
This problem is no more clear than in the context of officer-involved shootings: When a white man is killed by the cops, the Radicals apply high standards of respect and personal responsibility to the suspect.
But when a Black man is killed by the cops, the Radicals apply a less exacting standard. This is the “Bigotry of Low Expectations.”

- George Floyd

- Michael Brown

- Eric Garner

would be alive had they not resisted arrest. When you resist arrest, you foolishly gamble with your life.

If you lose the gamble, that’s on you.
For nearly a decade, the country has obsessed over how the cops can improve. Of course the cops can get better, but that’s only one half of the equation. These events are a two party transaction. — the officer and the citizen.
It’s past time that we focus on both sides of the coin. Why not try to make cops better while also trying to make citizens better? What the hell do we have to lose?
