2020: Trump ripped the Biden Crime Family in this speech to senior citizens in Fort Myers, Florida.

2020: Trump vs. Biden town halls – I didn’t watch either one and, after blogging about the local rally, I find I have no appetite for listening to clips.

So far as I can tell, the tweet above summed them up accurately. No surprise. (Stephanopolous moderated Biden’s; Guthrie did Trump’s.)

2020: Joe Biden is a serial liar – Many of the lies he has spewed have been boastful exaggerations about his own past. E.g., claiming he was first in his law school class when in fact he had been at the bottom.

But at least one of his lies demeans the reputation of a good man who isn’t even alive to defend himself. According to Joe Biden, his first wife and infant daughter were killed by a drunk driver.

A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly — and I never pursued it — drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly and killed my daughter instantly and hospitalized my two sons.”

This is not true. In December of 1972, Biden’s first wife, Neilia, caused the accident when she drove into the path of Curtis Dunn’s tractor-trailer. Dunn overturned his rig trying to avoid the Biden vehicle. Police filed no charges against Dunn and said alcohol had not been involved.

ACB: Inspiring testimony [2:15].

BACK THE BLUE: “Saying somebody in the leg is just wrong and shows an incredible lack of understanding of defensive firearms.” [6:22] – At Thursday’s town hall, Joe Biden said that when confronted with deadly force, police officers should “shoot ’em in the leg.”

The reasons given in the video for not aiming for a leg include that it’s very hard to hit such a small target, especially when it’s moving. Even if you do hit someone in the leg, it rarely stops them. And if you hit the femoral artery or shatter the femur, they’re very likely to die anyway.

If it’s serious enough to shoot someone, then a high center mass shot is the best option.

CATHOLIC: [7:13] – Bishop Athanasius Schneider says, “Today the Church of Rome finds herself in a similar situation of spiritual collapse, due to the spiritual torpor of a majority of the Shepherds of the Church, the excessive absorption of the Pope himself in temporal affairs, and his efforts to bring about the rebirth of a universal aspiration to a this-worldly and naturalistic fraternity.”

The full interview is posted at the link.

CHILD ABUSE: At Thursday’s ABC News town hall, Joe Biden was asked what he would do to protect people like her daughter, an 8-year-old who thinks she’s a boy.

Biden answered, “There should be zero discrimination.”

Psychologist Debra Soh has written, “Waiting until a child has reached cognitive maturity before making these sorts of decisions would make the most sense. But this is an unpopular stance, and scientists and clinicians who support it are vilified, not because science—which should be our guiding beacon—disproves it, but because it has been deemed insensitive and at odds with the current ideology.”

COOKIE SURVEY: A Pennsylvania bakery that makes candidate-specific cookies say their sales have predicted the presidential winner in the past three elections.

“Trump 2020” cookies are three times as popular as “Biden 2020” cookies.

CORNELL: Far above Cayuga’s waters, there’s an awful smell … of putrid wokeness. The overly educated, never-had-real-jobs libtards “teaching” at Cornell University have decided that “English Department” is extremely racist, so they’re renaming it the “Department of Literatures in English.”

I took a graduate course in education while I was attending the Home of the Big Red. The professor was reputedly a leader in the field. I’ve never forgotten the day he told us, “If schools had ever done their jobs properly, they’d all be closed by now.

I wanted to pass the damn class, so I didn’t say what I was thinking, which was that schools graduate the students they’re done with. But the schools themselves need to stay open because there are always new, younger students who need what they have to offer.

But hey, I didn’t have a Ph.D. in Education like he did … so maybe there was some subtle point I missed about his position. Or not.

HUNTER BIDEN: The New York Post revealed another piece of their Hunter Biden email stash showing that while Joe was Obama’s VP, his son pursued lucrative deals with a Shanghai-based conglomerate called CEFC China Energy Co.

One email sent to Biden on May 13, 2017, with the subject line “Expectations,” included details of “remuneration packages” for six people involved in an unspecified business venture. (Graphic above.)

Another email — sent by Biden as part of an Aug. 2, 2017, chain — involved a deal he struck with then-chairman of CEFC, Ye Jianming, for half-ownership of a holding company that was expected to provide Biden with more than $10 million a year.

Biden wrote that Ye had sweetened the terms of an earlier, three-year consulting contract with CEFC that was to pay him $10 million annually “for introductions alone.”

At the ABC News town hall on Thursday, moderator George Stephanopoulos did not ask Joe “Pops” Biden a single question about the controversy. But on Friday, a CBS News reporter asked him for a response to the New York Post story.

I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask,” Biden snapped.

MANSPLAINING: Remember when the Slime Stream Media got all hot and bothered about Mike Pence interrupting Kamala Harris at the VP debate.

Gee, big surprise (not), they have a double standard on the subject when the woman being interrupted in a conservative.

MORE EMAILS: Breitbart is breaking news about Hunter Biden emails obtained from a former business associate, Bevan Cooney, who turned them over to Breitbart reporter Peter Schweizer.

The emails lay out in detail how the Vice President’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House. Among these meetings was a private, off-the-books meeting between then-VP Biden and a delegation of Chinese investors and Communist Party officials.

GRAMMY NOTES: I’m so thankful for my dear Hubby, who was born 71 years ago today.
