Liberal Logic Update
The liberal Dems play a disgusting game.
They fabricate stories about conservatives yet they not only ignore but also protect liberal figures when they are accused of wrongdoing.
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday that Democratic senators who believed sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh shouldn’t want to be Joe Biden’s running mate, claiming there is more evidence for an assault claim against Biden as a sitting senator in the 1990s than there were for claims against Kavanaugh from his youth.
“These Democratic senators believed Christine Blasey Ford’s claim against Justice Kavanaugh, yet there’s more evidence to support Tara Reade’s claim of sexual assault against Joe Biden,” Cotton wrote in a Sunday tweet. “How could they possibly agree to be VP under those circumstances?”
Many have compared Democrats’ reaction to the allegation against Biden with their reaction to the allegations against Kavanaugh, noting that Democrats were quick to condemn Kavanaugh after he was first accused but have barely mentioned the accusation against Biden. And the highest-profile members of the party have commented on it typically only when prompted by the media.
The allegations against Biden are leveled by Tara Reade, who said she was a staff assistant for Biden in 1993 when he was in the Senate.
Ya gotta love this guy!
His only leaders are “God and President Donald Trump.”
In Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has ordered the state’s gun stores to close because of the coronavirus crisis. That doesn’t concern John “Mr. Gunrunner” Costa, however.
You don’t get a nickname like that without a dedication to the Second Amendment, and Costa certainly delivers.
Not only is he not afraid of Massachusetts functionaries trying to close his store, he says that his only leaders are “God and President Donald Trump.”
In a talk with MassLive (a “brief interview before hanging up,” natch), the owner of The Gunrunner LLC (again, natch) explained he has no intention of complying with the “insane socialist governor” and his order, saying they’ll have to “drag” him out of his store.
“That guy is an idiot. He’s a liar. He’s a RINO [Republican In Name Only],” the Middleborough firearms dealer said.
“And I’ll tell you something right now, the attorney general has her hand so far up his butt that she can actually move his mouth. So no, I will not comply to this insane socialist governor. And that’s why I won’t close.”
Costa noted that most states are respecting the Second Amendment and designating gun shops as “essential.” This is particularity important given the fact that gun sales are at record highs, likely due to the uncertainty COVID-19 has presented and the potential of not getting police protection if things take a turn for the worse.
“I will stick to my guns. I will stick to the Constitution which gives me every damn right to stay open,” Costa said. “My boss, I have two leaders, God and Trump. No one else.”
Tell how it is “Mr. Gunrunner” Costa!
Berkshire Hathaway chairman is handling the COVID-19 crisis in much the same way as he did the Great Recession
As the coronavirus crisis unfolds, many are asking: Where is Warren Buffett? They want to hear and see more from America’s most literary and famed investor, noted for both calm and prowess in times of distress. People know the current crisis is more acute than any in living memory, including the 2008-09 financial crisis, and would welcome more clarity from the “Oracle of Omaha.”
We don’t have to wait long: On Saturday, May 2, Buffett will host the annual meeting of his company, Berkshire Hathaway BRK.A, +0.64% , BRK.B, +0.50% fielding questions from journalists and shareholders.
For starters, those who interpret Buffett’s perceived silence as an ominous sign should consider a few points. First, Buffett has been as vocal during this crisis as he has been in others — and his tune has not changed. For instance, on February 24,, as the pandemic gathered lethal force, Buffett sat for an interview with Becky Quick of CNBC. He called the pandemic “scary stuff,” but said it does not alter his long-term outlook or approach — disciplined fundamental business analysis remains vital.
In the current crisis, many yearn for the soothing reassurance from Buffett they recall reading early in the last one. On October 17, 2008, Buffett penned an op-ed in The New York Times, a cheerleading piece for the national economy called “Buy American—I Am.”
As for the lack of headlines today concerning Buffett’s investment activity, concerned observers recall how Berkshire made numerous opportunistic investments early in the 2008-09 crisis.
Despite the greater acuteness of today’s crisis, Buffett does not appear to be rattled by it. Perhaps this is because, catastrophic and unprecedented as the medical and economic havoc may be, such catastrophe did not come as a complete surprise to him.
People have long dubbed Buffett the “Oracle of Omaha,” a moniker that still fits. The upshot for Berkshire may remain the same too, as he continued his 2019 message:
“When such a mega-catastrophe strikes, Berkshire will get its share of the losses and they will be big — very big. Unlike many other insurers, however, handling the loss will not come close to straining our resources, and we will be eager to add to our business the next day.”
Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door, jump right out and count to four!
On April 5, WWII veteran Guy Whidden decided to have his head shaved into a mohawk “as a tribute to his fallen comrades,” as well as to brighten people’s day during the COVID-19 pandemic.
96-year-old Whidden, 502nd Infantry Parachute Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division during the Second World War, enlisted his granddaughter Lydia to cut his hair, and film it for social media.
“I would like to have my hair cut as a mohawk haircut that we cut for D-Day in France and also in Holland as a tribute to all the fallen airborne guys up in the skies,” Whidden states at the beginning of the video. “I would like to thank and challenge all of you past, present, and future airborne people … I challenge all of you, and it’s something we can do during this present problem that we have that will be solved shortly.”
Among the comments below the video, commenter Tom Cowlishaw offered praise to WWII veterans:
“WW2 vets, in my opinion, are some of the most heart warming, positive, thoughtful people. They went through such horrors, yet they’ve come out the other side almost as if they’re blessed,” Cowlishaw wrote. “I don’t know how they seem so positive after all they saw, but I find it very endearing and [it] reminds me how lucky we all are today, to not have had to have gone through what they did. Thank you, sir, for your service, for allowing us all to be free at the expense of years of your own freedom.”
After the video was uploaded to YouTube, Lydia posted a follow-up on Facebook showing various military men taking part in the “Mohawk Challenge.”
