Cammie, thank you- should have specified this is my understanding pertaining to American history where it did in fact become an ‘industry’. I’ll definitely read ( completely) what you shared and research it! Thanks again!

Critical Thinker CrystalMascall - "And, I didn’t even bring up the fact that the abortion industry- and, that is exactly what it is ; an industry was founded by a true racist." Little history lesson abortion for you to critically think about:

"WHEN DID ABORTION START?

Abortion isn’t a new concept. In fact, there is evidence of abortion taking place far in the past and from all around the world.

HISTORY OF ABORTION IN THE WORLD
Scholars have spent decades studying abortion and its history. What they’ve discovered is this: women have been having abortions for as long as they’ve been giving birth.

Biblical Era (Old Testament): Numbers 5:11- 31 states that, if a woman strays from her husband, he must bring her to the priest, who will serve her “bitter water that brings a curse.” Essentially condemning her to miscarry.
Ancient Egyptians: The Kahun Papyrus outlines the use of crocodile dung in a dough that is inserted into the vagina as a spermicide and to induce a miscarriage.
Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Europeans: A drug called pennyroyal was used in several ways, including as a culinary herb, a low dose birth control, a pest control and more. It was so popular that Aristophanes mentioned it in his play, “Lysistrata.” Pennyroyal was also mentioned as an efficient abortifacient in a text attributed to Cleopatra. It was used for centuries and grown in common household gardens, including those of the early American settlers.
China (3000’s BCE): Ancient China used mercury as a method of forcing a miscarriage. Their ancient handwritten texts also include 48 volumes with prescriptions for abortion.
America (the 1600s): African women, brought as slaves to the United States, were using cottonwood to abort as a result of rape, typically from slave owners. They also used “the savin from the juniper bush, pennyroyal, tansy, ergot, and Seneca snakeroot to abort pregnancies.”

HISTORY OF ABORTION IN AMERICA
From the 1600s up until the 1800s, abortion was completely legal in the United States. In fact, it was so widely practiced that it was advertised in papers and could be purchased from pharmacists, homeopaths, midwives, and even sent through the mail. In the U.S., abortion was legal before “quickening” (the point at which you can feel the fetus moving in the womb). Even the church remained unopposed to abortions at this point, believing it acceptable until “ensoulment” (also believed to be the point of quickening).

So, when did the view of abortion change from being a common, well-advertised practice into one fraught with disapproval, illegality, moral objections and stigma?

HISTORY OF ABORTION IN THE U.S.
America’s abortion history reaches back to long before it was considered illegal. It was common among slaves and settlers alike. What changed the perception of abortion wasn’t a matter of religion, but more of politics and discrimination.

FACTORS LEADING TO ABORTION ILLEGALIZATION
Discrimination was at the heart of the illegalization of abortion in America, as there was motivation in the medical community to gain control of and profit from such a popular procedure.

It’s complex, but there were many events that led to this. Here’s what was going on at the time:

Eugenics Movement (late 19th – early 20th centuries): Declining birth rate among Northern European settlers led to the government promoting the role of families and warning against “race suicide.” There was fear that incoming immigrants would soon dominate the population. In addition, capitalism relied on women’s work in lower-paying jobs (such as housemaids, fabric workers, caregivers, etc), and having a family was thought to keep them in more domestic roles.
Women’s Suffrage Movement (1840-1920): Starting around the 1860s, the women’s suffrage movement wasn’t just about voting, but a general push for economic and political equality for women. It resulted in an increase in the employment of women in America from 2.7 million to 7.8 million, as well as petitioning for their entry into universities, particularly Harvard for subjects such as gynecology. Denial of acceptance to top schools and programs forced women to create their own organizations and classes, which they positioned close to the Harvard campus and utilized the teachings of a few willing professors. Abortion was big business at the time and was regularly advertised in magazines, newspapers and by traveling salesmen who peddled birth control methods. However, as it was an issue directly to do with women’s bodies, it often fell to the women to act in the roles of caregivers, midwives, apothecaries, homeopaths, etc. Men (who dominated the medical community) began to worry about the rise of women’s suffrage, believing their jobs were in jeopardy."

CrystalMascall - No one is trying to stop you because no one cares what you have to say but you. I'm not pro-abortion or anti-abortion, I don't think anyone has any business in the choice but the people involved, the woman, the sperm donor, and her physician. You believe you have the right to your freedoms yet deny it for others.

3% of Planned Parenthood services are for abortion. 97% is providing reproductive services to women and men, to include treatment of STD's, cancer screenings, mammograms, and birth control.

We need to remember that division of Church and State, your God has no place in politics, otherwise it would be called a religion not a government.

Of course my comment wasn't a compliment and your reply tells me exactly what I deduced from your screed. You are free to believe whatever gets you through the day, you'll need it once all the walls start coming down around our ears.
CrystalMascall · November 3, 2020 at 8:39 am
Like Lincoln, we are going to ensure “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
(Praying)
CrystalMascall · November 2, 2020 at 11:45 pm
...and, your comment was tasteless. It feels like another attack on my freedom of speech; a tactic the “left” - I hate to share, is known for. I will speak up , for LIFE, for God, for ALL that is True and precious and honorable & you can’t stop me! I am free!
CrystalMascall · November 2, 2020 at 10:47 pm
Hi Jerome! I honestly haven’t read -in full, a single post of either of these men, however, I spoke out because I was leery of the bashing and attacks - at least, on Jefferson. I’m not sure if it was on this thread or another, however, he was given so much grief ( to put it kindly ) for simply speaking his mind! And, if I recall correctly, it wasn’t necessarily his post in full or link(s) - as I have not read anyone’s links here, it was when he was provoked by another member to share his personal views on abortion. Which he then nobly spoke up that he believed abortion was wrong. Which it is. I really admired his honesty and transparency and willingness to stand up for life (which we all should be doing )especially under the pressure. What kind of society are we not to protect our most vulnerable? And, most of the circumstances are preventable if we would step back - with common sense and ask ourselves, why don’t we abstain from sex so that we don’t find ourselves in such a predicament that is the natural outcome of sexual intercourse? And, if we do, why not accept- humbly the consequences of our actions? Children are a gift from the LORD! Where is a child’s right to life? Or right to choose life? And, I didn’t even bring up the fact that the abortion industry- and, that is exactly what it is ; an industry was founded by a true racist. It was a woman who did not want to see “black” people reproduce- so to speak. She wanted the beautiful “black” race to die. So abortion was born. And, still lives and breaths under the guise of “planned parenthood “.I could go on, but , just trying to give you the background. Jefferson also was not - at the time , pro trump or pro Biden, based on what I read from his responses. He was simply a man sharing his thoughts and feelings under the comments which we each have the right to do. But, he was attacked. And, I simply wanted to stand with him! Which I would have done the same for you! I’m sorry to disappoint you, but, I research for hours upon hours the issues here. I especially focus on videos and tapes of what individuals are really saying- not hearsay.And, not the mainstream media. My father was a brilliant highly intelligent compassionate man who worked for the government- for the most part as a contractor. So he taught me how to be a critical thinker, not take the mainstream news at face value and to seek the Truth. He was an honorable man with many high security clearances. He knew what he was talking about!;) So, as I wrote before, I haven’t looked at the links given here. I’m very confident in what I believe and understand based on the facts. And, I’m not saying everything about our President has been upright or honorable- I’m sad to share. I’m simply saying that the founding Fathers of our great country & nation recognized God! HE is the difference.. HE is the One that separates us from other nations; our recognition of Him and reverence of Him blesses us as a nation regardless of whether you like it or not or even believe it or not. And, I pray that you do not have to experience a world with out God’s blessing! Furthermore, the fact of the matter is that Trump has fought and acted in accordance with Gods will, fighting against abortion ( Life- basic human , God - given right), regulated immigration ( remember I shared I’m not just a third generation immigrant, I’m married to a first generation immigrant- which is another conversation) but, to give you some more perspective... Trump has done what he said he would do in maintaining the boundaries that define America the beautiful; Home of the free because of the brave! Also, we both know you didn’t mean your pigeoning-holing me as a compliment, however, I’m going to take it as one seeing that my nephew is a brilliant, intelligent, big hearted young man that has been diagnosed with autism!
Jerome Fields · November 2, 2020 at 11:02 am
CrystalMascall you believe Jeffersonian American? Does that also mean you believe Trump with his 20,000+ verifiable lies? JEFF is posting propaganda as is Gonearethedays from information rags.

Definition of a critical thinker: critical thinking
1. The ability to interpret argument, evidence, or raw information in a logical and unbiased fashion.
2. The ability to solve complex problems effectively.

This is more likely true in your case: dereistic thinking thinking not in accordance with the facts of reality and experience and following illogical, idiosyncratic reasoning. Used interchangeably with autistic thinking, although not an exact synonym: dereistic emphasizes disconnection from reality and autistic emphasizes preoccupation with inner experience. Called also dereism.

There aren't enough Traditional Americans left for a repeat of the 1972 and 1984 Historic Presidential Campaign Landslides, but the best we can do in the modern, Post Obama, Post-American Continent is building as we speak. New Age Americans are joining Traditional Americans to vote for President Trump as if their peace, prosperity, law and order and American Dreams are all on the line- because they are on Tuesday November 3rd.

Fair and balanced... you are absolutely right that we are free to have faith or not have faith.. sort of. The point I was trying to make to you is, if certain freedoms are already being encroached upon - even if it does not pertain to you , but, to your fellow man, what makes you believe your freedoms will not be encroached upon as well at some point?
Jeffersonian American · October 28, 2020 at 8:52 pm
Distinguished constitutional scholar Dr. Marshall DeRosa provides perhaps the best overview of the 2020 National Election and the enormous stakes involved:

The political chaos that has accompanied President Trump’s first term will not abate anytime soon. From the Russian Collusion hoax to rioting in the streets to the public policy responses to the Covid-19 so-called pandemic, there appears to be something afoot that does not bode well for the future. Whether the motivation is ideological, economic, official incompetence, or a toxic mix of all three, be prepared for chaos qua politics for the foreseeable future. Many are alarmed and have warned about an impending new civil war. The alarm is well warranted by the evidence.

Politics is essentially the struggle for power. The greater the power, greater the prize for those that capture it and greater the loss for those that don’t. The flipside of the cliché “to the victors goes the spoils/plunder” is “to the losers goes the losses/plundered”.

Machiavelli’s insight that the essence of politics is power, and the essence of power is violence is not to be dismissed because this is a “democracy”. Democracy or not, politics, power and violence are intricately intertwined. The violence may not always be visible, but it is always lurking behind the scenes available to the wielders of power against those not complying with their commands. The mere fact that it is available is its most useful quality.

The Confederacy learned this lesson the hard way. Neither the Constitution, a shared history, nor dialogue could stave off the violence that ensued when the opportunity and capacity converged to force compliance to the commands of the United States’ Government. The Confederacy’s defeat in 1865 marked a major turning point in American politics by setting the precedent for the widespread use of horrific violence by the US Government against fellow Americans. Shays and the Whiskey Rebellions were merely precursors of putting down pension and tax revolts. Whereas General Lee’s surrender at the Appomattox courthouse was the culmination of struggles between two competing visions for America, the Jeffersonian State’s Rights vision and the Hamiltonian national supremacy vision. The Hamiltonian vision was being imprinted in the American rule of law from the outset, as the Jeffersonian vision was being blinded by its willingness to play by those rules, e.g., Marbury v. Madison [judicial review], McCulloch v. Maryland [implied powers theory and legislative national supremacy] and Cohens v. Virginia [judicial national supremacy].

The vision thing is important. The 1860 election was the catalyst for the shooting war, preceded by a war of words over competing visions stretching back several generations. By 1860 the South’s Jeffersonian vision had already been rejected at the national level, despite John C. Calhoun’s best efforts to recover it.

The election of 2020 eerily resembles a war of words over competing visions, e.g., Capitalism properly understood versus Communism improperly understood. Similar to 1860, 2020 has a triumphant vision and it is not Capitalism properly understood.

Unlike the Capitalism (Trump) versus Communism (Biden) visions, the Jeffersonian and Hamiltonian visions shared a set of core principles that were not mutually exclusive. Those shared principles made dialogue and collaboration between the two camps possible. Jeffersonians and Hamiltonians agreed that the individual rights in the Declaration of Independence, such as life, liberty and property are inalienable, and that government is instituted to secure these rights. How to secure those rights via the consent of the governed in a State sovereignty federal system is where disagreement morphed into armed conflict in 1861.

Conflict between the heirs of the Jeffersonian and Hamiltonian visions was inevitable, as predicted by the Antifederalists in the 1787 Constitutional Convention. Because State sovereignty and national sovereignty are mutually exclusive, one vision will eventually concede to the other. The concession could be either voluntary or coerced. Four years of war settled, for the time being, the question. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · October 28, 2020 at 8:51 pm
(CONTINUED) The United States is currently on the verge of another paradigm shift over core principles. Unlike the Jeffersonians and Hamiltonians that shared important core values, the current competing visions are by and large mutually exclusive from the outset. The competing visions can be somewhat distinguished by contrasting two polar-opposite visions of what a just government is.

In 1792 James Madison wrote:

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.

In 1860 Democrats and Republicans would agree with Madison’s definition of “just government”. The intractable problem was slavery. The slave was a man entitle to fundamental rights, but the slave owner had a property right in the slave’s labor. Slavery notwithstanding, Republicans and Democrats agreed on the fundamentals.

The same is not true for 2020. There is a wide gulf between two opposing visions.

In 2019 Democrats in the 116th Congress passed a resolution “Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal” which is socialistic/communistic in its orientation. It reads in part,

Whereas the House of Representatives recognizes that a new national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal era is a historic opportunity to create millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States; (2) to provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States; and (3) to counteract systemic injustices: (1) it is the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal….

For the sake of argument, assume that the Democratic Party is controlled by factions determined to transform the United States into a Socialistic/Communistic nation, using the Green New Deal as a ruse to that end. [The Democratic Party’s endorsement of the Green New Deal should assist in making the assumption.] It would be naïve to think that if the opportunity and capacity converged, violence against the resistance would not be used. The application of violence could range from monetary fines, property confiscation, imprisonment and, if necessary, death for the most obstinate resisters.

If informed consent is absent, coerced compliance equals violence. A prerequisite of coercion is the power to coerce. For example, a person pays taxes because the potential consequences of not paying outweigh the pain of paying. Such a taxpayer has been coerced into paying taxes. If the government’s coercive powers to enforce the tax code is eliminated, compliance with the tax code would be on a voluntary basis. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · October 28, 2020 at 8:48 pm
(CONTINUED) Even if the Green New Deal were (the subjunctive tense is being used for an obvious reason) in the public interest, only an unjust government would implement it in the absence of the informed consent of the citizenry. The Green New Deal could not be implemented by a government whose only function is to protect private rights, including property rights. However, when those with power have the opportunity to force their policy preferences upon civil society, they will not be stopped by Madisonian principles or constitutional constraints. They will reinvent government accordingly.

The same was true for a State deciding to secede from the Union in 1861. Arguments about the constitutionality of secession were largely irrelevant in the Lincoln Administration. What made war possible was the accumulation of political power under Lincoln’s control whereby he could issue to the southern States the command YOU SHALL NOT SECEDE and coerce compliance. Lincoln reinvented the government from one based upon the consent of the several States to one designed to serve his policy aims, i.e., preserve the Union with or without the consent of the States.

If in the antebellum era the Democratic Party had the foresight to sufficiently remove the US Government’s power to invade the Confederacy, reconciliation between the sections would have been the outcome, either pre or post the secession movement. Lincoln’s reinventing efforts would have failed.

Such a justification for Lincoln’s war policies against the Confederacy is nonsense on stilts and well beyond the scope of this brief essay to address. Nevertheless, such rhetorical tricks are relevant. Substitute “slavery” with “global warming” and the end results are similar, i.e., the use of government violence to achieve a “greater” good.

The point of this essay is neither to analyze the peculiar institution nor climate change, but to sound the alert that these United States of America are in the final stages of a genuine American civil war. Current public policy issues, whether high conflict, low conflict, high salient or low salient, are not of primary importance. What is of primary importance is the locus and extent of political power.

The radical Left is on the verge, if not in this election certainly within a few more election cycles, to control the levers of national power. And once they possess the requisite power, the Green New Deal will be front and center. As was the case in 1861, core foundational governing principles are at stake. One plausible way to avert the fate of the Confederacy would be to incorporate into the US Constitution the governing principles underpinning the Constitution of the Confederate States of America, bringing the current US Constitution more in line with the principles of 1776.

Of course, it is those very principles that the Deep State and the radical Left despise. However, if those principles were controlling there would be no Deep State or an empowered Left on a national scale. True, some States would have their respective deep states and an empowered radical Left, but that’s regional, not national in scope. In a Union organized along Confederate principles, California and Alabama could coexist in a confederated relationship, as did Massachusetts and Alabama in the 1820s.

To follow are some Confederate constitutional provisions which if amended into the US Constitution would hamper the radical Left and impending paradigm shift:

1. To lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts, and excises for revenue, necessary to pay the debts, provide for the common defense, and carry on the Government of the Confederate States; but no bounties shall be granted from the Treasury; nor shall any duties or taxes on importations from foreign nations be laid to promote or foster any branch of industry; and all duties, imposts, and excises shall be uniform throughout the Confederate States. Article I, section 1).

2. State legislatures by a two-thirds vote could impeach any federal judge or officer within the State (Article I, section 5).

3. Congress shall appropriate no money from the Treasury except by a vote of two-thirds of both Houses, taken by yeas and nays, unless it be asked and estimated for by some one of the heads of departments and submitted to Congress by the President . . . (Article I, section 9). (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · October 28, 2020 at 8:46 pm
(CONTINUED) 4. All bills appropriating money shall specify in Federal currency the exact amount of each appropriation and the purposes for which it is made; and Congress shall grant no extra compensation to any public contractor, officer, agent, or servant, after such contract shall have been made or such service rendered (Article I, section 10).

5. Every law, or resolution having the force of law, shall relate to but one subject, and that shall be expressed in the title (Article I, section 20).

6. President elected for a six-year term, not re-eligible (Article II, section 2).

7. Upon the demand of any three States, legally assembled in their several conventions, the Congress shall summon a convention of all the States . . . (Article V).

8. Preamble: We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America.

One through five would make the national government’s budgeting and appropriating process more transparent, accountable to the States and fiscally responsible.

Number six would enhance the executive functions of the President, especially in conjunction with the two-thirds qualification of number four infra.

Number seven would enhance federalism, along the lines of John C. Calhoun’s concurrent majority.

Number 8 explicitly acknowledges State sovereignty, the implicit right of State secession and a compact theory of government, i.e., not a national democracy, with Almighty God keeping a watchful eye on the parties to the compact.

In summary, there is much to be learned from the Confederacy’s experience. The key lesson to be learned is that in the final analysis it’s all about power. The Founding Generation understood this well, and placed constraints on political power through a written constitution stipulating separation of powers, checks and balances, a Bill of Rights and federalism. The framers of the CSA Constitution learned from experience and supplemented their constitution with additional checks. In both cases the parchment barriers were unable to check the abuse of power, more so in the former than the latter.

Another lesson to be learned was the South’s failure to meet danger on the frontier, as admonished by the great Southern statesman John C. Calhoun. Had the South been more proactive in its defense of States rights in the 1840s and 50s, America would have been spared the horrors of an internecine war.

Those two lessons can be combined into one: Proactively limit the powers of the US Government, because within the not too distant future the radical Left will be in control of the that government. The Left’s plans/threats to pack SCOTUS with radical Left justices speaks volumes.

With that in mind, consider three options open to defenders of the principles of 1776 post the 2020 election. Option 1: Degrade the radical Left’s power to impose its agenda once it controls the national government, particularly in regard to preventing secession. Option 2: Fail to degrade centralized power and put up a futile resistance to a Leftist controlled national government. Option 3: Submit to the radical Left and its agent the national government.

Option 3 seems to be the most plausible in the wake of a Biden victory, as is evidenced by his support in the electorate and the ruling class. Whereas a Trump victory would buy time to operationalize aspects of Option 1, as is evidenced by Trump’s willingness to engage in battle against the Deep State, globalists and his support for Middle America values.

History may not repeat itself, but in the words of Mark Twain it certainly rhymes. Similar to Horatius single-handedly holding back the Etruscan army, Trump is holding back the Deep State and radical Left yelling to patriots “Then at least chop the bridge down while I hold them off alone.” Either start “chopping”, option 1 or secession if necessary, or wait for the inevitable Option 3.

It’s interesting that somehow you come to that conclusion when the fact of the matter is Biden has been in office for over 40 years- think it’s 47 to be exact? And, there is not much to show for it. This is not something that needs to be researched even. Then, from his own lips in the days leading up to this point, he has said he went to a college he didn’t. He said- most recently he was going against ‘George’ instead of Trump. Even more recently he said that ‘he is Harris’ running mate’. Shall I go on? I haven’t even mentioned the real possibility that his present wife may have been married when they began a relationship, the real corruption coming about - not just his sons dealings, but his connection to them WHILE in office as the Vice President....

Any generic academic fact checker shreds them as being right wing propaganda, hence removing any validity that they would hold up. Fox News also is not news, it is registered as an entertainment station while cspan, msnbc, CNBC, and cnn are all still listed as news outlets, so do with that information what you may. So you can continue to post the link as if it is going to validate any of the baseless claims that you are making, but everyone here is well aware of the misinformation that you are trying to spread
Jeffersonian American · October 28, 2020 at 10:44 am
Mr. Engels, of course AMERICAN THINKER, GATEWAYPUNDIT.COM and other conservative sites are among the most reliable World Wide Web sites today for their current events news commentary and investigative journalism reporting articles.

But don't take my word for it- just read the following link and view the linked videos provided below in the MASSIVE news story coverage from last night's Tucker Carlson live interview with Mr. Tony Bobulinski. Writing at AMERICAN THINKER, Andrea Widburg notes Bobulinski is an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. After leaving the Navy, Bobulinski became an international businessman whose expertise led to Hunter Biden and his people wooing Bobulinski to give them the business expertise they needed to get their partnership up and running. In the links below, Bobulinski powerfully confirms that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the transaction, which had its beginnings when Joe was still Vice President.

The partnership, SinoHawk, was intended to bring together CEFC and the Biden family. Both Hunter and James Biden, after all, brought nothing to the table other than their last name and, with it, the promise that China would have access to political influence at the highest level of American government. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · October 28, 2020 at 10:43 am
(CONTINUED) Bobulinski’s name recently became public knowledge when James Gilliar, another businessman working on SinoHawk, sent an email to Tony Bobulinski, setting out the terms Gilliar had been negotiating with CEFC. What caught everyone’s interest was the statement that Hunter would hold “10[%] for the Big Guy.” Bobulinski confirmed that Joe Biden was the “Big Guy.”

At this point, Schiff, the media, and Joe Biden, none of whom ever denied the legitimacy of the email, claimed that the whole thing was a Russian smear. This unfounded accusation got Bobulinski’s dander up. As a naval officer from a military family and a true patriot, being smeared as a Russian agent was beyond the pale.

Bobulinski demanded that Schiff retract the insult and, when Schiff failed to do so, he went public and did a full document dump. Bobulinski had saved everything – every document, every email, and every text.

That’s the quick background to the interview with Carlson, during which Bobulinski said that:

Hunter and James Biden brought nothing to the deal other than the Biden family name; What China wanted was the Biden family name; Joe Biden was involved in the business deal, so much so that he had veto power over negotiations; In 2017, Bobulinski met Joe Biden twice when the Biden side of SinoHawk was courting him to step in and act as CEO; Bobulinski also spoke at length with James Biden, Joe’s brother; When Bobulinski asked James how they could get away with this kind of deal, which seemed to be falling into dangerous territory given that Joe could run again for president, James announced, “plausible deniability,” and The Biden group stiffed Bobulinski, leaving him out of pocket for all his expenses while channeling CEFC’s money into another entity that did not involve Bobulinski.

If we had a decent media, this story would be on every front page and at the top of every news hour. Instead, Bobulinski is trying desperately to get Americans to know that he is not a Russian agent and that Joe Biden was in bed with the Communist Chinese government, starting when he was Vice President and continuing after he left the White House.

(As an aside, and separate from the Bobulinski interview, a former CIA operations office believes it’s entirely possible that Biden was already doing China’s bidding in 2012, when the Obama administration gave China free rein in the South China Sea).

Author Widburg provides the embedded videos from the FOXNEWS Tucker Carlson investigative reporting interview with Bobulinski, and concludes:

We’ve always known Joe Biden is an odd bird. Just think of the lies, the egotistical boasting, the offers to fight people, the skinny dipping, and the way he fondles and sniffs little girls. He is a genuinely creepy man.

It speaks volumes about Washington D.C. and the Democrat party that Joe spent 47 years in the Swamp and rose to the second-highest office in the land. What we’ve learned now, though, irrefutably and without any Russian hokum, is that Joe Biden is also a profoundly corrupt man who willingly sold out America and her allies to enrich himself and his sleazy, incompetent family.

This is required reading and viewing for ALL THINKING AMERICANS before they vote this year, Mr. Engels. EVERYTHING WE HOLD DEAR ABOUT AMERICA AND OUR NATION AS ORIGINALLY FOUNDED IS ON THE LINE IN THIS 2020 NATIONAL ELECTION- A POINT OF NO RETURN IF BIDEN AND THE CACKLING, DISHONEST COMMITTED MARXIST KAMALA HARRIS WAITING TO QUICKLY REPLACE AN INCAPACITATED PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN ARE EVER ELECTED TO REMOVE OUR LIBERTIES, OUR BILL OF RIGHTS, OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OF THE FOUNDERS, AND MOST ASPECTS OF OUR AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE TO FREELY PURSUE LIFE, LIBERTY AND HAPPINESS.

My fellow Americans, the documented historic evidence from the past 47 years and the swiftly mounting more recent documented evidence against China Joe Biden is damning and overwhelming.

Biden, the Leftist Old Media and the Leftist Tech Giant Censors do not want you to believe your own eyes.

Of course, Biden is the one who is lying, as leaked emails have revealed deep levels of corruption and homemade porn of his son smoking crack with prostitutes and possibly his own underage niece is all over the internet.

But each passing day we have more – much more damaging revelations.

Hunter Biden sent now published texts to a family friend where he shares that someone is accusing him of being sexually inappropriate around her daughter. This is why Hunter claims he is not allowed to be alone with that person. In another text message from Hunter to a family friend, Hunter shares that his mother, Jill Biden, propagates the claims that Hunter is sexually inappropriate around the children and VP Joe Biden is aware as well. In a text message sent to Hunter Biden from his Uncle Jim Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s brother, Uncle Jim shares that both he and former VP Joe Biden are upset with accusations of impropriety but they don’t believe them. Jim and Joe Biden want to discuss with Hunter so they can all get their stories straight. In an email to colleague and fellow board member on Burisma, the now felon Devon Archer, Hunter explains how he is not allowed to be around a certain person without his father, Joe Biden, being there. And a fifth text message shows Hunter explaining to a certain person that her mom told former VP Joe Biden that she would call the police if Hunter tried to see that person.

These texts paint a horrible picture of what is going on behind the scenes in the Biden family.

What the hell was going on in the Biden household? If a minor was involved, why did no one contact the police? Why was this hidden from the public? Was this because it would tarnish Joe Biden's political image? Most importantly, is the child safe now?

Vice President Biden, this is no lie. It’s not coming from President Trump. This is not Russian disinformation. It’s coming from your nuclear family.

Sickeningly, there is much more to come out- just read any number of the conservative news journalism sites that are reporting the actual news and facts emerging from this case.

The American people need to put an end to this Democrat Madness at the polls- and vote Republican as if you and your family's future, freedoms and American Dream depend on it on or before Election Day- because in this 2020 Election, it actually does.

Steve McCann observes our nation stands on the cusp of the third and perhaps most notable political realignment in the past 160 years, as those on both sides of the political spectrum recognize that the 2020 election has evolved into a watershed moment in American history- and as Donald Trump is poised to become among the most transformative Presidents in American history.

Here is just one source, but there are many, many others:

9 minutes is not enough time to watch the whole video. If you watch it in its entirety & have the same opinion, so be it! But, calling it a ‘wacko video’ without even watching it completely...!! And, how do you know they are poor? Where is that idea even coming from? Again, 9 minutes is not enough time to complete the video and complete research on each individual represented. I’m not trying to be hurtful in any way with what I’m about to write/ share, but, since it is a comment box, it doesn’t seem to me you really understand much about the First Amendment or what’s going on in the real world. Factually speaking, it is our Democratic governor here in Va that shut down our churches illegally. Government has no right to get in the way of our God given freedom to worship! Also, in many states but California - especially, churches have not only been ordered to shut down, but, threatened with jail, fines etc. ( Again) May God bless you Fair and Balanced, but your not only deceived to believe if Biden were to take office our- your freedoms would be honored, but, your deceiving others with the ‘fair and balanced’ title when you’ve stated in these forums your true motive is to get people to vote either Democrat or Biden. Lastly, your perfectly mimicking and representing the party( unfortunately). I strongly urge you- for real, with all due respect, to take a step back and check yourself! I pray you come to terms with what your doing and who or what it is your standing with. Our beautiful country was founded on principles. I could go on, but, simply put we must embrace the Truth or everything beautiful we have ever known will be lost. It really is more than a political issue at this point. You have been warned! A wise woman once said “ the worst thing you can get is what you want!”. God cannot be mocked! 7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for (J)whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap (K)everlasting life. 9 And (L)let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap (M)if we do not lose heart.

What a sick, sick family of Democrat supporters in our local community posting below.

Joe Biden claims he can protect all us American citizens but he can’t even protect his own granddaughter- the female/girl in the video, his niece Natalie; and that in turn makes it child pornography because she's not of age.

Unbelievable. Crack, child porn, incest, political corruption, bribery. How on God's Earth is Joe Biden still a candidate? If Joe Biden had any shred of decency remaining, he would bow out and hope no more would come out. Now we know why he is staying in his basement- avoiding even his own Radical Left Media, he is trying to come up with something that will explain this... of course, there is nothing good under the sun which can explain or justify any of this:

GTV is Taiwanese and are anti-CCP. They are against the Chinese Communist Party.

GTV makes it very clear with a message at the end the video that the Chinese Communist Party has a lot more blackmail material than this on Biden, and that is how the Chinese Communist Party controls Democrat Party politicians to get them to do China's bidding.

The New Hampshire Union Leader, a conservative-leaning newspaper, has endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden for president, despite its century-long history of backing Republicans. In backing Biden, the newspaper endorsed its first Democratic candidate in over 100 years.

"Building this country up sits squarely within the skill set of Joseph Biden. We have found Mr. Biden to be a caring, compassionate and professional public servant," the Union Leader editorial board wrote on Sunday. "He has repeatedly expressed his desire to be a president for all of America, and we take him at his word."

Demosthenes: Apparently it didn't look legitimate enough to the person who actually wrote it.

"The New York Post’s front-page article about Hunter Biden on Wednesday was written mostly by a staff reporter who refused to put his name on it, two Post employees said.

Bruce Golding, a reporter at the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid since 2007, did not allow his byline to be used because he had concerns over the article’s credibility, the two Post employees said, speaking on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation.
...
Many Post staff members questioned whether the paper had done enough to verify the authenticity of the hard drive’s contents, said five people with knowledge of the tabloid’s inner workings. Staff members also had concerns about the reliability of its sources and its timing, the people said.

The article named two sources: Stephen K. Bannon, the former adviser to President Trump now facing federal fraud charges, who was said to have made the paper aware of the hard drive last month; and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, who was said to have given the paper “a copy” of the hard drive on Oct. 11."

RUNNING LIKE A RABBIT!

President Donald Trump abruptly ended a solo interview with CBS News' "60 Minutes" Tuesday and did not return for an appearance he was supposed to tape with Vice President Mike Pence, according to multiple sources familiar with what happened.

After camera crews set up at the White House on Monday, Trump sat down with host Lesley Stahl for about 45 minutes on Tuesday before he abruptly ended the interview and told the network he believed they had enough material to use, according to two sources.

"He said, 'You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.' He said that"!

A coalition of former intelligence officials issued a joint letter condemning a recent smear campaign against Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, saying it appeared to have the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign meant to influence the upcoming election.

The group includes former director of national intelligence James Clapper, former CIA directors Mike Hayden, Leon Panetta and John Brennan, and dozens of other former deputy directors and senior officials of American intelligence agencies.

“Each of us believes deeply that American citizens should determine the outcome of elections, not foreign governments,” the group wrote in a letter first obtained by Politico. “It is for all these reasons that we write to say that the arrival on the U.S. political scene of emails purportedly belonging to [former] Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, much of it related to his time serving on the Board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

“If we are right,” they continued, “this is Russia trying to influence how Americans vote in this election, and we believe strongly that Americans need to be aware of this.”

Florida's Latino voters being bombarded with right-wing misinformation, advocates say.

Misinformation and conspiracy theories swirling around the 2020 presidential race are reaching an "alarming" number of Latino voters in Florida through Spanish language social media sites, advocacy groups and elected officials said.

The experts voiced concern that the barrage of misleading messages about presidential candidate Joe Biden and the coronavirus, often containing right-wing conspiracy theories, could swing the state vote.

Advocates pointed to Republicans and President Donald Trump as some of the sources of disinformation flooding Latinos' social media feeds.

So Hunter Bidens computer gives evidence that Joe Biden was taking money from Ukraine in exchange for firing the prosecutor. Isn't what they impeached Trump for investigating? Humm.....

And now Joe goes back into his basement for a week and refuses to answer any questions about it.

A simple denial is all we ask Joe!

You libbies going to apologize for the fake impeachment now?
