  • Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein praised China Thursday as a country “growing into a respectable nation.”
  • She also cautioned against holding the country accountable for the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Her comments come despite the country’s ongoing human rights violations putting Muslims in camps.

Dianne Feinstein, as in you can not have firearms, but my body guards can have assaulting weapons... in her own words:


Complete parroting of the CCP line "CCP pulled Chinese people out of poverty.." when in fact they were the one's who put them there in the first place...

FYI - more on Dianne Feinstein and her being compromised by the CCP and it's Soft Power ( i.e. basically bought by the CCP )

Certainly there is a more nuanced view of Dianne.. but the truth of the matter is that you can not count on her to be honest with regards to the China issues.

Husband invested in China as Feinstein pushed trade
LANCE WILLIAMS, OF THE EXAMINER STAFF Published 4:00 am PDT, Sunday, October 22, 2000

An investment fund backed by the husband of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinste in pumped millions of dollars into firms doing business in China while Feinstein was boosting expanded trade between China and the United States, The Examiner has learned.

Feinstein has denied that her husband, San Francisco financier Richard C. Blum, has investments in China.

In May, before she voted for a measure that normalized trade with China, she said through a spokesman that Blum had divested of his last holdings in mainland China in 1999.

In response to queries for this story, Blum said he had earmarked some China assets for charity and sold others, one as recently as August. ..




Here is her husband:

..
the New Yorker breathlessly reported in a 2015 profile that China’s former President Jiang Zemin had spent Thanksgiving as a guest at the Blum-Feinstein home in San Francisco—reveals the extent to which the American elite has subscribed wholesale to the unproven theory that business with the Chinese Communist Party was good for America.

I'm pretty much aligned with Biden in that respect-- no I do not support defunding police departments. I do however support a review to determine how law enforcement budgets are formulated. The police are often put in positions-- domestic disputes for example, where there might be a better initial response than squad cars. I've read that cops have more issues in responding to domestic abuse that just about any other "typical" crime. I don't blame them. I've ridden with cops who were put in that position and it was pretty scary. You just never know what you're up against. While not a domestic dispute, a State Trooper relative of mine was shot and killed during what started out as a simple traffic stop. Walk a mile in any officer's shoes to start to understand what their life is about.

I also think BLM supporters have missed an opportunity to help their cause but not pointing out that there's a helluva lot of cops-- a majority even-- who are not racist and are out there risking their lives and just trying to do their jobs. Painting all cops with the same broad bush is simply not realistic.
The BLM wants the police defunded. You said you support the BLM. Biden stated that he would accept police funding to be reallocated. Sounds to me like you are trying to have it both ways.

Seattle Launches Investigation After Supply Van Full Of Weapons Found Trailing Behind Rioters

On Wednesday, Best told reporters that officers saw a van following a group of protesters around 4:30 p.m. Saturday, before it stopped outside the East Precinct. At about the same time, she said, explosions started going off outside the precinct.

Best said a witness later told police they had seen baseball bats and explosives inside the same van earlier in the day.

Police later impounded the van and, after obtaining a search warrant, discovered firework pyrotechnics, smoke bombs, stun guns, bear and pepper spray, makeshift spike strips and gas masks, Best said…

Seattle Police Sgt. James Lee, who works with the department’s arson/bomb squad, said his team also found remnants of a Molotov cocktail that exploded near King County’s juvenile detention facility, which is under construction.

Sgt. Lee discussed photos of items found in the van, including a taser and homemade spike strips which were intended to flatten the tires of police bikes. Lee also showed photos of canisters of bear spray which he said had been “causing burns and itching and stinging to their face and exposed skin.” Chief Best interjected that the use of bear spray on human beings was a “federal offense.”

Trump quote of the day

Jan. 22, Twitter:

“One of the many great things about our just signed giant Trade Deal with China is that it will bring both the USA & China closer together in so many other ways. Terrific working with President Xi, a man who truly loves his country. Much more to come!”

Are you against President Trump trying to negotiate with China?

AMAZING! Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump at 50% Approval Rating — Three Points Higher than Obama at Same Point in His Presidency

President Trump’s Rasmussen approval rating surged to 50% on Friday.

This is despite the continued media onslaught and the outrageous smears over his handling of the coronavirus.

Barack Obama had a 47% approval rating at the same point in his presidency.

And, as Rasmussen reported earlier, Obama had a 95% positive media.
Trump has a 95% negative media.


The fake news media and their tech giant cohorts are doing everything they can to sway the election.
So far it’s not working.

Evidence Shows FBI Tried To Tie President Trump To Epstein Case But With No Success

Court documents unsealed late Thursday detail alleged abuse by Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite, and associate of Jeffrey Epstein who is facing criminal charges.

The trove of more than 600 pages of documents were released by U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, and are part of Maxwell’s now-settled 2015 civil defamation lawsuit brought by Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Some of the prominent figures included in the claims are Britain’s Prince Andrew and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D), who have both denied accusations of misconduct.

Giuffre also told prosecutors that former President Bill Clinton Epstein’s private Caribbean island, where “orgies were a constant thing that took place.” Clinton has previously denied ever going to Epstein’s island.

The deposition also mentions celebrity attorney Alan Dershowitz, who defended himself on Twitter Friday morning, demanding the “release of all documents because they contain emails and manuscripts proving in Guiffre’s own words that she never met me.”

The real problem is that Donald Trump is not on the list and the mainstream media is no talking about it!

Per a review of documents released last night in the Jeffrey Epstein case, the FBI tried to tie the now deceased pedophile to citizen Donald Trump but were unable to do so.

The FBI failed to drag Trump into the Epstein mess. One of the abused victims mentioned that Donald Trump was a good friend of Epstein’s. When asked about it, the only response the witness could make was that she stated this because Epstein told her that, nothing else.

The FBI asked the victim over and over if Trump was ever with Epstein but to no avail:

Photo proof below:

I wonder if the witness was grilled incessantly by the FBI regarding the names:

Bill Clinton John Podesta Bill Richardson Adam Schiff Anthony Weiner Hillary Clinton Huma Abedin Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.

And this is at a time when its dangerous to support him. I wonder what the real numbers are.
A lot of people are indeed hiding their support for President Trump. I see it right here in my neighborhood. I am one of three with a Trump sign in the front yard. I have seen one other sign and a man who flies the Trump flag. However I get a lot of kudos when I walk the neighborhood. So far only one person has stated that they do not like my Trump 2020 sign and I do know him. He is indeed a far lefty. I have not seen a Biden sign anywhere though there is a "anybody but Trump" sign reported in the general area in a housing tract across a major street. I have not personally seen it.

Edit. I just placed and order for a support our police sign. I will place it next to my Trump sign.

Tucker Carlson calls Obama 'one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures' in US political history

Tucker Carlson described former President Obama as "one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures in the history of American politics" after his eulogy at the funeral of civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) on Thursday.

Carlson, who also described the former president as "a greasy politician" for calling on Congress to pass a new Voting Rights Act and to eliminate the filibuster, which Obama described as a relic of the Jim Crow era that disenfranchised Black Americans, in order to do so.

"Barack Obama, one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures in the history of American politics, used George Floyd's death at a funeral to attack the police," Carlson said before showing a segment of Obama's remarks.


I have to agree with Tucker on this one. President Obama tried to turn the John Lewis funeral into a political rally for the Democrats. Most of what he was saying was just flat out untrue.
