FLASHBACK: Biden Said Iowa Schools Are Better Than DC Because Of Low Black Population


That title is no joke.

Current 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden actually said exactly what is written in the headline above.

How does he keep getting away with this stuff? Well, it’s good to be a progressive Democrat.

From Daily Wire:

Declared 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden’s lengthy record bit him in the behind again on Thursday, as racially charged comments from Biden back in 2007 began to recirculate online.

When Biden was asked by The Washington Post about the discrepancy in school performance in Iowa compared to schools in Washington, D.C., the Democrat cited the high population of African-Americans and other minorities in the D.C. area.

Biden said, “There’s less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with.”

He added, “When you have children coming from dysfunctional homes, when you have children coming from homes where there’s no books, where the mother from the time they’re born doesn’t talk to them — as opposed to the mother in Iowa who’s sitting out there and talks to them, the kid starts out with a 300-word larger vocabulary at age three. Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom.”




reporter: why are schools in iowa are better than DC?
joe biden: lol black people of course

4,066 people are talking about this
Although Biden firmly remains the 2020 Democrat frontrunner, he may not find himself in that position for very long.

Day after day, year after year, the former vice president finds a way to commit a bigger gaffe.

For President Trump, Biden is the gift that keeps on giving.

From Free Beacon:

Former vice president Joe Biden cited his work in the Obama administration helping “women of color” from “the hood” learn how to code on Friday.

Biden, who announced his bid for the 2020 presidential nomination last month, told an Iowa audience it was important for American workers displaced by globalization to adapt to the new, tech-centered economy. To illustrate the point, Biden described a visit he made to Detroit, Mich., as vice president where he saw first hand how local entrepreneurs trained citizens from economically distressed communities to “code.”

Biden: “Through a program we had, through community colleges, we said look put together a program for us where we can teach people how to code. We went out, literally into the hood, and they found, turns out, 54 [individuals], they happened to be all women, the vast majority were women of color, no one with more than a high school degree, aged 24-to-54, and almost a third of them only had a GED.”

WATCH:


Back in 2014, Biden spoke at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Joe made it abundantly clear, noting that illegal aliens are already American citizens.

No joke.

Biden: “You know, 11 million people live in the shadows. I believe they’re already American citizens. These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view.”

WINNING: Study Says China To Pay 75% Of Higher Tariff Costs While U.S. Will See Net GAIN

It’s the kind of reporting you won’t find in the regular far left media because that media is dominated by Chinese ad buys. China right now is hoping that a week or two of U.S. media-driven anti-tariff stories will be enough to make President Trump backtrack on his current tariff policies.

The president is showing no signs of doing that and in fact, indicated the higher tariffs would end up HELPING the U.S. economy and not hurt it as so many left-leaning media agencies are now spinning 24/7. Guess what? A new study indicates President Trump is right yet again and the so-called experts are, once again, DEAD WRONG.

Via: GB Times:

Chinese producers bear brunt of costs from US tariffs: research

Chinese producers will end up paying three-quarters of the costs coming from import tariffs imposed by the United States, while the American economy will see a net gain, a new European study says.

President Donald Trump’s administration has this year imposed higher tariffs on US$250bn worth of Chinese imports as part of an economic and strategic offensive against China, prompting Beijing to retaliate with counter-tariffs on US$110bn of imported American goods.

China has repeatedly warned that the trade war will not benefit anyone, with some US analysts also arguing that American firms and consumers will suffer more from the tariffs.

But according to a study by EconPol Europe, a research network in the European Union, the nature of Chinese goods being taxed harder will translate into higher costs for China compared to the US.

A 25-percentage point increase in tariffs is expected to raise US consumer prices on affected Chinese products by only 4.5 percent on average, while the producer price of Chinese exporting firms declines by 20.5 percent, it found.

The higher tariffs are expected to decrease Chinese exports of...

10 Offbeat Stories You Might Have Missed This Week (5/11/19)

It is time, yet again, to look at some of the more unusual or unique stories that made their way through the news cycle over the last several days. Click here to check out last week’s offbeat list.This week’s list is feeling a bit intoxicated, as it has stories on beer, meth, and psychoactive drugs. There are also a few bizarre crimes to talk about, including a man who tried to deport his wife and a woman caught trespassing in search of “Agent Penis.”

10Will Japan Run Out Of Beer?

For the first time, Japan will be hosting the Rugby World Cup. Local businesses are only now finding out something that might become a problem later on: Rugby fans drink a lot of beer.The organizing committee for the 2019 Rugby World Cup had a planning meeting with Japanese business operators in which they raised concerns that Japanese bars and hotels will be unable to cope with the huge demands for beer from the approximately 400,000 international visitors expected to show up between September and November. This would cause bad publicity, upset traveling fans, and cost local venues substantial business.The committee informed them that, during the previous world cup hosted in England, beer consumption at the games was six times more than at football matches in the same venues.One prefecture has already taken measures by asking brewers to increase their supply and local bars to extend their opening hours. However, officials still say that, following the briefing from the rugby committee, a beer shortage is “a realistic problem.”[1]

9G.I. Joe Versus The Volcano

Last Wednesday, a man fell 21 meters (70 ft) into the most dangerous volcano in the United States and survived.The 32-year-old was a soldier deployed on a training mission on Hawaii’s Big Island. In his spare time, he decided to visit Kilauea in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. He was part of a group that stopped at the Steaming Bluff overlook when the man decided to take a closer look down into Halema’uma’u Crater.There was a safety railing in place, but the tourist decided to climb over it.[2] The ground gave way under him, and he fell down a 90-meter (300 ft) cliff to his certain doom. However, it seems that Madame Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire who lives inside the crater, was feeling benevolent that day. Instead of plummeting all the way to the bottom, the man landed on a ledge.He was rescued a few hours later. He was seriously injured and was airlifted to a medical center. Since then, his condition has been upgraded from critical to stable.

8Take My Wife, Please

A man from Portland, Oregon, received four months in federal prison for trying to bribe an immigration agent to deport his wife.Last May, 48-year-old Antonio Burgos met up with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer in a parking lot in Vancouver, Washington. He then offered the agent $3,000 to deport the wife he was divorcing back to El Salvador, where the couple met.[3]The officer reported the incident and set up a sting operation. He recorded two phone calls in which Burgos repeated his proposition. During a face-to-face meeting, the man upped his offer to $4,000 if the agent would also deport his stepdaughter.Burgos was arrested and pleaded guilty to one count of bribery of a public official in November. He was sentenced this Monday.

7How To Party Shaman-Style

A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences presented the analysis of a 1,000-year-old pouch thought to have belonged to a shaman. Unsurprisingly, it revealed that people back then liked to get really wasted.Anthropologists found the pouch back in 2009 in a rock shelter known as Cueva de Chileno in Bolivia’s Lipez Highlands. It was made out of three fox snouts stitched together and contained traces of multiple psychoactive substances. Scholars believe it could represent the earliest known evidence of ayahuasca, an entheogenic brew used by shamans in spiritual ceremonies.A chemical analysis revealed the presence of dimethyltryptamine (DMT), benzoylecgonine (BZE), bufotenin, cocaine, and possibly psilocin.[4] Also at the site were other items, such as a headband, a snuffing tube, two snuffing tablets, two bone spatulas, and an anthropomorphic figurine. Researchers believe all of them were used in a burial ceremony, as Cueva de Chileno was once a burial site.

6Agent Penis Reporting For Duty

A woman was arrested for trespassing at the CIA headquarters in Virginia and demanding to speak with “Agent Penis.”On May 3, Jennifer Hernandez approached a security officer at the CIA’s visitor center. She wanted two things: to get back her North Carolina ID card and to speak with Agent Penis.A quick check of their records revealed to CIA officials that Hernandez had made multiple appearances over the last few weeks. Each time, she said she was there to talk with her recruiter regarding a job at the CIA. This wasn’t true, so she was told to leave because she was trespassing. The last time this happened, security officers accidentally kept her ID card after officially citing her.Hernandez received her ID back. Agent Penis, however, was unavailable. Other officers escorted her to the bus stop to make sure that she left the premises.[5] When the bus arrived, however, she refused to depart, even when told that she would be arrested otherwise. In the end, she was charged with remaining on an Agency installation after being ordered to leave.

Illegal Alien Siblings plead guilty in murder case in Michigan

SANDUSKY, MI – In the midst of their trial, two Sanilac County siblings opted to plead guilty in the case of a woman slain in Michigan’s Thumb.

Leobardo Torres-Castillo, 22, and Francisca Vargas-Castillo, 34, on May 2 appeared in Sanilac County Circuit Court and pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and concealing the death of an individual. Vargas-Castillo also pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, while her brother pleaded guilty to assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

The siblings pleaded on the third day of their trial. Both defendants are Mexican nationals in the U.S. illegally.

The charges stem from the death of 42-year-old Bricia Flores-Rivera, who was also from Mexico and in the country illegally.

In the early morning of Sept. 1, Sanilac County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 3900 block of Aitken Road in Flynn Township after a man reported Flores-Rivera, his girlfriend, was missing and that he found blood in their residence.

Suspects, victim in Sanilac County homicide are undocumented immigrants

The victim and her alleged killers worked on a Sanilac County dairy farm.

The Michigan State Police Crime Lab was called in to assist at the scene as well as at a vehicle located later that morning in Marlette from leads developed by investigators.

Police were led to Buel Township, approximately 20 miles from...

Mark Meadows: FBI ‘Well Aware the Dossier Was a Lie’ Before Moving to Spy on Trump Campaign



A newly-uncovered document suggests that the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ), including the FBI, was “well aware” that foreign agent Christopher Steele was trying to interfere in the 2016 presidential election with disinformation — and yet still used his materials to spy on American citizens and the Trump campaign, according to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

“[O]fficials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” Meadows said Tuesday in a statement to The Hill’s John Solomon. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.”

Meadows’ statement came in response to a federal document recently unveiled by a Citizens United lawsuit — an email from Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, who met with Steele in October 2016 and recounted his desire to spread the lurid allegations of his since-debunked dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump. Solomon wrote on Tuesday:

Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline.
And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia.
Steele’s client “is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8,” the date of the 2016 election, Kavalec wrote in a typed summary of her meeting with Steele and Tatyana Duran, a colleague from Steele’s Orbis Security firm. The memos were unearthed a few days ago through open-records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. [emphasis added]

Solomon followed up on that report Thursday with another detail from the document — which FBI Director Christopher Wray has redacted all but three sentences of until the end of 2041. He writes that her memo makes it clear Steele “was political, inaccurate, spinning wild theories, and talking to the media,” even getting basic facts wrong about Russia’s diplomatic presence in the U.S.:
[T]he FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable”… [Yet Kavalec] quoted Steele as saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”
Kavalec alerted federal officials to these plans by Steele, a foreign national, to interfere with the presidential election, ten days before the FBI applied in a FISA court for a warrant to surveil the Trump campaign.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Solomon that the DOJ hid Kavalec’s email from the House Intelligence Committee during its investigation of 2016 foreign election interference.

This memo is the latest piece of evidence suggesting the FBI spied on American citizens for partisan political purposes.

Bruce Ohr — a career DOJ official whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele — has testified that he told the FBI Steele was politically biased against Trump and...

Two stunning revelations on Russia hoax investigation yesterday from DC superlawyers Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova

Washington, DC superlawyers Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing have consistently been ahead of the news on the course of the unfolding scandal of spying on the Trump campaign and administration. Appearing last night on Lou Dobbs’s Fox Business Network show, the 2 law and marriage partners revealed that DoJ Inspector General has already concluded that the last 3 of four FISA warrants were illegally obtained.

Moreover, with the revelation from John Solomon that that “Newly unearthed memos show a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media,” Horowizt is re-opening the investigation into the legitimacy of the first of four FISA applications.

Watch:


Make no mistake: this means that crimes were committed and criminal referrals from the IG are coming. Those who signed the applications – a group that includes James Comey and Rod Rosenstein – face potential criminal prosecution.

The second revelation from the duo is, if anything, even more shocking: he FBI attempted to set-up a sting on George Papadopoulos by offering him $10,000 in cash – which he left on the hotel room bed where it was offered to him. The trap this represented was fully revealed when Papadopoulos returned to the USA and customs agents unsuccessfully searched for the $10,000. One of them told Papadopoulos “This is what happens when you work for Donald Trump.” They make the point that the rot at the FBI is not confined to a few appointees at the top. A large number of lower-ranked officials were involved in these stings and...

McCaul: U.S. Pushing Back on Chinese IP Theft and Global Aggression


The United States is finally pushing back against the mounting threats from China, including intellectual property theft, global expansion through coercive economics, and the attempted takeover of the South China Sea, a senior Republican member of Congress says.

Members of Congress in particular, from both parties, are waking up to the problem, said Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas), senior Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"A lot of this has been under the radar and a game of deception, and I think a lot of members of Congress are starting to wake up to the fact this is a serious threat to the national security of the United States," he said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon.

McCaul was chairman of Homeland Security Committee until 2017 and said he is well versed in Chinese cyberattacks through that experience. Those attacks involved the massive theft of American intellectual property from both government and private sector computer networks.

related:SOURCES: CHINA HACKED CLINTON’S PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER

One of the most damaging attacks involved Chinese hackers stealing 22 million federal employee records, including millions with access to classified information. Security officials say the Chinese are using the stolen records for both cyber espionage and human intelligence-gathering efforts.

McCaul said several recent federal indictments of Chinese hackers are important steps in pushing back against the Chinese cyberattacks. "For the first time, you're seeing consequences to China's bad behavior when it comes to [intellectual property] theft," he said.

Prosecutors in Indiana on Wednesday indicted Wang Fujie, a member of what was described as a sophisticated Chinese hacker group that carried out the 2015 cyberattack against the healthcare provider Anthem that involved the theft of more than 60 million health records.

Curbs on China's data theft also are part of the ongoing U.S.-China trade negotiations, as the Trump administration seeks Beijing's agreement to stop illicit Chinese technology transfer.

McCaul also recalled how China sought to steal the 1996 election by funding Bill Clinton's re-election campaign. McCaul, a former Justice Department prosecutor, worked on the case of Johnny Chung, a California businessman who funneled more than $366,000 in funds to the Democrats, including money provided secretly by the People's Liberation Army intelligence service for the Clinton reelection campaign.

"I remember when I was in the Justice Department I prosecuted the Johnny Chung case and I saw what China was doing to steal our technology, and in fact our election," he said.

"The director of Chinese intelligence put money through China Aerospace into Chung's bank account, and he put it in to the Clinton campaign."

The election meddling operation involved PLA Gen. Ji Shengde, head of military intelligence. According to Chung's congressional testimony in 1999, the Chinese general told him "we like your president very much. We would like to see him reelected. I will give you 300,000 U.S. dollars. You can give it to the president and the Democrat Party." Chung would pleaded guilty to bank fraud, tax evasion, and campaign financial violations.

Investigators traced Chung's PLA connections to Lt. Col. Liu Chaoying, an executive at China Aerospace International Holdings, the Hong Kong-based subsidiary of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, a government space launch and missile manufacturer. Liu introduced Chung to Ji.

More recent Chinese election meddling surfaced in October. Vice President Mike Pence said in a speech that China is engaged in a comprehensive and coordinated campaign to undermine support for the president. "China wants a different president," Pence said Oct. 5.

McCaul said a recent example of Chinese technology theft involved the firing of three Chinese academics from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston last month. The center is a leader in immunotherapy.

"We're seeing a systemic [operation] across the United States," McCaul said of China's effort to obtain U.S. medical research and development information. "I think you're going to see indictments coming down in the future. And it's not just limited to MD Anderson. It's going to be all over the...
