7:50 a.m. D.C., time.

1. “I won’t, never!!!”

From the Breitbart article:

Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, worked to forge a “grand bargain” with congressional Republicans on deficit reduction during the Obama years. As part of the effort, the former vice president openly advocated for putting entitlement programs, including Social Security, on the negotiating table.

Shortly after taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama and his administration were struck with a complex problem. The economy, which was still in the midst of the Great Recession, was struggling to rebound, with job losses, bankruptcies, and home foreclosures running rampant. At the same, the deficit was at an all-time, hitting 8.9 percent of Gross Domestic Product, because of the Bush-era tax cuts and recession required stimulus spending.

Obama began signaling his desire to tackle the deficit in early 2010. In February of the year, Obama created via executive order a National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. The commission, which would be bipartisan, would consist of 18 members, with 12 appointed by Congress and six by the president. Its goal would be devising a long-term proposal for lowering the deficit and achieving a balanced budget by at least 2015.

To chair the commission, Obama tapped former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) and Erskine Bowles, a one-time chief of staff to ex-President Bill Clinton. The commission, simply known as Simpson-Bowles, was set to release its recommendations by December 2010 in hopes that the incoming Congress would act on them the following year.

Even though Biden was not a member of the commission, the vice president took an interest in its work because it overlapped with his official role in helping run the administration’s economic recovery efforts. Biden, who had long favored freezing all federal spending, including social security, to rein in the deficit, worked with not only Simpson and Bowles on crafting a proposal, but also the commission’s executive director, Bruce Reed. As a former Clinton administration official in the early-1990s, Reed had partnered with then-Senator Biden on authoring the 1994 crime bill.

The eventual proposal that Simpson-Bowles authored sought to reduce the deficit by more than four trillion dollars. It would have stabilized the growth of the federal debt by 2014, while reducing it by more than 60 percent by 2023. Although the goals looked good, the cost would have fallen heavily on individuals who rely on federal spending and entitlement programs, like Social Security.
Simpson-Bowles proposed to cut Social Security benefits for those in the top half of the income tax bracket, while raising the retirement age to 69. The plan also would have reduced the cost of living adjustments that are made to benefits as inflation rises.

Breitbart. 10/20/2020.

I’m not gonna lie, but having not read Breitbart, unless linked by our sitting Stupid, I forgot that the site is capable of publishing anything at all that sounds “news like,” which the above article does. They even included links to their sources….they conclude the article by writing; Despite the failure, Biden, with Obama’s backing continued trying to forge a “grand bargain” on deficit reduction in 2012 and 2013. Each time the talks included tying Chained CPI to Social Security and other entitlements programs. The former vice president’s position on deficit reduction comes back into the spotlight as Biden has promised to not only protect, but also expand Social Security if elected in November.

IMO: The article doesn’t exactly painted Biden in a bad light, as we all know, our spending is out of control, figuring out how to cut spending, includes social security. I’m not saying his idea would work, or be sound for our older population, I’d need to research it out complete to form a less shallow opinion, but on the surface, Biden just comes across as a person capable of thinking beyond sound-bytes.

2. Another Breitbart article this time pushing a Wall Street Journal Editorial.

The article shares excerpts of the Wall Street Journal‘s Editorial Board opinion piece that was posted on October 20th, 2020.

According to the Editorial Board just because the media is “ignoring the emails found in Hunter Biden’s laptop, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t news. Joe Biden has an obligation to answer questions about his son’s influence-peddling and his own financial dealings—notably regarding China.”

The emails found on a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden was provided to the New York Post, via copies presented by President Idiots personal Idiot, Rudy Giuliani.

The Biden campaign has called the New York Post story a “smear campaign.”

The FBI is investigating to determine if the emails-laptop is part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

DNI RatFink has said the government has no “intelligence to support the disinformation claim.”

Fox News has said that they have confirmed, “the veracity of the email with one of its recipients and that sources say the “big guy” is Joe Biden. An August 2017 email from “Robert Biden” (Hunter’s legal first name) crows that the original deal was for $10 million a year in fees, but that it had since become “much more interesting to me and my family” because it included a share of “the equity and profits.” The Biden campaign says the Veep’s tax returns don’t show any involvement with Chinese investments.”

Here is where, I had the WTAF moment while reading the opinion piece; The Democratic-media refrain is that even if these latest emails are real—again, the Bidens don’t deny their authenticity—they fail to prove Mr. Biden broke any law. But felonies aren’t the minimum standard for political behavior. This is where my whataboutism meter red-lined. Seriously? We are suppose to hold Biden to standard, not in fact, equal to how we hold the current Stinker inside our White House?

After my WTAF moment, I was able to continue reading the opinion piece which explains, “Joe Biden ought to clear the air on this China business in his own political interest. Is he the “big guy” in the email? What happened with the deal? China will be one of Mr. Biden’s toughest foreign-policy challenges, and the unexplained documents won’t go away once he’s elected. If Republicans hold the Senate, you can bet there will be more digging.”

The Board does note; President Trump, as usual, is muddying the story with inappropriate demands that the Department of Justice investigate a potential crime. But the real burden here should be on Mr. Biden and the press. Perhaps Joe Biden wasn’t involved, and Hunter was using his father’s name to advance his own business interests. But it’s also possible that Joe Biden was aware of the CEFC business and was unwilling to tell his son that he couldn’t trade on his father’s name and position.

And what is Rudy saying?

Appearing on AM1100 The Flag, a North Dakota radio show, the former New York City mayor grumbled about social media companies initially restricting access to the Post stories, saying it “reminds me of the communist and the Nazis.” From there, he said the story should be spread regardless of its accuracy. “They’ve set up an Iron Curtain so you can’t get out the New York Post story which I happened to know is 100 percent accurate,” Giuliani declared. “But even if it isn’t accurate, the American people are entitled to know it.”

The Daily Beast. 10/20/2020.

Speaking of China…

Continuing their review of Trump Taxes, the New York Times, on Tuesday reported that, “it turns out that China is one of only three foreign nations — the others are Britain and Ireland — where Mr. Trump maintains a bank account, according to an analysis of the president’s tax records, which were obtained by The New York Times. The foreign accounts do not show up on Mr. Trump’s public financial disclosures, where he must list personal assets, because they are held under corporate names. The identities of the financial institutions are not clear.”

The Chinese account is controlled by Trump International Hotels Management L.L.C., which the tax records show paid $188,561 in taxes in China while pursuing licensing deals there from 2013 to 2015.
The tax records do not include details on how much money may have passed through the overseas accounts, though the Internal Revenue Service does require filers to report the portion of their income derived from other countries. The British and Irish accounts are held by companies that operate Mr. Trump’s golf courses in Scotland and Ireland, which regularly report millions of dollars in revenue from those countries. Trump International Hotels Management reported just a few thousand dollars from China.

In response to questions from The Times, Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said the company had “opened an account with a Chinese bank having offices in the United States in order to pay the local taxes” associated with efforts to do business there. He said the company had opened the account after establishing an office in China “to explore the potential for hotel deals in Asia.”

“No deals, transactions or other business activities ever materialized and, since 2015, the office has remained inactive,” Mr. Garten said. “Though the bank account remains open, it has never been used for any other purpose.”

New York Times. 10/20/2020.

They note; It is difficult to determine from the tax records precisely how much money Mr. Trump has spent trying to land business in China. The records show that he has invested at least $192,000 in five small companies created specifically to pursue projects there over the years. Those companies claimed at least $97,400 in business expenses since 2010, including some minor payments for taxes and accounting fees as recently as 2018.

Mr. Trump’s plans in China have been largely driven by a different company, Trump International Hotels Management — the one with a Chinese bank account.
The company has direct ownership of THC China Development, but is also involved in management of other Trump-branded properties around the world, and it is not possible to discern from its tax records how much of its financial activity is China-related. It normally reports a few million dollars in annual income and deductible expenses.
In 2017, the company reported an unusually large spike in revenue — some $17.5 million, more than the previous five years’ combined. It was accompanied by a $15.1 million withdrawal by Mr. Trump from the company’s capital account.

On the president’s public financial disclosures for that year, he reported the large revenue figure, and described it only as “management fees and other contract payments.” One significant event for the company that is known to have occurred in 2017 was the buyout of its management contract for the SoHo hotel in New York, which Bloomberg reported to have cost around $6 million.

4. Rigged Election!

As a CA resident, I feel I can toss my opinion out here for this bullshit. California is not in play for Republicans, for two simple reasons. Sure, there are more complex reasons, but the two simplest reasons are as follows;

Republicans spend little to no money in California.

Republicans even from our own state bash California on rinse and repeat. They tell us and the nation that we are nothing but hippie-dippie tofu-bbq-ing leftist liberals who care only about ourselves.

So, yeah, it’s “no wonder”, California isn’t in play.

5. Self-promoter promotes-self.

Surprise!, super fan thinks his idol is dreamy….

@ 4:06 p.m. D.C., time on October 20th, 2020, the Bitch Ass, tweeted:

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins tweeted just minutes after Big Baby:

Two hours later the Whiny Bitch followed-up on his “more to come,” tweet @ 6:09 p.m. D.C., time.

Chief of Staff for President Pussy Ass Bitch on Wednesday said, according to CNN, that it there was, “”high probability” that the President will release footage of the interview before it airs Sunday, and accused Stahl of acting “more like an opinion journalist.”” Meadows was asked what happened and he said, “you’ll get to see it.”

10. Shares an image of him and 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl.

Apparently they are dumb and did not expect a seasoned journalist, to open the book.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, President I don’t Know Nothin’ fled his interview with Stahl 45 minutes in, and failed to return.

This post might be updated.

This is an Open Thread.
