Joe Biden just declared Trump’s coronavirus vaccines unsafe, but media doesn’t label him “anti-vaxxer”

When it comes to the safety and effectiveness of President Donald Trump’s upcoming “Operation Warp Speed” (OWS) vaccines for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), presidential hopeful Joe Biden is not convinced that they will work.

Speaking publicly, which is usually not a good idea for him, Biden offered up the conspiracy theory that “people don’t believe that [Trump] is telling the truth” about the safety of these vaccine candidates. “Therefore, they’re not at all certain they’re going to take the vaccine,” Biden added.

We use the phrase “conspiracy theory” in this context as a tongue-in-cheek, seeing as how the left would ordinarily accuse anyone who dares to question the safety or effectiveness of any vaccine of being an “anti-vaxxer.” But in this case, Biden openly questioned the safety and effectiveness of all OWS vaccines simply because they are being developed under the guidance of the Trump administration.

American Revolution 2.0 2020: PATRIOTS vs. LOYALISTS: Stand for truth, or kiss your assets goodbye to ongoing Bankster looting of tens of trillions (3 of 9)

“The American democracy was not given to us on a platter. It is not ours for all time, irrespective of our efforts. Either people organize and they find political leadership to take this on, or we are going to be in big trouble, okay?… That’s absolutely the heart of the problem. I would also say and tell you, and emphasize, these people will not come out and debate with us. The heads of these companies or their representatives, they will not come out. They’re afraid. They don’t have the substance. They don’t have the arguments. We have the evidence. They have the lobbyists. And that’s all they have.” ~ MIT’s Simon Johnson (and former Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund) on “too big to fail” banks led by gambling oligarchs who captured US government as in “banana republics” (his words). He concludes fraud is the heart of Wall Street.

Coronavirus is the New ‘Terrorism’ — Ron Paul

What they can do is use terrorism, a virus, and other real, exaggerated, or manufactured crises to expand their power at the expense of our liberty. -- Politicians will never resist the temptation to use crises as excuses to gain more power. Therefore, it is up to those of us who know the truth to spread the message of liberty and grow the liberty movement, A strong liberty movement is the only thing that can force the politicians to stop stealing our liberty while promising phantom security from terrorists and viruses.

Debate This!

Biden’s image makers know the less the public sees and hears Biden, the better. Biden’s surrogates, a host of handlers, and a sympathetic, seditious Press have constructed a false image of Biden. It is a fragile image easily undercut through public appearances and shattered by a one-to-one match-up with Trump. This is precisely why the Press, along with Biden’s handlers, support early voting and why they seek to delay a Presidential debate. -- The forces driving Biden’s White-House bid must rely on deception. That raises the question whether the upcoming November 2020 Presidential election will be reasonable, fair, impartial, transparent, and honest.

Trump's COVID-19 unemployment plan confuses US state governors

Whether United States President Donald Trump has the constitutional authority to extend federal unemployment benefits by executive order remains unclear. Equally up in the air is whether states, which are necessary partners in Trump's plan to bypass Congress, will sign on.

Trump announced an executive order Saturday that extends additional unemployment payments of $400 a week to help cushion the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. Congress had approved payments of $600 a week at the outset of the outbreak, but those benefits expired August 1 and Congress has been unable to agree on an extension. Many Republicans have expressed concern that a $600 weekly benefit, on top of existing state benefits, gives people an incentive to stay unemployed.

FPC Brief: Background Checks for Ammo Violate Second Amendment

In 2016, California enacted a series of regulations on ammunition sales. Ammunition sales must now be conducted by a licensed ammunition vendor, occur face-to-face at the vendor’s California location, and be approved by the California Department of Justice. DOJ approval requires a background check on the purchaser, for every ammunition purchase. Making matters worse, the background check system denies 16% of lawful purchases due to deficiencies in the system. In the first few months of its enactment, over 100,000 lawful acquisitions were refused, and countless others were deterred by the system’s complexity.
