Moore to the Point - What's the Story, Cori?

It hasn’t been a great week for Missouri’s Cori Bush. The two-term Congresswoman is already facing a tough challenge in the upcoming Democratic primary in August. While he’s also fairly progressive, St. Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell is sane and competent, and he doesn’t make a point to pal around with known antisemites — something which one would think a candidate vying for votes would avoid, particularly in a district that is home to the largest Jewish community in the state.

Anyhoo, on top of a report indicating Bell’s trouncing Bush on the fundraising front — he’s taken in $600,000 since he entered the race while Bush has only $20,000 on hand and is $130,000 in debt — now comes word that she’s being criminally investigated by the DOJ for misuse of campaign and/or government funds for security services, complete with a subpoena served on the House Sergeant at Arms for pertinent records.

Keep in mind that Bush paid her then-boyfriend/now-husband $60,000 for “security services,” despite the fact that he’s not licensed in Missouri to provide such services. Moreover, she reportedly spent over $500,000 on security services in 2022 alone. 

For now, Bush is blaming the investigation on a vast right-wing conspiracy. But given that it’s Joe Biden’s DOJ looking into the Democrat’s finances, there’s likely some fire behind that smoke.

Joe Biden's Stupid Plan to Avenge Fallen US Troops: Tell Iran We're Coming, Then Provide the Target List

 By Andrew Malcolm |

This president of the United States has done so many stupid things in his endless presidency, often intentionally. The incidents glide by day after day like flotsam on a swollen river, and no one does anything but shake their head.

Joe Biden has done it again. But this time, he’s put even more of our valiant military volunteers' lives at risk.

Over the weekend, Iran-backed militants managed to slip an armed drone past the alert system at a U.S. Army base in Jordan. The explosion killed three members of the military and wounded more than three dozen others.

I don’t know precisely how you measure pressure in the D.C. Swamp, likely by the decibel level of publicly squawking to media. This time, it was mostly Republicans calling on Biden to take some form of retaliation other than his standard silence. Biden's weakness in foreign affairs is a major theme of the campaign.

Biden, you may recall, was not forced to seek the presidency. He volunteered to become commander in chief, though he had no military experience, like his two immediate predecessors.

Biden is well-known among Washington-types for his oft-stated disdain for and distrust of the military. He's also well-known for being 81 and acting even older.

You might remember how moved he was at the solemn return of the military bodies from the homicide bombing at the Kabul airport during the botched Afghan troop exit, checking his watch at least three times as the bodies were unloaded.

That whole exit chaos was caused by Biden ignoring military advice to leave some troops there to oversee an orderly evacuation. Biden didn’t. The evacuation turned into days of deadly panic and chaos, which Biden continues to call “an extraordinary success.”

Then, of course, there’s Biden’s intentional end to U.S. energy independence and intentional opening of the southern border, which has now permitted some nine million illegal immigrants, including Chinese and Europeans, to enter and embed themselves throughout the country.

Biden was also the only member of Barack Obama’s inner circle to vote against going after Osama bin Laden when the CIA finally found him because he didn’t trust the SEALs. 

By the way, the brave Pakistani doctor who ID’d the world’s most wanted fugitive by entering his secret hideaway to acquire a DNA sample remains rotting in prison there still.  

Everything Joe Biden does that he’s aware he’s doing has some political angle. Or money. But we’re talking politics here.

The left in his Democrat Party (is there a middle or right remaining?) is worrying out loud that this president is going to get us into another war, as every modern president has except Donald Trump. 

Obama did get the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing. That was before, without congressional notice, he ordered the military to join the European military coalition for months of bombing in 2011 to oust Libya’s dictator. Never mind the West had promised to leave Moammar Gadaffi alone if he turned over his entire nuclear weapons program. Which he did.

Anyway, Monday’s news was filled with Politico and Hill stories about how Biden "weighs" his options for retaliation on Iran. That was to calm Republicans down.

Biden’s favored option during the past 1,105 days has been to do nothing when confronted with foreign challenges. 

Remember when Russia downed one of our intelligence drones in international air space over international waters last year? Biden said nothing. 

Remember when China sent an immense intelligence-gathering array of electronics floating by balloon across the entire country, loitering over key military installations like Montana’s Malmstrom Air Force Base that controls half of our underground nuclear missile silos?

Biden said we couldn’t shoot it down because it would be destroyed, and then we wouldn’t learn what it was doing. So, he waited and ordered the balloon downed over the Atlantic. 

It was destroyed anyway. But the good news for China is that the extra drift time allowed the electronics to transmit all their findings safely back to Beijing via satellite.

So, this being an election year, Biden knew he had to appear to do something. Key word: appear. It took a while.

My colleague Nick Arama had a post Monday evening detailing a) that Biden examined a range of targets and b) had decided to attack, possibly in the next few hours. A very helpful warning for Iran’s proxies.

Are you sitting down? Biden aides also publicly released a list of potential targets.

Read that again.

The president of the United States, who for years illegally kept Top Secret documents in his garage, has intentionally alerted Iran, the world’s largest exporter of terrorism, to the details of his retaliation plans. 

As a result, in the next little while, if not already, our highly-trained volunteer pilots and/or special operators can head out in their country’s service to avenge fallen comrades in the firm knowledge that their commander in chief has told the enemy their targets and when they might be arriving.

That should give the targets plenty of time to hide their equipment and themselves, ensuring that the "retaliation" is nothing but a PR stunt.

Joe Biden says he intends to remain president until 2029.

Lies, Damn Lies, and Democrats

By Judd Garrett

Everything is a lie. Never believe anything that a Democrat politician says, ever. In 1982, after passing the largest tax cut in American history, Ronald Reagan was approached by the Democrats in the Congress with a budget deal. They proposed that if President Reagan agreed to a tax increase, for every new dollar they raised in taxes, Congress would cut spending by two dollars. Reagan, in an attempt to reduce the national debt, agreed to the deal. Taxes were raised, but not only didn’t the Congressional Democrats cut spending, they increased it. In 1990, the Democrats offered George HW Bush a very similar deal. If he agreed to break his campaign promise – “read my lips, no new taxes” – they would cut three dollars of spending for every new dollar of taxes raised. Guess what happened. Taxes were raised. Spending was increased. We went into a recession. George HW Bush lost the election in 1992 to Bill Clinton.


The Democrats are now talking about border security, as if it is actually a priority for them.  After Joe Biden opened our southern border and publicly invited people from all over the world to enter our country illegally – 7 million foreign nationals have taken him up on his offer over the last three years – the Democrats are finally talking serious about border security. We all know this is a ruse. We all know that the election is about nine months away, and the overwhelming majority of the American people want to have strong borders, so after three years of having open borders, and Biden and the Democrats are suddenly talking border security.


Last Friday, Joe Biden said, "I believe we need significant policy changes… to ensure we have the authorities we need to control the border. I'm ready to act. Now the question is for the speaker and House Republicans, are they ready to act as well? They have to choose if they want to solve a problem or keep weaponizing me to score political points against the president. I'm ready to solve the problem. I really am. Massive changes. And I mean it sincerely."  This is a President who reversed all of Donald Trump’s effective border security measures such as “remain in Mexico”. So, instead of requiring “asylum seekers” to wait in Mexico for their asylum hearing, the Biden administration sets illegal immigrants free into our country with the promise they will come back in a couple years for their hearing which most never do.


Biden not only stopped building Trump’s border wall on our southern border, he has auctioned off much of the $15 billion of the building materials for pennies on the dollar, making it even harder for the wall ever to be completed. And on Monday, the Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, granted an emergency appeal from the Biden administration, to cut the wire along a 30 mile stretch of the Rio Grande Valley near the border city of Eagle Pass that the state of Texas put in place to curb the massive invasion at their border with Mexico. How can you claim to be for border security and remove the very things that help secure the birder? The Democrats want to cut the razor wire down that is protecting American citizens from foreign invaders because they say it doesn’t work, but they erected razor wire around the Capital to protect them from American citizens.


In response to the Supreme Court’s ruling, White House National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby said that “President Biden has, since the very beginning, since day one, been concerned about our immigration policy,,, there’s obviously more that can be done, not only to create legal pathways, but to enforce the laws that are in place and whatever new laws come with this so that we can crack down on illegal immigration.” So, they talk a good game about border security, but everything that they do is the exact opposite of securing the border.  


Now, the Democrats are offering “border security” in exchange for $60 billion for Ukraine. Remember, never believe anything a Democrat says. If the border was actually a priority for the Democrats, they would not tie it into a deal with funding Ukraine’s war with Russia which they know many Republicans are against. If border security was really important to them, they would pass a single piece legislation to secure the border, in fact, Joe Biden could do it with an executive order, you know – a phone and a pen. Border security is not important to them, the deal for the Ukraine funding is. And the Democrats will do what they always do in these types of deals, they will not hold up their end of the bargain. The Democrats will get $60 billion for Ukraine so that their billionaire donors in the defense industry and the oligarchs in Ukraine will get even richer, and the billions of dollars designated for border security, will not be used to stop illegal immigrants, but to process them into our country.


They are proposing these fraudulent deals to the Republicans during an election year so that the Republicans will do one of two things – they will either reject the extremely flawed deal, in which case, the Democrats will claim that the Republicans are preventing the border from being secured, blame the crisis on them, and win over uninformed voters, or the Republicans will accept the deal which will simply process millions of more illegals into the country who will end up being Democrat voters in five years. This is what they always do, they create the problem by doing the exact opposite of what most Republicans want, and then they blame the problem on the Republicans if the Republicans do not support the Democrats’ fake solution.


This is all being done to change the demographics of the electorate. They want to get as many people in the country who will vote for their big government handout policies. We are witnessing, the great replacement theory in real life. In New York City earlier this month, 2,000 United States citizens were removed from their public high school in order to house thousands of foreign nationals, who have entered our country illegally, who have violated our federal immigration laws. New York City is prioritizing criminals over citizens. In California, which is carrying $520 billion of debt, Gavin Newsom signed legislation that will give illegal immigrants free medical care. There are over 10,000 homeless veterans in California, men and women who fought for our country who are living on the streets, and Gavin Newsom couldn’t find any money in the budget to help them out, but he was able to carve out billions to ensure illegal immigrants get healthcare. And we wonder why military enlistments are at a 40-year low.


And we all know what is going to happen at the border if Joe Biden or Michelle Obama happen to win in November, we will not hear another word about border security from the Democrats for the next three years. The border will be wide open, another 7 million will walk in, and the Democrats idea of immigration reform will be to give 30 million illegal immigrants amnesty, citizenship and the right to vote, so they can win elections. The sad part is that if the Democrats would actually listen to the American people and do what the voters want, they would win every election, and not have to destroy the country in the process.
