A 'great win' for Russia: Turkey defies NATO 
to test fire S-400 anti-aircraft weapons
by Joel Gehrke
{  } ~ Turkey has tested an advanced Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile defense system, in defiance of U.S. sanctions threats and appeals from NATO not to jeopardize transatlantic security cooperation...“For Russia, of course, this is a great win,” said former Turkish lawmaker Aykan Erdemir, a senior analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “Without a doubt, this will continue to disrupt NATO, as not only the U.S. but other NATO members will now have to focus on sorting out the mess within the transatlantic alliance.” President Trump expelled Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet program in order to protect the cutting-edge warplane from Russian espionage following the purchase of the weaponry, but a federal law passed in the wake of Russian interference in the 2016 elections mandates the imposition of sanctions on any customer who conducts a “significant transaction” with the Russian defense industry. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo forestalled that punishment by urging Ankara not to use the anti-aircraft system, but Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has flouted that compromise. “It's obviously a gesture of independence from the Western constraints,” Greek lawmaker Dimitrios Kairidis told the Washington Examiner during a recent discussion of tensions  within NATO and Erdogan’s expected use of the Russian weapons. “He's sending a message again to Washington that he's independent-minded and he will do whatever he wants to do. And this gives Putin a certain satisfaction.”Russian state-run media claimed early access to information about the test. "Three missiles of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system were launched,” TASS quoted “a source in military and diplomatic circles” as saying on Friday. “All of them successfully hit the designated targets.” Turkey tested the S-400 even while intervening on behalf of Azerbaijan in a violent border dispute with Armenia, which hosts Russian military bases “in Russia’s backyard,” as Kairidis put it, raising the likelihood that the test is part of an effort to manage Erdogan’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin... 
North Korea’s New ‘Monster’ Missile Designed 
To Defeat U.S. Missile Defenses
by Paul Crespo
{ } ~ As I recently noted, the North Korean regime of Kim Jong Un just showed the world its newest and largest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) at its nighttime parade on Saturday...The liquid-fueled missile, now designated the Hwasong-16, was seen mounted on a massive, 11-axle mobile transporter erector launcher (TEL). At approximately 85 feet long, the new rocket appears to be about 6 to 9 feet longer than the Hwasong-15, reports the New York Post. “It’s also wider, making it the largest road-mobile ICBM of its type in the world.” “It’s huge,” said Melissa Hanham, a weapons expert and deputy director of the Open Nuclear Network who called the missile “a monster,” according to the Post. Weapons experts believe the likely engine configuration of the “monster” long-range ICBM would allow Pyongyang to deliver several thousand pounds of payload anywhere in the United States for the first time. More importantly the missile should be able to carry multiple warheads. As Ankit Panda, author of “Kim Jong Un and the Bomb: Survival and Deterrence in North Korea,” notes, Kim seems to have learned from the former Soviet Union that it’s more effective to add warheads to a single missile than build more missiles, reports the Post. Panda, who is also a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, estimates that the Hwasong-16 could hold as many as four warheads. Meanwhile, reports Bloomberg, the Hwasong-15, launched in 2017, is believed to carry a single warhead. With a limited, and unproven, arsenal, North Korea would be challenged with America’s small, but effective, anti-missile defenses. Panda also said, at a web seminar hosted by South Korea-based NK News, that he estimates that Kim would need to launch 11 single-warhead ICBMs against the U.S. to have a minimum 1-in-3 chance of evading American missile defenses and detonating a nuclear warhead on American soil. With more warheads per missile, “They can saturate the defenses by having more re-entry vehicles than the US can ever hope to defend against,” Panda stated, according to the Post. While the new engines on the Hwasong-16 remain untested in a live missile launch, which would violate international sanctions, this new missile appears to be giving the Hermit Kingdom that dangerous capability.
On Hunter Biden, remember the real story
by Byron York
{ } ~ The social media angle of the Hunter Biden email story has nearly taken over public discussion of the piece published in the New York Post, headlined "Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad."...Yes, it's true that Twitter and Facebook censorship of the story is outrageous. The social media giants have taken a giant step toward earning new regulations from Washington. But the social media story isn't the big story. The big story is: Did Hunter Biden introduce that Ukrainian businessman to his vice president father? That would be important for two reasons. One, we already know that the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, put the younger Biden on its board to win influence with the scumbag/liar-nObama administration, whose point man on Ukraine policy was Hunter Biden's father scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe, then vice president of the United States. The New York Post story suggests that Burisma actually got something for the $50,000 or more it was paying Hunter Biden. The New York Post story might also shed light on scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden's flat denial of knowledge about Hunter Biden's Burisma connection. "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings," scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden said in September 2019. As for Hunter Biden, the New Yorker reported in July 2019 that "As Hunter recalled, his father discussed Burisma with him just once: 'Dad said, 'I hope you know what you are doing,' and I said, 'I do.'" Now, the New York Post has published an email, reported to be from a Burisma executive to Hunter Biden. The New York Post says it was sent on April 17, 2015, when scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden was vice president and Hunter Biden was on Burisma's board. "Dear Hunter," the executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, wrote, "Thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spend [sic] some time together. It's realty [sic] an honor and pleasure." Democrats and scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden's partisans in the press pushed back ferociously. It's Russian disinformation, they claimed, without any specific knowledge that it was Russian disinformation. Facebook limited the distribution  of the New York Post story. Twitter banned it altogether. All of this was done before anyone made any serious attempt to confirm the allegation. The scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden campaign denied it all. "The New York Post never asked the scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story," spokesman Andrew Bates said. "They certainly never raised that Rudy Giuliani — whose discredited conspiracy theories and alliance with figures connected to Russian intelligence have been widely reported — claimed to have such materials. Moreover, we have reviewed scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden's official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place." The last sentence is what matters. With it, the scumbag drumbling lips iar-Biden campaign seemed to be flatly denying that Hunter Biden introduced Pozharskyi to scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden. Of course, one could parse the meaning. For example, the statement referred only to scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden's "official schedules." There could not have been some sort of unofficial introduction, could there? And the statement said that no meeting "as alleged by the New York Post" ever took place. There could not have been some sort of introduction that did not fit the allegation in the New York Post, could there? Certainly the scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden campaign would not make a lawyerly, evasive statement like that, would it? The answer is not clear. Especially after Politico reported: "scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden's campaign would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi, which wouldn't appear on scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden's official schedule. But they said any encounter would have been cursory. Pozharskyi did not respond to a request for comment."... 
hanoi-John Kerry Lied, Knew of scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden/Burisma Link
 by R. Cort Kirkwood
{ } ~ Former Secretary of State hanoi-John Kerry lied when he said he knew nothing about Hunter Biden’s obscenely lucrative job with Burisma Holdings, the energy company at the center of the scumbag/drumbling lips liar-Biden/Burisma influence-peddling scandal...The latest on the scandal, which blew up this week again with e-mails published in the New York Post, is found in the Senate Homeland Security Committee’s report about  scumbag srumbling lips liar-Biden/Burisma: Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns. The report includes testimony from hanooi-Kerry’s chief of staff, who admitted briefing the former secretary of state. Another top advisor sent hanoi-Kerry newspaper clips about scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden/Burisma. Good thing is, we don’t need to ask what hanoi-Kerry knew and when he knew it. The report answers both questions.Hunter Biden joined Burisma’s board at $50,000 a month after his father met with Hunter Biden’s business partner, the report explains: On April 16, 2014, Vice President scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden met with his son’s business partner, Devon Archer, at the White House. Five days later, Vice President scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden visited Ukraine, and he soon after was described in the press as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.” The day after his visit, on April 22, Archer joined the board of Burisma. Six days later, on April 28, British officials seized $23 million from the London bank accounts of Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky. Fourteen days later, on May 12, Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, and over the course of the next several years, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were paid millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch for their participation on the board...
scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden Makes Unbelievably Pathetic Excuse For Ukraine Meet-Up
by Ellie Bufkin
{ } ~ The scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden campaign is understandably scrambling for the correct spin after a bombshell report from the New York Post on Wednesday that the Democratic nominee for president has been lying about his knowledge of and involvement with a Ukrainian energy firm...Understandably, Team scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden does not want this news to hang on the front pages as they charge into the final days before the presidential election, but thus far, their excuses and denials have been baffling, weak, and insincere. The New York Post alleged that although scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden has repeatedly, and with prejudice, told reporters that he had no knowledge of how his unqualified and drug-addicted son Hunter wound up being compensated millions of dollars as a board member of Burisma Holdings, he met with a top executive from the firm in 2015. At first, the scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden campaign said that this was a lie based on their evidence that no such meeting existed on scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s official vice-presidential calendar at the time. After criticism from those pointing out that such a meeting would be highly unlikely to be entered into such a record, the campaign said they could not prove that an “informal meeting” never took place between the VP and Vadym Pozharskyi.Pozharskyi’s name was also seen in email correspondence to Hunter following the meeting, thanking him for making it possible. Other correspondence found on a laptop reportedly abandoned by Hunter showed him leveraging money and position with Burisma in exchange for access to his father, who they hoped to influence for political reasons. Other emails seemed to show that Hunter referred to his father as “the big guy” and leveraged access to the vice president in exchange for millions of dollars. Both Twitter and Facebook have actively suppressed the stories by the New York Post by blocking their distribution and locking accounts that have shared links to the reporting. Now the scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden campaign is citing the suppression and censoring by Twitter as proof positive that the reports about scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden and his son are demonstrably false. In a Thursday morning interview with Cheddar, scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s campaign press secretary Jamal Brown said “Twitter’s response,” was enough evidence to move on from the story. “Twitter’s response to the actual article itself makes clear that these purported allegations are false and are not true,” Brown said. He also thanked them for their fight against “misinformation.” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Wednesday night that the website’s initial response to the New York Post story was “unacceptable,” but only because it lacked clarity. As users are still unable to share the story on Twitter, the site’s “safety” account now claims the block is because the information in the story was obtained through hacking, not because they didn’t find it credible. Twitter also placed a trending topic on Thursday morning circling back to a “fact-check” on a peripherally related story from the Washington Post about scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s insistence on firing a corrupt Ukraine prosecutor. That fact check was published in September of 2019 and offered no link to the story published by the New York Post.
Voter Humiliates scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden:
What Do You Have To Say Besides 'You Ain't Black'?
By Jack Davis 
{ } ~ A skeptical young black voter asked Democratic presidential candidate scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe Biden on Thursday for some substance behind the swagger of scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s attitude toward black voters...In May, the former vice president told host Charlamagne Tha God on “The Breakfast Club” that there should be no question that black voters will support him. “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,”  scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden said then. In a humiliating reminder that gaffes never die, those words were thrown in scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s face Thursday by Cedric Humphrey, a student from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, who asked a question at scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s ABC News town hall event in Philadelphia. “Many people believe that the true swing demographic in this election will be black voters under the age 30 — not because they’ll be voting for Trump, but because they won’t vote at all,” said Humphrey, who was identified as a “progressive Democrat.” “I myself have had this exact same conflict,” he said. “So my question for you, then, is: Besides ‘you ain’t black,’ what do you have to say to young black voters who see voting for you as further participation in a system that continually fails to protect them?” scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden responded with a platitude that he said came from the late Rep. John Lewis, whom scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden called “my buddy.” “It’s a sacred opportunity, the right to vote, to make a difference,” scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden said. In terms of policy matters, scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden said, without elaboration, that he cared about making the criminal justice system “fair” and “more decent.” He also said that to increase wealth among black Americans, federal money should be used to increase teacher salaries so that black children can get a better education. The former vice president also cited policy initiatives from the scumbag/liar-nObama administration that he said increased investments in historically black colleges and universities and made it easier for black Americans to buy a home and start a business. scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden’s opponent, President Donald Trump, has released what he calls the Platinum Plan to improve the economic and social conditions of black Americans. Black Georgia Democrat Vernon Jones told  Fox News the $500 billion plan builds on Trump’s significant achievements to ensure that this economic boom included black Americans...
No, scumbag drumbling lips liar-Joe, 
There Was No Economic Boom Under scumbag/liar-nObama
G0bMj5onXVQPNsU0IoLAR46KLVTo1Pxu5NidWonXsbyEPU-_dEsdGKMaqvwOARsnPFbpxenspG8UzvgKzlB1iKeQ1IKAj7EnHf7LxDPNZ5p_IL0p4HZe7CajJWtpb6Rfb4ROiDv71V-U60vkhR-P4qHv81122OM=s0-d-e1-ft#<a href=  STEPHEN MOORE  

The great Jackie Gleason once said, “The past remembers better than it lived.” And so it is, apparently, with the scumbag/liar-nObama years.

There was no economic “boom” as scumbag drumbing lips liar-Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are misremembering. This was an economy that skidded into a financial ditch and seemingly never pulled out of it and got back on the prosperity hot lanes until Donald Trump won the election in November 2016.

You can mark the real recovery — an economic inflection point almost the day after that surprise election outcome.

Every liberal forecaster and most academic economists had guaranteed America that, if Trump were elected, the stock market would crash; workers would be flattened; and, as New York Times economist Paul Krugman famously predicted, the economy would “never” recover.

Instead, the Dow Jones Industrial Average soared by 257 points the morning after the election (that’s some crash), and it rose for the next three years, as it has again over the last several months. A few days after that election, small-business optimism surged by its most considerable amount ever measured, going back many decades. Family incomes surged to record-high levels in 2017, 2018 and 2019 as deregulation and tax cuts fueled a powerful engine. In three years, ordinary people had made more income gains than in eight years under the scumbag/liar-Obama/scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden administration.

But now we are being told a fairy tale that the scumbag/liar-nObama economy was booming and scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden miraculously fixed it and Trump “blew it.”

Here’s the reality check. Under Barack scumbag/liar-nObama, the economy barely grew 2% — rather pathetic for a “recovery.” The people who made the preposterous bullish claims that scumbag/liar-nObama saved the economy are the ones who now say the scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden economic plan will gain millions of jobs.

In the last year of scumbag/liar-nObama’s presidency, growth shrunk to 1.6%, and the concern was the possibility of another recession. That’s some boom.

If the scumbag/liar-nObama recovery had been as rapid as the average recovery, we would have had at least $1 trillion more GDP by 2016. If we had experienced a Ronald Reagan-style recovery, the GDP would have been $2.5 trillion larger when scumbag/liar-nObama left office. It is almost equivalent to the size of the entire output of the state of California gone missing.

The first four years of the scumbag/liar-nObama presidency were abysmal. The scumbag/liar-nObama/scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden $800 billion stimulus plan left unemployment higher every year than their economists had predicted if we did nothing. What bailed out scumbag/liar-nObama, ironically enough, was the shale oil and gas revolution that added millions of jobs despite the scumbag/liar-nObama/scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden hatred of fossil fuels. Most of the employment growth came in Texas, Oklahoma and North Dakota. Meanwhile, most of the green energy subsidies went into failed and now-bankrupt companies such as Solyndra. And now scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden promises another $2 trillion for “clean energy” corporate welfare subsidies.

Throughout nearly all of the scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden/scumbag/liar-nObama presidency, roughly 1 out of 3 people in the United States rated the economy as “good” or “excellent.” Most of the rest rated the economy “fair” or “poor.” That number surged to about 65% rating the economy as “good” or “excellent” within a year of Trump’s presidency.

People can debate Trump’s handling of the virus and the mistakes that have been made. It now looks like under any scenario, except an airtight sequestering of those over the age of 75, smokers, diabetics and severely overweight people, we would have seen the same or worse results.

Now the question is which game plan gets the economy and employment back to normal as quickly as possible. scumbag drumbling lips liar-Biden promises a $4 trillion tax hike on almost all U.S. businesses and investors. That’s roughly 5% of everything we produce that gets snatched away in higher taxes. If you believe that this will get America back on the fast track, you probably believe Obama caused an economic boom.
