Five Quick Things: The Most Shamefully Dishonest Campaign in Political History

Did you happen to see, by any chance, the interview Bret Baier did on Fox News with a soy-eater named T.J. Ducklo, who serves as the national press spokesman for the Joe Biden campaign?

If you didn’t, you really missed out, because it was pretty destructive. And with that, we’ll launch into our Five Quick Things, which all fall under the category of evidence that the Biden campaign is the most shameless pack of liars ever unleashed on the American people.

This is by no means whatsoever an exhaustive list. It’s simply the first five things that came to mind. We could easily come up with 25 more. You’re welcome to put your own nominations into the comment thread below.

1. Joe Biden never opposed the China travel ban.

Yesterday’s Man:... Marcetic, Branko Best Price: $12.00 Buy New $13.46 (as of 03:45 EDT - Details) Seriously. That’s Ducklo’s statement in the Baier interview on Wednesday. He actually said that Biden never opposed it.

Biden said Trump’s ban on travel from China, which was more or less the first thing the president did when the full scope of COVID-19 began to unfold in late January, was racist.

“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia, hysterical xenophobia, and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science,” he said on the very day Trump announced the ban.

Two months later, when it was obvious the travel ban was the right call and the American people fully recognized just how awful the Chinese communists were in spreading COVID-19 around the globe, Biden quietly jumped on board with the travel ban. Now Ducklo is trying to gaslight Bret Baier into the idea Biden was with Trump on the ban all along, while at the same time now spreading the calumny that Trump’s COVID-19 response killed close to 200,000 Americans.

It’s laughable, but it isn’t the most laughable thing Biden has going.

2. Biden wouldn’t really end fracking. Honest!

There’s a reason why Biden’s poll numbers, the ones that aren’t the product of grossly fraudulent polls oversampling Democrats like this was the 1964 election cycle, have him getting slaughtered in Pennsylvania.

That being the fact, Pennsylvanians have grown pretty fond of fracking and the jobs and economic activity that shale gas has produced in the western part of the state, where dying factory towns have sprung back to life over the past decade.

And the tax revenues fracking has generated for the state government have been remarkable. Liberal Privilege: Joe... Trump Jr, Donald Buy New $9.99 (as of 05:18 EDT - Details)

So much so that State Rep. Rob Matzie, a Democrat, was quoted not long ago as saying, “A candidate who wants to ban hydraulic fracturing cannot win the state.”

But Joe Biden needed to fleece as many left-wing Dem voters as he could in order to win the nomination over the other loons in the Democrats’ clown car, so he jumped on board the anti-fracking train. There’s a video out there that Americans for Tax Reform put together convincingly proving that Biden did everything he could to promise the Hard Left he would eliminate hydraulic fracturing. There are about a dozen different video examples of him saying it.

So he starts polling like poison in Pennsylvania, and the first place he goes when he leaves his basement after the Democrats’ convention is Pittsburgh. And he immediately gets asked about fracking, and just as fervently as he said he would eliminate it if he becomes president he’s now swearing he won’t.

Yes, Joe, you’re a liar. Either you lied to your own voters by promising them you’d end fracking, or you’re lying to us now trying to make us believe you won’t. Either way, no credibility.

This is a quite common theme with Biden’s campaign, you know.

3. It’s really Trump who’s pushing those riots in Democrat-run cities, folks.

This one is the biggest whopper of the bunch, and it’s likely the one by which Biden ultimately cuts his own throat.

Not only did Biden and his campaign not act to discourage the riots in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago, and elsewhere, they actively pushed them. It was before she was tapped as the vice-presidential nominee, but Kamala Harris did an interview with Steven Colbert in which she said they would continue and that they should continue.

That obviously didn’t discourage Biden from nominating Harris.

Meanwhile, Biden’s campaign staffers were donating to a fundraising campaign that raised bail for rioters in those cities.

At the time the public had some sympathy for the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of George Floyd’s death, mostly because people are tired of being dragged through this wringer and they’re willing to support just about anything that will make these race riots go away. But when Black Lives Matter does nothing constructive and continuously teams up with Antifa to burn down blue cities with the active support of the political class that runs them, it’s bound to violate Alinsky’s Rule No. 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

And the polls began showing exactly that. Plus, Trump’s campaign smartly adopted a law-and-order message, collecting endorsements from police unions, sheriffs, and other law-enforcement officers around the country.

And now Biden and his team are hilariously trying to claim it’s Trump supporters who are turning peaceful protests into riots.

Well, if that’s true, if it’s a bunch of white dudes in MAGA hats and Hawaiian boogaloo shirts with long guns who are looting and burning commercial establishments and cracking skulls of cops, then why in the hell haven’t Lori Lightfoot, Muriel Bowser, Ted Wheeler, and the rest of America’s Useful Idiot mayors not called in the SWAT teams to put them down?

Shadowland: From Jeffr... Thomas Horn Best Price: $15.00 Buy New $15.11 (as of 04:26 EDT - Details) Amusingly, over the weekend the legislative director for the Speaker of the House in Oregon was arrested in Portland for … rioting. Neither the Speaker nor his legislative director are registered Republicans, so you’ll know. Nor are they independents.

Absolutely nobody believes Biden’s line on the urban violence, which is why you will search far and wide on CNN in a vain attempt to find any mention of riots anymore. Not even when Antifa arsonists are busy trying to burn down the whole west coast Australia-style.

But this is Trump’s doing. They’ve gone from saying Trump is responsible because his leadership made leftists mad enough to riot to saying it’s a bunch of Trumpers out there looting Target.

The contempt for the voters is impressive, is it not?
