1 – Joe Biden claims ‘foul play’ while defending son Hunter 
During an interview with Stephen Colbert that aired Thursday night, Joe Biden finally answered a carefully worded question about his son Hunter being under federal investigation.

Colbert told Biden, “The people who want to make hay in Washington are going to try to use your son as as a cudgel against you. How do you feel about that? And what do you have to say to those people?”

“I have, we have, great confidence in our son. I am not concerned about any accusations being made against him,” Biden responded. “It’s used to get to me. I think it’s kind of foul play but look, it is what it is and he’s a grown man, he is the smartest man I know. I mean, from a pure intellectual capacity – and as long as he’s good, we’re good.”

DML: There’s “foul play” all right… and it’s on the Biden side!

2 – Christie to GOP: Don’t Disturb the Electoral College — Biden ‘Clearly Won,’ Accept Defeat
Breitbart reports: Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” that it was time for Republican lawmakers to accept President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election and not try to “disturb the certification of the Electoral College.”

Cuomo said, “What do you say to members of your party who are in Congress who are even contemplating doing something on January 6th to disturb the certification of the Electoral College?”

Christie said, “Chris, you know, whenever anybody loses an election, party, an individual, there’s great disappointment, but elections have consequences. And this one was clearly won by president-elect Biden by the same margin in the Electoral College that President Trump won four years ago. And by even more, nearly double the popular vote. This election, there’s been no evidence put forward that’s shown me as a former prosecutor that there was any fraud that would change the result of the election. And so it’s time for us to accept that defeat. Also, by the way, accept the many victories we had that night. 14 new House members, two legislatures at the state level switched, and a governorship flipped to the Republican Party. We had a great night except at the top of the ticket. So we need to accept that, and we need to move on.”

DML: Unbelievable….!

3 – ATF Decision Could Lead to Biggest Gun Registration, Turn-in Effort in American History
The Free Beacon reports: New guidance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) could put millions of Americans in legal jeopardy.

The ATF published a notice Thursday that could require millions of AR-15 pistols and similar firearms—which are designed with braces that strap on to a shooter’s forearm—to be either registered, turned in, destroyed, or dismantled. But the standards laid out for determining the devices’ legality, such as caliber or weight, provide no objective measures, and the agency said it may also use undisclosed factors to judge the legality of the devices.

The agency conceded in the notice that some pistol braces are legal and should not be subject to the registration or destruction requirement. It said, however, that it could not provide a blanket determination for which pistols, or braces with which they’re often equipped, are legal and said it would have to examine each gun “on a case-by-case basis.” That means owners of the vast majority of the estimated three to four million AR-15 pistols and similar firearms may have to register with the ATF.

The notice said the agency plans to waive the $200 tax for those registering the affected firearms during a grace period to be announced later. The public has two weeks to offer comment on the ATF notice before it goes into effect.

DML:  Americans need to be FLOODING them with comments over the next two weeks!

4 – Overdose deaths accelerated as pandemic hit, CDC says, with record 80k dead in a 12-month span
The Washington Examiner reports: The opioid epidemic has gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new data released by the Centers for Disease Control Thursday.

“The disruption to daily life due to the COVID-19 pandemic has hit those with substance use disorder hard,” said CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield.

The CDC reported Thursday that, based on provisional data, over 81,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020. That is the largest number of opioid deaths in a 12-month span.

Deaths due to synthetic opioids jumped 38.4%, the largest increase of any drug. Deaths from cocaine increased 26.5%.

DML: Over 80,000 deaths, and no one is even talking about them. I told you this would happen!

5 – Vice President Mike Pence receives coronavirus vaccine
The New York Post reports: Vice President Mike Pence received the COVID-19 vaccine on live TV Friday morning in a move designed to instill confidence in the American public that the newly approved shot is safe.

Pence, second lady Karen Pence and Surgeon General Jerome Adams took turns getting jabbed at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building near the White House.

They became the first high-ranking White House officials to receive the vaccine, developed by Pfizer-BioNTech and approved for use in the US a week ago.

DML: I am NOT taking it. No way. Never!

  1. The Biden presidency is going to be one big joke, nothing will be done about any of the crimes that the Biden family has Commented it will all be swept under the rug as far as the Pence’s getting the shot God help and protect them.

  2. Christie and Biden’s son both smoke Crack Cocaine these cartoon characters believe their bullshit lmmao

    Unbelievable that anyone would think that Biden got more votes than Obama when Biden hardly campaigned

  3. We have to realize and admit by now that everything is over. Pervert Biden will be the President and everything will go as usual. Republicans will be kissing their asses and be submissive as they always had. There will be no repercussion of the Biden’s crimes like it happened to Hillary Clinton and they will all keep going on with their lives of dishonesty and crimes this time at the public eye with everyone ‘s blessings. What is happening in this country is repulsive. Makes me puke and sick of my stomach. I fear more for this bs going on that with the COVID-19. Also sorry to say but there will be no more Republicans in the WH anymore and in the most part they are to be blamed. They deserve everything is coming to them for betraying their only hope to restore this country. If I were Trump I just send everyone to hell and live his life quietly and happy with his family and forget about everything. If this is what the country decided let them be happy with their decision and deal on what is coming up.

    • President Trump will fight to the very end because he loves this country of ours. Did you see all the American loving Trump supporters? It was a beautiful and an epic sight to view such patriotism of millions of fellow neighbors. Your right about some of the crooked swamp dwellers that pose as Republican politicians that lack the unity, balls and intelligence to properly represent the 75+ Million Trump supporters! There’s no way on Gods green earth Biden legitimately earned 80+ Million votes…period! Can’t stand idle and watch this treachery take place! If you call yourself an American? Then be a patriot for her and make your voice be heard. Why aren’t more of these 75+ Million Trump supports rallying every weekend? Storm the Whitehouse, it’ll be difficult to stop even 1 million people. Something needs to get the attention of these lame duck Supreme Court justices. This is like a bad dream that one can’t wake up from!

    • Biden DID NOT win fair and square. The 74 million people that voted for Trump did not want Biden. He will never be recognized as a legal president by those who voted for Trump. The election was rigged and everyone with half a brain realizes it. This election is a total mockery and an embarrassment for this country. It’s a joke. I’m not giving up though and will support Trump. He’s the best person this country has had in decades. Too bad the lame stream media kept his accomplishments from the other half of the country. In this corrupt election everyone loses, the innocent, the President, and those who voted for Biden because they just do not realize what or who they voted for. Remember, very few survived the sinking of the Titanic.

  4. This ATF crap is just another step towards disarming the public. I don’t believe that will happen, but if they try this after what has already transpired this year, God help them. Really there are not enough agents to do this. But if they attempt this, they better bring along plenty of body bags.

  5. Chris Christie wants to cuddle up to whomever holds the Oval Office. He is two faced and always has been! There aren’t many adults left in the room these days.
