Even Barack Obama Ignored Joe Biden
"So there's Biden sort of stumbling around looking for somebody to talk to. Nobody will talk to him. Nobody. He's looking over his shoulder, it's brutal. It's painful to watch. That's the president of the United States in his own house, shunned. Nobody would talk to him. So Biden wandered off looking vacant as a crowd formed around a former president Barack Obama was obviously deeply grateful for the attention. And then it got worse. It got much more poignant than that. Watch Biden try to horn in on the conversation swirling around Obama. Everyone involved in that conversation, including Kamala Harris, was supposedly works for Biden, ignored Biden completely. Biden desperately tried to get Obama's attention. He puts his hand on Obama's shoulder. He even calls him Barack, like their friends. But Obama blows him off. He acts like Biden's not even there. Ask yourself if you have ever in your life seen anything sadder than this.

Did Obama Open a Dangerous Bio-Research Lab in Ukraine?
"Natalie, you broke a story on this, walk our audience through it. Sure, well, as I'm sure everyone knows, the American ruling class, their globalists at heart, they love to outsource and offshore virtually everything that's made America great, whether that's our military, our manufacturing capabilities and our factories, but the other thing we can add to that list, which is something we've documented extensively at the national polls is scientific research and not just any form of scientific research, but particularly very risky scientific research being carried out at BSL three and BSL four facilities as relate to the biosafety levels of different pathogens that these facilities are working with. So as you were talking about, there were some rumblings about the existence of bio labs specifically U.S. funded bio labs existing in Ukraine, which it faced value is kind of absurd given the fact that Ukraine is in a very, very contentious spot geopolitically and geographically. It's proximity to Russia, knowing that Russia is always wanted to invade Ukraine, but nonetheless, these facilities do exist. So the story we put up yesterday at the national polls had to do with what exactly the impetus was for the construction of these facilities and we found through actually finding deleted articles. There are no conspiracy theories, but certainly a little interesting that some of the articles documenting the existence and the creation of these bio labs in Ukraine are now missing from the Internet, but archived versions of these web pages actually show that it was all the way back in 2005 that someone you may have heard of, former senator and former president Barack Obama actually spearheaded the effort in the form of drafting a memorandum of understanding with Ukrainian officials to construct a bio laboratory facility in the city of Odessa, the article goes on it explains that the Department of Defense that is the U.S. Department of Defense also entered into the agreement with their Ukrainian counterparts. And what's even more really, I think, absurd about this story, independent of the fact that all these fact checkers and mainstream media outlets have continued to debunk the existence of the slab is that a 2011 report from the national academies of sciences, which is a taxpayer funded scientific group Anthony Fauci and other very prominent NIH officials have served on the advisory board of this group. They actually put out a report confirming the existence, not just of this single laboratory that Obama helped build. But actually several bio lab facilities in Ukraine.

"Democrats right now. A Democrats are looking as if they are going to get clobbered in the upcoming midterms. The Senate is probably going to be in Republican hands unless Republicans screwed up.

To celebrate their accomplishments on the campaign trail, rather than dwell on the setbacks they faced as they try to defend their slim majority in the midterms this year.

Kelvin Cochran Reminisces About His Childhood Dream to Become a Firefighter
"So Kelvin Cochran, the new book is called facing the fire. The faith that brought America's far cheek through the flames of persecution talk about that. Were you raised in the faith? Did you grow up in the Atlanta area? No, I grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, Eric, and then early 1960s. I was one of those American kids that had 5 years old. There was a fire across the alley that we lived in Shreveport, Louisiana, one Sunday after church. The Shreveport firefighters showed up. And when I watched those firefighters that day, Eric, I was smitten. And I looked at my mom and my brothers and sisters and said, I want to be a firefighter when I grow up. And we were taught as kids that in our country, if you believe in and have faith in God, go to school and get a good education that if we respect the grown-ups and treated other people like we want it to be treated that all of our dreams would come true. And that's the faith that was foundational to my whole life dreams and God used that those truths to make all of my dreams come true. That was back in the days before we all realized that white supremacy makes it impossible for somebody like you to accomplish anything. Here's how to get that in parenthetically. So somehow you because you believed in God because you believed in the American Dream, your dream came true. And I just want to say, you know, when I found out you were the fire chief of all of Atlanta. This is a huge city. You were commended by the president of the United States. Who was it at the time? I can't remember. President Barack Obama? Not ring any bells. Was he president? So you were commended by him. So you're at the top of your game in every

That race and American law intersected how history of slavery and segregation was sort of codified and continue to influence American law Today. Adam Harris is a staff writer at the Atlantic. His most recent article was titled The GOP S Critical Race Theory Obsession, Harris says.

"Before the first debate, which is get the rally's talk to his fans.

And the big gun, if you will, for Joe Biden is Former President Barack Obama is scheduled to appear in Pennsylvania for Joe Biden tomorrow, so he's got people out there making the case for him. But he is going to be preparing in the basement for this debate with President Trump and the interesting move here because they're both doing the same thing they did when they had the first debate. Nobody's changing anything up here. Nobody's trying to do something different. President Trump is not preparing at all outside of having his rallies. Joe Biden is doing all the preparation and I don't know that either one of those moves paid off for them the last time we had this debate I think it would. I think most people would be in accord with this statement that if he ask five people what their thoughts are on Cove it positive negatives. You believe this? The master whatever. Just there thought you get five different answers. The big question today, I think is Are there enough people who are going to vote in this election that are looking at Cove it from the same perspective that the president of the United States is because there was an awful lot of name calling yesterday. You're right. A lot of telling Dr Fauci, among other people wrong, not just wrong, but an idiot on that These idiots all got this wrong at the get Go is if President Trump were somehow lashing out at them for what he had been saying and how he had been acting on some level calling douchey a nice guy, But he's been there for 500 years, and every time he goes on television, there's always a bomb. There's a bigger bomb if you fire him. This guy's a disaster. So yeah, there's I think that that's a great question, Charlie. What? What Americans feeling right now? I think the overwhelming if we can write five different people, five different answers, But I think at the end of the day will come down to a question of how do we get rid of this thing? How do we stop this thing so that we can go back to normal? And does anybody have a plan for that? And what is that plants? We want to hear that laid out? So we've got a better idea if it's just a Hey, let's just get back to normal here quickly and seeing the numbers skyrocket like we're seeing across the country. I don't know that that's the answer. So I think that deserves a healthy debate that we probably won't see but would love to see on Thursday. Appreciate the update, MAN, have a safe day.

"Only excel A-Rated those calls pretty much the only democrat. We haven't heard from his former President Barack Obama. It's possible that ten or twenty years ago, a politician like north could have apologized his way out of this. But the political climate has clearly changed Democrats in particular are showing zero-tolerance especially among their own for behavior that they have condemned President Trump for and if north of won't go on his own what do Democrats do joining me now are two members of the Congressional Black caucus, caring. Of California is the chair of the CBC who joins us from Los Angeles. And congressman Donald the kitchen of Virginia is also in CBC leadership. He has also been an important player and participant in Virginia politics going back to the mid nineties. Welcome to both of you congressman mccutchen, let me start with you. I know you've called first resignation. Is there anything he can do that would somehow convince you to give him more time in office? No. And I consider Ralph a friend. We were elected to the Senate at the same time. But look he's lost the authority to lead. He he's lost authority to govern. He has to resign is in the best interest of the Commonwealth is in the best interest of the party congresswoman bass, why is this so important nationally in your mind for governor governor north to go well because I think he's been completely dishonest and disingenuous he knew this pitcher was there, and he could've come clean and talk to African Americans that he's close to decades ago. And I think given the overall climate around race in this country, especially over the last two years. It's completely unacceptable. The good news is though is that there is a zero tol. Lawrence and people do understand. And he needs to resign immediately to stop the pain in Virginia. And a frankly around the nation congressman Basso, I want to follow up on something that governor north himself said yesterday, he was making the case that if he quickly left office, then this gets swept under the rug, and we don't have a conversation. He's trying to make the case that somehow him staying in office that in some ways it's the harder thing to do in it forces conversation that we don't normally have on race. What that no he's he's forcing the wrong conversation. What he should do is resign. And then if he has any integrity at all he should participate in that conversation. You know, he was completely disingenuous when he talked about. He didn't understand this in nineteen Eighty-four. And that this was commonplace. He's basically saying that he participated in it. And especially when he described the time that he did the Martin Michael Jackson impression he even acted at the press conference like he was willing to moonwalk into his wife stopped him. It shows that he still does not understand the seriousness of his actions cars from a kitchen. Have you talked with governor in the last forty eight hours and if so. What's his explanation to you? I haven't spoken to him since Friday. I believe in that time he was apologetic for haven't been in the photograph, and and that sort of thing. So I was really surprised when the next day he comes out and says, it's not him. That was a quite a surprise to me. I want to play something else that he said congressman mckeon. And that is he was talking about the climate of the eighties where he grew up here. He is governor north. Why did not appear in this photo? I am not surprised by its appearance in the yearbook in the place and time where I grew up many actions that we rightfully recognize as horri- today for commonplace congressman mckeon, this is one year before the state of Jinya made history at that time and elected the first African American statewide office holder in Doug louder is Lieutenant governor nineteen eighty-five. Nineteen sixty four that would have made sense to me nineteen Eighty-four in eastern Virginia. This is the son of a judge, a schoolteacher mind. You is that a explanation that you can accept no my family's been Virginia. And I've lived in the Richmond area since third grade, and I can tell you that the best of my knowledge it was not coming place in nineteen Eighty-four. Let's assume without conceding that it wasn't e- commonplace. Slavery was commonplace. That doesn't make a right massive resistance was commonplace. That doesn't make it right. Jim crow was commonplace. That didn't make it right. And so two if black face was commonplace in nineteen Eighty-four that doesn't make it right?.
