The Department of Justice announced a major crackdown on a Mexican drug cartel operating in the United States and south of the border this week, revealing "Project Python" resulted in more than 600 arrests and 350 indictment for serious crimes. The operations of Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) were at the center of the operation, which was led by the Drug Enforcement Agency. 
“Project Python marks the most comprehensive action to date in the Department of Justice’s campaign to disrupt, dismantle, and ultimately destroy CJNG,” Criminal Division Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski said.  
“When President Trump signed an Executive Order prioritizing the dismantlement of transnational criminal organizations, the Department of Justice answered the call and took direct aim at CJNG.  We deemed CJNG one of the highest-priority transnational organized crime threats we face.  And with Project Python, we are delivering results in the face of that threat for the American people,” he continued. 
Further, the Treasury Department issued sanctions on a number of businesses linked to Mexican cartels this week.  
"The United States is committed to preventing and combating narcotics trafficking globally.  The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) yesterday designated four Mexican businesses pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act) due to their links to the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG) and the Los Cuinis Drug Trafficking Organization (Los Cuinis), two of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in Mexico," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released in a statement earlier this week. 
"The Kingpin Act blocks all property and interests in property within the United States, or within the possession or control of any U.S. person, which are owned or controlled by designated individuals or entities.  The Kingpin Act also generally prohibits transactions or dealings by U.S. persons, or persons within the United States, in property or interests in property of designated individuals or entities," he continued.
According to the Treasury and State Departments, the sanctions apply to the following businesses: 
-International Investments Holding S.A. de C.V.
-GBJ de Colima, 
-S.A. de C.V., a gas station company located in Villa de Alvarez, Colima, Mexico; 
-Corporativo Sushi Provi, S. de R.L. de C.V.
-Master Reposterias Y Restaurantes, S.A. de C.V.  
-Mexican cabin rental businesses Cabanas La Loma en Renta and Cabanas La Loma Tapalpa

JOE BIDEN PUT IN HOME FOR THE SENILE. HE FORGOT HE WAS RUNNING FOR SOMETHING. THOUGHT HE WAS RUNNING FROM SOMETHING - "They were savvy enough to know that Sanders would be a disaster; they are shrewd enough to know that Joe Biden is senile." PATRICIA McCARTHY

Biden's Virtual Town Hall Was a Complete Train Wreck

Somebody thought it was a good idea to have 77-year-old Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden host a virtual town hall event on Friday. Who would have guessed that the same candidate who told Americans to listen to their record players at a debate last year might run into some technical difficulties? 
Awkward video of people sitting in front of their computers and random audio feeds dominated the first 14 minutes of the 38-minute event. After a short introduction by Dick Durbin, Biden finally made an appearance around the 15-minute mark and began speaking – or began moving his mouth at least – because there was no audio from Mr. Biden for the first minute or so. 
When Biden's audio did come through, it was garbled and cut in and out, denying viewers the privilege of catching who knows how many gaffes. Perhaps that was by design... Anyway, the first half-hour of the 38-minute town hall was a complete waste. The problem was finally rectified around minute 31 when somebody gave the former vice president a cell phone to capture his audio.
"Am I on camera?" Biden can be heard asking at one point.
Biden then struggled to recall the date of the next presidential inauguration.
While discussing his promise to expand Obamacare, Biden said, "... But even I can't do that for another two years -- another year -- between now and November. Or actually January." 
And while the candidate was discussing the Endangered Species Act, he seemed to forget he was even on camera and started pacing around the room. His team, surely exhausted at this point, put an image up on the screen to obscure the candidate as he wandered about. 
It was a disaster. 
The campaign apologized for the problem-riddled event.

Nolte: Joe Biden Forgets Year, Meanders Off Frame in Disastrous Livestream

Grandpa Joe Biden wants to run the country and save us from coronavirus when he can’t even run a livestream and has no idea what year it is.
On Friday, Grandpa Joe held what his campaign billed as a “virtual town hall” in Illinois. In my colleague Kyle Olson’s must-read reporting on the event, you will discover the whole thing was a fiasco, like something out of a sitcom. Guests appeared and then disappeared. The sound was garbled. People were introduced, followed by an awkward pause when they didn’t appear. Babies cried…
“Biden seemed to be reading from a teleprompter, but the broadcast suffered from severe tech issues, as Biden’s words were caught in a feedback loop, muddying the whole presentation and making the candidate nearly indecipherable,” Olson reported.
After starting two hours late, the fiasco lasted about 45 minutes. For my money, this clip from The Honeymooners, where Ralph and Ed attempt to do a live television commercial, is the funniest thing ever captured on film. Sounds like Grandpa Joe just took that crown.
Technical difficulties, however, are technical difficulties. That doesn’t mean those technical difficulties are not newsworthy. After all, we are talking about a major presidential campaign, about the competency, or lack thereof, of the people hand-picked by Biden to run his campaign. So it is a bit disconcerting that Joe and his staffers were unable to put on the equivalent of a video podcast, something millions of everyday Americans are able to do every day in their basements without a hitch.
But what about Joe’s performance?
How did the 985-yead-old Democrat frontrunner do?
The media tell us that any criticism of Grandpa Joe’s mental acuity is a hoax, is fake news, is a desperate and desperately unfair personal attack…
And then this happens:

In a bizarre, meandering livestream put on by Joe Biden's campaign today, he forgets what year it is and when, if he doesn't lose, he would be in office.

At another point, he seemingly forgets he's on a live stream and walks out of frame. The feed cuts away to a logo instead.

“Even I can’t do that for another two years — another year, between now and November … … … or actually, January … …. …. …. …. ….  But to be covered.”
For the Biden-challenged, allow me to lay this out as simply as possible. The date of the livestream was March 13, 2020. The presidential election will take place in November of  2020. The next president will be sworn in in January of 2021…
Did you get that?
Would you like me to type it again slower?
“Even I can’t do that for another two years.” No. There are only ten months between now and the next inauguration.
“…another year, between now and November.” No. There are only eight months between now and November.
“…or actually January.” Why don’t we warm you up some oatmeal and see who’s guest-starring on Matlock with that nice Andy Griffith today?
And then Joe shuffles off to watch Matlock while rambling on about estuaries and international species.
Watch the full virtual town hall here:
Joe Biden Campaign
Volume 90%
Are Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) really going to do this? Do they really think they can hide this guy for the next eight months? Do they really think they can scream hoax every time his feeble mind and body appear feeble for the next eight months?
Watch this… And this is not a video sent back to us from the future. This is not video sent to us from President Biden’s last day in office in January of 2029 when he’s 87-years-old. This video was taken Tuesday:

Just now: @JoeBiden was asked by @mikememoli if he has any regrets about his testy exchange with the voter this morning, noting that both the Sanders and Trump campaigns are targeting him about it.

“I’m surprised that Sanders is joining Trump. It’s surprising,” Biden replied.

Early on, he’s self consciously trying not to shuffle, he has that waxy look on his face, and then he almost falls over.
Are Democrats really going to do this?
And here’s video of Grandpa Joe screaming that someone’s “full of shit” about something called an “AR-14.”
Honestly, outside of a nursing home when the power goes out during Wheel of Fortune, I’ve never seen anything like this…

Today Joe Biden argued with a voter, called the AR-15 an "AR-14" and then threatened to slap the voter in the face. This is an old man losing control of his mind. At what point do Democrats realize what a giant mistake they’ve made backing senile Joe?

Don’t believe your lying eyes.
Do believe your elite betters…

Don’t you understand? There’s a conspiracy afoot to get Joe to yell and shuffle and forget the year and meander and walk off camera…
Even though Democrat presidential candidates like Cory Booker, Julian Castro, and Tim Ryan were the first to express concerns about Biden’s mental acuity, it’s all a Trumpian plot!

BIDEN: DEAD MAN WALKING.... Along side Hillary Clinton pushing Joe over the edge and into the grave.

Joe Biden is as corrupt a politician as there ever was, who absolutely is guilty and compromised by his efforts to enrich his ne'er-do-well son, his brother, sister and daughter. 

Hillary is also a narcissist of the worst order, the kind who never takes responsibility for the havoc she has wrought on the lives of others, let alone her country.  She is in fact one of the most corrupt politicians ever to prevail for so many years, to become fabulously wealthy for her many deceits and crimes.  

A Biden candidacy — what's the plan? There is always a plan

Why, when Joe Biden's mental decline is so obvious, are so many former Obamaphiles pledging their spurious support for the man?  Something's up. It is beyond clear that Biden is not up to the job. This fact cannot escape the notice of Susan Rice, James Comey, John Brennan, et al., all those conspirators who tried so treasonously hard to destroy Donald Trump.  They surely know better than most that Biden is a dead man walking.  So why the all-out campaign to support his candidacy?  Hmmm.
They must have a plan.  Is their plan to submarine Joe before the convention, admit he is incapacitated, and put up a heretofore untested candidate at a brokered convention?  Or do they have a plan to appoint a V.P. candidate they assume will become president in short order?  Perhaps, as Joel Gilbert speculated here yesterday, the plan is to install Hillary as the candidate to run against President Trump in a last-ditch effort to derail his fabulously successful presidency.  They certainly have some devious scheme to replace Biden by hook or crook, for his dementia cannot possibly have escaped their notice.
The now available Hillary documentary for all to see is probably meant to prime the public for her potential last-minute candidacy.  It is not very likely to be successful.  She is the kind of harridan who makes Elizabeth Warren seem kind and gentle!  Hillary is also a narcissist of the worst order, the kind who never takes responsibility for the havoc she has wrought on the lives of others, let alone her country.  She is in fact one of the most corrupt politicians ever to prevail for so many years, to become fabulously wealthy for her many deceits and crimes.  She has been a blight upon the U.S. since she gained power as the wife of the governor of Arkansas.  She spent forty years covering up for her husband's crimes against women and has somehow lived to tell no tales.  Her fans are certifiable morons, susceptible to any and all of the propaganda the left propels into the mainstream media.  She has yet to endorse Biden.  To support his candidacy is to deny his indisputable advancing dementia. 
Credit to the voters of South Carolina is due for sure: they understand the horror an American-hating communist would perpetrate upon this great nation.  A Bernie Sanders presidency would be the end of America as founded.  Those who support him either are tragically ignorant of the genocidal reality of socialism wherever tried or hate their own nation so much they are willing to suffer the monstrous consequences of electing a communist president.
Make no mistake: Bernie Sanders intends to be a communist president if elected.  Like Castro, Maduro, Chávez, Lenin, and all the dictators he so admires, he would be a tyrant.  For nearly fifty years, he has wanted to punish those who fend for themselves and succeed.  A man who admires Fidel Castro must never come to power in America.  Never.  Bless those voters in South Carolina who know this.
Sadly, Joe Biden was their only other choice.  Chances are, those same voters will vote for President Trump in November.  They were savvy enough to know that Sanders would be a disaster; they are shrewd enough to know that Joe Biden is senile.  Most of us of a certain age recognize advancing senility when we see it because we have seen it ourselves; we know the heartbreak.  Joe is done.  So what is their plan? 
Whatever it is, it cannot be good for the American people.  The left never considers the American people, never gives a thought to its constituents.  Leftists are always and only about power and their continued access to the wealth that power provides for them.  They are certain of their own superiority, their due privilege to lead and control the rest of us.  The fact that Mike Bloomberg actually thought he could step in and purchase the presidency with his billions is proof of the left's mindset.  His failure to succeed was delicious; the American people cannot be bought.  Some of them can be fooled for a while, but in the end, their good sense prevails.  That is how we elected the best president in decades, Donald Trump.  They will re-elect him in November despite the left and left media's never-ending attempts to destroy his presidency.  When the history of the left's wholesale assault on America, its founding principles and values from the 1960s on, is written, it will prove that the nation was under constant assault by the anti-American left.  The left has successfully indoctrinated two generations of university students to loathe their country.  Leftists have successfully made race, class, and sex the defining characteristics of every person, who must be a designated member of a victim group or an oppressor.  They give no credence to the value of the individual or to any individual's character.  MLK is rolling over in his grave. 
All of those leftists coming out of the woodwork to support Joe Biden know only too well that he is an intellectual lightweight, "wrong on every foreign policy issue for forty years," (Robert Gates), a mean-spirited bastard who delighted in destroying Robert Bork and humiliating the great Clarence Thomas. He is as corrupt a politician as there ever was, who absolutely is guilty and compromised by his efforts to enrich his ne'er-do-well son, his brother, sister and daughter. The thought of this man even becoming close to the presidency is abhorrent. Whatever his pseudo-supporters have in mind, it is not good for the American people; not one bit. We will soon learn what their plan is. Chances are it won't be pretty and chances are the American people will not fall for it.

The Democratic Party Is Wounded and Dangerous


Beware the wounded animal.  In pain and desperation, it will do violent things.  It seems to me no coincidence that Joe Biden's big win on Super Tuesday was followed by Democratic senator Chuck Schumer threatening conservative members of the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Joe Biden is hardly Lancelot to President Trump's dragon.  The Democrats and the Deep State needed a first-class warrior; instead, their best option is a walking advertisement for Alzheimer's awareness.  In his best days, Joe Biden was the political equivalent of Jack McCall, shooting his adversaries in the back.  When he wasn't using his position of power for financial gain or stealing other people's words, he was helping his family line their own pockets.  Today, he's a disoriented and stumbling shell of an unimportant political hack who looks on in confusion while his wife does his fighting for him.  If you've ever wondered what happens to the shriveled soul of a lifetime liar and Democratic swindler, just cast your eyes upon Old Joe.  He's a walking, talking effigy of Democratic corruption and amorality.  He's what the Democratic Party usually keeps far off the main stage for the back-alley entertainment; now he's the main event, but no amount of stick-prodding by Donna Brazile or Tom Perez is going to turn Joe Biden into Fred Astaire.  He's a freak-show carnival attraction at best, amazing onlookers by his ability to occasionally jumble audible words together into a sentence.  The Democrats needed a man who could command a movement; all they got was a man who can barely control his own.
I'm not saying President Trump's re-election is in the bag.  Far from it.  We've never seen such an array of villains acting in concert to take down an American president.  The Democratic Party has most of the permanent bureaucratic Deep State (as well as stealthy anti-Trump Republicans), Wall Street, Russia, Iran, China, Venezuela, cosmopolitan Europe, global warming doomsayers, the Middle East's worst terrorists, and domestic Antifa terrorists here at home all actively working to dislodge President Trump from the White House.  In the past, the chiefs of our intelligence agencies and clandestine services retired into relative obscurity, cognizant that duty commanded their silent withdrawal into the pages of history.  After orchestrating a coup against the American president, however, it is not unusual to see the former heads of Obama's CIA, FBI, and NSC all tirelessly justifying their criminal acts on cable news each night.  The corporate news media and institutional government have spent years trying to gin up enough hysteria in the nation that mock beheadings of the president and ritual re-enactments of his assassination during summer theater might lead the American people to clamor for the real thing.
So, no, the 2020 election will not be over until all the votes have been counted on November 3, and it becomes clear that we have successfully preserved Western civilization for at least a little while longer from this most recent manifestation of Vienna's bloody 1683 siege.  All I am saying is that Joe Biden was never meant to be the establishment's champion for resurrecting their oligarchic power.  They wanted a formidable presidential nominee, someone who could check all the right identity politics boxes while stringing words together that were substantively meaningless while singularly inspiring.  Instead, they're settling for a politician past his expiration date who sounds less crème de la crème and more soused in crème de menthe.  The Democratic Party may depend on dead voters to win elections, but running dead candidates is another thing altogether.
So just because the cable news anchors and Carville clones are all high-fiving each other and cheering for managing to narrowly prevent a communist disciple of Stalin and Castro from sewing up the Democratic nomination for president by the beginning of March, don't forget how disappointed they are at heart.  If Biden goes on to clinch the nomination, the Democratic Party will have managed to take all the aloof, plain, manila-folder blandness of John Kerry and combine it with the alertness and energy of a nursing home after pill rounds.  This is the one whom the commentariat is celebrating right now, the guy Obama and the gang blocked from running in 2016 because they felt him not quite up for the challenge when he was four years younger.  The vice president during the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression, the wordsmith who marveled at Obama for being strangely "articulate" for a black guy, and the obtrusive shoulder-rubber whose chief political instinct was to sniff the hair of the wives and daughters of White House officials and visiting dignitaries.  Imagine being in such dire straits because the previous Democratic president so hollowed out the party's future by losing over a thousand elected officials across the country during his time in office that the last, great hope to beat President Trump this year is just hoping to make it to bed each afternoon before saying something so inappropriate or illogical or ridiculous that Red Bernie becomes the Democrat's Dear Leader by default.  For every minute of his few wakeful hours, his handlers have to be on constant guard against the possibility that a voice in Biden's head will scream, "Oh, look, a young child with wonderful-smelling hair."  "Comeback Joe"?  More like "Come back, Joe!"
The Democrats and the Deep State have spent the last four years constructing the greatest wag-the-dog spectacle America's ever seen in an attempt to cover up the malfeasance and criminality of the last administration, while preventing the current one from achieving too many victories.  Considering that Brennan and Comey are still free and Obama and Hillary are still smiling, they've been remarkably successful.  But the Mueller obfuscation and Schiff circus are behind us, the dance music of delay is dying down, and the Democrats' and Deep State's ability to keep pushing back their day of reckoning is coming to an end.  If they don't win in 2020, they cannot keep justice at bay, regardless of how stacked in their favor it has always been in the past.  And standing in the gap as their last-ditch prospect to save them from President Trump's re-election and spare them from long delayed judgment is none other than Corn Pop's archenemy.  The one "reasonable" Democrat in the race who has already burnished his "moderate" credentials by fully embracing Bernie's Green New Deal, Warren's Medicare for All, and Beto's door-to-door gun confiscation.  Nothing says "electable centrist Democrat" like "D'oh!" Biden's full tilt toward Marxist socialism.  No wonder Chuck Schumer sounds like some injured animal in the forest, lashing out at tree branches all around him.  That's what small, weak, dying creatures do when they know the end is near.
