11:17 AM: McCarthy says Trump sufficiently denounced white supremacist groups during debate.

Source: Washington Post

At a news conference at the Capitol on Wednesday morning, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) defended President Trump’s comments about white supremacist organizations during the previous night’s debate, saying the president sufficiently denounced such groups.

“Well, I think the president has been very clear that he’s against anybody committing violence in the streets,” McCarthy said when asked about Trump’s remarks. He pointed to the president’s recent pledge to designate the Ku Klux Klan and the loosely organized “antifa” movement as terrorist organizations.

“I was concerned when I listened to Joe Biden try to claim that antifa was not a group,” McCarthy continued. “I don’t know what’s on the streets then. I don’t know what’s causing a lot of these problems.”

Pressed further about Trump’s comments — specifically his “stand back and stand by” remark — McCarthy doubled down on his defense of the president, saying Trump clearly denounced white supremacist groups in his initial response to moderator Chris Wallace.

This is pathetic. The Proud Boys are celebrating. They heard Trump loud and clear.

If you can't condemn White Supremacy in the United States, in 2020, YOU SUCK!

And you have no business being in ANY position of power in this multi-racial, multi-cultural society.

That’s it. End of story.

SHELLSHOCKED after the debate? You are not alone. That was ABUSE.

Nicolle Wallace explains how Trump's debate behavior (toward Biden, Chris Wallace, the American People, and the World) was abusive, and it was intentional.

I nominate General James Mattis for Secretary of Defense in the Biden administration.

If you have read Bob Woodward’s book, Rage, you will fully understand. Mattis is a true patriot, the epitome of what it means to be a GOOD public servant and a tireless steward of America’s military might who is committed to civilian control of the military.

I don’t know whether or not this is what the author intended, but Mattis is the STAR of the first half of Woodward’s latest book.

"Superspreader" (A beautiful nod to Stevie Wonder's "Superstition")

This is insane, but it’s happening. Trump lied, and people died. He keeps lying, and more people are dying.

For Immediate Release--Magat Boat Captain Fails to Go Down with Ship

ANHC (Antifa Navy High Command)

A Magat Boat Captain whose vessel was sunk by the Antifa Submarine Fleet in the historic Battle of Lake Travis explains his refusal to accept a life-vest due to his desire to go down with his ship.

Following our historic victory at the Battle of Lake Travis, the Antifa Navy High Command extends its appreciation and respect to the brave citizen-warriors who participated in the battle and apologizes to the hungry poor whose food banks generously donated all the soup expended in the campaign. Your sacrifice shall not be in vain!

Preliminary casualty lists are being assembled, but we won’t know the full extent of the carnage until the Magats file all of their insurance claims. Magats, obviously, believe in “personal responsibility.” That’s why they are itching to have their insurance companies pick up the tab for their own, reckless stupidity.

More information forthcoming as it becomes available.

The Battle of Lake Travis--a correction (I am in trouble.)

Having posted, earlier today, a theory regarding our overwhelming victory in the Battle of Lake Travis, I was recently contacted by the top brass of the Antifa Navy and “strongly advised” to issue an immediate retraction and correction of my previous announcement on this forum.

I speculated that Seal Team Antifa was responsible for our decimation of the Magat Armada by use of carefully-planted canned-soup mines in the Armada‘s path. I was worng. It was, after all, the Antifa submarine fleet that deserves sole credit for our victory in this historic battle.

Here’s the photographic evidence:
