The Argument Against Idiots: Sarah Palin vs Joe Biden - Part Deux

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'Sarah Palin vs Joe Biden: Part Deux'

What the liberal whiners say:

'OK please. By now even YOU have to realize that while Sarah Palin's kinda hot, she CAN'T be allowed to be one heartbeat away from the Presidency?!?!?! I mean, put her poster up on your bedroom wall, but DON'T put her in the White House! She has all the intelligence of a bathroom bowl brush!'

'How about her blatant lie about troop levels in Iraq returning to "pre-surge" levels? What a liar!'

'As long as we're discussing debate lies, Palin lied about Obama voting in favor of higher taxes on "families" making as little as $42,000 a year.

'OK, if you want to vote for her after she says she has foreign policy experience, just because Russia's on one side of Alaska and Canada's on the other, go ahead!'

'All right, Mr. Commie-baiter...why haven't you talked about this...speaking of Russia...Sarah Palin actually attended college in MOSCOW?!?!?'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Sarah Palin is actually very bright. In fact, during the debate, according to the "Global Language Monitor", Palin spoke at a 10th grade level, Joe Biden...only 8th grade.

2. Yeah, troop levels have come way down, but they are slightly higher than pre-surge. I guess you didn't mind Joe Biden's flat out lie that McCain "voted the exact same way" as Obama on the budget bill that contained an increase on singles making as little as $42,000 a year? He didn't. He voted the same way as Obama on an amendment to that bill, which didn't have anything to do with increasing taxes.

3. There again, you have a point. Obama actually voted for higher taxes on single individuals making as little as $42,000. Also during that debate though, "average" Joe did challenge us to go with him "down to Katie's Restaurant on Union Street in Wilmington or walk into Home Depot", where he spent a lot of time, and ask anyone there about George Bush's administration. Except, that would be really hard to do without a "flux capacitor" and a Delorean to travel back in time with. Katie's went out of business 25-30 years ago. You might still be able to go to Home Depot with Joe and help him pick up a wrench for the plumbing repairs I'm sure he often handles after that long train ride home he talks about all the time.

4. Her foreign policy experience is limited...but so is OBAMA's...and HE, is applying for President. At least she didn't say she would meet with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions, and then lie about it, and then have her running mate lie about it. Biden also said that the U.S. spends more in Iraq in one month than it has in Afghanistan in six or seven years. He was only off by 2000 percent. And remember this line? "President Bush insisted on elections in the West Bank, when I said, and others said, and Barack Obama said, 'Big mistake. Hamas will win. You'll legitimize them.'" The fact is, Obama had only been in office a few days when the election took place, and there is absolutely no public record of Obama having said that. But maybe he said it to William Ayers, quietly in his ear, as they sat in a pew at Trinity United Church together, listening to Jeremiah Wright attack America?

5. Well, you got me there, she sure did. Moscow, Idaho. Where the University of Idaho is located.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
