“Right Jab And Left Jab” was created because we have two commenters that post on a daily basis either in our “IS IT TRUE” or “Readers Forum” columns concerning National or International issues.
Joe Biden and Ronald Reagan’s comments are mostly about issues of national interest.  The majority of our “IS IT TRUE” columns are about local or state issues, so we have decided to give Mr. Biden and Mr. Reagan exclusive access to our newly created “LEFT JAB and RIGHT JAB”  column. They now have this post to exclusively discuss national or world issues that they feel passionate about.
We shall be posting the “LEFT JAB” AND “RIGHT JAB” several times a week.  Oh, “LEFT JAB” is a liberal view and the “RIGHT JAB is representative of the more conservative views. Also, any reader who would like to react to the written comments of the two gentlemen is free to do so.

  1. Having watch as much of the Dem debates as my soul would tolerate, forget Crazy Uncle Joe. On display was a truly wacked out really crazy Uncle Bernie who couldn’t hold it together when faced with attacks on his positions from the “moderate” candidates, who can see what their party is descending to. I doubt if tonight’s will be as entertaining unless Kamala tries to rip Crazy Uncle Joe’s political neck out.

  2. It was obvious there was 1 winner of the clown debate last night, Trump:

    Marianne Williamson Dominates Google Searches in 49 States After Democrat Debate

    Self-help author Marianne Williamson was the most searched Democrat candidate during the second Democrat debate on Tuesday, according to Google Trends….

    Williamson captivated viewers with her meandering and unconventional responses and phrases such as “dark psychic force” and “emotional turbulence.” At the last debate, she won attention for saying her plan to defeat President Trump was to “harness love.”…

    Cynthia, from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, said: “When the ‘forces’ allow her to speak, she’s slam-dunkin’ it.” The only question, she said, was “whether the country is ready for a Jewish female, speaking almost prophetic, Christ-like words,” she said….


    • Mueller Who? All 10 Democrat Candidates Forget to Mention Robert Mueller or Russia in First CNN Debate

      …Then the Mueller Report came out and exonerated President Trump.
      And then last week a doddering and senescent Robert Mueller nailed the coffin shut with his testimony before Congress.

      On Tuesday night during the first CNN Democratic presidential debate Russia did not come up once.
      And Robert Mueller was never mentioned!
      Not once!


      • Barry who??

        The Invisible Man
        Democrats debate as if the Obama presidency never happened

        If you listen to Democrats discuss their solutions to political challenges these days, it’s easy to forget the fact that Barack Obama served as President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. His name is rarely mentioned, and his accomplishments rarely acknowledged much less celebrated.

        Such was the case at Tuesday night’s debate in Detroit, when Mayor Pete Buttigieg talked about summoning “the courage to walk away from the past.” When Elizabeth Warren said our “problems didn’t start with Donald Trump,” and proceeded to trash the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement negotiated by the Obama administration. It’s easy to forget that Democrats passed, and Obama signed into a law, something called the Affordable Care Act when every candidate on stage was lamenting the woeful state of healthcare affordability in this country….

        Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner, has for the most part passionately defended the Obama legacy, especially when it comes to health care. It is basically the central message of Biden’s campaign. He’ll most likely continue to do so during the second debate night in Detroit on Wednesday, where he’ll also be a prime target for rivals.

        Obama is working on his third memoir.


  3. Karma finds the “Collusion Delusion” peddlers:

    Rachel Maddow Falls To Fifth In July Ratings, As Hannity, Carlson Dominate Cable News

    …Maddow has seen her ratings decline dramatically in the months since the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which did not find evidence that President Donald Trump or members of his campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election….


    • More bad news for the “Collusion Delusion” peddlers and their victims like Ronnie:

      BREAKING: Federal Judge Dismisses DNC Lawsuit Against Trump Campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks with Prejudice

      When the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced that they had filed a lawsuit against the Trump campaign, Wikileaks and the Russian Federation alleging that those entities conspired to conduct a cyberattack against them before the 2016 election, many liberal observers thought it would uncover the smoking gun showing Donald Trump’s criminal and illicit behavior.

      But the resistance was wrong yet again. Earlier today, a federal judge dismissed the suit with prejudice and denied a sanctions motion against the Trump campaign….


  4. The lunacy of the far left:

    Republican Congressional Candidate Amy Phan Labeled a ‘White Supremacist’ for Supporting Trump

    A Republican Congressional candidate for California’s 47th district in 2020, Amy Phan West, has accused her Democratic opponent of intolerance and starting an online slanderous campaign against her and her family.

    West, a legal Vietnamese immigrant, is pitched in the 2020 election against Democrat Alan Lowenthal, who has been representing California’s 47th district since 2013.

    The Republican candidate, who is married to a white man, claims supporters of her Democratic opponents labeled her a Klu Klux Klan member and that their comments show their prejudices and intolerance toward her because she doesn’t share their leftist ideologies.

    “Those individuals vilifying and targeting my family online with outlandish and bigoted posts brought to our attention exposes how radical and unhinged the leftist supporters of my Democratic opponent have become,” West said in a statement to The Epoch Times….

  5. Spot on article:

    For Being Such an Idiot, Trump is Pretty Smart

    We have been hearing now for four years, ever since that escalator ride at Trump Tower, how then-candidate, now-President Trump is such an idiot. The media, Democrats, and NeverTrumpers, virtually in lockstep assured us that Trump would never be the Republican nominee. When he was, they doubled down promising that he would never be president. Every so-called opinion poll confirmed their predictions.

    So who turned out to be smart, winning the White House, and who turned out to be a bunch of buffoons? Yet they still couldn’t admit that they were wrong, predicting that Trump would be impeached or that he would resign from office under intense pressure from critics and scandal. From Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti to Robert Mueller to Megan Rapinoe, each one was portrayed as the dragon-slayer ready to bring down Trump.

    All have come and gone like the seasons, bringing down nothing but their reputations and what little integrity they might have possessed. Yet Trump haters won’t give up. Trump is still too stupid and incompetent to be president, they tell us. He is an embarrassment to the country and the world.

    Yet on Friday, July 19, Trump sits at 49 percent total approval in the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll, four points higher than his predecessor, Mr. Perfect, exactly eight years ago. These approval numbers are despite what many have described as a bad week for the president with his “unforced error” of going after the four lovely patriots of the “Jihad Squad” and telling them that if America is so bad, they are welcome to “go back” to somewhere, anywhere, that is more to their liking.

    Brit Hume, godfather of the Republican D.C. establishment, not a NeverTrumper, but more of a SometimesTrumper, said Trump’s tweets were “politically stupid.” When Rush Limbaugh and others suggested that Trump’s tweets were strategic and calculated rather than stupid, Hume dismissed this immediately: “I think that’s too smart by half, too clever by half, Trump couldn’t put something like this together, are you kidding me?”

    Of course, Trump couldn’t put something like this together. He isn’t clever enough. Yet he was smart enough to defeat 17 competent and experienced contenders for the Republican nomination in 2016 despite having never run for political office. And he is still president after two and a half years of nonstop negative media coverage and criticism from Democrats and many Republicans.

    Reuters reluctantly reported: “Republican support for Trump rises after racially charged tweets.” Jake Tapper, liberal CNN mouthpiece, had to acknowledge, “Dem sources admit Trump’s ‘brilliant’ move to make stars of AOC, Omar.”

    So, which is it? Did Trump stupidly make a racist, sexist, xenophobic, nativist, white-supremacist tweet as the media and NeverTrumpers claim? Or did he just make the Jihad Squad the new face of the Democratic Party?

    Who hasn’t been in the news this past week? How about the 20-plus Democrats vying for the party’s nomination to go up against Goliath Trump next summer? Other than news of the next Democrat primary debate or who is ahead of who in the latest poll, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and Pete Buttigieg are no longer newsworthy.

    Instead they, along with Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat party, have been forced to rally around Ocasio-Cortez and Omar. That seems a pretty smart move by Trump….

    With a few tweets and comments, Trump has rebranded the Democratic Party as the party of socialism, with its new party leaders viewed negatively by the vast majority of swing voters.

    Are Republicans fleeing the party over Trump’s tweets? Hardly. GOP support for Trump rose this past week. His rally in North Carolina was as enthusiastic as ever. And those hapless Democrats running for their party’s nomination became yesterday’s news as quickly as Trump-slayer of-the-week Megan Rapinoe.

    Democrats, in a fleeting moment of honesty, understand the brilliance of Trump’s tweets and framing of the Democrat party, as they admitted to Jake Tapper. Rasmussen also reported that by a 42 to 29 percent margin, likely Democrat voters want the party to be more like Nancy Pelosi than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Yet thanks to President Trump, Nancy Pelosi has had to shift towards Ocasio-Cortez rather than vice versa, defending the Jihad Squad against Trump’s tweets.

    For Pelosi it’s the path of least resistance. If she denounces the squad, there will be an internal civil war within her party. If she defends them, she makes them the face of the party. Trump has put her in a box.

    Some may call it 4-D chess. Instead it may be decades of street smarts developed in the trenches of the New York City real estate development world, along with the branding experience of running a successful television reality show for a decade. What it is not is Trump being stupid.

    It’s not just politics. Trump’s supposed stupidity is on display elsewhere. His tough trade war with China is reaping benefits. The U.S. economy is humming along and as the Wall Street Journal reports: “China’s State-Driven Growth Model Is Running Out of Gas.” Trump has visited North Korea and has a constructive and personal relationship with Kim Jong Un, a first for an American president.

    Mexico is suddenly securing its southern border and Trump is doing via executive order what Congress is too lazy to do for asylum-seeking and birthright citizenship.

    Spygate is ready to unfold and burst, with declassifications and hopefully accountability for its wrongdoers.

    Jeffrey Epstein, the latest Trump-slayer for the wishful thinking Democrats and media, will be anything but. Does anyone really believe that if Epstein had dirt on Trump, we wouldn’t have known it before the election? Epstein and the Clintons were good pals. If Epstein had incriminating photos of videos of Trump with underage girls, Hillary would have used this in 2016 rather than paying millions for a phony dossier. Instead like everything else, Epstein will likely backfire on the left, as Vanity Fair described, “It’s going to be staggering, the amount of names.”

    For being so stupid, Trump continues to outsmart the smart set on the left, the media geniuses, Hollywood, academia, and the Democrat party. His opponents keep calling him an idiot and he runs circles around them. Trump is winning, and his supporters are not yet tired of it.


    • President Trump is playing political 3D chess, while the Democrats are reduced to name calling like socialists at a Berkley Cal. rally. All the major cities with chronic inner-city gang, drug, gun violence and poverty all have Democrat mayors, most of which have declared their cities to be sanctuary cities where immigration law enforcement is openly opposed. Chicago, LA, Detroit, Baltimore, NYC, etc.
