Joe Biden has made a lot of promises this election year. Among them is something that sounds good to liberals, but in practice will destroy small businesses. One Biden promise should terrify small business owners more than most, however. He says he will raise taxes on a large percentage of them.

In an attempt to appeal to leftists, Biden has promised on many occasions not to raise taxes on anyone making under $400,000 per year. “Nobody making under 400,000 bucks would have their taxes raised, period, bingo,” Biden told CNBC in May. He repeated this claim in an ABC interview in August. Biden has promised to undo President Trump’s historic tax cuts but vows that there will be “no new taxes” for anyone making more than $400,000 per year. At the same time, he says that he won’t raise taxes on small businesses. But as Larry Elder explains, there’s a problem with that. Many small business owners make more than 400,000 per year.

As Elder notes, President Trump seems to have given Biden a pass on that at the September 29 debate in Cleveland. Biden is very eager to raise taxes on Americans who are the lifeblood of this country. He has even said that these tax hikes are a “day one” priority. First, he plans to increase taxes on businesses then on people he thinks earn too much money. “And folks, on day one, I will move to eliminate Trump’s tax cuts,” he says. Biden’s tax plan will raise taxes on Americans between $3.5 trillion and $4 trillion. Many of those who will be hit with increased bills are small business owners.

While much of the money will come from corporations and the top 1% of earners, this will absolutely hurt job creators’ ability to do what they do best — provide lower earners with the ability to make money of their own. Joe Biden is dangerous, and four years with him as President is something that should absolutely scare Ameircans.

Alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has been repeatedly attacked by the liberal media after he was forced to kill two rioters in self-defense. Now, he’s done standing by as the Left smears him. In response to an attack by Joe Biden falsely alleging Rittenhouse is a white supremacist, the teenager is hitting back. Kyle Rittenhouse is now taking Joe Biden on in court.

In an effort to portray President Trump and his supporters as racists, Joe Biden unleashed a horrific attack on Rittenhouse, who opened fire when rioters forced him to defend himself. Rittenhouse traveled to Wisconsin after seeing the rioting and looting that was happening. Seeking to defend businesses, he came armed and ready to use his firearm in self-defense. Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree intentional homicide — though, as his attorneys point out, the teenager was just defending himself.

Nevertheless, Joe Biden and the Left can’t resist attacking a teenage boy. Following the debate, Biden accused President Trump of being a white supremacist because he told the Proud Boys to stand back and let law enforcement do their jobs. A video shared by Biden which topped three million views shows footage of alleged white supremacists. Among them is a still image of Rittenhouse. “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night,” the tweet reads.

Lin Wood, Rittenhouse’s attorney, says that the teen will sue Biden for this baseless attack. “”Video evidence is publicly available that shows beyond any doubt that Kyle acted in self-defense,” Wood says. “Kyle went to Kenosha to help render medical aid to others. He was viciously attacked by three criminals. He fought back to save his life.” Wood adds that Biden’s lie not only places Rittenhouse in danger but “prejudices Kyle’s constitutional right to a fair trial and damages his reputation.”

Biden now faces major, credible, malicious, libel allegations leading up to the election. Do we want a President who will lie about others whenever it suits him simply to push his agenda? Joe Biden repeatedly hides from any discussion of the actual issues and instead falls back on the Left’s only play when they can’t win with facts: allegations of “racism.” Rittenhouse’s mother recently received a standing ovation at a GOP women’s event. While liberals may be fooled by Biden’s juvenile antics, the rest of us aren’t.

What is Joe Biden trying to hide? “Sleepy Joe” Biden may mock President Trump’s very reasonable suggestion that he take a drug test prior to the first debate of the 2020 political season. But that mockery seems to be an attempt to deflect from numerous cognitive issues many have noticed as Biden’s trainwreck of a campaign continues.

Biden’s issues have been heavily noted, even on the Left. While Bernie Sanders ultimately toed the party line and endorsed Joe Biden, his former press secretary Briahna Joy Gray is among many who have noticed Joe Biden’s clear “cognitive decline.” In a July 19 tweet, for example, she pointed out that Democrats were so desperate to stop Bernie that they pushed a candidate with “cognitive decline.”

Many liberals and progressives have shared Gray’s concern, citing Biden’s cognitive issues as a primary reason to back President Trump for President despite their leftist leanings.

Why Won’t Joe Biden Agree to a Drug Test?

Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump took a cognitive test and passed with flying colors. And like the cognitive test, “Sleepy Joe” refuses to also take a drug test — something President Trump says he is very willing to do. Citing Biden’s “uneven” debate performance, the President called on Barack Obama’s right-hand man to do the right thing.

“Vice President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words. If the President thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in response to the President’s request for a mutual drug test. “We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200K Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop COVID-19.”

Biden has been accused by many on his own side, as well as President Trump, of taking performance-enhancing drugs to make his way through appearances without passing out or saying something nonsensical. In the past, Biden has accidentally endorsed President Trump for President, said he was running for the Senate (in 2020), randomly bitten his wife’s finger during an appearance, and claimed that you can solve violence against women by “punching at it and punching at it and punching at it.”

The September 29 debate promises to be interesting. It will be moderated by Fox News’ Chris Wallace and will be split into six 15-minute segments — each covering a topic of importance like SCOTUS, the coronavirus, or the riots currently happening in major cities.
