For the first time in three days, the biggest political news of the day didn’t come out of the Republican convention. It came out of a basement in Delaware.
Joe Biden finally raised an objection to the riots, arson, murder and looting tearing apart American cities. To be sure, his wasn’t a strong voice, but at least he finally broke his silence.

It’s very little, and very late, maybe even too late to save his campaign.
Dems made what I believe to be a historic error in failing to say a single word — a single word — about the national urban crisis during their convention last week. They said nothing about the violence and the tent cities of homeless popping up everywhere, yet embraced the Black Lives Matter movement, frequently criticized the police and romanced protesters as a new wave of selfless heroes.
