Tired of all this Winning yet? – The new Morning Consult Poll is out, and guess what? It now has the Republicans leading the Democrats in the generic congressional ballot for the first time in more than a year. The Ds led the Rs by 10 as recently as December 18. Meanwhile, President Trump’s job approval rating shot up in this poll, to 47% approve vs. 47% disapprove. Hey, remember all those breathless predictions in the fake news media of a Democrat tidal wave election coming in the November mid-terms? Yeah, we’re not seeing those anymore.
Guessing this wasn’t part of the approved Democrat/Fake news media talking points. – Bug-eyed CA congressman Adam Schiff, speaking at a media-sponsored breakfast Wednesday morning, confirmed the White House’s position about his 10-page rebuttal memo to the House Intel Committee’s FISA Abuse Memo. Schiff told the audience in attendance that “We need to go through that and identify that which remains classified and would implicate sources and methods or investigative interests.”
Wait, what??? Haven’t we just gone through five days of Schiff whining that the White House had no legitimate reason to send his booby-trap-filled tome back to the Committee for cleaning? Before yesterday morning, Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and all their fake journalist friends had simply ignored the fact that the FBI and DOJ had identified numerous areas in which the Democrat memo would reveal classified information and betray sources and methods. Now suddenly, Mr. Bug Eyes has spilled the beans. That was obviously not a part of the plan, since the Daily Caller was one of only a handful of media outlets to report on Schiff’s obviously unintentional moment of honesty. Somewhere, San Fran Nan is fuming.
Senator Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren, speaking at a gathering of real, actual, legitimate Native Americans, told the gathering that although she has absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any kind that her mother came from any sort of native American heritage, “no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away.” Wait, what “part” of you would that be – the pathological liar part? The cultural appropriation part? The part where you invented the false claim of native American heritage so you could get a job at Harvard? It’s all so confusing. And pathetic. And shameful. And hilarious.
So, let’s see here…yet another troubled young man from a broken home who had a history of torturing animals and was a “loner” and who his classmates and teachers did everything they could to stay away from because he was so threatening to them and who had actually been kicked out of school for violent and threatening behavior and who had been in therapy but quit going a year ago and who we will most likely find out soon was taking some form of anti-depression or anti-psychotic medications shot and killed 17 people at his former high school yesterday. Man, nobody could have possibly seen that coming. Well, except for those surviving students who told reporters that “we all knew this was coming.”
Of course, immediately the fake news media and all the perpetually outraged social justice warriors took to their Twitter feeds and CNN/MSNBC discussion panels to assign full blame for this tragedy on…the inanimate object. Thus ends any hope that our society might, just this once, take a step back and look at the real causes that led to this tragedy and maybe even try to do something effective to prevent future such atrocities. You know, things like taking potentially violent mental illness more seriously, like employing some intelligent profiling and threat assessment procedures, like forcing every public school to employ armed security personnel so that potential bad actors will know they are going to be met by a good guy with a gun.
Instead, we will today be treated to the exact same fruitless politicized finger-pointing we have seen after every tragic school mass shooting since Columbine, ending quickly all hope that anything effective might take place. So, some months down the road, another mass school shooting will take place, and the perpetrator will inevitably have the exact same profile described above, after which the same exact fruitless finger-pointing will ensue, and shocked students who thankfully weren’t harmed will once again say “we all knew this was coming.”
Everyone, that is, except the people who could have done something to prevent it.
Just another day in our country is certifiably insane America.
