If We Don’t Get Over The First Civil War We Might Have A Second

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • When the news came out that a Civil War reenactment scheduled to take place at the Manassas battlefield in Virginia  was being cancelled due to fears over possible violence from leftwing groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, I saw a tweet from some guy saying something to the effect that “The Civil War was 152 years ago – why can’t black people just get over it?”
  • Now, I’m a conservative and I’m pretty sure I had ancestors who fought for the South in the Civil War, since both sides of my family came into this country in the late 18th/early 19th centuries through North Carolina, but I found that tweet quite offensive, and can only imagine how offensive any descendant of slaves might find it.  But we see that argument expressed quite often by those who, for whatever reason, feel the need to continue reenacting Civil War battles, flying the stars and bars out in front of their house, and defending the need to keep statues of Jefferson Davis on some university campus or on the grounds of some other public building.
  • I often wonder if these folks ever consider the other side of that same argument, which is this:  “The Civil War ended 152 years ago – why can’t confederacy defenders just get over it?”  Seriously, think about it:  isn’t 152 years long enough to honor the leaders of what was in fact an armed rebellion against the United States of America?  Does it really take more than the six or seven generations that have passed through your families since 1865 to get those resentments out of your blood?
  • Seriously, take a step back for just a minute and think:  Does it really matter to your life if that statue of Jefferson Davis or Robert E. Lee keeps standing out in front of your local courthouse?  Have you ever stopped to think about how it must feel to descendants of slaves who surely live in your community to walk by that statue knowing that their tax dollars help pay for its upkeep and public display?
  • And please, don’t give me that crap about the Civil War not being about preservation of slavery.  If you’re one of the people who uses that line, I want to personally challenge you to take a few hours out of your day to read each state’s articles of confederation.  If you do that, you will find that all 11 confederate states listed the preservation of slavery as a reason for their decision, and 9 of the 11 states listed it as the first reason.  Save that argument for someone else.
  • Then there’s the argument about “we have to preserve our history!”, and with that one, I’m in full agreement.  But keeping a statue of Stonewall Jackson out on the courthouse lawn for 120 years doesn’t really teach anyone anything about history, does it?  Not without the provision of context.
  • Our biggest problem in the current hysteria from the political left over these monument is that we now have two full generations of young people who haven’t been given any real context about any of this in our schools and universities.  The teaching of civics and American History was de-emphasized during the ’70s and ’80s, after the radicals of the ’60s came to dominate our education system, in favor of indoctrinating our children with all sorts of leftwing nonsense.
  • Unless they took American history or civics as an elective, the only thing anyone under 40 or so has ever been taught about Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson is what they get from the news media, and the only message they get from the news media is that they were eeeeevil, which of course is not true.  They were just men, products of their time and place, doing what they believed to be their civic duty.  But the public lacks that context – all they have in their minds is that simplistic notion they’ve learned from the media.  And so, when  they walk past these statues they have an emotional reaction, because they have no understanding whatsoever of who those men really were and the things they did with their lives outside of the few years of the War.
  • It seems to me that the biggest problem about this entire controversy is that both sides are reacting out of emotion and ignorance.  How can we expect to be a unified nation if so many of our citizens know next-to-nothing about what this nation even is?
  • In all of this controversy, there is an opportunity here for President Trump to take initiative to prove he is a different kind of leader.  A good approach to helping the nation heal would be for Republicans and Democrats to work together to remove all Civil War-related statues – Union and Confederacy alike – from taxpayer-funded public places in an organized, systematic way, and establish a series of Civil War museums around the country where they could reside.  Perhaps establish a bi-partisan commission to then develop a curriculum to be taught in guided tours through these museums that would actually educate attendees and provide context for the people depicted in the statues.  Seems to me this could become a centerpiece of the President’s Infrastructure proposal.
  • I know that’s a pipe dream, since the Democrats seem to be hell-bent on continuing to divide this country along racial lines, but I keep hoping they might wake up sometime soon and realize this is a huge loser of an issue for them.  Every poll taken on this question proves that to be the case.
  • Regardless, this would be a constructive approach for President Trump and his Education and Interior Departments to take to the matter.  Take the initiative here, Mr. President, and demand the Democrats explain why they refuse to work towards a peaceful solution to such a divisive issue.  Provide the public with some context here, both politically and historically.
  • Because, if we can’t get over the first Civil War, we are on a collision course with a second.

Just another day in lack of context America.

That is all.

Will Another Democrat Mayor Allow A Riot In His City? Watch Boston Today.

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • More than a dozen times this year, in cities with Democrat Mayors, the George Soros-funded  and Democrat Party-supported thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matters have been allowed to turn peaceful protests into outright riots.  Property has been destroyed, political enemies have been attacked, and yes, people have died – most recently in Charlottesville – as a direct result of these actions.
  • These cities have names:  Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Berkeley, California; Chicago, Illinois; Los Angeles, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Ferguson, Missouri; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Charlottesville, Virginia.  It’s happened multiple times in some of these cities.  All of these cities have Democrat mayors.   This is not a coincidence.
  • None of these events are accidents.  None of them are organic outpourings of emotion by upset citizens.  All are carefully planned, organized and allowed by public officials to take place, regardless of the consequences.
  • Here’s the playbook:  identify a date and time in one of these cities when a peaceful demonstration, or even better, a gathering of right-wingers, has been permitted by a city or university campus to take place.  Use social media networks to issue a call to arms for agitators to volunteer to show up and turn the peaceful demonstration into a riot, or the gathering of right-wingers into a street fight.
  • Keep a lid on the plan until a day or two prior to the event, then feed stories to willing fake reporters with the narrative along the lines of this report by NBC yesterday:  “Interest in two major protests opposed to Saturday’s right-wing “free speech” assembly in a Boston park has swelled in the aftermath of the deadly white nationalist rally in Virginia last weekend.”  Yes, “interest” just happens to be “swelling”, but pay no attention to the man behind the curtain – this is just a natural response to Charlottesville.
  • Next, have the mayor of said city issue a plea to the protesters to keep it peaceful, a promise to have plenty of law enforcement officers on-hand, and advice to ordinary citizens to just stay away from the area.  And be sure while you’re giving this advice and assurance, you stoke emotions by identifying your political opponents as hate-mongers, whether they are or not.  You know, like this statement from Boston Democrat Mayor Marty Walsh: “There have been questions about why we granted a permit for the rally tomorrow,” said Walsh. “The courts have made it abundantly clear. They have the right to gather, no matter how repugnant their views are. But they don’t have the right to create unsafe conditions. They have the right to free speech. In return, they have to respect our city.  At the same time, we can’t look away. The children of our city are watching, and I want everyone who goes to the Common tomorrow to understand that. The young people of our city are watching TV, are following this. We have to make it clear what we stand for in the City of Boston.”
  • Next, when the day comes and your city has been invaded by hundreds of Antifa and BLM thugs brought in by buses funded by some Soros-affiliated group, the mayor issues an order to his police to stand down and let this un-permitted army confront the permitted demonstrators.  It is only after the riot has been allowed to begin in earnest that the police are finally ordered to try to break it up.
  • Afterwards, after all the carefully-planned mayhem has taken place, after people – including law enforcement officers – have been injured and/or killed, after CNN has gotten all sorts of violent videotape to air 24 hours a day for the next week, you have the Democrat Mayor hold a press conference to blame everything on the demonstrators who had obtained a lawful permit to hold a peaceful, even if repugnant, demonstration.
  • This is what happened in Charlottesville.  It happened this way in other cities as well.  It always happens in cities with Democrat mayors.  This is not a coincidence, not an accident, not a series of unfortunate organic events.  This is a carefully executed plan, repeated over and over and over again.
  • We will have to wait and see what happens Saturday afternoon in the Boston Commons.  Thus far, everything has proceeded exactly according to this obvious plan.  We can only hope that Mayor Walsh will have a moment of clarity and actual concern for his people, allow his law enforcement officials to exercise proper riot control procedures, and keep the Antifa and BLM thugs separated from the rightwing demonstrators.
  • If Mayor Walsh does this, there won’t be a riot in Boston today, because his police officials know what to do to prevent it, and the Soros thugs will go away disappointed.  Let’s all pray that he decides to not allow his city to become yet another Democrat-governed stage for this madness.

Just another day in It’s All Up To You, Mr. Mayor America.

That is all.

Everyone Chill Out, OK?

Just a little perspective on the current situation, and then I’ll shut up for the day:
 
  • The current effort by the fake media/Democrat Party ministry of disinformation to tar President Trump as a racist and run him out of office is just a repeat of the playbook they used against Ronald Reagan in 1981-84. Same tactics, same false claims, same inflammatory protests and rhetoric. We have, in other words, seen this movie before.
  • We should all remember that the ending to that movie in 1984 was the single greatest landslide re-election of any sitting president in the history of the American Republic. The average American is much more perceptive than Democrats believe they are.
  • We also need to remember this key difference between 1984 and today – The Democrat Party’s status has radically changed:

    • The Democrat Party in 1984 was a majority national party in almost every respect outside of the Oval Office.  It controlled both houses of congress, a majority of state governorships and a majority of state legislative houses.  It was the majority party in the West, the majority party in the Rust Belt, the majority party in the Midwest, and the majority party in the Northeast.  It had real leadership in congress, and a strong bench of younger, upcoming leaders.  What it didn’t have was a strong candidate to challenge Reagan, whose popularity boomed along with the national economy, which had come roaring back in response to his program of tax cuts.
    • By contrast, The Democrat Party today is in complete and utter disarray. It has no leadership that is attractive outside one fringe group or another.  It is now nothing more than a regional party comprised of an often-conflicting collection of single-issue grievance constituencies.  Its only unifying core philosophy is one of hate:  Hate Trump, hatred of white men, hatred of the police, hatred of the military, hatred of fossil fuels and pipelines.  It has no real leadership outside of the evil George Soros and the termed-out Barack Obama and the twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.  It has no bench of young, upcoming stars to replace its current sclerotic leaders.  It is the majority party only on the West Coast and in some of the Northeast.  It controls neither house of congress, only 4 of 9 seats on the Supreme Court, only 15 of 50 governorships, and an even smaller number of state legislatures.  It is an utterly corrupt and dying entity.
    • Even better for the Republicans, the termed-out Barack Obama, whose feckless and corrupt rule from the radical left and deployment of Alinskyite tactics against his political enemies led directly to the fall of the Democrat Party, is promising to move back onto the political stage this fall.  This can only work to the GOP’s advantage.
  • So tonight, when you turn on CNN or MSNBC (for what reasons I can’t even fathom at this point other than self-abuse)  and see a panel made up of 4 squealing liberals, 2 pontificating fake Republican Trump-haters, and a token real Republican who is there for “balance”, realize that fewer than 1 out of 3000 other Americans are joining you in that inexplicable activity.  Most of them are hopelessly lost souls, but they do not a majority make.
  • Meanwhile, the U.S. economy continues to heat up; the FBI and Justice Department appear to be turning back into real, functioning law enforcement entities again; U.S. foreign policy is working again, even at the previously worthless United Nations; the swamp creatures who have infested and corrupted the State Department, the IRS, the Interior Department, the Energy Department, the EPA and the Department of (no) Education are being run off in droves; the rapidly rising production and exports of oil, coal and liquefied natural gas are turning the U.S. into an energy powerhouse on the international stage; and there have been more than 1 million new jobs created in our country during the first half of 2017.
  • As we sit here today, all of these factors and many more mean it is very likely, given good health, that Donald Trump will be a two-term president.  So do what I’m going to do this evening:  stop worrying and be happy.

That is all.

I’m Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old

Here are some things I’m old enough to remember:

  • I’m old enough to remember when, three weeks ago, the Democrats plagiarized PapaJohn’s Pizza with a new slogan promising they were going to focus on “Better Jobs, Better Wages”, instead of dividing America.

  • I’m old enough to remember 7 days ago when Senator From The News Media John McCain lambasted President Trump for his aggressive posture towards the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea, saying it wouldn’t work.
  • I’m old enough to remember all the way back to January, when Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signor declared his city to be the “Capital of the ‘Resistance’ “.
  • I’m old enough to remember when it was the communists in the Soviet Union and radical muslims in Afghanistan who were going about toppling statues and trying to erase history, rather than the Democrats here in the U.S.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the global temperature records kept by NOAA hadn’t been falsified for political purposes.
  • I’m old enough to remember when radicals on the Berkeley campus were peacefully demonstrating in favor of free speech, not violently rioting to restrict it.
  • I’m old enough to remember when senators of both parties rallied around the president of the United States whenever some nutjob dictator threatened to bomb our homeland, and when those who didn’t do so were criticized rather than praised by the news media.
  • Speaking of the news media, I’m old enough to remember when it was only partially fake.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Barack Obama said “We can’t drill our way to lower gasoline prices.”  Oops.
  • I’m old enough to remember when The National Review was a conservative journal, and The Weekly Standard wasn’t edited by Hillary Clinton shills like Stephen Hayes and Bill Kristol.

  • I’m old enough to remember when the panels on Fox News’s “Special Report” were balanced, unlike the utter disgrace they aired Monday evening.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Republican Party actually stood for something.

  • Hell, I’m so old I remember 1995, when the GOP had real leadership in both houses of congress.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Hollywood turned out watchable movies – you know, the kind with plots and acting and stuff like that.
  • I’m old enough to remember when I wasn’t a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.  Ok, that’s a lie – I’ve always been a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Nancy Pelosi wasn’t a doddering, babbling fool.  Ok, that’s a lie, too.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Maxine Waters lived in her own congressional district.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a functioning, respected law enforcement agency, i.e., the pre-James Comey years.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Obamacare didn’t exist and most Americans really did have affordable healthcare insurance.
  • I’m old enough to remember those seven years when every Republican in Washington (except for Sen. Susan Collins, who is really a Democrat) promised they were going to repeal Obamacare.
  • I’m old enough to remember when we all thought John McCain was a genuine American hero.  No really, virtually all of us did.  Silly us.
  • Finally, I’m old enough to remember when both major political parties respected the constitution, the American flag, and the national anthem.  Sadly, the Democrats no longer respect any of those things, and it’s hard to be sure whether many Republicans do anymore.

I’m much too young to feel this damn old.

The Fake News Media Created Charlottesville, and Will Create More in the Future

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • What happened in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday should surprise no one.  This was an inevitable outcome of this country’s lack of anything resembling an independent national news media.  If anything, it’s surprising it took this long for such a tragedy to happen.
  • For two years now, leftist agitators funded by George Soros-supported groups have been violently assaulting supporters of Donald Trump without a single word of objection or condemnation from any leader of the Democratic Party.  Not a word.  Worse, none of these “leaders” have been asked by anyone with any major national news outlet why they stand silently by as supporters of their political party engage in increasingly vile and violent protest actions.  Not a single Democrat politician has been questioned by any “journalist” why they not only refuse to condemn such actions, but tacitly endorse them by proclaiming themselves to be participants in the “resistance”.  Not a single “journalist” has asked any Democrat why they refuse to even condemn the rise of a neo-fascist group that calls itself “Antifa”, and which pays masked thugs to burn buildings, attack law enforcement officers and beat up anyone who disagrees with them.
  • Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe is one of those Democrat “leaders” who has proclaimed himself to be a part of the resistance.  It should surprise no one that, armed with the knowledge that a bunch of ignorant redneck White Supremacist dimwits were coming to one of his state’s cities to stage a rally, McAuliffe looked the other way as the Soros groups bused in hundreds of paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter (also Soros funded) counter-protesters into the city.
  • Guess what?  Violence ensued.  Lots of violence, as the police – no doubt on orders from Democrat politicians – made little effort to keep the violent leftist agitators separated from the ignorant redneck White Supremacists.  People were beaten with fists.  People were beaten with bats.  People were sprayed with pepper spray.  Police were assaulted, mainly by the Soros people (no surprise there).
  • Then, once all the rednecks had finished with their “White Supremacistin’ ” – presumably because their tiki torches had burned out and their wife beater shirts had begun to reek – and dispersed, some idiot from Ohio decided to drive his Dodge Challenger into a group of counter-protesters, killing one and sending 19 more to the hospital.
  • We will hear much talk in the news media in the coming days about the background of this guy, whose names is James Alex Fields, Jr.  We’ll see every fake journalist at CNN and MSNBC and the broadcast networks do everything they can to tie him around the neck of President Trump, and Republicans in general, something they have steadfastly refused to do with the Democrats and their Antifa and Black Lives Matter troops.
  • What we won’t hear much about is the fact that, as abhorrent as they are, the redneck dimwits had a valid permit to stage their rallies.  It’s sad, but it is a reality in our free society that clown shows like these people get to stage peaceful rallies if properly permitted.  That’s what the first amendment guarantees.  When properly managed by local officials and law enforcement, there is no reason for anyone to get hurt.
  • We also won’t hear that the Antifa and Black Lives Matters protesters had no such permit.  We won’t see much, if any analysis of who it is that paid those counter-protesters to show up, who paid for the buses they arrived in.  We won’t see much, if any analysis of the fact that the mayor of Charlottesville is himself a self-described “Democratic Activist” who was educated at…wait for it…Berkeley, whose campus was the scene of an Antifa-fed riot early this year.  We won’t see anyone in the mainstream news media point out the reality that all of the violence that took place on Saturday could have been easily avoided had the Democratic public officials in charge of the situation done their jobs rather than actively encouraging the confrontations.
  • It is because of the things we won’t see the media do in the wake of this tragedy – because we do not have a functioning, independent news media in this country that works to hold favored public officials accountable in any real sense – that we will see more and more Charlottesvilles repeated in other Democrat-run cities and states in the coming years

Just another reason to be thankful that Democrats only control 15 governor’s offices these days.

Elon Musk Is A Very Creative Crony Capitalist

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Elon Musk is a very creative guy.  We all know it, and often admire it.  He’s the guy who’s going to colonize Mars, the guy who’s going to roof your house with solar shingles and pave highways with solar pavers.  He’s also the guy who is now bringing us the Tesla 3 electric motor car, his new, more compact and sporty model for which he claims to have already received 500,000 orders.  It’s all so wonderful, and his giant PR operation issues about 27 press releases a week bragging about his every move.  Well, ok, not quite every move.
  • Here’s what Elon Musk’s thousands of PR agents never brag about:  None of his very creative ideas work without very heavy government subsidies.  The fact is that his various ventures in the United States alone have already brought him more than $5 billion in government subsidies, a legacy of the crony capitalism in which the Obama Administration was so heavily engaged.  That amounts to about half of Musk’s personal net worth, and those subsidies are the only reason his car company has been able to eke out “profits” in just 2 quarters during its entire existence.  Indeed, buyers of Teslas in the U.S. receive a big subsidy check from the federal government – the subsidy for the new Tesla 3 is $7500 – and also received state subsidies from taxpayers in many states.  California’s state subsidy (because of course California has a taxpayer subsidy for this stuff) is $2500, meaning that preening celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio can make themselves feel better by buying a Tesla, and enjoy a gift of a total of $10 grand from middle class America.  Cool, right?
  • Musk is facing a growing backlash over all his very creative rent-seeking endeavors, but the simple fact is he has to have the subsidies to remain in business.  For proof of that assertion, all one need do is observe Tesla’s experience in Hong Kong this year.  Tesla had sold thousands of cars the first three months of this year, when the Hong Kong government had a large subsidy in place, but when that subsidy was eliminated at the end of March, Tesla received a total of ZERO orders for its cars in Hong Kong during April.  No subsidies, no sales, and pretty soon, no company.
  • So, if you are so inclined, go out and get your Tesla soon, while the subsidies are in existence and the company is still in business.  But don’t buy one in Texas – Texas offers EV subsidies through auto dealerships, but no subsidies for the factory-direct Tesla, which does not do dealerships.  Go to California and make the taxpayers there foot part of the bill for your awesome new car.  They’ll enjoy it – they’re used to being screwed by their state’s government.
  • Sen. Manchin thinks he’s the Honey Badger.  Honey Badger don’t give a s–t, either. – Ok, West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has now gone full nitwit.  He’s obviously been given the party’s polling data indicating that Democrats can now cuss their way to re-election, data that has led Senators like Kirstin Gillebrand and Al Franken, along with DNC Chairman Tom Perez to go on cursing sprees all over the country in recent months.  Here’s what Manchin said in an interview with the Charleston Gazette:  “I don’t give a s–t, you understand? I just don’t give a s–t,” he said. “Don’t care if I get elected, don’t care if I get defeated, how about that. If they think because I’m up for election, that I can be wrangled into voting for s–t that I don’t like and can’t explain, they’re all crazy.”  Democrats really do believe this is an effective strategy to attract votes from Millenials.  I suspect, though, that Millenials don’t give a s–t about it.  Just a guess.

Just another day in don’t give a s–t America.

Fake News, Real News, And Winning

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet? – the Dow closed at yet another all-time record high on Tuesday, now approaching the 22,000 level.  It has now risen almost 20% since Election Day.  Second quarter GDP growth – the first full quarter of the Trump presidency – was pegged at 2.6%, equaling the highest growth rate the economy ever saw during Barack Obama’s 8-year regulatory free-for-all.  We should expect to see even higher growth rates as the current administration continues to remove the regulatory shackles from the nation’s industries.
  • Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. –  Sara Carter at Circa News, one of the handful of real working journalists still active in the nation’s capital, reports that former Obama National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes has been added to the House Intelligence Committee’s growing list of suspects in the illegal unmasking investigation.  Rhodes joins the mugshot lineup that already includes Obama-era luminaries like Samantha Power, John Brennan and Susan Rice.  You may remember Rhodes, who is most famous for openly admitting to an interviewer that the Obama Administration and fake news media regularly coordinated narratives and messages.
  • My God, dude, have you no life at all? – After President Trump used the term “Paddy Wagon” in a speech to law enforcement officials last week, the fake editors at the Washington Post thought it would be a great idea to run a 700 word dissertation by some guy named James Mulvaney about why this “slur” is “insulting…to Irish Americans”.  Mr. Mulvaney, like almost every leftist in the United States, has no sense of humor.  Fair warning to parents of college-age children with law-degree aspirations:  Mulvaney is adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, at least if the WaPo can be believed on that point, which as we have found, is an unsafe assumption at best.  The lesson here is, don’t let your kids attend John Jay College.
  •  Wait, wasn’t Bain Capital the Devil to you guys just 5 years ago? – Don’t look now, but Politico reports that Barack Obama has decided that the Democrats’ best hope to run against Donald Trump in 2020 is…wait for it…wait for it…DEVAL PATRICK!  What’s that?  The name sounds sort familiar but you really have no idea who that is?  Yeah, that’s the point.  For those who, like me, had a hard time recalling exactly who this clown is while reading that story, Mr. Patrick is an ex-Governor of Massachusetts, something that, in addition to being an executive at Bain Capital, he has in common with Mitt Romney.  You remember Bain Capital, right?  That’s the firm that, in 2012, was portrayed by the Obama campaign and the fake news media as representing everything that is wrong with America.  Five years later, it’s no big deal.  But whatever, trust me on this:  If the 2020 Democrat field is made up of 80 year-old communist Bernie Sanders, 74 year-old lifetime criminal Hillary Clinton, 70 year-old fake Indian Elizabeth Warren and an obscure ex-Governor of Massachusetts, the Party might as well not even bother.
  • How did this get into the NYTimes? – Don’t look now, but a member of the editorial staff at the NYTimes somehow slipped an op-ed piece past his colleagues titled “When Progressives Embrace Hate”.  Nevermind, of course, that American progressives have embraced hate since the day American progressives became a thing, this is the NYTimes we’re talking about here.  This is actual (pardon the pun) progress!  The editor, Bari Weiss, writes about 800 words about how awful it is that the organizers of the Women’s March last January included the hate-mongering Islamist Linda Sarsour, and how repugnant it is that this hateful woman continues to be embraced by American progressives.  That’s all true, and it is indeed nice of at least one person on the NYTimes editorial board to finally notice Ms. Sarsour’s true nature, but it’s hilarious that Ms. Weiss thinks this is all somehow a surprise.  Had she been paying any attention at all, she would know that the entire progressive philosophy is based on hate.  But, to quote the great John McClain, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Just another day in fake news media America.

Better Jobs, Better Wa…Wait, What Did Trump Just Tweet?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • On Monday, the Democrats rolled out their new Papa Johns-plagiarized slogan:   “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.”  The slogan was so silly, so hokey, so obviously not having to do with anything today’s Democrat Party is all about that even the Democrat operatives at MSNBC mocked it mercilessly (though CNN dutifully played along).  The Party’s strategy, of course, was to yet again attempt to fool the American people that it had a focus on jobs and helping the average American have a better life.  The truth, of course, is that the Party and its agenda were long ago co-opted by Social Justice Warriors and Enviro-Nazis, which is the fundamental reason why the Republican Party holds every lever of power in the nation’s capital today.
  • But Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the lunatics who are in charge of the DNC know they can’t actually change their focus to things that actually make a difference in Americans’ daily lives, so instead they paid some consultant millions of dollars to paraphrase a slogan off a Papa John’s pizza box.  Now, they thought, we can focus on our nifty new slogan, and pretend we care about the middle class!  It’ll be awesome!  High fives were flying at DNC Headquarters.  But then, on Wednesday, the President started tweeting….
  • …and part of his daily tweet storm that day was a two-tweet announcement that the U.S. military would no longer accept trans-gender applicants and force the U.S. middle class taxpayers to foot the bill for their trans-gender surgeries while they served.  In response, the Democrats and their agents who make up 98% of the nation’s news media went stark raving mad.  The Party’s focus was right back in the hands of the SJWs, the efforts to change the subject instantly forgotten.
  • Slogan?  What slogan?
  • Tired of winning yet? – The Taiwanese company FoxConn announced it is investing more than $10 billion in a new manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, a move that will create 13,000 American jobs.  President Trump wisely held a joint announcement in the White House with the company’s CEO.  Immediately after, heads could be heard exploding all over CNN headquarters in Atlanta.
  • Tired of winning yet, Part II? – On Wednesday, the Dow, the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 indices all reached all-time highs.  The fake news media – except for Fox News – were all too busy screaming about presidential tweets to notice.
  • The NYPost reports that Dancing With The Stars is currently in negotiations with…wait for it….wait for it…SEAN SPICER!  That.  Is.  Awesome.  Go for it, big guy.
  • Kid Rock, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Michigan against the execrable Debbie Stabenow, announced on his website that he will be registering people to vote…at his performances!  Those loud noises you heard yesterday were heads exploding at DNC Headquarters.  Yeah, they were exploding over the President’s tweets, but they would have exploded over this, too, had they had the chance.
  • After 9 Republican senators voted against the initial Obamacare repeal and replace bill on Tuesday evening, 7 GOP senators compounded the Party’s mendacity by joining all Democrats in voting down a repeal-only bill on Wednesday.  Five of those seven had voted for the exact same bill in the past when they knew Barack Obama would veto it:  Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Rob Portman, Shelly Capito, and Lamar Alexander.  Dean Heller of Nevada wasn’t around in the Obama years, so he gets a pass on the hypocrisy, and, as I mentioned yesterday, Susan Collins has never in the past voted in favor of Obamacare repeal, consistently siding with her soulmates in the Democrat Party.  Hopefully, all seven will receive strong primary challengers.  They deserve them.

Just another day in Democrat heads exploding and fake Republican mendacity America.

  • Some Seattle-based social justice warrior named Frances S. Lee woke up over the weekend and realized his political ideology is no different than your basic religious cult, complete with sacred texts, religious dogma, church elders and strictures on speech and behavior that must not be violated.  Mr. Lee is asking to be excommunicated from this amazingly destructive, anti-American church.  Good for him.  The trouble is, for every awakened SJW like Mr. Lee, there are a hundred mind-numbed nitwits waiting to take his place.
  • By the way, as you read Mr. Lee’s piece, try substituting the words “Climate Change” every time you read “Social Justice”, and you will see that his piece could have otherwise been written word-for-word about the global Church of Climate Alarm.
  • Speaking of cults, John Sexton had an excellent piece at Hotair.com on Saturday, reminding us that the fake news media also functions in the very same way.  His piece, a remembrance of the 2008 “Journolist” scandal, in which dozens of leftwing activists posing as journalists were revealed to be coordinating daily talking points, narratives, strategies and targets for demonization, all in support of their fake God, Barack Obama, needs to be read by all, because though the “Journolist” daily email chains might have disappeared, all these leftist seditionists are still dominating the fake news media and the cultish behavior still dominates the fake news coverage.
  • All The Fake News That Fits, Part 86,452:  As if on cue, the NYTimes provides a wonderful example of how this religious cult operates, as it ran a story titled “Iran Dominates In Iraq After U.S. Hands The Country Over”.  Obviously the piece masquerades as an expose’ of the 15 year failed U.S. policy vis a vis Iraq following 911.  Amazingly, the writers of this piece managed somehow to roll out its 1,000-plus words without mentioning the name “Barack Obama” – who inherited a fairly stable situation and intentionally destroyed it in keeping with his leftist ideology – one single time.  If you want to know why I consistently point to the NYTimes as one of the fakest of all fake news outlets, this story is a prime example.
  • And A New False God Rises In The West To Fill The Obama Void:  Again, as if on cue, the NYPost reports that the Democrat Party, desperate to find someone who doesn’t require assisted living services to become their great new presidential hope, have now turned to  – guess who? – yet another freshman senator from a heavily blue state.  With Corey Booker having gone down in flames as simply unappealing to the masses, the Coastal Democrats now turn their eyes to a new annointee, Senator Kamala Harris of California.  In the estimation of Party leaders and their fake news media propaganda agents, Sen. Harris has literally got it all:  outspoken, good-looking, young-ish, a minority background, a woman, an excellent public speaker, and a person who can lie on cue without missing a beat.
  • It will piss off the Fake Indian From Massachusets and The Most Corrupt Woman In America to no end, but Senator Harris is obviously the new Chosen One for the Coastal Democrats.  In the coming months, expect to an undending series of newspaper and magazine articles praising Sen. Harris for her smarts, her toughness, her political skills, and yes, even laughingly for her “moderate”, “inclusive” political outlook, as the fake news media begins to condition the public at large to believe she is just the person to “bring the country together”, just as they began doing with Barack Obama starting in 2007.  This is what the Democrats and the fake news media do.

Just another weekend in leftwing religious cult America.

That is all.
