Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Progressives want to kill you, Part I – The gals on The View never cease to humiliate themselves by putting their true hateful nature on display. Generally, it’s the execrable Joy Behar leading the pack of shrews, but on Friday it was Whoopi Goldberg doing the honors, expressing her wish that the President of the United States be water-boarded. You can watch the clip here.
Progressives want to kill you, Part II – Not to be outdone, Nicolle Wallace over at MSNBC expressed her desire to choke White House spokesperson and mother of three small children Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Progressives want to kill you, Part III – Maxine Waters had another meltdown on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday. You can watch it for yourself here. No need for further comment.
Progressives: If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever want to make them up.
You sure about this? Because it’s not going to end well for you. – In the wake of an incident in April in which two black men were ridiculously arrested while waiting for a third person to show up before they ordered some coffee, Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schulz announced on Friday that the restrooms in all Starbucks stores will now be open to everyone, regardless of whether a person orders anything or not. Hilariously, Schulz then later told reporters that he doesn’t want his stores to become “public restrooms.”
Well, sorry, bubba, but that’s exactly what’s going to happen if you truly do carry out your stated policy. This will be especially true in the interiors of large cities run by Democrats.
True story: I was in Austin a few weeks ago, and needed to kill a little time, so I popped into one of the city’s downtown Starbucks. After getting my coffee, I looked around the otherwise crowded store and noted several empty tables in one corner, so I went and grabbed one. As I was booting up my laptop, I became aware of a heated conversation involving two distinctly different male voices coming from the table over my left shoulder.
After this had gone on for a few minutes, with the conversation becoming increasingly profane and nasty, I glanced over my shoulder and realized that this “conversation” was in fact being carried on by a single man, an obvious vagrant who had taken shelter inside the Starbucks. I then understood why that area of the otherwise very busy store had been vacated.
If Mr. Schulz’s policy is actually implemented, this scene and much worse is about to be replicated in pretty much every inner-city Starbucks store in the country. The restrooms will not only become “public,” they will also become run-down, filthy and bereft of paying customers. This is not a guess, this is not a likelihood, this is an inevitable outcome.
The best news about this new Starbucks policy is that it will create a very fertile playing field for new competitors to move into the downtown areas of our nation’s large cities. Because people are still going to want their coffee – they’ll just want to be able to enjoy it without feeling threatened or accosted.
Has anyone seen Harvey Weinstein lately? – Mysterious massive “globster” creature washes up on Philippines beach.
Well, uh, McCain’s not a “conservative,” so… – Writing for Reason, Matt Welch published a piece yesterday that asks this burning question: “Will McCain-style Conservatism Live On?”
Of course, the answer is that so long as consummate RINOs like Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Bob Corker infest the United States Senate, then the McCain-style whatever-it-is will indeed live on. Calling this combination of open borders, gigantic spending, war-mongering and social liberalsm in any way “conservatism” is a bad joke, and Mr. Welch should know better.
The good news here, though, is that the RINOs are leaving the U.S. Congress in droves these days, with Flake and Corker being two among the many Senate and House members who have chosen not to seek re-election this year. Their replacements are going to be real conservatives who understand that the Democrat Party declared war on America’s culture and institutions way back in 1992, and the Republican Party utterly failed to engage them in it until Donald Trump became President last January 20.
Hopefully, more RINOs will follow the wonderful examples set by Flake and Corker and take the easy way out over the next couple of election cycles. It’s best for everyone.
Just another day in Progressives want to kill you America.
That is all.
