Jimmy Kimmel: The Left’s Perfect Spokesman

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect spokesman for the American Left.  He personifies everything the Left has become over the last 25 years, since the advent of Clintonian/Alinsky dominance of the Democrat Party:  Entitled, snarky, mean, haughty, and above all else, studiously ignorant.
  • The tactics he deploys from his late night pulpit are the tactics Clintonian Democrats have deployed from their political pulpits for a quarter of a century.  You begin with a set of talking points prepared by someone else, but which you memorize and recite as if they were gospel handed down from God himself.  In Kimmel’s case, the talking points were handed down by Chuck Schumer, more a minion of Satan than a god, but hey, the principle is the same.
  • Kimmel’s talking points are pretty simple:  Obama, good.  Obamacare, good.  Republicans, bad.  Anything Republicans want to to with Obamacare, bad.  That’s the sum total of what Kimmel “knows” about the debate over what to do about the collapsing Obamacare system, which has quintupled medical premiums in many areas and thrown millions of Americans off of healthcare insurance entirely.  Kimmel sees none of this, because none of this is in the talking points he’s been fed by Schumer.  Kimmel is abjectly ignorant, and he clings to his ignorance like Linus clings to his security blanket.
  • Every set of leftist talking points comes with the  standard set of leftist tactics, and those tactics always – ALWAYS – follow the same exact progression:  First you start with a sob story, and to his credit, Kimmel and his beautiful little son have a great, very real sob story to relate.  Second comes the name calling, and boy is Kimmel, a veteran comic, good at the name calling.  Next comes the threats, and Kimmel is as good with the threats as he is at the name calling.  Finally, when the left still hasn’t gotten everything it wants, comes the violence, as we have seen the past few years with Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the armed and violent wing of the Democrat Party.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten around to the violence part yet, but we can be sure he will next time he runs into Brian Kilmeade.
  • As mentioned above, the sob story is real:  Kimmel does have a precious little boy who has a heart condition which has already required one surgery and will, according to Kimmel, require two more.  This is awful, and everyone should be praying for the child’s full recovery.  Luckily for the child, he is the son of a fabulously wealthy member of the top 1% of the 1%, so he will receive the finest healthcare available in America, which is also the finest available in the world.  Kimmel wants his viewers to believe that the only reason his son will receive such fine healthcare is thanks to the demi-god Obama and Obamacare, which of course is an outright lie.  But lying is what leftwingers like Kimmel do.
  • Anyone who argues with Kimmel on this subject and points out his lies immediately becomes the target of nationally-televised name-calling.  If you disagree with Kimmel, suddenly you are evil, a sexist, a racist, and any other -ist he can attach to what his script-writers consider these days to be a “joke”.   One Louisiana Congressman even became an “inbred” in Kimmel’s Thursday rampage, er, ‘monologue’.  It’s all very predictable, yet very sad coming as it does from a comic who at one time was actually a very funny guy who understood what his show was supposed to be about.
  • Then come the threats.  For leftist politicians, the threats come in the form of taxes, penalties or imprisonment on whatever behaviors they don’t approve of but can’t solve through name-calling.  For Jimmy Kimmel, the threats come in the old-fashioned form of threatening to beat someone up when they call out his rank hypocrisy and lying on their own television program.  Thus, his threat to physically assault Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade next time he runs into him.
  • The final step for any good leftist is, of course, outright violence whenever they can’t get their way through the peaceful, constitutional process.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten there yet – perhaps only because he hasn’t run into Kilmeade – but can anyone doubt that, should the Republicans cobble together 50 votes in the senate to pass the Graham/Cassidy bill, he will use his late night pulpit to urge his viewers to take that route?  Given his down-the-line mindlessly leftist behavior to this point, it seems almost inevitable.
  • Unlike the detestable Stephen Colbert, who actually understands a lot about politics and just chooses consciously to act the idiot in order to attract an audience, Kimmel is not someone to be condemned, but pitied.  Through a highly emotional life experience, he has allowed himself to fall out of the only role he really knows anything about, and be co-opted by evil leftwingers like Chuck Schumer to act as their stooge.  It’s like the modern-day Wizard of Oz – no need to worry about the image you see projected on your screen, it’s the man behind the curtain who is the real villain.

Just another day in evil leftists America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party’s Real Problems For 2018 Are Its Own Ugly, Sordid Faces

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you want proof that Republicans and Democrats live in two completely different sets of reality, all you need to do is go read the piece linked here summarizing a new Gallup survey regarding Americans’ trust in the fake news media.  According to Gallup – whose results admittedly must always be called into question since it refuses to publicly release the sampling methods behind its polling – fully 72% of Democrats have “a great deal/fair amount of trust and confidence” in the accuracy of the country’s fake news media, while just 14% of Republicans and 37% of Independents admit to holding the same view.
  • Let that set in for a moment.  As an example, when President Trump visited Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, he was filmed by all media present interacting with literally hundreds of ordinary people, hugging them, talking to them, coloring pages with their children, helping them load their trucks with supplies, working behind the lunch counter at the shelter, etc.  It was an extraordinary example of presidential leadership and empathy with the common man.  Yet that evening, when CNN and MSNBC both falsely reported that the President had met no one, interacted with no one, and ignored the suffering of those people, Gallup tells us that 72% of the nation’s Democrats believed those reports, despite the video evidence before their own lyin’ eyes.
  • That’s not just a disconnect, that is conscious, intentional exercise in mass self-delusion.  Given that self-described “Democrats” make up about 35% of adults, Gallup’s results indicate that roughly one out of every four adults you come across lives in a complete and total fake media-created fantasy world.  Truly frightening.
  • This brings me to a long piece published in Time on Wednesday, which attempts to analyze how the Democrat Party’s ‘leaders’, such as they are, are trying desperately to get the Party’s act together in preparation for the 2018 mid-term elections and the 2020 presidential contest.  It’s a decent, if superficial, analysis, focused mainly on the Party’s math problem in terms of how few levers of power it actually controls, its pathetic fundraising efforts, and the conflicts among the Party’s current ‘leaders’ – again, such as they are – over whether to continue trying to attract the independent voters who will make or break their efforts to win races, or just chuck it all and take the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren turn to the hard left.
  • In other words, the piece is all the standard ‘insider’ stuff written by a standard DC ‘insider’ fake reporter.  It’s all the sort of stuff that actually mattered in the days before the 2016 campaign and President Donald Trump, but now really just doesn’t get to the heart of the matter and which betrays a complete lack of real understanding of what is going on in the 95% of the country that lies outside of the nation’s major media centers.
  • Here’s the reality for the Democrat Party:  The Party has to completely change the faces that represent it in order to have any chance at all to regain real levers of power through the electoral process.  And that is a process of change that will take years, not weeks or months, to achieve.
  • The faces of the Democrat Party today are a) Corruption (Hillary Clinton), b) Commies (Bernie Sanders), c) fraud (Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren), d) open borders radicalism (DNC leaders), e) dishonesty and incompetence (Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) and f) thuggery (Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Soros-supported civil unrest groups).  If they’re smart (always an open question, I admit), Republican candidates in 2018 and 2020 won’t be spending their time and money running against their nominal Democrat opponents, they will be spending most of their time and money running against all these ugly, grossly unpopular faces of the Democrat Party as a whole.
  • Democrat candidates for office can talk all they want to about all the “free stuff” they plan to hand out to anyone who votes for them, but when the face of your Party is San Fran Nan, or black-masked thugs who spend their time violently assaulting political opponents and tossing bags filled with urine at policemen, those promises of “free stuff” are going to largely fall on deaf ears.  Time talks about Democrat efforts to turn 24 currently-GOP congressional seats to their advantage in order to regain a majority in the House of Representatives.  Time doesn’t really talk about how inevitably leftwing Democrat candidates are going to convince moderate and conservative voters in these “flyover country” districts to vote for them when the GOP incumbents are running ad after ad featuring the Commie, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, or video of town squares being burned by the armed “Resistance” wing of the Democrat Party.
  • As we’ve seen in this year’s special elections, the GOP was able to retain all five congressional seats in play, even when its candidates were weak or damaged, mainly by simply running ads featuring the stumbling, bumbling, doddering Nancy Pelosi.  They haven’t even gotten around to running ads airing all the glowing, supportive statements about Antifa and Black Lives Matter coming from the mouths of Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, Clinton, Sanders and Warren, complete with video of Berkeley or St. Louis burning in the background.
  • This is the Democrats’ real problem for 2018 and 2020, and the foreseeable future beyond.  We can count on all the “experts” in DC and New York to completely miss it, but it’s real, and there is no apparent solution to it.  Regardless of how poorly the Republicans perform in their congressional efforts, their saving grace is likely to be the fact that they get to run for re-election against the ugly, sordid faces of the Democrat Party.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

When Will Soros-Funded Activists Invade Houston? Soon.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Here is what is fixing to start happening in Houston, probably within the next few days:  You’re going to see a lot of Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other Soros-funded activists come in from other parts of the country and begin to infiltrate the community, particularly in minority-heavy neighborhoods.  Their purpose will be to make it appear that the federal and state response to the Hurricane Harvey disaster is racist and ineffective.  We can imagine that these activist groups and their benefactors in the national Democrat Party have had enough of seeing uplifting video from Texas of grateful people praising local, state and federal officials, and thanking everyone who has been helping them.
  • So, in the coming days, you are going to start seeing video on CNN and the networks of mainly younger people loudly complaining that the people in other (presumably white) neighborhoods are getting their help, but nobody’s doing anything for them.  You will start seeing films of such people loudly interrupting public officials who are trying to hold meetings in minority communities around Houston, shouting them down, even threatening them with violence.  You will probably begin seeing groups of mainly younger people staging protests in front of Houston City Hall, with signs accusing President Trump, Governor Abbott and FEMA officials of being racists and trying to commit genocide in the Bayou City.
  • All of these people will claim to be residents of Houston, and no one at CNN, ABC, CBS or NBC will question that, or take film of the caravan of white buses that will likely transport them into the city, if that hasn’t already happened.  Because you can bet your bottom dollar that the folks at CNN and the networks are sick to death of all the public spiritedness we have seen from Houstonians over the last 10 days.  This not good for ratings, or for clickbait to their various websites.
  • Sound cynical?  Sure.  But look, this is the playbook that we have seen over and over and over again over the last dozen years.  These agitators and the fake news media cannot allow what we have seen thus far from Houston and surrounding areas impacted by Harvey to stand.  People of all colors and creeds reaching out, putting themselves in danger to help one another?  That is not the America we see portrayed on CNN 24 hours every day.  If that is the real America, then there is no other conclusion to reach than that CNN is indeed “fake news.”
  • A Republican Governor in a Red State that voted for Donald Trump last November becoming a national star with his even-handed guidance of his state’s recovery efforts?  Does not fit the media/Democrat narrative of incompetent Republican governance.  President Trump and his FEMA Director leading an incredibly well-organized and efficient federal response, and helping the people of Texas in every way possible? Does not fit the narrative that Trump is a racist/lunatic/monster.
  • So the facts and images on the ground have to change in order to fit the media/Democrat narrative, and these George Soros-funded professional agitators are just the people to change them, working in conjunction with the fake news media.  We must remember that these are the same people who have infiltrated Republican congressional townhall meetings all over the country throughout 2016 and 2017, shouting down the elected officials and not allowing them to get their message out.  Why would anyone think they would hesitate to do the same in public gatherings all over Houston in the days and weeks to come?
  • This is standard operating procedure for those on the radical left and in the fake news media.  Frankly, the wonder is we haven’t already seen it happening.

Just another day in Why Isn’t The Justice Department Investigating George Soros? America.

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.

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.

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.

That is all.
