Friday News Roundup: Durham Targets Brennan, Portland Rioters Expand Their Operations

This happened on Thursday:

Now, ok, I get it: Many of you are going to respond with “well, it’s about time! What in the hell has Durham been doing????” Yeah, ok, get it out of your system. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

There, you done? Feel better now?

Ok. Look, in this kind of case, which involves literally dozens of potential targets for prosecution and dozens more potential witnesses who must be vetted, federal prosecutors like Mr. Durham will always – ALWAYS – wait to interview the big fish last.

The reason why is simple: They want to give the smaller fish – like, say, Peter Strzok or Bruce Ohr or Kevin Clinesmith – every opportunity to make a deal and turn state’s witness before they talk to the really big targets like Durham and Comey. This is the natural progression of any such investigation.

So, for better or worse, this is actually great news, a sign that Durham is finally getting to the end of his investigation. Attorney General William Barr has twice promised a “report” from Durham by the “end of summer,” which is September 22. Barr has also indicated that Durham has had at least one grand jury convened, and it is the job of a grand jury to true bill indictments.

Hopefully it isn’t all a Jeff Sessions-like smoke screen, but we will find out either way soon enough.

Stay tuned.

Hey, look: A random act of actual journalism at NPR. – Watch despicable Nancy Pelosi’s reaction as her trusted toady Judy Woodruff goes off-script and actually asks her a semi-tough question:

For a moment there, Woodruff must have remembered that she used to be a journalist. You can be sure she will not make that mistake again when talking to Pelosi.

And now a word from the mindless blithering hacks at Morning Joe. – Watch this clip and marvel as the liberals at Morning Joe twist themselves into racist pretzels in their efforts to serve as apologist for the Democrat Party’s addled nominee, Joe Biden:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. What you are watching here in real time is the Democrat Party removing its own mask and returning to its Jim Crow past. All for the sake of getting the Bad Orange Man out of the White House. Amazing.

Gosh, Ted, who tipped you off? – Portland’s communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler suddenly woke up on Thursday and realized that the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters who he has been allowing to run wild in his city are creating b-roll for President Donald Trump to use in his re-election campaign ads. Hey, I wonder what tipped him off?

From a piece at KGW8 TV in Portland:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell spoke about the ongoing violence in Portland during a news conference Thursday.

On Wednesday night, Portland police declared a riot, arrested 8 people and used tear gas after a crowd of a couple hundred people gathered outside the East Precinct. Some people in the crowd tried to set the building on fire while officers and others were inside, the mayor said. Others tried to smash the glass doors of the precinct building and threw large, heavy rocks and other items at officers.

Wheeler said what happened Wednesday night “was intended to cause serious injury or death, and it very well could have.”

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating. You are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said.

[End]

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyy. But it gets better.

From a piece at Willamette Week:

“Don’t think for a moment that, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” Wheeler said. “Because you absolutely are. You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

[End]

Ok, so, what did the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters do in response to their partner’s admonitions? Why, they expanded their operations into a residential district, naturally.

For coverage of that, we must turn to real, actual journalist Andy Ngo, since the hacks in the corrupt corporate news media refuse to do their jobs:

But never fear: The Democrat Antifa/BLM rioters did not abandon their downtown mission:

So, the situation in Portland – which your corrupt news media continues to describe as “mostly peaceful” – is now about to spiral out of control unless the rioters’ Democrat sponsors pull their funding. Maybe this was why President Trump was once again speculating about ramping up federal involvement in that city again yesterday.

That is all.

Deborah Birx Surrenders to her Character Assassin

Birx predictably caves to Pelosi. – In one of the most disgusting bits of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Deborah Birx played her role to the hilt on Sunday after despicable Nancy Pelosi had made rude and condescending comments about her performance over the past few months. Pelosi, of course, laughably contends Birx has been too loyal to the President and has failed to follow Anthony Fauci in making blatantly false and conflicting statements designed to whip up public hysteria.

So, what does Birx do to defend herself from the Speaker’s unfounded attacks? Why, she lavished praise on one of the most obviously corrupt politicians in American history and went all Fauci about the coronavirus, of course.

From a piece at ABC:

“I think the president is spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his appointee,” Pelosi said. “So I don’t have confidence there, no.”

Pelosi doubled down on her criticism of Birx again on Monday, taking her to task for not challenging Trump about the outbreak and the administration’s lack of a national coronavirus plan.

“I don’t have confidence and anyone who stands there while the president says, ‘Swallow Lysol and it’s going to cure your virus.’ … I don’t have confidence in somebody when the president says it’s a hoax, it’s magic,” Pelosi said on CNN. “She has enabled [him].”

“This administration has not had a strategic plan for the six months we’ve known about the virus,” the California Democrat continued. “There has to be some responsibility, so if the president is saying these things, who is advising him that this is OK and enabling that to happen?”

Birx responded to the “no confidence” comment on CNN on Sunday by complimenting Pelosi before defending her own credibility.

“I have tremendous respect for the speaker. And I have tremendous respect for her long dedication to the American people,” Birx said.

Raising a recent article from the New York Times, which portrayed Birx as someone who at times tailored her analysis of the pandemic to better suit the politics of the administration, Birx insisted her response is driven by data, not politics.

“I have never been called pollyannish, or nonscientific, or non-data driven,” she told CNN Sunday. “And I will stake my 40-year career on those fundamental principles of utilizing data to really implement better programs to save more lives.”

Birx also warned that the pandemic has entered “a new phase,” contradicting the president’s persistently optimistic predictions as he pushes schools to reopen for full in-person instruction and resists any reversals on reopenings.

“I want to be very clear: What we are seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread. It’s into the rural as equal urban areas,” Birx told CNN. “To everybody who lives in a rural area, you are not immune or protected from this virus.”

When asked about a prediction there could be 300,000 deaths by the end of the year, Birx said, “Anything is possible.” She went on to emphasize social distancing and suggest that some Americans in multi-generational families should start wearing masks inside their homes and assume they already have the virus.

[End]

Let’s start by noting that ABC refuses to point out that Pelosi is outright lying when she accuses the President of telling people to “swallow Lysol,” something that never happened. Let’s also note that the President has never, not one time, referred to the virus itself as a “hoax” as Pelosi falsely contends in this piece without correction by ABC. He has referred to the media/Democrat efforts to whip up hysteria about it a “hoax,” and that is a perfectly accurate description of what the media and Democrats have done.

Now to Birx.

Her response is, in a word, pathetic. Her slavish praise of an utterly corrupt tyrant is undeserved and frankly disgusting. It is a sign of weakness and a gesture of surrender. Her comments about the virus entering a “new phase” simply parrot pronouncements Fauci has made repeatedly, offering fear without giving any specifics, a Fauci core competency. Her advocacy that families start wearing masks in the home – after telling the American public on national TV just 3 months ago that masks were completely ineffective at preventing the spread of the virus – amount to 17th century-style blood-letting quackery.

Prior to her Sunday interview, the White House properly defended Birx from Pelosi’s character assassination:

Indeed, the Speaker’s attacks on Birx’s character were so beyond the pale that I almost wrote a post on Sunday defending her myself, but I decided to hold off until I saw Birx’s response. I’m glad now I hit that pause button.

Following Birx’s unilateral surrender to the Speaker, the President had a very predictable response:

See, President Trump doesn’t like surrender monkeys and they don’t like him, which explains the whole “never Trump” movement led by gutless wonders like Stephen Hayes, Max Boot and Bill Kristol.

The worst mistake President Trump has made during this entire pandemic was to listen to Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx over the advice of other advisors. Following their advice is why our nation is in the situation it is in today.

The best response the President could have for the good of the nation today would be to say “Fine, Nancy, I don’t have any confidence in Dr. Birx either, and she’s fired. Come to think of it, Fauci’s fired, too” and start taking advice from real doctors who treat real patients, and from real parents who have real kids who have already lost a year of learning due to our national insanity over this virus.

Then we could all sit back and watch every leftist head on the face of the earth explode simultaneously. It would be glorious.

That is all.

John Lewis got a Political Rally; Herman Cain Will get a Funeral

The Swamp holds a political rally, er, ‘funeral’ for John Lewis. – Now, you can’t go to church with more than 10 of your fellow Americans, but those who infest the DC Swamp can fill a church, ignore social distancing, and hold a political rally for a dead corrupt congressman who in his youth was a genuine champion of civil rights.

Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was there, preaching about the glories of mail-in ballots and the evils of having to have an ID when you go vote. San Fran Nan was there, half in the tank as always. Slick Willie was there, his visage increasingly that of a wraith from a horror film, which is the only way one would expect a long-time running buddy of Jeffrey Epstein to age. Hell, they even rolled out George W. Bush, who likely knew Mr. Lewis about as well as he knew me.

Because this funeral wasn’t a funeral at all: Like the “funerals” for John McCain and Aretha Franklin and George Floyd before it, this was just another chance to brainwash the public and take shots at the Bad Orange Man who isn’t part of their club. That’s all it was: a gaudy and disgusting spectacle that has become sadly typical of the Swamp in general and Democrats in particular.

See, they can all do this thing that you can’t because they’re your betters. Just like Dr. Fauci can go to a baseball game and yuck it up in the stands while he ignores his own dictates that have become such an oppressive part of your lives. They’re the elite; the segment of our society that gets to ignore all of the stuff they tell you you must do or be tossed in jail.

If you don’t believe me, just watch and learn. Herman Cain, a hero for conservatives everywhere and a truly great American, died yesterday. Let’s watch and see if he gets a nationally-televised funeral in a church filled with Swamplings. Let’s watch and see if he gets a send-off in a church filled with people, period.

What Cain has received already instead is derision from the corrupt news media. Pretty much every outlet knee-jerked to the narrative that “Cain, who refused to wear a mask, died after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 just 9 days after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa.” To the Associated Press, the New York Times, Politico, CNN, MSNBC and all of the TV networks, that is apparently the story of Herman Cain’s life in its entirety.

For those unaware, Herman Cain was born in 1945 in Atlanta, the son of a father who worked variously as a barber, a chauffeur and a janitor and a mother who worked as a maid. Hard working, great Americans. Cain himself followed his parents’ example to become a hard-working, great American in his own right.

After putting himself through college and receiving a degree in mathematics from Morehouse College, Cain served his country as a civilian systems analyst for the Department of the Navy. He then moved into the business world, where he rose to national prominence, ultimately becoming the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and the Chairman of the National Restaurant Association.

He ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, a nomination that ultimately went to the Swampling RINO Mitt Romney, with disastrous results. Cain was running a strong race until it was revealed he had had an extra-marital affair, something that would have been a badge of honor for any Democrat, but which gave the corrupt media an excuse to hound him out of the race.

There will be no nationally-televised funeral for Mr. Cain. His body will not lie in state at the nation’s capitol. He won’t have 4 or 5 separate memorial services over a span of 10 days, as did McCain and Floyd and Lewis. Al Sharpton won’t be invited to deliver an hour-long, hate-filled diatribe. The Clintons will not travel to his funeral from Chappaqua, nor the Bushes from their ranch in Texas. Obama His Own Self will not deliver a eulogy filled with messages about mail-in voting or voter ID.

Herman Cain won’t receive send-offs from those former presidents, but he did get this tribute from the current one:

Rest in Peace, Herman Cain. Rest in the knowledge that, because you are neither a Swampling nor, like George Floyd, a convenient false idol being used by Democrats to justify mass riots, your funeral will be an actual, dignified service, not a disgusting political rally officiated by the fading wraiths of the elite.

That is all.

Gerrold Nadler Presided Over a Chilling, Dark Train Wreck of a Hearing With William Barr

“Disgrace” is not the only word to use to describe the behavior of Chairman Gerrold Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee yesterday during their hearing with Attorney General William Barr, but it’s the most accurate. Other appropriate words to use to describe it would be despicable, depraved, demented, deluded, and, as Mark Levin hilariously said it, the most miserable collection of “assholes” ever to exist in the U.S. congress.

Any Republican who, after watching that proceeding, continues to refer to Democrat members of congress as “colleagues” or, as Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and all the other Senate RINOs love to say, “our friends on the other side of the aisle” needs to be defeated in their next re-election attempt. These are not your friends; they are not your colleagues, a word that demands some semblance of collegiality be present in order to be true. They are your enemies, and that is how they regard you.

Simply put, this hearing was delayed by the fact that Nadler supposedly was involved in a “car wreck” on his way to work in the morning (doubtful this is actually true), and he then presided over a massive train wreck for the rest of the day.

The U.S. system of government – the constitution, the separation of powers among three branches of the federal government, and the power sharing between the national government and the various states – is inextricably dependent upon two fundamental factors: 1) that the voters will by and large elect people of good will who love this country to become their representatives in the government; and 2) a spirit of collegiality and compromise between the major parties and factions that allow the government to get things done.

If it was not already obvious to you, then yesterday’s hearing should have shattered any doubt that Democrats have completely abandoned both of those fundamental foundations of the American Republic. After watching that spectacle of Democrat after Democrat after Democrat refusing to allow the witness to answer a question without childishly shouting “reclaiming my time” or rudely interrupting him when his answers made them look even more foolish, or even allowing the witness to take a 5 minute bathroom break after several hours of uninterrupted clown show, if you still believe that those Democrats are people of good will who love this country and have any interest in compromising their totalitarian aspirations in any way, shape or form, then you are a foolish person indeed.

John McCain, one of the most despicable RINO surrender monkeys to ever serve in the United States Congress, was fond of praising the level of “comity” that he maintained with his Democrat friends in the Senate. That was in fact McCain’s favorite word to toss out there whenever he was sucking up to Chris Matthews on MSNBC or Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

The definition of “comity” is “courtesy and considerate behavior towards others.” If McCain were alive today (has his funeral ended yet?) I would love to ask him at what point in yesterday’s hearing did he observe “comity” emitting from his “friends on the other side of the aisle?”

Yesterday was a complete abandonment by the Democrats of any further pretense of engaging in the normal functioning of the American government. It was a clear and unambiguous signal that they believe they are going to succeed in stealing the November elections and regain power, and when they do, they are going to punish anyone who has opposed them. At long last, Nancy Pelosi, one of the most evil women to ever occupy this planet, sees her end goals in sight and her minions are jumping the gun on taking her retribution.

If you are a thinking person who was shocked and disgusted by yesterday’s display, consider this: That was just one day. Under a Joe Biden presidency armed with majorities in both houses of congress and the filibuster rule having been repealed by the Democrat senate, this is what every day will look like in America. You will be under constant assault for 1,461 days. Think you will survive that? Think the country can?

These people hate you and would rather you were dead. If that is not clear to you after yesterday, then you cannot be convinced until it is too late to do anything about it.

America simply cannot be governed by these lunatics for four years and survive intact.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: The Kids Need to go to School and Racist Democrats Hate Science

Ok, so, 27% of Americans are depraved and demented losers. Thanks for letting us know. – Politico tweeted this out yesterday:

For those who are unaware, 27% is also about the number of Americans who are still willing to admit they are Democrats. Coincidence?

Seriously, how could anyone believe that cancel culture has been a positive things for our country? It simply defies rational explanation.

This is a very inconvenient truth. – Nancy Pelosi wants the statues of 11 Confederate figures removed from Capitol Building in Washington, DC. As reported by JustTheNews.com, you will never see or hear the doddering, intoxicated Speaker talking about their political party affiliations:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is calling for the removal of 11 statues of Confederate leaders from the Capitol building, nine of which were members of the Democratic Party.

The other two Confederates, Edmund Kirby Smith and Robert E. Lee, did not have a documented political affiliation, according to historical accounts. Lee reportedly joined Democrats in opposition to Republicans who “demanded punitive measures against the South” during reconstruction.

“The American people know, these names have to go. These names are white supremacists that said terrible things about our country,” Pelosi said during a press conference on Thursday.

McCarthy, a California Republican, said the statues that concern Pelosi are a problem within her own party.

“They were voted upon in the legislature and brought here under Democrat majorities from Mississippi to the other states that she speaks about,” he said.

[End]

Oh.

The truth about the Democrat Party is that it has been a racist party since the day it was founded, and it has never been more transparently racist than it is today. This is just an immutable and enduring fact of history.

Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw put it this way:

Perfect.

Everyone must wear a mask! Well, uh, except for the people who really matter, that is… – Also in JustTheNews.com today is a report about the rank, utter hypocrisy of Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, who issued an order that everyone in her city must – MUST, she says – wear a mask anytime they are not in their residence.

Well, ok, not quite everyone.

From the report:

The mayor’s order makes exceptions from the strict new rules for many city and federal government workers, stipulating: “The enforcement provisions of this Order shall not be applied to persons in the judicial or legislative branches of the District government while those persons are on duty; and shall not apply to any employees of the federal government while they are on duty.”

[End]

Oh. So, is this exemption based on “science”? What science is there that shows that government workers are less likely to spread the China Virus than other folks? If there no such science (there isn’t) then on what basis does Mayor Bowser make this specific exemption?

Could it possibly be that about 95% of those government workers are, like Bowser, Democrats? Oh, perish the thought!

Holy crap.

Joe Biden, meet truth. Truth, meet Joe Biden. – Yesterday, the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee accused federal law enforcement officers of “brutally attacking peaceful protesters.”

Here are some clip of those “peaceful protesters,” courtesy of real journalist Andy Ngo.:

What is taking place in Portland right now – has been taking place for 55 straight days – is an armed insurrection on U.S. soil. That’s what it is, and that insurrection has the full endorsement and support of Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and the entire Democrat Party.

That’s the truth, and it is long past time that this insurrection be put down forcibly.

Want to know why our kids need to go back to school this fall? Listen to a doctor. – Stanford University Medical Center, Dr. Scott Atlas appeared on Fox News and told the interviewer that there are “zero excuses” to keep children from returning to schools in the fall.

From a report at The Federalist:

“There is virtually zero risk for children getting something serious or dying from this disease. Anyone who thinks schools should be closed is not talking about the children. It has nothing to do with the children’s risk,” he said. “There’s no rational reason or science to say that children transmit the disease significantly.”

Dr. Atlas pointed out that many American teachers are not in high-risk age groups and therefore, should not be concerned. He also noted that those who are nervous or high-risk can take extra precautions.

“It’s true that there are high-risk teachers and those teachers should be able to believe in their social distancing and masks. They can teach using social distancing. And if they still are afraid they can stay at home. There’s no reason to lock up the children,” he said.

According to Dr. Atlas, closing down the schools and continuing online education would hinder children from a full learning experience that includes social interaction and hands-on teaching.

“Long distance learning is a failure,” he said.

Dr. Atlas also added that many other Western countries have opened and operated schools during the pandemic successfully.

“We are the only country not opening schools. This is absurd,” he said. “Look at the science. I’m saying use critical thinking and logic.”

Despite skepticism from the CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield on the current COVID-19 situation paired with the upcoming flu season, Dr. Atlas believes that keeping schools closed would be a grave policy mistake.

“This is the biggest problem of all. Yet again we are going to commit some severe public policy without regards to the harm of the public policy,” he said. “If we start acting out of fear and are an outlier in this country, this country is finished.”

“You either believe the science or not,” he added. “You can’t insist that you believe in the science and then act contrary to science.”

[End]

Why do Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the fake news media hate science? It’s a real mystery.

New Jersey Voter Fraud Incident Reveals Democrat Plan for November

But…but…but…we’ve been assured by Nancy Pelosi and Jake Tapper that voter fraud with mail-in ballots is a myth. – They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?

Why yes, yes they would.

About 1/5th of all ballots cast in a Paterson, New Jersey special election for city council have been thrown out by a judge as being fraudulent. Mail-in ballots were stolen from mailboxes by Democrat political operatives, filled out with forged signatures and mailed in as part of a scheme led by four men, Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez, Councilman Shahin Khalique, and Abu Razyen.

This kind of voter fraud is a virtually 100% Democrat phenomenon, perpetrated all across the country, mainly in low-income and heavily-minority communities. From a piece at The Federalist:

Khalique and Mendez both won their races by incredibly close margins. Mendez ousted incumbent William McKoy with a mere 245-vote lead. Khalique’s race was decided by a difference of only eight votes, though a recount placed him exactly equal with his challenger.

Jackson, Mendez, and Khalique have all been charged with the following: fraud in casting mail-in vote in the third degree, unauthorized possession of ballots in the third degree, tampering with public records in the third degree, and falsifying or tampering with records in the fourth degree. Mendez also faces charges of second-degree election fraud and third-degree false registration or transfer. Rayzen is charged with fraud in casting mail-in vote and unauthorized possession of ballots, both in the third degree.

The frustration with fraud is leading some to call for the total invalidation of the election. A local NAACP leader, Rev. Kenneth Clayton, argues the city should have an entirely new election due to the rampant alleged fraud.

“These kinds of acts make people not want to vote anymore. They feel disenfranchised, disconnected that their votes don’t count, and that is not fair to people,” Clayton said. He is filing a formal complaint to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who ordered the election to be exclusively mail-in.

Benjie Wimberly, deputy speaker of the New Jersey Assembly, likewise criticized the governor for the policy. He too fears voter disenfranchisement, and believes the state should do more to allow in-person voting to prevent these kinds of issues.

[End]

Note that the people who are doing the complaining about how easy it is to commit rampant fraud in a mail-in election are also all Democrats, who understand what the deal is here.

This kind of voter fraud has long in fact been one of the most common kinds practiced by Democrats. It has been in practice for decades involving absentee ballots, focused in areas where Democrat officials control local governments. If you control the local government, you have access to the list of local citizens who request absentee ballots. From that point, it is a simple thing to find out what day the ballots are being delivered and have operatives follow mail trucks through the relevant neighborhoods and remove the ballots from mailboxes. I have actually watched such operations in action in South Texas.

But doing this with absentee ballots is admittedly more difficult, precisely because those ballots must be requested by the voter in advance, as President Donald Trump notes here:

Mail-in ballots do not have that extra layer of security – Democrat operatives could just follow mail trucks around on the right day and loot every mailbox in neighborhoods where residents can’t afford security cameras. In a 100% mail-in election like Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are pushing this year, millions of Americans would end up being completely disenfranchised.

Over the past 20 years, Democrat governors and party-controlled legislatures in a growing number of states have ordered that all voting be conducted by mail. If you don’t think fraud just like this is widespread in elections in those states, you are hopelessly naive.

We have to understand that Democrats literally believe they are entitled to power because they are better people than you are. Armed with that conceit, they absolutely believe that any means necessary to obtain and maintain political power are absolutely justified.

Everyone needs to communicate with their U.S. senators to ensure they kill any proposal from the House – where Pelosi rules with a decrepit fist – that would mandate a national mail-in election. There is no question at all the Democrat Party plans to use COVID-19 as a justification to steal this election. The future of the country is really at stake.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Pelosi’s $10.99 Cultural Appropriation and Romney’s Bridge to Nowhere

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

So, what was this really all about?

Image

Do any of you think that every Democrat member of congress just keeps a Kente cloth garment lying around the office to pull out on special occasions? Or is it more likely that maybe last Wednesday, at a meeting during which they were planning how to milk maximum political leverage out of this carefully-choreographed George Floyd funeral tour, some enterprising staffer found this on Amazon:

Image

So, you order 50 of those, and presto! Even Gerrold Nadler can have his very own Kente cloth scarf, all for the cost of about $550.

Do you think there is a single person among that group of congressional Democrats who has the slightest understanding of the origins of the Kente cloth, or what its meaning is? Because, to very real human beings in Ghana, which served as one of the central staging points for the African slave trade centuries ago, those cloths and their patterns do have very special meaning.

They aren’t some costume for cynical politicians to wear to Halloween parties, not some modern-day version of the blackface get-up worn by the Ralph Northams and Justin Trudeaus in their younger days. Do you suppose that Nancy Pelosi or Gerrold Nadler or a single one of their Democrat colleagues gave any of that a moment of thought as they dressed up for their moment of disgraceful cultural appropriation? If you do, you’re a fool.

When asked at her press conference if she thought maybe she and her colleagues were using the garments to pander to Black voters, Pelosi just smiled and asked, “Well, is it working?” What else do you need to know?

Incidentially, Pelosi’s is a good question, one to which I really don’t think we know the answer yet. It’s a long time until November, folks.

Does he keep notebooks full of black people, too? – Then there’s pathetic RINO Mitt Romney, who spent about 30 seconds interfering in a Black Lives Matter march on Sunday to get his own photo op:

Tremendous Sincerity': Trump Mocks Mitt Romney for Joining Black ...

In a report at The Hill today, Romney, the most whitebread white guy in the entire U.S. Senate, says that he wants to be the catalyst who forces change in the GOP’s relationship with the Black community:

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday said his party has “an embarrassingly small share of African American votes” and would like to change that, one day after he marched in a protest in Washington.

Romney said he is working with several Republican colleagues on legislation to “make some changes to the way we do our policing” in an effort to crack down on aberrant officers who violate civil rights or use excessive force against people of certain races.

He noted that Democrats who unveiled a police reform bill earlier Monday did not reach out to any Republicans to discuss the legislation beforehand.

He said the lack of outreach indicates it “is designed to be a message piece.”

He said he hopes to put together what ultimately will be bipartisan legislation to reform policing that can pass the Senate.

He said any legislation “needs to have people on both sides of the aisle working together.”

[End]

Let’s just all ignore the fact that President Donald Trump has, at urging of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, already stolen much of the thunder from any congressional deal on this with his signing of prison reform legislation last year. That prison reform bill, by the way, repealed several of the provisions targeting young Black males contained in the 1994 crime bill signed by Bill Clinton – and co-sponsored by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden.

Yeah, let’s ignore all of that because Mitt freakin’ Romney thinks he’s going to be the guy who bridges the gap between the GOP and the African American community.

*sigh*

Dear Republicans: With a bridge like Mitt Romney, you might as well have a bridge to nowhere.

Donald Trump No GIF by Election 2016 - Find & Share on GIPHY

Democrats hate Jewish people, part 62,532. – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his NYPD have looked the other way as tens of thousands of protesters, rioters, looters and arsonists have turned much of New York City into Dresden circa 1945 for the past two weeks, never saying word one about social distancing or wearing masks.

But boy, let a group of maybe a dozen Hasidic Jewish kids who are at zero risk of getting or spreading the Wuhan Virus congregate together in a local park, and this is what happens:

Disgusting hypocrisy and Antisemitism on display.

The first leak in the Minneapolis dam. – A manufacturing company that employed 50 Minnesotans says it will move elsewhere after city officials refused to do anything to prevent its facility from burning to the ground week before last. Kris Wyrobek, President and owner of 7-Sigma, Inc. told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that “we are sorting through the rubble, trying to figure out how to get this operational again. We are cautiously optimistic we can do that. But we are certainly not able to do that in Minneapolis.”

From the Tribune report:

“They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”

Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the first night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm’s way. He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.

“The fire engine was just sitting there,” Wyrobek said, “but they wouldn’t do anything.”

[End]

Wyrobek said the decision to relocate from the radical leftist Democrat-run city has already been made and that there is nothing feckless Mayor Jacob Frey could say that would change his mind. Expect hundreds of other Minneapolis business owners to turn this first leak in the dam into a raging flood in the days and weeks to come.

That is all.

The Evening Wrap: Fudd Disarmed, CNN Fakes a Poll, DOJ Demands a Prince and More

From our “Leftists Destroy Everything They Touch” file… – The evil propagandists at HBO are doing a remake of the old Looney Tunes cartoons that I loved as a kid, and as soon as I heard that would be happening I knew they would find a way to ruin the greatest cartoon franchise in American history.

Sure enough, they did. At a rollout event last week, the PC police producing the coming atrocities announced that neither Elmer Fudd – whose character is a hunter – nor the gunfighter Yosemite Sam will have … wait for it … their GUNS. To make this even more of an utter and complete farcical enterprise, HBO’s social justice warrior spokesperson said that, instead of his trusty double-barrel shotgun, Elmer Fudd will carry a scythe. So I guess he’s going to spend his time harvesting wheat instead of hunting that wascally wabbit.

No word on what Yosemite Sam might be carrying, but I suppose we should all be happy if the producers don’t try to re-imagine him as a drag queen conducting story time hours at elementary schools in the Bronx.

Then again, who really cares, given the reality that, without the late, great Mel Blanc performing the voices of the characters, it’s all going to be unwatchable trash in any event.

About that “scary” CNN poll… – CNN today provides a textbook reason why no one should pay the slightest attention to any poll that is affiliated with any corrupt media outlet. This particular CNN poll claims to show Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden with a 55-41 lead over President Donald Trump.

Scary, right?

Except that, when you look into the bowels of the poll, it has significantly over-sampled Democrats, under-sampled independents, and massively over-sampled “non-Hispanic minority voters” by almost 100%. Had this poll’s sample been appropriately structured to actually reflect the American public, it would likely have produced a result similar to the poll released today by Zogby Analytics.

That Zogby poll pegs the presidential race in a statistical tie at 46/46. It measures President Trump’s public approval rating at 48%, right in line with other non-media-outlet polls like Rasmussen and Gallup and HarrisX. Perhaps even more telling, Zogby finds that fully 53% of those surveyed agree that Democrat governors around the country are keeping their non-scientific shutdowns in place in order to try to damage the President’s re-election chances.

We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: Any time you see a poll that is affiliated with any media operation, whether it’s CNN or Fox News or the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post, that poll was not created to try to gauge real public sentiment on whatever its’ subject might be. Those polls are created for one reason only, which is to create “news” stories.

So, please stop  emailing and private messaging me to see what I think about the CNN and Fox polls. What I think is that you need to ignore them and focus on something real.

Photo op? What photo op? – I’m old enough to remember last Monday, when every Democrat, SJW, snowflake and corrupt reporter screamed to high heaven about the President holding a photo op. Obviously, that’s all been forgotten:

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 461 points to close at 27,572, and the NASDAQ set yet another all-time record high in heavy trading today.

Imagine what is going to happen once the Democrats finally give up on their failing Wuhan Virus-related lockdown strategy. It’s going to be absolutely glorious.

Speaking of the Wuhan Virus… – I kid you not, CNN ran a chyron this morning that read “Experts Fear Trump May Release Vaccine Too Early To Help Campaign.”  You don’t have to believe me – just look at the screen shot:

Image may contain: 2 people, text

Talk about giving the game away. Here we have CNN and some nitwit named Peter Hotez actually expressing fear that President Trump would not wait until after the damn election to release a vaccine should one be developed in the next few months. What kind of ghoul even has such a thought spring into his head, much less express it verbally on semi-national airport TV?

It truly boggles the mind.

Would have been nice for you to admit this in February. – But, of course, the WHO was too busy at that time trying to help China execute its cover up. That corrupt international organization admitted today that transmission of the Wuhan Virus by those who are not exhibiting any symptoms is “very rare.”

Oh. Maybe that explains why not one of the hundreds of people filmed 3 weeks ago having fun in a pool in Lake of the Ozarks has tested positive for the virus.

If you feel sick, get tested and stay home. If you have no symptoms, go live your damn life and stop listening to idiots like Gretchen Whitmer.

Dear DOJ:  Bill and Hillary Clinton are right up the road in Chappaqua. – In case you missed it, the DOJ officially notified the British Government that it needs to hand over Prince Andrew, a long-time associate of Jeffrey Epstein, for questioning in its ongoing investigation:

Look, I get why the Justice Department lawyers want to talk with Andrew, as he no doubt has gobs of information about Epstein’s illicit activities. But the question must be asked, why are Bill and Hillary Clinton, and other well-known close friends of Epstein (can you say Bloomberg?) seemingly getting a pass here?

The long-time relationship between Bill Clinton and Epstein has been public knowledge since late in Clinton’s own presidency, for crying out loud. Epstein was a man who ran a massive pedophilia human trafficking operation for 25 years, and Bill Clinton’s name is all over his private jet’s flight logs.

If the DOJ really is looking to bust Epstein’s pedophile ring, it would simply be unacceptable for the Clintons and other prominent Americans who spent years snuggling up to Epstein to get a pass.

And by the way, Epstein did not kill himself.

That is all.

Pelosi, Fellow Dems Prove that Cultural Appropriation is Not a Thing Anymore

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

There comes that “T” word again. – Democrats in congress unveiled their own plan for de-funding the nation’s police departments, couching the plan to create societal chaos all across the nation in the warm and fuzzy language they always use to surround their plans to bring creeping Soviet-style communism to America. Check out this video clip:

There’s that word again: Transform. It was Obama’s code for implementing communism used throughout his 2008 presidential campaign, and it has been repeatedly used by Democrats and their corrupt media toadies ever since.

The Democrat plan is to “transform” local police departments in the very same way that they “transformed” the public schools over the past 40 years: By eliminating excellence and dumbing them down to the lowest common denominator.

You don’t have to believe me: All you have to do is listen closely to what they say themselves. Here, for example, is Minneapolis city council member Lisa Bender this morning on CNN:

“Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”

Did you catch that? The basis for deconstructing and de-funding local police departments is that the expectation of excellent community policing comes from a place of “white privilege.” Now, any sane and rational and patriotic American who actually cares about this country would attempt to address any inequality in community policing by raising the standards in the neighborhoods who are currently being under-served.

But not the Democrats – oh, no. That is just not the Democrat way, after all, thanks to their allegiance to the teachings of Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

No, the Democrat approach is to instead implement policies designed to ensure that literally no part of their communities are in any way safe or secure – thus, making all parts of the community equally awful. It’s all about demonic notions of “fairness” and “equality.”

See how that works?

By the way, that CNN clip is a tailor-made 30-second ad for this Fall’s Trump Campaign. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had an ad up using it by the end of today.

Hey, I’m old enough to remember when the social media outrage mob would have called this “cultural appropriation.”

A bunch of privileged, mostly-white members of congress, most of whom have never set foot in Ghana – where the kente cloth garments they are wearing orginated – taking a knee for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to “honor” George Floyd, a man who also never set foot in Ghana.

So, “cultural appropriation” is obviously not a thing anymore in the wake of the past 2 weeks of demonstrations and looting and burning and rioting. You know, kind of like that whole “social distancing” deal that was all the liberal rage 15 days ago.

By the way, all those members of congress taking the knee? They all live behind walls in high-end communities, have security details and are driven to and from work in limousines. So, if you think that anything they’re planning on doing to you and your communities will have the slightest impact on their personal lives, well, think again.

That is all.
