Tuesday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson Exposes Soros as Seattle’s Mayor Hires a Pimp

Here’s how depraved Democrats are in their pursuit of political power. – The House’s new draft of a short-term budget deal through December 11 defunds school lunches for children and aid to American farmers, so that their candidates can then go into rural areas where both are needed and blame Donald Trump.

From a story at BreakingDefense.com:

The document, released Monday by the House Appropriations Committee, could go up for a vote before the entire House later this week before being sent to the Senate.

In a sign of the fights to come with only nine days until the federal government shuts down, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell immediately rejected the proposed House bill, writing on Twitter: “House Democrats’ rough draft of a government funding bill shamefully leaves out key relief and support that American farmers need. This is no time to add insult to injury and defund help for farmers and rural America.”

[End]

Every time you think the Democrat Party could not possibly become any more despicable than it already is, they go and prove you wrong again.

Fox News can’t mute Tucker Carlson. – Fox is moving increasingly left during its daytime programming, but the ratings power of its evening host lineup is keeping that four-hour block steadfastly conservative.

Late last week, we saw the spectacle of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich being shut down by Harris Faulkner, Melissa Francis and Marie Harf when he raised the unarguable fact that George Soros has spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade supporting radical anarchists in district attorney elections all over the country. This summer, we saw the results of that Soros effort with hundreds of domestic terrorists being released immediately without charges filed against them after they had been arrested for rioting in cities like Portland, Seattle, Minnesota, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago and New York.

Tucker Carlson, host of Fox’s 8-9 p.m. ET hour, took it upon himself to respond to Fox’s censorship of Gingrich by airing a full-segment report on Soros’s evil activity last night, and it is outstanding. Here’s the clip of it:

So long as his ratings remain strong, Carlson apparently still overrules Paul Ryan in the Fox News power structure.

Philly fans boo everything, even when they aren’t there. – During their loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was booed twice as he came off the field after throwing interceptions:

That’s nothing unusual, of course. What is odd about this situation, though, is that there were no fans in attendance in Philly on Sunday. Wentz was in fact booed by the fake fan noise being pumped into the stadium by employees of his own team. I’m not sure you’ll see that adherence to authenticity in any other BLMFL stadium this season.

While Joe Biden flubbed the lines to the Pledge of Allegiance while reading yet another TelePrompter speech to yet another imaginary audience, President Donald Trump put in a full day’s work at the White House – including a meeting with potential nominee Amy Coney Barrett – then flew out to Toledo, Ohio for another of his massive airport rallies.

Here are some scenes from that:

But the fake pollsters expect you to believe that the guy who doesn’t even know how to put on his mask with the blue part facing outwards is leading the incumbent who draws these crowds everywhere he goes.

Don Lemon says the part he isn’t supposed to say out loud. – CNN is now officially aligned with the domestic terrorist groups and their goals of destroying America.  Watch as pretend journalist Don Lemon formally adopts the Antifa/BLM goal of “[blowing] up the entire system”:

Dear Don: When what you’re saying is too extreme for even Fredo to endorse, you’ve probably said too much.

The Big Apple continues to rot from its core. – In a bit of real news that was of course ignored by our corrupt, mainstream news media, the Daily Caller reports that 87% of New York City restaurants were unable to make their August rent payments due to the depressing effects of ongoing lockdown orders by the city’s buffoon Mayor, and thanks to the fact that House Democrats killed a Republican stimulus bill that would have provided rent support before they left for their August vacation.

From that Daily Caller story:

A survey found that 87% of New York City restaurants, bars, and nightlife venues couldn’t pay their full rent in August as the city grapples with permanent business closures and unemployment.

The survey by the NYC Hospitality Alliance also showed that 34% of these establishments couldn’t pay rent at all, Patch reported.

The results, which were released Monday, come ahead of the scheduled reopening of indoor dining at 25% capacity starting Sept. 30. If positive rates for coronavirus don’t show significant increase, the capacity will be raised to 50% by Nov. 1, according to Eater.

But many restaurants are struggling to remain afloat in the meantime, and outdoor dining seemingly failed to help many businesses survive the warmer months of the pandemic.

“Restaurants, bars and nightlife venues have been financially devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Andrew Rigie, the group’s executive director, said in a statement according to the NY Post.

“Even before the pandemic when operating at 100 percent occupancy, these small businesses were struggling to stay open. Now we’re seeing widespread closures, approximately 150,000 industry workers are still out of their jobs, and the overwhelming majority of these remaining small businesses cannot afford to pay rent.”

[End]

Thanks, Bill de Blasio and Nancy Pelosi!

Meanwhile, in Riot City, USA… – The domestic terrorists in BLM and Antifa took their rioting to another residential neighborhood overnight as local police stood around and watched:

In Seattle, communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan has hired a pimp to be her “Street Czar”, because of course she has:

Biden Trainwreck Coming: Michael Moore and Bill Maher get Something Right

I’m no fan of either Michael Moore or Bill Maher, but every once in a great while they get something right that deserves noting. Today is one of those great whiles.

On his Facebook page on Friday, the filmmaker Moore, who has obviously seen the Democrat Party’s latest polling data, put up a post warning his fans of a Biden trainwreck coming. He warned them that voter enthusiasm for President Donald Trump is “OFF THE CHARTS” and that a replay of the 2016 election could be on the way.

From a report at The Hill:

Filmmaker Michael Moore warned Democrats that President Trump appears to have momentum behind his reelection campaign in key battleground states, with the progressive activist saying enthusiasm for Trump is “OFF THE CHARTS” compared with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Moore pointed to polling in battleground states such as Minnesota and Michigan in making the case that Trump was running alongside or ahead of Biden in key areas, setting himself up for another potential upset in November.

“Are you ready for a Trump victory? Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again? Do you find comfort in your certainty that there is no way Trump can win? Are you content with the trust you’ve placed in the DNC [Democratic National Committee] to pull this off?” Moore wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.

“I’m warning you almost 10 weeks in advance. The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS! For Joe, not so much,” he added. “Don’t leave it to the Democrats to get rid of Trump. YOU have to get rid of Trump. WE have to wake up every day for the next 67 days and make sure each of us are going to get a hundred people out to vote. ACT NOW!”

[End]

Isn’t that wonderful? Isn’t it great to see this human pig flying into another fit of rage and fear? Simply delightful.

HBO’s Bill Maher, another celebrity with whom the Democrats share information and talking points, said on his Friday night show that he is feeling “very nervous, the same way I did four years ago at this time” about the likelihood that President Trump would win the November election.

From a report at DailyWire:

The Left is starting to realize that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden might not coast to victory in November as easily as they have told themselves he would.

On Friday, “Real Time” host Bill Maher became the latest left-leaning member of the media to voice his concerns that President Donald Trump might actually win re-election. Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid of “The ReidOut,” Maher expressed his concerns about how the Republican National Convention may have spoken to voters.

“I don’t know if this stuff works, but it might,” Maher said, as reported by Fox News. “I am feeling less confident about this — maybe it’s just their convention bump got to me, but I’m feeling less confident than I was a month ago.”

Reid agreed with Maher that the RNC was a “smoothly produced thing” and went on to deride the “four black guys” and the “women” who spoke at the convention as tokens that provided a “permission” slip for people who may have been uncomfortable supporting Trump again.

Maher said the RNC strategy was “effective” and noted Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s speech as resonating with African Americans.

“He was pushing back on Joe Biden for saying, you know, if you vote for Trump, you ain’t Black and I don’t think that is a good thing for Joe Biden to have said,” Maher said. “He [Cameron] said ‘I have my own mind.’”

“People do have their own minds. I’ve never been a fan of conformity. I’ve never been a fan of, ‘We all wear pink on Wednesday,’ we all have to do this, we all have to say this. … I don’t bend the knee and I get that people are pushing back at that kind of stuff,” Maher added.

[End]

Neither Maher nor Moore would say it, but the ongoing riots being staged by Democrat support groups Antifa and BLM in Democrat-controlled cities all over the country are one of the main reasons why the polling and political equation are shifting beneath Biden’s feet.

CNN’s despicable Don Lemon – with whom the Democrats also share their talking points and polling data – hasn’t been bashful about talking about this inconvenient truth, though. He talked about it on his show for the second straight night on Friday, this time urging Biden to “give a speech” condemning the Democrat-sponsored violence, as if that would make it all better:

“Presentation matters,” he said. “To come out and stand at a podium in D.C., or wherever, even in Wisconsin, and say — listen, this is what I expected today if they were going to really come out and do the thing right, whether it was going to be Kamala Harris or Joe Biden: ‘Good afternoon, everyone. The rioting has to stop. The violence has to stop. And under a Biden-Harris administration, there will be no lawlessness on the street.’ ”

This is sheer panic, folks. These parrots for the Democrat Party know a looming train wreck when they see one. After all, they lived through it just four short years ago, and they hear that Trump train a-comin’ round the bend again.

Isn’t it all just absolutely glorious?

That is all.

Democrats are Projecting Their November Plans – All we Have to do is pay Attention

The masks are coming off in droves now, folks. – The radical left is just coming right out and telling you what they have planned for you now; they are no longer even trying to shield it. All you have to do is pay attention.

Yesterday was a field day in these terms, as leftist luminaries from Don Lemon to Nancy Pelosi to the Pantsuit Princess herself spewed out their hate rhetoric towards President Trump and anyone who supports him completely unfiltered.

Don Lemon, a high priest of the Nazi-style chaos cult that is CNN, had this to say about you in a conversation with fellow high priest Fredo Cuomo:

Here’s a clip from that story at The Blaze:

During the conversation, Lemon shared his unvarnished thoughts on the tens of millions of Americans who support the president.

“If I had a real friend, who was involved in a cult, which I feel it is cultish behavior, I must try to help them,” Lemon said, comparing those who support the president to blind followers of a cult. “And you can only go so far until you say, until you reach bottom, I cannot deal with it. It’s like an addiction. Until you reach bottom and you want help, I can’t deal with it.”

“Here’s how I feel about this,” he continued. “I don’t care about whether you’re right or left. I’ve been right — I was a young Republican — and left. I am an independent now. And I am an independent thinker, and I believe in reality. I believe in facts. I believe one plus one equals two. And so, when I’m talking to people who, [are not] smart but, who think they are smart … then, I have to — I got to let you go.”

Lemon then suggested that a type of intervention is necessary before Trump supporters are allowed to vote.

“[Trump] lies to people and they believe it,” he said. “And so, what is that? Cultish behavior. And I think a lot of people need to be deprogrammed, right now, before they cast their next ballots.”

[End]

For the record, Don Lemon is a programmed cultist who spent the last four years pushing the “Russia collusion” lie and still pushes it; he has spent the last year pushing the Ukraine impeachment hoax and still pushes it; he has spent the last 3 years pushing the Charlottesville “really fine people” lie, and still pushes it; he pushed the Obamacare “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” lie for 8 long years; he pushed the Benghazi coverup for four solid years. He’s spent the past couple of weeks pushing Nancy Pelosi’s post office hoax. The list goes on and on.

Indeed, Don Lemon happily pushes every lie that the DNC tells him to push because the daily talking points memo from the DNC is his scripture, it is his religious dogma and he, like Fredo and everyone else at the Nazi-style CNN chaos cult, is a true believer.

Lemon’s remarks amount to a clear case of a cultist’s projection, plain and simple.

Speaking of projection, watch as San Fran Nan Pelosi calls President Trump and anyone who supports him “domestic enemies,” and  “enemies of the state.” Not kidding:

From a story at the Washington Times:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ratcheted up the revolutionary rhetoric on Monday by calling President Trump and his allies “domestic enemies” who must be ousted from the White House.

The California Democrat warned MSNBC viewers that Mr. Trump’s opposition to a sudden push for mail-in voting systems was tantamount to a Constitutional crisis.

“We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the lawmaker continued. “And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.”

The Republican’s “GOP War Room” YouTube channel immediately reacted to appearance by calling it “unhinged.”

“Let’s just get out there and mobilize, organize, and not let the President deter anybody from voting,” Mrs. Pelosi added. “Support the postal system, which is election central. They’re doing everything they can, suppress the vote — with your actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this. It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state.

[End]

So, if you oppose to the communist Democrat Party’s plot to steal the November elections via a mass mail-in voting system that will be easy to subvert, you – not the Democrats plotting to steal the elections – are an “enemy of the state.”

That, friends, is projection on a grand scale.

But wait, there’s more!

But Wait! There's More! - Billy Mays - quickmeme

Now, let’s talk about Hillary Clinton, the Pantsuit Princess, the Fainting Felon, the Coughing Crook, the Grasping Grifter who has spent the last 38 years corrupting and looting every American institution on which she has been able to lay her gnarly hands.

Just as she and her communist Democrat cronies and their corrupt toadies in the news media did in 2016, they have all been ramping up the drumbeat over the past few months claiming that President Trump will not be willing to concede the election on November 3 should he lose. This was an outright lie in 2016, and a clear and obvious case of projection given that the Hacking Hag has spent the last four years refusing to concede the clear results of the election, in which she was thrashed convincingly in the only measure that matters, the Electoral Vote.

Since around May, they have all ramped-up this false drumbeat against the President again, its purpose to disguise their own plan for creating as much chaos around the election as possible, thus giving Joe Biden his excuse to refuse to concede the results on Election Night.

Yesterday, the Fainting Felon just came right out and admitted it:

Hillary Clinton urged Joe Biden not to concede the presidential race if he is trailing President Trump on election night.

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year’s election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic. She told Showtime’s The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day.

Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don’t give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is,” Clinton said.

[End]

And there you have it. Set your clocks to it, folks: Joe Biden will not concede “under any circumstances” on Election Night. That is the Democrat plan. That is what is going to happen.

All these people do is project their own intentions. It’s in pretty much everything they say. All you have to do is pay attention, and take them at their word.

That is all.

Watch Tucker Carlson Destroy Don Lemon in 92 Seconds

Down goes Lemon! Down goes Lemon! Down goes Lemon! – Holy, cow, this is brutal. Watch as Tucker Carlson absolutely destroys Don Lemon and CNN in 92 short seconds (Transcript follows):

Transcript: 

Carlson: Now, if you’re running a channel like CNN, you want dumb people on the air because they’re compliant. They’ll say what they’re told, they’ll tell the audience what the moment demands, they’ll never stray from the script, and that’s exactly what Mr. Lemon is doing. But just 7 years ago, it was a different country and people were kind of allowed to say what they think. And so, at the time, here is what Don Lemon was saying about Black communities. Watch this.

Lemon: More than 72% of children in the African American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers. And studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison. And the cycle continues. So please, Black folks, as I said – if this doesn’t apply to you, I’m not talking to you – pay attention to and think about what has been presented in recent history as acceptable behavior. Pay close attention to the hip-hop and rap culture that many of you embrace, a culture that glorifies everything that I just mentioned: Thug and reprehensible behavior. A culture that is making a lot of people rich, just not you. And it’s not going to.

Carlson: Wow. Can you imagine what would happen if Don Lemon or his body-building buddy over there, or any of these hair hats, said anything like that on CNN tonight, or MSNBC? That would be their last live broadcast ever. They would be fired immediately. You can’t express views like that, and so they don’t. Tells you a lot

[End]

Of course Tucker is 100% right on this: Don Lemon and his fellow “hair hat” hosts at CNN and MSNBC are nothing more than automatons, useful idiots who the honchos at CNN and MSNBC can put on the air and feel certain will stick to the DNC script, whatever that happens to be on any given day.

Lemon is a rank coward – and credibly accused sexual assaulter – and thus will likely not address Carlson’s monologue. But if he were to address it, he would no doubt recite some talking points that had been carefully drafted for him about how times change, and his thinking has evolved on fatherless children, yada yada yada, blah-blah-blah.

Well, what exactly has changed since 2013? That’s easy: First, you have the ascendancy of the Marxist Democrat Party support group Black Lives Matter. Did you know that advocacy FOR fatherless families is one of that domestic terrorist group’s central tenets? That’s right: BLM doesn’t think 72% of Black babies being born out of wedlock is a high enough percentage – these thugs (Lemon’s word) are shooting for 100%, because they know the chaos that creates in the Black communities spreads across the entire country.

The second obvious thing that’s changed is who the President happens to be. In 2013, it was Barack Obama, who spoke frequently about the damage done to black communities by federal policies that incentivize fatherless families in the Black community. Of course, he never implemented a single policy to try to change anything, but he talked a good game.

In that 2013 clip, it’s a safe bet that Lemon was simply parroting recent remarks made by Obama, or perhaps Eric Holder, who was the Attorney General at the time. It has to be something like that, given that Lemon is obviously not capable of forming his own thoughts on any subject. Like Joe Biden staring blankly at the camera in his basement, Lemon was just reading a script.

Today, Donald Trump is the President, which at CNN HQ means that the scripts being handed to Lemon to recite are being compiled to reflect the views of Black Lives Matter, which the Democrats and corrupt media are working feverishly to normalize as a legitimate “civil rights” organization, even though that terrorist group advocates for policies of destruction and deprivation of such rights.

Everything you see today on CNN, MNSBC and 98% of the national news media is engineered with a single goal in mind: To deny the re-election of Donald J. Trump. Lemon is just a mindless automaton with a $200 haircut who looks good in a suit and happens to be a good reader.

The hilarious part of all of this is that Lemon has no idea he read that stuff in 2013, and was probably as surprised as anyone to see that clip. Because the messages he parrots are not his – he’s just the empty vessel who carries them on-air.

That is all.

Don Lemon’s Unwitting Gift to Trump Supporters

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

He got a bigger audience from this than he ever gets on his low-rated show. – CNN’s dimwitted, haughty night-time host Don Lemon made actual news over the past two days when he played host to another in a long line of segments ridiculing the average, hard-working Americans who make up the preponderance of President Donald Trump’s support base.

In case you’ve managed to miss it to this point, here’s a clip of the segment in question, which apparently took place on Saturday:

So, this is likely to become the next “deplorables” incident committed by the demented Democrats and their corrupt media toadies. The joker on the right in the clip with Lemon is the detestable hack Rick Wilson, a pretend “conservative” who worked on the … wait for it … Evan McMullin presidential campaign in 2016. He now makes money by being one of CNN’s fake conservative mascots. The clown on the left is some guy named Wajahat Ali, who bills himself on Twitter as an op/ed contributor for the … wait for it … New York Times, and an on-air contributor for CNN. Because of course he is.

Clowns to the left of Lemon, Jokers to the right, there he is, stuck in the middle on national television, ridiculing 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and the millions more who have joined his supporter base since. Not really a good look, even for a CNN host with the IQ and character of the average Louisiana swamp nutria.

Lemon apparently got a scolding from his corporate bosses over the segment on Tuesday, after the clip had gone viral Monday night. Which can only be attributed to someone at parent company AT&T fearing that it might not be good for its cellular service or DirecTV customer base for CNN’s on-air [bad] talent to be actively ridiculing half of the American public. Certainly, no one in CNN’s own management gives a damn about such considerations, as demonstrated by the fake news channel’s behavior over the last five years.

Regardless of who in corporate management initiated the action, Lemon obviously spent much of his day on Tuesday with CNN’s HR and communications staff, and came up with a very Clintonian non-apology to recite at the start of his show Tuesday night:

Let’s break that statement down, shall we?

And one final note that I have for you because this is personally important to me to address this, okay? Anyone, ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you I don’t believe in belittling people [Ah, the old Clintonian “ask anyone who knows me” dodge. Standard non-apology tactic there.]

— belittling anyone for who they are, what they believe, or where they’re from. [Yet, the clip clearly shows Lemon roaring with laughter, to the point of tears, as his two dimwitted guests belittled millions of ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country for ‘who they are, what they believe, and where they’re from.’]

During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh and while in the moment I found the joke humorous, and I didn’t catch everything that was said. [Oh, boy, the “I didn’t catch everything that was said” dodge, which is just a slight variation from the “I was misquoted” dodge and the “I was taken out of context” dodge. Again, standard non-apology tactic.]

Just to make this perfectly clear, I was laughing at the joke and not at any group of people.” [And yet, clearly, Don Lemon, Rick Wilson and that Ali guy who nobody’s ever heard of were laughing uproariously at an easily-identified group of people called “Trump supporters.”]

Lemon’s statement – no doubt dictated to him by his AT&T/CNN bosses – was not an apology at all. It was simply more condescension towards a group of millions of Americans he personally hates and who his bosses simply do not value. It was a desperate and insincere act by a haughty, thoughtless jackass whose only real concern is that he doesn’t want his face to be featured in thousands of Trump/Republican campaign ads this Fall.

Well, sorry, Don – too late for that. Any Republican candidate who doesn’t produce a TV ad featuring this clip is a Republican candidate who is probably too dumb to win his or her election.

Matter of fact, Ronna McDaniel and the RNC are already showing candidates how it’s done:

Thanks for the gift, Don.

What comes next? On tonight’s show – or maybe he’ll wait until tomorrow – Lemon will start claiming he is receiving death threats over the clip, a tactic to which Ali already resorted in a Tweet on Tuesday. It’s nonsense, but hey, it’s on the next page of the playbook.

These people hate you and wish you were dead. Never, ever forget that.

That is all.

This is a Week the Democrats are Going to Want to Take Back

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, are the Democrats having a bad week, or what?  It’s just Wednesday, and it’s hard to imagine how things could go more poorly for them. Let’s go through some of the highlights, er, lowlights.

Monday began with Jabba The Nadler backing down on his plan to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt, as he announced a “deal” with the AG’s office in which his Witch Hunt Committee would receive a few of the documents they’ve been demanding but have no intention of actually reading. Obviously, this means that the Democrats had gotten some really bad polling numbers on the whole effort to demonize Barr, since everything they do and say is based on focus groups and polls.

Jabba then moved to a disastrous hearing in which old Watergate felon John Dean offered testimony about the Mueller Report, even though he has no original knowledge about any aspect of it. The hearing was a complete fiasco for the Democrats as GOP members like Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, John Ratcliffe and Jim Jordan turned Dean into a human pin cushion. The only thing the hearing demonstrated was the exact reason why Mueller himself refuses to show up and testify.

Also on Monday, the Democrats in the House got caught trying to sneak a pay raise for themselves into an unrelated piece of legislation, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spent the entire week making an ass of herself on Twitter trying to defend the move.

The fake news media spent all day Tuesday building up the two speeches Creepy Uncle Joe was going to make in Iowa in an effort to convince their viewers that the ex-Vice President was about to absolutely destroy President Donald Trump. But, as is pretty much always the case, Biden’s speeches were both duds delivered to audiences so tiny that none of the TV networks dared even show them. Meanwhile, Trump was also giving a speech in Iowa before yet another gigantic, enthusiastic crowd.

Talk about your bad optics.

So, today all the talking heads quit talking about Biden and started talking about the new Quinnipiac Poll, which supposedly shows that Biden would crush Trump in a “landslide”, according to the poll’s spokesman. But a couple of glaring problems with narrative become immediately obvious:

First, we are still 17 months away from the election, and any polls taken now are utterly meaningless. The poll shows Biden beating Trump by 13 points, and…so what? Hell, ABC/Washington Post released a poll showing Hillary Clinton with that exact same lead on Trump just three weeks before the 2016 election. How did that work out?

Second, that very same Quinnipiac poll shows Biden’s lead over the rest of the Democrat field crashing, with his edge over The Commie falling from 19 points last month to just 11 points today. The man isn’t even going to maintain a lead for the nomination past this September, so why should anyone get excited about some fake poll showing him with a lead over the President?

No one should, and no one outside of the studios of CNN and MSNBC is.

Then, to make matters even worse, you had Kirsten Gillibrand – fresh off her gay bar fiasco over the weekend – comparing anyone who opposes an unfettered right to kill babies, even after they’ve been born, to racists, homophobes and Nazis. Yeah, that’s not going to play well out here in Flyover Country, Toots. Just ask Abortion Barbie about how it worked out for her when she ran for governor in Texas back in 2014.

Even the Democrat-toady fake media is falling apart. John Nolte reports that last week’s rating show that CNN has lost fully 1/3rd of its prime time audience in the past year, and suffered a 55% drop in the key 25-34 year old advertising demographic. CNN now trails HGTV in the number of prime time viewers. After all, why would anyone watch Fredo Cuomo and Don Lemon blabber on when they can take in another rerun of Flip or Flop for the 5th time?

Speaking of Fredo Cuomo, he interviewed Bill Mahr Monday night, and here’s what Mahr had to say when asked “Do you think he’s [Trump] winning”:

“Yes. And I’m sick of [Trump] winning.  He’s right. I got sick of winning – his winning.”

 

Yikes. Unless things change dramatically, this is a week the Democrats are going to want to take back.

Too bad.

That is all.

Halloween on Twitter: Political Mayhem, Fake News Zombies and Belly Laughs

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One of my Twitter followers sent me a private message today asking “how can you vote for some of these Republicans?” Seriously? You have to ask me that?

My answer was very simple: “Because they aren’t Democrats.” That was several hours ago, and I haven’t heard back from this person. Frankly, I expect she will un-follow me by the end of the day.

But look, why would I or any other thinking person ever vote for another Democrat? It’s a serious question. This is a political party that has over the last three years done everything it can to normalize the most reprehensible anti-American behaviors.

From shooting up Republican softball practices to accosting septuagenarians and their wives in restaurants to Antifa goons beating up people on the streets to CNN talk show hosts dog-whistling approval of potential presidential assassins to rounding up women to try to destroy the family and life of a Supreme Court nominee, if they think it might gain them even a momentary political advantage, Democrats are for it no matter how dangerous, destructive, depraved and despicable it might be.

I’m going to vote for that?  Really?  No, thanks.

Nor am I going to cast a vote to take this country back to the overregulated, moribund economy we had prior to November 9, 2016. I’m not going to vote to lop 25% off of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 2% off of our economic growth rate. I’m not going to vote to put our country back into an irresponsible, un-American agreement with the Mullahs in Iran, or to re-engage us in a Paris “Climate” deal that was really nothing but a global wealth redistribution scheme targeting the American middle class.

Sorry, I’m not down with any of that, and I never will be.

And don’t try to convince me that I can vote for some particular Democrat for congress because he/she would get to Washington and be an “independent voice for Texas” or whatever other nonsense Democrats like Irish Bob O’Rourke are using in their campaign ads.  Give me a break here.  Irish Bob would get to Washington and become the third senator from California.  He’d be Chuck Schumer’s most reliable vote in the U.S. Senate.

Likewise, any Democrat who gets elected to the House of Representatives will be so bullied around by Nancy Pelosi within their first 2 weeks in D.C. that they’ll have literally forgotten where their congressional district even is, much less do anything effective to represent it.

Anyway, that was the bad part of Twitter today, but there was all sorts of fun on that platform as well.  Here follows a selection of the best examples of the day.

 

It’s a great question, and I’m glad Sara Carter asked it:

Speaking of great questions, Mollie Hemingway asks another one here…:

 

Hey, remember when Netflix signed that deal with the Obamas that allows them to produce series for its streaming platform?  Well, guess who their first target is going to be…:

And speaking of things nobody could have possibly seen coming…:

Desperate losing Sen. Claire McCaskill explains who she meant when she claimed in an ad to not be “one of those crazy Democrats,” and the crazy Democrat she specified responds in unambiguous and profane terms.:

Yikes. That particular crazy Democrat has some bite.

Speaking of moves being made by desperate losing Democrats, I give you Ed Donnelly of Indiana.:

There is literally no content too low and despicable for CNN to spew out onto its platform.:

By the way, Mr. Lemon’s boyfriend is white, and radical.

The Alexandria Ocasio Cortez parody account responds, but if you didn’t know it was a parody, you’d totally believe it was something she’d actually said:

 

No day on Twitter could ever be complete without making fun of the Creepy Porn Lawyer.:

Finally, while CNN and MSNBC were misleading their viewers into thinking President Donald Trump was greeted by nothing but protesters and haters on his trip to Pittsburgh to visit with Synagogue shooting survivors, you had to be on Twitter to see the truth:

Just another day of highs, lows and belly laughs on Twitter.

That is all.

So Much Fake News, So Little Time

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • “I said that last night  and again tonight, but nobody said that.  Wait, did I just say that?” – After spending an hour Tuesday night fake moderating a panel during which President Trump was referred to as “unhinged” and other synonyms of that word dozens of times, CNN fake host Don Lemon responded “nobody said that about the President” last night when a guest challenged him for calling the President “crazy” and “unhinged.”  Because, after all, this is CNN.
  • They’re like a modern-day Martin and Lewis, only without the talent. – During that same segment, both Lemon and fellow CNN fake host Brian Stelter repeatedly claimed that Ronald Reagan suffered from Alzheimer’s disease during the second term of his presidency, a complete lie make up by former Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly in a recent book.  That lie has been thoroughly debunked by Reagan’s doctors – who did not diagnose the ex-President with the disease until 1994, five years after he had left office – and dozens of Reagan’s colleagues.  But Lemon and Stelter did what CNN’s fake hosts do when caught in lies, and repeated it over and over and over again.
  • Hey, if he can lie about dead guys, he can lie about live ones too. – Perhaps that skill for making up lies about long-dead American figures that fill best-selling books is why CNN’s honchos are reportedly negotiating to bring O’Reilly in as a fake host for their own network.  They obviously have an eye for appropriate CNN fake talent.
  • But lying, vindictive fake journalists are not limited to CNN.  Wall Street Journal Editor Gerard Baker found that out the  hard way on Wednesday.  Having grown weary of seeing his own reporters exhibit an anti-Trump bias and disregard for truth everyone is used to seeing from the NYTimes and WaPo, Baker lectured his staff to “stick to the facts” when reporting on the President and his administration. Before he could say Trump Derangement Syndrome, Baker found that his personal emails had been leaked to the public.  This behavior is obviously an epidemic within the journalistic profession, not something that is limited to employment at specific outlets.
  • And the lying at media outlets is not limited to fake journalists. – ESPN President John Skipper is so damn stupid that he actually decided to defend his moronic, indefensible decision to deny play-by-play guy Robert Lee the chance to call a University of Virginia football game because his name is, well, Robert Lee.  Skipper issued a statement on Wednesday in which he now claims the person who initiated discussion about the assignment was Mr. Lee himself, a claim that is patently unbelievable.  Mr. Lee, who is an Asian American who will never in his life be mistaken as a descendant of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, isn’t commenting on the matter.  If a fish rots from the head down, ESPN is well and truly rotted.
  • So, you’re saying the truth hurts… – The NYTimes published a story in its Thursday edition headlined “Trump, Calling Journalists ‘Sick People’, Puts Media On Edge.”  Given that only a ‘sick person’ would write such a headline, pen the article underneath it, put it on Page 1 and call it “news,” it appears President Trump is onto something.  You keep hoping that these sick people in the journalist “profession” might eventually take a step back and engage in a little group introspection.  But self-awareness is never a strong point in “sick people.”
  • Bartender, I’ll have whatever those 5% are drinking, and make it a double. – A new Rasmussen survey reveals that 47% of likely voters believe that “when reporters write or talk about President Trump, they are trying to block the president from passing his agenda. Forty-one percent think members of the media are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner, while 5 percent feel they are trying to help Trump pass his agenda.”  Proving, of course, that 41% of likely voters are hopeless nitwits.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
