9-11 The Infamy Wears Off

It is that important national day of 9-11, once again, with all that it entangles. I find myself still in a constant state of mourning for all the families and great loss of that day, 18 years ago today — feeling more like it’s been 18 months. The kind of loss so big that it always leaves a lump in my throat.

But now, on this day, I am also in mourning for something else. I mourn the loss of CNN, too. Yes, you heard me right, grief not grievance.

I remember back in the early 90’s when CNN was a fledgling news channel as it covered the first Iraq war, Dessert Storm. I recall C-130 Hercules transport planes flying non-stop overhead 24 hours a day in a perpetual pattern. I was told that’s what they were.

For the up to date information, you could turn to CNN as a source for news. Wolf Blitzer was on location there somewhere reporting what was going on. It was called the first televised war — even if that was a distortion. CNN was one voice in a vacuum demanding real-time information. We needed to know what was happening in a country finding its war and defensive posture. CNN was there. Maybe reports were not complete or up to the second but it is all we had. In fact, before it started we were well aware of circumstances via media reports. No internet to rely on either.

Contrast that with the menu of cable news we have now, with Internet and social media compliments. It’s almost hard to imagine that CNN was so prominent of a news source then. But those days are gone, and so is CNN as a credible news source.

So today I am mourning that loss as well as 9-11. Back on 9-11, 2001, CNN tried to keep up with a slurry of news. They tried, at least temporarily, to provide unbiased coverage. I have to say, by then, Fox did a better job. Cable went commercial free for days in wall-to-wall coverage. We were mostly a unified nation, even if George Bush was the President. (Not Al Gore)

The bad guys were in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. A new area we didn’t know that much about. So much to do and say. Before a military response, there were debates in Congress and they lined up supporting force. Only a few outliers.

Well, with all the mourning today, there are a number of things regarding 9-11 that can anger me like almost nothing else. Those are: lack of respecting or accepting the attack for what it was, trivializing the sanctity of the day; drawing unreasonable parallels or equating other acts of violence to it; using that historical event to promote other partisan political agendas; giving short shrift to victims of that day that continue to mount; or depriving those victims of dialogue and justice that still evades them all these years later. Or, basically misusing the memory or sacred observance of the day. (even 18 years after)

But CNN manages to do about all those, on the day it is memorialized in 2019. And they did it as a matter of programming, which reveals planning. I could list endless poof and examples but that is more writing than I care to do now. I shouldn’t have to that is obvious. It is not only CNN but the entire left does the same. It is not nit-picking.

So cable news chose to talk about gun control, the impeachment agenda and normal partisan gotcha politics. There are 364 other days in the year and that is not enough, they have to corrupt this one too, like everything else?

No, they could not even be bothered to respect the memory and events of the day. They must defile the day’s memory and its significant importance. Nothing is sacred.

Congratulations, CNN, because today you earned the “enemy of the people” title anew!

Justice Denied

The IG Report on Comey came out. What did we learn? Not much that we didn’t know. It only chronicled most of what was already reported. And DOJ declines to prosecute.

It determined that Comey ‘violated department and FBI policies’.

How are we in a different position than we were before? Comey struts around and we see that nothing has changed. Any wonder people are disgusted?

There are at least several ways for Comey to spin this, while the public gets the middle finger. At least this time it is on AG Barr but what difference does even he make?

So we have eighty pages along with a DOJ statement that it will do nothing about it. Once again, do we even have a justice system in America? The answer is not for some people.

I think the worst part will be Comey’s gloating.

I read between the lines that the IG did what he had to do to assuage the questions. Case dismissed, I guess. The lesson is if you are in the right position, you can do what he did and have no accountability for it. The only speck of justice was him getting fired, But in return for that we got the ballyhooed Mueller Report. Is that a fair trade, is that justice?

Sure this whole thing may dog Comey into the future but aside from that we ended up with a goose egg. Sounds and looks just like Hillary Clinton’s ordeal. So what does violated department and FBI policies really mean? Not much!

Give Me A Break

Give me a freaking break is one of my favorite lines I repeat to myself lately. No one hears me. It just flows out of my mouth more frequently than any other phrase. There are hosts of reasons for it.

The main one is outrage, mostly at Democrat talking points or narratives. It seems almost every time you turn on the TV news or read something, there is that reaction in there. Someone is trying to con someone or twists something completely wrong. Show me any subject and I’ll have a “give me a break” moment somewhere about it.

Why is partly the way politics has become. And in part because of how low down the ladder we have gotten, or in many cases how backwards everything now is.

Judging by what I see on Twitter and media, I’d say a lot of people probably think the same thing and feel the same way. I also think most people see what is going on and understand it. They wouldn’t need anyone to explain it to them because they know what this movie is about and where it is going. In short, they are not dummies.

Now the media might think people are dumb, that they can spoon feed people along to believe what they want about issues. Whoa, do they underestimate the knowledge of regular informed people? Maybe at one time, years ago, they could get away with that but not today. I see it in focus groups and in conversations on social media. They’re in no mood to be bullied around on politics either. They know too much and have too much experience to be duped. All that said, those are not everyone.

Now I say this because these are the parameters for my conclusions. Others, like media, have different parameters that lead them to believe people are impressionable and pliable on their central basic opinions, based on information and narratives they selectively curate to give them. The media may be right about some percentage of voters on the Left. But I know that theory does not hold up on the conservative right. Here on the right people have preformed opinions for a reason.

 

Another idea I have given lots of thought to is conspiracy theories in general and people that hold them. I have concluded some people prefer to dabble in them. And we have had a lot of reason these days to give rise to conspiracies. Maybe they’re trendy and cool? The JFK thing, while decades old, is still a viable high water mark.

But for the last several years, there is another big one on the horizon. The moon landing. I might have been surprised at hearing that one many years ago. But it has a following. Of course there is now the 911 conspiracies, too. So there are many of them and they range from environment to government. But I have noticed a trend that for some people, if they carry one conspiracy they likely have several.

Now we saw the media for 2 and a half years promote the Russia Trump collusion conspiracy with little to base it on. And that there was no push back on it, even from some media, was astounding. But these are the same media people who lectured us about anything we said about Obama for the previous eight years that we were crazy. Actually, the truth was much crazier than fiction. Now it turns out some of those conspiracies were not so crazy after all. They have now been validated by the facts.

Suffice it to say that if you traveled off of the central narratives the media was carrying in the Obama years, you were labeled a conspiracy nut. It was their enforcement mechanism to try to coral people on their main narrative — constructed also in tandem with the White House and West Wing. They, the media, didn’t mind doing it either. They were as heavily invested in creating the narrative as the Obama administration was. But anyone who ventured outside that narrative was the enemy, and they usually let you know it, using all the tools of the mainstream media.

You were mocked, ridiculed, ostracized and marginalized, attacked, humiliated, ruined, and robbed of your good reputation and character. In other words, you were destroyed if you were not on their bandwagon of misinformation. To call that a conspiracy theory was, well, Orwellian. It was 1984-ish. To think in terms of questioning Obama or their carefully crafted narrative was sedition and treasonous. It was as if we completely lost the press. And we did, though it was right from the beginning.

I don’t know if conspiracies represent a threat, given the amount of people that buy into them? But the moon one sort of stunned me. It sneaked up over the last 20 years. If it is cool or whatever that still puzzles me. Though now the left has demonstrated the real danger of a conspiracy with the Russia thing. They’ve shown how you can push a narrative whether it is believable or not. And they showed what mainstreaming conspiracy theories looks like.

You know, it is normally those on the margins who buy into a conspiracy. Now I am back to thinking about what the real point of them is. This Russia one was a matter of convenience and extreme importance, cooked up for convenience and served to masses as established fact. (Intelligence agencies like CIA know how to do that) If it is possible to push a fake narrative until it is mainstream, then what about skeptics who don’t believe in it?. Those who require proof or evidence… or doesn’t that even matter anymore?

Can a conspiracy theory be totally false, yet who cares that it is not true? And what would it take to rupture that huge conspiracy? It went on for over 2 and half years and still goes on. We are in a whole new realm. The Moon landing might have been an achievement for conspiracies but we have gone way past the dark side of the moon now.

Maybe the only point that matters is who believes in it and who doesn’t? To say nothing about the scenario of media and government teaming up on a conspiracy theory.

You can now call me conspiratorial but that is where we are at now. Who exactly believes in it? You would have been considered a wacko-bird for saying Obama was not born in America. But if you want to think the President is a Russian agent, then you would be welcomed by mainstream media and elites alike. It might help your career.

Strange how this conspiracy thing really works, isn’t it? In fact, lets go out of our way to avoid all the evidence to the contrary. And let’s go way out to block real facts and truth as it comes out. No need for that! Which one will write history? I think I know.

Susan Rice Steps In It

Let me rephrase that: Susan Rice has become a victim of Obama Leftology

(I should define Leftology as the radical politics rampant today, most exemplified by Obama’s anti-American rhetoric.)

A few weeks ago, former National Security Advisor and Ambassador under Obama, Susan Rice, had a rival exchange on Twitter with a Chinese diplomat. It proved revealing.

It showed how the Chinese argue and critique America with the same rhetoric they see in leftsrtream press and media in the US. We have long been saying Leftists only provide fodder to America’s critics and enemies.

He (Diplomat-apologist-defender of China, Lijian Zhao) tried to unload that rhetorical hubris at Susan Rice. She seemed baffled by it, but I don’t know why she would be?

That is how leftists themselves argue. Racist accusations – should we say pleasantries – were exchanged between them. Then Rice dropped the line that ‘he should be sent back’ or recalled to China. What Rice didn’t know is he was not based in DC but in Pakistan.

That doesn’t really matter for the purposes of argument. Rice was stirred. She was trying to talk about humanitarian woes of Musllim Uighurs held in northern China. He rattled off a list of conditions in US, including DC. His tweets have since been deleted.

My guess is she didn’t realize that all this division, escalated under Obama, and constant liberal media, just fed his nasty response on our country. They are only taking the press’s critique and hurling it back at America. She should have been better prepared for that.

Rice shifted, after calling him a racist, to address the Chinese Ambassador: “I expect better of you and your team. Please do the right thing and send him home.”

But it did demonstrate Rice’s abilities and reactionary Leftist rhetoric.
She is out hawking a new book. And as Forbes said regarding social media:

Tangent: Although Twitter, like other Western social media platforms, is banned in China, diplomats use the platform abroad and have amassed some large followings as a result. Zhao, for example, gained over 190,000 followers over the three years he’s had a Twitter account.

See: https://thehill.com/policy/international/453098-susan-rice-chinese-diplomat-a-racist-disgrace
And: https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2019/07/15/ex-national-security-adviser-rice-calls-chinese-diplomat-racist-for-tirade/#4397ecc45dbe

Besides Rice and race, China is a much larger concern for discussion. Certainly much broader and more important than the Uighurs issue. But that’s all Leftinista’s care about.

It spans Hong Kong, the China Sea and Taiwan, as well as all the economic disparities. Though Rice touches none of that, probably as a matter of choice. Obama’s administration didn’t touch the major issues with China in eight years. Why would she start now?

After all, Obama gave us the national policy of Omission (among others). He ignored the biggest and most dangerous threats to America, while placating his apologist base of anti-American zealots — both political and religious.

Instead, he lent his voice to give aid and comfort to enemies of America. That it now comes full circle in Susan Rice’s tweets is ironic. Rice and Obama demonstrated incompetence in government for eight years, now she illustrates it on Twitter just in case we forgot!

Memorable Lines

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” Those were the days, weren’t they?

“Not Even A Smidgen Of Corruption” in the IRS targeting operation.

No such thing as “rigged elections” in the US. Don’t worry about that.

Or in Obama’s own words: [skip to 2:24 mark]

Keep in mind Obama gave that Rose Garden Denial in mid October, 2016. At which time the FBI, Steele and Fusion GPS had already been hard at work, under the guise of counterintelligence investigation, meddling up to their necks in the election.

At that point they were well into creating their insurance policy. And where National Security Adviser Susan Rice handled unmasking at Obama’s White House.

Monitoring had already been issued on Trump campaign associates, including Flynn and Manafort, Page, Papadopoulos. Page alone had 4 FISA warrants prying into him. Steele was already working on his dossier — paid for by Hillary’s campaign — then hand delivered back to the FBI later, on December, 9. by McCain.

Yes, their “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation was fully under way as Obama gave that sharp, deceptively smirky denial in the Rose Garden. As if no one knew or would know what was going on in the bowels of Obama’s administration. He had to know it all.

Only months before, Hillary had been cleared in Servergate by James Comey. After which those resources immediately shifted to investigate the Trump campaign.

In any event, the no-scandal Obama struck again. But of course now Democrats don’t mind calling it a rigged election. The denial runs deep.

“Betraying those basic American traditions?”…. just soak that in.

See, Say, Pile On The Blame

We’ve now heard Trump blamed for almost everything since he took office, and even for things before he took office like Russia election meddling. To accept some part of it all would be virtually impossible for one man to accomplish. It strains any credulity.

They tried this with Bush and they never did it to Obama. But now they took it to such staggering heights that everything by default is Trump’s fault, going back 8 years.

It makes me wonder what the Left would do without their Scapegoat in Chief? This could be dismissed if it were from the fringes of the Left, but it isn’t. The blame fest has come from lamestream media. It comes from top tiers of the Democrat party and all their candidates, too. Is there a Democrat running who hasn’t blamed Trump for everything?

I am going to leave this right here, though in the hands of our enemies that is a dangerous tool for them to have access to. As if that has not occurred to the Left how it could be used? But they probably think anything bad that comes from their blame campaign can also be blamed on Trump – the more the better. They don’t care about the damage.

Surely shady people in dark places are fascinated by this playing out on a public stage, in this reactional way. And it has been very public. It encourages others, like even the Mayor of London, to chime in. He has his own low approval turmoils but that doesn’t stop him from lashing out in defiance at Trump. For what, when did Trump do anything to him?

No, that is beside the point. It seems to be open season. Get into any trouble or political problems, just blame Trump to score political points. Then use them, save them, collect and trade them with others; blame Trump has become the new currency. Even an international one. It attracts support and is used to raise money, and spent like capital.

About the only thing coming even close to this phenomena is the blame Mitch McConnell campaign. The Left is having a field day tying Mitch’s name to every problem and issue, from Russia to the latest shootings. The left cleverly (I shouldn’t call it clever) attaches cute hashtags to every event using Mitch. Fill in the blank so they can get it trending.

This creates another new phenomena in the social media age for trolls, Leftists, or hashtag architects. Their personal net-value at a given time — politically and socially — is only determined by what is trending on Twitter. These titans of social media are hashtag warriors, radicalized with whatever groups of others they are connected.

Against these blue waves of fascism stands one man, armed with his Twitter account. Instead of president, I’ll call Trump the Pope of Twitter. Not every foe of Trump is worthy of his Twitter arsenal, but when they are singled out they feel the sting of social media themselves. Their fifteen minuets of fame turns into fifteen minutes of flames.

Many of them can’t take the pressure or heat. Some of them have a hard time going back into the hole they came out of after the fact. It is the equalizer. Hashtag that.

Some of those hashtag warriors would accuse Trump of weaponizing Twitter or social media. But no, that is exactly what they’ve done. Trump is only engaging on their terms. They politicize and weaponize every platform they touch. It is the nature of radicals. It is who they are. But they cry when the social media winds are not in their favor.

Democrats’ yellow brick road to tyranny

My suggestion to Democrats would be come back to reality. But I don’t expect that happening anytime soon. They’ve taken decades getting here.

I do wonder though why every day they are just out to prove that is not possible? It is not bad alone to have the Democrat party, but as a collective it is evil in what they do.

Sadly, you cannot attribute the same characteristics of a person to a party. That would be a mistake. But that is exactly what many on the Left try to do to Republicans. You know how they constantly refer to the party, how Republicans should do this or stop doing that, as if they were appealing to a single person. It is one way they shame Republicans for being out of step with the party.

Well, on the left, party is all they have as a collective. It’s where the power resides. Because individual persons are powerless and/or insignificant. Individuals only have relevant meaning and power within the Democrat party. They really don’t make any bones about that. It is their driving purpose to give power to the voiceless and powerless. And they believe in keeping those people voiceless and powerless without the party.

So, that said, how is it they have those like AOC and Omar doing what they do and no one challenges them? We seem to be struck by the phenomena but it fits entirely with the party. They have taken over the reins of the party apparatus. You can argue about that but it is true. They proved the significant flaw with the party. Someone can rise through leftist tripe and ascend to the head of the party — even without election. It has been proven, first with Bernie and now with the Squad. In fact that was the objective of the Social Democrats’ “Justice Democrats”. Takeover is their objective.

You don’t see the same thing with the Republican party. Oh the Democrats project that theory on Republicans. It is not a reality though, someone doesn’t just hijack the party. They say “but Trump…” No, it’s not the same. If I have to explain it there is a problem.

But it is a simple process on the left. All one has to do is present ideas and incentives to entice people to support him/her. Offer them college tuition, reparations, money or benefits, rights, or power over others for their support. Bernie did not invent the formula though he was only perfecting it to fit his objective. Now he boasts about it.

I saw an interview with Pennsylvania voters that illustrates the hypocrisy of the left. The Democrats were enraged by Trump. They said why doesn’t the party rein him in, he is out of control? They said he needed to be stopped and of course they blamed the Republicans for not standing up. Nazi comparisons came in and they branded him a racist.

But then when the same Democrats were asked about what they thought of AOC and the squad, with their statements and animosity against America, they all agreed AOC’s Squad were a good thing. Two of the four expressed they were refreshing and just what Democrats needed. One black woman said she wants them to shake things up. She said it was what Dems needed. See the difference?

They love Democrats acting that way, but Donald Trump is a racist who needs to be controlled. And they did not have any idea they were contradicting themselves. Nope. They wanted more radical talk on the left while condemning language on the right. In fact, Dems want to impeach Trump for his words.

But as soon as Trump focused on the substance of their radical talk, they were enraged and claimed it has to stop. You see what is going on there. We all do. The truth becomes their number one enemy. And Trump represents the truth in the most dangerous form to them — a threat to their radical existence.

Reality Pill in 2019

Here is a reality pill for you…..

In the 70’s, the Mod Squad was cool. In 2019, the Jihad Squad is just plain evil. See the difference?

Flashback

Back then, the Mod Squad’s objective would be to defeat the Jihad Squad. Good teamwork missions winning. Today, the Jihad Squad is portrayed as victims rather than villains.

But sure, if you follow their story-book narrative, they are here to save us by destroying our country. Where socialists always win, fascists claim to be anti-fascists, and so on.

Requires one hell of a demented belief… even in a post Obama era. Citizens are the enemy.

Except there is a lot more drama with this present crew. You couldn’t write that stuff.

“The white folks greed runs a world in need” narrative, where we all are the racists.

Coming to a Triplex theater near you. Spoiler alert: the plot is always the same.

Crazy Dems Are Not Done

It’s been some time since I wrote a longer satire, but I realized nothing can be stranger fiction than what the left rolls out almost daily. As Spock would say, “fascinating.”

New York is leading the way in many areas. Just in the past six months they have upped the ante in the definition of strange.

Days ago, Cuomo signed the bill to give Trump’s NYS taxes to congress, if they ask for them. Lawmakers and the governor claimed it is not a bill of attainder for only one individual. So it applies to anyone’s tax information, which congress shall ask for.

Then on Tuesday, Cuomo was outraged by what he called a giant breach of personal privacy rights if federal government gets information on illegal aliens from NYS. He declared that cannot be allowed to happen. NY cannot give or share personal information with Immigration or any other department in Washington.

All to protect the personal privacy of illegals.

So the lesson is you only have personal privacy rights if you are an illegal “undocumented” person. But if you are a US citizen, you don’t have a right to privacy. Pound sand.

In Portland Oregon, they allow masked thugs to roam the streets assaulting and threatening people. Antifa too seem to have unwritten protections no one else has.
Cops stand down.

The same people think the federal government should subsidize abortion on demand all the way up to the date of birth. And they declare killing babies a sacred right. Law of the land.

Abolishing entire private business sectors is perfectly acceptable, even encouraged. No, the leftoids demand it. We already know de Blasio said we need to break up any corporation that “does not serve our democracy.”

The court decides the administration cannot ask the simple question “are you a citizen or not” on the census. Leftoids don’t even want us counting citizens or non-citizens. Because if you are not counting non-citizens then likewise you cannot count US citizens either.So we cannot count citizens. Trump criticized it as he had a right to:

“Can anyone really believe that as a great Country, we are not able [to] ask whether or not someone is a Citizen. Only in America!”

But shouldn’t a good explanation be that we need to know the number of US citizens?

Now do you notice any particular pattern or theme here? If you are an illegal, then you have protections no one else has. In fact you have sanctuary cities protecting you, namely because of your illegal status.

The Betsy Ross Flag is now racist. Another defining “mic-drop” moment for the left.

Capping it off, Tom Steyer announced his bid for the presidency. Impeachment is now a certified platform to run for president. How will all the fellow commies compete with that? Stay tuned…they aren’t done yet.

Nationalism vs. Socialism

I believe we have an ultimate grudge-match framed in the coming election. It boils down to terms more than narrative. The lefts’ narratives are amusing but the terms are deadly.

The terms are simple. Nationalism vs, Socialism. What could be a greater feud than that?

While some people may assert that you can have nationalism with socialism, it is a distorted illusion. Their kind of socialism will have no part in nationalism. It is their enemy. After all, nationalism is what they rail against and what drives the left.

Except when Obama was president, then they had a faux nationalism. It was really socialism disguised as fake nationalism. But it was as phony as a three dollar bill. They only used it to sell their socialism. Because at least then socialism was not out of the closet. They had to pretend socialism was not what they wanted. They created a sense of nationalism.

Now, any pretense is long gone about not wanting socialism. It is all the rage, socialists are kool. Bernie just ushered in the left’s real passion, Democrats want socialism. And when do they want it? Now. Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism.

To a person, every one of the Democrat candidates did follow him. They all compete for who can be a pure socialist. They realize there is no better way to buy votes than promising free stuff. And no better way to bring down America than giving free stuff to everyone, even illegals. It breaks your will and breaks the government’s budget.

The Left has apparently decided something else they now like almost as much. Executive power and executive orders. That is what it will take to enact most of their pipe dreams.

You know the rule of the left: never let democracy get in the way of socialism schemes. If people don’t like it, then find a way around them. If it can’t pass in law, then find a way using fiat law. Or find a judge to enact exactly what you want. Create such a struggle between branches or the people that they cannot say no. Make it seem inevitable.

But nationalism, there really is nothing conspiratorial about that. And you cannot fool the people about what is real nationalism. They know the difference.

By the way, Happy Fourth of July!

Because Trump Is President

Because Trump is president the world has changed, conditions and laws have changed. Yes, the seas have risen dramatically too, despite Obama beating them down to size. In fact, everything has changed and nothing will ever, ever be the same. And not for the better. (cue the crying soundtrack) This is the narrative of the Democrat, progressive Left.

That narrative should have gotten old even for them over two and half years but it hasn’t. The idea is that Trump is so unconventional, dare I say radical, everything must change because of their determination. So that means he is the default excuse for whatever they feel like doing. Investigate his finances, his bank accounts, his personal relationships and family, his entire business career and everyone or everything in it. Open season.

And while we are at it, let’s just have a never-ending investigation of Trump — even though they prove they cannot do anything else of value. That is all justified. But when there is a problem with the narrative or they get caught dirty in their festival of hatred, just whip out the old blame Trump card. Guaranteed to work every time.

Where have you ever seen such a travesty where in an obsession to villainize somebody they can turn around and blame the person for that injustice they are inflicting on him? Well, certainly not on a national level like this before. Isn’t it way too much? No.

Their narrative sort of reveals the real story, doesn’t it?

Bernie the Hale-Bopp reject

Meet the guy the Hale-Bopp comet left behind….

Sure Bernie, just listen to his sales pitch.

The Heaven’s Gate cult — now there was a case study for “human solidarity.”

But they had nothing on old Bern. Bernie’s Gate anyone?

Dangerous Has No Parallel: war by other means

Democrats (or progressives) have bequeathed us the most dangerous times. There are hardly any parallels. But if you did mention any, everyone would scramble to talk about that other time not this one.

It is a direct result of what Democrats have done and continue to do. We are careening toward a space that none of us should want to go. Yet Democrats are full speed ahead.

Two things serve as illustrations. The first is a complete reversal from the talk in 2016. When Republicans had an unprecedented array of candidates, we heard a drumbeat that no one could beat Hillary Clinton. They even had Bernie on the same par.

Until they did get a bright idea saying that, according to polls, the only guy who could beat Hillary and presumably Bernie was John Kasich. They told us he alone had the best chance of winning in 2016, even if he could not manage to win the primary.

How times change. Now in 2020, all the polls suspiciously show every top candidate on the left beating Trump. Is that a laugh? And coincidentally, the top Democrats have a 9 or 10 point lead. Where have I heard that before?

I think the left needs a different calculus though. Notice how they rank Democrats with Biden at the top and down the list — and he has a large lead over others. I’d like to see a completely different ranking considering the times. Why not rank them by threat level or who is the most dangerous? That would be useful.

For instance, one of their candidates is Inslee. Sure he is not one of the top contenders but he certainly has a dangerous factor. He is so green he can’t see straight and wants to abolish coal. Basically he wants the biggest war on energy we have seen yet. If it destroys America, they don’t care as long as they did it “green” it would be something to be proud of. Place your bets.

Bernie is a complete danger to everything else that makes America work. We don’t know exactly how he could and would do any of it. That leaves executive order as his only means. But he does have enough of a commie, socialist base to make him dangerous.

Biden, well, he is no stranger to selling out America. And he never had a foreign policy that worked. He could be a gift to China or N. Korea. And you know about their deal with Iran. Plus he would bring back all the same actors as we just got rid of in there. And Deep State would be rejuvenated. The myth that he has some understanding with blue collar working people is hilarious. Yet the media have sold that lie long enough.

The whole purpose of guys like Joe or the others is that they don’t want a great economy. Their goal is the opposite. And they want everyone begging at the door of federal government. Biden being some kind of uniter? Well that’s just not how any of this works.

Elizabeth Warren, if she doesn’t scare the hell out of every sane person, I don’t know what would. In fact, that is her whole gig, threats and intimidation. She wants everyone subservient to all-powerful government. That would be the best setup for pure socialism you could ask for.

Now Democrats have moved on again in their wish list of agenda items. Next up, let’s talk about reparations. While they are all out on the campaign trail talking about unity and healing divisions, they are all pushing the reparations train now. Nothing more unifying than that. A bloody civil war was not enough for these people.

How about reparations for the most racist institution in the last century, the DNC? It was actually built on racism.

If those primers aren’t enough to get your danger juices flowing, then there are Dems’ daily positions and reactions to hard current events as they happen, to give you a glimpse into their collective mindset. There is always the tried and true hate America plank of the party. The anti-American wing has eaten the entire party.

Shout out to the borderless and lawless agenda here. But it is not some small marginal group of the far left anymore. So the calls to abolish ICE weren’t enough of a clue? How about the cop killers that get radio silence from the party? Better yet, undermine any remaining control of the border – or its legal controlling authority. Not just against the wall, they are against any enforcement of our borders or our laws. And they take to the streets on a moments notice to protest our enforcement of law and order. Heck, they are organized in such a way as to facilitate and encourage illegal immigration. And they make no bones about the fact that they give illegals preference over law-abiding American citizens.

How about those sanctuary cities? Oh, I’m sorry, did I mean sanctuary states now? The main purpose of Democrats, more and more these days, seems to be to facilitate crime waves and defend the criminals and those who harbor them. Then blame any cause of it on bad America.

Might as go all the way, while they are at it. Onward to late term abortions right up to the delivery date. Let’s even put that up for grabs, just in case you did not avail yourself of killing the baby at first chance, try try again. Who can say no to that agenda anymore? Who could draw arbitrary lines on institutionalized baby killing?

Even that is not quite enough to quench the appetite for evil. What they need to do is get rid of the Hyde Amendment. There cannot be any room for a wall in our government against directly subsidizing killing babies. Better still; just remind us all that abortion is a pillar of our economy. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Hadn’t seen enough of this anti-American sideshow yet? Well there is great news for you, then. How about a basic war on the bill of rights? How about a war on freedom and religious speech? What are progressive values without that? It’s a great fundraiser too. That would eliminate half the problems in the country if they could just tear out the heart of freedom. The rest of the agenda would come a lot easier.

And take out the 2nd Amendment.

While they are all for resistance to this president, administration and legitimate election results; they are all about limiting any resistance to their agenda by any means necessary. Fill in the blanks there too numerous to mention. Just say nothing is off the table.

Where have all the media gone?

Oh, when will they ever learn? More lies, more coverup, more scandals.

A new story explodes that media no doubt has zero interest in reporting. If they do, it will need expert Obamafiles’ spin on it for them. You know how Obama never knew anything until it appeared in the paper. In this case, it was sure not to show up there.

What Did Obama Know About Hezbollah’s Bomb Plot in London?

by Brian Cates — June 14, 2019 | Epoch Times

Commentary

President Donald Trump’s long-anticipated visit to Europe during the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion has now come and gone. He arrived in the United Kingdom on June 3 and departed for Ireland on June 5 before hopping across the channel for the official D-Day ceremonies in France on June 6.

What I would like to draw attention to is what occurred immediately prior to Trump’s arrival in the UK, and what subsequently happened immediately after his departure.

Just prior to Trump’s visit, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced that she would be resigning. She made this announcement on May 24 and stated that June 7 would be her last day in office. Literally one of the last things she would do as Prime Minister would be meeting with Trump.

Following Trump’s departure from Europe, it was suddenly revealed in the UK press that a massive terrorist bomb plot in London by the Iran-linked terror group, Hezbollah, had been foiled several years ago and that authorities had deliberately hidden this plot from the public.

It was in the fall of 2015 that British intelligence agency MI5 discovered a cell of Hezbollah terrorists operating in Northwest London. According to reporting by The Telegraph, the group had amassed a stockpile of more than three metric tons of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer compound that is a popular key component in homemade bombs.

The Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 by domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh, in which he killed 168 people while causing extensive damage to the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, involved two tons of ammonium nitrate. This Hezbollah terror cell had compiled three tons at the time they were caught. So let’s make this crystal clear: this was not going to be any kind of small-scale attack on London. …/

Okay, but who cares about why May stepped down when what Obama did making the Iran deal buried all the real information, and intelligence, that we had at the time?

Another feather in his no-scandal legacy — to be hidden or deleted in his Lie-Barry.

Will there be any probe into this? Probably not. Talk about conspiracy and cover up!

Defense In Motion

Over a week ago, I was prepared to say I had given up on even the remotest idea of Hillary ever being held accountable. It seemed the one thing we can count on today beside taxes is Hillary walking away. Not much public confidence in justice out there.

Then came word that Durham’s office was staffing up and already conducting interviews. Then came DOJ’s announcement that Barr was doing a broad investigation. (I do like the term broad in there) And he said he was examining CIA. All right then.

So now I see a little hope in an otherwise bleak tunnel. What is there to base that hope on? I have no answer, just asking. I guess we have to hang on for the long ride, again.

Along comes the duck and cover media. George Stephanhoopla does an interview with Trump. He asks the only thing they care about — the whole reason for the interview. Suppose someone from a foreign government offers you information , would you (A)take it or (B)call FBI? So only two choices? Well, Trump said maybe you do both. Immediately the buzzers declare “wrong answer.”

Media also claims that type of information pedaling can influence elections and “undermines our democracy.” Then can we have any country left after what Hillary did? We know the details of what she did, no need to dredge through all that.

I’ll be darned, a whole interview to get that plus a new AF-1 design? But that’s all the press needed. It happens to be the same time Donald Trump Jr is speaking to the Senate, again, on that very subject. That’s not the only coincidence for George’s question of the year.

We can see a foundation forming for the defense of Hillary “the rotten” Clinton. That question is the critical predicate of it. Have everyone agree taking information is bad, calling FBI is the only answer. Then they will say that is what Hillary’s campaign did.

That defense is almost laughable after everything she did. But it is supposed to get her off the treasonous hook. (taking foreign information is treason) It is more than a defense for Hillary; it’s one for intelligence and everyone else too. So when they get nailed, they can claim to be working or cooperating with FBI, intelligence and the investigation. Media will then call them all heroes not traitors. Yep, that’s their defense coming down the pike.

Actually, George Stephanopoulos’ interview could be labeled opposition research. Though at what point in all this does press’s information pedaling become treasonous?

A Note To Dems’ Script Writers

One thing stuck in my craw for the duration of the Washingtonian malfeasance is a simple phrase all too common now. Widely and wildly misused. It is more a defense and deflection of the Swamp than an indictment of it.

That phrase is some form of: “we should not criminalize politics” or our political process. Alan Dershowitz popularized it but many used it. It’s now an institutional euphemism.

The original intended beneficiary of the phrase was foremost to be Hillary Clinton. But it was applied in defending Obama too. It may now legitimately be used defending Trump. Though those three instances are apples and oranges. True, they try to criminalize everything Trump does. It has been normalized. Let’s deal with Hillary and Obama.

I resent something called what it is not. In Hillary’s case, it is as a complete misdescription of events. Hillary started her job as Secretary of State in 2009, after lying about creating a wall between the Foundation with her name on it. That conflict was to be expunged, but never was. She knew it, Bill knew it, her top advisors knew it. All were aware how she would use the job as Sec of State. That was the whole point in her taking the job.

She engaged in criminal conduct from the onset.

The crux is even deeper. She began by setting up an illegal server from the start. She never used a State email. Her advisors knew it. She did it to circumvent FOIA and public accountability. The whole purpose by design was to obstruct justice. That was her goal.

The act came first, meaning her job duties were subordinate to political considerations. However, her actions were criminal from the beginning. She was not compliant with the law from the git-go.

Now we are lectured that we the people should not criminalize our political process. Really?

State was politicized too, not just by her. Obama deliberately did not install an Inspector General at State for Hillary. It only had an existing, “acting” temporary (placeholder) office. Politicized and weaponized as was nearly every other department, like Justice.

We now know that in the 2016 campaign, Hillary was taking money from foreign sources. We also know what she was doing with Russians, Perkins Coie, Fusion GPS, Crowd Strike, Ukrainians, an agent of a foreign government, creating a dossier, pedaling it to our intelligence community and co-opting our executive branch. Using existing politicization and further weaponizing intelligence, collaborating with Obama and his administration.

Does all that sound like legitimate, legal campaign conduct — which is being criminalized?

So the point is Hillary and Obama’s criminal deeds criminalized our political process. But we are criminalizing politics by wanting accountability? Not to forget how they weaponized government against the people, interfered with elections and later staged a coup.

But the real source of the whole problem was that Trump beat Hillary in her dirty, illegal game — politics. He was also running against an abuse of power and obstruction of justice. They are now trying to criminalize the very politics that beat them.

Don’t cry to me about people criminalizing routine political conduct and election process. None of Democrats’ was routine. People who stage coups have no credibility.

LEAKED: Obama Team Kept List of Muslims For Top Jobs, Excluded Non-Muslims

Justin Caruso | 10/24/2016 | The Daily Caller

The newest batch of John Podesta’s hacked emails released by Wikileaks shows Obama’s transition team kept lists of Muslim and Asian candidates for jobs in the administration.

According to an email chain from 2008, John Podesta received lists of exclusively Muslims and Asians to be considered for jobs in the Obama administration. The email chain revealed that in this process, Middle Eastern Christians were purposefully excluded, or set aside in a separate list, with an aide writing,

In the candidates for top jobs, I excluded those with some Arab American background but who are not Muslim (e.g., George Mitchell). Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian).

Also notable, there was concern that some of the Muslims suggested would not survive media scrutiny, with one aide writing, “High-profile Muslim Americans tend to be the subject of a fair amount of blogger criticism, and so the individuals on this list would need to be ESPECIALLY carefully vetted.”

She continues, “I suspect some of the people I list would not survive such a vet — but I do personally know, at least in part, virtually all of the candidates in the 1st two categories (but I know very few of those listed for outside boards/commissions).”

Within the lists themselves, candidates were further broken down, with every candidate labeled by their nationality and sometimes race.

This follows a pattern of the Obama Administration using race and religion to determine hiring, with other leaked emails showing potential political appointees being labeled with an F for female, B for black, H for Hispanic, and M for Muslim.

Another Wikileaks release showed the Obama transition team keeping extensive lists of non-white candidates for administration posts.

https://dailycaller.com/2016/10/24/leaked-obama-team-kept-list-of-muslims-for-top-jobs-excluded-non-muslims/

So any surprise there? Only that they were so coordinated about doing it. Can anyone say litmus test? In other words, Article VI, no religious test. In this case, it was completely religious. Discrimination was the process. The left had no problem with that.

But then the results were obvious to everyone, or it should have been.

It only makes me wonder, will someone someday have the gonads to write the book on what Obama did flagrantly from the beginning to end? I kind of doubt it but like to hope so. It was as bad as we thought and then even worse. Yet it needs to be memorialized.

Any questions? All right then!

Season Of Treason

Calling all traitors, cleanup in isle one. It seems we have an endless coup in front of us, but only the dumbest among us don’t see it. It was the coup that never had an end.

By now, the mask is off that most Democrats and the media know what has gone on and continues, they just continue to try to deny it exists. But that is getting harder and harder each day. Denial requires more and more effort as it goes, so that to accept their bullshit rationalization now would ‘require the willing suspension of disbelief.’

You could probably write a dozen titles and all would be correct, like “traitors among us.” “It’s high time for a coup” works too. “Who needs elections when you have the power of a coup?” Or “whatever happened… doesn’t matter.” See what I mean? The solution:

Traitors Must Be Prosecuted To Stop The Coup

Cliff Nichols |Jun 02, 2019 | Townhall

Mueller’s press conference this week should be giving the president a good reason to be asking, how long can his administration afford to allow this coup d’ état to continue before a quorum of public opinion takes hold in this country that will wrongfully compel him by force of some unlawful process, if not arms, to be removed from office?

Undeniably, America is in the midst of a civil war. The only things not yet flying are the bullets.

Liberals in Congress are demanding our president be impeached for undefined offenses. Liberal federal judges are letting themselves be used to thwart his policies at every turn. A complicit liberal media, with the help of Hollywood, is doing its very best to enable the president’s enemies to foment in the public’s mind — without evidence — that he is a liar, a cheat and a criminal who must be removed from office. And Mueller’s press conference brought this tempest to an even greater boil than when the president was first elected over two years ago.

Why?

For one reason, because the president has survived long enough to expose a coup attempted by former high-ranking officials within our government and complicit members of the media to bring him down. Independent investigations have revealed they took affirmative actions in furtherance of a conspiracy to unlawfully — i.e., undemocratically — overthrow his administration, which is a crime.

In a word, they committed treason.

In summary, these liberal elitists felt they knew better what’s good for America than did the millions of people who elected the president. And so to thwart him and them, the Clintons and the DNC “allegedly” paid to create a false dossier that not only slandered the president but then was used by Hillary’s sympathizers to fraudulently legitimize their spying on his campaign before the election and to undermine his administration ever since.

The president’s problem now — as revealed by Mueller — is that they are still trying to pull off the coup they started before he was even elected. …./

The key thing to remember is that it never ended, and the cover up continues while their mission continues. (take that Tricky Dick!) Now all aboard their sedition train.

Mueller’s Counterpoint

What did Mueller say this infamous day, May 29, 2019? I’ll take the liberty to sum it up into one simple, central core and a glaring thesis.

Mueller knew from the beginning, considering the established rules and regulations surrounding it, that the purpose of his investigation was to be used as an impeachment report for a political witch-hunt. Why do I know that?

How could it possibly have been anything but that, given the conditions?

My translation is based on exactly what he said. And Mueller took the job knowing that situation up front, right on the table. Everyone did. It went on as such for the duration.

The saga continues, right on schedule.

No holds Barred: Trump and his troops push for imperial presidency

With his compliant attorney general, the man in the White House is taking aim at the constitutional balance of powers. — [I think they misspelled ‘competent’ AG.]

/….

Congressman Jared Huffman of California said: “It’s a smokescreen, obviously an attempt to change the subject like everything else he does. I almost don’t want to dignify it because it’s so preposterous that any time someone investigates Donald Trump or disagrees with Donald Trump they are being treasonous or they need to be locked up.

“This is a slippery slope to a banana republic if this is where we’re heading. And I think most Americans get that. You just don’t call for your political enemies to be investigated and jailed in the United States,” Huffman said.”

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/19/william-barr-donald-trump-robert-mueller-congress

Imperial what? It doesn’t seem too imperial to me. An Imperial Congress, maybe.

Yet that is exactly what Democrats and the left are doing, and have been doing since even before the election — having their political enemies investigated. Just that we were not to know the depths of this incestuous cabal. Odd to hear British press complaining after allies there were also involved. Pointing the finger back at Trump has gotten a bit old.

And if that were not enough crazy talk for you, consider Nancy Pelosi’s broad smear attack (wrap-up smear) on Trump, saying he “is engaged in a coverup.” She followed that projection by claiming Trump is crying out for his impeachment. If impeachment can swing by the seats of their pants, they even plan to blame Trump for their impeachment scheme.

So, right on cue they are outraged Trump pulled the trigger to declassify documents and have AG Barr, with investigators, look into the real charade and coverup that started the whole cabal. And guess what? It wasn’t Trump that did that!

Last but not least, a congresswoman also said that “we cannot do our job in congress unless we can hold the president accountable.” Accountable for what, their plot and coup?

Now refusing to do their own job in the House, they want to blame that on Trump too.
