What’s The Difference?

Let’s get one thing straight right from the beginning. Republicans are not always the best judge of Democrat candidates. Neither are Christians. Just saying. Think of Obama, Hilary, Biden, or even Jimmiy Carter for that matter. No, I don’t mean all Repubs.

Yes, some Republicans have voted for them all. The reasoning went something like this: “he/she is not that much different from Republicans, and could not be any worse.” In every case they were wrong. But there is no accountability for it. Just “oh well.”

Now I accept Republicans have not always offered the best presidential candidates either. And yes, there were some valid comparisons to be made in some cases. Yes, Republicans don’t offer perfect candidates.Those are valid arguments.

However, because Republicans aren’t perfect is a good reason to vote for a progressive candidate? There’s where they lose me. Things are similarly shaping up in Democrat primaries. Republicans look at them making stunning judgements, to me. They’ve already classified Klobuchar as a moderate. Some of that is being pushed by media too. And people have called Biden a moderate. Okay, do we really have to explain that Biden is no moderate? Neither was Hillary a moderate though some Republicans asserted it.

Right up to date that brings us to Pete Buttigieg. I’ve watched people make knee-jerk judgements that he is not so bad. His education may cover a multitude of flaws to some Republicans. Or his appearance makes them think he seems more traditional.

Others say Pete seems pretty harmless compared to some of the rest, like Kamala Harris or Bernie. There are a whole lot of uninformed opinions out there. Buttigieg’s father was an Antonio Gramsci fan, even heading up an apologetic organization supporting his views. He translated Gramsci’s works into English. Now anyone who has such devout Marxist beliefs, and sympathies, is bound to leave a legacy.

And that is where Pete comes in. So people think he seems moderate? Well, no you cannot find a long voting record to make a case because, after all, he was only a mayor in Indiana. Remember the problem with Obama was not a lengthy record unless you want to count voting present. He didn’t want the controversial votes on his record. And Buttigieg has no voting record to speak of. That makes it easy. But Obama did leave a plenty long trail of breadcrumbs. Not so for Pete. He kept it pretty, well, moderate looking.

Yet another guy from the influential McKinsey & Co leach pit, which s;slithered out Susan Rice or countless others who wound up in government positions. Part of the swamp’s incubation preserve with links to scandals or corruption. Rice was no slouch in that.

Slowly there are things coming out about Pete the squirm-worm. Now he takes a stand that buildings or places need renamed — like Jackson and even Jefferson. Yeah, we are hearing it. He just covers his anger and spew with a smile. Still think he seems moderate? Wait a while. I peg him for the sleeper commie.

The point is don’t trust others’ definitions of Democrat candidates. Don’t let it wear off on you either. It’s hell to wash off. But keep an eye out for sleepers.

Bombshell Report Due

Speaking of two weeks, we are getting pretty near.

‘Bombshell’ report on James Comey coming in two weeks, Joe diGenova says

by Daniel Chaitin | April 25, 2019 —Washington Examiner

A “bombshell” report on former FBI Director James Comey is coming out in two weeks, attorney Joe diGenova said on Wednesday.

He made the declaration during a Fox News panel discussion on alleged government surveillance abuse.

“The Horowitz report is coming out in May or possibly early June,” Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, said. He was referring to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation.

“There’s another report that everyone has forgotten about involving James Comey alone,” diGenova said. “That will be out in two weeks. That report is going to be a bombshell. It is going to open up the investigation on a very high note, and there are going to be criminal referrals in it.”

He did not elaborate on what report he expects out in two weeks and how he came to find out about the timeline for its release.

U.S. Attorney John Huber is conducting an investigation into FBI misconduct.

What that report is, I won’t speculate. The talk about Huber reminds me he is one leftover of Sessions. I hope it is not going to disappoint too. I don’t know. I can’t help wondering that until we see something from him.

But it does seem like Comey and Brennan are increasingly worried. Dems won’t be happy to hear anything but their narrative. Who knows about the timeline?

I Beg Your Pardon

Wouldn’t it be amazing if all these snakes in the Circus of Corruption came back around to asking for a pardon from Trump? Wouldn’t that be special? It would be ironic.

Imagine Comey and McCabe making the case for a pardon?

In fact, that is probably what Democrats would have planned if they won the White House. It would be Pardongate. They could issue them like candy.

All the people who took part in the coup and sedition would be on a list. Democrats could add it to their campaign platform. The convention would not be complete without turning them into heroes.

Of course if they did win, their first order of business would be going after the Trump administration and everyone connected to it. No doubt about that.

I guess that is our choice in 2020, to continue Democrats’ abortion of justice or not.

Whistling Past The People

The Democrats are so crazy now that they don’t know what fate awaits them. And maybe they don’t care either. They’re so captive to hatred they think everyone is.

They’ve worn out the language, impeachment is all that is left. They can’t show that they were bluffing. They want to be taken seriously. So they have guys like Ted Lieu and Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler out to score political points, to do the dirty work.

Boy are they about to score some points. Only they don’t know or understand the people. They’ve been so disconnected from the people so long that they could not know.

These Democrat hacks are all dug in on their partisan turf and they’ve exhausted all their veiled threats and now it is time for action. That is the part the people will pay attention to… the actions. When they pull the trigger, they actually believe all the people will be right there with them, but they won’t be.

See, the people never saw the cause for impeachment or the phony investigations from the beginning. Only Dems never figured that out. They assumed people would follow them.

I’ve heard the callers on CSPAN lines. They aren’t all with the Democrats. And Dems are not making a great case for what they are doing. Only that they have had these scorched earth plans all along and they are determined to carry it out. Tom Steyer’s apostles.

At that point people are going to say, “wait a minute!” They’ll think with all the big problems we have and a broken southern border with a broken Congress that won’t do anything about it; with all our critical issues right now; and “this is what your number one priorities are? Count me out!” Then they will think: “I’m not going to be a party to it and you aren’t going to use my sacred vote to do it.”

Now have I got the people figured or what? I could always be wrong but I really don’t think so. I bet people will see all this as a miscarriage or misapplication of justice, and turn tail saying “this is not our agenda.” They’ll think “we the people actually do have a full agenda we voted for. Where is that, what happened to it?”

I think it is about to get pretty interesting and the people do have a last word. If this is what government wants to spend all their time and our resources on, it is insulting. The people also want to hear the other side of the story. Up until now it has been one sided. And the other side of it has all the juicy real stuff people care about. They want to hear it, and when they do…..this impeachment talk is going to look pretty silly.

Hillary, Obama, Russians and Spying

Actually, it would be much harder to name who Obama did not spy on.

Gateway Pundit has the story here:

HERE IT IS: Complete List of the Many Times Obama Spied on Candidate and President Trump and Numerous Others

Then check the Investors’ Business Daily (IBD) article on a summary of the Clinton ordeal. It is chilling what all went on but now it all seems to be confirmed, and even worse than we thought. “Russian Collusion: It Was Hillary Clinton All Along”

The problem of course always was would there be anybody in the DOJ or FBI willing to give it an honest look? Now with AG Barr there is at least a possibility of investigation.

Before that, no one could put odds on that happening. As IBD explains, it would seem that few in Congress were/are left to track it down. Only IG Horowitz is left to shed some light on it. Basically, Barr and what he can do is the only hope for any kind of justice.

No wonder Democrats and media were screaming when Barr mentioned spying in his testimony. But there can be no doubt it was illegal. Imagine if this was held to be legal?

On top of those bombshells, reporters asked Ben Rhodes about it. He denies knowledge saying there were strict firewalls in place. More like firewalls to prevent anyone finding out. He called investigating the origins of the Russia probe a huge “waste of time.”

Read here for a good laugh. https://pjmedia.com/trending/former-obama-advisor-investigating-origins-of-russia-probe-waste-of-time-they-will-find-nothing/

Just for another chuckle: as Biden opened his presidentiaj run, he said what he is most proud of is that there was not a whisper of scandal in the Obama/Biden administration.

How about a bullhorn?

Demonizing Trump Doesn’t Work

Monica Crowley lays out the law of diminishing returns regarding Trump.

The one lesson Trump’s enemies just can’t understand

By Monica Crowley – – Wednesday, April 24, 2019 | Washington Times
ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There is one lesson from President Nixon that applies not to President Trump, but to his adversaries on the left and in the media. “Always remember,” Nixon said during his 1974 farewell address, “others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.”

Mr. Trump enjoys toying with their hatred, particularly as it’s destroying them instead of destroying him.

In economic theory, the law of diminishing returns refers to the point at which profits or benefits of an endeavor begin to decrease as the resources put into it stay constant or increase.

We are long past that point with regard to the relentless assault on Mr. Trump. The pile-on began the moment he announced his candidacy and continues to this day, resulting not in his ruination but in his success. The more they hit him, the more resilient he becomes and the more voters rally to his cause. It’s not as if the left isn’t aware of this. They witnessed the phenomenon during the campaign and were powerless to stop it.

Now, however, with the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report, we can expect an entirely new level of attacks — and diminishing returns for his opponents.

The world can now see that Mr. Trump was telling the truth all along: Neither he nor anyone associated with him “colluded” with Russia to effect the 2016 election and he did not obstruct justice.

To the contrary, Attorney General William Barr highlighted the unprecedented level of cooperation from Mr. Trump and his team.

Now that Mueller’s Report is out, I can’t feel any relief

Trips down memory lane are not always positive or don’t always end that way.

Now that the report is out, I can’t feel any relief. It should be relief that it is over but it isn’t because it goes on and on. It is meant to continue ad nauseam.

Why did they do an exhaustive investigation on Russia’s election meddling without talking about what Obama did? But they can talk about every detail of what Trump did?

Weeks ago, Comey the persistent talked about “so many questions.After the Report, he says “so many answers.” I think he has it exactly backwards. We knew so much before the report came out. Now that it is published it poses so many questions. The jig is up.

Why haven’t those who committed offenses been brought to justice? Like Brennan, Clapper, Strzok, Glenn Simpson, Steele, Comey, McCabe? And don’t think we forgot about it; what was all the unmasking by Obama officials doing for it all? Where was Loretta Lynch when all this was going on? What about meetings between DOJ officials and Obama in the Oval Office, like on January 5th 2017?

But if you follow mainstream media’s lead now, this report information is all so important. It is alarming. All this should bother you and me. This influence of Russia is so severe that Blumenthal now says our democracy is under siege, still is, and that it is an act of war. And then prizewinner congresswoman Jackie Speier says that it shows we would actually not have Trump as President but for Russia’s actions. Talk about a dramatic stretch.

So in my hypothetical mind, I’m trying to figure out if Russia was that influential and the deciding factor in 2016, then I have a few questions. It represents Russia as winning. Doesn’t it make our democracy fragile? Haven’t you given Russia way too much credit? And if Speier thinks that Russia succeeded, then whom did they beat? Wasn’t the guy who was in the Oval Office responsible for what they did? So why is the blame coming down on an outsider, incoming president?

Now Comey has another seismic revelation about “so many answers.” What are they? How does Trump being pissed off about appointing a Special Counsel answer any questions? Sure he would be mad that they would do that to him. He was only in office for months. What the hell is there really to investigate in the White House if this is about Russia?

When I was much younger, I remember people would wait for the next new phrase or word to be coined so that they could run out and start using it. Well, it seemed like they were just waiting for the next one. You know them all, slang and urban lingo. Using the lingo made one seem popular or cool.

One of the things some of those trendier people would do is travel to another area and use their newly slung slang to others there to see if it was popular, and so it could hopefully be picked up as cool. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. Sometimes people looked at them and said “what did you say?” Language is like a joke, if you have to explain it then it’s a dud and falls flat.

Comey is like one of those guys trying to set a trend. Get everyone to repeat something, whether they know the meaning of it or not. This would prove him hip and popular. He is desperate. He wants to be right even when he’s wrong – a thinker and an artisan.

Seems to me mainstream media is a lot like that too. Just get everyone repeat a bunch of nonsense so it can seem like a popular thought or idea. And that does work many times. Minions repeat the talking points of the Left with amazing clarity and regularity, right to the phraseology. Well, it is almost a dialect.

But then eventually one learns that the language is not really the thing to control, the dialogue is. Whoever controls that wins the game.

When Comey was pondering “so many questions,” he insinuated that there were so many questions to be asked. But not any we didn’t already know the answers to. The only relevant questions left were “why aren’t people in jail and why are these corrupt people still in their top tier jobs?” We wanted to know who was doing this witch hunt “investigation” and why? The who is almost easier than the why.

So many questions.

Other than that, we didn’t want to know about some setup meeting in Trump Tower with a Russian who was collaborating and working with Simpson – months before the election. We weren’t asking what Flynn was doing before or after Trump took office? Those were planted questions. We weren’t hanging on the edge of our seats wondering who spoke to a Russian and exactly what they said, word for word?

We might have long wondered that if all this was going on since 2014, then what did that last president do about it? If he did nothing, why not? What was he waiting for? What was the answer to the probing Russia problem? If all these officials had a degree of certainty what was going on, then what did they do and/or why didn’t they do something? You know, those kind of pertinent questions. And we didn’t need all the drama about the inner workings of Trump’s campaign about what they were doing.

Do you smell the deflection and diversion?

Well, only if this entire thing was a setup from the beginning, aimed at Trump, would we need to know all that. We should have wondered what Obama did to stop it, or why not? We should have wondered what did Obama know and when did we know it? See, so many things just don’t make sense like a language barrier.

A naïve person may wonder why such a barrier exists?

But most of us know, because they want to rearrange our language and thoughts about it. In other words, they want to change our perception of events. Normally that is called revision, only they were trying to do it in real time. Before we could know or understand events as they happened, they wanted to train our thoughts to see them in another way, through an alternative reality. And they wanted us to believe it and not what we were seeing or what we already knew. It does sound a lot like Benghazi too.

See, Obama was already skilled in the art of controlling the dialogue or manipulating events for his benefit. In fact, there was a certain pride in being able to do that. To this day, if you mention Benghazi or Hillary’s servergate, you get the same tired response from the left. “Oh, there were multiple investigations about that and it found nothing.” Nothing? Really? People died and yet there was no problem with it and nothing sinister. With Hillary they say “but you cannot let it go. She was investigated and cleared of any wrong doing.” Right, cleared? Remember how the video caused Benghazi, a spontaneous attack?

Notice what they did in both those cases. They immediately began to try to control the narrative, since narrative is all that matters. They substitute an alternate narrative and spread it far and wide. The saturation point is when someone mentions the event and hoards of people immediately respond with the same promoted answer.

So Comey now says, “so many answers.” Naturally that is what he sees, answers to what happened, when it really gives you none. What we got were alternative sound bites substituted for answers that tell you nothing. But yet they are not done because they tell us they are going to continue this investigation, now in Congress. They call the Mueller Report a “roadmap for Congress”. Was that how it worked for Hillary or Benghazi? Of course not. The investigation was supposed to be the definitive end.

Answers, Comey? McCabe also did his first interview, since his book, on MSNBC. He said the same thing, agreeing that Mueller’s Report was a “roadmap” for congress to use and follow. A roadmap to where? Yes, we know that too. Another answer it provided.

But the real questions still exist, just as they did while they rolled this charade out, but concentrate on their substituted answers. Because the real questions are about them and not Trump. And they are about Obama’s administration.

Well, one can conclude the whole ordeal was used as a coverup, which is still going on, for Obama and Hillary. It was a convenient use of Russia meddling to hang it around Trump and pretend he is the problem, while they wall off an entire warehouse of abuses from the public under Obama’s administration. But this placeholder is wearing very thin. In fact, it is hard to believe they could have kept this entire thing up as long and hard as they have. It is now going into the next election cycle. Of course this Report will also provide opposition material against Trump. But that is what it was all along from the beginning.

Obama found a use for another problem, Russia, to use it against his opponent, and cover up all his other problems. Meanwhile, Obama’s personal records are sealed from public while all Trump’s personal records are to be annexed, and then spread far and wide to the public. Funny how these truth-challenged people don’t care about the real answers.

Open Letter To The Mainstream Media

I write in sympathy to your current predicament. I know you have an extreme lack of credibility and standing with the public. Or maybe you are still in denial? You offend them and they offend you. I know it upsets you.

I feel your pain; but I cannot validate it.

The problem is that it is not Trump’s fault. That must be hard for you to accept, too. Yet it is the truth. Just repeat the words: “our credibility deficit is not Trump’s fault.”

It was not Trump’s fault that before the 2016 election you jumped on the Hillary bandwagon, with no reservations. You were doing her bidding well before the primaries.

When the election did come, by then you had set the perception that she was the winner by all standards and could not lose. Trump had nothing to do with your willful bias. He was not whispering in your ear to give favorable treatment to Hillary, forcing you to do her cleanup and dirty work.

He did not tell you to make things up about him and his supporters just like you all did about Tea Parties. He didn’t choose all your negative coverage of himself and positive coverage for Hillary. That was not in his power or within his influence to do.

He didn’t make you into card-carrying members of the resistance. He didn’t tell you to brand his supporters as racists, bigots, or even domestic terrorists. But you implied they were dumb, uneducated grievance hustlers who were generations out of step with the times. (talk about projection)

We came to the party only to take our part. You came to blacklist us. Sure, you couldn’t quite get the job done, but you expected it to take a toll. To some degree it did. Though you couldn’t defeat or destroy us. After all, you had been trying more subtly to do that for years. But we were not going away. In fact, we were the original resistance. So you fully embraced the banner of resistance after the election. Trump did not make you do that. He only pointed it out. You demurred any criticism because that is the kind of people you are.

We don’t matter. When you ran the daily 24/7 hate Trump media for his first two years, hyping the resistance movement and impeachment, you dug in your heels of sedition. With every leak and anonymous source you could muster, you blazed an historical trail, aligning yourselves with a coup well under way from the first day of Trump’s presidency.

Yes, I can sympathize with your pain and agony of it all. Well, I can because we have felt that prejudice against us from the public for decades. Your part in that campaign against us has not gone unrecognized. We are well aware of it and your attitude against we the people. We know how you feel about the people and flyover country.

We know how you despise the people’s mindset… and their choice.

So when Donald Trump said some members of the mainstream media – not all — were enemies of the people, he was right. We already knew that. You just confirmed it. When you were offended by that comment, it was not our fault. You did it. When you tried to spin yourselves into victims of that remark, it fell on deaf ears because we have always been the real victims of your schemes.

We get to vote, and were determined to vote regardless what you thought of us. See, you get to cast your vote everyday, as the elitists you are. You want to control dialogue and you couldn’t. The conversation went on around you, even factoring in your heavy hand at the ballot. But you could not control the discussion or the election results. So I can really identify with how you must feel. We’ve felt that way for years and you never cared.

Yes, we all know exactly what it is like to be outcast by the public as troublemakers and crazies. But we were not looking to validate our victimhood. We didn’t have to. It is prima facie in any honest assessment. Along comes media now claiming to be the righteous victims of slander, smear or character assassination to vindicate their cause. It is dishonest. It is self-serving, it is agenda driven and, finally, it is very political.

Now you have laid the record bare for all to see. Only you want your trashed credibility back on a golden platter. That’s just not how any of this works.

Worse than all that, you have also lost credibility with the Left, your handlers and allies. You promised and built up their hopes that you would assist in taking down this president.

When the Mueller report came out and didn’t declare the collusion you promised, your radical base of consumers recoiled. Their hearts and trust were broken. So you have lost on both sides, with your enemies and your allies. Hurts, doesn’t it?

That should have taught you something. But it was your stubborn choices you made every step of the way that are to blame, not Trump. We didn’t destroy your credibility. You did that yourself. We only supplied the means. Remember reporters demanding apologies from Trump? By the way, did you ever apologize for the way you treated the Tea Parties? No, it’s all part of the long record now. It lives on to prove to anyone honestly looking.

You are the victims of your own bias and hatred. Thursday will only validate what we all knew. It will expose you for the liars you were all along. But Trump didn’t do it to you.

It might be time to take some stock and dust off that first amendment to see what is really in it. There is more there than your beloved freedom. And last I checked, you weren’t.

Seriously folks, just how far and how wide did Obama’s corruption go? The people need to know. He should not pass go and collect millions of dollars until we know. History is being cheated every day. That record cannot stand uncorrected.

Can anyone tell me that? Oh, they claim to predict with certainty when global warming or climate change will pass the point of correction. But do the experts and all-seeing eyes know the depth of Obama’s corrupt administration? Can they measure that?

AOC creature does IKEA furniture

Somewhere Deep in the bowels of DC office space dwells the fire-breathing AOC creature.

Welcome to the insane asylum, otherwise known as the Democrat party. And the lead spokespersons, aka mouthpieces, seem to be the worst patients in the asylum.

Take AOC for example. It’s so refreshing to be lectured on morality and gubmint by a 29 year-old brat who’s a former barmaid. Hard to imagine a worse fate for Americans.

Now she puts together Ikea furniture somewhere, while making videos to scold the electorate and the right. It’s not really clear who she is speaking to though you get the gist of her spew. She seems to have a compulsive need to call out someone constantly. For what? That apparently is sparked by dissent with her.

Now she’s lecturing us about our future progeny. But she has already told young people maybe think about having kids. Why do I think officially committing her to the criminally insane would not even stop her incessant dribble? She’s totally out of control.

While some people say “let her keep talking, she’s the best thing for Republicans,” she has that nagging way of making a bigger mockery of our DC Swamp. The O now stands for obnoxious. This is the new thing…this is the future of politics?

Nancy and Auntie Maxine, you’ve been outflanked.

It’s hard to believe we have disintegrated to this juvenile level, and that people would accept it as the new normal. Apparently there is no one waiting in the wings with the hook to pull her off. She keeps the daily disgust meter pegged. Good for Republicans? I find it hard to think she’d be good for anything.

Here’s the latest Poor Me video.

“How do you stay grounded and focused?” Really, who the hell said AOC was focused?

I guess DIY-TV was not interested in her instructional videos, so we’re stuck with them. She reminds us that the internet documents everything. And that she pities us for our role in history right now. Wow, call the men in the white suits, she’s off.

Note the vitriol. “Like why wouldn’t you all listen to me…an arrogant, narcissistic 29 year old, self-professed know it all? Huh, why wouldn’t you?”

She’s writing herself into history, or into the new Twilight Zone. Rod, we need a good intro for this one! When that crazy dog finally got the bumper.

Exhibit A for the psych evaluation. One thing for sure, nothing of her history will be lost on the internet. Kids, don’t grow up to do this!

(Any time someone starts off a video by getting on the floor and eating popcorn, I usually tune out. I should have followed my rule.)

War Hero Status: hands off McCain

Meghan McCain Retweeted Donald J. Trump

“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”
5:28 PM – 16 Mar 2019

In this episode of this long running series, Craig Shields opined that whenever people feel compelled to mention the Nazis or slavery in a conversation, they should stop right there. Don’t do it, he said, it will not go well. (never stopped Democrats from mentioning it)

To that firmly made point, Don Lemon chimed in with a remark adding war heroes to it, meaning like McCain. Just don’t do it, Don repeated. April Ryan was sitting there nodding in agreement to Lemon, rolling her eyes a few times shrugging as to why anyone should try to criticize or talk about McCain. Got the message.

But that brings up the point. We cannot mention John McCain in less than glowing terms. He is a war hero, after all, Lemon kept saying. So he was, and that makes him supposedly off limits to any criticism of him or his record.

Shields already said he had major disagreements with McCain because of the McCain-Fiengold Bill on campaign finance reform that attacked free speech. To the suggestion of disagreement, April Ryan rolled her eyes and shook her head back and forth. Nope, apparently one cannot even disagree on policy. No place for that.

Then Don Lemon added like your mother always told you, “don’t speak ill of the dead.” Now that is two reasons you cannot criticize McCain. First, he is a war hero and second, he is now dead. Yep that definitely puts him off the table. Bite your tongue.

So that sets up the scenario, those are the rules! But think about that a minute. Are we not now a generation that is taking issue with all kinds of people for what they did, especially even if they are also war heroes? Yes, we are. We have seen a string of it, tearing down statues and taking names off buildings all because they contributed to an intolerable policy. That means their war record status as a hero is post-facto expunged now.

I thought, you don’t have to look very far. A few examples popped into my head of Robert E Lee, Andrew Jackson and Benedict Arnold. Do they have something in common? (you could pick others too) They were heroes in their own right. Even Benedict Arnold had hero status before going to West Point and then selling out to become a traitor. He’s probably the most stellar example. But we do criticize him. I mean his name is forever smeared as a traitor. Yet he was a formidable soldier who Washington commended.

The point is all these are thoroughly critiqued today as villains of some type. But they were heroes too. Any statues of them would be removed. Whatever good they may have done is now undone by what we know about their actions or tangential support for policies. It doesn’t bother these McCain defenders one bit to bash or condemn those one-time heroes. In fact, it is good to make people aware of their wrongs and associated sins.

Look, I know no one is perfect. That is not my point. Actually, we are all flawed people. We may do great things and still have bad in our lifetime. These days though it is permissible to throw the man’s whole legacy out because of a stain. They are erasing our history the same way. But they will not find anyone perfect. We had founders that owned slaves. Does that blot them out of history? Should we sanitize history with only approved people?

They take the Jefferson Davis statue down and others. All that is good to these people; they endorse more of that cleansing. Except leave John McCain alone. “Leave him alone!”

There is another thing about McCain. Sure there is lots to criticize there. Lucky he never did become president because we know how they are treated — from Nixon to Obama. What about that? They were all still presidents. Yet they are routinely criticized all the time. (especially Republicans) They say but this man, McCain, must be exempt from any criticism. Is that fair? If he would have become president, he would have had criticism from both sides picking on his legacy, much worse than this.

I am getting very sick of how every time someone criticizes McCain, out come his preening guards calling you disrespectful, to remind everyone he is a war hero – End! No one can say a negative word about him. Trump does not follow their special McCain exempt rule.

Fox Goes All Out

On the crazy side, it seems all the left has to do is get the DNC to say it will not allow Fox News to have any debates in the primaries. That causes Fox to do all sorts of pandering stunts, presumably to get on the good graces of DNC and Democrats. Fools gold.

They come out and publicly flog Judge Jeanine for “anti-Islamic” statements. Then they hire Donna Brazile as a contributor. What, Hillary wasn’t available? Doesn’t Fox learn?

So that’s all Democrats have to do to bait Fox? But peeing in the wind is usually risky.

Jeb Jeb Jeb….(lonely echoes)

Isn’t there now a candidate in the race using a pseudonym already?
Anyway, who does Jeb mean? Surely he has suggestions.

Breitbart

Former failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush believes that someone should challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

“I think someone should run just because Republicans ought to be given a choice…” Bush said in an interview with CNN contributor David Axelrod.

Why Jebby, you didn’t like our Republican choice last time around.

“It’s hard to beat a sitting President, but to have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative, I think it’s important,” he continued.

Well, Jeb, we already had that conversation. Didn’t you get the memo?

We decided conservative was not establishment or a Dynasty. You didn’t have much to say in that conversation. Let me guess, you are available?

But maybe you could run on the Democrat ticket though? Hell, you don’t even have to be a member of the Democrat Party over there. And they really like conversations, sort of.

Suddenly Socialists

Gee, we’ve only been talking about it for 15 years, against their denials, but now everyone is awakening to the fact that Democrats are suddenly socialists. You think?

We could have told everyone that even before the 2000 election, it might have helped Republicans out. But no, even they wouldn’t admit it or listen to us then.

Now we are faced with a full-fledged commie revolution and suddenly Democrats are Socialists. Wow, even now people won’t broad brush all Dems with the label. But if it walks like a socialist and talks like a socialist, guess what? It ain’t a Pastrami sandwich.

Even if possibly too late to respond correctly, some Republicans want to dust off and run the anti-socialist playbook now. The one pooh-pooed years ago. Though I have a news flash for them, in order to oppose it you have to know something about the people and ideology they espouse. You have to understand their strategy and tactics. But people are getting a crash course about the latter with Nancy’s band of musketeers.

The good news seems to be that even Dems don’t understand it all too well, even while endorsing it at the drop of a MAGA hat. They follow along but don’t know the whole agenda. So it is doubtful Dems are up to speed to defend it — like they normally do — when they are still trying to get up to speed with their own comrade movement.

Well, here are a few pointers because, unlike some Republicans, I have at least done some research. The first thing to know is that, like communism, it is both a political and an economic system merged together. And that is the idea, you cannot separate them. Sure they can try to call it “social justice” as a cute term. But the old guard that think they are just playing politics as usual would be dead wrong. Dems too have to update strategy.

The aim here, as Marx said, is to achieve socialized man. Whether they want to call that some social justice or not today means little to me. It is also a bit of a philosophical or extreme ideological system. That makes it a combination of all political and economic realms. But it also lays out as its concern the nature of humans. Now I could be misstating parts or misinterpreting a few things, but I don’t think so. (by much)

The problem with the left today is so often similar tactics are used from different, various groups toward their individual ends. Whatever works or succeeds with one organization can be duplicated in another — with anticipated results. It is easy for allies to cross apply rules and tactics among radicals on the left, it is encouraged. Sharing also brings them closer as allies into the same goals. In this case, Socialism. They even try to use winning Republican strategies like Tea Parties. All they care about are results.

The socialists and Leftists always saw it as a struggle or fight to overthrow the existing system. Now that fight has begun here whether we chose to realize it or not. The terms for that struggle are any means necessary. It’s a bit unfair attacking capitalism with economics and politics. We’ve seen how the Left has politically usurped almost everything in our social fabric. The gurus of Socialism have been successful at it. Now they forecast a complete political and economic transformation — takeover. They’ve done a job on the political part. That is not an election. So now they want to roll the economic system into their basket of political chaos. I fear that unless we understand the parameters we impose our own disadvantage. That is where I see us.

The youth which has become mesmorized, suddenly socialists don’t know or care much about the dynamics. It seems all that matters is what they want. How they can listen to all these angry socialists and be inspired by it is beyond my capability. Nor do they seem to care that once you bring down the system it is hard to return. Maybe the hard-line organizers do know but it only encourages them.

We do have one thing working against them. Look at Bernie’s rallies, and at the people out front surrounding him. Look at their faces. It’s clear to me this is the face of the commmie left, a lot like the old face. A great picture. They appear as defiant and angry as Bernie does. They aren’t the love peaceniks from years ago. They are people with an (political) agenda. Like those leaders in congress, they don’t really care what the rest of us rational people want. “Struggle” they call it; only with hammers and a steamroller.
 

Note: In case you haven’t already seen it, watch the video on the Brains Behind AOC, for a good primer on the Justice Democrats takeover agenda. They like actors.

One For The Book

Now here is a song done in circa 1989 by the Charlie Daniels Band.

Well, it might be considered a little too politically incorrect nowadays. But still it was one of the best for him, plainly called “Simple Man.”

But for some odd reason, the song sounds a little older than it is.

And that is what makes Charlie such a good storyteller.
