Music And Politics Sitting In A Tree

But let me start off with a made to order joke. Bless their little young hearts.

Sometimes I get a kick out of young people today, their naiveté still intrigues me. Even though they often seem ignorant of basic history. That is not all their fault.

So one day I was in a fast food place. The employees were having this discussion about the upcoming 50th anniversary of Woodstock. I couldn’t help listening because I was not doing anything except standing there waiting for my order.

All three of the guys were fairly young, and the only women was about middle-aged. She appeared to be schooling them on Woodstock, odd as that seemed to me at the time.

Then the one young guy ask her impatiently “well, was Hip Hop going on then, too, were they doing that?” I couldn’t resist cutting in to say, “they hadn’t even put those two words together yet” and I chuckled. They all looked at me with their upper wheels turning.

I looked at the guy who asked and said “ Man, they barely knew what rock and roll was back then. They were still breaking it in.” But then I saw his big eyes and knew that went right over his knowledge base and sailed into the deep. I smiled and walked away.

Dummy me, I thought maybe a joke would illustrate the point and further their discussion. But instead it ended it and left me wondering if it was my delivery that failed? And if it was some generational thing I crossed? At least I thought it was funny, they will probably never know if it was true, funny… or both?

Joined At The Hip

Say what you will about the original Woodstock which stole headlines some 5 decades ago this year. Those discussions are still going on, as I can testify. Organizers are planning a 50th anniversary to the Woodstock concert this year. But déjà vu all over again.

The original site in Bethel, NY has plans for an anniversary to memorialize the Max Yasgur Farm concert in ’69 and has already booked one top headliner, Carlos Santana.

But Michael Lang, one of the original promoters, has planned what he claims is the only original sanctioned anniversary celebration, which he announced will be in Watkins Glen, NY. In that one, political activism and sustainability will be a central theme for the event. And no doubt for the “woke” as well.

Not only is he drafting top talent, but also encouraging their political activism for the event too. So is this where Farm Aide and Woodstock exchange vows and officially tie the knot, joined in a river of political activism? No matter what the location, it will be billed as Utopia. Who knows if the National Anthem will even be allowed in this one? (old reference to Jimmie Hendrix) Or if maybe the Black Bloc and Antifa will do security for the event?

Take it from Lang himself: (CBS News January 11, 2019)

The festival will also evoke its predecessor through activism, with sustainability efforts and screenings, panels and art installations by non-profit organizations. “The Woodstock 50th
Anniversary will be about sharing an experience with great artists and encouraging people to get educated and involved in the social issues impacting everyone on the planet,” said Lang.

“”We want this to be more than just coming to a concert,” Lang told The New York Times. “And hopefully a lot of the bands will become part of this effort to get people to stand up and make themselves heard, to get out [and] vote. And if they don’t have a candidate that represents their feelings, to find one — or to run themselves.”

From coming to sexual awareness to coming to political wokeness. Is that where mud baths come in? Is it where the white rabbit has a coup over the enchanted forest?

Okay, so music, history, or anniversary may not be the real motivation here. Political priorities, you know. No word whether any of the up and comers in presidential candidates are booking the event. They could have hours of speeches to a captive audience if they go all out. How nostalgic would that be? I don’t recall that was the message of Woodstock but that was then and this is now. What better place to grease the skids for socialism?

And now, being the radicalized leftist culture it is, supposedly on the rise, I can see it “and now a word from our movement icon, Bernie Sanders.” To which the crowd roars to their feet and gives him a fifteen minute standing ovation.

That could only be followed by another speech from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bringing home the Socialism message. And Michael Moore applauding waiting in the wings.

If you were one of the headliner bands, how on earth could you follow that bad acid trip? It also has me wondering what would be the definition of “success” for such a grand event? I guess you measure it in political success and, of course, by fundraising totals.

So Woodstock….you are finally 50, now how about growing the f*** up?

Borderless Democrats At Your Service

Once again, it is time for one of those rantoramas. At times one cannot control the frustration or disdain even to write a persuasive piece. So instead, I get to say just what I think. And someone really wants us to feel helpless about our circumstances.

I am so sick and tired of this issue of illegal invasion. It has been on the stove for now thirteen plus years. That means it is under the third different administration. Words may escape me in how wrong this all is. At least I know I am not alone in my frustration.

Another thing has become crystal clear. That is if we the people, I mean the sane ones, all know what should be done to stem this problem, then why can’t our illustrious Reps and Senators in Washington do it. I mean this is what we pay them and elect them for, to handle the business of the country. Why is that so difficult for them to do? Back up, their job is not to just tell us what we cannot do or shouldn’t. And many of them are the ones who broke the system in the first and second place.

Excuse me, I must concentrate on these lily liberal, progressive dirtbags here. Yes, I have had it up to my neck too with people saying but it is both sides that are culpable. Stop with that, we know where the real problems come from. Sure there are a few stragglers in the Republican ranks with their own selfish agendas. I’ve talked about that before. But can we finally admit and concentrate on the real problem here?

We may have questioned progressives’ agenda before and called them this or that. We may have even called them UN-American. Now they have upped that in case we missed it.They are plainly Anti-American now. Yes, they have destruction of America as we know it in their sights. Yes, they realize it. And never have they been closer to that goal than at this moment in history, to carry out the demise of our Republic and they are firing from all points. We actually do have a civil war raging on in the country, just by other means, only we aren’t calling it that. These perennial post-American pols antagonize it.

There can be no doubt now about their goal. They’ve told us as much and admitted it. They don’t bother trying to hide or deny it anymore. And that replacement of our entire system is the vehicle by which they will carry out their plans. It was all set up by Obama. We knew it at the time. But all our complaints for eight years that they tried like hell to deny are all being validated in spades. Now it is more like if you like your country you cannot keep your country. It’s called screw America 101.

There are dirtbags and detours every where you look. I like metaphors as much as the next guy to really drive a point home but in this case we don’t need metaphors anymore. Reality is quite bad enough. No, we are not going to play Democrats’ other parlor game of ‘blame Trump because he is president now, so it must be his fault!’ That is as bad as the “both sides” nonsense. He is the one constant fighting it.

I am wondering when it is time for amnesty for Americans, well, just because we if anyone deserve it? We are now last on the list of considerations, it is obviously clear. The ruling class has other matters on their minds, frankly, anything other than us. No, you cannot say that about most Republicans. But you can say it about Democrats. They don’t care about us. In fact, it seems like we are being penalized while everyone else is being rewarded or promoted. Is that their real dream? That seems to be part of their grand justice platform.

And don’t even start me with their social justice bullshit. It’s not social and it sure isn’t justice they want. It is revenge and selective retribution and redistribution they want.

Our priorities are at the very bottom of their list, from securing the border to having a fair justice system, to having respect for law and order. Nope, those things are the antithesis to what they want. So we lose, too bad. The least one needs to do is acknowledge who his/her real enemies are. And they are right there. In fact, they are in our faces almost everyday running to their media appearances and making their declarations from on high. Or they are in hearing rooms representing their own selfish interests, in front of cameras rubbing it in our faces. There is a certain honesty about it all, at least we know they don’t care. And they are proud of it. We are back where we were in 2010, but even worse off.

They will trot out to the campaign trail because they have decided that the only thing of utmost importance is elections. So many of the Reps and Senators are running now, They are part timers. Their real gig is just running for office, sort of like Hillary’s always was. The job itself? They get to decide that, too, not the Constitution or rules. But we are last on their long list of self-serving priorities. Illegal aliens, even those on their way here, somehow get top billing on their considerations. Come one come all.

They’ve given up, long ago, on the idea that they stand up for the working guy. He’s at the bottom of their list, too. Actually, he is much the problem because he is inconvenient to all their other pipe dreams of a Green Economy and a workless society. One where government is in control of everything… and yet responsible for nothing at the same time. They say they are not interested in corporate businesses but they are. Boy are they. They are in their pockets and have their hand out in front of them. It is like old Jesse Jackson’s routine of a shakedown city. Corporate greed is only the means to grease their palms and fleece their campaign coffers. You are an enemy to the state unless you prove otherwise.

The fact that all of this is so blatantly obvious now to us means nothing to them. So it creates contention between us and our representatives. You think they care? They just want to be the permanent ruling class elites. Your value as a pawn in that scheme matters not in the least. They will tell you what is important to them, and they’ll demonstrate it right it front of you. Those principles to you — securing the border, protecting sovereignty, doing the people’s business, honoring an oath of office — are toilet tissue to them.

The next election is all that matters. Always the next election. One thing unimportant during the perpetual campaign cycle, to Democrats, is the will of the people. That is fungible. It is whatever they declare it is. See how the working guy would definitely be at odds with that agenda? These things, common principles, used to be important but that is so 50 years ago. Gone is any illusion of integrity or responsibility.

But I was only getting started.

Of Loons And Train Wrecks

Is a train wreck still a train wreck if it doesn’t realize it’s a train wreck? (rhetorical)

I say that because some people and media seem to afford AOC a kind of pass simply because she doesn’t realize how dumb she sounds or stupid her ideas are — much less the consequences. I think that is a fatal mistake.

The answer of course is it is still a train wreck and will continue to be a train wreck, no matter how you perceive it or choose to think of it. The big ‘Green Dream’ is alive, too.

Something is not merely so ridiculous that it did not happen — only because it is ridiculous. Of course reality can be stupid at times and it can be a train wreck, even both at the same time. There are no mitigating factors to the physical damage done. It is what it is.

Cause on the other hand can be a deliberative debate over many contributing factors to it. But that does not change the final result, after.

I know we have a lack of common sense on the Left. But it is what it is. What consequences there are to that lack are already evident in a lot of places but they do not change due to the cause. Now maybe you could change the outcome of future events if you change the former. But you cannot change what is done.

This is the kind of light under which I think we have to look at AOC. We can laugh at her or react any way we want to but it won’t change what she is. It may be entertainment of sorts. Though I cannot dismiss her plans or what they will do out of hand, just because of the source. I’m done disbelieving what is now possible.

We had a similar thing with Obama. So many people dismissed what he could or would do. It turned out they were wrong. Now, faced with all that damage, the results do not change just because they underestimated him. Yes, I’d like accountability but that will not fix it.

Tolerance needs to be accountable, too.

We cannot underestimate the power of stupidity either. Dismiss it at your own peril.

We cannot suspend all the real consequences, or even analysis of these ideas, only because it is AOC. That is not how any of this works. Maybe she underestimates the will of the people but it does not change what her plans could do to America.

In this scenario, we are still a deciding factor over whether it can or will happen. But don’t underestimate our own stupidity either. (doesn’t matter why) We cannot stop it after.

Excuses or Alibis

In the end, if some of what she is pushing does happen, all we will be able to do is make excuses or point fingers of blame to why. But alibis will mean nothing. That is what makes all this serious now, while we still are a factor in the outcome. Blame is not going to matter. It is not serious because it is AOC, regardless what she thinks.

But what makes it serious is not because it is AOC or because the ideas don’t work, or that they are both stupid. Our big risk is not taking it seriously for what it all can do.

AOC The Snake Charmer

I have tried to probe the intellects of Aristotle and Solzhenitsyn over the years, but now I’d like to try something different and go where no man has gone before.(or lived through it) That is to attempt to probe the intellectual curiosity of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.

Even more to this challenge, I will do it without the aid of alcohol or hallucinogenic drugs.

First thing though is she reminds me a lot of Jim Carey. She is looking dumb and dumber all the time. Now you see what an enormous challenge this is.

Pink Floyd had a song with the lyrics

“Hello? (hello) (hello)
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?”

With AOC, who knows what answer would come forth. Maybe something like “Who dis?”

Sure, I mean she does have a stupid reputation. Is that really fair to her? Does she deserve all the attention she receives? Can she last in the annals of politics? Does she have a bright future ahead of her? Can anything good come from the AOC experiment? I’ll inquire.

But is there possibly more there within the canyon walls of her brain that she is hiding? More to its utility than we can see? Stay with me on this. So far in 2 weeks that she has actually been in office, she has called for a purge of Dems non-conforming to her ideology. (that word fails to describe her politics, but I’m working on a more suitable term for it)

At first look, she probably does not deserve the resources expended in an any article about her. We shall see. She has been sucking all the oxygen out of every room though, so what is her gimmick? Why does it seem to keep working in her favor? What lessons can we draw or learn from her case study? I know, so many questions…. so many roads.

To establish the prevailing point, whether the most important one about her or not, that she is a narcissist of an extreme level. Does that remind you of anyone else? She also seems obsessed with attention, not that it is the same as narcissism. No, she demands attention. She lept out into the public spotlight in her race but never crawled back into her hole. For most people, there is a shelf life on that national spotlight. Not with her. Whatever she is doing must be working to keep bestowing all that nationwide attention on her.

Is it her dumbness that everyone is fascinated by? Is it her naivete? Is it that she fits the stereotype of many young people today? What is this magnetism by which people seem drawn to her? Is it our fault? Did we create this Frankenstein and now we don’t know how to stop it? Can we reprogram that power, whatever it is?

She also does not seem to care what people think of her, or say about her for that matter. She is proud of herself. That is a trait of many snobby, spoiled children. Is she still a child, because in many ways she still acts like one? Finally, is she really as dumb as she seems?

She definitely appears to be just as oblivious to others as she seems to be. Two times when prominent Democrats, one a seasoned politician and one a comedian personality, have denounced her upitiness and behavior only for her to dismiss them and snark back at their advice. She is a know it all who seems to know little about anything.

From waitress to Diva, without a particular skill or talent to her name, in record time. Or is that a skill in itself, to be perpetually relevant? But that strategy has not always worked for Hillary and look at all she has done to get it. It seems to come easy for Miss Sleazy Ocasio. Is she the female version of a Che Guevera?

Of course we can sit around blaming her for a lot of what is wrong with politics today, post-Clintons and post-Obama. She fits the mold for criticism of it all quite well. But are we really almost as much to blame for what she is? That thought sickens me.

I would rather blame Hillary and Bill Clinton, Obama and Bernie Sanders. Indeed, she could be a byproduct of all three, made to order. Especially Bernie. Funny, the guy we laughed at and mocked as a socialist years ago turned political superstar in 2016. And AOC rode that subway in large part to power. If there was something to fear from it all that would be a good place to start.

Is she as complex a political creature as some think, or only as conniving as she appears?

The synopsis

The point I inevitably come to is that she is a mirror reflection of society today. Maybe not all of it but enough. She is what that comic strip Pogo was talking about in that line, “We have met the enemy and the enemy is us.” Sure we can blame and pick her apart but is she not a reflection of the modern politico and activist of the left? She is the consummate leftist, no wonder they all seem to gravitate to her. She is everything they are and want, but afraid to admit it about themselves.

So she continues on her way, championing one grand leftist idea after another, barely taking a breath between them. Exactly the way they talk. She must know the policies are pie in the sky, with no real definition. Who cares? But enough to have Democrats cheering for it and more. Fiction or reality makes no difference, it is only what they perceive.

And in the end, I come to the conclusion she is a talented snake charmer. She is able to communicate in telepathy with the hard left, which is all she cares about. She is everything they want and nothing they don’t. They are her targets. She plays the tunes and they dance. It all goes off as one big show.

It seems to be working because she has them believing that melody is all that matters. They are coaxed out of their baskets like trained serpents. Some Democrats may complain but her methods are working. The masses consistently respond to her seduction.

FALN: justice denied

These domestic terrorists remain unprosecuted for their acts. Bill and Hillary pardoned FALN terrorists and enabled them. Obama later pardoned one of the FALN stragglers.

Eric Holder did his part and now has presidential aspirations of his own.

Yet MSM remains as quiet as church mice about these terrorists. Always has. Drive a news story? Fuhgeddaboudit! Congress has done little to capture terrorist thugs in Cuba.

Where is justice? A lot of people are asking that same question these days.

Hillary never paid the price or was held accountable. No one was.

Terrorists Murdered My Father. They Have Not Seen Justice

By Joe Connor January 24, 2019 | National Review
Bill Clinton and Barack Obama gave some clemency; the chief bomb-maker escaped to Cuba.

Forty-four years ago today, terrorists shattered my family. Sadly, the war against these individuals and their benefactors continues to this day.

My father, 33-year-old Frank Connor, and three other innocent men were murdered, while scores were injured and maimed, on Jan. 24, 1975, when the Marxist Puerto Rican terrorist group Armed Forces for National Liberation (“FALN”) blew up New York’s historic Fraunces Tavern during a crowded lunchtime. The FALN appointed themselves my father’s judge, jury, and executioner, profiling, targeting, and savagely murdering so-called “reactionary corporate executives.” The Connor family had planned to celebrate my ninth and my brother’s 11th birthday that very night.

Fraunces Tavern was targeted by the FALN — who paid lip service to independence but in reality sought to impose a Cuban-style socialist regime in Puerto Rico — for its proximity to Wall Street and for its storied reputation as the birthplace of American liberty. Alexander Hamilton and the Sons of Liberty met there. General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at Fraunces after the Revolutionary War…./

When Americans call it the Department of Injustice that is what they are talking about.

A New State Is Born

Doing a short and sweet here for the blog. Once again the country of the US is busting a move to make history. And the Left is proudly taking a central role in it. We have now become 51. It is final, the Democrats have founded a brand new state in the nation.

It is called the State of Denial.

No word so far on how many Democrats populate it, growing rapidly as it is. Safe to say most Democrats either live there or are in the process of moving in. Real estate demands being what they are. Square miles of it are unknown, yet is already considered vast.

There is only one problem, it doesn’t really fit in with the United States of America — as unification is not a characteristic. It also infringes on other states but that shouldn’t be a problem. Though make no mistake, it is actually a state in America. Sure it will demand all of the perks of a united state but it is united only with itself;. its only allegiance is to itself.

It should now get entered into the history as such, and credited to Democrats for founding it. It needs its own Wikipedia page. Though its geographic coordinates are still being worked out in real time, its unique presence has already been felt and made known.

So it will be interesting what this new State of Denial brings to the table or what fateful influence it will have on the USA. We will have to wait and see.

Another problem is that it does not particularly believe in borders. It does not accept the Constitution either, except where it can find some twisted agreement with it. And it does not accept the authority and responsibility that the federal government has to secure other states and people from invasions. Nor does it accept the oath of office as written.

But surely it will send as many Congressional representatives to Washington as it can, by fact or fraud…. because “what difference at this point does it make anyway?”

We should all plan on hearing much more from this boisterous state, soon. It doesn’t like sitting idle or waiting its turn. It is rather arrogant and its nasty tentacles are long. Stay tuned to see if the 51st state will destroy the other 50.

Already many people are wondering if we should still call the country a union? You may want to put a question mark by that word for future use.

Ref: Wiki

“The Admission to the Union Clause of the United States Constitution, often called the New States Clause, found at Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1, authorizes the Congress to admit new states into the United States beyond the thirteen already in existence at the time the Constitution went into effect.”

[*Note]“The Admission to the Union Clause also forbids the creation of new states from parts of existing states without the consent of both the affected states and Congress”.

But then why should that particular detail apply when they can just ignore, defy and deny the rest of the Constitution — in whole or in part? So I’m still going to refer to it by it’s proper name, (united) State of Denial. No comment from Google or GPS makers yet.

By the way: all the rules you might think should oppose its erection really don’t matter. They don’t apply to it. Rumor is all the news networks are putting a home office there.

The good news is there is no need for an extra star on the flag since they don’t believe in that or the flag. Their trademark symbol would be black bloc or flames anyway.

God Bless America because the Left sure won’t.

Both Sides Of The Wall

You’ve heard of the wall Go Fund Me campaign and probably even heard media or Democrats critique it by fact or purpose, because that is what they do.

You probably also heard — it is not lost on the commie, Marxist or socialist Left — radicals already started a Go Fund Me of their own called “Ladders to Get Over Trump’s Wall.” And it has already raised 160k but yet always manages to say it’s trending.

But you should also now know about another fund and organization that existed even before the Wall fundraiser. It was called Raices. It is a 501c organization. (Guess they would never have a problem getting any 501 status)

Take it from the parent site of Ladders’ GFM: (which is where the donations flow)

“How are the donations going to be used?

“The funds will go toward legal representation for immigrant children and parents in Texas, as well as toward paying parents’ bond so they can be released from detention centers and reunited with their children. The organization — which currently has about 50 lawyers on staff — plans to go on a hiring spree and fund training for volunteer lawyers willing to travel to Texas to assist, Mr. Ryan said.” “

” LEAF – The Legal Representation, Advocacy, and Education (LEAF) Project will provide universal representation for released unaccompanied kids in Texas.”

But also the rub is here:

” Family Reunification and Bond Fund: FREE our Families – Parents separated from their children at the border (and other immigrants placed in detention) can’t get released from ICE custody to reunite with their families until they pay the full amount of their immigration bond. Bonds are set at a MINIMUM of $1500, and are usually in the range of $5-10K, even for asylum seekers without any criminal history. This fund will directly support legal services for detained separated parents and the direct funding for bonds to get parents released. “

You should also know how it is doing. And from a Texas paper I won’t name:

“The massive fundraising effort on Facebook aims to help reunite children with their parents. The campaign, created June 16, has raised more than $16.8 million. “

So it’s already been pretty active on low radar, raising money. How is it doing it?

The fundraiser has also been matched up to $360,000 by private donors. The goal of the fundraiser is currently set at $20 million. “

Get that? The wall has just eclipsed the amount Raices raised. I suppose they are mad. Heck, they could have raised money without using The Wall campaign for a fundraiser.

You see what they are doing? Paying for all the bonds of the illegals so they can make bond and go their way. With the publicity, word is out to encourage more people to come.

So the message that I get from this is that they are directly funding an invasion against our country. That is what is going on, no matter how they want to spin it. They are paying. And they are promising all comers they will pay their legal freight and release bonds.

Now something else worth noting here is that they even boast that they are doing a big hiring spree to grow the 50 plus lawyers they have. I believe they operate predominately in the Texas area. But heck, they want to expand as much and as quick as possible.

Get all that? While we are trying to step down and reduce the illegal invasion, they are trying to step it up by their efforts. Nice people, they assist and pay illegals to break in.

But it is also a one stop shop for legal representation and activism or lobby efforts, to encourage (more) illegals. Take it from their mouths:

“In the most generous interpretation of the stories coming to light, U.S. Border Patrol and the Department of Health and Human Services are *abjectly terrible* at their jobs. In the more likely interpretation: they don’t particularly care about reuniting these families. Regardless of motivation, the result is the same: the government of the United States is actively preventing these families from being made whole.

RAICES and the organizations they are partnering with are going to need a lot more than a bond fund. They’re going to need a lot more than a few pro bono attorneys. They need a legion of lawyers, psychologists, child advocates, investigators. They need you calling your elected officials EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. about this. They need you talking to everyone you know about this. And they will need it for a very long haul.

As their closer to prod activists to help promote them and their mission of invasion:

After you’re done reading this story — please commit to this cause. Share it with your Facebook friends. Talk about it at the dentist and in the grocery checkout line. Bring it to church and synagogue and mosque and any other temple of values and morals in your life. Google incessantly for your local charities that work with the Office of Refugee Resettlement and sign up to help tomorrow. Let every day of your life be a day where you have remembered these families and done something about it.

These kids have to be more than a moment for us — they have to be a movement. The only people who can fix this are the people of the United States of America.

Hear that? Let it sink in real good. It’s not a punch line. NO, the people who can fix this are the people and governments in the countries they are coming from. So when these people get hurt, killed or disappear on the long route here for the free treatment, will this organization be held responsible? And what about that Logan Act now?

“Kids have to be more…. they have to be a movement.” So we all need to fund and keep this movement alive is the only logical deduction you can make from this, using the kids. And you see the clear demonization of our public, government officials and border patrol. They are actively working against our immigration system.

Now if you listen to the left, they are furious we are talking about a border wall and donating to fund it. E-gads, do you see what we are up against? This should cause anyone to run over to the Go Fund Me for the wall to make a donation. (even small ones)

Would you like one more kicker for the road, if that wasn’t offensive enough? I looked at “Ladders for Illegals” GFM page at the top donor link. What do you think I saw? The top thousand dollar donation is from “Go Fund Me team.” A kick start gift? But nice they stepped in to help out their noble efforts! So their plan is 20 million but you know that will turn into their ground floor and they’ll need to raise even so much more.

I guess that is why the urgent plea to call and write your reps to push their cause. What’s next? Oh, Democrats will find creative ways to help fund the cause, I’m sure. You know Democrats and funding, they know the ropes and because rules or laws don’t usually pertain to them. (or aren’t enforced.)

So before long, if not already, Dems will have ways to fund this whole border invasion scheme. (Gov money?) You thought “catch and release” was bad enough.

Granted this is not the only exclusive leg of funding directly available to illegals. Imagine other large orgs doing similar things. But you heard them, they are very ambitious to do much more. I’m sure word is out too, all the way to Guatemala and Honduras by now. How long before Americans are funding their own out of control invasion? Not long!

Well, until the funds get rolling in, which is all it is ever about to Democrats, they give you helpful things you should tell renegade Reps in your activism, to keep their efforts going.

Things you should ask of your representatives:

1. Where do you stand on this issue?

2. What are you doing right now to reverse this policy?

3. Urge them to vote against legislation that does more harm than good.

4. When is the town hall on this issue? (Not if, but WHEN)

All that persistent reminding to reps will signify how important this is to progressive leftists. You can guarantee they will get attention too, in more than words.

Incidentally, you will also notice if you look into any of their information, just as the GFM page on Ladders for Illegals, that anyone who dares oppose or disagree with their mission/agenda is a racist. For example the bottom of the update page reads

Questions? Concerns? Misspelled remarks full of racist vitriol you’d like to pass along? Find me at cmclymer .

Also: kudos to Nancy Levine and other advocates who have set up similar satirical fundraising for RAICES at /gofundthewall.net

Notice at the end a plug for “Go Fund The Wall”.net, leading to their main site. Great for co-opting search engines and Google. What is really satirical?

See blatant attack calling people racist and white supremacist? Guess they know nothing about La Raza -“the Race”.

We still think the wall is a ridiculous idea borne out of the tragic fear inherent in white supremacy, and we all must do what we can to demand the United States be a society that doesn’t turn away any human being fleeing violence and persecution.

A wall must never be built, and our undocumented siblings must be recognized as part of our larger American family and given the dignity and respect accorded any human being.

Speak up. Register to vote. End white supremacy.

Can you open your window and scream “Open Borders!!!” at the top of your lungs?

Read between the lines: the only sure way to show you are not a racist is donate and be on the safe side, for the record. A naysayer or disagree? You’re a friggin’ racist!

Yet many of these gentile humanitarians are the same ones who have been heckling, threatening and attacking Kolfage for what he is doing. You can read at the Wall site the names and things he was called. Vile stuff about being an amputee. (maybe if only he was from Honduras or illegal, instead of a patriotic vet?)

Are Americans and groups now funding their own invasion of US? Borderless & lawless.

Hey hey, ho ho… time to build the wall, ho ho!

Thugs of Descent

They wonder why we call them thugs. That is racist, they tell us. But how many other of these anti-American thugs are out there creating havoc on the streets among the people in this country? Plenty. This is a guy with a triangle background.

And somehow we get criticized for what we call these commies. How they assert themselves into the conversation in the first place is another serious issue.

Yet it is all just another part of Obama’s enduring legacy of deceit. Take this guy as a prime example of a leftist activist and organizer, thug. I mean really take him.

Daily Caller – (positively must read all the details)
“Revealed: Antifa Leader Relied On Anonymity To Push Radical, Violent Communist Agenda”

Smash Racism DC organizer Jose Martin, also known as “Chepe,” is a radical communist and Antifa leader operating in the U.S. He advocates for the violent overthrow of the government and for the murder of the rich and claims to have international involvement in left-wing movements.

Smash Racism DC is the Antifa group that protested in front of Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house and berated Sen. Ted Cruz at a restaurant until he and his wife were forced to leave. It’s only one of the Antifa leader’s radical left-wing projects.

See: https://dailycaller.com/2018/12/18/antifa-leader-violent-communist/

Note how proud he is by media not covering Antifa and ignoring it that they’ve been mainstreamed. Look at his connections from thugs and fellow commies, to members of congress in DC, to media. Yep, he touches all the bases. And the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with his family of the same lifestyle, shared beliefs.

America, is this your future? That the left can normalize and mainstream this crapola says a lot. This is who some promote as the morality police? You’ve got to be kidding me. Nope.

Judicial Watch: Federal Court Orders Hillary Clinton to Answer Additional Email Questions Under Oath

Judicial Watch — NOVEMBER 15, 2018

(Washington, DC) –Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that within 30 days Hillary Clinton must answer under oath two additional questions about her controversial email system.

In 2016, Clinton was required to submit under oath written answers to Judicial Watch’s questions. Clinton objected to and refused to answer questions about the creation of her email system; her decision to use the system despite warnings from State Department cybersecurity officials; and the basis for her claim that the State Department had “90-95%” of her emails.

After a lengthy hearing yesterday Judge Sullivan ruled that Clinton must address two questions that she refused to answer under-oath.

Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

Judge Sullivan read his opinion from the bench, deciding that the question about the creation of the email system was within the scope of discovery. Judge Sullivan rejected Clinton’s assertion of attorney-client privilege on the question about the emails “in the State’s system.”

The court refused Judicial Watch’s and media’s requests to unseal the deposition videos of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and other Clinton State Department officials. And it upheld Clinton’s objections to answering a question about why she refused to stop using her Blackberry despite warnings from State Department security personnel. Justice Department lawyers for the State Department defended Clinton’s refusal to answer certain questions and argued for the continued secrecy of the deposition videos.

This hearing and court ruling is the latest development in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former deputy chief of staff to Clinton. The lawsuit, which seeks records regarding the authorization for Abedin to engage in outside employment while employed by the Department of State, was reopened because of revelations about the clintonemail.com system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)). The court also granted discovery to Judicial Watch to help determine if and how Clinton’s email system thwarted FOIA.

“A federal court ordered Hillary Clinton to answer more questions about her illicit email system – which is good news,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is shameful that Judicial Watch attorneys must continue to battle the State and Justice Departments, which still defend Hillary Clinton, for basic answers to our questions about Clinton’s email misconduct.”

See at: https://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-federal-court-ordered-hillary-clinton-to-answer-additional-email-questions-under-oath/

Okay, looks good on it’s face. My conclusion would be the insult this whole thing is to our system of justice. Here we had Clinton commit violations that were far outside the law.

So now because of the fact she did it all under the job title she was in, the government has to come in to defend her actions and explain her egregious conduct. (Excuse my barfing”) It is so outrageous that both the DOJ and Dep of State could be called in to defend her conduct. And of course they have to do it at our taxpayers’ expense, too. A double.

But that is the way this whole thing goes and Hillary knows it. She sewed the seeds of it into the State Dep. She knew and planned this. You have to wonder if this makes State accomplices to her crimes? And if Barry Soetoro is also liable for having allowed it?

Then the last salient point: why do we continually always find about this mostly through Judicial Watch when we had active Congressional investigations, and presumably DOJ investigations as well? Yet here they are in battle for answers some 5-1/2 years later.

No wonder Hillary’s new theme is “Onward Together.” She commits the offenses then drags everyone along, forced to defend her every step of the way. “Togetherness” that way has always been one of endearing benefit to the Clintons.

Dedication to Leftist Celebs

And here is a brand new song freshly written and dedicated to all you Hollywood malcontents out there in Resistifornia. You know who you are.

You’ve been threatening to leave the US right after election for the last few elections now.

It is time to sink or swim, don’t you think? Maybe we can crowd source the trip for you.

(sung in the key of F- flat)

There’s a room with a view in Havana
You can sip tea out in the cabana.

But don’t tell them who sent ya
Cause they just might resent ya.
(Refrain)

[*Note: all rights reserved 🙂 ]

Throw in a Peace Sign minus the index finger… just for emphasis.

And there you have it, my humble contribution. Hope they like it.

Reference: Barbara Streisand announced recently she’ll be moving to Canada after November 6th, if Democrats fail to win back power. (do not try to threaten us, Babs)

On closer look, she has an album being released November 2nd called “Walls” where she puts her disgruntled political invective to songs. (Resistance on steroids) A promotion?

Well, that should repulse a lot of people. So rather than spitefully moving to Canada, maybe Babs could be run out of the country to Mexico? They never threaten to move there.

Until then, it looks like we’re going to hear much more from the Princess of Resistance.

No means “no” except when it should

It would seem pretty ironic that the party of the radical left who never misses a chance to say no, in defiant “resistance,” just cannot say no to condemn violence of their left wing radical base. They can’t ever do that.

Instead, they will go to any lengths on the left not to voice any opposition to, or offer no condemnation for, the left’s violence. Whether it vandalizes a Republican building in NYC, burns police cars, or commandeers a chunk of a city in Washington, or whether leftists chase down conservatives in restaurants to create a crowd, or shout down Congressional hearings so you cannot hear. Dems will say or do anything else to avoid condemning it.

Out of those same zipped lips for condemning they call us extremists and dangerous. They have a phobia to the word no when and where it matters. But we know why.

They do condemn our use of the word Mob though, when that is how the miscreants act and who they are. But they can never condemn a possible friendly group to the Left, even if it is a rented one. They couldn’t even call MS-13 gang members animals for what they do. Instead, Nancy Pelosi said they have a spark of divinity.

The same spark of divinity that an unborn baby lacks.

They need anyone who could be a potential voter bloc for them whether legal or illegal. If they can use violence to their political ends then what won’t they use? That also fits the definition of terrorism — using violence to perpetuate their political ends. Yet we are supposed to be hostage to this political blackmail of the Mobacracy. And what does the Mobocracy want and support? A Thugocracy. Democrats call that a value of democracy.

No condemnation for cop killers, violence addicts, fascist Antifa, or those working on behalf of the Mobocracy. The only question remaining in the end is who is really in control in this Mobocracy of the left? Is it their politicians? Doesn’t seem so to me.

On the contrary, Holder said “when they go low, kick them.” Hillary said we can never have civility until they are in power. No, their hallmark is incivility, regardless.

So, I wonder why we didn’t see any civility when they were in control of all branches? What we got was “I won”….shut up and get in the backseat. We don’t need to hear from you. Incivility always rules; in power or out makes no difference. We got Obamacare lies.

The Threat Within America

In their own words:

“We oftentimes had these debates and discussions about ‘out of the streets and into the suites’ — that was the term that was used to describe the swan song of the civil rights movement. … He made a decision and thought he could make a difference by being on the inside.” [emphasis added] — Socialist Workers Party member and University of Minnesota Professor August Nimtz on long time friend Keith Ellison.

See: https://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Ellilson_Burn_This_Book.pdf

Of course Ellison thought he could make a difference by being on the inside. We know that is what he is there for. Most radical leftists start by believing they can make a difference. Then position themselves or act accordingly to carry it out.

Radicalism is not a spectator sport.

H/T to The United West

From the foreword of “Burn This Book” by Trevor Loudon:

“On July 17, 2018, Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota wrote Amazon CEO Jeffrey Bezos, demanding that his company censor books and other products by those deemed to be “hate groups” by the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center. He called for such materials still in Amazon warehouses to be “destroyed” over the next three months and an end to the company’s publication of similar “physical and digital materials.”

There is reason to believe that you are reading the impetus behind Keith Ellison’s call for book burning. In the course of a July 3rd interview with author Diana West on our nationally syndicated “Secure Freedom Radio” program, I mentioned that we would shortly publish a book about the Congressman’s ominous past and present ties to Marxist and Islamist groups and their agendas.

Since the hard left monitors our show assiduously, word of this publication may well have reached Mr. Ellison before the 17th. And, as the Center for Security Policy Press uses Amazon’s CreateSpace service to publish its many monographs and books, censoring such works – past, as well as future – could prevent readers from seeing this one. That is because the Center for Security Policy is one of the organizations the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has falsely characterized as a “hate group.” By pressing Amazon’s Bezos to use the SPLC as the arbiter of what content can be published or maintained in inventory, Rep. Ellison could achieve the censorship of CSP’s products without spedifying us as the target.

As this book by Trevor Loudon amply demonstrates, such stealthy subversiveness is the stock-in-trade of Keith Ellison. His associations dating back to his involvement with the Nation Islam as a student at Wayne State University and continuing to his present —and ongoing —involvement with Muslim Brotherhood fronts and his role as chairman of the radical House Progressive Caucus, Keith Ellison’s record is one of unbroken ties to extremists committed to subverting our country.“

This insight is all the more alarming in light of a dangerously mistaken, but widespread assumption: When an elected official in the United States swears an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, they are presumed to be truthfully saying they are able and willing to do that. Consequently, such representatives of the American people in the U.S. Congress are not subjected to the sort of background investigations aimed at confirming that assumption that is required of, for example, postal employees, securities personnel and school bus drivers.

Unfortunately, as author, filmmaker and national security expert Trevor Loudon documents exhaustively in this volume, Rep. Keith Ellison’s many and longstanding personal associations with groups openly hostile to the principles and even the existence of the U.S. Constitution, would likely make it impossible for him to to pass even the most cursory of security checks.”

Wow, I can think of nothing to add to that. Book is here in PDF form.

Also: Keith Ellison, who does NOT have a MN license to practice law, yet is running for MN Attorney General.

City’s Muddy Asset Forfeiture

The number of filings in Philadelphia is absurd. That is a racket much bigger than the Nigerian email scam. Only in this you don’t have to do anything to get cheated.

City Forced to Abolish Civil Asset Forfeiture and Pay Back Victims the Millions It Stole from Them

The innocent family that had their home seized by police through civil asset forfeiture fought back, and their victory will affect other residents for years to come.
Freedom Outpost

Philadelphia, PA – The city that has gained a reputation for the egregious civil asset forfeiture practices committed by its police department, will now be forced to dismantle the program altogether, as a result of a lawsuit filed by a family who had their home seized by police after their son was accused of a minor drug crime.

Residents who have been harmed by the Philadelphia Police department’s civil asset forfeiture practices could also receive part of $3 million in compensation. Markela and Chris Sourovelis initially filed a lawsuit in 2014 after their son was caught trying to sell $40 in heroin on the street.

The parents complied with the judge and took their son to a court-ordered rehabilitation treatment. But when they returned home, they found that police had locked them out of their house.

I’m sorry that you believe Mueller’s investigation is legitimate.

I’m sorry you think socialism is the answer to disunity.

Democrat Campaign Rhetoric

I scanned a few “up and coming” Democrat candidates for Congress and here is what I find. Caution: it is a murky picture. Very entertaining though.

As background, you’ve heard about new Democrats being recruited to run in largely Republcan held districts. Many of them touting military careers and many of them women.

In the last few weeks, districts who were Republican are considered “toss ups”. More recently, some are being relabeled now “leaning Democrat.” Right, I believe that.

When you look at their social media campaign statements you see similarities.

Well, one after another their statements read like a book of platitudes. No, not about current hot button issues but glowing terms. My sampling were not heavily campaigning. They did not seem to have layers of popularity and comments on their posts.

But those posts themselves, claiming the reason they were running, read eerily similar too. They didn’t tell you about their stand on issues. But like this one, it was personal. Well like this: “I’m running for Congress so that our children will have a brighter future and so that all our daughters will know that they can grow up to be and do whatever they dream.”

‘Hello’…. I mean your children had no hopes or dreams without you running? Wait, children have had those ideals and goals as long as I remember. Glad yours now have a brighter future only because you are running! What does that say? Well, kids have had those rosy ideals until 2009, when dreams took a nose dive. Now they are back?

They talk about about “shared values” and “moving the country forward.” What does that mean? I prefer an ash heap, myself. All undefined, vague terms to try to appeal to voters’ emotions and inspirations without much thought to what the words mean. You are supposed to know if you are a left wing progressive Democrat. And you do: against tax cuts, raising taxes, growing spending, cutting military spending. All of which is like caviar on a cracker to Democrats. “Come get it”. Free college, socialized medicine, single payer, Medicare for all, opening up the borders. Who can be against all that?

Another lofty word they are for, “equality”. So like we Republicans are for inequality, the more unequal the better. They want “affordable” things; like we want everything unaffordable. They actually support policies that make things less affordable. “Together, we’ll bring a sea change to Congress.” What kind of change, doing what? What will be different with you in Congress? Right, your children will finally have a bright future. “We know how vital our educators are to our communities.” (pandering to teachers – unions) We don’t even like teachers or value them. In fact, we see no use for them.

“We are fighting to keep dark money out of politics.” That’s popular. Naturally, a reference to Citizens United and reversing the Supreme Court decision. Hillary touted that in her campaign along with overturning the Heller decision. They use a complete script of progressive code words for which only Dems have a decoder. Dog whistles like their talk about hatred or hate speech. We are racists while they are, well, the good racists.

No election is complete today without sympathy for illegals. Say nothing about the crimes committed by illegals which impact Americans from coast to coast. Then there is the animus for law enforcement, ICE or border control. But of course they use the right statements to frame it. So they want people afraid of law enforcement and unsympathetic to cops being killed. They want to dehumanize law enforcement, along with anyone who works for the Trump administration. Amnesty is the bomb, “a path to citizenship” is the rage, from people who don’t much value US citizenship. And we are not exceptional. In fact, NY Governor Cuomo led the charge saying “America never was that great.”

Give a shout out for “justice,” especially the more radical candidates. The rest of us must want injustice. Except that we have a lot of injustice going on coming right from the Dep of Justice, but Dems see none of it nor do they care. As long as Deep State is in control Dems are happy. And as long as they are in control of Deep State. But “justice” talk is usually the segue for Resistance — sedition. That subversive obstruction is always a good thing for Dems to run on and support, for justice’s sake, when they do not control government.

Another popular favorite is ____ is against women… “”who stand to lose access to affordable birth control.” I wish I had a nickel every time I heard that bumper sticker phrase. It was popular against Kavanaugh, too. No one is losing access. “Affordable” is now a code word for free or almost free. Losing access, a guaranteed right, to free this or that. Like I’m losing access to a Mercedes 450 SL. I declare such access a “right.” Still, loosing access to something free is a popular notion. Affordable just translates to what they think they should not pay for.

Then there is the golden altar or calf of abortion, Planned Parenthood. Useful against Kavanaugh and campaigning. But I see nothing threatening Planned Parenthood’s status or Roe v. Wade. Nothing. Yet the great scare is on to “protect women’s reproductive health, rights” from invisible harm.” Personally, I’m opposed to women’s reproductive health.

They tell us “stay out of women’s sex organs” yet march in the streets with vagina costumes, condoms and protest wearing pussy hats. They live and breathe in women’s reproductive organs, at least in campaigns, and want them exhaustively legislated. How can killing babies be a stand for women’s reproductive health, or for healthcare? Just do not not legislate that. They yell about preserving lives by preserving abortion and planned parenthood. Planned Parenthoods are saving lots of lives, aren’t they?

Another habit Dems seem to have in common, these up and coming pretenders, is that they make the entire campaign about them not the people they are running to represent. Is that telling? It is not about the issues. And the kicker is the Democrats seem to eat it up. They could not care less, only that he/she is a card carrying socialism-pushing progressive. In fact, whatever he/she says is fine, as long as they are progressive. They will vote with the Marxist left anyway, so what does it matter what they do or say?

So which is worse: the platitudes of vague ideals or what they do say about the issues? San Fran Nan called MS-13 members a spark of divinity. It contradicts her staunch support and protection for abortion. Does a spark of divinity only apply to gang-bangers? Aborted lives must be much lower on the chain than even MS-13 gang members.

But this is getting long, the hour is getting late. The contradictions and vague platitudes remain, popular only to the Left. What outcome can we expect from this soup for fools?

DNC Melltdown

As midterm elections start to heat up, with all the primaries going off in every state, you might see enthusiasm among Democrats. You might even think they are the ones with the unified momentum. Well, you may be wrong if you do. I’m not spinning it, I don’t need to.

Here’s why, first. Take a good look at the bare cupboards in the DNC. Then take a glance at their big funders. You know who they are: Tom Steyer to George Soros and a basket of others. It is not as important who they are as what they are. They are the hair on fire, far-left radicals that drive the Party. But more importantly, drive any base. DNC is out.

–(Open Secrets)———-Total Raised——–Total Spent——Cash on Hand——–Debts
Democratic Party——–$510,732,825—-$405,218,739—-$139,922,483—-$11,902,719
Republican Party——–$630,554,660—-$426,703,807—-$150,139,527—–$1,650,056
Demo National Cmte —$110,040,264—-$112,645,182——$9,185,284——-$6,353,378
Repub National Cmte –$213,054,677—-$187,695,079—–$50,687,610————$0

And now there is a fairly new big player, not really new. The ACLU has been stepping in, or should I say kicking in to drive many races. So they are in more than ever. We are literally now running against ACLU and Planned Parenthood.Chelsea tipped their hand. Twist Roe into economics, if your economic message is as vacuous as your political one.

But then look at the DNC coffers. They aren’t just empty, they are in big debt. Not only are they on the financial verge of bankruptcy but the Party is bankrupt on ideas as well. They still blame Obama who left the Party in shambles. Then Hillary. There is very little cash on hand and a lot of debt. What do these factors mean?

Enter my opinion and just that. They will manage because they always find a way to flow some money. However, what is happening is the big funders, i.e. special funders and special interests will fill the gap. People are not funding the party, instead putting gas in the tanks of candidates and causes. Money is flowing around the DNC. Read again, Democrats are not funding their own Party. It is all but irrelevant, at least as any central Party apparatus. By design? I doubt it. They just cannot fund it. And who would put much confidence in it after the way it worked in 2016? So they are going around it. No credibility is telling.

Don’t just take my word for it, listen to others make the case. A WaPo opinion piece by Ed Rogers in June described the dire Democrat Party conditions as unraveling. (I refuse to call it Democratic) And now good reason to use that term instead of their preferred one.

In the meantime, the Democratic Party appears to be dismantling itself. Outside groups are fighting their own fights, donors are being pulled away, and potential Democratic presidential candidates show no sign of being party-builders. If you believe in the two-party system, you know this isn’t good. Party discipline has eroded, and that makes it harder to govern once a party is elected to power. We need reforms that empower parties and candidates and diminish the influence of deep-pocketed plutocrats and narrowly focused interest groups.

Well then, is the fat lady warming up her vocal chords? All he can do is make the case for the “two party system”. But is it really a two party system anymore, I mean really? Regardless of how the DNC finances look, is it half of a two party system? I don’t think so. Even the author points to the non cohesive and unconventional funding. What does that say? I don’t see a party unity. It’s a grab bag of mostly socialist ideas bickering for turf. While Bernie might be ecstatic, when the dog finally catches the car what happens?

I think they have big problems. Maybe they are all smoking some real good stuff over there but how about the unity and love? It’s not there. While the Republicans are unified, to some greater degree on issues and a platform, Democrats are flailing about making a lot of noise, with no central theme or purpose. Many years ago I would have prayed for this scenario, a disunited party and bad if any leadership. Worse yet for them, seems no one can reign in the Party or their dire finances. It’s broke. But the people of the party are broke apart too. The screaming and yelling make up for, or paper over, the empty shell that remains of a party. There’s nothing there.

They can trot out the Alinsky stuff, bring out the Marxist ideas, plug in their socialist values, get fired up for a few key races, do a few marches and fundraisers; but in the end, what do you really have? A hot mess that’s what. The great divide in overdrive.

It would be a mistake to try to run an election against an empty bankruted party. What do you focus on? There is nothing there? Call it what it is. Before you get too excited, we still run against the socialist party they are, only we are not running against a party structure. You are basically running against all these splintered special interest groups. Though the only thing that does tie any of it together is a socialist agenda. That is where the energy is. You can no longer say or talk to the moderate, sane ones, or adults in the room. peel off a few. There are none. Everyone is just out for their thing, whatever bad acid trip it is. But they are a long way from any resemblance to unity, virtually on anything.

Sure they agree on issues here and there, but not on direction or a central vision. They want to abolish ICE and do something to cops and hate Trump. They are the anti-party now. Their resistance is all that defines them or unites them. That may be where the solidarity is but there’s a random hodgepodge everywhere else, including in funding which does matter. That funding is a collection of special interests. You could call them a party of special interests, but even that wouldn’t be really fair. Even special interest have more cohesive unity than that. The people are not really united. It’s a giant illusion. We shouldn’t fall for thinking that it is some solidly united party. What is missing?

Any defining leadership – MIA. Nancy Pelosi recently made statements to reinforce her leadership but then she blamed the press and media for trying to divide them. Wow, a tell that is. Blaming the press now? Bad when you have to blame the strongest allies of the Party. And media has drifted along its own far left course. Nancy may be on an isle all by herself. Does she dare take on media? She can’t. They are all she has to try to control it.

In the last almost two months, I see nothing that has improved or changed for Democrats. It’s still a party of misfits. Interesting that this whole meltdown happens at this time, when Republicans are unified in issues and a message with Trump having consolidated his approval. It looks like a time to close the deal. I mean any questions have been resolved and Party unity high, we now know what he can do, we’ve seen it. All we need is the how. And that is where the midterms come in, with a new Supreme Justice on the way, and tax cuts in the rear view, we have a good economic message. So there are problems, so what? There are always problems. But this kind of unity can’t be wasted at such a time when our enemy (opponents) have none.

Put it this way, politically, the trends on the other side are not positive. They are negative. And what they are really running on is all negative. Who can get behind that with any enthusiasm? I know, never underestimate the Party of Stalin. But Republicans seem to have found their voice, finally, and the fog is lifting. They’re perpetually underestimated.

The fork is ready….the lady is standing in the wings getting anxious. Someone could say but in the end, the Democrats always unify. Except on what this time? There’s nothing cohesive there, like their bank accounts.

RTDNA calls on members to join campaign defending press freedom

August 13, 2018 | RTDNA [*emphasis mine]

The Radio Television Digital News Association and its Voice of the First Amendment Task Force are calling on our more than 1,200 members and their broadcast and digital news outlets to join the Boston Globe and more than 100 other local newspapers across the country on Aug. 16 in a coordinated editorial response to attacks from the President on the media.

“We urge our members to join the effort on Thursday, Aug. 16 by dedicating airtime, publishing an online editorial or sharing information via social media platforms that speaks to your viewers and listeners about the role we play in preserving the public’s right and need to know, in a government for and by the people,” said Dan Shelley, RTDNA’s executive director.

“The President has ratcheted up his anti-press contempt. Journalists are now the ‘disgusting fake news,’ and according to one presidential tweet, we also ‘cause Wars [sic].’ This rhetoric has contributed to many of the president’s supporters lashing out harshly against members of the White House press corps and other journalists. It must stop before more journalists are hurt or worse,” states Shelley.

Today, RTDNA, its members and the other broadcast and digital journalists it represents stand in solidarity with the dozens of American newspapers that have joined the Boston Globe campaign to publish editorials pushing back against the notion that responsible journalism is “fake news” and that journalists are the “enemy of the American people.”

Please contact RTDNA at pressfreedom@rtdna.org if your station plans to participate. For more information on how to explain the public service your news organization regularly provides, please see this list of resources for rebuilding trust with news consumers and this list of questions to consider as a newsroom.

So it is a campaign defending press freedom. Oh goody, a special day for that.

Instead of what they claim, this is a dedicated day to attack Trump, feel free as if they do not already do so daily. So what is the special occasion about this day? That’s what they have done since Trump won.

But my personal issue with this goes much deeper. First of all, when press refers to the First Amendment, they liberally mean “freedom of press.” However, there are other freedoms in the first amendment. Just that to press, this freedom is the only one they really give a damn about. Secondly, it is offensive that they lay claim to the First Amendment as their own. But that is the only part they want people to care about and keep beating us over the head about.

Yes, I understand the need for a Free Press. It is absurd I have to make that disclaimer.

I will take the opportunity to mention another favorite talking point of theirs — meaning the press in general. The claim is Trump declared war on the first amendment. Again, by first amendment they are referring to press. (misleading to say the least.) Or some even say he declared war on the “free press.” What nonsense. I have never seen another president more media friendly than Trump.

This bothers me why? It is mostly this “war on or against the first amendment” mantra that gets me. As the old line goes: “what we have here is a failure to communicate.” With all that is going on, there is not a war on the press or first amendment. It is a battle within the First Amendment. But it has always been there. There has always been some friction within the 1st Amend. The press is only one of 5 freedoms contained therein: Freedom of religion, speech, press, petition of grievance, and assembly. I see press is only one fifth of that. Technically, you can say press may have some tangential influence in others.

As to the “war” as they call it within the first amendment; it is press declaring war on the people’s freedoms. Press has no ownership of or control over the First Amendment.

Despite how I really feel about this brouhaha over the press, I will give them this honored day…… to make a joke out of themselves, as they have done for over 10 years.

What an idea!

We could have had special “defense of the first amendment days” back in 2009-2010. Remember the Tea Parties? But we did not get “special day” kudos for defending free speech. We got the royal condemnation for it, and viciously attacked. For all of our organizing skill and peaceful efforts, we had the long arm of the IRS attack dogs sicked on us. It was labeled traitorous to the US Constitution in media. Talk about Orwellian.

Did we get a special assist or atta-boy from the media/press for standing up and defending the First Amendment? Just the opposite. We were attacked for “hiding behind the first amendment.” But it was press that was doing the attacking. They declared war on free speech and dissent, from both ends of Pennsylvania Ave. and in press and media.

So what does that tell us, other than the fact that the “press” doesn’t give a damn about the first amendment? It tells us they have chosen sides. And they chose to go to war against the American people, just for standing up for their first amendment rights.

So for this dedicated “defending press day” I offer them a peace sign minus the index finger. Of course they really don’t need me or anyone else to stand up for them, they have the power of the press. And chose to use that power against the American people. What were they “standing up” for back then? Oh, it was for big-government, for the power of the White House, the power in Congress. Remember their stories of outrage that people yelled at Congressmen, especially black members, when the Democrat caucus paraded in front of Tea Parties to fabricate fake news about us. Then press ran that narrative lie into the ground. We were also labeled racists then. Media assisted.

Excuse me for not having any outrage that the press is victimized. Give me a break. Again, press made huge choices long ago and declared war within the first amendment, against the people. You didn’t just stand idly by, you were the enforcers. Even Ben Rhodes admitted the Obama administration had media, press eating out of their hand. Because, at that point, free press sycophants, you were no longer a “free press.”

Is it time for a ‘voice of free speech task force’? — at least I’m being honest.
See what they did there: “Voice of the First Amendment Task Force”?

[Globe]- The Globe initiative comes amid the president’s repeated verbal attacks on journalists, calling mainstream press organizations “fake news” and “the enemy of the American people.” Tensions came to a boil in early August when CNN reporter Jim Acosta walked out of a press briefing after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders refused to refute Trump’s “enemy of the people” comments.

‘‘We are not the enemy of the people,’’ Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor of the Globe’s opinion page, told the AP last week.

2016 Trump Tower Meeting Looks Increasingly Like a Setup by Russian and Clinton Operatives

By Lee Smith, RealClearInvestigations
August 13, 2018

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between high-ranking members of the Republican presidential campaign staff and a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties remains the cornerstone of claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.

A growing body of evidence, however, indicates that the meeting may have been a setup — part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials. This view, that the real collusion may have taken place among those who arranged the meeting rather than the Trump officials who agreed to attend it, is supported by two disparate lines of evidence pulled together for the first time here: newly released records and a pattern of efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia. …/

But Mueller could never stumble across that pertinent information. Or the fact that Fusion was working with the Kremlin to overturn sanctions — against the Magnitsky Act. It would be too damning to the Democrats and DNC. ‘Quick, we need a diversion’….. this week if possible. After all, Mueller is tied to this cabal.

In case anyone is still keeping Russia collusion score: that puts intel ops, FBI, DOJ, Mueller, Clinton, GPS, Steele, DNC et al on the same side as …..the Kremlin and Putin. Collusion Party anyone? 😎 And I’ll just leave out McCain for now.

With all this known, just what would Hillary have done had she won the election? I don’t think there is much of a question about it, given her character and past.

This was never a Trump issue or scandal, but is yet another Hillary Clinton scandal that she had a whole lot of help with.

What Do Antifa Protestors Say?

‘Do Him Like Gaddafi’ — Antifa Protesters Caught On Video Threatening To Kill The President

08/13/2018
Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large | Daily Caller

One year ago, President Trump told the American people that there was “violence on both sides” during the Charlottesville riots.

Those riots pitted neo-Nazis marching in the city against Antifa and other progressive groups. The powder keg was lit and both sides committed acts of violence against each other. The riots left many injured and one activist lost her life when awhite supremacists rammed his car into a crowd. Trump was attacked for the “both sides” comment in the wake of the violence.

However, in the year since, the Left’s violent tactics have been on full display in multiple arenas across the country. Riots and death threats have targeted Trump officials, ICE agents, police officers and children. A former Bernie Sanders staffer opened fire on a group of Republican congressmen practicing baseball, seriously wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

Marc Lamont Hill gushes over terrorist cop-killer

Marc Lamont Hill demonstrates just what is wrong with the Left — or Marxists in general. They leave an ugly trail of death and hatred wherever they go.

Temple Prof & CNN Commentator Marc Lamont Hill Touts Cop-Killing Terrorist as ‘Freedom Fighter’

Breitbart | Tom Ciccotta 07-18-2018

Temple University Professor and CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill published a glowing Instagram post this week for cop-killing terrorist Assata Shakur.

 

Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, who is also a CNN commentator, published a bizarre tribute to convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, a member of the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist list, this week. Shakur, a former member of the Black Liberation Army, was convicted of first-degree murder of State Trooper Werner Foerster during a shootout in New Jersey in 1973.

Thinking about Assata Shakur on her 71st birthday. She wrote the second book that changed (and saved) my life. She taught me about the value and power of Freedom Dreams. She showed me the beauty of struggle. And she proved that “a wall is just a wall. and nothing more at all. It can be broken down.” I pray for her continued safety and protection. I continue to work to demonstrate her innocence. And I implore the State to stop prosecuting an unjust and unfair campaign against one of our most treasured Freedom Fighters. Thank you Mama Assata. Wishing you 100 more years!

Shakur has lived in Cuba since 1984, despite multiple attempts by the US government to bring her back.

Marc Lamont Hill is a Professor of Media Studies and Urban Education at Temple University. He has worked in media with BET News and CNN. In 2016, Marc Lamont Hill expressed support for the Green Party, adding that he would prefer a Donald Trump presidency to a Hillary Clinton one so that the left could build a “real” movement.

“I would rather have Trump be president for four years and build a real left-wing movement that can get us what we deserve as a people, than to let Hillary be president and we stay locked in the same space where we don’t get what we want,” he said.

He drew so much inspiration from this cop-killer. Yeah, hard to romanticize cop-killers. Freedom Fighters? They are eating on the wrong side of the mushroom again.

Screw his position about Trump, just watch all the Lefties come out of the sewer to defend this. Judging by his following and number of likes, he is not alone. He has lots of company.

According to one of his hashtags, he seems to think of her as a political prisoner. Talking about her birthday is so touching. Hill said “She showed me the beauty of struggle.” There’s that wrong side of the mushroom thing again.
