Comrade de Blasio Does It Again

At the first Democrat dumb-dumb debate, Bill de Blasio issued this economic decree:

We need to “break up corporations when they don’t serve our democracy.”

That tells you all you need to know about the state of the Left in America. And that actually passes for standard fare with Democrats.

Explicit National Threat

Well, Hillary just issued a clear threat to the future of America and generation unborn. From California, where else?

“There is too much at stake not to speak out about the things that matter most,” Clinton said Monday night at the University of California-Davis.

“Some of those people online and elsewhere who were saying like ‘You know, we kind of wish she’d just wouldn’t say anything anymore’ and ‘we kinda just hope she disappears’ have not been following me for the last 40 years, I can tell you that much. I am not going anywhere other than right into the middle of the debate about the future.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/hillary-clinton-i-am-not-going-anywhere-other-than-right-into-the-middle-of-the-debate-about-the-future/article/2637000

Ah oh, that just sent shivers down spines of people and babies still in the womb.

Except that the debate about the future should in no way include any Clintons.

Haven’t they slimmed our past enough already? So old Clintons never slither away, as long as there’s still money to vacuum up on the way. That was a threat!

For someone who couldn’t be found for days on end in the campaign, and went many months without a press conference, she is suddenly everywhere in interviews, TV, appearances, talk shows, book stores, auditoriums, universities, fundraisers, Hollywood block parties. Now airdropping into future America. Fetuses should be petrified.

It’s nothing new. That is what she and her Planned Parenthood allies have been doing for decades: robbing America’s future and posterity. Grim Reapers.

MSNBC on Rigged Elections

From the oddest source on the topic, in MSM, even Morning Joe attacks phony media hype about Trump’s reference to rigged elections. What a collection of truth.

Well, and they didn’t even mention the Al Franken race that went on for how long? (I think he gets some kind of record)

MSNBC for one said it. They decided right away they didn’t want to die on that lie.

Trump May Skip Fox Debate for Own Town Hall

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump might skip Thursday’s debate on Fox News Channel and hold his own televised town hall at the same time if the network doesn’t drop Megyn Kelly from its team of moderators, his campaign manager tells New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman

Trump has been calling on Fox News to drop Kelly, who is scheduled to moderate with two other Fox anchors, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier. The trio moderated the first GOP debate of the season, in which Kelly and Trump sparred over a question about his treatment of women. …./

In lieu of Fox debate he may do his own Town Hall. No statement from Megyn Kelly, “yours truly,” about the news. Or shall we now call it “The Yours Truly Debate?”

Trump brought the juice

All I know is Trump connected and turned the negative of the “anger” issue, as they call it, into a positive, effective attack. In his reply, he connected the RNC, establishment, the left, Obama, and Nikki Haley, and the Left’s talking point in one swoop.

After Obama SOTUS, SC Gov. Nikki Haley said:

‘During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation,’ she warned.

When asked about that, Trump owned the anger and the issue in saying sure he is angry. Better still the supporters of Trump are fed up and deservedly angry. Are Dems the only ones who rally to anger? Who channel their anger in political campaigns? I’ve said if you are not angry now then you must be comatose. The left does what they are doing and we are supposed to be subdued? Really, what strategy is that? No need to list all the reasons.

So he proudly owned that issue and turned the whole matter on its head.

The anger juice goes on.

Debate theatrics? Live or Memorex

I held off and thought about the last debate and let it soak in, but I just wanted to throw this out there.

Now I still wonder if maybe that performance by CNBC may have been planned that way? I mean it is sort of odd that it was supposed to be on the economy, which happens to be Republicans strong suit. Taxation and budget as well. I can almost hear someone say “we don’t want to make them look good.”

It was on the heels of the Benghazi hearing with Hillary. Paybacks you know. Then I wonder if they’d stoop that low to create an ordeal over it and have theatrics so they could blame it all on Republicans? Well, I never put anything past the Left or the media.

Would they think it through to consider hurting themselves and counting it worth it just to attack the Republicans? They still got the ad revenue, either way. Is it possible this thing was planned? Maybe not our whole reaction it got but in a way I am starting to think there was some premeditation there. No candidate in particular, but toward Republicans generally to set them back.

They knew there would be another NBC debate, and this could have been a setup for that? I can’t say for sure but it is a question I consider. A hit job or a mishap? Either one take your pick, same result.

Media meltdown on debate proves bias

It didn’t take long for the headlines to surface. Drudge was having a hard time tracking them.

Republican debate runs off the rails turns into all-out war as Donald Trump bashes John Kasich, Jeb Bush hits his protege Marco Rubio, and EVERYONE hammers CNBC’s moderators for losing control

Daily Mail

By David Martosko, Us Political Editor For Dailymail.com In Boulder, Colorado

  • CNBC hosts progressively lost control of the event
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz turned openly hostile, accusing them all of being Democrats intent on damaging the GOP field
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie soon piled on the network
  • Donald Trump wrapped up his night by claiming he had strong-armed them into shortening the debate ‘so we could get the hell out of here’
  • ‘CNBC should be ashamed of how this debate was handled,’ Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus said

Wednesday’s Republican debate turned into a steel cage match in Boulder, Colorado as Donald Trump tangled with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called on Marco Rubio – his political protege – to resign his U.S. Senate seat.

As the CNBC hosts progressively lost control of the event, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz turned openly hostile, accusing them all of being Democrats intent on damaging the GOP field.

Correction it wasn’t about them losing control of the debate. They weren’t organized either though. It was a disaster of gotcha questions. Then came the all important one about fantasy football. The fantasy was about some modicum of objective moderators.

Even Reince Priebus threw out the criticism on CNN right afterward.

According to ABC 7 Denver, AP: (play by play coverage)

The chairman of the Republican National Committee says CNBC “should be ashamed” of how its moderators handled the third GOP presidential debate.

Reince Priebus (ryns PREE’-bus) says that the moderators did a disservice to their network, the candidates and the viewers. The two hours were dominated by candidates complaining that the moderators’ questions were hostile and based on inaccurate premises.

Priebus is calling the questioning “unfortunate” and says he will “fight to ensure future debates allow a more robust exchange.”

Well, when even Priebus gets his attitude on, it must be pretty obvious.  A venue more reminiscent of pro-wrestling, the moderators got into the fray breaking the one major rule of journalism: not to become the story.  But it won’t matter because the Dems will spin it as sore losers not wanting to answer tough questions. Hey, we saw what Dems did with the Hillary hearing, masters of propaganda….disinformation.

Economy on the docket

So Wednesday night’s debate is supposedly on the economy.

CNBC is live blogging here.

It won’t be hard to beat Obama’s economy. Count the ways. That should be a win win for the Republicans but we’ll see how they, and CNBC, manage to divert any gains.

Let’s see, how could this go bad? (not that I’m not optimistic, just reserved)

I guess it leaves Lindsey Graham out of the mix… er maybe not the ‘mixing’.

Trump to Iowa: “What the hell are you people doing to me?

Black Lives Matter seek debate forum

Washington Post reports on the BLM appeal to both parties for a debate style forum:

“The lessons of history are clear, and instructive for us right now. It is both protest and policy work that will get us the win, and we need every single possible strategy at our disposal in order to see real change,” Packnett [BLM organizer spokesman] said. “So I think we have an opportunity to be creative here in how we engage presidential candidates in the same way that our movement has been creative in how we have protested and created peaceful but necessary disruption around the country.”

Creative, in the same way they protest? Shutting down malls and townhall meetings, blocking traffic, storming police stations, just for a few of their creative efforts.

They since have been told by both Parties that the debate schedules are full and that they should have a townhall forum to showcase their issues. Talks continue but the DNC said it would sponsor such an event. RNC said it would be open to participating.

When they stand on their proud uber-radical protest tactics, disrupting and shouting down any dissent, calling for death to cops, and interrupting anyone’s lives they can, they still want people to support a public forum for their rhetoric. What happens if others, say more rational voices, protest them and their forum? I don’t suppose that is on their agenda.

What is pretty ironic is that they don’t want to debate. Their tactics and strategy oppose that. There is no other perspective but theirs. If you don’t get that then look at those they protested and how they do it. Now they say they want a debate?

First, they should debate themselves on why the cop killing is a common theme endorsed by their platform? But you never hear them address that every time they call for “pigs in a blanket…fry ’em like bacon.” Yet they want to mainstream their organization and expect everyone to respect and embrace their organization. Really?

Of course if you don’t endorse them you’re a de facto target. Dems, in their endless tolerance to all things radical, will not utter a peep to them. As long as they vote between calling for “death to cops,” what’s the problem? And as long as they vote correctly, which is pretty much a given. I suppose Cair will want a debate next. BLM chants death to cops but the DOJ and homeland security see white supremacists and right-wing “racist” groups as the biggest terrorist threat. (next to Global Warming) No public forum for them.

Trump letter to CNN prez

What ad revenue, rates!? They should take him up on the offer, win win.
And if not, it will make them disliked even more.

Debate with Jeb

We were treated to some answers to questions by whom MSM, Clintonistas and establishment seem to think is our nominee.(we’re only going through the superficial motions) I highlighted two of them, both show his arrogance. Both have that air of inevitability hanging over them.

I guess it would have been appropriate to have some music accompanying his answers and bobble-head gestures.(click for for effects). It must be lost on Jeb that the gangster Godfather comparison does not actually help his dynasty sales pitch.

BAIER: Governor Bush, you have insisted that you’re your own man. You say you have a life experience uniquely your own. Not your father’s, not your brother’s.

But there are several opponents on this stage who get big- applause lines in early voting states with this line: quote, “the last thing the country needs is another Bush in the Oval Office.”

So do you understand the real concern in this country about dynastic politics?

 

BUSH: Absolutely, I do, and I’m gonna run hard, run with heart, and run to win.

I’m gonna have to earn this. Maybe the barrier — the bar’s even higher for me. That’s fine.

I’ve got a record in Florida. I’m proud of my dad, and I’m certainly proud of my brother. In Florida, they called me Jeb, because I earned it.

I cut taxes every year, totaling $19 billion. We were — we had — we balanced every budget. We went from $1 billion of reserves to $9 billion of reserves.

We were one of two states that went to AAA bond rating.

They keep — they called me Veto Corleone. Because I vetoed 2,500 separate line-items in the budget. (APPLAUSE)

(Too bad he can’t veto his dynastic ambitions with such gusto. He understands those concerns? Help me.)

I am my own man. I governed as a conservative, and I govern effectively. And the net effect was, during my eight years, 1.3 million jobs were created. We left the state better off because I applied conservative principles in a purple state the right way, and people rose up.

 

Mod: Governor Bush, you released a new plan this week on illegal immigration focusing on enforcement, which some suggest is your effort to show that you’re not soft on that issue. I want to ask you about a statement that you made last year about illegal immigrants. And here’s what you said. “They broke the law, but it’s not a felony, it’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family.” Do you stand by that statement and do you stand by your support for earned legal status?

BUSH: I do. I believe that the great majority of people coming here illegally have no other option. They want to provide for their family.

(So he stands by his “act of love” statement. They have “no other option” which makes them robots who just have no choice — victims of their circumstance, victims of love… I have to stop before I get sick)

But we need to control our border. It’s not — it’s our responsibility to pick and choose who comes in. So I — I’ve written a book about this and yet this week, I did come up with a comprehensive strategy that — that really mirrored what we said in the book, which is that we need to deal with E-Verify, we need to deal with people that come with a legal visa and overstay. We need to be much more strategic on how we deal with border enforcement, border security. We need to eliminate the sanctuary cities in this country. It is ridiculous and tragic… (APPLAUSE) … that people are dying because of the fact that — that local governments are not following the federal law.

There’s much to do. And I think rather than talking about this as a wedge issue, which Barack Obama has done now for six long years, the next president — and I hope to be that president — will fix this once and for all so that we can turn this into a driver for high sustained economic growth. And there should be a path to earned legal status… (BUZZER NOISE) BUSH: — for those that are here. Not — not amnesty, earned legal status, which means you pay a fine and do many things over an extended period of time.

Okay, Jeb — if that’s what they call you because you “earned it”? — or Veto Corleone —  maybe you should enlighten people on what you mean by “turn this  [illegal immigration] into a driver for high sustained growth.” There must be details we commoners are not aware of that are not visible to this point in our border crisis, amnesty disaster. You’d think all the benefits would have revealed themselves by now. If immigration was such a net gain, then we’d have double digit growth.

“I do” and “I do,”  he must have thought he was taking some wedding vow. We aren’t so impressed. Meanwhile, the Godfather explanation or justification is not working for me. If he thinks calling himself Jeb evades being a Bush, he must be in sad shape. There just is no answer for dynasty except “No!”

Trump Fox hit parade keeps rolling

Ordinarily I might not be as critical of Megyn Kelly. But then there is nothing ordinary, really, anymore. This is not an ordinary election, these are not ordinary times, these are not ordinary people involved either. The circumstances here are not ordinary at all. It is serious stuff too.

But then as I criticized Candice Crowley for her moderator failures, I also am critical of Megyn Kelly’s. Fair is fair. She sensationalized the program and turned it more into reality TV than an episode of Celebrity Apprentice. Or maybe that was the role she thought she was playing? She begs for that comparison. The only reason the record number of people/viewers means anything is the heightened interest in the process. But not to Fox. Maybe Fox did well with sponsors, ads and eyeballs, or bottom lines. Good for them. Cha-ching cha-ching! But that doesn’t change the fundamental purpose of the event. Then they doubled down on that theme afterward by high-fiving each other.

That is just inappropriate behavior — no matter how well the event went or not. We had the coverage of Katrina non-stop. We had the Gulf War coverage, originally in 91-92 Even that was not sensationalized this way, as a historic major achievement. Need I mention 9/11? We didn’t see this much self-congratulation over those. No, instead they, Fox, became an inseparably integrated part of the story — a major one. Even the CNN Crowley incident, and their defense of her, was not this sensationalized by their own network.

Media covered natural disasters, riots, trials and OJ Simpson. Yet this was over the top, especially concerning a serious debate in above serious times. They turned it into their personal reality side show. Ironic that Trump was at the center of it. If they did want to cover all the candidates, with a modicum of equality, they failed focusing their attention on Trump and then themselves — personally and as a news organization. They put themselves front and center. They over-engineered it.

Then Fox complains about the viewers’ outcry after, as another news story. Poor Fox victims. It was not just one question or the one answer, it was laced through with the same sensational theme. And we don’t really need extra sensationalizing in this current reality. We have quite enough already. Then to turn that all into some success for Fox, I don’t understand that logic.

I think we are witnessing a media meltdown. When they can’t cover a major event like this without turning it into some side-freak show, then we are in a tailspin. Instead of discussing solutions to problems, they are busy compounding more layers of problems on top, mediopolizing. We evidently can’t even have the semblance of an objective process. We expect it from much of lamestream, Fox has just gone the way of the limousine media. Yet, its funny that their big problem is Trump. After South Carolina in 2012 you would have thought they would have been self-conscious of that. No, rather they played it up into a reality circus.(who knows where their research came from) Is viewer numbers and their TV personalities all they care about? Winners – Fox, at what cost? Losers – we the people, especially conservatives and Republicans. But P/C will rule with Democrats. They pander to Dems so they can still get interviews from them.

On a previous post Lafayette Angel came up with an idea of doing debates ourselves. That’s a heck of an idea. I could see conservatives doing that — not like CPAC or summit — it seems possible and attractive. Go around them. Then I had the thought it really wouldn’t affect media because they would critique it how they always do anyway. Just that they would not control the process. And why can’t we do focus groups, too? I think Lafayette Angel has something there. I’d like to say, “media, you’re fired!”

If Trump offended someone, then Fox broke their heart over objectivity. So they didn’t see this coming, like 10 miles away? Dumbass award goes to Fox.

Debate: Shake and Bait Questions

Seems nothing new came in the debate. All recycled information we already new. (far as I’m concerned)

The gotcha didn’t get-cha squat for media head hunters.

But one issue I really take issue with. There are many but one suffices since they used it on multiple candidates. They quoted one person to ask another person to respond. Yes, I understand the objective to create back and forth. However, everyone missed the perfect opportunity to say from the start that “those are another persons words, not mine. If you want me to respond to their words, why not ask me about my own words. Ask them about their words.”

Okay another one was asking certain questions to certain candidates. I think it was “micro” session or something. (micro BS) A bit unfair to make it so personal with so many candidates, some of whom would like to respond to it.

The explosive back and forth between Christie and Paul. Well, inside baseball, really. There was bad blood between them from way back. It was largely due to Christie’s persistent penchant for attacking conservatives rather than Democrat progressives.

Of course, it is only my opinion and 2 cents.

Was Joe making a viusual point?

 


Maybe Biden had a real point, like that Clint Eastwood skit with the “empty chair” for Obama. And what might that be?

Well, he laughed through most of the debate weaving in and out of foreign policy flames. Maybe that is how they’ve come to view their policy of nuttiness too? At least he can have a laugh over it.

I guess that might be apropos considering the chaotic foreign policy. And then Panetta claimed recent attacks in Afghanistan were the Taliban’s “last gasp” When it comes to numbers in the economy at home or Obama’s dismal record – or lack of one – we’ve come to expect spin and distortions. But now they are spinning and lying about foreign policy too, which is supposed to be their forte’.

Obama said the Benghazi terrorist attack was a “bump in the road” (I wonder if it was a speed bump… along the highway on their victory tour?) Then their first response to the attack was blame a video, or the guy who made it, and protests. They continue to deny facts about what happened in Libya.

So in hindsight leave it to Joe to pass it off and laugh about any idea of being accountable for the consequences of their policies. Biden called criticisms a bunch of “stuff”.

He said as they learned more facts about the incident they changed their assessment. But the state department said it was never pushing that video excuse. Well, funny no one could stop Obama from riding the video excuse into the ground. He went to the UN to mention the video seven times. Then they spent 70K dollars on an ad about the video.

Now Carney is making it clear that the issues involving security at embassies are handled at the State Department. Are they getting ready to throw Hillary under the bus? Maybe Biden had a more personal reason for laughing so much.

Say it ain’t so, Joe

Changing the Dynamics

 

Remember Kerry’s infamous statement, after firing his campaign manager, that he was “changing the dynamics”.

What’s ironic now that Romney won the debate is that Kerry was Obama’s debate coach. Is that hillarious?

All bets are off and apparently those early celebration plans for Obama will be put on hold, with the Kolbe beef order. Everyone can have a bad night. But comparatively how bad? He told us after the attack on our embassador in Libya that they had a “bad day” loosing 4 people. I’ll bet to Obama that day did not compare to his evening in Colorado. What a shame he is probably a lot more concerned about this night than that “day”, enough to change his itinerary a little.

Obama always was a demogogue and idelogue, nothing more. The agent of change is not really the change agent. Surprise. “Mr Obama, you are now entering reality. We will be landing in a few moments. Fasten your seatbelt, you will experience heavy turbulance and a very rough landing.” (you may want to put your head between your knees and brace yourself too)

Even throwing out a life line for 100 thousand new teachers could not save him. I particularly liked Mitt’s use of the phrase “trickle down government”. It was a grand slam for which Obama has no response.

And despite stealing more speaking time than Mitt from early on, about 4 min total, it could not save his defenseless record. All the extra talk could not help. It is unexplainable. Then he threw out a Hail Mary to Bill Clinton who could not protect him. That was a classic example of sophistry. He attempted to claim that merely putting tax rates back to what they were under Clinton would recreate the economic windfall of those years. This is equivilent to telling the patient to click his heels three times and wish himself well.

So trying to recreate the effects of a booming economy will cause one. Gravity will now be reversed. Except for one thing: that was a completely different economy than now, minus a whole lot of our national debt. Clinton had the good fortune of a tech bubble where Obama has a debt bubble, which cannot continue forever. But he’s still blowing it up. If you looked up “specious” in the dictionary, this should be the example.

Still, it made for entertainment. Seeing Obama call out the Hollyweird crowd to campaign for him was a great trailer. Maybe they will soon realize what Obama meant by “all in”. Then they have to get the hang of how it works. When you say “forward” you are supposed to be looking and thinking backward, say toward Clinton…or anywhere except to reality. Just keep repeating the word “forward” while Obama talks about the past. And when Obama talks about saving Medicare he means cutting payments to providers, to plug the giant sucking sound in ObamaCare. Where’s Ross Perot when you really need him?

50 ways to ignore the failures

Actually there are more than that.

 


There are endless ways the left stream media and liberals can ignore Obama’s many failures. From his own promises to the national security of America, lib-progs are always looking for ways to creatively dismiss any of Obama’s failures and mistakes. So when videos and tapes surface of the real Oama campaigning for dedistribution or playing race monger, it never fails they have some way of calling it irrelevant. They are quite adept at that. It is not just passiive ignorance. They don’t just ignore it but lamestream media will volunteer excuses.

It’s more like how many ways can they ignore them before election day? Obama is in a blame-free zone. No matter what he does, now until election is free from any accountability. Scary, just think of all the things he could do with an unlimited free pass. He knows it and counts on it. This is only a sample of what is to come in a second term if his luck holds. Not that there ever was any accountability for this guy. He skates by even mocking attempts to hold him or his administration accountable.

If anything, it is we the people who get lectured. We go lectured about his faulty qualifications. We got lectured when he declared a local police department “acted stupidly”. We got lectured on racism after Obama engaged in race-based politics.(new videos onfirm it) Recently we got lectured on not making disparaging remarks about Islam’s prophet, while Muslims set the Middle East ablaze and terrorists killed 4 Americans in Libya. Must be the people’s fault. When he declared war on the Catholic Church and the Christian faith, it was the “GOP’s war on women” and it was Christians’ intolerance that was at fault. We see how this works.

He can do whatever he wants and we’re to blame, especially when he starts the battle with his sinister motives. He’s like a schoolyard bully who refuses to accept any responsibility for his behavior. On the contrary, he takes an apologetic stance on foreign policy. Not apologizing for his inexperience and failures of his administration, but for America’s. That’s a two for one, he can appease terrorists or our enemies while blaming Americans at home. He cannot muster an appropriate defense for the first amendment. He can’t accept responsibility for gun-walking. He declares executive privilege to halt the investigation. Then Liberals cry that he is being victimized — not the innocent deaths incurred by his failed policies.

That’s why I’m curious how skewed the debates will be? Jim Lehrer won’t be as obvious as say a Candy Crowley. So the fallout post-debate should be even more contentious. Now that they had the National Hypocrites’ convention this is the home stretch. Its a blame-free zone for Obama while he blames America first, last and always.

But the biggest failure Americans ever made was electing this pretender president.
