Why the Democratic Debate Bored You to Tears

Westlake Legal Group Beto-620x315 Why the Democratic Debate Bored You to Tears President Politics MSNBC Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Democrat Debates Allow Media Exception 2020

Wednesday’s Democratic debates brought in a decent amount of viewers but paled in comparison to the viewership during the debates of the 2016 elections.

According to The Hill, NBC brought in some 10 million viewers. A good crowd to be sure, but if the Democrats were looking for a blockbuster night, they didn’t get it:

The 10 million viewership number only pertains to NBC. MSNBC and Telemundo also simulcasted the debate. Those numbers are also expected Thursday afternoon from Nielsen.

For context, the first Republican debate of the 2016 presidential primary season on Fox News, which featured then-real estate mogul Donald Trumpas a front-runner in his first political debate, drew more than 24 million viewers in August 2015.

On the Democratic side in 2015, CNN drew 15.3 million viewers for a debate headlined by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and three other candidates.

There’s a good reason for this, too.

One of the things you try to avoid in comedy is going as blue as you can as quickly as you can. Shock laughs can be funny, but they don’t have a long shelf life, and it leaves you very few places to go afterward.

Looking at the Democratic debate last night made me think of this rule, only the Democrats didn’t start by leading off with the most shocking thing they could say, they came into the debate right after the shocking parts of the Democrat party had had their say. The “eat the rich” and “orange man bad” positions they took is something we’ve been listening to now for a long time. You can only clutch your pearls over hearing leftist politicians talk about their exorbitant tax plans and radical plans to solve climate change so much.

In short, we didn’t hear anything different, just the same bad jokes that lost their edge. We didn’t listen to anything that would have enlightened us as to why we should seriously consider any of these Democrats as a viable candidate. The radical positions the Democrats now feel they should take are positions most Americans have already ruled out.

But aside from the fact that the debates were about as substantial as a ghost party, the real reason people couldn’t bring themselves to care was that the elections are likely already decided. Just last March, the election was being called for Trump by economists who were telling us that the economy is too strong under the current president, and history tells us that a strong economy is almost a guaranteed reelection for the guy running it.

Trump isn’t going anywhere. You know that, I know that, and the Democrats know that, too. They may try, or at least give the impression that they’re trying, but at the end of the day, Trump has the economy and his incumbency working in his favor. Not to mention the fact that people like the guy despite a media throwing Trump’s bad poll numbers around like confetti. He’s filling stadiums with overflow in the thousands. Most Democrats would be lucky to fill a room at the Y.

There are no stakes. The die was cast and it already came up Trump. Save for a miracle for the Democrats, a second term is inevitable.

At this time we’re watching to see which panderer will lose to Donald Trump.

It’s time better spent doing anything else at all.

A 5-Months-Pregnant Alabama Mother is Shot in the Stomach & Her Baby Dies. The Murder Charges Are Politically Stunning

The Murder Charges Are Politically Stunning yellowhammer fund Uncategorized pleasant grove marshae jones law Judicial Jefferson County Government Front Page Stories ebony jemison danny reid Culture crime Birmingham amanda reyes Allow Media Exception Alabama Abortion

 

 

This story is as political as any you’ll read this week.

In Alabama, a pregnant woman was shot in the stomach during an altercation. Her unborn child died.

The state considers unborn babies to be people (please see “LANDMARK RULING: A Court In Alabama Declares Aborted Babies People With Human Rights“), ergo charges were brought for the murder of the child — against the mother, not the shooter.

Why? Because, apparently — in the view of the state — it’s a mother’s responsibility to protect her child.

27-year-old Marshae Jones was five months pregnant when she started a fight with 23-year-old Ebony Jemison over Marshae’s baby’s father. According to police, Ebony was defending herself when she shot Marshae.

Pleasant Grove Police Lt. Danny Reid:

“The investigation showed that the only true victim in this was the unborn baby. It was the mother of the child who initiated and continued the fight which resulted in the death of her own unborn baby.”

The contrast between that outlook and the perspective of, for example, New York City — where government has conferred upon its citizenry the right to murder babies seconds before they are born (here and here) — is stunning.

How could there exist such different moral principles among people in the same society? Or any societies?

Such disparity clearly fits with the original idea of the United States — one increasingly devastated by our national Congress on both sides of the aisle — that each state should have the right to make its own laws, apart from those of other states.

More from Officer Reid, via the venerable Al.com:

“Let’s not lose sight that the unborn baby is the victim here. She had no choice in being brought unnecessarily into a fight where she was relying on her mother for protection.”

The pro-abortion Yellowhammer Fund is none too impressed with the charges, made clear by Executive Director Amanda Reyes, who for some unknown reason wanted to point out Marshae’s racial makeup, as well as the racial makeup of who she predicts will be shot and prosecuted tomorrow, too — or prosecuted for drinking alcohol or not acquiring proper medical care. She also accused Alabama of considering it a mother’s responsibility to produce a healthy baby:

“The state of Alabama has proven yet again that the moment a person becomes pregnant their sole responsibility is to produce a live, healthy baby and that it considers any action a pregnant person takes that might impede in that live birth to be a criminal act. Today, Marshae Jones is being charged with manslaughter for being pregnant and getting shot while engaging in an altercation with a person who had a gun. Tomorrow, it will be another black woman, maybe for having a drink while pregnant. And after that, another, for not obtaining adequate prenatal care.”

Why will it be “another black woman”? And what if it’s a Hungarian woman instead? A Salvadorean? A Cuban? An Icelander? Different?

Apart from viewing people according to their race, the slippery slope is certainly a legislative and judicial reality capable of wreaking havoc. And the Jefferson County grand jury made a bold move. Do you believe the charges are justified?

Please let us all know in the Comments section. I look forward to learning from you.

Oh — and Roll Tide.

At UC Campus’ New ‘Ché Café,’ Students Pay Tribute To The Marxist Revolutionary, Until They Learn How He Treated Gays [Video]

Westlake Legal Group RAGE-AGAINST-THE-MACHINE-Black-M-Che-Guevara-620x465 At UC Campus’ New ‘Ché Café,’ Students Pay Tribute To The Marxist Revolutionary, Until They Learn How He Treated Gays [Video] Will Witt University of California at San Diego Popular Culture Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Culture Che Guevara Allow Media Exception Academia

 

What would explain the timeless allure of Ché Guevara to those on the left? Fifty-two years after his death, the iconic photograph of Guevara taken by Alberto Korda in 1960, complete with beard and beret, still adorns posters and tee shirts.

The latest sign that the charismatic Latin revolutionary still appeals, especially to the young, is a new cafe which has opened on the University of California’s San Diego campus. It’s name? The Ché Café.

Prager University’s Will Witt traveled to the campus to speak with  students about the cafe – and the man.

Witt first speaks with a male student who works there. He asks the young man to explain the Ché Café.

He tells Witt, “It’s part like a music venue, part like a student community center, part like a vegan kitchen and part a social space for radical ideologies and it’s also a safe space.

Witt asks, “So, when you say radical ideologies, do Trump supporters come here?”

The student smiles and says, “Oh, no. I mean more like leftist political ideas…If they start saying stuff that violates our stated policy, which includes like no racism, no transphobia, it’s like, then we will kick them out and stuff.”

“Does that include like no homophobia?” Witt asks.

“No homophobia. No transphobia. No racism,” the student replies.

“I was just wondering because you know it’s named after Ché Guevara who put a lot of homosexuals in prison in Cuba,” Witt tells the student.

Two female students were unfamiliar with him until Witt showed the second one a photo, I should say the photo of Guevara. Suddenly, a huge smile crosses her face.

He speaks to a male student with a ring through his nose. “A great man from what I know. I’ve listened to an interview by Ché. He seemed passionate. He seemed like he was rooted in human rights.”

Most of these students have little or no idea of Guevara’s life and deeds.

He was a ruthless killer.

Ernest Hemingway lived in Cuba at the time of the Revolution. “Guevara was jailer and executioner-in-chief of Castro’s dictatorship. As boss of the notorious La Cabaña prison in Havana, he supervised the detention, interrogation, summary trials and execution of hundreds of “class enemies.”

Hemingway once “witnessed the shooting of prisoners condemned by the tribunals under Guevara’s control. He watched as the men were trucked in, unloaded, shot, and taken away.”

That was the real Ché Guevara.

Yet, he became a hero in the counterculture of the 1960s. Guevara, or rather his famous photo, has become a symbol of rebellion for many in the West.

But he was no hero.

 

Watch the video.

Michael Avenatti’s Bad Week Gets Worse After Homophobic Tweet He Sent to Lindsey Graham

As I wrote yesterday, liberal icon Michael Avenatti has not had a very good week.

Avenatti, who has been indicted on multiple counts of fraud, got ripped to shreds Monday by NRSC senior advisor Matthew Whitlock after calling Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) a “fraud.” Whitlock started off by saying that “Michael Avenatti calling anyone a fraud is the most hilarious thing on the internet today” and the fun went on from there as Avenatti continuously tried and failed to one-up him.

On Tuesday, Avenatti attacked “View” co-host Meghan McCain over her stance on border detention centers. When Ben Shapiro responded to the attack in kind, Avenatti blew up. It did not go well.

Getting utterly, thoroughly, and repeatedly owned on Twitter for his nasty behavior did not deter porn star Stormy Daniels’s former attorney from acting out, however.

Shortly after the Democratic debate was over Wednesday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sent out a tweet joking about a third Trump term:

In classic Avenatti fashion, the attorney injected a classless joke that spoke volumes about his “character”:

Notice the time he sent the tweet – around 2:30 Thursday morning. 5 hours later, the obsessive liberal blowhard sent the same tweet, except this time it was in the form of a direct reply:

Clearly, he wants Graham to respond. The Senator hasn’t, but others weighed in and ripped Avenatti:

Graham has been increasingly subjected to baseless allegations about his sexuality from unhinged Democrats ever since he started aggressively defending President Trump during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.

Facts First: Obama’s ICE Chief Sets the Record Straight on When the ‘Kids in Cages’ Policy Started

Westlake Legal Group BorderFence Facts First: Obama’s ICE Chief Sets the Record Straight on When the ‘Kids in Cages’ Policy Started Thomas Homan Politics North Carolina immigration Illegal Immigration Ice Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture Congress border crisis Barack Obama Allow Media Exception

One of the most persistent myths pushed by Democrats about the border crisis is that the “kids in cages” policy, where unaccompanied illegal immigrant children are kept behind chain link fences in detention facilities, started under the Trump administration. It has been debunked numerous times.

Nevertheless, like so many other myths the left has perpetuated since Trump’s election, it endures.

But one man who is in a position to know the facts on this issue is aiming to set the record straight. During a conference earlier this week on immigration, former President Obama’s ICE chief Thomas Homan spoke about the origins of “kids in cages”:

“I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages. That facility was built under President Obama under (Homeland Security) Secretary Jeh Johnson. I was there because I was there when it was built,” said Thomas Homan, who was Obama’s executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for nearly four years.

At an immigration conference today, Homan, under consideration for a new position of “border czar” in the Trump administration, grew visibly angry answering a question about “cages” often cited by Democratic critics of the president.

[…]

He cited one Democratic chairman who asked a Trump official, “You still keeping kids in cages?”

Homan, at the conference hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies, said, “I would answer the question, ‘The kids are being housed in the same facility built under the Obama administration.’ If you want to call them cages, call them cages. But if the left wants to call them cages and the Democrats want to call them cages then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY 2015.”

Earlier this month, Trump named Homan as the administration’s “border czar”, but Homan told Fox News in an interview that a decision had not yet been made and that there were still discussions going on about the position.

Homan, who has been with ICE since it was started in 2003, has been a defender of Trump’s stance on border security and illegal immigration, and is a frequent critic of Democratic policies on the issue. He also served as Trump’s acting ICE chief for 18 months

Las Vegas Allows Parking Tickets to be Paid in Donations for Kids

The Las Vegas City Council has announced a plan for people to pay off their parking tickets while helping local kids.

The council voted unanimously to give people the option to pay parking fines issued between June 19 and July 19 by donating school supplies to the Teachers Exchange.

Items the city is willing to accept in lieu of fines include:

  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Erasers
  • Dry erase markers
  • Index cards
  • Paper towels/Disinfecting wipes
  • Card stock
  • Copy paper
  • Storage bins
  • Rulers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil sharpeners
  • Post-it notes

The supplies must be equal or greater in value to the amount of the fine, and only citations that were no threat to public safety are eligible.

Donations should be brought to the Parking Services Offices at 500 S. Main St in Las Vegas within 30 days of the infraction and a receipt is required.

In July of 2016, the Las Vegas City Council authorized a program that established this occasional program allowing charitable donations in lieu of payment for parking fines.

The city tweeted about the program.

David Riggleman, Communications Director for the City told Yahoo Lifestyle that donations usually total between $1,000 and 2,000 when they run such programs.

“It is a way to encourage building community and to help non-profit associations in need. We also believe it makes paying parking fines more palatable if the donation is going to a good cause,” he says.

The Ratings From the Democratic Debate Were About What You’d Expect

Right now, one of the most controversial figures to ever sit in the oval office possibly has his job up for grabs, and the world wants to know what his opponents are going to do about it.

And the answer is to pander you into boredom.

According to The Hill, the Democrat debates that would help decide which person would lose to Donald Trump drew in an audience that I would refer to as “curious” at best. It was a decent audience at 10 million, but compared to the crowds that were brought in during the 2016 elections, that number is shrug-worthy:

The 10 million viewership number only pertains to NBC. MSNBC and Telemundo also simulcasted the debate. Those numbers are also expected Thursday afternoon from Nielsen.

For context, the first Republican debate of the 2016 presidential primary season on Fox News, which featured then-real estate mogul Donald Trumpas a front-runner in his first political debate, drew more than 24 million viewers in August 2015.

On the Democratic side in 2015, CNN drew 15.3 million viewers for a debate headlined by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and three other candidates.

I’d like to get more accurate stats to see how many people tuned in and tuned out after a time. Nothing that was said on the stage was particularly new, and the extremist positions being given by almost every candidate up there is one that most of America, even the majority of Democrats, aren’t exactly excited by.

What’s more, there was no winner from last night, but the clear loser was definitely Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, who the Democrats on stage went after due to being the weak, sick gazelle among them. Nobody took any chances by punching up. It was, to but it bluntly, boring.

We may get a different story for tonight as we’re now going to see the heavyweights within the Democrat party see who can speak better Spanish. People love Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, and they’re going to want to hear from them.

Democrats in Florida Stand Outside the Homestead Immigrant Facility and Lie About What is Inside

Westlake Legal Group Warren Democrats in Florida Stand Outside the Homestead Immigrant Facility and Lie About What is Inside Politics immigration immigraant children Front Page Stories Front Page Florida Featured Story Featured Post Elizabeth Warren democrats Democrat Debates Campaigns Border Wall Funding border security Allow Media Exception 2020

The desire for a photo-op and debate traction shows a lack of desire for the facts.

Elizabeth Warren stood in the harsh Florida sun, with 90+% humidity, wearing her librarian sweater. She resembled the President of the local Ravelry Knitting Collective, as she held a megaphone and bleated about the harsh treatment of children on the property. Welcome to the madhouse; the Presidential campaign season has officially opened, and there is probably no better place to launch this psychosis than the mental ward known as South Florida.

As has been the case here for centuries, my home region is being overrun with an infestation — this one of the political nature. There were a number of locations suggested for the nearly two dozen candidates to swarm in order to glom some pre-debate media coverage.

It was suggested that Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School be a destination for the gun-nabbing candidates. Sure, school is out, but the scene of a massive tragedy would make for a swell backdrop. Politicize those deaths for poll numbers!

The environmentally-focused runners would be setting up in the Everglades, of course, and a current brush fire would make for the PERFECT backdrop! What better way to underscore the need for environmental reform than a natural calamity?! What these out-of-towners would miss however is that the fires in the Everglades are part of the natural cycle of replenishment and growth. It is not a man-made disaster in need of government intervention.

This particular fire was set off by a storm that I drove through on Sunday, set off by lightning strikes. There is no legislation that can be offered to remedy a natural event. Drought cannot be blamed either, as this area has been inundated with heavy rain for over two weeks. Maybe there will be a new Democrat policy to limit lightning activity; this is a tall order, as our state is one of the most active areas in the world for lightning.

But no surprise to learn that the Homestead immigrant facility would be a favored media stop. Liz Warren did her posing and sounded rightfully outraged. She may prefer you not pay too close attention to her words, however. The first thing she did was refer to the facility as “A stain on our country,” and then she made the call for emergency border funding. Yes, Elizabeth — about that.

Let us first recall, for the better part of 2018, and months into this current year, most Democrats spent their time excoriating President Trump by saying there was no border crisis. Curious what has changed in the past few months, beyond a campaign being ramped up? Also, if this need for funding at the border was so crucial, why were you not in Washington D.C. the day prior? I ask because a crucial vote took place — regarding emergency border funding. (And also for the record, it was your party that voted against such funding, Ms. Warren.)

There is something else taking place when politicians like Elizabeth Warren and Super-PAC funded celebrity activist Alyssa Milano arrive and demand they be allowed inside this facility to disrupt the activities of the children. When they are complaining about conditions, and comparing the place to a concentration camp, know this — they are lying.

Having covered prior political chicanery concerning this particular location, I, at least, have something these bleating self-interested figures lack — insight. It was almost one year ago exactly, in the run-up for the mid-term election when politicians attempted to politicize this facility. Then Senator Bill Nelson and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz stormed the location with a “surprise” visit, to see the horrors contained therein. Conveniently this was not a surprise for the dozens of electronic media who happened to arrive as well that morning.

After being rebuffed by the management, and told they could come back a few days later with a scheduled visit, the politicos feigned outrage. But eventually, they and select members of the press were allowed in. It seems they were disappointed in what they discovered inside — things were quite pleasant. Imagine being in a position where you are let down to find out children are being treated with care and kindness.

This location had previously been a Department Of Labor building, used for Job Corps activities. It was recommissioned to become a holding location for immigrant minors. This conversion began in 2015. That means this facility became a “stain on this nation” at the order of the Obama administration. Ms. Warren’s handlers may want to rework their language accordingly.

There are a number of hysterical Democrat-fed myths about this facility that get blasted to confetti with the facts. This is not a holding center where everyone is caged and sleeps on concrete floors. It is dormitory housing. Every child is provided with their own bed. They are fed three meals daily in the cafeteria. For protection, they are segregated by ages to avoid conflicts and abuses.

In defiance of Democrat declarations of withheld supplies, upon arrival, each child is assigned their bed, given at least five days worth of clothing, and is issued a hygiene kit. Their days involve a variety of activities. They receive schooling in select subjects and engage in art projects. They have ample time to play outside, and watching sports and movies is offered.

One New York Times reporter who toured the place noted that about the harshest condition she saw was a number of the children had sweaters. It turned out many were unaccustomed to the central air conditioning, inside this climate-controlled “concentration camp.

One other major talking point of the Dems was dispelled by the Miami Herald, which also had been at the location — that being these children have been wrested away from doting parents. At the time of the visit, there were 1,175 children being housed on location. Of that total, over 1,100 of them had come to the United States as unaccompanied minors. As you hear calls from the debate podium that these kids need to be released immediately, note that no moderators asked this follow-up question: Where would you release these children with no families?! The streets? Allow them to remain with the coyotes who brought them into our country?

The facts reported are that the average length of stay for the children inside Homestead is less than one month. In that time, either relatives in the states are located to take them in, or foster families are secured. In the meantime they are properly housed, cared for, and tended to. We are, in fact, doing the benevolent thing.

The attempt of the Democrats to offset responsibility onto Donald Trump and use falsified condition reports is both cynical and cravenly political. Trump did not sneak these facilities into existence to the surprise of the conveniently outraged. Conversion of government buildings into immigration centers began over ten years ago, and with the approval of Congress. Another attempted offset of blame concern what have been dubbed “baby jails”.

It has been asserted that Trump has created buildings to house immigrant infants and toddlers. There have even been media reporting that the administration used the term “tender age facilities” to cloak what are these supposed jails for babies. Except, there are the recorded requests from the Health and Human Services Department requisitioning the construction — from 2010. They even employed the term “tender age” in the wording of the request.

These are details that the media is largely disinterested in correcting. The story of the government caring for children who arrive here without familial support is just not as good copy as a media-starved politician from the Bronx pretending to be wailing outside of a “concentration camp”. It is left to us to correct the record, it seems.

Biology Fail: Twitter Erupts After Dem Presidential Candidate Promotes Abortion Rights for … Transgender Women

Presidential candidate Julian Castro speaks at the Democratic debate – 6/26/19. Screen grab via MSNBC.

When it comes to so-called “abortion rights”, Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro believes no one should be excluded from the right to choose – including men who identify as women.

At last night’s Democratic debate, Castro was asked about his position on abortion rights and if his healthcare plan would cover abortion costs. Here’s what the former housing secretary had to say:

“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is just because a woman, or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.”

Watch Castro’s remarks below:

There’s just one slight problem with this answer: Men cannot get pregnant.

Twitter users noticed, and responded:

Greg at Twitchy documented many more reactions here.

Castro was clearly proud of his answer, as he tweeted out video of it later in the evening:

It’s quite possible Castro was referring to transgender MEN, as they are women who identify as men and can still have a baby, depending on where they are in the transition process.

But that’s not what he said so, you know, we have lots of questions on this matter.

By most accounts, former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke was the loser of last night’s Democratic primary debate. However, he did provide us with one hilarious moment.

O’Rourke was asked by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie if he would support an individual tax rate of 70% on earners making more than $10 million a year. He uttered a few platitudes and then…began speaking in Spanish. The quizzical look on New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker’s face was priceless!

It was a combination of disbelief and amusement. If Booker hadn’t been on national television, he would have rolled his eyes and said “FFS.”

It’s possible that Booker’s humorous expression was due to the fact that he is also fluent in the language and had planned to answer a question in Spanish later in the debate – which he eventually did.

Elizabeth Warren looked on expressionless. Maybe she was wishing she could speak fluent Cherokee.

The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah had the best response by far. Noah tweeted: “When Dad says “Hola, como estas?” to the waiter at the Mexican restaurant @DemDebate

Here are some other reactions from Twitter:

Gif showing comedian Seth Meyers: “Is this motherf**cker for real right now?”

“Think people reading too much into Booker’s expressions. He always looks like that!”

“Next thing will be Elizabeth Warren sending smoke signals.”

“In What country is Beto O’Rourke making a run for office?”

“I’m sorry, if they want to ask & answer the questions in Spanish. BROADCAST THE DEBATE ON TELEMUNDO!!!!”

“Ohh the memes that will come out from this”

“The moment when the other Democratic candidates realized that the threat is real.”

“Booker was salty when Beto beat him with the Spanish bit.”

Beto never did answer Guthrie’s question. He refused to be pinned down to a 70% tax rate, even on the wealthy.
