As streiff wrote earlier today, the mainstream media and Democrats are foaming-at-the-mouth angry over President Trump’s Saturday retweet of a “conspiracy theory” actor and comedian Terrence K. Williams tweeted out about the reported early Saturday morning suicide of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Williams’s tweet suggested the Clintons were involved in a cover-up and may have had something to do with Epstein’s death. To recap, here’s the tweet:

Social Media Sexual Assault republicans Politics North Carolina New York Media Jeffrey Epstein Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump doj democrats Culture crime Bill Clinton Allow Media Exception

Trump was asked about the retweet on Tuesday by a gaggle of frantic reporters in New Jersey and here is how he responded:

“He is a very highly respected conservative pundit,” Trump said Tuesday of Terrence K. Williams, the man whose tweet the president shared.

“He’s a big Trump fan. And that was a retweet. That wasn’t from me. That was from him. But he’s a man with half a million followers, a lot of followers,” Trump continued, speaking to reporters as he traveled from his summer getaway in Bedminster, New Jersey, to Pennsylvania.

“Basically what we’re saying is, we want an investigation. I want a full investigation,” Trump added.

In addition to demanding a full investigation, Trump also talked more at length about Clinton’s friendship with Epstein:

QUESTION: Do you really think the Clintons are involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s death?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I have no idea. I know he was on his plane 27 times and he said he was on the plane 4 times. But when they checked the plane logs, Bill Clinton who was a very good friend of Epstein, he was on the plane about 27 or 28 times. So why did he say four times?

And then the question you have to ask is did Bill Clinton go to the island? Because Epstein had an island that was not a good place, as I understand it. And I was never there, but you have to ask, did Bill Clinton go to the island. That’s the question. If you find that out, you’re going to know a lot. Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

Watch video of Trump’s back and forth with the media below:

Though Trump’s numbers were imprecise, it’s not as though what he said about the discrepancy in the number of flights Clinton’s office says he took on Epstein’s plane is a lie, as Fox News reported in 2016:

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

[…]

Among those regularly traveling with Clinton were Epstein’s associates, New York socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein’s assistant, Sarah Kellen, both of whom were investigated by the FBI and Palm Beach Police for recruiting girls for Epstein and his friends.

A statement the Clintons put out last month after Epstein’s arrest claimed Bill Clinton had only been on Epstein’s plane a total of 4 times, which is not true:

Even if everyone agreed it was inappropriate for Trump to promote various conspiracy theories about the Clintons and Epstein, the questions he posed today about the former President’s association with Epstein are legitimate. The American people deserve the answers to them that most in the mainstream media have so far been reluctant to dig for simply because Clinton’s a Democrat.

Max Boot Calls National Review White Supremacist Because Everything Is Dumb

Westlake Legal Group kristol-boot-npc-620x357 Max Boot Calls National Review White Supremacist Because Everything Is Dumb white supremacy the washington post rubin racist Politics National Review Media max boot Frum Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Brooks Bill Kristol #nevertrump

used with permission from Ace of Spades http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=377650

Max Boot, who’s notoriety extends to being so continually wrong about foreign policy that he must be actively trying to fail, was the target of a recent National Review article in which he was called out for fanning the flames of racial hatred. You see, Boot in the post Trump era has done what many other “conservatives” have done. Namely, they’ve decided TV appearances and that sweet, sweet cable news cash outweigh any concern for actual conservative policy wins. These are the people who fancy themselves moral betters in the age of Trump despite the fact that their private lives rarely measure up.

Boot, Sykes, Frum, Rubin, Brooks, Kristol, etc. make up a cabal of media fixtures who have no actual following. Yet, they’ve learned they can make money by being anti-Trump and parroting woke talking points. Boot has comically “left” the Republican party about a dozen times as this point, each time demanding other real Republicans pay him respect for his principled decision. I believe he even wrote a low-selling book about it. I’m not going to waste the time to find out as it’s nothing I’m going to recommend.

Earlier, Boot wrote a piece entitled “Get a Grip White People. We’re Not Victims.” That’s news to me as I’ve never claimed to be a victim in the first place, buy hey, we are doing the broad brush thing here and Boot has to get his woke points up to remain at The Washington Post. In response to his silly screed, John Hirschauer over at National Review wrote a rebuttal. Here’s an excerpt of the National Review article that got Boot so incensed.

A responsible journalist would propose a realistic alternative for conservative whites who don’t want to cede their basic political premises but who nevertheless reject white nationalism. But Boot instead goes on a meandering tirade with scant a coherent point. Sometimes he rails against white people as such; his claims range from the tautological (“White people can be pretty clueless”) to the plainly calumnious (“ . . . the sense of outrage that white people feel when they fear losing their privileged position to people of color”). At other times, he aims his fire more narrowly on the “many” Trump supporters who assume “that white supremacy is the natural order of things.”

Like most white authors in this genre, Boot’s self-hatred is boutique and performative. His ire is directed more at White People in the abstract than with white people as such. Boot (who, it must be said, is whiter than almost anyone on the Washington Post masthead) must, for his piece’s title to make any sense, be in possession of the “grip” he’d like his fellow whites to “get.” I’m not quite sure he is.

The great shame of this piece is not that Boot had the audacity to instruct an entire racial group to “get a grip.” It is not even his almost libelous comparison of post-apartheid South Africa with the United States in 2019. It is the irresponsibility of speaking in such totalizing racial language in a time that, as he himself concedes, is “dangerous.” Max Boot can claim all he wants that President Trump is stoking the flames of race hatred, but if he really believes that, he ought to stop fanning them himself.

Sounds fair to me. What Boot is doing is exactly the kind of identity politics that the left routinely propagates. He assigns nefarious motive and faux grievance to an entire race of people, never stopping to consider most people are simply living their lives, not concerned in the least with presenting themselves as victims. Then, even as he demands subjugation of one group, he makes room for every possible grievance of other groups he deems worthy. Never once does he stop to consider people of all races are simply individuals, often with diverse viewpoints.

It’s a kind of soft racism that’s tolerated way too much in the name of inter-sectionality, which has become a religious dogma within the Democratic party at this point. Boot, desperate to be part of the club, is willing to say whatever it takes to keep the plaudits and retweets flowing.

Worse, Boot traffics in the typical “white supremacist” trope that has so perverted our politics and discourse. Don’t like someone’s views on immigration? Just call them a white supremacist. Don’t like someone’s views on the 2nd amendment? Must be a white supremacist.

In a response that would be suspected of parody if his Twitter account wasn’t verified, Boot responds to Hirschauer’s criticism exactly as you’d expect.

Everything is white supremacy.

This is what passes for intelligent thought at The Washington Post and within the greater liberal media structure these days. It’s so devoid of actual thought and evidence so as to simply be a reactionary slur at this point. In reality, it’s an abuse of language that ultimately hurts the cause of fighting against racism. If everything is racist, nothing is racist.

I’ve got my issues with certain writers at National Review. What I do know though is that they aren’t is white supremacists. But this is the future of politics on the left, which Boot is firmly on at this point. No longer do issues and details need debating. All you have to do is call your opponents racist and tacitly endorse their silencing. It’s a level of laziness that is leading to further corrosion of our society.

I’m genuinely curious how long this stupidity can last.

Dear American Left, You’ve Lost the Right To Be Upset Over Anyone Spreading Conspiracy Theories

On Saturday, accused human trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found hanged in his cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Being a firm believer in the idea that there really is no logical floor on the level of bureaucratic incompetence, I’ve never had much of a doubt that it was actual suicide but I was sort of surprised that he had the actual guts to do it. Anyway, the circumstances immediately set off a wave of conspiracy theories or hints of conspiracy theories like this by Joe Scarborough:

Westlake Legal Group scarborough-620x446 Dear American Left, You’ve Lost the Right To Be Upset Over Anyone Spreading Conspiracy Theories Steele dossier Russia Probe Robert Mueller Politics Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Christopher Steele Allow Media Exception

A guy named Terrence K. Williams, who is billed as an actor and comedian (full disclosure, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of him before today) sent out his addition to the Epstein suicide oeuvre and Donald Trump retweeted it.

The left, rather predictably, went nuts.

We can argue the propriety of Trump doing this. We just aren’t going to argue it with anyone in the media or on the left. In fact, if you pushed the Russia hoax at any point you really need just to put a freakin bag over your head and sit this one out.

These people have spent nearly three years peddling the most ridiculous conspiracy theory to come down the pike since “fire can’t melt steel” was all the rage during the days right after 9/11.

For three years the Steele dossier and ancillary materials have been touted by the left as proof of some grand plot by which Russia engineered the election of Donald Trump by way of $100,000 in Facebook ads and convincing Hillary Clinton to ignore Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Stupid stories were spun involving secret servers giving the Trump campaign direction, of Michael Cohen’s trips to Prague, of Trump cavorting with Russian hookers, of Russians coordinating the theft of Clinton emails with the Trump campaign. These conspiracy theories didn’t rate moral opprobrium, they got a bevy of Pulitzer Prizes for two of the nation’s most prestigious newspapers.

So, lefties, if you want to criticize this, you need to first apologize for your conduct since about September 2016 and retract any statements you made about the Russia hoax. If you can’t do that, well, at least have the decency to just shut up. Because you have no reason to criticize anyone for spreading any conspiracy theory.

ICE Field Office Director Blames “Political Rhetoric” After Shots Fired Into San Antonio ICE Facility

FILE – In this July 8, 2019, file photo, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer looks on during an operation in Escondido, Calif. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull, File)

A suspect is in custody after shots were fired in the early Tuesday morning hours at an ICE facility in San Antonio, TX. KSAT has the details:

San Antonio police are questioning a man who they have in custody regarding a shooting that left windows shattered on several offices in a Northeast Side building.

Among the offices was one that houses the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division.

[…]

Officers said the ICE office is located on the 14th floor of the high rise.

They were not sure right away from where the shots were fired, or how they reached one of the top floors on one of the tallest buildings in the area.

Police also were not sure whether that office was targeted purposely or if it was hit randomly.

My San Antonio reports that police told them the shots may have been fired “possibly from across Loop 410”:

According to police, shots were fired possibly from across Loop 410, hitting the windows in the building, including the ICE office, officials said.

Per multiple local media reports, the suspect was taken into custody along Village Drive, which is nearby. Fortunately, no one was injured even though there were people in the buildings at the time.

Here are some photos from the scene:

The San Antonio FBI office issued a statement condemning the attacks:

A field office director for ICE was even more direct in his response, suggesting the department believes the attacks were motivated by anti-ICE rhetoric:

Since Democrats and the mainstream media never wait to find out the facts and review available evidence before assigning blame, we anxiously await condemnation from them on this disturbing case, especially from Squad leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), who should also be in the middle of drafting an apology statement.

Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camp” rhetoric on border detention centers was used by the Antifa terrorist who attempted to kill ICE workers at a Tacoma, WA facility last month. She has yet to condemn that attack, which means by her own standards she condones it.

Her rules and all.

Family Members of Two El Paso Victims Say They Are Receiving Death Threats After Meeting With Trump

In yet another on a long list of examples of how we are living in incredibly stupid times, the Daily Mail reports that deranged lunatics have allegedly issued death threats to family members of two El Paso mass shooting victims because those family members had the audacity to meet with President Trump in the aftermath:

The family of the young couple who died protecting their baby from the El Paso gunman say they have received death threats after they met with Donald Trump.

A picture of the president went viral in the wake of the mass shooting at the Walmart after it showed first lady Melania holding little Paul Anchondo as POTUS smiled and gave a thumbs up.

Among the family members in the photo was the baby’s uncle, Tito Anchondo, a Trump supporter who said he had received death threats.

‘We should be coming together as a country at this time instead of threatening each other with hate messages,’ he said.

Here’s the photo the article talks about that went viral – and made liberals go crazy (the one on the bottom left):

Along with the President and the First Lady, Tito Anchondo is pictured at left along with with baby Paul Gilbert Anchondo and an unidentified member of the Anchondo family. Paul Gilbert survived the El Paso mass shooting because his parents Jordan and Andre Anchondo gave their lives to protect him.

Tito Anchondo told NPR last week that not only was he supportive of President Trump, but that his deceased brother had been a supporter, also:

[NPR Host David] GREENE: Of course, there are some in El Paso who don’t want the president to come to the city at all. Some here think that Trump’s language about immigrants could have incited the violence that took the life of Tito’s brother. And so I asked him about that.

ANCHONDO: I can see why people would believe that. And yes, maybe he said things in bad taste, but I think people are misconstruing President Trump’s ideas.

GREENE: I’m sure people hearing from you are going to react in all different ways.

ANCHONDO: Definitely, especially since I’m Hispanic.

GREENE: And I know that there are some listeners who have been very angry at this president and feel like he’s incited racism and are probably – might have thought like, you know, you have had – in this moment of tremendous loss, like, you were going to almost rise and be a spokesperson against some of what the president has said.

ANCHONDO: Yeah. I think – my brother was very supportive of Trump. We’ve always been Republican conservatives in our family.

It’s shameful and despicable that in addition to having to contend with the overwhelming grief of losing a brother and sister-in-law that the family is now having to concern themselves with death threats, presumably from unhinged people who don’t like the fact that some members chose to meet and take photos with President Trump.

Please remember to keep them and the family members of all of the victims of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings in your thoughts and prayers, and pray that those threatening the Anchondo family will be found and brought to justice.

Fun Fact: Chris Cuomo Referred to Himself as “Fredo” During an Interview

Westlake Legal Group chris-cuomo-headshot-620x317 Fun Fact: Chris Cuomo Referred to Himself as “Fredo” During an Interview Radio Show racism Politics Media Front Page Stories Fredo Featured Story democrats CNN Chris Cuomo Allow Media Exception 2010

FILE – In this May 16, 2018 file photo, Chris Cuomo attends the Turner Networks 2018 Upfront in New York. Cuomo will start his own two-hour radio show next Monday at noon on SiriusXM. The company said Wednesday that Cuomo’s weekday show will air on its nonpartisan P.O.T.U.S. channel. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)

Just to show you that the outrage over calling CNN host Chris Cuomo “Fredo” is all “faux and show,” allow me to present to you Fredo himself calling himself Fredo.

According to the New York Post, it happened when Cuomo was appearing with Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010. The two were discussing his brother, Andrew Cuomo, and his possible run for Governor of New York:

“There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.”

“Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

“Yes, exactly,” Sliwa said. “So you better be careful that your brother Andrew doesn’t kiss you on both cheeks and then all of a sudden they take you out on the middle of the lake and where’s Chris?”

“He kisses me plenty because he’s a great big brother,” Cuomo said.

So Fredo labels himself Fredo, but gets upset and threatens to throw people down staircases when called that by other people, even going so far as to claim that “Fredo” is like saying the “n-word” to a black person.

This is like Cuomo trying to tell people they can’t call Italian people “Fredo” because it’s “their word.” Of course, it’s not a racial slur, it’s more of an attack on someone’s character, as Fredo was the weak brother from the Godfather movies who eventually betrays the family.

As I wrote in a previous article, Cuomo seems to have zero problems with the word “Fredo” if it’s being used as a way to describe people on the right. This includes the word being thrown around on his own show when used to describe Donald Trump Jr.

Again, all “faux and show” in order to promote the idea that the right is racist. However, if it is a racist term, then the left has a lot of explaining to do, including Fredo Cuomo.

Here’s Why Trump Is Right to Enforce the Law On Immigrants and Welfare

Over the past few days we’ve seen a collective freakout among the media over Trump supposedly being so cold and heartless that he’s going to make it tougher to legally immigrate if you are on welfare. That means

Multiple outlets, including NPR and The Washington Post, ran articles proclaiming insinuating how unprecedented and cruel this is.

Then you had people like California Gov. Gavin Newsom spouting this kind of nonsense. Brad Slager covered that here, along with the responses from several 2020 candidates.

I’ll recap the details of why this is happening legally, but past that, let’s just talk common sense.

A country with a vast welfare system, which we have, simply can not sustain itself by allowing the world’s poor to immigrate and collect benefits. If money weren’t finite and bankruptcy weren’t a real thing, I’d have no problem with it. My emotional response to want to help everyone we can.

But that can’t happen if you don’t screen immigrants for their propensity to take more than they give. Without that dynamic, you simply put the country on a quicker path to disaster. Handing out green cards to people who immediately go on SNAP and public housing is a recipe for creating a situation where the United States can no longer help anyone. The best intentions often lead to the worst consequences.

What Trump is doing is not a rash decision he made on a whim because he hates immigrants. He’s actually enforcing a law that goes all the way back to 1996, a law that was signed by none other than Bill Clinton.

This is the stupidity of our immigration debate. The other side not only relies on specious emotional arguments, they also rely on the idea that it’s immoral or wrong to enforce the law. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s required under the oath the President took. Every Democrat member of Congress that’s running in 2020 made the same pledge and now wants to pretend it doesn’t exist.

Don’t like the current immigration enforcement? Don’t like that the law requires immigrants to be self-sufficient? Go change the law. Making emotional pleas on Twitter and yelling Orange Man Bad is not a policy. That’s a weak minded person’s tactic.

What Trump is doing is simply following the law that preceded his administration. The fact that other administrations chose to flaunt the law is not grounds to now demand Trump do so now. The dishonesty on this topic from our media is mind-numbing.

Past that, it’s simply necessary that there be rules and stipulations placed on legal immigration into this country. To not have that will lead to the destruction of the system all together.

Surprise! Democrats and the Media Label President Trump a Racist Over a Democrat-Passed Law

When the smartest minds in California are this ignorant of the laws…

Kamala Harris is having a tough week. She was shown to be lying over the Michael Brown anniversary, was challenged and embarrassed by a nursing-home denizen, and her campaign is struggling mightily it seems in getting donations to keep it afloat. Now she has weighed in on another Trump proposal, and it only adds to her dysphoria.

The latest policy initiative to get the Dems in a dander is to instill a hardline restriction on the number of federal benefits immigrants can retain. It is an effort to get these residents off of government dependency and have them actually become a contributing member of the society that sought out to join. There is some confusion with the angry reactions from Democrats on the issue.

One of their prevailing arguments of late has been that immigrants are workers who actually provide net gains for the country by arriving. Now when the administration has announced they are holding firm on these built-in restrictions the Democrats are singing not only a different tune but one in a completely different genre. The new claim is immigrants will now be forced off of certain vital needs, which were previously claimed to be met with their positive-net work economic influence. It is outrage du jour.

In a mostly scathing article on the policy Think Progress detailed all of the negatives this would have on the immigrant community. The outlet quoted the National Immigration Law Center: “This news is a cruel new step toward weaponizing programs that are intended to help people by making them, instead, a means of separating families and sending immigrants and communities of color one message: you are not welcome here.”

Kamala has come forward to of course label this policy as the latest proof of Donald Trump’s racism.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has also vilified Trump over this enforcement. He invoked the need of these programs for their “basic survival”, in direct opposition to the claims they are contributing members to our society. Of course, for Newsom to say this brings up all of the lack of assistance he has been able to provide for the mounting homelessness problem sweeping his state. That is — actual citizens of this country.

All of these players — Harris, Newsom, immigration policy centers — have done one of two things here; displayed their arrogant ignorance, or they are outright lying. Neither is a positive. What the Trump administration is doing here is not instituting some new executive order — they are merely enforcing standing immigration law. This particular legislation has been made to see to it that those arriving to this country are doing so with the goal of assimilation and contribution.

And this has been the case for decades. Harris and Newsom are displaying rampant obliviousness about something that was passed in 1996, signed into law by William Jefferson Clinton. With Newsom this is hardly a surprise. He has shown a particular contempt for many federal guidelines on immigration, from establishing sanctuary cities to refusing to work with immigration officials and vilifying ICE. Whether unaware or hostile to this law, it is right in line with his character.

For Kamala, in particular, this is a bad look. As former Attorney General of California, she should be apprised of this type of legislation. She refers to Trump being ignorant of the history, yet here she is displaying rampant ignorance about federal law, and one pertaining to her home state. For a candidate trying to lay claim to the White House this becomes just another troubling component to her campaign.

Desperate Democrat Women are Turning to Witchcraft to Keep Trump from Winning 2020

President Donald Trump is going to win his reelection campaign in 2020, and everyone knows it. You know it, I know it, Republicans know, and Democrats especially know it.

You know they know it because in the midst of the 2020 Democrat candidates doing their best to campaign for a primary win, Democrat activists and lawmakers have been more focused on things like trying to find any tiny chance that Mueller investigation would produce something damning, or attempting to convince Michelle Obama to run, even after the lineup has been decided.

But desperate times call for desperate measures, and Democrat women have finally decided to see if magic will help them win in 2020.

You didn’t misread that. They’re casting spells and resorting to the occult.

Not that it’s anything new. Witchcraft has been surging since Trump’s election. Even celebrities have been in on the idea of gathering together to cast spells on Trump to make him fail.

They’re not working.

According to The Guardian, women are turning to the idea of being witches more and more thanks to a few factors. One is the reemergence of witches in pop-culture and the idea that Trump has brought the full force of the patriarchy down on the nation. In fact, author Sady Doyle noted that it’s also likely that witches are making a comeback out of spite based on, according to them, how 2016 Democrat failure Hillary Clinton was treated like a witch during Republican rallies:

When the witch emerged as a contemporary figure of resistance, it was hard to tell where she came from; Hollywood iconography, feminist history, the coming of age of the Craft generation or just the optics of the 2016 election, in which a presumed-to-be-monstrous woman was ritually castigated by a man who led crowds in chants of “lock her up”. Watching the chants take over the floor at the Republican national convention, Rebecca Traister wrote: “I was not the only person in the room to be reminded of 17th-century witch trials, the blustering magistrate and rowdy crowd condemning a woman to death for her crimes.” The new feminist identification with witches seemed to draw from every version of the myth at once: mystical and monstrous, feminist academia and horrorcore aesthetics, drawing them together in one angry, intentionally ugly repudiation of American patriarchy.

Doyle wrote that Trump’s election was a breaking point. Interesting choice of words, as turning to magic definitely sounds like something you’d do when you have a breakdown of some sort. With the supposed rise of the patriarchy, Doyle wrote that women turned from “the patriarchy’s gods” and moved toward an “old, dark power”:

But the old, dark power – the choice to worship something other than patriarchy’s gods, to reject and read backward the narratives of the dominant culture – was still there. The Trump administration represented a breaking point for many women. After decades in which sophisticated thinkers dismissed patriarchy as simplistic or irrelevant, it was revealed to be alive, well and out for blood – the ethos which still ruled the US government and defined, or ended, countless women’s lives.

It’s near the end that Doyle seems to get a bit on the creepily poetic side. She writes as if she’s speaking like she’s giving a monologue over a movie’s montage of women grabbing their black robes and pointed hats before making their way into the woods in droves. It comes off kind of awkward, mostly because Doyle seems to be taking this witch stuff way too seriously:

The witch lives between dark and daylight, the safely settled village and the wild unknown of the woods beyond. The backlash years of the early 21st century revealed to many women something we had always suspected: we had never belonged to that daylight world. We had tried; we had worked; we had been loyal to the rules and values of society as we knew it. But, no matter how far we thought we had come, or how often our mothers told us we could do anything, we still lived within a system that used female bodies as grist to maintain male rule. In the story that patriarchy told about itself, we were always going to be the villains. And if that was the case, we might as well make some magic out of it.

If the village didn’t want us, we might as well head out into the woods.

There is a fire on the horizon. You can see it burning, out on the edges of the world. The violence we have survived can be our guide to what needs to change. The fire that burned the witches can be the fire that lights our way. Our power is waiting for us, out in forbidden spaces, beyond the world of men. Step forward and claim it. Step forward into the boundless and female dark.

Rivetting.

In truth, witchcraft is really just another form of leftist “feel-goodism.” It’s the fantasy that helps the left believe that they’re changing things for the better, though really, they’re just making fools of themselves. A part of them knows that, even if they profess to believe it.

Trump’s win and his impending reelections has and is making people lose it. Those desperate to find something to hold on to as things continue to progress out of their control are going to resort to crazy things to make themselves feel more stable. For many Democrat women, that thing is turning to the dark magic of delusion.

Donald Trump Joins the Internet In Dragging Fredo

Westlake Legal Group TwitterTrump-1-620x349 Donald Trump Joins the Internet In Dragging Fredo Social Media Politics Media Front Page Stories Fredo donald trump democrats CNN Chris Cuomo Allow Media Exception

I’m not sure any news personality has ever done anything so certain to follow them for the rest of their professional lives as CNN anchor Chris Cuomo did yesterday. Not even Dan Rather getting his butt whipped by someone saying, “Kenneth, what is the frequency” comes close.

Cuomo was confronted by a heckler who called him Fredo. Cuomo threatened to thrown the guy down the stairs.

To say Fredo came unglued is an understatement.

Some have complained that confronting Fredo when he was out with his kids was a dick move. That may be true. But, as far as I’m concerned that train left the station quite a while ago with the numerous instances of politicians, media figures, and officials from the right have been treated similarly. What else is a dick move is a father showing his son how a much of a p***y he is by losing his crap in public.

And Fredo has never had any compunction about his own antics. He piled on the kids from Covington Catholic High School in the faux confrontation with Big Chief Stolen Valor and never apologized.

 

And there were other Fredo-esque moves. Like Fredo telling the guys that calling him “Fredo” is  like the n-word–no it isn’t, it’s like calling him a p***y. This is something that Cuomo always brings out to defend himself.

And another major Fredo move when he got CNN to spread the claim that Fredo is an ethnic slur:

Top lock in Cuomo’s name as Fredo for the rest of time, YouTube rode to his rescue and started restricting access to the video.

Under normal circumstances, and by that I mean if you were not named Cuomo and in New York, threatening to throw someone down the stairs is actually a criminal offense. In this case, though, the punishment meted out may be more appropriate than what any judge could have imposed. He got the attention of Donald Trump

Oddly enough, there is a great deal of truth in the last tweet. Watch Fredo’s behavior and see if you think he should be allowed to possess a firearm?

I really can’t wait for the next chapter in this saga to unfold because we haven’t heard the last of the mocking of Fredo.
