Holy Moley, We’re Toast: ATL’s Democratic Socialists Conference Brings the Most Bizarre 49 Seconds You’ll Hear All Month

Westlake Legal Group 27958605930_c1555d1578_o-620x416 Holy Moley, We’re Toast: ATL’s Democratic Socialists Conference Brings the Most Bizarre 49 Seconds You’ll Hear All Month Uncategorized socialism Russia pronouns millennials Liberty Ignorance Front Page Stories Featured Story Economics democrats Democratic Socialists of America Capitalism Business & Economy AOC Allow Media Exception

 

 

Ever wonder what happens at a Democratic Socialists of America convention? According to an August 3rd post by conservative journalist Andy Ngo, it’s this.

I should point out that I can’t corroborate the accuracy of the video’s bizarre audio. It could have been dubbed; you be the judge.

Here we go…

The clip gives us three vignettes of…I don’t even know what to call it. Let’s just take ’em one-by-one.

At the beginning, a girl is heard asserting the following:

“If we’re going to defeat capitalism, we’re going to need a party that will organize working people to fight for the demands that we want and to win socialism. Thank you so much.”

Do any of the people — does even one single person — in the room know the definition of socialism? And of capitalism?

Let’s review:

capitalism: An economic system based on a free market economy in which an individual may own his or her own business.

socialism: An economic system based on monopoly whereby no one can own a business as the government owns all products and means of production.



 

So here’s the girl’s announcement, translated:

“In order for us to keep ourselves from having the freedom to start our own businesses, we’re going to need a party that will organize working people to fight solely against their own interests and accomplish a society in which none of us have recourse against the quality of products and services offered compared to their price. If we work hard, we can assure that we’re never again given a choice as to what we purchase and for how much. The mechanisms of supply and demand will go away, and a select few occupying term-unlimited seats of power will decide what we get and how much will be taken from us in exchange.”

Someone stood in a room full of people and pushed for that.

How is that possible?

Now on to Part 2.

A man spoke up, asking for everyone to stop triggering him:

“Quick point of privilege. Quick point of privilege. Um, guys…I just wanna say, can we please keep the chatter to a minimum? I’m one of the people who’s very prone to sensory overload. There’s a lot of whispering and chatter going on. It’s making it very difficult for me to focus. Please can we just — I know we’re all fresh and ready to go — but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? It’s affecting my ability to focus. Thank you.”

A woman replied, “Thank you, Comrade.”

Comrade — that’d be, quizzically, the same title used in Donald Trump’s Evil Empire — Russia.

As for the young guy, can his shirt not hold in his spine? Regardless, everyone stop what they’re doing — “I’m,” “me,” “overload,” “very difficult,” “I,” “my.” “Thank you.”

Something tells me he’s no stranger to a participation trophy.

Ready for Part 3?

Presto:

The moderator asks, “Okay, is there a speaker against name and chapter pronouns?”

She’s interrupted by what sounds like a terribly desperate male voice:

“Point of personal privilege, point of personal privilege. PLEASE DO NOT USE GENDERED LANGUAGE TO ADDRESS EVERYONE.”

She affirms, “Okay.”

What has happened to our world? Where has even low-level strength gone? To what end of the earth has education and understanding jetted off?

These are young people — our nation’s future — coming together to fight against their own self-interests via what I must believe is the lack of a dictionary, as they seem to shudder over sounds and one-syllable words.

Goose = Cooked.

Dear Lord.

The Dayton Shooting Is About To Be Memory Holed and That Tells You All You Need To Know About Mass Shootings

Westlake Legal Group dayton-3-j-620x317 The Dayton Shooting Is About To Be Memory Holed and That Tells You All You Need To Know About Mass Shootings walmart shooting Texas Politics patrick crusius Ohio Media Guns gun control Front Page Stories Featured Story El Paso democrats dayton shooting dayton connor betts CNN cielo vista mall Brian Stelter Allow Media Exception 2A

Bodies are removed from at the scene of a mass shooting, Sunday, Aug. 4, 2019, in Dayton, Ohio. Several people in Ohio have been killed in the second mass shooting in the U.S. in less than 24 hours, and the suspected shooter is also deceased, police said. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

On Saturday, in the space of about 14 hours, the nation experienced two mass shootings. One, at a WalMart in El Paso, TX, claimed 20 lives and injured 26. The second, in a nightclub district in Dayton, OH, resulted in 9 dead and 27 wounded. Superficially, the two shootings were fairly similar. In reality, we’re going to hear about El Paso for some time and people will probably have forgotten about Dayton by next Friday just as no one is talking about the shooting in Gilroy, CA, or the slaughter in a government office building in Virginia Beach that left 12 dead. Why would that be?

To understand the gun control debate that erupts around these shootings you have to understand that the gun control people don’t really care about bodies dropping. If they did, they’d have an office in Southside Chicago or West Baltimore or East St. Louis and be holding “take back the night” candlelight vigils with Alyssa Milano as keynote speaker. They aren’t there, despite plenty of dead people, for a good reason. These people only care about a narrative that will help push a gun confiscation agenda.

The narrative is helped with a killer uses an illegally obtained firearm…something that is remarkably rare…but the real narrative is always about race and about politics. So, when DeWayne Antonio Craddock killed a dozen co-workers in Virginia Beach, that story disappeared. Fast. Even though that story had a lot of threads that would have been useful to anyone really interested in preventing mass shootings. For instance, the shooter had a history of physical altercations with co-workers and was the subject of pending disciplinary action. But Mr. Craddock was not white and he didn’t have any political viewpoints that were out of sync with the left. As a result, the media lost interest in that shooting before Mr. Craddock reached room temperature.

Let’s look at the Gilroy shooting. We got of to a rip roaring start there with a lot of Twitter numbnuts declaring him to be a white supremacist and a Trump supporter. Just picking this example out of a slew of offerings by people who are to stupid to go to the toilet unassisted:

The actual situation is a lot more ambivalent. The book they refer to, “Might Makes Right,” it basically a knockoff of or sequel to Friedrich Nietzsche’s “superman” bullsh**. Legan harps on his Iranian heritage. He does make disparaging comments about “mestizos” but he also includes “Silicon Valley twats” along with them. The FBI issued a statement saying he read a lot of political works from the left and right. No narrative, no interest. The story disappears.

This brings us up to Saturday.

Initially, Twitter was full of people claiming that he was a white supremacist and had been at Trump’s Cincinnati rally. Then the facts began to trickle in. Registered Democrat. Favors gun control. Fan of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Hates law enforcement. Antifa booster. Called the moron who tried to blow up the Tacoma ICE facility a “martyr.” Satanist. Had created a “murder” and a “rape” list in high school and populated it with names of classmates. Boom. He’s gone.

Fat little Tater who pretends to do media criticism for CNN, manages to give one passing mention to Dayton in his online newsletter, it is essentially a shrug and “meh.’

Don’t be fooled. Absolutely nothing you’re going to read on the El Paso shooting has diddly-squat or jack-sh** to do with preventing mass shootings. The entire argument is about labeling the shooter a white supremacist and then trying to attach that label to anyone who the media doesn’t like (Beto and Mayor Booty were at it over the weekend) because they oppose banning firearms (again, don’t fool yourself, the agenda is to ban and confiscate firearms and has nothing to do with “commonsense” laws of which we have thousands). If the killer has inconvenient skincolor or politics, the shootings serve no purpose and the gun-grabbers and their media fluffers move on. The Patrick Crusius character fits into this narrative. Connor Betts doesn’t. So El Paso will be harped on and no more will be said about Dayton than about an average weekend in Chicago.

Brian Stelter Keeps a Running Total of Mitch McConnell’s Offers of Thoughts and Prayers Because Journalism

Westlake Legal Group stelterCNN-620x331 Brian Stelter Keeps a Running Total of Mitch McConnell’s Offers of Thoughts and Prayers Because Journalism washington D.C. thoughts and prayers Social Media Politics North Carolina New York Mitch McConnell Media journalism Guns gun control Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Faith democrats Culture & Faith Culture crime CNN Brian Stelter Allow Media Exception

In the immediate aftermath of horrific mass shootings like the ones that happened in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH over the weekend, one of the first orders of business for Democrats is to shut down anyone who says the victims are in their thoughts and prayers.

So it was no surprise to anyone that CNN media firefighter Brian Stelter, who only masquerades as an impartial journalist, adopted a similar tactic and ran with it on Sunday.

Stelter took to the Twitter machine midday yesterday to “report” on at least six different instances where Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) offered prayers to the victims of past shooting tragedies and their respective communities:

Was this supposed to be an act of journalism or something? It sure didn’t appear that way to a number of Twitter users, who took him to task in the comments:

Here was Stelter’s response to the criticism:

Red State‘s Brad Slager and Joe Cunningham weren’t buying what Stelter was selling and let him know it:

Sadly, Stelter is not above such childish mockery, nor is he above blatantly displaying double standards when it comes to holding Democrats and Republicans to the same standards. Case in point:

I wrote this in response to Sen. Cory Booker’s despicable rant against people offering their thoughts and prayers after the UNC Charlotte mass shooting that happened here in April. Re-upping today because it still holds true:

Thoughts and prayers provide an immeasurable feeling of comfort and peace and – for some – answers in the aftermath of tragedy and loss. In the days after the UNCC gunman stormed the Kennedy building at the university, prayer vigils and prayer walks were held on campus. Individually, students held hands, hugged each other, and prayed together.

People all across the city and state – and the nation – offered their thoughts and prayers for Charlotte in the aftermath. As a person of faith myself who was in so much shock after it happened, it provided me comfort and solace as I began the grieving and healing processes.

Any person of faith who has read and studied the Bible knows better than to say that offering up thoughts and prayers is meaningless. It’s reprehensible that Sen. Booker has decided to play the “who is the truuuue person of faith” game but he’s on the campaign trail, so I guess that’s to be expected. Shame.

What’s Stelter’s motivation for playing this game? To carry the left’s water on these issues, naturally, which is par for the course for such a dishonest fraud.

If CNN is trying to earn back the trust they’ve lost with viewers and readers over the years, they sure have a lousy way of showing it.

When the World Saw Death, Beto O’Rourke Saw Potential Approval Points

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-2-620x338 When the World Saw Death, Beto O’Rourke Saw Potential Approval Points Texas shooting Politics Ohio mass shooting Front Page Stories Featured Story elections El Paso donald trump democrats dayton Beto O'Rourke Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

When it comes down to mass shootings I always experienced stacking amounts of anger. The first is that a fellow human being would inflict such harm and suffering on people as they do. I get angry that someone with a soul could have no empathy and shoot an innocent person or a child in cold blood, ending their lives and putting their families through a grief I hope I never have to experience first hand.

Then I get a second bout of anger, because the moment a mass shooting happens, the political opportunists come out of the woodwork. They see the death of innocents, and without missing a beat, turn to harness the power of people’s emotions to push an agenda or create a narrative.

Failed Texas Senate candidate and current 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke did that very thing during interviews after the shooting occurred in his home town of El Paso, Texas.

After commenting first on the tragic shooting, O’Rourke launched into a tirade about the racism of the shooter and how it all just happens to be the fault of his potential — but not likely — opponent in the general elections.

“[Trump] is a racist and he stokes racism in this country,” he said. “And it does not just offend our sensibilities, it fundamentally changes the character of this country and it leads to violence.”

O’Rourke’s tour-de-approval didn’t stop there. Utilizing the fact that he’d be the one put in front of cameras, given it’s his town, O’Rourke continued to use the shooting as an anti-Trump platform on major news networks. CNN’s Jake Tapper asked for a response from O’Rourke about the shooter holding these belief’s before Trump’s time, which was met by a long, awkward silence before he proceeded to blame Trump anyway:

Let’s not mince words right now. This president is encouraging greater racism, and not just the racist rhetoric, but the violence that so often follows. This shooter in the manifesto cites, in part, for his inspiration the shooter in Christchurch, New Zealand, who cites Donald Trump as his inspiration. This anti-immigrant rhetoric – and again, it is not just President Trump, but he’s certainly, as the person in the position of greatest public trust [in] power, most responsible for it. This is Fox News; this is what we’re seeing on the internet; this is the the toleration of intolerance and hatred and racism in this country; this is what is causing what we are seeing here today, and it will continue to happen unless we call it out and unless we change it.

The fact is, O’Rourke isn’t doing well in the polls. He dropped from 3rd behind Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders when the 2020 campaigns first started spooling up but dropped to near last place fairly early.

O’Rourke is desperate for recognition, not just from voters, but from the radical parts of the Democratic party whom he’s been desperately attempting to win approval from for some time. In doing so, he’s going to take Trump out of context about racist quotes he never made and attribute the white supremacy seen from the El Paso shooter to Trump’s supposed support of it.

This is absolutely disgusting. O’Rourke mentions Trump calling immigrants “animals,” but this was a clear reference to the gang MS-13 and it’s efforts to run a crime syndicate in America. In fact, MS-13 was the whole point of Trump’s speech, yet the media utilized it to make it sound like Trump was talking about all immigrants and Democrats like O’Rourke just go with it because it’s politically expedient.

So we have O’Rourke using an atrocity where innocent people were murdered in cold blood, including children, to slam Trump and make himself look good.

By the way, he hasn’t addressed the fact that the Dayton shooter was a hard-left socialist who loved Elizabeth Warren and Antifa. For some reason, he hasn’t spoken up about that. I wonder why.

Up till now, I always thought O’Rourke was just an awkward afterthought in the 2020 Democratic race, but now I full-on think he’s a disgusting huckster with no shame.

Trump Calls For Expanding Background Checks, But Wants Legislation Tied To Immigration Reform

President Donald Trump took to Twitter early Monday morning to signal his openness to expanding background checks on gun purchases.

In response to the tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump called for bipartisan legislation that would strengthen (likely through expansion) background checks for gun purchases, an already contentious proposal by legislative standards, but called for it to be tied to an equally contentious policy: reforming immigration.

Expanding background checks is not a new position for Trump, who prior to running for president had been a proponent of action on gun control. However, tying such legislation to immigration reform could prove contentious in Congress.

Gun lobbyists will see expanding the background check system as a loss, prompting Republicans to be wary, at best, of the president’s proposal. Democrats, meanwhile, have been extremely reluctant to give up any ground in the immigration battle. As a result, the president’s call to action may have no effect on Congressional plans.

The president’s call, however, is a notable one. Few Republican leaders go this far when it comes to responding to mass shootings in the United States – fewer still are Republican presidents who do. It could mark a shift in how Republicans address the issue, ceding some ground to the Democrats. The Democrats, however, could likely see immigration reform as ceding much more ground to the Republicans and refuse to negotiate.

The shootings in Texas and Ohio have once again prompted fierce outcries against gun proliferation in the United States.

El Paso Shooter Supports Leftist Policy

The El Paso Shooter may or may not be a Trump supporter, but his manifesto clearly makes him a Democrat.

We are all quite rightly horrified by not just one, but two brutal mass shootings yesterday/early today. As professional political pundits, we should of course wait until some of the smoke clears before we mount up and sashay into battle over this if nothing else, to make sure we don’t get caught with egg on our faces by promoting falsehoods. After all, that’s a leftist technique. My good friend and colleague Bonchie makes the same point here.

Starting with his very proper condemnation of Robert O’Rourke, Democrat Presidential candidate.

Currently sitting near the bottom of the Democratic field, I suppose Beto felt the need to make headlines. Blaming the President for a mass shooting will do the trick.

We still don’t even know the full scale of this maniac shooter’s ideology and people are already rushing to blame Trump and all Republicans because that’s what they always do.

Beto O’Rourke is not a serious person. To come out and try to make this about himself by ranting for the cameras that the President is a racist who is responsible for this shooting is simply disgusting. It’s standing on the bodies of the dead to try to try to help yourself politically and deserves condemnation.

His final point.

Everyone needs to take a step back right now.

I respectfully disagree. As information comes out we need to analyze it and act on it. As the old saw goes (many variants)

“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”

This is no different, with the Democrats and their fellow travelers likening President Trump and his supporters as Nazis—and worse.

The Leftists are very good at deflection. In that vein and with the very strong caveat that the “manifesto” is actually the product of the El Paso Shooter, I’m going to put on my pants to try and head off some of the more outrageous claims by the left. Note: if it does come out that the manifesto is bogus, your humble scribe will, in a stand alone article, apologize for this one. We Conservatives don’t hide our corrections way back in Section D, in and amongst the personal ads.

First of all, I’ve read the manifesto several times. The major impression I have of it, is that it is through and through, a leftist screed. Major portions of it have been long espoused by the Democrats. Representative Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez and her crew are driving today’s Democrat Presidential field even farther in that direction.

First, there’s the racial aspect, where the killer advocates keeping all immigrants out. That of course, has never been a Conservative or a Trump position. Legal immigration that benefits America and Americans has been the position since…forever. Moreover, a policy of racial superiority, has long been a provenance of the Democrats. Margaret Sanger, (im)famous eugenicist, is an icon of “Planned Parenthood,” a combination infanticide-baby parts retail operation.

Segregation, is another leftist policy espoused by the El Paso murderer. Democrats supported segregation during Jim Crow. Today, Leftists on college campuses are demanding segregated dorms, classes and even final exams. This killer merely takes an old Democrat ideal to the next level, absent the elimination of immigration, demanding the U.S. be divided into ethnic territories.

His so called, “manifesto” also advocates for universal basic income and government funded health care, which are certainly not conservative platforms.

Democrats, when they can’t win at the ballot box or in the courts, resort to unspeakable violence. ANTIFA, the current enforcement arm of the Democrat Party, riots in the streets, trashes stores and beats elderly Trump supporters bloody. Not satisfied with legal infanticide up until birth, the Democrats even support the murder of a child who through the grace of God, manages to survive that evil procedure they camouflage as, “reproductive health.”

The El Paso Shooter is a direct manifestation of Democrat philosophy. To egregiously paraphrase Winston Churchill,

“This wicked political party, the repository and embodiment of many forms of soul-destroying hatred. This monstrous product of former wrongs and shame.”

CA Dept Of Corrections Omits Arrest Records From Kamala Harris’ Tenure As Attorney General In Recent ‘Website Redesign’

Westlake Legal Group Kamala-laughing-620x351 CA Dept Of Corrections Omits Arrest Records From Kamala Harris’ Tenure As Attorney General In Recent ‘Website Redesign’ tulsi gabbard kamala harris Front Page Stories democrats crime Campaigns California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Allow Media Exception 2020 Democratic Debate (second) 2020

(AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)

 

Perhaps the biggest takeaway from either night of last week’s Democratic presidential debate was Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s (D-HI) shock attack on Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) prosecution record during her tenure as California’s Attorney General.

Gabbard stated that Harris’ criminal prosecution record was concerning. Specifically Gabbard noted:

She put over 1500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she’d ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California. And she fought to keep the cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.

Rather than defending her record after the humiliating takedown, Harris who is/was a top tier candidate prior to the debate, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “Well, I mean, listen, this is going to sound immodest, but I’m obviously a top tier candidate. So, I did expect that I would be on the stage and take hits tonight because there are a lot of people who are trying to make the stage for the next debate. Especially when people are at zero or one percent or whatever she might be at.”

Naturally, voters are curious to dig into Harris’ records to find out for themselves if Gabbard’s allegations are accurate. But they will have difficulty finding that information.

As recently as April 25, 2019, ten years of arrest data was easily accessible on the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) website. However, a “redesign” has conveniently eliminated all arrest records from the website prior to Spring 2019.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Charles Fain Lehman reports:

The department removed public access to a number of reports on incarceration in the state, including when presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D.) was California’s attorney general. Twice a year, the CDCR releases information about the number of new individuals incarcerated in the California prison system as part of its “Offender Data Points” series. These reports provide important information on demographics, sentence length, offense type, and other figures relevant to criminal justice and incarceration.

Until recently, these reports were publicly available at the CDCR’s website. A search using archive.org’s Wayback Machine reveals that as of April 25, 2019—the most recent indexed date—ODP reports were available dating back to the spring of 2009. As of August 2019, the same web page now serves only a single ODP report, the one for Spring 2019. The pre-2019 reports have been removed.

The changes matter because the reports contain information about Harris’s entire time as state A.G., 2011 to 2017.

Lehman spoke to Jeffrey Callison, CDCR’s assistant secretary for communications, who said, “the changes were unrelated to her campaign, and were prompted by AB 434, a California law setting standards for web accessibility.”

Callison told Lehman:

Making our website fully compliant was a significant and ongoing undertaking. It required a redesign of the look and feel of the website, and a need to evaluate all of the thousands of documents and other files that were linked to our website.

He said the older reports are still publicly accessible and that some information was only temporarily removed.

While many documents that are not accessible can be remediated, it is a significant use of resources to do it across the board. Some older documents have been removed from our website but are still available upon request; others are temporarily removed while they are being remediated; and many others have already been remediated and are on our website.

Callison indicated that “the documents are still available upon request via email to data.requests@cdcr.ca.gov.”

Michael Moore Names the One Person Who Could Beat Trump in 2020. But So Far, They’re Not Running

Westlake Legal Group usd-2874026_1280-620x349 Michael Moore Names the One Person Who Could Beat Trump in 2020. But So Far, They’re Not Running wealth Uncategorized riches Politics michelle obama Michael Moore Larry King Hypocrisy Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Barack Obama Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

Michael Moore is a guy full of opinions. For example, he thinks capitalism is bad. And, oh yeah — he thinks he should be a capitalist. ‘Cause he is.

He also thinks rich capitalist people are bad. He also thinks he should be one of ’em — he’s worth $50 million.

Michael once asserted to Larry King:

“[I]’ve covered a number of issues and different things. But it all seems to come back to this one issue of ‘follow the money.’ Who’s got the money? And whoever has the money has the power. And right now, in America, tonight, Larry, the richest 1 percent have more financial wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined.”

To that, Larry asked, “You’re in that 1 percent, though?”

HEY, LOOK — A SQUIRREL!

He replied, “I don’t think I’m in that 1 percent, but I make documentary films.”

Uhhh…

Anyway, to whatever degree his big statements are worthy of consideration, Moore has a message for America: He knows who can take down Donald Trump.

And it’s the President’s worst nightmare: a non-white woman.

Yet, unfortunately for those sick of the Trumpster, she isn’t running.

In an interview with MSNBC, the multi-millionaire who makes multi-millions by raging against multi-millionaires who make multi-millions delivered his antidote for America’s Trumpitis. He served up the one person who can unpresident the President:

“In fact, it is Obama — Michelle Obama. Everybody watching this right now knows she is a beloved American, and she would go in there and she would beat him.”

Well, she’s indeed beloved among Democratic voters. Swing voters? Not as certainly.

Ever notice that some people get their party’s favoritism mixed up with the whole of the nation’s?

To many, Michelle’s a member of the ultra-Left — not necessarily a moderate’s dream, much less palatable to the rest.

Nevertheless, Michael says Mrs. Obama would dominate:

“She would beat him in the debates. He wouldn’t be able to bully her, he wouldn’t be able to nickname her. … She takes the stage, and she’s so powerful and so good, you just look at that and think, ‘Of course she could win.’”

Who’s “you”?

We’re back to that “assuming everyone sees it the way you do” thing.

But I don’t mean to suggest Michelle couldn’t win. Perhaps she could.

According to a July YouGov poll, she is — after all — the “most admired woman in the world.”

Melania placed third.

But — the poll was conducted in 41 countries. That means a lot of the voters are likely only familiar with the former First Lady via the American press. And if 2016 taught us anything, it’s that American voters don’t give a hoot about what the left-wing media has to say.

Still, the lady’s got charisma. And a following.

Maybe Michael should pick up his phone. He told MSNBC he believes Michelle would take one for the team if the request was made:

“[H]as anyone asked her? If asked to serve, I believe she would serve.”

I doubt he’s correct. Speaking to CBS This Morning’s Gayle King in July, she referred to Barack’s presidency as eight years of “watching [her] husband get raked over the coals” (here).

Maybe Michael should run. He’s a rich capitalist white male one-percenter. Perfecto!

Kamala Harris Is Already Fundraising Off the Mass Shootings

This is just gross.

Kamala Harris, who got demolished in last week’s Democratic debate, is now fundraising off the dead less than 24 hours after two mass shootings took place. This was sent out before we even had any real facts about how the guns were obtained.

Disgustingly, the subject of the email was “No More Thoughts and Prayers.”

The names of the dead had not even been released yet before Harris’ campaign pushed this email out touting her ability to take action as President. This mimic’s Beto O’Rourke’s egomaniacal media blitz this morning, where he blamed President Trump for the shootings and riffed on how racist he is.

Even if a person is so nakedly partisan and deluded as to think these acts are the fault of someone other than the shooters, now is not the time to mouth off in order to score political points. Yet, that’s exactly what these 2020 candidates are doing. They are fundraising and attempting to gain media exposure standing on the dead bodies of the victims. It’s obscene.

NEW: The Dayton Shooter Was a Satanist, Leftist-Socialist, and Bernie/Warren Fan, Supported Antifa

This is probably something CNN won’t be sharing with it’s audience, but there’s some pretty striking news on the shooter who perpetrated the Dayton, OH shooting, which followed an equally tragic shooting in El Paso, TX.

Heavy.com got access to the shooter’s social media. Contrary to the media narrative currently boiling over, this shooter was not a Trump fan. In fact, he hated Trump, hated Republicans, was an avowed leftist, used antifa style language in his posts, and loved Elizabeth Warren.

Here’s some of what was found.

Bett’s Twitter profile read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” One tweet on his page read, “Off to Midnight Mass. At least the songs are good. #athiestsonchristmas.” The page handle? I am the spookster. On one selfie, he included the hashtags, “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting.” On the date of Republican Sen. John McCain’s death, he wrote, “F*ck John McCain.”

On Nov. 2, 2018, he wrote: “Vote blue for gods sake.”

Ironically, he was even a rabid supporter of gun control, using it to levy attacks against Republicans.

“This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December 2018. And, “’Tis! The pistol is a Beretta 93R, called the REK7 in BO4. Do love me some guns!” He also wrote, “Hammer, brick, gun.” On Feb. 14, 2018, he tweeted this at Sen. Rob Portman: “@robportman hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?” That was the date of the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida…

…“This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December 2018. And, “’Tis! The pistol is a Beretta 93R, called the REK7 in BO4. Do love me some guns!” He also wrote, “Hammer, brick, gun.” On Feb. 14, 2018, he tweeted this at Sen. Rob Portman: “@robportman hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?” That was the date of the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida.

He also used language often used by Antifa, exclaiming that he wants to “kill every fascist.”

“#2016ElectionIn3Words This is bad,” he wrote on Nov. 8, 2016. “You can’t kill 50+ people and injure 600(!) In 10 minutes with cigarettes my dude,” he wrote in 2017. In response to a Buzzfeed story that read, “Virginia has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of the “Unite the Right” rally anniversary in Charlottesville this weekend,” he wrote: “Kill every fascist.”

Betts was also a politically active socialist who supported Elizabeth Warren.

On the Twitter page, Connor Betts indicated he’d vote for Elizabeth Warren for president but not Kamala Harris, responding to a person’s tweet suggesting they be co-presidents. “Nahh, but only cuz Harris is a cop – Warren I’d happily vote for,” he wrote.

He responded to a person’s tweet that read “if you nominate anyone other than sanders, you’re going to lose” by writing, “I think Warren has a decent shot, as well.” Some of his tweets referred to guns.

He was also a fan of “The Squad,” Including Rep. Ocasio Cortez and Rep. Omar.

He shared an article that criticized Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi for not supporting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley. “Read it,” he wrote. He shared posts about “concentration camps” at the border and wrote, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”

He retweeted a post from another person about stealing from “right wingers” at a Trump rally.

This all leaves very little question about who Betts really was. He was absolutely a far leftist. He was not a white supremacist and hated religious people. He repeated antifa, as well as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talking points on his social media. He was a global warming enthusiast and an avowed socialist. Every piece of evidence we have that points to his radicalization points to the rhetoric of the left, not the right.

To be clear, my personal opinion is that the shooter is responsible here, not anyone else. It’s a dangerous game to try to play “pin the blame on the politician” when someone crazy does something evil. But this is the game the Democrats and media are demanding we play. We’ve been bombarded with op-eds and posts the past 24 hours blaming Trump and Republicans for these shootings. That’s a road that goes both ways and it’s fairly clear the Dayton shooter was radicalized by the politics of Democrats and Antifa.

Now that we’ve learned all this, you can expect the media to stop talking about this particular shooting and focus solely on the El Paso shooting. Why? Because this isn’t about actual care for victims. It’s about disgusting politics.
