Chicago Mass Shooting This Morning. Where is the Democrat Outcry?

Chicago Mass Shooting This Morning. Where is the Democrat Outcry?

Did you hear about the mass shooting? The one in El Paso, where it was “obviously due to President Trump’s rhetoric?” No. Not that one. Oh! The one in Daytona? We don’t know the motives, but the shooter is a registered Democrat, so it must be due to “guns bad!”

No. Not that one either. I’m talking about Chicago, where inside 24-hours of the two above mentioned shootings, there was another mass shooting in a Chicago park early this morning. And in all their haste to bash President Trump, the Democrats are ignoring this one.

From the Chicago NBC5 article,

Seven people were wounded in a shooting Sunday as they gathered in Douglas Park on the West Side.

At about 1:20 a.m. Sunday, a group was standing in the park in the 2900 block of West Roosevelt Road when someone opened fire from a black Camaro, Chicago police said.

This is a regular occurrence in Democrat dominated Chicago. If you look at the numbers, Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore, among many Democrat run cities experience the numerical equivalent of several hundred mass shootings each year.

In 2018, Chicago experienced 2948 shootings (561 murders). If you take the common definition of a mass shooting, 4 or more people injured or killed by gunshot, that’s the equivalent of 624 mass shootings. That’s the equivalent of almost 2 mass shootings each day. In some cases, like this morning, is was an actual mass shooting with 7 casualties.

Where’s the Democrat outcry? Baltimore, MD the home district to Elijah Cummings, has the highest per capita murder rate in the nation with 309 murders recorded in 2018.

Where is the Democrat outrage? Could it be that there is no way to connect them to President Trump and his uncanny ability to point out corruption in Democrat corruption? Could it be that these inner city mass shootings are all in Democrat controlled areas?

These shootings aren’t done by some leftist psychopath as in El Paso. They are direct result of leftist polices that turn American cities into third world dystopian nightmares. Baltimore is an especially egregious example. the entire political machine is Democrat controlled. That machine has made it a point to demean, degrade and operationally disarm police officers.

Baltimore cops are just going through the motions. They will answer calls, but the “self initiated activity” that individual officers were once encouraged for doing, is gone. The crime rate reflects this. That’s why the mainstream press is silent on this weekend’s mass shooting in Chicago…and all the other shootings killing there constituents in Democrat cities.

Jake Tapper Is Stunned That No Actual Republicans Will Come On His Show To Be Objects Of Hate

Yesterday, in the space of some 14 hours, some 29 people were killed and another 60 or so wounded in a pair of mass shootings. The first occurred at a WalMart in El Paso, TX, where a 21-year-old man using some form of AK-47 knockoff killed 20 people. The second took place in a night club district in Dayton, OH. Jake Tapper is devoting an extended version of his State of the Union show to that today because his show sucks and he’ll do just about anything to try to make it relevant. He’s having a problem:

It is really hard to imagine what kind of lack of introspection would allow him to even mention this.

Really.

After the HateFest Tapper organized after the Parkland shooting where he held Senator Marco Rubio and then NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch up to public ridicule…and said noting about the odious actions of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. In fact, he allowed Israel to berate both Rubio and Loesch despite it being know to Tapper at the time that Israel’s lackies had visited the home of the shooter no less than 39 times and taken no action.

Of course, they aren’t going on Tapper’s show. His ratings stink, his network is an arm of the Democrat party, and Jake Tapper, himself, acted like a thug for the gun control movement after Parkland. (By the way, this feels really good because previously I received an “official warning” for saying bad things about Jake Tapper.) You’d have to be a very special kind of moron to go on his show anytime, but in particular today. The fact that the White House and Gregg Abbott’s administration ignored Tapper gives me hope that we do have people who’ve finally learned how to play this game.

Beto O’Rourke Assigns Blame for the El Paso Shooting

Law enforcement work the scene of a shooting at a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019. Multiple people were killed and one person was in custody after a shooter went on a rampage at a shopping mall, police in the Texas border town of El Paso said. (AP Photo/Rudy Gutierrez)

There have been two mass shootings in the past 24 hours, one in El Paso, TX and the other in Dayton, OH. We are still waiting on a lot of details to be made clear. There’s currently a manifesto floating around that hasn’t been confirmed to belong to the first shooter, but regardless, it’s fairly certain what his ideology was.

As always happens after shootings like these, politicians rush to play politics. For many, that takes the form of renewed calls for gun control. What those measures are or how they’d prevent said shootings is almost never made clear. There won’t be any rational conversations taking place over the next few days on possible solutions. Just a lot of painting one’s political opponents as evil.

Beto O’Rourke decided to enter that fray yesterday.

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.

I’m in no mood to talk politics this morning, but I’ll just say this. 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.

This is a one way street of course. When a Bernie supporter shoots up a baseball field, we are quickly assured that accusing Trump of killing people via Obamacare repeal had nothing to do with it. When an Islamic jihadist kills 49 people at a nightclub, he’s described as a “lone wolf” and we are told it’s insensitive and insulting to expect condemnations from Muslims. When an Antifa member tries to firebomb an ICE facility, the media doesn’t even report on it, much less point out he was using the exact rhetoric Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was spreading.

Yet, when a white supremacist perpetuates an act of evil we can never just blame the shooter and the radical ideology being propagated on garbage sites like 8chan. Instead, everything suddenly broadens into every Republican being responsible, including the President. No Republican, including Trump, has ever called people to shoot up Wal-Marts or bars. Period. The person to blame here is the shooter and a gross ideology.

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.

Everyone needs to take a step back right now.

Real Life: Michael Avenatti Says He’s 50/50 On Jumping Into the Presidential Race

Westlake Legal Group 5fb382c4-ea08-419d-b403-be9e085aa8f6-620x317 Real Life: Michael Avenatti Says He’s 50/50 On Jumping Into the Presidential Race primary Politics Michael Avenatti media bias julie swetnick jail indictments Front Page Stories Front Page feds Featured Story FBI donald trump democrats CNN Brian Stelter Brett Kavanaugh Anderson Cooper 2020 election

Just in case you didn’t think the 2020 race was crazy enough, Michael Avenatti told CNBC that he is considering running for President and that there is a 50/50 shot he’ll do so. This would be the same Michael Avenatti that’s currently under multiple federal indictments, including stealing money for a paraplegic.

The report comes per The Daily Caller.

Embattled celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti is revisiting a potential 2020 presidential bid and told CNBC he is “one of the few effective fighters” in the Democratic Party.

“Never say never,” he told CNBC Friday when asked if he might still run in 2020. “The Dems need a non-traditional fighter. They have a lot of talent but not a lot of fighters.”

Avenatti said he puts the odds of running at 50-50, and he will make a final decision in the next few months, CNBC reported Saturday.

“I don’t think I need to make a final decision for a number of months. I have the name ID and everyone knows I’m one of the few effective fighters that the Dems have,” said Avenatti, who adopted the catch phrase “basta,” or “enough,” during his frequent attacks on President Donald Trump.

I’m trying to recall exactly what Avenatti has been so effective at. Yes, he got the better of Michael Cohen, but that case was closed without touching anyone else. Even on the civil side, Trump won the defamation lawsuit and forced Stormy Daniels to pay his legal fees.

On the topic of Brett Kavanaugh, no man was more responsible for seeing to his confirmation than Michael Avenatti. He trotted out an accuser named Jule Swetnick, who not only had no credibility, but whose tales were so unbelievable than even the media had to eventually back off them.

Of course, we’d be remiss to talk about Avenatti without giving credit to those in the media who propelled him to fame. The worst actor in this regard was CNN, who put him on the air over 100 times in just the span of a few months. There was a period where he had a nearly nightly hit on Anderson Cooper’s show. Brian Stelter praised him on his weekend show as a serious Presidential candidate.

Do I think Avenatti will run? I wouldn’t put it past him at this point. He’s obviously a egomaniac with a weighty addiction to the spotlight. There’s also a possibility that he may believe the feds will back off if he’s a candidate for President. I highly doubt that given the indictments have already dropped, but when you are facing decades in prison, rationality doesn’t have to be part of a play.

It’d certainly add a bit more spice to the Democratic field at least.

The Washington Post Sure Looks Like a Russian Asset

Westlake Legal Group AP_17311755872925-620x362 The Washington Post Sure Looks Like a Russian Asset the washington post Russian Propaganda Russian Asset Russian Agent Politics MSNBC Moscow Mitch Mitt Romney Mitch McConnell Hypocrisy Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Barack Obama

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, right, arrive to speak to reporters following a closed-door strategy session that included Vice President Mike Pence, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Mitch McConnell has become the subject of a media onslaught in the past two weeks, starting with MSNBC labeling him “Moscow Mitch” for blocking a partisan election bill. It didn’t matter that the bill in question included unsupportable things like felons voting and federal interference into state elections. All that mattered is McConnell didn’t rubber stamp it so he must be a Russian agent.

This is the level of absurdity currently in our discourse. As I pointed out earlier in the week, Tulsi Gabbard is also now being called a Russian agent because she dared to call out Kamala Harris at a debate. No one is safe from the charge if you find yourself on the opposite side of Democrat party orthodoxy.

The silly attacks on McConnell culminated into what is a current full court press by The Washington Post. This includes a daily churn of multiple opinion pieces all saying the same thing – that the Senate Majority Leader is in hock with the Russians.

Here’s a sampling of that.

This is of course nonsense that ignores McConnell’s history of opposing Russian malfeasance. He’s also been doing so long before most Democrats, who only seemed to learn that Russia existed after the 2016 election. Most everyone remembers Barack Obama and the media relentlessly mocking Mitt Romney for having the audacity to label the Kremlin as our chief geopolitical enemy in 2012. What a rube, right?

Eventually, President Trump would respond by taking a shot back at The Washington Post in defense of McConnell. This of course led to the newspaper that did Putin’s bidding by pushing a massive, false conspiracy theory about Russian collusion to cry foul.

The Post claimed that Trump’s claim was “unfounded.” But was it? Let’s have a look.

What you are seeing are inserts in The Washington Post that were bought and paid for by the Russians. To be clear, the “articles” published by The Post in exchange for Kremlin cash are nothing but propaganda. They run the gambit from promoting censorship, to painting the Russians as the good guys in Crimea, to fluffing for sanctions relief.

Let’s also note this isn’t the first time the Post has been caught profiting from printing garbage fed to them by authoritarian regimes. You can find examples of them doing the same thing for China as well at this link.

Now, the same newspaper that cashed checks from Russia and China to spread their nonsense, often at the cost of American interests, wants to accuse others of being a “Russian asset.” Yeah, they don’t get to do that. Not without their hypocrisy being pointed out. The Washington Post and the media at large have been Putin’s best friend the past three years. Their relentless pushing of Trump-Russia conspiracy theories while swallowing a disinformation campaign wholesale gave the Kremlin exactly what they wanted. The division, discord, and handicapping of the current administration was more than Russia ever dreamed they’d get after election night in 2016.

We could also point out how the Post has been operating as a mouthpiece for Qatar, employing and publishing authors for years that are directly supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and their operations. Pushing Iranian propaganda is also not outside their purview.

If there’s one entity in this country who has no right to call anyone else an “asset” of foreign government, it’s The Washington Post. In fact, the kind of neo-McCarthyism they continue to traffic in only helps the Russians. In reality, that’s not the Post’s concern though. They don’t actually care about the harm they or doing or whether Russia is interfering in elections. No, this is purely partisan politics and they are willing to continue to push trash that is objectively bad for America if it means getting to slap at Republicans. That says nothing good about their dumpster fire of a newspaper.

CNN’s Brian Karem Finally Suspended From the White House After Altercation

Brian Karem, who is inexplicably described as a journalist by CNN, is back in the news again. Let’s recap some of his latest antics.

A few months ago, he got himself into trouble by spreading a fake news story that Trump had a “blank” piece of paper in his hand. This came while the President was announcing an immigration deal with Mexico. Later, photos would show the paper not only contained the language of the agreement, but also the signatures. Karem had pushed a completely false story without even bothering to confirm any details beforehand.

Unfortunately, Karem is not one to ever learn the lesson of humility, especially when none of his media colleagues ever hold him accountable. That led to one of the most ridiculous things you’ll ever see a reporter do on White House property.

In the video, you can see Karem has crossed the barrier and is instigating a confrontation with the crowd. You can hear him say the attendees (who were social media personalities there for a summit) that they are “eager for demonic possession.” He’s also reported to have called them “clowns” because Trump was answering their questions and not his. Things escalate further when he tells Sebastian Gorka to “come on over here brother, we can go outside and have a long conversation,” clearly a reference to having a physical fight. Of course, the media selectively edited the video and pushed a false narrative for much of the lifespan of the story because that’s what they do.

Now, he’s being suspended from White House grounds for 30 days for that incident.

Despite what amounts to a relative slap on the wrist given behavior that should have elicited a life-time ban, Karem is naturally claiming persecution and will sue to contest the suspension.

The most ridiculous part of this isn’t that Karem is who he is. We’ve known for a long time that he’s a loud mouth that has no business being anywhere near the objective news business. No, what’s most ridiculous is that absolutely no one in his profession has the guts to call him out. Perhaps they feel they must maintain a unified front at all times, but you’d think heckling a crowd and challenging someone to a fight might cross the line? I guess not.

No doubt, CNN will continue to misrepresent this story (just as Jim Acosta did the day it happened) but you’d think there’s noway a judge could rule in Karem’s favor given how he conducted himself. White House entry is not an enumerated right. Yet, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if that’s exactly what happened. We live in an era where some judges will rule based singularly on whether it hurts Donald Trump or not, no matter how tortured the decision.

CNN Labels Pastor As Controversial After He Refuses To Attack President Trump

Westlake Legal Group cnn-building-620x465 CNN Labels Pastor As Controversial After He Refuses To Attack President Trump Politics pastor bill ownes Media Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Don Lemon democrats Coalition of African-American Pastors CNN bill owens Allow Media Exception

As I’ve mentioned before there was a (probably) apocryphal story about the British cavalry officer who was so stupid that even the horses had begun to take note. The literary equivalent of that took place on CNN on Monday.

Allegedly, Don Lemon was interviewing a black pastor, Pastor Bill Owens from the Coalition of African-American Pastors. This is the story as told by our own Sister Toldjah: Video: CNN’s Don Lemon Grows Visibly Agitated As Black Pastor Refuses To Take His ‘Trump Is Racist’ Bait.

I say allegedly, because, as far as I know, there is no evidence anyone not in an airport terminal has ever been exposed to Don Lemon. As Sister Toldjah said, Lemon gets agitated as Pastor Owens refuses to stay on the plantation and condemn Trump as a racist. That Lemon is stupid and a shill is not news to anyone. That CNN, long ago, abandoned any pretense of being a news channel in favor of leftwing agitprop is, likewise, documented. What made the Lemon interview so amazing was that even other media outlets noticed the blatant partisanship. Here is Newsweek, keep in mind Newsweek employs Kurt “really, I was discussing tentacle porn with my wife and kids” Eichenwald.

In the segment Monday, host Don Lemon asked Reverend Bill Owens, founder and president of the coalition of African American Pastors, to comment on the closed door meeting he and 19 other black faith leaders had with Trump, after the president criticized Congressman Elijah Cummings.

The Chyron read: “CNN Alert: President Hosts African American Pastors And Faith Leaders At The White House.”

“What did the president say about his attacks against these leaders of color and did any of the faith leaders raise concerns about that?” Lemon said.

The Chyron switched accordingly to: “CNN alert: POTUS Meets With African American Faith Leaders In The Wake Of His Attacks Against Leaders Of Color.”

And when Owens refused to take the racism bait, Lemon changed the subject to Owens’s Scripture-based opposition to homosexual marriage (such as the one Lemon in embroiled in):

At that moment, the Chyron switched to “CNN Alert: “Controversial African American Pastor Meets With President.”

Amy McGrath Mocks Her Own State In Interview As Cocaine Mitch Smiles

Westlake Legal Group AP_18143049834320-620x470 Amy McGrath Mocks Her Own State In Interview As Cocaine Mitch Smiles samantha bee Politics New York mocking Mitch McConnell Kentucky Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats amy mcgrath 2020

Amy McGrath, right, with her husband, Erik Henderson, waves to supporters after being elected as the Democratic candidate for Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District, Tuesday, May 22, 2018, in Richmond, Ky. (AP Photo/James Crisp)

Remember Amy McGrath? She burst onto the scene a few weeks ago as the new hot topic among Democrats. Running against Mitch McConnell is a tall order, but McGrath was going to be the new Beto O’Rourke, taking advantage of a fawning media and Hollywood pumping money into her coffers. NBC News coordinated a hit against McConnell with her campaign launch, allowing McGrath to announce to the glowing approval of Morning Joe.

That euphoria lasted about five minutes because she’s actually just an awful candidate. Just days later, McGrath would change her mind three times on whether she would have voted to confirm Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, Team Mitch started rolling out her old quotes claiming to be the most far left person in Kentucky. That went over about as well as you’d expect in a heavy majority red state.

Obviously, McGrath needed a boost so she did what all sensible people would do. She went on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, because nothing says “I’m a moderate challenger to McConnell” like sitting down with a woman who called Ivanka Trump a ****.

The interview itself was the least of her worries though. It was how and where the interview was conducted that really shows how tone deaf McGrath is.

(video is 23 seconds)

Yes, that’s Amy McGrath being interviewed in a barn, surrounded by fried chicken and parody whiskies while someone picks a banjo. Samantha Bee then sarcastically narrates that this is an “environment that made sure to respect her rich blue grass heritage.” There’s even a horse.

Rule number one in politics? Don’t insult the voters you are needing to bring to your side in order to win your race. Bee’s entire presentation is one giant mockery of Kentucky’s history and culture. For my part, I don’t mind laughing at stereotypes, but from a strategic standpoint, what the heck did I just watch? The path to unseat any incumbent is to position yourself more in line with the voters that your opponent. This accomplishes the opposite. It makes McGrath look like someone who cares more about glad handing with New York elites than the people in her own state.

Mitch McConnell has to be looking on and smiling at this point. He couldn’t have scripted a better start to his re-election effort.

Sorry Dems, Michelle Obama Said She’s Not Running and You’re Stuck With the B-Team

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-13-620x317 Sorry Dems, Michelle Obama Said She’s Not Running and You’re Stuck With the B-Team Politics michelle obama Michael Moore Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats Allow Media Exception 2020

The Democrats are going into 2020 with what I can only describe as an entire roster of kids you’d pick last to be on your team. None of them are particularly fit to be a world leader and are about as outstanding as a cold sore.

That’s why some Democrats, including the likes of “documentarian” Michael Moore, have been letting their eyes wander to other people they believe would be a solid fit. Namely former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Moore said she’d be a great fit based on the fact that she looked really good on her book tour, is currently polled as the most admired woman in America behind Oprah Winfrey, and has been around when President stuff was happening.

That’s pretty much it. She’s not done anything that would merit her becoming the leader of the free world except that she’s well known and looked good on a book tour.

As nonsensical as that wish was, Obama seems to have some sense about her as she’s completely rejected the idea of running for office in any format according to The Hill:

“Just between us, and the readers of this magazine — there’s zero chance,” Obama said in an interview with The National, Amtrak’s travel and culture magazine, that was published Friday.

“There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives. But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me.”

Like I said when this suggestion was first made by Moore, this reveals how Democrats really feel about their 2020 candidates. It’s not good that the left is so desperate for something else that they’re seeking someone from the outside.

To be honest, I can’t blame them. The only person among the 2020 crop of Democrats that remotely strikes my interest is Tulsi Gabbard, but even she falls short thanks to her pro-abortion stance among other things.
