Mike Lindell of “My Pillow” Isn’t Running Against Ilhan Omar, but He Is Going to Turn Minnesota Red

Westlake Legal Group 6931076a-2dbe-4159-9b92-2b57f544e4b5-620x317 Mike Lindell of “My Pillow” Isn’t Running Against Ilhan Omar, but He Is Going to Turn Minnesota Red republicans republican Politics My Pillow Minnesota Mike Lindell Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats democrat Allow Media Exception

Mike Lindell has accomplished many things. He’s overcome drug addiction and founded a rehabilitation network, produced the pro-life movie “Unplanned,” but is most commonly known for his amazing product “My Pillow,” which America swears by when it comes to a comfortable sleep.

Now he may become known as the guy who helped boot Rep. Ilhan Omar from her seat.

Omar, a prominent member within “The Squad” has been on the bad side of the public lately, but that’s going to happen when you refuse to denounce terrorist groups that have killed thousands of innocent Americans and consistently prove yourself to be antisemitic and racist.

Just yesterday, a video surfaced from last year of Omar saying that white men should be feared over terrorists. She also blanketed blame over all of Trump’s supporters for being racist simply for supporting Trump.

Rumors began to circulate around Lindell running for her seat, causing quite a stir.

Sadly, Lindell won’t be running for office against Omar. Appearing on Fox and Friends, Lindell said that while he won’t be challenging Omar directly, he is going to do everything in his power to turn Minnesota red, this includes booting Omar out.

From Mediaite:

“The answer is not at this time,” Lindell said. “If the Lord wanted me to run I would run, and it was like all of these yesterday I was bombarded in the news, they’re going ‘We heard you’re with run we heard you’re running.’ I would love to do it. But I’ve got such a big platform going on right now and I want to help the president help — help turn Minnesota completely red, and get right people in office to be one of the amazing states in the country.”

Lindell went on to talk about how his Christian values have played a large part in his decision making, and part of that is respecting what America is all about, something that Omar doesn’t respect. Being from Minnesota, Lindell says the state is up to some great things and would rather it not be boiled down to Omar’s behavior.

This may be disappointing for many, but perhaps it is better overall. Lindell’s advocacy for various causes has a high success rate, and if he does put efforts into turning Minnesota red, it’s possible that he’ll succeed from the background.

TX Rep. Chip Roy Berates House Dems In Hearing Over White House ‘Fishing Expedition,’ Storms Out

Freshman Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) was angry that the House Oversight Committee had voted to subpoena the private email and social media records from Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and other top White House officials. He berated the House Democrats for their latest “fishing expedition” and wanted to know when they would start working on behalf of the American people. Finally, Roy stormed out of the meeting.

According to Politico, House Democrats believe that several White House officials may have conducted government business over their private social media platforms which would be a violation of the Presidential Records Act.

I have to say, he had a point.

Here is what he had to say.

We’re not doing anything to stop and deal with the problems we got, with cartels managing the border. We’re sitting here in a fishing expedition for emails, alleging that we’re trying to do that in compliance with the law that’s being complied with.

In what universe is this what we’re supposed to be doing for the United States of America, for the people in this country who are watching their country racking up mountains of debt — $320 billion over existing spending levels, which would still give us a trillion dollar deficit. Well done, Congress. Well done.

Why are we doing this because they’re working with us to comply with the law to turn over information to follow what the chairman was just saying. In the meantime, while we are doing this, while we are sitting here, as I’ve pointed out before for the hour we’re going to be debating this, another $100 million of debt has been racked up. Another how many thousands of people have poured across our border. How much more control have we yielded to cartels who truly control and run our border? That’s what we’re dealing about.

And you’re going to have that kind of level of spending while we’ve got wide open borders — what are we doing for the people of the United States? I’m going to be told ‘oh, we’re protecting the law,’ [but] the law’s being complied with — when instead it’s a fishing expedition for political purposes.

Here we sit, mounting up debt for our children and grandchildren … it’s extraordinary. Wide open borders destroying communities, endangering the lives of Americans in south Texas while I get smirks from my Democratic colleagues, while there are people right now facing attacks from cartels.

Dealing with it on a daily basis and we get smirks, and we get requests for emails from people in the White House. This is the face of the Democratic Party. This is the face of your Congress today, America.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA), the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, was not amused. He said, “I do just want to say shame on my colleague from Texas.”

Roy said, “shame on this body. You’ll continue to hear from me in defense of this country.” Then he stormed out of the room.

A female voice is heard saying “he’s taking his ball and going home.”

Apparently, Roy is known for being a bit of a firebrand. In other words, he’s done this before.

Kudos to the Congressman for pushing back against the House Democrats.

Watch the video.

Environmental Evangelist Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Attacked by a Woke Warrior for Not Being Sexist Enough

If you’re all about global warming and want to save the world, go live naked in the woods.

That’s the best thing you could do. If you were to, let’s say…make a movie instead, you’d be worsening the situation.

Movie marketing and production = Trucks, manufacturing, and air travel. Film success = Millions of people driving in their cars to business-generating theaters.

Riches due to film success = Purchases and travel.

Naked in the woods = You’re GOLDEN.

Still, despite his lack of subscription to my above ideas, actor Leonardo DiCaprio does in fact champion efforts to fight climate change. He’s a voice on the side of environmentalism.

That would seem enough to make him a hero among Democrats.

But these days, not so fast, Mister. Sure — he’s friends with Al Gore…but honestly, how utterly woke is he?

Not enough for The Guardian film critic Guy Loge — at least in the way of judging artists according to their sex rather than their skillset.

Guy ripped Leo on Twitter in response to The Hollywood Reporter’s praise of America’s “last movie star”:

“This is all well and good, and some fine work has come out of it, but I wouldn’t call his choices adventurous either: huge studio prestige productions with established male directors. He hasn’t acted in a film with a female director since 1995, which I don’t think is an insignificant fact.”

So there ya go: Leo has a responsibility to be sexist.

At least one user agreed:

But there was also this:

One tweeter pointed out — quite convincingly, I believe — that Leo is indeed adventurous:

Back to Guy’s post, what is happening to our world? As I wrote previously, feminism has, in some circles, become chauvinism: It’s now judging women according to their abilities to be and do as men (here).

Similarly, presuming Guy is correct, if a man doesn’t judge women by what’s between their legs, they’re sexist.

We’re living in weird times, folks.

Snopes Just Fact Checked Babylon Bee Again and This Time It Crossed the Line

Westlake Legal Group snopes-fake-news-sites-620x344 Snopes Just Fact Checked Babylon Bee Again and This Time It Crossed the Line Snopes Rep. Erica Thomas Georgia Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats comedy Chick-Fil-A Babylon Bee Adam Ford

Normally, when Snopes fact checks satire sites, it’s kind of ridiculous and fun to laugh at. This time, however, Snopes went further than just fact-checking an article.

Once again, Snopes has thrown its super sleuths into action and made sure that the American public wasn’t at all fooled by those dastardly Republicans and their nefarious sense of humor. This time the site wanted to squash a claim that

The Bee decided to make fun of Georgia State Rep. Erica Thomas, who was recently in a bit of a controversy for claiming someone had told her to go back to her country in an altercation at a Publix, but later was found out to have been lying. Thomas even admitted as such.

In true form, the Bee wrote a satirical article about the adventures of Thomas.

The article was headlined “Georgia Lawmaker Claims Chick-Fil-A Employee Told Her To Go Back To Her Country, Later Clarifies He Actually Said ‘My Pleasure’,” and describes a similar incident to the one Thomas claimed to have encountered in the Publix, only with a funnier spin:

Georgia state rep Erica Thomas took to social media this weekend to express her disgust and outrage at a Chick-fil-A employee’s comments to her in the restaurant’s drive-thru. According to her viral Twitter post, the black state worker claims that after saying thank you for her food, the white cashier pointed his finger at her and angrily shouted, “Go back to your country!”

The Bee wrote that after Chick-fil-A did some investigating, it found out that Thomas’s claim was a total lie, including what was actually said to her and the race of the person saying it.

Clearly a comedic take on the absurdity of Thomas’s actions mixed with the meme that is Chick-fil-A’s kindness.

But Snopes doesn’t seem to understand how humor works or why it’s even a thing in the first place. Their “fact-check” article begins with one of the most elitist and stuffy subtitles I’ve ever seen on an article.

“We’re not sure if fanning the flames of controversy and muddying the details of a news story classify an article as “satire.”,” writes Snopes author Dan Evon.

Evon rated the Bee’s story as “False”…because…well, yeah.

Evon then says that the satirical website has fooled people in the past and lists a number of links to those who have been fooled by this post by the Bee in particular, forgetting half the fun of satirical sites are writing humorous fiction that drifts close enough to reality that it becomes a distorted mirror of it.

Snopes ends with making sure everyone is clear about what is real and what isn’t:

Since the line between fact and fiction here is a bit blurry, let’s quickly summarize what’s true and what’s false in regards to the lawmaker controversy:

What’s true: Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas claimed that she was verbally assaulted by a man at a Publix store who told her to “go back” where she came from. The man admitted that he cursed at Thomas, but he denied making the “go back” remark.

What’s false: In the fictional Babylon story, the event took place at a Chick-fil-A and involved an employee, not a fellow customer.

Well, let’s all thank Snopes for doing the Lord’s work and making sure that we all know that fake comedic websites make fake comedic stories.

However, the part that makes this particular “fact-check” from Snopes really bad is the fact that they assign malicious motives to the Bee for releasing this story. Instead of taking this as a light-hearted effort to make humorous something serious — as is the Bee’s job to do — Snopes makes it seem as the Bee was doing this to intentionally spread deceit and ruin someone. Evon even takes a swipe at Chick-fil-A for no particular reason.

Babylon Bee founder Adam Ford lays this out superbly in a series of tweets.

Interestingly, Snopes does not assign motive to articles that come from other satirical sites like The Onion.

Snopes has been proven to be a left-leaning site, even going so far as to blatantly lie about some of its “facts” if it helps damage the right at all.

This time, however, Snopes didn’t just stop at lying about the facts. It assigned villainous motive to the Bee for a satirical article about a Democrat. For a site that is supposed to just deal in the facts, saying that a site had malicious intent to purposefully convince everyone that a lie was true is far beyond what its professed goal is supposed to be.

Seeing as how Snopes bills itself as a safe haven for the facts and nothing but the facts, this article is essentially claiming that it’s a solid fact that the people who write at the Babylon Bee are bad people with ill intent.

I hate to sound cliche, but I don’t just rate Snope’s “fact-check” here as false, but the entire self-professed reason for Snopes’s existence to be false.

“I Wasn’t Even Here”: Portland Mayor Gives Unacceptable Excuses for His Leadership Failures on Antifa Violence

Westlake Legal Group andy-ngo-assault-SCREENSHOT-620x331 “I Wasn’t Even Here”: Portland Mayor Gives Unacceptable Excuses for His Leadership Failures on Antifa Violence Social Media Social Justice Warriors Politics Oregon North Carolina mob rule mob Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture crime antifa Andy Ngo attack Andy Ngo Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

Antifa assaults independent journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, OR. – 6/29/19. Screenshot from The Oregonian.

Portland, OR Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) has faced a wave of criticism in recent months over the rise in Antifa violence that on some weekends has turned the city into what looks like a war zone.

That criticism intensified in the aftermath of the vicious Antifa attack against independent journalist Andy Ngo on June 29th. Ngo was beaten up and milkshaked, suffering head injuries that will require ongoing medical treatment and various therapies.

Wheeler sat down for an interview this week with Oregon’s Fox 12 and acknowledged that “the game plan we’ve been using up to this point is no longer effective.” He also gave some of the most embarrassing and unacceptable excuses I have ever heard an elected official give for why things are only getting worse in his city on his watch.

First, after being asked about the statement from Portland Police Association President Daryl Turner, who asked the mayor to untie the police’s hands so they could do their jobs, Wheeler pulled an AOC/Squad move by saying the criticism led to threats against him and his team members:

Turner wrote, in part, the mayor needs to “remove the handcuffs from our officers and let them stop the violence through strong and swift enforcement action.”

“It definitely lit the powder keg,” Wheeler told FOX 12. “Every one of my team members was threatened by violence.”

In other words, Portland police officers, your criticisms are putting me and my staff in harm’s way. So shut up.

When asked about Sen. Ted Cruz’s blistering criticism of his handling of the violence in the city, here’s what Wheeler said:

Even national figures weighed in on the controversy. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz called for a federal investigation into the mayor’s alleged actions accusing him of allowing citizens to be attacked by “domestic terrorists.”

“I thought it was beneath a United States senator,” Wheeler said. “The truth is, I wasn’t even here. I wasn’t even in the United States. I was with my family in Ecuador on a wildlife tour.”

“I wasn’t even here”? I’m sorry, but that’s just pathetic. This has been an ongoing issue, and the police there have been begging him to let them do their jobs instead of being told to “stand down.” He could have taken the cuffs off of Portland’s officers a long time ago. A long time before that family trip to Ecuador.

Watch Wheeler’s interview below:

He said he’s running for reelection in 2020. Portland hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1980, so the chances of that happening in 2020 are pretty much zero. But at this point, Wheeler’s press is so bad that a Democratic primary challenger just might have a decent chance at defeating him.

Stay tuned.

Anyone familiar with Norm Macdonald knows the comedian doesn’t talk about politics unless there’s a context of abject silliness.

But holy cow — the comedian addressed Bette Midler Wednesday eye-to-tweeting-eye:

See even more celebrity backlash in Sister Toldjah’s “‘Blackground’: TDS Sufferer Bette Midler Blasted By Other Celebs After Racist Rant About Black Trump Supporters.”

Bette’s really stirrin’ it up on Twitter, and it’s not the singer’s first time.

Submitted for your approval:

There’s a certain shrill to Bette’s social media presence at times, and it’s duplicated by millions across the webisphere. Given the recent dustup, I thought it’d be worthwhile to revisit a three-year-old tweet of hers and the cultural and political value of what she was opposing.

On August 6, 2016, the Beaches star posted, “Well, I’m now over my 50-year-old Clint Eastwood crush!”

EGAD — a 50-year killer.

To what was she referring? It was the terror of Hollywood legend Clint’s interview with Esquire.

Our culture, as I see it, has become punishingly weak. People are falling apart over pronouns and demanding affirmation; words are being labeled violence; some are touting the world’s impending doom; a sizable mass is evidently paralyzed by a White House run which will — as all do — pass in due time. The American spine appears to be withering.

In ’16, Clint was asked what he thought about the gnashing of teeth over one Donald J. Trump.

He reminded us to put on our Big Boy pants:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody. I haven’t talked to Trump. I haven’t talked to anybody. You know, he’s a racist now because he’s talked about this judge. And yeah, it’s a dumb thing to say. I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides. But everybody—the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist, and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f***ing get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Esquire offered, “Your characters have become touchstones in the culture, whether it’s Reagan invoking ‘Make my day’ or now Trump … I swear he’s even practiced your scowl.”

Clint gave the far Left a bit of What For:

“Maybe. But he’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. And then when I did Gran Torino, even my associate said, ‘This is a really good script, but it’s politically incorrect.’ And I said, ‘Good. Let me read it tonight.’ The next morning, I came in and I threw it on his desk and I said, ‘We’re starting this immediately.’”

Clint’s onto something. He really is.

A Media Outlet Finally Dug Into the Epstein-Clinton Ties, and Surprise, Clinton Lied Again

Westlake Legal Group 34_politics002-drew-angerer-edited-580.v1-620x414 A Media Outlet Finally Dug Into the Epstein-Clinton Ties, and Surprise, Clinton Lied Again the daily beast sex abuse relationship Politics Pedophile Island lying Jeffrey Epstein Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page flights Featured Story evil Disgusting democrats democrat contacts connections Bill Clinton

Over the past few weeks, I wrote a few pieces pointing out the absurdity of the media’s coverage of the Jeffrey Epstein travesty.

For the opening act, the major networks and papers were really interested. Why? Because there was a member of Trump’s administration that worked on Epstein’s sweetheart plea deal. That was all the hook the media needed to make the story about Donald Trump.

But then something happened. Alex Acosta resigned and the hook was gone. Suddenly, the media didn’t care anymore. The story died overnight because there was no longer a vehicle to attack Trump, so who cares, right?

A little less than a week later, they had their hook again though. A meaningless, irrelevant video emerged showing Donald Trump dancing awkwardly at a party in 1992 and it suddenly put Epstein back on the front page. You see, Trump had briefly conversed with Epstein at this party, along with hundreds of other people. Scandalous right? It didn’t matter that no relevant connections between Epstein and Trump actually existed. Yes, they knew each other. Epstein also knew every other member of New York high society. In fact, Trump would ban Epstein from his resort over a decade later after he was made aware of predatory conduct. Not only that, he went to the police and helped the victim. What a monster.

While the media were laser focused on whatever they could do to make Epstein’s evil an Orange Man Bad story, the real news continued to be ignored. Namely, that Bill Clinton had been on Epstein’s plane multiple times, without secret service, and with underage girls on board. This got a slight mention in a Vanity Fair piece, which inexplicably focused on Donald Trump being told there were picture of Clinton on Epstein’s pedophile island. You’d think the big news wouldn’t be Trump being told that but that there were possibly pictures of Clinton on an island famous for sex trafficking and child rape. But nah, Vanity Fair didn’t even push the issue. They published Clinton’s denial and went back to riffing irrelevancy about Trump.

Perhaps the tide is turning though. Today, we’ve finally got a major media outlet doing some investigative work on the connections between Epstein and Clinton.

If you’ll recall, the former President put out this statement a few weeks back.

Now, we already know Clinton is lying about the flights, as the logs do not match up with what he says and that there were at least seven flights taken without his staff and secret service. That seems like a pretty big deal, but the media (outside of a few conservative outlets) hasn’t touched it for obvious reasons.

Further though, Clinton’s statement gives the impression that he barely knew Epstein and that their relationship was limited. He lists his only other encounter as being a brief meeting in 2002.

Surprise, surprise, according to The Daily Beast, Clinton lied again.

How Epstein entered Clinton’s orbit remains unclear. When the president released his initial statement on Epstein, he did not explain the multiple other trips he appears to have taken on the financier’s plane—including one flight to Westchester with Epstein, his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell, and an “unnamed female.”

Clinton also failed to mention the intimate 1995 fundraising dinner at the Palm Beach home of Revlon mogul Ron Perelman, where Clinton hobnobbed with the likes of Epstein, Don Johnson, and Jimmy Buffett. (Nearby, at Epstein’s own Palm Beach mansion, the money man allegedly abused hundreds of underage girls.)

The two were clearly chummy by the early Clinton Foundation years, as attested to by a 2002 photo of Epstein and Clinton in Brunei that appeared in Vicky Ward’s 2003 profile of the financier. In a 2002 piece for New York magazine about the Africa trip, Clinton praised Epstein as a “highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist.”

Not only were Epstein and Clinton far more connected in 2002 than his statement indicated, they were palling around in the 1990s as well.

Documents in the Clinton Library, however, attest to much earlier links between Maxwell, Epstein, and the Clinton White House.

In late September of 1993, Bill and Hillary Clinton hosted a reception for supporters who had contributed to recent White House renovations. The nearly $400,000 overhaul—which included new gold draperies and a 13-color woven rug for the Oval Office—was funded entirely by donations to the White House Historical Association, a private organization that helps preserve and promote the White House as a historical monument…

…Guests for the event, according to the invitation list, included the journalist and philanthropist Barbara Goldsmith, heiress Jane Engelhard, political consultant Cynthia Friedman, and “Mr Jeffrey Epstein and Ms. Ghislaine Maxwell.” Epstein and Maxwell do not appear on the ‘regret list,’ and there is a letter ‘A’ next to both of their names, indicating they planned to attend. A press release from the event, put out by Hillary Clinton’s office, lists Epstein as a White House Historical Association donor.

Clinton’s relationship with Epstein was not just in passing. It wasn’t a conversation at a party. It was extensive. The facts directly contradict what Clinton told the media just a few weeks ago. Yet, not a single media outlet has bothered to question him or his wife on the discrepancies. Until this Daily Beast report, we hadn’t even got any investigative reporting into it. Instead we got full throated parroting of his narrative. As I’ve said before, it’s good to be a Democrat.

All of these earlier contacts would lead us to the 2010’s where Clinton would be a guest at least 26 times on Epstein’s plane. As I noted earlier, on those manifests were names of underage girls who would later be revealed as victims of Epstein. Are we to believe Bill Clinton just didn’t notice them? Further, Bill Clinton has a ton of money. Why would he need Jeffrey Epstein to fly him around? Even more disturbing, one victim actually pinpoints Clinton as being on Epstein’s island where some of the worst abuse took place.

The Daily Beast has, to their credit, gathered some new evidence to show that Clinton is being dishonest here. Will the media run with it and demand answers or will they sweep this back under the rug? My money is on the latter.

City of Tega Cay, SC Removes Police Officers Monument After Complaints About Biblical References

Tega Cay, SC police officers monument. Screen grab via WCNC.

In yet another example in this country of political correctness run amok, the city of Tega Cay, SC has decided to remove a police officers monument due to complaints from some community members about its references to the Lord and Biblical scripture.

WCNC Charlotte reports:

The city originally decided to remove the word “Lord” after backlash from the community. Then, social media was buzzing with others who disagree with the city’s action.

The monument was located at the fallen officers memorial outside the police department. A police spokesman said they started getting complaints, so city leaders had a meeting and decided to remove the references.

The word “Lord” appeared three times in the monument before it was removed. However, removing the word has also caused backlash.

In a statement released Tuesday, city officials say they received comments both locally and nationally in response to the monument.

“We attempted to find a compromise but failed as our community has further divided. In an attempt to find a resolution, we have upset parties on both sides of this issue and for that we are truly sorry,” the statement reads.

Here’s the statement the city released to media outlets who inquired about the controversy:

The City of Tega Cay and our Police Department understand that not everyone agrees with the religious references that were on the monument located in the Fallen Officers Memorial at our Police Station. We also understand that just as many people are not in agreement that we have removed those references. There was never any intent to hold any group in higher regard than another. This monument was modeled after other monuments that appear across the country at various levels of government honoring law enforcement officers, military veterans and others whose duty is to protect and serve. Be that as it may, after seeking legal advice on the matter and after discussing it at length with City Council, we have made the decision to remove those references. We are public servants and want to make certain that all members of the public, regardless of what their religious beliefs may or may not be, understand that we are here to serve everyone. They will be welcomed into our facilities, whether it be the Police Station or City Hall, they will be treated fairly and with the respect they are owed by us. As the two sides of this issue continue to debate their stance we hope they will do so civilly and respectfully.

Watch the news report WCNC did a few days ago before the monument was taken down to see what it looked like:

Here are some close-up shots of how it looked when they tried to take the Lord’s name off of it:

First Liberty Institute general counsel Hiram Sasser told Fox News the removal was “utter nonsense”:

“We won the case at the Supreme Court just last month — The American Legion v. American Humanist Association,” Sasser told Fox News, referencing the 7-2 decision that allowed the Bladensburg Peace Cross war memorial to stand on public land.

“The country is now free from the memorial scrubbers,” Sasser noted.

I suspect for Tega (which is right across the NC/SC border from Charlotte) that the issue is not legal concerns but instead community harmony and trying to please everyone. What probably happened here is maybe a handful of people complained about the Biblical references, and the city took step of removing the Lord’s name, thinking that would be enough. It sounds like it wasn’t enough for that handful of people, so the city decided to take it down because they didn’t want to deal with it.

In the end, they should have left it up. Because not only is it harmless, but this is South Carolina after all, which – next to Texas, Alabama, and Mississippi – still maintains a strong Christian base, even among Democrats. If a few people want to complain, so be it. You cannot and will not ever be able to please everyone.

Yesterday, the Democrats Lost and Putin Won.

Mueller and the Democrats weren’t the only losers yesterday. Like most on our team, I couldn’t help but have a little (OK…a LOT) of schadenfreude as I watched the entirety of the Mueller testimony. Far from being the steely eyed, iron jawed lawman of integrity portrayed by the left, he appeared to be a doddering old fool, not up to speed on his own work product, evasive and self righteous. At times I almost felt sorry for him.

Then I remembered that he was the titular head of an almost 3 year “investigation” that not only appears to have been started based on multiple lies made to a FISA Judge, but was also a last ditch attempt attempt by long time bureaucrats to unseat a duly elected President. So yesterday, the good guys won one, right?

Not so fast. The Department of Justice announced today that it is restarting the execution of Federal Death Row Convicts. Why do I bring that up here? It’s about confidence in our justice system…of which I have about zero right now. How can we have faith enough in the system to put a man to death, when we have the purported class of the league, the FBI, putting false information in front of FISA Judges?

I did 10 years as a Sheriff’s Deputy. Although we had our issues with the Feds, we also looked at the FBI as sort of the High Priesthood of Law Enforcement, the Gold Standard of process and procedure, not to mention the best crime lab in the World. Their reputation has now been well and truly sullied. The only way to even begin the process of getting it back, is by Attorney General Barr ensuring some heads roll—and I mean doing time…hard time.

They aren’t the biggest losers in all of this. The American People and our confidence in the integrity of our election system is. Yeah. The Russians interfered in our election, but nowhere near to the degree and effect that the leftists claim. Director Mueller was unable (or unwilling) to cite a single instance where votes were cast as a result of the Russian Troll Farm products or as a result of leaked e-mails by the criminal crone from Chappaqua. Not one.

As I’ve noted elsewhere however, the Russians won big time, with help from their like thinking fellow travelers, the press and the Democrat party. They never had any intention of helping one candidate over another. If they did, it would have been Clinton, for reasons I’ve stated previously. Their objective was to sow chaos and engender uncertainty. Well, they did that and to a fair thee well. This lightly funded operation, likely overseen by some GRU Lieutenant Colonel, has exceeded all expectations. For a few hundred thousand bucks, this guy has managed on a shoestring to sap energy of the Trump Administration for almost 3 years while destroying our confidence in our elections. Did the good guys win yesterday? Yep. But until we bring the conspirators to justice, it’s a pyrrhic victory at best. The real winners? Putin and a newly promoted General in the GRU. Thanks Democrats.

Larry Elder: Democrats Demand “Civility”, but They Have a Looong History of Not Practicing What They Preach

When it comes to excoriating Democrats over their double standards and hypocrisy, few people can do it as well as author, columnist, and radio talk show host Larry Elder. He has been called every name in the book by Democrats, especially black Democrats who view him as a sell-out to his race because he refuses to toe the liberal line:

In a recent column, Elder talks about the left’s latest outrage, which centers around Trump’s controversial tweets from a few weeks ago on the so-called Squad of Democratic freshman Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), Rashida Tlaib (MI), and Ayanna Pressley (MA).

In the piece, Elder talks about how Democratic demands for civility ring hollow, especially considering their long history of incivility and mean-spiritedness towards those on the other side of the aisle who happen to disagree with them. He includes a lengthy list of quotes, some of which you can read below:

“I believe (George H.W. Bush) is a racist for many, many reasons. … (He’s) a mean-spirited man who has no care or concern about what happens to the African American community. … I truly believe that.” — Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., 1992.

“It’s not ‘spic’ or ‘n—–‘ anymore. (Republicans) say, ‘Let’s cut taxes.’” — Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., 1994.

The new Republican-controlled House is like “the Duma and the Reichstag,” (referring to the legislature set up by Czar Nicholas II of Russia and the parliament of the German Weimar Republic that brought Hitler to power). — Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., 1995.

[…]

The GOP has a “white boy attitude, (which means) ‘I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind.’ They don’t see it or think about it. It’s a culture.” — Donna Brazile, Al Gore’s presidential campaign manager, 1999.

“The Republicans bring out Colin Powell and J.C. Watts because they have no program, no policy. … They’d rather take pictures with black children than feed them.” — Brazile, 2000.

[…]

“George (W.) Bush is our Bull Connor.” — Rep. Rangel, referring to the Birmingham, Alabama, Democrat segregationist superintendent of public safety who sicced dogs and turned firehouses on civil rights workers, 2005.

“Every day, (those in George W. Bush’s administration) unleash squadrons of digital brownshirts to harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the President.” — Al Gore, 2005.

[…]

George W. Bush “let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black.” — Senate candidate Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., 2006.

There are many recent examples of them not practicing what they preach on civility, but Elder’s point was that it dates back a long time. He knows like most of us know that when Democrats demand civility (and “bipartisanship”), what they’re really asking for is for conservatives to shut up while liberals walk all over them and shove their agenda through.

It’s red meat, but still worth reading. Click here to view more of the quotes Elder referenced.
