AOC Tries to Maker Her Dismal Poll Numbers Out to Be An Illusion of Trump’s

Despite the media’s fawning over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she falls more into the “infamy” column than the “fame” column. Between killing jobs for New Yorkers and failing to denounce a terrorist who used language she uses as justification for his attack, AOC isn’t exactly a voter’s favorite choice.

This fact was revealed by an Axios poll that showed the New York democratic socialist was recognized by 74 percent of voters in the poll, but those voters only had a 22 percent favorable view of her.

It’s even worse for Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was recognized by 53 percent of the voters; but came in at a dismal 9% approval. As it turns out, taking a soft view of the people who murdered thousands of innocents in a terrorist attack isn’t good for favorability.

As the media continues to rage on about Trump’s “racist tweets,” Trump took to Twitter to defend himself and pointed out that the Democrat’s condemnation of his remarks via a resolution is “con game.” He said that he truly believes the “congresswomen” hate the United States and then pointed out that they aren’t very popular, using the Axios numbers as a guide.

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap,” tweeted Trump. “This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!”

As I covered on Monday, while Trump’s tweets about the Congresswomen had their issues, they weren’t at all racist. Regardless, the media narrative is that it is and that’s what the Democrats are running with.

But I digress.

AOC decided to put up a defense of herself by calling Trump, and by extension the poll, a complete fabrication by pointing at Trump and comparing him to an authoritarian who uses “mass distortion” to push a narrative.

“Authoritarians rely on mass distortion of reality to further concentrate their power, and they will take advantage of anyone and anything to meet that end,” tweeted AOC.

That’s rich coming from an authoritarian who relies on mass distortions of reality to further concentrate her power.

This is the same AOC that told us that the world would fall into chaos in 12 years if we didn’t pass her dictator-esque legislation that would have lead the United States down into a socialist hell from which it would take decades to recover, if it ever did. This is also the same woman who posed in front of an empty parking lot in order to take pictures of herself looking sad in order to convince us that she was looking at migrant children being mistreated.

Distorting reality is what AOC does best. She even cooks up realities about herself through cringe-worthy videos where she’s a hero to future generations, and releases weird propaganda looking illustrations that make her look deep.

The truth is, AOC and her “#squad” are about as liked by voters as Yoko Ono is to Beatles fans. She’s a habitual liar, apologetically ridiculous, and comes off more as a spoiled child than a professional lawmaker.

This isn’t Trump’s illusion, this is a very real Ocasio-Cortez creation.

Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack

Westlake Legal Group tlaib-omar-aoc-pressley-620x317 Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack Liberal Elitism Front Page Stories Front Page freshman squad Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Ayanna Pressley AOC antifa Abuse of Power

The party that loves to cast blame and lecture about promoting violence has a real problem on its hands now.

Antifa has made itself a rather despicable group in just the past month alone, to say nothing of the years spent being an unhinged group of aggressive dolts. Any proper thinking person has seen this group for what it is — a gang of radicals who try to justify their violence and vandalism in the name of correcting supposed social ills.

However this outfit has been able to flourish in the country because as it employs fascistic behavior it couches itself as battling fascism, and the media has been providing cover. The lack of objective reporting, and just as often the supportive commentary from the press, has seen this organization of thugs prosper, when they should have been exposed and hectored away.

Now it appears the Democrat party has embraced Antifa as well. Last week we all saw the story of the Antifa member who was armed and throwing firebombs at an ICE facility in Tacoma. The muted response to this in the press is revealing; their inability to report on the story tells the story. Think of another instance when guns and terrorist acts would NOT have the media frothing about everything from our violent political culture, to gun control. But in the Tacoma case, the press is largely quiet, and some have even called the attacker a “martyr”.

This is the case with the Democrats as well. We have been shown video of Ayanna Pressley, fresh off of her appearance at the hilariously inept anti-Trump Press conference yesterday. (This would be where Pressley called for the Democrats to not take the bait from the President, and the AOC, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib each stepped up and promptly took his bait in their outlandish comments.) Pressly was approached by a member of The Rebel News team, and asked to comment on the Antifa firebombing.

So much is in play here. First off, the complaint about being in her personal space is a rather ironic bit off complaining. Think the fiasco we witnessed during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings when Senate members were routinely hounded, and even chased into elevators by activists, who were roundly praised for their actions. Do something of a similar confrontational manner with a Democrat member, however, and there is a personal space violation.

But the point here in this video display is the abject refusal by Pressly to respond. She steadfastly refuses to condemn the violent actions. Consider the implication here. There is an individual from an established violent group, who intended to storm a government facility with weapons and violent intent, and here is a Democrat member of Congress refusing to condemn these actions. A sitting member of Congress refusing to condemn an attempted act of terrorism on a government facility is astounding to consider, let alone to witness.

Think of how often in the past two years we have seen Democrats coming forward to declare words which are supposedly promoting violence. Everything from innocuous comments to quoting Democrats verbatim are said to be violent rhetoric. What then do we say when a congresswoman refuses to step away from a violent attack? What is it called when they refuse to disavow a violent organization, and cannot see themselves to condemn an armed firebomb attack?

There is no chance either to attempt deflecting this, by saying she was not condoning it, and therefore you cannot say she supports it. The stock in trade with the Democrats and the media has long been that whenever a distaff member of the GOP says something controversial then party leaders are called on to condemn the words, or then it is declared that it is the platform of the entire party.

That means, according to their own established rules, that a Democrat in Congress refusing to condemn an act of violence they have effectively supported it. We are not even discussing controversial words here; this is an established act of terrorism on a government building.

And the Democrats are in support. This means that by extension Antifa is theirs to claim as well, and it is all thanks to the freshman class, The Squad that the party has been placing in front as the emblem of their party. This is all going so very wrong for the people who claim to have been swept into power during the past election.

Fraudster Shaun King Calls Antifa Firebomber a “Martyr” While Encouraging More Violence

This seems fine.

Shaun King, noted white guy, media personality, and self-styled #blacklivesmatter leader, praised the man who tried to firebomb an ICE facility as a “martyr.”

He deleted the tweets, but no worries, I’ve got the contents.

Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

His hero was John Brown -the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859.

This is what our country has come to. pic.twitter.com/y3STkjsp6o

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

I’m not sure what the facility being “for profit” matters. But hey, it’s a good buzz-phrase.

The people in the facility have been detained by ICE because they have lawful deportation orders against them. Comparing any aspect of this nut job, who was incited by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts, to John Brown is just ludicrous.

No one is being enslaved here and just like Holocaust comparisons, it’s incredibly insensitive and gross to make such comparisons. These are people who purposely chose to break the law and even then, most of them had the opportunity to choose self-deportation instead of remaining in custody.

King goes on to laud the domestic terrorist as a hero who’s now “arm in arm with John Brown,” because this kind of praising of nonsensical violence totally isn’t dangerous.

We are told that this is the final letter of Willem Van Spronsen – who was shot and killed by law enforcement as he attempted an attack on a for-profit refugee detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

It’s a beautiful, painful, devastating letter.

He wasn’t crazy -inaction is. pic.twitter.com/YMO1vhXCHn

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

So not acting is crazy? Then why is King not acting, instead choosing to hide behind Twitter? Is he a coward? Does he not really oppose Nazis? Inquiring minds and all that.

This is where Willem was murdered this weekend.

His actions will be called terrorism and people will call him crazy, but neither are true. His mind was very clear.

He is now “arm in arm with John Brown.”

These camps must be shut down. pic.twitter.com/wzQPEYC2j9

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

His actions are being called terrorism because they were. Firebombing a government facility to push a political narrative is the definition of terrorism.

But leave it to a man who’s such a fraudster that he’s been dubbed “Talcolm X” to make ridiculous tweets like this, appropriating slavery in the process and basically begging for more people to get killed.

Will any of the outlets he works for condemn him? Nah, of course not. Will the media call him out? Of course not. He’s not a Republican after all.

Trump’s Main Competitor Launched a Major Platform Yesterday and Not a Soul Noticed

Westlake Legal Group Biden-620x378 Trump’s Main Competitor Launched a Major Platform Yesterday and Not a Soul Noticed Trump platform pelosi Obamacare Joe Biden healthcare Front Page Stories Featured Story elections 2020 Democrats

While we’re all parsing out Trump’s tweet storm, analyzing every word to death and raging into the wind on one side or other the rest of the world has just kept turning.

The path to 2020 is unfolding and with dozens of Democrat presidential candidates it is more important than ever for each one of them to be able to grab as much of the media spotlight as possible. However, at this point only one candidate is polling with numbers high enough to be considered any type of threat to Trump – Joe Biden.

There are a few vital subjects that every Democrat candidate must officially approach in order to reach their base -the border and illegal immigration, race, and healthcare.

When Obama first jammed Obamacare down America’s throat some of us who have lived under socialized medicine understood that the only thing it would guarantee is that politicians would forever be running on “fixing” the “fix” for healthcare. As a born Canadian, I can attest to that. I’ve never experienced on Canadian election in my 40-plus years in which a politician hasn’t run on fixing the broken medical system, because government doesn’t fix things.

So naturally Joe Biden’s stance on healthcare was set to be a major wind in his sails media-wise. After all, this is the man who served under the very president who brought us the “Affordable” Healthcare Act. It would be a delicate launch considering the failure of the policy. Biden needs to be able to carefully straddle the line between being proudly connected to it and admitting it didn’t really do what it promised.

On Monday Biden finally released his long-awaited healthcare platform…to deafening silence.

While Biden released the details of Obamacare 2.0, the rest of the world was raging at – or defending – Trump. Nary a soul noticed Biden’s soulless rehash of a nearly dead piece of legislation.

You can read about Biden’s plan here but it’s hardly worth the time. The bullet point wrap up is:

  • lower healthcare costs
  • expand insurance to the uninsured or underinsured
  • take on Big Pharma
  • improve healthcare quality
  • offer a public health exchange

Basically everything Obamacare was supposed to have done and didn’t.

It could have been worth at least a tiny boost in sycophant media circles…but then along came Trump. Suddenly, instead of talking about Joe Biden – the man who served as vice president to American’s first Black president – all they could talk about was Trump; and following that, the “Broad Squad” as they hogged the evening news cycle by stepping way out of their lane and into oncoming traffic.

Oh, to hear the conversations between Biden and Pelosi right now! Two of America’s most experienced politicians upstaged by a tweet-happy president and four freshman congresswomen.

It’s almost as if it were planned.

Trevor Noah: In Trump’s Head You Can’t Be a Person of Color and An American

Westlake Legal Group noah-620x340 Trevor Noah: In Trump’s Head You Can’t Be a Person of Color and An American tweets Trump trevor noah talk show Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Culture comedy

The fallout from Trump’s tweet storm on Monday is still rolling. Naturally the talk show circuit picked up the President’s comments and also naturally there was no nuance or even actual thoughtfulness involved.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah took his turn at taking swipes (some earned).

“I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that the president thought it was acceptable to say go back to where you came from, or the fact he said it to people who are already where they came from. You know, it’s almost like, in Trump’s head you can’t be a person of color and an American, which is strange because he of all people should know that you can be two things at the same yeah, I mean, he’s bald and has a full head of hair. It doesn’t make sense! But we accept it. Not surprisingly, not surprisingly, Mr. Mexicans are rapists doesn’t think he says anything bad.”

POTUS deserves to be ridiculed, but as usual the criticism is mostly based on fantasy rather than reality. Trump never said Mexicans are rapists (he said criminals are streaming over our open borders alongside good people) but the progressive media-types are stuck on stupid with that one.

“I mean, he’s bald and has a full head of hair.” – I guffawed at that one.

There’s no comedy in the middle of the road, so obviously entertainers like Noah have to come down hard on one side or the other. Would we expect anything less?

A Fox 10 Reporter Had Explicit Words for Her Bosses Who Want Her to Hide Her Right-Leaning Connections

Westlake Legal Group Capture-5 A Fox 10 Reporter Had Explicit Words for Her Bosses Who Want Her to Hide Her Right-Leaning Connections Social Media Politics PHOENIX parler New York Times Media Kari Lake John Hook Front Page Stories Fox 10 Featured Story Arizona Allow Media Exception

Fox 10’s Kari Lake out in Phoenix, Arizona, is an Emmy award winning journalist and isn’t scared to about what people might think of her connections to the right despite what her bosses may fear. Not only is she not afraid of having to answer for her account on Parler, she has some bombs to throw at her managers who are pushing her to hide her account.

As Lake was about to do a Facebook live with her co-host John Hook, when Hook informed Lake that the higher ups would like her to hide her Parler account because of its associations with the “far-right.”

“I think they just think it’s been branded as a far-right kind of place,” Hook said.

“Jesus,” said Lake, clearly annoyed.

“So they don’t want you tied in with anything like that, where you’re going to get blowback from the New Times or whoever it is,” continued Hook.

“F**k them. They’re 20-year-old dopes,” Lake asserted. “That’s a rag for selling marijuana ads”.

“I know,” Hook responded. “But then you’re in a position where they’ve gotta explain it or you’ve gotta explain it”.

“I’m reaching people,” Lake said.

To be clear, Parler is not a “far-right” social media network. Thousands on thousands have joined up with Parler over the last year due to Twitter’s clear preference for left-leaning accounts and its punishment of right-leaning accounts for so much as sneezing in the wrong direction.

It’s ridiculous that Lake should have to hide her Parler account out of fear that someone like the New York Times would see it and make she or the station answer for it, and while it’s fun to watch Lake drop “f-bombs” all over her timid managers, the real lede here shouldn’t be buried.

The entire reason that Lake was told to hide her Parler account in the first place is because of fears that the mainstream media would swoop in and label she or the station as alt-right sympathizers, showing the fear the mainstream media puts into people when it comes to expressing themselves, or even associated with certain people. The underlying words used by Hook show us some interesting things. Firstly that they fear the New York Times would actually feel the need to spotlight Lake’s association with the Parler platform, and that they would promote the idea that it is something that only far-right people associate with.

In truth, Lake had the right idea. It’s unclear if she is right or left leaning and, to be honest, it doesn’t matter. As she said, she’s reaching people. She’s willing to venture into places where people who think differently are and having conversations with them on level ground.

That, in my opinion, puts her above in a class of journalism above the New York Times.

Ted Cruz Confirms that He Is, In Fact, Beto O’Rourke’s Father

New York Times author Nate Cohn really liked Robert “Beto” O’Rourke. In fact, Cohn liked O’Rourke so much that he often compared him to one of cinema’s greatest and well known protagonists of all time, Luke Skywalker of the Star Wars series.

According to Cohn, O’Rourke was Luke, and the evil Darth Vader was Ted Cruz and both were fighting over the galactic senate…in Texas.

“For about a year now, I’ve been comparing Beto to Luke Skywalker,” tweeted Cohn. “He’s the famous hero, for Democrats, of an epic of good versus evil, against one of the greatest villians of all time. Darth Vader, Ted Cruz; Star Wars in a Galaxy far away; Texas Senate in the Trump midterm.”

Michael Li, Texas transplant and NYU redistricting expert, came to a realization. If O’Rourke is Luke, then that makes Cruz O’Rourke’s dad.

“Wait, Ted Cruz is Beto’s father??!” responded Li.

Cruz saw the tweet and wanted to clear the air.

The answer is “yes.”

Love him or hate him, Cruz is one of the funniest guys in congress and the internet showed its appreciation for it.

Cruz is a good natured dude, and this is definitely a good natured burn on O’Rourke, who Cruz defeated in the midterm elections despite all the Democrat’s horses and all the Democrat’s gender fluid persons of political affiliation coming together to try to push Cruz out of his Senate seat. It was a tough fight, but in the end, Cruz ended up being O’Rourke’s daddy.

The RedState Film Review: CRAWL

Westlake Legal Group Crawl-620x287 The RedState Film Review: CRAWL Popular Culture Movies movie review Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Florida Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment Allow Media Exception Alligators

Screenshot and poster image from Paramount Studios

Hurricanes, alligators, and the human condition converge on a Florida locale.

In the midst of the summer blockbuster season, which is choked with massive tentpole blockbusters, some studios hope for a counter-programming opportunity and try to tempt audiences with some differing options. Paramount has attempted to earn some extra cash by releasing the thriller “Crawl” this weekend between a couple of major releases.

A hybrid of a disaster film and a creature horror feature, the plot revolves around a hurricane setting its sights on the west coast of Florida, and as if a category-5 tempest was not perilous enough some residents who become trapped in the storm zone find their home beset by a swarm of vicious alligators. Tension arrives with dual threats.

Directed by horror vet Alexander Aja and produced by Sam Raimi this is a low budget affair (shot for under $20 million) that has plenty of logical and geographical shortcomings, but it still manages to be a compelling ride that delivers its share of thrills and fun. This is not a film to study ardently, but one to allow to perform for you.

The story surrounds around Haley, a college student who is on the University of Florida swim team — home of the Florida Gators! With the storm approaching she drives out to look for her father (Barry Pepper, the closest to a star in this), who has not responded to repeated calls. She ventures to their childhood home to discover him wounded and trapped deep in the crawlspace (ahem) of the basement (double ahem.) He is wounded by a leg bite he received from a large alligator, one of a number occupying their space.

As the storm rolls in the basement begins flooding and the numerous attempts at getting help, and getting out, comprise the content. The budget restrictions are evident — a slim cast, a mostly solitary interior location — but Aja does a respectable job in delivering a sufficient amount of tension and maintaining interest. He makes the limits of the setting a claustrophobic element, a challenge for the besieged characters.

As a Florida resident, I needed to suspend much of my local knowledge. One major issue is that the state rests at sea level and thus any significant digging gets you into the water table. This means basements are non-existent on the peninsula. This became a curiosity, as the first act takes place primarily in the “basement” of the home. But it is the type of ride that you need to bypass these type of elements.

“Crawl” offers up enough of a diversion from the formulaic studio offerings. If you are primed for a thriller as an alternative you can be entertained. This kind of movie does not require heavy cerebral lifting, so you can turn off the mental analysis and delve into the popcorn. If you manage that there is some fun to be had in this genre release.

Antifa ‘Martyr’s’ Manifesto Is Nonsensical Garbage That Echoes AOC’s Own Policy Ideas

Westlake Legal Group AOCAPphoto-620x317 Antifa ‘Martyr’s’ Manifesto Is Nonsensical Garbage That Echoes AOC’s Own Policy Ideas Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story AOC antifa

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., makes an objection to a Republican argument as the House Oversight and Reform Committee considers whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents related to the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, June 12, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Citing turn-of-the-century anarcho-communist writer Emma Goldman (herself a student of a philosophy that promoted change through violence and implicated in violent crimes with her lover Alexander Berkman), the Antifa member who tried to firebomb an ICE facility in Washington State left a manifesto behind. And it’s absurd gobbledygook. But Goldman wasn’t his only muse.

The details of his crime are as follows:

At approximately 4 a.m. on Saturday morning, just a few hours after a peaceful protest had concluded, Tacoma Police Department responded to a call of an attack at Tacoma Northwest Detention Center. The detention center houses more than 1,500 detainees who are awaiting deportment, according to the Los Angeles Times. Tacoma Police arrived to find a man throwing incendiary devices at the facility. He was also armed with a rifle. Van Spronsen had managed to ignite a vehicle and was attempting to also detonate a large propane tank. Police believe he was wanted to additionally set buildings on fire. The police responded to the man’s attacks with gunfire, killing him.

And his inspiration, if we are to believe his last ramblings, are the whiny socialists of years past but also well known players still with us today.

n a three-page document posted on Seattle TV station KIRO’s website, Willem Van Spronsen cited popular left-wing historian Howard Zinn, said that “i am antifa,” criticized the Electoral College and accused the U.S. of running “concentration camps” on the border.

Willem Van Spronsen, 69, declares early on in his manifesto that “evil says concentration camps for folks deemed lesser are necessary. the handmaid of evil says the concentration camps should be more humane,” using a term usually reserved for Nazi Germany’s death camps, but introduced in the border-security debate last month by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

He also mocked people criticizing Ms. Ocasio-Cortez for intellectual sloppiness, referring to “these days of highly profitable detention/concentration camps and a battle over the semantics.”

Amidst the garbage rantings of an insane person’s last words, there was once sentence that was particularly disturbing (emphasis mine):

This is my clear opportunity to try to make a difference, I’d be an ingrate to be waiting for a more obvious invitation.

Ocasio-Cortez has refused to condemn the attacker’s behavior, and hard-left progressives are praising his bravery. It’s little wonder he felt “invited” to try to destroy a facility and potentially murder people in the process.

It’s an easy thing to say “I don’t condone resorting to violence” but apparently it’s too difficult to say for people like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This means that she condones violence…at least according to her own rules.

On Monday, the democratic socialist sweetheart of the Democratic party decided that she would lay down ground rules for Republicans about their stances should they not condemn President Donald Trump for his “racist” tweet that said that the congresswomen who rag on America constantly should go back to their countries of origin and fix the problems there.

According to AOC, if they don’t condemn then they condone. It’s a typical tactic of the left to claim that silence is violence, and true to form, AOC invoked the tried and true method of nailing intent to inaction.

“Until Republican officials denounce yesterday’s explicitly racist statements (which should be easy!), we sadly have no choice but to assume they condone it,” tweeted AOC. “It is extremely disturbing that the *entire* GOP caucus is silent. Is this their agenda?”

It’s not a particularly good route to take in political debate, though it’s not without it’s too-high success rate. What Ocasio-Cortez is doing is, without your permission, putting you into a camp of people opposed to the goodness of not being racist.

As I wrote on Monday, Trump’s tweet had it’s issues but one thing it wasn’t was racist. You can easily glean what Trump was trying to say in the tweet, which was that the girls could go back to the countries their families came from and experience what it truly is to deal with the problems they claim America has then come back here and tell everyone what to do. It had nothing to do with race, but attitude.

Regardless, the running narrative is that the tweets were about race and that the congresswomen should be kicked out of the country, and if the GOP won’t denounce Trump’s tweets then they also agree with the racism of Trump and are racist too.

Fine. Then let’s play that game.

As Streiff covered Monday, Ocasio-Cortez was asked point blank if she condemned the recent firebomb attack on an ICE facility. She wouldn’t give an answer. As the reporter said, it’s easy to do so, but still, AOC would not say a word.

By Ocasio-Cortez’s own rules, her silence speaks to her position. She condones the firebombing attacks according to her silence.

If she does condemn the attacks, then she’s more than welcome to just say so. She should condemn the attacks, denounce Antifa, and make it clear that any violence towards others is wrong. It’s not hard.

The same could be said of Rep. Ilhan Omar who refused to condemn Al-Qaeda on multiple occasions. I guess she condones the terrorist group that carried out 9/11?

Yet, she’s not doing that. She’s remaining silent and therefore she condones terrorism.

That’s not me saying that. That’s AOC.
