Mainstream Media Figures Shamefully Dog Pile Onto Dana Loesch in Wake of Mass Shootings

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-2-620x317 Mainstream Media Figures Shamefully Dog Pile Onto Dana Loesch in Wake of Mass Shootings twitter Texas Politics Ohio MSNBC Mika Brzezinski Media mass shooting Joe Scarborough Illinois Guns gun control Front Page Stories Featured Story El Paso democrats dayton Dana Loesch CNN Chicago Allow Media Exception

Anytime a shooting that the media wants to pay attention to occurs — Chicago and Dayton are quickly being forgotten about — many people on the left immediately log onto Twitter and head straight for Dana Loesch.

Dana Loesch is arguably the most famous gun rights advocate in America. As such, everyone from your average keyboard warrior to mainstream media figures will begin attacking Loesch for no better reason than being a woman who people can recognize in relation to guns.

Naturally, after the El Paso shooting occurred, Loesch became the focal point of a lot of people’s hatred and anger.

So on, and so on, and so on. By now, this “blood on your hands” line from the left is uttered about as much as the word “white supremacist” is when they talk about President Donald Trump. “Gun lady evil” could be a meme right up there with “orange man bad.”

The problem is that it’s not just your typical blue checkmark and internet rando that comes after Loesch. The mainstream media seem to love putting the blame on people like Loesch too. After El Paso, the mainstream media decided to jump on Dana Loesch by trying out this brand new strategy that we’ve never seen before; taking something she had said completely out of context.

It started when CNN’s Joan Walsh decided to make a snide comment about Loesch’s connection with beet juice.

Walsh was called out for trying to attack Loesch in the midst of the tragedy by confusing beet juice with blood, and Walsh responded with more insults. Loesch simply responded that she has nothing on her hands.

Another blue checkmark told Loesch to look more closely, insinuating Loesch really was to blame for what happened. When Loesch called out the fact that they were directing hate toward her that could inevitably lead to violence from those angered by Loesch’s supposed part in the shootings, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough decided to take a swipe at Loesch by making himself and his wife Mika Brzezinski sound like a victim of her rhetoric.

Scarborough is purposefully misrepresenting Loesch’s “your time is running out” quote by not even acknowledging what Loesch was talking about, or the context with which she said it. Loesch called him out on this.

Then Brzezinski joined in the fray, making it sound as if Loesch was the one who picked the fight in the first place.

Brzezinski had a flute to play, however, and kept going after Loesch while trying to pretend like it was Loesch on the attack. The MSNBC co-host kept telling Loesch to leave her alone while continuously tweeting insults at her. Brzezinski even went so far as to claim she picked the fight with Scarborough.

There’s plenty more to choose from. Visit Loesch’s page. She posts and retweets the hate thrown at her in Breitbartian fashion.

Loesch has been dealing with this nonsense for ages. The “blood on your hands” line has been repeated so much to her, especially lately, that it’s taken on the same feel as a zombified sounding cult chant. She’s obviously not to blame for the shooting, but she’s a lightning rod for people looking for someone to take their anger out on.

The problem is that the media leads this charge against her and for a solid reason. Loesch has proven them wrong time after time and is one of the few people who will actually walk into their territory to actually fight for gun rights in the face of a hostile crowd. If they truly want to push their agenda, one of the first steps is bringing down Loesch.

Of course, that’s easier said than done, especially when it’s done by people who are trying to self-victimize while on the attack like Scarborough and Brzezinski.

But whether they succeed or not — heavy emphasis on “not” — what they are doing is directing an inordinate amount of hate toward a woman who has only ever promoted the idea of gun safety and education while fiercely defending law-abiding gun owners right to have a firearm. Loesch has already had to move before due to the threats that have come her way, and here the mainstream media is making the problem worse.

But what else is new for them?

Liberal Actress Learns the Hard Way That the Word “Racism” Means Whatever Her Party Wants It to Mean

Most conservatives have learned from past experiences that anytime you criticize a black Democrat, you are automatically going to be accused of racism. No matter how legitimate the criticism is. This started way before the presidency of Barack Obama, happened with increasing frequency during the Obama years, and continues to happen to this very day.

Liberal “Grey’s Anatomy” actress Ellen Pompeo, who supported Hillary Clinton‘s candidacy in 2016, learned this lesson the hard way after last week’s Democratic debates. She made the mistake of characterizing Sen. Kamala Harris’s debate performance as “overconfident” – and was promptly accused of, you guessed it, racism.

Here’s what Pompeo wrote that sparked the backlash:

Concern trolls read her the riot act for daring to criticize the California Senator:

Pompeo pushed back against the accusation she was engaging in racism in a series of tweets, but in the end it didn’t matter. Social media being what it is, the online Resistance MobWestlake Legal Group 2122 Liberal Actress Learns the Hard Way That the Word “Racism” Means Whatever Her Party Wants It to Mean Social Media racism Race Politics North Carolina Media kamala harris Hollywood Grey's Anatomy Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment Ellen Pompeo elections democrats Culture California Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020   had declared Pompeo a racist and that was the end of it.

Something Pompeo’s detractors probably don’t know about her is that it would be kinda hard for the actress to harbor any racist tendencies. Her husband Chris Ivery is black. They have three children together:

To be sure, that’s not a “get out of jail free” card anymore to the left, especially when you consider how the Congressional Black Caucus subtly accused Latina Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) of racism because her Justice Democrats group is targeting several black Democratic lawmakers in the 2020 primaries. This came just days after Ocasio-Cortez played the “Woman of Color” card on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for daring to criticize The Squad.

Republicans were racists because they opposed Obamacare. Those who support President Trump are, by default, called “racists.” Nancy Pelosi was a racist because she had the audacity to scold The Squad. Ocasio-Cortez was a racist because she opposes certain Congressional Black Caucus members. Pompeo is racist because she thought Sen. Harris should have done things differently at the last debate.

As Trump and many others have said so many times before, Democrats have made it so the word “racism’ has no meaning anymore outside of what they declare it to mean at any given moment. It’s sad, shameful, and unfortunately they are aided and abetted by a complicit mainstream media.

Kamala Harris’s Arrest Reports Are Quietly Disappearing From California’s DOC Website

As America has erupted over the three mass shootings that happened over the course of the weekend — yeah, there was a third in Chicago, but the media doesn’t want to talk about that one for some reason — the California Department of Corrections has been busy making Sen. Kamala Harris’s arrest reports during her time as California’s Attorney General hard to find.

According to Charles Lehman at the Washington Free Beacon, the California DOC made arrests in California a matter of public record that is easy to access via the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation site. Now, a lot of it is suddenly gone:

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 websiteA 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.

This is an interesting turn of events given the fact that, during last week’s 2020 Democrat debate, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard made Sen. Kamala Harris’s arrests a stain on Harris with unreasonable prison sentences for non-violent drug offenders, extending prison sentences to utilize prisoners for cheap labor, and withholding evidence that would have cleared a death row inmate.

Harris often uses her time as California’s AG as a point of pride but kept a lot of what she did under wraps. Gabbard drew back the curtain, but now California appears to be trying to put the curtain back and then put the whole thing behind a brick wall.

It may be too late, as Gabbard opened the flood gates. As the Free Beacon reported, it’s now known that Harris put over 120,000 minorities in prison during her stint as AG. She also put away 1,500 Californians away from marijuana use.

This entire thing raises some questions.

Is the state of California attempting to protect Harris by hiding the truth from the public? Is this being done at the behest of the DNC, or at least under the knowledge of the DNC? Is Harris’s campaign behind this at all?

While I’m not sure if there are any legal violations, it’s still a violation of the public’s trust. Hiding Harris’s mistakes is a shady move, especially at a time when investigations into her past as California’s “top cop” are ongoing thanks to Gabbard’s blistering move during the debates and Harris’s subsequent inability to defend herself.

If Anyone Is Spreading White Supremacy, It’s the Media, Not Trump

I knew the moment that I heard about the El Paso shooter’s manifesto on Saturday that this would shooting would become about President Donald Trump’s supposed racism. In fact, at the time of this writing, #WhiteSupremacistInChief is trending on Twitter.

But despite continuous claims and talking points circling around Trump’s hatred of minorities, no one can ever point to something that Trump said that was actually racist. When they do mention something that he said, they can never quote him verbatim, just one or two words.

“He called immigrants animals,” they tell me along with other famous claims like calling immigrants “rapists” and “criminals.”

Did Trump say those things? Yes, but the context is so out of sync with the stories that are pushed about him. Let’s take the “animals” comment for instance. This line popped up during a moment when Trump was speaking about the gang MS-13. That gang originates in central America and runs a national crime syndicate that includes drugs and sex trafficking. Their motto is “rape, control, kill.”

To call them “animals” is actually putting it lightly.

Yet, everyone from the New York Times to the Washington Post was swearing up and down that they had caught Trump red-handed with racism. Instead of agreeing with Trump that MS-13 was a horrific presence in America that needed to be dealt with, they went after Trump for “racism.” To be clear, the media was running defense for MS-13 — the gang who had just brutally murdered a man in an unspeakable fashion — in order to own Trump.

That line still persists among the left from the politicians to the media. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke mentioned the “animals” line during his press tour on the El Paso shooting, where he’s decided to use the horrific deaths of innocents as a way to boost approval points by attacking Trump.

Even when it came to the “rapists” and “criminals” line that you see consistently quoted by leftists politicians and media, Trump was clearly referring to the illegal immigrants trying to sneak across the border who commit these crimes. Here’s the full context:

When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically.

The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.

Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people.

Trump’s words were, at best, inartful in not making sure it’s understood more that not every person trying to come across the border is a horrible person. He even makes mention that he assumes there are some good people in that crowd. However, he’s not wrong. Some heinous things happen at the border and they bring it here. Brandon Darby of Breitbart was on the ground covering what happens at the border, and to Trump’s credit, rape is very common.

Yet, the media didn’t focus on this. They just focused on keywords within Trump’s dialogue about the border.

A pattern is already starting to develop here. Trump says things, the media picks out a singular word or phrase, then proceeds to paint him as a new Hitler by throwing away all context. Be it about the border or Baltimore, Trump has to be seen as a white supremacist, even if he is correct about the state of something and acknowledging it would help people in the middle of it.

The sick part is that with this in mind, it’s clearly not Trump pushing white supremacy. It’s the media.

The media is consistently generating narratives that shouldn’t even exist and only divide people to extremes. It shouldn’t be a radical thing to acknowledge that the border crisis is out of control or that Baltimore is living in rats and filth. It shouldn’t be controversial to say shut down travel from countries that are known hotbeds of terrorism as we witness death and rape in Europe skyrocket as they welcome people from those countries in.

The media narrative, however, is that Trump is a racist white supremacist and all of his supporters are white supremacists as well. Their modus operandi is to completely ignore or deny that any problems exist until they become politically expedient, like the photo of the dead child and father that finally got the left to admit that there was a border crisis. They don’t want to talk about the shooting that just happened in Democrat-controlled Chicago or talk about the Dayton shooter who was a socialist Antifa supporter. They don’t want to accurately tell you what’s happening about any given issue that involves someone of a race other than white.

Trump brings up a legitimate problem, he’s called a racist, the media denies any problems exist while people see the problem first hand, and people find themselves becoming bitter and angry. Those with issues to begin with become vindictive and we get shootings like Christchurch and El Paso.

I want to be very clear that I’m not making excuses for these shooters who are pure scum and deserve to die forgotten by the world they were trying to grab the attention of. Nor am I pardoning racism, which is one of the lowest forms of hatred.

That said, the media keeps greasing the wheels for white supremacists to have all the attention and platform they want. Meanwhile, Trump is actually looking issues surrounding minority groups in the face and moving to act. As Greg Gutfeld tweeted the other day, if he is a racist, he sucks at it, given his penchant for helping minorities in trouble.

In fact, would a white supremacist condemn white supremacy like Trump did today?

The media, however, is continuously giving airtime to the subject white supremacists and creating them out of thin air whenever the opportunity arises, like with the Baltimore controversy. They’ve even put white supremacists like Richard Spencer on-air for commentary. That’s not Fox News doing that, that’s CNN.

If the media was honest and gave every Trump phrase in context with news stories that don’t hide the truth, the issue of white supremacy wouldn’t be the mammoth that it is, but a narrative must thrive and as such, the infection grows. White supremacy has the claws it does because the media keeps sharpening them, then blames Trump as he actually tries to solve the problem.

Pathetic.

Joe Biden Loses It, Offers Condolences to Wrong Locations After Mass Shootings

Westlake Legal Group bidendummy-620x388 Joe Biden Loses It, Offers Condolences to Wrong Locations After Mass Shootings senile Politics Old Ohio Misstatement Michigan Joe Biden Houston gaffe Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story El Paso double standards democrats dayton Aging 2020

Joe Biden’s biggest flaw in the 2020 race is the fact that he’s noticeably aging in front of voters’ eyes. For much of the campaign, he’s attempted to remain in hiding, only showing his face for the occasional teleprompter speech or the debates, which he’s forced to endure.

Following two tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, some 2020 Democrat candidates blamed Trump and racism to score political points despite the fact that the Dayton shooter was an avowed socialist and Sanders/Warren supporter. Some yelled about Fox News. One candidate even fund-raised off of it.

Joe Biden, on the other hand, apparently doesn’t even know what day it is.

Former Vice President Joe Biden misstated the locations of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, while speaking to donors at a high-dollar fundraiser in San Diego on Sunday night.

Biden, 76, mistakenly referred to the shootings as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,” but later corrected himself, according to a pool report. Biden seemingly confused Houston for El Paso and Michigan for Ohio when speaking to donors about the shootings.

Imagine being so high profile and not knowing what the locations of the two mass shootings that had just taken place a day earlier. How does one make that mistake? The simple answer is that Biden is just old. No, I don’t think he’s going to fall over dead tomorrow, but he appears to have even worse faculties than you’d expect from a nearly 80 year old man. He routinely misstates things. At the debate the other night he made no less than 9 verbal gaffes, including asking people to “Go to Joe 30330,” seemingly not knowing that he wasn’t citing a website. Other times he simply appeared confused.

As a political exercise, I’d like you to imagine what the media would do if Donald Trump misstated the locations of both of these mass shootings. Heck, let’s say he just flubbed the name of one of them. It would result in wall to wall coverage, mostly asserting that Trump cares so little for the victims that he couldn’t even bother to learn the names of the cities the shootings took place in. They wouldn’t be wrong either. If you are the President or running for President, you should be lucid and knowledgeable enough to not think shootings that took place in El Paso and Dayton happened in Houston and Michigan. Because it’s Biden though, it’s just brushed aside because he has the right politics.

This is a problem for him going forward. The “sleepy Joe” label has stuck and he’s reinforcing its truth every time he speaks publicly. It’s worth remembering we are still well over a year out from the election. What will Biden’s disposition be like next summer after a year of campaigning? The odds are it won’t be good.

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

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.

Mexico Says It Will Sue the United States Over El Paso Shooting

Law enforcement from different agencies work the scene of a shooting at a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019.

The Mexican government is promising to take legal action against the United States for “failing to protect” its citizens after some Mexican nationals were among the victims of Saturday’s mass shooting in El Paso, TX.

Ebrard called Saturday’s shooting an “act of barbarism.”

“The president has instructed me to ensure that Mexico’s indignation translates into … efficient, prompt, expeditious and forceful legal actions for Mexico to take a role and demand that conditions are established that protect … Mexicans in the United States,” Ebrard said in a video posted on Twitter.

This seems like a fairly foolish precedent to set.

Countless American citizens have been kidnapped and killed inside of Mexico over the past decades. There’s also the violence perpetrated inside of the United States by Mexican nationals, usually in connection with Mexican drug cartels and/or gangs. You could even broaden this out to include drug overdoses, of which most of the drugs crossing our border illegally come from or through Mexico.

One Angel Mom responded to the foreign minister’s statement.

I’m not sure what the purpose of Mexico’s posturing here is given the actual realities. They have no ability to force changes in U.S. law to protect their citizens nor do they have any legal ground to claim their citizens are in some kind of unique danger within the United States. Statistically, they are far safer on our side of the border. Perhaps the Mexican government thinks this will help them in some future, unrelated negotiation if used as leverage?

Regardless of their motive, there’s something gross about the double standard given the violent conditions in their own country. The fact that are media are reporting this uncritically is also disappointing, yet typical.
