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

But So Far, They’re Not Running wealth Uncategorized riches Politics michelle obama Michael Moore Larry King Hypocrisy Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Barack Obama Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

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

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

Michael once asserted to Larry King:

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

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

HEY, LOOK — A SQUIRREL!

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

Uhhh…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nevertheless, Michael says Mrs. Obama would dominate:

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

Who’s “you”?

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

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

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

Melania placed third.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kamala Harris Is Already Fundraising Off the Mass Shootings

Kamala Harris – Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

This is just gross.

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

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

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

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

Trump Takes Down Warren Again: ‘I Have More Indian Blood Than She Does, & I Have None’

Westlake Legal Group dream-catcher-4065288_1280-620x414 Trump Takes Down Warren Again: ‘I Have More Indian Blood Than She Does, & I Have None’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

In case you missed it: On Thursday, the President continued his harangue of “Pocahontas.”

While speaking at a rally in Cincinnati, Trump criticized Democratic leaders and their poor service to the nation’s “inner cities.” Along the way, he took a shot at 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren, who allegedly used her status as an American Indian to further her career, despite her status as a white, nowhere-near-an-American-Indian lady (she says it wasn’t her fault — her family told her she wasn’t white; and, presumably, she hadn’t heard tell of them newfangled gadgets, mirrors).

Here’s what The Donald had to say:

“…a man who really has done a fantastic job. He campaigned so hard, and this was a star right from the fields of the great Pocahontas, who’s now lying and cheating her way to the presidency if possible. She’s trying to win. Remember? She defrauded people with her credentials. She said she was Indian, and I said that I have more Indian blood than she does – and I have none. I’m sorry – and we drove her crazy, and we drove her crazy. That’s a good thing, not a bad thing. And she went out and she had a blood test done, and it came out 1,024. He says, ‘Somewhere back there, hundreds of years ago, there may have been an Indian, or it may have been a statistical error,’ [because] it was so small, which it was.”

Elizabeth’s claimed heritage certainly plays a shady part in her backstory.

As reported by The Daily Wire:

The Washington Post obtained a card for the State Bar of Texas from 1986, allegedly filled out by Warren herself, on which her ethnicity was listed as “American Indian.”

The outlet adds that from 1986 to 1995, Warren listed herself as a “minority” in the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) directory. Additionally, from 1995 to 2004, Harvard Law School reportedly listed Warren as Native American on forms relating to affirmative action.

The Harvard Crimson referenced then-Harvard Law School spokesman Mike Chmura when it included the following passage in a 1996 article:
Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.

“Warren also had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American in December 1989 while working at the University of Pennsylvania,” reports The Washington Post.

It’s an issue which continues to arise in many forms — see here.

And, as Trump stated, he did indeed claim a ways back that he was more of an Indian than she.

At the time, Luke Skywalker wasn’t into it:

Others were upset, as well.

“Indigenous People,” of course, would accurately refer to all people born in the United States. Or to no people — those to whom some refer as Native Americans migrated to North America from Asia via the Bering Strait (here).

That’s unlikely to matter to many who detest the President and virtually every word that comes out of his mouth. As for his insult directed at Elizabeth, is she any kind of actual threat?

Is there any chance Sen. Warren could even become the Democratic nominee?

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

Westlake Legal Group gs-bernie-sanders-620x413 NEW: The Dayton Shooter Was a Satanist, Leftist-Socialist, and Bernie/Warren Fan, Supported Antifa socialist shooter Satanist Politics Ohio leftist Ilhan Omar Heavy.com Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Elizabeth Warren democrats democrat dayton Betts Bernie Sanders AOC antifa

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

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

Here’s some of what was found.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bill Maher Welcomes an Economic Crisis If It’ll Oust Trump – ‘It’s Worth It’

Westlake Legal Group piggy-bank-2889046_1920-620x372 Bill Maher Welcomes an Economic Crisis If It’ll Oust Trump – ‘It’s Worth It’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

During the Bill Clinton era, the resounding wisdom was, “It’s the economy, stupid.”

Now, at least for Bill Maher, the economy’s stupid — because “It’s the beating of Donald Trump, dummy.”

During Friday’s “Overtime” segment from Bill’s eponymous HBO show Real Time, he offered something with which surely some Democrats would agree: It’d be worth people suffering economically in order to get Donald Trump out of the White House.

I can’t imagine it would strike a ton of people on the far Left as an offense — after all, as we’re constantly told, the man at JFK’s desk absolutely loves being a racist and flaunting it every chance he gets (here, here, and here).

Magically, it would seem, prior to him adding an “R” to his name, such wasn’t the case at all, in any way. That’s the conclusion one can easily draw from all things Trump-related before then — including his hobknobbing with Hollywood, his acceptance in Democratic circles, his mentoring of black cultural influencer Russell Simmons, and his iconic place in the lexicon of rap music.

But he added that “R” and BLAMMO!

Speaking of the racism thing, Bill warned the audience that Trump would again come out ahead if Democrats didn’t “come off less crazy.”

I think Bill’s right.

He explained that the Blueys’ best bet was “Trump fatigue”:

“Fatigue is the best thing we’ve got going for us. The majority of Americans aren’t tired of winning, they’re tired of looking at his fat f—ing face!. It’s hard to beat an incumbent in a good economy. Every incumbent since FDR has won if they avoided a recession leading up to an election year, and consumer confidence is sky-high. … The voters that Democrats need to win — moderates who have Trump fatigue — will vote against a good economy, I think, just to get back to normalcy, but they won’t trade it away for left-wing extremism.”

Not Crazy, for some, may be a tall order:

“All the Democrats have to do to win is to come off less crazy than Trump – and, of course, they’re blowing it! Coming across as unserious people who are going to take away all your money so migrants from Honduras can go to college for free and get a major in ‘America sucks.’”

Columnist Josh Barro pointed out that a recession would really hurt people.

Ultimately, Bill’s good with that — if that’s what it takes:

“I know, but it’s worth it.”

And who can step in for Trump? That would be ol’ faithful Joe Biden:

“He’s like nondairy creamer. Nobody loves it, but in a jam, it gets the job done. It’s the fatigue, stupid! Let’s make it hard for Trump to play on voters’ fears and let the fatigue win the election for us. We’ll get to the revolution, but remember, put on your oxygen mask before assisting your child.”

There’s another reason for Bill to be okay with an economic crisis: He has an estimated net worth of $100 million.

He’ll probably be okay.

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

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

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

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

From the Chicago NBC5 article,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Victoria’s Secret Grants Your Wish: Its New Underwear Angel is a Man

Westlake Legal Group light-night-love-shop-nyc-stage-481337-pxhere.com_-620x413 Victoria’s Secret Grants Your Wish: Its New Underwear Angel is a Man Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

In 1995, while talking about the famed underwear catalog, Jeff Foxworthy remarked, “That underwear they make now — it’s so skimpy, Victoria doesn’t have a whole lotta secrets left.”

Well, she’s gonna be trying to keep one…

According to Fox News, Victoria’s Secret has enlisted its first man to be its first woman being represented by its first man.

Brazil’s Valentina Sampaio — a guy identifying as a gal — will soon be front and center for any males wanting to get a look at a female in skimpy clothes.

And for any woman looking for someone like her in their drawers — they’ll get a dude.

Curiously — as in sports as of late — men continue their takeover of women in the role of being women. And the feminists are all crickets.

Maybe it’s a bit of damage control: If you weren’t familiar, VS got in some trouble a while back with regard to size and sirs.

As reported by The Daily Wire:

The inclusion of Sampaio comes months after L. Brands’ (parent company of Victoria’s Secret) Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek sparked the ire of social justice leftists when he told Vogue that little interest exists for plus-size and trans models on the runway.

“I think we address the way the market is shifting on a constant basis. If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked at putting a plus-size model in the show, we have,” Razek said, adding that the sister division, Lane Bryant, was created to fill that consumer need.

“We invented the plus-size model show in what was our sister division, Lane Bryant,” he continued. “Lane Bryant still sells plus-size lingerie, but it sells a specific range, just like every specialty retailer in the world sells a range of clothing. As do we.”

“We market to who we sell to, and we don’t market to the whole world,” he said. “We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t.”

Ed ended up apologizing. Here’s how that went:

“My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive. I apologize. To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings … and like many others, they didn’t make it. … But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”

Ever wish you had a penny for every time someone in the public eye used he word “insensitive”?

Victoria’s move is a logical cultural step — in 2017, Playboy debuted their first male Playmate — Ines Rau. That way, men could get exactly what they’re looking for when cracking open the bunny-eared mag: a half-nekkid man.

Outspoken pro-life porn star Jenna Jameson was unimpressed:

But the beat goes on:

Never let a crisis go to waste – that’s the number one rule of politics.

While America digs out from 3 mass shootings in the span of two weeks, Democrats fighting for their party’s nomination have taken the opportunity to weigh in on the chaos.

Beto O’Rourke didn’t mince words, directly calling Trump a racist and making his responsible for the shootings.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg was also quick to get in on the blame game, although slightly less pointed than Beto. The 2020 candidate said Trump’s rhetoric was responsible and that he encourages White nationalism.

“Yeah. I mean, at best he’s condoning and encouraging white nationalism … It is very clear that this kind of hate is being legitimized from on high.”

Woke Poet #Resists Act of Kindness, Brags About It And Pays The Price On Twitter

Westlake Legal Group Angry-Woman-620x413 Woke Poet #Resists Act of Kindness, Brags About It And Pays The Price On Twitter woke twitter scold poet Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story Culture Carol Rothstein

From the “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” file, part eleventy billion:

Caroline Rothstein is a self-described poet, performer and educator. One descriptor that is missing is “woke scold”.

Rothstein was waiting to exit a flight when a nearby gentleman made the woeful, serious offense of trying to help get her carry-on bag from the overhead bin.

Shocked at the audacity of a man…a WHITE man…showing common decency, Rothstein summoned her inner p***y hat to courageously #Resist the deep, dark oppression of courtesy. In the face of such dastardly kindness, Rothstein could be silent no longer. Her righteous indignation spilled out right there in the aisle of the plane, for all to see.

And just in case all didn’t see, she tweeted about it.

I’m not sure which is more amusing…that she was patting herself on the back for this or that she obviously seemed to think other people would as well.

Naturally, Twitter had its way with her.

Remember Carol’s name and face. She is the person who is holding up the line to get off the airplane so she can #Resist.

Good job, Carol. You’re doing great, sweetie!

The RedState Box Office Report – Profits In Crime

The King is usurped by “Et Duo Brutal”

After a dominating reign of 2 weeks the ruler of the box office has been felled by a pair of rampaging steroidal action stars. In what might be considered the final big push in theaters for the summer, we may not see another assured film topping $50 million until the sequel to “It” arrives in September.

Overall the summer has seen a lower return than 2018. With the exception of Disney dominance the summer saw mostly challenges for studios, relying as they did on the familiar and flooding the market with their sequels. Audiences were split, with some major hits and just as many stalled-out releases. There is just as much interest it seemed to seek out quality original content on streaming services.

 

HOBBS & SHAW – $60.8 Million
The first spinoff from the “The Fast & The Furious” has Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in a low-octane, high-testosterone action set piece that defies physics as well as conventional plot requirements. In other words, it is a typical F&F entrant, with a “Tango & Cash” component with the two leads. The number comes in right around expectations, with a healthy open overseas as well. Between the production costs and marketing this is sitting on a studio cost of over $300 million, which means it needs to draw at least $650 million globally to start seeing a profit. The exit scores were at least respectable, an “A -” grade, which should lead to a decent run.

2. THE LION KING – $38.24m
Continuing its summertime dominance, the animal retelling of “Hamlet” is now the second-highest earner for the year, behind only “Avengers: Endgame”. This weekend has the Disney remake streaking past $430 million in just 3 weeks. Already to this point the title has taken in over $1.2 billion globally, and in very short order it will launch into the top ten all-time for worldwide earnings.

3. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD – $20.02m
Quentin Tarantino’s biggest open is continuing to run well, keeping pace just ahead of his hit “Inglourious Basterds”. It takes a drop of -53%, which is rather strong, and better so once you consider the heft of the competition it is facing.

4. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME – $7.75m
This has been an unqualified hit in the Spidey history of movies. It is the highest earner globally and is the only title to earn over $1 billion. It is approaching second-best domestic release, and even when adjusted for inflation it stands as the 4th most popular. Sony has clearly benefited from partnering with Marvel on this property.

5. TOY STORY 4 – $7.15m
Continuing its strong run the playthings have now made over $400 million. It looks assured to be the highest earner in the franchise, and there is a shot it can cross the $1 billion mark worldwide.

6. YESTERDAY – $2.44m
After 6 strong weeks it is only now beginning to drop theaters. On the verge of making it past the $70 million mark in its successful run.

7. THE FAREWELL – $2.43m
The overly successful limited run has seen an expansion into an additional 274 screens. A true arthouse hit.

8. CRAWL – $2.15m
Lingering as a modest low-budget thriller counter-programming option it just might stick around enough to see it get into profitability.

9. ALADDIN – $2.01m
After eleven weeks it has now become Disney’s fifth movie to earn $350 million in 2019, and fifth to make over $1 billion internationally.

10. ANNABELLE COMES HOME – $875,000
A severe dropoff at the end means this horror option manages to still be included.
