‘Morning Joe’ Crew Compares Trump to Mussolini [WATCH]

Westlake Legal Group MSNBC-620x423 ‘Morning Joe’ Crew Compares Trump to Mussolini [WATCH] Trump Derangement Syndrome Trump mussolini Morning Joe Media Joe Scarborough Front Page Stories Featured Story Donny Deutsch

‘Morning Joe’ convened a giant panel on Thursday to break down the Democrat debates. Unsurprisingly, the conversation devolved into “orange bad man” quite quickly. Host and struggling musician Joe Scarborough compared Trump to “Fat Bastard” from the Austin Powers movies. He was so tickled by his own “genius” that he could not stop droning on about it until he was sure every person understood the brilliance of his comparison, and when it seemed there were some people on the panel who didn’t get it or didn’t think it was funny he didn’t let that stop him. Scarborough continued to beat a dead movie character until Donnie Deutsch screamed “Uncle!” and acknowledged the reference.

Although the topic was the debate stage, Deutsch could not resist the urge to compare Trump to a totalitarian despot. It’s become a fetish at this point.

You used the ‘Austin Powers’ rather light metaphor. I with all seriousness, the Mussolini, when Mussolini is standing up on the terrace like this, with a face like that, to me, the parallels with Trump in terms of that self-satisfaction at the chaos he’s creating, the parallels are stunning there. You know what’s so ironic? Coming off of, to me, pretty poor debates both nights for the Democrats, if Trump stood up and basically talked about the economy, talked about, ‘Hey, by the way, two benchmark Democratic strongholds, criminal reform and immigration, by the way, they brought up that Obama deported more people than I ever did. By the way, they were arguing about critical reform. I passed the most comprehensive Criminal Prison Reform Act.’ Stronghold Democratic benchmarks that he could own, of course he doesn’t go there.

Hysterical LITERALLY HITLERWestlake Legal Group 2122 ‘Morning Joe’ Crew Compares Trump to Mussolini [WATCH] Trump Derangement Syndrome Trump mussolini Morning Joe Media Joe Scarborough Front Page Stories Featured Story Donny Deutsch  ing aside, Deutsch’s statement is tragically indicative of the current state of the mainstream press. Although their job is to report on the mechanics of government (among other things) they are so feverish with Trump Derangement Syndrome that they can only report on what they think he said instead of what he is saying. If they actually ever listened to Trump instead of just reading their own headlines in one never-ending circle jerk they would know that he is constantly tweeting and talking about all those things. Every chance he gets he talks about how great his economy is, how he’s worked to pass criminal reform and done so successfully and how Obama was worse on all those policies than he is. Trump loves to talk about his own accomplishments…why Deutsch and company don’t know that is perplexing since they’re always complaining about how egotistical he is.

Do you know who else ignored facts in order to form their own narratives, Donnie?

Mussolini.

TRANSCRIPT (video below):

 

SCARBOROUGH: “Did you see the Austin Powers movies? He reminded me at times of the Fat Bastard, it’s a character. It’s a character in ‘Austin Powers’. And he’s sniffing and looking around, he’s saying, ‘Thank you, thank you.’ I thought he was going to say ‘Get into my stomach’ at one point. He’s just really starting to take on this role of Dear Leader. And you can see it last night more than usual. He’s amping it up. He’s amping his audiences up, amping up his racial attacks and the demagoguery. This is a guy — he is, as David Brooks said this morning in ‘The New York Times,’ he’s a force, and the only way the Democrats are going to beat him is with an equal force.”
GEIST: “Well, I mean, we have become so numb to the way that Donald Trump behaves. And when you watch a rally like that, it’s worth pausing to recognize that the President of all the United States and all of these cities is trashing the cities over which he presides, whether it’s Los Angeles or San Francisco or Baltimore. But he knows politically he’s not going to win those places, so he’s made a calculation he can go after that to stoke up the people in that crowd and stoke up the people who voted for him last time. I think it’s also worth mentioning, Yamiche, how far the bar has been lowered for Donald Trump. When everyone was crossing their fingers and saying, ‘Let’s see if he asks the public, the group in front of him, or encourages the group in front of him to chant ‘Send them back’ about the United States citizens, about United States congresswomen. And when he does don’t that, everyone says, ‘Oh, good, okay, at least he didn’t do that.’ That’s the president of the United States and people are acting grateful that he didn’t let the crowd chant ‘Send them back.’”
BRZEZINSKI: “Good point.”
ALCINDOR: “In some ways this is what has made Trump to be able to survive scandals and controversies, because right when you think he’ll hit the lowest, President Trump pulls back just a little and says, ‘You know what? I won’t go for the racist chant of send her back. Instead, what I’ll do is make light for several minutes of the suffering of families and of American citizens all across this country in places like Baltimore and Chicago, which happened to have majority black cities and centers. But then not make — not talk about the suffering that’s going on in the state that he’s in, which is Ohio. I just came back from Ohio. There’s a place called Masonry, Ohio, and it’s nicknamed Misery, Ohio because people there are suffering so much between economic devastation and drug overdoses. And the President didn’t say anything about that. Abby Phillip of CNN had a really smart tweet, she said, ‘Can you imagine a president going on an extended riff about the opioid crisis and overdoses in rural areas across this country?’ And you probably can’t. And it’s true, you probably can’t imagine the President focusing on the counties that I visited, which are 95% white, 91% white in a lot of areas that went for him overwhelmingly in Ohio. He doesn’t want to talk about the struggles those places are facing because a lot of them are run by Republicans.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Yeah. When he’s walking around like that, Donny Deutsch, if I’m a little kid, I’m worried, I’m just worried. ‘Get in my stomach.’ It’s an ‘Austin Powers’ joke, we’ll show you the clips later. So, Donny, Jonathan Lemire and the Associated Press wrote an article this past week about how Donald Trump keeps lowering the bar. That every time you think he has gone as low as he can possibly go, which is of course over three years, has been a great deal. Even the most cynical White House observers before he started attacking Elijah and started attacking these women of color in Congress thought that Trump had gone as low as he could go. As Jonathan reports, a lot of reporters and people inside the White House were shocked that actually the frantic sort of management lifestyle has become even more detached and even more dangerous.”
BRZEZINSKI: “Yes.”
SCARBOROUGH: “We don’t know where the bottom is. We do know that he continues to shock by the day.”
DEUTSCH: “You used the ‘Austin Powers’ rather light metaphor. I with all seriousness, the Mussolini, when Mussolini is standing up on the terrace like this, with a face like that, to me, the parallels with Trump in terms of that self-satisfaction at the chaos he’s creating, the parallels are stunning there. You know what’s so ironic? Coming off of, to me, pretty poor debates both nights for the Democrats, if Trump stood up and basically talked about the economy, talked about, ‘Hey, by the way, two benchmark Democratic strongholds, criminal reform and immigration, by the way, they brought up that Obama deported more people than I ever did. By the way, they were arguing about critical reform. I passed the most comprehensive Criminal Prison Reform Act.’ Stronghold Democratic benchmarks that he could own, of course he doesn’t go there. The scary thing for me, and Joe, you and I talked about this last week, as him being a transactional ideologue, is he’s going to keep lowering it, keep digging, digging into the base, and then some time around April or May of next year pivot and start acting somewhat normal. And to your whole premise of the segment, that because —“
BRZEZINSKI: “This is normal.”
DEUTSCH: “So, so low. That when he starts just giving a Normandy speech and talks about why don’t we relook at health care a little bit, people are go wow. A mad irony that worries me. He’s going to keep going there. I think I should’s the — I think it’s top it is, I think he’s going to dig and dig and then Pivot and then be tough to beat.”
SCARBOROUGH: “He’s not proven himself capable of being disciplined for more than a day or two. He can give the Normandy speech and then give an interview on Fox News with the crosses of the dead from D-Day behind him and launch the most inflammatory, terrible political attacks against people in the United States. So he can’t — he’s incapable of doing that. I will say the thing that last night’s rally showed — it was a great — I think it was a great comparison with what the Democrats were doing. It showed here is a guy that strutted across the stage. He was — he was being a demagogue. Picking at racial resentments and then you go like the previous two nights you have Democrats going, you know, I have looked at subsection three of page 487 of your Medicare for all plan and I fear that after the third deductible that the coverage may not be as satisfactory if you are in Medicare zone three instead of Medicare zone one. Of course you have to weigh that with a Brookings — I could go because the Democrats went on all night.”
BRZEZINSKI: “They did.”
SCARBOROUGH: “They never — there’s not a Democrat on the stage that understands how to take it to a higher level, that understands the bigger things. I think most importantly, something that Trump understood from the very beginning they need to get you don’t have to play by the rules. If CNN or MSNBC sets up a question to say, senator Harris, Joe Biden is a jerk and he thinks you’re a jerk. How do you respond? You know what? They don’t have to play by the rules. They can go I think Joe Biden has served this country well. Very proud of everything he’s done and I stand with Joe Biden. He stands with me. Now let’s talk about the man who is changing America for the worst. Donald Trump. They don’t have to take the bait, but they always do. And there doesn’t seem to be a Democrat that understands where we are right now in history against this man.”
KAY: “Yeah. I was laughing, so I’m glad — I got lost in the whole health care debate too. At one point I was thinking do I not know my health care policy enough, if I don’t understand this, I’m covering this every day, what are the voters making of this? You’re right. Look, if they’re going to try to go high as a party in a sense these debates are certainly not the best opportunity to take on Barack Obama as you have been saying, Joe, over the last couple of days the most popular living Democrat at the moment and they don’t need to do that game of taking on each other. That’s why that second night in particular of the debates was so dissatisfying and why it makes the field look so weak. I struggled by the end of that three hour long second debate to see Joe Biden up against Donald Trump on a debate stage. I mean, Donald Trump will change the facts, ignore the facts, reverse himself. But he’ll do it with the phenomenal bluster and confidence the whole time through. And against that if Joe Biden with the nominee were to put in the performance he was looking tired and not in control. The only reason that Biden is ahead in the pack is because people think he can win that belief can disappear pretty fast. Once it does what are the Democrats left with?”

Chick-Fil-A Does not Bow to Social Pressure and Becomes Most Favored Restaurant Chain

Westlake Legal Group ChickFilAMBStadium Chick-Fil-A Does not Bow to Social Pressure and Becomes Most Favored Restaurant Chain Social Justice political correctness Nanny State Get Woke Go Broke Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post corporate boycotts Chick-Fil-A Capitalism Business & Economy Boycotts Allow Media Exception Activism

The Chick-fil-A at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA. Screen grab via CFA.

One company that does not pay heed to the outrage mob benefits as a result.

It has been a constant item in the news that the fast-food chain Chick-Fil-A is targeted as a hate-filled and intolerant business entity. Activist groups have attempted to stage boycotts on the regular, and their childish bleating has even led to politically liberal municipalities to work against allowing the company to perform basic commercial practice in their areas. It is all part of our new social reality of permissive intolerance made in the name of tolerance.

To its credit the company has been mostly muted in these social skirmishes — and also to its benefit. While the chicken purveyor has been routinely demonized in the press it has remained calmly steadfast in its mission statement, and as a result it has only grown in response. The past few years has seen the chain rise among the most successful franchises in the country, and now it has achieved a new accomplishment — Chick-Fil-A has been voted the country’s favorite fast-food restaurant.

As measured by Market Force, which conducts surveys of diners on a variety of metrics, the chicken chain came in ahead of the 2018 most-favored chain, In-And-Out Burger. This has to be a blow to the various leftist activist groups and other social cranks who have taken up the mantle in recent years of making products political, and food racist. (Judd Legum has made this his career’s sole intent.)

It is difficult to remember back to an era when our commercial buying interests were not fraught with all manner of social implication. These days we accept the infinitely fatiguing reality that we are in a state of perpetual hectoring about our marketplaces. On the one hand there is a nobility to voting with your wallet. We have that freedom in the free market, to elect which products we prefer to purchase with our private funds. But the social scolds have taken it to all new levels of outlandish outrage.

These days we are badgered as to which products support nefarious politicians, who the CEOs are who donate to improper organizations, or what brands advertise on the wrong news channel. “If you buy your son a Louisville Slugger you support those who club baby harp seals!!!” It gets so bad that you have to be aware of not only which product you buy, but that the approved item is sold by the approved store. Sure, that soda may have proceeds that go to Planned Parenthood, but if it was bought at a Wal-Mart you are still an evil conservative hate-monger!

This spending dictate recently reached an asinine level when there was a call for people to start boycotting Home Depot because one of its founders donates to Donald Trump. The claim was buying a hammer puts money in Trump’s pocket, so we should shop at Lowes instead. Three problems with this effort:
1) The founder had retired from Home Depot over 15 years ago.
2) Another founder was a frequent donor to the Democrats
3) Lowes is a primary donor to GOP candidates.

While Chick-Fil-A has been featured frequently in news cycles it differs from many other companies that have been connected to social activist prolix. Unlike examples such as Target Stores (gendered bathrooms), Dick’s Sporting Goods (gun control), or Gillette Razors (toxic males), the chicken chain has not inserted itself into the social discourse; it has always been dragged into the debate. Each of those above companies boldly made an announced virtue stance, and each ended up suffering commercially as a result.

Meanwhile Chick-Fil-A quietly conducted its business, and look at the rewards it is reaping. Market data shows that the chain is taking in more than double the revenue than McDonald’s restaurants — and that is while famously operating with one fewer business day per week. (Some estimates have shown that by closing on Sundays the company is losing out on roughly $1 billion in additional sales annually.)

It seems the outrage culture that draws so much attention actually carries little influence. Not only do their calls for incensed boycotts mostly fail to have an impact, but companies which cater to the crank-set also suffer. Turns out the blowhards do not easily part with cash. Soon enough the corporate suits may start to realize the impotence these activists actually possess.

VP Pence Spoke In Atlanta Friday And Strongly Denounced Socialism While Democratic Socialists of America Held A Convention Down The Street

Vice President Mike Pence made an appearance Friday at the Resurgent Conference in Atlanta and strongly denounced socialism even as the Democratic Socialists of America held a convention in the same city; and in fact, right down the street.

While the vice president used rhetoric that strongly warned against the embrace of socialism and cautioned that the ideology is antithetical to the American founding principles, he also swiped at Democrats who have moved further left and chosen to embrace socialism as a winning strategy.

“Those people [at the Democratic debates] were standing so far on the left, I thought that stage was going to flip over,” Pence joked with the crowd attending conservative radio host Erick Erickson’s 2019 Resurgent Conference. “Seriously, today’s Democratic Party is dominated by left-wing liberals.”

He then stated, with a more serious tone: “The moment America becomes a socialist country is the moment America ceases to be America.”

The DSA, who reportedly gathered to discuss officially supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) campaign for president, met on the same weekend a few miles down the road. According to a socialist web site, they have another overarching agenda as well.

All the various factions within the DSA are working on the best way to channel opposition behind the Democratic Party in the upcoming election. One resolution, associated with the North Star caucus, declares that the “defeat of Trumpism is … the most important political task of our time,” that is, that the DSA must support whatever Democratic Party candidates are chosen.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution struck an oddly empathetic tone in covering Pence’s speech in relation to the DSA’s convention, giving the impression the poor socialists

By painting his political adversaries as socialists, the vice president is echoing the most popular Republican attack line ahead of next year’s election. They have assailed Democrats, including some 2020 candidates, who back Medicare for All and a more aggressive approach to climate change.

The AJC offered a similarly conciliatory tone in previewing the event about 2 weeks before it happened.

Republicans are increasingly painting their political adversaries as socialists even as more Democratic politicians and 2020 hopefuls are embracing left-leaning issues that just a few years ago would have been unthinkable.

The group, founded in 1982, is hoping to capitalize on the newfound interest. Membership soared after President Donald Trump’s victory and organizers say they now count 56,000 members nationally and expect as many as 1,000 delegates in Atlanta for the Aug. 1-4 event.

The organization scored major victories in the 2018 midterms by sending its first two members to Congress – U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib – and notching wins in lower-level races.

It’s becoming increasingly clear, as Democrats turn on former President Barack Obama and shift the Overton window in an attempt to normalize their command and control approach to governing, the discussion of how far left the country is comfortable moving will be on every candidate’s lips — on the right and left — until November 2020.

The Washington Post Sure Looks Like a Russian Asset

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s a sampling of that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A 23-Year-Old Truck Driver Kills 7 Members of a Marines Motorcycle Club. Details Revealed at Trial are Abhorrent

Westlake Legal Group truck-856345_1280-620x388 A 23-Year-Old Truck Driver Kills 7 Members of a Marines Motorcycle Club. Details Revealed at Trial are Abhorrent west springfield volodymyr zhukovskyy Veterans Uncategorized Texas randolph New Hampshire Massachusetts jarheads motorcycle club Government Front Page Stories Featured Story crime baytown Allow Media Exception

 

 

On July 21st, on a rural highway in Randolph, New Hampshire, something terrible happened.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy — of West Springfield, Massachusetts — crossed over the yellow center line of U.S. Route 2 and hit a group of motorcyclists.

The 23-year-old was in a 2016 Dodge 2500 Tradesman crew-cab pickup pulling a very long flatbed trailer.

Tragically, he struck and killed seven members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, an  organization for Marines and their spouses.

Three others were injured. Volodymyr was not.

Now new information’s come to light, making Volodymyr’s part in the tragedy more egregious.

Court proceedings have revealed the Westfield Transport truck driver was reaching for a beverage just before the accident. But what may have substantially aided in the catastrophe was the fact that he, according to The Boston Globe, was on drugs:

Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, tested positive after the June 21 collision for an unspecified drug that rendered him incapable of driving safely, federal regulators found. The report does not specify the drug beyond saying it was a narcotic or amphetamine.

And what was Volodymyr doing driving in the first place? He had arrest records involving both drug charges and traffic incidents across 6 states.

Here’s a sampling, courtesy of USA Today:

Zhukovskyy was involved in a June 3 rollover crash in Baytown, Texas, near Houston. He was driving a truck hauling five cars on Interstate 10 when he flipped the rig onto its side.

[I]n Baytown, Texas, police on Feb. 11 responded to a 2 a.m. call of a disorderly customer at a Denny’s restaurant. In video captured by a body-worn police camera released this week, Zhukovskyy is in constant motion and wailing his arms.

“I’m sorry guys. I’m just tired,” Zhukovskyy says. “I need to go to sleep.”

Police asked whether he was on drugs. He denied being on drugs but police arrested him for possession of drug paraphernalia after they found a drug pipe on him.

Zhukovskyy’s most recent arrest – which should have caused his commercial driver’s licnsed to be taken away – occurred on May 11 in East Lindsor, Connecticut, after he failed a sobriety test.

During that arrest, Zhukovskyy made “suicidal comments” and exhibited “extreme behavior,” according to a report filed by East Windsor police, prompting them to send him to a Hartford hospital for treatment. He was released on a $2,500 non-surety bond.

Back to my question:

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has admitted his license should have been revoked following a drunken-driving incident last month in Connecticut…

Amid the controversy, the RMV’s top official has stepped down.

More from the Globe:

“The RMV’s failures are totally unacceptable and the administration hopes that the families who lost loved ones in this terrible tragedy can begin to find some solace as justice is sought in this case,” said Patrick Marvin, a MassDOT spokesman.

What a fiasco.

Though Volodymyr became a permanent U.S. resident in 2008, his criminal history puts him in violation of that status.

As reported by Boston’s CBS 4:

He is being held in a jail in Lancaster, New Hampshire. The Department of Homeland Security issued an immigration detainer on Zhukovskyy June 23, which means he could be deported back to the Ukraine if he’s released from police custody.

To me, 23 seems young for a truck driver. That’s a lot of size and weight to be herding down the freeway at 70 mph. But maybe I’m wrong. Either way, given his condition and record, the fact that Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was behind the wheel of anything more powerful than a unicycle is inexplicable. And now, over half a dozen families will never be the same.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enjoy The Schadenfreude: AOC’s Chief of Staff Edition

Westlake Legal Group aoc-ocasio-cortez-2-620x413 Enjoy The Schadenfreude: AOC’s Chief of Staff Edition You're Fired! Saikat Chakrabarti Nancy Pelosi Justice Democrats Green New Deal George Soros Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post brand new congress AOC Allow Media Exception

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @ SXSW 2019 by nrkbeta, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (former) chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, is so intensely disliked that even the House Democrats send hates tweet his way, and Friday afternoon he was kicked to the curb. Sure, it was labeled a “resignation” and opportunity to make more money during what’s sure to be the most expensive election cycle ever.

People who aren’t brainwashed, brain dead wannabe socialists dislike him for an entirely different reason than the House Democrats, that reason being that he foisted one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upon the country. While she’s been a page click factory for every online news publication (and if they try to deny that, they’re either lying or not very good writers), that’s an unforgivable offense.

On the occasion of Saikat Chakrabarti’s legendary loss to senile, over-Botoxed, white grandma Nancy Pelosi, take a moment to sit back and laugh at these sick burns.

The whole drama has been quite Game-of-Thronesy, and Saikat didn’t learn the proper lessons from that show.

Although he was warned.

The typical Twitter response would be to learn to… um, nevermind.

Watch out, @Jehu11. Implying that the Squad is a “coven” could get you into trouble – just ask the man who made a billboard depicting them as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse learned.

Whatever you do, Twitter, don’t say anything that will remind the people of…

Whoops.

But this is probably closer to the truth. During the first few months of this year, disturbing details (details which could send him to federal lockup if true) about Chakrabarti’s financial relationship with AOC’s campaign, Justice Democrats, and Brand New Congress came to light.

Unfortunately, like both a bad rash and Kamala Harris, it’d be foolish to believe we’ve seen the last of Saikat Chakrabarti.

Especially since Soros has just created and funded a new Super PAC for the 2020 election cycle. Plus, it doesn’t seem like Chakrabarti’s quite cut out to lead a movement based on the Green New Deal.

Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 Remark Convinced a Veteran to Run for Office. Now He’s Gunnin’ for Her Seat

Westlake Legal Group soldier-870399_1280-620x403 Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 Remark Convinced a Veteran to Run for Office. Now He’s Gunnin’ for Her Seat Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

In case you haven’t heard, Quad Squad member Ilhan Omar is getting some competition in the form of Desert Storm vet Chris Kelley.

The Minnesota police officer is new to the political arena, but he’s aiming to replace what he deems someone severely lacking in love of country.

Chris appeared on Fox Friday to talk about his run for Representative.

Host Brian Kilmead asked why a guy with his background would wanna throw his hat into the ring:

“Chris, you don’t really have political experience, but you certainly have patriotism with your background in law enforcement and the military. What caused you to jump in this mostly Democratic district as an independent?”

The aspiring congressman broke some big news: He was motivated to oust Ilhan by her comment on September 11th — which some have labeled disgraceful:

“I was inspired by the 9/11 comments. Look, three thousand Americans died and many more first responders died responding to this. It was very dismissive and very disrespectful; I figured you can complain or you can try and do something. So here’s an opportunity to jump in the race and try and make a difference.”

But can Chris win? Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District ain’t exactly a hotbed of conservatism.

Here’s what he had to say:

“It is a heavily Democratic area. However, that being said, I think the lack of action by Congressperson Omar will allow me — there’ll be a lot of disaffected Democrats and there will also be Republicans who are dissatisfied with the congresswoman not doing anything. This gives me the opportunity, like I said, to make a difference, like I said. I’m on the ground here every day, I see the people, and this gives me an opportunity to make a difference and continue to serve.”

But wait — there’s more: Omar’s district is the #1 terroristic recruitment are of the United States (here).

That doesn’t sound like a waiting hug for Officer Kelley.

But he thinks she’s stinkin’ up the joint, and people are noticing:

“Well, she’s campaigning everywhere else. Now she’s in California; now she’s overseas; she’s not in the district. And people are noticing. Many people have said to me, what is she doing for us? She seems to be worried about her own celebrity and making the news. She’s not doing the job.”

So what’s Chris got that voters will like? He explained to Brian:

“I’m on the ground every day; I talk to people; I see the problems like drug use, homelessness, terrorist recruitment that’s going on. The people in the district need a voice, and I am somebody who’s not embroiled in controversy the way she is.”

As stated by Fox, Chris “has collected eleven military medals as a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Army and Army Reserves and clocked more than 36,000 hours patrolling the Minnesota streets as a 20-year veteran of the Minneapolis Police Force.”

And he wants to see the law enforced at the border:

“Immigration is a big issue right now. I believe in having a secure border; if you don’t have a country you don’t have a border and our border agents are doing a great job, but they are being overwhelmed and Congress isn’t giving them the tools they need. But I would also like to see a pathway to citizenship for those under DACA; they couldn’t help they were brought here and need a shot to be able to stay here.”

To some, Chris’s ideas undoubtedly seem insane. And the guy has no political experience.

Sounds perfect.

#AOC
