Kamala Harris’s Comeback Against Tulsi Gabbard Was Childish and Elitist

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-1-620x366 Kamala Harris’s Comeback Against Tulsi Gabbard Was Childish and Elitist tulsi gabbard Politics kamala harris Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats debates Anderson Cooper Allow Media Exception 2020

During Wednesday’s Democrat debate, there was a moment where 2020 candidate, Hawaii’s Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, tore into California Senator Kamala Harris like a cat into tissue paper. It was brutal, to say the least, as Gabbard made Harris look like a massive phony when it came to criminal justice and self-aggrandizement.

Gabbard cited the fact that Harris laughed about smoking marijuana after putting away people for doing it for years. Gabbard also attacked Harris over withholding evidence that would have cleared a man on death row of guilt until she was forced to release that evidence.

Gabbard ended by saying that Harris owes the people she terrorized with her office an apology.

Harris was later given the chance to come back and explain herself in a post-interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN. I’d like to tell you that Harris was able to explain herself and shed light on the events that Gabbard highlighted.

She didn’t. Instead, she pulled a move straight out of high school and took the position that she was more popular than Gabbard and suggested that Gabbard polling at “zero or 1 percent or whatever” is the reason she went straight for Harris’s throat during the bebate.

“This is going to sound immodest, but I’m obviously a top-tier candidate, and so I did expect that I would be on the stage and take hits tonight because there are a lot of people that are trying to make the stage for the next debate,” Harris said during interview with CNN Wednesday night after the last Democratic presidential debate in Detroit. “Especially when people are at zero or 1 percent or whatever she might be at, and so I did expect that I might take hits tonight.”

“Listen, this coming from someone who has been an apologist for an individual, Assad, who has murdered the people of his country like cockroaches,” Harris told CNN. “I can only take what she says and her opinion so seriously, and so I’m prepared to move on.”

In summary, Harris has no comeback and instead resorting to being catty. This is the equivalent of resorting to mentioning someone having few Twitter followers in response to a legitimate argument. It’s not really a counterpoint, it’s just thinking you’re above someone for being more famous.

This is the height of elitism. Harris comes off more like Hillary Clinton here, thinking that her popularity and backing will just carry her through any roadblock she might come across.

It didn’t work for Clinton, and it definitely won’t work for Harris. This didn’t at all make Harris look better, only worse, but it did make Gabbard look pretty stellar.

Elijah Cummings Has His House Broken Into, Democrat Super Sleuths Are On the Case

2017 AFGE Legislative Conference – Sunday

There was a bit of ironic news that came out yesterday evening.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, who was criticized by President Trump for the condition of his district, had his house broken into on July 27th. Cummings was of course at the center of a firestorm, in which Trump was called a racist for pointing out the serious crime and poverty issues in Baltimore, which Cummings’ district includes the worst parts of. There was objectively nothing racist about the comments, but that doesn’t seem to be a prerequisite anymore.

Because this break in happened on the same day that Trump leveled his criticisms of Baltimore and Cummings, that led to some pretty wild conspiracy theories.

Here’s Joy Reid doing the “I didn’t say it but I’m saying it” routine, inviting the onslaught of crazy.

“Held accountable” for his “words” sounds really pro-free speech right?

There’s a problem with all this nonsense though. The break-in happened before Trump even tweeted.

Apparently, Trump’s diabolical evil knows no bounds, not even those of time and space.

The ridiculous thing here is so many people running to a mindless, illogical conspiracy theory instead of just blaming the obvious, namely that Baltimore is a crime-ridden mess and not even Elijah Cummings is immune. This is a city with a murder rate higher than Afghanistan, and it’s not even close. Six people alone were killed last weekend. While Democrats were rushing to gaslight on how wonderful Baltimore is, those committing crimes didn’t take the day off because they never do.

This break-in is not some Watergate scheme to frame Cummings’ district, as some are stupidly suggesting. It’s simply the reality of Cummings’ district.

N.C. Gun Shop Billboard Targets ‘The Squad’ And Has Triggered The Left

In this combination image from left; Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., July 10, 2019, Washington, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., March 12, 2019, in Washington, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY., July 12, 2019, in Washington, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., July 10, 2019, in Washington. In tweets Sunday, President Donald Trump portrays the lawmakers as foreign-born troublemakers who should go back to their home countries. In fact, the lawmakers, except one, were born in the U.S. (AP Photo)

 

A small North Carolina gun shop put up a highway billboard which makes fun of “The Squad.” The sign shows photos of Democratic Reps. AOC (NY), Rashida Tlaib (MI), Ilhan Omar (MN) and Ayanna Pressley (MA) under a caption which reads, “The 4 Horsemen Cometh are Idiots.” Beneath their photos, it says, Signed, The Deplorables. Cherokee Guns 1 miles on right.”

Here is a photo of the billboard from Cherokee Gun’s Facebook page.

The shop decided to up the ante and posted a new message on Facebook:

Alright my fellow Infidels for Trump…due to OVERWHELMING demand…you may come by the shop (next week) and get your very own FOUR HORSEMEN COMETH STICKER…simple…eat a piece of bacon…tell us you’re voting for Trump in 2020…then get your limited edition bumper sticker!! (While supplies last!) Snowflakes and Liberals are not eligible…sorry…

Naturally, gun control advocates are up in arms about this billboard. They are saying the sign incites violence against the freshman foursome who claim they’ve “been receiving numerous death threats.” It compares the Squad to the “4 horsemen,” “a biblical reference that represents conquest, war, famine and death.”

Tlaib joined the fray tweeting, “How the hell is this not inciting violence?”

I would answer the Congresswoman by asking instead, “How the hell is this inciting violence?”

Some on the left are arguing that the sign is both racist and violent.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, for example, maintains that President Trump’s “racial rhetoric” is inciting violence.

On the group’s Facebook page, they wrote, “Disgusting anti-government violent rhetoric from Cherokee Guns in North Carolina, Threats against members of Congress, particularly minority members are [up] and it is driven by the president’s racial rhetoric. This is dangerous!!!”

Pressley apparently agrees and, in the tweet below, she calls on Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) to have the billboard taken down.

Here are several responses to the post from Facebook users:

“What, no targets on their faces?”

“Reported as terrorism.”

“You righties are just playing into the stereotype of your own making, aren’t you! You can’t go one day without looking like a bunch of fascist, minority hating a**holes who will follow your fuhrer blindly. I have yet to see a story or hear from a republican that doesn’t sound like Germany in the 40s.”

“This is really not a good look for your shop. Putting virtual targets on anyone’s head is just in poor taste.”

“Prepare to be put out if business, you racist piece of sh**.”

Others are just calling the billboard “racist,” because all four squad members are “women of color.”

The Democrats are trying to tie everything to race this election season. “Trump is a racist” is replacing “Trump colluded with the Russians” because that’s all they’ve got.

Ladies, we don’t mock you for your race, we mock you because of all the stupid comments you make and the political positions you support.

What Have You Got To Lose (Redux)

What Have You Got To Lose (Redux): Tactical, Operational & Strategic

By now, every sentient person in these United States is aware that President Trump (alleged by the left) made some “racist” comments about Representative Cummings’ district. This, in response to Cummings’ downright insulting harangue towards the Director of Homeland Security during a hearing on border security and migrant detainee conditions.

President Trump starting this past Sunday and continuing through the middle of this week, launched a barrage of tweets about the rat infested conditions in West Baltimore (Cummings’ district) stating the the Congressman might should focus on the squalor endured by his constituents, rather than telling lies about border conditions.

As this feud has developed, we’ve seen a host of sources, many of them liberal press and politicians, on camera stating essentially the same thing as President Trump regarding the conditions in Baltimore. In one instance, a liberal reporter is on camera roundly excoriating The President, when a rat photo bombs her spot by running past her in the background.

The President has clearly won this tactical fight. The Democrats can continue to scream “raayycciss!” all they wish, but Donald Trump owns this particular piece of terrain. All that remains, is to send the prisoners to the rear for interrogation, redistribute the ammo and plan for the next fight. That’s the tactical part.

The operational part is the election in 2020. Remember then Candidate Trump’s, “What do you have to lose?” to several Black audiences? As I pointed out in an earlier article, President Trump must (and likely will) visit Baltimore, San Diego, Detroit and a number of other Democrat run, third world, U.S. cities. While there, he’ll be able to point out that Representative Cummings has been in office since 1996…over two decades. Then he will pointedly ask, “What has Representative Cummings done for West Baltimore?” Next, he will point to a number of significant accomplishments of his administration. Finally, he will say again, “Try supporting me. After all, what have you got to lose?”

I discussed this with David Webb** the other day on his morning show. He added an important component. Republicans don’t need to go into Blue areas with the intent of changing party affiliation. “Don’t try to change folks from Democrat to Republican. Just help fix problems.” That will cause them in the privacy of the voting booth to vote their consciences. Party affiliation can come later.

If the economy keeps roaring, there is a visually significant piece of new border wall built, and the Democrats keep responding to his twitter feed like cats chasing the red dot, I see a blowout in 2020.

But what abut 2024 and beyond? That’s the Strategic level that most folks don’t give the President credit for operating on. It starts with changing the rules. My colleague Kira Davis notes

The rules in 2019 are that if you’re White, any non-White person is unassailable regardless of their personal character or their personal responsibility.

But Donald J. Trump doesn’t play by these silly rules. The Squad Coven found out abut this. Shortly thereafter, so did Civil rights “icon” Rep. Elijah Cummings. Heretofore “unassailable,” he was indeed assailed by The President regarding squalor and corruption in his district. This is the single most important concept the Republicans who follow the Trump Administration need to learn if they hope to retain Congress and the White House past 2024.

It’s OK to fight back! It’s OK to fight back, even when your assailant is a member of a protected class. It’s OK to fight back, even when your antagonist is a member of a protected class and allegedly a “civil rights icon.” Here is why this is so important. Democrats cry “raaayyyccciiisss!” at the drop of a hat. Heretofore, Republicans scurry away mewling apologies. This doesn’t give time for the true story to play out.

In this latest case, President Trump pointed out what a third world crap hole Rep, Cummings’ district is. Democrats immediately threw the race card. President Trump, not following the weak kneed Republican playbook, doubled down on the attack. This gave time for the facts to come out…and they did. Within 72 hours it turned it that in some areas of Cummings’ district the conditions are so squalid and the violence is so prolific, that those residents could legally apply for asylum—in Mexico!

This is the strategic message for Republicans. Stop allowing leftists to intimidate you. Make your case and stick with it. It’s true that the Democrat lie will travel around the World before the truth can saddle its horse, but if you hang on, it will eventually catch up and prove you right. This has been the hallmark of the Trump Presidency. Take it to heart…for 2024, and beyond.

The Pro-Life Movement Wins by Showing Compassion, Not by Mocking a Pro-Choice Congresswoman’s Miscarriage

In May 2019, as lawmakers in Georgia and Missouri were debating and passing more restrictive abortion laws (and as Alyssa Milano was losing her ever-loving mind and threatening to boycott a state she rarely visits and in which no one likes her to punish the feeble-minded voters), freshman Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) was one of the go-to Democrat voices on the topic, making the cable news show rounds discussing the topic.

While on the campaign trail Hill had emotionally shared her experience in facing an unplanned pregnancy and how she and her then-boyfriend (whom she married, but is now divorcing), both staunchly pro-choice, struggled with the decision before them, so she wasn’t speaking in hypotheticals. (Hill miscarried around the six-week mark.) In one of her media appearances discussing the Georgia and Missouri bills, on May 17, Hill explained to CNN’s Sunlen Serfaty:

“I felt like, ‘OK, this made the decision for me and it’s not meant to be right now,’ but at the same time, it is a loss. And I think even for women who terminate a pregnancy it’s a loss. I’ve heard that over and over again.”

During the interview, Hill announced publicly for the first time that she was no longer able to have children.

“She and her husband tried to get pregnant again later on, but she said she developed problems with her ovaries and can no longer have children. Even now, Hill thinks back to the pregnancy and struggles with whether she ‘might have missed that window forever.’”

Unfortunately, on the Republican side men like Texas state Rep. Tony Tinderholt were quite unhelpful in the battle to win hearts and minds with their tone-deaf and heartless comments and proposed legislation. Tinderholt’s bill:

“[W]ould criminalize all abortions, making it possible for women to be convicted of homicide and sentenced to death for having the procedure.

“He has previously said that his proposal would completely remove access to abortions and ‘force’ women to be ‘more personally responsible’ with sex.”

Many on the Republican “pro-life” side agree with Tinderholt’s tactic, believing that their extreme proposals will force progressives who are okay with post-birth abortion to see how ridiculous (and evil) they are. The biggest problem with that tactic is that these inhumane progressives are incapable of seeing how evil they are. The second biggest problem is that Tinderholt’s tactics drive away people who are more in the middle on the issue and now only see two crazy parties instead of one.

Add candidates like Todd Akin, who just don’t understand biology, to the conservative mix and, well, you almost can’t blame people in the middle for believing progressives when they say conservatives are mean, heartless, religious extremists who are dumb to boot.

One such candidate is one of Katie Hill’s GOP opponents, former fighter pilot Mike Garcia. In audio provided to RedState, which was recorded in late May, 2019, Garcia sounded eerily like Tinderholt when he characterized Hill’s comments about her miscarriage as Hill “taking credit for being lucky because of that miscarriage” and that he was going to beat her on the “abortion issue” by “hold[ing] her accountable for those types of words and those types of actions.” He further characterized a video in which Hill shared her story as “part of The Katie Hill Show.”

In this video Hill said (emphasis added):

“We’d been together for about a year when it happened. I was on birth control at the time, but I suddenly found myself pregnant. It was something that I never thought would happen to me, and if it did happen, I thought that I knew what I would do in that kind of situation. I’d always considered myself pro-choice, and I knew we weren’t ready to have kids….

“But what I didn’t know was what it would feel like to actually be faced with that kind of a choice.…In a lot of ways it was exactly because I was the only one who could make that kind of decision that I had never felt more alone.

“So I walked around in a haze for days. I just really didn’t know what to do. I thought that, you know, the rational decision should have been easy, but I didn’t think I could make it. I really thought that, you know, I was going to end up keeping the baby….

Then one morning I woke up and I had severe bleeding and cramps, and I realized I was having a miscarriage. And I started sobbing with simultaneous tears of relief and sadness, and guilt at feeling relief and confusion at feeling sad, and just so much conflicting emotion, and just the reality of having — being faced with that sort of situation when you’re so young.

“No one can really understand what it’s like to be faced with that kind of a choice.”

Does that sound like a woman who’s taking credit for being lucky she had a miscarriage?

Garcia’s comments were in response to a question, apparently by a moderator, at an event, and can be heard here. The crowd’s reaction – fully supportive – was just as disturbing as his comments.


Here is the text of Garcia’s full answer (again, emphasis added):

“So, I’m pro-life. And honestly, the debate – and you can Google this. It’s still online, and if it’s taken down I’ve got it somewhere. I’ll find it.

“There was a debate back in Simi Valley back in September of last year, September 20th of last year….She was asked about abortion, and she started telling her history and how she had the unplanned pregnancy. She still talks about it openly, so this isn’t me digging up dirt, right. This is part of the Katie Hill Show again.

“At the end of her comments she said, “Fortunately for me, I had a miscarriage.” Can you imagine? She was lucky to have a miscarriage. And I don’t care how you feel about abortion, that was a life, and she was taking credit for being lucky because of that miscarriage. And that for me as just an average American and not even an aspiring politician at the time, I just choked on that, and I said I couldn’t believe that that came out of her mouth.

“And that’s the kind of thing that we have not held her accountable for. So when you ask how are we going to win? You hold her accountable for those types of words and those types of actions. There’s a lot of them. Go watch the Katie Hill show. Go online and look at all of her interviews that she’s done. There’s a lot of stuff out there that she’s saying that doesn’t make sense.”

This writer is in agreement with how Stacey Lennox at the Resurgent views the battle:

“Pro-life people of faith and secular pro-life advocates generally agree that this fight needs to put compassion and support at the forefront. And those of faith should be relying on the unending grace of God to heal and reform the hearts of women who find themselves in circumstances where they see no way out in a culture that has laid open a door to regret and heartache.

“It is up to the movement to win hearts and minds. And we are. The ghastly “reproductive health” law passed in New York State and completely shocking comments by Governor Ralph Northam in Virginia already have people who identify as pro-choice re-evaluating exactly what that stance means. Lulled into “Safe, Legal and Rare” during the Clinton years, many did not realize how far the Left had gone. People are waking up.”

They won’t keep waking up if people like Tinderholt and Garcia become the voice of the Republican party on the topic. Lennox continues:

“We have science on our side. The trends are on the side of life. For those of us who know that life begins at conception because the combination of mom and dad’s DNA creates a unique human being, no amount of abortion is acceptable. For those of us who also believe that every child is made in God’s image, a woman’s decision to abort is heartbreaking.

“But stupid battles like the one Tinderholt wants to have will just cause us to lose ground in the war. Don’t give the enemy cannon fodder. Make them look in the mirror. Just like Abby Johnson has.”

Instead of attempting to hold Katie Hill “accountable” for her words (and it’s still not clear what exactly he would hold her “accountable” for), Garcia is the one who needs to be held accountable and who needs to take a long, hard look in the mirror.

At the very least, Garcia needs to apologize to Katie Hill for his lack of compassion and humanity. No one – man or woman – has the right to pass judgment on another person’s heart or purport to have a roadmap to a woman’s complex emotions after a miscarriage.

Garcia’s comments also demonstrate a lack of judgment, a lack of discernment, and flat-out lack of preparation for the office he seeks. How could he honestly watch those videos and watch Hill choke up and believe she feels lucky? Is that how he feels about all women who have a miscarriage, or are only some worthy of his empathy?

If that’s the GOP battle plan for a pro-life future, just wave the white flag right now. The rest of us will be attempting to show kindness and compassion to our fellow Americans and find common ground.

New York Gallery Owner Claims He Was Brutally Beaten by a Large Gang Over His Red MAGA Cap

[Screenshot from NBC New York, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kReAGUZ5HrE]

 

A man in New York City claims he was assaulted by a group of teenagers.

And geez…he was beaten to a pulp.

The alleged reason? His recently-purchased, spiffy red MAGA cap.

As reported by the Big Apple’s Fox 5, Jahangir “John” Turan had just gotten the hat from Trump Tower Tuesday.

Apparently, MAGA headgear’s worse than a 5th Grade “Kick Me” sign.

And man, did the kids pile on.



If John’s to be believed (apply that to every point in this story), he got decimated by not one, not two, but around fifteen thrashers

Right there on dadgum Canal Street.

They smashed the 42-year-old’s head into a scaffold.

The gang yelled “F*** Trump” and opened up a giant can of political intolerance and you-know-what.

John suffered a fractured cheek. He’s uncertain as to whether his vision will ever recover.

At a press conference where he asked New Yorkers to help find the maniacs who pummeled him, he lamented the idiocy and incivility of This Pres(id)ent Darkness, even as The Donald does it up right in Washington:

“I love President Trump. I think he’s doing a great job. It’s sad to get beat up for wearing this hat.  This is America.”

Sad indeed.

University of Florida Caves to Free Speech, Gives Young Americans for Freedom a Bag of Cash as Well as Cache

Westlake Legal Group dublin-2344423_1280-620x413 University of Florida Caves to Free Speech, Gives Young Americans for Freedom a Bag of Cash as Well as Cache Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

College used to be about free expression and debate — a time for young people to have their viewpoints challenged as they develop their thoughts about the world.

Fast-forward to free-speech zones, the underlying premise of which is — of course — “Free speech is impeded anywhere other than here.”

Bad move.

Another one:

Last year, the University of Florida re-categorized its Young Americans for Freedom chapter as a “non-budged” organization. The change meant YAF would have to petition the school for any event they wished to host, individually. It also stripped them of the ability to utilize student activity fees as payment for guest speakers.

Hence, a December lawsuit claiming the school had violated First and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

In lieu of a court order, on Wednesday, the University agreed to pay the student chapter $66,000. Furthermore, they’re changing school policy to to grant conservative groups access to financial resources.

YAF spokesperson Spencer Brown told the Daily Caller the institution of higher learning knew its goose was cooked:

“[The University of Florida] realized when YAF was taking them to court they’re weren’t going to win. It was very smart for them to recognize their policy was flawed the way it was set up, and that the conservative students in the YAF chapter were getting the rough end of the deal by being labeled a non-budget student organization. … We had the emails and facts on our side; we had the constitution on our side. It just wasn’t worth it for them to try to prove they were doing it for some other reason. There is never any reason for violating the Constitution.”

Spencer noted that conservative groups have been emboldened toward a push for equality by Trump’s March executive order tying college funding to the protection of free speech rights.

Former U of F chief Sarah Long told The New Guard the suit’s conclusion is a win for everyone attending the school:

“This settlement is a great victory for all students at the University of Florida.”

Why must all these fights be necessary — on public school property and social media (here)?

Why can’t everyone just agree, “Say what you want; this is America”?

That used to be the deal.

Let’s stick to the deal.

On Wednesday, the New York Times published a lengthy article written by three writers which offers a glimpse into the world of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The trio interviewed over a dozen of Epstein’s acquaintances to gather material for this story. And they paint a picture of an unusual man with some very unconventional interests.

In addition to his enormous brownstone in Manhattan, his Palm Beach mansion, his private island in the Caribbean, Epstein owns a 33,000-square-foot ranch located just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was here, he told friends, that he wanted women “to be impregnated with his sperm and to give birth to his babies” – 20 at a time.

According to the article, not only did Epstein like to surround himself with beautiful women, but with brilliant scientists. He actively cultvated friendships with many distinguished physicists, researchers, doctors and engineers. This group included:

Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann, who discovered the quark; the theoretical physicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking; the paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; Oliver Sacks, the neurologist and best-selling author; George M. Church, a molecular engineer who has worked to identify genes that could be altered to create superior humans; and the M.I.T. theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek, a Nobel laureate.

He was especially interested in transhumanism which is “the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. Critics have likened transhumanism to a modern-day version of eugenics, the discredited field of improving the human race through controlled breeding.”

Another of his acquaintances told the writers that Epstein was fascinated by cryonics which is “an unproven science in which people’s bodies are frozen to be brought back to life in the future. Epstein told this person that he wanted his head and penis to be frozen.”

The writers spoke to several of the scientists whom Epstein had been involved with. They were told that the “lure was Mr. Epstein’s money…The prospect of financing blinded them to the seriousness of his sexual transgressions.”

Here’s how this mad man entertained his scientist friends:

Scientists gathered at dinner parties at Mr. Epstein’s Manhattan mansion, where Dom Pérignon and expensive wines flowed freely, even though Mr. Epstein did not drink. He hosted buffet lunches at Harvard’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, which he had helped start with a $6.5 million donation.

Others flew to conferences sponsored by Mr. Epstein in the United States Virgin Islands and were feted on his private island there. Once, the scientists — including Mr. Hawking — crowded on board a submarine that Mr. Epstein had chartered.

Epstein had allegedly once told a NASA scientist about his idea for the baby ranch. This man said:

Mr. Epstein had based his idea for a baby ranch on accounts of the Repository for Germinal Choice, which was to be stocked with the sperm of Nobel laureates who wanted to strengthen the human gene pool. (Only one Nobel Prize winner has acknowledged contributing sperm to it. The repository discontinued operations in 1999.)

He said he had the impression that Mr. Epstein was using the dinner parties — where some guests were attractive women with impressive academic credentials — to screen candidates to bear Mr. Epstein’s children.

Such was the high life of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. His money bought him friends, women, the company of renowned scholars, and for a long time, his freedom. Let’s see if it helps him now.

A strange man with even stranger interests.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Goes to (Twitter) War with Glee. Uglier is the FakeNews Fisticuffs by America’s Favorite Magazine

Westlake Legal Group karate-2578819_1280-620x417 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Goes to (Twitter) War with Glee. Uglier is the FakeNews Fisticuffs by America’s Favorite Magazine Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

Do you know the greatness of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

Respectfully, I’m not referring to the enjoyable Sarah Michelle Gellar; I’m talking about the real Buffy — the original. That would be actress Kristy Swanson, star of the 1992 hit film which featured Donald Sutherland, Paul “Pee-Wee Herman” Reubens, Hillary Swank, and the great Luke Perry (here).

Long before 90-pound movie maidens regularly punched 200-pound men with their Kermit-the-Frog arms and sent ’em flying ‘cross the room, Buffy was a butt-kickin’ brawler — and in a much more believable way.

Kristy still packs a punch, and she recently used such to slay the notion of America being a joke.

Witness:

Someone posted the following video to Twitter…

Quite the concoction.

I watch that and think, “Aw, that girl wanted to make her mama’s dreams come true. So she leaned into the strike zone and took one for the team.”

51-year-old Glee actor Patrick Gallagher had a slightly different thought, and he tweeted it:

Cue Buffy, who treated Patrick like a fanged foe:

And it was on.

Patrick struck back with his own Jedi judo. Karate chop:

He also didn’t appreciate the efforts of a troll army:

Patrick threw his American citizenship amid a couple more jabs:

Back to Buff:

Oy. The ugliness of Twitter wars.

But here’s where it gets uglier. The real story is People Magazine’s coverage of the Tinseltown tiff.

What they wrote:

The initial controversy started when Trump fired off a string of racist tweets earlier this month to criticize progressive Democratic congresswomen and urge them to “go back” to the “crime-infested places from which they came,” despite the fact that they are American.

“A series of racist tweets.”

They are, of course, referring to this:

So for all who read People, the message is clear: It’s an objective fact that the President of the United States is an out-and-proud racist; this is something we all know and understand. This is America.

No qualifier. No evidence.

Will readers take People’s news as gospel? Surely some will assume the publication understands the definition of racism — the judgement of human beings solely according to the color of their skin. That concept is wholly absent from Trump’s above tweets, yet those who aren’t abreast of political goings-on will remain in the dark (see more here).

#NotGood.

Oh, well. While they’re hunkered down in darkness, they’d might as well enjoy a flick. I think I might, too. And no better time for an early 90’s classic. Check out the trailer below, and if you’ve got the time, soon enjoy some fantastic cinematic satisfaction. It slays.

Tulsi Gabbard Is Now a Russian Agent

The Democrat party and their media stenographers have one play in the playbook at this point and it’s Russia.

Anything they don’t like is Russia’s fault. Anyone they don’t like is a Russian agent. Do you eat hamburgers? You’re probably a Russian sympathizer according to The Washington Post. Everything is blamed on Russia, no matter how nonsensical the charge is.

We’ve seen this play out most recently with the #MoscowMitch hashtag and numerous media outlets rushing to telling us that Mitch McConnell is actually Putin’s puppet. It never stops and that means it’s not going to stop in the Democratic primaries either.

As I wrote this morning, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard absolutely wrecked Kamala Harris at the debate last night. If they haven’t seen it, here’s the clip again.

In response, Kamala Harris picked herself up off the floor and gave a riveting counter to the attacks on her record.

lol…just kidding…she had her boosters go out and accuse Gabbard of being a Russian agent.

Wait, you mean to tell me that Russia Today reported on the most explosive exchange at the debate? The same exchange that ever other media outlet on earth reported on? Well, this changes everything. I’ll also note that Stengal has no proof that Russia started the #KamalaHarrisDestroyed hashtag. It’s a baseless accusation that mirrors many other baseless claims about evil Russians controlling social media.

Harris’ campaign also got directly involved. Here’s her Press Sec. weighing in.

You see, it couldn’t just be that Kamala Harris a terrible politician who has no business running for President. No, the only reason Gabbard attacked her is because the Russians made her do it. Do you sense trend yet? Anytime anyone threatens mainstream Democratic thought, it’s always the Kremlin’s fault. Funny how that works.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who’s never met a conspiracy theory she didn’t love, chimed in as well.

That’s called having a debate, Joy. That’s what the purpose of that gathering last night was.

Here’s the reality. If Gabbard goes after Biden, she only helps Harris stay ahead of her. The way you claw your way into a race with many people is to go after those standing between you and the front runner. This isn’t new or revolutionary to most people. To Democrats, it’s proof of a Russian disinformation campaign to take down the unimpeachable Kamala Harris.

These people are crazy and this is a preview of the general election. Every single bit of positive news for Donald Trump is going to be blamed on the Russians. We are going to get countless evidence free think pieces about Russian trolls, bots, and social media campaigns. All of this will be spun to paint Trump as being helped by the Russians. You can also bet there will be some fresh conspiracy theories dealing with Russian contacts by the Trump campaign. Why? Because they have nothing to actually run on.
