Vox Writer: Male Presidential Candidates Should Show #Wokeness for Female Candidates by Stepping Aside

Ladies and gents, I am here to report to you some good news: Chivalry in politics is not dead just yet!

There has been a lotta lotta grumbling in Democratic circles over the fact that, in spite of the diversity of their presidential candidate field (young candidates, female candidates, black candidates, gay candidates, Asian-American candidates), the old white guys have consistently been polling at the top of the pack.

Because of this “concern”, some of the white guys in the race have taken to admitting to their “privilege” in order to show females and persons of color that they are down with the wokeness.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) has even vowed to pick a female vice presidential candidate if he wins the nomination because he, you know, respects women so much.

But for Vox writer Matthew Yglesias, none of these gestures are enough. Male candidates for president must do one thing and one thing only to prove their commitment to treating women as equals on the playing field:

Drop out of the race and let a woman win.

It’s true. That’s really his suggestion:

I mean, nothing says “I’m down with viewing a woman as my equal” like urging her male opponents to step aside so she can get ahead, right?

Voxsplaining Social Media Politics North Carolina Media Matt Yglesias kamala harris journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

And why should the men do this for the lady candidates? Because Democrats need more wins and stuff:

I should note for the record that Yglesias isn’t the first Democrat to make this suggestion. Democratic strategist Alexis Grenell told CNN‘s giggling Brooke Baldwin last month that the guys just needed to go away and let the women battle this one out:

GRENELL: I’m over it. I’m over them all. In the point is, what they can really be doing is putting their resources behind these women. With Bernie for instance — again, who I voted for proudly and I think had made really important moves in 2016. I don’t understand why he was running now when Elizabeth Warren, who’s his ideological twin, could really benefit from his support, his money, his movements.

Shorter: Bernie, would you do the socialistic thing share your campaign wealth with Liz Warren?

It’s comical, really, and just goes to show the folly of the Democratic party’s obsession with identity politics.

For that matter, I think the gay community maybe should be offended by Yglesias’s and Grenell’s suggestions about men dropping out of the race to make way for the women. Why isn’t everyone suggesting all other candidates forfeit the race in order to let Mayor Pete Buttigieg win*?

Amirite?

Joe Biden Exploited Charlottesville Murder in His Announcement Video, Didn’t Tell the Family First

Westlake Legal Group Biden-TH-620x317 Joe Biden Exploited Charlottesville Murder in His Announcement Video, Didn’t Tell the Family First white supremacy susan bro Politics murder Joe Biden Heather Heyer Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats charlottesville

Joe Biden announced his entry into the 2020 Democratic primary early yesterday morning with a video heavily referencing the events in Charlottesville that happened in 2017. Specifically, the death of a young women named Heather Heyer, who was killed by a white supremacist coward attending the “United the Right” rally put on by Richard Spencer. He then sought to use those events as a cudgel against Donald Trump as part of the roll out of his candidacy.

That roll out has been rocky, to say the least.

It’s about to get rockier as The Daily Beast is reporting that Biden made that video without the consent of the deceased family.

Joe Biden did not tell Susan Bro, Heather Heyer’s mother, that he would be invoking her daughter’s murder in Charlottesville in August 2017 in his presidential campaign launch video focusing on “the battle for the soul” of America.

“But I wasn’t surprised,” Bro, co-founder of the Heather Heyer Foundation set up in her daughter’s memory, told The Daily Beast. “Most people do that sort of thing. They capitalize on whatever situation is handy. He didn’t reach out to me, and didn’t mention her by name specifically, and he probably knew we don’t endorse candidates.”

How is he so bad at this? How do you not let the family know you are going to invoke their daughter?

There are some things that should be off limits. This is one of those things. A woman died because of the evil actions of a single man. Trying to twist that into a campaign slogan about this being a “battle for the soul of nation” so Biden can paint himself as a savior is gutter trash politics. I’m not sure which of his new advisors came up with this idea, but they should probably be fired.

Look, if Biden wants to go after Trump, go after him. We’ll see how that works out for him. But exploiting the death of a young woman and trying to equate the President with white supremacy in order to score political points is just gross. There are a million other, legitimate ways to attack Trump. Politicizing tragedy isn’t one of them.

Biden’s Social Media Team Already Won the “Biggest Fail” Award for 2020

On the day that former Vice President Joe Biden announced his third run for the presidency, his social media team scored a huge win.

A huge win… for the biggest blooper of the 2020 cycle, and though 2016 taught us that anything is possible, it’s doubtful that a campaign social media team can top this one.

Using a somewhat dated social media technique, the team posted a series of photos to Biden’s Instagram page that, when viewed as a gallery, would show the entire logo.

Catchy, right?

One (at least) small problem.

In addition to the creepy hand positioning, the placement of the “N” over the photo of Barack Obama is unfortunate, to say the least.

Making the post even more cringeworthy is the fact that Biden cited “Charlottesville” and “Klansmen, white supremacists” as his reason for running.

It didn’t take long for commenters on Instagram and Twitter to pounce on the faux pas.

Climate Change Activists Glue Themselves Together in London Because Reasons

Westlake Legal Group climate-change-activists-glue-themselves-together-in-london-because-reasons Climate Change Activists Glue Themselves Together in London Because Reasons United Kingdom Politics London Stock Exchange Ineffective Glue Global Warming Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Crazy Climate Change

Westlake Legal Group D4-k9c0XsAAhyj5-620x465 Climate Change Activists Glue Themselves Together in London Because Reasons United Kingdom Politics London Stock Exchange Ineffective Glue Global Warming Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Crazy Climate Change

Apparently, this is a common thing in the U.K.

I posted a few weeks ago about a climate change activist gluing herself to the ground in front of an oil company building. Not to be outdone, members of a group called “Extinction Rebellion” decided to glue themselves together in front of the London Stock Exchange because reasons.

Why the stock exchange?

Because these nutjobs believe that they must destroy the economy in order to bend the government to their unrealistic, nonsensical demands over global warming. That’s not me exaggerating for effect. That’s actually their plan.

Eventually, police showed up and arrested the protestors.

If you look closely at the video of the arrests, you can see the first woman’s hand cut open from where she had to be ripped apart from the other protestors. That’s gotta hurt.

Look, I guess I can respect these people’s passion, even though I think they are misguided at best and completely ill informed at worst, but come on. Gluing yourself together to block the entrance to the stock exchange? How does that result anything but sores and jail time? It’s not like the stock exchange is even a monolithic being to bring pressure upon. It’s thousands of different companies based in other places.

This kind of silliness is what happens in an age of increasing secularism. People are so desperate for meaning that they’ll latch onto absolutely anything to champion, no matter how nonsensical and ineffective their actions are. Even if global warming were a coming catastrophe, it’s an impossibility that humans could somehow reverse it with behavioral changes. Too many people would die from the reduction in emissions, especially in poorer countries. The world is too vast and governments are too diverse to organize such an effort anyway.

While I don’t subscribe to their doomsday theories, if I did, here’s my advice. Rather than protests and fun with glue, these people should be working toward technological advances that allow future adaptation. That’s the only realistic answer to the problem they swear is so imminently destructive.

Instead, they want to destroy the economy, negating the ability to produce those technological advances. Makes sense.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants reparations. She said so (here).

And people loved it.

White dude Beto O’Rourke — who inherited $5 million and married into $500 million — is railing against white privilege (here).

So how does Joe Biden fare in the Woke, anti-white, pro-non-white department (here)?

Well, it ain’t lookin’ good.

In fact, there’s a surfaced newspaper clipping of Cozy Joe sayin’ he ain’t payin’ for the deeds of some dudes 300 years ago.

In fact, he’ll “be damned.”

Yes — damned!

The Washington Post noted the 70’s interview in March, and on Thursday, the quote was even covered by Rolling Stone.

So how does that affect his bid for the Oval Office?

Given the contemporary climate of the Democratic Party, it can’t help.

This isn’t the only recent dig-up for Joltin’ Joe: Earlier in the week, he was outed for previously labeling homosexual federal employees “security risks” (here).

And this is his problem: a generational one. Joe Biden was born in 1942, and he’s vying for the top spot within a political party that’s breaking its neck to be so 2019. The Left’s been knocking down monuments and revising history. It’s denounced the founding fathers and tried to remove John Wayne from an airport. Over the decades, surely Biden has said and done things that’d be DNC deal-breakers in the modern era.

And rest assured the man has competitors who’ll be more than happy to float those outdated ideas.

He made it through elections as VP. But President is a whole other ballgame.

Stay tuned.

For now, here’s this:

Donald Trump Screwed Kim Jong Un To Get Otto Warmbier Returned and the Left and CNN Are Still Outraged

When President Trump came into office, North Korea was holding a college student named Otto Warmbier. Trump wanted him released and finally, probably because he was dying and North Korea didn’t want that to happen while they held him, North Korea agreed. This is from the Washington Post today:

North Korean officials asked the doctor to write a report about his findings. “It was my impression that if I did not give them a document that I could sign off on, that would cause problems,” Flueckiger said in an interview…
“Would I have lied to get him out of there? Maybe I would have,” he said. “But I didn’t have to answer that question.”

Yun, however, was faced with a more difficult predicament.

The North Korean officials handed him a bill for $2 million, insisting he sign an agreement to pay it before they would allow him to take Warmbier home, according to the two people familiar with the situation.

Yun called then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and told him about the bill. Tillerson called Trump. They instructed their envoy to sign the piece of paper agreeing that the $2 million would be paid, the two people said.

Warmbier was repatriated and died six days later.

This is the reaction.

“Wow.” Really? “Wow.” Can you imagine the outrage when the inevitable leak occurred that Trump was offered Warmbier’s release for less money than the US government spends in about 15 seconds and he refused?

What was that? About Trump and his debts?

The Trump administration has not paid this bill, a third source familiar with the matter told CNN Thursday, adding that North Korea did not raise the issue as it sought to begin easing the tensions with the US in 2018 nor when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo negotiated the release of three Americans that same year, the source said.

“We made clear that they were never going to get anything” when the negotiating occurred for the release of the 3 Americans, the source added.

Earlier this month, at an event attended by Otto Warmbier’s family, Pompeo dismissed the idea of the US paying ransom for hostages.

“Please remember that any money to a terrorist or terrorist regime gives money so that they can seize more of our people,” he said. “We cannot accept that risk. You wouldn’t ask that of us.”

So the actual story is that Trump told his envoy, and we can thank the Almighty that it wasn’t the mouthbreathing Jim Sciutto, to do what he had to do to get Warmbier home. They signed a bill for $2 million and promptly ignored it.

Is America’s favorite rich uncle losin’ his appeal among the most woke? Has his New York cowfart-fightin’ niece taken his place as the nation’s best-loved socialist?

Could be.

On Wednesday night, Bern took the stage at Houston’s She the People conference. The “presidential forum” featured the Sandman, Pocahotmess Liz Warren (here), and abortion-up-to-birth proponent Kamala Harris, and others.

Bernie was asked how he’d fight that most dangerous of human scourges — the rise of evil white people:

“What do you believe is the federal government’s role to fight against the rise of white nationalism and white terrorist acts, and how do you plan to lead on that in your first year as president?”

After a castigation of ‘demagogue’ Donald Trump, Bern broke into talk of a hiked minimum wage, more robust (free?) healthcare, and a less constrictive border.

Perhaps that was remedial Woke; this crowd was in the advanced class. How’s the whitest man in America gonna fight the whitest threat in America?

The audience served up boos and hisses:

Host Joy “the Mueller report is a cover-up” Reid went back to demoguer– I mean, asking about fighting whites.

Bernie latched on to that safest of references: Martin Luther King.

“Oh, right. Absolutely. I know I date myself a little bit here, but I actually was at the march on Washington with Dr. [Martin Luther] King back in 1963.”

But doggone it — it was a tough crowd. They rejected his offering like God’s response to a vegetable medley served by Cain.

The guy was heckled like Woody Allen making his 1935 Munich debut.

Bernie did hit a few balls, though. He was asked by an audience member what he’d do for black women, specifically.

Sanders hit a veritable cornucopia of wokeness: He called Trump “the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country,” downed the Commander-in-Chief’s “racism and his sexism and his homophobia,” and trumpeted “economic justice, social justice, racial justice, and environmental justice.”

Dang it, man — that’s a lot of justice.

Nicely done.

Bern has a lot of competition for the 2020 seat of all seats; anti-white-privilege white guy Beto O’Rourke — who inherited (and kept) $5 million and whose father-in-law is worth $500 million — is gonna be cruisin’ for the woke vote as much as anyone. And that dude rides a skateboard. Let’s see Uncle B top that. He’s probably a bit brittle to do a kickflip backside tailslide. Maybe he should get some Rollerblades and just see what’s what. First goal: the hockeystop.

‘Til then, the battle rages on.

Screengrab from https://twitter.com/JHall7news/status/1121532358480543744

For two years leftwing judges in both state and federal courts have carried out a highly partisan campaign of lawfare to obstruct and thwart completely legal policy choices made by the Trump administration. The flashpoint in the subversion of the law has been immigration. Most judges appointed by Obama to the federal bench or who occupy state court positions in deep blue states are openly hostile to the idea of enforcing immigration laws or allowing the president the ability to exercise his legal authority. It all started out fairly early with the so-called “travel ban.” This restriction on the ability of persons from a half-dozen failed states and Iran who had no connection to the US to enter the country was dishonestly portrayed as a “Muslim ban” and the subject of a nationwide injunction by a partisan judge in the Ninth Circuit. Since then every step taken by the administration to tighten security at the border has been met with a specious legal challenge and an equally specious decision.

While this may be disreputable, it is also what Democrats do when you let them have power. Sometimes the hubris of wearing a black robe in a liberal ghetto leads to far left judges taking actions that may prove painful. Such is the case of Massachusetts judge Shelley Richmond Joseph.

On March 30, 2018, Newton Police arrested and charged an illegal, twice deported alien, named Jose Medina-Perez for being a fugitive from justice and for narcotics possession. On his second deportation, Medina-Perez had been issued an order prohibiting him from entering the US again for 20 years. The arrest popped on ICE’s radar and they issued a Federal Immigration Detainer and Warrant of Removal to the Newton police.

On April 2, 2018, Newton Police transferred custody of the defendant to Newton District Court. Shelley Richmond Joseph drew the case and a guy named Wesley MacGregor was appointed trial court officer–from reading the description of the job this seems to be the same as the “bailiff” in American courts, but Massachusetts…

At this point it might be useful to admit that Joseph is a former defense attorney, and Newton is, naturally, a sanctuary city.

At 9:30 a.m. on April 2, 2018, the day of Medina-Perez’s court appearance, ICE sent a plainclothes agent to the courthouse to take custody of the illegal after bail was granted. There was nothing surreptitious involved. The agent announced his presence to the trial court officer and the judge and the prosecutor and the defense attorney. Then strange things started to happen.The court clerk, at the judge’s orders, instructed the ICE agent to leave the courtroom and wait outside. Then things took an unexpected turn.

At 2:48 p.m. the case was called and the proceedings were captured on the courtroom’s audio recorder, as prescribed under the rules for all State District Courts. The audio recording captured Joseph, the defense attorney and the ADA speaking at side bar about the defendant and the ICE detainer. Joseph then allegedly ordered the courtroom clerk to “go off the record for a moment.” For the next 52 seconds, the courtroom audio recorder was turned off, in violation of the District Court rules. At 2:51 p.m., the recorder was turned back on, and Joseph indicated her intent to release the defendant.

Medina-Perez was picked up in a few weeks and it was discovered that he was wanted for drunk driving in Pennsylvania where an ICE detainer had also been issued. Now, get this, he’s out on bail awaiting a deportation hearing.

The defense attorney asked to speak with his client downstairs. The judge okayed it but then the clerk reminded her that an ICE agent was waiting outside. The judge allowed MacGregor to take the defendant through here chambers from there they went downstairs and MacGregor used his security access card to let Medina-Perez out of the building.

I suppose that all involved had a good joke at the expense of the ICE agent, ICE in general, and the Godless Trump who would dare to deport a poor, downtrodden illegal.

The US Attorney for Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, seems to be a man without an great sense of humor. The case was referred to a grand jury and today both Joseph and MacGregor were indicted.

The perjury is charge is only against MacGregor who told the grand jury that he didn’t know there was an ICE agent in the courthouse despite the tape of him being told that.

I hate to rejoice in anyone’s misfortune BUT the sight of this lawless judge leaving the courthouse in tears could run on a continuous loop and I’d be very happy.

For the time being, Joseph is suspended without pay and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is asking for her removal from the bench.

This needs to happen each time a judge crosses the line and tries to throw their weight around. The only way the judiciary is going to be forced back into the box constructed for it by the Constitution is by making them feel the same pain they impose on the rest of us.

Joe Biden Called Domestic Terrorist Group Antifa “Courageous” In His 2020 Announcement

As my colleague Sister Toldja covered earlier, former VP Joe Biden has now officially entered into the 2020 presidential race, and is now competing for the Democratic nomination against such heavy hitters as that mayor with the weird last name, and that Irish guy with the Hispanic nickname that couldn’t beat Ted Cruz despite the left pouring its collective hopes, dreams, and cash into him.

To kick off his campaign, Biden released an admittedly grabbing announcement video. Summed up, the video amounts to “Trump is a racist and his reaction to the Charlottesville, Va. protest proves it.”

Biden tells the story of the Charlottesville, ending with the death of one woman who was killed after one of the white supremacists drove his vehicle into a crowd. Biden describes the white supremacists in very story-telling terms with “crazed faces, illuminated by torches, veins bulging and baring the fangs of racism.”

Poetic.

However, one line in the video really grabs the attention of anyone who knows better, however. It happened right after he describes the white supremacists and what they were chanting.

“They were met by a courageous group of Americans and a violent clash ensued,” said Biden.

That’s about all Biden says about the opposition to the white supremacists, and for a good reason. The “courageous Americans” that showed up to oppose the white supremacists were Antifa, who are just as bad, if not worse, than the tiki torch-wielding bad guys who showed up that night.

To give you a quick reminder of who Antifa is, their name is short for “anti-fascist.” The problem is that Antifa is about as fascist as you can get. If you disagree with them in any way, or they stand opposed to you, they won’t just get angry and protest you. They will physically assault you, attempt to intimidate you or silence you in some way.

To give you some examples, Antifa showed up to the home of Tucker Carlson where they attempted to gain access to his home. Carlson’s wife and children were forced to hide in the pantry as Antifa stood outside his home threatening Carlson’s safety.

Antifa recently attacked an elderly man for not obeying them in Portland, while police stood by and let it happen.

They have called for the assassination of Trump, and Steven Crowder went undercover and caused Antifa members to expose the fact that they were going to use deadly weapons against their opposition.

To be clear, they are labeled domestic terrorists by U.S. security agencies, and they live up to the classification.

This is who former VP and current 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden is calling “courageous.”

For reasons that quite escape me, the cause célèbre on the progressive wing of the otherwise socialist Democrat party is allowing incarcerated felons to vote. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris have all endorsed the idea, though Harris sobered up long enough to walk back her remarks. Sanders, as far as I know, is still sticking by his view that the Boston Marathon bomber should be allowed to vote for Sanders for president. The chief of staff for Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the currently unindicted felon Saikat Chakrabarti, equated the right of incarcerated felons to vote with the exercise of Second Amendment rights.

The subject of this political movement came up on Chris Cuomo’s show on CNN.

CUOMO: Top 2020 Democratic hopefuls have been following Bernie Sanders’ lead on many progressive policy stances. But last night, Senator Sanders said that people in prison, even terrorists like the Boston bomber, have the right to vote while they’re in prison. D-Lemon, what’s your take?

LEMON: I was stunned, as you could see. You could see on our faces and the responses. Listen, I’m glad we asked the question, I’m glad you asked the question first to Bernie and then we talked to the other candidates, the subsequent candidates who came on. It’s interesting. I think you were right that it’s going to be a campaign for those who said either “yes, they should be able to vote, even the most awful people among us, or we should have a conversation about it.” I think it’s going to be an issue here.

CUOMO: Senator Kamala Harris said that she has now revised her opinion and saying those who are in prison, “no, they don’t get to vote.”

LEMON: No. Well, last night that’s not what she said. But listen, she can revise her position and change her mind or maybe she just didn’t get it out last night. But I think that is going to be an issue. And I think it’s an interesting subject or question to debate. But I think most people in America feel like once you paid your debt to society, maybe you should have the opportunity to go out and vote, and at least exercise your constitutional rights. But if you’re in prison, if you have committed a crime, like the Boston Marathon bombings, or if you assaulted or abused a child, I don’t think most Americans would want people like that to vote.

CUOMO: You know what it frames? It frames the proposition for voters as these people are way out there in the Democratic party. Whoa, have they gone far left.

Take a moment and contemplate this. On a network that is reflexively far left and an arm of the Democrat party, two of the more leftwing personalities agree that letting people vote in prison is nuts.

Cuomo hints at the danger this spells for the Democrats in 2020. If this is discussed enough, the Democrat nominee, no matter who they are, is going to be saddled with the baggage of this postion by the force of millions of dollars in attack ads.
