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

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

Remember Amy McGrath? She burst onto the scene a few weeks ago as the new hot topic among Democrats. Running against Mitch McConnell is a tall order, but McGrath was going to be the new Beto O’Rourke, taking advantage of a fawning media and Hollywood pumping money into her coffers. NBC News coordinated a hit against McConnell with her campaign launch, allowing McGrath to announce to the glowing approval of Morning Joe.

That euphoria lasted about five minutes because she’s actually just an awful candidate. Just days later, McGrath would change her mind three times on whether she would have voted to confirm Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, Team Mitch started rolling out her old quotes claiming to be the most far left person in Kentucky. That went over about as well as you’d expect in a heavy majority red state.

Obviously, McGrath needed a boost so she did what all sensible people would do. She went on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, because nothing says “I’m a moderate challenger to McConnell” like sitting down with a woman who called Ivanka Trump a ****.

The interview itself was the least of her worries though. It was how and where the interview was conducted that really shows how tone deaf McGrath is.

(video is 23 seconds)

Yes, that’s Amy McGrath being interviewed in a barn, surrounded by fried chicken and parody whiskies while someone picks a banjo. Samantha Bee then sarcastically narrates that this is an “environment that made sure to respect her rich blue grass heritage.” There’s even a horse.

Rule number one in politics? Don’t insult the voters you are needing to bring to your side in order to win your race. Bee’s entire presentation is one giant mockery of Kentucky’s history and culture. For my part, I don’t mind laughing at stereotypes, but from a strategic standpoint, what the heck did I just watch? The path to unseat any incumbent is to position yourself more in line with the voters that your opponent. This accomplishes the opposite. It makes McGrath look like someone who cares more about glad handing with New York elites than the people in her own state.

Mitch McConnell has to be looking on and smiling at this point. He couldn’t have scripted a better start to his re-election effort.

Sorry Dems, Michelle Obama Said She’s Not Running and You’re Stuck With the B-Team

The Democrats are going into 2020 with what I can only describe as an entire roster of kids you’d pick last to be on your team. None of them are particularly fit to be a world leader and are about as outstanding as a cold sore.

That’s why some Democrats, including the likes of “documentarian” Michael Moore, have been letting their eyes wander to other people they believe would be a solid fit. Namely former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Moore said she’d be a great fit based on the fact that she looked really good on her book tour, is currently polled as the most admired woman in America behind Oprah Winfrey, and has been around when President stuff was happening.

That’s pretty much it. She’s not done anything that would merit her becoming the leader of the free world except that she’s well known and looked good on a book tour.

As nonsensical as that wish was, Obama seems to have some sense about her as she’s completely rejected the idea of running for office in any format according to The Hill:

“Just between us, and the readers of this magazine — there’s zero chance,” Obama said in an interview with The National, Amtrak’s travel and culture magazine, that was published Friday.

“There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives. But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me.”

Like I said when this suggestion was first made by Moore, this reveals how Democrats really feel about their 2020 candidates. It’s not good that the left is so desperate for something else that they’re seeking someone from the outside.

To be honest, I can’t blame them. The only person among the 2020 crop of Democrats that remotely strikes my interest is Tulsi Gabbard, but even she falls short thanks to her pro-abortion stance among other things.
