Video: Compare and Contrast the Media’s Treatment of Jan Brewer and Obama vs Treatment of Nancy Pelosi and Trump

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announces that she will not seek a third term and will retire at the end of her current term, Wednesday, March 12, 2014, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York)

Last week, I wrote about how former Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) complained on social media about the rough treatment the mainstream media gave her after her famous “pointing at Obama” incident in 2012 in contrast to their fangirling over a similar image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump, which was shared on Twitter by Trump on Wednesday.

To recap, after the President posted the picture and captioned it “Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!”, Pelosi’s staff countered by making the picture he tweeted the header image on her Twitter page:

The media swooned over the photo. As Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro noted at the time, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Lester Holt were among the many who were in awe of the supposed symbolism of the image.

CNN’s Dana Bash was another who couldn’t help but gush over the photo, and how Pelosi and her staff “owned” the moment where she “[stood up] … at a table of all men” against Trump.

Brewer weighed in on Twitter on Thursday, noting the backlash she received when she stood up to Obama versus how Pelosi was treated like a queen over her finger-pointing at Trump:

I included examples in my post which showed that Brewer was spot-on in her characterization of the media’s hypocrisy.

But seeing their duplicity in living color shines an even brighter, starker light on the two faced nature of the mainstream media when it comes to women in politics confronting men who are more powerful than them.

The Free Beacon did a must-watch video mashup last Friday that included numerous examples of how the MSM breathlessly reported on Pelosi “standing up to Trump” versus what they said about Brewer’s 2012 confrontation with President Obama.

There’s no question that liberal media bias exists. I’ve written about it for over 16 years, but even I was taken aback at just how blatant the double standards were in this case after I watched the video:

Wow. And the MSM still wonders why we don’t trust them to cover the issues fairly?

Must-See Tweets Displaying Chile’s Violent Response to Protesters Shows Us Why Gun Control Is a Bad Idea

Westlake Legal Group ff260d6b-4131-4295-9611-d5489b7c6ddd@news.ap_.org_ Must-See Tweets Displaying Chile’s Violent Response to Protesters Shows Us Why Gun Control Is a Bad Idea second amendment police brutality Guns gun rights gun control Front Page Stories firearms democrats Chile America 2A

Gun control advocates often laugh at people who like to say they keep their guns around because it prevents authoritarians in the government from getting out of control.

As they laugh, we see how the police dominate their unarmed citizenry with brutal force and cruel tactics. We’ve watched as it happened in China, Venezuela, North Korea, and now Hong Kong and Chile.

In Chile, what started as a protest about rising metro faires has blossomed into a full-on riot thanks to rising costs of living, with police reacting with overt violence. One Twitter user from Chile going by “pinkitsvne,” has tweeted out images and videos showing just how bad it has gotten.

One thing she noted, in particular, was how the government was manhandling protesters and rioters thanks to Chile being a “disarmed country.”

“THIS IS CHILE RIGHT NOW,” she tweeted. “The government set the military on the streets just because people were demanding rights. Salaries aren’t enough. WE ARE A DISARMED COUNTRY. They fight us with guns and we have bare hands.
Media is censoring this, please RT. MAKE THE WORLD SEE.”

The Twitter user posted other images and videos, including a GIF of police destroying public property and blaming protesters for the act.

One image, in particular, stands out, however. An unarmed older man can be seen holding his hand up to a Chilean officer who is pointing a gun directly at him. Included is a video of police firing guns at unseen protesters.

“This image makes me so so sad honestly. It’s literally representing what’s happening, a gun pointed at us when we just want to be heard,” tweeted pinkitsvne.

It’s possible that these shotguns contain beanbag rounds; they have has not been confirmed as having been shells that are deadly. Regardless, you can see how the police abuse their authority by shooting teargas into the property of protesters and even using batons to beat a child.

Those laughing at American people who want to keep their Second Amendment rights alive and well are the laughable ones. We see a constant stream of examples of what happens when a government doesn’t have the threat of violence looming against them, with Chile just being the latest.

Gun rights advocates are watching and learning. They’re paying attention to historical patterns that show that an unarmed populace is a conquered one. It’s only a matter of time before it overtly shows.

When Democrats tell us we need to give up our guns and America refuses, what we see in Chile is what it’s refusing.

Mitt Romney Is Chock Full of Virtue and He’s the First Guy Who’d Admit It if You’d Let Him

Westlake Legal Group Romney-FB-620x370 Mitt Romney Is Chock Full of Virtue and He’s the First Guy Who’d Admit It if You’d Let Him virtue signaling utah republicans Politics Mitt Romney Mike Allen Front Page Stories Featured Story Elizabeth Warren elections douchebaggery donald trump axios on hbo Allow Media Exception 2020 campaign

On Sunday, Mitt Romney was on the de rigueur “pivot to video” program, Axios on HBO. In an interview with Mike Allen, Romney was asked about why GOP senators and congressmen were closing ranks behind President Trump despite the efforts of the New York Times, Washington Post, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, MSNBC, CNN, etc, etc. In particular, he addressed the phenomenon that infuriates the media which is that GOP politicians might criticize Trump off the record but no one will go on the record doing so.

 

  • “There’s no upside in going on out and attacking the leader of your party, ’cause that’s just gonna let someone come in and primary you on the right. So people want to hang onto their job.”
  • “But there’s another reason, which is more elevated. And that is people … genuinely believe, as I do, that conservative principles are better for our country and for the working people of our country than liberal principles and that if Elizabeth Warren were to become president, for instance, or if we were to lose the Senate, that it would not be good for the American people.”
  • “And they don’t want to do something which makes it more likely for Elizabeth Warren to become president or for us to lose the Senate. So they don’t want to go out and criticize the leader of our party because they feel that might have the consequence of hurting our country longer term.”

This is the kind of self-serving smarminess that has always infuriated me about Romney. He takes a completely justifiable impulse and tries to make it sound dirty and uses it to rationalize his own behavior and, in the process, signal that he’s not one of those gawdawful tribal Republicans. He’s the New Republican Man who can always find good in his political enemies and whose allies have an infinite number of motes in their eyes that he must remove using his Vise Grips.

The fact is that Elizabeth Warren is the most likely candidate. The Clinton wing of the Democrat part has lined up behind her and they are letting QuidProJoe twist in the howling gale of his own corruption. Warren is only getting manhandled by Tulsi Gabbard and because of that Gabbard has now become a target of the Clinton smear machine. Biden tried to attack Warren but, in the process, managed to make Warren look sympathetic and to highlight his own record of claiming credit for things he had little to do with.

READ: Watch As Joe Biden Loses His Crap And Yells At Elizabeth Warren While Trying To Take Credit For Creating An Illegal Agency

If you really feel that a Warren presidency, or worse yet, a Warren presidency accompanied by Democrat control of the Senate, would be a calamity for the nation and for its people, then only a moron or a pompous, self-righteous ass, or a staff writer a The Bulwark or The Dispatch would do anything to enable one or the other of those things to happen. This is not new. The idea that a movement cannot succeed if it spends time bickering among itself is quite old:

24If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand; that is the end of him.27But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house.

So what’s the big insight here?

The clear implication of Romney’s interview is that he’s not an outlier in criticizing Trump (probably true), but he, alone, is a man possessed of such courage and such amazing principles that he’d rather lose than besmirch those sacred principles and to show you just how amazingly courageous and principled he is, he’s willing to go on a center-left television program and announce them.

We so dodged the bullet in 2008 and 2012.

Why Is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Picking On Pete Buttigieg?

STOP PICKING ON ME A.O.C.

(AP Photo/John Minchillo)

Let’s just get something straight here right off the bat.

This article about a spat between two progressives is not going to SINK to the level of how progressive democrats act in regards to how they treat conservatives. We are not going to assume here for ONE MOMENT that just because of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez picking on Pete Buttigieg with tweets, that she hates white men, white men who are straight or gay. Even white men who put ketchup on their hot dogs or don’t like 250 dollar haircuts.

We are not going there.

Pete Buttigieg on Fox News Sunday responded to criticism from A.O.C. about fundraising and what would be needed to be done for the Democratic nominee to take on and win against Donald Trump.

He actually sounds like he is taking this really seriously here.

From Fox News

The far-left congresswoman accused Buttigieg of protecting a system of “big money politics” instead of trying to make it a thing of the past, touting the merits of “small-dollar grassroots campaigns,” which she said were more successful than his. Buttigieg said he’s quite familiar with grassroots campaigning, but said it will take more than that for Democrats to succeed in 2020.

“Well, first of all, you don’t go from mayor of South Bend to a competitive presidential candidate without knowing a thing or two about grassroots campaigning,” Buttigieg told “Fox News Sunday” in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, posted last week. “My campaign is fueled by the contributions of almost 600,000 individual donors and most of those are small contributions.”

Ocasio-Cortez posted her remark while retweeting a quote from Buttigieg that criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s plan to stay away from large donations. Buttigieg had said, “We’re not going to beat Trump with pocket change.” Ocasio-Cortez described that comment as insulting to small donors, but Buttigieg explained his stance on Sunday.

He is taking this seriously!!!!

A.O.C. at the end of the day is a political cheap shot artist with feelings. That works great for twitter and her lil district in New York and of course the Instagram people eat that up but Pete has it nailed down here.

The way the system is set up now you need to bring in corporate cash by the bundles. This silly notion that Warren and Bernie are running on is great for small rallies and a fabulous talking point but not for a serious run for the Presidency.

That A.O.C. even took issue with the “pocket change” comment shows that she is way in overhead here. This is another reason why Nancy Pelosi will probably soon send her to the gulag while the adults in the Democratic caucus try to figure out the impeachment mess they have gotten themselves into.

The radical feelings over facts crowd of the Democratic party’s base right now are much more aligned with the Bernie factions than the more moderate faction like the Mayor. Buttigieg, it sounds like is much more in tune with how to win an election nationally with his statements here which is A.O.C. and the other kids lashed out.

Not because he is gay or white but because he is right.

At least on this issue.

Someone give Alexandria a gift certificate for another 250 dollar hair cut. Hopefully, that will keep her from taking shots for a while at Mayor Pete.

Pete Buttigieg Demonstrates His Moral Cowardice By Supporting Hillary Clinton’s Lies About Tulsi Gabbard

Pete Buttigieg by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

In a political era that is becoming more and more like a “hold my beer” joke in regards to outrageous statements, the bar was set high by Hillary Clinton last week when she accused failed 2016 Green Party candidate Jill Stein of being a Russian asset, and for good measure she tossed in Tulsi Gabbard:

They’re also going to do third party again. And I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary. And they’re grooming her to be the third party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and – that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she is also a Russian asset — yeah, she’s a Russian asset! I mean totally

I think it is safe to say that were this anything more than Hillary Clinton blaming other people for her own epic incompetence in 2016, that the Mueller investigation, which was empowered to investigate Russian campaign meddling, would have uncovered tracks of the support for the Stein campaign–unless, of course, President Trump has been right all along and it was simply part of a scheme to remove him from office without any basis is truth. But Clinton’s fluffers dutifully jumped on the bandwagon:

What is interesting is that, as far as I can tell, exactly two Democrat candidates have come to Gabbard’s defense and both of those have done so rather tepidly.

What should have been said was that either Clinton was mentally debilitated, batsh** crazy, or day drinking yet again. But the fear of the Clinton machine is too much for Democrats to stand up to even when confronted point-blank with this outrageous allegation. Such was the case when Chuck Todd confronted “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg on Meet the Press (h/t to Byron York for the transcript):

Buttigieg’s supporters are claiming that his last sentence, that he wasn’t “comfortable” with the accusation is about as weak as one can get. In fact, reading his whole response, he could just as easily have meant that he wasn’t comfortable with a situation in which Russia was “grooming” a Democrat candidate.

This is not one of those occasions when an opponent is in trouble and you just punt on your opinion on the issue. This is a case where a major (shame on us) US political figure has accused a Democrat candidate, who just happens to be both an officer in the Army National Guard and a congresswoman, of being a agent of Russia. Mere decency requires that the allegation against both Gabbard and Stein, but in particular against Gabbard,  to be denounced as utterly whacko. And yet, he couldn’t bring himself to break with the Clinton machine even on an issue with a moral bright line such as this.

Better Luck Next Time: Once Again, a Man Dominates at the Women’s World Cycling Championships

Sorry girls, but the best woman is a man.

At least, in the world of cycling.

So has established the 2019 Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, England.

In the 35-39 age group, Rachel McKinnon mopped the floor with chicks.

In fact, in the qualifying event, he set a world record. For women.

And it wasn’t the record of “woman with the most penises.”

Rather, he pedaled faster.

In an interview with Sky News, Rachel explained that it’d be unfair to keep him out:

“So, if we want to say, that I believe you’re a woman for all of society, except for this massive central part that is sport, then that’s not fair.”

In fact, “real champions” agree:

“I have yet to meet a real champion who has a problem with trans women. Real champions want stronger competition,” McKinnon wrote. “If you win because bigotry got your competition banned…you’re a loser.”

So don’t be a loser. Or ignorant:

“The thing is, the people who oppose trans women’s full and equal rights think that the ‘facts’ are on their side. This is why they always come back to ‘common sense.’ That’s not an argument, loves. It’s the last refuge of the ignorant. It means you’ve already lost, bad.”

Rachel — a philosophy professor at the College of Charleston — won last year, too.

The guy has a lot to say.

A Forced Baptism/Sexual Assault and a Cavity Search Comprise the Worst Non-Lethal Police Conduct You’re Likely to Find – by the Same Officer

Westlake Legal Group daniel-wilkey-bobby-brewer-SCREENSHOT-620x329 A Forced Baptism/Sexual Assault and a Cavity Search Comprise the Worst Non-Lethal Police Conduct You’re Likely to Find – by the Same Officer Uncategorized Tennessee law enforcement law jacob goforth hamilton county Front Page Stories Featured Story daniel wilkey crime Chattanooga bobby brewer Allow Media Exception

If you’re in Chattanooga, Tennessee and Officer Daniel Wilkey tries to pull you over, you might just wanna keep on truckin’.

He may’ve violated a constitutional right or 12, and you don’t wanna be Lucky 13.

According to a recently-filed lawsuit, Daniel engaged in some mighty squirrelly behavior with Sandle Riley.

Here goes the allegation:

Sometime between 10 and 11 p.m. on July 6th, Daniel followed Shandle from a gas station to her friend’s house, at which point he claimed she was hiding meth.

Therefore, he gave her a full-body patdown.

That would be every area of her.

Then he demanded she “reach under her shirt and pull out her bra and shake the bra and shirt.”

This was to prove she wasn’t holding any of the ol’ Breaking Bad bounty.

Shandle had asked, by the way, for a female officer to search her. Daniel told her the law doesn’t give her that right.

I’d like to say at this point that, where I come from, the situation would already mean someone’s likely gettin’ some redneck comeuppance. And I don’t mean in court.

Moving on…

Daniel asked if she had any contraband, and Shandle admitted to a marijuana roach in her pack of cigarettes.

He called her a “piece of sh**” but eventually offered a deal.

From Fox17:

Wilkey then asked her if she was “saved” and believed in Jesus Christ. She responded that she believed in Jesus Christ, but that she was not “saved” by her own choice.

The lawsuit goes on to say Wilkey told Riley that “God was talking to him during the vehicle search, and [he] felt the Lord wanted him to baptize the plaintiff.,” and said that he felt “the spirit.”

Wilkey then told Riley to get towels inside the home for a baptism, and said he would issue her only a criminal citation for marijuana and not take her to jail, according to the lawsuit. Riley says she got the towels, and followed Wilkey in his patrol car, not saying where he was taking her. Riley says she was afraid to ignore Wilkey and not do as he commanded.

Another cop — Jacob Goforth — met up with ’em at the lake. Daniel explained that baptism isn’t “valid” without a witness.

He then stripped to his boxers and told Shandle she was welcome to ditch her duds. She chose to keep on the clothes.

#ProbablyBetter

And now, Revered Daniel does his duty:

The lawsuit says Wilkey then stripped down to his boxer shorts, and gave Riley the option to remove her clothes, which she declined. It says Wilkey then led her to waist deep, cold water, put one hand on her back and the other on her breasts, and submerged her underwater for “several moments.” At this moment, Riley says she “felt horribly violated.”

Was her bra still off?

Then, according to the lawsuit, Wilkey used one towel to dry off and let Riley dry off with the other one, while Goforth “smirked” at her as she was using it.

The citation indicates Shandle was pulled over due to tinted windows and an obstructed tag.

Shandle pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. Her sentence was suspended, but she’s still on probation.

–And seeking $1,000,000 in compensatory damages, along with a cool $10 mil in punitive.

So says the suit against Hamilton County, Daniel, and Jacob.

Surely that’d be enough to get Daniel fired.

But wait — there’s more!

He’s the subject of at least one another suit, over what appears to be an insatiable need to put his fingers where they don’t belong. And I don’t mean up his nose.

Again, the alleged incident:

Daniel and Deputy Bobby Brewer pulled over Latisha Menifee on July 10th, on a false window tint violation.

Daniel told her and her passenger, James Mitchell, he could smell weed while he was following ’em.

The officers pulled Latisha out of the car and later cuffed her.

James admitted he indeed did have marijuana, and they braceleted him, too.

Daniel and Bobby then did a bit of this, as per the filing:

“Wilkey then began to grab James’ genitals. When James told Wilkey that (he) had an untreated and large hernia and that Wilkey’s actions were causing (him) pain, Brewer and Wilkey jerked James’ arms high above his back, and slammed James face-down onto the hot engine hood, causing injury….”

And, from ABC9:

The lawsuit says the deputies then beat Mitchell with “fists, knees, and feet,” and slammed him to the ground. It was then, according to the lawsuit, that they removed his pants and shoes, while continuing to beat him.

Next, the dynamic duo picked up James and bent him over the patrol car. Daniel put on gloves (never a good sign), pulled down James’s underwear, and let his fingers do the walking into a stranger’s rectum.

He “conducted an anal cavity search of James.”



The lawsuit says Menifee watched all this happen in horror, and caused her to fear that she would be treated the same way. She also says she was afraid the deputies would shoot and kill Mitchell.

They unshackled Latisha, “told her that she did not see anything,” and asked her to get outta there.

And there was this:

The lawsuit says after he was booked at the Hamilton County Jail, Mitchell was treated for several injuries. It also claims Deputy Wilkey “unlawfully seized cash” from him.

A medical examination later revealed suffered “tearing in his anus, and multiple contusions,” along with an aggravation of a hernia that eventually required surgery, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit says Mitchell suffered “mental anguish, fear of death or grievous bodily harm, and humiliation. It also claims Menifee had similar symptoms.

The complaint asks for $2,000,000 for both James and Latisha for compensatory damages, and $15 Big Ones in punitive.

Which all leads me to this:

Who’s doing the hiring for Hamilton County????

The lawsuit goes on to cite several examples of reported law enforcement brutality, saying that Hamilton County fostered a culture of corruption that permitted the two deputies to behave the way it claims they did.

Both lawsuits were filed on the same day.

Against the same cop.

Therefore, I reference my opening statement.

Now I ask you: If these guys have been accurately accused (and video and audio aren’t suggesting otherwise), what do you think will happen, and what do you think should?

I anxiously await.

He called her a “piece of sh**” but eventually offered a deal.

From Fox17:

Wilkey then asked her if she was “saved” and believed in Jesus Christ. She responded that she believed in Jesus Christ, but that she was not “saved” by her own choice.

The lawsuit goes on to say Wilkey told Riley that “God was talking to him during the vehicle search, and [he] felt the Lord wanted him to baptize the plaintiff.,” and said that he felt “the spirit.”

Wilkey then told Riley to get towels inside the home for a baptism, and said he would issue her only a criminal citation for marijuana and not take her to jail, according to the lawsuit. Riley says she got the towels, and followed Wilkey in his patrol car, not saying where he was taking her. Riley says she was afraid to ignore Wilkey and not do as he commanded.

Another cop — Jacob Goforth — met up with ’em at the lake. Daniel explained that baptism isn’t “valid” without a witness.

He then stripped to his boxers and told Shandle she was welcome to ditch her duds. She chose to keep on the clothes.

#ProbablyBetter

And now, Revered Daniel does his duty:

The lawsuit says Wilkey then stripped down to his boxer shorts, and gave Riley the option to remove her clothes, which she declined. It says Wilkey then led her to waist deep, cold water, put one hand on her back and the other on her breasts, and submerged her underwater for “several moments.” At this moment, Riley says she “felt horribly violated.”

Was her bra still off?

Then, according to the lawsuit, Wilkey used one towel to dry off and let Riley dry off with the other one, while Goforth “smirked” at her as she was using it.

The citation indicates Shandle was pulled over due to tinted windows and an obstructed tag.

Shandle pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. Her sentence was suspended, but she’s still on probation.

–And seeking $1,000,000 in compensatory damages, along with a cool $10 mil in punitive.

So says the suit against Hamilton County, Daniel, and Jacob.

Surely that’d be enough to get Daniel fired.

But wait — there’s more!

He’s the subject of at least one another suit, over what appears to be an insatiable need to put his fingers where they don’t belong. And I don’t mean up his nose.

Again, the alleged incident:

Daniel and Deputy Bobby Brewer pulled over Latisha Menifee on July 10th, on a false window tint violation.

Daniel told her and her passenger, James Mitchell, he could smell weed while he was following ’em.

The officers pulled Latisha out of the car and later cuffed her.

James admitted he indeed did have marijuana, and they braceleted him, too.

Daniel and Bobby then did a bit of this, as per the filing:

“Wilkey then began to grab James’ genitals. When James told Wilkey that (he) had an untreated and large hernia and that Wilkey’s actions were causing (him) pain, Brewer and Wilkey jerked James’ arms high above his back, and slammed James face-down onto the hot engine hood, causing injury….”

And, from ABC9:

The lawsuit says the deputies then beat Mitchell with “fists, knees, and feet,” and slammed him to the ground. It was then, according to the lawsuit, that they removed his pants and shoes, while continuing to beat him.

Next, the dynamic duo picked up James and bent him over the patrol car. Daniel put on gloves (never a good sign), pulled down James’s underwear, and let his fingers do the walking into a stranger’s rectum.

He “conducted an anal cavity search of James.”



The lawsuit says Menifee watched all this happen in horror, and caused her to fear that she would be treated the same way. She also says she was afraid the deputies would shoot and kill Mitchell.

They unshackled Latisha, “told her that she did not see anything,” and asked her to get outta there.

And there was this:

The lawsuit says after he was booked at the Hamilton County Jail, Mitchell was treated for several injuries. It also claims Deputy Wilkey “unlawfully seized cash” from him.

A medical examination later revealed suffered “tearing in his anus, and multiple contusions,” along with an aggravation of a hernia that eventually required surgery, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit says Mitchell suffered “mental anguish, fear of death or grievous bodily harm, and humiliation. It also claims Menifee had similar symptoms.

The complaint asks for $2,000,000 for both James and Latisha for compensatory damages, and $15 Big Ones in punitive.

Which all leads me to this:

Who’s doing the hiring for Hamilton County????

The lawsuit goes on to cite several examples of reported law enforcement brutality, saying that Hamilton County fostered a culture of corruption that permitted the two deputies to behave the way it claims they did.

Both lawsuits were filed on the same day.

Against the same cop.

Therefore, I reference my opening statement.

Now I ask you: If these guys have been accurately accused (and video and audio aren’t suggesting otherwise), what do you think will happen, and what do you think should?

I anxiously await.
