Seventy-Five Minutes of Resistance: Protect Yourself from Al Gore

The choice is yours.

On December 3-4, you can endure slow-talking Al Gore and his eighth annual 24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves, complete with certified has-beens, never-really-weres and on-the-way-outs like Sting & Shaggy, Moby, Jeff Goldblum & the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros, the Goo Goo Dolls, David Crosby, Jaden Smith, Bill Nye, Téa Leoni, Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, and a bunch of sanctimonious bureaucrats lecturing on what YOU should do to “save the planet”… things they exempt themselves of doing.

WaPo: ‘Right Wing’ is Violence Rising; Mutes Routine Left Wing Mayhem

It’s called bias-by-omission for a reason and the left is really good at it. For too many, if they didn’t see or hear about it on their favorite news source (New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Democracy Now!, CNN, MSNBC, etc.), it didn’t happen, so it’s understandable common sense can be challenged.

Over the past decade, attackers motivated by right-wing political ideologies have committed dozens of shootings, bombings and other acts of violence, far more than any other category of domestic extremist, according to a Washington Post analysis of data on global terrorism. While the data show a decades-long drop-off in violence by left-wing groups, violence by white supremacists and other far-right attackers has been on the rise since Barack Obama’s presidency — and has surged since President Trump took office.
Washington Post, 11/25/18

A “a decades-long drop-off in violence by left-wing groups”… really?

Maybe this is where the left can play word games to further their intentional deception by using the operative word “groups”, implying organized violence as opposed to a lone Bernie supporter who tried to kill federal lawmakers and their staffs.

BTW — That insignificant incident was afforded two sentences in paragraph 22.

Among the most deadly left-wing attacks were the 2016 killings of eight police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge by gunmen sympathetic to the Black Lives Matter movement. One of the most prominent was last year’s attack on Republican members of a congressional baseball team, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (La.). The gunman, James Hodgkinson, had raged against Trump online and was a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

There were a few more “assassinations” of police officers and sheriffs all over the country following President Obama’s anti-law enforcement rhetoric after the deaths of young black men; too many of whom would be alive today had they been home at a decent hour and not out committing crime. Yes, that’s judgmental and also a reason why millions of black men over the age of 50 are still alive today.

While the Washington Post will have too many believing that political violence is all the rage on the right, even some liberal news outlets had to allow a more accurate depiction be printed.

You need not cross the shining seas to experience violence, destruction of property and a general dismantling of liberal values from the political left. You could simply visit America’s elite college campuses like Yale or Middlebury or Berkeley, where tomorrow’s leaders attempt to shut down conservative voices with protest or riots. At Middlebury, rioting students landed liberal professor Allison Stanger in a neck brace for the crime of defending a conservative academic’s right to speak. At Berkeley, mobs of students created a “war zone” ahead of a planned visit from conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, injuring Trump supporters and causing $100,000 in damages.

Or head to Portland, Ore., one of the most liberal cities in the nation in the heart of the progressive Pacific Northwest, which this month Politico labeled “America’s Most Politically Violent City.” The progressive paradise — where Republicans are virtually an extinct species — has witnessed millions in damages attributed to the same types of anti-fascists-in-name-only that kept Hamburg residents paralyzed in fear this month. A “counter-protest” to a planned pro-Trump rally landed 14 antifa in jail for attacking the police with explosives and bricks.

Witness the blood-soaked congressional baseball field in Alexandria, Va., site of the June attack on U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and other Republicans batting up for their annual bipartisan game. James Hodgkinson, a “fervent supporter of progressive politics,” showed up to the field with a rifle, a handgun and a hit list of Republicans. As Scalise fought for his life, MSNBC host Joy Reid felt conflicted: The attempted assassination was a “delicate thing” because of Scalise’s conservative views like opposition to gay marriage. “Are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?” she wondered. Yes, Joy, you are. The shooting of a mainstream, congressional Republican leader is reprehensible, and in no way justifiable.
Chicago Tribune, 7/18/17

This is not to say there are no troublemakers on the right. There are, but way too many times they are the small in number and rather insignificant.

But it’s also helpful to accept a pattern.

These small and insignificant “right wing” groups (that many Republicans and conservatives have never heard of, until…) plan a protest. The left hears about it, mobilizes hundreds to counterprotest via social media, the alleged right wing group mobilizes hundreds in response and we have a Charlottesville where people are injured, killed… and it’s blamed on the right. Had the tree fallen with no liberal to hear it, think of all the dollars saved and lives spared.

When the left organizes a protest, business owners routinely board up their storefronts as routine preparation. A massive law enforcement presence is mobilized. You see people in blue safety vests with large white “ACLU” letters reminding those with ill intent whom to see once they get arrested. Large areas are reserved for the detention of agitators.

While the right protests for free speech, the left uses words that imply a pending outcome of violence. They defy common rules of decency with displays of vulgarity to inflame “both sides”.

   

For too many in the national news media, riots in primarily black neighborhoods make for great television and at least one old fart media pundit erroneously labeled the well-known, mostly white #Antifa an “African American organization” and has yet to issue a mea culpa, let alone an on-air correction.


Probably because their masks and clothing are black. It couldn’t be anything else, right?

The left is triggered into conniptions when anyone dares compare the violence on the right and left. President Trump was vilified for a few news cycles after the death of a Charlottesville protester when he condemned “both sides” while anyone with an Internet connection can find far more examples of massive protests in metropolitan areas, the intentional disruption of uninvolved commuters, and the millions of taxpayer dollars it always takes during and after left wing demonstration that almost always take that violent “mostly peaceful” turn.

It’s past the point when the media tells us to look one way, it’s best to look the other.

And let’s not forget how the left and their media poo-poo the numerous hate hoaxes meant to fraudulently blame the right for continuing liberal dementia.

But it’s also best to remember what liberal leadership thinks of their own and we see why the Washington Post’s bullshit has a stink that will stick long before it’s stepped in.

Deep Thinking: Did You Know That Donald Trump is OUR Fault?

We get email alerts, as annoying as most are, and some inspire commentary.

One such example is from a group called “The Trump Impeachment” and they sent a link to the following post by Joseph “Murfster35” Murphy.

You wanna blame somebody for Trump? Blame his supporters. Seriously.

The sole reason that Trump says what he says, and does what he does, is because his truest, most base supporters continue to give him positive reinforcement for his words and actions His supporters love his antics, he behaves the way that they do after their fifth round at Casey’s on a Friday night. And better yet, they get the vicarious thrill of not having their wife make them sleep on the sofa when he says or does something that they’d like to do themselves. How many times have we all read articles and comments wondering on Trump’s complete lack of civility and shame. What nobody ever seems to comment on is the complete lack of civility and shame in his backers.

“The complete lack of civility and shame in his backers”…?

Sorry but Republicans and/or conservatives didn’t immediately take to the streets on Election Night with chants and signs of “Not my president” in a direct middle finger to the winning candidate and those who voted for him.

Republicans and/or conservatives didn’t commit acts of traffic disruption and property damage on Inauguration Day and then have the nerve to dictate everyone else observe a brand of “civility” that they alone would define. They obtained permits, required minimal anticipated law enforcement presence, and always left their area of gathering cleaner than when they arrived.

Unlike liberals.

 

Republicans and/or conservatives didn’t commit acts of violence against congressmen, senators and their staff on baseball fields or their backyards, let alone be instructed by a Republican member of Congress to stalk and harass administration officials where they eat or live.

What nobody on the left ever seems to comment on is the complete lack of civility and shame of Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders’ backers.

And they’re full of shit to boot.

As observed many times over the years, when liberals are backed into an intellectual corner, their primary retort is that of personal insults while ignoring the sexist things they do and racist shit they say.

All the way back during the campaign, and ever since, when Trump’s most loyal acolytes are interviewed, they freely admit that they know that the wall will never be built, they just love chanting the slogan as a communal thing. They know he can’t deliver on what he promises, but they love him anyway, because he gives them license to show their true fears and bigotry. And besides, Trump has already delivered on his most basic campaign promise, he is demolishing the entire political and administrative structure of the government. Never forget, all of the racism and xenophobia aside, that is what they sent him there to do. And they’re thrilled.

Democrats knew achieving their pet “single-payer” project would never make it through the legislative process without direct deception to the American people, and thanks to the cover of a complicit media, the lies were blown off, and Obamacare became law fleecing millions of dollars directly from taxpayer wallets. Democrats openly gloat after-the-fact when they successfully dupe the American people and get what they want.

Democrats have also successfully pitted one group against those they prefer. Whether it’s black versus white, men and women over others, Christians versus Muslims, illegal aliens over citizens, liberals have fostered more division for political currency the general public will never be allowed to cash in. Police are ambushed and murdered, citizens are beaten in the streets when responding to progressive protests and the left is thrilled.

And he’s using them to kill our political process too. People keep gnashing their teeth about the GOP doing nothing to rein Trump in. Ever watch a politician? They govern with one wet finger sticking up in the air, looking for which way the wind is blowing. And right now, the GOP trade winds are blowing in a Trumperly direction. The old joke is true, the word politics is derived from two ancient Greek words, poly, meaning ‘many’, and tics, meaning ‘many small, bloodsucking insects.’ The days of honor and constitutional oaths are gone in the GOP, do you really think that Carlos Curbelo wants to go back to being just another common slob in January?

As Rush Limbaugh has mused, Democrats only contesting elections THEY lose after the polls close and conveniently finding votes to push their candidate over the top is killing the political process as they are casting partisan doubt on the political process. Their traditional short-sightedness with calling for an end to the Electoral College in favor of the popular vote will only last until they lose a presidential election via that process. Then we all know they’ll be the first to laud the wisdom of the Founding Fathers in the creation of the Electoral College; a wisdom Hillary Clinton now calls an “anachronism”.

And when it comes to Constitutional oaths, we need only look to the partisan malfeasance on the many Circuit Court benches where rulings are not a result of following rule-of-law precedent but by a Constitution they believe evolves according to progressive desires.

It should be fun to watch the freshman class on Capitol Hill attempt to wrench power from those who’ve held it, in some cases, before some of these freshmen were born. While they avoided going back to “being just another common slob”, they’ve created mechanisms that enrich themselves personally and it will interesting to see how quickly and easily the progressive passionate can be bought.

This is why the investigations that the new Democratic controlled House will undertake starting in January are so important. And why they must be so surgically precise. Exposing Trump’s lies and personal greed won’t do any good. Trump’s supporters won’t care, and everybody else already suspected that stuff. The investigations must be geared to exposing acts and practices that actually affect everyday Americans. There is nothing you can say that is going to turn a Trombie from the “true faith,” the goal must be the same as 2018, ignite passive voters to rise up to protect their own self interests, not the thrill of watching a Three Stooges episode on the 6 o’clock news every night.

Overturning an election result liberal Democrats didn’t like IS the objective. Imposing subsequent revenge on those who voted for Donald Trump will be sweet for them. Covering the interference by federal agencies and their employees must be covered up because the objective is more important that the Pandora’s Box that they may be susceptible to in the future. How many lives are destroyed along the way is of little consequence to those who demand we care for others.

They arrogantly expect everyone to think and vote like them. Many admit they don’t know or frequent places where their political opposition inhabit. That’s because Republicans and/or conservatives tend to be more respectful in public places and not feel entitled and empowered to force their political views on others. Republicans and/or conservatives don’t believe they have a right to shout down opposition and silence the other side simply because they don’t want to hear it.

Because the general election of 2020 is only 711 days away. Forget the Trumpaholics, they’re lost souls. If Trump is defeated in 2020, there will be no political detox for these people, they will simply slither back into whatever dark hole they came from, imply because they didn’t care about the politics, or the process, only their own amusement.

      

True, we won’t take to the streets, jump on and damage police cars, break the windows of businesses in our path, set automobiles on fire. We’ll be pissed but we won’t physically take it out on Democrats.

At least, for now.

Democrats have destroyed the American tradition of civil public discourse and self-defense is now a matter of interpretation.

We now know what the GOP ceiling in national elections in the era of Trump is. It’s 46%, that’s what Trump got in 2016, and that’s what the national Republicans got in 20178. And the only way that they can win in 2020 is if only 45.9% of us show up. It’s our job for the next 711 days to use every tool in our box to make sure that this doesn’t happen.

The 2018 midterm election tactic of finding votes was a dry run for the 2020 presidential matchup.

If the Democrat wins, it will be an accepted decision by the American people. If President Trump wins reelection, the vote will be contested, some ballots will be found and some will be misplaced or destroyed and there will be disruption in the streets, walkouts in the schools… and it will all be our fault.

White-Hollywood Guilt: How Many Minorities Has Ellen Pompeo Hired?

By Bob Parks

There are millions of Americans who work hard every day. They put a lot of time, wear and tear on their bodies just to put food on the table for their family members, and that’s before having to absorb the cost of clothes, utilities, car payments and more. Many of those Americans live from paycheck to paycheck and have no idea what their financials will be next week, let alone a year from now.

The entertainment industry pays itself very well for what they do and devote lavish ceremonies to make sure we know how good they believe they are at what they do. While many in Hollywood are humble and don’t flaunt their wealth, over the years we’ve seen too many white-guilt multimillionaire “stars” lecture us on how we need to do more for the downtrodden while they personally do little themselves… except talk.

People online and all over the world are cheering on actress, producer and now activist Ellen Pompeo after she called out a crew in the middle of an interview for not being diverse enough. And while she said there were a lot of women in the room, the “Grey’s Anatomy” star was disappointed with the lack of color behind the lens.
ABC News, 11/20/18

It’s like this is the first time Ellen Pompeo ever walked into a network television lobby, or newsroom, photo shoot or Hollywood set and the majority of minorities she sees are security guards and cleaning crews, those carrying the heavy video cameras on live remotes, not to mention those who maintain the opulent properties of her and her friends. But she tries to come off like she’s moved and really cares.

Ellen Pompeo could’ve done more and insisted on the hiring of more qualified minorities on her productions IF she really wanted to; IF it even came to mind.

Ellen Kathleen Pompeo (born November 10, 1969) is an American actress, director, and producer. She is one of the highest paid television actors, having signed a $20 million annual contract with the American Broadcasting Company in late 2017. She was honored with the 2007 Special Achievement in Entertaining by the National Italian American Foundation for her contributions to the entertainment industry.

Pompeo was then cast in ABC’s popular medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, and garnered worldwide recognition for her portrayal of the title character Dr. Meredith Grey. The role on the long running series earned her a Golden Globe nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award. The character became widely popular, making Pompeo one of the most renowned television actresses. In 2016, Pompeo was ranked fourth in the list of highest paid TV actresses by Forbes, with earnings of $14.5 million; she became the third highest paid female and the fifth highest paid actor overall in 2018 with earnings of $23.5 million. She was also the highest ranked actor from a drama series on the list.
Wikipedia

It’s so easy to bravely speak out against Hollywood after you’ve gotten yours.

Do an online search and aside from her husband and children, do you see Ellen Pompeo pictured around minorities? Not much. Has she ever boasted about the minorities in the productions she’s been involved in that’s made her millions? No.

“This day has been incredible, and there’s a ton of women in the room, but, I don’t see enough color. And I didn’t see enough color when I walked in the room today,” Pompeo opens.

Hollywood celebrities are constantly looking for attention they can monetize. They hire publicists who do nothing but plot how to garner positive press for their clients.

And let’s not forget: Ellen Pompeo is an actress.

Liberal Hollywood is a notoriously racist industry and has been documented as such on numerous occasions. The fact some still believe they can act all shocked about the roaches in their custom-made cabinets is nauseating.

“As Caucasian people, it’s our job. It’s our task, it’s our responsibility to make sure we speak up in every single room we walk into. It’s our job because we created the problem,” she added.

After today….

There are many who could do much more to open the door for people who just want an opportunity to compete and not have to be relegated to positions those in control tolerate them to be placed in.

Ellen Pompeo now feels better about herself because she knew how her words would be taken, had a convenient hankie handed to her, and social media is “cheering” her today.

Mission accomplished.

Sharyl Attkisson’s GoFundMe: Self-Serving or Public Service?

By Bob Parks

Every since Barack Obama took his last walk out of the White House, the media’s love affair with his eight years continues to this day. They even ran with his assertion that all was unicorns and rainbows during his two terms.

We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” Obama said. Sure, there were occasional mistakes and screw-ups, “but there wasn’t anything venal in eight years.

As in too many instances, when the American people are screwed over by the political or media elites, that’s too bad. But when THEY get screwed over, it becomes an all-hands-on-deck emergency we’re all expected to drop everything and rush to their aid… with our debit cards.


We, the undersigned, ask that you contribute today to this pro bono GoFundMe effort to help five time Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson finance her landmark lawsuit against the Department of Justice for the spying on her computers after she reported honestly but negatively about the federal government and the past presidential administration.

Excuse me, but “pro bono GoFundMe” makes no sense. Does that mean those “undersigned” are giving of their oh-so valuable time and reputations without requiring a cut?

While this fundraising appeal by Attkisson on Attkisson’s “behalf” appears to be an altruistic defense of the Fourth Amendment (unreasonable searches and seizures) and hostile federal government entities from intimidating journalists whose reporting they deem inconvenient at the least, there also appears to be a far more self-serving motivation going here.

Sharyl’s case is perfect for a GoFundMe account, but she felt uncomfortable about setting one up for herself. So we, the undersigned, have stepped in to help her, with all proceeds going directly to Sharyl for her lawsuit.

If you look at the names of the so-called conservative signatories that have endorsed Attkisson’s GoFundMe, you’ll see a snob circle of the very people who attempted to derail Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and disenfranchise the millions of Americans who voted for him in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

These unelected #NeverTrump conservative “leaders” instruct us on how, when and why we’re to remain loyal and support President Trump to this day, despite damage done that they’ve NEVER publicly apologized for.

They look down on conservatives and if they don’t bring up their blatant interference, it’s as if they were on the Trump train from Day One, or at least they’d have us all believe.

One spoke out publicly against Donald Trump at CPAC 2016.

Jenny Beth Martin has managed to infiltrate the Trump circle as the “leader” of a Tea Party she didn’t create, lives large off of and also fundraises off of the president to this day.

After Donald Trump won the Commonwealth of Virginia primary, one of these alleged Attkisson supporters worked with Senator Ted Cruz nationwide to steal Trump’s well-earned delegates for the purposes or creating planned havoc at the Republican Convention in Cleveland and hopefully steal the party’s presidential nomination to install Cruz as our party’s candidate.

Had Ted Cruz obtained the Republican presidential nomination, IF he could’ve survived the Hillary/media blitzkrieg and win the presidency, there’s a very good chance Cuccinelli might have been his attorney general. Cuccinelli has been floundering for relevance in the conservative movement since and now, here he is again.

Aside from their initial #Anti-Trump revulsion and interference, what do most of these people have in common?

They run conservative nonprofits that depend on donations, not only from seven-figure contributors, but from small money donors to whom they need to appear as important. So they’ve found an issue (government oppression on the media) and a sympathetic victim (Sharyl Attkisson) that they can latch onto and include this timely campaign in their fundraising solicitations. They are also those who now pompously tell us all to support President Trump and why, like they were with him from the very moment he came down the elevator at Trump Tower.

Let’s not also forget that Obama’s oppression of the media was nothing new and isolated to Attkisson.

What will be very interesting, going forward, is the discovery in Attkisson’s lawsuit. It would also be interesting to know why Attkisson felt it necessary to obtain the endorsement of some of these #NeverTrump, elitist conservatives for a fundraising boost.

Surveilling and harassing national journalists is not something done at a rogue lower level. It had to be approved on up. Just how high will be the most interesting revelation of an administration that we’re told was a pure as the driven snow.

Fundraising off of the intrusion of one is shameful, yet not a surprise because without us and our donations to keep them living comfortably, the world would keep spinning and most of them and their ‘efforts’ wouldn’t be missed.

‘Voter Suppression’ 2018: Not Allowing Democrats to ‘Find’ Enough Votes

By the year 2018 in the United States of America, the rules for running and participating in an election should be easy.

One has months to make sure he or she is registered to vote. There are many ways to do this: register by mail or find a way to get to an office by way of the same modes of transportation as one uses to go to a supermarket or coffee shop or a mall. Voting is accomplished by the same means and millions of taxpayer dollars are allocated to election divisions on the local level to assure all votes are counted on Election Night so winners and losers are certified and the American people know who their representatives will be.

At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be and was until a few years ago. For example….

In 2016, California Gov. Jerry Brown opened the door to fraud by signing a law allowing anyone to drop off a ballot for another person. This gave rise to a new practice known as “ballot harvesting” in which Democratic Party canvassers visited people who had not voted on Election Day and collected their mail-in ballots and turned them in on their behalf.

So what the Democrats did was they looked at the Election Day returns and then targeted those districts they lost but where the margin was close enough that victory might be snatched from the jaws of defeat by a little ballot harvesting.
Dick Morris, 12/3/18

So, it appears the electorate officially votes until a certain time and the results are observed unless the Democrat is losing. Then all efforts must be made to “count every vote” until the Democrat wins. At least that’s the only impression one can walk away with after the 2018 midterm elections.

Fresno Democrat TJ Cox has overtaken incumbent David Valadao in their race for California’s 21st Congressional District seat. Cox now holds a 438-vote over the Hanford Republican – 55,650 votes to 55,212. This is Cox’s first lead in the race. It appears Cox is on his way to delivering Democrats their 40th flipped seat – one that analysts and news media called for Valadao on election night.
Fresno Bee, 11/27/18

Why are there “ballots left to count”? For previous decades until today, what happened to all of those ballots after races were called on election nights of the past? Were they left in some room or destroyed?

Southern California Rep. Mimi Walters was ousted Thursday night, the latest House Republican to lose their seat in the formerly deep-red Orange County. The Associated Press called the 45th congressional district race with Democrat Katie Porter leading Walters, a two-term incumbent who previously served in the California senate, by just over 6,000 votes as ballots continue to be counted.
Politico, 11/15/18

Sorry, but I can’t remember votes being counted the weekend after an election in years past.

Must be the “new normal” when a Democrat is losing.

The recount in Florida has put the state’s election machinery to the test, and it has failed miserably: Almost 3,000 votes have vanished, the New York Times reported, while Florida recounts three state and three local elections that have yet to be called. The Florida secretary of state reported 900 fewer votes than were tallied originally, and that number is expected to balloon by 2,000 more votes when results from Broward County are reported. Although this number of votes would not necessarily swing the election from one candidate to another, it’s certainly enough to cause concern.
Yahoo, 11/17/18

Broward County isn’t some rinky-dink, podunk in the sticks.

Florida has allocated millions of dollars to staff and maintain their election apparatus yet they still manage to be a national example of gross incompetence, conveniently helmed by a black woman of equally questionable competence.

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of: “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.”

With a noon Sunday deadline looming, the three-person Canvassing Board was nonplussed and uncertain what to do. “We are concerned with the ramifications of failing to complete this task,” said Broward County Judge Betsy Benson, a member of the board. “But we don’t want to disenfranchise 714,859 voters at the expense of 2,000 voters.”

With no chance of the missing ballots surfacing, the proposed fix involves some math.
Sun Sentinel, 11/17/18

If any of us “lost” the very work materials necessary to do our jobs, we’d be reprimanded at the least. If it happened repeatedly and your name became a national adjective, you’d lose your job in a heartbeat.

Gov. Rick Scott late Friday suspended embattled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes even though Snipes had already agreed to step down from her post in early January. Scott replaced Snipes with his former general counsel even though Peter Antonacci has no elections experience. Snipes responded by rescinding her previous resignation — and will now be “fighting this to the very end,” her attorney said during a Saturday news conference.
WFTS, 12/2/18

But as we’re talking about government, rules of competence don’t apply and if it means possibly breaking the law…?

A day after Florida’s election left top state races too close to call, a Democratic party leader directed staffers and volunteers to share altered election forms with voters to fix signature problems on absentee ballots after the state’s deadline. The altered forms surfaced in Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus and Okaloosa counties and were reported to federal prosecutors to review for possible election fraud as Florida counties completed a required recount in three top races.

But an email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK – Florida shows that Florida Democrats were organizing a broader statewide effort beyond those counties to give voters the altered forms to fix improper absentee ballots after the Nov. 5 deadline. Democratic party leaders provided staffers with copies of a form, known as a “cure affidavit,” that had been modified to include an inaccurate Nov. 8 deadline.
Naples Daily News, 11/15/18

Have you noticed that “voter disenfranchisement” mainly happens in black districts? If there are any lingering racist remnants from the segregation era, Democrats still haven’t owned that.

Instead of blaming the incompetence of paid election officials like Brenda Snipes, Democrats prey on their constituents and portray them as physically and/or mentally unable to do what other citizens have done for decades, relatively unimpeded. A notion that’s insulting to black people… should they even be asked.

In 2012, I produced a video that actually included those you rarely hear from in the liberal media.

Moving forward, how are the law-abiding expected to proceed, especially when liberals improvise new ways to dilute the concept of one person, one vote? You know it would only be palatable if it resulted in Democrat victories.

Ranked choice voting (RCV) makes democracy more fair and functional. It works in a variety of contexts. It is a simple change that can have a big impact.

Always be wary of the Democrats’ use of the word “democracy”.

With ranked choice voting, voters can rank as many candidates as they want in order of choice. Candidates do best when they attract a strong core of first-choice support while also reaching out for second and even third choices. When used as an “instant runoff” to elect a single candidate like a mayor or a governor, RCV helps elect a candidate that better reflects the support of a majority of voters. When used as a form of fair representation voting to elect more than one candidate like a city council, state legislature or even Congress, RCV helps to more fairly represent the full spectrum of voters.
Fair Vote

Democrats have successfully made the hard November Election Day voting deadline an option that depends on who is “winning” and the results are disturbing, to say the least.

If the Democrat is winning by that 7 or 8pm cutoff, the “will of the people” must be observed. However if the Republican is winning, “every vote must be counted” no matter where they miraculously come from or how long it takes to “find” them.

Then and Now: Maxine Waters Sung a Very Different Tune on Impeachment

By Bob Parks

Rep. Maxine Waters describes herself as being on the “front line” in the desire of many Democrats to forcibly reverse the results of a presidential election and impeach the President of the United States; for yet-to-be-determined “high crimes and misdemeanors” and her personally-defined threshold of Donald Trump’s not being fit to lead.

Listen to the words of Congresswoman Waters in 1998 during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings where she was quite worried about the collateral damage done to others swept into the progress, the fact the charges were relatively vague and not what could be officially determined to be “high crimes”.

If one were to substitute her references to “Clinton” with “Trump”, her arguments against impeachment dance in the realm of hypocrisy.

Listen to all of the things Rep. Waters cared about in 1998: the “hatred”, the “American soldiers”, “partisan impeachment”, the “American public”, “private lives opened up” and “destroyed”, “the people’s House”, a “coup d’etat”, “extremists”, “rule of law”, “trumped-up charges”….

However, today Waters apparently cares little about the financial ruin of General Michael Flynn and others at the hands of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Waters apparently cares little about the possible removal of a “populist president” who has managed to produce bonafide results for the American people despite the resistance of the normal slow-motion process of fat-and-happy federal politicians and employees who’ve produced nothing but a lethargic mechanism that taxpayers are forced to support.

Waters apparently cares little about the American people who voted for Donald Trump and believes she can overturn the results of an election just because she doesn’t like his personality and methods.

This is (again) about Democrat power and Auntie Maxine’s quest for popularity and relevance. Just take a look at the stock market since the Democrats retook the House. It’s not pretty, but the welfare of the American people has always been a low priority when it comes to people like Rep. Waters. It’s always been about Maxine first.

Just look at the ongoing state of decline of Waters’ districts since she was first elected in 1990; a district today she’s had no desire to live in for many years.

#DemocratForeplay: Excused, Covered-Up, Defended Sexual Assault and More

Democrats are quick to dictate the terms of public discussion and instructions on the proper way to treat women, especially with blatant disregard to the “accusers”.

Yes, Bill Clinton is guilty of certain indiscretions in his private life.
Rep. Maxine Waters, 12/18/98

Terms of public discussion and instructions that fall apart when Democrats are the predators.

The left and their media has done everything they could to opaque their complicity in dismissing what is a clear pattern within the Democrat Party: high-profile elected, sexual abuse, assault, and denial via hoping it will all just go away.

Larry Wallace, a top aide to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), resigned Wednesday, amid allegations of harassment during his tenure at the California Department of Justice.

Wallace was director of the Division of Law Enforcement, under Harris who was state attorney general at the time.

Former President Bill Clinton had an embarrassing #MeToo moment last week in a televised interview, claiming he, too, was a victim of the sex scandal that led to his impeachment. But most voters disagree and see Clinton as a sexual offender instead. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 24% of Likely U.S. Voters consider Clinton a victim of his political opponents. Fifty-three percent (53%) describe the ex-president as a sexual predator instead.

Reuters, 3/25/08

This list is so incomplete because of the time it would take to document the numerous sexual abuse and assaults in places liberals control like the news media, entertainment industry, grade schools and college campuses on just heterosexuals alone.

      

Not to mention the untold number of those ready and waiting to exploit the lack of morals for their own professional rise… BEFORE claiming victim status.

Racist, Democrat Black Women Saying Stupid Things Because They Can

It wouldn’t amaze many people when hearing about the stupid things people say behind closed doors or among the comfort of their own.

But with the advent of social media, it IS amazing the stupid things people say when they know they’re either being recorded or streaming live for all the world to see.

A newly-elected state lawmaker from Memphis is facing criticism for controversial comments made in a now-deleted Facebook video. Democrat London Lamar, who ran uncontested in House District 91, posted the video following last week’s election.

Tennessee’s racist. Period. Period. Like, Tennessee is racist,” Lamar said in the video. She also said: “Most of the Tennesseeans who voted Republican are uneducated.” In another part of the video, she said: “White men voted Republican over — well over 60 or 70 percent, so obviously that’s a particular base of people who believe in superiority.
WREG 3, 11/12/18

Lamar ran unopposed, had no reason to bring race into the equation because she only needed Democrat votes. But simply because she has a mouth and now she knew she was finally going to have some power, she had to go there.

Or was it something else that set her off as to the support (or lack thereof) from her future constituents that set her off?

Nah, liberal Democrats would NEVER use the entitled victim card.

Then there’s Jada Pinkett Smith…

“Prejudice is the emotional commitment to ignorance.”

… whose acting career may have gone totally unnoticed had she not married once-superstar Will Smith. In that ongoing quest for relevance, she probably felt she needed to say something provocative and took to Facebook to share her deep words of wisdom.

I do have my own biases, specifically with blond women,” she said on the new episode of her Facebook chat show, “Red Table Talk,” posted Monday. “Blond hair on white women just triggers me, and I’ve had to catch myself. And look at me, I got blond hair!
Huffington Post, 11/13/18

While there are no available concrete numbers, but it could be assumed a good number of blond white women have watched Will’s television show, movies, and bought copies of his one major music hit. It could be argued that the support of white women alone have contributed to the lavish lifestyle Jada enjoys with her family.

Jada Pinkett Smith Recalls Time 2 White Cops Hurled Racial Slurs At Her

Of course, there’s nothing offered to corroborate that event; just take her word for it.

It’s also a good assumption that the Smiths have a hefty bank account because after Pinkett Smith’s stupid comments, there’s one demographic that may not want to spend their money on someone who has no use for them simply because of the color of their hair.

“Prejudice is the emotional commitment to ignorance.”

One can only imagine what could come out of these womens’ mouths once they were actually provoked!

Arrogant #NeverTrumpers May Have Cost 2018 Republicans The House

After every contentious presidential primary, we’re always told to rally around the frontrunner. Many of us had to hold our noses whether in recent years our remaining option was a Bob Dole, a John McCain or a Mitt Romney. Many of us knew they didn’t have what it took to stave off a liberal media onslaught, but we did what the party bosses demanded and look what it got us.

In 2016, we finally had a candidate in Donald J. Trump who made neutering a hostile media his first priority but because he wasn’t of the pedigree unelected conservatives approved of, they decided to not only denigrate Trump but also the millions of Americans who supported him. Their vocal opposition, in some cases, continued on until Election Day 2016 and we’ll never know how many popular votes weren’t cast for him as a result.

In 2018, we hear there were record turnouts for the midterm election but some Republicans who were supposed to win, lost. How many races were lost because sore-loser #NeverTrumpers stayed home or voted for Democrats?

Mary Beth Hunt: I voted in 2016 but was unable to vote for either Trump or Clinton. In the midterms, I will vote for Democratic candidates for House, Senate, and governor. I’m holding my nose to do it, but I hope there are enough like-minded people to check Trump’s power. I fear we are watching the demise of our democracy, and desperate times call for desperate measures!

Richard Wright: I am a former lifelong Republican (became independent after Trump’s nomination), a Burkean conservative reader of National Review and Commentary, and Ross, along with David Brooks, are two of my current ideological guideposts. I have already mailed in my [Florida] ballot in which I did exactly as Ross proposed: Dem for the House, Rep for the Senate, and a write in of Jeb Bush for Gov. since Gillum is too far to the left and Desantis is too much a Trump sycophant.

Eric Morgan: It was with a clothespin upon nose and a very heavy heart that I pulled the lever for Hillary in 2016. So, I count myself among the Never Trumpers who has taken the previously inconceivable action of voting for not only a Democrat but one of the most deeply flawed candidates in my lifetime. Here is the good news — I live in Utah and will vote for Mitt Romney who has shown the courage to speak out against the most flawed President since Nixon. I hope he doesn’t let us down.

Lynn Schmidt: I am a Never Trump former Republican. I live in Missouri where we have Senator McCaskill running against Josh Hawley. Josh is a Trump lackey. I will be voting for and even have donated money to several Democratic campaigns.
New York Times, 10/26/18

#NeverTrumpers did a lot of damage on the way to Election Day 2016 and continue to play narcissistic head games to this day.

I was a Never Trumper in 2016, and I’ve strongly criticized the president countless times since his election. Unless he has a character transplant, I have no intention of voting for him for president in 2020. But I’ll happily vote for Marsha Blackburn over Phil Bredesen.
David French, 7/24/18

With all due respect, but who the fuck elected National Review’s David French or George Will to leadership positions where THEY and others can tell conservatives who and who not to vote for? Some of the very “conservative principles” people who did so much damage are now the ones reminding us of our DUTY to support President Trump and why, not because they had a come-to-Jesus-moment but because their opulent personal incomes and status depends on it.

This is now not bitching about what happened last week, but an attempt to see what damage there may still to be done. You know there’s room for concern when liberals believe there are those on our side that will create internal havoc that will only serve to help Democrats.

Only Never Trumpers can credibly claim to stand against the moral abominations that suffused Trump’s political rise and the first year of his presidency. They alone are conserving a faction on the right that stands against deplorability in the face of a president who remains a cruel, mendacious egomaniac. They alone can credibly claim to oppose racial demagoguery.
The Atlantic, 12/27/18

Despite the fact President Trump is doing more for Americans than the last few presidents combined, #NeverTrump Cruzers are no better than that spoiled punk who took his marbles and went home after losing. The problem is they’re not only taking out their aggression on President Trump but every candidate down-ballot, as well as conservatives and Republicans who got off their asses and went to the polls.

Hundreds of thousands of #NeverTrumpers supported Ted Cruz and refused to support the eventual Republican nominee. These are the very same people who’ll demand we all come together and support a future nominee they see unwavering virtue in.

I wonder what rationale they’ve instruct us to respect when it comes to decorum after the primary ends and it’s time to come together?
