Is the Media Hoping for an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Crash-and-Burn?

We’ve all seen the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez media love affair. She’s everything the entertainment industry loves as a template: she’s young, a minority, and an underdog that won.

The news media is overlooking her obvious lack of basic civic knowledge regarding the branches of government and how things work on Capitol Hill because with her every social media post, video upload, office protest, defiance of authority, she remains good content.

In her arrogance of youth, she’s not making the best first impression amongst her new peers.

Ocasio-Cortez storms Washington, winning headlines but rankling some colleagues

In the grand scheme of things, she’s insignificant and thus disposable. Like most her age, she’s also ignorant of one of the media’s themes over many, many years:

“We build them up only to tear them down.”

We remember many who’ve been icons with documentable achievements that have left an indelible mark on American society. For example, Michael Jackson created productions that were events people eagerly waited years in between projects for. The hype was immense and the final product worth the wait. People like Jackson were considered entertainment deity and the media promoted the greatness of their works… until there was an opening and thus an opportunity to wall-to-wall exploit a looming demise.

Contrast that to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who aside from defeating an incumbent who believed he just needed to show up and win, she really hasn’t accomplished anything of value in her short life. Yes, she won an election; like this is a feat that changed the world. She’s basically a parody of Valley Girl-turned-United States congresswoman and there’s a very good chance a similar treatment is gathering dust on a producer’s shelf somewhere in Hollywood.

She’s just one House member out of 435 who will be also seeking their share of political and media relevance.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Will Push Washington. Will Washington Push Back?

While she’s currently being publicly defiant to the President of the United States and even the Democrat leadership, reality will hit her square in the face. If not by a President Trump who won’t even acknowledge her insignificance, but a wannabe Speaker Pelosi who’s systematically making all those rookies who ran on unseating her, shut their mouths and get with the program that’s been in place before Ocasio-Cortez was born.

Ocasio-Cortez will be squashed by her own party leadership as she probably got that behind-the-scenes talking-to that gets minds right real quick.

Ocasio-Cortez backs Pelosi for speaker as long as she ‘remains the most progressive candidate’

Yeah, okay.

Those pre-midterm convictions didn’t last long and she’s not the only loudmouth freshman whose defiant rhetoric versus Pelosi support changed after a few short days on the Hill.

They got that how-easy-things-can-be-or-how-difficult-things-quickly-would-become reality check although there are still some holdouts.

Problem Solvers Dems: We ‘cannot support’ Pelosi for Speaker ‘at this time’

There’s no reason for anyone on Capitol Hill to capitulate to Ocasio-Cortez’ very public and juvenile demands. Comeuppance beatdowns are storylines the media loves, even when it’s today’s “it”. While Democrats play up public entitlements, Capitol Hill doesn’t recognize them in leadership until you’ve done your time (which can take decades) towing the line.

There are rules and some of them have been around since the formal formation of the Congress. Ocasio-Cortez will try and decide which rules she will abide by and which she will demand she be an exception. The real world doesn’t work that way, Congress doesn’t work that way, and the media will be documenting the drama as it unfolds because unlike Hollywood, no one in the biz stands to lose if an irrelevant upstart is kicked to the curb. It doesn’t take much for what was once media awe and admiration to take that ugly turn to the voyeurism of personal destruction.

We shall soon see just what the media REALLY thought of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the first place, once she opens her mouth and it really counts.

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.

Colin Kaepernick’s Girlfriend Nessa is His Immediate Problem… AGAIN

With the recent season-ending injuries creating possible openings in the National Football League, the controversy surrounding the availability of Colin Kaepernick has reemerged. Not by the sports media per se, but by the very girlfriend who quashed a done deal over a year ago.

Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa, is among those who believe the NFL is intentionally keeping the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback out of the league. She wasn’t the only one to insinuate as much, as former NFL player Charles Woodson told TMZ, “There’s a lot of guys that are in the conversation to be picked up. We know the reason [Kaepernick is] not one of those guys … but he should be.

TMZ also noted former cornerback Antonio Cromartie suggested Kaepernick is better than the list of quarterbacks Washington brought in to work out after Alex Smith suffered an injury in Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.
Bleacher Report, 11/19/18

So inconvenient for Nessa, but Kaepernick may have been playing on an NFL field today had it not been for her opportunist “activist” big mouth… and more.


Of course, the media and the activist left will never admit that Nessa’s direct interference in the Baltimore Ravens deal is THE reason Colin Kaepernick is not throwing footballs on an NFL field for an NFL team today.

As the entire world knows by now, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in Friday’s pre-season game against Green Bay because he was protesting ‘black oppression’ in the United States. We’re now hearing that it was actually his girlfriend Nessa’s idea for Colin to protest.

Fox News also looked into the couple and found evidence that seems to show that his “conversion to social activism” happened only after he began dating his girlfriend, DJ Nessa Diab. Her social media account has plenty of photos and posts related to her job as a DJ but it also shows her stance as a black rights activist and Islam defender.
The Grio, 9/3/16

As written before, NFL teams are businesses and their main goal is to win as many football games as possible; not absorb those who have an unrelated off-the-field agenda. Calling a team owner racist with nothing to back it up is also in that things-not-to-do list; especially when your previous on-the-field record was questionable at best.

Especially coming from a girlfriend who may just up and leave her boyfriend once someone of a higher profile and value is available.

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.

Consistent LOSSES! Cruz Millennials Should NOT Be Running GOP Campaigns

Look at the Democrats and how they run political campaigns. They seldom make unforced errors based on repeating mistakes from years ago. They are focused, targeted, and experienced. Unlike those allegedly on our side.

Too many uninformed conservatives (who have the ear of our candidates because they donate to them) believe millennials should be running our campaigns because they have ‘less responsibilities’ and can devote more time to what has to be done on the ground. Not sure where that wisdom came from but it’s too bad the consistent bad results aren’t the massive red flag they should be.

    

Greg Bannon ran for United States Senate in North Carolina and lost.
Roy Moore ran for United States Senate in Alabama and lost.
Chris McDaniel ran for United States Senate in Mississippi and lost.
Corey Stewart ran for Governor and United States Senate and lost.
Paul Nehlen ran for United States Congress in Wisconsin and lost.

Now what do you think these candidates all have in common?

Arrogance, condescension and a group of North Carolina political operative millennials whose only real accomplishments are separating Republicans from their wallets.

Campaign millennials locate marks, demand and are paid top dollar despite actual accomplishments.

I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best… cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better.
James Harrison, former Pro Bowl linebacker

That’s assuming they really tried their best. Sadly, the “participation trophy” mentality has infected Republican politics.

Moore’s campaign paid two companies more than $730,000, according to Federal Election Commission records. It paid another $130,000 in total to a GOP consultant and another firm that lists his home in D.C. as its mailing address.
Daily Beast, 2/28/18

These companies, despite a record of achievement, has successfully gotten a stranglehold in Virginia Republican politics and maybe even got Corey Stewart to part with a generous lump sum from a previously, well-earned warchest to feed the millennial losers.

Another Cruzer who sucked money out of Stewart’s campaign was a so-called “social media marketing” company with a very unremarkable website. Again, despite a prior track record of success, it (he?) was paid consistently.

Corey Stewart ran Donald Trump’s Virginia apparatus so we all know where he’s coming from. With that, why would he become associated with ANYONE associated with the very same Ted Cruz campaign that tried to steal Trump delegates in Virginia?

In August, U.S. Army veteran Spence Rogers sold his house in Tampa, Florida and bought an RV, and set off with his wife and three children for a cross-country adventure. Rogers, his family and the RV ended up in Iowa — a state he had never before visited — and instead of sightseeing, he signed on to be Cruz’s deputy director for Iowa.
CBS News, 1/15/16

Sorry, who does that to their family?

Prior to Stewart’s gubernatorial run, Bob personally sat down with Corey. It ended with him saying he wanted Bob to work on his campaign. However in a subsequent phone call, Rogers didn’t seem to want him on the campaign, said he already had people shooting video with their “tablets” and iphones, and the directive of the candidate was never observed. The pattern of condescension from self-important millennials, despite an ROI of accomplishment is a cancer conservatives need to starting purging.

Stewart’s campaign was managed by Spence Rogers whose outfit, Grow To Win, collected $73,600 for his services. The Stewart campaign used Rick Shaftan’s Atlantic Media and Research for their TV and radio buys, spending $217,631 in the losing effort.
Bearing Drift, 6/8/18

Why is this important? Again, the level of documented unprofessional behavior without favorable results.

Stephen Lonegan aide Rick Shaftan was fired after an explicit tirade to Talking Points Memo about Mr Booker’s unwillingness to ‘take advantage of the perks of office’ during interaction the Newark mayor had with a vegan from Oregon, concluding he tweets like ‘a gay guy.’
Daily Mail, 10/12/13

Granted, Shaftan is older but has set the bad example and should have never been considered for races of monumental importance.

Fritsch made a series of controversial social media posts that drew negative attention to Stewart’s campaign. Another Stewart campaign aide, Rick Shaftan, has a history of social media posts that includes calling the NAACP a “more violent” version of the KKK and saying only a “fool” would start a business in a black neighborhood.
Richmond Times-Dispatch, 9/17/18

Why anyone who supported Ted Cruz, especially when he and Ken Cuccinelli were trying to steal Donald Trump’s well-earned delegates, would be hired by staunch Trump conservative candidates is beyond logic.

And too many of the people absorbed into their campaigns in paid positions are more about flaunting themselves and instead of updating supporters on the state of the campaigns, are more about posting Facebook live videos of themselves going from one event to another and producing amateurish vertical videos for what are, in some cases, multi-million dollar national campaigns.

We’ve since had negative dealings with some of these people and we’d hope that any Virginia Republican in the future really take a look at their track record before cutting checks to any of these rude, condescending punks. Did we say we had negative dealings with some of them?

In sports, any team in rebuilding mode seeks personnel with a winning record. Very, very few teams hire coaches who can’t point to recent winning accomplishments, but in the world of politics our candidates are given poor advice as to who to hire and end up with consistent losers at the helm.

Here’s yet ANOTHER example.

Joe Arpaio ran for United States Congress in Arizona and lost.

  

How often do you see Democrat campaign “consultants” make it all about them during the campaign?

   

It could be argued that had these “Team Arpaio” consultants spent more time promoting the candidate instead of themselves, the outcome may have been different.

Many of us remember, before places of employment were transformed into millennial safe spaces, a time when younger workers would sit and listen during conservations in the workplace. It was because older employees were experienced and the youngsters thus had little of value to offer that conversation. But today, we’re told to value them despite their lack of experience and the results permeate throughout society, including our political campaigns.

Like so many other examples we’ve documented, until conservative Republicans learn to vet those they elevate and pay, we’ll continue to look the fool after losing another winnable election cycle.

As one millennial posted above, “rich people are often stupid. As an indicator valuable.” – and there’s no shortage of millennials who are clamouring to take their money.

Let’s stop losing important elections that affect our daily lives and freeze out political predator opportunists.

#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.

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.

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?
