Beto's O'Rourke's Campaign Events Are So Bad He Is Inviting Mexico to Come

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the apparent lead balloon of a presidential campaign of Beto O'Rourke has targeted social media advertisements at individuals across the frontera mexicana, as can be seen in this screenshot of the Facebook transparency tools. Facebook has for the past year allowed users to see where a group is targeting it sponsored posts using the "info and ads" tab.

The Beto campaign event page posted in English and Spanish shows he was paying to have certain posts targeted at users in Mexico. Among them, O'Rourke paid to blast out to Mexicans an invitation to his campaign stop today at the Jacobs Center in San Diego, Calif. Y'all come on up and stay awhile!   
"It is unclear why O'Rourke is running ads in Mexico for his campaign to be president of the United States. There is a Democrats Abroad primary that will be held next March, but O'Rourke has made no mention of it thus far on the campaign trail. A review of the Facebook pages for each of O'Rourke's Democratic opponents for the presidential nomination found that none were running ads targeting anybody outside the United States."
Well, it's pretty easy to figure this one out......the novelty is beginning to wear off. Beto needs the butts in the seats to make a good show for the media cameras and big money contributors, and to help draw the Hispanic vote, legal or illegal, to do well in the coming border states primaries. Poor Beto's campaign stops have been less and less fruitful lately, and he took a big hit by losing the favor of daytime televisions political science geniuses, the white-male bashing cackling hens of 'The View'.

Joe Biden's Mouth Outruns It's Supply Line.....

Pray Tell Joe. Which Is It? BullS**t Biden or Gaslight Joe?

Former Two Term Assassination Insurance Policy for Barack Obama, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.

We’ve all had the word burned into our minds almost since the day Donald Trump announced his run for President. “Collusion.” It was the grease for the most egregious example of fake news of our time. And we've all heard the word "gaslighting", a tactic of people who try to control others through manipulation, often accusing others of behaviors that they are engaged in themselves.

And while DJT never ‘colluded’ with Russia or anyone other than hard working Americans, it looks as if it's Joe Biden running smack into hard, admitted collusion with foreign leaders. But he’s keeping WHO a secret.

Consider Biden’s recent boast, as reported in Politico, that "I get calls from people all over the world — world leaders are calling me — and they’re almost begging me to do this, to save the country, save the world." Level with us 'Lunchbucket Joe', Who are they? What foreigners are attempting to influence our election and direction of our policy? Umm Joe.

What foreign leaders don’t like a tougher America on trade, and against terrorism and against our avowed enemies? Who was it Joe, Sounds like maybe Russia? China? Iran? North Korea? ISIS? Any of these, Joe? These are the countries and terror groups who most want to reverse course to the Obama 'easy on our enemies' policies. Who wants America to again be weak? To again ignore terror organizations? To again ignore nuclear weapons and ICBM development in rogue states? To finally eliminate America’s borders? To betray our enemies and befriend our sworn enemies? To offer encouragement and a blind eye to gangs and state actors who smuggle into America all the drugs, weapons and terrorists they can? Who’s colluding, Joe?

This, after John Kerry met with Iranian dictators, advising them to ‘wait out’ President Trump at which time their worldwide reign of terror and nuclear weapons could resume at warp speed. Joe, are you colluding with the likes of a John Kerry and the butchers in Tehran? With Hillary and her friends in Russia?

Pray Tell Joe, who are these world leaders that begged you to run for president.

It seems that Biden, not silent in the relentless and fake-news attacks on the president of the United States, is not silent in his crying wolf that Trump, not himself is the colluder, and fits the definition of “accusing you of behaviors that they are engaged in themselves."

"Lunchbucket Joe?" Or maybe "Colluding Joe" or "Gaslight Joe." Take your pick.

If Anyone Would Know About No Hope of Getting a Date, It Would Be The Sissy Boys at the NYTs

It's been a really bad week for our betters in the ivory tower of the paper of record. Anti-Semitic cartoons, calling Jesus a Palestinian and now this pathetic defense of Ocasio-Cortez and socialism. They’re really covering themselves in glory these days.

He Who Wants Not To Break Bread, Attacks Thee!

Lil' Brian Has His Tutu All In a Wad Again
Brian Stelter, CNN's testosterone challenged drama queen & chief media janitor seen daily as host of the ironically named 'Reliable Sources', claimed with all seriousness that DJT's decision to skip the White House Correspondents'Dinner this weekend was "an attack against the media." No really, he said that:
"This administration’s attack against the media takes many forms. One form is the President having a rally this Saturday instead of attending the dinner and I do think it matters mostly because what it means about these tensions continuing to escalate."
So ignoring one of Washington's most pompous annual events, a self-worshipping observance of overly inflated egos is now being considered an attack. Trump earlier told reporters he was skipping the event "because the dinner is so boring and so negative that we’re going to hold a very positive rally instead.”
"In the past, presidents have always shown up, even if they were angry at the press at the time. The usual tensions between reporters and government representatives have escalated to extreme levels in the Trump age, due largely to the president's near-daily attacks against the media."
In reality, tensions between DJT and the bias media have risen because he refuses to put up with their dishonest, unfair, and the ridiculously bullshit coverage of his administration.

To hear someone in the national media, especially from of all people CNN, actually complain bitterly about these incomprehensible "rising tensions," you'd almost think that the last two years of the media's 24/7 malicious, Russia-obsessed coverage of DJT, the blatant (and still ongoing) attempt to cripple his presidency and ultimately lead to his impeachment, never happened. But it did, and so the president very understandably wants not to break bread with these hateful malicious slugs. Years of fake reportage, screaming hypocrisy, disgusting double standards and open in-your-face partisanship have earned them well-deserved enmity. Attempts to portray themselves as victims of "attacks" because the president fights back, are truly pathetic. 

Squinty Scarborough: Biden Will Be Road-Kill On Way To Dem Party Nomination

On today's Squinty & Meat Puppet in the Morning, Squinty Joe didn't just pour ice water on Joe Biden's campaign, he and his guest unleashed a veritable Niagara falls of negativity about Uncle Joe's presidential prospects. Joe Scarborough led off with this stunning assertion:
"....almost every Democrat I have spoken with is concerned that this is going to end badly for Joe Biden, and that he should not get into the race."

The Crazy Train Just Keeps Picking Up Speed

More and more polls are showing the American people are not fond of impeachment and coming to the conclusion that the President was indeed the victim of political persecution. With the Democrat Klown Kar jamming more and more corpses into it almost on a daily basis, the other thing besides demonizing Trump and America as founded, is the pimping of more free shit to the Free Shit Army is what amounts to a Constitutional Demolition Derby.

Never Ever Trust a Politician Who Wears 
Socks With Sandals
You were warned the other day 37-year-old kid mayor Buttgig is going pedal to the metal for you heathens to bake that cake, but now Kamala Harris is promising some sort of second amendment destroying edict in her first 100 days (G-d forbid) as president. Then we have Bernardo Sandersnista who wants to give the vote to convicted felons, including convicted terrorists like the Boston Marathon Bomber. If you have to scrounge for votes in prisons, what does that say about your confidence in how many supporters you have among the citizenry (hence, open borders)?

And not that he has a snowball's chance in hell, but potential candidate comrade De Blasio wants to make the stone age great again in New York by banning glass and steel skyscrapers. Yet when confronted by his hypocrisy of taking a motorcade of SUVs with him to the gym every day, he states that his deserved luxury would be offset by making whoever the hell would remain on Pliskin's Island shiver and starve in the cold and dark. There's a scene towards the end of Woody Allen's Bananas where the rebel leader now installed as president of San Marcos gets a glassy look in his eye and starts rattling off new laws like "all citizens must now wear their underwear on the outside."

Compared to De Bolshevik, I think he'd be preferable. - J.J. Sefton

Bullet Head Charges Forward So Dems Can Try To Save Face

Since the Muellar report release, Democrats have grappled with the political risk of initiating impeachment proceedings against the president (because he is Donald Trump) or to continue investigating his conduct and business dealings through House committees to find an egregious crime like an unpaid library fine or a complicated business deal they're not smart enough to understand and call suspicious.

Appearing on 'Face The Nation' Sunday, Maryland Rep. Elijah 'Bullet Head' Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said President Trump will be emboldened if congressional Democrats "do nothing". After two years of Democrats and their minions in the media spreading disinformation and not getting the results they expected, they now fear a political backlash.

Cummings noted that fellow Committee Chairs Adam 'Shitweasel' Shiff and J. Fatman Nadler are all up in the media spreading the justification for their own committee's further investigations because Mueller's team did not follow a "traditional prosecutorial judgement" because of different factors prevented Mueller from reaching a conclusion in his probe into whether the president committed obstruction of justice. With only innuendo and no  evidence of wrong doing to sight as a reason, Cummings said impeachment is indeed an option, even if the Republican-controlled Senate refused to convict the president and remove him from office. That reeks of desperation.

"If we do nothing here, what is going to happen is that the president is going to be emboldened. He's going to be emboldened because he's said, 'Well, I got away with that." Cummings said "We cannot afford that."

I wasn't aware making democrats cry was an impeachable offense.

Fun With Leftist and Pseudoscience

In my reading time yesterday I came across an interesting link to a story that took me to the notorious website, Raw Story, an ad platform masquerading as a information source, legendary for leftist tripe, misinformation and misinterpretation of the things of this world. The post, steeped in pseudoscience, was one that as you read, it immediately hits you as perfect example of Psychological Projection. With a simple changing of one overused crucial word, and a few others for effect, an interesting thing happens - Real truths appear.

See if you can guess what the critical word is changed. My changes are in Italics.

A Link Between Brain Damage and Leftist Fundamentalism Has Been Established by Scientist

A study published in the journal Neuropsychologia has shown that Leftist fundamentalism is, in part, the result of a functional impairment in a brain region known as the prefrontal cortex. The findings suggest that damage to particular areas of the prefrontal cortex indirectly promotes Leftist fundamentalism by diminishing cognitive flexibility and openness—a psychology term that describes a personality trait which involves dimensions like reality and open-mindedness.

Leftist beliefs can be thought of as socially transmitted mental representations that consist of unreal expectations and cults of personalities. Leftist beliefs differ from empirical beliefs, which are based on how the world appears to be and are updated as new evidence accumulates or when new theories with better predictive power emerge. On the other hand, Leftist beliefs are not usually updated in response to new evidence or explanations, and are therefore strongly associated with verbose self-inflected beclowning of it's adherents. They are fixed and rigid, which helps promote unpredictability and incoherence to the rules of civil society among individuals within the group.

Leftist groups generally oppose anything that questions or challenges their beliefs or way of life. For this reason, they are often aggressive towards anyone who does not share their specific set of  beliefs, and towards the truth, as these things are seen as existential threats to their entire worldview.

Since leftist beliefs play a massive role in driving and influencing human behavior throughout the world, it is important to understand the phenomenon of  leftist fundamentalism from a psychological and neurological perspective. To investigate the cognitive and neural systems involved in leftist fundamentalism, a team of researchers of Northwestern University conducted a study that utilized data from Social Justice War veterans that had been gathered previously. CT scans were analyzed comparing 119 SJW vets with brain trauma to 30 healthy citizens with no damage.

Based on previous research, the experimenters predicted that the prefrontal cortex would play a role in leftist fundamentalism, since this region is known to be associated with something called ‘cognitive flexibility’. This term refers to the brain’s ability to easily switch from thinking about one concept to another, and to think about multiple things simultaneously. Brain imaging research has shown that a major neural region associated with cognitive flexibility is the prefrontal cortex—specifically two areas known as the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC).   The vmPFC was of interest to the researchers because past studies have revealed its connection to fundamentalist-type beliefs.

According to Dr. Grafman and his team, since  leftist fundamentalism involves a strict adherence to a rigid set of beliefs, cognitive flexibility and open-mindedness present a challenge for fundamentalists. As such, they predicted that participants with lesions to either the vmPFC or the dlPFC would score low on measures of cognitive flexibility and trait openness and high on measures of Leftist fundamentalism. The results showed that, as expected, damage to the vmPFC and dlPFC was associated with Leftist fundamentalism. These findings are important because they suggest that impaired functioning in the prefrontal cortex—whether from brain trauma, a psychological disorder, a drug or alcohol addiction, or simply a particular genetic profile—can make an individual susceptible to Leftist fundamentalism. And perhaps in other cases, extreme leftist indoctrination harms the development or proper functioning of the prefrontal regions in a way that hinders cognitive flexibility and openness.

By investigating the cognitive and neural underpinnings of leftist fundamentalism, we can better understand how the phenomenon is represented in the connectivity of the brain, which could allow us to someday inoculate against rigid or radical belief systems through various kinds of mental and cognitive exercises.


Here is the original version, without my helpful corrections.

Adam Schiff Pivots From Collusion Truther to Cranky Crybaby

Despite the fact Special Counsel Mueller debunked it and concluded that there is no provable evidence of collusion, Adam Schiff is desperately clinging to the Russia collusion delusion. And now Schiff has pivoted, saying that even if President Trump hasn’t committed any crimes, he should still be condemned because the Shitweasel just doesn’t like him.
“Whether these acts are criminal or not — whether the obstruction of justice was criminal or not — or whether these contacts were sufficiently illicit to rise to the level of a criminal conspiracy, they are unquestionably dishonest, unethical, immoral and unpatriotic. And should be condemned by every American. And that is how I think we should view the Mueller report.”
Schiff has repeatedly claimed that he has some secret evidence proving that Trump colluded with Russia and obstructed justice, but has never coughed up this supposed secret “evidence.” I suspect that with Bullethead's, Nadler's and Schiff's House committee's  'Russia, Russia Russia' investigations in full swing, the newest television 'Shitweasel Tour' is sure to start back up bright and early Monday morning.

Long before Trump's election, the Russians' goal was to create chaos in our electoral process. As long the democracts keep this political witchhunt going the more they help the Russians reach their goal. They are laughing at what the dems are doing to the US, something Russia couldn't have done on their own.....

Democrats Intent On Destroying Themselves over the Official Mueller Probe Report

The longer the Democrats obsess over the Mueller report and the possibility of obstruction, the bigger hole they dig for themselves. The reason is simple. The average American -- what Groucho Marx used to call the Barber in Peru (Indiana) -- not the army of Beltway lawyers, will scratch his/her head about why someone should be charged with obstructing justice for a crime he did not commit and did not even occur (i. e. collusion with Russia).

Yes, they understand there are legal niceties, but the bottom line remains. And those same middle American "Peruvians" realize -- how could they not -- that Donald Trump was under unprecedented assault from the media and Democrats from well before he first sat down behind the desk in the Oval Office. They further are completely familiar with Trump's personality, his thin skin, his outspokenness, and are able to see him as a man responding emotionally -- sometimes to his own detriment -- to those almost entirely unjustified accusations. Most people will sympathize or at minimum be able to understand this as a defensible human reaction rather than obstruction of justice in a legal sense.

This is why House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and his cohorts are acting essentially as unpaid press agents for the president by keeping the Russia probe front and center and consequently paying less attention to issues that actually affect people's lives. - Roger Simon

What Is it About Jeffrey Toobin and Stepping On Rakes?

The number of people in the media losing their minds over what the Mueller Report says, or rather what is not saying, continues to grow. CNN has been particularly all-in on the idea that Trump has got to be guilty of something, and is going wall-to-wall with its coverage of insinuations. But, it’s not the on air personalities that are doing the best analysis out there. It’s the people who are payed “analysts” for the network, all of whom have a very inflated sense of self-worth, who are firing away with some of their best material. Aside from the mumbling semi-senile, one trick pony Carl Bernstein, none is more entertaining than Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who is very good at being not good at legal analysis. Toobin, who seems to have acquired a love of publicly stepping on rakes didn't disappoint us today:

The responses from blue checks were swift and merciless. A few examples:

Jeffrey is using the classic Elle Woods legal philosophy here. If you’ve ever seen the movie 'Legally Blonde', then you know that "exercise releases endorphins, endorphins make people happy, and happy people don’t kill their husbands." Toobin expands this legal theory into a custom analysis of Trump’s behavior during the Mueller investigation.

Over to you Carl Bernstein........

If You Don't Believe Our Culture Has Gone Off The Rails, Well Just Read This:

Prestigious Library Journal Comes Out Against........ Libraries 

Don’t Oppress My People With Your Public Libraries

The Tweeter feed of the prestigious Library Journal, a "global community of more than 200,000 librarians and educators," proudly directs its readers to the mental exertions of one of it's own, Ms. Sofia Leung and her screed entitled "Whiteness As Collections"  
"Our library collections, because they are written mostly by straight white men, are a physical manifestation of white men ideas taking up all the space in our library stacks. Pause here and think about this."
Ms Leung, an academic librarian, is unhappy that public libraries in the US, a white-majority culture with a white-majority history, tend to have among other things lots of books by authors with pale skin, white dudes thinking great thoughts, or as we used to call it, Western Civilization. This, we’re told, is an “interesting mini-eureka moment” that our Queen of Intersectional Rumination feels compelled to share. 

Ms. Leung airs her distaste for "white men ideas", as if they had been uniform across continents and throughout history, while reminiscing about attending a "white AF conference" two years earlier. I was unsure what the “AF” might refer to and searched for some literary or scholarly explanation. It then occurred to me that a "white AF conference" is, to borrow the woke vernacular, a white as fuck conference. Which is how not-at-all-racist academic librarians convey their thoughts, apparently.
"If you look at any United States library’s collection, especially those in higher education institutions, most of the collections (books, journals, archival papers, other media, etc.) are written by white dudes writing about white ideas, white things, or ideas, people, and things they stole from POC and then claimed as white property… 
When most of our collections filled with this so-called "knowledge," it continues to validate only white voices and perspectives and erases the voices of people of colour."
At which point, things get a little breathless and intermittently grammatical. However, readers may wish to ponder how synthesising insights from around the world, and from cultures long gone, and preserving those insights in libraries is somehow a bad thing. Readers may also wish to ponder the implications of a librarian and self-styled educator, schooled at the University of Washington and Barnard College New York, and who is offended by the existence of “white ideas” and the “so-called : knowledge of "white dudes."

As if sensing that her thoughts aren’t sufficiently lurid and unhinged, Ms. Leung then shifts into higher gear;
"Library collections continue to promote and proliferate whiteness with their very existence and the fact that they are physically taking up space in our libraries. They are paid for using money that was usually ill-gotten and at the cost of black and brown lives via the prison industrial complex, the spoils of war, etc...."
Amid this avalanche of conspiracy theories and rote indignation, we’re told that the prevalence of books by pale-skinned authors in a majority-white country "indicates that we… don’t think people of colour are… as important as white people."  The exact line of reasoning here is somewhat unclear and obscured by the inevitable in-group incantations, including "sites of whiteness", a term deployed to describe public libraries, and which we’re to believe somehow crush the very breath out of the heroically brown.

Ms. Leung reminds me of another classless ethnic elitist we all know who once spoke in a similar vein.

Buttimania Is All The Rage

Now that Beto O'Rourke has been exposed as the buffoonish imbecile that we always suspected he was from the beginning, the media have scrambled to help find a new standard-bearer for Democrats, and have settled as the flavor-of-the-day, Pete Buttigieg. Since so many in the media seem to be gay these days, Mayor Pete has become that new shiny thing that, unlike caustic loudmouths Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and commie curmudgeon Bernie Sanders, is like an adorable little pet. Kinda like a gerbil.

Buttigieg has been the subject of multiple glowing media stories over the last several weeks even though he has little political experience at anything other than overseeing the filling of potholes and is the hip midwestern millennial with the cute hubby that liberal media types are swooning over.  He has now joined the pack in rear ending our democracy,  spewing the party line by taken up the rallying cry to disenfranchise tens of millions of Americans, including those in his home state, by eliminating the Electoral College and allowing the coastal elitist and urban pavement dwellers to steal the democratic process away from ordinary citizens. Democrats seem more willing than ever to gut the Constitution if that is what it takes to regain the presidency and secure their place as our permanent overlords.

But some in the media are reluctant to play dutch rudder with Mayor Pete, seeing the hierarchy of victimhood is a complicated and often a conflicted issue for Democrats, given all the factors contributing to their precious identity & gender politics. As an openly gay man, Buttigieg’s candidacy is getting more traction that you might expect for a politician with such a limited resume, and that doesn’t appear to be sitting well with progressive women, who’ve been hammering away at their own perceived glass ceiling. Candidates like the Wicked Witch of the North, Amy Klobuchar, Bubble Brain Gillibrand, even fire spitting Kamala Harris with her very big rollout, haven't been getting as much attention at Buttigieg.

In today’s gender-fluid era, gender, race and sexual orientation just skim the surface of possible distinctions. Does the color of one’s skin trump being a woman, and does being gay rank higher or lower? Is it possible that a married gay white man from South Bend, Indiana is less threatening to some of the voters than a woman or a woman of color women? We'll see. The media is sure to let us know.....

Congressional Caveman: ‘You appear to be white men’

 House Financial Services Committee Member Rep. Al 'Caveman' Green (D -Texas)

Last November, one of America's favorite temporal lobe challenged congress members, Maxine Waters, took time out from yelling 'In Peach 45' to threaten America, saying if the dems retook the House she, as chair of the House Financial Services Committee, would exact revenge against America’s financial sector. Last week she started her clownish inquisition with the heads of some of America's largest banks. First, she made a fool of herself in classic Maxine fashion. Later, her fellow Black Caucus and House Financial committee member, Rep. Al Green, put on an magnificent show of personal ignorance in an attempt to score points, one that should have embarrassed the entire committee. It helped illustrate the dark backward path the democrat party has decided to take the country down.

In a display of racism that is now considered acceptable behavior by elected representatives in post-Obama America, CEOs from seven of the biggest banks in the country were singled out by a black Democrat lawmaker because of the color of their skin. Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) a member of the House Financial Services Committee saw fit to ask the CEOs to confirm their obvious race and gender as he questioning them last Wednesday.
"As I look at the panel, and I’m grateful for your attendance, the eye would perceive that the seven of you have something in common. You appear to be white men. I may be mistaken. If one among you happens to be something other than a white male, would you kindly extend a hand into the air?"
None of the seven raised their hand. Oh, to have a penny for their thoughts as they looked on while the black lawmaker singled them out for the color of their skin.
"This is not a pejorative. You’ve all sermonized to a certain extent about diversity. If you believe your likely successor will be a woman or a person of color, would you kindly extend a hand into the air?"
Again, no one raised a hand. This highly awkward approach would have embarrassed a better man, but undaunted, Green went on badgering those reuctant to play into his political charade.
"For fear that you may not hear me, just raise your hand now so that I’ll know you’re there. Raise your hand, please. All of you."
"Sir, apparently you don’t hear me over on the end. Would you kindly extend a hand into the air if you can hear me?"
"All white men, and none of you, not one, appears to believe that your successor will be a female or a person of color."
After stating "My ancestors were slaves", Green continued his "raise your hand" theme as he questioned the CEOs about the practices of banks from the 19th century in regard to slavery. Mentioning that JP Morgan released information in 2005 that indicating it directly benefited from slavery, Green asked James Dimon, the chairman and CEO of JP Morgan, Chase & Co. to respond.

"I do believe that in 2005 we issued a report about potential transactions that involve slavery between its heritage companies in the 1800s."  Green seemed dismayed the other banks had not found themselves sufficiently guilt-ridden enough to do their own study on dealings of nearly two centuries ago.

The juvenile approach continued as Green asked the bank heads to raise their hands if they "believe that your bank benefited from slavery in some way," and to raise their hands if they did not believe that they benefited. No one played along other than Dimon, who had already acknowledged the report his company produced.

Identity politics, group outrage, color and gender trumps merit. Ladies and Gentlemen, your power drunk, bigoted modern overlords of the democrat party.

“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

Demosaurus Hypocriticus - (Bozo Sapien)

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that democrats and the ivory tower media are making such a fuss about DJT's proposal to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. This the liberals and media should be applauding! Sanctuary cities actively invite illegals to come there for safety, and all the president proposes is sending those cities more of what they said they were willing to take, and he's even throwing in free shipping. After all, Sanctuary city leaders, and apparently indirectly city voters, have been willing to provide the millions of dollars in tax resources to welcome them the past two years. 

Sanctuary cities are indeed the most humane option for the million or so illegals that arrive each year, and their mayors should specifically request receiving illegals for humanitarian reasons and even compete for illegals. The inhuman alternative is releasing illegals to areas unprepared to suddenly handle tens to hundreds of thousands of needy people, which would be inhumane because they would get far less care, less housing, less food, and less medical care than the sanctuary cities. If one illegal is good for a sanctuary city................

What Trump has brilliantly done is applied the fourth of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

The holier-than-thou media and democrat politicans have been lecturing the public for years how illegals are the ideal citizen and no walls or other efforts should be made to stop or limit their crossing into the United States. Yet when the President offers to send them more illegals, they object. These Mayors and governors are currently violating federal law by harboring illegal immigrants and refusing, at the cost of the lives and property of their legal citizens, to report their presence to the federal government.

So why do they object now??  Well, let's suppose the mayor of Oakland or San Francisco opened their doors and welcomed 100,000 illegals a year. Their progressive citizens might initially rejoice and embrace their new residents. But reality would sink in before very long, with massive hikes in taxes, crime, disease and homelessness and all, things that are already apparent in some places.  Residents would eventually revolt. Or maybe the liberals love illegals but just don’t want “them” in THEIR neighborhood (lookin' at you Malibu Babs) which makes them the greatest hypocrites of all time and deserve all possible ridicule and scorn they get from law abiding American people.

Chinese Scientist Work to Help Improve Cable News Network

Chinese scientists have implanted human brain genes into monkeys in an attempt to boost their development and provide insights into the unique evolution of human intelligence. Analysis of the monkeys' behavior and physiology showed they developed in a more human-like fashion, with better short-term memory and a faster reaction time compared to a control group. The genome of rhesus monkeys differs from ours by a few percent. That's millions of individual DNA bases differing between humans and monkeys. Researchers inserted human versions of MCPH1, a gene that scientists believe plays a role in the development of the human brain, into 11 rhesus monkeys. "Our findings demonstrated that transgenic nonhuman primates (excluding ape species) have the potential to provide important -- and potentially unique -- insights into basic questions of what actually makes human unique," the authors wrote.

The monkeys underwent memory tests requiring them to remember colours and shapes on a screen, and were subjected to MRI scans.  The authors said the rhesus monkey, though genetically closer to humans than rodents, is still distant enough to alleviate ethical concerns. However, some questioned the ethics of the experiment.

Impeachment Porn And The State Of Journalism

Ricky Maddow: Moonbat Conspiratorial Rants for a Hateful, Aggrieved, and Ignorant Audience

For 2 years a completely absurd set of allegations presented as fact has dominated the airwaves and paralyzed the executive branch, specifically that the President of the United States of America was 1) a compromised tool of Moscow (New York Times November 29, 2018), 2) had colluded with Russia as a candidate (January 26, 2019), and 3) was an agent of Kremlin (NY Times article January 11, 2019). These falsehoods flashed before our eyes in newspapers, television news shows, social media one-minute stories, and in the political weaponized entertainment industry though numerous Saturday Night Live skits and countless hecklings by late night comedy hosts. Had these stories been classified as paid political advertisements and not “journalism” or “entertainment,” the onslaught of Trump-Russia smears would have represented an unprecedented multi-billion dollar negative ad campaign that would have even strained Michael Bloomberg’s wallet. But peddled as “news” these narratives hearkened back to the propaganda sheets of Pravda and the unintentionally hilarious articles on the North Korean news website.

The investigation into Trump and members of his business and political world has turned up more incriminating evidence on his bureaucratic adversaries in the “deep state resistance” and the governmental institutions, that they’ve turned into a Maginot Line with the guns pointed down Pennsylvania Avenue. The Beltway swamp creatures have been exposed as partisan fraudsters, but what about the national press who have compensated them for promulgating their slanders?

The First Amendment allows the rigged media outlets to profiteer though it does not obligate us to support their antics, nor does it prohibit Americans from justly criticizing them. After eight years of “obey and conform lest you are a racist,” the media has returned to their Bush-era identity of encouraging the most obnoxious “patriotic” dissent imaginable, with no violent language or genitalia foam costume being too extreme.

The entire Russia episode was nothing more than salacious “impeachment porn” (an appropriate analogy considering the involvement of an actual adult movie “performer” in the investigation) intended to drive the audience to an intense frenzy. However the feature concluded not with the desired euphoric climax but abrupt disappointment, leaving their fantasy of seeing President Trump (and his children) perp walked out of the White House in handcuffs unfulfilled.

As The Table Turns.....

Attorney General William Barr is assembling a “team” to investigate the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an official told Fox News on Tuesday. Republicans repeatedly have called for a thorough investigation of the FBI’s intelligence practices and the basis of the since-discredited Russian collusion narrative following the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — and they now appear to have assurances that a comprehensive review was underway.
The rats are scrambling at the FBI and DOJ— and I do mean the Obama-Clinton rats! AG Barr assembles 'team' to look into counterintelligence investigation on Trump campaign in 2016 -Lou Dodds@The Tweeter
William Barr said before a senate committee Wednesday U.S. intelligence agencies engaged in spying directed at the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump.
"I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I am not suggesting that it wasn't adequately predicated. ... I am not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it is important to look at that. And I am not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly."
Progressives are in hilarious full straight-jacket meltdown.......
"HOO BOY. The giant takeaway is that Bill Barr is a fucking right-wing idiot Fox News-infused conspiracy theorist dipshit just like your uncle, and in this scenario, you don't actually love your uncle. Either that, or he plays one really well on TV. 
All of this -- made-up stories about the Deep State sending spies to the Trump campaign, made-up stories about the Obama administration improperly obtaining FISA warrants on Carter Page -- is a collection of conspiracy theories Devin Nunes made up after (ALLEGEDLY!) snorting some hot yacht powder off a sexxxy cow's teat. The Obama administration did not spy on the Trump campaign. They did not "wire tapp" Donald Trump. The warrants on Carter Page were obtained after Page left the campaign (though Page had been on their radar for ages) and no, they were not based solely or even mostly on the Steele Dossier, no matter what Devin Nunes's lie memo tries to insinuate. 
This is all hallucinatory bullshit from people who probably should be examined by the nearest neurologist. WHAT FUCKING MADNESS ARE WE DEALING WITH?"
Discuss among yourselves.....

Leftist "Moral Test" and Intimidation Tactics

A group of organizations have formed a coalition to pressure companies not to hire people who have worked for the Trump administration, including former secretary of DHS, Kirstjen Nielsen, who resigned from her post on Sunday. The group known as “Restore Public Trust”, who claim to be non-partisan, organized the coalition and released an open letter urging the blacklisting of 27 current and former Trump administration officials who were involved with President Trump's border security policies.

The letter,  sent to the chief executive officers of all Fortune 500 companies, states chillingly that the listed individuals "should not be allowed to seek refuge in your boardrooms or corner offices. Allowing them to step off of the revolving door and into your welcoming arms should be a non-starter.” In addition to Nielsen, the list includes former White House chief of staff John Kelly, Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and former DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores. Conspicuously missing from the list are the Obama officials who carried out the same policies at the border.

The Restore Public Trust executive director Caroline Ciccone is a former director of the left-wing advocacy group Americans United for Change, and a former Obama administration staffer. In 2016, Americans United for Change National Field Director Scott Foval was caught on camera suggesting that the AUC paid mentally ill and homeless people to instigate violence at Trump campaign events. "We have mentally ill people that we pay to do sh*t -- make no mistake," Foval is heard saying in a Project Veritas video.

The blacklist letter, according to RPT spokesman Karl Frisch, was a warning shot to “corporate America, who need to think twice about what that will mean for their brand to be associating with somebody who is responsible for one of the most horrific policies this administration put forward and that speaks volumes. Do they want to be famous for this?”

I'd rather be "famous" for trying to instill order at the border under extreme and stressful circumstances than for paying mentally deranged people to start fights at political rallies. But maybe that's just me.

Mayor Pete Just had To Go There, Didn't He......

Mayor Pete and the First Lady of South Bend 

I was thoroughly prepared to (mostly) be nice and just ignore the homosexuality of Mayor Pete Buttgig, the honorable Mayor of South Bend Indiana, as just another one of the multitude of occupants of the Democrat presidential candidates clown car seeking the 2020 nomination. I said I was, until I read this in USA Today:

“That’s the thing that I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand,” Buttigieg said of the vice president, who has opposed same-sex marriage. “That if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.” 
It’s unusual for Democratic presidential candidates to talk about faith as often as Buttigieg does. It’s groundbreaking that he uses his marriage to another man to illustrate his personal relationship with God. Buttigieg gets easy applause lines at Democratic-friendly audiences, as he did Sunday, for criticizing Pence when he talks about being gay. (His first mention of Pence on Sunday, when Buttigieg described coming out while Pence was serving as Indiana’s governor, generated boos and hisses.)....."
He just had to go there. So if he’s going to campaign as the 'homosexual candidate', then we certainly have every right to note his sexual orientation in discussing him. Butt, of course, there’s more: if Mr Buttgig is going to introduce religion into the campaign by criticizing evangelical support for Donald Trump and Mike Pence, then he has also introduced religious criticism of his position concerning Christianity and homosexuality. He might come to regret that.

But I will admit to some amusement at the fact that Mr Buttgig’s wife Chasten Buttigig, gave some guidance on the pronunciation of the candidate’s name: “boot-edge-edge,” “buddha-judge,” “boot-a-judge” and “boo-tuh-judge.” A homosexual male named “booty judge”? It is to laugh. And how long ago was it that we were told that it was nobody else’s business what other people do in their bedrooms?  Seems that nowadays that is something that homosexuals believe they should shout from the rooftop. It seems to me that any expectation of privacy on that matter was ended by Mr. Buttgig himself.

So, we have a Democratic candidate criticizing the religious faith of other people, calling them hypocrites. OK, fair enough! It also means that we can criticize Mr Buttgig’s odd interpretation of Christianity and what the Bible allows. Let’s have at it!

The Ultimate Shakedown

In 2008, the election of Barack Obama was universally hailed as an historic breakthrough event. Great expectations were raised for what was then billed as the beginning of a new “post-racial era.” A decade later these expectations have not been fulfilled, and – worse – have been frustrated by the spread of “identity politics” – the most tribalistic, color - conscious and divisive attitude to dominate the public square since the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965 outlawed discrimination on the basis of skin color.

The reparations demand is pure racism: Recipients will be paid on the basis of their skin color even if, like Kamala Harris, their ancestors were actually slave owners. It will be paid by people who had no historical connection whatsoever to slavery, and it will be paid by the very government that sacrificed 350,000 mainly white (and Christian) lives to abolish slavery and lead the world in doing so. The real agenda of the reparations movement is clear. It is to indict white Americans for what Cory Booker and other leftist demagogues call “America’s original sin.” It is part of the Left’s assault on the Christian founders of America – an assault justified by a completely bogus version of history. Black Africans were not enslaved by white Christians. They were bought at slave auctions in Ghana and Benin where they had already been enslaved by Black Africans. Thomas Jefferson, whose statue is a current target of leftwing ignoramuses, wrote into America’s birth certificate that all men are created equal and have a God-given right to liberty. Within fifteen years of the Declaration most of the northern states had freed their slaves. It took less than a generation to complete the process, but at the horrendous cost of 350,000 Union lives.

The reparations campaign is a campaign to bury the fact that white Americans freed Black slaves who were originally put in chains by Black Africans and Muslims, and that the white Christian males who created this country are responsible for ending slavery and creating the most inclusive, tolerant and equal society on earth. It is a campaign to make Americans ashamed of their country, so that its enemies can more easily destroy it.  It’s demagogues like Sharpton and Harris and every other 2020 presidential hopeful in the Democratic Party who should rightfully be ashamed. - David Horowitz
