Social Media Pearl Clutching and CNN's Iranian Retaliation Pregame Show

I am still trying to wrap my head around all the crazy reactions from dropping one on Iranian General Soleimani this past weekend. Whether it’s the hilarity of comparing Ilhan Omar’s comments about 9/11 as “some people did something” against her calling a drone strike on an Iranian who trained troops to carry out terrorist operations in foreign countries an “outrage” or seeing the reactions on the other side clutching their pearls because any military action obviously means we are going in to a full scale war, there is literally no in-between.

Now that social media has taken over is obviously having the effect that everyone feels a need to have the most emotional and least rational reaction possible and the hotter the take, the better.  I think in large part, my biggest problem is that I just can’t bring myself to even pretend to care as much as these people do.  I don’t care that some Iranian general got splattered on an Iraqi street, Iran is an awful country that finances terrorism worldwide, good riddance to anyone involved with their regime.

Democrats have decided that the woke take would be to repeat Iranian propaganda.  It is a fascinating situation since the Democrats claimed to be so concerned over Russia’s influence on elections, they were ready to start WWIII because of Facebook memes following the 2016 elections, but are sounding the alarm about Trump putting down like a rabid dog an Iranian general because they view it as unnecessary escalation.  Consider that for a moment, the Democrat party accuses Trump of directed policy that only benefits him politically, but they wanted war with a country who made fun of them on Twitter, and released true emails they wrote which disgusted the American people, but killing a man who lead militias that attacked our U.S. embassy was a bridge too far.

What I don’t get is how the Democrats actually think it’s a good idea to shill for Iran to “get Trump”.  There must be a certain point where these people would look in a mirror and realize just how ridiculous they sound.  The first thing you should realize is how many times since Trump has been President that the mainstream media has promised us we were heading in to WWIII.

It was supposed to happen when we launched missiles into Syria, it was supposed to happen when Trump called Kim-Jung Un “little rocket man”, they probably even said it was going to happen because of the Southern border at some point so I would advise anyone who suddenly thinks that the leftist media is speaking in good faith when they talk about WWIII that they reevaluate how much credit they should be giving to them.  The past week has given us abundant examples of how the media  hate Trump with such burning intensity that they are willing to lionize and mourn a man who was responsible for the deaths of at least 600 Americans, as well as for a great deal more terrorist activity.

A Grossly Disproportionate Response To Irrational Fears

Sandy Hook Promise, founded by parents of some of the kids killed in Newtown, rolled out a pretty disgusting piece of propaganda in the form of a public service announcement today. The online ad, titled "Back-To-School Essentials," is a dark twist on back-to-school supplies, featuring kids enjoying the nice things their parents got them for school.

"We're trying to unite people in the common good of saving kids' lives, as opposed to saying we should ban guns," the chief creative officer at the advertising agency that created the Sandy Hook Promise spot told The New York Times. "It's not about picking a side and defending it."

That is obviously not true. Sandy Hook Promise and its allies have picked a side. It's the one that favors overreacting to an objectively tiny but emotionally resonant danger. It's a side so confident in its own virtue and good sense that it cannot imagine how any decent, reasonable person could disagree. Your son or daughter is much more likely to die going to and from school then they are at school for any reason.

OH, and don't forget the back to school clothes.

Infested: Leftist Snowflake's Newest Trigger Word

"Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA..........As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess." - DJT


These people are so propagandized in identity politics that they take a literal rodent infestation and apply it to and for their own propaganda. That is sick, they are literally psychologically sick. It is beyond sad.

Democratic Socialism - Communism for Slow Learners

Denver City Council Member Candi CdeBaca 

When Barky Obama proclaimed a "Fundamental Transformation of America" most took it as a cultural reference. They were correct. Just look at the fabric of America 10 year past. We are now bombarded with the homosexual lifestyle and interracial couples on television, and all out war on white males in advertising and media. But some took his statement differently.

The college educated of the Obama years were spoon fed the downside of capitalism. Sighting as the ideal alternative, European Democratic Socialism. Of course, the downside of this system was passed over. Sure, in the northern counties, European healthcare is quite good, as opposed to the British disaster of National Health Care we hear so much about.

Having grown up in a northern European country, I can assure you it is sufficient for it's people. What is glossed over is a system where the average citizen does not own their own home, few own cars unless for business, and have little say so where their children attend school. Outside of the well-off, the government is the landlord. Public transportation and education, primary and Higher Ed. are free. The average European lives quite well, with much more leisure time than we here in America. It has also created a culture easily controlled, through TAXES.

The economic landscape in America as seen by the left is horrifying to them. They control almost every aspect of our culture, but not our economic philosophy and practice. We are now endanger of that. With the rise of Bernie sanders as a legit presidential candidate in 2016, media promotion of AOC and her Black and Hispanic gal pals, the most recent, Candi CdeBac. Voters had better start listening closely at what these people are advocating.  

CdeBaca, who is an avowed member of the Democratic Socialists Of America (the same communist organization that has blessed America with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) scored an upset in a runoff election after her appeal to the lowlifes, chiselers, and stoners who are drawn to promises of free stuff and state punishment of their oppressors. Her upset victory marks the most significant shift in Denver leadership in over 30 years.
“I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, and I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new. 
I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources , and whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary.”
While the media largely glosses over these fanatical statements, if not outright glorifying them as in the case of AOC and voters remain tuned out, America is only a few elections away from sliding down the slope into a totalitarian style socialism. They are not advocating a European style democracy.  And as no less an expert than Vlad Lenin once famously remarked, the goal of socialism is communism.

I Think We Might Be Building a Wall in the Wrong Place

I never went to summer camp. I grew up in the Old World, surrounded by the wonders of the past at hand to explore during summers. But I'm familiar with the concept. That's what threw me when I saw the article by Jeff Reynolds at PJMedia, "Summer Camp to Train Grade School Kids to Be Antifa Activists". In his words "There's so much wrong here it's hard to know where to start."

"I'm so old I can remember when disseminating communist propaganda in public schools was frowned upon. The first thing that struck me, before anything else, was the mask-clad, fist-raising elementary school kids in the illustration. 
Teaching incoming 4th-8th-graders how to riot, become members of antifa, and join a communist revolution seems a bit much—even for Portland, Oregon. 
Notice the star on the mask and the raised fist. Classic imagery from the USSR, China, and other violent Marxist revolutions in the 20th century. One might immediately think of the Brown Shirts, except that Nazis and antifa hate each other. Antifa formed in the 1930s to oppose the rise of the Nazi party and to try to bring a Marxist revolution to Germany. Rather, the imagery is eerily reminiscent of the Vladimir Lenin All-Union Pioneer Organization, or Pioneer Youth. Lenin established this organization to replace the Boy Scouts, which he outlawed after the Bolshevik revolution....."
But According to the Budding Rose website:
Budding Roses is a volunteer-run collective of educators, students, and activists who provide free social justice summer camps and year-round workshops for Portland-area youth in 4th-8th grade.
So, what's wrong with fighting for social justice, you say?
"Budding Roses received funding from the 'Black Rose Anarchist Federation'. Notice that they use the same graphic as the summer camp"

"In any event, you can't tell me that we're not in a war for the soul of our culture. The Marxist revolutionaries are now reaching into our elementary schools to recruit ever younger comrades for the front lines. 
On a side note, the DSA in Portland has announced that they will challenge Democrat legislators in next year's primary over an unwillingness to go far enough left for their tastes. Mind you, Portland Democrats tilt to the left of Trotsky, so this will shape up as a battle royale to rival the craziest stuff advocated by AOC and others." - READ MORE

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.

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.

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.

Red Flags, Red Flags Everywhere....

As soon as Christine Blasey Ford was identity as accuser of Judge Kavanaugh, red flags popped up everywhere. It didn’t take long for people to poke holes in her story from over 30 years ago. The one thing that stands out is Ford’s presumption that she thought Kavanaugh was going to rape her or even kill her…This is conjecture on her part, but now the media has jumped on the “rape” word and moved the ball down the field to accuse Kavanaugh of attempted rape and even attempted murder. If this is supposed to have happened 36 years ago, Brett Kavanaugh (53) would have still been a minor. 

Ford claims she was reluctant to come forward with her accusations. Yet, when Brett Kavanaugh’s name was first raised as a possible candidate for the nomination, she contacted both her Congresswoman, Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) and the Washington Post tip line. Kavanaugh had not even received the nomination and she had already written a letter to politician and contacted a major newspaper. Does that sound like someone who is wrestling with a decision? The version told now has changed from the version told in 2012 to her therapist and once again the media is complicit with the Democrats in their effort to smear a man who has spent his entire life as an accomplished judge and citizen.

Red Flags? Let's look at few important ones shall we:
  • Judge Kavanaugh has gone through 6 FBI background checks. Came through clean.
  • Christine Ford scrubbed her social media accounts of her activism before revealing herself. Ford, has donated money to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and Friends Of Bernie Sanders, and other leftist organizations.
  • Ford’s attorney is a self-described Anti-Trump Resistance activist. 
  • It was reported that Brett Kavanaugh would be Romney’s first choice for SCOTUS if elected in 2012. That is when Ford suddenly told of the incident with Kavanaugh in couples therapy. It appears as though Ford recovered her memory at an opportune time.
  • Judge Kavanaugh’s mother presided over the bankruptcy trial of Christine Blasey Ford’s parents. Judge Kavanaugh’s mother ruled against the Batey parents.
Democrats have reached an all time low in their attempts to destroy anyone in their path. For Democrats, the ends justify the means…

People Would Rather Watch Bizarre Theories About Space Aliens Building Pyramids Than CNN.

I know this probably doesn't come as a great surprise to anyone who has tuned into any cable news as of late. Lowly CNN continues to circle the bowl as it plummets even further in the ratings, finishing a distant seventh place behind HGTV, USA, the History Channel, and even TBS and it's 80's movie reruns in the most recent ratings. CNN’s direct competitors, Fox News and MSNBC, easily put the cable news channel loser in the weeds.

CNN’s ace primetime lineup hosts Anderson Cooper and Fredo Cuomo have to be biting their pillows at night being beaten handley by the History Channel which includes show like Ancient Aliens, which delves into the conspiracy theories about space aliens and the illuminati breeding reptilian mind reading shapeshifting pyramid builders and stuff. The History Channel had 1.06 million viewers in primetime while CNN scored 992,000 average viewers, most of whom were probably stuck at an airport with nothing else to watch. The network didn't fare much better in the ratings for its daytime programming, finishing in sixth place, lagging far behind Fox News, MSNBC, and Spongebob Squarepants.

Comedians Have Totally Ruined The Art of Political Humor

I recently read that The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, who some say is funny(?) had used his show to make a preachy, lengthy speech about the nature of national identity, arguing that he’s right to celebrate the French World Cup players as both French and African. Why anyone would really care is beyond me. Then I came across an article in The Atlantic that argued the present crop of comedians see themselves (and also seen by their mostly ill-informed millennial audience) as the new public intellectuals, fashioning themselves not just as joke-tellers, but as truth-tellers, as intellectual and moral guides through the cultural debates of the moment. Yeah, let that sink in. 

In the past,  philosophers and political theorists held a public role of guiding national debates and parsing the nuances of current affairs. Nowadays, narcissistic comedians have appointed themselves to increasingly taking on that responsibility, but not doing a very good job.

Comedy is no less powerful a weapon today than in earlier decades, but what has changed is the environment and audiences that comedians address. Just as politics has become more partisan, so too has culture more broadly jaded and resistant to any ideas of which they don't completely agree. Comedians today are predominantly on the left of the political spectrum and cater to an audience that shares the same views.  More and more comedians are losing the joke part altogether. Having become political comedians, they’re dropping the comedy, offering up instead propaganda, goofy skits and caustic sarcasm strained through a twisted filter of the news. They care not if what they say is based in truth, they're "comedians", it need not be true if they oppose their object of scorn.

Comedians are becoming, as their like minded comrades of the media, straightforward leftist commentators, live action versions of the more vile left wing websites, while nightly their ill-informed audiences lap up their half-truths and clap like trained seals when the Applause Sign lights up.

If They Keeps This Up, They’re Going to Get Somebody Killed

We've already seen violent full-blown media driven liberal hate acted out at a baseball diamond in DC in an attempt to murder in mass Republican politicians. The media downplayed it as "an act of mental illness" and no Democrat, not one, took to the microphone and said hey it's time to settle down people and solve our differences the right way. Not One.  And now the fully rabid political left having been pushed into the streets by the media's ridiculous and irresponsible Hitler rhetoric and comparisons of illegal alien children to kids murdered at Auschwitz, along with the unhinged freak Maxine Waters continuously throwing around words like resist & revolt, the possibility that someone is going to end up dead is every increasing.

Following harassment targets like a Presidential Cabinet Secretary as she dined at a D.C. restaurant and the subsequent harassment by  surrounding of her home, a liberal fanatic restaurant owner refusing to serve the White House Press Secretary and the menacing of the Attorney General of Florida by a spitting hate mob at a movie theater, along with fury over a lost election have set the conditions for another tightly wound lunatic to spill blood. 
“And so, let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere." - Maxine Waters
This is dangerous escalation by a deranged and militant political left that has been instigated by the media and emboldened by those with hate coursing through their veins who dominate and influence via the social media platforms. Harassment is now the newest political tool of the left. And its but a matter of time before the violent tendencies of another leftist comes out.

Silicon Valley Overlords Would Prefer to Silence You

 Moneyed Proglodytes and Silencing of the Right

Great read says the San Francisco based CEO of Twitter of an article titled 'The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War' that pretty much advocates eradication of the right. You know, the same dude deciding who American gets to hear from and who America doesn’t, and believes there’s no bipartisan way forward at this juncture in our history  

If you have high blood pressure, don’t bother reading it. Let me sum it up for you: Republicans are very evil. Too evil to tolerate. They need to be shut out of government, and all political issues. Their opinions and ideas, and those of the people who vote for them, must be banished from all thought and action. Conservatism must be eradicated in all forms so we can have a green energy utopia where no one has gender or pronouns or guns and there’s a chicken in every pot, alive and well and taking a bath because everyone is a super woke vegan who hates the whites.

Exaggeration? Here's a taste:
"Now the entire Republican Party, and the entire conservative movement that has controlled it for the past four decades, is fully positioned for the final takedown that will cast them out for a long period of time in the political wilderness. They deserve it. Let’s just say what needs to be said: The Republican Party over the past 40 years has maneuvered itself into a position where they are the bad guys on the wrong side of history. For a long time, they have been able to hide this fact through a sophisticated series of veils, invoking cultural voodoo that fools a large enough number of Americans to stay in the game.' 
The Republican Party is the party of climate change denial. Trump is the denier-in-chief, but there are 180 climate science deniers in the current Congress (142 in the House and 38 in the Senate), and none of them are Democrats. The Republican Party for the past 40 years has mastered using dog whistles to gin up racial divides to get their white voters to the polls. Trump just disposes of niceties and flatly encourages white nationalists, bans Muslims, walls off Mexicans, and calls out “shithole” countries."
This argument for one party rule, with overt references to an actual civil war while claiming to be only about a theoretical or non-physical one, is awful popular right now among leftists. You know, the ones who put Democracy on all the signs they use to protest in favor of government’s fist turning a little more iron. Democrats, who even when out of the political majority can still decide how bathrooms work in your state and whether or not you’re allowed to use a particular word.

Social media matters, y’all. You can be old and out of it and pretend it doesn’t and turn your nose up at it, but it was instrumental in electing Trump. And the Democrats know it too, that’s why they are always ranting about Russian “bots”. And Twitter is the most immediate way to communicate in social media. For a lot of bloggers and journalists and right wing activists, it’s a direct line of communication. Considering conservatives are shut out of the mainstream press about 99 percent of the time, it’s one of the ONLY lines of communication to the public. And the wealthy leftist who runs The Tweeter thinks we need a one party system, crushing decent and cutting Republican values out of society by force if necessary, is a pretty neato idea.

Kurt Schlichter has an interesting take on this story over at TownHall.

Did Anyone Happen to Notice?

The Little Bald Head Latin Mutt was Wearing a Cuban Flag 
on Her Jacket Sleeve Yesterday.... 

Plato warned us 2,500 years ago that democracies decay into demagogic dictatorships. The nation’s founders took that lesson to heart and created a republic of limited powers and constitutional rights, not a democracy. John Adams wrote, “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy…. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty.”

Our republican institutions are decaying into democratic demagoguery right before our very eyes. Not long ago, it would have been unimaginable for hundreds of thousands of people to be in the streets demanding the abridgment of a constitutionally enumerated right.

But here we are.

Insufferable Anti-Gun Geeks and Hollywood Celebrities Just Don’t Care Much For Your Constitutional Rights

In case you haven't heard, today is National F*ck The Constitution Day as being celebrated by thousands of uninformed teenagers and ignorant leftist across the country. The March for Our Lives rallies nationwide are protesting the NRA and our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms in reaction to a criminal breaking the law. But for some reason nobody is saying, “Hey a bad guy did a bad thing, let’s punish the good people” like celebrities.

No, they are out in full force supporting the suppression of our most important civil right. George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, and whole host of wealthy leftist entertainers have jumped the publicity bandwagon and have donated unknown amounts of money to the anti-gun movement, mainly because it gets their name in the news and makes them sound caring. They have even been joined by none other than the usually stridently apolitical Taylor Swift. 

As for Cloony, he doesn’t hate America anymore. He did, but those brave anti-gun Parkland high school students have made him finally proud of his country. The facts that this country allows a goony-looking dude with a big chin to become a sex symbol or a guy who can’t act to become a millionaire in the film biz were nothing to celebrate, but now that some insufferable ignorant teenagers want to get rid of a Constitutional right, he is finally proud to call himself an American.

Clooney and his wife Amal (spellcheck keeps trying to make this “anal”) have already given $500,000 to the anti-gun protest. This is actually quite a feat for these anti-gun students, to get Clooney to shelve his Trump Derangement Syndrome long enough to briefly not hate America. Under normal circumstances Clooney wouldn’t be proud of America until another democrat becomes President, which the way liberals are alienating most people these days, could be decades. This is how liberals are. They don’t love America all the time, which means they don’t love this country at all. 

If the only reason why you are proud of the US is because your political party occupies the White House, your pride is a lie. That’s not patriotism; it’s fanboyism. The fact that Clooney is only proud of America because teenagers are protesting the 2nd Amendment right of gun ownership also makes him a giant shithead.

I would be interested to know who is controlling all this money being donated to the movement. One thing is for sure here, those who march in the streets do not represent the majority of Americans. And America is not ruled by AstroTurf movements and mob rule. Now get off my lawn!

Matt Damon Is Pissed and He's Leaving You!

Haven't we heard it time and time again.  Hollywood "Stars" shooting their mouths off about leaving the country if certain politicians win election. We heard it when Bush ran, when Romney ran, and again, believing there was no chance in hell they'd actually have to back it up, laughingly shot their mouths off during the months leading to Trump's victory. What we haven't heard is a whole lot of the wealthy pretenders and self-appointed moral superiors announcing they're following through on their threats. We lookin' at you Whoopie.......

Enter Matt Damon, the anti-gun star of the gun-wheeling Jason Bourne movies who announced that he would "move to Mars" if Trump won. The line was a kinda-sorta word play on his then-recent "The Martian." Now we're learning that while he's not going to mars for real with Elon Musk, he is making good on his promise to leave.

According to Page Six, Damon is so fed up with Trump and people like you, that he's moving to the beautiful gun-less paradise of Australia, where he reportedly has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales.
“Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia” because the activist actor disagrees with Trump’s policies. The president’s frequently butted heads with liberal Hollywood A-listers including Meryl Streep. He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids."
It also gives Damon a chance  to escape the shit pile he stepped in with his not so well received comments about the wave of sexual assault allegations shaking Hollywood. 

The hollywood hypocrite is a staunch proponent of  gun control and gun bans. As he told an Australian crowd in 2016, he wants to ban all firearms in "one fell swoop"...just like Australia:
“You guys did it here in one fell swoop [in 1996] and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” Mr. Damon said during a promotional engagement in Sydney for the movie "Jason Bourne."
We'd like to bid Matt Damon a Fond addio, Au revoir, Tot ziens.  We hope he cleans up his Harvey Weinstein mess one day, and we do thank him for sticking to his guns promises.

Bill Maher Reminds Leftist Their Media Are Liars and BS Artist

Every once in a while a little ray of light will hit Bill Maher’s brain. It’s always brief and fleeting. As rare as it may be, it does occasionally happen.
"No wonder fake news resonates so much with Trump fans, because so much of it is fake. It’s just nonsense meant to keep you perpetually offended with an endless stream of controversies that aren’t controversial, and outrages that aren’t outrageous because places like the Huffington Post and Buzzfeed and Salon make their money by how many clicks they get. Yes, the people who see themselves as morally superior are are actually ignoring their sacred job of informing citizens of what’s important, and instead sowing division for their own selfish ends. Hey, wait, isn’t that what Russia was doing to us? Yeah, it is. And we have to stop both of them from using us as the cocks in their cock fights......” 
Case in point:
