There is a lot of competition, but MSNBC´s Katy Tur is a strong contender for the title of "Most Obnoxious Media Leftist." In her latest embarrassment, she revealed on Meet The Press Daily a disturbing understanding of what life is like for Americans. To put it bluntly, in her world, politics is the supreme concern, and all life decisions quite naturally accord priority to the political consequences of personal choices. That must be why, without a flicker of hesitation, she could recommend that the Democratic Party simply "recruit" surplus Democrat voters from California to relocate to swing states that voted for
Another thread I read today was lamenting the fact that the Right is not as organized as the left. Why can´t we have huge protests, astroturfed issues etc. This article shows us why. Its not that we lack passion or that our issues don´t resonate. It is simply that we have lives, we do not see every action by every individual through a political lens. Politics is a necesary evil, not a lifestyle.
Every far left movement from the fascists of the 1920´s through the Khmer Rouge has used this everyday politicization as a means to enslave the public. By making everything about politics, the politicians can control everything. The right has always been about the individual, we don´t march as a collective because we don´t think as one. Nor would it be a good thing if we started to.
Katy Turs simplistic observation is simply an absurd example of this phenomena. It sounds so simple, they have all the voters they just need to move them around to where the politicians need them. Notice, she herself has not volunteered to leave the comfortable bubble of Hollywood to even out the voting field in Alabama.
Ideas like this are considered brilliant among soft in the lead liberals in the middle of their 4th gin and tonic. According to rough estimates, it would require a minimum of 25,000 transplant democrat voters in MI and in WI to change an election outcome. That adds up to $ tens of millions just in moving expenses. Katy Tur is super stupid.
FTA "Undertaking this major life change for the sole purpose of helping the Democratic Party places politics (federal politics) way above all other considerations... Control of the federal government becomes the motive for life´s major decisions."
These leftists on MSNBC and the rest of the msm truly are sick, mentally deranged. I used to be skeptical of those on this site and others that kept saying liberalism is a mental illness. I´m now a believer. These progressives are hungry for power and control over every aspect of your life but not theirs of course!
The need not go to the trouble of moving. They just get same-day voter registration passed and bus them in for a quick vote as they did in New Hampshire from Boston in the last election. Simple and cheep.
Actually, it has already happened. North Carolina was a very conservative (even though mostly by democrats) state. Then, big corporations moved leftist families from the Northeast to fill jobs in relocated businesses. Liberal university professors filled the new & expanded universities. This happened all over the south - Georgia, Alabama, Florida, etc. Some of those families lost their leftward leanings as they "assimilated". But not all of them. Even Texas was not immune - especially the Austin area and parts of the Dallas area. Wish it weren´t so - but ´tis.
The Libertarians are trying this in New Hampshire. So far it is not working. We bounce back and forth between Republican and Democrat control, and the state is a mess. The Secretary of State is a Democrat and is being blasted by our Democratic Congressional delegation for being on Trump´s Voter Fraud panel. Respect for opposing views is long gone.
This is happening in the Texas Hill Country. We are being invaded by Californians. As long as they become Texans, no problem, but if they stay liberals and vote Dem, we´re in trouble! Luckily, most that I know, even those from San Fran, act more Texan than us locals!
The irony. So rich it could give you gout. At a fundraiser on September 9, 2016, Hillary Clinton made a soul-baring gaffe. With uncharacteristic candor, she stated that half of all Trump supporters are a "basket of deplorables," that they´re "irredeemable," as well as "racist, sexist homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it." Naturally, with her epic lack of self-awareness (see What Happened book tour, 2017) and a blind spot about herself that rivals a covered wagon´s, she said this adjacent to a banner pimping her slogan, "Stronger Together." Because Hillary Clinton is all about the unifying. I checked. Page 1 of How to
That sinking feeling Al Franken is experiencing is the realization that his career is now a pawn in the fanatical efforts of Democrats to get President Trump out of office. The Democrats would not lose his seat, since Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton can be expected to appoint a Democrat to serve out his term. Franken is not well liked for reasons that should be self-evident: he is as big a jerk in regular life as the infamous picture of him and Ms. Tweeden on the C17 would seem to indicate. The logical steps for getting Trump are clear: Step one, establish
Budding Hollywood actresses do not have to rely on semi-naked fat dudes in expensive hotels for acting tips. Not anymore. Real-life examples of real-life emotions such as despair, abandonment, anguish, and betrayal are easy to find if you know where to look – e.g., local stories of black-on-white violence. Let´s start with some backstory in Chicago. During last year´s election for the Chicago version of district attorney, Kim Foxx was not hiding anything. With loads of cash from George Soros and lots of support from Black Lives Matter, she bragged about how, under her watch, she was going to stop over-policing, halt
It is worth noting that when he went overseas as a USO performer accompanied by Leann Tweeden in December 2006, Al Franken was not professionally identified as a “comedian” – as virtually every current media account has branded him. He was preparing for a run for political office by conducting the flagship program for Air America, the vanguard of the Left’s plan to deprive conservatives of their talk radio dominance. Am I the only person who remembers what a huge and embarrassing fiasco that was? It is not surprising that the mainstream media have consigned it to the memory hole,
Politics, it is often said, is hardball. But sometimes even Major League Baseball pitchers lob a slow floater right over the plate, all but offering the other team for a home run for the taking. Something metaphorically like that sort of pitch has come AG Jeff Sessions’s way, thanks to a Department of Justice Inspector General’s Report. Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation spotted it: More than 100,000 convicted felons or other “prohibited persons” tried to buy guns each year during President Barack Obama’s administration by lying on their applications, but the Justice Department only considered prosecuting about 30
Another thought-leading progressive publication has connected the dots, and realized that Bill Clinton cannot be allowed to skate on his abuse of women. In The Atlantic, Caitlin Flanagan writes a political history of the feminist movement and Bill Clinton’s sexual predation. The sub-headline says it all: Feminists saved the 42nd president of the United States in the 1990s. They were on the wrong side of history; is it finally time to make things right? (snip) The feminist wing of the progressives is on its way toward applying the new standards to Bill and eventually his enabler, Hillary. It will take a
An avalanche of mass defections of advertisers from Sean Hannity’s Fox News program appears to have been staunched – at least for the present. Over the weekend, initially five, and then more, major sponsors were about to bolt. On Monday, the CEO of the company in the forefront of the defections, Keurig, apologized for his company’s threat to quit running its commercials on Hannity’s show. With that move, the tide against Hannity appeared to be turning. At least that is how Hannity positioned the news. Monday was a day of fast-breaking developments, with Hannity’s fans, social media, and Hannity’s four hours
If one reads the original Washington Post article on Judge Moore’s supposed harassment of underage “girls” with an open mind, one will conclude that Judge Moore is completely innocent, and that he is the victim of Fake News. (snip) read the Post article and assume that the reporters wrote the exact truth about what four human females told them (a big assumption, I grant). Then three of the four claim that Roy Moore dated them when they were women, not girls. And not only did they themselves consent to dating Moore, their families consented to their dating Moore. (Actually, according
On Friday, Sean Hannity reignited efforts by enemies of his on the left to take him off the air via putting pressure on his advertisers to dump his show. (snip) At least five companies said over the weekend that they will no longer advertise their products during Fox News’ “Hannity” television show. . . Keurig, Realtor.com, 23 and Me, Eloquii and Nature´s Bounty all pulled their ads from the television show, in response to Fox host Sean Hannity’s coverage of the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Hannity, never one to support boycotts, has not specifically called for
The UCLA basketball players arrested for allegedly shoplifting a pair of sunglasses in a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China have been left behind to face the tender mercies of Chinese justice. (snip) What Chinese justice deserves, and should demand in return for letting off the students with a warning, is a public formal apology from the head of the University of California for failing to prepare the students for their responsibility as representatives of a world-famous university. That would be Janet Napolitano. In the old days before the Chinese Revolution, such an apology would involve the penitent individual kneeling on
I am cheered by a story from Friday that seems to have received little notice. (snip) The allegation that Oberlin officials knew or should have known that racism was not a factor in the arrests, and yet allowed and facilitated students in deliberately damaging the business future of the bakery, should open the door to punitive damages. The purpose of punitive damages is deter future misbehavior. Therefore, the sum awarded as punitive damages needs to be big enough to matter to the defendant. Oberlin College enjoys an endowment of over $800 million, or almost $300,000 per student, which will sound mighty
So far, there has not been much holding of Bill Clinton to account by progressives, despite the change in zeitgeist for sexual predation by the powerful. Even though it’s very fashionable on the left today to hold the founders of our country to present day standards. But the inevitable is happening. At first a few progressives start mentally applying the post-Weinstein ethic to Bill Clinton. In the process, they eventually have to reflect on their own past and regret their support for him throughout Kenneth Starr’s revelations, impeachment, and beyond. But that will take a long time. But if they don’t publicly
LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China for shoplifting last week, said "who?" when asked about President Trump´s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump´s role. "What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” (Snip) Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses."
One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she
Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy. (Snip for video)[Clinton] said she found “horrifying” the intimation he would
Civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, 76, has been diagnosed with Parkinson´s disease. Jackson made the announcement in a letter and said he first noticed physical changes about three years ago. The disease also affected his father. Parkinson´s is an incurable neurological disorder that can cause tremors, stiffness and difficulty balancing, walking and coordinating movement. ´My family and I began to notice changes about three years ago,´ Jackson wrote in a statement. ´After a battery of tests, my physicians identified the issue as Parkinson´s disease, a disease that bested my father.´ ´Recognition of the effects of this disease on me has been painful, and
NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?" Trump
NEW YORK — Kirsten Gillibrand is having a moment, whether she meant to or not. Going where no other prominent Democrat had before on Thursday evening by declaring that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the New York senator and potential 2020 presidential contender yet again found herself the face of a national conversation with the potential to dominate headlines and divide her party. At a time Democrats are desperate to keep the focus on accusations against President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Gillibrand’s stand shocked even some of her close allies. They
A Democratic congresswoman says she was sexually assaulted by a “prominent, historical” senator in the 1980s — and “everyone on Capitol Hill knew” that he was a harasser. “Historical figure, hand kept going up the leg, I took it off. A women member was at the table, recognized what was happening, and said, ‘switch places,´” Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell told CNN. (Snip) Dingell said it happened in her first year of marriage to Rep. John Dingell, whom she wed in 1981. But despite the 36-year time gap, Dingell said she’s still afraid to name the prominent perv.
Apparently, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un had a unique idea for farmers when they fertilize their crops, and it’s causing a wave of parasitic infections across the country: Use human excrement.According to Yahoo News, in 2014 Kim Jong-un instructed farmers to mix human feces with animal waste and organic compost to make fertilizer for their fields. Yahoo notes, “With a lack of livestock to provide animal fertilizer, agriculturists poured the human excrement, also known as ‘night soil,’ on their fields.”Choi Min-Ho, a professor at Seoul National University College of Medicine who specializes in parasites, told Reuters, “Although we do not
The Department of Justice will soon commence an investigation to determine whether there should be an investigation (you read that nonsense correctly) of a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation and a company called Uranium One. It appears that FBI decisions made during the time that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for espionage will also be investigated to see whether there should be an investigation to determine whether she was properly investigated. (Again, you read that nonsense correctly.) Only the government can relate nonsense with a straight face. Here is the back story. When President Donald Trump fired FBI Director Jim Comey last
WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those
Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a white house briefing today after a week of explosive sexual allegations against Judge Roy Moore, Democrat Al Sharpton and more Hollywood stars.During the briefing American Urban Radio Networks correspondent asked her about Hillary Clinton’s worried remarks on President Trump. It was a lob ball and Sanders hit it out of the park. April Ryan: I was talking to Hillary Clinton today about the president’s past and she said, “Look I worry about everything from his past because it tells you how he behaves in the present and the future.” What do you say to that as it
Gov. Chris Christie refrained from saying "I told you so" when he introduced Ivanka Trump at an appearance in Bayville earlier this week. But he had every right to, especially when it comes to the recent developments concerning his old rival Jeff Sessions. During the presidential campaign last year, the governor of New Jersey and the then-Senator from Alabama were among the first prominent Republicans to come out for Donald Trump. At one point in that campaign, Trump said Christie would make "a great attorney general" in the event he won the election. Trump went on to win, but Christie lost
