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!
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been doing the leftist media interview circuit recently, pressing his peculiar thesis that professional (i.e., paid) scientists are a superior class of humans whose conclusions are intrinsically beyond reproach and must therefore be accepted blindly by unscientific lunks like you. In each of these interviews, a non-climate scientist asks a series of predetermined questions designed to elicit rehearsed responses from the non-climate scientist Tyson, the upshot of which is that (a) people who question man-made global warming are anti-scientific fools driven by irrational agendas; (b) scientific
It was a classic confrontation last night on Tucker Carlson’s show, as a Hollywood heavyweight faced tough questioning on the consistency of his views. Rob Reiner is a member of the hereditary Hollywood elite, cursed forever by a vivid role that defined him as an actor. Reiner had the smarts and connections to leave acting as principal activity and focus on writing, directing, and producing. He created some classics, including The Princess Bride, Stand by Me, and This is Spinal Tap. He founded Castle Rock Entertainment. This is no dummy, despite his politics. As Donald Trump did, Reiner inherited some advantages
With little need for intelligence reports to do her job, former Obama United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power had an abnormally ravenous appetite for spying, especially when it came to Americans. (snip) To request the unmasking of an American is only supposed to be done in exceptional circumstances, given the potential for Stasi-like abuse of power. Power made it her daily preoccupation even as she was supposed to be doing her United Nations job. And that raises questions of what it was for. Apparently, it was the Trump campaign she was spying on. Yet she never came off as a typical slimy political
How to account for the scorched-earth hatred of Donald Trump? He inspires a darkly fanatical dislike, disapproval, and disgust in his most ardent detractors. He is a distillation for millions of unhappy Americans of all things repugnant, repulsive, and wretched. The fever pitch at which he has been mocked, ridiculed, condemned, and threatened is beyond anything anyone in living memory has been subject to – let alone a sitting American president. (snip) The real-time destruction of the left has been brought about by the wrecking ball that is Donald J. Trump. He represents the razing of everything they stand for
It’s safe to say that none of his many enemies in the global elites anticipated an intellectual challenge from Donald Trump. He doesn’t look or talk or act the way they think an intellectual should. Yet somehow, he has placed them in a box. In his UN debut, he challenged the intellectual basis of the world order they are working towards. He personally addressed many of the political leaders in the audience when he said: …you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first. (Snip) Globalists are enemies of the nation-state. They much prefer a global scale and powerful multilateral
Well, well, well. Hope the "destroy Trump" media enjoys the taste of crow now that it has been revealed that, yes, Virginia, Trump Tower and its occupants who were in contact with both candidate and President-elect Trump, including one Paul Manafort, were in fact wiretapped as Trump claimed. Obama’s DOJ and James Comey were both liars in denying the wiretapping for which Trump was widely mocked (snip) Call it Watergate 2.0, the unthinkable wiretapping of a presidential candidate by the administration of a political opponent. This is the electronic version of the Watergate breakin, something more worthy of
If true, this is a blockbuster, that vindicates one of President Trump’s most famous and most roundly criticized tweets, and which may have far-reaching implications. (snip) The information was fed to Robert Mueller’s team that has been searching for a crime. It was the Comey-led FBI in the Lynch-led DoJ, in the Obama presidency, that reportedly used the FISA Court to obtain a warrant, quite possibly based on the phony dossier, that has provided material to get Manafort and pressure him to find something to squeal about and catch a higher-up. The legitimacy of that warrant now is in question.
Many college kids can hardly write a proper English sentence, never mind a proper essay. Meanwhile, the essay-writing industry is huge, churning out tens of thousands of illegal documents. Naturally, all participants in the scam pretend there´s no scam, and so the scam can go on (Snip) Meanwhile, the college (or the individual teachers) could easily determine when students are handing in material above their abilities. The colleges don´t try very hard. If commonsense safeguards were enforced, the pool of applicants ready for college might shrink tremendously. The money would stop flowing. Some professors would no longer have
Once again, big city Democrat politicians have failed us. A deep societal wound was opened this past weekend in the Show Me State, with Ferguson, the false clarion call of “Hands Up Don´t Shoot,” and the Black Lives Matter marches all still fresh in our memories, another. The acquittal on Friday of a white cop on trial for murder for fatally shooting a black man in 2011 after a high-speed chase was immediately met with demonstrations and violence including attacks on police, property, and the media. That was predictable, but what was equally and sadly on display were incendiary comments
New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes: About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,”
A fascinating drama played out yesterday at Harvard, as campus-based politically correct thinking slammed into reality, and the grown-ups had to set the boundaries back to common sense. All very publicly. (snip)The real powers at Harvard are The Harvard Corporation and The Board of Overseers. They hire and fire presidents, and they control the money. They think in terms of institutional relationships and the long-term health and status of the oldest and wealthiest university in the country, of which they are the custodians. Anything that threatens that must go. That must be what explains this late-night statement from Kennedy School Dean
Twitter cofounder Evan Williams has said: “I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place, I was wrong about that.” Yet, we cannot speak freely, can we? (snip) today, every progressive (read Democrat, liberal, or leftist) has his nose pressed into everybody else’s business lest someone think or say something that might melt a snowflake. We can’t have anyone ever offended, or embarrassed, or in any way made uncomfortable by unapproved thought. It is in this way, the language has changed. Whereas the word “violence” has always meant actions
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.
The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama
ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to
Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put
The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging
Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes
A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
