Shastina Sandman: California 48th

Published

on

In another example of average Americans coming out and running for office in the wake of Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential election, I spoke with Shastina Sandman, a California entrepreneur, wife, and mother. Ms. Sandman has made it her mission to unseat incumbent Dana Rohrabacher, who has held the California 48th for 30 years. Her support for President Trump and his policies was palpable, and she certainly seems to have the energy to make a good run at the seat.

BW: What made you decide to run for Congress?

SS: My husband is my number 1 fan. He has been urging me to run. Would really need to be a grassroots effort. Have to get on the ground and run. Just because Trump is in office doesn’t mean we can be complacent. We’d be a red state without SF and LA. I am pro-Trump, pro-Constitution, and pro-life. We have to get people in Congress who will support the President’s “America First” agenda and I am one of those.

BW: What qualifications do you feel you have to represent the California 48th?

SS: As a mother, an entrepreneur, and middle class American, I know what Americans struggle with. I can find middle-ground on a variety of issues so we can come together. I’m going to lead with love and not sling dirt. I don’t sling mud even when I see it. I think I can connect with average Americans.

BW: What issues do you feel are most important right now?

SS: Orange County has a big drug problem and a big homelessness problem. We have 3 miles of homeless living on the beach. I’ve found hypodermic needles on my front porch. When everyone thinks of Orange County they think of Newport Beach and largely wealthy and middle-class Americans. The fact is we need to address some of these problems.

I want to improve school safety and legal immigration while enforcing our current immigration laws. We also need reform in our education system. Instead of teaching kids there are 63 genders, we need to teach actual science. Public schools have become liberal indoctrination centers.

BW: What do you think about President Trump’s recent comments about Republicans “being afraid of the NRA” and wanting to impose new restrictions on the 2nd Amendment?

SS: I have no problem with standing up to the NRA. So, if we need to change some things like banning bump stocks we can look at that.

I don’t know why Trump said that but he did. I don’t think the Florida shooter (name redacted) should have been able to get a gun, but that is a failure of government. The local authorities and the FBI failed to use existing legal methods to make certain that the shooter was not able to buy a gun legally.

BW: What do you feel are your opponent’s failings?

SS: Dana Rohrabacher IS the swamp. He’s been in office for 30 years and it was never the intention of the founders for Congress to be a lifelong career.  He even joined the Democrats in voting against the tax cuts that are spurring economic growth and putting more money back in the pockets of average Americans.

BW: What do you want the people of the California 48th to know about you?

SS: I want them to know that I really care and I want to do better for them. It may sound cliché but I want to make a difference. I’m not the swamp. I support Trump, but I can stand up to Trump when I feel he’s wrong too. An example of that is when he advocated allowing hunting for ivory again. I fully oppose this.

Anti-Semite Tom Wright-Piersanti is the true heart of the NY Times

Anti-Semite Tom Wright-Piersanti is the true heart of the NY Times

Progressive journalism is a double-standard wrapped in hypocrisy and served on a plate with no self-awareness. That’s why revelations that NY Times senior staff editor Tom Wright-Piersanti posted several racist and anti-Semitic Tweets in the past came as absolutely no surprise to me when Breitbart broke the story this morning.

The Tweets insulted Jews, Native-Americans, and Hispanics and date back as far as 2009. But even as he scrambles to remove official record of his feelings, the remnant of them remain. Some have grabbed screenshots. We’ll go ahead and post the text from some of his Tweets so the words remain in text-form indefinitely.

I think I just heard him say “Hoes, Hoes, Hoes! Merry Cripmas!” Does anyone know who it could be???

http://bit.ly/QCGfF WEIRD. This woman’s Spanish jumps back and forth between a pleasant Mexican “distinción” and a halting Spanish “ceceo.”


Is Wright-Piersanti a unique case? No. Progressive journalists such as the vast majority on staff at the NY Times have been shielded from scrutiny. It’s not that anyone is actively trying to cover up for the racism or anti-America sentiment that flows freely in newsrooms across the country. It’s that the people who normally engage in investigating people’s history on public sites like social media are searching for conservatives to bash. This is a leftist technique, one that more conservatives should adopt as the cries of “Republicans are racists” continue to be bellowed out by mainstream media.

The saddest part is the NY Times is unlikely to act and leftist media is unlikely to report on this much. If these Tweets were posted by someone at Breitbart or One America News, it would be the top story in the news cycle and every Tweet supporting President Trump by the journalist would be used as evidence for the racism narrative the left is trying to paint about the right. But Wright-Piersanti is not a Trump supporter and neither is the NY Times.

Tom Wright-Piersanti isn’t a one-off case. He’s indicative of the hypocrisy that’s rampant throughout mainstream media as they seek evidence that conservatives are racist while ignoring the racists in the mirror.

XFL unveils teams. Names great. Logos not so much.

XFL unveils teams Names great Logos not so much

The team names are in for Vince McMahon’s XFL, his response to the NFL’s growing dissatisfaction. Before today, the cities were announced in rather large markets, signaling a direct confrontational strategy with the NFL in multiple markets, though in a different portion of the year. The emerging league unveiled its team names and logos this afternoon. The Team names overall seem to be well-received. The logos, in contrast reveal a certain lacking of creativity. The team names and logo judgement are as follows

Dallas Renegades

The logo looks like it came out of a create a team mode on Madden. Not really a fan of the name because a renegade is basically a deserter. Outlaws would have been a better word choice and would sound better because its four syllables, not five.

Houston Roughnecks

This is an excellent team name that pays homage to the community around it. The logo resembles the Houston Oilers, in that they are the same thing, though Roughnecks is more colloquial and blue collar sounding. Overall solid.

LA Wildcats

Hate the team name. It’s 2019 and your team name is the Wildcats? I would joke with my wife when filling out NCAA March Madness brackets about how many Wildcats there were, Kentucky, Villanova, etc. The logo I understand because of the marketability.

New York Guardians

Fantastic name and logo. It kind of has a superhero feel while at the same time a Gothic gargoyle vibe.

St. Louis Battle Hawks

Points for originality. War Eagle was taken. Bird are too generic, but they spiced it up a little bit

Seattle Dragons

It’s risky to go with dragons and pull it off. I think the Seattle Dragons fall short. This logo has also garnered criticism for similarities to UAB.

Image

Tampa Bay Vipers

The logo is a “V” depicting a snake’s eye. Clever, simple, original enough. No complaints. The reptile community is well represented in the XFL.

DC Defenders

The alliteration is the only reason I like this team name. Washington DC does not have a proud military history, getting burned down during the War of 1812, in which the subsequent Battle of Baltimore saved the union. DC Swamp or DC Debt would have paid more accurate respects to the community. better. So again, I don’t get it, but the alliteration works extremely well.

Final Thoughts

That’s the quick rundown of the eight teams the XFL has announced. Compared to the failed AAF, I do not like the team names or logos early as much. The choice naming of the San Antonio Commanders was enough to make me a fan. The Fleet, Apolllos, Hotshots, and Iron were also well-crafted team names. Comparatively, the XFL is generic. But keep in mind the NFL has it’s fair share of bad team names with bad or dull logos. To list a few: Browns, Jets, Giants, Packers. Major League Baseball is also unimmune. So we need to remove the bias that gives the existing team names we have grown accustom to a relative free pass.

The AFF had great team names and great football, but the XFL doesn’t exceed this, but at least they don’t plan to dump scarce money into a failed app. Overall, this announcement was enough to give the league added legitimacy in its daunting quest to challenge the NFL.

After indignant virtue signaling costs billions, Gillette quietly ‘shifts’ away from social justice

After indignant virtue signaling costs billions Gillette quietly shifts away from social justice

Social justice backfired for Gillette. Despite innumerable complaints and an exodus of customers, the razor maker remained fervently proud of their ad campaigns attacking “toxic masculinity” to the point that CEO and president Gary Coombe said it was a “price worth paying.” They’re standing by their ads and are claiming they helped them reach a younger millennial audience, increase brand awareness, and put forward the type of company message they want portrayed.

If losing $8 billion was worth the message, they’re stronger activists than most.

“P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette. For the same period last year,” Reuters reported, “P&G’s net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share.”

Despite the massive loss over the controversial ads. they claim to have no regrets. This claims were made three weeks ago and delivered with bluster in multiple interviews for damage control. This week brought a different tone as they’re now “shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes.”

The new campaigns have already launched in Australia with a slow rollout in the United States expected next month. Here’s the local Australian hero they’re focusing on. Needless to say, he’s not representing a social justice cause, nor is he worried about exuding toxic masculinity.

This is an unambiguous attempt to escape the controversial corner they painted themselves into that cost them billions, but don’t let progressive media know because they’re certain the social justice campaign was wonderful. They’re so certain about this that they’re blaming the loss on men suddenly loving beards. Seriously.

Companies like Gillette are learning being “woke” makes you broke. That’s how business works; alienating half of your customers for the sake of politics is never a good move. Stick to business. Leave social justice to the basement warriors.
