Mainstream media uses smoke and mirrors to tell us believe Kavanaughs accusers but not Ellisons

Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Representative Keith Ellison each have women accusing them of abuse. Kavanaugh’s accusations from over three decades ago can only be judged on their he-said-she-said merits. To stay consistent with their leftist narrative, some on mainstream media are attempting to say the same thing about Ellison’s accusations.

The differences between the two are striking. There is literally nothing other than the word of the alleged victims to support the Kavanaugh accusations. Meanwhile, Ellison’s primary accuser, Karen Monahan, has several documents, previous mentions on social media, and an unreleased video that some have seen which allegedly proves Ellison abused her.

At best, leftist mainstream media outlets want you to consider the two accusations as equivalent. Most, however, still choose to defend Ellison, attack his accuser, or pretend like the accusations don’t exist.

Few on the left are calling for an investigation of Ellison while nearly everyone on the left wants Kavanaugh investigated. Here’s the thing. There’s very little left to investigate on Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, his primary accuser, didn’t tell anyone about the alleged incident for three decades. There is no physical evidence possible because she doesn’t remember where the party took place or when it happened. For Ellison, on the other hand, there is plenty to investigate from the 2016-2017 series of alleged abuses.

Here’s a piece on Vox that tries very hard to equate the two and paint Ellison’s accusation as a he-said-she-said like Kavanaugh’s:

2018 midterms: the latest developments in abuse allegations against Keith Ellison, explained

https://www.vox.com/2018/9/25/17901120/keith-ellison-abuse-allegations-minnesota-ag-karen-monahanWhile Monahan released dozens of text messages in August that she and Ellison sent to each other, they don’t specifically corroborate violence or verbal abuse. Some texts are obviously cropped in the middle of an exchange. And though she has documentation of reporting past domestic abuse to a doctor, the doctor doesn’t document any physical evidence to corroborate her claim.

In other words, the situation between Ellison and Monahan is essentially still a “he said, she said” situation where she has accused him of abuse and he has categorically denied everything. Ellison so far is not feeling the pressure to leave his race, even though he recently told a local Minnesota news station he could not be sure more allegations wouldn’t come out.

If more Americans were aware of the way mainstream media attempts to manipulate our perspectives through shining bright spotlights on certain issues while burying others, it would be easier to force them to stop. Unfortunately, most are willing to take the headlines and snippets they read at face value without applying any critical thought to it all.

This is all one big joke on America. When credible accounts against Democrats are dismissed but even the slightest doubts on Republicans are to be believed, the challenge before the nation is one of discernment.

5 takeaways from the 2020 Democratic hopefuls poll

Published

on

When the outrage about Obamacare prompted many Republican lawmakers to book trips to Iowa in 2010 and 2011, the field was decent with Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, and Newt Gingrich making the most waves early. Following the 2014 midterms, new faces popped up and it appeared the GOP would have an embarrassment of riches with Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul being the stalwart newcomers who would rejuvenate the party before the ultimate newcomer hit the scene.

The Democratic Party is lost. This is apparent when you look at the results of a CNN poll released today:

2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates

In their quest to find the next Barack Obama, the best Democrats can do right now is tap his 75-year-old running mate. The former Vice President will be 17 days from his 78th birthday when election day rolls around in 2020. That says a lot and leads our list of five takeaways from this early poll.

Here they are:

1 – A 77-year-old white guy is the top choice for a party that blames “old white guys” for all the nation’s problems

Wouldn’t it be ironic if they did nominate Biden? Every day we hear in mainstream media from leftist pundits how just about every problem can be blamed on an ancient Caucasian patriarchy that needs to be booted from power. Yet, they seem to favor the epitome of the ancient Caucasian patriarchy in Biden.

He seems to be as healthy and mentally sharp as anyone could expect after three quarters of a century. Many have speculated that he would be President today had he thrown his hat in the ring as so many Democrats wanted in 2016.

Despite the enthusiasm behind him, I find it extremely unlikely, nearing the realm of impossibility, that Biden will end up running, let alone becoming the nominee. He’s simply the most recognized name right now among the Democrats. Of course, we could also make the same observations about the second name on the list, Senator Bernie Sanders, who is a year older than Biden.

2 – Spartacus isn’t making an impact yet

Only 1 in 20 Democrats polled want to see Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker as the nominee. As an eloquent African-American Senator from a left-leaning state, he draws the easiest surface-level comparisons to President Obama.

So far, those surface comparisons haven’t put him on the Democrats’ map. That is likely to change as he seems to be one of the most aggressive early campaigners. He used his time questioning Justice Brett Kavanaugh from the Senate Judiciary Committee to get nomination face time, but so far that hasn’t resulted in much additional name or face recognition. It’s early and he will likely be a frontrunner, but at least for now he’s still nowhere.

3 – 4% want Beto O’Rourke who is about to lose his Senate race

When the next sessions on Capitol Hill start, Representative Beto O’Rourke will likely be sitting on his couch still trying to figure out what went wrong. He had support from celebrities. Leftist magazines pointed to him as the next JFK. He raised more funds than any Senate candidate in history.

Unless something crazy happens, he’s going to lose big to Senator Ted Cruz.

It would seem his national popularity is greater than his Texas popularity. Losing doesn’t eliminate him altogether; Rick Santorum lost a couple of elections before coming in second for the 2012 GOP nomination. Still, it wouldn’t behoove the Democrats to push O’Rourke to run against President Trump if he can’t even beat Senator Cruz.

4 – Some actually take Michael Avennati seriously

The fact that lawyer Michael Avenatti is on the list is ridiculous. The fact that 1% of Democrats want to see him run is hilarious.

If he’s the solution to the Democrats’ woes, they’re in much bigger trouble than anyone knows.

5 – Entertainers on not on the list, but should be

Looking into my crystal ball following President Trump’s victory in 2016, I saw a strange face pop up. The Democrat I thought could beat the President in 2020 is someone nobody is talking about. Actor George Clooney, who has been quietly feeling out donors since late 2016, is a name that will pop out of nowhere in 2019 if indeed he chooses to run for President.

Another name not on the list is Oprah Winfrey. It will all depend on whether she is serious about her ambition to change the world from the top down, but if she chooses to run, she’ll be the contrast to President Trump the Democrats would love to see.

Last but not least on my list of entertainers who could win the nomination is Dwayne Johnson. The Rock is extremely intelligent and outspoken, plus he is universally liked. If he were to win, could you imagine him and Vladimir Putin holding a summit?

With the midterm elections almost upon us, speculating about 2020 is a fun distraction. As backwards as Democrats have been this election cycle, the next one is shaping up to set records in lunacy.

#WalkAway: True Liberals have had enough of the Socialist-Left

WalkAway True Liberals have had enough of the Socialist-Left

The true advocates of Liberty have had enough of the Left’s group-think, violence, vitriol, censorship, socialism, Marxism, and incivility.

The founder of the #Walkaway movement Brandon Straka has had enough of the Left and it’s liberticidal ways. In a recent video from the Daily Caller, he talked about how the Democrats Are Jumping Ship Over Kavanaugh Smear.

He says hundreds of people have reached out to him since the Justice Brett Kavanaugh battle started, and he began receiving more video testimonials and messages from people who say they will now vote Republican because of the smear campaign launched against Kavanaugh.

The #Walkaway march on Washington October 26-28

In addition to this he is leading a march on Washington to take place October 26-28, as reported in the Daily Wire.

Speakers for the event include Dinesh D’Souza, Stacey Dash, Joy Villa, Mason Weaver, Buzz Patterson, and others. Dave Rubin, Herman Cain, Tomi Lahren, and Antonio Sabato Jr. cannot attend in person, but have provided videotaped remarks.

Additional details can be found at WalkAwayMarch.com. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased at Eventbrite.

The official statement provided for the event is as follows:

The #WalkAway™ Campaign, founded by former liberal Brandon Straka, is a true grassroots movement. Until now, it has been a social media movement, dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the Democratic Party has become. Some left long ago, while many have recently been “red-pilled”. Some have wanted to leave for some time but have feared the consequences they might suffer from friends or family if they were to walk away. The Campaign’s membership currently exceeds 370,000 patriots on all social media platforms combined.

This is a movement of Patriots from all walks of life who share something very important in common. WE ARE ALL AMERICANS and we will not surrender our country to: group-think, identity politics, violence, vitriol, censorship, hysteria, fake news, race-baiting, corruption, socialism, marxism, and incivility.

For civil discourse to return, Democrats must lose big in November

For civil discourse to return Democrats must lose big in November

It’s a good time to be in the pain relief industry. Many Americans are likely experiencing headaches from all their shouting while others are experiencing neck pains from shaking our heads so much. The state of politics in America induces maximum pain on those of us who are paying attention.

As a co-founder of the Federalist Party, I’ve been asked by many recently why I’ve been so heavily focused on helping Republicans win. I’m not a Republican. I believe the majority of GOP politicians are weak, moderate, self-serving, and not fulfilling their promises. We still have Obamacare. Planned Parenthood is richer now than they’ve ever been. There’s very little progress towards a border wall. The tax reform that’s been touted so heavily is a decent tax cut, but far from reform. Budgets that were already through the roof under President Obama are now so high one could hardly see the roof if they looked down from such heights.

No, the Republicans have not done a great job, but it’s a lesser-of-two-evils world for now and their opponents have an ideology that rivals Nicolás Maduro’s on the “Evil Scale.” If I could have put forth viable candidates this election as we’d hoped we could a year ago, my tone would be completely different. Instead, we’re stuck with the unibrow party false dichotomy, but even in this false dichotomy we’re forced to make choices. I choose to oppose the leftist surge.

With that said, I’m going to offer some advice to the Democrats. Hit the brakes on your leftward lurch. You were far enough to the left with Bill Clinton and Teddy Kennedy. You were too far to the left with Barack Obama and Harry Reid. Now you’re plunging into the fiery pits of socialism, communism, and authoritarian fascism with Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris. Hit the brakes now. Pull the emergency brake lever. Release the rear parachute. Do whatever you can do to reverse the hard left path you’ve chosen to travel ever since conventional wisdom failed you with Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election.

Now that the advice has been delivered, I can sleep well knowing I didn’t engage in helping the milquetoast Republican Party without at least offering a consoling tip to their competitors. I can now go about the business of aiding in a return to the one thing America needs now more than ever: civil discourse.

Many on the left are pushing against civility. It seems that the passions of the left have ignited, which is good as long as there’s discourse. Without discourse, the fire they light can spread out of control. What’s left is the dumpster fire the Democratic Party has become. Sensible Democrats don’t know whether to jump off the Democratic Socialist train or jump aboard because they aren’t sure whether it can carry them to victory of over a cliff. At this point, it’s still uncertain, as disconcerting as that may sound to those of us who are terrified by the prospects of far leftist victories.

One thing needs to be understood by Republicans and Independents watching the Democrats commit self-immolation. The majority of Democratic voters are not that crazy. The silent majority of Democrats want to talk through differences. They appreciate the lowered taxes they’re seeing and the jobs that are emerging. They don’t like the prospects of an originalist-stacked Supreme Court, but they’re shaking their heads at people clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court just like the rest of us.

The unhinged minority on the far left are ruining the country for everyone. They’re drowning out the sensible voices of polite Democrats, embarrassing themselves in the eyes of most Independents, and drawing amused chuckles from Republicans. But the real harm they’re doing is they’re preventing civil discourse from being the right option in most situations.

Civil discourse would have prompted Democrats to take the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh directly to the entire Senate Judiciary Committee as soon as they seemed credible.

Civil discourse would allow Kanye West to visit the Oval Office without being racially slurred and ridiculed by mainstream media on national television.

Civil discourse would spark an issues-based conversation at a Washington DC restaurant with a Senator and his wife instead of forcing them to leave out of fear for their safety and the safety of other patrons in the restaurant.

The anger that has been channeled by the far left is artificial. That’s not to say their anger itself is artificial, but the way they’ve channeled it is for maximum social media sharing rather than for exacting real change in the way the nation is governed.

They aren’t attempting to change hearts and minds. They’re attempting to get likes and shares.

Did the far left start this? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe it was President Trump. Maybe it was President Obama. Maybe it was the Tea Party. Maybe it was Black Lives Matter. Maybe it was white nationalists. Maybe it was #OccupyWallStreet. I’m not here to assign original blame to the far leftists for the anger they feel, but I will absolutely assign blame to them for their actions and reactions. They may not have started us down this road, but they’ve taken their unhinged antics to entirely new level that makes civil discourse nearly impossible.

This election is about more than just control on Capitol Hill. It’s about telling Democrats if they choose to listen to the unhinged far left, and this election year they have, then they will not be given the privilege of representing us.
