Supreme irony: The Democrats are no longer Democratic

Supreme irony The Democrats are no longer Democratic

The Left’s desperation in the Kavanaugh confirmation circus once again shows they have no use for democratic principles.

If there is one constant in the universe, it’s that the Left will use all manner of deception to hide their true agenda. They’ve exploited the words ‘Liberal’ and ‘progressive’ for years now [Unfortunately with unwitting help from the right]. The Supreme Court confirmation circus illustrates they also have no longer have any use for the will of the people.

What are the Left’s ultimate motives behind their smear tactics in Supreme Court confirmation circus?

The national socialist media is working overtime to dig up whatever they can to smear the present nominee. In a stunning display of activism that makes one wax nostalgic for the halcyon days of mere media bias, the nation’s socialist media have thrown even the appearance of objectivity under the bus. While it takes a tremendous amount of effort to even comprehend the torrent of ‘journalism’ excreta being unleashed on the country, It important to understand why this is taking place.

Simply put, the Left cannot obtain its agenda by democratic means, so they have to use the courts to ‘Rahm’ it down our throats. Parenthetically speaking, if they could get a majority of the people to vote for their wondrous socialist agenda, they would have no need to work the courts to put it in place by the back door of the Judicial branch of the government.

The Leftist sacrament of abortion tops the list – the only Liberty they really care about – despite their exploitation of the moniker of ‘Liberal’. Liberty Control as well as the vestiges of national socialist healthcare follows this on their list of priorities.

Let us consider what the Left has been willing to throw under the bus in their extreme opposition to the democratic process. Granted, most of these would be different with regard to the case of Leftist under accusation. As they say, if the Left didn’t have double standards, it wouldn’t have standards at all. Were this over someone of the national socialist Left, these rights would be sacrosanct, never to be violated for any reason. However, for those on the Pro-Liberty, Conservative Right these rights are non-existent.

Due process.

This limitation on government power in the judiciary has been on the Leftist chopping block for years. Witness the current zeal to confiscate someone’s means of self-defense with so-called ‘Red Flag’ laws being pushed around the country. With varying degrees, these laws will take the word of almost anyone to impose severe restrictions on someone’s Liberty without any form of due process. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the nation’s Left would exploit this concept in this case. What is even more shocking is that they are being quite blatant about the issue.

Presumption of innocence.

Again, this right is sacrosanct for those on the nation’s Left while being non-existent for those on the Pro-Liberty Right. It is also shocking that certain United States Senators are proudly declaring that Judge Kavanaugh is guilty based on ideology rather than fact.

Burden of Proof.

This follows along with the first two items, but if Leftists are anything, they are stickers for being though in going after every civil liberty they can. No stone will be left unturned in their zeal to destroy the constitutional civil rights of those on a certain part of the political spectrum.

Truth

Senator Dianne Feinstein said it herself that “I can’t say that everything is truthful. I don’t know” With regard to the one set of accusations. The second Kavanaugh accuser is refusing to talk to Congress.  The Left almost automatically assumes that every allegation was truthful, no matter how tenuous the evidence – or lack thereof. Their desire to bolster a political cause deciding the veracity of a story.

Journalistic ethics

One only has to look at how some Leftist media sources have prostituted themselves for the cause of bringing down Judge Kavanaugh to see how far these have fallen. It’s to the point where some sources have outed their comrades in the practice.

The Takeaway

This whole sordid affair will not bode well for future events. Now that they have unleashed the Kraken of smear they will not hold back for the next round. It is easily presumed that these tactics will soon be employed in the upcoming electoral contests. Perhaps we can look forward to the circus leaving town with a confirmation vote set for Friday.

In many ways the ‘Me too’ movement was important in exposing predators – especially in the Leftist Utopia of Hollywood, but it’s weaponization by the Left will soon be it’s downfall. Hopefully, there will be some sane Leftists who will realize they have gone too far and will pull back from the brink. If not, this will soon get out of hand to the detriment of all.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.

Man fined £1,000 for outdated sense of humor

Man fined £1000 for outdated sense of humor

Jonathon Van Maren, a contributor for LifeSiteNews, recently stumbled across an article in the UK’s Edinburgh News about a construction worker who was arrested for “pointing and laughing” at a biological male who was dressed as a female (transgender woman).

[Author’s Note: It is impolite and unkind to point and laugh at others. This article is not an endorsement of such behavior.]

As Van Maren explained, a construction worker named Graham Spiers was walking with a group of friends. The group pointed and laughed while passing a transgender individual who, suspecting that his appearance had become the subject of ridicule, telephoned the police.

Spiers was arrested five day later.

Sherriff Robert Fife scolded Mr. Spiers’s sense of humor and actions:

Transgender insanity: Police now jailing people for laughing at men in women’s clothes

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/transgender-insanity-police-now-jailing-people-for-laughing-at-men-in-womenSheriff Robert Fife also piled on, informing Spiers that, “Your offensive comments were not funny at the time and are not funny now. Your children should grow up understanding gender differences and would be ashamed at your behavior that comes from a different era has no place in today’s society.” Fife then told Spiers that in addition to the cash he had to pay to the biological man for laughing at him, he also had to pay an additional fine of another five hundred pounds.

Graham Spiers was ordered to pay a total of £1,000 for his actions “from a different era,” 500 of which was paid to the complainant.

Of the actions by police and the court in this instance, Van Maren opined:

It is disgusting enough that law enforcement would arrest and charge someone for this triviality. That alone indicates that freedom in Scotland is truly dead. But the fact that law enforcement then lectured Spiers on being a throwback from a different age (that different era being about a decade ago, for the record) and telling him his children should be ashamed of him? And that Spiers was expected to cower and listen to this tongue-lashing from his betters so he could get re-educated and realize that men could now become women and that laughing at their attempts was forbidden by law? That should absolutely repulse any liberty-loving person and terrify everyone who values freedom.

My Take

Pointing and laughing at others is unquestionably unkind. I am repulsed at the thought of such outward meanness. However, that this behavior so would be considered illegal and result in one’s arrest is punitive at best, and is undoubtedly a waste a valuable time and resources. Furthermore, the punishment in this case is brazenly excessive.

This is yet another instance of big government run amok. The Founders knew the dangers of big government. It would be prudent of us to heed the Founders’ advice, lest we find ourselves in the position of Mr. Spiers: subjugated beneath the arbitrary boot of “benevolent” governmental authority.

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

There’s a trend that’s been quietly, consistently rearing its ugly head against the President of the United States and his supporters since before the 2016 election. We’ve seen it among unhinged journalists, virtue-signaling celebrities, and Democratic politicians. We’ve seen it manifest in the ugliest form of hatred – the common hate-hoax – and it’s doing more to divide America than the source of the perpetrators’ anger.

They hate President Trump. They hate the people who got him elected. The hate the idea of making America great again because as much of the MAGA agenda comes to pass, they’re learning they’ve been wrong the whole time. I know first hand. I’ve been proven wrong myself.

No, I’m not a hate-hoaxer, but I’ve been against the President to varying degrees for over three years now. Before he officially won the GOP nomination in 2016, I opposed him because I felt he would do too much damage while delivering only a moderate amount of good policies. He wasn’t as bad as John Kasich or Jeb Bush, but we had Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul as better candidates. Nevertheless, he won the nomination, prompting me to spend the final leg of the 2016 election without a horse in the race. I didn’t like the idea of Trump being President, but under no circumstances did I want Hillary Clinton to be President, either.

100% crowdfunded news. Please help.

After he won, I became a cautious but hopeful watcher. While we worked on alternatives to bring limited-government federalism to the forefront of local, state, and national politics, I took a case-by-case stance on the President himself. When he did well, I praised him. When he did poorly, I criticized him. This stance has remained until this day, though there have been times when I was more supportive or more critical, depending on the policy discussion of the day. Tax and bureaucratic cuts – good. Tariffs and bump stock bans – bad. The recent cave on the border omnibus – very bad. Most foreign policy moves (leaving Iran deal, leaving Paris accords, moving embassy to Jerusalem) – very good.

Unfortunately, it seems many on the left have been unwilling to recognize even the remotest possibility anything the President is doing is good. What’s worse is that some have been so aggressive in their desire to prove their point that they’ve pretended to be victims for the sake of getting their “victims’ perks” of love and affection from their peers while painting anyone wearing a MAGA hat as bigoted and hateful.

Thus, the anti-MAGA hate hoax was born and it’s been so prominent over the last two-and-a-half years, one must wonder how mainstream media and Democrats became so gullible that they fall for it every single time.

Andy Ngo at Quillette put together a comprehensive list of hate hoaxes that leftists have perpetrated to paint the President and his supporters as racists. It’s absolutely stunning when you see the magnitude of the hatred – THEIR hatred – that makes them willing to tell bald-faced lies just to prove the movement they oppose is as bad as they think it is.

I’ve had ideological disagreements with nearly every presidential candidate (let alone every President) since I became an adult. There’s nothing wrong with disagreement as long as one is willing to not be blinded in one direction or the other. There are plenty who blindly follow President Trump to approximately the same degree that supporters blindly followed President Obama. The herd mentality seems to have become the way of the political world in America for our last two presidents. But that blind devotion is simply an annoyance. The blind hatred that drives people to commit these hoaxes is far more dangerous.

It’s likely when the details are fully revealed regarding Jussie Smollett’s hate-hoax, it was driven more by a narcissistic desire to advance his career rather than pure hatred for the MAGA crowd or the President, but obviously the latter hatred played a role in his decision-making process. This type of action is never acceptable. We have enough outrage in America. There’s no need to manufacture even more for false reasons.

It’s time for the unhinged left to stop assuming every MAGA supporter is racist and start asking how the actions of those on their side of the political aisle drove massive amounts of people to support President Trump. Perhaps then, they’ll realize the hatred is coming mostly from them.
