Continued protests and lawmaker whining matches the leftists’ unhinged message



Continued protests and lawmaker whining matches the leftists unhinged message

“We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to let you take it anymore.” That pretty much sums up what anti-Kavanaugh leftists and their heroic representatives on Capitol Hill are saying now that Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed.

The deal is done. The gig is up. The right thing happened in the end and America has been ready to move on from this ugly episode for at least a couple of weeks now. Unfortunately, the Democrats aren’t going to let anyone move on. Their leaders need to justify their failure to block Kavanaugh by saying it helped them win the midterm elections. They need this to appear to have been a winning strategy all along even as indicators declare their best move is to put it behind them.

Now is their moment to drag this out all the way to election day. Democrats in the House and Senate were likely giving each other high-fives when the Christine Blasey Ford accusations first surfaced. This was their September surprise they were going to be able to ride into more October surprises, all leading to November victories.

Their problem is that they misjudged the reaction of the people to their constant attacks and shifted tactics on Kavanaugh. The soon-to-be-Justice came across badly during his interview on Fox News. He reversed his milquetoast attitude from the interview and turned the knob to an eleven for his Senate Judicial Committee defense testimony which made him look even worse. Then his cherry on the cake was his WSJ op-ed that defended his testimony while apologizing for his emotional reactions.

All of this should have played right into the Democrats’ hands, but they didn’t take into account that the only people who watched the interview, watched his testimony, and read the op-ed were the politically minded minority of Americans who had already made up their minds. These are the Democrats who were always going to vote for Democrats, the Republicans who were always going to vote Republican, and the Independents who have already decided which direction they’re going to lean.

Democrats and mainstream media do not seem to realize that the politically minded minority does not win or lose elections. They think by appealing to these people, they’re going to energize their base. They still haven’t learned the lesson about today’s society that candidate Trump taught us. It’s all about soundbites, Tweets, and optics.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, the continuation of their course is going to damage them further. These protests make the protesters feel better, but they do not play well to the general public. Disrupting today’s roll call was likely viewed by the protesters as sending a message to America that the votes were wrong. Instead, Americans watching the vote were dismayed by the delay of the inevitable.

Protesters thus far have only been able to get themselves arrested and waste our collective time.

As for Democratic lawmakers, their campaign failures are even more glaring. They now realize based upon polls that obstructing Kavanaugh’s confirmation has made them, not the Republicans, look bad. It might be what they think their base wants, but they’re making calls from the Anita Hill playbook. It worked for them then, but today is different. Voters are more aware of political strategies than they were before. They’re told by the media outlets they watch and read that their moves are mostly fruitless and intended for the audience instead of confirmation process itself. They’ve tried to manipulate the same way they did in 1992, but their tactics are discussed today while they weren’t discussed 26 years ago. All of this has led to very bad messaging.

Midterm election messaging woes

What Democrats have done is given their base a set of talking points and complex ideas, then let the base dictate where they’re going to take their messaging. Much of their base is energized by the concepts of socialism, so more of the Democrats’ messaging is embracing socialist tenets. Much of their base has embraced the #MeToo movement as a sort of anti-patriarchy gospel, so the Democrats’ messaging has focused on women. These messages aren’t playing nearly as well as they’d hoped.

But it really isn’t the Democratic base’s fault. They’re the victims of a botched and confusing set of narratives coming from various Democratic lawmakers and candidates that don’t conform with most Americans’ perspectives while also not jibing with each other. The core of Democratic messaging can be broken down to one contradiction. They love America but they blame America’s past and present for what America has become and is becoming. If sounds confusing, it’s because it is, but that’s really at the core of a handful of Democratic messages.

Here are some of the narratives coming out of Democratic campaign camps:

  • Capitalism is bad, therefore we need to be socialists while maintaining the good aspects of capitalism to drive it. Huh?
  • Believe the accusers regardless of how thin their accusations might be, unless they’re accusing Keith Ellison with plenty of supporting evidence, in which case you can’t believe the accuser. Huh?
  • We will pay for everything for you by taking your money and using it to pay for things so you won’t have to pay for them yourself. Huh?
  • President Trump’s tariffs are horrible. We instead need Senator Schumer, Sanders, and Warren to put forth their tariff plan which is almost exactly like Trump’s, but since it won’t have the Trump name on it we’ll like it even though we hate it now. Huh?
  • The economy is bad even if indicators say it’s good, but if you’re prospering more now than before then you must vote Democrat so we can do what we weren’t able to do when we were in power before because this time is different. Oh, and the economy is bad. Huh?

Yes, to any conservative and most thoughtful moderates these concepts seem strange, but if you break down the messaging coming from Democratic candidates’ campaigns this is pretty much what they’re saying.

As they continue to pump out #MeToo, socialist, and anti-Trump/Kavanaugh messages, their poll numbers will continue to fall. Democrats have failed to understand Americans are more aware of campaign tactics than ever before. This is why they’ll lose in November.

If only one Democrat, mainstream media shill, or Hollywood snowflake admitted they were wrong about Mueller…



If only one Democrat mainstream media shill or Hollywood snowflake admitted they were wrong about Mu

My nasty, terrible, awful secret is that deep down, I thought Donald Trump Jr. colluded with the Russians. I know what you’re thinking. “How did you fall for the media’s fake news?” As ashamed as I am of this revelation, I figured based on the information being circulated, it made sense that Don Jr. got a tip that could help his father and he likely acted on it.

Following the summary of Robert Mueller’s investigation report that claimed there was no collusion by the Trump campaign, I’m pleased to acknowledge that I was wrong. Of course, I’m not a Democrat, a mainstream media shill, or a Hollywood snowflake. I’m just an innocent conservative who fell for onslaught of “bombshell” reports.

I was wrong and I’m happy about that.

Now, try to find anyone in the opposition party in newsrooms, Hollywood, or the DNC who is willing to admit they were wrong this whole time. Anyone? ANYONE?

Here’s the thing. If there’s one thing that would help heal this nation’s divide, it would be the Democrats coming out and acknowledging they made a huge mistake following faulty reports and wishful thinking that led them to believe in something that simply wasn’t there. Aren’t the Democrats about uniting the nation? Aren’t they the ones always saying the nation’s divided and it needs to be fixed?

I’m one of those people who likes many of the things the President is doing while not liking the way he’s doing it. But I’m also the type of person who can acknowledge when I was misled, and after falling for the witch hunt hoax of the century, I have no problem doing so now.

Therefore, I call on those who helped spread the Russian-Trump collusion narrative to publicly admit they were spreading the rumors from their own echo chamber and turning it into what they would consider to be news. If they can do that, I’ll actually regain a smidgen of respect for them.

It’s hard to admit when you’re wrong. I get it. But the nation is truly divided and the Russian-collusion fake news witch hunt hoax is the primary culprit of the last two years. Grow some integrity and acknowledge your errors, Democrats.

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if it’s clean



Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if its clean

Let’s play the hypothetical game. Now that Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Robert Mueller’s Russian election hacking report has indicated the President and his campaign did not collude with the Russians, the only thing the left can do is hope for a release of the full report. In it, they hope to find evidence that there really was collusion and possibly obstruction of justice, but not enough evidence to indict anyone on it. In the court of public opinion, it may be enough to win the 2020 election.

But what if there’s nothing? What if the Mueller report makes it even more clear than AG Barr’s conclusion that collusion didn’t occur? In that scenario, releasing the report would give the GOP every ounce of ammunition they need to sink the Democratic Party for the foreseeable future.

Imagine all the soundbites and Tweets of Democrats, media shills, and Hollywood activists over the last 22 months declaring with a certainty that the investigation was necessary, that it would yield fruit, and that it wasn’t a witch hunt. Now, imagine a Republican Party that was actually savvy when it comes to winning elections. I know it’s difficult to picture based on RNC’s campaign illiteracy, but try your hardest to picture effectiveness in campaign messaging by the GOP. Such a scenario would put dozens of Democrats across the nation in jeopardy based solely on the gigantic waste of time, energy, and personal investment.

They promised us they were going to take down the President and prove he stole the 2016 election. They banked on the notion that the only reason Hillary Clinton lost is because Donald Trump cheated. They screamed through tears of desperation in trying to protect Mueller because they assumed the President would fire him. When none of those things panned out, they revealed their attempts to rally the people for a righteous cause were actually manifestations of their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Can you imagine all that? Good. Now, let’s look at the reality of the situation.

If the report is not released soon, it’s very likely there are things in there that the President doesn’t want made public. There would be no other reason to keep it sealed, especially after declaring that it should be released. The shadow of the report is going to grow much bigger than the meat of the report itself. The left is already playing like the Barr summary was just a smokescreen so the administration could keep the report sealed without getting backlash.

On the other hand, holding the report back for a little while could be the 4D chess we always hear about in regards to the President’s campaign strategies. If he can get the left banking even more on the report as their smoking gun before releasing it to reveal a giant nothingburger, it may not just be a few dozen Democrats across the nation in sudden election jeopardy. It could be the end for literally hundreds of them.

Don’t assume if the report gets held from the public for a while that it has something bad in it. If it gets released in a month or two after every Democratic candidate screams for it, then the nothinburger will be a poison pill for their whole party.

First they came for the gun owners….




First they came for the gun owners

…but I didn’t say anything because I didn’t own a gun.

One of the more infuriating aspects of the Left’s game of denying reality with their little ‘That wasn’t really socialism’ is that there are distinct parallels between their agenda and that of other socialist nations, past and present. They all have a similar process of imposing socialistic slavery with a specific national agenda. A key part being the deprivation of the means of self-defense to their citizens and those who posses these means.

Denying the right of self-defense is a fundamental aspect of socialism

It is a fact of history that gun confiscation is an integral part of implementing of a socialist national agenda. The USSR required the people to turn in their guns, as did the German national socialist worker’s party. As was Fidel Castro’s response in the question of whether the people should have guns as or the United Socialist Party of Venezuela confiscating guns from the people for their own safety, of course.

These have all taken place at the onset of socialistic slavery, but somehow the new version isn’t the same because reasons. Leftists aren’t really trying to set up a governmental monopoly on the use of force, they are just trying to protect the children* [ *unborn and under 9 months old excluded ]. Even though it has been proven time and again that their repression of Liberty does not work as advertised.

The liberty grabber left is now celebrating the destruction of basic civil liberties

Where this subject not so deadly serious, it would be comical to still witness leftists parroting the ‘No one is talking about gun confiscation’ or a variant thereof. Meanwhile they can scarcely contain themselves in the glee over New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern seizing on their ‘serious crisis’ to confiscate guns with tweets looking to replicate the destruction of a basic human right in the states.

It is more than a coincidence that the tempo of the drum beat for liberty control has increased while the ideological fraud of socialism is being forced on the people. After a long winded piece gloating about leftist victories over liberty, an opinion piece in Bloomberg has even suggested that Chief Justice John Roberts seize on the serious crisis in New Zealand, using it to destroy this basic civil liberty.

Citizens turned into subjects with a change in the relationship between the people and the government

The genius of the founding fathers is that they recognized that down through history, people have had varying relationships with government. In most cases it was one of the government having a monopoly on the use of force. On occasion the people would challenge this monopoly and change the government, but only after an ensuing orgy of carnage and death.

The founders set forth a new paradigm, that of government by the consent of the people with a semblance of parity via a distributed ability to use force. The nation’s Socialist-Left would like to change or ‘reform’ that paradigm back to the old-fashioned version of the government being the sole purveyor of force. Please note that we are dispensing with the tired old line of the left that this is not what they want. They have made this quite clear over the past few years to the point that anyone that is informed of the issue recognizes that this is just another lie on their part.

“He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression.” – Thomas Paine

Relegating gun owners to 2nd class citizenship

Those of us who haven’t traded, sold or lost all of our guns in a boating accident are a persecuted class these days. The situation is much akin to a baseball pitching machine throwing fastballs over and over again without let-up. With all kinds of new laws being proposed at state and federal levels that range from invasive Intergalactic Background Checks, liability insurance requirements, gun registration and of course, gun confiscation SWATing legislation.

The destruction of basic civil liberties will only begin with gun owners

Every citizen of the nation is protected with basic Constitutional principles and civil rights including due process, the presumption of innocence and the right to face one’s accuser.

The gun owner has been excluded from these basic civil liberties in some states, and if the liberty grabbers had their way, such would be the case nationwide. With just the flimsiest insinuation of being ‘dangerous’ a gun owner [or those who are merely accused of being a gun owner] will be subjected to gun confiscation raid from the authorities.

This will be just the beginning of the ordeal – if they survive the SWAT team coming at 5:00 AM without warning. Our 2nd class citizen will have to prove they aren’t ‘dangerous’ after they have effectively found guilty in a star chamber. It will only be after spending thousands of dollars in legal fees that they may get their property back in less than stellar condition. The trend is to set gun owners below the legal status of accused criminals in the eyes of the justice system.

We’re just starting on the slippery slope

Fresh from their moves against the basic human right of self-preservation, the chief censor of the government of New Zealand has arbitrarily decided that certain ideas are beyond the pale, sparking a debate over free speech as reported by the Associated Press. This of course is another ongoing controversy in the states over the issue of political correctness and ‘Hate speech’. This shows that isn’t just about ‘military style assault weapons’ or whatever is the phrase at the moment, this is a question of liberty, something the people who use a similar sounding label used to pretend to support.

Make no mistake, the legislative mechanisms and regulations used to deprive gun owners of their commonsense human and civil rights will be used on others if they are allowed to stand. A civil liberties group in California made the point that one doesn’t have to be a gun owner to be subjected to gun confiscation SWATing. If they can go after the property of a gun owner in one instance, because they don’t like their attitude, what’s to stop them from going after a journalist or other type of activist? These orders only have to allege someone is dangerous with little evidence, much less proof that they own a gun. What’s to stop them from deciding free-speech is dangerous or ‘offensive’ necessitating that their computers or cell phones should be seized – at gunpoint no less?

The Takeaway

The whole point of the ‘first they came for’ series is that authoritarians rarely go after everyone at once. They are very careful in picking their targets for their oppression with the tactic of divide and conquer. Today it’s the people who own guns, tomorrow it will be those who don’t conform to the precepts of ‘political correctness’.

This is why President John F. Kennedy stated that: “The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”

This is why everyone should be concerned at the headlong rush to denigrate the right of self-defense. And why everyone should be horrified that the government could even consider jettisoning the basic civil liberty of due process and the presumption of innocence. The loss of basic civil rights for some will mean the loss for everyone.
