Mainstream media keeps saying Democrats have upper hand in shutdown yet its Trumps fault

There are two conflicting narratives floating around on mainstream media. That’s not uncommon, but when both narratives are invoked in the same reports, it makes no sense. Then again, not making sense seems to be the only thing that makes any sense in today’s mainstream media.

The first narrative is that the Democrats have the upper hand in negotiations over the partial government shutdown. It’s one of those talking points that are circulated to DC and media elites in order to build a nonsensical narrative that can’t be challenged since many are saying it. Nobody knows exactly what it means but it must be good for the Democrats, right? Upper hand is a good thing to have, after all.

But in the same breath they say the shutdown is the President’s fault. This is equally absurd, though for different reasons. The President’s proposal for border wall funding is no different from past calls by the same Democrats who now oppose it. This narrative stipulates that the President must abandon his goals, the promises he made to the American people, and pure common sense in order for the shutdown to end.

How can one side have the upper hand while the other side is getting all the fault? If the Democrats truly do have the upper hand, that means they have it within their power to help end the shutdown. If they have some of the power to end the shutdown, the fault cannot lie in the President alone.

Personally, I do blame both sides for the shutdown. It’s not just the President, though. The GOP should have flexed their muscles when they had the time and the majorities to make it happen. Some will say they couldn’t do it because they didn’t have the numbers, but if that’s the case they should have brought it to a vote well before the current CR and forced the Democrats to go on record blocking it.

I would go so far as to say the Republicans could have retained control o the House of Representatives had they pushed for the border wall well before the election. With Democrats blocking it, they would have had something valid to rally the votes.

Dan Bongino: The more we find out about Michael Avenatti, the creepier he becomes

Dan Bongino The more we find out about Michael Avenatti the creepier he becomes

One of the best parts about Dan Bongino was noted by Tucker Carlson in the beginning of this video. Bongino is one of the most clear speakers on television with zero “ums, likes, or stutters” as he delivers his vast understanding of the world of politics. He’s easy to listen to, which is important considering how much influence he’s starting to gain in the world of conservative media.

Speaking to Carlson about this crazy week in news, Bongino led off with a very clear truth: porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is as creepy as they get. He’s up there with James Comey on the strangeness scale and he’s beyond Joe Biden on the creepy scale. Nobody comes close on the sleaziness scale.

The funny part, as Bongino points out, is he’s actually been a regularly on most left-leaning shows from lowly podcasts to CNN and MSNBC programs, including… wait for it… Reliable Source. Avenatti is just a punchline now.

Biden to announce next week

Biden to announce next week

Former Vice President Joe Biden is going to announce his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President next week according to multiple reports. This comes as no surprise to most who have been paying attention as his elevated presence in the media and at speaking events led many to believe he was going to announce soon.

Biden has run for President twice before, bowing out in 1988 and 2008 but eventually landing on the latter ticket with President Barack Obama.

Some thought a report of inappropriate touching that came out last month may thwart his efforts once again, but the controversy has died down and the memes are getting old.

Now, it seems like the announcement is imminent.

Opinion

The far-left wing of the Democratic Party doesn’t want to see Biden run. They’ve been able to pull every other major candidate to accept and appreciate socialism to one degree or another and they fear Biden might be too moderate.

This is true in some ways, but don’t be fooled by Biden’s centrist history. He’s not going to allow himself to be painted as a moderate. He will proudly point to his progressive record and tell the people he’s the champion on the far-left they need.

It may be enough to win him the nomination.

Quote

“My intention from the beginning was if I were to run would be the last person to announce. We’ll find out whether I can win in a primary.” – Joe Biden

Final Thoughts

It’s hard to tell which rich old white guy the President would rather face, Biden or Sanders. Personally, I’d like to see Joe win the nomination as his gaffes will make for a fun general election show.

Dear Democrats, bring on the impeachment!

Dear Democrats bring on the impeachment

There is no doubting how accurate a previous column by our own EIC, JD Rucker, was. Its very title captured the reactions before the report was public. But perhaps the Mueller Report enhancing the public’s preconceived biases was low hanging fruit. However, I daresay the intensity of the Democrats’ reactions were underestimated, and I further argue that we should escalate their emotions for the sake of  political expediency. So please Democrats, go fourth with impeachment proceedings. It would be like their Battle of Crécy.

If you are a Trump-hating leftist or NeverTrump former-Republican, the report will give you days, perhaps weeks of ammunition you can hurl at your Trump-supporting friends and across your social media profiles. Your wildest dreams will be confirmed by whatever mainstream media outlets you love the most, and you will feel both vindicated for thinking the President has always been a lawbreaking bad guy who stole the election and deserves to be impeached before checking into jail.

#ImpeachTrump was all the rage on Twitter, with prominent fresh faces in Congress latching on to the movement of their social media base. The brightest minds of the Left at The Atlantic and The Intercept claim to have a roadmap to impeachment. Rep. Rashida Tlaib has begun the impeachment resolution and their brightest star AOC, has signed on.

Battle of Crécy

The French are famous for executing some of the worst military blunders in history. Among them is their repeated charges during the Battle of Crécy. King Edward III during his campaign across the channel found himself pursued by the French army of King Phillip VI and his auxiliaries. King Edward mounted a defense outside the town of Crécy on high ground. The French first engaged with crossbowmen who were at an inferior position compared to the English longbowmen. The French knights pummeled their own crossbowmen in a show of elitism as they charged to win the battle. But the charge failed. So, they charged again and again and again and again. It is said the French knights charged at least fifteen times, until it became too dark. During the earlier charges the French followed the blind King John of Bohemia.

It’s not enough to be wrong once. They have doubled, tripled and quadrupled down on what was an outlandish conspiracy from the beginning that only had an investigation because people in the FBI abused FISA warrants and the opposition media peddled these lies. No, Trump’s subsequent interview after firing James Comey did not warrant a special counsel. So if the Democrats want to charge yet again, this time believing they have reasonable findings of high crimes or misdemeanors then by all means charge once more. Following AOC is like following King John of Bohemia, if her Green New Deal debacle is any indicator. Meanwhile Don Jr. earned his spurs.

Conservatives are poised to win and each wave of attacks will only create mounting losses. This is a battle Conservatives might as well have. It would not simply be a political victory, it would be demoralizing. If Rachel Maddow cried upon hearing “no collusion,” can’t wait for the leftist tears after this impeachment assault fails. So go ahead Democrats, use King Phillip VI as inspiration for political strategy. Republicans will look like adults, on their high ground outside of Crécy, while the Democrats increasingly become infantile.
