The smokescreen: Democrats need Barr and the Mueller report at the top of the news cycle

The smokescreen Democrats need Barr and the Mueller report at the top of the news cycle

A day before the vote held by the House Judiciary committee that pushed forward a recommendation to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, Fox News host Brit Hume broke down he “silly season” we’ve now entered.

On the surface, everything the Democrats have been doing since the release of the Mueller report seems to be not only harmful to America (an act for which they hold no qualms) but also counterproductive to their own goal of gaining power (which they would do literally anything to attain). They’ve pushed further investigations while most of the nation yawns. They’ve continuously threatened to impeach President Trump, Barr, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and just about anyone else who makes the news opposing the will of the House of Representatives. Nevertheless, the people aren’t impressed. A vast majority of Republicans, most Independents, and a good chunk of Democrats are saying something to the effect of “impeach or move on.”

If this seems like the kind of political misdirection we’ve seen in the past from both parties, that’s because it is. Whenever one party or the other puts so much emphasis on something seemingly inconsequential and that will certainly result in zero fruit, one has to wonder why. The last time we saw it at this scale was from 2010 all the way through to election day, 2016, when the GOP continuously beat the Obamacare drum. They passed many repeals, including a clean repeal in 2015 that they boldly placed on President Obama’s desk for him to veto. But when they had someone in the White House would sign it a year and a half later, suddenly they couldn’t find the courage to even consider it, let alone pass it.

It was an election smokescreen that helped rally the people around a goal, and as they took the House, Senate, and White House, it was clear that their efforts had worked.

But what the Democrats are doing now seems different. It certainly has to do with next year’s election, but if they think they can ride the Mueller report until then, they’d be fools. People are already bored. So why keep bringing it up? Why all the sound and fury if they know it will signify nothing?

No, this isn’t like what the GOP did with Obamacare. This is very different.

To understand why they keep pinging the Mueller report, contempt, and impeachment to the top of the news feed, one needs to see what stories are not hitting the front pages of newspapers or the top section of online news aggregators, stories that absolutely deserve to be given the full attention of the American people. These stories can be broken down into two categories:

  1. The border crisis is bad and getting much, much worse. Readers of NOQ Report are well aware of the challenges we’re facing at the border and in the interior as record numbers of illegal aliens are being released to the streets of America. But it isn’t just the masses of migrants that are a problem. Crimes committed by illegal aliens are also on the rise. This is the type of news we report on every day, news the Democrats don’t want anyone to hear.
  2. The economy is booming and shows no signs of slowing. The economy isn’t perfect, but it’s clearly humming. There are more job openings than jobless Americans. The tax cuts have worked, as have other efforts, and even if I’m no fan of tariffs, there is still other good news in our trade relationships. More Americans are making more money than they’ve ever made before.

The screaming about Barr and the Mueller report is all about keeping the news away from the devastating border crisis and the booming economy. They want you focused on their unhinged actions instead of real issues.

Desperate Beto O’Rourke repeats lie that Trump called KKK members ‘very fine people’

Desperate Beto ORourke repeats lie that Trump called KKK members very fine people

A popular technique used by Nazis before and during WWII was to tell a big lie often and loudly. Their theory was if you tell the same lie over and over again, eventually it would be accepted as the truth. It’s ironic that Democrats like Beto O’Rourke are invoking this Nazi technique to tie President Trump to the KKK. It’s also quite sad as the once-high-flying progressive hero has fallen so far that he must rely on controversy just to stay relevant. His poll numbers are that bad.

His latest attempt to play the race card against anything and everyone who doesn’t agree with him has him repeating the tired old lie that has been perpetuated by mainstream media and propped up by social media. But even worse is the fact that some search engines are keeping stories accepting the false claims ranked higher than the fact check stories that debunk the claim.

Once and for all, President Trump did not call KKK members “very fine people.” During the Charlottsville protests, white supremacists were present. But also included in the crowd on the right were average citizens who were upset about the take down of American historical monuments. As the President noted and as has been verified by independent sources, these “very fine people” were among the white supremacists. It’s possible to support a goal but not hold the ideology of others who support the same goal. Just because I don’t want monuments taken down doesn’t mean I’m a white supremacist. I’m not even white.

Here is what the President actually said, with the extremely important last portion of his statement conveniently omitted from all progressive media reports. They took him out of context so blatantly and heinously because they NEED the people to believe he’s racist. Emphasis and bracketed notes have been added, since progressive media and Beto O’Rourke clearly lack reading comprehension skills.

“You had some very bad people in that group [referring to neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and KKK members]. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name… I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.”

A plain-text reading of the President’s statement make O’Rourke’s recent Tweet either the product of his own stupidity or an unambiguous bald-face lie.

There are millions of Americans who disagree with President Trump over policies. There are some people who aren’t happy with his results so far. Both of these are open for proper discourse in the form of criticism, praise, or debate. But let’s try to keep the lies to a minimum. I understand the race card is all the Democrats have left, but they should try harder to make plans that work (or embrace the GOP’s plans that are already working) instead of stooping to name-calling and promoting false narratives.

There are only two possibilities. Either Beto O’Rourke is extremely unintelligent, lacking in basic reading comprehension skills, or he is a blatant liar so desperate for attention that he’ll say anything for a headline. He needs to be pitied.

There will be no climate change debate because the DNC is scared of what would be said

There will be no climate change debate because the DNC is scared of what would be said

Climate change activists were extremely vocal at the annual summer for the Democratic National Committee. They’re upset that climate change is effectively missing from the first two debates and have demanded a single-issue debate focused on the environment. But DNC leaders haven’t budged after declaring there would be no such debate.

This isn’t surprising. Conservatives may look at progressives and assume everyone in the Democratic Party is a flaming tree-hugger, but the reality is climate change ranks very low on the list of real concerns for actual voters. If it weren’t for the loud but small group of radical progressives who have been driving the agenda for the Democratic Party since President Trump was elected, climate change would still be an issue of passing importance on the periphery that it has been for decades.

It’s not that climate change isn’t a concern. It’s that it’s not a primary concern to most voters. Democrats are worried about it as they’re flooded with propaganda by progressive media, but compared to putting food on the table or paying for their kid’s braces, climate change is a distant concern.

Nevertheless, it’s an issue that’s important enough to talk about for Democrats because their party holds the edge on the matter in the eyes of anyone who believes it’s an issue at all. The ranks of Americans who believe man-made climate change is a real concern are growing. Polls show a majority of Americans who think it’s something that deserves attention are high even among Republicans. Considering the GOP stance on climate change ranges from mild interest to outright denial, one would think the Democrats would take advantage of this.

They won’t. They can’t. Today’s candidates aren’t Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton calling for incremental action to address climate change over the next three decades. Today’s leading candidates, especially Bernie “Green New Deal” Sanders and Elizabeth “Bold Action” Warren, are speaking of radical changes when they’re talking to their base. And lower ranked candidates are even more expressive of their concerns in hopes the environmentalist crowd can help propel them to the upper tier in the race for the nomination.

Candidates can’t speak boldly on a topic to their base and then give more moderate responses to a national audience. In today’s social-media-driven society, major contradictions are captured. They go viral. Then candidates have to answer for their reversals. Therefore, whatever the candidate tell radical progressives in small gatherings about their climate change plans must be the same thing they say during a nationally televised debate.

The DNC realizes this would be the kiss of death for their White House ambitions. If mainstream moderate American voters, who often receive their only exposure of candidates during televised debates, were to hear the insane ideas most of the candidates are proposing, they will quickly warm to the idea of reelecting President Trump.

The moment a candidate talks about limiting air travel, they’ve lost 2020.

The first Democrat to say we need to be driving electric cars exclusively by 2030 will get demolished in the general election.

Some may point out these policy proposals are available to the public already, but availability does not highlight the issue to the vast majority of Americans. But on the debate stage where consistency must be maintained, they’re done the moment they announce their real perspectives on the issue.

If moderates and independents heard the things Democratic candidates were proposing to tackle climate change, any hope of beating President Trump would be lost. The DNC won’t risk letting the radical truth come out in a debate.

Tucker Carlson: Moderates aren’t welcome in the Democratic Party anymore

Tucker Carlson Moderates arent welcome in the Democratic Party anymore

It’s true. If you’re a moderate, your ideas are anathema to the Democratic Party. Oh, there are still moderate Democratic voters out there. Otherwise, Joe Biden wouldn’t be leading the polls, though even Biden has taken several pages out of the hyper-leftist policy playbook since announcing his candidacy in April. But the radical progressive wing of the party is taking over and many Democratic voters are following their lead.

This is why, as Tucker Carlson put it, this is a two-person race. Which radical will emerge at the end, Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders? Warren has had the upper hand since the debates, but Sanders hopes his more-radical Green New Deal proposal will resonate with the far left enough that they’ll give him back his mantle as the socialist of choice.

Noteworthy in Carlson’s commentary is the fact that the DNC declined having a climate change debate. Why? Because the last thing they want is for their candidates to be spouting off radical proposals to deal with climate change on national television. They don’t mind it when candidates are talking to the base, but considering many Americans have their only exposure to the candidates during the ultra-hyped televised debates, the DNC doesn’t want the candidates scaring moderates towards the Republicans.

Conservatives were so concerned about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and rightfully so. But this new batch of Democratic presidential candidates are completely detached from reality. It’s radical progressivism or hit the road for today’s Democrats.
