4 Retweets in an hour: Bill de Blasio’s campaign failed to materialize

4 Retweets in an hour Bill de Blasios campaign failed to launch

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was supposed to make an impact on the Democratic presidential nominating process. At least that’s what a handful of pundits thought. But after a little buzz on his first day and a few jabs by the President, it appears de Blasio was nowhere near ready to run for president despite coming in much later than most in the field.

Last week, we noted how his YouTube channel had failed miserably. But that embarrassment was nothing compared to his attempts to play on Twitter, which happens to be the President’s favorite social media playground.

Bill Tweet

In case he keeps the Tweet up (he shouldn’t) and doesn’t attempt to artificially boost his numbers (he shouldn’t), I’ll put it here to see if it got any traction. Out of sheer embarrassment for him, I shared it and encouraged people to help him out. This is just too cringeworthy to watch unfold on its own.

Is Twitter important? There’s actually as much of a risk to candidates saying the wrong thing on Twitter as there is of them gaining support as a result. But between Trump’s epic use of Twitter in 2016 and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the platform to shoot herself up to fame, candidates need to at least try to do well on the platform. Bill de Blasio is not doing well. That indicates two possibilities: either he and his team were ill-prepared to run for president or they’re not really running for president but rather running for a cabinet spot or something else in exchange for his help delivering the New York delegates to the eventual nominee.

Either option seems viable at this point.

One thing is certain: Bill de Blasio’s campaign for president should not be taken seriously by anyone. Democratic primary voters and Republican operatives need to all ignore him. He’s going nowhere in 2020.

The 1st Democratic debate was worse than expected which is saying a lot

If you were going into the 1st Democratic candidates debate with hopes of seeing pandering, high-dollar policy proposals, pandering, cringeworthy attempts to generate memes, questions answered in Spanish, unhinged notions on sexuality, cheerleaders in the media, and pandering, you got it.

In lieu of highlighting the gaffes, attempts at soundbites, and uncomfortable moments, it’s better to leave it to Twitter hot takes to do the job. Presented in no particular order:

One of the biggest reasons this was so bad is because they did everything they could to one-up one another. I know that’s what’s supposed to happen in debates, but there was a strange feeling that so many of them were saying the exact same thing while contradicting one another. I’m not really sure how they were able to pull it off.

But the part for me that raised an eyebrow was Julian Castro’s invocation of “Reproductive Justice.” He wants to give equal rights to abortion for transgender women. He’s ahead of the curve on this one; medical science hasn’t advanced to make that even possible, yet.

It’s been said already many times, but it’s worth repeating. President Trump won tonight’s debate. He came out looking like someone with solid policies compared to the unhinged “solutions” being proposed by these Democratic candidates.

What is the source of the Democrats’ obstruction strategy?

What is the source of the Democrats obstruction strategy

The evolution of the Mueller investigation and the overall Russian collusion hoax has been an interesting one to watch, especially for those of us who have a long enough memory to note this was supposed to be about the Trump campaign colluding with foreign entities to “steal” the 2016 election. That was the storyline for nearly two years, but since the release of the Mueller report, which indicated no collusion at all, the talking points of the Democrats have been 100% focused on obstruction.

Keep in mind, this was never supposed to be an obstruction investigation. That notion is, by its very nature, a separate occurrence that’s usually associated with wrongdoing to begin with, otherwise what was being obstructed? If there was no collusion, and the obstruction that was allegedly committed was supposed to stop the investigation into the collusion, then the only thing being obstructed was a bogus investigation. That doesn’t make obstruction right; even bogus investigations need to be allowed to reach their conclusion. But it’s a far cry from the narrative being pushed out by the Democrats, one which begs the question and relies on circular reasoning.

But that’s not being looked into by many, other than The Epoch Times.

This excellent video by Declassified’s Gina Shakespeare details a media investigation into the investigators that cuts to the heart of the matter. There was no collusion and any obstruction had to be manufactured. But the left continues to push it.

Democrats are fighting enforcement of immigration laws for a more dangerous reason than you realize

Democrats are fighting enforcement of immigration laws for a more dangerous reason than you realize

Immigration reform on multiple fronts is needed today, but not nearly as much as enforcement of current laws already on the books. But enforcement is becoming increasingly difficult as Democrats use every legislative roadblock they can muster to hamper ICE and keep border patrol under-resourced. Their motives are disingenuous; they claim to care for the migrants while doing everything they can to prevent them from receiving the help they need.

If we enforce current laws while working to improve them, the crisis at our southern border can be relieved a great deal. It’s not the full solution, but it would go a long way to stopping the massive migrant flow. As I noted on Twitter:

If you ask any conservative pundit, armchair politician, or keyboard warrior on social media why Democrats are obstructing enforcement of current immigration law, you’ll get a lot of correct (and some incorrect) replies. They’ll say Democrats want open borders, which is true. They’ll say they’re appealing to the Hispanic community for votes, which is true. They’ll even say they don’t care about America, which is partially true.

But there’s a bigger and much more dangerous reason I rarely hear, even from pundits. Unfortunately, conservatives are pragmatic in that we normally face the problems at hand. Progressives have an advantage over us from a strategy-perspective because they think in terms of decades instead of years. This is why they’ve been able to take control of the two primary information-providing industries in America: mainstream media and higher education. We’ve done a piss-poor job over the decades planting the right people in the right places. Progressives have been working on subverting 2020 since before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born.

It’s important to note a distinction before I return to the topic at hand. I’m not suggesting Democratic politicians think ahead. They can’t think beyond the next cocktail hour. But the various leaders of the radical progressive movements have been working to subvert our nation since the 1960s or earlier. They’ve done so in a coordinated fashion, one that acted to benefit them at the time while clearly setting up a path for deeper radicalization in the future.

Today is the future they’ve planned for, one in which socialism is becoming more popular and truth is heading towards extinction.

The real danger in the actions of today’s Democrats as it pertains to the border is the normalization of “immigrant” to refer to anyone from a foreign land regardless of legal status. This is why they cry about detention centers but fight against giving them the funding they need. It’s why they refer to anyone opposed to illegal immigration, including legal immigrants like me, as racists. They are using a technique known as jamming to insert their ideology through terminology repeated to the masses and invading the collective consciousness.

Conservatives must do everything we can to reverse the course being set by radical progressives through their pawns in the Democratic Party. “Immigrants” are legal immigrants, period. “Illegal aliens” are people from foreign lands who have breached our borders, circumvented our immigration laws, and/or taken advantage of loopholes to enter and remain in this country illegally. These are not a unified body of people. There are clear distinctions between someone like me, who was born in another country and went through the process of entering the United States and becoming an American citizen legally, and those who choose to break our laws so they can garner the fruits of being in America.

The American Conservative Movement is forming to do many things, including nominating conservative candidates to defeat “RINOs,” helping conservatives win in elections for offices currently held by Democrats, and educating the people about dangerous policies like Medicare-for-All as well as ideologies like socialism. But we cannot simply sit back and try to fight fire with fire when it comes to combating many of the techniques utilized by progressives. As they use jamming to change the way Americans think about “immigrants” in general, we can’t just sit back and say, “that’s not true.” We have to demonstrate our message is correct by offering clear and concise reasons the progressives’ message is wrong.

Having the truth on our side is a start, but it’s not enough if the post-truth society the progressives are building is allowed to go unchecked. We must fight smarter and harder. This is why the conservative movement must grow. Will you help?
