Politico "Journalist" Makes A Mockery Of Journalism


              Conservatives tend to like to preserve the best of past ages and accumulated wisdom whereas progressives aren’t interested in anything that existed prior to last Thursday. An objective person must admit that journalists, at least, just aren’t what they used to be. Sorry, progs.

              To wit: one august member of the Fourth Estate, Ryan Lizza, chief Washington correspondent for Politico, recently put the following comment and question to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. "I think a lot of people are trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is and the proper place of the Confederate flag. Does President Trump believe that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War?" McEnany replied, "Well, your first question is absolutely absurd. He's proud of the United States of America," before quickly moving on to address somewhat less insane questions and inferences.

              I don’t care what one thinks of President Trump. Love him, hate him, or still don’t know what to make of him, the holder of his office deserves at least a modicum of respect. But the very same “journalists” (I just threw up a little in my mouth) that “felt thrills going up their legs” as they slobbered all over President Barack Hussein Obama have spent more than three years vilely smearing Trump at every single opportunity. And then some.

             No member of the media ever asked Obama if he thought “it was a good thing that the Holocaust ended when it did.”

            Why hasn’t a reporter asked Bernie Sanders if he thought “it was a good thing the United States won the Cold War?”

And someone should ask Rep. Alexandria Occasional-Cortex Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) if she knows who won the Civil War. Or who George Washington was? Or who is buried in Grant’s Tomb. Or what two plus three equals.  

And Ryan Lizza certainly needs to be asked why he thinks he is a journalist.


Minneapolis City Council Members Hire Private Security


           The far-left Minneapolis City Council recently voted-- once again-- to disband the city’s police force. Unanimously. In response to a question on national television, one of them famously (infamously) replied that if your house is being broken into in the middle of the night and your first impulse is to call the police, that impulse is coming from a “place of privilege.” Better to let countless folks of all races get robbed, raped and killed than take the chance that one more black man with a lengthy rap sheet should be the tragic victim of a rogue bad cop.

           Now three members of that very same city council have hired private security to protect
themselves from lawlessness and criminality. Andrea Jenkins, Phillipe Cunningham, and Alondra 
Cano —all of whom have been outspoken proponents of defunding and disbanding the police — are
 costing city taxpayers $4,500 per day in private security fees, KMSP-TV reported. A city 
spokesperson told the station that the city has spent over $63,000 of taxpayer’s money on security for 
the despicable trio over the past three weeks. The private security details “are intended to be a 
temporary bridge until other security measures can be implemented by council members,” according
 to KMSP. Like moats and draw bridges, perhaps?

          Jenkins claims she has been receiving “threatening communications” from “the large number 
of white nationalists in our city,” a claim utterly preposterous on its face. There are no more than a 
handful of “white nationalists” in Minneapolis, an overwhelmingly progressive city, and what few 
there may be are seldom if ever seen or heard from. I know. I’ve lived there. She understandably may 
have received uncomfortable communications from her neighbors…whose tax money is paying for
 her protection while she has abandoned them to the figurative wolves. Talk about taxation without 
representation!

       The Minneapolis Police Department told KMSP there has not been a single police report filed for threats against any of the city's council members, though it added one could conceivably have been filed confidentially.

    What a place of privilege these asshats come from! If they refuse to protect the people they “serve,” they certainly deserve no protection. They are sentencing countless others to needless risk, worry—and death-- by disbanding the police force. They should be willing to accept the same fate.

Pelosi, Schumer Can't Recall George Floyd's Name


            
In a heartfelt tribute to George Floyd, the black man killed at the hands of a soulless Minneapolis police officer last month, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recently reflected on his memory. She recalled that Floyd’s brother asked her if she’d name her party’s police reform bill after him. Pelosi said she would recommend that to the Judiciary Committee, but only “if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name.” She added that, “he said it is” and noted that they were “very proud.”
George Kirby was an African-American comedian and impressionist who frequently appeared on variety and game shows in the 1960s and 1970s.
Very proud indeed. She was so moved by the death of a black man she and her party have since used like a rented tuxedo that she couldn’t come up with his name.
But she wasn’t alone in her disgrace. Chuck Schumer (Moron-N.Y.) took to the Senate floor to display his ignorance and hypocrisy. He said, “Who do you believe when it comes to civil rights and police accountability: Mitch McConnell, or the lawyer for the families of Floyd Taylor, of George Taylor, George Floyd—and Breonna Taylor?” I guess the third time’s the charm, Chuckles! Who do you believe? I think you just made that decision easy for us, Chuck.
There are Democratic politicians all over the country trying to recall the name of a man they claim is a nearly Christ-like figure in his world-wide impact. Ponder that. And, as always, they are getting away with this evil charade because there is no free press left in the West. Those in the media have, willingly, permanently, attached themselves to the soft, fleshy ass of so-called progressives the world ‘round like arrogant remoras…affording no choice but for us non-elites to push back or simply fade away. (Tragically, we appear to be doing the latter, emboldening them even more.)
You can just picture Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez approaching the dais and saying, “People’s of Color Unite! Like, Unite in the memory of Lloyd George, er, like…Boy George—uh.” Who can’t see Hillary Clinton pompously orating, rambling on as to how “this is all about George Jefferson, um, I mean George Plimpton, err…?”  
It’s only a matter of time and opportunity before Joe Biden says, “It’s bad enough that 120 million Americans have died since Donald Trump brought the cornhole virus to America. But to lose a man like Curious George to rampant police violence is truly tragic.”
Don’t think the media is totally biased? What if President Trump had gotten George Floyd’s name wrong? Repeatedly? Think CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and The Washington Post would have hidden that fact? Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Rachel Maddow, et. al., would have been giddy in their vicious denunciations of Trump. It would have dominated the 24-hour news cycle for weeks. Headlines would scream, “Trump Doesn’t Care Enough About Black People To Remember their Names,” “Black People All Alike According To Trump,” and “Trump In Obvious Cognitive Decline.”
The majority of today’s Democrats are ignorant. Of history, economics, human nature, etc. Sadly, some are stupid. This is why they shun debate in favor of attempted character assassination. Almost all are hypocritical. Virtually all choose power over what’s best for their country. Republicans, on the other hand, tend to be spineless and craven, caving or compromising with hypocritical idiots who could care less about their countrymen with nauseating frequency.
And, incredibly, statues of men like George Washington, U.S. Grant, and Abraham Lincoln are being pulled down. None of whom were ignorant, stupid, spineless or craven. All of whom cared more about their countrymen—and country—than they did about their own power.



"Defund The Police" Rally Requests What?


              So this happened recently: a police officer was summoned to provide security for a protest. What’s notable about that you ask? Let the officer himself explain. "So I come in this morning and we're informed there's gonna be a protest to 'defund the police.' Well, that's fine, I like protests. Except they requested a police presence, you know, for their safety, at the 'defund the police' event. I shit you not."

              Idiocy? Chutzpah? Hypocrisy? All of the above?

              What’s next for leftists, asking for a priest or pastor to pray for the abolition of Christianity?

              John Lennon wrote: “Imagine there’s no Heaven. It’s easy if you try.”

  I say: “Imagine there’s no reason. And kiss your ass goodbye.”

Harvard Theater Presenting All-LGBTQ Version Of "1776"


              Diane Paulus, a Harvard University theater professor, is directing a bold new interpretation of the classic musical “1776.” In this version, the cast will be entirely comprised of female, nonbinary, trans, and genderqueer individuals. “1776” started its Broadway run more than 50 years ago and was also made into a major motion picture in 1972. It focuses on the summer of ’76 when the Founding Fathers tirelessly debated whether or not to declare independence from Britain. Harvard’s American Repertory Theater website states that Paulus’s adaptation will reexamine “this pivotal moment in American history,” while featuring “multiple representations of gender, race, and ethnicity that allow this revival of 1776 to more broadly reflect today’s America, our America.” It further states, “As artists, we are embracing our American history as a human predicament and are committed to the process of learning from the past in order to move forward together.” American history as a “human predicament?” Translation: “We can overcome this nation’s straight, white, cis-male Christian heritage, overturn capitalism, and live happily ever after in a glorious Socialist LGBTQ Paradise free of religion and restraint, if only you all will follow our lead.”

              I’m sure the American Repertory Theater, or ART as it’s known to the culturati, has a series of woke adaptions and re-imaginings of traditional Broadway shows planned for the future. I would expect to see shows titled “A Porous Line,” “Harry Poppins,” “Diddler on the Roof,” “Hello, Collie,” and “My Bare Lady” soon. Rumor has it a new production of “Cats” is in the works, too, with the whole cast made up of straight males in dog costumes. Moreover, an anonymous source close to ART tells me that the theater will also be adapting several classic motion pictures to the stage. The source says plans are already underway for an adaptation of  2001’s “Pearl Harbor,” featuring only non-binary, pansexual Albanians, and of the iconic John Wayne movie “El Dorado,” in which “the Duke” is played by RuPaul and the rest of the cast members are lesbian Chinese Satanists.

              Critics have already gotten word of ART’s plans and have dubbed the upcoming productions “a more accurate representation of today’s reality,” a  “much needed correction of problematic non-portrayals of marginalized populations and communities,” “delicious,” and “to die for.”


British Movie-Streaming Service To Apply "Outdated Attitudes" Warnings


              The British movie-streaming service Sky has demonstrated its woke bona fides by slapping “outdated attitudes” content warnings on numerous movie titles in this era of heightened cultural sensitivity. This, of course, was done in an attempt to get ahead of any potential backlash, something very hard to do at the moment. For example, a description on the Disney animated classic “The Jungle Book” now reads, “This film has outdated attitudes, language and cultural depictions which may cause offence today.”

              A spokesperson for the service told Variety: “Sky is committed to supporting anti-racism and improving diversity and inclusion both on and off screen. We constantly review all content on Sky’s owned channels and will take action where necessary including adding additional information for our customer to allow them to make an informed decision when deciding what films and TV shows to watch.” Sky has reportedly committed to spending 10 million British pounds, the equivalent of 12 million U.S. dollars, in support of anti-racism and inclusion efforts throughout the company.

              Many other films have been subjected to the dreaded outdated attitudes warning, including “Gone with the Wind,” “Aladdin,” “Lawrence of Arabia,” and “Flash Gordon.” (Apparently, “Flesh Gordon” was deemed inoffensive.)

              Soon all broadcast and cable television stations and networks, streaming services, and online video providers will be utilizing similar “outdated attitudes” warnings. The beloved early American sitcom “Leave it to Beaver,” a show that aired in the 1950s and 1960s, will surely get an outdated attitudes warning attached to it. Many today could be offended by its depictions of decency, civility and respect for elders and authority. Another television show, “Hill Street Blues,” would be labeled as potentially offensive for its portrayal of some cops as human and well-intentioned. The formerly iconic movie “The Ten Commandments” content warning would center around its appalling depiction of Biblical events as real and somehow useful and/or instructional. It is also potentially triggering to Muslims. Disney’s “Pinocchio” will get the caution due to its stereotypical depiction of Italian inventors and its exploitation of marionettes and those with extendable noses.

Do All Lives Matter Or Don't They?


              Sacramento Kings long-time play-by-play announcer Grant Napear was recently placed on leave by his employer, radio station KHTK, after he tweeted “All Lives Matter.” Former Kings star Demarcus Cousins asked the broadcaster what he thought of the Black Lives Matter movement and Napear subsequently tweeted: “All Lives Matter… Every Single One!”

              Sickeningly, Napear apologized, an act of needless contrition published by The Sacramento Bee. He stated: “I’m not as educated on BLM as I thought I was. I had no idea that when I said ‘All Lives Matter’ that it was counter to what BLM is trying to get across.” KHTK is reportedly “investigating” Napear’s tweet.

              What the hell kind of bizzarro world are we now living in? All lives do matter. Period. That is inarguable. No one but a crazed fiend can rationally argue otherwise. If all lives don’t matter, abortion is perfectly fine, as was the Holocaust. Guess the NAZIs weren’t wrong. Killing a few million Jews isn’t beyond the pale if their lives don’t matter.

              All lives matter. God/Jesus made that pretty clear. So did the founders. If not, maybe black lives wouldn’t matter. Or are we saying only black lives matter and/or white lives don’t matter? All lives matter simply means exactly what it says, there is no hidden meaning. The phrase can’t possibly be controversial. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., would have loved the phrase and the acceptance behind it. It is rationally and morally impossible to disavow the fact that all lives matter.

              If anyone-- black or white, Democrat or Republican-- truly believes that all lives do not matter, they may be on their way to a very warm place for eternity. Sayonara.



All Lives Matter    All Lives Matter     All Lives Matter   All Lives Matter



All Lives Matter   All Lives Matter   All Lives Matter    All Lives Matter



All Lives Matter    All Lives Matter    All Lives Matter    All Lives Matter

Antifa Actual Fascists


              It is preposterously absurd when leftists and anti-Trumpers claim the president is a fascist, a tyrant, a would-be dictator who might refuse to leave office, and who may ban all criticism of his administration, etc. It is equally as insane when mainstream media types, academics, entertainers, Democratic politicians, and assorted other leftists, characterize groups like Black Lives Matter and antifa as peace-loving, patriotic freedom fighters, bursting with tolerance and inclusiveness towards all.

              This is demonstrably false. We know this beyond a shadow of a doubt because mainstream media types, academics, entertainers, Democratic politicians, assorted other leftists, and groups like Black Lives Matter and antifa incessantly issue the most vile attacks on Trump (and his supporters) with the utmost impunity-- and braggadocio-- and are never incarcerated, fined or even held accountable in any way for their words or actions. In fact, they are celebrated in their own circles for doing so, while those they attack—with the exception of Trump himself—don’t even bother to fight back or defend themselves in any substantive way. Moreover, they are routinely feted, lionized, and granted special privileges. They are allowed to loot stores, deface and burn down buildings, and even annex significant portions of large American cities with the intent of turning them into independent sovereign nations while societies’ elites laud them for their “mostly peaceful” behavior and look forward to a “summer of love.”

              Any sentient, honest human being knows who the fascists are. But nearly all of them are afraid of stating the obvious truth. Antifa is a neo-fascist conglomeration of momma’s boys-- entitled, craven little pre-mature ejaculators who act tough when no one pushes back. Black Lives Matter is a deluded organization, donations to which end up being funneled through ActBlue to Democratic politicians, representatives of the very party that has virtually been defined by its contempt and ownership of African-Americans.

              Antifa and BLM are nothing more than the militant wing of the Democratic-Socialist Party, emphasis on Socialist. The mainstream media has devolved into nothing more than the house organ for any group that opposes President Trump and Republicans in general.

Biden Says He'd Mandate The Wearing Of Facial Masks


Former Vice President and presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he would use his executive power to require Americans to wear face masks in public to slow the spread of COVID-19 if he were president, KDKA-TV reported recently.

Some states and localities currently require masks in public, while others recommend them without requiring them to be worn. President Trump has no intention at this point to make wearing them a federal mandate.

But, when Biden was asked about a potential federal mask requirement by KDKA's Ken Rice, he replied: "I would go back to making sure that everybody had masks, that you had PPE lined up, making sure we stockpile all the things that we need and we don't have now. The one thing we do know, these masks make a gigantic difference. I would insist that everybody in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen, it would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks."

Rice then asked the perpetually addled Democratic front-runner, "Couldn't you use your federal leverage to mandate that?” Biden responded, “Yes.” Rice followed up by saying “Would you?” Biden said “Yes, I would from an executive standpoint, I would.” He would. He would.

Rice sought to make certain there was no room for misinterpretation by inquiring of Sleepy Joe, "So, you would, in effect, mandate the wearing of masks,” to which he replied, "I would do everything possible to make it required the people had to wear masks in public.” Poor syntax notwithstanding, I think we get the message. But the president has no legal, Constitutional power to dictate what Americans wear.

Biden then seemed to find his stride and expounded on his earlier answers. He proclaimed his fondness for Zubaz, a popular, baggy, pants-like apparel item in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and said, “I’d make the wearing of Zubaz mandatory, too. I liked them, they were cool. And adult diapers, I’d mandate the hell out of those things. And maybe corsets for women again, you know—” at which point several aides rushed in and took the microphone away from him.  

Where are the geese when you need them?

Elderly Blind Woman Banned From park For Handing Out Christian Pamphlets


              An elderly blind visually-challenged woman has been banished from a public park and library in Rhode Island for the crime of handing out Christian pamphlets to fellow park goers. Officials of the Memorial and Library Association have forbidden Gail Blair from entering Wilcox Park and Westerly Library for two years. Association members called the police on Blair after noticing that she would sometimes stop and chat with patrons and offer them a copy of the Gospel of John.

              Blair, represented by First Liberty Institute and attorney William Wray Jr., recently filed a discrimination complaint with the Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights against the library association. She says she was unlawfully discriminated against on the basis of her disability and religious beliefs. She noted: “The Police Department searched for all incidents that involved complaints or trespass notices issued to anyone for distributing information, pamphlets, soliciting, selling, hawking, etc., and found none apart from when the Association called the police to eject me from the park. My conduct did not violate the ‘Rules of Conduct’ posted by Westerly Library and Wilcox Park. Nor did it violate any of the Park’s Guidelines.” Blair lives next to the park and says she "cannot independently access another public park or another free public library."

              What are progressives going to do when there are no police officers to save them from the threat of disabled ladies passing out Christian literature? Be careful what you ask for.

              In one sense, Blair had it coming. Had she just been tearing down statues in the park or burning and looting the library she would never have gotten herself in trouble. In fact, she would have garnered support from most of humanity. Celebrities would have lauded her. But tolerance can only go so far. She still has time to repent, though, if she would just start spray-painting “Black Lives Matter” on everything she comes across.

              The Gospel of John states: “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

              Maybe not. But the light grows dimmer, the darkness ever closer.
