There is a lot of competition, but MSNBC´s Katy Tur is a strong contender for the title of "Most Obnoxious Media Leftist." In her latest embarrassment, she revealed on Meet The Press Daily a disturbing understanding of what life is like for Americans. To put it bluntly, in her world, politics is the supreme concern, and all life decisions quite naturally accord priority to the political consequences of personal choices. That must be why, without a flicker of hesitation, she could recommend that the Democratic Party simply "recruit" surplus Democrat voters from California to relocate to swing states that voted for
Another thread I read today was lamenting the fact that the Right is not as organized as the left. Why can´t we have huge protests, astroturfed issues etc. This article shows us why. Its not that we lack passion or that our issues don´t resonate. It is simply that we have lives, we do not see every action by every individual through a political lens. Politics is a necesary evil, not a lifestyle.
Every far left movement from the fascists of the 1920´s through the Khmer Rouge has used this everyday politicization as a means to enslave the public. By making everything about politics, the politicians can control everything. The right has always been about the individual, we don´t march as a collective because we don´t think as one. Nor would it be a good thing if we started to.
Katy Turs simplistic observation is simply an absurd example of this phenomena. It sounds so simple, they have all the voters they just need to move them around to where the politicians need them. Notice, she herself has not volunteered to leave the comfortable bubble of Hollywood to even out the voting field in Alabama.
Ideas like this are considered brilliant among soft in the lead liberals in the middle of their 4th gin and tonic. According to rough estimates, it would require a minimum of 25,000 transplant democrat voters in MI and in WI to change an election outcome. That adds up to $ tens of millions just in moving expenses. Katy Tur is super stupid.
FTA "Undertaking this major life change for the sole purpose of helping the Democratic Party places politics (federal politics) way above all other considerations... Control of the federal government becomes the motive for life´s major decisions."
These leftists on MSNBC and the rest of the msm truly are sick, mentally deranged. I used to be skeptical of those on this site and others that kept saying liberalism is a mental illness. I´m now a believer. These progressives are hungry for power and control over every aspect of your life but not theirs of course!
The need not go to the trouble of moving. They just get same-day voter registration passed and bus them in for a quick vote as they did in New Hampshire from Boston in the last election. Simple and cheep.
Actually, it has already happened. North Carolina was a very conservative (even though mostly by democrats) state. Then, big corporations moved leftist families from the Northeast to fill jobs in relocated businesses. Liberal university professors filled the new & expanded universities. This happened all over the south - Georgia, Alabama, Florida, etc. Some of those families lost their leftward leanings as they "assimilated". But not all of them. Even Texas was not immune - especially the Austin area and parts of the Dallas area. Wish it weren´t so - but ´tis.
The Libertarians are trying this in New Hampshire. So far it is not working. We bounce back and forth between Republican and Democrat control, and the state is a mess. The Secretary of State is a Democrat and is being blasted by our Democratic Congressional delegation for being on Trump´s Voter Fraud panel. Respect for opposing views is long gone.
This is happening in the Texas Hill Country. We are being invaded by Californians. As long as they become Texans, no problem, but if they stay liberals and vote Dem, we´re in trouble! Luckily, most that I know, even those from San Fran, act more Texan than us locals!
Some learned and accomplished folks, who deservedly command a great deal of respect and admiration, view the Trump presidency in an entirely different light from what millions of Americans see. To these sage and wizened critics, the president´s persona outweighs his achievements; his flaws overwhelm his strengths and, by extension, hamstring his ability to move an agenda forward. I believe that those harboring an anti-Trump mindset would do well to consider that the election of Trump was never about the man – it was not the "cult of personality" that the major media and the establishment Republicans portrayed it to be, but
Al Jazeera, my #1 information source for unbiased and accurate news (just kidding), nonetheless had an interesting story about black people who left America and moved to Africa because of...you guessed it: racism! They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return. A new wave of African[-]Americans is escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. From Senegal and Ghana to [t]he Gambia, communities are emerging in defiance of conventional wisdom that Africa is a continent everyone is trying to leave. I think it´s great that black Americans
Conservative hearts are aflutter, thanks to a memo that has been made available to members of the House of Representatives (if they go to secure room and read it). According to several members, there is finally hope of documenting the cabal that appears to have deceived the FISA Court with the Steele dossier to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, and then launched special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the bogus “collusion” charges, morphing into the Lavrentiy Beria strategy of “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” According to some members who have seen
Among the few givens in the unfolding drama of alleged Russia-Trump collusion is that former MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele wrote the Donald Trump-Russia dossier, alternately known as the "Steele Dossier." This is the notorious document that purports to detail "Republican candidate Donald Trump´s activities in Russia and compromising relationship with the Kremlin." The above quote is from the subhead of the document, titled "Company Intelligence Report 2016/080." Yet the same subhead hints at a disturbing pattern evident throughout the document: it appears to be written by someone whose native language is something other than English. The phrase should read, "Republican candidate Donald
The locally oriented website CWBChicago provides a valuable instructional video its readers in fashionable, upscale Chicago neighborhoods who (quite realistically) fear the ongoing predation by gangs running rampant elsewhere in the city, making it the murder capital of America. A compelling security camera video released by the Chicago Police Department depicts a gang driving into Wicker Park – an expensive area with great shopping attracting many pedestrians (and a Hollywood film named after it) – and carrying out an armed robbery on a pedestrian. The video is provided as a way for residents to minimize their danger: One of the best ways
On May 17, 2017, former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to investigate the supposed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. (snip) American Thinker interviewed Jim Kallstrom, the former assistant director in charge of the FBI office in New York and a twenty-eight-year veteran of that agency, on his views. The political attitude of some in the FBI led to an investigation started by then-FBI director James Comey on March 20, 2017. Kallstrom says, "I personally don´t understand why there is a special counsel at all, because the statute is very clear that there needs to be
Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment." In plain English: s--- is everywhere. (snip) Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country. Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve
The Democrats and their media allies did everything they could to defeat Trump´s tax cuts and reforms. They continually lied to the public in a bid to make them believe that less than half of the taxpayers would actually get cuts and that the bill was meant to benefit only big, rich corporations. Therefore, we got all sorts of articles, obviously fed to journalists by left-wing think-tanks and Democratic politicos, claiming that the tax cuts aren´t good or aren´t performing as promised. So, two weeks into a ten-year program, we are now hearing whining that all the promises of the broad-based
An excellent op-ed in the LA Times today by Kerry Jackson on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America." (snip) From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for this
Our first step in responding to the fake news firestorm about what Trump did or didn´t say about some African countries is to figure out what Trump actually said. Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it´s not irrational to question that Democrat´s veracity. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew
Note to Fusion GPS: If you´re going to mouth off to the media and ignore the public record, you´d better be prepared to have your confidential documents subpoenaed. That´s the takeaway from last week´s ruling by Judge Richard J. Leon, district court judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denying Fusion GPS´s request for a preliminary injunction against TD Bank. The injunction would have stopped the bank from complying with a subpoena for bank documents served by the House Intelligence Committee relating to the oppo research firm´s financial transactions with media and political clients from the period
Do I really have to explain President Trump’s strategy in reportedly using a vulgar expression to describe countries from which he believes the United States is taking far too many immigrants? (snip) Trump has forced everyone whom he outraged to repeat the words he wants to sink in with the public. The entire chattering class is now repeating that Haiti and some African countries and Salvador and other TPS abusers (changing a visa explicitly labeled as “temporary” into a permanent one) are bleepholes. The best of example comes from Trump’s sworn enemy Jim Acosta, who repeated the vulgarism in its
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
Former FBI director James B. Comey is joining the faculty of his alma mater, the College of William & Mary, and plans to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington center starting in the fall. Comey, whom President Trump fired last year, will have a nontenured position as an executive professor in education, the school announced Friday. His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.
During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as
More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to
Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
For the second time in less than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida, and this time, cops say, he threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer´s wife. Anderson, 24, who was arrested at around 2:15am for going 105 miles-per-hour in a 45 zone, was placed in the back of the police vehicle and ´stated that when he got out he was going to find (the officer´s) wife, f--k her and n-t in her eye,´ according to the the police report with the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. According to the Daily News, the police
There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.
Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to
