Before we examine Bush’s foolishness, we must first recognize a job well done. It’s unclear exactly who is responsible for determining membership in “The Squad,” but whoever that group or individual is, they are doing a fantastic job. For a group wishing to maintain a prominent level of knuckleheadedness – and that group already included AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar – they must be certain to guard against letting in any run-of-the-mill-idiot.
So, who would be more adept at deceit, and at pretending to be feeling something they were not? The part-time, high-school aged lifeguard? Or the clinically trained psychologist who is not only an expert on human behavior, but teaches that subject to college students and conducts research on such matters at one of the top universities in the country, Stanford University? You don’t need a PhD to answer that one correctly.
So, Terry McAuliffe and his campaign, who have been losing ground in their race to defeat Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin like CNN has been losing viewers, had a decision to make. They wanted to make a hit piece on Youngkin, obviously, so who to choose? Who should be the face of such an ad? Some milquetoast television announcer with a deep, melodious voice? Nah. Some up-and-coming, energetic young celebrity? Nope. They chose Eric Swalwell. What happened Terry, were Andrew Cuomo and Michael Avenatti too busy to make a cameo appearance for you?
The so-called “Town Hall Meeting” Thursday night was set up to be a cake walk for President Joe Biden. It was in Baltimore, Maryland, a city that is about as blue as it gets. It was on CNN, a network which is essentially just another arm of his Administration’s communication department. And it lasted for less-than seventy-five minutes which meant Biden could answer some questions and would still have time to go back to the White House basement and watch reruns of The Munsters.
Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten (I know, it still sounds weird to me too, saying “his husband”) became the parents of two newborn babies in August, and Buttigieg took some time off: fair enough. When my children were born, I took time off as well, and if I remember correctly, it was a week or less each time. I spoke with a few friends on this topic, and they had similar experiences; a week off for paternity leave, if not less.
But what earns Hillary her spot as Knucklehead of the Week is not her perjurious past, it’s her failure to recognize it. Hillary making the case that this is her “first foray into fiction” is akin to Michael Moore telling us that the ice cream cone he’s inhaling with chocolate hanging from his chin is his “first foray into desserts.”
Ask any American golfer who has ever had the honor to play in a Ryder Cup, ‘What’s the most pressure you’ve ever felt on a golf course?’ and the answer is likely to involve a Ryder Cup performance. The reason why players feel so much pressure is because the view the prospect of failure as not only failing themselves and their teammates, but their country as well. They care about how succeeding at the Ryder Cup, perhaps more so than at any other competition.
Trump has thrown his weight behind a conservative businesswoman named Harriet Hageman, and it’s likely to come down to a battle between those two, and you can take this to the bank: Hageman will point to Bush’s help as an example of all that is wrong with the GOP, and she will be correct. Nepotism, favoritism, and backroom deals. And with that approach, Liz Cheney will essentially be running against Donald Trump.
Within only days of Election Day last year, Biden and his cronies began touting the idea that “the adults are back in charge;” a poke in the eye to the Trump Administration, and a promise of better policies from Biden. But we are now over eight months into Biden’s reign of ineptitude, and that pledge for proficiency seems more ridiculous every day.
When first concocting the idea of “Knucklehead of the Week,” the idea of needing to pluralize the award at some point was considered likely. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were the favorites to take the prize first, but there was always a possibility that AOC and Rashida Tlaib would have to share the title. Or perhaps Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi would have to divvy up the honor. We never dreamed we’d have to spread it across approximately 170 million Americans
George Floyd had nine criminal convictions and had both methamphetamines and fentanyl in his system when he died in police custody in Minneapolis last year. Dajore Wilson loved SpongeBob Squarepants. Jacob Blake had been accused of sexual assault and domestic violence resisted arrest and was reaching for a knife when he was shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Dajore Wilson liked the color pink and enjoyed dancing.
Democrats have been talking about January 6th as much as possible since… well, since January 6th. Whether it’s Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Kamala Harris, January 6th is the cornerstone of their immediate political strategy, and they’ve been planning on Americans’ anger over the riots propelling them to victory during next year’s midterm elections. In poker parlance, the Dems are all-in on January 6th, and so is their media.
Not only is California still the land of fruits and nuts, the Golden State is fruitier and nuttier than ever, which makes the fact that Gruesome Newsom faces the distinct possibility of being recalled with the September 14th special election even that much more remarkable than it would be otherwise. In a country with some extreme leftists in positions of power, the Democrat Newsom ranks near, if not at the top of that list.
But what about politics? Shouldn’t politicians and their parties have a clear set of goals of what success looks like? Yes, and in fact, they do. We just have to look past their distractions and sift through the noise to understand what those interpretations of ‘success’ are, and occasionally we experience a moment of clarity and honesty like we saw last week with Ms. Psaki.
Over 400,000 Americans were killed during WW2, including the thousands who died on D-Day in one of the most breathtaking examples of courage and resolve in human history. And very few Americans complained – about the rationing, or the inconveniences, or the draft, or the massive amounts of casualties we endured. As a result, in less than four years after Pearl Harbor, the tyrannical regimes of Hideki Tojo, Adolph Hitler, and Benito Mussolini weren’t just defeated, they were obliterated.
I don’t know what Joy Reid’s particular religious views are, and I really don’t care. I’ll assume at this point that she’s not a Christian and is simply ignorant on certain matters of our faith. Regardless, one doesn’t have to be a Christian to recognize the reality of our religion. It is in Christian nations in the West, in countries such as ours, where women have achieved the highest level of equality.
We now know that no only did Fredo repeatedly interview his brother on-air with softball questions throughout the dark days of COVID, he’s also served as an advisor to the governor, and in fact reportedly advised his brother to resign. There’s nothing wrong with being a political advisor, and there’s nothing wrong with being a journalist. But there’s very, very wrong if you’re doing both simultaneously. CNN is faced with a no-brainer decision here: fire Fredo. Now.
Indeed, Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan, subject the Afghan people to unspeakable war crimes, totally destroy our national credibility among friends and foe alike, and to put all Americans at an exponentially higher risk of a terrorist attack has been implemented for a much more cynical purpose: politics.
Prominent Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Vice-President Kamala Harris have issued brief, tepid scoldings of Cuomo, but move on from the topic as soon as their compatriot questioners will allow. Considering the media’s complicity in the whole affair and their lack of journalistic inquisitiveness, this second option is clearly the most prudent to take if you’re a member of the Cuomo Choir.
In other words, homelessness continues to be on the decline in the U.S., if we exclude California. To their credit, the Chronicle looks inward in assigning the blame, stating, “The dire statistics underscore the extent to which state and local policies drive” the failure. The state and local policies they refer to are in the bluest of blue states, and the cities impacted are almost exclusively run by Democrats.
Therefore, it is not the would-be-voter’s fault that they forgot their ID, it is the fault of the racist law that the government is enforcing. Claiming disenfranchisement because someone forgot their ID on Election Day is the electoral equivalent of a student telling the teacher that the dog ate their homework. Only in this situation, the teacher (aka the Democrat Party) not only buys the story, they launch a campaign to have Cocker Spaniels outlawed.
The Left, particularly those leftists in academia, are attacking our language, and the evidence is everywhere. In case you were unaware, using the phrase “long time, no see” is insulting to Native Americans. Who knew? Using the words “crazy”, “thug” and “lame” are also off-limits, and could possibly be a trigger for one oppressed group or another. Come to think of it, how much longer will it be before the word “trigger” is unacceptable? It can only be a matter of time. Control the language, and you control the debate.
The CDC is an acronym for The Centers for Disease Control. Instead of originating with an agency that should be focused on fungi, viruses, and bacteria, shouldn’t such a policy come from a more appropriate department? Say perhaps… oh, I don’t know… maybe the Department of Housing and Urban Development?
For those who vocally oppose abortion, we do so on behalf of the most innocent among us: unborn children who can’t speak for themselves. For those who vocally oppose capital punishment, they do so on behalf of the least innocent among us: evil creatures such as Nicole Johnson. The doctrine of the Catholic Church does indeed recognize degrees of sin, and in the case of taking human lives there can be no more obvious distinction of degrees than when comparing these two situations.
We rose to the occasion with the “fifteen days to slow the spread.” We never overwhelmed the hospitals. We stayed in our houses and worked from home, and some of us even obeyed those idiotic one-way traffic shopping lanes at supermarkets in order to socially distance and protect the elderly from getting sick. But that’s done now, it’s over.
The current plague of violence is impacting the black community at a dramatically higher rate than other ethnic groups, with over 85% of all homicide victims last year being black folks, even though they make up only 44% of the population. If black lives truly matter, why hasn’t Black Lives Matter descended on Philadelphia to help put a stop to this massacre?
Blaming Facebook for killing people if users post erroneous information about vaccines is akin to accusing a bullhorn of murder if someone uses it to shout “fire!” in a crowded movie theater. Facebook is a platform, a tool, and like just about every other tool imaginable, people will misuse tools.
So rather than insisting on black students receiving better educations so that they can score better on the standardized tests, they just eliminate those test results from the equation. The students in question haven’t been helped by the watering down of requirements, but those geniuses running the institutions – the ones with a slew of letters after each of their names – they sure feel better about themselves when sipping their wine and gobbling from the cheese plate at their dinner parties.
When capitalists die, they hope they go to heaven. When socialists die, they hope they go to communism. And Democrats like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have been beating the drum for years now about how great socialism is. Cuba’s uprising is wholly contradictory to their narrative which is why their messaging is so peculiar.
While Smith was clearly naïve in suggesting that the English language is relatively easy to learn, his overall point that English-speaking stars help make the sport easier to sell is obviously true. The level to which the situation is problematic is certainly debatable, but Smith’s position was certainly reasonable. But reasonableness doesn’t matter to the woke.
This effort by Biden, Fauci, and the rest to divide us by vaccines is just their latest approach to identity politics. It’s not about public health and safety, it’s about power. At every opportunity they try to divide us by skin color, religion, gender, sexual preference, and age, among other traits. Now they’re trying to divide us based on antibodies.
Men being required to use the men’s room, and the banning of a six-foot-six-inch student with an Adam’s apple and a five o’clock shadow from competing against your daughter in volleyball is more than California can take. “We’re in the midst of an unprecedented wave of bigotry and discrimination in this country,” said Rob Bonta, California’s Attorney General. We are indeed seeing unprecedented actions taking place, Mr. Bonta. At least you’ve got that right.
The left has been screaming that the laws enacted in states like Georgia and Florida are akin to ‘Jim Crow,’ which is a lie. But those assertions beg a question. What’s more similar to Jim Crow: laws requiring people to show ID when they vote, or an election which resulted in over 100,000 fake votes being counted to the detriment of a black candidate, which Eric Adams is?
A Biden ‘gaffe’ is when he thinks he’s in Vermont when he’s actually in New Hampshire, or when he asks a wheelchair-bound politician to stand up. But when Ole’ Joe states that “Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” we’re getting a clear look into his half-empty brain and his attitudes towards race. In President Biden’s mind, white kids are talented and bright, and poor kids are black
To use a tennis analogy in respect to MLB, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision in early-April to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver was an unforced error. And a costly one. After receiving pressure from Democrats and their media regarding Georgia’s controversial-but-not-really-controversial voting law, Manfred bowed to Cancel Culture and demands from the MLB Players Union and succumbed.
It’s difficult to understand why Biden used that approach; whispering and leaning forward. The first time he did it came across as odd, but OK… whatever. When he did it again, I thought, “what is wrong with this guy.” And after he did it a third time, I was ready to call the Twinkie Truck to come and get him. There is no logical explanation to explain Biden’s performance.
A few moments of channel hopping various news broadcasts yesterday evening yielded the same results, with virtually all of them touching on Trump in some way or another, and the same with print newspapers and their websites. If we didn’t know any better by the amount of attention he gets, one could swear Trump was still in the White House and Biden was wandering around a dog track somewhere trying to place a bet on a race from last week.
Biden is losing it, there is no doubt. It’s official… the guy is a hot mess. Among other examples of his obvious, growing senility was the moment in which he repeatedly confused the nations of Libya and Syria. To be clear, it’s not like the president was jumbling Slovakia with Slovenia. Libya and Syria are on different continents, for crying out loud, with entirely different diplomatic dynamics. And they are both critical nations for very different reasons. It’s like confusing Oregon with Pennsylvania.
• This scandal was obvious going back to the Democratic primaries. If the media had reported accurately on it from the beginning, and Biden had been held to account for his possible illegal associations with his son’s business partners, there’s a good chance Biden never would have been nominated and another Democrat would have ran against Trump.
Let’s forget about the journalistic and political malpractice regarding hydroxychloroquine for a second and consider the human impact. How many COVID patients died because they refused hydroxychloroquine based on the media’s false reporting? How many doctors might have otherwise used the drug and saved patients if it wasn’t for the fake news narrative by Democrats and the mainstream media? Trump Derangement Syndrome isn’t just real, it can be deadly.
Adult teachers, like adult truck drivers and cable repairmen, faced different risks based on age and underlying health conditions. For those teachers who were at-risk, just like for the truck drivers and cable guys, they could have stayed home and not worked at all. Teachers with hypertension, diabetes, and lung disease could have stayed away, and the same with students. But that’s not what happened.
Some will opine that Crenshaw is insufficiently conservative which doesn’t fly. Crenshaw is plenty conservative. He’s Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, opposes the Affordable Care Act, and was a loyal defender of President Trump. He also has excellent political instincts and a sense of practicality about him. He has frequently appeared on various cable news outlets for a few years now, and we should expect that trend to continue
These men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice. They died for our country. They died to preserve the greatest country the world has ever known, and so that we who remain can enjoy the great freedoms and liberty for which they fought. Today is a day to acknowledge and show our gratitude for those sacrifices.
The idea that the virus originated in the Wuhan lab was never a “fringe theory” as the left and their media have tried to portray it. It was a no-brainer. A new virus emerges within a mile of a well-known lab which researches such diseases, and we were all supposed to think it was a coincidence? It was always a fringe theory to suggest that the virus didn’t come from the lab.
Many attribute the swing in public opinion to the advent of ultrasound, which is a point with some validity. Anyone who’s ever had the honor of being present when an expectant mother goes through the procedure understands the magic of ultrasound. Being able to see a child in the womb is a marvel, and is enough to make one weepy; God’s handiwork on full display.
The entire concept of ‘cannabis equity’ has nothing to do with cannabis. And despite the language being used by the leftist woke within the debate, it’s not about some sort of perceived historic racial injustice either. It’s about power, and it’s about furthering the left’s agenda.
• If we’re really concerned about COVID and preventing outbreaks of similar viruses in the future, wouldn’t the first step be to conduct a root-cause analysis? And if one were to perform a root-cause analysis on the pandemic, wouldn’t the starting point be to determine COVID’s origins?
Journalistic principles were disregarded, activists disguised as journalists helped prop up Lee’s lie as they promoted their America-is-bad narrative, and once again our mainstream media’s credibility has been severely damaged. These people are simply terrible at what they do.
When inflation sets in and prices begin rising, the effect on wealthy folks is minimal. If a gallon of milk costs $4 today, and $5 by the fall, and then $6 at Christmas, it’s no big deal to a millionaire. It’s the same with gasoline, or automobiles, or pot roasts. The fat cats just shrug their shoulders, start up the Mercedes, and head to the golf course.
For the record, Rep. Cheney, we don’t expect you to be silent about Trump or anyone else. It’s OK to criticize him, and it’s OK to despise him. But he’s been out of office for four months now. Get over it. Here’s a suggestion: Stand up straight, close your eyes real tight, click your heels together, and repeat after me. “There’s no one like Mitt Romney. There’s no one like Mitt Romney.”
The only racism coming from this debate is from the left. If you put forth the idea that minority folks in Georgia are less capable of acquiring and then remembering their IDs on Election Day, then you are the racist. If you claim that minority folks in Florida won’t be able to ensure their absentee ballots are received by election officials without such assistance, then you are the racist.
It would be difficult to find a bluer city than the City of Philadelphia, PA, and any finger-pointing to other political parties or ideologies would be absurd. Democrats have been running the city for decades, and they own the wreckage they’ve created.
Members of this so-called “board” were appointed by Facebook leadership, who are overwhelmingly leftist Democrats. Naturally, those who were appointed are overwhelmingly leftist Democrats as well. It’s ridiculous. This situation is like the Los Angeles Dodgers bringing their own umpires to a game and the fans believing those umpires had credibility.
Democrats are the very essence of bigotry, but they disguise their prejudice as wokeness and virtue-signaling. And while it must be enticing for Republican leaders to consider following the Democrats’ lead – thereby elevating women and non-white men to prominent positions simply because they are women and non-white men – they must resist the temptation.
The media spent the first six months of the pandemic essentially copulating with Democratic governors like New York’s Andrew Cuomo, while simultaneously vilifying and openly rooting against Republican governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis. DeSantis would “have blood on his hands” they told us, while concurrently paving the way for issuing an Emmy Award for Cuomo. In reality, the performances were the exact opposite of their narrative.
If you’re black, and you’re not fully on board with the “America is evil and we need socialism” agenda of America’s woke left, then you’re a heretic. And they will attack you in any way they can, up to and including using racial slurs in the process.
Government-funded institutions should not be holding and promoting events where the attendees’ skin color is a determining factor for admission; particularly when those attendees are school children. It’s wrong.
If COVID is so deadly and threatening, and if the vaccines are so effective and safe, why would Detroit, or any other city, need to essentially bribe teachers into getting the shots if their priorities are indeed the students’ educations and health?
If Floyd had been white, no one would have given a damn about his death and the only consequences for Derek Chauvin would have been a couple of extra hours of paperwork to fill out.
We are all entitled to our opinions on Derek Chauvin’s guilt or innocence. The trial had been widely covered and broadly watched. Considering the intricacies of the case, reasonable people could have opinions either for or against conviction. But unless we were one of the twelve individuals who made up that jury, our opinions didn’t matter, and neither did the opinions of people like Maxine Waters.
There are strong arguments to be made for opposing such laws, but playing the race card by pointing at some type of two-wheeled, watered down version of racist police brutality isn’t one them. And neither is the idea that helmets are unaffordable.
When GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney pointed out the formidable threat from Russia in 2012, Obama famously quipped, “The 1980s are calling and they want their foreign policy back.” Barack Obama was clever, articulate, and sharp-witted; and dangerously incompetent. Joe Biden is stupid, inarticulate, and dull-witted; and also dangerously incompetent.
If President Joe Biden and Dr. Fauci held a press conference tomorrow, and if they told us in order to fight COVID we all need to stand on our heads and spit wooden nickels out of our asses, we’d have millions of Americans immediately going online searching for where to buy wooden nickels.
DeSantis has clearly become the primary target of the mainstream media. They’re trying to have him replace Trump as the face of conservative America’s evil, and go after him at every opportunity. There’s only one problem: DeSantis is really, really good.
In an effort to satisfy the ever-increasing demands of The Woke, many of our institutes of higher learning have decided to either minimize or disregard the importance of grammar and spelling.
It may only be a matter of time before scientific disciplines such as Archaeology are pressured to submit to whatever leftist priority they may impede. But the rest of us must call this nonsense what it is: insanity.
This scheme is about climate change authoritarianism, striving for a “multi-racial democracy” (which is what we already are), and taking your money to give to someone else in the name of equity.
It’s April Fools’ Day, and what better way to pay tribute to stupidity than to consider the top ten foolish moments of our nation’s top fool, President Joe Biden.
The left has twisted the meaning of ‘racist’ to a point that many of us must take such an allegation as a compliment. Their approach has become so warped and perverse that virtually anyone can be called a racist at any time, for no other reason than disagreeing with them.
Criticisms of Biden’s mental acuity aren’t merely opportunities to get a laugh or some sort of revenge, they’re a legitimate concern. Joe Biden is supposed to be the leader of the Free World, yet he doesn’t appear capable of leading his local Rotary Club.
There is indeed a problem with violent crime and murder in America, and one that disproportionately affects those who happen to be black. The problem, however, isn’t white folks or whiteness, or some other race. And the problem isn’t law enforcement.
If you’re a resident of New York or California, however, and if you vote Democrat every November without giving the decision a second thought like so many do, you’ve got no one to blame but yourselves.
The insurrection in Myanmar is not some figment of the left’s imagination, it’s the real deal. It’s an actual coup d’état, and one that illustrates the utter ridiculousness of the Democrats’ accusations regarding January 6th.
For those of us who dislike everything pertaining to the British royals, this is fun to watch. Self-destruction in action. As they might say in the U.K., “the whole lot are bunch of wankers,” and they’re extremely leftist. It’s hard to feel sorry for any of them.
What was harmless and worthy of celebration only a few years ago is wholly unacceptable today, and what would have been viewed as racist then is virtuous now. It’s all very confusing, and not accidental.
The table is set, the wheels are in motion, and the executioner awaits. It’s only a matter of time. Andrew Cuomo’s political career is about to suffer the same fate as Maximilien Robespierre’s cranium, and it’s hard to feel any sympathy for him.
If you’re not outraged, you should be. You need to reevaluate. Dr. Seuss wasn’t racist and his drawings weren’t racist, and to label this development as a “slippery slope” would be an understatement.
A pair of women out to dinner with their husbands who excuse themselves to go powder their noses could find the local pervert waiting for them in the restroom; combing his hair, picking his nose, and peering over his glasses for a better look.
We can’t have our Customs and Border Patrol just releasing these children into society with nowhere to go. But Democrats and their media can’t have it both ways. If it’s good for you, it’s good for Trump, and if it’s bad for Trump, it’s bad for you. Make up your minds.
The vicious manner in which the show ridicules those suffering from eating disorders is wholly unacceptable; the Cookie Monster needs healing and compassion, not mockery.
Rush was essentially summarizing exactly what I already believed, deep down, but had not yet identified within myself. He knew my values and ideals before I did. Rush had an uncanny ability to compel listeners to look inwards and conclude, “Wow, he’s right, and that’s exactly what I think.”
If we use sound practical judgment in examining the accusations and behaviors of our friends on the left we can only conclude: the left either doesn’t understand what common sense is, or they’re intentionally distorting it.
Trying to drown out the voices of dissenting conservative voices will not help the conservative cause. Democrats like to claim they have a “big tent,” one that is tolerant of a variety of views. That claim is a lie, of course, and Republicans need to show them how it’s done.
There were thousands of New Yorkers dying due to their ineptitude, but the Cuomo Administration was fretting over what to hide from investigators. This story is one of the most outrageous examples of government corruption in decades.
It’s not the product they’re putting on the field, it’s not the quality of the broadcasts, and it’s not some sort of national distraction that’s been driving us away in droves. There is one, overwhelmingly obvious issue that has caused the NFL’s ratings freefall: their wokeness.
If the Washington bureaucracy and mainstream media can come up with enough proof to use against President Biden, it could be easy to compel him to vacate his office. “Get out of the way Joe, and spare yourself and your family prosecution.”
It’s remarkable that Democrats have positioned themselves in such opposition to law enforcement officers – accusing them of engaging in imaginary systemic racism – that on the day two are murdered by a child pornographer, our president has to qualify his statements in order to not alienate his base.
Democrats have made it clear that impeaching presidents who are no longer in office is not only acceptable, but “has to happen.” They’ve also made it clear there doesn’t need to be an actual underlying crime that has been committed. Therefore, isn’t it time we impeached Jimmy Carter?
We have President Biden who admits there’s nothing he can do, and Dr. Fauci who’s delighted because Biden won’t be applying any consequences for his mistakes. Meanwhile, they’ll just continue blaming President Trump. How liberating.
Let’s take a moment to reflect on the recently completed presidency of Donald J. Trump, and consider how things might have turned out had Trump handled a few situations differently. Second-guessing and Monday morning quarterbacking, yes, but such exercises can be productive.
Indeed, the identity of President Trump’s successor is irrelevant, as are the actual facts that might pertain to that individual. The Republicans could bring on the second coming of Abraham Lincoln himself, and Democrats would portray him as being an ignorant redneck with an inferior education; and a racist, of course.
With impeachment and the impending Senate trial, Democrats will keep Trump and the riots on the front burner of our national dialogue longer than they would have been otherwise, and they will try to get as much of their radical agenda through as possible. But hoping to distract voters from the absurdity of issues like Medicare-For-All and the repealing of tax cuts by dwelling on Donald Trump won’t work. And unless they can get questionable Democrats in the Senate to abolish the filibuster, their radical agenda is largely doomed anyway.
Washington, DC. – At the end of the craziest news week in recent memory, some thoughts and observations. Topic #1: Congress convened on Wednesday in
The reaction of Officer Sheskey was not only appropriate, it was a textbook example of the how an officer should handle such a situation. There was no telling what Blake’s intentions were, and any other response from Sheskey would not only have been dangerous to him and his fellow officer, it could have been deadly.
The only way for citizens in a republic to hold their elected officials accountable is at the ballot box. Do a good job with integrity and you get reelected. Do a lousy job or engage in corruption and you get voted out. That answerability is the most critical aspect of our form of government, and an honest media that accurately reports the facts regarding those who would be elected is arguably the most important player in the electoral process.
In this installment of Weekend Conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative view the Christmas explosion in Nashville through the lens of domestic terrorism and look down the road at existing threats as well as potential threats.
What has to be a questionable strategy, however, is the amount of Hollywood celebrities who have weighed-in on the races in support of the Democrats. If you’re a Georgia voter and you see Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick and Justin Timberlake giving their opinions on who you should vote for, unless you’re a under the age of twenty-three there should be only one thought in your mind – “Shut the hell up, Hollywood.”
Included in the nonsense is funding to study a riot in Springfield, Illinois. If you’re saying to yourself, “Self… I don’t remember a riot in Springfield, Illinois,” that’s understandable. The riot they’re planning on studying happened in 1908.
There’s no worldwide group-hug between seven billion of us coming any time soon. But for the first in decades we have reason to celebrate peace and cause for optimism; and President Donald J. Trump deserves significant credit for this development.
We need safe highways and efficient air traffic control, which means we need Buttigieg to do well. Pete Buttigieg’s sexual orientation has nothing to do with his job performance, but that is, after all, the entire point. Neither Pete Buttigieg nor anyone else should be turned down for a job just because they are gay, but they shouldn’t be hired strictly for that reason either.
Forget that tens of thousands have died due to Cuomo’s utter incompetence with COVID, and forget that he’s an overall lousy governor; Cuomo is unassailable. If indisputable evidence were to come out tomorrow proving Cuomo barbecues puppies and prefers them medium-rare and served with hollandaise sauce, the mainstream media would simply shrug their shoulders and ignore it.
Franklin and our other Founding Fathers understood the importance of being unified, and they asserted that such unification must be centered on common values shared by all Americans. Almost two-and-a-half centuries later, however, our friends on the Left appear hell bent on division, not unity. Separating us by inherent traits is the objective, and identity politics is the tactic. Common values be damned.
Make no mistake: it may appear that many in today’s Democratic Party are merely flirting with socialism, but communism itself is a natural progression. And if the outright embrace of socialism is not yet mainstream ideology for Democrats, it’s not far off.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard discuss how the devastating COVID pandemic has been politicized by Democrats and the mainstream media.
For those that argue a scandal with Hunter doesn’t equate to a scandal for Joe, consider what the media’s coverage would be if the situation was reversed. What if we found out this week that those old accusations against Donald Trump Jr being nefariously involved with Russian characters weren’t just imaginary infractions, but were indeed being investigated by the Justice Department and a Senate Committee?
Motherhood may be the single-most beautiful example of God, of nature, and of humanity. It is the very essence of love. Childbirth and motherhood are simply magical, and they are a blessing that can only be experienced by women. Men can never experience what mothers do. Instead, we are left to marvel at the miracle of motherhood and to do everything we can to support and protect it.
In the midst of all the hubbub this past summer, as our comrades from AntiFa engaged in their peaceful riots, one aspect of American injustice that continued unchecked and without mention from our allies in the mainstream media was the mounting problem of systemic sexism. Everywhere we look, the problem of men being discriminated against and mistreated not only persists, but grows.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope discuss how Americans can and must receive fair and honest news from alternative media sources under a Biden-Harris presidency.
We can debate about what Good Ole’ Joe was trying to say, but there’s one thing that the exchange illustrates perfectly and of which we can be totally clear: Joe Biden’s mindset. Biden is not going to govern as a moderate and he is not going to be a barrier between the radical left and the center of his party. Joe Biden will be completely malleable.
Undoubtedly, America’s past is not perfect, but we have consistently taken steps to right our wrongs. Those steps have resulted in the election of racial minorities to the highest offices in our country becoming commonplace. No, America is not racist, but we are instead showing the rest of the world once again what true freedom and equality looks like. God bless America.
#4 Brian Stelter (AKA Cryin’ Brian) –
Until recently, Stelter was best known for frequent on-air sobbing at a level to make even colleague Don Lemon blush. But in late-October, Stelter gained further notoriety when he came to the defense of fellow CNN personality Jeffery Toobin. Toobin, as you may recall, was caught spanking his monkey during a Zoom call with colleagues from CNN and The New Yorker. So what was Stelter’s defense of Toobin? Stelter explained that Toobin’s behavior was “an accident.” Yup, because that type of thing happens all the time, don’t you know. One minute, everything is fine, you’re on a Zoom call interacting with folks, and then wham! All of sudden, you’re choking your chicken… accidentally.
“One of my biggest frustrations with George W. Bush was his reluctance to confront adversaries and hold them accountable, including those in the media. Both John McCain and Mitt Romney were infuriating in the way they always tried to play nice with Democrats, and not make waves. As mentioned, and I think we both agree, the GOP needs to be respectful and avoid the personal hit-jobs the Democrats like to employ. But I think there’s a valuable lesson to be learned in the way Trump hit back.”

While Mr. Biden was ranting about something called “badacathcare” a few weeks ago, many of us scratched our heads in confusion. But earlier in the election cycle when Biden famously lectured, “You ain’t black,” his message was unmistakable, and it certainly wasn’t unifying. Similarly, when Biden was reminiscing about his past kids rubbed his hairy legs earlier in the campaign, many of us reflected on Biden’s more recent history, such as that time he preached “Mitt Romney’s gonna put y’all back in chains.” That statement wasn’t very unifying either. But let’s put that all behind us now, because Joe Biden has pledged to bring us together, and we all know that Good Ole’ Joe is a man of his word.
We’re in the midst of a mass exodus of college students heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday. They are our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and cousins. Many of them will have endured three months of leftist indoctrination in the faux-reality that is academia. The Left tends to disparage our country and its history, paint a rosy picture of socialism/communism, and demonize anyone who dares to disagree. We should expect that such an approach has probably been applied to the still-developing minds of those returning young scholars we love so dearly.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope look back on the coverage – and sometimes lack of coverage – of issues critical to voters. Is this the Republicans version of Russia, Russia, Russia, or is there something more sinister going on?
Whatever voting irregularities, improprieties, and fraud occurred, we need to get to the bottom of them. Expose the perpetrators, prosecute them, and imprison them; no doubt. But getting our hopes up for something that looks increasingly unlikely to happen is not helping anyone. Knock of the hyperbole, tell us the facts, and give them to us straight.
The effort to shift from in-person voting to mail-in voting was never about protecting citizens from COVID-19. In April, Wisconsin conducted their primary elections with virtually no mail-in voting and over 400,000 folks voted in-person, and COVID-19 cases actually declined in the following weeks.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope examine the level of success achieved by President Donald J. Trump in his effort to ‘Make America Great Again.’ At the time of our correspondence, the election results are still unclear, therefore the contents of this conversation can be considered as either a halftime analysis or a single-term evaluation.
It’s human nature to want to benefit financially from hard work, risk and innovation. There are thousands of scientists and corporate executives who are millionaires because they were responsible for the development of life-saving medicines. Not only should we congratulate them on their financial success, we should collectively shake their hands, and say, “Thank you, and may God bless you.”
If we can’t trust an election’s results, how can we trust the government that election yields? This was a point that was frequently made during the Russia Hoax, and one that would have been justifiable if there had been any validity to their accusations. Any democracy needs to have faith in the integrity of their elections, and failure to achieve that trust will only sow increasing resentment and skepticism. Regardless of that fact, those who should care don’t, and choose instead to brush off the idea as if it was just dandruff on their overcoat; nothing to see here, folks.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope explore the tumultuous week of the election. How are votes not counted immediately? How many votes are legitimate? What does this mean for the country? Parker and PF wade into the quagmire.
In spite of four years of the mainstream media accusing Trump of every form of bigotry imaginable, Trump saw his percentage of voters increase in every demographic but one – white men. Blacks, Hispanics, women, LGBTQ members, and so on; every other group saw an elevation in the percentage of Trump voters in 2020 compared to 2016, in spite of the fierce efforts to smear him. Remarkable.
The Left and their media can’t afford to have President Trump’s positions legitimized. If someone comes out and backs Trump’s COVID-19 plans, the media have to cover it up. They have to discredit them, even if that means winking and nodding to Joe Biden’s absurd claim that 44,000 scientists/doctors are “nobody.”
If Donald J. Trump wins reelection today, it will make David’s defeat of Goliath look like a foregone conclusion. “Goliath got his ass kicked,” said the Philistine, “big deal.” Never in American history has a presidential candidate faced such committed, sustained, and malicious opposition from such formidable opponents. One could credibly argue that a Trump victory would be nothing short of miraculous considering the headwinds against which our 45th President has struggled. Buster Douglas defeating Mike Tyson was ho-hum compared to Trump’s challenges. Harry Truman’s defeat of Thomas Dewey was a walk in the park.

I get the whole “Go to work in flip-flops and hang out by the office ping pong table at lunch” culture that Big Tech has going on. It must be a cool environment to work in, truly. But for those who missed it, Jack Dorsey was channeling his inner Jeff Spicoli during a televised Senate hearing that was watched by millions of people.
Joe Biden is the quintessential Washington D.C. swamp-dweller who is uncompromising in his craving for power . He wants you to think he’s someone else because he has a 47-year record with virtually no accomplishments to tout. He wants you to think he’s someone else because the real Joe Biden is not particularly electable. Don’t be fooled: we know who Joe Biden is, and he’s none of the things he’s pretending to be.

The media’s indifference to the Jeffery Toobin scandal is just one more example of their aversion to the truth.
