Well, the Democrats spent about $40M to try and win a seat in a purplish district and failed. Pajama Boy not only underperformed Hillary in the district; he got fewer votes than the 2016 Democrat candidate in 2016.

So, maybe they need to up the ante and, in 2018, spend $50M on each of the 25 districts they need to retake the House. A cool $1.25 Billion. (About what Hillary spent in 2016, BTW.)

One potential fly in the ointment… the Democrat Party is broke and had a terrible fundraising month in May.

Many Democrats really believe that recruiting clones of Liz Warren and Kamala Harris and engaging in more street violence will help them flip red districts in the Midwest to blue. It won’t.

A few Democrats recognize that normal Americans care about the economy, (also, border security, and protecting civil society from terrorism {the Trump agenda}). Not a phony, “Russia Russia Russia” scandal ginned up by Hillary Clinton campaign operatives after losing an election, or phony, virtue-signaling issues like Transgender locker rooms for teenagers. But all of the money and power in the Democrat Party is held by wealthy people in Washington, New York, San Francisco, and Chicago.

(BTW: It also looks like Trump was right about illegal voters. There may have been five million or more of them in the 2016 election.)

Honestly, the best shot the Democrats have at retaking the House and Senate in 2018 is for Republicans to continue to sabotage the Trump agenda. The Republican Establishment may despise PDT, but Republican voters want border security, want tax and regulatory reform to help grow the economy, want a revitalized manufacturing sector, and want a rational policy response to the growing threat of Islamic Supremacist terror. If Republicans in Congress don’t deliver on this agenda, then they will bodily function away their majority.  The only question is whether they hate Trump more than they love their phony-baloney jobs.

At least some Democrats had something to be happy about in Georgie’s 6th CD.

A firm started by former insiders for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) hauled in millions of dollars from the failed campaign of Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, Federal Election Commission records show.

Fools. Money. Some parting required.

Also, this

A precinct captain for Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff’s congressional campaign complained recently that many of his constituents are hard to reach because they still live at home with their parents.

Snort.

Steve Scalise update

Per The Hill this morning, he has been upgraded from Serious to Fair condition.

I didn’t see this coming: Bono gives Scalise a shout-out. Meaning something positive.

“You’ve been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria,” Bono says on-stage in the video. “We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful. We hold them up, as love holds us all up.”

…U2 performed Tuesday night in Hyattsville, Maryland, at FedExField, home of the Washington Redskins. FedExField is located about 19 miles northeast of Alexandria.

But they’re still stuck on a motive for the shooting. ABC’s article is totally silent on it. The Hill’s article touches on it in a way that disguises the truth:

The FBI said Wednesday that the shooter, who died shortly after sustaining injuries in a confrontation with police, worked alone and that the incident had “no nexus to terrorism.”

The agency also confirmed Hodgkinson had a paper list containing six lawmakers’ names, although they said they would not classify it as a “hit list.”

So, the FBI is politically correct? Yikes! Reminder:

  • The “six names” were a hit list.
  • They were all GOP – and specifically, the (rare) anti-Establishment, pro-liberty type of GOP known as the House Freedom Caucus.
  • The failed murderer, James T. Hodgkinson, was a “Bernie bro” who wanted to kill them for political reasons and terrorize conservatives.

From the comments: James reminds us that Bono has kinda-sorta been getting sensible for awhile. Nice to see!

Heh

A woman beat a white male who was funded by wealthy interests; the feminists can put away their pink hats, now.

The left is now claiming the reason they spent $30-40 Million dollars and lost in purple district that just barely went Trump is because their candidate was too conservative. And so, their thinkers are telling them they need to move even harder to the left. Reparations for Transgender Vegans! Free airline tickets for anyone wanting to immigrate to the USA! 112% tax rates on the rich! State-run health care!

Genius (I am using that word ironically) Lesbian Sally Kohn agrees.

Best thing that could come out of the #GA06 results is for Democratic Party to finally give up its self-destructive obsession with centrism

In another words, run an Elizabeth Warren/Kamala Harris clone for every senate seat and a Maxine Waters clone for every House seat. In their estimation, Middle America is hungering for more socialist elitists from the bluest parts of the east and west coast to tell us what to do.

Also, keep calling red state voters “toxic, vindictive bigots.”

Update and Bump: Democrat who spent more money than anyone in history on a House seat (mostly outsider money) laments that there is too much money in politics.

The role of money in politics is a major problem and particularly the role of unchecked anonymous money. There have been super PACs in Washington who have been putting up tens of millions of dollars of attack ads in air for months now.

He claims it was his opponent who used PAC money, but his donations included $820,000 from Planned Parenthood; $820,000 from the left-wing “House Majority PAC;” $256,000 from Moveon.org; $88,000 from NARAL (pro-abortion PAC); and dozens of other left-wing groups who wanted to make PDT feel sad.

Also, Pajama Boy vastly outspent his opponent (and he got tons of free media on his behalf) and still lost.

UpdateDemocrats blame “hacking” for the loss? Seriously?

Update:  The horrid yentas on The View didn’t take their loss well.

German Police raided 36 homes to punish people for saying things the state disapproves of in social media.

In a coordinated campaign across 14 states, the German police on Tuesday raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful postings over social media, including threats, coercion and incitement to racism.

Most of the raids concerned politically motivated right-wing incitement, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office, whose officers conducted home searches and interrogations. But the raids also targeted two people accused of left-wing extremist content, as well as one person accused of making threats or harassment based on someone’s sexual orientation.

“The still high incidence of punishable hate posting shows a need for police action,” Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office, said in a statement.

The CNN crew watches the results of the special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district; where a defeat of a Republican by a Democrat with limitless funding in a purplish congressional district was supposed to signal the end of Donald Trump or something.

Republicans picked up a win in South Carolina’s 5th CD as well. Both of them were won by Republican establishment types who will slavishly do the bidding of the financiers and donor class. So, forgive me for not getting too excited.

Anyway, in Donald Trump’s Handmaid’s Tale America, Republicans have just sent another woman to congress. Sorry, narrative.

It is kind of fun that wealthy Democrats blew something north of $30 million to lose this election. Probably closer to or greater than $40 million. 95% of Democrat Job “Pajama Boy” Ossoff’s funding came from outta state; mostly New York and California.

I am just pondering the irony now that people in the throes of faux outrage about “Russian meddling” in American elections… spent millions of dollars and sent volunteers down to meddle in an election in a district none of them live in. Is that irony? Or is it just hypocrisy?

California Senator Endorses Antifa Tactics

Posted by V the K at 9:58 pm - June 20, 2017.
Filed under: Free Speech

According to California Senator Dianne Feinstein, if Antifa demands that a college not allow a conservative speaker to speak, the college should not allow the speaker to speak. Because public safety.

After reading aloud the First Amendment in her opening remarks, Sen. Feinstein said, “The fact of the matter is that there are certain occasions on which individuals assemble not to act peaceably, but to act as destructively as they possibly can.” She went on to say, “When you have a set group of people that come to create a disturbance, some of them even wearing masks or wearing certain clothing, what do you do?” Feinstein said police aren’t always equipped to handle this situation making it “a horse of another color.” She concluded, “I do believe that the university has a right to protect its students from demonstrations once they become acts of violence.”

In other words, give Antifa what they want; censorship power over speech.

And just kind of hope that after successfully using violence to achieve one goal, they will never use it again to achieve any other goals.

How fake is CNN? At least this fake (part 2)

Just to follow up on part 1 about CNN openly staging a fake protest that they’d wanted, here’s a nifty list.

YouTube Preview Image

Like all such lists, it suffers from being anecdotal and agenda-driven. And (in this case) badly mis-titled. Some (hi rusty 😉 ) won’t like it that the list comes from Cernovich.

But I’m interested in what’s in it. I have seen most of these instances myself, at one time or another. I think it’s silly to trust CNN. If people ask me why, here are some of the examples I’d point to.

  • The time CNN warned that it’s somehow illegal for ordinary citizens to look at the leaked DNC and Podesta emails. (It isn’t.)
  • The time they had a camera man pose as a random guy on the street and broadcast his pro-Hillary rant.
  • The time CNN lied that Loretta Lynch had “recused herself” from any decisions on the Clinton e-mail investigation. (She didn’t. She should have.)
  • The time(s) CNN spread the fake “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” meme. (Shot of an entire CNN panel doing it.)
  • The time CNN, broadcasting from a studio with blue screen and fake wind, pretended it was on-location in the Gulf War.
  • The time CNN claimed that Muslim terrorist bombings in Europe are done by “false flag” right-wingers.
  • The time Jake Tapper told a Navy Seal he was interviewing, that his all buddies had died for nothing.
  • The time CNN let a guest claim that “rogue cops shoot black people for sport”.
  • The time a CNN anchor expressed joy at Sarah Palin’s children being assaulted.
  • The times that CNN edited #BlackLivesMatter activists, who were calling for rage and violence, to make it appear as if they were somehow peaceful.
  • The time a CNN anchor praised a cop-killer as “brave and courageous”.
  • The time CNN had 2 reporters in the same parking lot in Phoenix and faked it, split-screen, to pretend they were in different locations.
  • The time they did a voter focus group and openly stated the precise words that they wanted a certain voter to say next.
  • The many times CNN cut a guest’s satellite feed if they strayed too far from CNN’s preferred narrative.
    • The guy they cut for mentioning Jesus.
    • The time they cut Bernie Sanders after he jokingly referred to CNN as Fake News.
    • The time they cut a guest for mentioning Wikileaks.
    • The time they cut a reporter who started talking about Hillary’s negatives or “vulnerabilities”.
  • The way that, when CNN cuts a guest who strayed too far from their preferred narrative, they pretend it’s somehow accidental.

The list is incomplete of course. It didn’t even get around to some stuff like:

And more that I could probably find, if I searched GP archives.

How racist is CNN? Possibly this racist

Here’s a story that I’m late in mentioning; in part because I never saw it on CNN. 175 people are involved in a class-action lawsuit against CNN for racial discrimination.

(I apologize, if you have problems with the Daily Wire link. On my computer, it’s OK with an ad blocker. But without an ad blocker, DW eats all the computer’s resources, slowing things to a crawl. The story was also at Newsbusters and Breitbart.)

DW says this story gets even less coverage than the 13 people suing Fox News for racial discrimination.

“The lawsuit against CNN, meanwhile, claims the company’s Atlanta headquarters is rife with racism,” The New York Post wrote on April 27.

Minority employees had to endure bigoted remarks such as “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?,” according to a complaint by former workers Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr. filed in Atlanta federal court.

Colbert Jr. also claims he was paid thousands less than white colleagues as a manager at the affiliated Turner Broadcasting System.

Henley, a former CNN executive assistant, says she was fired in 2014 for complaining that black employees were being paid less than white counterparts.

Writes The Hollywood Reporter: Unlike the lawsuit against Fox News, the one against CNN and sister companies is much broader, claiming among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a “glass ceiling.”…

According to The New York Post, The New York Times is also being sued for racial discrimination:

The Times plaintiffs claim in a suit filed last year by New York lawyer Douglas Wigdor that “the Gray Lady” prefers to hire white employees to help target a white audience.

“Unbeknownst to the world at large, not only does the Times have an ideal customer (young, white, wealthy), but also an ideal staffer (young, white, unencumbered with a family) to draw that purported ideal customer,” a complaint states.

Staffers from the staid broadsheet charge that Times CEO Mark Thompson, hired in 2012, created an “environment rife with discrimination based on age, race and gender.”

These stories are from April and May. If you know anything more recent, please update us in the comments.

Professional LGBT Activists Outraged About Christian Day Event

Posted by V the K at 8:30 am - June 20, 2017.
Filed under: Free Speech,Liberal Intolerance

The Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) are angry that the St. Louis Cardinals are holding a ‘Christian Day,’ which the team has done for 30 years. They are also angry that the Cardinals are allowing former player Lance Berkman to be the spokesman for Christian Day. Berkman had previously said mean, intolerant  things (in their opinion) about the transgendereds. Like this:

The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls. Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.

Which is, of course, a ‘dog whistle’ for ‘Kill all the gays and transgendereds!” I guess, or something, according to the Bullying Totalitarians. (Any opinions not precisely in line with the social justice left are “Hate Speech.”) They want the event canceled, Berkman to be sent to tolerance camp, the team colors changed to pink and teal, and massive extortion payments to be made to LGBT organizations. So far, the Cardinals aren’t backing down.

Why do I suspect that a ‘Muslim Day’ would not be a problem?

The First Draft of a Coup d’Etat

Posted by V the K at 8:11 am - June 20, 2017.
Filed under: Violence on the Left

It is a more than a little bit far-fetched, but a writer at the American Spectator envisions a scenario where the attempted mass-murder of Republicans by a Democrat activist last week could have set the stage for a coup d’état. The short version is, had all the Republicans who were supposed to have been at the baseball field been there, and had he killed all of them, he could have wiped out the Republican majority in the House and Senate; potentially putting Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in charge. They would, of course, promptly impeach President Trump.

Like I said, it’s a far-fetched scenario, but it isn’t implausible that the thought of killing Republicans to help Democrats win back the house and senate was what motivated the Democrat Activist shooter. The would-be mass murderer was encouraged by the left’s violent rhetoric, but he acted alone and was a terrible shot. (Probably believed all the Democrat propaganda that “assault weapons” kill anyone they are fired at.) However, a larger force of Democrat activists working together might have been able to kill enough Republicans to tip the balance in Congress. I remember, after the attack, one Progressive Leftist lamenting that violent resistance needed to be better organized.

What do you think “By Any Means Necessary” means, anyway? Bake Sales? According to one Democrat strategist, #HuntRepublicans. Mr. Hodgkinson was just a little ahead of the curve.

On a related note, a Democratic Socialist group at the University of Georgia has called for Republicans to be beheaded Kathy-Griffin style.  They are claiming it was an artistic joke that was too subtle for conservatives to get.

RIP Otto Warmbier

22 year old Otto Warmbier died today 17 months after being tortured and imprisoned by the communist regime of North Korea. We can criticize his foolishness for going to North Korea in the first place, but what he suffered he clearly did not deserve. Nor did he deserve to be attacked by the left, who claimed to the contrary that he got what deserved for his “white privilege.” (Part of a disturbing trend on the progressive left toward the dehumanization of other people based on their perceived “privilege.”)

Update: HuffPo has apparently been stealth-editing their original story.

Torturing and murdering people is what socialist and communist regimes do. It was also a favorite pastime of Communist mass-murder Che Guevara, whose visage can be seen on T-shirts and banners wherever “Democratic Socialists” gather to discuss how they would like to run America, and what to do with people who, in their view, do not deserve their “privilege.”

Some Good News on the Free Speech Front

By an 8-0 vote, the Supreme Court of the United States has upheld the right of band made up of Asian-American members to call themselves ‘The Slants.’ The band applied to trademark their name and were denied by the Patent and Trademark Office under 15 U.S.C. Section 1502(a) which prohibits the registration of a trademark that may “disparage . . . or bring . . . into contemp[t] or disrepute” any “persons, living or dead.” All eight justices (Justice Gorsuch joined the court after the case was argued) held this anti-disparagement provision flatly unconstitutional.

[N]o matter how the point is phrased, [the] unmistakable thrust [of the government’s argument] is this: The Government has an interest in preventing speech expressing ideas that offend. And, as we have explained, that idea strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”

This is the precise opposite of what social justice wankers are being taught at Berkeley, Yale, and other leftist Asylums of Higher Learning.

Kafir drives van into a group of Mohammedans in front of a mosque, and suddenly, the left has absolutely no doubts about his motives.  Nor are they planning any marches or protest in solidarity with the ethnic group of whom the assailant was a member.

The mess in Syria

U.S. Shoots Down Syrian Aircraft for First Time.

The U.S. military on Sunday shot down a Syrian Air Force fighter jet that bombed local forces aligned with the Americans in the fight against Islamic State militants…

According to a statement from the Pentagon, pro-Syrian regime forces attacked the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces-held town of Ja’Din, south of Tabqah in northern Syria, wounding a number of SDF fighters and driving the SDF from the town.

Coalition aircraft conducted a show of force and stopped the initial pro-regime advance toward the town, the Pentagon said…

A few hours later, the Syrian SU-22 dropped bombs near SDF fighters and, “in collective self-defense of coalition-partnered forces,” was immediately shot down by a U.S. F/A-18E Super Hornet, the Pentagon said.

“The coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” the Pentagon said, using an abbreviation for the Islamic State group. “The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them…”

And that’s what doesn’t make sense. ISIS and the so-called “moderate, democratic” opposition to the Syrian government are much the same people. There is a flow of people, weapons and training between them.

Just as no one can “have their cake and eat it, too”, the U.S. must choose between defeating Syria’s Assad regime and defeating ISIS. To attempt both, is to stick with a losing position.

UPDATE: Krauthammer tries to explain it. According to him:

  • ISIS is doomed – will be gone within 6-12 months.
  • Russia, Iran and Syria are working to “inherit” northern Iraq for Iran (the new Persian Empire), and likewise to have all of Syria in the hands of Assad-Russia-Iran-Shiites.
  • Meanwhile, the U.S. is working to defeat all that; especially to have a de facto division of Syria along ethnic lines, in which the western half of Syria will be Sunni-dominated and Saudi-friendly. (And northern Iraq, ??? Not sure.)

It still sounds hokey to me, with too much danger of an accidental war with Russia. But I wanted to acknowledge that the side favoring U.S. involvement in Syria might have a strategy in mind.

We’ve been hearing a long time that energy pipelines (especially liquid natural gas) might be involved in all this. Pipelines to Europe, that need to run through Syria. The Russia-Iran version would tend to make Europe more dependent on them, while the U.S.-Saudi version would do the reverse (or preserve Europe’s dependence on the U.S. and Saudi Arabia).

The mess in the UK

Posted by Jeff (ILoveCapitalism) at 11:24 am - June 19, 2017.
Filed under: Politics abroad,Religion Of Peace,War On Terror

As you’ve probably heard, a UK man assaulted pedestrians with a vehicle last night.

What’s new and different is that, instead of the usual Muslim trying to kill infidels, he was an infidel trying to kill Muslims. Needless to say, his murderous actions were wrong and I condemn them.

What amazes me is that this sort of thing hasn’t happened sooner. European and UK authorities have chronically failed to protect their citizens from Islamic terrorists, prompting citizens to take matters into their own hands. It’s amazing that it took this long for one of their citizens to do so.

As an aside, I’m slightly puzzled by whether this attack should be called “terrorist”. In deciding what to call combatants, I have always used the following matrix:

  • Uniformed soldiers attacking uniformed soldiers: Honorable combatants.
  • Uniformed soldiers attacking civilians: War criminals.
  • Civilians attacking uniformed soldiers: Irregular / guerilla forces.
  • Civilians attacking civilians: Terrorists.

The underlying premise is that a war is going on. Islamic terrorists are called terrorists, in part because they are engaged in a war (against the infidels and/or to establish the supremacy of Islam). Or, as they call it, “jihad”.

If we call this UK guy a terrorist, we implicitly acknowledge that the UK (among others) is in a war with Islam and this particular combatant is on “our” side, however wrongly he goes about it. Do we not? Rather than do that, I’m inclined to just call this UK guy a lunatic mass murderer.

Feel free to let me know your thoughts. Again, due to the failure of UK and European authorities to protect their citizens from Islamic terrorists, a case could be made that the guy is a combatant in an ongoing war with Islam – albeit a degenerate combatant; a civilian attacking civilians – thus a terrorist.

So that’s what I’m stuck on…whether to call him a terrorist or a mass murderer?
