If any of the candidates who are most likely to be elected get elected,you’re screwed. However, there are also some candidates who would keep you from being screwed if they got elected. But they aren’t going to get elected, so you’re screwed.

By the former, he means Jeb, Hillary, Trump, Rube, Sanders, and Fiorina.

By the latter, he means Rand Paul.

Atheists for Bernie

Atheists are willing to give socialism another shot despite its history of failure. That takes a lot of blind faith.

Sen. Bernie Sanders is the overwhelming favorite of American humanists in the 2016 presidential race, according to results of a poll released Tuesday by the Center for Freethought Equality. The CFE is a lobbying organization associated with the American Humanist Association. The AHA describes humanists as individuals who do not have theistic or other supernatural beliefs, and believe the greater good of humanity can be achieved through ethical behavior.

According to the online poll conducted by SurveyMonkey, Sanders has the backing of 73 percent of humanists surveyed. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is second with 21 percent. Donald Trump is the most-popular Republican among humanists, but he has the backing only about two percent.

Was having a discussion the other day about the absolute worst possible guest you could have at a dinner party. We decided it would be a gluten-intolerant vegan atheist with photos of her grandchildren.

Ted Cruz Went There

Finally, a Republican says what I have been saying since the first Bush attempt at Amnesty in 2006.

“I understand that when the mainstream media covers immigration, it doesn’t often see it as an economic issue, but, I can tell you for millions — of Americans at home watching this, it is a very personal economic issue. And, I will say the politics of it will be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the Rio Grande. Or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press.” – Ted Cruz, 11/10/2015

Exactly thus. And apparently, it went over well the audience.

He didn’t take it as far as he could have; the desire of Big Donor interests to replace American workers with cheap foreign labor is bad for America, but it shows that, on some level, Cruz gets it in a way that Jeb and Marco “American workers just can’t cut it” Rubio, and even Donald Trump, don’t.  (Yes, I am aware that Ted Cruz pushed for an expansion of the Cheap Foreign Labor {H-1} program; he owes us a big mea culpa on that).

Connecting their policies to the effect of their policies on people is something Republicans suck at. Democrats have it easy, they just promise to give people free stuff, which is easy to understand. Republicans have a much harder job of connecting policy to result.

But, it is a start.

Update: Jeb Bush, on the other hand, rather than speaking to the real economic concerns of Americans, blathers on about how deporting illegal immigrants is just mean. Maybe because no one in the Bush family is in danger of losing a job or a college slot to someone occupying the country illegally.

Black Professor: “Ben Carson Is Just a Token”

Short version: “Ben Carson (and Senator Tim Scott) are Uncle Toms. Black politicians are only legitimate when they are progressive leftists. Also, Republicans are racists.”


Trump Calls Out Disney and Rubio for Replacing Americans with Cheap Foreign Labor via the H1-B Program

In an interview with his friends at Breitbart, Donald Trump lays out why the Republican Party and the Chamber of Commerce are being dishonest about their agenda to import cheap foreign labor to take American jobs.

 BNN: Hundreds of workers at Disney were forced to train their foreign replacements. But while Florida Senator Nelson rallied to their cause, Senator Rubio did not. While Nelson has called for an investigation, Rubio has not. While Nelson has called to reduce H-1Bs, Rubio has demanded more. Senator Rubio has been the top promoter in Congress for expanding the H-1B program even though millions American tech workers are out of jobs. Rubio’s new bill triples H-1Bs and has zero protections for American workers. Advocates for tech workers said Rubio’s bill would “destroy” the U.S. tech workforce. Rubio’s bill is even endorsed by the CEO of Disney. What do you think of Rubio’s bill?

DT: It’s a disaster. It would allow any company in America to replace any worker with cheaper foreign labor. It legalizes job theft. It gives companies the legal right to pass over Americans, displace Americans, or directly replace Americans for good-paying middle class jobs. More than 80 percent of these H-1Bs are paid less than the average wage.

Even though I am not a Trump-supporter, it’s his willingness to call out the Party and connect with the concerns of the American Middle Class that makes me glad he is in this race

So, About that GOP Debate Last Night

Posted by V the K at 8:34 am - October 29, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election



How bad were the moderators at the GOP CNBC debate? So bad that even left-wingers were calling the CNBC panel a train-wreck.

 Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo called out “perhaps the most comically poor debate prep we’ve ever seen in a national debate. Are these folks even journalists?” Adam Nagourney of the New York Times asked mid-debate: “Would it be hard to do a panel swap-out during the break? Is Jake Tapper or Chris Wallace in the wings?” Think Progress, which almost functions as Hillary’s personal blog, admitted the debate “was kind of a train wreck.”

I didn’t watch. (Went for a massage, then for a nice moonlight walk followed by a Qdoba taco salad. I really like living here better than the DC area. The other day, we went for lunch at a Thai place and I discovered I had left my wallet at the office. The proprietor, “Don’t worry about it. Eat your lunch. Pay me later.”) 

I didn’t watch because I really don’t find political debates informative or worthwhile. The Democrat “debates” are more like infomercials. (“Tell us more about how your plan for totally free college will boost the economy!”) The Republican ones are like 60 Minutes interviewing the corrupt CEO of a Health Insurance Company that was caught selling fake insurance policies to old people through a telemarketing scam while simultaneously running a child prostitution ring and puppy abattoir.

The “moderator,”  Democrat Media Operative John Harwood, at one point was caught in an outright lie about Marco Rubio’s tax plan.

The Tax Foundation, which was alluded to earlier, scored your tax plan and concluded that you give nearly twice as much of a gain in after-tax income to the top one-percent as to people in the middle of the income scale. Since you’re a champion of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, don’t you have that backward?

This assertion was an outright falsehood. A reputable news organization would fire him. Fortunately, he works for NBC.

From what I am told, Ted Cruz won the night.


Voting Made Easy!

So apparently Ben Carson believes (with some important caveats) in creationism
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton believes that our policy in Libya represents “smart power at its best.

Which of these fanciful myths do you suppose, if espoused by a future president and reflected in his or her policies is most likely to do grave damage to the United States and its interests?

I realize dinosaurs are important to some people, and for those who don’t mind a government who brazenly lies to cover up its failures that led to murdered diplomats on foreign soil denied their (600!) pleas for support, I suppose that vote is pretty easy.

Here’s What REALLY Matters About Hillary’s Emails:

So today’s the big day.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be before Rep. Trey Gowdy’s Select Committee on Benghazi, a forum through which she’ll be allowed once again to grandstand in support of her bid for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. Pundits and talking heads are spinning themselves to distraction, while what perplexes me about the entire situation remains: I can’t understand why her popularity has ebbed and flowed as new ‘revelations’ as to the contents of her personal email server have come to light.

As a member of the military, and the possessor of a high-level security clearance, I am of course aghast at the cavalier attitude she and her underlings at State demonstrated with regard to classified information and its handling. Sure, yes, she and those charged with advising her on such matters should be held responsible and (not that I was on the verge of endorsing her anyway) this carelessness and risk should certainly demonstrate her lack of qualification for president. Bla bla, yadda yadda.


All that aside, the most damning part of her ‘secret’ ‘home-brewed’ server is that it exists in the first place!

How is it possible that the contempt shown for the American public’s right to know, even if only for the sake of posterity, the goings-on at State not returned in kind by a Nation founded on the principles of representative government answerable to The People?

I get it; it’s an election year. There’s plenty of gamesmanship, posturing and feigned outrage.

But seriously: No less a mouthpiece for Hillary Clinton than longtime confidant and hit-man James Carville himself has acknowledged brazenly and blatantly that her purpose for having a private server in the first place was, “I suspect she didn’t want Louis Gohmert rifling through her e-mails, which seems to me to be a kind of reasonable position for someone to take.” In Mr. Carville’s opinion, does that reasonableness stem from the fact that Gohmert sits on the House Judiciary Committee, which is responsible, among other things, for handling impeachment proceedings against federal officials? More generally speaking, it surely would seem “reasonable” if your intention was to, as a public official, avoid any sort of accountability to the people of America or their representatives in Congress (whose job is oversight of you and your organization) by way of completely controlling and keeping from exposure the entire catalog of your communications in your official role. Those communications belong to us, not her.

How is the party ostensibly ‘of the little-guy’ about to coronate a politician so contemptuous of Americans to be their nominee for president? How on earth does it even tolerate her in its ranks at all?

Forget (if you can) the national security risks and exposure her choice represents. Forget the “drip, drip, drip” of supposedly damaging information being squeezed out of a recalcitrant Kerry State Department. Forget inevitable-for-anbody-else-besides-the-well-connected indictments and FBI criminal investigations. Forget all that.

If we aren’t a Nation wherein someone who shows this brash level of (sorry to keep using this word, but it’s really the only one I can think of) contempt for Americans’ right to self-governance (which requires openness of government, which in turn requires Freedom Of Information, if that rings a bell) isn’t drummed out of our national dialog, but rather is actually the nominee for president of one of our major political parties, then perhaps we’re around the bend already.

In fairness, some on the Left really do seem to have conviction about responsible and representative government. Here is an excellent Q&A that boils down the importance of this issue far beyond the bombast of presidential politics and cuts to the core of the issue at hand. Jason Leopold:

The most important aspect of her emails that anyone should be paying attention to is the fact that we don’t have answers as to why she was using a private email account, and avoiding the Federal Records Act—which is a law—and why the State Department failed to respond to legitimate requests from journalists under the Freedom of Information Act for her emails years before this scandal was ever revealed.

If the fact that the person who holds the office of the #1 individual within the administration after the VP to succeed the president having a ‘home-brewed’ server for (obviously) the purpose of avoiding accountability isn’t news enough in and of itself, what sort of representative nation are we?

Clinton Shill Thinks You’re an Idiot (file under: What Else Is New?)

See Elijah Cummings on Face the Nation today? Ha ha.. either he’s a complete moron, or he’s hoping we all are:

DICKERSON: The Republicans would say — you mentioned the e-mails had nothing to do with Benghazi, but they would say you can’t get to the information about Benghazi unless you know what the key person…

(CROSSTALK) [...was writing in her emails, which, naturally she's stonewalled against the Congress's right to see in its oversight capacity.]*

CUMMINGS: Well, keep in mind, keep in mind that Hillary Clinton has turned in tens of thousands of pages of e-mails, more than any other secretary in the history of our country, secretary of state in the history of country.

And keep in mind Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice have not turned in one page. So, we have a microscope over her entire tenure as secretary of state. It’s going to be interesting.

DICKERSON: It is indeed. Mr. Cummings, thank you so much for being with us.

The “microscope” line is particularly rich considering the emails in question (in fact, all emails the Congress and the public has ever been able to see from the former leader of one of our government’s most influential and impactful departments) are only known of and available after they’d been pried from her cold, dead server thanks to FOIA requests and, ahem, an FBI investigation. But anyway…

Point is though, why stop shy of criticizing Powell and Rice (mentions of either of whom, by the way, is a non sequitur)? Come to think of it, Mr. Cummings, that Lawrence Eagleburger musta had something pretty shady to hide considering we’ve never seen even one of his emails. Yea, and that Thomas Jefferson… probably got a lot of stuff stashed away on that server too.

Sheesh… the ends Hillary’s shills won’t go to in order to protect her.

Nick (ColoradoPatriot, from HQ)

*Who the hell knows if John Dickerson was trying to ask that… But if there existed actual reporters today and fewer shills for Hillary Clinton, that’d be a pretty logical thing to ask and we’d have heard it and had it answered a long time ago.

Another Democrat with a Thing for Kiddie Porn

Posted by V the K at 4:02 pm - October 10, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

A state chairman of Martin “Rain Tax” O’Malley’s presidential campaign has been charged with possession of kiddie porn.

A former assistant principal, who was the state chairman for presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, and who most recently served as the vice-president of a Henrico-based financial firm, was arrested Thursday for possession of child pornography.

Michael C. Teegarden, 51, of Mechanicsville, was charged on two counts of child pornography after deputies executed a search warrant at his home in the 10000 block of Morning Dew Lane.

His penchant for pictures of little kids being raped puts him in the illustrious company of Virginia ACLU President Charles Rust-Tierney, Democrat Senate Aide Jeffrey P. Rosato, and San Francisco Gay Left icon Larry Brinkin.

Ben Carson: This Week’s Object of Leftist Two-Minutes Hate

This week, a lot of very spoiled, very privileged, very stupid people on the left aimed their hate at a brilliant African-American neurosurgeon; a man who grew up on the rough streets of Detroit to become not just the country’s foremost pediatric brain surgeon but a leading contender for the 2016 Republican nomination.

The Democrats are pretty upset that this “uppity boy” doesn’t know his place. But what really riled them up were a couple of positions he has taken of late.

1. Mohammedan Shariah is not compatible with the American Constitution.

2. Self-Defense is a Human Right.

Which led to this nuanced perspective from Gayman Quarterly.

Fuck Ben Carson

You know, the only thing more alarming than Donald Trump leading the Republican presidential field is the fact that Ben Carson is the guy right behind him. While establishment puds like Jeb! Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) can’t decide if they want to beat Trump or emulate him, the Good Doctor made it clear this week that he is not only willing to replicate Trump’s signature brand of hot-garbage-spewing, but he’ll say even DUMBER shit.

Ben Carson’s success makes it harder to attack Republicans as racists; but it sure has brought out the racism on the left.

The Cost of Bernie Sander’s Socialist Programs

Posted by V the K at 1:21 pm - September 15, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

Social Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders has engaged the insatiable greed of the Democrat base for ‘Free Stuff from the Government’ including ‘free’ college, ‘free’ health care, and a vast expansion of welfare.

‘How much would all of this cost to implement?’ might you ask if you’re a racist homophobic warmongering theocrat who supports rape-culture. Oh, not so much, only about double the current national debt.

In all, he backs at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade, according to a tally by The Wall Street Journal, a sum that alarms conservatives and gives even many Democrats pause. Mr. Sanders sees the money as going to essential government services at a time of increasing strain on the middle class.


Donald Trump Threw a Wrench in the GOP’s Plan to Neutralize the Illegal Immigration Issue and Nominate Jeb

Posted by V the K at 8:41 am - September 15, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

I have a theory on Trump/the GOP-E. I think the GOP candidates had a tacit agreement that they would neutralize the Illegal Immigration issue by all taking the same position on it. “Of course we can’t build a wall, and we can’t tear families apart. We will secure the border, someday (pinky swear), but we have to give all the illegals we have now (and the ones who will come in while we are working on securing that pesky border) some kind of legal status.”

But then Trump comes in and says, “Screw that, deport ‘em and build a wall!”

It really screwed up the GOP’s plan to neutralize the issue.

Trump is a pretty smart guy and he saw that the rift between Mitch McConnell’s business interests and the base was a “y-u-u-u-u-u-g-e” opportunity, and he took it.

I am not a Trump supporter, but it’s become hard not to be impressed with the guy.

Better GOP Debate Questions

These questions are not going to be asked at the GOP debate. They should be. For example, this question is for Jeb Bush:

You support amnesty and Common Core, you won’t undo the Iran sellout of Israel on your first day in office and – as we always expected – you’ve come out in support of more gun control. Since you have adopted Hillary’s platform, why are you running as a Republican?

Why are you so damn special that despite there being 320 million other Americans, we can’t do any better than a third Bush?
