Anti-Gun MoveOn.org Supports a Shooter

The following are excerpts from a MoveOn.org email I recently received. Yes, I receive MoveOn email alerts. It’s handy to get the pulse of the radical left.

Dear MoveOn member,

My name is Cyntoia Brown-Long. You may have heard my name on TV, social media, or if you’re one of the over 636,000 MoveOn members who signed a petition calling for my release from prison. But I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you my story myself and to say thank you.

I am a survivor of child sex trafficking. In 2004, at age 16, I was sentenced to a lifetime in prison for shooting one of my abusers in self-defense.

According to Wikipedia, “Brown said that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty and sentenced to 51 years to life. After renewed interest in her case in 2017, Governor Bill Haslam of Tennessee commuted her original sentence to 15 years.”

She was released from prison in August, 2019. read more

New Whistleblower Standard – Well That’s What I Heard!

Channeling my best Andy Rooney – Have you ever noticed that everything the democrats accuse the Republicans of is something they have already done or plan on doing?

It’s called projection and it’s quite common. As they accuse Donald Trump of strong-arming the Ukrainian president, we find out that Trump didn’t but Joe Biden did. The democrats are a collection of liars and cheaters, so they project their bad behavior on others.

Because they do it, they figure everyone must.

We’ve all done something similar from time to time – project our values or assumptions onto someone, something, or some circumstance.

In sales there is a maxim to never allow your values to cloud a transaction. You’re trying to sell something to someone and you hesitate to divulge the price because you assume that he or she will say it’s just too costly. You’ve “projected” your value system onto the other party. But just because you think something is too expensive doesn’t mean your customer will. Maybe they are accustomed to paying twice as much. How do you know?

And that, for good or ill, is projection. read more

Democrats Happily Grilling Meat and Polluting Mother Earth

As if we need more proof that Democrats are a bunch of phonies. They all fly around in private jets, drive in caravans of huge SUVs and now this – tell us that eating meat is bad, grilling is bad. Never allow them to lecture us on the evils of fossil fuels and carbon pollution. They’re all just a bunch of hypocrites.

Dems grill more than 10,000 steaks despite lecturing Americans about climate change, meat consumption

So Labor Day is Not a Full-Blown Communist Holiday

From: National Review

Red Monday

There isn’t much good to say about Labor Day, except maybe that it could be worse — it could be on May 1, which would make it a full-on Communist holiday instead of a merely crypto-Communist one. For that we can thank Grover Cleveland, the last pretty-good Democrat (seriously: gold standard, anti-tariff, vetoed twice as many bills as all of his predecessors combined — Rand Paul is a fan), who pushed for the creation of a labor festival in September as cultural competition to the international workers’ celebration in May, sort of the reverse of the strategy of the early Church fathers’ choosing the dates of heathen festivals for the new Christian holidays.

So, from the two out of three working-age Americans who are gainfully employed, a round of applause for President Cleveland. But crypto-Communist holidays are not so great, either.

Labor Day, like Obamacare and much else that is distasteful about American public life today, is a product of American liberals’ desire to be Canadians. The ’Nucks started celebrating labor on the first Monday in September in the 1880s; this holiday grew out of a parade celebrating a typographical workers’ strike in 1872. Soon, U.S. labor bosses, especially the Marxist Central Labor Union, wanted a holiday of their own. read more

If America is Racist – So are the Democrats

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday, on his radio program, Rush Limbaugh was talking about how many modern progressive leftists have given up trying to “fix” our country. Now, they claim, it must be torn down and rebuilt in the image that the left envisions – a socialist utopia, where one size really does fit all, because everyone is the same … or else.

Evidently, according to an ever-increasing number of leftists, there’s just no saving and no redeeming the United States.

Why exactly does this new breed of leftists feel this way about their own country?

Well, it goes back to the days of slavery. Then after emancipation – Jim Crow, segregation, racism and the Klan.

This they claim is America’s permanent legacy, and one that apparently cannot be erased or otherwise expunged. The only answer is to tear it down and start over.

But this poses a couple of problems for the left – namely, reparations and the democrat party. read more

Leftist News Outlets Refuse to Admit the Truth About Dayton Shooter

Dayton Shooter – Radical Leftist

As NewsBusters research analyst Bill D’Agostino exposed Tuesday afternoon, the liberal broadcast networks were doing their best to avoid telling their viewers that the gunman behind the Dayton mass shooting was an admitted ‘leftist.’ But hours later, ABC’s World News Tonight was the first flagship network news program to break that trend when they footnoted that fact.

Meanwhile, the flagship CBS and NBC newscasts were still avoiding it like the plague. read more

Justice is Not Blind – It Sees Only What It Wants to See

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

We’ve all heard the saying that “Justice is Blind.” Thus the statue of Justitia, or lady Justice, blindfolded and holding the scale of equal justice under the law.

As nice a sentiment and goal that is, it is not reality. Rather it said that there are two systems of justice. One for the haves and one for the have-nots.

But even that’s not accurate, at least not anymore. Now we three systems, or tiers of justice. One for the have-nots, one for the haves and one reserved only for a politically well connected inner circle.

The have nots are the regular folks, like you and me. If we ever find ourselves on the wrong side of the law, regardless of the circumstance, we can expect zero perks and zero favors done on our behalf. We can expect the full measure of justice handed down as punishment for our transgressions, owing only to the compassion and mercy of a jury and/or judge.

Our only hope is that the judge and/or jury may find some sympathy for and pity on us, thus lessening our punishment slightly.

The haves are the next up in our three-tiered justice system. read more

WND Exclusive – A New Proposal on Reparations the Left Won’t Like

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues to get verbally beaten by Democrats over his refusal to deal with reparations to the descendants of slaves in America.

“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible, is a good idea,” McConnell said.

But naturally, this is not good enough for the Dems. They still insist that it’s only fair that America pay for its “original sin.” read more

Being Black and Christian doesn’t Fit In with National Women’s Soccer Team

When the choice is between one of best female soccer players in America and wearing a gay pride jersey, the National Women’s Soccer team chose the jersey. And did I mention that the player is black? Interestingly, there were no cries of racism from anyone on the woke left.

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington TimesFox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.” read more
