Ruminations of the Day – Kamala Harris and Antifa

Sometimes, there’s just too much happening all at once, so it makes it difficult to decide on a topic. So instead, how about two?

One:

Here we go again with the birther thing. Really?! And it’s not even a birther question. People are just calling it that.

It worked so well last time, that someone said to themselves – self, I know we looked like complete idiots before with the whole Barack Obama birth certificate. Because of our idiocy, a new word was even coined: birther.

This time the sights have been set on Kamala Harris. No, unlike Obama, no one is claiming Harris was born elsewhere and thus not an American citizen. Websites and supposed journalists are just using the “birther” moniker because it’s more sensational.

Some black guy, Ali Alexander, tweeted that he’s tired of Kamala Harris trying to “rob American blacks of our history.” read more

Will the Next Blasey Ford – Come on Down!

A woman has come forward, 20 something years after the fact (except that there are no facts), to claim Donald Trump sexually assaulted her. And as they always do, in a rush to push the narrative that Trump is evil, and of course trust the accuser as unassailable, they snag her for an interview on CNN (of course), only to discover that she is even less believable than Christine Blasey Ford.


from the Daily Wire:

YIKES: CNN Interview With Trump Rape Accuser Goes Off The Rails

On Monday morning, CNN’s “New Day” anchor Alisyn Camerota interviewed Elle magazine advice columnist E. Jean Carroll —and it was a doozy.

Carroll, who claims in her new book that President Donald Trump attempted to sexualy assault her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago, changed her rationale for not pressing charges against Trump and stumbled over answers in a disaster interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Monday.

President Trump has vehemently denied the accusations, claims he doesn’t know Carroll, and has publicly thanked Bergdorf Goodman for “confirming they have no video footage of any such incident.”

In the first part of the interview, Carroll detailed the alleged rape, telling Camerota, “When we walked into the lingerie department there was nobody there, which is strange. It was in the evening, so — and on the counter were three really fancy boxes and a see-through bodysuit. He walked right to the bodysuit and snatched it up and said, ‘Go put this on.’ Now, that struck me as so funny because here I am, a 52 — I am not going to put — my idea was — I said, ‘No, you put it on.’ And he said, ‘No, it looks like it fits you.’ I said, ‘No, it goes with your eyes.’ So I am spinning a comedy scene in my head.”

CNN Chooses Agenda over the Truth … Again

CNN’s 30 second video has sent the left in America into a meltdown. Of course I’m referring to the video of the kindly old Native American man gently tapping on his drum while white oppressors stood mocking him.

Unfortunately for the liars on the left, and the poor saps who believe what they see and hear in the main stream media, this incident is not even remotely close to what really occurred. CNN took a 30 second segment completely out context by lifting it from at least a full hour of video coverage.

Thanks to the research done by Glenn Becks crack staff at the Blaze, allow me explain what actually took place.

The truth is that well before the CNN incident, video caught a group called the Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI) verbally harassing and abusing another group, the Indigenous People’s March, who were in Washington D.C. to protest stolen Indian lands and of course, no borders. We may not agree, but they every right to protest.

The boys, from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, just happened to be there on their annual class field trip, which the school has been doing for the past 10 years. read more

Foreign Policy is about Substance and Deeds – Not Words

Fareed Zakaria said on CNN Sunday that the United States should conduct foreign policy in accordance with its interests and values.

He was of course deriding Donald Trump’s style of foreign policy. And surprise, surprise, Fareed was critical of Trump’s handling of it.

He, like all other leftists, just can’t seem to wrap their collective pin-heads around the Trump way.

Zakaria says that, “America’s foreign policy should not be based on personalities. Donald Trump’s worldview seems utterly rooted in his likes and dislikes of other leaders – from Kim Jong Un to Angela Merkel to MBS [Mohammad bin Salman].”

In other words, from the left’s vacuous vantage point, Trump favors whom he appears to like and vice versa. read more

CNN’s Striking Ignorance of the Federal Judiciary

I was reading an article about Immigration and family separation on CNN’s website the other day. It was yet another tug-at-the-heartstrings piece, sympathetic to illegals while demonizing border security and I.C.E. You know – a kill two birds with one stone type of thing.

The article began by stating: “Six months after US officials separated them at the border, ICE put a 4-year-old girl on a plane to Guatemala this week so she could be reunited with her father.”

According to CNN, the father, who was deported back to Guatemala 6 months ago, lived 8 hours from the airport, but only learned of his daughter’s arrival 30 minutes prior to her touching down. There was no mention of a mother.

The girl would then have to spend another night in a shelter awaiting her father’s arrival. Again, not a single mention of a mother. read more

Does the Left Really Not Know What a Mob is?

Heather Wilhelm at National Review explains:

How to Tell If You Are Part of a Mob

This shouldn’t be that hard to explain.

Not a Mob, according to CNN

During the final, torturous week in which our nation collectively lost its marbles over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, I happened to be out of the country. This was a fantastic decision on my part — one could not feel the surge of unhinged panic in France, where people just kind of sauntered around as usual, smoking cigarettes, and looking vaguely aloof — but I also apparently missed some very exciting news.

One of the most thrilling things I missed, or so I am told, involved an exhaustive national debate over the meaning of mysterious terms in Brett Kavanaugh’s high-school yearbook. “Devil’s Triangle.” “Boof.” It was wild! It was like decoding the prophecies of Nostradamus, or at least the Rosetta Stone! read more

CNN’s Berman Can’t Contain his Naked Partisanship

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Today, there is no longer even a hint of impartiality in the main stream media. And this will tick-off some conservatives, but that includes almost everyone at Fox News.

Now it’s pick-a-side. You’re expected to be all in for Trump, or all out.

However, CNN has taken naked partisanship to new heights. Check that. They’ve descended to new lows. As I never watch MSNBC, I must therefore conclude that CNN is the worst among the leftist networks. For those with a stronger constitution than I, who might tune in to MSNBC, feel free to correct me on the MSNBC/CNN race to the bottom.

I’ve thought for some time, the worst and most partisanly condescending of them at CNN was former morning show co-anchor, turned prime time hack, Chris Cuomo.

Yet after witnessing the exchange had between Cuomo’s morning replacement, John Berman, and Rick Santorum, I think Cuomo has been dethroned. The performance turned in by Berman during that 8 minute (or so) segment, shows that fairness and impartiality is not only dead, but has been shot, stabbed, burned, drawn and quarter and thrown in a shallow grave. read more

MS-13 is Back in the News and It’s All Trump’s Fault

The savage immigrant gang, MS-13, is back in the news. I guess they are always in the news, as these animals (h/t: president Trump) never take a break. Let’s just say they’re back in the national news. CNN’s Sunday website homepage featured no less than five stories about the gang.

The gang made the national headlines once again, due to a high profile murder that occurred less than two weeks ago.

We may remember a 16 old girl and her friend were viciously attacked and murdered on Long Island on September 13, 2016. You may also recall that the 16 old victim’s mother Evelyn Rodriguez, was recognized by President Trump during his State of the Union address.

On Friday, September 14, Ms. Rodriguez was struck and killed by an SUV. The driver of the vehicle had been arguing with Evelyn, when he just sped forward, struck and killed her. Congressman Peter King (R-NY) was on his way to meet Evelyn at her daughter’s grave site when he got word of the murder.

And that should be the end of it – a tragic occurrence. Police have the driver in custody and have yet to disclose his ties to MS-13, if any. read more

I Must Disagree with Mollie’s Dad

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Mollie Tibbetts’s dad, Rob Tibbetts, wrote an Op-Ed for the Des Moines Register this past Saturday. It was heart-felt and obviously written by a Dad who adored his daughter and wishes to shield his family from further pain.

That being said, this may be the most ill-advised article I’ve ever written and will probably land me in some hot water, but I none-the-less feel compelled to write it. So here we go.

Rob Tibbetts writes that, “At the outset, politicians and pundits used Mollie’s death to promote various political agendas. We appealed to them and they graciously stopped. For that, we are grateful. Sadly, others have ignored our request. They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed.”

I get that, which is why it’s difficult for me to publically disagree and take issue.

First, there are dirtbags on the right who really are died-in-the-wool white supremacists and racists, and wish everyone who isn’t white to get gone. That’s too bad, but this being a free country, they have every right to their own opinions, no matter how vile. read more

A Leftist Questions a Leftist? What is the World Coming To?

Have we just woke up in bizarro world? I mean – what the heck just happened? A liberal host on CNN actually questions a leftist democrat Senator whether her outrage is genuine? Is this not a fireable offense?

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin could not get a straight answer out of Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.) Wednesday when she accosted her about the hypocrisy of demanding President Donald Trump change the family separation policy that existed before he took office.

“Did you speak up against them then?” read more
