Julian Assange exposed a massive treasonous plot hatched within the Obama administration, our Intelligence Community and the DNC, as well as rampant corruption during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State and throughout the Clinton Foundation, but the clearly compromised DOJ wants to indict a whistleblower who showed more courage and moral fortitude than their entire department? So we can’t welcome back, protect and debrief a man filled with extensive knowledge regarding the greatest threats to our Constitutional Republic, but it’s perfectly acceptable when the DOJ, FBI and Robert Mueller freely grant immunity to Deep State accomplices and members of the Clinton cartel? Pathetic and insidious.
Sheer insanity. Can anyone imagine this happening 10 or 15 years ago? First of all, a teacher shouldn’t even have to thank students for standing and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. They should feel compelled to honor America and the flag without reward or request. Second, how is this inappropriate or a fireable offense? Some progressive educators have stood on or defiled the flag without any consequences. Western nations have lost their minds trying to appease cultural marxists, native apologists and scheming globalists. The more our youth are taught to disrespect and disparage their own country, the sooner their ranks feel empowered to assist our enemies in dismantling America.
A major global warming study has been debunked, as the researchers now admit they got their math calculations wrong.
“We really muffed” the numbers.
The co-author of a much-hyped, peer-reviewed, alarmist paper claiming to have found a huge, unexpected build-up of global warming heat in the oceans has admitted: “We really muffed” the calculations.
According to the paper by Laure Resplandy et al, published this month in the prestigious journal Nature, a lot of the missing heat from global warming — 60 percent more than hitherto thought — has been absorbed by the oceans.
Naturally, this shocking discovery caused much excitement across mainstream media and was widely reported by environmental correspondents as proof that the global warming crisis was more serious than evah.
However, their exultant doom-mongering has been short-lived. An independent analyst, Nic Lewis, examined the paper and quickly spotted it was based on flawed math.
As the Global Warming Policy Forum reported:
Independent climate scientist Nicholas Lewis has uncovered a major error in a recent scientific paper that was given blanket coverage in the English-speaking media. The paper, written by a team led by Princeton oceanographer Laure Resplandy, claimed that the oceans have been warming faster than previously thought. It was announced, in news outlets including the BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and Scientific American that this meant that the Earth may warm even faster than currently estimated.
However Lewis, who has authored several peer-reviewed papers on the question of climate sensitivity and has worked with some of the world’s leading climate scientists, has found that the warming trend in the Resplandy paper differs from that calculated from the underlying data included with the paper.
“If you calculate the trend correctly, the warming rate is not worse than we thought – it’s very much in line with previous estimates,” says Lewis.
In fact, says Lewis, some of the other claims made in the paper and reported by the media, are wrong too.
“Their claims about the effect of faster ocean warming on estimates of climate sensitivity (and hence future global warming) and carbon budgets are just incorrect anyway, but that’s a moot point now we know that about their calculation error”.
Now, one of the paper’s co-authors, Ralph Keeling has gamely fessed up to the error — and hinted that this effectively invalidates the paper:
“Unfortunately, we made mistakes here,” said Ralph Keeling, a climate scientist at Scripps, who was a co-author of the study. “I think the main lesson is that you work as fast as you can to fix mistakes when you find them.”
The central problem, according to Keeling, came in how the researchers dealt with the uncertainty in their measurements. As a result, the findings suffer from too much doubt to definitively support the paper’s conclusion about just how much heat the oceans have absorbed over time.
The central conclusion of the study — that oceans are retaining ever more energy as more heat is being trapped within Earth’s climate system each year — is in line with other studies that have drawn similar conclusions. And it hasn’t changed much despite the errors. But Keeling said the authors’ miscalculations mean there is actually a much larger margin of error in the findings, which means researchers can weigh in with less certainty than they thought.
“I accept responsibility for what happened because it’s my role to make sure that those kind of details got conveyed,” Keeling said.
There are broader lessons here which — as so often before — are likely to be completely lost on the climate alarmist establishment.
One lesson is that climate skeptics are not scientific ignoramuses. They boast a huge range of independent experts like Nic Lewis who on many occasions have proved themselves more intellectually agile and better informed on climate science than the alarmist “consensus” gatekeepers in academe and at institutions like NASA and NOAA.
Another lesson is — as has been clear since Climategate — the peer-review system for scientific papers, especially if they have anything to do with climate change, is bust. Too often it is just a pal-review system in which chums on the climate change gravy train pass their colleagues’ work for publication nem con. Such is the appetite among alarmists for “evidence” that supports their doomsday thesis that the scarier it is, the more likely it is to get published.
Another lesson is that the mainstream media simply cannot be trusted to apply any kind of professional scrutiny to alarmist papers. No environmental correspondent, it’s true, would have had the advanced math skills that Nic Lewis used to find the paper false.
But the fact remains that there is not one science or environment correspondent attached to any mainstream media publication prepared to do their due diligence on global warming scare stories. They are all so wedded to the alarmist consensus that they scarcely even bother to alter the press release.
Finally, do not expect this humiliating retraction to be given anywhere near the prominence afforded the original story. This is how the climate scare machine works: the hysteria is only ever ratcheted upwards, never dialed down.

I truly feel sorry for those powerless, ordinary citizens who lost their homes and livelihoods in the massive California wildfires…not whining celebrities who refuse to blame Jerry Brown and pseudo-science environmentalists for this catastrophe. When you reject proper land management, thinning dense forests and controlled burns of woodlands because political hacks erroneously equate such fire prevention maintenance to raping or clear cutting the land, the results speak for themselves. The same Democratic legislators who recently voted to prolong an ongoing water crisis, are equally intent on sacrificing billions of dollars in lost natural resources, habitat destruction and infrastructure damages because celebrity tree huggers believe the removal of a single tree, even underbrush overgrowth, is a crime against nature itself. Liberalism is far more than a mental disease; it is an elitist ponzi scheme that robs the innocent of their lives, property and dignity.
Another day and Brenda Snipes still hasn’t been charged or arrested for admittedly destroying ballots, fraudulently filling out provisional ballots, submitting absentee ballot totals after the state imposed deadline or accepting/including votes from noncitizens. To add insult to injury, she’s actually overseeing the recount in Broward County. If I lived in Florida I would be incensed and demanding justice. There is no acceptable excuse for this type of apathy, favoritism and inaction.
The American soldier is the backbone of our liberties; the rock upon which tyranny must break. Without their sacrifice, their unwavering commitment to this nation and the ideals it espouses, this republic not only would have fallen but its beacon of hope would have been extinguished long ago beneath the smoke-ridden battlefields of Lexington, Bunker Hill, or Yorktown. Tragically, despite the fact millions of Americans bask in the opportunity and affluence of their God-given rights, those procured by the unassuming few, the sacrifices and struggles of our veterans too often go unappreciated or unnoticed; especially by those with the most blessings or disagreeable political beliefs. Many needlessly suffer from debilitating physical injuries or undiagnosed mental illness, countless are unable to find work or sufficiently provide for their families who faithfully endured sleepless nights, and a disturbing number of our veterans – roughly 40,000 without shelter and an estimated 300,000 lacking adequate food – roam the littered streets of modern apathy without proper healthcare or even the faintest gesture of concern. And yes, there are those forsaken souls who commit suicide, one veteran nearly every hour of every day, to escape a hell most ordinary citizens could scarcely conceive.
The next time you stand in line for the newest technological marvel, complain about traffic or the everyday contrivances of modern inconvenience, remember that these brave men and women represent the forgotten, the nameless, the silhouette of bravery manning the gates of freedom; the billowing breath standing steadfast in the darkest corners of the world so that America, war’s widowed children, may peacefully slumber beneath the unfurled dawn of liberty’s light. Duty, valor, honor, God, country? These are not commercial taglines left to bleed off a bumper sticker or fade from a politician’s neglected promise. They are the timeless values, the intrinsic calling, the undying creed of United States veterans; those fathers and friends, brothers and brethren, who proudly served so the huddled masses may continue to breathe.
Veterans Day is not just another day of empty revelry and convenient celebration. It’s our unbridled privilege, our inherent obligation as free men and women, to stand beside those heroes who restored our faith in humanity. It is our nonnegotiable responsibility to thank our veterans, not on any singular occasion or nationally ordained day of recognition, but to seek out those who have fallen into the callous cracks of society’s indifference and restore their faith in America. It is our sacred duty to honor theirs, now and forever!
In his bitter and petty Armistice Day speech, French President Macron attacked Donald Trump by uttering one of the most idiotic statements in human history: “Nationalism is treason.” And what is it called when an unchecked and unvetted army of Muslim immigrants burn and destroy private property, riot and attack innocent bystanders, turn sections of the historic Champs-Elysees into a tent city, and receive preferential treatment over actual French citizens? Patriotism? France now has the highest population of Muslim immigrants in the Western world, along with the debt and depravity to prove it. Unbeknownst to Mr. Macron, you can instinctively place your nation’s interests first, a robust economy with sovereign borders and a strong national defense, and still respectfully liberate those “globalist” allies who appeased and empowered bloodthirsty tyrants like Hitler and Mussolini to their countrys’ ruination, or foolishly built a nuclear reactor for Saddam Hussein in 1981. In other words, a simple thank you for the selfless sacrifice of our Armed Forces would have sufficed.
Why does Linda Sarsour keep getting invited to speak on anti-Semitism? This disgrace of a “civil rights” activist is an Islamic supremacist who despises Jews, Israel, Christians, white men and America with every bone in her body. Any yet she is embraced by the media, Hollywood and Democratic leaders while prominent conservatives are being banned from speaking at public institutions. Wherever this seditious fraud appears to spread her vile propaganda, routinely advocating Sharia Law over the Constitution and demanding Muslim immigrants “resist” assimilating, she should be met by an army of outraged protesters. If you love liberty, equality and religious freedom, Linda Sarsour is the epitome of hate and intolerance. The world has lost its damn mind.
Why is it whenever a trunk or truckful of uncounted ballots magically appear, it always benefits a Democratic candidate narrowly trailing in a critical election? Well, that’s because it’s common knowledge the left will go to any length to hijack any result that threatens their agenda. Vote fraud is real, rampant and a serious threat to all Americans.
Demand a National Election Reform Act that universally requires the following:
All voter registration must be physically conducted at a sanctioned County or State office requiring an instant photo and fingerprint once legal citizenship status is verified.
–Mandatory Voter ID cards must be presented at every precinct, while all electronic ballot machines instantly record/verify each voter’s identity.
–Every voting machine must be fully tested for any potential irregularities – changing votes or wrongful tabulations – by an independent expert (without any political ties or funding) before voting begins, as well as examined after the election to ensure accuracy or possible coding alterations.
–End all provisional ballots. Any individual who is not properly registered or lacks a mandatory Voter ID card cannot vote.
–Absentee ballots must be received, verified, and fully counted before election day with the results submitted to each state’s election office. Any attempt to delay this process or destroy ballots will result in termination and incarceration.
–Require independent, trained monitors for all poll workers and live cameras to record every precinct throughout the day. Poll workers must pass background checks and divulge all political affiliations.
–Results from any precinct or county that indicate voting anomalies – more votes that than registered voters, double voting, unaccounted ballots presented after polls close – will be suspended and immediately audited until the authenticity of every vote is verified.
Vote fraud is not a Republican or Democrat issue, but a treasonous crime that undermines the integrity of every vote and the legitimacy of our elections. Those activists who continue to obstruct and politicize these desperately needed reforms are either guilty of committing vote fraud or simply complicit with subverting the people’s will. If voting is truly our most sacred duty to ensure the survival of our Constitutional liberties and national sovereignty, then the efficacy of our election laws should reflect that honor, privilege and nonnegotiable responsibility.
To put tonight in perspective…
Republicans retain control of the Senate and will probably end up with a 6 or 8 vote margin. What does that mean? Any absurd but predictable attempt to impeach Trump will fail being it requires a two-thirds majority, while any potential Supreme Court nominee will be RINO proof and a lock for confirmation. Both advantages are priceless. For historical purposes, only 5 times in the past 100 years has a sitting President actually increased his party’s lead in the Senate. And yes I’m partially crediting Donald Trump for his exhaustive campaigning.
As for the House of Representatives, Democrats will end up with a very slim majority…perhaps 220 to 215…give or take a few. They will obstruct, waste valuable time and resources on pointless investigations, but nothing House Democrats pass will become law without the Senate and President’s approval. If they choose to continue to act like unhinged, juvenile radicals, I believe it will only help Trump in 2020. Expect a lot more Executive Orders, but because the President is extremely adept at making deals, also expect a few potential blockbusters. Sadly, I’m betting on at least one government shutdown as a calculated political stunt to purposely sabotage the economy and manipulate public opinion.
All in all, I’m thrilled some of the most extreme liberal candidates were defeated…Beto, Gillum, and Abrams to name just a few. Unfortunately, it was disappointing to see a number of very winnable House seats needlessly fall due to either poorly run campaigns, lackluster turnout or inept candidates. A number of Never Trumpers, forever whining GOP moderates, failed to inspire enough interest. Their defeats were costly but possibly a blessing in disguise. The left spent a fortune on this election and far too many of their slanderous attacks dominated television, radio airwaves and social media without an equally vigilant response. When left without an alternative message, the uninformed will accept the most readily available narrative as truth.
Regardless of the media spin and partisan overreaction, just remember Barack Obama was crushed in the 2010, 2014 midterms and still handily defeated Romney. If Donald Trump continues to create jobs and put America first both domestically and abroad, I foresee a convincing re-election.
Relax, reload and smile because no matter what happens tonight, a tireless and fearless pragmatist named Donald Trump will still be our President tomorrow and for many more days to come. Disappointment, struggle, is often the greatest catalyst of future success.
God Bless and goodnight, my friends! Never relent in defending the country, values and people you love!
Save your sanity and disregard these ridiculous weighted polls the mainstream media are pushing at the 11th hour. This is the same projection nonsense liberal pundits used in 2016 in hopes of suppressing turnout. Do you actually believe with the economy at historic highs, nationwide rallies filled to the rafters, Republicans leading in early voting, and the left still reeling from the fallout of the Kavanaugh hearing and their sponsored caravan, that there’s going to be a blowout? Not a chance in hell. At worst, Republicans will increase their lead in the Senate and lose the House by less than 10 seats. It’s also by no means a longshot that the GOP maintains control of both chambers by a respectable margin. If you haven’t already, get out and vote and the rest will take care of itself! Turnout is everything.
Here’s a little tonic for the nerves…
Stunning early-voting numbers ahead of Election Day (42% Reps and 41% Dems)
nbc ^ | 11/05/18 | allan smith
Posted on 11/5/2018, 8:16:41 PM by Ravi
More than 35 million americans early votes have been counted – well more than the total cast in the 2014 midterms. The NBC news data analytics Lab, using voter file data from TargetSmart, found that 35,526,881 early votes were counted nationwide as of Monday. In states that have early voting, 42 percent of voters are Republican, 41 percent are Democrats, and 17 percent have either independent or have another party affiliation.
Republican-affiliated voters have outpaced Democratic-affiliated voters in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee and Texas. In Nevada, Democratic-affiliated voters have outpaced their Republican counterparts.
The total early vote as of Election Day in 2016, a presidential election year when turnout is much higher, was 46,314,207. And this was well before thousands decided to walk away from the Democratic Party and a record 40% of black voters approved of Donald Trump.
If you truly love America, unconditionally reject mob violence and political censorship, appreciate a revitalized economy full of opportunity and hope, were disgusted how Democrats attempted to frame Judge Kavanaugh and ruin his family’s life, despise the hateful and profane regression of modern feminism, are sick and tired of Hollywood’s immoral hypocrisy and partisan condescension, demand an end to our public schools serving as liberal indoctrination centers, believe in the rule of law and the absolute necessity of legal immigration, refuse to apologize for your heritage, and want to empower a leader that always puts America and her people first without hesitation or regret, then voting tomorrow should not be an obligation but a privilege to deny the Democrat Party yet another opportunity to obstruct and falsely malign the most accomplished American President in perhaps 70 years.
Donald Trump has not only revealed how divisive, dishonest and destructive the modern left has willingly become since 2008, he has reminded us the difference between rhetoric and results, propaganda and patriotism. I, for one, am immensely grateful to support a man who braves daily scorn and endless media hostility simply to work tirelessly on behalf of the America people. No matter what you must do, no matter who you must convince, please get as many like-minded people to the polls tomorrow. Today’s Democratic Party – that which would denounce JFK as a Right Wing capitalist, Christian extremist, and white nationalist – is no longer attempting to hide its radical intentions, blind lust for power or violent contempt for America. “We the People” therefore must choose civility, liberty, and self-preservation before that option may no longer exist. For an iconic CEO and internationally-regarded pragmatist who has achieved so much despite facing so many orchestrated obstacles, elaborate schemes and slanderous accusations over the past two years, imagine how much more our President could accomplish when bitter children, conspiring traitors and fake journalists weren’t all sitting on his feet?
Although I’m obviously a staunch conservative, I unequivocally hate the two-party system: it’s destructive, wasteful, and reduces the absolute necessity of constructive problem solving into an incessant tug-of-war that is obsessed with partisan supremacy rather than sound decision making. There is nothing democratic or progressive about legalized monopolies and untouchable, career politicians. If I had the authority, I would abolish all political parties, end political action committees, permanently ban lobbyists, enact term limits and place a strict limitation on campaign fundraising and spending. Squandering 8 billion on midterm races when America has homeless citizens, an eroding infrastructure, an epidemic of illegal immigration and a glaring need for educational reform is irresponsible and simply unacceptable. Elections should be about ideas, competing convictions, not hoarded slush funds of mass manipulation. People must once again learn to think for themselves instead of becoming willingly brainwashed by media propagandists, Hollywood hypocrites, special interest terrorists and self-serving, corrupt bureaucrats who are grossly enriching themselves in lieu of faithfully serving this Constitutional Republic.
Mr. Fake Hispanic Beto has been busted on video for funneling campaign funds to the migrant caravan. Tell me again how that is not a direct violation of election finance laws, let alone treason for any potential U.S. representative aiding a foreign, militant invasion of their own country? These candidates Democrats are currently showcasing – Abrams, Gillum, Beto, Sinema, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez – are by far the most radical and ignorant collection of anti-American subversives I have witnessed in my lifetime. If anyone ever had any doubts about the left’s true agenda, loyalties and intentions, consider yourself warned. Once upon a time, Communists, Socialists and anarchists were treated as enemies of the state, not celebrated by the media as agents of “hope and change”. It’s a travesty and national embarrassment any of these political extremists are even on the ballot.
I’m frequently asked what can be done to save America from this rising onslaught of radical progressivism. Other than reforming our educational system, producing more right-minded teachers, tirelessly debunking Fake News, investing in alternative sources of mass media, registering new party members and voting as if our life depended on it, the best advice I can give is for conservatives in hopelessly liberal states – California, New York, Illinois, Oregon, etc – to relocate to Texas, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona. Elections are number games, especially to scheming leftists, which is exactly why Barack Obama opened the floodgates to Islamic “refugees” and slowed deportations of illegals from Central/South America. Once Texas turns Blue, a Republican will likely never win the presidency again and a massive wave of immigration, followed by blanket amnesty and socialism, will inevitably ensue. That’s why Democrats are spending obscene amounts to demographically and ideologically terraform traditionally Red strongholds. This is also why apathy and lack of voter turnout are simply unacceptable. Too much is at stake.
I fully support the President’s desire to end “Birthright Citizenship”….a long overdue action which will eventually require an act of Congress even though it’s not explicitly in the Constitution. Babies born in America to non-citizens should not become “automatic” citizens. Thousands of women now travel to the U.S. solely to have a baby, anchor babies, using their child’s instant legal status as justification for the parents and other family members to remain in or to immigrate to our country. Exploitive, costly and just plain wrong.
Btw, Birthright Citizenship ended in India 1987, France 1993, Ireland 2005, and Australia 2007.
“Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country.”
Senator Jacob Howard, author of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Note to the muckraking media…nationalism has nothing to do with race and everything to do with love of country and the timeless ideals America was founded upon that benefits all her people. If you’re looking for someone to blame for the Jewish synagogue shooting, condemn the deranged, anti-Trump lunatic and the one political party that has never denounced Farrakahn, Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah and the clear anti-Semitic, foreign policies of one Barack Obama and the United Nations. No one is more dishonest, dangerous and deplorable than the Fake News establishment purposely dividing America for partisan gain.
Cesar Sayoc is the arrested suspect. Sorry media hypnotists but this dude is not white…not that it should matter. He is currently associated with one company, according to public records, which was incorporated in Florida two years ago: Native American Catering & Vending. So were all the immaculate, unfaded pro-Trump stickers on his van actually legit or just for false pretenses? Either this guy was fearless and didn’t care about attracting vandals or extremely meticulous despite painting a huge target on himself. Whether or not it’s accurate, MyLife lists his party affiliation as Democrat although he supposedly registered as a Republican in 2016. Below is an actual mugshot from 2005.
Yes, Cesar Sayoc very well may be guilty, but why would a free man and known felon change his party affiliation of over 20 years, cover his van with inflammatory images that stick out like a sore thumb, only to know he would go back to prison for the rest of life for not actually trying to kill the liberal figures he supposedly despised, but for consciously delivering/sending “fake” bombs that changed absolutely nothing. Just mind-boggling.
Notice a common denominator? Whether these packages are from a legitimate, angry partisan or are simply a hoax designed to solicit sympathy before midterms, these unarmed devices were obviously meant to intimidate, target those prominent individuals whose hostile rhetoric would serve as a clear motive, rather than result in any loss of life.
Barack Obama: Get in your neighbors’ face, argue with them. If your political opponents bring a knife, you should bring a gun.
Hillary Clinton: Democrats cannot be civil until we take control again.
Joe Biden: I’d like to take Trump behind the woodshed and hit him.
Eric Holder: When they go low, we kick them.
Robert De Niro: I’d like to punch Donald Trump in the face.
So when Ricin was sent to General Mattis, the White House and Ted Cruz’s office by a liberal nutjob America wasn’t under attack, but we are now? Hypocrisy at its finest.
Much to the chagrin of media pundits, public response to the massive caravan is showing a boost in polling for Republican candidates. Alas, time for a new syndicated headline to firm up support for those sagging numbers. If the culprit of these “intercepted” packages truly hated Obama, Hillary and CNN, why would they perpetrate such a stunt so close to midterms knowing it could hurt their party’s election chances? And why send some of the devices to locations where the targets no longer reside? My bet is still on a false flag, aided by loyaltists remaining within the intelligence community, or perhaps even a Never Trumper so blinded by hate that they are willing to sabotage the President at any cost. Then again, if a mentally ill partisan is actually to blame, such concerns or consequences rarely register in their motives.
If these terroristic threats turn out to be credible, traced to an actual person, then I unconditionally condemn the individual(s) responsible. Simply unacceptable. However, as we all know, those obsessed with control will do anything to maintain or regain power. As such, what do you do when your vaunted Blue Wave has potentially been reduced to a toilet bowl trickle just before midterms? Simultaneously mail anonymous bombs to beloved Democrats to distract outraged voters from your party’s false crucifixion of Judge Kavanaugh and planned invasion caravan by blaming Right Wing extremists for the very escalating hostility leftists have been universally advocating. Predictably devious for those shameless dregs who are forever victims of their own Marxist devices. When it’s time to firm up those sagging poll numbers, dare I say construct a more beneficial media narrative, sympathy and anger can be highly-effective tools of mass persuasion. No matter who is the culprit, this rejection of civility and basic human decency is a direct reflection of our moral degradation as a society.
So Venezuelans are destitute and literally starving, eating pets and digging in trash cans, but their failed, socialist government decides to help bankroll a massive caravan organized by radical Honduran activists? But of course America is still the bad guy according to plotting globalists and abetting Democrats. Reckless and unforgivable.
If this recruited caravan is able to remain largely intact as they head towards the U.S., overcoming the remnants of Hurricane Willa set to cross into Mexico Tuesday evening, they will either try to overwhelm our troops with mass numbers at one location, making our soldiers use force to halt their progress, or they will divide up, fan out and attempt to cross the border at many different points. Regardless, how much will this orchestrated invasion ultimately cost taxpayers in terms of military logistics – manpower, equipment, fuel, supplies – as well as possibly arresting, detaining and providing basic provisions for the mob? If constructing an effective border wall doesn’t make sense to the American public now, it never will. Want to be an American citizen rather than a 5-time deported agitator who curses the rule of law? Fill out the damn paperwork and respect the process granted to all foreign applicants! It’s far less wasteful and dangerous for all parties involved.
The clear, unapologetic goal of this sponsored caravan is to incite mass chaos at the border, hoping this politically-engineered powder keg results in violence, arrests and even televised casualties. It’s obvious the fawning media wants nothing more than to generate public sympathy for these invaders, thus questioning the legitimacy our immigration laws, by once again accusing President Trump of racism, crimes against humanity, and abuse of power. However, if you ask me, this entire orchestrated fiasco is actually proving just how badly America needs a border wall to immediately restore some semblance of order and reaffirm our afforded naturalization process; which, by the way, is a privilege earned by honoring the legal requirements. The sheer cost of caring for millions of illegals, coupled with the financial and human toll of combatting foreign-born crime and disease, far outweighs the security infrastructure necessary to protect our communities, economy and national sovereignty. Why would the already fleeced and marginalized American people indulge the militant threats of noncitizens who will eventually elect socialist Democrats that are hellbent on turning this Constitutional Republic into the very corrupt, impoverished, and immoral cesspools their beloved migrating hoard is supposedly fleeing? Doors have locks for the same reason countries have internationally-recognized borders: not all strangers are friendly and entering a private residence is not a civil right.
The man on the far right of the first picture is wearing the same “The Future is Female” t-shirt that has been widely distributed in America by leftist political groups: LGBT, pro-Hillary factions, and Planned Parenthood activists. Let me guess…there’s a huge male market for feminist attire in patriarchal Central America? Or maybe, just maybe, these items were donated by the same “hopelessly destitute” marchers who were also handing out free cash because they’re too impoverished to survive in their native homelands. Of course, lest we forget, refugees don’t wave their national flags while threatening violence if they’re not unconditionally accepted by a host country. That designation is reserved for invaders, terrorists, and enemy combatants. Refugees are typically so desperate for food, shelter from war and medical assistance, their ranks will almost always submit to any requirements necessary for saving their loved ones’ lives. It literally sickens me how progressives have orchestrated this propaganda caravan – uprooting women and children to shield the other 90% of its members who consist of younger militant males, human traffickers, gang members and even some ISIS operatives – solely to manufacture a humanitarian crisis, an international spectacle, for the explicit purpose of demonizing President Trump just before midterms because he refuses to capitulate to the many inherent dangers of mass illegal immigration.
When either party has controlled both the White House and Congress, only a handful of times in the past 115 sessions did the majority power retain both the House and the Senate after midterms. Democrats were crushed by historic losses in 2010 and 2014, yet Barack Obama still won the presidency in 2012 despite sporting the worst economic record of any Chief Executive seeking re-election since World War II.
While history may be against us on November 6th, America’s economic resurgence and the disturbing escalating radicalism of the modern left – openly running socialist or Islamic candidates, advocating open borders, aiding/protecting illegal immigrants, Deep State collusion, attacking free speech and religious liberty, inciting partisan hostility in our communities and public institutions – make this election far from a routine or predictable affair. As always, regardless of media reports touting massive voter registration, Republican and Independent turnout are the greatest key to sustaining this rebirth of American exceptionalism and preserving any common sense notion of law and order.
Can the GOP once again win the House of Representatives? Yes, but this proposition is far more volatile being all 435 seats are up grabs and complacency is our worst enemy without a polarizing figure like Hillary Clinton to galvanize voter resolve; which, ironically, should pale in comparison to the sheer level of outrage generated over what has transpired during the past 2 years. With few new opportunities for gains, Republicans must win a large majority of those House seats – 92% or 218 out of 235 races – already in their control. A tall task no matter how beneficial the circumstances.
The U.S. Senate, on the other hand, is currently poised to add another 2 to 3 Red seats, bolstering our slim 51-49 advantage to a more functional margin of 6 or 8 votes; easily enough to guard against the mercurial whims of RINO Senators like Collins, Murkowski, Sasse and Corker. Although the idea of losing the House is tough to stomach, the Senate’s role in confirming Supreme Court justices, federal judges, and presiding over any baseless impeachment attempts is far more vital to the White House and the survival of America. It would simply mean President Trump would have to deal with shameless propagandists, social agitators and treasonous mercenaries in order to pass any new or groundbreaking legislation; a struggle that I do not welcome but nevertheless could bolster his re-election chances by further exposing the juvenile tactics of progressive terrorists.
No matter what the final outcome, we the vigilant citizens exercising or abandoning our electoral duty are ultimately responsible for what transpires. If a mere 60% of our ranks go to polls – those who demand and deeply appreciate lower taxes, a vibrant economy, higher pay, a stronger military, quality care for our veterans, responsible education, cheaper healthcare options, a secure border, public civility, eliminating fiscal aid to radical regimes, and a restored respect for emergency responders, the Flag and our national heritage – the only excuses required on November 7th will be the collective tears of those cultural Marxists who have declared war on the Constitution, God and the American Dream. If you elected Donald Trump because you believed in his political convictions, patriotic intentions and proven ability to honor his promises, or you just recently walked away from the dysfunctional carnage that is now the Democratic Party, then allow America’s most accomplished and fearless leader in over 30 years to finish what he started: serving this great Republic by draining the overflowing cesspool of Washington corruption.
And you can absolutely bet the American left is behind this sham; the second such “caravan of immigrants” in 6 months. Anything to manufacture a crisis and seize national headlines. At least we finally have a President who has the backbone to stand up to this nonsense and strip all funding from any country aiding or abetting illegal immigration. The real question is…when is our government going to start arresting or exiling anti-American agitators like George Soros, Valerie Jarrett and Linda Sarsour?
These incessant games that undermine our sovereignty, waste billions in taxpayer money and threaten the integrity of our elections are criminal, if not distinctly treasonous. It’s extremely disconcerting Democrats will do anything to aid illegal immigration by protecting sanctuary cities, only to claim a wall is wasteful, unnecessary and racist. When did the safety and livelihoods of actual citizens become afterthoughts in American society?
So ignorant and hateful. And this is the best candidate Arizona Democrats have to offer? My mother was a stay-at-home parent who worked tirelessly from morning till night caring for 6 children and rarely had a serene moment to herself. Her contributions were invaluable. This type of vile rhetoric is obviously a subversive attack against traditional gender roles because such selfless devotion does not conform to modern feminist norms. I would never marginalize whether a woman pursued a professional career or freely chose to maintain her household full-time for both are commendable and uniquely beneficial to society. Some moms are afforded such opportunities, while others are left with no viable alternative. I just never found the juvenile need to disparage the efforts and sacrifice of any mother simply to validate a destructive political agenda or to compensate for any petty, personal insecurities. Judging by the rampant culture of disrespect and indoctrinated intolerance currently consuming our youth, America needs far more well-adjusted children raised by loving homes than spiteful, immoral bureaucrats seeking to control our lives from a soulless pulpit of dirty special interests. We “old fashioned” families understand invested mothers and fathers can change the world long before our “progressive” critics leave bibles in prison cells as parting gifts for every future lost to the billion-dollar war on common sense.
The full quote: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bullshit.”
Please beware, Antifa and BLM factions are planning nationwide protests on November 4th, as well as organized disruptions on election day at select precincts to intimidate voters. All the more reason to participate in early voting. However, if you do witness or experience any such criminal actions, do not hesitate to contact law enforcement and state election officials. As for those gutless cowards preying on the vulnerable and in the process our electoral duties, I have one bit of solemn advice: anyone who threatens my civil liberties or my family’s safety will permanently lose the ability to walk before they can ask Siri how to spell “revolution” in the trunk of their Uber ride. I’m a tolerant, respectful man but I will not hesitate to beat a fascist brat down with their comrade’s aluminum bat and sell popcorn to their transgender girlfriend’s involuntary sex change with a Fjallraven backpack during intermission to a public viewing of “Unforgiven”. In other words, while you’re searching for your kneecaps and nonbinary chromosomes in the emergency room, I will file for the cinematic rights to your new career as a communal colostomy bag evicted from your parent’s remodeled basement for moral vagrancy. Viva la liberte and may God continue to bless our Constitutional Republic!
I’m still not quite sure what’s more idiotic…the fact Elizabeth Warren secretly took a DNA test in a desperate attempt to salvage her “scalped” credibility or the actual result which she now claims is “proof” despite revealing the European socialist is approximately 1/1024th “Indian” with no discernible genetic lineage to American Indians; i.e., merely those who migrated to North America across the Bering Strait just like countless other nomadic peoples for thousands of years. Considering many historical tribes require a 25% ancestral match for official inclusion and nearly all colleges require (at minimum) a 1/16th bloodline to qualify for state or federal benefits, that means Pocahontas’ .0009% claim to minority privilege is about as likely as her great, great, great, great grandmother spiking John Smith’s tea at Jamestown, rather than conjured from a Peyote-induced hallucination during the Massachusetts Senator’s resume-building party before applying to teach at Harvard. That’s right, Elizabeth…Soylent Green is made of people. Leprechauns to the indiscriminate druid!
Congratulations, Chief Whatchamacallit…even your adopted tribe has rejected you! Perhaps for Halloween you can be a Spanish Conquistador unable to obtain voter ID.
If you’re in Michigan, and have any spare time, please volunteer to campaign for John James. He’s an intelligent, articulate, America First candidate who reminds me a lot of Allen West. The Senate could really use a selfless man of integrity like John James.
In the Washington Post, columnist Marc Thiessen said that Trump has proven to be successful at keeping his campaign promises. He wrote, “The fact is, in his first two years, Trump has compiled a remarkable record of presidential promise-keeping.”

Senate Democrats are insisting the FBI report, when completed, remains confidential. But if that investigation revealed anything remotely negative about Kavanaugh, their corrupt ranks would leak the contents in a heartbeat. If by some miracle the FBI exposes this partisan sham for what it is, then America deserves to know the truth and the Kavanaughs deserve an engraved apology from the progressive lynch mob. This entire charade is a about preserving a soulless lie, delaying a man’s rightful ascension to the Supreme Court, rather than restoring some semblance of sanity, dignity and accountability to the confirmation process.
Honestly, I’m extremely torn about conducting another FBI investigation. While I welcome any necessary validation to ensure Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, I do not trust the FBI whatsoever. And yes, what are they really going to discover after six in-depth background checks, polygraph tests and exhaustive questioning under oath by the Senate Judiciary Committee? The slightest hint he could have done something inappropriate or juvenile during his youth (which most have), even without evidence or a law being broken, will be used by the media to suggest he’s not worthy….which could easily spook the feckless Flake and Susan Collins into torpedoing his chances. I also harbor reservations about how much leverage Democrats can employ over this charade to taint the FBI’s inquiry being they so desperately opined for a new one. The FBI obviously has zero credibility since their vast anti-Trump plot was uncovered, so either investigators will make it a point to discredit this witch hunt to save some semblance of integrity, or their defiant hierarchy will double down and prove how utterly compromised the Bureau has become. The fact agents immediately contacted Deborah Ramirez over her petty accusation of a random “flashing” at a house party, not to be confused with collecting Mardi Gras beads on a public balcony, seems like a pointless waste of resources unless their intent is to expose her obvious motives and questionable timing.
It seems pretty evident our intelligence community is reluctant to research Feinstein’s corrupt handling and manipulation of this entire orchestrated smear, which is by far the most disturbing, impactful issue, and I highly doubt the FBI even considers looking into Ford’s credibility issues, conflicting testimony, shameless use of Clinton/Soros advisors, and promiscuous past. The last time I checked, slander, false accusations, perjury and collusion to cause personal injury were still serious crimes. I’m of the stern belief a public accusation of sexual misconduct cannot be reported by the press or considered by a governing body unless it has first been filed with local police, with a signed affidavit, before the Statute of Limitations has expired. That way if the allegation proves fraudulent, the accuser can and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, including subject to any pursued civil claim. There’s a stark contrast between legitimate character concerns over someone’s past, body of work, and a malicious campaign to destroy a nominee’s life for political gain.
But of course Senator Feinstein’s office was complicit even though she repeatedly denied being the culprit. And what will be the consequences for smearing a good man, inciting death threats against his family by leaking a completely unsubstantiated accusation, and triggering this national farce? Nothing.
So now the venerable FBI investigates baseless sexual harassment allegations from a known partisan zealot with mental health issues who repeatedly perjured herself? How convenient for the overflowing cesspool of dirty politicians infecting our government without a single care, earned indictment or hand-delivered bill for incalculable damages. Yes, how many soiled rats residing in the darkest depths of the Congressional “Swamp” would survive a 36-year rectal exam using their current pristine standard of character assassination? Perhaps the Deep State bomb squad will lobby the FISA court for a surveillance warrant to see how much Brett Kavanaugh farts in his sleep for the sake of unreported sexual assault cases or tasteless yearbook jokes. After all, Washington parasites with no discernible conscience or sense of civic duty truly want to know where to properly hide their settlement slush “fun”d!
This fabricated scandal is by far the most nefarious, if not the most obvious setup I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime. Not once during the entire nationally-televised hearing did a single Democratic Senator ask any question regarding Mrs. Ford’s recollection, motives, or conflicting testimony. Maybe I’m just old fashioned or due diligence is a fascist misnomer, but I’m not quite sure how “you’re so incredibly brave”, “thank you”, and “I believe you” constitute ascertaining a man’s innocence or guilt concerning a grave matter that forever haunt his family’s safety and well-being. When lynch mob justice rages without a solitary voice of reason rising from the gallows of the Democratic camp, tossing a few more “bodies” into the bonfire will keep the iron hot just long enough to permanently brand the innocent with the stigma of guilt.
Christine Ford never reported her “harrowing” ordeal to police over 30 years ago, mentioned it to her own parents or alerted Congress when Mr. Kavanaugh was first nominated as a Federal judge; although she openly despises his personal convictions and publicly advocates “resisting” everything the President pursues. How incredibly fortunate it must be for the #MeToo McCarthy militia that all of their “distraught and damaged” survivors consist of anti-Trump, liberal females with no corroborative evidence or legal consequences to match their knitted pink hats and feminist pitchforks? In social justice parlance, such celebrated duplicity is also known as sexism, discrimination, persecution.
Sorry, but in America presumption of innocence and burden of proof are still intrinsic to affording due process for people of all genders, creeds, and media stereotypes. If a mere unsubstantiated accusation can instantly ruin a man’s life, a highly-suspect event all of her so-called witnesses have contradicted to some degree, then it’s open season on your husbands, brothers, sons and male friends. The fact these reckless accusers can now be paraded across national media within minutes and compensated with huge payouts on GoFundMe account within days, only makes their allegations seem all the more disingenuous and cheap. The same confused, childish and robotic professor appearing on Capitol Hill very well may have been harrassed by someone at some time, never raped by her own hazy admission, I simply do not believe the well-respected and self-admitted virgin Brett Kavanaugh was her personal boogeyman.
And while it is technically true a naked prostitute loitering in a Frat house can still be a victim of sexual abuse, the “benefit of the doubt” does not lend itself to the foolish or morally obtuse who cannot even recall the most basic details. Maybe next time the unlicensed psychologist, published abortion activist and frequent-flier hypocrite will choose not to relish in the sheer multitude of her roughly 64 partners she once boasted (to close friends) having slept with in high school and college. If you’re attempting to “Kill A Mockingbird” with your own posthumous tears, you might want to try finding some shame before exposing your pro-bono harem of Clinton advisors. It’s not a fashion-forward look for publicly-financed martyrs, regardless of who is on top.
“The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process. But you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy.” – Judge Kavanaugh
As someone who works in the victim services field, I take any accusation of harassment or sexual misconduct with the greatest empathy and personal responsibility. Thus, if it was proven beyond a reasonable doubt Mr. Kavanaugh engaged in abusive behavior that inflicted significant physical and emotional trauma, I would be the first in line to support his removal as a Supreme Court nominee…. politics be damned. After all, the depravity we consciously condone as sentient brothers and sisters is the moral ambiguity by which humanity will inevitably fall.
Because due process requires due diligence, there is a vast difference between credible or incontrovertible proof – such as the personal admission and photographic evidence of Al Franken groping/kissing multiple women without consent – and secretive, coordinated, highly-suspect allegations from 36 years ago that are neither supported by named eye-witnesses or factually corroborated through police and medical reports. I find it ironic, criminally offensive, that a woman can sexually harass and even repeatedly fondle a man at a private party or public establishment without raising any red flags because most bystanders assume men like it. And while that may be true for some, others may be in a relationship, value their personal space or simply do not want to place themselves in a precarious situation where they could be confused as the aggressor for merely refusing a woman’s advances. Why is a male almost immediately condemned as a predator or a pervert for exposing himself, whether harmless or humorous in nature, but it’s far more acceptable for a young female to flash friends or complete strangers in the name of drunken “fun”?
Society cannot draw the proverbial line of acceptable behavior in the sand, fight the epidemic of sexual harassment, stalking and rape through victim advocacy and education, when such actions are blatantly ignored, fabricated or completely taken out of context solely to appease partisan terrorists. Until these hypocritical and discriminatory double standards are reconciled and the targets of false accusations are also viewed as “victims” equally worthy of justice, the disingenuous tactics used against Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Roy Moore and Brett Kavanaugh will continue to be the norm rather than the rightfully prosecuted.
The moment you realize your poorly-construed sob story has been thoroughly exposed and debunked as a smear tactic, even after scrubbing your social media accounts and falsifying witnesses, of course you’re going to make an endless list of outrageous demands to conveniently justify skipping a hearing due to “unfair” treatment; also known as “perjury” in judicial circles. Why risk being humiliated in front of millions for being a conniving, immoral liar when you can simply stay at home, receive countless book and talk show offers, by merely maintaining your status as a helpless victim without ever having to share a shred of credible evidence or any notion of common decency? Apparently, only conservative candidates and nominees must face a Congressional firing squad and raging media firestorm because the new “progressive” legal standard of “implied guilt” somehow believes the wrongfully accused must bear the burden of disproving a fictitious fairytale that never happened except in the mentally-deranged minds of partisan character assassins. But never fear, as long as Republican Senators and Press Secretaries are being threatened, censored and chased out of public establishments without any consequences or condemnation from political opponents, also known as fellow citizens, the final step towards achieving a fascist state of Marxist paranoia is false imprisonment and legalized murder. To the morally corrupt dregs of intolerance, the end always justifies the means.
Being nominated to the Supreme Court of the United States should have been a celebratory culmination of Brett Kavanaugh’s life, values, and body of work. Instead, a routine confirmation of a universally respected candidate with impeccable credentials has descended into a dystopian nightmare overflowing with partisan hate, colluding special interests, juvenile grandstanding, insulting double standards, violent threats and media smear campaigns because Democrats simply cannot accept the fact they’re not in control of our government, or more succinctly, our daily lives. Stay strong, Brett, because the dignity in which you’ve conducted yourself matters to millions, but most of all to the integrity of the Constitution, the personal reward of perseverance and the survival of this increasingly divided and dysfunctional Republic.
Progressivism 101: When the first sexual harassment allegation falls apart, introduce 5 more. Manifest your hatred of Donald Trump into believing you’re the actual victim of an imaginary crime to “resist” his authority, policies and nominees. Convince the public a great injustice has occurred to fundraise for socialist candidates, to promote divisive identity politics, and to increase voter turnout. Repeat as often as necessary.

While I seriously doubt the validity of any accusation at this point without concrete proof, epecially from an honored Soros Senior Fellow, is exposing yourself at a college party a crime or a drunken initiation? Are we going streaking wearing nothing but our nametags at a Gay Pride parade or skinny dipping with sorority sisters at a convent?
Well it must be a violent felony or constitute a form of unlicensed pornography because Democrats are once again calling for an FBI investigation over an unsubstantiated allegation of public nudity when Anthony Weiner sexted underage girls pictures of his Oscar Meyer surname.
What’s the word for embarrassingly desperate? The progressive establishment.
Behold the proud, ignorant hostility the left is embracing: disgraceful, sexist and unmistakably criminal. America is inexorably doomed if this type of mindless pretense prevails without immediate condemnation and stern consequences. Meanwhile, Judge Kavanaugh’s wife and young children are receiving continuous death threats for no other reason than a conservative judicial nominee with an impeccable record was wrongfully accused by an anti-Trump activist with a sordid past who has yet to produce one shred of tangible evidence to support her malicious claim. When did the required legal burden of proof become an automatic presumption of guilt in a country predicated upon protection against false prosecution? This Soros orchestrated mockery isn’t about justice or ascertaining the truth any more than it is a legitimate hearing to discern a Supreme Court candidate’s unquestionable qualifications. Otherwise the over 65 classmates and numerous legal subordinates who attested to his character would be brought before Congress or interviewed by the press. This is about an exploding movement of unhinged, progressive radicals – the Democratic party, jaded feminists, the media, and Hollywood elitists – doing everything in its power to destroy a honorable man’s life solely to fulfill a backwards political agenda without regret or cessation until America scarcely resembles itself. This is the exact type of moral ambivalence, mob mentality, that allowed the most notorious totalitarian regimes in history to rise amidst the social justice facade of Communism and Democratic Socialism.
Just so we’re clear, an overwhelming majority of the progressive establishment, media, and Democratic Party now believes nearly all Republican candidates and conservative judges are racist, sexist, homophobic bigots who at some time or another have sexually harassed, beaten or raped a woman. America has officially become a propaganda state of gutter politics where civic duty – rational thought, due process, tolerance and decorum – is being systematically dismantled beneath the comforting lie of “love and progress”. Liberty, a Constitutional democracy of inalienable rights, cannot survive in a perpetual vacuum of hostile inquisition where the wrongfully accused are somehow judged by the very conspirators concealing and distorting the truth to demand submission to an archaic agenda based upon unilateral rule. Likewise, “We the People” cannot coexist in a decaying banana republic where the rewarded ploys of false accusation successfully substitute paranoia and hate for justice and mutual respect. When the simplest, most routine matters descend into a scorched earth campaign of personal destruction, civility is always the first casualty of war. The more partisan identity zealots defame and demonize intellectual dissension regardless of the consequences or the means, the further America fades into the obscurity of historical infamy.
Honestly, what are the chances the same woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of drunken misconduct from over 36 years ago, just happened to be the daughter of the two parents who had a foreclosure case adjudicated by Kavanaugh’s mother in 1996? Please. I’m guessing Christine Blasey’s Democratic affiliation, signature on a petition opposing Trump’s border wall and pink, crocheted vagina hat are all just completely unrelated coincidences of non-political activism? Why else would such a credible and “traumatized” individual who truly had no ulterior motives suddenly find a need to scrub all her militant “resistance” posts off her social media accounts? Oh, and by the way, her brother also just happened to work for a law firm, Baker Hostetler, that represents Fusion GPS: the same research firm that eagerly produced the infamous “fake dossier” used to wrongfully obtain FISA warrants against the Trump administration. Who knew being a “victim” encompassed such an endless array of harmless, courageous and completely unrelated coincidences?
If Senator Feinstein was truly concerned about the well-being of a “self-proclaimed” harassment victim rather than launching a last ditch, partisan effort to derail a surefire Supreme Court confirmation by slandering an honorable man’s life work and reputation, then why didn’t the California feminist bring this matter to our attention months ago when she first received the letter? Intent is everything. Those elected civil servants suggesting a highly-suspect allegations with zero corroborative evidence should somehow nullify a man’s career body of work and impeccable reputation are no longer representing America, truth or the Constitutional ideal of due process. Rather, they are symptomatic of a progressive cancer sacrificing ideological diversity, duty, and the dying institution of integrity solely to appease the malicious schemes of liberal fascists.
A little FYI on the Hail Mary “unproven sexual allegations” playbook once again being employed by Democrats to tarnish an honorable man’s legacy based solely on partisan objection to his personal convictions.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, donated money to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and Friends Of Bernie Sanders. She is currently employed as a Social Work professor at Cal State Fullerton where former students have characterized her behavior as unbearable, unfiltered and belligerent.
Sorry but I’d be much more likely to believe this nonsense if details were shared much earlier, i.e., over 30 years ago during high school or even when he was originally confirmed as a Federal Judge, or if a known registered Republican/conservative was the accuser. It’s a well known fact nearly a dozen accusers were recruited just weeks before the 2016 election, all represented by the progressive provocateur Gloria Allred, with a number being compensated by Democratic backers in exchange for publicly making their salacious claims. Considering 65 of Mr. Kavanaugh’s former female classmates/peers voluntarily attested to his character and treatment of women, excuse me while I reject yet another orchestrated attempt to smear a man’s reputation and life’s work in the kangaroo court of public opinion.
These medieval tactics and malicious accusations, which are now casually dispersed at every opportune moment, are an insult to the actual victims of sexual harassment, assault or rape who had to overcome the physical and mental trauma of their harrowing ordeals, not to mention the fear of being unfairly dismissed by police due to the fabricated fairytales of shameless opportunists like Christine Ford.
I’ve heard multiple reports that Sarah Jeong – the South Korean born, anti-American journalist recently hired by the New York Times – is the likely source for the infamous Op-Ed piece supposedly written by a White House insider claiming Trump’s Senior Staff was imploding from within and actively sabotaging his policies. For those who remember, she is the same vile bigot exposed for authoring countless tweets disparaging Anglo-Saxons and even advocating the genocide of all white men. Being Ms. Jeong was completely unapologetic for her previous epithets, indefensible racist barbs that would have resulted in the termination of almost any other employee, this type of vindictive behavior would definitely fit the M.O. of a bitter and remorseless narcissist. If this information ultimately proves to be true, she unequivocally needs to be fired and prosecuted alongside the New York Times for sedition, libelous intent, and treason. Sadly, the once universal feelings of disgust expressed towards these egregious crimes have become little more than cautionary tales or even perceived badges of honor in modern American society.
If Senator Feinstein and the DNC propaganda machine had the slightest inkling any possible incident of sexual misconduct existed concerning Brett Kavanaugh, they would have immediately torpedoed his chances from the very onset of his nomination. And now, during the eleventh hour of his virtually guaranteed confirmation, how convenient it must be for their corrupt crusader – the same feckless bureaucrat who endangered classified information and the identity of foreign agents by employing a Chinese spy for over 20 years – to magically submit an “anonymous” letter alleging high school misbehavior to the FBI. In other words, who needs accountability when your sworn enemies can any conjure any former high school classmate, who may or may not have existed, to vaguely recollect non-descript allegations of harassment from over 30 years ago without ever having had to provide evidence, file an official police report or to answer questions regarding personal motives; perhaps to deviously delay a slam dunk confirmation for further evaluation until after the election. If sending out thousands of misleading inquiries to anyone who may have known, sat by or disagreed with Judge Kavanaugh is now the honorable benchmark of credibility, allow me to introduce the most acceptable form of political assassination or “justifiable” homicide over Clarence Thomas decrying an imaginary pubic hair on his Coke. Oh, the injustice; naturally withstanding the current depravity of celebrated Hollywood entertainment and taxpayer-settled lawsuits of Congressional sexual trysts.
Until there are real consequences for those who perpetrate these obviously politically-motivated stunts, any libelous/slanderous accusation regarding unproven sexual impropriety will equate to an immediate conviction in the court of public opinion. Attempting to wrongfully destroy a man’s reputation, his life’s work and his family’s future over ordinary differences in political ideology is indicative of America’s soulless rejection of common decency for the blind obsession of partisan supremacy. The prescribed constitutional duties of our elected officials, which deal with complex matters of the utmost importance, were never meant to become the private playpens of parading deviants and pardoned conspirators. They were designed to protect the people from their sordid ranks. As long as these disgraceful tactics are given immediate validity by colluding media puppets instead of universally discouraged with stern penalties, the mere utterance of malicious assertions will essentially displace any need for due process or any moral semblance of “beyond a reasonable doubt”. “We the People” of a free, civilized society cannot coexist with an increasingly detached faction that incessantly seeks our submission, humiliation or destruction by any means necessary and without a hint of conscious restraint.
A brief recap illustrating just how juvenile and absurd the Senate Confirmation Hearings have become….
Judge Kavanaugh, are you a proud misogynist who beats his wife with plastic straws and believes a woman’s place is barefoot in the kitchen just so you can eat restaurant quality sandwiches at a discounted price?
Have you ever lied, cursed, or shouted in anger? Was the object of your Republican hatred a minority, a foreign exchange student or a homosexual coworker attempting to cast a vote?
Have you apologized for slavery, are you still an active member of the KKK, and what legal concessions are you prepared to make for mass racial injustice in this country due to the institutionalized racism of your founding fathers?
Does your religious extremism claim dominion over a woman’s uterus because you worship the Virgin Mary rather than having an unsafe sexual affair with Stormy Daniels?
What was your role in Russian election collusion and have you surrendered your bank records, Rocky IV DVD and Christmas card mailing list to Robert Mueller?
If confirmed, you will be personally responsible for every gun-related mass murder in America and for perpetrating the political myth the Second Amendment ensures the people’s right to bear arms and practice self-defense.
Will you continue to separate and abuse helpless children at the border under the guise of combatting human trafficking, gang activity and protecting America from the so-called dangers of illegal immigration, instead of simply freeing their innocent parents who are victims of Anglo-Saxon imperialism and therefore immune to your white supremacist laws?
Exactly at what point in law school were you forced to pledge allegiance to Donald Trump, instead of swearing an oath to defend the same Constitution our conspiring ranks allowed Barack Obama to disregard with unconscionable regularity?
Have you ever eaten gluten, bought meat from a slaughtered animal, or laughed at an inappropriate joke?
How can you possibly comprehend, let alone preserve LGBT rights without cross-dressing, using the “women’s” restroom or randomly meeting a strange man in an adult theater?
Do you know how to spell the “N” word and why?
Have you even seen a nude photo of a woman without her permission? Did you ask her mom?
Do you actually believe your education, consistent judicial record, unswerving ability to uphold the law, and unrivaled ABA rating make you qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice?
Oscar the Grouch lives in a damn trashcan while you waste thousands of dollars on baseball memorabilia and Washington Nationals game tickets. How do you sleep at night?
You do realize we’re mentally-deranged clowns masquerading as grown adults, elected civil servants entrusted with the most consequential decisions of this country, using blind rage, smug condescension and slanderous insinuations to distract from the irrefutable fact your confirmation would be a slam dunk in any other semi-sane era?
