THE DEMS’ DITSY “SQUAD” REVIEWED

Trump campaign produces brutal video highlighting The Squad’s crazy statements

 

For decades, the Democrats have expertly demonized Republicans and conservatives, making the case that we are too mean, too stupid, too racist, too homophobic, and now too transphobic (among many other failings) to be trusted with power.  Meanwhile, the Republican establishment, including presidential candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney, preferred being gentlemen losers to winning by using the same tactics as the Democrats.

I will remember to my dying day the time when John McCain rebuked the use of Barack Obama’s actual name. From the Feb 28, 2008 New York Times:

 A conservative radio talk show host who helped introduce Senator John McCain before a rally here Tuesday used Senator Barack Obama’s middle name, Hussein, three times, while disparaging him, prompting Mr. McCain to apologize and repudiate the comments afterward.

Bill Cunningham, who hosts “The Big Show” with Bill Cunningham, a local program here that is also syndicated nationally, was part of a line of people lauding Mr. McCain and revving up the crowd before his appearance here before several hundred people at a theater here.)

In contrast, President Trump likes winning, and is not bothered by the fear that someone might consider him vulgar or mean. And as the most successful reality television producer in the history of the medium, he understands how compelling the appearance of craziness can be. It’s not coincidental that he had celebrities like Gary Busey and Meat Loaf as cast members of Celebrity Apprentice.

That’s why his campaign has produced a highly effective and highly shareable two-and-a-half-minute video branding The Squad as “the leaders of the Democrat Party,” using Trump himself and clips of their nuttiness.

NeverTrumpers no doubt find the video abhorrent. Just not nice enough.

President Trump would rather win than please them and their Democrat friends.

American TV Jewish Leftist Pair Sell Fascistic View of Truth Seeking! Try the KHASHOGGI TREATMENT!

Fran Lebowitz To Maher: Maybe The Saudis Can Give Trump The Khashoggi Treatment

.

Another Friday night, another Trump-deranged celebrity wishing physical harm to President Trump. Fran Lebowitz was a guest on Bill Maher’s HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher and she couldn’t hold in check her pure hatred of President Trump. Hey, let’s hope he gets the Khashoggi treatment from the Saudis, she said.

Lebowitz isn’t a young, overwrought liberal in Hollywood. She’s a 68-year-old liberal woman who has seen success as an author and public speaker. Occasionally, she’s an actress. She is thought of as an intellectual by our far-left betters. Her hate-filled remark to Maher, though, caught even him off-guard. Impeachment isn’t enough to appease her, she implied she wants him murdered.

Lebowitz began by saying she felt “plagued” by Trump’s presidency and “shocked” by what she claimed was criminal behavior by Attorney General William Barr over his handling of the Mueller report.

But when she was asked about impeachment, Lebowitz did not think that was enough punishment for the president, who has not been charged with any crimes.

“Certainly, he deserves to be impeached. I mean, impeachment is just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves,” Lebowitz said. “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, ‘We should turn him over to the Saudis, you know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter, you know. Maybe they can do the same for him.’”

She sounds nice. She is referring to Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, and Saudi dissident. It is alleged that Khashoggi was murdered by agents of the Saudi Arabian government in Istanbul during a visit to the Saudi consulate. His body hasn’t been recovered but it is believed by Turkish authorities that Khashoggi was tortured and killed by dismemberment while he was still alive. The studio audience applauded.

That’s sick, even for the Trump-deranged. Imagine being such a callous soul that this kind of off-hand remark filters into a normal conversation about politics and the President of the United States. Removing Trump from office isn’t enough, he should just be murdered.

Brent Baker@BrentHBaker

On HBO’s @RealTimers on Friday night, guest suggested murdering @realDonaldTrump: “We should turn him over to the Saudis, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter. Maybe they could do the same for him.”

Apparently at the time, Maher’s face registered his shock at such a statement. I didn’t watch the show but that is what is being reported. The video clip in the tweet above doesn’t show Maher’s face as she talks. Blowback was swift on social media, though, and the producers of the show stepped in and told Leibowitz about it during the show. So, she did one of those apologies that really isn’t an apology – “I regret everyone misinterpreted it.” She doesn’t regret the remark. She regrets that she was caught and called on it.

“I saw your face when I said it,” she told Maher. “I didn’t realize that I had said it. I had 12 cups of coffee. I regret saying it,” Lebowitz said after the broadcast, during on the online-only ‘Overtime’ segment HBO presents via YouTube.

Embedded video

clarifies her Trump comments

Note that Lebowitz said, “They misinterpret everything. Why should they stop with me?” See, it’s not her fault, really. It’s her critics. It’s just Twitter, you know.

Look, she knew exactly what she was saying to Bill Maher during that conversation. She’s smart, remember. Maher even told the audience that she is the smartest person he knows. The interesting part is that the show’s producers caught it quick enough to ask her to correct her craziness while the show was still being filmed. Plus, how often is Bill Maher shocked by a guest’s remarks? Not often, since he is usually encouraging criticism of Trump. Maher stated the obvious – he doesn’t like President Trump – but no one should want to have physical harminflicted on a president.

“It’s a live show,” Maher sighed. “You don’t really want to see the president dismembered by the Saudis. I don’t like Donald Trump either…NO matter who the president is we do not want physical harm.”

“I did not mean that and I regret saying it,” she said, clarifying, “I regret that everyone misinterpreted it.”

No one misinterpreted her comment. She just got caught taking Trump-derangement to another level. This is the kind of remark that prompts a visit from the Secret Service.

The Collusion Business Enters an End

WSJ Columnist: This Is What’s Being Glossed Over In The Mueller Report On Russian Collusion

by Matt Vespa  at Townhall:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report. The two-year long investigation is over. Over 2,000 subpoenas were issued, 500 witnesses interviewed, and after all that, there is no evidence President Trump, his campaign staff, or the Kremlin colluded to tilt the 2016 election. Half the country knew that, while the other half chose to remain drooling vegetables on this issue. There was no collusion. On obstruction of justice, another moronic Democratic obsession, Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein didn’t see enough evidence to suggest this took place. Maybe…that’s because if this did happen—and I think it didn’t—then Trump did a bad job. He allowed over 2,000 subpoenas and hundreds of witnesses be interviewed by partisan Democratic staffers on Mueller’s staff. Yet, this gives even more weight and credibility to the report, which is why I never liked the bashing of the Mueller probe based on that point. If you were confident that the Russian collusion hysterics were a wild goose chase, then you would want the most anti-Trump people on Mueller’s staff because when that report drops confirming what you had a hunch on, then there’s no ‘well, he or she used to work for Republicans’ talking point bubbling up.

@DonaldJTrumpJr

I never thought I’d see the day where Democrats are visibly upset that the President of The United States DIDN’T collude with the Russians.

Yet, while we all pop champagne over this tremendous political win for the Trump White House and the country, Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel noted that what’s being glossed over with the no collusion reports from the news media is how the Mueller report totally trashes the FBI

“If you are going to investigate a presidential campaign, and on a charge as grave as collusion, and with the heavy-handed tactics the FBI employed–you’d better have a highly convincing reason to act,” tweeted Strassel. “The Mueller report is a judgment that never was any real evidence.”

@KimStrassel

1) On the findings of Mueller’s report. It’s worth recognizing that this is more than an exoneration. It’s a searing indictment of the FBI.

2) If you are going to investigate a presidential campaign, and on a charge as grave as collusion, and with the heavy-handed tactics the FBI employed–you’d better have a highly convincing reason to act. The Mueller report is a judgment that never was any real evidence.

3) The Papadopoulos conversation was always thin gruel. And the Mueller findings now prove the dossier was a fabrication. The country now deserves a full accounting of how the FBI blew this so badly–so that it doesn’t happen again.

4) If Mueller has done his job, he will address some of this. But the real accounting needs to come from a full declassification of FBI/DOJ probe docs. Mueller report is only half the story. Time to go back to the beginning, to how we got a special counsel in first place.

Obama Advertises His ObamaLove for 2018 Midterms

2018 Midterms: All About Obama

by Michelle Malkin
Former President Selfie Stick is back in action, firing up Democrats before the midterms with his signature rallying cries:

I, I, I, I! Me, me, me! My, my, my!

According to a tally by The American Mirror’s Kyle Olson, Barack Obama’s campaign speech Monday for Nevada Senate Democratic candidate Jacky Rosen referred to himself 92 times in 38 minutes — or an average self-allusion every 24.7 seconds.

When he wasn’t “I”-ing, the former narcissist-in-chief was lying.

“Unlike some, I actually try to state facts,” Obama snarked passive-aggressively in a swipe at President Donald Trump. “I don’t believe in just making stuff up. I think you should actually say to people what’s true.”

Sit down, Mister “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Thanks to you, my husband, children and I lost not one, not two, not three but four private individual market health plans killed directly by Obamacare. Reminder: When the health insurance cancellation notice tsunami hit in 2013, liberal Mother Jones magazine sneered that the phenomenon was “phony.” But after 4 million American families received cancellation letters at the end of 2013, Obama’s health care prevarication was finally deemed the “Lie of the Year” by left-leaning PolitiFact.

And five years after promising Americans they could “keep their doctor” along with their health plan “no matter what,” Obama belatedly ‘fessed up that “the average person” would be forced “to have to make some choices, and they might end up having to switch doctors.”

Facts, schmacts.

Moving on, Obama tried to galvanize voters this week by trashing Trump’s jobs boom: “When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it.”

Hold up, Mister “Jobs are not coming back.” I remember you taunting Trump for needing a “magic wand” to achieve what you claimed was an unachievable manufacturing industry renaissance — for which you are now claiming unadulterated credit!

I remember you, Mister Multitrillion-Dollar-Stimulus, promising the sun, moon and stars with the “most sweeping economic recovery package in our history” that was supposed to lift two million people out of poverty.

I recall sky-high unemployment rates for black Americans, nearly double the national rate, and 90 million-plus able-bodied citizens of all colors simply giving up looking for work while wasted billions went to fund crony green energy boondoggles, bridges to nowhere, renovations to Joe Biden’s favorite Amtrak train station in Delaware, General Services Administrations junkets in Las Vegas and Hawaii, ghost congressional districts and stimulus propaganda road signs planted nationwide and stamped with the shovel-ready logo.

Speaking of which, I won’t forget you smirking while you admitted at one of your phony Jobs and Competitiveness Council meetings that “Shovel-ready was not as, uh, shovel-ready as we expected.” Yukkity-yuk-yuk.

Nor will it go down the memory hole how the Obama administration’s wreckovery lies were enabled by slavering “journalists” like New York Times columnist David Brooks. He giggled on Jim Lehrer’s PBS show that Obama had told him off the record that the shovel-ready promise was a crock, yet he sat on the truth until his Times’ colleague Peter Baker reported the admission more than a year later.

Wait, we’re not done yet. Astonishingly, Obama is now on the campaign trail comparing the Trump White House to a “tin-pot dictatorship” and calling for a return to “decency” and “lawfulness.”

Yes, this is the same man who sicced the IRS on tea party conservatives, evangelicals and pro-life citizens, amnestied millions of illegal immigrants through executive fiat, appointed dozens of unaccountable and unvetted policy czars, used his Justice Department to spy on journalists, deceived the country over the Benghazi massacre and the Iran deal, demonized his political opponents, and mastered the very social justice agitation techniques now wielded by left-wing mobs targeting Republicans in every corner of the public square.

Thanks, Obama, for reminding America of your miserable legacy of deceit, division, persecution and redistribution as voters head to the polls. You wanna make the 2018 midterms all about you? It’s on.

MN Man, John Hinderaker, Visits the Minnesota State Fair

AN ENCOURAGING AFTERNOON AT THE FAIR

Today, I spent the afternoon at the Minnesota State Fair. I was on the radio for 2 1/2 hours with my friends Ed Morrissey and Lee Michaels of AM 1280 the Patriot. Minnesota’s State Fair is one of the world’s great events. Even the New York Times, which is rarely right about anything, has acknowledged as much.

If you have never been to the Minnesota State Fair, photos accompany the Times story. Like this, for example:

Which gives you some idea. Today I was probably the only Fairgoer dressed in a coat and tie and carrying a briefcase. What can I say? I was coming from my office and was on company time.

All Minnesota politicians work the Fair. (It was at the Fair that Al Franken encountered one or more of his #MeToo women.) It is a unique opportunity to talk with a broad cross-section of Minnesotans–Americans, that is–and learn what is on their minds. Today at the Patriot booth, we interviewed my Congressman, Jason Lewis, who is running for re-election in a bellwether swing district; Doug Wardlow, the Republican who is running against Keith Ellison for Attorney General; and Karin Housley, the Senate candidate who I think may score a major win for the GOP.

These candidates’ comments on their State Fair experiences were strikingly similar. They all noted the yawning chasm between the “news” as reported on cable TV stations and in the liberal media, and the concerns expressed by State Fairgoers. No one cares about Paul Manafort. No one cares about Amaroso, or whatever her name is. Everyone knows taxes have been cut, and everyone knows the economy has taken off. There is massive support for continuing the policies of the Trump administration. Impeachment? No one is talking about it, but the last thing voters want is to derail the successes of the last year and a half.

In my opinion, Minnesota State Fairgoers are as good a cross-section of American voters as you can find. And, despite the old-time roots music at the Farmers Union booth–the Farmers Union still exists, apparently–and a pretty darn good 60s band at the AFL-CIO booth, it doesn’t appear that many Minnesotans are buying what the far Left is selling. That is probably a pretty good microcosm of American voters.

I am very much tuned into this, since I have been invited to testify before the Joint Economic Committee of Congress next Thursday, a week from tomorrow, on the effects of the Trump tax cuts on Minnesota’s economy. Those effects have been positive, to say the least. I think voters across America, not just in Minnesota, have noticed. I will have more to say about my Joint Economic Committee appearance in due course.

To wrap up, here is a photo of me with Karin Housley following our interview. I told her I would only post it on my family’s chat line. Sorry, Karin, I changed my mind:

Karin Housley is one of the nicest and most hard-working people I have met in politics, and she is a solid conservative. You can help her by going here to donate. She represents a real opportunity for a Senate pickup. Trust me on this one.

Similarly, my friend Jason Lewis is in a tight re-election race in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District. He won in 2016 by 1.7%, and the Democrats are running the same candidate, lesbian activist Angie Craig, this time. If Republicans carry districts like Minnesota’s 2nd, we will hold the House. If not, we won’t. Jason is a long-time talk radio host and both a principled and a practical conservative–the sort of person we need more of in Washington. You can contribute to his campaign here. Again, I vouch for Jason as a worthy conservative candidate who won’t go swamp on us, and whose seat is vital to maintaining control of the House.

Finally, if you don’t want a Nation of Islam has-been; an abolish-ICE, sanctuary state, no-borders leftist; a multiple domestic abuser; and a life-long advocate for cop-killers elected Attorney General of Minnesota, where his entire agenda will be bedeviling the Trump administration, not enforcing the laws–many of which he is opposed to and has pledged to disregard–go here to contribute to Doug Wardlow’s campaign. Doug is a good guy and the alternative to a truly dark future for Minnesota law enforcement.

When I watch cable news, I get depressed. When I spend an afternoon at the State Fair, I think there is still hope. Let’s make it happen!

The fascistic Democrat Leftists  even in Minnesota, keep preaching, rioting, falsely reporting that   Trumpees, both white and black, are evil racists.   A lot of Viking Trumpees participated in the Minnesota Miracle celebration pictured below….at the stadium and at their homes…..Can you tell who they are?

 

Normal Girls, NOT the Lefty Strained, Play Dolls by Nature

THE OBAMA COMFORT DOLL ISN’T THE WORST OF IT

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

I’m a day late with this, so you likely have already seen it: Jill Abramson, former Executive Editor of the New York Times, told the Guardian that she keeps a Barack Obama doll in her purse and calls on it for comfort in the distressing Age of Trump:

It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America.

OK, that’s pretty funny. But the rest of Abramson’s column strikes me as more significant. Why? Because she makes no pretense of being anything other than a Democratic Party operative. Writing for the Guardian’s far-left audience, she is among friends. Any pretense of objectivity is gone.

Abramson’s main subject is the Democratic Party’s hope for a win in the midterm elections. She focuses on Texas, which I wrote about here:

With new Democratic voters racing to the polls in big numbers in Tuesday’s primaries, Texas is looking purple rather than Republican red. …

Though their optimism may be premature, national Democrats think Ted Cruz can be defeated in November by a well-funded liberal House member from El Paso with the name of Beto O’Rourke, who just won his state’s Democratic Senate nomination.

Abramson exults over the Texas primary, but somehow omits to mention that Cruz drew a half million more votes than O’Rourke, even though he faced no perceptible opposition. Still, Abramson is triumphant:

Republican gloom in Washington DC is palpable, with White House chaos, Donald Trump’s sinking approval ratings and incumbent retirements piling up.

Though winning control of the House of Representatives in 2018 is their focus, my Democratic sources say that there are already 20 credible presidential challengers giving serious thought to opposing Donald Trump in 2020. The list, unsurprisingly, includes a raft of Democratic senators, and, perhaps surprisingly, at least three strong women, New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand, Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar and Massachusetts’s Elizabeth Warren.

The Democratic Party cheerleading goes on and on. This is the piece’s conclusion, but for the part about the Obama doll:

Of course, there are months to go until November and Beto [O’Rourke] has to be considered an underdog. Still, it’s thrilling to see signs of a Trump rebellion building in the Solid South, the Republican base where religion, racism and love of guns have advantaged Republicans since Richard Nixon’s election in 1968.

Here’s my point: Abramson hates Republicans (“racism!”) and is an unapologetic Obama (and O’Rourke, and Warren, and Gillebrand, etc.) fangirl. But that didn’t begin recently. Abramson was Executive Editor of the Times from 2011 to 2014, after spending pretty much her whole career there. (Nothing if not loyal, she even has a tattoo of the Times logo.) She is out of the closet now, especially, perhaps, when writing for the Guardian. But is there any reason to think that she ran the Times’s newsroom as anything but a Democratic Party operative? No. In fact, those who read the Times during her years at the helm can attest that the paper shared her enthusiasms as well as her hatreds.

Still: I am not easily shocked, but I do think that Abramson’s out-of-the-closet turn as a doll-carrying Obama Democrat is disturbing.”

ghr..Comment:   No matter how hard  I try, I cannot imagine Hillary  Clinton EVER playing dolls at any age.   She could have collected snakes for fun….. Perhaps husband Bill noticed that early in his age with the Hill.

Trump Rallies Support for Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania

I attended our GOP State Senate District Convention Call yesterday  morning.   Republicans where I live in a western suburb of Minneapolis  haven’t quite managed to run an orderly, inspiring  meeting for years.

Crooked Hillary easily gobbled up  Hennepin County in 2016 which includes Black Racist and Super Feminist Minneapolis, St. Louis Park, Brooklyn Park, Bloomington, and the Minnetonka where I live.    Most of the wealthy and Big Business super wealthy  of this Goopher land America buy enough leftist Democrats to own  the state and most of  its U.S. Congressional Districts politically.

Yet, OUR DONALD nearly beat Crooked Hillary here in 2016.   Our Minnesota was either THE very last STATE or the second to the last STATE to declare a winner that Presidential election year the tally was so close.   Donald won all but 9 of Gopherland’s  87 counties.     Minnetonka folks, however,  preferred  liar Hillary  big time .

And then there is our  fascist GOOGLE speech control police who,  according to reports from many circles, make conservative sentences and paragraphs, even entire articles they disagree with disappear from these pages if deemed sufficiently unObamaloving.

Our Dennis Prager has recently challenged National Google’s Fascism habits  in a national court case.

February 22, 1980…..That Miracle of American Sports! USA 4 USSR 3

 

More than half of the members of the 1980 American Olympic hockey team,  perhaps 14 players in all, were raised in, or learned their hockey  from my own state of Minnesota.

Wintertime between 1955 to 1965 I attended over 300 Minnesota high school hockey games.  I was the state high school boy  hockey ratings guy for the Sunday St. Paul Pioneer Press.    Roseau, Thief River Falls,  International Falls, Duluth East, Grand Rapids,  Eveleth, St. Paul Johnson, Minneapolis Roosevelt, Edina  were the hockey powerhouses perennially  leading  the ratings from 1947 through the 1960s.    St. Paul Johnson was THE hockey powerhouse  from the Twin City in  those days…..winning State championships in 1947, 1953, 1955,  and 1963.

Herbie Brooks starred at  St. Paul Johnson High School leading the school into  two state tournament victories,  1953 to 1955.  He was an awkward skater from hip to ankles, rather slow in the speed,  yet he starred because he was a star.   He was so clever on the attack with the puck under his control, spectators and competing players often seemed to  fell  he could ‘deek’ the goal posts.

In all of the twenty or more years attending Minnesota  High School  State Tournaments, I never saw a player who could out maneuver a defender as easily at this kid.   Herbie Brooks was a genius with the puck at the end of his hockey stick…..clever player who loved the game, a winner, who had a brain far more skilled than his legs.   HE WAS A WINNER by drive and  because of that brain!

(I think Herbie actually  majored in psychology while at the University of Minnesota, back then when the University really meant something in learnings.   This Herbie was focused that 1979-1980!)

I was not surprised that Herbie decided to play the Olympic Soviet team  (for practice) a couple weeks before the Olympic games began, losing 10-3,  at Madison Square Garden!   I was not surprised he’d work the blood out of his Olympic team players whether they liked it or not, during every practice until the Olympic competitions began.  I was not at all surprised that his superbly-coached team had managed to remain  undefeated by the time they had to play the Soviets.

Herbie was in charge!

Minnesota boy high school players in the 1980s were becoming more spoiled in their athletic surroundings than in the years gone by.  They didn’t have to play critical outdoor games in minus 15 degree temperatures any more……such as a critical  outdoor game  I watched in Roseau when the team  played St. Paul Johnson one January.

Mark Johnson blood came from Minnesota.   I knew his dad, Bob Johnson quite well.  ….a First Class Guy, if there ever was one!  He was a star coach at Minneapolis Roosevelt….and a ‘side kick’ of mine when we took graduate school classes together in the College of Education at the University of Minnesota before he came to coach hockey at the University of Wisconsin.

Herbie Brooks was a  genius coaching at that level at  that time to that Olympic victory that year, AD 1980!  It was made to be by our Creator!  His young, rather spoiled youthful team was tortured into mental, physical strength into  resolution and  endurance throughout those many  months of practice leading up to that Miracle on Ice……Team USA  was a much stronger, better balanced USA hockey team playing the Soviets during the last fifteen minutes than the first 45!   Take a look below during that third period following the Eruzione go-ahead  goal with ten minutes left!
