Monty Python Time in Loony Lefty Minneapolis

TROUBLE IN DYSTOPIA, CONT’D

by Scott Johnson  at PowerLine:

.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and “American Indian leaders” met yesterday with denizens of the open air drug den cum encampment on Hiawatha Avenue at Cedar just outside downtown Minneapolis. The Star Tribune reports that the meeting was “hastily called in response to complaints of harassment and intimidation of humanitarian aid workers at the large homeless camp in south Minneapolis.” Also in attendance was the harassment/intimidation crew from Natives Against Heroin.

We’ve got trouble right here in river city. The trouble is attributable in part to idiotic municipal authorities and to the culture of lawlessness they have abetted.

In this installment of the saga, we have the mayor begging for good behavior. We have Indian leaders from four reservations sitting at a large round table “with the smell of burnt sage” in the air. At least we think it was sage.

Convicted drug dealer/burglar/thief and American Indian Movement cofounder Clyde Bellecourt was in attendance. The Star Tribune reports that he “shared decades of experience advocating for American Indian rights.” The Star Tribune omits any mention of Bellecourt’s criminal history or his possible role in the murder of American Indian Movement member Anna Mae Aquash in 1975. See Mike Mosedale’s City Pages story “Bury My Heart” (more here).

The meeting did not go down as the mayor must have hoped. The Star Tribune has done its best to put a smily face on the drug den ever since it initiated coverage of the encampment, yet it gives up here: “Discord permeated the gathering and emotions ran high, despite a few positive moments.”

Despite the burning of sage to dispel the negativity. And despite the group of women who “raised their voices in prayer to calm the room” whenever discussions became too “combative,” as the Star Tribune puts it.

The Star Tribune story concludes on a philosophical note:

A point of contention was whether Indians who are homeless should receive priority, being allowed to move into the large heated tents and receive other services before non-Indians.

Some argued that the ethnicity of those getting help wasn’t important.

Others, like White Earth Nation member Dawn LaRoque, said she hoped Indians would receive aid first. LaRoque also brought up safety at the navigation center, including whether people will still be able to use drugs there.

Frey said residents wouldn’t be tested for drugs upon admittance, but that they couldn’t do drugs on site.

A new idea emerged from discussions: creating a space where people could share disagreements in front of a neutral third party. Frey said it was an excellent idea.

Sam Strong, tribal secretary of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa, said the camp had already spurred change simply by forcing officials to address homelessness head-on.

“There’s hope in that facility that we have over there,” Strong said. “When has anybody ever done anything for homeless people?”

In this installment of the saga we have elements of comedy begging for satire. Sam Strong’s concluding question awaits its Monty Python moment.

The Arrival of Feminazi, Kamala Harris, on the American Left Wing Stage

A DEMOCRATIC CONTENDER SHOWS HER STUFF

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine

California Senator Kamala Harris is running for President, so a committee hearing is for her a sort of audition. Earlier today, Ronald Vitiello, President Trump’s nominee to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, had a confirmation hearing before the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, of which Harris is a member. Harris used her time to suggest an equivalence between ICE and the Ku Klux Klan, which Vitiello emphatically rejected.

This video captures the exchange:

Embedded video

Ryan Saavedra

@RealSaavedra

Democrat Senator Kamala Harris compares ICE to the KKK and appears to suggest that they are a terrorist group during a Senate hearing to consider the nomination of Ronald Vitello to be the director of ICE.

51% of ICE agents were Hispanic or Latino at the end of fiscal year 2016.

Three observations:

1) The asserted parallel between ICE and the KKK is both contemptible and absurd. But this, apparently, is what the Democratic Party’s base wants to hear.

2) Notice how Harris begins by equating the KKK and ICE, but then backs away and concludes by asking Vitiello a completely different and more innocuous question, pretending that it was the same one she started with.

3) Have you ever seen anyone as smug as Kamala Harris? Well, yes, on reflection: Harris is the California version of Hillary Clinton. Go ahead, Dems–nominate her!

Aussie Foreigners at Fox Join Forces with Fascistic Mouthed Jim Acosta?!!

One America News Chief: We’re Standing With Trump Against Jim Acosta, Not With CNN Like Fox News Is

by Allahpundit  at HotAir:

We love you more, Mr. President. It’s a sensible pitch as OAN grasps for ways to cut into the Fox behemoth’s market share. But Fox’s decision to stand with Acosta is sensible too. If in fact Trump wins in court and gains the power to exclude particular reporters from White House events, liberals will want the next Democratic president to make use of that power too. And we all know who the prime target will be, and it won’t be OAN. Fox was targeted years ago for exclusion from interviews with the Obama administration, as Ed noted a few days ago; only because CNN and other networks hung with them in objecting did Team O finally relent. Siding with CNN again now is Fox’s way of taking out a little insurance just in case President Kamala Harris decides that FNC is too evil or whatever to be allowed into her briefings. They’re scratching Acosta’s back today so that CNN will scratch theirs tomorrow.

No doubt Herring has also been paying attention to the fact that Fox has put a little daylight between itself and the president lately. Emphasis on “a little.”

But the network has made several moves in recent weeks to distance itself. Fox News was quick to condemn the two hosts for appearing to campaign with Trump, especially after Hannity had pledged to not take the stage with the president.

“FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement at the time. “This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.”

And earlier this month, Fox News pulled an immigration ad put out by the White House, which other networks had labeled as racist. Nonetheless, the network’s coverage of immigration still tended to align with Trump’s interests — Fox News devoted significant air time to a caravan of migrants heading through Mexico in hopes of seeking asylum in the U.S.

If I know my president, he’ll be delighted at an opportunity to play Fox off of OAN and vice versa for more flattering coverage from both. Supposedly he used to enjoy watching underlings at the Trump Organization vie with each other for dominance; the same dynamic played out for awhile during the 2016 campaign when Corey Lewandowski and his loyalists battled Paul Manafort and his team for control of the Trump train. Now Trump has OAN seizing the Acosta dust-up to declare itself the one true Trump News Network. POTUS will probably reward them with some sort of extended interview, or much more frequent interviews, if only to remind Fox that he’s capable of singlehandedly elevating OAN as a serious rival to them if they wander too far off the reservation. If you think primetime on FNC is pro-Trump now, check back this spring and see what it looks like.

Speaking of which, this can’t be true, can it? Since when does Trump show contempt for his biggest sycophants?

https://hotair.com/archives/2018/11/15/one-america-news-chief-standing-trump-jim-acosta-not-cnn-like-fox-news/

Any President should, must have the right to ban from his news gatherings  obnoxious, rude,  insulting, lying, Hitlerian, fascistic mouthies like Jim Acosta who spend energy and precious time selling falsehoods TO THEIR FELLOW FASCISTS as news to CNN, MSNBC, CBS, PBS, ABC and the Rinos at Fox News to smear the President.

FEDERAL JUDGE RULES WHITE HOUSE MUST RETURN PRESS PASS TO   OBNOXIOUS, ARROGANT, FOUL, FASCIST-BEHAVING, PSYCHO CASE  JIM ACOSTA  FOR NOW!     Please read the  article below for the reason….

The Fickled and the Fixed in Leftist’s Political World

LOOSE ENDS (53)

by Steven Hayward  at PowerLine:

 

 Elizabeth Warren is the gift that keeps on giving:

 But running a close second is this theme from the left, as is expressed in this tweet by a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin:

You can see why political “science” is in such trouble these days. Law professor David Bernstein makes quick work of this stupidity:

Though I have to say, runner-up in the stupid tweet-take department has to be this one:

Remind me again who the Hispanic candidate was in that race? Oh yeah . . . the guy named Cruz. The other guy was whiter than the inside of a snowball. Oh, and how do you “beard” an argument? Is this some kind of new hipster talent I haven’t heard of?

 Echoing what I said yesterday about how environmental initiatives mostly failed at the ballot Tuesday, Tyler Cowan writes that the carbon tax is dead:

Often the most important results of any election come in the initiatives and referendums. And one striking result from Tuesday’s election is that voters in Washington state, a Democratic stronghold, soundly rejected a proposed carbon tax by a margin of 56 to 44 percent. This raises the prospect that the carbon tax may be dead as a policy for the time being, including at the state level. As my Bloomberg Opinion colleague Liam Denning writes“We can debate the magnitude of the vaunted blue wave, but there was definitely no green wave.” . . .

I don’t view the unpopularity of the carbon tax as merely reflecting the influence of special interests. The American people apparently feel that government ought to be able to solve this problem without imposing a new tax burden on them.

For all the talk about disillusionment and cynicism in American politics, this view represents a strange kind of optimism. If this issue really is so important,some voters must be thinking, surely you politicians can find a way to solve it without making us pay for everything. Don’t we give you enough money already?

Economists should not give up our analytical arguments for a carbon tax. But maybe it’s time for a change in tactics. These new approaches might start with the notion that we can address climate change without transferring more money from voters to politicians.

I like Tyler’s work a lot, but in this last point he is simply naive: raising taxes is the main point for many climatistas. Fixing a crisis without expanding government is no fun at all. I hope Tom Steyer keeps spending millions on behalf of such initiatives. Someday he’ll run out of money.

Note:  In my lifetime here in Minnesota about 70% of America’s  Jewish voters have without fail  been  “religiously” glued to the Democrat Party regardless of the decade or cause.

Last Tuesday  they and their  Democrat party elected a first class antiSemite as the state’s Attorney General.  “Law” Professor David Bernstein has a very Jewish name.

Political Science Professor, Mark Copelovitch’s name is only about 80% Jewish male title.   And then there’s the public Carl Bernstein, George Soros, Bill Kristol,  Charles Schumer, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Dianne Feinstein,  Richard Blumenthal,  used to be Senator Al Franken,  the New York Times and Washington Post and  countless  folks like Joy Behar on and behind television a dime a dozen who blab their hate of President Trump  boldly and religiously.

Thank God for Dennis Prager!!   Where would America be without him, AD 2018?

Save America from the Fascistic Dem Leftists THIS TUESDAY!

2018 looks like a different midterm to me

by Silvio Canto, Jr.   at  American Thinker:By Silvio Canto, Jr.

.

We’ve heard for years about “first midterm blues” — the president losing seats after his election.  Recently, we saw it with President Clinton in 1994 and President Obama in 2010.  We did not see it with President Bush in 2002 but maybe that was an outlier or related to the patriotic reaction after 9/11.

What happens in 2018?  For some time, we’ve been hearing about “the blue wave”. However, in recent days, we are hearing of a GOP enthusiasm boost that could make comparisons to the past useless.

The first obvious sign of a GOP boost is the U.S. Senate.  As of today, Nevada is the only seat that the Democrats could flip.  On the other hand, North Dakota and Missouri look like GOP flips.  Indiana and Montana could flip to the GOP, too.  In a worst case scenario, the GOP could end up with 52, or 55 in a best case scenario.  I won’t mention New Jersey, Michigan, and Florida where a surprise could also bring us a GOP victory.

Over in the House, it appears that the Democrats have the edge today but the election is Tuesday.  I hear from many that there are a lot of close contests. So let’s wait for the voters to answer the question.  Turnout could make a huge difference in many of those close elections.

Another interesting factor is early voting.  It looks as if the GOP is leading, but it’s an uncertain measurement.  At the same time, they say that the GOP is more disciplined to vote on election day.  If so, then the head start on early voting may be a good sign for the GOP.

So what happens on Tuesday?  I think that the experts are missing the fact that 2018 is different.  I agree with Mark Penn that we are navigating in different waters this year.   President Trump is making this midterm about ideas.  He has many and the Democrats have none:

There is no question that President Trump is the most disruptive force in politics today.

The president has torn up every political playbook. His political survival after two years in office is a modern-day miracle, and his polling numbers are even running ahead of where Presidents Obama and Clinton were at this point.

President Trump’s most powerful weapon so far has not been the insult — which he certainly has been willing to use — but the idea.

Yes, what is happening is that Trump is running on ideas and finding that a lot of Americans agree with them.

The Democrats say that President Trump is running on fear about the caravan, for example.  At the same time, they present no idea as to how to deal with it.

On “birthright citizenship”, the Democrats play the fear card.  At the same time, not one is willing to introduce legislation saying that a baby born to a woman without papers should be declared a citizen.

On the economy, Trump has the latest jobs report.  The Democrats have more resistance.

So we will see a clash of waves.  My money is that the GOP wave will be bigger.

Posh Peggy Noonan Writes “How to Find a Good Leader” for Americans in Posh Wall Street Journal

Firstly, it is important to note that Posh Peg and those  countless sniveling  snots like her pontificating about what and who  ignorant America should vote for these days, President, Senator, Congresswoman or whatever  is a Poshess, an elite-ess “laboring” from season to season at the Wall Street Journal.   She often refers to other Poshesses and Poshers, copies of herself,  to bully up her writings to underscore the some  power and range of her understanding of today’s socialist, under-educated feminized America from this particular Journal.

This WSJ is NOT an American journal….but, a WORLD JOURNAL owned by Aussies, otherwise known as socialist Island Brits.   Its concern for a democratic, freedom-loving, honest,  learned, Godfearing America is dead.   The nation is being feminized.  Feelings are far more important that seeking Truth and Problem Solving for a better human future.

After about 25 years of subscription, today’s Friday, November 3, 2018, is my final issue to be sent by mail to my box here in Hopkins area Minnesota.    It has been the only ‘daily’ conservative, even occasional conservative American news press of business  available for honest and Godfearing citizens seeking Truth via news in our daily discourse  during these years….my opinion, of course!  (I am 84, so there aren’t many decades of seeking Truth lying around to help me ‘make my day’!)

I used to be a Democrat…..because I married one in 1957 and wanted to keep our peace.   Unlike today Democrats in operation were civilized and American then.   I have been interested in our nation’s politics since the Presidential election between Tom Dewey and Harry Truman.  My Dad was a Republican, and therefore so was my Mom.   It was the first Presidential election I followed election returns on maps with state outlines.  I used colored pencils, red for Dems and blue for Reps.  (I was rooting for Harry.   He ‘kinda’ looked like my mom’s German dad,  grandfather Herman Danner,  who had died the year before.)

I am not certain what Lady Peggy means by “GOOD” in her “How to Find a Good Leader” article title.   How about “HOW TO FIND A GREAT LEADER?” …..but America, at last, HAS A GREAT LEADER IN WHITE HOUSE, DONALD JOHN TRUMP!!

Donald John Trump is a very bright human male raised by wonderful parents, led by a successful dad whom he adored, respected and whose trade he chose to follow.   That I did know for years…..those years when local urban newspapers were independent from today’s corps of  leftist propaganda  from the politically   corrupt  New York Times and Washington Post  who feed them every day from coast to coast.

Before August 6, 2015 I was a prisoner of the American habit of elevating lawyers fair and fowl to the White House.   I used to teach social studies to urban high school kids in the 1960s.  To this day I still am imprisoned by reading hours of history….whether Aztec or Soviet.  Yet, I had been programmed by habit to believe only lawyers, the most dishonest gang in the human crowd, were qualified to be offered as U.S. Presidential candidate.

It was a boring crowd of Republicans the GOP was offering to America to defeat Crooked Hillary of the billionaire class, that August 6.  It was Donald John Trump Party Gods were trying hard to dump hoping  another Bush could run their show.

That evening was Fox’s turn to dump Trump at the GOP  Presidential “debate”.  After serving candy canes to the rest of the nine or so candidates on stage, Megyn Kelly was preened to ask Candidate Trump about his troubles with women……calling them pigs, etc and etc…she charged.    The Fox GOP camera was already fixed on the victim candidate standing at the microphone as she asked him “Is this the way you feel about all women?”

….and in two seconds answered….”Only Rosie O’Donnell”.   Two-thirds of the Fox Debate audience nearly all who hated Trump as a candidate,  exploded in laughter!

It was that August 6, 2015, that moment I suddenly felt thrilled America had a candidate who could keep that Evil Hillary out of the White House…..and so, I thought, could those Trump haters who laughed so loudly, so approvingly, so truthfully about Dem Rosie.

Donald Trump never changed into different Donald…or a George…or  a Bush.   He remained an American who loved his country and was deeply worried about where it was going….especially after eight years of  leftist trained, Saul Alinsky student, Barack Hussein Obama as President who had promised he would change America forever during his time in office.

Posh Peggy didn’t seem happy Our Donald was defeating Crooked Hillary that wonderful November 8 of AD 2016.   She was starring on CBS that night to opine about the contest as it progressed….not in Hillary’s favor.

Is there a daily newspaper anywhere in America that isn’t propagandized on its news pages from leftist Washington Post, the New York Times, or Los Angeles Times?   Does anyone read the Boston Globe anymore…even in Boston?

About one/third of the 2016 GOP voting crowd turned  William Kristolnacht that voting November 8,  and have never regained consciousness and civility.  I was hoping the Journal’s Peggy Noonan would have been one them.   She is capable of good thought in political writing.

Yes, the President generalizes, exaggerates occasionally…..His enemies, his dislikers like this Posh Peg  pounce on his  syllables, adjectives, absent their snobbery and scenery…..and/or pretend he doesn’t exist and therefore has done nothing to make anyone Proud of America anymore.

I HAVE FOUND A GREAT LEADER FOR AMERICA……IT IS A “HE”…..IT IS DONALD JOHN TRUMP!    (Yet, is there a news industry in this land, America, that provides news from a fair and honest conservative concept in the form of a newspaper?

 

Where Does All That Dem Money Come From?

Democratic Attacks: Who’s Paying?

by Steve Feinstein  at  American Thinker

 

One thing is for sure: the Democrats never give up trying to pull fast ones on their Republican opponents and force them to defend and explain things the Republicans never in a million years thought they’d have to defend and explain.  Recent political history abounds with incidences of political attacks intended to blindside the Republicans, force them off their game, pull them far off message, and generally reset the daily political narrative to language the Democrats prefer.  That these attacks are almost always spectacularly unsuccessful doesn’t dissuade the Democrats from trying again and again.

A notable recent Democratic attempt was Dianne Feinstein’s astonishing 11th-hour, 59th-minute ambush of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with the totally unsubstantiated, embarrassingly vague “charges” of supposed sexual misconduct some unspecified number of years ago by Kavanaugh against one Christine Blasey Ford.  The whole episode was laughable on its face from a legal standpoint: if you gave a Democratic defense lawyer a case in which the accuser couldn’t identify the time or location when and where the incident allegedly took place, couldn’t produce any corroborating witnesses, and demonstrably had lied in her basic story (Ford said she was afraid to fly yet had provably flown on multiple occasions for both personal and professional reasons), the defense lawyer would not merely be giddy with how easily the case could be won with “reasonable doubt,” but would likely go to the judge and ask that the case be dismissed entirely for lack of evidence.  No doubt, the request would be granted.  It was and remains a ludicrous, transparent political ploy of the lowest kind.

The real question is, how did the Ford fandango come to be?  Who put her up to it?  Who paid for the political digging and research?  Who paid for the logistical expenses – the travel involved in cultivating her as a witness, the legal preparations, the food and lodging accrued by everyone during the process?  Are we to believe that Ford came forward totally voluntarily by herself and then funded her own expenses throughout the ordeal?  Did Feinstein’s office pay for everything?  Or did some outside entity concoct the entire thing, find an acceptable accuser with a plausible and suitably unverifiable story, and fund the entire operation behind several layers of completely untraceable money?  It’s incredible that no one is asking.

Similarly, the Honduran caravan seems just too convenient and perfectly timed to be a coincidence, doesn’t it?  All of a sudden, 10,000-plus politically oppressed people just absolutely have to make their way to the U.S. border, right now, just as the midterm elections are upon us.  The Democrats once again have brought forth one of their favored issues: Republican hardheartedness, coldly turning away pregnant women and helpless, undernourished children from a better life in America.  Well, that just isn’t who America is, is it?  Where is the Republicans’ soul?  Where is their basic human decency?  Formal laws can come later.  Court appearances can come later.  Right now, this very moment, it’s time for compassion, generosity, and human kindness.  Just let them in, and everything will get sorted out in due course.  That’s what the Democrats are banking on – that voters will reject the Republicans because of their total lack of basic humanity.  The fact that the general public isn’t buying the Democrats’ message of “The Republicans caused the caravan in the first place with their unwarranted meddling in these countries’ affairs” hasn’t stopped the Democrats from trying to foist it on the public.

The question that seems obvious is, how did this caravan come to be?  Why now?  How do they eat, and who provides for their basic sanitary, transportation, and shelter needs along the path of their valiant, arduous journey?  It’s a long trek.  It ain’t free.  Who’s paying?  Who’s the organizer?  After this particular issue is resolved – one way or the other – there will be another.  The Democrats always try to create a “Republicans are heartless” issue.

And of course, there’s the big one: the whole Russia collusion thing.  There was the dossier paid for by Fusion GPS, for starters.  Where did that money come from?  Was that money backed by the Clintons? Did the funding actually come from shadow money collected by the charitable Clinton Foundation?  If the Democrats spied on and wiretapped the Trump campaign prior to the 2016 election (as appears virtually certain to all but the most vociferous, dishonest deniers and the hopelessly naïve believers), who organized and funded that operation?  It was no easy, one-time task.  To actually spy on and surreptitiously record detailed private conversations is a technically complicated exercise, requiring cutting-edge technology and sensitive inner contacts.  Both of those are expensive propositions.  It can be safely assumed that the requisite monies to fund such an operation are not traceable to the Obama White House, or even obviously to the Clintons.  Then who? How?  By what actual device was it paid for and executed?  Like the Honduran caravan, the wiretapping of candidate Trump and the framing of Carter Page weren’t free, and they weren’t coincidental happenstance occurrences.  They were planned and paid for.  After all this time, expense, and effort, the broad public realizes that there is no “there” there, no so-called collusion, nothing with which to pin blame on Trump and delegitimize his triumph over the increasingly pathetic Hillary Clinton.

All of this frenzied activity by the Democrats to distort the national political dialogue, of course, flies in the face of real Trump-Republican accomplishments – accomplishments that have made the lives of real Americans better on a day-to-day basis.  In eight years of the Obama administration, the Democrats couldn’t do for the American people what President Trump has done in less than two years:

  • GDP growth of 4.2% in Q2 2018, on track for over 3% for calendar 2018.  Obama’s average was 1.8% for his term in office.
  • Black unemployment at an all-time low.  All-time.
  • Hispanic unemployment at an all-time low.  All-time.
  • Persuaded NATO countries to finally step up and pay their share.
  • Withdrew from pointless, job-killing Paris Climate Accords.
  • Restructured NAFTA to benefit American workers.
  • Rebuilding and modernizing American military to better meet our national security needs.

There are countless additional accomplishments by Trump that have tangibly improved the quality of daily life in America.  However, the Obama administration was more interested in imposing their ideological imprint on American society and the economy than they were in actually increasing GDP, median household income or reducing unemployment.  The ultimate maximization of economic, energy and foreign policy factors was never their primary aim. Obama’s main goal was – and the Democrats’ remains – to identify victim groups (real or imagined) and then fabricate government programs to rescue those groups for the purpose of winning votes.  All the Democrats actually want to do is to keep the GDP, household income, unemployment and foreign affairs in good enough shape so as not to become issues in and of themselves.

In order to accomplish this, the Democrats must keep the national conversation away from easily understood, instantly recognizable things like unemployment, national security, and household income.  Voters like it when those things are good, the way they are now.

So Democrats go to great lengths to divert the voters’ attention and shift the conversation, à la the Honduran caravan, the Kavanaugh confirmation process, and the Russian collusion investigation.  There are more Democrat-created diversions to come.  It’s a never-ending integral component of modern-day Democratic political strategy.  The actual success of these hijinks is extremely questionable, and the non-partisan segment of the voting pool is rapidly catching on and discounting them as so much white noise, to be totally disregarded at best or accruing to the Democrats’ detriment at worst.

Nonetheless, the Democrats keep trying, successful or not.  The question remains: who is paying for these?  Someone is.  Will we ever know?
