Don’t Take the Bait

Posted Posted in American Greatness, Liz Sheld, Politics, Twitter

Fine words from Liz Sheld over at American Greatness.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has threatened the Vice President, demanding he invoke the 25th Amendment within 24 hours to remove Trump or this week, the House of Representatives will begin impeachment proceedings against the president. He only has 8 days left in office. If you are in financial distress because your business/job was destroyed during the virus lockdowns and your kids have gone uneducated for 8 months well, sorry Charlie, that’s just not a priority for the Democrats. The purpose of the impeachment is two-fold. First, to escalate the current heated political climate so the Trump supporters will act out and they will gain more momentum for whatever draconian measures and punishment they hope to execute. Don’t take the bait. Please. And secondarily, to humiliate and demoralize the left’s political opposition. Also, don’t take the bait.

Over the weekend, the tech oligarchs enacted a wholesale purge of WRONGTHINKERS from their platforms under the guise of public safety. And why wouldn’t they? Their desire to purify the public “discourse” has never been hidden, and with the loss of the Georgia senate races, there was no possibility there would be unfavorable regulation coming their way. So here we are. Trump has been memory-holed from the major social media platforms and other undesirables have disappeared along with him. Take this opportunity to review your own internet and social media use and decide wisely where you want to direct your effort and support. If you thought the tech oligarchs would be satisfied to remove perceived enemies from their own houses, think again. Amazon has unpersoned its customer Parler who uses its web services. Once more, be mindful about where you spend your money and look into supporting smaller businesses to serve your needs.

Obama Era Abuses: Who Is Kevin Clinesmith?

Posted Posted in Barack Obama, Kevin Clinesmith, Politics

Even after the collapse of the collusion thesis, good luck getting the press corps interested in allegations of Obama-era abuse.

It was an almost unbelievable story—fit for a spy novel, and among the most disturbing and consequential allegations of governmental abuse in recent history. The alleged abuse went right to the heart of our ability to participate in free and fair elections. But much of the U.S. media seems ready to forget about it.

On December 9 Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz reported that a critical piece of evidence used to obtain a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign associate in 2016 was falsified by an FBI lawyer.

Even before the release of the report, the New York Times had the scoop in November but buried it under a headline which suggested a sort of vindication for the FBI: “Russia Inquiry Review Is Said to Criticize F.B.I. but Rebuff Claims of Biased Acts; A watchdog report will portray the pursuit of a wiretap of an ex-Trump adviser as sloppy, but it also debunks some accusations by Trump allies of F.B.I. wrongdoing.”

The investigations are not finished…..

Video: John McCain and the JERK Factor

Posted Posted in Illegal Immigration, Immigration, John McCain

You remember the FLAP with John McCain getting testy with Arizona constituents over questioning him on his Senate Gang of 8 immigration amnesty?

During the town hall, Senator McCain called a voter a JERK.

The above video is McCain at a subsequent being asked about the jerk comment.

One day after a confrontation at a town hall meeting in Sun Lakes, Senator John McCain held another town hall in Phoenix.
On Tuesday, an audience member of the town hall meeting fired off a string of heated questions about border security.
After attempting to answer some of the questions, Sen. McCain eventually quipped, “Occasionally I get a jerk like that guy.”
3TV asked McCain whether he regretted calling the man a jerk.
“Of course not. I call people jerks all the time, and they call me jerks. It’s supposed to be fun, loosen up,” Sen. McCain responded. “I’ve done town halls for years. They are vigorous and a little combative. That’s what it is supposed to be about. Loosen up.”

Um OK.

If an idiot politician, like McCain called me a jerk, I would be sure NEVER to vote for him again.

Arizona voters should remember this little altercation and be sure to vote McCain out of office in 2016.

And, let this be a lesson to the other Arizona Senator Jeff Flake about associating with McCain and his immigration amnesty machinations.
