“Moveon.org” is just another liberal lie and misrepresentation!

A domain name that ends in “.org” was originally intended for non-profit organizations, but this restriction has not been enforced.  The domain is commonly used by schools and communities, but also by some for-profit entities.

Leave it to the liberals to bastardize this system in their own interests as well.

From Moveon.org’s own website:

“[Moveon.org is] a joint website of MoveOn.org Civic Action and MoveOn.org Political Action.  MoveOn.org Political Action and MoveOn.org Civic Action are separate organizations.”

“MoveOn.org Civic Action is a 501(c)(4) organization which primarily focuses on nonpartisan education and advocacy on important national issues.”

“MoveOn.org Political Action is a federal political committee which primarily helps members elect candidates who reflect our values through a variety of activities aimed at influencing the outcome of the next election.”

moveon 1

Are you starting to get an idea of how this works?

moveon 2

There’s two organizations operating under the same website…, but only one of them is a tax exempt 501)(c) organization.

How convenient.

I’m sure if we’d look at their pathetic attempt at keeping accurate accounting records, we’d see that somehow over 90% of the money flowing in somehow ends up on the tax exempt side.

From the IRS.gov website:

“The promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. However, a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax under section 527(f).”

It’s interesting how these regulations are worded.  There always seems to be elements that could be open for interpretation.  This allows “the swampers” at the IRS the wiggle room to hang conservative groups out to dry while absolving liberal groups, like Moveon.org, of any wrong-doing.

moveon 4

moveon 5

moveon 6

I’m sorry to be so cynical, but it is what it is.

Let’s take a look at some of the “Petitions” and “Campaigns” that don’t “include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.”

Examples directly from From Moveon.org’s own website:

“Shut down the Trump administration’s concentration camps”

“We demand that the University of Florida cancel Donald Trump Jr.’s Speaking Appearance”

“University of Florida is going to pay Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, his partner and former Fox News show host, $50,000 to speak. It’s a waste of student funds and fuels the Trump family’s corrupt and bigoted right-wing agenda. No UF tuition dollars to oligarchs!”

“Trump is an out-of-control, dangerous man, and he’s using the power of the White House to harm us all. He is stirring up racial divisions and violence with his racist attacks and committing human rights atrocities against immigrant families, all while enriching himself, his family, and his donors. And he is obstructing every congressional effort to get to the truth—about his obstruction of justice, his family separation policies, his attempts to insert racist questions into the census, the secrets hidden in his taxes, and so much more. Failure to act will erode our Constitution and democracy, proving that the president is above the law and can act with impunity.  For all these reasons, Democrats need to stand up to stop Trump’s abuses. Congress will be home on recess until September 9th. Meet with your Congressperson and demand they open a formal impeachment inquiry. “

“Confront gun violence and white nationalism.  Trump’s hateful agenda, which is responsible for so many deaths and injuries, is unacceptable, and MoveOn will continue to fight against Trump’s bigotry, take on racism, reject white nationalism, and stand up to the epidemic of gun violence in our country through large scale actions, pressure on elected officials, and by running the largest election campaign in our history to kick racists out of office. Add your name to say ‘enough is enough.’”

“Win Elections and Endorse Progressive Candidates.  As we march to the ballot box in 2020, MoveOn is endorsing candidates to end the GOP control of the Senate and take back the White House. And we’re endorsing 100 dynamic, diverse, progressive candidates for state and local office.”

“Oppose Trump’s March to war.  Donald Trump is assembling a war Cabinet to rush his march toward war. And while we can’t stop warmonger John Bolton, who, Trump appointed to be his national security adviser, we worked hard to defeat the nomination of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. Pompeo is a pro-torture, anti-diplomacy, anti-Muslim, anti-choice, anti-LGBT, climate-change denier who is unfit to serve. MoveOn members made 15,000 calls to the Senate to reject Pompeo, and we ran videos, ads, and digital billboards that helped sway the vast majority of Democrats to oppose him. While the effort fell short of persuading Republicans, it has been a critical fight to oppose Trump’s rush to war—and to lay the groundwork against further military escalation Trump and Pompeo have planned.”

“Act in solidarity with immigrant communities and against white supremacist attacks.  Immigration should be a safe and empowering choice. Everyone should have the freedom to move and freedom to stay based on what is best for them to thrive. But from the cruelest policies of the Trump administration to recent attacks in El Paso, TX, and across Mississippi, immigrant and Latino communities have been relentlessly assaulted. Donald Trump has escalated his all-out attack on immigrants in America—increasing brutal deportations, separating families, detaining sick and pregnant immigrants, and announcing the end to the successful DACA program that enabled young immigrants to live, work, and support their communities without fear of deportation. Working tirelessly alongside immigrant-led allied organizations, MoveOn members are actively demanding that Congress hold the federal agencies committing human rights abuses accountable. Tell Congress to stop enabling Trump’s mass deportation machine and to demand cuts in the budgets for detention beds, ICE and CBP agents, and border militarization.”

Have you read enough?

There’s quite a bit more, but I didn’t want to bore you any longer with the left’s partisan gibberish.

I didn’t see any “direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office,” in any of these “petitions” or “campaigns,” did you?

Just sayin’.

This is exactly why conservatives have to stay on their toes and keep our eyes open.

These liberals don’t take any days off…, which means the days are over when we could afford to look the other way.

What a motley crew (or “Libs Gone Wild!”): The 2020 Democrat presidential candidates!

Seriously?

This is the best group of candidates the democrats could come up with?

demcans 13

None of the current candidates conjure up any vision of them being “presidential,” with possible exception of Joe Biden.

I Predicted Hillary would run again in my blog, “I’m letting everyone know, again, that Hillary is going to run for President, again, in 2020.” from March 15, 2018, and that prediction is looking good, at least as a vice presidential candidate.

Anyway…, let’s take a look at the current crop of esteemed democrat presidential candidates, along with my official candidate classifications!

“On Life Support:” Kamala Harris and Corey Booker.  They seem to get quite a bit of media coverage, although they have been polling at 5% or less.  I believe the fact that they’re Black keeps them from falling into the next category.

“The Walking Dead:” Andrew Yang, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Julian Castro and Beto O’Rourke.  This group consistently polls less than 5%.  Beto and Julian are typically at 1% or less, yet I feel like Beto gets quite a bit of airtime.  Why would anyone care about what he says one way of the other?  Just sayin’.

Then we come to “The Cream of the Crappy Crop:” Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.  These four typically poll with at least 13%, with Biden and Warren usually over 20%.

If Hillary doesn’t jump back into the race, or somebody else doesn’t jump into the race, one of these four will be the democrat presidential candidate for the 2020 presidential election.

Bwahahahahahahaha!

I’m sorry…, let’s get back to looking at the top 4 democrat presidential candidates.

Drumroll please…:

Number four…, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.  Of the top four, Mayor Pete is probably the most reasonable, policy-wise.  But is a small town mayor really ready to run our country?  Are we really ready for our “first lady” to be a man?  I don’t think so.

demcans 12

demcans 9

demcans 10

demcans 11

Number three…, Senator Bernie Sanders.  “Crazy” Bernie identifies as an “Independent” in The Senate, but he’s running for president as a democrat.  We knew he was a democrat all along.  Why was he misrepresenting himself the whole time?  He was obviously being disingenuous.  He seems like he’s a thousand years old, and he is not afraid to admit he’s a socialist at heart.  Your time has passed Bern.

demcans 2

Number two (or 1B)…, Senator Elizabeth Warren. When I see her, she reminds me of a “bag lady” who is wearing her best clothes and left her cart(s) outside. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren is carrying around a lot of racial baggage, along with a lot of cultural hijacking for reasons of personal gain.  She is a woman, but will that be enough for women to hold their noses and actually vote for her?  In the end, they may not have any other choice.  She may be the democrat candidate by default.

demcans 3

demcans 4

demcans 14

Then we have number one (or 1A)…, former Senator and former Vice President Joe Biden…, another poster child for term limits and an “establishment” tool. “Sleepy, creepy, Uncle” Joe Biden is another guy who’s time has really passed.  His only claim to fame is that he was Barack Obama’s vice president, but former President Obama won’t even endorse him!  Plus Vice President Biden actually DID the things the democrats are trying to impeach President Trump for.  He may also end-up being the democrat candidate by default.

demcans 7

demcans 6

demcans 8

Whoever is left standing, you can be sure they’ll have the complete and undivided support of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” along with George Soros and all of the other wealthy “America haters.”

FOUR MORE YEARS!  FOUR MORE YEARS!

Are we “politically polarized” in America now?

Newt Gingrich’s daughter, Jackie Gingrich Cushman, thinks we are.

america 2

She feels, as a country, “we are engaged in a battle for our soul.”

I would tend to agree.

But it’s also a question of what’s fair and what’s unfair.

And a question of what’s true and what’s a lie?

And a question of what’s right and what’s wrong?

And a question of what’s good and what’s evil?

Jackie Gingrich Cushman, has written a new book called “Our Broken America,” which discusses “the polarization” and “the battle.”

america 1

“During my research for the book, I discovered that 55 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of Democrats say they have few or no friends in the other major political party,” Gingrich Cushman says.

I can see that.

I mean…, on many issues, it would seem to be okay to “agree to disagree.”

But with some of the issues of today, I have a hard time with that philosophy.

For example:

If you’re okay with killing a baby seconds before it is about to be born…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 3

america 4

If you’re okay with attacking the 2nd amendment and disarming America’s law abiding citizens…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 5

america 6

If you’re okay with letting anyone and everyone cross the border into our country, whenever they want, and without any question or control…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 8

If you’re okay with protecting illegal immigrants that are already here, who have committed crimes against legal U.S. citizens…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 7

If you’re okay with the removal of God from all aspects of our society…, then we probably won’t be friends.

If you’re not smart enough to realize that the mainstream media has a liberal agenda and is constantly trying to undermine conservatism…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 17

america 14

If you think we should go back to living like we did in the Middle Ages because you think we need to save the planet…, then we probably won’t be friends.

And there are other issues regarding globalism, the federal government taking over the healthcare system, and taxes…, but you get the picture.

“Most people would agree that our country is experiencing an unprecedented level of political polarization. This country is incredibly diverse in many different ways and our diversity is what makes America so strong. We are economically, geographically, racially, ethnically, and ideologically different from one another and we can either choose to let that diversity strengthen us or we can let it sort us into tiny subgroups that refuse to work together.”

Diversity is fine, Ms. Gingrich Cushman, but not when diversity results in stupidity.

america 15

america 16

“When we are ranting at each other – separated [into] our own corners, informed by our own news sources, and immersed in our own social media clusters – we cannot listen to each other and therefore we cannot solve anything.”

The only problem here, Ms. Gingrich Cushman, is you are assuming that the democrats really want to solve anything.

america 11

“Is political polarization dangerous to our country? My opinion is yes, there is too much polarization,” according to Ms. Gingrich Cushman.

I agree that political polarization is dangerous for our country…, but what is the alternative?

Are we supposed to just turn our backs while the radical left-wing whackos send our country into a state of chaos?

Think about it.

america 13

The only reason we’re even talking about political polarization is because conservatives all across our country decided to finally take a stand against all of this liberal craziness and elect Donald Trump.

And thank God we did.

Conservatives are being victimized by “political bigots” almost daily now.

Wait…, what?  “Political bigots?”

Yes…, “political bigots.”

We all tend to associate bigotry with racism or cultural differences.

But “bigotry” is defined as “the intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.”

And like I said, we see this intolerance, by “the left,” displayed constantly these days.

bigots 9

Hence, “political bigotry.”

bigots 1

According to Brie Stimson of Fox News, “A charity event planned in honor of an officer killed in a 2018 mass shooting at a country music bar in in Southern California has been postponed indefinitely — reportedly because a police chief [Thousand Oaks, CA, Police Chief Tim Hagel] didn’t want Republicans invited.”

Well isn’t he special?!

Isn’t he the enlightened one?!

Isn’t he the intolerant one?!

How rude!

What a B-I-G-O-T, BIGOT!

“The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus as well as other officers killed in the line of duty, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.”

“Helus died last Nov. 7, when a 28-year-old suspect allegedly attacked the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, killing a total of 13 people and wounding about a dozen others.”

bigots 2

“Thousands of dollars had already been raised for fallen officers’ families, but the money is now being returned to donors because Thousand Oaks Police Chief Tim Hagel reportedly withdrew the police department because Trump supporters would be speaking at the event.”

Where do these people come from, and who do they think they are?

He should resign his position as Thousand Oaks Police Chief and assume his position as the Chief of the liberal thought police!

bigots 11

“He basically said over and over in the conversation, ‘This is not Trump country, that slogan “Make America Great” is not favorable, popular, within 1,200 square miles, and that we don’t want Republicans here.’ ‘I could not believe it,’ Mike Randall, vice president of the Fallen Officers Foundation, said, according to FOX 11.”

“We don’t want Republicans here?!”

Seriously, Chief?

bigots 5

You do realize we live in America, don’t you?

You do realize that Donald Trump is the duly elected President of The United States…, and that California, your state, is one of The United States, don’t you?

You do realize this isn’t NAZI Germany, don’t you?

‘“The only thing,’ and I quote, ‘the only thing you [could have done to make] this worse, Mike, was to invite Dick Cheney and Sarah Huckabee Sanders,’ [the Chief said], and I went, Wow, are you kidding me?”

No…, he’s not kidding Ms. Stimson.

You know how I know he’s not kidding?

Because these fascist bigots have no sense of humor whatever.

bigots 3

bigots 10

“Both Democrats and Republicans were invited to the event. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s public safety liaison, Trump supporter Scott Baio, who attended Helus’ church, and Trump-supporting singer Joy Villa were all scheduled to attend.”

“The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department issued a statement, saying:

‘“The Blue Bowl event was represented as a charitable flag football tournament to raise funds for the family of Sergeant Ron Helus. An event that would honor Ron’s memory and provide support to his wife Karen and son Jordan. As the event began to materialize, we became concerned with the behavior of some of the organizers of the event. Although I believe the organizers had good intentions, the event was moving in a direction we no longer felt comfortable supporting.”

And when you say “we,” Chief, you really mean “you,” don’t you?

bigots 7

“Singer Villa called the chief’s response ‘disgusting.’”

‘“This is not OK. This is prejudice, hello?’ she [Villa] said. ‘You’re shutting down an event because of the way conservatives think, because I support the president? This is disgusting, I’m appalled, and in all my years being an out conservative, I’ve never seen something so despicable like this.’”

I’m sorry to say, Joy, this political bigotry is quickly becoming the new normal.

There is no middle ground anymore.

It’s truly “us” against “them” now.

And that’s fine…, just don’t pretend like it’s not.

WINNING!

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

Yes my friends…, it’s true…, the democrats have adopted this Nazi strategy…, along with others.

accuse 1

If you stand back and objectively view what is going on in American politics…, it’s hard to deny that the democrats have morphed into a sick,  “new Nazi party,” with the propagandistic mainstream media as their partners is crime.

accuse 3

accuse 12

The democrats, of course, in keeping with their strategy, attempt to attach the “Nazi” moniker to the conservatives, and label President Trump as “Hitler.”

During the 2016 election, the democrats questioned whether the conservatives and Donald Trump would accept the results of the presidential election.

We now see that the democrats are the ones unwilling to accept the results of the 2016 election.

accuse 15

Donald Trump is accused of “Russian collusion,” and hounded about this for over two years.

We now see that it was Hillary Clinton and the rest of the democrats who colluded with Russia. It was the Clinton campaign that financed the phony Russian dossier.

Obama

Donald Trump is accused of “rigging” the 2016 election.

We now see that it was Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and the democrats who attempted to “rig” the election.  The Trump campaign was spied on by the very people who should have been protecting the campaign.

We have also learned how the liberals at Google and Facebook attempted to influence the election by directing users to pro-democrat sites and anti-conservative sites.

accuse 9

The President’s spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway is accused of violating The Hatch Act, which is a law designed to prohibit employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice president, and certain designated high-level officials, from engaging in foreign discussions and negotiations independent of the government and its policy.  This was a baseless accusation.

We see these disingenuous charges as we see former Obama Secretary of State, John Kerry, in discussions with the leaders of Iran for some unknown reason, in violation of the Logan Act. The Logan Act is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government’s position.

accuse 17

accuse 16

Donald Trump is accused of obstruction of justice.

We now know that various members of the Obama administration (his DOJ, FBI and CIA) basically tried to establish a coup to take down the newly, and duly, elected President of the United States.

accuse 19

We saw the Obama administration illegally use the phony Russian dossier as a basis for obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.

accuse 14

We also saw Obama Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, meet with former President Bill Clinton in order to get Hillary off the hook for her shady and illegal email handling.

accuse 13

Donald Trump is accused of illegal dealings with Ukraine…, by someone who apparently has no direct knowledge of what supposedly occurred here.  How does that work, and what the hell does that mean?  This “twice removed whistle blower” is now apparently going to testify before Congress.  Isn’t hearsay inadmissible?

We now learn it was Joe Biden and the Obama administration who had the corrupt dealings with Ukraine.

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty,” then sit back and let the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” take over…, focusing on the democrats’ charges, while basically ignoring and covering-up the democrats’ sins.

It is somewhat effective with those who aren’t really paying attention…, and those who choose to look the other way.

What will be the next false accusation?

And the false accusation after that?

Keep your eyes open.  We have over a whole year to go until the 2020 elections.

The “fake news,” liberal propaganda has only begun to hit the fan!

accuse 10

This is what the “Occupy Democrats” posted when Barack Obama was President. I wonder if they would apply the same beliefs where President trump is concerned?

Let me introduce you to the five kinds of liberals, or democrats, as I see them.

Saying someone is a liberal or a democrat is an over generalization that doesn’t do many of these people justice, or on the other hand call them out for what they really are.

dems5 9

Here are my five liberal/democrat sub-groups:

The Architects, or The Puppet Masters – People like George Soros, Saul Alinsky, Thomas Steyer, and Donald Sussman.  For the most part you don’t know much about these people, and that’s the way they like it.  Their goal is to destroy America as we know it, and they have the money to finance their vision.

dems5 4

dems5 4

The Tools, or The Puppets – Most politicians and activists like Barack Obama, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi and Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, for example. They are the upper level “tools” used by The Architects to advance their agenda and narrative.  They believe they are more important than they really are.  This group would also include other members of “the swamp,” “the deep state,” and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

dems5 3

The Confused, or The Sheep – This is the biggest group.  This group contains many well intentioned people who are just naïve, misinformed, misguided, looking to find their way or just looking to belong.  Many splinter groups are in this category as well, like various sex and gender groups, as well as many other special interest groups.

dems5 10

dems5 8

dems5 7

The Militants – These people are driven by race, religion and/or ethnicity, and profit by keeping these divisions amongst us alive.  They are activists, extremists, and radicals.  Many of the leaders in this area graduate into being a “tool.”

The Freeloaders – These are people who don’t really care about issues or our country.  They’re just lazy, and they want the government to take care of them and give them stuff for free.

dems5 2

Did I miss anyone?

Please let me know what you think about my list.

 

“From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.”

― Abraham Lincoln

An update: The “little old” Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) – a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

This blog is a follow-up to my previous blog about the SPLC from June, 5, 2018.

You may have noticed the biased mainstream media making more references to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as of late.  They say, “The Southern poverty Law Center called for this…,” and “the Southern Poverty Law Center said that…,” and so on.

So again…, let’s review.  Who the heck is this Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and what’s their deal?”

Well, here we go …, again:

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s own website: “The SPLC is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.  Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.”

As usual, and like it is with most of these supposed do-gooder organizations, their cause sounds quite noble.  I can see Superman now…, with the American flag waving behind him…, declaring he is fighting, “The never ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way…,” and the SPLC!

The truth is that this mission statement is a “star spangled” mask worn by the organization to cover up the ugly truths of what they actually hope to accomplish.

The truth is that, “…because the SPLC depends on racism, violence, and division for its revenue and reason for being, they have reason to want more of these terrible things, or at least the appearance of more. Their vested interest is not in solving and reducing these social issues, but in maximizing and perpetuating them.”

splc 3

The truth is that the SPLC spends the vast majority of its funds on its own salaries, propagandizing, and promoting its own narrative, rather than the public good.

Joy Pullmann, executive editor for The Federalist, also recently reported, “The SPLC is basically a very effective scam organization that uses images of the KKK in the white outfits, and now, Donald Trump’s policies, to scare donors into sending them piles of money. Trump-mongering has been very good for their business. The SPLC’s latest IRS form, from 2017, shows that “Gifts, grants, contributions, membership fees” to SPLC almost tripled, from $50,297,653 in 2015 to $132,044,179 (yes, that’s $132 million!) in 2016, of course the year Trump ran and won the presidency. Investigative reporters and actual anti-hate-crimes groups say SPLC is largely a shell organization that uses masterful marketing techniques to rake in big-time profits for its staff, especially founder Morris Dees.”

splc 4

“Its two largest expenses are propaganda operations: creating its annual lists of ‘haters’ and ‘extremists,’ and running a big effort that pushes ‘tolerance education,’ from a very liberal point of view of course, through more than 400,000 public-school teachers.”

“But what is the single biggest effort undertaken by the SPLC? Fundraising, of course. On the organization’s 2015 IRS 990 form it declared $10 million of direct fundraising expenses, far more than it has ever spent on any legal services.”

Last year, a Washington Free Beacon investigation showed SPLC keeps millions in offshore accounts, which charity experts labeled “a huge red flag” and “completely unacceptable.”

The truth is, it’s funny how almost all of the “haters” and “extremists” the SPLC tends to identify are white and/or conservative.

The truth is that when the SPLC says, “The SPLC is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society,” what they really mean is that they are dedicated to fighting those who do not agree with their liberal and/or anti-American socialist agenda.

splc 5

The truth is that when the SPLC says, “…the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality,” they mean they are working towards the day when their radical liberal ideals are basically unopposed.

The truth is that the SPLC can always fall back on the old reliable hate groups, the Klu Klux Klan and Nazi related groups, and the old rallying cries of racism and prejudice. But these groups and ideals are now just used as “cover” by the SPLC.

“SPLC is entitled to its own opinions, but it is not entitled to respect for them or a pretense that they are fair, neutral, unbiased, or free of self-serving motivations.”

In an expose, Harper’s Bazaar magazine said, “Former SPLC lawyer Gloria Browne, who resigned to protest its behavior, “told reporters that the Center’s programs were calculated to cash in on ‘black pain and white guilt.’” They are not targeted to need or effective social solutions.”

“Treating SPLC as a good-faith arbiter of public discourse grants speech police power to an organization whose business model is to make money from poisoning public discourse. Those who care about free speech and justice will grant no such power to folks who, like SPLC, exploit these noble and necessary ideas for their own selfish, cynical, socially destructive ends.”

The SPLC actually did earn a level of credibility back in the 1970’s (40 years ago) fighting some anti-KKK cases. Sadly, that credibility has long been sold out and co-opted.

The truth is that the SPLC of 2019 has little resemblance to the SPLC of the 1970’s.  The SPLC has been high jacked by the democrats and “the swamp” in general, and set-up to be an “untouchable” and an uncontrollable propaganda arm of the democrat party.

So there you have it. The next time you hear a reporter or a commentator refer to the Southern Poverty Law Center, you know where they are coming from.

Just recently, the SPLC has reared its ugly head again in a “piling on” effort against former Trump Administration officials.

According to Bradford Betz for Fox News, “Immigration and civil rights groups recently sent a list to the CEOs of American companies urging them not to hire Trump officials who were involved in last year’s separation of migrant children from their families.”

Hmmm…, that’s funny…, and disingenuous.  This is the first I’ve heard of this blacklisting, even though the policy mentioned here was established under President Bill Clinton, continued under President George W. Bush, and then continued, and flourished, as well under President Obama prior to President Trump.

So why the sudden cry to blacklist government officials involved in just following the incredibly inept laws they have been given by Congress?

It’s just an extension of the intolerant behavior being exhibited by our fascist democrat friends across the social spectrum in our country today.

“As outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen looks for her next job following her resignation Sunday, she may find herself battling a liberal blacklisting effort against those who’ve served in the Trump administration.”

“Nielsen’s name appears on a list that a cabal of immigration and civil rights groups recently sent to the CEOs of American companies, urging them not to hire Trump officials who were involved in last year’s separation of migrant children from their families.”

“Other current and former Trump administration officials targeted include John Kelly, the former White House chief of staff, and Sarah Sanders, the current White House press secretary.”

‘“Some of these individuals have left the administration in recent months,’ the letter to the CEOs states. ‘Regardless of when they leave, they should not be allowed to seek refuge in your boardrooms or corner offices. Allowing them to step off the revolving door and into your welcoming arms should be a nonstarter.’”

“The letter was signed by 41 immigration and civil rights groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has targeted Nielsen in the past.”

“The coalition targeting the Trump administration officials also purchased an ad in Sunday’s New York Times that read: ‘Attention Corporate America: Don’t let hate into your boardroom.’ The ad features a MAGA-like hat emblazoned with the slogan ‘Put Kids in Cages.’”

Well…, at least they don’t have to worry about Amazon hiring any of these former Trump officials in New York City!  Wa, wa, waaaah.

The crazy liberal left just seems to keep forgetting that conservatives and “just plain old common sense” Americans have been awakened to the left’s shenanigans now, and there’s no going back.

We’re on to you.

We know where you’re coming from…, and we know you’re as un-American as the day is long.

WINNING!

Is this the “final straw” regarding liberal hypocrisy?

I’m referring to the banning of plastic straws all across “the civilized world,” in favor of the more “environmentally” friendly paper straws.

straws 5

The only problem is…, drum roll please…, the plastic straws are actually the more environmentally friendly ones!!!

Of course, in the liberal world…, the appearance of something being effective is considerably more important than the actual effectiveness of something.

Rob Picheta, of CNN Business, reports that, “McDonald’s has reportedly admitted that its new paper straws, rolled out last year to help ‘protect the environment,’ can’t be recycled — unlike the plastic versions they replaced.”

“The fast food giant acknowledged on Monday that the new versions are too thick to be processed by its recyclers.  While the materials are recyclable, their current thickness makes it difficult for them to be processed by our waste solution providers, who also help us recycle our paper cups,” a McDonald’s spokesman told the UK’s Press Association news agency.”

Details, details!

Let’s not lose sight of the fact that we got those evil plastic straws banned…, regardless of the actual effect on the environment!

“The issue was first revealed by The Sun newspaper, which published an internal McDonald’s memo (Was it written by Ronald McDonald himself?!), saying that the company’s paper straws ‘are not yet recyclable and should be disposed of in general waste until further notice.’”

“When the firm announced the introduction of paper straws in June 2018, it said the move was ‘part of wider efforts to protect the environment.’”

If the effort was much wider we’d have a real environmental crisis on our hands!

‘“The government’s ambitious plans, combined with strong customer opinion, has helped to accelerate the move away from plastic and I’m proud that we’ve been able to play our part in helping to achieve this societal change,’ Paul Pomroy, CEO of McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said in a press release at the time.”

Ha!

Yes…, he’s sooo proud they’ve “helped to accelerate the move away from plastic and proud that they’ve been able to play their part in helping to achieve this societal change…,” even though their change is actually harming the environment more.

That’s liberalism for ‘ya.

“But the new straws were unpopular even before the latest revelation.  Numerous social media users complained that they became soggy in drinks, and a petition calling on the firm to bring back their old straws has been signed more than 50,000 times.”

Our straws are soggy!

Bring back the evil, environment destroying, plastic straws!

The fate of planet Earth be damned!

All the Dems are Kung Fu fighting…, their tongues are fast as lightning!

What we’ve been seeing is that, apparently, a white person cannot be a “true” liberal, and that it’s okay for one liberal to drop the race card on another liberal…, if that other liberal happens to be white.

A couple of weeks ago we had Kamala Harris insinuating that Joe Biden had demonstrated racist behavior in the past…, and now we hear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accusing Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against and singling out some of the house representatives of color.

Interesting.

This is much better than watching “The Young and the Restless,” or “As the World Turns!”

Scott Jennings of USA Today says, “The Democratic Party is a mess.”

“If we learned anything lately it is that the Democratic Party is an absolute mess.

Fault lines are deeper than ever between the young socialists and the old establishment figures who run the place.”

Aka, “The Squad” and the “term limits poster child,” Nancy Pelosi.

Additionally, “At the first primary debate, Harris assailed Biden for opposing federally mandated busing, an extremely unpopular policy among people of all races and political parties. Debate viewers were left to believe that Harris — who emotionally attributed busing to her getting a quality education — supported the federal mandates.”

mess 12

Harris also said on the debate stage that she, “would eliminate all private insurance,” and then the next day said she, “wouldn’t.”

“The prospect of nominating an old white male for president continues to deeply divide the Democratic Party, and the Woke Folk (at least the ones not supporting Bernie Sanders) are desperate for someone — anyone — to destroy America’s elderly political patriarchy. Policy, principle, and experience are irrelevant — race, gender or sexual orientation are the only credentials required to satisfy the angry [liberal democrat] mob.”

The House speaker recently gave an interview to the New York Times in which she cast aspersions on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other young Democratic women of color who criticized her for giving in on the Senate border funding bill.

Though she didn’t mention them by name, Pelosi was referring to Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, in addition to Ocasio-Cortez. Otherwise known as “The Squad,” or “AOC plus three.”

‘“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,’ Pelosi said. ‘But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.’”

“Insulting AOC’s ‘Twitter world’ is to the “Woke” Folk what a good ‘yo mama’ joke was to my friends on the school playground. Predictably, AOC punched right back at Pelosi, calling the speaker’s legislative moves ‘a huge mistake.’”

In case your wondering, “woke” is a trendy and relative new term used among our liberal friends which means,  “having an awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice.”  “Woke people are allowed to point fingers at all the rest of us “deplorables.”

According to Veronica Stracqualursi, Manu Raju and Sunlen Serfaty of CNN, “Ocasio-Cortez calls Pelosi’s ‘singling out’ of Democratic women of color ‘disrespectful’”

‘“It’s really just pointing out the pattern, right? We’re not talking about just progressives, it’s signaling out four individuals,’ Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Capitol Hill. ‘And knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration detention, I think it’s just worth asking why.’”

What?

And no, we don’t know the amount of “death threats” you get, or from who.

And what does “concentration detention have to do with any of this?

And how do you “signal out” people?

I’m assuming she means “singling out” people.

BUT, when asked if she thinks Pelosi has racial animus or is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said unequivocally, “No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not.”

Ha!

Well, then what were you exactly saying Alexandria?

I mean, we all have ears, we all understand English, and we all heard you basically call Speaker Pelosi a racist…, whether you want to come right out and it or not.

Then…, Democrat Rep. Lacy Clay of Missouri accused Ocasio-Cortez of using “the race card” in her comments to the Post.

mess 10

‘“What a weak argument,’ Clay said. ‘Because you can’t get your way, and because you are -, you’re getting pushback, you resort to use the race card? Unbelievable. Unbelievable to me.’”

OH – MY – GOD!!!

Wait…, let me read that again.

Are you kidding me?!!!

Democrats do this all day, every day, to conservatives…, but that’s okay?

But it’s “unbelievable” and “weak” when a democrat resorts to this when dealing with another democrat.

Does the hypocrisy know no bounds?!

Representative Clay then added, “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.  It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion,” according to Sam Dorman and Chad Pergram of Fox News.

Ooooh, “level of ignorance.”  That’s a good one!

And again…, “It has no place in a civil discussion,” UNLESS they’re dealing with conservatives.

The far left wing of the democrat party has just adjusted their parameters.  Democrat moderates to them are now on the same level that conservatives are to democrat moderates.

Ha!  Isn’t it funny how that works now?

“The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.”

Oh, we can only hope Representative Lacy, we can only hope!

We’ll all tune in next week for the continuing saga of “The Young and the Restless” meets “All My Children!”

WINNING!
