Trump is the big winner in this week’s primaries!

Yes…, President Trump just keeps on winning, while the democrats and the lamestream media come out the losers…, again.

According to Doug Schoen, for Fox News, “Trump is big winner and Sessions is the big loser in Tuesday primaries, while Dems remain divided.”

He also reports that, “The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

“There are two key takeaways from the outcome of Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama, Maine and Texas.”

“First, the big winner of the night was President Trump.  Several Trump-backed candidates defeated their opponents and unquestionably benefited significantly from The President’s support. The most notable of these was former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who defeated former senator and attorney general Jeff Sessions for the GOP nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. Tuberville will face Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, considered a highly vulnerable incumbent.”

“Second, Democratic primary results show the party is deeply divided, complicating the Democrats’ path to winning majority control of the Senate and defeating Trump in the November election.”

“Alabama was the biggest race Tuesday and of special interest to [President] Trump. The President forced out Sessions as attorney general after Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election – a decision Sessions said he was required to make because he had been involved in the Trump campaign. Trump never forgave Sessions for the recusal and considered it a betrayal.”

“In his bid to regain the Senate seat he resigned to become Trump’s attorney general, Sessions faced fierce opposition from The President, who repeatedly criticized him with harsh insults and actively supported Tuberville. Trump’s endorsement clearly carried more weight with voters than Sessions’ endorsements from prominent Republicans and his former Republican Senate colleagues, including Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.”

So, who are these other “prominent republicans who went out of their way to buck President Trump and endorse Jeff Sessions?

Ann Coulter

Michelle Malkin

And republican senators:

Jim Inhoffe (OK)

Pat Roberts (KS)

Mike Enzi (WY)

Mike Crapo (ID)

John Barrasso (WY)

Roy Blunt (MO)

John Boozman (AR)

Ron Johnson (WI)

Deb Fischer (NE)

Michelle Malkin…, you have broken my heart!  Jeff “the backstabber” Sessions?!  Really?  What could you have possibly been thinking?  I’m going to have to re-evaluate our relationship.

acandidates 11

And my own senator, Ron Johnson!  Why would you endorse Jeff “the mole” Sessions?!

Very disappointing.

acandidates 12

“Meanwhile, in Texas, former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who was endorsed by [President] Trump, won his primary for a U.S. House seat, beating out Josh Winegarner. Winegarner was endorsed by the outgoing Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry.”

acandidates 13

“In many ways, the weight of [President] Trump’s endorsements in Alabama and Texas signals that The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

Recollecting the polls and their accuracy during the 2016 presidential election, I would say this is most definitely the case.

A day or so before the primaries, I can recall the media touting that the Sessions-Tuberville race was a virtual toss-up.

Tuberville crushed Sessions, 60.7% to 39.3%.

Some kind of “toss-up,” huh?

“In several U.S. House and Senate Democratic primaries held in June, progressive challengers either defeated or came close to nearly defeating their well-funded establishment opponents.”

“Likewise, the division between the progressive and moderate factions of the party was manifest in Tuesday’s primaries.”

“Given the clear progressive insurgency within the Democratic Party across the country, there will also likely be greater pressure on the party to embrace left-leaning policies, such as defunding the police, which are unpopular with the general electorate.”

You mean most people don’t want to operate under jungle rules?

You mean most people believe that criminals should be arrested?

You mean that most people believe that other people who can’t behave in a civilized manner should be dealt with accordingly?

If that’s what you mean, well then maybe you do agree with me that these favorable polls for Sleepy Joe are seriously flawed.

It’s hard to believe the democrats believe most people in the country want the Chicago, the L.A., or the New York lifestyle of burning, looting, shooting, killing and just general lawlessness.

“Doing so could cost the Democrats the presidency, the Senate, and even their current House majority.”

We can only hope!

The only mention of these primary events by CNN is a whiney little article about Sessions and how he was mistreated by The President, and how he paid the price for being associated with President Trump somehow, even though The President firmly backed his opponent in the primary.

Only the “logic” of CNN can explain that “expert” analysis.

WINNING!

Defund your police!  I dare you!

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “In the wake of George Floyd’s death, calls to ‘defund the police’ have in a matter of days escalated from a fringe campaign to a celebrity-backed cause to part of the municipal mainstream — and now appear primed to spur official action, to varying degrees, in cities across the country.”

adare 6

These cities would include Minneapolis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, amongst others.

You know…, your list of typical, clueless, liberal hotbed cities.

As I don’t live in these circus towns, I don’t really care what they do…, but I must admit, that watching the news every night after they got rid of their police departments would definitely be entertaining, to say the least!

Like I said…, I dare all of you liberal cities to get rid of your police forces…, I DARE YOU!

I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!

adare 1

“The stunning momentum behind the movement has fueled Republican criticism that ‘radical’ ideas are being readily embraced by Democrats.”

“On the ground, however, there is a visible conflict between Democrats on board with ‘defund’ and those who want to seek reforms without actually dismantling police departments. This split, and the sudden power that activists wield over local officials on the issue, was perhaps best illustrated over the weekend when Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey faced a crowd of protesters asking him whether he would support abolishing the city’s police department.”

adare 3

“Frey, while promising reform to the city’s ‘systemically racist’ policing system and saying ‘the police union needs to be put in its place,’ was asked a ‘yes or no’ question by a protester [one of the organizers, I believe] if he would ‘commit to defunding the Minneapolis Police Department.’”

Ah, the dreaded “yes or no” question!

A good politician knows to disregard that stipulation!

‘“We don’t want no more police,’ the woman questioning him continued. ‘Is that clear? We don’t want people with guns toting around in our communities, shooting us down.’”

Oh, really?

This woman apparently isn’t aware that African-Americans are 4-5 times more likely to be killed by another African-American than a white person, and close to 300 times more likely to be killed by another African-American as opposed to being killed by a police officer.

Do they plan on banning their own black men, in general, as well?

Just sayin’.

Typical misinformed liberal, or doesn’t care to be informed liberal, or is informed but is just pushing the radical left’s narrative without any real concern for the people of the community.

I vote for the latter.

‘“I do not support the abolition’ of the police department, Frey said.”

Wow!  Even though I’m not a fan, this guy is not as stupid as I thought, and he definitely has some balls to respond honestly in the middle of a huge, antagonistic, crowd.

I do give credit where credit is due!

“He was immediately shouted down. ‘Get the f— out of here,’ the protester responded as others loudly booed [and threw things at] Frey, who later reiterated his commitment to reforming the department, despite saying he would not dismantle it entirely.”

adare 4

“Despite Frey’s reluctance to go along, Minneapolis’ left-leaning City Council members on Sunday announced a veto-proof push to disband the Minneapolis police.”

“Supporters of the move told Fox News, ‘We recognize that we don’t have all the answers about what a police-free future looks like, but our community does. We’re committing to engaging with every willing community member in the city of Minneapolis over the next year to identify what safety looks like for you.’”

“The calls for dismantling the city police are perhaps the loudest from City Council member Jeremiah Ellison, the son of state Attorney General Keith Ellison. The younger Ellison [a Muslim and a proponent of implementing Sharia Law] has said that after taking apart the police department, ‘we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due.’”

adare 5

I can’t wait to see what your idea of public safety and emergency response looks like…, and I imagine the criminals in Minneapolis can’t wait either!

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “Minneapolis City Council president Lisa Bender went viral on Monday morning when she told CNN that calling the police when your home is broken into ‘comes from a place of privilege,’ before being lampooned by everyone from Sen. Ted Cruz to Donald Trump Jr.”

adare 2

“Bender brought some attention to CNN’s low-rated morning show ‘New Day’ [ouch!] when she joined Alisyn Camerota to discuss her goal of dismantling the Minneapolis police department in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death while in police custody.”

“Bender said the police are not keeping everyone safe, and the first step of fixing the problem is to admit the current system isn’t working. Bender has said she can imagine a future without police, and has urged money to be redirected from a ‘militarized police force’ to things she feels would greater benefit the community.”

‘“Do you understand that the word dismantle, or police-free, also makes some people nervous, for instance, what if, in the middle of the night, my home is broken into,’ Camerota asked. ‘Who do I call?’”

“BENDER: ‘Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.  For those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.’”

“BENDER: ‘We’ve done an analysis of all the reasons people call 911, and I’ve looked at ways we can shift the response away from armed police officers into a more appropriate response for mental health calls, for some domestic violence calls, for health-related issues.’”

Obviously, Ms. Bender doesn’t even realize she’s legislating herself right out of a job!

If no one lives or works in Minneapolis anymore, there won’t be a need for a Common Council either.

Stupid is as stupid does…

… but these liberals are dangerous!

adefund 18

There is a growing movement across the US to defund many major metropolitan police departments and get rid of the police, as we know them, altogether.

adefund 1

I guess these big, liberal, cities can do what they want.  I just thank God I don’t live in one of these cities!

These liberals have literally lost their minds.

adefund 12

Who exactly is going to live and reside in these “policeless” cities?

What businesses are going to feel safe operating there?

What about utility services, as well as fire departments and emergency medical services?

What hospitals are going to want to operate in that type of environment?

What law-abiding and decent people are going to want to live in these places with their families?

Who is going to want to risk their lives visiting these places anymore?

adefund 15

The criminal elements in all of these cities must be laughing their a$$es off at these liberal idiots and licking their chops in anticipation of a cop-free environment.

I predict that these major, liberal, cities will become wastelands within a year if they manage to achieve their “policeless” goals.

Have you seen the movie “Escape from New York?”  Well, if you want to see a preview of life in New York City without a police force, watch it.

adefund 10

According to Sam Levin, in Los Angeles, for “The Guardian,” Activists say the way to stop police brutality and killings is to cut law enforcement budgets and reinvest in services.”

“The movement to defund the police is gaining significant support across America, including from elected leaders, as protests over the killing of George Floyd sweep the nation.”

adefund 2

“For years, activists have pushed US cities and states to cut law enforcement budgets amid a dramatic rise in spending on police and prisons while funding for vital social services has shrunk or disappeared altogether.”

“Government officials have long dismissed the idea as a leftist fantasy, but the recent unrest and massive budget shortfalls from the Covid-19 crisis appear to have inspired more mainstream recognition of the central arguments behind defunding.”

“A leftist fantasy?”

More like a social nightmare.

adefund 16

‘“To see legislators who aren’t even necessarily on the left supporting at least a significant decrease in New York police department [NYPD] funding is really very encouraging,’ Julia Salazar, a New York state senator and Democratic socialist, told the Guardian on Tuesday. ‘It feels a little bit surreal.’”

adefund 19

Oh, it’s surreal alright!

I’m also guessing that Ms. Salazar won’t actually be living in these “policeless” areas.

“Floyd’s death on camera in Minneapolis, advocates say, was a powerful demonstration that police reform efforts of the last half-decade have failed to stop racist policing and killings.”

I’m not sure you can lump all police problems into one big racial pile, Mr. Levin.

More than twice the number of whites have died in police custody as opposed to blacks, and many black officers have been involved with these deaths as well.

I’m sure race comes into play occasionally, but for the most part we’re just dealing with a handful of inept and/or uncaring cops who should really be in another line of work.

“Meanwhile, the striking visuals of enormous, militarized and at times violent police forces responding to peaceful protests have led some politicians to question whether police really need this much money and firepower.”

“Violent police forces responding to peaceful protesters?”

Excuse me, Mr. Levin, but are you taking some type of hallucinogenic medication, or are you just being intentionally disingenuous?

I’m guessing the latter.

How many protesters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many looters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many criminal vandals and rioters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, vandals and rioters have been killed by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, and vandals have been injured in some way by the police in response to their actions?

There have undeniably been some…, and probably rightly so.

Overall, I feel the police forces across our nation have shown incredible restraint, unbelievable restraint, when dealing with all of these protesters, looters and rioters.

Now…,

How many cops have been shot during these “protests?”

Over a dozen, and counting.

How many cops have been injured in some way during these “protests?”

Easily in the hundreds, and counting.

If you’d like to see the police officers who have died in the line of duty, just doing their jobs, I’d like to invite you to visit the Ofice Down Memorial Page at https://odmp.org

“Community groups advocating for defunding have put forward differing strategies, some merely opposing police budget increases, others advocating mass reductions, and some fighting for full defunding as a step toward abolishing police forces. Some initiatives are tied to the fight to close prisons. All are pushing for a reinvestment of those dollars in services.”

Abolishing police forces and closing prisons.

Who are running these community groups?

The Joker?

The Penguin?

Lex Luthor?

The Riddler?

I mean, really!

adefund 14

“Amid the protests, some local leaders with budgeting powers have started proposing modest cuts to policing. The most substantial change so far, has come in Minneapolis where the school board on Tuesday voted to end its contract with the police department. The University of Minnesota has also pledged to stop working with police.”

‘“People have been fighting for years to get cops out of schools, and now it’s happening overnight,’ said Tony Williams, a member of MPD150, an abolition group whose literature on building a ‘police-free future’ has spread on social media in recent days. One elected Minneapolis ward member said this week that the city’s police department was ‘irredeemably beyond reform,’ the kind of remark that would until recently have been unthinkable to organizers.”

I don’t believe that the people and students of Columbine High School, Sandy Hook Elementary School, or Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were too upset about the cops being in their schools.

Just sayin’.

adefund 22“Kelly Lytle Hernandez, a UCLA historian and recent MacArthur recipient, said this could be a pivotal moment for the US: ‘We’ve created over the last 30 to 40 years a sense that our safety and wellbeing always comes from investing more and more in police.’”

Well, Miss MacArthur award recipient (let’s just say you won’t see any conservatives winning that award), how else would you recommend spending money to promote safety in our big cities?

I do agree with you, however, that this is “a pivotal moment” for many of our big cities.

Either they can choose to use common sense when approaching these problems, or they can go off the deep end, following these know-nothing, anti-American, liberal pied pipers.

I’m guessing that common sense will not prevail amongst these idiots and liberal provocateurs.

‘“This week, it seems there is increasing recognition of this failure,’ she said, adding, ‘Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation that I’m hoping you’re seeing broad-based support for on the streets today.’”

Well, there you have it.

“Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation.”

Just the first step.

And the “historical transformation” involves the abandoning of our American values and the surrendering of our freedom as we devolve towards a socialistic/communistic/globalistic mess.

Tyler Olson of Fox News adds that, “Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to ‘dismantle’ the police department and replace it with ‘a transformative new model for public safety.’”

Ha!

I’m anxious to see what these daring young fascists have in mind.

“Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a representative of the city’s Ward 5, explicitly led calls to ‘dramatically rethink’ how the city keeps its people safe.”

adefund 9

‘“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,’ he tweeted. ‘And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response.’”

I’m sure their “rethinking” will include Sharia Law in there somewhere, based on his family’s Muslim background.

“His call was echoed by Lisa Bender, the president of the city council.”

The president of the city council!

adefund 21

‘“Yes,’ she said in response to Ellison. ‘We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.’”

“That was not the first time Bender had addressed calls to ‘dismantle’ the city’s police force this week, however. On Wednesday she posted a thread about how a ‘white person’ should think about dismantling the police.”

I honestly don’t think you’ll have many white people left in your city by that time, but let’s hear it anyway, Ms. Bender.

“If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?  I mean this quite sincerely & seriously: just look at recent conversations about City-funded neighborhood organizations to understand how explicitly we would have to work to establish alternative systems that do not replicate the same problems. White ppl need to show up for this.”

I’m really not sure what to say about this racist individual or her confused train of thought.

I always wonder, “how do all of these idiots get elected?

“According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bender sees the city’s potentially revamped public safety force as potentially sending social workers or other civilian personnel into situations that are traditionally handled by police.”

Oh, ya…, that’s going to work out real well!

It’s confirmed.  These liberals HAVE all lost their minds…, at least what little minds they had.
