“Progressives” are really “Anti-America” “Americans!”

When you hear the term “progressive” in the future, just remember to think “anti-American,” because that’s really what they are.

“Progressive” equals anti-America.

“Progressive” equals anti-America.

Again, “Progressive” equals anti-America.  

It’s important to truthfully define these people for what they actually represent, and not allow them to define themselves in a more positive propagandistic way.

The only thing they are “progressive” about is making progress towards destroying America.

Please don’t forget that.

Joel Klotkin, for Newsweek (Weak News), says, “A Middle Class rebellion against Progressives is gaining steam.”

This isn’t exactly true, Joel. The “rebellion against progressives” has been here all along…, it’s just that you and your ilk are finally recognizing it.., mostly because you have no choice.  

Klotkin continues, “A specter is haunting America, a great revolt that threatens to dwarf the noxious rebellion led by Trump.”

Ha!  Ya…, the awful, “noxious rebellion,” in your opinion, against those politicians and deep state bureaucrats who choose to put America last instead of America first.

How dare they…, and how dare President Trump?!

“The echoes of another potentially larger pushback can already be heard in progressive America. But it’s not towards socialism, as many suggest. It’s the opposite: a new middle-class rebellion against the excesses of the Left.”

More accurately, Mr. Klotkin, it’s a rebellion against democrat Nazism and neo-democrat Marxism. 

“This new middle-class rebellion isn’t rejecting everything that progressives stand for [I would beg to differ, Mr. Klotkin!], but the ‘current focus on systemic racism,’ coupled with a newfound and heavily enforced cultural conformism and the obsessive focus on a never-ending litany of impending ‘climate emergences’ are less likely to pass muster with most of the middle class, no matter how popular they are with the media, academics, and others in the progressive corner.”

Translation: The middle Class (patriots that still possess common sense) are not falling for your propagandistic BS, no matter how adamant the democrat Nazis are about it. 

“And this new middle-class rebellion is being bolstered by a wide-ranging intellectual rebellion by traditional liberals against the Left’s dogmatism and intolerance. Indeed, what we’re about to see has the potential to reprise the great shift among old liberals that had them embracing Reagan in reaction to the Left’s excesses of that generation.”

Translation: Progressives are getting so obnoxious that even the average liberal is questioning their intentions.

“In a way, this should not be surprising. After all, the progressive base is limited: According to a survey conducted by the non-partisan group ‘More in Common,’ ‘progressives’ constitute barely eight percent of the electorate.”

“Progressives constitute barely eight percent of the electorate!” 

“The report also found that fully 80 percent of all Americans believe that “political correctness is a problem,” including large majorities of millennials and racial minorities.”

“Party line journalists [democrat Nazi propaganda ministers] may see President Biden as the new champion of the middle class [Excuse me, but I just threw up in my mouth!], but every time he adopts central tenets of the new Left, he undermines his pitch. And this happens not infrequently: The Biden Administration has adopted elements of the ‘anti-racist’ agenda, for example, by explicitly favoring Black farmers for subsidies, rather than focusing on all farmers in need. Race issues may be popular on college campuses and in the human relations departments of giant corporations like Lockheed and Amazon, but a recent Yale study found that language based on inclusivity around class was far more popular than one focused largely on race, even with progressive voters.”

Get it?  It’s opposite day!

Being racist is being anti-racist, and tolerance is demonstrated by being intolerant.

And you definitely don’t want to be “undermining your (BS) pitch,” illegitimate Joe!”

“This is not the message coming out of the Biden administration, which has put a premium on diversity hiring and ‘equity, ’despite the fact that racial quotas, in hiring or in college admissions, are unpopular with three out of four Americans, including African-Americans and Hispanics; 65% of Hispanics, 62% of black Americans and 58% of Asians oppose affirmative action in college admissions.”

When you can control the vote, eight percent of the people can control the other ninety-two percent…, at least for a while.

“Biden is similarly losing the middle class on immigration. Already many Latinos, particularly in Texas and Arizona, fear the loss of border control that accompanied the shift from Trump to Biden administrations. The crisis at the border has the potential to overwhelm the economies, health and welfare systems in heavily Hispanic border communities, which is sparking alarm among border state Democrats.”

“None of this is to suggest that minorities will vote for Republicans en masse in the near future, particularly if the party cannot transcend its embarrassing Trump worship. But the growing chasm between what people want and what Biden is offering could prove a potentially immense challenge that could undermine future Democratic gains.”

Actually, Joel, Hispanics, along the southern border in particular, came out in record numbers in support of President Trump. 

Just sayin’.

“Major pushback on how the progressive Left sees American history is also brewing.”

“Americans by and large remain patriotic, including the poor and working class.”

Those bastards!!!

“This patriotism stands in stark contrast to the prevailing view among progressives, which casts America as the intrinsically and irredeemably evil spawn of slaveholders and racists.”

Except the enlightened eight percent, course.

And just in case you forgot, or never knew, Joel, the democrats were the slaveholders and racists, and the republicans were the ones who fought to free the slaves and treat them like human beings.

But, like I said, it seems to be opposites day.

It would seem that cancel culture has a time limitation where democrats are concerned.   

“Hollywood, which used to promote the virtues of the Republic and the heroic struggles of diverse Americans. Now, dominated by people scared to contravene woke progressives, the big media companies have been pushing far Left plotlines and characters—and they have lost markets as a result. The devolution of the once glamorous Academy Awards into a minor, sparsely watched proto-spectacle reflects how much Hollywood’s hold is fading.”

“Of course, it’s not just Hollywood. Much more consequential—and potentially more disastrous for the Left—has been the attempted takeover of public education, and, with the support of the Biden Administration, attempts to inject critical race theory into secondary school curricula [and K-12 curricula as well]. This has created a mounting pushback in school districts across the nation, many of them voting to ban critical race theory altogether.”

Who are these people, and why are they dead set on dividing and conquering the American people?

Well, they lie in order to get elected, and then they ram their divisive agendas through.

It’s all very premeditated and destructive.

Remember…, their intentions are to put an end to our freedoms and gain control.

Why these peon Nazis believe they’ll have a seat at the table is beyond me.  

“Democrats who wish to remain in power will need to address critical challenges like a steady rise in urban crime and massive homelessness; citing systemic racism won’t clean the streets of New York, San Francisco and central Los Angeles from drug addicts, the mentally ill and the destitute. A failure to solve these problems will impact investment; Walgreens, reeling from thefts and disorder at its San Francisco stores, just announced its intention close 17 shops in the next five years.”

How exactly are democrats going to solve, or address, these problems their own policies have created, especially when they actually have no interest in solving anything?!!!

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Fauci lies and the fake news cries…, again, and again.

Honestly…, all of the lying and all of the fake news liberal propaganda is getting boring, and getting old.

According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News, “Fauci, the WHO [the World Health Organization], and mainstream media lied about COVID origins for more than a year.”

We all know the democrat playbook is lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

“Even as of now, the US government has not launched a broad and serious investigation into where the coronavirus came from,” although the Biden administration has now said they want a commission to launch a preliminary “investigation” and report on their findings in 90 days.

I guess they think this “cold case” is cold enough now.  

In my opinion, this “investigation” is nothing more than a delay tactic that will result in a lot of ambiguous nothingness, but which allows them to say they are conducting an “investigation,” of which they really don’t want to amount to anything.

How could this “investigation” amount to anything without the cooperation and the involvement of the Chinese government?  

Carlson continues by saying, “Actually, it looks like this virus did come from a lab in China.”

Ya think?!

The “gain of function research,” or engineering the virus to be transferable to humans, was paid for with American money (Like we don’t have enough diseases out there to worry about, we have to create another!)

In a newly resurfaced paper from 2012, Dr. Anthony Fauci argued that the benefits of gain-of-function research are worth the increased risk of a potential pandemic-causing lab accident.

Brittany Bernstein, for The National Review, reports that, “The Weekend Australian unearthed a paper Fauci wrote for the American Society for Microbiology in October 2012 in which he argued in support of gain-of-function research. Such research involves making viruses more infectious and/or deadly. Experts have raised the possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic could have originated from a potential lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China, where gain-of-function experiments on bat coronaviruses have been conducted.”

“Despite the risks involved, Fauci called gain-of-function experiments ‘important work’ in his 2012 writing: ‘In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario – however remote – should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?’”

““Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks. It is more likely that a pandemic would occur in nature, and the need to stay ahead of such a threat is a primary reason for performing an experiment that might appear to be risky.’”

Oh, so, “the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks,” Fauci?

To date, there has been over three and a half million deaths, worldwide, attributed to the COVID-19 virus.

I’m sure these millions of people would not agree with you, nor would their families, nor would the hundreds of millions of people whose lives were negatively impacted by the virus indirectly.

You are a scientific idiot, Fauci, and a loyal democrat Nazi of the highest degree.

As I have stated before, Fauci, you are the equivalent of a modern day Dr. Josef Mengele, who was known as Hitler’s “Angel of Death.” He was a Nazi SS officer and physician during World War II. He is mainly remembered for his actions at the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he performed deadly experiments on prisoners, and was a member of the team of doctors who selected victims to be killed in the gas chambers and was one of the doctors who administered the gas.

“Nearly a year and a half into the pandemic, that’s the new consensus in the American media. Boy, these things change fast. There are holdouts of course. Just today, over at the Washington Post, a China shill called Michael Gerson wrote a hilariously overwrought column entitled: ‘The right is dwelling on slanderous myths about the origins of COVID-19.’

“The radical right! Slanderous myths! Russian QAnon sleeper cells slandering the Chinese government! It’s pretty funny. The good news is, it’s almost over. You’re probably not going to see a lot more columns like that going forward. The nonsense is finally dying down.”

You really have to wonder why some of these “journalists” are so, so, so anxious to label this totally conceivable, and probable, scenario as “slanderous myths” and baseless conspiracy theories?  

Why are they sooo afraid that someone will give any possible virus origin scenario any traction, other than the flawed wet market theory?

“At other parts of Michael Gerson’s own newspaper, we’ve learned, they’re working on new stories about how the virus did in fact escape from the lab in Wuhan. So, the debate among serious people over the origins of COVID appears to be pretty much winding up. Pretty much every sane person acknowledges at this point that the government of China likely caused the single worst man-made disaster in human history.”

With the help of Fauci, the democrats, and democrat bureaucrats, of course.

“As if we need more evidence, over the weekend, the Wall Street Journal reported that the first people infected with COVID-19 were probably researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In November of 2019, three of them were taken to the hospital with symptoms. The Journal did solid reporting, but it wasn’t entirely new. Back in January of this year, the State Department issued a fact sheet telling the entire country the same thing.”

All while democrats and the fake news media were quick to label any concerns in this area as baseless “conspiracy theories.”

“They said the first COVID patients were not hungry patrons of the local wet market, reckless diners who gorged themselves on pangolin and bats. No, they weren’t.”

“The first patients were researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Clearly, they’d been infected at work, while working on the virus. If you were trying to understand where COVID came from, and you should be if you want to prevent future pandemics, that State Department in January told you a lot. Yet it was ignored.”

“In fact on Monday, Tony Fauci himself — the man in charge of our whole response to COVID-19 — told CBS News that he never even heard about the State Department’s findings on the Wuhan lab. He had no idea.”

“In other words, Fauci’s own employers, the U.S. government, publicly released compelling evidence that the virus that he has devoted his life to fighting, did not come food, but instead escaped from the very bio lab that Tony Fauci has sent American tax dollars to fund.”

“Yet somehow Tony Fauci didn’t know this.”

You mean he didn’t know he would have to admit now what he actually knew all along.

“He didn’t know it till he read this weekend’s Wall Street Journal. It was news to him. Bolt from the sky. Totally new information.”

“Can we really believe that?”

“No, of course, we can’t.”

“In fact, we have heard that on or about November 19, 2019, right around the time those Chinese researchers became the world’s first COVID patients, the government of Thailand contacted the CDC and Tony Fauci’s office to say its intelligence service had picked up ‘biological anomalies’ around the lab in Wuhan. In other words, there had been a leak.”

“We can’t confirm this, though we believe it to be true. We do know that several other allied foreign governments, including the governments of France and Australia, have gathered evidence showing the virus escaped from a Chinese lab. Yet, Tony Fauci, who runs the whole thing, didn’t know any of this? Come on. Of course he did.”

“Fauci has known from the beginning the virus may very well have come from that lab. Many people have known that.”

“Fauci just lied about it for more than a year.  In May of 2020, in an interview with the willing dupes at National Geographic, he told you that, as one of the world’s most eminent scientists, there’s really no chance COVID-19 was engineered by human hands.”

“Fauci said, ‘If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what exists now, it’s very, very strongly leaning towards that could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated. The way the mutations have naturally evolved. A number of very qualified evolutionary biologists have said that everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that it evolved in the wild, then jumped species.’” 

‘“A number of very qualified evolutionary biologists.’ Really? Where are those scientists today? Is there, for example, a single working virologist on planet earth who’d come on this show right now and dismiss the Wuhan lab leak idea out of hand as ridiculous — or quote ‘outrageous,’ as Francis Collins of the NIH once did?”

“We doubt there’s a single working virologist who would dare to do that. But not so long ago, the entire scientific and public health establishments did that very thing. So, what’s changed? Not the science. The science remains precisely the same. Only the politics have changed.”

To be more precise, the “political strategies” have changed. 

“And that gets you thinking. Now that we know what we know about the Wuhan lab — and we know that, of course, Fauci has known it too for a very long time, how could he not — it’s pretty remarkable to go back and look at Fauci’s public statements about COVID and the government of China.” 

“Keep in mind, he knew that it was at least possible that this virus came from that Wuhan Lab.”

Ha! Not only did he know it was possible…, it was all a part of the plan.

“Yet he did this interview with our David Asman with Fox Business in January of 2020.”

“Keep in mind that Tony Fauci was perfectly aware that China may have created this virus [with Fauci’s help, of course], and he knew for a fact that the government of China was lying, covering its tracks, and pushing the world health organization to do the same. Imperiling the entire planet as they did that.”

“You look back over the last year in light of what we now know, and you ask yourself, how does Tony Fauci still have a job?”

How is Fauci not in prison is the better question?

“Seriously. What kind of country gives this much power to someone who’s proven himself to be serially dishonest and incompetent?”

A country that is corrupt.

A country that is becoming more un-American by the day.

And a country that is “serially dishonest.”

A country with a government that is obsessed with power and control.

“It’s scary we’d allow that. Especially in public health.”

Do we really have a choice?

I mean, at some point, don’t we have to hope our government has some level of decency and accountability?

What am I saying!

Silly me!

“Meanwhile, and this is the most galling part, those few journalists and scientists who told the truth about what happened in Wuhan were punished for telling the truth. They were attacked by CNN, censored by Facebook, denounced by their colleagues. They were destroyed in some cases. Where’s their apology? Who’s paying into their reparations fund? No one of course.”

Professor Stephen Mosher is an expert on China and a very brave person. You’d need to be to say what he said in February of 2020, back when mass lockdowns seemed like something they only did in China.”

“Mosher said, ‘Well, I think it escaped from the lab because we have the Chinese government basically telling us that it did…Wuhan is the only level four laboratory in all of China. So that’s where you would put a dangerous pathogen, whether you were genetically engineering it to be a weapon or not, that’s where you would be experimenting on it. So it makes sense that the epicenter of the epidemic, that the lab there would be the source of that virus.’”

“So you read that, and you think that guy was on to something. He was smart, he was honest, he connected the dots. For his trouble, for telling the truth, Steven Mosher was immediately denounced as a conspiracy nut. Meanwhile, the liars and China’s shills got richer and more powerful.” 

“The WHO [World Health Organization], which followed China’s instructions and told the world that COVID wasn’t really transmissible by air, now has the full support of the Biden administration. In fact, Joe Biden rejoined the WHO, with no conditions. This is despite the fact American intelligence can prove that the WHO lied, and people died as a result of those lies.”

“At the same time, they’re telling us we need a 9/11-style commission to understand every facet of the January 6th events at the capitol. But the pandemic that killed three million people and destroyed the west? Which it has. Never mind. We’ll let someone else figure it out.”

You mean they’ll let someone else pretend to try and figure it out.

We have seen plenty of examples, over the last four years, of criminals stepping over and around their own political bodies and skeletons while conducting these “investigations.”

In the new world of Democrat Nazism, “investigations” are either witch hunts or cover-ups.

They have nothing to do with the truth or justice.

Tell us something we don’t know Joe!

According to Steven Nelson and Mark Moore of the New York Post, “President Biden on Wednesday spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to reaffirm U.S. support for Israel after a night of bloodshed with civilians in Tel Aviv sheltering from Hamas rockets.”

‘“I had a conversation with Bibi Netanyahu not so long ago. I’ll be putting out a statement very shortly on that,’ Biden told reporters at the White House.”

“Bibi,” huh?

I think only his friends call him that, Joe.  It’s Prime Minister Netanyahu to you Illegitimate Joe.

‘“My expectation and hope is that this will be closing down sooner than later. But Israel has a right to defend itself against thousands of rockets flying into your territory.’”

Reaaaaaaally, Illegitimate Joe?!!! 

Hamas is launching thousands of rockets from Palestine into their country, and you believe your country, and you believe “Israel has a right to defend itself.”

I would have thought that Israel would have allowed itself to be pummeled by rockets until it got permission from you, Joe, to protect itself!

“Israel has launched airstrikes against the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip to target what it says are caches of rockets stored by the Islamist group close to where civilians live.”

“Both sides in the conflict have reported civilian casualties.”

A conflict initiated by Palestine.

A conflict which should really be referred to as Israel responding to a Palestinian attack.

“Biden told reporters that ‘my national security staff and defense staff has been in constant contact with their counterparts in the Middle East — not just with the Israelis but also with everyone from the Egyptians to the Saudis to the Emiratis, etc.’”

Of course…, we know, Joe. Your “staff” are the ones who are really running the show.

“Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke separately with Netanyahu to reaffirm U.S. support.”

Translation: Blinken spoke coherently to Prime Minister Netanyahu, so he could understand what illegitimate Joe was trying to say.   

“The State Department said that Blinken, ‘expressed his concerns regarding the barrage of rocket attacks on Israel, his condolences for the lives lost as a result, and the United States’ strong support for Israel’s right to defend itself.’”

And cognitively challenged Joe was unable to express that?

‘“[Blinken] emphasized the need for Israelis and Palestinians to be able to live in safety and security, as well as enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity, and democracy,’ the State Department said.”

This should have been directed at the Palestinians.

It’s pretty hard to “live in safety and security, as well as enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity, and democracy,” when someone is bombarding you with thousands of rockets.

“Israel was able to shoot down many rockets from Gaza using the U.S.-subsidized Iron Dome missile defense system.”

Thank God for the Iron Dome missile defense system.

“Biden had earlier taken heat over his down-the-middle, approach to the escalating situation in Israel.”

And rightly so.

‘“These attacks prove that the Biden administration’s weak leadership is reversing the historic progress the Trump administration made toward peace in the region and has signaled to terrorist organizations, like Hamas, that they can get away in attacking our nation’s strongest ally in the Middle East,’ Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted Wednesday.”

“Both White House press secretary Jen Psaki and State Department spokesman Ned Price have fielded questions about the escalating conflict in recent days and refused to condemn either side, instead urging both groups to work toward de-escalation.”

‘“The president’s support for Israel’s security, for its legitimate right to defend itself, and its people is fundamental and will never waver. We condemn ongoing rocket attacks by Hamas [even though we support them with millions of U.S. tax dollars] and other terrorist groups, including against Jerusalem.  We also stand against extremism that has inflicted violence on both communities,’ Psaki said on Tuesday to lead off the White House briefing.”

Oh, yes…, we don’t want anyone inflicting violence on the terrorist group, Hamas!

Did anyone at the briefing ask her about the $235 million in payments the Biden administration recently restored to Palestine in April, and, how coincidentally, Hamas now has thousands and thousands of rockets at their disposal to launch at Israel?

That would have been a good question to ask, if anyone in the media there wasn’t a part of the democrats propaganda team. 

‘“Jerusalem, a city of such importance to people of faith around the world, must be a place of coexistence. It is up to the officials, residents, and leaders to restore the city to a place of calm,’ she said.”

Gee, thanks for that, Jen.   

“But Psaki on Wednesday said the talks were continuing.”

‘“We’ve had more than 25 high-level calls and meetings by senior U.S. officials with senior officials from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and our partners and other stakeholders,’ she said.”

Wow…, 25 “high-level calls.”

Not going so good then, huh?

Maybe you need to call in Jared Kushner, from the former Trump administration, to straighten this out?

Of course, not emboldening the Palestinians yourselves would have helped as well.

Just sayin’.

“Price at a State Department briefing responded to criticism that the administration is taking a ‘half-hearted’ approach to the violence unfolding in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

‘“I would respond to that criticism by noting that the United States is doing what we can, knowing that our ability in certain situations is going to be in some cases limited,’ Price said on Tuesday.”

Ha, yeah!  Limited by the pro-Palestine, anti-Israel, far left radicals in your own democrat party.  

 

“He said the U.S. is reaching out to its Israeli partners, Palestinian officials and the global community to defuse the escalating violence.”

They don’t need to “reach out” to anyone.

They need to implicitly let Palestine know they better knock off their attacks, or the U.S., along with Israel, will bomb them back to the stone ages, which really isn’t setting them back too far!  

‘“I think the international community [meaning the anti-Israel community] by and large is calling for precisely what we are calling for, doing precisely what we have attempted to do and to urge calm, de-escalation, and restraint on both sides,’ he said.” 

“Former President Donald Trump, who is considering a rematch against Biden in 2024, faulted Biden for the violence that began with clashes in Jerusalem, saying it happened as a result of ‘Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel.’”

Precisely.

You can always count on President Trump to tell it like it is.

“The Trump administration recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem following a decades-long reluctance due to Arab claims to the city. Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner led an effort that brokered diplomatic relations between Israel and four Arab countries.”

‘“When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked,’ Trump said.”

“In April, Biden reversed the Trump administration’s policy toward the Palestinians and began restoring as much as $253 million in aid.”

“Trump [on the other hand] cut ties with the Palestinian Authority in 2018 after he moved the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

“Republicans criticized the resumption of aid and expressed concern that the funds would eventually end up in the hands of militant groups who would arm themselves and launch a new round of attacks against Israel.”

Bingo!

And it didn’t take very long at all for this to happen.

It’s like Dr. Fauci and the virus.

It’s pretty hard to pretend to want solutions, when you’re the one who created the problem in the first place.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

In Maxine’s own words.

And this “Maxine” I’m referring to is democrat Maxine Waters, a congresswoman from California.

She’s a poster child for term limits.

She’s 82 years old, and has been in Congress since 1991.  That’s 30 years, or 15 terms in office.

That’s 15 terms too many, in my opinion.

I’m going to conduct a little exercise in “turnabout is fair play” here.

What if I was to direct Maxine’s own comments back onto her and her democrat friends?

That would be fair wouldn’t it?

Well, let’s see.

Maxine has said, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents [referring to immigrant children being held at the border],” Waters said at the Wilshire Federal Building, according to video of the event.

“We don’t know what damage has been done to these children. All that we know is they’re in cages. They’re in prisons. They’re in jails. I don’t care what they call it, that’s where they are and Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this,” she added.

Waters appeared on MSNBC later in the day to double down on her remarks, saying she has “no sympathy” for members of the Trump administration.

“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”

Sooo, if I said: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see [Maxine Waters or any of her democrat friends] in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents [referring to immigrant children being held at the border].”

“We don’t know what damage has been done to these children. All that we know is they’re in cages. They’re in prisons. They’re in jails. I don’t care what they call it, that’s where they are and Mr. President [Joe Biden in this case], we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this.”

[We have] no sympathy for members of the [Biden] administration.

“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”

So, that would be okay?

Maxine has also said, “We’re looking for a guilty verdict and we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd. If nothing does not happen, then we know that we got to not only stay in the street, but we have got to fight for justice.”

“We got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

“I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up,” she said.

Sooo, if I said: “We’re looking for a guilty verdict and we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to [Ashli Babbitt] [The woman who was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer during the protests on January 6th.]. If nothing [happens], then we know that we got to not only stay in the street, but we have got to fight for justice.”

“We got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

“I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up.”

So, that would be okay as well?

According to Chris Sommerfeldt, for the New York Daily News, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi backed up California Rep. Maxine Waters on Monday, arguing that the Democratic congresswoman ‘absolutely’ did not try to stoke violence by calling on Black Lives Matter protesters to ‘get more confrontational’ if ex-Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin is acquitted of killing George Floyd.”

So, then Nancy shouldn’t have any problems with my comments either, right? 

But didn’t she believe what President Trump said on 01/06/21, which was far less inflammatory, was instigating an insurrection, and worthy of impeachment?

Just sayin’.     

“Waters, a lightning rod for right-wing criticism, has come under fire from conservatives over making the heated remark while attending a protest in Minnesota over the weekend — but Pelosi told reporters that Republicans are taking her comments out of context.”

“Out of context?

And, what context would that be?

The context of a crazy, old, racist, cognitively challenged, liberal? 

Well, I suppose, Nancy Pelosi fits that mold as well!

No justice for Ashli Babbitt.

Tucker Carlson, of Fox News, says, “America is now one nation with two very different justice systems.”

I would say this has been the case for quite a few years now!

“The people in power crack down on their enemies and give their allies a soft landing.”

“The ironically-named ‘Civil Rights Division’ of the Biden Justice [InJustice] Department announced Wednesday [4/14/21] there will be no charges brought against the man who shot and killed protester Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol back in January. No one who pays attention was surprised to hear this.”

If it was a black woman, or a liberal protester, who got shot by a white cop, there damn sure would be charges being brought, and lynch mobs forming, just like in Minnesota these days.  

Just sayin’.

Please see my prior blogs on this matter for a better frame of reference:

https://mrericksonrules.com/2021/03/17/wheres-the-justice-for-ashli-babbitt/

 “In cases like this, the benefit of the doubt usually does go to law enforcement, and as we’ve often said, we’re fine with that. It should. But still, in a free society, the rest of us have a right to know roughly what happened. In this case, who shot Ashli Babbitt and why?”

You forget, Tucker, that the new deep state “Gestapo” doesn’t have to answer to anybody. 

“No one will tell us. The Biden administration says the man who killed Babbitt is a Capitol Hill police officer, and he did the right thing. That’s all they’ve said.”

“Did the right thing?”

“Did the right thing” where?

Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, Communist China, North Korea?

Does the United States fit in with this group now?

“We know that Ashli Babbitt was short, female [an Air Force veteran] and unarmed. There’s no evidence the officer who killed her gave any kind of verbal warming before he pulled the trigger. Is that standard procedure?”

No.

“We’d imagined the rules of engagement for federal agents limited the use of deadly force to situations where law enforcement has reason to believe they or the people around them are in imminent danger of being harmed. You can’t just shoot people without warning because they’re in the wrong place. That’s not allowed.”

“Except now, apparently, it is allowed.”

“When did these rules change?”

When the Democrat Nazi Party assumed power.

“And, once again, who exactly shot Ashli Babbitt? Journalists exist to ask questions like these, but they’re not.”

“The Washington Post wrote a long story about the DOJ’s [Ha! You the “J” in DOJ stands for justice?!] announcement in the case and never raised a single one of these questions. The Post didn’t name the shooter or even acknowledge that the government is withholding his name.” 

Why would the government be able to withhold his name?

How is the government able to withhold his name?

‘“Authorities determined that there was insufficient evidence to prove Babbitt’s civil rights were violated,’ the Post declared. That was it. The rest of the piece was a personal attack on Ashli Babbitt and her political views. She deserved to die. That was the point of the Washington Post story.”

Regardless of whether her civil rights were violated or not [they were], she was murdered by a Capitol police officer, and there’s plenty of evidence to prove that.

This officer has obviously been offered protection as long as he keeps his mouth shut, concerning the circumstances of their response to the protesters and the shooting itself.     

“How amazing to read something like this, especially now. Eleven hundred miles from Washington, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, a police officer accidentally reached for her gun instead of a Taser and killed a man called Daunte Wright. It was a tragedy, as all shootings are. But we know that officer’s name because every news organization in the country printed it immediately. She has now resigned and is facing charges. Her mugshot is all over the Internet. Two nights ago, a mob showed up at her house, forcing her to flee.”

Quite a difference between how the two cases are being handled.  

Like Tucker said, “America is now one nation with two very different justice systems,” although neither is affording any justice.

“She’s not the only one. Last August, a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot a man called Jacob Blake. Remember that? Riots erupted immediately. Yesterday, that officer was cleared of all charges. When that story broke, NPR put that police officer’s name and photograph on the front of their website.”

“So that’s the standard, except in this case where they are still hiding the identity of the man who shot Ashli Babbitt.”

Ashli, of course, was white, a conservative, and a Trump supporter, deeming her unworthy of any rights or consideration at all…, just like a Jew back in the days of the Nazis and the Third Reich.  

“Sensing a theme here? The standards that big news organizations use to cover shootings depend entirely on the political views of the people who get shot. When The Washington Post doesn’t like the candidates you vote for, they suppress the details of the case. In the case of Ashli Babbitt, we’d know next to nothing about how she died, and we wouldn’t know anything if her shooting hadn’t been captured on video by people who don’t work at the Washington Post.” 

“One of those people is a video editor from Texas called Samuel Montyoa. Montoya was in the U.S. Capitol that day. Montoya doesn’t look much like a White supremacist, and he has no criminal history that we’re aware of. On Jan. 6, Samuel Montoya took what may be the clearest video of Ashli Babbitt’s death:

https://mssl.fwmrm.net/m/1/382114/77/9982029/21NFM134830H_ENT_MEZZ_HULU_2968404_578.mp4

“When you watch the video, there are a lot of things to notice. Ashli Babbitt had no weapon. She wasn’t attacking anyone. She couldn’t attack anyone, because she was climbing through a window at the moment she was shot. But what’s most striking is that several Capitol Hill police officers in paramilitary gear were standing directly behind Babbitt when she was killed. They were carrying what Joe Biden refers to as weapons of war — loaded AR-15s.”

In addition, as you watch the video, you can see, initially, there are three Capitol police officers standing between the group of protesters in the hallway and the doors.

At this point, everything seems to be relatively under control.  Then for some reason the three officers abandon their position in front of the doors and move behind the group, seemingly allowing, or even inviting, the protesters to have their way with the doors.

Then, you can see the officer on the other side of the doors, who is black, step out and shoot Ashli Babbitt.

The officer shoots at Ashli Babbitt, who is in a crowed of people, with the three other armed officers directly behind her!

The three officers behind Ashli apparently didn’t think she was a threat.

They didn’t lift a finger to stop what was going on.

And anyone of those three could have been very easily hit by the officer firing the shot as well.

Even if Ashli did manage to get through the doors, what was she going to do that justified her being killed?   

Tucker continues, “So, tell us again how Ashli Babbitt posed an imminent physical threat to anyone when she was shot. She didn’t. Samuel Montoya’s footage proves it. And we’re grateful we have that tape. If we didn’t, The New York Times would be telling us that Ashli Babbitt was beating people to death with a fire extinguisher when she was killed.  Thanks to Samuel Montoya, the New York Times can’t claim that.”

The story about the guy beating an officer with a fire extinguisher turned out to be made up propaganda as well.

“We’d love to have Montoya on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ to describe what he saw that day, but we can’t do that, because he’s in jail.”

“Yesterday, a large group of armed federal agents showed up at his house in Austin. They smashed Montoya’s front door, confiscated his electronic devices and threw him in jail.”

Sounds like the new democrat “Gestapo” to me!

“He’s behind bars right now.  What was his crime?” 

“Well, to find out, we read the Biden administration’s arrest warrant application. The FBI says it began investigating Montoya after one of his family members provided ‘proof that Montoya was physically inside the U.S. Capital near the shooting of a woman on January 6, 2021.’ To be clear, Montoya didn’t shoot the woman. He just happened to be nearby.”

So, the guy who took the video of the shooting is arrested, but the guy who actually did the shooting wasn’t?

“But wait a second. Weren’t there plenty of journalists inside the Capitol on Jan. 6? According to CNN, yes there were. CNN ran a piece telling us that, ‘Congressional reporters became the country’s eyes and ears as rioters stormed Capitol Hill.’ So why hasn’t the FBI arrested the people CNN identified in its story — the photographers from Getty, the political reporters from NBC, the congressional correspondents from CNN and the AP?”

Those people were all authorized to be there by the democrat “Gestapo,” silly! That’s why.  

“Well, that’s a good question. The FBI explains why in the warrant affidavit. ‘At times during the video, Montoya describes himself to others inside the Capitol Building as a “reporter” or “journalist” as he attempts to get through crowds.’ And yet, the FBI concludes, ‘The director of the Congressional press galleries within the Senate Press office did a name check on Samuel Christopher Montoya and confirmed that no one by that name has Congressional press credentials as an individual, or via any other organizations.’”

The nerve of this individual to “identify” himself as a reporter!!!

Form the firing squad immediately!

“So, that’s the standard. If the U.S. Congress’s credentialing office says that you’re not a journalist, you’re not a journalist. Did Samuel Montoya have strong personal political views? Apparently, he did. But you may have noticed that’s not so unusual in journalism right now. So why is journalist Samuel Montoya behind bars tonight? Well, he committed a crime? ‘Interfering with government business.’ In other words, trespassing. If this happened in Ukraine, what are the chances NBC News would describe Samuel Montoya as a ‘dissident journalist,’ and then describe Ashli Babbitt an ‘unarmed pro-democracy demonstrator?’ The chances are roughly 100%.”

“But this is America, and they’re not saying that. Instead they’re telling us that Ashli Babbitt deserved to die.”

“Joy Reid, of MSNBC, said, ‘She embraced conspiracy theories. Her name was Ashli Babbitt, 35 years old. She tweeted about Pizzagate. She tweeted thousands of tweets to Fox News hosts. She engaged [on] social media with the conspiracy news Internet site Info Wars. In 2020, she began to tweet with QAnon accounts and use QAnon hashtags.’”

“Oh, see, not a pro-democracy demonstrator, not an unarmed military veteran. So, she sent tweets to Fox News hosts. No problem. Ashli Babbitt got what she deserved.”

“What’s amazing is not simply the grotesque cruelty of assessments like that — a young women is shot to death and the media applaud — but what’s more amazing is the contrast between this and the coverage of other violence that’s now in progress.”

“Tuesday night, Biden voters burned a police building in Portland, Oregon. Did you know that? Probably not, it didn’t get much coverage.” 

“In the wake of Daunte Wright’s death Sunday, riots broke out all over the country, in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Minneapolis.”

“People were stealing stuff off store shelves, but don’t call it looting. It’s a peaceful demonstration. We know that because the mayor of Brooklyn Center, Mike Elliott, told us so. Tuesday night, Mayor Elliott tweeted a picture of himself on the scene.”

‘“Earlier this evening, I had the opportunity to go talk to these peaceful protesters,’ he wrote. ‘Our city is calm now.’”

“Here’s the funny thing: the mayor’s wearing a Kevlar helmet in the picture, which was not taken in Syria, but in his own town. That’s how peaceful it is. He was wearing a Kevlar helmet. Whatever else he is, Mike Elliott isn’t a very effective liar.”

“Laws have no meaning if they’re not applied equally. When they are not applied equally, they are not even laws. They’re just tools of political persecution. You don’t want to live in a country like that, even if the people you don’t like are the ones being persecuted.”

“Rashida Tlaib does want to live like that. Tlaib is a member of Congress, so her security is never in doubt. She’s protected by bodyguards, weapons of war, and now thousands of federal troops you’re paying for. She’s fine. But in your neighborhood, she’d like to see the police eliminated.”

‘“No more policing, incarceration, and militarization,’ Tlaib wrote on Twitter this week. ‘It can’t be reformed.’”

“Again, militarization is fine if the military is protecting her. She’s got federal troops. But not for you. You get mob rule. We’re not making this up, we’re not misquoting her. She’s demanding this in public as a member of Congress. Many are.”

“A panel of privileged people tell you to abolish the police. But they’re not saying actually abolish the police. We often claim they are, but listen very carefully. They say they want to abolish American policing as it currently exists. And that raises the question: how does policing currently exist?”

“Here’s how: local communities get to control it. So, the cops walking down your street, you hired them. That’s what Rashida Tlaib doesn’t like. That’s what offends MSNBC. The thing they hate about it is that they don’t control it. They can’t use your local police department to punish you for your political views. For that, they have to go to the FBI. It drives them crazy.” 

“Abolishing the police doesn’t mean getting rid of people with guns. It merely and specifically means stripping you of any control over local law enforcement. It’s just a more ambitious form of gun control, meant to disempower the citizenry, not protect them. When your police department answers to them, things will be very different.” 

“To get a sense of how different, take a look at what the Biden administration is doing in the state of Oregon. In the past few days, federal prosecutors have essentially dropped half a dozen federal felony cases that arose from those famous riots in Portland last summer. The feds reached non-prosecution agreements, which ensure that people who committed felonies will walk away with no criminal record of any kind.”

“What are the defendants in Oregon accused of doing? More than trespassing.”

“One of them, a woman called Alexandra Eutin, was charged with beating a Portland police officer in the head with a wooden shield while he was trying to make an arrest.”

“Now that’s bad, obviously. But it’s not quite as bad as, say, voting for Donald Trump, or walking around the Capitol building with a camera. Alexandra Eutin won’t have a criminal record by the end of this. Samuel Montoya could spend the next seven years in jail.”

“You see what’s going on. Two systems of justice — one for the allies of the people in charge, and a very different one for their enemies. These aren’t traditional liberals. They’re not calling for a peaceful utopia where no one uses violence. This isn’t the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. That was the old liberalism. We used to make fun of it, when it was going on. We could use a lot more of it now. This stuff is scary.”

Agreed.

This stuff is very scary.

Our country is being hijacked right before our eye by “the deep state,” a razor thin majority in the House of Representatives, no majority in the Senate, and an illegitimate president.

Gun Laws 101.

Class is now in session!

Here is my third public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Gun Laws 101.”

Okay…, well, let’s get the class rolling.

Are you ready?

Here we go.

The first thing we have to recognize is that CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Again…, CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

So, for our democrat friends, especially Illegitimate Joe, Cackling Kamala, Crazy Nancy Pelosi, and Upchuck Schumer…, here is the breaking news:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Did you get that, Joe, Kamala, Nancy, Chuck, along with the rest of your clueless democrat friends?

And truthfully, there are some clueless, establishment republicans who need reminding as well.

So, just in case you missed it:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

The only people any gun laws you pass will have any effect on are the law-abiding gun owners who are not the problem in the first place.

Again:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

Okay, so, back to addressing my students.

So, whenever we hear these disingenuous politicians pontificating on the new gun laws they are proposing, just be aware that it is a bunch of hot air that will do absolutely nothing, regarding gun violence in our country.

NOTHING.

CRIMINALS DO NOT BUY THEIR GUNS AT DICK’S SPORTING GOODS, BASS PRO SHOPS, OR CABELAS.

CRIMINALS USE STOLEN GUNS OR GUNS THEY GET ILLEGALLY OFF THE BLACK MARKET.

So, the politicians can make legally buying a firearm as difficult as they want, but these added requirements only make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase a gun.

THESE ADDED ROAD BLOCKS TO BUYING A GUN HAVE NO EFFECT ON CRIMINALS OBTAINING A WEAPON.

NONE.

The ironic part of this whole issue is that we already have plenty of gun laws on the books to deter gun violence.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COURTS DON’T PROPERLY ENFORCE THE LAW!

OVER 75% OF PEOPLE WHO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS!

PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF CIRCULATION AND PUT AWAY FOR A LONG TIME.

WE HAVE TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT IF YOU USE A GUN ILLEGALLY, YOU WILL NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO AGAIN.

It is not hard to figure out, that if we do this, within a few years, the rate of crime involving a weapon will go way down.

WAY DOWN.

Gun laws are there to protect law-abiding citizens.

IF THE COURT SYSTEM CHOOSES TO TREAT GUN CRIME LIGHTLY, THEY DO SO AT THE EXPENSE OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMES AGANST SOCIETY AS WELL.  

So, do we really need any new gun laws?

No.

IF THE POLITICIANS REALLY WANT TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE, ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS DEMAND THAT OUR CURRENT LAWS ARE ENFORCED, AND THAT USING A GUN ILLEGALLY WILL BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

The sad part is they already know this, but they knowingly choose to put the “rights” of criminals ahead of the rights of the victims and law-abiding citizens, like you and me.

They make sure they’re protected though.

It’s the ultimate challenge a free society has to face.

The laws that allow us to enjoy freedom are the same laws that allow the haters of America’s freedoms to attack our freedom.  

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

Hey…, I’m just trying to do my part!

CNN is fake news?! No way! Way!!!

Mark Moore, for the New York Post, reports that, “A CNN staffer boasts to Project Veritas that network peddled anti-Trump ‘propaganda.’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, claims, ‘If it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ during a series of fake Tinder dates filmed by Project Veritas.”

“Tinder” is a social networking and online dating app.

Do we love Project Veritas, or what?!

This is too funny!

What a moron…, bragging to fake Tinder dates how influential CNN and he were!

‘“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100​ percent going to say it, and I 100​ percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ Chester said, adding that he came to work at CNN because he ‘​wanted to be a part of that.’”

‘“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was.’”

Many of us were already aware of this, but for those who had any doubt, here it right from the horse’s mouth.

“Chester explained how they overdramatized Trump health issues by bringing in medical experts.”

‘“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to all tell a story that was all speculation – that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to – you know – whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. I think that’s propaganda,’ he said.”

So, he thinks that was propaganda.

Uh, yeah, Charlie, I think you’re correct there.

Definitely propaganda.

“Asked by the ​sleuth if he and CNN were concerned with Joe Biden’s health during the election, Chester said the network had that in mind.​”

‘“Showing him jogging is obviously deflection of his age and they’re [CNN] trying to make it like, ‘Oh, I’m healthy,’ Chester said.”

“The date asked, ‘What do you mean?’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN says the network was ‘creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about,’ in regards to former President Donald Trump’s health issues.”

‘“We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric​,’ Chester replied.”

“A source close to CNN said Project Veritas targeted Chester through the dating app Tinder because his profile mentioned he worked at CNN, according to Mediaite [a political website].”

“The Project Veritas employee, who was not identified and claimed to be a nurse, went on five dates wearing a wire, including the final one at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood.”

Ha!

These people are better than the FBI!  

“Chester told his ‘date’ he would be fine with it if Biden died, because he thought Vice President Kamala Harris is ‘f—ing real.’”

I’m sure Illegitimate Joe will be glad to hear that.

‘“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, “You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. ‘And I’m like, He’s not going to f—ing die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b—h in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f—ing real, and better than what we got regardless.’”

Wow…, how gender sensitive of you, Charlie.

Yup…, “woke” Charlie, that’s our boy!

“Chester was asked if CNN covered Biden tripping as he walked up the stairs.”

‘“You talk about that briefly. You don’t make that a huge story,’ he said.”

“CNN did not respond to requests for comment by The Post.”

OH, REEEEALLY?!!!

Project Veritas is like the modern-day version of “Candid Camera,” only you’re not sympathetic for the person being caught on camera.

“During one of the meetings with his ‘date,’ Chester talked about how CNN also targeted anti-Trump voters by focusing on climate change, adding ‘fear sells.’”

Well, CNN must have been ecstatic about the pandemic!

‘“I think there’s a COVID fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN’s] going to latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is — will be open to it — we’re going to start focusing mainly on climate,’ Chester said.”

‘“It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be climate change awareness​,’ he added.”

Thanks for the “heads up,” Charlie…, I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that.

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, says the network’s goal was ‘to be climate change awareness​,’ following President Donald Trump’s election loss.”

‘“What’s that look like?’ Chester was asked.”

‘“I don’t know. I’m not sure. I have a feeling that it’s going to be like, constantly showing videos of decline in ice, and weather warming up, and like the effects it’s having on the economy​,’ Chester said.”

“​Asked who makes that decision, he said the ‘head of the network,’ referring to Jeff Zucker.”

‘“I imagine that he’s got his council and they’ve all like, discussed, like where they think​,​’​ he said​, trailing off.”

“He then said the new focus would be on a ​​‘p​andemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity.’​”

‘“​Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit,’ he said.​”

At the rate CNN is losing viewership, these days, CNN may not be around long enough to do much “milking.”

If anybody had any doubts about where CNN was coming from, I thinks those doubts have now all been laid to rest.

If you’re not already “following” me and you liked my blog(s) today, please choose to “follow” me, which will keep you up to date on all of my latest posts, and/or leave me a comment.  I value your feedback and I’d love to hear from you!

NBC is just “democrat propaganda.”

And in case there was really any doubt about this, Lester “the forehead” Holt and his “journalist” friends just confirmed it!

NBC is just one of the “democrat propaganda” entities, however.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “NBC News anchor Lester Holt received praise from liberal media figures after saying reporters don’t need to hear both sides of a story before determining the ‘truth.’”

‘“I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated … the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in,’ Holt said on Tuesday night while accepting an award at the 45th Murrow Symposium.”

Spoken like a true “fake news” propagandist!

He doesn’t have time for “fairness,” when he’s pushing the democrats’ agenda!

C’mon on!

And don’t be concerned with “determining the truth!”

As a public service (disservice really), we’ll do that for you!

And, boy, these democrats sure like giving each other awards, don’t they!

‘“That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention,’ Holt continued. ‘Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite.’”

So, our friend Lester, here, puts the fact that the sun sets in the west right there with “fact” (according to the democrats) that there is no humanitarian crisis on the Mexican border.

No “dereliction of journalistic responsibility” there!

Can we harken back to an example (one of many) when Lester “the forehead” Holt had a hard time determining “the truth” on our behalf?

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, in an article published January 24, 2018, “NBC News is reeling after ‘Nightly News’ anchor Lester Holt appears to have been badly fooled by North Korean propagandists — giving a cheery report from a ski resort in the Hermit Kingdom that looked to be bustling when it was widely known to actually be a ghost town.”

Huh.

A propagandist being fooled by other propagandists. 

Definitely not a good look there.

“Holt — who returned early from North Korea after scathing reviews — reported for ‘Nightly News’ from the Masikryong ski resort on Monday, a facility that is the brainchild of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and is typically empty. The resort, built to create the appearance of a prosperous nation, was largely deserted during peak 2017 ski season, according to multiple reports.”

On a side note, this was done by Kim in an attempt to show his country was on par with South Korea, which was preparing to host the Winter Olympics.

“But for Holt’s appearance, the North Korean government appears to have brought in skiers — wearing identical outfits — and staged the scene, something Holt did not appear to realize.”

“The resort is a ‘source of immense pride for a country trying to present a new and modern face to the world,’ Holt said during his report.”

“NBC News did not respond to requests for comment as to whether Holt’s unexpectedly early departure from North Korea was related to the embarrassing ski resort snafu. But inside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NBC’s more seasoned journalists were cringing.”

“Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un famously rode the ski lift, without skies, when touting his resort.”

“Holt’s coverage was overseen by embattled NBC News President Noah Oppenheim, who traveled with Holt and a camera crew to North Korea weeks before the Peacock Network will cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Now Holt’s credulous reporting has cast a cloud over the network’s ability to accurately portray the Korean peninsula going into the Olympics.”

This is they guy you’re supposed to trust to tell you “the truth?” 

‘“It’s been reported that the state-of-the-art resort cost the Kim regime $35 million to build, even with slave labor, while most of the country starved,’ the Daily Mail wrote. ‘It is a bizarre thing to prioritize in an impoverished nation with a ramshackle infrastructure where around 40 percent of its people are undernourished.’”

‘“Yes, NBC is eager to promote next month’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. But that hardly required anyone to travel north of the DMZ to film propaganda for a regime that enslaves 25 million people — and holds another 50 million southerners as quasi-hostages, under constant (if low-grade) threat of war,’ an editorial said.”

“As for Holt, the North Korean trip is his biggest debacle since he hosted the first presidential debate in September of 2016, when he was widely criticized for anti-Trump bias, so much so that ‘NBC Nightly News’ dropped sharply in the ratings when compared to arch-rival ABC, and has yet to recover.”

Remember, Holt sees no reason to “hear both sides of a story before determining the “truth.”

Flood then continues, “Holt then said ‘providing an open platform for misinformation, for anyone to come say whatever they want, especially when issues of public health and safety are at stake, can be quite dangerous,’ before declaring the duty of reporters is to be ‘fair to the truth.’”

Of course, that isn’t taking into consideration your own platform for “misinformation,” right Lester?!

“Critics of Holt’s approach saw his comments as essentially a dog whistle to liberal reporters who see themselves as the arbiters of truth and, therefore, can cover the news from a one-sided perspective with the approval of NBC’s top anchor.”

“Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson didn’t think Holt’s remarks apply to the modern world where outspoken liberals are often working as journalists.”

‘“In a better world in which the mainstream major media had a history of fairness and non-partisanship, Holt’s point that journalism inherently involves filtering information might make sense. This is not such a better world, this is a world in which the mainstream major media wears its partisanship on its sleeve, manipulating the news cycle to the advantage of Democrats,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘In the real world, Holt’s advice simply justifies media political bias.’”

“Left-wing New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen felt Holt’s comments were reason to celebrate.”

‘“When the chief anchor of one of the major networks agrees that ‘bothsidesing’ everything is bad practice, critics have finally won a point and they should celebrate,’ Rosen tweeted.”

Woohoo!

“Fake news” all the way!!!

“Rosen followed up: ‘Someone like Lester Holt is a center of gravity among news workers and if he thinks it’s okay not to both sides everything that can influence thought and behavior across a lot of desks.’”

“CNN’s left-leaning ‘Reliable Sources’ 9which are anything but “reliable”) media newsletter highlighted Holt’s remarks as a ‘sharp critique of bothsidesism,’ a notable turn of phrase from a reporting team that almost completely reserves its criticisms for right-leaning outlets, including calls for censorship.”

Censorship is, of course, is the bellwether strategy for a fascist political party.

“Outspokenly liberal CNN White House correspondent John Hardwood simply wrote, ‘Thank you’ to Holt.”

So, at least we know where all of these “jounalists” are coming from…, as if we didn’t already know.

“Holt replaced Brian Williams as anchor of ‘NBC Nightly News’ in 2015 after Williams admitted to lying about an Iraq War story he’d told for years. He was suspended without pay for six months but eventually returned as an anchor for MSNBC, NBC’s left-wing (you mean more left-wing) cable affiliate.”

Have the democrats lost their minds?!

Seriously.

The democrats have either lost their minds, or they are just operating without any reasonable concern for, or accountability to, the American people…, including those Americans who voted for them, for some ungodly reason.  

Orrr…, the democrats, and their puppet masters, may just simply be trying to destroy America so they can rule over the ashes.

So, why do I say this?

Let’s take a look at just the latest case in point.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “The Biden administration, earlier this month, awarded ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] an $86.9 million contract through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors [Endeavors is the name of the ‘non-profit’ organization] for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal.”

Sooo, they have been “expelled from the United States, but we’re putting them up in hotels in the United States for who knows how long? 

This only makes sense in the minds of double talking, misinformation dealing, democrats.

Reuters news service reports, “Some migrant families arriving in the United States will be housed in hotels under a new program managed by nonprofit organizations, according to two people familiar with the plans.”

What “two people?”

Who are these people?

“’Endeavors,’ a San Antonio-based organization, will oversee what it calls ‘family reception sites’ at hotels in Texas and Arizona, the two sources said.”

Sooo, again, these illegal immigrants have supposedly been “expelled from the United States, but we’re putting them up in hotels in the United States called “family reception sites?”

Wouldn’t you consider “expelled” and “reception” to be direct opposites of one another?  

 

“The organization [Endeavors], in partnership with other nonprofits, will initially provide up to 1,400 beds in seven brand-name hotels for families deemed vulnerable when caught at the border.”

“Brand-name hotels?”

Only the best for all of these, illegal, future democrats!  

“As the current contract stands, the cost to taxpayers for housing 1,200 migrant families for six months is about $71,000 per person.  For a family of four, that amounts to a shocking $284,000.”

Wait…, What?!!!

Each illegal immigrant is going to cost us $71,000 per person?!!!

And a family of four illegal immigrants is going to cost us $284,000?!!!

That works out to $394 per person, per day!!!

$394 a day!!!

What kind of hotels are these illegals staying at?!!!

Better said, why is this “Endeavors” NON-PROFIT charging the government so much?

According to endhomelessness.org, “Seventeen out of every 10,000 people in the United States were experiencing homelessness on a single night in January 2019 during HUD’s [The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s] Annual Point-in-Time Count.  These 567,715 people represent a cross-section of America.  They are associated with every region of the country, family status, gender category, and racial/ethnic group.”

So, on any given day, the United States has over 550,000 homeless AMERICAN CITIZENS across the country!!!

But Biden and his comrades are spending $394 a day to house each new ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT?!!!

That’s why I say, “The democrats have either lost their minds, or they are just operating without any reasonable concern for, or accountability to, the American people…, including those Americans who voted for them, for some ungodly reason.”

Getting back to this supposed “non-profit,” I think we need to learn a little more about this “Endeavors” outfit.

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn, from Tennessee, in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro [I never met a lie I didn’t like.] Mayorkas and ICE acting Director Tae Johnson, questioned the nonprofit’s [Endeavors’] past financial disclosures, and how the new contract funds will be used.  

Blackburn said that in 2018, Endeavors brought in “over $38 million in contributions and grants,” and noted that “IRS filings show that nearly $22 million or almost half of those contributions went to salaries.”

“This raises questions if half of the $86.9 million in ICE contract proceeds will likewise be allocated toward employee and executive compensation instead of migrant services or housing,” Blackburn wrote.

Ohhh, I get it now.

This “Endeavors” “non-profit” organization is one of these DEMOCRAT “NON-PROFIT” organizations, which really isn’t a “non-profit” organization at all…, it just says it is and all of the “swamp” rats look the other way…, as opposed to conservative non-profit groups who are examined under a microscope and held to the letter of the non-profit law.

Establishment republicans get their share of the blame as well, for never shining a light on these double standards and abuses of the law.

So, really, “Endeavors” is spending $25 a night per family, and keeping the rest for “executive compensation.”

Singman continues by saying, “Blackburn, though, raised concerns that Endeavors’ CEO Jon Allman did not provide ‘specific details about the contract’ when asked.”

That’s odd.

I wonder why not?

‘“It is unclear whether this nonprofit has ever previously managed a contract of this magnitude [It hasn’t.], housed a migrant population of this size [It hasn’t.] or served vulnerable children without putting them at further risk [It hasn’t.],’ Blackburn wrote.”

“Blackburn went on to demand an unredacted copy of the $86.9 million contract, and answers as to which hotels would supply rooms for migrants, which rates would they be charging.”

Now why would she have to specify an “unredacted copy of the contract?”

Think about it.

Why are democrats always trying to hide things and keep things secretive?

It’s because they are always up to no good.

The democrats always cry about “transparency,” but then they are anything but.

“Blackburn also requested information about children safety, questioning whether migrant children would ‘ever be placed in a situation where they are unsupervised by a parent or a guardian and left alone with an Endeavors staffer.”

“Blackburn also asked whether ICE was requiring Endeavors to conduct background checks on workers and volunteers, amid reports that the Office of Refugee Resettlement between 2015 and 2019 received more than 4,500 allegations of sexual abuse and sexual harassment against children in facilities. Blackburn said, ‘178 of the complaints were against staff at the shelters.’”

Hey…, this is a perfect set-up! 

I’m sure we’ll Bill Clinton sniffing around these facilities, along with the rest of his democrat, pedophile, friends!  

“Blackburn demanded answers from Mayorkas and Johnson by April 15.”

I’ll keep you posted.

My oh my, how Mayorkas can lie!

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Mr. Mayorkas had an advanced degree from the Clinton center for falsehoods and plausible deniability!

Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas made the talk show rounds this last weekend, and he was an absolute well of misinformation!

And that’s being nice.

Secretary Mayorkas started off by saying, “We have an asylum program that recognizes young children’s right to claim asylum, to claim fear from persecution by reason of their membership in a particular group. That is what the law provides and we administer and enforce those laws.”

He says, “We administer and enforce those laws,” not “the law.

That is the problem here.  The democrats like to “cherry pick” the laws they want to enforce and the laws they don’t…, like letting illegal migrants free into our country without even scheduling a hearing date for them, or without any type of processing or vetting at all.   

Regarding former President Trump’s policy of returning many of these illegal immigrants to their country of origin, Mayorkas said, “The prior administration did expel children, did fly children to countries where — from which they were fleeing, countries that did not have the capacity to administer asylum claims, countries that suffer tremendous violence, poverty, corruption, and other infirmities.”

Have you looked at the United States lately, Mr. Mayorkas? 

“Violence, poverty, corruption, and other infirmities?”

Do you honestly think these kids would be any safer in any of your democrat-run, “sanctuary cities,” like Chicago, New York, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, or Seattle?    

Mayorkas continued by saying, “The prior administration dismantled the orderly and safe way that these children could make their claims. It tore down the Central American Minors [CAM] program that allow these children to make their claims under United States’ law without having to take the perilous journey.”

This is not true. The only part of the CAM program that was terminated under former President Trump was the parole portion of the CAM program, which was terminated in August 2017. Individuals who were determined to be ineligible for refugee status were then considered by USCIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services] for the possibility of entering the United States under parole.

“We are rebuilding that process,” Mayorkas continued.  “It takes time because the entire system was dismantled.”

Again, this is just not true.

Secretary Mayorkas was reminded about what President Biden said soon after becoming President, “Vice President Harris and I and our entire administration, we’ll always be honest and transparent with you about both the good news and the bad.”

This obviously hasn’t been the case, here, regarding the immigrant children being held at the border, seeing that reporters have not been allowed to see the conditions under which they are being held.

To this Mayorkas said, “Let’s not forget that we’re in the midst of a pandemic and we are focused on our operations, executing our operations in a crowded Border Patrol facility where hundreds of vulnerable migrant children are located.”

Okay…, here we go.  When all else fails, blame the pandemic. 

So, it’s okay to have these kids crammed like sardines in these “facilities,” not even being tested for the virus, in many cases, and then release them into the country, but it’s not okay to acknowledge the freedom of the press and allow a few reporters in to see what’s going on in there?

Mayorkas then said, “We’re working on providing footage so that the American public can see the Border Patrol stations. And I would encourage you and other reporters to see the facilities under the control of the Health and Human Services Department where those children are sheltered and where they belong and where we are moving them as quickly as possible.”

Ohhh.  Now I get it!  They’re going to “provide the footage” so we all can see what a great job they’re doing!

Would that be similar to footage provided by the Chinese Communist Party, showing how well the Uyghur’s are being treated?

That’s what you call a deceptive governmental propaganda film…, attempting to paint the government in the best possible light while controlling the evidence and the narrative.

And this is what the Biden administration is planning on doing?

Can you imagine the outcry and the outrage if former President Trump had not “allowed” the press access to border facilities?

The press was losing their minds down there as it was!

Mayorkas stated earlier in the week that, “We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the Southwest border than we have in the last 20 years.”

But, yet, he, Biden, Harris, Psaki, and all the rest, claim it is all former President trump’s fault?   

Can I remind you that President Biden has halted part of Title 42 to allow unaccompanied minors to stay in the U.S. during the pandemic, ended the provision that asylum seekers must remain in Mexico while their cases are being heard, and suspended the Safe Third Country Agreements to share asylum seekers with other countries, all in just his first two months in office…, but the disaster at our southern border is President Trump’s fault.  

“Safe Third Country Agreements is misnamed. There’s nothing safe about it. To return people to the very countries from which they are fleeing persecution, Mayorkas added.”

Huh…, yeah…, why would you want to return these people to the countries they came from?

Maybe because they don’t belong here?

And then he tries to sell us all on the assumption that these people are all fleeing persecution?

Being persecuted for what and by who?

Try being a white guy in the United States these days, and you’ll see what real persecution looks like.

Mayorkas has also stated, “The border is secure. The border is closed. We’ve been unequivocal in that and we are operationalizing our processes, executing our plans, we are a nation of laws, and we treat vulnerable children humanely.”

The only things that have any truth to them, regarding this statement is, “we are operationalizing our processes, executing our plans.” The rest are flat out lies.  

And just recently, as a part of “executing their plans,” the Biden administration has awarded ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] an $86.9 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal, which will result in none of them being removed.

How about spending that money on hotel rooms for some of our own citizens, who are down on their luck, and homeless right now?

How about spending that money on treating the mental illness, or addictions, many of these homeless people are experiencing?

You don’t because these people already vote democrat, if they vote at all.

The ultimate plan here is for one party rule by the democrats.

Let’s make no mistake about it.

And they will do anything and say anything to realize that goal.

I don’t have anything against these immigrants trying to find a better life for themselves.  If I was in their shoes, I’d probably be doing the same thing.

But, believe me…, IF THESE IMMIGRANTS WERE ALL POTENTIAL REPUBLICAN VOTERS, THAT BORDER WALL WOULD BE SO HIGH AND SO AIR TIGHT, THAT NOBODY WOULD BE GETTING THROUGH.

Just sayin’.
