The “debate” that wasn’t a debate.

During the first presidential debate of 2020, nothing was actually debated.

Questions were asked.

Questions were sidestepped.

Questions were ignored.

Statements were made.

Statements were questioned.

Accusations were made.

Accusations were denied.

Accusations were responded to.

Lies were uttered as attacks and defenses.

But it seemed that nothing was actually “debated.”

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “The first debate of the 2020 presidential election on Tuesday night was fiery from beginning to end.”

“President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden attacked each other in starkly personal terms for more than 90 minutes as moderator Chris Wallace worked to get both candidates, but especially [President] Trump, to follow the debate rules the candidates had agreed to.”

President Trump was obviously quite aggressive, but I think I have to give him a bit of a pass on that.

It is not often that The President gets the opportunity to face his accusers.

Since day one on the job, The President has been spied on, attacked on a daily basis, was forced to deal with the fake Russian collusion Mueller investigation, then endure an impeachment hoax, and then he was forced to deal with the Chinese virus, which was unleashed on our country by China and adopted as a political strategy by the democrats and the fake news media.

Now here, President Trump had the man right in front of him, who has called him a racist and a xenophobe.

Here he had the man right in front of him, who is a card-carrying member of the political establishment which has sought to discredit and attack him at every turn.

President Trump had a boat load of pent up frustration that was just primed to be unloaded on Joe Biden.

There was no way these time constraints or a moderator were going to get in his way.

“The ‘conversation’ ranged from the coronavirus crisis to the Supreme Court vacancy to health care. It’s not clear how much substance voters could get out of the debate, however, as it largely consisted of lines aimed to appeal to partisans.”

I feel that President Trump’s supporters could relate to exactly what he was talking about at times, while Biden supporters, who have relied on the fake news for their information, may have been hearing about many of these issues for the first time and may have needed a little more groundwork or background in order for The President to make his point effectively.

The limited time format just didn’t allow for this to happen in many instances, however.

In a nutshell, we had President Trump insisting the radical left was in control of the democrat party, while Joe Biden proclaimed, “I am the Democratic Party right now.”

“It was one of the strongest statements from Biden to date distancing himself from the farthest-left wings of the party. [President] Trump would continue to hammer this point throughout the ‘debate.’”

Biden constantly distanced himself from the radical left regarding healthcare, and global warming, while still managing to remain pretty far out there.  He seemed to be in “no man’s land” on a lot of these issues.

“During a discussion about global warming later in the debate, Biden said ‘the Green New Deal is not my plan.’”

I’m sure Joe will be receiving calls today from his running mate, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez regarding many of his statements.

President Trump clearly established himself as “the law and order candidate.”

And Joe Biden blatantly lied about all of the money his son, Hunter, had received from Russian, Chinese, and Ukrainian interests.

Joe lied about President Trump not acting quickly enough regarding the China virus, when in fact it was he and his democrat friends that ridiculed the President for taking steps to protect the country at the time.

And lastly, President Trump attempted to show a clear difference between the two of them, by emphasizing that Biden would close the country again and that the shutdowns are “hurting people both financially and in their mental health.”

Biden said keeping the country shut down would help the economy long term.

Well, there you have my take and analysis on the first presidential “debate.”

It may be the last presidential “debate” as well.

The liberals just can’t afford for any of these nagging facts to get out there anymore!

It’s all just a part of the plan.

“The plan?”

What “plan?”

It’s a plan that was laid-out by a guy named Saul Alinsky, who’s books,   “Reveille for Radicals,” published in 1946, and “Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals,” published in 1971, which provided a rod map to implementing an environment that would lead to a unrest, a dependence on government, and eventually a socialist and/or a communist system.

ademplan 11

What a peach, huh?

He really was quite a despicable individual.

ademplan 3

An individual who has been referred to as Hillary Clinton’s mentor, and an individual whose tactics were the basis for a college course taught by then professor Barrack Hussein Obama.

Interesting, huh?

I’d say…, very interesting.

These are also facts that these two held close to the vest, as they pretended to lean to the liberal side of things while really wanting the best for America and Americans, which really wasn’t the case.

ademplan 7

You can read these books for yourselves.

You don’t have to take it from me.

ademplan 2

But, in the meantime, let me basically lay this whole philosophy out for you.

Here are Alinsky’s eight rules for creating a socialistic state, as summarized and submitted by Garret Geer for the Miller County (Georgia) Liberal newspaper:

Healthcare.  If you can control healthcare, you control the people.

Poverty.  Increase the poverty level as high as possible.  Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you’re providing everything for them to live.

Debt.  Increase the debt to an unsustainable level.  In this way you able to continually increase taxes, thus create more poverty.

Gun control.  Remove the ability of the people to defend themselves.

ademplan 4

Government assistance.  Take control of every aspect of their lives…, food, housing, income, etc.

Education. Take control of what people read and listen to, and take control of student learn in school.

Religion.  Remove the belief in God in government and from schools.

Class warfare. Divide the people into the wealth and the poor. This will cause more discontent, making it easier to take money from the wealthy to support the poor.

ademplan 5

Yes…, this “plan” is real.

Geer continues by asking, “Does any of this sound like what is happening to The United States?”

“Alinsky has merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by communism. Stalin described his converts as ‘useful idiots.’ The ‘useful idiots’ have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in The U.S.”

‘“It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.’”

Yes my friends…, the desire for control and power has driven evil people to do evil things since the beginning of time.

Alinsky even dedicated his second book to Lucifer!  Yes, “that” Lucifer.

Hopefully Alinsky is enjoying his time in hell right now…, a “hell” he hoped to help make a reality for us all.

There are shadowy, evil, people who would like nothing more than to see this beautiful experiment of free people governing themselves to  wither and die.

ademplan 8

ademplan 10

ademplan 13

You could argue that these individuals and the “useful idiots” are well on their way to accomplishing their goals.

ademplan 9

But, all is not lost…, just yet.

Thankfully, President Trump has slowed their “progress” in a few of their targeted objectives…, specifically the control of healthcare, poverty and gun control.

ademplan 6

The “useful idiots” have added “racial warfare” to their repertoire, however, and they have been quite effective here.

These are all only means to an end, however.

At least free thinking, patriotic, Americans are now becoming aware of this “plan,” which enables us to put up a fight against it.

The New York Times is liberal? 

Yessiree, Bob!

The New York Times is as liberal as the day is long…, and then some.

But it’s not just that.

The real offense of The New York Times is that they’re intentionally deceitful, intentionally disingenuous, and intentionally propagandistic.

Those are their real “crimes.”

abari 4

Being just a “good old liberal” these days is now a position not to be tolerated by the radical left.

If you’re not a self-proclaimed, full-fledged. socialist/communist/fascist, you better stand back and stand down.

Oliver Darcy of CNN Business writes, “Controversial opinion writer Bari Weiss resigns from The New York Times, blasting paper for ‘illiberal environment.’”

abari 3

First of all, wouldn’t a “controversial” opinion writer be a good thing?

That is, unless they’re only tolerated as long as their opinion matches the opinion dictated by the New York Times.

“New York (CNN) Bari Weiss, a controversial opinion writer for The New York Times, resigned from the newspaper on Monday, blasting the institution on her way out in a scathing letter explaining why she chose to leave her job.”

abari 1

“In the resignation letter Weiss posted online Tuesday, the self-described ‘politically homeless’ writer criticized The Times for fostering what she called an ‘illiberal environment’ that she said was ‘especially heartbreaking.’”

FL: Bari Weiss in Conversation with Alana Newhouse during the Mi

‘“Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times,’ Weiss wrote. ‘But Twitter has become its ultimate editor.’”

The whole process was good for Bari, however, until the process swept over her, and swept by her, and is now proceeding to bite her in her own backside.

“Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions,’ Weiss added.”

Bite your tongue, you heretical sea hag!

The last thing the radical left needs is people drawing their own conclusions!

“News of Weiss’ departure was first reported by ‘Vice’ and confirmed by The Times.  Kathleen Kingsbury, The Times’ acting editorial page editor, thanked Weiss in a statement for her ‘many contributions.’”

Her biggest and best contribution being her latest decision to get out of the way of their Marxist propaganda mission.

‘“I’m personally committed to ensuring that The Times continues to publish voices, experiences and viewpoints from across the political spectrum in the Opinion report,’ Kingsbury said.”

abari 6

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

abari 7

“Weiss generated controversy for her criticism of aspects of progressive culture, particularly with regards to free speech.”

We mustn’t have any of that!  Free speech, that is!

“Last week, she was one of the dozens of writers who signed an open letter published in Harper’s Magazine that spoke out against so-called cancel culture.”

How dare she!

“Weiss faced criticism in June when the newspaper faced backlash over the publication of Republican Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, which argued for sending in military troops to U.S. cities to quash unrest that had broken out in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.  In a series of tweets, Weiss tweeted that there was a ‘civil war’ that has been ‘raging’ inside The Times between the ‘wokes’ and older ‘liberals.’ The tweets drew public backlash from some of Weiss’ own colleagues.”

“Weiss said in her resignation letter that she was subject to ‘constant bullying’ by her colleagues at The Times who disagreed with her views. She wrote that colleagues have called her a Nazi and racist and that she was ‘demeaned on company-wide Slack channels.’”

abari 11

“Slack” software is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face.  A “Slack” workspace is made up of channels, where team members can communicate and work together.

‘“There, some coworkers insisted I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name,’ Weiss wrote. ‘Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action.  They never are.’”

abari 10

Is it just me?

Doesn’t anyone else see the fascist nature of these people?

It can’t be just me, right?

You do see it too, don’t you?

“Eileen Murphy, a spokesperson for The Times, did not respond to the specifics of Weiss’ resignation letter.”

Of course not.

“But Murphy said, ‘We’re committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.’”

Nice statement, Eileen.  Too bad it isn’t true.

abari 8

abari 5

Brian Flood of Fox News adds, ‘“What this journalist has done is not just to indict, but convict The New York Times of outright censorship,’ Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell told Fox News. ‘If it doesn’t send shockwaves through the world of journalism, it’s because the world of journalism no longer has ethics.”’

BINGO!

“Weiss published the resignation letter she sent to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger on her personal website, saying, ‘Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.’”

And you not even a true centrist, Ms. Weiss. You may be a centrist, in a liberal sense, but not a true centrist.

A true “centrist,” these days, is defined as a person who isn’t smart enough to stand up for America, or just too lazy to help destroy her.

“DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that Weiss’ letter ‘provides yet another window to the mindset of journalistic ideology and advocacy’ at The Times.”

“While some were shocked by Weiss’ scathing letter, Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson feels anyone paying attention to ‘the Gray Lady’ [The New York Times] should have known the paper has a lefty agenda.”

“The Gray Lady” has a pimp these days…, and she’s a hot mess.

‘“Liberalism at the NY Times is illiberal and intolerant.  Water also is wet. Bari Weiss confirms what conservatives already knew, but liberals like Weiss previously refused to see,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘The vicious social justice warfare culture has moved from campus to newsrooms, and there is no place for old-fashioned liberals like Weiss.’”

Hmmm.  Sucks to be an “old fashioned liberal” these days, I guess.

Just to put The Times’ liberalism into perspective, The New York Times has not endorsed a republican for president since 1956!

That’s not once in the last 64 years!

That’s not once in the last 16 presidential elections!

That last endorsement in 1956 was for the incumbent, then President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

That includes endorsing Walter Mondale over President Ronald Reagan in 1984.  An election that Ronald Reagan won with 58.8% of the popular vote, while winning 49 of the 50 states, the only holdout being Mondale’s home state of Minnesota, and the District of Columbia, of course.

I’m offended, he’s offended, she’s offended, we’re offended, wouldn’t you like to be offended too?

So, how far does the right to be offended go?

aoffended 9

I really don’t think there is a limit to our right to be offended by anyone or anything.

Where I have a problem with these offended individuals, or groups, is when they force their actions of recourse on the rest of us…, which may in turn result in infringements of my rights.

aoffended 4

aoffended 14

For example:

Infringing on the rights of others to pacify their feelings of “offendedness” is not a right.

aoffended 15

Destroying public and private property which somehow offends them is not a right.

Defacing, wrecking, burning, and robbing public and private property as a response to their feelings of “offendedness” is not a right.

None of these things are a right, nor are any of them even legal.

If we all decided to take physical action against people and things we were offended by, or had a problem with, what would our country look like?  What would we be left with?

Let’s take a look at an “offendedless America!”

In no particular order, we have people who are offended by:

Meat eaters.

Gay people.

aoffended 10

Straight people.

Conservatives.

Liberals.

The Police.

White people.

Black people.

Words.

Merry-Christmas-Memes - Fresh Milk with regard to Merry Christmas Memes

History in general.

aoffended 20

Religion.

Our laws.

Music.

aoffended 13

Winners.

Irresponsibility.

Unaccountability.

aoffended 18

Our founding fathers.

And this list only scratches the surface as to what and who people get offended by.

aoffended 2

So, what would our country look like if we got rid of everything and everybody people were offended by?

I don’t think there would be hardly anybody left.

America would look just like it did before the Europeans discovered it and settled it.

I have heard humanity described as a virus…, a deadly virus.

Wherever civilization goes, it brings war, death, and confusion with it.

Don’t get me wrong…, I believe civilization is a good thing…, but it is corrupted and ruined far too easily.

We have just been fortunate enough to have lived through a relative high point of civilization in these United States.

But that civilization is most definitely coming under a more concentrated attack as of late.

aoffended 19

Civilized people still need to learn how to meet and defeat those uncivilized people who just want to ruin our civilization.

These people who just want to ruin everything.

I do have to say we’re getting better at meeting these liberal freedom wreckers head-on, but we still play way too nice.

Sleepless…, uh, I mean Clueless in Seattle!

Seattle, one of the most liberal cities in America, is on the verge of absolutely falling apart.

ablondie 4

It’s like an episode of “The Walking Dead!”

ablondie 9

ablondie 10

The city is being torn apart by those with a brain, and those without a brain.

ablondie 11

According to David Aaro of Fox News, “The leadership in Seattle appeared to be in disarray [Wow! That’s about as nicely as you can describe that situation!] on Friday after the city’s embattled mayor called the protesters who took over an ‘autonomous zone’ in the city ‘patriotic’ while the official who ordered police to flee the nearby precinct has refused to come forward.”

Say what?!

Wow.  These people really do think we’re all as stupid as they are!

ablondie 5

“Despite the slow-moving disaster and protesters calling on Mayor Jenny Durkan and Chief Carmen Best to resign, the mayor resisted the call and raised eyebrows when she joked about considering a ‘Thelma & Louise’ moment in an interview, referring to the 1991 movie about two women on the run from the law.”

Again…, say what?!

They call this an “autonomous zone.”

I would say it’s more like “The Twilight Zone!”

ablondie 7

“At Thursday’s news conference, Best told reporters it wasn’t her decision to leave the precinct, while Durkan also denied responsibility, according to ‘The Stranger,’ a Seattle-based newspaper.”

‘“We were asked to do an operational plan in case we needed to leave,’ Best said. ‘The decision was made. We’re still evaluating about how that change came about but it didn’t come from me.’”

ablondie 8

“Despite the fact that police cannot gain full access to the police station, Durkan tried to downplay the situation on the ground. She claimed that Trump was wrong to call the protesters ‘domestic terrorists.’”

Ha! Ya…, he should’ve included you in that group, Mayor Durkan!

‘“It’s simply not true. Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color is not terrorism. It’s patriotism,’ she said.”

ablondie 6

We would all agree with that, Ms. Mayor…, but what about the slight matters of looting, burning, vandalism…, oh, and forcibly taking over square blocks of a city, along with a police precinct that you seem to have overlooked?

“Durkan has tweeted that the protest is ‘a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world.’”

ablondie 2

“KIRO 7 reported, citing police, that demonstrators moved barricades near the police station and threw rocks and ‘improvised explosives’ at officers on several occasions. Best reportedly said that 25 cops were injured since the protests began.”

This is what Durkan describes as, “Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color?”

These people have all lost their minds.

This situation with Mayor Durkin, and many other of these liberal mayors as well, reminds me of an old “Blondie” cartoon that I cut out of the newspaper at the time and kept.

ablondie 1

The cartoon showed Blondie’s husband, Dagwood Bumstead, at work talking with his boss, Mr. Dithers.  The cartoon went something like this:

Mr. Dithers: C’mon, Bumstead!  Come out and have a drink with me and the boys before you head home.

Dagwood: Okay, Mr. Dithers…, just let me call Blondie first.

Mr. Dithers: Call Blondie first?!  Aren’t you the boss around your house, Bumstead?

Dagwood:  Of course, I am!

Mr. Dithers: Well, why do you have to call then?

Dagwood:  Because, if I don’t call, Blondie won’t let me be the boss anymore.

I know this correlation is a bit of a stretch, but I hope you can see what I’m referring to here.

The point is, Dagwood isn’t really the one “in charge,” and neither is Mayor Durkin.

‘“You [the police officers] fought [Actually they were prohibited from fighting.  It was more like just standing there, like sitting ducks.] for days to protect (The East Precinct). I asked you to stand on that line. Day in and day out, to be pelted with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened and in some cases hurt. Then to have a change of course [by their beloved mayor] early two weeks in, it seems like an insult [Oh, it was an insult!] to you and our community,’ Best said in a video, according to the station.”

“On Thursday, the crowd continued to occupy the six-block downtown area, named the ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone’ (CHAZ) because of its location in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.”

ablondie 12

“President Trump told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner in an exclusive interview Thursday that his administration is ‘not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists.’”

‘“If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle. I mean, let’s see what’s going on in Seattle,’ Trump told Faulkner. ‘I will tell you, if they don’t straighten that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.’”

ablondie 3

“It’s clear @realDonaldTrump doesn’t understand what’s happening on five square blocks of our City. Cal Anderson and Capitol Hill has for decades been a place for free speech, community, and self-expression,” Durkan tweeted out in response.

“Durkan has insisted that CHAZ was ‘not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection, but a peaceful expression of the community’s grief following the death of George Floyd in police custody on May 25 in Minneapolis.’”

Just because you say something isn’t what it obviously is doesn’t change the fact that it is what it obviously is, Mayor Durkan.

I hope that makes sense to you…, it makes sense to me.

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.

As usual, MrEricksonRules is here to clear things up and give you an unadulterated view of the situation.

By definition…, a “squad” is a small group of people trained to work together as a unit.

Most “squads” have a name, like a firing squad, a death squad, a cheerleading squad, a military squad, a police squad, a suicide squad, a practice squad, the “Geek Squad,” a rifle squad, the “Mod squad,” a bomb squad, a rescue squad, for example.

Now we have four of our freshmen congress women who have deemed themselves “THE SQUAD.”

That alone is pretty bold. It’s actually pretty ignorant and self-aggrandizing for them to believe they are worthy to be members of “THE SQUAD.”

“The Squad,” according to its own members, supposedly form a unified front to push for progressive changes such as a socialistic form of government, the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all (including illegal immigrants) and open borders, while opposing support for Israel, Christianity, and anything that could be construed as traditionally “American” or patriotic.

The members of “The Squad” are Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Okay…, so now we know what “The Squad” is.

Now what’s all of the commotion about “The Squad” as of late?

Well, it started when they basically accused Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against them and because they were people of color.  By definition, that’s accusing her of being a racist, isn’t it?

Pelosi then got into a twitter battle with them…, and not to be outdone, President Trump had to enter the fray.

He has since been accused of being a racist…, again, and a sexist…, again.

Rather than interpreting what The President said, and telling you what to think about it, like “The Squad” and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” along with the rest of “the swamp…,” we’re going to just look at what The President tweeted, so you can decide for yourself.

First he tweeted:

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

Then he tweeted:

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

He then responded to reporters at the White House by saying that, “If somebody has a problem with our country, if somebody doesn’t want to be in our country, they should leave.”

“When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said?” The President added.

“They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something.’ Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more.”

“Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!”

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country….”

So there you have the actual tweets from The President.

Can you see why they’re blasting him for being a racist?

Can you see why they’re blasting him for being a sexist?

Hmmm, I really don’t see it either.

I can see where he’s challenging their politics and their ideas, but I don’t see racism or sexism there.

I just see four anti-American liberal democrats who can’t defend their radical narrative, so they just lazily accuse The President as being racist and sexist in order to deflect the attention away from themselves, while attempting to devalue his remarks.

If you want to, you can “see” racist and sexist intonations in “Mary had a Little Lamb,” “Baa Baa, Black Sheep,” and what about “The House that Jack Built?”

He didn’t build that!

Sorry…, I couldn’t resist.

Rebecca Morin, of USA TODAY, reported that, “On Monday afternoon, the lawmakers responded to Trump’s comments in a press conference on Capitol Hill.  Pressley said the president’s recent comments were just a ‘disruptive distraction’ from a ‘callous, chaotic and corrupt’ administration.”

“Omar accused Trump of pursuing a ‘white nationalist’ agenda.”

Excuse me, but isn’t that a racist remark?  Just sayin’.

“While the congresswomen were speaking, Trump continued to tweet about them, ‘The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” [The Squad], but now they are forced to embrace them,’ The President wrote. ‘That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!’”

‘“THIS is what racism looks like,’ Pressley tweeted.  “WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify every day.’”

Isn’t this a racist calling out President Trump for racism?

Why does everything always have to come down to what someone “looks” like instead of what they stand for?

“Omar, who has been criticized by Republicans several times due to controversial comments she made about Israel, also criticized Trump’s online postings and Trump himself.  ‘Mr. President, As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States,’ she tweeted Sunday. ‘Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.’”

‘“Want a response to a lawless & complete failure of a President?’ Tlaib tweeted. ‘He is the crisis. His dangerous ideology is the crisis. He needs to be impeached.’”

Yes…, and in your oath you swear to uphold the laws of our country…, the laws that you are in charge of establishing.  Yet you encourage other politicians and illegal immigrants to ignore and break our laws.

“Ocasio-Cortez, who is a self-described Democratic Socialist, tweeted a thread responding to the president, saying that Trump is ‘angry because you can’t conceive of an America that includes us.’”

It’s not YOU Ms. Ocasio-Cortez…, it’s your dangerous socialist ideas that worry him.

‘“You rely on a frightened America for your plunder,’ she tweeted. ‘You won’t accept a nation that sees healthcare as a right or education as a #1 priority, especially where we’re the ones fighting for it. Yet here we are.’”

What?  AOC’s level of confusion is truly impressive.

It is the democrats who have traditionally employed “scare tactics” with seniors, women, minorities and the underprivileged in general.

Now…, adding insult to injury…, Chad Pergram and Frank Miles of Fox News report that, “House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress [from Senate Sergeant at Arms, Michael Stenger] on Monday after President Trump’s tweets and remarks about the ‘progressive squad.’”

“In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to ‘analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.’”

Well isn’t that special!

Yes…, by all means…, let’s all be concerned about “enhanced security” for our “open borders” congress people who have no concern about the security of their American citizen constituents, when it comes to letting anyone and everyone into our country, and then fighting to keep illegal immigrant criminals in our country by opposing federal law officers when they try and do their jobs to protect American citizens.

Only in America.
