Elections

Media imbalance at its finest

MSNBC presenter Nicolle Wallace is a stranger to balance and perspective. Recently she said the coronavirus had a silver lining because it could cost Trump in November.

Wind back 2 years and she was happy that an economic recession was imminent to damage his chances for re-election.

As we’ve often said of the mainstream media. Journalistic integrity will only return when they love America more than they hate Trump.

#WalkAway hits 374,000 members

The #WalkAway campaign has hit 374,000 members as of August 13th. On July 14th we recorded 316,000. It is growing at around 60,000 per month.

Processing has been the problem according to the administration team. The stories told by those who have quit the Democrats all read the same tune.

Presented below without comment:

“…they also don’t want to hear my husband is conservative and a family man! They call him a coon and sell-out… My husband is Nigerian… his parents came to America for freedom of religion and freedom to work hard to make a living! They have achieved more than they ever thought possible and instilled it in my husband… they are diehard Trump fans because they know what it is to live in a country without opportunity, without freedom, with a corrupt government and police force. I wish more Americans would travel to see what an amazing place we do live in…”

“Thank you for the add! For 28 years I was raised to believe I would always be behind in the race because I am African American. Never did this sit well with me because deep down I knew it’s character and spirit that make you who you are. I’m thankful to Candace Owens and Larry Elder for opening my and others eyes/minds so we are no longer ignorant to the manipulation! God BLESS this beautiful USA ❤️🇺🇸. I wholeheartedly support Donald J. Trump 2020!”

“I am a Ghanaian born and raised in NC and now living in NY and I must say firstly, IM NOT OPPRESSED. Unfortunately a lot of my Black Democratic friends want to force me to feel oppressed and I dont understand the point. Maybe it’s because we have mostly lived in Democratic ran cities. Nonetheless, I too always voted Democratic because like most other Blacks living in the South, we just thought that the Democrats had the answers. Honestly, I grew up in a single parent home in the “hood” with 3 younger siblings so my mother depended on the system. In retrospect the Democrats help people like my mother stay on the “system”. I can honestly say Blacks have deeper issues than “systemic racism” that need to be addressed before anything. I voted for Barack twice and regretted it after he made some very specific legislations that hurt the Black community and my industry of business particularly. So when Trump joined the race for president, I figured a business man should be able to get Americans winning again. I gained a lot of hate from 95% of my people. So honestly I see why the Democrats don’t work hard for black votes. But thank God Trump did what he did for Black people without the majority putting him there. I’m living proof of the American dream and how with FAITH and Trust in God you can move mountains and overcome any and every challenge… and no one better touch my hat or I will utilize my 2nd amendment.🤗🤗🙏🏾🙏🏾 Live FREE or die trying”

I am here because I chose to #WalkAway recently (within the last six months).

I was always too to vote the issues. After reading that school newspaper I definitely identified more with the Democrats. My first time voting was Bush v. Kerry…I voted for Kerry. And I’ve voted Democrat every election since. I’m a woman. I’m a lesbian. I’m lower middle class. I’m pro choice. I’m pro helping others. It just made sense.

Fast forward to 2016. I voted for Hillary because I was terrified what Trump meant for America. I was scared my marriage would be dissolved (gay marriage was legalized in 2015, a huge reason I voted Democrat). I was scared gays would go back to being vilified. I was scared I was going to lose my rights. I was just scared. Three and a half years went by and my world didn’t collapse. I can’t say I like Trump, but he didn’t do anything to hurt my way of life.”

“This year I officially walked away from the Democratic Party. Being gay and Mexican I was taught that our president hated me. After I did some research past memes and CNN I realized that’s not true. I voted for Hillary and I regret it every day.”

“Hello all. Growing up I was told to always vote democrat because they care about black peoples rights. When I was old enough to vote. I didn’t bother voting because I felt the elections were rigged. In a way I realized I was right, because democrats have been rigging these past couple elections. Based on how their behaviors regarding this election campaign its obvious now. The first president I voted for was Barack Obama just because he was supposedly black. I didn’t pay attention to his policies. I just assumed he would take care of the issues black people faced for decades. Once I realized he didn’t do anything to help me or black people, but instead forced everyone to pay for Obama care. I knew I could not give him my vote any longer.

I voted against him on his second term. During that time I realized the republican party lined up more with my views biblically speaking. I’m pro life, pro gun, and like less government and less tax.

Today all I see is nothing but hypocrisy with the democratic party. I made it a point to personally listen to president Trumps speeches and realized how much the mainstream media misrepresented what he states. I also like that Trump doesn’t hide who he is and doesn’t cave into the mobb. Just like in American Idol everyone like Simon Cowell for being brutality honest.. Honesty and God is what America needs. I see a mass awakening coming soon. #WalkAway

Bob Lefsetz lets rip on Democrats pick

Bob Lefsetz has a very fluid writing style. We encourage you to subscribe.

He is no fan of Trump but today he let rip on the Democrats for playing defensively.

He opened with,

“I don’t get it.

She excoriates Biden in the debates and suddenly he picks her as his running mate? This is why people hate the Democrats. They’re squishy, without a backbone, so busy doing what’s expedient, triangulating, that you can’t believe in them so they lose.

It’s about passion more than dogma. One thing about Trump, you cross him and you’re toast. People are excited by Trump. Is anybody excited by Kamala Harris? If so, why did she have trouble raising money during her presidential run, why were her numbers so bad?…

…And Biden…Come on, he’s done nothing to counter the image of senility. Of course anybody who has followed his career knows he’s the king of misspeaking, which is why he’d better not debate Trump whatsoever, the Donald will kill him. Come on, he killed Hillary, and at least she had her wits about her…

….Yes, the Democrats are playing by the old rules. Afraid to move into the future they’ve literally jetted back to the past, with the aged Biden, and are crossing their fingers that people hate Trump just enough to push Joe over the top…

…And Trump knows you make news 24/7, you’re top of mind, whereas Biden is in a bunker hiding, trying to run out the clock…

…There is absolutely nothing exciting on the Democratic ticket, and no matter how many articles are written, no matter how many headlines appear about Harris, that’s not gonna change. It’s not like she’s a noted left-winger. She’s all about law and order in a country where Black Lives Matter pushed Biden to pick a black running mate. Yes, protests make a difference, without them would Harris be on the ticket? Doubtful. But the underlying problems in this country, starting with income inequality, where’s Harris on that? Opportunity? Bernie got all his campaign funds from the rank and file, he was beholden to nobody and what was Hillary’s complaint? No one likes him and he won’t play the game. Well, Trump won’t play the game and he WON! Hillary’s just pissed that she sold herself out and lost. And the DNC and the media couldn’t take the temperature of the country and realize that the Republicans had tarred Hillary’s reputation to the point where not only those on the right, but many on the left, despised her. If you actually spoke with Americans, you weren’t surprised when Trump won. But the DNC and the media are in a bubble. Give Trump credit, at least he spoke to the downtrodden, he even said he liked the uneducated. May have turned your stomach, but if you dropped out of high school and were working a minimum wage job, Hillary was not speaking directly to you! Oh, forget that Trump hasn’t delivered for these people. Once again, the DNC is playing defense, making it about the other candidate as opposed to their own. And you cannot win if you don’t score points. And remind me what points Biden has scored in these past five months…hell, he can’t even make any news!…

….If the DNC were smart, and it is not, it would unleash Kamala, have her make news every day. But they won’t, because they believe that’ll steal the thunder from Joe, who can’t even produce a drizzle. As for the Trumps’ previous donations to Harris…there are no more gotchas. Trump has won again and again and again.”

59% think Biden would quit midway through first term

Rasmussen Reports discovered that 59% of likely voters polled think that Joe Biden would not see out his first term as president. 39% who say it’s very likely.

Even 49% of Democrats think it’s likely Biden’s vice president will become president in the next four years, although that compares to 73% of Republicans and 57% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”

Black Americans the fastest-growing gun buyers in 2020

It seems that the fastest-growing cohort for gun ownership in 2020 is black Americans. There is even a #BlackGunsMatter movement.

The highest overall firearm sales increase comes from Black men and women, who show a 58.2% increase in purchases during the first six months of 2020 versus the same period last year,” according to Jim Curcuruto, Director of Research and Market Development for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

NSSF research shows white Americans increased purchases by 51.9%, Hispanic Americans by 49.4% and Asian Americans by 42.9%. During the first half of 2020, retailers noted that the overall makeup of their customers consisted of 55.8% white males, 16.6% white females, 9.3% Black males, 5.4% Black females, 6.9% Hispanic males, 2.2% Hispanic females, 3.1% Asian males and 0.7%Asian females.

The NSSF reported in a July Firearm Retailer Survey for 1H 2020:

  • 87% reported an increase in sales year-on-year
  • 92.4% noted an increase in ammunition sales.
  • A 95% average increase in the unit sales of firearms.
  • A 139% average increase in the sales of ammunition.
  • An all-time record of 10.3 million firearm transactions were processed by retailers nationwide in 1H 2020.

To dispel stereotypes of gun owners being mostly angry white men, the National African American Gun Association (NAAGA) boasts membership growth of 15,000 new members in 2020 so far. Pretty spectacular given the membership before George Floyd’s death stood at 40,000. NAAGA founder Phillip Smith said,“A lot of times in our community, we hear a lot of our politicians, unfortunately, say, don’t have a gun. You don’t need a gun…Well, I pushed back on that and say, that’s the very thing that we do need.”

It is also worth noting in 2003, only 13% of women identified as gun owners. In 2020 that number stands at 25%.

The WSJ reported that a record number of pro 2nd Amendment women candidates are running in November. Of the 220 filed to run, 50 have already secured their names on the ballot.

Is this a traditional Democrat vs Republican election or one about the constitution?

#GUNVOTE

 

State of recurring Disasters

Victorian Premier Dan Andrews has made a very strong case for rejecting identity politics in all of its forms.

It has now come to light that he and his team prioritized social inclusion over ability when selecting the private security firms to manage hotel quarantine during coronavirus. This is widely regarded as the source of the second outbreak. Guards with no training who ended up in some cases fornicating with guests under their watch. You can’t make this stuff up.

This is the same individual who refused to censure his Deputy Chief Health Officer Annaliese van Diemen for tweeting,

Sudden arrival of an invader from another land, decimating populations, creating terror…Forces the population to make enormous sacrifices & completely change how they live in order to survive. COVID19 or Cook 1770?

How is it possible that social justice took a front seat to a pandemic? Surely ALL Victorians would gladly trade identity politics for sound health policy prescriptions which didn’t lock them up for another 6 weeks.

Andrews was only too happy to have his police force fine people playing golf or fishing but didn’t prosecute a single person for attending a BLM rally which by itself must have also led to a spike in cases.

Here are some more pearls of wisdom we’ve noted over the years.

Years ago, the Victorian premier championed that he had 200,000 likes on FB, twice as many as Mike Baird in New South Wales. He also made the completely worthless boast that “Mike Baird gets no ‘Likes’ after 10pm“. Is that a true test of leadership? That only 3% of Victorians like him?

We recall Andrews pushing the Victorian Police to host segregated seminars for potential new recruits in order to accommodate their religious beliefs.

In October last year he said misogynist slogans on vehicles would lead to an automatic cancelation of registration. Presumably misandrist slogans were ok.

We noted the shocking state of affairs with the unionization of the Victorian CFA and its dreadful administration. Huge uptick in salaries, staffing and administration costs with a decline in equipment procurement.

Or the rorts for votes scandal.

Or joining China’s BRI without consulting the federal government on national security grounds.

We could go on.

The ability to steer through a crisis is the true test of any leader. All of Andrews’ flawed thinking might be nice to haves in the moral preening stakes. Sadly coronavirus has exposed them as utterly meaningless and outright dangerous. Putting forward ridiculous parameters for hiring put Victorian lives in more danger.

How he hasn’t resigned is beyond us. Despite being the most disastrous premier in Australian history, Andrews continues to get comforting support from mainstream and social media. Maybe he believes their propaganda that he is doing a decent job. Nothing could be further from the truth.

25% of Mail-in Ballots disqualified in Brooklyn

Nothing to see here?!

According to the NY Post,

“A staggering 25% of mail-in ballots cast in Brooklyn for June’s primary elections were declared invalid, it was revealed on Tuesday, as Mayor Bill de Blasio called on the Board of Elections to shape up by November.

More than 120,000 absentee ballots were filed in Kings County for the June 23 primary but about 30,000 were initially disqualified — and it wasn’t the fault of the voters, according to Rodneyse Bichotte, head of the Brooklyn Democratic Party.

Bichotte — also a state assemblywoman whose district includes Flatbush, Ditmas Park and Midwood — said the disqualifying issues included a lack of postmark or late arrival.

The BOE was still untangling the mess six weeks after the primaries and was unable to provide hard citywide figures on Tuesday.”

It wasn’t that long ago when 19% of ballots in the Paterson New Jersey election were disqualified following accusations of ballot theft, voter fraud and intimidation. That occurred soon after it was reported that up to 700 Republican voters in one New Jersey township received ballots listing only Democrat candidates in the mail.

Any wonder Nancy Pelosi is so insistent on there being mass mail-in voting.

We wrote about the outcomes from the Carter-Baker Commission which highlighted that mail-in ballots posed the biggest risk for voter fraud.

Well, well, well…

Largest Newspaper in Minnesota Endorses Ilhan Omar’s Primary Challenger

You have to hand it to the radical left of the Democrat Party. Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said that America’s economic and political systems must be “dismantled.”

What a way to show Americans a sense of deep gratitude for not only rescuing the Somali born asylum seeker from a refugee camp in Kenya but having a system that allowed her to be elected to the highest level of government in that same country.

Not so fast. Even in the woke state of Minnesota, the Star-Tribune – the state’s largest paper – has endorsed Antone Melton-Meaux, a primary challenger to Omar. The paper’s editorial noted,

“Melton-Meaux brings a different sensibility to this race, one grounded in helping resolve disputes to move forward — a skill this country is much in need of. Whether it’s health care, criminal justice or affordable housing, Melton-Meaux appears progressive, but pragmatic. While Omar wants to lead a movement, Melton-Meaux seeks to serve the Fifth District…

…Omar’s 2018 victory launched her into the national spotlight as the first Muslim woman and first refugee elected to Congress. But her time has been marred by missteps, including remarks on Israel widely regarded as anti-Semitic, an outsized number of missed votes, and campaign-finance issues. Omar has sent more than $1.6 million to her husband’s D.C. political consulting firm, E Street Group, and is herself the target of a Federal Election Commission complaint regarding travel expenses.

It is worth pointing out that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t make the cut of Obama’s NY house seat endorsements.
