Michelle Obama says she has a form of low grade depression

Pity poor former FLOTUS Michelle Obama. Apparently quarantine has left her with a form of “low-grade depression” because she has become dispirited by the coronavirus, racial strife and the hypocrisy of the Trump administration.

We feel for her having to suffer being holed-up in a $15m Martha’s Vineyard mansion.

We think she can solve for the racial strife anxiety by simply rolling over and speaking to her husband, perhaps one of, if not the most racially divisive president in US history.

Our favorite example was his speech to the Black Caucus ahead of the 2016 election which we wrote about in Sept 2016,

I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election.

Is it any wonder Joe Biden came up with “You ain’t black” or that blacks aren’t as open minded as latinos so easily?

Or when Barack Obama encouraged in a speech to military personnel at MacDill Air Force Base to commit acts of mutiny if so required after Trump won the election by saying,

“each of us has…the universal right to speak your minds and to protest against authority; to live in a society that’s open and free; that can criticize our president without retribution.”

Or the many land mines he left for incoming President Trump before he sat in the Oval Office. Abstaining from a UN vote with respect to Israel, expelling Russian diplomats and even signing a refugee swap agreement with then Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull.

Perhaps Mrs Obama would feel less dispirited had her husband shown some class by not turning the eulogy of John Lewis into a campaign rally. MLK Jr’s niece could lend her some advice.

Or maybe she could smile a bit more were it not for the huge list of scandals under her husband’s own administration?

Black conservative Larry Elder put a wonderful montage as to the hypocrisy of Obama when it comes to race.

Tucker Carlson excoriates Lori Lightfoot

https://www.facebook.com/TuckerCarlsonTonight/videos/329935388177167/?vh=e&extid=f7mE47VXcocafd9W

Tucker Carlson documents just how incompetent Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is.

No Mayor Lightfoot, your incompetence is the problem, not identity

Despotic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot let rip again at President Trump for his intent to send federal troops by claiming that he was just being mean to Democrat mayors who happened to be female. She cried that Trump “only wants to make us look bad.

No need for him to do that. You’ve done that on your own.

Lightfoot claimed she’s “getting it done” despite a huge spike in gun deaths and shootings. Her incompetence extends to the manner in which she filters out what she doesn’t want to hear as evidenced by her fracas with Alderman Raymond Lopez. She is also focusing on a census campaign during this time of crime.

She mentioned that Trump picked on Seattle Mayor Jenny “summer of love” Durkan who said that CHAZ was just a street fair. Despite the deaths and destruction to the block she only acted when her own $7m mansion was at stake. Could that be a reason Mayor Lightfoot?

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was also mentioned by Lightfoot as being bullied by the president. Didn’t she see Bowser get her head handed to her on a platter by Black Lives Matter for writing Black Lives Matter on the road outside the White House for “appeasing white liberals“?

Or Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Another target. She acknowledged that police morale is “down ten-fold” due to the limitations placed on them during the riots. Atlanta Police were calling in sick at record numbers. No surprise when the totally corrupt DA was essentially saying the cop who shot Rayshard Brooks should receive the death penalty.

What has gender got to do with it anyway?Portland’s mayor is male. He has federal officers in his city.

So Mayor Lightfoot, you may like to claim to be Chicago’s first black lesbian mayor but something tells us that if you focused on your ability rather than your identity your constituents might be happier. As it stands, identity seems to be all you have and we doubt any Chicagoans care about what goes on behind closed doors. They want an end to the violence.

Trump will make a fool of you. Make no mistake. But know it was a 100% set inflicted wound.

Americans let Nancy Pelosi know what they think of her

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, never one to shy away from full-blown identity politics, said, “Americans across the country are calling for an end to racial injustice and police brutality. Tune in at 11 pm ET for my conversation with Congressional Black Caucus Chair Karen Bass and Soledad O’Brien.

Note she is also prepared to speak alongside BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-proclaimed Marxist and the racist Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley who said, “we don’t need any black faces who don’t want to be a black voice.

We thought the comments on Nancy Pelosi’s Facebook invite were quite telling:

She is the cause

AMERICANS are calling for an end to the looting, the riots, the destruction to property, the loss of innocent lives, to the Democratic Party using the black community as pawns.”

“You are an embarrassing mess”

But what we are calling for is an end to people who hate this country!! We want to trade YOU for citizens of other countries who are thankful to live in a country where they love and YOU HATE! Let us help you pack!

Nancy, you and your minions sat by and watched Black-owned businesses being burned to the ground, Black-owned businesses looted and destroyed, and did nothing because allowing it to continue and keeping cities shut down to wreck the economy played into your evil plan. Now you want us to believe you care about Black lives? You are a joke.

“All lives matter!
Pelosi, you have guts and I admire you for that but the issue is whether Police Rules and regulations were wrong?
Yes, they were!
So, why blaming the police instead of those who had made those rules?
Police follow the rules, just like soldiers!
Why blaming Police officers for following the rules?
The rules were brutal!”

You said no to consideration to the Justice Act 3 weeks ago.
You refused to talk about it.
BLM Movement grabbed the corporate millions and ran with it.
Democrats ignored reform and change and went on vacation.

The BLM movement is a hate group, it’s the same thing as the KKK. They chose the name to make it seem racist if you don’t agree with them. This is called a Misnomer. It’s used the same as a loaded question, that many news anchors use, it’s used in a way that if you respond correctly, it gives the illusion you’re a bad person. It’s very deceitful, and wrong..
Cause yes black lives do matter along with white lives, brown lives, ALL LIVES MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well except pedophiles, screw them guys.

“We have watched the Democrat leaders kneel in the halls of Congress for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in honor of George Floyd, a black man killed at the hands of police in Minneapolis.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen police officer.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen soldier.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands upon thousands of aborted babies.
I have never seen them kneel for a murdered white, black, Hispanic or Asian police officer.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of black on black murder victims. 18 in 24 hours yesterday and 191 just in the first 5 months of 2020 all in Democrat-led Chicago.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of elderly people that died in our nursing homes as a result of Coronavirus decisions enforced by Democrat governors.
I have never seen them kneel or even recognize the attacks or deaths at the hands of violent protesters and riots still taking place today.
I have never seen them kneel or recognize the utter devastation of already struggling businesses across the nation.
Of course, what happened to George Floyd should never happen again to anyone no matter their color and especially by police who are supposed to protect us.
But WHY are Democrat leaders and even the mainstream media completely ignoring these other deaths and destruction? Don’t they deserve to be honored too?

“continuing to stir up problems instead of fixing them…..😡

There is no racial injustice and police brutality is rare. Democrats are just trying to divide us.

Sydney Trains proves gender discrimination is OK in the public sector

This morning we heard the acting head of Sydney Trains, Suzanna Holden, talk about hiring more women train drivers into the service. The job posting specified “women only.”

After much warranted criticism, the job advert will remove that wording. Let’s make it clear, the intention will remain absolutely unchanged. Male applicants will be discriminated against. Presumably because they aren’t “safety-minded women.

If Holden was true to her Sydney Trains mission statement she would focus on reliability, safety and service over pushing gender politics. Because all passengers truly care about is a reliable and safe service regardless who sits isolated in the train driver seat. What next? Does Sydney Trains require more transgender train driver representation?

If this was the private sector, the company would be fined, excoriated and people forced to resign for such blatant discrimination. It is against the labour laws. Period.

Yet Holden spoke at length about the importance of diversity claiming she was the first female to run the trains in 165 years. Why is that even relevant? Surely her skills should be the only determinant of that position, not her genitalia.

With such discriminatory attitudes she has proven herself already to be totally unfit for the role.

For more government based discrimination, please see our study on the Australian Defence Force. The data shows that trying harder to push women into the forces have had the opposite of intended effect.

As is so often the case with those obsessed with identity politics, their cure to stopping discrimination is to introduce policies that absolutely guarantee it remains. Even worse they can’t see the double standard.

Lightfoot the Lightweight

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is a complete lightweight.

As murders and gun crime soar across the city post George Floyd’s death, Lightfoot is focusing her energies on the ‘Census Cowboy‘ to get Chicagoans to fill in online forms. Could it be that residents are more concerned with stray bullets coming through their windows than indulging a mounted black cowboy carrying a ‘Census 2020‘ flag?

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called Lightfoot “derelict” to which the mayor responded to Trump’s spokeswoman as a “Karen,” a derogatory term to denote a white woman of privilege who has racist tendencies.

Remember when Alderman Raymond Lopez questioned the mayor about what she planned to do to stop businesses being destroyed and quell gang violence? She replied that he was “full of sh*t

Lightfoot is living too much in the limelight of identity politics to deal with the truths in her city. Residents don’t care whether she is a lesbian or black. They want an end to the violence.

Have black students demanded this?

A petition started by students at the University of Washington – which demands faculty staff mark black students more leniently – has gathered 26,000 signatures. Worse, the university believes it’s a good idea.

Nicole McNichols, UW Psychology Professor said, “Obviously, I support the petition and absolutely believe the accommodations it requests should be honored by all faculty. Students need all of the support and compassion we can afford to give them right now.”

What about Hispanic students? Don’t other minorities have a claim for leniency too? What about black trans students with disabilities? Should they get more marks?

If the students that signed up to the petition truly want to make it fair, perhaps the white students should agree to be marked down with a white privilege adjustment to atone for the sins of those they aren’t related to who may have committed crimes before they were born.

Ultimately, if these liberally minded students truly wish to stop discrimination, why demand a policy that actively encourages it? If they wish to stop systemic racism how does such segregationist policies help?

In closing, how many black students have demanded this? Were many consulted? We wouldn’t be surprised if many black students get frustrated at the basic tenet that these white liberal kids think without an artificial boost they can’t succeed on their own merits. That is about as condescending as it gets!

This is the perfect argument for why universities should be free. Absolutely no lessons about real life are being taught.

Rant over.

Good on Goya CEO for standing up to the cancel culture mob

Goya Foods deserves every success. CEO Bob Unanue praised Trump which caused several unhinged Democrats to openly encourage people to boycott the brand. How easily they forgot when Unanue helped Michelle Obama with her healthy eating initiative in 2012.

Failed Democrat presidential primary candidate Julian Castro wrote on Twitter,

@GoyaFoods has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations. Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products. #Goyaway

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) also joined in. She tweeted,

Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo.

The Democrats are clinically insane. So deeply entrenched is their hatred of Trump that even when an American citizen from a minority background exercises his free speech – which disobeys their doctrine of what he should say – they retaliate like this.

We think Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley sums up the mentality of the Democratic platform when she said,

“We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.

We truly hope Americans rally to the cause and boost Goya’s sales to let other corporations know that having the guts to stand up to the mob actually rewards their bottom line rather than panic that it might be boycotted.

These Democrats have absolutely none of the “right stuff” to run a country.

In California opposing a Marxist group is now a hate crime

California, true to form, showed its totalitarian roots.

A couple that painted over a Black Lives Matter mural that was approved by the city of Martinez have been charged with a hate crime. The release notes “defacing” with “black paint” which somehow relates to “systemic racism.” We imagine that given bitumen is black, that colour paint was the best hue to mask the mural.

Who knew that opposing a Marxist group is now a federal offense in California?

Unfortunately we had another woke District Attorney Diana Becton flex her political beliefs in the statement rather than apply the law objectively. Where have we seen this before? Three examples spring to mind.

1) Fulton County DA Paul Howard is pushing the death penalty for former Atlanta Police officer Garrett Rolfe in the death of Rayshard Brooks despite the evidence. How convenient that he is up for re-election and fighting allegations of sexual harassment and a toxic work environment. Also note that The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) has opened an investigation of Howard and his use of a nonprofit to funnel at least $140,000 in city of Atlanta funds to supplement his salary.

2) Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx ruled emphatically that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was guilty beyond doubt but dropped all 16 charges related to his hate crime hoax despite the unnecessary $100,000 cost to the Chicago Police. How ironic that Michelle Obama’s former chief-of-staff called Foxx to discuss the concern of the Smollett family. Foxx never recused herself on conflict of interest grounds, however the end result certainly gives rise to suspicions favours were called in.

3) St Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said she would find a way to charge the McCloskeys for defending their home with automatic weapons when 500 BLM protestors trespassed on their gated private property. Gardner said, “Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold [the McCloskeys] accountable.”

Forget objective judiciary’s when DAs are unabashed activists.

As an aside, all four attorneys listed above are Democrats that happen to be black. This is an observation based on fact.

We are confident that there have been activist attorneys of other party affiliations and races over the years. So much for independence and fair trials when DAs push for an outcome without the presumption of innocence. A sad indictment indeed.

Surely to end systemic racism, applying laws based on identity won’t be the answer.

Trump flips the bird at the self-loathing left

Just brilliant. Instead of cowering to the mob with political correctness, Trump announces he is building a national garden full of statues celebrating American heroes. Love really will “Trump” hate.

Liberal heads must be exploding. Basically the message to these self-loathing lefties pulling down monuments – I’m going to build a bigger memorial which unites America by displaying the country’s exceptionalism.

The softest part of any true patriotic American is a pride in its achievements, devotion to country and flag.

No doubt the left will criticize the people chosen to be erected on the basis of identity politics which in a sense shows that they really do like monuments after all.

Trump – master of the troll.
