Believe This Woman! Beverly Hallberg Exposes Dems Plan to Divide Women and Men and the Lies Told About Kavanaugh

With so many shrieking harpies insisting Kavanaugh is guilty as charged without any evidence it's good to hear the point of view from SANE women:

And remember, she's a woman and according to Democrats, you MUST BELIEVE HER!

Here's Hallberg commenting on a clip that begins with Democrats over and over reciting a sexist, ageist mantra against "old, white men."

Hallberg is right. There are still Americans left with enough common sense to reject the sexist, ageist talking points of the Trump haters who constantly seek to divide America. Let's hope they get out and VOTE!

In His OWN WORDS, Here's What Sen. Corey Booker Said About Women

Spartacus the "snatch snatcher!"

And they say Trump is a pig?
He attempted to explain his behavior. “Ever since puberty, I remember receiving messages that sex was a game, a competition. Sexual relations were best achieved through luck, guile, strategy or coercion.”

Booker wrote about how alcohol lubricated those relations: “Another friend in high school counseled me on the importance of drinking,” he wrote, detailing the slogans he had heard from friends. Booker listed them: “‘With liquor you’ll get to bed quicker,’ … ‘What do you think happened? She invited me back to her room at 3 a.m.’ … ‘I’ve got to find a way to snatch that snatch.’ … ‘The best thing for that girl would be to be tied down and screwed.’”
He was talking about a 15 year old girl. Booker claims he later changed his tune but Dems are constantly telling us men are ALL predators and we cannot believe what they say. Should we believe Booker now or when he was actually being honest?

If Booker was in High School and said those things shouldn't be be disqualified for federal office? Or once again, do these standards ONLY apply to Republicans? Not to Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Keith Ellison or...or...or...or...or...or...or...or......

Update: Will Sen. Booker now immediately recuse himself from voting in the U.S. Senate and await an FBI investigation?

Dems Stall on Examining Kavanaugh Accuser: Put Her UNDER OATH and Prosecute if Perjurious


The whole thing stinks.  An obvious and transparent smear!

Bill Clinton was credibly accused by Kathleen Willey of groping her just outside the Oval Office and we were told it was his "private life."  He lied to a federal judge about sex with Monica Lewinsky and Dems said "everybody lies."  Numerous other allegations and all dismissed by the same people who think that an uncorroborated allegation against Judge Kavanaugh dating back to high school 36 years ago should bar him from a seat on the Supreme Court.

The accuser in the Kavanaugh smear even hired an attorney, Debra Katz, famous for supporting liberal men accused of unwanted sexual advances including Clinton and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) who was accused by multiple women of misconduct while a sitting U.S. Senator. Hypocrisy runs rampant throughout this smear!

What we know about Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser, is that she is a Trump hating political activist just like her attorney. She's engaged in multiple protests against Trump (1,2). She's also a Democrat donor:
Ford has also been very busy erasing her social media links.  Why?  Do they show exactly why she might be motivated to engage in this kind of last minute character assassination?
We also know that Senator Feinstein sat on the accusation for months waiting for this precise moment. There was no questioning of Kavanaugh about the charges in public or private meetings during the confirmation process. More than anything else this is the indication of a planned and coordinated smear.

Tim Carney at the Washington Examiner ponders The long silences of Christine Blasey Ford and Dianne Feinstein with these three points:

  1. Feinstein found Ford's charges not credible. Perhaps Feinstein knows something we don't, and has concluded this accusation isn't true.
  2. Feinstein found Ford's charges not relevant. Perhaps Feinstein believes that whatever happened amounts not to a serious crime of moral turpitude, but to a horrible idiotic youthful mistake.
  3. Feinstein was always planning on saving the letter for as late as possible for tactical purposes.
Meawhile, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren (D) is using the smear to raise money.  How typical.  Create a scandal then profit by it.  I guess they learned that trick from the great global warming swindle.

Dems Not Cooperating with Judiciary Committee Investigation

The final nail in the coffin of this obvious smear is the refusal of Democrats to cooperate with Republicans on a plan to investigate the charges:
Grassley Statement on the Supreme Court Nomination
Sep 17, 2018

“Anyone who comes forward as Dr. Ford has deserves to be heard, so I will continue working on a way to hear her out in an appropriate, precedented and respectful manner.

“The standard procedure for updates to any nominee’s background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls with relevant parties. In this case, that would entail phone calls with at least Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. Consistent with that practice, I asked Senator Feinstein’s office yesterday to join me in scheduling these follow-ups. Thus far, they have refused. But as a necessary step in evaluating these claims, I’ll continue working to set them up.

“Unfortunately, committee Republicans have only known this person's identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week. Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs. The Minority withheld even the anonymous allegations for six weeks, only to later decide that they were serious enough to investigate on the eve of the committee vote, after the vetting process had been completed.

“It’s deeply disturbing that the existence of these allegations were leaked in a way that seemed to preclude Dr. Ford’s confidentiality.

“Over my nearly four decades in the Senate I have worked diligently to protect whistleblowers and get to the bottom of any issue. Dr. Ford’s attorney could have approached my office, while keeping her client confidential and anonymous, so that these allegations could be thoroughly investigated. Nevertheless, we are working diligently to get to the bottom of these claims.”
Funny how when this story first came out we were told the accuser wished to remain anonymous and 48 hours later everyone knew who she was. I guess Dems figured out the anonymous charges were not going to be enough so they tossed Christine Blasey Ford onto the fire.

In the Washington Post story which revealed Ford's identity this stands out:
After so many years, Ford said, she does not remember some key details of the incident. She said she believes it occurred in the summer of 1982, when she was 15, around the end of her sophomore year at the all-girls Holton-Arms School in Bethesda. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep.
Ford said she does not remember how the gathering came together the night of the incident. She said she often spent time in the summer at the Columbia Country Club pool in Chevy Chase, where in those pre-cellphone days, teenagers learned about gatherings via word of mouth. She also doesn’t recall who owned the house or how she got there.
Ford said that on the night of the party, she left the family room to use the bathroom, which was at the top of a narrow stairway. She doesn’t remember whether Kavanaugh and Judge were behind her or already upstairs, but she remembers being pushed into a bedroom and then onto a bed. Rock-and-roll music was playing with the volume turned up high, she said.
No court of law would ever accept such vague testimony and Ford's hazy recollection stands in stark contrast to the reports of women who were raped and remember every detail as they relived the horror over and over. Yet we are supposed to derail the nomination of a Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court on the basis of clearly flawed recollections? I don't think so.

Other women have come forward to vouch for the probity of Judge Kavanaugh. 65 women who have known or worked with Kavanaugh for many years, including some from his high school years, have written to attest to his character. But the Dems who insist that the accuser must be heard are either ignoring or attacking these women. War on women? You betcha!

Listen to Sen. Susan Collins

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has been the target of threats and abuse, including a large phallic object sent to her office. If she were a Democrat the media would be declaring this as evidence of a war on women. Apparently, it's OK to abuse Republican women. Just ask Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Homeland Security's Kirstjen Nielsen or White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. They and many more Republican women have been targeted for harassment and threats by Democrats. Sen. Collins has a good idea to get to the bottom of this mess:
Put Ford under oath. If she's found to be lying, then prosecute her for perjury and crimes against democracy. This smear could not be more obvious or transparent!

UPDATE: SMEAR EXPOSED:  Accuser refuses to testify until an FBI investigation!

Well, that didn't take long did it?  Christine Blasey Ford failed to respond to multiple communications from Senate Judiciary Committee staff to arrange for her appearance at a hearing next Monday. Instead, one of her attorney's appeared on CNN claiming that Ford demanded an FBI investigation into her allegations first.  Attorney Lisa Banks said "“Any talk of a hearing on Monday frankly is premature because she just came forward with these allegations 48 hours ago." Except that Ford first raised the issue in a letter in July which Democrats have had in their possession since then.

There is no justification for a further FBI investigation of Kavanaugh. He has been the subject of multiple FBI investigations for previous posts and before his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. This call for a further investigation is another obvious and transparent attempt to delay the nomination and smear Kavanaugh. Furthermore, the FBI has no jurisdiction to investigate a crime that MAY have happened 36 years ago and which is not a federal crime.

On Monday, Democrats demanded that Ford must be heard. Now, not so much.

Of course none of this matters to Democrats who have rushed to the nearest microphone to insist that Ford "must be believed" and that Kavanaugh must be presumed guilty. But they deny this same standard to the many, MANY women who accuse Democrats of sexual misconduct. So many recent examples point to the fact that Democrats only believe women if the accused is a Republican.  Otherwise, watch out. They will smear, destroy and threaten any woman who accuses a Democrat.

There we go. Another open and shut case of lies and character assassination and not a damn thing to do with justice for wronged women. And you thought confirmations to the U.S. Supreme Court were about legal qualifications!

Trump Hatrer's Knife Wielding Attack on GOP Congressional Candidate Latest in Growing Threat By the Left

When will elected Democrats be held to the same standard they demand of Trump?

Imagine if a knife wielding Trump supporter went after Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters.  It would be the top story on every newscast.  But when a knife wielding Democrat, perhaps motivated by Waters' command for supporters to harass Republicans wherever they are found, attacks GOP congressional candidate Rudy Peters, national media was largely silent.

Just as you didn't hear much if anything about the firebombing of a GOP campaign office last week or the threat from a Democrat Socialist twitter feed to commit mass murder at a meeting of Trump supporters in Washington, DC.

The media, and the Democrats are in total denial about the danger. It's as if the near fatal shooting of House GOP Whip Steven Scalise at the hands of a Bernie Sanders supporter never happened. Meanwhile, the number of threats continues to climb.

And it's not just Republican officials. Violence by the far left group ANTIFA is also spreading.  Try to invite a conservative speaker to visit your college and see what happens.

Rep. Maxine Waters claims "God is on our side" as she urges her deranged followers to take action.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaks of "uprisings all over the country" in opposition to Trump policies.  If Trump or any Republican spoke this way the media roar of condemnation would be deafening. But as violence against Republicans grows we hear nothing but crickets.

Some day someone else is going to get hurt and perhaps killed.  If that victim is a Republican it will be a two day story.  If someone decides to give Maxine Waters a taste of her own medicine it will be Trump's fault and weeks of calls for his impeachment.

Do far left Dems want a real war?  They better think that through carefully before they take this latest trend too far!

Remembering September 11th

17 years later and the memories are still fresh. The clarity of the lessons however, may be dimming!

I was looking back at some older photos I took in New York City of the World Trade Center. This one stands out:

I took that during a celebration for the Brooklyn Bridge back in the early 1990's.  And this view from the top of one of the Twin Towers. Note the silhouette of the towers in the lower right and George Washington Bridge in the upper left:

And this taken from Staten Island on the centennial of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor July 1986:

In annual remembrance ceremonies we read the names of those who were lost and praise the heroism of those who rushed to their death to save others.  But I think we have lost the lesson of what it takes to combat the evil that brought this horror to our shores.  Unfortunately, those who do not learn the lessons from history are bound to repeat them!

Anti-Trump Deep State Coup Plotters Out in the Open w/ NYT Op-Ed

They said Trump was crazy for suspecting unconstitutional "resistance." Now they admit he was right!

I won't go into much detail about the infamous NYT op-ed. This excerpt is all you need:
I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration...
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda...
[M]any of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda...
That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office...
We will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.
What part of the agenda would that be? Denuclearization of North Korea? Lowest unemployment in decades (no, Obama did NOT do that) or the successful renegotiation of our major trade agreements?

And since when did anonymous and un-elected lower officials have the right to decide how to "steer" government in the direction they favor. It's an out and out attempt to nullify the results of an election and folks, that ain't democracy!

This op-ed validates every reason Republicans in Congress have for demanding documents and testimony from FBI and Department of Justice officials about what role they might have played in undermining the results of an election. And it explains why Democrats so demanding of full disclosure by Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court do exactly the opposite in relation to GOP document requests.

Imagine the reaction if there was an organized cabal in the Obama Administration determined to undermine his authority. Would the New York Times and other media give them a platform? If it was "treason" as some Democrats suggested because Trump didn't declare war on Putin, why is it not "treason" when this cabal openly brags about overturning the U.S. Constitution?

So Much for Civility! 72 hours After McCain Funeral Dems Turn Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing Into Screaming Circus

Dems have gone from rioting in the streets to rioting in the halls of Congress!

Just days ago Dems lined up to praise the late Senator John McCain. Praising him for working with both sides and his sense of civility.  At McCain's Washington memorial service Obama praised McCain for his understanding of our "institutions of self government" and that McCain understood "those rules, those norms are what bind us together. It gives shape and order to our common life."

3 days later Dems put on a coordinated freak show where protesters were PAID to disrupt the senate confirmation hearing of Judge Kavanaugh and where Democrat senators began interrupting Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) before he even finished the first sentence of his introduction.

Here's a portion of that transcript:
GRASSLEY: “Good morning. I welcome everyone to this confirmation hearing on the nomination of —“
HARRIS: “Mr. Chairman.”
GRASSLEY: “— Brett Kavanaugh --”
HARRIS: “Mr. Chairman.”
GRASSLEY: “— to serve as associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
HARRIS: “Mr. Chairman, I’d like to be recognized for a question before we proceed. Mr. Chairman, I’d like to be recognized to ask a question before we proceed. The committee received just last night less than 15 hours ago —“
Democrats went on to interrupt the hearings more than 76 times. So much for civility and respect for institutions!

Democrats were demanding the release of all documents which crossed Kavanaugh's desk when he was White House Staff Secretary even though Kavanaugh played no part in the policy underlying those documents. The ploy is a fishing expedition to re-litigate the Bush years. Funny how Dems did NOT provide all documents related to Justice Elena Kagin's time as Solicitor General during the Clinton Administration citing the same privilege they are now dismissing.

Democrats on the committee say they need more documents to give full consideration to the nominee yet they have already announced they will vote against Kavanaugh regardless.

This is all just a game to the Dems who seek to appease their angry, hysteric left wing base. Speaking of which....

70 protesters arrested. Some receiving payoffs with a "literal bag of cash." Un-democratic and un-American.

We should thank Democrats. Hours after they praise John McCain for civility they demonstrate exactly what that means to them. Their love for the institutions and norms of self government that Obama praised in McCain was on full display. Just another left wing freak show where they put their right to be heard above the rights of everyone else and the Constitution!

Left Erases History Again w/ Film Cutting American Flag From Apollo 11 Moon Landing

Did they think no one would notice?

How do you make a movie about the first moon landing and cut this scene?  Astronauth Neil Armstrong photographs Buzz Aldrin saluting the flag on the surface of the moon July 1969.  
Next July marks 50 years since astronaut Neil Armstrong took the first step on the surface of the moon.  To mark the occasion Steven Spielberg has produced a film called "First Man" starring Canadian Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong.  One startling omission from the film, the scene where Neil Armstrong plants the American flag on the moon.

Biopics often have omissions of fact made necessary by limited time. But this one is a doozy.  Gosling defends the film with some twisted logic by suggesting that Armstrong didn't want to be portrayed as a hero; the moon landing was a group effort.  Then why name the film after Armstrong? None of this explains why they cut the American flag from the landing scene.

The events of July 20, 1969 are seared in my memory as they are in the minds of most who watched the historic event live on television.  It's impossible to forget the pride of seeing the American flag unfurled on the moon.  Likewise, as a small boy I attended Neil Armstrong's homecoming parade in Wapakoneta, Ohio. Seeing him at the center of that parade it's difficult not to view him as a hero.

The scene in Mission Control as Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon. You won't see that in this film either. Unless they replace the American flag with the UN banner!
Cutting America down to size. Revision serves left's goals.

Like the left wing fascists tearing down statues of historical figures, the revising of history here is yet another attempt to erase history and downplay American exceptionalism.  Obama led that charge ten years earlier and Hollywood still follows the lead. As if somehow we would all be better off if the U.S. had not accomplished these great feats.

Neil Armstrong died six years ago in August.  But Buzz Aldrin, who followed Armstrong down that ladder to the lunar surface 49 years ago tweeted his thoughts on the landing with a clear message:

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) reminds us:

Once again, Hollywood and the American left seem to think pride in America is a bad thing; not worthy of remembering.  Tell that to the men and women who sacrificed their lives in battle to save freedom for our allies or dedicated themselves to achieving great things. Sure, we do it in the name of all mankind. But we are Americans and know no one else could do it.  After all that, what's wrong with a little flag waving!

Why Are Obama, Biden and Top Dems Honoring a White Supremacist Racist Like John McCain?

That's what they said about him in 2008!

You know what they say about President Trump. He's a racist who gives a "dogwhistle" to his racist supporters. Another white supremacist! Of course they never said that about Trump in all the years he was a public figure. Only when he ran for President. Sort of like John McCain.

McCain was every Democrat's favorite Republican when he was criticizing President Bush. But when he ran for office, suddenly he was a racist. Do they just make this stuff up about every Republican? If you think that, you're catching on!

The Daily Caller dredged up what Dems were saying about McCain in 2008 and it's not the high praise being heaped on him at his funeral on Saturday.  Dems openly called him a racist and civil rights self proclaimed icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) wrote "As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all." Sound familiar? Lewis went on to compare McCain to segregationist George Wallace. They didn't even try that with Trump!

Of course now Rep. Lewis is singing a different tune. He calls McCain a "great warrior who defended this nation’s honor" and "one of those rare people who was never afraid to do what he believed was right."

It's hard to square the statements of the past and today. Are Dems really honoring a racist and forgetting his past? Or were their original attacks on McCain, just as they are on Trump, based solely on politics and an attempt to divide Americans based on race to win an election? We know the answer.

Winning Strategy? Dems Stuck on Crazy w/ Candidates for '18 Midterm Election

It's difficult to imagine a party so far left and out of the mainstream will ever capture the majority of voters in anything but the smallest races!

I recall when Sen. George McGovern was the Democrat nominee for President in 1972 running against Richard Nixon.  McGovern was the darling of the anti-war, hate America left. He got absolutely trounced. Nixon won every state except the District of Columbia and Massachusetts.

Today's McGovern Democrat would be anathema in today's Democrat Party.  They would be regarded as bigots and sellouts and would likely be lynched by Antifa for crimes against the left wing fascist goal of a neo-Marxist one party state.

This new breed of ultra radical Democrat is pulling the one proud Dem Party away from it's roots and into a bizarro world of left wing craziness. Even Democrats who were previously more mainstream have seen the writing on the wall.

Take Hillary Clinton as one example. She praised an 11 year old girl for "courage to exercise your right to protest injustice" for kneeling at her school during the Pledge of Allegiance. Imagine what Hillary would say if the child knelt instead to pray!

And New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. No longer the icon of Democrat appeal like his father Mario. Andrew said recently that "America was never that great." Too bad Mario is no longer alive. He might remind his son about his families humble roots as shop owners in Queens rising all the way to the top. But still, America isn't so hot?

Vote for the pink tutu or the woman fighter pilot?

In Arizona, Martha McSally for the GOP faces Democrat rival, Kyrsten Sinema. After the 9/11 attacks McSally was fighting the Taliban over Afghanistan. Sinema was protesting the war in a pink tutu. Who would you vote for?

Ocasio Cortez takes the cake on crazy and ignorant!

In Florida, Dems gave the primary nod to Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in the race for governor. Gillum problems with corruption, crime and incompetence in office pale in comparison to the far left kook ideas he supports.

But since Russian loving Bernie Sanders (flew the Soviet flag in Vermont) isn't on the ballot this time around my vote for top kook, krazy Dem goes to newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In one interview after another she reveals a glaring ignorance of public policy and basic civics that is startling for someone who wants to lead the country in a new direction. She doesn't even know what direction she would go.

Here's some fun that illustrates the point:
SPOCK: No sign of intelligent life Captain!
Democrats seem to think American voters are bigger idiots than their candidates. That might be true of the Democrat base, but one thing I've learned from decades in grass roots politics is that there is a basic common sense among most voters that allows them to know crazy and stupid when they see it. This fall, the pink tutu, angry left wing fascist, ignorant or corrupt socialist crowd may have to learn that lesson.... AGAIN!

Trump's Right. Bias on Google IS Real!

Speaking from personal experience!

I found this to be true. Once upon a time you could type in any headline from a post here at Mike's America and with that exact text my post would be at or near the top in any Google search. No longer. Traffic at the blog took a dramatic drop. Recently, I searched for "John McCain Visits Mike's America" and it was nowhere unless you did the search in quotes. Formerly it would be at the top without quotes.

It's just one example of many I could cite.

Social media companies have immense power. Tilting the playing field to the left may require congressional action to regulate them and demand that they be fair in presenting ideas from both sides!

Teen Gun Grabber David Hogg Wants $5 Million OR ELSE!

It's clear the gun grabbers goal is less about stopping gun violence and more about MONEY!

It's just like Rev. Jesse Jackson with the old shakedown. Show up at a company and threaten racial action unless you make a donation! From the Associated Press:
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Student gun control advocates and one of the survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting are finishing a 50-mile, four-day march in Massachusetts to the headquarters of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson.

The group is gathering outside company headquarters Sunday in Springfield.

The marchers have condemned Smith & Wesson for making the rifle used in the February mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The group wants the company to donate $5 million to gun violence research.
"Camera Hogg" previously demanded $1 million from the Publix supermarket chain. Like Rev. Jesse Jackson, he's learned that funding his lifestyle is more important than advancing a cause!

Forget Russian Meddling, What About Chinese Communists Funding Left Wing Think Tanks?

Or doesn't foreign meddling matter if they are funding left wing groups?

OK, we know Putin has been funding left wing groups that stir up racial hate to divide Americans. While there is a current "red scare" about Russians, who is keeping an eye on the Chinese?
Chinese Communist Party Funds Washington Think Tanks
United Front Work Department conducts aggressive influence operations in U.S.
BY: Bill Gertz Follow @BillGertz
The Washington Free Beacon
August 24, 2018 4:55 pm

China's Communist Party is intensifying covert influence operations in the United States that include funding Washington think tanks and coercing Chinese Americans, according to a congressional commission report.

The influence operations are conducted by the United Front Work Department, a Central Committee organ that employs tens of thousands of operatives who seek to use both overt and covert operations to promote Communist Party policies.

The Party's United Front strategy includes paying several Washington think tanks with the goal influencing their actions and adopting positions that support Beijing's policies.
In addition to Johns Hopkins, other think tanks linked to China and influential in American policy circles include the Brookings Institution, Atlantic Council, Center for American Progress, EastWest Institute, Carter Center, and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

The Exchange Foundation is tied to Chinese government influence operations and uses the same public relations firm as the Chinese embassy.
"Most Americans and many members of Congress have no idea of the range of activities undertaken by this Chinese Communist Party web," Wortzel said. "It is a form of activity by Communist parties that dates back to the days of Lenin."
Yep. Just like the Russians, efforts to buy influence, particularly from sympathetic targets on the left is an ongoing operation. When will we have a Special Prosecutor to look at this or are ten year old tax charges the only thing of interest?

Left Wing Fascists Doing Putin's Bidding As They Tear Down Confederate Statue in North Carolina

Want to see who the real Putin Puppets are?  Watch!

Silent Sam, a statute honoring Confederate Soldiers from the University of North Carolina who died in the Civil War was toppled from it's pedestal recently by an angry left wing mob. The incident was quickly reported by Russian TV, government media in Russia entirely run by Vladimir Putin:

Like Russian meddling during the 2016 election where Putin funded groups supporting Black Lives Matter, this latest left wing fascist action raises serious questions about who is funding ANTIFA and related groups who continue to divide Americans using race and hate.

Here's the message from the statue's base:

Who could possibly argue with that?  Ask your nearest left wing fascist. Right after they are done burning an American flag!

One thing is clear: there is an organized campaign to erase American history and replace it with racist and hate filled revisionism. Whoever paid for it, Putin is the beneficiary!

The White House Press Briefing I Would Like to See

Treat these media clowns with the contempt they deserve!

This is a hoot. Watch:

John McCain 1936-2018

Decades of service to his country on the battlefield and in Congress!

U.S. Senator John McCain, Republican from Arizona, died Saturday after months of dealing with an aggressive cancer. He was 81.  Immediately the tributes began. If you would like to see a photo biography of his life, the Financial Times has one here.

McCain was a naval aviator who was shot down over Hanoi  in 1967 during the Vietnam War. He served as a prisoner of war and endured torture that left him scarred for life.  Returning as a hero, he soon won a congressional seat and later a senate seat from Arizona.  He was the Republican Party presidential nominee in 2008.

Both conservatives and liberals had a love hate relationship with McCain.  He would often criticize his party, to the delight of Democrats but when he ran for President they attacked him savagely, even questioning his war record. Obama too went after him in a deeply personal way.

As a conservative I had my own beef with McCain and I took those issues to him personally during a house visit he made in my area in 2007 during the start of that failed presidential run. I asked him a series of questions regarding positions he held that were at variance with conservatives.  He was known for his "straight talk" and didn't hold back on that occasion; telling me "if you don't like it vote for someone else." I did just that in the primary.

We talked about the judicial filibuster, he was in favor keeping it, and about immigration among other things. McCain told those gathered in 2007 that he had learned his lesson in the immigration debate and would now put border security first.  Several years later he abandoned that pledge and again put forward an amnesty proposal with border security as a weak afterthought.

McCain went on to lose the 2008 election to Obama.  Partly because McCain kept his pledge to limit campaign spending to the public money system. Obama made the same pledge and broke it the moment he discovered he could raise and spend a much larger war chest.

In his last year in the U.S. Senate McCain cast the deciding vote with Democrats to keep ObamaCare. Again, Democrats were delighted and conservatives like myself were not surprised even though McCain promised repeatedly to "repeal and replace ObamaCare."  This video should be his political epitaph:

Former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State and another failed presidential candidate John Kerry was among the Dems quick to praise McCain on his passing. Kerry said: "John McCain showed all of us how to bridge the divide." Yes, he might have showed you Kerry, but you never followed him. Neither did any of the other Democrats who will now line up to praise McCain for his bipartisanship. Of course to them, the very meaning of the word is to side with Democrats. NEVER the other way around.

McCain was a lion of the Senate in the old school mold. But that way of working together is gone. Shattered by Dems who demand it all and accept no compromise. Just like ObamaCare. McCain is now gone and after the eulogies we must get back to work and remember the lessons he taught us. Compromise never got him anything but a pat on the back from Dems. Let's not make that mistake again!

Dems Outraged Over Trump Immigration Policy Separating Children Are Silent When Illegal Kills Young Woman

Just as they ignored all the other times that illegals have permanently separated parents from their children through murder!

Mollie Tibbetts, 20 years old from Iowa. Murdered by illegal alien from Mexico.
At last we have a suspect in custody for the murder of Mollie Tibbetts. He is 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a Mexican national, who has lived in the U.S. illegally for several years. But don't expect to hear about Rivera being here illegally in the New York Times. They deleted any reference to his immigration status. On MSNBC, a guest dismissed the story as “a girl in Iowa” that “Fox News is talking about.”

Not to be outdone, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), aka "Fauxcahontas" for claiming Indian heritage despite push-back from Native American organizations, was asked about the crime on CNN. She proceeded once again to lambaste the Trump Administration for following the same child separation policy used under the Obama Administration. Her concern for a murdered young girl? not so much.

Democrats ignoring the horrors inflicted by illegal aliens is par for the course. They showed little concern for the family of Kate Steinle, murdered by an illegal alien deported multiple times and blocked the bill that would take stronger measures against repeat offenders like her killer. Likewise, you didn't hear much when MS-13 gang members in a Washington, DC suburb stabbed a young victim 100 times, decapitated him and cut out his heart. The injuries were so severe he has yet to be identified. Nor all the other cases where young men and women were literally cut to ribbons by illegal alien MS-13 gangs. No concern about those young people being separated from their families.

Once again, a young American woman has been killed because of the open borders immigration policies Democrats and some establishment Republicans support. Trump and most conservative elected officials are trying to fix the problem. But Democrats stand in their way. They put the interests of illegal aliens, even murderous thugs, ahead of the rights of American citizens!

Trump Frame-up: Who is Bruce Ohr and Why Should You Care?

He may seem like a bit player but he's at the heart of the Trump put up job!

The Epoch Times did an incredible job laying out all the interconnections that brought about the Trump-Russia hoax. It's a mind boggling tangle of lies and liars but we are getting closer to the truth:

Click here for full size.
You'll notice Bruce and his wife Nellie Ohr in the lower left.  They have a direct connection to Christopher Steele, the former MI- 6 intelligence officer who compiled the infamous Trump dossier.

Bruce Ohr and wife Nellie.  Key players in the Trump frame-up.
Bruce was a high ranking Department of Justice official. He's been demoted twice since his role in this fraud became clear. Wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS that funded Steele's nefarious activities with money from the Hillary Clinton campaign. According to the New York Times:
After Mr. Trump secured the nomination, Fusion GPS was hired on behalf of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the D.N.C. by their law firm, Perkins Coie, to compile research about Mr. Trump, his businesses and associates — including possible connections with Russia. It was at that point that Fusion GPS hired Mr. Steele, who has deep sourcing in Russia, to gather information.
Steele was also paid by the FBI. We don't know who set that up but NBC News reports that the payments ended after Steele leaked information to the news media. After which Steele was told he should not "obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf of the FBI."

But Steele did NOT stop feeding the FBI the fake info on Trump. He used Brue Ohr as a back channel and text messages between the two reveal he asked Ohr to get his access to the FBI and to Special Prosecutor Mueller restored. The two had ongoing contacts, nearly 70 in all. Some of which raise very interesting questions about what it is they were doing.

Here's one page of their exchanges from last October. More texts are here.

Again and again, Steele and Ohr were using Whatsapp calls for voice communication. Such calls are encrypted and not part of any record. Steele continued to pass information through Ohr to the FBI and his comments suggest that there was a wider plan to undermine Trump and hide their influence.  For instance, the "firewall" described below:

The congressional appearance was a reference to testimony by FBI Director James Comey on March 20.  In May Comey was fired.  Following that Ohr wrote a contemporaneous note saying Steele was "very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey's firing -- afraid they will be exposed."

Well, now they are exposed.  Not only did Ohr fail to file the required reporting about his wife's involvement, but Ohr was NEVER authorized to work on the Trump Russia case.

Ohr worked without authorization

Margot Cleveland at the Federalist reports:
Rosenstein was Ohr’s boss prior to his demotion, yet Rosenstein claims he knew nothing of Ohr’s involvement in the Russia investigation. Rosenstein declared to Congress in a letter reviewed by Solomon that he was “unaware of Ohr’s activities with Steele,” that Ohr was “not assigned” to the Russia investigation, and that Ohr “was not in the chain of command.” Rosenstein added, “Any involvement Mr. Ohr had in this matter was without my knowledge.”
In addition to Ohr's secret calls to Christopher Steele, he had secret meetings with Glenn Simpson who runs Fusion GPS. That is especially noteworthy because Simpson denied under oath in congressional hearings any contact with Ohr.

And it wasn't just the firing of Comey that left Steele and Ohr "exposed."  Texts after the firing of Obama Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, who remained in place after the transition to the Trump Administration also caused concern.  Again from Margot Cleveland at the Federalist:
The day after Yate’s firing, Steele contacted Ohr, texting “doubtless a sad and crazy day for you re-SY,” a clear reference to Sally Yates. “Just wanted to check you are OK, still in situ and able to help locally as discussed, along with your Bureau colleagues,” Steele added. Then, after Ohr confirmed “I’m still here and able to help as discussed,” Steele stressed that if Ohr was out at DOJ, he needed another “(Bureau?)” contact.This exchange suggests Yates’ removal concerned Steele and left him worried that without Yates at the helm, Ohr’s continued role as a DOJ liaison for Steele was at risk, and that without Yates or Ohr, he would need to work directly with the FBI.
That note suggests that the back-channel to the FBI was directed by the highest level of the Department of Justice over the head of Rod Rosenstein.  A direct link back to Obama Administration holdovers. What was their role in the Trump frame-up?

How high up did that reach?  This report from NBC News may give the answer:

Ohr will appear before a closed door interview with a congressional committee on August 28.  No word yet on a public hearing.  It's clear he was a key player trying to fly below the radar. No longer.  He and Steele have been exposed and the firewall is in tatters!

Left Wing Protests Bring Wave of Violence Directed at Media but Little, If Any, Coverage

Imagine the wall to wall coverage if Trump supporters did this!

CNN's Jim Acosta has been dining out for weeks after complaining about the potential for violence he claims to witness at Trump rallies. None of the mostly grandparents who attend these rallies have actually threatened Acosta, let alone assaulted him. Mostly they just shout "CNN SUCKS" and Acosta wets his pants.

Meanwhile, at Antifa protests this weekend in several cities there was ACTUAL violence directed at news media. The same media that repeated Acosta's claims were silent.

Here are some examples. The first is an NBC camera crew assaulted in Charlottesville, Virginia:
Grandparents shouting "CNN sucks" seems pretty tame after that. But we're not through. In Toronto, at a rally against hate and racism a cameraman with the Toronto Sun was attacked. As as a columnist at the Sun points out, no one in the mainstream media gave a damn!

In Toronto, a protest against hate turns violent against the media.  Where is CNN?
It wasn't just selected journalists that were targeted. Antifa protesters in Washington, DC openly advocated violence.  I thought the left opposed guns?  I guess that's just for the rest of us:
One of the "stop the hate" protesters in DC was asked what he would do to Trump:

Yeah, these are the people who want to stop hate and fascism. Openly advocating for violence and attacking reporters.  But Trump's the real problem right?

128 newspapers are planning coordinated editorials to denounce President Trump for his "dirty war" against the media. You can bet NOT ONE will mention the violence directed at the media and others by left wing fasicsts!

Dems and GOP Jittery as Countdown to Midterm Election Begins.

Bottom line? Don't panic!

Trump's Secret Weapon: Dems stuck on crazy!
Just before the 2016 presidential election I did a series of appearances on a local radio station offering analysis of polling in the run up to the election.  I was on air the day before the election and offered this sobering thought: "unless something unknown happens and Trump brings out a hidden groundswell of voters then Hillary will be elected President."

But that hidden Trump groundswell did appear. No one predicted it.  There wasn't a single poll which suggested there would be a massive outpouring of hidden support for Trump.  All the polls were wrong.  So what about this time around?

Blue wave and big Dem win or fizzle?

While Democrats continue to lose nearly all of the special congressional elections held since Trump took office we can't ignore how they have improved their voter turnout in these races by a significant margin. Here's a graphic from election statistic web site 538:

Democrats keep losing, but by less than expected.  But if Dems manage to pull off the same higher turnout in November in races where the GOP incumbent has a narrow advantage it is possible for them to retake the U.S. House of Representatives though not the U.S. Senate.

But a surge is special elections is not the only predictor that analysts look to. What's called the "generic ballot" on polling asks poll recipients which party they favor in congressional elections. It is also a reliable indicator and keeps jumping up and down.

At 538 Nathaniel Raketch reminds us:
Generic-ballot polling has been telling us almost all cycle long to expect a less dramatic Democratic wave than the one hinted at by special election results.
Analysts at 538 are left to argue over whether special elections or generic ballot indicators are  the better predictor.  Nate Silver offers Democrats hope by pondering whether the generic index may change later to reflect the greater difference suggested by the Dems over performance in special elections.  Of course even as the ballots were being counted in 2016 Nate still predicted Hillary would win.

GOP down but not out!

If you want a more positive view of the race from the GOP perspective, try this article by Michael Graham at CBS News. He doesn't sugar coat it and cites the uphill climb required by this sobering thought from the Cook Political Report:

When it comes to the generic ballot Graham cites Stanford University political scientist Doug Rivers:
"On the generic ballot question, we think +6 for Democrats makes control of the House a toss-up," Rivers said, "while a Democrats +4 means the GOP could probably keep control the House."
The generic ballot index as of Saturday, August 11 gives Democrats only a four point advantage!

How to bring out the hidden Trump voter?

I've been warning for years that the GOP has to do better at getting it's voters to the polls. They've made progress with voter turnout but the Dems still have a much better and well funded turnout machine.

The Republican ace in the hole is President Trump. His rallies are packed to the rafters with enthusiastic supporters. If he can deliver that energy to enough key districts it would create a rampart against whatever wave the Dems can muster. Can he build that wall? So far many of the hidden Trump voters from 2016 are still hiding.

Another way to motivate Trump's base is to remind them what it will be like if Nancy Pelosi takes back the Speaker's gavel. Everyone knows the Dem candidates claiming they won't vote for Pelosi as Speaker are lying. Trump has reminded supporters in tweets and at rallies what is at stake. Campaign ads in key districts will amplify that message.

Democrat's hysteria helps GOP!

Democrats are helping Trump in two ways. Their wild hysteric attacks on Trump have alienated many moderate voters. Every week there's a new story, like this one, showing their disgust. Embracing crazy doesn't win and Democrats haven't offered any specific alternative to Trump's policies other than to take away the tax cuts that are fueling job growth and higher incomes for workers. Nancy Pelosi calls tax cuts for workers "crumbs" and she wants to take them away. That ain't going to fly!

The odds are somewhat against the GOP holding the House. As it was in 2016 it all comes down to turnout and the question is whether the hidden Trump voter from 2016 will come out again.  Stay tuned!

Blame It on the Russians! Dems Lose ANOTHER Special Congressional Election

A close race but in the end, another DEFEAT!

Oh, the Dems were so excited last week. Stories in the Huffington Post about how Dems will mount their big "comeback" in places like Ohio by winning a special congressional election in a typically Republican district. Twitter was all agog with the Politico story that there was a big Democrat "surge" in Ohio.

Close but no cigar. After massive overspending by the Democrat candidate and an effort that included Democrats from other states offering to share donations it wasn't enough. In the end Republican Troy Balderson beat Democrat Danny O'Connor by 50.2 to 49.3%.

Dems thought it would be another rerun of the Connor Lamb victory in Pennsylvania. Remember Lamb?  The candidate who was shown firing his AR-15 rifle in a campaign ad.  And the gun grabbers who would go ballistic if a Republican did that were silent. I'm not aware of Danny O'Connor firing any weapons but he did promise not to vote for Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker. But then he walked it back.  Like anyone believes these Dems will NOT be Pelosi's pawns!

The Ohio 12th is a district I know well.  The rally where President Trump inspired voters on Saturday was on the same road where 26 years ago I was putting up yard signs for John Kasich's first election to Congress. Now Governor, Kasich and I reminisced about that time during this visit to Hilton Head prior to the 2016 South Carolina presidential primary.

While the district is predominantly white and Republican one third is made up of precincts in Franklin County which has a 16 point Democrat advantage.

The close result is a warning to Republicans that they need to improve their get out the vote effort. But it would be a mistake to make too much out of a special election. Especially since Republicans have won all but one since Trump was elected.

Whose the Racist? Black Woman Harassed by Another Left Wing Antifa White Mob

How will the left blame this on Trump?

Another parallel to NAZI brownshirts. This time in Philadelphia over the weekend as a mob of Antifa fascist goons drove conservative activists Candace Owens, who is black, and Charlie Kirk from the hotel restaurant where they were having breakfast and into the street where they were harassed and Kirk assaulted.
And when the cops, also minorities, showed up the left wing fascists shouted racial epithets at them too!

This is where we are heading in the country. At some point it will lead to even greater violence and you can bet these antifa goons will be the first to blame it on Trump. There is no place in America for this kind of activity. The people who claim to be anti-fascist are the actual fascists and they should be arrested and the Democrats who encourage them should be held accountable. Can you imagine if Trump supporters behaved this way? Time to crack down on these lunatics before more people get hurt!

When Will the Hate Trump Hysterics Care About Chinese and Russian Spying on Senator Feinstein?

Will MSNBC take time out from doing 455 segments on porn star Stormy Daniels to cover some actual news that matters?

Does foreign meddling in American affairs really matter to the left or is it just a cudgel they use to bash Trump?

You know the answer.  The left never bothered with Russia before, even attacking those who raised the issue of a Russian threat. Suddenly, they see reds under every bed. Or at least beds belonging to Republicans. Never any interest in Hillary campaign payments to Russians for dirt on Trump.

And now we learn that Sen. Dianne Feinstein had a driver and long time office aide who was a spy for China.  Think that might be newsworthy?  After all, Feinstein is the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee with access to our nation's top secrets.  By her side for 20 years who knows how many vital national security secrets he funneled to his Chinese masters.
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – New details emerged Wednesday about how a mole for the government of communist China managed to stay by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years.

It happened five years ago, but additional information is just surfacing about how the Bay Area senator’s office was infiltrated by a Chinese spy.

The Bay Area is a hotbed for Russian and Chinese espionage. Late last year, the feds shut down the Russian consulate in San Francisco.

You may remember the thick black smoke that billowing from building before Russian diplomats turned it over to authorities, presumably produced by burning documents.
On Wednesday, the San Francisco Chronicle uncovered additional details in a column written by reporters Phil Matier and Andy Ross.

The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community.

He even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator.

Feinstein — who was Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time — was reportedly mortified when the FBI told her she’d been infiltrated.
Former FBI agent and KPIX 5 security analyst Jeff Harp said he was not surprised.

“Think about Diane Feinstein and what she had access to,” said Harp. “One, she had access to the Chinese community here in San Francisco; great amount of political influence. Two, correct me if I’m wrong, Dianne Feinstein still has very close ties to the intelligence committees there in Washington, D.C.”
If meddling in U.S. affairs is such a big deal why not appoint a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of this?  Haul up every Feinstein associate who has ever had a parking ticket and throw them in solitary confinement until they talk.

Better yet, tell the clowns at MSNBC and CNN that there are more important stories to cover than the daily diet of hate Trump hysteria.  Or is a porn star really more important than our nation's most sensitive secrets?

Another Freak Show in Oregon as Antifa Fascists Show Once Again Who the REAL Nazis Are!

If these people were not so violent, you might want to laugh!

So, not content to pollute the environment with tons of garbage and toxic waste in their earlier protest (as well as shouting the "N" word) the fascist left took to the streets of Portland, Oregon on Saturday to show once again what complete imbeciles they are. They claim they were simply "counter protesting" a right wing group to whom they deny free speech while claiming the right wingers are fascists. You be the judge.

Putin's Pawns!

First thing you notice are their faces covered to avoid detection by law enforcement after violent action. Second thing, the communist flag in center position should be a dead giveaway where their real motivation lies. Who is doing Putin's bidding here? As one observer points out
"If you're marching alongside people covering their faces with black masks while flying a flag that represents the industrialized slaughter of 100 million people, it's time to take a long look in the mirror."
Sorry, but if these people looked in the mirror they might be too embarrassed to walk out the door. Especially this bunch. While less threatening than the black clad goon squad I'm not sure what the purpose was for these folks other than to demonstrate the total silliness of the far left:

What the hell are these people doing?  Nobody knows!

But the freak show was just the usual left wing sideshow. The main event was to provoke violence. Even children were brought in to help. Teach them to hate while they're young:

These are not protesters seeking to express their right to free speech. They are goons. Nothing more than the NAZI brownshirts who roamed Germany in the 1930's attacking Jews, the scapegoat of the day.

Fortunately, after previous protests ended in violence when law enforcement was ordered to stand down, police were out in force on Saturday and kept the two groups separated. Violence was minimum.

While improving their handling of the protests liberal Portland city government proves once again why any business would be crazy to relocate there. No doubt the city has a generous welfare program for any displaced workers!
