The Big Lie on Climate a Centerpiece of Kamala Harris Presidential Run

Why not use easily disproven lies to scare people into voting for you?  It works whenever Dems try it!

In the wave of hate and hysteria Dems directed at the boys from Convington Catholic High School we saw the Big Lie at work.  Say something outrageous and just keep repeating it despite the facts knowing your minions will quickly accept it.

The lie about the Covington boys has been repeatedly debunked but the genie is out of the bottle. They are forever branded as racists and bigots despite the clear video evidence showing Native American activist Nathan Phillips, aka Chief Full of Bull walking towards the boys and past the Black Hebrew Israelites as they shouted homophobic, racist and bigoted garbage at any and all, including Phillips.

As I mentioned in one of the posts on that subject, the Big Lie is the same tactic we have seen for decades with global warming, aka climate change.  For decades have we been told we had only a few years to act before it would be too late and yet we are still here.  How many years have we been told the ice cover over the Arctic Ocean would be gone for good with dire and unstoppable calamity the result.  Except the ice is still there and well above what it was at the lowest point in recent measurements. The polar bear population is just fine.

Al Gore used the scary image of Hurricane Katrina to sell books, a movie and win a Nobel Prize and an Oscar.  He claimed that hurricanes would be more frequent and deadly. Yet since Katrina in 2005 we have had historic lows in the number and strength of hurricanes.

Bureaus throughout the U.S. government track extreme weather events, wildfires and drought. All show stable numbers within historic norms and even decreases.

The above are FACTS, not opinions, and sourced from U.S. government agencies. But that didn't stop Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) from repeating the Big Lie during the announcement for her presidential campaign:
HARRIS: “Let’s speak truth — climate change is real and it is happening now. Everybody here knows from wildfires in the west to hurricanes in the east to floods and droughts in the heartland, but we’re not going to buy the lie, we’re going to act based on science fact, not science fiction.
Whenever a Democrat says "we're not going to buy the lie" you know that's EXACTLY what they are doing!  What Harris said and what many Dems believe as if it were a religious vow is entirely a FICTION!

We can expect the Big Lie on climate change and other aspects of the far left's agenda to be repeated over and over as the months leading up to the 2020 campaign go by. And one thing we know for sure is that the same media organizations which purport to "fact check" every utterance by President Trump will either be silent or complicit in the lie!

UPDATE: Not content to repeat the Big Lie, Rep. Occasio-Cortez "cannot allow" anyone to think differently!

After a student libertarian organization hosted an event at which the benefits of increased CO2 levels was discussed the group's sponsors were threatened by Occasio-Cortez and other climate fascists. The tweet by Cortez is chilling (pun not intended):
Yes, dearie, climate change is "real" but your facts are NOT. And it's especially telling that you "cannot allow" any viewpoint with which you disagree. Typical left wing fascist!

Blatant Homophobia, Sexism, Racism, Bigotry and Disrespect for Native Americans by Black Hebrew Israelites All Overlooked by Those Who Sought to Tar Covington Teens

All that hysteria and hate about racism and respect in false reports about CHILDREN yet no condemnation for the actions of ADULTS!

Why did those who were so quick to condemn the Covington teens on the basis of one out of context video overlook the mountain of evidence of real hate speech? Is it because this story was NOT about respect for Native Americans nor racism but just another way to hate Trump? Or do those same hysterics refuse to hold the real haters accountable because of the color of their skin?

Funny how so little was reported about the Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI) who started the entire sad saga of hate with their vile performance at the Lincoln Memorial. Even after their role was revealed, though not in any detail, the New York Times ran a puff piece about the group. But since facts and the truth are in short supply in this story let's document what the Black Hebrew Israelites actually said. Again, it's ALL ON TAPE should their be any question.

From Caitlan Flanagan's report in The Atlantic:
It seems that the Black Hebrew Israelites had come to the Lincoln Memorial with the express intention of verbally confronting the Native Americans, some of whom had already begun to gather as the video begins, many of them in Native dress. The Black Hebrew Israelites’ leader begins shouting at them: “Before you started worshipping totem poles, you was worshipping the true and living God. Before you became an idol worshipper, you was worshipping the true and living God. This is the reason why this land was taken away from you! Because you worship everything except the most high. You worship every creation except the Creator—and that’s what we are here to tell you to do.”
A few more people in Native costume gather, clearly stunned by his tirade. “You’re not supposed to worship eagles, buffalos, rams, all types of animals,” he calls out to them.
“You’re not an Indian. Indian means ‘savage.’ ”
All that abuse dumped on Covington teen Nick Sandmann because he "smirked" on the steps when approached by Native American activist Nathan Phillips, aka Chief Full of Bull, for being "disrepectful" yet we have it on record where the Black Hebrew Israelites called Native Americans "savages" and we don't hear a peep from the self righteous hate Trump crowd!

When the BHI started getting heat from the crowd of Native Americans they tried to deflect (must be trained by George Soros) by pointing to the Covington teens and attacking them for wearing the MAGA hats. At that point the teens began signing their school spirit songs to drown out the hate preachers. Hate Trump hysterics falsely claimed this song was to ridicule the Native Americans. As usual, they lied!

Again from The Atlantic report:
The camera turns to capture five white teenage boys, one of whom is wearing a maga hat. They are standing at a respectful distance, with their hands in their pockets, listening to this exchange with expressions of curiosity. They are there to meet their bus home.

Conor Friedersdorf: This is how the left destroys itself

“Why you not angry at them?” the Black Hebrew Israelite asks the Native American woman angrily.

“That’s right,” says one of his coreligionists, “little corny-ass Billy Bob.”

The boys don’t respond to this provocation, although one of them smiles at being called a corny-ass Billy Bob. They seem interested in what is going on, in the way that it’s interesting to listen to Hyde Park speakers.

The Native woman isn’t interested in attacking the white boys. She keeps up her argument with the Black Hebrew Israelites, and her line of reasoning is so powerful that it throws the preacher off track.

“She trying to be distracting,” one of the men says. “She trying to stop the flow.”

“You’re out of order,” the preacher tells the woman. “Where’s your husband? Let me speak to him.”
Did any of the feminists who insist Trump hates women find that objectionable? Not a peep!

Katie Herzog wrote a piece at The Stranger titled: "I Thought the MAGA Boys Were Shit-Eating Monsters. Then I Watched the Full Video." Here's her take from the full video:
The men, who looked to be in their 30s or 40s, maybe younger, were taunting the kids from Covington High. Perhaps thinking he had a message that would really resonate with kids in MAGA hats, the man who seems to be leading the group tells the kids to look up some videos on YouTube of Donald Trump kissing Rudy Giuliani. “Your president is a homosexual,” he yells out, probably, like me, expecting the kids to object.

And that is when I started to get confused because the reaction from the boys wasn’t disgust or even protest. Instead, several of them spoke out, “Who cares?” “Yeah, who cares?”

“Your president is a homosexual,” the street preacher yells back. “You give faggots rights,” and then, the crowd of MAGA hat-wearing boys actually starts booing. “The Bible condemns homosexuality,” the street preacher yells, and one of the boys calls out, “They’re still human!”
Rather than jeer agreement with the homophobic slurs by the BHI the Covington kids acted with the kind of sensitivity that would be applauded by the left were they not wearing MAGA hats. Yet, still no condemnation of the blatant homophobia of the BHI. I suppose next the Covington kids will be attacked for disrepecting the BHI by booing their hate speech!

Herzog's description continues:
They not only drag the Native Americans for "worshipping eagles" and other animals, they tell a black student from Covington High that his white friends are going to harvest his organs. “Get out,” they tell him, presumably referring to the 2017 film. “Hey!” one of the white boys says to his black classmate, “But we love you!”
And these teens expressing love for their black classmate are supposed to be racist?

Covington Teens the Real Adults

Chief Full of Bull LIED about the Covington teens. "I was scared," Phillips told CNN's Sara Sidner. "I don't like the word 'hate.' I don't like even saying it, but it was hate unbridled. It was like a storm." Yes, and YOU helped create it with your lies.

The Black Hebrew Israelites are a racist, bigoted, homophobic, sexist group. Yet none of the great and good in the news media wants to call either of those parties out for their actions. Instead they trashed CHILDREN who behaved with more good sense and grace than all these other fools. And every person who attacked them and repeated the lies or overlooked the hate coming from Phillips or BHI is just as culpable. Those who ignored the hate and hated the teens are, well, HATERS and deserve no respect from anyone!

Nathan Phillips LIED About Vietnam War Record and Media Barely Notices

They didn't bother to check their facts before they condemned Covington teens and they blindly accepted every word from serial liar Chief Full of Bull!

Reporters were so eager to attack CHILDREN and unleash a wave of hate and hysteria that they didn't bother nor seem to care that they were spreading a lie. It all began with a short video clip which showed Nick Sandmann, a student from Covington Catholic High School standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial while Nathan Phillips, a Native American activist banged a drum in his face.  That clip, started from a fake Twitter account from possible Russian sources got the ball rolling. Putin must be laughing his ass off at all the useful idiots who said, and STILL say, the most vile things about these children.

In subsequent reporting the account of the episode by Phillips, whom we will call Chief Full of Bull, was reported unquestionably, including descriptions of him as Vietnam veteran.  But Phillips never served in Vietnam. He left the Marine Corps as a Private after disciplinary issues (lying perhaps?) and was never deployed.  The media still refused to assign blame to Phillips suggesting it was just a mistake and that Full of Bull never lied about being in Vietnam. Except that he did. Repeatedly.  It got so bad that Washington Post reporter Dan Lamothe put this on Twitter:
More videos and postings by Full of Bull claiming "valor" for his service in Vietnam. He was actually a refrigerator technician during his time in the Marines but never overseas:
At least failed Democrat presidential candidate and ace windbag John Kerry threw away his Vietnam medals. Phillips never actually received any for Vietnam despite his claim.

The point here is that the media lionized Full of Bull and allowed him to serve as the linchpin for their credibility in a story falsely attacking CHILDREN.  Makes you wonder what else they might not be careful about checking if it sought to make Trump or his supporters look bad:
Even worse, there are people STILL lying about the Covington teens and still lying about Full of Bull. As I have said before their souls have been corrupted by lies and hate. That's all they have left!

FLASHBACK: Chief Full of Bull leads anti-American pipeline protest that destroys the land and pollutes air and water!

Front and center is the esteemed Native American Nathan Phillips, aka Chief Full of Bull leading a protest in North Dakota against the Keystone Pipeline.  Note the upside down and defaced American flag!
That protest claimed to be one in which Native Americans were protecting the land, air and water.  Instead, the turned the area of their camp into a toxic waste zone that created an environmental hazard. They even abandoned dogs and puppies!
Star Tribune: CANNON BALL, N.D. — Authorities this week cleared the last holdouts from a large Dakota Access pipeline protest camp on federal land in North Dakota, but it will be a while before the region returns to normal.
"This was beautiful North Dakota prairie in a sensitive watershed area," Gov. Doug Burgum said of the square-mile protest camp at the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers. "It's only use prior to this was for cattle grazing."
Meanwhile, workers are racing against time to clean up hundreds of tons of debris at the camp before spring melt floodwaters wash it into the rivers. Trash and structures need to be cleared, some garbage will have to be dug up, and soil contamination from such things as fuel and human waste might also need to be removed.
Does this look like people who care about the land, air and water?

Imagine if the Covington teens went on a camping trip and left a mess like this on "sacred" land? Think the media would cover that?

Russians Did It? Covington Catholic Critics Are Putin Puppets!

The same people who go berserk about Russian meddling in U.S. politics are the "useful idots" promoting false Russian claims of racism by Covington teens!

You ever wonder how something like the Big Lie about the Covington Catholic teens harassing a Native American Vietnam Vet gets started?  Well, turns out that once people started looking for the "trigger" they found tell tale signs of a possible Russian Twitter operation.

We already know that Twitter trolls working for the Russian government at the direction of Vladimir Putin used fake Twitter and Facebook accounts to stoke racial unrest in the U.S. before and after Trump's election.  There is every indication that they continue to do this. And why not?  It works. Gullible left wing racebaiters leap at the chance to spread hate and hysteria and don't seem to mind at all that it's A. not true and B. backed by Russians.

In the case of the Covington teens, Twitter suspended a dubious account with the username @2020fight which was set up a few weeks after Trump was elected in November 2016.  CNN has the initial details. It was this Twitter account which first spread the misleading video which purported to show Native American Nathan Phillips, aka Chief Full of Bull, surrounded by the Covington teens and omitting the part where Phillips purposely walked up to the teens.

Tracking the account directly to Russian sources will take time as the investigations in 2017 showed. CNN's Tech reporter who wrote the initial stories also tweeted this:
That's right. All you folks who STILL think the Covington Catholic kids are racists who disrespected Chief Full of Bull, despite the clear video evidence, are actually serving as Putin's puppets to sow hate and hysteria in the United States. Putin thanks you!

Some retractions and corrections but the Big Lie persists!

a few chinks in the armor of the Big Lie. Most notably, the corrections about Phillips war record. In short, he doesn't have one. Here's the original Washington Post tweet:
Phillips lied about Vietnam service

The New York Times and other media also referred to Phillips as a Vietnam vet. But, Phillips, aka Chief Full of Bull, never served in Vietnam. He lied about it. But that didn't stop the entire Trump hating media from reporting that he did. Now that WaPo and others have made a correction, will anyone who took offense at the first report see it?

And for those who continue to lie about what happened, another video clip clearly showing the Covington kids minding their own business and singing their school song while Full of Bull walks right up to them. He sought to provoke a reaction and the best he got was Nick Sandmann's smirk. But that's enough for Sandmann and his parents to be killed and the school burned down with the kids locked inside!
Let's review. National Review, which initially jumped on the hate Covington bandwagon has reflected on the facts. Perhaps others should do the same:
If you’re in a public place and someone starts heckling you, are you entitled to heckle back? How about if someone does something much worse than heckling you in a public place? What if that person in fact takes a drum up to you and starts banging it in your face? Are you entitled to heckle back? How about smirking? Are you allowed to smirk?
To put it another way, if you were minding your own business in a public place and someone came right up to you and put a drum up to your face and made a huge racket inches from your nose, would you be happy about it?
I’d say their reaction was if anything more restrained than you would expect from teenagers. I’d advise them to do better next time. I certainly wouldn’t consider expulsion. Phillips, on the other hand, is an adult, and he repeatedly lied about what happened to the Washington Post, which was utterly taken in by him and reported everything he said uncritically.
Phillips, on the other hand, is an adult, and he repeatedly lied about what happened to the Washington Post, which was utterly taken in by him and reported everything he said uncritically.

It would have been revolting if Nathan Phillips had been minding his own business doing a tribal chant while a gang of kids swarmed around him and started jeering. That’s what many media outlets reported: “Boys in ‘Make America Great Again’ Hats Mob Native Elder at Indigenous Peoples March,” ran a New York Times headline over a story that said “a throng of cheering and jeering high school boys” were “surrounding a Native American elder.”

That isn’t what happened. Phillips was the aggressor in the situation. It’s a curious feature of our culture that people aggressively seek to be victimized, go out of their way in hopes of getting punched in the face, but here we are. People do that because they know the media hand out condemnation based on perceived ranking in the victim hierarchy.
Phillips has on at least one other occasion gotten himself into what he says was a racist altercation with a group of youths. This one, four years ago, also involved him approaching others, in this case a group of college students. (“Why did Phillips go over to the fence? Why not just walk away?” wondered a reporter. “For me just to walk by and have a blind eye to it,” Phillips said. “Something just didn’t allow me to do it.”)

Friday he waded into a group of Covington students, evidently hoping to troll a response out of them suitable for a viral video. According to the Washington Post, Phillips, 64, said that he felt threatened by the teens and that they swarmed around him as he and other activists were wrapping up the march and preparing to leave. This is a lie. They didn’t swarm around him. He strolled right into the middle of their group.
Phillips then pivoted to a completely different version of his story with the Detroit Free Press, in which he admitted that he approached the students, not the other way around. His interviews and the various videos of the incident paint a picture of him saying he is a) terrified of the Catholic students yet b) walking right up to and into their group; a) doing his best to leave yet b) pressing forward insistently; a) trying to go up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial yet b) not noticing that there is a clear path up those steps approximately ten feet to his right.
Nathan Phillips went out seeking to create an incident, and he fooled the New York Times and the Washington Post into accepting his false version of it.
Full of Bull fooled a lot more people than the useful idiots at the Washington Post and NY Times. The sad part is that while many have realized and admitted their mistake a great number refuse to even concede they were manipulated and lied to. But this has been typical of the entire Hate Trump hysteria media which lurches from one fake news story to the next.

Full of Bull goes to Catholic Cathedral and attempts to disrupt Mass

Showing his true colors the next day Full of Bull takes his traveling Indian show to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. He and his pow wow of drum beaters attempted to enter the Basilica during Mass which would have caused a major disruption. It's an unprecedented situation where guards were forced to lock the doors and later described the "anger" coming from this group. It doesn't take a genius to see where the real hate and disrespect is coming from here. Too bad so many on the left cling to that anger and hate. They have nothing left!

Fake Story on Racist High School Trump Supporters Shows Why No One Should Believe News About Trump

Once again, we see the Big Lie of the left at work!

Whose the racist liar here?
It seems the hate Trump media can't go more than 48 hours before letting loose another whopper. Last Thursday it was the bombshell that Trump told his attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. Not a word of it was true but that didn't stop 24 hours of hate Trump hysterics in the media. In a bid to change the subject from their Big Lie exposed, the Trump haters came up with a new one on Saturday. This time a bunch of white high school students wearing Trump hats were said to mob an innocent Native American outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.
Nathan Phillips, a Vietnam War veteran and elder in the Omaha tribe, was in Washington, DC on Friday for an Indigenous People's March through the city. Towards the end of the evening, he claims he noticed a large group of Covington Catholic high school boys attacking four black adults. In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, he says he was forced to stand "between beast and prey." Phillips claims the white boys were the beasts while the black people were their prey. He began to drum an Intertribal song to help quell the "mob mentality" forming. That is when the group supposedly surrounded him, causing him to fear for his safety.

"The looks in these young men's faces ... I mean, if you go back and look at the lynchings that was done (in America) ...and you'd see the faces on the people ... The glee and the hatred in their faces, that's what these faces looked like," Phillips said.
Look at the kid above. Standing there just minding his own business with a slight smile on his face. Meanwhile, Phillips got in his face with his drum.

The media ran with the story of white teens in MAGA hats behaving like racists. At least until a recorded live stream video of the entire event along with other videos surfaced showing that these reports were entirely false.

The kids were there to catch their bus home. As they waited a nearby group of black supremacists began taunting them. It's ALL on tape:
Calling the group of Catholic school boys “faggots” and “sodomites”
Somehow defending Bill Cosby
Threatening injury to a man on a hoverboard
Calling a group of white children “future school shooters”
“There will be no peace until blood is shed”
“The nation of Nubia will destroy America”
Calling black friends of the MAGA hat wearers the n-word
These black racists are the people Chief Full of Bull is said to be defending.

24 hours later as the full video evidence was unearthed, the mainstream media that gleefully reported the original story had to eat crow. But the damage was already done. Across the country the teens had been condemned. Even priests in their sermons denounced their behavior. But how many people saw the correction?
Despite the retraction, Trump haters are still running with the phony story. One commenter on Tapper's Twitter thread cites the teens as chanting "build the wall" as proof they are racist. Yet the recorded livestream of the entire event shows not one instance of where this happened. The lie is out there and it's good enough for the Trump haters.

And right on cue, the same people who complain about toxic masculinity and violence urged supporters to physically assault these teens.

Burn Children alive and shoot them but Twitter has NOT banned him!

Shoot children and burn them alive! Kill their families, put them in woodchippers. This is what Nancy Pelosi calls "free speech."  And somehow it's all Trump's fault!

Once again, the Trump hating hysterics have sold their soul for a LIE. And they keep on selling it no matter what!

Buzzfeed: Another Lie About Trump Exposed. If Trump is So Awful, Why Do They Have to Make It Up?

Trump's critics have no credibility. Truth isn't something they value.  But still, they know the Big Lie works so they keep on with their fake news!

Oh, the Trump haters really got excited when Buzzfeed published an article claiming Trump instructed his Attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.  This is it they said, the smoking gun, we've got him. Now we will impeach him. A cacophony of Trump hysterics took to the airwaves to say the word "impeachment" over and over on Thursday and Friday. Approximately 200 times on CNN and MSNBC.

Except it was all a giant lie. Another in a LONG LIST of lies told about Trump.

While it's gratifying that Trump haters suddenly take lying to Congress seriously and consider it a crime their hypocrisy is showing. Have any of these hysterics demanded prosecution of arch deep state coup plotters Comey, Clapper or Brennan?  All three have been CREDIBLY accused of lying to Congress. Sadly, you won't find anyone on CNN or MSNBC calling for their prosecution. Likewise when Justice Kavanaugh accusers were referred for prosecution for lying to Congress. Nothing but crickets from today's Trump hysterics.

No, once again we see the Big Lie in action. Put a bombshell report out there that if true might have serious ramifications.  A day or two later it's exposed as false but the damage is already done.  Say the word "impeachment" a couple hundred times and it's bound to get picked up by even casual news observers who likely will never see the correction.

It's the same story of lies and fake news that has been repeated over and over by the Trump haters. Yet one wonders: if Trump is really as awful as they say why do they have to make it up?  There is still NO EVIDENCE that Trump did anything wrong in connection with Russia and the 2016 campaign.  At this stage it's obvious that the fake news crowd doesn't care about the truth.  Lies are their weapon of choice and the truth is their first victim.

As I said below about Brexit scaremongering, once you sell your soul to fear and lies there is no way back.  The Trump hating hysterics have lost their soul!


From Michael Goodwin's Sunday column in the New York Post:
While BuzzFeed alone created the false report, which was based, naturally, on anonymous sources, it was not alone in revealing its desire to be rid of Trump. Much of the political class embraced the story without doubts because they wanted it to be true. Dems in Congress instantly pledged investigations.

Then there are the so-called journalists who swallowed the ­report without trying to confirm it themselves. Many touted it as the Holy Grail while inserting the ridiculous phrase, “if it’s true.”

Not so long ago, no respected journalist or news organization would go public with something unless they had enough evidence to reach the conclusion it was true. The bigger the story, the higher the threshold of necessary evidence.

Not Friday. Then the biggest possible story was presented with the least possible evidence. “If it’s true” is an admission of malpractice.

To use it as a shield while reporting an accusation of massive significance violates every conceivable standard. Real journalists do not report something, then caution that it may not be true.

You certainly don’t accuse the president, or anyone else, of a crime unless you are persuaded by evidence it is true.
What if the media had treated the Birther charge against Obama with the same hysteric zeal as every false allegation against Trump?

Yank's View: Exposing Lies of Fear Campaign Reason "No Deal" Brexit Is Resisted

We've seen these scare tactics before. They are used to manipulate public opinion and must be exposed!
Y2K, another in a long line of baseless fears!
In 1999 I was assigned to write a cover story on the looming Y2K apocalypse.  Remember that?  Computer chips would go berserk when at the dawn of the new millennium the two digit code for the year flipped from "99" for 1999 to "00" for 2000.  Everything with a chip in it might cease to function. Planes could fall from the sky, safety controls in nuclear power plants might cease to function. Your bank account would be zeroed out.

Of course none of that happened.  The fearmongers claimed it was because they warned you in time so you could update your computer chips.  But we all know that is totally bogus. Even with older hardware life went on.

At least the Y2K scare was not used to promote a political agenda. Unfortunately, those kinds of scares are more common.  Over the last 30 years how many times have we been told we have just ten years to get serious about global warming or we are all doomed? And every year we're told is the hottest on record.  We should all be fried by now.  The sky is falling crowd uses fear of a climate apocalypse to promote their radical vision of a green utopia. Dystopia more like it!

In party politics recall how the left insisted Reagan's strong stand against the Soviets would result in nuclear war. Remember the movie about nuclear winter?  But when Reagan won the Cold War without firing a shot and the nuclear threat vanished those same folks refused to give him creditor admit they were wrong.

Before the 2016 presidential election in the United States Dems predicted that a Trump win would mean an immediate crash of the stock market and the economy.  Even with the recent correction the market is still well above what it was when Obama was President.

You get the point. Fearmongering is a common tactic used to manipulate the public.  Despite the number of times these fears have been proved groundless the tactic continues.

No Deal Brexit Best Deal?

Here I have to admit I was wrong. When the fear campaign to convince British voters to remain in the European Union failed I thought that was the end of it.  The Brits would just get on with it and everything would work be tickety-boo.  But just as in the U.S. where anti-Trump hysteria increased after he was elected, a political movement showed that there were people who would say anything to overturn the will of the people as expressed at the ballot box.

So now here we are two and a half years since the vote and the fear campaign not only continues but intensifies as the deadline for Brexit approaches in a few weeks. Imagine if the people who have spent all this time "remoaning" about their loss in the referendum had instead directed that energy towards working out the logistical challenges. But no, fearmongering is a hard habit to break.

Instead of acting on the instructions of the British people expressed through the referendum vote Prime Minister Theresa May sought to appease the remoaners and bureaucrats in Brussels with an exit plan that was rejected initially by many of her own cabinet colleagues and ultimately in a historic humiliating parliamentary defeat.  After witnessing that slow train wreck I have little faith in her to come up with a "plan B."

It is entirely possible that the only way forward will be a hard Brexit.  Would that be so bad?  Certainly there would be some challenges but does anyone really believe that calamity will ensue?  Scaremongers warn there will be no food or drugs. The Channel Tunnel will close and contact with the continent will grind to a halt.  Would remaining members of the E.U. really want to cut off sales to one of their largest markets?  Hardly.

Common sense is usually the first victim of a fear campaign. But as Abraham Lincoln once said "you can't fool all of the people all the time."  Common sense appears to be alive and well at least in some British circles.  Watch this:

No doubt the fearmongers will fight tooth and nail to avoid a hard Brexit. Not because it's a terrible idea but more because it exposes the lies they have told to manipulate the people and undermine democracy. It's the same sad story in the U.S. with Trump. Once you sell your soul to hate and fear you can't stop!

Dem's Racist Attacks on 19 Year Old Black Republican. Youngest Elected Black Official and Potential First Black President!

Elected in WV district that voted 70% for Trump he shows who the real racists are!

When a white Republican wins on a platform of "God, guns and babies" determined by his strong Christian beliefs, pro-second amendment and pro-life views and opposition to affirmative action he can expect to be attacked as a white supremacist. When he's a 19 year old college student who happens to be black he's the target of racist attacks by the Dems, those lovers of tolerance and diversity.

Introduce yourself to Caleb Hanna. The newly elected State Representative in the West Virginia legislature. He's a churchgoer who has strong family values and humility. Exactly the same characteristics that are lacking into today's crop of celebrity seeking young Democrats. But we likely won't see his face in the mainstream media. A young black man who doesn't fit the mold of racial grievance so common on the left.

Trump voters had no problem voting for a young black man. Racist attacks came from the left!
Hanna's success in winning against a Democrat incumbent wasn't based on big money donations or the good old boy network.  He did it the old fashioned way, he worked for it. He had no big victory party funded by lobbyists. He went with his Mom and Dad to the local McDonald's and monitored election night returns on his phone. He won by over 25 points.

Initially inspired by Obama's success, he soured quickly as he noted “I felt Obama’s policies were bad for West Virginia.”

Read his story in the Charleston Gazette-Mail. An excerpt follows:
Hanna is a fresh face and a rising star in the GOP, which is strange when you consider that it was Barack Obama who was his inspiration.

“I first got interested in politics in the third grade,” he said. “Here was this charismatic black man who rose to be president of the United States. I thought, ‘I can do that.’”

But President Obama’s policies did not sit well with the son of a coal miner.

“My dad got laid off in the mines,” he said. “I felt Obama’s policies were bad for West Virginia.”

So when it came time for Hanna to register to vote, he was a Republican.

“God, guns and babies,” he said. “That pretty much sums up my political philosophy.”

His faith informs much of his worldview. He was an active member of the Christian organization YoungLife at Richwood High School. He is also a member of the Little Laurel Baptist. His girlfriend, a freshman at WVU, is the daughter of a pastor at another church.

Hanna is a firm defender of Second Amendment rights and the rights of the unborn. The Democrats, at least on the national level, did not reflect those values for him.
Caleb attends West Virginia State University, an all black college and was successful in registering 100% of his classmates to vote. A new crop of black Republicans. Naturally, that made him a target:
Hanna bristled at the suggestion that the Republican Party is characterized by some as racist. “There’s room for everyone in the GOP,” he said.

He is keenly aware, however, that racism is still a problem. He believes he was the target of racist attacks during his campaign. Flyers containing virulent racist claims, which were enclosed in a ziplock bag filled with birdseed, were tossed into the yards of several homes that had his campaign signs.

“I reported it to the sheriff only because I was concerned about the safety of my supporters,” Hanna said.

Unlike today's celebrity Democrats, Caleb is still living in his dorm room while he juggles school and duties at the state legislature. He's a model for millions of young black men and women who saw firsthand how empty the promises of Obama and the Democrats were for black Americans. They are no longer on the plantation and that might explain why Democrats are so desperate to import millions of illiterate illegal aliens to take their place!

House and Senate Dems Party on the Beach in Puerto Rico with Dozens of Lobbyists While Federal Workers Go Without Pay

Yeah, Dem's concern for those impacted by the shutdown is SO sincere!

What do Dems do when they declare a crisis over a government shutdown impacting rank and file government workers?  Why, they head off to Puerto Rico to five star resorts where they are wined and dined by lobbyists on the beach!

Oh sure, the usual malarkey with some phony meeting on hurricane cleanup (how long did that last? 30 minutes?) then party, party, party with Wall Street fat cats and lobbyists for the uber-rich.

Meanwhile, President Trump canceled a meeting of global tycoons in Davos, Switzerland to stay in Washington, a city gripped by a winter snow storm, to negotiate on resolving the current government shutdown.  Who will he negotiate with?  The janitor at the DNC?

Tell me again which is the party of the rich and who really cares about working people?  It ain't this bunch!

In 2014 No One Questioned Obama's Declaration of a "Crisis" on the Border. Media Parroted the Line. Now they Trash Trump for Using the SAME LANGUAGE!

The Trump-hate media hypocrites have no shame. And no conscience either!

Compare the language Obama and Trump used to describe a "crisis" on the border:

From the Washington Examiner:
"We now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the borer that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all," then-President Barack Obama said in the Rose Garden in 2014. "In recent weeks we've seen a surge of unaccompanied children arrive at the border, brought here and to other countries by smugglers and traffickers."
The Washington Post on July 12, 2014, referred to "the current crisis on the Southwest border, where authorities have apprehended tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children since October ..." The story's lead author was Karen Tumulty, now a columnist for the Post, who completely dismissed the idea of any crisis at the border this week.

"We are headed to this extraordinary situation where the president declares a state of emergency, which does not exist, and the law does not really explain what we do if the president manufactures an emergency," she said Tuesday on MSNBC.

On June 5, 2014, a New York Times article began, "This is what it looks like when an immigration system is overwhelmed by tens of thousands of women and children from Central America." It further noted that, "The Federal Emergency Management Agency has been ordered to coordinate efforts to contain the crisis."

The Times editorial board this week, however, said that the crisis is actually "in the Oval Office."
Republicans and conservative media didn't denounce Obama for a "manufactured crisis." There was no caterwauling of deeply personal criticism of Obama on this issue. The only disagreement Republicans had was on the substance of policy not attacks on motive.

More evidence that Democrats will SAY ANYTHING to undermine Trump expecting that their supporters will neither remember, nor care, that they said the exact same thing just a few years ago!

"Manufactured Crisis?" FACT: Tens of Thousands of Americans Dead Because Dems Won't Permit Border Security

Dems who claim to care about the little people have forgotten about those killed by drug overdoses and gang violence due to open borders!

The chorus of left wing parrots are at it again. Speaking in unison they declare that the border crisis is a "manufactured crisis."  Practically every Dem from House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Schumer on down along with their media puppets has used the phrase.

Of course these folks know all about how to manufacture a crisis.  Just think of the unfounded hysteria they use to promote their climate crisis agenda despite the FACT that temperatures are not rising and the long declared list of horrors from global warming have yet to emerge after thirty years of screaming "the sky is falling!"

Does this look like a "manufactured crisis?"

How many Americans have died from global warming?  ZERO!  Compare that to the growing number who die every year from a drug overdose. This from the National Institute on Drug Abuse:
How many more Americans will die in this "manufactured crisis?"
According to the Center for Disease Control There has been a five-fold increase between 2010 and 2017 in the rate of death from heroin. The rate for deaths from synthetic opoids, as depicted in the chart above is even higher. The CDC calls this an "epidemic."  Isn't that just another word for crisis?

Is this a manufactured crisis? Every week hundreds of Americans, mostly young people, are killed by overdoses of illegal drugs. And where do these drugs come from? Most come across the southern border. This is from a presentation by the Department of Homeland Security:

The contention by the "manufactured crisis" crowd that these drugs are mostly coming across the border at open ports of entry is a flat out lie. Read the words of Mark Morgan, Border Patrol Chief during the Obama Administration in a recent interview:
“So I want to run a couple of facts by you that I watched journalists tell me last night in the fact check segments. The first is that drugs don’t really come across our border. They come through our ports, is that true?” Carlson asked.

“Again, a complete disingenuous statement. So you want to say, because more drugs enter the points of entry, therefore it’s not a problem in between the ports? That’s just fictitious,” Morgan answered. “It is correct that more drugs, enter through the points of entry. Tucker, millions and millions of pounds of drugs still enter through the ports of entry.”
How many thousands of Americans will die THIS YEAR because Democrats are in denial about the problem and prefer to play semantic games with the lives of our children?

Are these funerals "manufactured?"

Funeral of Cpl. Ronil Singh (a LEGAL immigrant), police officer in Newman, California killed by illegal alien:

It's not just police officers killed by illegals every year. It's also children:

Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas murdered by MS-13 gang members.

NY Post:
Nothing was left of 20-year-old Michael Banegas’ face after he was killed by MS-13 members. His killers had forced him to kneel and tied a plastic bag around his head. Suffocation was the cause of death. But Banegas’ mutilated body, found with those of three other young men in a Central Islip park in April, told a story of the gang’s savagery. Hacked with a machete, his face had no nose, no lips, no cheeks; it was just a mass of bloody tissue and broken bones. It’s unclear if Banegas was butchered before or after he died.

The second victim was his cousin Jefferson Villalobos, who was just shy of his 19th birthday. The killers had left half his face, but his uncle could identify the corpse only from a tattoo on an arm — an image of praying hands clutching a rosary with the phrase, “In God’s hands.”

The face of the youngest victim, Justin Llivicura, 16, was also hacked with a machete. His family noticed one of his ears was severed when they saw a video of the bodies sent to them by members of the gang.

The fourth body has been identified as that of another teen, Jorge Tigre, 18.
For the family of slain teen Justin Llivicura, don't worry. Your grief is "manufactured."
Thousands of children and older American citizens have been killed by illegal aliens. It;s likely that all of these Americans would be alive today if the border was secure. The response from Dems? Deny the facts and label groups that advocate for the families of those slain by illegals as hate groups.

Dems: We "reject your facts!"

In a meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said "I reject your facts." Pelosi and open borders Dems spit in the face of victim's families all because they hate Trump and pander to illegal aliens.

It wasn't so long ago that they sang a different tune. But that was before Trump was elected.  In 2013 Sen. Chuck Schumer proposed a bill that added $7.5 billion for border barriers.  But now Trump wants it and no dice!

Dem's new mantra: murder Americans? No big deal. Advocate for the families of the slain or the victims of drug overdose and you belong to a hate group!

Mitt Romney Doesn't Get It: Those Now Praising His Criticism of Trump Never Did, Never Will Vote for Him

And Romney insults the people who did with his attacks on Trump!

I'm reminded of Cheryl Mills, who in defending Bill Clinton against impeachment said "an investigation never fed a hungry child."  Great line. Too bad Dems didn't really mean it. Ms. Mills would go on to help Hillary cover up the destruction of thousands of emails containing god knows what!

Sort of a round about way to bring us to Mitt Romney.  He seems to think that by attacking Trump in an op-ed in the Washington Post days before Mitt is sworn in as a Senator from Utah that he's standing for something.  Well perhaps he is. Once again Mitt is standing for Mitt and that's about it.  The results will be as disappointing as his prior forays into presidential politics and the country will be worse off again because of it.

Romney isn't achieving anything with this stunt than staking out a claim to be the latest Trump hating Republican in the U.S. Senate.  If only Mitt had fought so hard against Obama we might have been spared the last few years.

Sadly, foolish Mitt, like John McCain, will never get the votes from the left wingers now praising his conscience.  Does anyone really think that the Democrat media, including the Washington Post, which harped on Mitt's pranks in high school (a precursor to the Kavanaugh smears) would suddenly back Mitt if he were once again the GOP nominee?

Foolish Mitt!

Why was I so uncomfortable standing eyeball to eyeball with Mitt Romney 11+ years ago after a campaign event on Hilton Head Island, SC?  I've been up close and personal with plenty of presidential candidates. And Presidents!

No, there was something else to it.  When I asked him whether he was a real conservative and how would his Massachusetts roots play in primaries in the South he said he was a "Yankee with southern values."  Riiigghhhttt!

Mitt did finally get the 2012 GOP presidential nomination then promptly blew the election because he was afraid to confront Obama or even defend himself in debates.  Nothing has changed.

Apparently the only thing Mitt is good for is attacking a Republican President.  He'll get lots of media kudos for doing so. But he won't get any votes. He accepted President Trump's endorsement of his campaign and now knifes him in the back. We need another Mitt about as much as we need more Bushes!
