The double standard of the left: You’re either for civility and law or you just joke about it

The appropriately named “doofus” who jokes about “chocy” milk and battery…

Guess which side the proggies favor…

TDS-infected libtards change their rules every day. They claim to be the “tolerant” party yet cannot act in a civil manner in our society (just ask Tucker Carlson). See the following:

I came across this tweet by some “doofus” who tweeted the following:

“The right: you f*cking pussy ass liberal Cucks. Also the right: hello police, mean lady throw chocy milk at me.”doo

The “doofus” was referring to the incident that I told you about when an unhinged intern for demorat Andrew Gillum was arrested for battery for throwing chocolate milk on a group of College Republicans tabling on campus.

Granted having chocolate milk thrown on you is no big deal…or is it?

In a civil society, people can control their emotions and actions and not break laws. They can act civil toward one another. They can also respect personal boundaries.

Yet the left ended the rules of civility on November 8, 2016 when President Trump was elected.

Let’s take a look at the definition of battery that most civilized societies recognize, shall we?

The definition of battery, from Wikipedia: Battery is a criminal offense involving the unlawful physical acting upon a threat, distinct from assault which is the act of creating apprehension of such contact.

Battery is a specific common law misdemeanor, although the term is used more generally to refer to any unlawful offensive physical contact with another person, and may be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Battery was defined at common law as “any unlawful and or unwanted touching of the person of another by the aggressor, or by a substance put in motion by him.” In most cases, battery is now governed by statutes, and its severity is determined by the law of the specific jurisdiction.”

Given the unhinged antics of the left today, are we to assume that the unwanted touching of a deranged liberal with an unwanted substance is to be accepted?

I have a question for the doofus: Would you not be mad and do nothing if something was thrown at your girlfriend by an unknown person? Would you sit back and let her take it? Are you such a Soy Boy that you would allow people to freely throw things at your girlfriend in a threatening manner?

Do you care nothing about her personal safety? Are you not concerned about what the unknown assailant might throw at her or what they might do to her next?

Doofus can joke about “chocy” milk all he (and I use that term loosely) wants.

Real Americans care about the rule of law. And any real man would stand up and protect their gal from ANY kind of battery, instead of joking about it.

Yet we all know that demorats care nothing about the rule of law (see sanctuary status, Florida elections, Benghazi, private servers, etc.) unless it benefits THEIR ideals.

In my eyes the real p*ssy is one that arbitrarily condones legal violence against an opposing political party, as long as he can turn it into a joke. Such a brave doofus…

And that’s the double standard of the left.

Americans turn against the biased Hate America Media (HAM) with open hostility

Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats).

And no wonder.

Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists identified themselves as Republicans? In fact, the percentage of Republican journalists continues to decline — from 25.7% in 1971, to 18.8% in 1982, to 16.4% in 1992, to 7.1% by 2013. No doubt the percentage is even less than 7.1% in 2018.

With the lawful election of Donald Trump to the presidency, the MSM have gone insane with vitriol and hate, showing that they really are the Hate America Media (HAM).

Here’s an example: a cartoon by New York Times editorial cartoonist Patrick Chappette, portraying U.S. soldiers’ mission as that of fighting Israel’s wars in the Middle East, and the soldiers refusing to defend America’s southern border against the impending invasion of thousands of “caravan migrants”.

No longer covert and sneaky, the Hate America Media have abandoned all pretenses at journalistic objectivity. An example of the HAM’s declaration of open warfare against Trump and his millions of “deplorable” supporters is the editorial board of the New York Times urging Democrats to go to war against a sitting President of the United States by deploying violent and unscrupulous “Godfather” mafia tactics.

Now, the American people are fighting back against the Hate America Media with open hostility, threats, and even physical attacks.

David Bauder reports for the Associated Press, October 29, 2018, that journalist associations are dispensing advice on safety and self-defense tips because of increasing anti-press incidents. The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) advise reporters to avoid one-person news crews; the National Press Photographers Association is developing workshops on safety. Chris Post, a photographer for WFMZ-TV in Allentown, Pennsylvania, said: “The environment has changed. I’ve witnessed the transition.”

The RTDNA has begun compiling anti-press incidents that it self-righteously calls the “press freedom tracker”. Last year, the first time a count was kept, there were 48 incidents; the count so far this year is 39, including:

  • The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five people were killed.
  • In October, an intruder was shot after kicking down glass doors at Fox’s local station in Washington, DC.
  • In Dallas, Texas, a man purposely crashed a pick-up truck into the side of a TV station.
  • In Miami, a reporter and a photographer were physically attacked while doing a live shot.
  • In North Carolina, a news crew had its power cable cut while covering a demonstration.
  • CNN correspondent Jim Acostawho is barred from the White House for being rude, combative, and assaulting a White House intern by putting his hand on her arm to stop her from doing her job — has been the target of chants and epithets when covering Trump rallies, including one recently where a man looked at him and made a motion like he was slitting a throat.
  • When WFMZ-TV photographer Chris Post arrived to cover an immigration rally, a man in a car asked him where he was going. Told it was a pro-immigration rally, the man became agitated and stepped on his accelerator, stopping just short of hitting Post. On the same day, a man shouted “fake news” at Post while driving by in a pick-up truck. Post said, “I’m 6-foot-5, 300 pounds. I’ve had somebody try to grab my camera. When it gets to that point, where does it stop? It’s a tough time to be a journalist.” But Post also had an experience while driving through a fast-food pickup line that gave him hope. He was handed a cup of coffee and told the woman in line ahead of him had bought it, wanting to pass along the message “thank you for what you do.”
  • Caitlin Penna, a freelance photographer from Durham, N.C., said she constantly has her guard up on assignments. Even her conservative family is suspicious of her. “I’m pretty sure my grandmother thinks I’m this far-left liberal because of the things I cover,” she said. One night she was unwinding at a local bar and struck up a conversation with a man nearby. When she discussed what she did, the man said, “you report fake news” and walked away.
  • Nic Coury, a freelance photographer who works in California’s affluent Monterey County, said: “Since the election, people are emboldened more.” Coury has been called part of the liberal scum media, an enemy of the state and told he and his colleagues lie all the time. When conservative Arizona politician and law enforcement officer Joe Arpaio made a local appearance, “it was like walking into the dragon’s lair.”

Some journalists are quitting because of the hostility. The hostility she’s felt from the public recently was one of the reasons why Los Angeles KNBC-TV news photographer Lori Bentley-Law decided to quit the business after 24 years.

In her blog post explaining why she was leaving, like other journalists such as Acosta who are devoid of introspection, Bentley-Law blames public hostility entirely on President Trump, as if his supporters are brain-dead zombies who can’t and don’t think on their own. She whined that when a president describes the press as enemies of the people, “attitudes shift and the field crews get the brunt of the abuse. And it’s not just from one side. We get it all the way around, pretty much on a daily basis.”

She says that although there are other factors that contributed to her desire to leave, including shoulder woes from carrying heavy equipment for many years and a constant diet of murders and other depressing story assignments, the current environment is definitely part of it. One recent day, a person in a Mercedes prevented her KNBC news van from getting off a highway until several exits beyond her destination. On another occasion, a man stuck his bare butt out the window and defecated. Bentley-Law wrote:

“I don’t want to be immersed in sadness every day. I don’t ever want a cute little girl in pigtails to look up at me and say, ‘We hate you.’ I don’t want to hear ‘fake news’ shouted at me anymore, or to be flipped off while driving my news van.”

Bentley-Law was flooded with texts and emails from frustrated journalists across the country who’d read her blog. Declining to be interviewed, Bentley-Law said via email: “I suppose my experience isn’t unique and certainly resonated.”

The Real America and Her God Loving Patriotic Citizens

A guest post by Kelleigh Nelson

“My definition, the definition that I’ve always believed in, is that esprit de corps means love for one’s own military legion – in my case, the United States Marine Corps. It means more than self-preservation, religion, or patriotism. I’ve also learned that this loyalty to one’s corps travels both ways: up and down.” -Chesty Puller

“Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.” -President Calvin Coolidge

Patriotic Americans receive devasting news every day…news that either makes them give up, or makes them fight even harder. We have to keep in mind that God is always in control…He always has been, and He always will be. And He tells us to think on the good things.

In Philippians 4:8, He says, “Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

This article is about the good things … those things that represent the true American spirit of patriotic and God-fearing citizens who love this country and will fight for her to their last breath.

Louisiana Governor Huey Long

Huey Pierce Long Jr. (August 30, 1893 – September 10, 1935), self-nicknamed “The Kingfish,” was an American politician who served as the 40th governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and as a member of the United States Senate from 1932 until his assassination in 1935. He was a Democrat and an outspoken populist. Had he not been assassinated, he may well have become President rather than Franklin Roosevelt.

When Huey ran for Governor of Louisiana, he made promises to the people. One of those promises was that if the rural communities gathered enough signed petitions requesting electricity, Governor Long would make sure they received their requests. My friend Joe told me the true story of how his grandfather gathered the signatures and gave the petitions to his son, Joe’s father.

Joe’s parents were married in the mid-1920s, and they lived in a rural Louisiana community. Joe’s young father delivered those petitions to Governor Long. Since Joe’s Dad lived on the other side of the Mississippi River, he had to walk several miles to the ferry, wait for it to come, and then ride it across the river and then walk a good distance to the State Capitol Building.

Back then you didn’t have to go through secretaries or wait for appointments, and Joe’s Dad simply told the secretary he needed to see the governor. He told Governor Long why he was there and that he had the signed petitions requesting rural electricity. The Governor picked up the phone and called someone and told him that he wanted electricity distributed for these rural citizens. Joe’s dad could hear both sides of the conversation, and when the Governor was told they couldn’t do it, Huey cussed him out and said, “I made a promise to the people, and God Dammit, you do it.”

Joe’s father thanked the Governor, made the long trek back to the ferry, and then the long walk back home. When he was sitting down for dinner, he looked out the window, and there were the trucks coming with all the equipment and the poles to string electric lines.

That’s how our government worked back then when politicians kept promises and Americans knew they could count on most of them keeping their word. Rural Louisiana was blessed with electricity.

In 1936, a year after Huey Long was assassinated, the Rural Electrification Act was passed which provided federal loans for the installation of electrical distribution systems to serve isolated rural areas of the United States.

President Nixon

Richard Milhous Nixon (January 9, 1913 – April 22, 1994) was the 37th President of the United States from 1969 until 1974. When he was a child, his mother read the Bible to him every single night. She actually told him that one day God would call on him and he should be ready.

On Yom Kippur October 6, 1973, the Holiest of days in the Jewish calendar, a coordinated surprise attack came against Israel. To demonstrate how much Israel was up against: 180 Israeli tanks faced over 1400 Syrian tanks; closer to the Suez Canal, a mere 436 Israeli infantry were poised to fight over 80,000 Egyptian soldiers, this even after Israel’s military buildup. The attacks by Egypt and Syria were backed by nine Arab states as well as one non-Arab state: The Soviet Union.

President Nixon was awakened at 3 a.m. with a call from Israel’s leader, Golda Meir. She told the President that they desperately needed America’s help to defend their nation. Nixon immediately heard the voice of his mother… “One day God will call on you, and you must be ready.”

The President knew that the only way to end the crisis and push out the Communist influence was to provide American arms to the Israelis in order to defeat Russian arms in the hands of the Syrians and Egyptians. Both Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and the President wanted to conduct the airlift, but according to CIA Director Vernon Walters, “Nixon gave it the greater sense of urgency. He said, ‘You get the stuff to Israel. Now. Now.’”

Things did not go particularly well for Israel over the next couple days, but as Israel started to push back the daily advances, the Nixon Administration initiated Operation Nickel Grass, an American airlift to replace all of Israel’s lost munitions. This was huge, planeload after planeload of supplies literally allowed munitions and materiel to seemingly re-spawn for the Israeli counter effort, 567 missions were flown throughout the airlift, dropping over 22,000 tons of supplies. An additional 90,000 tons of materiel were delivered by sea. According to Abraham Rabinovich, “While the American airlift of supplies did not immediately replace Israel’s losses in equipment, it did allow Israel to expend what it did have more freely.”

Richard Nixon’s role, and that of those within his Administration, in the Yom Kippur War has been credited with literally saving Israel from an onslaught of potentially devastating attacks. The President recognized the threat that an Arab victory posed, the “threat of victory by Soviet arms,” according to author Conrad Black. The Soviet government was the Arab world’s chief supplier of munitions, and was strategically attempting to spread its influence throughout the region.

Nixon stands out among presidents for taking the boldest risk for Israel: a much-needed arms airlift during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. An astonishing 567 missions by American aircraft (not to mention deliveries by sea and El Al flights) kept Israel fighting. Nixon ignored the counsel of Henry Kissinger, who wanted to allow the war to play out for a while longer to give Egyptian President Anwar Sadat the political cover he needed to make peace in its aftermath. The stakes were too high for Israel to play with timing, Nixon told Kissinger.

Nixon had little to gain and much to lose. He was in his second term and, in any case, the Republican was never going to win over the largely liberal Jewish vote. The airlift helped spur an Arab oil embargo, driving gasoline prices sky high. Preoccupied by Watergate and mired in Vietnam, and against the advice of his Jewish adviser, Nixon risked a new war with the Soviets to save Israel.

“Those were momentous events in world history,” noted historian Stephen Ambrose. “Had Nixon not acted so decisively, who can say what would have happened? The Arabs probably would have recovered at least some of the territory they had lost in 1967, perhaps all of it. They might have even destroyed Israel. But whatever the might-have-beens, there is no doubt that Nixon “made it possible for Israel to win, at some risk to his own reputation and at great risk to the American economy,” historian Stephen Ambrose said.

“He knew that his enemies would never give him credit for saving Israel. He did it anyway.”

A great quote from this much maligned American President was very telling, when he said, “Americans admire a people who can scratch a desert and produce a garden. The Israelis have shown qualities that Americans identify with: guts, patriotism, idealism, a passion for freedom. I have seen it. I know. I believe that.”

President Nixon saved our best friend in the middle east and he kept his promise to God and his momma.

Donald J. Trump

At President Trump’s last rally before the mid-term elections, he was in Rush Limbaugh’s hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Rush gave a rousing speech, and encouraged the audience to respond with all the slogans we’ve heard so many times.

Then as President Trump entered, Lee Greenwood sang his famous song, God Bless the USA. Trump smiled, waved, and then embraced both men and shook their hands.

Several minutes into his speech, a woman close to the dais fainted. Later we found out that she was diabetic and hadn’t eaten in a while. President Trump asked if there was a doctor in the house and while she was being cared for, he asked for prayer from the audience. A physician came and the President was silent for eight minutes until the lady was loaded on a gurney and taken to an ambulance. Trump said, “That’s one of our great people there.”

The audience watched as help came for the collapsed patriot and from the back of the crowd came voices raised in song.

In short order the entire audience joined in, singing the first verse of Amazing Grace. A chill went up my spine and a tear ran down my cheek as I watched these remarkable American patriots sing that wonderful song while one of their own was helped by paramedics as our President waited and watched.

Conclusion

There are many more stories of America’s greatness, we all know that, but these three things from history epitomize the soul of this country, her people, and her greatest leaders, even with their faults and foibles. As our Lord says, and as we must constantly do: Think on the good things.

Racial, gender, age, education and religious differences in 2018 midterm elections

Using exit poll data by the National Election Pool, as reported by CNN, Pew Research Center determined that “The stark demographic and educational divisions that have come to define
American politics were clearly evident in voting preferences in the
2018 congressional elections.”

Reporting for Pew on November 8, 2018, Alec Tyson describes those divisions:

  • Nationally, voters favored Democratic candidates for Congress over
    Republican candidates by a margin of about 7%.
  • Gender: Women generally favored Democratic candidates by 19% (59% to 40%) while men voted for Republicans 51% to
    47%. As was the case in the 2016 presidential election, white men voted
    Republican by a wide margin (60% to 39%) while white women were evenly divided
    (49% favored Democrats; 49% supported Republicans).
  • Race: Whereas Whites favored Republicans over Democrats by 54% vs. 44%, Blacks voted overwhelmingly (90%) for Democrats,
    including comparable shares of black men (88%) and black women (92%). Hispanics favored Democrats over Republicans 69% v. 29%. Asians favored Democrats over Republicans 77% v. 23%.
  • College education: When gender, race and education are considered together, women college
    graduates stand out for their strong preference for the Democratic
    candidate (59% favored the Democrat while just 39% voted Republican).
    Whites with less education – particularly men – supported the
    Republican. White men who do not have a college degree voted Republican
    by about two-to-one (66% to 32%).
  • Age: The age divide in voting, which barely existed in the early 2000s, also
    is large. Majorities of voters ages 18 to 29 (67%) and 30 to 44 (58%)
    favored the Democratic candidate. Voters ages 45 and older were divided
    (50% Republican, 49% Democrat).
  • Trump: The national exit poll found that more voters said their midterm vote
    was to oppose Trump (38%) than said it was to support him (26%); 33%
    said Trump was not a factor in their vote. The midterm vote also was
    highly correlated with views of Trump’s job performance: Among those who
    approved of the president (45% of all voters), 88% voted for the
    Republican. Among the larger share who disapproved (54%), an
    overwhelming percentage voted Democratic (90%).
  • Anti-White: Overall, 41% of voters said whites in the country today are favored over
    minorities; 19% said that minorities are favored over whites, while 33%
    said that no group is favored.  Among those who said whites are favored in the U.S., 87% voted for
    Democrats. By contrast, large majorities of those who said minorities
    are favored (85%) or that no group is favored (69%) voted for Republican
    candidates.
  • #MeToo: 72% of those who said sexual harassment it is a very serious problem supported Democratic
    candidates. Among those who said it was a somewhat serious problem,
    Republican candidates held a slim edge (50% vs. 48%). And while
    relatively few voters said sexual harassment is not too serious a
    problem (11%), this group voted overwhelmingly Republican (79% vs. 20%).

In a report on November 7, 2018, Pew Research found that “A preliminary analysis of the 2018 midterm elections finds considerable
continuity from 2014 and 2010 in the voting patterns of several key religious groups“:

  • Three-quarters (75%) of white voters who describe themselves as
    evangelical or born-again Christians (a group that includes Protestants,
    Catholics and members of other faiths) voted for Republican House
    candidates.
  • 7-in-10 no religions voted for the Democratic candidate in their congressional district.
  • 8-in-10 Jewish voters (79%) cast their ballots for Democrats.
  • This year, Catholic voters were evenly split between the parties: 50%
    favored the Democratic candidate for Congress in their district, while
    49% favored the GOP’s nominee. In the past two midterm elections (2014
    and 2010), however, Catholics had favored Republican candidates by margins
    of roughly 10%.
  • Among Protestants, 56% voted for Republican congressional candidates and
    42% backed Democrats.
  • Among those who identify with faiths other than
    Christianity and Judaism
    (including Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and many
    others), 73% voted for Democratic congressional candidates while 25%
    supported Republicans.
  • Church attendance: Voters who say they attend religious services at least once a week
    backed Republican candidates over Democrats in their congressional
    districts by an 18-point margin. Those who attend services less often
    tilted in favor of the Democratic Party, including two-thirds (68%) of those who say they never attend worship services.

Feckless: Samantha Bee says President Trump should be ashamed of behavior to hack Jim Acosta

From Hollywood Reporter: Sam Bee broke down the “mixed bag” of Tuesday’s midterm election on her 100th show Wednesday night, highlighting the Democrats’ re-taking of the House of Representatives and bemoaning the re-elections of Rep. Steve King and Rep. Duncan Hunter.

The Full Frontal host also addressed the spat that CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and President Trump had during a press conference on the midterms earlier in the day. During the fight, Trump told Acosta, “CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them.”

“No, we should be ashamed of you working for us,” Bee countered. “Oh my god! You are at work. This is behavior that would have gotten me fired from Tim Horton’s and they didn’t even fire me for turning their donuts into bongs.”

She later narrated the interior monologue of the press aide who tried to take the microphone away from Acosta, who held on. The aide later backed off and kneeled so as not to be in the way of cameras. “I hate this job so much, It’s horrible, and … plié,” Bee said.

At the top of Wednesday’s show, the Full Frontal host addressed the news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had resigned earlier that day at the request of President Trump, an expected shift after the midterms. “He wanted to leave to spend more time doing what he loves most — racism,” Bee joked.

Bee proceeded to tick off some of the positive outcomes of the election, including the fact that the Democrat-majority House will be in charge of the House Intelligence Committee and therefore be responsible for Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. She also said Rep. Maxine Waters, a favorite to chair the House Financial Services Committee, “can subpoena the f*ck out of Trump’s tax returns.”

More importantly, Bee, added, addressing the GOP, “You can kiss your wall goodbye. Democrats are not going to give you an inch.” She then played a clip of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praising a bipartisan approach to solving issues. “Guys?” she joked.

In other highlights Bee mentioned, the 2018 midterms ushered in a record number of women to serve in Congress and Florida passed Amendment 4, returning the right to vote to felons. “So I’m going to say something I rarely get to say: Good job Florida,” Bee joked.

Still: “I have to admit, I was a little disappointed in the size of the blue wave,” Bee said, noting that Democrats only gained 23 seats in the House. She also added in downsides to the night’s results that Rep. Steve King of Iowa and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, who have both been accused of racism, were re-elected.

Bee concluded, “Last night was a mixed bag, but overall we should take it as a win” given the gerrymandering and voter suppression that Bee said was hurting the Democrats.

Later in her program, Bee also praised the campaign of Democrat Georgia Gov. candidate Stacey Abrams, who has called for a runoff in her fight against Brian Kemp, and listed “Bullshit we won’t forget” that included dirty tactics and off-color statements form Republican candidates during the election season.

Scott Adams with a little election encouragement

Scott Adams – Why You Can’t Tell Good News From Bad

Stepping back from the ledge…

I came across this today on Youtube. It helped me see some surprising good sides to a frustrating election. For instance, the fact that both the Dems and the GOP got something has taken some wind out of the sails of the most radical elements: no rioting.

GOP maintains control of Senate; great news for the “conservative judicial train”

Last night the GOP likely extended (at the time I scheduled this blog post) its majority in the Senate.

Key republican wins included:

  • Mike Braun in Indiana
  • Kevin Cramer defeated Heidi Heitkamp (who voted against Kavanaugh) in North Dakota
  • Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee
  • Josh Hawley defeated Claire McCaskill in Missouri
  • Rick Scott in Florida

This win is very important to keep control of the appointment of judicial nominees since the Senate confirms federal judges and – most importantly – SCOTUS nominees.

The SCOTUS is leaning more conservative with the appointments of Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

Considering the health condition and age of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there is a very good chance that President Trump could have the chance to nominate another conservative to the SCOTUS.

Lindsey Graham tweeted the following last night:

  • “One of the reasons we are winning big in the Senate tonight is because of the way Democrats treated Brett Kavanaugh.”
  • The conservative judicial train will keep running. President Trump has a lot to be proud of … without him I don’t think we would have had the night that we had.” response on Fox News”

Good news last night, very good news indeed.

2018 Midterm Election results: GOP keeps Senate; Demons get control of House

House of Representatives

218 seats needed for control

Republicans: 196     Democrats: 222

Senate

51 seats needed for control

Republicans: 52      Democrats: 46

That means President Trump can’t be impeached.

Governors

Republicans: 26     Democrats: 23

I weep for America.

For a cheerier take on the election, see DCG’s “GOP maintains control of Senate; great news for the ‘conservative judicial train’“.
