What happened to Obama? He looked wasted & defeated at Milwaukee rally

Did you know that the latest  Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll has President Trump’s approval numbers among “African Americans” at 40%?

Blacks traditionally vote Demonrat, so low black voter turnout is really bad for Democrats. When Obama won Wisconsin in 2012, black voter turnout was at 74%, but that number plummeted to 55% in 2016, according to the liberal Center for American Progress. Clinton would have narrowly won Wisconsin if black turnout had remained at 2012 levels. In Milwaukee, low black voter turnout in 2016 was especially costly for Hillary Clinton. She narrowly lost Wisconsin, which was among a handful of states that helped determine the presidency. (US News and World Report)

On Friday, October 26, 2018, Barack Obama went to one of Milwaukee’s most impoverished black neighborhoods to campaign for Wisconsin Democrats and to encourage blacks to vote.

Good grief, what happened to him?

It’s not just the grey hair. He looks wasted; his skin is sallow. His eyes look frightened. Look at the bags under his eyes — they weren’t there a year ago. Is he strung out on drugs? Or is the rumored HIV/AIDS finally catching up with him?

Body language analysis of Obama says he’s desperate and defeated.

When he opens his mouth, he lies. Obama told a spectacularly ridiculous lie about the “migrant caravans”. Beginning at the 3:11 mark, he said:

“The latest thing, they’re convinced, they’re trying to convince everybody to be afraid of a bunch of impoverished, malnourished refugees a thousand miles away.”

What dope is Obama smoking? Do these brawny, military-age young males look “impoverished” and “malnourished” to you?

Obama has the look of a desperate man who’s scared stiff — of a military tribunal?

Is his name on one of the 55,677 sealed indictments as of September 30, 2018?

Surely Obama knows that President Trump is beefing up Gitmo (the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba) with more than $200 million in new construction this year and next, including $115 million for a new 848-troop barracks, and that recently Defense Secretary Jim Mattis named an Army colonel to be Gitmo’s chief war court judge.

Recall that on CNN on September 6, 2018, Ohio Governor John Kasich said “John McCain was put to death“ (5:03 mark in the video below).

‘Seinfeld’ actress hyperventilates Trump America is going Nazi, but ignores the Left’s 640 acts of violence & harassment

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 57, is best known for playing Elaine Benes in the “Seinfeld” TV sitcom.

Last weekend, Louis-Dreyfus starred in an apocalypic ad for the ‘Multiply Your Vote’ campaign, warning that the United States is heading toward a future like Nazi Germany unless President Trump’s power is restrained. She said:

“Donald Trump, you are the president of all citizens of this country, you should not inflame the hatred of some at the violent expense of others. We’ve seen Jews subjected to persecution, prejudice, and mass murder for thousands of years. We were all horrified by the horrific slaughter of 11 Jewish congregants at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. In memory of the 11 people who lost their lives at their place of worship we call on the President to unequivocally denounced fascism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism. On November 6th, vote for unity, vote for decency, vote.”

The video also features two Holocaust survivors. Marta Lightner said, “Last two years, since Trump is in charge, it’s getting by day, worse and worse and worse”; another Holocaust survivor Tova Rotlevy-Cohen ominously said “this administration opened a Pandora’s Box.”

The ad then to shows footage from the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville last year, where neo-Nazi marchers chanted: “Jews will not replace us!”

Are you still wondering about the oh-so convenient (cough, cough) timing of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting?

See “Pittsburgh synagogue shooting was preceded by an active shooter drill; shooting used to silence AltMedia” and “The curious case of Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert G. Bowers

Louis-Dreyfus followed the ad with a tweet on Sunday, accusing President Trump of “spreading fear, encouraging racism and inciting violence.” (Breitbart)

President Trump is a Nazi who’s “spreading fear, encouraging racism and inciting violence”?

Once again, the Left are engaging in psychological projection. As John Nolte of Breitbart points out, it’s the Left who have perpetrated acts of media-approved violence and harassment against Trump and his supporters, numbering 640 in all (I updated Nolte’s list with one on October 30, 2018).

Unhinged: Stressed out demorats are eating their feelings and drinking heavily to get through mid-terms

From NBC: The midterm elections are turning out to be nearly as stressful as the 2016 presidential election — especially for Democrats.

According to a poll conducted by YouGov and commissioned by the fitness site Daily Burn, Democrats are 50 percent more likely than Republicans to say they’re “eating their feelings” as a result of the current political climate. They’re also drinking more (a 2-to-1 ratio over their GOP counterparts).

The ostensibly good news is that these stressed out Democrats are also working out more, by as much as 40 percent; but even exercise can be overdone.

“I’m seeing some people so stressed at the moment they’re doing two, even three soul cycle classes at day,” Dr. Navya Mysore, a primary care doctor, tells NBC News BETTER. “Exercise is good for you, but too much is not. You [risk] dehydration and your body needs time to rest and rejuvenate.”

What appears to be happening among many concerned voters, is that they’re resorting excessively to the habits that help us de-stress, whether that’s eating, drinking or exercising.

“Depending on how you’re used to dealing with stress, people tend to gravitate toward that habit more,” says Dr. Mysore. “If you had a hard day, you’ll have a glass of wine, so maybe you’re doing that more. Same for people who are stress eaters — they’ll eat more. If you’re more prone to sweat it out when stressed, then you’ll do that more.”

Binging almost always leaves us feeling crummy, even if what we’re binging on is as benign as Netflix (which Daily Burn’s poll found both Democrats and Republicans are doing plenty of in reaction to the fraught political climate).

How do we stop the stress-induced madness? We turned to health experts for practical tips on managing binge-y behavior when stressed. Read the whole story here for the not-so-surprising ways to de-stress.


Even though I blog about politics every day, I have lots of other interests and activities to keep me busy and happy. Plus I don’t have TDS…

Shocker, not: Glamour “Women of the Year” are rabid anti-2A, TDS-infected progressives

The media continue their all-out attempt to push progressive narratives ahead of the mid-terms. Case in point: Glamour magazine has published their annual “Women of Year” issue and it includes several TDS-infected libtards.

From their article:

“In the 28 years that we’ve celebrated Women of the Year—both in our pages and at our annual summit and awards ceremony—the stories of our honorees often start with the same idea: a woman that refuses to wait for someone else to make things better. Alone, or with an army behind her, she decides to act.”

Honorees include:

Kamala Harris: The California senator who loves abortion and illegal aliens once joked about killing President Trump.

Chrissy Teigen: The anti-everything Trump model has a garbage mouth and calls for civility yet routinely trashes people on Twitter.

The Women Activists of March for Our Lives: These teenagers apparently “demanded change” and “won’t take no for an answer.”

What change exactly did they achieve?

Did they see that the Broward Coward sheriffs were held responsible for their inactions? Did they hold Sheriff Scott Israel responsible for his ineffective leadership? Did they see that the FBI was responsible for their inaction on the tips about the Parkland shooter?

Sure, some new gun laws were passed in Florida. Exactly how many school shootings have these new gun laws prevented?

Rather all these activists did was trash the NRA, Dana Loesch and responsible gun owners. As a result of their activism, NRA membership dramatically increased.

What a bunch of liberal garbage Glamour magazine is promoting.

10 reasons NOT to vote next Tuesday

From John Philip Sousa IV’s essay on Stars & Stripes Forever:

Given that just a 2 or 3 percentage point drop in turnout among Republicans mean Democrats take control of Congress next year, I thought I’d list a few reasons why Republicans might want to consider skipping this election. Here goes …

1. If you like higher taxes, and you hate the explosive growth, new jobs, and higher incomes, that have lifted every American family — especially the poor — then don’t vote.

2. If you enjoy the polarization, blame shifting, and finger pointing in Congress, don’t vote. It seems like the moment the results of the last election were announced Democrats have been doing everything they can to create chaos and stop any progress at all. Imagine the congressional investigations they’ll launch if they take control of Congress. With Democrats in charge, expect even more resist, disruption, and delay.

3. If you want more violence in the streets, stay home. Groups like ANTIFA attack regular Americans with Democrat encouragement. Black Lives Matter regularly advocates for violence against police. Put Democrats in control and voters will send a clear message to these groups that their approach works and they should step it up in time for the 2020 Presidential elections.

4. If you want to replace rule of law with rule by the mob, don’t go to the polls. We all watched while Democrats found now Justice Kavanaugh guilty by allegation without the slightest shred of proof. They sought not to prevent confirmation by appealing to reason or argument. They worked to destroy a man’s reputation, career, and life — along with his wife, 2 daughters, and distraught mother — without presenting even a hint of justification.

5. If you want to stop the confirmation of conservative judges and appointees, forget about voting. Democrats have successfully stopped or delayed more presidential appointments than any congress in the last hundred or so years. Put them in charge of Congress and the trickle of confirmations will grind to a total stop.

6. If you think open borders for anyone who cares to enter is a good idea, then do nothing on November 6th. If you hate the idea of a wall, border security, or immigration enforcement; then Democrat control is for you. Don’t vote, let Democrats win, and we’ll see millions of new migrants enter America scot free. Not only that, but we’ll also see many billions more in spending on things like welfare, health care, and education for immigrants who flock here.

7. If you want more sanctuary towns, cities, and states that protect criminal illegal immigrants, then ignore election day. Crimes committed by illegal immigrants include murder, assault, rape, robbery and many more. But in sanctuary states and municipalities, police are banned from cooperating with federal authorities responsible for prosecuting and deporting illegal immigrants who commit crimes. If you want more places where violent criminal immigrants are protected, vote Democrat in November!

8. If your heart’s desire is more government-controlled everything, then don’t vote. If you agree Obamacare doesn’t go far enough and that only a total takeover of healthcare by government is acceptable, then stay home on November 6th. Health care is only the beginning. Democrats now openly advocate socialism as a better approach than allowing free people, freely choosing, to decide our economic well-being.

9. If you’re ready to dispense with the Constitution and the freedoms it protects, forget about voting. If you agree with the left’s view that things like respect for personal freedom, individual dignity, and limited government are old-fashioned, then don’t vote. The Kavanaugh hearings were only a single shot in their assault on justice, rule of law, and freedom. They’ve been clear they also want to repeal the 2nd Amendment — by legislation or court decree. And it won’t stop there. With them in charge, our constitution and guaranteed rights will be little more than a memory.

10. If you like the idea of breaking the budget and running up even bigger deficits, don’t vote. Obama ran up our deficit by trillions of dollars — more than all the other presidents in America’s 200 year history COMBINED. More Democrats in Congress will make sure Trump and Republicans don’t return to the old-school idea of discipline and restraint in spending, that they can’t cut the size of government, make it more responsive, or bring new efficiencies.

These are just a few of the reasons you may want to stay home and let Democrats run rampant over the election this November.

Or, you can go to the polls and stop Democrat Socialist policies that will hurt our future, damage our economy, and destroy our freedom.

In this highly polarized, divided environment, every single vote counts, and with this election everything is on the line.

November 6th, it’s up to you.

White media mogul Steven Clifford: Straight white males should be banned from voting

Steven Clifford, 75, is a former president and CEO (1987-1992) of the Seattle-based radio-TV media conglomerate King Broadcasting Company; a former chairman (1992-2000) of Los Angeles-based National Mobile Television; and  author of the book CEO Pay Machine: How it Trashes America and How to Stop it.

He is currently secretary and trustee of Seattle Biomedical Research Institute, and writes trite little columns that he thinks to be amusing for Huffington Post.

On October 30, 2018, after speaking at a forum on destroying market fundamenalism organized by the Center for Study of Responsive Law founded by Ralph Nader in 1968, Clifford told PJ Media that the right to vote should be taken away from heterosexual white males as a way to “save” democracy because a majority of them had voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

About the upcoming midterm elections, Clifford was asked what message or advice he would give the Demonrat Party. Clifford said:

“I’m not a campaign consultant and I think they [Democrats] have to get off the fact that Donald Trump is Donald Trump. Every voter knows that Donald Trump is Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton spent $450 million every day saying that Donald Trump is Donald Trump. I think they’ve got to tell the voters why they’re going to be better off with a Democratic House or a Democratic Senate rather than just say Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Donald Trump every day… ‘Anti’ doesn’t get people out to vote enough. It’s got to help me….

I think it’s the only hope for democracy in America and I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise and I think that will save our democracy.”

In a Sept. 23, 2016 essay for the Huffington Post, Clifford took issue with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan of “One America, One God, One Flag”. Clifford archly and with malice associated the slogan with Nazism. He wrote:

I think this is a loose translation of “Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuehrer” but my German is not very good.

So Clifford advocates banning straight white males from voting, which is racist, sexist and heterophobic, but he calls Trump a Nazi. Oh, the irony.

Then Clifford wrote:

But this One God thing has me worried. How do I know that Trump has chosen the right God for us to worship? I fear he could select the God of my Catholic childhood, a cantankerous old white man who, according to the local clergy, was obsessed with 13 year-olds masturbating. “There goes Clifford again. Hey Mary give him another two centuries in purgatory. Maybe I should grow some hair on his hands.”

We know what Trump thinks of Mexicans. What if the pearly gates are not guarded not St. Peter but by Quetzalcoatl, and Huitzilopochtli is the big Kahuna. We could be in big trouble….

Even with demanding human sacrifice, Huitzilopochtli doesn’t look so bad. Baal, Marduk or Thor would be a big improvement.

Since Steven Clifford, by his own description is an “old white man,” and since I very much doubt he is advocating banning himself from voting, I can only conclude that Steven Clifford is a homosexual.

There is no Wikipedia entry on Steven Clifford, but here are  his Facebook and Twitter. Bloomberg lists his business address, phone and fax as:

307 Westlake Avenue North
Seattle, Washington 98109
Phone: 206-256-7200
Fax: 206-256-7229

So if you are a heterosexual white male and you are thinking of not voting next Tuesday, you may lose your right to vote in the future.

Florida demorat governor candidate Gillum’s campaign staff member: “Florida is a f**ked up cracker a** state”

Wow, just wow.

Project Veritas is at it again: Exposing the demorats dirty tricks and willingness to say and do anything to get elected.

Last night James O’Keefe and his team released an undercover video of demorat Florida governor candidate Andrew Gillum (running against republican candidate Ron DeSantis) in which his campaign staff members (specifically, Omar Smith) said the following:

  • You whip ‘em up, the poor, into a frenzy. You have to whip them up into a frenzy in order for them to vote.”
  • “Do the voters know that? That’s not for them to know.
  • “Gillum is a progressive. He’s part of the crazy, crazy, crazies.
  • “You have to appeal to white guilt.”
  • On gun control: “I don’t think he can say it [be]cause he’s trying to get the moderates” … “three day waiting period for everybody,” “small steps” to ban assault rifles.
  • “Alright? This is a f**ked up ass state.”
  • “It’s a cracker state.”
  • In order to get this agenda through, you’re going to need it by force. Is that, am I reading you correctly? Yes.”

#WalkAway Florida, just #WalkAway.

‘Babe’ actor James Cromwell threatens ‘blood in the streets’ if GOP wins election

Puffed with self-importance, the usual “celebrity” suspects are oozing out of the sewer, making empty threats at Americans about dire consequences if they exercise their free will and actually vote Republican next Tuesday.

This morning, DCG informed us that Barbra Streisand declared she may move to Canada if GOP wins the House, as if that’s a bad thing. LOL

Now, another Hollyweirdo with delusions of grandeur — James Crowell, 78, the actor best known for being upstaged by a pig in the 1995 movie Babe — is threatening bloody violence if Americans don’t vote Democrat.

Nate Nickolai reports for Variety that Cromwell used the occasion of the fourth annual Carney Awards Sunday (Oct. 28) night in Santa Monica, CA, where he was honored for his work as a character actor, to rant about President Trump. He told Variety:

“This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism. If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.

Cromwell continued his rant in his acceptance speech:

“We’re living in very curious times, and something is coming up which is desperately important to this country and to this planet, and that is an election, in which hopefully in some measure we are going to take back our democracy. We will have a government that represents us and not the donor class. We will cut through the corruption, [and] we won’t have to do what comes next, which is either a non-violent revolution or a violent one, because this has got to end.”

Readers’ comments on Variety are almost uniformly critical of Cromwell. Below is a sample. Each comment displays more intelligence and knowledge than Cromwell:

“This is what happens when these broccolis use their own words.”

“Enough … just stop trying to incite violence … what is wrong with you ??”

“James Cromwell called for people to be murdered if the Democrat Socialists lose next week. Where is the outrage?”

“Odd how when conservatives lose an election they never call for such a thing, they call for working harder, winning elections, and otherwise using the liberties granted under the law. Fascism isn’t what he is opposing here – fascism is what he’s calling for!”

“Its comments like Mr Cromwell made that incite violence. Remember the democrat that shot up a baseball field nearly killing many…. If there is ‘blood in the streets’, Mr. Cromwell should be held accountable for inciting this.”

“NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR WHAT A STUPID 2ND RATE ACTOR HAS TO SAY.”

“Cromwell is just another one of these idiotic actors who think that whatever they say has some consequence. The only blood on the street will be the poor dems who, I imagine, will slit their own wrists when they don’t get their way.”

“So, what would be closer to true fascism and totalitarianism—accepting the results of a lawful election that reflects the will of those who voted in it, or carrying out violent ‘revolution’ to overturn those results?”

“It is funny how the people decrying fascism always seem to be the people leading it. The cognitive dissonance of people like Cromwell is striking.”

“I was told on Twitter that I couldn’t criticize him because he is Jewish and it’s only acceptable to hate whites on Twitter. I don’t hate the man. I just think he should stick with acting. And I still don’t know what the donor class is that he refers to.”

“Trump is a fascist? Let’s see: Who’s been arrested for speaking against Trump? Oh, no one. Which newspaper has been taken over by the government to be an official propaganda paper? Oh. None. Which TV program has the administration forced off the air; which network has had to close its doors? None. On the other hand, who have been acting like brownshirts out in the streets, screaming, yelling, chanting, blocking traffic, confronting those with whom they disagree physically? It’s the people Cromwell apparently likes. No, Trump’s not the fascist. Check out Hillary Clinton, who says you can’t be civil with the other party; check out Maxine Waters, who urges Democrats to get in people’s faces. THEY, not Trump, are the fascists.”

Another empty promise? Barbra Streisand “thinking” about moving to Canada if GOP wins the House

Bye-bye Babs?

Well, that’s an incentive to vote GOP!

And how come these Hollyweird-types never threaten to move south of the border?

From Fox News: Barbra Streisand is once again thinking about leaving the United States for political reasons.

In a Tuesday interview with the New York Times, the 76-year-old star admitted that she’s considering moving to Canada if the Democrats don’t win the House in the midterms next week.

“I want to sleep nights, if we take the House I’ll be able to sleep a little bit better,” Streisand told the outlet, adding that if they don’t take control she’s been “thinking about” a potential move.

“I’ve been thinking about, do I want to move to Canada? I don’t know. I’m just so saddened by this thing happening to our country.

“It’s making me fat,” she continued. “I hear what he said now, and I have to go eat pancakes now, and pancakes are very fattening. We make them with healthy flour, though — almond flour, coconut flour.”

This isn’t the first time Streisand has said she’s considering leaving the United States. Before the 2016 election, the singer-actress echoed the same sentiment.

“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” she said according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Last month, Streisand released her first album — “Walls” — since 2005, which contains a track that directly speaks to President Donald Trump and voices her distaste for what his administration is doing to America and the world at large. “I just went ballistic,” she told The Associated Press at the time.

The track titled “Don’t Lie to Me” contains lyrics aimed at Trump such as: “How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?/All that we built has come undone/How do you sleep when the world is burning?/Everyone answers to someone.”

I just can’t stand what’s going on,” the Oscar, Grammy and Emmy winner continued.  “His assault on our democracy, our institutions, our founders — I think we’re in a fight. … We’re in a war for the soul of America.

Ben & Jerry’s unveils “Pecan Resist” ahead of mid-term elections

I have never bought Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. And I never will.

From USA Today: Ben & Jerry’s is launching a new flavor, Pecan Resist, which the company made to promote activism in the U.S.

The Limited Batch flavor – chocolate ice cream with white and dark fudge chunks, pecans, walnuts and fudge-covered almonds – is part of the company’s campaign to “lick injustice and champion those fighting to create a more just and equitable nation for us all,” it said Tuesday.

Ben & Jerry’s is donating $25,000 to each of four organizations working on behalf of people of color, Native Americans’ environmental justice and women – Color Of Change, Honor the Earth, Women’s March and Neta.

“The company cannot be silent in the face of President Trump’s policies that attack and attempt to roll back decades of progress on racial and gender equity, climate change, LGBTQ rights and refugee and immigrant rights – all issues that have been at the core of the company’s social mission for 40 years,” Ben & Jerry’s said in a statement.

The White House could not immediately be reached for comment.

The ice-cream maker made the announcement in the National Press Club’s First Amendment Room in Washington, D.C.

Ben & Jerry’s, which Unilever acquired in 2000, has used its sweet treats to promote its social justice agenda before. For example, Chubby Hubby became Hubby Hubby in 2009 to celebrate same sex marriage in Vermont, Chocolate Fudge Brownie was temporarily renamed Food Fight Fudge Brownie to support GMO labeling and EmpowerMint in 2016 was used to promote voting rights, the company said.

A half-cup serving of Pecan Resist contains 300 calories, 20 grams of fat and 25 grams of sugar, according to the flavor’s nutrition label.

A quick note for flavor-watchers: Pecan Resist was previously called New York Super Fudge Chunk. The flavor is sold only at participating Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops and through the company’s website.

Bay Area artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez designed the Pecan Resist pint. The carton reads, “Welcome to the resistance. Together, Pecan Resist!…We celebrate the diversity of our glorious nation & raise our spoons in solidarity for all Americans. Take a stand & join those on the front lines.”

A URL on the package directs people to information about the four organizations to which Ben & Jerry’s donated money.

Dipayan Biswas, a University of South Florida professor of marketing, said the new flavor will foster loyalty from some customers and prompt others to boycott Ben & Jerry’s – like what happened to Chick-fil-A in 2012 after CEO Dan Cathy spoke out against gay marriage (yeah, that boycott really did in Chick-fil-A, didn’t it? /sarc).

“Paradoxically, it makes good business sense. Brands, like politicians, often do well when they’re more polarizing,” he said. “A lot of people hate them for that. That’s fine. They get loyalty from other segments.”

But Biswas said he doesn’t know if the ice cream flavor will effect the change the company wants it to. “Research shows words have subliminal impact,” he said. “When you see the brand name, in this case, it can subtly remind people of certain things. I’m not sure it will (inspire) action.”
