Shocker: Clint Eastwood ditches Trump for Bloomberg

Jordan Moreau reports for Variety, Feb. 22, 2020:

Longtime Republican Clint Eastwood is pulling support from Donald Trump in the 2020 election. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the actor-director signaled that he thinks a different candidate would be the better choice.

“The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” he said.

After endorsing Mitt Romney and famously delivering a speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention to an empty chair that represented Barack Obama, Eastwood never officially backed Trump. In a 2016 interview, he expressed displeasure with Trump and Hillary Clinton, saying there’s “much funny business on both sides of the aisle.”

He praised Trump at the time because he was “onto something” and “secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.”

“We’re really in a p—y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist,” he said.

Now, he’s changed his tune a bit on Trump.

While he approves of “certain things” the president has done, he wishes that he would act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names. I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level,” he said.

Clint Eastwood will be 90 years old this May 31.

As president, ‘anti-war’ Bernie Sanders would consider a preemptive strike against Iran/N. Korea

Last January, President Trump ordered the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, described by an ex-CIA operative as “the single most powerful operative [terrorist] in the Middle East today,” on the grounds that Soleimani posed an “imminent” threat to America’s national security.

Reacting to the Soleimani assassination, some in the blogosphere are convinced that Trump had caved in to Israel’s wishes, and that a U.S. invasion of Iran was next, which could ignite nothing less than a third world war.

Erstwhile pro-Trumpists even declared the Soleimani assassination to be a deal breaker that convinced them to switch their support to socialist Bernie Sanders because he (Sanders) could be “a real American president” who is not “an Israeli stooge” and instigate a U.S. war against Iran — never mind the fact that Sanders is Jewish and had volunteered and lived in an Israeli kibbutz. (See “Shocking: Jim Fetzer turns against Trump in favor of Bernie Sanders because of Soleimani assassination”)

According to World Socialist Web Site, however, although Sanders presents himself as an opponent of war, responding to a survey from the New York Times, his campaign said as president, Bernie Sanders would be prepared to launch a “preemptive strike” against Iran and North Korea. Below are excerpts from the World Socialist Web Site article:

Bernie Sanders has won the popular vote in both the New Hampshire and Iowa presidential primary contests in considerable part by presenting himself as an opponent of war. Following the criminal assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani last month, Sanders was the most vocal of the Democratic presidential aspirants in criticizing Trump’s action. His poll numbers have risen in tandem with his stepped-up anti-war rhetoric.

He has repeatedly stressed his vote against the 2003 invasion of Iraq, reminding voters in the Iowa presidential debate last month, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, when speaking to the foremost newspaper of the American ruling class, the New York Times, the Sanders campaign adopts a very different tone than that employed by the candidate when addressing the public in campaign stump speeches or TV interviews.

The answers provided by Sanders’ campaign to a foreign policy survey of the Democratic presidential candidates published this month by the Times provide a very different picture of the attitude of the self-styled “democratic socialist” to American imperialism and war. In the course of the survey, the Sanders campaign is at pains to reassure the military/intelligence establishment and the financial elite of the senator’s loyalty to US imperialism and his readiness to deploy its military machine.

Perhaps most significant and chilling is the response to the third question in the Times’ survey.

Question: Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?

Answer: Yes.

A Sanders White House, according to his campaign, would be open to launching a military strike against Iran or nuclear-armed North Korea to prevent (not respond to) not even a threatened missile or nuclear strike against the United States, but a mere weapons test. This is a breathtakingly reckless position no less incendiary than those advanced by the Trump administration….

Moreover…the so-called progressive, anti-war candidate fully subscribes to the doctrine of “preemptive war” declared to be official US policy in 2002 by the administration of George W. Bush. An illegal assertion of aggressive war as an instrument of foreign policy, this doctrine violates the principles laid down at the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi officials after World War II, the United Nations charter and other international laws and conventions on war. Sanders’ embrace of the doctrine, following in the footsteps of the Obama administration, shows that his opposition to the Iraq war was purely a question of tactics, not a principled opposition to imperialist war.

The above question is preceded by another that evokes a response fully in line with the war policies of the Obama administration, the first two-term administration in US history to preside over uninterrupted war.

Question: Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?

Answer: Yes.

Among the criminal wars carried out by the United States in the name of defending “human rights” are the war in Bosnia and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s, the 2011 air war against Libya that ended with the lynching of deposed ruler Muammar Gaddafi, and the civil war in Syria that was fomented by Washington and conducted by its Al Qaeda-linked proxy militias.

The fraudulent humanitarian pretexts for US aggression were no more legitimate than the lie of “weapons of mass destruction” used in the neo-colonial invasion of Iraq. The result of these war crimes has been the destruction of entire societies, the death of millions and dislocation of tens of millions more, along with the transformation of the Middle East into a cauldron of great power intervention and intrigue that threatens to erupt into a new world war.

Sanders fully subscribes to this doctrine of “humanitarian war” that has been particularly associated with Democratic administrations.

In response to a question from the Times on the assassination of Suleimani, the Sanders campaign calls Trump’s action illegal, but refuses to take a principled stand against targeted assassinations in general and associates itself with the attacks on Suleimani as a terrorist….

Sanders thus supports the continued presence of tens of thousands of US troops on the Korean peninsula, just as he supports the deployment of US forces more generally to assert the global interests of the American ruling class.

On Israel, Sanders calls for a continuation of the current level of US military and civilian aid and opposes the immediate return of the US embassy from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv….

Sanders…attacking Trump from…for failing to aggressively prosecute the conflict with Russia and China….

In a recent interview Ro Khanna, a Democratic congressman and national co-chair of the Sanders campaign, assured Atlantic writer Uri Friedman that Sanders would continue provocative “freedom of the seas” navigation operations in the Persian Gulf and the South China Sea, while committing a Sanders administration to “maintain some [troop] presence” on the multitude of bases dotting “allied” countries from Japan to Germany.

Millions of workers, students and young people…attracted to Sanders because they have come to despise and oppose the vast social inequality, brutality and militarism of American society…will soon learn through bitter experience that Sanders’s opposition to the “billionaire class” is no more real than his supposed opposition to war. His foreign policy is imperialist through and through, in line with the aggressive and militaristic policy of the Democratic Party and the Obama administration….

Sanders is no more an apostle of peace than he is a representative of the working class….

Unhinged demorats: Woman punches man at his birthday party after mistaking his hat as a MAGA hat

Daniel Sprague Facebook Photo

From NY Post: A retired NYPD detective says a woman punched him in the face in Nashville over the weekend because his hat looked like a MAGA cap.

Staten Island resident Daniel Sprague told the Post he was celebrating his 50th birthday with his wife and friends at The Stage on Broadway on Friday when he was assaulted by a woman he didn’t know. “I was outside with my friends when some grabbed me from behind, spun me around and punched me in the face,” said Sprague, who retired from the NYPD in 2009.“At first I thought it was a friend until I got hit. I couldn’t believe someone could get that upset.”

In reality, his cap was emblazoned with the words “Make Fifty Great Again” — while his shirt was decorated with an American flag that read “Making America Great Since 1970.”

The bar’s bouncers booted them both from the property before he had a chance to call cops, but he filed a report the following day, he said.

“All night people were giving me thumbs up, smiles or some showing rage, until they walked up close and saw what hat said,” he recalled. “Then they would wish me a happy birthday.”

He was baffled by the vitriol and said he showed respect for politicians he didn’t like. “I love Trump, but I wouldn’t hit someone who had a Bernie hat on,” said Sprague, who spent more than two decades on the NYPD and retired as a member of the elite Emergency Service Unit. “Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I wasn’t an Obama fan but if he walked into a place where I was, I would show him and the office respect.”

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department confirmed that they took a report on the incident. “Suspect grabbed his hat from his head and punched him in the face,” according to the report. “He stated that when the suspect hit him in the face, he did not hit her back.”

Sprague recounted the incident on Facebook and said that he was waiting to hear back from detectives.

He also instructed readers not to react to negative comments on the post, because it might be one of his friends “breaking my chops because we have a great relationship and sense of humor.

“If it happens to be a fool or misguided snow flake’s comment, by arguing with them it will only encourage them to believe they know what they are talking about,” he wrote.

How low will Democrats go?

It should be common knowledge by now that the Democrats have control of California,  People should understand that they do not plan on losing that control.  So they spend most of their time creating an environment that secures their needs while ignoring the needs of Californians.

In the past I have mentioned 2 ways the Democrats have “tweaked” election related laws/rules in California.  One was a change in Ballot harvesting which allowed   persons other than family members to collect and submit ballots.  The second changed how they verified votes that came in the mail after the polls have closed.

These changes only made it easier for people to commit voter fraud.   They had to have known this.  The only logical explanation is they did this because they were planning to exploit the new weaknesses they had just created, by making those two changes. Because of these changes, no election result  in California  should trusted.

Fast forward to today. While reading my mail I made a discovery.   It seems that the democrats have another trick up their sleeve.  This one being so shady that it cannot possibly be legal.

California Presidential Primary election is on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.  In the image is page 7 from the Official Voter Information Guide.  (The Guide is  what the state of California mails out to Californians).  At the top of the page  you will see in bold letters “How to vote for President”.  Below that it reads “Registered to vote as No Party Preference?”.   The next paragraph is problem.

“As a voter registered with No Party Preference, if you want to vote for U.S. President, you must request a primary ballot with presidential candidates from one of the following parties:”

  • American Independent Party
  • Democratic Party
  • Libertarian Party

 

CAELEC

Where it says “you must” is the problem.  Must can be defined as to be obliged to, have to, need to, required to, etc. It’s pretty obvious that this statement is telling people  registered with no party preference that they can only vote for one of those 3 choices.  This is a complete lie.  This state government lying to voters.   They are intentionally misleading voters.  It’s the same at the Secretary of States office.  Here is a link to view their version(same as this).  Click here

This is the same document that the media and various websites are promoting in California.  This is a huge problem.

California has almost 5,700,000 voters registered as No Party Preference.  That’s because of the states push to get people to register to vote.  Now we see why.  The get them signed up then lie to them by telling them they have only three choices.  Notice that Trump isn’t included in those choices.  Notice the Republican party is not one of those three choices.

voter

The truth is that those are not their only choices.  They can vote for Trump.  They just need to register as a republican to vote for him in the primaries.  That’s just for the primaries.    For the general election, they can stay registered as no party preference.  So you see, telling people that if they want to vote for president, “they must” pick one of the three is a complete lie.

At the bottom of the page you will see where they clean it up by saying that you have to register with one of the other parties if you want to vote for their candidate.  They conveniently left out the deadline date which is,  February 18, 2020.

I’ve also provided a page from a county voter guide.  You will notice that they changed the word “must” to “can”.  Plus they included the deadline.

stancountyinfo guide

It does not matter what it says about registering with another party at the lower part of the page.  The top where it says “must” has the biggest impact on people.  They intentionally lied.  The local media is promoting that lie. The damage is done.

I’ve always said the impeachment was a distraction and people should pay attention to what the democrats are doing in the background.  This is a good example.  The democrats are being shady.  That’s all the democrats do.

No election should be trusted in the hands of a democrat.  Nothing should be trusted in the hands of a democrat.  Anybody that lives in a state controlled by democrats should check their voter info guides.  Keep a close eye on the democrats in general.

Respectfully

Deplorable Patriot

Man drove van into Florida GOP voter-registration tent with 6 volunteers inside

The violent Left strikes again.

Yesterday, in Jacksonville, Florida, a man intentionally drove a van into a tent where six Republican volunteers were registering voters.

Miraculously, no one was hurt.

Duval County GOP tweeted:

Today in Jacksonville, Florida six Trump Campaign volunteers were intentionally targeted while registering voters.

At approximately 2:45 p.m. a multi-colored brown and gold van driven by what is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, accelerated into a crowd of volunteers at the Kernan Village shopping center located at 11900 Atlantic Boulevard.

Thankfully, Republican volunteers narrowly avoided being struck by the accelerating van. The driver sped away after making an obscene gesture toward the crowd.

“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” said Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved, and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights.”

The Republican Party of Duval County plans to redouble its efforts to register voters and will continue it’s fight with renewed intensity to re-elect President Donald Trump.

This is confirmed by The Florida Times-Union:

Jacksonville police say a driver intentionally crashed a van through a tent where Duval County GOP volunteers were registering voters Saturday afternoon.

Nobody was injured in the 3:45 p.m. incident at the Walmart Supercenter, 11900 Atlantic Boulevard, near Kernan Boulevard in the Sandalwood neighborhood, Lt. Larry Gayle of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told reporters at the scene.

Several Duval County GOP volunteers were working at the registration tent when a white man in his early 20s driving an older — possibly 1980s — brown van pulled up toward the tent.

He then drove through the tent, endangering the lives of the workers and damaging the tent and tables, Gayle said.

The driver then stopped, got out of the van and took a video of the scene before he “flipped off” the victims and fled, Gayle said.

President Donald Trump tweeted about the incident Saturday night: “Law Enforcement has been notified. Be careful tough guys who you play with!”

Because the investigation was in the early stage, police didn’t know the motive. However, detectives with the Sheriff’s Office Intelligence Unit were en route to the scene, Gaye said.

“We are investigating this as a aggravated assault,” Gayle said. “Several people were in the area and could have been seriously hurt.”

Gayle also said police are looking into the incident “as in reference to interruption of the political process.”

Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward of up to $3,000, contact Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-TIPS.

Media misleading headline, again: “Hundreds of Migrants Sent Back to El Salvador by the U.S. Were Killed or Abused”

This story was published with the above headline by People magazine on February 6.

The subheadline: “The Human Rights Watch has identified 138 Salvadorans who were killed and another 70 who face abuse after deportation.”

Gee, wouldn’t one automatically interpret – due to the lack of dates – that this happened under President Trump’s watch? Of course they would. That is the sole reason for the framing of this headline.

Yet the first couple paragraphs start out as such:

Over the last seven years hundreds of Salvadoran migrants and asylum seekers have been killed or abused after they were deported from the United States, according to a report this week by Human Rights Watch.

The organization identified 138 deported Salvadorans who were killed between 2013 and 2019 and another 70 cases in this time period where “deportees were subjected to sexual violence, torture, and other harm, usually at the hands of gangs, or who went missing following their return.”

Apparently the US is to blame for the horrible conditions in El Salvador:

U.S. authorities knew or should have known they were going to return these people to harm,” Alison Leal Parker, a managing director of the Human Rights Watch’s U.S. program, told The Washington Post. “Therefore they should not have done it.

You know what’s coming next: #OrangeManBad:

Trump campaigned on reducing both legal and illegal immigration.

“As asylum and immigration policies tighten in the United States and dire security problems continue in El Salvador, the US is repeatedly violating its obligations to protect Salvadorans from return to serious risk of harm,” the Human Rights Watch report states.”

Finally, we get to the actual dates of these atrocities occurring El Salvador:

Between 2014 and 2018, the U.S. granted asylum to 18.2 percents of its Salvadoran applicants — the lowest rate in the region. The U.S. also deported a total of 111,000 Salvadorans in that same time period.

And here’s the kicker at the very end of the article (as if People magazine readers even make it that far):

“El Salvador has one of the highest rates of homicide and sexual violence in the world.”

There’s a reason why the media deserves the title of #FakeNews.

This is the Party that wants to rule America: AP can’t declare a winner of Iowa’s Democratic primary

After days of confusion about last Monday’s Iowa Democratic caucuses (we are told the delay was caused by technology problems with the mobile phone app used by the Iowa Democratic Party to collect results from caucus sites), the Associated Press said it is unable to declare a winner.

Here are the reasons:

  1. According to the Iowa Democratic Party’s release of new results late last night Pete Buttigieg leads Bernie Sanders by only 0.09% — the equivalent of 1.5 delegates. AP’s senior vice president and executive editor Sally Buzbee said: “The Associated Press calls a race when there is a clear indication of a winner. Because of a tight margin between former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders and the irregularities in this year’s caucus process, it is not possible to determine a winner at this point.”
  2. There is evidence the Iowa Democratic Party has not accurately tabulated some of its results, including those released late Thursday that the party reported as complete. The AP’s tabulation of the party’s results are at 99% of precincts reporting, with data missing from one of 1,765 precincts, among other issues.
  3. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has asked the Iowa Democratic Party to conduct a recanvass, i.e., to check the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly. But the Iowa Democratic Party may not comply with Perez’s request, issuing a statement saying it would conduct a recanvass only if one of the candidates requested it.

To quote President Trump’s tweet:
