Ah, the confusion of Stink Progress.

So by suggesting that Comey was recorded in those conversations forced this known liar to tell the truth? And Stink progress is actually complaining about this?

I’m beginning to believe actual cognitive thought is beyond these animals.

And how much of this was government money?

Do you understand the problem yet?

Well, at least they won’t admit it to anybody if they have.

From a contact of mine who lives in GA6:

“….his ENTIRE campaign was built on the “lie” that Ossoff was a anti-Washington, anti-waste “outsider” who would save tax dollars and reform Washington – and when he was advertising to the conservative white radio stations in town, he NEVER mentioned he was even a democrat, had worked for a democrat Congressman, or got his original money selling videos for ISIS-Arabic TV! On the black/jive/rap/jazz stations, he promoted racism and the democrat agenda non-stop….”

They’ve been trying to position this as a referendum on Trump. Particularly the national media has been doing this. 

Of course they’re tuned changed once Ossoff got his backside handed to him.

But…Remember, I’ve been saying this all along… that Donald Trump did not win because he’s Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton lost because she’s Hillary Clinton…Although Donald Trump winning while being probably the least qualified candidate in GOP history should have given them a clue.

And if you look closely at the kind of advertising he did in the district as listed above, you might actually come to the conclusion the they already know what their problem is… But can’t deal with it very effectively for fear of alienating their Looney Tune Base.

What cost the ‘rats their chance to win GA-6, from Daily Beast:

In the end, the high-profile special election in Georgia’s 6th District was a referendum on Nancy Pelosi, not Donald Trump.

The numbers bear this out. According to The Washington Post’s James Hohman, “Pelosi was a huge drag on Jon Ossoff. Internal GOP polling showed she had 98 percent name ID, was 35 points underwater.”

There’s also this: Ossoff backed off Trump (for fear of offending Republicans he would presumably need), while Republicans were 100 percent committed to linking Ossoff to Pelosi.

From AZ Quotes:

Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program

Pass the bill to find out what’s in it

Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs.

San Fran Nan has represented San Francisco what since Andy Jackson was President.   She represents the Left Coast well.  Fly Over Country, not so much.  May Speaker Tablecloth out live and out serve the late Strom Thurmond 

 I really don’t think the title of this is tremendously accurate. I think it would be far more accurate to say that this was a referendum on Democrats.

As I’ve been saying for months now this is not about Donald Trump. This is about the Democrats and always has been.
And make no mistake about this to Hollywood left was pouring in millions of dollars. This is in fact the most expensive house race in American history. Yet despite spending all that money, the Democrats still couldn’t sell their Wares.
The question of the Democrats becomes America asking… “Can you hear us now?”

Give me the reactions I’m seeing this morning and I’d say you had to leave the answer is probably not.

Noticed this passage in a discussion on Facebook yesterday and I think it deserves mention here… For all of the noise being made by the left in the anti-police antagonists for some reason they never got around to mentioning this particular tidbit…

?”No criminal record”, the class-warfare-instigating meme breezily lies, omitting a very important word, “serious” (i.e., as in felony). According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, “…Court and driver records show Castile was pulled over or ticketed at least 52 times in Minnesota since 2002, with 86 total misdemeanor or petty misdemeanor counts. More than half of the 86 violations were dismissed, court records show. He had no serious criminal record….”

Oh and by the way, the dashboard video has been released and basically dispels the lies being put up by the left over this.

Now of course this is not going to do anything to Halt the screaming coming from The Usual Suspects. They are very seldom affected by facts anymore unfortunately.

At this stage of the game it’s a race to see who will end up in the financial sewer first. California who was the odds-on favorite and now Illinois.

Facing billions in unpaid bills and pension obligations, the state is hitting a cash crunch that is rare even by Illinois standards.

A top financial official just warned 100 percent of the state’s monthly revenue will be eaten up by court-ordered payments. Rauner is calling a special session of the Democrat-led General Assembly in a bid to pass what he hopes will be the first full budget package in almost three years.

Both California and Illinois are ofcourse being run by …Guess Who?
Oh, and by the way…. How do you have a monopoly on a lottery and not be able to turn a profit with it?

The obvious answer is have government-run the thing.

In the name of the NFL Washington Redskins offensive?   Yes, to some.  Does the federal government has the right to band names that offend some?   No.   So saith the Supreme Court, 8-0, via Power Line. Justice Alito et al:

[The idea that the government may restrict] speech expressing ideas that offend. . .strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”

Justice Kennedy et al:

A law that can be directed against speech found offensive to some portion of the public can be turned against minority and dissenting views to the detriment of all. The First Amendment does not entrust that power to the government’s benevolence. Instead, our reliance must be on the substantial safeguards of free and open discussion in a democratic society.

God given rights, free speech, trump special snowflake sensitivities, at least for now.

Interesting. The same people that are trying to convince us that the islamists beheading people do not truly represent Islam are the same people trying to convince us that that moron in Alexandria doesn’t truly represent Bernie Sanders supporters.

I know David’s covered this one, but I have a angle I think worth discussing.

TAUNTON  — Michelle Carter, the Plainville woman who urged her high school boyfriend to kill himself through a series of texts and phone calls, was responsible for his death, according to a judge who today found her guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the landmark case.

So the judge feels that the woman is guilty for inciting violence. Granted, violence against oneself, but still, there is a responsibility for the death. Okay, let’s take that at face value for the moment, and compare that to other incitements we’ve seen recently.

The civility and decorum of political debate has devolved since the election of Donald Trump at a breathtaking clip.

I know Republicans who are afraid to say they are Republicans and support Donald Trump. Over disagreements about the proper role of government, Republicans are regularly called racists, homophobes, Islamaphobes and sexists.

Today, Democrats regularly impugn the motivations, decency, and even the humanity of their political opponents.

Just a week and a half ago, Kathy Griffin reenacted a beheading of our president.

This week in a Shakespeare play in New York, liberals publicly reenacted yet another assassination of President Trump.

Members of Congress have been screamed at, insulted, and run off the road by angry Democrats.

The so-called peaceful “women’s” rally in Washington included musings of blowing up the White House by star guest speaker, Madonna.

Trump headquarters in North Carolina was firebombed during the primary, and let’s not forget that Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine’s own son was arrested for violence at a Trump rally. 

Of course there are hundreds more incidents, with a hat tip to John Hawkins here’s just 20 of them.

If the woman in Massachusetts is ultimately responsible for the death caused by the messages that she was sending, does that mean that the Democrats quoted in Hawkins article are also responsible for the violence resulting from the messages that they are sending?

I will say this again….If you had any doubts as to whether or not advertising works, doubt no longer. In the end, that’s what this is. A reaction to an advertising campaign. An advertising campaign disguised as news. You simply cannot have 24 hour media coverage that is essentially a call to arms to depose a sitting president and not have people react accordingly.

In the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts  killing a person while driving too drunk to find a bridge is apparently legal, but sending a text message is a felony, so saith Judge Lawrence Moniz from Daily Wire:

[Michelle Carter]instructs [Conrad] Roy to get back in the truck knowing of all the feelings he has exchanged with her; his ambiguities, his fears, his concerns. This court finds that by instructing Mr. Roy to get back in the truck constitutes wanton and reckless conduct by Ms. Carter, creating a situation where there is a high degree of likelihood that substantial harm would result to Mr. Roy.

Ms Carter was not in a position of authority over the late Conrad Roy. She had no authority to instruct Roy in anything, and Roy had utterly no duty to obey Carter’s so-called instructions. Maybe Roy got back in the truck because he rather be dead than have a ghoul such as Carter for a girl friend.

If you don’t like suicide, then don’t commit it. Given the democrat ghouls like Mrs. Pelosi, and Jim Devine, I’d think they would be nervous about criminalizing ghoulish behavior.

Look I recognize this Comey thing is a rather well beaten and deceased equine, but I’d like to try a little thought experiment. Let’s see you can work this one out for yourselves.
We are being told that the Russians were successful in getting through our security and were able thereby to manipulate our electoral system. It’s so bad we’re being told, that they won’t even tell us how bad it is.
When did this happen? 2016.
And who was in charge in 2016 of Security? Whose responsibility was that security? So what they’re saying, the Democrats and James Comey… Is that they failed utterly to perform their job.
So at the outset it appears that it was the Democrats ….and James Comey Rice, Clapper, Etc who failed this country completely in terms of keeping the place secure from outside interference. 
And that’s the best-case scenario. I haven’t gotten to the best part yet. 

The best part is that since this whole thing didn’t become an issue until such time as Hillary Clinton lost the election it would appear that all these people that are screaming bloody murder about interference from Russia in favor of Trump, were willing to suborn such interference so long as it helped Hillary Clinton.
While we’re on THAT subject, the number of connections between the Russians and the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton herself along with John Podesta and a number of others makes the whole idea of the Russians favoring Donald Trump in the presidential election laughable on its face.
So what happened here at the very least is a miserable failure on the part of the Democrats and their fellow Travelers in keeping our electoral system secure from outside interference. At worst,  and more likely, they #arranged that outside interference. There is no other option. And that’s the real big story here. The rest of it is smokescreen. And that’s becoming increasingly clear on a daily basis.

Memo to Bobby Mueller:   Welcome to the kitchen.  The political web site, Hill, thinks it lives in some alternative universe, a/k/a Media La-Le Land, were liberals are free to attack, but somehow conservatives must refrain from responding:

President Trump’s legal team and political allies have launched a preemptive strike against special counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump’s backers are furious about a story that appeared Wednesday in the Washington Post, in which five anonymous sources alleged that the president is the target of an obstruction of justice investigation for allegedly trying to bury an FBI probe into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

So either Robert Mueller, personally or through one of the henchmen he personally hired, leaks like a rusty bucket to the liberal media, but somehow the response to Mueller’s leaks is labelled preemptive. The Department of Justice must make Mueller obey the laws, to which keeps what is secret, secret, or fire him.

Meanwhile, is anybody investigating Mr. and Mrs. Clinton’s obstruction of justice, in getting the DOJ to direct the FBI to clear Mrs. Clinton for her reckless disregard of national security?

The left is revealed in the events of yesterday in Washington. At least, it is in the Foreign Press. The Daily Mail for example.

The gunman who was killed by cops after opening fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, the president’s 71st birthday, was a Trump-hating Democrat and Bernie Sanders supporter with a long history of violence.

If you had any doubts as to whether or not advertising works, doubt no longer. In the end, that’s what this is. A reaction to an advertising campaign. An advertising campaign disguised as news. You simply cannot have 24 hour media coverage that is essentially a call to arms to depose a sitting president and not have people react accordingly.

And look, this campaign has been going on an awful lot longer than Trumps been in the White House. Look closely at the writings of hate coming out of this man.

“In response to letter writer Roddy D. Riggs calling me ignorant and making up facts, I say: Look up ‘Causes of the Great Depression,’ on Wikipedia. Income inequality is on the list. This theory was held by economists Waddill Catchings, William Trufant, Rexford Tugwell, Adolph Berle and John Kenneth Galbraith and influenced Franklin D. Roosevelt.

It held that the economy produced more goods than consumers could purchase because the consumers didn’t have enough income. In the productive 1920s, the mechanization of industry caused layoffs and unemployment started a steady rise but the rich got richer.

If the rich paid their fair share of taxes today, we wouldn’t be in this predicament. We need to vote all Republicans out of Congress. We need to demand Congress add 10 or more brackets to the existing tax code. We need 20 brackets to $20 million, and a 60 percent top marginal rate.

We can get our country back if we all vote the right way.”

(James Hodgkinson — letter to the editor of the Belleville News-Democrat, July 8, 2012)

Hat tip to Billy Beck who says “ideas have consequences”.
One of his readers response..”yeah, especially when you don’t use your own…”

Yeah well it’s not like you and I both haven’t been predicting this for some time now Billy.

Over at Q&O, Bruce says in part;

So now Bernie supporters are shooting Congressmen and the left has two reactions:
1: Don’t forget this guy spoke at an event put on by David Duke (so it’s tacitly ok #punchnazis).

2:Gun control, gun control, gun control … oh, and more gun control.

Is anyone addressing the rabid hate the left has been spouting since January, 20th?

Well, of course not. That would be like taking responsibility or something. Maybe even correctly identifying the situation.

And did you notice Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe whose first response was that 93 million Americans were affected by gun violence every day? At that rate there wouldn’t be any Americans at all, by next Tuesday. This is rather strikingly like the homeless nonsense that came up during the 90s.

But as I say I wouldn’t expect the left to actually identify the real problem. That would cause them to become engaged in self-assessment. That is something they dare not do.

Addendum:  (DavidL)

It matters not if the left and media own up to James Hodgkinson.  They already own him.  The linked Daily Mail article includes a video from 2009 where Hodghinson is shown spouting Occupy Wall Street rhetoric.  Hodgkinson was a Bernie Sanders volunteer. In short, the late Mrs. Hodgkingson is the poster child, albeit a dead one, for left wing rabid hatred.

Toxic Masculinity illustrated, male who goes by the name of Lucy Elizabeth Smith, demonstrates how to a rude obnoxious jerk, a/k/a toxic male, from the gentle lady to the North with the snarky website, Small Dead Animals (vulgarity).

Mr. Smith may wear his hair in a ponytail, but he sure needs an anger management class, or two.
