While I have mostly been trying to stay off of this topic since everyone else is talking about it and I have already said likely what is the most important thing surrounding this issue: that the #MeToo movement is a Socratic issue of logic vs. ignorance, I feel compelled to talk about something that happened recently surrounding this entire issue, at least in regards to the way the MSM wants to portray this entire matter.
CNN interviewed a group of five Republican women from Florida last week to ask them some questions on their opinions surrounding this entire case.
Randi Kaye, the interviewer from CNN, asked: “A show of hands, how many of you believe Judge Kavanaugh when he says this didn’t happen?”
To which all five women raised their hands.
One of the women, named Lourdes Castillo De La Pena, elaborated further: “How can we believe the word of a woman from something that happened 36 years ago? This guy has an impeccable reputation. Nobody, nobody that has spoken ill will about him. Everyone that speaks about him. This guy’s an altar boy, a scout. Because one woman made an allegation? Sorry, I don’t buy it.”
Another, named Inna Villarino, added: “In the grand scheme of things, my goodness, there was no intercourse. There was maybe a touch. Can we – really? 36 years and she’s still stuck on that?”
With another woman, named Gina Sosa adding: “I mean, we’re talking about a 15-year-old girl, which I respect. You know, I’m a woman. I respect. But we’re talking about a 17-year-old boy in high school with testosterone running high. Tell me what boy hasn’t done this in high school. Please, I would like to know.”
And another woman, named Angie Vazquez, was savvy enough to ask: “Why didn’t she come out when he was going into the Bush White House? Why didn’t she come out – he’s been a federal judge for over a decade.”
Now, I have mixed feelings about these responses. While I do appreciate that these women are smart enough not to fall for Ford’s evidence-less accusations, some of the answers here are fairly questionable.
Let’s begin with the first answer, the one that Lourdes gave. She mentions that it’s been 36 years since this incident happened and that it’s only been one woman stepping forward to accuse him. While I am of the belief that the Left could and likely would recruit other women to come forth and accuse Kavanaugh of things he likely didn’t do, my bigger issue is with her initial response.
It doesn’t really matter how long ago something happened if it was wrong. Assuming that what Ford is saying is the truth (this is basically the only time I will do this as I do not believe she’s telling the truth), objectively, the only problems I have with this being so old are that:
1) Ford likely won’t be able to remember things in too great a detail. As traumatizing as such an even is for women, it’s also something they’d like to forget.
2) I really do have to ask why she didn’t come forward earlier than this. I believe that maybe she didn’t go to the police because it’s either an embarrassing thing to admit (though it was just groping, according to her, so it’s not as embarrassing as full-blown rape) or the police wouldn’t do much to investigate the issue.
So while I do have problems with the fact that this is an allegation of something that happened 36 years ago, if it did happen, it doesn’t matter how long ago it was. Now, Lourdes could mean to say that Ford’s memory likely won’t be too good and thus, the accusation might not be very credible, but she did not elaborate much further on what she meant by mentioning how long ago it was and why should we believe her considering how long ago it was.
And perhaps my argument is shaped this way because of what the second woman, Inna, said, about it having been 36 years ago and she’s “still stuck on that”. Maybe that’s the reason I made the argument that it doesn’t matter how long ago it was, and I believe that’s a fairly good argument, but Lourdes might not necessarily have meant it as “it was over 30 years ago, just let go!” That’s how I heard it, but maybe she didn’t mean it that way.
Now, the answer that Gina Sosa gives, about this being a 17-year-old boy with raging hormones and “what boy hasn’t done this in high school” does irk me a lot.
Understanding such behavior does not necessarily mean excusing it. Using the “boys will be boys” argument in this instance, under the assumption that Ford is telling the truth, is asinine and wrong. If Kavanaugh did grope Ford when they were teenagers (I feel compelled to remind everyone that I do not believe Ford’s accusation and this is entirely hypothetical) and if they were both drunk, the fact that they were teenagers does not excuse their behavior.
I was a teenager once and I dealt with my share of hormones. I would look where I ought not to look, I would think what I ought not to think and had impulses. But I never acted on those impulses, at least not with other people.
Sosa asks what boy in high school hasn’t done something like that, well I’ll raise my hand and say that I never did. In high school is when I converted to Christianity. Of course, I still dealt with hormones and emotions and impulses, but I knew better than to act on them. If Kavanaugh was a Christian when he was 17, and I mean truly Christian, knowing right from wrong and doing things with the aim to please God, then I have a hard time believing that 1) Kavanaugh groped anyone and 2) he was illegally drinking and getting hammered to the point where he would grope someone.
That’s not to say we don’t sometimes stumble and do something wrong, of course. As I’ve explained in the past, we are all sinners and sin is wrong. But being a Christian tends to lower the chances of doing something like that (and don’t bring up the Catholic Church priests molesting young boys because those “priests” are not Christians and neither is the Pope for ignoring it).
So Sosa’s answer really is not good at all. Understanding that teenagers have hormones does not excuse the actions they partake because of those hormones. If my 15-year-old daughter went to a party, got drunk and got groped by a 17-year-old boy who was also drunk, I would do a number of things.
First, of course, ground her for going to an unsupervised party (I assume it was unsupervised if there was alcohol) and getting drunk at said party.
Second, I would go to the boy, give him a stern talking-to, give his parents a stern talking-to and encourage my daughter to file charges the following day (and not 36 YEARS LATER).
Finally, I would give her a big hug and tell her everything’s taken care of.
But that last one is beside the point. The point is that I would be righteously pissed if a boy did that do my daughter. She would not be entirely without blame for being there and getting drunk in the first place, but I would be angrier with the boy. So Sosa’s answer, even without having a daughter, honestly annoyed me. That’s entirely the wrong answer to give, truthful accusation or not.
Finally, we move on to the one answer to the interviewer’s question that I actually liked, which is Angie’s. Why didn’t Ford bring this up in the past? Why didn’t she bring this up when Kavanaugh was going to the Bush White House? Why not at any point when he was a federal judge, or when he was going to get confirmed as a federal judge? Why wait until now when he’s about to be on the Supreme Court, nominated by a President Ford adamantly disagrees with?
A lot of things surrounding this case raises questions. Such as: “why didn’t she go to the local police soon after it happened?” Or “Why did she write a letter to a Senator 36 years after the incident happened?” Or “If Ford really did not want to come out to accuse Kavanaugh, why write the letter in the first place?” Or “Why did Feinstein sit on that letter until about a week before his confirmation vote? Why not raise this during the hearings I will henceforth dub ‘the Spartacus hearing’?” Or “Why did no one find this issue during the extensive vetting process Kavanaugh underwent before the hearings?”
So there are a lot of questions surrounding this issue that, to me, diminish some credibility of Ford. Add that to the fact she has no evidence or witnesses to corroborate her story or even the willingness to go under oath to testify in a trial that would be equally fair for Kavanaugh and I find it astonishing for anyone to believe her for any reason other than that she’s a woman.
Now, there were more questions from the CNN interviewer that you can hear in the video posted below, but I won’t talk about those as this article is long enough as it is.
The overall point of sharing this is that I believe CNN’s intent for this interview was to have Republican women openly going against Kavanaugh. I think it was an effort to have other Republican women be against Kavanaugh because these ones were. Although, it clearly backfired. I don’t think CNN expected any woman, conservative or liberal, to support Kavanaugh regarding this issue.
Although, I find it interesting that they didn’t get 5 Democrat women to lie and say they were Republicans who were against Kavanaugh. I feel like that would be more along the lines of the fake news nature of CNN, but I guess they decided to go with legitimately Republican women here and thought even Republican women would be against Kavanaugh.
Regardless, CNN failed once again and I get to laugh at their flimsy attempt to destroy Kavanaugh and subsequently Trump, since that’s always the aim of CNN.

Moving away from the hot button issue of the Kavanaugh accusation, I feel it is important to share some feel-happy news in a world that constantly tries to take away your joy. (Not that the Kavanaugh accusation has me down, knowing that it won’t derail Kavanaugh, but the Left tries their best to take away people’s joy).
The feel-happy news, if you really want to call it news, is that recently Chris Pratt had an interview with The Associated Press in which he discussed a number of things ranging from fitness to who his actor role model is (Tom Cruise, surprisingly, but mostly because Cruise does his own stunts), and the topic we’re focusing on particularly: his unabashedly Christian faith.
The interviewer for the AP said the following: “At recent award show appearances, you went out on stage and talked publicly about your faith. Is it an especially important time to do that?”
Personally, I find the phrasing of the question intriguing. He’s not asking if Pratt thinks it’s especially important for him to do it. He’s asking if it’s especially important to do that in our current time. I do not know who the AP interviewer is, but they might have a good eye for what is happening in today’s world and the impact of Christianity.
Alas, I likely will never know if the interviewer is a Christian him/herself and that that was the reason for phrasing the question in that manner, so let’s move on to Pratt’s answer.
“I don’t know that I am so much more motivated by where the world is or if it’s just what I’m feeling called to do right now. I think it’s a combination of both things… That kind of a message, it might not be for everybody. But there is a group of people for whom that message is designed. And nothing fills my soul more than to think that maybe some kid watching that would say, ‘Hey, I’ve been thinking about that. I’ve been thinking about praying. Let me try that out.’ That’s like the only way I feel like I can repay what has essentially been a giant gift in my life.”
A good answer, in my opinion. Obviously, it becomes increasingly important to spread the Word of God in a world that is adamantly rebellious against Him, a world that defies Him at every given opportunity and treads closer and closer towards the devil.
The Kavanaugh accusation alone is proof of this. The Left seeks to destroy him using a letter detailing, with flawed accuracy, events that happened sometime 30 years ago somewhere in the Northeast United States. The accuser brings up no evidence to support her claim, no witnesses to corroborate her claims, has refused to attend a hearing where her story would be heard, and when she agrees, she sets up “fairness” terms where likely she gets to decide what is fair and what isn’t, and demands the FBI investigate an issue they have twice said would not investigate and an issue that really falls under local law enforcement jurisdiction, not federal, not to mention an issue that would have come up during the vetting of Kavanaugh soon after his nomination if it had happened.
And even with all of these facts, the Left, the media and Hollywood celebrities are treating that one letter to Feinstein as gospel and the truth, seeking to destroy the career and livelihood of someone just because he poses a threat to the evil Supreme Court decision of 1973: Roe v. Wade.
Not to get too much into the actual topic, since everyone and their grandmother is talking about it, but it does offer a good example of a world that is getting closer to the devil. A world where the life of a man can be ruined by flimsy accusations that no one should believe, but somehow many do.
But the other part that is important is that spreading the Word of God and thanking the Lord at every given opportunity is something we are called to do no matter what the circumstance. Pratt does well in answering his question by saying it’s a combination of the state of the world today and the fact that he’s called to do it.
Then, the AP interviewer asks the following question: “Does it feel like a risk sometimes in Hollywood?”
To which Pratt answers: “No, not at all… I think that there’s this narrative that exists out there that Hollywood is anti-Christian or anti-religious, but it’s just not the case. They are kind of not anti-anything. They are kind of pro- whatever is authentic to you. And I like that. Because it’s authentic for me to be pro-Christian, pro-Jesus. That’s my thing. I like it. And I’ve never had anyone try to shame me, to my face. Maybe they go say it behind my back. But if that’s the case, go ahead. You can say whatever you want about me – to my face or behind my back. I’m not going to change.”
Interesting answer he gives here.
And there might be SOME truth to what he says. At this point in time, just about everyone, particularly people in Hollywood, knows that Pratt is a Christian. Despite this, he still gets to have lead roles in huge blockbuster movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. He is enjoying pretty great success thus far, even with people knowing he’s a Christian.
However, that is where my agreement with his response ends. I’m not a Hollywood star like Pratt, so it’s not like I have inside knowledge on what happens there regarding this topic, but I know for a fact that Leftist Hollywood is anti-something. They are unabashedly anti-Trump.
Beyond that, they tend to be anti-God as well. Pratt may never have had someone try to shame him over his faith in the past, but we know very well that Hollywood, both in their movies and in their celebrities’ actions, are anti-God.
No, they may not necessarily come out every single day and shout that they hate God, but their actions show these types of feelings.
In their movies, time and time again, they try to shove Leftist messages down people’s throats. Messages such as “there is nothing wrong with being gay” (homosexuality is a sin. Sin is wrong.) or “it’s okay if you have an abortion, it’s just a blob of cells” or “all cops are racists”, etc.
That’s not necessarily every single movie, but we often see these messages in the big screen.
And that’s just mentioning the actual films. This is without mentioning the undoubtedly millions of dollars these Hollywood celebrities donate to organizations such as Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and others that are all inherently evil.
I’ve already explained why the #MeToo movement is evil in a previous article, so no need to repeat myself here. It’s fairly obvious why Planned Parenthood is evil and have written a multitude of articles detailing how and why they are evil. And with BLM, the reason it’s evil is because its leaders try to make every case where a cop shoots a black person strictly about race. Yeah, there are occasions when the officer definitely was out of line in killing someone who was not a threat. Such cases exist, but for the most part, cops shoot to kill someone who is an obvious threat to their lives or the lives of others.
So while Chris Pratt may have never been subject of persecution regarding his faith (at least in person. Social media might be a different story), it’s not entirely accurate to say that Hollywood people aren’t anti-anything. Everyone has an opinion, and they have the right to said opinion.
Hollywood Leftists have the right to promote filth, to support evil organizations, etc. But to say they are not anti-anything is not entirely accurate. These actions show me the kind of people they are: people who do not have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who do not follow His commandments, who do not obey the Lord and go out of their way to defy Him. The actions that I have listed above are proof of this.
Again, they might not come right out and say they hate God, but their actions speak louder than anything they could say.
In any case, I want to focus more on the fact that, regardless of what Pratt thinks is the way Hollywood acts (again, I can’t claim to have more knowledge than him), he himself will not be deterred in his faith in Christ.
That’s what I believe is the most important thing to take away from this and the most important thing to keep in mind. It’s great that Pratt is so open about his faith in Christ and wants to share it with the world. It’s great that he thanks God as often as possible and seemingly, that he prays whenever he can. Beyond all other opinions we may have on this world: whether or not Trump is a good President, whether or not socialism works (it doesn’t and that’s a fact), whether or not we are being finessed by other countries regarding trade deals, what is important is having faith in the Lord.
That’s why I don’t mind that Pratt is not political. That he doesn’t necessarily show favoritism towards one candidate or another. Aside from the fact that he’d effectively be committing career suicide if he were to say he’s a conservative (though I imagine people gather that, knowing he’s a Christian), he knows that it’s more important to focus on matters of Heaven than of Earth. That the Lord comes first and everything else comes last.

There’s something to be said surrounding this very topic: results matter.
But before I get too ahead of myself, allow me to set up the context for this article.
Recently, Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform went to Michigan State University to ask college students about Obama’s ludicrous attempt at taking credit for Trump’s economic success.
As a reminder, here’s what Obama said: “When you hear how great the economy’s doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started.” Oh, I remember. It started the day Trump got elected, with the stock market soaring to new heights as a result of the election. Remember how the Left said Trump would cause the market to crash if he got elected? I definitely do.
Now, while some on the Left such as anyone within the Leftist media or anyone who dons a “D” next to their name in Congress might believe this ridiculous idea that today’s economic success is even partly due to Obama, it seems that the college students Cabot interviewed did not share the same views.
In the video (below), Cabot asks multiple students about what Obama said and their overall opinions on the economy and Trump’s job regarding it.
One student said: “[Obama’s] been out long enough now, [the economy] is not on him anymore, it’s more on Donald Trump. I guess he’s a little bit in the wrong.”
Another said: “I would, unfortunately, side with Trump on this one. I think he has done a lot for the economy that Obama didn’t do such a good job on, so I’ll side with Trump on that one.”
One student noted that “I feel like once a President’s done, they hand it off… in terms of [economic] confidence and changing people’s attitudes, I would say that’s mostly Trump.”
Now, that’s not to say that these students are going to start supporting Trump. Pretty much every single student interviewed either visibly or verbally showed that, while they agree with Trump over Obama on this issue, they do so with some dismay. You can see that when one of the students said that she “unfortunately” sided with Trump on this. One of the female students went as far as to say that she finds Trump’s tweets “because I’m a girl and a lot of [the tweets] are against us.”
I don’t want to get too much into this, as I’d rather relish in the idea that college students actually agree with Trump on SOMETHING, but I will quickly say that not a single Trump tweet is against women. If they call someone out, they call a particular someone out (be it Pelosi, Feinstein, Warren, etc.) but do not make any sort of generalized sexist comment towards women. So, obviously, I disagree with the student on this.
That being said, she does follow up her comments, getting back on topic, that “economically, I feel like he’s really helping us.”
Now, I don’t know who “us” is in this scenario. Since she mentioned the fact that she’s a girl (do I call her out for not saying she’s cisgender, thus offending transgenders? Kidding.) she could mean he’s helping women economically, since female unemployment rate is hovering in the low 4% according to the website statista.com. She could also mean millennials, in which case the overall unemployment rate also shows promise for this age group. Or she could mean Americans altogether, in which case I would refer you to the overall unemployment rate, the African-American unemployment rate sitting below 6%, the female unemployment rate, the Hispanic unemployment rate sitting at 4.7% according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as the overall growing GDP hitting over 4%.
To summarize, yeah, Trump’s doing pretty good for all of us.
Now, let me return to the initial sentence of this article. Earlier, I mentioned that results matter. What exactly do I mean by that? Well, think about it. When else are we going to see Leftist millennial college students agree with Trump on anything?
The mainstream media “reports” everything that is happening (or not actually happening) as though it’s doomsday, it will doom Republicans in November and will lead to Trump’s impeachment. The media loves to pretend the world is on fire when a Republican is President and they make sure that they blame this "doomsday" on him, but when a Democrat is President, they go out of their way to ensure things that are actually going bad aren't blamed on the Democrat President.
Just think about the way the media reported things during Obama's presidency. They would report that things were bad, but they made the effort to drive any blame away from Obama and instead, placing it either on the Republican majority in Congress when they had it, or the Republican minority in Congress when they had it. Either way, everything wrong that happened was not the result of Obama’s socialistic rule that naturally and intentionally destroys societies but the result of the Republicans either pretending to fight or even being completely complacent.
In the case of Trump, it’s 180 degrees backwards. Everything bad that happens is Trump’s fault, even if he has no control over it. I mean, for crying out loud, they were blaming HURRICANES on him. That shows you the mental state of the media is quite poor if they blame THE WEATHER on Trump. It’s really no different from the crazies in the Muslim world who blame Israel for, well, the weather. It’s almost literally the exact same thing.
With the constant reporting of Trump basically being Hitler, it really is a marvel that these Leftist college students, who themselves do not necessarily like Trump, go as far as to properly give credit to Trump for the success he’s had regarding the economy.
And that’s why I say that results matter. These students, despite the fact that they agreed with Trump with varying levels of dismay, and even go as far as to mention what they don’t like about Trump (seemingly, it was mostly his tweets), can all see that Trump is actually doing a good job with the economy. Even if they don’t think he’s a good President, they can’t help but agree that he has helped with the economy.
Now, I could sit here and list the other achievements that show that Trump is a fantastic President not just in terms of the economy but many other aspects of leading the country, but that’s for another time. As it is, I want to take note of the fact that, despite the media and the Left’s best efforts to pin Trump as the worst President to have ever served office, they can’t successfully convince people to ignore every facet of reality.
The reality is that Trump’s economy is the best I have ever seen (being 22-years-old, that’s not saying much, particularly since I only have Obama’s economy for comparison) and that it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
From what I can gather, the only way the economy will slow down is if the Democrats win the House (especially if they win Congress). The disruption they would cause would send us back to the economic stagnation we were all too familiar with during the Obama administration. Sure, Trump can do some other things that will certainly help the economy (I still don’t believe Democrats could impeach Trump without a supermajority in the Senate), but things would definitely slow down significantly.
While I don’t necessarily believe that any of the interviewed college students will vote for a Republican candidate, the fact that they go as far as to acknowledge this is Trump’s economy and his to claim success over is significant.
Who knows? Maybe one of them will have a change of tune about the Democrat Party and vote Republican, either this November or sometime down the line. There certainly have been a lot of lifelong Democrat voters who have had enough with the Party of the ass and have decided to vote for Trump and/or other Republicans.
One can hope.

One of the bigger stories for the past couple of weeks has been the accusation of Supreme Court pick Justice Brett Kavanaugh of having sexually assaulted a woman decades ago while he was a teenager and intoxicated.
On the outset, this represents nothing more than a political hit job against Kavanaugh simply for being conservative and for being picked to the Supreme Court by Donald Trump, whom the Left abhors. And while this is accurate, I believe the stipulations for this particular case go well beyond this and highlights a problem in today’s world, a problem that Socrates himself saw in ancient Greece: a trend away from logic and into ignorance.
Let’s look at what we know from this case. The accuser has refused to come forward and face the man he’s accusing, she has passed a polygraph test, but cannot recall with accuracy where or even when this sexual assault even took place, only offering the vague timeline of sometime over 30 years ago. She presents no evidence to support her claims, no evidence to corroborate her claims and the two people she accuses, both Kavanaugh and someone she claims helped Kavanaugh, both have refuted her claims.
Not to mention that her lawyer has even boldly stated that it wasn’t the accuser’s job to corroborate her story and the accuser herself is a huge Leftist activist who has supported Obama, Hillary and the DNC.
So basically, this woman is saying the soon-to-be-confirmed (yes, I believe he will be confirmed no matter what) conservative Christian judge selected by President Donald Trump, whom the Left vehemently hates, floats a huge claim that she refuses to corroborate or present any evidence of, refuses to even step forth to face the man she’s accusing, cannot accurately recall the where or when of this event, and we’re just supposed to believe her?
This isn’t just an attack on a conservative nominee for the Supreme Court, it’s an attack on logic and people’s very intelligence.
But it perfectly represents what the #MeToo movement, and the Left overall, are in today’s world: feelings over facts.
It doesn’t matter that the woman’s accusation is incredibly shoddy, in both what she’s claiming and the timing for the claims. If it helps the Left in any matter, that’s fine. It’s this willingness to ignore logic in favor of moving a political agenda that drives closer a comparison between today’s America and Socrates’ Greece. Socrates feared that ignorance was prevalent and that logic was dwindling. He perfectly understood that civilized society could not survive ignorance. That ignorance turns civilization from a civilized society to a savage and barbaric society devoid of knowledge and logic, doomed to return to a primal form of life.
This is what the Left is doing. The #MeToo movement takes any woman’s accusations and takes them to be 100% truthful. It doesn’t matter if there is a lack of evidence or if the claims do not appear credible. In their minds, every claim by every woman is credible… unless a woman makes a claim against a top Democrat in the government.
While the Left tries to push the rhetoric that Kavanaugh’s accuser is telling the truth and is to be believed, they try to bury the far more credible and provable story that Keith Ellison has physically abused his ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan, despite the fact that Monahan has presented text and 911-call evidence to support her claim.
But since Keith Ellison is a top Democrat representative and key leader in the resistance movement against Donald Trump, the Left utterly ignores the woman’s plea.
Much like the double-standard that exists in the justice system regarding Republicans and Democrats (Republicans pay heftily for things Democrats do all the time), there is also a double-standard in the #MeToo movement’s unofficial justice system. Any woman who comes forward to accuse a Republican is immediately credible, regardless of lack of evidence or even willingness to corroborate her story under oath, but any woman who comes forward to accuse an important Democrat figure must be silenced.
And it’s not like this is anything new. With Justice Clarence Thomas, the Left completely believed Anita Hill’s story. With Bill Clinton, the Left tried to destroy the women who claimed he sexually abused them or worse. Anita Hill is considered a hero to the Left and women like Monica Lewinski, Juanita Broaddrick and others are either sluts or not to be believed, despite the evidence they present.
But it’s not just that there’s an issue of a double-standard. The very fact that there even is such a double-standard at play here highlights the Left’s willingness to move away from logic and reason and to complete and utter ignorance.
Not that this should come as any surprise to anyone. I’ve often said that the Left needs a perpetually dependent base for them to have power. This dependency isn’t just financial, but also intellectual. The Left feeds people crap like “we’re killing the planet” or “a fetus is not alive” and people eat it up, leading to people continuing to support, vote and keep these deceptive people in power.
The Left’s mission is to rule the people with an iron grip. Their desire to bring about socialism in this country only solidifies that fact as true. But things aren’t quite so simple. In order to achieve this, a number of things must happen, chief among which is the destruction of logic and wisdom, something that would set us back by millennia.
Think about it, people who regularly and effectively employ logic can recognize the illogical inconsistencies and fallacies of Leftist narrative. The Left REQUIRES people to simply believe their claims and will go to any lengths, most particularly lying, to get people to believe them.
Regarding Kavanaugh’s accuser, it’s completely illogical to believe her story. She does not present any sort of evidence, does not and will not corroborate her story, does not accurately remember key factors of her story which any ACTUAL victim of sexual abuse likely would, did not come forward about this story until THIRTY YEARS later when her supposed assaulter is about to be confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States and has a history of being a Leftist activist and Democrat supporter.
It’s not for any of the first few reasons that the Left believes her. It’s because she is useful to the Left that they believe her.
If I were to accuse Senator Elizabeth Warren of having sexually abused me a decade ago, offered no evidence or witnesses to support my claim, offered not even any intention of corroborating my story and have been shown to be a far-Right conservative Christian who is anti-Left, anti-socialist and would vote against Warren were I to live in her state of Massachusetts, the Left would dismiss me as not credible and a liar seeking to perform character assassination on Warren. And they would be right to do so.
But because Kavanaugh’s accuser is a devout Leftist who can help the Left in their pitiful resistance efforts, the Left dismisses all the idiocy of the entire accusation.
It does not help further anyone’s intelligence, but rather flat out insults them. It marks a threat to logic and intelligence itself for it to be as successful as it is. It should have immediately been recognized as a political hit job and Kavanaugh should be well on his way to getting confirmed as scheduled without any possible or actual delays.
The fact that it wasn’t immediately tossed aside like Booker’s and Harris’ attacks against Kavanaugh is indicative of the problem Socrates faced in Athens: ignorance is taking over and logic and intelligence are being cast aside.
Like I said, allowing for ignorance to take hold of a civilization is to witness the regression of a civilized society being turned into a barbaric one.

As much as I find it astonishing that I could ever agree with Michael Moore on something, it’s finally happened. While we disagree on virtually everything ever in relation to politics, we seemingly share a common belief: President Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020.
Now, there’s added stipulation to that idea, which is where we disagree once more. Moore believes Trump will win only if Democrats become complacent and believe they will win 2020 guaranteed. Such cockiness obviously back-fired in 2016 and Moore believes such cockiness, if it shows itself again and gets Democrat voters to not even bother voting because Trump will lose no matter what, will guarantee Trump gets re-elected.
Now, I did say I disagreed with that, but I should clarify that I don’t totally disagree. You see, he’s right in that Democrats will 100% lose in 2020 if they become as complacent as they were in 2016. However, he’s wrong, in my opinion, that avoiding such complacency will mean Trump loses in 2020. But the reason I argue this, I will share momentarily. First, I want to share what Moore actually said.
“Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot. He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose.”
Moore went on to say that Trump is “an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president. He figured out how to win by losing the election. How did that happen? Historians are going to deal with this for years to come.”
Okay, there are a lot of things to get through with this. First, I don’t think I need to explain how Trump is not an “evil genius” as Moore describes him. He’s one of the most pro-life Presidents we’ve seen, he’s done his part to help out people who have suffered from hurricanes, he’s defended the people of Syria from their own government and he’s created millions of jobs and a booming economy that doesn’t show signs of slowing down.
Second, he thinks Hillary was the smartest person ever?! HAHAHAHAHAHA! If she’s the smartest person ever then I’m the tooth fairy.
Third, I have a few theories as to what he means by “he won by losing the election”. Either he is talking about losing the popular vote and still winning the election, which makes sense since he’s talked about it in the past (as has virtually every other salty Democrat and Leftist ever) or he’s talking about the hoax of a Trump-Russia collusion that “helped” Trump win an election he would have otherwise lost. Either could be the case, but I’m thinking the former is what he means. Either way, it’s dumb.
We have an electoral college for a reason. Trump won 304 delegates while Hillary won 227. Trump won 2,626 counties compared to Hillary’s 487. Take away California and you have FAR MORE votes for Trump than Hillary. The reason we have an Electoral College is so that a single state can’t decide who wins the presidency for the rest of the country. The Electoral College gives every state a voice.
And I didn’t hear these children whining and moaning when Mitt Romney won the popular vote in 2012. By their own logic and complaints, the candidate who puts dogs on top of station wagons should have won over Obama. And yet, not one of them complained about the Electoral College.
Moore then goes on to theorize that the person who wrote the anti-Trump op-ed for the New York Times was either Trump himself or “one of his minions.” I won’t discuss this because the entire thing is asinine and only reinforces our belief that there is a silent coup against Trump. This op-ed does more damage to the Left than to Trump.
Now, earlier I promised to explain why I think Moore is wrong about Democrats being able to beat Trump in 2020 if they go out to vote. I will explain this now.
Moore believes the sole reason Trump won was because Democrats stayed at home in 2016. While that certainly helped, I fundamentally believe Trump would have won even if they turned out to vote. Why? Because Hillary would’ve meant more stagnation for America. We did not want that and chose Trump to lead the country.
In 2020, Moore believes Democrats can beat Trump if they turn out to vote. Wrong again, for multiple reasons. First of all, while Trump was relatively unproven in 2016, Trump has done more than enough to show he is a competent leader and a fantastic President for this country both in terms of a massive and speedy economic revival (that’s Trump’s, not Obama’s) and in terms of foreign policy, with a nearly destroyed ISIS, a denuclearizing North Korea and a defunded Iran (though Obama probably has done lasting damage there anyway).
Second of all, and I think this might be just as important a point to make: no matter who wins in 2018, Trump will likely win in 2020.
Say that Republicans keep control of Congress. The economy won’t likely slow down, more jobs will be created and the country will keep improving and improving. With all the success that another two years will bring (remember, we still haven’t even hit 2 years into Trump’s presidency and he’s done more than the last 2 presidents combined) and the country knowing full-well who can take credit for this American revival, Trump will almost certainly win in 2020.
Now, say that Democrats win either the House or Senate, or even both. For all their talks about impeachment, actually getting the job done is virtually impossible. They need two-thirds vote in the Senate (and no nuclear option will be available), as well as the VP to vote in favor of impeachment. If he doesn’t, Congress will have to find the votes to override the VP’s veto. Unless the Democrats get a super-majority in the Senate, the chances of which become zero if they lose even one of their seats, Trump won’t be impeached.
However, that does not mean the Democrats are left in tatters. If they can’t impeach Trump, they’ll settle for disrupting everything he tries to do (which even then they won’t be able to disrupt absolutely everything) and slow down the MAGA agenda. If the Democrats win in 2018, Trump likely won’t be impeached, but things will not be pretty at all. Things will be slowed down, taxes will get raised and the economic revival we’ve been experiencing will dilute and we’ll go back to some level of stagnation.
That being said, Democrats winning in 2018 will all but guarantee Trump wins in 2020, because we all know he is a master at successfully pinning the blame where it must go. While other Republicans are complacent and don’t put the blame on Democrats, at least effectively, Trump will be able to successfully blame the Democrats for any damage they cause.
The only ways I see Trump losing in 2020 is either Trump majorly messes up and loses support, which is not too likely to happen or Democrats win a super-majority and successfully impeach Trump, in which case there wouldn’t even be a 2020 election for Trump.
But a lot of things would have to go right for the Democrats that I simply don’t think will happen.
Now, I’m not guaranteeing this by any means. A lot of things can happen between now and next year, let alone 2020. With all of that said, this should not be an excuse not to go out and vote Republican this November. Though the likelihood of Trump getting impeached is low, a Democrat House and/or Senate could derail the country and set us back years.
Losing 2018 wouldn’t be the end of the world but it’s not an ideal scenario. I’d rather have scummy Republicans who are fairly complacent but will keep taxes low and jobs coming in and will leave Trump alone for the most part than have scummy Democrats who are thirsty for blood from Trump (figuratively) and anyone who ever dared support him, and thus, dared defy them.
Republicans may not have done much to earn our votes, but Democrats have done everything to let us know those nut-jobs should not get anywhere close to public office, lest they be allowed to run this country in the direction of Venezuela.
While there are some good Republicans, I do not see a single good Democrat. I’d rather take a shot with an untrustworthy Republican who might do the right thing on occasion than vote for a Democrat whom I fundamentally know wishes to turn this country upside down and into something it was never founded to be.
At this point, this race isn’t about Republican vs. Democrat. It’s not Right vs. Left. It’s Good vs. Evil. I’m not saying all Republicans are good, but voting for Democrats, at this stage in the game, is effectively voting for evil. What I mean by good vs. evil is it would be good for Republicans to keep control of Congress, even if they still play political games and try to attack Trump on occasion. But allowing Democrats to have control of either chamber of Congress, or both chambers of Congress is allowing for evil to basically run amok.
Regardless, that’s to be discussed at a later date. For now, I just wanted to take note that Michael Moore, for as ignorant as he is, is not a complete moron. He’s at least smart enough not to get too confident in Democrats. For that, I’ll give him credit. For everything else, however, that’s a different story.
Even when I agree with Moore, I end up disagreeing with him to some level. Isn’t life just funny sometimes?

About a week ago, I wrote an article talking about how it’s ridiculous for Leftists to claim they are siding with God or that they are doing God’s work whenever they support or do the work of the devil. Though I did not put it quite that way, that’s basically the message of the article. Well, I guess we can consider this article a sort of sequel to that one.
Recently, Chelsea Clinton had an interview on SiriusXM with a panel of fellow feminazis. One of the hosts, Jess McIntosh, asked the former First Daughter: “How do you keep going in the hopes that your daughter doesn’t have to have this fight?” Referring to the fight to allow women to kill their unborn.
Chelsea replied: “Every day, I make the moral choice to be optimistic that my efforts and my energies, particularly when I’m fortunate enough to be in a partnership with fellow travelers, hopefully will make a difference.”
“And when I think about all of the statistics – that are painful – of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre-Roe and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that.”
I will just say that I’m not surprised that Chelsea Clinton continues to use long-since debunked rhetoric and “statistics” to further her cause. As I mentioned in my article titled: “Feinstein Tried To Corner Kavanaugh On Roe Question And Failed”, according to a 1972 CDC report, the maternal death rate from abortions was only 39 in the United States. This means that, in the year before Roe v. Wade happened, only 39 women died due to having an abortion.
Going further, even two pro-choice people, Dr. Mary Calderone (former PP medical director) and Dr. Bernard Nathanson (former abortionist and co-founder of NARAL) admitted that the numbers they were using were fictitious.
Dr. Mary Calderone wrote in 1960: “About 90% of all illegal abortions are being done by physicians… whatever trouble arises usually arises from self-induced abortions which comprise approximately 8%...”
Dr. Bernard Nathanson admitted his organization (NARAL)’s numbers of between 5 and 10 thousand women dying every year from back-alley abortions “were totally false… but in the ‘morality’ of our revolution, it was a useful figure, widely accepted…”
So right off the bat, we can call out Chelsea on her b.s., knowing full-well that not too many women died due to abortions before 1973. It also reinforces that article’s point that it seems that abortion is to blame for women’s deaths or complications, not the legality of them.
Of course, that’s now where we’re ending this. I’ve yet to get to the most egregious part of the interview. Chelsea continued talking (and she seemingly gets her speaking skills from her mother), saying: “[outlawing abortion is] unconscionable to me, and also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also unchristian to me.”
I have quite a few things to say about this, only a handful of which I allow myself to write in an article so as to not be vulgar.
First of all, I’m surprised she didn’t use this psychic power of precognition to let her mother know that she would lose the 2016 presidential election.
Second of all, what’s truly unchristian is supporting the cause of allowing women to end the life of their own children under the guise of “women’s healthcare”. Not only is this willful support of an evil practice that is literally meant to end a life, but it’s also deception in fooling people into supporting this. As egregious and disgusting as the Left is, they are conscious enough to recognize that only a handful of really messed up people would ever openly support the idea of killing children.
The Left always tried to dehumanize an unborn child, saying that “it’s not a kid, it’s a fetus.” Well, using all-knowing Google to do some basic research, fetus literally means: “an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception.” Would you like to know the synonyms? They are: embryo (though technically that’s the gestation period that comes before being a fetus and after being a zygote) and UNBORN BABY/CHILD!
Fetus literally means child. So not a single heartless or ignorant Leftist can possibly tell me a fetus is not human or not a child. Even the Leftist overlords at Google disagree with such a point.
Not that it matters too much to the Left. Not many people would sign on to the idea of killing a child in the womb, so they have to disguise it to make it not look so horrible, so they say it’s “women’s healthcare”, even though healthcare is meant to do the opposite of killing someone. They say it’s “women’s liberation”, going by the insinuation that having a child is somehow comparable to being a slave.
There is nothing Christian about the killing of the innocent. For Chelsea to call herself “deeply religious”, it must mean something entirely different from what she thinks. No religion in the world, as far as I know, supports abortion. Even Islam does not support it and even forbids it unless the pregnancy puts the mother’s life in danger.
Which reminds me, how does pregnancy put someone’s life in danger? I could maybe understand if it made complications for someone who is extremely skinny or overall unhealthy, but most women, when they have children, tend to be relatively healthy. I don’t think I’ve seen any cases in which a woman HAD to terminate a pregnancy due to her life being at risk. I’ve only seen cases of women WILLINGLY ENDING THE PREGANCY BECAUSE IT’S INCONVENIENT!
Regardless, I’ll return to the main point. Willingly killing a child inside the womb is not something religious people tend to support. So either Chelsea belongs to a secret religious group that supports abortion (the Left religiously supports the idea that people affect the climate, so I guess that’s not too far-fetched) or she’s lying about being religious. She’s certainly lying about outlawing abortion being unchristian.
Now, the interview did not end there. Since Chelsea mentioned that she would get some flak over these comments, the interview went into attack mode, attacking the pro-life crowd.
First, Chelsea tried to make herself the victim by saying she has been “compared to slave owners and Nazis” over her positions on abortion. Well, considering Planned Parenthood is basically the legacy of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, a Nazi scientific institution focusing on anthropology, human heredity and eugenics, and that the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute was basically Nazi Germany’s version of Planned Parenthood, only with the pretense that they were making the human race “better”, I’d say the comparisons are fairly accurate.
One of the panelists also directly attacked pro-life people, calling us “anti-choice” instead of pro-life, and calling us “ugly” and that “we love guns”. I guess that last part is true, though I don’t know what that has to do with this current conversation.
But the reality of the situation is that we’re FOR THE PRESERVATION OF LIFE! And the reality is that the only people that are ugly here are the Left. I don’t usually attack someone based on their looks, and I won’t here now. What I’m talking about when in say they’re ugly is what’s in their hearts: evil.
What is truly ugly is trying to convince women that it’s okay to kill their unborn because “they are not alive yet” and that doing so is a kick to the “patriarchy” or some such nonsense. Abortion is nothing short of death. Abortionists are glorified killers. And those who support this effectively support the death of human life.
No matter what way anyone says, that it’s “humane” or some other bullcrap, nothing will ever convince me that abortion is right in any case.
Oh, and if it’s “humane”, wouldn’t that imply that whatever is in the womb is ALIVE?! Because you don’t humanely kill what is technically not alive. We humanely kill animals when they become too old or when they get run over on the streets and are still alive. To say that abortion is humane is 1) erroneous, considering the methods of abortion and that PP has sold the parts of fetuses and likely still do and 2) would be conceding the point that a fetus is alive. You don’t do anything humane to something that isn’t alive.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies at the gate.”

With a booming economy, a nearly defeated ISIS, a denuclearizing North Korea and successful trade war pressure to make better deals, the Democrats have to have something to attack Trump (and thus, Republicans) with in order to stand a chance at actually taking back the House. So, like with many other attempts, they go with a tried and true measure: blame the Republican president for a major hurricane.
While they’ve tried to do this with Hurricane Florence, since the effects of the hurricane won’t be known until after it’s gone, the Left-wing media is trying to make last year’s hurricane that hit Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria, Trump’s Katrina.
Despite the fact that Trump’s response was excellent according to even Governor Ricardo Rossello, who said: “The president and the administration, every time we’ve asked them to execute, they’ve executed quickly,” back in September of 2017, and the fact that 20,000 pallets of undistributed bottles of water delivered in the aftermath of the hurricane are sitting on an airport tarmac, the Left is out to destroy Trump with a death toll reaching 3,000.
However, that number is about as real as climate change. How? The way this number came about was through the same way the Left argues that climate change is real: through a computer model.
Allow me to give you the context.
Last month, George Washington University published a new study that estimated “excess mortality” over Hurricane Maria’s impact on Puerto Rico, and estimated, over a six-month period following the hurricane, that there were 2,975 “excess” deaths due to the hurricane.
But the way they came up with this estimate wasn’t through counting bodies, but through calculations in a statistical model subtracting the number of people who would’ve died over that same period of time had the hurricane not happened from the number of people who actually died during that time period.
In other words, they ESTIMATED the death toll STRICTLY THEORETICALLY! As in WITHOUT EVIDENCE!
Now, aside from the fact that multiple news organizations are running with this number as the official death toll for Puerto Rico, the Left is also criticizing Trump over his comments regarding this.
Trump tweeted: “3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000…”
“… This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!”
Now, it’s only natural for death tolls after disasters and tragedies to go up as time goes on. We’re still seeing people dying because of debris and other factors after 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina’s death toll technically kept going up even years after the storm. However, he is right in challenging these numbers. They are far too big in too short a time-span, particularly considering the great response from the Federal Government in the aftermath of the storm, for this to be even remotely accurate.
And it’s because Trump is bold enough and smart enough to challenge this number that the Left attacks him, saying he is challenging this “without evidence”. Well, the number itself was presented without evidence and the MSM ran with it as though it’s the gospel!
Not to mention there are a lot of other estimates that have the death tolls going well over the 4,000s. So it’s clear that the Left is really trying to make a mountain out of this more-than-likely molehill.
Now, that’s not to say that we shouldn’t dismiss the hurricane’s devastation on the people of Puerto Rico. It destroyed homes, killed dozens according to official estimates (and likely more at this point, though still less than that 3,000) and left Puerto Rico in shambles. They need help and they should be receiving it. The problem comes with the fact that Puerto Rico is basically run by socialists, with one of its cities’ mayors being under FBI investigation over corruption, and Puerto Rico was basically already in dire need of help before the hurricane due to a debt crisis over recent years. People in Puerto Rico were already getting screwed by their government before the hurricane.
And taking into consideration the fact that 20,000 pallets of water bottles are sitting on an airport tarmac, that raises some level of suspicion regarding the local government. Why not distribute those water bottles if things are so incredibly dire? I’m not disputing that things are dire, but if anyone wants to put blame on anyone, it would have to go to whoever was responsible for delivering those water bottles, not Trump’s administration.
Not that any of these things will matter to the Left. If they can successfully blame Trump for Maria (they’re already trying to blame him for Florence) then they have some ammunition to use for the midterms. It doesn’t matter that the number is without evidence. It doesn’t matter that even Puerto Rico’s governor initially praised Trump over his response and effectiveness. It doesn’t matter that there are tons of undistributed water bottles in an airport tarmac in Puerto Rico. A death toll of 3,000 puts Bush’s Katrina death toll to shame and we all know how effective the Left was regarding that storm.
The interesting thing is that I doubt this will do much to help the Democrats down the line. Those who were already planning to vote Republican likely won’t just accept what the fake news media says and what the Left tells them. Those who were already planning to vote Democrat are already fairly energized, but that won’t matter if Republican voters are energized themselves.
But that’s to be talked about when we come closer to November.
The point I want to make with this article is that the Left’s purpose in using this number is to make Maria Trump’s Katrina. The problem the Left faces here is that Trump won’t sit quietly while the Left berates him over it. He always fights back, as he’s clearly doing now. And as we have seen plenty of times, Trump seems to be right while the Left is wrong (and lying).
Democrats only tend to do well when they can make Republicans submit. If Trump can successfully push back against this number, which will likely be difficult even if we all know it’s fake, then that obliterates the Left’s best weapon as of this moment.
I say it will be difficult even if we all know the number is fake because feelings don’t care about your facts when it comes to the Left. 3,000 is a big number that will trigger an emotional response. The Left, the media, the Democrats and Democrat voters won’t care that the numbers are presented without evidence and are not factually accurate. They care that the number is big and that they can make the connection to Trump, somehow.
Not to the fact that Puerto Rico, under socialism, was already a “s**thole” and that Puerto Ricans are being denied the water they need by someone within the local government, but the fact that Trump is currently POTUS.
Do you think this number would’ve ever come up if Hillary were POTUS? Of course not. The tally would likely be around the official estimates and, naturally, slightly increasing over time. But never to those levels under a Democrat President.
This death toll serves the same purpose as climate change in general: attack Trump and Republicans over supposed inaction. Never mind that Trump did his part in assisting Puerto Rico.
Again, at the end of the day, I doubt this will have a tremendous impact on the midterm elections. I’ve already made up my mind that I’ll vote for every Republican candidate on the ballot in my state. Even if they’re not great or not actual conservatives, it’s better to deal with these people than risk everything being thrown away under a Democrat majority in either or both chambers of Congress just because they don’t know how to deal with losing.

You look at the state of today’s world of politics and all you will find is rabid hatred that goes well beyond reason on one side and constant push back against such things on the other (mainly Trump, but a few others as well like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz).
We see tech giants like Facebook and Twitter punishing those who think differently from them while allowing terrorist organizations, former terrorist leaders and open racists to continually sow discord and hateful bigotry just because they side with the Left or are Muslim (or both).
But on an individual basis, things aren’t particularly great either. What do I mean by that? Well, before I get much more into it, allow me to talk about the big reason I decided to write this at this time.
Recently, a conservative pro-life activist, journalist and commentator named DC McAllister was subject to seemingly legitimate threats of rape and murder, not only of her, but even her family.
Obviously, such threats and actions go further beyond Twitter and Facebook’s tendency to simply ban someone and effectively silencing them. Such threats are not only meant to silence people, but to terrorize them. And if those threats are legitimate, they go even beyond, to the point where physical, emotional and mental harm is caused to a human being.
But what did McAllister do or say that would garner such response? Apparently, this tweet: “At the root of #abortion hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex. Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from their heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity.”
Harsh, but truthful words. There is nothing in that tweet that I disagree with. But naturally, there are those who disagree tremendously.
Now, it’s one thing to disagree with this. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and to expressing their own opinion. However, what NO ONE is entitled to is making threats to other people that they will rape them and/or kill them. NO ONE has that right. But it’s when people do these sort of things that we really see the death of civil discourse.
I don’t think I have to explain to you how such threats are not civil. Whenever someone threatens violence against someone else, that is when you have a break in civil discourse. This is what annoys me about Antifa thugs and the way they are portrayed. The media will defend them and call them “angels” when they are being devilishly evil, threatening people, destroying property and often times harming others. They're breaking the law.
And there are countless times that I can recall where conservatives have fallen victim to this break in civil discourse and venturing into barbarism.
While nothing has yet happened to DC McAllister, and we hope and pray nothing does, this would not be the first time someone has at least made threats against someone, let alone actually tried something.
Last year, we had a socialist Bernie supporter use the Left’s most hated weapon, an AR-15, to shoot Republicans during a baseball game between members of Congress with the intention to kill as many Republicans as possible. The Left went on to blame this on Republicans two days later.
About a year ago, Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted by a Leftist neighbor. Recently, a socialist threatened to shoot up a MAGA event at a Trump Hotel in D.C. And there have been countless other times in which deranged socialists have threatened to assassinate Trump or kill conservatives.
Hollywood actors have stated their desire to beat Trump to a pulp. Even former VP Joe Biden has done this multiple times. Recently, a Broadway actress “joked”: “where is John Wilkes Booth when you need him?” And shortly after Trump was elected, David Brooks casually mentioned that Trump should consider whether he wanted to resign, be impeached or be assassinated.
Putting together the tasteless jokes, the open desire to use violence against someone they disagree with, the threats made against conservatives’ lives and even the actual attempts at taking people’s lives, I really do have to ask: how is any of this considered tolerable or OK? How can anyone say to me that Leftists are tolerant?
From what I can see, Leftists are the most intolerant people around! Doing a simple Google search for the definition of “tolerance”, what Google comes up with is the following: “the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinion or behaviors that one does not necessarily agree with.”
Ignoring the fact that Google uses the word to define the word and that’s something that annoys me, under such a definition, the Left is THE OPPOSITE OF TOLERANT!
When you think of Leftist tolerance, what comes to mind? Aside from the fact that it’s as real as a leprechaun, a unicorn or a successful socialist country, one thinks of tolerance for gay people, tolerance for transgender people, tolerance for Muslims, etc. When a Leftist says he’s tolerant, this is what he means.
However, for the most part, all of those things are part of what the Left ALREADY AGREES WITH!
Now, before some people get mad at me, I’m not saying all gay people are Leftists. Matter of fact, I know a good deal of gay people who are Trump supporters and are conservatives in every other aspect of their lives. However, one cannot be faulted for believing most gay people tend to be liberals.
After all, it was the Left that sought to legalize gay marriage. It’s the Left that seeks to normalize gender dysphoria. It’s typically been the Left that has “helped” gay people in their agenda.
According to Google, that’s not tolerance. Tolerance is tolerating what you disagree with. The Left, for the most part, does not disagree with the LGBT agenda and community. The Left LOVES whatever is against God and Christianity. Since homosexuality is a sin, it makes sense for most gay people to be against God and be Leftists.
Gay marriage disrupts the idea of the sanctity of marriage and disrupts the nuclear family. Transgenderism disrupts the idea that God created someone perfectly and the way He wanted them (and disrupts a basic scientific principle).
The Left ADORES whatever can cause chaos and disruption, particularly against Christianity and God. And it’s that adoration for such chaos and disruption that perfectly exposes how intolerant they are.
They only “tolerate” what they agree with and who they agree with. The ironic thing is that if a gay person claims he or she is conservative, the Left becomes livid and trashes them, further exposing their intolerance. So it’s not that they are tolerant of gay people. They are just tolerant of the ones that agree with them. And as Google tells us, that’s not tolerance at all.
In regards to the Republicans at the baseball game, Rand Paul, Donald Trump, DC McAllister and every other conservative person who has either been threatened for their beliefs or has actually been attacked for their beliefs, you can see right there the intolerance of the Left. You can see perfectly the death of civil discourse.
Having a civil argument with someone regarding politics is increasingly difficult. Not only because people will sometimes have such nuclear responses, but because there is another way to destroy civil discourse.
What I talked about mostly was the worst kind of destruction of civil discourse: flat out threats and violence. But another way people destroy civil discourse is every single time someone uses the race card or the gender card or the gay card or something that victimizes the user and accuses the other person of some form of bigotry.
“You disagree with my position? RACIST!” “You are punishing me for cheating during a tennis game? Racist and sexist!” “You are arresting a colored person because they broke the law? CLASSIC RACIST PIG!”
It is altogether impossible to have civil discourse with such people because it quickly devolves into a screaming match about who is and isn’t a bigot for the sole reason of holding a differing point of view. It’s asinine, but it’s ever present in today’s world.
This sort of disruption of civil discourse can be traced to the Left’s attempts at victimizing everyone. Every time a cop shoots a colored person, they immediately believe racism is the cause. Not that maybe the colored person was a threat to someone (granted, there are cases when the colored person was not a legitimate threat to anyone and was still gunned down), but that the cops simply wanted to kill a black person or a Hispanic.
Obama even had an entire PROGRAM designed to overlook the crimes committed by minorities (misdemeanors, mostly).
So it’s the Left, with their vivid intolerance towards those they disagree with and their tendency to victimize a group of people, who have a hand in the deterioration and ultimate death of civil discourse.

It’s not surprising to see the Left and the MSM calling a Republican “worse than Mussolini” or “worse than Bin Laden” or the big one: “worse than Hitler”. Likewise, it came as no surprise to me when I saw that MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough essentially said Trump is “worse than the 9/11 terrorists”. But I feel compelled to attack this entire notion in one go, so that’s what I will try to do here.
First, let’s begin with Scarborough’s comment. He wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post that Trump poses a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the 9/11 terrorists did. He argues this by using something Roger Cohen wrote for the NYT shortly after Trump’s election: “America is an idea. Strip freedom, human rights, democracy, and the rule of law from what the United States represents to the world, and America itself is gutted.”
I’m sorry, just who exactly is stripping freedoms, human rights, democracy and the rule of law from what the U.S. represents in the world? It wouldn’t happen to be the Democrats who persistently try to take away people’s 2nd Amendment rights, right? It wouldn’t happen to be the Leftist tech giants taking away people’s right to free speech, right? It wouldn’t be Google trying to influence the 2016 election by providing free rides for Hispanics in key states to the polls so that they might vote for Hillary, right? It wouldn’t be the Clinton campaign, John McCain, MI6 agents, the FBI and DOJ working together to write a phony dossier to suggest Trump-Russian collusion, right?
When you look at the Left’s actions during, before and after Trump’s election, you will see that, according to Roger Cohen’s own definition, THEY are the ones gutting America! Donald Trump has been cutting regulations imposed on businesses by the Obama administration, securing that businesses have a little more freedom when it comes to how they manage themselves. He has done wonders for the pro-life group, thus ensuring people inside the womb have the human rights the Left adamantly wants to take away. Regarding democracy, I just have to say that we are not a democracy. We are a constitutional Republic. In a democracy, there is no electoral college and thus, no balance between states in elections.
And if you want to talk about rule of law, just look at the work ICE and border patrol do. They ENFORCE the law. The law that illegals constantly break and the law that the LEFT wants to eliminate.
Scarborough also insists that America is diminishing its position on the global stage under Trump, signifying that he is more dangerous than the 9/11 attacks were.
Are you kidding me? Which President was it that intended for America to take a back seat in the world by "leading from behind"? Which President allowed for a “JV” squad to retake key positions in the Middle East and become a massive threat to Western Civilization? Which President bowed down to every threat by a foreign entity and made empty threats against Syria and Russia? Which President forced us into a ridiculous Climate Change deal that would see us paying for every cost? Which President made a deal with A TERRORIST SPONSOR NATION to give them BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO BUILD NUKES? Obama.
Which President has made it his mission to destroy ISIS? Which President has managed to get the little ball of rage in North Korea to agree to denuclearization? Which President has managed to pull out of the aforementioned Climate Change and nuke deals? Trump.
Which President is looking to make fair trade deals with other countries that won’t utterly screw us over?
You see? Trump is doing THE OPPOSITE of what Scarborough says he’s doing or what Roger Cohen is suggesting Trump’s doing. Meaning that either Scarborough is a massive idiot or a massive liar. Not sure which is worse.
Not that I’m surprised, but still.
Comparing Trump to the 9/11 attackers or Hitler or Mussolini or Bin Laden is utterly asinine.
But let’s go down the rabbit hole, shall we?
The September 11 attackers: 1) are dead, 2) are in Hell, 3) were RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS aka the term Obama seems to be allergic to and 4) followed an ideology that seeks to eradicate all opposition, be it through murder or forceful submission and an ideology that seeks to set the world back THOUSANDS of years.
Hitler: 1) is dead, 2) in Hell, 3) was a SELF-ADMITTED SOCIALIST, 4) caused one of the largest massacres of a single group of people the world’s ever seen and 5) ruled his country with an iron fist, eliminating any and all opposition to him.
Mussolini: 1) is dead, 2) in Hell, 3) was a fascist, which, as we know, is AS LEFTIST AS COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM and 4) ruled his country with an iron fist, eliminating any and all opposition to him.
Stalin (yes, I’ve heard comparisons to him as well): 1) is dead (you get the point, I won’t include this more), 2) was a COMMUNIST, 3) ruled his country with an iron fist, eliminating any and all opposition to him.
Bin Laden: (do I even have to say why this is a ludicrous comparison?)
Trump may not be perfect, but he’s a hell of a lot better than any of these bozos by a mile. What these people have in common is not that they are similar to Trump. Quite the opposite, they are more similar to today’s Democrats.
Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin all having been Leftists, you can clearly see the comparison. Although regarding Bin Laden, even I won’t try to compare them to him. But not because they are any less evil. It’s just that Bin Laden was not like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin or Democrats. He was not a ruler of a nation, but rather, of a terrorist organization. He did not seek to rule a country and crush the people with an iron fist, but to spread terror across the world, as well as Sharia Law.
This is why the comparison between Trump and Bin Laden doesn’t even work with the Left’s narrative. Bin Laden was never a world leader. Never a ruler of a country. He was a glorified thug who was absolutely insane and absolutely evil.
But it’s because of that absolute evil that one can more easily compare him with the Left. I’ve said this multiple times, and have recently made it astoundingly clear that the Left is evil.
If any comparisons can be made about anyone, it’s the Left who ought to replace Trump in such conversations. THEY are the ones who support very similar principles and policies. THEY are the ones who, given the chance, would do the same thing to Christians and conservatives as Hitler did to Jews. It might sound a tad extreme, but extremism is the Left’s MO. Just look at today’s world in regards to anything the Left does and I challenge you to find anything less than extremism.
Forcing young girls to endure a grown man using the same restroom? Forcing a Christian baker to bake a gay wedding cake? Forcing Google employees out of their jobs for stating facts the Left doesn’t agree with? Forcing health organizations to declassify gender dysphoria as a mental disease, but classifying video game addiction as a disorder? Forcing the United States’ Department of Justice to conspire against a political candidate the President at the time and Leftist establishment don’t like in order to affect the results of an election and steal people’s vote?
What part of these things is not extreme?
So I do not apologize for saying that the Left would LOVE to send Christians and conservatives to concentration camps. Given that the Left currently is sending us to Facebook and Twitter jail if we express thoughts that do not align with the Left, I wouldn’t be surprised if they wanted to do worse. They do not deserve the benefit of the doubt, because I have no doubt, given the chance.
So for Scarborough, or any other Leftist, to try to compare Trump with “bad person x” is completely ridiculous. The Left shares far more in common with the horrible dictators of the past than Trump does.

That is a general principle I think we can all agree on and I will return to this general principle momentarily. What really compels me to write this article at this moment is the fact that Tennis star Serena Williams is showing Hillary Clinton-like behavior after her defeat at the US Open with her whining that she lost due to “sexism”, although she is also going further than Clinton by crying “racism” as well.
While I did not necessarily watch the match, I have seen its fallout. One can summarize Williams’ behavior in a single word: disgusting.
Of course, I could also use more synonyms and call it utterly unsportsmanlike, but you get the point. What she did on and off the court is disgusting.
But what was also disgusting is what Katrina Adams, chairwoman and president of the USTA, did following Williams’ defeat. She said: “Perhaps it’s not the finish we were looking for today, but Serena, you are a champion of all champions. This mama is a role model and respected by all.”
Allow me to call b.s. on several counts here. First of all, she was clearly pandering to the crowd who were booing the result of the match. Now, I won’t attack the fans since it makes sense that they had a favorite to win this tournament. However, the fact that Katrina would put Serena in a pedestal she adamantly does not deserve and panders to the crowd shows that same Leftist mentality of pandering to people.
Second of all, what does she mean “not the finish we were looking for?” Aside from pandering, it indicates some potential bias. What, the black female athlete that just had a kid so it’s understandable that she is not as good or as fit as before was supposed to win? The black female athlete that has more trophies than I have socks was supposed to be victorious? The black female athlete that is favored to win just about every single match she has was supposed to win? Kind of like Hillary was supposed to win? Give me a break.
Finally, that last statement is an utter fallacy. She is not a role model for anything other than whiners and giant babies. Accusing the ump of “stealing” her point when she was both being soundly beaten, and was cheating by having her coach visibly using hand signs to signal her, all-the-while later crying “sexism” and “racism” after she lost is not a good role model for anyone and surely not worthy of respect from anyone.
Which brings me to my overall point. Everything she did was not only indicative of a cry-baby who can’t stand to lose but also of a Leftist cry-baby who can’t stand to lose. There’s a reason Rush Limbaugh and I have both referenced Hillary Clinton when talking about this. She IS Hillary Clinton.
Everybody and their mothers thought she would win, everybody and their mothers were shocked to see she lost and then she goes on crying and whining that she was somehow “cheated” out of her victory due to “sexism”.
In this instance, both Hillary and Serena perfectly fit the bill.
Leftism is more than a mere ideology. It’s a disease that infects everything it touches and corrupts it. From governments that rob from their people to industries that berate their people to academia and sciences where they berate their people and more recently, sports, where they, what do you know, berate their people!
Obviously, I’m not just talking about tennis here. I’m also talking about the self-righteous jerk named LeBron James who goes out of his way to attack the best President we’ve likely ever had over b.s. claims of racism and bigotry that the LEFT fabricates on a daily basis. I’m also talking about equally as self-righteous, but nowhere near as good at what he does since he was a terrible QB Colin Kaepernick, who somehow believes has sacrificed everything for something he believes in.
No, good sir, you have not sacrificed everything. You are still obscenely rich and are even more popular than you were before this whole thing started. Turns out, leading your team to a 1-10 record before getting benched for THE REMAINDER OF YOUR CONTRACT is not something that warrants popularity.
Kaepernick has done the opposite of sacrifice. He has PROFITED off of the division he creates. Again, this is why I bring in Leftism into this whole thing. Not only is Kaepernick now an annoying face of the Left, but he demonstrates, as well as the rest of the NFL players who kneel for the flag and anthem, that Leftism has infected the NFL.
Leftism has infected the tech industry, what with Twitter banning a Benghazi hero for badmouthing and telling the truth about Obama, while Hamas, Louis Farrakhan and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are all still able to use Twitter. And let’s not forget that Facebook often puts people in a sort of “jail” if they express any sort of opinion that differs from the overlords’.
And this is without mentioning that MasterCard and Visa both blocked donations to “David Horowitz Freedom Center” some time ago – yet another sign of Leftism infecting the tech industry (the issue has since been resolved, but they still tried to pull this crap).
Leftism can infect every facet of life. College and universities have long been infected by it. The tech industry has been infected by it. Science has been infected by it. The world of sports has been infected by it.
I used to laugh whenever people would say that “liberalism is a mental disorder”. I would tend to disagree, saying it’s just an opinion that can be easily refuted by facts. That thought has since changed.
It’s not just an opinion, it’s a death cult. There is nothing outside of it that can be allowed to exist. You can’t believe in traditional marriage. You can’t believe in life inside the womb. You can’t believe in Christ. You MUST believe in government; in Leftism.
You look at the headlines and what’s happening out in the world. Whenever the Left has something to do with it, you can’t help but think there’s something seriously wrong with them. They don’t just twist the truth, they obliterate it and replace it with their own brand of it.
They don’t just bend reason, they obliterate it. Who in their right mind would vote for a Democrat after that embarrassing display during the Kavanaugh hearing? Who would side with Serena Williams after she shows herself to be a massive cry-baby who needs to be soothed by mommy Katrina after she lost? Who would support the blatant disrespect of the very flag and country that ALLOWS FOR SUCH BLATANT DISRESPECT OF IT?!
It’s not reasoned thought to support these people. It’s not reasoned thought to back Cory “Not Very Smarticus” Booker. It’s not reasoned thought to back Kamala “immigrants have more rights than your children” Harris. It’s not reasoned thought to support Colin “I’ve made more money off of this division than I ever would have being a crappy quarterback” Kaepernick. It’s not reasoned thought to support Serena “I lost to an Asian woman because of racism and sexism” Williams.
Their actions are worthy of a spanking by their parents, not worthy of praise and support! But they all share one thing: Leftism coursing through their veins. For Booker and Harris, it makes sense, since they are evil Democrats who want to destroy this country. But for anyone outside of the establishment, it makes ZERO sense to support Leftism or socialism.
And it’s not like it’s easy to convert them. Even with facts, with evidence and with logic, what keeps these people glued to the Left’s side is emotion. Bernie is a lunatic but, somehow, people connect with him. They are emotionally invested in him and what he says. Thus, they are emotionally invested in socialism.
Ben Shapiro often says that “facts don’t care about your feelings”. Well, unfortunately, the opposite can also be true. For Leftists, feelings don’t care about your facts. You can present the evidence that socialism has failed everywhere it’s been tried, with communism going further than simply failing, given communist China can’t go full-on communist without their economy collapsing on itself. Leftists won’t care. You can present the evidence that gun control doesn’t work and they won’t care. You can present the evidence that fetuses are LIVING HUMAN BEINGS and they won’t care.
The reason I often call the Left evil is because that is the best explanation I have for their behavior. What they do, what they want and to the degree that they want it simply makes no logical sense. So it’s not that the Left is dumb. If they were dumb, they wouldn’t be much of a threat. They are smart. Very smart. So what drives the illogical turd that is socialism isn’t idiocy, but rather evil.
The greed of Man in wanting near endless power and wealth. The pride of Man in being considered important and even legendary, as well as being needed by people. The lust of power. Understanding that Man is naturally evil is what helps me recognize that the Left is inherently evil.
The Left infects people’s mind, heart and soul. It’s not logical, it’s not reasonable and it’s not rational. It doesn’t make any sense from a logical perspective, unless you throw in the fact that Man is naturally evil. Socialism only makes sense when you are either involved in it and benefit from it by screwing other people over (the government, Democrats, etc.) or when you really have no idea what it is or how bad it is since we don’t have it here (everyone else).
Socialism – Leftism – is only ever good, ironically, for the people socialists and Leftists despise: the elite; the ruling class; the 1%. And through the use of deception, it grows and infects others like a disease. Thankfully, it’s not terminal, but it can be hard to cure.
As with many other things, Jesus Christ is the answer. Do you think that if Serena Williams were a Christian (or at least a true Christian) that she would have behaved in the manner that she did? That if Kaepernick were a Christian that he would have willingly profited off of the division and chaos he was creating? That if Booker, Harris or any other Democrat were true Christians that they would implement the policy that they do or act in the way that they do?
Of course not. If they were followers of Christ, they would understand that 1) Tennis is just a game, even if it’s also someone’s passion, that still doesn’t excuse abhorrent behavior 2) creating division for personal benefit is a sin (greed, pride, you know, the deadly ones?) and 3) trying to replace God with the government is blasphemous and horrendous and should never be attempted (and also will never succeed for obvious reasons).
Now, I understand that there are plenty of Christians who are Democrats. Here’s the thing: they will eventually stop being either because you can’t be both at the same time for very long. They will either renounce Christ and fully embrace socialism or renounce socialism and fully embrace Christ. There is no in-between.
It’s Hegelian Dialectics to its core. The thesis (Christianity) and antithesis (socialism) will inevitably collide within a Christian Democrat to create a synthesis (either they will remain a Christian or a Democrat but not both).
Regardless, I should really wrap up my point now. Leftism infects everything it touches and corrupts it. Only Christ is the cure for it.
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
