No, I have not joined the dark side, I can assure you. The fact that Hillary Clinton might run for 2020 makes me happy not because I admire her or some literally insane nonsense like that. I don’t want her to win the White House, knowing full-well she would be terrible for the country. However, I will explain why I am happy to hear this momentarily.
First of all, while nothing’s exactly official yet in terms of the Hillary campaign, the reason this is even being talked about in the manner that it is is because of a Wall Street Journal article titled “Hillary Will Run Again”.
I don’t know about you, but when I first saw that, I honestly thought of the phrase “The South will rise again”. Funny, considering it’s Democrats who fought to keep black people as slaves. I even tweeted that that title sounded like it was Hillary’s “The South will rise again” moment.
In any case, let’s dive further into the article. The sub-headline reads: “Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.”
Yet another statement that brings a smile to my face.
For further context, this piece was written by Mark Penn, a pollster and senior adviser to both Clintons from 1995-2008, and it was also written by Andrew Stein, who was the Democratic Manhattan borough president and New York City Council president.
Here is their lead paragraph: “Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle – back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”
To be 100% honest with you, upon reading the subhead and the lead, I honestly thought the writers were trying to roast (make fun of) Hillary to some extent.
Let’s go over a few things from the subhead and lead. First, they mention she is “reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand…”, they mention this is Hillary Clinton “4.0” and that she is coming full circle, back to “the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994”.
I’m sorry, I must’ve missed something important, because that’s exactly the same Hillary Clinton I voted against in 2016, will vote against in 2020 should she miraculously “win” the nomination again and the same Hillary Clinton I have seen for quite some time. How do you reinvent yourself into a lunatic liberal when that’s already what you are?
The other thing that made me think these two were roasting Hillary was when they mentioned: “She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way…”
Maybe I took it to mean something else, but that sounded a tad bit condescending, don’t you think? Not condescending to Obama and Trump, but to Hillary. It’s like saying “this boxer won’t let a little thing like getting his butt kicked for 11 rounds stop him from winning in the 12th”. It might sound like they’re trying to uplift Hillary, but it also comes off as giving a back-handed compliment. Like saying “she messed up majorly and screwed herself to a post twice before, but now, she’s ready to hopefully avoid screwing herself again.”
The article then says: “Hillary Clinton 2.0 was a moderate, building on the success of her communitarian ‘It Takes a Village’ appeals and pledging to bring home the bacon for New York. She emphasized her religious background, voiced strong support for Israel, voted for the Iraq war, and took a hard line against Iran.”
“As Hillary 3.0 catered to the coastal elites who had eluded her in 2008, Mr. Trump stole many of the white working-class voters who might have been amenable to the previous version. Finally she had the full support of the New York Times and the other groups that had shunned her for Mr. Obama – but only at the cost of an unforeseen collapse in support in the Midwest.”
Okay, I have a few things to say. First, I shall repeat an earlier question: how do you reinvent yourself into a lunatic liberal when that’s already what you were? The fact that they use “2.0” and “3.0” and now “4.0” indicates they believe Hillary is somehow different today than she was as a New York Senator, Secretary of State, or DNC candidate.
Second, I thought it was Trump colluding with Russia that cost Hillary the election. How would Trump “stealing” white working-class voters be a factor whatsoever if Trump and Putin were colluding behind closed doors, offering each other gay sexual acts (and that’s something the Left has been saying, ignoring their hypocritical homophobia) and ultimately stole the election from Hillary. We even have an investigation into the matter, don’t we? If that’s not what happened and it was the fact that Trump “stole” the white working-class and others who were legitimately left in the dust by a Democrat Party that is trying to become the Democratic Party of Mexico, then why do we have an investigation into something that didn’t happen and something that even they don’t actually believe happened?
(All of that was sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell. I know precisely why this hoax of an investigation that some on the Left don’t even really believe is still ongoing.)
Finally, Trump didn’t “steal” the white working-class. The white working-class was altogether abandoned by the Democrat Party. Though they may have been the party of unions at one time, that’s not something they even care to keep anymore. They hope to ride on minorities’ backs to win them elections (yet another slavery reference?). And if they don’t win them, they can blame the white working-class and white women for their losses, which is the equivalent of touching a hot stove and being surprised that it burned them.
Turns out that abandoning an entire class of voters doesn’t exactly encourage those voters to vote for you.
In any case, the WSJ article is not done. They still offer hilarity and back-handed comments:
“[Hillary] will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career. You can expect her to run for president once again. Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”
“Mrs. Clinton has a 75% approval rating among Democrats, an unfinished mission to be the first female president, and a personal grievance against Mr. Trump, whose supporters pilloried her with chants of ‘Lock her up!’ This must be avenged.”
“Expect Hillary 4.0 to come out swinging. She has decisively to win those Iowa caucus-goers who have never warmed up to her. They will see her now as strong, partisan, left-leaning and all-Democrat – the one with the guts, experience and steely-eyed determination to defeat Mr. Trump. She has had two years to go over what she did wrong and how to take him on again.”
That is an awful lot and I don’t think I can go over absolutely everything. This article is plenty long as is and I have yet to even state why this whole thing makes me happy.
So allow me to do just that. The reason I am happy Hillary is running again is because after her defeat, she has only gotten worse in my eyes, and likely in many people’s. After the election, she went on a long trip of mental breakdowns and even wrote a book titled “What Happened” to try and reason why she lost. Now, I didn’t read that book, but I take it it mentioned Putin, Russia, racism, sexism, bigotry, and all the excuses she could possibly get out of her hot sauce bag.
And this is ignoring the fact that there have been revelations that it was HER campaign that tried to steal the election and still managed to lose somehow. HER campaign hired foreign agents to write a fake dossier about Trump. HER campaign was the one that was helped by the Obama DOJ, FBI and FISA court.
She tried to steal an American presidential election. And this is ADDING to her rap sheet of crimes connected to the Clinton Foundation including selling 20% of our Uranium supply to, well, what do you know? VLADIMIR PUTIN! And let’s not forget that she also STOLE the Democrat nomination away from Bernie back in 2016 as well. Now, I’m personally glad she did that, considering the disaster that a possible Bernie Sanders presidency would’ve wrought (I still think Trump would’ve won, but just barely, kind of like in 2000). However, one cannot deny the dishonesty and overall wrongful act that was committed by the DNC to crown Hillary with the nomination.
If she runs again, and if she becomes the nominee again as these two writers say she will, then she will be utterly crushed even worse than last time.
What Trump didn’t have in 2016 was experience in the field and a record of successful policy, which is natural given he was an outsider at the time. Now that he’s had 2, and by the time 2020 comes around, 4 years of experience, he has only improved his chances of winning in 2020 to the point even Michael Moore legitimately believes he will be reelected if facing against anyone but Michelle Obama (and I think he could even beat her).
So I sincerely hope she wins and she becomes the nominee once again.
Now, regarding the last few paragraphs that I just shared with you, some of it returns to my earlier question of reinventing yourself into something you already were. They mention she is now left-leaning, partisan and all-Democrat as though she wasn’t in the past. Don’t make me laugh.
And one last thing. She didn’t get beat by an amateur. She got beat by TWO amateurs. Here, they were only thinking about Trump, who never held public office and was most definitely an amateur at the time. But we can’t forget that she lost in 2007 against an amateur who was US Senator for only TWO years, after serving in the Illinois State Legislature and was a “community organizer” before that.
But in any case, I look forward to the 2020 campaign on the Democrat side. Even if Hillary loses, her running will create some form of divide. If even Nancy Pelosi’s speakership is in peril because of young socialists like Ocasio-Cortez, then Hillary likely doesn’t stand a chance. Ironically, the writers also mention towards the end that Hillary would “trounce” all other candidates, including Joe Biden, but I really doubt the Democrats want to allow Hillary anywhere near their nomination once again… if they’re smart, that is.

The November 6th elections have come and gone, with some very interesting changes and developments occurring throughout the night. Obviously, the biggest story of the night was the fact that Democrats have successfully reclaimed the House of Representatives by taking 26 or so seats, more than enough to give them a majority, slim as it may be.
And as it stands, the White House, obviously, is Republican, the Senate is Republican and now the House is Democrat. I have an awful lot of things to say about this, but I will do my best to keep it as short and concise as possible, while at least touching on the many things I want to discuss.
The first, and most important thing I want to mention is that, as predicted, there was no blue wave. Not even close to that. Yes, Democrats retook the House, which is unfortunate and will only serve to further divide this nation and hurt people in the individual districts, but no one can say that this is a blue wave. Furthermore, Republicans actually did a lot better than you might think.
The House is lost, and that is unfortunate, but one thing that needs to be mentioned is the great number of pickups we got in the Senate. Before the election, Democrats held 49 seats. Now, they only hold 44. Senators Heidi Heitkamp, Bill Nelson, Kyrsten Sinema, Joe Donnelly, Claire McCaskill and others all have been unseated. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) managed to get re-elected, but I find it rather ironic that he is the only Democrat that voted in favor of approving Brett Kavanaugh. The other Democrats who lost on Tuesday all voted against Kavanaugh, so that had some effect, I believe.
Not to mention that Ted Cruz managed to beat supposed Democrat superstar Beto O’Rourke in a race that shouldn’t have been anywhere near that close (though I suspect illegal votes are to blame, if the Project Veritas video covering illegal voting in the midterms is anything to go by). And in Florida, Rick Scott beat incumbent Bill Nelson, with another supposed Democrat superstar, Andrew Gillum, losing in another tight race.
The unfortunate thing is that Florida passed an amendment that will allow 1.4 million felons to vote, so I don’t have much hope for the state in the future. Of course, I don’t think all 1.4 million felons will vote, but felons tend to vote Democrat because Democrats also have a wanton disrespect for the rule of law and law enforcement. Not to mention that Cruz’s victory being about a 2 point margin is indicative of a blue trend in Texas (again, likely affected by illegal immigrants, but also likely affected by Leftists from California and New York moving there and voting for the policies and people that drove them out of those Leftist states in the first place).
Another bit of bad news is that, with Democrats in control of the House, there will definitely not be a wall getting built in the next two years and there definitely won’t be a repeal of Obamacare.
However, let’s move on to the better news. Apart from the pickups in the Senate, you also have to look at the fact that Democrats, at best, will simply be a lot of white noise over these next two years, as they have been over the past two years. Yes, they will launch investigation after investigation, and subpoena after subpoena, but what’s that going to amount to? They’ve been trying to prove Russian collusion for the past two years. Another two isn’t going to get them anything.
Not to mention that, while they might try to impeach Trump, they are not going to even come close to succeeding. Anything Democrats pass in the House will get stopped in the Senate. And an impeachment against Trump requires two-thirds of the SENATE, as well as approval from the VP, or enough votes to overturn the Vice President’s vote against impeachment.
So impeachment of the President would have to be a bipartisan effort, one that I don’t think will happen. Sure, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) might vote in favor of impeachment, but a lot of conservative, not to mention pro-Trump people, won in the Senate as well.
At most, the Democrats will be a major nuisance. Nothing will get passed, but not much was getting passed before anyway. Not to mention that Trump still has EO power, something that his predecessor set as a precedent for a tool for passing laws even when faced with an opposing party majority in the legislative branch.
And let’s not ignore the fact that Democrats winning in 2018 leaves Trump with a clear target for 2020. Trump has mastered the art of successfully putting the blame where it belongs: the Democrats. With nothing passing and Democrats being a massive force of obstruction, and little more, Trump can thoroughly expose the Democrats as little more than a pest that should not be in control of a doll house, much less of the House.
Now, these last two years should have logically led to Democrats suffering big losses in 2018. There was a lot of that in the Senate, but unfortunately, not so much in the House. But there is good news in Democrats taking some of these House seats. As Jake Tapper mentioned during his live coverage of the elections, many Never Trump Republicans were shown the door. Sure, some pro-Trump Republicans also lost, but it shows that going against the popular Republican President is not a solid campaign strategy.
Going forward, such losses should send a clear message that it’s best to support Trump and the MAGA agenda, instead of betraying your constituents. You would think that would be a common sense thing, but what can you do?
One other thing to mention that I want to at least talk about a little bit is that in Alabama and West Virginia, constitutional amendments were passed that protect the unborn. According to the Daily Wire: “In Alabama, voters approved an amendment to the state’s constitution affirming that the unborn have a right to life… In West Virginia, voters approved an amendment to their state constitution, which could end the practice of taxpayers funding elective abortions.” Not to mention that Alabama also passed an amendment that would allow for the Ten Commandments to be placed in public places. So these things are all great pro-life and pro-religious freedom news to take away from the elections.
Now, another thing I want to mention is the fact that, since Democrats won’t be able to pass laws in the Senate, any attempt at getting rid of the GOP tax cuts will be completely futile. We might not be able to pass anything, but neither will they. And these tax cuts are good for quite some time.
Yet another thing to mention is that, so far, Trump is doing far better than Obama did, electoral-wise. Let’s not forget that in 2010, Democrats lost 63 seats in the House and 6 seats in the Senate. THAT was a wave election.
So let’s look at some numbers over the years, according to Lawrence McDonald, who quotes data from the NY Times. In 2010, Obama lost 63 seats in the House. In 1994, Clinton lost 52. In 1958, Eisenhower lost 48. In 1974, Ford lost 48. In 1966, LBJ lost 47. In 1946, Truman lost 45. In 2006, Bush lost 30. In 1950, Truman lost 29. In 1982, Reagan lost 26.
Wanna know how many Trump lost? The same amount as Reagan, which is a pretty good sign, if you ask me, considering Reagan went on to be re-elected in the biggest landslide in U.S. political history.
Now, is this situation ideal? Definitely not. If I could have things my way, every Republican in every race, Senate, House, local, etc. would’ve won. But all things considered, we also stand to gain an awful lot in 2020, and I have no doubt Trump will be re-elected, with Republican control of Congress once again.
The last thing I want to mention, that ultimately has the biggest hand in putting a smile on my face after the elections, is that regardless of who controls the House, who controls the Senate, who controls the White House, it is Jesus Christ that is our ultimate Representative, Senator, and President. No matter who gains control of anything anywhere, Jesus is King. God is in control.
It’s no surprise to Him that Democrats retook the House. And He wouldn’t have allowed it if it weren’t part of His grander plan for us.
The good thing about losing sometimes is that losses can make you humble. After 2016, we were grateful to the Lord for the massive win. After 2018, we are still grateful to Him, and we come to Him in supplication and prayer, that He might heal our nation and that we might continue seeking His blessings.
I trust the Lord, and if He decides Democrats retake the House, then who in the world am I to argue? I merely implore to Him that this will be the definitively last time Democrats ever win anything again.
“The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage!”

With the elections happening tomorrow, let’s take a look at the latest figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) regarding our economic situation in terms of jobs created, unemployment rates, and rising wages.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: “Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 250,000 in October, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7 percent.”
That number is significantly higher compared to September’s surprisingly low number of 134,000 jobs created during the month, which was lower than anticipated. However, as I explained in the article covering the September report from the BLS, one explanation that the Bureau gives is that Hurricane Florence might have had some significant impact on the jobs numbers.
Now, at the end of the report, the Bureau informs us that they had made revisions for both September’s jobs report and August’s jobs report. In their revisions, September’s jobs report was revised down from that 134,000 to 118,000, which is not great, but indicates more jobs were created in the prior month. As the report explains, while September’s numbers were revised down, August’s numbers were revised up. August’s original number was 270,000 and was revised up to 286,000, which makes up the difference for September’s numbers.
Over the last 3 months, the average jobs gain has sat around 218,000. Over the last year, the average jobs gain has been 211,000, so seeing 250,000 in October is fantastic, as that shows higher-than-average job growth.
Moving on to unemployment rates, as I mentioned earlier, the overall rate remains unchanged at 3.7%.
For adult men, unemployment rose by 0.1 percentage points from last report’s numbers to 3.5%. For adult women, the number currently stands at 3.4%. For teenagers, the number went down significantly from 12.8% in the last report to 11.9%, so almost a complete percentage point. For whites, the number remains at 3.3%. For blacks, the number went up by 0.2 percentage points to 6.2%, which is not great. I would like to see that number go down, as we were seeing earlier this year. For Asians, the number dropped by 0.3 percentage points from 3.5% last report to 3.2%. Finally, Hispanic unemployment rate went down by 0.1 percentage points from 4.5% last report to 4.4%.
So overall, there was little to no change made to specific unemployment rates. Teenagers saw the biggest drop in unemployment, followed by small changes for Asians and Hispanics, with blacks unfortunately seeing a bit of a higher rate.
Employment in manufacturing increased by 32,000 jobs and has added 296,000 jobs throughout the year so far. Construction also rose by 30,000 in October, adding 330,000 throughout the year.
Moving on to wages, the report shows: “average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 5 cents to $27.30. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 83 cents, or 3.1 percent. Average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 7 cents to $22.89 in October.”
The overall economy is currently booming, largely thanks to Trump’s economic policies.
Now, I’m old enough to remember Obama saying that a stagnating America was the “new normal” and that we better get used to it. How Obama could ever have been considered to be “Presidential” at any capacity, particularly more so than Trump, is entirely beyond me. Those words appeared to be words of surrender. That we would never see greatness in our country again.
Of course, knowing Obama did everything he could to fundamentally change and destroy our country, saying that America’s best days were behind us was simply part of the whole thing. Matter of fact, I would be willing to bet at least part of the reason Trump made his slogan: “Make America Great Again” was because of Obama’s attitude and words that America will only see stagnation from that point on.
And now, only a couple of years later, we’re seeing the realization of that very slogan. Sure, there is still an awful lot of work to do. We still don’t have a wall at the southern border, largely because of RINOs and Leftists who stand in the way of our border safety, but we are doing fantastic in many other areas.
And making America’s economy boom again is a big part of Making America Great Again. It would be hard to make it great again if we are not doing well economically. It’s hard to do much with next to no money. But that is not a problem we see today, now that Obama is out of the White House.
Part of the reason I seriously doubt there will not be anything close to a blue wave tomorrow is because I believe people see the difference Trump’s economy is making. During the Obama years, the president basically wrote off manufacturing and blue-collar jobs and literally said they were never coming back. Now, they’re back and they brought some friends, too.
The fact that the Democrat Party has essentially abandoned the manufacturing industry and just about every other blue-collar industry, while Trump and the GOP have done tremendous help with regard to those industries tells me those people will not vote Democrat again, if they have in the past.
The Democrats have abandoned blue-collar workers, white people, middle-America in favor of illegal immigrants. This will come back to bite them.
Regardless of what many polls say, I don’t see a blue wave happening. Now, does that mean the Democrats could take back the House (notice how the House is the only thing they talk about, not the Senate, which begs the question of “if there is a blue wave, why would Democrats not win Senate elections too?”) and do some real damage? Yeah. There is a chance, slim as I believe it to be, that Democrats could take back the House, albeit by a relatively small majority. But regardless of how small, a majority is a majority and Democrats have shown themselves to be very dangerous when they DON’T have power. I couldn’t imagine what they would do WITH power.
Democrats winning back the House by a slim majority may not be the coveted “blue wave”, but it still can be dangerous. All logic, all rationale, indicates Republicans winning tomorrow. These great economic numbers, as we have seen, can only be achieved when Republicans are in control.
And the good news is that I do believe Republicans will definitely retain and even gain seats in the Senate, and I have faith that they will also retain the House. I won’t go by early voting statistics one way or the other because some states do not have early voting. Often times, Democrats are ahead in early voting, even when Republicans end up winning. The fact that Republicans seem to be in the lead currently doesn’t mean much to me.
Now, it goes without saying that it is our civic duty as Americans to vote, regardless of what party you vote for. But it is imperative for Republicans to take this election as seriously as we did the last one. Tomorrow, we will see if we are a nation that worries more about creating jobs or creating mobs.
So please, go out to vote. And if I may make a recommendation, vote Republican. We have seen for the last two years how toxic and flat out mentally ill and evil the Left is. And that’s when they are outside of power. We can’t let them back in power, even if by a slim majority.
I’m not saying this jobs report will definitely boost Republicans, but it should. It gives us one final reminder of one of the things we are fighting for pre-election day.
But no matter what, I am glad to see such great jobs reports throughout this year. I just hope we can continue seeing them like this, unimpeded by the damage the Democrats could cause.

I feel compelled to say this right now: What I will mostly be talking about is largely a conspiracy theory. As such, it should not be taken to be the absolute truth. However, the reason for me to write this is because the timing and the magnitude of this targeting of Democrats is highly suspicious to me and I have some theories to go along with these stories.
As you read this article, please keep in mind that these are merely unproven thoughts and theories that may never even be proven.
Over the last few days, a number of suspicious packages have been delivered to prominent members of the Democrat Party and to the news media, particularly CNN. Most of these packages appear to have been pipe bombs, with some having been suspicious powder.
Thankfully, no one is hurt. At least one of the bombs appears to have been a fake one, according to the New York Times, who cited experts who said that the bombs were “the kind more typically depicted on television and in movies, rather than devices capable of detonating.”
A site called Law and Crime released an x-ray picture of one of the pipe bombs, which shows wires sticking out of both ends of the bomb. We know this is not a functioning pipe bomb because pipe bombs do not have wires sticking out of both sides. They are more like dynamite, with the wire sticking out of only one side.
Now, let’s consider who these packages were sent to. They were sent to former President Barack Obama, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (and thus, former POTUS Bill Clinton), Rep. Maxine Waters, former AG Eric Holder, a CNN studio in New York, former VP Joe Biden and George Soros.
None of these people, except for Maxine Waters have strong political power, not even Biden. George Soros’s power comes through his money in affecting politics, but he does not have direct political power, at least in the same way that Waters does. It’s important to understand this because the Left’s rhetoric is that it was a right-winger who sent those packages. If it really were a right-winger, what strategic advantage would Republicans have for someone sending bombs to anyone, let alone people who are under conservatives’ radar? It wouldn’t make any sense in the least, particularly done this way.
No right-winger in his right mind would send a bomb to Democrats 2 weeks before an election if they were hoping for Republicans to win. No right-winger in his right mind would send a bomb to anyone in the first place, but still.
Let’s also consider the timing of these packages. For one, they were sent within days, and in some cases, within hours of each other. They were also sent 2 weeks before one of the biggest elections of our lifetimes. AND they were also sent shortly after Trump, rightfully, capitalized on the migrant caravan heading towards our border, which as I have said in a previous article, could help Trump and Republicans in the midterms.
All of these packages were sent to well-known, but next to irrelevant people within the Democrat Party and the news media. While it would take a crazy person to send bombs to people through the mail, it would take an especially moronic crazy person to send bombs to high-profile figures on the Left and expect the packages not to be intercepted and kept away from the supposedly intended targets.
All of this, alongside the Left’s quick capitalization of placing the blame on Trump (which is frankly expected, but still significant) that makes me seriously question this entire thing.
Over the last couple of years, and particularly the last few months, we have seen an increase in violence coming from the Left directed towards the Right. This sort of thing tends to have an effect at the polling booths. I certainly know that I will vote Republican at least partly because of the Left’s behavior over the past couple of months and years. So I don’t think it’d be a far-fetched theory, though very much a conspiracy theory without proof, to believe that this is largely theatrics meant to garner momentum for Democrats.
Again, we have to consider the fact that the Left has been acting horrendously these last few months particularly, and we have to also consider the fact that the migrant caravan would garner momentum for Republicans.
Have you noticed how the caravan, which has reportedly swelled to over 14,000 illegals, has largely disappeared from the news-cycle apart from news of Trump sending troops to the border?
With all of this in mind, I would not be surprised if this all turned out to be theatrics and a hoax to drive people to vote against Trump’s “anti-media” and anti-Leftist rhetoric.
Again, you have to consider that the media has capitalized in blaming Trump for all of this. Some are directly blaming him for sending the bombs, while others are marginally more “sensible” and are blaming his rhetoric for “emboldening” a crazy right-winger now dubbed the “MAGA bomber”, with that hashtag trending on Twitter.
Given the nature of the Left to do this sort of thing to Republicans, and given that they often blame things on Trump and other conservatives without a shred of evidence (see how they treated Kavanaugh), and I can’t help but think that this was largely orchestrated to drive people to vote Democrat and to perhaps even justify the actual attacks happening against conservatives.
Let’s not forget that the Deep State told George W. Bush that there were WMDs in Iraq when there were none. Let’s not forget that the Left, with the help of the media, often fabricate stories to target conservatives.
The fact that the people targeted were all well-known Leftists, most whom do not have political power so there’d be no real point for a right-winger to target them, these packages have been delivered at a high frequency and that it all comes at an opportune time for the Left, 2 weeks before the election (remember the slew of women saying Trump sexually assaulted them 3 weeks before the 2016 election?) all leads me to be highly suspicious of this entire thing.
Once again, I really must insist that no one take this to be the reality of the situation. This is largely a conspiracy theory with no proof of being the absolute truth. I am merely expressing my suspicions regarding this entire thing. I am not ruling out the possibility of a crazed right-winger actually perpetrating these things. But I particularly must insist that this is not conservatives’ MO, and that this is pretty exclusively what Leftists tend to do, so that draws more suspicion.
As a rule of thumb, I do not trust what the MSM tells me about anything. I especially do not trust people who choose to capitalize on tragedy (or potential tragedy) for political gain as the Left often does and as many people including CNN President Jeff Zucker, lunatic actor Jim Carrey, 1/1024th conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin and others are doing.
So any sort of story that puts the blame on Trump, his rhetoric surrounding the fake news media (there’s a word for what the media is doing regarding all of this. I believe it is called “irony”), or anything that tries to, without proof, put the blame on Trump and/or conservatives I will simply not believe.
My belief is that this is largely theatrics meant to garner momentum for Democrats now that they are having actual doubts about their coveted “blue wave”. It could even be meant to serve as justification for the horrendous behavior they have shown towards conservatives.
By no means am I claiming that that’s the reality of the situation. I cannot prove that this is what is actually happening. I am merely suggesting that all of the circumstances surrounding these events are far too suspicious for me to take at face value.
But as I cannot prove anything regarding whether or not the Left is making all of this up for political gain (even if the circumstances point to that), all I will do for now is pray that this sort of thing does not happen to anyone else, Republican or Democrat, and that there will be a Christian revival that will lead to this sort of scare to no longer happen, particularly with such frequency.

One of the biggest stories this week, which will likely continue being as big, or even bigger in the days and weeks to come, is the fact that anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 illegal immigrants are marching towards the United States, likely seeking “asylum”. It will soon be clear why I am putting that in quotation marks.
Anyway, I say that the caravan is in that range because I have seen multiple different numbers. Many report 5,000 to 7,000, while others like the Daily Wire report 10,000, so it’s not entirely clear which number is most accurate. But regardless of the actual number, that is a lot of people staging what can only be described as an invasion, even if it is an unarmed (though I imagine many people are armed) invasion of the U.S., which is the reason Trump is perfectly justified in using the military to stop this caravan, if that is the route he opts in taking.
However, reading the title, you must know that there is something within this story that yours truly sees as a good thing. I can assure you, I am not becoming a Leftist. I’d rather bathe in a tub of acid than be a Leftist.
I am, however, seeing what can be considered the big picture here. Allow me to explain.
Reading the news of the caravan starting up, leaving Honduras, swelling in size, and forcefully pushing past Mexican police and MPs, how does that make you feel? I imagine disturbed at the very least, or even downright terrified. If so, you can be safe in knowing that you are not alone in this.
While the Democrats might see this caravan as a good thing (without necessarily saying that outright) and while they might choose to ignore it as though it’s not happening, we can’t help but acknowledge it and see it as a very bad thing.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is an invasion. With this many people, likely being helped in being fed, sheltered, etc. (likely by George Soros, but I can’t prove that), all seeking “asylum”, you can’t help but think of this as an invasion. And by the way, I put asylum in quotation marks because these people aren’t seeking asylum from their own countries. If you’ve seen the pictures, you’ll see some people waving the Honduran flag, the Mexican flag and whatever country’s flag these people are from.
If they were seeking asylum or refuge from those countries, they wouldn’t be proudly flying those countries’ flags. When have you seen a North Korean defector waving the North Korean flag? Or a Cuban escapee waving the Cuban flag? When have you seen someone escaping oppression, socialism, etc. waving the flag and proudly representing the country they just “escaped” from?
These aren’t refugees, or asylum seekers, or immigrants. They are invaders.
Knowing all of this, don’t you think this will make Americans like me and you want a border wall at the Southern border? The reason the Great Wall of China was initially built was because during the Qin Dynasty, the First Emperor of Qin wanted to prevent invasion from northern nations. Sure, later it was used to protect Silk Road trade, but it was initially built to guard China from invasion.
Likewise, we see something similar. We have nations down south who don’t want to invade the country themselves, waging war against us, but nations who allow their people to illegally migrate to another country en masse.
It may not be any one particular nation that is the invading force of this caravan, but it is those nations’ people who are forcefully making their way here, all-the-while still representing their countries of origin through the proud waving of their flags.
The idea of a foreign entity invading the U.S. is downright terrifying and should put everyone on edge. This is what we are facing right now, so we have to come up with viable solutions. Allowing this caravan entry into the country means other caravans popping up and doing the same, eventually leading to the utter invasion and transformation of the U.S. away from its founding principles (which are already under attack by the Left anyway) and into a country similar to the rest of the continent.
The blessing in disguise that this caravan brings is that people might become more warm to the idea of a border wall.
When Trump initially came up with the idea of building a “big, beautiful wall” in our border with Mexico, many people loved it, but many people also hated it. The media, unsurprisingly, was adamantly against it, as were the Democrats.
But given how toxic the Left has shown themselves to truly be, I imagine there will be more and more people choosing to vote Republican this November. As time goes on, the media has been a little less adamant to claim victory of a “blue wave”, saying that it might be a close race. Even DNC Chairman Tom Perez recently said that “we (Democrats) always knew that this election was going to be close.”
At the start of the year, everyone was making the same claims that they were making in 2016: Trump is going to lose, Democrats are going to win in the biggest landslide ever, blah, blah, blah.
And now, he says it’s going to be close?
This sort of thing tends to be the case as the race grows near. People become slightly less confident and think it will be closer than previously anticipated. But this sort of thing, coming after a year of touting a blue wave that would sweep the Republicans and crush Trump, is indicative that the Democrats legitimately fear there will be no such blue wave.
Why? Because their attitude and actions have been so toxic that they’re driving people away. Not that they would ever admit to that, of course, but the results will show. The “#WalkAway” movement started for a reason and I believe it has far more traction than the Left believes it has.
This caravan can only help Republicans and Trump come November. It’s indicative of the failed immigration policies of the Democrats that have slowly, but surely been eating away at our border safety, leading millions to enter the country illegally. Now, we have large groups of people forcefully making their way to the U.S., not in the hopes of assimilating, being part of our capitalistic economic system, but in the hopes of exploiting it at best and changing it at worst.
Trump, for his part, is rightly putting the blame on the Democrats. It’s THEIR immigration policy and lack of enforcing immigration laws that has led to this invasion.
Now, the ironic thing is that a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which has Trump at a record high of 47% approval rating (record high for the poll itself), says that Democrats are ahead when it comes to the issue of immigration (up by 4 points on Repubs). Meaning that likely voters trust Democrats a little more on immigration than they do the GOP.
Well, while I find that awfully suspicious given Trump’s high approval in the poll itself and given that immigration is what Trump won on, I doubt such an advantage is actually there. It might’ve been back during the summer when the Left were screaming at Trump over keeping kids in cages (which is what Obama was doing, but no one pay attention to that) and separating kids from their parents (which Clinton started, but again, no one pay attention to that). That’s when Democrats might’ve taken the lead in immigration, but definitely not now.
And with this caravan, there’s no way people aren’t at the very least disturbed by it enough to want to build a wall.
I hate the idea of a caravan of illegals making their way to the U.S. I imagine many people feel the same way. But while Trump might be able to stop this caravan, and God-willing he will, what’s to stop another caravan in the future from popping up?
Trump won’t be President for life like his Chinese counter-part. Eventually, someone else will be President. Hopefully a Republican, but who’s to say that they would be able, or even willing, to stop a future caravan?
A wall, on the other hand, is imposing and permanent (unless you tear it down, of course, but you get my point). A wall would/will be more able to stop invaders. Of course, it will also have to be accompanied by actual enforcement of our immigration laws, but a wall is at least a start.
This caravan, quite frankly, terrifies me. I am not in a border state, so I will not be directly affected by this, but the number of people coming in here illegally, who will definitely be voting Democrat because Democrats don’t care about voting laws (or any laws that don’t benefit them), as well as the fact that, if not stopped, this will definitely encourage more and more caravans popping up makes me afraid for our future.
Because while today it may be anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000, more caravans means more and bigger numbers to the point where we are either completely overrun or our economy is so garbage that people won’t want to come anymore because it’d be no different from Central America. Frankly, it could easily become both.
At this point, I don’t see voting Republican this November as voting for a political party that I more agree and identify with. I see it as the safeguarding of our country both now and in the future. The Democrats have proven they have no desire to protect America, particularly as it is now. They wish to transform it no matter what, even if that means being overrun by illegals.
I’m not gonna be voting Republican just to punish the Democrats for their recent behavior. I’m doing it because they seem to be the only ones that actually give a damn about protecting this country.
This is no longer about certain policies working or not. It’s about the survival of our country as we know it. It’s about defending our country from foreign invaders.
Everyone says this is the most important election of our lifetimes, or at least one of them. They’re certainly not wrong, because this means we either protect our nation from future invasions and the evils of the Left, or we surrender to future invasions and the evils of the Left.

I don’t know if I have written an article where I don’t decry that people who tend to vote Democrat also tend to be ignorant of facts and/or reality. It is not meant to serve as an insult to Democrat voters, but rather, a warning that their vote is helping evil people who wish to take away their freedoms.
Knowing this, I cannot say I am surprised when Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips could not find a single Beto supporter in Texas A&M who could name even one of his accomplishments.
The video (below) begins with Cabot asking some students who they would vote for if the election were held the following day. Unsurprisingly, many said they would vote for Beto for different reasons. One of them said they would vote for Beto because she is a woman, and another said because she believes Democrats help poor people.
Yeah, they help poor people stay poor, but whatever.
In any case, Cabot then followed up by asking them if there were any accomplishments that would make Beto “a good person for office”. As you know by the title of this article, you know that not one of them could point to anything. At best, the only thing they could point to is him being popular; getting his name out there. If that’s the case, then I would imagine Kim Kardashian is just as qualified as Beto O’Rourke to be in the United States Senate based on that alone.
The woman who pointed towards his popularity could not really come up with an actual career accomplishment for Beto, saying she wasn’t as educated as she would like to be.
Another student tried to point to the fact that he’s “been working really hard with everything he’s been doing around Texas.” To Beto’s credit, he has been going around Texas a lot, so he is getting out there unlike a certain failed Presidential candidate who took her election for granted. But “working really hard” is not a career accomplishment. If that’s the argument in Beto’s favor, the same case can be made for Ted Cruz, but accentuated because he’s actually in the Senate and has been doing this for a few years now.
But the same student that tried to argue that his hard work is something to look towards also says that Beto “doesn’t really have the platform to make a huge difference right now.”
Then why vote for him at all? Typically, a political candidate has a platform to make an immediate difference. Whether they stick to it or not is a different issue, but not even having a platform to “make a huge difference right now” should come off as somewhat of a red flag for this student.
Another student actually offered a little bit more (at least in terms of word count, not in terms of substance), saying that Beto might not have the experience, but he would get it as a Senator. Basically, he was trying to compare being a U.S. Senator to getting an entry level job.
Now, as a young man also looking for a job (that pays), I get what he’s saying. I often come across entry level positions that require a college degree (which I’m working towards) and a few years of experience in the field. You have to have a job to get experience but you also need experience to get a job. Such is the paradoxical problem for a young man in America. But Cabot himself argues that there’s a difference between an entry level job and being a Senator.
But the student kept trying to argue that “you can be as informed about a position without actually doing it.” Which is not true at all. Without being a Senator, you cannot fully understand what it is to be a Senator. And while you can learn an awful lot and be as informed about it as you can be, actually doing it is different from imagining yourself doing it, even if you’re well-informed.
For example, I could learn as much as I possibly could about the job my mom has. But that doesn’t mean I would be able to do it just as well as her or even properly at first.
So considering this is a Senate position we’re talking about, what would the reason be for going for someone who has no experience or much knowledge about the job, and apparently no platform or accomplishments to brag about, when you can go for someone who is experienced, knows a lot about the job, and has accomplishments to his name?
Speaking just in terms of this alone, the best choice would be Ted Cruz. If you’re a hardcore Democrat voter, of course, none of that would matter. To them, any Democrat, regardless of experience or accomplishments, is better than any Republican. Which is something that I can understand. To me, just about any Republican is better than a Democrat. So I can understand such a mindset.
But if you’re talking about accomplishments, experience, etc. aside from everything else, then Ted Cruz should still be considered the best candidate even by Democrat standards. Of course, putting everything else in there such as policy, beliefs, etc., then Ted Cruz is a million times better than O’Rourke, who would wind up as yet another Pelosi puppet at best.
In any case, after a little bit of banter of the students’ reasons for voting for Beto, the video ends with some conservative college students saying they will vote for Ted Cruz and offering pretty good reasons.
That portion begins with one of the students hilariously answering Cabot’s question of naming Beto’s accomplishments with: “Unless you count going to jail for DWI as an accomplishment, then no.”
I honestly laughed out loud with that one. Even PolitiFact, the left-leaning “fact-checking” site confirms the fact that O’Rourke was arrested for DWI in 1998, and was even arrested for burglary in 1995, but the case was “disposed of in February 1996”, according to PolitiFact.
Regardless, the first person that told Cabot that he would vote for Ted Cruz said that he had voted for him in the past, and he believes Cruz supports family, which according to the student, is “a very important Texas value”. In a perfect world, that would be a very important world value, not just restricted to Texas, but we don’t live in a perfect world, do we?
The second student to say he would vote for Cruz said that Cruz stands for freedom, such as the freedom to own guns, and that he’s good on immigration, all of which are exceedingly true.
So at least the video ends in a good note. But returning to the Beto supporters, that further shows people that Democrat voters don’t tend to stay informed about issues and candidates. The problem arises in the fact that there is also a slew of misinformation out there, particularly in the fake news media. Now, if the Orange County millennials are anything to go by, young people don’t tend to watch the news. So they don’t tend to think that the hoax that is Russian collusion is a key issue for them, or whatever Trump says about horseface (in my opinion, he was being too nice to Stormy. The other end of the horse is really more accurate of a description).
This whole thing highlights the need to stay informed about people, issues, and what people think about certain issues. To the Left, illegal immigration is good and gun-ownership is bad; MS-13 are angels while NRA members are terrorists. Sometimes, in certain areas, they try to hide who they are (i.e. McCaskill trying to hide how anti-gun she really is). So the need to stay informed about people is very important.
Individually, those students should at the very least look up things Beto has done in the past (apart from his criminal background, at least) and get themselves informed about him. It’s really the least they could do for themselves. And God-willing, doing extensive research will lead them to change their mind about Beto and decide to go for someone who is not going to destroy Texas as much as he can.

It is safe to say that our current political climate has gone well-beyond toxic and entered the realm of violence. Not only are you not allowed to think a certain way, you will be punished for thinking a certain way. Anyone who utters a conservative thought, who dons a MAGA hat, who openly supports this country or their local GOP candidate is considered less than human, and thus, expendable.
Though we have not quite gotten to the point where we are outright killing each other Civil War-style, that certainly seems to be the direction we’re headed. Tensions aren’t being de-escalated, and it certainly doesn’t help that nut-jobs like Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Maxine Waters and many in the MSM, particularly CNN, encourage this violent behavior against the Right.
But here’s the thing: these Leftists, as unhinged, dangerous and evil as they might be, are also huge cowards.
Allow me to elaborate. One particular trend I’ve noticed as of late is that whenever there is violent confrontation between Leftists and Right-wingers, the Left had some sort of advantage. Be it strength in numbers, strength in weaponry, or simply physical strength against someone who is of the fairer sex.
Breitbart News has documented 603 acts of violence and/or harassment that the media has approved of thus far. But you can add another 2 to that list, since in Nevada, a Leftist operative of a Soros-funded organization physically assaulted the female Republican campaign manager for GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt. According to the Daily Wire, this is the nut-job’s second time being arrested for assaulting a Republican woman.
The second would be a small Antifa group in Portland, OR, where I used to live, harassing and verbally accosting a 9/11 widow until a group of counter-protesters, some of whom were larger men than the “man” who accosted the widow, chased the small group away from the woman.
Looking over the rap sheet of acts of violence/harassment, we can see things like: Sen. Susan Collins being sent a letter filled with ricin to her home, a Republican candidate being sucker-punched in a Minnesota restaurant, a FEMALE Republican State Representative being assaulted in Minnesota, a female conservative reporter being threatened with rape by an elderly Leftist man (and feminists defending said man, even though we’re supposed to believe all women), CNN anchor Don Lemon defending the mob that chased Ted Cruz and his family out of a restaurant by saying the mob had the Constitutional right to do that (spoiler alert: they didn’t), and perhaps more prominently, a Leftist protester kicking a pro-life woman.
There are also other things, such as a Leftist attacking a Republican House candidate in Northern California with a switchblade, a Trump supporter being attacked by a punk rocker in one of the rocker’s own shows (and being kept from fighting back by the other attendees), and who could forget the shooting at a Virginia baseball practice that targeted Republicans and sent Rep. Steve Scalise to the hospital?
What many of these incidents have in common is that the Leftist attackers have the confidence to attack or harass someone. But when an equal or greater force meets these Leftists, they deflate like a badly baked soufflé. I’m sure you’ve seen some videos of Leftist thugs getting beaten up by counter-protesters. When things get a little too violent and the Left thinks they can take someone on, if they don’t have some sort of advantage, they completely fall apart and retreat.
Because at that point it’s either that or getting their butts kicked.
But the entire thing exposes these two things about the Left: 1) they are evil, otherwise they would never dare harass or attack someone for a petty reason like a political disagreement and 2) they are cowardly, only daring to take action when they feel they have some sort of advantage, be it a weapon, physical dominance over a woman, or strength in numbers.
Whenever we talk about gun control, the Left will always utter taunts like “why do you need a weapon? Are you just not manly enough?” which is especially rich considering that they heavily scrutinize any man that even remotely appears to do something manly, and considering the fact that many on the Left could easily be considered beta males.
But they utter such a taunt because they want to make gun-owners appear to be cowardly, hiding behind a gun. And yet, it is strictly the Left who uses guns to do a shooting. You will never see a conservative shooting up an establishment with the intention of killing Democrats. That’s something only the Left has been documented to do. Why? Because of the previously-listed reasons: they are evil and cowardly.
The Virginia baseball field shooter was reportedly shouting about healthcare. Instead of trying to win elections, he opted to simply exterminate the Republicans in Congress, or at least as many as he could. That is not only evil, but also massively cowardly.
As are the rest of Antifa and anyone who wants to pretend to fight for something worthwhile on the Left (of which there is nothing). They accost Right-wingers whenever they feel they have some sort of advantage. But at the first sign of equal or greater opposition, they become emasculated and retreat.
Now, if this were a war, that’d be understandable. Only someone with a death-wish would willingly throw themselves into a disadvantage. You attack when you feel you have some sort of advantage, for the most part. However, this is not war (yet) and these are not soldiers fighting for their country.
These are children who failed to grow up, at least mentally and emotionally, and pretend to fight fascism all-the-while employing the exact same tactics the Fascist black-shirts and the Nazi brown-shirts employed to gain power. These are not soldiers fighting the Taliban. These are children fighting law-abiding citizens who disagree with them. People who are simply trying to enjoy a meal, or walk down the street, or express their beliefs.
These are people that think they are expressing their beliefs by acting in the way they do. People who simultaneously deny others their right to free speech if that speech is different from their own.
Earlier, I mentioned Don Lemon saying these mobsters have a Constitutional right to do what they did to Ted Cruz and his family. To quote, here’s what he said: “… But that doesn’t mean that people don’t get to object. That’s your right as an American to object. It’s covered in the First Amendment… In the Constitution, you can protest whenever and wherever you want. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it in a restaurant, that you can’t do it on a football field. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it on a cable news – you can do it wherever you want.”
Aside from being a notorious racist, Don Lemon is also a massive moron. You can protest in public areas, but not in private property. You need the permission of the owner to protest in private property. But beyond arguing against such a stupid argument, let me take a step back here. THESE ARE NOT PROTESTERS! THESE ARE RAGE-FILLED MOBS CHASING PEOPLE OUT OF RESTAURANTS!
A peaceful protester will not accost someone. That goes against the definition of a peaceful protest. To call these people anything other than a mob is asinine. And I find it fascinating that Don Lemon thinks these people have the right to do this, but Ted Cruz and his family don’t have the right to enjoy a meal in a restaurant.
But anyway, that’s mostly just a tangent that I really wanted to cover here just to expose Don Lemon as the piece of crap that he is. A racist, a hypocrite and a massive moron.
Returning to the overall point, it becomes clear to anyone with eyes and a functioning brain that these “protesters” are nothing but a mob. That these people are evil and cowardly, only daring to get violent if they feel they have some sort of advantage.
Again, these are not soldiers. These are very privileged children who have yet to face reality. If there ever is another Civil War in this country, it will be a quick one.

You know you have royally messed up if even the mainstream media won’t defend you and your claims. This is Elizabeth Warren now that she has willingly exposed herself as a fraud, believing that evidence contrary to her claims somehow proved her right.
Here are some headlines Monday morning when the DNA test had just been released, not a lot of people had finished reading it, and the media could have created the narrative in people’s minds that Trump was a racist and was proven wrong by the brilliant and brave Native American woman:
And my personal favorite:
Now, let’s contrast these to some of the headlines that came out after it was made obvious that the DNA test showed a range of 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American ancestry and the analyst didn’t even use Native American DNA in his analysis:
And there are plenty others like these. Keep in mind that it was the Daily Beast who most openly and utterly confirmed Warren’s Native American claims in their previous headline.
Again, you have to royally screw something up to get the media to turn on you if you are a prominent member of the Democrat Party and a figurehead of the “resistance” against Trump.
But all of this still makes sense. While it is still surprising to see the media turn on Warren in this way, which is something we never see with pretty much any other Democrat (except Bill Clinton, and you know you really messed up if you join him in the list of Democrats the media doesn’t want to talk about), it makes sense that Warren’s DNA results draw ire from people.
For decades, she had told the story that one of her ancestors was Cherokee and that her mother was Native American and had to elope with Warren’s father because her grandparents were bigots. All of it has since blown up in what can be considered a nuclear bomb on Warren.
What Warren did in releasing the test results was stupid, but not surprising. She wanted to own Trump, thought the media would back her no matter what, and thoroughly believed the lies she was propagating. She so desperately wanted to score points against Trump, particularly as part of an October Surprise against Republicans this election season, that she forsook reason, logic and facts.
The test very clearly disproved her claims that she was Native American, possibly Cherokee. While she does have some Native blood in her, so does nearly everyone else in the CONTINENT! And that’s ignoring the fact that the DNA test didn’t even use Native American DNA, but a mix of Peruvian, Mexican and Colombian, further suggesting that Warren has even less Native American DNA than the test might show.
But none of these things mattered. It didn’t matter that the test showed she has little more Native American ancestry than your average white person at best and far less than your average white person at worst. It didn’t matter that the person in charge of analyzing her DNA used samples that were not Native American to determine whether she was Native American. She wanted to score some points on Trump, was so blinded by that desire, that she inadvertently scored points against herself.
What she did was the equivalent of throwing a basketball the full length of the court, hoping to score a miracle shot, but somehow managing to get the ball to bounce all the way back and score in her own net.
With the sloppy evidence she had of her ancestry: the “high cheekbones”, the “my great, great, great x150 grandmother was Native American”, the “my parents had to elope because my grandparents were bigots”, and whatever else she had, it was a Hail Mary of a shot to try and prove Native American ancestry. And she failed… miserably… to the point even the MSM, who usually go along with the abandoning of logic, facts and reasoning, didn’t want to try and salvage or defend this train-wreck.
We will have to wait and see if this train-wreck properly derails Elizabeth Warren’s chances at a 2020 run. Despite her not having indicated that she would run, in fact, going as far as to suggest she wouldn’t, I didn’t believe her for one second. But after this week, she might actually be forced to seriously consider not running.
Her having claimed being a Native American for decades would hurt her more than you might think. The Harvard Crimson celebrated Warren as a Native American. Fordham Law Review celebrated Warren as being Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color”, which really tells you something about Harvard Law School, doesn’t it?
She identified as Native American and schools like Harvard Law School and the University of Pennsylvania Law School accepted her as Native American. She BENEFITED from calling herself Native American, given that Harvard is considered a federal contractor, with employment practices falling under Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. In other words, she benefited from affirmative action AS A WHITE PERSON!
This is not something that would sit well with minorities. Claiming to be a minority, particularly to benefit from doing so, is unethical. While the Left usually would not see much problem with this, given that they’ve been backing Warren’s claims for some time now, it would definitely be seen as a problem in any presidential race, and perhaps any future Senate race, now that she has been basically proven to be a liar.
While she is running in 2018, I don’t know if this would lead to her being beaten in a blue state like Massachusetts. But it does raise concerns for her here, at least to some extent. I don’t imagine she would even get her Party’s nomination in 2020 after this, given how much of a failure Clinton was. While Warren may not be a criminal (who knows?), part of the reason Clinton was defeated was because she was such a flawed candidate. This revelation could now mark Warren as a flawed candidate (despite the fact that she’s a socialist, that’s somehow not enough to make her flawed).
Again, you know you messed up big-time if even the media won’t cover for you. That’s almost a death sentence for Democrats.

At first glance, that seems like a very obvious statement to make. Of course the Left doesn’t like it when you call them out. I don’t think there are many people who like it when they are called out on something, be it hypocrisy, idiocy, etc. But why am I particularly talking about this now? Because of a relatively new internet meme (picture above) that has ticked off the Left so much that you can’t even share it on Twitter, lest you get banned for doing it.
What is this meme? It’s called the “NPC” meme. In the video game world, an NPC is Artificial Intelligence. It’s the non-playable characters that you see around you, whether they give you missions, join you in them, or serve to keep you from achieving your goal.
An NPC is programmed by a game’s developer to act in particular ways and to react in particular ways to actions perpetrated either by other NPCs or, usually, by the player.
Given this explanation as to what an NPC is and does, I think we can all make the connection to the Left.
Leftists, particularly on social media, act like NPCs. They utter lines of dialogue that have been implanted there by the media, or academia, or Democrats, etc. When Elizabeth Warren says she’s Native American, these NPCs automatically believe her. When Dr. Ford said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, the NPCs automatically believe her because they are programmed to believe the Leftist over the right-winger. Despite any evidence, and sometimes despite evidence to the contrary, NPCs will continue to believe whatever the Left wants them to believe.
No evidence Trump colluded with Russia? Trump colluded anyway. No evidence Kavanaugh did anything remotely to what the accusers (who have now basically fallen out of the daily news-cycle) are claiming? Kavanaugh is a serial rapist anyway. There is no actual evidence to suggest there is climate change, or at least man-made climate change? We are all gonna fry like eggs.
Beyond absorbing whatever they can get from the Mainstream Media and other Leftist sources, they try to also dish it back out to people, repeating Marxist lines of dialogue such as “capitalism kills people” and “socialism has been proven to work” when there is a myriad of evidence to suggest the exact opposite.
So because this meme so accurately portrays these Leftists, they act in a very NPC way and try to push back against it. Particularly, a Left-wing gaming blog called “Kotaku” published an article titled: “How The ‘NPC’ Meme Tries To Dehumanize ‘SJWs’”.
If there ever was a more NPC title to push back against the meme, I don’t know it. They describe the meme as “anti-progressive” and “dehumanizing” to Leftists, saying that “NPCs have no agency; NPCs don’t think for themselves; NPCs don’t perceive, process, or understand; NPCs arrive at the same worldview not because it’s authentic to their experiences, but automatically. As a descriptor, it suggests that those whom it applies aren’t even human, but are rather, functionally, robots, or clusters of computer code…”
Funny, I don’t remember anyone on the Left saying that it’s dehumanizing to call conservatives on Twitter “Russian bots”.
They can call us “Russian bots” all they want, but that’s completely fine, isn’t it? If it’s dehumanizing to call Leftists “NPCs”, then it’s dehumanizing to call conservatives “Russian bots”.
The difference here is that we (kind of) are joking when we call Leftists “NPCs”. We make fun of their AI-like behavior in relying squarely on information from untrustworthy sources. But whenever they call us “Russian bots”, they (for the most part, at least) don’t appear to be joking. It’s an actual excuse the Left uses to explain the popularity of Trump and/or other conservatives.
I won’t go as far as to say that it’s dehumanizing conservatives (though an argument can be made to suggest it, particularly with the Left’s mob rule as of late. And that’s not to say that the Left doesn’t dehumanize conservatives at all), but it is highly hypocritical for Leftist to whine about this meme, which is intended as a joke by definition, all-the-while chucking up Trump’s popularity to supposed Russian bots.
As far as this NPC meme goes, it’s mostly about being funny while exposing a bit of an unquestionable truth. People on the Left, particularly those who most openly spew communist propaganda nonsense, act very much like this meme depicts them.
They are programmed to act in a certain way and to respond to others in a certain way. Every lie they spew such as “Jesus was a socialist”, “there was a switch at some point that made Republicans racist and Democrats not racist” (which is honestly the most laughable lie of all), and “Trump hates immigrants” is part and parcel of their core programming. They don’t have to present evidence of it. They just have to, at most, point to an MSM source, or a Leftist source altogether to “prove” them right.
And the funny thing is that some top Democrats can be considered NPCs too. After the Parkland shooting back in February of 2018, Bernie Sanders shared data from a Leftist source that said there had been 18 school shootings including Parkland. The data included simple firing of weapons within what can be considered school grounds, even if the shooting didn’t harm or kill anyone.
And because Bernie Sanders is such a popular figure in the Left, other people started to propagate that same lie, not bothering to check the facts that even the Leftist source shares.
Overall, I just find it funny, though not surprising, that Leftists are getting so triggered by this meme that the overlords at Twitter have decided to ban the meme altogether. The meme pretty accurately describes what a Leftist today is: someone who is programmed to act in a certain way and offer certain responses.
Granted, that’s been the behavior of the Left for a while now, but the fact that an internet meme so perfectly describes them in this way is incredibly funny to me both in what the meme itself does and what the Left’s response to the meme has been. As it turns out, NPCs don’t like it when you call them “NPCs”.
I’ll probably be adding “NPC” to my daily vernacular from now on. It’s always good to have more ammo.

Boy, oh, boy. Now, these are some news that I am absolutely delighted to hear. The only thing that could honestly top this sort of thing would be Jesus coming back tomorrow.
Recently, Yascha Mounk, a lecturer on government at Harvard University, wrote an incredible article for The Atlantic. In this piece, he focused on a rather large study from Stephen Hawkins, Daniel Yudkin, Miriam Juan-Torres and Tim Dixon, titled “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape”.
Like I said, it is a long study with around 160 pages. But Mounk focuses on one thing in particular that is noted within the study: most Americans hate political correctness.
According to Mounk: “Among the general population, a full 80 percent believe that ‘political correctness is a problem in our country.’ Even young people are uncomfortable with it, including 74 percent ages 24 to 29, and 79 percent under age 24. On this particular issue, the woke are in a clear minority across all ages. Youth isn’t a good proxy for support of political correctness – and it turns out race isn’t, either. Whites are ever so slightly less likely than average to believe that political correctness is a problem in the country: 79 percent of them share this sentiment. Instead, it is Asians (82 percent), Hispanics (87 percent), and American Indians (88 percent) who are most likely to oppose political correctness.”
Mounk also mentions that 75% of black people consider political correctness to be a problem in this country, which is 4 points less than white people.
Mounk then asks “if age and race do not predict support for political correctness, what does?”
The answer is income and education.
Mounk continues: “While 83 percent of respondents (there were 8,000 total respondents, so quite a large study) who make less than $50,000 dislike political correctness, just 70 percent of those who make more than $100,000 are skeptical about it. And while 87% who have never attended college think that political correctness has grown to be a problem, only 66 percent of those with a postgraduate degree share that sentiment.”
Mounk also details political leanings being a better predictor of views on political correctness, which no one should find surprising.
“Among devoted conservatives, 97 percent believe that political correctness is a problem. Among traditional liberals, 61 percent do. Progressive activists are the only group that strongly backs political correctness: Only 30 percent see it as a problem.”
But perhaps my favorite part of Mounk’s article is this: “Compared with the rest of the (nationally representative) polling sample, progressive activists are much more likely to be rich, highly educated – and white. They are nearly twice as likely as the average to make more than $100,000 a year. They are nearly three times as likely to have a postgraduate degree. And while 12 percent of the overall sample in the study is African American, only 3 percent of progressive activists are. With the exception of the small tribe of devoted conservatives, progressive activists are the most racially homogenous group in the country.”
Hahahaha! Do you know what that means?! The very people that speak out against white privilege are those who actually ENJOY THE SAME WHITE PRIVILEGE THEY CLAIM TO HATE!
Now, there is obviously a lot to cover here. We’ll go little by little.
If 80% of Americans (of the ones polled, of course) think political correctness is a problem, that is absolutely devastating for the Left. I mean, it’s like a nuclear bomb times 100.
I cannot overstate how terrible this has to be for the Left. As they are, they show themselves to be the hateful, bigoted, close-minded people that they pretended they weren’t until Trump showed up. Political correctness is something the Left has been trying to establish for a while now. And if 80% of the country thinks it’s a problem, that is like a dagger to the Left’s monstrous heart.
It shows that what they want is not what the country wants. It really did not come as a surprise to me that those who were less adamant about political correctness being a problem identified themselves as Left-leaning.
Even still, the fact that 61 percent of liberals think the PC culture is a problem speaks volumes. That is a lot more than I expected. But perhaps this is demonstrative of a Democrat voter base that is beginning to wake up and realize the Democrat Party is not what they thought it used to be. I would say that the Democrat Party is not what they used to be, but I knew they were always like this. They’ve only now begun to show their true colors. They didn’t use to be good, they were just less insane and ready to throw their hatred at the slightest of disagreements.
This is really the main thing to take away from all of this. The Left has been utterly FAILING at programming people to think the way they do. Still, the fact that 30% of “progressive activists” see political correctness as a problem is quite interesting. I would’ve thought that number would be in the extremely low percentile.
I know that Mounk says “only 30 percent” do, and comparatively speaking, that would be the correct terminology, but on its own, that number is surprisingly high.
Apart from the fact that most Americans seemingly reject PC culture, another takeaway from this, which really should not come so much as a surprise, is that those who are less likely to find a problem with political correctness are upper class, well-indoctrinated (I’ve decided to change “well-educated” to “well-indoctrinated” because you no longer receive an education in college) and most ironic of all: they are white.
Again, this tells me that the people who most support political correctness are white people who themselves experience the sort of white privilege they supposedly abhor.
As we all know, the Left’s definition of a person with white privilege is someone who is:
The very people that claim to be against white privilege largely fit the description of someone who enjoys white privilege. It’s delightfully ironic and even more-so hypocritical because these people demand that whites compensate black people and minorities in general, but will never actually do the things they want other white people to do.
Bernie Sanders demands Americans act welcoming towards refugees, yet he would never allow for refugees to take shelter in one of his THREE homes.
George Clooney will bash and attack Americans for not being welcoming towards refugees, but will literally move away from his home if his neighborhood starts getting refugees.
It becomes clear to me that political correctness stems largely from people who feel guilty that they were born white. It’s a strange kind of self-inflicted racism that they brandish, but these people are nutty anyway, so perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.
It’s this fundamental belief in white guilt that creates this culture of political correctness where you’re more worried about the Muslim community getting hate for a radical Islamic terrorist attack than the actual frequency of terrorist attacks.
Not to say that Muslims ought to be blamed for an individual faithfully following Sharia Law, but the bigger issue here is terrorism, not a group of people’s feelings.
I honestly feel sorry for people who support political correctness because they feel white guilt. They are made to believe that just because they were born white, that that somehow means they have an unfair advantage over someone not born white. That being white somehow means they should be guilty for what happened in the past (that was entirely perpetrated by Democrats) and that they somehow have to recompense people of color who themselves never were subject to the things Democrats subjected their predecessors to.
White guilt is something that attacks the soul. Something that makes these people feel guilty for being born of a particular skin color. It’s no different from the Left’s history of blatant racism, where someone being born black automatically makes them inferior in the Left’s eyes.
But it seems that the good news is that most people do not actually suffer from white guilt, or at least most people don’t buy into the idea of political correctness.
Again, that’s the big takeaway from all of this. I just wanted to relish in the fact that it’s wealthy white people who try to shame others for being white and wealthy. Like DiCaprio accusing us of destroying the planet when he’s one of the biggest producers of carbon footprint in the world. Ditto for Al Gore.
