Colin Dunn and Luke Kuhn, of DisruptJ20 fame, have been arrested. These men appeared in the Project Veritas videos which we covered here. The DisruptJ20 folks tried to claim that they knew all along that James O’Keefe and crew were up to something, if you’ll remember, from where Honest Answer covered that, too. The police weren’t buying the story from DisruptJ20, and earlier arrested Scott Ryan Charney while looking for Kuhn and Dunn. You can check out this post at PJ Media for more details. You probably won’t see too much info on this from the mainstream media….they just wish the whole story would go away. So do Charney, Kuhn, and Dunn, I’d bet. I’m just sayin’. Below, I’m re-embedding the screen debut of Messrs. Kuhn, Dunn, and Charney.
All of us may as well get used to a new, media-coined phrase that I predict you’ll be seeing a lot of in the coming weeks and months. The phrase is “Deep State”, and it refers to what, a few short weeks ago, we were calling “The Establishment”. Using the term “Deep State” when referring to the corridors of power in D.C. conjures up a darker, more torch-lit and murky image, though, doesn’t it? It also has the effect of making it seem as if the journalist using the phrase has been all along more aware of the situation than you, the great unwashed deplorables. “Deep State” makes all the hack Senators, entrenched Civil Service bureaucrats and the media lackeys who feed off the leaked information take on a more subtly powerful image in the mind; but make no mistake, the power is real.
I’m bringing up the newest journalistic catchphrase because it is the Deep State, Establishment, or whatever you want to call it that is responsible for the trouble in which General Flynn just found himself. At this point, if you haven’t already, you need to read this article by Eli Lake. Read it, because the other links to be found in this post refer to Lake’s piece.
Y’all didn’t think all the Proglodytes in government just folded their tents and stole away in the night just because Hillary lost an election, did you? Those Establishment Proggies, including Republican Senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham are still with us; and more importantly, so is the influence of Ben Rhodes, the fiction-writer-turned-Minister-of-Propaganda for Obama. Ben Rhodes? Oh, yeah, folks. Before tomorrow night’s live show, y’all need to read the Eli Lake article linked above, and this Washington Free Beacon post. From the Free Beacon:
The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed.
The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration’s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.
Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump’s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump’s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January.
While you are informing yourselves, you may also want to look at today’s article at The Washington Times on how the Trump Administration is trying to move forward after Flynn’s resignation. Write all this stuff down on your hand, y’all, so you won’t forget it; because you WILL see this material again on Thursday, when Marty and I can break it all down for you.
The Obamanauts and the Establishment brokers of power ain’t dead, y’all.
Update: Just a few minutes ago, Live Action uploaded three additional videos, which popped into my YouTube feed. See below the first videos that I posted.
I don’t really need to say too much about the videos that I’m embedding below. All I’ll say is that Live Action is exposing Planned Parenthood for exactly what they are.
Below, you’ll find two videos wherein a doctor who has performed abortions describes the procedures. If, like me, you are pro-life, these videos are very, very hard to watch. I dare anyone who is pro-choice to watch these videos, and then come explain to me how you could still support abortion on-demand. Also, explain why I should be okay with allowing my tax dollars to fund the largest abortion provider in the United States. There’s a hook, though….if you want to debate this issue with me, be prepared to hear the arguments against abortion, ’cause I got a lot of ’em. The thing is, though, that I’m not the one who needs convincing. One day, those who support abortion WILL have to explain themselves to the King of Kings.
See what I did there in the headline?
President Donald Trump is known for making wild claims, which the leftist media then goes on to shrilly denounce. It’s getting to be an old story; and, while The Donald is sometimes less than completely articulate in his statements, he’s being proven to more or less get it right. I’m going to give you two examples here, both from stories in The Washington Times.
Remember when President Trump said that millions of illegals voted in the last election, and the howls of outrage by the media? The President was caught in a lie, right? Well, check out this article at TWT. From TWT post:
Just Facts, founded in New Jersey 20 years ago by a Brown-educated mechanical engineer, released its findings as President Trump was setting up a task force on voter fraud headed by Vice President Mike Pence.
“Contrary to the claims of certain major media outlets and fact checkers, a comprehensive analysis of polling data, election records and government investigations shows that many noncitizens vote illegally in U.S. elections,” Just Facts President James D. Agresti told The Washington Times.
A little honest fact-checking goes a long way. The Washington Times isn’t the only outlet to debunk the claims of leftists on the illegal voting issue. You can look here. Or here. Data that supports the President’s claim is actually pretty easy to find, if one looks.
Just last week, the Trump Administration was in a feud with the 9th Circuit, where a judge maintained that the Executive Order restricting immigration from 7 countries was unconstitutional, partly because, in a judge’s mind, no citizens from the listed nations had ever been convicted of terrorist acts in the US. In this post from The Washington Times, the 9th Circuit judge is proven wrong. From TWT post:
“How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” the judge demanded of the Justice Department lawyer.
When she said she was unaware, Judge Robart went on: “Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell. So, I mean, you’re here arguing on behalf of someone that says ‘We have to protect the United States from these individuals coming from these countries,’ and there’s no support for that.”
Pretty damning, right? It would be, if the judge were correct. More from TWT:
Jessica Vaughan, the author of the CIS report, said the judges could have found the information “if they or their clerks had looked for it.” She said the judges easily could have remembered the Ohio State attack in November 2016, when a Somalian who arrived as a refugee in 2007 used his car and a knife to injure 13 people before he was killed by a police officer.
Rep. Lou Barletta, Pennsylvania Republican, said the appeals court judges got it backwards. They said they were able to go beyond the president’s executive order to look at his campaign rhetoric calling for a “Muslim ban,” but didn’t think to research the terrorist connections from the countries in question.
“Since the court decided that it has the authority to look at the reasons behind a presidential executive order, the least the judges could do is perform a simple Google search,” he said.
There’s more to be found at the link.
Well, it seems like a little searching can prove Leftist claims to be wrong, and the President to be mostly right, articulate or not. Write this down on your hand, folks. You will see this material again.
Seriously, y’all, I hope you contacted L.L. Bean and ordered those waterproof shoes, ’cause we’re gonna be wading through a lot of liberal tears for a while. Right now, the salt-water level is rising, because the unelected bureaucrats in the Washington alphabet agencies are crying today. Hard. To see what I’m talking about, you may want to look at this article at Politico. From the Politico post:
Joe Pizarchik spent more than seven years working on a regulation to protect streams from mountaintop removal coal mining.
It took Congress 25 hours to kill it.The rule is just one of dozens enacted in the final months of the Obama administration that congressional Republicans have begun erasing under a once-obscure law — much to the dismay of agency staffers who hauled those regulations through the long process to implementation.
“My biggest disappointment is a majority in Congress ignored the will of the people,” said Pizarchik, who directed the Interior Department’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement from 2009 through January. “They ignored the interests of the people in coal country, they ignored the law and they put corporate money ahead of all that.”
Bless his heart. Have a tissue, Joe, while we direct your attention to the fact that bureaucrats, who are not elected by the people, aren’t supposed to make laws. More, from Politico:
“It’s devastating, of course,” said Alexandra Teitz, a longtime Democratic Hill aide who joined Interior’s Bureau of Land Management in 2014 as a counselor to the agency’s director and worked on a rule to curb methane waste from oil and gas production. A House-passed Congressional Review Act resolution targeting that rule awaits action in the Senate.
Pizarchik and other former Obama administration officials called the rapid repeal process intensely unfair. The 1996 law says any repeal must come within 60 legislative days after a rule becomes final.
“If there had been more time and Congress had not rushed this through but had actually deliberated on what was in the rule, [then] the results would have been different,” Pizarchik said.
I believe that the will of the people has been expressed, ever since 2010, by electing Republicans who all swear that they believe in small government; in Congress, the Senate, in State legislatures and Governor’s races all across the country, and now in a Presidential election. It should be pretty clear that the people desire the dismantling of the regulatory State, and a reduction in the power of bureaucrats.
Those waterproof shoes will be very handy if y’all happen to be anywhere near Former President Barack Obama. He’s got to be pissed that all of those “midnight regulations” are getting rolled back so quickly, and with so little effort from Congress.
It’s Friday Fun Time! I’ve gathered together a brief list of posts from around the web which demonstrate just how cray-cray our Leftist friends and neighbors are these days. Enjoy.
On last night’s live show, Marty played some audio from SC Senator Tim Scott wherein Sen. Scott read aloud some of the very racist tweets that he’s received from supposedly unracist Democrats. Check out the video over at this post from The Washington Times.
Parents having choices in where to send their children to school is a terrible, no-good, really bad thing, according to some Democrats, y’all. In this post from PJ Media, you’ll see just exactly how unhinged Progressives are over the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary. Somebody needs a time-out, is all I’m sayin’.
Vogue magazine put out a cover showing how diverse their models are, but of course they ain’t diverse enough for the Social Justice Warriors, who took to Twitter to denounce Vogue. Thank goodness Twitchy was there to record the insanity, as well as the delicious trolling of the SJW’s by the more sane tweeters.
Although trolling the SJW’s is definitely great fun, sometimes the Loony Left steps up and trolls themselves. Powerline recorded some of the self-trolling on their website. Really, folks, you can’t make this stuff up, I swear.
Finally, I’m posting the embedded Rebel Media video by David Menzies. I like the work of Mr. Menzies a lot. His clear-eyed analysis is always accompanied by a dose of humor, and never fails to enlighten us. I hope y’all like this one, too.
That’s right, y’all. After much bitter dispute from Democrats, President Donald Trump’s nominee for Attorney General finally took his oath of office this morning at the White House. Last night, Sessions spoke to the Senate after the votes were counted, confirming him as US AG.
Sessions is a good man, who has done an excellent job for his home state of Alabama. He’s going to be a great Attorney General, too. This morning, after the swearing in, the President made a few remarks.
I won’t keep you wondering about where the headline came from. Watch the latest video from Live Action, exposing Planned Parenthood for what they really are. Sick. Truly Sick, y’all.
As I’m sure you’re aware, Vice President Mike Pence had to go to the Senate today and cast a tie-breaking vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. Senate Democrats stayed up all night trying to delay the vote for as long as possible, for reasons that are…well…either unclear or incredibly stupid. Either works for me.
Remember how, for all these past eight years, Conservatives have been told by the Progressives that we were on “the wrong side of history”? From the PJ Media article:
WASHINGTON — After an all-night marathon by Senate Dems holding the floor to protest the nomination of school-choice advocate Betsy DeVos, Vice President Mike Pence was brought in to break a Senate tie and confirm President Trump’s pick.
It was the first time the Senate historian could remember a vice president needing to break a tie on a cabinet confirmation. (emphasis mine)
Mike Pence just made history, and it looks like Chuck Schumer’d Democrat minority and two Republican Senators were on the wrong side of it. I’m just sayin’.
…because Miss Southern is echoing exactly what Marty and I were talking about on last night’s live show. Although our side of the political argument must abstain from violence to support our rhetoric, it may be time to think about being able to defend ourselves when we are physically attacked. There is nothing to be accomplished by allowing ourselves to be beaten senseless, literally, just because we hold certain opinions. Sometimes, as our forefathers knew well, certain freedoms are worth protecting.
I’m not just referring to freedom of speech, here. Everyone in America should feel free to assemble wherever we like, and to TRAVEL IN SAFETY to our destinations. If a local municipality or campus security force has no intention of providing that safety, we may have to do it, ourselves. That’s all I’m sayin’. I’ll let Miss Southern speak further on the topic. Watch the short video embedded below.
