THE DEMOCRATS ARE LIVING IN BIZARRO WORLD

Remember when people used to complain about there being no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans? Is anyone still saying that now? It’s not just like comparing apples and oranges, it’s like the difference between Goofus and Gallant. Or Superman and Bizarro World Superman.

To start with, Minneapolis, like other big, longtime one-party Democrat cities, has suffered widespread riots, arson and looting and destruction of public statues and monuments by people who seem to thank that if you smash historic monuments, you change history (or as I call that, “Taliban logic.”) Their Goofus response: on Friday, the Minneapolis city council (which has not one single Republican) voted unanimously to abolish the police department. Some residents who vowed not to call the police and were immediately inundated with hundreds of homeless people and their various drug dealers and other problems could probably tell you where this is going to lead.

A local business owner whose bookstore was destroyed by arson said there are legitimate problems with the police, “but the way the politicians are going about it is just ridiculous. They are pandering to a certain segment of the public.” He said he won’t reopen his store if city leaders push through a “sufficiently stupid” plan. I feel confident that the one and only way in which the Minneapolis city council will exceed expectations is in the field of stupidity.

Fortunately, the city council doesn’t have the power to abolish the police force unless the citizens vote for it in November. Let’s hope they’re now undergone enough of the traditional process for clearing up one’s thinking (“A conservative is a liberal who got mugged”) to vote to abolish the current city council instead.

On the other side, President Trump’s Gallant response to the unrest was to sign an executive order requiring enforcement of federal laws against vandalizing public monuments and government property, providing assistance for protecting it, and withholding federal support and grants from local authorities who fail to do their jobs and protect it.

Trump has also taken measures to declare the violent radical left group Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization, and his DOJ is reportedly already conducting dozens of investigations of their organizers. Meanwhile, Democratic Rep. Jerrod Nadler (Goofus, NY) stood up in the House and declared Antifa to be “imaginary.” That’s right: the same guy who wasted many months and untold tax dollars to impeach the President over nonexistent crimes, and who has spent years pushing a Russian collusion hoax, believes that it’s Antifa that’s imaginary.

At that link, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan disabuses Rep. Nadler of his delusions, and at this link, so does a former Antifa member, who was quite surprised to learn that all the rocks he threw through windows were actually part of a quilting circle.

Rep. Nadler might also want to check out this video and ask himself, “If Antifa is imaginary, who sprayed that extremist graffiti, shoemaker’s elves?”

Senate Republicans offered up a serious police reform bill similar to but not as radical as the one from House Democrats. It was largely crafted by Sen. Tim Scott, one of the few black Senators and someone who’s had personal experience with racial profiling. Democrats, who claimed to care so much about black people that a bill had to be passed by July 4th, filibustered the Senate bill to kill it so it couldn’t even open up for changes and amendments, then insulted Republicans using racially charged terms such as “token.” Here was Sen. Scott’s response:

He also called Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to blame Republicans for the murder of George Floyd outrageous and sinful.

Meanwhile, back in Goofus Town, Speaker Pelosi claimed that only the Democratic House bill is worthy of “George Kirby’s name.” FYI: George Floyd was killed by a police officer in solidly Democratic Minneapolis. George Kirby was a gifted comedian and impressionist, best known for the 1970s TV show, “The Kopykats,” with fellow mimics Rich Little and Frank Gorshin. He was black, though, so she got that part right.

And while Democrats claim to be displaying their deep concern for black people by tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln, the Republican who freed the slaves from their Democrat masters, the far-left California legislature just voted to put a measure on the ballot to rescind the state constitutional amendment barring discrimination based on race, gender or national origin. They claim this is good because it will allow them to impose race-based discrimination they approve of, so that the state can openly judge people by the color of their skin, not the content of their character. Since this is California, I won’t call that “Goofus” thinking. Let’s just call it Goofy.

A PARTY OF STARK-RAVING LUNATICS

If you’re getting demoralized by all the polls showing Joe Biden winning in a landslide, don’t be. That’s the whole point of them. I’ll remind you that at this point in 2016, Hillary was supposedly ahead by 13 points, and I got plenty of eye rolls when I predicted that Trump would win. But if you wonder whether the majority of your fellow Americans have really gone crazy, then this might cheer you up a little.

Reporter Brian Cates reminds us of a number of important factors that the poll takers fail to take into account, such as state organization, ground game and campaign war chests. But the most important one of all is this:

“The Democratic party has openly turned into a party of stark raving lunatics.”

To be fair, I don’t know if the Party leaders are lunatics, or if they’re just pandering to lunatics, but neither one is a very convincing argument for giving them power over your life, your job, your business, your home and your family.

JUDGE SHOULD BLAME HIMSELF, NOT AG BARR OR THE PRESIDENT

An interesting observation from liberal law professor Jonathan Turley: Michael Flynn’s judge would obviously love nothing better than to railroad him into prison, but it was a blunder the judge himself made that made it possible for Flynn’s attorneys to finally turn the tables on the prosecutors and get the charges dropped.

DEMOCRATS KICK INTO THE PANDERING GEAR

You can tell the election is drawing near when, after two years of doing nothing but trying to impeach the President, House Democrats are suddenly passing legislation. It’s legislation like a police reform bill that they know the Senate will never pass, and a doomed DC statehood bill that’s been on their wish list for ages and they also know the Senate will never pass. I guess they figure if you do it fast enough, furious pandering can look like actual progress.

    Mike, thank you for your refreshing yet realistic perspective on why you think Trump will win this year!

    Do you think he can win this time not just by the Electoral College but the popular vote, too? Just like George W. Bush did in 2004 four years after losing the popular vote?

    Let's hope so, I really don't want to listen to more angry sobs against the Electoral College for another four years!

    I agree that Dems are living in a Bizarro world and have no business holding power. That said, Biden is leading the President in the polls. I wish the President would clearly focus on his priorities for a second term, completely recount his actions to deal with COVID (he has a good story to tell), cite his actions in response to the violence and George Floyd's death, and define Biden and the left. If he can do that, he wins. If his message is muddled or modified by a biased press, he loses.

    Mr. Mike,

    Sir, I lived in the so-called Twin Cities back in the 1980s and realized Minnesota was the U.S.s concession to Marxism. It was our first Communist Country (State). The shenanigans in progress is NO surprise to me. I hope they enjoy the fruits of their politics.

    The Marxist-Pander-Party will try anything to remove Trump. I assume they think the majority of the Citizens are so stupid they will not notice what they are doing. The sad truth is, they may be correct!!! I felt so sorry for Nancy not being able to get off of her knees - NOT. Wonder when she prayed last?

    Deo Vindice!!!

    This whole situation in Minneapolis is just mind-boggling. When your house is burglarized with you inside, (it's Minneapolis- they don't care whether you're there or not) you are raped, beaten, shot or stabbed and within an inch of dying and call 911 who are they going to send? Perhaps a college-educated social worker who might arive while your deceased body begins to assume room temperature. If you live in Minneapolis, if you don't have forearms now would be a great time to buy one and get trained to use it, because you're probably going to need it if you stay there.

    Black Lives Matter Group Storms Beverly Hills Residential Area: ‘Eat The Rich!’ ‘Abolish Capitalism Now!’
    By Daily Wire News

    Law enforcement officials had to respond to a large group of Black Lives Matters activists late on Friday night that stormed a Beverly Hills residential neighborhood chanting “Eat the rich!” and “Abolish capitalism now!”

    The Beverly Hills Police Department tweeted: “The unlawful assembly in the area of Rexford Dr & Carmelita Ave has ended with arrests being made. Protesters have now left the City.”


    Videos and photographs of the mob flooded social media as they shouted various messages throughout the residential neighborhood and tore down American flags.

    Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong compiled video highlights from the demonstrators on his Twitter account, noting that the group marched through residential neighborhoods in Beverly Hills shouting “Eat the rich1” and “Abolish capitalism now!” (posts below).

    “The Black Lives Matter mob shut down Santa Monica Boulevard, Rodeo Drive, and intersections around the city center,” wrote Cheong. At one point the group “seized a privately owned American flag in a residential suburb, shredding it and pulling it down.” In the residential areas, video shows, the group played “loud music and blocked the streets.”

    “The police showed up in full force to arrest members of the Black Lives Matter mob making a nuisance of themselves across residential Los Angeles streets,” Cheong captions one post with video of police arresting members of the group. “One pretended to be injured by the police and forced them to drag him.”

    Well Black Lives Matter and Leftists and Democrats andAanarchists better watch out , they have now have Elitists and Rich Backers most likely cancelling their contributions and backing.

    Well Pelosi and Basement Joe and AOC and the squad, you are now on the
    non-contribution list.

    Remember when we were young - people who loved controlling everything, always insisted that there was "too much violence on television". Warning signs had to be invented. Violence! Something "they" wanted to control at all costs. Now? "They" ARE the violence on television.

    Three Stooges:
    Nancy Pelosi – Best described as demented, i.e. driven to behave irrationally due to anger, distress, or excitement.
    Adam Schiff – Best described as a sleazeball, i.e. a disreputable, disgusting, and despicable person. Excels in falsehoods.
    Jerry Nadler – Best described as intellectually compromised, i.e. lacks ability to comprehend the essence of what he espouses.
    This is in no way intended as an insult to Moe, Larry, and Curly who gave their listeners many hours of delightful comedy reliving the many drudges faced along the way, not creating them!
    As I reflect on these three untrustworthy characters, I wonder if they are not a product of Pleasure Island. You know, the place of Pinocchio’s ill fate, the place where unrestrained youngsters were reformed as Donkeys.

    P.S. my husband, who has worked his entire life, lost his job permanently due to the pandemic. He was a vice president of sales for a home health company… Think about that! Our governor of Kentucky is out of control and I’ve contacted our state legislators and they aren’t being heard by media nor will the governor listen. It is sad that we have a Republican attorney general and House and Senate but they are paralyzed due to a law passed in 1998 by Kentucky Democrats they give executive powers to the governor that he has abused. We also do not have a recall option of this governor and that is infuriating. They cannot do anything until January and it has driven me to i’ve contacted our state legislators and they aren’t being heard by media nor will the governor listen.

    I so wanted the Lord to allow you to be our president but I am thankful that at least you and the POTUS had/have identical platforms. I am respectfully asking that you now provide for Americans ways and solutions to get the attention of our elected officials & media to keep our streets safe, thugs in JAIL, & to be strong & courageous like Joshua, and/or to be held accountable if they do not do so. Americans are SICK of talk from all Talking Heads & politicians. We need to take action & Americans who are afraid need people like you encouraging us to take action. IVE DONE MY PART & WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO! PLEASE

    Lost in the fine print news from the FBI---
    According to court documents, while employed as a police officer with Veterans Affairs in Bay Pines, Florida, Nicholson instructed an Army veteran to leave the premises, and the veteran complied. Nicholson then followed the veteran outside and arrested him. In doing so, Nicholson swung the veteran around, and placed both of the veteran’s hands behind his back. The veteran did not resist the arrest and moved his left arm behind his back on his own. After the veteran was already handcuffed and in custody, Nicholson rammed the veteran’s head on the fence. Nicholson then used his right hand to pull the veteran’s legs apart, causing the veteran to fall face first into the fence and then to the ground. Nicholson then forcefully grabbed the veteran from the ground, and lifted him up. While lifting him up, Nicholson used his right hand to grab the veteran from his face and nose.----This person got 24 MONTHS in jail.

    The next FBI blog news was of a person who allegedly published on-line hate mail about Hispanics---this person got 5 YEARS in jail---
    The VA officer assaulted a Vet, and by chance-didn't kill him with a knee on the neck--24 MONTHS
    The internet dude didn't commit any violence, but he might have proposed such(that "proposal" is essentially free speech) - the FBI would have done well to keep an eye on this person, but 5 years?
    This is a perfect example of why the American Citizens do NOT trust the Justice system---5 years for hurling epithets, but 24 months for assault.---my take on this would be 24 YEARS
