If you still lend any credence to John Bolton’s Trump-bashing book, here’s an opposing viewpoint from someone who should know. It’s an excerpt from another forthcoming book by a White House insider who describes Bolton as “a classic case of a senior White House official drunk on power, who had forgotten that nobody elected him to anything. Often Bolton acted like he was the President, pushing an agenda contrary to President Trump’s.”
It also includes a jaw-dropping anecdote to illustrate how arrogant Bolton was toward fellow Trump staffers, even his superiors. And I absolutely trust this source because I’m her father:
AOC PRIMARY DAY
I doubt that I have many readers in New York’s 14th Congressional District (The Bronx), but just in case there are any, I offer this as a public service:
Today is the Democratic primary, where you have the golden opportunity to do both America and yourselves a tremendous favor by voting for Michelle Caruso Cabrera over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Two years ago, the little-known socialist underdog pulled a fast one on you, using well-organized leftist activists to yank the nomination away from 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley, whom most voters thought was so safe that they didn’t pay attention or bother to show up. That allowed AOC to take the nomination, and thus the solid blue House seat, with just 15,897 votes in a District with a population of over 706,000.
Since that time, she has become, along with her fellow “Squad” members, one of the most notoriously radical and divisive voices in the House, a rigid socialist ideologue who can’t even get along with her own party, much less the Republicans. She wants to abolish immigration enforcement and pass Medicare For All and the “Green New Deal” (her socialist takeover plan thinly disguised as an environmental bill.) She was the only Democrat to vote against the Payroll Protection Plan because it didn’t include enough deficit spending and government expansion. Her occasional pronouncements on economics make one want to abolish the Boston University economics program that gave her a degree. She seems to think capitalism exists solely to screw over the workers, so she celebrated when she helped drive Amazon out of your District, where it had planned to create 25,000 new jobs. Her most recent childish pronouncement was to cheer teenagers for committing fraud to interfere with the election.
The limousine liberal elites love her for her good looks, fashion sense and huge social media following, but she is so obsessed with being a social media star and the celebrity face of socialism to America that she's apparently forgotten she’s supposed to be representing your interests. Why should she, when she has over $6 million to spend on her reelection campaign, much of it donated by rich socialists who don’t even live in your district (that’s another problem with socialism: only the very rich can afford it.)
I doubt that I agree with her challenger on much of anything, but she least seems to be a reasonable moderate Democrat who’s capable of working with others and has the good of the people of her District as her #1 priority, not becoming the Inside-the-Beltway Eva Peron. I understand you might be worried about throwing AOC out of work, since she has no marketable skills and the bar where she used to work was driven out of business by policies she supports. But never fear: I’m sure the producers of “The View” are already poised with phones in hand to make her an offer. All you have to do to get her into a far more suitable career is to show up at the polls this time.
MORE ON TULSA
There’s a lot of jawboning going on about the crowd size at President Trump’s Tulsa rally. Despite reports of over a million ticket requests, the venue was only about two-thirds full. Democrats are crowing over that, but Trump says the media scared people away from bringing their families by spending a whole week pushing scare stories about it being a coronavirus superspreader event, and the potential for violence with all the protesters planning to target it. Indeed, protesters did show up and try to block the entry, and had to be forcibly dispersed. All the conflict outside forced the cancellation of planned outdoor speeches by Trump and Mike Pence.
But the media and Democrats are trying to take credit for the lower-than-expected turnout by claiming that it was the result of a social media prank campaign by teenagers using the Chinese-created app Tik-Tok to register for free tickets with no intention of showing up. Here’s Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez displaying her own level of maturity by using her Twitter account to congratulate and encourage kids to commit fraud to interfere with a US presidential election, which is the same charge that got Nixon dirty trickster Donald Segretti four months in federal prison.
There’s also some discussion at this link about how it could be actionable in court, so you parents might want to confiscate your kids’ cell phones and find out what they’ve been doing with them before the authorities show up at your door.
Fortunately for AOC, she probably won’t have to worry about any repercussions due to the recently established legal precedent that if you’re far enough to the left, no laws apply to you.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale dismissed the impact of the Brat Pack, saying that they have methods for weeding out fake ticket requests, and they discarded thousands beforehand. Besides, there are no reserved seats; it’s first come-first served, so any no-shows would normally have their seats filled by someone else. So the campaign blames the media and the mob’s intimidation tactics for scaring people out of attending
Two points worth noting when you’re deciding who to vote for in November:
1. Top Democrats are now endorsing and even celebrating the threat of violence to intimidate people into giving up their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and assembly. My standard rule of thumb is that if someone has to silence the opposition to win a debate, then he must not have much of an argument in his favor. As one writer put it, AOC admitted that Democrats have to lie to beat Trump.
2. Thanks to those who pulled this dirty trick, and to AOC, we now know that not only would voting by mail or Internet open the floodgates of election fraud, but top Democrats would not only be fine with that, they'd cheer it on.
This is why I would never want to silence the opposition. Every time they open their mouths, they make my case for me.
CANCEL CULTURE UPDATE!
Today’s whitewashing (am I still allowed to use that word?) of history and Western culture is the demand that we change the offensive racist name of…(sticks finger in encyclopedia)… Penny Lane, the street immortalized in the sweetly nostalgic Beatles song! Why? Well, uh...because it’s named after someone linked to the slave trade! Except it’s actually not. But why bother with a lot of pesky historical facts when you can BUUUURN THEM!!!
Bonus: Remember when Popular Mechanics was a treasured part of post-War culture, teaching Americans how to do all sorts of cool do-it-yourself projects? Well, now they’re giving readers tips on how to vandalize and topple public statues. This follows an earlier article on how to spot police surveillance tools so they can't track you at protests (or while looting, I assume.) This rag is no longer popular in my house.
TWO DIVERGENT VIEWS
Two Divergent Views, Both Worth Reading: The ever-blunt Kurt Schlichter details the many, many battlefields upon which the left has declared war against your Constitutional rights.
Meanwhile, John Nolte at Breitbart contrasts the free, tolerant, live-and-let-live attitude that still reigns supreme in rural and small town America, where people of all races and backgrounds get along fine – possibly because, unlike people in big Democrat-run cities, they don’t watch 24-hour “news” channels or listen to people who get their power from sowing division, and they have real jobs to get done. In other words, shows on HGTV like "Home Town" (Laurel, Mississippi) and "Fixer Upper" (Waco, Texas) give a far more accurate view of most of America than anything you'll see on CNN or MSNBC.
I agree with almost everything Nolte says (much of it was in my book, “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.”) But I have to disagree on one thing, which is the point Kurt Schlichter made. Americans outside of the leftist bubbles can’t just ignore them and go on with their lives because the leftists refuse to ignore us. They’re coming for us whether we want to play or not. More than anything on Earth, the left lusts for power, to impose its agenda on others through government force. When the cities get big enough and blue enough, the minute they dominate the legislatures by even one vote, they quickly begin stripping away the rights that rural people cherish. Just look at Illinois, New York, California, Colorado or Virginia. Aside from secession petitions, rural folks are left with no choice but to flee to saner pastures, leaving the leftist nuts even more firmly in charge.
My advice to them would be to make your stand in the next election. You can overthrow your oppressors if you show up at the polls in 100% turnout numbers. The good news is that if the Democrats pass vote-by-mail and do away with voter ID, all your cows, pigs and chickens will be able to vote, too.
ADVENTURES IN GASLIGHTING
If you dare to say “All lives matter” instead of “Black lives matter,” you may be set upon by the Twitter mob, scorned as a racist and white supremacist, and even lose your job, depending on how far-left or cowardly your employer is. You’d think that believing that “all lives matter” was some kind of crazy fringe belief. Well, here’s a refreshing swig of reality.
In a Rasmussen survey of 1,000 voters, Americans preferred the slogan “All lives matter” over “Black lives matter” by 2-1. “All lives matter” was also preferred by 61% of minorities who were neither black nor white. Even black people preferred “All lives matter,” by 47-44%, and Democrats were about evenly split, 48-46% (ALM-BLM.) The only groups that strongly preferred “Black lives matter” were self-described liberals, Trump haters and wealthy people. So that would explain why people in Silicon Valley and the mainstream media think that everyone prefers “Black lives matter.”
