CHECK THIS OUT
We’re all used to Joe Biden blurting out weird comments when he’s off the Teleprompter, but how do you explain his campaign website (which, surely, someone proofread) listing this as a rationale for more gun control laws?
“Federal law prevents hunters from hunting migratory game birds with more than three shells in their shotguns. That means our federal law does more to protect ducks than children.”
Uh, pardon me, but…what?! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that federal law bans the hunting of children under all circumstances, which means it protects kids more than ducks.
This is especially bizarre when you consider that the same candidate also opposes any limits on abortion, which is the only federal-sanctioned, legal method of murdering children.
Some prominent Catholic leaders are beginning to wonder if the answer to the old question “Is the Pope Catholic?” is really so obvious anymore.
PLOT AGAINST BIDEN
Authorities have arrested a 19-year-old male in North Carolina who reportedly had a van filled with cash, an AR-15, bomb-making materials and night vision goggles, and who was plotting to kill Joe Biden. PJ Media points out that in relating this story, it took the Washington Post 15 paragraphs to get around to mentioning that this alleged murderous nut is a Bernie Sanders supporter who somehow thought that killing Biden would help Bernie.
IGNORANCE AND ARROGANCE
It’s long been said that the most annoying combination of character traits is ignorance and arrogance. I think we have a perfect new illustration of it: the smug liberals who heard President Trump say that coyotes were bringing children across the border and immediately took to Twitter to mock that moron Trump for actually thinking that a four-legged wild canine could carry a human across the border.
FYI: A “coyote” is a criminal who makes money by sneaking people across the border. It’s also an animal in Looney Tunes cartoons that thinks he’s a super genius even though everything he does blows up in his face.
"GET WOKE, GO BROKE" NEWS
David Barrett, CEO of the expense reporting software company Expensify, was so filled with fear and loathing at the idea of President Trump being reelected that he sent an email to 10 million people at 100,000 client businesses. It claimed that Trump wants to suppress people's votes, there will be a civil war if Trump wins and democracy won’t survive.
That may be the most expensive stupid decision a company has made since the major sports leagues went all-in for BLM. Many clients wrote back to complain or cancel their business, furious over both the partisan politics and the abuse of the email addresses that were entrusted to Expensify for purely business purposes. Some also corrected Barrett on his overheated assertions, pointing out that the US is not a democracy, preventing voter fraud is not “voter suppression,” and the only people threatening mob violence if Trump wins are on his side.
This is another excellent article that examines this story in greater depth. At the end is a handy list of links to the latest news about voter fraud in all 50 states, for those who keep repeating the mantra that “voter fraud doesn’t exist.”
And here’s just a general national round-up of “This Week In Voter Fraud.”
UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS FALL
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that new unemployment claims fell to 787,000 last week, a drop of 111,000 from the previous week, and the lowest since the pandemic economic shutdown began in March. Economists expected the number to be around 875,000.
Third-quarter economic growth numbers will be released five days before the election and are expected to show a huge leap of over 30%, the largest ever, due to the strong economy reopening, at least in places where the politicians will allow people to come out of their basements and go to work before Election Day. This should be great news for America and for President Trump, but CNBC perfectly summed up the way the media will treat it in a story quoting an economist who called the huge GDP jump “totally meaningless” (was he one of the expert economists who overestimated unemployment claims by 111,000?)
The gloom-spinning CNBC story was headlined, “The GDP report next week will likely show record-breaking economic growth, but it may not help Trump.” I think we have a new contender for “Most Typical Liberal Media Headline” to rival the classic, “World to End at 6 p.m.; Women and Minorities Hardest Hit.”
Facebook has apologized for blocking an obviously humorous fake news story from the conservative satire site The Babylon Bee, saying it was a mistake. Their excuse: “Satire can be difficult for our systems to identify.”
That’s fine, except it wasn't just Facebook’s “systems.” After the initial ban, the Bee requested a manual review, and Facebook stuck by the ban. They claimed the story “incited violence.” The story claimed that Sen. Mazie Hirono demanded that Amy Coney Barrett be weighed to see if she weighs the same as a duck so she could be burned as a witch. It's clearly a comedy bit straight out of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
I don't know what's hardest to believe: that this wasn’t deliberate partisan censorship, that Facebook’s systems didn’t recognize that as satire, or that tech nerds who work at Facebook have never seen “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
HOLLYWOOD CONSERVATIVES DO EXIST
Chris Pratt, star of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, is under fire online because he did not attend a Joe Biden fundraiser hosted by many of his limousine leftist co-stars from the Marvel “Avengers” movie series. Pratt is an unapologetic Christian, supporter of veterans and all-around nice guy, and he didn’t even make any political statements at all. But just because he didn’t fall in line and mouth the required leftist sentiments and raise money for the anointed Democrat, he was savaged on Twitter as a racist, hater, white supremacist, blah-blah-blah, you know all the garbage cliches by now.
A big salute to him for refusing to cave, and to his co-star Robert Downey Jr., who had the courage (or maybe just the fame and massive fortune) to defend his friend online from the baseless attacks by the shrieking leftist Twitter mob.
Also, a big salute to Scott Baio, one of Hollywood’s few outspoken conservatives (definitely check out his podcasts on YouTube), who didn’t participate in a “Happy Days” cast reunion fundraiser for Biden. Baio was incensed that a show with such a nostalgic, all-American image would back a candidate and party that have aligned themselves with America-hating factions such as BLM, Antifa and other radicals. He was especially upset that it was held in Wisconsin, the setting for the show but also the site of recent riots and looting that Biden declined to condemn.
These stories have given me an idea for a project we’ll be working on and that you will see soon. Many conservatives are fed up with the leftist propaganda coming out of Hollywood and the war on Christians, conservatives and Trump voters. You often see their comments online about not paying to see a movie in X number of years.
But we all enjoy good entertainment, and there are still some entertainers brave enough to voice their conservative views. They know this can result in blacklisting, online attacks and even former friends and colleagues publicly denouncing them (look at how Kirstie Alley has been savaged just for saying she’s voting for Trump.) Instead of simply boycotting leftist entertainment, conservatives should support these brave entertainers and show Hollywood that they are losing out on a vast market by making nothing but music, movies and TV shows that appeal to AOC and the Chinese government.
So my staff and I are starting to compile a Conservative Entertainment Holiday Gift Guide. We’re looking for music and comedy CDs and movies and comedy performances on DVD by fellow conservatives, who often have to work outside the Hollywood system, financing their own projects. There are many excellent albums and shows that you and your family would love, and the stars and creators deserve our support. Many have been guests on my TBN show.
Be looking for our Conservative Entertainment Holiday Gift Guide to appear soon, so you’ll have plenty of time to do your shopping and go into 2021 with some great entertainment other than Turner Classic Movies.
