News of the Day

Two events of note today:

First, and most important (to ME anyway), today marks 22 years I’ve officially been a pain in my wife’s backside. She gets looks of sympathy from everybody from my family to the checkout people at Walmart. I sit on a scooter at the end of the checkout as she’s paying for her purchases and crack wise. The looks of pity she gets from total strangers are priceless.

Second, today is the day the DNC chooses the next socialist to send the party farther into the wilderness. The choices are Tom Perez, a friend of the Clintons, Joe Biden, and Eric Holder, OR Keith Ellison, the anti-Semitic, hard-left, community-organizing Muslim who is backed by Bernie Sanders, Upchuck Schumer, and the rest of the usual suspects. It matters not a whit who they choose because their message of violence, intolerance, and total government control will never change.

Michael Moore endorses Ellison for DNC chair: Party needs ‘fresh blood’
Moore went on to lay out why he believes Ellison is the best suited to lead the DNC.“He’s from the Midwest,” Moore said. “Before he was a congressman in Minnesota, he helped turn Minnesota from what was then a red state into a blue state. He did political neighborhood organizing in the state of Minnesota. We need an organizer who is going to bring people out and turn this party around.”

The Case for Tom Perez Makes No Sense
His supporters say he’s just as progressive as Keith Ellison. So why bother fielding him at all?  Ellison has captured the support of the left wing. Ellison backed Sanders early in his primary race against Hillary Clinton, and was one of the first candidates to announce his bid for DNC chair. The Hill reports, “Perez supporters have expressed concern about handing the party over to the Sanders wing of the party, arguing that Ellison would move the party too far to the left.” And the New York Times suggests that Democratic leaders pushed Perez to run because they viewed Ellison as too close to the Sanders wing.

The Sanders vs. Clinton schism in the Democratic party isn’t going away

Keith Ellison is the progressive choice being supported by Sanders himself. As Ed noted yesterday, Ellison is already taking a far left line, pushing for impeachment of President Trump (who has also offered a semi-endorsement of Ellison). But moderates in the party don’t like Ellison much.
Case in point, today Alan Dershowitz wrote a piece for the Hill threatening to leave the party if Ellison becomes chairman:
“There has been powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), to elect Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) chairman. If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting.”

DNC chair vote: live coverage

Here is a look at the clicker Democrats will use to register their votes, courtesy of Frank Leone, a DNC member from Virginia. Members will also fill out paper ballots that will be collected for a later audit.
There are believed to be several dozen members that are not on hand who instead sent proxies to register their votes.

Obama, Democratic ‘super group’ unite to end gerrymandering, win state races, reclaim majorities
democratsTHEY HONESTLY THINK THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY HAVEN’T GOTTEN THEIR MESSAGE OUT.  THE ACTUAL PROBLEM IS, IT HAS. AND IT’S BEEN SOUNDLY REJECTED.

“America needs non-partisan redistricting commissions,” O’Malley said at Boston College Law School, where he’s now a visiting professor. “This simple reform … must become the new norm of American democracy. … How can we expect people to vote if their voice has been carved into irrelevance by a political map ahead of time?”

An early test for Democrats trying to win state-level races and stopping the Trump wave arrives this weekend.

Delaware is holding a special election for an open state Senate seat that will decided whether Democrats keep their roughly 40-year hold on the chamber.

“If we lose, a new Republican majority will take power and rubber-stamp every single one of Trump’s hateful policies,” the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee said in a recent fundraising letter. “They’ll grind all our progress to a halt.”

THE ACADEMY AWARDS ARE TOMORROW NIGHT. YEAH, I DON’T CARE EITHER.

Street Artist Mocks Hollywood And The Oscars With Fake Movie Posters
Conservative artist Sabo created fake movie posters to mock Hollywood and the Oscars ahead of Sunday’s show to send a message to celebrities who keep attacking President Donald Trump.

The Los Angeles based street artist plastered the movie posters and “fake Redbox kiosks” Thursday night he created in “hard to reach places” near where celebrities will be walking the red carpet at the 89th Academy Awards show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.


“Yeah, we wouldn’t have paid full price to watch any Oscar nominated movies either,” one of the sayings on the fake RedBox kiosks read.
“These pieces look so legit no one is thinking to take them down,” Sabo said. “It almost looks like a real Redbox ad. I consider this piece my representation of the discounting of Hollywood.”

Spicer: President Trump Will Not Watch The Academy Awards This Year

President Trump will not watch the Academy Awards Sunday night, press secretary Sean Spicer said at the briefing Wednesday.
“I’ve got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors Ball that night,” Spicer said when asked if Trump would be watching. “The first lady has put a lot of time into this event, welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital. I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night, so we’ll go from there.”

Before that, Spicer was asked why he thinks celebrities like Meryl Streep give politically charged speeches from the stage at awards shows.

“I have no idea. It’s a free country. I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions.”

Conservatives take over another Leftist Virtue Signaling hashtag

One of the Trump-Won-Butthurt-Left’s current memes is: If you don’t want men in the ladies rooms, you’re a bully.*

Yesterday, Lefties did one of their virtue signalling hashtag things — #IStandUpToBulliesBy — and Conservatives hijacked it.  ::snork::

  • #IStandUpToBulliesBy refusing to allow them to use their victimhood to silence me.
  • #IStandUpToBulliesBy not letting them force my daughter to share a bathroom with men.
  • #IStandUpToBulliesBy recommending @benshapiro’s “Bullies” to every conservative, libertarian, and classical liberal I know. #TruthToPower
  • #IStandUpToBulliesBy voting Republican.
  • #IStandUpToBulliesBy tweeting witty retorts that they don’t understand.
  • #IStandUpToBulliesBy crying, stamping my feet, and retiring to my safe space.

*The message this is sending to young girls — IF YOU DON’T MEEKLY SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF THE PENISES, YOU’RE AN INTOLERANT BULLY — makes me spitting mad!  I hoped that by blogging about it, I’d feel a little better, but I don’t.  I still really want to hit some privileged libtard male in the family jewels.

Chris Cuomo is a terrible person

Chris Cuomo, son of Mario Cuomo, is a television “journalist.”  He used to work for ABC, but now squats at CNN.

On Thursday, he went way too far Left on Twitter with his support for trannies using the bathrooms of their choice.  He caused such an uproar that he didn’t even appear on CNN afterwards.

Not that it stopped him.  On Friday, instead of apologizing, he doubled down.  Here are the worst examples of his apparently hours-long Twitter feed on the subject.

They Still Wonder Why They Lost

Day after day you read the latest acts of violence, hate, and hypocrisy and it gets to the point where it’s hard to gin up much outrage. The democrats are a persistent bunch, however, and sometimes they exceed even their own subterranean expectations. Yesterday was one of those days.
Remember Tom Hayden? The commie asshole who was porking Hanoi Jane for a while? A woman named Janet Nguyen, who escaped Vietnam in a small boat with her family, had the temerity to criticize him yesterday. (Yes, he’s dead, but that doesn’t matter to the left.)

Democrats Forcibly Remove Female GOP California State Senator From Senate Floor
Will the mainstream media make Republican California state Senator Janet Nguyen a star like they did with Democrat Texas state Senator Wendy Davis or Democrat U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for speaking truth to power as those liberal woman politicians were lionized by the media?
Video posted by the California Senate GOP Caucus shows Nguyen being forcibly removed from the Senate floor by Sergeants at Arms under orders from the Democrat majority as she spoke critically about the late state Senator Tom Hayden and his support for the communist regime in Vietnam which her family fled. Hayden passed away last October but was remembered by his Senate colleagues in speeches given on Tuesday. Nguyen chose to not participate or mar the remembrance of Hayden that day.
Complete video of the Nguyen incident was posted to YouTube by CBS Sacramento. Nguyen spoke about Hayden in Vietnamese at first. It was when she translated her remarks into English that she was shut down and eventually dragged away.

“Members, today I recognize in memory the millions of Vietnamese and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese refugees who died in seeking for freedom and democracy,” she said. “On Tuesday, you had an opportunity to honor Sen. Tom Hayden. With all due respect, I would like to offer this historical perspective …”
“Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen from the chamber,” Lara said. “Have her removed immediately. Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen, she is out of order…”
WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA, WHERE FREE SPEECH MUST BE PRE-APPROVED OR ELSE IT’S NOT TOLERATED.

I don’t have a violent bone in my body, but when I saw this I wanted to grab this prick by the throat and rip his tongue out.
This piece of liberal trash would be mixing paint at Home Depot were it not for his last name.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo Suggests 12 Year Old Girls Are The Problem If They Don’t Want To See A Male’s Genitals In Locker Rooms

CNN’s Chris Cuomo thinks that a 12 year old little girl is the problem if she doesn’t want to be in a locker room with a male where he can expose his genitals to her. He also said that if her father had a problem with it, he is either overprotective or intolerant. There are no words for the level of degeneracy this man has sunk to. What kind of society do we have when it’s not even a priority to protect our daughters from sexual perversion?









Texas policy forces transgender teen boy to wrestle against female athletes
On Friday, Mack Beggs, an undefeated high school wrestler from Texas, will compete at the girl’s state tournament in suburban Houston.
But unlike the rest of the teen’s female competitors, Beggs, 17, is a boy.
For more than a year, the teen, who was born a girl, has been transitioning from female to male with the help of testosterone therapy.
Some of Beggs’ female competitors forfeited their matches in the regional meet, reported the Associated Press, out of apparent fear of injury because the 17-year-old is taking testosterone that could create a physical disadvantage.
Beggs wrestles in the 110-pound class, where his record is 52-0.
It was the parents and coaches, Mack Beggs wrote on social media, that were making waves, not the kids.
“The thing is, we want to wrestle each other. I feel so sick and disgusted by the discrimination not by the kids, the PARENTS AND COACHES,” the teen wrote on Facebook. “These kids don’t care who you put in front of them to wrestle. We just want to WRESTLE. THEY are taking that away from me and from the people I’m competing with.”

Philly’s Soda Tax By Democrats Causes Massive Job Loss
If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wait, you can’t stop people from drinking sodas and also reap huge tax receipts on the sales of soda at the same time,” then you’re at least two steps ahead of the City of Philadelphia, and you probably know by now where the rest of this story is going, too.

Democratic Senators Are Avoiding Town Halls
THEY’RE NOT AFRAID OF REPUBLICAN PROTESTERS, WE DON’T DO THAT.
IT’S THE HOWLING MOBS THEY CREATED AND ENCOURAGED.
Democratic Senators have been avoiding town halls with their constituents, even though ten of them are up for re-election in 2018.
Only been a few have taken on town halls, the New York Post reported on Friday.
Hillary Shields, a member of Kansas City Indivisible, said that her Senator skipping out on an invitation for a town hall suggests that lawmakers are “afraid” of the people they represent.

TIPS for reading polls

Quinnipiac reports Donald Trump’s Total Approval is at 38%.  But on the same dates Quinnipiac sampled, Rasmussen showed Trump’s Total Approval at 53%, with 37% Strongly Approving.

Why the discrepancy? 

Quinnipiac skewed its data by undersampling Republicans and oversampling Democrats.

Polls are not that hard to read, but you do need to work at it. 

Regardless of how you feel about the reported result, DON’T JUST TRUST A HEADLINE!

TIPS FOR READING POLLS

Check the dates the poll was actually conducted. If any major event occurred AFTER that date that would have affected how people responded, look for a more recent poll.  The earlier one may be useful as a comparison, but it won’t be significant as a measure of current public opinion.

Check if the respondents were randomly selected or self-selected (like an on-line poll).  Ignore the latter.

Check the total sample size.  Ignore any national poll whose sample is fewer than 1,000.

Check the nature of the sample. A good poll will tell you what percentage of respondents were in significant groups for that poll. E.g., a political poll will list percentages for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.  Google for the current statistics for the nation and ignore the poll if the percentages are way off.

The Quinnipiac poll has Trump’s Total Approval way too low, because its sample — 25% Republicans, 34% Democrats, and 33% Independentswas too far off from our current national breakdown of 28% Republicans, 25% Democrats, and 25% Independents.

Check if the poll reports the MOE (Margin of Error).  If it doesn’t, ignore it.  If it does, keep in mind that the MOE means whatever number is reported for a specific result is meaningful for the entire population within plus or minus the MOE.

E.g., A 50% result with an MOE of ±1 means that the overall truth of that result is between 49% and 51%.

If the above are good, then dive into the actual questions asked.  A good poll will not ask absurd or leading questions and will rotate the order of the answers offered to avoid bias.  If the poll does not offer you a look at the questions, ignore it

“Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.” (Ps 119:35)

Please join me today in praying for and making sacrifices on behalf of President Trump.  I read on Facebook that Satanists plan to perform a curse against him today.  Maybe you think that’s silly.  I don’t.  I believe we are in a spiritual battle here and we need to step up and be PRAYER WARRIORS for CHRIST.

#CNNLeaks: Project Veritas Releases Over 100 Hours of Audio From Inside CNN

At the end of the piece, CNN honcho admits that polls aren’t about reporting on public opinion, but about molding and shaping it.  They didn’t want to use the latest polling data because it didn’t fit their agenda.

CtH: I just emailed them to offer my help transcribing an hour of tape. 

From Project Veritas Facebook:  

“The White House just called to say that the CNN audio we just released ‘is so cool’.”
