Left Wingers are Dimwitted

The left is chasing this whole Ukraine “charge” like dimwitted cops in a movie trying to take down our anti-hero.

The dimwitted left wingers are taking the bait again. This time on this “email” from an official in the Pentagon. All the email really tells you is someone didn’t like the hold up. What it doesn’t change at all is the aid was delivered within the time allotted, even though it wasn’t delivered as soon as it was released.

But in the end, the left just can’t help themselves. They’re operating on the assumption Biden was destined to win the DNC nomination. Don’t try to convince them, but that absolutely, positively never was assured, unless there’s corruption. Consequently, that was always a weak argument, because there’s plenty of reason for people to reject Biden.

Biden’s mental health, first and foremost, is on a lot of people’s mind. There are far too many physical health concerns as well, considering the sudden blood vessel rupture on national tv and the tired look he seems to have. Overall, Biden often seems out of it on stage when out campaigning.

Anyone who thinks Biden is some kind of shoe-in is out of their mind, because history has shown repeatedly, a person can come out of nowhere and get the nomination weeks out from the convention. All it requires is an existing candidate to pledge their delegates to the new candidate. It can also happen during the nominating convention itself… It’s called a brokered convention.

Democrats need someone who can actually spar linguistically with Trump on stage, with the same energy level, all without making a clown of themselves.

Do you really think Biden could do that? Trump will probably have Biden so pissed off, he’d burst blood vessels in both eyes and have a stroke on the spot.

To make matters worse, democrat dimwittedness prevents them from understanding that tugging on the “Ukraine” string, helps Trump and undoes Biden.

It wasn’t until after the Council on Foreign Relations conference in 2018, where Joe Biden gleefully retold the story of firing the prosecutor investigating Burisma, that Trump started reaching out to Ukraine.

Trump supporters understand this, and Trump supporters also think, with just cause I might add, that something dirty was going on in Ukraine with the Bidens. Anyone with even a passing understanding of the situation can’t help, but see it as dirty. MSNBC, CNN, and other news outlets will ignore this story to their own peril. If they actually did some, you know, reporting, they would have known a long time ago the Steele Dossier was bullshit, and the Biden-Ukraine story is the real deal. Ignoring the story, like ignoring the FISA abuse story, doesn’t make it go away. All that Trump is doing is dangling this string, which helps bring the story to light.

But what really exposes the absolute and total hypocrisy of the left’s entire outrage theatre is that it’s premised on the idea a president and his administration can’t ask a foreign country to conduct an investigation of person from an opposing political party who’s running for president. They’re so certain of this angle, but it seems they’ve forgotten that argument undercuts the “legality” of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. See, that investigation involved a president giving approval to the FBI to solicit foreign assistance in investigating a candidate for president of an opposing party.

Are they trying to say, “What’s good for the goose, isn’t good for the gander?”

I would conclude yes, but so many dyed in the wool left wingers seem to think Obama using the FBI made it all ok and legitimate.

Really? Really? REALLY?

Well, now we know the investigation was started on the barest of “predication” in July of 2016. The investigators ignored any exculpatory evidence or it was altered. I’d imagine the FBI did this to keep the investigation going as long as possible. By February of 2017, the FBI knew the Steele Dossier was total bs, but they kept that to themselves, and the left wing worked tirelessly to keep up the charade.

It’s almost like MSNBC doesn’t think we the people don’t go back and look at old episodes of Madcow. That woman is Alex Jones level of certifiableness. She’s insane. So insane in fact, I bet she looks under her bed every night just to make sure Putin isn’t hiding under there.

Don Lemon and black holes… need I say more?

That kind of news isn’t really in demand anymore, except to the true believers.

If MSNBC and the rest were smart, instead of trying to make a federal case out of Trump asking for an investigation, instead seriously look into what the president wanted investigated. If they did that, instead of chasing the dwindling numbers of true believers they could increase their viewers simply by being fair.

Business Insider: The biggest culture shocks I faced after moving to a town of 2,300

I’m a coastal liberal — and I was forced to see things from another perspective

I moved to a small town at just the right time in national politics. It feels like the conservative/liberal divide has grown to absurd proportions, and in part it’s become a geographic divide as well as a social one.

I’m a coastal liberal who now lives around rural conservatives, and living here has forced me to see things from another perspective.

My town was settled mostly by Latter-day Saints who worked in ranching and farming. There’s still cattle and farmland interspersed between the burgeoning neighborhoods. Many of the county elders and large landowners are still Mormon farmers and ranchers, and religion is such a big part of life that leaving the church can mean for some people losing social and family ties.

I’ve come to understand the fear some small-town residents have of technology and new ways of working. In cities, people embrace new industries powered by tech and don’t think twice about the demise of agricultural jobs. But when you were raised to be a cowboy, it can be frustrating to discover the only way you can make enough money to buy a house involves computers. I’ve seen this frustration unfortunately get aimed at newcomers to my town, many of whom are college-educated coastal liberals who ride bikes and skis instead of horses.

I would not have seen this very real problem fueling rural discontent had I never left LA, even if I feel like some of that anger is directed at me. But I’ve also gained a new perspective on national issues that I would have missed had I stayed in the city.

For example, after Donald Trump’s election, I saw memes and posts from friends in California talking about how their state should secede, or how sparsely populated states should have their electoral college votes or senate representation reduced.

My first thought was water: Many of the rivers they depend on in California come from headwaters up here. As the saying goes, in Wyoming, “whiskey’s for drinking, and water’s for fighting over.” When I pointed out that to disregard these states could result in dire consequences for water-hungry California, I got attacked by people with whom I agree on 99% of the issues.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Editorial: Satire vs fake news

In the battle between Babylon Bee and Snopes, all you need to know is this: most of the people who turn to Snopes to fact check something are people on the left, thus more likely than not left wingers are forwarding these satirical articles to Snopes for fact checking. Sadly the humorless left wing scowls at Snopes, like Dan Evon, are so butthurt over this very good satire from Babylon Bee they feel compelled to attack.

It’s time to give up on Snopes entirely.

Dan “I’m a butthurt left winger” Evon

Fact-checking is important in this age of fake news, and Snopes has done some decent investigative work through the years. But the organization should know when to leave well enough alone.

Last week Snopes “fact-checked” an article titled “Georgia Lawmaker Claims Chick-fil-A Employee Told Her To Go Back To Her Country, Later Clarifies He Actually Said ‘My Pleasure’.” First, that headline is way too long. Second, why is a company wasting time fact-checking a site clearly labeled satire?

What will be “investigated” next? Crop circles?

Snopes writer Dan Evon wrote, “While this real-world incident stirred up a good amount of online anger, it wasn’t quite outrageous enough for the entertainment website Babylon Bee. In an apparent attempt to maximize the online indignation, this website published a fictionalized version of the story . . .”

In an apparent attempt? There’s no apparent. That’s exactly what the Bee does. Would you expect an outlet that publishes headlines like “Border Patrol Agent Calls Up Planned Parenthood To Get Helpful Pointers On Separating Children From Their Mothers” to be subtle or sneaky in its attempts to drive web traffic?

Mr. Evon went on to accuse the Bee of fooling its readers. But it seems pretty clear that readers of the Babylon Bee know what they’re getting into. Want proof? Just look at the Facebook comments.

The Babylon Bee says it has lawyered up, and we’re sure that a satire news organization going to court will provide some fantastic material for future headlines. But Snopes should know better than to pick fights with a site clearly labeled as satire news. It’s called picking your battles.
